Assertiveness is awesome!
Last night as I was falling to sleep, I heard the words “Ass…
Are we the perverse Generation?
Acts 2:40 – 40 And with many other words did he testify and …

Recently the Lord has shown me the number 600 so clearly in my sleep that I couldn’t even forget it upon awakening. It’s been a couple of weeks since that dream/vision but His Word and Instruction remains true regardless of time.
Upon doing some research on this number I found that it represents Mem with the pictograph being a small window with the top right edge folded down a bit. This indicates an opening made for blessings to pour down from the Heavens. The window was not just a man-made window made to look out of but with an opening in order that one may receive.
My studying for the past 27+ years has revealed to me that Mem is one of the titles in Psalm 119. Psalm 119 is made up of 22 sections of 8 verses each.
Each section is labeled with a Hebrew letter, a total of 22 letters, with the word of each letter spelled out. It depends on which type of bible that you are using. Most have it in them.
The section “Mem” makes up the verses of Psalm 119:97-104 which are very inspiring and says the following:
97 MEM.”O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.
98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are
100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.
103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.”
After carefully reading what the Lord had already told me to read through my dreams, I now see that God is telling me where I am in this stage of my life. I praise Him for teaching me and being my Shepherd and Guide. I refuse to listen to anyone else. I’ve learned to take the good from anything and discard the bad. “Eat the meat and spit out the bones” as the elders say.
It takes true maturity to be able to do so. The Lord has brought me a mighty long way. As the scripture reveals, I will always have enemies. They will never go away. We all just need to learn how to handle them when they flare up around us.
If you are seemingly bombarded by negativity, learn to enquire of the Lord as David did in the scriptures. If you notice, every time David enquired of the Lord he did good and when he did not, as in his case with the married woman, Bathsheba, he sinned. Do not sin by doing things on your own accord. Ask God everything. In fact get used to the way that He answers you and learn to enjoy it. Sometimes God answers me so oddly that I have to smile and slightly giggle at how He shows His love toward me especially when I don’t deserve it. Watching our Father in Heaven work will put a smile on your face. Don’t get too caught up in the winning though because you have to remember that those that you just won over are souls as well.
Pray for them. The disciples were overjoyed when they learned to rebuke demon spirits in the New Testament but Jesus told them not to glory in that fact but to be happy because their names were written in the Good Book in Heaven.
17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
What I’ve learned:
I’ve learned that I am in love with God’s Law and I meditate on it at every possible chance. God has given me His wisdom. I remain humble knowing that I cannot do anything without Him. Wisdom comes after accepting Jesus Christ and learning His ways and statutes. Verse 101, I chuckle on the number, putting it together as: “Wisdom 101″… this speaks of Holy Living.
Holy Living is required. Too many people are using the Grace Card, thinking that you can do anything and get away with it because Jesus died on the Cross. Actually, live as Jesus lived. He didn’t sin on purpose because He was about to die on the Cross and be forgiven. Jesus hated sin. He lived a “certain” way. We should do so also. Some even say that He studied with the Essenes for a while, which were a religious sect who stayed to themselves and lived Holy. Only Jesus can confirm that to us. I love the name of God which says, “Jehovah Tsidkenu” (The Lord our Righteousness.) Also, learn to love God’s Word for what it is: sweeter than honey and food for your soul. It is rest for your soul. It is instantaneous Wisdom if you would only soak it in and allow the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) to teach you what you need to know.
Lastly, learn also what the King likes as Esther did with the King of Persia when she was chosen Queen. Learn that your King hates every false and evil way. When something is wrong and goes against God’s way, feel free to say so and turn your back to it. Jesus did not condone wrong. He rebuked it.
God bless and have a great day,
Rev. Esther R. Scott
