“Today is twelve days which are one week and five days of the Omer.”
· Theme of the week: Gevurah – Severity and Strength
· Theme of the day: Hod - Glory
· Overall Theme: “The Glory of His Severity and Strength.”
· Psalm 119:89-96
I mentioned earlier how light is an allusion to glory and this past week we have been focusing on the severity and strength of ADONAI and how even in this attribute of Yah, His Beauty, Victory and Love can be seen through it. Well, today we will read about His future Glory.
Rev. 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Have you ever met someone whose presence lit up a room? Well, God’s Presence will light up all eternity!
The traditional text to read is Psalm 119:89-96:
89 ¶ LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
The Torah IS ETERNAL, it WILL NOT be done away with or replaced by another.
90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.
The Torah is relevant and timeless.
92 ¶ Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
The Written Torah is David’s Yeshau (Salvation) for HE knows the Living Torah, the Messiah will come from the Written Torah.
93 ¶ I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.
Again the Torah gives life when one keeps it, not death, death comes through disobedience to it.
94 ¶ I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.
David knows there is Righteousness that comes by Faith, but He also knows that your righteous works through the Torah backs up the faith of your heart.
95 ¶ The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.
When David gets fearful and discouraged He will remember through the Words of the Torah what God miraculously done for Israel.
96 ¶ I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.
David is saying that he sees the end of every perfection, every purpose in this finite world, but that the Torah is eternal, it has no end.“Abba ADONAI God, I am dumbfounded and awestruck at Your Omnipotence, Your unfathomable power, how You have no beginning and no end. All I can do is praise You as I bask in the Strength of Your Glory. In Yeshua’s Name Ameyn.”
