    2. A second crucial rule of biblical hermeneutics is that passages must be interpreted historically, grammatically, and contextually. Interpreting a passage historically means we must first seek to understand the culture, background, and situation that prompted the writing. For example, in order to understand Jonah's flight, in Jonah 1:1-3, we should learn of the history of the Assyrians as it related to Israel.

    Interpreting a passage grammatically requires one to follow the rules of grammar and recognize the nuances of Hebrew and Greek. For example, when Paul writes of "the great God and Saviour Jesus Christ" in Titus 2:13, the rules of grammar state that God and Savior are parallel terms and they are both in apposition to Jesus Christ; in other words, Paul clearly calls Jesus "our great God" & not identifying the two Persons separately in the Deity. Interpreting a passage contextually involves considering the context of a verse or passage when trying to determine the meaning. The context includes the verses immediately preceding and following it, the chapter, the book, and indeed the entire Bible. For example, many puzzling statements in Ecclesiastes become clearer when kept in context; the book of Ecclesiastes is written from the earthly perspective 'under the sun' ( Ecclesiastes 1:3). In fact, the phrase 'under the sun' is repeated many times in this book, establishing the context for all that is "vanity" in this world.

    3. A third rule of biblical hermeneutics is that Scripture is always the best interpreter of Scripture (& this you believe & stated clearly). For this reason, we always compare Scripture with Scripture when trying to determine the meaning of a passage. For example, Isaiah's condemnation of Judah's desire to seek Egypt's help and their reliance on a strong cavalry ( Isaiah 31:1) was motivated, in part, by God's explicit command that His people not go to Egypt to seek horses ( Deuteronomy 17:16).

    I feel there is a significant detail that is possibly a detail that the LORD wants to show you. You may want to independent research about lions. I would be interested in what you find relating to what the LORD shows you!

    Psalms 91, lions Psalms 91:13,

    1st I must thank you, Thanks for bringing me back to this Psalms it's Powerful & encouraging!

    Hear are more scriptures on lions within the scripture. Several of GOD's people were delivered from lions.

    I understand it to mean, any lion just incase we question "what about a young one". Here's a scripture about "._._.an old lion,who shall rouse him up?' Genesis 49:9,

    Young lion : Numbers 23:24,

    these also mention a difference between: Job 4:8-21, Job 28:8, Job 38:39, Psalms 17:12, Isaiah 30:6, Isaiah 31:4,

    Ezekiel 19:3, Amos 3:4, Micah 5:8,

    Victory from lions : Judges 14, 1Samuel 17:34,36, 2Timothy 4:17, Daniel 6,

    But also used against a Prophet that disobeyed GOD's specific orders : 1Kings 13,

    Hopefully these are helpful

    Richard, these may be the verses you ask about:

    Isaiah 2:20

    Isaiah 31:7

    Darren, may the spirit grace you with his wisdom and his knowledge.

    no part of revelation is going to occur in the physical sense.

    revelation is spiritual warfare for the kingdom of heaven.

    revelation is completely symbolic.

    isaiah 9:5 now every (natural) battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this (spiritual battle) shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

    isaiah 9:19 ....and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire....

    isaiah 4:4 when the lord (a consuming fire hebrews 12:29) shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of (new) zion, and shall have purged the blood of (new) jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgement and the spirit of burning.

    luke 12:49 i am come to send fire on the earth; and what be i (the fire), if it (the fire) be kindled already?

    matthew 4:11 ....he shall baptize you with the holy spirit and with fire;

    isaiah 9:18 for wickedness burneth as the fire (our god is a consuming fire).....

    isaiah 10:16 .... and under his glory (us) he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.

    isaiah 24:15 wherefore glorify ye the lord in the fires ....

    isaiah 31:9 ....whose fire is in (new) zion, and his furnace in (new) jerusalem.

    isaiah 33:14 .....who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burning?

    where the fire is never quenched (our god is a consuming fire)

    isaiah 42:25 therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle; and it (the battle) hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it (the battle) burned him, and he laid it not to heart.

    ezekiel 5:2 thou shall burn with fire a third part in the midst of the (new jerusalem, christ in you).....

    zachariah 13:9 and i will bring the third part through the fire ....

    revelation 8:1-13

    revelation 9:18 by these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire...brimstone...smoke....

    hebrews 9:27

    1 peter 4:17
  • Penny Soulik on Amos 8:7
    The very fact that these days we live in Corruption has gone sky high not only in The Government, but also in church. And the LORD said that those who knew the TRUTH when they pulled out, becomes prey For the corruption of the church. But when the LORD returns, is there really anyone to save? Something to think about. Amos 8:7 Everyone is striving instead of Praying and asking for His extended mercies. And the ones trying to help out His people Jerusalem and Judea are not bringing them back but dividing them! Acts 2:34-39. Exodus 4:8 Rev 2:14 Isaiah 29:13,15,16,18, 22-24 Isaiah 31:1-3,4-7.
  • Karen Chavous on Isaiah 40
    There is a song with a few of the verses in Isaiah 31, called (YOU AIN'T SEEn YOUR BEST DAYS YET) truley if you wait on the Lord you will see your best days. Praise his holy name.
  • Karen Chavous on Isaiah 40
