The Secret Place #3

The Secret Place #3
“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide in under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God: in Him will I trust.
“Thou shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor the pestilence that walketh in the darkness; nor the destruction that wasteth at noonday” [ps.91:5-6]. There is a security living in “The Secret Place. We see 4 results of abiding in “The Secret Place.”

There shall not be afraid for the terror by night: We know there are many terrors 24 hours of the day, of which most of them happen in the dark. People hide to do wrong, because they know it is wrong. So, if we have to hide to do a thing, think about it, “It’s Wrong.”

Nor the arrow that flieth by day: Implying that there are dangers that comes in the day. There are spiritual arrows that goes out and words are likened to arrows. They are powerful. “who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words” God is said to shoot with an arrow, when He heaps swift and speedy vengeance upon the wicked [Psal.64:3 and 7]. We know that all God has to do is speak a thing and it is done.

“Nor the pestilence that walks in darkness: By being in the “Secret Place” you shall not be afraid! “God has not given us a spirit of fear” He told us “No pestilence or plague shall come neigh your dwelling” Now what are we going to believe, the word of man that brings fear --- or the word of God who cannot tell a lie? No, No, No! This is talking about the benefits of those who are in the Secret Place. If you are fearful and afraid to die, you better get ready. The germ warfare will likely get much worse. If you will get in the “Secret Place” under the wing of the “One True God” having faith in what He is able to do, you do not have to be afraid.

Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday: There may be some destruction coming your way. There has already been much to this nation and damage to many individuals around the world in this past year. All of it is a waste! “If a thief be found he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house. But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. A wound and dishonor shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away” [Prov.6:31-33]. There are different repercussions for a thief of material things and theft of a person’s emotional values. Material things can be paid back. However, when a man and woman have intimate relationships outside of marriage, they become one with each other. Adultery is being with a married person, fornication is with a single person, both sin! That destruction can never be replaced or taken back. The wages of sin is death! With true repentance, it can be forgiven, but a lifestyle of it is not repentance, nor is it forgiven except in repentance, that is turning from the sin. That is why it is one of the Ten Commandments. God loves us so much He wants to protect us.

Your payback from a thief may not come to you as you expect, but if you trust what God can do, it will come back to you!

Giving our life to Jesus, who was willing to come to earth as a regular man and suffer, bleed, die, be buried and overcome sin and death for us, is the best way to live. He redeemed “Bought us back from the devil” If you don’t know Him or don’t live for Him, why not? Hell is the only other choice! Some people will go to hell by default, simply by not choosing Jesus. Jesus Loves you. He is waiting on you to come to Him and be able to dwell in “The secret Place.”
