The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Daniel 7:9-14

9 "I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of Days sat down, whose garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like the pure wool. His throne was like the fiery flame, and His wheels as burning fire. 10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. Thousand thousands ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. 

11 "I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke; I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed and given to the burning flame. 12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. 

13 "I saw in the night visions, and behold, one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. 14 And there was given Him dominion and glory and a Kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Psalm 97 

1 The LORD reigneth, let the earth rejoice! 
Let the multitude of isles be glad thereof! 
2 Clouds and darkness are round about Him; 
righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne. 
3 A fire goeth before Him, 
and burneth up His enemies round about. 
4 His lightnings enlightened the world;
 the earth saw and trembled. 
5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, 
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 The heavens declare His righteousness, 
and all the people see His glory. 
7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols. 
Worship Him, all ye gods!

8 Zion heard and was glad, 
and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of Thy judgments, O LORD. 
9 For Thou, LORD, art high above all the earth; 
Thou art exalted far above all gods.

10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil! 
He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. 
11 Light is sown for the righteous, 
and gladness for the upright in heart. 
12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous, 
and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness. 

2 Peter 1:16-21

16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when there came such a voice to Him from the Excellent Glory: "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." 18 And this voice, which came from Heaven, we heard when we were with Him on the holy mount.

19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy, unto which ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn and the day star arise in your hearts, 20 knowing this first: that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in olden times by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Words of Worship - Matthew 17:5

"This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. Hear ye Him!"

Mark 9:2-13 

2 And after six days Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John, and led them up onto a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. 3 And His raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow, such as no fuller on earth could whiten them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter spoke and said to Jesus, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three tabernacles: one for Thee, one for Moses, and one for Elijah--" 6 for he knew not what to say, for they were sore afraid. 7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "THIS IS MY BELOVED SON: HEAR HIM!" 8 And suddenly when they had looked round about, they saw no man anymore, save Jesus only with them. 

9 And as they came down from the mountain, He charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of Man were risen from the dead. 10 And they kept that saying to themselves, questioning one another what "rising from the dead" should mean. 11 And they asked Him, saying, "Why say the scribes that first Elijah must come?" 12 And He answered and told them,

"Elijah verily cometh first and restoreth all things, and how it is written of the Son of Man that He must suffer many things and be set at nought. 13 But I say unto you that Elijah has indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they pleased, as it is written of him."


Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 9:6

For though a man be never so perfect among the children of men, 
yet if Thy wisdom be not with him, he shall be regarded as nothing.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 7:13-14

"Enter ye in at the strait gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
