Warnings from Israel's History
1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
2 And were all baptized unto Moses, in the cloud, and in the sea,
3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink (for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them; and the Rock was Christ.)
5 But with many of them God was not pleased; for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
6 Now these things are our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted.
7 Neither be ye idolaters as were some of them, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted him, and were destroyed of serpents.
10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
11 Now all these things came unto them for examples, and were written to admonish us, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
12 Wherefore, let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall.
13 There hath no temptation taken you, but such as appertaineth to man; and God is faithful, which will not suffer you to be tempted above that you be able, but will even give the issue with the temptation, that ye may be able to bear it.
14 Wherefore my beloved, flee from idolatry.
15 I speak as unto them which have understanding; judge ye what I say.
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
17 For we that are many, are one bread and one body, because we all are partakers of one bread.
18 Behold Israel, which is after the flesh; are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
19 What say I then? That the idol is anything? Or that which is sacrificed to idols, is anything?
20 Nay, but that these things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not unto God; and I would not that ye should have fellowship with the devils.
21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of the devils. Ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of the devils.
22 Do we provoke the Lord to anger? Are we stronger than he?
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
