Word Time


People, it is not about what we think. Pay close attention to the bolded (Hebrew thought) below.

Isaiah 13:11

New King James Version (NKJV)

11 “I will punish the world for its evil’ (zamam: (– in a bad sense) plan(ing), purpose, etc..), And the ‘wicked’ (ra’a’: (doer) of harm, hurt, etc..) for their ‘iniquity’ (havah: naughtiness, perverse thing, etc..); I will halt the arrogance’ (zadown: presumptuous(ly)(ness), pride, proud (man), etc..) of the proud, And will lay low the ‘haughtness’ (gaboahh: height, etc..) of the ‘terrible’ (yare: (frightening) act, thing, etc…” 

The message? Stay HUMBLE to the Creator’s thoughts (Word and Works), not man’s. “Seek that you may find”, in YH’shua.
