How was Hebrew thinking established?
How the Jews seriously worked on the Lord,
Why did the Jewish people remain as one people even after being away from Israel for thousands of years?
Let’s learn that secret.
The Secret Of Jews Who Have Acquired The Law Of Blessing
5 Ezra opened the book. All the people could see him because he was standing above them; and as he opened it, the people all stood up.
6 Ezra praised the Lord, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, “Amen! Amen!” Then they bowed down and worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground.
A secret is hidden in this verse.
Ezra(עזרה : Jehovah helps) was the high priest of Israel and he was the 16th descendant of Aaron The High priest.
A scholar is someone who has become “familiar with the law of Moses.”(Sohermaher סופר מהיר: Skillful Secret (Psalm 45: 1))
(Ezra 7: 6)
In the Hebrew language, a “Mahir” (secretary) is someone who memorizes the whole Bible.
Because Ezra had put all of the Bible into his memory, he was able to recall it and use it to create a seminary in the land of their captivity.

The action of standing is an act of respecting opponents.
Standing is an action that uses a little physical strength. However, in the Hebrew language, “standing” means “using the body” which means listening reciting, and reacting.
“The Word” is the Lord Jesus himself.
If you show respect to Jesus you will receive blessings from Him so that you can be a blessing to other people.
The Second Worshiping Act Using The Body Is To Say “Amen”
Amen(אמן) is a statement of consent that means, “It is the truth” or “I believe it” or “May it be like that!”
Christianity advocates saying Amen out loud. However, in Judea, Jewish people stand up, and raise their hands, and agree by saying, “Amen, Amen”.
When the mouth and ears are opened, then the heart opens, the heavens open, and the works of the Holy Spirit begins to move upon those who are present.
The Third Worshiping Act Is A Bowing Action
Specifically, the perfect posture of submission to the Lord it kneeling face down with the face between the knees and hands flat on the ground straight out, including the fingertips.
When Jewish people would praise the Lord they would raise their hands and say, “Amen, Amen” as they praised the LORD in peace while on the ground.
In this way, the Jews worshiped and gave thanks to the Lord with their body, their soul, and with their spirit. For Jewish people, they express their respect for The Word of the Lord Himself by actively using all of their body and all of their soul.
During the time of Ezra, people were educated only with the Word of God.
The people taught their descendants the words of God’s language (Hebrew)and also began to educate the people with God’s Word (Tefillin).
Naturally, when events in life happen, people’s thoughts, interpretations, reactions, and countermeasures are based on their infant experiences, memories, and words that have been engraved in their memories.
If that person’s memory is filled with negative and pessimistic words, then when things happen, only negative thoughts and negative reactions come out.
On the other hand, what will happen if a person’s memory is filled with the super-positive life-giving Word of God?
The Jews have received their education since they were in their mother’s womb.
Gentiles Seem To Know The Law Of Success, But They Do Not Actually Know
We, the Gentiles, were born into an environment without originally knowing God’s Word.
As such, we grew up not knowing that God our Creator has established universal laws that are written in His Word (The Bible). These written laws affect our lives because they affect our success and failure in everyday life.
If a person was unaware that God’s Word has written laws of success and failure that cannot be changed, then a person who is doing something that is in conflict with God’s Word will not be successful.
That person may curse and be hurt because things they want or expect are not happening.
The reason is because their lives and actions are contrary to God’s written laws of success and failure.
If we recite God’s Word and fill our hearts and minds with God’s Word, then our lives will become organized to the blessings written in God’s Word.
When we are filled with God’s living ways, then we will live full lives that are pleasing to the Lord and our plans will prosper.
Every thought, every judgment, and every evaluation in our lives must be lived according to God’s will.
The world was created by God’s Word, and all things are made up by the Law of His Word.
As Gentiles, the Western way of thinking is heavily influenced (negatively) by Hellenistic Thinking (Greek Thinking).
Hellenistic/Greek Thinking encourages evaluation, judgment, and criticism of all subjects,
For a Jewish person, the root of their thinking is the Word of God. The Word of God is the law of all things, it judges all things, it deals with all things, and it acts upon all things according to the words of the Bible.
Therefore, Gentiles can not be in conflict with God’s Word if they hope to be successful at anything.
The Jews succeeded even though they were scattered throughout many places in the world.
Due to the recitation of God’s Word and thorough the teaching of the recited Word to their children, the faith of the Jewish people persisted deeply even though they were displaced from their home country of Israel for 2,000 years.
Christian people, on the other hand, even though they kept evangelizing, they did not teach The Word of God to their children.
As a result, the faith of the people and the knowledge of God’s Words lowly disappeared.
Numerous religious revivals sprang up in all parts of the world and at various times in history, but because the Word of God was not taught to their children, the people’s faith in God would soon disappear.
Other Than Christianity, The Other Four Major Religions In The World Practice Recitation
Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism have survived because they recite.
However, since only Christianity does not recite, it has become a religion where people must continually fan their faith into flames so that it does not die out.
Now, it is time for us to return to the Hebrew way of thinking and living like in the apostolic days.
We need to return to the recitation of The Word of God.
