Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,
let the nations tremble;
He sits enthroned between the cherubim,
let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord in Zion;
He is exalted over all the nations.
Let them praise Your great and awesome name —
He alone is Holy.
Exalt the Lord our God
[Humble yourself]
and worship at His footstool;
He alone is Holy.
Exalt the Lord our God
and worship at His holy mountain,
for the Lord our God is Holy

Puisque l'Esprit nous fait vivre, laissons-nous conduire par l'Esprit

"I tell you all this while I still remains with you;
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit
whom the Father will send in My name,
He shall teach you all things
and will remind you of all which I have told you."
« Je vous dis tout cela pendant que Je demeure encore avec vous ;
mais le Défenseur, l'Esprit Saint
que le Père enverra en Mon nom, Lui,
vous enseignera tout,
et Il vous fera souvenir de tout ce que Je vous ai dit »
Suite du saint Évangile de notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ
selon Saint Jean (XIV 25-26).

A total solar eclipse will occur on August 2, 2027. The path of the eclipse will pass over all the countries of north Africa and the middle east. It will not be seen as a full eclipse in the Holy Land, but will be viewable in Mecca. Some have seen this day as the day of the Great Earthquake that splits the Mount of Olives.

... the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains;
it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it ....

... {but} for now you must leave the city to camp in the open field.
You will go to Babylon;
{but} there you will be rescued.
There the Lord will redeem you out of the hand of your enemies ....

see Micah 4:1-5:1

Micah also rebuked his government, because of its dishonesty in the marketplace and corruption in its officials. While he prophesied destruction, Micah also told them what the LORD required of them:

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good;
and what doth the LORD require of thee,
but to do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with thy God? — Micah 6:8

Micah'is prophetic service began around the year 778 B.C. and continued for almost 50 years under the kings of Judah: Jotham, Ahaz, and Righteous Hezekiah (721-691 B.C. - August 28th). He is commemorated with the other minor prophets in the Calendar of Saints (Armenian Apostolic Church) on July 31st. In the Eastern Orthodox Church he is commemorated twice in the year. The first feast day is January 5 (for those churches which follow the traditional Julian Calendar, January 5th currently falls on January 18th of the modern Gregorian Calendar). Because January 5th is also the Eve of the Epiphany, his major celebration is on August 14th (which is also the forefeast of the Dormition (the death of Mary-her falling asleep in the Lord).

Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts:
the whole earth is full of His glory.
(Isaiah 6:3 KJV (

Joshua gathered together all the tribes of Israel ... summoning their elders, their leaders, their judges, and their officers. When they stood in ranks before God, Joshua addressed all the people ... “If it does not please you to serve the LORD, decide today whom you will serve, the gods your fathers served beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites in whose country you are now dwelling. As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”

But the people answered, “Far be it from us to forsake the LORD for the service of other gods. For it was the LORD, our God, who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, out of a state of slavery. He performed those great miracles before our very eyes and protected us along our entire journey and among the peoples through whom we passed. Therefore we also will serve the LORD, for He is our God.”

from: (Joshua Chapter 24)

John 6:66:
As a result of this, many [of] his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him.
67 Jesus then said to the Twelve, “Do you also want to leave?”
68 Simon Peter answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.
69 We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.”

The Holy One of God -- In Mark 1:24, a demon tells Jesus "I know who you are—the Holy One of God!" The use of this title is somewhat surprising, because the title "the Son of God" is used to introduce Jesus in Mark 1:1. Obviously, the title denotes Jesus' holiness here, but would it have had additional connotations? Is it a kingly title? Priestly title? Divine title? In the New Testament it's used in the parallel passage in Luke 4:34, but also in John 6:69 in a passage reminiscent of Peter's confession in Mark 8 of Jesus as the Son of God; however, I could no find other usages of the title in a wider search. Was this a known title at the time? If so, what are its roots?

Preachers sometimes refer to Shekinah Glory. Neither the word nor the phrase is scriptual. Shekinah is from the Hebrew word shekinot -- It is this second word that appears in the Bible, to describe how God is said to “settle in” or “dwell with” his people. This word means where God is dwelling, settling or the place His Divine Presence inhabits.

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus
Dominus Deus Sabaoth.
Pleni sunt Cæli {or Cœli} et terra gloria tua.
Hosanna in excelsis.
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
Hosanna in excelsis.

Holy, Holy, Holy,
Lord God of hosts {of Heaven}.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest. (The full Mass in F minor can be found on YouTube - The reverse side of the original album cover has the Latin words as chanted throughout the Mass)

August 25, 325: The first Council of Nicæa ended with adoption of the Nicene Creed. It may be assumed that the synod, having been convoked for May 20th, in the absence of the Emperor held meetings of a less solemn character until June 14th, when the Council was opened by Constantine the Great in more solemn form. The Council was opened by Constantine the Great in solemn form. After the Emperor's arrival, the sessions, properly so called, began. The Council formulated the symbol on the 19th of June, after which various matters - such as the paschal controversy (date to celebrate) - were dealt with. The sessions came to an end on 25 August.

The Nicene Creed (Greek: Σύμβολον τῆς Νικαίας or τῆς πίστεως, Latin: Symbolum Nicaenum) -- The belief of the Western Church finds succinct expression in this profession of Faith or Credo called the Nicene Creed:

I BELIEVE in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible:

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God; Begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of very God; Begotten, not made; Being of one substance with the Father; By whom all things were made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man: And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried: And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures: And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father: And he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord, and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spake by the Prophets: And I believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church: I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins: And I look for the Resurrection of the dead: And the Life of the world to come. Amen. see

Bithynia, Nicaea in Bitthynia ARICTWN MEG in two lines within city walls of Nicaea, NIKAIE/WN in ex-gate clearly visible CREDO in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem cæli et terrae, visibilium omnium, et invisibilium.

Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum. Et ex Patre natum ante omnia sæcula. Deum de Deo, Lumen de lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Genitum, non factum, consubstantialem Patri: per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram salutem descendit de cælis. Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine: Et homo factus est. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis: sub Pontio Pilato passus, et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas. Et ascendit in cælum: sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est cum gloria, judicare vivos et mortuos: cuius regni non erit finis.

Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum, et vivificantem: qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur, et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per Prophetas. Et unam sanctam catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum. Et vitam venturi sæculi futuri. Amen.

In the Roman Rite (Mass), the Latin text of the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed, with Deum de Deo (God from God) and Filioque (and from the Son), phrases absent in the original text, was previously the only form used for the "profession of faith". The Roman Missal now refers to it jointly with the Apostles' Creed as "the Symbol or Profession of Faith or Creed", describing the second as the baptismal Symbol of the Roman Church, known as the Apostles' Creed. The liturgies of the ancient Churches of Eastern Christianity (Eastern Orthodox Church, Oriental Orthodoxy, Assyrian Church of the East and the Eastern Catholic Churches), use the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed, never the Western Apostles' Creed.

While in certain places where the Byzantine Rite is used, the choir or congregation sings the Creed at the Divine Liturgy, in many places the Creed is typically recited by the cantor, who in this capacity represents the whole congregation although many, and sometimes all, members of the congregation may join in rhythmic recitation. Where the latter is the practice, it is customary to invite, as a token of honor, any prominent lay member of the congregation who happens to be present, e.g., royalty, a visiting dignitary, the Mayor, etc., to recite the Creed in lieu of the cantor. This practice stems from the tradition that the prerogative to recite the Creed belonged to the Emperor, speaking for his populace. Some evangelical and other Christians consider the Nicene Creed helpful and to a certain extent authoritative, but not infallibly so in view of their belief that only Scripture is truly authoritative. Other groups, such as the Church of the New Jerusalem, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the Jehovah's Witnesses explicitly reject some of the statements in the Creed.
