Dec 17: Proverbs 19; Revelation 6-8:6

Songs for today: 
We Three Kings of Orient are
Born in Bethlehem
Son of God

The foolishness of man ruins his way,
And his heart rages against the Lord.
•••
A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger,
And it is his glory to overlook a transgression.
•••
House and wealth are an inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the Lord.
•••
The fear of the Lord leads to life,
So that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.
•••
Cease listening, my son, to discipline,
And you will stray from the words of knowledge.
from Proverbs 19

Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold,
•••
Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
from Revelation 6

Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads.”
•••
I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cry out with a loud voice, saying,
“Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying,
“Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
•••
they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them. They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.”
from Revelation 7

Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it to the earth; and there followed peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
from Revelation 8
