Psa_147:11 WEB  Yahweh takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his loving kindness.

Psa_147:11 The Lord takes pleasure [εὐδοκεῖ] in them that fear Him, and in all that hope in His mercy.

Psa_147:11  (146:11) εὐδοκεῖ κύριος ἐν τοῖς φοβουμένοις αὐτὸν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἐλπίζουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ.





Be Who You Are




He who has had a bath only needs feet washed

You are already clean through the word I spoke to you


1Co_5:7 CAB  Purge out the old leaven, in order that you may be a new batch of dough, since you are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.

1Co_5:7  ἐκκαθάρατε οὖν τὴν παλαιὰν ζύμην, ἵνα ἦτε νέον φύραμα, καθώς ἐστε ἄζυμοι. καὶ γὰρ τὸ πάσχα ἡμῶν ὑπ,ὲρ ἡμῶν ἐτύθη Χριστός·

1Co_5:7  εκκαθαρατε TSουν την παλαιαν ζυμην ινα ητε νεον φυραμα καθως εστε αζυμοι και γαρ το πασχα ημων TSBυπερ TSBημων Sεθυθη TBAετυθη χριστος

1Co_5:8 So then let us observe the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1Co_5:8  ὥστε ἑορτάζωμεν μὴ ἐν ζύμῃ παλαιᾷ, μηδὲ ἐν ζύμῃ κακίας καὶ πονηρίας, ἀλλ᾿ ἐν ἀζύμοις εἰλικρινείας καὶ ἀληθείας.

√ GNT-v




As many as have been baptized have put on christ

Galatians You are all children of Abraham and hers of the promise by faith

Jesus is Able









A Short Introduction & Explanation



Although God's Word often challenges us to see if we are in the faith in the first place, for those who have truly repented of their sins, forsaken everything, and gone to the extreme to follow Jesus, there is also much need for encouragement. Thankfully the Bible is overflowing with this as well. This compilation contains my personal list of the most encouraging verses in the Bible that have given me assurance, confidence, renewal, and hope.


If you have not already read Salvation Basics, please consider reading that short document first to be sure that these verses will apply to you. Then, when you are sure that they do, you can have all the more confidence and encouragement from reading this compilation. But in short, if you meet the above description in the introductory paragraph, (that is, you are following and obeying Jesus) then these verses certainly apply to you, and I pray that they will encourage and revolutionize you as much as they have me.


No condemnation

any charge


He has perfected forever...


this is love


But God demonstrates... Rom 5:8


As the Father has loved me so have I [phileoed] you


He who has my commands and obeys them...


take my yoke upon you


be anxious for nothing


do not fear him who can kill the body...


we love him because He first loved us


1jn 2-3


Jesus' speach


Abraham friend

rejoice over you as fathers



Joshua in tent

phinias and spear


must believe rewarder

[got to believe the He's good]


Sometimes it is encouraging to lament (to morn), or just to read those who do, and to know you’re not the only one who feels like that

The worst thing is to be eaten up with unresolved disappointments and frustrations without expressing it to God.


we are dust


if you counted sins who could satand mercy


point of death...

not to point of blood shead


Joseph's spirit revived


For more, consider reading some Psalms of Crying out to God for your devotional time every day:



I hope these have lifted you up and let you percieve the good truth of God wich is ablr to change you and make you alive with hope.

Why not print this out and highlight the ones that you think God is specifically wanting to use in your life. If I were you, I would select a number of these verses and read/pray through them every day. This is how I have lived for years, and this is the only thing that keeps me going often, and rescues me from all kinds of darkness and depression. Remember the exhortation quoted above above: “meditate on these things.” Let me encourage you to do this intentionally at least in some why, because if it came with out intentionality, then he would not have had to exhort us in this way.

1Co 8:3 LB  But if anyone loves God, this one has been known by Him.

1Co 8:3  ει δε τις αγαπα τον θεον ουτος εγνωσται υπ αυτου



Favorable Rejoicing

5/8/17; 5/23/17


There should be way more rejoicing than what we have seen go on so far among us.


Reasons that Rejoicing should be Mega-Upgraded now in the New Covenant

There is a reason that the new testament has more rejoicing than the old testament.

To end the old testament they were going to hell.

That’s a lot of reason to be very somber.

If you had to die and go away from the living, dying is not something you look forward to at all, really.

The only hope you can really have is that God will not leave your soul and hell forever.

The in the new testament you can actually get to believe you will be with Jesus if you die!


Now that God’s favor has been mega opened up to humanity, humans have much more reason to rejoice if they believe.




Jacob: depressed - and going to hell

Paul: rejoicing at the thought of dying - going away to be with  Anointed one!


there is supposed to be more favorable rejoicing now and the new Covenant now that anointed one has worked out more favor then was ever given toward men previously.


Big Goal: be sad when it has been assigned to you like Jobe and Joseph's initial seasons of humiliation.

do not be sad when righteousness has called you to rejoice in prison with Paul and Silas through your trial.

if you have more of a real reason to Rejoice then to be sad, take heed that you rejoice!

No Condemnation Passages

~2001-2004?; 3/6/17 (recompiled)


NIV > CAB -- needed


RO 4:4 Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. [5] However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness. [6] David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:


  RO 4:7 "Blessed are they

    whose transgressions are forgiven,

    whose sins are covered.


  RO 4:8 Blessed is the man

    whose sin the Lord will never count against him."


RO 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? [32] He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all--how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? [33] Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. [34] Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. [35] Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? [36] As it is written:


  "For your sake we face death all day long;

    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."


RO 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. [38] For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, [39] neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


JUDE 1:24 To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy-- [25] to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.


RO 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, [2] because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. [3] For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, [4] in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.



1JN 3:19 This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence [20] whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

    1JN 3:21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God [22] and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him. [23] And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. [24] Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.



HEB 4:14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. [15] For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin. [16] Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.


HEB 10:21 ...and since we have a great priest over the house of God, [22] let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. [23] Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.


HEB 10:35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. [36] You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. [37] For in just a very little while,

  "He who is coming will come and will not delay.

    HEB 10:38 But my righteous one will live by faith.

  And if he shrinks back,

    I will not be pleased with him."

HEB 10:39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.



RO 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, [2] through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. [3] Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; [4] perseverance, character; and character, hope. [5] And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

    RO 5:6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. [7] Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. [8] But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

    RO 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! [10] For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! [11] Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

    RO 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned-- [13] for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law. [14] Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come.

    RO 5:15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God's grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! [16] Again, the gift of God is not like the result of the one man's sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. [17] For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.

    RO 5:18 Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men. [19] For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.

The kindness and goodness of God is a totally amazing uncomprehendable thing, but taken out of context and perverted, it (then being of a different substance in the wrong hands) is a deceptive and deadly device.  The pervert will say "the goodness of God" but will descibe and teach the leven of the Pharisees.  And just as God is sickened by the devil quoting scripture, He is offended at the one who abuses the teaching of His goodnes, something so infinatly good, to bring about a lie and perversion.


The people that God relates to threwout the Bible, can be broken down into 3 consistant theems.

The Saint, the Sinner, and the hipocrite, (the Saint being the best and the hipocrite the worst);  are the three types of people that God lays forth in the scriptures.  Gods diplomacy of relating to these three categories of people, are stunningly contrasting all based one which type of person they are.  Threw the awarness of the repetitive Biblical categorization of these three types of people, we can see a constant exreeme diferance in how to treate people.
