Andrew Wommack: A Person Can Be Born Again Without Abiding…

A person can be born again without abiding…
Andrew Wommack:

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

This is a promise of favor and protection to those who dwell in the secret place of the most High (see my note at Psalms 91:14). This is for those who DWELL there, not visit there. This is talking about ABIDING in Christ (John 15:4). This is speaking of those who make the Lord their habitation (Psalms 91:9). *A person can be born again without abiding in Christ.*
Abiding in Christ gives us entrance into the protection of the Almighty. The Hebrew word that was translated “shadow” here is “TSEL,” and it was translated “defense” once in Numbers 14:9 and twice in Ecclesiastes 7:12. Those continuously trusting in the Lord will have Him come to their defense.

God is love (1 John 4:8), so to abide in God means we have to abide in love (1 John 4:16). Those who haven’t heard the good news of God’s unconditional love and grace through Jesus can’t abide in love, and the wrath of the Old Testament Law will keep them from receiving God’s love and blessings.

The Hebrew word “CETHER,” which was translated “secret place” in this verse, was also translated “secret place” in Psalms 18:11. Psalms 27:5 speaks of being hidden in the “secret” (CETHER) of His tabernacle. And Psalms 31:20 says the Lord will hide us in the “secret” (CETHER) of His presence.

I Had a Headache…

I got a headache last night. I don’t get headaches, so I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I know I couldn’t think straight.  The only thing I knew to do was to cast any evil off and command my body to get in line with God’s will for me to NOT have that headache. 

I hate pain. That makes it easy for me to identify and quickly get on top of it. But we can get accustomed to things that oppose the Lord by slowly absorbing the things around us from the world.  Things can get left unattended and they begin to become a part of our makeup. That is why it is very important to keep our minds renewed with the Word of God. 

Covenant: Strength

Covenant

Circumcision was the sign of the covenant. By calling Goliath uncircumcised, David was making this very pointed statement: “He may be a giant; he may be strong; but he has no covenant with God, and that’s why I can kill him.” Kcm
