Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 12 - Evening

"He (Isaac) had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him. So all the wells that his father’s servants had dug in the time
of his father Abraham, the Philistines stopped up, 
filling them with earth.

Then Abimelek said to Isaac, 'Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us.'

So Isaac moved away from there and encamped in the Valley of Gerar, where he settled. Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up
after Abraham died, and he gave them the
same names his father had given them.

Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there. But the herders of Gerar quarreledwith those of Isaac and said, 'The water is ours!' So he named the well Esek,  because they disputed with him. Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah. He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, “Now the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”

- Genesis 26:12-34

Knowledge, Faith and Persistence    

One thing to note right away is this principle concerning wealth: The more you have, then the more you have to care for. And, the more God gives you, the more you have to manage responsibly. 

Proverbs 10:22 says,

“The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.”

In Isaac’s case it was the Philistines who caused the trouble. They “envied him” and drove him further from their land by cutting off his needed water supply.

But, Isaac’s persistence and the Philistine opposition ultimately led Isaac to a location in the Promised Land where Isaac could say:

“Now the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”

Like his father before him and the heroes of faith that would follow, Isaac could hold firm and stay on course because he understood the promise, the purpose and the ultimate plan of God! It was now Isaac’s turn to face the opposition, manage the Promise of God responsibly and hold his assigned position for his generation.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"If the gaze of man awakens fear in us, how much more so the gaze of God.  If we feel exposed by people, we will feel devastated before God.  To even think of such things is too overwhelming."
- Edward T. Welch
Something to Ponder??

Christianity is accused of being intolerant because they say that Jesus is the only way of salvation. But, all religions come to a place in this discussion where they also draw a line in the sand and refuse to compromise:
1. Hindus believe in many Gods, and cannot tolerate the one true God.
2. Buddhists cannot accept the scriptures of Hindus and Christians.
3. Muslims will not tolerate disagreement with the Koran.
4. Atheists cannot accept any religion that believes in a God or any Gods.

With all this conflicting "truth" we hope that the religion that is correct will stay commited , or intolerant, until all of us can see the evidence that proves their "truth" is the Truth!...and, we hope they feel the same way about us!!

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Kosmokrator  (Gr) - Rulers (Eng) - kosmokrator is a Greek word found only once in the Greek New Testament. In Ephesians 6:12 kosmokrator is translated “rulers,” or “world forces.” It was originally a word referring to the powers of the skies in astrology and eventually came to be used of the pagan rulers and emperors of Greece and Rome. In Ephesians 6:12 kosmokarator are listed along with three other ranks of demonic forces of Satan that are not of the fleshly world.


In 925 BC Egyptian Pharoah Shishak (Sheshonq)
invaded Judah:

"In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem. He carried off the treasures of the Temple of the Lord and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including all the gold shields Solomon had made." - Kings 14:25-26

Shishak's son, Osorkon gave 383 tons of gold and silver to the Egyptian temples after his father had died. And, Osorkon buried his son Sheshonq in a pure silver coffin that was discovered in 1939. It is very likely that this enormous amount of gold and silver available in Egypt at this time came from Solomon's Temple in 925 BC.
