Everything that can be shaken / 2018-Dec

Train Ride

As I came home this evening,  got on the wrong train. I intentionally did so as I did not want to wait around 10 minutes for my train.

Missed my jump off.  And, got off on the next one.

Switched directions and was good.

A young man was talking to himself and in between played his music a bit loud.

Made sure not to look in his direction.

And, doubly made sure “No eye contact”.

Finally, eye contact was forced as he intentionally bumped into me on his way to the “Standing Room” on the Train Bus.

The eye contact was affectionate and affirming. The way things are supposed to be.

He made ruckus with a few people.  Stared into an older man and threatened to beat him, if he hears anything.

As he got off the train, he spoke of looking forward to the day we get to see him on TV.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Takes me back to Thanksgiving dinner at my big brother’s home. Made friends with a man visiting from a foreign country.

He told me how bad things are in his country of origin.  A made man, yet he was scared about forthcoming elections. He deployed all the corruption and said that there will be wide unrest if things don’t get better.

I asked him if faith, specifically the religion we share can help.

He replied NO, and continued that he does not think so; the problems are simply too big.

Bruce Springsteen

“A lot of what’s going on has been a large group of people frightened by the changing face of the nation,” Springsteen told Esquire magazine in a separate interview. “There seems to be an awful lot of fear.”

The founding fathers were pretty good at confronting their fears and the fears of the country. And it’s the old cliché where geniuses built the system so an idiot could run it. We are completely testing that theory at this very moment. I do believe we’ll survive. But I don’t know if I see a unifying figure on the horizon. That worries me.”

I don’t know if there is a way to really bring those jobs back and I think that’s what’s causing so much anxiety to so many Americans,” he said.

Springsteen talked his father’s experience to illustrate what he understood as reason for the  frustrations of voters.

“My father worked as a 16-year-old floor boy in the rug mill, then went off to war,” Springsteen told the Times. “When he came home, they shut the rug mill down, and he went to work on the Ford Motor plant line in New Brunswick. He worked in the Nescafé plant in Freehold. Worked in the plastics factory in town, he was a truck driver, a bus driver, drove a taxi.”

“I don’t know precisely what I’m going to do this time, but I tend to think the more you make yourself available, perhaps the less weight your word carries,” he said.

Bible Verses

Hebrews 12:26-29 ( Link )

At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”

The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

Let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe

2nd Peter 2:10-11 ( Link )

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble

God’s Call of Women ( New Testament)

Foundational

Abigail Adams wrote to her husband, John Adams, while he was off with the men writing the Constitution, “Remember the Ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors.” What if he’d listened to her, and women had been made citizens at that time?

Background

The Church is referred to as the bride of Christ.

Within that proclamation it follows that God created an outsize role for women in his embryonic church.

Ministry Work

God

As God prepared Adam for ministerial duties :-

Genesis 2:24-25
Link

18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

It is upon being sent out that we find our need for mates and partnerships.

We see our limitation and insufficiency, our nakedness so to speak, yet we are not ashamed.

Jesus

Matthew 19:4-8
Link

“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’

and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’?

So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning”

It appears that Jesus is arguing that God’s original intent is for unity, but that the hardness in our heart gets in the way.

 

Women In the New Testament ( NT )

Anna

  1. Luke
    • Luke 2:36 – 38
      • 36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Dorcas/Tabitha

  1. Acts
    • Good Works & Alms ( Acts 9:36 – 39)
      • Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and alms  deeds which she did.
      • Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.

Phebe/Phoebe

  1. Romans
    • Introduction of Phoebe ( Romans 16:1-2 )
      • I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church at Cenchreae, so that you may welcome her in the Lord as is fitting for the saints, and help her in whatever she may require from you, for she has been a benefactor of many and of myself as well.

Tryphena and Tryphosa

  • Romans
    • Salutation ( Romans 16:12 )
      • Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, who labour in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, which laboured much in the Lord.

Julia

    • Final Instructions ( Romans 16:15-17 )
      • Greet Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them.
      • Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.
      • I urge you, brothers and sisters, to keep an eye on those who cause dissensions and offenses, in opposition to the teaching that you have learned; avoid them.

Junia

  1. Romans
    •  Andronicus and Junia, Apostles ( Romans )
      • Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.

 

Chloe

  1. 1 Corinthians
    • Division within the Church ( 1 Corinthians 1:11 )
      • For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there are quarrels among you, my brothers and sisters.

Euodia & Syntyche

  1. Philippians
    • Exaltation ( Philippians 4:1-2 )
      • Therefore, my brothers and sisters, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, my beloved.
      • I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord.  Yes, and I ask you also, my loyal companion, help these women, for they have struggled beside me in the work of the gospel, together with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life.

God’s Call of Women ( Old Testament)

 

Sarai/Sarah

  1. Genesis
    • Sarah Turns Against Hagar ( Genesis 21:11-13 )
      • And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

Rebekah

  1. Genesis
    • Jacob and Esau ( Genesis 25:20-24 )
      • And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.
      • And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
      • And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the Lord.
      • And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
        And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

Miriam

  1. Exodus
    • Moses Offering ( Exodus 2:1-4 )
      • And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.
      • And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
      • And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.
      • And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.
    • Prophetess ( Exodus 15:20 )
      • And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
  2. Numbers
    • Moses marries a Cushite woman
      • Versus
        • And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. And they said, Hath the Lord indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the Lord heard it. ( Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.) …
        • 13 And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.
          14 And the Lord said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.
          15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.
      • Commentary
        • Rabbi Louis Ginzberg wrote the anger of God to them ( Link )
          •  “…I Myself ordered him to abstain from conjugal life, and the word he received was revealed to him clearly and not in dark speeches, he saw the Divine presence from behind when It passed by him. Wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against a man like Moses, who is, moreover, My servant?
            Your censure is directed to Me, rather than to him, for ‘the receiver is no better than the thief,’ and if Moses is not worthy of his calling, I, his Master, deserve censure
            .” — Legends of the Jews vol. III

 

Esther

  1. Esther
    • Ahasuerus ( Esther 1 )
      • Now it came to pass in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces:)
      • That in those days, when the king Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace,
      • In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him
      • To bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: for she was fair to look on.
      • But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s commandment by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him.
      • Then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king’s manner toward all that knew law and judgment
      • 15 What shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king Ahasuerus by the chamberlains?
      • 16 And Memucan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen hath not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the people that are in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus.
      • 17 For this deed of the queen shall come abroad unto all women, so that they shall despise their husbands in their eyes, when it shall be reported, The king Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not.
      • 22 For he sent letters into all the king’s provinces, into every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and that it should be published according to the language of every people.
    • Mordecai ( Esther 2:5-15 )
      • Now in Shushan the palace there was a certain Jew, whose name was Mordecai, the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjamite;
      •  Who had been carried away from Jerusalem with the captivity which had been carried away with Jeconiah king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away.
      •  And he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle’s daughter: for she had neither father nor mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for his own daughter.
      • 15 Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her.
    • Sleepless Nights ( Esther 6:1-3 )
      • On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus.

        And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king’s servants that ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.

    • Mordecai ( Esther 10:3 )
      • Mordecai the Jew was second in rank to King Xerxes, preeminent among the Jews, and held in high esteem by his many fellow Jews, because he worked for the good of his people and spoke up for the welfare of all the Jews.

God’s Calling ( Old and New Testament )

Background

I wanted to journal a bit on people of God’s calling.

Bible

  1. Moses
    • Exodus
      • Signs for Moses
        • Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” ( Exodus 4:10 )
        • The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord?
          Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”
          ( Exodus 4:11-12 )
        • But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”
          ( Exodus 4:11-13 )
        • Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you.
          ( Exodus 4:11-14 )
        • You are to speak to him and put the words in his mouth. I will help both of you to speak, and I will teach you what to do. ( Exodus 4:15 )
        • Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites,  and Aaron told them everything the Lord had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people, and they believed.
          And when they heard that the Lord was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.
        • The LORD answered Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.
          You are to speak all that I command you, and your brother Aaron must declare it to Pharaoh so that he will let the Israelites go out of his land.…
          ( Exodus 7:1-2 )
      • The Ten Commandments
        • 18 When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance 19 and said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.”

          20 Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”

          21 The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was.

  2. Isaiah
    • Isaiah
      • Isaiah 6
        • Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts
        • And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
  3. Ezekiel
    • Ezekiel
      • Ezekiel’s Call to Be a Prophet
        • He said to me, “Son of man, stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.” As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.
        • He said: “Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have been in revolt against me to this very day.  The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says.’
        • And whether they listen or fail to listen—for they are a rebellious people—they will know that a prophet has been among them.
        • And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, though briers and thorns are all around you and you live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or be terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people.
        • You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.
        • But you, son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not rebel like that rebellious people; open your mouth and eat what I give you.”
  4. Daniel
    • Daniel
      • Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream
        • 20 “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;wisdom and power are his.
          21 He changes times and seasons;
          he deposes kings and raises up others.
          He gives wisdom to the wise
          and knowledge to the discerning.
          22 He reveals deep and hidden things;
          he knows what lies in darkness,
          and light dwells with him.
          23 I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors:
          You have given me wisdom and power,
          you have made known to me what we asked of you
          ( Daniel 2:21-23 )
  5. Amos
    • Amos
      • Then Amaziah said to Amos,“Get out, you seer! Go back to the land of Judah. Earn your bread there and do your prophesying there.Don’t prophesy anymore at Bethel, because this is the king’s sanctuary and the temple of the kingdom.”Amos answered Amaziah, “I was neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees.

        But the Lord took me from tending the flock and said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’

        Now then, hear the word of the Lord.

  6. Gideon

        And the LORD said, “I will stay until you return.”
        ( Judges 6:17-18 )
      • When Gideon realized that it was the Angel of the LORD, he said, “Oh no, Lord GOD! I have seen the Angel of the LORD face to face!”But the LORD said to him, “Peace be with you. Do not be afraid, for you will not die.”
        ( Judges 6:22-23 )

      • The Road to Damascus
        • He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?
