“The Prince of Peace”

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matthew 5:9

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6,7

5 And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. Micah 5:5

18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Romans 12:18

6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. Psalms 120:6

20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land. Psalms 35:20

8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. Isaiah 59:8

15 We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble! Jeremiah 8:15

11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 1 Peter 3:11

“no respect of persons”

 

7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7

8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. Galatians 3:8

3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils; Job 27:3

7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Ecclesiastes 12:7

5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. Isaiah 32:5

9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; Romans 2:9

8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand. Isaiah 32:8

25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:25

13 Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men; 2 Corinthians 9:13

11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. Colossians 3:11

12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. Romans 10:12

32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: 1 Corinthians 10:32

21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly: Luke 20:21

19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God. Luke 18:19

4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? James 2:4

39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. John 9:39

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 1 Corinthians 1:22

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:24

17 And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. Acts 19:17

21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 20:21

17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 1 Peter 1:17

21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man’s person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. Job 32:21

11 For there is no respect of persons with God. Romans 2:11

9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. James 2:9

25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons. Colossians 3:25

10 He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons. Job 13:10

7 Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts. 2 Chronicles 19:7

9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him. Ephesians 6:9

17 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: Deuteronomy 10:17

 

 

 

“God is love”

amor1

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4:7

8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. John 15:9

10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. John 15:10

12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12

17 These things I command you, that ye love one another. John 15:17

21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. 1 John 4:21

2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Ephesians 4:2

35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:35

6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 2 John 1:6

8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8

5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 1 Timothy 1:5

10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Romans 13:10

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. John 14:21

10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Romans 12:10

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Hebrews 10:24

22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 1 Peter 1:22

1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 1 John 5:1

8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:13

1 Let brotherly love continue. Hebrews 13:1

“the children of light”

 

7 Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun: Ecclesiastes 11:7

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:4

5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. John 9:5

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: Ephesians 5:8

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. John 12:36

3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12:3

6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Psalm 37:6

6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; Isaiah 42:6

10 The LORD hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God. Jeremiah 51:10

23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: Proverbs 6:23

2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Isaiah 9:2

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. John 3:20

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Ephesians 5:13

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. Proverbs 4:18

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10

21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour. Proverbs 21:21

31 The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness. Proverbs 16:31

 

 

 

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise”

Milky Way

3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 2 Peter 3:3-14

“Peace, be still.”

Jesus acalma a tempestade

 

30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?

31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

32 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.

33 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.

34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? Mark 4:30-41

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. Mark 11:22

5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. Luke 17:5

6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Zechariah 4:6

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Psalm 37:7

3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them. Psalm 44:3

15 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not. Isaiah 30:15

11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. Hebrews 4:11

11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Exodus 20:11

4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. Isaiah 64:4

3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, Isaiah 14:3

18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; Isaiah 32:18
