Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our
likeness let them have dominion over the fish of
the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the
cattle, over all the earth and over every
creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
Adam and Eve
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of
every tree of the garden you may freely eat but
of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you
shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it
you shall surely die. Genesis 216,17
The Fall
So He drove out the man and He placed cherubim
at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming
sword which turned every way, to guard the way to
the tree of life.
Message to the Prophets

    Lord Isaiah 118

It is not in man who walks to direct his own

1 Corinthians
Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of
our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the
same thing, and that there be no divisions among
you, but that you be perfectly joined together in
the same mind and in the same judgment.
1 Corinthians 110
2 Corinthians
But this I say He who sows sparingly will also
reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will
also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he
purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of
necessity for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 96,7
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach
any other gospel to you than what we have
preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have
said before, so now I say again, if anyone
preaches any other gospel to you than what you
have received, let him be accursed.
Galatians 18,9
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you
were called in one hope of your calling one
Lord, one faith, one baptism one God and Father
of all, who is above all, and through all, and in
you all.
Ephesians 44-6
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or
conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem
others better than himself. Let each of you look
out not only for his own interests, but also for
the interests of others.
Philippians 23,4
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those
things which are above, where Christ is, sitting
at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things
above, not on things on the earth.
Colossians 31,2
1 Thessalonians
Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise
prophecies. Test all things hold fast what is
good. Abstain from every form of evil.
1 Thessalonians 519-22
2 Thessalonians
And with all unrighteous deception among those
who perish, because they did not receive the love
of the truth, that they might be saved. And for
this reason God will send them strong delusion,
that they should believe the lie, that they all
may be condemned who did not believe the truth
but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 210-12
1 Timothy
But you, O man of God, flee these things and
pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love,
patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of
faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you
were also called and have confessed the good
confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 Timothy 611,12
2 Timothy
Remind them of these things, charging them
before the Lord not to strive about words to no
profit, to the ruin of the hearers. Be diligent
to present yourself approved to God, a worker who
does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth.
Pauls Last Letter!
2 Timothy 214,15
For the grace of God that brings salvation has
appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying
ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live
soberly, righteously, and godly in the present
  • But as for you, speak the things which are
    proper for sound doctrine.
  • Titus 21

Titus 211,12
Having confidence in your obedience, I write to
you, knowing that you will do even more than I

  • But without faith it is impossible to please
    Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He
    is, and that He is a rewarder of those who
    diligently seek Him. (116)

But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly
evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our
God and Father, and with it we curse men, who
have been made in the similitude of God. Out of
the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My
brethren, these things ought not to be so.
James 38-10
1 Peter
For he who would love life And see good days,
Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his
lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from
evil and do good Let him seek peace and pursue
it. For the eyes of the LORD are on the
righteous, And His ears are open to their
prayers But the face of the LORD is against
those who do evil.
  • Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
    Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has
    begotten us again to a living hope through the
    resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an
    inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that
    does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you.

1 Peter 310-12
2 Peter
But also for this very reason, giving all
diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue
knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to
self-control perseverance, to perseverance
godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and
to brotherly kindness love.
  • The Lord is not slack concerning His promise,
    as some count slackness, but is longsuffering
    toward us, not willing that any should perish but
    that all should come to repentance. But the day
    of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in
    which the heavens will pass away with a great
    noise, and the elements will melt with fervent
    heat both the earth and the works that are in it
    will be burned up. (39,10)

2 Peter 15-7
1 John
Do not love the world or the things in the
world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the
Father is not in him. For all that is in the
world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the
eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father
but is of the world. And the world is passing
away, and the lust of it but he who does the
will of God abides forever.
1 John 215-17
2 John
Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the
doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who
abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the
Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and
does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him
into your house nor greet him for he who
greets him shares in his evil deeds.
2 John 9-11
3 John
Beloved, you do faithfully whatever you do for
the brethren and for strangers, who have borne
witness of your love before the church. If you
send them forward on their journey in a manner
worthy of God, you will do well.
3 John 5,6
Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to
you concerning our common salvation, I found it
necessary to write to you exhorting you to
contend earnestly for the faith which was once
for all delivered to the saints.
