THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Tweet: The Christian race is a marathon, not a sprint, and can only be run with patience by those unburdened by worldly things, unencumbered by besetting sins, and undistracted from their concentration on Christ.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: but the prophet is a snare of a fowler in all his ways, and hatred in the house of his God. (Hosea 9:8)

Tweet: Satan, the fowler, strews our paths with snares in hopes of a careless step on our part, which will result in him pulling the trip cord on some ensnaring temptation and us being snatched off our feet and left hanging by our heels.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. (Psalm 91:3)

Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. (1 Timothy 3:7)

And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. (2 Timothy 2:26)

Tweet: The fowler the Psalmist warns us about in the Old Testament is identified by the Apostle Paul in the New Testament. It is the devil who seeks to craftily ensnare us in order to cunningly employ us in the execution of his will.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. (Psalm 91:2)

Tweet: The most important word in Psalm 91 is the little word my. It’s one thing to say, “The Lord is a refuge.” It’s another thing altogether to say, “The Lord is my refuge.” The former is an acknowledgment, the latter an appropriation.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1)

Tweet: It is only those who continuously seek God’s glory, not their own, and God’s face, not His favors, who dwell and abide in safety and security under the shadow of the Almighty.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1)

Tweet: The promise of God’s perpetual protection is to those who abide under the shadow of the Almighty; that is, to God’s intimates who are always close beside Him because they continuously side with Him.
