Many are the enemies of the righteous, for the wicked gnash their teeth at them. They have been chosen to rule and reign in My Kingdom; for the meek shall inherit the Earth and the righteous shall see My Glory. For My Glory shall be over all the Earth and the wicked will be no more! Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength for the battle ahead. But, even so, battle or no, the choicest of grapes await those who forge ahead in faith.
Armed with My Word, their faith as a shield about them–
the Sword of the Spirit in their mouth.
Truth and Justice shall prevail!
And, just as Joshua and Caleb took the Promise Land by faith and force, so My representatives, My faithful few–
those who wear My Blood and call upon My Name—
Who draw not back in times of trouble–so they shall eat the good of the land.
Faithful and few, tried and true
My Name shall be praised forever!
“Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” I Cor. 16:13
“Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of man! Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy; for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets.” Lu. 6:22-23
“Depart from evil, and do good; so shall you abide for ever. For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. The righteous shall be preserved for ever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall possess the land, and dwell upon it for ever. The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip. The wicked watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him. The Lord will not abandon him to his power, or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial. Wait for the Lord, and keep to his way, and he will exalt you to possess the land; you will look on the destruction of the wicked.” Ps. 37:27-34
