Whatever is True


The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning (the chief and choice part) of Wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight and understanding. ~ Proverbs 9:10 AMPC

Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation], And by knowledge shall its chambers [of every area] be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Proverbs 24:3-4 AMPC

For [of course] every house is built and furnished by someone, but the Builder of all things and the Furnisher [of the entire equipment of all things] is God…  Christ (the Messiah) was faithful over His [own Father’s] house as a Son [and Master of it]. And it is we who are [now members] of this house, if we hold fast and firm to the end our joyful and exultant confidence and sense of triumph in our hope [in Christ]. For we have become fellows with Christ (the Messiah) and share in all He has for us, if only we hold our first newborn confidence and original assured expectation [in virtue of which we are believers] firm and unshaken to the end.

Hebrews 3:4, 6, 14 AMPC

Imagine that, members of His house!

Yes, the sparrow(s) ha(ve) found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young–even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who dwell in Your house and Your presence; they will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. Passing through the Valley of Weeping (Baca), they make it a place of springs; the early rain also fills [the pools] with blessings. They go from strength to strength [increasing in victorious power]; each of them appears before God in Zion. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!

Psalm 84:3-7, 10-12 AMPC

So, now listen,

Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it. [Deut. 30:19; Jer. 21:8.] Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.

Matthew 7:13-14, 21 AMPC

And as you enter in and walk, let Him be your front guard, your rear guard, and your side guards, for we will all need the shelter of the Most High who provides a firm foundation.

For we, undoubtedly, all cry,

Have mercy on me and be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am weak (faint and withered away); O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled. My [inner] self [as well as my body] is also exceedingly disturbed and troubled. But You, O Lord, how long [until You return and speak peace to me]? Return [to my relief], O Lord, deliver my life; save me for the sake of Your steadfast love and mercy.


The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord receives my prayer.

Psalm 6:2-4, 9 AMPC

For everyone who comes to (Him) and listens to (His) words [in order to heed their teaching] and does them, I will show you what he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood arose, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake or move it, because it had been securely built or founded on a rock. But he who merely hears and does not practice doing My words is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation, against which the torrent burst, and immediately it collapsed and fell, and the breaking and ruin of that house was great.

Luke 6:47-49 AMPC

Indeed,  the law hinges on this one commandment:

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might. And these words which I am commanding you this day shall be [first] in your [own] minds and hearts; [then] And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house and on your gates. And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to [reverently] fear the Lord our God for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this day. And it will be accounted as righteousness (conformity to God’s will in word, thought, and action) for us if we are watchful to do all this commandment before the Lord our God, as He has commanded us.

Deuteronomy 6:5-6, 9, 24-25 AMPC

Yes! We give thanks to You God,

He (made) us lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He (lead us)  beside the still and restful waters. [Rev. 7:17.] He refreshes and restores (our) life (my self); He (lead us) in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him–not for (our) earning it, but] for His name’s sake. Yes, though (we have walked) through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, (we) will fear or dread no evil, for You are with (us); Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort (us)…Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow (us) all the days of (our) life, and through the length of (our) days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be (our) dwelling place.

Psalm 23: 2-4, 6 AMPC

All glory to the Most High and Holy One, Jesus Christ!
