Luke 7:

Def: Nain: afflicted, beautiful

The centurion had the genuine fear of God that births great humility out of recognizing the goodness and mercy of God through waiting on God that births great faith and intimacy with God. This kind of humility and reverence is the womb in which grows very great genuine faith which is moral persuasion that is lived out in and into who God is. 1-10

When God allows godly people to enter a time of great bareness where it seems they have lost everything that is dear and all security in this world it is then that if they stand still in faith out of that affliction God will bring great resurrection and restoration. 11-18

Wisdom which is the discretion to apply knowledge aright comes out of the genuine fear of God which is the choice to enter into the right recognition and reciprocation of the constitution of the ultimate quality of who is God. Those that are self-righteous totally lack wisdom because their pride has not been broken because of not entering into this choice in recognition and reciprocation of the ultimate perfection of love in its integrity in required judgment and transcendence therefrom in mercy and grace to one personally. This breaks self righteousness and pride. This brings faith that can response aright in choices to use knowledge because of a solid unmovable foundation of consequence that can only be in recognizing aright the constitution of Who God is as that foundation. 19-35

Wisdom looks at the heart motive and intent and dose not judge according to outward appearance. 36-50

Joel 2:

God will send an army to devour and destroy all the well being and wealth of those that claim to be the people of God when they refuse to repent with fasting and mourning. This is prevented when God’s people heed the cry to repentance with fasting.

Joel 2:12-17 (KJV)

(2:12) Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye [even] to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: (2:13) And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he [is] gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. (2:14) Who knoweth [if] he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; [even] a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? (2:15) Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: (2:16) Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. (2:17) Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where [is] their God?

2nd Chronicles 17:
Mark 15:

When we enter a time of prosperity as Jehoshaphat let us remember that God humbled Himself beyond our comprehension by being crucified for our sins so that we might have everlasting prosperity. Focusing on this keeps us from becoming proud when God prospers us for His glory in this world.

John 6:

It is the entering the genuine fear of God that leads us into the right knowing of God as our Father and in that knowledge is great respect for the holiness of God out which springs forth the knowledge of God’s goodness which comes out of knowing the holiness of God that will not tolerate the slightest corruption against meaningful everlasting and enlarging fulfillment of life. From this springs the awareness of the greatness of God’s mercy to us which could only be in God becoming a perfect atoning sacrifice. In that heart knowledge is the revelation of God as the Son of God and the reciprocation in fellowship of partaking of His flesh and His blood as the only and ultimate atoning sacrifice.

John 6:57-58 (KJV)

(6:57) As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. (6:58) This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

John 6:43-47 (KJV)

(6:43) Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. (6:44) No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. (6:45) It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. (6:46) Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. (6:47) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 6:47 (KJV)

(6:47) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

NT Vines


“to believe,” also “to be persuaded of,” and hence, “to place confidence in, to trust,” signifies, in this sense of the word, reliance upon, not mere credence. It is most frequent in the writings of the Apostle John, especially the Gospel. He does not use the noun (see below). For the Lord’s first use of the verb, see Joh 1:50. Of the writers of the Gospels, Matthew uses the verb ten times, Mark ten, Luke nine, John ninety-nine. In Act 5:14 the present participle of the verb is translated “believers.” See COMMIT, INTRUST, TRUST.


“to persuade,” in the Middle and Passive Voices signifies “to suffer oneself to be persuaded,” e.g., Luk 16:31; Heb 13:18; it is sometimes translated “believe” in the RV, but not in Act 17:4, RV, “were persuaded,” and Act 27:11, “gave (more) heed;” in Act 28:24, “believed.” See AGREE, ASSURE, OBEY, PERSUADE, TRUST, YIELD.


“faith,” is translated “belief” in Rom 10:17; 2Th 2:13. Its chief significance is a conviction respecting God and His Word and the believer’s relationship to Him. See ASSURANCE, FAITH, FIDELITY.

Note: In 1Co 9:5 the word translated “believer” (RV), is adelphe, “a sister,” so 1Co 7:15; Rom 16:1; Jam 2:15, used, in the spiritual sense, of one connected by the tie of the Christian faith.


(a) in the Active sense means “believing, trusting;” (b) in the Passive sense, “trusty, faithful, trustworthy.” It is translated “believer” in 2Co 6:15; “them that believe” in 1Ti 4:12, RV (AV, “believers”); in 1Ti 5:16, “if any woman that believeth,” lit., “if any believing woman.” So in 1Ti 6:2, “believing masters.” In 1Pe 1:21 the RV, following the most authentic mss., gives the noun form, “are believers in God” (AV, “do believe in God”). In Joh 20:27 it is translated “believing.” It is best understood with significance (a), above, e.g., in Gal 3:9; Act 16:1; 2Co 6:15; Tit 1:6; it has significance (b), e.g., in 1Th 5:24; 2Th 3:3 (see Notes on Thess. p. 211, and Gal. p. 126, by Hogg and Vine). See FAITHFUL, SURE.

Notes: (1) The corresponding negative verb is apisteo, 2Ti 2:13, AV, “believe not” RV, “are faithless,” in contrast to the statement “He abideth faithful.”
