Bible verses about "wholeness" | Worsley
1 And it came to pass afterwards that He went through every city and village, preaching and declaring the good tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with Him; 2 and some women that had been cured of evil spirits and other infirmities, as Mary Magdalene, out of whom were cast seven demons, 3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, who assisted Him with their substance. 4 And when a great multitude was gathered together, of those that came to Him out of every city, He spake a parable saying, 5 A sower went out to sow his seed, and as he was sowing, some fell by the way-side, and was trodden down, and the birds of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell upon stony ground, and as soon as it sprung up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it. 8 But some fell on good ground, and sprang up and yielded fruit an hundred-fold. And as He said these things He cried out, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." 9 And his disciples asked Him, what might be the meaning of this parable. 10 And He said, To you it is granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but I speak to others in parables, that in seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand. 11 Now this is the meaning of the parable, The seed is the word of God: 12 and those by the way-side, are such as hear indeed; but then the devil cometh and taketh away the word from their hearts, least they should believe and be saved. 13 And those on stony-ground are such as when they hear, receive the word with joy; but have no root, and so believe only for a while, and in the time of trial fall away. 14 And that which fell among thorns, are those who when they have heard the word go away and are choked with the cares and riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15 But that on the good ground, are those who having heard the word, retain it in a good and honest heart, and bring forth fruit with patience. 16 No man when he hath lighted a candle covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a couch; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they who come in may see the light. 17 (For there is nothing secret, that shall not be made manifest: nor any thing concealed, which shall not be made known and come to light.) 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever improveth what he hath, to him shall more be given; and whosoever hath not, even what he seemeth to have shall be taken from him. 19 Now his mother and his brethren came to Him, and could not come at Him for the croud: 20 and it was told Him, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without desiring to see thee. 21 And He answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these that hear the word of God and do it. 22 And it came to pass on one of the days that He went into a ship, Himself and his disciples, and He said to them, Let us go over to the other side of the lake. 23 And they launched forth: but as they were failing, He fell asleep: and a storm of wind came down upon the lake, and they were filled with water, and were in great danger. 24 And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, Master, master, we are perishing. Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and the raging of the water, and they ceased, and there was a calm. 25 And He said unto them, Where is your faith? But they were struck with awe and amazement, and said one to another, who is this? for He commandeth even the winds and the sea, and they obey Him. 26 And they sailed to the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. 27 And when He was landed, there met Him a man out of the city, who had been possessed by demons a long while, and wore no clothes, and abode in no dwelling but the tombs. 28 But when he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down to Him, and said with a loud voice, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I beseech thee, do not torment me. 29 (For He commanded the impure spirit to come out of the man; which had oftentimes seized him so violently, that tho' he was bound with chains and fetters, yet he broke the bands asunder, and was driven by the demon into those lonely places.) 30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? and he said, Legion: because many demons were entred into him. 31 And they besought Him that He would not command them to go into the abyss: 32 but as there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain, they intreated Him that He would suffer them to enter into them, and He permitted them. 33 So the demons went out of the man and entred into the swine: and the herd ran violently down the hill into the lake and were drowned. 34 And when those that looked after them saw what was done they fled; and went and told it in city and country: 35 and the people went out to see what was done, and came to Jesus; and found the man, from whom the demons were gone out, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind: 36 and they were afraid, for those that saw it told them how the demoniac was healed. 37 And all the people of the country round about the Gadarenes desired Him to depart from them; for they were seized with great fear: and He went into the ship and returned. 38 Now the man from whom the demons were gone out, prayed Him to let him be with Him: but Jesus sent him away, 39 saying, Return home, and relate what God hath done for thee. So he went away publishing through the whole city what great things Jesus had done to him. 40 And when Jesus returned, a great multitude of people received Him; for they were all waiting for Him. 41 And behold there came a man whose name was Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue, and he fell at the feet of Jesus, and intreated Him to come into his house: 42 for he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. (But as He was going, the people crouded Him: 43 and a woman who had been in a flux twelve years, and had spent her whole livelyhood upon physicians, 44 but could not be healed by any, came close behind Him and touched the hem of his garment, and immediately her flux was stopt. 45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied it, Peter, and those that were with him, said, Sir, the multitudes throng and press thee, and dost thou ask, Who was it that touched me? 46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive a peculiar virtue is gone out of me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not concealed, she came trembling, and fell down to Him, and declared before all the people, for what reason she had touched Him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And He said unto her, Daughter, be comforted, thy faith has healed thee, go in peace.) 49 While He was yet speaking, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's, and said to Him, Thy daughter is dead, trouble not the Master. 50 But Jesus hearing it, answered saying, Fear not, only believe, and she shall be recovered. 51 And when He came to the house, He suffered none to go in but Peter, and James, and John, and the father and mother of the child. 52 And they were all weeping and bewailing her: but He said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. 53 And they laughed at Him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But He turned them all out, and taking hold of her hand, called to her, saying, Child, arise. 55 And her spirit returned, and immediately she stood up: and He ordered something to be given her to eat. 56 And her parents were exceedingly astonished: but He charged them to tell no one what was done.
3 Incessantly remembering your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father: 4 knowing, beloved brethren, your election by God. 5 For our gospel came not to you in word only, but also in power, and in the holy Ghost, and in much certainty; as ye know what sort of persons we were among you for your sakes. 6 And ye became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word tho' in much affliction, yet with joy of the holy Ghost. 7 So that ye became examples to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. 8 For the word of the Lord sounded forth from you, not only in Macedonia and Achaia; but also in every place your faith towards God is spread abroad, so that we have no need to say any thing of it. 9 For they themselves declare concerning us what kind of entrance we had among you, and how ye turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God;
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth passed away, and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, descending from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven, saying, Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be his people, and God himself, even their God, will be with them. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall be death no more, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And He said to me, It is done. I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end: I will give to him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things, and I will be a God to him, and he shall be to me a son. 8 But the fearful, and faithless, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death. 9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels, who had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and he spake with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. 10 And he carried me away in spirit to a great and high mountain, and he shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God: 11 and her light was like a most precious stone, even as a Jasper-stone resembling crystal: 12 having also a great and high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and there were names inscribed, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. 13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and it's gates, and it's wall. 16 And the city was four-square, it's length being as much as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed twelve thousand furlongs: the length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured the wall of it an hundred forty four cubits according to the measure of a man, for such was that of the angel. 18 And the structure of its wall was of Jasper, and the city pure gold, like transparent glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were set off each with precious stones: the first foundation a jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, 20 the fourth an emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprasus, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth an amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each of the gates was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold like resplendent glass. 22 And I saw no temple in it: for the Lord God almighty, and the Lamb, are the temple of it. 23 And the city hath no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God enlighteneth it, and the Lamb is it's light. 24 And the nations of those that are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth bring their glory and their honor into it. 25 And the gates of it are not to be shut by day: for there shall be no night there. 26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. 27 And nothing shall enter into it that defileth, and practiseth abomination and falshood: but those only who are written in the Lamb's book of life.
1 And he shewed me a pure river of the water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God, and of the Lamb. 2 And in the midst of the street, and of the river, which ran on each side, was the tree of life, producing fruits twelve times in the year, yielding its different fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 And every curse shall cease: and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall serve Him. 4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be on their foreheads. 5 And there shall be no night there: and they have no need of a candle, nor of the light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light; and they shall reign for ever and ever. 6 And he said unto me, These words are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets hath sent his angel to shew unto his servants what must soon be. 7 For behold I come quickly: happy is he that keepeth the words of the prophecy of this book. 8 And I John am he who saw and heard these things: and when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel, who shewed me these things. 9 And he said unto me, See thou do it not: for I am a fellow-servant of thine, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of those who observe the words of this book: worship God. 10 And he said unto me, Seal not the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is near. 11 Let him, that is unjust, be unjust still: and let him, that is filthy, be filthy still: and let him, that is righteous, be righteous still; and let him, that is holy, be holy still. 12 And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to recompense every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Happy are they that do his commandments, so shall they have a right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city. 15 But without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and every one that loveth and practiseth falshood. 16 I Jesus have sent my messenger to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am both the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come; and let him that heareth say, Come. And let him, that thirsteth, Come. And let him, that desireth it, take the water of life freely. 18 I testify to every one that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any one add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 and if any one take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things that are written in this book. 20 He who testifieth these things saith, I surely come quickly. Amen, even so come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
1 And He called unto Him his twelve disciples, and gave them power over impure spirits, even to cast them out; and to cure all diseases and every malady whatsoever.
12 Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I perform he also shall perform, and greater than these shall he do: because I am going to the Father.
17 He is before all, and by Him all things subsist.
10 But may the God of all grace, who hath called us to his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after ye have suffered a little while, make you perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
25 So he, that loveth his life, shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, shall preserve it unto life eternal.
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, and well-pleasing to God, as your rational service.
13 I can do all things through Christ strengthening me.
13 But when the Spirit of truth is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He will not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that will He speak, and will shew you things to come.
17 and every perfect gift, but no evil one, is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, nor shadow of turning:
10 The thief cometh only to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they may have life, and may have it in perfection.
1 James a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in dispersion sendeth greeting. 2 Account it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into various trials: 3 knowing this, that the trial of your faith worketh patience; 4 but let patience have it's perfect work, that ye may be entirely perfect, failing in nothing. 5 And if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask it of God, who giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting; for he that doubteth is like a wave of the sea blown about and tossed by the wind. 7 Let not that man think that he shall receive any thing from the Lord. 8 A double-minded man is inconstant in all his ways. 9 Let the brother that is low rejoice in his exaltation: but the rich in his humiliation, 10 because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. 11 For when the sun is risen with it's sultry heat, it drieth up the grass, and the flower of, it falleth, and the beauty of it's appearance is lost: so shall the rich man fade away in his projects. 12 Happy is the man who sustaineth temptation; for being approved he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him. 13 Let no one that is tempted say, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted by evils, and He tempteth no one. 14 But every man is tempted, when drawn aside and insnared by his own vehement desire. 15 Then desire having conceived bringeth forth sin, and sin when it is finished bringeth forth death. 16 Be not therefore deceived, my beloved brethren: for every good gift, 17 and every perfect gift, but no evil one, is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, nor shadow of turning: 18 who hath of his own will begotten us by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first-fruits of his creatures. 19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 for the wrath of man doth not practise the righteousness of God. 21 Laying aside therefore all filthiness, and excess of malice, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man beholding his natural face in a mirror, 24 who beheld himself, and went away, and immediately forgot what manner of man he was. 25 But he that looketh well into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26 If any among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his heart, this man's devotion is vain. 27 Pure and uncorrupt religion before God and our Father is this, to take care of orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
