“Why No Unity – 101”…Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 14:33) For God = is not = the author of confusion, = but of peace, as in = all churches = of the saints.
After reading posts… for a while, ‘a stranger’ would quickly come to the conclusion that ‘Christians’ are a confusing “Bunch!” All say they Believe in God… But they ‘all’ have differing opinions on Who God really is. Some hold to their Denomination Line and some hold to what their Pastor says… as if neither have… ‘Any Real Idea’ of what they really… “Believe?” No wonder why the Unbeliever and the Atheists… are confused about God.
*** (1Cointhians 14:7-8) Yet lifeless things giving a sound, whether flute or harp, if they do not give a distinction in the sound, how will it be known what is being piped or harped?
(1Cor 14:8) For also if a trumpet gives an uncertain sound, = who shall prepare himself for the battle?
One will List… what they believe in order to gender support for their stand. Another will claim special revelation directly from God. Still yet another will use the ‘Excuse’… “You know Christians”… Differ on their ‘opinions’ of Interpretation. One excuse after another and yet when someone suggests… “Only – the Word of God”… they are [figuratively] stoned by the others. It is the same on… almost every Bible discussion board I have visited on or posted on.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your truth. Your Word is truth.
One says… you must keep the Sabbath, another says you must be Water Baptized. Still another only partially believes the Bible, and another says that that is ‘all’ they believe. How can the same God, have so very many followers… who differ so widely… in so many different areas. Some say God loves everyone and other say if you are not ‘the elected’ you are damned. One believes the Scriptures literally and another believes it all to be figurative. Still others hold only to their KJV version… and will not read any other translation.
*** (Ephesians 4:3-to-6) endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
(Eph 4:4) There is one body and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling,
(Eph 4:5) one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
(Eph 4:6) one God and Father = of all, = who is above all = and through all = and in you all.
*** (Colossians 1:27) to whom God wanted to make known the glorious riches of this secret among the gentiles = which is Christ in you, = the hope of glory.
Can it really be that Simple…? How then can “God”, “The Holy Spirit” and “Christ”… be in you ‘All’… and there be… ‘so very much diversity’ of Belief in the Same GOD? May I simply suggest that ‘Those’… “Do Not = believe GOD = and His Holy Word… The Bible? Why else would there be so very much diversity and arguing over… “Truth?” Could it be that many put their “Ego”… and their personal beliefs… before and above… “What the Bible really Says?”
*** (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?
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a fire? Says Jehovah; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
The Exactness of a Perfect God… is revealed in “His Perfect Holy Word!” That is why there will be ‘no’ excuses… and ‘no’ grading on the curve. When God calls “Sin”… “Sin”… that is ‘exactly’… what it IS! There is no deviation from His Word, the Bible… no matter what your personal interpretation says. It is “His Interpretation” that counts… “Not Yours!” How then can God, the God of the Bible… guarantee that “His Interpretation”… will be the same in All His Children…?
*** (Ephesians 3:16-to-19) that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man;
(Eph 3:17) that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
(Eph 3:18) may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height,
(Eph 3:19) and to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.
The Holy Spirit… ends ‘All’ confusion! How can that be… when there are so very many views of what it means to be a… “Christian?” Would you simply believe that it is… so simple as… “Disobedience?” Many simply have the Belief in Jesus or God… but that belief is in their… “Head Only”… and not in their heart! Could it be because there is ‘Confusion’… between head and heart? Why else would on get so… ‘Offended’… when presented… “The Holy Word of God…?”
*** (John 15:21-22) But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
(John 15:22) 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.
In a brash statement… someone 'actually' said to me… “It ceases to be Truth… because ‘you’ did not speak it in… Love!” Since when is the “Truth of God”… only valid… when it is supposedly spoken in… “What ‘Their’ Definition of Love Is?” Absolutely Never! Gods’ God’s Truth is Still God’s Truth… no matter ‘how’ it is spoken. The problem is… “Each of Us”… defines and perceives… Love with different interpretations! Can it really be that Simple…? Absolutely Yes!
1. What was… Said.
2. What one think they… Said.
3. What was really… Said.
4. What one… Heard.
5. What one thought they… Heard.
*** (1Corinthians 13:12-13) Now we see only a blurred reflection in a mirror, but then we will see face to face. Now what I know is incomplete, but then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.
(1Cor 13:13) Right now three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
*** (Luke 11:42) But woe to you, Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and pass over = judgment = and the love of God. = You ought to have done these, and not to leave the other undone.
Did you notice… in the above verse… “Luke 11:42”… that “Judgment” came before the “Love of God?” Why does God’s Judgment come before God’s Love? To each & every human… they cannot know the Love of God… till they know the Judgment of God on Christ… that has set them free from both the ‘Power & Penalty’ of… Sin/Sins… “Sin the Root; Sins are the Fruit!” Eve and Adam… disobeyed God and His Word! Hence life could not come… till there was First Judgment! They knew they are naked… and a covering was needed for their Rebellion.
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, = will have rivers of living water = flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now he said this about the Spirit, whom those who were believing in him were to receive. For the Spirit was not yet present, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
In these verses… as well as in many others… “Love is the Motivation”… of all of God’s workings with mankind, throughout all the ages and times. What people ‘fail to realize’; when they focus on the “Love of God”… it is only “One”… of God’s Attributes. That Love… “Agape”… can ‘only’ be produced in the “True or Real Believer”… by His Indwelling Holy Spirit! It is ‘NOT’… that human emotion we so glibly define as Love. It is not that ‘warm feeling’ that we have one for another. It is that “Divine Love”… that flows… ‘only’ from God through us. It cannot be Faked or Imitated….!
*** (1Corinthians 15:19-to-22) If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
(1Cor 15:20) But now Christ has risen from the dead, and has become the first fruit of those who slept.
(1Cor 15:21) For since death is through man, the resurrection of the dead also is through a Man.
(1Cor 15:22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all will be made alive.
*** (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.
Don’t ‘you’ believe… GOD and His Holy Word…? That is the only reason why there is so very much ‘division and confusion’… in the Christian community. The NT was written in the Greek language, which agrees in person, number and gender. Some of the English translations are good and others are purposely wrong… to dilute the Truth from God! When you discuss your Beliefs… do you validate them with the “Complete Word of God?” Or do you just use your personal persuasion beliefs and Church biases…? …“Religiosity!”
*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear. But let not God speak with us, lest we die.
(Exodus 20:20) And Moses said to the people, Do not fear, for God has come to test you, and so that His fear may be before your faces, so that you may not sin.
You may be like… those that Moses had to deal with. They were willing to hear Moses or someone else… But Did Not Want To = “Hear GOD?” Yes… it is that “Simple!” Of course, having free will… you will choose what you want to Do, Believe and Share. But what you may not want to hear… is that God will have the Final Word… on All Topics and on All Subjects!
*** (John 12:48-49-50) 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 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.
*** (John 15:9-10-11) As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you; continue in My love.
(John 15:10) If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
(John 15:11) I have spoken these things to you so that My joy might remain in you and your joy might be full.
*** (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]
"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?
