Psalms 119:145 KOPH. I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy statutes.
Th wisdom verse of the letter Quaf or Koph shares how Holy it is to call on Go and ask Him to hear; especially when your heart cry is to keep His most difficult commandments. I share an amazing story of a transgendered young woman to illustrate.
This is the Truth Network treasurers of the hundred and 19. Once again I'm having a wicked letter that he would let her cough and wow are you step up her game is that it is so amazing as it has to do with righteousness but now that hopefully we have that righteousness and we now can get close to God, and that it has everything to do with letter Cook and the idea of holiness, which is what that letter is to represent in so many different ways but as we study this letter. I think you will agree with me eventually that it has everything to do with time and space. In other words, how much time how much of a priority as God in our life and how close we get to God does lead to holiness and this is so beautiful as we get.
First of all, the first verse in the cough section was to be the wisdom anointing so the wisdom of the letter.
Cook again with this idea of holiness and time and space here we go so verse 145 in English. I cried with my whole heart hear me oh Lord, I will keep thy statutes and again in been down this road. Interestingly, in the aleph section which, when you look at the aleph. It's the letter the first letter of that of the Hebrew alphabet, which represents the number one and then you may know that that when we get to the cook that that letter stands for 100 like the unit is 10 and so is critical that you go from the aleph which is one to the unit which is 10 and now we get the letter Cook with the idea of 100 and so as we ended the verses in the aleph section. You might remember I will keep thy statutes was the way that that last verse was when I would pick up that idea again with letter cough with 100 where he says I cried with my whole heart.
Now that word cried there in Hebrew could easily be translated as I called with my whole heart because it is like the word that God used when he called the light day, and he called the darkness night or when he called Adam. You know the name Adam called Freeman that in the garden and when Adam called the animals by name that's in same word and then interestingly, when he says hear me oh Lord, that word here is the same thing is answered and so you could translated here that you can say that I cried and hear me. But here we also have the idea of calling her that I called on the name of the Lord and he answered me right. And so it's really cool that that word statutes that we talked about the hook in the high hard ones.
That letter, excuse me, that word is ahead. And then a cough with this idea of holiness of being close to God, so you know is kind of a neat thing to just process in your mind what is it look like when you cry out to God with your whole heart. When you call in the name of the Lord with your whole heart and wanting him wanting him to hear you wanting the answer you and that you're going to keep these commandments that are near and dear the hard ones that are that are impossible to keep but this is what you're asking to do and so you know I was at the National religious broadcasters convention last week and I saw a picture. This is just absolutely remarkable and I wanted to related because I think when you see this you get an understanding of why the the wisdom that's involved with this idea of growing close to God. In this way, when we cry with our whole hearts that we want to be able to keep these hard statutes that we really don't know how to do so on Mike Zwick. I do a radio show there with the he brought this young lady already said Robbie, this girl had been a man for seven years and I thought oh my goodness.
And so she had Booker wrote a book called transgendered and I had an opportunity to interview her and hear her horse whole story, which was more than miraculous. When you hear the end of this he I figured this can be absolutely delighted in what God did by the way your story when has everything to do with this verse. In my opinion that you know when she was younger. Her father was an alcoholic, distant, you know, not very close to in the family in any way, but she wasn't abusive but just distant and her mother was a bit of a critical and hard to get along. What to some extent, but her older brother was an athlete in the mean of the star of the family, and he got all the attention and so young. She became intensely jealous and wanted to be like him and that you know he was the man and he could she could see that that was something better than what she had in her life and then as she entered her early teen years.
Unfortunately, some boys took advantage of her needing to be loved and took advantage of her and then treated her horribly and the picture of this bad situation and she thought, you know, if I was a man I would never treat a girl like this and so she made a vow that she would be the man and so she came of age. She really went all out to be a man. She literally had her breast removed. She removed her ovaries. She started taking male hormones.
She grew a beard. She had a partner I mean she was a man in her name was Laura, but she changed her name to Jake and so she became a full-fledged man had a partner. This was the way she was living a beautifully and wonderfully.
Her mother came to Christ and when her mother came to Christ. It was a real transformation and she became a beautiful, gracious mother, who loved Jacobs by the fact that Shaikh was now a man in beautiful ways and you know encouraged him and and loved on him essentially no longer critical, but now finding ways to encourage Jake as she came to Christ and then she saw that Jake was good on the computer and so she said Jake can you help me with my Bible study and and so Jake began to help her with her Bible study with her mother with her Bible study she started to read the Bible and next thing you know you know what God's word never comes back void. She falls in love with Christ and so Jake becomes a Christian really did it in a man's body to that extended to do with the way was going on at that point on and you know like God says you know I'll catch him and mean and then you know will clean up, so she came to Christ in this state, but then you know she kept drawing closer and closer. Her cry was God.
You know, teach me your statutes right, I will keep your statutes well. After two years of giving herself to Christ in becoming more Christlike in the Holy Spirit working on her become in the image of her son of his son. One day she said Jesus I just want to give you everything you want to give you everything and he said to her. Can you give me back my creation and then he said you know what I called you and she knew in her heart that he did not call her Jake, but he called her Laura and and so over the next coming months. She said it was hard to face.
It was really painful. Her memories as a woman were very painful but she pushed back into that quick taking the hormones she grew her hair back out and and she became Laura again in every way shape or form that she can become Laura and walking with Christ and actually joined the transgendered ministry to help other people with sexual orientation than and comforting others with the way that she's been comforted, but I want you to think about what she did when she said, Lord, I want to give you everything I want to be all that you want me to be, you know, when we open our hearts to that secret door that we he can have every other part was, but he can have that that is the look of Matt's that place that's hard to get to and when we call on the name of the Lord. We cry out right here. Our prayers help us to go that place we can go right and and that's just the full picture of what was almost saying here as we enter into this idea of holiness is everything in my opinion time that holograms would get as close to him
