2 Chron.7:14--If My People who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and HEAL THEIR LAND.
Jere.24:6--For I will set My eyes on them for GOOD, and I will BRING THEM BACK to THIS Land; (Promise land?) I will BUILD THEM and NOT PULL them DOWN, and I will PLANT THEM and NOT PLUCK them UP. (7) Then I will GIVE them a HEART to KNOW ME, that I AM THE LORD: and THEY shall be MY PEOPLE, and I will be their God, for they SHALL RETURN TO ME WITH THEIR WHOLE HEART.) (Matt.22:37-- Jesus said to him, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, and with ALL YOUR SOUL, and with ALL YOUR MIND. (38) THIS is the FIRST and GREAT COMMANDMENT. (39) and the SECOND is LIKE IT: YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF. (40) ON these TWO COMMANDMENTS hang ALL the Law and the Prophets.)
2 Chron.7:14--If MY PEOPLE who are called by MY NAME (Is.51:16--And I have put MY WORDS in YOUR MOUTH; I have COVERED you WITH THE SHADOW of MY HAND, that I may PLANT the HEAVENS, LAY the FOUNDATIONS of the EARTH, and SAY to ZION, ‘YOU ARE MY PEOPLE.’) (Ps.48:1--GREAT is the LORD, and GREATLY to be PRAISED is THE CITY OF OUR GOD, in His HOLY MOUNTAIN. (2) Beautiful in elevation, THE JOY of THE WHOLE EARTH, is MOUNT ZION on the sides of the north, the CITY of THE GREAT KING. (3) God IS IN HER PALACES; He is known as HER REFUGE. (Skipping ahead to verse 12-WALK ABOUT ZION, and go all around her. Count her towers; (13) Mark well her bulwarks; consider her palaces; THAT YOU MAY TELL IT TO THE GENERATION FOLLOWING. (14) For THIS IS GOD, OUR GOD FOREVER and EVER; He will be OUR GUIDE even to DEATH.)
(Jere.51:25--Behold, I am AGAINST you, O DESTROYING MOUNTAIN, who DESTROYS ALL THE EARTH, “says the Lord. “And I will stretch out My hand AGAINST you, roll you down from the rocks, and make you a BURNT MOUNTAIN. (26) They shall NOT TAKE FROM YOU A STONE FOR A CORNER NOR A STONE FOR A FOUNDATION, but you shall be desolate forever, says the Lord.) (Is.28:16--Therefore thus says the Lord God: ‘BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION a STONE for a FOUNDATION, a TRIED STONE, a PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE, a SURE FOUNDATION; whoever BELIEVES will not act HASTILY.) (1 Peter 2:4--Coming to HIM as to a LIVING STONE, REJECTED INDEED BY MEN, but CHOSEN by GOD and PRECIOUS, (5) you ALSO as LIVING STONES, are being BUILT UP a SPIRITUAL HOUSE, A HOLY PRIESTHOOD, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (6) Therefore it is ALSO contained in the SCRIPTURE, ‘BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION a CHIEF CORNERSTONE, ELECT, PRECIOUS, and he who believes on HIM will by NO means be put to shame. (7) Therefore, to you who BELIEVE, He is PRECIOUS, but to those who are DISOBEDIENT, THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED HAS BECOME THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE.)
Acts 4:10--Let it be KNOWN to YOU ALL, and to ALL the people of ISRAEL, that by the name of JESUS CHRIST of NAZARETH, whom you CRUCIFIED, whom GOD RAISED FROM THE DEAD, by HIM this man stands here before you WHOLE. (11) THIS is THE STONE which was REJECTED BY YOU BUILDERS, which has BECOME the CHIEF CORNERSTONE. (12) NOR is there SALVATION in ANY OTHER, for there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven GIVEN AMONG MEN by which we must be SAVED.) (Acts 13:32--And we declare to you GLAD TIDINGS--that PROMISE which was made to the fathers, (Rom.4:13-For the PROMISE that he would be THE HEIR of the WORLD was NOT to ABRAHAM or to his SEED through the law, but through the RIGHTEOUSNESS of FAITH.)
(Gal.429--And IF your are Christ’s, THEN you are ABRAHAM’S SEED, and HEIRS according to the PROMISE.) (Returning to Acts 15:33--God has FULFILLED THIS for US their children, in that HE HAS RAISED UP JESUS. As it is ALSO WRITTEN in the SECOND PS. YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.) Ps. 2:6--Yet I have set My King on My HOLY HILL of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to Me, YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) ASK of ME and I will GIVE You, the NATIONS for Your INHERITANCE and the ENDS OF THE EARTH for Your POSSESSION.) (I believe this word right here found in the Second Ps. is a spiritual place where we can stand upon this word and ask God to do just that. For His words are spirit and they are life.) (John 6:63)
(Is.43:6--I will say to the NORTH, ‘give them up! And to the SOUTH, DO NOT KEEP THEM BACK! Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters from THE ENDS OF THE EARTH--(7) everyone who is CALLED BY MY NAME, whom I HAVE CREATED for MY GLORY; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.) (Is.40:5--The GLORY of the Lord shall be REVEALED, and ALL FLESH shall SEE IT TOGETHER; for the MOUTH of the LORD has SPOKEN. (6) The voice said CRY OUT! And he said, “WHAT SHALL I CRY? ALL flesh is GRASS, and all its loveliness is like THE FLOWER of the FIELD. (7) The grass WITHERS, the FLOWER FADES, because the breath of the Lord blows upon it. Surely the people are GRASS. (8) The GRASS withers, the FLOWER FADES, but THE WORD OF OUR GOD STANDS FOREVER. (9) O ZION, you who bring GOOD TIDINGS, get up into the high mountain; O JERUSALEM, say to the cities of JUDAH, “BEHOLD YOUR GOD!” ) (Heb.7:14--For it is EVIDENT that our Lord AROSE from JUDAH, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood. (17) For He testifies: YOU are a PRIEST FOREVER according to the order of MELCHIZEDEK.
Ps.110:1--The Lord said to my Lord, “SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, till I make Your enemies Your footstool. (2) The Lord shall send the ROD of Your STRENGTH out of ZION. RULE IN THE MIDST OF YOUR ENEMIES! (4) The Lord has SWORN and will NOT relent, YOU are a PRIEST FOREVER according to the order of MELCHIZEDEK.
1 Peter 1:22--Since you have purified your souls in obeying the TRUTH through THE SPIRIT in SINCERE LOVE of the BRETHREN, LOVE ONE ANOTHER FERVENTLY with a a PURE HEART, (23) having been BORN AGAIN, NOT of CORRUPTIBLE SEED but INCORRUPTIBLE, through THE WORD OF GOD which LIVES and ABIDES FOREVER, (24) because ALL FLESH is as GRASS, and all the glory of man AS THE FLOWER of the GRASS. The GRASS WITHERS, and its FLOWER FALLS AWAY, but THE WORD of THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER. Now THIS is THE WORD which by THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED TO YOU.) (Gal.3:8--And the SCRIPTURES FORESEEING that God would JUSTIFY THE NATIONS BY FAITH, preached THE GOSPEL to ABRAHAM BEFOREHAND, saying “IN you ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED.) (Ps.37:22--For those who are BLESSED by HIM shall INHERIT THE EARTH, but those who are CURSED by HIM shall be CUT OFF.) (Mark 1:14--Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, PREACHING THE GOSPEL of the KINGDOM OF GOD, (15) and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and THE KINGDOM OF GOD is at hand, REPENT, and BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL.) (Ps.22:27--ALL THE ENDS OF THE WORLD SHALL REMEMBER and TURN to the LORD, and ALL THE FAMILIES of the NATIONS shall WORSHIP BEFORE YOU. (28) For THE KINGDOM is THE LORD’S, and HE RULES OVER THE NATIONS.)
(Mark 1:1--The BEGINNING of THE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST, the SON OF GOD. (2) As it is written in THE PROPHETS. “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will PREPARE Your way before You. (3) The VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS: PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.) (Is.40:3--THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS: PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD; make STRAIGHT in the desert a HIGHWAY FOR OUR GOD. (4) Every valley shall be EXALTED, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; The CROOKED PLACES shall be MADE STRAIGHT, and the ROUGH PLACES SMOOTH; (5) The GLORY of the LORD shall be REVEALED, and ALL FLESH shall see it TOGETHER; for the MOUTH of the LORD has SPOKEN.) (Matt.3:3--For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS: PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.)
(Luke 1:68--Blessed is the Lord God of ISRAEL, for He has visited and REDEEMED HIS PEOPLE, (69) and has RAISED UP a HORN OF SALVATION for US in the house of His servant DAVID, (70) As He spoke by THE MOUTH of HIS HOLY PROPHETS, who have been since the world began, (71) That we should be SAVED from OUR ENEMIES and from the hand of ALL who HATE US, (72) To perform THE MERCY PROMISED TO OUR FATHERS and to REMEMBER HIS HOLY COVENANT, (73) The OATH which He SWORE to our father ABRAHAM; (74) To grant us that we BEING DELIVERED from the HAND of OUR ENEMIES, might serve him WITHOUT FEAR, (75) in HOLINESS and RIGHTEOUSNESS before Him ALL THE DAYS OF OUR LIFE. (76) And YOU CHILD, will be called THE PROPHET of THE HIGHEST; for YOU will GO BEFORE THE FACE OF THE LORD TO PREPARE HIS WAYS, (77) To GIVE KNOWLEDGE of SALVATION to HIS PEOPLE by THE REMISSION of their SINS, (78) Through the TENDER MERCY of OUR GOD, with which the DAYSPRING from on high has visited us; (79) To GIVE LIGHT to those who sit in DARKNESS and the SHADOW of DEATH, to GUIDE OUR FEET into the WAY OF PEACE.)
Is.52:7--How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of those who brings GOOD NEWS, who proclaims PEACE, who brings GLAD TIDINGS of GOOD THINGS, who proclaims SALVATION, who says to ZION, “YOUR GOD REIGNS!” (8) Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together; for they shall SEE EYE to EYE when THE LORD BRINGS BACK ZION. (Jere.3:14--RETURN, O backsliding children, say the Lord; for I AM MARRIED TO YOU. I will take you one from a city and two from a family, and I will BRING YOU TO ZION. (15) And I will give you shepherds ACCORDING TO MY HEART, who will FEED YOU with KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING.) (Returning to Is.52:10-The Lord has made bare His HOLY ARM in the eyes of ALL the NATIONS; and ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH SHALL SEE the SALVATION OF OUR GOD.)
(Rom.10:13--For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (14) How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom THEY HAVE NOT HEARD? And how shall they hear WITOUT A PREACHER? (15) And how shall they preach unless they are SENT? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, who bring GLAD TIDINGS of GOOD THINGS!”(16) But they have NOT all obeyed THE GOSPEL. For Isaiah says, Lord who has BELIEVED our REPORT?
(Is.52:1--Who has BELIEVED our REPORT? And to whom has the ARM of the Lord been REVEALED? (3) He is despised and REJECTED BY MEN, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, OUR FACES from HIM; (5) But HE was wounded for OUR transgressions, He was bruised for OUR iniquities; the chastisement for OUR PEACE was upon HIM, and BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED. (6) ALL WE LIKE SHEEP HAVE GONE ASTRAY: (Pro.14:22-Do they NOT GO ASTRAY, who DEVISE EVIL? But MERCY and TRUTH belong to those who DEVISE GOOD.) (Returning to Is.53:6--We have TURNED EVERY ONE, TO HIS OWN WAY; And the Lord has LAID ON HIM the INIQUITY of US ALL. (7) He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth. He was LED AS A LAMB to the SLAUGHTER, and AS A SHEEP BEFORE HIS SHEARERS IS SILENT. (8) He was TAKEN from PRISON and from JUDGMENT, and WHO WILL DECLARE HIS GENERATION? For HE WAS CUT OFF FROM THE LAND OF THE LIVING, for THE TRANSGRESSION of MY PEOPLE HE WAS STRICKEN.)
(Ps.7:6--ARISE, O Lord, in Your anger; lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies, and AWAKE FOR ME TO THE JUDGMENT YOU HAVE COMMANDED! (7) So the CONGREGATION of the PEOPLES shall SURROUND YOU; for their sakes, therefore RETURN on HIGH. (8) THE LORD SHALL JUDGE THE PEOPLES; Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to my integrity within me. (9) Oh, let the WICKEDNESS of the WICKED come to an END, but ESTABLISH the JUST; For the RIGHTEOUS GOD TESTS THE HEARTS and MINDS. (10) My DEFENSE is of GOD, who SAVES THE UPRIGHT IN HEART.) (Pro. 2:21--For THE UPRIGHT will DWELL in the LAND, and the BLAMELESS will REMAIN IN IT: (22) But the WICKED will be CUT OFF from the EARTH, and the UNFAITHFUL will be UPROOTED from it.) (2 Chron.7:14--If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, then I will HEAR from HEAVEN, and will FORGIVE their SIN and HEAL THEIR LAND.)
Eze.21:9,b--A sword, a SWORD is SHARPENED and also polished! (10) Sharpened to make a dreadful SLAUGHTER, polished to flash like lightning! Should we then make mirth? IT DESPISES THE SCEPTER of MY SON as it does ALL WOOD. (11) And He has given it to be polished, that it may be handled; This SWORD is SHARPENED, and it is polished to be given into the hand of the SLAYER. (12) Cry and wail, son of man; FOR IT WILL BE AGAINST MY PEOPLE, against all the princes of ISRAEL. TERRORS including the SWORD will be AGAINST MY PEOPLE; therefore strike your thigh. (13) BECAUSE IT IS A TESTING, and what if the SWORD despises EVEN the SCEPTER? The SCEPTER SHALL BE NO MORE.) (Is.34:5--For MY SWORD shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it will come down on EDOM, (Gen.25:30--And ESAU said to JACOB, “Please feed me with that same RED stew, for I am weary, therefore his NAME was called EDOM.) (Rom.9:13--As it is written, “JACOB I have LOVED, but ESAU I have HATED.)
(Jere.49:10--But I have made ESAU BARE; I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself. His DESCENDANTS are plundered, his brethren and his neighbors, and he is NO more. (11) LEAVE YOUR FATHERLESS CHILDREN, I WILL PRESERVE THEM ALIVE; and let YOUR WIDOWS TRUST IN ME.) (Returning to Rom.9:14--What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not! (15) For He says to MOSES, I WILL HAVE MERCY on WHOMEVER I will have mercy, and I WILL HAVE COMPASSION on WHOMEVER I will have compassion. (16) So THEN it is NOT of him who WILLS, NOR of him who RUNS, but of GOD WHO SHOWS MERCY.) (Returning to Is.34:5--For My sword shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it shall come down on EDOM, and on the people of MY CURSE, for JUDGMENT (6) The SWORD of the Lord is FILLED WITH BLOOD, , (skipping ahead to verse 8--For it is THE DAY OF THE LORD’S VENGEANCE, the YEAR OF RECOMPENSE for THE CAUSE of ZION.)
(Is.61:1--The SPIRIT of the Lord God is UPON ME, because the Lord has ANOINTED Me to preach GOOD TIDINGS to THE POOR; He has SENT Me to HEAL the BROKEN HEARTED, to proclaim liberty to the CAPTIVES, and the OPENING of the PRISON to those who are BOUND; (3) to proclaim THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD and THE DAY of VENGEANCE of OUR GOD; to comfort ALL who mourn to console those who MOURN IN ZION, to give them BEAUTY for ASHES, the OIL of JOY for MOURNING, the GARMENT of PRAISE for the SPIRIT of HEAVINESS; that THEY MAY BE CALLED TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, the PLANTING of the LORD, that HE may be GLORIFIED. (Is.60:21--Also your people shall all be RIGHTEOUS; they SHALL INHERIT THE LAND FOREVER, THE BRANCH OF MY PLANTING, the WORK of MY HANDS, THAT I may be GLORIFIED.) (Matt.15:13,b--EVERY PLANT which My heavenly Father has NOT PLANTED WILL BE UPROOTED.)
(returning to 2 Chron.7:14--If My people who are called by My name will HUMBLE THEMSELVES, (Ps.25:9--The HUMBLE He guides in justice, and the HUMBLE HE TEACHES HIS WAY. (10) All the paths of the Lord are MERCY and TRUTH, to such as keep HIS COVENANT and His testimonies. (12) Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall HE TEACH in THE WAY HE CHOOSES, (12) He himself shall dwell in prosperity, and HIS DESCENDANTS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH. (14) The SECRET of the LORD is with those who FEAR Him, and He will SHOW them HIS COVENANT)
(Is.49:8--In an ACCEPTABLE time I have HEARD You, and in the day of SALVATION I have HELPED You; I will PRESERVE You and GIVE YOU AS A COVENANT to the people, to RESTORE THE EARTH, to cause them TO INHERIT the DESOLATE HERITAGES. ((Looking back at verse 6,b--I will also GIVE You AS A LIGHT to the GENTILES, that You should be MY SALVATION to THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.) (Acts3:19--REPENT, therefore and be CONVERTED, that YOUR SINS may be BLOTTED OUT, so that times of REFRESHING may come from the PRESENCE of the LORD, (20) and THAT HE MAY SEND JESUS CHRIST, who was PREACHED TO YOU BEFORE, (21) whom HEAVEN must receive UNTIL the TIMES of RESTORATION of ALL THINGS, (Heb.10:28,b--To those who EAGERLY WAIT FOR HIM He will APPEAR A SECOND TIME, APART FROM SIN for SALVATION.) (John 6:32,b--but My Father gives you the TRUE BREAD from HEAVEN. (33) For the BREAD of GOD is HE who comes down from HEAVEN and GIVES LIFE to THE WORLD.) (51) I am the LIVING BREAD which came down from HEAVEN. If anyone eats of THIS BREAD, he will LIVE FOREVER, and the BREAD which I shall give is MY FLESH, which I SHALL GIVE for THE LIFE OF THE WORLD
(Returning to 2 Chron.7:14--If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and PRAY (Ps.122:6--PRAY for the PEACE of JERUSALEM: (Ps.135:21--Blessed be the Lord out of ZION, who DWELLS in JERUSALEM!) (Ps.132:13--For the Lord has CHOSEN ZION: He has DESIRED it for HIS HABITATION: (14) THIS is MY RESTING PLACE FOREVER; HERE I will DWELL, for I have DESIRED IT.) (Heb.4:1--Therefore, since A PROMISE REMAINS of ENTERING HIS REST, let us FEAR least any of you seem to have come SHORT of IT. (2) For indeed THE GOSPEL was preached to US as well as to THEM; but THE WORD which they HEARD did NOT PROFIT THEM, NOT being mixed with FAITH in those who HEARD it. (3) For we who have BELIEVED DO ENTER THAT REST, as He has said.) (Zech.3:2--And the Lord said to Satan, “THE LORD REBUKE YOU SATAN! The Lord who has CHOSEN JERUSALEM REBUKE YOU!(Is.45:20-Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you who have escaped from the nations. They have NO KNOWLEDGE, who carry the WOOD of their CARVED IMAGE, and PRAY to a god THAT CANNOT SAVE. (22) “LOOK TO ME, and be SAVED, all you ENDS OF THE EARTH! For I am God, and there is NO other.)
(Returning to 2 Chron. 7:14--If MY PEOPLE who are called by My name will humble themselves and PRAY and SEEK MY FACE, (Ps.24:6--This is JACOB, the generation of those who SEEK HIM, who SEEK YOUR FACE.) (Ps.105:4--SEEK the LORD and HIS STRENGTH; SEEK HIS FACE EVERMORE. (5) Remember His marvelous works which He has done, HIS WONDERS, and the JUDGMENTS of HIS MOUTH, (6) O SEED of ABRAHAM His servant, You CHILDREN of JACOB, HIS CHOSEN ONES! (John 15:16--You DID NOT CHOOSE ME, but I CHOSE YOU and appointed you that you SHOULD GO and BEAR FRUIT, and that your FRUIT SHOULD REMAIN, that WHATEVER you ASK the FATHER in MY NAME HE MAY GIVE you.)
(2Chron.20:6--O Lord God OF OUR FATHERS, are YOU NOT GOD in HEAVEN, and DO YOU NOT RULE OVER ALL THE KINGDOMS of the NATIONS, and in Your hand is there not POWER and MIGHT, so that NO ONE IS ABLE TO WITHSTAND YOU? (7) Are YOU NOT OUR GOD, who DROVE OUT THE INHABITANTS of the land before YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL, (Gen.35:9--Then God appeared to JACOB again, when he came from Padan Aram, and blessed him. (10) And God said to him, “YOUR NAME is JACOB; your name shall NOT be called JACOB anymore, but ISRAEL shall be your name. So HE CALLED HIS NAME ISRAEL. (11) Also God said to him: I am GOD ALMIGHTY. Be FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY; a NATION and a company of NATIONS shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body. (12) The LAND which I GAVE ABRAHAM and ISAAC I GIVE TO YOU; and TO YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU I GIVE THIS LAND.) (Promise land?) (Jacob’s dream: Gen.28:12-22)
(Rom 3:13--For the PROMISE that he would be THE HEIR OF THE WORLD was NOT to ABRAHAM or to his SEED through the law, but through the RIGHTEOUNESS of FAITH.) (Gal. 3:29--and IF you are CHRIST’S, THEN you are ABRAHAMS’S SEED and HEIRS according to the PROMISE.) Ps. 2:6--Yet I have set My King on My HOLY HILL of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to me, YOU ARE MY SON today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) Ask of Me and I will GIVE You the NATIONS for Your INHERITANCE and the ENDS OF THE EARTH for Your POSSESSION.) (Ps.67:1--God be MERCIFUL to us and BLESS us, and CAUSE HIS FACE TO SHINE UPON US, (2) that YOUR WAY may be KNOWN on EARTH, YOUR SALVATION AMONG ALL NATIONS.)
(Returning to Ps.105:7--HE is the LORD OUR GOD; His judgments are in ALL the EARTH. (8) He has REMEMBERED HIS COVENANT FOREVER, THE WORD WHICH HE COMMANDED FOR A THOUSAND GENERATIONS. (9) THE COVENANT which He made with ABRAHAM, and HIS OATH to ISAAC, (10) and CONFIRMED IT TO JACOB for a STATUTE, to ISRAEL FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT, (Gen.9:13--I set MY RAINBOW in the CLOUD, and it shall be for THE SIGN of the COVENANT between ME and the EARTH. (14) It shall be when I bring A CLOUD over the EARTH, that the RAINBOW shall be seen IN THE CLOUD; (15) and I WILL REMEMBER MY COVENANT which is BETWEEN ME and YOU and EVERY LIVING CREATURE of ALL FLESH; the WATERS shall NEVER AGAIN become A FLOOD to DESTROY ALL FLESH. (Jere.46:7--WHO is THIS coming up like a FLOOD, whose waters move like the rivers? (8) EGYPT rises up LIKE A FLOOD, and its waters move like the rivers; and he says, I WILL GO UP and COVER THE EARTH, I WILL DESTROY THE CITY and ITS INHABITANTS. (9) Come up, O horses, and rage O chariots! (10) For THIS is the DAY OF THE LORD GOD of HOSTS a DAY of VENGENACE, that HE MAY AVENGE HIMSELF ON HIS ADVERSARIES.) (Is.61:2--To proclaim the ACCEPTABLE year of the Lord and THE DAY OF VENGEANCE of OUR GOD; To comfort all who mourn, to console those who MOURN IN ZION.)
(Returning to Gen.9:16--The RAINBOW shall be in the CLOUD, and I will LOOK ON IT TO REMEMBER the EVERLASTING COVENANT between GOD and EVERY LIVING CREATURE of ALL FLESH that is on the EARTH.) (Job 37:10--By the breath of God Ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen. (11) Also with thick moisture HE SATURATES the THICK CLOUDS. (12) And they swirl about, being turned by HIS GUIDANCE, that they MAY DO WHATEVER HE COMMANDS THEM on THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH. (13) He causes it to come, whether for CORRECTION, or FOR HIS LAND, or FOR MERCY. (14) Listen to this, O Job; stand still and consider the WONDROUS WORKS OF GOD, (15) Do you know when GOD DISPATCHES THEM, and CAUSES THE LIGHT OF HIS CLOUD TO SHINE? (16) Do you know THE BALANCE OF CLOUDS, those WONDROUS WORKS of HIM who is PERFECT in KNOWLEDGE?
Rev.10:1--And I saw still another mighty ANGEL coming down from HEAVEN, CLOTHED WITH A CLOUD. And a RAINBOW was on HIS HEAD, (Eze.1:28--Like the appearance of a RAINBOW in a CLOUD on a RAINY DAY, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. THIS was the APPEARANCE of the LIKENESS of the GLORY of the LORD.) (Returning to Rev.10:1--his FACE was LIKE THE SUN, and his feet like pillars of fire. (2) And he had a LITTLE BOOK OPEN IN HIS HAND, and he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land. (3) And cried with a loud voice, as when a LION ROARS. And when he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices. (Hosea 11:9--I will NOT execute the FIERCENESS of MY ANGER; I will not again destroy Ephraim. For I AM GOD, and NOT MAN, the HOLY ONE in YOUR MIDST; and I WILL NOT COME AGAIN WITH TERROR. (10) They shall walk after the Lord. HE WILL ROAR LIKE A LION. WHEN HE ROARS, then HIS SONS SHALL COME TREMBLING from the WEST; they shall come trembling like A BIRD from EGYPT. Like A DOVE from the land of the ASSYRIA. And I will LET THEM DWELL IN THEIR HOUSES, says the Lord.)
(Is.8:7--Now therefore, behold the Lord brings up over them the WATERS of the River, strong and mighty--The king of ASSYRIA and all his glory; He will go up over all his channels and go over all his banks. (8) He will pass through JUDAH, He will overflow and pass over, He will reach up to the neck; and STRETCHING OUT OF his of WINGS will FILL THE BREATH OF YOUR LAND, O IMMANUEL.) (Is. 10:5--WOE to ASSYRIA, the ROD of MY ANGER and the staff in whose hand is MY INDIGNATION. (DIG-IN-NATION) (6) I will send him against an ungodly nation, and AGAINST the people of MY WRATH I will give him charge, (1 Thess.5:9--For God DID NOT APPOINT us to WRATH, but to OBTAIN SALVATION through JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.) (Returning to Is.10:7--Yet he DOES NOT MEAN so, NOR does his HEART THINK so; but it is in his heart to DESTROY and CUT OFF NOT A FEW NATIONS.)
(Luke 9:51--Now it came to pass, when THE TIME had come FOR HIM (Jesus) TO BE RECEIVED UP, that He STEADFASTLY set HIS FACE to go to JERUSALEM, (52) and sent messengers before HIS FACE and as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to PREPARE for HIM. (52) But THEY DID NOT RECEIVE HIM, because HIS FACE was SET for the JOURNEY to JERUSALEM. (54) And when HIS DICIPLES JAMES and JOHN saw this, they said, “LORD, DO YOU WANT US TO COMMAND FIRE TO COME DOWN and CONSUME THEM, JUST AS ELIJAH DID? (55) But he turned and REBUKED them, and said, “YOU DO NOT KNOW OF WHAT MANNER OF SPIRIT YOU ARE? (56) For the SON of MAN DID NOT COME TO DESTROY MEN’S LIVES but TO SAVE THEM.)
(Matt.5:17--Do NOT THINK that I came to DESTROY the LAW or the PROPHETS. I did not come to DESTROY but to FULFILL.(18) For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, ONE JOT or ONE TITTLE will by NO MEANS PASS FROM THE LAW TILL ALL IS FULFILLED. (Rom.13:8--OWE NO ONE ANYTHING except to LOVE ONE ANOTHER, for he who LOVES ANOTHER HAS FULFILLED THE LAW. (10) LOVE DOES NO HARM to a NEIGHBOR; therefore LOVE IS THE FULFILLMENT of THE LAW.) (1 John 3:16--By this we KNOW LOVE, because HE LAID DOWN HIS LIFE FOR US, and WE also OUGHT to LAY DOWN OUR LIVES for THE BRETHREN.) (1 John 2:5--But whoever KEEPS HIS WORD, truly THE LOVE OF GOD IS PERFECTED IN HIM. (6) He who says he ABIDES in HIM ought himself also to WALK just as HE WALKED. (1 John 2:22--But he who HATES HIS BROTHER is in DARKNESS and WALKS in DARKNESS, and does not know where he is going, because the DARKNESS has blinded his eyes.) (When questioned by God, after killing his brother, Cain asked God and said, “AM I MY BROTHER’S KEEPER?”) (YES, we are OUR BROTHERS KEEPER.)
1 John 4:7--Beloved, let us LOVE ONE ANOTHER, for LOVE IS OF GOD, and everyone who LOVES is BORN OF GOD and KNOWS GOD. (9) In THIS the LOVE OF GOD was manifested toward us, THAT GOD HAS SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON into the WORLD, that we might LIVE THROUGH HIM. (Ps.2:6--Yet I have set My King on My HOLY HILL of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to Me, YOU ARE MY SON TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) ASK of ME and I will GIVE You the NATIONS for YOUR INHERITANCE and the ENDS OF THE EARTH for YOUR POSSESSION.)
(1 John 5:4--For whatever is BORN OF GOD OVECOMES THE WORLD. And THIS is the VICTORY that has overcome the world--OUR FAITH. (5) Who is he who OVERCOMES the WORLD, but HE WHO BELIEVES THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD.) (Acts 15:33--God has FULFILLED THIS for US their children, in that HE HAS RAISED UP JESUS. As it is ALSO WRITTEN in the SECOND PS. YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.)
