Crown – Helmet of Salvation

   
Crown – Helmet of Salvation  
   
   
10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joyupon their heads: they shall obtainjoy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.  
   
   
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  
   
   
17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,  
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:  
19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.  
20 But ye have not so learned Christ;  
21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:  
22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;  
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;  
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.  
   
   
20 Verily, 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.  
21 A 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.  
22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
23 And 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.  
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  

Mercy

   
Mercy  
   
   
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.  
   
   
My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction.  
   
   
Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth.  
Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.  
5 And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.  
   
   
25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?  
26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?  
27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.  
28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.  
29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?  
30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.  
31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.  
32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.  
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,  
34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.  
35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.  
36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?  
37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.  
   
   
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:  
   
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  
   
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?  
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

1. Light and Lampstand  
   
   
2 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;  
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:  
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.  
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.  
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.  
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate. Evil, Lie
7 He 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 tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.  
   
   
   
   
13 The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.  
2 Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.  
3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness. Light in lampstand
4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.  
5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.  
6 Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.  
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:  
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.  
9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.  
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. Removed lampstand
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.  
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.  
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.  
14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.  
15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.  
16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.  
17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.  
18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children.  
19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.  
20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.  
21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.  
22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.  
14 For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob. For His name’s sake

2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the Lord for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.  
3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,  
4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!  
5 The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.  
6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.  
7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.  
8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.  
9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.  
10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?  
11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.  
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Removed lampstand

First love, First works

 

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: Evil

Lies

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.  
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. weaken  
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;  
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?  
18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.  
19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.  
20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.  
21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.  
22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord.  
23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the Lord of hosts.  
24 The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:  
25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.  
26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.  
27 For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?  
28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.  
29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.  
30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant. Repent

31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

14 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.  
2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.  
3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.  
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.  
5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.  
Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.  
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.  

Sin no more

43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.  
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.  
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.  
   
   
13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.  
14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.  
   

Bind, Be Bound, Loose, Be Loosed

   
Bind, Be Bound, Loose, Be Loosed  
   
   
Judge not, that ye be not judged.  
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  
   
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall bebound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  
   
18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  
   
   
38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:  
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.  
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.  
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.  
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.  
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.  
44 But 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;  
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?  
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?  
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
