III. The Power of the Lamp Stand

2 Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto

ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth

in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise

in your hearts:

Pro 31:24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles

unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour are her clothing;

and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her

mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth

not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call

her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

2 Tim 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned

and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned

them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy

scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation

through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given

by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,

for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man

of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
