Bible Verses for That Was Then, This Is Now


2 Corinthians 5 :17 New creature | scriptureand.blogspot.com

That Was Then, This Is Now

by Josh Wilson and Ben Glover

We used to hide from the light
We made friends with the night
We were headed the wrong way on a one-way track
Going nowhere fast
Jesus said in John 3:19-20 "This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. 
Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." 
We got used to the dark
We thought this is who we are
And we figured that we were just too far gone
But we were wrong
1 Corinthians 1:26-29 For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God.
‘Cause love came running like a river
And we got washed in the water
Then He said you're forgiven
Your sins are gone
Colossians 1:13 For He [Jesus] rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Titus 3:5 He [Jesus] saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
Psalm 103:18 As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. 
That was then, this is now
You're bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about
That was lost, this is found
And it's time to say goodbye to the old you now
Acts 20:28 Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
John 3:16-17 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him." 
Jesus said in Luke 19:10 "For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
So go ahead, put the past in the past
Box it up like an old photograph
You don't have to go back
‘Cause that was then and this is now
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
We've been remade by grace
We've all got new names
And nothing we do could ever change
What He did that day
Ephesians 2:4-6 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
The Lord says in Revelation 2:17 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.'
About Jesus in Hebrews 10:11-14 Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made A footstool for His feet. For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified
When love came running like a river
We got washed in the water
Then He said you're forgiven
And you belong
1 Corinthians 6:11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
Colossians 2:13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions
1 John 3:1 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
That was then, this is now
You're bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about
That was lost, this is found
And it's time to say goodbye to the old you now
1 Peter 1:18-19 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ
Romans 5:8-9 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.
Jesus said in the parable of the prodigal son, Luke 15:22-24 But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.’ And they began to celebrate.
James 1:21 Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. 
So go ahead, put the past in the past
Box it up like an old photograph
You don't have to go back
‘Cause that was then
The Lord says in Isaiah 43:18-19 "Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert."
If we turn and confess every unrighteousness
He is faithful and just to forgive
Oh, so turn and confess every wrong and regret
And see what it means to live
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He [Jesus] is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”; and You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah.
That was then, this is now
You're bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about
That was lost, this is found
And it's time to say goodbye to the old you now
Revelation 5:9-10  And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”
Romans 3:23-26 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Ephesians 4:23-24 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. 
So go ahead, put the past in the past
Box it up like an old photograph
You don't have to go back
‘Cause that was then and this is now
Luke 9:62 But Jesus said to him, “No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Bible Verses for Cornerstone

"My Anchor Holds Within The Veil" from The Solid Rock | scriptureand.blogspot.com


In 2011, Hillsong took the hymn The Solid Rock (My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less) and added a chorus and made an awesome praise song called Cornerstone.  I loved the hymn and I love this song just as much.  Check out the Bible verses that go along with the hymn and praise song.

Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
Isaiah 28:16 Corner Stone | scriptureand.blogspot.com

Cornerstone

Words of verses by Edward Mote (1797-1874)
Chorus words and music by Jonas Myrin, Reuben Morgan & Eric Liljero

Verse 1:
My hope is built on nothing less
1 Corinthian 3:11 For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
Romans 3:21-26 But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
Jeremiah 48:7 "For because of your trust in your own achievements and treasures, even you yourself will be captured; And Chemosh will go off into exile together with his priests and his princes."
But wholly trust in Jesus' name
Psalm 62:5-8 My soul, wait in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Chorus:
Christ alone; cornerstone
Peter said in Acts 4:10-12 "let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."
Weak made strong; in the Saviour's love
2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all
Matthew 8:24-27 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep. And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing!” He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm. The men were amazed, and said, “What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”
Verse 2:
When Darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
Psalm 13:1, 5-6 How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? . . . But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
Hebrews 6:19-20 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

Christ alone; cornerstone
Weak made strong; in the Saviour's love
Through the storm, He is Lord
Lord of all

**Verse 4:
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Isaiah 61:10 I will rejoice greatly in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
Philippians 3:9 and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith
2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him
Faultless stand before the throne.
Ephesians 1:3-7 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace
Colossians 1:21-22 And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach— 

Hebrews 6:19 Anchor of The Soul | scriptureand.blogspot.com


** Hillsong leaves out the third verse of The Solid Rock:
Verse 3:
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Matthew 26:27-28 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.
Support me in the whelming flood;
Psalm 69:2, 14-15 I have sunk in deep mire, and there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and a flood overflows me. . . . Deliver me from the mire and do not let me sink; May I be delivered from my foes and from the deep waters. May the flood of water not overflow me nor the deep swallow me up, nor the pit shut its mouth on me.
Psalm 124:2-5 Had it not been the Lord who was on our side when men rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us alive, when their anger was kindled against us; Then the waters would have engulfed us, the stream would have swept over our soul; Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul.”
When all around my soul gives way,
Psalm 40:2 He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He then is all my hope and stay.
1 Timothy 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus according to the commandment of God our Savior, and of Christ Jesus, who is our hope,
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.

Sunday Note Sheet for Kids

Sunday Meeting Note Sheet for Kids

My Sunday Meeting Notes for kids | scriptureand.blogspot.com


My 9-year-old was having trouble listening on Sunday.  There was plenty for him to hear, but he didn't know how to take it in.  And of course sitting still and only listening is difficult for kids.

So I created this note sheet for him to write things down.  For a while it was a little more like busy work, just writing down the verse references and important words.  However, after a while, he had learned to focus on the words that were being said.  He was following along in his Bible without being told.  He was asking about words he didn't understand. He especially loved drawing cartoons on the back too.

The most important part is interacting with your child.  Make sure that you respond to your child's questions.  Help them define words that they don't know.  This can happen during the service, on the way home, during Sunday dinner, or whenever you would like.  Without interacting with your child about the content from the meetings, it will all seem pointless.  Try to have good conversations about what you learned.  You will be surprised by what they may have misunderstood or how deep their questions go.  Get them thinking about applying what they heard as well.

Feel free to print these out for your children or others in your church.  Also, you may share it on your blog or on social media, as long as you include a link to this page.

Be Thou My Vision



In studying Be Thou My Vision I came across an article that shared a verse of the hymn that is often excluded.  The article pointed out that the second, third, and fourth verses of the hymn match with the wisdom, might, and riches mentioned in Jeremiah 9:23-24.  I thought that this was a plausible theory about the source of Be Thou My Vision.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 Thus says the Lord, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the Lord.

Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.



Be Thou My Vision
Old Irish hymn translated by Eleanor Hull in 1912
Verse 1:
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Psalm 26:3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth.
Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Philippians 3:8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Psalm 139:17-18  How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Psalm 3:5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
John 12:46 I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness. 

Verse 2:
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
1 Corinthians 1:30-31 But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, “Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord.”
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
John 15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
John 8:42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me.
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
2 Corinthians 6:16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; And I will be their God, and they shall be MY people.
Jesus said about the disciples in John 17:21-23 "that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me." 

Verse 3:
Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
2 Samuel 22:3 My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; My savior, You save me from violence.
Ephesians 6:13-17 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Matthew 10:29-31 Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tow’r:
Psalm 61:4 Let me dwell in Your tent forever; Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.
Psalm 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.
Raise Thou me heav’nward, O Pow’r of my pow’r.
James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.

Verse 4:
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Proverbs 11:28 He who trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like the green leaf.
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Psalm 16:5  The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You support my lot.
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
Psalm 73:25-26 Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
Psalm 47:2 For the Lord Most High is to be feared, a great King over all the earth.

Verse 5:
High King of Heaven, my victory won,
1 Corinthians 15:56-57 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
2 Peter 3:13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.
The Lord said in Malachi 4:2 “But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall."
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego said in Daniel 3:18 "But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
Psalm 16:8 I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Psalm 47:7 For God is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with a skillful psalm.

Psalm 131:2 Surely I have composed and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child rests against his mother, my soul is like a weaned child within me.
Remember
Redemption's Hill
1 Corinthians 11:25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
Where your blood was spilled
For my ransom
Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss
Philippians 3:7-8 But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,

Lead me to the cross
Where your love poured out
Mark 14:24 And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
1 Peter 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,
Rid me of myself
I belong to you
Ephesians 4:22-24 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
 Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Oh lead me, lead me to the cross
Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

You were as I
Tempted and tried

Human
The Word became flesh

Lead me to the Cross
Where your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
And rid me of myself
I belong to you
Oh lead me, lead me to the cross

Studying the Pharisees in the Bible

Matthew 23:1-3 Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them.

I was reading this verse in Matthew 23 when I noticed that it said to not be like the Pharisees. It made me think that maybe I should take a look at the Pharisees to see what I shouldn't do and what it is that I should do instead.

So I made this printable chart that has many passages about the Pharisees so that you can take a look at what the Pharisees did and what their attitude was.  Then, you can say what God would have you do instead.  You can even try to find some Bible verses for what you should do instead.

Feel free to print these to use for personal use, Sunday School classes, or group Bible studies.  You may also share them online, but please include a link to this webpage.
