Psalm 119: To love the law is to love Messiah - Part 2 - Study
 
We are ready to begin the study portion for today's broadcast, we spoke last week, we went through some important verses there in Psalms 119. And examined them in light of an understanding that
Yahushua is the living word that dwelt among us
became flesh John 1:14. And we gonna continue our journey through Psalms 119, I'm not going to suggest that we're going to read the entire chapter but we are going to read through the first part and some key verses as we go through a lot down the line here. So our study portion title of course is Psalm 119 to love the law is to love Messiah. That's because he is an illustration of what it is like for one to keep the law of Yahweh, and so if we love the law Yahweh, what we are doing when we read the law of Yahweh we're reading how Yahushua lived his life. And that's something that we should find fascinating as we like they have more than just Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to explain to us how Yahushua lived. Well all we going to do is open up the books of Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus, Deuteronomy and you'll find out other ways, other things that he did, if you study in depth and have a correct understanding of what it is that your reading. So that's the blessing that we're talking about and that's what we want to continue discussing today as we examine this important chapter of scripture. I once read a story where there was a young believer in a typical everyday traditional Christian church. And that pastor was concerned about the young man who was asking many questions out of the Old Testament. And he says the Pastor told him you need to focus on the New Testament and not read the Old Testament, you get confused. And you can read the Psalms and the Proverbs. So the young believer opened up the Psalms and say well here's a nice big one Psalms 119. Of course, that's directing him back to the rest of scripture and but the topic of interest Psalms 119. And I recognized, number one, the law cannot save me, it cannot save you; we are completely hopeless
unless it is the Messiah Yahushua died for our
sins. It is his righteousness that saves me, it is not my own righteousness he says, it is not my law keeping that will save me on that final day, it'll be Yahushua's was law keeping, his Torah observance that saves me. So I want to get that out of the way, I love Psalms 119 because it's a wonderful Psalms, it has a lot to instruct us if we put it under a microscope and kind of deep sea diver maybe as we examine some of the principles and things that are being taught. But if you're just interested in going in the in-depth study and just reading the principles involved and things like that, this is what Psalms 119 is all about. What's the law really all about? It's all about love; every commandment given in the law is about loving our Heavenly Father and loving each other. And so how could you say there's something wrong with learning how to love? Learning the different ways our Heavenly Father wants us to love each other and the different ways he desires to be loved in his love language. But it really is the law really is about love and so he could just as easily say I believe in love as saying I believe in observing the Torah. The word Torah is the Hebrew word for Law. Actually it means teaching an instruction, that's only mean law. But our Heavenly father didn't give specific instructions of what it means to love, he could have just said tell you whatever he wants, just love each other, and love me and we'll get along fine. But then the problem is, everybody has their own idea what that really means, some might say well you know adultery is love. Some might say well, you can tell a lie in this situation, its love. Other people may feel that murderers even love if they're murdering their own baby, in their womb; they think the baby won't have to live in this terrible world. But you see we need clarification and that's why we read the scriptures to get clarification on what it really means to love each other. And today we have confusion on a grand scale of how to live our lives and what we have in front of us is the law of Yahweh to teach us exactly what true love is from the perspective of the wisest and powerful, all knowing, all seeing entity in the universe Yahweh our Heavenly Father. And so if we would simply submit to his statutes, his ordinances, his commandments then we will learn and have clarification on what it literally means to walk in love; have that clarity and we would justify him rather ourselves. Or what everyone else thinks love is we can just look at him and he will give us the answer. Well our first text picking up where we left off with my whole heart I have sought you, or let me not wander from your commandments. We talked a little bit last week because once we seek Yahweh with a whole heart. There is a danger at some point we get a little lax or to wander away. And to wander from the commandments is to wander from the voice of the great shepherd. Yahushua says my sheep know my voice, and so we need to attend to and continually be aware of what our Good Shepherd is speaking and he speaks to us spiritually through the Holy Spirit. He also speaks to us in the Holy Word of Yahweh which is also the words of the Holy Spirit. It's all the words of the Holy Spirit whether it's in Deuteronomy or whether it's in Psalms or whether it's in Matthew, Mark, Luke or John or first Timothy or James or Revelation or wherever. It's all breathed by the Holy Spirit, spoken through men. But we're like sheep, we know, the flocks going one way and Yahushua is calling us one way, we see something really really interesting over there some unique kind of wee to grab a hold of him, some kind of little delicate flower or something tastes really good. And the delicacies of the wicked pretty much and other things that we don't know will be harmful and toxic to our bodies but the shepherd knows to keep us away from those toxic things. And he will come and find us and if we're willing he will take us back home. And that's the goal, is to be ultimately in his house forever to be his flock forever and we need to be willing to listen to his voice and not wander from those commands. And he will, he will as long as we say I want to remain with you Yahushua, I'm sorry and go back into the flock. And if we say, I don't want you a leader in my life, I don't want to listen to other people and what they have to say. Then that's where we find ourselves in danger just like we have children sometimes teenager age children tend to look at their friends sometimes and see what their friends are doing and say hey how come I'm not doing that? And even though we know it's harmful you know they want to do other people are saying and we know what's good for them and and and they don't want to do that, they want to do what others are doing and we are the same way as the Heavenly Father in heaven we look at the way other people are doing and we get envious and we end up being tempted to do the things they're doing and we don't want to do that. We want to stay close and keep our eyes on Yahushua, now Yahushua uses us as instruments to be our shepherds arms, to be our shepherd's voice, to bring people back into the flock especially for not listening to him, speaking into their conscience that he can use us to go and bring someone who's wandering away from the commandments. James chapter 5 verse 19 says; Brother, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back; Let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. And so that's our thought, I hope that people will understand we desire to walk in the lobby, we don't want to be a people who are a sinning people and we see someone transgressing the law and they're wandering away from the truth because the law of Yahweh is the truth. John 17:17; your word is the truth, and and we want to save them from death, we that we love them. I think too often some of us might have a tendency we see someone wandering away from the truth and we'll just, we'll go O, that's just too bad; look at them they're kinda, they're falling away and it's it's really awful and I'll pray for them. And then we don't go to them, we don't look for them, we don't call them, we don't say anything to them and we just kinda too content to let him go. And they'll be wondering too, where is everybody; you know I thought they cared about me, they see me going the wrong way, I know I'm going the wrong way; but no one 's coming over to strengthen me into you know; put their arm around me and say hey you're going the wrong way. They think, or they guess nobody really cares and then that's even greater temptation. nd so we need to be the kind of people who are willing to care about someone who is wandering away from what he knows is right night, we all know is right and it's part of love, it's part of what love really is; saving others souls from death. And so, if their attitudes are well you know I don't care about the commands anymore and I don't care about my multitude of sins and well I guess you know; we do our best to turn back to the good shepherd. But if they don't wanna listen there's little we can do from there except to pray that Yahweh will give them proper discipline and they'll see the error of their way. So anyway we see the Psalmist saying; crying out let me not wander from your commandments. He knows that's his tendency to do that and that's where eyes look a lot of times. If our eyes are on the straight and narrow then we will go where our eyes tend to lead us and so the Proverb says let your eyes look straight ahead, let your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, that all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or to the left: remove your foot from evil. Focus on where you're going, look we are going to son, look where you're going to daughter, pay attention. You ever heard that from a parents? Hey, look out, look where you're going. Driving down the road, most accidents maybe the majority because people don't look where they're going. They're not pondering the path of their vehicle and if you ponder the path your vehicle you less likely to get smashed into something ahead of you. And so we gotta ponder the path of our feet spiritually, where are we going, where are our eyes? Scripture says that hell and destruction are grave and destruction never full. So the eyes of men are never satisfied. So you're you're a sheep you're looking at that little delicacy over there and you're thinking about wandering over there away from the shepherd and going that direction, don't do it. It's only going to do you harm in the end, it's gonna harm you. So it says let all your ways be established, all your ways be established, do not turn to the right to left so go straight ahead. There are two religions out there I see, one is on the right, one is on the left. One is Judaism in its mainstream form and its traditional form. One is Christianity and its traditional form. And they're both, they've strayed from the straight and narrow. And the path is right down in the middle in between them we have to embrace the commandments of Elohim and the faith of Yahushua. Revelation 14:12 it was the patience of the saints and so don't turn to the right, don't turn the left and it's right down the middle of the baggage of either religion, traditions of men are both religions which are vain and unprofitable beware of this. So look straight ahead, remove your foot from evil; it's where we look, it's where our eyes are. If your eye is good then the rest of you is good, so where are your eyes looking? If you know, You've ever driven a vehicle and the cars got their brights in the opposite direction? You know if you don't look at the bright lights, you just look directly at the road you won't be blinded by it. Tend to drive toward where you're looking at. And if you look at the bright lights they say you tend to steer wherever you're looking and so don't look at the bright lights, look at the road, look at them the fog line alongside the road. So wherever you're looking pay attention because there are 1000 sheep in your face going the wrong direction. But our Heavenly Father and Yahushua are all saying, come my way, come to my direction they're all traveling the wrong way. And so we say excuse me I'm going a different direction because at the end of where you're going there's a cliff. And I have a different shepherd I'm in a different flock. And call them as they're passing along the way to make a U-turn and follow a different flock. And so how do we keep our eyes where they need to be? Scripture says this Colossians 3:1; If you're raised with Messiah, seek those things which are above, where Messiah is. Sitting at the right hand of Elohim, set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, (do you know that you died?) You died, and your life is hidden with Messiah in Elohim. So it's no longer you living, Yahushua living in you, so set your mind on things where he is, where Messiah is, things above, spiritual things. Be spiritually minded is life and peace to be carnally minded is only death and destruction. So focus on spiritual things on the shepherd and if the shepherd comes don't run away from him, let him take you up in his arms, carry you in his bosom and bring you back to where you belong in the flock. Psalms 119 verse 10-11 says; With my whole heart I have sort you: Let me not wander from your commandments. Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against you. That's actually a popular song in Christian circles you know to sing this "your word have I hid in my heart". Well, that word is being spoken of is the Torah, are the commandments of our Heavenly Father Yahweh. The whole thing this Psalms is talking about is the law that was given through Moses, or Moshe in Hebrew. And so having Yahweh's word placed right here in the heart, if we can put Yahweh's word right there in our hearts. It will have a way of empowering us to not sin against him, when the word is placed in our hearts. And gives us therefore the power to be overcomers and so this is one thing that a lot of people think it's only a New Testament concept. All his words in our heart now and you know back then you know he was only concerned with the external things and the things that were on the outside and how you conducted yourself on the outside. Well that was true while Yahushua just blasting the Scribes and Pharisees for only washing the outside of the cup not the inside. He was always concerned about the heart, in fact circumcision of the heart is already written in the Old Testament in the Torah, the book Deuteronomy talks about that and in fact the book of Deuteronomy talks about the word of Yahweh being in our hearts. Deuteronomy chapter 30 Verse 11 says; for this commandment which I command you today, it is not too mysterious for you (not too mysterious for you), nor is it a far off. It is not in heaven, but you should say who ascended to heaven, for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it, and do it? Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, who will go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, that we may hear it, and do it? So where is this commandment, where is it? The word is very near you, in your mouth, in your heart, that you may do it. So that's the key, having Yahweh's word in our mouth and in our hearts, you know what?
They did a study I think about a year ago of adults

who remained in the faith as children, from the time
they were children they did not depart from the faith; they did not go often to the world. They remained in the faith and they try to figure out what was the big thing that made the difference. And you know what it was? It was the family gathered on a regular basis sat down and read the scriptures. That was the most common reason, you know and the word became and came indwelt into the hearts of the children and they were able to do it. That's why he says to teach them when you rise up, when you lie down. He plants the word in there and lets the word do its work. So anyway now, Paul quotes this verse in the book of
Romans chapter 10 verse 6 as a righteousness of
faith, speaks in this way; Do not say in your heart who ascended to heaven. That's to bring Messiah down from above. Do you see how he is correlating the word, the Torah with the Messiah. So the words being spoken of here, he says this commandment which I command you today talking about the commandments in the Torah. This whole book of Deuteronomy is a summary of the the whole law that was given, okay. So the word is very near you, the word very near you, it says do not say your heart who will ascend into heaven that's to bring Messiah down from above, the word or the Messiah one and the same down from above; or who will descend into the abyss that is to bring Messiah up from the dead but what does this say the word is near you in your mouth and in your heart; that is the word of faith which we preach. In other words, they are preaching Torah! And they are preaching Messiah and the faith in him. It's all one and the same. So it is a beautiful concept here if you really examine this closely. The law is the word of faith that was being preached. It's all Yahweh's teaching, even the gospel, the teaching of the gospel, the good news of Yahushua is a part of Yahweh's teaching, it's a part of his law, it's a part of what he has to say to us and how we need to put our faith in him is actually commandment. We're keeping a commandment by putting our faith in Yahushua for the forgiveness of sin. And so it's all interwoven, it's all together and so we confess with our mouth the Master Yahushua. We confess with the mouth the Master Yahushua and believe in our heart Elohim raised him from the dead, we will be saved for with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. It is our faith in Yahushua ultimately that saves us but our faith in Yahushua is not without works, it's not without some kind of repentance that should be it naturally attached to that. So Yahweh's goal is to bring his word from point A to point B, from his mouth to our hearts and the actual teaching of the new covenant is this; behold the days are coming says Yahweh when I'll make a new covenant, with the house of Israel, with the house of Judah. I find it interesting no gentiles mentioned here but we become Israel, we become Judah when we become a part of the body of the Messiah, he was an Israelite. Not according to the covenant I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; my covenant they broke, although I was a husband to them, says Yahweh. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; (once again) After those days says Yahweh, I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. He did it once before okay but this is a unique manifestation, what makes it unique is he's doing it through the Messiah Yahushua: when the Messiah Yahushua dwells in our hearts that is actually
the word that became flesh and dwelt among us.
That is the word that is being put in our hearts, he is the living word, he is being put in our hearts and because he is there he cleanses our hearts so that we can be seen as a righteous before heavenly father; our sins are no longer remembered. And so we have the word of Yahweh in our heart when we embrace the new covenant and we accept the Messiah's indwelling and we can be sure that since the Messiah lives in us and that means the living Torah, the living law of Yahweh is now dwelling in us and therefore it's going to reflect on the outer layer through obedience to it because of his indwelling he is the one directing us away from lawbreaking and into keeping the words of Yahweh. So when the Psalmist says your word I've had in my heart, that's wonderful. But it is ultimately Yahweh's doing that brings the word into our heart. We're people that we are prone to forgetting you know, we tend to forget what Yahweh's word is said. We're forgetful people but we do have Yahweh's spirit to remind us of the word if we're willing to listen. You see the shepherds always leading, that's never a question. It's whether we're listening. The holy spirit's always leading, the only question is whether we are listening and if we are listening then we will gain his leadership if we care to listen to him; we'll be led impasse of righteousness. No doubt, we pursue wisdom, in what wisdom? He will teach us. In fact, it says Yahushua said to the disciples I have anything to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However when he the Holy Spirit, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he will not speak on his own authority; but whatever he hears, he will speak: and he will tell the things to come. So the Holy Spirit will speak to us and will give us the truth and will guide us into all truth, his word is truth John 17:17. He is the word in Genesis, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, the Psalms, the Proverbs, Isaiah, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Paul's letters all of it; it's all Yahweh's words. And so the work of the spirit is to guide us into all truth, that's the work of the spirit. And because whether we follow that leading is up to us. But he will teach us the Torah by a spirit and the goal that Yahweh has is not to just keep cleansing us over and over again for our sins. His goal is that we would walk out, our repentance and bear fruits worthy of that repentance and that we would stop sinning; we turn away from sin and what is a sin according to 1 John 3:4? Whoever commits sin transgresses also the law for sin is the transgression of the law, King James version. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise Yahweh's word is not a mixed message. It's all about love, it's all about love, but when we read a commandment to do something for instance the Sabbath day. To honor the Sabbath and to remember to keep it holy, that is an expression of love toward our Heavenly Father. And if our earthly Fathers say, say our earthly father gave us a gift. It had been handed down from generation to generation, we don't know how long, but it'll be given to us and we took that gift; will it be loving to our earthly father if we took that gift and said well I'm a smash on the ground step all over in this regard it? Certainly not, our heavenly father has given us the gift of the Sabbath, so the Sabbath was made for man. And so if the Sabbath was made for man and we ignore it we're ignoring a gift he is offering to us, it's not something we want to trample on and treat like a common everyday thing. Recall remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy and that's an expression of love toward our heavenly father. If you look at the 10 commandments, the first four, maybe the fifth one on how we love him. But no other Elohim before him, don't make an idol and bow down to it, don't take his name in vain and remember the Sabbath day in the fifth commandment is that we would honor our heavenly father or earthly father and mother. So, but for some reason people don't see those commands as expressions of love anymore.
I was looking at a video by man Kandovan, has
remarkable, very good points about creationism versus evolution some pretty good strong, strong
points.
But he's completely lost when it comes to Sabbath because someone asked the question about the Sabbath and he said Sabbath wasn't even kept the first 3500 years, and something like that. And I thought well okay Yahweh set apart man holy and then he said yeah you don't have to be holy like me, you don't have to walk in my image. You can do what you want, you know the very first day after Adam was created Yahweh rested, Adam would have seen that and what would he have done if he was created in Yahweh's image? He would have walked it out now he said there's no commandment you know before the Torah was given to keep the Sabbath that means that you know people could commit to all kind of things that weren't really commanded, could they commit adultery, could they commit lying, could they dishonor their parents, could they cover their neighbors possessions? there's no commandment there about those things in the book of Genesis. There is no commandment, that you have to respect Yahweh's name or in fact there is no commandment in the book of Genesis that you're not allowed to worship other deities. You're allowed, the 10 commandments are not mentioned and you know prior to the giving of the Torah, the giving of the 10 commandments. And so as we say the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, just because it's not mentioned doesn't mean it wasn't there. And you know that's a big mistake, if you take that principle and carry it out, what could happen to you? But anyway through progressive revelation we know, we learned that the Sabbath is important and I'd hope that you would if you haven't looked at this, reexamining. It's one of 10 commandments and if we choose to transgress his law it's simple as this, you're sinning, it's that simple. And so Kandovan, while he has very good points about creationism, he's been confronted about the Sabbath and this point is not persuaded as a sin, among other things. So if you find yourself in transgression of the law any point that means we're lacking in love somewhere. Somehow we're lacking in love, and so we make it our mantra call that we are rotten sinners and we've been saved from death and that's important. But we're not supposed to be walking rottenness anymore. We are supposed to be living the way Yahushua lived, anything other than that is simply not loved. If you're not living as he did, you're falling in love in some way, you need to keep the Sabbath day.
ut whoever wrote this Psalms obviously loved
Yahweh's law. He just begged Yahweh to teach him. He longed for the commandments. Do we do that? Blessed are you Yahweh, teach me your statutes with my lips I have declared all the judgments of your mouth. We're called to do and to teach them. As we cry out to Yahweh, will you please teach me your commandments please show me anyway it means not pleasing to you. I don't want to listen to the other people who tell me not to do your commandments.
I want to listen to you Father Yahweh, teach me
your statutes, teach me your word, and he will.
You long hear the shepherd's voice, it's
right there in the holy word. Yahweh wants to place his word in the heart, that's a promise of the new covenant. With my lips I have declared all the judgments of your mouth. Why? Why is he declaring it? Because, the word of Yahweh is hidden in his heart. Luke 6:45 says; A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. And why do you call me, Master, Master, but not do the things that I say?
So the word was in his heart and therefore he
just had to declare them. You know when we first hear about the good thing that Yahweh has taught us about the keeping the commandments and why it's important and all that we just you know we felt our heart with his word and we want to do is go out and tell everybody. And that's part of why because the word now, it's a new thing, it's in our heart and we want to express the things that are in our hearts, but we do need to get good grounded; grounded very well because sometimes, you know I was saying last night; in a gathering it's like we get this new shiny new sword we're looking at it we're like wow look at that you know and then we don't know how to handle it correctly and 85 pounds you know or cutting people with it. You're going to make sure we handle it lawfully, law is good if you handle it lawfully. So if we have a law in our hearts, handle it lawfully. But you know what's in our heart, our mouth, it is going to eventually come out somewhere. The scripture says no man can tame the tongue it's an unruly evil full of deadly poison. So you gotta put Yahweh's word in your heart and not just the part of the word that says do this and do that but also walks in love. Use the law lawfully, walk in patience, walk in and the long-suffering. And so with that law you have to use it lawfully. And so we treasure it, we treasure the word. Psalms 119:14 I've rejoiced in the way of your testimonies as much as in all riches. You know the people that win the lottery they often rejoice, that they've got all these riches, they got all this money now. You know in the Psalmist here is rejoicing in Yahweh's testimony as if he just won the lottery.
Think about that, to have understanding, love
Yahweh's ways are spiritually speaking the true riches that will never perish. And those that win the lotteries, with those that gain earthly riches they'll say that everything they have will perish with them. Ecclesiastes 5:15; As he came from his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and he shall take nothing from his labor, which he may carry away in his hand (can't take it with you). But if you gain wisdom from the study of Yahweh's word you find true riches, that will never rust, never rot, never perish. That's why David said Psalms 19 verse 10; More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. You believe that? We value Messiah and his riches in the words of Yahweh more than the riches of this world. So many people are chasing the buck ,the dollar and every year the dollar gets weaker and weaker, less and less able to buy things. But you know Yahweh riches never lose their value.
And we'll find as we apply them they begin to
increase their value to us. It's actually so much better how much it would better it is to get wisdom than gold. And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver, Proverbs 16:6. The fact in many ways the gain of silver, gain of gold, a gain of houses, a gain of riches, a gain of cars and belongings and stuff. The more we gain those things the more difficult it is to focus on the real priorities. It's because of all the stuff in the way taking up our time. But Yahushua warned us, I said it last week, I think it's easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Elohim. That's a pretty profound statement, now there Aramaic suggest maybe the word camel means rope,
rather than actual you know camel.
Either way it's not too easy for a rope to go through a needle. But it is possible with Elohim all things are possible, so I'm not knocking anyone who has money. Scripture actually says you just don't seek which you should eat, what you should drink nor have an anxious mind, all these things and bases of the world seek after your father knows you need those things, but seek the kingdom of Elohim and all these things shall be added to you. So provide your material possessions if you to seek his kingdom first. Do not fear little flock, for is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Then he says, sell what you have and give alms, provide many bags for yourselves do not cruel. A treasure in the heavens that does not fail or no thief approaches are off this month destroys for where your treasure is there your heart will be also. And this Psalmist treasured the word of Yahweh and that's why the word of Yahweh was in his heart. And so that's the beautiful thing about it. So with your possessions Proverbs 3:9; whatever number of possessions Yahweh provides for you, he says honor Yahweh with your possessions. The first fruits of all your increase, so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your presses will overflow with new wine. So it's not evil to have possessions but you must take them for the glory of our heavenly father, put him first. Seek first the kingdom of Elohim and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you and don't fear he's willing to give you the kingdom.
All right, I have rejoiced in the way of your
testimonies as much as or as in all riches. Beautiful words here 15-16, says, I will meditate on your precepts And contemplate your ways,
I will delight myself in your statutes: I will not
forget your word. I will not forget your word, so If you think
meditating on the precepts doesn't matter that much,
read that Psalms; I will meditate on your precepts. And Psalms chapter 1 says; Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the righteous, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Yahweh; and in his law he meditates day and night. That's the pathway of blessing, if you spent some time reading his word, he's not saying you have to read the word all day and all night. He's saying meditate it, think about it. When the sheep go out in the pasture, he just I see you wanna go on the pasture and start gobbling up all the weeds and practically swallowed whole barely even to it. Then later they sit down on a shady spot in the grass and just start chewing, start chewing the cud. And so you read the word, you take the things that interest you and then you meditate on them, and you think about them and let Yahweh teach you by a spirit from there as you meditate. And you meditate its precepts not just when reading it, but when you're done reading it, contemplating our ways, contemplating his ways so when you're reading a scripture the goal is not, oh look at this nice novel and you forget about it. The goal is that those words will take root in your heart and bear fruit. And that first requires a heart that has the good soil. A good heart is a good soil is like the heart of this Psalmist here who wrote psalms 119, he delighted in Yahweh's statutes and, therefore, he treasured them, he did not forget them, and he meditated on them, he thought about them. And so we think about it we say was there anyways I need to better conform myself to something I just read. Some people read the scriptures and oh nice little tales I get to read here, so fun you know when you read these stories. And you get something more difficult like commandments, yeah kind of boring to them because we are not pursuing righteousness, we're not pursuing holiness. There are other people like when you read the scripture, what can I learn through this, what do I need to change in myself, so I can be what I'm supposed to be like Yahushua. In my pursuit is I would seek to be just like him and so when I'm reading the Torah I'm reading how he lived. I'm reading the scripture, this thing in the laws even if the New Testament. One example you're seeing kings are chronicled or something in the Psalms there is something where I'm falling short here. Because I love Yahweh I want to not fall short, and you start reading Yahweh's word like that and the whole thing opens up, it'll show you wondrous things out of his law. Yes we wanna spend time meditation, meditating on the law of Yahweh. But first you have to delight in him, your delight must be in the law of Yahweh. If your delight is not in the law then you're not gonna meditate on it, you're not gonna think about it because you don't delight in it. But to whoever who wrote this Psalm it was like, it was better than gold, It was it was better than gaining any kind of riches. And is that our hearts, is that how we are, before our heavenly father, do we treasure his words, do we long to hear the shepherd's voice. There are other voices out there, different counsel , different ideas, got the counsel of the unrighteous. They love to tell you their counsel Inspired by the enemy, the serpent was being used by Satan, spoke through the serpent and gave the serpent his counsel spoke his counsel.
And so he became a sinner, Adam and Eve became
sinners and now the world was a big mess after that. But if our delight is in Yahweh's law his counsel, then we will hear other voices of other shepherds who are leading us in other directions, or we will see the lust of the eyes, lusts of the flesh, the pride of life and we'll pursue our own counsel. But we have to be careful, because first we hear the counsel of the wicked first, you know you just kind of stand around listening, and then at
first you're walking in the council and you're
standing there and pretty soon you're sitting there and you want to hear it more. And so all start walking and standing and sitting. So don't do it. Don't hang out among the congregation of the dead, there's no life in there. Don't walk there, don't stand there, don't be sitting there, don't even listen to them, walk straight up the path that Yahweh has set.
Try to look straight ahead, don't go to the
right, don't go to the left. That's the counsel in Yahweh's word.
So it says in Deuteronomy chapter 6 verse 7; You

should teach them diligently to your
children, you shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when thou walk by the way, when you lie down, when you rise up. You shall bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house, and on your gates. It's pretty awesome, Yahweh's word he says he wants his word to be continually around us, our hands as between our eyes on our doorposts, on our
gates.
Talk about them when we sit down, when we walk and when we rise up. So where you sit and where you walk and where you stand that's what you do when you rise up is important. Where you walk, where you stand, where you sit. So we want to hear, we want our children as we sit, as we walk as we rise up, we want them to hear the word of Yahweh. And we want to hear the word of Yahweh as a sign is a state that literally is there as a sign on your hands something that's s always before you, something you continually thinking about. And so that way if anything, any lie of the enemy comes along immediately recognize the counterfeit. You study truth and then you find the counterfeit just like whenever an agent is looking for counterfeit bills he doesn't study all different ways Counterfeit their bills, he studies the real McCoy, the real dollar bill on a dollar bill and then based on that He can recognize whenever there's a counterfeit so you study the truth, you don't want to study all these other things, state a truth and then you recognize it whenever there is something impure, something is not correct something foreign. You're gonna look at it then you go, what is that garbage. They don't look right, get out of here, rebuke you in Yahushua's name, reject that thought in Yahushua's name. I want no part of whatever that is and we will begin to appreciate Yahweh's word as it does its work in our hearts. Verse 17; Deal bountifully with your servant that I may live and keep your word. You see the motivation here, for receiving goodness? He wants to be dealt bountifully with, that he may live and he may keep the word of Yahweh that's his motivation. His motivation for having a bountiful blessed life is that he may live and keep the word.
So when things are going well, we're not facing
trial and temptation, yes it's a little easier to keep Yahweh's word. So we're on a path of temptation, it's a lot more difficult to keep and that's when Yahushua said..., my the next verse was Matthew 6:13; Do not
lead us to temptation, but deliver us from the evil
one, for yours is the kingdom, and power and glory forever. That's part of Yahushua's prayer we don't want to be in temptation, we don't want to face difficulties in trials and Yahweh wells it's not a bad thing, it's also for our good. But we don't want to die, we want to live and keep his word rather than falling in temptation and risk the possibility of sin. So we pray to lead us out of temptation, keep us from the evil one. Now when we pass the test Yahweh says he gives a crown of life to those who love him. But the trials are there, we accept them and does make us stronger in the end but also very difficult and but we really want to not fall away and that's what this Psalmist is saying, I don't want to fall away, I don't want to be tempted, keep me from temptation. Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live, and keep your word. Bless my life, that I may live and keep your word, beautiful thoughts here. Verse 18 Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law. I like this verse a lot, I'd say that's what happens you know, you ask Yahweh to open your eyes in things that you look at, you just go that is incredible, that's just marvelous, extraordinary, beyond our power. So many times I look at Yahweh's word, I just say you know how can something just be so awesome and be made by a man no way in the world, It was not inspired by the most high and so but Yahweh has to open our eyes to it, right? Open my eyes he says to Yahweh that I may see wondrous things from your law. This is Psalmist praying here that Yahweh will give him understanding and see more wonderful things. And these things are foreign, what we see today you know, today we have like you keep me from your law because it's all done away with, it's abolished, the truth is there are wondrous things in his law if we're willing to examine and look and study. And so we are saying don't hide your commandments from us, right I'm a stranger in the earth. Do not hide your commandments from me, I want to know what your commandments are don't hide them, I know I'm a foreigner here, this is not my home, don't hide your commandments. I want to be all you called me to be, can we
say that?
Would we pray that? Yahweh reveals to me your wisdom, don't hide your commandments from me, open my eyes let me see wondrous things from your law. I love the heart of the man who wrote this Psalms. I just think it's beautiful, sometimes you can read his law, I mean you read the words but there are things in there you don't even understand he's saying. So don't assume it's because you read through the whole Bible one time that you've learned all you got to learn. Oh no you're just getting started, there's a whole lot more, if you stop, just like we're going through Psalms 119 here. If you just stop and meditate and study and examine, there's all kind of things you can pull out of different verses and ask Yahweh to open your eyes and the Psalmist do that. And he's like well you know I've read that before, you've ever had that happen to you? I've read that, I don't know how many times, it wasn't until now I realized this means that over there, this is a new way of seeing this in a more fantastic way of looking at it. It's not that what actual literal meaning is anything wrong, but the literal meaning is great but then there's a deeper meaning than the literal meaning. You know don't hide your commandments from me, his desire is that we would know more about how to walk as Yahushua walked. Yahweh wants us to manifest his life and show
the world how he lived.
And so we're saying, don't hide your commandments from me, open my ears, open my eyes I may see wondrous things out of your law, the Scribes and Pharisees they heard but they did not hear, They saw they couldn't see. They were like the idols they followed, dumb idols, seeing they couldn't see, hearing they couldn't hear. Mouths they had, they could not speak. So those make them I like them, in Psalms 115. And so you know you'll be blind If you're not interested in hearing, then you won't hear. So we've got to put Yahweh in his place all the sudden get the aisles out of our hearts, out of our minds, he will start opening our eyes that's an
ongoing journey that never ends, never stops.
Never assume you reach a certain level of maturity and now you're a retired believer, you're done working now sit back get your spiritual pension. No we are always constantly a work in progress, no matter what our age is. You know one thing I respect when I hear an even older person come into this walk and they receive it. I respect them so much and I'll tell you why, because they spent their whole life thinking on direction. And they are humble enough to recognize that it was a wrong direction. So many people get into there older years and they get cemented and they stuck and there's not growing anymore. And I respect people I know who are up in age and yet very much seeking the will of our heavenly father. Angelica Hughes, Ramona Mann and many more, I respect every one of you, I know how tough it can be to unlearn all that stuff you know, not learn correctly. So, but don't ever stop growing even after you've figured out you're supposed to keep the law now is a whole New World it's like the first 2 thirds of Yahweh's word you realize actually applies to you, and that is so wow imagine that. There's a whole world is going to open up now, so you just getting your feet wet. And you know but recognize that the more you learn the more you're accountable for, I had a gentleman ask me yesterday, so how long have you been in this understanding of keeping in the Feast and all this, and I said well this will be my 29th Passover and I said that doesn't make me any better than you, It just makes me more responsible, and it's true. It doesn't make me any better, in fact I might be in more trouble being one who is out here teaching people Yahweh's words, I pray that I don't falter. But it's a lifelong journey, I never get tired of it, the word of Yahweh never gets old, It's a lifelong journey of understanding how to live, how to walk, how to conduct ourselves, and a journey of learning our own hearts and the things that are in our hearts that need to change. You never really reach the end because it's an on-going journey that Yahweh continually teaches you and until you jaw your last breath on the earth and so as long as your heart is yearning for more, there is no end to his wisdom. No end to it, he says his understanding is infinite the scriptures say. And so, is it not wonderful even though he has infinite understanding, he's willing to look down upon us because of the blood of Yahushua Messiah and accept us right where we are. There's not a perfect man on the planet accept us right where we are, and we want to have Messiah in us completely and perfectly and fully, and that's a heart Yahweh can work with. It's when we give up, we walk away and we say whatever. What is the reason ever wonder about this? What's the reason why there are so many different interpretations of scripture? Everywhere you go someone has got a different take on everything, they don't always contradict sometimes they do. But why do you find people having such contradictory views of the scriptures, why is that?
What I found there, seven reasons there's more.
Here's at least 7, posted this list on my Facebook here recently. 7 reasons why there are so many different interpretations, now there are more than 7, again. But here are some key ones: number 1, personal bias, wanting to find reasons to explain a way, the need to do what it says and a brother Bill Williams pointed out this is self-worship.
Wanting to find reasons to get out of doing what he says.
or, 2) Relying on pastors, some relied on seminary teachers or who then relied on church fathers, who also had their personal biases; that leader worship. 3) The preference for tradition in traditional views, assuming the mainstream culture must be correct that's culture worship. 4) Fear of what others may say of you, if you were to do what scripture actually taught you to appear to others rather than to the Messiah, that's worshiping your friends and peers. 5) Laziness, not wanting to invest time and energy into actually doing an in-depth study to discover the true meaning of things. 6) Lacking true love for our heavenly father and that's leisure worship. And being content an this is play religion, and that's the actual meaning, the scripture is not really all that important to you because you're content to stick with what the basics are, not really grown beyond them. And self-worship and leisure worship 7) All our parents, grandparents, all their great-grandparents, excimer generations they are part of this particular church and therefore I'm not going to change, good enough for them is good enough for me; Its ancestor worship. So our walk with Messiah is progressive, it's in flux, it's dynamic, it's not static, and we need to continue to grow and learn to do as he teaches us. So here's the psalmist he's saying you know I've kept your commands and all these things that he says open my eyes that I may see wondrous things, from your law don't hide your commandments from me, that's love, that's true love, I love the journey, how about you? You love the journey, I love the journey, it's an awesome journey, we love to sit and think you know, He doesn't accept me until I complete my journey, no no no no no. We don't have to say I don't live up to his law yet and I'm waiting to be perfect so accept me, no that's not the way it works. Excuse me but when did the Messiah die for the perfect ones? I don't remember reading it, I think it was the imperfect ones he actually died for, who are willing to turn hard away from things that are not, things that are vain and worthless and turn the hard way in ways and eyes toward the things that are right. And that's why the Psalmist even though he recognizes his own areas of blindness, he's accepted by our heavenly father. He's crying out for more, crying out for more understanding. He says my soul breaks with longing for your judgments at all times. Oh wow, I love it, not just sometimes but at all times. You think that sometimes maybe even recently that
you are longing for his judgments and commandments
and statutes and laws you're kinda going your own way and doing something you shouldn't be doing. Then manifest the right heart before Elohim and long for them at all times. Every circumstance, every situation you can fathom, this Psalmist wanted Yahweh's ways. He wanted righteous judges to come in, he wanted to see Yahweh's ways accomplished in the earth and as you know others don't see the thing that drives us, but we recognize that we're strangers in the earth. People look at you and I think what are you doing, you go off the deep end, but we're like the Psalmist crying out for Yahweh to open our eyes. We're like the man, the blind man along the road, Yahushua walking by; Son of David have mercy on me,
Son of David have mercy on me, Yahushua said what do
you want me to do? Just open my eyes and let me see and so we cry out together, to the son of David have mercy on us
that we may see.
And Yahushua has many things to teach us and he will teach us little by little every day, If we want to learn. That's why I don't condemn those who don't see the things I see, it's all about your own personal relationship with the Almighty, you're his workmanship and not mine.
It's learning, it's growing, even Acts 15, the
apostles they respected Yahweh's leadership and the life of the Gentiles who were turning to Yahweh and say well let's give him some things to get him started you know, refrain from blood and from sexual immorality and things strangled and this kind of thing and then they'll learn the rest when they hear the law in the synagogue. Which that assumes they're going to the synagogue to learn the law, that's the whole basis for the ruling.
And actually it came home and said I saw and said
while Acts 15 that's the only thing in the law of Moses you need to keep. And there's something like that and it's like none of those things are from the law of Moses they're all from the time before the law was given he said Genesis 9:3, don't eat the blood with a meat, sexual immorality was condemned at Sodom and Gomorrah, obviously idolatry, hopefully we see that is not appropriate but you know let's not Moses thing, but you know we have to respect other people, even as I respect can hope I disagree with him on this. Yahweh knows where his heart is, I don't pretend to know I just think he's wrong on some things. So learning and growing it's a daily thing, none of us sit down at the dinner table and eat everything you're gonna eat for the next month, right? The next 20 years and I mean our bodies wouldn't be built to handle everything. We'll be hungry again in a day, it's just too much at once, can't digest everything in one sitting. And that's how the apostles treated Gentiles who were new to keeping Torah, to keeping the law of Yahweh, they knew they'll be learning a lot every week in Synagogue and so let Yahweh lead them. He obviously had the Holy Spirit, it was manifesting itself, they saw it themselves and the spirit would guide them into all truth. But we're all in different places along the narrow path and just because one person knows more than the other doesn't mean they're any better, or even further ahead. It's all about what you doing with what you know, what are you doing with what you learned already? That's what matters, give me someone who is walking out 95 percent of what he's learned, over someone who knows 50 percent more but then only walking out 50 percent of it. And so we got to stay humble, you got to stay humble and you know we need to pursue, be in pursuit of the truth and because knowledge can pelf up, but don't let that puff you up. Instead understand the purpose of the law is love, 2 Timothy chapter 1; from a pure heart, from a sincere faith, from a good conscience, and then you understand It's all about love. So now the next verse says; you rebuke the
proud, the cursed who stray from your
commandments. If we stray from his commandments we are putting ourselves under a curse, one who strays indicates, one who is formally keeping them but then straying away from them. So straying away from the voice of the shepherd right. And so if we see someone who's straying we should
seek to bring them back as I mentioned, we should
seek to bring them back. And if we are straying away, we need to know that Yahushua will come looking for us. And when he comes looking for us we need to be willing to follow him once again, all right. So sometimes you know he'll spank us, because we strayed away; Give us a little pain, a little un-pleasantries, and the because Yahweh loves he corrects. The father and his soul and the son when he delights he corrects. He always said in Deuteronomy 8:5; all back in the Torah, You should know in your heart, as a man chastens his son, so Yahweh your Mighty One chastens you. And if you're getting chastened that shows that Yahweh loves you. For whom Yahweh loves he chastens, Hebrews 12:6; he scourges every son whom he receives. Every son gets scourging. If you endure chastening Elohim deals with you as sons, for what son is there among who the father does not chasten, but if you're without chastening you're not getting corrected you're not being going through something negative thing or in bad shape, could mean you're illegitimate. He knows your heart is obstinate, and you're on a wrong path and so if you turn back to the right path.
Now sometimes it could be that Yahweh will allow you

to prosper even when you stray from his word and
you wonder, you say I know I have not been living right why am I prospering, why are things going well? And you think I guess maybe the scriptures aren't true that say I would be cursed and because the reality is I'm flourishing, I'm doing great, having the best time of my life right now, doing my own thing look out, look out. Scripture says this when the wicked spring up like grass and when all the workers of iniquity flourish it is that they may be destroyed forever.
Yahweh is not blessing you all of a sudden something
can happen, and he can end your life any moment, he has no obligation, he could end your life any moment and you will be in the place of torment.
And so it's serious trouble, if you're
prospering and people wonder why the wicked spring up like grass and just flourish, it's not good for them. That's not a blessing for them, no that's not a good thing for them it's actually a terrible thing that they suffer no consequences for their wrongs that means Yahweh is saying I'm gonna put all their consequences on the other side when I judge them on the day of judgment. Yeah they'll get theirs, don't think that they're in a good place, they're not. It just means that Yahweh is not gonna judge now he gonna judge later. And it's better to be judged now than to be judged later right. Absolutely, so when they flourish, when they do well it's not good for them, It's good for them if Yahweh rebukes them and he allows them to suffer the curses. It's when someone's walking in wickedness and doing well, that's not good, It's not good for them, not a good sign, it means they're not they're not sons, they're not his. They can change, anyone can change, you can change, if you feel that's you I don't know who you are out there. You feel that's you, you can change, just recognize that sometimes walking the way of Yahweh is a more difficult and a more narrow path.
Here's an interesting one, he says to remove from me
reproach and content. Here is a man who walks in the law of Yahweh yet he faces reproach and contends. Why? Because he's kept the testimonies of Yahweh, when we walk in a way that's different than the world we're going to get reproach, we're going to get content it's just gonna happen, expect it, be looking for it, it'll happen because people their consciences are being bothered by what you're doing and they want to see you fall so their conscience will not bother them anymore.
Now I find this interesting because he
says, I have kept your testimonies, did he?
Because another place he said all that my ways were
directed to keep your statutes, that I would not be ashamed when I look into all your commandments. And so which is it? Is he keeping their testimonies or is he ashamed when he looks at him. Because he knows his ways are not directed at keeping them. It's not a contradiction look at Luke chapter 1 verse 5; There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abia: his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, her name was Elizabeth. And they were both righteous before Elohim, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Master blameless. probably it should be Yahweh here, but blameless, does that mean they never sinned one time in their entire life? No, not everyone has we've all fallen short, is that us? Are we blameless? Are these men righteous? Is Zacharias really righteous? How you define righteousness? If you keep the commandments and ordinances of Yahweh it says you're righteous. So they're both righteous why? They kept the commandments, they kept the ordinances of Yahweh so another example. These are the genealogy of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with Elohim, perfect. 1 Kings chapter 9:4; Now if you walk before me, as father David walked (Yahweh speaking to Solomon), and the integrity of your heart, and uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep my statutes and my judgments. This you know given this condition now, if you walk before me as David walked, integrity, uprightness, integrity and uprightness. Didn't David like murder a guy and commit adultery and yet Yahweh says he walked in integrity and uprightness, a man after his own heart.
ll right, the truth is by this we know that we know
him if we keep his commandments. Do we really keep his commandments? Does that mean if we fail or mess up we no longer know him or we're no longer his, no longer blameless and no longer say we are Torah keeping men and women. There are people who say that to you, we are not keeping the law because you're doing this, that or whatever or you know, they got the reasons why you think it is impossible to keep.
You say we believe in keeping Torah now if we
mess up sometimes we can get forgiveness, but they say well no. We're under a law you cannot mess up even one time, In fact you're not doing sacrifice, you're not stoning people so you're not keeping the law in any way. If you mess up once you no longer blameless, no longer keeping his law, you are in big trouble because you're trying to be saved by your own righteousness, have you heard those words before? If you haven't you will, if you believe, if you try keeping Yahweh's word eventually he'll hear it. Just give it time, Yahweh never dealt with people that way, as far as you got to be perfect or I'm gonna strike you down and kill you.
But many interpret that you know the Greek-Roman
says; well you claim to keep the law and you better do this, you better do that and you better do the other thing because you have to be perfect and you won't be a law keeper. And you say you're denying grace and forgiveness if you don't go out and disobey the law, you got it all backward. You see, if our hearts are truly yearning for the will of Elohim and yet out of weakness we fail in some point, we do have an Elohim in heaven who is a forgiving, a merciful Elohim and he's willing to give us grace and mercy and forgiveness. It was true in Old Testament times also, it wasn't a New Testament concept only. Psalms 103 says; as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. And so you know this is all, nothing new, you know how great Yahweh's mercy is? If you are to walk east and you could walk on water, go across the ocean and he went east how far would you go before you start going east? You just keep circling the globe right, you'd never stop, if you're to go west the same is true the other direction. No it's not true for north and south, if you go to the north, get the North Pole you start going south again, isn't that pretty amazing. So Yahweh said east, from the east to the west as evident in both directions, that's how far he has removed our transgressions from us and that's true then we are blameless.
We are righteous, upright people if our
transgressions are removed from us, then there's nothing for which we can be blamed, because our transgressions are removed far from us in fact where are they? Isiah 53 verse 5; But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and by his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray (everyone Zacharias, Elizabeth, the Psalmist who wrote Psalms 119, all of us have gone astray, all of us); we have turned every one to his own way (we've all done it); and the Yahweh has laid on him the
iniquity of us all.
e was willing to bear it for us, he's baring your
iniquity right now if you're just are willing to
cry out for forgiveness, and crying out for wisdom. And for someone to tell you and say to you because you want to keep his law because you cry out for wisdom and understanding that somehow, some way, you're denying his grace.
They're the ones that are not applying grace.

No accuse you not applying grace because you believe
in keeping the law, It's they who are not applying grace, It is those who cry out to Yahweh for forgiveness and those who diligently seek the right way to live, who are the recipients of his mercy, those who fear Elohim and Yahweh will see us like he saw on David. Even though David sinned with Bathsheba, he will say you were a people you walked in the integrity of your heart and uprightness. David cried out, oh creating me a clean heart, renew a right spirit within me, Psalm 51 after he sinned with Bathsheba, restore to me the joy of your salvation that the bones that were broken they rejoice. And Yahweh forgave him, says I put away your sin, where did he put it, right here.
He laid on Yahushua, he couldn't be blamed
anymore. Yahushua took the blame, I'll take it to put on me,
isn't that free, isn't that beautiful, isn't that
the power of grace, yes. If that doesn't inspire you do not want to do it anymore, what will because of what he went through
for you.
Don't trample on his grace like cursing thing, a common thing.
Have the attitude of a child who loves his daddy

and wants to be like his daddy like Yahushua did.

Any confusion about where grace applies, many times
just understand a father-son relationship
and how it's supposed to be.
And you understand it, he wants to give you grace, he wants you to be like him he's the only perfectly righteous example. He is the only one worth following so many people out there don't stand their counsel, don't sit in their seats and don't walk in their ways But your delight be in the law of Yahweh, let it be your meditation day and night.
That's the pathway of blessing thank you father
Yahweh for this pathway of blessing you set before us and we desire your favor and your mercies, and your grace in our life. We thank you that there is a place to put all of our sins, all of our wicked deeds. Yahweh fills us we want to see wondrous things out of your law. We don't want to be blind, open our eyes so that we may see these things, and forgive us father where we have not been diligent, not been zealous, in our pursuit of the shepherd's voice. Let us not be deceived anymore into thinking the shepherd's voice is anything different Than the shepherd that has spoken Exodus and Deuteronomy and Leviticus. Let us walk as he walked and thereby manifest your
holy and righteous image, and keep us from
temptation, from every plan and path, an idea, and precept, and principle that the enemy is seeking to confuse us with.
And by your Holy Spirit lead us into the world of truth.
For truly yours is the kingdom and power and glory and majesty and all praise honor and worship belongs to you. Yahweh Elohim, Yahweh our Mighty One, forever and ever in Yahushua's great name we pray, Amein.
