The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Amos 5:14-24 

14 Seek good and not evil, that ye may live; 
and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. 
15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate. 
It may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.

16 Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord saith thus:
"Wailing shall be in all streets, and they shall say in all the highways, `Alas! Alas!'
And they shall call the husbandman to mourning,
and such as are skillful in lamentation to wailing.
17 And in all vineyards shall be wailing,
for I will pass through thee," saith the LORD.

18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! To what end is it for you? 
The day of the LORD is darkness, and not light: 
19 as if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him; 
or went into the house and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. 
20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? 
Even very dark, and no brightness in it?

21 "I hate, I despise your feast days, 
and I will not smell the scent in your solemn assemblies. 
22 Though ye offer Me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them; 
neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. 
23 Take thou away from Me the noise of thy songs, 
for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. 
24 But let judgment run down like waters, 
and righteousness as a mighty stream.

Psalm 50:1-15

1 The Mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
3 Our God shall come and shall not keep silence;
a devouring fire shall go before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him.
4 He shall call to the heavens from above and to the earth,
that He may judge His people:
5 "Gather My saints together unto Me,
those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice."
6 And the heavens shall declare His righteousness,
for God Himself is judge.

7 "Hear, O My people, and I will speak,
O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices
or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before Me.
9 I will take no bullock out of thy house,
nor hegoats out of thy folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is Mine
and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know all the fowls of the mountains,
and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
12 If I were hungry I would not tell thee,
for the world is Mine and the fullness thereof.
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,
or drink the blood of goats?

14 "Offer unto God thanksgiving,
and pay thy vows unto the Most High,
15 and call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me."

Words of Worship - James 1:18

Of His own will, He begot us by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Matthew 8:28-34

28 And when He had come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. 29 And behold, they cried out, saying, "What have we to do with Thee, Jesus, Thou Son of God? Art Thou come hither to torment us before the time?" 30 Now there was a good way off from them a herd of many swine feeding. 31 So the devils besought Him, saying, "If Thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine." 
32 And He said to them, 


And when they had come out, they went into the herd of swine, and behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea and perished in the waters. 33 And those who kept them fled and went their ways into the city, and told everything and what had befallen the ones possessed with the devils. 34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus. And when they saw Him, they besought Him that He would depart out of their borders.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 27:28

Mockery and reproach are from the proud; 
but vengeance, as a lion, shall lie in wait for them.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:11-12

Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you,
and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake.
Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in Heaven;
for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.
