Children-The seed of the righteous.
Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not with holden the request of his lips. Selah.
O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant,
and save the son of thine handmaid.
The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him,
and his righteousness unto children's children;
Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished:
but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground:
I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that
contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord;
and great shall be the peace of thy children.
As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee,
and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth,
nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed,
saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun
a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding,
and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
1 Peter 1:5
Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them
who shall be heirs of salvation?
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
1 Thes. 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:
for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ;
that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land,
the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people,
and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long:
and there shall be no might in thine hand.
Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shall not enjoy them;
for they shall go into captivity.
