The Mind of Christ

Before you begin your Bible study, as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, be sure you have named your sins privately to God the Father. 

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. [Known, Unknown and Forgotten sins] (1Jn 1:9)

You will then be in fellowship with God, Filled with God the Holy Spirit and ready to learn Truth from the Word of God.

God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth. (Joh 4:24)

                         The Mind of Christ

The Old Sin Nature

     Therefore, just as through one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and [Spiritual] death through sin, and so death [The old sin nature] spread to all men, because all sinned. (Rom 5:12)

     As it is Written, There is none righteous, not even one; There is none who understands, there is none who seeks for God; All have turned aside, together they have become useless; There is none who does good, there is not even one. (Rom 3:10-12)

     For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. (Isa 64:6)

     And He Jesus was saying, That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. For from within out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, [Satan’s] fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, [Religion] as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. [Worldly and empty chatter] All these evil thoughts proceed from within and defile the man.  (Mar 7:20-23)

     For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. (Rom 7:18)

     For we know that the Law is Spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin. (Rom 7:14)

     Because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. (Rom 3:20)

The Cure

     But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, [The Old Testament] even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction. for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Rom 3:21-23)

     For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh [The old sin nature ] but according to the Spirit. (Rom 8:3-4)

     But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [In fellowship with God the Holy Spirit] (Gal 5:22-23) and Truth; (1Co 2:16) for such people the father seeks to be His worshipers. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth. (Joh 4:23-24)

     So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot [False thinking] or wrinkle [Lack of Virtue]or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. (Eph 5:26-27)

     Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your Thoughts that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. (Exod 33:13)

     You shall keep My Thoughts and Practice [Think with] Them; I am the LORD who sanctifies you. (Lev 20:8)

     It shall be a blue tassel for you to look at and remember all the Thoughts of the LORD, so as to Think with Them, and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot. (Num 15:39)

     So keep and Think Them, for that is your Wisdom and you’re Understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all These Thoughts and say, Surely this great nation is a Wise and Understanding people. (Deut 4:6)

     Cursed is he who does not confirm the Words of this Law by Thinking with Them. And all the people shall say, Amen. (Deut 27:26)

     Now I Command you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, and become Spiritually mature in the Same Mind [The Mind of Christ] and in the Same Thoughts. (1Co 1:10)

     But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of Teaching to which you were given, and having been freed from sin, [The old sin nature's control] you became slaves of righteousness. [Staying in fellowship with God the Holy Spirit] (Rom 6:17-18)       

     Since you have in Obedience to the Truth purified your souls for a sincere love (Gal 5:22-23) of the brethren, fervently love one from a clean heart. (1Pe 1:22)

     For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent Promises, so that by Them you may become partakers of the Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption [The old sin nature] that is in the world by lust. (2Pe 1:4)

     No soldier in active service entangles himself in the thoughts of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. (2Ti 2:4

     Cursed be the one who does the LORD’S work inaccurately, and cursed be the one who does not fight in the battle. (Jer 48:10) 

     ...There is no discharge in time of war... (Ecc 8:8) 

The Standard IS Divine Thinking

     For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the Word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what It really IS, the Word of God, which also performs Its work in you who believe the Word! (1Th 2:13) 

     In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the Word of Truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures. This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the [Experiential] righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all Filthiness [Sin nature activity] and all that remains of wickedness, [Satan’s thinking] and in humility receive the Word implanted, which is able to deliver your souls. [Form the sin natures' control]

     But prove yourselves Thinkers of the Word not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a Thinker, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the Perfect Law, the Law of liberty, and Thinks with It not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual Thinker, this man will be blessed in what he does. (Jas 1:18-25) 

     And do not think the way this world does, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think in terms of arrogance but to Think with humility, as   God has given us the Mind of Christ to Think with. (Rom 12:2-3)

     For those who are living by the old sin nature set their minds on the thoughts of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the Thoughts of God the Holy Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is [Temporal] death, [Carnality] but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind set on the old sin nature is hostile toward God; for it does not think the Thoughts of God for it is not able to do so, and those who are thinking by the thoughts of the old sin nature cannot please God. (Rom 8:5-8)

     It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the Words that I have Spoken to you are Spirit and are life. (Joh 6:63)
     Incline your ear and hear the Words of the wise, and apply your mind to My Knowledge; for it will be pleasant if you keep My Thoughts within you, that They may be ready on your lips. So that your trust may be in the LORD. (Pro 22:17-18)
     But you shall speak My Words to them whether they listen or not for they are rebellious. (Eze 2:7)
     For He whom God has sent speaks the Words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure. (Joh 3:34)  

God's FREE Gifts

     So that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus; For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that [Salvation] is not of yourselves, it is the Gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Eph 2:7-9

     Being justified as a Gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus. (Rom 3:24)  

     But the free Gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the Gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. the Gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free Gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. (Rom 5:15-16

     For the wages of sin is death, [Spiritual and temporal] but the free Gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our LORD. (Rom 6:23)  

     All the circumcised believers who came with Peter were amazed, because the Gift of God the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the gentiles also. (Act 10:45)

     Therefore if God gave to them the same Gift as He gave us after believing in the LORD Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in Gods way? (Act 11:17)

     Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the Gift of God, and who it is who says to you, give Me a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have Given you Living Water. (Joh 4:10)

     Every Good Thought Given and every Perfect Gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or change in His Nature. (Jas 1:17)

     What then is my reward? When I preach the Truth, I may offer the Truth without charge, so as not to make full use of my right in the Gospel. For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I may win more. (1Co 9:18-19)

     Or did I commit a sin in humbling myself so that you might be exalted, because I preached the Truth to you without charge. (2Co 11:7)

     And now I commend you to God and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up [To Spiritual maturity] and Give you the reward for reaching Spiritual maturity among those who are sanctified by faith in Christ. I have coveted no one’s silver or gold or clothes. You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my own needs and to the men who were with me. In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the Words of the LORD Jesus, that He Himself said, It is more blessed to Give than to receive. (Act 20:32-35)

     Just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit but the Profit of the many, so that they may be saved. Be Imitators of me! Just as I also am of Christ. (1Co 10:33; 1Co 11:1)

     The carnal believers said to the Spiritually mature believers give us some of your Holy Spirit for our lamps are going out, But the prudent answered, No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves. (Mat 25:8-9)

     But Peter said to him, May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the Gift of God with money! You have no part or portion in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Therefore change your mind of thinking with Satan’s thoughts, and pray to the LORD that if possible the intention of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bondage of iniquity. (Act 8:20-23)

Believers cannot work for or buy Salvation, God the Holy Spirit, Truth, Spirituality and or Spiritual Gifts of any kind; because they are Free Gifts! So if believers buy or work for them they see no real growth in their livesthe Scriptures are watered down, and they starve!

We have to use God’s FREE Spiritual Thoughts only! (1Co 2:10-16)

     Then He said to me, It is done I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will Give to the one who thirsts from the springs of the Water of Life without charge. (Rev 21:6)      
     The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let the one who hears say, Come. And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the Water of Life without charge. (Rev 22:17)  

     For the Gifts and calling of God are irrevocable. (Rom 11:29)

God's Thoughts vs. false thoughts

     But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God’s Thoughts, but man’s. And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny his own thoughts, [Satan’s] and take up his cross [Old sin nature] and follow Me. [Day and night] For whoever wishes to save his thoughts will lose My Thoughts, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the Truth, will have a new nature, and a new life! [The plan of God the Father, the Mind of Christ, and the Fruit Virtue of God the Holy Spirit] For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his new life, For what will a man give in exchange for his new life? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My Words, in this Spiritual cheating and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him, [No reward] when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels. (Mar 8:33-38)
     For many believers walk, of whom I told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the Cross of Christ, whose end is burned up, [No reward] whose god is their appetite, [Old sin nature] whose glory is in there shame, [At the Judgment Seat of Christ] who set their minds on earthly thoughts. (Php 3:18-19)
     Thus says the LORD, Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, [Human thinking] and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he Understands and Knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises loving-kindness, justice, and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things, declares the LORD. Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, that I will punish all who are circumcised [Believers] and yet uncircumcised. [Still living by the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life] (Jer 9:23-25)  

     My son if you receive My Words and treasure My Commandments and Think with Them, and make your ear attentive to Wisdom, incline your heart to Understanding; for if you cry for Discernment, lift up your voice for Understanding; if you seek Her as silver and search for Her as hidden treasures; then you will discern being in fellowship with God the Holy Spirit, and discover the Knowledge of God. For the LORD gives Wisdom; from His Mouth come Knowledge and Understanding. He stores up sound Wisdom for the ones in fellowship; He is a shield to those who walk in the integrity of His Thinking. (Pro 2:1-7) 

     How blessed is the man who finds Wisdom and the man who gains Understanding. For Her profit is better than the profit of silver, and Her gain better than fine gold. She is more precious than jewels; and nothing you desire compares with Her. (Pro 3:13-15

     The LORD by His Wisdom founded the earth; by His Understanding He established the heavens. By His Knowledge the deeps were broken up and the skies drip down with dew. (Pro 3:19-20)
     Being in fellowship is the beginning of Wisdom, and the Thinking of the Holy One IS Understanding. (Pro 9:10) 

     For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man builds on the Foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, [Gods Thoughts] wood, hay, straw, [Satanic and human thoughts]each mans work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with Fire, and the Fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work. If any man’s work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. (1Co 3:11-14)

     Now I will arise, says the LORD, now I will be exalted; now I will be lifted up. You have conceived chaff, you will give birth to stubble; My Breath will consume you like Fire. (Isa 33:10-11

     Let him who has MY Thoughts speak My Word in Truth. What does straw have in common with grain? declares the LORD, is not My word like a Fire? Declares the LORD, and like a hammer which shatters a rock? (Jer 23:28-29)

     Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered into the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him. for to us God revealed Them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all Things, even the Depths of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the Thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have not received  the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the Thoughts freely Given to us by God, which Thoughts we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but Those taught by the Spirit, combining Spiritual Thoughts with Spiritual Words. (1Co 2:9-13)

     But a natural man unbeliever or a believer out of fellowship does not accept the Thoughts of the Spirit of God for They are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand Them, because They are Spiritually appraised. But he who is in fellowship Understands all Spiritual Thoughts, yet he himself is understood by no one out of fellowship. For who has known the Mind of the LORD, that he could instruct Him? But we are to Think with the Mind of Christ. (1Co 2:14-16)

     He who disciplines the nations, will He not correct you, even He who Teaches man Knowledge? The LORD knows the thoughts of man, that they are a mere breath. [Useless] (Psa 94:10-11)    

     Acknowledge your sins, behold, I will pour out My Spirit on you; I will make My Words Known to you. (Pro 1:23)     

     As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His Knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their sins. (Isa 53:11)

     ...Through Knowledge the righteous will be delivered. (Pro 11:9)  

     My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge, because you have rejected Knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. (Hos 4:6)

     Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming Obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (Php 2:8)

     ...Has the LORD as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in Obeying the Voice of the LORD? Behold, to Obey is better than sacrifice, and to Listen and Obey, than the best we can offer. For rebellion is the sin of demonism, and not Obeying is sin and demon worship. Because you have rejected the Word of the LORD, He has rejected you from being a king. (1Sa 15:22-23)      

     And Jesus said to him Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal This to you, but My Father who is in heaven. I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon This Rock [Divine Revelation] I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. (Mat 16:17-18)

     Those who have Insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. (Dan 12:3)

     No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me Draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day. It is Written in the Word, AND THEY SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT OF GOD. Everyone who has Heard and Learned from the Father, comes to Me. (Joh 6:44-45)

     All your sons will be Taught of the LORD; And the well-being of your sons will be great. (Isa 54:13)

     That your hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, [Fruit of God the Holy Spirit] and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of Understanding, resulting in a True Knowledge of God’s Word that is Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge. (Col 2:2-3)
     He who does not love Me does not keep My Words; and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me. (Joh 14:24)

     Whoever speaks is to do so as one who is speaking the Utterances of God... (1Pe 4:11)

     Then hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and forgive, and render to each according to his thoughts, whose heart You know for You alone know the hearts of the sons of men. (2Ch 6:30) 

     And He who searches the hearts knows what the Mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. (Rom 8:27) 

     The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it? I the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his thoughts, according to the fruit of his actions. (Jer 17:9-10)

     In that they show the work of the Law Written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing them or else defending them, on the day [The Judgment Seat of Christ] when, according to the Scriptures, God will judge the secret thoughts of men through Christ Jesus. (Rom 2:15-16) 

     I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness. If anyone hears My Sayings and does not think with them I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. He, who rejects Me and My Sayings, has one who judges him; the Word I Spoke is what will judge him at the last day. (Joh 12:46-48)

     And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Why are you thinking evil in your hearts? (Mat 9:4) 

     ...And all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your thoughts. (Rev 2:23)   

     Men of low degree are only vanity and men of rank are a lie; in the balances they go up; they are together lighter than breath. [Useless] (Psa 62:9)
     ...Surely every man at his best is a mere breath. [Useless] (Psa 39:5) 

     The LORD knows the thoughts of man, That they are a mere breath. [Useless] (Psa 94:11)

     And again, THE LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS [Thoughts] of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS. (1Co 3:20)

     Seek the LORD while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked [Religious unbeliever and believer] forsake his way and the unrighteous man [Carnal believer] his thoughts; and acknowledge his sins to the LORD, and He will have compassion on him and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. (Rebound; 1Jn 1:9) For My Thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways, MY ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My Thoughts, than your thoughts. (Isa 55:6-9)

     I have spread out My hands all day long to a rebellious people, Who walk in the way which is not good, following their own thoughts. (Isa 65:2)

     Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the Teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who Thinks with the Teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. (2Jn 1:9)

The Rest Spiritual Maturity

     If because of the Sabbath, you turn your foot from doing your own pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, and honor it, desisting from your own thoughts, from seeking your own pleasure, and speaking your own word, then you will take delight in the LORD!  Then you will become a Spiritually mature believer, and I will feed you mature Truth! (Isa 58:13-14) 

     Therefore, let us fear if, while a Promise remains of entering His Rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it. For indeed we have had the Word preached to us, just as they also; but the Word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard. For we who have believed enter that Rest just as He has said, As I swore in My wrath they shall not enter MY Rest; although His works were finished from the foundation of the world. (Heb 4:1-3) 

     Therefore, since it remains for some to enter It, and those who formerly had God's Thoughts preached to them, failed to enter the Rest because they did not believe the Word, and mix it with faith. (Heb 4:6)
     For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you hear His Voice, do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, [Complaining] as in the day of Massah [Tested to wipe them out] in the wilderness, when your fathers tested Me, they tried Me, though they had seen My work. For forty years I loathed that generation, and said they are a people who err in their heart, and they do not know My Thoughts. Therefore I swore in My anger, truly they shall not enter My Rest. (Psa 95:7-11) 

     To who would He teach Knowledge, and to whom would He interpret the Message? Those just weaned from milk? [Baby believers] Those just taken from the breast? For He says, order on order, order on order, line on line, line on line a little here, a little there. Indeed, He will Speak to this people through stammering lips and a foreign tongue, He who said to them, here is Rest, give Rest to the weary, and, here is repose, but they would not listen. So the Word of the LORD to them will be, order on order, order on order, line on line, line on line a little here, a little there, that they may go and stumble backward, be broken, snared and taken captive. (Isa 28:9-13) cf. (1Co 14:21)     

     For thus said the LORD GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said, In a change of mind and Rest you will be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength. But you were not willing. (Isa 30:15) 

     Thus says the LORD, Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find Rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk in it. (Jer 6:16) 

     Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy- laden, and I will give you Rest. Take My yoke [Spiritual life] upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find Rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden light. [To reach Spiritual maturity] (Mat 11:28-30)  

     So there remains a Sabbath Rest for the people of God. For the one who has entered His Rest has himself also rested from his own thoughts as God did from His. Therefore let us be diligent to enter that Rest, [Spiritual maturity] so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience. [Unbelief of God's Word] For the Word of God is alive and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all thoughts are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to answer to. (Heb 4:9-13)    
 The Word of God

     In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God! (Joh 1:1)

     And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and Truth. (Joh 1:14)

     For HE whom God has sent speaks the Words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure. (Joh 3:34)

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing, the Words that I have spoken to you are Spirit and are life. (Joh 6:63)

Even Jesus; in is perfect HUMAN NATURE!

     And someone came to Him and said, Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?" And He said to him, Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the Commandments. [Stay in fellowship] (Mat 19:16-17)

     As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and asked Him, Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" And Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. (Mar 10:17-18)

     A ruler questioned Him, saying, Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" And Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. (Luk 18:18-19)

    He who speaks from his own nature seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. (Joh 7:18)

     Sanctify them in Truth; Your Word is Truth! (Joh 17:17)   

     If indeed you have Heard Him and have been Taught in Him, just as Truth is in Jesus, that in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the New self, which in the likeness of God is being created in righteousness [In fellowship] and holiness [Integrity] of the Truth. (Eph 4:21-24) 

     What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life! (1Jn 1:1) 

     But know this first of all, that no Teaching of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no Recorded Scripture was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit Spoke From God. (2Pe 1:20-21)

     All Scripture is God Breathed and profitable for Teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may become Spiritual mature, equipped for every good work. (2Ti 3:16) 
     For the Kingdom of God does not consist in human words but Divine power. (1Co 4:20) 

     And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who Hears the Word and Understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty. (Mat 13:23)
