LIFE IN THE SCRIPTURES
"The LAW of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the LORD is enduring, making the simple wise. The STATUTES of the LORD are just, rejoicing the heart. The INSTRUCTION of the LORD is perfect and pure, making the eyes light up. The FEAR of the LORD is trustworthy, abiding forever; the JUDGMENTS of the LORD are true, righteous altogether, more desirable than gold, than much fine gold; sweeter than honey, than drippings of the comb." [Psalms (Tehillym) 19. 7 - 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim]
What a great tragedy that so little time is spent in the wonderful WORD OF THE LORD by most who call themselves "CHRISTians or Christ-like-ones." It is such a necessary food for health and joy in our spiritual lives, as well as the physical. "The sincere milk of the WORD" is for newborn babes [1 Peter 2. 2]; and it is the "strong meat" for those who are "skillful in the WORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS." [Hebrews 5. 12 – 13] "How pleasing is YOUR WORD to my palate, sweeter than honey" [Psalms/Tehillym 119. 103] and "man may live on anything that the LORD decrees." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 8. 3 Tanakh, Torah] The ETERNALLY RIGHTEOUS LORD is not only the "GIVER OF LIFE'S BREAD" — HE is "THE BREAD." For every LIFE-GIVING WORD that proceeds out of HIS mouth is the EXTRAORDINARY BREAD by which man lives.
The HOLY SCRIPTURES are the basis for salvation [2 Timothy 3. 15; 1 Peter 1. 23], but also for sanctification and day-to-day cleansing. "That HE (MESSIAH) might sanctify and cleanse her (the Church) with the washing of water by the WORD." [Ephesians 5. 26]
For those who will use their directions, the HOLY SCRIPTURES also provide daily guidance. "YOUR WORD is a LAMP to my feet, a LIGHT for my path." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 105 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Every blood-bought saint must be a seed-sowing witness for the LORD YESHUA, and "the SEED is the WORD OF GOD." [Luke 8. 11] The only offensive weapon in the CHRISTian's armor is "the SWORD of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD OF GOD" [Ephesians 6. 17], and this assures a victorious life and testimony for the one who uses it.
"The works of the LORD are great, within reach of all who desire them" [Psalms/Tehillym 111. 2] — is the wonderful testimony of King David in the OLD COVENANT. This is comparable to the great declaration of the Apostle Paul in the NEW COVENANT: "The HOLY SCRIPTURES are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in the LORD JESUS CHRIST." [2 Timothy 3. 15] "All SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD. It is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness." [2 Timothy 3. 16]
Something better than salvation, is to have fellowship with the ALL-TOGETHER LOVELY LORD GOD WHO saved us. And fellowship with GOD is equal with HIS mercy.
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
"Come, let us go out to meet the Sabbath Queen! Come, O Bride, the Sabbath presence is eagerly awaited, and joyously welcomed!" Let us exalt YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, the HOLY ONE WHO gives true Sabbath peace and rest.
May yours be the sweetest of days as you praise and worship our WONDROUS SAVIOR.
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace.
