In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 100:1-5, the Psalm opens saying, א   מִזְמוֹר לְתוֹדָה הָרִיעוּ לַיהֹוָה כָּל-הָאָרֶץ:  A Psalm for Thanksgiving. 100:1 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. (NASB)  The psalmist calls for every tongue to give praise, to applaud with which joy of heart, calling us to action, to raise our voices and shout, not being ashamed of our God and His saving power.  This is emphasized by the author saying, ב   עִבְדוּ אֶת-יְהֹוָה בְּשִֹמְחָה בֹּאוּ לְפָנָיו בִּרְנָנָה:  100:2 Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing. (NASB)  What does it mean to serve the Lord?  How do we get to know the Lord God of Israel and His Messiah Yeshua better by serving them?  The most significant aspect about the mitzvot is that we walk in God’s ways so that we can know Him.  This is what the Messiah meant by abiding in Him (John 15:7).  In serving the Lord and walking in His ways, we learn to trust in Him and His enabling power.  This is how we live what the psalmist says, ג   דְּעוּ כִּי יְהֹוָה הוּא אֱלֹהִים הוּא עָשָֹנוּ וְלֹא [וְלוֹ] אֲנַחְנוּ עַמּוֹ וְצֹאן מַרְעִיתוֹ:  100:3 Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. (NASB)  We recognize in our lives that the Lord is the one who is making us and has empowered us to live for Him.  Even in our work, we realize the Lord is the One who gave us the power, or the ability to work to make wealth, and so all glory goes to Him! (Devarim / Deuteronomy 8:18). Read More Here: Tehillim 100-Part1

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
