GOD TEST THE MAN
1 PETER CHAPTER 1
VERSE, 5, 6, 7, 8
5) Who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time?
6) In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
7) These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
8) Though you have not seen him, you love him: and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.
GALATIANS CHAPTER 6
VERSE, 3, 4, 5
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.
MALACHI CHAPTER 3
VERSE, 8, 9, 10
8) Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. “But you ask, how are we robbing you? “In tithes and offerings.
9) You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me.
10) Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the LORD Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
JUDGES CHAPTER 6
VERSE, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40
36) Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised
37) Look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.
38) And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.
39) Then Gideon said to God. Do not be angry with me. Let me make just one more request. Allow me one more test with the fleece, but this time make the fleece dry and let the ground be covered with dew.
40) That night God did so. Only the fleece was dry; all the ground was covered with dew.
1 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 11
VERSE, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30
26) For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
27) So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the LORD in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the LORD.
28) Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup.
29) For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.
30) That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.
1 TIMOTHY CHAPTER 3
VERSE, 8, 9, 10
8) In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect. Sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain.
9) They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience.
10) They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.
1 THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 5
VERSE, 19, 20, 21, 22
19) Do not quench the Spirit.
20) Do not treat prophecies with contempt.
21) But test them all; hold on to what is good.
22) Reject every kind of evil.
DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 8
VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4
1) Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the LORD promised on oath to your ancestors.
2) Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.
3) He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna. Which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
4) Your cloths did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years.
2 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 13
VERSE, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
5) Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?
6) And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test.
7) Now we pray to God that you will not do anything wrong—not so that people will see that we have stood the test but so that you will do what is right even though we may seem to have failed.
8) For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.
9) We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and our prayer is that you may be fully restored.
1 JOHN CHAPTER 4
VERSE, 1, 2, 3
1) Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2) This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God.
3) But every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
1 THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 2
VERSE, 3, 4
3) For the appeal we make does not spring from error or impure motives, nor are we trying to trick you.
4) On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts.
EZEKIEL CHAPTER 10
VERSE, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
6) And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubim; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels.
7) And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubim to the fire that was between the cherubim, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out.
8) And there appeared in the cherubim the form of a man’s hand under their wings.
9) And when I looked, behold the four wheels by the cherubim, one wheel by one cherub, and another wheel by another cherub: and the appearance of the wheels was as the color of a beryl stone.
10) And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the middle of a wheel.
11) When they went, they went on their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place where the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went.
12) And their whole body and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, were full of eyes round about, even the wheels that they four had.
EXODUS CHAPTER 25
VERSE, 18, 19, 20
18) And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of beaten work shall you make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.
19) And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall you make the cherubim on the two ends thereof.
20) And the cherubim shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be.
ISAIAH CHAPTER 6
VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 6, 7
1) In the year that King Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
2) Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he did fly.
3) And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of Hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
6) Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
7) And he laid it on my mouth, and said, See, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.
EXODUS CHAPTER 37
VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
1) And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:
2) And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.
3) And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four corners of it; even two rings on the one side of it, and two rings of the other side of it.
4) And he made staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.
5) And he put staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.
6) And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the breadth thereof.
7) And he made two cherubim of gold, beaten out of one piece made he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;
8) One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the cherubim on the two ends thereof.
9) And the cherubim spread out their wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another; even to the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim.
1 KINGS CHAPTER 6
VERSE, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29
23) And within the oracle he made two cherubim of olive tree, each ten cubits high.
24) And five cubits was the one wing of the cherub, and five cubits the other wing of the cherub: from the uttermost part of the one wing to the uttermost part of the other were ten cubits.
25) And the other cherub was ten cubits: both the cherubim were of one measure and one size.
26) The height of the one cherub was ten cubits, and so was it of the other cherub
27) And he set the cherubim within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubim, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the middle of the house.
28) And he overlaid the cherubim with gold.
29) And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubim and palm trees and open flowers, within and without.

JUDGES CHAPTER 18
VERSE, 18, 19, 20, 21
18) And these went into Micah’s house, and fetched the carved image, the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image. Then said the priest to them, What do you?
19) And they said to him, Hold your peace, lay your hand on your mouth, and go with us, and be to us a father and a priest: is it better for you to be a priest to the house of one man, or that you be a priest to a tribe and a family in Israel?
20) And the priest’s heart was glad, and he took the ephod, and the teraphim, and the graven image, and went in the middle of the people.
21) So they turned and departed, and put the little ones and the cattle and the carriage before them.

14) You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set you so: you were on the holy mountain of God; you have walked up and down in the middle of the stones of fire.

VERSE, 10, 11, 12, 13
10) And he rode on a cherub, and did fly: yes, he did fly on the wings of the wind.
11) He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
12) At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
13) The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
