Good Morning, Good Afternoon and/or Good Evening wherever you are. This is Rev Essie of New Birth Ministries and I am glad that you are listening today. I pray that your day is blessed and if it doesn’t seem to be going that way…..Bless it yourself! God lives in you. He gave you His Power so use it! Today the topic is “Mem and Nun – Psalm 119:97-112, ” Get your Swords, a drink and a snack, and maybe a tablet and pen and sit back and I’ll be back to delve into this subject right after this.

(SONG: .)

{PRAYER} Add Lori McCoy’s mother Della Smith. and Susan Zubic as well.

Let’s turn our swords to Psalm 119, verses 97 to 112. As I have stated before when expounding on Resh and Schin, I believe about a year ago, one can see that Psalm 119, which is said to be the longest chapter in the entire bible, is comprised of 176 verses in 8 increments each. In most of your bible versions you will see that every 8 verses has a title. They are named after the Hebrew alephbet (alphabet) starting with Aleph and ending with Tau which is the sign of the Cross, the letter “T,” the representation of the nails that was used on our Savior over 2000 years ago. Every Section has a label that you can use when you are experiencing some type of trouble in your life. One is for when you need the power of harmonic rhythm, another is good for if you are experiencing a time of war in your life of afflictions, needing healing, and so on and so on.
Today we will be looking at verses 97-112 entitled Mem and Nun. Even in my E-Sword digital bible that I use on my Mac, it has the titles of each section labeled for our personal use.

Psa 119:97  MEM. O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.
Psa 119:98  Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
Psa 119:99  I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
Psa 119:100  I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
Psa 119:101  I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
Psa 119:102  I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.
Psa 119:103  How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psa 119:104  Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
Psa 119:105  NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psa 119:106  I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
Psa 119:107  I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.
Psa 119:108  Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
Psa 119:109  My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
Psa 119:110  The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.
Psa 119:111  Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
Psa 119:112  I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.

The writer starts out telling our Father how he loves His Law and meditates on it all day. He is letting God know that his mind is stayed on Him and nothing in this World interests him to the point of being led astray. There are many things in this world that can dangle in front of our faces to lead us astray. The enemy is slicker than we think. God made him first and Lucifer saw more things that God did than most likely any other angel in the 3rd Heavens. he was the Praise and Worship angel and we all know that Praise and Worship precedes, or should precede every battle, amen. This scripture shows us how to be victorious over the devil’s wiles and how to keep our minds stayed on Jesus. He doesn’t mention his job, his family, his land, his parents, children or siblings. He meditates on the Word of God all day in some kind of way. Sitting at your job thinking about God is meditating. Driving in your car looking at the beauty all around you that God created for you to enjoy is meditating. We CAN take care of our business and have God on our minds at the same time! In fact, put Him first and He will direct your path.
What is God’s Law? God’s Law is … His Word, studying and concentrating upon His Word, His concepts and precepts. Remembering what the bible entails and the lessons to be learned. After all, this is Old Testament and there were many lessons for Israel to learn in the Word. There are stories about their beginning, the mistakes that they made that caused them to constantly be captured, the times that they turned their backs on God and the enemy got in took over their Peace. That still happens today. We forgot to keep God on our minds, His ways and to do HIS Will and the enemy steps in and wreaks havoc in our lives. Yet there are many who get upset with God and they ask, “Why are YOU allowing THIS to happen to me?” It is not God’s fault that they became double-minded and forgot right from wrong and tried to live a luke-warm life. We all know what God says in Revelation about luke-warm people. We have to be held accountable for our actions.

Psa 119:98  Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

Are you wiser than your enemies or are you constantly struggling through life wondering where God is when your enemies show up unannounced and uninvited? It’s simple, if you don’t read the Word you will NOT be wise. Some people read the Word as though it is a basic romance novel and some read romance novel’s and newspapers, online news and happenings more than they read the Word of God that can save them out of all their troubles! Social Media is NOT a study guide for life!!!!!
I have a question for you, are you an Overcomer? How hard or easy is it for you to not only ‘get out’ of trouble but ‘stay out’ of trouble? If we research this subject, I believe that we will find that many, if not all, of the people who constantly get into trouble either give God not too much time at all, or they practice deception and witchcraft so much that they could care less of the outcome OR what God thinks about their actions. That my friend is selfishness and stubbornness. And that is where we are today in this Nation and in the entire world, selfishness, and non-repentance. Look at the people who are going to jail and will not repent of their wicked ways. Being wiser than your enemies is not just wiser than the guy down the street or someone who doesn’t like you, it’s being wiser than the demons who are crafting up something slick to trap you in. Being wiser than you used to be when liquor, drugs or pornography took over your common sense. Remember, it’s NOT the people who are fighting against you, it’s evil spirits who test and try you every day to make you look bad before your Father, family and friends. Study those who are constantly in trouble of some kind. You will find that the word, “outcome” never enters their minds when they are about to do their own will instead of the Father’s Will. And they all were under some type of ‘influence’ when they thought that mess up and acted upon it. Outside influences will get you into trouble every time. That’s why DUI’s are what they are, “driving under the influence.” Influence of what? Who? God? I think not. It’s driving under those ‘spirits’ that were in that bottle that took over your mind, heart and body when you took that first sip. When people are about to rob someone or rape someone, abuse children, get high, get drunk or steal something, they could care less about what will happen next. See? Spiritual influence. If their minds would be stayed on the Word, they would know that it is evil influences that are trying to sway them from their paths. The devil tells us that serving God is corny or boring. The ones who fall from Grace are the ones who listened to the wrong voice and were not wiser than their enemies of which the bible says “who are forever with me (us.)” If your enemy is forever with you, wouldn’t you WANT to keep your mind on the Word (who is actually Jesus in print anyway?) Yes! This means that every day of your life, you are going to have some type of challenge that you must conquer. The devil doesn’t rest my friend.

Psa 119:99  I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
Psa 119:100  I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
Psa 119:101  I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
Psa 119:102  I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.

The writer says that he has more understanding than all his teachers – pause – because he has studied the Word and the testimonies, lessons and experiences has been his teacher. When you study God’s Word, you should NOT make the same mistakes as the actors in it did. Go the other way my friend! Go the other way! When a wicked woman tries to tempt you away from your wife, go the other way like Joseph did from Potiphar’s wife. Don’t accept the temptation like David did and make your child pay for your moment of lust! When God tells you to preach the Word or ‘go tell’ His people something, don’t get swallowed up in a whale of a situation because you don’t like the people that He wants you to speak to! Ask Jonah. When God saves you from Egypt, don’t go back but remember the Promised Land. Reading the Word gives you understanding. Once you see the {outcome} of the lives of those in the bible, you shouldn’t want the same outcome as them! They are your teachers. Be wiser in your decisions. Don’t follow the same path down the stream as the other fish, go the other way and save yourself. Swim upstream. Did you know that Salmon, Coho and Trout swim upstream? And they are some of the best fish in the World. People pay high fees to be able to fish for them. Do people pay some type of high ‘fee’ for you or are they stealing from you? Are you worth a good man’s time? Do you understand more than the ancients (The Bible) or are you just repeating what you’ve learned in this life from Tv, radio, music, religious pastors, college buddies, drunken and highed-up family and/or friends? Have you refrained your feet from every evil way or do you just blend in? I don’t want to blend in, I want to please the Lord, keep His judgements and do what He taught me and not my own thing. I’ve made too many mistakes to remain the same ol’ sinning Essie that I used to be. It wasn’t cute and hurt my kids probably in ways unknown. Many people would be too proud to admit this but, I see in my own life where my children are paying for my earlier decisions. If you take a good look at yourself as the old song says, you will see where your downline is paying for some of your bad decisions. Did your children inherit you and your partners or partner-at-that-time(s) evil ways or habits? Do they want to get high and drunk too now? Do they want to lie or rob innocent people? Do they disrespect their elders? Are they taking so many selfies that they don’t have time for the Word? Are they vain? You see it every day. When is the last time that you saw them taking a selfie in church or reading the bible or praying? Forgive me for saying all of that but it’s true. If we take a good look at our lives, we will see the same ‘bad habits’ we will call them as those that we had when we were young. What is a bad habit? A demon, point blank. This what is is called, a “generational curse.” We need to break those generational curses that are actual evil soul ties, chains about ours and our children’s necks. I break them right now in Jesus name! And satan really enjoys swaying preachers kids. Oh he likes that. We preachers have the hardest time trying to preach the Word to others and still try to maintain a healthy balance in our own homes. Especially with Facebook, Instagram and other social media being out there. The first thing people say is, “Have you seen their kids’ pages lately???” And it’s normal for them to say that especially since the Word gives us the typical example of Eli’s Sons who messed up his ministry. They were wack, pardon the expression. They put that man through hell and ruined his ministry. They brought prostitution, and every other bad ‘influence’ into the ministry. See 1st Samuel 2:12-36 for that lesson. In fact, check out how it starts: 1Sa 2:12  Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.
Who else ‘knew not the Lord?” Evil kings of the bible. Someone once said every 13th king but I will have to study up on that one. Maybe that was where 13 got it’s bad name from. KNOW your Father, your Deliverer and your personal Teacher. Know God.

Psa 119:103  How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psa 119:104  Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

The Word should be sweet to us. We should want to study it. We must make sure that we haven’t replaced it with anything else. Go back to our first love amen? Put the Word first. As verse 104 states, we should hate falsehood, fake-ness, energy vampires, thieves of our own soul. The trouble with this world today is that we don’t hate false ways anymore. People make God ‘too complicated’ and they search for easier ways to get spiritual education. There are so many false religions out there and some of the ones that you think are real are false as well. Be careful of the wolves in sheeps clothing. No matter how “typically churchy” or beautiful some churches look or how sweet the Pastor seems to be, if they still have religious ways, such as not believing in tambourines or tongues, they are false. I once went to a well known church in my area who sent a deacon up to me while the service was going on to tell me to stop playing my tambourine. I never went back. See? Religion. Communion is only supposed to be on the 1st Sunday. False. Jesus said, “as many times as you do this, remember me.” He didn’t say, “Only remember me on 1st Sundays.” Preachers with their clothes so tight you can count the wrinkles, or their podium is clear so that you can see what they are wearing more than what they are preaching. The Pastor rears back to reveal that he wears boxer shorts, or if it’s a female, she has her blouse down so low and her skirt up so high that she looks like an actress from a steamy story instead of a preacher. And they sit down with one leg crossed over the other, showing that one thigh, yes, that ONE thigh as though they are guests on the Ellen show. There is more to serving God than Choirs and Candles and Clothes. If they have anyone sitting in their pews who is behind on their bills, someone is not doing their job. Jesus and the disciples sold all that THEY had and put it in the pot and whenever someone needed something, they told Judas, (yes Judas) to go buy whatever they needed. Did you know that?

Psa 119:105  NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
The Word should light your way, show you the way to go in this life, be your spiritual guide and not one of these New Era Spiritual guides that people call themselves having. People are following demonic activity and don’t have enough of God’s Wisdom in them to know that it’s the devil and not God telling them what to say and what to do. God’s leading is sweet yes, but it also reproves and corrects. People are so gullible and silly now a day that they get mad at the preacher and the whole time, the Holy Spirit is speaking to them! They are rejecting the leading of the Holy Spirit. What does that tell you? Humans are heading down a horrible path. The path to a hot place where some will burn for a while, some will burn for eternity and some may even burn quickly to disintegration.

Psa 119:106  I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
No matter what happens in your life, turn your eyes to Jesus and keep his righteousness in your heart. Don’t call yourself ‘stepping out’ for just a while because ‘just a while’ can easily become an eternity of heat and hatred.

Psa 119:107  I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.

Every day of your life, expect the unexpected. Don’t get caught off guard. The enemy goes around AS a roaring lion seeking who he MAY devour. Notice the words “AS” and “MAY.” he can’t do it to everyone especially those who are geared up, caught up, amped up and revved up in Jesus. Are you revved up? Don’t get ready….BE ready!

Psa 119:108  Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
Psa 119:109  My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
Psa 119:110  The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.
Psa 119:111  Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
Psa 119:112  I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.

Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love! 

Num 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26  The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Thank you for coming on today and I pray that your week goes by Victoriously! 
Rev Essie signing off! God bless and have a great day!
