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.

Jeremiah 31
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

Isaiah 28
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.

Psalm 118
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!

Daniel 9
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 desolate.


THE REMNANT

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 kissed him.”

Micah 5
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.

Isaiah 65
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.


"MY" SAVIOUR

Isaiah 61
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.

Psalm 5
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 deceitful man.
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 temple. ...
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 shield.

13 You shall SEEK Me and FIND Me when you shall SEARCH for Me with ALL your heart.

Proverbs 1
7 The FEAR of the Lord is the BEGINNING of knowledge.

Proverbs 15
33 The FEAR of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is HUMILITY.

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.

Job 40
12 Look on every one that is PROUD, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.

Is 14
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.’

Isaiah 57
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 ones.


Psalm 123
4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the SCORNING of those that are at ease, and with the CONTEMPT of the PROUD.

Proverbs 3
34 Surely He scorns the SCORNERS, but He gives GRACE unto the LOWLY.


IMPUTED (CHASHUB) RIGHTEOUSNESS

CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD

7 Blessed is the man that TRUSTS in the Lord, and whose HOPE the Lord is.


DON'T REJECT MESSIAH

Psalm 2
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 Zion.

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

Job 19
    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 within me.

Isaiah 26
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 the DEAD.

Daniel 12
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.

Psalm 16
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.
