Matthew 28:20

20 teaching them to observe all things, as many as I commanded you. And lo, I am with you all the days, until the end of the age. Truly.

Acts 2:1-47

1 And while fulfilling the day of Pentecost, they were all together at the same place. 2 And suddenly there developed a sound from the sky as of a forceful wind moving, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them dividing tongues, as of fire, and they settled upon each one of them. 4 And they were all filled of Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them to declare. 5 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem, Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6 And the sound of this that happened brought the multitude together. And it was bewildered because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7 And they were amazed and marveled, saying to each other, Behold, are not all these men who speak Galileans? 8 And how do we each hear our own language in which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and those dwelling in Mesopotamia, and Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 and Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya along Cyrene, and those Roman aliens, including Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians. We hear them speaking in our tongues the great things of God. 12 And they were all amazed, and were perplexed, others saying to others, Whatever does this intend to be? 13 But others, mocking said, They are filled of wine. 14 But Peter having stood up with the eleven, raised his voice and spoke out to them, saying, Jewish men, and all who dwell at Jerusalem, be this known to you, and listen to my sayings. 15 For these men are not drunken, as ye suppose, for it is the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which was spoken through the prophet Joel: 17 And it will be in the last days, says God, I will pour out from my Spirit upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your elders will dream dreams. 18 And also on my bondmen and on my bondmaids in those days I will pour out from my Spirit, and they will prophesy. 19 And I will give wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun will be changed into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and wonderful day of Lord comes. 21 And it will be, that every man, whoever may call on the name of Lord will be saved. 22 Men, Israelites, hear ye these words. Jesus the Nazarene, a man shown by God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know, 23 this man, having been designated (by the purpose and foreknowledge of God) a man delivered up, ye, having taken by lawless hands, killed, having crucified, 24 whom God raised up, having loosed the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it. 25 For David speaks for him: I beheld the Lord always before me, because he is at my right hand, so that I may not be moved. 26 Because of this my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad. And moreover my flesh will also rest in hope. 27 Because thou will not leave my soul in Hades, nor will thou give thy Holy man to see decay. 28 Thou made known to me the paths of life. Thou will fill me of joy with thy countenance. 29 Men, brothers, being permitted to speak to you with openness about the patriarch David, that he both perished and was buried, and his sepulcher is with us to this day. 30 Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, to raise the Christ from the fruit of his loins according to flesh to sit upon his throne. 31 Having foreseen this, he spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that his soul was not left behind in Hades, nor did his flesh see decay. 32 This Jesus, God raised up, of which we are all witnesses. 33 Therefore, exalted by the right hand of God, and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, he poured out this that ye now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself says, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand 35 until I place thine enemies a footstool of thy feet. 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God has made him, this Jesus whom ye crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37 Now having heard this, they were pierced in the heart, and said to Peter and the other apostles, Men, brothers, what will we do? 38 And Peter said to them, Repent ye, and be immersed each of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all those in afar, as many as Lord our God may call. 40 And with many more other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, Be saved from this crooked generation. 41 Indeed therefore those who received his word gladly, were immersed. And there were added in that day about three thousand souls. 42 And they were continuing steadfastly in the apostles doctrine, and in fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and the prayers. 43 And fear developed in every soul. And many wonders and signs occurred through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together, and had all things common. 45 And they sold properties and possessions, and divided them to all, according as any man had need. 46 And continuing steadfastly, daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they partook of nourishment in gladness and evenness of heart, 47 praising God, and having favor with the whole populace. And the Lord was adding to the church daily those being saved.

2 Corinthians 4:17

17 For our slight momentary affliction works for us an eternal weight of glory from extraordinariness to extraordinariness,

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 This man was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came to be through him, and apart from him not even one thing came to be that has come to be. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 6 A man came to be who was sent from God, his name was John. 7 This man came for testimony so that he might testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. 8 That man was not the light, but that he might testify about the light. 9 He was the TRUE light coming into the world that enlightens every man. 10 He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came to his own, and his own did not accept him. 12 But as many as did accept him, to them he gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, 13 who were begotten, not from blood, nor from a will of flesh, nor from a will of man, but from God. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us. And we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John testified about him, and cried out, saying, This was he of whom I said, He who comes after me came to be before me, because he was before me. 16 And from his fullness we all received, even grace for grace. 17 Because the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came to be through Jesus Christ. 18 No man has ever seen God. The only begotten Son, being in the bosom of the Father, that man reported him. 19 And this is the testimony of John when the Jews sent forth priests and Levites from Jerusalem so that they might ask him, Who are thou? 20 And he confessed, and did not deny, and confessed, I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What therefore, are thou Elijah? And he says, I am not. Are thou the prophet? And he answered, No. 22 They said therefore to him, Who are thou, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do thou say about thyself? 23 He said, I am the voice of a man crying out in the wilderness: Make straight the way of Lord, just as the prophet Isaiah said. 24 And those who were sent were from the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said to him, Why therefore do thou immerse if thou are not the Christ nor Elijah nor the prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, I immerse in water, but amidst you stands him whom ye know not. 27 He is the man who comes after me, who has become before me, of whom I am not worthy that I might loosen the strap of his shoe. 28 These things occurred in Bethany beyond the Jordan where John was immersing. 29 On the morrow John sees Jesus coming to him, and he says, Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is he about whom I said, After me comes a man who has become before me, because he was before me. 31 And I had not known him, but that he would be made known to Israel. Because of this I came immersing in water. 32 And John testified, saying, I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove out of heaven, and it remained upon him. 33 And I had not known him. But he who sent me to immerse in water, he said to me, Upon whomever thou will see the Spirit descending and remaining on him, this is he who immerses in Holy Spirit. 34 And I have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God. 35 Again on the morrow John stood, and two of his disciples. 36 And having looked upon Jesus walking, he says, Behold, the Lamb of God! 37 And the two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus having turned, and having seen them following, says to them, What seek ye? And they said to him, Rabbi (which says, being interpreted, Teacher), where do thou dwell? 39 He says to them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and remained with him that day. It was about the tenth hour. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard from John and who followed him. 41 This man first finds his own brother Simon, and says to him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being interpreted, Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. And having seen him, Jesus said, Thou are Simon the son of Jonah. Thou will be called Cephas (which is interpreted, Peter). 43 On the morrow he wanted to go forth into Galilee, and he finds Philip. And Jesus says to him, Follow me. 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip finds Nathanael, and says to him, We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets wrote: Jesus the son of Joseph of Nazareth. 46 And Nathanael said to him, What good can be from Nazareth? Philip says to him, Come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and says about him, Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit. 48 Nathanael says to him, How do thou know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called thee, being under the fig tree, I saw thee. 49 Nathanael answered, and says to him, Rabbi, thou are the Son of God. Thou are the king of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, thou believe? Thou will see greater than these things. 51 And he says to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, henceforth ye will see the heaven opened, and the agents of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Isaiah 26:3-4

3 Thou will keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee], because he trusts in thee. 4 Trust ye in LORD forever, for in LORD, [even] LORD, is an everlasting rock.

Psalms 82:6

6 I said, Ye are gods, and all of you sons of the Most High.

Mark 11:23

23 For truly I say to you, that whoever may say to this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea, and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that what he says comes to pass, whatever he may say will be for him.

John 14:6

6 Jesus says to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father, except by me.

John 1:1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 Timothy 2:15

15 Be diligent to present thyself approved to God, an irreproachable workman, correctly traversing the word of truth.

Ezekiel 37:1-10

1 The hand of LORD was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley, and it was full of bones. 2 And he caused me to pass by them round about. And, behold, there were very many in the open valley, and, lo, they were very dry. 3 And he said to me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O lord LORD, thou know. 4 Again he said to me, Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of LORD. 5 Thus says lord LORD to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live. 6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live. And ye shall know that I am LORD. 7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a noise, and, behold, an earthquake, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. 8 And I beheld, and, lo, there were sinews upon them, and flesh came up, and skin covered them above, but there was no breath in them. 9 Then he said to me, Prophesy to the wind. Prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus says lord LORD: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

John 1:14

14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us. And we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Ezekiel 12:25

25 For I am LORD. I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall be performed. It shall be no more deferred. For in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word, and will perform it, says lord LORD.

1 Corinthians 1:28

28 And God chose the common things of the world, and the disdained things, and the things that are not, so that he might make useless the things that are,

Hebrews 11:1-10

1 Now faith is the foundation of hoping, the evidence of events not being seen. 2 For by this the ancients were well reported. 3 By faith we understand the ages to have been prepared by the word of God. For the things that are seen do not come to be from that which is visible. 4 By faith Abel offered to God a better sacrifice than Cain, because of which he was reported to be righteous, God testifying about his gifts, and through it, he who died still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was transferred to not see death, and he was not found, because God transferred him. For before his removal he was reported to be pleasing to God. 6 And apart from faith it is impossible to please him. For he who comes to God must believe that he is, and becomes a rewarder of those who search for him. 7 By faith Noah, being divinely warned about things not yet seen, moved with awe, prepared an ark for the salvation of his house, through which he condemned the world, and became an heir of righteousness according to faith. 8 By faith Abraham, when called, obeyed to go out to the place that he was going to take for an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. 9 By faith he lived alien in the land of promise as a foreigner, having dwelt in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the fellow heirs of the same promise. 10 For he anticipated the city that has the foundations, whose builder and architect is God.

Romans 10:17

17 So faith is from hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Joshua 1:8

8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shall meditate on it day and night, that thou may observe to do according to all that is written in it, for then thou shall make thy way prosperous, and then thou sha

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light, and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good. And God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and he called the gathering together of the waters Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, [and] fruit trees bearing fruit according to their kind (in which is the seed of them) upon the earth. And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed according to their kind, and trees bearing fruit in which is the seed of it, according to their kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years. 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth. And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, also the stars. 17 And God set them in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created the great sea creatures, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth. 23 And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth according to their kind. And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image--after our likeness--and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that 27 And God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moves upo 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed. To you it shall be for food, 30 and to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the heavens, and to everything that creeps upon the earth in which there is life, for food--every green herb. And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Romans 4:17

17 (as it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations), before him whom he believed, of God who makes the dead alive, and who calls things not existing, as existing.

Matthew 12:34-36

34 Ye offspring of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good things, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you, that every idle word, whatever men may speak, they will render account about it in the day of judgment.

2 Corinthians 4:18

18 while we look not at things seen, but at things not seen. For things seen are temporal, but things not seen are eternal.

Isaiah 55:11

11 so shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth. It shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please. And it shall prosper in the thing to which I sent it.

Matthew 21:22

22 And all things, as many as ye may ask in prayer, believing, ye will receive.

22 And having answered, Jesus says to them, Have faith in God. 23 For truly I say to you, that whoever may say to this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea, and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that what he says comes to pass, whatever he may say will be for him. 24 Because of this I say to you, all things, as many as ye may ask, praying, believe that ye receive, and it will be for you.
