DELIGHT in the LAW of the LORD

 

Psalm 1:1-3

King James Version

1 Blessed is the man 

that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, 

nor standeth in the way of sinners, 

nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 

and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree 

planted by the rivers of water, 

that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 

his leaf also shall not wither; 

and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.


Within the same day God made me born again, I started reading the Bible.

Where the thickness of the BOOK once intimidated me, I now hungered for what it may tell me about God.

When you're not born again, you'll feel intimidated, and possibly not knowing where to start.

Once you're born again, the HOLY SPIRIT starts teaching you.

And all become clear.

You will also feel the POWER of GOD's WORD, the MAGNIFICENCE of the MINISTRY of JESUS, and the SACREDNESS of SCRIPTURE.

And you will want to live by GOD's WORD.

Thus, this blog.

But let us have the WORD of GOD speak to us -- through these verses.

Deuteronomy 13:3-4

King James Version

3 Thou shalt not hearken 

unto the words of that prophet, 

or that dreamer of dreams

for the Lord your God proveth you, 

to know whether ye love the Lord your God 

with all your heart and with all your soul.

4 Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, 

and fear him, 

and keep his commandments, 

and obey his voice, 

and ye shall serve him, 

and cleave unto him.


Job 23:12

King James Version

12 Neither have I gone back 

from the commandment of his lips; 

I have esteemed the words of his mouth 

more than my necessary food.


Psalm 19:7-8

King James Version

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, 

converting the soul: 

the testimony of the Lord is sure, 

making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, 

rejoicing the heart: 

the commandment of the Lord is pure, 

enlightening the eyes.


Psalm 119:97

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.


Matthew 22:29

King James Version

29 Jesus answered 

and said unto them, 

Ye do err, 

not knowing the scriptures, 

nor the power of God.


John 1:1

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.


John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us, 

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.


Romans 3:20-24

King James Version

20 Therefore by the deeds of the law 

there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: 

for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law 

is manifested, 

being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22 Even the righteousness of God 

which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all 

and upon all them that believe

for there is no difference:

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;

24 Being justified freely by his grace 

through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:


Romans 10:16-17

King James Version

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. 

For Esaias saith, 

Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, 

and hearing by the word of God.


1 Corinthians 15:1-4

King James Version

15 Moreover, 

brethren, 

I declare unto you the gospel 

which I preached unto you

which also ye have received, 

and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved

if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, 

unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all 

that which I also received, 

how that Christ died for our sins 

according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, 

and that he rose again the third day 

according to the scriptures:


2 Corinthians 4:2

King James Version

2 But have renounced 

the hidden things of dishonesty, 

not walking in craftiness, 

nor handling the word of God deceitfully

but by manifestation of the truth 

commending ourselves to every man's conscience 

in the sight of God.


Galatians 3:22

King James Version

22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, 

that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ 

might be given to them that believe.


Galatians 3:23-26

King James Version

23 But before faith came, 

we were kept under the law

shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster 

to bring us unto Christ, 

that we might be justified by faith.

25 But after that faith is come, 

we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

26 For ye are all the children of God 

by faith in Christ Jesus.


1 Thessalonians 2:13

King James Version

13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, 

because, 

when ye received the word of God 

which ye heard of us, 

ye received it not as the word of men, 

but as it is in truth, 

the word of God, 

which effectually worketh also in you 

that believe.


2 Timothy 3:14-15

King James Version

14 But continue thou 

in the things which thou hast learned 

and hast been assured of

knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child 

thou hast known the holy scriptures, 

which are able to make thee wise unto salvation 

through faith which is in Christ Jesus.


2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


Hebrews 13:9

King James Version

9 Be not carried about with divers 

and strange doctrines. 

For it is a good thing that the heart be established 

with grace

not with meats, 

which have not profited them 

that have been occupied therein.


James 1:21-23

King James Version

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness 

and superfluity of naughtiness, 

and receive with meekness the engrafted word, 

which is able to save your souls.

22 But be ye doers of the word

and not hearers only, 

deceiving your own selves.

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, 

and not a doer, 

he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:


Revelation 1:1-3

King James Version

1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, 

which God gave unto him, 

to shew unto his servants things 

which must shortly come to pass

and he sent and signified it by his angel 

unto his servant John:

2 Who bare record of the word of God, 

and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, 

and of all things that he saw.

3 Blessed is he that readeth, 

and they that hear the words of this prophecy, 

and keep those things which are written therein: 

for the time is at hand.


Revelation 22:18-19

King James Version

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth 

the words of the prophecy of this book, 

If any man shall add unto these things, 

God shall add unto him 

the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away 

from the words of the book of this prophecy, 

God shall take away his part 

out of the book of life, 

and out of the holy city, 

and from the things 

which are written in this book.
