Promised Holy Spirit
The earth (see above for its variety) is G*D's and all that is in it (even the female not mentioned above).
Lift up your heads, O David, John, Amos, Christ, Holy Spirit! and be lifted up.
Lift up your head (__your name here__)! and be lifted up.
Imagine even Uzzah, Amaziah and Herod able to lift their heads, for all are chosen in Christ. Imagine the hardest person you have to deal with. Their head, too, will be lifted. There is no stopping the results of steadfast love and faithfulness, righteousness and peace. They will not stop at such nothings as political promises and betrayal, falseness and war.
Lift up your heads, O Uzzah, Amaziah, Herod! and be lifted up.
