Prosperity and Success

Prosperity and success is what comes out of your mouth.

"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy ways prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Joshua 1:8

Day 269

The 297 Day Bible – Day 269
Christ in the Prophets
Micah Chapter 5

1 But thou, Beth-lehem Ephrathah, which art little to be among the thousands of Judah, out of thee shall one come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from ancient days.

2 Therefore will He give them up, until the time that she who travaileth hath brought forth; then the residue of his brethren shall return with the children of Israel.

3 And he shall stand, and shall feed his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide, for then shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.

4 And this shall be peace: when the Assyrian shall come into our land, and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight princes among men.

5 And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod with the keen-edged sword; and he shall deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our border. {P}

6 And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples, as dew from the LORD, as showers upon the grass, that are not looked for from man, nor awaited at the hands of the sons of men. {P}

7 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep, who, if he go through, treadeth down and teareth in pieces, and there is none to deliver.

8 Let Thy hand be lifted up above Thine adversaries, and let all Thine enemies be cut off.

9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and will destroy thy chariots;

10 And I will cut off the cities of thy land, and will throw down all thy strongholds;

11 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thy hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers;

12 And I will cut off thy graven images and thy pillars out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thy hands.

13 And I will pluck up thy Asherim out of the midst of thee; and I will destroy thine enemies.

14 And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the nations, because they hearkened not. {P}

Micah Chapter 6

1 Hear ye now what the LORD saith:
Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.

2 Hear, O ye mountains, the LORD’S controversy, and ye enduring rocks, the foundations of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with His people, and He will plead with Israel.

3 O My people, what have I done unto thee? And wherein have I wearied thee? Testify against Me.

4 For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of bondage, and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.

5 O My people, remember now what Balak king of Moab devised, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him; from Shittim unto Gilgal, that ye may know the righteous acts of the LORD.

6 ‘Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before Him with burnt-offerings, with calves of a year old?

7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my first-born for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?’

8 It hath been told thee, O man, what is good, and what the LORD doth require of thee:
only to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God. {S}

9 Hark! the LORD crieth unto the city–
and it is wisdom to have regard for Thy name–
hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.

10 Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable?

11 ‘Shall I be pure with wicked balances, and with a bag of deceitful weights?’

12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.

13 Therefore I also do smite thee with a grievous wound; I do make thee desolate because of thy sins.

14 Thou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy sickness shall be in thine inward parts; and thou shalt conceive, but shalt not bring forth; and whomsoever thou bringest forth will I give up to the sword.

15 Thou shalt sow, but shalt not reap; thou shalt tread the olives, but shalt not anoint thee with oil; and the vintage, but shalt not drink wine.

16 For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I may make thee an astonishment, and the inhabitants thereof a hissing; and ye shall bear the reproach of My people. {P}

Christ in the Writings
Ezra Chapter 4

1 Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity were building a temple unto the LORD, the God of Israel;

2 then they drew near to Zerubbabel, and to the heads of fathers’ houses, and said unto them:
‘Let us build with you; for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto Him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assyria, who brought us up hither.’

3 But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the heads of fathers’ houses of Israel, said unto them: ‘Ye have nothing to do with us to build a house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD, the God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us.’

4 Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and harried them while they were building,

5 and hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.

6 And in the reign of Ahasuerus, in the beginning of his reign, wrote they an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem. {S}

7 And in the days of Artaxerxes wrote Bishlam, Mithredath, Tabeel, and the rest of his companions, unto Artaxerxes king of Persia; and the writing of the letter was written in the Aramaic character, and set forth in the Aramaic tongue. {P}

8 Rehum the commander and Shimshai the scribe wrote a letter against Jerusalem to Artaxerxes the king in this sort–

9 then wrote Rehum the commander, and Shimshai the scribe, and the rest of their companions; the Dinites, and the Apharesattechites, the Tarpelites, the Apharesites, the Archevites, the Babylonians, the Shushanchites, the Dehites, the Elamites,

10 and the rest of the nations whom the great and noble Asenappar brought over, and set in the city of Samaria, and the rest that are in the country beyond the River:–
‘And now–

11 this is the copy of the letter that they sent unto him, even unto Artaxerxes the king–thy servants the men beyond the River–
and now {P}

12 be it known unto the king, that the Jews that came up from thee are come to us unto Jerusalem; they are building the rebellious and the bad city, and have finished the walls, and are digging out the foundations.

13 Be it known now unto the king, that, if this city be builded, and the walls finished, they will not pay tribute, impost, or toll, and so thou wilt endamage the revenue of the kings.

14 Now because we eat the salt of the palace, and it is not meet for us to see the king’s dishonour, therefore have we sent and announced to the king,

15 that search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers; so shalt thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time; for which cause was this city laid waste.

16 We announce to the king that, if this city be builded, and the walls finished, by this means thou shalt have no portion beyond the River.’ {P}

17 Then sent the king an answer unto Rehum the commander, and to Shimshai the scribe, and to the rest of their companions that dwell in Samaria, and unto the rest beyond the River:
‘Peace, and now {S}

18 the letter which ye sent unto us hath been plainly read before me.

19 And I decreed, and search hath been made, and it is found that this city of old time hath made insurrection against kings, and that rebellion and sedition have been made therein.

20 There have been mighty kings also over Jerusalem, who have ruled over all the country beyond the River; and tribute, impost, and toll, was paid unto them.

21 Make ye now a decree to cause these men to cease, and that this city be not builded, until a decree shall be made by me.

22 And take heed that ye be not slack herein; why should damage grow to the hurt of the kings?’ {S}

23 Then when the copy of king Artaxerxes’ letter was read before Rehum, and Shimshai the scribe, and their companions, they went in haste to Jerusalem unto the Jews, and made them to cease by force and power. {S}

24 Then ceased the work of the house of God which is at Jerusalem; and it ceased unto the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia. {P}

Ezra Chapter 5

1 Now the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem; in the name of the God of Israel prophesied they unto them. {S}

2 Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem; and with them were the prophets of God, helping them. {P}

3 At the same time came to them Tattenai, the governor beyond the River, and Shethar-bozenai, and their companions, and said thus unto them:
‘Who gave you a decree to build this house, and to finish this structure?’ {S}

4 ‘Then spoke we unto them after this manner [, wrote they]:
What are the names of the men that build this building?’

5 But the eye of their God was upon the elders of the Jews, and they did not make them cease, till the matter should come to Darius, and then answer should be returned by letter concerning it. {P}

6 The copy of the letter that Tattenai, the governor beyond the River, and Shethar-bozenai, and his companions the Apharesachites, who were beyond the River, sent unto Darius the king;

7 they sent a letter unto him, wherein was written thus:
‘Unto Darius the king, all peace. {S}

8 Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judah, to the house of the great God, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth on with diligence and prospereth in their hands. {S}

9 Then asked we those elders, and said unto them thus:
Who gave you a decree to build this house, and to finish this wall?

10 We asked them their names also, to announce to thee, that we might write the names of the men that were at the head of them. {S}

11 And thus they returned us answer, saying:
We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house that was builded these many years ago, which a great king of Israel builded and finished.

12 But because that our fathers had provoked the God of heaven, He gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this house, and carried the people away into Babylon. {S}

13 But in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, Cyrus the king made a decree to build this house of God.

14 And the gold and silver vessels also of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple that was in Jerusalem, and brought them into the temple of Babylon, those did Cyrus the king take out of the temple of Babylon, and they were delivered unto one whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had made governor;

15 and he said unto him: Take these vessels, go, put them in the temple that is in Jerusalem, and let the house of God be builded in its place. {S}

16 Then came the same Sheshbazzar, and laid the foundations of the house of God which is in Jerusalem; and since that time even until now hath it been in building, and yet it is not completed.

17 Now therefore, if it seem good to the king, let search be made in the king’s treasure-house there, which is at Babylon, whether it be so, that a decree was made of Cyrus the king to build this house of God at Jerusalem, and let the king send his pleasure to us concerning this matter.’ {S}

JESUS’ Catholic birthday

"If observed at all, the celebration of Christ’s birth was usually lumped in with Epiphany (January 6), one of the church’s earliest established feasts. Some church leaders even opposed the idea of a birth celebration. Origen (c.185-c.254) preached that it would be wrong to honor Christ in the same way Pharaoh and Herod were honored. Birthdays were for pagan gods."

Happy Sabbath in JESUS name

48,1 A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.

48,2 Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised, in the city of our God, His holy mountain,

48,3 Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth; {N}
even mount Zion, the uttermost parts of the north, the city of the great King.

48,4 God in her palaces hath made Himself known for a stronghold.

48,5 For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, they came onward together.

48,6 They saw, straightway they were amazed; they were affrighted, they hasted away.

48,7 Trembling took hold of them there, pangs, as of a woman in travail.

48,8 With the east wind Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.

48,9 As we have heard, so have we seen {N}
in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God– {N}
God establish it for ever.

Selah

48,10 We have thought on Thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Thy temple.

48,11 As is Thy name, O God, so is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth; {N}
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.

48,12 Let mount Zion be glad, let the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of Thy judgments.

48,13 Walk about Zion, and go round about her; count the towers thereof.

48,14 Mark ye well her ramparts, traverse her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.

48,15 For such is God, our God, for ever and ever; He will guide us eternally. {P}
