Divine Protection
Possibly The Most Precious Promise
That Is Not Taught To Christians

Why Don’t Christians Believe In Divine Protection
Unbelief
Feelings
Our Experience
Religion

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…

Some Will Not Let The Bible Get In The Way Of What They Believe

Psalm Verse 1-2
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

He who dwells (yashab -to sit down, to remain, or to settle, rest) in the secret place of the Most High (El-Elyon)

Ephesians 2:4-6
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…

We Dwell In Christ
A Place of Peace, Safety and Security
Because of Christ’s Sacrifice 2000 Years Ago

The “Secret Place” Is Where You Are United In Christ

Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty (Shaddai).

The Shadow Speaks of Intimacy and Closeness

I will say of the Lord (Yehovah -Yahweh),
“He is my refuge (machaceh – shelter from storms and attacks) and my fortress;
My God (Elohim), in Him I will trust.

Four Names Of God
Psalms 91:14b 
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

Four Names Of God In Verses 1-2

El-Elyon- Most High God, Possessor Of Heaven and Earth, None Higher

Shaddai – God Almighty, The All Sufficient One, The More Than Enough God

Yehovah -Yahweh – Covenant Keeping God (Holiest Name of God)

Jesus Name is Hebrew “Yeshua” translates as
“Yahweh Saves”

Elohim – The God of Power, The Creator

CRAB – Translation
He who dwells, Rest in Christ, that secret place of the Most High God, who is the possessor of heaven and earth,
He Shall abide so close that He Is under the shadow of the Almighty, All Sufficient One, who has more than enough for every need.
2 I will say of Jesus, That He is a Covenant, Word Keeping God who will not and cannot lie,

I WILL SAY!
“He is MY fortress, MY stronghold and where I am hidden from all attacks;

I Will SAY!
“HE Is My All Powerful God, in Him Only I will trust.”

You Must Speak It!

Faith Involves
Believing In Your Heart
As Well As Speaking With Your Mouth

2 Corinthians 4:13
13 And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak,

Psalm 91:3
3 Surely He shall (Not Maybe, Sometimes or Might) deliver you from the snare of the fowler (professional bird catcher)
And from the perilous pestilence(dangerous diseases and viruses).

John 16:33
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Psalm 91:4a
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;

Represents Mans Rejection of:
God’s Holy Standard – Stone Tablets
God’s Provision – Golden Pot of Manna
Godly Appointed Leadership – Aaron’s Rod
Covered By The Mercy Seat

Ex 25:22
And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.

Psalm 91:4b
His truth shall be your shield (large protective shield) and buckler (smaller disc shape).

John 17:15-17
I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

Psalm 91:5-6
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror (Fear) by night, Nor of the arrow (physical attacks) that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence (diseases and viruses) that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

The More We Remind Ourselves of the Lord’s Daily Protection,
The More Our Faith In His Protection Will Grow In Our Lives

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
