1 Corinthians 12:3
3Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus
accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 16:22
22If anyone does not love The Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. O Lord, Come!"
21Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain,
nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father, 22You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship,
for salvation is of the Jews. 23But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24God is Spirit, and those who worship
Him must worship in spirit and truth."
25The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ).
"When He comes, He will tell us all things."
26Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."
18For thus says the Lord, who made heaven--this is the God who formed the earth and made it. He established it, and did not make it in vain, but formed it to be inhabited--"I Am, and there is no other. 19I have not spoken in secret, nor in a dark place of the earth. I did not say to the seed of Jacob, 'Seek Me in vain.' I Am, I am the Lord who speaks righteousness and declares the truth. 20Assemble yourselves and come. Take counsel together, you who are saved from among the nations. Those who set up the wood of their carved image have no knowledge, and pray to gods who do not save. 21If they will declare, let them draw near, so as to know together who caused these things to be heard from the beginning. At that time it was told you, 'I am God, and there is no other besides Me; there is no righteous God and Savior in addition to Me.22 Return to Me, and you shall be saved, you who are from the ends of the earth. For I am God, and there is no other. 23I swore by Myself: righteousness will truly proceed from my mouth; My words shall not be turned away, that to Me every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess to God, 24saying 'Righteousness and glory shall come to Him, and all who separate themselves from Him shall be put to shame.' 25All the seed of the children of Israel shall be made righteous by the the Lord, and glorified in God."
9Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
1 Corinthians 15:50-58
50Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.51Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."
55"O Death where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?"
56The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
8Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
And they sang a new song, saying:
"You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your
Out of every tribe and tongue and
people and nation,
10And have made us kings and priests
to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth."
11Then I looked, and heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures,
and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands
of thousands, 12saying with a loud voice:
"Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and
And strength and honor and glory and
13And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as
are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:
"Blessing and honor and glory and
Be to Him who sits on the throne,
And to the Lamb, forever and ever!"
14Then the four living creatures said, Amen!" And the twenty-four
elders fell down and worshipped Him who lives forever and ever."
