Rom.8:28--And we know that ALL THINGS work together for GOOD to those who LOVE GOD, to those who ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING to HIS PURPOSE.) (2 Tim.1:9--Who has SAVED US and CALLED US with a HOLY CALLING, NOT ACCORDING to OUR WORKS, but according to HIS OWN PURPOSE and GRACE which was GIVEN to us in Christ Jesus BEFORE TIME BEGAN

(Pro.20:8--EVERY PURPOSE is ESTABLISHED by COUNSEL; by WISE COUNSEL wage war. (28) The SPIRIT of a MAN is the LAMP of the LORD, SEARCHING ALL the INNER DEPTHS of his HEART. (28) MERCY and TRUTH PRESERVE the KING, and by LOVINGKINDNESS HE UPHOLDS HIS THRONE.) (Ps.33:11--The COUNSEL of THE LORD STANDS FOREVER; The PLANS of HIS HEART to ALL GENERATIONS.) (Ps.73:24--YOU WILL GUIDE ME WITH YOUR COUNSEL, and afterward receive me to glory. (25) Whom have I in heaven but YOU? And there is NONE upon earth that I DESIRE BESIDES YOU. (26) My flesh and my heart fail; But GOD is the STRENGTH of my HEART and my PORTION FOREVER. (28) But it is GOOD for me to DRAW NEAR to GOD; I have put my TRUST in THE LORD GOD, that I may DECLARE ALL YOUR WORKS.)

(Ps.16:5--YOU , O Lord, are the PORTION of my INHERITANCE and my CUP; YOU maintain my lot. (5) 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.) (Ps.32:8--I will INSTRUCT you and TEACH you in the way you SHOULD GO; I will GUIDE you with MY EYE.) (Ps.33:18--Behold, the EYE of the LORD is on those who FEAR Him. On those who HOPE IN HIS MERCY.)

(Is.48:17--I am the Lord your REDEEMER the HOLY ONE of ISRAEL; I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, who TEACHES you to PROFIT, who LEADS YOU BY THE WAY YOU SHOULD GO. (18) Oh that you had heeded My commandments! Then your PEACE would have been like a river, and your RIGHTEOUSNESS like the waves of the sea. (19) YOUR DESCENDANTS also would have been LIKE THE SAND, and the offspring of your body like the grains of sand: HIS NAME would NOT HAVE BEEN CUT OFF nor DESTROYED BEFORE ME.) (Gen.22:17-(God to Abraham) In blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply YOUR DESCENDANTS as the stars of the heaven and as the SAND which is on the SEASHORE; and YOUR DESCENDANTS shall possess the GATE of their ENEMIES.)

(Pro.22:17--Incline your ear and HEAR the WORDS of the WISE, and apply your heart to MY KNOWLEDGE; (18) For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; let them all be fixed upon your lips. (19) So that your TRUST may be in the LORD: I have INSTRUCTED you to day, even you. (20) Have I NOT written to you EXCELLENT things of COUNSELS and KNOWLEDGE, (21) That I may make you KNOW the CERTAINTY of TRUTH, that you may answer WORDS of TRUTH to those who send to you?

(Is.45:21--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.)

(Gen.22:15--Then the ANGEL of the LORD called to ABRAHAM a SECOND TIME out of heaven, (16) and said: BY MYSELF I HAVE SWORN, says the Lord, BECAUSE YOU HAVE DONE THIS THING, and have NOT WITHHELD YOUR SON, your only son,) (Heb.11:17--By FAITH ABRAHAM, when he was TESTED, OFFERED UP ISAAC, and he who had received the PROMISES offered up his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, (18) of whom it was said, IN ISAAC your SEED shall be CALLED, (19) accounting that GOD was able to RAISE HIM UP even from THE DEAD, from which he was also received in a figurative sense.)

(Gen.26:2--Then the Lord appeared to him (Isaac) and said; Do not go down to Egypt; DWELL IN THE LAND of which I SHALL TELL you. (3) Sojourn in this land, (promise land?) and I WILL BE WITH YOU and BLESS you; for to YOU and YOUR DESCENDANTS I GIVE ALL THISE LANDS, and I will PERFORM the OATH WHICH I SWORE to ABRAHAM your father, (4) And I will make your DESCENDANTS MULTIPLY as the stars of the heaven; I will GIVE to YOUR DESCENDANTS ALL THESE LANDS; and in your SEED ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED; (5) BECAUSE ABRAHAM OBEYED MY VOICE and kept my charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws.)

(Deut.4:35--To you it was SHOWN that you might KNOW that the LORD HIMSELF is GOD, THERE IS NONE OTHER BESIDES HIM. (36) Out of heaven He let you HEAR HIS VOICE, that HE MIGHT INSTRUCT you; On earth HE SHOWED you HIS GREAT FIRE, and you HEARD HIS WORDS out of the midst of the FIRE.) (Jere.23:29--Is not MY WORD like a FIRE? Says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces.) (Returning to Deut.4:37--And because He LOVED your FATHERS, therefore HE CHOSE THEIR DESCENDANTS AFTER THEM, and He brought them out of EGYPT with HIS PRESENCE, with HIS MIGHTY POWER.)

(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.) (John 15:8--By THIS My Father is GLORIFIED, that you BEAR MUCH FRUIT; so you will be My disciples.) (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.24:6--This is JACOB the generation of those who SEEK HIM, who SEEK YOUR FACE.) (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. (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, (12) The LAND which I gave ABRAHAM and ISAAC I GIVE to you; and to YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU I give this land.) (Deut. 32:9--For the LORD’S PORTION is HIS PEOPLE; JACOB is the PLACE of HIS INHERITANCE.) (Is.41:8--But you ISRAEL, are My servant, JACOB, whom I have CHOSEN. The DESCENDANTS of ABRAHAM MY FRIEND, (9) you whom I have taken FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH, and called from its farthest regions, and said to you. YOU are MY SERVANT, I HAVE CHOSEN YOU and have NOT cast you away. (10) Fear NOT, for I AM WITH YOU; be not dismayed, for I AM YOUR GOD I will STRENGTHEN you, YES, I WILL HELP YOU. I will uphold you with My RIGHTEOUS RIGHT HAND.) (Matt.20:16,b-For MANY are CALLED but FEW ARE CHOSEN.)

(Returning to Gen.22:17--IN BLESSING I WILL BLESS YOU, and in MULTIPLYING I WILL MULTIPLY YOUR DESCENDANTS as the stars of heaven and as the SAND which is on the SEASHORE; and YOUR DESCENDANTS shall POSSESS the GATE of their ENEMIES. (18) IN YOUR SEED ALL THE NATIONS of the EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED, BECAUSE YOU HAVE OBEYED MY VOICE.) Heb.6:13--For when GOD made a PROMISE to ABRAHAM, because He could SWEAR by NO ONE GREATER, HE SWORE BY HIMSELF. (14) Saying, “Surely BLESSING I will BLESS you, and MULTIPLYING I will MULTIPLY you. (15) And so after he had patiently endured, he OBTAINED the PROMISE.)

(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. (15) Therefore it is of FAITH that it might be according to GRACE, so that the PROMISE might be sure to all the SEED, not only to those who are of the law, but ALSO to those who are of the FAITH of ABRAHAM, who is the FATHER of US ALL.) (Eph.2:8--For by GRACE you have been SAVED through FAITH, and THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES it is THE GIFT of GOD, (9) not of WORKS, lest anyone should boast. (10) For we are HIS WORKMANSHIP created in Christ Jesus for GOOD WORKS, which GOD prepared BEFOREHAND that we should WALK in THEM.)

(John14:10--Do you NOT BELIEVE that I AM in the FATHER and the FATHER in ME? The WORDS that I speak to you I DO NOT SPEAK ON MY OWN AUTHORITY, but the FATHER who DWELLS in Me DOES THE WORKS. (11) BELIEVE Me that I am in the FATHER and the FATHER IN ME, or else BELIEVE Me FOR THE SAKE of THE WORKS. (12) Most assuredly, I say to you, he who BELIEVES IN ME, the WORKS that I DO HE WILL DO ALSO, and GREATER WORKS than these HE WILL DO BECAUSE I GO TO MY FATHER. (13) And WHATEVER you ASK in MY NAME I WILL DO, that the FATHER may be GLORIFIED in THE SON. (14) If you ASK ANYTHING in My name, I WILL DO IT.)

(Ps.2:8--ASK of ME and I WILL GIVE You the NATIONS for YOUR INHERITANCE and the ENDS OF THE EARTH FOR YOUR POSSESSION.) (John17:1,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 as You have GIVEN Him. (3) And THIS is ETERNAL LIVE, that they may KNOW You, THE ONLY TRUE GOD, and JESUS CHRIST, whom You have SENT.) (John15:8--By THIS My FATHER is GLORIFIED, that you BEAR MUCH FRUIT; so YOU WILL BE MY DISCIPLES.) (John 12:44,b--He who BELIEVES in Me, believes NOT in ME, but in HIM who SENT Me. (46) I have come as A LIGHT into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not ABIDE IN DARKNESS. (47) And if anyone HEARS My WORDS and does NOT BELIEVE, I DO NOT JUDGE HIM, for I DID NOT COME to JUDGE the world but to SAVE THE WORLD.)

(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.)(Matt.28:18,b--ALL AUTHORITY has been given ME in heaven and on EARTH. (19) GO therefore and make DISCIPLES of ALL THE NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT, (20) teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and LO I am WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN TO THE END OF THE AGE.) (KJV) And lo I am with you always even to the end of the world.)

(1 John4:9--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.) (John 3:16--For GOD so LOVED THE WORLD that He gave His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever BELIEVES in HIM should NOT perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE. (17) For GOD DID NOT SEND His SON into the world to CONDEMN the WORLD, but that the WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED.) (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.)

(2Tim3:16--ALL SCRIPTURE is given by INSPIRATION of GOD, and is PROFITABLE for DOCTRINE, for REPROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION in RIGHTEOUSNESS, (17) that the man of GOD may be COMPLETE, thoroughly EQUIPPED for EVERY GOOD WORK.) (Returning to Acts 3:25--You are SONS of the PROPHETS, and of the COVENANT which GOD made with our FATHERS, saying to ABRAHAM, ‘And in your SEED ALL THE FAMILIES of the EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED. (26) To you FIRST GOD having RAISED UP His Servant JESUS, SENT HIM to BLESS you, in TURNING AWAY every ONE of YOU from your INIQUITIES.)

(2 Chron.20:20,b--Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of JERUSALEM; BELIEVE in the LORD your GOD, and you shall be ESTABLISHED, BELIEVE HIS PROPHETS, and you SHALL PROSPER (21) And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should SING to the Lord, and who should PRAISE the BEAUTY of HOLINESS, as they went out before the army and were saying: PRAISE the LORD, for HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER.) (No cutting off place?)

(Returning to Heb.6:13--For when GOD made a PROMISE to ABRAHAM, because He could SWEAR by NO ONE GREATER, HE SWORE BY HIMSELF, (14) saying, “SURELY BLESSING I will BLESS you and MULTIPLYING I will MULTIPLY you. (16) For men indeed SWEAR by the GREATER, and an OATH for CONFIRMATION is for them AN END OF ALL DISPUTE. (17) Thus GOD determining to show more abundantly to the HEIRS of PROMISE the IMMUTABILITY of HIS COUNSEL, CONFIRMED it by an OATH, (18) that by two immutable things in which it is IMPOSSIBLE for GOD TO LIE, we might have STRONG CONSOLATION, who have FLED for REFUGE to lay hold of the HOPE set before us. (19) This HOPE we have as an ANCHOR of the SOUL, both SURE and STEADFAST, and which ENTERS THE PRESENCE BEHIND THE VEIL, (20) where the FORERUNNER has ENTERED for US, even JESUS, having become HIGH PRIEST FOREVER according to the order of MELCHIZEDEK.)

(Ps140:13--Surely the RIGHTEOUS shall give thanks to your name. THE UPPRIGHT shall DWELL IN YOUR PRESENCE.) (Pro.2:20--So you may walk in the way of GOODNESS, and keep to the PATHS of RIGHTEOUSNESS. (21) For the UPRIGHT will DWELL IN THE LAND, and the BLAMELESS will REMAIN IN IT.)

(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.)

(Heb.5:5--So ALSO Christ did not GLORIFY HIMSELF to become HIGH PRIEST, but it was He who SAID to HIM: 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.)

(Returning to Heb.5:6--As He also says in another place: YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER according to the order of MELCHIZEDEK. (8) Though He was a SON, yet He LEARNED OBEDIENCE by the THINGS which HE SUFFERED; (9) And having been PERFECTED He became the AUTHOR of ETERNAL SALVATION to ALL who OBEY HIM. (10) CALLED by GOD as HIGH PRIEST according to the order of MELCHIZDEK.)

(Heb.2:9--But we see JESUS, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the SUFFERING of DEATH crowned with GLORY and HONOR, that He by THE GRACE of GOD, might taste DEATH for EVERYONE. (10) For it was FITTING for Him, for whom are ALL THINGS and by whom are ALL THINGS in bringing many sons to GLORY, to make the AUTHOR of THEIR SALVATION PERFECT through SUFFERINGS. (14) inasmuch then as the CHILDREN have partaken of FLESH and BLOOD, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that THROUGH DEATH He might DESTROY him who had THE POWER of DEATH, THAT IS the DEVIL, (13) and release those who through FEAR of DEATH were all their lifetime subject to BONDAGE. (16) For INDEED HE DOES NOT GIVE AID to ANGELS, but HE DOES GIVE AID to the SEED of ABRAHAM. And having been PERFECTED, be became the AUTHOR of ETERNAL SALVATION to all who OBEY HIM, (10) CALLED BY GOD as HIGH PRIEST according to the order of MELCHIZEDEK.)

(Rom.1:1--PAUL, a servant of Jesus Christ, CALLED to be an APOSTLE, separated to THE GOSPEL of GOD (2) which He PROMISED BEFORE in the HOLY SCRIPTURES,) Gal.3:8--And the SCRIPTURE, FORESEEING that GOD would JUSTIFY the NATIONS by FAITH, PREACHED THE GOSPEL to ABRAHAM BEFOREHAND, saying in you ALL THE NATIONS SHALL BE BLESSED. (13) Christ has REDEEMED us from the CURSE of the law, having become a curse for us for it is written, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree, (14) That the BLESSING of ABRAHAM might come upon the GENTILES in CHRIST JESUS, that we might receive THE PROMISE of the SPIRIT through FAITH. (15) Brethren, I speak in the manner of men; though it is only a man’s covenant, yet if it is CONFIRMED, NO ONE ALLULS OR ADDS TO IT. (16) Now to ABRAHAM and his SEED were the PROMISES made. He does not say, And to seeds as of many, but as of one, “And to your SEED, WHO IS CHRIST.)

(Acts 13:46--Then PAUL and Barnabas grew BOLD and said, It was NECESSARY that the WORD OF GOD, should be spoken to you FIRST; (The Jews) but since you REJECT IT, and JUDGE yourselves UNWORTHY of EVERLASTING LIFE, behold, we TURN to the GENTILES. (47) For so THE LORD COMMANDED US; I HAVE SET YOU AS A LIGHT to the GENTILES, that YOU SHOULD be for SALVATION to THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.)

(Acts 1:8--But you shall receive POWER when the HOLY SPIRIT has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in JERUSALEM, and in all JUDEA and SAMARIA, and TO THE END OF THE EARTH.) (Luke24:44--Then He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which was written in THE LAW of MOSES, and THE PROPHETS and the PSALMS CONCERNING ME. (45) And HE OPENED THEIR UNDERSTANDING, that they might COMPREHEND the SCRIPTURES. (46) Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and it was necessary for the Christ to SUFFER and to RISE from THE DEAD the first day, (47) and that REPENTANCE and REMISSION of SINS should be PREACHED in HIS NAME to ALL NATIONS, beginning in JERUSALEM. (48) Behold I send THE PROMISE of the FATHER upon you, but tarry in the CITY of JERUSALEM until you are ENDUED WITH POWER FROM ON HIGH.) (Ps.135:21--BLESSED be the LORD out of ZION who DWELLS IN JERUSALEM.)

(Matt.28:18,b--ALL AUTHORITY has been GIVEN to ME in heaven and on earth. (19) GO therefore and make disciples of ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of THE FATHER and of THE SON and of THE HOLY SPIRIT, (20) teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, even to the END of THE AGE. (KJV) And lo, I am with you always, even to THE END of THE WORLD.)

(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. (30) A POSTERITY shall serve HIM, it will be RECOUNTED of the Lord to the NEXT GENERATION. (31) THEY will COME and DECLARE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS to a people WHO WILL BE BORN, that HE has DONE THIS.) (Matt.6:33--But SEEK FIRST the KINGDOM OF GOD and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.) (Ps.45--I will make YOUR NAME to be REMEMBERED in ALL GENERATIONS; Therefore the people shall PRAISE YOU FOREVER and EVER.) (

(2 Corin.3:7--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, (6) how will the MINISTRY of the SPIRIT not be MORE GLORIOUS (9) For if the MINISTRY OF CONDEMNATION had GLORY, the MINISTRY of RIGHTEOUSNESS exceeds much more in GLORY.) (Luke6:37--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.)

(Rom.9:15--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.) (James2:13--MERCY TRUIMPHS OVER JUDGMENT.)

(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. (7) He is the Lord our God; HIS JUDGMENTS are IN ALL THE EARTH.) Ps.82:8--ARISE O GOD and JUDGE the EARTH; for YOU SHALL INHERIT ALL NATIONS.) (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. (30) A POSTERITY shall serve HIM, it will be RECOUNTED of the Lord to the NEXT GENERATION. (31) THEY will COME and DECLARE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS to a people WHO WILL BE BORN, that HE has DONE THIS.)

(Is.51:1--Listen to Me, you who follow after RIGHTEOUSNESS, you who SEEK THE LORD, Look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the hole of the pit from which you were dug. (2) LOOK to ABRAHAM your father, and to SARAH who bore you. For I called him ALONE and BLESSED him and increased him. (3) For the Lord will COMFORT ZION, He will comfort all her waste places. He will make her wilderness like EDEN and her desert like THE GARDEN of the LORD; joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.)

(Is.62:11--Indeed the Lord has PROCLAIMED to THE END OF THE WORLD: say to the daughter of ZION, SURELY YOUR SALVATION IS COMING; Behold, HIS REWARD is WITH HIM, and HIS WORK BEFORE HIM. (12) And they shall call them THE HOLY PEOPLE, the REDEEMED of the LORD; and you shall be called SOUGHT OUT, A CITY NOT FORSAKEN.) (Ps.14:7--Oh, that the SALVATION of ISRAEL would come out of ZION! When the Lord brings back the CAPTIVITY of HIS PEOPLE, let JACOB rejoice and ISRAEL be GLAD.)

(Is.29:22--Therefore thus says the Lord, who REDEEMED ABRAHAM, concerning the house of JACOB. ‘JACOB SHALL not now be ASHAMED, nor shall his FACE now GROW PALE; (23) But when he sees HIS CHILDREN, the WORK of MY HANDS, in his MIDST, they will HALLOW my NAME, and HALLOW the HOLY ONE of JACOB, and fear the GOD of ISRAEL. (24) Those WHO ERRED in spirit will come to UNDERSTANDING, and those who murmured will LEARN DOCTRINE.)

(Is.33:20--Look upon ZION, the CITY of our appointed feasts; Your eyes will see JERUSALME, a quiet habitation; a TABERNACLE that will not be taken down; (21) but THERE the MAJESTIC LORD wil be FOR US.)

The blessedness of being in the Lord is knowing that even when our life, or our world, is turned inside-out and upside-down, the Lord is able to make it all turn out for His glory and for our good. The Scriptures you have quoted here you have brought to the forefront of our memory, to remind us of Who is really in charge, and to comfort and encourage us, which you have done masterfully. Thank you, Sharon!
Peggy Yengling 18 Feb 2012
Dear Sharon, This is such an uplifting message, so full of reassurance straight from God’s Word. He has called us according to His Grace and for His Purpose. And we need to trust Him with all our hearts so that we can live according to His Word. Through the Scriptures He has given us so much guidance and reassurance that He loves us and He has given us His Spirit to guide us as we journey through life. He equips us each time we read His Word and He also gives us great encouragement to go out into the world and spread His Word. May we do this with joyful obedience and let His Light shine through us, knowing He works all things together for the good of His children. With love to my precious sister-in-Christ. Peggy
