Psalm 24:1-6 "The earth belongs to God! Everything in all the world is His! He is the one who pushed the oceans back to let dry land appear. Who may climb the mountain of the Lord and enter where He lives? Who may stand before the Lord? Only those with pure hands and hearts, who do not practice dishonesty and lying. They will receive God's own goodness as their blessing from Him, planted in their lives by God Himself, their Savior. These are the ones who are allowed to stand before the Lord and worship the God of Jacob."

Alliance letter to KBC in 2012, said,
"The Family Farm Alliance has never made, and
does not intend to make, any statement
supporting or opposing the KBRA."
Our organization has never taken any position on
the KBRA, nor does it anticipate taking any such
position. The Family Farm Alliance
advocates for Western irrigated agriculture on
issues of general application, and does not
typically address local or regional issues such
as the KBRA."

John 15:5-8 I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

Matthew 28:1-8 "Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men. But the angel said, 'Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.' So they went quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word." Sent by Frank Tallerico 4/4/15
