“Do You PRAY or ‘NOT’ – 301”…Blog. [3/?]
*** (Jonah 2:8) They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
*** (Luke 11:23) The person who isn't with Me [Jesus] is against Me, and the person who doesn't gather with Me scatters."
IF: You are truly Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God, THEN: You too, will Search the Scriptures… ‘Acts 17:11’… for Examples of HOW… God’s People Prayed, and the Answers given to them. Remember the basis for being a Disciple… is to be “Self Disciplined!” Not all Athletes make it to the Olympics…!
*** (Matthew 22:14) For MANY are called, but FEW chosen.
*** (1Corinthians 14:8) For also if a trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for the battle?
*** (Romans 12:4) For as we have many members in one body, and all members “Do NOT” = the same FUNCTION [Office]
*** (1Corinthians 9:27) No, I keep on beating my body and making it my slave so that, AFTER I have preached to others, I myself will NOT somehow be disqualified. [John 10:27-28-29]
“Saving FAITH is What? – 301” …Blog.
*** (Daniel 10:11-12-13) And HE said to me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright. For to you I am now sent. And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood trembling.
(Dan 10:12) Then HE said to me, Do not fear, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and to chasten yourself before your God, your words were heard. And I have come for your words.
(Dan 10:13) But the ruler of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days. But lo, Michael, one of the chief rulers, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
*** (Ephesians 6:10-to-18) Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
(Eph 6:11) Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
(Eph 6:12) For we do NOT wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the world's rulers, of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
(Eph 6:13) Therefore take to yourselves the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
(Eph 6:14) Therefore stand, having your loins girded about with TRUTH, and having on the breastplate of righteousness
(Eph 6:15) and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
(Eph 6:16) Above all, take the Shield of Faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
(Eph 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,
(Eph 6:18) praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching to this very thing with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
Surely You remember those NT Verses in… “Matthew 4 & Luke 4”… after the Fast of Christ Jesus, when He had conversation and was TEMPTED by Satan. Again Christ Jesus simply Said… “IT IS WRITTEN:…! Of course, Satan cannot stand against the Holy Word of God..! This is WHY it is so Very Important… that EACH of US… spend time in HIS HOLY WORD… “DAILY”…! We ae Bombarded with… DIS-INFORMATION… daily… from the News Media. Much of this… “Minutia”… is there to SIMPLY KEEP our Minds Busy. “Hardly Ever”, does ONE hear Words of TRUTH from the Media, let alone Words of Encouragement… such as we FIND in the Holy Word of God: The BIBLE…!
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are NOT discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed: day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]
*** (Hebrews 1:5-to-8) For to ‘which’ of the angels [None!] = did He [God] = say at ‘any’ time, = “You are My Son, = this day I [God] = have ‘begotten’ You [Jesus]?” = And again, = “I will be to Him [Jesus] a Father [God], = and = He [Jesus] = shall be to Me [God] = a Son?"
(Heb 1:6) And again, = when He [God] = brings in the First-born [Jesus] = into the world, = He [God] says, = “And let ‘all’ the angels of God = “WORSHIP” = Him [Jesus].”
(Heb 1:7) And of ‘the angels’ = He [God] says, = “Who makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire.”
(Heb 1:8) But to the Son [Jesus] = He [God] says, = “Your throne, = O God [Jesus], = is forever and ever. = A scepter of ‘righteousness’ = is the scepter of = Your [Jesus] kingdom.
“It is Written – 101” …Blog.
*** (Hebrews 5:8) though being a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He Suffered. [1Corinthians 5:7 Christ our Passover]
*** (Matthew 26:36-to-47) Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane. And He said to the disciples, Sit here while I go and pray there.
(Mat 26:37) And He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee with Him, and He began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
(Mat 26:38) Then He said to them, My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Wait here and watch with Me.
(Mat 26:39) And He went a little further and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Yet NOT as I will, but as You will.
(Mat 26:40) And He came to the disciples and found them asleep. And He said to Peter, What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?
(Mat 26:41) Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
(Mat 26:42) He went away again the second time and prayed, saying, My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.
(Mat 26:43) And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.
(Mat 26:44) And He left them and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same word.
(Mat 26:45) Then He came to His disciples and said to them, Sleep on now and take your rest. Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
(Mat 26:46) Rise, let us be going; behold, he who is betraying Me is at hand.
(Mat 26:47) And as He was yet speaking, behold, Judas came, one of the Twelve. And with him came a great crowd with swords and clubs, being sent from the chief priests and elders of the people.
Have You ever Thought… IF I were one of those Disciples… Surely I would NOT have gone to Sleep…? Then perhaps, may I ask You a Question…? Have You ever Prayed… for One Hour…? Do You realize that Christ Jesus often started His Day… A Great While Before DAY… “Mark 1:35”…! Probable before Sunrise. And then had the Passover dinner with His disciple and then went to the Garden to Pray! From there He was taken into custody by the Temple Police and… TRIDE by the Jewish Lawyers… at Night… Which was ILLEGAL by Jewish Law. He was already… Judge Guilty by them… and Presented to PILOT… in the early AM the next day. He had been… UP/Awake… for “24” hours… before His Crucifixion. Had prayer NOT been so important to our LORD… I don’t know How Else… he could have done what He did…!
*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. [Worshiped]
*** (John 15:22-23-24) If I [Jesus] had NOT come and spoken to them, they would not have had SIN; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
(John 15:23) He who hates Me [Jesus] hates My Father [God] also.
(John 15:24) If I had NOT done among them the works which no other did, they would not have had sin. But now they have both seen and hated Me [Jesus] and My Father [God].
*** (Jeremiah 1:8) Do NOT be afraid of their faces; for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD Jehovah.
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them; whether they will hear; or whether they will forbear; for they are [most] rebellious.
Does GOD have to use… “Another DONKEY”… Because You are Ashamed: to Speak… “His Holy Word”…?
“The NT Born Again & REFUTE with All Authority – 101”
*** (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].
Do You realize that PRAYER… will give you that “GODLY BOLDNESS”… to Speak His Holy Word…? Not only that, You will be more Motivated… to Know Exactly WHAT… His Holy Word: “TEACHES”…! When I meditate on Rewards in Heaven… I often think about the… “LOSS of Rewards”… when we could have Spoken… BUT… “CHOOSE to be SILENT”..! Remember the Indwelling Holy Spirit… uses the Truly Born Again CHRISTAIN… to speak our LORD’S WORDS OF LIFE… and the Words of Death…!
*** (Hebrews 10:29) Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy of punishment, the one who has trampled the Son of God, and who has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
*** (1Peter 4:17-18-19) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
(1Pet 4:19) Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing, as to a faithful Creator.
*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does Not love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes! [Again]
Do you Present an ‘UNBALANCED’ presentation of the GOSPEL...?
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.
