Understanding the Name of God in Psalm 27:4 (Part 3)

God an ever present help!

Psalm 27:4

King James Version (KJV)

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of theLord, and to enquire in his temple.

The last phrase in this verse; ‘in His Temple’ is a masculine noun (Transliterated word ‘heykal’) meaning a palace, temple, nave,or sanctuary that comes from the word yakol. It means or pertains to the sense of capacity of something in this case God’s capacity to prevail, overcome, endure, have power, or to be able. As well as these other meanings: to be able, be able to gain or accomplish, be able to endure, be able to reach. In reference to prevail it means to prevail over or against, overcome, or be victor. Lastly it means to have ability, or have strength.

This is such a beautiful verse (Psalm 27:4) because David is professing and prophesying what and where we should be in Christ Jesus right now. This is not a hope; this is a reality of choice. We can choose to be living this life inside Christ Jesus now when we chose Jesus as our Lord (Covenant talk) and Savior.


Romans 10:9

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.


Psalm 27:4 was fulfilled in us and for us in John 14:20 this scripture because we are His temple!


John 14:20

Amplified Bible (AMP)

At that time [when that day comes] you will know [for yourselves] that I am in My Father, and you [are] in Me, and I [am] in you.


How do we access Psalm 27:4? By receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10.) You than make a decision to receive His Word just like you receive Him as first and for most in your life.


John 15:4

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.


Whose fruit are you bearing? You are bearing the fruit of God! When you do this is what happens.


John 15:7

Amplified Bible (AMP)

 If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.


What beauty will you be beholding like David?


John 16:13

Amplified Bible (AMP)

But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].


That’s why it’s all good…


Romans 8:28

Amplified Bible (AMP)

We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
