FOUNDATION (1 Peter 1)

Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. . . indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

PAUL’S TESTIMONY: 1 Corinthians 15

. . . I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. . . last of all He was seen by me also . . .

FOUNDATION (Job 5)

But as for me, I would seek God, and to God I would commit my cause—who does great things, and unsearchable,
marvelous things without number. He gives rain on the earth, and sends waters on the fields.

FOUNDATION (Jeremiah 30)

Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind; it will fall violently on the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the Lord will not return until He has done it, and until He has performed the intents of His heart.

WAITING ON THE LORD

The word “wait” is the exact opposite of frantically trying to make something happen before its time on a self-determined timetable. Wait conveys persistent expectancy—waiting on God to accomplish His purpose at His appointed time.
