Rewards Of Rejoicing, Bounty, & Rest

Friends,
It is remarkable how israeliteindeed always seems to post something the Lord gives her that is similar to what He is speaking to me that very day.

(v. 23)

The Lord Jesus Christ has overcome death, and will overcome it finally in the last Day. As He has called me out of my spiritual grave and made me to walk in newness of life, He will call me from
