Johnny Brazil


Scripture: The earth is the LORD’s and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that swell therein.  For he hath founded it upon the seas and established it upon the floods.  Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD?  Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.  He shall receive the blessing from LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.            Psalms 24:1-5
