The Day of our Deliverance
Isaiah 49:8-13 The Lord says: At the time of My favour, I will answer you, on the Day of Deliverance I will come to your aid. Your destiny is to be a light to the nations and you will restore the Land. Those in exile will go free, they will find a good Land to live in. My people will neither hunger or thirst, the sun will not distress them. I will guide them along level pathways, My people – coming from the North, the West and the South lands. Shout for joy, sing songs of triumph, for the Lord has comforted His people and has pity on them, in their distress.
Hosea 2:14-23 Now, I shall call My people and lead them into an empty place. I will encourage and strengthen them, there the Land will be restored, its vineyards and pastures. They will respond with thanksgiving and joy, calling Me “Husband”, as I will betroth Myself to them forever. I will tame the wild beasts and sweep all weapons of war off the face of the earth, so My people can live without fear. The Land will be productive and My righteous people will be My new sowing in My Holy Land. I will say: “You are My people”. They will say: “You are our God”. Romans 9:24-26
Isaiah 12:1-4 On that Day, we will praise You, though You were angry with us, now You comfort us. We are confident and unafraid. The Lord is our Deliverer, our refuge and defence. With joy, we will give thanks to Him for what He had done for us.

Jeremiah 31:2-3 At that time, I shall be the God of all the Israelites [Christians; Galatians 6:16] and they will be My people – a people that have escaped the sword and found favour in the desert. The Lord protected them, from afar He appeared to them, [2 Thess 1:10] He maintains His unfailing love for them, as from times past. [Not the Return, as yet]
Isaiah 14:32 The answer for the messengers is: The Lord has established Zion and in the Land there is a refuge for His people. [Every righteous Christian, Rev 5:9-10]
1 Peter 4:7-19 The end of the age is upon us, therefore we must lead righteous lives. Use the gifts you have in service to others. Do not be terrified by the fiery ordeal, which comes to test everyone, judgement is coming, those who continue in their faith and entrust their souls to Him – their Maker will not fail them.
