Word of the Week – Final Three Words


I decided to do the last three words people suggested to me! Those words were covenant, tears, and cherubim. I’ll include my favorite few quotes and verses about each word.
Covenant

Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations. – Deuteronomy 7:9, KJV

God’s love is the most awesome thing about Him. It is not His justice, nor His majesty, nor even His blazing holiness, but the fact that He has made and keeps a covenant of personal commitment and love to His people. – Sinclair B. Ferguson

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. – Hebrews 13:20-21, KJV

Tears

For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. – Psalm 116:8, KJV

The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea. – Karen Blixen

And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. – Mark 9:24, KJV (read the rest of the story here)

Cherubim

And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. – Psalm 18:10, KJV

Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’S glory. – Ezekiel 10:4, KJV

Consider how august a privilege it is, when angels are present, and archangels throng around, when cherubim and seraphim encircle with their blaze the throne, that a mortal may approach with unrestrained confidence, and converse with heaven’s dread Sovereign! O, what honor was ever conferred like this? – John Chrysostom
