Now that the festivities have ended;
Now that the fireworks have finished;
Now that that the parties have faded;
Now that the drunkardness has worn off;
Now, hear the word of God:
“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).
“The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalms 95:5, 24:1).
“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD” (Jeremiah 22:29).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).
“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).
“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).
“For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:34–35).
