And Moses went up unto God: and the Lord called unto
him out of the mountain: Saying: Thus shall thou say to the house of Jacob and tell
the children of Israel; Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians and how I
bare you on Eagle's wings and brought you unto myself. Now
therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a
peculiar treasure unto me above all people; for all the earth is mine; and ye shall be
unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words thou shalt
speak unto the children of Israel."
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the
Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of
He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.
Even thought youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not
Isaiah 40: 28-31 KJV
Participating in 1999 Oahu March for Jesus
Such is the reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward and with
reference to God.
Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal
judgments or to claim or to count anything as coming from us; but our power and ability
and sufficiency are from God.
[It is He] Who has qualified us (making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient) as
ministers and dispensers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not [ministers]
of the letter - that is, of legally written code - but of the Spirit, for the code [of the
Law] kills, but the (Holy) Spirit makes alive.

celebration at the Waikiki Shell
"Is this not the fast which I choose, To loosen the bonds of wickedness, To undo
the bands of the yoke, And to let the oppressed go free And break every yoke?
"Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry And bring the homeless poor into
the house; When you see the naked, to cover him; And not to hide yourself from your own
"Then your light will break out like the dawn, And your recovery will speedily
spring forth; And your righteousness will go before you; The glory of the LORD will be
your rear guard.
- Isaiah 58: 6-8 New American Standard Bible
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made
in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross.
Philippians 2: 5-8 King James Version
