The other day, I was looking at this old (mini) lesson that a group of Israylites gave on Youtube. The teacher started the lesson out with this scripture:
Joshua (Yahoshua) 1:8, Keep this book of the law always on your lips. Meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Then the teacher read the following scripture to prove that the key to prosperity is meditating on Yah:
Psalm 1:1-3, Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers but whose delight is the law of the Most High and who meditates on His law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water which yields fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.
When the teacher was speaking here, I began to think about what Yahoshua said in Mattithyah 6:33, where He told us to seek the Kingdom of Yah first then all that we need or want will be added to (or given) to us. However, the key is meditating on Yah DAY AND NIGHT. We have to be on FIRE for Yah!! Remember Yahoshua said that He is going to vomit out lukewarm people in Revelation 3.
The teacher next went to Ezekiel (Yahezqyl) 1:1-3, when you meditate, you eat this scroll. Let it digest or meditate on it. Then the words will be sweet as honey to you. You will recite Yah’s words with great understanding.
Then the teacher began to talk about David. He read all six verses of Psalm 23. He showed that David went to green pastures and still waters to meditate on Yah. This reminded me also of when I read about Ezra going into the fields and eating flowers while fasting. Ezra meditated on Yah and Yah appeared before him (via an angel). David meditated the teacher said and he lacked nothing, his cup overflowed. Yah prepared a table for David to eat. Yah lead David, the teacher said. David did not worry about his needs or wants, I thought as the teacher explained this.
Luke 8:18 and Hebrews 2:1, the teacher said to pay attention to what you hear and to stay in this word and don’t drift away.
Mark 4:24, the more you listen (meditate) the more understanding you get from Yah, Yahoshua said.
Mattithyah 13:18-23, Yahoshua said the one that hears (meditates on Yah’s words) is given more and more understanding then he yields accordingly. This person becomes successful with a great harvest, Yahoshua said!! This goes along with what David said about a tree being planted near waters producing much fruit. The teacher talked about being fruitful.
The teacher began to talk about David again. He mentions how many times the words meditate and meditation are in the bible. He said that David is the prophet that mentioned meditate the most. David mentioned “meditate” nine times and “meditation” eight times in the Psalms! The teacher said that David knew something!! The key to success is meditation, says the teacher. The teacher left one last scripture about David.
Psalm 119:11, I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against You.
The teacher asked, why did David hide Yah’s word in his heart? The answer: David had Yah’s word hidden in his heart so satan could not get it. The teacher asked, how do you hide it? You meditate on it…day and night.
This was the last scripture:
1 Timothy 4:15 (KJV), Meditate upon these things. Give thyself wholly to them, that thy profiting may appear to all.
So when you have been meditating on the word of Yah, everyone will see it. You will be successful and prosperous! The title of this post was slick. Right? Did you think it was a prosperity doctrine teaching at first? Lol. Anyway, these are just notes that I took (paraphrased).
The other day, I was setting up my new aquarium. I put river rocks in my new tank instead of gravel. Some of the rocks have the fruits of the spirit on them from the bible like love, peace, faith, hope and others have dream, inspire, forgive etc. (I’m still looking for a rock with patience because I know that is something that I am working on). Anyway, I was explaining to my niece that Yah gives dreams. He inspires us. I told her about faith, love and hope and love being the greatest of these. I talked to her about forgiveness. She said the other day she was telling a family member that our people have been here almost 400 years. The family member told her, “Oh n0, I hope you aren’t going to talk to me about that bible stuff…again!” That made me burst into laughter. Yah’s people always have Yah on our minds and/or we are always speaking about Yah…day and night. I know you never get tired of reading the word of Yah too, because you are here at this blog right now reading about (meditating on) Yah. Shalom.
