YOUR TORAH IS MY DELIGHT

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue in Psalm 119 from verses 169-176.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, YOUR TORAH IS MY DELIGHT.

And with that said, let’s read Psalm 119.169-176.

PSALM 119.169  LET MY CRY COME NEAR BEFORE YOU, O LORD.  GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THIS WORD CRY IN HEBREW IS RE’NAH THAT MEANS A PRAYERFUL PLEA.  THE WRITER OF PSALM 119 CRIED OUT TO GOD IN PRAYER FOR UNDERSTANDING OF HIS WORD.

UNDERSTANDING IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE WHEN READING THE BIBLE, AND STUDYING THE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD.  IT TAKES TIME AND EFFORT.  IT TAKES OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  KNOWING THAT GOD’S WORD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

IT IS KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.  BUT VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW THE REASONS WHY GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

GOD TEACHES IN THE BIBLE THAT HE CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE A HOLY PEOPLE, AND A SPECIAL PEOPLE TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AND BECAUSE GOD LOVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS WITNESSES TO THE WORLD, TO KNOW AND BELIEVE GOD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS GOD.  BEFORE HIM THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED.  NEITHER WILL THERE BE ANOTHER GOD AFTER HIM.

AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO KNOW, AND BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS THE LORD, AND BESIDE HIM THERE IS NO SAVIOR.

THAT IS AN EXTRAORDINARY HONOR THAT GOD HAS PLACED UPON THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND A MINISTRY TO BE CHERISHED.

GOD FOR THE MOST PART SPOKE EXCLUSIVELY TO JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, THROUGHOUT THE OLD AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.

AND JEWISH PEOPLE RECORDED EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

AND EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS FOR JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY. 

GOD IS THE GOD OF EVERY HUMAN BEING.  AND GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW AND ONE TEACHING.  AND THAT ONE LAW AND ONE TEACHING IS EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

LET’S READ DEUTERONOMY 7.6-15  THESE WORDS ARE NOT ONLY FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, BUT FOR EVERYONE WHO REPENTS AND TURNS TO GOD AND LIVES BY EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  EZEKIEL 18.21

AND ISAIAH 43.10-11.  GOD SAID TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGH THE JEWISH PROPHET ISAIAH, YOU ARE MY WITNESSES, SAITH THE LORD, AND MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN THAT YOU SHALL KNOW AND BELIEVE ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

TO KNOW GOD, YOU MUST KNOW THAT GOD IS GOD, AND THERE ARE NO OTHER GODS BESIDE HIM.  YOU MUST RECOGNIZE THAT GOD IS A GOD OF TRUTH.  THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS TRUTH.  THAT IS TO SAY, YOU MUST AGREE WITH EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE AS OPPOSED BY WHAT YOU HEAR FROM MAN.

TO BELIEVE GOD IS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD.

AND TO UNDERSTAND GOD, YOU MUST KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE NOT DIFFICULT.  

GOD SAYS THROUGH THE PROPHET IN ISAIAH 43.11, I EVEN I AM THE LORD AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO SAVIOR.

THE HEBREW FOR I EVEN I AM THE LORD IS, AH’NO’KHI AH’NO’KHI YEHOVAH.

AH’NO’KHI AH’NO’KHI  YEHOVAH MEANS I AM, I AM THE LORD.

GOD IS SPECIFIC BY SAYING, I AM, I AM THE LORD AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO SAVIOR.  MEANING, MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD AND SAVIOR, IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE FATHER.

AS A WITNESS FOR THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH, YOU MUST KNOW, AND BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS TRUTH, TO BE OBEYED.  YOU MUST AGREE WITH, AND OBEY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND MESSIAH YESHUA, THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 40.8, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, 1 PETER 1.23-25, 1 JOHN 5.3

THEREFORE THE TRUE WITNESS OF GOD MUST KNOW, BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.  THAT THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods, JESUS BEING THE SECOND god IN THE GODHEAD IS IDOLATRY AND BELIEF IN MANY gods.  BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  IT IS WRITTEN.

AND THE TRUE WITNESS OF GOD MUST KNOW, BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT EVERYONE INCLUDING YOURSELF MUST LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WHICH IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  AND ATONEMENT IS REQUIRED THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT IS BEING A WITNESS FOR GOD.

PSALM 119.170  LET MY SUPPLICATION COME BEFORE YOU.  DELIVER ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THE WORD SUPPLICATION MEANS BEING VERY HUMBLE WHEN COMING TO THE LORD IN PRAYER AND ASKING HIM FOR SOMETHING.

SO THE WRITER IS ASKING THE LORD IN PRAYER, LET MY SUPPLICATION COME BEFORE YOU.  DELIVER ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THE WORDS DELIVER ME IN HEBREW IS HA’STEE’LAY’NEE THAT MEANS DEFEND ME, RESCUE ME, SAVE ME, AND DELIVER ME.

WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE GOSPEL OF GOD.

YOU ARE A HOLY PERSON UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE SPECIAL TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH BECAUSE THE LORD YOUR GOD LOVES YOU.

AND YOU KNOW AND BELIEVE GOD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS GOD AND THERE ARE NO OTHER GODS BESIDE HIM.  THAT HE IS THE LORD, AND BESIDE HIM THERE IS NO SAVIOR.  THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE FATHER, THE ONE AND ONLY GOD, YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR.

THEREFORE WHEN YOU GO TO THE LORD IN PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION, YOU CAN EXPECT THAT GOD WILL ALWAYS DELIVER YOU FROM WHATEVER DELIVERANCE YOU ARE ASKING HIM FOR.  BECAUSE YOUR LIFE IS BOUND IN THE LORD YOUR GOD.

HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

PSALM 119.171  MY LIPS SHALL UTTER PRAISE WHEN YOU HAVE TAUGHT ME YOUR STATUTES.

AGAIN, STATUTES IN HEBREW IS KHU’KEEM MEANING GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, HIS DECREES AND HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE IS GOD’S COMMANDMENT, HIS DECREE, AND HIS LAW.

AND WHEN GOD TEACHES YOU HIS STATUTES, AND GOD WILL TEACH YOU HIS STATUTES WHEN YOU DILIGENTLY SEARCH FOR UNDERSTANDING FROM THE BIBLE AND NOT FROM MAN, YOU WILL PRAISE THE LORD.

PSALM 119.172  MY TONGUE SHALL SPEAK OF YOUR WORD, FOR ALL YOUR COMMANDMENTS ARE RIGHTEOUSNESS.

AGAIN, THE WORD RIGHTEOUSNESS IN HEBREW IS STEH’DEHK MEANING RIGHT.  GOD’S COMMANDMENTS ARE RIGHT.  THEY ARE TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

COMMANDMENTS IN HEBREW, AS IN ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, IS MEETZ’VOTE MEANING EVERY COMMANDMENT OF GOD IN THE BIBLE IS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND LAW, TEACHING AND DOCTRINE.

THEREFORE KNOWING, BELIEVING, AND UNDERSTANDING GOD IS OBEYING EVERY COMMANDMENT OF GOD IN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT.

PSALM 119.173  LET YOUR HAND HELP ME, FOR I HAVE CHOSEN YOUR PRECEPTS.

BECAUSE YOU ARE LIVING BY EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, AND YOU HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE GOSPEL OF GOD.

THEREFORE THE HAND OF GOD IS ALWAYS UPON YOU TO HELP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY BECAUSE YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO GOD’S PRECEPTS.  ACCORDING TO EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

PSALM 119.174  I HAVE LONGED FOR YOUR SALVATION, O LORD.  AND YOUR LAW, THAT IS, YOUR TORAH IS MY DELIGHT.

LET’S LOOK AT HEBREWS 6.1.  THEREFORE LEAVING THE PRINCIPLES OF THE DOCTRINE OF MESSIAH.  I LIKE HOW THE COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE DESCRIBES THE PRINCIPLES OF THE DOCTRINE OF MESSIAH, AS THE INITIAL LESSONS ABOUT THE MESSIAH.

I BELIEVE THE INITIAL LESSONS ABOUT THE MESSIAH TAUGHT IN THE CHURCH IS THIS.  JESUS DIED FOR YOUR SINS, WAS RAISED AGAIN THE THIRD DAY.  BELIEVE THAT AND YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

WELL, THERE’S A WHOLE LOT MORE TO IT THAN THAT.  THE OLD TESTAMENT IS STILL VERY MUCH PART OF THE BIBLE AND WILL ALWAYS BE VERY MUCH PART OF THE BIBLE.  IN FACT THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE BIBLE.  THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE.  NO ONE CAN ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR CAN ANYONE SUPPLANT THE OLD TESTAMENT. 

ISAIAH 40.8, MALACHI 3.6, 1 PETER 1.23-25

BUT LET’S CONTINUE WITH THE VERSE.  THEREFORE LEAVING BEHIND THE INITIAL LESSONS ABOUT THE MESSIAH, LET US GO ON TO PERFECTION, NOT LAYING AGAIN THE FOUNDATION OF REPENTANCE FROM DEAD WORKS.  DEAD WORKS ARE SIN.  SIN IS DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND OF FAITH TOWARD GOD.

FAITH IN GOD IS BELIEF AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD.

GOING ON TO PERFECTION IS BEING PERFECT IN THE EYES OF GOD BY WALKING IN HIS STATUTES, KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS, ALL GOD’S LAWS, AND TEACHINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE POINT I’M MAKING HERE FROM THE WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE IS THAT SALVATION, ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH A GOOD AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, COMES FROM LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL YOUR SINS.

AND WHEN YOU MESS UP, CONFESS YOUR SINS TO THE LORD BECAUSE HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE YOU YOUR SINS, AND CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

HEBREWS 13.20-21, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 CHRONICLES 29.19, JOB 1.1, 8, PSALM 37.37

WE ALL LONG FOR GOD’S SALVATION, BUT GOD’S TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES MUST BE YOUR DELIGHT.

PSALM 119.175-176  LET MY SOUL LIVE, AND IT SHALL PRAISE YOU.

I HAVE GONE ASTRAY LIKE A LOST SHEEP.  SEEK YOUR SERVANT FOR I DO NOT FORGET YOUR COMMANDMENTS.

YOU ARE THE CHOSEN OF GOD, HOLY UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD BECAUSE YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND YOU HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  BECAUSE GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE SPECIAL TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.  AND THE LORD LOVES YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE. 

YOU NEVER FORGET HIS COMMANDMENTS.

THEREFORE DO NOT EVER GO ASTRAY, BECAUSE THE LORD YOUR GOD LOVES YOU, AND REQUIRES YOU TO CONTINUE TO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, HIS TORAH FOREVER WITH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  FOR HE IS YOUR LIFE.

DEUTERONOMY 7.9, JEREMIAH 31.3
