Worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+ that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing! Blessing and honor and glory and power be unto HIM that sitteth on the throne and unto The LAMB+ for ever and ever. Amen.

Scriptures courtesy of www.biblegateway.com Isaiah 11: 10 ~
And in that day there shall be a ROOT+ of Jesse,
which shall stand for an ENSIGN+ of the people;
to it shall the GENTILES seek:
and His+ rest shall be glorious.
Acts 11: 7-10 ~ And I heard a VOICE saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.But I said, Not so, LORD: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.But the VOICE answered me again from heaven,
What G0D hath cleansed,
that call not thou common.
And this was done three times:
and all were drawn up again into heaven.

What GOD hath cleansed !
O Glorious Day of His+ Appearing !
HE+ became INCARNATE, offering cleansing, peace, and goodwill toward the Jews and Gentiles, alike. HE+ is no respecter of persons.
HE+ became INCARNATE to obliterate the wall that sin, death, and hell had erected between GOD and His highest creation on earth, man... a wall devised by the satan, the hater of mankind.
Come, LORD JESUS. Show Thyself+ in Thy+ Kingly power to all whom THOU+ hast cleansed from sin.
How we long to seeThy+Day evidenced once again on earth, as Abraham sawThy+Glory.
How we long to seeThy+Day evidenced on earth as Moses and Elijah witnessed it, foreseeing theCHRISTUS VICTORover death, hell, and the grave, once and for all time.
How we long to seeThy+ Day as Peter, James, and John glimpsedThy+Glory on the Mount before the glory overwhelmed them.
How our hearts long to see THEE+, O SAVIOR CHRIST!
O CHRISTUS VICTOR, JESUS, Who+ alone is SAVIOR of this dead and dying world,our hearts pant after THEE+ as a doe longs for running streams. Hasten, Hasten the Day of Thy+Coming to us.
We thankTHEE+for Thy+ gladsome Promise:
I+ will come again and will take you unto Myself+.
I bind my heart toTHEE+... and toTHEE+alone,O LORD CHRIST.
O CHRISTUS VICTOR,rise up and show Thyself+. Let all those who hate THEE+ ... and Thy+ Rule ... flee before Thy+ Face, O VICTOR CHRIST ! Let GOD arise, let His enemies be scattered.
