Opening(Northumbria Community)

One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory.

Reflection & Prayer

“I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” – Genesis 12:3 (NLT)

Eze 25:6-7 – “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because you clapped and danced and cheered with glee at the destruction of my people, I will raise my fist of judgment against you. I will give you as plunder to many nations. I will cut you off from being a nation and destroy you completely. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”

Judgement

Sovereign Lord: you have made a covenant of blessing and protection with the Jewish people – to bless those who bless them and curse those who curse them. Your judgement on those who do the Jewish people harm or profit from doing them harm is absolute.

And, Lord, you have made a new covenant of blessing and protection with your people in the church through faith in Jesus Christ – to bless those who bless them and curse those who curse them. Your judgement on those who do Christians harm or profit from doing them harm is no less absolute.

Sovereign Lord: visit our world today – enact your righteous judgement on those who would persecute and oppress your people, both Jew and Christian. Expose their evil schemes and put them to shame – that all may know you are the Lord. Through Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Restoration

Eze 28:25-26 – “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: The people of Israel will again live in their own land, the land I gave my servant Jacob. For I will gather them from the distant lands where I have scattered them. I will reveal to the nations of the world my holiness among my people. They will live safely in Israel and build homes and plant vineyards. And when I punish the neighboring nations that treated them with contempt, they will know that I am the Lord their God.”

Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.
