Thy Deliverance Draws Nigh; Psalm 69! Day 7
By Robin Kirby-Gatto
Leading up to these verses David realizes that His prayer and praise, God in Him, has to be louder than the enemy at his gate!! In seeing this truth we see David shift and is able to analyze the enemy within his own soul that has been at the place of the wound.
14 Rescue me out of the mire, and let me not sink; let me be delivered from those who hate me and from out of the deep waters. 15 Let not the floodwaters overflow and overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up nor the [dug] pit [with water perhaps in the bottom] close its mouth over me. 16 Hear and answer me, O Lord, for Your loving-kindness is sweet and comforting; according to Your plenteous tender mercy and steadfast love turn to me. Psalm 69:14-16 Amp
Deliver in Hebrew is natsal naw-tsal and means to snatch away, whether in a good sense or bad sense, defend, deliver, escape, pluck, preserve, recover, rescue, take out, rid and save. (SC # 5337) The Hebrew letters that compose the word deliver are Nun, Tsade and Lamed forming the Word picture of Life Catching us by God’s Authority/His goad; remember Lamed is the ancient symbol of cattle goad that looks like a shepherd’s staff. Therefore, we see that God brings forth His life PRESEVER! He delivers you by His authority that is life that can catch you out of the place where you are. Tsade is the ancient symbol of a fishhook and means catch, desire and need. This entire word picture of the ancient Hebrew letters shouts Deliverance!
Mire here in Hebrew is tiyt teet meaning to be sticky, being swept away, mud, clay, calamity, dirt, mire. (SC # 2916) The Hebrew letters for mire are Tet, Yood and Tet. Tet again is the ancient symbol of a snake surrounding something and means to surround. Yood is the ancient symbol of an arm with a hand as in working and means works, make and deed. Therefore, the word picture here of Mire is that which surrounds you by the activity/works of the serpent that are surrounding your person or can we say laying around your neck whispering to you! In other words it is your circumstances that lie to you! You have heard of people saying that they are in a “sticky situation” all that means is they are in the mire mentally! That is what David is realizing is that the enemy within his soul is being manifested in his natural circumstances that are surrounding him!
Sink here in Hebrew is taba, taw-bah’ and means to sink, drown, fasten and settle. (SC # 2883) The Hebrew letters for the Hebrew word sink are Tet, Bet and Ayin forming the word picture of a House that is experiencing/sees surrounding. Therefore, both mire and sink in Hebrew have Tet in them. Mire has two Tets and sink has one. The fact that sink follows with Tet indicates the EMPHASIS ON BEING SURROUNDED in your circumstances moreover indicates a 3 fold cord. A 3 fold cord is not easily broken but by the power of God can be! It is the Word of God in power resident within you, the yoke of Christ Jesus that destroys the yoke of the enemy (the 3 fold cord of the lie around your neck of that serpent that needs to be lifted off).
Hate here in Hebrew is sane’ saw-nay and means to hate, enemy, foe, be hateful, etc. (SC # 8130) The Hebrew letters of hate are Sheen, Nun and Aleph forming the word picture of that which destroys life to come after your strength. Remember the Joy of the Lord is our strength. Again the enemy is out to suck you of all strength by God. The enemy will gladly give those given over to his devices strength that is like what he did with Cain when Cain murdered his brother. The enemy will give his venom of poison in a person’s heart and fill it with bitterness that they are consumed with the work of the devil which is to be a constant surrounding of lies when it comes to God’s people. If you feel as though the enemy is sucking your strength it is because you are wrestling with the ruling power not to give into the lie!!! In your weakness God is strong! God spoke to Cain that he must master sin so that it would not take him! This wrestling with darkness is all about whether or not we will give into it. The fact that you are being hit on every end and in weakness is evidence of your wrestling against the enemy!!
Moreover, that is what the enemy does to you in the spirit, is to surround you with his 3 fold cord of lies, to overwhelm you. The enemy cannot speak life but only speaks death. Therefore, to examine the fruit of your mouth what is it you are speaking about yourself and others? Are you speaking life or death; by the fruit you will know the tree! (Matthew 12:33)
Deep in Hebrew is ma’amaq mah-am-awk’ and means deep and depth. (SC # 4615) The Hebrew letters that form the word deep in Hebrew are Mem, Ayin, Mem and Qoof that together form the word picture of the flood that you see massively which causes you to be the least (humbled). God works all things to our good and the fact that the enemy comes in like a flood causes us to be more dependent upon the Father, upon the Word of Jesus and God’s Holy Spirit. Therefore, the process whereby the enemy meant to destroy you GLORY TO GOD IS ACTUALLY BUILDING YOU UP IN GOD!!!!!!
Waters here in Hebrew is mayim mah’-yim and means juice, water, flood, etc. (SC # 4325) The Hebrew letters forming water are Mem, Yood and Mem. Here again we have two Mems as in the word for ‘deep.’ Therefore, the emphasis here is the flooding and the massiveness coming against David’s soul; it is total chaos to David’s soul where there is no peace. The word picture for water here is the Massive works of the enemy (through those that hate David) flooding David’s soul. Do you see this; David realizes his focus has been on the enemy and not God! David has been giving attention to the enemy of his soul instead of giving attention to God! That which David needs to be set free from, which he now understands is the noise of the enemy; the lying serpent!
When we look at this composite of verse 14 we see that the enemy is coming against David but God is allowing it because it is working to David’s good! The circumstances that are surrounding David are to wake him up to be able to see that which has been sitting outside the gates of his own soul, the 3 fold cord of the enemy’s lies. It is David’s anxiety and fear that allowed them to enter. (see two notes on anxiety and fear links below).
What will it take to wake us up to the authority of Christ Jesus within; His Word is mighty to save, heal, set free and deliver to the uttermost!!!!!
15 Let not the floodwaters overflow and overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up nor the [dug] pit [with water perhaps in the bottom] close its mouth over me. Psalm 69:15 Amp
Overflow in Hebrew is shataph shaw-taf meaning to gush, inundate, cleanse, to gallop, conquer, drown, flow, overflow, overwhelm, thoroughly wash, etc. (SC # 7857) The Hebrew letters for overflow are Sheen, Tet and Pey forming the word picture of the words of the enemy (Pey) that have surrounded (Tet) and are devouring/destroying (Sheen). David acknowledges that he has let the words of the enemy surround him, which are trying destroy him. However, the wakeup call has come!
Deep in Hebrew is metsowlah mets-o-law meaning a deep place of water or mud, bottom, deep and depth. (SC # 4688) The Hebrew letters that compose this word are Mem, Tsade, Vav, Lamed and Hey forming the word picture of the chaos that has caught David and added to him the tongue of the enemy that is revealed. Lamed again is the ancient symbol of a cattle goad and means control, authority and tongue. The tongue of the enemy is overwhelming and surrounding David. It is trying to swallow him up like the well swallowed Jonah.
Swallow in Hebrew is bala baw-lah’ meaning to make away with by swallowing, to destroy, cover, spend up, devour, eat up and be at end.(SC # 1104) The Hebrew letters for swallow are Bet, Lamed and Ayin indicating here A HOUSE OF AUTHORITY THAT IS SEEN!!!!!! This is a God thing; David is now seeing the authority of the enemy has been coming against his person/his house and is able to analyze the deceitful words as they are with the dividing of God’s Word, the Sword of the Spirit. David sees that which he has given power to is the tongue of the enemy. The great thing here is that David “sees” because Ayin in Hebrew is the ancient symbol of an eye indicating to see, know and experience.
Pit beer in Hebrew is pit and a well. (SC # 875) The Hebrew letters for pit are Bet, Aleph and Resh forming the word picture a being a house (a place) that goes after the strength of a person. Therefore, that which is swallowing David of the lies of the enemy is going after all his strength, the joy of the Lord.
Shut in Hebrew is atar aw-tar’ meaning to close up and to shut. (SC # 332) The Hebrew letters are Aleph, Tet and Resh forming the word picture that which goes after our strength and surrounds the person. Aleph is the ancient symbol of an ox meaning strength, leader and first. Tet is the ancient symbol of a snake meaning to surround and Resh is head, highest and person.
Mouth in Hebrew is peh peh and means the mouth, edge, portion, speech, spoken, two-edged, etc. (SC # 6310). The Hebrew letters that compose the word mouth are Pey and Hey forming the word picture of THE WORD REVEALED!!
This revelation is about to hit home because let’s go further. Jesus said that the only sign He would give those who asked for one is the sign of Jonah. THE SIGN OF THE WORD REVEALED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Him, Teacher, we desire to see a sign or miracle from You [proving that You are what You claim to be]. 39 But He replied to them, An evil and adulterous generation (a generation morally unfaithful to God) seeks and demands a sign; but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For even as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:38-40 Amp.
The sign Jesus would give the people is that as the prophet Jonah was swallowed up by the whale and in the belly of the whale, so will Jesus be three nights in the heart of the earth. This representation here of Jesus overcoming and getting the keys of hell and the grave.
17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last, 18 And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead). Revelation 1:17-18 Amp.
The gates of hell will not prevail against the church!!!!!! The Word in you Revealed Jesus coming forth has already overcome the voice of the enemy and it was the swallowing up of the whale, the swallowing up in the pit that caused the stirring of the overcoming power of Jesus the Word to be revealed!
16 Hear and answer me, O Lord, for Your loving-kindness is sweet and comforting; according to Your plenteous tender mercy and steadfast love turn to me. Psalm 69:16 Amp
Hear in Hebrew is anah aw-naw’ meaning to eye, to heed, pay attention, to respond, to begin to speak, announce, testify, bear witness, etc. (SC # 6030) The Hebrew letters that compose the word here are Ayin, Nun and Hey forming the word picture to SEE LIFE REVEALED! The attention of God is upon you because in your mire, your pit believe it or not LIFE IS REVEALED AND IN TIME YOU DO SEE IT!!!! It is in the darkness that you see the great light and the greater the darkness the greater the light of the Word of God! The greater JESUS is revealed to you and through you!!!!!
Loving kindness checed kheh’-sed meaning kindness, favor, good deed, kindly, loving kindness, etc. (SC # 2617) The Hebrew letters that form the word loving kindness are Chet, Samech and Dalet forming the word picture of the separation unto God causes you to enter in and things are turned around! When you see the life resident within you God comes in and separates you unto His Word and TURNS YOUR MORNING into dancing!!!!
Good/sweet and comforting in Hebrew is towb tobe meaning good, pleasure, wealth, sweet, welfare, etc. (SC # 2896) The Hebrew letters for good here are Tet, Vav and Bet forms the word picture of the Surrounding of your house by the Nail, Yeshua, which adds and secures to you. This is the YOKE OF JESUS!!!! The Surrounding of Your house by the Nail, Yeshua; the truth of the Word is your yoke and surrounds your neck and speaks to you!
Turn here in Hebrew is panah paw’naw’ meaning to turn, to face, to look, behold, etc. (SC # 6437) The Hebrew letters for turn here are Pey, Nun and Hey forming the word picture of the Word of Life that is Revealed! Multitude in Hebrew is rob robe’ meaning abundance, multitude, plenty, increase, myriad, many fold, etc. (SC # 7230) The Hebrew letters for multitude is Resh and Bet forming the Word picture of the Most High’s House. Tender mercies in Hebrew here is racham rakh’-am meaning to have compassion, compassionate, bowels, tender love, mercy, pity, etc. (SC # 7356) The Hebrew letters for tender mercies is Resh, Chet and Mem forming the word picture of The Most High Separates Massively!
The Word of Life is revealed, by the House of the Most High that comes forth to separate you massively!!!! If you hold on in time the power of God’s Word resident within you is revealed in your darkness, which is why you are experiencing the trial anyway; it is 1 Peter 1:3-7.
3 Praised (honored, blessed) be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)! By His boundless mercy we have been born again to an ever-living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 [Born anew] into an inheritance which is beyond the reach of change and decay [imperishable], unsullied and unfading, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are being guarded (garrisoned) by God’s power through [your] faith [till you fully inherit that final] salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time. 6 [You should] be exceedingly glad on this account, though now for a little while you may be distressed by trials and suffer temptations, 7 So that [the genuineness] of your faith may be tested, [your faith] which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire. [This proving of your faith is intended] to redound to [your] praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) is revealed. 1 Peter 1:3-7 Amp.
It is the power of resurrection being manifested in you which is made evident in your trial where it feels as though you are suffering temptations, trials and tribulations so that your Faith, the Word in you branches forth to be revealed in your oppression, bondage and darkness!!!! I know this; this is my testimony having been delivered not by someone meeting with me but by MEETING WITH THE WORD, EATING THE WORD AND THE POWER OF THE WORD, THE POWER OF THAT YOKE THAT SURROUNDED AND spoke to me even when I did not know it was speaking swelled up so large that it utterly destroyed the darkness oppressing me!!!!!! But it took the darkness to reveal what was inside of me!!
Now I wrote this note initially on Monday and added a few small sentences three days later but could not finish it on Monday at the leading of the Lord. Well after I put the note aside and on Tuesday I wrestled with trying to finish it God said “wait Robin” and I knew if I tried to write it would be in my own strength which was not sufficient. I go to pick Rich up from work and would you know it the dream I shared below that had been written on Monday was confirmed on Tuesday. I had already written the dream below the day before I got the confirmation. I’ll share confirmation at the end of the dream.
I can give you a dream God gave me about two years ago before I went through a severe persecution by the enemy. God warned me about the attack to come and allowed the attack of the enemy; to work all things to my good and move me forward into the Call of Christ Jesus! In the dream I had a friend that had recently been in a pit and had come up out of the pit. I was scheduled to go in the pit and the way by which you would be carried into the pit is a machine that would pick you up by your head and drop you through this small hole in the ground. The machine looked like what is used for lifting cars that are to be crushed. Well I was out there the day it was scheduled to occur and for some reason the machine did not come that day. I went into the office of the guy that was over the whole thing and he was watching a video with a woman in his office of a scene of something coming against someone else (an attack of the enemy) and I asked him if I could miss the event altogether since the machine did not come that day. The guy assured me I could not miss it and that it was coming after to me but I had to overcome. I was told by my friend who had recently come out of this pit to make sure I had some nice warm socks on. This is what God showed me. The machine picking you up by the head indicated an attack against the mind and it was enclosed like a mouth around the head as here in scripture, indicating the enemy’s mouth surrounding your mind (the Hebrew letter Tet). The pit represented an attack that would come against me by the enemy that I would through Christ Jesus overcome! God always warns us by His Holy Spirit telling us what is to come. That was not the only dream but one of many not only that I had but others who pray for us had about me. Shortly after the dreams sure enough the vomit of hell started coming against my person by the lies of the enemy that were in fact overwhelming me and consuming me! What is so crazy is that this attack has been one of many that have happened by the persecution that I have endured in the ministry. As Jesus was hated and persecuted, was reviled against the spirits of this age in the world will do the same to us through whoever is given over to this spirit. I’ve had people that satan cloaked and brought in who were appearing as though they were of God only to find out that they were of the devil because their soul needed deliverance from the pit in which they continually sat in of the devil’s lies; they were swallowed up in their soul and in their person and speaking out of that place they were, the darkness of the enemy was what was strengthening them as it did with Cain.
The confirmation I got about the dream the next day after writing it is when I was on the way to pick Rich up from work I saw that head gripping thing from my dream and I pulled up beside the vehicle and it was A TREE REMOVAL TRUCH! You are a tree planted by Rivers of Living Water where your roots grow deep but the enemy is trying to remove you from that abiding, that place of life!! However, God in you overcomes!!! You are a Tree of Righteousness!
However, the voice of the enemy on the outside was also revealing the voice of the enemy at my gate that had been lying to me and surrounding me to oppress me and keep me SMALL!!!! It is no different for us when we are in circumstances which scream loudly against our person telling us everything contrary to the Word; the bottom line is whose report do we believe????
The attack of the enemy against your soul is the sifting whereby you know whose tongue, whose word CONTROLS YOUR HOUSE, YOUR PERSON!!! WHOSE REPORT DO YOU BELIEVE!!!! This wakeup call to David was to show him that in the past who had grown weary enough by the enemy stealing his strength and that weariness came against his mind and caused his mind to be stayed on the attack of the enemy instead of the goodness of God!!! This is what Job experienced; in the midst of all of the attacks of satan against Job and the dwelling of Job and his friends on the circumstances of Job is no different than this! The circumstances of Job were a wakeup call to the lie of the enemy in his soul! THE BONDAGE OF YOUR SOUL, WHETHER ANGER, ADDICTION, REJECTION, ANXIETY IS TO GET YOU TO WAKE UP OF THE VOICE, THE WORD THAT IS CONTROLLING YOUR HOUSE!! The enemy can only weary you in your mind by the surrounding of his lies.
1Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, 2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 JUST THINK OF HIM WHO ENDURED FROM SINNERS SUCH GRIEVOUS OPPOSITION AND BITTER HOSTILITY AGAINST HIMSELF [RECKON UP AND CONSIDER IT ALL IN COMPARISON WITH YOUR TRIALS], SO THAT YOU MAY NOT GROW WEARY OR EXHAUSTED, LOSING HEART AND RELAXING AND FAINTING IN YOUR MINDS. Hebrews 12:1-3 AMP
It is on the Rock of Christ Jesus the Word that which the gates of hell cannot prevail and it is resident within you!!
David here woke up and was able to realize what was coming after him; the massiveness of the lies of the enemy surrounded David and put him in fear trying to bring in chaos and get David’s strength! The enemy tries to weary you in your mind because only there can the enemy overcome you! THE BATTLEFIELD IS THE MIND!!! satan WANTS TO WEARY YOU IN YOUR MIND like that machine in my dream that wanted to grab me by my head and put me in a pit! In the midst of the trial and tribulation I needed to be covered in GOD’S PEACE, THAT GOD IS ON MY BOAT AND IN MY STORM FOR ME TO WAKEUP AND SEE HE IS GOD OF EVERY STORM!!! HE IS GOD OF ALL THE EARTH!!! HE IS GOD NEAR ME AND IN ME THROUGH JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When David saw the works of death coming against his person he then cried out for LIFE AND THE LIFE PRESERVER, DELIVERANCE SHOWED UP! Therefore, allow this circumstance to cause you to cry out for life.
God bless you Robin Kirby-Gatto
14 Deliver me out of the sticky mire (bring forth Your life to catch me by Your goad, authority and tongue from those works of the lies of the serpent that have surrounded me), and let me not sink (see myself surrounded by the serpent in my house), let me be delivered from my foes (who have activities to destroy my strength) and from out of the deep waters (the flooding I see massively bringing chaos, which causes me to be the least as I see the chaos in my circumstances). 15 Let not the waterflood overflow me (destroy and surround me by the words of the enemy), neither let the deep swallow me up (do not let the chaos catch me and add unto me the tongue of the enemy to be revealed in my circumstance so that all I see is the place where I have been overcome by my foe, the lie of the serpent) nor the pit shut its mouth over me (where the strength of my person is surrounded by the enemy’s word only to reveal the lie of the enemy). 16 Hear me, O Lord, (I now see the revealing of life), for your loving-kindness is good (has separated me and turned things around to cause me to enter into Your House through the Nail, Yeshua and be surrounded by You); according to Your multitude of compassion and steadfast love turn to me (cause Your Word of life to be revealed by the House of the Most High that separates me massively unto You). Psalm 69:14-16 TGBFWY (copyright Robin Kirby-Gatto)

2 Declare John 1:5
3 Read John 1:1-18 again.
4 Ask God to expose to the light the lies of the enemy that are surrounding you only to reveal the power of His Word in you! Now with John 1:1-18 take the Word of God and come against the lie.
