Friend of God
Now Playing: Are we willing to let our faith be tested by God ?
Topic: Guidance
Genesis 18:16-21

Abraham's faith grew and developed through the spiritual exercise of testing. This is also why God permits our faith to be tested.

First Peter 1:7 says the purpose of testing is so "the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ."

In Genesis 18 there are some very significant statements about Abraham. The Lord said, "Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?" (vv. 17,18).

The Lord was going to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, but He told Abraham first. Truly, Abraham was the friend of God.

God said of Abraham, "For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him" (v. 19).

What a tremendous statement--and to think it was spoken by God Himself! God knew Abraham intimately, and He knows every detail about us.

Are we determined to do His will at any cost? Does He have first place in our lives and thinking? Do we command our children and our household after Him?

"He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye" (Deut. 32:10).

Communion or Circumstances
Now Playing: What directs our pathway ?
Topic: Guidance
Communion OR Circumstances ?

Circumstance #1;

Jonah 1:
1: Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
2: Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
3: But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
4: But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.

Circumstance #2;

Genesis 12:
7: And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.
8: And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.
9: And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
10: And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

Communion #1;

Psalm 32:
8: I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Communion #2;

Deuteronomy 34:
10: And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face.

Communion #3;

Genesis 24:
27:Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth:

I being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren.

Eight Faithful Promises;

John 14:
16: And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, #1- that he may abide with you for ever; 17: Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18: I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, #2- he shall teach you all things, and #3- bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:
26: But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, #4- he shall testify of me:

John 16:
13: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, #5- he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and #6- he will shew you things to come.
14: #7- He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, #8- and shall shew it unto you.
15: All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Submission to the Holy Spirit;

Acts 16:
6: Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
7: After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
8: And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.
9: And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
10: And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavored to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.
(put together by Poet ink)

"I have set before thee an opened (conotes purposed of God) door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name." Revelation 3:8


1.Lead on, almighty Lord,
Lead on to victory:
Encouraged by Thy blessed word,
With joy we follow Thee.

2.We follow Thee, our Guide,
Who didst salvation bring:
We follow Thee, through grace supplied
From heavens's eternal spring:

3.Till of the prize possessed,
We hear of war no more,
And, O sweet thought !for ever rest
On yonder peaceful shore.

Sound of the Trumpet
Now Playing: Are we listening to hear His direction ?
Topic: Guidance
The sound of the trumpet

Numbers 10:9:

And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.


2 Corinthians 7:5

"...but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears..."


"But even this is not enough. Nehemiah tells the nobles: "The work is great and extended, and we are scattered upon the wall, one far from another: in what place ye hear the sound of the trumpet, thither shall ye assemble to us; our God will fight for us" (vv. 19, 20). To be effective, the work must be a combined effort. When the enemy appears, believers must not be found scattered, and if there is no combined resistance at the point of attack, they are sure to succumb. The adversary takes advantage of the scattered condition of the children of God, and their gathering together is what is most contrary to him, because he knows that this multiplies their strength.

And so his first concern, when he attacks them, is to sow discord and divisions among them. That is the reason why this call of God: "Assemble to us", still resounds on every side, as in the days of Nehemiah. We have a center of gathering. Let us gather together around our Head. The trumpet has already resounded so as to be heard by one and all. Let us make haste; let us not say: 'My work is enough for me'. No, our Head says, it is not enough, for if the enemy finds you isolated, he will destroy both you and your work. The danger is threatening. Let us gather together instead of scattering.

May we have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the assemblies. It is all very well to build in front of one's home, but it is the general interests of the people of God which claim all our energy in view of our brothers. That is why the trumpet calls us together. Soon, when the battle is over, the trumpet will gather us for the last time where there is no more question of building or of self-defense, but where we will enjoy eternal rest in peace!"

Perfect Storm
Now Playing: Are we looking to Him in our troubles?
Topic: Guidance
The Perfect Storm (composed by D. Hopkins)

Matthew 14: 24-33; "But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

"And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, 'It is a spirit';
and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, 'Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.' And Peter answered Him and said, 'Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.' And He said, 'Come'.

"And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, 'Lord, save me'. And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, 'O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?'

"And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. Then they that were in the ship came
and worshipped Him, saying, 'Of a truth thou art the Son of God'."

"The ship"; the vessel of testimony as typologically depicted in Acts 27

"The midst of the sea"; (Revelation 13:1), the turbulent mass of unsettled nations in anarchy and confusion, Isaiah 57:20. Tossed with the waves, for the wind was contrary;

Ephesians 4:14: "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about
with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;" The disturbance may be instigated by people (the sea) promulgating their views / doctrines (the contrary (1 Timothy 1:10) wind) thus destabilizing the ship, creating fear for those onboard.

"Fourth watch of the night"; between 3-6 am in the midst of darkness (1 Thess 5:5, Colossians 1:13), He was watching from on high, (verse 23) when all seems hopeless, the chaos is enveloped in darkness.

They did not go to Jesus, Jesus went to them, walking upon the sea! (Psalm 77:19: Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.) The chaos cannot prevent His steps nor turn Him away from that which distresses the heart of His beloved, He walks upon the very source of our distresses they have no choice but to bow
beneath His steps.

His presence is mistaken, causing FEAR, often our lack of faith will put the Lord in a light in which we fail to recognize The Saviour, coming to save.

Jesus speaks, (literally) "Be courageous, I AM, fear not".

"Lord, IF", Peter states, it is enough for the Saviour to welcome Peter into this new adventure,

"Come", As much as Peter desired to get to Jesus, his beloved Master, his beloved Master Jesus, desired Peter to be with Him. Peter wanted nothing else than to be with Jesus in the midst of this storm.

Peter did not realize it is difficult to walk on water, if your eyes are on the winds (not waves).

In the midst of trouble, we can walk on the water, (Ephesians 5: 26) however, when the winds of doctrine trouble the waters, our vision of the Christ is eclipsed, though he walked upon the water, he began to sink beneath the waves.

"When he saw the wind, strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried,'Lord save me'."

He took his eyes off of the Lord Jesus, which allowed him to see the strong wind, which created fear, which debilitated his faith, which impaired his walk, which caused him to begin sinking.

'As he began to sink', (if we could only learn to call upon Him early in our troubles.) he called upon the Name of the Lord, AND IMMEDIATELY, Jesus stretched forth His hand and Caught him, Ironically, the One for whom time would come to symbolize with the sign of a fish, just caught a fisherman. ( The FISH, Greek ICHTHOS(Jesus Christ Gods Son the Saviour)

"O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt".

When Jesus entered the ship, the wind ceased, doctrinal divorces cease when the Lord Jesus is
welcomed into our circumstances, because His presence will provoke the humbled saint to worship;

No comment on the storm, no comment on Peter walking on the water, no comment on the miracle of the wind ceasing,
"Of a truth, Thou art the Son Of God".

He engaged their eyes, and He raptures their hearts.

So may it be with us.

---------------------------------------
(hymn added by RKG)

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

WHY those fears? Behold, 'tis Jesus
Holds the helm, and guides the ship;
Spread the sails, and catch the breezes
Sent to waft us through the deep
To the regions, to the regions
Where the mourners cease to weep.

Though the shore we hope to land on
Only by report is known,
Yet we freely all abandon,
Led by that report alone,
And with Jesus, And with Jesus
Through the trackless deep move on.

Led by faith, we brave the ocean;
Led by faith, the storm defy;
Calm amidst tumultuous motion,
Knowing that the Lord is nigh;
Waves obey Him, waves obey Him,
And the storms before Him fly.

Rendered safe by His protection,
We shall pass the watery waste,
Trusting to His wise direction,
We shall gain the port at last;
And with wonder, and with wonder
Think on toils and dangers past.

O what pleasures there await us!
There the tempests cease to roar;
There it is that those that hate us
Can molest our peace no more;
Trouble ceases, trouble ceases
On that tranquil, happy shore.

Ways of God
Now Playing: How can we understand what is right?
Topic: Guidance
As we have learned from previous circumstances (Genesis 30:27), we must search the scriptures (Luke 24:45) for the divine principles to guide our footsteps (Psalm 17:5), and resist the enemy's attempt to flood our mind (Isaiah 59:19) with the leaven of matters not rightly belonging to us (Leviticus 10:10, Deuteronomy 23:14). The Spirit of God has to give discernment as to what scriptures apply in each difficulty which arises amongst His people (John 16:13-15, John 7:14-18, Hebrews 5:12-14).

The enemy would work to leaven our conscience with that which defiles (Hebrews 12:15), while the Lord will work to awaken our conscience (1 Timothy 1:19) as to His ways (Psalm 103:7) and purposes (Ecclesiastes 3:17) in these sorrows through which we must pass. We are not God's earthly people, and we have a heavenly calling (Ephesians 2:19-22, 1 Peter 2:9-10), yet the moral ways of God are the same (Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8) and we do well to meditate on His Word (1 Timothy 4:15) so that we are equipped (2 Timothy 3:17) to deal with the devices of the enemy (2 Corinthians 2:11). The following scriptures have been a help (Psalm 60:11) in my own soul to understand more of the ways of God with His people (Deuteronomy 10:12, Joshua 22:5) and the scriptural principles applicable in the assembly (1 Timothy 3:15, 4:16, Titus 1:9, 1 Corinthians 5:4).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hebrews 4

(v.12) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Psalm 31

(v.3) For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
(v.4) Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.

Psalm 32

(v.6) For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
(v.7) Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
(v.8) I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

(v.72) So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

(v.21) Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
(v.22) And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
(v.23) They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
(v.24) These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

(v.25) For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
(v.26) They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
(v.27) They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.

(v.28) Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
(v.29) He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
(v.30) Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Exodus 15

(v.11) Who is like unto thee, O LORD... who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
(v.13) Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

Isaiah 54

(v.17) No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD...

2 Corinthians 10

(v.3) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(v.4) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,
but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
(v.5) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself
against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity
every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Ephesians 6

(v.10) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
(v.11) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
(v.12) 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.
(v.13) 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.
(v.14) Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth...

Psalm 25

(v.8) Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
(v.9) The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
(v.10) All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
(v.11) For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.

(v.12) What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
(v.13) His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
(v.14) The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

2 Kings 22

(v.18) Thus saith the LORD God of Israel,
'As touching the words which thou hast heard;

(v.19) Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself
before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place,
and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse,
and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me;
I also have heard thee,' saith the LORD.

Nehemiah 1

(v.2) I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.
(v.3) And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.
(v.4) And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

(v.5) And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:
(v.6) Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.
(v.7) We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.

(v.8) Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:
(v.9) But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

(v.10) Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.
(v.11) O LORD, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name:

Daniel 9

(v.7) O LORD, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
(v.8) O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
(v.9) To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;
(v.10) Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
(v.11) Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.
(v.12) And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.

(v.13) As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.
(v.14) Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.
(v.15) And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.

(v.16) O LORD, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.
(v.17) Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord's sake.
(v.18) O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
(v.19) O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

1 Chronicles 12

(v.32) And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding
of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred;
and all their brethren were at their commandment.

(v.38) All these men of war, that could keep rank, came with a perfect heart to Hebron,
to make David king over all Israel: and all the rest also of Israel were of one heart to make David king.

2 Chronicles 6

(v.24) And if thy people Israel be put to the worse before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee; and shall return and confess thy name, and pray and make supplication before thee in this house;
(v.25) Then hear thou from the heavens, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest to them and to their fathers.
(v.26) When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;

(v.27) Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast
taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land,
which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance.
(v.28) If there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillars; if their enemies besiege them in the cities of their land; whatsoever sore or whatsoever sickness there be:
(v.29) Then what prayer or what supplication soever shall be made of any man, or of all thy people Israel, when every one shall know his own sore and his own grief, and shall spread forth his hands in this house:

(v.30) Then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men:)
(v.31) That they may fear thee, to walk in thy ways, so long as they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers.
(v.32) Moreover concerning the stranger, which is not of thy people Israel, but is come from a far country for thy great name's sake, and thy mighty hand, and thy stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house;

(v.33) Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name.
(v.34) If thy people go out to war against their enemies by the way that thou shalt send them, and they pray unto thee toward this city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name;
(v.35) Then hear thou from the heavens their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.

2 Chronicles 30

(v.11) Nevertheless divers of Asher and Manasseh and of Zebulun
humbled themselves, and came to Jerusalem.
(v.12) Also in Judah the hand of God was to give them
one heart to do the commandment of the king and of the princes,
by the word of the LORD.

Jeremiah 32

(v.37) I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:
(v.38) And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:
(v.39) And I will give them one heart, and one way,
that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:

(v.40) And I will make an everlasting covenant with them,
that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
(v.41) Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and
I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.

Acts 20

(v.27) For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
(v.28) Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

(v.29) For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
(v.30) Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
(v.31) Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
(v.32) And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Hebrews 2

(v.1) Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

1 Timothy 6

(v.3) If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
(v.4) He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words,
whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

2 Corinthians 1

(v.12) For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
(v.13) For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;

2 Corinthians 11

(v.2) For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
(v.3) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

2 Timothy 1

(v.12) I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
(v.13) Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
(v.14) That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

2 Timothy 2

(v.14) Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
(v.15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
(v.16) But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
(v.17) And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
(v.18) Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

(v.19) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, 'The Lord knoweth them that are his'. And, 'Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity'.
(v.20) But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
(v.21) If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
(v.22) Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

(v.23) But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
(v.24) And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
(v.25) In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
(v.26) And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

2 Timothy 3

(v.14) But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

Luke 11

(v.34) The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
(v.35) Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
(v.36) If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

Romans 15

(v.5) Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be
likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
(v.6) That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 2

(v.1) If there be therefore any consolation in Christ,
if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
(v.2) Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,
having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

1 Peter 3

(v.8) Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another,
love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

Ephesians 4

(v.1) I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy
of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
(v.2) With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering,
forbearing one another in love;
(v.3) Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
