“But I (the Lord Jesus Christ) tell you (my apostles and my disciplines) the (absolute) truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (the Paraclete…God the Holy Spirit) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.”
“But when He, (God) the (Holy) Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth…”
At that time the disciples came to (the Lord) Jesus (Christ) and said, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”//And He (the Lord Jesus Christ) called a child to Himself and set him (the child) before them…
…and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted (the same way this believing child was converted…by his own faith) and (unless you) become like children (using non-meritorious perception to learn), you will not enter the kingdom of heaven (in eternity).”
YOU REBOUND…GOD RESTORES YOU TO YOUR RESIDENCE
If we believers in Christ admit (name or cite) our known sins to God the Father, He is faithful (He always does the same thing) and He is righteous (free from sin Himself and thus completely qualified) to forget our known sins, and to cleanse us from our unknown sins as well.
(An epistle from) Peter, an apostle of (the Lord) Jesus Christ, to those who reside as aliens (Jewish believers dispersed throughout the Roman provinces), scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, who are chosen (elect ones…believers)…
…according to the foreknowledge of God the Father (his plan for mankind), by the sanctifying work of (God) the (Holy) Spirit, to obey (the Lord) Jesus Christ (in response to the gospel message) and be sprinkled with His blood (from His substitutionary spiritual death): May grace and peace be yours (put in place by God) in the fullest measure (multiplied for your benefit).
He (the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior) saved us (once, and for all time), not (NEVER…ouk) on the basis of deeds which we have done in (self) righteousness, but according to His mercy (grace in action), by the washing of regeneration and renewing (anakainosis) by (God) the Holy Spirit…
The Word of God is alive and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, of the joints and marrow, and is a critic of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
All Scripture is God breathed (theoneustos) and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be mature, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own (private) interpretation, and no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men carried along by God the Holy Spirit spoke directly from the exact thinking of THE God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Study to show yourself approved unto God as a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and (gnosis) knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments (mandates) and unfathomable His ways!
For I (Paul) testify about them (the Jews) that they have a zeal for God, but not in accordance with (epignosis) knowledge (the truth believed).
But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.
…my message and my preaching (eloquence) were not in persuasive words of wisdom (sophia), but in demonstration of (God) the Spirit and of (the) power (of His omnipotence…the filling of the Spirit),//so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
…which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom (sophia…rationalism and empiricism), but in those (things) taught by (God) the (Holy) Spirit (through faith), combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
