OUR BIBLICAL MANDATE AND MISSION...

To provide Biblical encouragement for your walk and for your witness, inspired by Hebrews 3:13...

"But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin." 

"Welcome to The Teaching Room, where God speaks, and we listen, we learn, we live His unchanging Word through the power of the Holy Spirit."

Rev. Darren

 

 

CURRENT TEACHING ROOM BIBLE STUDY

Psalm 119: For The Love Of Scripture! 

Psalm 119:1-8

*STUDY POINT: As you read through Psalm 119, keep track of every instance of the word “blessed” and write down what the psalmist desired or did to be blessed.

Psalms 119:1

(KJV) ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.

(NIV) Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD.

Beloved, if you still believe that memorizing Scripture is an activity reserved for kids in Sunday School, let this teaching series on Psalm 119 rekindle your zeal for hiding God’s Word in your heart!

Psalm 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

The three pillars for memorizing Scripture relate to engaging our senses so that our minds have more than one way to retrieve verses when we need them. It is true that the Holy Spirit will give us the Word in the very moment we need it, but this Word must be already hidden in our hearts for the Holy Ghost to retrieve:

Luke 12:11-12 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Keep in mind that all through Biblical history, the Torah was memorized and transmitted orally as one person spoke it aloud repeatedly to the next. Speaking the Torah one to another is still practiced in the Holy Land today, yet in our North American church, we have wandered away from oral transmission and aural intake of Holy Scripture. Since God has brilliantly arranged Scripture for our ease of memorization, let’s honour Him by obeying His exhortation to remember Scripture:

Psalm 119:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

We now consult our dear brother and memory expert Tom Meyer, who spent much time learning memorization with teachers and lay people in the Holy Land. Very simply, we can learn and apply the three pillars of memorization that are rooted in three of our five senses:

VISUAL: Read the Word and take repeated mental snapshots of it.

AURAL: Hear the Word by speaking it repeatedly or listening to someone else speak it.

TACTILE: Write the Word out repeatedly. While we write out the Word, we can see it, speak it, and hear it - all in one sitting. How exciting! Let’s get started today.
