25Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.  
26I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. Hear
27They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.  
28Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. Learn

Speak

29And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. Do
30As he spake these words, many believed on him.  
31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; Continue hearing and doing

Abiding forever

32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Free
33They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?  
34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.  
35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. Eternal Life
36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.  
   
   
16Do not err, my beloved brethren.  
17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Freedom
18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.  
19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:  
20For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.  
21Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.  
22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.  
23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:  
24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.  
25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. Continue in hearing and doing
26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.  
27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

5The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.  
 6And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.  
   
   
27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;  
 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:  
 29That no flesh should glory in his presence.  
 30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:  
 31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.  
   
   
9For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.  
   
   
13Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.  
 14And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.  
   
   
14For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,  
 15Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,  
 16That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;  
 17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,  
 18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;  
 19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.  
 20Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,  
 21Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.  
   
   
 9(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?  
 10He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)  
   
   
17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.  
 18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;  
 19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;  
 20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:  
 13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.  
 14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.  
 15And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;  
 16And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.  
 17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.  
 18And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.  
 19And when even was come, he went out of the city.  
 20And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.  
 21And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
 22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.  
 23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.  
 24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.  
 25And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.  
 26But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.  
   
   
28And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?  
 29And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.  
   
   
   
   
3And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:  
 4And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;  
 5We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:  
 6Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.  
 7O 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.  
 😯 Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.  
 9To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;  
 10Neither 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.  
 11Yea, 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.  
 12And 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.  
 13As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayerbefore the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.  
 14Therefore 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.  
 15And 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.  
 16O 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.  
 17Now therefore, O our God, hearthe prayerof thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shineupon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake.  
 18O my God, inclinethine ear, and hear; openthine eyes, and beholdour 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.  
 19O 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.  
 20And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God;  
   
   
 4And 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,  
 5And 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:  
 6Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hearthe 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.  
 7We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.  
 8Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:  
 9But 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.  
 10Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.  
 11O 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: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king’s cupbearer.

Isaiah 58

 
 1Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.  
 2Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.  
 3Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.  
 4Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.  
 5Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?  
 6Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Bound – Loose
 7Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?  
 8Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward.  
 9Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;  
 10And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:  
 11And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.  
 12And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.  
 13If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him,

not doing thine own ways,

nor finding thine own pleasure,

nor speaking thine own words:

Deny oneself
 14Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.  
   
   
   
   
 13When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?  
 14And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.  
 15He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?  
 16And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.  
 17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.  
 18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  
 19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  
 20Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.  
 21From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.  
 22Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.  
 23But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.  
 24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  
 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.  
 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?  
 27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.  
 28Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.  

New Name

   
New Name  
   
   
 8Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: Predestinated
 9And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. Called

Justified

Glorified

   
 29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.  
 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.  
 31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?  
   
   
 17He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.  
   
   
3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;  
 4And patience, experience; and experience, hope:  
 5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
