Acts 2:1-47

1 When the fiftieth day was come, they were all with one accord gathered together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as it had been the coming of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they sat. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues, like as they had been fire, and it sat upon each of them: 4 and they were all filled with the holy ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, even as the spirit gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, which were of all nations under heaven. 6 When this was noised about, the multitude came together and were astonished, because that every man heard them speak his own tongue. 7 They wondered all, and marveled: saying among themselves, "Behold, are not all these which speak of Galilee? 8 And how hear we every man his own tongue wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, Medes, and Elamites and the inhabiters of Mesopotamia, of Jewry and of Cappadocia, of Pontus and of Asia; 10 Phrigia, Pamphylia, and of Egypt, and of the parts of Libya, which is beside Cyrene; And strangers of Rome; 11 Jews and converts, Greeks and Arabians: We have heard them speak with our own tongues the great works of God." 12 They were all amazed, and wondered: saying one to another, "What meaneth this?" 13 Others mocked them saying, "They are full of new wine." 14 But Peter stepped forth with the eleven, and lift up his voice, and said unto them, "Ye men of Jewry, and all ye that inhabit Jerusalem: be this known unto you, and with your ears hear my words. 15 These are not drunken, as ye suppose — For it is yet but the third hour of the day - 16 but this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel, 17 'It shall be in the last days, saith God, of my spirit I will pour out 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 on my servants, and on my handmaidens I will pour out of my spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. 19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and tokens in the earth beneath, blood and fire, and the 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 come.' 21 And it shall be 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 with miracles and wonders, and signs which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves know: 23 him have ye taken by the hands of unrighteous persons, after he was delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, and have crucified and slain him whom God hath raised up: 24 and loosed the sorrows of death, because it was impossible that he should be holden of it. 25 For David speaketh of him, 'Aforehand, saw I God always before me: For he is on my righthand, that I should not be moved. 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad. Moreover also, my flesh shall rest in hope 27 because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt suffer thine holy to see corruption. 28 Thou hast showed me the ways of life; and shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.' 29 "Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David: For he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre remaineth with us unto his day. 30 Therefore seeing he was a prophet, and knew that God had sworn with an oath to him, that the fruit of his loins should sit on his seat — in that Christ should rise again in the flesh - 31 He saw before, and spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul should not be left in hell: neither his flesh should see corruption. 32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33 Since now that he by the righthand of God exalted is, and hath received of the father the promise of the holy ghost, he hath shed forth that which ye now see and hear. 34 For David is not ascended into heaven, but he said, 35 'The Lord said to my Lord sit on my right hand, until I make thy foes, thy footstool.' 36 So therefore let all the house of Israel know for a surety, that God hath made the same Jesus whom ye have crucified, Lord and Christ." 37 When they heard this, they were pricked in their hearts, and said unto Peter, and unto the other apostles, "Ye men and brethren, what shall we do?" 38 Peter said unto them, "Repent, and be baptised every one of of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the holy ghost. 39 "For the promise was made unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar, even as many as the Lord God shall call." 40 And with many other words bare he witness, and exhorted them saying, "Save yourselves from this untoward generation." 41 Then they that gladly received his preaching were baptised; And the same day, there were added unto them about a three thousand souls. 42 And they continued in the Apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayer. 43 And fear came over every soul. And many wonders and signs were showed by the apostles. 44 And all that believed kept themselves together, and had all things common. 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and departed them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they continued daily with one accord in the temple, and brake bread in every house, and did eat their meat together with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, 47 and had favour with all the people, and the Lord added to the congregation daily such as should be saved.

2 Corinthians 4:17

17 For our exceeding tribulation, which is momentary and light, prepareth 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 God: and the word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by it, and without it was made no thing, that was made. 4 In it was life; And the life was the light of men; 5 And the light shineth in the darkness, but the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came as a witness, to bear witness of the light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that light: but to bear witness of the light. 9 That was a true light, which lighteneth all men that come into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world by him was made: and yet the world knew him not. 11 He came among his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to be the sons of God: in that they believed on his name: 13 which were born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh, nor yet of the will of man: but of God. 14 And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw the glory of it, as the glory of the only begotten son of the father, which word was full of grace, and verity. 15 John bare witness of him and cried, saying, "This was he of whom I spake, which though he came after me, went before me: for he was before me." 16 And of his fullness have all we received, even grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18 No man hath seen God at any time. The only begotten son, which is in the father's bosom, hath declared him. 19 And this is the record of John: When the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem, to ask him, "What art thou?" 20 And he confessed, and denied not, and said plainly, "I am not Christ." 21 And they asked him, "What then? Art thou Elijah?" And he said, "I am not." Art thou that prophet? And he answered, "No." 22 Then said they unto him, "What art thou, that we may give an answer to them that sent us? What sayest thou of thy self?" 23 He said, "I am the voice of a crier in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah." 24 And they which were sent, were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said unto him, "Why baptisest thou then, if thou be not Christ, nor Elijah, neither a prophet?" 26 John answered them, saying, "I baptise with water: but one is come among you, whom ye know not. 27 He it is that cometh after me, which was before me, whose shoe latchet I am not worthy to unloose." 28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John did baptise. 29 The next day, John saw Jesus coming unto him, and said, "Behold, the lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, 'After me cometh a man, which went before me. For he was before me, 31 and I knew him not: but that he should be declared to Israel, therefore am I come, baptising with water.'" 32 And John bare record, saying, "I saw the spirit descend from heaven, like unto a dove, and abide upon him, and I knew him not: 33 But he that sent me to baptise in water, the same said unto me, 'Upon whom thou shalt see the spirit descend, and tarry still on him, the same is he which baptiseth with the holy ghost.' 34 And I saw it, and bare record, that this is the son of God." 35 The next day after, John stood again, and two of his disciples, 36 and he beheld Jesus as he walked by, and said, "Behold the lamb of God." 37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus turned about, and saw them follow, and said unto them, "What seek ye?" They said unto him, "Rabbi," which is to say, by interpretation, "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, which heard John speak, and followed Jesus, was Andrew; Simon Peter's brother. 41 The same found his brother Simon first, and said unto him, "We have found Messiah," which is by interpretation, Anointed. 42 And brought him to Jesus. And Jesus beheld him and said, "Thou art Simon the son of Jonas, thou shalt be called Cephas," which is by interpretation, a stone. 43 The day following, Jesus would go into Galilee, and found Philip, and said unto him, "Follow me." 44 Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 And Philip found Nathaniel, and said unto him, "We have found him of whom Moses, in the law and the prophets, did write: Jesus, the son of Joseph of Nazareth." 46 And Nathanael said unto him, "Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, "Behold a right Israelite, in whom is no guile." 48 Nathanael said unto him, "From where knowest thou me?" Jesus answered, and said unto him, "Before that 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, thou believest? Thou shalt see greater things than these." 51 And he said unto him, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending, and descending over the son of man."

Isaiah 26:3-4

3 And thou, which art the doer and hast the matter in hand: shall provide for peace, even the peace that men hope for in thee. 4 Hope still in the LORD, for in the LORD God is everlasting strength.

Psalms 82:6

6 I have said, "Ye are gods, and ye are all the children of the most highest.

Mark 11:23

23 Verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 'Take away thyself, and cast thyself into the sea'; and shall not waver in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he sayeth shall come to pass, whatsoever he sayeth shall be done to him.

John 14:6

6 Jesus said unto him, "I am the way, the truth and the life. And no man cometh unto the father, but 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 Study to show thyself laudable unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, dividing the word of truth justly.

Ezekiel 37:1-10

1 The hand of the LORD came upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and let me down in a plain field that lay full of bones. 2 And he led me round about by them, and behold, the bones that lay upon the field were very many, and marvelous dry also. 3 Then said he unto me, "Thou son of man: thinkest thou these bones may live again?" And I answered, "O LORD God, thou knowest." 4 And he said unto me, "Prophesy thou upon these bones, and speak unto them, 'Ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. 5 Thus sayeth the LORD God unto these bones: Behold, I will put breath into you, that ye may live. 6 I will give you sinews, and make flesh grow upon you, and cover you over with skin: and so give you breath, that ye may live and know that I am the LORD.'" 7 So I prophesied, as he had commanded me: and as I was prophesying, there came a noise and a great motion, so that the bones ran every one to another. 8 Now when I had looked, behold, they had sinews, and flesh grew upon them: and above they were covered with skin, but there was no breath in them. 9 Then said he unto me, "Thou son of man, prophesy thou toward the wind: prophesy, and speak to the wind, 'Thus sayeth the LORD God: Come, O thou air, from the four winds, and blow upon these slain, that they may be restored to life.'" 10 So I prophesied, as he had commanded me: then came the breath into them and they received life, and stood up upon their feet: a marvelous great sortie.

John 1:14

14 And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw the glory of it, as the glory of the only begotten son of the father, which word was full of grace, and verity.

Ezekiel 12:25

25 For it is I, the LORD, that speak it: and whatsoever I, the LORD, speak, it shall be performed, and not be slacken in coming. Yea even in your days, O ye froward household, will I devise something and bring it to pass, sayeth the LORD God.'"

1 Corinthians 1:28

28 And vile things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things of no reputation, for to bring to nought things of reputation,

Hebrews 11:1-10

1 Faith is a sure confidence of things which are hoped for, and a certainty of things which are not seen. 2 By it the elders were well reported of. 3 Through faith we understand that the world was ordained, by the word of God: and that things which are seen, were made of things which are not seen. 4 By faith, Abel offered unto God a more plenteous sacrifice than Cain: by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: by which also he being dead, yet speaketh. 5 By faith was Enoch translated that he should not see death; neither was he found, for God had taken him away. Before he was taken away, he was reported of that he had pleased God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: For he that cometh to God, must believe that God is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek him. 7 By faith Noah honoured God, after that he was warned of things which were not seen, and prepared the ark to the saving of his household, through the which ark he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which cometh by faith. 8 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out into a place which he should afterward receive to inheritance, and he went out, not knowing whither he should go. 9 By faith he removed into the land that was promised him, as into a strange country, and dwelt in tabernacles: and so did Isaac, and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he looked for a city having a foundation, whose builder and maker is God.

Romans 10:17

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

Joshua 1:8

8 Let not the book of this law depart out of thy mouth: but record therein day and night that thou mayest be circumspect to do according to all that is written therein. For then shalt thou make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have understanding.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God created heaven and earth. 2 The Earth was void and empty and darkness was upon the deep, and the spirit of God moved upon the water. 3 Then God said, "Let there be light." And there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good: and divided the light from the darkness, 5 and called the light "day," and the darkness "night." And so of the evening and morning was made the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a firmament between the waters, and let it divide the waters asunder." 7 Then God made the firmament, and parted the waters which were under the firmament, from the waters that were above the firmament: And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament "heaven." And so of the evening and morning was made the second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters that are under heaven gather themselves unto one place, that the dry land may appear." And it came so to pass. 10 And God called the dry land "the earth" and the gathering together of waters called he "the sea." And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth herb and grass that sow seed, and fruitful trees that bear fruit, every one in his kind, having their seed in themselves, upon the earth." And it came so to pass. 12 And the earth brought forth herb and grass sowing seed, every one in his kind, and trees bearing fruit and having their seed in themselves, every one in his kind. And God saw that it was good: 13 and then of the evening and morning was made the third day. 14 Then said God, "Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven, to divide the day from the night; that they may be unto signs, seasons, days and years. 15 And let them be lights in the firmament of heaven, to shine upon the earth." And so it was. 16 And God made two great lights: a greater light to rule the day, and a lesser light to rule the night; and he made stars also. 17 And God put them in the firmament of heaven to shine upon the earth, 18 and to rule the day and the night, and to divide the light from darkness. And God saw that it was good: 19 and so of the evening and morning was made the fourth day. 20 And God said, "Let the water bring forth creatures that move and have life, and fowls for to fly over the earth under the firmament of heaven." 21 And God created great whales and all manner of creatures that live and move, which the waters brought forth in their kinds, and all manner of feathered fowls in their kinds. And God saw that it was good: 22 and God blessed them, saying, "Grow and multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let the fowls multiply upon the earth." 23 And so of the evening and morning was made the fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures in their kinds: cattle and worms and beasts of the earth in their kinds." And so it came to pass. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth in their kinds, and cattle in their kinds, and all manner worms of the earth in their kinds: and God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, "Let us make man in our similitude and after our likeness: that he may have rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over all worms that creep on the earth." 27 And God created man after his likeness, after the likeness of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, "Grow and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over all the beasts that move on the earth. 29 And God said, "See, I have given you all herbs that sow seed which are on all the earth, and all manner trees that have fruit in them and sow seed; to be meat for you, 30 and for all beasts of the earth, and unto all fowls of the air, and unto all that creepeth on the earth wherein is life, that they may have all manner herbs and grass for to eat." And even so it was. 31 And God beheld all that he had made, and lo they were exceeding good: and so of the evening and morning was made the sixth day.

Romans 4:17

17 As it is written, "I have made thee a father to many nations," even before God whom thou hast believed, which quickeneth the dead and called those things which be not, as though they were.

Matthew 12:34-36

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye say well, when ye yourselves are evil? For of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart, bringeth forth good things. And an evil man out of his evil treasure, bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, that of every idle word, that men shall have spoken, they shall give accounts at the day of judgment.

2 Corinthians 4:18

18 while we look not on the things which are seen, but on the things which are not seen. For things which are seen, are temporal: but things which are not seen are eternal.

Isaiah 55:11

11 So the word also that cometh out of my mouth shall not turn again void unto me, but shall accomplish my will and prosper in the thing, whereto I sent it.

Matthew 21:22

22 And whatsoever thing ye shall ask in your prayers if ye believe, ye shall receive it."

2 Corinthians 4:13

13 Seeing then that we have the same spirit of faith, according as it is written — "I believed and therefore have I spoken" — we also believe, and therefore speak.

Proverbs 18:21

21 Death and life stand in the power of the tongue; he that loveth it, shall enjoy the fruit thereof.

Mark 11:22-24

22 And Jesus answered, and said unto them, "Have confidence in God. 23 Verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 'Take away thyself, and cast thyself into the sea'; and shall not waver in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he sayeth shall come to pass, whatsoever he sayeth shall be done to him. 24 Therefore I say unto you, Whatsoever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye shall have it and it shall be done unto you.
