True God giving His Word for getting wisdom

 

 

Psalm 19:1 The heavens are declaring the glory of God;+ The skies above* proclaim the work of his hands.+

Exodus 20: 1-3: 1 Then God spoke all these words:+ 2 “I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.+ You must not have any other gods besides me.*+

Isaiah 7: 7: “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: “It will not succeed, Nor will it take place.

Jeremiah 1: 9:Then Jehovah stretched out his hand and touched my mouth.+ And Jehovah said to me: “I have put my words in your mouth.+

John 14: 10: 10 Do you not believe that I am in union with the Father and the Father is in union with me?+ The things I say to you I do not speak of my own originality,+ but the Father who remains in union with me is doing his works.

Ephesians 6: 17: 17 Also, accept the helmet of salvation,+ and the sword of the spirit, that is, God’s word,+

Exodus 3: He went on to say: “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham,+ the God of Isaac,+ and the God of Jacob.”+ Then Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at the true God.

1 John 5:20: 20 But we know that the Son of God has come,+ and he has given us insight* so that we may gain the knowledge of the one who is true. And we are in union with the one who is true,+ by means of his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and life everlasting.+

Revelation 4:11“You are worthy, Jehovah* our God, to receive the glory+ and the honor+ and the power,+ because you created all things,+ and because of your will they came into existence and were created.”

Exodus 6: Then God said to Moses: “I am Jehovah. And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty,+ but with regard to my name Jehovah+ I did not make myself known to them.+

Job 22:13-14: 13 But you have said: ‘What does God really know? Can he judge through thick gloom?14 Clouds screen him off so that he does not see As he walks about on the vault* of heaven.’

Nehemiah 9: 5-6: And the Levites Jeshʹu·a, Kadʹmi·el, Baʹni, Hash·ab·neiʹah, She·re·biʹah, Ho·diʹah, Sheb·a·niʹah, and Peth·a·hiʹah said: “Stand up and praise Jehovah your God throughout all eternity.*+ And let them praise your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise.

Psalms 50: 7-17: “Listen, O my people, and I will speak;Israel, I will bear witness against you.+ I am God, your God.+ I do not reprove you because of your sacrifices, Nor because of your whole burnt offerings that are constantly before me.+ I do not need to take a bull from your house,Nor goats* from your pens.+10 For every wild animal of the forest is mine,+ Even the beasts upon a thousand mountains. 11 I know every bird of the mountains;+ The countless animals of the field are mine. 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you, For the productive land and everything in it is mine.+ 13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls And drink the blood of goats?+ 14 Offer thanksgiving as your sacrifice to God,+ And pay your vows to the Most High;+ 15 Call on me in the time of distress.+ I will rescue you, and you will glorify me.”+ 16 But God will say to the wicked: “What right do you have to relate my regulations+ Or to speak about my covenant?+ 17 For you hate discipline,* And you keep turning your back on my words.*+

Ephesians 4:11-1411 And he gave some as apostles,+ some as prophets,+ some as evangelizers,*+ some as shepherds and teachers,+ 12 with a view to the readjustment* of the holy ones, for ministerial work, to build up the body of the Christ,+ 13 until we all attain to the oneness* of the faith and of the accurate knowledge of the Son of God, to being a full-grown* man,+ attaining the measure of stature that belongs to the fullness of the Christ. 14 So we should no longer be children, tossed about as by waves and carried here and there by every wind of teaching+ by means of the trickery of men, by means of cunning in deceptive schemes.

1 Corinthians 2: 1,9-10, 14-16: 1 So when I came to you, brothers, I did not come with extravagant speech+ or wisdom declaring the sacred secret+ of God to you. But just as it is written: “Eye has not seen and ear has not heard, nor have there been conceived in the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”+ 10 For it is to us God has revealed them+ through his spirit,+ for the spirit searches into all things, even the deep things of God.+

14 But a physical man does not accept* the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot get to know them, because they are examined spiritually. 15 However, the spiritual man examines all things,+ but he himself is not examined by any man. 16 For “who has come to know the mind of Jehovah,* so that he may instruct him?”+ But we do have the mind of Christ.+

Isaiah 40:13: 13 Who has taken the measurements of* the spirit of Jehovah, And who can instruct him as his adviser?+

Ephesians 3:5, 6: In other generations this secret was not made known to the sons of men as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by spirit,+ namely, that people of the nations should, in union with Christ Jesus and through the good news, be joint heirs and fellow members of the body+ and partakers with us of the promise.

Colossians 2:2: This is so that their hearts may be comforted+ and that they may be harmoniously joined together in love+ and may have all the riches that result from the full assurance of their understanding, in order to gain an accurate knowledge of the sacred secret of God, namely, Christ.+

Proverbs 23: Do not speak in the ears of the stupid one,+ For he will despise the wisdom of your words.+

2 Samuel 23:2: The spirit of Jehovah spoke through me;+ His word was on my tongue.+

Acts 1:16: 16 “Men, brothers, it was necessary for the scripture to be fulfilled that the holy spirit spoke prophetically through David about Judas,+ who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus.+

Acts 28:25: 25 So because they disagreed with one another, they began to leave, and Paul made this one comment: “The holy spirit aptly spoke through Isaiah the prophet to your forefathers,

1 Peter 1:11: 11 They kept on investigating what particular time or what season the spirit within them was indicating concerning Christ+ as it testified beforehand about the sufferings meant for Christ+ and about the glory that would follow.

2 Peter 1:21:21 For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will,+ but men spoke from God as they were moved* by holy spirit.+

John 14:26: 26 But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you.+

2 Timothy 3: 16-17: 16 All Scripture is inspired of God+ and beneficial for teaching,+ for reproving, for setting things straight,* for disciplining in righteousness,+ 17 so that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.

1 Thessalonians 2: 13: 13 Indeed, that is why we also thank God unceasingly,+ because when you received God’s word, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but, just as it truthfully is, as the word of God, which is also at work in you believers.

Romans 15:4: For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction,+ so that through our endurance+ and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.+

1 Corinthians 10:11: 11 Now these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for a warning to us+ upon whom the ends of the systems of things have come.

Psalm 119:49, 50: 49 Remember your word* to your servant, Through which you give me hope.* 50 This is my comfort in my affliction,+ For your saying has preserved me alive.

Proverbs 4: 7-9: Wisdom is the most important* thing,+ so acquire wisdom, And with all you acquire, acquire understanding.Highly esteem it, and it will exalt you.+ It will honor you because you embrace it.+ It will place an attractive wreath on your head; It will adorn you with a crown of beauty.”

Proverbs 15:14: 14 The understanding heart seeks knowledge,+ But the mouth of the stupid feeds on* foolishness.+

Matthew 13:23: 23 As for the one sown upon the fine soil, this is the one hearing the word and getting the sense of it, who really does bear fruit and produces, this one 100 times more, that one 60, the other 30.”+

Hebrews 5:14: 14 But solid food belongs to mature people, to those who through use have their powers of discernment* trained to distinguish both right and wrong.

Daniel 1:17: 17 And the true God gave these four youths* knowledge and insight into every kind of writing and wisdom; and Daniel was given understanding in all sorts of visions and dreams.+

Proverbs 21: 30 There is no wisdom, nor discernment, nor counsel in opposition to Jehovah.+

Proverbs 19: 21 Many are the plans in a man’s heart, But the counsel* of Jehovah is what will prevail.+

2 Timothy 2: 7-10: Give constant thought to what I am saying; the Lord will give you understanding* in all things. Remember that Jesus Christ was raised up from the dead+ and was David’s offspring,*+ according to the good news I preach,+ for which I am suffering and being imprisoned as a criminal.+ Nevertheless, the word of God is not bound.+ 10 For this reason I go on enduring all things for the sake of the chosen ones,+ so that they too may obtain the salvation that is through Christ Jesus, along with everlasting glory. 

John 17: This means everlasting life,+ their coming to know you,* the only true God,+ and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.+

1 John 5: 20 But we know that the Son of God has come,+ and he has given us insight* so that we may gain the knowledge of the one who is true. And we are in union with the one who is true,+ by means of his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and life everlasting.+

1 Timothy 2: 2-4: concerning kings and all those who are in high positions,*+ so that we may go on leading a calm and quiet life with complete godly devotion and seriousness.+ This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God,+ whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved+ and come to an accurate knowledge of truth.

Vrai Dieu donne Sa Parole pour obtenir la sagesse

 

 

Psaumes 19 :1 Les cieux proclament la gloire de Dieu*+ ; et l’œuvre de ses mains, l’étendue l’annonce+.

Exode 20: 1-3: 1 Alors Dieu prononça toutes ces paroles*, en disant+ : “ Je suis Jéhovah ton Dieu*+, qui t’ai fait sortir du pays d’Égypte, de la maison des esclaves+. Tu ne dois pas avoir d’autres dieux*+ contre ma face*.

 Isaïe 7 :7: “ ‘ Voici ce qu’a dit le Souverain Seigneur Jéhovah : “ Cela ne tiendra pas, cela n’aura pas lieu+.

Jérémie 19 Oui, je leur ferai manger la chair de leurs fils et la chair de leurs filles ; et ils mangeront chacun la chair de son semblable, par suite de la détresse et par suite de l’angoisse dont les enserreront leurs ennemis et ceux qui cherchent leur âme+. ” ’

Jean 14: 10: 10 Ne crois-tu pas que je suis en union avec le Père et que le Père est en union avec moi+ ? Les choses que je vous dis, je ne les dis pas en tirant [ce que j’annonce] de mon propre fonds* ; mais le Père qui demeure en union avec moi fait ses œuvres+.

Éphésiens 6: 17: 17 En outre, acceptez le casque+ du salut, et l’épée+ de l’esprit+, c’est-à-dire la parole de Dieu+,

Exode 3Puis il dit : “ Je suis le Dieu de ton père*, le Dieu d’Abraham, le Dieu d’Isaac et le Dieu de Jacob+. ” Alors Moïse se cacha le visage, car il avait peur de regarder le [vrai] Dieu*.

1 Jean 5 :2020 Mais nous savons que le Fils de Dieu est venu+ et qu’il nous a donné l’intelligence*+ pour que nous parvenions à connaître le véritable+. Et nous sommes en union+ avec le véritable, par le moyen de son Fils Jésus Christ. C’est là le vrai+ Dieu et la vie éternelle+.

Révélation 4 :11:11 “ Tu es digne, Jéhovah*, oui notre Dieu, de recevoir la gloire+ et l’honneur+ et la puissance+, parce que tu as créé toutes choses+, et à cause de ta volonté+ elles ont existé et ont été créées+. ”

Exode 6 :Dieu* parla encore à Moïse et lui dit : “ Je suis Jéhovah+.

Job 22:13-14:13 Et pourtant tu as dit : ‘ Qu’est-ce que Dieu* peut bien savoir ? Peut-il juger à travers l’obscurité épaisse ? 14 Les nuages sont pour lui une cachette, de sorte qu’il ne voit pas ; il marche sur la voûte du ciel. ’

Nehémia 9 : 5-6: Puis les Lévites Yéshoua, Qadmiel, Bani, Hashabnia, Shérébia, Hodia, Shebania [et] Pethahia dirent : “ Levez-vous, bénissez+ Jéhovah votre Dieu depuis des temps indéfinis [et] pour des temps indéfinis+. Et qu’ils bénissent ton nom glorieux+ qui est élevé au-dessus de toute bénédiction et louange. “ Tu es Jéhovah, toi seul+ ; c’est toi qui as fait les cieux+, [oui] le ciel des cieux, et toute leur armée+, la terre+ et tout ce qui est sur elle+, les mers+ et tout ce qui s’y trouve+ ; et tu les gardes tous en vie ; et l’armée+ des cieux se prosterne devant toi.

Psaumes 50: 7-17:  “ Écoute, ô mon peuple, je veux parler+ ; ô Israël, je veux témoigner contre toi*+. Je suis Dieu, ton Dieu+ Ce n’est pas pour tes sacrifices que je te reprends+ ni [pour] tes holocaustes [qui sont] devant moi constamment+ Je ne veux pas prendre de ta maison un taureau+ ni de tes enclos des boucs. 10 Car tous les animaux sauvages de la forêt m’appartiennent+, les bêtes sur mille montagnes+. 11 Je connais bien toutes les créatures ailées des montagnes+, et avec moi sont les foules d’animaux de la campagne+. 12 Si j’avais faim, je ne te le dirais pas ; car il m’appartient, le sol productif*+ et sa plénitude+. 13 Vais-je manger la chair des puissants [taureaux]+,et le sang des boucs, vais-je le boire+ ? 14 Offre à Dieu, pour ton sacrifice, l’action de grâces+, et acquitte-toi de tes vœux envers le Très-Haut+ ; 15 et appelle-moi au jour de la détresse+. Je te délivrerai et tu me glorifieras+. ” 16 Mais au méchant Dieu devra dire+ : “ De quel droit énumères-tu mes prescriptions+ et portes-tu mon alliance* dans ta bouche+ ? 17 En effet, toi, tu as haï la discipline+, et sans cesse tu jettes mes paroles derrière toi+.

Éphésiens 4:1111 Et il a donné certains comme apôtres+, certains comme prophètes+, certains comme évangélisateurs*+, certains comme bergers et enseignants+,

1 Corinthiens 2: 1,9-10, 14-16: Moi donc, quand je suis venu chez vous, frères, je ne suis pas venu avec outrance* de langage+ ou de sagesse vous annoncer le saint secret+ de Dieu. Mais comme c’est écrit : “ L’œil ne les a pas vues, et l’oreille ne les a pas entendues, et elles n’ont pas été conçues dans le cœur de l’homme, les choses que Dieu a préparées pour ceux qui l’aiment+. ” 10 Car c’est à nous que Dieu les a révélées+ grâce à son esprit+, car l’esprit+ scrute toutes choses, même les choses profondes+ de Dieu.14 Mais l’homme physique* ne reçoit pas les choses de l’esprit de Dieu, car elles sont une sottise pour lui ; et il ne peut pas parvenir à [les] connaître+, parce que c’est spirituellement qu’on les examine. 15 Cependant, l’homme spirituel*+ examine réellement toutes choses, mais lui-même n’est examiné+ par personne. 16 Car “ qui est parvenu à connaître la pensée de Jéhovah*+, pour l’instruire+ ” ? Mais nous, nous avons la pensée+ de Christ*.

Isaïe 40 :13: 13 Qui a pris les dimensions de l’esprit de Jéhovah, et qui, étant son homme de conseil, peut lui faire connaître quelque chose+ ?

Éphésiens 3:5, 6:Dans d’autres générations, ce [secret]+ n’a pas été porté à la connaissance des fils des hommes comme il a été révélé maintenant+ à ses saints apôtres et prophètes+ par [l’]esprit, à savoir que des gens des nations devaient être cohéritiers et comembres du corps+ et avoir part avec nous à la promesse*+ en union avec Christ Jésus par le moyen de la bonne nouvelle.

Colossiens 2:2afin que leur cœur soit consolé+ [et] qu’ils soient harmonieusement unis ensemble dans l’amour+ et pour toute la richesse de la pleine certitude de [leur] intelligence+, pour une connaissance exacte du saint secret de Dieu, c’est-à-dire Christ*+.

Proverbes 23: Ne parle pas aux oreilles d’un homme stupide+, car il méprisera tes paroles avisées+.

2 Samuel 23:2: C’est l’esprit de Jéhovah qui a parlé par moi+, et sa parole* a été sur ma langue+.

Actes 1:1616 “ Hommes, frères, il fallait que s’accomplisse [cette parole de] l’Écriture+, que l’esprit saint+ avait dite d’avance par la bouche de David au sujet de Judas+, qui est devenu le guide de ceux qui ont arrêté Jésus+,

Actes 28:25:25 Et comme ils étaient en désaccord les uns avec les autres, ils s’en allaient, tandis que Paul faisait cette seule observation: “ C’est avec raison que l’esprit saint a parlé à vos ancêtres par l’intermédiaire d’Isaïe le prophète,

1 Pierre 1 :11: 11 Ils s’efforçaient de découvrir* quelle époque particulière+ ou quelle sorte d’[époque] indiquait, au sujet de Christ+, l’esprit+ qui était en eux*, quand il attestait d’avance les souffrances [réservées] à Christ+ et les gloires+ qui devaient suivre celles-ci.

2 Pierre 1:21:21 Car la prophétie n’a jamais été apportée par la volonté de l’homme+, mais des hommes ont parlé de la part de Dieu+, comme ils étaient portés par [l’]esprit saint+.

Jean 14:2626 Mais l’assistant*, l’esprit saint, que le Père enverra en mon nom, celui-là* vous enseignera toutes choses et vous rappellera toutes les choses que je vous ai dites+.

2 Timothée 3: 16 Toute Écriture est inspirée de Dieu*+ et utile pour enseigner+, pour reprendre+, pour remettre les choses en ordre*+, pour discipliner+ dans la justice, 17 pour que l’homme de Dieu soit pleinement qualifié+, parfaitement équipé* pour toute œuvre bonne+.

1 Thessaloniciens 2: 13: 13 Oui, voilà pourquoi, nous aussi, nous remercions Dieu constamment+, parce que, quand vous avez reçu la parole de Dieu+ que vous entendiez de nous, vous l’avez acceptée, non comme la parole des hommes+, mais, ainsi qu’elle l’est véritablement, comme la parole de Dieu, laquelle* est aussi à l’œuvre en vous, les croyants+.

Romains 15:4 Car toutes les choses qui ont été écrites jadis ont été écrites+ pour notre instruction+, afin que, grâce à notre endurance+ et à la consolation+ des Écritures, nous ayons l’espérance*+.

1 Corinthiens 10 :1111 Or ces choses leur arrivaient comme exemples*, et elles ont été écrites pour nous avertir+, nous sur qui les fins* des systèmes de choses*+ sont arrivées.

Psaumes 119:49, 50: 49 Souviens-toi de la parole à ton serviteur+, celle que tu m’as fait attendre+ 50 C’est là ma consolation dans mon affliction+, car ta parole m’a gardé en vie+.

Proverbes 4: 7-9: La sagesse est la chose principale+. Acquiers la sagesse ; et avec tout ce que tu acquiers, acquiers l’intelligence+. Tiens-la en haute estime, et elle t’élèvera+. Elle te glorifiera parce que tu l’étreins+. Elle donnera à ta tête une guirlande de charme+ ; elle te fera don d’une couronne de beauté+. ”

Proverbes 15 :14: 14 Le cœur intelligent recherche la connaissance+, mais la bouche des stupides aspire à la sottise+.

Matthieu 13:23: 23 Quant à celui qui a été semé sur la belle terre, c’est celui qui entend la parole et en saisit le sens, qui porte alors du fruit et produit celui-ci cent fois autant, celui-là soixante, l’autre trente+. ”

Hébreux 5 :1414 Mais la nourriture solide est pour les hommes mûrs, pour ceux qui, par l’usage, ont les facultés de perception*+ exercées* à distinguer et le bien et le mal+.

Daniel 1:17: 17 Quant à ces enfants, les quatre, à eux le [vrai] Dieu donna connaissance et perspicacité en toute écriture et sagesse+ ; et Daniel avait de l’intelligence en toutes sortes de visions et de rêves+.

Proverbs 21: 30 Il n’y a ni sagesse, ni discernement, ni conseil en opposition avec Jéhovah+.

Proverbs 19: 21 Nombreux sont les plans dans le cœur de l’homme*+, mais c’est le conseil de Jéhovah qui tiendra+.

2 Timothée 2: 7-10: Pense constamment* à ce que je dis ; le Seigneur, en effet, te donnera du discernement+ en toutes choses. Rappelle-toi que Jésus Christ a été relevé d’entre les morts+ et qu’il était de la semence de David+, selon la bonne nouvelle que je prêche+ ; à propos de laquelle je supporte le mal jusqu’à [porter] des liens+ comme un malfaiteur. Toutefois, la parole de Dieu n’est pas liée+. 10 Voilà pourquoi je continue à endurer toutes choses à cause de ceux qui ont été choisis+, pour qu’eux aussi obtiennent le salut qui est dans l’union avec Christ Jésus, avec la gloire éternelle+.

Jean 17 : Ceci signifie la vie éternelle+ : qu’ils apprennent à te connaître*+, toi, le seul vrai Dieu+, et celui que tu as envoyé, Jésus Christ+.

1 Jean 520 Mais nous savons que le Fils de Dieu est venu+ et qu’il nous a donné l’intelligence*+ pour que nous parvenions à connaître le véritable+. Et nous sommes en union+ avec le véritable, par le moyen de son Fils Jésus Christ. C’est là le vrai+ Dieu et la vie éternelle+.

1 Timothée 2: 2-4: à propos de rois+ et de tous ceux qui sont haut placés+ ; afin que nous puissions continuer à mener une vie calme et paisible dans un parfait attachement à Dieu* et [en toute] dignité+. Cela est beau et agréable+ aux yeux de notre Sauveur, Dieu+, qui veut que toutes sortes d’hommes+ soient sauvés+ et parviennent à une connaissance exacte+ de la vérité+.

Excerpt from the book The image of God, or lai...

Excerpt from the book The image of God, or laie mans boke in which the right knowledge of God is disclosed, and diuerse doubtes besides the principal matter written by Roger Hutchinson at 1550 (available in John Bruce’s The works of Roger Hutchinson (1842, pp. 183, 183) at archive.org), using God’s Biblical name Jehovah (Jehova/Iehova/Iehoua).

were written:  (#Ro 4:23): 23 That “it was counted+ to him” was written, however, not for his sake only,+

(#1Co 10:11): 11 Now these things went on befalling them as examples,* and they were written for a warning+ to us upon whom the ends* of the systems of things*+ have arrived.

for our instruction:  (#2Ti 3:16): 16 All Scripture is inspired of God*+ and beneficial for teaching,+ for reproving,+ for setting things straight,*+ for disciplining+ in righteousness,

(#2Pe 1:19): 19 Consequently we have the prophetic word+ [made] more sure;+ and YOU are doing well in paying attention to it as to a lamp+ shining in a dark place, until day dawns and a daystar*+ rises, in YOUR hearts.

(#Pr 3:11-12): 11 The discipline of Jehovah, O my son, do not reject;+ and do not abhor his reproof,+ 12 because the one whom Jehovah loves he reproves,+ even as a father does a son in whom he finds pleasure.+

(#Joh 16:8): 8 And when that one arrives he will give the world convincing evidence* concerning sin and concerning righteousness and concerning judgment:+

(#Tit 1:9): 9 holding firmly to the faithful word as respects his [art of] teaching,+ that he may be able both to exhort by the teaching that is healthful+ and to reprove+ those who contradict.

(#1Co 11:32): 32 However, when we are judged,+ we are disciplined by Jehovah,*+ that we may not become condemned+ with the world.+

(#He 12:6): 6 for whom Jehovah* loves he disciplines; in fact, he scourges every one whom he receives as a son.”+

(#Re 3:19): 19 “‘All those for whom I have affection I reprove and discipline.+ Therefore be zealous and repent.+

(#He 12:5): 5 but YOU have entirely forgotten the exhortation which addresses YOU as sons:+ “My son, do not belittle [the] discipline from Jehovah,* neither give out when you are corrected* by him;+

(#Ps 94:12): 12 Happy is the able-bodied man* whom you correct,+ O Jah, And whom you teach out of your own law,+

(#Ps 119:71):  71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted,+ In order that I may learn your regulations.+

(#1Ti 4:16): 16 Pay constant attention to yourself+ and to your teaching.+ Stay by these things, for by doing this you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.+

(#1Ti 6:3): 3 If any man teaches other doctrine+ and does not assent to healthful+ words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, nor to the teaching that accords with godly devotion,*+

(#Jas 3:1): 3 Not many of YOU should become teachers,+ my brothers, knowing that we shall receive heavier judgment.+

througour endurance:  (#Ro 5:4): 4 endurance, in turn, an approved condition;+ the approved condition, in turn, hope,+

(#Php 1:20): 20 in harmony with my eager expectation+ and hope+ that I shall not be ashamed+ in any respect, but that in all freeness of speech+ Christ will, as always before, so now be magnified by means of my body,+ whether through life or through death.+

(#2Ti 2:15): 15 Do your utmost to present yourself approved+ to God, a workman+ with nothing to be ashamed of,+ handling the word of the truth aright.+

(#Jas 1:12): 12 Happy is the man that keeps on enduring trial,+ because on becoming approved he will receive the crown of life,+ which Jehovah* promised to those who continue loving him.+

through the comfort:  (#Ps 119:50):  50 This is my comfort in my affliction,+ For your own saying has preserved me alive.+

(#Ps 94:19): 19 When my disquieting thoughts became many inside of me,+ Your own consolations began to fondle my soul.+

(#Ps 71:21): 21 May you enlarge my greatness,+ And may you surround [and] comfort me.+

(#Ps 86:17): 17 Work out with me a sign meaning goodness, That those hating me may see [it] and be ashamed.+ For you yourself, O Jehovah, have helped me and comforted me.+

(#2Co 1:3-4):  3 Blessed be the God and Father+ of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies+ and the God of all comfort,+ 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation,+ that we may be able to comfort+ those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God.+

(#Ps 23:4):  4 Even though I walk in the valley of deep shadow,*+ I fear nothing bad,+ For you are with me;+ Your rod and your staff are the things that comfort me.+

(#2Co 7:6): 6 Nevertheless God, who comforts+ those laid low, comforted us by the presence* of Titus;

Those written things include many good examples, men and women of outstanding faith. (Hebrews 11:32-34) We can and should benefit from the good examples found in the Scriptures, following or imitating what is presented in those fine Biblical accounts. Certain~~ Bible accounts, however, include warning examples. We can find some of those in the lives of men and women whom Jehovah at one point accepted and used as his servants. As we read the Bible, we can note where and how some of God’s people went astray and thus became warning examples. We can discern that some gradually developed wrong attitudes or tendencies, which eventually produced sad consequences.
How can we draw lessons from such accounts? We may want to ask ourselves such questions as: ‘How did that develop? Might such a trend develop in my case? What can I do to avoid that and instead to benefit from this warning example?’ w11 12/15 1:19, 20

Absalom, a son of King David, was an exceptionally good-looking man. In time, however, like Satan, he let greedy ambition fill his heart, for he began to covet his father’s throne, to which he was not entitled. In a sly attempt to seize the kingship, Absalom feigned deep concern for his fellow Israelites while cleverly insinuating that the king’s court lacked regard for them. Yes, just like the Devil in the garden of Eden, Absalom presented himself as a benefactor, at the same time cruelly maligning his own father. (2 Samuel 15:1-5)
Did Absalom’s clever scheme succeed? To some extent, yes, for the Bible account states: “Absalom kept stealing the hearts of the men of Israel.” (2 Samuel 15:6) In the end, though, Absalom’s arrogance led to his own downfall, his death, and the death of the thousands who were overreached by him.—2 Samuel 18:7, 14-17. w12 7/15 2:4-6

  • Chapter 37- Sanctification (reformedontheweb.wordpress.com)
    The usage of Scripture is as clear in this case as in that. The word “holy” in Scripture has, however, various meanings. It is sometimes applied to things, and not to persons only. (1.) It is used in the sense of that which is set apart or dedicated to an especial use. Thus, God threatens that instruments of vengeance will be “prepared” (sanctified) against “the king’s house of Judah,” Jer. 22:7. But the dedication is most frequently for some holy use.

    The difficulty of the work to be done consists in its not being a mere reformation of a bad life and habits, which is measurably within the power of man, and is sometimes accomplished so far as the mere outward life among men demands; but in its including the destruction and removal of man’s sinful condition, and habits, and action, which he by nature ardently loves, and the substitution for them of their very opposites in every respect.
  • Step 8 Remember God Disciplines Those He Loves (shareaverse.wordpress.com)
    God is vigilant in maintaining and guarding His children.  He is intolerant of unfaithfulness or rivalry and possessive and watchful in the protection of His chosen ones.  He demands exclusive loyalty and is ardently active, devoted, diligent and filled with intense enthusiasm, fervor and passion to the point of intense, burning heat when it comes to ensuring our knowledge of His love, grace, and plan for us.
  • Michael Brown Writes Open Letter to Joel and Victoria Osteen Out of Love for God, Love for Them, and Love for the Church and the World (blackchristiannews.com)
    A true physician tells his patients what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. As one preacher of old, JeanDaille, once said, “Ministers are not cooks, but physicians andtherefore should not study to delight the palate, but to recover the patient.”Have you been more of a junk-food cook than a physician? Have you been afraid to tell people their true condition? Have you been so concerned with making them feel good about themselves and giving them a sense of hope that you failed to diagnose their terminal sin disease?
  • Default To Righteousness (dayandnightpost.com)
    The church is fast approaching a default to abundance and a default to righteousness; although most – in the church – are not aware of it. Neither were the Children of Israel aware of the hour of their deliverance from Egypt.
  • Discernment (endtimesprophecyreport.wordpress.com)
    The state of the “church” was made abundantly clear to me this week while I made a strong effort to defend the Word of God from the attack of a false believer.
    +
    The lack of discernment is listed as a sin that accompanies rebellious sinners in Romans chapter one.  I want to quote from both the KJV and NKJV to give a good rendering of the word used and to show that God indeed does call lack of discernment sin.
  • Trusting, Faith, Calling and Ascribing to Jehovah #18 Fulfilment (christadelphians.wordpress.com)
    Fulfilment As we showed in the previous chapters several men of God knew their position very well and where convinced they needed the Most High Creator of all things. Even the son of God never claimed to be able to do something without the Force of his Father.
  • Rose Resource Review: 10 Questions and Answers on Jehovah’s Witnesses (allthyngs.wordpress.com)
    There are also books with stories of how JW’s came to truly know Christ and had their eyes opened to the truth of the Biblical Gospel through the grace and patience of real Jesus followers.
  • Christian Statements of Faith (linsec.ca)
    To begin to understand the origin of Christianity, you need to understand the orthodoxy of Christianity (the theories, doctrines, and practices that defined Christianity in the early church and are the pillars of Christian theology today). These statements or creeds are inviolate — they are the foundations of Christianity and without them you may have something that resembles Christianity, but really isn’t Christianity. There are two statements of faith that define Christianity: the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.
  • Pictures: They came, saw and made Zim richer (newsday.co.zw)
    The bumper crowd that converged at the NSS in Harare for all the three days was historic and about 1 568 candidates out of at least 74 000 in attendance, that Saturday, were baptized symbolizing their dedication to serving their Heavenly Father –Jehovah God. Attendance on the first day, on Friday was over 68 000 while the last day, on Sunday attendance totaled 82 409 people.
