“Substitute – 303”…Blog.
What does the word… ‘Substitute’ mean to you? I remember in elementary school that the ‘Substitute’ teachers were young and pretty. Even though a child’s eyes the world can be seen in its reality. ‘Substitutes’ today can be for food stuffs, imitation bacon bits, imitation flavorings, imitation salt and the list goes on and on. In this sinful world… ‘prostitutes’ take the place of marriage, to the destruction of the family unit. An ‘affair’… is the ‘Substitute’ for one’s mate which leads to this pandemic of “Divorce and Adulterous Remarriage”. Many ‘prefer’ the… Substitute… for the Real. Lies for Truth…!
*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Most who use the Internet… see a plethora of ‘Substitutions’… for the “Truth!” Often times, the NEWS [Nothing Every Worthwhile Said]… with it Political Correct Agenda [PC]… distort the real facts. Their agenda is one of… ‘LIES and Half Truths’… “Substituting”… for the Truth! ‘Political’ ads are ‘famous’ for this tactic. Actually “Politics”… is the largest world religion. Its followers and disciples will… Lie, Malign and Connive… just to get their candidate elected. Remember… “YOU”… voted for ‘Change’… but I did not! But “Change” to ‘What’…? An ever increasing… 14,000,000,000 “Billion Dollar Deficit”… that can… “Never” be repaid!
*** (Proverbs 12:22) Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
What do we use… as our “Criteria for Truth?” Many of the ‘posts’ on the internet, once again, have a specific ‘agenda’. Sometimes it is well disguised and discernment is needed to find out the Truth! How about for those of “US”… Who ‘say’ we are Christians and ‘say’ we Love Jesus…? What is our ‘Criteria’ for the Truth? But of course… it is ‘not’ what our Church preaches or teaches. It is ‘not’ what our Christian friends share with us. It is “ONLY”… the Holy Word of God… His Written Word… the Bible! Do you; in sharing His Truth… “Substitute ANYTHING… for His Truth?”
*** (Numbers 23:19) God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (2Timothy 2:9) Because of it I am experiencing trouble, even to the point of being chained like a criminal. However, God's Word is not Bound.
*** (Hebrews 4:12-13) For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
(Heb 4:13) Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things are naked and opened to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a fire? says Jehovah; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
“SUBSTITUTION”… is what is going on… by those who call the Holy and Blessed Name of Christ Jesus. I see all sorts of stories and ditties… even a post, ‘God wants you to know’… which has Substituted Platitudes… instead of using the Holy Word of God. What God wants you to know… is written in His Holy Word. Why would ‘anyone’… who says they are Washed in the Blood… of the “Precious Lamb of God”… “Christ Jesus the Messiah”… ‘Substitute’… Anything for His Holy Word…? Please… tell me… “Why”…? Many do just that…!
*** (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."
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him [Satan], saying, It is written that "man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God."
*** (Deuteronomy 8:3) And He humbled you and allowed you to hunger, and then He fed you with manna, which you did not know, neither did your fathers know it, so that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes out of the mouth of Jehovah man shall live.
What if ‘Anything’… could be more important... than the Holy ‘Eternal’ Blessed – Word of God? …Absolutely Nothing! So why then do you use a… “Substitute”… when sharing Truth about God, the God of the Bible. If you were a professional writer… people would know you ‘by and because’ of your published writings. God has given His Holy Word… to All Mankind… so that they might Know HIM… “Through His Holy Word”. He gives His Holy Spirit… to those who are Truly Born Again… so that we might… ‘Know & Understand’… “Him and His Holy Word”…!
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And Jehovah appeared again in Shiloh. For Jehovah revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the Word of Jehovah.
*** (Psalms 19:7-8-9) The Law of Jehovah is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of Jehovah is sure, making the simple wise.
(Psalms 19:8) The Precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart; the Commandments of Jehovah are pure, giving light to the eyes.
(Psalms 19:9) The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of Jehovah are true and righteous altogether,
*** (Psalms 19:14) Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Jehovah, my Rock and my Redeemer.
How Important… is the Holy Word of God to… ‘YOU?’ Do you use it all the time… or do you ‘Substitute’… your thoughts and stories for “IT?” Would ‘You’… “Defend the Word of God”… to your ‘Death?’ Ok perhaps you would ‘Not’… but How Important is the Word of God… To God Himself…? Since Christ Jesus is the “Living Word”… what do you ‘now’… “Think?” Those that are “NOT Born Again”… by God’s Holy Spirit… have “No Love”… for His Holy Word! To them… it is just simply… “Foolishness!”
*** (1Corinthians 2:12-to-16) But we have = NOT = received the spirit of the world, = BUT = the Spirit from God, = SO = that we might = KNOW = the things that are freely given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) These things we also speak, = NOT = in words which man's wisdom teaches, = BUT = which the Holy Spirit teaches, = COMPARING = Spiritual things with Spiritual.
(1Cor 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.
(1Cor 2:15) But he who is spiritual judges = ALL = things, yet he himself = IS = judged by no one.
(1Cor 2:16) For who = WHO = known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we = HAVE = the mind of Christ.
There is a “War”… for God’s Truth = God’s Word… in the hearts and minds of mankind. This world lies under the control of Satan and sinful men. The last thing they want ‘to hear’ is the Holy Word of God! Why do you think there is so very much… “Bashing & Slamming”… against God’s Truth? Simply because it is… “True – Truth!” One never sees news articles speaking about or against… “Pink Elephants!” Who fights against the Fairy Stories? … No One..!
*** (Luke 4:5-to-8) And the Devil, leading Him up into a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
(Luke 4:6) And the Devil said to Him [Jesus] , = All this power = I will give you, = and the glory of them; = for it has been delivered to me. = And I give it = to whomever = I will.
(Luke 4:7) Therefore if you will worship me, all shall be yours.
(Luke 4:8) And Jesus answered and said to him, Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve."
*** (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… in ‘Psalms 138:2’… has said that HE… “Magnified”… His Word… above His Name. The above list is ‘only’… 17 of the Names of God… displaying some of His Character. There are ‘many’ more though out the Scriptures, The Bible. Now… please tell me… “IF”… God’s Words are so very important… why don’t ‘YOU’… share “His Holy Word?” Why do you… ‘Substitute Platitudes’ about God? When Christ Jesus was in conflict with Satan, He only had to say… “IT IS WRITTEN”…! IF you really believe God… and Love JESUS… then you will use His Word. IF you do not… ‘Love Jesus’… you will certainly ashamed to… Use His Holy Word…!

"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, = The Truth = of 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?
