Psalm 112: 6-10 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” – Part 2

Psa 112:6  Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. 
Psa 112:7  He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. 
Psa 112:8  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. 
Psa 112:9  He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour. 
Psa 112:10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish. 

This week’s study points to how God’s elect will not be moved for everH5769: and shall be in everlastingH5769 remembrance as a result of being His workmanship in this age, who are being saved by the gift of grace through faith.

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 
Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast. 
Eph 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 

Heb 12:6  For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 

H5769  ‛ôlâm  ‛ôlâm   o-lawm’, o-lawm’

From H5956; properly concealed, that is, the vanishing point; generally time out of mind (past or future), that is, (practically) eternity; frequentative adverbially (especially with prepositional prefix) always: – always (-s), ancient (time), any more, continuance, eternal, (for, [n-]) ever (-lasting, -more, of old), lasting, long (time), (of) old (time), perpetual, at any time, (beginning of the) world (+ without end). Compare H5331, H5703.

‘Olawm,’ like ‘aion’ is a period of time with a beginning and an end. It may be very long or it may be very short, but in any case, it has nothing to do with eternity” (excerpt from:  http://www.iswasandwillbe.com/the-better-resurrection/)

God is preparing the hearts of His people to be able to heed the admonitions He gives us, and makes it possible for us to be more than conquerors through Christ (Rom 8:37). We “will not be moved for everH5769: and shall be in everlastingH5769 remembrance” is another way of saying that God’s elect will be recipients of the first commandment with promise (a parable) mentioned in Ephesians 6:2-3. The first commandment with promise applies to the kind of first fruits to which we are likened in James 1:18, and these following three verses remind us that God does not forget the rest of His creation but has a specific order in which all men will be saved.

Eph 6:2  Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 
Eph 6:3  That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. [the promise is not eternity but to “live long on the earth” during that ‘aion’ in which we will rule and reign under Christ (Rev 20:6)]

Luk 16:25  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 

Luk 15:31  And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. 
Luk 15:32  It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. 

1Co 15:23  But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

We gain our life by losing it, and we lose it when the hedge is taken down and we are crushed under the stone and judged, being brought to see the true nature of our heart which is typified in the story of the prodigal son (Mat 21:44). The other son in the story of the prodigal represents that period when we are hedged up and are confident in our relationship with our Father, not knowing yet what is within us. The older son also represents those who are held back, and “all that I have is thine” is stated because we are rich and increased with goods and don’t see the need for that part of us to be tried in the fire or to go through the trial of our faith (Rev 3:17). Christ could have just as easily been speaking to the older son in the story of the prodigal when He said these words “But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things [“and all that I have is thine”, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented”.

Luk 16:25  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Luk 15:31  And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. 
Luk 15:32  It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. 

1Co 15:23  But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. 

When we read therefore “He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD” and “His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies” as well as “He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor“, we can understand that this is all only possible because of our hope of glory within, which gives us great reason to rejoice in Him always as we learn of His faithfulness to be with us through the much tribulation of this life which enables us to enter into the kingdom.

Col 1:24  Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church: 

Php 4:4  Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. 

Col 1:27  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 

Act 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. 

We will be able to eventually heed all the admonitions which God instructs us to receive, and again only because Christ is the one who is making it possible, accomplishing this miracle of overcoming little and by little (Deu 7:22) so that “his horn [power] shall be exalted with honour” within us, by destroying the wicked within us, as it is stated in the last verse, “he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Overcoming the heaviness and sorrow of this life can only come about by the destruction of that man of sin within us through Christ (2Th 2:8, 1Jn 4:4, 1Jn 2:16), and this is being accomplished through fervent love and forgiveness. God has called and chosen us to be ready to demonstrate that love and care for each other in the most trying circumstances, as we are learning. He is preparing our hearts today to accomplish what will just naturally cause the love of many to wax cold at the end of the age even while his ‘disciples indeed’ shall be known by the love that they have to one another; love that is formed by being blessed to continue in His word.

1Pe 4:8  And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Eph 4:32  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. 

Mat 24:12  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 

Joh 13:35  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Joh 8:31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 
Joh 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

The modus operandi of Satan never changes – to try to rule over God’s elect as these verses demonstrate (Gen 6:7, Mat 24:24, Mat 10:16), but neither does God’s promise that we will be more than conquerors through Christ, so at the end of the day we will drink the cup (Mat 20:23) which God gives us and learn that all His promises toward us are true and are able to be accomplished by Christ giving us the power to overcome and fulfill them (Mat 10:16-22). There truly is no condemnation in the Lord even as we go through this process of overcoming the wicked one in the most difficult of circumstances (Rom 8:1-2, 2Co 3:17).

Gen 4:7  If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. [we don’t naturally do well and the reason we are accepted and able to do well is because “he has made us accepted in the beloved” who is doing the work within us and giving us the power to overcome little and by little  (Eph 1:6, Rom 15:7)]

Eph 1:6  To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. 
Eph 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 

Rom 15:7  Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.

We receive each other in the Lord and follow each other as we follow Christ (1Co_11:1) to the end that we can be overcomers together of those events which God puts us up against to mature us as His children. Like the butterfly in the chrysalis that needs the struggle to break out of the cocoon otherwise it would not be able to fly and would remain grounded, but thanks be to God we can endure all things through Christ as we put off this flesh and learn of His righteousness through these struggles (Php 4:13, Mat 24:13).

Here are some of the struggles, the “much tribulation” (Act 14:22) with which God has blessed us and tells us that through Christ and His body we will be able to overcome:

Mat 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 

Mat 10:16  Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 
Mat 10:17  But beware of men [false Christs and false prophets who show these great signs and wonders]: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; 
Mat 10:18  And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 
Mat 10:19  But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 
Mat 10:20  For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. [where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty]
Mat 10:21  And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 
Mat 10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. 

Rom 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. [Joh_6:63 , Joh_14:23]

Rom 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 

2Co 3:17  Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 

Here is a list of events which Christ prophesied would cause both the love of many to “wax cold” while at the same time witnessing the power of God working in the very small remnant since Pentecost who our Father has promised will be more than conquerors through Christ (Rom 8:37, Luk 12:32). God’s elect acknowledge that all of these words in Matthew 24:24-51 apply inwardly in their appointed time in each of their lives, but also understand that there is a culmination of these events and an outward fulfillment which must manifest to show us who He predestined from the foundation of the world to be in that blessed and holy first resurrection (Zec 4:6, Mat 24:13, Php 4:13, Rev 20:6).

Mat 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 
Mat 24:25  Behold, I have told you before. 
Mat 24:26  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 
Mat 24:27  For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be (2Th 2:8, Luk 17:20-21, Joh 7:24).
Mat 24:28  For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 
Mat 24:29  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 
Mat 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [inward application and dispensation outward fulfillment to happen as well]
Mat 24:31  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 
Mat 24:32  Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 
Mat 24:33  So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 
Mat 24:34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 
Mat 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 
Mat 24:36  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 
Mat 24:37  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 
Mat 24:38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 
Mat 24:39  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 
Mat 24:40  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 
Mat 24:41  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 
Mat 24:42  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 
Mat 24:43  But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up (2Pe 1:5-8).
Mat 24:44  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 
Mat 24:45  Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made [God had determined from the foundation of the world that we would be more than conquerers through Christ doing these works that He ordainedwhom his lord hath made“] ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 
Mat 24:46  Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 
Mat 24:47  Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 
Mat 24:48  But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
Mat 24:49  And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 
Mat 24:50  The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 
Mat 24:51  And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

It is “by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God“, and it will be by that grace and faith of our Father that God’s elect will not say “My lord delayeth his coming” but will rather endure until the end and go through the seven (meaning ‘complete’) symbolic falls which we can and must endure in order to go unto perfection on the third day.

Pro 24:16  For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. 

Luk 13:32  And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected. 

Psa 112:6  Surely he shall not be moved for everH5769: the righteous shall be in everlastingH5769 remembranceH2143. 

God will show the world, through the church, what it takes to form the body of Christ that “shall not be moved for ever“. 

CLV: Truly he shall not slip for the eon; The righteous one shall become an eonian remembrance.

Rotherham: Surely, unto times age-abiding, shall he not be shaken, In remembrance, age-abiding, shall the righteous one remain; 

YLT: For–to the age he is not moved; For a memorial age-during is the righteous.  

We are his workmanship, and we are becoming like our Father who does not change, and it is because we will eventually not change or “shall be in everlasting remembranceH2143” that others will learn and discern what God says is His righteousness within us, as opposed to what flesh defines as righteousness.

Mal 3:6  For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. 

Mal 3:18  Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not. 

Exo 3:15  And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorialH2143 unto all generations.

Psa 135:13  Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorialH2143, O LORD, throughout all generations. 

Psa 6:5  For in death there is no remembranceH2143 of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? 

Psa 30:4  Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembranceH2143 of his holiness. 

Psa 97:12  Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembranceH2143 of his holiness. 

Psa 112:7  He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. 

We live in an age of “evil tidings” where men’s hearts are not fixed [Traitors, heady, highminded] or able to trust in the LORD as prophesied in the book of Timothy.

2Ti 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 
2Ti 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 
2Ti 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 
2Ti 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 
2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 
2Ti 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 
2Ti 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (Mat 24:40-41).
2Ti 3:8  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses [the spirit of this age to come up against Christ and His Christ], so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith (Rom 10:17, Mat 15:7-8, Php 1:29, Joh 6:29, Joh 8:31, Jas 2:19).
2Ti 3:9  But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. 
2Ti 3:10  But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 
2Ti 3:11  Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. [Because it was appointed to Paul not only to believe, just as it is with all of us, but also to suffer and to be delivered bythe Lord” (Php 1:29)].
2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 
2Ti 3:13  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 
2Ti 3:14  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned (Joh 8:35-36, Joh 8:31-32) and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 
2Ti 3:15  And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 
2Ti 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 
2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (which refers back to our fist verse tonight and is the reason we are not afraid of these evil tidings: Psa 112:6  Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance).

Psa 112:8  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. 

The story of king David slaying Goliath is introduced right after the story of Saul worshipping God after his flesh in his own strength, with sacrifices in the flesh rather than spiritual obedience (1Sa 15:7-24). A contrast is being drawn for us between these two stories so that we see the difference between operating in our ‘religious flesh’ as opposed to being saved by the hand of the Lord and not of works, lest any man should boast. There were still works being produced in the life of king David, but they were acknowledged as the work of the Lord and were done to His glory alone [five smooth stones = grace and faith (1Sa 17:40)], as opposed to Saul’s disobedience to the commands of the Lord that said to slay them all (Eph 2:8-9, 1Sa 15:3-23)

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 
Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast. 

1Sa 15:3  Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. 

David’s heart was established to do the work which God had set before him (1Sa 17:34-36) and the giant Goliath was symbolic bread for David that provoked the whole camp of Israel unto battle (1Sa 17:52), an event and battle that is synonymous with provoking one another unto love and good works (Num 14:9, Heb 10:24-25, 1Co 10:16)

1Sa 17:34  And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: 
1Sa 17:35  And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. 
1Sa 17:36  Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. 

1Sa 17:52  And the men of Israel and of Judah arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines, until thou come to the valley, and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell down by the way to Shaaraim, even unto Gath, and unto Ekron. 

Num 14:9  Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not. 

Heb 10:24  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 
Heb 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 

1Co 10:16  The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 

We shall eventually “not be afraid” because Christ cannot deny himself [his body the church (Col 1:24)], and we will finish this work of faith that must be contrasted with our weak flesh that naturally denies Christ and is afraid until we are given the power to overcome (Mat 26:34). We are spoken of as the generation which has no confidence in the flesh (2Ti 2:13, Php 1:6, Php 3:3) and are blessed to know that the flesh will be put off as God gives the increase and, “he see his desire upon his enemies“, the flesh that is against the spirit (Gal 5:17).

Psa 112:9  He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour. 

God dispersesH6340 bountifully through the church and gives liberally to those whose hearts He has soften and made to hunger and thirst for righteousness. We are humbled under His mighty hand and caused to be contrite so God can write His laws on our hearts. The world is being witnessed to through the church, through the two witnesses that “his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn [power] shall be exalted with honour“.

Eph 3:10  To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, 

2Co 2:14  Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 

Mat 5:6  Blessed [we are blessed of the Lord to have these changed hearts]are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 

Isa 66:2  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

Joh 6:44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. [Eph_2:6]

1Pe 5:6  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:  [Eph_2:6]

Php 2:13  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. [including our desire to “hunger and thirst after righteousness”]

Jer 31:33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Rev 11:3  And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 

Rev 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 

Psa 112:10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish. 

This last verse would make no sense if we attributed the “wicked” and those who “be grieved” or “gnash with his teeth” or “melt away” to anyone else but ourselves! We are ‘the man’ as David confessed to Nathan, and what we are being told from cover to cover throughout scripture is that “the desire of the wicked shall perish”. That desire is within each and everyone who has ever drawn breath, and is conquered by God alone giving us dominion over sin via the holy spirit.

2Sa 12:7  And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;  

Psa 37:18  The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. 
Psa 37:19  They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 
Psa 37:20  But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. 
Psa 37:21  The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. 
Psa 37:22  For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. 
Psa 37:23  The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. 
Psa 37:24  Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 

Joh 8:36  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
