Pentecost 2020 scriptures

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20 NIV)

But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.” (1 Corinthians 15:20 NLT)

That the Messiah would suffer and be the first to rise from the dead, and in this way announce God’s light to Jews and Gentiles alike. (Acts 26:23 NLT)

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8 NLT)

On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. (Acts 2:1–3 NLT)

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. (Exodus 14:21 NKJV)

For the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being. (Job 12:10 NLT)

The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit. (John 3:8 NLT)

The Lord, the Light of Israel, will be a fire; the Holy One will be a flame. (Isaiah 10:17a NLT)

But who will be able to endure it when he comes? Who will be able to stand and face him when he appears? For he will be like a blazing fire that refines metal, or like a strong soap that bleaches clothes. (Malachi 3:2 NLT)

For our God is a devouring fire. (Hebrews 12:29 NLT) His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. (Revelation 1:14 NLT)

So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless. (1 Corinthians 15:58 NLT)

Come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. (Psalm 95:1 NLT)

The men of Israel saw what a tight spot they were in; and because they were hard pressed by the enemy, they tried to hide in caves, thickets, rocks, holes, and cisterns. (1 Samuel 13:6 NLT)

I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. (Psalm 121:1-3 NLT)

He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. (Psalm 62:6–7 NLT)

My heart rejoices in the Lord! The Lord has made me strong. Now I have an answer for my enemies; I rejoice because you rescued me. No one is holy like the Lord! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.” (1 Samuel 2:1-2 NLT)

Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken. (Isaiah 28:16 NLT)

Scriptures for “Jesus: God of creation” (May 17th 2020)

God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. (Ephesians 1:22)

As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” (Mark 4:35 NLT)

So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). (Mark 4:36 NLT)

But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” (Mark 4:37-38 NLT)

You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly. (Proverbs 3:24 NLT)

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe. (Psalm 4:8 NLT)

Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith? (Mark 4:40 NLT).

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 NLT)

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. (1 John 5:4 NLT)

When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. (Mark 4:39 NLT).

The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!” (Luke 8:25).

(2 Chronicles 31:20-21 NLT)

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.
