Seek wisdom through Christ Jesus
Proverbs 3:13 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding,
9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
19:20 Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
28:26 Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.
Proverbs 9:7--9 Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse, and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.
8 Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you.
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

Galatians 5:14 the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
1 John 4:15-21 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
17 By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
19 We love because he first loved us.
20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.
21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
Luke 16:19 “There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day.
20 And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores,......
22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried. .....
Luke 16:23-28 ((while being tormented in the flames of Hades, the rich man looks up and sees Lazarus beside Abraham, asks Abraham to send Lazarus to him to give him some water. Abraham tells rich man he received good things and Lazarus bad things while alive, and now there is a "great chasm" between them and no one can cross the chasm from either side. Rich man begs Abraham to send Lazarus to warn his five brothers.))
Luke 16:29-31 But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’
30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’
31 He said to him,If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”

Three in One
32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
2 Peter 1:20, 21 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation.
21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

The Coming of the Holy Spirit
Acts 2:1-4 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place.
2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.
3 And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
