Upon reading Amanda's post yesterday, I was reminded of a prophecy in which the Lord is directing His people to STORE UP THE WORD OF GOD IN THEIR HEARTS
Naturally speaking, it is always good to have an emergency kit in your vehicles and home in the event of a breakdown, power outage, etc. However, there seems to be a consistent, prophetic thread in which the Lord would tell us to know His word. To have it dwelling richly in our hearts. To store it up and value it more than food or drink. When Jesus returns physically to the earth He uses the word and the word alone to defeat the Antichrist and its armies. We would do well to follow his example and know the Word so well that no event, no disaster would catch us off guard. The Lord says that when he returns to the earth will He find faith? Be busy about the Lord's business and store up the Word of God in your hearts.
"1 ...If you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
3 indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
8 for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones."
Deutoronomy 11:18: "Fix these words of Mine in your hearts and minds..."
Deutoronomy 32:47 "They are not just idle words for you...THEY ARE YOUR LIFE."
For the Glory of El ELYON,
