Be Still and know that I am God...

Brothers and Sisters,

I love this scripture Psalms 46:10...
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
I've wondered what God meant by Be Still.   We've talked many times about choice and how we all have freedom of choice.  Sometimes I believe there is a third choice in a matter.  I know that there are many choices in most all situations but I'm thinking about a very big picture.  I'm thinking how the world gets us wrapped up in all these distractions where there is always a good guy and a bad guy and we feel like we have to choose which side to stand on.  One side appears to be good and there is always someone or something that appears to be bad.
Maybe these are some of the times that GOD is referring to.  Maybe we should pick that third choice in some of these instances and just BE STILL and know that HE is GOD.  I know the adversary (the devil) will often times provide both sides to a situation.  He will supply both sides to feed the conflict.
We look at the event or situation and pick a side that we feel appears to be in the right, when in fact neither is good.  If we would just look at what is really happening from GOD's perspective and pray it becomes clear we should BE STILL and know that HE is GOD.
1Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
The Hebrew word for Be Still in this scripture is H7503 raphah is to refrain, let go, to be quiet.  To leave off your own attempts and let GOD.
Sometimes to discern a situation is not to pick a side of man's views at all but to Be Still and let GOD.  Trust HIM to lead you in that still quiet voice within.  If you are unsure, Be Still.
Satan is the author of chaos and confusion.  Anytime you find yourself in this state, know that it is not from our LORD.  Then is the time for prayer and quiet,  wait upon the LORD.
Psa 37:9 
For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
Isa 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Zep 3:8
Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
A thief comes to steal, kill and destroy your belongings.  Satan is a thief that comes to do these things and more importantly to steal, kill and destroy your very soul.
Jhn 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
1Peter 4:5
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief,  as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
The churches today are mostly failing the body of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.  JESUS taught that HE came not to destroy the law (covenant of the 10 commandments) but to fulfill it by living it and showing us it can be done.  That we can live in this beautiful covenant of Goodness also.
Exo 34:28
And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
Mat 5:17 
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
The 10 Commandments are the covenant written by the finger of our LORD.  They were written for  to show us how to live a GODly life.  So if followed all mankind would be blessed and fruitful forever.  The sacrificial laws (603 of them)  were written by the hand of Moses for the people that would not obey GOD's commandments (covenant).  The LORD did not want sacrifice of living life.   HE did not want innocent life to perish.
Mat 12:7
But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
The sacrifice the LORD wants from HIS children is to live a HOLY life!
Lev 20:7
Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.
1Peter 1:15-16  But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation.
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Evil is something our GOD takes accountability for creating but HE does not partake of it!!!
Isa 45:7 
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
When man partakes of evil it is sin,  GOD is perfect and sin cannot be in/of  HIM or in/of  HIS presence.  Sin has to have sacrifice of living life for atonement.
Lev 17:11 
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Eze 39:17
And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
This is how Great our GOD is!!!  This my brothers is the willing sacrifice of our LORD and Saviour JESUS CHRIST upon the cross for you and me.  All this so that we might become Sons of God and live in HIS Glory forever.  This great sacrifice is the life blood shed willingly to atone for our sin so that with true repentance (to turn and sin no more) we might live.
JESUS LORD God shared two commandments with us when HE physically walked with us on this earth.
Luke 10:27 
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
Never forget and never quit hungering for the WORD of GOD.  Paul tells us in
 Philippians 4:12
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
BE STILL and know that I AM GOD..............
Isn't that beautiful?
Love to you all and Be Blessed with Wisdom and Understanding

Lord GOD and LORD God...

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

 The LORD God ( the power of GOD has JESUS CHRIST, has the right arm/hand/strength of GOD, the creator of heaven and earth, corner/foundation stone),  the Lord GOD ( the Father, JEHOVAH)

Ex 6:3 
And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
Psa 83:18 
That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
Isa 12:2
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
Isa 26:1-5 
In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks. 
Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in. 
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.

The Bible is written very specific and GOD is teaching us thru HIS WORD who HE is.  The wording is very specific in noting the different capitalizations thru out scripture of the LORD God and the Lord GOD.  Teaching us specifically in whom is the reference.

Deu 3:24 
O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?
Deu 9:26 
I prayed therefore unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, destroy not thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed through thy greatness, which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
Psa 44:3
For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
Psa 71:5
For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
Psa 71:16
I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
Isa 25:8
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.
Psa 98:1
 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
Isa 28:16
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
Isa 28:22
Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
Isa 30:15
For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
JEHOVAH is three in one!!!
1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Just as GOD is here and has always been here in spirit, HE loves us so very much to create himself a physical vehicle has a begotten son (JESUS CHRIST) to physically dwell among HIS children to fulfill HIS set standard of Goodness and Truth put forth thru Moses with the very finger of the LORD God on the tables of stone (Ten Commandments).   JESUS overcame sin to show us that we too can overcome sin and fulfill HIS covenant of Goodness and Truth in our desire of that which is Good and Righteous.
Job 33:14
For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
Job 40:5
Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.
GOD has spoken thru the prophets thru the ages and man perceiveth it not,  the second time physically with a face to face.

Eze 39:29
Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
Isa 54:8
In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.
The LORD God (JESUS CHRIST) in everlasting kindness has mercy on us, our Redeemer.
Mat 7:8
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Be Blessed my Brothers and Sisters.  May our GOD bless you with HIS understanding.
