The Fifth Son of David, Edition 1 - Page Text Content

Dec 2011: DECEMBER

Dec 2011: than the birth of Christ is the reason he was born: Jesus was born to die. The death of Jesus is the single most important event of our human existence. He came here to die so that we may have a chance at eternal life. His life was the greatest representation of God's Grace towards us. No matter what we have done in life, because of Jesus' death we have a chance to live in the presence of God for all eternity. This is awesomely displayed in Luke 23. Jesus is being crucified along with two other criminals. As they're painfully hanging, nailed to the cross, one of the criminals taunts Jesus saying, | "If you're the Christ, then save yourself and us!" But the other criminal scolded him and answered, "Do you not fear God, seeing that you are being condemned the same as He (Jesus)? And we are rightfully punished for our deeds, but this man has done nothing to deserve this." And then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You get into Your Kingdom." And Jesus answered him saying, "Surely, today you shall be with me in Paradise." Now, let's look at this situation, as it is significant for us to understand God's Grace to us. This second criminal had lived a life of crime. He felt that his punishment of being crucified was deserving of his actions. I can only imagine what kinds of | things he must have done to feel that such a brutal punishment was deserving; but because of his truthfulness - admitting his sin, his humble spirit, and his belief in Jesus Christ as Lord, he was immediately forgiven and promised a life in paradise. He didn't make it into Heaven because of anything he did. He didn't have time to go out and do good deeds or make up for his wrong doings, as he was now facing death. He made it in by Grace alone! We are not saved by our actions. Just because you give a lot or are a nice person, doesn't mean you'll make it in. While those things are pleasing to our Father, they can't save us. We are saved ONLY by Grace. Thank God for that! | Amazing Grace | For the most part, we as Christians know that December 25th isn't actually Jesus' birthday. If you didn't know, I recommend that you dig a little deeper. I believe strongly in doing things on purpose. Don't do anything unless you understand what you're doing and why you're doing it. I don't think we should do anything, whether it be a tradition in the church or celebrating a holiday, if we don't understand the truth about it and do it to the glory of God. We shouldn't just do something because our mothers or grandmothers did it. We should do it all for God's glory. Though I am happy that He was born, more important | Ephesians 2:8 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God

Nov 2011: NOVEMBER

Nov 2011: This is the month we celebrate Thanksgiving. We all have so many things to be thankful for if we would just count all of our blessings. We take a lot of God's blessings for granted and focus on the wants, not needs, that aren't supplied (He promised to supply all our needs). Some of you are bitter because Joe has a Lexus and you're driving an 86 Camry. Some of you are bitter because Maxine got promoted but you've been there longer, in the same position. Some of you are bitter because your husband doesn't open your car door, or because your wife leaves dishes in the sink. Some of you get | so caught up on these minor things, that you can't focus on God and the tasks that He has placed before you. 2 Timothy 2:4 states, "No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier." The reason that you can allow these simple things to overtake your life is because you don't warreth. You aren't fighting the good fight. We're at war against Satan and his army. They're always fighting with diligence, but we don't have enough of our soldiers warring against them. We have to fight back! Instead of fighting your wife, your | husband, your friends, your family....fight Satan and his demons. Here you are fighting against your love ones and the war's not with them. Ephesians 6:12 states, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." The fight is not against your neighbor. We have to stop fighting each other. We are losing so many people because we don't understand the battle. We are too busy worrying about the affairs of this life that we aren't fighting as soldiers of the Lord in the battle for our Salvation. God gave us 3 important weapons to use to fight this war. The first is the bible. | The bible is the Word of God. If we know the Word, then we know every strategy needed to fight this battle. The second weapon given to us is prayer. God actually fights all of our battles. We have an open line of communication to God through prayer. His Word tells us that anything we ask in Jesus' name shall be done. It's that simple. The third weapon given to us for guaranteed victory is our tongue. Speak the Word. He said His Word shall not return unto Him void, so if He said it then it's true. His Word also tells us that life and death is in the power of our tongues. God spoke the entire world into existence. Through the God in us, we have the power to speak life into our situations. Fight the good fight! | Fight like THE Lion | Revelation 5:5 - And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals therof

Oct 2011: OCTOBER

Oct 2011: What kind of listener are you? Listening properly can determine whether a situation has a positive or negative outcome. Marriages are better when spouses learn to listen properly. Students learn more in class when they learn to listen properly. Friendships last a long time when friends learn to listen the right way. Listening, and how you listen, is very important as a Christian. Jesus emphasized this in Mathew:13 when He told the parable of the sower. It reads: "Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up they | were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. But others fell on ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." Jesus described four types of listeners. In the first situation the seed fell by the wayside and were devoured by the birds. These seeds never had a chance to grow because the ground is hard and will not receive a seed. This describes the type of listener that has a heart so hard that it won't receive the Word of God. This type of listener is immediately attacked and devoured by Satan. This person will not listen to anything contrary to their wants or lifestyle. They simply will not accept God's truth. | In the second situation, the seed fell on stony ground and sprang up into a plant immediately, but the sun scorched the plant and it withered away. The soil is very shallow in this area, causing the plant to spring up without a true foundation. This type of listener goes to church on Sunday, hears a good Word and is excited about applying it to their lives, but as soon as they walk out of church....it's gone. They receive it while sitting in church but don't live it. They don't apply it to their everyday lives because it never "grew roots" in their heart. These are what some people call the "Sunday Christians." In the third situation, the seed is sown amongst thorns. The plant grew roots into the fertile ground, but as it grew taller, the thorns wrapped themselves around the living plant and choked the life from it. | This type of listener receives the Word into their hearts and applies the Word to their lives. They live that Word as long as they're able to grow freely; as long as everything was good in their lives. But as soon as a storm came into their lives, they let it destroy them and take the joy of the Lord from their hearts. They don't know how to praise God through every cir-cumstance. Last but certainly not least, the fourth situation is the ideal situation. The seed is sown on good grown and crops are grown in great numbers. This type of listener hears the Word, receives it in their hearts, and under all cir-cumstances - good or bad - lives that Word for the glory of God. This is an everyday, 24/7 Christian that isn't defeated by trials in life because they know joy comes in the morning. We have to be good ground for the seeds God sow in us. | The Ground Rules | James 1:19-22


Sep 2011: Ladies, Ladies, LADIES!!! Guys too.....but mostly ladies. Let me ask you a question....what does God's Word say about gossip??? A lot of people only focus on the obvious sins; lying, stealing, killing, cheating, etc. A lot of us commit sin unknowingly everyday, and because it is God's will that none should perish, I want to tell you a few that we normally overlook. In the NIV translation, Romans 1:28-31 reads, "Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. | They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death..." Some of you may not have been aware of this, but gossiping is sinful. 1 Timothy 5:12-13 speaks specifically of women being idle and gossiping with one another. Proverbs 20:19 says, "a gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid anyone who talks too much." Gossip goes against everything God requests of us. You're talking about others | behind their backs, most times tale bearing (lying), judging a person, tearing them down rather than lifting them up. There is nothing Godly about gossip. NOTHING! In other words....cut it out. To all you high and mighty, better than everybody else people...being arrogant and boastful is a sin too. Everything that you are is because of the Lord. Everything that you have belongs to the Lord. Even yourselves! Knowing this, for you to act like you're better than someone else because of what you have, is saying that you believe you have it all because of yourself; and to believe that is to say that you don't believe God gave it to you. If you don't believe it was given to you by God, then you have no | reason to enter into His courts with thanksgiving in your hearts. If you want to be removed from the presence of God, try not acknowledging Him and His blessing in your life. It is especially bad for those of you that knew of His goodness and mercy, and once He started blessing you abundantly, took the credit for your good fortune. If you fit into that category, you need to read Hebrews 6:4-6. And last but certainly not least, for all of the young people, Romans 1 states that disobeying your parents is sinful. God has commandments for the youth also. It's important, parents, that we teach these things to our children. Proverbs 22:6 says, "train a child in the way he should go, and when he is older he will not turn from it." It's up to us...not the Sunday school teacher, pastor, or school teacher...to train our kids. | Killing Us Softly.... | Hosea 4:6 - My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge

Aug 2011: AUGUST

Aug 2011: Have you ever heard the statements, "Life is what you make it," or "The glass is half full," or "Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it?" All of these sayings have one basic fundamental concept in common: Perception. It's all about how you see things. Perception is a very powerful thing, and can be dangerous if not based on the principals of Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul's life is one big lesson on perception. Let's think about this: Paul started out as a persecutor of Christians named Saul. Because of His lack of knowledge of God's truths, his | perception of Christians was very negative. In fact, it was so negative, he based his career on throwing God's people in jail and even killing them for their faith. Until that day on the way to Damascus, when Jesus called him out and shined His light on him. After that day, Saul became Paul, one of the strongest apostles of Jesus Christ. Paul, who never physically met Jesus like the other disciples, would go on to write over half of the New Testament that we now live by. He went from persecuting the worshipers of Christ, to being persecuted for worshiping Christ. How | ironic is that? But Paul was not easily accepted into the family of Jesus Christ. All of the disciples were weary of having this man join the crew. After all, this is the same man that killed men for being Christian. Their perception of him prevented them from openly welcoming him. But Paul understood their feelings and did what he needed to do to be accepted into the family of Christ. Even more ironically, Paul's perception of things is what made him special. Paul had been locked up for years at a time, beaten, and persecuted for the sake of Christ. Most of us, with our sour perceptions, would think, "man...I give up! | I have been breaking my back for the Lord and He keeps allowing me to be thrown in jail. Forget this!" But Paul, when he couldn't go from place to place preaching the gospel because he was confined to a prison cell, wrote letters spreading the gospel; and thanks to his awesome perception while in the low moments of his life, we have most of the books in the New Testament. I think his perspective is best shown in 2 Corinthians 6 when he says Christians are seen as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. Or better yet, when speaking of death he said "to live is Christ, but to die is gain! " Do you share Paul's perception? | Perception is nine tenths of God's Law | 2 Corinthians 5:7 - We walk by faith, not by sight

Jul 2011: JULY

Jul 2011: Sometimes we make decisions in life that put us in the most uncomfortable places; and at other times God intentionally place us in uncomfortable moments to mold us and to bring glory to Himself. How many times in life have you been in a position that only God could get you out of? How many times did your situation look grim, like there was no chance you could come out of the situation unscathed or even alive, but you came out of it feeling better than you did going into it? If you ever took a chemistry class, you know that certain elements, when in an impure state, can be burned pure. You have to place the element in fire to burn off | the impurities. God does the same thing to us sometimes. He has to put us in the fire to burn off all of our impurities, whether it be lust, gluttony, greed, hatred, or any other sin. He knows just the right temperature of flame to drop us in to burn off those imperfections, while preserving what's pure. He sometimes drops us into the fire to display His power and increase our trust and faith in Him. This is shown in Ezekiel chapter 37. The prophet Ezekiel was an upright man, serving the Lord as he should be when God took him by Spirit to an extremely uncomfortable place. God placed him in a valley full of dry human bones. Being that the | bones were dry, we know that these people had been dead for a long time. God asked Ezekiel, "Son of man, can these bones live?" And Ezekiel wisely answered, "Lord, you alone know." God then gave Ezekiel instructions to prophesy to the bones, and Ezekiel did exactly as God commanded. The bones came together, joints grew around them, and then flesh around the joints. The breathe of life was placed in each one of them and they all rose up and became, quoting the words from the Bible, "an exceedingly great army." God took Ezekiel into this uncomfortable grave yard of a valley, where he was alone and pretty much the only living soul, just to show | His awesome power. Think about how much this trip must have increased Ezekiel's faith in God. By being obedient and doing exactly what God commanded of him, He was able to speak and give rise to old dried bones and watch them become an exceedingly great army. We will sometimes be placed in the most uncomfortable places, but if we just be obedient and do exactly what the Word of God commands us to do, we too can give rise to great things. Understand that God is in control of all things and He has all power. Once that is understood, you will stop looking at the uncomfortable places as burdens and start seeing them as opportunities. | Finding Comfort in Uncomfortable Places | Job 13:15 - Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him

Jun 2011: JUNE

Jun 2011: When things get hard in my life, I like to remember Romans 8:18. It reads, "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." This verse brings me comfort in the fact that I know, no matter what I have to suffer in this life, it won't compare to the glory I will experience in heaven. If we look at how John describes heaven in Revelation 21, I think we could all agree that it is worth it to suffer and fight flesh in this life to dwell forever in the presence of God. He says that the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descended out of heaven from God and the light that shone from it was like a precious stone. | He says that the walls in the city were as of jasper on the first foundation, sapphire the second, followed by chalcedony, emerald, sardonyx, sardius, chrysolite, beryl, topaz, chrysoprasus, jacinth, and amethyst; and the city itself was pure gold. Gold so pure that it was clear. Each of the twelve gates of the city were made of a different pearl. And my favorite part about John's description was what he said about the temple. the 22nd verse states, "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it." Wow!!! And then it goes on to say that no sun or moon is needed, because God's glory lit it! There won't even be a night time there! | Reading those verses allow me to endure the hardships of this life. What we go through here is no comparison to the glory in heaven. With that said, what we go through here is also no comparison to what some are going to go through in hell. I highly recommend that all people read Mary K Baxter's book "A Divine Revelation of Hell." This book gives Mary's experience in 1976 as she was visited by our Lord Jesus Christ while praying. Jesus told her that He wanted to give her a revelation about hell to tell the world. He then takes her on several trips into the depths of hell so that she could see how real hell is and relay the message to the people of the world. She describes hell as being in the core of | the earth and being physically shaped like a human body. Jesus first took her to the left leg of hell, where there were suffering souls in pits for as far as the eye could see. And that was ONLY the left leg of hell! There were all kinds of people there, young, old, rich, poor, sexually immoral, killers, etc. The ones that really struck me were the normal good people that never gave their lives to Christ; they kept putting it off until tomorrow. They were all begging and pleading with Christ as He walked by them. Some of them were quoting scripture and even preaching, but it was too late. With tears in His eyes, Christ would just tell them "Judgment has been set." I beg you, Please give your life to Christ before its too late. | Heaven? | Hell? | or | Joshua 24:15 - Chose you this day whom ye will serve

May 2011: MAY

May 2011: Though it should be an everyday thing, this is the month we use to celebrate mothers. This world was populated from the mother's womb. The Spirit of God was born as our Savior Jesus Christ from a mother's womb. With artificial insemination, it is possible for us to not have a physical father, but every one of us has a physical mother. You never see men bringing women on Jerry Springer to take paternity tests, because the one thing we are sure of is who our mothers are. A mother is the nurturer of the family. The man provides, but the backbone of the family is the mother. She is the glue that holds the | family together. Women, think about the love you feel for your children. Think about the bond that you have with them. Those moments that amazed you as they grew in your womb. The pain you went through to bring something so wonderful into the world. And no matter how much they look like a little alien, they were still beautiful in your sight. Physically, a piece of you has been designed into this person. Isn't it amazing? God has entrusted you with this wonderful being. Now imagine this...imagine if you were artificially inseminated by God! Imagine if God entrusted you with bearing His Seed. What if you were chosen to bring | God Himself into this world in flesh and blood? Lord knows how some of you would act! Some women would be all around the neighborhood bragging, "Yeah gurl! Who God? Yeah, that's my Boo. You know we having a baby?!" Or some of you would be trying to make a reality series about the pregnancy; be on tv talking about "So! You think you something cuz you pregnant by Kobe Bryant??? Gurl, I'm God's baby mama!!" Ya'll, know I'm telling the truth. So you know Mary had to be a special person for God to have chosen her for such an honorable task. It could not have been easy for her. She had just been given for marriage to Joseph and they had not yet made | any sexual contact. So she would have to explain to Him and her family why she was pregnant, and how many people do you think would believed she was still a virgin? So God had to choose someone that trusted Him and that would stand strong against criticism for His sake. He had to find someone humble and full of humility. Someone that wouldn't try to use this great wonder for fame or financial gain. He had to chose someone that would care for His seed and nurture Him. We were all made in God's image. Romans 8:16 says that we are children of God. So I ask you ladies...are you doing what God has entrusted you to do with His child? | Mary Had a Little Lamb of God | John 1:29 - Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world

Apr 2011: APRIL

Apr 2011: Growing up, we all had a brother, sister, cousin, or friend that was considered to be tough, or as often used on our side of the tracks, "hard." They would intimidate people with their look, size, or their threats. Some people were considered "hard" if they carried a knife or a gun with them, or even if they themselves have been stabbed or shot in the past. While all of those things make you "hard" in the eyes of the fearful, it means nothing to those of us that know Jesus. God's Word tells us not to fear them that can do our bodies harm, but to fear Him that | has the ability to do what He wants with our bodies and spirits. Therefore, those of us that are in Christ Jesus shouldn't fear anyone or anything, because for us "to live is Christ, but to die is gain." But if we were to look at the "hardest" human being to ever live...hands down...it would have to be Jesus. Why do I feel this way? Well, let's take a look: Jesus wasn't afraid to face ANYONE or ANYTHING! He would speak against the most powerful individuals and against the most belligerent mobs, and He would do it all UNARMED! There was | even an incident in the beginning of His recorded life when He went into the temple and the people were selling things and exchanging currency. Jesus made a whip out of robe and cleared the temple! He knocked money jars over and flipped tables over, telling the people to stop turning God's tabernacle into a market. Now, how many "hard" people do you know have shut down a group of hustlers alone? I bet not many. And okay, yeah....maybe you've been stabbed before...maybe you've been shot...maybe you've been shot nine times. It still doesn't compare to being crucified. My generation likes to use | the term "ride or die friend" to describe a person that will fight for you no matter what the circumstance. Jesus was the ultimate "ride or die friend." He was arrested, spit on, punched, flogged until flesh was removed and bone exposed, given a crown of thorns, carried a 100 lb crossbar, and crucified by being nailed through the wrists and the feet to the cross, shoulders and elbows dislocated, and lungs collapsed and full of fluid. He endured it all for friends that deserted him and the people that falsely accused Him. He endured it all while having the power to end it at any moment. He took it like a God,... like a man never could. | Take it like a God | Luke 22:42 - Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE, BE DONE

Mar 2011: MARCH

Mar 2011: How many of you have made mistakes in life? How many of you have made those mistakes knowing that what you were doing was a flat out sin? If any of you say "not me" to either of these questions, then you just included yourself because you're knowingly lying. We have all fell short at some point in life, and we have all done so knowingly at times. Whether it be sexual immorality, lying, stealing, gossiping, or coveting, we have all consciously sinned. Thank God for His Grace and Mercy! Jesus came simply to clean those blemishes (sin) from our spirits, so | that we may be seen faultless before our perfect God. For us, He does it spiritually, but He was able to physically do it for a few others. In John 8 there is a story of a woman that is brought to Jesus by a mob after being caught in the act of adultery. The mob wanted to find fault in Jesus, so they asked Him if they should stone her. They knew if He said no, then He would be speaking against the law, but if he said yes, then He had no compassion and would be saying it was alright to kill a person. How many of you know that our | perfect God always has the perfect answer to every question?!! Jesus, in all of His wisdom, didn't answer yes or no. He simply said "Let him that is without sin cast the first stone at her." He knew that these words would weigh heavy on the consciences of these people, for they all knowingly sinned at some point, just as this woman had. Everyone dropped their stones and left, leaving the shameful, humiliated, sinful woman sitting in the presence of our perfect Master. Even though He was justified to rightfully judge her, He did the opposite. He said to the woman, | "Woman, where are your accusers? Has no man condemned you?" She answered, "No man, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you. Go, and sin no more." He set her free! The bible tells us that whoever the Son sets free, is free indeed. How happy do you think this woman was that her accusers brought her to Jesus? He won't even allow you to be persecuted when you're obviously in the wrong! Even when the law says you should be! We have all been delivered by God before, but we must remember His command to this woman...GO, AND SIN NO MORE. | If God be for you, who can be against you?

Feb 2011: FEBRUARY

Feb 2011: 2011 | We all experience storms in our lives; those moments in life when nothing seems to go right for us. Those moments in life when it seems no one is on our side; when we feel God has removed His hand from our lives and abandoned us. I heard one preacher call this type of moment a "Ziklag Experience." Now, let's take a look at Ziklag in the bible. In 1 Samuel 27, we learn that Ziklag was a piece of land given to David and his men by Achish, the son of Maoch, king of Gath, but what's significant about Ziklag is shown | in chapter 30. David and his men returned to Ziklag, after being rejected by the Philistines, to find their city smitten and burned. All of the men returned to their homes to find that their wives and children were kidnapped by the Amalekites. David and his men were greatly distressed! The bible tells us in James 3:1 not to be many masters because masters receive greater judgement. David learns this lesson in the worse way. Because he was the leader of the group, everyone blamed him for this tragedy. His | own men discussed stoning him! It was probably the lowest point in David's life. Going from the highs of defeating Goliath and having favor with the king, to the lows of that same king trying to kill him, and now his own men talking of stoning him. David didn't always make the right decision, but he always did the right thing when he messed up. The last line in verse 6 says that David encouraged himself in the Lord his God! When everyone was against him, he encouraged HIMSELF! And then, instead of just acting on his fleshly emotions, | David asked God what his next move should be. We have a tendency to act on our emotions in hard times when we should really be depending on God. Because David went to God for the solution, ALL was restored to him and his men. See, we all have "Ziklag experiences" but we have to understand that they are just moments in between blessings. David went from defeating Goliath, to his own men wanting to stone him, to becoming the king of God's people. Endure "Ziklag" with faith and patience, knowing the kingdom is on the other side of it! | The Ziklag Experience

Jan 2011: JANUARY

Jan 2011: You're only in the valley because you have 2 mountains of blessings on either side of you! Next, let's analyze the word "shadow." Most people think of shadows as being bad or evil. There is one very important fact that people seem to forget about shadows: shadows cannot exist with a light source! If you're in the shadows, then you know there's light somewhere around you! Just keep walking fearlessly THROUGH the valley, into the light of God, up the mountain of blessings and know that God is beside you! | Yea, though I walk through the valley..... | Everyday as Christians we walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. If God would open our eyes for 2 seconds and allow us to see the spiritual world, we would probably have a heart attack from fear of all the demonic spirits around us; waiting for the opportunity to devour us. But like David so faithfully said, we MUST not fear. David didn't say he MAY not fear, or TRY not to fear, or PROBABLY won't fear; David boldly declares he WILL NOT fear. And why does David feel bold enough to declare such a strong | statement? He tells you in the next line, and his boldness is definitely justified by this reason. David says he will not fear anything "for Thou (God) art with me." The bible declares that if God be for you, who can be against you? David not only understood this statement, he lived it. Now let's analyze this verse a little further. The verse declares "yea, though I walk THROUGH the valley..." David didn't say that he STOOD in the valley or SAT in the valley or SLEPT in the valley or LIVE in the valley; he says though he walks THROUGH the valley. Troubles will | come in life, but it doesn't mean that we have to dwell in them. When trouble arises, just keep walking. When storms come, just keep walking. When you're enemies surround you, just keep walking. Walk THROUGH it all, because it can't last forever. Now let's look at the word valley. Webster defines a valley as "an elongate depression of the earth's surface usually between ranges of hills or mountains." See, the shadows of death are in the valley, but the hills belong toGod! Look to the hills, from which comes your help! | 2011
