Psalms 119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
By studying the point of attack you can see what your enemy is afraid of - so true of The King of Kings our Messiah (Mem). No one can deny he played the enemy like a fiddle, this the understanding anointing of the letter Mem.
Treasurers storm is going around Mem versus and that letters so significant when you think about the fact that it starts the word Messiah.
It is clearly a reference for Christ. But when we think about this as we get an opportunity to see the seven faces or excuse me, sensors eight versus the eight phases of letter Mem you know we talked about the wisdom one yesterday would truly be the first anointing, the second one is understanding and wowing an understanding we get a chance to look into. So verse 98 in English, which is the second verse in the Mem section it says bow through thy commandments has made me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me, and what a cool versus is in Hebrew to look at concept that really is almost mind blowing.
When I discovered it some years ago.
Actually, that it's interesting that by doing you know, just looking at how your enemy pursues you gives a real good idea of the value of your testimony of the value of your walk with God. You know where he is attacking you is quite often the place of your greatest strength or the part that he is the most afraid of, or if if you're an event or doing something where you see you know him coming after you, and all sorts of ways. Even with your family like when you go to cut a Christmas tree and all sudden break fights break out all over the place. Clearly, you know, Satan is after something and so by digging into that very thing that you can become wiser than your enemy as you can see the value of what you know that that that Satan Caesar whoever your enemy visits come against his medevac. You know the Jews of taught this from this verse for a long time and will and will against the red Berube: the chief rabbi of Israel when the seven years war was going on aware that war was Israel. He he sent a letter to the general saying can't you tell that enemies are smarter than us because they're worried about you know all sorts of things other than our outer defenses and button so as I said the this concept is been around and understood, but is really really cool to think about with your own story right in your own case and you might recall that I told her the previous episode, how you know that I found out that my name was faithful that God called me faithful and by you digging into the fact that I was always being betrayed kind of led me to the understanding that wow my faithfulness is what Satan is going after trying to get me to hide that because you know through again. Those enemies will make us wiser than if we just study their point of attack. But then there's a second part of the verse, which is really really beautiful inside meditated on it because you know it what it says is, for they are ever with me and my initial reading of that was when my enemies are forever with me and I'm sure they were for King David and they are for me, but more importantly, I believe, and I think since the Mem has to do with the concept of more in the concept of kingdom is that the day that the verse is referring to are not the enemies but the commandments and in other words, as we begin to understand more and more love the Lord thy God with all our heart and love thy neighbor as thyself, and all those things that are ever with us, then those commandments through the understanding of how Satan is coming after those is actually making us wiser than her enemies in a good way to look at this is what's a good example of that. You look in Genesis 4, you know, there's the story of Cain and Abel and clearly in O'Kane had made this offering.
And he didn't get what he expected his brother did, however, and so he was upset and then the Lord came to him with his phenomenal wisdom in verse six and the Lord said to Cain, why are you angry, and why has your face fallen.
If you do well, will you not be accepted and if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you but you must rule over it. So the idea here is, it's fascinating when you study that word in Hebrew, the do well idea is really also be translated exalted in other words, to get above the situation and told stay underneath the hammer of the affliction that that Satan has younger rise above a seat. What is Satan coming after here right and what was Satan coming after him in the case of Cain was his love for his brother and my meanie he was coming after the whole love your neighbor as yourself. I mean that this is the commandment that would've hopefully been with Kane, but it wasn't at and since he couldn't rejoice in his brother's acceptance. You know he fell into this unbelievable sin. And so when we when we look at what web actually goes down inside of know what it is that were feeling. It's often revealed to us what our enemy is actually after and if we can identify that and rise above it.
It gives us a phenomenal leg up. It gives us wisdom kingdom wisdom right and so here we have in these verses of Mem. This is a very very wonderful understanding of something is very applicable to our lives to see that again through thy commandments is making you wiser than your enemies and those commandments are ever with you and your enemy may be to but one thing I'm absolutely certain is that what God has for eternity right when you say is it ever with you well for this company forever. It's got a P.commandments not the enemies because we know that what happens to the enemy and in so again my take on it. I get iPod so grateful for the law in a chance to talk today am so delighted that we get to study these verses, especially in this Mem section, the Messiah. It also has to do with water and some really really cool things to get into. As we continue to dig into the Mem section of the hundred 90
