Psalm 29,

Q33: Welcome to prayer training by Jesus..

Understand the childlike foundations first:-

  • (1) How to support Jesus
  • (2) Former rains in Jesus
  • (3) Latter rains in Jesus

    (4) Deeper prayer training.

  • Consider prayer 29:-

    Ps 29:1 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength. (KJV)

    Here is yet another example of translators, making fuzzy what to do with three Hebrew nouns side by side.

    "yahab" "YHWH" "ben" "el" ...

    Ps 29:1 (KJV) Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, ...

    Ps 29:1 (ASV) Ascribe unto Jehovah, O ye sons of the mighty, ...

    Ps 29:1 (BBE) Give to the Lord, you sons of the gods, ...

    Ps 29:1 (DBY) Give unto Jehovah, ye sons of the mighty ones, ...

    Ps 29:1 (MKJV) A Psalm of David. Give to the LORD, O you mighty, ...

    Ps 29:1 (NKJV) Give unto the LORD, O you mighty ones, ...

    Ps 29:1 (RSV) Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings, ...

    Ps 29:1 (WEB) Ascribe to Yahweh, you sons of the mighty, ...

    Ps 29:1 (YLT) Ascribe to Jehovah, ye sons of the mighty, ...

    The Hebrew word "ben" means "son".

    The Hebrew word "YHWH" means "He who exists".

    The Hebrew word "el" means "Strong Authority". See more on this word.

    The Hebrew word "yahab" means according to Jeff Benner, "give". The pictograph reads "The active hands of the Person at home" and is a picture of a Person giving with the hand.

    Notice not one human sees a different way to translate these three Hebrew words as a Divine Person's title.

    Give to YHWH the Son of Strong Authority, give to YHWH glory and strength (Ancient Hebrew)

    There are several reasons for this translation...

    Ps 29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name;...

    The next verse says to give glory to his name (shem). But YHWH is not a name, its a functional descriptor of "He who exists", the Father and or the Son. There are two "He who exists". The pictographs of the sacred name tell you this.

    The Sacred NAME

    Hebrew people would not write or pronounce the sacred NAME for GOD. It is often spelt as Yahwah. The word means in the Ancient Hebrew script ... "Behold ! I AM secure. Behold ! I AM active." What is interesting in the Sacred NAME is the presence of two persons who exist .

    Is there a verse where both "He who exists" are referenced at the same time? Yes

    Ge 19:24 Then the LORD "YHWH-Jesus" rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD "YWHW-Father" out of heaven;

    These reference two YWHW at the same time in two different locations, one on earth, the other in heaven.

    So getting back to our Prayer 29, we should reference the name or title from the very first verse.

    Ps 29:1 Give unto the LORD the Son of Strong Authority, give unto the LORD glory and strength.(Ancient Hebrew)

    Notice another functional descriptor of YHWH-Jesus:-

    Ps 29:10 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.

    This verse also indentifies YHWH as Jesus, who is king forever. This implies He would be called Son of Man, with humanity added to His divinity, in order to rule over his kind, as the king of his kind. When is this declaration made?

    Prayer 2 is making a figure of Jesus coming to rule as King over His Kingdom, just as earthly kings rule over their kingdoms:

    Ps 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD "Father-YHWH", and against his anointed, saying,

    We have two Divine Beings mentioned here:

    Ps 2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

    Notice the community reference "their" in the KJV.

    4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

    The Hebrew word "laugh" has pictographs which read "Over the horizon, outside, turns". The last letter is the thorn letter, so this playful laughing is about mankind resolving their sin using earthly kings. But our Father has a better solution, He sends Jesus as a human king with a declaration:

    5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

    So Our Father is sore over mankind's poor attempts of making rulers a king..

    6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

    The Father is heaven will set His Son as King over the earth.

    7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

    This verse has the Hebrew word "yom" meaning present day time. The verse really reads" The Father says to His Son, today I will born thee". Notice this declaration is made before Jesus actually adds humanity to His Divinity and becomes a king walking on the earth. Instead the Father makes His Son King of earth first in heaven. How does the Father do this?

    Da 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit,...

    Our Father is the Ancient of Days.

    Da 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

    Notice the angels bring Jesus to the Father, somewhere in heaven up there this happened...

    14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom,...

    And there was given Jesus, the Son of Father, dominion, glory and a kingdom, this makes Jesus a king.

    Now did not Jesus say the Scriptures are written concerning me?

    Lu 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

    So how do we find Jesus Christ in the Old Testament, unless we go looking into the Hebrew... not the fuzzy translations of humans, who somehow did not believe Jesus was in the OT, in their bias have covered up this altogether. It is near impossible to find Jesus in the OT Scriptures if you rely upon human translations.

    But this Prayer 29 declares Jesus the Son of Strong Authority in the first verse. Wow. In English translations this reads:

    Prayer 29:1 Give to Jesus the Son of GOD, give Him glory and strength.

    The Author has yet to find a reference to Elohiym the Son of GOD, but here is a reference to Jesus, the Son of GOD. Assuming we play along with English biased translations. The Hebrew word "el" means "Strong Authority" not God. There is no Hebrew word meaning God anyway. But the English bias is popular, so we stick to it.

    Now if the reader wants to mock or doubt, your welcome to listen to human bias who with translations remove Jesus from the OT Scriptures. The Author who also has bias, is simply doing what Jesus said concerning himself in the Scriptures, the Author goes looking for Jesus' name written in the Scriptures. The only Scriptures in Jesus time was the Old Testament.

    Our Holy Father in heaven, thank you for Jesus the Son of God, thank you for making Your Son a King over us, may we bring forth your fruits of character in their season, we support Jesus words. Amen

    Now let's investigate Jesus as the Son of God, in our prayers, looking at what our Hebrew English translator says:

    Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend. .—(Gospel Workers, 34, 35.) Pr 15.2

    Prayer is you and your Friend Jesus, talking to each other, and listening to each other. As Prayer 28:1 says, the Father in heaven is NOT silent. How exciting it is to talk to Divine Beings in heaven... every day...in prayer!

    As you ask the Lord to help you, honor your Saviour by believing that you do receive His blessing. All power, all wisdom, are at our command. We have only to ask. Pr 16.1

    The SOP has to deal with fuzzy Scripture translations, so not discourage child like readers of Scripture. Here is a clearer message from the SOP.

    As you ask the Lord to help you, honor your Saviour by supporting that you do receive His blessing. All power, all wisdom, are at our command. We have only to ask. Pr 16.1

    Jesus will do as you ask, and support your support of Jesus. We pray His words, talk His words, and do His words. This is how Jesus as a character flows in us. This is what "support" means.

    Consecrate yourself to God in the morning; make this your very first work. Let your prayer be, “Take me, O Lord, as wholly Thine. I lay all my plans at Thy feet. Use me today in Thy service. Abide with me, and let all my work be wrought in Thee.” This is a daily matter. Each morning consecrate yourself to God for that day. Surrender all your plans to Him, to be carried out or given up as His providence shall indicate. Thus day by day you may be giving your life into the hands of God, and thus your life will be molded more and more after the life of Christ.—(Steps to Christ, 70.) Pr 23.1

    Beautiful words written by the SOP. Notice "surrender" is written in the same step when we take our prayers to Jesus in the morning, and lay our plans with Him.

    Hosea (Scroll of Jesus) 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him,...

    Notice the simple way Hebrew sets the steps of Jesus, "take with you words" is a simple description of faith, defining faith or support, as taking the words of Jesus. And turn to Jesus. The first turn to Jesus is because of our sins. Now we turn again with our sins behind and beside us but we have hope to support Jesus using His words. In other words, once Jesus deals with our sins, we are ready to support Jesus, even though we miss daily on his power. We say to Him... here we pray to Him. Notice the simple way Hebrew makes it simple for child like followers of Jesus.

    Why does the SOP add confusion and complexity to the steps of Jesus? Because the stiff neck ones want complexity added and confusion added, so GOD gives it to them. Where did this happen in Scripture?

    Ex 19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. (KJV)

    As soon as Jesus saves Israel, they say all the Lord says they will do...They are not supporting Jesus, but claiming to do for Jesus, using their own Baal master power of self. They have got salvation as a process wrong.

    Some of us who rise in self exaltation want complexity, so our Baal master powers of self feel more accomplished than others, "I am better than you". Pride rises against power, and so the power of Jesus diminishes and the power of self increases.

    The Author makes this passage clear, using "support" for "faith":

    I saw that every prayer which is sent up in "support" from an honest heart will be heard of God and answered, and the one that sent up the petition will have the blessing when he needs it most, and it will often exceed his expectations. Not a prayer of a true saint is lost if sent up in "support" from an honest heart.—(Testimonies for the Church 1:121.) Pr 34.4

    "Take with you words" (Scroll of Jesus 14:2) is how we "support" Jesus. Pray with an honest heart.

    Ask, then; ask, and ye shall receive. Ask for humility, wisdom, courage, increase of faith. To every sincere prayer an answer will come. It may not come just as you desire, or at the time you look for it; but it will come in the way and at the time that will best meet your need. The prayers you offer in loneliness, in weariness, in trial, God answers, not always according to your expectations, but always for your good.—(Messages to Young People, 250.) Pr 37.2

    How we can give to Jesus, the Son of God, give Him glory and strength. Support Jesus by speaking His words, as Prayer 29:1 does.

    Prayer and faith will do wonderful things. The Word must be our weapon of warfare. Miracles can be wrought through the Word; for it is profitable for all things.—(Evangelism, 489.) Pr 53.4

    Where does power and miracle wonders of Jesus come from? By supporting His words.

    Confound not faith and feeling together. They are distinct. Faith is ours to exercise. This faith we must keep in exercise. Believe, believe. Let your faith take hold of the blessing, and it is yours. Your feelings have nothing to do with this faith. When faith brings the blessing to your heart, and you rejoice in the blessing, it is no more faith, but feeling.—(Testimonies for the Church 1:167.) Pr 54.2

    Confound not support and feeling together. They are distinct. Support is ours to exercise. This support we must keep in exercise. Support, support. Let your support take hold of the blessing, and it is yours. Your feelings have nothing to do with this support. When support brings the blessing to your heart, and you rejoice in the blessing, it is no more support, but feeling.—(Testimonies for the Church 1:167.) Pr 54.2

    SOP is saying when wonders of Jesus flow through you, do NOT fall on your feelings, because of Jesus flowing through you. Support has nothing to do with feelings, even though feelings of joy flow from support that successfully flows.

    True faith and true prayer—how strong they are! They are as two arms by which the human suppliant lays hold upon the power of Infinite Love. Faith is trusting in God,—believing that He loves us, and knows what is for our best good. .—(Gospel Workers, 259.) Pr 54.3

    True support and true prayer are two strong arms by which we trust GOD and His power flowing through us.

    Power will come from God in answer to the prayer of support.—(Gospel Workers, 255.) Pr 56.4

    The Author swaps "faith" for "support". Where does power of GOD come from? By listening to God speak to us, when we talk to Him, knowing when we can support His words, we speak His words and the power flows. To have this kind of relationship, you have to be humble and meek. Looking out for others, and looking to Jesus. These are Scripture definitions of humble and meek.

    Prayer and support are closely allied, and they need to be studied together. In the prayer of support there is a divine science; it is a science that everyone who would make his lifework a success must understand. Pr 57.1

    The science of prayer and support, true followers of Jesus must understand. Even a child with child like support understands this. The first public miracle wonder of Jesus in modern times came flowing through a little five year old girl, seeking the manna of Jesus, in Namba during a severe famine.

    See the little girls modern day faith.

    Your support must not let go of the promises of God, if you do not see or feel the immediate answer to your prayers. Be not afraid to trust God. Rely upon His sure promise: “Ask, and ye shall receive.” God is too wise to err, and too good to withhold any good thing from His saints that walk uprightly.—(Testimonies for the Church 1:120.) Pr 59.2

    When a science experiment with God's power fails, do another science experiment. A true scientist does not give up, but is methodical in all he does until success if found.

    "Prayer is not an expiation for sin; it has no virtue or merit of itself. All the flowery words at our command are not equivalent to one holy desire. The most eloquent prayers are but idle words if they do not express the true sentiments of the heart. But the prayer that comes from an earnest heart, when the simple wants of the soul are expressed, as we would ask an earthly friend for a favor, expecting it to be granted—this is the prayer of faith. God does not desire our ceremonial compliments, but the unspoken cry of the heart broken and subdued with a sense of its sin and utter weakness finds its way to the Father of all mercy.—(Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, 86, 87.) Pr 60.4

    Do not pray with scholarship words, or fancy long sentiments. Keep the support simple and child like. Make it honest and meek. Remove all known sinning from your life. Ask God to speak of your missing, what your missing out of. Listen to His still small voice via the conscience, via the Holy Spirit.

    Pray and work, and work and pray. But let none act rashly. Learn as never before that you must be meek and lowly in heart.—(Selected Messages 2:370, 371.) Pr 64.1

    Humble means looking out for others. Meek means looking intently to Jesus for power.

    Beware of human dictionaries and human traditions. Let Scripture only define Scripture.

    See studies of meek and humble.

    We must pray and work and believe. The Lord is our efficiency.—(Evangelism, 438.) Pr 64.2

    The Hebrew word "amar" meaning "believe" also means "support" in English.

    We must pray and work and support. The Lord is our efficiency.—(Evangelism, 438.) Pr 64.2

    Notice the work we do, read the Scriptures to "take learnings" , pray those "seeds of power" by talking to Jesus, you support Him. Go out into the fields of the world, doing. Doing not your power, but His power flows through you. His doings in you.

    Next we consider prayer 30.
