Break forth together into singing, you waste places of Jerusalem, for the Lord has comforted His people;
He has redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord has bared His holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. (Isaiah 52:9-10)
This is what the LORD says:
“Let My people go, so that they may worship Me.” (Exodus 8:1)
This Beautiful PLACE A PLACE to Worship
Wherever You Are
The PLACE prepared for her in the wilderness.
Poured Out Worship The Set Apart Ones Set me as a SEAL on your HEART
A love song.
My heart overflows with a pleasing theme;
I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe. (Psalm 45:1)
The voice of One crying in the wilderness,
“Prepare the way of the Lord”
Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule in justice. Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land. (Isaiah 32:1-2)
For Behold the King is Coming!
Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem!
The Lord has taken away the judgments against you; He has cleared away your enemies.
The King of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst; you shall never again fear evil. (Zephaniah 3:14-15)
“I will never leave you; I will always be by your side.”
Because of this promise, we may boldly say,
The Lord is my help—I won’t be afraid of anything.
How can anyone harm me?
Protect me, God, for the only safety I know is found in the moments I seek You. (Psalm 16:1)seal.Stay focused; do not lose sight of mercy and truth;
engrave them on a pendant, and hang it around your neck;

(Proverbs 1:9) Proverbs 3:22
they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck.
She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.”
“Don’t quit, even if it costs you your life. Stay there believing. I have a Life-Crown sized and ready for you.” (Revelation 2:10)

Engrave them on a pendant, and hang it around your neck;

The woman fled into the wilderness, where God had prepared a place of refuge and safety where she could find sustenance.(Revelation 12:6)
When the dragon realized he had been cast down to the earth, he pursued the mother of the male infant.
In order to escape the serpent, she was given the two wings of the great eagle to fly deeper into the wilderness to her own special place where she would find sustenance for a time, and times, and half a time.
Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a raging river that chased after the woman, trying to sweep her away in the flood. But the earth came to her rescue. It opened its gaping mouth and swallowed the river that spewed from the dragon’s mouth. As a result, the dragon was enraged at the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children—those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the testimony of Jesus.
And the dragon stood waiting on the sand of the seashore. (Revelation 12: 13-18)
Mercy TRIUMPHS over Justice (Judgment!)
The Scripture gives as a law, to love our neighbor as ourselves. This law is a royal law, it comes from the King of kings; and if Christians act unjustly, they are convicted by the law as transgressors.
So let us step boldly to the throne of grace, where we can find mercy and grace to help when we need it most.
(Hebrews 4:16)For the LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. (Psalm 84:11)
A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. (Proverbs 19:11)
But God deems it His glory and joy, to pardon and bless those who might justly be condemned at His tribunal; and His grace teaches those who partake of His mercy, to copy it in their conduct.
Mercy GLORIES against Judgement! It is a victory cry!
You have TURNED my mourning into JOY.
Given me beauty for ashes…a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness.
You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace. (SoS 4:9)
Hungry and Thirsty for the King’s Love
How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much more pleasing is your love than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume more than any spice! (SOS 4:10
Some trust in horses Some trust in chariots I will TRUST in the NAME of the Lord God of Israel
See the NAME is His Authority for us to speak and act and represent Him on earth as it is in heaven. We are His.
Deep Calls Unto Deep
You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.
I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride; I have gathered my myrrh with my spice. I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey; I have drunk my wine and my milk. Friends Eat, friends, and drink; drink your fill of love. (SoS 5:1)
I slept but my heart was awake. Listen! My beloved is knocking: “Open to me, my sister, my darling, my dove, my flawless one. My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night.” (SoS 5:2)
Your song is with me ALL through the night
Still You command Your loving-kindness in the morning.
For He Alone Is Worthy
Those who cling to worthLESS idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs. ~Jonah 2:8
“The Lord knows those who belong to Him,” and “
Whoever worships the Lord must give up doing wrong.”
In a large house there are not only objects made of gold and silver,
but also those made of wood and clay.
Some objects are honored when they are used; others aren’t.
Those who stop associating with dishonorable people will be honored.
They will be set apart for the master’s use, prepared to do good things. (2 Tim 2:19-21)
Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. ~John 8:35-36
As Ruth who left behind her home, family and nation
to follow the Holy One of Israel clinging to her mother in law.
Love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as yourself.
As the woman with the alabaster box.
As David’s three mighty men who risked their lives
to fetch him water from the well in Bethlehem.
As Elisha who slew his team of twelve oxen and broke up their yoke
to use as kindling for a feast to follow the Holy One of Israel with Elijah the Prophet.
Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.
Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. (Psalm 85:9-12)
