Jn.10:14-18 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the
Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay
down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down,
and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
I Cor.10:24 Let no man seek his own,
but every man another's wealth.
Phil.2:3,4 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of
mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things
2. Jn.11:21-27 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall
rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said unto her,
I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth
and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ,
the Son of God, which should come into the world.
I Cor.15:52-58 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible
must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed
up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of
sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren,
be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain
in the Lord.
3. Isa.11:6-8 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall
feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play
on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
Isa.65:25 The wolf and the
lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall

neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall
he guide them.

5. Ps.103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases.
Matt.4:24 And his
fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments,
and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

went virtue out of him, and healed them all.
6. Isa.53:1-7 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm
of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form
nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him
not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD
hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought
as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take
away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.
Matt.5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Heb.2:14 Forasmuch then as the children
are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him
that had the power of death, that is, the devil.
7. Isa.21:1-5 The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds
in the south pass through; so it cometh from the desert, from a terrible land. A grievous vision is declared unto me; the
treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler spoileth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof
have I made to cease. Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that
travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it. My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted
me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me. Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise,
ye princes, and anoint the shield.
Mic.4:1-8 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house
of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow
unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the
God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the
word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall
beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither
shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them
afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and
we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth,
and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her
that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever. And
thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the
kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
8. Isa.65:22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they
shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the
work of their hands.

tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And
the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell [or grave] delivered up the dead which were in them: and they
were judged every man according to their works.

they had not been.

that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave
them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;
and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall [unto the full stature of GOD’S purpose]. And ye shall tread
down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
11. Jn.14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are
many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place
for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Eze.34:11-15 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search
my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered;
so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark
day. And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land,
and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them
in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in
a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith
the Lord GOD.

the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.
14. Ex.25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary;
that I may dwell among them.

of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall
be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore
comfort one another with these words.
Rev.21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle
of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be
