Blessed be the LORD who is holy and righteous.
The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them. The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness (Proverbs 11:3 & 5).
Integrity matters, saith the LORD. Righteousness also matters. But the ways of crockedness have neither integrity nor righteousness. How then shall the wicked enter into my gates? How shall they dwell in hope? All have rise up in rebellion. All have desire vanity. They have burden me and mocked me and bring shame into my dwelling place. They have offer up sacrifices unto me, unworthy for my sight. They have said, The LORD shall delight in our ways. But who have made me an unrighteous God? I am not a righteous and holy God who have laid down the foundations of the earth in truth? But they come to me with corruption. All their lies they hid in their hearts. Will God not know the truth? He has said in his heart, God has forgotten: he hide his face; he will never see it (Psalm 10:11). But thou art LORD God Almighty who knows all things, who sees all things, even the hidden things of the heart.
If we have forgotten the name of our God or stretch forth our hands to a strange god, shall not God search this out? For he knows the secrets of the heart (Psalm 44:20 & 21).
Be not deceive in your wickedness. God will not be mocked. For in the day of judgment the wicked shall find no joy. Turn from your wicked ways and seek the LORD in truth. Be holy as he is holy. Be holy as I am holy, saith the LORD. Stand up for justice. Preach the things of God, the truth. Build on the Rock, my Christ and my God. For the foundation of my God shall not be moved. Vanity shall not stand the test of the LORD my God. Then why desire it? Will hell rejoice in your souls? But he that seeks the God of Abraham, surely his soul shall rejoice. Bring into the tabernacle of God righteousness. Bring into his tabernacle a contrite heart and a broken Spirit. Offer thy whole heart unto God and he shall delight in thy thanksgiving. Lift up holy hands unto the LORD; for he is holy.
Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion (Psalm 134:1 – 3).
Be not afraid to stand up with the joys of the heaven and lift up our God. Lift him up; for righteousness’ sake do it. For Jerusalem’s sake tarry no more. Stretch forth thy hands and bless my God. Offer to him the joys of thy heart.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips ( Psalm 63:3 – 5).
I thank thee, O LORD, that you are our God. And in this hour let us draw near to you. Let us beseech you, O LORD God; for we know that your coming draweth near. Be lifted up on High, O LORD. Be blessed forever my God.
