His Kingdom  Spirit of Life  God Almighty  Jesus Our Redeemer  Apostle Paul  Faith in What Has Come  Thoughtfulness  Principles 

WICKEDNESS IS IN THE WORLD
NOT
BUT
Adam was not deceived
   But the woman being deceived, fell into transgression
Not spare the ancient world
But saved Noah
Do you not fear Me?
But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart
Would not hear
But the word of the LORD was to them
Receive instruction ... not be cut off
But they rose early and corrupted all their deeds
Not obey nor incline their ear
But made their neck stiff
They did not hear
But they did evil before My eyes
Not walk in My statutes
But profaned My Sabbaths
Not that land be greatly polluted?
But you have played the harlot with many lovers;
Judah did not fear
But went and played the harlot also
Judah has not turned to Me with her whole heart
But in pretense, says the LORD
They did not obey or incline their ear
But followed the counsels and the dictates of their
evil hearts, and went backward and not forward
They did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful
But became futile in their thoughts, and
their foolish hearts were darkened
A man is not established by wickedness
But the root of the righteous cannot be moved
The wicked will not go unpunished
But the posterity of the righteous will be delivered
I will not pity nor spare nor have mercy
But will destroy them
The way of the Lord is not fair
But it is their way which is not fair!
The Lord will not allow the righteous soul to famish   
But He casts away the desire of the wicked
Not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever
But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off
The wicked borrows and does not repay
But the righteous shows mercy and gives
Not only do the same
But also approve of those who practice them

EVIL LURKS
NOT
BUT
Do not lead us into temptation
But deliver us from the evil one
Do not fear those who kill the body
But cannot kill the soul
You are not mindful of the things of God
But the things of men
Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness   
But rather expose them
Not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed
   But he who does the truth comes to the light
Do not be overcome by evil
But overcome evil with good
Do not imitate what is evil
But what is good
Do not speak peace
But they devise deceitful matters
Have not known Me. They are silly children, And
they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil   
But to do good they have no knowledge
Not be partakers with them
But now you are light in the Lord
Walk as children of light
Walk circumspectly, not as fools
But as wise, redeeming the time,
because the days are evil
Not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling
But on the contrary blessing
Not to resist an evil person
But whoever slaps you on your right
cheek, turn the other to him also

SIN GOD HATES
NOT
BUT
God does not hear sinners
But if anyone is a worshiper of God and
does His will, He hears him
The lust of the eyes, and the pride of life
Is not of the Father but of the world
Not descend from above
But is earthly, sensual, demonic
Whoever is born of God does not sin
But he who has been born of God keeps himself
Sin shall not have dominion over you
For you are not under law but under grace
He who covers his sins will not prosper
   But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy
Do not let your heart envy sinners
But be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day
Do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh
But through love serve one another
Not using liberty as a cloak for vice
But as bondservants of God
Not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers
But as bondservants of Christ,
doing the will of God from the heart
Not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able   
But with the temptation will also make the way of escape
Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking,
nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting
But rather giving of thanks
Not conforming yourselves to the former lusts,
as in your ignorance
But as He who called you is holy, you
also be holy in all your conduct
They will not endure sound doctrine
But according to their own desires
Not serve our Lord Jesus Christ
But their own belly
Not so much as raise his eyes to heaven
But beat his breast, saying,
"God, be merciful to me a sinner!"
Not carnal
But mighty in God

LAW HAS BEEN GIVEN
NOT
BUT
Law is not made for a righteous person
But for lawless and insubordinate,
for the ungodly and for sinners
Law is not of faith
   But the man who does them shall live by them
They did not seek it by faith
But as it were, by the works of the law
Walks not in the counsel of the ungodly
But his delight is in the law of the LORD
Not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God   
But the doers of the law will be justified
Not kept My ways
But have shown partiality in the law
Do not forget my law
But let your heart keep my commands
Man is not justified by the works of the law
But by faith in Jesus Christ
Not according to the law of a fleshly commandment
But according to the power of an endless life
Brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman
But of the free
A slave does not abide in the house forever
But a son abides forever
We do not wrestle against flesh and blood
But against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this age
For rulers are not a terror to good works
But to evil
Evil men do not understand justice
But those who seek the LORD understand all
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together,
as is the manner of some
But exhorting one another
Not the removal of the filth of the flesh
But the answer
of a good conscience toward God

CONDUCT IS A PURSUIT OF WILLPOWER
NOT
BUT
Let us not sleep, as others do
But let us watch and be sober
Do not avenge yourselves
But rather give place to wrath
Do not provoke your children to wrath
But bring them up in the training
and admonition of the Lord
God did not appoint us to wrath
   But to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ
Not judge one another anymore
But rather resolve this
To their own masters, to be well pleasing in all things,
not answering back, not pilfering
But showing all good fidelity
Be submissive to your masters with all fear,
not only to the good and gentle
But also to the harsh
Obeyed, not as in my presence only
But now much more in my absence
Not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money   
But gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous
Not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given
to wine, not violent, not greedy for money
But hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-
minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast
Serving as overseers, not by compulsion
But willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly
Women keep silent in the churches,
for they are not permitted to speak
But they are to be submissive
You are not restricted by us
But you are restricted by your own affections
Not willing that any should perish
But that all should come to repentance
For godly sorrow produces repentance
leading to salvation
But the sorrow of the world produces death
I rejoice, not that you were made sorry
But that your sorrow led to repentance
Do not be haughty
But fear
Not fear when heat comes
But its leaf will be green

WORDS ONCE DELIVERED
NOT
BUT
Receive my instruction, and not silver
Knowledge rather than choice gold
Man shall not live by bread alone
But by every word of God
Man shall not live by bread alone
But every word that proceeds from the mouth of God
I wrote to you, with many tears,
not that you should be grieved
But that you might know the love which I have
Not as the word of men
But as it is in truth, the word of God
Not come from error or uncleanness,
nor was it in deceit
But as we have been approved by God
to be entrusted with the gospel
Written not with ink but by the Spirit
of the living God, not on tablets of stone
But on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart
Not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills   
But the Spirit gives life
Born again, not of corruptible seed
But incorruptible, through the word of God
Not the word of those who are puffed up
But the power
Not consent to wholesome words
   But is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words
Not, as so many, peddling the word of God
But as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak
Gospel did not come to you in word only
But also in power, and in the Holy Spirit
and in much assurance
He who does not love Me does not keep My words;
and the word which you hear is not Mine
But the Father's who sent Me
Do not be afraid
But speak, and do not keep silent
Not written in this book
But these are written that you may believe that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God

HIS KINGDOM
NOT
BUT
For the kingdom of God is not in word
But in power
The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking
But righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit
Not seek what you should eat or what you should drink   
But seek the kingdom of God, and all
these things shall be added to you
The spiritual is not first
But the natural, and afterward the spiritual
Riches do not profit in the day of wrath
But righteousness delivers from death
We shall not all sleep
But we shall all be changed
It has not yet been revealed what we shall be
But we know that when He is revealed,
we shall be like Him
Neither marry nor are given in marriage
But are like angels of God in heaven
Not everyone ... shall enter the kingdom of heaven
But he who does the will of My Father in heaven
He who overcomes ... I will not blot out
his name from the Book of Life
But I will confess his name before
my Father and before His angels
Angels who did not keep their proper domain
But left their own abode,
He has reserved in everlasting chains
God did not spare the angels who sinned
But cast them down to hell and delivered
them into chains of darkness
Not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there)
   But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles
Do not worry
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness
Not even the angels of heaven
But My Father only
Not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven

SPIRIT OF LIFE
NOT
BUT
Not walk according to the flesh,
But according to the Spirit
Not in words which man's wisdom teaches
But which the Holy Spirit teaches
Not with persuasive words of human wisdom
But in demonstration of the Spirit and of power
Received, not the spirit of the world
But the Spirit who is from God, that we might know
Darkness shall not hide from You
But the night shines as the day
Not walk in darkness
But have the light of life
Do not believe every spirit
But test the spirits, whether they are of God;
Do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation
But be filled with the Spirit
Not do the things that you wish
   But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law
Not in the flesh
But in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you
Did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear   
But you received the Spirit of adoption
by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."
I shall not die
But live, And declare the works of the Lord
Not a Jew who is one outwardly
But he is a Jew who is one inwardly
Born, not of blood, ... nor of the will of man
But of God

GOD ALMIGHTY
NOT
BUT
Not the God of the dead
But of the living
Not the God of the dead
But the God of the living
Not the God of the dead
But of the living, for all live to Him
God is not the author of confusion
But of peace
God did not call us to uncleanness
But in holiness
Rejects this does not reject man
But God
Therefore do not be unwise
But understand what the will of the Lord is
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of
anything as being from ourselves
But our sufficiency is from God
Not by works of righteousness which we have done
But according to His mercy He saved us
Not forget the works of God
But keep His commandments
God has not given us a spirit of fear
But of power and of love and of a sound mind
He led them on safely, so that they did not fear
But the sea overwhelmed their enemies
They did not remember the multitude of Your mercies   
But rebelled by the sea-the Red Sea
For they did not gain possession of the land
by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them
But it was Your right hand
Not unto us
But to Your name give glory
Moses did not give you the bread from heaven
   But My Father gives you the true bread from heaven
God did not send His Son into
the world to condemn the world
But that the world through Him might be saved
Not spare His own Son
But delivered Him up for us all
In this is love, not that we loved God
But that He loved us and sent His Son
to be the propitiation for our sins
Propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only
But also for the whole world
Whoever believes in Him should not perish
But have everlasting life
He who does not believe the Son shall not see life
But the wrath of God abides on him
Not slack concerning His promise
But is longsuffering toward us

JESUS OUR REDEEMER
NOT
BUT
For I have come down from heaven,
not to do My own will
But the will of Him who sent Me
I have not come of Myself
   But He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know
My doctrine is not Mine
But His who sent Me
I have not spoken on My own authority
But the Father who sent Me gave Me a command,
what I should say and what I should speak
I do not speak on My own authority
But the Father who dwells in Me does the works
My judgment is true; for I am not alone
But I am with the Father who sent Me
I did not come to destroy
But to fulfill
The Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives
But to save them
I did not come to judge the world
But to save the world
The Son of Man did not come to be served
But to serve
The Son of Man did not come to be served
But to serve
I did not come to call the righteous
But sinners, to repentance
I have not come to call the righteous
But sinners, to repentance
Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth
But a sword
To give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all
But rather division
He does not give aid to angels
But He does give aid to the seed of Abraham
Not with the blood of goats and calves
But with His own blood He entered
the Most Holy Place once for all
Not weep for Me
But weep for yourselves and for your children
Hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me
has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment   
But has passed from death into life
Not only to believe in Him
But also to suffer for His sake
I do not pray for the world
But for those whom You have given Me
You are not of the world
But I chose you out of the world
Christ ... far above all ... not only in this age
But also in that which is to come
Not here
But is risen!
A glorious church, not having spot
or wrinkle or any such thing
But that she should be holy and without blemish

APOSTLE PAUL
NOT
BUT
For Christ did not send me to baptize
But to preach the gospel
For we do not preach ourselves
But Christ Jesus the Lord
Do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord   
But share with me in the sufferings for
the gospel according to the power of God
Will not boast beyond measure
But within the limits of the sphere
which God appointed us
Yet not I
But the grace of God which was with me
I do not seek yours
But you
For I know nothing against myself,
yet I am not justified by this
But He who judges me is the Lord
I do not count myself to have apprehended
But one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind and reaching forward
Not that I have already attained,
or am already perfected;
But I press on, that I may lay hold of that for
which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me
Yet not crushed; we are perplexed
But not in despair
Persecuted
But not forsaken
Struck down
But not destroyed
We do not commend ourselves again to you
   But give you the opportunity to boast on our behalf
Not to me only
But also to all who have loved His appearing

FAITH IN WHAT HAS COME
NOT
BUT
Faith should not be in the wisdom of men
But in the power of God
We do not look at the things which are seen
But at the things which are not seen
Promise that he would be the heir of the world was
not to Abraham or to his seed through the law
But through the righteousness of faith
He did not waver at the promise
of God through unbelief
But was strengthened in faith, giving
glory to God, and being fully convinced
They would not enter His rest
But to those who did not obey? So we see that
they could not enter in because of unbelief
Not doubt in his heart
But believes that those things he says will
be done, he will have whatever he says
Do not become sluggish
But imitate those who through faith
and patience inherit the promises
Not only in the sight of the Lord
But also in the sight of men
Not according to our works
But according to His own purpose and grace
Not with fleshly wisdom
But by the grace of God
Do not labor for the food which perishes
   But for the food which endures to everlasting life
Not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches
But in the living God
The proud, His soul is not upright in him
But the just shall live by his faith
Tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe
But to unbelievers;
Prophesying is not for unbelievers
But for those who believe
But we are not of those who draw back to perdition
But of those who believe to the saving of the soul
Do not lose those things we worked for
But that we may receive a full reward
Silver and gold I do not have
But what I do have I give you
Him who does not work
But believes on Him who justifies the ungodly,
his faith is accounted for righteousness
If anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed   
But let him glorify God in this matter
Not despise them because they are brethren
But rather serve them because those
who are benefited are believers
For in fact the body is not one member
But many
Not boasting of things beyond measure
But having hope, that as your faith is increased
Do not be unbelieving
But believing

THOUGHTFULNESS
NOT
BUT
For man is not from woman
But woman from man
Not to think of himself more highly
than he ought to think
But to think soberly, as God has dealt
to each one a measure of faith
A disciple is not above his teacher
But everyone who is perfectly trained
will be like his teacher
I do not say to you, up to seven times
But up to seventy times seven
Do not be children in understanding;
however, in malice be babes
But in understanding be mature
Not with old leaven, nor with the
leaven of malice and wickedness
But with the unleavened
bread of sincerity and truth
A scoffer seeks wisdom and does not find it   
But knowledge is easy to him who understands
Not walking in craftiness nor handling
the word of God deceitfully
But by manifestation of the truth
Does not rejoice in iniquity
But rejoices in the truth
A faithful witness does not lie
But a false witness will utter lies
Condemned who did not believe the truth
But had pleasure in unrighteousness
Be subject, not only because of wrath
But also for conscience' sake
He answered and said, I will not
But afterward he regretted it and went
He who gives to the poor will not lack
   But he who hides his eyes will have many curses
Do not boast against the branches
But if you do boast, remember that you do not
support the root, but the root supports you
Not judge according to appearance
But judge with righteous judgment

PRINCIPLES
NOT
BUT
All flesh is not the same flesh
But there is one kind of flesh of men, another
flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds
Let us not love in word or in tongue
But in deed and in truth
Not a forgetful hearer
But a doer of the work, this one
will be blessed in what he does
Not he who commends himself is approved
But whom the Lord commends
We should not trust in ourselves
But in God who raises the dead
Not what I will
But what You will
Do not set your mind on high things
But associate with the humble
Not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers
But in sincerity of heart, fearing God
Not let your adornment be merely outward
Rather let it be the hidden person of the heart
A servant of the Lord must not quarrel
But be gentle to all, able to teach, patient
Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man
But what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man
The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting   
But diligence is man's precious possession
Because he did not remember to show mercy
But persecuted the poor and needy man
Do not rebuke an older man
But exhort him as a father
Lord it ... not be so among you
But whoever desires to become great
among you, let him be your servant
Not only for his own interests
But also for the interests of others
Not to teach in this name?
   But Peter ... said: "We ought to obey God rather than men"
Not only that
But we also glory in tribulations
Not worry about how or what you should speak
But he who endures to the end will be saved
