12 Teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and how to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; [Grace is in the heart of every man, waiting for a man to turn inward to be taught and changed to become righteous, pure, and holy. A "believer" who dies still sinning is defiled and banned from heaven; grace is not an excuse to bypass judgment or Hell for him; every man is judged by his words and works.]
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches will know that I am he who searches the minds and the hearts; and I will give to each of you according to your works.6
|Jeremiah 17:10 |
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the mind,2 to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings [works].
