Had a lumpy curly top and all that crap, now

IF YOU then be risen with Christ, SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ABOVE, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. CONTINUE in prayer, and watch in the same with THANKSGIVING ; Set your affection on things above, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH! (BELIEVERS) For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ IN GOD. God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ. Walk in wisdom toward them (non-believe r s ) that are without, redeeming the time.

Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man. YOU ARE COMPLETE in Jesus, which is the head of all principality and power: which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that CREATED HIM: Christ is all, and in all. BELIEVERS ARE Buried with him in baptism, wherein also you are risen with him THROUGH THE FAITH of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsufferin g ; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. Let the peace of God rule in your hearts, and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom.

Teaching and admonishing one another in PSALM and HYMNS and SPIRITUAL SONGS, singing with grace in your hearts TO THE LORD. And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, GIVING THANKS TO GOD AND THE FATHER by him. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; (non-believe r s ) which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Whom WE preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, (BELIEVERS) that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works.

YET NOW hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to PRESENT YOU HOLY AND UNBLAMEABLE AND UNREPROVEABL E in his sight: IF YOU CONTINUE in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard. Comfort your hearts being knit together IN LOVE, and of the full assurance of understandin g , to the acknowledgem e n t of THE MYSTERY OF GOD, and of THE FATHER, and of Christ.

In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. This I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk you in him: BEWARE lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

BELIEVERS Lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. Like-> Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscenc e , and covetousness , which is idolatry, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communicatio n out of your mouth. Lie not one to another. Ect.. For which things' sake the wrath of God COMES ON THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE :   " T R U E " (for non-believer s )

"BUT" BELIEVERS ARE NOT JUDGE IF WE choice to do them! So Let no man therefore judge you "BELIEVERS" in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday. Which are a shadow of things to come; but THE BODY IS OF CHRIST. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility "THEY" puffed up by their fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
