There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. (Revelations 22:5)


Amen.


Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen. (Psalms 41:13)

 

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. (2 Corinthians 1:20)
