From Here... As Found in the Bible
by Major Stephen Court

This might be pedantic.  And / or it might be prophetic.  Let’s give a look at every single appearance of ‘From Here’ in the Bible (we only have ‘around’ 400 words so we’re using NIV only, not every English translation).


Genesis 37:17. “They have moved on from here.” 

Joseph is on a mission from his father to check on his brothers, who were grazing sheep and stewing about how to ‘get’ him. 


Exodus 11:1. “I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. After that, he will let you go from here.”

Egypt was a place of bondage.


Exodus 33:15. “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”

That’s how dear His Presence is.


Deuteronomy 9:12. “The Lord told me, ‘Go down from here at once, because your people whom you brought out of Egypt have become corrupt.”

Woah - the tension between Exodus 33:15 and Deuteronomy 9:12!  We have to listen to the Lord carefully. 


Ruth 2:8. “So Boaz said to Ruth, ‘My daughter, listen to me. Don’t go and glean in another field and don’t go away from here. Stay here with the women who work for me.”

‘Here’ in this instance was a place of protection and provision, acceptance and belonging.


1 Samuel 6:20. “And the people of Beth Shemesh asked, ‘Who can stand in the presence of the Lord, this holy God? To whom will the ark go up from here?”

This whole episode underlines the utter holiness of God. 


Jeremiah 28:3. “Within two years I will bring back to this place all the articles of the Lord’s house that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon removed from here and took to Babylon.”

‘From Here’ refers to the Lord’s House.  The prophecy itself was from Hananiah, and it was refuted by Jeremiah.


Jeremiah 38:10. “Then the king commanded Ebed-Melek the Cushite, ‘Take thirty men from here with you and lift Jeremiah the prophet out of the cistern before he dies.”

‘From Here’ – the Benjamin Gate - becomes the source of deliverance for Jeremiah.


Matthew 17:20. “He replied, ‘Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

‘Move from here to there.’  This is not a static faith.  It is a movement.


Luke 4:9. “The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. ‘If you are the Son of God,’ he said, ‘throw yourself down from here.”

This is one of the classic temptations of Jesus.


Luke 16:26. “And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.”

There are eternal consequences for the way we live our lives.
