Amos 7:12-17

12 Also Amaziah said unto Amos, "O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread and prophesy there. 13 But prophesy not again any more at Bethel; for it is the king's sanctuary, and it is the king's court." 

14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, "I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was a herdsman and a gatherer of sycamore fruit. 15 And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, `Go, prophesy unto My people Israel.' 16 Now therefore, hear thou the word of the LORD. Thou sayest, `Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac.' 17 Therefore thus saith the LORD: `Thy wife shall be a harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword; and thy land shall be divided by line, and thou shalt die in a polluted land. And Israel shall surely go into captivity forth from his land.'"

Psalm 85

1 LORD, Thou hast been favorable unto Thy land;
Thou hast released the captives of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people;
Thou hast covered all their sin.

3 Thou hast taken away all Thy wrath;
Thou hast turned Thyself from the fierceness of Thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation,
and cause Thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt Thou be angry with us for ever?
Wilt Thou draw out Thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt Thou not revive us again,
that Thy people may rejoice in Thee?
7 Show us Thy mercy, O LORD,
and grant us Thy salvation.

8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak,
for He will speak peace unto His people and to His saints; but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him,
that glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good,
and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before Him,
and shall set us in the way of His steps.

Ephesians 1:1-14 

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, 

To the saints who are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: 

2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, even as 4 He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to be His own adopted children by Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in His Beloved: 7 in Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace, 8 wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence. 9 He hath made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth, even in Him. 

11 In Christ also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will, 12 that we, who first trusted in Christ, should be to the praise of His glory. 13 In Christ ye also trusted after ye heard the word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation, in Whom also after ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 which is the pledge of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.

Words of Worship - Ephesians 1:17-18

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 

Mark 6:7-13 

7 And He called unto Him the twelve, and began to send them forth two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits, 8 and commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only -- no wallet, no bread, and no money in their purse, 9 but be shod with sandals, and not put on two coats. 10 And He said unto them, 

"In whatever place ye enter into a house, there abide until ye depart from that place. 11 And whosoever shall not receive you nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city." 

12 And they went out and preached that men should repent. 13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.


Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 22:16

He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, 
shall surely come to want.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 7:17

Even so, every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
