"Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.
Joshua Chapter 23: Verse 14
I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves about on the ground.
I am the LORD who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy.
Leviticus Chapter 11: Verses 44 - 45
Come, children; raise your voices!
The King of Love comes from above,
The heavenly host rejoices.
The Babe lies in the manger;
God seeks His own, by angels known,
But unto men a Stranger.
Though weak and helpless lying,
From Him is giv'n through earth and Heav'n
New life, and peace undying.
But who on earth do greet Him?
A shepherd band with staff in hand
Sets forth by night to meet Him.
And lo! from eastward riding
The wise men three; the star they see,
And follow it confiding.
Oh, Hope of all the ages!
May we find grace to claim our place
Where shepherds kneel and sages.
