Even so come…Lord Jesus come!
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
It is only because of Jesus that anyone can be seen as having “clean hands and a pure heart”. He is the master key that opens the floodgates of God’s grace and allows the power of God to be perfected in our weakness. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, who ever teaches and instructs our hearts and minds, we are able to live transformed as a new creation. Through faith in Christ Jesus, we can be new creations who are able to stand in His holy place. It is Jesus Christ who justifies and qualifies us before God.

I am so very thankful!
“The Day Is Approaching! The Day Is At Hand! Jesus Is At The Door! Are You Ready!?”
Wake up America!
Something to ponder on.
- First,in verse 1 we are to give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good. (Ask yourself, who do you say He is? Try to begin to write down all of the mercies or perhaps only some of the mercies He has extended to you. Then, again after you have done that, ask again: who do you say that He is?)
- Next we read ‘Let the REDEEMED of the Lord say so’. Now ask yourself this question. Who do you say the redeemed are? Why do you believe what you have just written down about who the redeemed are?
- Lastly, are you one of the redeemed?
O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good:
For his mercy endureth for ever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
