1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion. we were like them that dream. 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter. and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen. The LORD hath done great things for them. 3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south. 5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
The Miracle Found in Going
23 And the lord said unto the servant. Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled
Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it alter many days.
5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side: and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.7 And some fell among thorns: and the thorns sprang up with it. and choked it.8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold.
Weeping – The Ministry of Tears
I Corinthians 3
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side: 4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
5 And to the others he said in mine hearing. Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare. neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young. both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at the sanctuary.
1 Timothy 2:1
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications. prayers. intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men:
11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: 12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
1 Samuel 3
1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.
2 Corinthians 4
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord: and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
