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.
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.
8: I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
10: And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face.
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;
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.
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:
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;
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.

"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.
