As Jesus went into Capernaum, a centurion came up to Him, begging Him for help, and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, with intense and terrible, tormenting pain.”
Matthew 8:5-6 (AMP)

Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” But the centurion replied to Him, “Lord, I am not worthy to have You come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man subject to authority of a higher rank, with soldiers subject to me; and I say to one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.”

Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then He got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.
Matthew 8:26 (NLT)

What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.
Hebrews 11:1 (TLB)


They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!
II Timothy 3:5 (NLT)

Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted.

Matthew 15:8 (NLT)

And I’m not changing my position on this. I’d die before taking your money. I’m giving nobody grounds for lumping me in with those money-grubbing “preachers,” vaunting themselves as something special. They’re a sorry bunch, pseudo-apostles, lying preachers, crooked workers, posing as Christ’s agents but sham to the core. And no wonder! satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light. So it shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. But they’re not getting by with anything. They’ll pay for it in the end.
II Corinthians 11:12-15 (MSG)

I John 3:6 (TLB)

Oh, dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: if you are constantly doing what is good, it is because you are good, even as He is. But if you keep on sinning, it shows that you belong to satan, who since he first began to sin has kept steadily at it. But The Son of God came to destroy these works of the devil. The person who has been born into God’s family does not make a practice of sinning because now God’s Life is in him; so he can’t keep on sinning, for this new life has been born into him and controls him, he has been born again.
I John 3:7-9 (TLB)

So now we can tell who is a child of God and who belongs to satan. Whoever is living a life of sin and doesn’t love his brother shows that he is not in God’s family; for the message to us from the beginning has been that we should love one another.
I John 3:10-11 (TLB)

Matthew 7:22-23 (TLB)

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, (that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior), he is a new creature (reborn and renewed by The Holy Spirit); the old things (the previous moral and spiritual condition) have passed away. Behold, new things have come because spiritual awakening brings a new life.
II Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)

He measured The City with the measuring stick: twelve thousand stadia, its length, width, and height all equal. Using the standard measure, The Angel measured the thickness of its wall: 144 cubits. The wall as jasper, the color of Glory, and The city was pure gold, translucent as glass. The foundations of The City walls were garnished with every precious gem imaginable: the first foundation jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eight beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate a single pearl.
Revelation 21:18-20 (MSG)

The main street of The City was pure gold, translucent as glass. But there was no sign of a Temple, for The Lord God, The Sovereign-Strong, and The Lamb are The Temple. The City doesn’t need sun or moon for light. God’s Glory is its light, the Lamb its lamp! The nations will walk in its light and earth’s kings bring in their splendor. Its gates will never be shut by day, and there won’t be any night. They’ll bring the glory and honor of the nations into The City. Nothing dirty or defiled will get into the City, and no one who defiles or deceives. Only those whose names are written in The Lamb’s Book of Life will get in.
Revelation 21:21-27 (MSG)

Matthew 12:48-50 (MSG)
