Flee Immorality

There are many in the congregations today that gather in the name of Jesus and claim His precious name, yet they live in sexual immorality. They have casual sex and go their separate ways; some commit adultery, and some who are single live together outside of holy, God ordained wedlock; they have children and rear them in immorality assuring the cycle to continue; many go to church and bow to pray thinking they are being heard by God; they even act as if they are righteous. They raise up for themselves preachers to tickle their ears while they conjure up a “Jesus” in their minds that suits their fancy. Well---this is your wake up call people!! God loves you but he hates the sin you are in. Jesus died to cleanse and deliver you from sin, not to cover you in His blood while you willfully continue to wallow in it.

The Apostle Paul writes,

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”

(1st Corinthians 6:9-11 NASU)

If you indeed did come to know the Lord Jesus you were cleansed of your sin and set apart for holiness. Do not let your heart or the teachings of false doctrines deceive you into thinking that you can continue in your sin and still inherit the kingdom of God.

To inherit hell and its woes will be a tremendous curse. Everyone should be anxious that they not be deceived, that while they set their hope on eternal life they do not sink down to everlasting death instead!

“Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.”

(1st Corinthians 6:18 NASU)

As we read the words of the Apostle Paul one can feel that there is force and emphasis in the command to “flee immorality;” a solemn command of God; as fully and clearly expressed as any that thundered from Mount Sinai. No ONE, man or woman, in or out of the church, should disregard it as if they are exempt of penalty or punishment, for none can violate it without being exposed to the wrath of Almighty God.

One should detest, abhor and RUN AWAY from sex outside the union of holy matrimony (fornication KJV) as from trouble or danger; they should not stay to REASON about it; to debate the matter; or even to CONTEND with the inborn inclinations of the flesh, or attempt to test the strength of their moral excellence or righteousness. There are some sins or solicitations to sin, which can be resisted; some about which one can reason without danger of becoming impure or corrupt. But sexual immorality is a sin where one is SAFE only when they flee; one is free from pollution only when they refuse to entertain a thought of it; secure when they seek a victory by flight, and a conquest by retreat. Let the one who desires to be a child of God turn away from it without reflection on it and he/she is safe. Let them think, and reason on the subject and they flirt with death.

The very passage of an impure thought through the mind leaves pollution behind it.”

Even a debate on the matter often leaves pollution; a description most definitely ruins; and even the presentation of motives AGAINST it may often fix the mind with dangerous inclination toward the sin. The Apostle Paul prescribed no way of avoiding the pollution of fornication but to flee; there is no one safe who will not follow his direction.

Though sin of every kind has a tendency to destroy life, yet none are so liable or subject to death as those to which the Apostle refers; they strike immediately at the foundation of the physical and spiritual make up of a person. By the just judgment of God, all these irregular and sinful connections are joined and united with death. Prostitutes, whoremongers, homosexuals nor unclean persons of any description, should they remain in their sin, live out the fullness of their days.

How many people would be saved from poverty, want, curses, tears, sexually transmitted and other diseases, death and hell, if these two words, FLEE IMMORALITY, could be made “to blaze before them like the writing before the astonished eyes of Belshazzar (Daniel 5), and could they terrify them from even the MOMENTARY contemplation of the crime.”

Cherokee Indian

Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth's rite of passage?

His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him alone.

He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a MAN. He cannot tell the other boys of this experience because each lad must come into manhood on his own. The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him. Maybe even some human might do him harm. The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man!

Finally, after a horrific night, the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm. We, too, are never alone. Even when we don't know it, our Heavenly Father is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us. When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.

If you liked this story, pass it on. If not, perhaps you took off your blindfold before dawn.

Moral of the Story: Just because you can't see God, doesn't mean He is not there “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

This Was Your Life

A lot of us remember this tract from Chick Publications. It is very effective on paper -- hopefully even more so in multimedia format with sound effects, narration, and animation.

Pursue Love

“If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.”
(1st Corinthians 13:1 NASU)

When I was in the Army I was stationed in a foreign country for two years. Outside of our camp was a small country town. Every night the community had an hour of prayer and worship; we could easily hear the villagers worshiping their god. They would gather and begin their worship service with the sounding of a deafening gong, and then they would begin to loudly chant, then came the clanging of the cymbal. The sounding of the gong, the chant or the cymbal had no distinct sound such as a song or a tune of any sort, just noise. A good description of their worship would be---a very noisy religion.

If we as men of Christian religion speak with many languages, with all the eloquence of the most accomplished orator, and the heavenly languages of angels, and do not have love, we have become nothing but a noisy religion; we accomplish no more than the pagans. It profits us nothing.

“If I have the gift of prophesy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”
(1st Corinthians 13:2 NASU)

Though we as a “church,” if possible, could have received from God the knowledge of future events, so that we could correctly foretell what is coming to pass in the world and in the church; and know the meaning of all the types, shadows, numbers and symbols in the entire Holy Bible, and all the unexplored secrets of nature; and all knowledge of every human art and science; and thought we have all faith-such faith as would enable us even to remove mountains; or had such powerful discernment that we could solve the greatest difficulties, and do not have love for God and man, it profits us nothing (Matthew 7:22-23).

And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.”
(1st Corinthians 13:3 NASU)

If all that we had were dealt out in small portions, so as to benefit as many as possible, and yet were not done so with divine love toward God and toward man, it would be all false, hollow, hypocritical, and really of no value in regard to our own salvation. It would profit nothing. It would not be an act that would meet with Divine approval. Though good might be done to others, yet where the “motive” is wrong, it is not connected with God’s graces; it will not meet with Heaven’s praise.

Though we should even be willing to be martyred defending the name of Jesus, to lay down our life in the most painful manner, and have not love, it profits us nothing.

“Love never fails----.”
(1st Corinthians 13:8 NASU)

The flower of the grass blooms today and we behold its beauty and tomorrow it fades and falls to the ground. Like so is the glory of men, it too is tomorrow’s dust to be driven by the wind and scattered to the four corners of the earth; but love never falls away. Because love bears, believes, hopes, and endures all things; and while it does so it cannot fail; it is the means of preserving all the favors of God; indeed, properly speaking, it includes them all; and all receive their perfection from love.

Love to God and man can never be done away with. It is essential to life; without it there can be no communion with God; nor can any man have a preparation for eternal life whose heart and soul are not deeply imbued-saturated, as a garment that has been deeply soaked in dye -with God’s love. Without it there never was a true re-birth, nor ever can be; and it is not only necessary through life, but also will exist throughout eternity.

“But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
(1st Corinthians 13:13 NASU)

Without faith it is impossible to please God; and without it, we cannot partake of the grace that is brought to us in our Lord Jesus, for it is by faith that we receive this grace unto salvation. And without hope we could not endure, nor have any expectation of eternal life; nor bear up under the trials and tribulations of this life. But as great and useful and indispensably necessary as these are, love is greater, for one who actively possesses love fulfills the law.

By faith we receive grace from our Creator; by hope we expect a glorious future and eternal life; but by love the image of God is infused in the soul of man, for “God is love.” Thus by love we are in the image of God; and by it alone are we qualified to enjoy oneness with Him in this present age and throughout eternity. Faith and hope are perfected by love and is for man alone, but love interacts God and man. Faith is a treasure that is indispensable, and hope is the anchor that stabilizes our soul; but love to God and to our fellowman is the power that sustains and motivates us to be obedient sons of God. This one consideration is sufficient to show that love is greater than either faith or hope.

“Pursue love-----.”
(1st Corinthians 14:1 NASU)

We must first begin to pursue love through repentance. The love that is from God requires a heart that is empty. A heart filled with sin and earthly projects, carnal interests, ambition, thoughts of becoming rich in worldly goods, and with the lust for the luxuries and pleasures of life is not fit to receive the love of God. Thus repentance is the empting of one’s soul of sin and preparing the heart for the impartation of the love of God.

Following repentance, pursue love by earnestly desiring it; pray for it and strive to possess it; cultivate it in your own hearts, as the richest and best endowment of the Holy Spirit, and endeavor to diffuse its influence on all those around you; it is essential to the individual, it is vital to the Church. The gift of love is foremost of all other gifts of the Spirit. To practice all the other gifts without the gift of love would be an empty, worthless religion.

Therefore desire and seek faith, cherish hope, but pursue love with all your energies. Selah.

Love’s Nature

He who impatiently demands perfection in others is expecting from them that which he is unable to produce himself. But it is always easier for carnal man to demand perfection in others than it is for him to produce it. If we view our self as being perfect we are blind and deceived and will never see our own imperfections. In human relations one can best understand the imperfections of others by having knowledge and understanding of his own. Here enters experiences. Experiences or “trials” is like God holding a mirror before us and saying, “this is who you are;” and then pointing to His Son and saying, “I am creating you to be like Him.”

First in our experience with God is that of the love of God. We love our Heavenly Father because He first loved us. But in revealing to us His love God first had to show us the ugliness of our sin. Our ugly sin nature and His love for us both were revealed to us at the crucifixion of His Son Jesus. It was man’s sin nature that crucified Jesus and it was for our deliverance from that sin nature that He died. After we have seen our sin nature and experienced God’s love through repentance, He then begins to work patience in us. Before teaching us patients He must first reveal to us our impatience. Just as experiencing God’s love we learned love, so it is with patients also. We experience God’s patients toward us; in this same manner we learn patients toward others.

“Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant.”
(1st Corinthians 13:4 NASU)

Love’s essential character or nature is that of patients. One who possesses love seeks discernment and understanding that he may endure. Love’s nature is to patiently endure all the weakness, ignorance, errors, and other imperfections of those who are born of God; and all the malice and wickedness of the children of this world; and all this, not merely for a time, but without end; it is a state of mind or disposition, to the end of which trials and difficulties can never reach.

Love also waits for God’s time of accomplishing His gracious purposes, without discontentment or murmuring; and bears its own imperfections, as well as those of others, with humble submission to the will of God.

The carnal sin nature prompts to hatred, harshness, severity, and unkindness of expression, anger, and a desire of revenge. But love’s nature is the opposite of all these. Love is kind, good-natured, gentle, tender, affectionate and gracious. Love always prays for the well being of everyone. It is never harsh, gloomy and ill-natured toward anyone. Thus kindness seems to indicate that love is courteous, gentle and mild under all attempts at provocations and ill-treatment.

One who possesses a love that is not mingled with carnality is never jealous but rejoices as much at the happiness, honor, successes and comfort of others, as they do in their own. They are always willing that others should be preferred before them.

Love’s nature in a person produces a state of mind just the opposite of a disposition to boast. He receives whatever endowments he has with gratitude; regards them as the gift from God; and is pleased to employ them, not in vain boasting, but purposes to serve the body of Christ and in doing good favor to all others. To boast of one’s own talents is not to employ them to the advantage of others. One’s boasting is of no help in feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, comforting the sick and afflicted, or leading lost souls to Christ. Accordingly, the man who does the most good is the least likely to boast; the man who boasts may be regarded as doing nothing else.

One who is arrogant differs from the one who brags, inasmuch as that the word arrogant denotes the expression of the feelings of pride and vanity. A man may be unpleasantly or disdainfully self-important, haughty, very proud and vain, and not express it in the form of boasting. That state is indicated by the word “arrogant.” If he gives expression to this feeling, and boasts of his endowments, that is indicated by the word “brag.” Love prevents arrogance in a person, as it would boasting also. It would destroy the feeling, as well as the expression of it. It is not the nature of love to fill the mind with pride and vanity. Even knowledge may pollute the mind with the conviction of self-importance; but one who has love is humble, meek, modest and never imposing.

Love “does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered.”
(1st Corinthians 13:5 NASU)

“Unbecomingly” means to conduct improperly, or disgracefully, or in a manner to deserve reproach. Love keeps one’s conduct above reproach; it “does not act unbecomingly.” There may be included in the word also the idea that love prevents anything that would be a violation of decency or morality. Love seeks only that which is proper or becoming. There is much that is indecent and unbecomingly in the world today that would be corrected by an infusion of divine love.

Love “does not seek its own” meaning, that it is not selfish; it does not seek its own happiness exclusively or mainly; nor does it seek its own happiness to the injury of others. One who has love is never satisfied until he has seen to the welfare, comfort and salvation of other as he would his own. A person who seeks after nothing but his own welfare and happiness and does not care about the weak, poor, hungry, lame, blind and the lost sinner has need to fear for his own salvation.

A man who is under the influence of love is not inclined to violent anger or exasperation; it is not his character to be hasty, excited, or emotional. He is calm, serious, and patient. He looks soberly at things; and though he may be injured, he controls his emotions, restrains his temper and subdues his feelings.

Therefore he “does not take into account a wrong suffered.” His heart is so full of love for God and his fellowman that he cannot allow someone’s evil act against him to cause him to be bitter or to hate.

Love “does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;”
(1st Corinthians 13:6 NASU)

Love does not rejoice over the evil, wickedness or immorality of other people; does not take delight when they are found guilty of sin; love is saddened by such. It does not even find pleasure in hearing of others accused of sin. It does not find pleasure in the “report” that they have done wrong or in maliciously following up that report to prove it to be true. Although love may seek the validity of the report for the purpose of prayer or proper counsel it never seeks it out for the purpose of expressing joy over it or for the purpose of gossip.

Love “rejoices with truth.” The word “truth” here stands opposed to “iniquity,” and means moral excellence, righteousness, devotion, goodness and reverence. It does not rejoice in the “vices,” but in the “virtues” of others.

Love “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
(1st Corinthians 13:7 NASU)

The term “all things” must be limited to all that is morally, legally and spiritually right.

Love “bears all things” meaning: not given to gossip about others failings or shortcomings; while keeping the knowledge of them to himself, but bears or covers them through prayer and proper counsel whenever possible; i.e. “Love covers a multitude of sins.” Love always believes the best in every person; but when there is no place left for believing good of a person, then love comes in with its hope.

Love bears up under all persecutions and mistreatment from enemies and professed friends. Love bears trials and tribulations with an even mind, as it submits with perfect resignation to every dispensation of the divine care and guidance of God; knowing God’s grace is sufficient never says of any trial, affliction, or insult, “this cannot be endured.”

In summary, love is very active in the health, welfare and spiritual edification of all saints and sinners. God HATES SIN but loves the sinner!! Yet, while love hates sin, it loves the sinner and seeks to see him delivered from the bondage of sin regardless of race; whether he be rich or poor, clean or dirty, hansom or ugly, tall or short, male or female, a criminal or social worker, alcoholic or drug addict, or whatever; he that loves seeks out the lost that their soul might be saved; Christ died to take away (destroy) sin.

“If someone says, ‘I love God,’ and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.”
(1st John 4:20 NASU)

20% of Teenaged Girls have Sexually Transmitted Diseases

The M in MTV used to stand for music. Now, it stands for message, and a very important message needs to get into as many ears as possible.

Many news organizations in addition to MTV have reported the latest findings that a quarter of all girls in their teens have an STD.


I guess that we forgot all of a sudden that there is such a thing as cause and effect? Perhaps more teens will get turned on to the information presented by groups like Battlecry and especially the sex-related topics at The Powerhouse.

The Revival We Need

I was listening to a message delivered by Keith Green in 1979... but it is as relevant today (perhaps, even more so) than it was then.

Keith quoted from a book called “The Revival We Need” by Oswald J. Smith:

“It is reported that there were 7,000 churches that did not win a single soul for Jesus Christ in an entire year. That means that 7,000 ministers preached the Gospel for a whole year without reaching even one lost soul. Supposing that they preached, putting it at a low average, on 40 Sundays, not including extra meetings, that would mean that these 7,000 ministers preached 560,000 sermons in a single year. Think of the work, the labor, the money expended in salaries, etc., to make this possible. And yet 560,000 sermons preached by 7,000 ministers in 7,000 churches to tens of thousands of hearers during a period of twelve months, failed to bring a single soul to Christ.

“Now, my brethren, there is something radically wrong somewhere. There is either something the matter with these 7,000 ministers or else with their 560,000 sermons, or with both.

“In reading over the Twelve Rules of the Early Methodist church I was struck with the fact that they aimed at and looked upon soul-winning as their supreme task. Let me quote from one of them: ‘You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work. It is not your business to preach so many times; but to save as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance, and with all your power to build them up in that holiness, without which they cannot see the Lord.’--From ‘The Twelve Rules.’--John Wesley.”

I look at churches today and see a lot of music, a lot of preaching... but little to no soul winning. I was heartbroken when my local church took a table of tracts and other materials that we had set up and discarded the whole thing. It was not important to them to give the parishioners the tools to reach souls... but it seemed to be vitally important to emphasize them giving more money to pay the church’s bills.

We are at a critical time... with an ongoing war hemorrhaging trillions of dollars out of the economy, jobless rates and mortgage foreclosures skyrocketing, and politicians who would rather sling mud at each other than to meet the needs of their constituency. People need Jesus... and yet they are blinded to this fact. They are sinking down in quicksand and demanding their rights to do so.

Time to wake up, folks!

Evangelism isn’t just for evangelists... it is for all of us who can reach people where they are... and by any means necessary. It is too important to put a roadblock in front of souls who are careening at top speed towards a dark, eternal hell.

God’s love is great... and Jesus says to pray to the Lord of the harvest that workers go forth.

Will you pray? Will you be one who goes?

Love's Rest

“For thus the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said, in repentance and rest you will be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength.”
(Isaiah 30:15 NASU)

Godly repentance includes,

  1. A true sense of one’s own guilt and sinfulness;
  2. An apprehension of God’s love, mercy and the outpouring of grace in the person of Christ Jesus;
  3. An actual hatred of sin (Psalms 119:128; Job 42:5,6; 2nd Corinthians 7:10) and turning from transgressions of God’s law (sin) to faith in God through His Son Jesus; and
  4. A persistent endeavor after a holy life in expressions of love toward God through obedience to His commandments.

To love our Creator, our heavenly Father, is to enter into His rest, for love of God brings peace and quietness to the soul. The enmity of the sinful flesh has been removed in Christ Jesus; we now have peace with our Father.

The same is true of our fellowman. If we have love for one another we have peace in our souls, for again, all enmity is removed in Christ Jesus. To love one another is to love God and death no longer has any power over us (1st John 5:1-4).

Jesus says,

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
(Matthew 11:28-30 NASU)

Here, rest as trust in God’s divine care and guidance, becomes symbolic of salvation itself. Therefore, rest for man’s soul ultimately involves a relinquishing of human self assertion, a letting go of even the desire for human control, and turning to a total trust in God’s care and guidance.

The yoke is a symbol of subjection or enslavement to burdensome labor. Here our Lord is saying, put off the yoke of slavery to sin, ritualistic worship or worthless works and take upon you My yoke of rest. Unlike the taskmaster of slavery our Lord says, “--- learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” God’s children must learn from their Lord to be gentle and humble in heart.

The Psalmist exhorts us to "rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him (Psalms 37:7 KJV).

“Be silent to the Lord.” The Hebrew word means to be mute, silent, still: (Job 29:21; Leviticus 10:3; Lamentations 3:28). Hence, to be silent to anyone; that is, to listen to Him in silence; and the idea in the phrase here, “be silent to Jehovah,” is that of waiting in silent patience or confidence for His interposition; or, in other words, of leaving the whole matter with him without being anxious as to the result.

Willingness to rest is a sign of commitment to God; it is also viewed as freedom from anxiety. Moses paints a picture of “the beloved of the Lord” as someone who “rests in safety” and “rests between [God’s] shoulders” (Deuteronomy 33:12 NRSV). Also, in divine rest there is a refreshing of the soul.

The Prophet Isaiah writes,

“Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.”
(Isaiah 40:31 NASU)

The word rendered “wait” here, denotes properly to wait, in the sense of expecting. The phrase, “to wait on Yahweh,” means to wait for His help; that is, to trust in Him, to put our hope or confidence in Him. Those who wait for the Lord may be seen as the farmer who plants and cultivates his crops as he patiently waits upon the early and the latter rain---and then comes the harvest; the time of the gathering of the fruits of his labors.

“ (God) Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”
(Psalms 103:5 NASWU)

It has been a common and popular opinion that the eagle lives and retains his rigor to a great age; and, beyond the common lot of other birds, he molts in his old age, and renews his feathers, and with them his youth. And thus the metaphor, “so that your youth is renewed like the eagle” and “they will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles.”

“And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.”
(Isaiah 32:17 NASU)

Righteousness works and produces peace. If righteousness is cultivated the harvest is peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Spirit, and a sure and certain hope of everlasting life.

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”
(1st Peter 5:6-7 NASU)
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 4:6-7 NASU)

Anxiety about daily needs or worldly gains robs God’s children of their peace, quietness, confidence, faith and joy, thus they become weak and faint hearted. Jesus urges His children to cease from anxious striving, as they trust in Him to supply their needs (Matthew 6:25-32).

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
(Matthew 6:33-34 NASU)

The lesson taught here is: do not let the cares of the world distract you. Keep your focus on the kingdom of God and His righteousness; that is where your riches are; they are not in this world.

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!”
(Philippians 4:4 NASU)

New CD: Defender!

The Powerhouse Ministry has released its latest CD, an hour of power entitled DEFENDER! This hour of power teaches us that we need not fight, that our battles belong to the Lord! We can lead not with a punch or a kick, but with our praise.
Is there someone in your life who is messing with you? Don’t get mad at them.

Did someone cut you off in traffic? Don’t lose your witness by flipping them off and then letting them see your Jesus bumper sticker.

What should a person do when people try to bring us down... to rob us or cheat us... even try to destroy our lives?

The key is to take your eyes off of people and focus on the true enemy (satan). Then, take the battle to the Lord.

You can defeat more enemies with your praise than with your fists. How?

Listen to this intensive hour of power!

Our core scriptures in this teaching:

  • Proverbs 6:16-19
  • Isaiah 54:16-17
