Acrostic Psalm – a filing system that the Jews developed from the ancient Hebrew alphabet with every letter from their alphabet having a special significance and meaning.
Aleph – a to the Jews aleph represented an Ox and signifies prosperity as found in the Word of God, mentioned in PSA 119:1-8.
The first eight verses all begin with the first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet which is known as the letter Aleph – equivalent to our letter “A” in the English alphabet.
Asheri = yrˆ}v=a and it is in the plural and therefore it means “blessings” or “happinesses” referring to both inner or overt blessings or forms of happinesses.”
Because the Aleph is a file that represents prosperity, all eight verses in PSA 119:1-8, tell us how a believer can prosper.
PSA 119:1 begins by saying again “Asheri or in the English translation “Blessings or happinesses…
PSA 119:1 “Blessings or happinesses belong to those whose way is [not really blameless] but those who are equipped,
Torah = that which directs, guides, and aims us toward a way of life resulting in God’s divine nature in human vessels, or what I have been teaching , is Theandric action.
Theandric action = the action of God’s nature controlling a believer who has the humility revealed by the fact that they walk in the Torah of God.
PSA 119:1 “Blessings or happinesses belong to those whose way is equipped, Who walk in the law or the governmental doctrine of our Lord.
Asheri= “blessings” or “happinesses ” referring to both the inner and the overt manifestation of Happinesses or Blessings .
The word for testimonies is the Hebrew noun `edah derived from a word which signifies to testify, to be a witness of God’s word in action.
The imperfect tense called darash in the imperfect tense it means that they keep on having certain points of time when they seek or search frequently who God is.
To observe His Testimonies means that they keep on seeking those doctrines that cause them to be a witness for Him.
PSA 119:2 Blessings or happinesses belong to those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.
To truly worship God, one must seek after Him continually with all their heart and understanding that none of us ever really arrive – we are constantly growing.
ISA 57:14 “And it shall be said, “Build up, build up, prepare the way, Remove every obstacle out of the way of My people.”
“ways” simply refers to God’s ways or doctrine governing their behavior pattern.
In verse 4, the first word begins with the word ‘Ataah translated “Thou” and the first letter is an aleph hT*a^ô
“Ordain is the Hebrew word tsawah which means to decree; to appoint; to set in order a plan with a command.
Piel stem -s known as the intensive stem in the Hebrew which is the verb tsavah which means to appoint, to assign, to elect or to choose.
Billions and billions of years ago God has ordained or designed a solution to all of our disasters, that’s why no disaster is too great for the plan of God.
PSA 119:4 Thou hast commanded or ordained or ordered us .
Precepts- piqqudim, used 21 times): “This is a word used by an officer or overseer and it refers to categorical doctrines given by one in authority (namely God).
You have ordained or you have ordered us to guard; protect and utilize doctrine we are to seek diligently which means intensively, excessively, repeatedly, in other words with all of our heart.
MAL 3:16 Then those who respected or revered the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who respected the Lord and who esteem His name.
Ahaay – Oh That
ISA 1:5 Where will you be stricken again, As you continue in your rebellion? The whole head is sick, And the whole heart is faint.
ISA 1:6 From the sole of the foot even to the head There is nothing sound in it, Only bruises, welts, and raw wounds, Not pressed out or bandaged, Nor softened with oil.
From the bottom of your feet to the top of your head, nothing’s working right. There are wounds and bruises and running sores‑‑ untended, unwashed, unbandaged.
God the H.S. directs and empowers us so that human failures can be transformed into victories for the believer who is courageous in his faith and keeps going
Statutes (huqqim, used 21 times): The noun is derived from the root verb “to engrave” or “to inscribe”; the idea is that of the written word of God and the authority of His written word.
“ashamed” bawsh = confused – he says I shall not be confused! More people are confused as Christians than not.
The word for look is the Hebrew nabat which leans to look at something with respect and with pleasure and not to be influenced by the OSN or emotion.
The right attitude toward doctrine = I love it now and I want it to be converted into divine energy to glorify God.
Commandments (mitzvah used 22 times): “This word emphasizes the straight authority of what is said or divine orders from God.
“Learned” it is the verb lamad which means to learn the hard way says the aleph file which means to prosper.
It means we even have the ability to learn God’s righteous Judgments even through the experience of failure.
Judgments (mispatim, used 23 times): it reveals the rules by which we should be regulated; and cause us to discern what is right and wrong, and decide accordingly.”
God can say to Satan, “Look Satan, they are worshipping and praising Me when they learn.”
On the other hand, Satan can do the opposite and point to those who don’t.”
I will not live in the effects of fallen man expressing my OSN when I go through deserve suffering or undeserved suffering.
PSA 119:1, if doctrine governs their life and they walk in the law or the doctrine of the Lord, they will fulfill the ways of the Lord.
Since the beginning of the Church-age, Christians have struggled with the dilemma of representing the infinite God to finite mankind through vessels of clay.
This is the process of Theandric Action is the only provision whereby Christians are able to manifest the true nature of God in their mortal bodies within the Body of Christ and to a lost and dying world.
“For I do always those things that please him” (John 8:29b).
Describing His disposition, Jesus said, “I am meek and lowly in heart” (Matthew 11:29).
“That they all may be one; as thou Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us, that the world may believe that thou hast sent me” (John 17:21).
Desire = all men would know Christ and experience the very same life that He derived from His Father, through the provision of rebound and recovery for their growing process (1 Jo 1:9).
You will see that the chief end of man is to glorify God, but this is an impossible task for man to accomplish in the power of his own natural disposition.
1Co 15:l0b Paul said, “I labored more abundantly than them all, yet not I, but the grace of God that was in me.”
Truth concerning the invisible God can only be imparted to natural men by those Christians who understand and live in the appropriation of the principle of Theandric Action.
Through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, all human problems and failures can be transformed into victories for the believer who, in courage and faith, applies this principle.
God’s nature merges with our human nature through the intake of doctrine, the partaking of Christ’s nature, and the continual filling of the Holy Spirit.
