Blessed

Psalms 1:1-3
1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the
counsel of the ungodly,
or stand in the path of sinners,
or sit in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is
in the law of the LORD,
and in his law he meditates
day and night.
3 And he will be like a tree
planted by the rivers of water,
that brings forth its fruit in its season
and whose leaf does not wither.
And whatever he does will prosper.

1:1 The word “blessed” is the translation of a Hebrew word meaning happy or fortunate. For a fuller idea of the meaning of the word in the Psalms see 2:12; 32:1-2; 40:4; 41:1-2; 65:4; 84:4-5; 94:12; 106:3; 119:1-2; 128:1. For other references and notes on God’s blessing or on “blessed” see Gen 12:2-3; Num 6:22-27; Deut 28:3-14; Jer 17:7; Matt 5:3-12; Luke 11:28; Acts 3:26; Gal 3:9, 14; Eph 1:3. God is love (1 John 4:8), and loves to bless men. But the fullness of God’s blessing comes only on a certain kind of person, as described in the words which follow.
This opening verse contains a brief description of what this fallen world is like. On every hand are those who will give evil advice and instruction contrary to the Word of God, men who reject God’s way and abandon themselves to sin, and those who scorn the truth of God. The blessed person will not listen to them or have fellowship with them. Notice a progression of wickedness in this verse – counsel, way, seat – walking, standing, sitting. Following bad advice brings a person into sinful ways, and eventually into scorn for the things of God. (The New Testament sh byows believers where they “sit” and how they are to “stand” and “walk” – Eph 2:6; 6:11, 14; Col 2:6.)

1:2 This verse shows the connection between true blessedness and a love of the truth God has revealed. The blessed person will not merely avoid wrong words and wrong ways. He will be occupied with something else altogether, as the two strong words “delight” and “meditate” reveal. To delight in God’s law is to delight in God and in God’s ways and will that are revealed in it. This will bring joy to the heart as nothing else can. Compare 37:4. For an example of a man delighting in the law of the Lord see Psalm 119.
The Hebrew word translated here “law” could be translated “instruction” or “teaching”, and here means all the revelation God had given up to that time. To us now it would mean the whole Bible. Men can find true blessedness only through the truth of God, and they will learn far more of it in the Bible than in all the writings of wise men, religious teachers, and philosophers put together. And they will experience this blessedness in the measure that they delight in God’s Word, and meditate on it, and obey it.
Notice the words “day and night”. This means to be always occupied with God’s revealed truth, to have it filling our hearts and minds even as we go about the ordinary activities of life. Compare John 15:7; Col 3:16. If we delight in it we will not find this at all impossible.

1:3 Here are the results of delighting in and meditating on God’s instructions – spiritual provision, unceasing fruitfulness, and success. The righteous are trees planted by God – Isa 60:21; 61:3; Jer 17:8; Matt 15:13. They are planted by “streams of water”. In the Bible water is sometimes used as a symbol of God’s Spirit, and God is said to be the “spring of living water” (Jer 2:13; 17:13). Just as water is essential for the life of trees, so God’s Spirit is essential for the life and fruitfulness of God’s people. The believer who delights in God’s truth and meditates on it continually, will find that he is by the source of all blessing, that God’s Spirit is around him and in him. Compare John 7:37-39.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Jesus became sin for us

2Corinthians 5:21(RKJV).
For HE made HIM WHO knew no sin to be sin for us, so that in HIM we might become the righteousness of GOD.

HERE ARE FOUR GREAT TRUTHS.

One, CHRIST was sinless (John 8:46; Heb 4:15; 7:26; 1 Pet 2:22; 1 John 3:5).

Two, GOD made HIM to be sin – that is, GOD laid the sin of the world on HIM and CHRIST bore the guilt and penalty of it. GOD counted HIM as if HE were sin. Every sin of man, all that is brutal and perverted and vile and corrupt and every other kind of sin was put to the account of the HOLY SON of GOD (think of it!).

Third, this was “for us” (v 14; 1 Pet 3:18; 1 John 4:10). GOD put our sins to CHRIST’S account so that HE might not have to leave them in our account.

Fourth, GOD’S purpose in this was that believers might become the righteousness of GOD in CHRIST. This speaks of justification (Rom 3:21-26), and of union with CHRIST (John 17:20-23; Rom 6:3-8; Eph 1:1, 4). CHRIST HIMSELF is the righteousness of GOD (1 Cor 1:30; Rom 3:21-24; Acts 3:14). Believers are united to HIM and so become righteous in HIM, and, in GOD’S reckoning, what CHRIST is before GOD believers also are.
Hallelujah!

Tongue the power of war.

You cannot fight the devil in the physical because he is a Spirit, you must create a Spirit or Spirits against him by your tongue.

If there is need to fight the devil with fire your tongue will create it, or if you want to use other weapons like Sword, Arrow, Hammer, and Brimstone against him, and your tongue will create them as you are praying. Though you may not see all the weapons and Spirits created by your tongue while praying, but I tell you the truth, they come alive as you pray with faith. You can only see the spiritual through the eyes of faith, you just need to believe and it will come to pass.

We create physical things with our hands and spiritual things with our tongue.
If you say to the blind receive your sight, it will be so if you doubt not. You can also tell the lame to arise and walk and he will do so if you doubt not.

word Alive.

Anytime the word spoken by man passes through the atmosphere, it produces pattern, which always last for years. The early scientist said that, every word spoken by man is registered in the atmosphere for six thousand years, while the bible says, “Men will give account of every spoken word remains till the day of judgment”.

Every word spoken by man remains in the atmosphere for as long as lifetime and it is easily readable by the spirit, both good and bad. When you proclaim an evil word against yourself, your Children, or somebody else the word is registered in the atmosphere serving as a command for the evil spirit to use in tormenting the person concern.

While proclaim good words on yourself and others serves as command for every good spirit to work on.

So care must be taken in the use of our tongue, not for cursing, abusing but for blessing.

Forgiveness

Bible Verses About Forgiveness – Read passages that offer biblical guidance on forgiveness and how important it is to forgive others as we have been forgiven by the blood of Christ.

The pain and hurt others cause us is real and great. But, the pain of living with bitterness and unforgiveness can poison your soul and destroy you.

Ephesians 4:31-32 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
