1 Corinthians 16:15,16 – I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have ADDICTED themselves to the ministry of the saints,  That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.
ADDICTED – tasso – A primary verb – “to arrange in an orderly manner to prove or disprove a position” – Strong’s (5021)
II Timothy 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
ISAIAH 11:1 – And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
He came as a direct descendant of David, the son of the man Jesse, as a human man child made of a woman by God in the Virgin Mary’s womb – a sinless man who was both the Son of man and the Son of God. When Isaiah wrote in 700 BC most did not believe his report, as is the case today. But he grew up before his heavenly Father as a perfect tender plant of flesh and blood, and in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwelt bodily. He revealed himself to those who would believed he had been sent by his Father. He had no attributes of great human beauty manifested in his flesh – his beauty was the inner beauty of his Spirit. It was the beauty of God in him reconciling the world to himself.
Isaiah 53:1,2 – Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
ISAIAH 11:2 – And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;
Isaiah 42:1 – Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
Isaiah 61:1,2 – The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the MEEK; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;  To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
The prophecy of Isaiah 61:1,2 was fulfilled by Jesus in the synagogue at Nazareth more than 700 years after it was written. He proclaimed himself as the one who was sent to tell them it was the acceptable year of the Lord to bring in the kingdom by Messiah, but that rejection of it would bring the day of vengeance of their God.
Luke 4:16-20 – And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.  And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the POOR; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.  And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
He did not base his judgments or rebukes on the human senses, but on the Word and Indwelling Spirit of his heavenly Father’s Office.
ISAIAH 11:3 – And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
John 12:44-50 – Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.  And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.  For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.  And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
His judgments were merciful and full of promise to those who were poor in spirit and meek toward God.
Matthew 5:3 – Blessed are THE POOR in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:5 – Blessed are THE MEEK: for they shall inherit the earth.
But the time is coming when he will smite the earth and slay the wicked.
ISAIAH 11:4,5 – But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.  And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
His coming judgment is pictured by his return on the white horse of Revelation 19:11 judging those who did not repent of their sins and receive his righteousness by his gracious offer of salvation.
Revelation 19:11 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
II Thessalonians 1:7-10 – And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,  In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:  Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;  When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Philippians 3:9 – And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Galatians 3:26 – For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Romans 3:26 – To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Romans 3:28 – Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Luke 21:25-28 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
