Acts 2:1-47

1 And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly a sound came out of heaven, as being borne along by a violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in different languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation of those under heaven. 6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because they were hearing each one speaking in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed and were marveling, saying to one another, "Behold, are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya toward Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs--we hear them speaking in our own tongues the mighty deeds of God." 12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, "What might this mean?" 13 Others were mocking and saying, "They are full of new wine." 14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and spoke out to them, "Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. 15 "For these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is just the third hour of the day. 16 "But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 "And it shall be in the last days", says God, "that I will pour from My Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy; and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;" 18 "And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. 19 And I will give wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun shall be changed into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome Day of the Lord. 21 And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." 22 "Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves also know-- 23 Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you took, and by lawless hands, nailing Him to a cross, you killed Him; 24 whom God raised, thus doing away with the labor pains of death, because it was not possible for Him to be held by it. 25 For David says concerning Him, "I foresaw the Lord always before Me, because He is at My right hand, that I may not be shaken. 26 Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; moreover my flesh also will dwell in hope. 27 Because You will not abandon my soul in Hades, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. 28 You have made known to me the ways of life; You will fill me full of joy in Your presence." 29 "Men, brothers, let me speak with boldness to you about the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 "Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to seat Him on his throne, 31 foreseeing this, he spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, "that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption." 32 "This Jesus God has raised up, of which we all are witnesses." 33 "Therefore having being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear. 34 "For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: 'The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, 35 Till I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet." 36 "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ." 37 Now having heard this, they were cut to the heart, and they said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brothers, what shall we do?" 38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 "For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call." 40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Be saved from this crooked generation." 41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added. 42 And they were continuing in the teaching of the apostles, and in fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every person, and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and they had all things in common, 45 and they were selling their possessions and goods, and were dividing them among all, to the degree that anyone had a need. 46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were sharing food with joy and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to the church daily those who were being saved.

2 Corinthians 4:17

17 For our momentary light affliction is working out for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came to be through Him, and without Him nothing came to be which 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 apprehend it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a testimony, so that he might testify concerning the Light, so that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent so that he might testify concerning the Light. 9 That was the true Light which lightens every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world came to be through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, He gave them the authority to become children of God, to those who believe in His name; 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John testified concerning Him and has cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me, has come to be before me, because He was before me.' " 16 And out of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came to be through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, He who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. 19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem so that they might ask him, "Who are you?" 20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Messiah." 21 And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" And he answered, "No." 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" 23 He said: "I am 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Make straight the way of the LORD," ' just as Isaiah the prophet said." 24 Now those who had been sent were from the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, saying, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?" 26 John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. 27 He is the One who comes after me, who has come to be before me, of whom I am not worthy that I should loose the strap of His sandal." 28 These things happened in Bethany, beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is the One about whom I said, 'After me comes a Man who ranks before me, because He was before me.' 31 "I did not know Him; but that He should be made manifest to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water." 32 And John testified, saying, "I have beheld the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'Upon whom you see the Spirit descending and abiding on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' 34 "And I have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God." 35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He was walking, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" 37 The two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned and observed them following, and said to them, "What are you seeking?" They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which is translated, Teacher), "where are You staying?" 39 He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where He was staying, and they stayed with Him that day. It was about the tenth hour. 40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ). 42 And he led him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, "You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas" (which is translated, A Stone). 43 On the next day He wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, "Follow Me." 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found the One about whom Moses wrote in the Law, and the Prophets--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." 46 And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said about him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!" 48 Nathanael said to Him, "From where do You know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, while you were under the fig tree, I saw you." 49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!" 50 Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you, 'I saw you under the fig tree,' do you believe? You will see greater things than these." 51 And He said to him, "Most assuredly I say to you, from now on you shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."

2 Timothy 2:15

15 Be diligent to show yourself approved unto God, a worker unashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Ezekiel 37:1-10

1 And the hand of the Lord came upon me, and the Lord brought me forth by the Spirit, and set me in the midst of the plain, and it was full of human bones. 2 And He led me round about them every way. And behold, there were very many on the face of the plain, and very dry. 3 And He said to me, Son of man, will these bones live? And I said, O Lord God, only You know this! 4 And He said to me, Prophesy upon these bones, and you shall say to them, You dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. 5 Thus says the Lord to these bones: Behold, I will bring upon you the breath of life; 6 and I will lay sinews upon you, and I will bring up flesh upon you, and spread skin upon you, and I will put My Spirit into you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord. 7 So I prophesied as the Lord commanded me. And it came to pass while I was prophesying, that behold, there was a rattling, and the bones approached each one to his joint. 8 And I looked, and behold, sinews and flesh grew upon them, and skin came upon them above. But there was not breath in them. 9 And He said to me, Prophesy to the wind; prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus says the Lord: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these dead, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath entered into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, a very great congregation.

John 1:14

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

Ezekiel 12:25

25 For I the Lord will speak My words; I will speak and perform them, and will delay no more, for in your days, O provoking house, I will speak the word, and will perform it, says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 1:28

28 And the base things of the world, and the things having been despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, in order that He might nullify the things which are,

Hebrews 11:1-10

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained witness. 3 By faith we understand that time itself was framed by a word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. 4 By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying concerning his gifts; and through it, although he died, he still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was translated so as not to see death, "and he was not found, because God translated him"; for before his translation he had obtained witness that he was pleasing to God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please God, for it is necessary for the one approaching God to believe that He is, and that He becomes a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 7 By faith Noah, having being warned By God concerning the things not yet seen, being reverent, prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, through which he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. 8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go forth to the place which he was about to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. 9 By faith he migrated into a land of promise as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the fellow heirs of the same promise; 10 for he waited for the city having foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Romans 10:17

17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Joshua 1:8

8 And the Book of this Law shall not depart from your mouth, and you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may know how to do all the things that are written in it; then shall you prosper, and make your ways prosperous, and then shall you be wise.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 But the earth was unsightly and unfurnished, and darkness was over the deep, and the Spirit of God moved over the water. 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 between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night, and there was evening and there was morning, the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water, and let it be a division between water and water, and it was so. 7 And God made the firmament, and God divided between the water which was under the firmament and the water which was above the firmament. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven, and God saw that it was good, and there was evening and there was morning, the second day. 9 And God said, Let the water which is under the heaven be collected into one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so. And the water which was under the heaven was collected into its places, and the dry land appeared. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering of the waters He called Seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the herb of grass bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth, and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth the herb of grass-bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth; and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, to divide between day and night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years. 15 And let them be for light in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth, and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights, the greater light for regulating the day, and the lesser light for regulating the night; the stars also. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth, 18 and to regulate day and night, and to divide between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth reptiles having life, and winged creatures flying above the earth in the firmament of heaven, and it was so. 21 And God made great whales, and every living reptile, which the waters brought forth according to their kinds, and every creature that flies with wings according to its kind; and God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let the creatures that fly be multiplied on the earth. 23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind, cattle and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and it was so. 25 And God made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to their kind, and God saw that they were good. 26 And God said, Let Us make man according to Our image and likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the flying creatures of heaven, and over the cattle and all the earth, and over all the reptiles that creep on the earth. 27 And God made man, according to the image of God He made him, male and female He made them. 28 And God blessed them, saying, Increase and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the seas and flying creatures of heaven, and all the cattle and all the earth, and all the reptiles that creep on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given to you every seed-bearing herb sowing seed which is upon all the earth, and every tree which has in itself the fruit of seed that is sown, to you it shall be for food. 30 And to all the wild beasts of the earth, and to all the flying creatures of heaven, and to every reptile creeping on the earth, which has in itself the breath of life, even every green plant for food; and it was so. 31 And God saw all the things that He had made, and behold, they were very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day

Romans 4:17

17 (just as it is written, "I have appointed you a father of many nations") before God, whom he believed, the One who gives life to the dead and calls those things which are not as though they were;

Matthew 12:34-36

34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of his good treasure brings forth good things, and an evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you, that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.

2 Corinthians 4:18

18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are for a season, but the things which are not seen last forever.

Isaiah 55:11

11 so shall My word be, whatever shall proceed out of My mouth, it shall by no means return to Me void, until all the things which I willed have been accomplished; and I will make your ways prosperous, and will effect My commands.

Matthew 21:22

22 And all things, as many as you may ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive."

Proverbs 18:21

21 Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and they that rule it shall eat the fruits thereof.

Mark 11:22-24

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that the things which he says are coming to pass, what ever he says shall be his. 24 For this reason I say to you, all things whatsoever you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive them, and they will be yours.
