To the law and to the testimony; if they speak not according to this word it is because there is no light in them [Isa. 8: 20].
Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth [2 Tim. 2: 15].
Knowing this first that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation [2 Peter 1: 20].
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God [Matt. 4: 4].
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path [Psa. 119: 105]. The path of the just is as a shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day [Prov. 4: 18].
Let God be true, but every man a liar [Rom.3: 4].
To us there is but one God, the Father, of Whom are all things [1 Cor. 8: 6], The King of kings and Lord of lords, Who only hath immortality [1 Tim. 6: 16], and one Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom are all things [1 Cor. 8: 6], the beginning of the creation of God [Rev. 3: 14].
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; He judgeth among the gods [Psa. 82: 1]; for the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods [Psa. 95: 3].
In a beginning was the Word, and the Word was with THE God: and a god was the Word [John 1: 1 (Diaglott)], and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us [John 1: 14]. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him [John 1: 2, 3].
Jesus answered them. I and my Father are One [John 10: 25, 30].
Oh Father, keep through thine Own name those whom Thou hast given me that
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word ... THAT THEY MAY BE ONE EVEN AS WE ARE ONE [John 17: 6, 11, 20, 21, 22].
My Father is GREATER than I [John 14: 28]. I proceeded forth and came from God [John 8: 42]. I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father. I can of mine own self do nothing [John 5: 30].
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end [Rev. 21: 6]. The beginning of the creation of God [Rev. 3: 14], the first begotten of the dead [Rev. 1: 5], the first fruits of them that slept [l Cor. 15: 20] , the first born from the dead; that He might- in all things have the preeminence [Col. 1: 18].
God created the Heaven and the earth [Gen. 1: 1], by Jesus Christ [Eph. 3: 9] that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Jesus Christ [Eph. 2: 7].
And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle and over all the earth [Gen. 1: 26].
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and MAN became a living soul [Gen. 2: 7].
What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? ... for Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels [Psa. 8: 4].
And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also and the tree of knowledge of good and evil [Gen. 2: 9].
And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him an help meet for him [Gen. 2: 18]. And The Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam ... and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto man [Gen. 2: 21, 22].
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed [Gen. 2: 25].
And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day thou eatest of it thou shalt surely die [Gen. 2: 16, 17].
And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good [Gen. 1: 31].
and Satan [Rev. 12: 9]. He was a murderer from the beginning [John 8: 44].
Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made, and he saith unto the woman, yea, hath God said ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said ... of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it ... lest ye die [Gen. 3: 1, 3].
And the serpent said unto the woman,
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof and did eat and gave also unto her husband and he did eat [Gen. 3: 4-6].
Adam was not deceived [1 Tim. 2: 14]; wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin [Rom. 5: 12] for the wages of sin is death [Rom. 6: 23], so
Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one [Job 14: 4]. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit [Matt. 7: 18].
And the Lord God said unto the serpent ... I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed it shall bruise thy head [Gen. 3: 15].
And unto the woman He said ... in sorrow shalt thou bring forth children. And unto Adam he said; cursed is the ground for thy sake ... thorns and thistles shall it bring to thee; ... in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art and unto dust shalt thou return [Gen. 3: 14, 19].
And the Lord God said, ... and now lest he take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever ... therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, ... and He placed ... Cherubims and a flaming sword ... to keep the way of the tree of life [Gen. 3: 22-24].
And all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he DIED [Gen. 5: 5]. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years [2 Peter 3: 8].
know not anything ... for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge in the grave [Ecc. 9: 5, 11]. His breath goeth forth that very day his thoughts perish [Psa. 146: 4]. All are of the dust and all turn to dust again [Ecc 3: 20]. The dead praise not the Lord Psa [115: 17]. The wicked shall not be [Psa. 37 : 10]. The soul that sinneth it shall die [Ezek. 18: 4].
If a man die, shall he live again [Job 14: 14]?
are the habitation of thy throne [Psa 89: 14].
The law of the Lord is perfect [Psa. 19: 7] for I am the Lord I change not [Mal. 3: 6]. Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe [Ex. 21: 23, 25]. Life shall go for life [Deut. 19: 21].
Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins [Heb. 9: 22]. For the blood is the life [Deut. 12: 23].
It is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sin [Heb 10: 4].
The soul that sinneth it shall die [Ezek. 18: 4]. What shall a man give in exchange for his soul [Matt. 16: 26]? None can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him [Psa. 49: 7], for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God [Rom. 3: 23].
How, then, can man be justified with God? [Job 25: 4].
shall go before thy face [Psa. 89: 14].
The things which are impossible with men are possible with God [Luke 18 : 27], who will have all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth [1 Tim. 2: 4]. As I live, saith the Lord God I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked [Ezek. 33: 11]. Thy dead men shall live [Isa. 26: 19]; I will ransom them from the power of the grave, I will redeem them from death [Hos. 13: 14]. I have found a ransom [Job 33: 24].
Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people [Luke 2: 10, 11]. For the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice [Zeph. 1: 7], the man Christ Jesus ...Who gave Himself
to be testified in due time [1 Tim. 2: 3, 6]. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive [1 Cor. 15: 22].
When the fullness of time was come, God sent His Son into the world [Gal. 4: 4]; the Word was made flesh [John 1: 14], was made in the likeness of men [Phil. 2: 7] a little, lower than the angels [Heb. 2: 9], made of a woman [Gal. 4: 4], holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners [Heb. 7: 26].
Being found in fashion as a man, He became obedient unto death [Phil 2: 8].
For since by man came death, by man (the man Christ Jesus [1 Tim. 2: 5]) came also the resurrection from the dead [1 Cor. 15: 21]. The Son of man came to give his life a ransom [Mark 10: 45]. Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood [Heb 9: 12]. Ye were not redeemed with corruptible things ... but with the precious blood of Christ [1 Peter 1: 18].
The wages of sin is death [Rom. 6: 23]. Christ died for our sins [1 Cor. 15: 3].
The soul that sinneth it shall die [Ezek. 18: 4]. He poured out his soul unto death; His soul was made an offering for sin [Isa. 53: 12, 10]. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God [1 Peter 3: 18].
I came not to judge the world, but to save the world [John 12: 47]. For God hath appointed a day in the which He will judge the world in righteousness [Acts 17: 31].
The Son of man is come to save that which is lost [Matt. 18: 11]. The Lord God ... drove out the man, and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden, Cherubims ... to keep the way to the tree of life [Gen. 3: 23, 24].
As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive, [l Cor. 15: 21, 22], for the hour is coming in the which all that are in their graves shall hear His voice and shall come forth [John 5: 28, 29].
After this manner, therefore pray ye: Our Father which are in Heaven,
Thy will be done in earth as it is done in Heaven [Matt. 6: 9, 10].
The earth abideth forever [Ecc. 1: 4], for thus saith the Lord God Himself that formed the earth ... He created it not in vain. He formed it to be inhabited [Isa. 45: 18]. The Heaven even the Heavens, are the Lord's, but the earth hath He given to the children of men [Psa. 115:16].
The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and the chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again [Mark. 8: 31]. Whom the Heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began [Acts 3: 21].
Ye shall see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God [Luke 13: 28], whom thou shalt make princes in all the earth [Psa. 45: 16 (R. V.)] ... Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and the prophets ... [Heb. 11: 4, 5, 7, 8, 17, 20, 22, 23] these all having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us (Holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling [Heb. 3: 1]), that they, without, us, should not be made perfect [Heb. 11: 39-40]. For David is not ascended into the Heavens [Acts. 2: 54]. No man hath ascended up to Heaven, but He that came down from Heaven [John 5: 13].
And it was the third hour, and they crucified Him ... And with Him they crucify two thieves, the one on His right hand and the other on His left [Mark 15: 25, 27].
And one of the malefactors ... railed on Him, saying If thou be Christ, save Thyself and us. But the other rebuked him, saying, ... we receive the due reward of our deed, but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom.
And he said to him, Indeed I say to thee this day, thou shalt be with me in Paradise [Luke 23: 43 (Diaglott)].
And when they had fulfilled all that was written of Him they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a sepulchre [Acts. 13: 29]. For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth [Matt. 12: 40].
Him God raised up the third day and showed Him openly. Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with Him after He rose from the dead [Acts 10: 40], unto the apostles whom He had chosen ... being seen of them forty days [Acts. 1: 2,3].
This same Jesus which is taken up from you into Heaven shall so come in like manner (not to all the people [Acts 10: 40]) unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time [Heb. 9: 28] as ye have seen Him go into Heaven [Acts 1: 11].
Simon hath declared how God ... did visit the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name ... and to this agree the words of the prophets ... After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David which is fallen down ... that the residue of men might seek after the Lord [Acts 15: 14-17].
Many shall be purified and made white and tried [Dan. 12: 10] and this Gospel of the Kingdom (of Heaven [Matt. 4: 17]) shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come [Matt. 24: 14].
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled [Luke 21: 24]. In the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed [Dan. 2: 44]. At that time shall they call Jerusalem the Throne of the Lord, and all nations shall be gathered unto it [Jer. 3: 17].
The whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God [Rom. 8: 22,19].
We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, which none of the princes of this world knew ... but God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit.
The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned [1 Cor. 2: 7-14].
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh but they that are after the Spirit, the things of the Spirit [Rom. 8: 5].
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit if so be the spirit of God dwell in you [Rom. 8: 9].
which was kept secret since the world began [Rom. 16: 25]; which hath been hidden from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints, to whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery ... which is
the hope of glory [Col. 1: 26, 27]; that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together all thing in Christ both which are in Heaven and which are on earth [Eph. 1: 9-12].
To Abraham and his seed were the promises made [Gal. 3: 16].
In thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed [Gen. 22: 18]. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many, but as of One ... to thy Seed, which is Christ [Gal. 3: 16].
If ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed [Gal. 3: 29], for as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ [Gal. 5: 27]. For as the 'body is one, and hath many members ... so also is Christ [1 Cor. 12: 12].
The law and the prophets were until John ... since which time the Kingdom of God is preached [Luke 16: 16].
When Jesus heard that John was cast into prison He departed into Galilee. From that time Jesus began to preach
is at hand [Matt. 4: 17]. His fame went through all Syria ... and there followed him great multitudes of people [Matt. 4: 24, 25]. But without a parable spake He not unto them [Mark 4: 34] that seeing, they may see and not perceive; and hearing, they may hear and not understand [Mark 4: 11].
When they were alone, He expounded all things unto His disciples [Mark 4: 34].
Saith He unto His disciples [Matt. 9: 37], Think not that I am come to destroy the law and the prophets. I am not come to destroy but to fulfill ... one jot or one tittle shall in nowise pass from the law till all be fulfilled. Whoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven [Matt. 5: 17, 18].
Among them that are born of women there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptist. Notwithstanding, he that is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he [Matt. 11: 11].
For the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified [John 7: 39]. Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom. That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit [John 3: 3, 5, 6]. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom [1 Cor. 15: 50]. Ye must be born again [John 3: 7].
The way into the Holiest was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was yet standing, but Christ ... an High Priest of good things to come ... entered in once into the Holy Place [Heb. 9: 8, 11]; into Heaven itself [Heb. 9: 24].
That which is born of the flesh is flesh [John 3: 5]. The Word was made flesh [John 1: 14]; made a little lower than the angels [Heb. 2: 9]; made of a woman [Gal. 4: 4]; holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners [Heb. 7: 26]; the second Adam [1 Cor 15: 45, 47].
The man Christ Jesus gave Himself a Ransom for all [1 Tim. 2: 5, 6], being put to death in the flesh [1 Peter 3: 18]. Wherefore ... though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth, know we Him no more [2 Cor. 5: 15, 16].
Except a man be born again, not of flesh ... nor of the will of man, but of God [John 1: 13] he cannot see the Kingdom of God [John 3: 3]. Except a man be born ... of the Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom [John 3: 5].
Jesus said, ... I came ... not to do mine own will, but the will of Him, that sent me [John 6: 35, 38]. Jesus came from Nazareth ... and was baptized of John. Coming up out of the water. He saw the Heavens opened, and the Spirit ... descending upon Him [Mark 1: 9, 10].
Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered [Heb. 5: 8]. In the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan [Mark 1: 13]; despised and rejected of men; a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief [Isa. 53: 3]. He humbled Himself and became obedient ... even to the death of the cross [Phil . 2: 8].
Wherefore God hath highly exalted him [Phil 2: 9], according to the working of His mighty power which He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead (the first that should rise from the dead [Acts 26: 23], and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and dominion ... and gave Him to be Head ... over the Church, which is his body [Eph. 1: 19-23].
Put to death in the flesh, but quickened in the Spirit [1 Peter 3: 18 (R.V.)].
Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world [1 John 5: 4]. Jesus answered them ... Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world [John 16: 33].
Hereunto were ye called ... that He should follow His steps [1 Peter 2: 21]. No man taketh this honor unto himself, but he that is called of God [Heb. 5: 4]. Straight is the gate and
which leadeth unto life, and few there be who find it [Matt. 7: 14]. Many will seek to enter in and shall not be able [Luke 13: 24]. No man can come to me except the Father which hath sent me draw him [John 6: 44]; for by grace are ye saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God [Eph. 2: 8].
How shall we escape if we neglect
which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, [Heb. 2: 3] who brought life and immortality to light [2 Tim. 1: 10].
Which of you intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first and counteth the cost [Luke 14: 28]?
Whosoever doth not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple [Luke 14: 27]. Ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake. I came not to send peace but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother ... son or daughter, more than Me is not worthy of Me [Matt. 10: 22, 34-37]. Whosoever forsaketh not all that he hath, cannot be My disciple [Luke 14: 33].
Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? [Matt. 20: 22].
All that the Father giveth Me shall come to me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out [John 6: 37].
He that endureth unto the end shall be saved [Matt. 10: 22].
Many are called,
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places [Eph. 6: 12]. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh [2 Cor. 10: 3]. To him that overcometh I will grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne [Rev. 3: 21].
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He Might destroy the works of the devil [1 John 3: 8]. For even hereunto were ye called [1 Peter 2: 21] unto the fellowship of His Son [1 Cor 1: 9], to be joint heirs with Christ, if so be that we suffer with Him [Rom. 8: 17] to be saints [Rom. 1: 7].
Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world and angels? [1 Cor 6: 2,3]; the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation [Jude 6] which were disobedient ... in the days of Noah [1 Peter 3: 20].
Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you [John 15: 16]. If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free [John 8: 31, 32].
It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven ... Blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them [Matt. 13: 11, 16, 17].
Ye are a chosen generation, a Royal Priesthood [1 Peter 2: 9]. Elect according to the foreknowledge of God [1 Peter 1: 2]. Whom He did foreknow He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son [Rom. 8: 28, 30].
Not many wise after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called. But God hath chosen the foolish things of this world, and the weak things ... to confound the things which are mighty [1 Cor. 1: 26, 27].
He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But to as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become
even as many as the Lord your God shall call [Acts 2: 39]; who also hath sealed us [2 Cor. 1: 22]. And there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand [Rev. 7: 4].
Every man that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto Me [John 6: 45]. He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life [John 6: 47].
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus [Rom. 8: 1]; being justified, by faith, we have peace with God [Rom. 5: 1].
He that findeth his life shall lose it [Matt. 10: 39].
Present your bodies a living sacrifice [Rom. 12: 1].
Cursed be the deceiver who sacrifices unto the Lord a corrupt thing [Mal. 1: 4], for that is an abomination unto the Lord thy God [Deut. 17: 1].
Ye are clean, through the word which I have spoken unto you [John 15: 3]; and the blood of Jesus Christ ... cleanseth us from all sin [1 John 1: 7]; draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water [Heb. 10: 23]. Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service [Rom. 12: 1].
Behold, now is the day of salvation. We then, as workers together with Him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain [2 Cor. 6: 2,1]. When once the master of the house is risen up and hath shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door saying, Lord, open unto us; ... He shall answer and say unto you, I know you not, whence ye are [Luke 13: 25].
The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain King which made a marriage for His son [Matt. 22: 2]. I have espoused you to one Husband as a chaste virgin to Christ [2 Cor. 11: 2]. Hearken, 0 daughter, and consider ... forget thine own people and thy father's house [Psa. 45: 10-15].
At midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the Bridegroom [Matt. 25: 6]. The marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready [Rev. 19: 7-9]. Watch, therefore for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. They that were ready went in with him to the marriage; and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But He answered and said, ... I know you not [Matt. 25: 13, 10-12]. Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in Heaven [Matt. 10: 33].
we shall also live with Him [Rom. 6: 8]. If we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection [Rom. 6: 5].
In the days of Noah ... eight souls were saved by water the like figure ... baptism ... doth also now save us, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Not the putting away of filthiness of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God [1 Peter 3: 21].
Therefore we are buried, with Him, by baptism [Rom. 6: 44]. John baptized with the baptism of repentance [Acts 19: 4]. So many of us as were baptized unto Jesus Christ were baptized into His death [Rom. 6: 3]. John baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit [Acts 1: 5].
He that loseth his life for My sake shall find it [Matt. 10: 39].
If we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him [Rom. 6: 8]. Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead? If the dead rise not at all, why are they then baptized for ... the dead [1 Cor. 15: 29]?
But now is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept [1 Cor. 15: 20].
It doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when He doth appear we shall be like Him [1 John 3: 2] the image of the invisible God [Col. 1: 15]. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises, that by these ye might be
far above all principality and power and dominion [Eph. 1: 21]; joint heirs with Christ, if so be we suffer with Him [Rom. 8: 16, 17].
Ye must be born again [John 3: 7]. This mortal must put on immortality [1 Cor. 15: 53].
How can a man be born when he is old [John 3: 4]?
Not of blood, nor of the flesh, nor of the will of man but of God [John 1: 13]. Not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God [1 Peter 1: 23]. Of His own will begat He us with the Word of Truth [Jas. 1: 18].
It is the spirit that quickeneth ... the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life [John 6: 63].
My thoughts are not your thoughts, saith the Lord [Isa. 55: 8]. Be ye transformed by the rendering of your mind [Rom. 12: 2]. For
in his heart, so is he [Prov. 23: 1-7]. A good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, bringeth forth that which is good; an evil man, out of the evil treasure of his heart, bringeth forth that which is evil, for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh [Luke 6: 20,45]. Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man, but that which cometh out of the mouth [Matt. 15: 11].
Put off ... the old man ... and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness [Eph. 4: 22-24]. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus [Phil 2: 5]. To be spiritually minded is life and peace [Rom. 8: 6].
As new born babes desire the sincere milk of the Word, that ye may grow thereby [1 Peter 2: 2]. Study to show thyself approved unto God ... rightly dividing the Word of Truth [2 Tim. 2: 15] that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding [Col. 1: 9, 10]. For this is the will of God even your sanctification [1 Thess. 4: 3].
Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; and to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ [2 Peter 1: 5-8]. Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect [Matt. 5: 48].
He that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. There is no fear in love ... perfect love casteth out fear [1 John 4: 16, 18].
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven. For He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust [Matt. 5: 45].
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice [Eph. 4: 31].
Fret not thyself because of evil doers [Psa. 37: 1].
Speak evil of no man [Titus 3: 2]; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your hearts [Zech. 7: 10], for out of the heart proceed evil thoughts [Matt. 15: 19]. Michael, the archangel, when contending with the devils he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation [Jude 9].
Be ye angry and sin not? Let not the sun go down on your wrath. Neither give place to the devil. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth; but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers [Eph. 4: 26-29].
And be ye kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as God, for Christ's sake, has forgiven you [Eph. 4: 32].
Be not conformed to this world [Rom. 12: 2]. My Kingdom is not of this world [John 18: 36]. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth; do not your alms before men; swear not at all; agree with thine adversary quickly; resist not evil [Matt. 6: 19; 1: 5; 34: 25, 39].
Using this works as not abusing it [1 Cor. 7: 31]; not slothful in business; provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Be not wise in your own conceit [Rom. 12: 11, 17, 18, 16]. Prove all things, hold fast that which is good [1 Thes. 5: 21]. Do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith [Gal. 6: 10]. Lend hoping for nothing again ... and ye shall be the children of the Highest, for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil [Luke 6: 35].
Submit yourself to every ordinance of man, for the Lord's sake. Servants, be subject to your masters ... not only to the good and gentle, but also to the forward [1 Peter 2: 13, 15, 18].
Having food and raiment ... therewith be content, for we brought nothing into this world and it is certain we can carry nothing out [1 Tim. 6: 8, 7].
Exercise thyself rather unto godliness, for bodily exercise profiteth for a little time, but godliness profitable unto all things [1 Tim. 4: 8, 7].
Whether therefore ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God [1 Cor. 10-31]. Every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. They ... who run in a race ... do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we ... an incorruptible [1 Cor. 9: 24, 25].
Lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us [Heb. 12: 1].
Let all things be done decently and in order [1 Cor. 14: 40]. For God hath given us the spirit, power, and love, and a sound mind [2 Tim. 1: 7].
is love, joy, long suffering, goodness, gentleness, faith, meekness, self-control, [Gal. 5: 22, 23]. Be ye filled with the Spirit [Eph. 5: 18, 20].
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels [2 Cor. 4: 7]. For the good that I would, I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do ... I delight in the Law of God after the inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind ... Then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good, I find not [Rom. 7: 19, 22, 23, 17, 18]. Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart [1 Sam. 16: 7].
If we would judge ourselves we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord [1 Cor. 11: 31, 32]. For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth. We have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us ... after their own pleasure, but He for our profit, that we might be partakers of His holiness. No chastening for the present seemeth joyous ... nevertheless, afterward if yielded the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby [Heb. 12: 6-11].
He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire [Matt. 3: 11]. Think it not strange ... the fiery trial which is to try you ... but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings [1 Peter 4: 12, 13]; and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ [Col. 1: 24] knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience [Jas. 1: 3], and patience experience, and experience hope; and hope maketh not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given us [Rom. 5: 4, 5].
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth He any man. But every man is tempted when he is drawn away from his own lust and enticed [Jas. 1: 13,14]. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man. God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what ye are able, but will, with the temptation, also make a way of escape, that ye may be able to bear [1 Cor. 10: 13].
and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh [Gal. 5: 16]. Whatsoever things are true ... honest, ...just, ...pure, ...lovely, ...of good report; ...think on these things [Phil. 4: 8]; bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ [2 Cor. 10: 5].
Let every man prove his own work [Gal. 6: 4]. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith [2 Cor. 13: 5]. If we love one another God dwelleth in us and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in Him and he in us [1 John 4: 12, 13]. If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [Rom. 8: 9].
lest ye enter into temptation [Matt. 26: 41]. And when ye pray, use not vain repetitions ... for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask Him [Matt. 6: 7, 8]. When ye pray believe that ye receive them ... and ye shall have [Mark 11: 24]. According to your faith be it unto you [Matt. 9: 29].
Ye ask and receive not, because ye ask amiss ... that ye may consume it upon your lusts [Jas. 4: 3]. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you [John 15: 7]. Pray with the Spirit [1 Cor. 14: 15]; in faith, nothing wavering [Jas. 1: 6]. Pray for one another [Jas. 5: 16].
And if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world [1 John 2: 1, 2]. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [1 John 1: 9].
For if we sin wilfully after we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins [Heb. 10: 26]. It is impossible for those who are once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted of the good Word of God and the powers of the world to come, if they shall fall away to renew them unto repentance [Heb. 6: 4-6].
Having done all - stand! [Eph. 6: 13].
He that endureth unto the end shall be saved [Matt. 24: 13].
And I will raise him up at the last day [John 6: 44].
Ye which have followed me ... in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones [Matt. 19: 28].
I go to 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: 2, 3].
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the First Resurrection. On such the Second Death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years [Rev. 20: 6].
Of that day and hour knoweth no man [Matt. 24: 36]. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you [Acts 1: 8]; the Spirit of Truth ... will guide you into all truth ... and will show you things to come [John 16: 13].
The words are closed and sealed till the Time of the End. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried. At that time shall Michael stand up. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased ... none of the wicked shall understand; but the Wise shall understand [Dan. 12: 9,10;1: 4].
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles until the Times of the Gentiles be fulfilled [Luke 21: 24]. (God ... did visit the Gentiles to take out of them people for His name.) ... After this, I will return, and will rebuild the tabernacle of David which is fallen down, ... that the residue of men might seek after the Lord [Acts. 15: 15,16,17].
This Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come [Matt. 24: 14].
Ye brethren (partakers of the Heavenly calling [Heb. 3: 1]) are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief [1 Thess. 5: 1-4].
And the angel ... lifted up his hand to Heaven and sware by Him that liveth forever ... that there should be time no longer; but in the days of the Voice of the Seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound, the Mystery of God should be finished [Rev. 10: 5-7].
In the last days perilous times shall come ... men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, ... lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof [2 Tim. 3: 1-5].
Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased [Dan. 12: 4]. The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall jostle one another in the broad ways; they shall seem like torches; they shall run like the lightnings [Nahum 2: 3].
Upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking for those things which are coming upon the earth [Luke 21: 25, 26]. For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies ... He hath delivered them to the slaughter [Isa. 34: 2]. Go to now, ye rich men ... your riches are corrupted; ... your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasures together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the laborers ... which is of you kept back by fraud; and the cries of them ... are entered unto the ears of the Lord [James 5: 1-4].
For thus saith the Lord of hosts: I will shake the Heavens and the earth ... I will shake all nations [Hag. 2: 6] that those things which cannot be shaken may remain [Heb. 12: 27].
Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen ... Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe ... for the Day of the Lord is near [Joel 3: 9-10, 12, 14].
Behold the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His Saints, to execute judgments upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly ... of all their ungodly deeds [Jude 14,15]. For my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the Kingdoms, to pour upon them Mine indignation, even My fierce anger; for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy [Zeph. 3: 8].
The Day cometh that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble. But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth and grow up as calves of the stall [Mal. 4: 1,2]. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning [Psa. 30: 5].
At evening time it shall be light [Zech. 14: 7]. In the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a Kingdom that shall never be destroyed ... It shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever [Dan. 2: 44].
For then I will turn to the people a pure language, and they may all call upon the name of the Lord to serve Him with one consent [Zeph. 3: 9].
Let us be glad and rejoice ... for the marriage of the Lamb is come and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints [Rev. 19: 7,8].
I will show thee the Bride, the Lamb's Wife. And He ... showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God; having the glory of God ... prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband [Rev. 21: 9; 11: 1]. The Church, which is His body [Eph. 1: 23], espoused to one Husband, as a chaste Virgin to Christ [2 Cor. 11: 2]. A woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her Head (Christ is the Head of the Church [Eph. 5: 23]) a crown of twelve stars [Rev. 12: 1].
And, lo, a Lamb stood on Mount Sion, and with Him an hundred and forty and four thousand, having His Father's name written in their foreheads. And they sang as it were a new song and no man could learn that song but the 144,000 which were redeemed from the earth.
These are they which follow the Lamb, whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and the Lamb [Rev. 14: 1, 3-4].
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them [Rev. 20: 4], the saints shall judge the world [1 Cor 6: 2]. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in
On such the second death hath no power, but they shall be Priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years [Rev. 20: 6].
And I saw an angel come down from Heaven ... and he lay hold on that old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years [Rev. 20: 1-2].
And I saw another angel fly into the midst of Heaven, having the everlasting Gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue and people; saying with a loud voice, fear God, and give glory to Him for the hour of His judgment is come; and worship Him that made Heaven and earth [Rev. 14: 6, 7].
And I heard a voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men (ye are the temple of the living God [2 Cor. 6: 16]) and He that sat upon the throne said, Behold,
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end [Rev, 21: 5-6]. I will build again the tabernacle of David ... that the residue of men might seek after the Lord [Acts. 15: 16, 17]. Glory, honor and peace to every man that worketh good
and also to the Gentile [Rom. 2: 10]. They shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them ... and Jacob shall return. Though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee [Jer. 30: 9-11].
I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves and bring you into the land of Israel [Ezek. 37: 12].
I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers and they shall possess it [Jer. 30: 3] ; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them ... and I will plant them upon their land and they shall no more be pulled up [Amos 9: 14,15].
In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the North to the land I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers [Jer. 3: 18]. I will bring them from the North country and gather them from the coasts of the earth He that scattered Israel will gather him [Jer. 31: 8, 10].
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourneth for his only son [Zech. 12: 10].
Ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; and killed the Prince of Life, whom God hath raised from the dead ... through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. Repent ye therefore ... that your sins may be blotted out [Acts 3: 14, 17, 19].
At that time call Jerusalem the Throne of the Lord, and all nations shall be gathered unto it [Jer. 3: 17] ; for out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem [Isa. 2: 3].
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising ... the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee ... the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee.

Ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God [Luke 13: 28] ... whom thou shalt make Princes in all the earth [Psa. 45: 16 (R.V.)].
0, let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for Thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth [Psa. 67: 4]. Say among the heathen that
He shall judge the people righteously. Let the Heaven rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein ... for He cometh to judge the earth; He shall judge the world with righteousness and the people with His Truth [Psa. 96: 11-13].

All that are in their graves shall hear His voice and come forth. They that have done good unto the resurrection of life, and they that have done ill unto the resurrection of judgment [John, 5: 29 (R.V.)] Many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first [Matt. 19: 30].

Then shall the earth yield her increase [Psa. 67: 6], and the inhabitants shall not say I am sick [Isa. 3: 24]. They shall build houses and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not labor in vain, or bring forth for trouble [Isa. 65: 21,23].
shall be there... the Way of Holiness ... the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein ... no lion shall be there ... the redeemed shall walk there ... and the ransomed of the Lord (Christ Jesus ... gave Himself a Ransom for ALL [1 Tim. 2: 5, 6]) shall return, and come unto Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads.

I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh [Joel 2: 28].
And the Spirit and the Bride, say, Come, and let him that is athirst come, and
let him take the water of life and partake freely [Rev. 22: 17]. I will give unto him that is athirst, of the fountain of the water of Life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things ... but the unbelieving ... shall have their part in ... the Second Death [Rev. 21: 6-8].

What is man that Thou art mindful of him? For Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast placed all things under his feet; all sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field, the fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 0 Lord our Lord, how excellent is Thy name in all the earth [Psa. 8: 4-9].
Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the Kingdom of God, even the Father ... then shall the Son Himself be subject unto Him, that God may be
thou art the anointed cherub that covereth, and I have set thee so; thou wast upon the Holy Mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire; every precious stone was thy covering.

And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark [Gen. 6, 17, 18, 14, 18, 19].

One generation passeth away and another cometh, but the earth abideth forever [Ecc. 1: 4]. The Heavens and the earth which are now ... are kept in store, reserved unto fire, against the Day of Judgment [2 Peter 3: 7]. For all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy ... then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one consent [Zeph. 3: 8, 9].
Satan, which deceiveth the whole world ... was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him [Rev. 12: 9]. For God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to Tartarus, and delivered them into chains of darkness [2 Peter 2: 4].
And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou ? Then Satan answered the Lord and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it [Job 1: 6, 7]... . the kingdoms of the world ... and the glory of them ... is delivered unto me, and to whomsoever I will give it [Luke 4: 5, 6].
And the whole world lieth in wickedness [1 John 5: 19] for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places [Eph. 6: 12] ; the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience [Eph. 2: 2].
Regard not them that have
The soul that turneth after such ... I will even set My face against that soul and will cut him off from among his people [Lev. 20: 6]. A man also or a woman that hath a familiar spirit shall surely be put to death [Lev. 20: 27].
There shall not be found among you anyone that ... useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits ... for all these things are an abomination unto the Lord [Deut. 18: 10-12].
Should not a people seek unto their God ? To the Law and to the Testimony; if they speak not according to this Word it is because there is no light in them [Isa. 8: 19, 20]. The dead know not anything ... for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge in the grave [Ecc. 9: 5, 10].
Be not soon shaken in mind ... as that the Day of Christ is at hand ... for that Day shall not come except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed ... even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders; and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness [2 Thes. 2 : 3-10]. He shall speak words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and shall think to change times and laws [Dan. 7: 25].
Some shall depart from the Faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils (the serpent said unto the woman, Thou shalt not surely die [Gen. 3: 4] [1 Tim. 4: 1]); teaching for doctrines the commandments of men [Matt. 15: 9].
They have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters.
Which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart [Jer. 7: 31]. For God is love [1 John 4: 8].
When the Son of man cometh, shall He find Faith on the earth [Luke 18: 8]? For men shall be lovers of their own selves ... Lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof [2 Tim. 3: 1-5] scoffers, walking after their own lusts and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation [2 Peter 3: 3, 4].
The lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness [2 Peter 3: 9]. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried ... and knowledge shall be increased ... None of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand [Dan. 12: 10, 4, 10].
The path of the just is a shining light, that shineth more and more unto the Perfect Day [Prov. 4: 18].
The God of Peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly [Rom. 16: 20]. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the ways of the devil [1 John 3: 8].
The Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the Heavens (the rulers of the darkness of this world [Eph. 6: 12]) shall pass away ... the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up [2 Peter 3: 10] for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy [Zeph. 3: 8].
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief [1 Thess. 5: 4]. We, according to His promise, look for
wherein dwelleth righteousness [2 Peter 3: 13]. For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one consent [Zeph. 3: 9]. God will have all men to come unto the knowledge of the Truth [1 Tim. 2: 3-6]. For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea [Hab. 2: 14].
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly, Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus [Rev. 22: 20].
