PRAISE TO GOD FOR HIS SALVATION AND JUDGMENT (JUSTICE)
Psalm 149 New International Version (NIV), 1. Praise the Lord. Sing to the Lord a new song, His praise in the assembly of His faithful people. 2. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King. 3. Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with timbrel and harp. 4. For the Lord takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with victory. 5. Let His faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds. 6. May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands, 7. to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, 8. to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron, 9. to carry out the sentence written against them—this is the glory of all His faithful people.
JESUS CAME TO EARTH TO PREACH THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Mark 1:14-15 King James Version (KJV), 14. Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15. And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
Luke 4:17-19 King James Version (KJV), 17. And there was delivered unto Him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written, 18. The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And He closed the book, and He gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him.
OUR PURPOSE IS TO BRING HEAVEN ON EARTH; JUSTICE, WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD LEADING US
Isaiah 61:1-9 King James Version (KJV), 1. The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me; because the Lord hath anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3. appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified. 4. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. 5. And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. 6. But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. 7. For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. 8. For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. 9. And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.
Romans 8:14 King James Version (KJV), For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Hebrews 4:12-13 New King James Version (NKJV), 12. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
