 Numerical Value – Eighty


Methuselah – Genesis 5:25

“…when Methuselah had lived one hundred and eighty-seven years…”

He was the Grandfather of Noah, whose name means “rest”.

Eighty – richness, fatness, oil – shine. Used to anoint objects or kings!

Overall richness, strength (as a surplus above the perfect “seven”).

From the Strong’s Hebrew definition #8084 & #8083 of the first mention for “eighty”

Psalm Eighty One: 10 “Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.”


Noah…”And the dove came back to him (Noah) in the evening, and behold, in her mouth was a freshly plucked olive leaf.”

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Red Flowers

Field of red “buttercup” Anemone flowers on hillside in Israel

In an effort to “lighten up”

and have more “fun“,

RED Flower photo was captured

on a hillside looking towards Nazareth in

Israel on my first trip 2011.


As is my nature, went looking for the

name Anemone in Hebrew.

Found “Anem”two fountains.

A town in Issachar. Scripture (1Chron6:73) noted.


Yep, “…and Anem with it’s pasturelands.” 1Chron6:73

Anem – Hebrew Word #6046 – Anem (aw-name’)

meaning “two fountains”

from root Word #5869

(I love looking for the “Root” word!)

#5869 – “ayin” (ay-yin) definition:

analogy a fountain (as the eye of the landscape).


 

Hebrew 3 letters root pictures are:

Ayin for eye;

Yood for closed hand or “work”; (Generally refers to God’s hand)

Noon for fish or “life activity”.

In the context speaking to my heart –

The eye to see, the work of God’s, life activity!

Beautiful RED Anemone flowers!


 

Double fountain – seeing with my eyes

and believing in my heart,

“And God said, Let the earth

sprout vegetation, plants, yielding seed…

and God saw that it was good.”

Genesis 1:11-12 ESV


Thank you Cee’s Foto Challenge.

This was “good!”

The Fire to Turn the Heart

My Dad and I
My Dad and I

“And he will turn the hearts of the fathers

 to their children and the hearts of the children

 to their fathers…” Malachi 4:16 (ESV)

 

I’m perplexed, daily,

by this last verse in the Old Testament.

“…to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children…”

How is this accomplished Lord? 


 

I was blessed with a wonderful earthly father

whose heart was always

turned toward me.

Even when I needed a beating

for making a wrong choice or

heading down the path of destruction.

In his love and attention,

I always knew his heart was for me.

His life choices reflected this truth

I felt it in my heart.


 

2015-12-19 Hearts turned - door

Daily I see,

Children who once came through

the open school door

happy and smiling.

Now enter,

as dead men,

with rattling chains

and bones.

 

When a passing smile in the hallway,

brought joy and a smile in return from theirs.

Now, a trip to the Office for a “belly ache”

and a tear of truth no band aide,

or remedy can cure.

 

“He will turn the father’s hearts to the children.”


 

Lord, we need Your Holy Spirit more and more.

Draw them Lord,

Lead them home,

Fetch their wandering eyes,

And bring their fathers home.

 

The hearts of Your children are broken.

Sadden by the choices their parents do make.

In this season of joy and gladness,

You are the Miracle it takes!

 

No hug or smile will bind the wounds

Too deep to aide or cover.

Lord, I’m asking You restore,

Repair,

and return their parents,

One to Love each other.

 

May Your Holy Spirit burn brighter

Than any Christmas tree,

As You heal the hearts of

Your children, and

Return their fathers

To Thee.”

 

Come home


 

What’s the answer Lord?

New Testament Scripture Truth: (Same Scripture as Malachi 4:16) 

“And he (speaking John his name means Grace in Hebrew)

…and he will go before Him (speaking of Jesus) in the

Spirit and power of Elijah (Grace)

To turn the hearts of the fathers to

The children…”Luke 1:16-17 (ESV)

John’s first words to the people,

“I baptize you with water,

 but He Who is mightier than I is coming

…He will baptizing you

 with the Holy Spirit

 and fire.” Luke 3:16 (ESV)


Life truth:

It takes the Grace of Christ,

And the Power of His Holy Spirit

To “turn” and change the

Hearts of men and women

To their children.

Jesus is the Miracle

Of this Season,

The Light, Truth and Power

Beyond ALL of man’s reason!

God bless and may there be

Joy, healing and

Restoration

as

Hearts “turn” to the

Father.

In Jesus Name.

The Wonder of His Complete Simplicity

The Wonder of His Simplicity
The Wonder of His Complete Simplicity

My friend texted

last night.

 A few years back,

we prayed together,

asking

the Lord to move

and work in a

specific area in her life.

 

In His timing, 

with no fanfare

or headline news,

 

He has opened

the door

for us to see

this request

brought to fruition. 


 

In complete awe, and

amazement

of God’s hand, and

His willingness to

Hear and

Answer

the following words

were penned in my

morning prayer. 


 “Lord, You are

not about

Publicity.

You are about

Simplicity.

Going about

and doing

good

to those

Who need

a touch from You.

A miracle of

Healing.

A Word of

Comfort too.

You are

EXTRAVAGANTLY

WONDERFUL

And I worship

You!”

Poem by denisebalog


As is my nature,

I went looking to see if the word,

“simplicity”

Is found in the Concordance.

Yes, what a surprise

and more amazing,

its definition!

 

“Simplicity – #8537 – tom (tome) (Strong’s Concordance)

“A masculine noun meaning – completeness, integrity – full, integrity,

Perfect, simplicity, upright.

See #8550 – Tummiym – perfections…one of the epithets

of the objects in

The high-priest’s breastplate

as an Emblem

of complete Truth – Thummim.” 

The high-priest breastplate.
The high-priest breastplate.

 

I encourage you to

Continue to pray.

Trusting,

in His

Simplicity

to answer

In

Completeness,

Fullness,

Integrity,

And Truth!

In Jesus Name,

Amen!


 

The Hebrew letters for Simplicity

tom – are Tav, Mem

Tav – CrossMiracle, Sign, Covenant

Mem – WaterHoly Spirit’s movement

Simplicity – the Miracle or Sign of the Holy Spirits’ Movement.

Standing in the Peace of Praise!

The trip to the Holy Land is grueling.

Eleven days of hard pushing.

No vacation for the seeking pilgrim.

My friend found her way to “stand”

through the opposition of

hard pressed.


 

 – Crawling out of bed,

falling to her knees.

Carpet fibers mixed

with muddled words

of pain and prayer.

“Lord, how do I

make it though

this day?”

“How do I stand?”

 From the depths of where

Peace resides,

She rises.

Not in her

Own power or will.

She “stands” in His. –

The power is not in the activity of standing.

It’s in the Peace of praise

Stationed within the heart.


 

“I’m thanking You, God,

From a full heart,

I’m writing the book

On Your wonders.

I’m whistling,

Laughing,

And jumping

For joy;

I’m singing

Your song,

Holy God.”

Psalm 9:1 (The Message)

Secured to the Door of Rest

“The LORD has taught me more in rest,

Than when I’ve strived for my best…”

Poem by denisebalog©

First mention of Strive

“And the LORD said,

 ‘My Spirit

Shall not strive

with man forever.” in Genesis 6:3 (NKJV)

 

Strive – duwn (doon) the root of #1777 (Strong’s Concordance)

The Door – Secured/Nailed – to life activity!

 

“Then Jesus said to them again…

I AM the Door…(NKJV) John 10:7

Anyone who goes through Me

Will be cared forwill freely

Go in and out, and find pasture…

I came so they can have

Real and eternal life,

More and better life than

They ever dreamed of.”

John 10:9-10 The Message

Yep, Jesus has taught me more

In rest,

than I have ever dreamed of,

Or when I have

Strived at my very best!

Morning view – do you see “success”?

Morning quiet time.

In my view, through the window,

is the gas grill.

I couldn’t see the flowers planted on the other side of the grill,

but I know they are there,

Morning view - success - 1
Morning view – success

because I planted them.

Morning view - success
Morning view – success

Made me think of heaven.

I can’t see heaven,

but I know it is there

beautiful…like the flowers.

Morning view - photo 3
Morning view – success

Brought to mind what Jesus said to Thomas,

Blessed are those who have not seen

and yet have believed. “ John 20:29 (NKJV)


I also thought of a promise to me…

“And blessed is she who believed

that there would be a fulfillment

of what was spoke to her from the LORD.” Luke 1:45 (ESV)

 Not seen, but believed…


I thought of “success”.

What does it mean?

Do I want success?

I wondered if “success” was in the Concordance.

Yes, right therebut look,

the word immediately after

“success” is “Succoth.”

What does that mean?

“Booth” or for our western minds “tent”.

 

The letters are Samach, Kaf, Tav…

Sukkoth (sook-kohth) – booth, tent (Hebrew word & pictures displayed below)

Resting Under the Cover of the Cross!!

 

Went looking for the first mention of “Succoth.”

Genesis 33:17…our beloved Jacob.

Starting with verse 33:12.

“Then Esau said, “Let us journey on our way

and I will go ahead of you.

Look at that,

Esau, the “world” says “let us” go on our way…”

But

Jacob’s said…

“Let my lord pass on ahead of his servant,

and I will lead on slowly or “gently”…at the pace of the children”

Sounds like my Jesus…Respectful, humble,

gentle, compassionate.

“Come to Me, all who labor.. and I will give you rest…

I am gentle…

You will find rest…” Matthew 11:28-29 (ESV)

 

“So Esau returned that day on his way.

But Jacob journeyed to Succoth,

and built himself a house

and booths for his livestock.

Therefore the name of the place

is called “Sukkoth.” Verses 16-17

 

We can go the way of Esau

making ourselves as the world

and going their way to “success”

(remember Esau “returned” to the way he came.)

OR

we can be Jacob…

resting under the cover of

God’s house,

His Word,

and His promises to us.

Going gently, at a slower place.

 

Resting under the cover (Succoth – booth – tent) of the Cross

Finding all our “successes” are in Him Who loves us!

 

Sharing my journey through Scriptures

and the Hebrew word pictures.

Please feel free to share yours.

Deeper Treasures

“Depend of the LORD in whatever you do

 and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3

This verse was on the bottom of my journal page…Isn’t He sweet!

And guess what? The number 16

(from Proverbs 16:3) represents

the sixteenth Hebrew letter Ayin – an eye.

To see, to know, to understand.

Doing a happy dance in the land of Succoth today!!

Tav – Cross – a covenant, a sign, a miracle

 The word picture for Tav changed from what 

we would recognized as a “cross” when the Jewish nation

went into the Babylonian captivity time period.

Be still, and know…Psalm 46:10

“Be still and know,” as treasure hunt deeper into the Hebrew letter pictures unfolds. The Hebrew word for “still” is raphah רפה (raw-faw’) The definition is to slacken, to relax, to remove the hand. The three letter word picture רפה reveals a clue. (Hebrew reads right to left)

Reysh  ר – picture of the head of man or the “first”

Pey  פ – picture of a mouth or “word”

Hey  ה – picture of a window or behold. (We are looking to behold Jesus through the window of Hey so the picture can illustrate Grace)

Studying the clues of raphah  רפה the first – word – grace –

Ok, so what was the first word or first mention of “grace” in Scripture?

“Noah found grace in the eyes of God.” Genesis 6:8 KJV

Thinking on this…Noah’s name in Hebrew means “rest.”

What did Noah rest in knowing?

Noah “rested” in knowing he found grace or favor in God’s eyes.

“Grace” in Hebrew is a masculine noun (remember a noun is a person, place or thing) meaning kindness, and unmerited favor or regard in God’s sight.

Concealed in the Hebrew word raphah רפה for “still” is a visual picture of resting in Grace.

Thank You Lord, when sudden storms of uncertainty flare up, or the chaff of emotions threaten to sweep me away, in Your lovingingkindness, You speak, “Peace, be still,” and I rest secure in the mention of Your Mighty Name – Jesus!

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He love us… seated us with Him in the heavenly places… so that…He might show the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-7 (ESV)
