The whole family in heaven and earth.
You Lord, are the one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all. I am Your son through faith in Christ Jesus. In the fullness of the times You might gather in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and on earth—in Him.
Jesus is not ashamed to call us brethren. He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” He said, “Go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father.’ ”
Your revelation reveals that under the altar are the souls of those who had been slain for Your word and for the testimony which they held. A white robe was given to each and it was said that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. Oh, Lord, may they not be made perfect apart from us.
Ascended Lord, give me grace to live according to Your Word and courage to endure to the end.
