Matthew 28:

16 Now the eleven Disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain

            to which Jesus had directed and made appointment with them.

17               And when they saw Him, they fell down and worshiped Him;

                          but some doubted.

18                Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them,

                            “All authority (all power of rule) in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Me.

19                         Go then and make Disciples of all the nations,

                                    baptizing them into the name

                                         of The Father

                                         and of The Son

                                         and of The Holy Spirit,

20                                teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you,

                                    and behold, I am with you all the days,

                                           to the [very] close and consummation of the age.

                                    Amen (so let it be).”

Exhortations for Changes

Matthew 3:

1   In those days there appeared John the Baptist,

           preaching in the Wilderness (Desert) of Judea

2              and saying, “Repent

                                (think differently; change your mind,

                                     regretting your sins and changing your conduct),

                      for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

3         This is he who was mentioned by the Prophet Isaiah when he said,

                “The voice of one crying in the wilderness (shouting in the desert),

                      ‘Prepare the road for The Lord, make His highways straight’ (level, direct).”

4         This {same} John's garments were made of camel's hair,

                 and he wore a leather girdle about his waist;

                 and his food was locusts and wild honey.

***What was John the Baptist background?

            What was his first home probably like?

                    Why would an individual give up such to live primitively?

Matthew 4:

12    Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested and put in prison,

                 He withdrew into Galilee.

13                   And leaving Nazareth, He went and dwelt in Capernaum by the Sea,

                           in the country of Zebulun and Naphtali--

14                           that what was spoken by the Prophet Isaiah might be brought to pass:

15                                the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,

                                         in the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles

                                             [of the peoples who are not of Israel]--

16                           the people who sat (dwelt enveloped) in darkness have seen a great Light,

                                   and for those who sat in the land and shadow of death Light has dawned.

17                           From that time Jesus began to preach, crying out, “Repent

                                           (change your mind for the better, heartily amend your ways,

                                                 with abhorrence of your past sins),

                                     for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

***Why was John the Baptist arrested and killed?

            What do verses 14-16 mean?

                  How was Jesus Christ preaching the same as John the Baptist was?


Luke 4:

16   So He came to Nazareth, [that Nazareth] where He had been brought up,     

              and He entered the Synagogue, as was His custom on the Sabbath day.          

                  And He stood up to read.

17              And there was handed to Him the Book of the Prophet Isaiah.

                        He opened (unrolled) the book and found the place where it was written,

18                          “The Spirit of The LORD is upon Me,

                                     because He has anointed Me

                                           to preach the good news to the poor;

                                He has sent Me

                                        to announce release to the captives

                                             and recovery of sight to the blind,

                                     to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed

                                          [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity],

19                                 to proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of The LORD”


John 14:

11    ”Believe Me that I am in The Father and The Father is in Me;

               otherwise, believe because of the works themselves.

12               Truly, truly, I say to you, he (or she) who believes in Me,

                        the works that I do, he (or she) will do also;

                             and greater works than these he (or she) will do,

                                   because I go to The Father.

13               Whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do,

                          so that The Father may be glorified in The Son.

14                          If you ask Me anything in My Name, I will do it.

15               If you love (agapè) Me, you will keep My commandments.

16                    I will ask The Father, and He will give you another Helper,

                             that He may be with you forever;

17                              The Spirit Of Truth, Whom the World cannot receive,

                                        because it does not see Him or know Him,

                                   but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you."

***What are the facts in those passages?

             What are the divine promises?

                     What are the conditions or requirements of them?

                           In the whole Bible, there is no Divine Promise

                                that doesn’t have a condition or requirement.
