Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away
The sin of the world
John 1:29

He was despised and rejected of men
A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief
He gave His back to the smiters
And His cheeks to them that plucked off the hair
He hid not His face from shame and spitting
Isaiah 53:3 50:6

Surely He hath borne our griefs
And carry our sorrows
He was wounded for our transgressions
He was bruised for our iniquities
The chastisement of our peace was upon Him
Isaiah 53:4,5

And with His stripes we are healed Isaiah 53:5

All we like sheep have gone astray
We have turned every one to his own way
And the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all
Isaiah 53:6

All they that see Him laugh Him to scorn
They shout out their lips and shake their heads saying
Psalm 22:7

He trusted in God that He would deliver Him
Let Him deliver Him if He delight in Him
Psalm 22:8

Thy rebuke hath broken His heart
He is full of heaviness
He looked for some to have pity on Him
But there was no man neither found
He any to comfort Him
Psalm 69:20

Behold and see if there be any sorrow like unto His sorrow Lamentations

He was cut off out of the land of the living
For the transgression of Thy people was He stricken
Isaiah 53:8

But Thou didst not leave
His soul in hell nur didst Thou suffer
Thy Holy One to see corruption
Psallm 16:10

Lift up your heads
O ye gates and be ye lift up
Ye everlasting doors and the King of glory shall come in
Psalm 24:7-10

Who is the King of glory ?
The Lord strong and mighty
The Lord mighty in battle
Psalm 24:7-10

Lift up your heads, O ye gates and be ye lift up
Ye everlasting doors and the King of glory shall come in
Who is the King of glory ?
The Lord of Hosts
He is the King of glory
Psalm 24:7-10

Thou are gone up on high
Thou hast led captivity captive
And received gifts for men
Yea even for Thine enemies
That the Lord God might dwell among them
Psalm 68:18

The Lord gave the word : great was the company of the peachers Psalm 68:11

How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace
And bring glad tidings of good things
Romans 10:15

Their sound is gone out into all lands
And their words unto the ends of the world
Romans 10-18

Why do the nations so furiously rage together ?
And why do the people imagine a vain thing ?
The Kings of the earth rise up
And the rulers take counsel together against the Lord
And against His Anointed
Psalm 2:1,2

Let us break their bonds asunder
And cast away their yokes from us
Psalm 2:3

He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh them to scorn
The Lord shall have them in derision
Psalm 2:4

Thou shalt break them with a rod iron
Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel
Psalm 2:9

Hellelujah ! for the God omnipotent reigneth
The Kingdom of this world is become the kingdom of our Lord
And of His Christ, and He shall reign for ever and ever
King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Hellelujah !
Rev. 19:6
11:15 19:16

I know that my Redeemer liveth
And that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth
And though worms destroy this body
Yet in my flesh shall I see God
For now is Christ risen from the dead
The first fruits of them that sleep
I Cor 15:20

Since by man came death, by man also the resurrection of the dead
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive
I Cor 15:21,22

Behold, I tell you a mystery
We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet
I Cor 15:51,52

The trumpet shall sound
And the dead shall be raised incorruptible
And we shall be changed
I Cor 15:52

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
And hath redeemed us to God by His blood
To receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength
And honour, and glory, and blessing
Blessing and honour, glory and power
Be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne
And unto the Lamb for ever and ever
Amen !
Rev 5:9,12,13
