For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then
shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and
how shall they hear without a preacher? and how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are
the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the
gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
Romans 10:13-16 (AKJV)
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please
men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was
preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus
Christ. - Galatians 1:10-12 (AKJV)
Find Rest Unto Your Souls
unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am
meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Give ear, O ye heavens,
and I will speak;
and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
My doctrine shall drop as the rain,
my speech shall
distil as the dew,
as the small rain upon the tender herb,
and as the showers upon the grass:
because I will
publish the name of the Lord:
ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
He is the Rock, his work is perfect:
his ways are judgment:
a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
Deuteronomy 32:1-4 (AKJV)
The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Day unto day uttereth speech,
and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
There is no speech nor
where their voice is not heard.
Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to
the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
His going forth is from the end of the heaven,
circuit unto the ends of it:
and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and
wherein ye stand; by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: - 1 Corinthians
Whom shall he teach knowledge?
shall he make to understand doctrine?
them that are weaned from the milk,
and drawn from the breasts.
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon
line upon line, line upon line;
a little, and there a little:
for with stammering lips and another tongue
will he speak
to this people.
To whom he said,This is the rest wherewith ye
may cause the weary to rest;
and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
