READY REFERENCE ON BIBLICAL SUBJECTS
MAN’S RELATION TO GOD, THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST PATERNAL ASPECT:
I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God. John 20:17
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven. Mat. 5:45
But love your enemies and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again, and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest, for He is kind to the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful as your Father also is merciful. Luke 6:35, 36
For ye are all the children of God, BY FAITH in Christ Jesus. Gal. 3:26
We, (the faithful) are the children of God. Rom. 8:16
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children, and walk in love. Eph. 5:1–2
Touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Cor. 6:18
But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God. Rom. 8:14
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God … among whom ye shine as lights in the world. Phil. 2:15
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God; therefore, the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when He shall appear (i.e., Christ) we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure. 1 John 3:1–3
Marvel not that I said unto you, ye must be born again. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God. John 3:3, 7
As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name; which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:12–13
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and everyone that loveth Him that begat loveth Him that is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world, and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our FAITH. Who is he that overcometh the world but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:1–5
Posted 13 August 2007 - 03:50 AM
He (Abraham) received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had, yet being uncircumcised, that he might be the father of all them that BELIEVE, though they be not circumcised, that righteousness might be imputed unto them also. The father also of those who walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised. For the promise that he should be heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of FAITH. Therefore, it is of faith, that it might be by grace, to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed, not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the FAITH OF ABRAHAM, who is the father of us all. As it is written, I have (by promise) made thee (Abraham) a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things that be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations. Rom. 4:11-13; 4:16-18
Now to Abraham and his seed were the PROMISES made. He saith not and to seeds as of many, but as of ONE, and to thy seed, WHICH IS CHRIST … and if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the Promise. Gal. 3:29
Now we brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of Promise. Gal. 4:28
OUR RELATIONSHIP TO JESUS, SON OF THE LIVING GOD.
The King, (Christ) shall say, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matt. 25:40
Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid; go tell my brethren that they go into Galileo, and there shall they see me. Matt. 28:10
Go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my father, and your father, and to my God, and your God. John 20:17
For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate, to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren. Rom. 8:29
Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord? 1 Cor. 9:5
To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ, which are at Colossee: Grace be unto you and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 1:2
For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren. Heb. 2:11
GOD, THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
UPON OUR KNOWLEDGE OF GOD DEPENDS OUR FUTURE EXISTENCE:
Jesus said; This is life eternal, that they might KNOW THEE, the ONLY TRUE GOD, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent. John 17:3
A certain lawyer stood up and tempted Him (Christ) saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?… And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself. Luke 10:25, 27
Jesus said, They that worship Him (God) must worship Him in truth. John 4:24
To the nation of Israel God spoke through Moses, saying, Thou shalt have NONE OTHER gods but ME. Ex. 34:14 Jesus repeated this in Mark 12:29. One of the scribes came and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered: The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is ONE LORD; And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength; this is the first commandment. Mark 12:28–30
The prophet Isaiah spoke “BEFORE ME (GOD) there was NO GOD FORMED, and neither shall there be AFTER ME. Isa. 43:10
Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, I am the first, and I am the last, and BESIDE ME THERE IS NO GOD. Isa. 44:6
Paul, the Apostle, said: There is NONE OTHER GOD BUT ONE. 1 Cor. 8:4 Again in Eph. 4:6, we read, THERE IS ONE GOD and Father of all (those “that believe”), who is above ALL.
Israel had this lesson to learn, as recorded in Deut. 4:39, The Lord our God is ONE LORD, and beside Him, THERE IS NONE ELSE. Know this and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD, HE IS GOD in heaven above and upon the earth beneath; there is NONE ELSE.
Paul said to the believers of Galatia, GOD IS ONE (Gal. 3:20). THERE IS ONE GOD AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS. 1 Tim. 2:5
Now unto the KING, ETERNAL, IMMORTAL, INVISIBLE, THE ONLY WISE GOD, be honor and glory forever and ever. 1 Tim. 1:17
GOD HAS NO EQUAL, for HE says: I am God and there is none like me. Isa. 46:9 Also, to whom will ye liken ME or SHALL I BE EQUAL? saith the Holy One. Isa. 40:1, 25
Lord God of Israel, there is no God like thee in heaven above, or in the earth beneath. 1 Kings 8:23
I am the Lord and there is none else; there is no God beside ME … That they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none BESIDE ME. I am the Lord, that created the heavens, God Himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it. He created it not in vain. He formed it to be inhabited. I am the Lord, and there is none else. Isa. 45:5, 6, 18
In speaking to the believers Paul said: Though there be that ARE CALLED GODS, whether in heaven or in earth (as there be gods many and lords many), but to us there is but ONE GOD, THE FATHER, of whom are all things and we by Him, and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things and we by Him. 1 Cor. 8:5, 6

The angel, in speaking to the virgin Mary, said: The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee and the POWER of the Highest, shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35. The angel, Gabriel, was sent from God to a virgin, espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary—And the angel came in unto her and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying … and the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest, and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David, and He shall reign over the house of Jacob, forever, and of His Kingdom there shall be no end. Luke 1:26–35
The angel of the Lord appeared unto Joseph, saying, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins. Matt. 1:18–25
Paul said, Jesus was made of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God, with POWER, by the resurrection from the dead. Rom. 1:4
We also have the testimony of Paul in speaking to the Hebrews: Jesus was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death. Heb. 2:9 Also, that God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law. Gal. 4:4. He, (Christ) took not on Him the nature of angels, for in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren. As they were partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same. Heb. 2:9, 14, 16, 17. Christ was the ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God, the Father. 1 John 4:9
Jesus Himself, said, Why callest thou me good? There is none good, but ONE: THAT IS GOD. Mark 10:18
He (Jesus) was in all points tempted like as we are yet without sin. James 1:13; Heb. 4:15
When the fullness of time was come God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law. Gal. 4:4
Now, ye seek to kill me, a MAN that hath told you the TRUTH, which I have heard of God. John 8:40
Christ is spoken of by the Prophet Isaiah 53:3, as “a MAN OF sorrows and acquainted with grief.” Also, “through this man is preached the forgiveness of sins.” Acts 13:38
Jesus is now “at the right hand of God, as the “One Mediator BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Tim. 2:5
Christ is spoken of as “The Resurrection”. For since by man came death (Adam); by MAN (CHRIST), came also the resurrection of the dead. 1 Cor. 15:2. Later, the world will be judged by THAT man whom God hath ordained, the man Christ Jesus. Acts 17:31
Jesus was made perfect through suffering. Heb. 2:10
Christ as smitten of God and afflicted. Isa. 53:4
He increased in wisdom and favour with God and man. Luke 2:52
Jesus Himself said, I do nothing of myself. John 14:28. My Father is GREATER THAN I. John 14:28
Jesus was saved out of that which He feared and learned obedience by the things which He suffered. Heb. 5:7–8
Christ was the one man destined by God to die for the sins of the people, and so, God spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all. John 11:50, 51 Rom. 8:32
God sent His son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10
It was God’s Son who made His soul an offering for sin—who was cut off out of the land of the living, and who made His grave with the wicked and with the rich in His death. It was God’s Son who was brought as a lamb to the slaughter. Isa. 53:6–10
For though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered. Heb. 5:1, 8. When He had by Himself, purged our sins, God raised Him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places. Eph. 1:20
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Heb. 4:15
Jesus said to Mary: Go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, to my God and your God. John 20:17
After Christ’s ascension, Stephen (later a martyr), was permitted to see the heavens were opened and He saw the glory of God and Jesus standing on the right hand of God. Acts 7:55, 56
Then cometh the end, when the Son shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God, even the Father … for He must reign till He hath put all enemies under His feet. When all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him (GOD), that put all things under Him, THAT GOD MAY BE ALL IN ALL. 1 Cor. 15:24–28
The Jews sought the more to kill Him (Jesus) because He not only had broken the sabbath but said also that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God. THEN ANSWERED JESUS AND SAID UNTO THEM, Verily, verily, I say unto you, THE SON CAN DO NOTHING OF HIMSELF … For the Father loveth the Son and sheweth Him all things that Himself doeth, and He will shew Him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. For as the Father raiseth up the dead and quickeneth them, even so the Son quickeneth whom He will. For the Father judgeth no man but hath committed all judgment unto the Son. I can of mine own self do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not mine own will but the will of the Father which hath sent me. John 5:18–22
Jesus answered them, I told you and ye believed not. The works that I do in my Father’s name; they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice and I know them, and they follow me; and I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish … MY FATHER IS GREATER THAN ALL. John 10:25–28
Jesus said: My doctrine is not mine; but His that sent me. If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. For I do always those things that please Him. John 8:28
Say ye of Him, whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest because I said I am THE SON OF GOD? If I do not the works of my Father believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me believe the works, that ye may know and believe that the Father is in me and I in Him. John 10:36–38. I and my Father are one (John 10:30)
For He did always those things which pleased the Father. I pray not for the world but for those whom thou hast given me for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; for I am glorified in them. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. I have given them Thy Word. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them THROUGH THY TRUTH: THY WORD IS TRUTH, THAT THEY ALL MAY BE ONE, AS THOU FATHER ART IN ME, AND I IN THEE, THAT THEY ALSO MAY BE ONE IN US, that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory thou gavest me, I have given (and will give) them, that they may be one, even as we are one. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one. John 17th chapter
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Matt. 3:17
Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to me a Son. Heb. 1:5
And I saw and bare record that this is the Son of God. John 1:34
Truly this man was the Son of God. Mark 15:39
Rabbi, thou art the Son of God. John 1:49
Of a truth, thou art the Son of God. Matt. 14:33
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 1 John 4:15
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5:5
These things are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. John 20:31
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Acts 8:37
He preached Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God. Acts 9:20
Jesus said: This is LIFE ETERNAL, THAT THEY MAY KNOW THEE, THE ONLY TRUE GOD, AND JESUS CHRIST, WHOM THOU HAST SENT. John 17:3
Christ also said: FOR MY FATHER IS GREATER THAN I. John 14:28
THERE IS ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL, WHO IS ABOVE ALL … and in you all (i.e., by Faith in Christ Jesus). Eph. 4:5–6
Above supplement added in 1963.

THE PROMISED REST
Once offered Israel after the flesh (Heb. 4:1, 6)—which was the land of promise (Num. 14:8; Heb. 11:9)—and to become “a kingdom of priests” therein (Exo. 19:6)—“Not being mixed with faith” (Heb. 4:2)—“My breach of promise”—“altering of my purpose” (see Marg.) (Num. 14:34). Not allowing them to enter in, “their carcasses fell in the wilderness” (Heb. 3:17)—“Therefore the rest remaineth for the people of God,” the Israelites indeed (Heb. 4:9).
OFFERED THROUGH CHRIST
“Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein” (Heb. 4:6)—“for unto us was the gospel preached as well as unto them” (4:2)—being likewise offered “the royal priesthood” (I Pet. 2:9; Rev. 5:10)—“if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end” (Heb. 3:14)—will enter the land of rest, and rule therein (Luke 22:30) and “the dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven” (Dan. 7:27)—when “the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem” (Mic. 4:8)—as “the Most High giveth it to whomsoever he will” (Dan. 4:25)—“For all the earth is mine” (Exo. 19:5)—which “shall be filled with the glory of the Lord” (Num. 14:21; Isa. 11:9; Hab. 2:14.
What the fathers of Israel under Moses might have obtained without dying in the wilderness, spiritual Israel through Christ will gain by resurrection, (and those alive at his coming) THE REST and the glory appertaining thereto.
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the example of unbelief. Heb. 4:11.
For the Lord has chosen Zion … this is my rest forever; here will I dwell; for I have desired it. Psa. 132:13, 14.
I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place. Isa. 18:4.
