Dwell

   
Dwell  
   
   
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.  
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.  
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  
8 Finally, brethren,

whatsoever things are true,

whatsoever things are honest,

whatsoever things are just,

whatsoever things are pure,

whatsoever things are lovely,

whatsoever things are of good report;

if there be any virtue, and

if there be any praise,

think on these things.

Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Fruit

   
   
37 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. Rejoice in the Lord
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.  
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Be with Jesus where He is
Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Fruit
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.  
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.  
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.  
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.  
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.  
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.  
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.  
16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.  
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.  
18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.  
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.  
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.  
21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.  
22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.  
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.  
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.  
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.  
26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.  
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.  
28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.  
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.  
30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.  
31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.  
32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.  
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.  
34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.  
35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.  
36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.  
37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.  
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.  
39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.  
40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.  
   
   
   
   
   
14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. Trust in the Lord
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.  
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?  
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?  
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.  
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. Trust and do good
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.  
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;  
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.  
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.  
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.  
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.  
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.  
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.  
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.  
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.  
   
   
   

Faith

   
Faith  
   
   
11 Now faith is  
the substance of things hoped for,  
the evidence of things not seen.  
   
   
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by theblood of Jesus, Substance – His blood

Hope – Cleansing Jesus

20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; Evidence – His body

Unseen – Interceding Christ

21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having

our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and

our bodies washed with pure water.

 
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)  
   
   
What is to come  
   
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. What is to come
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. What is to come
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,  
21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. What is to come
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.  
23 And 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. What is to come
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? What is to come
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.  
26 Likewise 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.  
27 And 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.  
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  
29 For 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.  
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.  

Greater

   
Greater  
   
   
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.  
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.  
20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.  
21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.  
   
   
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.  
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.  
   
   
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.  
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.  
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  

Being Kept

   
Being Kept  
   
   
14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:  
15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.  
16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.  
17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.  
18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish. shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
19 In your patience possess ye your souls. Abide,
   
   
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.  
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.  
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  
   
   
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. In your patience possess ye your souls.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  

Profession

 

 

Profession

 

 

 

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

 

17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

 

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

 

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

 

20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

 

21 And having an high priest over the house of God;

 

22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

 

23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

 

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

 

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

26 But 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:

 

27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

 

 

 

14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

through our word and deed

15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

 

 

 

 

 

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

A tenth, substance

6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

Water – our word and deed / Blood – repent and forgiveness of sins / Spirit – guide and teach

7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

 

8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

 

9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

 

10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

 

11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

 

12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

 

Assembling

 

 

Assembling

 

 

 

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

 

17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

 

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

 

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

 

20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

 

21 And having an high priest over the house of God;

 

22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

 

23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

 

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

 

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

 

 

 

 

 

Mutual Exhortation

 

14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

 

15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

 

16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

 

17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

 

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.

 

19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

 

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

 

21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

 

22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

 

 

 

 

 

Draw Near to Him

 

 

Draw Near to Him

 

 

 

 

 

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

 

17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

 

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

 

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

 

20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

 

21 And having an high priest over the house of God;

 

22 Let usdraw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

 

23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

 

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

 

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

 

21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

 

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

 

 

 

16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

 

17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

 

18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

 

 

 

20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

 

21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

 

22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

 

 

 

46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

 

47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:

 

48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

 

 

 

22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

 

23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

 

24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

 

 

 

25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

 

26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

 

27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

 

 

 

15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

 

16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

 

17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

 

 

 

39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

 

40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

 

41 I receive not honour from men.

 

 

 

 

 

36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

 

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

 

38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

 

 

 

43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.

 

44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
