“Give them A ‘Warning’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you = shall speak = ‘My Words’ to them, = whether they will ‘hear’ = or = whether they will ‘forbear’, = for they are ‘rebellious’.
*** (2Timothy 4:3) For the time will come = when people = will ‘not’ put up with = healthy doctrine [teaching] = but with ‘itching’ ears = will surround themselves with teachers = who cater to their own needs.
(2Tim 4:4) They will refuse to listen = to the truth = and = will turn to myths [fables].
*** (1John 2:21) I have not written to you = because = you ‘do not’ know the Truth, = but ‘because’ you do know it = and ‘because’ = No Lie = comes from The Truth.
Have you ever… lost a friend or had someone get angry with you; because You, shared a Bible Verse…? So very strange… among those who Call; The Blessed Name of Christ Jesus… and say they Love Him! No one… “Truly Born Again”… by the Holy Spirit of God… can be ‘offended’ by The Word! Most who are… are ‘not’ really… “True Christians!” Their idea of Christianity is simply being marginally good and knowing the “God Talk!” Christian Jargon… seems to be their ‘Preference’ and their lifestyle!
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) "Not everyone who keeps saying to Me [Jesus], = 'Lord, = Lord,' = will get into the kingdom of heaven, = but ‘only’ the person who keeps doing = the will [Word] of my Father in heaven.
(Mat 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me [Jesus] = on that [Last] day, = 'Lord, = Lord, = we prophesied in Your name, = drove out demons in Your name, = and = performed ‘many’ miracles in Your name, didn't we?'
(Mat 7:23) Then I will ‘tell’ them plainly, = 'I [Jesus] never knew you. = Get away from Me, = you who practice Lawlessness!'"
“Conviction or Preference – 101”…Blog.
Those ‘Words’ [Matt 7:21-22-23] from Christ Jesus… were directed at “All” through all history; who had ‘only’ a head knowledge of Him. Never, did they ‘submit’ themselves to His Lordship! Today ‘many’ call America a Christian nation; “That is Wrong!” Only people can be “Born Again”… ‘Not’ nations! Do you really believe a Christian Nation, would ‘allow’ over… “55,000,000–million Innocent Babies” to be “Killed by Abortion”… and then “Keep Silent”…? How can “Real Christians”… keep silent… on such an Issue…?
*** (Exodus 20:13) You ‘shall not’ = murder = innocent life.
*** (Genesis 4:10) And He [God] said, = What have you done? = The voice = of your brother's blood = cries out to Me [God] = from the ground.
*** (Revelation 21:8) But the fearful, = and the unbelieving, = and the abominable, = and murderers, = and sexually immoral, = and sorcerers, = and idolaters, = and “All Liars”, = will have their part = in the Lake burning with fire and brimstone, = which is the second death.
Does God give us a “Warning”…? But of course He does! Are we to “Warn Each Other?” Throughout the OT… “Over & over & over again”… God sent His Prophets, men of God and others… “To Warn”… His chosen People! Time & time & time again… they refused to ‘Listen!’ Is it any different today… for ‘God’s People’… in the NT Era of His Church; the Bride of Christ…? Absolutely Not…! Simply turn to the Book of Revelation and look at the ‘conditions’ of those ‘Seven Churches!’ They would ‘not heed’, the Corrections of the Holy Spirit…!
*** (Ezekiel 3:18-to-21) When I [The Lord] = say to the wicked, = You shall surely die; = and you = ‘do not’ give him = warning, = nor speak ‘to warn’ the wicked = from his wicked way, = to save his life; = the same wicked one shall die in his iniquity; = but I [God] = will require his blood at your hand.
(Eze 3:19) Yet “IF” you ‘warn’ the wicked, = and = he does ‘not’ turn from his wickedness = nor = from his wicked way, = he shall die in his iniquity; = but you have ‘delivered’ your soul.
(Eze 3:20) And = when the ‘righteous’ = turns from his righteousness = and = commits iniquity, = and when I [God] = lay a stumbling block before him, = he shall die. = Because = you have ‘not’ given him warning, = he shall die in his sin, = and his righteousness which he has done = shall not be remembered; = but his blood I will require at your hand.
(Eze 3:21) But “IF” = you ‘warn’ the righteous = so that the righteous does ‘not’ sin, = and = ‘if’ he does not sin, = he shall surely live = ‘because’ he is warned; = also you have ‘delivered’ your soul.
*** (Ezekiel 33:11) ‘Say’ to them: = As I live, = says the Lord Jehovah, = I have no delight in the death of the wicked, = except in the turning of the wicked from his way, = and so to live. = Turn [Repent], = turn from your evil ways; = for why will you die, O house of Israel?
*** (2Peter 3:9) The Lord is not slow = concerning His ‘promise’, = as some count slowness, = but is long-suffering toward us, = not purposing [willing] that ‘any’ should perish, = but that ‘all’ should come = to repentance.
Repentance – 101 Blog [1/6]
“Tell ‘Them’… ANYWAY”…! Most are ‘Not’ willing to lose friends; over Truth! They are ‘not’ really concerned about the ‘Spiritual Condition’… of others. Why then… are there so ‘very many immature’… “Can’t we all just get Along” types… who call themselves “Christians?” When was the last time you read… “1& 2 Corinthians?” Rampant sexuality, drunkenness, defrauding each other, pretend spirituality and the list goes “on & on!” “True Christian Love”… for the ‘Saint’ & the ‘Sinner’… warns them! They were lacking… as they were ‘content’ in themselves and in their Sin!
*** (Galatians 6:1-2) Brothers, = if a person is caught doing something wrong, = those of you who are spiritual = should restore that person = in a spirit of gentleness. = Watch out for yourself = so that you are = ‘not’ tempted as well.
(Gal 6:2) Practice carrying each other's burdens. = In this way = you will fulfill the law of Christ.
*** (Matthew 18:15-16-17) "If your brother sins against you, = go and confront him = while the two of you are alone. = If he listens to you, = you have won back your brother.
(Matt 18:16) But if he doesn't listen, = take one or two others with you = so that 'every word may be confirmed = by the testimony of two or three witnesses.'
(Matt 18:17) If, however, = he ignores them, = tell it to the congregation [Church]. = If he also ignores the congregation, = regard him as a gentile and a tax collector.
*** (1Corinthians 5:3-4-5) Even though I [Paul] am away from you physically, = I am with you in spirit. = I have already passed judgment = on the man who did this, = as though I were present with you.
(1Cor 5:4) When you are gathered together = in the name of our Lord Jesus = and my spirit and the power of our Lord Jesus are present,
(1Cor 5:5) hand this man over to Satan = for the destruction of his flesh, = so that his spirit may be saved = on the Day of the Lord.
(1Cor 5:6) Your boasting is not good. = You know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough [Church], don't you?
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) Think of our Lord's patience = as salvation, = just as our dear brother Paul also wrote to you = according to the wisdom given him.
(2Pet 3:16) He speaks about this subject = in all his letters. = Some ‘things’ in them = are hard to understand, = which ‘ignorant’ and ‘unstable’ people = ‘distort’ to their own destruction, = as they do = the rest of the Scriptures.
*** (1Corinthians 11:30) That's why so many of you = are weak = and sick = and a ‘considerable’ number are dying.
“Tough Love – 101”…Blog.http://truth459.blogspot.com/2010/08/tough-love-101blog.html
“Tough Love”… is what Christ has for “US”… and for His Body, His Church, His Bride! Yes, it is hard to confront each other… “But what is the ‘other’ option?” Sorry, there is “None!” Perhaps you do not spend time in His Holy Word… “Daily?” Perhaps other things have replaced your Love for Jesus and for His Holy Word…? Perhaps… it is time for You… to Grow Up = In Christ?
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why = we are not discouraged. = No, even though our ‘outer’ man is = wearing out, = our ‘inner’ man = is being ‘renewed’ = day by day.
*** (Hebrews 5:11) We have much to say about this, = but it is difficult to explain = because = you have become too lazy = to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, = though by now = you should be teachers, = you still need someone = to teach you the ‘basic truths’ = of God's Word. = You have ‘become’ people = who need milk = instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk = is still a baby = and = is inexperienced in the Word of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food = is for mature people, = whose minds are trained by practice = to discern = good from evil.
Love in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 33:3.
