Sanctify

 

Sanctify

15 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,

16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.

17 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.

18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;

19 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.

20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;

21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever.

24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?

25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.

26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies’ sake.

Faith and Action

12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

faith

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

action

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

Witness

ministry

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

To sanctify and to be sanctified

17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

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

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

21 That 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.

3 But fornication, and
all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once
named among you, as becometh saints;

4 Neither filthiness,
nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not
convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

5 For this ye know, that no
whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous
man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of
Christ and of God.

Three Types of Soils

Three
Types of Soils

 1Blessed is the man that
walketh not in the counsel of the
ungodly,

Seed
by the way

nor standeth in the way of
sinners,

Seed
in stony place

nor sitteth in the seat of the
scornful.

Seed
among the thorns

 2But his delight
is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he
meditate
day and night.

 3And he shall be like a
tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth
his
fruit
in his
season;

his leaf also shall not
withe
r;

and whatsoever he doeth shall
prosper.

 4The ungodly
are not so:

but are like the chaff
which the wind driveth away.

Catches
away

 5Therefore the ungodly
shall not stand in the judgment,

Offended

nor sinners in the
congregation of the righteous.

Choke
the word

 6For the LORD knoweth
the way of the righteous:

but the way of the ungodly
shall perish.

 18Hear ye therefore the
parable of the sower
.

 19When any one heareth
the word of the kingdom, and
understandeth
it not, then cometh
the
wicked one
, and
catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which
received
seed
by the way

side.

 20But he that received
the
seed into stony places
,
the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth
it;

 21Yet hath he not root
in himself, but dureth for a while: for when
tribulation
or
persecution
ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

 22He also that received
seed
among the thorns

is he that heareth the word; and

the
care of this world
,
and the

deceitfulness
of riches
,
choke the word, and he becometh
unfruitful.

 23But he that received
seed into the good ground is he that
heareth
the word, and
understandeth
it; which also beareth
fruit,
and bringeth forth, some an
hundredfold,
some sixty, some thirty.

Desire

Godly
Desire

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.

1 If ye then be risen with
Christ, seek those things which are above, where
Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on
things above, not on things on the earth.

3 For ye are dead, and
your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, who is our
life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him
in glory.

Godliness

Eusebeia

Thou shalt not
commit adultery.

5 Mortify therefore
your members which are upon the earth; fornication,
uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil
concupiscence
, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

6 For which things’ sake the
wrath of God
cometh on the children of disobedience:

7 In the which ye also walked
some time, when ye lived in them.

8 But now ye also put off
all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy,
filthy communication out of your mouth.

Holiness

Semnotes
: sanctity, honour, purity

Thou shalt not
bear false witness against thy neighbour.

9 Lie not one to
another, seeing that ye have put off the old man
with his deeds;

10 And have put on the new
man
, which is renewed in knowledge after the
image of him that created him:

11 Where there is neither
Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian,
Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Quietness

Eremos
← solitary, deserted

Thou shalt not
steal.

12 Put on therefore, as the
elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness,
longsuffering;

13 Forbearing one
another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a
quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

14 And above all these things
put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Peace

Hesuchios
← steadfast, to hold in the hand

Thou shalt not
kill.

15 And let the peace of God
rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one
body; and be ye thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ
dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing
one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with
grace in your hearts to the Lord.

17 And whatsoever ye do in
word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving
thanks to God and the Father by him.

1I exhort therefore, that,
first of all,

supplications,

prayers,

intercessions, and

giving of thanks,

be made for all men;

2 For kings, and for all that
are in authority; that we may lead a

quiet and

peaceable life in all

godliness and

honesty.

15 So the wall was finished in
the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days.

16 And it came to pass, that
when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen
that were about us saw these things, they were much
cast down
in their own eyes: for they perceived
that this
work was

wrought
of our God
.

Enemies
mourn

1 And all the people gathered
themselves together as one man into the street that was before the
water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book
of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.

2 And Ezra the priest brought
the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all
that could hear with understanding,
upon the first day of the seventh month.

3 And he read therein before
the street that was before the water gate from the morning until
midday, before the men and the women, and those that could
understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the
book of the law.

6 And Ezra blessed the LORD,
the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with
lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped
the LORD with their faces to the ground.

7 Also Jeshua, and Bani, and
Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita,
Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the
people to understand the law:
and the people stood in their place.

8 So they read in the book in
the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to
understand the reading.

9 And Nehemiah, which is the
Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that
taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto
the LORD your God; mourn
not, nor weep.
For all the people wept,
when they heard the words of the law.

Chosen
ones mourn

10 Then he said unto them, Go
your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto
them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our
LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your
strength.

29 Immediately 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:

30 And 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.

Both
enemies and chosen ones.

31 And 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.

32 Now learn a parable of the
fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves,
ye know that summer is nigh:

33 So likewise ye, when ye
shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the
doors.

34 Verily I say unto you, This
generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35 Heaven and earth shall pass
away, but my words shall not pass away.

 15When ye therefore
shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the
prophet,
stand
in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him
understand🙂
