|1 Corinthians 10:4|
4 And all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them; and that Rock was Christ.
48 He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep and laid the foundation securely built on a rock; and when the flood arose, the torrent beat violently upon that house, but could not shake it because it was founded on a rock. [The man who comes to Him, listens to His spoken words and then obeys what he hears, builds the temple of God, (Christ), in His heart; and when Christ is fully formed through persistence to the end, the day of the Lord comes while he is still alive on the earth, (which is a joyous occasion for the obedient), and his works of obedience survive the fire that all men must go through, which works are then forever to his credit, reputation, and reward.]
|1 Corinthians 3:11-12|
11 For no other foundation can any man lay than what has been already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now if any man builds upon this foundation [of the gospel of Christ] with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw;
|2 Timothy 2:19 |
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his." And, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ [calls himself a Christian] depart from iniquity [lawlessness, sin]." [Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. 1 Cor 15:34. From the Word of the Lord within: "You cannot pass the moral commandments and be a Christian."]
