1 Samuel 2
1 Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoices in the Lord, ...
because I rejoice in thy SALVATION.
WHERE IS ELIJAH?
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
2 Kings 2
11 It came to pass, as they still went on and talked, that,
behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire, and
parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into
heaven. 12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, “My father, my
father, the chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof!” And he
saw him no more.
EVERYONE EITHER KNOWS GOD OR DOES NOT KNOW GOD
1 Samuel 2:12, 4:4
Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they KNEW NOT the Lord
... and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there
with the ark of the covenant of God.
34 They shall teach no more every man his neighbor and every man
his brother, saying, ‘KNOW the Lord.’ For they shall all KNOW
Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them,” says the
Lord, “for I will FORGIVE their iniquity, and I will remember
their sin no more.”
THE MANY AND THE FEW
14 Hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that RULE this
people which is in Jerusalem. 15 Because you have said, We
have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at
agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it
shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and
under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16 Therefore thus
says the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a
stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure
foundation: he that BELIEVETH shall not make haste. ... 18 And
your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your
agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing
scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
... 22 for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a
CONSUMPTION, even determined upon the whole earth.
21 I will praise You, for You have heard me and are become my
SALVATION. 22 The stone which the BUILDERS REFUSED has become
the head stone of the corner. 23 This is the Lord’s doing; it is
marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day which the Lord hath
made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. ... 26 Blessed be he
that COMES in the name of the Lord!
26 And after sixty two weeks shall MESSIAH be cut off, but not
for himself: and the PEOPLE of the PRINCE that shall come shall
destroy the city and the sanctuary .... 27 And he [the Prince
that shall come] shall confirm the covenant with MANY for one
week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice
and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of
abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the
CONSUMPTION, and that determined shall be poured upon the
1 Kings 19
18 Yet I have left Me SEVEN THOUSAND in Israel, all the knees
which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which has not
1 They shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the
cheek. 2 But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you be little
among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth
unto Me He that is to be ruler in Israel, whose GOINGS FORTH
have been from of old, from everlasting. 3 Therefore will He
give them up, until the time that she who travails has brought
forth; then the REMNANT of His brethren shall return unto the
children of Israel. 4 And He shall stand and feed them in the
strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His
God. And they shall abide; for now shall He be great unto the
ends of the earth.
8 Thus says the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster,
and one says, ‘Destroy it not, for a blessing is in it,’ so will
I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all. 9
And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an
inheritor of My mountains; and Mine ELECT shall inherit it, and
My servants shall dwell there. 10 And Sharon shall be a fold of
flocks, and the Valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie
down in, for My people that have SOUGHT Me.
10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful
in MY God; for he has clothed me with the garments of SALVATION,
he has COVERED me with the robe of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Give ear to my words, O Lord; consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, MY King and MY God, for unto
You will I pray.
3 My voice shall You hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning
will I direct my prayer unto You and will look up.
4 For You are not a God that has pleasure in wickedness; neither
shall evil dwell with You ... the Lord will abhor the bloody and
7 But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of
Your MERCY, and in Your FEAR will I worship toward Your holy
11 Let all those that put their TRUST in You rejoice; let them
ever shout for joy, because You defend them; let them also that
love Your name be joyful in You. 12 For You, Lord, will bless
the RIGHTEOUS; with FAVOR will You compass him about as with a
13 You shall SEEK Me and FIND Me when you shall SEARCH for Me
with ALL your heart.
29 But if from there you shall SEEK the Lord your God, you shall
FIND Him, if you SEEK Him with ALL your heart and with ALL your
10 The FEAR of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom.
7 The FEAR of the Lord is the BEGINNING of knowledge.
33 The FEAR of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before
honor is HUMILITY.
30 Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman who FEARS
the Lord, she shall be praised!
BE HUMBLE, NOT PROUD OR SCORNFUL
5 Everyone that is PROUD in heart is an abomination to the Lord;
though they join hands, they shall not go unpunished.
12 Look on every one that is PROUD, and bring him low; and tread
down the wicked in their place.
12 How art you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the
morning! How art you cut down to the ground, who did weaken the
nations! 13 For you have said in your heart, ‘-I- will
ascend into heaven, -I- will exalt my throne above the
stars of God; -I- will sit also upon the mount of the
congregation, in the sides of the north. 14 -I- will
ascend above the heights of the clouds; -I- will be like
the Most High.’
15 For thus saith the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity,
whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place with him
also that is of a CONTRITE and HUMBLE spirit, to revive the
spirit of the HUMBLE and to revive the heart of the CONTRITE
4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the SCORNING of those that
are at ease, and with the CONTEMPT of the PROUD.
34 Surely He scorns the SCORNERS, but He gives GRACE unto the
IMPUTED (CHASHUB) RIGHTEOUSNESS
2 Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord IMPUTES [Chashub] not
INIQUITY, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
And he BELIEVED in the Lord; and He ACCOUNTED [Chashub] it to
him for RIGHTEOUSNESS.
THE JEWISH COVENANTS
CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD
32 And it shall come to pass, that WHOEVER shall CALL ON THE
NAME OF THE LORD shall be DELIVERED; for in Mount Zion and in
Jerusalem shall be DELIVERANCE, as the Lord has said, and in the
REMNANT whom the Lord shall CALL.
7 Blessed is the man that TRUSTS in the Lord, and whose HOPE the
DON'T REJECT MESSIAH
David: Why do the heathen rage, and the people
devise a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and
the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against
HIS MESSIAH, saying,
Kings of the Earth: Let us break Their bonds
asunder, and cast away Their cords from us.
David: He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh;
the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then shall He speak unto
them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure:
God: Yet have I set My King upon My holy hill of
Messiah: I will declare the decree: The Lord has
said unto Me, ‘You are My SON; this day have I begotten you. Ask
of Me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance,
and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession. You
shalt break them with a rod of iron; you shalt dash them to
pieces like a potter’s vessel.
David: Be wise now therefore, O you kings; be
instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with FEAR and
rejoice with trembling. KISS THE SON, lest He be angry and you
perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are ALL they that PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM.
RESURRECTION AND JUDGMENT COMING
17 My breath is strange to my wife, though I
entreated for the sake of the children of my own body. ... 19
All my intimate friends abhorred me, and they whom I loved are
turned against me. 20 My bone cleaves to my skin and to my
flesh, and I have escaped [death] with the skin of my teeth. 21
“Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O you my friends, for the
hand of God hath touched me! ...
23 Oh, that my words were now written! Oh,
that they were printed in a book, 24 that they were graven with
an iron pen and lead, in the rock for ever!
25 For I know that MY REDEEMER LIVES, and
that He shall stand at the LATTER DAY upon the earth; 26 and
though after my skin, WORMS DESTROY THIS BODY, yet IN MY FLESH
shall I see God, 27 whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes
shall behold, and not another, though my reins be consumed
19 Thy DEAD men shall LIVE; together with MY DEAD BODY shall
they ARISE. Awake and sing, you that dwell in DUST; for
your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the EARTH shall cast out
1 At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who
stands for the children of your people; and there shall be a
time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation,
even to that same time. And at that time your people shall be
delivered, every one who shall be found WRITTEN IN THE BOOK. 2
And many of those who SLEEP IN THE DUST OF THE EARTH shall
awake, some to EVERLASTING LIFE, and some to shame and
EVERLASTING CONTEMPT. 3 And they that are wise shall SHINE as
the brightness of the firmament, and they that turn many to
righteousness as the stars FOR EVER AND EVER. 4 But you, O
Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of
the END. ... 8 Then said I, “O my lord, what shall be the end of
these things?” 9 And he said, “Go thy way, Daniel, for the words
are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. ... 11 And
from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and
THE ABOMINATION THAT MAKES DESOLATE set up, there shall be a
thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that
waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred and thirty five
days. 13 But go you your way till the end be; for you shall
REST, and STAND IN THY LOT at the end of the days.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; my FLESH
also shall REST in HOPE. 10 For You will not leave my soul in
HELL; neither will You allow Your HOLY ONE to see CORRUPTION. 11
You will show me the path of LIFE; in Your PRESENCE is fullness
of joy; at Your RIGHT HAND there are pleasures FOR EVERMORE.
