Shalom on this first day of Tabernacles.
Our study this morning will be from Psalm 119, the longest Psalm and the longest Chapter in The Bible. But also one of the great writings in The Bible.
And our teaching will come from assorted passages in the Psalm.
The underlying theme of Psalm 119 is written in the first verse that reads, BLESSED ARE THE UNDEFILED IN THE WAY WHO WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD.
And that is the title of our message this morning.
BLESSED ARE THE UNDEFILED IN THE WAY WHO WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD.
So with that said, let’s read Psalm 119.1-8 and continue from there.
PSALM 119.1-3 The word Blessed comes from the Hebrew word AH’SHER meaning Blessed and Happy.
Blessed and Happy are the undefiled in the way. Those who do not sin by keeping GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses. Those who walk in The Law of The LORD.
Blessed and Happy are they who keep GOD’S Testimonies, GOD’S Decrees, His Word, His Laws, His Commandments, and His Instructions. And seek The LORD with their whole heart.
Blessed and Happy are they.
THEY ALSO DO NO INIQUITY BECAUSE THEY WALK IN GOD’S WAYS.
PSALM 119.9-11 How shall a young man cleanse his way? That is to say, how shall a young man purify his way?
By taking heed and honoring The LORD according to His Word. The Law of Moses is The Word of GOD. Isaiah 40.8, 1 Peter 1.25
With my whole heart have I sought You.
With my whole heart do I Follow You O LORD, and Worship You.
O let me not wander from your Commandments.
Let me not wander from Your Laws.
Your Word have I hid in my heart. Therefore I do not sin against You O LORD.
PSALM 119.16 I will delight myself in Your Statutes. I will not forget Your Word.
PSALM 119.18 Open my eyes O LORD that I may behold the wonderful things from Your Law.
GOD’S Greatness. His Goodness. GOD’S Perfection and Truth. Without sin. Just and Righteous. His Judgments. All His Ways, all His Decisions are according to His Laws that He gave to Moses for Israel and all mankind.
And His perfect Atonement in Himself, in the Person of The Jewish Messiah Yeshua.
And His Holy Spirit Whom He gives to those who obey Him. Acts 5.32
Blessed are the undefiled in the way who walk in The Law of The LORD.
PSALM 119.21 You have rebuked the proud that are cursed. Who transgress Your Commandments that are written in The Law of Moses.
How serious a statement is that? Those who deceitfully teach that GOD’S Law of Moses is no longer valid. And those who follow that false teaching.
GOD calls those people proud and cursed.
PSALM 119.24 Your Word, Your Laws and Your Instructions are my delight.
They are my Counselors.
PSALM 119.25 My soul cleaves to the dust. Quicken me according to Your Word.
The best way to restore your life when the going gets tough is reading The Word of GOD. The Word of GOD is a miracle worker. Nothing is impossible for The LORD YOUR GOD to heal and cure.
READING GOD’S WORD AND DOING WHAT HE SAYS IS LIFE AND HEALTH.
PSALM 119.28 GOD’S Word strengthens you in every way.
PSALM 119.29-30 When you walk according to GOD’S Law, you distance yourself from lying because you have chosen GOD’S Truths. And the teachings of His Law are before you. When you don’t know GOD’S Instruction or a certain Law, you have The Bible to search it out.
For GOD’S Word and His Truth are everlasting.
PSALM 119.33-37 TEACH ME O LORD THE WAY OF YOUR STATUTES.
The LORD YOUR GOD will teach you when you seek Him with all your heart. He will teach you from His Word, from His Law, from His Prophets, from His Writings, and from The Mouth of your Messiah Yeshua.
Keep GOD’S Word and His Law to the end.
Yet we have no end for our life is eternal.
And GOD will give you understanding when you keep His Law, and observe to do it with your whole heart.
He will cause you to go in the path of Righteousness according to His Commandments. For in GOD’S Word is your delight.
So incline your ear to GOD’S Teachings and avoid covetousness. Turn away from vanity. Things that are useless, evil and destructive, false, and vain. And make yourself alive in GOD’S Way. And allow GOD to establish His Word in your heart. How? By doing every Word that GOD speaks.
And fear The LORD. That is the beginning of knowledge, wisdom and understanding. And the path Away from sin.
PSALM 119.44-48 So shall I keep Your Law continually and forever.
There is no better counsel than that for a Blessed and Happy life. Then you will walk at liberty from sin and death when you seek GOD’S Laws and His Teachings with all your heart.
And you will speak of GOD’S Word and His Laws before kings and not be ashamed, but happy.
And you will delight in GOD’S Commandments which you love. You will even lift up your hands to GOD’S Commandments, and meditate on His Statutes.
PSALM 119.49, 50, 53 GOD’S Word is His Promise.
GOD’S Word is your Hope, and your Comfort in affliction.
GOD’S Word restores your life.
But horror, even indignation that is offensive and insulting take hold on us because the wicked who are the ungodly are wrong. They forsake GOD’S Law.
PSALM 119.59, 63 I thought on my ways, but I turned my feet to GOD’S Ways. And now I am a companion of all them that fear The LORD and obey Him.
PSALM 119.65, 67, 72 You have dealt well with your servant, O LORD according to Your Word and according to Your Promises.
A servant obeys his Master.
Before I was afflicted, that is to say, before I was humble and obedient to You, O LORD, I went astray. But now I have kept Your Word.
The Law of Your Mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver.
PSALM 119.77 Let Your tender mercies come to me that I may live. For Your Law is my delight.
GOD’S tender mercies and His Law walk hand in hand.
PSALM 119.81 My soul longs for Your Salvation, Your Yeshua. But I hope in Your Word.
Do you know that Messiah Yeshua is The Word, and Your Salvation? Isaiah 9.5, Christian Bible Isaiah 9.6
PSALM 119.89-93, 96 Forever O LORD, Your Word is settled in Heaven. Forever O LORD, Your Word is fixed and established in Heaven.
GOD’S Word never changes. Nor will GOD’S Word ever end.
GOD’S Word extends everywhere.
How foolish are those who believe that Jesus ended The Law.
The jesus that causes people to reject The Law is another jesus. Not the Jesus of the Bible. 2 Corinthians 11.4
Messiah Yeshua gave The Law to Moses Face to face in The Tabernacle, in the Holy Of Holies. Exodus 25.21-22
Forever O LORD, Your Word is settled in Heaven.
Everything in Heaven and earth are under GOD’S authority and continue according to His Laws.
And unless GOD’S Laws had been my delights, I would have perished in my afflictions, in my depression, my misery, and in my troubles.
But I will never forget your Teachings and Your Laws, O LORD, for with them I have Life.
PSALM 119.105, 112 Your Word, Your Promises, and Your Laws, are a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
They are The Way of Life. Pleasing to GOD in His sight.
And I am resolved to follow them forever.
PSALM 119.114, 118, 120 You are my hiding place, O LORD MY GOD, My Shield and My Protection.
I hope in Your Word. My trust is in You O LORD GOD.
You reject them that stray from Your Laws, for those who reject Your Laws are false and deceitful.
Tough words to those who teach that GOD’S Laws have been abolished.
GOD rejects those who reject His Law.
Why would anybody believe that GOD’S Laws are no longer valid?
That is a lie from satan that began in the Garden of Eden.
If they trembled with the Fear of GOD, and were Afraid of GOD’S Judgments, they would walk in GOD’S Ways, and keep His Commandments and His Laws that GOD commands them to do for their good.
But now they are cursed. See Verse 21.
PSALM 119.130, 136 The entrance of GOD’S Word into our heart gives light.
GOD’S Word gives understanding, wisdom and life. His Word teaches obedience to The GOD of Creation for our good.
And the writer is sad because so many reject GOD’S Law of Moses. They unfortunately are taught by man’s teachings to spurn GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses. How sad is that?
PSALM 119.137, 138, 142 But GOD is Righteous.
He lives His Life according to His Laws. His Laws that He gave to Moses.
Everything about GOD is Righteous and Right. His Laws and Instructions are Righteous and Faithful. They are reliable and can be trusted.
GOD’S Righteousness is an Everlasting Righteousness.
AND HIS LAW IS TRUTH.
PSALM 119.151, 152 GOD is near us, even in us.
All GOD’S Commandments are Truth. There is no lie in them.
If Truth is eliminated, what remains?
But GOD’S Laws are forever.
PSALM 119.155 How often is this passage taught?
Salvation is far from the wicked for they do not seek Your Laws.
PSALM 119.163, 165 I hate and abhor lying, but I love Your Law.
Verse 165 is a promise you must remember forever. Great peace have they which love Your Law and nothing shall offend them. Nothing will cause you to fall.
PSALM 119.172, 174 I will always speak of Your Word O LORD, for all Your Commandments are Righteous.
I HAVE LONGED FOR YOUR SALVATION O LORD.
I HAVE LONGED FOR YOUR MESSIAH YESHUA O LORD.
AND YOUR LAW IS MY DELIGHT.
FOR BLESSED ARE THE UNDEFILED IN THE WAY WHO WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD.
AND LET THE FAMILY OF GOD SAY AMEN.
