“Substitution – 303”…Blog [part 3-of-3]
Review Reason “One”…! We discussed the Names of God… with list… revealing some of His character and attributes. He stated in His Truth, His Word… “Psalms 138:2”… that His Word, is exalted above His Name! Have you “Substituted”… ‘a dream’ and/or ‘a vision’… for the Name, Character, Holiness, and Word of God? Can you say that God, the God of the bible made you so very special… that He spoke to you… “Ex Parte?” Perhaps, you had better check… just where that spirit… came from…? Can you honestly say what God supposedly said to you, is greater than these Bible verses…?
*** (Isa 55:6-to-11) ‘Seek’ Jehovah = ‘while’ = He may be found; = ‘call’ on Him = ‘while’ = He is near.
(Isa 55:7) Let the wicked = ‘forsake’ his way, = and = the unrighteous man = his thoughts; = and = let him = ‘return’ to Jehovah, = and = He will have mercy on him; = and = to our God, = for He will = ‘abundantly’ pardon.
(Isa 55:8) For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor your ways My ways, says Jehovah.
(Isa 55:9) For as = the heavens ‘are higher’ = than the earth, = so are = “My ways” = ‘higher’ than = your ways, = and = “My thoughts” = than = your thoughts.
(Isa 55:10) For as the rain comes down, = and the snow from the heavens, = and does not return there, = but waters the earth, = and makes it bring out = and bud, = and give seed to the sower = and bread to the eater;
(Isa 55:11) so ‘shall’ = “My Word be”, = which goes out of = My mouth; = it = ‘shall not’ = return to Me = void, = but it = ‘shall accomplish’ = what I please, = and = it shall certainly = ‘do’ = what I sent = ‘it’ = to do.
Review = Reason “TWO”…! This section took the Word of God as it proof of Truth. God cannot Lie… and Satan is the father of all lies. God allows… lying spirits… do deceive those in disobedience to His Word. As in the OT so today in the NT there are many False preachers and teachers… even as “Satan” has disguised himself as an ‘Angel of Light.’ The Word of God is always used to “Test Truth”… and we are ‘commanded’… to Prove all Things!
Reason “Three”, God… Jehovah God of the Bible, the Only God… will bring all things into the judgment of… “His Word”. He has given over… all judgment… to Christ Jesus. He will use the Holy Word of God… “Alone”… to judge “US!” He will ‘not use’ your… ‘dreams & visions’… nor anything else. The Fire of God’s Judgment will… Try All Works!
*** (John 12:44-to-50) But Jesus = cried out and said, = He who believes on Me = ‘does not’ = believe on Me = but on Him [God] = who sent Me.
(John 12:45) And = he who sees Me = sees Him [God] = Who sent Me.
(John 12:46) I have come = as a Light = into the world, = so that ‘whoever’ = believes on Me = should ‘not’ remain = in darkness.
(John 12:47) And = ‘if’ = any one hears My Words = and = does ‘not’ believe, = I do not [now] judge him, = for = I do not come [this time] = to judge the world, = but to save the world.
(John 12:48) He who rejects Me = 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.
(John 12:49) For = I have ‘not’ spoken = of Myself, = but = the Father [God] = Who sent Me = gave Me a command, = ‘what’ = I should say, = and = ‘what’ = I should speak.
(John 12:50) And = I know = that His command = is life everlasting. = Therefore ‘whatever’ I speak, = even as the Father said to Me, = so I ‘speak’.
*** (1Corithians 3:11-to-15) For any other foundation = can ‘no one’ lay = than the one being laid, = who is Jesus Christ. [1Peter 2:6-7-8]
(1Cor 3:12) And = if anyone builds = on this foundation = gold, silver, precious stones, = wood, hay, stubble,
(1Cor 3:13) 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.
(1Cor 3:14) If anyone's work = which he built ‘remains’, = he shall receive a ‘reward’.
(1Cor 3:15) If anyone's work = shall be ‘burned up’, = he shall suffer ‘loss’. = But he = shall be saved, = yet so as by fire [Revelation 20:10-to-15].
*** (2Peter 2:4-to-10) For = ‘if’ God = did ‘not spare’ sinning angels, = but thrust them down into hell, = and = delivered them into chains of darkness, = being reserved to judgment [Revelation 20:10-to-15].
(2Pet 2:5) And He = did ‘not’ spare the old world, = but = saved Noah the eighth one [and his family], = a preacher of righteousness, = bringing in ‘the flood’ = upon = the world of the ungodly.
(2Pet 2:6) And = turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah = into ‘ashes’, = He ‘condemned’ them with an overthrow, = setting an ‘example’ = to men = intending to live ungodly.
(2Pet 2:7) And = He delivered righteous Lot, = oppressed with = the lustful behavior of the lawless [1John 2:15-16-17].
(2Pet 2:8) For that righteous one = living among them, = in seeing and hearing, = his righteous soul = was tormented = from ‘day to day’ = with their unlawful deeds.
(2Pet 2:9) The Lord knows how = to deliver the godly = out of temptation, = and to reserve the ‘unjust’ = for a day of judgment, = to be punished,
(2Pet 2:10) and = ‘especially those’ = who walk after the flesh = in the lust of uncleanness, = and = despise dominion. = They are darers, = self-pleasing; = not trembling at glories, speaking evil.
About NOW… someone is thinking, “What has this to do with Substitution?” Many who call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus, and say they have been Christians for many years… do not care to know… what GOD has said in His Word. Say it isn’t so…? Do you spend more time, in entertainment, than in the Holy Word of God…? In your Church service, is the Holy Word of God, Proclaimed as the Only Point of Reference for those that call His Name…? Or is their ‘entertainment’… that takes the place of the Word of God…?
*** (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let us hear = the conclusion = of the whole matter. = ‘Fear God], = and = keep His commandments. = For this is = the whole ‘duty’ of man.
(Eccl 12:14) For God = ‘shall’ bring every work into judgment, = with every ‘secret’ thing, = whether it is ‘good’, = or whether ‘evil’.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, = the days come, = says the Lord Jehovah, = that I = will send = a ‘famine’ = in the land; = not a famine of bread = nor a thirst for water, = but of hearing = the Words of Jehovah.
Is it not like this today…? Why do people, who live in such a blessed nation, have such ‘disdain’… for the Holy Word of God…? Even those, that call themselves Christians, will not hear the Holy Word of God. If I had a ‘dollar’, for every time someone got mad at me, for posting the Word of God, I could ‘retire’… very comfortably. Not unlike ‘backslidden’ Israel, who did ‘not’ want to hear; the Word of God, so too today, Americans will ‘not’ hear, the Holy Word of God.
*** (James 1:22) Keep on ‘being’ = doers of the Word, = and = ‘NOT’ = merely hearers = who = “Deceive” themselves.
*** (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If = they do NOT speak according TO this Word, = it is because NO light = is in them.
*** (Luke 16:31) And he said to him, If they = do NOT = hear Moses and the Prophets, = they will NOT = be persuaded, = even though one rose from the dead.
Have you ever… got angry, at someone that posted the Word of God…? Many times, people will say, “You are Judging me!” Or, “Why are you using the Word of God, to slam me?” Can you imagine that? One calls the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus… the Living Word of God… and then says that they are being ‘slammed’… by “His Word”…? Perhaps they themselves, are being convicted in their spirits… by the Word of God, the Sword of the Spirit! If someone is in … ‘fellowship & obedience’… to the Word of God; there is then… “No Condemnation!”
*** (Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, = it is said, = The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, = if these are His doings. = Do not = “My Words” = do ‘good’ = to him = who ‘walks’ uprightly? [Absolutely Yes!]
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with… “His Word”...!
What have you “Substituted”… in your thought processes, for the Holy Word of God…? Are you in obedience to the Word of God…? I neither ‘accuse or excuse’, your decisions… but simply encourage you… to return… to the “God of the Word”… and to the “Word of God!” Do you daily feed yourself on His Word…? You think nothing of eating three meals and snacks. And yet may only hear the Word, at Church, if even that? Many ‘never’ read their Bibles… “Daily!”
(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.
(1Samuel 3:21) And Jehovah = appeared again in = Shiloh. = For Jehovah [God] = revealed Himself = to Samuel = in Shiloh = ‘by’ = the Word of Jehovah.
Has your ‘Substitution’… been that so called, ‘Christian Music?’ Many times I cannot listen to it, because of the message it sends. How can it be called Christian when… “Jesus or God”… is never mentioned? It is mostly, ‘he or him’ or some other vague reference to God? Simply read the Psalms… the hymnbook of the Old Testament and see what the Real Pattern is for God’s Glory! Remember…. “Every Song is a Sermon!”
*** (Matthew 4:4) But He [Jesus] answered = and said, = It is written, = "Man shall ‘not’ live = by bread alone, = but by = ‘every’ Word = that proceeds out of the mouth of God."
*** (2Corinthians 10:3-to-6) Of course, = we are living in the flesh, = but we ‘do not’ fight = in a fleshly way.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons = of our warfare = are not those of the flesh. = Instead, = they have the ‘power’ of God = to demolish fortresses. = We tear down arguments
(2Cor 10:5) and = ‘every proud obstacle’ = that is raised ‘against’ = the knowledge of God, = taking ‘every thought’ = captive = in order to = ‘obey’ = Christ.
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready = to punish every act of disobedience = when your obedience is complete [‘Proverbs 28:13’ -&- ‘1John 1:5-to-10’].
*** (2Corinthians 13:5-6) examine yourselves, = whether you ‘are’ in the faith, = ‘prove’ your own selves. = Do you ‘not know’ your own selves, = that Jesus Christ [Romans 8:9] = is in you, = ‘unless’ = you are reprobates?
(2Cor 13:6) But I trust = that you will know = that we = are ‘not’ reprobates.
“PRAYER”: Father God, I come to you in the merits of finished work of Christ Jesus, and ‘openly confess’, to You that I ‘do not’ love Your Word, as I should. I turn from myself and my ways… and turn to “Your Word”, to lead me, guide me and teach me, ‘You Way!’ Thank you Lord, for hearing my prayer, and for chastening me, as You see fit, that I may bring forth… “Glory to Your Name and Your Kingdom”… I ask this in Jesus Name and for Your Glory! Amen & Amen!
*** (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 [God] = have magnified = Your Word = “ABOVE – ALL” = Your Name. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
