 In the video above, Roma Downey, who is known mostly for her role that she played as an angel named Monica in the series, ‘TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL’ which ran from September of 1994 until April of 2003, sent out a message to church leaders concerning the series that she and her husband, Mark Burnett produced, entitled, ‘A. D . The Bible Continues,’ which premiered on Easter Sunday 2015 on NBC.  She excitedly informs church leaders that,

“A. D. tells the epic story of the birth of the church…” “It stars the Holy Spirit. And it’s exciting that all the stories from Acts — Chapters 1 through 10 — are included in season 1.”

Here is more of her video message:

“We can’t wait to bring this beloved book of the Bible to life on prime time network television What a fantastic opportunity for your church to be a part of the national conversation and to go deeper with some of the resources provided by OUTREACH. So be sure to pick up the official A. D. church kit, and the official study and guide book…” “And as you make plans for a 12 week campaign in tandem with the series, please allow this trailer to inspire you and to give you vision on how you can use this in your church.”

Sounds pretty exciting, right? And, as Christians we should be excited to think that the book of Acts will be presented on prime time television so that many who have never even read the Bible can see the amazing things that happened after the Holy Spirit filled the apostles with boldness to preach the gospel fearlessly! What a contrast to how they had been hiding in fear behind locked doors as John 20:19 reveals to us!

All these pastors are excited about ‘A. D. The Bible Continues,’ as you can see from their tweets and endorsements below:

Soon after I found out about this new series, I came across THIS ARTICLE by Stand Up For The Truth, which is entitled, ‘A. D. WILL YOUR CHURCH BE BUYING THE ROMA DOWNEY SERMON KIT?’ I knew that my new pastor was not promoting ‘A. D. Bible Continues,’ and I was truly hoping that my former pastor, James MacDonald, of Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows was not one of the many who were endorsing these programs. But sadly, as you can see from what I soon discovered, he was also highly endorsing them:

Right now some of you are probably asking,

“So, what’s the problem?”

Well, to answer those of you who may have that question, I am presenting you with a lot of information to make you all realize, once again, the extreme importance of praying for discernment and the need for us always to test not only the things that people say and do who claim to speak for God against the truth of His Word, but also the importance of testing what we read and hear against the truth of God’s Word. We can’t just accept something wholeheartedly based on the fact that our pastor, or a certain teacher who might be highly respected by many, may be promoting something or someone.

Above is a two part video presentation of the article that I originally saw posted on LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH which was written by Gregory Reid, entitled: CONFUSED BY AN ANGEL: THE DILEMMA OF ROMA DOWNEY’S NEW AGE BELIEFS, Here is just a little of what you will discover about Roma Downey if you watch the video or read the article:

1) Roma Downey is a devout Roman Catholic who prays to Mary.

2)Roma Downey graduated from USM, University of Santa Monica, which is a New Age Metaphysical school.

3)Roma Downey endorsed a New Age book, entitled, ‘Loyalty to Your Soul.’ Here are two excerpts from the book:

“When people speak of spirituality, they simply mean awareness of the sacred reality of the Divine Essence within and beyond all creation. (Page 8 quoting favorably a New Age “spiritual teacher”)

“You begin to recognize others as Divine Beings, and the situations and circumstances in life as learning devices.” (Page 31)

I encourage you to watch the two part video series above or read the article at the link above so that you can learn many even more alarming things concerning Roma Downey. I also ask you to please pray for Roma, as well as for her husband, Mark Burnett, that they might both come to the knowledge of true Biblical Christianity and who Jesus Christ truly is as God’s Word reveals Him to be.

I am saddened and shocked to see the lack of Biblical discernment among prominent pastors and teachers these days! I realize that many pastors are overloaded with responsibilities, but that is no excuse for them to endorse something without testing it against the truth of God’s Word.

Even more frightening is the thought that many pastors who are endorsing these programs fail to see the problems with what is being presented in these programs!  They have the responsibility to ‘earnestly contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints,’ (Jude 3) and to ‘keep watch over themselves and all the flock of God of which the Holy Spirit has made them overseers.’ (Acts 20:28) As teachers they are even more accountable to God! (James 3:1)

Thankfully there are many godly pastors and teachers and other Christians who do see the serious problems in these programs!   Here are some of their reviews of ‘A. D. The Bible Continues.’

WHERE IS OUR DISCERNMENT

I saw the need to write this post to, once again, stress the importance for all of us who are Christians to follow Jesus Christ alone. We as Christians must think for ourselves and not accept anyone’s endorsement of another pastor or teacher, or a program, book, movie, etc., without checking everything out for ourselves first and praying for discernment as we test everything in light of Scripture.

What a person believes will have a strong influence on what they write and produce. Yes, we much leave room for artistic license, but if you take the time to read all the reviews and articles, and watch the videos that I posted below for you, you will come to the realization, along with many other Christians, that Roma Downey and her husband, Mark Burnett, are presenting another Jesus and another gospel; a Jesus and a gospel that easily appeals to all religious faiths –except for true Biblical Christianity in many respects.

As Christians, we can, however, watch programs like these and use them as opportunities to not only become Bereans by testing the content against the truth of God’s Word to see if what is being said is true (Acts 17:11), but also we can use them as opportunities to  begin conversations with other people who are watching these programs. Whether they are unbelievers, or Christians who have not come to realize the importance of reading and studying God’s Word on a regular basis and therefore lack the discernment necessary to know truth from error, we can simply begin by asking people if they watch these programs, and, if they do, we can ask them to share their thoughts with us about them. Then, if we discover that they truly enjoyed these programs and they don’t express any concerns about what important things were  missing, and what was added that caused them to be concerned, then we will know that we need to pray for God to give us wisdom on how to respond to their comments. With humility and gentleness we can then begin by pointing out some of the truths and amazing things that are in Scripture that we noticed were missing from what was portrayed in each episode, as well as the problematic things that were added that could lead people away from having a true understanding of who Jesus Christ is and what the good news of the gospel is, as well.

I hope you are learning — along with me — the importance of not only thinking for yourself and searching things out, but also the extreme importance of testing everything against the truth of God’s Word so that you will never be deceived.

Thank you for stopping by, and thank you very much for taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” (Acts 17:11)

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”    (2 Corinthians 11:3,4)

“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel — which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned.” (Galatians 1:6-9)

“Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again. Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and days with tears.”                    (Acts 20:25-31)

“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:13,14)

“Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” (1 Timothy 4:16)

“The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1)

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.  In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke, and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn and turn aside to myths.” (2 Timothy 3:16 – 4:1-4)

For those of us who not only have come to an understanding of our sinfulness and God’s righteousness, but also have come to the point of putting our complete trust in what Jesus did when He willingly died in our place for our sins and we no longer place our trust in our ‘good works’ hoping to earn God’s forgiveness and love, our hearts are filled with gratefulness –especially at this time of year. When we realize that Jesus — God in the flesh — willingly allowed God, His Father, to pour out His wrath intended for us because of our sins upon Himself, it causes us to stand in awe and amazement at His love and undeserved grace and mercy! And as much as we may have a renewed appreciation for His willingness to die for us, and even though we may greatly rejoice in a deeper way on Resurrection Sunday for what He accomplished for us, oftentimes many of us don’t take enough time to reflect upon the excruciating pain that Jesus willingly endured on our behalf for our sins that once condemned us and separated us from a completely Holy God.

Around seven years ago I watched a video of a physician who explained in great detail the effects of crucifixion on the human body, thus revealing the unimaginable pain that Jesus must have gone through when He was crucified. It made me realize just how much Jesus suffered on my behalf to pay the debt for my sins. So today when I saw the following article that was posted by Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis I decided to share it with you hoping that it would cause your love and appreciation for what Jesus did for you to grow deeper, as well. When time allows, I hope you’ll consider taking some time to continue reading this deeply thought-provoking article, and I hope and pray that God will move upon your heart and give you a better grasp of the depth of the love that God has for you.

For those of you who have not yet come to the understanding of your need for a Savior, I pray that ‘God’s kindness will lead you to repentance,’ and that one day you will place your trust in Christ alone for your salvation and come to know the love, forgiveness, mercy, and grace of God, as well.

Please remember that only reading God’s Word can reveal His truth and His love to you, and ‘faith comes by hearing God’s Word’ (Romans 10:17) and not by having ‘experiences,’ but I thought that this article, as well as the many Scriptures I also posted for you, would be perfect to share with all of you today.

A PHYSICIANS PERSPECTIVE ON WHAT JESUS ENDURED ON OUR BEHALF

From the Garden of Gethsemane to His last moments on the cross, Jesus — God in the flesh — took God the Father’s wrath intended for us because of our sins upon Himself, and died in our place. Is your trust in what you do, or have you placed your trust in what Jesus has already done for you?

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way;and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,and he will divide the spoils with the strong,because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53:1-12)

“I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted within me. My mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death. Dogs surround me, a pack of villains encircles me; they pierce my hands and my feet. All my bones are on display; people stare and gloat over me. They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.” (Psalm 22:14-18)

“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John testified concerning Him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because He was before me.’ ”) Out of His fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is Himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made Him known.” (John 1:9-18)

“And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.” (1 John 5:11,12)

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.” (John 3:36)

“Or do you show contempt for the riches of His kindness, forbearance, and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4)

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord…” (Acts 3:19)

“Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.” (Romans 4:4-8)

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.”                (Romans 5:1-12)

“But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5:15-19)

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” (1 Peter 3:18)

“When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having cancelled the written code with its regulations that was against us and that stood opposed to us; He took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”         (Colossians 2:13-15)

“I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” (Galatians 2:21)

LAWYER, SIR EDWARD CLARKE, EXAMINES THE EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

 

For those of you who are Christians and you’re finding yourself struggling with the decision if you should or shouldn’t go and see Darren Aronofsky’s ‘NOAH,’ I thought I’d post this live movie review (at least it’s ‘live’ at the time I’m writing this) and other videos and links to articles concerning the ‘NOAH’ movie that I thought might help you make your decision. 

There are many conflicting reports out there, some even given by popular Christian leaders.  However, because I know Ken Ham and those he chose to be a part of this review panel will give you a very Biblical and accurate review, I am hoping that by watching this review, as well as watching the other videos with very Biblical information that I posted for you,  that you will then finally be able to make your decision. 

If you do decide to go and see it, you will then know for yourself who has given the most honest and accurate review.  Yes, they were given artistic license, but they claimed to stay true to the Biblical text.  And according to the many who have seen it, as you will see from the information posted below, that is simply not true. 

We live at a time, as the Bible declares, when many scoff at the idea that Jesus will actually return, and many also choose to believe in the theory of evolution as a fact.  We also live at a time when everything that God calls evil, many now embrace as acceptable and normal.  And that describes exactly what the Bible says will be man’s thoughts and behavior right before Christ returns! 

Time for everyone to think about their eternal destiny and to take God at His Word and repent, because tomorrow is promised to no one!

God bless you, and thank you for stopping by.  And thank you also for taking time to read my posts and poems.

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.  And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth Me that I have made them.  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”  (Genesis 6:5-8) KJV

“And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.”  (Genesis 7:1) KJV

“Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.  For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine.  Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.  They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”  (2 Timothy 4:2-4)

“First of all , you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.  They will say,  “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised?  Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”  But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s Word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and with water.  By water also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.  By the same Word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.  But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.  The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise as some understand slowness.  He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.  But the day of the Lord will come like a thief.  The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.  Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be?  You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.  That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.  But in keeping with His promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.  So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless, and at peace with Him.”  (2 Peter 3:3-14)

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.  Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.  This is the verdict:  Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.  Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.  But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”          (John 3:16-21)

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  (Romans 5:8)

“This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”  (1 John 4:9,10)

ANY ADVERTISEMENTS THAT YOU MAY SEE ON MY BLOG HAVE NOT BEEN CHOSEN OR APPROVED BY ME; I CANNOT EVEN SEE THEM.

Well, it’s being called ‘The Debate of the Decade’ and even ‘of the Century,’ and it takes place tonight at 7PM eastern, 6PM central at the Creation Museum.  Ken Ham, a creationist and Bill Nye, an evolutionist, will be debating on the topic ‘Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era.’ The moderator for the debate will be Tom Foreman of CNN.

You can either watch it live here on YouTube…

 

…or you can also watch the live streamed event HERE

Below is a ‘quick capture’ from their site:

Capture Bill Nye Debates Ken HamSOURCE

In the video below, Ken Ham gives a clear explanation of why it is that we are seeing such drastic moral changes taking place in our nation and in our world.  Basically it’s because we have allowed the culture to change the church, and we have not properly taught our children how to defend Biblical truth.  Instead of the church having an impact on the culture, we have stood by and allowed the culture to attack the foundation of the authority of the Word of God, and many of us are not doing anything about it!  Please take time to listen to this very insightful and important message!

Those of you who are true followers of Christ — born of the Spirit of God — I ask that you would please join me in praying for Ken as he takes a stand for Biblical truth tonight.  There will definitely be a spiritual battle (Ephesians 6:12) taking place as Ken faces Bill Nye.  Please pray that God will be glorified through all that Ken will say and do tonight.  Pray for God to prepare many hearts and minds to receive the truth, and that many will come to search the Scriptures for themselves and realize just how many ‘scientific’ truths were recorded in the Bible, God’s Word, long before these truths came to be known, such as:

The earth is round, and not flat:

“He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth.”  (Isaiah 40:22a)

Our universe is expanding/stretching out:

“It is He that stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in.”  (Isaiah 40:22b)

Believing that there is a God who loves us and who created us and the world around us with such thought and in such amazing ways, gives hope and meaning to a person, instead of teaching them a theory with no solid evidence; there may be telling them they evolved from apes or from “primordial soup.”  Ugh!

Please take a hard look at the facts and think for yourself:

 

Lord willing, within the next few days I hope to have my previous post finished, but I wanted to take the time to make all of you aware of this debate, and to ask you to please be praying for Ken Ham.

Thank you very much for stopping by, and thank you very much for taking time to read my posts and poems. God bless you.

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.  Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.  In Him was life, and that life was the light of all men.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.    (John 1:1-5)

“The true light that gives light to all men was coming into the world.  He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him.  He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him.  Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become the children of God — children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or of a husband’s will, but born of God.  The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.  We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  (John 1:9-14)

“For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of  the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created; things in heave and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, all things were created by Him and for Him.  He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”  (Colossians 1:13-17)

“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things and through whom He made the universe.  The Son is the radiance of God’s Glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful Word.  After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.”  (Hebrews 1:1-3)

“O LORD, You have searched me and You know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is on my tongue You know it completely, O LORD.  You hem me in — behind and before; You have laid Your hand upon me.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.  Where can I go from Your Spirit?  Where can I flee from Your presence?  If I go up to the heavens,You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.  If I say,  “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You.  For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place.  When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.  How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God!  How vast is the sum of them!  Were I to count them they would outnumber the grains of sand.”  (Psalm 139:1-18a)

“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.  For in the gospel, a righteousness  from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”  The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — His eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”  (Romans 1:16-20)

“When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?”  (Psalm 11:3)

“Always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.  But do this with gentleness and respect…”  (1 Peter 3:15b)

“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”                                     (Ephesians 6:11-13)
