    5. 5.

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.“ (Acts 3:6) </li></ul><ul><li>And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

For it is his mouth that has given the order, and his Spirit will gather them together. (Isaiah 34:16) </li></ul>

(Mathew 5:18) </li></ul>
    9. 9. History <ul><li>Adam and Eve were made perfect and had no need of the bible as we know it. </li></ul><ul><li>Just like angels, they beheld the fullness of God, and the Word was written in them. </li></ul><ul><li>When man sinned, he was cut off from God. </li></ul><ul><li>You are of purer eyes than to behold evil, and can not look on iniquity (habakkuk 1:13) </li></ul>
    10. 10. History <ul><li>Instead of God having control, we had control of our hearts instead. And guess what our hearts by nature longs for? </li></ul><ul><li>The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    11. 11. History <ul><li>God began to inspire his prophets through the Holy Spirit so we will come to realize the fullness of Him. </li></ul><ul><li>All scripture is given by inspiration of God , and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Tim 3:16) </li></ul><ul><li>For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:21) </li></ul>
    12. 12.
