1. END OF BATTLE
The Lord will bring our battles to a victorious end and grant us peace and rest. The Lord will crush satan under our feet.The enemy will not prevail against us.
He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth.He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;I will be exalted among the nations,I will be exalted in the earth.”
The Lord Almighty is with us;the God of Jacob is our fortress.
He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.
He grants peace to your borders and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.
For this is what the Lord says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream;
you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees.
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace and was strengthened. Living in the fear of the Lord and encouraged by the Holy Spirit, it increased in numbers.
And I tell you that you are Peter,and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
2. END OF INJUSTICE
The Lord will bring injustice to an end. He will answer the cry of His people. He will put an end to the wickedness of the wicked. He will grant justice to His people. No weapon formed against us will prosper. If God is on our side , who can prevail against us.
And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?
I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.
May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,
to carry out the sentence written against them— this is the glory of all his faithful people.Praise the Lord.
Arise, Lord, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice.
Let the assembled peoples gather around you, while you sit enthroned over them on high.
Let the Lord judge the peoples. Vindicate me, Lord, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.
Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure— you, the righteous God who probes minds and hearts.
My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.
God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day.
If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow.
He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.
Whoever is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment.
Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit they have made.
