“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will [DWELL[ in the [HOUSE] of the LORD [FOR EVER]” (Psalm 23:1-6).
JESUS says: “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:11).
“In my Father’s [HOUSE] are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. [I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU]. And if I go and prepare a place for you, [I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; [THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO]” (John 14:2-3).
“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and [SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH] the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).
“Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:18).
