A moment of silence as we hear these words of GOD and of our Lord, Savior and King JESUS CHRIST, saying:
“Thus saith the LORD; ‘[CURSED] be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD’” (Jeremiah 17:5).
“[BLESSED] is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance” (Psalm 33:12).
“[BLESSED] is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is” (Jeremiah 17:7).
“BLESSED is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (Psalm 1:1).
“BLESSED is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered” (Psalm 22:1).
“[BLESSED] are they that hear the word of God, and keep it” (Luke 11:28).
“[BLESSED] are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake” (Matthew 5:11).
“[BLESSED] are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).
“[BLESSED] are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8-9).
“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which [GOD] gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. [BLESSED IS HE THAT READETH, AND THEY THAT HEAR THE WORDS OF THIS PROPHECY], and keep those things which are written therein: for the [TIME IS AT HAND]” (Revelation 1:1-3).
“[BLESSED ARE THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, THAT THEY MAY HAVE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE, AND MAY ENTER IN THROUGH THE GATES INTO THE CITY]” (Revelation 22:14).
“[THESE THINGS I HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU, THAT IN ME YE MIGHT HAVE PEACE]. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
“[FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK]; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
