The Majestic Promises Of the Twenty Third Psalm
By: Jack Heckathorne Author of the book “Separation of Church and God”
The LORD is my shepherd;
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.”(John 10: 27-30)
I shall not want.
“ But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”( Philippians 4:19)
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.”(Isaiah 26:3-4)
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
“To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” (Luke 1:79)
He restoreth my soul:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” (John 16:13)
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” ( Isaiah 41:10)
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. (Psalms 71:21)
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
“The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.” (Psalms 110:1-2)
Thou anointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. “(Ephesians 3:18-21)
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
“For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear (trust) him from generation to generation.” (Luke 1: 49-50)
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”
