A timely reassurance for 2019

A timely reassurance for 2019 (written to a “prayer warrior” with 247 embedded in email).

Yes, I love your email address. Obviously, 247 must refer to Psalm 24:7 St George’s Edinburgh sung in the grand style

vs.7 Lift up your heads, O gates!
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.

vs.8 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, mighty in battle!

But then there’s also!


vs.7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

.
WE ARE WARNED


vs.7 But they cried to the Lord for help, and he put darkness between you and the Egyptians;

Joshua 24:7 NIV

.
WE ARE DIVINELY PROTECTED


vs.7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, “We will do everything the Lord has said; we will obey.”

Exodus 24:7 NIV

.
RE-DEDICATION FOR NEW YEAR


vs.7 With these words David sharply rebuked his men and did not allow them to attack Saul. And Saul left the cave and went his way.

Samuel 24:7 NIV

.
HONOUR IN THE BATTLE


vs.7 The Lord, the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father’s household and my native land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying, ‘To your offspring I will give this land’—he will send his angel before you

Genesis 24:7 NIV

.
VICTORY IS CERTAIN


vs.7 I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

THE LORD IS OUR GOD


vs.7 The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.

Luke 24:7 NIV

.
JESUS IS OUR SAVIOUR


And then – although it’s not 247:

vs.28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.


So:

vs.7 Lift up your heads, O gates!
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
vs.8 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, mighty in battle!

So, it’s a yes to 247 all day long! Pray, Praise, Celebrate!

Blessings to all, Lachlan. chooselifeaustralia.org.au

The King of Kings is born in Bethlehem and the heavens are open to wide-eyed shepherds.

Sing, dance, exchange gifts and good wishes. Forgive, be at peace with one another. There is something bigger than ourselves.

The King of Kings is born in Bethlehem.
