These things I have spoken unto
you, that in me ye might have
peace. In the world ye shall have
tribulation: but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.
A Cause for Exultation
let him that glorieth glory in this,
that he understandeth and knoweth me,
that I am the LORD which exercise
judgment, and righteousness, in the earth:
for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
Obtained by Acquaintanceship with God
shall we know, if we follow on to
the LORD: his going forth is prepared
as the morning; and he
shall come unto us
the rain, as the latter and former rain
Obedience, the of Receiving
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine
is not mine, but his that sent me.
If any man will do his will, he shall know
of the doctrine, whether it be of God,
or whether I speak of myself.
Liberates the Soul from all Error
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know
the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
JOHN 8:31,32Leads to Eternal Life
And this is life eternal, that they might knowthee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs
And works His sovereign will.
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.
Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.

(well of the oath)
Was the far-famed center of patrirchal life.
It's name originated with the oath between
Abraham and Abimelech, King of Gerar.
There are wells in this area, and two of
them are very ancient. They are thought to
have been connected with the patriarchs-
possibly the very wells which they and their
servants dug. The wells are circular and the
larger one is twelve and a half feet in diameter,
and about 66 feet deep. On one of the masonry
stones lining the shaft, Condor, in 1874, found a
date indicating the repairs had been carried out
as late as the 12th century A.D. The old stone
curb, deeply grooved by the ropes of many
centuries, has now been replaced by a newer
well mouth and a somewhat more recent water-
lift. Yet many herds of camel, cattle, and sheep
still drink there daily from hewn stone and cement
