“Today is eighteen days, which are two weeks and four days of the Omer.”

·       Theme of the Week: Tefreit - Beauty
·       Theme of the Day: Netzach - Victory
·       Overall Theme: The Victory of His Beauty
·       Psalm 119:136-144

Remember Yesterday when I said that a Messenger could look like Quasimodo, but if he brought good news that everyone was waiting for that he’d look like a beauty queen in their eyes?

II Kings  7:3-11 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die? If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine [is] in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die. And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, [there was] no man there. For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, [even] the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it [was], and fled for their life. And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid [it]; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence [also], and went and hid [it]. Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day [is] a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king's household. So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, [there was] no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they [were]. And he called the porters; and they told [it] to the king's house within.

Well, in this passage hideous looking lepers, despite themselves and their banished ailment, became beautiful messengers that brought a message of victory to the people.

The Traditional text to read is Psalm 119:136-144:

137     ¶ TZADDI. Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.
138     Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.

The Torah comes from God who is Righteous, therefore the Torah is Righteous and True.

139     ¶ My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

David will go crazy without God’s Torah in his life.

140     ¶ Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

Not only is the Torah Righteous, but Pure too. Since it is the very Words of God, it embodies all He is.

141     ¶ I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.

Though David is king he sees himself as the low man on the totem pole and even if he had to clean the crappers in the palace he would still keep the Torah.

142     ¶ Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

Hmmm, the Torah is not only Righteous, Pure, but it IS TRUTH. The very answer Pilate was seeking from Yeshua (John 18:38)!

143     ¶ Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.

In the midst of the trials of life it is Torah that makes and keeps him happy and give him true pleasure.

144     The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.

He is saying that since the Principles and Morals behind the events in the Torah are True and eternal and they give life, he wants to know them inside and out, fully!

“Abba ADONAI God, help and enable me to conquer my fears and spread the good news so that victory may be available to all mankind. In Yeshua’s Name I pray, Ameyn.”
