death. PSALMS 68.20
My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my
portion forever. PSALMS 73.26

Hear, my son, your father’s instruction And do not forsake your mother’s
teaching; Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head And ornaments about
your neck. PROVERBS 1.8,9
“But he who listens to me shall live securely And will be at ease from the dread of
evil.” PROVERBS 1.33
My son, if you will receive my words And treasure my commandments within
you, PROVERBS 2.1
Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding;
For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding;
If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will discern the fear of the Lord And discover the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and
understanding. PROVERBS 2.6
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in
integrity, PROVERBS 2.7
Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good
course. PROVERBS 2.9
For wisdom will enter your heart And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
Discretion will guard you, Understanding will watch over you, PROVERBS 2.11
My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your right-lobe keep my
commandments; For length of days and years of life, plus prosperity they will add
to you. PROVERBS 3.1,2
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write
them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute In the
sight of God and man. PROVERBS 3.3,4
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And do not lean on your own
understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths
straight. PROVERBS 3.5,6
My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord Or loathe His reproof, For whom
the Lord loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he
delights. PROVERBS 3.11,12
Happiness to the man who finds wisdom and the man who gains understanding.
For its [doctrine’s] profit is better than the profit of silver, and its [doctrine’s]
gain greater than fine gold. She [doctrine] is more precious than jewels; and
nothing you desire compares with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left
hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are
prosperity. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all
who hold her fast. PROVERBS 3.14-18
By His knowledge the deeps were broken up And the skies drip with dew. My son,
let them not vanish from your sight; Keep sound wisdom and discretion, So they
will be life to your soul And adornment to your neck. Then you will walk in your
way securely And your foot will not stumble. PROVERBS 3.20-23
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be
sweet. PROVERBS 3.24
Do not be afraid of sudden fear Nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes;
For the Lord will be your confidence And will keep your foot from being caught.
PROVERBS 3.25,26
I have directed you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in upright paths. When
you walk, your steps will not be impeded; And if you run, you will not stumble.
Take hold of instruction; do not let go. Guard her, for she is your life.
PROVERBS 4.11-13
But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and
brighter until the full day. PROVERBS 4.18
My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let
them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are
life to those who find them And health to all their body. PROVERBS 4.20-22
Drink water from your own cistern And fresh water from your own well. Should
your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets? Let them be
yours alone And not for strangers with you. Let your fountain be blessed, And
rejoice in the wife of your youth. As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her
breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love. For why
should you, my son, be exhilarated with an adulteress And embrace the bosom of
a foreigner? For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord, And He
watches all his paths. His own iniquities will capture the wicked, And he will be
held with the cords of his sin. He will die for lack of instruction, And in the
greatness of his folly he will go astray. PROVERBS 5.15-23
For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching is light; And reproofs for
discipline are the way of life. PROVERBS 6.23
Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man
and he will increase his learning. Occupation with the Lord [Christ] is the
beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For
by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you.
The Lord will not allow the righteous to hunger . . . . PROVERBS 10.3a
He is on the path of life who heeds instruction, But he who ignores reproof goes
astray. PROVERBS 10.17
Occupation with the Lord [Christ] is a fountain of life, That one may avoid the
snares of death. PROVERBS 14.27
The wicked is thrust down by his wrongdoing, But the righteous has a refuge
when he dies. PROVERBS 14.32
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, But the slow to anger calms a dispute.
A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother.
The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who watches his way
preserves his life. PROVERBS 16.17
Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.
He who gives attention to the word will find good, And blessed is he who trusts in
the Lord. PROVERBS 16.20
He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them
alike are an abomination to the Lord. PROVERBS 17.15
A friend loves at all times . . . . PROVERBS 17.17a
A foolish son is a grief to his father And bitterness to her who bore him.
He who restrains his words has knowledge, And he who has a cool spirit is a man
of understanding. PROVERBS 17.27
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.
He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; He who keeps understanding will find
good. PROVERBS 19.8
Listen to counsel and accept discipline, That you may be wise the rest of your
days. PROVERBS 19.20
It is better to live in a desert land Than with a contentious and vexing woman.
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart
from it. PROVERBS 22.6
For as a person thinks within himself, so he is. PROVERBS 23.7a
Apply your heart to discipline and your ears to words of knowledge. Do not hold
back discipline from the child, although you strike him with the rod, he will not
die. PROVERBS 23.12,13
My son, if your heart is wise, My own heart also will be glad; And my inmost
being will rejoice when your lips speak what is right. PROVERBS 23.15,16
Do not let your right-lobe envy sinners, but live in occupation with the Lord all
day long. PROVERBS 23.17
Surely there is a future, And your hope will not be cut off. PROVERBS 23.18
Listen, my son, and be wise, And direct your heart in the way. PROVERBS 23.19
Listen to your father who begot you, And do not despise your mother when she is
old. PROVERBS 23.22
The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice, And he who sires a wise son will be
glad in him. PROVERBS 23.24
Let your father and your mother be glad, And let her rejoice who gave birth to
you. PROVERBS 23.25
Do not be envious of evil men, Nor desire to be with them; For their minds devise
violence, And their lips talk of trouble. PROVERBS 24.1,2
By wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established;
And by knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches.
A wise man is strong, And a man of knowledge increases power.
Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth.
He who turns away his ear from listening to the doctrine, Even his prayer is an
abomination. PROVERBS 28.9
The rod and reproof give wisdom, But a child who gets his own way brings shame
to his mother. PROVERBS 29.15
Correct your son, and he will give you comfort; He will also delight your soul.
I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it
and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear
Do not be eager in your heart to be angry, for anger resides in the bosom of fools.
Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who
never sins. ECCLESIASTES 7.20
. . . Because mankind is constantly walking toward his eternal home while
mourners go round and round without direction, remember Him [Jesus Christ]
before the silver thread is snapped or the golden bowl is broken or the clay jug is
smashed on the side of the well is shattered or the wheel on the well is broken.
. . . Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.
The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, because he trusts in You.
Trust in the Lord forever, For in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock.
ISAIAH 26.3,4
Lord, You will establish peace for us, Since You have also performed for us all our
works. ISAIAH 26.12
Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, furthermore He is on high to have
compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; how blessed are all those
who wait for Him [patience and dedication to the persistent intake of doctrine].
ISAIAH 30.18
And He will be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom and
knowledge; occupation with the Lord is his treasure. ISAIAH 33.6
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the
Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His
understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who
lacks might He increases power. ISAIAH 40.28,29
Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with
wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become
weary. ISAIAH 40.31
Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your
God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My
righteous right hand. ISAIAH 41.10
For I am the Lord your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, ‘Do
not fear, I will help you.’ ISAIAH 41.13
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers,
they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be
scorched, nor will the flame burn you. ISAIAH 43.2
“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen,
So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me
there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me. “I, even I, am the
Lord, And there is no savior besides Me. “It is I who have declared and saved and
proclaimed, And there was no strange god among you; So you are My witnesses,”
declares the Lord, “And I am God. “Even from eternity I am He, And there is
none who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it?”
ISAIAH 43.10-13
I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake; And I
will not remember your sins. ISAIAH 43.25
Even to your old age I will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear
you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you.
“Come near to Me, listen to this: From the first I have not spoken in secret, From
the time it took place, I was there. And now the Lord God has sent Me, and His
Spirit.” ISAIAH 48.16
Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; “I am the Lord your
God, who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go.”
ISAIAH 48.17
But you will not go out in haste, Nor will you go as fugitives; For the Lord will go
before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard. ISAIAH 52.12
All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But
the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. ISAIAH 53.6
“For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My
lovingkindness will not be removed from you, And My covenant of peace will not
be shaken,” Says the Lord who has compassion on you. ISAIAH 54.10
In righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you
will not fear; and from terror, for it will not come near you. ISAIAH 54.14
“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that
accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of
the Lord, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord. ISAIAH 54.17
Seek the Lord while He may be found [make Bible doctrine your first priority];
Call upon Him while He is near [if you are still alive, you have equal privilege and
equal opportunity]. ISAIAH 55.6
Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let
him return to the Lord, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon. ISAIAH 55.7
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares
the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher
than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.” ISAIAH 55.8,9
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there
without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to
the sower and bread to the eater; so will My word be which goes forth from My
mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and
without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. ISAIAH 55.10,11
You were tired out by the length of your road, yet you did not say, ‘It is hopeless.’
You found renewed strength, therefore you did not faint. ISAIAH 57.10
“There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.” ISAIAH 57.21
Then your light will break out like the dawn, And your recovery will speedily
spring forth; And your righteousness will go before you; The glory of the Lord will
be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; You will cry, and
He will say, ‘Here I am.’ ISAIAH 58.8, 9a
And the Lord will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched
places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. ISAIAH 58.11
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not so short That it cannot save; Neither is His ear so
dull That it cannot hear. ISAIAH 59.1
But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your
sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. ISAIAH 59.2
For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are
like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the
wind, take us away. ISAIAH 64.6
It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are
still speaking, I will respond. ISAIAH 65.24
“They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you to
deliver you,” declares the Lord. JEREMIAH 1.19
“Return, O faithless sons, I will heal your faithlessness.” “Behold, we come to
You; For You are the Lord our God. JEREMIAH 3.22
Your doctrines were found and I ate them, therefore your words became for me
happiness and the delight of my right-lobe; For I have been called by Your name,
O Lord, Lord of the armies. JEREMIAH 15.16
Thus says the Lord, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh
his strength, And whose heart turns away from the Lord.” JEREMIAH 17.5
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose trust is the Lord. For he will
be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not
fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious
in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit. JEREMIAH 17.7,8
The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can
understand it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each
man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.
JEREMIAH 17.9,10
‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare
and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. JEREMIAH 29.11
Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And
you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
JEREMIAH 29.12,13
. . . I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with
lovingkindness. JEREMIAH 31.3b
Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things,
which you do not know. JEREMIAH 33.3
This I recall to my mind [remembering what has been taught], therefore I have
hope. The Lord’s grace functions never cease [logistical grace], for His
compassions never fail [He forgives us every time we name our sins per 1 John
1.9]. They are new every morning [God gives us a day at a time to advance to
maturity]; great is your faithfulness [integrity]. “The Lord is my portion,” says my
soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.” The Lord is good to those who wait on
[trust in] Him, to the soul who seeks Him [perpetuated positive volition toward
doctrinal teaching]. LAMENTATIONS 3.21-25
Let us examine and probe our ways, And let us return to the Lord.
Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord God, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of
the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way [rejecting Christ] and
live [by means of faith alone in Christ alone].’ EZEKIEL 33.11
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of
blazing fire; and if He wants to, He will deliver us out of your hands, O king. But
even if He does not, be it known, O king, that we are not going to bow down and
worship your gods or the golden image that you have constructed.
DANIEL 3.17,18
“My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths and they have not harmed me,
inasmuch as I was found innocent before Him; and also toward you, O king, I
have committed no crime.” Then the king was very pleased and gave orders for
Daniel to be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den and
no injury whatever was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.
DANIEL 6.22,23
. . . He is the living God and enduring forever, And His kingdom is one which will
not be destroyed, And His dominion will be forever. He delivers and rescues and
performs signs and wonders In heaven and on earth . . . . DANIEL 6.26b, 27a
And those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse
of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever
and ever. DANIEL 12.3
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected
knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten
the doctrine of your God, I also will forget your children. HOSEA 4.6
For they sow the wind And they reap the whirlwind. The standing grain has no
heads; It yields no grain. Should it yield, strangers would swallow it up.
The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble, And He knows those who
take refuge in Him. NAHUM 1.7
. . . The righteous will live by faith. HABAKKUK 2.4b
The Lord God is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, And
makes me walk on my high places . . . . HABAKKUK 3.19a
‘For I,’ declares the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory
in her midst.'” ZECHARIAH 2.5
‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.
For I, the Lord, do not change. MALACHI 3.6
. . . Man shall not live on bread alone, but by every word [Bible doctrine] that
comes from the mouth of God. MATTHEW 4.4
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father who is in heaven. MATTHEW 5.16
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust
destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also. MATTHEW 6.20,21
Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be
opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to
him who knocks it shall be opened. MATTHEW 7.7,8
. . . Let it be done to you as you have believed. MATTHEW 8.13b
Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the
ground apart from your Father. “But the very hairs of your head are all
numbered. Therefore stop being afraid; you are of more value than many
sparrows. MATTHEW 10.29-31
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I [Christ Jesus]
am in their midst. MATTHEW 18.20
And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive. MATTHEW 21.22
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away.
“Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is
willing, but the flesh is weak.” MATTHEW 26.41
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
MARK 8.36
For nothing will be impossible with God. LUKE 1.37
For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ
the Lord. LUKE 2.11
. . . Happy are they that hear the word of God, and do it. LUKE 11.28b
But He said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.”
LUKE 18.27
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God. JOHN 1.1
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of
God, even to those who believe in His name. JOHN 1.12
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as
of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. JOHN 1.14
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is
spirit. JOHN 3.6
Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ JOHN 3.7
For God loved the world so much with the result that He gave His Son, the
uniquely born One, with the result that anyone who believes in Him will never
perish, but have eternal life. JOHN 3.16
He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged
already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
JOHN 3.18
He who believes in the Son [Jesus Christ] has eternal life; but he who does not
obey [the command to believe in] the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God
abides on him. JOHN 3.36
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in [the filling of the]
spirit and [biblical] truth. JOHN 4.24
Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me,
has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death
into life. JOHN 5.24
Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life. JOHN 6.47
. . . “If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall
know the doctrine, and the doctrine shall make you free.” JOHN 8.31b, 32
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the
slave of sin. JOHN 8.34
I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch
them out of My hand. JOHN 10.28
I and the Father are one. JOHN 10.30
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will
live even if he dies.” JOHN 11.25
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have
loved you, that you also love one another. JOHN 13.34
Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My
Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; I go to
prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. JOHN 14.1-3
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the
Father, except through Me.” JOHN 14.6
The Mentor, the Holy Spirit, . . . will teach you all things, and bring to your
remembrance all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it
be fearful. JOHN 14.26,27
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears
much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing. JOHN 15.5
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it
shall be done for you. JOHN 15.7
Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.
JOHN 15.9
These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy
may be made full. JOHN 15.11
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
JOHN 15.13
You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go
and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the
Father in My name, He may give to you. JOHN 15.16
But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for
He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak;
and He will disclose to you what is to come. JOHN 16.13
For the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed
that I came forth from the Father. JOHN 16.27
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world
you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. JOHN 16.33
But now I come to You [Christ prays to the Father]; and these things [Bible
doctrine] I speak in the world so that they [believers] may have My joy made full
in themselves JOHN 17.13
These have been communicated [written] that you might believe that Jesus is the
Christ [Messiah], the Son of God, and that believing you might have eternal life
through His name. JOHN 20.31
. . . you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you
shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even
to the remotest part of the earth. ACTS 1.8b
And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven
that has been given among men by which we must be saved. ACTS 4.12
. . . Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved . . . . ACTS 16.31b
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to
everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the
righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the
righteous man shall live by faith.” ROMANS 1.16,17
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that
which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to
them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal
power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what
has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God,
they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their
speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they
became fools. ROMANS 1.18-22
For there is no partiality with God. ROMANS 2.11
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. ROMANS 3.23
Being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ
Jesus. ROMANS 3.24
For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.
Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due.
But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly,
his faith is credited as righteousness, ROMANS 4.4,5
Blessed are those whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, and whose sins have
been covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will not take into account.
ROMANS 4.7,8
Yet, with respect to the promise of God, he [Abraham] did not waver in unbelief,
but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what
God had promised, He was able also to perform. ROMANS 4.20,21
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our
Lord Jesus Christ, ROMANS 5.1
And hope [absolute confidence] does not disappoint us, because the love for God
has been poured out in our hearts through the agency of the Holy Spirit who has
been given to us for our benefit. ROMANS 5.5
For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died as a substitute for
the ungodly. ROMANS 5.6
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died as a substitute for us. Much more then, having now been justified by
His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we
were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much
more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. ROMANS 5.8-10
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through
sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned. ROMANS 5.12
Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized [by the Holy Spirit at
the moment of salvation] into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?
Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as
Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might
walk in newness of life. ROMANS 6.3,4
For the wages of sin is [spiritual] death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in
Christ Jesus our Lord. ROMANS 6.23
For the married woman is bound by law to her husband while he is living; but if
her husband dies, she is released from the law concerning the husband.
There is no judgment, therefore, to those who are in Christ Jesus. ROMANS 8.1
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and
peace. ROMANS 8.6
The [Holy] Spirit Himself bears witness with our [human] spirit that we are
children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with
Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
ROMANS 8.16,17
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who
love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. ROMANS 8.28
. . . If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but
delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all
things? ROMANS 8.31b, 32
Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was
raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. ROMANS 8.34
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor
things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any
other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in
Christ Jesus our Lord. ROMANS 8.38,39
Stop being conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your
mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and
acceptable and perfect. For I say through the grace which has been given to me to
everyone who is among you, stop thinking of self in terms of arrogance, beyond
what you ought to think; but think in terms of sanity, as God has assigned to each
one of us a standard of thinking from doctrine. ROMANS 12.2,3
Now may the God of perseverance and encouragement give you the same
objective thinking with each other on the basis of the thinking of Christ Jesus;
that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God even the Father of
our Lord Jesus Christ. ROMANS 15.5,6
God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus
Christ our Lord. 1 CORINTHIANS 1.9
Your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered
the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man
which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God,
so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also
speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit,
combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 1 CORINTHIANS 2.12,13
But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are
foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually
appraised. 1 CORINTHIANS 2.14
For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct Him? But we
have the thinking of Christ. 1 CORINTHIANS 2.16
Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in
you? 1 CORINTHIANS 3.16
Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the
immoral man sins against his own body. 1 CORINTHIANS 6.18
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you,
whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 1 CORINTHIANS 6.19
The husband must fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her
husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband
does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body,
but the wife does. Stop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time, so
that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come together again so that Satan
will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 1 CORINTHIANS 7.3-5
But to the married I give instructions, not I, but the Lord, that the wife should not
leave her husband (but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be
reconciled to her husband), and that the husband should not divorce his wife.
But to the rest [mixed marriages (believer and unbeliever)] I say, not the Lord,
that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with
him, he must not divorce her. And a woman who has an unbelieving husband,
and he consents to live with her, she must not send her husband away. For the
unbelieving husband is sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is
sanctified through her believing husband; for otherwise your children are
unclean, but now they are holy. Yet if the unbelieving one leaves, let him leave;
the brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us
to peace. For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or
how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?
A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is
free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. 1 CORINTHIANS 7.39
And all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual
rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ. 1 CORINTHIANS 10.4
No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is
faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with
the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to
endure it. 1 CORINTHIANS 10.13
If we would judge ourselves [adjust to the justice of God, that is, acknowledge
that we have committed a sin which was judged at the cross], we should not be
judged [our divine discipline is cancelled]. 1 CORINTHIANS 11.31
[Virtue] Love is patient, [virtue] love is kind, and is not jealous; [virtue] love does
not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own,
is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in
unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things. 1 CORINTHIANS 13.4-7
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but
then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 1 CORINTHIANS 13.12
But now abide faith, hope [or confident expectation], [virtue] love, these three;
but the greatest of these is [virtue] love. 1 CORINTHIANS 13.13
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died
for our sins according to the Scriptures, 1 CORINTHIANS 15.3
For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
1 CORINTHIANS 15.21,22
Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a
moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will
sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
1 CORINTHIANS 15.51,52
But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will
have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “death is
swallowed up in victory.” 1 CORINTHIANS 15.54
O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?
Thanks be to God, who gives to us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone
in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of
Christ. 2 CORINTHIANS 4.6
Therefore we are not discouraged, for though our outer man is decaying, yet our
inner man is being renewed day by day. 2 CORINTHIANS 4.16
For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far
beyond all comparison, 2 CORINTHIANS 4.17
while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not
seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not
seen are eternal. 2 CORINTHIANS 4.18
For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a
building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 CORINTHIANS 5.7
. . . Absent from the body but face-to-face with the Lord. 2 CORINTHIANS 5.8b
For we must all appear before the judgment [evaluation] seat of Christ, that each
one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has
done, whether [divine] good or bad [human good]. 2 CORINTHIANS 5.10
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away;
behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled
us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal
through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
He [God] made Him [Christ] who knew no sin [impeccable spotless lamb] to be
sin on our behalf [as a substitute for us], that we might become the righteousness
of God in Him. 2 CORINTHIANS 5.21
For He says, “At the acceptable time I listened to you, and on the day of salvation
I helped you”; behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of
salvation.” 2 CORINTHIANS 6.2
But what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may cut off opportunity from
those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the matter about
which they are boasting. For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers,
disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises
himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also
disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to
their deeds. 2 CORINTHIANS 11.12-15
. . . My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. GALATIANS 3.26
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not
be subject again to a yoke of slavery. GALATIANS 5.1
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For
the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for
these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you
please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. GALATIANS 5.25
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also
reap. GALATIANS 6.7
He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according
to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He
freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. EPHESIANS 1.5,6
In Him [Christ] we have redemption [at salvation] through His blood
[substitutionary spiritual death on the cross], the forgiveness of our [presalvation]
trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished upon
us . . . . EPHESIANS 1.7, 8a
In Whom we have received a destiny, having been pre-designed according to a
predetermined plan from the One who works all things according to the decree
from His Will and purpose. EPHESIANS 1.11
In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your
salvation — having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of
promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the
redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked
according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the
air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with
Christ (by grace you have been saved), EPHESIANS 2.4,5
That in the ages to come [eternity] He [God] might demonstrate the surpassinggrace
riches in generosity toward us in Christ Jesus. EPHESIANS 2.7
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is
the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
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
That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened
with power through His Spirit in the inner man; so that Christ may dwell in your
hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be
able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height
and depth, and get to know the love of Christ which surpasses all academic
knowledge [and emotion], that you may be filled resulting in all the fullness of
blessing from the source of God. EPHESIANS 3.16-19
Now to Him [God the Father] who is able to do infinitely more than all that we
ask or think on the basis of the power that keeps on working in us . . . . To Him
the glory by means of the church by agency of Christ Jesus with reference to all
generations of this unique age of the ages. Amen. EPHESIANS 3.20a, 21
There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your
calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over
all and through all and in all. EPHESIANS 4.4-6
As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and
carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in
deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all
aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ. EPHESIANS 4.14,15
Therefore become refreshed [renewed (name known sins per 1 John 1.9),
reinvigorated (filled with the Holy Spirit), that is, resumption of your spiritual life
after failure] through the agency of the Holy Spirit by means of your [spiritual]
thinking. EPHESIANS 4.23
Stop grieving [failing to name known sins—per 1 John 1.9] the Holy Spirit of God,
by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. EPHESIANS 4.30
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from
you, along with all malice. EPHESIANS 4.31
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in
Christ also has forgiven you. EPHESIANS 4.32
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of
God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with
them; For you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as
children of light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and
righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
Therefore he communicates, “Wake up you sleeping one [ignorant of doctrine],
and get up from among the dead ones [walking dead—out of fellowship], and
Christ will shine on you.” Therefore beware how accurately you walk, not as
stupid ones, but as wise ones, constantly buying time, because the days are evil.
Because of this, stop being ignorant, but completely and thoroughly understand
the will [purpose, policy] of the Lord. And stop getting intoxicated with wine,
which is debauchery, but keep on being filled with the Spirit.
Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the
head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the
Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought
to be to their husbands in everything. EPHESIANS 5.22-24
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself
up for her, EPHESIANS 5.25
So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves
his own wife loves himself; EPHESIANS 5.28
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his
wife, and the two shall become one flesh. EPHESIANS 5.31
Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as
himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and
mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well
with you, and that you may live long on the earth. EPHESIANS 6.1-3
And, fathers [parents] do not provoke your children to anger; but bring them up
in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. EPHESIANS 6.4b
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full
armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the
devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual
forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of
God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything,
to stand firm. EPHESIANS 6.10-13
Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the
breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of
the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you
will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the
helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view,
be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.
Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ with incorruptible love.
On the basis of my confident expectation and hope, that I shall not be put to
shame in anything [that is, anything in life or in death], but with all boldness,
Christ shall even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life
[continual spiritual advance] or whether by death [dying grace]. For me, living is
Christ [occupation with Christ], and dying is profit. PHILIPPIANS 1.20,21
Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient
to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly
exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at
the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on
earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father. PHILIPPIANS 2.8-11
For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good
pleasure. PHILIPPIANS 2.13
. . . I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ
Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them
but excrement in order that I may gain Christ. PHILIPPIANS 3.8b
Not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is
through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of
faith. PHILIPPIANS 3.9
Brethren [members of the royal family of God], I evaluate myself to have not yet
attained [pleroma status (maximum glorification of God)]; but one thing on
which I concentrate: forgetting what lies behind [past failures in carnality or
reversionism] and pressing toward what lies ahead [pleroma status], I keep
advancing to the objective [dying grace] for the purpose of reward [escrow
blessings] belonging to the upward station [eternity] from God in Christ Jesus.
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the
Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into
conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has
even to subject all things to Himself. PHILIPPIANS 3.20,21
Stop worrying about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God,
which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in
Christ Jesus. PHILIPPIANS 4.6,7
. . . I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to
get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any
and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry,
both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him
who strengthens me. PHILIPPIANS 4.11b-13
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ
For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the
kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of
sins. COLOSSIANS 1.13,14
And He [Chirst] is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and
invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have
been created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things
hold together. COLOSSIANS 1.16,17
. . . He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through [spiritual] death, in
order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach.
To whom God decreed to make known what are the riches of His glory of this
mystery [God’s glory as manifested in the royal family, not revealed until the
Church Age] in the Gentiles [gentile believers — the Church Age has interrupted
the Jewish Age], which is, Christ in you, the hope [confident anticipation] of
glory. COLOSSIANS 1.27
And when you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your
flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our
transgressions. Having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees
against us and which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having
nailed it to the cross. COLOSSIANS 2.13,14
Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. COLOSSIANS 3.18
Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.
Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the
Fathers [parents], do not exasperate your children, that they may not lose heart.
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men,
knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is
the Lord Christ whom you serve. COLOSSIANS 3.23,24
Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;
But we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, about those who are asleep [an
analogy to Christian death with emphasis on waking up in a resurrection body],
that you may not grieve, as do the rest who have no hope.
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the
archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then
we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to
meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore
comfort one another with these words. 1 THESSALONIANS 4.16-18
But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a
thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of
darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.
See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which
is good for one another and for all people. 1 THESSALONIANS 5.15
Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in
Christ Jesus. 1 THESSALONIANS 5.17,18
Stop squelching [prolonged carnality] the [Holy] Spirit. 1 THESSALONIANS 5.19
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and
soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord
Jesus Christ. 1 THESSALONIANS 5.23
Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
Now may the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God the Father, who loved us
[Divine initiative of grace] and has given to us eternal comfort and good hope
[confidence] in the sphere of grace, comfort your hearts and strengthen you in all
[intrinsic good] production and good doctrine. 2 THESSALONIANS 2.16,17
But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory
forever and ever. Amen. 1 TIMOTHY 1.17
. . . I [Paul] urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be
made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may
lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and
acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to
come to the knowledge of the truth. 1 TIMOTHY 2.1b-4
Now she who is a widow indeed and who has been left alone, has fixed her hope
on God and continues in entreaties and prayers night and day. 1 TIMOTHY 5.5
Fight the good fight of faith; take an interest in eternal life to which you were
called, and you made a good witness in the presence of many witnesses.
1 TIMOTHY 6.12
. . . He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of
Lords; who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light,
whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion!
Amen. 1 TIMOTHY 6.15,16
Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their
hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all
things to enjoy. 1 TIMOTHY 6.17
Storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that
they may take hold of that which is life indeed. 1 TIMOTHY 6.19
For the God has not given us a state of mind of cowardess, but of power and love
and of self-discipline. 2 TIMOTHY 1.7
Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works,
but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus
from all eternity, 2 TIMOTHY 1.9
Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith
and love which are in Christ Jesus. Guard the noble deposit [doctrine in the
stream of consciousness] through the agency of the Holy Spirit who keeps on
dwelling in us. 2 TIMOTHY 1.13,14
If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.
2 TIMOTHY 2.13
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that does not need to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 TIMOTHY 2.15
Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace,
with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 2 TIMOTHY 2.22
But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels.
2 TIMOTHY 2.23
Always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be mature,
thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 TIMOTHY 3.16,17
I have fought that honorable fight [advancing to and maintaining maturity until
death], I have finished the course, I have guarded the doctrine [resident in my
soul]. In the future [eternity], a wreath of that righteousness [that is, of total
fulfillment of spiritual objectives] is reserved for me, which wreath the Lord, the
righteous Evaluator, will award me on that day [at the Evaluation Seat of Christ];
and not only to me, but to all those who love His appearing [mature believers
who, from the detailed system of doctrine in their souls, eagerly anticipate the
out-resurrection (Rapture), which will precede the Evaluation Seat of Christ].
2 TIMOTHY 4.7,8
In the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before times
eternal. TITUS 1.2
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all mankind. TITUS 2.11
For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to
various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating
one another. TITUS 3.3
He saved us, not from the source of works by means of righteousness which we
have done, but on the basis of His mercy, through cleansing that brings about
regeneration, even the renewal through the agency of the Holy Spirit. TITUS 3.5
For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to
come to the aid of those who are tempted. HEBREWS 2.18
The word of God is alive and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, and of the joints
and the marrow, and is a critic of thoughts and intents of the heart.
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses,
but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may
receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. HEBREWS 4.16
For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have
shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the
saints. HEBREWS 6.10
Hence, also, He [Christ] is able to save forever those who draw near to God
through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
It is destined for mankind to die once [physically] and after this [for those who
reject Christ as Savior] the act of judgment. HEBREWS 9.27
Stop neglecting the assembling of yourselves together [learning doctrine under
enforced humility], as is the habit of certain ones, but for the purpose of
encouragement [from the doctrine learned]; even so much the more, as you see
the day drawing near. HEBREWS 10.25
It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God. HEBREWS 10.31
In fact, doctrine is the reality from which we keep receiving the hope, the proof of
matters not being seen. HEBREWS 11.1
And without doctrine resident in the soul it is impossible to please God, for when
one is occupied with God, he must be convinced [by resident doctrine] that He is
[the Source of blessing], and that He becomes a Rewarder of them who diligently
seek Him [through daily inculcation of doctrine]. HEBREWS 11.6
According to doctrine resident in the soul, all these died [Abraham and the other
believer’s in context who transferred under the principle of dying grace], not
having received the promises [surpassing-grace blessings of eternity], but having
seen them from a distance [from the high ground of spiritual maturity in time]
and having saluted and embraced them [the entirety of dying grace] and having
acknowledged that they were strangers [those who thought differently, i.e., divine
viewpoint] and transients on the earth [“passing-through types” from grace to
grace and glory to glory]. HEBREWS 11.13
Therefore, since we also have such a great battalion of witnesses [Old Testament
Jeshurun-class believers in Christ (Adonai)] supporting us, having laid aside
every impediment [distraction to concentration], and the easily ensnaring sin
[your current area of weakness, handled by the continual function of naming your
sins per 1 John 1.9], let us advance on the run with endurance [opposite of
distraction] in the conflict to the present objective [pleroma = maximum
glorification of God]. Concentrating on Jesus, the prince and perfecter of doctrine
Who because of His exhibited joy [absolute happiness], He endured the cross
having disregarded the shame and He sat down on the right hand of the Father.
HEBREWS 12.1,2
For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so
that you will not grow weary and lose heart. You have not yet resisted to the point
of shedding blood in your striving against sin; and you have forgotten the
exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, “My son, do not regard lightly the
discipline of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by Him; for whom the
Lord loves he disciplines, and he skins alive with a whip every son whom He
receives.” HEBREWS 12.3-6
See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness
springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled. HEBREWS 12.15
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled;
for fornicators and adulterers [all sex outside of marriage] God will judge.
Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with
what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever
forsake you.” HEBREWS 13.5
. . . The Lord is my Helper, I will not be afraid. What shall man do to me?
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever. HEBREWS 13.8
Obey your [spiritual] leaders [pastors], and submit to them; for they keep watch
over your souls, as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and
not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you. HEBREWS 13.17
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that
the testing of your faith produces endurance. JAMES 1.2,3
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously
and without reproach, and it will be given to him. JAMES 1.5
Happy the individual believer who perseveres under testing; for having been
approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those
who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”;
for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But
each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.
JAMES 1.12-14
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from
the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
JAMES 1.17
. . . But let everyone be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. The anger
of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. . . . In humility receive the
word implanted, which is able to save your souls. JAMES 1.19b-21b
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude
themselves. JAMES 1.22
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at
his natural face in a mirror; JAMES 1.23
for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten
what kind of person he was. JAMES 1.24
But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it,
not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be
blessed in what he does. JAMES 1.25
If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law, according to the Scripture, “You shall
love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. JAMES 2.8
And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And Abraham believed God, and it
was reckoned to him as righteousness,” and he was called the friend of God.
JAMES 2.23
. . . You do not have because you do not ask [Christian degeneracy (apostasy)
neglects effective prayer]. You ask and do not receive [degeneracy results in
malfunction of prayer], because you ask for yourselves with wrong motives, so
that you may squander it on your lust pattern. JAMES 4.2b, 3
Or do you presume that the Scripture speaks in vain against jealously? The Spirit
who dwells in us pursues us with love, and He gives us greater grace. Therefore it
says, “God makes war against the arrogant, but He gives grace to the humble.”
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. JAMES 4.5-7
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands [name your
sins to God the Father], you sinners; and purify your right-lobes, you doubleminded.
Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will promote you.
JAMES 4.10
Come now, you who think, “Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a
city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” You who
do not know the things of tomorrow, what is your life [quality, purpose, meaning,
goals]? You are just a vapor trail that appears for a little while [from the moment
of salvation] and then vanishes away [physical death]. Instead, you ought to
think, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and also do this [doctrine] or that [divine
good].” JAMES 4.13-15
We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job
[hero of the Old Testament book of Job] and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s
dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. JAMES 5.11
. . . The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. JAMES 5.16b
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His
great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the
resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is
imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be
revealed in the last time. 1 PETER 1.3-5
In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you
have been distressed by various trials, that the proof of your faith, being more
precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found
to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1 PETER 1.6,7
Knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold
from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious
blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
1 PETER 1.18,19
For, “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass
withers, and the flower falls off, but the word of the Lord abides forever . . . .”
1 PETER 1.24, 25a
Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all
slander, like newborn babies, desire the unadulterated milk of the Word, so that
by it you may grow up as a result of your salvation, if you have tasted the
kindness of the Lord. 1 PETER 2.1-3
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s
own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called
you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 PETER 2.9
Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a
king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of
evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 1 PETER 2.13,14
For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of
foolish men. 1 PETER 2.15
. . . But if when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this
finds favor with God. For this purpose you have been called, because Christ also
suffered as a substitute for you, leaving you a copybook that you may follow in
His steps. 1 PETER 2.20b, 21
And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to
sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were bound together.
1 PETER 2.24
In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if
any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the
behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.
1 PETER 3.1,2
For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears attend to their
prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. 1 PETER 3.12
But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And
do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord
in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to
give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.
1 PETER 3.14,15
For Christ also died for sins once for all, the righteous One as a substitute for the
unrighteous ones, in order that He might bring us to God, having been put to
death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit. 1 PETER 3.18
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt
you at the proper time. 1 PETER 5.6
Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 1 PETER 5.7
After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to
His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish
you. 1 PETER 5.10
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our
Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life
and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory
and excellence. He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in
order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature . . . .
2 PETER 1.2-4a
For no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the
Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2 PETER 1.21
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient
toward you, not willing that any perish but that all come to a change of mental
attitude [toward Christ]. 2 PETER 3.9
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ . . . .
2 PETER 3.18a
What we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, that you also may have
fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His
Son Jesus Christ. 1 JOHN 1.3
This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is
Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 1 JOHN 1.5
If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie
and do not practice the truth. 1 JOHN 1.6
But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with
one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 JOHN 1.7
If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in
us. 1 JOHN 1.8
If we name our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our [named] sins
and purify us from all wrong doing [forgotten sins and anything that is not a right
thing done in a right way]. 1 JOHN 1.9
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
1 JOHN 1.10
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if
anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for
those of the whole world. 1 JOHN 2.1,2
Whoever keeps His word, truly in him the love for God has been completed. By
this we know that we are in Him. 1 JOHN 2.5
This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life. 1 JOHN 2.25
See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called
children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us,
because it did not know Him. 1 JOHN 3.1
Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will
be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him
just as He is. 1 JOHN 3.2
You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He
who is in you than he who is in the world. 1 JOHN 4.4
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 JOHN 4.8
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be
the propitiation for our sins. 1 JOHN 4.10
We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is
love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
Because of this, virtue love has been brought to completion with us, that we may
have confidence in the day of evaluation; because just as He is, so also are we in
this world. There is no fear in virtue love; but perfect love casts out fear, because
fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love,
because He first loved us. 1 JOHN 4.16-19
Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the
Father loves the child born of Him. 1 JOHN 5.1
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has
overcome the world — our faith. 1 JOHN 5.4
It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 1 JOHN 5.6b
And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His
Son. He who has the Son [Jesus Christ] has the life; he who does not have the Son
of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in
the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
1 JOHN 5.11-13
This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything
according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever
we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
1 JOHN 5.14,15
And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so
that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son
Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 1 JOHN 5.20
I was very glad to find some of your children walking in truth, just as we have
received commandment to do from the Father. 2 JOHN 4
Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you
may receive a full reward. 2 JOHN 8
Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as
your soul prospers. 3 JOHN 2
Guard yourselves by means of love for God, as you wait with anticipation for the
mercy (and loving kindness) of the Lord Jesus Christ with reference to eternal
life. JUDE 21
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in
the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior,
through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before
all time and now and forever. Amen. JUDE 24, 25
And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the
ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us, and released us from our
sins by His blood [substitutionary spiritual death on the cross], and He has made
us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the
dominion forever and ever. Amen. REVELATION 1.5,6
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and
who is to come, the Almighty.” REVELATION 1.8
Those whom I love, I reprimand [warning discipline] and punish [intensive
discipline]; therefore, keep on being motivated [by the love of God and love for
God] and change your mind [about sin; i.e., rebound—1 John 1.9].
Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone [any believer out of fellowship]
hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him,
and he with Me. REVELATION 3.20
And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be
any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first
things have passed away. REVELATION 21.4
