unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are
saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in

as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Galatians 1:6-12 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into
the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some
that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel
from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto
you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach
any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do
I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men,
I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel
which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither
was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him,
How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's
womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man
be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will
Colossians 3:1-6 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above,
not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in
God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him
in glory. 5Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication,
uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is
idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
2 Peter 1:5-7 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and

come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And
whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
2 Peter1:8-11 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall
neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he
that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that
he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to
make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
