The spirit of Man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly: As Man thinks in his heart, so is he.He that has no rule over his own spirit, is like a city that is broken down and without walls: The candle of the wicked shall be put out.
So, do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption: Be renewed in the spirit of your mind and let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but only that which is Good, according to the power which the Lord has given us for edification, and not for destruction. Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?
This know also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, having a form of godliness, but denying the power of God: From such turn away. For of this sort, are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with various lusts; ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth.
Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a Man over the congregation, who may go out before them, and who may go in before them; that the congregation of the Lord be not as sheep who has no shepherd. And Jesus Christ was declared to be the Son of God with power: According to the Spirit of Holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Jesus came in the power of the Spirit, saying: If I, with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the Kingdom of God is come upon you. I will ransom you from the power of the grave, I will redeem you from Death.
Thus, the Father has given Jesus Christ power over all flesh, that He should give eternal Life to as many as He has given Him. He saved them for His Name's sake, that He might make His mighty power be known. Jesus Christ, being the brightness of the Father’s glory and the express image of His person and upholding all things by the Word of His power; when He had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High. Thus, you may know that the Son of Man has power on Earth to forgive sins, and to as many as received Him, He gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe in His Name.
And Jesus Christ said: Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. The Holy Spirit shall come upon you and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you: You shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit is come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses to the uttermost part of the Earth, that repentance and the remission of sins should be preached in the Name of Jesus Christ among all nations. This is the Word of the Lord: Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit.
The Word is God and the Word was made flesh, and said:He that eats My flesh, the Words that I speak to you, dwells in Me and I in him. Thus, the Words of God were found by me and I did eat them: Theyare Spirit and they are Life! Then, Jesus said: Whoever drinks My blood, the Spirit whom you should receive by believing in Me, shall never thirst;but the water that I shall give you, shall be in you a well of water springing up into everlasting Life.
Thus, he that believes in Me, as the scripture has said: Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water!For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My Spirit upon your seed. God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation by the sanctification of the spirit through faith in the Truth: He that believes in the Son has everlasting Life. The just shall live by faith: Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. But without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him: Like Stephen, who was full of faith and power, and did great wonders and miracles among the people.
Thus, let us draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith,having our hearts sprinkled from an Evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water:That God might sanctify and cleanse us with the washing of water by the Word,being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in us, will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ. We know that all things work together for the Good of them that love God, for them who are the Called, according to His purpose. For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestine to be conformed to the image of His Son: That you might walk worthy of the Lord, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power.
I sleep, but my heart wakes: It is the voice of my beloved that knocks, saying: Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any Man hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him. My beloved put in His hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for Him. And when He had made an end of communing, He gave two tables of Testimony, written with the finger of God, saying: I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean from all your filthiness and from all your idols.
A new heart also will I give you, and a new Spirit will I put within you: I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh; and I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes and do them; and I will multiply the fruit of the tree.Behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: You will be endued with power from on High; to open their eyes, and to turn them from Darkness to Light, and from the power of Satan to God; that they may receive the forgiveness of sins, and an inheritance among them who are sanctified by faith in Jesus Christ.
My vineyard, which is mine, is before me and its fruit was to bring a thousand pieces of silver: Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me; so that not my will, but yours, be done. The blueness of a wound cleanses away Evil: Stripes cleanse the inward parts of the belly. As my strength is made perfect in weakness, the Lord must increase, but I must decrease: We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us; by the Word of Truth, by the power of God. He that comes from above is above all: He that is of the Earth is earthly and speaks of the Earth. And the Lord said: My grace is enough for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me, as on the servants of the Most-High God, who show the Way of Salvation.
A garden enclosed is my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits: A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters! Thus, says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. Awake, O north wind; and come, you south; blow upon My garden, that its spices may flow out! And God says to us: I shall put My Spirit in you, and you shall live. The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes: So is every one that is born of the Spirit. And when He had said this, He breathed on His disciples, and said: Receive the Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Let my beloved come into His garden and eat His pleasant fruits! Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for Love is strong: Its coals are coals of fire, which have a most vehement flame and many waters cannot quench Love. Thus, says the Lord: Sing unto her, who she is the vineyard of red wine! I, the Lord, do keep it; I will water it every moment, lest any hurt it, and I will keep it night and day.
And I saw an angel, having the seal of the Living God, who cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to hurt the Earth and the sea, saying: Do not hurt the Earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we may know the things that are freely given to us by: Of which we speak in the Words which the Holy Ghost teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. He that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no Man; for who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. I beseech you therefore, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service; and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and perfect will of God.
The hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in Truth. God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in Truth, or else the silver cord will be loosed, and the golden bowl will be broken at the fountain: Then shall the dust return to the Earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God who gave it.
God will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire: For the Lord will purge the bloodshed by the Spirit of judgment and the Spirit of burning. Yet, a tenth shall return, as a teal tree and as an oak whose substance is in them: Thus, the Holy seed shall see its substance. For, when God’s heart is moved, the heart of His people, as the trees of the wood, are moved with the wind.
God will keep in perfect peace, he whose mind is stayed on Him: Because he trusts in Him, the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him; the Spirit of counsel and might. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength. And Jesus said: Verily I say to you, whatever you shall bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven, and whatever you shall loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven. Again, I say to you: That if two of you shall agree on Earth on anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father who is in Heaven, for where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in their midst.
And whatever you shall ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son: Upon this rock will I build my church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: Whatever you shall loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heavenand whatever you shall bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven.
Therefore, take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, to loosen and to bind, even like Peter who bound when he said: Why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit? And hearing these words, Ananias fell and gave up the spirit; then great fear came upon all, for they were astonished by his doctrine: His Word was with power, for the Word of God is powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And Jesus said: And in very deed, for this cause have I raised you up, to show in you My power; that My Name may be declared throughout all the Earth.
Your right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: Your right hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy into pieces! And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursues. God is my strength and power: And He makes my way perfect. Behold, God exalts by His power: Who teaches like Him? For truly, I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord; and of Judgment, and of might: They shall speak of the glory of God’s Kingdom and talk of His power! God has spoken once, twice have I heard this: That power belongs to God. I will sing of His power; yes, I will sing aloud of His mercy in the morning: For He has been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might, He increases strength; and upon their bodies, fire has no power.
Jesus gave His disciples power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all types of diseases. When the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men. And they were all amazed, and spoke among themselves, saying: What a Word is this! For with authority and power, he commands unclean spirits and they come out. Jesus gave His disciples power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Jesus said: If I, with the finger of God, cast out devils, no doubt the Kingdom of God is come upon you. The power of the Lord was present to heal them, and all were amazed at the mighty power of God and said: This man is the great power of God! And they asked: By what power, or by what Name, have you done this? Let it be known to you all, that by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, and God raised from the dead, even by Him does this Man stand here before you whole.
I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: For it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes. For the Gospel did not come to you in Word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit. According to the Almighty’s divine power, has He given us all things that pertain to Life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who has called us to glory and virtue: Now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ! Blessed and Holy are them that have part in the first resurrection: On such, the second Death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with Him a thousand years!
Let every soul be subject to the higher powers, for there is no power but of God: The powers that be are ordained of God. Whoever therefore resists the power, resists the ordinance of God: And they that resist shall receive damnation. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but to us who are saved, it is the power of God. And my speech and my preaching are not with enticing words of Man's wisdom, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God; it is not the speech of them who are puffed up, but the power.
For the Kingdom of God is not in Word, but in power: God has raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power. Therefore, we were made ministers, according to the gift of the grace of God given to us by the effective working of His power. Thus, we know the Love of Christ, that we may be filled with all the fullness of God; who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might: For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind; and we are complete in Him, who is the Head of all principality and power!
