Give Us The knowledge we Lack So we Will Not Continue To Perish

Hosea 6:3--Let us KNOW, let us PURSUE the KNOWLEDGE of the Lord. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like THE RAIN, like the LATTER and FORMER RAIN to the earth.) (Pro.16:14--As messengers of DEATH is the KING‘S WRATH, but a WISE MAN will APPEASE it. (15) In THE LIGHT of the KINGS FACE is LIFE, and HIS FAVOR is like a CLOUD of the LATTER RAIN.) (1 Thess.5: (8) But let us who are of THE DAY be SOBER putting on the breastplate of FAITH and LOVE and as a HELMET the HOPE of SALVATION. (9) For God did not APPOINT us to WRATH, but to OBTAIN SALVATION through our Lord Jesus Christ.) (1 Peter 1:13--Therefore gird up the loins of YOUR MIND be SOBER, and REST YOUR HOPE FULLY UPON the GRACE that is to brought to you at THE REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST. (14) As OBEDIENT children, NOT conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your IGNORANCE; )

(1 Peter 5:8--Be SOBER, be VIGILENT, because your ADVERSARY the DEVIL walks about like a roaring ling, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR. (9) RESIST him steadfast in THE FAITH, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. (10) But may THE GOD of ALL GRACE, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, PERFECT, ESTABLISH, STRENGTHEN, and SETTLE YOU.) (Tim.2:15--Be DILIGENT to PRESENT yourself APPROVED to GOD, a WORKER who does NOT need to be ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the WORD of TRUTH.)

(Rom.12:1--I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the MERCIES of GOD, that you PRESENT your BODIES as a LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY ACCEPTABLE to GOD, which is your reasonable service. (2) And do NOT be CONFORMED to THIS WORLD, but be TRANSFORMED by THE RENEWING of YOUR MIND, that you may PROVE what is that GOOD and ACCEPTABLE and PERFECT WILL OF GOD.) (1 Tim.2:1--Therefore I exhort FIRST of ALL that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for ALL men, (2) for kings and ALL who are in AUTHORITY, that we may lead a QUIET and PEACEABLE LIFE in all godliness and reverence. (3) For this is GOOD and ACCEPTABLE in the sight of God our Savior. (4) Who DESIRES ALL MEN to be SAVED and to COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE of THE TRUTH. (5) For there is ONE GOD and ONE MEDIATOR between God and men, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS, (6) who GAVE HIMSELF a RANSOM for ALL to be testified in DUE TIME.)

(Job 36:2--Bear with me a little, and I will show you that there are yet words to speak on God’s behalf. I will fetch my KNOWLEDGE from afar; I will ASCRIBE RIGHTEOUSNESS to my Maker. (2 Corin.3:6--Who also made us sufficient as MINISTERS of the NEW COVENANT, not of the LETTER but of THE SPIRIT, for the LETTER KILLS, but THE SPIRIT GIVES LIFE. (7) But if the MINISTRY of DEATH, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, (8) HOW WILL THE MINISTRY of THE SPIRIT NOT be MORE GLORIOUS? (9) For if the MINISTRY of CONDEMNATION had GLORY, the MINISTRY of RIGHTEOUNESS exceeds much more in GLORY.)

(Rom.10:3--For they being IGNORANT of GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS, and SEEKING to ESTABLISH their OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS have NOT SUBMITTED to the RIGHTEOUSNESS of GOD (4) For CHRIST is the END of THE LAW for RIGHTEOUSNESS to everyone who BELIEVES.) (Is.46:12--Listen to Me, you STUBBORN-HEARTED, who are far from RIGHTEOUSNESS; (13) I bring MY RIGHTEOUSNESS NEAR, it shall not be far off; MY SALVATION shall NOT LINGER. And I WILL PLACE SAVATION in ZION for ISRAEL MY GLORY.)

Is.32:15--UNTIL THE SPIRIT is POURED UPON US from on HIGH, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is counted as a forest. (14) Then JUSTICE will dwell in the wilderness, and RIGHTEOUSNESS remains in the FRUITFUL FIELD. (17) THE WORK of RIGHTEOUSNESS will be PEACE, and the EFFECT of RIGHTEOUSNESS, QUIETNESS and ASSURANCE FOREVER. (Is.33:5--The Lord is EXALTED, for He dwells on high; He has filled ZION with JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS. (6) WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE will be THE STABILITY of your TIMES, and THE STRENGTH of SALVATION; THE FEAR of the LORD is HIS TREASURE.) (Pro.14:27--THE FEAR of the Lord is A FOUNTAIN of LIFE, to AVOID THE SNARES of DEATH.) (Pro.9:10--The FEAR of the Lord is the BEGINNING of WISDOM, and THE KNOWLEDGE of the HOLY ONE is UNDERSTANDING.) (Is.5:12,b--They DO NOT REGARD the WORK of the LORD, nor CONSIDER the OPERATION of HIS HANDS. (13) Therefore MY PEOPLE have gone into captivity BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE.)

(Ps.111:2--The WORKS of the LORD are GREAT, STUDIED by ALL who have PLEASURE in THEM. (3) HIS WORK is HONORABLE and GLORIOUS, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ENDURES FOREVER. (4) HE HAS MADE HIS WONDERFUL WORKS to BE REMEMBERED. (6) HE HAS DECLARED to HIS PEOPLE the POWER of HIS WORKS, in GIVING THEM THE HERITAGE of THE NATIONS.) (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.)

(Is.10:20--And it shall come to pass in that day, that THE REMNANT of ISRAEL, and such as have escaped of the house of JACOB will never again depend on them who DEFEATED them, but will DEPEND on the Lord the HOLY ONE of ISRAEL in TRUTH. (21) THE REMNANT will RETURN the remnant of Jacob to the MIGHTY GOD, (22) For though your people, O ISRAEL, be as the sand of the sea, YET A REMNANT of them WILL RETURN; THE DESTRUCTION DECREED SHALL OVERFLOW WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS. (23) For the Lord God will make a determined end in the midst of the land. (24) Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: MY PEOPLE who DWELL IN ZION, do not be AFRAID of the ASSYRIAN. He shall strike you with a rod and lift up his staff against you, in the manner of Egypt.)

(Is.10:5--Woe to ASSYRIA, the rod of My anger and the staff in whose hand is My indignation. (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. (12) Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Lord has performed HIS WORK on MOUNT ZION and on JERUSALEM, that He will say, I WILL PUNISH the FRUIT of the ARROGANT HEART of the king of ASSYRIA, and the glory of his haughty looks.) (Hab.2:9--Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house, that he MAY SET HIS NEST ON HIGH, that HE MAY BE DELIVERED from THE POWER of DISASTER! (10) You gave SHAMEFUL COUNSEL to your HOUSE, CUTTING OFF MANY PEOPLES, (14) For the earth WILL BE FILLED with THE KNOWLEDGE of THE LORD, as THE WATERS COVER THE SEA.)

(Ps.61:1--Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. (2) From THE ENDS OF THE EARTH I WILL CRY TO YOU, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the ROCK that is higher than I. (5) For You, O God, have heard my vows; YOU HAVE GIVEN ME the HERITAGE of THOSE who FEAR Your NAME. (6) YOU will PROLONG the King’s LIFE, HIS YEARS as MANY GENERATIONS. (7) HE shall ABIDE before GOD FOREVER, oh prepare MERCY and TRUTH, which may PRESERVE HIM!) (Isaiah 49:7,b--Thus says the Lord, THE HOLY ONE of ISRAEL; and He has chosen You. (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.)

(Acts 3:19--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 who was PREACHED to you BEFORE, (21) whom heaven must receive until THE TIMES of RESTORATION of ALL THINGS, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. (22) For MOSES TRULY said to the FATHERS, THE LORD YOUR GOD will RAISE UP for you a PROPHET LIKE ME from your brethren, HIM YOU SHALL HEAR IN ALL THINGS, whatever He says to you. (23) And it shall come to pass that EVERY SOUL who will NOT HEAR that PROPHET shall be UTTERLY DESTROYED from among the people.)

(Deut.18:15--The Lord your God WILL RAISE UP for you a PROPHET LIKE ME from your midst, from your brethren. HIM YOU SHALL HEAR, (16) according to ALL YOU DESIRED of the Lord your GOD in HOREB, in the day of the assembly, saying, LET ME NOT HEAR AGAIN THE VOICE OF THE LORD MY GOD, nor let me see this great FIRE anymore, lest I die.) (Jere.23:29--Is not MY WORD like a FIRE? Says the Lord.) (Returning to Deut.18:18--I WILL RAISE UP for them a PROPHET like YOU from among their brethren, and will put MY WORDS in HIS MOUTH, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. (19) And it shall be that WHOEVER WILL NOT HEAR MY WORDS, WHICH HE SPEAKS IN MY NAME, I will require it of him.)

(Mal.4:2--But to you who FEAR My name, the Sun of RIGHTEOUSNESS shall ARISE WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS. (4) REMEMBER the LAW of MOSES, My servant, which I commanded him IN HOREB for ALL ISRAEL, with the STATUTES and JUDGMENTS. (5) Behold, I will send you ELIJAH the PROPHET BEFORE the COMING of THE GREAT and DREADFUL DAY of THE LORD. (6) And he will TURN the HEARTS of the FATHERS to the CHILDREN, and the HEARTS of the CHILDREN to their FATHERS, lest I come and strike the earth with a CURSE.)

(Amos 5:20--Is not THE DAY of THE LORD DARKNESS and NOT LIGHT? Is it not very DARK, with NO brightness in it? (23) Take away from Me the noise of your songs, for I WILL NOT HEAR the MELODY of your stringed instruments. (24) But let JUSTICE run down like WATER, and RIGHTEOUSNESS like a mighty stream.) (1 Peter 2:6--Therefore it is also contained in 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.) (Returning to 1 Peter 2:7--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, (9) and a STONE of STUMBLING and a ROCK of OFFENSE. They STUMBLE, being DISOBEDIENT to THE WORD , to which they were also APPOINTED.)

(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.

(Returning to 1 Peter 2:9--But you are a CHOSEN GENERATION, a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, a HOLY NATION, HIS OWN PEOPLE, that you may proclaim the praises of HIM who CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS into HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT; (10) Who once were NOT A PEOPLE but are NOW the PEOPLE of GOD, who had NOT OBTAINED mercy but NOW have OBTAINED MERCY.) (Matt.22:14--For MANY are CALLED but FEW are CHOSEN.) (Ps.135:4--For the Lord has CHOSEN JACOB for HIMSELF, ISRAEL for HIS SPECIAL TREASURE.)

(Ps.24:6--This is JACOB the GENERATION of those who SEEK HIM, who SEEK YOUR FACE.) (Exodus 19:3--And Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain saying, “Thus you shall say to the HOUSE of JACOB, and tell the CHILDREN of ISRAEL: (4) You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I BORE YOU ON EAGLES WINGS and BROUGHT YOU TO MYSELF.(5) Now therefore, if you will INDEED OBEY MY VOICE and KEEP My COVENANT, then you shall be A SPECIAL TREASURE to ME ABOVE ALL PEOPE; for ALL the EARTH is MINE. (6) And you shall be to Me a KINGDOM of PRIESTS and a HOLY NATION. These are the words which you shall speak to the children of ISRAEL.)

(Gen.35:10--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.) (Is.43:1--But now, thus says the Lord, who CREATED you, O JACOB, and He who FORMED you, O ISRAEL; FEAR NOT, for I HAVE REDEEMED YOU; I HAVE CALLED YOU BY YOUR NAME; YOU ARE MINE. (2) When you pass through the waters, I WILL BE WITH YOU; and through the rivers, they shall not OVERFLOW you. When you walk through the FIRE, you shall NOT be BURNED, nor shall the flame scorch you. (3) For I am the LORD your GOD, the HOLY ONE of ISRAEL, your SAVIOUR; (5) FEAR NOT, for I AM WITH you; I will bring YOUR DESCENDANTS from the EAST, and GATHER you from the WEST; (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.

(10) YOU are MY WITNESSES, says the Lord, and My servant whom I HAVE CHOSEN, THAT YOU MAY KNOW and UNDERSTAND that I AM HE. Before Me there was NO God formed, nor shall there be after Me. (11) I, EVEN I, AM THE LORD, and BESIDES ME THERE IS NO SAVIOR. (12) I have DECLARED and SAVED I have PROCLAIMED, and there was no foreign god among you; therefore YOU are MY WITNESSES, says the Lord, “THAT I AM GOD.)

(Is.45:20,b--THEY HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE, who carry the wood of their carved image, and PRAY to a gOD that CANNOT SAVE. (21) Tell and bring forth YOUR CASE; yes, let them take counsel together. WHO has DECLARED this from ANCIENT TIME? Have not I, the Lord? And THERE IS NO OTHER GOD BESIDES ME, a JUST GOD and a SAVIOR; THERE IS NONE BESIDES ME. (22) LOOK to ME and BE SAVED, ALL YOU ENDS OF THE EARTH! For I AM GOD and THERE IS NO OTHER. (23) I HAVE SWORN by MYSELF; THE WORD has gone OUT OF MY MOUTH in RIGHTEOUSNESS, and shall NOT RETURN, that to Me EVERY KNEE shall BOW, EVERY TONGUE shall take AN OATH. (24) He shall say, Surely in the Lord I HAVE RIGHTEOUSNESS and STRENGTH. To Him MEN SHALL COME, and ALL shall be ASHAMED who are incensed against Him. (25) In the Lord all THE DESCENDANTS of ISRAEL shall be JUSTIFIED, and shall GLORY.)

(Ps.65:1--PRAISE is AWAITING You, O God in ZION; And to You the vow shall be performed, (2) O You who HEAR prayer, TO YOU ALL FLESH WILL COME. (5) By awesome deeds in RIGHTEOUSNESS You will answer us, O God of our SALVATION, You who ARE THE CONFIDENCE OF ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.)

(John 15:8--By this My Father is GLORIFIED, that you should BEAR MUCH FRUIT; so YOU WILL BE MY DISCIPLES. (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,) (Pro. 2:21--For THE UPRIGHT will DWELL in THE LAND, and THE BLAMELESS will REMAIN IN IT.) (Ps.20:8--But we are RISEN and STAND UPRIGHT. (No longer in a fallen position?) (Looking back at verse 1--May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of THE GOD of JACOB DEFEND YOU. (2) May He send you HELP from the SANCTUARY, and STRENGTHEN you OUT OF ZION.) (Returning to John 15:16--that WHATEVER you ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME HE MAY GIVE YOU. (17) These things I COMMAND you, that you should LOVE ONE ANOTHER.)

(1 John 3:22--And WHATEVER we ASK we RECEIVE from Him, because we KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. (23) And THIS is HIS COMMANDMENT THAT we should BELIEVE on the NAME of HIS SON JESUS CHRIST and LOVE ONE ANOTHER, as He gave COMMANDMENT. (24) Now he who KEEPS HIS COMMANDMENTS ABIDES in HIM, and HE in HIM. And by this we know that HE ABIDES in us, BY THE SPIRIT WHOM HE HAS GIVEN.) 1 John 4:13--
By this we KNOW that we ABIDE in HIM and HE in US, because HE HAS GIVEN US of HIS SPIRIT. (14) And we have seen (in the word?) and testify that THE FATHER has SENT THE SON AS SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.)

(Is.27:6--Those who come, He shall cause to TAKE ROOT IN JACOB, ISRAEL shall BLOSSOM and BUD, and FILL THE FACE OF THE WORLD WITH FRUIT.)

(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.) (John 17:1,b--”Father the HOUR has COME. GLORIFY Your Son, that Your Son also may GLORIFY You. (2) As YOU HAVE GIVEN HIM AUTHORITY OVER ALL FLESH, that HE SHOULD GIVE ETERNAL LIFE to as many (all) as You have given Him. (3) And THIS IS ETERNAL LIFE, that they MAY KNOW YOU, THE ONLY TRUE GOD, and JESUS CHRIST whom YOU HAVE SENT.)


(Ps.111:1--I will PRAISE the Lord with my WHOLE HEART, in the ASSEMBLY of the UPRIGHT and in THE CONGREGATION.)

(Pro.2:21--For THE UPRIGHT will DWELL IN THE LAND, and the BLAMELESS will REMAIN in it.) (Ps.33:1--Rejoice in the Lord, O you RIGHTEOUS! For PRAISE from THE UPRIGHT is BEAUTIFUL. (2) Praise the lord with the harp; make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings. (3) Sing to Him A NEW SONG; Play skillfully with a shout of joy. (4) FOR THE WORD OF THE LORD IS RIGHT, and ALL HIS WORK is DONE IN TRUTH. (5) He loves RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE; the EARTH IS FULL of THE GOODNESS of THE LORD. (11) THE COUNSEL of THE LORD STANDS FOREVER, the PLANS OF HIS HEART TO ALL GENERATIONS.) (Is.46:9--Remember the former things of old, FOR I AM GOD and THERE IS NO OTHER; I AM GOD and THERE IS NONE LIKE ME, DECLARING THE END from THE BEGINNING, and from ANCIENT TIMES THINGS THAT ARE NOT YET DONE, saying MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND, and I WILL DO ALL MY PLEASURE.)

(Ps.16:5--YOU, O Lord ARE THE PORTION of MY INHERITANCE and MY CUP ; You maintain my lot. (6) The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; YES, I HAVE A GOOD INHERITANCE. (7) I will bless the Lord WHO HAS GIVEN ME COUNSEL; My heart also instructs me in the night seasons, (8) I HAVE SET THE LORD ALWAYS BEFORE ME; BECAUSE HE IS AT MY RIGHT HAND I SHALL NOT BE MOVED. (11) You will SHOW ME THE PATH of LIFE; IN YOUR PRESENCE is fullness of JOY; at YOUR RIGHT HAND ARE PLEASURES FOREVERMORE.)

(Mark 12:28--Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, WHICH is the FIRST COMMANDMENT of ALL? (29) Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, ‘HEAR, O ISRAEL, the LORD our GOD is ONE. (30) And you shall LOVE the LORD your GOD with ALL YOUR HEART, with ALL YOUR SOUL, with ALL YOUR MIND, and with ALL YOUR STRENGTH. THIS is THE FIRST COMMANDMENT. (31) And the second, like it, is THIS: YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF. THERE IS NO OTHER COMMANDMENT GREATER THAN THESE.) (Rom.13:8--OWE no one anything EXCEPT to LOVE ONE ANOTHER, for HE WHO LOVES ANOTHER has FULFILLED the LAW. (9) For the commandments, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, You shall not covet, and if there is any other commandment, are ALL summed up in this saying, namely, YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF. (10) LOVE does NO HARM to a NEIGHBOR, therefore LOVE is the FULFILLMENT of THE LAW.)

(Luke 6:36--Therefore be MERCIFUL, just as your Father in heaven is MERCIFUL. (37) JUDGE NOT, and you shall NOT be JUDGED, CONDEMN NOT, and you shall NOT BE CONDEMNED. FORGIVE, and you will be FORGIVEN. (38) GIVE, and it will be GIVEN to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. FOR WITH THE SAME MEASURE THAT YOU USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED BACK TO YOU.) (James 2:13--For JUDGMENT is WITHOUT MERCY to the one who has shown no mercy. MERCY TRUIMPHS OVER JUDGMENT.)

(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. (10) In THIS is LOVE, NOT THAT WE LOVED GOD, but that HE LOVED US and SENT HIS SON to be the PROPITIATION for our sins. (11) Beloved IF God so LOVED US, we also ought to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. (13) By THIS we KNOW that we ABIDE in HIM and HE in US, because HE has GIVEN US of HIS SPIRIT. (14) And we have seen and testify THAT THE FATHER HAS SENT THE SON AS SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.)
(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 UP, 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.)

Jere.9:23--Let not the WISE man GLORY in his WISDOM, let not the MIGHTY man GLORY in his MIGHT nor let the RICH man GLORY in his RICHES (24) but let him who glories glory in this, THAT HE UNDERSTANDS and KNOWS ME, that I AM THE LORD, EXERCISING, LOVINGKINDNESS, JUDGMENT, and RIGHTEOUSNESS in THE EARTH. For in these I DELIGHT, says the Lord.) (1 Sam.2:10,b--THE LORD WILL JUDGE THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.) (Ps.2:8--ASK of ME and I WILL GIVE You the NATIONS as YOUR INHERITANCE and THE ENDS of THE EARTH for YOUR POSSESSION.)

(James 2:13--For JUDGMENT is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. MERCY TRUIMPHS OVER JUDGMENT.)

Amen.. We press in and we press on together. Thank you, Sharon. Love you, sis.
Peggy Yengling 17 Oct 2011
It has become more and more urgent that God's Word be spread throughout the Earth. But, first, Christians have to take stock of themselves and work to avoid the temptations and lures of this world. We need to be strong and resist satan and 'arm' ourselves with Scripture and the knowledge of the Lord. God wants everyone to receive salvation and it is to that end that we, as Christians, need to devote our efforts, prayers and actions. Jesus is the ONLY WAY to that salvation and that is THE MESSAGE we need to share. And may we do that in love, loving the Lord and obeying Him and loving those we reach with all our hearts and souls. Thank you, Sharon, for sharing this wonderful lesson! EMBRACE GOD'S WORD, PRAISE HIM IN ALL WAYS, REACH OUT TO OTHERS AND SHARE GOD'S WORD and HIS LOVE! AMEN! Love, Peggy
