Send Us All, Help From Your Sanctuary

Happy Feast of Trumpets, Hebrew year 5780, according to the “civil” calendar.

Leviticus 23 – The Feast of Trumpets
23 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’ ”

This morning when I first awoke, my first conscious thoughts were, “let us cast away all fear and doubt and move with confidence.” That lead me to 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

Later I read the Tecarta verse for today, Philippians 4:6-7 KJV
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

As I began in intercessory prayers a phrase kept coming to mind to speak, “send them help from your sanctuary.” It’s is not a common thing I say in prayer and I had to find it’s Bible verse because I didn’t remember where it was from. After finding it I saw that it’s a Wonderful Psalm to pray though. The NASB version is easily understood,

Psalm 20  Prayer for Victory over Enemies. For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high!

2 May He send you help from the sanctuary
And support you from Zion!

3 May He remember all your meal offerings And find your burnt offering acceptable! Selah.

May He grant you your heart’s desirAnd fulfill all your counsel!

5 We will sing for joy over your victory, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners. May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.

6 Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.

7 Some boast in chariots and some in horses, But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.

8 They have bowed down and fallen, But we have risen and stood upright.

9 Save, O LORD; May the King answer us in the day we call.

Yesterday, Sunday September 29, 2019, Bishop Drew preached a really good and needful message titled, “Protecting Your Blind Side.” It’s focus is that the enemy of our soul is always looking for ways and the “most opportune times” to attack us but Bishop Drew reminds us of “The Lord’s Prayer” and what Jesus taught us to pray. Jesus said to pray, “deliver us from evil.” To that Bishop Drew added this thought into the mix. “Evil is always looking for a way to steal our blessings. The devil is a busy devil and he is looking for a way to steal that blessing. The nature of the devil is to kill, steal and destroy.”

Bishop Drew’s sermon, my post Friday about David reaching a very low point in his life when he reached Ziklag and my prayer this morning reminded me of another part of David’s Ziklag story.

I mentioned Friday how I believe God’s hand was moving in David’s situation to cause the Philistines to reject David, not allowing him to follow through and be in the battle alongside the enemy that brought about the death of King Saul and Jonathan. It may have changed the entire destiny of David being king over Israel. In my mind it proves the Sovereignty of Almighty God in the affairs of men. But that wasn’t the only thing God did at that point in David’s life as an intervention to bring about His plan and purpose for “His Anointed.” The post of Friday was a long one as it was and I didn’t want to go deeply into this aspect of it but will now. God painted a picture of Psalm 20, in living color for our spiritual eyes to see as we read how “He Sent David Help From the Sanctuary” of Israel’s resources.

1 Chronicles 12:1-21 Now these were the men who came to David at Ziklag while he was still a fugitive from Saul the son of Kish; and they were among the mighty men, helpers in the war, 2 armed with bows, using both the right hand and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows with the bow. They were of Benjamin, Saul’s brethren.

3 The chief was Ahiezer, then Joash, the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; Jeziel and Pelet the sons of Azmaveth; Berachah, and Jehu the Anathothite; 4 Ishmaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and over the thirty; Jeremiah, Jahaziel, Johanan, and Jozabad the Gederathite; 5 Eluzai, Jerimoth, Bealiah, Shemariah, and Shephatiah the Haruphite; 6 Elkanah, Jisshiah, Azarel, Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korahites; 7 and Joelah and Zebadiah the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.

8 Some Gadites joined David at the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty men of valor, men trained for battle, who could handle shield and spear, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as gazelles on the mountains: 9 Ezer the first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third, 10 Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth, 11 Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh, 12 Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth, 13 Jeremiah the tenth, and Machbanai the eleventh. 14 These were from the sons of Gad, captains of the army; the least was over a hundred, and the greatest was over a thousand. 15 These are the ones who crossed the Jordan in the first month, when it had overflowed all its banks; and they put to flight all those in the valleys, to the east and to the west.

16 Then some of the sons of Benjamin and Judah came to David at the stronghold. 17 And David went out to meet them, and answered and said to them, “If you have come peaceably to me to help me, my heart will be united with you; but if to betray me to my enemies, since there is no wrong in my hands, may the God of our fathers look and bring judgment.” 18 Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the captains, and he said:

“We are yours, O David;
We are on your side, O son of Jesse!
Peace, peace to you,
And peace to your helpers!
For your God helps you.”

So David received them, and made them captains of the troop.

19 And some from Manasseh defected to David when he was going with the Philistines to battle against Saul; but they did not help them, for the lords of the Philistines sent him away by agreement, saying, “He may defect to his master Saul and endanger our heads.” 20 When he went to Ziklag, those of Manasseh who defected to him were Adnah, Jozabad, Jediael, Michael, Jozabad, Elihu, and Zillethai, captains of the thousands who were from Manasseh. 21 And they helped David against the bands of raiders, for they were all mighty men of valor, and they were captains in the army. 22 For at that time they came to David day by day to help him, until it was a great army, like the army of God.

If you want to read more about the 37 “Mighty Men” of Valor and of God who supported David read 2 Samuel 23:8-38. The accounts of their heroic deeds make some of them appear superhuman. But isn’t that what happens to every believer that has a great measure of God’s anointing resting on them for a time or season in their life.

Mark 9:23-24 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

My first conscious thoughts this morning were, “let us cast away all fear and doubt and move with confidence.” We too should pray, asking Father God to “cast away unbelief and doubt.”Those thoughts and prayer lead me to a Wonder Promise in the Word of God found in Psalm 20. We as children of Almighty God have every right and obligation to “Loose in Heaven” help from Our Father’s Heavenly Sanctuary. We have angels Far Mightier and More Powerful than the adversary and his minions. We have the Name of Yeshua Jesus, The Name Above Every Name and can call upon and apply the Precious Blood He Himself placed on Heavens Mercy Seat.

The words of Charles Spurgeon needs to become second nature to us,  Always be afraid of being afraid. Failing faith means failing strength. Do not regard despondency as merely a loss of joy, view it as draining away your spiritual life. Struggle against it,”

After writing all this I got around to reading the My Daily Bible app devotionals for today. It was a bit of a surprise, a “Thank You Lord” kind, to see that Psalm 20 was in today’s readings. Aren’t the angels of Father God ministering spirits to help direct our thoughts and steps in a way that our life can be pleasing to Him, First? Thank You My Dear Heavenly Father for Your Help, Sent From Your Gloroius Sanctuary. The more you seek Father God, the more He WILL Let you find Him. The MORE You Find Him, the MORE you’ll Love Him Too. Here’s a song that says that, exactly!!!

We Are Born With A Guardian Angel Assigned To Us for Life, But CAN Call Upon Many

Jesus said, “My Sheep Hear My Voice.” The Problem is, OFTEN He Isn’t the First to Speak

As humans, too often we outright sin, make innocent mistakes and just listen to the wrong voice too soon without seeking God’s Voice and Will in matters. Thankfully, God is able to truly know our hearts. He knows if there is rooted deep in our heart is a desire to love, honor and serve Him. He understands our weaknesses and even the inceptions of our failures that take us downward like a snowball headed for hell. Like the moment David wrongfully accepted Jonathan’s word, “the LORD has sent you away.” Thankfully, God is able to keep, save, deliver and redeem His children’s wrong turns of life.

Oh My God do I know that side of Him Too well. Recently, and only once in church our choir sang a song I’d never heard before titled, “I Know Something About God’s Grace.” As each member of the choir took turns singing only these words, “I know something about God’s Grace, Yes I Do” a flood of emotions and reverence for God’s Sovereignty over my life overwhelmed me. As they sang it, I relived it. I KNOW Something About God’s Grace, YES I DO!!!

There’s a day coming when everyone will see the difference in how God deals with those who really have Him in their hearts and minds above everything else,

Malachi 3:16-18

16 Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who meditate on His name.

17 “They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
18 Then you shall again discern
Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves God
And one who does not serve Him.

What a sad and terrible day it will be for those who played games with God’s Grace, Mercy, Offer of Salvation that Yeshua Jesus brought to anyone willing to receive it but refused it. That day hasn’t come yet. It isn’t too late yet. Today is still the day of salvation if you don’t tune out the pleading and calling of God to you.

Hebrews 3:14-15 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

Hebrews 4:6-9 Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, 7 again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”

8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
