death and destruction. Remember the Bible calls him “the god of this world/age” 2 Corinth 4:4.

Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the
LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."

arise over you,And His glory will be seen upon you.

abundance of the sea shall be turned to you,The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven
19 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where

word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.
Joshua 3:3-4 (NKJV)
3 and they commanded the people, saying, "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD
your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go

come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way
What do you do in a place you’ve never been before?

over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed

may fear the LORD your God forever."

PROMISE - living by promise is far greater than living from hand to mouth!

2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
1 Thessalonians 5:8-9 (NKJV)

helmet the hope of salvation.

8 But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and
