Ano ba ang pangangailangan ng ating bansa? • Our Church? Our Family? • What does our country need to know? Ano ba ang dapat malaman ng ating bansa?Isaiah 40:21 • Don’t you know? • Haven’t you heard? • Haven’t you been told from the beginning? • Don’t you understand the foundations of the earth?Isaiah 40:21Don’t you know? Haven’t you heard? Haven’t you been told from the beginning? Don’tyou understand the foundations of the earth? God is enthroned above the earth, & thosewho live on it are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the sky like a canopy & spreads itout like a tent to live in. He makes rulers unimportant & makes earthly judges worthnothing. They have hardly been planted. They have hardly been sown. They have hardlytaken root in the ground. Then he blows on them & they wither, & a windstorm sweepsthem away like straw. “To whom, then, can you compare me? Who is my equal?” asksthe Holy One. Look at the sky & see. Who created these things? Who brings out the starsone by one? He calls them all by name.

Israel,why do you say, “My way is hidden from the LORD, & my rights are ignored by myGod”? Don’t you know? Haven’t you heard? The eternal God, the LORD, the Creator ofthe ends of the earth, doesn’t grow tired or become weary. His understanding is beyondreach. He gives strength to those who grow tired & increases the strength of those whoare weak. Even young people grow tired & become weary, & young men will stumble &fall. Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the LORD will be renewed. Theywill soar on wings like eagles. They will run & won’t become weary. They will walk &won’t grow tired. • Re 11:15 – When the seventh angel blew his trumpet, there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord & of his Messiah, & he will rule as king forever & ever.” • Ps 22:27-28 – All the ends of the earth will remember & return to the LORD.
