RHEMA 6/11/06 ANOINTED IPOD!
I got an IPOD with my Christmas and BD money and have
really been enjoying it. I put my worship CDs on it. A
couple days ago I found a few places that gives free MP3
downloads of the Bible, so I took some time and
Tonight I was driving home from church at dusk and the
following scripture came through my IPOD.
Ps 141:1-3 NKJV
LORD, I cry out to You; Make haste to me! Give ear to
my voice when I cry out to You. Let my prayer be set
before You as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the
evening sacrifice. Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth;
Keep watch over the door of my lips.
We had a glorious sunset that filled the sky. It was so
beautiful I stopped in a pullout and took a picture of
it. I was marveling that the Lord creates such beauty
for us to enjoy. Then when I got on the freeway I saw
the moon and it had really pretty wispy clouds streaked
in front of it. It looked like an artist had painted it
by sweeping the brush straight across the clouds to
sweep them in a line in front of it. These 2 scenes
happened within about 5 minutes of each other.
As soon as I saw the moon, I turned the IPOD wheel at
random. I did not have my reading glasses, and I just
circled my finger around and stopped. GOD IS AWESOME.
Here is where I turned to!!!
Ps 148:14 NKJV
Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights! Praise Him, all His angels;
Praise Him, all His hosts! PRAISE HIM, SUN AND MOON;
Praise Him, all you stars of light! Praise Him, you
heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens!
Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded
and they were created. He also established them forever
and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away.
Praise the LORD from the earth, You great sea creatures
and all the depths; Fire and hail, snow and clouds;
Stormy wind, fulfilling His word; Mountains and all
hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars; Beasts and all
cattle; Creeping things and flying fowl; Kings of the
earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the
earth; Both young men and maidens; Old men and children.
Let them praise the name of the LORD, For His name alone
is exalted; His glory is above the earth and heaven. And
He has exalted the horn of His people, the praise of all
His saints - Of the children of Israel, a people near to
Him. Praise the LORD!
UPDATE RHEMA 6/22/06 THE URM AND THUMMIM
HEARD: Do you know what this is? The Urim and
I saw my new IPOD hanging from my neck.
[The Urim and the Thummim was worn around the neck of
the priests and they used it to determine God's will. I
have always experienced hearing God through "anointed
hands" as like the Urim and the Thummim, where we open
the scriptures at random and it hits us as very relevant
to our need at the moment.]
In the Hebrew the terms Urim and Thummin literally meant
making decisions or verdicts by the flame (or light) of
complete (or perfect) truth.
Ex 28:30 AMP
In the breastplate of judgment you shall put the Urim
and the Thummim [unspecified articles used when the high
priest asked God's counsel for all Israel]; they shall
be upon Aaron's heart when he goes in before the Lord,
and Aaron shall bear the judgment (rights, judicial
decisions) of the Israelites upon his heart before the
The IPod is not a literal Urim and Thummin. Rather the
Lord was speaking about the experience I had. The IPod
experience was an example of hearing from God through
divine events that line up adjoining sequences: where
His will, His Word exactly lines up with natural
circumstances with what we are doing, seeing, saying,
hearing. This is pretty regular for me to walk in this
way and hear Him in this way, but it has taken years of
tuning into Him to find that place.
