Ps. 71:18—O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation YOUR POWER TO EVERYONE WHO IS TO COME.

Ps. 66:1—Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! (2) Sing out the honor of His name; make His praise glorious. (3) Say to God “How awesome are Your works! THROUGH THE GREATNESS of YOUR POWER YOUR ENEMIES shall SUBMIT THEMSELVES to YOU. (4) All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; (5) Come and see THE WORKS of GOD; He is AWESOME in His doing toward the sons of men. (6) He turned THE SEA into dry land; They went through the river on foot. There we will rejoice in Him. (7) He RULES BY HIS POWER FOREVER; (10) For You, O God have proved us; You have refined us as silver is refined. (11) You brought us INTO THE NET; You laid AFFLICTION on our backs. (12) You have caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and water; but You have brought us out to rich fulfillment. (Ps 119:67—Before I was AFFLICTED I went ASTRAY, but NOW I keep YOUR WORD. (68) You are GOOD and DO GOOD; Teach me YOUR STATUTES.) (Pro. 14:22—Do they NOT go ASTRAY who DEVISE EVIL? But MERCY and TRUTH belong to those who DEVISE GOOD.)

Exodus 15:1—“I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into THE SEA! (2) The Lord is MY STRENGTH and SONG, and HE HAS BECOME MY SALVATION; He is my God, and I will praise Him. (3) THE LORD IS A MAN OF WAR; The lord is His name. Exodus 15:4- Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into THE SEA; (6) “YOUR RIGHT HAND, O Lord, has become GLORIOUS IN POWER; YOUR RIGHT HAND, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces.

(Ps. 48:10—According to Your name, O God, so is Your praise TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH: YOUR RIGHT HAND is full of RIGHTEOUSNESS. (11) Let MOUNT ZION rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of YOUR JUDGMENTS. (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.) Returning to Exodus 15:7--and in the GREATNESS of YOUR EXCELLENCE You have overthrown those who rise up against You. (8) And with the blast of Your nostrils the WATERS were GATHERED TOGETHER; THE FLOODS STOOD UPRIGHT like A HEAP. 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; (Ps. 93:3—THE FLOODS have lifted up, O Lord, THE FLOODS HAVE LIFTED UP THEIR VOICE; the floods lift up their waves. (4) The Lord on high is MIGHTER than THE NOISE of many WATERS, than the mighty waves of THE SEA. (1) The Lord reigns, He is clothed with MAJESTY; the Lord is clothed, He has girded Himself with strength. SURELY THE WORLD IS ESTABLISHED, SO THAT IT CANNOT BE MOVED.) Returning to Jere. 46:8--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! And let the mighty men come forth: (10) FOR THIS IS THE DAY OF THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS, A DAY OF VENGEANCE.

Is. 59:19—So shall they FEAR the name of the Lord from the west, and his GLORY from the RISING of THE SUN: WHEN THE ENEMY COMES IN LIKE A FLOOD, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WILL LIFT UP A STANDARD AGAINST 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.) (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.) Returning to Is. 59:20-- The Redeemer will come to ZION, and to those WHO TURN FROM TRANSGRESSION IN JACOB, says the Lord. (21) As for Me, says the Lord, “THIS IS MY COVENANT with THEM: MY SPIRIT who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants, says the Lord, from this time and forevermore.”

Is. 60:1—Arise, shine; for YOUR LIGHT HAS COME! And THE GLORY OF THE LORD IS RISEN UPON YOU. (2) For behold, THE DARKNESS shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; (Amos 5:20—Is not THE DAY OF THE LORD DARKNESS, and NOT LIGHT? Is it not very DARK, with NO brightness in it?) Returning to Is. 60:2--But the Lord will ARISE over you, and HIS GLORY will be seen UPON YOU. (5) THE GENTILES shall come to your LIGHT, and kings to the BRIGHTNESS of your RISING. (4) Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; YOUR SONS shall come from AFAR, and YOUR DAUGHTERS shall be nursed at your side. (5) then you shall SEE and become RADIANT, and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of THE SEA shall be turned to you, THE WEALTH of THE GENTILES shall come TO YOU.

Deut. 8:18—And you shall REMEMBER the Lord your God, for it is HE who GIVES YOU POWER to GET WEALTH, that He may ESTABLISH HIS COVENANT which He SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS, as it IS THIS DAY. Deut. 7:6—For you are a HOLY PEOPLE to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has CHOSEN you to be a people for HIMSELF, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. (7) The Lord did not set His love on you nor CHOOSE you because your WERE MORE in NUMBER than any other people, for you were THE LEAST of all peoples; (8) but BECAUSE THE LORD LOVES YOU, and because HE WOULD KEEP THE OATH WHICH HE SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and REDEEMED you from THE HOUSE of BONDAGE, from THE HAND of PHARAOH king of EGYPT. (9) Therefore know that the Lord your God, HE IS GOD, THE FAITHFUL GOD WHO KEEPS COVENANT and MERCY FOR a THOUSAND GENERATIONS with THOSE who LOVE HIM and KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.

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. (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.

Is. 55:3—Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; and I WILL MAKE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH YOU—THE SURE MERCIES of DAVID. 2 Sam. 22:44—“You have also delivered me from THE STRIVINGS of MY PEOPLE; YOU HAVE KEPT ME AS THE HEAD of THE NATIONS. A people whom I have NEVER KNOWN shall SERVE ME. (45) The foreigners SUBMIT to ME; as soon AS THEY HEAR, THEY OBEY ME. (47) The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be EXALTED. The Rock of my salvation! (48) It is GOD WHO AVENGES ME, who SUBDUES THE PEOPLE UNDER ME, (49) who delivers me from my enemies. You also lift me above those who RISE AGAINST ME. You have delivered me from the violent man. (5) Therefore I will give thanks to You, Lord, AMONG THE GENTILES, and sing praises to Your name. (51) He is THE TOWER of SALVATION to HIS KING, and shows MERCY to His ANOINTED, to DAVID and HIS DESCENDANTS FOREVERMORE.” (Luke 1:54—He has HELPED His servant ISRAEL, in REMEMBRANCE of HIS MERCY, (55) As He spoke to our fathers, to ABRAHAM and to HIS SEED FOREVER.) (Gal. 3:29—And if you are CHRIST’S, THEN you are ABRAHAM’S SEED, and heirs according to 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.)

Returning to Is. 55:4--Indeed I have given him as a WITNESS to the people, a leader and commander for the people. (5) Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, and nations who do not know you shall run to you, BECAUSE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, and THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL; For HE HAS GLORIFIED YOU. (10) For as THE RAIN comes down and the snow FROM HEAVEN, and DO NOT RETURN there, but WATER THE EARTH, and make it bring forth and BUD, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, (11) SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOES FORTH FROM MY MOUTH; it SHALL NOT RETURN TO ME VOID, but IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH WHAT I PLEASE, and IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING FOR WHICH I SENT IT. Is. 45:7—I am the Lord, and there is 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.

Is. 49:3—And He said to me, YOU are MY SERVANT, O ISRAEL, in WHOM I WILL BE GLORIFIED. (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. (14) Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of ISRAEL! I WILL HELP YOU, says the Lord and your REDEEMER , THE HOLY ONE of ISRAEL. Returning to Is. 49:4—Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in VAIN; yet surely my just reward is with the Lord, and my work with my God. (5) And now the Lord says, who formed me from the womb to be His Servant, to bring JACOB back to Him, so that ISRAEL is gathered TO HIM. (7) Thus says the Lord, THE REDEEMER of ISRAEL, their HOLY ONE, (8) Thus says the Lord: 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; (9) That You may say to the prisoners, Go forth, to those who are IN DARKNESS, Show yourselves. (6) Indeed He says, It is too small a thing that You should be My servant to RAISE UP THE TRIBES OF JACOB, (Ps.24:6-the generation of those who seek His face.) and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I WILL ALSO GIVE YOU AS A LIGHT to THE GENTILES, that YOU SHOULD BE MY SALVATION TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.

Job 36:20—DO NOT DESIRE THE NIGHT when people ARE CUT OFF IN THEIR PLACE. (21) Take heed, do not turn to INIQUITY, for you have chosen THIS rather than AFFLICTION. (22) Behold, GOD IS EXALTED by HIS POWER; Ps. 46:10—Be still, and KNOW that I AM GOD; I WILL BE EXALTED among THE NATIONS, I WILL BE EXALTED IN THE EARTH. (11) The LORD OF HOSTS is WITH US; THE GOD OF JACOB is OUR REFUGE. Ps. 47:2—For the Lord Most High is AWESOME; He is a GREAT KING over ALL THE EARTH. (3) He will SUBDUE the peoples UNDER US, and THE NATIONS UNDER OUR FEET. (4) He will CHOOSE OUR INHERITANCE for US, the EXCELLENCE of JACOB WHOM HE LOVES. (5) God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. (6) Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to OUR KING, sing praises! (7) FOR GOD IS THE KING OF ALL THE EARTH; SING PRAISES WITH UNDERSTANDING. (8) GOD REIGNS OVER THE NATIONS; GOD SITS ON HIS HOLY THRONE. (9) The princes of the people have gathered together, THE PEOPLE OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM. For the SHIELDS of THE EARTH belong TO GOD; HE IS GREATLY EXALTED.

Hebrews 8:1—Now this is the main point of the things which we are saying: We have such a HIGH PRIEST, who is SEATED at THE RIGHT HAND of THE THRONE of the MAJESTY in THE HEAVENS, (2) a Minister of THE SANCTUARY and of THE TRUE TABERNACLE which THE LORD ERECTED and NOT MAN, (3) For every HIGH PRIEST is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices; Therefore it was NECESSARY that THIS ONE also have something TO OFFER. (4) For IF HE WERE ON EARTH, He would not BE A PRIEST, since there are priests who OFFER the GIFTS according to THE LAW; Heb. 9:28—So Christ was OFFERED once to bear the sins of many. TO THOSE WHO EAGERLY WAIT FOR HIM HE WILL APPEAR A SECOND TIME, APART FROM SIN FOR SALVATION.

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 CHRIST, WHO WAS PREACHED TO YOU BEFORE, (21) whom heaven must receive until THE TIMES OF RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS, which GOD spoke by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. (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.

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 through His prophets in the HOLY SCRIPTURES, (3) CONCERNING HIS SON JESUS CHRIST our Lord, who was BORN OF THE SEED OF DAVID according to the flesh, (4) and DECLARED to BE THE SON OF GOD WITH POWER, (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 Rom.1:4-- according to THE SPIRIT OF HOLINESS, by THE RESURRECTION from THE DEAD. Acts 13:32—And we DECLARE to you GLAD TIDINGS—that PROMISE which was made to the fathers. (33) God has FULFILLED this for US their CHILDREN, in that HE HAS RAISED UP JESUS. As it is ALSO WRITTEN in the SECOND PSALM: ‘YOU ARE MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.’

Returning to Rom. 1:5--through whom we have received GRACE and APOSTLESHIP for OBEDIENCE to THE FAITH among ALL NATIONS for HIS NAME, (6) among whom you also are CALLED of Jesus Christ. 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. (19) So then those who are OF FAITH are BLESSED with BELIEVING Abraham. (13) Christ has REDEEMED us from THE CURSE of THE LAW, (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.

Heb. 1:1—God, who at various times and in different ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, (2) Has in these LAST DAYS spoken to US by His Son, whom He has appointed HEIR of ALL THINGS, through whom also He made the worlds; (3) who being the EXPRESS IMAGE of HIS PERSON, and upholding all thing BY THE WORD OF HIS POWER, when He had by HIMSELF purged our sins, sat down at THE RIGHT HAND OF THE MAJESTY ON HIGH, (4) having become so much better than the angels, as HE HAS BY INHERITANCE OBTAINED A MORE EXCELLENT NAME THAN THEY. (5) For to which of the angels did He ever say: YOU ARE MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU?’

Eph. 1:17—that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the FATHER of GLORY, may give to you the spirit of WISDOM and REVELATION in the KNOWLEDGE of HIM, (18) the EYES of YOUR UNDERSTANDING being ENLIGHTENEND; that you may know what is THE HOPE of HIS CALLING, what are the RICHES of THE GLORY of HIS INHERITANCE in THE SAINTS, (19) and WHAT IS THE EXCEEDING GREATNESS of HIS POWER toward US who BELIEVE, according to the WORKING OF HIS MIGHTY POWER (20) which He worked in Christ when He RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD and SEATED HIM at HIS RIGHT HAND in the heavenly places.

(Ps. 111:6—He has DECLARED to His people THE POWER of HIS WORKS, in GIVING them THE HEIRITAGE of THE NATIONS.) (John 5:36—“But I have a greater witness than John’s; for THE WORKS which the Father has given Me to finish—THE VERY WORKS THAT I DO—bear witness of Me, THAT THE FATHER HAS SENT ME. (John 10:37—“If I do not do THE WORKS of MY FATHER, DO NOT BELIEVE ME: (38) “BUT IF I DO, though you do not believe Me; BELIEVE THE WORKS that you may KNOW AND believe that THE FATHER is IN Me, and I in Him. (Ps. 28:5—Because they DO NOT REGARD THE WORKS OF THE LORD, nor the OPERATION OF HIS HANDS, He shall destroy them and NOT BUILD THEM UP.) (Ps. 66:8—Say to God, how AWESOME are YOUR WORKS through the greatness of YOUR POWER your ENEMIES shall submit themselves to YOU. (4) All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You.) (Ps. 78:11—I will remember THE WORKS of THE LORD; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old. (12) I WILL also MEDITATE on ALL YOUR WORK, and talk of Your deeds. (13) Your way, O God is in the sanctuary; Who is so great a God as our God? (14) You are the God who DOES WONDERS; You have DECLARED YOUR STRENGTH among the peoples. (15) You have with YOUR ARM REDEEDMED YOUR PEOPLE, THE SONS OF JACOB AND JOSEPH. (16) The waters saw You, O God; The waters saw You, they were afraid; The depths also trembled. (19) YOUR WAY was in THE SEA, Your path in the great waters, and Your footsteps were not known.

Ps. 78:32—In spite of this they STILL SINNED, and DID NOT BELIEVE in HIS WONDROUS WORKS. (33) Therefore their days He consumed in FUTILITY, and their years in fear. (41) Yes, again and again they TEMPTED GOD, and LIMITED THE ONLY ONE OF ISRAEL. (42) THEY DID NOT REMEMBER HIS POWER; The day when He redeemed them from the enemy.

;Eph. 2: 1—And YOU He made ALIVE, who were DEAD in TRESPASSES and sins, (2) in which you once walked according to THE COURSE OF THIS WORLD, according to THE PRINCE of THE POWER OF THE AIR, the spirit who now works in THE SONS OF DISOBEDIENCE, (3) among whom also WE ALL once conducted OURSELVES in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature CHILDREN OF WRATH, just as THE OTHERS.

Is. 12:4—The Lord of hosts musters the army for battle. (5) They have come from a far country, from the end of heaven, EVEN THE LORD AND HIS WEAPONS OF INDIGNATION to DESTROY THE WHOLE LAND. (6) Wail, for THE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND! It will come as DESTRUCTION FROM THE ALMIGHTY. Eze. 22:30—So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in THE GAP before Me on behalf of the land, that I should NOT DESTROY IT.; but I found no one. (31) Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have CONSUMED THEM WITH THE FIRE OF MY WRATH; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads, says the Lord. Eze. 13:4—O Israel, your prophets are like foxes in the deserts. (5) You have NOT gone up into the gaps to build a wall for the house of Israel to stand in battle on THE DAY OF THE LORD. (6) They have envisioned FUTILITY and FALSE DIVINATION, saying, “Thus says the Lord! But the Lord has NOT sent them; yet they hope that THE WORD may be CONFIRMED. (Eze. 7:14—They have blown the trumpet AND MADE EVERYONE READY, but NO ONE GOES TO BATTLE.)

Acts 3:13—The God of ABRAHAM, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of OUR FATHERS, GLORIFIED HIS SERVANT JESUS, whom you delivered up and DENIED in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. (14) But you DENIED the HOLY ONE and the just, and asked for A MURDERER to be granted to you.
(Is. 49:7—Thus says the Lord the Redeemer of ISRAEL, their HOLY ONE, to Him whom man despises, to Him whom the nation abhors, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL and HE has CHOSEN YOU. (8) I will preserve YOU and GIVE you AS A COVENANT to the people, to RESTORE THE EARTH.) Returning to Acts 3:15—and killed THE PRINCE OF LIFE, whom GOD RAISED from THE DEAD, of which we are witnesses. (16) and His name, through FAITH in HIS NAME, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect SOUNDNESS in the presence of you all.

Acts 4:10—“let it be known to you all, and to all of the people of ISRAEL, that by the NAME of JESUS CHRIST of NAZARATH, 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 YOUR BUILDERS, which HAS BECOME THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE. (12) Nor is there SALVATION in any other, for there is NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN AMONG MEN BY WHICH WE MUST BE SAVED. 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. (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. 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. 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.

Ps. 2:6—Yet I have set My king on My 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) WHY DO THE NATIONS RAGE; and THE PEOPLE PLOT a VAIN THING? (2) The Kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, AGAINST THE LORD and AGAINST HIS ANOINTED, saying, (3) Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us. (9) You shall break them with a ROD of IRON; You shall DASH THEM IN PIECES LIKE POTTER’S VESSEL. (1 Sam. 2:10—The adversaries of the Lord shall be BROKEN IN PIECES; FROM HEAVEN HE WILL THUNDER AGAINST THEM. The LORD WILL JUDGE THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. He will give STRENGTH to HIS KING, and EXALT the horn of HIS ANOINTED.

Acts 4:24—So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God WITH ONE ACCORD and said: “Lord, YOU ARE GOD, who made heaven and earth, and THE SEA, and ALL that is in THEM, (25) “Who says by the mouth of YOUR SERVANT DAVID: ‘WHY DID THE NATIONS RAGE, and THE PEOPLE PLOT VAIN THINGS? (26) The kings of the earth took their stand, and the rulers were gathered together AGAINST THE LORD and AGAINST HIS CHRIST. (27) For truly AGAINST YOUR HOLY SERVANT JESUS, whom YOU ANOINTED both Herod and Pontius Pilate, WITH THE GENTILES and the PEOPLE of ISRAEL, were gathered together (28) to do whatever YOUR HAND and YOUR PURPOSE determined before TO BE DONE. (29) “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and GRANT TO YOUR SERVANTS THAT WITH ALL BOLDNESS THEY MAY SPEAK YOUR WORD, (30) BY STRETCHING OUT YOUR HAND to HEAL, and THAT SIGNS and WONDERS may BE DONE THROUGH THE NAME OF YOUR HOLY SERVANT JESUS. (31) And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, and they spoke THE WORD OF GOD WITH BOLDNESS

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. 1 Peter 1:23—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, (25) BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER. Is. 40:6—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, You who bring GOOD TIDINGS, lift up your voice with STRENGTH, lift it up, be not afraid: say to the cities of JUDAH, behold YOUR GOD! (10) Behold, the LORD GOD SHALL COME WITH A STRONG HAND, and HIS ARM SHALL RULE FOR HIM: Behold, HIS REWARD is WITH HIM, and HIS WORK BEFORE HIM.


2 Corin. 5:19—That is, that GOD was IN CHRIST RECONCILING THE WORLD TO HIMSELF, NOT IMPUTING THEIR TRESPASSES TO THEM, and has COMMITTED TO US THE WORD OF RECONCILIATION. 1 John 4:10—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 ought to love one another. (12) No one has seen God at any time, if we love one another, GOD ABIDES IN US, and HIS LOVE has been perfected in us. (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. (15) Whoever confesses that Jesus Christ is the SON OF GOD, GOD ABIDES in HIM, and HE IN GOD. (16) And we have known , and believed THE LOVE that GOD HAS FOR US. God is LOVE, and he who abides in LOVE ABIDES IN GOD, and GOD IN HIM. (17) LOVE has been perfected among us in THIS: that we may have BOLDNESS IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT; because as HE IS, so are we in THIS WORLD.

Ps. 96:10—Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns: THE WORLD ALSO IS FIRMLY ESTABLISHED IT SHALL NOT BE MOVED; He shall JUDGE the peoples RIGHTEOUSLY. (13) For HE IS COMING, FOR HE IS COMING TO JUDGE THE EARTH. He shall JUDGE THE WORLD WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS and the peoples with HIS TRUTH. Ps. 93:1—The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed, He has GIRDED HIMSELF WITH STRENGTH. SURELY THE WORLD IS ESTABLISHED, SO THAT IT CANNOT BE MOVED. Ps. 43:3—Oh, send out YOUR LIGHT and YOUR TRUTH! Let them lead me; Let them bring me to YOUR HOLY HILL and to YOUR TABERNACLE.

Is. 52:7—How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who PROCLAIMS PEACE, who brings glad tiding of GOOD THINGS who PROCLAIMS SALVATION, who says to ZION, YOUR GOD REIGNS! (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.

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.

Heb. 12:22—But you have come to MOUNT ZION and to THE CITY of THE LIVING GOD, the HEAVENLY JERUSALEM, to an innumerable company of angels, (23) to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to GOD THE JUDGE of ALL, to the spirits of just men made perfect, (24) TO JESUS the MEDIATOR of THE NEW COVENANT, and to THE BLOOD of SPRINKLING that speaks better things than that of Abel.

Ezekiel 36:26—I will give you A NEW HEART and PUT A NEW SPIRIT WITHIN YOU; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. (27) I will PUT MY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU and cause you to walk in My statutes and you will keep my judgments and do them. (28) Then you SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND that I gave to your fathers; (promise land) YOU SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD. 1 John 4:12—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 SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD.

Jere. 32:39—then I will give them ONE HEART and ONE WAY that they may FEAR Me forever for THE GOOD of them and THEIR CHILDREN after them. (40) And I will make AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THEM, that I will NOT TURN AWAY FROM DOING THEM GOOD; but I will put MY FEAR in their hearts so the they will NOT DEPART FROM ME. (41) Yes, I WILL REJOICE OVER THEM TO DO THEM GOOD, and I will ASSUREDLY PLANT THEM IN THE LAND, with ALL MY HEART and WITH ALL MY SOUL. (42) For thus says the Lord: Just as I have brought ALL THIS GREAT CALAMITY on THIS PEOPLE, so I WILL BRING ON THEM ALL THE GOOD THAT I HAVE PROMISED THEM. Heb. 9:11—But CHRIST CAME AS HIGH PRIEST OF THE GOOD THINGS TO COME, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, NOT OF THIS CREATION.

Our God is an AWESOME God; and you a faithful servant, Sharon. Mighty and true is your pen when wielded on His behalf. Thank you, my friend! Dennis.

Dear Sharon... Once again, you present an incredible study, set forth so all may learn from it. In this time on Earth where there is so much being SAID and DONE in anger and impatience, we need so badly to go to God in quiet reverence and 'be still, knowing He is God'! We need to BELIEVE that He is our Rock and our Salvation and lean upon Him with great FAITH! We need to derive strength from Him and allow Him to lead us through the valleys and back out to the glorious SON shine! He has promised to do this and we need to hold on to that promise!!!! God has blessed you with the ability to hear His Word in a very special way and then present it in such a way that it becomes even more meaningful for your readers. Keep sharing your gift, for it is reaching hearts and inspiring souls! Love and blessings to my very precious friend! Peggy
