THE WORD IS: Tertium Quid...
It is a Latin word; it means "the third thing"! I often used this as an alias when writing something where the message was more important than who wrote it. There is a rule of three in writing; it's said to make things more digestible, appealing and intriguing!
I have known for some time that confirmations come in threes. Recently the word that the Lord placed on my lips upon waking was "TRINITY"! Meaning three, the power of the Triune: ~God the Father, God The Son and God the Holy Spirit! It has such meaning all on its own but it was a forwards and backwards confirmation to my spirit about something I already knew was amiss. Recently, I had been on the fence about an issue; I commended the matter to the Lord for clarification and indeed my confirmations came in THREE's. I had my suspicions and without having to lift a finger the matter came to nought without any action or provocation on my part. I got the confirmation I needed and dusted my feet accordingly! God is so good like that, He always manages to take up matters and handle them when we seek to follow obediently!
2 Cor 13:1"By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established."
Things that are considered complete or entire all have the element of three as very prominent!;
- Three attributes of God - omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence.
- The three persons in grammar - me, myself and I.
- The sum of all human ability - thought, word and deed.
- The three types of matter - animal, vegetable or mineral.
- The three parts to discernment of time - past, present and future.
- Jesus raised three persons form the dead.
- In Ephesians 6 We are instructed to stand 3 times against the attempts of the devil.
- The number 3 represents "Perfection"
- There are 3 dimensions -length, width, and depth.
AND to add to this list a few more found from the following ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_three_(writing) )
- The Bible has three Patriarchs.
- Three Hebrews are delivered from the Fiery furnace.
- Three Magi visit the infant Jesus in Bethlehem.
- Jesus thrice resists temptation from the devil while fasting in the desert.
- Three men including Jesus are crucified.
- Jesus rises from death on the third day.
Likewise, it's a lesson, a warning and a promise to the wicked; Not once did a man (Peter) deny Jesus and turn on Him, but three times. The word says that he who does so shall get many stripes! God is long suffering with us and so very mercifu but to those whom actively and knowingly go out of their way to do ill; they will have a price to pay and it will be a measure more than the rest!
LUKE 12:47King James BibleAnd that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not [himself], neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many [stripes].
Revelation 8:12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
Ezekiel 5:12A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.
Revelation 8:11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
We sustain ourselves with three meals a day; morning, noon and night. We are instructed to seek the Lord with all of our heart, mind and soul. So I tie this message up with a bow; which incidentally consists of of two loops and a knot! Remember the sacrifice that the Lord has put in place for us and let us apply yourselves to it. As many times as we seek our physical needs in this realm we are to be seeking God's word, confirmations and communing with Him. We should also repeatedly pray for our enemies, those whom have hurt us; not just once or twice.
