for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction

1 Thessalonians 2:7-8

List 5

Job 1:21

And naked I shall return there.

Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Psalm 1:3

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.

Psalm 2:7,12

“I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son,

For His wrath may soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

List 7

Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Lift your voice for understanding;
If you seek her as silver
And search for her as for hidden treasures;

And discover the knowledge of God.

List 8

Joshua 1:6,9

Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 2:8-11

Now before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof, and said to the men, “I know that the Lord has given you the land, and that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. When we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.

List 9

And the loftiness of man will be humbled,
And the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

Acts 1:14

These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer, along with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

Acts 2:22-24, 42

“Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know— this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death. But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.

They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
