“Whose your ‘Daddy’ – 101?”…Blog.

Often times I make suggestions to Christians wo are Truly ‘Born Again’…. To “Read & Memorize”…. TWO: IMPORTANT Bible Chapters…! First…. “Romans Chapter EIGHT”…! When was the last time, You actually “READ IT”….? This Doctrine about the Holy Spirit…. Is a KEY to your “Spiritual Growth!” Unless You… “Know & Understand”… your Position in Christ: You will be pulled away…. by “False Teaching!” When ONE begins to Understand the Doctrine of the Holy Spirit…. They can once again… “THINK & BELIEVE”…. “It is Written”…!  The Next Chapter is…. “John 17:All”… the Prayer of Christ Jesus for ALL…. Who are Truly Born Again…! Those Two Chapters… are a firm foundation… for the True Believer…!

“It is Written – 101” …Blog.
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.

*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].

“Not by Bread ‘Alone’ – 101” …Blog.

 *** (Luke 4:4) Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'One must Not live on bread alone; but on every word of God." [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]

*** (Proverbs 30:6) Do NOT add to His Words, lest He reprove you and you be found a LIAR.

*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept; precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go; and fall backward [backslide]; and be broken; and snared; and taken.

*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and does Not receive My Words; has One who judges him; the Word that I [Jesus] have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.

“Sola Scriptura – ONLY the Scripture – 101” …Blog.


  *** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness]; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [in Christ alone]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did Not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].

“Understanding… Being ‘BORN AGAIN’ – 101” …Blog. [1/2]



“Understanding… Being ‘BORN AGAIN’ – 101” …Blog. [1/?]

*** (James 2:19) You believe that there is one God, you do well; even the demons believe and tremble.

*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I say unto you: Except a man be born again; he “CANNOT” enter into the kingdom of God.

*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are NOR of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘Does NOT’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.

Have You been “Born Again” by the Holy Spirit of God….? “Many” call themselves Christians [?], who have NEVER been Born Again: Born from Above…. by the Holy Spirit of God! All the answers to these Questions may be FOUN…. In the Holy Word of God! It will be my ONLY Reference…. And NOT some Church or Denominations Teachings! Because when we ALL: Stand before the Judgment seat of Christ…. HE will ONLY use His Holy Word…. “To Judge US ALL”…. For… “Rewards & Loss of Rewards”…!Everyone will be… “Without Excuse!” There will be NO Grading on a curve or any such handicap. Christ Jesus, will judge us ALL: “WITH COMPLETE RIGHTEOUSNESS & TRUTH”…!

*** (John 12:48) He who ‘Rejects’ Me [Jesus]; and does ‘Not’ receive My Words; has One who judges him; the WORD -> that I have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.

*** (1Corinthains 3:13-14-15) each one's work shall be revealed. For the Day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is.
(1Co 3:14) If anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.
(1Co 3:15) If anyone's work shall be burned up, he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved, yet so as by fire.

*** (2Jn 1:8-to-11) Look to yourselves, so that we may NOT lose those things which we worked out, but that we may receive a FULL REWARD.
(2Jn 1:9) Everyone transgressing and not abiding in the doctrine of Christ does NOT have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has BOTH: the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, DO NOT receive him into your house, nor speak a greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who speaks a greeting to him is partaker of his evil deeds.

Just perhaps before Examining this topic…. We should DISCUSS… What Being “BORN AGAIN”… is “NOT”…? Also, this will remove ANY: “Denominational or CHURCH Teachings”… which are “NOT Biblical”…! “MANY” will often Quote what they have heard from the Pulpit! “FEW” will quote the Holy Word of God… “The Bible”…! The bottom line in any such discussion is… “Thus Says the LORD”…! Yes, we all have our Opinions: but like armpits, we have at least Two: and they are often Stinky! God has given us His Holy Word, the Bible… and it is the Final & Complete Authority”…! If You refuse to agree to this, Please argue with Him…?

*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.

*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept; precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go; and fall backward [backslide]; and be broken; and snared; and taken.

*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain Because you have become too lazy to Understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.

1.     Being Born Again, is NOT Church Membership…!

“The NT Born Again & ‘Church Denominations?’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (Jeremiah 20:9) Then I said, I will not make mention of Him [God]; nor speak any more in His name. But His Word was in mine heart –> as a burning fire shut up in my bones; and I was weary with forbearing; and I could not stay. [Jeremiah 23:29]

Right away, the Catholics will tell You that they are the “Real Church”…! Many other denominations make that “Same False Claim”…! In the TRUTH of the Scriptures: is that the Church of Christ, His Bride, His Redeemed Ones… are NOT a Denomination! The Church are those Truly Born Again… “Sealed with His Holy Spirit”…. And meet in a ‘Home’ or a ‘Building’…. Often called a Church! Early NT Believers met in a Home. The Jews would NOT allow them into their ‘Synagogue’. Take some time and read through the NT and examine where the early Believers met…?

2.    Being Born Again… is NOT Water Baptism….!

QUESTION: (Ephesians 4:5) One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
  
Is this ONE Baptism Water or Spirit…?

*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one Spirit we are all baptized [1Corinthians 12:13 –Spirit / Not Water!] into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]

*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

*** (1Corinthains 1:17) For Christ did ‘NOT’ send me [Paul] to Baptize; but to Preach the gospel; not in wisdom of words; lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

*** (Romans 11:6) But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.

*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.

Water Baptism and Salvation – 101 Blog.      

*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart." [Romans 8:9]
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit, Whom those who were believing in him were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was Not yet present, because Jesus had Not yet been glorified. [Acts 2:1-5]

3.    Salvation; being “Born Again”…. is the “Holy Spirit”….!

There are “ONLY” - TWO TYPES” of people here on planet earth! Those who have been Truly Born Again… and… Those who have NOT…!

*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘Does NOT’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.

*** (Jude 1:19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual: having “NOT” the [Holy] Spirit.

*** (Acts 8:18-to-22) And when Simon saw that the Holy Spirit was given through laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money,
(Act 8:19) saying, Give me this power also, that on whomever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Spirit.
(Act 8:20) But Peter said to him, May your silver perish with you, because you have thought that the gift of God [Holy Spirit] may be purchased with money.
(Act 8:21) You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is NOT right in the sight of God.
(Act 8:22) Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.

*** (2Corinthains 5:5) And He Who has worked in us for this same thing is God, who also is giving to us the earnest of the Spirit.

*** (1Peter 1:22-23) Purifying your souls in the obedience of the Truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers, love one another fervently out of a pure heart, [John 17:17
(1Pet 1:23) having been born again, NOT of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the living Word of God, and abiding forever.

… *** (Ephesians 1:13-14) in Whom also you, Hearing the Word of Truth, the gospel of our salvation, in Whom also believing, [Acts 15:8-9] you were Sealed with the Holy Spirit of Promise,
(Eph 1:14) Who is the earnest of our inheritance, to the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. [Romans 8:9]

*** (Ephesians 4:30) And do Not -> “GRIEVE” -> the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you are Sealed until the day of redemption.

“The Anointing – 101”…Blog.

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].

*** (Acts 15:8-9) And God, who knows the hearts, bore them witness, giving them the Holy Spirit even as to us.
(Act 15:9) And He put no difference between us [Jews] and them [Gentiles], purifying their hearts by faith.

Do You see from the Scriptures…. “Acts 15:8-9”…. That this….. DIVINE TRANSACTION… comes from God Alone…? You can do NOTHING to earn Salvation: it is a… “Gift of God”…based on His: Grace, Mercy & Love…! GOD sees our response to Him…. And then Seals us with His Holy Spirit…! Even your response to God… comes from Him….! Please open your Bible and read “Out Loud”…. “2Timothy 2:25-26”….? GOD even gives You… “Repentance”…!
