Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:…

“From John to the seven churches in western Turkey: May the kindness of God’s grace and peace overflow to you from him who is, and who was, and who is coming, and from the seven spirits who are in front of his throne, and from Jesus Christ the Faithful Witness, the Firstborn from among the dead and the ruling King, who rules over the kings of the earth!

Now to the one who constantly loves us and has loosed us from our sins by his own blood, and to the one who has appointed us as a kingdom of priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and dominion throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen!”

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭1:4-6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Luke 4:23 KJVA

“Is it hard to understand that whatever you eat enters the stomach only to pass out into the sewer?

But what comes out of your mouth reveals the core of your heart.

Words can pollute, not food.

You will find living within an impure heart evil ideas, murderous thoughts, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, lies, and slander.

That’s what pollutes a person.

Eating with unwashed hands doesn’t defile anyone.””

Matthew 15:17-20 TPT

“For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.”

Matthew 3:8 KJVA

https://www.bible.com/546/mat.3.8.kjva

“The crowd kept asking him, “What then are we supposed to do?”

John told them, “Give food to the hungry, clothe the poor, and bless the needy.”

Even the despised tax collectors came to John to be baptized, and they asked him, “What are we to do to prove our hearts have changed?”

“Be honest,” he replied.

“Don’t demand more taxes than what you are required to collect.”

“And us?” asked some soldiers.

“What about us?” John answered them, “Be content with what you earn.

Never extort money or terrify others by threats of violence or be guilty of accusing the innocent.””

Luke 3:10-14 TPT

“For word came unto the king of Nin´eveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.

And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nin´eveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.

Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?

And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.”

Jonah 3:6-10 KJVA

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.”

“But they couldn’t turn back for their hearts were fixed on what was far greater, that is, the heavenly realm!

So because of this God is not ashamed in any way to be called their God, for he has prepared a heavenly city for them.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:16‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Through faith’s power they conquered kingdoms and established true justice.

Their faith fastened onto their promises and pulled them into reality!

It was faith that shut the mouth of lions, put out the power of raging fire, and caused many to escape certain death by the sword.

Although weak, their faith imparted power to make them strong!

Faith sparked courage within them and they became mighty warriors in battle, pulling armies from another realm into battle array.

Faith-filled women saw their dead children raised in resurrection power.

Yet it was faith that enabled others to endure great atrocities.

They were stretched out on the wheel and tortured, and didn’t deny their faith in order to be freed, because they longed for a more honorable and glorious resurrection!

Others were mocked and experienced the most severe beating with whips; they were in chains and imprisoned.

Some of these faith champions were brutally killed by stoning, being sawn in two or slaughtered by the sword.

These lived in faith as they went about wearing goatskins and sheepskins for clothing.

They lost everything they possessed, they endured great afflictions, and they were cruelly mistreated.

They wandered the earth living in the desert wilderness, in caves, on barren mountains and in holes in the earth.

Truly, the world was not even worthy of them, not realizing who they were.

These were the true heroes, commended for their faith, yet they lived in hope without receiving the fullness of what was promised them.

But now God has invited us to live in something better than what they had—faith’s fullness!

This is so that they could be brought to finished perfection alongside of us.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:33-40‬ ‭TPT‬‬

https://www.bible.com/1849/heb.11.33-40.tpt

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-8‬ ‭KJVA‬‬

https://www.bible.com/546/pro.3.5-8.kjva

“Love is large and incredibly patient.

Love is gentle and consistently kind to all.

It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else.

Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance.

For now we see but a faint reflection of riddles and mysteries as though reflected in a mirror, but one day we will see face-to-face.

My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything, just as everything about me has been fully understood.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4, 12‬ ‭TPT‬‬

https://www.bible.com/1849/1co.13.4,12.tpt

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
