Two Commandments Summed Up Into Ten

And God spake all these words, saying, "I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in …

Cloud By Day, Fire By Night

From today's scheduled reading of the Scriptures... And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, "Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:" But …

…A good work in you…

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus …

…Put on the new man…

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 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: who being past feeling have given themselves …

Death Swallowed Up In Victory

Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and …

The Nations Shall Glorify The Lord For His Mercy

Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: and that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy; as it is written, "For this cause I will confess to Thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto Thy name." And …

The Truth and the Wrath of God

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." …

God Saves In Shipwreck

...And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into the which they were minded, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.  And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves unto the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoised …

The Most Convenient Time Is Now

And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, "When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter."  And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of …

The Son of God, The King of Israel

The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, "Follow Me."

When the Son of Man Comes

"...And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall …
