1 Thessalonians 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.
Job 36:20—Do not desire the night, when people are cut off in their place.
God opened my eyes and allowed me to see,
A brilliance my mind could not foresee.
Arising up in our hearts I saw,
A light that would set the world in awe.
When we grow up into the Head,
We’ll see the church rising from the dead.
What glory what faith what unity,
As He opens the Word with His Master Key.
As knowledge pours forth from His mind into ours,
The darkness of Satan His mind overpowers.
Bringing us out into heavenly light,
Empowered with wisdom and ready to fight!
To fight for justice and all of mankind,
To heal the sick and deliver the blind.
To open our mouth and defend the poor,
To snatch them away from Satan’s door.
To take the fatherless under our wing,
And show forth the love of our mighty King.
To lift people up and not put them down,
Till they wear on their heads a heavenly crown.
To pray till heaven touches the earth,
And the children of God are brought to birth.
Till babies no longer are put to death,
But kept alive by the Spirit’s sweet breath.
O Holy Spirit breathe we pray,
Till we see ushered in a brand-new day!
A day that is filled with love and care,
As You pour out Your Spirit everywhere.
May the day never end until all have been won?
Please do not miss not a single one!
Aarons Arms are holding us strong,
Encouraging us as we go along.
2 Peter 3:8--But, beloved, do not forget THIS ONE THING, that with the Lord ONE DAY is AS A THOUSAND YEARS, and A THOUSAND YEARS as ONE DAY. (9) The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is LONGSUFFERING toward us, NOT WILLING that ANY should perish but that ALL should come to REPENTANCE.
Psalm 133:1—Behold, how good how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell TOGETHER in UNITY! (2) It is like the PRECIOUS OIL upon THE HEAD, running down on the beard, THE BEARD of AARON, running down ON THE EDGE of HIS GARMENTS. (3) It is LIKE the DEW of Hermon, (Hermeneutics? Dict. Def. The science of interpretation, especially the branch of theology that deals with the principles of Scriptural interpretation.) It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; FOR THERE the Lord commanded THE BLESSING—LIFE FOREVERMORE.
Psalm 2:6—“Yet I have set My King on MY HOLY HILL of ZION.” 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.
Isaiah 45:20—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 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.
Colossians 2:2—that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding to THE KNOWLEDGE of THE MYSTERY of God both of the Father and of Christ, (3) In whom ARE HIDDEN all THE TREASURES of WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE.
Isaiah 45:3—I will give you the TREASURES of DARKNESS and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel. (6) That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is none besides Me. I am the Lord, and there no other; (7) I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things. (8) RAIN down, you HEAVENS, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, let them bring forth SALVATION, and let righteousness spring up together. I, the Lord, have created it.
Deut. 28:12—The Lord will open to you His GOOD TREASURE, the HEAVENS, to give RAIN to YOUR LAND in its season, and TO BLESS all THE WORK of YOUR HAND. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
Deut. 32:2—Let MY TEACHING drop as THE RAIN, My speech distill as the dew, as RAINDROPS on the tender herb, and as SHOWERS on the grass.
James 5:7—Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth. WAITING patiently for it until it receives the EARLY and THE LATTER RAIN.
Joel 2:23—Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the FORMER RAIN faithfully, and He will cause THE RAIN to come down for you—THE FORMER RAIN, and THE LATTER RAIN in the first month, (24) The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with NEW WINE and OIL. (25) So I will RESTORE to you the years that the swarming LOCUST has eaten the crawling LOCUST, the consuming LOCUST, MY GREAT ARMY which I SENT AMONG YOU.
Joel 2:11—The Lord gives voice before HIS ARMY, for His camp is very great; for strong is the One who executes His word, for THE DAY of THE LORD is GREAT and VERY TERRIBLE; WHO can endure it? (12) Now, therefore, says the Lord, “TURN to ME with ALL YOUR HEART, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning. (13) So rend your heart, and not your garments; RETURN to THE LORD your God, for HE is GRACIOUS and MERCIFUL, slow to anger, and of GREAT KINDNESS.
AND HE RELENTS FROM DOING HARM.
(14) WHO KNOWS if HE WILL TURN and RELENT, and leave A BLESSING BEHIND HIM---
Mal. 4:4—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. And he WILL TURN the hearts of THE FATHERS (faith of our fathers living still) to THE CHILDREN, and the hearts of THE CHILDREN to THEIR FATHERS, lest I COME and strike the earth with A CURSE.
Hebrews 9:28—To those who eagerly WAIT FOR HIM HE WILL APPEAR A SECOND TIME, APART FROM SIN, FOR SALVATION.
Ephesians 4:7:--But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. (8) Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and GAVE GIFTS to MEN.” (9) Now this, “He ascended—what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? (10) He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens THAT HE MIGH FILL ALL THINGS. (11) And He gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, (12) FOR THE EQUIPPING of THE SAINTS for THE WORK of MINISTRY, for EDIFYING THE BODY of CHRIST, (13) TILL we ALL COME to THE UNITY of THE FAITH and THE KNOWLEDGE of THE SON of GOD, to A PERFECT MAN, to THE MEASURE of THE STATURE of THE FULLNESS of CHRIST; (14) THAT we should NO LONGER be CHILDREN TOSSED to and FRO and carried about with EVERY WIND of DOCTRINE, ---(15) but SPEAKING the TRUTH in LOVE,
MAY GROW UP IN ALL THINGS INTO HIM WHO IS THE HEAD---CHRIST—(16) from whom THE WHOLE BODY, joined and KNIT TOGETHER by what EVERY JOINT SUPPLIES, according to THE EFFECTIVE WORKING by which EVERY PART DOES IT SHARE, CAUSING GROWTH of THE BODY for THE EDIFYING of ITSELF in LOVE.
2 Timothy 3:16—ALL SCRIPTURE is given BY INSPIRATION of GOD, and IS ACCEPTABLE for DOCTRINE, for REPROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION in RIGHTEOUSNESS.
THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE COMPLETE, THOROUGHLY EQUIPPED FOR EVERY GOOD WORK.
