Our Faith

Faith is the persuasion of the things that are in hope, as if they were in act; and it is the manifestness of the things not seen, our belief that what is presented by the Most High Former and Maker Jehovah no man can see and live, that we go by His Holy or Set-apart Word.

“ Now faith is {1 } assurance of things hoped for, a {2 } conviction of things not seen. {1) Or the giving substance to 2) Or test } (Heb 11:1 ASV)

“ And he said, Thou canst not see my face; for man shall not see me and live.” (Ex 33:20 ASV)

We believe the Divine Creator God has not only created man in His image, He also gave His own beloved only begotten son, whom many came to see, to show Who He is and to tell us what He wants from us.

“ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” (Ge 1:26 ASV)

“ And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins.” (Mt 1:21 ASV)

“30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found {1 } favor with God. {1) Or grace }31 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob {1 } for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. {1) Gr unto the ages }34 And Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: wherefore also {1 } the holy thing which is begotten {2 } shall be called the Son of God. {1) Or that which is to be born shall be called holy, the Son of God 2) Some ancient authorities insert of thee } (Lu 1:30-35 ASV)

“ and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, {1 } This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. {1) Or This is my Son; my beloved in whom I am well pleased. See Mt 12:18 } (Mt 3:17 ASV)

“21  Now it came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that, Jesus also having been baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 23 And Jesus himself, when he began to teach, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli,” (Lu 3:21-23 ASV)

We believe in this son of God who, in the beginning was lower than angels, but became made higher later, and is also a son of man (only Ezekiel, Daniel and Jesus are called son of man‘ or Ben-Adam, son of Adam – the name ‘Adam‘ coming from ‘A’dham‘ meaning ‘from the earth‘ or ‘human‘. ) who received from God the authority to declare Him and to speak and handle in His name, to become like a second Adam.

“ and he {Jehovah God} gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.” (Joh 5:27 ASV)

“ And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth.” (Mt 28:18 ASV)

We believe God has sent this man of flesh and blood, Jesus Christ, to declare the gospel or Good News.

“ but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,” (Ga 4:4 ASV)

“ Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.” (Joh 8:42 ASV)

“ The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor: He hath sent me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised,” (Lu 4:18 ASV)

“ And Jesus went about all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the {1 } gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease and all manner of sickness. {1) See marginal note on Mt 4:23 } (Mt 9:35 ASV)

“ but hath now been manifested by the appearing of our Saviour Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and {1 } immortality to light through the {2 } gospel, {1) Gr incorruption; See Ro 2:7. 2) Gr good tidings; See verse 8 } (2Ti 1:10 ASV)

We do believe this man of flesh and blood, born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth, is not a Spirit but the son of God, Who is greater than Jesus, and who came to tell about his heavenly Father, without Him Jesus could not do much. Though in every instance Jesus tried to follow the directions of his heavenly Father and every time to do His will instead of doing his own will (in case Jesus would be God he would always have done his own will). We also believe Jesus did not bear witness of himself, which he would have done when he would be God, but he gave witness of the Only One True God Who is One.

[Jesus said] “ See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye behold me having.” (Lu 24:39 ASV)

[but know] “ {1 } God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. {1) Or God is spirit } (Joh 4:24 ASV)

“17  But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh even until now, and I work. 18 For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will. 22 For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son; 23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: 27 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, 29 and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment. 30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
31  If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth. 34 But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved. 35 He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light. 36 But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.” (Joh 5:17-36 ASV)

“27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.
28  Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe. 30 I will no more speak much with you, for the prince of the world cometh: and he hath nothing in me; 31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.” (Joh 14:27-31 ASV)

“ saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” (Lu 22:42 ASV)

Like Jesus did not do his own will we also should try to do the will of God, so that we can come in front of Jesus who shall judge us in righteousness in the name of his heavenly Father.

“ I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” (Joh 5:30 ASV)

We believe that God searches our heart and that He knows our thoughts.

“ Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But Jehovah weigheth the hearts.” (Pr 21:2 ASV)

“ But Jehovah said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have rejected him: for Jehovah seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but Jehovah looketh on the heart.” (1Sa 16:7 ASV)

“ I, Jehovah, search the mind, I try the {1 } heart, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. {1) Heb reins } (Jer 17:10 ASV)

We have the faith that there shall come a day that the dead shall be called from the graves to be judged by the authorised man of God, Jesus Christ.

“ And {1 } this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole {2 } world for a testimony unto all the nations; and then shall the end come. {1) Or these good tidings 2) Gr inhabited earth } (Mt 24:14 ASV)

“ Now these things happened unto them {1 } by way of example; and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages are come. {1) Gr by way of figure } (1Co 10:11 ASV)

“ For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son;” (Joh 5:22 ASV)

“ {1 } I charge thee in the sight of God, and of Christ Jesus, who shall judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: {1) Or I testify, in the sight…dead, both of his appearing etc } (2Ti 4:1 ASV)

“ O the depth {1 } of the riches {2 } both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out! {1) Or of the riches and the wisdom etc 2) Or both of wisdom etc } (Ro 11:33 ASV)

“ which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God; to the end that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:” (2Th 1:5 ASV)

“ And inasmuch as it is {1 } appointed unto men once to die, and after this cometh judgment; {1) Gr laid up for; Col 1:5; 2 Ti 4:8 } (Heb 9:27 ASV)

“ but the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been {1 } stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. {1) Or stored with fire } (2Pe 3:7 ASV)

Therefore, we do hope to become accounted for by those who can walk in faith on the small road to enter the narrow or small gate to the Kingdom of God.

“ {1 } For narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few are they that find it. {1) Many ancient authorities read How narrow is the gate, etc } (Mt 7:14 ASV)

We sincerely believe Jesus is not God but the way to God, and he is the one we should follow to come to the Only True God Who is One, in the knowledge that there shall be that day that the son of man shall be revealed.

“ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but {1 } by me. {1) Or through } (Joh 14:6 ASV)

“ after the same manner shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed.” (Lu 17:30 ASV)

In our faith that Jesus gave himself as a ransom for our sins, which brought the grace of salvation over us all, we respect him for what he did.

“ even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” (Mt 20:28 ASV)

“ who gave himself a ransom for all; the testimony to be borne in its own times;” (1Ti 2:6 ASV)

We believe it was God Who raised Jesus from the dead and took him into the heavens to be seated next to Him, as a high-priest and as a mediator between God and man.

“ knowing that he that raised up {1 } the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also with Jesus, and shall present us with you. {1) Some ancient authorities omit the Lord } (2Co 4:14 ASV)

“ and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have {1 } done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment. {1) Or practised } (Joh 5:29 ASV)

“ Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live;” (Joh 11:25 ASV)

“ Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Henceforth ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.” (Mt 26:64 ASV)

“ And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” (Mr 14:62 ASV)

“ So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken unto them, was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.” (Mr 16:19 ASV)

“ For David himself saith in the book of Psalms, {1 } The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, {1) Ps 110:1 } (Lu 20:42 ASV)

“ But from henceforth shall the Son of man be seated at the right hand of the power of God.” (Lu 22:69 ASV)

“25 For David saith concerning him, {1 } I beheld the Lord always before my face; For he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: {1) Ps 16:8 ff }26 Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; Moreover my flesh also shall {1 } dwell in hope: {1) Or tabernacle }27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul unto Hades, Neither wilt thou give thy Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou madest known unto me the ways of life; Thou shalt make me full of gladness {1 } with thy countenance. {1) Or in thy presence }29 Brethren, I may say unto you freely of the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us unto this day. 30 Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins {1 } he would set one upon his throne; {1) Or, one should sit }31 he foreseeing this spake of the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was he left unto Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus did God raise up, {1 } whereof we all are witnesses. {1) Or of whom }33 Being therefore {1 } by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath poured forth this, which ye see and hear. {1) Or at }34 For David ascended not into the heavens: but he saith himself, {1 } The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, {1) Ps 110:1 }35 Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet. 36 Let {1 } all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly, that God hath made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom ye crucified. {1) Or every house } (Ac 2:25-36 ASV)

“ Him did God exalt {1 } with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, to give repentance to Israel, and remission of sins. {1) Or at } (Ac 5:31 ASV)

“55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 56 and said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.” (Ac 7:55-56 ASV)

“ For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, himself man, Christ Jesus,” (1Ti 2:5 ASV)

“ and to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaketh better {1 } than that of Abel. {1) Or than Abel } (Heb 12:24 ASV)

Our faith is build upon the words of God which clearly show who is who and give us the assurance for what is to come for those who believe in Christ, him being God’s son and the sent one of Him we believe to be his heavenly Father Who is the God of Abraham, Who is a Singular All-knowing God above all gods, Whose Great Name is Jehovah and should be honoured.

“ yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we unto him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him.” (1Co 8:6 ASV)

“ Moreover he {the Elohim Hashem Jehovah} said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.” (Ex 3:6 ASV)

“2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am Jehovah: 3 and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as {1 } God Almighty; but {2 } by my name Jehovah I was not {3 } known to them. {1) Heb El Shaddai 2) Or as to 3) Or made known } (Ex 6:2-3 ASV)

“ That they may know that {1 } thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth. {1) Or thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art etc } (Ps 83:18 ASV)

“ I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise unto graven images.” (Isa 42:8 ASV)

“ I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour.” (Isa 43:11 ASV)

“ And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am {1 } God Almighty; walk before me, and be thou perfect. {1) Heb El Shaddai } (Ge 17:1 ASV)

“ And God said unto him, I am {1 } God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; {1) Heb El Shaddai } (Ge 35:11 ASV)

“ and that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, {1 } what things I have wrought upon Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know that I am Jehovah. {1) Or how I have mocked the Egyptians } (Ex 10:2 ASV)

“ And he {Jeshua or Jesus, the son of God} said unto them, When ye pray, say, {1 } Father, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. {2 } {1) Many ancient authorities read Our Father, who art in heaven; See Mt 6:9. 2) Many ancient authorities add Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth. See Mt 6:10 } (Lu 11:2 ASV)

Convinced that we should follow God His commandments and have to do His will, we shall not make or have any graven image of the God and shall not worship any other gods or idols.

“ Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:” (Ex 20:4 ASV)

“ Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;” (De 11:16 ASV)

“ And Jesus answered and said unto him, It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Lu 4:8 ASV)

We believe that the Unseen God is an eternal Spirit Whom we must worship in a special way, out of our very own being and free will, with our full honest spirit and our true self, in adoration. We believe we must adhere a pure and real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, which reaches out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard.

“ {1 } God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. {1) Or God is spirit } (Joh 4:24 ASV)

“ Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” (Jas 1:27 ASV)

Furthermore, we believe we should work at our character and should have our faith working in us, showing the works of faith, around us and when gathering with like-minded brethren and sisters, always ready to step in the footsteps of the Nazarene Jewish master Jeshua (Jesus) following up the task he has given to go out in the world to preach the coming Kingdom of God.

“ {1 } do ye not make distinctions {2 } among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? {1) Or are ye not divided 2) Or in your own mind } (Jas 2:4 ASV)

“ {1 } because if thou shalt {2 } confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved: {1) Or that 2) Some ancient authorities read confess the word with thy mouth, that Jesus is Lord } (Ro 10:9 ASV)

“ And without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing unto him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek after him.” (Heb 11:6 ASV)

“ For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead.” (Jas 2:26 ASV)

“ Now therefore, in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of Jehovah, and in the audience of our God, observe and seek out all the commandments of Jehovah your God; that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children after you for ever.” (1Ch 28:8 ASV)

“ not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day drawing nigh.” (Heb 10:25 ASV)

We believe it is Jesus who should be our leader and the cornerstone of our community, which should be part of the spiritual body of Christ and as such making church, being made capable to be children of God, willing to be guided by God’s Spirit and living by the hope prepared by Jesus Christ for us, which shall bring us a renewed world and renewed un-ending life. We believe that those being judged by Christ to be allowed to enter the Kingdom, shall see him as king and then we shall be able to see that there shall be made an end to death, when Jesus shall hand over the Kingdom to his heavenly Father, the Only One God.

“ being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone;” (Eph 2:20 ASV)

“4  unto whom coming, a living stone, rejected indeed of men, but with God elect, {1 } precious, {1) Or honorable }5 ye also, as living stones, are built up {1 } a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. {1) Or a spiritual house for a holy priesthood }6 Because it is contained in {1 } scripture, {2 } Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, {3 } precious: And he that believeth on {4 } him shall not be put to shame. {1) Or a scripture 2) Isa 28:16. 3) Or honorable 4) Or it } (1Pe 2:4-6 ASV)

“ For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1Co 3:11 ASV)

“22 and he put all things in subjection under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.” (Eph 1:22-23 ASV)

“ And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; {1 } that in all things he might have the preeminence. {1) Or that among all he might have etc } (Col 1:18 ASV)

“ Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and fill up on my part that which is lacking of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church;” (Col 1:24 ASV)

“5 having foreordained us unto adoption as sons through Jesus Christ unto himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6 to the praise of the glory of his grace, {1 } which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved: {1) Or wherewith he endued us }7 in whom we have our redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 {1 } which he made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, {1) Or wherewith he abounded }9 making known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he purposed in him 10 unto a dispensation of the fulness of the {1 } times, to sum up all things in Christ, the things {2 } in the heavens, and the things upon the earth; in him, I say, {1) Gr seasons 2) Gr upon }11 in whom also we were made a heritage, having been foreordained according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his will; 12 to the end that we should be unto the praise of his glory, we who {1 } had before hoped in Christ: {1) Or have }13 in whom ye also, having heard the word of the truth, the {1 } gospel of your salvation,—in whom, having also believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, {1) Gr good tidings; See marginal note on Mt 4:23 }14 which is an earnest of our inheritance, unto the redemption of God’s own possession, unto the praise of his glory.” (Eph 1:5-14 ASV)

“14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For ye received not the spirit of bondage again unto fear; but ye received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” (Ro 8:14-15 ASV)

“6 And because ye are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 So that thou art no longer a bondservant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.” (Ga 4:6-7 ASV)

“ Blessed be {1 } the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy begat us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, {1) Or God and the Father; See Ro 15:6 margin } (1Pe 1:3 ASV)

“1  Forasmuch then as Christ suffered in the flesh, arm ye yourselves also with the same {1 } mind; for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased {2 } from sin; {1) Or thought 2) Some ancient authorities read unto sins }2 that {1 } ye no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. {1) Or he no longer…his time }3 For the time past may suffice to have wrought the desire of the Gentiles, and to have walked in lasciviousness, lusts, winebibbings, revellings, carousings, and abominable idolatries: 4  wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them into the same {1 } excess of riot, speaking evil of you: {1) Or flood }5 who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the living and the dead. 6 For unto this end {1 } was the gospel preached even to the dead, that they might be judged indeed according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. {1) Or were the good tidings preached }
7  But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore of sound mind, and be sober unto {1 } prayer: {1) Gr prayers }8 above all things being fervent in your love among yourselves; for love covereth a multitude of sins: 9 using hospitality one to another without murmuring: 10 according as each hath received a gift, ministering it among yourselves, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God; 11 if any man speaketh, speaking as it were oracles of God; if any man ministereth, ministering as of the strength which God supplieth: that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, whose is the glory and the dominion {1 } for ever and ever. Amen. {1) Gr unto the ages of the ages }
12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial among you, which cometh upon you to prove you, as though a strange thing happened unto you: 13 but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy. 14 If ye are reproached {1 } for the name of Christ, blessed are ye; because the Spirit of glory and the Spirit of God resteth upon you. {1) Gr in }15 For let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evil-doer, or as a meddler in other men’s matters: 16 but if a man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God in this name. 17 For the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if it begin first at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the {1 } gospel of God? {1) Gr good tidings; See Mt 4:23 margin }18 And if the righteous is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them also that suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing unto a faithful Creator.” (1Pe 4:1-19 ASV)

“ And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Mt 10:7 ASV)

“ who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love;” (Col 1:13 ASV)

“34 For David ascended not into the heavens: but he saith himself, {1 } The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, {1) Ps 110:1 }35 Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet.” (Ac 2:34-35 ASV)

“ But when the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory:” (Mt 25:31 ASV)

“ And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Mt 19:28 ASV)

“ Then cometh the end, when he shall deliver up the kingdom to {1 } God, even the Father; when he shall have abolished all rule and all authority and power. {1) Gr the God and Father } (1Co 15:24 ASV)

“ The last enemy that shall be abolished is death.” (1Co 15:26 ASV)

That are the points of our faith which are founded on the Bible, the infallible Word of God, which we take as our guide to find the treasure we are willing to look for.

“ But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Mt 6:33 ASV)

“ The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in the field; which a man found, and hid; and {1 } in his joy he goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. {1) Or for joy thereof } (Mt 13:44 ASV)

“ Yet seek ye {1 } his kingdom, and these things shall be added unto you. {1) Many ancient authorities read the kingdom of God } (Lu 12:31 ASV)
