Rom.14:23:b—for whatever is NOT of FAITH is SIN. Rom. 15:4—For whatever things were WRITTEN BEFORE were WRITTEN for OUR LEARNING, that WE through the patience and comfort of THE SCRIPTURES might have HOPE! 1 Chron. 16:11—SEEK the LORD and HIS STRENGTH; SEEK HIS FACE EVERMORE! (Ps.24:6—This is JACOB the GENERATION of those who SEEK HIM who seek HIS FACE.) Returning to 1 Chron.13:12--O seed of ISRAEL His servant, you children of JACOB, HIS CHOSEN ONES! (15) Remember HIS COVENANT ALWAYS, the WORD WHICH HE COMMANDED, FOR A THOUSAND GENERATIONS. (16) THE COVENANT which He made with ABRAHAM, and HIS OATH to Isaac, (Heb.6:16—For men indeed SWEAR by the greater, and an OATH for CONFIRMATION is for them an end of ALL THINGS.) Returning to 1 Chron 13: 17--and CONFIRMED it to JACOB for a STATUTE, to ISRAEL for an EVERLASTING COVENANT.) (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. (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 (Promise land?) which I gave to ABRAHAM and ISAAC I GIVE TO YOU; and TO YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU I GIVE THIS LAND. (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.
Returning to Heb.6:17--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, (Deut.33:27—The ETERNAL GOD is your REFUGE, and UNDERNEATH are the EVERLASTING ARMS:) (Ps. 14:5—For GOD IS WITH the GENERATION of the RIGHTEOUS. (6) You SHAME the counsel of the poor, BUT THE LORD IS HIS REFUGE. (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.)Returning to Heb. 6:18--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 BEFORE US, even Jesus, having become HIGH PRIEST FOREVER according to the order of MELCHIZEDEK. 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.
(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. Rom.16:25—Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my GOSPEL and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the REVELATION of THE MYSTERY which was kept SECRET since the beginning of the world. (28) but now has been made MANIFEST, and by the PROPHETIC SCRIPTURES has been MADE KNOWN TO ALL NATIONS according to the commandment of the EVERLASTING GOD, for OBEDIENCE to the FAITH. Gal.3:2—This only I want to learn from you: did you RECEIVE THE SPIRIT by the works of THE LAW, or by THE HEARING of FAITH? (3) Are you so foolish? HAVING BEGUN IN THE SPIRIT, are you now being made PERFECT through the flesh? (Heb.7:19—For the LAW made nothing PERFECT; on the other hand, there is THE BRINGING IN OF A BETTER HOPE through WHICH WE DRAW NEAR TO GOD. (John 6:44—NO ONE can come TO ME UNLESS THE FATHER WHO SENT ME DRAWS HIM; and I will RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY. (Day of salvation, for His mercy endures forever?) (45) It is WRITTEN IN THE PROPHETS, and they SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT BY GOD. Therefore EVERYONE who HEARD and LEARNED from My Father COMES TO ME.) Ps 25:8—GOOD and UPRIGHT is the LORD; therefore HE TEACHES sinners in THE WAY. (12) Who is the man that FEARS the LORD? HIM shall HE TEACH in THE WAY HE CHOOSES. (13) He himself shall dwell in prosperity, and HIS DESCENDANTS shall INHERIT the EARTH.
Returning to Gal.3:5--Therefore He WHO SUPPLIES THE SPIRIT TO YOU and WORKS MIRACLES among you, DOES HE DO IT by the works of THE LAW or by the HEARING of FAITH?—(6) just as ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, and IT was accounted to him for RIGHTEOUSNESS, (7) therefore KNOW that only those WHO ARE OF FAITH are SONS of ABRAHAM. (8) And THE SCRIPTURES, foreseeing that God would JUSTIFY THE NATIONS BY FAITH, preached THE GOSPEL to ABRAHAM beforehand, saying, IN YOU ALL THE NATIONS SHALL BE BLESSED. (9) So then those who ARE OF FAITH are BLESSED with BELIEVING ABRAHAM. (John 1:29—The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “BEHOLD! THE LAMB OF GOD WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD!) Rom. 14:23:b—for whatever is NOT of FAITH is SIN. Gal.3:13—Christ has REDEEMED us FROM THE CURSE of the LAW, having become a curse for us (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.(29) And IF your are CHRIST’S THEN you are ABRAHAM’S SEED and HEIRS according to THE PROMISE.
Deut. 10:12—And now, ISRAEL, what does the Lord your God REQUIRE of you, but to FEAR the Lord your God, to walk in ALL HIS WAYS and to LOVE HIM, (Ps. 25:4—Show me YOUR WAYS, O Lord; TEACH me YOUR PATHS. (12) Who is the man that FEARS the Lord? HIM shall HE TEACH in THE WAY HE CHOOSES, (13) He himself shall dwell in PROSPERITY, and HIS DESCENDANTS shall INHERIT THE EARTH.) Returning to Deut. 10:12—to serve the Lord your God WITH ALL YOUR HEART and SOUL, (Matt.22:36—Teacher, which is THE GREAT COMMANDMENT in THE LAW? (37) Jesus said to him, You shall LOVE the Lord your God WITH ALL YOUR HEART, with ALL YOUR SOUL, and with ALL YOUR MIND. (38) This is the FIRST and GREAT COMMANDMENT. (39) and the SECOND is like it: you shall LOVE your NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF.) Returning to Deut. 10:13--and to keep the COMMANDMENTS of the Lord and HIS STATUTES which I COMMAND you TODAY for your GOOD? (14) Indeed heaven and the highest heavens belong to the lord your God, also THE EARTH with ALL THAT IS IN IT. (15) The Lord delighted only in YOUR FATHERS, to LOVE them; and HE CHOSE THEIR DESCENDANTS AFTER THEM, YOU ABOVE ALL PEOPLES AS IT IS THIS DAY.
Ps.130:3—If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, WHO could stand? (4) But there is FORGIVENESS with You, that You may be FEARED. (5) I WAIT for the Lord, (Heb.9:28—To those who EAGERLY WAIT for Him He will appear A SECOND TIME, APART from SIN, for SALVATION.) Returning to Ps. 130:5--my soul WAITS for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning—(7) O ISRAEL, HOPE in the LORD; for with the Lord there is MERCY, and with Him is ABUNDANT REDEMPTION. (REDEEM: to BUY BACK: we were sold unto sin) (Amos 3:3 Can TWO WALK TOGETHER UNLESS THEY ARE AGREED?) 2 Chron.6:26—When HEAVEN is SHUT UP and there is NO RAIN because they have SINNED against you, when THEY PRAY toward THIS PLACE (Ps. 24:3—Who may ascend in the HILL of the Lord? Or who may stand IN HIS HOLY PLACE? (6) This is JACOB, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek YOUR FACE.) Returning to 2 Chron.6:26--and confess Your name, and turn from their sin because you AFFLICT them. (27) then HEAR in HEAVEN, and FORGIVE THE SIN OF YOUR SERVANTS, YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL,
(Is.44:21—Remember these, O JACOB, and ISRAEL My servant; I have FORMED you, you are My servant; O ISRAEL, you WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN BY ME! (22) I have BLOTTED out, like a THICK CLOUD, your TRANSGRESSIONS, and like A CLOUD, YOUR SINS, RETURN TO ME, for I HAVE REDEEMED YOU.) (Is. 51:11—So 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.) Returning to 2 Chron.6:27--that you may TEACH THEM the GOOD WAY in which they should WALK; and send RAIN on YOUR LAND which YOU HAVE GIVEN TO YOUR PEOPLE as an INHERITANCE. (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. (Ps.37:34—WAIT on the Lord, and KEEP HIS WAY, and HE SHALL EXALT YOU to INHERIT THE LAND.
Rom.8:1—There is therefore now NO condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who DO NOT WALK ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT. (2) For THE LAW of THE SPIRIT of LIFE in CHRIST JESUS has made ME FREE from the LAW of SIN and DEATH. (3) For what the law could NOT do in that it was weak through the flesh. God did BY SENDING HIS OWN SON in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of SIN. He condemned SIN in THE FLESH. (4) that the RIGHTEOUS REQUIREMENT of the LAW might be fulfilled in US who DO NOT WALK ACCORDING to the flesh but ACCORDING to THE SPIRIT. (9) But you ARE NOT IN THE FLESH but IN THE SPIRIT, if INDEED THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLS IN YOU. (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.)
REDEEM: To pay off. To carry out; make good; fulfill; to set free; rescue, save:) (SAVE: Theology; TO SET FREE FROM SIN and IT’S RESULTS.) Returning to Ps.130:8--and He shall REDEEM ISRAEL from ALL his INIQUITIES. (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. (Ps. 24:6—THIS is JACOB, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek HIS FACE.) (Deut. 32:20—And He said: I WILL HIDE MY FACE FROM THEM, I will see what THEIR END will BE, for they are a PERVERSE GENERATION, (turned away from that which is right) CHILDREN IN WHOM IS NO FAITH. (30) How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight UNLESS THEIR ROCK HAD SOLD THEM, and THE LORD HAD SURRENDERED THEM?) Is 50:1:b—For your iniquites you have sold yourselves, and for your transgressions your mother has been put away. (2) Why, when I came, was there NO MAN? Why when I called, there was NONE to ANSWER? IS MY HAND SHORTENED at all that it CANNOT REDEEM? Or have I NO POWER TO DELIVER? Is.59:16—He saw that there was NO MAN, and wondered that there was NO INTERCESSOR: Therefore HIS OWN ARM brought SALVATION for Him; and His own RIGHTEOUSNESS, it sustained Him; (17) For He put on RIGHTEOUSNESS as a BREASTPLATE, and a HELMET of SALVATION on His HEAD; (20) The REDEEMER will come to ZION, and to those who TURN FROM TRANSGRESSION IN JACOB, Says the Lord.
Ps. 25:16—TURN Yourself to me, and have MERCY on me, for I am desolate and afflicted. (17) The troubles of my HEART have ENLARGED; oh, BRING ME OUT OF MY DISTRESSES! (18) Look on my affliction and my pain, and FORGIVE ALL MY SINS. (21) Let INTEGRITY and UPRIGHTNESS preserve me, for I WAIT for YOU. (22) REDEEM ISRAEL. O GOD, out of ALL THEIR TROUBLES.
Ps. 41:11—By this I know that You are well PLEASED with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me. (12) As for me, You uphold me in my INTEGRITY, and set me before YOUR FACE FOREVER. Ps. 25:12—Who is the man that FEARS the Lord? Him shall HE TEACH in THE WAY HE CHOOSES. (13) He himself shall dwell in prosperity and HIS DESCENDANTS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH. (14) The SECRET of the LORD is with those who FEAR Him, and He will show them HIS COVENANT. (Ps.89:3—I have made a COVENANT with MY CHOSEN. I have SWORN to My servant DAVID: (4) Your SEED I will ESTABLISH FOREVER, and BUILD UP YOUR THRONE to ALL GENERATIONS!) Luke 1:31—And behold you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. (32) He will be GREAT, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will GIVE HIM THE THRONE of His father DAVID. (33) And HE WILL REIGN OVER THE HOUSE OF JACOB FOREVER, and of HIS KINGDOM there will be NO END.
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. 49:8—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; Ps. 2:6—Yet I have set My king on My HOLY HILL of ZION. (7) I will declare the DECREE: (The law) 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. (Heb.8:10—For THIS is THE COVENANT that I will make with the house of ISRAEL after those days says the Lord: I will put MY laws IN THEIR MINDS and WRITE THEM ON THEIR HEARTS: and I WILL BE THEIR GOD and THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. (11) NONE of them shall TEACH his NEIGHBOR and NONE his BROTHER, saying, KNOW THE LORD, FOR ALL SHALL KNOW ME FROM THE LEAST of THEM to THE GREATEST of THEM. (12) For I will be MERCIFUL to their UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, and THEIR SINS and their LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE. (13) In that He says, A NEW COVENANT, He has made the FIRST OBSELETE and growing OLD is ready to VANISH AWAY.)
2 Corin.5:17—Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION; OLD THINGS have PASSED AWAY; behold ALL THINGS have become NEW. (18) Now ALL THINGS are of GOD, who has RECONCILED us to HIMSELF through Jesus Christ, and has GIVEN US the ministry of RECONCILATION, (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 RECONCILATION. Chapter 6:1—We then as WORKERS together with Him also PLEAD with you not to receive THE GRACE of God in VAIN, (3) For He says IN AN ACCEPTABLE TIME I HAVE HEARD YOU, and in THE DAY OF SALVATION I HAVE HELPED YOU, Behold NOW is the ACCEPTED TIME behold NOW is the DAY of SALVATION. (Is. 49:8 goes on to say: 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.)
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 has spoken by the mouth of ALL His holy prophets since the world began. (Is. 49:8:b—I WILL PRESERVE YOU and GIVE YOU as A COVENANT to the people, TO RESTORE THE EARTH.)
Returning to Ps. 25:18--Look on my affliction and my pain, and FORGIVE ALL MY SINS. (20) Oh, keep my soul, and DELIVER me: Let me NOT BE ASHAMED, (1 Tim.2:15—Be diligent to PRESENT YOUR SELF APPROVED TO GOD, a worker who does NOT NEED TO BE ASHAMED, rightly DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.) Returning to Ps. 25:20--for I PUT MY TRUST IN YOU. (21) Let INTEGRITY and UPRIGHTNESS preserve me, for I WAIT FOR YOU. (22) REDEEM ISRAEL, O God, out of ALL THEIR TROUBLES! Pro. 11:3—The INTEGRITY of the UPRIGHT will GUIDE them, but the perversity (Turned from that which is right) of the UNFAITHFUL will destroy them. (4) RICHES do not PROFIT in the DAY OF WRATH, (Ps.2:4—He who sits in the heavens shall LAUGH; The Lord shall hold them in derision. (5) Then HE SHALL SPEAK to them in HIS WRATH, and distress them in HIS DEEP DIS PLEASURE. (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.) (1 Thess.5:9—For God did NOT appoint us to WRATH, but to OBTAIN SALVATION through our Lord Jesus Christ.)
Returning to Pro.11:4—RICHES do not profit in the day of WRATH but RIGHTEOUSNESS delivers from DEATH. (5) The righteousness of THE BLAMELESS will DIRECT his WAY ARIGHT, but the WICKED will FALL by his OWN WICKEDNESS. (6) The righteousness of THE UPRIGHT will DELIVER them, but the UNFAITHFUL will be taken by his own lust.. (11) By THE BLESSING of THE UPRIGHT THE CITY IS EXALTED. Pro.2:21—For the UPRIGHT will DWELL IN THE LAND and the BLAMELESS will REMAIN IN IT; (22) but the WICKED will be CUT OFF FROM THE EARTH, and the UNFAITHFUL WILL BE UPROOTED FROM IT. (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 DOWN, 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. 33:39—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 THAT THEY WILL NOT DEPART FROM ME. (Deut. 31:12—Gather the people together, men and women and little ones, and the stranger who is within your gates, that they may HEAR and that they MAY LEARN TO FEAR THE LORD YOUR GOD, and carefully observe all the words of this law.
Deut. 4:4—But to you who HELD FAST TO THE LORD YOUR GOD ARE ALIVE TODAY, EVERY ONE OF YOU. (5) Surely I have taught you STATUTES and JUDGMENTS just as the Lord my God commanded me that you should act according to them in the land which you go to possess. (6) Therefore be careful to observe them for THIS is YOUR WISDOM and YOUR UNDERSTANDING in the sight of the peoples who will HEAR ALL THESE STATUES, and say, Surely this great nation is a WISE and UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE. (7) For WHAT GREAT NATION IS THERE THAT HAS GOD SO NEAR TO IT, as the Lord our God is TO US, for WHATEVER REASON WE MAY CALL UPON HIM? (8) And what great nation is there that has such STATUTES and righteous JUDGEMENTS as are in all THIS LAW WHICH I SET BEFORE YOU THIS DAY. (9) Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself lest you FORGET the things you have seen, (in the word) and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And TEACH THEM to YOUR CHILDREN and YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, (10) especially concerning the days you stood before the Lord your God in HOREB, when the Lord said to me, “GATHER the people TO ME, and I WILL LET THEM HEAR MY WORDS, they MAY LEARN TO FEAR ME all the days THEY LIVE ON THE EARTH, and that THEY TEACH THEIR CHILDREN.
Mal. 4:2—But to you who FEAR My name the Sun of Righteousness SHALL ARISE WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS. (Jere.33:6—Behold, I will bring it HEALTH and HEALING; I will HEAL them and REVEAL to them the abundance of PEACE and TRUTH. (9) Then it shall be to Me a name of JOY, a PRAISE, and an HONOR before ALL NATIONS of the EARTH, who shall HEAR ALL THE GOOD that I DO TO THEM; they shall FEAR and TREMBLE for all THE GOODNESS and all THE PROSPERITY that I PROVIDE FOR IT.) Returning to 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 BEFORE THE COMING 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. 78:5—For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed A LAW in ISRAEL, which He COMMANDED our FATHERS, that THEY should MAKE THEM KNOWN to THEIR CHILDREN; (6) that the GENERATION to COME might KNOW them, the CHILDREN WHO WOULD BE BORN, that they may ARISE and declare them to THEIR CHILDREN. (7) That they may set their HOPE in God, and NOT FORGET the WORKS of GOD, but keep His commandments. (8) and may NOT be like their fathers, A STUBBORN and REBELLIOUS GENERATION, a generation that did NOT set its HEART aright, and whose spirit was not FAITHFUL to God. (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. (Matt.6:33—But SEEK FIRST, the KINGDOM of GOD and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.) Returning to Is.46:13—MY SALVATION shall NOT linger, and I WILL place SALVATION in ZION, for ISRAEL MY GLORY.
Returning to Jere. 33: 41--Yes, I will rejoice over them TO DO THEM GOOD, and I WILL ASSUREDLY PLANT THEM IN THIS LAND, (Promise 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.
(Ps. 143:10—TEACH me to DO YOUR WILL, for YOU are MY GOD; YOUR SPIRIT is GOOD. LEAD ME IN THE WAY of UPRIGHTNESS. Ps.92:13—Those who are PLANTED in the house of the Lord. Shall flourish in the courts of our God. (14) They shall still BEAR FRUIT in OLD AGE; They shall be fresh and flourishing, (15) To declare that THE LORD IS UPRIGHT; He is my ROCK, and there is NO unrighteousness in Him. (Rom. 9:14—What shall we then? Is there UNRIGHTEOUSNESS with GOD? CERTAINLY NOT! (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.
Rom. 4:3—For what does the Scripture say? Abraham BELIEVED God, and IT was accounted to him for RIGHTEOUSNESS. (4) Now to him who WORKS, the wages are not counted as GRACE but as DEBT. (5) But to whom WHO DOES NOT WORK but BELIEVES ON HIM WHO JUSTIFIES THE UNGODLY, his FAITH is accounted for RIGHTEOUSNESS, (Heb. 11:1—Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.) Returning to Rom 4:--just as DAVID also describes the BLESSEDNESS of the man to whom GOD IMPUTES RIGHTEOUSNESS apart from WORKS: (7) BLESSED are those whose LAWLESS DEEDS ARE FORGIVEN, and WHOSE SINS ARE COVERED, BLESSED is the man to whom THE LORD SHALL NOT IMPUT SIN. (9) Does this BLESSEDNESS then come upon the circumcised only, or upon the uncircumcised also? For we say that FAITH was accounted to ABRAHAM for RIGHTEOUSNESS. (11) And he received the sign of circumcision, A SEAL of the RIGHTEOUSENESS of THE FAITH which he had while still uncircumcised. That he might be the father of ALL THOSE who BELIEVE though they are uncircumcised, that RIGHTEOUSNESS might be IMPUTED to THEM also. (12) And the father of circumcision to those who not only are of the circumcision, but WHO ALSO WALK IN THE STEPS OF THE FAITH which our father ABRAHAM HAD while still uncircumcised. (Jude 3—I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to CONTEND EARNESTLY FOR THE FAITH which was ONCE FOR ALL delivered to the saints.) (Returning to 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. (14) For if those who are of THE LAW are HEIRS, FAITH IS MADE VOID, and THE PROMISE of NO EFFECT. (15) BECAUSE the LAW bring about WRATH; for where there is NO LAW there is NO TRANSGRESSION.
Rom.1:6—But it is NOT that THE WORD of GOD HAS TAKEN NO EFFECT. For they are NOT all ISRAEL who are of ISRAEL. (7) Nor are they all children BECAUSE they are THE SEED of ABRAHAM; but, in ISAAC your seed shall be CALLED. (8) That is, those who are the CHILDREN of THE FLESH, THESE ARE NOT THE CHILDREN OF GOD, but THE CHILDREN OF THE PROMISE ARE COUNTED AS THE SEED. (Gen. 26:2—Then the Lord appeared to him (ISAAC) and said; DO NOT GO DOWN TO EGYPT; (Is. 31:3—Now the EGYPTIANS are MEN, and NOT GOD; and their HORSES are FLESH, and NOT SPIRIT.) (Exodus 6:5—And I have also HEARD the groaning of the children of ISRAEL whom the EGYPTIANS keep in BONDAGE, and I have REMEMBERED MY COVENANT. (6) Therefore say to the children of ISRAEL; I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the BURDENS of the EGYPTIANS, I will RESCUE you from their BONDAGE, and I will REDEEM you with an outstretched arm and with great JUDGMENTS. (7) I will take you as MY PEOPLE, and I WILL BE YOUR GOD. Then you shall KNOW that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the EGYPTIANS. (8) And I will bring you into THE LAND (Promise land?) which I SWORE to give to ABRAHAM, ISAAC, and JACOB; and I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU AS A HERITAGE: I am the Lord.
(Returning to Gen. 26:2--DWELL IN THE LAND of WHICH I SHALL TELL YOU. (Promise land?) (3) Sojourn in THIS LAND, and I WILL BE WITH YOU and BLESS YOU; for TO YOU, and YOUR DESCENDANTS I GIVE ALL THESE LANDS, and in YOU and in YOUR SEED ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED; (5) “Because ABRAHAM OBEYED MY VOWS, and KEPT MY CHARGE, MY COMMANDMENTS, MY STATUTES, and MY LAWS. (God’s grace?)
Rom. 10:4—For CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW for RIGHTEOUSNESS to everyone who BELIEVES. (6) But the RIGHTEOUSENESS of FAITH speaks in this way, “DO NOT SAY IN YOUR HEART, WHO WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN? (7) or, WHO WILL DESCEND INTO THE ABYSS? (8) But WHAT does it say? The word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart (that is the WORD OF FAITH which we preach:) (9) That if you CONFESS with YOUR MOUTH the LORD JESUS and BELIEVE in your HEART THAT GOD HAS RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED. (10) For with THE HEART one BELIEVES to RIGHTEOUSNESS, and with THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE TO SALVATION.
Ps. 32:1—Blessed is he whose transgression is FORGIVEN, whose SIN is COVERED. (2) Blessed is the man to whom the Lord DOES NOT IMPUTE INIQUITY, and in whose spirit there is NO guile. Ps. 85:1—Lord, You have been favorable to YOUR LAND; You have brought back the CAPTIVITY of JACOB. (2) You have FORGIVEN the INIQUITY of YOUR PEOPLE; You have COVERED ALL THEIR SINS, (3) You have taken away ALL YOUR WRATH; You have TURNED from the fierceness of YOUR ANGER. (4) RESTORE US, O God of our SALVATION, and CAUSE YOUR ANGER toward us to CEASE. (5) Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger TO ALL GENERATIONS? (6) Will You not REVIVE US AGAIN, that YOUR PEOPLE may REJOICE in YOU? (7) Show us YOUR MERCY, O lord, and grant us YOUR SALVATION. (8) I will HEAR what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak PEACE to HIS PEOPLE and to His saints; But let them NOT turn back to FOLLY.
2 Chron.8:14—if MY PEOPLE who are CALLED BY MY NAME will HUMBLE themselves, and PRAY and SEEK MY FACE, and TURN from their WICKED WAYS, THEN I will HEAR from HEAVEN, and WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN and HEAL THEIR LAND.
Pro. 5:21—For THE WAYS of MAN are before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders ALL HIS PATHS. (22) HIS OWN INIQUITIES entrap the wicked man, and he is CAUGHT in the CORDS of HIS SIN.

Ps. 27:8--When you said SEEK MY FACE, My heart said to you,
YOUR FACE, Lord, I WILL SEEK. 2 Chron 6:37—yet when they come to themselves in the land where they were carried CAPTIVE, and REPENT and make supplication to You in the land of their CAPTIVITY, saying, we HAVE SINNED, we have DONE WRONG, and have acted WICKEDLY, (38) and when they RETURN to YOU with ALL THEIR HEART and WITH ALL THEIR SOUL in the land of their captivity, where they have been carried captive, and PRAY TOWARD THEIR LAND which You have GIVEN their FATHERS, toward the TEMPLE which YOU have BUILT for YOUR NAME: (39) Then HEAR from HEAVEN YOUR DWELLING PLACE, their PRAYER and their SUPPLICATIONS, and maintain their CAUSE and FORGIVE YOUR PEOPLE WHO HAVE SINNED AGAINST YOU. (40) Now, my God, I pray, let Your EYES be OPEN and let your EARS be attentive to the PRAYER made in THIS PLACE. (41) Now therefore, ARISE, O Lord God to YOUR RESTING PLACE, You and the ARK of Your STRENGTH
Ps.132:8—ARISE, O Lord, to YOUR RESTING PLACE, You and the ARK of Your STRENGTH. (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.

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; Ps.22:25--My PRAISE shall be of You in the great CONGREGATION. (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.
