“Don’t Believe Me – 201”…Blog. [2/2]
*** (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.
… “Knowing ‘About’ GOD”… is “NOT” the same thing as… “Knowing God!”
How well do you know… ‘Your Bible?’ How long have you been “Born Again”; by the Holy Spirit of God? Perhaps, you have ‘never’ been; “Truly Born Again?” ‘No’, I did not ask you “IF” you were a Christian. “MANY” say they are, and yet Christ Jesus said Himself… in His Holy Word… that the “MANY” were not! “Christ Jesus” did ‘not’ say Few… or Some… but “MANY!” Just perhaps… that is why ‘YOU’ are willing to believe: “Anyone”… that speaks about “God”…?
*** (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 [Word] = of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me [Jesus] = 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!
Those that ‘Know Jesus’… and Love Him… Also ‘Love’–“His Holy Word!” Their faith grows as they learn more and more of Him; through His Word. Those that ‘do not’… know and study His Word… probably don’t ‘really’ know Him! About now, someone is thinking, “Just who do you think you are… to question my Faith in God” “Many” side step the issue of Jesus being God. ‘Never’ once… did ‘anyone’ ever say… “How dare do you question my faith in Jesus?” They side step the issue of “Christ Jesus”… by saying ‘God’… as a generic term.
*** (Philippians 2:9-10-11) Therefore God = has ‘highly exalted’ = Him [Jesus], = and has given Him a name = which is above every name,
(Philip 2:10) that at the name of Jesus = every knee should bow, = of heavenly ones, = and of earthly ones, = and of ones under the earth;
(Philip 2:11) and that = every tongue should confess = that Jesus Christ is Lord, = to the glory of God the Father.
Can you ‘listen’ to a Bible Teacher… and tell if “He or She”… is a ‘False Teacher’ or “Not?” Many cannot…! How then would of know… ‘If’ you were hearing “The Truth” or “Not?” There are ‘More False Teachers’… than there are “Real Ones!” And just how… does one determine that? By simply “Testing ALL”… with the Holy Word of God! “Christ Jesus” said it would be like in the ‘Days of Noah’… before His return. Just what was it like… in the ‘Days of Noah?’
*** (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.
*** (Genesis 6:5) And Jehovah = saw that the wickedness of man = was great in the earth, = and every imagination = of the thoughts of his heart = was ‘only’ evil = continually.
Have you ever caught ‘Hell’… for posting Bible verses, somewhere? I have lost ‘Christian’ friends; on several different Social Sites… including ‘Face Book’. You will know “IF” someone; “Really Loves Jesus”… when they are willing to Accept = His Holy Word! Those that “Do Not” really ‘know’ Him… “Do Not”… like His Word. Did you know the Bible even says that…? “Many” say they are Christians and have… “Never”… read through His Word, completely! They would rather… watch a TV program or a Video… rather than ‘discipline’ themselves to “Read & Study”… “His Holy Word!” They simply take a ‘Pick & Choose’ approach… to the 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?
*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) Study earnestly = to present yourself = approved to God, = a workman that does not need = to be ashamed, = rightly dividing = the Word of Truth.
(2Tim 2:16) But shun profane, = vain babblings, = for they will increase = to more ungodliness.
*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) and that from a child = you have known = the Holy Scriptures, = which are able to make you wise = to salvation = through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Ti 3:16) All Scripture = is God-breathed, = and is profitable for doctrine, = for reproof, = for correction, = for instruction in righteousness,
(2Ti 3:17) that the man of God = may be perfected, = thoroughly furnished = to every good work.
*** (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.
Did you ever know ‘someone’… who claimed to be a ‘Christian’… and then some time later… “Left It?” Or did you ever know ‘someone’ who claimed… that “One”; could Lose their Salvation? You may be ‘sure’ about that person… by how they ‘Treat’ the Holy Word of God. If they are Truly Born Again… the indwelling Holy Spirit… makes the Word… Alive to their Hearts, Mind and Souls! They feed themselves… with the Word. They often say that they cannot get enough of it. That is that… “First Love”… which the Bible speaks about… “Revelation 2:4-5”
*** (1Corinthians 2:10-to-16) But God = has revealed them to us = by His Spirit; = for the Spirit searches all things, = yea, the deep things of God.
(1Cor 2:11) For who among men = knows the things of a man = except the spirit of man within him? = So also no one knows = the things of God = except the Spirit of God.
(1Cor 2:12) 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 has known = the mind of the Lord, = that he may instruct Him? = But we have the mind of Christ.
*** (Ephesians 1:11-to-14) in Whom [Christ] also = we have been chosen = to an inheritance, = being predestinated = according to the purpose of Him = Who works all things = according to the counsel = of His own will,
(Eph 1:12) for us to be = to the praise of His glory, = who previously = had trusted in Christ;
(Eph 1:13) in whom also you, = hearing the Word of Truth, = the gospel of our salvation, = in whom also believing, = you were sealed = with the Holy Spirit of promise,
(Eph 1:14) Who is the earnest = of our inheritance, = to the redemption [of our risen bodies] = of the purchased possession [by the Precious Blood of Jesus], = to the praise of His [Jesus] glory.
Do you… ‘Pick & Choose’… what you want to hear or learn from the Bible? Do you put away all those verses that speak about “Judgment & Damnation?” Do you think that anyone… will ever escape the “Total Judgment” of God; the God of the Bible…? Do you think of God as a ‘Santa Clause’; Who is here to serve your every desire? Have your ears been ‘Tickled’… by such “Preaching & Teaching?” If you do… then you surely ‘do not’ know… the God of the Bible! And that is why… You do NOT check out for yourself… By the Word… “What you are being taught!”
*** (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.
*** (Ecclesiastes 8:11) Because sentence = against an evil work = is ‘not executed’ speedily, = therefore = the heart of the sons of men = is ‘fully’ set = in them = to do evil.
*** (Habakkuk 1:4) Therefore the law = has become helpless, = and justice = does ‘not’ always go forth. = For the wicked ‘entraps’ the righteous; = therefore justice goes forth, = being ‘perverted’.
*** (Isaiah 24:2) And as it is = with the people, = so it shall be with the priest; [Pastor] = 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.
You are ‘not’ responsible… for what I believe; ‘nor’ am I responsible for what you believe! Each of us is ‘responsible’ before God; as it is to “HIM”… that we will give an account! All I am trying to do… is to get you to… “Read, Study and Know = what God says in His Holy Word!” The world and those of “PC–Political Correct”… will even ‘Distort’… the message of the Gospel. Have you ever seen a Church Sign that said… “Full Gospel?” What they are saying… is that “Everyone Else”… does ‘not’ give you the ‘Full Gospel’… but only part! Be warned of such False Teachings!
*** (1Peter 3:12) For the eyes of the Lord = are on the righteous, = and His ears = are attentive to their prayer. = But the face of the Lord = is ‘against’ those = who do evil."
*** (Matthew 15:13-14) But He [Jesus] answered and said, = Every plant ‘which’ My heavenly Father [God] = has ‘not’ planted = shall be rooted up.
(Matt 15:14) Let them alone. = They are blind leaders = of the blind. = And if the blind = lead the blind, = both shall fall into the ditch.
*** (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!
*** (Matthew 12:30) The one = who is ‘not’ with Me [Jesus] = is against Me, = and the one who does ‘not’ gather = with Me = scatters.
*** (John 12:47-to-50) And if = any one = hears My Words = and does ‘not’ believe, = I [Jesus] do not judge him [now], = for I do not come [this time] = to judge the world, = but to save the world.
(John 12:48) He who rejects = Me [Jesus] = 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 [Jesus] = 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.
…“Knowing ‘About’ GOD”… is “NOT” the same thing as… “Knowing God!”
Just perhaps… it is time; to get into the Word of God. May I suggest a ‘study’ Bible for you? How about a ‘trusted source’ for good Bible teaching and preaching. Pastor John of “Grace to You”… has been teaching from the Bible for over 40-years. They have for “FREE”… their library opened… so that you may listen and even download MP 3 files of all their messages. You may trust these teachings. “One Warning”… “IF” = you ‘Do Not’… hold to the “Bible’s Complete Authority”… for those “Truly Born Again”… by “God’s Holy Spirit” = “THEN” = You will ‘not’ like this teaching!” IF you do… Then this is the ‘source’ for You!
Thanks, In Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 33:3.
