The KINGDOM and CHURCH OF CHRIST.
* To this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the : Dead and Living; who is gone into Heaven,
and is on the right-hand of God; Angels, and Authorities, and Powers being made subject un: to him.
b He spoiled Principalities, and Powers, and made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it: and through Death, he hath destroyed him who had the Power of Death, that is the Deyil. The Prince of this World is now judged: and the God of Peace hath bruised Satan under our Feet.
c The Kingdoms of this World are become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ. All Kings shall fall down before him, all Nations shall serve him; and unto himn shall the gathering of the People be.
d He is the Head of all Principality and Power. At the Name of Jefus every Knee Thall bow, of things in Heaven, and things in Earth, and things under the Earth. And every Tongue Thall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father.

. a Jesus kaving preached the Gospel of the Kingdom; and all Power being given unto him, in Heaven and in Earth; he said unto his Disciples, Go ye into all the World, and preach the Gospel to every Creature; baptizing all Nations, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; and teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have cominanded you; and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the World.
6 Now, when the Apostles, and other Disciples, that were scatter'd abroad, went every where preaching the things concerning the Kingdom of God, and the Name of Jesus Christ, inany of them which heard the Word, believed, and were baptized, both Men and Women, and they gave themselves to the Lord; and continued stedfastly in the Apostles Doctrine and Fellowship, and in breaking of Bread, and in Prayers. And the . Multitude of them that believed, was called the Church of God, and of Christ.
c Christ is the Head of the Church, which is his Body, the Fulness of him that filleth all in all.
