" THE NEW THING"
"THE NEW THING!" Isa.42:8-9, I am the Lord, that is my name, and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven Images. Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare, before they spring forth I tell you of them. Isa. 43:18-19, Remember ye not the former things. neither consider the things of old Behold, I will do a new thing, now shall it spring forth, shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isa. 48:6-7, Thou hast heard, see all this, and will not ye declare it ? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things and thou didst not know them. They are created now, and not from the beginning, even before the day when thou heardest them not, lest thou shouldest say behold, I knew them. Isa. 65:17-18, Behold, I creat new heavens and a new earth, and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create, for behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a Joy. Isa. 66:22-23, For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me. Jer. 31:31, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah. Lam.3: 22-23, IT is of the Lords mercies that we are not comsumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness. Ezek.11:19-20, And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new Spirit with in you, and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh , and will give them a heart of flesh. That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them. and they shall be my people ,and I will be their God. Ezek.36:26-27, A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put with in you. and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit with in you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my Judgements, and do them.
