Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. – Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? – Heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
The Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me. – God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. – There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. – He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
If the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: and if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. … But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
It came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the Lord spake unto Joshua, saying, … Take you hence out of the midst of Jordan, out of the place where the priests’ feet stood firm, twelve stones, … and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever. – This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. – Witnesses chosen before of God, … who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey.
All these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. … The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. – As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. – It is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. – Unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Who is sufficient for these things? – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: … and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
The kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea.
Though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! … I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. – My word … shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please. – So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. – Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world. … At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me. – When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. – Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. – I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore. – I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. – My peace I give unto you.
My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, … but now is my kingdom not from hence. – Expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. – Thou … hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. – I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: … and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. – Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. – Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; but for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead.
The promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
The just shall live by faith. – Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised). – Our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. – With God nothing shall be impossible. … And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. – Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions? – I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go.
Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits. – I am come into my garden. – I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain.
Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. – I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. – Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. – The world seeth me no more; but ye see me.
Thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. – Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. … I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. – To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. – I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: … I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.
As he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. – Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? – Ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. – Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. – I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
The work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
Stand … having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness. … 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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. – The Lord is with thee, … Go in this thy might.
