Definitions & Meanings
Whatever has come to be has
already been named, and it is
known what man is, and that he is
not able to dispute with one
stronger than he.
Before I formed you in the womb I
knew you, and before you were born
I consecrated you; I appointed you
a prophet to the nations.
I the Lord search the heart and
test the mind, to give every man
according to his ways, according
to the fruit of his deeds.
For I know the plans I have for
you, declares the Lord, plans for
welfare and not for evil, to give
you a future and a hope.
But concerning that day or that
hour, no one knows, not even the
angels in heaven, nor the Son, but
only the Father. Be on guard, keep
awake. For you do not know when
the time will come. It is like a
man going on a journey, when he
leaves home and puts his servants
in charge, each with his work, and
commands the doorkeeper to stay
awake. Therefore stay awake—for
you do not know when the master of
the house will come, in the
evening, or at midnight, or when
the rooster crows, or in the
morning— lest he come suddenly and
find you asleep. ...
But watch yourselves lest your
hearts be weighed down with
dissipation and drunkenness and
cares of this life, and that day
come upon you suddenly like a
trap. For it will come upon all
who dwell on the face of the whole
earth. But stay awake at all
times, praying that you may have
strength to escape all these
things that are going to take
place, and to stand before the Son
Truly, truly, I say to you,
whoever hears my word and believes
him who sent me has eternal life.
He does not come into judgment,
but has passed from death to life.
Truly, truly, I say to you,
whoever believes has eternal life.
For those whom he foreknew he also
predestined to be conformed to the
image of his Son, in order that he
might be the firstborn among many
For “everyone who calls on the
name of the Lord will be saved.”
Therefore do not pronounce
judgment before the time, before
the Lord comes, who will bring to
light the things now hidden in
darkness and will disclose the
purposes of the heart. Then each
one will receive his commendation
(1 Corinthians 4:5)
Even as he chose us in him before
the foundation of the world, that
we should be holy and blameless
before him. In love he predestined
us for adoption as sons through
Jesus Christ, according to the
purpose of his will,
In him we have obtained an
inheritance, having been
predestined according to the
purpose of him who works all
things according to the counsel of
For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good
works, which God prepared
beforehand, that we should walk in
And just as it is appointed for
man to die once, and after that
But by the same word the heavens
and earth that now exist are
stored up for fire, being kept
until the day of judgment and
destruction of the ungodly.
(2 Peter 3:7)
But the day of the Lord will come
like a thief, and then the heavens
will pass away with a roar, and
the heavenly bodies will be burned
up and dissolved, and the earth
and the works that are done on it
will be exposed.
(2 Peter 3:10)
Beloved, we are God's children
now, and what we will be has not
yet appeared; but we know that
when he appears we shall be like
him, because we shall see him as
(1 John 3:2)
