The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Under His Wings I Shall Abide
Our Bible Study teacher continued
our study of the Ark of the Covenant. I
took notes and present an edited lesson for you.
cherubim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the mercy seat
with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the cherubim shall
be toward the mercy seat.
Exodus 37:1-6 Bezaleel was
commissioned by God as the anointed craftsman to make the ark from shittim wood
and over lay it with pure gold.Then he
created the mercy seat with the two golden cherubim with wings spread.
There is poetry in symbolism
as we began to study what the Bible has to say about wings.
God created every winged creature to fly.This was a reflection of winged heavenly creations.
1:20-23The waters brought forth moving
creatures that have life, both foul and living creatures under the waters.The earth brought forth cattle and creeping
things.God gave man the authority to
have dominion over all.
Mankind has this desire to
fly as expressed in the inventions of the Wright Brothers.
104:3God rides on the wings of the wind.
Deuteronomy 32:10-14 tells of
the Eagle stirring her nest and how she flutters over her young spreading her
wings and takes them soaring as they learn to fly.
(So did the Lord to His
people.)He made him to ride on the high
It is interesting how God has built wisdom into the
birds to be obedient to their creation.
Psalms 91:4 He shall cover you with his feathers, and
under his wings shall you trust: his truth shall be your shield and buckler.
His truth shall be your
shield and buckler.God sends his angels
to protect you.
91:11For he shall give his angels
charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their
hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
The story of Naomi and her
husband and two sons traveling to a far country, where the boys married; and
husband and sons died. Naomi decided to return to her land, but Ruth refused to
leave her mother-in-law.“Your people
shall be my people and your God shall be my God,” was her reply.Naomi tells Ruth to go glean at a certain
field,Ruth is obedient and finds favor,
protection and provision.
Jesus referred to his love
Matthew 23:37 O
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent
unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen
gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!
We discussed the lessons we can
learn by watching chickens and the birds.
The woman in Revelation
12:13-14 Represents themother of the
persecuted church.Yet God protects and
provides provision.(The woman was given
two wings; great as eagle wings for her escape.
This is a representation of
protection when we are under stress and threat of destruction.
Psalms 91: 1-3 He that dwells in the secret place of the
most High shall abide 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. Surely he shall
deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly pestilence.
