“Ashamed – 101”…Blog.
Dear = ‘Name Withheld’…
*** (Romans 1:16-17) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
(Rom 1:17) For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."
I wondered why… you share with me the remarks people made to you, because I posted the Holy Word of God, on your Fact Book Posts? I cannot imagine that a ‘Real Christian’ would be offended by the Word of God. But of course ‘many’ today call themselves Christian and are really not. Here in America… Christianity has become a ‘Cultural Religion’… and ‘Not’ one of practice and obedience… to the Word of God.
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with “His Word”...!"
*** (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?
*** (Ephesians 5:27) that He might present it to Himself as the glorious church, without spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that it should be holy and without blemish.
There are many… religious applications here on Face Book. One is… ‘What God wants you to know!’ It is by far the Worst. Many of the saying and ditties are not Truth… and cannot be validated by the Word of God. That one and many others substitute the Word of God… with religious sayings… that are not Biblically Sound in their teaching. A simple Counterfeit… that is un-discerned by the unlearned and ignorant take as truth. Many do not really want to know what the Word of God means or says… about any subject. And yet they only say… I Love Jesus… but leave out saying… “I Love His Word!”
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your truth. Your Word is truth.
*** (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.
God, the God of the Bible… has set His Word… “Above His Name!”
1. Elohim… “God” His power and might… Genesis 1:1 & Psalms 19:1.
2. El-Elyon… “Most High God... Gen 14:17-20, Isaiah 14:13-14.
3. El Olam… “The Everlasting God”… Isaiah 40:28-31.
4. El Roi… “The Strong One that sees”… Genesis 16:13.
5. El Shaddi… “God Almighty”… Genesis 17:1 & Psalms 91:3.
6. Adonai… “Lord”, the Lordship of God… Malachi 1:16.
7. Jehovah… “(Yahweh) The Lord, God’s Eternal Nature… Genesis 2”4.
8. Jehovah-Jireh… “The Lord will provide”… Genesis 22:13-14.
9. Jehovah-Maccaddeshem… “The Lord your sanctifier”… Exodus 31:13.
10. Jehovah-Nissi… ‘The Lord our banner”… Exodus 17:15.
11. Jehovah-Rapha… “The Lord our healer”… Exodus 15:26.
12. Jehovah-Rohi… “The Lord my shepherd”… Psalms 23:1.
13. Jehovah-Sabboah… “The Lord of Hosts”… Isaiah 6:1-to-3.
14. Jehovah-Shalom… “The Lord is peace”… Judges 6:24.
15. Jehovah-Shammah… “The Lord Who is present”… Ezekiel 48:35.
16. Jehovay-Tsidkenu… “The Lord our righteousness… Jeremiah 23:6
17. I AM… “The Lord Eternal”… Exodus 3:12-15.
There are a few… of the Names of God, found in His Word. Yet He has set His Word… above His Name! There are many more...!
People ‘Only’… want to hear the positive message of the Gospel and not the negative. That is what is called an “Unbalanced Gospel”. Verse by verse, Chapter by chapter… the Bible admonishes Sin… more than it speaks about Blessing. Even in the NT… the Scripture speak to the Sin in the Churches… more than the good they are doing. So today, in a survey of ten thousand Pastors, Bible School and Seminary Professors… “Only about One Third = Believed in the Complete Authority of the Bible = for those that say they are Christians. Where does that leadership… leave the average believer… when the leadership does not believe God and His Word?
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that "man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God."
*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of Jehovah was to them precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken and snared and taken.
Perhaps allow me… to ask a simple question. “Is this world getting better or worse = because of the Witness of those that call themselves… Christian?” Is America getting better or worse = because of the Witness of those that call themselves Christian? Is what one hears in the Media about Christianity… from the Christian Programming… More or Less… Bible? Is the Bible being upheld by the Christians… or do most ‘not’ even know their Bibles…?
*** (Luke 17:26) And as it was in the days of Noah, so it also shall be in the days of the Son of Man.
*** (Isaiah 24:1-2) Behold, Jehovah empties the land and makes it bare, and distorts its face, and scatters its inhabitants.
(Isa 24:2) And as it is with the people, so it shall be with the priest; as with the servant, so with the master; as with the handmaid, so it is with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so with the debtor.
Each year… the president gives a “State of the Union Message.” Yet, when was the last time you heard a message from the Pulpit or in the Christian Media… about the State of the Church of Christ Jesus…? How was it in the days of Noah? Simple Answer… Wickedness covered the face of the Earth… and God destroyed mankind… save for Noah and his family. How then is America and the Church… getting Better and Not Worse…? To shut one’s eyes to the condition of the Church… is to not want to know, the Word of God!
*** (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.
*** (Mark 10:11-12) So he said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.
(Mark 10:12) And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."
*** (Luke 16:17-18) However, it is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for one stroke of a letter in the law to be dropped.
(Luke 16:18) Any man who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery."
There are more… divorces and adulterous remarriages… among Professing Christians… than among unbelievers. What does that say for the ‘Spiritual Condition’… of those that call the Blessed Name of Jesus…? How come many that call His Name… never read and study His Word and yet say that they Love Jesus? How can one love Jesus and… “Not Love His Word = as He is the Living Word?” Please tell me… of those you know… How Many… read and study His Word… daily?
*** (2Corinthians 4:16) For this cause we do not faint; but though our outward man perishes, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
*** (1Peter 2:2-3) desire the sincere milk of the Word, as newborn babes, so that you may grow by it;
(1Pet 2:3) if truly you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
If someone gets upset… by the posting of the Word of God… that leads me to Believe… that person “Does NOT Know”… the Author of the Word of God, Christ Jesus… Lord of Lords… King of Kings! Once again… how can one say the ‘Love Jesus’… and then “Not Love His Word?” How can one say they Love Jesus… and then “Not Obey = His Word”…? Simply ask yourself and others that question!
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being doers of the word, and not merely hearers who deceive themselves.
*** (Luke 6:46) "Why do you keep calling Me [Jesus] 'Lord, Lord,' but don't do what I tell you?
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for they are rebellious.
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man = does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are = foolishness = to him; neither can he = know = them, because they are spiritually discerned.
(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]
