The Blessings Of God's People

Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. 12 I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; 13 And forgettest the Lord thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? 14 The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail. 15 But I am the Lord thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The Lord of hosts is his name. 16 And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. God has people founded by grace through faith. Those who have trusted in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior made up of both Jews and Gentiles. God has a people founded on the promises of God to Abraham made up of only Jews. God introduced Himself to the world through these people. God gave His requirements for mankind (the Law) through these people. God has demonstrated His power through these people by giving them a land. God has saved the world through the Jews by giving us Jesus Christ and the Bible.
