Asa cried unto the Lord his God, and said, Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O Lord our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O Lord, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee. – Jehoshaphat cried out, and the Lord helped him.
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. – There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God.
The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. – No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. – And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. – He that hath seen me hath seen the Father. – The brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person. – God was manifest in the flesh.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. – Whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
As we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
He shall choose our inheritance for us. – He led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: so the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. – Who teacheth like Him?
We walk by faith, not by sight. – Here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. – Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul. – Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.
Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death. – I will teach you the good and the right way. – I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. – Follow me.
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. – Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
An highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. – Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord.
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.
He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. – He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. – Hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. … Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. – We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
You hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins. – Quickened … together with Christ. – Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.
Have faith in God. … Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. – Without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
He that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead. – Being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
Is any thing too hard for the Lord? – With God all things are possible. – Lord, increase our faith.
It is the Lord: let him do what seemeth him good. – Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge. – The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. – What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?
Jesus wept. – A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. – Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows.
Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. … Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. – Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness. – In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him. … And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up. … Pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
Without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers. – Always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
Of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. … And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. – The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. – The coming of the Lord draweth nigh. … The judge standeth before the door. – Surely I come quickly.
Seeing … that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness.
The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. – Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; and ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
