SECTION I.

Rom. vi. 23. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. John xvii. 2, 3. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast scnt. Tit. ii. 4–7. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost, which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; that being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Matt. xxv. 31-34. 41. 46. When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory; and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And he sliall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right band, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. Then shall he say also unto them on his left hand, Depait from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. 1 Pet. i. 3, 4. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not array, reserved in heaven for you. Rev. xxi. 4, 5, 6. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain : for the former things are passed away, And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. Psal. xxxvi. 9. For with thee is the fountuin of life; and in thy light shall we see light. Rom. ii. 7. To them who by patient continuance in well doing, seek for glory, and honour, and immortality, eternal life. 2 Tim. i. 10. But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Luke iii. 17. Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather the wheat into his garner: but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable. 2 Cor. v. 4. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burthened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Rev. ii. 7. 11. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches: He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. Matt. x. 38. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to kill both body and soul in hell. Rom. vi. 21. What 'fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed ? for the end of those things is death, (2 Tim. i. 10. See above.) Heb. ii. 14, 15. Forasmuch then as children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also

himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them, who through fear of death, were all their life-time subject to bondage. Rom. v. 12. 20, 21. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin ; and so death passed upon all men, for that all had sinned. Moreover the law entered that the offence might abound: but where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord. James i. 15. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, bring'eth forth death. 1 Thess. ii. 12. That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. I Cor. xv. 42–44. 49, 50, 53, 54. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption; it is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power: it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. For this corruptible must put on incorruption; and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on im mortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is suallowed up of victory. 2 Cor. iv, 17. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, work. eth for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. Psal. lxxvi. 24. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Heb. ii. 10. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through suffering. 1 Pet. v. 10. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eterial glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered

awhile, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 2 Pet. i. 3. According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. Rom. viii. 28–30. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he did also predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the first-bory among many brethren. Moreover, whom he did predestinate, them he also called ; and whom he called, them be also justified; and whom he justified, then he also glorified. 2 Tim. ii. 10. Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sake, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. Rev. ii. 10. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer ; behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried ; and ye sball bave tribulation ten days; be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a croun of life. James i. 12. Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God, for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure ; seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you ; and to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed

from heaven with his mighty angels. Rom. ir. 3, 4, 5. For wbat saith the Scriptures ? Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward reckoned rot of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Col. ii. 18. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind. Col. iii. 24. Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance : for ye serve the Lord Christ. Heb. x. 35. Cast not away therefore your confidence which hath great recompence of reward. Heb. xi. 26. Esteeming the reproach of Christ, greater riches than all the treasures of Egypt; for he had respect unto the recompence of reward. Matt. xvi. 27. For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then shall he reward every man according tu his works.

SECTION III.

1 Cor. ii. 9. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. Rom. vi. 17. 21, 22. But God be thanked that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants of God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. Rom. ii. 7. To them who by patient continuance in well doing, sech for: glory and honour and immortality, eternal life. Gal. vi. 8. For he that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit, shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Matt. xix. 16, 17. And behold, one
