a House for Your Holy Name

Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.

Gold for the uses of gold, silver for the uses of silver, and for every work to be done by craftsmen. Now who will offer willingly to fill his hand [and consecrating it] today to the Lord [like one consecrating himself to the priesthood]?

But who am I, and what are my people, that we should retain strength and be able to offer thus so willingly? For all things come from You, and out of Your own [hand] we have given You.

For we are strangers before You, and sojourners, as all our fathers were; our days on the earth are like a shadow, and there is no hope or expectation of remaining.

O Lord our God, all this store that we have prepared to build You a house for Your Holy Name and the token of Your presence comes for Your hand, and is all Your own.

The Belt of Truth

Therefore put on God´s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

To purchase the freedom of those who were subject to the Law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us.

And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying Abba! Father!

Therefore, you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir by the aid of God, through Christ. Gal 4:5-7

Koruja Rakkaudesta

Sillä Herra, sinun Jumalasi, on kuluttava tuli, kiivas Jumala
(5 Moos 4:24)

Joka ei rakasta, se ei tunne Jumalaa, sillä Jumala on Rakkaus (I Joh 4:8)

Kun nyt Jeesus oli ottanut hapanviinin, sanoi hän: "Se on täytetty", kallisti päänsä ja antoi henkensä.
(Joh 19:30)

Mutta puolustaja, Pyhä Henki, jonka Isä on lähettävä minun nimessäni, hän opettaa teille kaikki ja muistuttaa teitä kaikesta, minkä minä olen teille sanonut. (Joh 14:26)

Rauhan minä jätän teille: minun rauhani - sen minä annan teille. En minä anna teille, niinkuin maailma antaa. Älköön teidän sydämenne olko murheellinen älköönkä peljätkö. (Joh 14:27)

Remember your Creator earnestly now before the silver cord of life is snapped apart, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is broken at the fountain,

or the wheel broken at the cistern and the whole circulatory system of the blood ceases to function
