3:16’s part 2

Again, welcome dear readers as I start on the 3:16 verses in the New Testament of the Bible:

DoveMatthew 3:16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him and he (John) saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.

Mark 3:16 Jesus gives Simon the name Peter (Rock).

Luke 3:16 John answered, saying to all,  “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.  He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Dark Baptism

Our Flagship verse, John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Acts 3:16 (paralytic healed) And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know.  Yes, the faith which comes through Him (Jesus) has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. walking and leaping

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness…

  Hope you like the photos I included; I wanted to break up the verses a bit!  We’re half way through the New Testament 3:16’s so I’ll save the last 6 for next week.

 Here’s this week’s lesson in my Psalm 91 study, week 6:

Psalm 91:5b You will not be afraid of…the arrow that flies by day…

This is the second category of evil:  it covers the spiritual battle ground.  These are enemy assignments sent to wound us with attacks on our mind, will, emotions, physical body or Spirit.  The enemy looks for places we are weak to attack – like rebellion, fear, offense, anger, unforgiveness.  God really means it when He says to forgive others as He forgives us and ‘Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one’.  We need to realize we have a choice; we don’t have to give in to the attacks that come our way if we quickly remind the devil our old nature is gone, we’re new creatures with Christ in us.  Peggy Joyce Ruth says: “The Fear of bad things happening to us has to be dealt with because fear opens DOORS!” -to the enemy.

I pray you stand firm in God’s promises and make good use of God’s Spiritual Armor outlined in Ephesians 6.  Amen

  1. Yes it is True Grannie Heidi that all of us whom God knows as His own will go through testing from Satan,he won the right to do so at the fall, we see this Truth with Jesus, Abraham, Job. Paul and Peter etc

    Most understand Peter’s name to mean stone, Names that have definitions in Scripture refer to their Character or as we see with Emanuel which means God with us, it refers to Jesus’ Divinity and so does Rock as confirmed by the Scriptures below.

    Jesus was saying that His Church would be built on what Peter said which was… Jesus is the Rock (see Scripture below) not on Peter himself which some have said in error. Jesus is The Head of God’s Church not a Man and we are the Body of Christ and so was Peter, we are all under Jesus’ Authority and He leads us into all Truth with us having asked for God’s Wisdom and the Holy Spirits empowering.

    Deuteronomy 32:3-5 Because I will publish the Name of the LORD, ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, His work is Perfect: for all His ways are Judgment: a God of Truth and without iniquity, Just and Right is He.

    Romans 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and Rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.

    1 Corinthians 10:3-5 And did all eat the same Spiritual meat; And did all drink the same Spiritual drink: for they drank of that Spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ.

    Although Peter was not the Rock that is mentioned in (Mathew16:18) Peter had knowledge that was given to him by God through the empowering of The Holy Spirit and like all of us when we Pray to Jesus who is our Advocate and only Intercessor we have His Power on earth too, yes the Keys of the Kingdom as did Peter who after Pentecost like the other Disciples except Judas also had the Indwelling of The Holy Spirit, Jesus who is our only Teacher tells us to Ask, Seek and Knock and when we Ask we will receive.(Luke11:13KJV) The Holy Spirit is God’s Gift to all who believe, He is One with God and Jesus in Spirit (1John5:7KJV) whom He brings Glory to on Earth (John 16:13 -15)

    1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any Man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things, and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as hath ye have been Taught, ye shall abide in Him.
