Psalms 119:137 TZADDI. Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.

The first anointing of the Tzaddi is Wisdom and to say you can take this one to the Bank is literally the Rock we stand on. How important is it to trust that your Dad knows and is Just and his judgement will bring  Glory.

This is the Truth Network treasurers of fun fun fun day. We are switching from the pace to the fatty or some people say that each section of the hundred 19 Psalm are to be in verse 137.

But before we jump into that verse. We want to do just a little bit.

Overview were common. From that idea of the presence of God in the face of God. As we talked about all those verses where you shining his face upon us and then very very cool as he shines his face upon us. It makes us righteous and so that is the letters body, which is everything to do with righteousness. It's got a lot to do with trees and right angles and things that look right and so it's a really really cool letter and I really look forward to the exploration of all that it means and how important it is in our lives, way more than I would've said years ago, but the longer I live the more I see the beauty of this letter and the idea righteousness so verse 137 starts out a course that he and it says righteous are now old Lord and upright are thy judgments. And so here we would have the first anointing or the you have the wisdom anointing from Isaiah 11. As we talked about that Jesus had the seven anointing's in Isaiah 11 and so he is the word and every single letter has these anointing's and so what the Holy Spirit is kinda shown me is that these verses lineup amazingly with these anointing's and so here we would have the wisdom of the letters body and you know there's tremendous wisdom in this and you know as a comparison verse and there's no doubt in my mind that that that that King David used this verse from Deuteronomy 32 as a basis for this and it's so clear that when we think about our father's home. How wonderful if they were righteous, but the on our heavenly father is the standard for which all this is measured so if you take the verse that I think this verse is kind of based on an Deuteronomy I has more than beautiful and one that I add to my collection of favorite verses so here it is. Deuteronomy 32 verse four.

He is the rock which by the way that word starts with is that he is well he is the rock's work is perfect for all his ways are judgment of God of truth and without iniquity.

Just and right is he, and so as we see throughout the Scripture. So often you see this idea of justice and righteousness together and we see it again here and so this has everything to do with the letter that that we are studying is an interestingly I you know it's so important, I think that when we look to God. We realize that everything he's doing everything he's doing every little smidgen of a detail in his word and in our lives is perfectly righteous and perfectly up right and so this idea of upright is really a beautiful thing when it says upright, or your judgment that this idea that when you look down the straight line and it looks absolutely beautiful because it's perfect but if there's a big crooked point in the line. It doesn't look so beautiful and so the idea of upright, is that not only is it right but when you look at it. It's beautiful to the eye because it's exactly at a 90 angle or its perfectly in line a straight line to where it is that supposed to go. So there's the idea of upright in the idea of judgments again of we talked about throughout this and again of the psalmist brings his home so well is that everything is being purified to get rid of the draws. In other words, everything is going to be made perfect, without blemish, and he's getting rid of everything that's not righteous and and highlighting that which is righteous and so it's really really cool that that not only do we see here that our father God in heaven is perfectly righteous, but the everything is upright as well, especially when it comes to his judgments because what's happening in all the world all the time is his judgment and it's all being purified just like your digestive system is getting the necessary nutrients to ourselves and getting rid of the draws and being passed of the body so that it can be disposed of and and there is the idea. You know that that we talked about in that one verse in the sonic section where you know that output is the way the wicked of the earth like draws you know and and so that's what's happening is the wickedness is getting on by draws, but were looking at this pure our righteousness so you know the sad news is sometimes we can judge righteousness by what's not right right and in the sad really, really set things off in this have to do with our parents to look into my dad to be righteous, and certainly I had him on a pedestal when I was young. We had a beautiful family were probably in a white father knows best.

In my view, the way I grew up but then one day, unfortunately you know and and believe me, my father and I've talked at length of this or forgiven him, and all that stuff but how he got knocked out the pedestals one day he introduced me to his lover and you literally broke my heart tore out took my dad off the pendant like what like oh my goodness and and that changed my whole moral compass and allowed me to make all sorts of bad judgments about my father bad judgments my own life based on now. I had all sorts of excuses because the line was where was supposed to be and unfortunately I didn't know God's word and I didn't have a standard at that point in time that I should've had, but now when I look and I go. Oh my goodness out what I needed all along was what Deuteronomy 32 four tells us, which is by the way, this is this is Moses's swansong to some speak you know he he's fixing the pass on and now he's telling folks all that's going to be an interestingly if you look the Deuteronomy 32, four verse eight he says that right before he talks about a wicked and adulterous generation right not unlike what Jesus said when when they were looking for a sign and so this here is saying look look look look.

If God is your father. This is the kind of righteousness. He brings and this is the kind of pure tea that he brings. And so as we look at our own lives and we go. When was it that we decided that we could base things on you know the righteousness of our fathers, our own righteousness. You know that that nothing could be further from God and self-righteousness right. The idea that is beyond like crazy.

I the only way were going to get right and the only way that that that that can happen is through Jesus's righteousness when he paid on the cross, which by the way, you know, when you look at the idea of a tree. It starts with is that a because it is a right angle and that's exactly where Christ had to die on that tree to make us right in the beauty of that is beyond understanding and we are going to be looking at that. This is the wisdom wisdom is that what we want to know what the standard righteousness is perfect lines are perfectly aligned and then that way we can really really have him in that position where we can worship is right he is sleeping righteous right is judgment.
