THE ELDERS OF THE CHURCH - THE MIRACLES OF THE NEW TESTAMENT


THE ELDERS OF THE CHURCH

 1 TIMOTHY CHAPTER 3

                 VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

1) Here is a trustworthy saying: aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task.

2) Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,

3) Not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.

4) He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect.

5) (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)

6) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil.

7) He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.

 

                      JAMES CHAPTER 5

                        VERSE, 14, 15

14) Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the LORD.

15) And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the LORD will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.

 

            1 THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 5

                     VERSE, 12, 13

12) Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the LORD and who admonish you.

13) Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.

 

                  HEBREWS CHAPTER 13

                          VERSE 17

17) Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.

 

            1 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 14

                      VERSE, 32, 33

32) The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets.

33) For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.

 

                    ACTS CHAPTER 20

                 VERSE, 28, 29, 30, 31

28) Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.

29) I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.

30) Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.

31) So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.

 

                      MARK CHAPTER 9

                          VERSE 42

42) “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.

 

                 1 TIMOTHY CHAPTER 5

                     VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4

1) Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers,

2) Older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.

3) Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need.

4) But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.

 

                 GALATIANS CHAPTER 6

                  VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

1) Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.

2) Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

3) If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.

4) Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else,

5) For each one should carry their own load.

6) Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.

 

                     1 PETER CHAPTER 5

                      VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

1) To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and witness of Christ’s suffering who also will share in the glory to be revealed:

20) Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God want you to be: not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;

3) Not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.

4) And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

5) In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”

 

            DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 19

                     VERSE, 11, 12, 13

11) But if out of hate someone lies in wait, assaults and kills a neighbor, and then flees to one of these cities,

12) The Killer shall be send for by the town elders, be brought back from the city, and be handed over to the avenger of blood to die.

13) Show no pity. You must purge from Israel the guilt of shedding innocent blood, so that it may go well with you.

 

                MATTHEW CHAPTER 18

                           VERSE 18

18) “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

 

                 1 TIMOTHY CHAPTER 5

                       VERSE, 17, 18

17) The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.

18) For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.”

 

                2 CHRONICLES CHAPTER 10

                       VERSE, 6, 7, 8, 9

6) The King Rehoboam consulted the elders who had served his father Solomon during his lifetime. “How would you advise me to answer these people? He asked.

7) They replied. “If you will be kind to these people and please them and give them a favorable answer, they will always be your servants.”

8) But Rehoboam rejected the advice the elders gave him and consulted the young men who had grown up with him and were serving him.

9) He asked them, “What is your advice? How should we answer these people who say to me? Lighten the yoke your father put on us?

 

                  REVELATION CHAPTER 4

                         VERSE, 9, 10, 11

9) Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives forever and ever,

10) The twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

11) “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”

 

                   GENESIS CHAPTER 25

                 VERSE, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

12) This is the account of the family line Abraham’s son Ishmael, whom Sara’s slave, Hagar the Egyptian, bore to Abraham.

13) These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, listen in the order of their birth: Nebaioth the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbel, Mibhma,

14) Mishma, Dumah, Massa,

15) Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah.

16) These were the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of the twelve tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps.

 

                   GENISIS CHAPTER 35

                 VERSE, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26

22) While Israel was living in the region, Reuben went in and slept with his father’s concubine Bilham, and Israel heard of it. Jacob had twelve sons:

23) The sons of Leah: Reuben the firstborn of Jacob, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun.

24) The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.

25) The sons of Rachel’s servant Bilhah: Dan and Naphtali.

26) The sons of Leah’s servant Zipah: Gad and Asher. These were the sons of Jacob, who were born to him in Paddan Aram.


THE MIRACLES OF THE NEW TESTAMENT

 

 

                           JOHN CHAPTER 2

                            VERSE, 6, 7, 8, 9

6) Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

7) Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.

8) Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”They did so,

9) And the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside

                         VERSE, 20, 21

                        VERSE, 17, 18

17) And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;

18) They will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

 

                        MARK CHAPTER 6

                            VERSE, 12, 13

12) They went out and preached that people should repent.

13) They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

 

                       LUKE CHAPTER 8

                   VERSE, 22, 23, 24, 25

22) One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out.

23) As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.

24) The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown! He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm.

25) “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”

 

                        LUKE CHAPTER 8

                           VERSE, 43, 44

43) And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her.

44) She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

 

 

                         LUKE CHAPTER 4

                            VERSE, 38, 39

38) Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Now Simon’s mother –in –law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her.

                       MARK CHAPTER 7

                     VERSE, 32, 33, 34, 35

32) There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place his hand on him.

33) After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then he spit and touched the man’s tongue.

34) He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!”(Which means “Be opened?”

35) At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.

 

 

                 MATTHEW CHAPTER 17

                        VERSE, 19, 20, 21

19) Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”

20) He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

21) “However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.

 

                         ACTS CHAPTER 5

                           VERSE, 15, 16

15) As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.

1) They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.

2) When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him.

3) This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain.

4) For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.

 

                        MARK CHAPTER 2

                          VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4

1) A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home.

2) They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.

3) Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them.

4) Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on.

 

                  MATTHEW CHAPTER 14

                    VERSE, 28, 29, 30, 31

28) “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

                      LUKE CHAPTER 7

                   VERSE, 12, 13, 14, 15

12) As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her.

13) When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”

14) Then he went up and touched the bier they were carrying him on, and the bearers stood still. He said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!

15) The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.

 

                      LUKE CHAPTER 8

                   VERSE, 53, 54, 55, 56

53) They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead.

54) But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!”

50) “Go,” Jesus replied, “your son will live.” The man took Jesus at his word and departed.

51) While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living.

52) When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.”

 

                        ACTS CHAPTER 9

                              VERSE 40

40) Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.

                       JOHN CHAPTER 21

                                VERSE 25

25) Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
