15 as for me let me see your face in righteousness; I am satisfied to see your appearance when I awake BYNV
The literal translation of the second part of the verse: I will be satisfied in awakening in your likeness
In this verse there is no separation between thoughts. There is a lot of debate over exactly what David was saying. If we keep it focus that David writing in a poetic style that has often to do with death we can look at the verse and see that David was speaking first in his alive state and then in his death state.
The word awakening is QUTS in Hebrew it refers to awakening from sleep or death. David’s thought about the afterlife is in keeping with his poetic style.
Speaking in his alive state he says let me see your face in righteousness. Then in his afterlife state he is saying, I am satisfied to see your appearance when I awaken from death, so that would be in reference to when we all resurrect after we have died.
16 For Alahim so loved (Aramaic: chav or Hebrew “’ahav) the world that He gave His only brought forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life.
Yahukanon (John) 21:20a
And Kefa (Peter), turning around, saw the pupil whom Yahusha loved (Racham) following,
Let’s look at the different meaning for these two words whose base understanding is Love.
There are several words in Hebrew that have the base meaning of love with different expressions of love. There are two words in Arabic that express love
1 ‘ahav - love
2 racham - tender mercies
3 dodi - beloved (spousal love)
4 ra’ah - Brotherly love or friendship also as Shepard and consuming passion
1 agape - unconditional love
2 phileo - Brotherly love our friendship

I have a wonderful friend with whom I recently took a road trip. She is a very trusting person. I on the other hand like to have a more hands in the middle of things approach. While she determined to totally trust the GPA system I like to have a general idea of where I am going and then let the GPA get me there. On a segment of the trip I had not consulted the map and was quite uncomfortable with the direction we were going.
That trip circled back in my thoughts today and I considered how true that is of people in general. Most of us are trusting folks and choose to trust the ways we have been brought up. Not so much with me. I was never fully on board unless I could understand why, what, when etc. As a child I know I drove the Nuns a bit nuts in my catholic school. Eventually the Roman Catholic Church and I parted ways and I went on to Unity, Methodist, Baptist, Assemble of God and non-denominational. But I had a problem, just like the map in my mind did not match up...
Pride keep us from using the Name of the Creator given to us for our use by the Creator.
Instead of changing our habits, our ways to his desire we hide our pride behind statements like: "He knows my heart."
So my thought about that consideration of the Father's will is PRIDE. You think more of yourself then you put Yahuah first in your life. I get it that you do not see that in yourself but it is true and if your first reaction is: that simply is not true, then you really do have a pride situation to deal with
At the core you do not want to make the effort to change your tongue and your mindset to use The Name by which He introduced Himself to Moses as The Name to given to the Egyptians as Moses went forward to bring out the people Yahuah had chosen for himself. To bring them out of captivity. In addition to giving which Name to be used, Yahuah instructed Moses to use The Name! as a remembrance because it was indeed His desire. Shemoth (Exodus) 3:14 - 15
Do you ever wonder why sometimes prayer gets answered and sometimes you don’t see the answer? Just how determine do you need to be to get your answer? We have heard it taught over and over you have to trust Yahuah. So, what does that really mean?
This past week I have had an opportunity to get some of those answers first hand.
I have a history of answered prayer, as does my friend K. who is an intercessor. While I do some intercessory prayer, I am not an intercessor like my friend. She actually co-leads a team of intercessors in her church. We have learned to be straight forward with Yahuah in our expectations of the end results of prayer and we have learned to request Yahuah command our Host Angels to battle for us and help us. Yahuah put them to flight for our cause
Host Angels are the armies of God. They are different then our guardian angels.
So here is the path Yahuah and I went through. I will give glory to Yahuah with the details following the...
