Acts 2:1-47

1 ¶ And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 ¶ (And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.) 6 Now at this sound, the multitude came together and were confounded because each one heard them speak in his own tongue. 7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these who speak Galilaeans? 8 And how do we hear each one speak in our own tongue, with which we were brought up? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites and the dwellers in Mesopotamia and in Judaea and Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, in Egypt and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12 And they were all amazed and were in doubt, saying one to another, What does this mean? 13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. 14 ¶ Then Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea and all ye that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known unto you and hearken to my words; 15 for these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon 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 for certain on my slaves and on my handmaids I will pour out in those days of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy; 19 and I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath: blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke; 20 the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood before that great and notable day of the Lord shall come; 21 and it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of 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 him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken and by wicked hands have crucified and slain, 24 whom God has raised up, having loosed the pains of death because it was not possible for him to be held by it. 25 For David speaks concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved, 26 therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover even my flesh shall rest in hope 27 because thou wilt not leave my soul in Hades, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto 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 sit on his throne; 31 he, seeing this before, spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that his soul was not left in Hades, neither did his flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus God has raised up, of whom we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore being raised up by the right hand of God and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this which ye now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand 35 until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37 ¶ Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized each one of you into the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted, saying, Be saved from this perverse generation. 41 So that those who gladly received his word were baptized, and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42 ¶ And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together and had all things common 45 and sold their possessions and property and distributed them to everyone, as each one had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food together with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 praising God and having grace with all the people. And the Lord added to the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} daily such as should be saved.

2 Corinthians 4:17

17 For our tribulation, which is momentary and light, prepares an exceeding and eternal weight of glory unto us;

John 1:1-51

1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with the God. 3 All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 ¶ And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness apprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not the Light, but was sent to bear witness of the Light. 9 That Word was the true Light, which lightens every man that comes into this world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name, 13 who are not born of blood, nor of the will of flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made 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 bore witness of him and cried, saying, This is he of whom I spoke, He that comes after me is preferred before me, for he was before me. 16 And of his fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but the grace and the truth of God came through Jesus, the Christ. 18 No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which 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 to ask him, Who art thou? 20 And he confessed and denied not, but confessed, I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? And he said, I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to those that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? 23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah. 24 And those who were sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him and said unto him, Why dost thou baptize then if thou art not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water, but there stands one among you, whom ye know not; 27 he it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose. 28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 ¶ The next day John saw Jesus coming unto him and said, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me comes a man who is preferred before me, for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not; but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 32 And John gave testimony, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not; but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending and abiding on him, the same is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. 34 And I have seen and have given testimony that this is the Son of God. 35 And again the next day John stood, and two of his disciples, 36 and looking upon Jesus as he walked, he said, Behold the Lamb of God! 37 ¶ And the two disciples heard him speak and followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned and saw them following and said unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted, Master), where dwellest thou? 39 He said unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt and abode with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. 40 One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, brother of Simon Peter. 41 He first found his own brother Simon and said unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. 42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jonah: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone. 43 ¶ The day following Jesus desired to go forth into Galilee and found Philip and said unto him, Follow me. 44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said unto him, We have found him of whom Moses in the law and the prophets wrote: Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip said unto him, Come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and said of him, Behold a true Israelite, in whom is no guile! 48 Nathanael said unto him, From where dost thou know me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 49 Nathanael answered and said unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these. 51 And he said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see the heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Isaiah 26:3-4

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusts in thee. 4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in JAH, the LORD is the strength of the ages:

6 ¶ I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are sons of the most High.

6 Jesus said unto him, I AM the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes unto the Father, but by me.

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

2 Timothy 2:15

15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that has nothing to be ashamed of, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Ezekiel 37:1-10

1 ¶ And the hand of the LORD was upon me and took me out in the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the midst of a field which was full of bones, 2 and caused me to pass by them round about; and, behold, there were very many upon the face of the field; and they were very dry. 3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. 4 Then he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones hear the word of the LORD. 5 Thus hath the Lord GOD said unto these bones: Behold, I will cause spirit to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6 And I will lay nerves upon you and will bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin and put spirit in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 7 So I prophesied as I was commanded, and as I prophesied, there was a thunder, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8 And I beheld, and behold nerves upon them and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no spirit in them. 9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the spirit, Thus hath the Lord GOD said: Come from the four winds, O spirit, and breathe upon these slain, and they shall live. 10 And I prophesied as he commanded me, and the spirit entered into them, and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

John 1:14

14 And the Word was made 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 Because I, the LORD, will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall no longer be prolonged, for in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and will perform it, said the Lord GOD.

1 Corinthians 1:28

28 and that which is vile of the world and that which is despised God has chosen, and things which are not, to bring to nought the things that are,

Hebrews 11:1-10

1 ¶ Faith, therefore, is the substance of things waited for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that the ages were framed by the word of God, that which is seen being made of that which was not seen. 4 ¶ By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts, and by it he being dead yet speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death, and was not found because God had translated him, for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please God; for he that comes to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him. 7 By faith Noah, having received revelation of things not seen as yet, with great care prepared an ark to the saving of his house, by which he condemned the world and was made heir of the righteousness which is by faith. 8 By faith Abraham, being called, hearkened to go out into the place which he should afterwards receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he went. 9 By faith he sojourned in the promised land, as in a strange country, dwelling in booths with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; 10 for he looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Romans 10:17

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

Joshua 1:8

8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night that thou may keep and do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way to prosper, and then thou shalt understand everything.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 ¶ In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 And the earth was without order, and empty; 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 that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first 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 a 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 Heavens. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9 ¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters he called Seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth green grass, herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after its nature, whose seed is in itself upon the earth; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth green grass and herb yielding seed after its kind and the tree yielding fruit whose seed was in itself, according to its nature; and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14 ¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for appointed times and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth; and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heavens 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 the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 ¶ And God said, Let the waters bring forth great quantities of creatures with living souls and fowl that may fly above the earth upon the face of the firmament of the heavens. 21 And God created the great dragons and every living soul that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly after their nature, and every winged fowl after its nature; 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 fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 24 ¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living soul after its nature, beasts and serpents and animals of the earth after its nature; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after its kind and cattle after their kind and every thing that moves upon the earth after 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 fowl of the air and over the beasts and over all the earth and over every serpent that moves upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over every beast that moves upon the earth. 29 ¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every grass bearing 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 fowl of the air and to every thing that moves upon the earth, in which there is a living soul, I have given all green grass for food; and it was so. 31 ¶ And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Romans 4:17

17 ¶ as it is written, As a father of many Gentiles have I placed thee before God, whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which are not as those that are.

Matthew 12:34-36

34 O generation 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 the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things, and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

2 Corinthians 4:18

18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Isaiah 55:11

11 So shall my Word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall be prospered in that for which I sent it.

Matthew 21:22

22 And all things, whatever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
