Greetings friends, new listeners, welcome to the sound Sharon not thanking you for joining us today because we know Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Our message today is for all who have never experienced the valley of tears, a place where it seems all blessings are cut off or lost its entitled from Baca to baraka. God wants to take you from Baca the valley of tears to baraka the valley of blessing and turn your tears into triumph. I preach this message by personal experience, so I'm excited to tell you how to get from Baca to baraka were the Lord morning and I want to go right into the word of God. If you have your Bibles with me, let's turn to the book of Judges chapter I want to minister morning on the subject from Baca to baraka were going to go from the valley of tears. The valley of triumph ever get a beginning Judges the second chapter reading verses one through five and an angel of the Lord came up from Gill gal to both keen and said I made you to go up out of Egypt and brought you into the land which I wear under your father's, and I will never break my covenant with you that my part. This is your part and you shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land, you shall throw down their altars, but ye have not obeyed my voice. What have you done this.

Wherefore I also said I will not drive them out from before you, but they shall be as thorns in your side, and their gods shall be a snare unto you, and it came to pass, when the angel of the Lord spake these words, and all the children of Israel that the people lifted up their voice and wet, and they called the name of that place both keen and they sacrificed there unto the Lord. Now we have here were the angel of God has come to the people of Israel after the time of Joshua because the Bible declares that during the lifetime of Joshua law and all of his counterparts that the people of Israel obeyed obeyed the Lord and did all the Lord commanded them. But now that Joshua God's servant is going up in the sea. The people have not obeyed the voice of the Lord when God said this is not coveted on date with you and I'll never break my covenant God's word.

My covenant will not break, and neither will I alter the words going out of my mouth. But God told them undergoing the landing just Troy. All of them. We get in that land. But the Bible says that we read here with. But even with the tone of regret and reluctance not obeyed my voice. I had done this because we were reading Judges the first chapter we find out Tribes that went over to the West Bank because Moses had allowed to have prompted Jordan, but this time went into the land of Canaan and they would not destroy the wicked tear down all their altars because God said if you don't dare God's will be a snare on the you but I that went over we find out that the majority of them don't to dry out the if you would read and the building of time, he bailed and rebelled and such and such and become that you have not done what I told you to do more for you. I'm renewing the land but I tell you the land, but because you have not done that they are going to be a snare to you and thorns in your side. When the angel the Lord that broke the heart of the people and the people became green and the Bible. Their voice is one people began to wait and wait means that begins away and let what the brain crying right in the Bible. They name the name of that place both which means that we've been valley of tears now were going to rain valley again, hundreds of years later working to revisit this very same valley but I wanted you into some people were you can turn there now and add your charting.

I will tell you that at the beginning of the Psalm. A lot of your Bibles will say that this was to be played to a certain kind of instrument called IDT which would be like our guitar today.

It was a song that was meant to be so we get this particular song were going to find out that they're going to go from the bulky, the valiant tears and weeping and God is going to bring them toward trying out I want to say this before we read this.

God never waste your tears God will waste your tears, your tears are not wasted 5060 law collected tears in your care bottle. My wanderings are not hearing from you what you are collecting my dear sometimes care model and collect my God.

Never waste our tears, though there was rain and the only way all though sometimes your high tears, but because sometimes you can have a rainbow in your soul because you will collect them. We know what we've been looking holy place before the altar of all bare bones that were God will collect our tears. I want you to know the Christian when we walk in those wanderings that David said he you know all about my wanderings.

And sometimes you will come to the tears, but what I want you to understand the experiences of your Christian walk places on the fee you are way you look at the time God weeping, but you see what God will do with them. Their situation and determine the Lord now is when you're in those places you need to draw closer to the Lord and not pull away some times when they get to start start down or something. Then when Soren was not withdrawing away from church right now but that's the worst thing that you could do because you're no longer in your bond and see Raleigh get more depressed you want to get weaker and your faith is the only thing that can give you a ring, and only me when you're in God. The word of God.

And when you do that placing more territory to the enemy, but it will press your way and come to the house of God that you will find something to you and you get to be in operation by the same here at home, and even Christians think God brought me through many a dark places, but lament God not to do the supplement you eat your food you take your bike building might help is your primary and listen to what JB knows but you can't lean on them as your primary source of nutrients arena implies a X box seen Oracle or a football game to go to the time test takes place.the arena or hold on, but I wanted to work in 25 one another to provoke with love and to good work. Not thinking of yourselves together and rub some and that's why in the Bible. Otherwise we wouldn't have the Scripture and the more as you see that approaching. So now we have a lot approaching when Paul wrote this in Hebrews 2000 years ago. I think they were a lot closer today because home and what and read Bob all lessons, all my take all the wonderful teachers and there's a lot out there I'm when the Bible says when you coming in from knocking one another to provoke here. We usually think of it in a negative sense, but here it's in the good said that this means the pull of you and you know we always think you provoke me to get angry.

We recently took the body when were home.

Well I'll tell you the answer you can't so you don't feel like you need to be in the house of God, because you feel like you can get everything you need. What about what you owe to the body of Christ. You are not your bills are piling up and going wrong in your life lately get to stay home from church. Damon will go to read in just a moment.

I promise you will him the last thing he did was go to church. He did not think they did was God, for God's presence made it all with but it God was glad when they said going to the house of the Lord because he realized that in God there was a place where he could be refreshed and he could be blessed and lifted off and so with that in mind, let's now look at some 84. I will read the start off verses one through four. How amiable our guide tabernacles, old Lord of hosts, my long. Thank you for the courts of the Lord, my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God, yeah, I have in the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, old Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

Are they that dwell in the house will still be praising the same law and when you see the word.

Many different interpretations but most people think to be of the opinion that it means that no good. So the house of the Lord may be praising the Lord our guide tabernacles. The Lord of hope. The water will be better translated that we could understand beloved allow the place where we can come and be in the present, the Lord Jesus Christ implies that part of the body of Christ, that we were working on how much to be God and David delighted the company.the point that is not to get in the house of the Lord to get into God's presence is not dead, but would not be in his presence. Now we have an interesting thing taking place here in verse three and what I want you to see if there's a parenthesis and here about the birds and we got out of the middle on the side of medical flow together like you belong, let me show you what I mean yeah I found house in the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young now offers a Lord that would lead us to believe that there were birds nest up on the altar that does battle there). Well, that's not what it means and the problem is we got to take it out and read it like my all lighting along with you. Even the courts of the Lord, my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God, the Lord of hosts, my body, my King David. Be kind to your altar because the Lord God. The analogy it's like the bargain makes the heart supply protection where they are just like the I can get your copy of the place where you will protect the black number take care of their baby bald Eagle the big bad birds. Birds danger list. The sparrows of plaintiff Peter said all about what it will bald your father doesn't see how the number in the Balkans. There I got below a certain number in danger, but God can argue that many so just like this And his alter what we can come and blessed are they that dwell in your house and in your presence will still be praising the verse five Blessed is the man whose strength is in the and whose heart are the ways then through the valley of the make a well. The rain also the pool. They go from strength to strength. Every one of them in Zion. Before God. Now this is the first I really want you to see I told you we were to come back down the bulky, and that's exactly where we are to come to the Lord is strong, but because the Bible said is doing and come back tears now and wondering journey into the valley of tears of bagel.

Now I just read about the second chapter is slightly different but every now and again, John was called bulky Laurel. I hear hear. Parents called bank dollar by telling now when we judge it was a place to be able to play well because of their obedience about the heart in your side be updated with all these didn't get rid of him like a told you Dr. Lloyd and cry speaks about tears and suffering and weeping but hearing before the person who is one God.

God is not from the Lord when they thought that those tears that waxing cry are a well here, the well like refreshment whole actually Laurel the rain. Also the pole all the right places on the right leg even when it was wrong when you invited the travel time in the lower God is going to take those tears when you're in that valley, and it's going to become refreshment. It's going to become a well it's going to become a place of refreshing hallelujah you're going to go from 4 o'clock talk to Barack because the word Veronica means less scenes in the Hebrew. They say that he was pray and I think the real cause for denial of a new, blessed is the name of the Lord. The word Veronica means blessing and Barack is just the feminine form of the word you're going to go from bottom to Barack, you're going to go from weeping to gladness go from tears to try now that is if you run to the house of the Lord. Amen David Psalm 30 verse 11 that time for me my morning and evening all, and regarded me with gladness the prop 61 verse three the Lord is upon me, anointed me and pot anointed ministry. He's given me to give you that are in the morning to a point that I speak of great sorrow went really bad news or bad report came down to close her head amen is the silent travel distress great sorrow and give you beauty and if you really are talked about what a beautiful address sort of going pop on your crown beauty rejoicing away sorrow and that gave you jolly.

The Bible says that your garments always be white connector had no ointment when you comment will clean up your garments and anoint your head and delegate while there goes one of the note they are now able to present you will be 111 for the redeemed anybody here this morning that the redeemed of the Lord say so I the redeemed of the Lord shall return and calm with singing now by God where God counts what so whenever you read the Scriptures automatically translate the house of God. In your case, you can say paste tabernacle or if you're here this morning and you have another church. You know your your charge, whatever it might be so side.wherever you go, I returned with singing and joy shall be upon their head. They shall obtain joy and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

This way, come back to Bob to come back to the tears. Only this time they're going to come back with singing and everlasting joy targeted Barack not going to be about nine morning not going to get longer. Jeremiah 3113. Then shall the margin rejoice in the day, both young and old together will turn their morning in the joy that rejoice from there. Sorrow the angel of God came to them invoking were sorrowful in the English need to cry bitterly, but years later about a blessing and returned with joy and gladness and calm into pools of water. Amen we had not liked all this snow we got.

We are fed up with it were up here in the beyond, when you click water your flowers and you could wash your car in some places to bring bottled water into the school and some places people well what they may not like, shall not know, but in a few months from now or well will be followed. It takes rain and snow to make the blood come forth. The Bible said by many because of the rain and the snow to come down from heaven and return to bring forth the body and the blade so he could not have some rain, but if you those in your soul.


What an uplifting word from the Lord from Baca to Barack if you've ever experienced an extended time in the valley of tears. You know how painful it can be, but our tears are precious to God. Actually, David, the beloved psalmist prayed in Psalm 56 put my tears in your tier bottle and we learned in the book of Revelation that the prayers and tears of the Saints are gathered in the bowls before God's throne as sweet incense, the valley of Baca was one of Israel's lowest points where they lifted up their voices want to cry and lament over the judgment. Their disobedience had brought on the nation. It became known as the Valley of the key or tears, but centuries later, the writer of Psalm 84 declared that those who appear before God at his altars in the house of God go from strength to strength and when they pass through the valley of Baca the valley of tears. They make it into a well where the rain feels the pools, it becomes a valley of blessings. They turn their tears into trying out another Valley of testing for Israel was the valley of a core where sin in the camp committed by Aiken caused them to lose a battle and it became known then as the valley of a core of courtesies and reproach were Aiken and his family died in their bones were burned, but centuries later. Isaiah called that very same Valley Sharon a place where the flocks and God's people who saw him lay down and rest. Would you like to rest in the fields of Sharon to go from strength to strength to turn your tears and the triumph and into rainbows for your soul. The keys to appear in God's house and make your delight in place of safety at his altars, just as the sparrow builds a nest for her young. So God's altars are the place of blessing for his people. God never wastes our pain, and he will redeem our tears when we seek his presence in his house for one day in God's house is better than a thousand elsewhere to order from Baca to baraka send a love gift of $10 or more for the radio ministry to sound the faith PO Box 1744, Baltimore, MD 21203 request SEK 1024 order where it's also available on MP3 but to order SEK 102 from Baca to baraka by mail send your minimum love gift of $10 to PO Box 1744, Baltimore, MD 21203 if the Lord directs you.
