The Righteous Judge and Savior
Isa 33:20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.
Looking to Jerusalem, a city of peace.

The tabernacle that shall not be taken down is the risen Savior, the returning King. He shall rule in righteousness and His enemies shall be destroyed.
Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

The presence of the Lord brings rivers of living water; the presence of His Holy Spirit.

Psa 78:16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.

James 4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
Isa 33:23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.
No ship shall sail on these rivers, no invading army to take spoil. The lame, the broken and the humble shall take of the goodness of the Lord.
1 Cor 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1 Cor 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 1 Cor 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
Isa 33:24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
We are children of God who walk in the light of his truth.
1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Rom 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
What a blessing to be saved from sins, to be chosen and forgiven and lifted up to dwell with the Lord. We are his children who walk in truth doing good works. No religious spirit can touch us in the hand of God. We belong to him and will dwell with him in Zion, in earth and in heaven, forever his. Rejoice in this Saints of God and pray for the lost, so that they may escape the judgement of God on sin.
LORD GOD, strengthen your children to be lights in a dark world. The return of Jesus is near, may we keep our faith burning bright. He shall rule and reign and we will be his forever. We thank you in Jesus name, amen
