He will save

servant

Zephaniah 3:8-9, 14, 17

Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD,

Until the day that I rise up to the prey:

For my determination is to gather the nations,

That I may assemble the kingdoms,

To pour upon them mine indignation,

Even all my fierce anger:

For all the earth shall be devoured

With the fire of my jealousy.

For then will I turn to the people a pure language,

That they may all call upon the name of the LORD,

To serve him with one consent. …

Sing, O daughter of Zion;

Shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart,

O daughter of Jerusalem. …

The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;

He will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy;

He will rest in his love,

He will joy over thee with singing.

Have mercy on us O Lord

The Lost Piece of Silver

Labor Unto Rest

The Lost Piece of Silver

Luke 15:8 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

Silver stands for redemption and ten stands for testimony, or faith.

There is a part of our redemption that we are still looking for, rest.

Hebrews 4:9, 11 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. … Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

It takes work. It takes faith.

Romans 5:1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God (rest), through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God, (his rest).

Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

Say this often, “We have peace with God in the name of Jesus.”

Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation, (PEACE WITH GOD).

1 Corinthians 13:9-13 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Revelation 21:2-5

And I John saw the holy city,

New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven,

Prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,

Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,

And he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people,

And God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;

And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,

Neither shall there be any more pain:

For the former things are passed away.

And he that sat upon the throne said,

Behold, I make all things new.

And he said unto me,

Write: for these words are true and faithful.

Peace with God

Luke 2:13-14 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Tribulation, Patience, Experience, Hope, Love.

A healing

Luke 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Romans 5:1-5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
