“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and ALL that is within me bless his Holy Name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not his benefits, who forgives ALL your iniquity, who heals ALL your diseases, who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good as long as you live so that your youth is renewed” Psalm 103:1-5
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us IN CHRIST with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as God chose us IN HIM before the foundation of the world, that we should BE holy and blameless before him. He destined us in love to BE his sons THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, according to the Purpose of his Will, to the praise of his GLORIOUS GRACE he freely bestows upon us IN the Beloved. IN HIM we have redemption THROUGH HIS BLOOD, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the RICHES of his grace, that he LAVISHES upon us. For he has made KNOWN to us in ALL Wisdom and insight the mystery of his Will, according to his Purpose that he set forth IN CHRIST as the Plan in the fullness of time to unite ALL things IN CHRIST, things in heaven and things on earth. IN HIM according to the Purpose of him who accomplished ALL things according to the Counsel of his Will, we who first hoped IN CHRIST have been destined and appointed to LIVE for the praise of his GLORY. IN HIM you also who have HEARD the Word of Truth, the gospel of your salvation, and have BELIEVED IN HIM, sealed with the PROMISED Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we ACQUIRE POSSESSION of it, to the praise of his GLORY” Ephesians 1:3-13
“HIS divine POWER grants to us ALL things that pertain to life and godliness, through the Knowledge of him who CALLS US to HIS OWN Glory and Excellence, by which he grants to us his precious and very great PROMISES, that through these you may escape from the corruption in the world, and BE PARTAKERS of the divine nature” 2 Peter 1:3-4
“We have this TREASURE in earthen vessels, to show that the transcendent POWER belongs to God…always carrying in our body the death of Jesus so that the LIFE of Jesus may also be MANIFESTED IN OUR BODIES” 2 Corinthians 4:7-12
“If I build up again those things that Jesus tore down I prove myself a transgressor. For through the law I die to the law, to LIVE to God. I have been crucified WITH Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who LIVES in me; and the life I NOW LIVE in the flesh I live by FAITH in the Son of God who loves me and gave himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if justification were through the law, then Christ died to no purpose…Who has bewitched you?” Galatians 2:18-3:1
“Now that FAITH has come, we are no longer under a custodian; for IN CHRIST JESUS you are all sons of God through FAITH. For as many of you are baptized INTO CHRIST have PUT ON CHRIST” Galatians 3:25-27

“Do not quench the SPIRIT” 1 Thessalonians 5:19
Among the MATURE, God’s Wisdom is imparted; NOT the wisdom of this age or the rulers of this age who are doomed to PASS AWAY. But Holy Spirit imparts a secret and hidden Wisdom of God, decreed before the ages, for our glorification. What eye had not seen, ear had not heard, heart not yet conceived, God REVEALS to us THROUGH THE SPIRIT (1 Corinthians 2:6-10).
“Make the Word fully KNOWN, the mystery hidden for ages and generations but NOW made MANIFEST to his saints…made KNOWN how great the RICHES OF THE GLORY of this mystery…CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory. CHRIST we proclaim, WARNING every one and TEACHING every one in ALL Wisdom to present every one MATURE IN CHRIST” Colossians 1:25b-28
Receive Christ Jesus the Lord, so live IN HIM, rooted and built up IN HIM, and established in the FAITH of Jesus in God our Father, be TAUGHT, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one makes PREY of you apart from Christ. For IN HIM the whole fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily, and you come to FULLNESS of life IN HIM who is the HEAD of ALL rule and authority. IN HIM you are circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of flesh in the circumcision of Christ; buried WITH HIM and raised WITH HIM through FAITH in the working of God; made alive TOGETHER WITH CHRIST, forgiven ALL our trespasses, canceled the bond with its legal demands, nailed to the Cross; disarmed the principalities and powers and TRIUMPHED over them IN CHRIST. Hold fast to the HEAD from whom the WHOLE BODY is nourished and knit together and grows with growth from God. If with Christ you DIED to all other spirits in the universe, why do you still live as if you belonged to the world? (Colossians 2:6-20).
“Let the PEACE [shalom, wholeness of holiness, complete in Christ and Christ in you, abounding in grace and the free gift of righteousness to reign in life THROUGH Jesus) of Christ RULE in your HEART, called in his ONE BODY. And be thankful. Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly, teach and admonish one another in ALL Wisdom, and sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word or deed, do EVERYTHING in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father THROUGH HIM” Colossians 3:15-17
“IF you abide IN ME, and My WORDS abide in you, ASK whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. By THIS My Father is glorified” ~Jesus in John 15:7
“Therefore, IF any one is IN CHRIST, he is a NEW CREATURE [of the new creation of the new covenant between Father and Son], the old has PASSED AWAY, behold, the NEW has come” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Through the NEW LIVING WAY we are the new temples of the Living God, so do not be MISMATED, unequally yoked with unbelievers or yoked with the world submitting to bondage of slavery, but be YOKED with the Word of God, the King of kings and Lord of lords; the crucified, died, buried, resurrected, ascended, glorified, seated at the Right Hand of God, CHRIST JESUS: in partnership with RIGHTEOUSNESS, fellowship with LIGHT, one accord WITH CHRIST, sharing the FAITH of Jesus in God our Father, all things in common WITH CHRIST, agreement with the HOLY Spirit, not idols of this world. For we are the new TEMPLES of the Living God, as God says:
“I will live in them and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Therefore COME OUT [from the world system of beliefs]…I will welcome you, be Father to you, and you My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18
“Those who were not My people I will call, ‘My people’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘My beloved.’ And they will be called ‘sons of the Living God’ ” Romans 9:25-26
