    "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them." Ephesians 2:10, NASB

    "'In that day I will raise up the fallen booth of David, and wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins And rebuild it as in the days of old; That they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations who are called by My name,' declares the LORD who does this." Amos 9: 11–12, NASB
