(week 02/17)

Last week, we saw that 2017 will be a year in which the FULNESS OF GOD’S MERCY will cause us to ALWAYS TRIUMPH.

The fullness of God’s mercy will come through the CONSTANT exercise of honesty of heart as shown in

Proverbs 28:13 KJV:  He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Acts 24:16 KJV:  And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.

James 2:13:  No mercy will be shown to those who show no mercy to others. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

This constant pursuit of mercy THROUGH HONESTY will give life, right-standing and honour:

Proverbs 21:21 NIV:  Whoever pursues righteousness and mercy will find life, righteousness, and honor.

God will use this life, right-doing and honour so received to give knowledge and wisdom, like Joseph did in Egypt, to stabilize the nations in this time of great moral, economic and political shaking of the nations fulfilling:

Haggai 2:7 KJV:  And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

Isaiah 33:6 KJV:  And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

Psalms 105:17-22 KJV:  He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: (18)  Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: (19)  Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him. (20)  The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. (21)  He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: (22)  To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

So the fulness of mercy will triumph and bring God’s blessings to the nations in 2017!
