                                      HOW DO I GET TO HEAVEN?
                              
 

 









"Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:" "But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:" Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. "Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black." "But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil."
"Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;" "And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;"
"But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?" "Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:" "And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:" "But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body." "All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds." "There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another." "There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory." So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: "It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body."
"Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;" "That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:" But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
"Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?" "Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven." "Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants." "And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents." "But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made." "The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all." "Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt." "But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest." "And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all." "And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt." "So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done." "Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:" "Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?" "And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him." "So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses."
"This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner." "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus."
"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;" "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 which thou gavest me I have given 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; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me."
"And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities." "Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples," "And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?" "Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:" "The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them." "And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me." "And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?" "But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses." "But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet." "For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee." "Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he." "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force." For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. "And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come." "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."
"For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit." "For the body is not one member, but many." "If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?" "And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?" "If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?" "But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him." "And if they were all one member, where were the body?" "But now are they many members, yet but one body." "And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you." "Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:" "And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness." "For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked." That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. "And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it." "Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular."
"Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:" "For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three." "The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."
"Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;" "But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God." "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:" "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake." "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us."
"Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;" "Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow." "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." "If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:" "But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it."
"I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing." "Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds." "For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you? forgive me this wrong."
"Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations." "For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs." Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. "Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand." One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. "He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks." "For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself."
"Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;" "But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God." "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:" "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake." "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us."

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."
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
"O lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure." "For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore." There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. "Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee." "My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me."
"For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:" "Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself."
