This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, for their righteousness is of Me, says the Lord:
The Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces and will swallow up Death forever! He will take away the rebuke of His people from all the Earth, for the Lord has spoken: I will ransom them from the power of Sheol, I will redeem them from Death. Where, O Death, are your plagues? For the Lord will not abandon the soul of the Holy One to Sheol. Yet, it was the will of the Lord to crush him, when his soul was made an offering for guilt: So that the dead shall live, and their bodies shall rise!
Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust! For your dew is like the dew of the morning, and the Earth will bring forth her dead. The ransomed of the Lord will return! They will enter Zion with singing, crowned with everlasting joy! Joy and gladness will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee! The light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, in the Day that the Lord binds up the breach of his people and heals the stroke of their wound!
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering towards us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. And this is the promise that He has promised us: Eternal Life!
For with God nothing shall be impossible. Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord. You shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit!
The Lord is faithful, who shall establish you and keep you from Evil in hope of Eternal Life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the world began: That we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith! Thus, through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, we are given great and precious promises: So repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit! For the promise is to you, and to your children, and even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
So, let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, for He is faithful that promised. He that overcomes, shall be clothed in white and God will not blot his name out of the Book of Life. In the world you shall have tribulation: But be cheerful, for the Lord Jesus Christ has overcome the world. If God is for us, who can be against us? And the Lord will be with you, he will not fail you, nor forsake you. The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against you in Judgment, you shall condemn. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ: For He has swallowed up Death in victory!
