Exodus 20:7      YOU SHALL NOT RECEIVE/TAKE THE NAME OF JESUS YOUR THEOS (Alpha & Omega) IN VAIN; FOR JESUS YOUR THEOS WILL NOT ACQUIT HIM THAT RECEIVES/TAKES HIS NAME IN VAIN.

Exodus 23:20-21      AND, BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER BEFORE YOUR FACE, THAT HE MAY KEEP YOU IN THE WAY, THAT HE MAY BRING YOU INTO THE LAND WHICH I HAVE PREPARED FOR YOU.
    TAKE CARE TO YOURSELF TO LISTEN & OBEY AND LISTEN TO AND OBEY HIM, AND DO NOT DISOBEY HIM; FOR HE WILL NOT GIVE WAY TO YOU, FOR MY NAME IS ON HIM.

Proverbs 9:7-9      HE THAT REPROVES EVIL MEN SHALL GET DISHONOUR TO HIMSELF; AND HE THAT REBUKES AN UNGODLY MAN SHALL DISGRACE HIMSELF.
    REBUKE NOT EVIL MEN, LEST THEY SHOULD HATE YOU: REBUKE A WISE MAN, AND HE WILL LOVE YOU.
    GIVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO A WISE MAN, AND HE WILL BE WISER: INSTRUCT A RIGHTEOUS MAN, AND HE WILL RECEIVE MORE INSTRUCTION.

Proverbs 12:18      SOME WOUND AS THEY SPEAK, LIKE SWORDS; BUT THE TONGUES OF THE WISE HEAL.

Proverbs 15:12      AN UNINSTRUCTED PERSON WILL NOT LOVE THOSE THAT REPROVE HIM; NEITHER WILL HE ASSOCIATE WITH THE WISE.

Proverbs 16:23-24      THE HEART OF THE WISE WILL DISCERN THE THINGS WHICH PROCEED FROM HIS OWN MOUTH; AND ON HIS LIPS HE WILL WEAR KNOWLEDGE.
    GOOD WORDS ARE HONEYCOMBS, AND THE SWEETNESS THEREOF IS A HEALING OF THE SOUL.

Proverbs 17:4      A BAD MAN HEARKENS TO THE TONGUE OF TRANSGRESSORS: BUT A RIGHTEOUS MAN ATTENDS NOT TO FALSE LIPS.

Proverbs 17:27-28      HE THAT FORBEARS TO UTTER A HARD WORD IS DISCREET, AND A PATIENT MAN IS WISE.
    WISDOM SHALL BE IMPUTED TO A FOOL WHO ASKS AFTER WISDOM: AND HE WHO HOLDS HIS PEACE SHALL SEEM TO BE SENSIBLE.

Proverbs 21:2      EVERY MAN SEEMS TO HIMSELF RIGHTEOUS; BUT JESUS DIRECTS THE HEARTS.

Proverbs 24:28      DO NOT BE A FALSE WITNESS AGAINST YOUR FELLOW CITIZEN, NEITHER EXAGGERATE WITH YOUR LIPS.

Proverbs 27:18      HE THAT PLANTS A FIG-TREE SHALL EAT THE FRUITS OF IT: SO HE THAT WAITS ON HIS OWN MASTER SHALL BE HONOURED.

Proverbs 28:6      A POOR MAN WALKING IN TRUTH IS BETTER THAN A RICH LIAR.

Proverbs 29:20      IF YOU SEE A MAN SWIFT IN HIS WORDS, KNOW THAT THE FOOL HAS HOPE RATHER THAN HE.

Sirach 4:23      AND REFRAIN NOT TO SPEAK, WHEN THERE IS OCCASION TO DO GOOD, AND HIDE NOT YOUR WISDOM IN HER BEAUTY.

Sirach 6:32-36      MY SON, IF YOU WILL, YOU SHALL BE TAUGHT: AND IF YOU WILL APPLY YOUR MIND, YOU SHALL BE PRUDENT.
    IF YOU LOVE TO HEAR, YOU SHALL RECEIVE UNDERSTANDING: AND IF YOU BOW YOUR EAR, YOU SHALL BE WISE,
    STAND IN THE MULTITUDE OF THE ELDERS; AND CLEAVE UNTO HIM THAT IS WISE.
    BE WILLING TO HEAR EVERY GODLY DISCOURSE; AND LET NOT THE PARABLES OF UNDERSTANDING ESCAPE YOU.
    AND IF YOU SEE A MAN OF UNDERSTANDING, GET YOU BESIDE UNTO HIM, AND LET YOUR FOOT WEAR THE STEPS OF HIS DOOR.

Sirach 20:18-20      TO SLIP UPON A PAVEMENT IS BETTER THAN TO SLIP WITH THE TONGUE: SO THE FALL OF THE WICKED SHALL COME SPEEDILY.
    AN UNSEASONABLE TALE WILL ALWAYS BE IN THE MOUTH OF THE UNWISE.
    A WISE SENTENCE SHALL BE REJECTED WHEN IT COMES OUT OF A FOOL'S MOUTH; FOR HE WILL NOT SPEAK IT IN DUE SEASON.

Sirach 20:32      NECESSARY PATIENCE IN SEEKING THE LORD IS BETTER THAN HE THAT LEADS HIS LIFE WITHOUT A GUIDE.

Sirach 21:12      HE THAT IS NOT WISE WILL NOT BE TAUGHT: BUT THERE IS A WISDOM WHICH MULTIPLIES BITTERNESS.

Matthew 3:13-15      THEN JESUS ARRIVED FROM GALILEE AT THE JORDAN river TO JOHN, TO BE IMMERSED/BAPTIZED BY HIM.
    BUT JOHN TRIED TO PREVENT HIM, SAYING, "I HAVE NEED TO BE IMMERSED/BAPTIZED BY YOU, AND DO YOU COME TO ME?"
    BUT JESUS ANSWERING SAID TO HIM, "PERMIT IT AT THIS TIME; FOR IN THIS WAY IT IS FITTING FOR US TO FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS." THEN HE PERMITTED HIM.

Matthew 4:19-20      AND HE SAID TO THEM, "FOLLOW ME, AND I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF PEOPLE."
    IMMEDIATELY THEY LEFT THEIR NETS AND FOLLOWED HIM!

Matthew 5:14-16      YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A CITY SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN;
    NOR DOES ANYONE LIGHT A LAMP AND PUT IT UNDER A BASKET, BUT ON THE LAMP-STAND, AND IT GIVES LIGHT TO ALL WHO ARE IN THE HOUSE.
    LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE PEOPLE IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS, AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN.

Matthew 5:19      "WHOEVER THEN BREAKS ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE COMMANDMENTS, AND TEACHES PEOPLE THE SAME, SHALL BE CALLED LEAST BY THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; BUT WHOEVER KEEPS AND TEACHES THEM, HE SHALL BE CALLED GREAT BY THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN."

Matthew 7:6      DO NOT GIVE WHAT IS HOLY TO DOGS, AND DO NOT THROW YOUR PEARLS BEFORE SWINE, OR THEY WILL TRAMPLE THEM UNDER THEIR FEET, AND TURN AND TEAR YOU TO PIECES.

Matthew 7:15-16      BEWARE OF THE FALSE PROPHETS, WHO COME TO YOU IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY ARE RAVENOUS WOLVES.
    YOU WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. GRAPES ARE NOT GATHERED FROM THORN BUSHES NOR FIGS FROM THISTLES, ARE THEY?

Matthew 7:21-23      NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, 'LORD, LORD,' WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN will enter.
    MANY WILL SAY TO ME ON THAT DAY, 'LORD, LORD, DID WE NOT PROPHESY IN YOUR NAME, AND IN YOUR NAME CAST OUT DEMONS, AND IN YOUR NAME PERFORM MANY MIRACLES?'
    AND THEN I WILL DECLARE TO THEM, 'I NEVER KNEW YOU; GET AWAY FROM ME, YOU WHO WORK AT BREAKING THE LAW.'"

Matthew 9:37-38      THEN HE SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, "THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL, BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW.
    THEREFORE PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND OUT WORKERS INTO HIS HARVEST."

Matthew 13:52      AND JESUS SAID TO THEM, "THEREFORE EVERY SCRIBE WHO HAS BECOME A DISCIPLE OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE A HEAD OF A HOUSEHOLD, WHO BRINGS OUT OF HIS TREASURE THINGS NEW AND OLD."

Matthew 18:6      BUT WHOEVER CAUSES ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES WHO BELIEVE IN ME TO STUMBLE, IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR HIM TO HAVE A HEAVY DONKEY-MOVED MILLSTONE HUNG AROUND HIS NECK, AND TO BE DROWNED IN THE DEPTH OF THE SEA.

Matthew 24:9-12      THEN THEY WILL DELIVER YOU TO TRIBULATION, AND WILL MURDER YOU, AND YOU WILL BE HATED BY ALL NATIONS BECAUSE OF MY NAME.
    AT THAT TIME MANY WILL FALL AWAY AND WILL BETRAY ONE ANOTHER AND HATE ONE ANOTHER.
    MANY FALSE PROPHETS WILL ARISE AND WILL DECEIVE MANY.
    BECAUSE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW WILL INCREASE, MOST PEOPLE'S LOVE WILL GROW COLD."

Matthew 24:23-26      "THEN IF ANYONE SAYS TO YOU, 'BEHOLD, HERE IS THE CHRIST,' OR 'THERE,' DO NOT BELIEVE it.
    BECAUSE FALSE CHRISTS AND FALSE PROPHETS WILL ARISE AND WILL SHOW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS, SO AS TO DECEIVE, IF POSSIBLE, EVEN THE ELECT.
    BEHOLD, I HAVE TOLD YOU IN ADVANCE.
    SO IF THEY SAY TO YOU, 'BEHOLD, HE IS IN THE WILDERNESS', DO NOT GO OUT, OR 'BEHOLD, HE IS IN THE INNER ROOMS', DO NOT BELIEVE them.

Mark 4:10-11      AS SOON AS HE WAS ALONE, HIS FOLLOWERS, ALONG WITH THE TWELVE, ASKED HIM about THE PARABLES.
    AND HE WAS SAYING TO THEM, "TO YOU HAS BEEN GIVEN THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), BUT THOSE WHO ARE OUTSIDE GET EVERYTHING IN PARABLES,

Luke 4:24-27      AND HE SAID, "I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, NO PROPHET IS WELCOME IN HIS HOMETOWN.
    BUT I SAY TO YOU IN TRUTH, THERE WERE MANY WIDOWS IN JESRAEL IN THE DAYS OF ELIAS (Elijah), WHEN THE SKY WAS SHUT UP FOR THREE YEARS AND SIX MONTHS, WHEN A GREAT FAMINE CAME OVER ALL THE LAND;
    AND YET ELIAS (Elijah) WAS SENT TO NONE OF THEM, BUT ONLY TO ZAREPHATH, in the land OF SIDON, TO A WOMAN WHO WAS A WIDOW.
    AND THERE WERE MANY LEPERS IN JESRAEL IN THE TIME OF ELISHA THE PROPHET; AND NONE OF THEM WAS CLEANSED, BUT ONLY NAAMAN THE SYRIAN."

Luke 6:39-46      AND HE ALSO SPOKE A PARABLE TO THEM: "A BLIND MAN CANNOT GUIDE A BLIND MAN, CAN HE? WILL THEY NOT BOTH FALL INTO A PIT?
    A PUPIL IS NOT ABOVE HIS TEACHER; BUT EVERYONE, AFTER HE HAS BEEN FULLY TRAINED, WILL BE LIKE HIS TEACHER.
    WHY DO YOU LOOK AT THE SPECK THAT IS IN YOUR BROTHER'S EYE, BUT DO NOT NOTICE THE LOG THAT IS IN YOUR OWN EYE?
    OR HOW CAN YOU SAY TO YOUR BROTHER, 'BROTHER, LET ME TAKE OUT THE SPECK THAT IS IN YOUR EYE,' WHEN YOU YOURSELF DO NOT SEE THE LOG THAT IS IN YOUR OWN EYE? YOU HYPOCRITE, FIRST TAKE THE LOG OUT OF YOUR OWN EYE, AND THEN YOU WILL SEE CLEARLY TO TAKE OUT THE SPECK THAT IS IN YOUR BROTHER'S EYE.
    FOR THERE IS NO GOOD TREE WHICH PRODUCES CORRUPTED FRUIT, NOR, ON THE OTHER HAND, A CORRUPTED TREE WHICH PRODUCES GOOD FRUIT.
    FOR EACH TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS OWN FRUIT. FOR MEN DO NOT GATHER FIGS FROM THORNS, NOR DO THEY PICK GRAPES FROM A BRIER BUSH.
    THE GOOD PERSON OUT OF THE GOOD TREASURE OF HIS HEART BRINGS FORTH WHAT IS GOOD; AND THE EVIL person OUT OF THE EVIL treasure BRINGS FORTH WHAT IS EVIL; FOR HIS MOUTH SPEAKS FROM THAT WHICH FILLS HIS HEART.
    WHY DO YOU CALL ME, 'LORD, LORD,' AND DO NOT DO WHAT I SAY?

Luke 12:1      UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, AFTER SO MANY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAD GATHERED TOGETHER THAT THEY WERE STEPPING ON ONE ANOTHER, HE BEGAN SAYING TO HIS DISCIPLES FIRST: "BEWARE OF THE LEAVEN OF THE PHARISEES, WHICH IS HYPOCRISY.

Luke 14:7-11      AND HE SPOKE A PARABLE TO THE INVITED GUESTS WHEN HE NOTICED HOW THEY HAD BEEN PICKING OUT THE PLACES OF HONOUR at the table, SAYING TO THEM,
    "WHEN YOU ARE INVITED BY SOMEONE TO A WEDDING, DO NOT TAKE THE PLACE OF HONOUR, FOR SOMEONE MORE DISTINGUISHED THAN YOU MAY HAVE BEEN INVITED BY HIM,
    AND HE WHO INVITED YOU BOTH WILL COME AND SAY TO YOU, 'GIVE YOUR PLACE TO THIS MAN,' AND THEN IN SHAME YOU PROCEED TO OCCUPY THE LAST PLACE.
    BUT WHEN YOU ARE INVITED, GO AND RECLINE AT THE EATING TABLE AT THE LAST PLACE, SO THAT WHEN THE ONE WHO HAS INVITED YOU COMES, HE MAY SAY TO YOU, 'FRIEND, MOVE UP HIGHER'; THEN YOU WILL HAVE HONOUR IN THE SIGHT OF ALL WHO ARE AT THE TABLE WITH YOU.
    FOR EVERYONE WHO EXALTS HIMSELF WILL BE HUMBLED, AND HE WHO HUMBLES HIMSELF WILL BE EXALTED."

Luke 17:1-2      HE SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, "IT IS NECESSARY/NEEDFUL THAT STUMBLING BLOCKS COME, BUT WOE TO HIM THROUGH WHOM THEY COME!
    IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR HIM IF A MILLSTONE WERE HUNG AROUND HIS NECK AND HE WERE THROWN INTO THE SEA, THAN THAT HE WOULD CAUSE ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES TO STUMBLE.

John 3:19-21      THIS IS THE JUDGMENT, THAT THE LIGHT HAS COME INTO THE WORLD, AND MANKIND LOVED THE DARKNESS RATHER THAN THE LIGHT, FOR THEIR WORKS WERE EVIL.
    FOR EVERYONE WHO DOES EVIL HATES THE LIGHT, AND DOES NOT COME TO THE LIGHT FOR FEAR THAT HIS WORKS WILL BE EXPOSED.
    BUT HE WHO PRACTICES THE TRUTH COMES TO THE LIGHT, SO THAT HIS WORKS MAY BE MANIFESTED AS HAVING BEEN WORKED IN THEOS (The Alpha & Omega).

John 4:38      I SENT YOU TO REAP THAT FOR WHICH YOU HAVE NOT LABOURED; OTHERS HAVE LABOURED AND YOU HAVE ENTERED INTO THEIR LABOUR.

John 5:41-44      "I DO NOT RECEIVE GLORY FROM MANKIND;
    BUT I KNOW YOU, THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE LOVE OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) IN YOURSELVES.
    "I HAVE COME IN MY FATHER'S AUTHORITY, AND YOU DO NOT RECEIVE ME; IF ANOTHER COMES IN HIS OWN AUTHORITY, YOU WILL RECEIVE HIM.
    HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE, WHEN YOU RECEIVE GLORY FROM ONE ANOTHER AND YOU DO NOT SEEK THE GLORY THAT IS FROM THE ONLY THEOS?

John 7:15-19      THE JUDEANS THEN WERE ASTONISHED, SAYING, "HOW HAS THIS MAN BECOME LEARNED, HAVING NEVER BEEN EDUCATED?"
    SO JESUS ANSWERED THEM AND SAID, "MY TEACHING IS NOT MINE, BUT HIS WHO SENT ME.
    "IF ANYONE IS WILLING TO DO HIS WILL, HE WILL KNOW OF THE TEACHING, WHETHER IT IS OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) OR I SPEAK FROM MYSELF.
    "HE WHO SPEAKS FROM HIMSELF SEEKS HIS OWN GLORY; BUT HE WHO IS SEEKING THE GLORY OF THE ONE WHO SENT HIM, HE IS TRUE, AND THERE IS NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN HIM.
    "DID NOT MOSES GIVE YOU THE LAW, AND NONE OF YOU CARRIES OUT THE LAW? WHY DO YOU SEEK TO MURDER ME?"

John 8:18      "I AM HE WHO TESTIFIES ABOUT MYSELF, AND THE FATHER WHO SENT ME TESTIFIES ABOUT ME."

John 8:44-46      "YOU ARE OF your FATHER THE DEVIL AND YOU WANT TO DO THE DESIRES OF YOUR FATHER. HE WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, AND DOES NOT STAND IN THE TRUTH BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. WHENEVER HE SPEAKS A LIE, HE SPEAKS FROM HIS OWN, FOR HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF THEM.
    "BUT BECAUSE I SPEAK THE TRUTH, YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME.
    "WHICH ONE OF YOU CONVICTS ME OF SIN? IF I SPEAK TRUTH, WHY DO YOU NOT BELIEVE ME?

John 12:26      IF ANYONE SERVES ME, HE MUST FOLLOW ME; AND WHERE I AM, THERE MY SERVANT WILL BE ALSO; IF ANYONE SERVES ME, THE FATHER WILL HONOUR HIM.

John 14:10      DO YOU NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM IN THE FATHER, AND THE FATHER IS IN ME? THE WORDS THAT I SAY TO YOU I DO NOT SPEAK ON MY OWN INITIATIVE, BUT THE FATHER ABIDING IN ME DOES HIS WORKS.

John 15:16      YOU DID NOT CHOOSE ME BUT I CHOSE YOU, AND APPOINTED YOU THAT YOU WOULD GO AND BEAR FRUIT, AND YOUR FRUIT WOULD REMAIN, SO THAT WHATEVER YOU ASK OF THE FATHER IN MY NAME HE MAY GIVE TO YOU.

1 Corinthians 12:29-31      ALL ARE NOT APOSTLES, ARE THEY? ALL ARE NOT PROPHETS, ARE THEY? ALL ARE NOT TEACHERS, ARE THEY? ALL ARE NOT workers of MIRACLES, ARE THEY?
    ALL DO NOT HAVE GIFTS OF HEALINGS, DO THEY? ALL DO NOT SPEAK WITH TONGUES, DO THEY? ALL DO NOT INTERPRET, DO THEY?
    BUT EARNESTLY DESIRE THE GREATER SPIRITUAL GIFTS. BUT YET, I WILL SHOW YOU A STILL MORE EXCELLENT WAY.

1 Corinthians 14:32      AND THE SPIRITS OF PROPHETS ARE SUBJECT TO PROPHETS;

Ephesians 4:11-12      AND HE GAVE SOME as APOSTLES, AND SOME as PROPHETS, AND SOME as EVANGELISTS, AND SOME as PASTORS AND TEACHERS,
    FOR THE EQUIPPING OF THE SAINTS FOR THE WORK OF SERVICE, TO THE BUILDING UP OF THE BODY OF CHRIST;

1 Timothy 1:4-7      NOR TO PAY ATTENTION TO MYTHS AND ENDLESS GENEALOGIES, WHICH GIVE RISE TO MERE SPECULATION RATHER THAN THE ADMINISTRATION OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) WHICH IS BY FAITH.
    BUT THE GOAL OF OUR INSTRUCTION IS LOVE FROM A PURE HEART AND A GOOD CONSCIENCE AND A SINCERE FAITH.
    FOR SOME MEN, STRAYING FROM THESE THINGS, HAVE TURNED ASIDE TO FRUITLESS DISCUSSION,
    WANTING TO BE TEACHERS OF THE LAW, EVEN THOUGH THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND EITHER WHAT THEY ARE SAYING OR THE MATTERS ABOUT WHICH THEY MAKE CONFIDENT ASSERTIONS.

1 Timothy 4:1      BUT THE SPIRIT CLEARLY SAYS THAT IN LATER TIMES SOME WILL FALL AWAY FROM THE FAITH, PAYING ATTENTION TO DECEITFUL SPIRITS AND DOCTRINES OF DEMONS,

2 Timothy 3:1-7      BUT REALIZE THIS, THAT IN THE LAST DAYS DIFFICULT TIMES WILL COME.
    FOR PEOPLE WILL BE LOVERS OF SELF, LOVERS OF MONEY, BOASTFUL, ARROGANT, REVILERS, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS, UNGRATEFUL, UNHOLY,
    UNLOVING, IRRECONCILABLE, MALICIOUS GOSSIPS, WITHOUT SELF-CONTROL, BRUTAL, HATERS OF GOOD,
    TREACHEROUS, RECKLESS, CONCEITED, LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega),
    HOLDING TO A FORM OF GODLINESS, ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE DENIED ITS POWER; AVOID SUCH MEN AS THESE.
    FOR AMONG THEM ARE THOSE WHO ENTER INTO HOUSEHOLDS AND LEAD CAPTIVE WEAK WOMEN WEIGHED DOWN WITH SINS, LED ON BY VARIOUS IMPULSES,
    ALWAYS LEARNING AND NEVER ABLE TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.

James 3:1-14      LET NOT MANY of you BECOME TEACHERS, MY BRETHREN, KNOWING THAT AS SUCH WE WILL INCUR A STRICTER JUDGMENT.
    FOR WE ALL STUMBLE IN MANY ways. IF ANYONE DOES NOT STUMBLE IN WHAT HE SAYS, HE IS A PERFECT MAN, ABLE TO BRIDLE THE ENTIRE BODY AS WELL.
    NOW IF WE PUT THE BITS INTO THE HORSES' MOUTHS SO THAT THEY WILL OBEY US, WE DIRECT THEIR ENTIRE BODY AS WELL.
    LOOK AT THE SHIPS ALSO, THOUGH THEY ARE SO GREAT AND ARE DRIVEN BY STRONG WINDS, ARE STILL DIRECTED BY A VERY SMALL RUDDER WHEREVER THE INCLINATION OF THE PILOT DESIRES.
    SO ALSO THE TONGUE IS A SMALL PART OF THE BODY, AND yet IT BOASTS OF GREAT THINGS. SEE HOW GREAT A FOREST IS SET AFLAME BY SUCH A SMALL FIRE!
    AND THE TONGUE IS A FIRE, THE very WORLD OF INIQUITY; THE TONGUE IS SET AMONG OUR MEMBERS AS THAT WHICH DEFILES THE ENTIRE BODY, AND SETS ON FIRE THE COURSE OF our LIFE, AND IS SET ON FIRE BY GEHENNA.
    FOR EVERY SPECIES OF BEASTS AND BIRDS, OF REPTILES AND CREATURES OF THE SEA, IS TAMED AND HAS BEEN TAMED BY THE HUMAN RACE.
    BUT NO ONE CAN TAME THE TONGUE; it is A RESTLESS EVIL and FULL OF DEADLY POISON.
    WITH IT WE BLESS our LORD AND FATHER, AND WITH IT WE CURSE PEOPLE, WHO HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE LIKENESS OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega);
    FROM THE SAME MOUTH COME both BLESSING AND CURSING. MY BRETHREN, THESE THINGS OUGHT NOT TO BE THIS WAY.
    DOES A FOUNTAIN SEND OUT FROM THE SAME OPENING both FRESH AND BITTER water?
    CAN A FIG TREE, MY BRETHREN, PRODUCE OLIVES, OR A VINE PRODUCE FIGS? NOR can SALT WATER PRODUCE FRESH.
    WHO AMONG YOU IS WISE AND UNDERSTANDING? LET HIM SHOW BY HIS GOOD BEHAVIOUR HIS WORKS IN THE GENTLENESS OF WISDOM.
    BUT IF YOU HAVE BITTER JEALOUSY AND SELFISH AMBITION IN YOUR HEART, DO NOT BE ARROGANT AND thereby LIE AGAINST THE TRUTH.

Revelation 12:9      AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS THROWN DOWN, THE SERPENT OF OLD WHO IS CALLED THE DEVIL AND SATAN, WHO DECEIVES THE ENTIRE WORLD; HE WAS THROWN DOWN TO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE THROWN DOWN WITH HIM.
