2 For all these things my hand has made, and so they have come into being," says the LORD. "But this is the man I will look on [favorably]: he who is of a humble and contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.
5 Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at his word, "Your brothers who hate you, who exclude you for my name's sake, have said, 'Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy,' but they shall be put to shame."
12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation is to be delivered from sin. Salvation is being freed from even the desire of your sins." In His messages to the seven churches, Jesus mentions to every church, (all seven), how their works are key. Jesus said, I have not found your works perfect before God. Rev 3:2-3. Jesus wants perfect works.]
|Joel 2:6 |
6 Before them the people shall be much pained; all faces shall be pale.
