Matt. 5:6—Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled.
Psalm 14:2—The Lord LOOKS DOWN FROM HEAVEN upon the children of men, to see if there are any who UNDERSTAND, who SEEK GOD. (5) There they are in great fear, FOR GOD IS WITH THE GENERATION OF THE RIGHTEOUS. (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.
Ps. 89:14—RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE are the FOUNDATION of YOUR THRONE; MERCY and TRUTH go before YOUR FACE. (Ps. 27:8—When you said, “SEEK MY FACE,” my heart said to You, “YOUR FACE, Lord, I will seek.) (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. 89:15—Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in THE LIGHT of YOUR COUNTENANCE. (16) In Your name they rejoice all day long, and in YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS they are EXALTED. Ps. 51:10—Create in me a clean heart, O God, and RENEW A STEADFAST SPIRIT WITHIN ME. (11) Do not cast me away from YOUR PRESENCE, and DO NOT TAKE YOUR HOLY SPIRIT FROM ME. (12) Restore to me THE JOY OF YOUR SALVATION, and UPHOLD me with YOUR GENEROUS SPIRIT. (13) Then I will teach transgressors YOUR WAYS, and SINNERS shall BE CONVERTED to YOU. (Ps. 25:4—Show me YOUR WAYS, O Lord; Teach me YOUR PATHS. (5) Lead me in YOUR TRUTH and TEACH me, for Your are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. (8) Good and UPRIGHT is the Lord: Therefore He TEACHES sinners in THE WAY, (9) The humble He guides in justice, and the HUMBLE He TEACHES HIS WAY, (12) Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall HE TEACH in THE WAY that HE CHOOSES, (13) He himself shall dwell in prosperity, and HIS DESCENDANTS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.) Returning to Ps. 51:18--(DO GOOD IN YOUR GOOD PLEASURE TO ZION; Build the walls of JERUSALEM. (19) Then You shall be PLEASED with THE SACRIFICES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Ps. 97:10—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. 98:1—Oh, Sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; HIS RIGHT HAND and HIS HOLY ARM have GAINED HIM THE VICTORY. (2) THE LORD HAS MADE KNOWN HIS SALVATION; HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS He has openly shown in the sight of THE NATIONS. (3) He has remembered HIS MERCY and HIS FAITHFULNESS to the house of ISRAEL; ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH HAVE SEEN THE SALVATION OF OUR GOD. (9) For He is coming to JUDGE the EARTH. With RIGHTEOUSNESS HE SHALL JUDGE THE WORLD, and the people with EQUITY.
Ps. 99:1—THE LORD REIGNS; let the people tremble! He dwells between the cherubim; let the earth be moved! (2) THE LORD IS GREAT IN ZION, and He is high above all the peoples. (3) Let them PRAISE Your great and awesome name—He is holy. (4) The King’s strength also loves JUSTICE; You have established EQUITY. You have executed JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS in JACOB. (5) EXALT the Lord our God, and worship at His footstool; For He is holy. (9) EXALT the Lord our God, and WORSHIP at HIS HOLY HILL; for the Lord our God is HOLY. (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. 118:19—Open to me the gates of RIGHTEOUSNESS; I will go through them, and I will PRAISE the Lord. (20) This is the gate of the Lord, through which THE RIGHTEOUS shall enter. (21) I will PRAISE You, for you have answered me, and have become my salvation. (22) The STONE which the builders REJECTED has become THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE. (23) This was the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. (24) THIS IS THE DAY WHICH THE LORD HAS MADE; WE WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT. (25) SAVE NOW, I PRAY, O Lord: O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity. 1 Peter 2:6—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. 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. 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. Ps. 111:3—His work is honorable and glorious, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ENDURES FOREVER. (4) He has made His WONDERFUL WORKS TO BE REMEMBERED; The Lord is gracious and full of compassion. (5) He has GIVEN FOOD to those who fear Him; He will ever be mindful of HIS COVENANT. (6) He HAS DECLARED TO HIS PEOPLE THE POWER OF HIS WORKS IN GIVING THEM THE HERITAGE OF THE NATIONS.
Ps. 119:38—ESTABLISH YOUR WORD to YOUR SERVANT, who is devoted to fearing You. (40) Behold, I long for Your precepts; REVIVE ME IN YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. (123) My eyes fail from SEEKING YOUR SALVATION and YOUR RIGHTEOUS WORD. Ps. 132:8—Arise, O Lord, to YOUR RESTING PLACE, You and the ark of Your strength. (9) Let Your priests be clothed with RIGHTEOUSNESS, and let Your saints shout for joy. (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. Pro. 10:11—The mouth of THE RIGHTEOUS is A WELL of LIFE, but violence covers the mouth of the wicked. (12) Hatred stirs of strife, but LOVE COVERS ALL SINS. (24) The fear of the wicked will come upon him, and THE DESIRE OF THE RIGHTEOUS WILL BE GRANTED. (25) When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, but THE RIGHTEOUS HAS AN EVERLASTING FOUNDATION.
Pro. 15:28—The heart of THE RIGHTEOUS STUDIES HOW TO ANSWER, but the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil. (29) The Lord is FAR from the wicked, but HE HEARS THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS. Pro. 12:17—He who speaks TRUTH DECLARES RIGHTEOUSNESS, but a false witness, deceit. Pro.16:12—It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, FOR A THRONE IS ESTABLISHED BY RIGHTEOUSNESS. (13) RIGHTEOUS LIPS ARE THE DELIGHT OF KINGS, and they love him who speaks WHAT IS RIGHT. (14) As messengers of DEATH is the KING’S WRATH, (1 Thess. 5:9—For God DID NOT APPOINT US TO WRATH, but TO OBTAIN SALVATION through our Lord Jesus Christ.) 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. Is. 45:8—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. Pro.15:9—The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, but He loves Him who follows after RIGHTEOUSNESS. Pro. 21:21—He who follows RIGHTEOUSNESS and MERCY finds LIFE, RIGHTEOUSNESS and HONOR.
Is. 10:21—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. (24) Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: “O 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. (25) For yet a little while and THE INDIGNATION WILL CEASE, as WILL MY ANGER. 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 NEART TO DESTROY, and CUT OFF NOT A FEW NATIONS. Micah 5:3—Therefore He shall give them up, until she who is in labor has given birth; then THE REMNANT of HIS BRETHREN shall RETURN to THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. (4) And He shall stand and FEED HIS FLOCK in the STRENGTH of the LORD, in THE MAJESTY of the name of THE LORD HIS GOD; and they SHALL ABIDE, for now HE SHALL BE GREAT TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH; (5) and this ONE shall be PEACE when THE ASSYRIAN comes into our land, and when he treads in our palaces, then we shall rise against him Seven shepherds and eight princely men. (7) Then THE REMNANT of JACOB shall be in the midst of many peoples, like DEW from THE LORD, LIKE SHOWERS on THE GRASS, (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. (3) For I proclaim the name of the Lord: ASCRIBE GREATNESS to our GOD. (4) He is a ROCK, His work is PERFECT; for all His ways are justice, A GOD of TRUTH and without INJUSTICE is He.) (Ps.66:3—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.) Returning to Micah 5:7-- that TARRY FOR NO MAN nor wait for the sons of men. (8) and THE REMNANT OF JACOB SHALL BE AMONG THE GENTILES, in the midst of many peoples. Is. 35:10—And THE RANSOMED of the Lord shall RETURN, and COME TO ZION with singing, with everlasting JOY on their heads. They shall obtain JOY and GLADNESS, and SORROW and SIGHING SHALL FLEE AWAY.
Is. 33:20—Look upon ZION, THE CITY of our APPOINTED FEASTS; Your eyes will see JERUSALEM, a quiet habitation, A TABERNACLE THAT WILL NOT BE TAKEN DOWN; NOT ONE OF ITS STAKES WILL EVER BE REMOVED, NOR WILL ANY OF ITS CORDS BE BROKEN. (21) BUT THERE THE MAJESTIC LORD WILL BE FOR US. Matt. 5:14—You are THE LIGHT of THE WORLD. A CITY THAT IS SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN. John 8:12—Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. He who follows Me shall NOT WALK IN DARKNESS, but have the LIGHT OF LIFE. John 12:35—Then Jesus said to them, A little while longer THE LIGHT is WITH YOU. WALK WHILE YOU HAVE THE LIGHT, lest DARKNESS overtake you; he who WALKS IN DARKNESS DOES NOT KNOW WHERE HE IS GOING. (36) While you HAVE THE LIGHT, BELIEVE IN THE LIGHT, that you may BECOME SONS OF LIGHT.(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. Amos 5:18—Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! For what good is the day of the Lord to you? (20) Is not the day of the Lord DARKNESS and NOT LIGHT? Is it not very DARK, with NO brightness in it? (21) I hate, I despise your feast days, and I do not savor YOUR SACRED ASSEMBLIES. (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.
Is.60:11—For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord will CAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS and PRAISE TO SPRING FORTH BEFORE ALL THE NATIONS. Chaper 62:1—For ZION’S sake I will not hold My peace, and for JERUSALEM’S sake I will NOT REST until HER RIGHTEOUSNESS GOES FORTH as BRIGHTNESS, and HER SALVATION as A LAMP that BURNS. (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. Is. 30:18—Therefore the Lord will WAIT, that He may be GRACIOUS to you; and therefore He will be EXALTED, that He may have MERCY on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who WAIT for Him. (19) For the people shall dwell in ZION at JERUSALEM.
Is. 31:1—Woe to those who go down to EGYPT for help, and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many, and in horsemen because they are very strong, BUT WHO DO NOT LOOK TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, NOR SEEK THE LORD! (3) Now the Egyptians are men, and NOT GOD and their horses are flesh, and NOT SPIRIT. (4) For thus the Lord has spoken to me: “As a lion roars, and a young lion over his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is summoned against him, He will not be afraid of their noise, SO THE LORD OF HOSTS WILL COME DOWN TO FIGHT FOR MOUNT ZION and FOR ITS HILL. (5) Like BIRDS flying about, (I’ll fly away O glory?) so will the Lord of hosts defend JERUSALEM. DEFENDING, HE WILL ALSO DELIVER IT; PASSING OVER, HE WILL PRESERVE IT. 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 it waters move like the rivers; and he says, I WILL GO UP AND COVER THE EARTH, I WILL DESTROY THE CITY and ITS INHABITANTS. (10) for THIS IS THE DAY OF THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS, a day of VENGEANCE.
Is. 59:17—For He put on RIGHTEOUSNESS AS A BREASTPLATE, and A HELMET of SALVATION on His head; He put on the garments of VENGEANCE for clothing. (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. (20) The Redeemer will come to ZION, and to those who turn from transgression in JACOB, says the Lord. (John 1:1—In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS GOD. (14) And the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His GLORY, the GLORY as of the only BEGOTTEN of THE FATHER, full of GRACE and TRUTH. (18) No one has seen God at any time. THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, who is IN THE BOSOM of THE FATHER, He has declared 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.) Returning to Is. 59:21--As for Me, says the Lord, this in 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, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants, says the Lord, FROM THIS TIME FORTH and FOREVERMORE. Is. 54:17—No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. THIS is THE HERITAGE of THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, and THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS is FROM ME, says the Lord.
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 brokenhearted, and to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; (2) To proclaim THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD, and the day of VENGEANCE of our God; to comfort all who mourn, (3) 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. Is. 60:14-Also the sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you, and all those who despised you shall fall prostrate at your feet; and THEY SHALL CALL YOU THE CITY OF THE LORD, ZION of THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. (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. Jere.33:14—Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, that I will perform THAT GOOD THING which I have PROMISED to the HOUSE of ISRAEL and to the house of JUDAH: (15) In those days and at that time I will cause to GROW UP TO DAVID A BRANCH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS; He shall execute JUDGMENT and RIGHTEOUSNESS in the earth. (16) In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely. And THIS is THE NAME by which SHE WILL BE CALLED: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Jere. 51:10—The Lord has REVEALED our RIGHTEOUSNESS, come and let us DECLARE IN ZION THE WORK OF THE LORD OUR GOD.
Dan.9:16--O Lord, according to all YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, I pray, let Your anger and your fury be turned away from YOUR CITY JERUSALEM, and your HOLY MOUNTAIN; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers JERUSALEM and YOUR PEOPLE have become a reproach to all who are around us. (17) Now therefore, our God, HEAR THE PRAYER of Your servant, and his SUPPLICATIONS and for THE LORD’S SAKE CAUSE YOUR FACE TO SHINE ON YOUR SANCTUARY, which is desolate. (18) O my God, incline Your EAR and HEAR open YOUR EYES and see our desolations, and THE CITY which is called by YOUR NAME; for we DO NOT PRESENT OUR SUPPLICATIONS before you BECAUSE OF OUR RIGHTEOUS DEEDS, but because of YOUR GREAT MERCIES. (19) O Lord, HEAR! O Lord, FORGIVE! O Lord LISTEN and ACT! Do no delay for YOUR OWN SAKE, my God for YOUR CITY and YOUR PEOPLE are called by YOUR NAME. (Ps. 135:21—Blessed be the Lord out of ZION, who dwells in JERUSALEM!)
Hosea 2:19—I will BETROTH you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me in RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE, in lovingkindness and mercy; (20) I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, and you shall KNOW THE LORD. (23) Then I will sow her for MYSELF in the earth, and I will have MERCY on her who had not obtained mercy; then I will say to those who were not My people, YOU ARE MY PEOPLE! And they shall say, “YOU ARE MY GOD. Jere. 3:14—Return, O backsliding children, says 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. Rom.7:4—Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may BE MARRIED to another, even to HIM who was raised from the dead that we should BEAR FRUIT TO GOD. 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 HIS FACE.
John 15:5—I am THE VINE, (Is.4:7—For the VINEYARD of the Lord of hosts is the house of ISRAEL, (Gen. 32:27-So He said to him, “WHAT IS YOUR NAME?” and he said JACOB, (28) And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called JACOB, but ISRAEL; for you have struggled with GOD and with MEN, and have prevailed.) and the men of JUDAH ARE HIS PLEASANT PLANT. (Ps.78:68—But chose the tribe of JUDAH, MOUNT ZION which He loved. (69) And He built His sanctuary like the heights, like the earth which he HAS ESTABLISHED FOREVER.) Returning to John 15:5--you are THE BRANCHES. He who abides in Me, and I in him, BEARS MUCH FRUIT: for without Me you can do NOTHING. (7) If you ABIDE in Me, and My words abide in you, you WILL ASK WHAT YOU DESIRE, AND IT SHALL BE DONE FOR YOU. (8) By THIS MY FATHER IS GLORIFIED, THAT YOU BEAR MUCH FRUIT; SO YOU WILL BE MY DISCIPLES.) (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 and testify that THE FATHER has SENT THE SON as SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.)
Hosea 10:12—Sow for yourselves RIGHTEOUSNESS; reap in MERCY; break up your fallow ground, for IT IS TIME TO SEEK THE LORD, TILL HE COMES and rains RIGHTEOUSNESS on YOU.
Rom. 1:16—For I am NOT ASHAMED of THE GOSPEL of CHRIST, for it is THE POWER OF GOD TO SALVATION for EVERYONE who BELIEVES, for the JEW first and also for the GREEK. (17) For IN IT the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD is REVEALED FROM FAITH to FAITH; as it is written, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH. Is. 45:22—“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.
Ps. 23:27—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.

Chock full of promise! I close this page thoroughly blessed! Thank you so much for what you do!
Hosea 2:19—"I will BETROTH you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me in RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE, in lovingkindness and mercy; (20) I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, and you shall KNOW THE LORD." I just love it! All our righteousness is in Him; and we KNOW Him by His faithfulness, lovingkindness and mercy to us. We should be SO forever faithful and thankful to Him, 'who has called us, who also will do it'. Thank you, Sharon, for putting us all in remembrance of these things! Dennis
Dear Sharon, Once again, I have a favorite passage that seems to sum up this amazing study: "Ps. 89:14—RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE are the FOUNDATION of YOUR THRONE." There are so many Truths that are evident in your study: The Lord watches - He looks to see who understands God's Word and who is seeking Him. The Lord teaches - He shares His Truth and leads sinners in the way of righteousness. The Lord reigns - and deserves great praise. The hears - and responds to the prayers of the righteous. The Lord welcomes - as the righteous enter His gates. The Lord gives - He provides the SHINING LIGHT of His Son, Jesus Christ! Oh, AMEN, Sharon, AMEN! Love, Peggy
I meant to say 'the Lord' hears...
