1. Luke 6:12-19 “And it came to pass in those days that he went out into the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God.And when it was day he called his disciples, and having chosen out twelve from them, whom also he named apostles: Simon, to whom also he gave the name of Peter, and Andrew his brother, [and] James and John, [and] Philip and Bartholomew, [and] Matthew and Thomas, James the [son] of Alphaeus and Simon who was called Zealot,[and] Judas [brother] of James, and Judas Iscariote, who was also [his] betrayer; and having descended with them, he stood on a level place, and a crowd of his disciples, and a great multitude of the people from all Judaea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; and those that were beset by unclean spirits were healed.And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power went out from him and healed all.”
2. Daniel 1:8-9 “And Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not pollute himself with the king’s delicate food, nor with the wine which he drank; and he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not have to pollute himself. And God granted Daniel favour and mercy before the prince of the eunuchs.”
3. Psalms 84:1-4 “How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts! My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she layeth her young, thine altars, O Jehovah of hosts, my King and my God. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be constantly praising thee. Selah.”
4. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 “for the Lord himself, with an assembling shout, with archangel’s voice and with trump of God, shall descend from heaven; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then *we*, the living who remain, shall be caught up together with them in [the] clouds, to meet the Lord in [the] air; and thus we shall be always with [the] Lord.”
