“ Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. ” (Psalms 119:11). Why do we believe in memorizing the Scriptures? Well it says,”That I might not sin against thee”. Well this is certainly a main reason to memorize to help us to get close to Jesus, and God, and The Holy Spirit, The Trinity our Heavenly Family. Are you desperate for God? “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.” (Psalms 42:1). Memorizing scripture will help you to have good dreams. “For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, that he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.”(Job 33:14-18). Dreams come from the Multitudes of Business.
“For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.” (Ecclesiastes 5:3). When I can’t sleep I pray for everyone and everything that comes to me and then I review my verses on my bed and then I usually fall into a peaceful sleep unless the Lord puts in my heart to get up and write a teaching like this one at 2:15 AM for you. I like to put many scripture verses in these teachings so the sheep can be fed spiritually. “So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”(John 21:15-17). Jesus told Peter this 3 consecutive times. Feeding the Sheep is the way we show Jesus that we love him.
Start out with one to three verses a day. You can write them down on a 3 X 5 card and keep it in your pocket or around your neck and go over it every hour and at the end of the day you still may not have it down good yet, but by tomorrow morning when you wake up, you should have it down pretty good because it will be ingrained in your subconscious. Jesus said, “ Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you.” (John 15:3). The Word will clean your mind and Spirit and give you Faith. “ So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17).The Word will keep you on the right path, you may get lost off the path for a little while in the darkness, but you can always find your way back home because, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalms 119:105). So if you want to make Jesus happy and yourself, memorize. The Law of Memory is repetition, so review often so you don’t loose what you have memorized and get rusty. Don’t throw those 3 X 5 cards away, put them in a 3 X 5 card box to review and snack on. “Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.” (Job 23:12) Your not suppose live to eat, but to eat to live, get a good balance. Jesus wants you to memorize and review and he will bless you if you do. If you memorize this list of verses you should be able to answer most any question people ask you with the Word. “ but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” (1 Peter 3:15). Use healthy food, The A.K.J.V. You have just been given the key to a door that will open to you a New World of, Love Joy, Peace, Fun, and Faith and Power so God can mighty use you in these End Times. “And they that understand among the people shall instruct many:” (Daniel 11:33a). Remember in many Countries the Bible is outlawed and someday soon you might be in that situation, and the only Scriptures that you will have is what you have memorized. Remember the Words of our Lord Jesus Christ. “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (John 9:4).
