Deuteronomy 4:2

King James Version

2 Ye shall not add unto the word 

which I command you, 

neither shall ye diminish ought from it, 

that ye may keep the commandments 

of the Lord your God 

which I command you.

Yes, there is GREAT urgency these days.

We have no idea when JESUS will come to "collect" His faithful.

The Rapture can happen any moment of GOD's choosing.

Any time He wakes me up, I write, through SPIRIT's guidance.

Any time He calls my attention to a word, or verse, I study it.

Any time I have a question, I pray to JESUS, for clarification.

Before GOD made me born again, I was all eyes, and ears.

To signs, symbols, and studies, which abound everywhere.

When GOD made me born again, I focus on GOD's commands.

Through JESUS, SPIRIT, and Scripture.

I recall the SPECIFIC times GOD gave instructions:

(More like "alerts", really.)

14 January 2020 -- He alerted me to the Rapture.

29 March 2021 -- He tasked me to "CALL OUT THE ERRORS".

9 February 2022 -- He gave the slogan: "That all men may know the BIBLE, and live by it".

19 March 2024 -- He woke me up early today to write articles on "BROTHERHOOD".

I noticed there's no specific instruction in 2023.

But SPIRIT and I did write TONS of supporting articles.

GOD gives the framework for my work.

All I do is pray, wait, watch, wake up, listen, write, and share.

All is clear.

All is organized.

All is true.

My heart's jumping jelly beans each time SPIRIT gives me a "prompt".

That's what happens when you serve the LORD.

You sit at His feet, listening closely.

Making sure you don't miss a thing.

Making sure you got things right.

Nothing like knowing Who GOD Is.

Someone to love, fear, worship, adore, and obey.

And yes, Someone to laugh with.

Someone Who is probably amused at me.

GOD works with His creation.

You are His creation.

He works with what He put in your heart.

It's meant to serve His purpose, especially if you are His.

All we do, as born again, is to give GLORY to GOD.

Through whatever work He tasked us with.

Well, I belong to the LORD.

I've surrendered my will, to His.

And this is how we work together:

Simply, clearly, decisively, promptly, precisely.

GOD knows I love lists.

He gave me lots of ideas to create lists on.

You won't believe the volume of Scripture notes I have.

GOD knows I love simplicity.

He created an ingenious system for me.

All it takes is ONE word, or "clue" from GOD, and I'm off writing!

GOD knows I love studying.

He gave me TONS to study regarding Scripture.

The Bible is soooo rich in GOD's truth.

GOD knows I love writing.

He gave me TONS to write about.

At the moment, we've got over 100 blogs and 24 ebooks.

GOD knows I love sharing with you.

He gave me a unique way of sharing His WORD with the world.

With no social media, mind you.

It is a delight to be born again.

There is rhyme, reason, and rule to my existence.

All according to GOD's laws, will, and purpose.

There is no time wasted, no word wasted, no energy wasted.

Whether it be from GOD's end, your end, or my end.

I value, and respect, all of us.

That's how it is when you work for GOD.

He's got intelligent use of everything.

He taps the talents He gave you.

Especially if you use it, in His service.

I am only productive, because I believe in JESUS.

John 7:38

King James Version

38 He that believeth on me, 

as the scripture hath said, 

out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

It's only JESUS who makes me produce anything at all.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.

The engineers, economists, managers, CEOs, presidents, armies, and scientists of this world will be shamefaced, if they have an inkling of GOD's superior system.

Scripture gives me a healthy inkling.

When I get to heaven, surely GOD will show me more.

For now, I work with what my human vehicle can muster.

Taking great care I am true to GOD's WORD.

With thrilled, childlike delight, of course!

Psalm 1:2

King James Version

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 

and in his law doth he meditate 

day and night.

The RAPTURE scenario


JESUS warned:

Matthew 24:39-40

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Four months after GOD made me born again, JESUS alerted me to the Rapture.

That was in 14 January 2020.

I haven't stopped writing, and warning, since.

I'm grateful the LORD alerted me to it.

The imminent event in GOD's calendar.

The event that will change everything.

The event that will open the door for the Tribulation.

The event that will separate believers, from unbelievers.

The event wherein people will go missing from the earth.

The event that will literally turn the world upside down.

Unless you're born again, you won't believe.

It's too fantastic for you.

Too weird.

Too out of this world.

But it is -- out of this world.

Believers will be taken out of this world.

We shall meet JESUS in the air.

Expect GREAT sounds coming from heaven.

That, in itself, will alert everyone.

And make everything stop in its tracks.

Can you imagine JESUS coming down from heaven?

And being seen, everywhere in the world?

Can you imagine graves opened, and bodies taken up to the clouds?

1 Thessalonians 4:16

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself 

shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Can you also imagine yourself, and others, taken up to the clouds?

1 Thessalonians 4:17

King James Version

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Believers will meet the LORD, up in the air.

But can you imagine the shock, terror, and panic for those left behind?

There will be chaos, and confusion.

Imagine having a cup of coffee with a friend.

And boom, one of you is gone!

Or you're having breakfast with your family.

And some of you are "caught up" in the clouds.

Now, imagine if you were in a car, bus, cab, train, or plane.

And suddenly, there's no driver, or pilot!

Other passengers are gone, too!

Can you imagine the chaos, danger, and panic?

Can you bear what I'm about to tell you?

The scenario is plain common sense.

The RAPTURE can happen ANY moment.

As we go about our daily lives.

As there are billions of people, so will there be billions of scenarios.

With each one of us, having a story to tell.

Here are a few:

Imagine a doctor performing surgery on a patient.

Then he goes a-missing.

Or his patient disappears.

Maybe, some nurses would be gone, too.

The staff would be gone.

The clinic or hospital's become half empty.

Maybe, half the ICU patients disappear.

People will surely panic, and be extremely terrified.

And hurt, in so many ways.

Imagine a mother holding her baby.

Or feeding her baby.

Perhaps, the baby's in a stroller, and they're in the park.

Then the baby goes missing.

So with many other kids everywhere.

And you hear screams, and cries.

Mothers frantic, looking for their babies.

Not knowing what happened.

Panic, and terror all around.

What if kids have gone missing from schools, or universities?

How can the principals and teachers explain to their parents?

Then the principals and teachers can't find their own kids, or parents.

Your favorite principals, and teachers, could be gone, too.

Friends have gone missing.

Relatives can't be found.

Most everyone's gone missing.

Are you prepared for such a day?

What happens when high-rise buildings don't have occupants anymore?

What happens when offices are half-empty?

What happens when all the decent workers are gone?

Imagine the terror in an elevator, when half the occupants go missing.

What about when workers disappear from a factory?

What if it's a sensitive-kind of factory?

A munitions factory, for one.

Or a smelting plant.

How about a nuclear plant?

What happens to corporations then?

What happens to the world?

Imagine huge tractors running in a field.

Left to fend for itself.

Its operator gone.

Or trucks, and bulldozers, running around.

Empty cars running all over the place.

Crashing into each other.

And into everything.

No drivers can be found.

What will they run over?

Who can get hurt?

Imagine people freaking out at malls.

Half the people gone.

Or concerts.

Or games.

Or theaters.

Or even in churches.

Not all church goers will be part of the Rapture.

Not all churches are faithful to the LORD.

Not every church is OF the LORD.

This is not a movie.

No movie, or book, can depict it accurately enough.

I'm merely taking my brain to everyday, normal activities.

It will be real, when GOD says, "NOW!"

Governments will be on FULL alert, expecting the worst.

And yet, not being able to know for sure.

For the first time, they have no answer.

For the first time, they have no solution.

For the first time, their weapons are of no use.

How can people just be gone?

Where does one begin to look?

Where have the people gone?

No military can ever bring back the people.

GOD gave them to His Son, JESUS, to bring home.

For only GOD knows the day, or the hour.

Would governments have paid attention to Scripture?

Would they have listened?

Would they finally accept the REAL POWER?

But a born again knows for sure.

We know the Rapture is imminent.

We don't know the day, the time, or the hour.

Only GOD knows that.

GOD can decide ANY time is THE time.

JESUS can have us meet Him up in the air ANY time.

Thus, all the soul preparation.

But when the Rapture happens, we won't be there to tell you.

We did tell you, but maybe you ignored us.

And now that we're gone, you have to turn to Scripture.

The very Scripture we've been telling you about.

Believers had been sharing the WORD of GOD with you all along.

And yet, you never believed us.

You thought us nuts.

You can't wait to snuff the life out of us.

But this time, you will finally call upon the LORD JESUS.

Only JESUS can save us.

True believers will be gone, that's a certainty.

All who will be left are the unbelievers.

Those who remain skeptical.

Those still flirting with other doctrines.

Those still living a wicked life.

Those still challenging GOD.

Those still under the bondage of Satan.

Unbelievers will say it's aliens.

That we've been "snatched".

A "mass abduction".

That's the devil's plan.

He's preparing for such an event.

Neither does he know the day, the time, or the hour.

All he could do is program you, his way.

Making you believe it is not GOD's Rapture.

Making people look up to the sky for something else.

Making us all look silly, looking for what not.

A comet, an entity, or something.

As if that would explain everything.

As if GOD would be predictable.

The devil's always been a copycat.

No originality in him.

But GOD will open people's eyes.

And they will see the deceiver for who he is.

For once, science and religion will be dumbfounded.

They will have no explanation for the Rapture.

This time, they will bend to GOD's knowledge, and power.

This time, GOD will bend time, and space.

And make mincemeat of matter.

In ways that will blow their minds.

Will they have a logical explanation for the disappearances?

No mathematical formula, or philosophy, can explain the Rapture.

Man's mind is nothing, compared to GOD's.

Now, imagine people fighting in a war.

They're using their toughest weapons on each other.

Decimating each other.

Firing rockets, right and left.

All of a sudden, many soldiers go missing.

From both sides.

Taken up to the clouds.

Will everyone freak out?

Will that stop the war?

Perhaps, the ones that will join JESUS, are the reluctant ones.

The ones reluctant to fight man's war.

The ones who don't believe in the war.

The ones coerced to fight that war.

The ones who don't have the heart to kill.

They will definitely be MIA.

Missing in action.

And no man can accost them about it.

They are the true deserters.

They deserted man's foolish war.

GOD took them out of it.

Only He knows who they are.

Others will simply not know how it all happened.

People will be reeling in shock.

Imagine losing a member of your family.

Or members of your family.

Or losing half your community, corporation, or country.

Are you prepared for that?

While communication is still available, you'll hear all about it.

The radio, social media, and television will report the disappearances.

IF they're still operational.

But what if the operators are caught up with JESUS?

Who's left to operate the machines, satellites, and systems?

And even if your call came through, no one may answer.

Won't that cause gut-wrenching panic, and grief?

Now, we will know what "dead air" means.

Won't satellites crash against each other?

Won't they fall on our heads, too?

What if governments panic?

Thinking it's an alien invsion.

Or another country's invasion.

Won't they open their silos?

After all, they've prepared for such.

Only thing is, they prepared for an invasion.

Not INSTANT disappearance of millions, even billions, of people.

And what if the missiles and rockets hit their targets?

Can EMPs paralyze an already paralyzed world?

All electronic systems may fail.

And more death, and chaos, may occur.

Maybe, people will still be able to broadcast from their phones.

But how long would electronic communication be around?

Every place will have people missing.

Everything will be half-manned.

Maybe, systems will crash.

Maybe, there won't be people to fix it.

People will be beside themselves with grief.

Not knowing where their loved ones have gone.

Not knowing how else to get in touch with them.

Considering how most are addicted to media these days.

It sure will be pure grief, chaos, and confusion on earth.

Supply will fall apart.

Production will fall apart.

Systems will fall apart.

Wars will fall apart.

People will walk the streets dazed.

There will be chaos, and confusion.

And utter destruction.

People will lose their minds.

There will also be criminals.

People will loot.

People will hoard.

Opportunists will abound.

Now, the streets, and buildings are half-empty.

People can take anything they want.

Thinking they've had their revenge.

Thinking they'll be self-sufficient.

Thinking, "What a steal!"

And steal all they want.

Our delusions never end.

Prisoners can go missing, too.

Who's to say all are guilty in prison?

Only GOD knows our hearts, and deeds.

Only He knows our thoughts.

So, let's not be too hasty judging each other.

Maybe, those who have needlessly suffered from oppressors, will be the first to be with JESUS.

Especially those who have repented of their sins.

And given their hearts to the LORD.

Waiting for that glorious day of freedom!

People and media will have all kinds of conjectures.

You know how they love to talk.

But maybe this time, they'll be speechless.

Maybe, they'll try to fill the air.

Anything, something.

To console people.

To make sense of things.

To look for loved ones.

But there may be no listeners.

No advertisers.

No consumer to care, or sell to.

Maybe, even no network to broadcast from.

Not only that.

They, too, will have loved ones missing.

Those left behind will be screaming, searching, suffering.


People will search for their loved ones.

People will screech in grief, and agony.

People will suffer, not knowing.

But if you're born again, you'd know.

It's what we've been telling all of you, all this time.

To prepare for that day.

That we may be worthy of the LORD.

One thing is certain.

When people go missing, you look for them.

And when you can't find them, you go crazy.

When it finally sinks in that it's the Rapture the Christians are talking about, you're left with a soul-wrenching question:

Why weren't you part of it?

Didn't you live a good life?

Didn't you give to charity?

Didn't you go to church every Sunday?

Aren't you a Christian?

Didn't you worship a god?

And that will create another round of angst.

Anger, rage, and resentment will be part of it, too.

Everyone will demand an answer.

Do you now see this never-ending web of grief, chaos, and confusion?

The devil knows the buttons to push in man.

The way he plays with our minds.

Our hearts, and emotions.

Our pride, and sense of self-importance.

Our wealth, and feelings of entitlement.

And he will play it to the hilt.

He will twist you.

He will twist GOD's words.

Making people believe it is anything BUT the Rapture.

But the true born again knows better.

He knew this would happen.

Only because:

You refused to believe in JESUS.

You had no love for GOD.

You worshiped a different god.

You resisted becoming born again.

You did not heed Scripture.

You did not repent of your sins.

You did not even believe yourself capable of sin.

You have become subject to the devil's wiles.


Unbelievers will be in GREAT danger.

They had that chance to be with JESUS, and they blew it.

In looking for a reason for the mystery, they will look for answers.

They will look to someone who could.

And that's where the Tribulation will begin.

A man, not of GOD, will step in.

It's all been prophesied.

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

King James Version

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: 

for that day shall not come, 

except there come a falling away first, 

and that man of sin be revealed, 

the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself 

above all that is called God, 

or that is worshipped; 

so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, 

shewing himself that he is God.

And this I must tell you.

You will WANT to have been PART of the Rapture.

No one, in their right mind, will want to be part of the Tribulation.

You will REGRET every moment you ignored JESUS.

Your heart will be inconsolable, once your loved ones are gone.

Especially when a godless leader takes over.

Intent on destroying you.

You've been warned, but did you take heed?

You could have been with believers, too.

What's to happen to those left behind?

GREAT trouble, according to the Bible.

Revelation 6:12-17

King James Version

12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, 

and, lo, there was a great earthquake; 

and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, 

and the moon became as blood;

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, 

even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, 

when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14 And the heaven departed 

as a scroll when it is rolled together; 

and every mountain and island 

were moved out of their places.

15 And the kings of the earth, 

and the great men, 

and the rich men, 

and the chief captains, 

and the mighty men, 

and every bondman, 

and every free man, 

hid themselves in the dens 

and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, 

Fall on us, 

and hide us from the face of him 

that sitteth on the throne, 

and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; 

and who shall be able to stand?

Will you continue to do as you are doing now?

Matthew 24:37-39

King James Version

37 But as the days of Noah were, 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood 

they were eating and drinking, 

marrying and giving in marriage, 

until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

2 Timothy 3:1-7

King James Version

3 This know also, that in the last days 

perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, 

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, 

false accusers, incontinent, fierce, 

despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, 

lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.

2 Peter 3:3-4

King James Version

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.

Or will you finally turn to the LORD?

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

We cannot stress the urgency enough.

Each day we're still on earth is PURE GRACE.

We are being given a chance to get right with GOD.

I count my blessings I'm able to warn you every day.

At any given moment, that opportunity could be gone.

Let's all aspire to be with JESUS, when GOD says, 'It's time!"

Let's repent, believe in JESUS, and be worthy of Him.

Let's live the holy life JESUS asks of us.

Let's love GOD, with all our hearts.

There is only GOD.

Hebrews 12:2

King James Version

2 Looking unto Jesus 

the author and finisher of our faith; 

who for the joy that was set before him 

endured the cross, 

despising the shame, 

and is set down 

at the right hand of the throne of God.

The world is full of distraction.

Keeping you in darkness, and deception.

Keeping our eyes away from JESUS.

When He is all there is, and will ever be.

One chapter in the Bible has much to say.

On what we must focus on, and how we are to live.

We are to be ready when the LORD receives His faithful anytime.

Our hearts must be right with GOD:

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.

Why are we to do so?

Colossians 3:3-4

King James Version

3 For ye are dead, 

and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, 

then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

How are we to do that?

Colossians 3:5

King James Version

5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

Colossians 3:8

King James Version

8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Colossians 3:9-11

King James Version

9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

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

Colossians 3:12-13

King James Version

12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

Colossians 3:14

King James Version

14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Colossians 3:15

King James Version

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Colossians 3:16

King James Version

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 3:17

King James Version

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Colossians 3:18-19

King James Version

18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

Colossians 3:20

King James Version

20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

Colossians 3:21

King James Version

21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

Colossians 3:22

King James Version

22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;

Colossians 3:23-24

King James Version

23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

We can accomplish all these, if we are born again.

That helps us become spiritually-discerning.

We are to be childlike with JESUS.

That makes us teachable.

SPIRIT will guide us to CHRIST.

That connects us to GOD.

We are to guard us against the sins of the flesh.

That we may be holy.

The gospel is nonnegotiable.

GOD's laws are clear.

To the humble, teachable, repentant heart.

Who seeks only to be with CHRIST.

Knowing his citizenship is not here.

But only with CHRIST.

BLAMELESS not clueless


Philippians 2:13-15

King James Version

13 For it is God which worketh in you both 

to will and to do of his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless,

 the sons of God, without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

How must a born again be?

He must be blameless, not clueless.

The HOLY SPIRIT will see to that.

These verses tell us more:

Leviticus 19:1-2

King James Version

19 And the Lord spake unto Moses, 


2 Speak unto all the congregation 

of the children of Israel, 

and say unto them, 

Ye shall be holy: 

for I the Lord your God am holy.

Matthew 5:48

King James Version

48 Be ye therefore perfect, 

even as your Father which is in heaven 

is perfect.

1 Corinthians 1:4-8

King James Version

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, 

for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, 

in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

7 So that ye come behind in no gift; 

waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, 

that ye may be blameless 

in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 2:14-16

King James Version

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, 

the sons of God, 

without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; 

that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, 

that I have not run in vain, 

neither laboured in vain.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-23

King James Version

5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, 

ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that 

the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; 

then sudden destruction cometh upon them, 

as travail upon a woman with child; 

and they shall not escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, 

that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, 

and the children of the day: 

we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; 

but let us watch and be sober.

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; 

and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, 

be sober, 

putting on the breastplate of faith and love; 

and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, 

but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, 

whether we wake or sleep, 

we should live together with him.

11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, 

and edify one another, even as also ye do.

12 And we beseech you, brethren, 

to know them which labour among you, 

and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

13 And to esteem them very highly in love 

for their work's sake. 

And be at peace among yourselves.

14 Now we exhort you, brethren, 

warn them that are unruly, 

comfort the feebleminded, 

support the weak, 

be patient toward all men.

15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; 

but ever follow that which is good, 

both among yourselves, and to all men.

16 Rejoice evermore.

17 Pray without ceasing.

18 In every thing give thanks: 

for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

19 Quench not the Spirit.

20 Despise not prophesyings.

21 Prove all things; 

hold fast that which is good.

22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless unto the coming 

of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 3:1-13

King James Version

3 This is a true saying, 

if a man desire the office of a bishop, 

he desireth a good work.

2 A bishop then must be blameless, 

the husband of one wife, 

vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, 

given to hospitality, apt to teach;

3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; 

but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

4 One that ruleth well his own house, 

having his children in subjection with all gravity;

5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, 

how shall he take care of the church of God?)

6 Not a novice, 

lest being lifted up with pride he fall 

into the condemnation of the devil.

7 Moreover he must have a good report 

of them which are without; 

lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, 

not doubletongued, 

not given to much wine, 

not greedy of filthy lucre;

9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

10 And let these also first be proved; 

then let them use the office of a deacon, 

being found blameless.

11 Even so must their wives be grave, 

not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, 

ruling their children and their own houses well.

13 For they that have used the office of a deacon 

well purchase to themselves a good degree, 

and great boldness in the faith 

which is in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 5:1-7

King James Version

5 Rebuke not an elder, 

but intreat him as a father; 

and the younger men as brethren;

2 The elder women as mothers; 

the younger as sisters, 

with all purity.

3 Honour widows that are widows indeed.

4 But if any widow have children or nephews, 

let them learn first to shew piety at home, 

and to requite their parents: 

for that is good and acceptable before God.

5 Now she that is a widow indeed, 

and desolate, 

trusteth in God, 

and continueth in supplications and prayers 

night and day.

6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

7 And these things give in charge, 

that they may be blameless.

Titus 1:6

King James Version

6 If any be blameless, 

the husband of one wife, 

having faithful children 

not accused of riot or unruly.

Titus 1:7-11

King James Version

7 For a bishop must be blameless, 

as the steward of God; 

not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, 

no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

8 But a lover of hospitality, 

a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught,

 that he may be able by sound doctrine 

both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers,

specially they of the circumcision:

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, 

who subvert whole houses, 

teaching things which they ought not,

 for filthy lucre's sake.

2 Peter 3:13-14

King James Version

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.
