For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. Psalm 27:5.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Love gives you perfect protection. Love makes you untouchable by evil.
We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God, God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. 1 John 5:18.
I told Noah a flood was coming that would destroy all life on the earth that he was to build an ark so that he and his family would go through it in perfect protection. I did not take them out of it. I took them through it, but above it.
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4.
You who are in Christ are in the world, but you are not of the world. He told you that tribulation is upon the earth, but cheer up, He has overcome the world.
It is time for you to build your ark. What am I talking about? Finding your perfect place of protection and I equip you with all the materials and tools to build the walls of protection. I have given you everything for life and godliness. So just as by following My Word Noah built the place of perfect protection for him and his family and all the animals so designated. Now every board and every part of your structure is a Scripture that will lift you up and over the flood of evil coming upon the earth which has already begun for the devil knows his time remaining on earth is short.
So to build your ark, let us start with the material I give you and you will find them in Psalm 91. And for two more witnesses I will have you consider Psalm 27 and Isaiah 54.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!” Psalm 91:1-2.
You see that you must be in My secret place and abiding in the shadow of My hand to be in a place of perfect protection in these perilous times. This is the location and there is where the walls go up. But how do you get to the secret place? By faith and faith speaks. You must say to Me: “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!”
Trust Me to protect you and make your refuge and fortress in Me. And now let us go on to see how I protect you.
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His truth is a shield and bulwark. Psalm 91:3-4.
My truth is your shield and bulwark. Here is good building material for you to incorporate. My Word is truth. Jesus prayed I would sanctify you in truth and He informed you that My Word is truth. My Word sanctifies you and cleanses you. It is also your shield and buckler to ward off pestilence and all the snares of the devil.
This is the way My Word protects you: every lie fails before the truth. The truth wins. When the devil attacks you by accusing you of not being forgiven for your former sins you are shielded from that attack by answering it with the truth: “Oh no you don’t talk to me like that. The Holy Spirit testifies to me that the Lord remembers my sins and offenses no more, Hebrews 10:17, they are gone, all borne by Jesus and punished in His mortal body, Isaiah 53:4-5. They are no longer mine.” Or the same about sickness, you answer with the truth that you are healed already for Jesus bore your sickness and pain in His own body. Then command and that unclean spirit of infirmity to go and he must go. And cast him out in Jesus’ Name.
You will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not approach you. You will only look on with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. For you have made the LORD, my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place. Psalm 91:5-9.
In this secret place where you dwell in My as your refuge, you will watch the wicked be recompensed but you shall not be touched. The evil one cannot touch you. Jesus was untouchable though the devil tried to stop him. You are hidden in Me till harm pass by.
Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge until destruction passes by. Psalm 57:1.
Jesus and later His followers experience this miracle of protection hidden under My hand.
Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus was hidden and went out of the temple. John 8:58-59.
Hidden from attacks to cut short your life.
And all the people in the synagogue were filled with rage as they heard these things; and they got up and drove Him out of the city, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city had been built, in order to throw Him down the cliff. But passing through their midst, He went His way. Luke 4:28-30.
Hidden from the strife of tongues.
How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, before the sons of men! You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. Blessed be the LORD, for He has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city. Psalm 31:19-21.
I have you covered. And read on, for it is an even greater covering that you are to build your ark with.
No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent. Psalm 91:10.
To what am I referring back to here? The Passover. How did I protect the homes and bodies of My Covenant people from the plague that destroyed the first born of Egypt in judgment against them? By the blood of the lamb covering the entrance to their homes. Exodus 12:13. And that is the same way I will cover you, but just as the Israelites had to apply the blood themselves or be struck by the destroyer, you have to put it over your home, your heart, your eyes, your ears, and those of your children and others by the spiritual sacrifice of prayer.
If you have read the Book of Revelation you know that this is the way you overcome the accusations of Satan that he raises night and day to get you to condemn yourselves by agreeing with his condemning lies—by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony. Revelation 12:11. So again, we see the agreement with the walls of Psalm 91: My Word as your testimony and the Blood of Jesus as your release from sin, sickness, and pain. This is protection but it is also taking authority over the evil one so you tread upon the lion and the serpent.
And then comes the third wall of protection in Psalm 91: For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not strike your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:11-12.
My heavenly host. I give you who are born again a guardian angel, and as Jesus told you, you can call upon Me to dispatch twelve legions of the angelic host to protect you.
And they will hide you under their pinions from the attacks of men:
But the high priest rose up, along with all his associates (that is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with jealousy. They laid hands on the apostles and put them in a public jail. But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the gates of the prison, and taking them out he said, “Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple the whole message of this Life.” Upon hearing this, they entered into the temple about daybreak and began to teach. Now when the high priest and his associates came, they called the Council together, even all the Senate of the sons of Israel, and sent orders to the prison house for them to be brought. But the officers who came did not find them in the prison; and they returned and reported back, saying, “We found the prison house locked quite securely and the guards standing at the doors; but when we had opened up, we found no one inside.” Now when the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests heard these words, they were greatly perplexed about them as to what would come of this. But someone came and reported to them, “The men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people!” Then the captain went along with the officers and proceeded to bring them back without violence (for they were afraid of the people, that they might be stoned). Acts 5:17-26.
The angels came and got them out and it was hidden from men’s eyes. They are ministering spirits to serve you who are heirs of Salvation (Yeshuah in Hebrew, which is the Name of Jesus). Joint heirs with Yeshuah (Jesus).
You will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent you will trample down. Psalm 91:13.
This you do by My Word and what I have done for you in Christ. I have made Him to be wisdom to you and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.
In righteousness you will be established; you will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; and from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Isaiah 54:13-15.
When you know who you are in Christ you are established in righteousness and you cannot lose it for it is My righteousness. I put all your sins on Jesus and put His righteousness on you. The divine exchange that can never by reversed. Jesus reversed the curse for you. And now no weapon formed against you can get to you no matter how close range it is fired.
“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness and vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17.
And let us go on to the next wall of perfect protection:
Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My Name. Psalm 91:14.
I have given you My Covenant Names in Jesus, the LORD your healer, the LORD your righteousness, the LORD who looks ahead and provides, the LORD is peace, the LORD of Hosts, the LORD who sanctifies you, the LORD your Shepherd, and I have given you His Name, Jesus, which is the Name above every other name to whom every knee shall bow. His Name is the only name given to men by which you MUST be saved. Acts 4:12.
And you who believe in His Name, to you He has given authority to cast out demons in His Name, to lay hands on the sick and they shall recover and to do the works He did and greater. All you need to do is ask and command in His Name.
“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and I will who him My salvation.” Psalm 91:15-16.
My secret place. Where is it?
O my dove, in the cleft of the rock, in the secret place of the steep pathway, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.” Song of Songs 2:14.
Do you remember I told Moses that he could not gaze directly on My face and live on in the flesh but I would hide him in the rock at My right hand and cover him with My hand. Jesus is the rock and He is seated next to Me, and when I raised Him from the dead, I raised you in Him. IN HIM.
In Jesus, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation, having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. Ephesians 1:13-14.
And there is your secret place. It is being IN CHRIST who saves you from the wrath to come and from every evil work that comes against you. The blood of the Lamb and the Word of the Testimony. Jesus is My Word! And the Word became flesh and dwelt among you—made His tabernacle with you.
And he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them. They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:14-17.
I have sealed you in Christ, your good Shepherd and equipped you for every good work.
David knew his good Shepherd and he sang:
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread? When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh, my adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war arise against me, in spite of this I shall be confident . . . For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent, He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, and I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. Psalm 27:1-3,5-6.
I conceal you in the secret place and what do you do there? Are you quiet, cowering in fear till harm passes by? Oh no! Not at all. In the secret place it is full of music and rejoicing, it is filled with the sweet cry of “Victory!” Shouts of joy and songs of praise. It is the banquet hall where My banner over you is love. Love is stronger than death. Love never fails. My secret place is filled with nothing but love.
For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. Psalm 63:7.
I love you. Come dwell with Me in the secret place that I have sealed you in with My Spirit as a pledge in Jesus. And the secret place is none other than the Holy of Holies at My throne of grace in Heaven for Jesus has made for you a new and living way there and you can dwell there with Me in the Spirit at all times.
