Our Infirmities

   
Our Infirmities  
   
   
 23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.  
 24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?  
 25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.  
 26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  
 27And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  
 28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  
 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.  
   
   
 31And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.  
 32And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.  
 33But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.  
 34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  
   
   
 35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.  
 36And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?  
 37They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.  
 38But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?  
 39And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:  
 40But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.  
   
   
 27And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.  
 28But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.  
 29But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.  
 30And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.  
 31But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.  
 32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.  
 33And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;  
 34And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.  
 35And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.  
 36And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.  
 37And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?  
 38Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.  
 39And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.  
 40And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.  
 41And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.  
   
   
 20But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,  
 21Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Life of God

   
Life of God  
   
17This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk,

in the vanity of their mind,

 
 18Having the understanding darkened,

being alienated from the life of God

through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart

 
   
   

Romans 8

 
Mind  
 1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  
 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.  
 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:  
 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  
 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  
 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  
 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  
 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  
 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.  
 10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.  
 11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.  
 12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.  
 13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.  
 14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  
 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.  
   
Understanding  
 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:  
 17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.  
 18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.  
 19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.  
 20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,  
 21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.  
 22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.  
 23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.  
 24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?  
 25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.  
 26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  
 27And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  
 28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  
 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.  
   
Life of God  
 31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?  
 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?  
 33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.  
 34Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.  
 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  
 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  
 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  
 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,  
 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  

God Hears Us

   
God Hears Us  
   
   
 26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  
 27And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  
   
   
39Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.  
 40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?  
 41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.  
 42And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.  
 43And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.  
   
   
 1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.  
 2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:  
 3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.  
 4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  
 5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.  
 6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.  
   
   
13These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.  
 14And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:  
 15And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.  
 16If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.  
 17All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.  

Redeemer

   
Redeemer  
   
Intercessor  
13In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.  
 14And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.  
 15Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.  
 16And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.  
 17For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.  
 18According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.  
 19So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.  
 20And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.  
   
Witness  
 1Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.  
 2Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?  
 3I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.  
 4For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.  
 5And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.  
 6And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.  
   
   
 1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  
 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.  
 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:  
 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  
 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  
 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  
 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  
 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  
   
   
 23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  
 24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:  
 25Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  
 26To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Judge, Testify  
 28And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.  
 29And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.  
   
 27For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.  
 28Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.  
 29And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;  
 30That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.  
   
23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
 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.  
   
   
By Being Perfected in Love  
   
 14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.  
 15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.  
 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.  
 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.  
 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.  
 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.  
 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.  
 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.  
   
   
 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.  
   
   
 31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  
 32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:  
 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  
 34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:  
 35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:  
 36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.  
 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?  
 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?  
 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?  
 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  
 41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:  
 42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:  
 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.  
 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?  
 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.  
 46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

 1Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.  
 2Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?  
 3I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.  
 4For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.  
 5And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.  
 6And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.  
 7I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses. I will speak the truth

The children of God will not lie

 8For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.  
 9In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.  
 10But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.  
 11Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?  
 12That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?  
 13That led them through the deep, as an horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble?  
 14As a beast goeth down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD caused him to rest: so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name.  
 15Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory: where is thy zeal and thy strength, the sounding of thy bowels and of thy mercies toward me? are they restrained?  
 16Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.  
 17O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.  
 18The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary.  
 19We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name.
