Evening Psalm.

Psalm 149. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

Praise ye the Lord! Sing unto the Lord a new song, and His praise in the congregation of saints!

Let Israel rejoice in Him that made him; let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

Let them praise His name in the dance; let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel and harp.

For the Lord taketh pleasure in His people; He will beautify the meek with salvation.

Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud upon their beds.

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand

to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

to execute upon them the judgement written: this honour have all His saints. Praise ye the Lord!

Evening Prayer.

GOD, merciful Father, that despisest not the sighing of a contrite heart, nor the desire of such as be sorrowful; Mercifully assist our prayers that we make before thee in all our troubles and adversities, whensoever they oppress us; and graciously hear us, that those evils, which the craft and subtilty of the devil or man worketh against us, be brought to nought; and by the providence of thy goodness they may be dispersed; that we thy servants, being hurt by no persecutions, may evermore give thanks unto thee in thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Blessing.

Have a great day Brothers and Sisters of the CJCN, The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace, now and evermore, Amen.

Bible Reading.

1 Chronicles 13. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

And David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds, and with every leader.

And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, “If it seem good unto you, and if it be of the Lord our God, let us send abroad unto our brethren everywhere who are left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the priests and Levites who are in their cities and suburbs, that they may gather themselves unto us.

And let us bring back the ark of our God to us, for we inquired not at it in the days of Saul.”

And all the congregation said that they would do so, for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.image.jpg

So David gathered all Israel together from Shihor of Egypt, even unto the entrance of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjathjearim.

And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjathjearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God the Lord, who dwelleth between the cherubims, whose name is called on it.

And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab; and Uzza and Ahio drove the cart.

And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing and with harps, and with psalteries and with timbrels, and with cymbals and with trumpets.

And when they came unto the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark, for the oxen stumbled.

10 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzza, and He smote him because he put his hand to the ark; and there he died before God.

11 And David was displeased, because the Lord had broken forth upon Uzza. Therefore that place is called Perezuzza to this day.image.jpg

12 And David was afraid of God that day, saying, “How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?”

13 So David brought not the ark home with him to the City of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite.

14 And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months. And the Lord blessed the house of Obededom and all that he had.

Verse of the Day.

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. Isaiah 62:1, NIV.

Lord our God, we worship you, for you come to meet us everywhere and you reveal your glory on our earth. May we become worthy of you, people who can represent you with our whole being. Give us the strength to endure, even through struggles and temptations. Be merciful to us at all times through Jesus Christ our Savior. May we remain body and soul in his hands, that at last we may come to you, our Father in heaven, as your true children, reborn through the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Daily Lesson.

1 Chronicles 13:9-11.

(9) And when they came to Chidon’s threshing floor, Uzza put out his hand to hold the ark, for the oxen stumbled. (10) Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Uzza, and He struck him because he put his hand to the ark; and he died there before God. (11) And David became angry because of the LORD’s outbreak against Uzza; therefore that place is called Perez Uzza to this day.

I Chronicles 13:1-3 introduces an episode containing a presumptuous act, immediately followed by a sobering display of divine justice. However, this time, one of the most respected names in Israelite history is directly involved. It is the story of Uzza’s sudden death while moving the Ark of the Covenant, the most sacred and revered of Israelite objects. The Ark, representing the throne of God and containing the tablets of stone Moses received from God on Mount Sinai, normally resided in the Holy of Holies.

David desired to move the Ark to Jerusalem to continue to consolidate the kingdom under himself. As they were moving it on an oxcart, the oxen stumbled, and the Ark appeared to be toppling to the ground. Uzza, in what may have been pure reflex, put out his hand to steady the Ark, but upon touching it, he was immediately struck dead (verses 9-10)! At first, David was angry that God ruined his party (verses 8, 11) – as the whole atmosphere of the Ark’s transfer was celebratory – but shortly after, he became extremely fearful (verse 12).

The Bible shows God to be longsuffering and slow to anger. Why did they not hear His voice from heaven saying, “Thank you, Uzza, for keeping the Ark from getting damaged and dirty”? Instead, He exploded in anger and slew Uzza on the spot! However, God had given strict instructions for transporting the Ark, found in Numbers 4:4, 15, 17-20:

This is the service of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of meeting, relating to the most holy things: . . . And when Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary and all the furnishings of the sanctuary, when the camp is set to go, then the sons of Kohath shall come to carry them; but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These are the things in the tabernacle of meeting which the sons of Kohath are to carry. . . . Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: “Do not cut off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites; but do this in regard to them, that they may live and not die when they approach the most holy things; Aaron and his sons shall go in and appoint each of them to his service and his task. But they shall not go in to watch while the holy things are being covered, lest they die.”

The Bible nowhere indicates that Uzza was a Kohathite. If he was, what God did is even more understandable. Everyone in the whole procedure from David on down was guilty of disobeying God’s instructions regarding the most holy things. David failed to consult with the High Priest – or any priest, for that matter – regarding how the Ark should be moved. Evidently, no priest protested that proper procedures were not being followed.

The Kohathites were not even supposed to look on the uncovered Ark. To God, when Uzza reached out and touched the Ark as it seemed about to topple off the cart, it was no act of heroism but the final act of desecration, arrogance, and presumption. The last thing presumed was that Uzza’s hand was less defiling than the earth that he feared would contaminate the Ark.

God’s instruction in Exodus 20:24-25 regards building Him an altar. An altar made for His worship had to be constructed of earth or unhewn stones. No altar defiled by man’s sinful hand was suitable. Dirt cannot sin; it always follows the nature God established. God did not want the symbol of His throne contaminated by the evil that manifested itself in a whole string of rebellions against His specific instructions. There was nothing arbitrary, capricious, or whimsical in God’s action.

Jesus teaches us to address God as “Father,” a title suggesting familiarity, yet we are also to pray, “Hallowed be Your name.” God shows in these two incidents that, if reverence is due to the symbols used in His worship, how much greater reverence must be given to the realities of the New Covenant?

Those involved in this incident were well-intentioned, but it illustrates for all generations that God still requires conformity with His directives concerning holy objects. Deviation from orthodoxy can be deadly.

Blessing.

Have a great day Brothers and Sisters of the CJCN, The Lord bless you and keep you;

The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

NYC Freedom Outpost POLITICS NYC Congresswoman Yvette Clark Compares Trump’s Policies To Nazis.

The left is desperate to link Trump with Hitler and demonize all opposition.

Does Yvette Clarke even know what Hitler was really like and what he did?

ClarkeY-NY9D.jpg

Either she doesn’t know what a Nazi really is, or she is so bent on destroying Trump and discrediting his policies that she doesn’t care how outlandish the comparison really is.

In fact, it’s both. Yvette Clarke and others who make this comparison are ahistorical ideologues whose only education has been in the leftist-controlled academic system that has taught them to hate America and stigmatized everyone who wants to defend this nation.

Meanwhile, with their hatred of Israel and blind eye to Islamic Jew-hatred, they’re much closer to the Nazis than Trump will ever be.

“NYC congresswoman compares Trump’s policies to Nazis,’” by Ruth Weissmann and Mary Kay Linge, New York Post, January 27, 2018:

A city congressional representative deployed Nazi imagery to denounce President Trump’s deportation policies Saturday.

“We’re standing in front of a building that has become the headquarters for the Gestapo of the United States of America,” Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-Brooklyn) told a crowd of about 50 at a rally in Manhattan’s Federal Plaza.

“We will not sit quietly as [Trump’s] administration attacks hardworking people who contribute positively to this country,” Clarke said.

Clarke appeared at a rally against the deportation of Ravi Ragbir, whose Jan. 10 detention led to the arrests of city council members Jumaane Williams and Ydanis Rodriguez.

Ragbir, 53, a native of Trinidad, was ordered to be deported in 2006 after serving a prison sentence for wire fraud and conspiracy.

Federal authorities permitted him to stay in the U.S. up to now, but the Trump administration wants to enforce the decade-old deportation order.

“He was taken away under brutal, horrible circumstances,” Ragbir’s wife, Amy Gottlieb, told the crowd….

Trump is right – UNRWA needs to be totally defunded. $400 million US taxpayers’ money should be cut off.

What exactly is UNRWA teaching in Palestinian schools? David Bedein’s stunning expose: share to spread the truth. This type of incitement poisons future generations which could and should be making peace. Extremism is never the answer.
Trump threatens to cut all US aid to the Palestinian Muslims, including aid to all UN agencies operating in Gaza and Ramallah.
Every year hundreds of millions of dollars of US taxpayers’ money go to the Palestinian Authority.
This madness must be stopped

Every Western country must stand with Israel against radical Islamic terrorism.
The Israeli people face the frighteningening escalation of Islamic terror acts through Israel.
The Palestinian Authority refuses to take the most basic steps towards ensuring peace with Israel, and instead incites terrorism.
Textbooks in Gaza and the West Bank teach children that Israel has no right to exist.
They teach their children to hate Jews.
The Hamas charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

No one should have to live in fear as they drive home from work or walk home from school. This radical Islamic terrorism must stop. Israeli mothers shouldn’t have to fear sending their kids off to school. Israeli workers shouldn’t have to fear standing at a bus stop. Israeli children and visitors should be free to feel safe while walking through Jerusalem’s Old City. The people of Israel have a right to live in peace and security.

Israel built security fences and walls on all its borders after a wave of suicide bombings during the second intifada.
The entire world was quick to condemn Israel for defending itself
The world is silent when Palestinians influct pain and death upon Israel but screams when Israel protects itself.

Part-REF-TS-Par7934173-1-1-0.jpg

When Israel left the Gaza Strip, Gaza was free and all Jews were expelled.
Hamas took control on the Gaza Strip, imposed sharia law and declared war on Israel with the declared goal of destroying the Jewish state.
They fired tens of thousands of rockets at Israel, but the world turned a blind eye.
Hamas, ISIS, and Al Qaeda share the same ideology of radical Islam.
The Western world must stand with Israel in the war against radical Islamic terrorism.
