“Food For Thought”
The priorities you cultivate during your good times should be of the kind that will sustain you during your “bad times” as well. If you are investing your time and energy in things that will prove futile when the climate of your life changes and will not hold you up when challenges come, you might want to re-examine your present choices. Why wait for the day you will have to say: “If I would have only realized…..” Consider יהוה’s Word in (Deuteronomy 28:12); comprehension of this requires a clear understanding of the words “hearken and voice.” Hearken in Hebrew is שמה (shâma’–SH# 8050), and means, “to listen”, “to obey”, understand, and hear intelligently. While “voice” is the Hebrew word קול (qowl–SH# 6963) and is described as a “proclamation”, proclamation is defined as a “decree”; and a decree is synonymous to “law”.
With these facts, we can conclude that the blessed seed are those that will hear intelligently to the laws of יהוה. To hear intelligently is to hear studiously, which means through study. Joseph was a workman who applied (2 Timothy 2:15).
(Ephesians 5:21-24) To hear through study means acquisition of knowledge, extensive study, and research about the laws of יהוה as taught by His Son, Yahushua. In addition, the blessed seed are also those who understand, listen to, and obey the laws of יהוה.
(Psalm 7:10) When we do these things, all blessings in (Deuteronomy 28:1-14) shall not only come on us, but they shall even overtake us. But, however, only if we diligently acquire knowledge, do extensive study, and protracted research of the laws of יהוה and, most of all, obey.
(Mark 13:33) As the blessed seed, we adhere to (Deuteronomy 16:10), because our freewill offering must be according as the Lord Yahushua, has blessed us, our Feast of Weeks freewill offering serves as an indication of how obedient we have been to His laws since the last Feast.
