Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:

And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.

They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Jesus has made it possible that we can keep our heart from being troubled. Chapter 14 of John tells us how to keep our heart from being troubled.

  • ye believe in God,

Believing in God keeps our heart from being troubled

  • believe also in me

Believing in Jesus keeps our heart from being troubled

  • In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you

  • and receive you unto myself

Knowing that Jesus will receive us unto Himself keeps our heart from being troubled

  • that where I am, there ye may be also

Knowing that where Jesus is, we will be also keeps our heart from being troubled

  • And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Knowing where Jesus is, at the right hand of the Father in heaven (Lk 22:69), and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Eph 2:6) keeps our heart from being troubled.

Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

  • for he dwelleth with you,

  • and shall be in you.

  • I will not leave you comfortless:

  • I will come to you.

  • Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me:

  • because I live

  • ye shall live also.

  • At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

  • He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him,

  • he shall teach you all things,

  • and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

  • Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.

  • And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

  • Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

  • But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.

  • Arise, let us go hence.

Were I to lose my life or be imprisoned, let it be for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years
