As we dive into the Dalet section - King David's Name itself and these verses illuminate so much of Jesus Teaching, that we too need to cleave to the dust.
Hidden treasures of the hundred and 19 fund. Today we get to dig in all of which I believe may well been getting David's favorite letter because it is making head to over minute right it's good which would be your David, you hear and see different ways but anyway it is stolid five dollars and there's no doubt that Hebrew sages of talk for centuries. Obviously that was David was so encompassed in his name because the dollar.
The two basic ideas of the Dollinger number one is humility or humbleness, and the second one is a door while they say that the door to spirituality comes through humbleness and so when it comes to this idea of servant leadership David a Malik odometer molecule are we was. He was a master of that and so it's really beautiful how he illuminates this letter for us and you can see him in the 25th verse just jump right into the idea of humility in so many different ways, which is just unbelievably enlightening.
From my perspective.
So the way the 25th verse reads starts out my soul cleave with him to the dust. That's pretty humble, Quicken, Maumee, according to thy word. So that word cleave is is an amazing word and it starts with the doll and just like every verse in the dollar section will and there's no doubt that he uses that word a couple times in this section of of eight verses on the doll. It because it is so significant to this idea of the doll. The word is the block in Hebrew and it has to do with like a door. A humble door. Her to the beginning or to the. The pursuing is the idea of cleaving right that that the first time we hear that is a memo you know cleave to his wife to leave his father and and mother and an the idea. Maybe you've heard some teaching on a soul tie that people want their souls want to get tied to things they want to pursue things in a course that this was designed for us to cleave to God, but unfortunately our souls have a tendency to cleave the other things and so here we go, and when we begin the cleave at that pursuing ideas in there and it's in that race of the doll. It is this door and then the bat we've talked about, you know, much is the house of the kingdom and so we have distorted the kingdom that has to do with pursuing. So what you cleave to what you going to pursue what door are you choosing door number one which this one is obviously the dust will this teaching is beyond fabulous, and Jesus of course gives us a lot of what this actually means when he describes it in John chapter 12 verse 24. We talked about… Seed goes into the earth right it's all alone, but if it goes into the earth, it will grow up and and bear much fruit. Well here.
King David is showing us something about dirt about dust specifically in the dust that he uses here is the very best that man is made out of because dust is the ultimate human solvent right we are going back that way you know and and the idea of dying to self and falling in the ground and in this all this you humility picture is just beyond cool. So when he says his soul cleave to the dust. This is symmetric, a beautiful picture of humility in such a beautiful picture of what Jesus talked about dying to self. But but and picking up your cross and following him, but then also very cool. As you study in this particular verse is check out Psalms 22. He talks about his soul. No is cleaving thereto, and any talk about cleaving to the dust and in Psalm 22 and it does the dust of death, and so in a David new well what he was talking about when he said he was cleaving to the dust and then he says Quicken thou me according to thy word. And again, that word is life, but very beautifully in this particular time that he wrote the word Quicken you won't see this many times in the Bible, but he uses a nun in the see the letter hay means life and then they use a good to say life, but in this case after the year that he used a nun which is like a seed in the cerise illuminating the picture that led in order to get you know to be a seed that's gonna sprout you gotta get the dirt and and so it's just an amazing amazing picture that King David doll involved doll. It is going to show us about the door to humility.
Here is this idea of cleaving unto the dust is is just the beginning of this whole particular face of God's only thing that you know we studied the this contrast is like the gimbal is the great and the dollar is the humble, the gimbal is the rich and the doll. It is the poor. In other words, there is is is big contrast right here but is a picture of who Jesus was and beyond. Great beyond anything you can think as far as gimbal but at the same point in time, he humbled himself, and he became as low as he could get down there with his and so this picture is being illustrated again to us as we go from, how great is our God that he would humble himself to become a man and and this is the beginning of where were going with this. Dollar section beyond beautiful.
