Unto the Lamb


To Him who sits on the Throne
And unto the Lamb
To Him who sits on the Throne
And unto the Lamb
Be blessing and honor and glory and power forever
Be blessing and honor and glory and power forever


Kathleen Carnali

I heard every created thing in heaven and on earth and under the earth [in Hades, the place of departed spirits] and on the sea and all that is in it, crying out together, To Him Who is seated on the throne and to the Lamb be ascribed the blessing and the honor and the majesty (glory, splendor) and the power (might and dominion) forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities)!

Lily



Consider the lilies; they don't toil or spin,
But there's not a king with more splendor than them.
Consider the sparrows; they don't plant nor sow,
But they're fed by the Master who watches them grow.

May I introduce you to this Friend of mine
Who hangs out the stars, tells the sun when to shine.
And kisses the flowers each morning with dew,
Oh, but friend, He's not too busy to care about you!

We have a Heavenly Father above
With eyes full of mercy and a heart full of love.
He really cares when your head is bowed low;
Consider the lilies, then you will know.


Joel Hemphill

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Luke 12:27

Holy Boldness

I was reading in Act early this morning, how Peter and John were threatened to never again speak the name of Jesus. They prayed - not to be more politically correct so that everyone would like them - but for holy boldness to preach the Word, and that God would perform miracles, signs and wonders to confirm His Word.

And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.
Acts 4:29-31 NASB

Lord Jesus, You promised that Your glory will cover the earth. May we be faithful to proclaim Your Word in these days, when many in the nations are being martyred for preaching the Gospel.

Strength to the Weary


Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord
the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
29 
He gives strength to the weary,

And to him who lacks might He increases power.
30 
Though youths grow weary and tired,

And vigorous young men stumble badly,
31 
Yet those who wait for the Lord

Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:28-31

Spring Forth

For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Isaiah 61:11

ASK

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. Psalm 2:8

I heard KC IHOP intercessor Rick Rupp this morning, telling about the astounding things God is doing in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, and many remote island villages.  There are houses of prayer springing up, and government leaders publicly repenting for idolatry and vowing to serve the one true God.

God has blessed Rick with teams of doctors, nurses, prayer warriors, and people skilled in setting up sanitary water systems in places that have never had these services. He will be returning to the islands next week for a few months.

It was so wonderful to hear the Good News of people coming to the Lord and even going out to help neighbors in remote islands.

He showed us video of the children who live in such meager circumstances, dancing and singing worship songs to the Lord, and treasuring their first Bibles.

God is going to finish what He started, and all the earth will bow before Him!
