You will recognize them by their fruit. — Matt 7:20 NET
Little children, let no one deceive you: The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as Jesus is righteous.—A spring does not pour out fresh water and bitter water from the same opening, does it? Can a fig tree produce olives, my brothers and sisters, or a vine produce figs? Neither can a salt water spring produce fresh water. Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct he should show his works done in the gentleness that wisdom brings.—Maintain good conduct among the non-Christians, so that though they now malign you as wrongdoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God when he appears.
“Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is known by its fruit.”—“The good person brings good things out of his good treasury, and the evil person brings evil things out of his evil treasury.”—What more can I do for my vineyard beyond what I have already done?

I will bestow honor on my throne room. — Isa 60:13 NET
This is what the Lord says: “The heavens are my throne and the earth is my footstool.”—“God does not really live with humankind on the earth! Look, if the sky and the highest heaven cannot contain you, how much less this temple I have built!”
“The Lord who rules over all says: ’In just a little while I will once again shake the sky and the earth, the sea and the dry ground. I will also shake up all the nations, and they will offer their treasures; then I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord who rules over all…. ’The future splendor of this temple will be greater than that of former times.’”
I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and earth had ceased to exist, and the sea existed no more…. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying: “Look! The residence of God is among human beings. He will live among them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them.”
Isa 66:1, 2 Chr 6:18, Hag 2:6-7, Hag 2:9, Rev 21:1, Rev 21:3
