"Dear friends, this is now my second letter
to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you
to wholesome thinking. I want you to recall the words spoken in the
past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and
Savior through your apostles" (2 Peter 3:1,2).
"Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable
your servants to speak your word with great boldness" (Acts 4:29).
"And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered
together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak the Word of God with boldness"
"But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put
them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on
sand" (Matthew 7:26). "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be
steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord,
knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord" (1 Corinthians
