Conviction

 

Conviction of the Holy Spirit

 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

 9Of sin, because they believe not on me;

 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

 11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

 13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

 14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

 15And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

 16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

Enemy

 

Christ will save us from our enemies

Lean not on your own understanding

Who is our neigbhor?

– the good Samaritan

Who is our enemies?

– the members of this own family

Always do good to everyone

to serve the LORD in holiness and righteousness

His pupose

71That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;

74That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,

 75In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

Love your enemies

 27But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,

 28Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

 29And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.

 30Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

 31And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

 32For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

 33And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.

 34And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

 35But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

 36Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

 37Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

 38Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Overcome evil by doing good

 19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

 20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Don’t become enemies of God

27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

 38Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

 39And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

 40And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

 41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

 42Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.

 43For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,

 44And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

42And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

 43Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Coming

 

Coming

27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

First Coming

For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

18For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

19And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

20(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:

21And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)

22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto

the city of the living God,

the heavenly Jerusalem, and to

an innumerable company of angels,

23To the general assembly and

church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to

God the Judge of all, and to

the spirits of just men made perfect,

24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to

the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

27And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

29For our God is a consuming fire.

Second Coming

29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The Fall of Man

Good for food

Pleasing to the eyes

Desirable to make one wise

 9And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

 16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

 1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

 5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

 6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

 8And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

He raised us up and seated us with Him

the fullness of Christ

the eyes of your understanding

the spirit of wisdom and revelation

 15Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

 16Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

 17That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

 18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

eternal life

 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Effect

 

Effect

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

 10By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

47Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
