35 And that same day, when the evening had come, He said unto them,
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took Him even as He was in the boat; and there were also with Him other little boats. 37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was now full. 38 But He was in the hind part of the boat, asleep on a pillow; and they awoke Him and said unto Him, "Master, carest thou not that we perish?" 39 And He arose, and rebuked the wind and said unto the sea,
And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And He said unto them,
41 And they feared exceedingly and said one to another, "What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"
1 Corinthians 14:26-33
26 How is it then, brethren? When ye come together every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. 27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two or at the most by three, and then in turn, and let one interpret. 28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church, and let him speak to himself and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. 30 If anything be revealed to another who sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be comforted. 32 The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets, 33 for God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as it is in all churches of the saints.
1 Samuel 3:1-20
1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.
2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was lying down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim so that he could not see, 3 and ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD where the ark of God was, and Samuel was lying down to sleep, 4 that the LORD called Samuel; and he answered, "Here am I." 5 And he ran unto Eli and said, "Here am I, for thou called me." And he said, "I called not; lie down again." And he went and lay down. 6 And the LORD called yet again, "Samuel." And Samuel arose and went to Eli and said, "Here am I, for thou didst call me." And he answered, "I called not, my son; lie down again." 7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him. 8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli and said, "Here am I, for thou didst call me." And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child. 9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, "Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He call thee, that thou shalt say, 'Speak, LORD, for Thy servant heareth.'" So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
10 And the LORD came and stood, and called as at other times, "Samuel, Samuel." Then Samuel answered, "Speak, for Thy servant heareth." 11 And the LORD said to Samuel, "Behold, I will do a thing in Israel at which both the ears of every one who heareth it shall tingle. 12 In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house. When I begin, I will also make an end; 13 for I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth, because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not. 14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering, for ever."
15 And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel feared to show Eli the vision. 16 Then Eli called Samuel and said, "Samuel, my son." And he answered, "Here am I." 17 And he said, "What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee? I pray thee, hide it not from me. God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any word from me of all the things that He said unto thee." 18 And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, "It is the LORD. Let Him do what seemeth to Him good."
19 And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground. 20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.
