“[WHO IS AMONG YOU THAT FEARETH] the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, [THAT WALKETH IN DARKNESS, AND HATH NO LIGHT]? Let him [TRUST IN THE NAME] of the LORD, and [STAY UPON HIS GOD]” (Isaiah 50:10).
Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles who preached the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST said: “For I am not ashamed of the [GOSPEL OF CHRIST]: for [IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERYONE THAT BELIEVETH]; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: [THAT YOUR FAITH SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WISDOM OF MEN, BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).
“[AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS], but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light” (Ephesians 5:11–13).
“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ [FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS TO THEM THAT PERISH FOOLISHNESS; BUT UNTO US WHICH ARE SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD]. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:18–19, 21).
“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]” (2 Corinthians 4:3-6).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (2 Thessalonians 3:18).
