Praising Yahweh

 

 
 
 

 

 
Through Yahweh We Shall Do Valiantly, For it is He Who Shall Tread Down Our Adversaries.

The Power of Praising Yahweh

People Ask Me a Lot How Do I Keep My Joy.  Normally, I Answer, “I Don’t Know, I Just Don’t Dwell On the Negative.”  But, this Weekend While Our Church Congregation Worked Together Under Close Quarters, it Was Like I Snuck Up On Myself and I Caught Myself Doing Something that I Have Been Doing For a Long Time.  I Always Have Today’s, “Happy Thought”, Running in My Mind, (Just Like in Hook ~ the Movie), and if You Can’t Think of One, You Can Borrow One of Mine.  If You Know of Some, Please Pass Them On to Me.  Here is Another “Happy Thought” for Today~!  I’m Sure it Will Bless You Also.  https://youtu.be/DV_3qx-oBms

When One is Working Closely with Folks, there is Always an Opportunity to Lose Your Joy.  We Must Be Ready For that Moment to Strike, or We’ll Be in Trouble For, “The Joy of Yahweh is OUR STRENGTH.”  Always Have, “A Happy Thought,” in Your Mind Sitting On The, “Ready” to Divert the Enemy’s Plans.  My Happy Thought Was This.

One of the Young Boys at Our Church Came Up to Me.  He’s 3½ or So.  I Was Wearing My Overalls, and So Was He.  As He Came Up to Me, He Tugged On My Overalls and Said, “I Like Your PawPaw’s.”

So, Later On When Someone in Our Group or a Customer Said or Did Something to Me that Just ‘Caught’ Me the Wrong Way, I Would Turn and Smile and Under My Breath Say, “I Like Your PawPaw’s.”  A Certain Pastor that I Know Says, “They’re Just Having a Bad Hair Day,” So that He Can Go On with Joy.

 
 
 
 
 

Another Time When I Worked Technical Support, the Standing Joke that We Told Each Other Especially After the Holidays When We Visited Our Kin Folks Was, “Hey, You Work in Technical Support, Would You Take a Look at My Washing Machine?”

At Another Time, a 3 Year Old Girl Was at a Camp Site While We Were Camping, and She Heard the Frogs in a Nearby Stream.  She Said, “M R Wogs.”  Children Are an Outstanding Source of, “Happy Thoughts.”  If You Don‘t Have Small Children, Go Talk to One.

So, When I Was in California Witnessing On the Streets of Huntington Beach When a Tough Looking Biker Dude Saw Me Approaching People After People and as I Came Near Him, He Stood Up and Pointed His Finger at Me and Said Gruffly, “Just Do Yourself a Favor and Turn Around and Walk the Other Way, Man.”  Thoughts Like, “What Are You Afraid of?”  Came to My Mind.  But, ALL that Would Do is Provoke an Argument, (Strife).  So, I Thought it Best to Do as He Said, and Let Him See My Joy.  I Smiled at Him Real Big and Turned, But Under My Breath I Was Saying, “M R Wogs.”

 
 
 
 
 

However, Just Having Positive, “Happy Thoughts” is Not Enough.  There Has to Be Some Word From Yahweh to Connect You Back to “The Joy of Yahweh.”

Philippians 4:8 Says, “For the Rest, Brethren, Whatever is True, Whatever is Worthy of Reverence and is Honorable and Seemly, Whatever is Just, Whatever is Pure, Whatever is Lovely and Lovable, Whatever is Kind and Winsome and Gracious, If there is Any Virtue and Excellence, If there is Anything Worthy of Praise, Think On and Weigh and Take Account of these Things [Fix Your Minds On Them].”

Psalm 87:2 States it this Way ~ Yahweh Loves the Gates of Zion More than ALL the Dwellings of Jacob.  What’s So Special About the Gates?  Revelation 21:21 Tells Us that Each of the Gates in the New Jerusalem Are Made of a Pearl.  Is God Like an Admirer of Great Architecture that Loves the Gates of Zion More than ALL the Dwellings of Jacob?  Maybe.  No, Rather, Pearls Are Formed Because an Irritant, a Piece of Sand that Enters an Oyster, or Hardship.  The Pearls of Great Price, Are Pearls of Sacrifice~!

Praising Yahweh in the Difficult Times, is Much Like a Butterfly that Has to Endure the Hardship of Pressing in and Breaking Free From its Cocoon.  If You Find a Cocoon and Help the Butterfly by Opening the Cocoon Early, the Butterfly Will Die.  It‘s the Struggle to Get Out that Builds the Butterfly‘s Strength.  They Wouldn’t Call it a ‘Hardship’ if it Wasn’t Hard to Do.

Giving is Something that We Do Voluntarily.  If a Child Sees You and Runs to Hug You, That’s Awesome~!  But, it’s Not Something that I Can Force Them to Do.  It’s a Gift, it is Given Without Compulsion.

Yahweh Loves the Gates of Praise that Were Made by Us Volunteering Giving The ‘Sacrifice of Praise’ to Yahweh Continually Which is the Fruit of Our Lips Giving Praise For Triumph in the Midst of a HardShip Situation that Caused a, “Window of Heaven” to Be Opened So that We Could Have the Victory~!  (Hebrews 13:15).  Standing Firm On Yahweh‘s Word, (Isaiah 7:9), During Those Times of Tribulation, Giving Yahweh Honor & Glory For Things Not Yet Accomplished, Calling Those Things that Be Not as if they Were Already Done, (Romans 4:17), Touches Yahweh According to Psalm 87:2.

 
 
 
 
Enter Into His Gates with Thanksgiving
 

We Are Told to, “Enter into His Gates with Thanksgiving, and into His Courts with Praise.  Be Thankful to Him, and Bless His Name,” Psalm 100:4, (NKJV).  Each Gate Represents, “Thanksgiving.”  It’s Like When Those People Build You a New Home in Seven Days and You See it From the Outside When they ‘Move the Bus’, You Might Express Thanks, But as You Cross The Threshold and Come into the House, (or Come into the Inner ‘Courts’ and You See the 48” Plasma TV and the Dolby Digital 8.1 THX Surround Sound Speaker System Intergraded into an Awesome Computer), You Go From Thanking to Praising~!

I Don’t Know if I Got My Point Across Well, Thanking is Like Before You Get Come In, And Praise is the Moment You Cross Over the Threshold of ‘Hoping’, to ‘Knowing’ that You Have It~!  This ‘Knowing’ Could Be While You’re Still On this Planet, and the Situation Stays the Same in the Natural.  But, in the Spirit, Things Have Shifted, and You ‘Know’ it.  Hang it there, Soon You’ll See it Manifest in the Natural~!

That is Because We Are Already Seated in the Heavenly Places, (Ephesians 2:6), Now, While We Are On the Earth.  So, that Means that We Are to Give Thanks and Praise Now Just Like it is Done, and then it Will Be.  Food For Thought, This Makes the Gate Keeper‘s Job More Important than We First Thought.

 
 
 
 
Pearls of Great Price~!

So, Each of these Pearls Were Made at a Great Cost~!  Sometimes, We Had to Praise Yahweh For Prosperity When it Looks Like We’re Not Making Much Money and Have Lots of Bills to Pay Because Isaiah 45:3 Tells Us there is Given Unto Us the ‘Treasures of Darkness’ and ‘Hidden Riches of Secret Places’.  Other Times We Had to Give Thanks and Praise When We’ve Been Fighting a Cold For Six Months, and it Looks Like in the Nature it Will Not End that ‘By His Stripes We Were Healed’.  We Praise Until We Have a ‘Break-Through’, (2 Samuel 5:20). These are Pearls that the Gates Are Made of.

This is The, “Sacrifice of Praise”, That Is, The Fruit of Our Lips, Giving Thanks” to His Name.”  It’s Easy to Praise When Things Are Going Well, But Harder When Things Are Going Rough and Even More Difficult When The ‘Rough’ Has Been Going on for a Long Time, or the Certain Weakness that We’re Trying to Overcome and We Fall Back into Doing it Once More.  It’s Like, “Thanking Yahweh and Praising Him From Delivering You From Smoking, While You’re Still Huffing Away On a Cigarette.”  It is the Sacrifice of Praise as Stated in Hebrews 13:15,Therefore by Him Let Us Continually Offer The Sacrifice of Praise to God, That Is, The Fruit of Our Lips, Giving Thanks” to His Name.”  Notice How, This Praise Cannot Be Silent,” ~ The Fruit of Our Lips, Giving Thanks” to His Name,” (Psalm 30:1-4, 11-12).

Watch and Hear Ron Kenoly Singing “Morning Into Dancing”, (https://youtu.be/YkhvXCUEyuc).

For His Joy Has Come Where there Once Was Only Hurt, He Gave His Healing Hand.  Where there Once Was Only Pain He Brought Comfort Like a Friend.  I Feel the Sweetness of His Love Piercing My Darkness.  I See the Bright and Morning Sun as it Ushers in His Joyful Gladness.  You’ve Turned My Mourning into Dancing Again.  You’ve Lifted My Sorrows and I Can’t Stay Silent.  I Must Sing For Your Joy Has Come.  Where there Once Was Only Hurt You Gave Your Healing Hand.  Where the Once Was Only Pain You Brought Comfort Like a Friend.  I Feel the Sweetness of His Love Piercing My Darkness.  I See the Bright and Morning Sun as it Ushers in Your Joyful Gladness.  Your Anger Lasts For a Moment in Time But Your Favor is Here and Will Be On Me For All My Life Time.

So These Gates Are Built On the Praise that Comes From Our Mouths to Yahweh, Repeating Back to Him What He Said He Will Do, (Faith ~ Isaiah 55:11).  Is It Any Wonder that, “Yahweh Loves the Gates of Zion More than ALL the Dwellings of Jacob”  We Are ALL Called to Praise When the Situation Seems Impossible.  Click Here to Watch Ron Kenoly Praising Yahweh or Click On the Link Below From YouTube.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

So, How Does this Apply to You?  Well, You Can Begin to Dwell On Verses Like this One.  Philippians 1:6 ~ “Being Confident of this Very Thing, that He Who Has Begun a Good Work in You Will Complete it Until the Day of Jesus Christ.”  So, Every Time You See Someone; Even if it’s Someone You Can’t Stand, or Even if it’s a Person that You Think is a Whiner or a Loser, or Maybe it‘s You that You Can‘t Stand, “Then Say this Scripture About Them or You Under Your Breath Especially if You Are Going to Just ‘Try to Be Nice to Them’.

By the Way, You’re Going to Fail if You ‘Try to Be Nice to Them’, in Your Own Strength.  Yahoshua, Who is Our Example, (John 13:15; 1 Peter 2:21), Says, “I Can Do Nothing of Myself,” (John 5:19; 30).  So, if Yahoshua Can’t, then We Can’t Either.  Allow Yahweh to Love Them Through You.  Make Up Your Mind to Forgive Them of ALL Appearances, Smells, and Even Stuff that they Don’t Know is Offensive.  (See More On Being Thankful and Walking in Love by Clicking On This Thanksgiving Link).

 
 
 
 
 

But, as You Speak the Word Over People, and Start Praising Yahweh For Changing You into the Person that You Want to Become, You Are Opening a Gate Between Heaven and Earth Like When Jacob Met God at Bethel, (which Means House of God), and Saw the Angels Ascending and Descending.

Then He Dreamed, and Behold, a Ladder Was Set Up On the Earth, and its Top Reached to Heaven; and there the Angels of God Were Ascending and Descending On it, (Genesis 28:12).

And He Was Afraid and Said, “How Awesome Is This Place!  This Is None Other than The House of God, and this Is The Gate of Heaven~!(Genesis 28:19)

We Are the House of God, (1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:16; John 14:23; Ephesians 2:19).  And Our Gates Are Made of Pearl, (Thanksgiving and Praise), that Came About Because of Hardship that We Praised Through Calling Those Things that Be Not as Thought they Were.  (Romans 4:17).  We Need to Get an Open Heaven by Opening Up a Gate So that Angels Can Ascend and Descend, (Click Here to See What Angels Respond to).

 
 
 
 

The Word, “Host  in the Scriptures Meant, “Army (Luke 2:13).  Let Us Perceive that the Hosts of Heaven Are Worshiping Armies, (Quoted From the Book Called, The Three Battlegrounds”, (by Francis Frangipane).  The Ultimate Form of Warfare is Worshipping Yahweh.  Meaning that as I Call Out the Name & the Title Yahweh Our Nissi, (the One Who Gives Us Victory), then Yahweh is Entitled to Become My Victory For Me, and as I Give Praise and Thanks to You, O Yahweh, I Praise and Give Thanks; Your Wondrous Works Declare that Your Name is Near, (Your Nature and Attributes) and as I Invoke Your Name, I Rehearse Your Wonders. (Nehemiah 1:11; Psalm 75:1 ~ Amplified Bible Classic Edition}.

Worship is Not Standing in the Congregation Saying, “Thank You Yahweh,”Thank You Yahweh, Oh We Worship You, Thank-You Yahweh, We Glorify Your Name”.  That’s More Like a Beginning of Praise, (and Praise is Not the Same as Worship).  That’s Like Standing Around in the Kitchen Saying, “I Make Cakes” or, “My Family Loves What I Bake,” Compared to Actually Blending the Eggs & Other Ingredients and Making a Cake.  It’s About the Same as Saying to You, “I Glorify Your Driving Ability,” Compared to Talking to You Personally and Saying, “You Drive Well, and Always Make Me Feel Safe and Comfortable When You Drive”.  One is Personal, (and that What Worship Is), and One is Third Person.

It Was Yahweh Who Showed Me that it is of More Value to Know Yahweh’s Character in Language that We ALL   Understand.  The Hebrew~Chaldee Titles of Yahweh Were Given Only Because the People Spoke Hebrew Giving Them Good Descriptions of Yahweh in a Way that they Could Relate.  So, there is Nothing More ‘Mysterious’, ‘Miraculous’, ‘Elusive’, or ‘Supernatural’ About Using the Hebrew or Greek Titles of Yahweh, than Using the Words We Know.

I’ll Show You What I Mean.  Yahweh is King Over ALL the Earth.  So, One of Yahweh’s Name is Yahweh And His Title is King.  But, it Doesn’t Make Sense For Me to Address King Yahweh as Yahweh Our Melek, as I Understand What the Word King Means, And Melek is Not in My Vocabulary.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

For Yahweh is the King of ALL the Earth; Sing Praises with Understanding.

(Psalm 47:7, 9 ~ The Princes of the Peoples Are Gathered Together, the People of the God of Abraham.  For the Shields of the Earth Belong to God. He is Greatly Exalted~!), “I Work Here, I’m a Cop, I Carry a Badge, (or Shield); and that Badge Number On Dragnet Just Happens to Be 714, (that Would Be 2 Chronicles 7:14).

However, they Make Nice Labels For Me Today to Know the Character of Yahweh, (Like He is a King).  For Example, The Hebrew~Chaldee Words of Yahweh Yowm Amas Means, “Yahweh Who Carries Me Daily.”  Well, I Didn’t Know that there Was a Title For Yahweh as Yahweh Who Carries Me Daily.  Now, I Know.  I Can Say Every Day, “Yahweh, (Who Carryings Me Daily), I Thank You, “Abba, Father, I Thank You that You Carry Me Daily, and Daily Load Me with Benefits.” (Psalm 103:4; Romans 8:15).

I Wouldn’t Have Known this Except For Finding the Hebrew Title, But Now that You Have Both Available Here, then You May Not Need the Hebrew Title.

One Way is Not Better than Another; However, the Way that Conveys to You What You Are Saying is the Best.  But, Using the Hebrew Titles in Public Puts Distance Between the Congregation and What I Am Trying to Convey, and they Are Not Drawn Corporately in One Thought into the Presence of Yahweh.  I Always Like to Use Abba, Father, So that I Address Yahweh as Both My Father and the Title that Describes the Attribute that I Desire to Come Forth, (Abba Means Daddy, an Endearing Word).

I Included ALL the Hebrew-Chaldee & Greek Words Transliterated into English Words.  I Urge You to Study Over the Titles of Yahweh, Just So that You Can Know the Nature and Attributes of Yahweh.  However, if You Cannot Study the Titles of Yahweh, then Realize that Yahweh Told Moses that, “I Am..  In Other Words, “I Am Everything You Need,” (Present Tense, Whenever You Need it).  I Am Your Father, Provider, Healer, Deliverer, etc.  I Am. I Exist.

 
 
 

Now, Where this Comes into Play is When We Praise Yahweh For that Particular Attribute of Yahweh that We Need Right at this Moment in Our Life.  You Might Say, “I Praise You For Being Such a Good Example to Me as My Father.  Abba, Thank You For Your Tender-Mercies Towards Me and Showing Me How to Be a Good Parent.”   Or, Suppose, that You Were Being Accused of Something.  You Could Fight in Your Own Strength, or You Could Begin to Praise Yahweh For Being Your Defender.

Or You Could Find in the Titles of Yahweh Listed On the Next Several Pages that the Hebrew Title For The, “Yahweh Who Pleads Your Cause,” (Contends Against Those Who DisHonor You), is Yahweh Our Riyb Cherpah, and You Could Say, “I Praise You For Being Yahweh Who Pleads My Cause and Contends Against Those Who DisHonor Me”.    Or You Can Make Up Titles For Yahweh Since Yahweh Said that, “I Am Whatever You Need”.  I Thank You as Yahweh of Car Mechanics, or as Yahweh of Computers, or Yahweh of Algebra, or Yahweh of Organization, or Yahweh of Grocery Shopping.  Let Yahweh Be Allowed to Be in Your Daily Walk.  He Wants to Be, and as We Use Our Faith to Lift Up the Titles that Describe Him, This Entitles Him to Be What You Need.

I Give Praise and Thanks to You, O Yahweh, I Praise and Give Thanks; Your Wondrous Works Declare that Your Name is Near and as I Invoke Your Name, I Rehearse Your Wonders.  (Amplified Bible Classic Edition ~ Psalm 75:1).

Sing Praises to Yahweh, Who Dwells in Zion! Declare His Deeds Among the People.
(Psalm 9:11 ~ NKJ).

 
 
 

Praising Yahweh Brings Positive Results~!

In the Past, You Might Have Just Cried Out to Yahweh, “Oh, Yahweh, they Are Accusing Me, ‘Blah, Blah, Blah’, What Should I Have Done, or What Should I Do Now?”  This Gets No Results.  And Saying, “I Praise You Yahweh, I Worship You Yahweh”, is Not the Same as Praising Yahweh~!  Angels Are ALL Around You, Listening for Yahweh’s Word To Be “Spoken” by Us, Ready to Do Yahweh’s Will, and We Keep Saying that We Are Going to Worship Yahweh.  The Angels Are Saying, “Okay, Any Time Now, they Are Going to Worship Yahweh, and We Can Have Some Word to Act Upon,” and Yet We Never Do, and the Angels Have Nothing to Act On, (as They Only Can Respond or Hearken to The Voice of Yahweh’s Words Coming Out of Our Mouth ~ Psalm 103:20-21, Daniel 10:12, Luke 12:8).

Psalm 103:20-21 ~
20 Bless, (Affectionately, Gratefully Praise), Yahweh, You His Angels,
You Mighty Ones Who Do His Commandments, Hearkening to the Voice of His Word.
21 Bless, (Affectionately, Gratefully Praise), Yahweh, All You His Hosts,
You His Ministers Who Do His Pleasure, {His Will}.

Notice, the First Time Those that Bless Yahweh are Addressed as His Angels.  The Second Time This Group is Addressed as His Host.  Are They the Same Group?  I Believe that They Include Even the Universe and the Stars and the Angels and Us, (as We are in a Different Class than the Angels).  However, the Title as Yahweh; (of the Hosts), is His Name Appears Quite a Lot~!

These Are Just a Very Few Places Below that Yahweh of Hosts is Mentioned, Click or Tap Here to See 269 References in the Old Testament from the Lexham English Bible (LEB) that Yahweh of Hosts is Mentioned.

1 Samuel 1:3; 1 Samuel 17:45; Psalm 24:10; Isaiah 22:14; Isaiah 47:4; Isaiah 48:2; Isaiah 51:15; Isaiah 54:5; Jeremiah 2:19;
Jeremiah 10:16; Jeremiah 31:35; Jeremiah 46:18; Jeremiah 48:15; Jeremiah 50:25, 34; Jeremiah 51:19, 57; Amos 4:13;
Haggai 2:9; Zechariah 8:6; Malachi 2:16.

So David Went On and Became Great, and Yahweh, The God of Hosts Was With Him, (2 Samuel 5:10).

For Out of Jerusalem Shall Go a Remnant, and Those Who Escape From Mount Zion.  The Zeal of Yahweh of Hosts Will Do This, (2 Kings 19:31).

Not Everybody that Might Comprise of The Host are “His”; However Since it Said “His”, and Compared with Luke 2:13 where it Reads, “Suddenly a Great Company of The Heavenly Host Appeared with The Angel, and Joined In Praise to God”.  So, Angels as Mentioned in Psalm 103:20 Most Likely Is Referring to the Same Host as Mentioned in Psalm 103:21.  As the the Word “Armies” is Interchanged for “Host”, The Angels are The Ones that Actually Engage In Battle, and that’s Not Our Part.  Our Part is to Voice The Word of Yahweh that The Angels Respond To, (Psalm 103:20-21, Daniel 10:12, Luke 12:8).  More is Written About the Heavenly Host by that You Can Read by Clicking or Tapping on this LinkThis Link Will Provide a Most Exhaustive Explanation of the Word “Host”.

And the Later Part of Psalm 103:20-21 is Also Referring the Same Thing ~ Yahweh’s Words Equal Yahweh’s Will~!  So, You Can’t Just Bark Out Anything, but When You’re Voicing Yahweh’s Word Over a Situation Such as Suppose That You Are Interceding for the President of the United States and there are Those that Oppose Him, but You Are “Heralding Out” Verses Like Isaiah 54:17, and Most All of the Scriptures about “They That Dig a Pit Shall Fall Into It Themselves”.  You Can Bet that the Angels or the Host are Responding to the Word of Yahweh That You Are Voicing~!  In Fact, This Is How We Get Victory, Not By Echoing How Horrible the Situation Is~!

Since the Angels Are Ministering Spirits, (Hebrews 1:14), Acting, or Hearkening Only To The Voice of Yahweh’s Word, (Psalm 103:20), and if We Say Something that Runs Contrary to the Word of Yahweh, they Will Also Stop Responding.

For Example, You Could Need Finances.  Yahweh’s Word Says that ALL Your Needs Are Met According to the Riches of Yahoshua, (the Messiah), (Philippians 4:19 ~ And Yahweh Shall Supply ALL Your Need According to His Riches in Glory by Christ Yahoshua. NKJV).  A Bill Could Be Asking You to Send a Payment, and Your Finances Are Waiting For a Move From Yahweh.

Yahweh’s Word Says that ALL Your Needs Are Met, and if You Are Saying that You Don’t Have the Money, the Angels Stop, and Your Finances Stop, (The Angels Could Have Been Bringing in The Very Finances, and Your Words Halted Them as, “Death and Life are In The Power of The Tongue, and Those Who Love it Will Eat Its Fruit”.  Proverbs 18:21 ~ NKJV, {See Also Matthew 12:35-37}).

You See, We Have a Heavenly Account that Deposits Have Been Made Into, (Philippians 4:17 ~ Not that I Seek the Gift, But I Seek the Fruit that Abounds to Your Account), and Yahweh Can Get Money From this Account, But Any Money WithDrawn From This Heavenly Account Has to Be Taken Out In Faith, and For Faith to Work, Words Have to Come Out of Your Mouth Matching What is in Your Heart, (Mark 11:23) and Matching What is in His Word, {For Angels to Respond, Recalling that His Word” Equals “His Will For the Thing Desired to Occur}, (Psalm 103:20-21).

The Scripture Says, “I Have Been Young, and Now am Old, Yet I Have Not Seen The Righteous Forsaken or His Children Begging for Bread”, (Psalm 37:25).  So, You Will Want to Confess or Repeat What The Scripture Says About You.   Confess, (Means “To Say The Same Thing as What Yahweh Has Said”.  Click or Tap Here to See More on Confessing Here Are Some Words that Work.  Might as Well Talk to the Bills and Tell them, “Bills, Don’t You Get Used to Being on My Counter Long, Because it is Written that All My Needs are Met In Christ Jesus and You’ll Find that it is Also Written that, ‘I Won’t Be Begging for Bread’.”
 

 
 
 

Neither Be Dismayed by Reason of this Great Multitude; For the Battle is Not Yours, But Yahweh’s~!

2 Chronicles 20:13-20

13 All Judah Stood Before Yahweh, with their Little Ones, their Wives, and their Children.
14 Then On Jahaziel the Son of Zechariah, the Son of Benaiah, the Son of Jeiel, the Son of Mattaniah, the Levite, of the Sons of Asaph, Came the Spirit of Yahweh in the Midst of the Assembly;
15 And He Said, Listen You, ALL Judah, and You Inhabitants of Jerusalem, and You King Jehoshaphat: Thus Says Yahweh to You, Don’t Be Afraid You, Neither Be Dismayed by Reason of this Great Multitude; For the Battle is Not Yours, But God’s, (Elohim’s)~!
16 Tomorrow Go You Down Against Them: Behold, they Come Up by the Ascent of Ziz; and You Shall Find Them at the End of the Valley, Before the Wilderness of Jeruel.
17 You Shall Not Need to Fight in this [Battle]: Set Yourselves, Stand You Still, and See the Salvation of Yahweh with You, O Judah and Jerusalem; Don’t Be Afraid, Nor Be Dismayed: Tomorrow Go Out Against Them: For Yahweh Is With You.
18 Jehoshaphat Bowed His Head with His Face to the Ground; and ALL Judah and the Inhabitants of Jerusalem Fell Down Before Yahweh, Worshipping Yahweh.
19 The Levites, of the Children of the Kohathites and of the Children of the Korahites, Stood Up to Praise Yahweh, the God of Israel, with an Exceeding Loud Voice.
20 They Rose Early in the Morning, and Went Forth into the Wilderness of Tekoa: and as they Went Forth, Jehoshaphat Stood and Said, Hear Me, Judah, and You Inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in Yahweh Your God, SO Shall You Be Established; Believe His Prophets, So Shall You Prosper.

Click Here to See Scriptures that Show, I Am With You” or, “Yahweh Is With You,” or, “I Was With Him”.

 
 
 

Now, at this Good News, the Levities Were Jumping Up and Down with Excitement, (After ALL Jahaziel Was One of their Own From their Tribe). But the Other 11 Tribes, We Read, “Not So Much” Excitement. And they Were Wondering About Jahaziel. Who is this Guy that is Saying ALL This, Have You Ever Heard of Him?

Jehoshaphat Introduces Jahaziel by Basically Implying that Yahazeil, (there Was No, “J” in the Hebrew ~ Aramaic Language), Is a Prophet and by Saying, “Hear Me, Judah, and You Inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe In Yahweh Your God, So Shall You Be Established; Believe His Prophets, so Shall You Prosper.”

Now, That’s the Gist of the Story and I’ve Started Here Above by Telling More of the BackGround of this Situation.

But, Now Like Paul Harvey Let’s Read the Rest of the Story.

Yahweh Had Instructed His Folks that if they Ever Got into Not Just Dire Straits, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, But When Evil Comes Upon Them, Here’s What they Were Supposed to Do, {(1 Kings 8:33,37-39; 2 Chronicles 6:28-30; 2 Chronicles 7:14; 2 Chronicles 20:8-9)}.


 
 
 
Make Supplication to You In this House

1 Kings 8:33, 37-39; 2 Chronicles 6:28-30; 2 Chronicles 7:14

1 Kings 8:33 When Your People Israel Are Struck Down Before the Enemy, Because they Have Sinned Against You; if they Turn Again to You, and Confess Your Name, and Pray and Make Supplication to You in this House:
2 Chronicles 6:28 / 1 Kings 8:37 If there Be in the Land Famine, if there Be Pestilence, if there Be Blasting [or] Mildew, Locust [or] Caterpillar; if their Enemy Besiege Them in the Land of their Cities; Whatever Plague, Whatever Sickness there Be;
2 Chronicles 6:29 / 1 Kings 8:38 Whatever Prayer and Supplication Be Made by Any Man, [or] by ALL Your People Israel, Who Shall Know Every Man the Plague of His Own Heart, and Spread Forth His Hands Toward this House:
2 Chronicles 6:30 / 1 Kings 8:39 Then Hear in Heaven, Your Dwelling-Place, and Forgive, and Do, and Render to Every Man According to ALL His Ways, Whose Heart You Know; (for You, Even You Only, Know the Hearts of ALL the Children of Men;)
2 Chronicles 7:14 If My People, Who Are Called by My Name, Shall Humble Themselves, and Pray, and Seek My Face, and Turn From their Wicked Ways; Then Will I Hear From Heaven, and Will Forgive their Sin, and Will Heal their Land.

Now, with that in Mind, Look What Jehoshaphat Did.

 
 
 
Now, with that in Mind, Look What Jehoshaphat Did.

2 Chronicles 20:1-5, (WEB)
1 It Happened After This, that the Children of Moab, and the Children of Ammon, and with Them Some of the Ammonites, Came Against Jehoshaphat to Battle.
2 Then there Came Some Who Told Jehoshaphat, Saying, there Comes a Great Multitude Against You From Beyond the Sea From Syria; And, Behold, they Are in Hazazon-Tamar (the Same is En-Gedi).
3 Jehoshaphat Feared, and Set Himself to Seek to Yahweh; and He Proclaimed a Fast Throughout ALL Judah.
4 Judah Gathered Themselves Together, to Seek [Help] of Yahweh: Even Out of ALL the Cities of Judah they Came to Seek Yahweh.
5 Jehoshaphat Stood in the Assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in The House of Yahweh, Before the New Court;

This Was the First Inaugural Test of Yahweh’s Instructions, {it Said it Was theNew Court’, (2 Chronicles 20:5)}.  The Ball Was Now In Their Court.  Judgments Are Made in the Court Room and You Are the Judge, (Click Her to Read More About that).  First Case Tried and they Were the Testers as an Example For Us, (Romans 15:4).  Will it Work?  Will Yahweh Do What He Said that He Would Do?

 
 
 
Will Yahweh Do What He Said that He Would Do?

For Over 30 Years, Normally March 25 is Usually the First Day that I Raze My Lawn, (Raze Means to Completely Destroy ~ A Building, Town, or Other Site. To Destroy, Demolish, Raze to The Ground, Tear Down, Pull Down, Knock Down, Level, Flatten, Bulldoze, Wipe Out, Lay Waste).  It is Also the 34th Pivotal Anniversary of Michael Jackson’s First MoonWalk that Catapulted and Transcended Michael Jackson from Being Known as the Lead Singer of the Jackson Five to being Known as a Soloist and Dancer Equated with the likes of James Brown.  So, Let’s Also Make Some History Today, and Raze Some StrongHolds, If Your Name Has Been on the Prayer List for a Long While, Today Your Name is Wiped Off, and Removed Forever. Let’s Read On to Find Out if Yahweh Did What He Said that He Would Do?

2 Chronicles 20:6-12, (WEB)

6 And He Said, Yahweh, the God of Our Fathers, Aren’t You God in Heaven?  And Aren’t You Ruler Over ALL the Kingdoms of the Nations?  And in Your Hand is Power and Might, So that None is Able to Withstand You.
7 Did Not You, Our God, Drive Out the Inhabitants of this Land Before Your People Israel, and Give it to the Seed of Abraham Your Friend Forever?
8 They Lived Therein, and Have Built You a Sanctuary Therein For Your Name, Saying,
9 If Evil Come On Us, the Sword, Judgment, or Pestilence, or Famine, We Will Stand Before this House, and Before You, (for Your Name is in this House,) and Cry to You in Our Affliction, and You Will Hear and Save.
10 Now, Behold, the Children of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir, Whom You Would Not Let Israel Invade, When they Came Out of the Land of Egypt, But they Turned Aside From Them, and Didn’t Destroy Them;
11 Behold, How they Reward Us, to Come to Cast Us Out of Your Possession, Which You Have Given Us to Inherit.
12 Our God, Will You Not Judge Them? For We Have No Might Against this Great Company that Comes Against Us; Neither Know We What to Do: But Our Eyes Are On You.

 
 
 
Immediately Yahweh Answers When they Cry Out to Him First and Do What He Told Them to Do When Evil Comes Upon Them, {(1 Kings 8:33,37-39; 2 Chronicles 6:28-30; 2 Chronicles 7:14; 2 Chronicles 20:8-9)}.


2 Chronicles 20:13-19, (WEB)

13 All Judah Stood Before Yahweh, with their Little Ones, their Wives, and their Children.
14 Then On Jahaziel The Son of Zechariah, the Son of Benaiah, the Son of Jeiel, the Son of Mattaniah, the Levite, of the Sons of Asaph, Came the Spirit of Yahweh in the Midst of the Assembly;

Asaph Was the Chief Musician, and Now His Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandson, (1 Chronicles 9:15), Tells Us We Need to Just Praise Our Way Out of this Jam … by Praising and Worshipping Yahweh~!  And Eleven Tribes Raise their Eyebrows~! ~ (2 Chronicles 20:19).

15 And He Said, Listen You, ALL Judah, and You Inhabitants of Jerusalem, and You King Jehoshaphat: Thus Says Yahweh to You, Don’t Be Afraid You, Neither Be Dismayed by Reason of this Great Multitude; For the Battle is Not Yours, But God’s, (Elohim’s).
16 Tomorrow Go You Down Against Them: Behold, they Come Up by the Ascent of Ziz; and You Shall Find Them at the End of the Valley, Before the Wilderness of Jeruel.
17 You Shall Not Need to Fight in this [Battle]: Set Yourselves, Stand You Still, and See the Salvation of Yahweh with You, O Judah and Jerusalem; Don’t Be Afraid, Nor Be Dismayed: Tomorrow Go Out Against Them: ‘For Yahweh Is With You
18 Jehoshaphat Bowed His Head with His Face to the Ground; and ALL Judah and the Inhabitants of Jerusalem Fell Down Before Yahweh, Worshipping Yahweh.
19 The Levites, of the Children of the Kohathites and of the Children of the Korahites, Stood Up to Praise Yahweh, the God of Israel, with An Exceeding Loud Voice~!

 
 
 
 
Jehoshaphat Assures the Folks and Affirms that the Words that Jahaziel Spoke Were From Yahweh and Prophetic.


2 Chronicles 20:20-22, (WEB)

20 They Rose Early in the Morning, and Went Forth into the Wilderness of Tekoa: and as they Went Forth, Jehoshaphat Stood and Said, Hear Me, Judah, and You Inhabitants of Jerusalem: “Believe In Yahweh Your God, So Shall You be Established; Believe His Prophets, So Shall You Prosper.”
21 When HE Had Taken Counsel with the People, He Appointed Those Who Should Sing to Yahweh, and Give Praise in Holy Array, AS THEY WENT OUT BEFORE THE ARMY, and Say, Give Thanks To Yahweh; For His Loving-Kindness Endures Forever.

This Above Was Harder to Do than it is to Read About it.  They Were Surrounded by an Enemy that Had Plans to Wipe Them Out, and the Muscle to Do it with, and the Singers Are Down in the Front Line of Fire, (the Enemy had Arrows Dipped with Fire), and they Are Singing and Praising Yahweh For their Deliverance as if it Has Already Happened~!  And they Don’t Have Any Weapons Except that of Praise, (Psalm 149:1-9); {Can You See Why the Other 11 Tribes Didn’t Readily Accept What Jahaziel Said, (2 Chronicles 20:19)}.  

Notice the When and Why’s of What Israel Did… Things Like, “Tomorrow Go You Down Against Them and Tomorrow Go Out Against Them”: And “Then Rose Early in the Morning”.  I Like that.  Yahweh Told Them to Move Out Tomorrow, So Nobody Left Too Soon, But When it Was Tomorrow, “Early In The Morning”, they Launched.  They Didn’t Wait Around Until After Noon.  At the Least, Maybe it Was Only the Levites that Were the Firestarters To Ignite the Praise, (and Stood Up To Praise Yahweh, the God of Israel, with An Exceeding Loud Voice).  However, All the Congregation Got OnBoard and Believed Yahweh and Proceeded to Advance Forward into the Battle Grounds, “And When He Had Consulted with The People They, Placed The Singers at The Front”.

Yahweh Was Saying, Fear Not, For, “I Am With You,” (Click On this Link to See How Many Times Yahweh Has Said,For I Am With You or Click Here For, “ Yahweh Is With Me.”  Click Here to See Scriptures Showing, “I Am With You” And Also See Psalm 118:6; Romans 8:31).

22 When they Began to Sing and to Praise, Yahweh Set Ambushers Against the Children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, Who Had Come Against Judah; And they Were Struck.
