1 Timothy 5:18 "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning
2 Thessalonians 2:13 "But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the
Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth"
Ephesians 5:20 "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ"
Zechariah 1:7-11 "7 Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which the month Sebat, in the second year
of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,8 I saw by
night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that in the bottom; and behind him red
horses, speckled, and white.9 Then said I, O my lord, what these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew
thee what these.10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These whom the LORD hath sent to walk
to and fro through the earth. And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have
walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest"
Sebat = Rod
Rod = Jesus Christ
Isaiah 11:1-5 "1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch
shall grow out of his roots:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the
spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;3 And shall make him of quick understanding
in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:4
But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the
earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.5 And righteousness shall be the
girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins"
"all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest"
= Today, God's elect/chosen people are trusting in Christ alone for the Salvation of our souls.
2 Chronicles 20:17
"Ye shall not fight in this: set yourselves, stand ye and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem:
fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD with you"
Psalm 46:10-11 "10 Be still,
and know that I God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.11 The LORD of hosts with us; the
God of Jacob our refuge. Selah"
Jeremiah 30:10 "Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD;
neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob
shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make afraid"
Isaiah 14:3-5 "3 And it shall
come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein
thou wast made to serve.4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor
ceased! the golden city ceased!5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, [and] the sceptre of the rulers"
In November 1991 the Lord Jesus Christ brought Salvation to my soul, peace that passes all understanding. I went with the
oppressors (freewill of man doctrine teachers) according to God's purpose. In August 2003 the Lord Jesus Christ took me out
of Babylon (today's Christianity) He broke the staff of the wicked by making me see that physical water baptism, physical
tithing and physical communion are false visions. I was oppressed because they tried to make believe that Salvation is Christ
plus physical works (hard bondage) I have been celebrating thanksgiving day since the Lord Jesus Christ brought Salvation
to my soul; everyday I give Him thanks for choosing me to Salvation. I am not better than anybody else, just a sinner clothed
with Salvation. 25 years plus of service and the Lord Jesus Christ has been faithful by saying to my soul "I am Thy Salvation"
23:13-14 "13 Withhold not correction from the child: for thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.14 Thou shalt
beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell"
Remember: the Lord Jesus Christ is the Rod; a sound
doctrine that Christ came to save sinners is a correction for a child (just born spiritually)
Beat him with the rod
= preach again and again the work of Christ for His chosen people.
1 timothy 1:15 "This a faithful saying, and
worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief"
Psalm 95:1-3 "1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.2 Let us come
before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.3 For the LORD a great God, and a great
King above all gods"
2 Corinthians 12:9 "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength
is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ rest upon
Isaiah 32:17-19 "17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness
and assurance for ever.18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting
places;19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place"
In the midst
of falls, trials and tribulations, my soul rest at peace; secure in Christ: Salvation is of the Lord, sings my soul.
"The name of the LORD a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe"
Isaiah 14:17 "The whole earth is at rest, is quiet: they break forth into singing"
"I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with
PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
