The things which are. – Rev 1:19

Now we see through a glass, darkly.—Now we see not yet all things put under him.

We have … a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.—Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; how that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.—The Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.

Little children, it is the last time.—The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

The measure of faith. – Rom 12:3

O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?—Great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.

Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord … According to your faith be it unto you.

Lord, increase our faith.—Building up yourselves on your most holy faith.—Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith.—He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, … is God.—The God of all grace … after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

We … that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.—Let us not … judge one another … but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

“’When will I arise?’ and the night stretches on.”

[Job 7:4 NET]

“Watchman, what is left of the night?” The watchman replies, “Morning is coming.”

For just a little longer and he who is coming will arrive and not delay.—“[He] is like the light of morning when the sun comes up, a morning in which there are no clouds.”

“There are many dwelling places in my Father’s house. Otherwise, I would have told you, because I am going away to make ready a place for you. And if I go and make ready a place for you, I will come again and take you to be with me, so that where I am you may be too. Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage. You heard me say to you, ’I am going away and I am coming back to you.’”

“May all your enemies perish like this, O Lord! But may those who love you shine like the rising sun at its brightest!”—For you all are sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of the darkness.

There will be no night there.

They are without fault before the throne of God. – Rev 14:5

The iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.—Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

He hath made us accepted in the beloved.—To present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

The apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things they had done. – Mark 6:30

There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.—The Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend.—Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

When ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants.

Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

In every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.—The prayer of the upright is his delight.

Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. – Ps 141:3

If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?—They provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.

Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

A whisperer separateth chief friends.—There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.—The tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

Put off … anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds.—This is the will of God, even your sanctification.—In their mouth was found no guile.

There remaineth yet very much land to be possessed. – Josh 13:1

Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

Be ye therefore perfect.—Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment.

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit.

There remaineth … a rest for the people of God.—Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.
