“Your SILENT WITNESS for Christ Jesus – 101” …Blog.

“Your SILENT WITNESS for Christ Jesus – 101” …Blog.

IF: It were a Crime to be a “Born Again Christian”… would there be “Enough Evidence”… to Convict You…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?

*** (Hebrews 13:8-9) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today-and forever!
(Heb 13:9) Stop being carried away by all kinds of unusual teachings, for it is good that the heart be strengthened by grace, Not by food laws that have Never helped those who follow them.

*** (1Peter 4:10-to-16) As good managers of God's grace in its various forms, serve one another with the gift each of you has received.
(1Pet 4:11) Whoever speaks must speak God's words. Whoever serves must serve with the strength that God supplies, so that in every way God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. Glory and power belong to him forever and ever! Amen.
(1Pet 4:12) Dear friends, do Not be surprised by the fiery ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
(1Pet 4:13) Instead, because you are participating in the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that you may be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed.
(1Pet 4:14) If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God is resting on you. [Romans 8:9]
(1Pet 4:15) Of course, none of you should suffer for being a murderer, thief, criminal, or troublemaker.
(1Pet 4:16) But IF you suffer for being a Christian, do Not feel ashamed, but glorify God with that name.

Did You know that your “Lifestyle speaks Volumes”… “FOR or AGAINST”… Christ Jesus…? Of course, You thought it was ONLY your Verbal witness for Christ! Some time ago, I attended a Beach Baptism here in Florida. Some of the Pastors do this as a witness to Strangers. Others use a Church Baptismal Pool within the Church. I was Surprised to say the least, when a well-known couple at Church allowed their Teenage daughter to be Baptized. The two piece bathing suit she wore was… ‘Almost Missing’… as there was Not much there! One could see the older & younger men and their various reactions to her outfit. My Question was, “Why would a Christian ‘Mother & Father’ – Even Allow her Daughter to be “Un-dressed” like that”…? Each of us has a witness for Christ Jesus and “What Exactly” we ‘Truly’ believe. I was at a Wal-Mart and had bought some beer. My friend asked me, “I thought You were a Christian”…? “Yes I Am & No”… I do not drink beer: but use it to Cook any Fresh Sausage. Surely You have been to a state fair and had sausage cooked in beer? The World is Always Watching every one of US… ‘Checking us OUT’… to see how Christ is ‘Real or Not Real’… in our Lives…! May I simply suggest that there are Three [3] or more areas, wherein we Have Our Witness… “For or Against”… Christ Jesus…? “Spiritual” – “Social” -&- “Sexual”… are a few I would like to speak about.

*** (1Thessalonians 2:9-to-16) For, brothers, you remember our labor and toil. For laboring night and day in order Not to put a burden on any one of you, we preached the gospel of God to you.
(1Thes 2:10) You and God are witnesses how holily and justly and blamelessly we were to you who believe,
(1Thes 2:11) even as you know how we exhorted and comforted and testified to each one of you, as a father to his children,
(1Thes 2:12) that you should walk worthy of God, Who has called you to His kingdom and glory.
(1Thes 2:13) And for this cause we thank God without ceasing, that when you received the Word of hearing, of God, you welcomed it as the Word of God, Not as a word of men, but as it is, truly the Word of God, which also effectually works in you who believe.

(1Thes 2:14) For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also have suffered these things by your own countrymen, even as they also by the Jews;
(1Thes 2:15) who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, also driving us out and they do not please God and being contrary to all men,
(1Thes 2:16) forbidding us to speak to the nations [Gentiles] that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always; but the wrath has come upon them to the uttermost.

*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding. [James 1:5-to-8 & Job 28:28 & Luke 12:5]

*** (Jeremiah 23:29)
Is not My Word like a FIRE? Says the LORD Jehovah; and like a Hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? [Sword: Hebrews 4:11-12-13]

“WHO – is the Word of God? – 101” …Blog.

  (Proverbs 30:4) Who has gone up to Heaven and has come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know.

*** (1Timothy 6:11-to-14) But you, O man of God, Flee these things And follow after Righteousness, Godliness, Faith, Love, Patience, and Meekness.
(1Tim 6:12) Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you are also called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
(1Tim 6:13) I charge you before God (Who makes all things alive) and in the sight of Christ Jesus (Who witnessed the good confession to Pontius Pilate),
(1Tim 6:14) that you keep the commandment without spot and without blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.

*** (2Timothy 2:2-to-5) And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
(2Tim 2:3) Therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
(2Tim 2:4) No one who wars tangles with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him [Christ] who chose him to be a soldier.
(2Tim 2:5) And also if anyone competes, he is Not crowned unless he competes lawfully.

*** (Hebrews 12:1-to-4) Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
(Heb 12:2) looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God.
(Heb 12:3) For consider Him Who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in your minds.
(Heb 12:4) You have Not yet resisted unto blood [Death], striving against sin.

Covenant Israel, God’s ‘Peculiar & Chosen’ Peoples… were to be God’s Witnesses… to the World. When they Rejected Christ Jesus as their Messiah, this was given over to the NT Born Again Gentiles in Christ. Even so, “Jews for Jesus”… is an active witness by Jews to Jews of their Messiah. When this times of the gentiles be fulfilled [Luke 21:24], Christ Jesus will come back and set up His “Millennial Kingdom” and “RULE with a Rod of Iron”… as Satan will be bound to the Bottomless Pit for those Thousand years! [Revelation 20:1-to-7] Those Believing Jews will be restored to their Witness before the Nations! IF Only these… True NT Believers: Would KNOW their Scripture…? But “MANY” do NOT, Nor do they seem to care about KNOW: Exactly what their Bible have as… “Doctrine & Teaching”…! Why else would there be So Very MUCH False Teaching & Teachers…? Remember the PTL Club and their “Air Conditioned Dog House”…? No wonder they “Failed”….!

*** (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.

What about the “Social Aspect” of your Witness for Christ Jesus and His Kingdom…? Most of whom have LEFT Christ and His Kingdom and have Substituted the Corrupt Political System. Many American Christians [?] simply KNOW More about Politics, than they do the Holy Word of God…! MOST Cannot take their Bibles and Defend their Faith with… “Bible Chapters & Verses”…! But they CAN tell You about the Supposed Constitution and False Conspiracy Teachings. In their minds they have EXCHANGED the Kingdom of God… for Politics..! In either the OT nor the NT… GOD Never used the Political System… to change the Hearts of Men…! Even with all the Divorces & Re-Marriages into Adultery [Mark 10:11-12]… their Lifestyles speak VOLUMS of their witness: Leaving out God’s Holy Word…!

Did “Christ JESUS”… Say… “Some”… “Few”… or… “MANY”… ?
… He Christ, said… “MANY”…!

*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) MANY = will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I [Jesus] never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!

False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]
… Why does the Church “FORBID” a homosexual to ‘Practice’… and then “ALLOW” Divorced & Remarried Christians [?]: Mark 10:11-12… to continue to Practice their “Christian ADULTERY”…?  What happened to… “Proverbs 28:13” & “Romans 6:1-2”...?

“Remain ‘Unmarried’ or ‘Be Reconciled’ – 101” …Blog

*** (1Corinthains 7:10-11) And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let NOT the wife Depart from her husband:
(1Cor 7:11) But and if she depart; let her remain UNMARRIED; or be RECONCILED to her husband: and let “NOT” the husband ‘Divorce’ his wife.

“What does GOD say about You? – 101” …Blog.

I remember being a Young Man… when I was Not Born Again. I always left a few buttons unbuttoned to show off my Chest. That has since shifted to the Women: who Show MORE as an attraction to Men. Attend Any Church here in America, and You will see… “Christian [?] Women”… and their Daughters, in various stages of “Dress or Undress”…! One could easily say that they are dressed in a… “Sexually Provocateur Manner”…? Yes, in a “Church Worship Service!” And those that “Know Better”… have seemingly Contracted: “Silence about this Issue”…? [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21] I once heard a country preacher say, “IF the barn needs Painting, Do SO…!” Some have taken that to the Uttermost [Gutter-Most!].

*** (1Peter 3:1-to-6) In a similar way, you wives must submit yourselves to your husbands so that, even if some of them refuse to obey the word, they may be won over without a word through your conduct as wives
(1Pet 3:2) when they see your pure and reverent lives.
(1Pet 3:3) Your beauty should Not be an external one, consisting of braided hair or the wearing of gold ornaments and dresses.
(1Pet 3:4) Instead, it should be the inner disposition of the heart, consisting in the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great value in the sight of God.
(1Pet 3:5) After all, this is how holy women who set their hope on God used to make themselves beautiful in the past. They submitted themselves to their husbands,
(1Pet 3:6) just as Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord. You have become her daughters by doing good and by not letting anything terrify you.

*** (Hebrews 3:1) Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.

*** (1Peter 1:16) For it is written, "You must be holy, because I [God] am holy."
(1Pet 1:17) If you call "Father" the one who judges everyone impartially according to what he has done, you must live in the fear of the Lord as long as you are strangers here.
(1Pet 1:18) For you know that it was not with perishable things like silver or gold that you have been ransomed from the worthless way of life handed down to you by your ancestors,
(1Pet 1:19) but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or defect.
(1Pet 1:20) On the one hand, he was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but on the other hand, He was revealed at the end of time for your sake.

“The NT Born Again & the ‘Palestine Conflict’ – 101” …Blog.

“The NT Born Again & the ‘Palestine Conflict’ – 101” …Blog.

When thinking about this ISSUE… most are “Ignorant of the Promises” found in the Bible for Israel…! LAND & the control there of has always been a GLOBAL ISSUE..! The USA was taken from the Native American Indians! Most of Europe was taken by WARING CLANS from different Regions. Asia has been in the same straights as different Dictators ruled. Perhaps this global issue could be listed as… “One of Greed”…? IF You are a student of World Governments and their respective Sociology: there is a mix without Boundaries. There is ONLY One Nation, to who LAND was given by GOD…! All other Land was simply taken in Conflict by the Strongest! The World Wars and other Military Conflicts have always been a… “Land & Control Issue!”

*** (James 4:1-to-4) From where do wars and fighting’s among you come? Is it not from this, from your lusts which war in your members?
(Jas 4:2) You desire, and do not have. You murder, and are jealous, and cannot obtain. You fight and war, yet you have not because you ask not.
(Jas 4:3) You ask and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your lusts.
(Jas 4:4) Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever desires to be a friend of the world: is the “Enemy of God”.

*** (Deuteronomy 9:4-5) Do not speak in your heart, after the LORD Jehovah your God has cast them out from before you, saying: For my righteousness, the LORD Jehovah has brought me in to possess this land. But for the WICKEDNESS of these nations, the LORD Jehovah your God drives them out from before you.
(Deut 9:5) Not for your righteousness, or for the uprightness of your heart, do you go to possess their land. But for the WICKEDNESS of these nations the LORD Jehovah your God drives them out from before you, so that He may perform the Word which the LORD Jehovah swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

*** (Isaiah 62:6-7) I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem, who will not always be silent all the day nor all the night; you who remember Jehovah, do not be silent.
(Isa 62:7) And give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

*** (Jeremiah 31:35-36-37) So says the LORD Jehovah; Who gives the sun for a light by day and the laws of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, who divides the sea when its waves roar; the LORD Jehovah of Hosts is His name;
(Jer 31:36) if those ordinances depart from Me, says the LORD Jehovah; the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before Me forever.
(Jer 31:37) So says the LORD Jehovah; If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be searched out, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, says the LORD Jehovah.

God gave to Israel, His Covenant People… all the Land from the River or Egypt, the Nile to the Tigris Euphrates rivers. God has NOT given No others peoples or nations this Promise. Alexander the Great, Hitler, Genghis Kahn and a plethora of OTHERS have sought to Rule the World…! Their Failures are an indication that God, the God of the Bible did NOT support their False Claims…! Remember Babylon, who took Israel into Captivity for 70 years: What happened to them…? Where are “ANY” of the Supposed World Rulers…? MOST do NOT know the History of the area called Palestine! Before Israel became a Nation, it was used by the Arab countries as an ‘Area of Deportation for the Less Desirable Arab” trouble makers. All the time the Palestine, Arab Rejects were there: what did they do to “Improve & Develop” the Country…? Absolutely Nothing, in fact it was governed by Jordan. Since Israel has… “Built & Prospered”… their Country since 1948: The Arabs HATE Israel and want its Land as theirs! ISLAM the Religion of most Arabs, hates Israel…! They will readily Claim: Descendants of Abraham… BUT REJECT: the God of Abraham and His covenants to Israel, “God’s Chosen People”…!

*** (Genesis 12:2-3) And I [God] will make you [Abraham]a great nation. And I will bless you and make your name great. And you shall be a blessing.
(Gen 12:3) And I will bless those that bless you; and curse the one who curses you. And in you shall all families of the earth be blessed. [2Chronicles 6:32-33]

*** (Ezekiel 37:26-27-28) And I [God] will cut a ‘covenant of peace’ with them. It shall be an ‘everlasting covenant’ with them. And I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever.
(Eze 37:27) And My tabernacle shall be with them. Yea, I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
(Eze 37:28) And the ‘nations’ shall know that I the LORD Jehovah ‘sanctify’ Israel, when My sanctuary shall be in their midst forever.

(Psalms 121:4) Behold, He [God] Who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Psalms 121:4  הנה לא־ינום ולא יישׁן שׁומר ישׂראל׃                                                    

(Psalms 122:6) Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; those who love you shall be blessed.
Psalms 122:6  שׁאלו שׁלום ירושׁלם ישׁליו אהביך׃

Perhaps a look at the Religion of the Arabs…? Islam and the Ottoman empire made an incursion into Europe and were defeated. During the Catholic Crusades, Muslims were Slaughtered by Edict of the Pope. The sects of Islam cannot even get along with each other and thus: Conflict in the middle east for Centuries! Even in predominately Muslim Countries there is Sectarian Fighting’s between the… “Sunni & Shia”…! One thing the all agree on is the Destruction of Israel and the CONFISCATION of their “Lands & Property Improvements”…! Israel is even Compassionate enough to LEAVE ON: Water & Utilities in the Gaza Area, even when they are Bombarding Israel with Missiles. Oh Yes, those MUNITIONS are being Supplied by Egypt and Other Arab Nations, “SURIPTITOUSLY”….! Almost the same way our “Allied Friends”… supplied North Viet Nam… “During that Conflict!” As a Veteran with “Declassified Secret Information”…there is MUCH that our American Public is… “NOT PRIVY TO”…! Recently remember those… “WIKI Leaks”…?

*** (Genesis 15:18)  In the same day the LORD Jehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying, I have given this land to your seed, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates,

*** (Genesis 17:1-to-14) And when Abram was ninety-nine years old, Jehovah appeared to Abram and said to him, I am the Almighty God! Walk before Me and be perfect.
(Gen 17:2) And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.
(Gen 17:3) And Abram fell on his face. And God talked with him, saying,
(Gen 17:4) As for Me, behold! My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.
(Gen 17:5) Neither shall your name any more be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham. For I have made you a father of many nations.
(Gen 17:6) And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, greatly so, and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come out of you.
(Gen 17:7) And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your seed after you in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God to you and to your seed after you.
(Gen 17:8)  And I will give the land to you in which you are a stranger, and to your seed after you, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession. And I will be their God.
(Gen 17:9) And God said to Abraham, And you shall keep My covenant, you and your seed after you in their generations.
(Gen 17:10) This is My covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your seed after you. Every male child among you shall be circumcised.
(Gen 17:11) And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin. And it shall be a token of the covenant between Me and you.
(Gen 17:12) And a son of eight days shall be circumcised among you, every male child in your generations; he that is born in the house, or bought with silver of any stranger who is not of your seed.
(Gen 17:13) He that is born in your house, and he that is bought with your silver, must be circumcised. And My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
(Gen 17:14) And the uncircumcised male child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.

“Israel & Jerusalem & the ‘NT Born Again’ – 101” …Blog.
NOW to the Real Issue…? There are Those WHO claim to Know Jesus [?]: “YET proclaim that Palestine does NOT belong to Israel”…!

*** (John 4:22-to-26)  You worship what you do not know, we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. [2Chronicles 6:32-33]
(John 4:23)  But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
(John 4:24)  God is a spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
(John 4:25)  The woman said to Him, I know that Messiah is coming, who is called Christ. When He has come, He will tell us all things.
(John 4:26)  Jesus said to her, I AM, the One speaking to you.

IF One is Truly Born Again… and Holds to the COMPLETE AUTHORITY of the Bible, The HOLY WORD of GOD… there is No Other Conclusion: POSSIBLE…!

ISRAEL does “NOT” belong to ‘Any’… of the Arab Countries…! It belongs ONLY to God’s Covenant People ISRAEL… even though they are now in Rebellion to God: and only “Partially Believe” His Holy Word..! GOD has “SET ASIDE ISRAEL”… as the spokesperson for God. He has given that to the Gentile NT Born Again Believers… till the “Fullness of the Gentiles is Complete!” Israel will ONCE AGAIN be brought into Complete Obedience to the LORD… and all the nations will come to IT…!

*** (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”.

*** (Luke 21:24) And they shall fall by the sword's edge. And shall be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the nations until the times of the nations [Gentiles] is fulfilled.

*** (Matthew 25:29-to-34) For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will abound. But from him who has not, even that which he has shall be taken away from him.
(Mat 25:30) And throw the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
(Mat 25:31) But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He shall sit on the throne of His glory.
(Mat 25:32) And all nations shall be gathered before Him. And He shall separate them from one another, as a shepherd divides the sheep from the goats.
(Mat 25:33) And indeed He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats off the left.
(Mat 25:34) Then the King shall say to those on His right hand, Come, blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

*** (1Peter 4:17-18) 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 scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Bottom Line…? IF You do NOT stand for Israel… Perhaps You should Examine your… “OWN Salvation & Belief SYSTEM”…?

*** (2Corinthains 13:5) examine yourselves; whether you are in the faith; prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you [Romans 8:9]; unless you are Reprobates?
