Everlasting Dominion

I occasionally do these “where is it found in the Bible” type posts as a kind of poking fun at the “who said that” type things that other people do.  It seems that our culture is fixated on knowing what famous people said what and in what context.  Historians are doing it with the founding fathers of our nation, religious leaders are doing it with religious leaders of days gone by, and sports fans are doing it with famous athletes.  (Don’t even get me started on Hollywood gossip.)  I believe we should be more interested in what God has to say than any of those things I just named.  We should be so familiar with scripture that when a certain passage is quoted, we know where it is, or we at least have a general idea.

So here is the latest passage.  Can you find in the scriptures where these two passages are located?  They are in the same book, but separated by a couple of chapters.  No cheating by using search engines or concordances, just use your knowledge of the scriptures to find these two passages.  Here they are in the ESV:

for his dominion is an everlasting dominion

and his kingdom endures from generation to generation

all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing

and he does according to his will among the host of heaven

and among the inhabitants of the earth

and none can stay his hand

or say to him, “What have you done?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

for he is the living God

enduring forever

his kingdom shall never be destroyed

and his dominion shall be to the end

He delivers and rescues

he works signs and wonders

in heaven and on earth

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Leave your guesses in the comments below.  I’ll post the reference after a few days.

Have fun and stay busy – Luke 19:13

    You thought this would be the answer, didn’t you?
