Friday, July 21 / August 3, 2012: 1Cor 14:26-40, Matt 21:12-14,17-20
- passage: 1Cor 14:26-14:40
How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath
a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an
interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speak
in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and
that by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter,
let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and
to God. Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold
his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn,
and all may be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject
to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,
as in all churches of the saints. Let your women keep silence in the
churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are
commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they
will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a
shame for women to speak in the church. What? came the word of God out
from you? or came it unto you only? If any man think himself to be a
prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write
unto you are the commandments of the Lord. But if any man be ignorant,
let him be ignorant. Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid
not to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.
passage: Matt 21:12-21:14
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold
and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers,
and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written,
My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a
den of thieves. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple;
and he healed them.
passage: Matt 21:17-21:20
And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he
lodged there. Now in the morning as he returned into the city,
he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it,
and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no
fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree
withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying,
How soon is the fig tree withered away!
