the sea and the waves roaring...

By VictoryinJesus · Oct 17, 2020 · ·
  1. Luke 21:25-27 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

    With perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring...Men’s hearts will fail them for fear of keeping their eyes beneath instead of above. he says to fear not what men can do to the body. Consider this sea with perplexity and roaring is not a literal sea but a people. He shows this double minded is like a wave of the sea tossed about and driven by the wind.

    Job 26:9-12 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it. [10] He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end. [11] The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof. [12] He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

    -he smites through the proud- and who sets the bounds thereof? Job 38:11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and HERE shall thy proud waves be stayed?

    ...and Here shall thy proud waves be stayed? But they don’t stay despising dominion speaking evil of dignities. Consider Jude 1:6-8 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but LEFT THEIR OWN HABITATION, he hath reserved in everlasting CHAINS under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. [7] Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. [8] Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

    These are set forth as an example: Which kept not their first estate but left their own habitation despising dominion, and speaking evil of dignities. Kept bound and chained in darkness. 2 Peter 2:9-15) 2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

    Psalm 107:10-27 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, BEING BOUND in affliction and iron; [11] BECAUSE THEY REBELLED AGAINST THE WORDS OF GOD, and contemned the COUNSEL of the most High: [12] Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help. [13] Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. [14] He BROUGHT THEM OUT OF DARKNESS and the shadow of death, and BRAKE THEIR BANDS in sunder. [15] Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! [16] For he has BROKEN the gates of brass, and CUT THE BARS of iron in sunder. [17] Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. [18] Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. [19] Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he SAVES THEM out of their distresses. [20] He sent his word, and healed them, and DELIVERED THEM FROM THEIR DESTRUCTIONS. [21] Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! [22] And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. [23] THEY THAT GO DOWN TO THE SEA IN SHIPS, THAT DO BUSINESS IN GREAT WATERS;(Psalm 104:26-27 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. [27] These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.) (Isaiah 27:1-3 In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. [2] In that day sing ye unto her, A vineyard of red wine. [3] I the Lord do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.) (Ezekiel 32:6 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou SWIM, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of thee.)

    [23] THEY THAT GO DOWN TO THE SEA IN SHIPS, THAT DO BUSINESS IN GREAT WATERS;

    [24] These see the works of the Lord, and HIS WONDERS IN THE DEEP. [25] For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which LIFTS up the waves thereof. [26] They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is MELTED because of trouble. [27] They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end. (Recommend the rest of the chapter, HE lifts them up, those proud waves, and they go down again to the depths ...crashing, Tossed, their souls melting within them, stumbling and reeling like a drunken man staggers) but near the end of Psalm 107:10-27 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. [29] HE MAKES THE STORM CALM, so that the waves thereof ARE STILL.

    Jeremiah 5:22-31 Fear ye not me? saith the Lord : will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and THOUGH the (PROUD) waves thereof TOSS themselves, YET can they NOT PREVAIL (at their wits end); though THEY ROAR; yet can they not pass over it? [23] BUT this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. (Hating His counsel and dominion)[24] Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. [25] Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. [26] For among my people are found wicked men : they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; (THEY COME IN AND) they set a trap, they catch men. [27] As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. [28] They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. [29] Shall I not visit for these things ? saith the Lord : shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? [30] A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; [31] The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

    @VictoryinJesus PS: Psalm 46 is similar also, with the roaring seas, and then the stillness of the God (v. 10).

    @VictoryinJesus I like how verse 30 of Psalm 107 ends: "...so he bringeth them unto their desired haven". :)

      Love Psalm 107. So much hope there. Can’t stop returning to it and reading it again. Yes, what you posted also love Psalm 107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

      Psalm 107:36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;

      With: Psalm 107:41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, (Ephesians 2:6)
      and maketh him families like a flock.

      Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
