Blue Ridge Mountains - “A Voice Calling in the Wilderness”

 

In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near."  This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah:

"A voice of one calling in the wilderness,
'Prepare the way for the Lord,
Make straight paths for him.'"

John's clothes were made of camel's hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist.  His food was locusts an wild honey.

Matthew 3:1-4

A voice of one calling:
"In the wilderness prepare
the way for the Lord;
make straight in the desert
a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be raised up,
every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become level,
the rugged places a plain,
And the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
and all people will see it together.
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken."

Isaiah 40:3-5

Blue Ridge Mountains - He will wipe every tear from their eyes...




He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mournings or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

Book of Jeremiah - Crumbling Empires






The LORD proclaims:  Cursed are those who trust in mere humans, who depend on human strength and turn their hearts from the LORD...Happy are those who trust in the LORD, who rely on the LORD.

"Behold, I am coming soon!"





 "Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.  Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.  I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."

The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!"  And let him who hears say, "Come!"  Whoever is thirsty, let him come, and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.

Revelations 22:12-17 NIV

Moving Mountains

 



Truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Matthew 17:20 NRSV

Unfailing Love


"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,"  says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

Isaiah 54:10

Table Rock Mountain




 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:2

Chestoa View Trail





 The path of the righteous is like the morning sun,
shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know hat makes them stumble.

Proverbs 4:18-19

Because He Lives All Fear is Gone

 


God sent His son, they call Him Jesus
He came to Love, heal and forgive
He Lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And Life is worth the living, just because he lives...

Blue Ridge Mountains - "He founded the Earth"

 


The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
by understanding He established the heavens;
By His knowledge the depths were broken up;
And clouds drop down the dew.

Proverbs 3:19
