The Euphrates River has a root word in it that means to break forth, similar to Gihon. But the entirety of the word and its etymology traces back to a Hebrew understanding of the Euphrates as being “sweet water” and became associated with fruitfulness.
We are living in a world with hurry sickness. How many accidents take place everyday due to speedy travel? How many relationships get unceremoniously destroyed because of a rush to judgment? We even stick God in a microwave oven and demand that He cook up a quick solution to the dilemmas of our lives. But to truly experience the love and power of God we have to slow down a bit, meditate on the good things of God, and step into the flow, in the sweet waters of His grace...Listen Now

The pile of rocks was named by Laban one thing in his Chaldean tongue, and another in Jacob’s Hebrew tongue; they meant the same thing, but they spoke a different language. In the future Jacob would view it from the opposite direction as Laban; and it would be a witness to basically leave each other alone. The spiritual must leave the fleshly alone. Jacob journeyman must not speak the same language as Laban leaders; they both will appear to say the same thing, but the variation comes in where one lives. Laban lives on the other side of Euphrates. He will always believe that his angle is correct; that his views are without fault; that his angle of perception is just as viable and valuable as Jacob’s; yet, Jacob is from the Promised Land; those who have laid beneath God’s ladder, watched angels ascend and descend, and poured oil of covenant anointing upon an unforgettable rock; these will never see things the same way as Laban. The word Jegar-sahadutha means the same as Gilead, heap of witnesses. They are witnesses at the same place, but not of the same thing….

You can’t see it. You wonder if it’s even there. It’s like an invisible shield. You don’t really know it’s there until you run into it. And then the collision can be painful, yet quite revealing. Are you going too fast? Are you traveling too slow? Are you in the right lane of life?
It appears that you can do anything; go anywhere; try anything. But that is the deception of the limitless. You can’t really go that far; there’s an edge and it drops off into destruction. You can’t really go that way; there’s a pitfall with dangerous snakes. So, the idea of freedom is not as Grand Canyon large as one might think. There is a boundary. You can’t see it because it’s camouflaged by conscience.
Some will sear their conscience and soar to new heights of moral experimentation. But the atmosphere of liberality will give way to the gravity of expense, and when too much has been exhausted the plummet will be fast and the crash will be disintegrating. You see, man was not made to do anything; he was made to do one thing. Know God. Anything less than knowing God becomes a spinning world of possibilities and made up theologies and self help ideas that promise liberty from the perceived chains of religious bondage. But then there is that disguised limit. There is that thirst deep in the crevices of the heart, a parched need for Divine water in the depth of the soul. Listen now...

Don’t be duped by false doctrine. Don’t be swindled by the cynical. Stand your ground on truth. Hold true to the foundation, God’s Word. At every turn there is a salesman of darkness who will try to get you to believe their goods are the best. In every shadow there is a sly whisperer of imagination trying to get you to walk away from what’s right for an experimentation of the unknown. Listen now…
