The Amor of God

The Armor of God

13Wherefore 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.

14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and


having on the breastplate of righteousness;


15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;


16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.


17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:


Our Crown, Oil, and Garments

3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them

beauty for ashes,

Crown – knowledge

the oil of joy for mourning,

Oil – joy

the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;

Garment – faith

that they might be called

trees of righteousness,


the planting of the LORD,


that he might be glorified.

Salvation, The Spirit, The Word

2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him—
Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
Spirit of counsel and of power,
Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD



3 and he will delight in the fear of the LORD.
He will not
judge by what he sees with his eyes,
decide by what he hears with his ears;


4 but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with
the rod of his mouth;
the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.



5 Righteousness will be his belt
faithfulness the sash around his waist.

longsuffering, gentleness, goodness

19 Tamar put ashes on her head and tore the ornamented robe she was wearing. She put her hand on her head and went away, weeping aloud as she went.

love, joy, peace,

7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
anointing you with the oil of joy.

faith, meekness, temperance

5Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.


11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.


25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


10 commandments – Do’s

10 Commandments – Do’s

Thou shalt not kill.

Do: love your enemy, forgive them

sacrificial love

 44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

 21Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

 22Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

 24Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

 25He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Do: have a pure heart

 18But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

 19For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

 20These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

Thou shalt not steal.

Do: be Do: a faithful servant, feed the sheep

 21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

42And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

 15So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

 16He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

 17He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Do: testify, witness

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

 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

 47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

 48And ye are witnesses of these things.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Do: seek His kingdom and His righteousness

 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

 8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

 9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

 10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

 11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

 12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.



not by works, so that no one can boast.

 1And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel.

 2At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.

 3And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.

 4And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt.

 5Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised.

our blood

our flesh

 6For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

 7And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way.

 8And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were whole.

whole, perfected


 9And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.

fetter, shackle, the stone rolled away at the tomb

 10And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.

 11And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day.

 12And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.


solid food


it is the gift of God

 14And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

 15And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

 16For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

 17And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

 18For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

 19And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

His flesh

 20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

His blood

 21But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

 22And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!

 23And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith

 12Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

 13But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

 14For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

 15While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

 16For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

 17But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

 18And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

 19So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

 1Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

 2For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

 3For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

Be diligent to eat solid food

 12For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

 13For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

 14But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.

Godly desire – whatever we ask in His name

the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

that ye,

being rooted and grounded in love,


abiding in Jesus

19And to know the love of Christ,

which passeth knowledge,

that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.


8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.


20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.


22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:


23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.


24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

where Jesus is

25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

6Thy righteousness is like the great mountains;

thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.

7How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

8They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

9For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

10O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.

1. Vain Thoughts

37I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

 38I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

 39They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

 40But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

 41Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

 42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

2. Can’t Understand The Truth

 43Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

 44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 45And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

 46Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

 47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

 48Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

 49Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

 50And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

3. Separated from the Life of God

 51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

 52Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

 53Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

 54Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

 55Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

 56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

 57Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

 59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

 19Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?

 24Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

2. Can’t Understand The Truth

 28Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

 29But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.

3. Separated from the Life of God

 33Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.

 34Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
