Your word is a lamp to my feet
A light for my path.
Psalm 119 is the longest psalm in the Psalter and its main theme is ‘God’s word’ which for its author equals ‘Torah’. It has been noted that in the psalm “there are eight main words used for ‘torah’ . . . their English translations include: word, law, commandment, rules, decree, precepts, teaching . . .” (JSB p. 1415).
Perhaps the most notable thing about Psalm 119 after its emphasis on Torah, is the circumstances of change the author is living through. His enemies appear to be internal rather than external ones. He tells of a time before he was “humbled” and went “astray” but he had returned to God’s word, His Torah, and he lived and breathed God’s commandments. But now he was surrounded by the “arrogant”, “insolent” “wicked”, “men of divided heart”, “evildoers”, the “false and deceitful”, “persecutors and foes” and “traitors”, who continually tried to deviate his path from obeying God’s commandments, in his thought, word and deed. But the author had learned an enduring lesson from his previous deviation from obeying God’s Torah and he determined never to deviate from it again, even if it meant losing his life.
Today, many appear to be living in the same circumstances as the author of Psalm 119. They remain true to the precepts and commandments of the Lord in spite of living in a day and age that demands ‘faiths’ practice ‘universality’ and not ‘centrality’ in worship. The ‘world-is-a-melting-pot’ thesis is now applied generally to a world of ‘faiths’. However, the thesis is also applied rather more vigorously to some faiths than others – Christianity and Messianic Judaism currently have targets pinned on their ‘centrality’ of worship, and this is mainly because of their understanding and acceptance of a ‘triune’ God, who has declared and demonstrated His supremacy as the only God to be worshipped and obeyed, and this is of course the message they convey to the rest of the world in obedience to God’s word. This is not only anathema to many of the world’s other ‘faiths’, it is also an absolute no-no in a world gone mad with ‘political correctness’ (= tyrannical global reformation).
Of course, the problem is the ‘world-is-a-melting-pot’ thesis, a thesis concocted at the end of WWII when the Nazi empire crumbled in defeat and the ‘beast’ committed suicide. This thesis arose out of the demonic aftermath of the ‘beast’, who believed in breeding a ‘physically fit’ and ‘obedient’ ‘master race’. He created his own religion and church – ‘the National Reich Church’ – along with his own bible. He was the only ‘saviour’ and ‘master’ to be honoured. He got rid of the ten commandments and compiled twelve commandments of his own. He wrote his own version of a Lord’s prayer to be recited everyday by the Youth. His determination to rid the world of Semites, Christians, and others of various faiths was, in the end, to establish his own ‘universal’ non-religious religion. His plan was to first purge and ‘purify’ Germany, then Europe, followed by the rest of the world during the ‘thousand year reign of the Reich’. (1)
The ‘world-is-a-melting-pot’ thesis is an outright lie. We are each unique creatures of God and every culture has its own gifts to contribute to the House of the Lord. Yes, we are to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called – one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all” (Eph 4:3-6). But, dear Sheeples, this is the unity of the body of Christ that is being spoken about, not directions on how to comply in bringing about the unification of today’s multiple faiths in the non-religious ‘new world order’!
“Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Return to your first love.
The Lord is coming!
