Psalms 119:25-32
I lie prostrate in the dust;
Revive me, in keeping with Your Word.
I told You of my ways, and You answered me; teach me Your laws
Make me understand the way of Your precepts, and I will meditate on Your wonders.
I am melting away from anxiety and grief; renew my strength, in keeping with Your Word.

Keep deceitful ways far from me, and favor me with Your Torah (the Law).
I choose the way of trust; I set Your rulings before me.
I cling to Your instruction; Adonai, don’t let me be put to shame!
I will run the way of Your mitzvot (commands/instruction), for You have broadened my understanding.

Hebrew letter/English – Dalet/D
Number – 4
Words that connect meaning by both:
Idea, information, move, hang, entrance, earth, division, one thing with 3 functions, door, foot

Interesting to note that the first 4 verses are “directionally” man to God. Starting with the mentioning of dust (earth). Also that the various ways of saying instructions or Torah is said 4 times in the first 4 verses.
In the second 4 verses, it changes “directionally” God to man. He alone keeps us from deceit, favors us, gives us the will to choose, keeps us from shame, sets His rulings before us, broadens our understanding. Also the various ways of saying Torah/commands/Law; are mentioned 4 times in the second half of this section.

I have bolded the words that all connect to what you learn in the following links for the Letter and Number. Enjoy!

What was the ORIGINAL written language of the New Testament?

Below is the 1st part of this series. Well worth your time. It did not take me long to realize why Adonai (the Lord) had so directed my path “into a Jewish persuasion” throughout my life.

Example:
At a young age my mother had Jewish decor about the house.
Her favorite movies were; Hiding Place, Fiddler on the Roof.
At the age of 15, we started attending a Messianic Jewish Congregation which is a Jewish Church that believes that Yeshua (Jesus) is the prophesied Messiah in the Torah (Law) or Old Testament. Orthodox Judaism is Jews who are still waiting for the Messiah as they do not believe Yeshua is the Messiah. Though most Orthodox Jews do not practice Torah (the Law) or the book of Moses any more. Hence they no longer sacrifice animals to atone for their sin.

As I became more and more invested in my own study of the Word of God (Bible), I quickly started to study the Hebrew/Greek words and their meanings. A common Bible study companion is a Concordance; which is where one tends to be introduced to the fact that English is a baby language and can be quite hindering in understanding what some words translated into English in the Bible mean. I “stumbled” onto Jeff Benner’s Youtube channel during this time. I found his videos so very helpful in understanding the Hebrew/Greek phenomenon. They are so easy to understand without actually attempting to learn to speak and read Hebrew.

Coincidence? No.
I believe it is so important for people who say they believe in the Word of God as the Truth and Yeshua (Jesus) as their Savior to understand why God made a Jewish nation, why He sent His Son through it (He’s God after all, He could have used the Roman nation or any other gentile nation), and if He spoke Hebrew, what is the difference in how that Bible one believes in, as the end and beginning of all truth, can be read from a Hebraic point of view. Does it change the basic message? No. God has been exact and faithful that ANY language it can be read in will introduce Himself to the seeker.
Yet to “study to show oneself approved” yields a huge reward in the depth of their knowing Him better.

Most of my life the “believers” I have known have at best only wanted to know about God/Yeshua, but not really know Him. The whole concept of going ” down the Jewish ‘road'” to study and follow Him has shocked me in their aversion to it. The attitude of “its not nessassary” is the prevailing wind. Much equivalent to the same attitude about reading the Bible daily as a source of absolute need; is today. I speak without judgement here, as I myself, was once the same. Life is demanding, who has time to study the Bible everyday? Not many, especially with children and work and activities, puh…most people don’t have time to sleep.

Why do I give this “press” time then? Simple. The luxuries we have today as a means to squeeze in a little “come speak to me, Lord” time is without a doubt overwhelming!
Have a smart phone? Oh, dear fellow-sheep, use it!! Listen to a teaching while you drive, watch a quick video just before bed! The resources at our disposal leaves us all quite without excuses! God’s command that we love Him with all our hearts, minds, souls, and resources is not impossible or even that hard now! Make the time, it is a matter of life and death. Oh, not physically maybe but then if you say you believe what Yeshua (Jesus) said and did is where your Life is; then you understand the physical is the least important aspect of Life. Make your “smart-phone” wise! Your computer capable of truly computing! If you live in a free country like America make use of the freedoms and luxuries we have to honor God in all we do! For those of us who have had such resources and luxuries, we will be much more without excuse one day. And its fast approaching!

What is the difference between the languages of God/Yeshua and English? Can it really make a difference in knowing Him? Its up to you to find out. I pray you do. It has made a huge difference in my walk with Him.

This is a six part series, each video is about 6 to 12 minutes long. All of his videos are short and open a wealth of knowledge and renewed understanding in our Shepherd, Yeshua. We take more time to read an email than it often takes to watch one of these videos. Make your computers, smart phones, and other tools for life, really seek The Life, use them instead of them using you!

If you seek Me, you shall find Me!
These words spoken by Adonai in the Old and Yeshua in the New Testament, these are a promise He keeps. Test it, see if its not true.

Oh the depth of riches one can find in seeking the Lord of Life! I pray He blesses your every little effort to do so, and mine!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

Psalms 119:17-24 ~ G ~ Gimmel

October 23, 2012 at 4:17 am (The Shepherd's Words) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Letter ~ G ~ Gimmel ~ 3

Psalm 119:17-24
Deal generously with Your servant;
then I will live and observe Your word.
Open my eyes, so that I will see
wonders from Your Torah (Law).
Though I’m just a wanderer on earth,
don’t hide Your mitzvot (commands/instructions) from me.
I am continually consumed
with longing for Your rulings.
You rebuke the proud, the cursed,
who stray from Your mitzvot.
Remove scorn and contempt from me,
because I observe Your instruction.
Even when princes sit and plot against me,
Your servant meditates on Your laws.
Also Your instructions are my delight;
they are my counselors.

As before I have continued to post each section of Psalms 119, according to the “break up” corresponding to each letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It is very likely that Yeshua (Jesus) learned His letters and numbers starting here in Psalm 119.

**For further study and significance please note. Youtube videos by ancienthebreworg on Youtube. (The videos can be found here in the Shepherd’s Words button on the menu)
And for the amazing correlations with the number 3:

May Yeshua bless you as you study to shine within in the Light of  His approval. 🙂

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

Psalms 119: 9-16. ~ B/V ~ (Beyt)

October 16, 2012 at 1:38 am (The Shepherd's Words) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

Psalms 119:9-16
Hebrew letter – Beyt
English letter – B/V
Hebrew number – 2

How can a young man keep his way pure?
By guarding it according to Your Word.
I seek You with all my heart;
So that i won’t sin against You.
Blessed are You, Adonai! (Lord)
Teach me Your laws,
I proclaim with my mouth
All the rulings You have spoken.
I rejoice in the way of Your instruction more than any kind of wealth.
I will meditate on Your precepts and keep my eyes on Your ways.
I will find my delight in Your regulations.
I will not forget Your Word.

***Please see the references in Psalms 119 ~ A ~ Aleph to gain a deeper understanding of what the letter and numeral meaning taught young Yeshua (Jesus) as He learned His alphabet and numbers.***

I defer to the references above for encouragement for you to do your own “studying to show yourself approved”. Its quite inspiring to do so. Really brings the Word of God into “your world” – shaping and forming your ability to know God, instead of just reading about Him. There’s such a distinction, and honestly such a difference I can not over-emphasize the point.
Watch the 2-3 minute video for Beyt. Read the article on the significance of the number 2. Then sit back and watch God weave Himself into His Word in Psalm 119 and more to the point, your heart. It will be different than mine, yet similar in that He draws near the “same” with any who seek Him, to know Him more!

I would love to see your comments or see sharing in the comment format below.
What struck you in the “dig”?
How has it changed your perspective of Yeshua (Jesus)?
How does the number 2 find new meaning in your walk with Him today?

Everything means something to God, there’s not a single detail of your life that He doesn’t fairly shout His attention to!

I hope and pray you will get to know that by investing 20 minute’s of your time, you begin to see a lifetime of reward! That it will inspire you to “dig” more, know Him more, and find the excitement in walking with The Most High God! Oh, this is my prayer! Its my only desire in posting here in WordPress land! I love Him so, and He loves us beyond words to describe! Follow Him, straight through His Word, and see how they truly do hold LIFE within them!
