“Think ‘Outside’ the Box – 101” …Blog.
*** (Proverbs 9:9-10) Give to a wise one, = and he will be still wiser; = teach a just one, = and he will increase in learning.
(Pro 9:10) The fear of Jehovah = is the beginning of wisdom; = and = the knowledge of the Holy = is understanding.
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; = get wisdom; = and = with all your getting = get understanding.
People are ‘Funny’…! Has anyone ever asked you a question, and you then; gave them a direct answer. How did they respond…? It is my belief… that most ask out of pride and not out of ‘really’ wanting an Answer! They ask… in order that you “Agree” with them; and thus they “Validate” what they believe! Somehow they “Cannot or Will Not”… think outside the Box! Someone one once said… ‘Don’t confuse me with the Facts!’ But, isn’t that what you asked ‘For?’
*** (Isaiah 56:10-11) His watchmen are blind; = they are ‘all’ ignorant; = they are ‘all’ dumb dogs who cannot bark, = dreaming, = lying down, = loving to slumber.
(Isa 56:11) Yea, they are greedy dogs = which can never have enough; = and = they are shepherds = who cannot understand. = They ‘all’ look to their own way, = every one for his gain, = to his own end.
*** (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.
Validation – 202 Blog.
How about You…? Are you asking questions and making statements… to gain “Wisdom & Knowledge & Understanding”…? One late night… I turned on the TV only to find a ‘parody’ about Face Book. Each member was seeing ‘who’; could get the ‘most’ fiends? FB finally was in a battle for supremacy ‘over’ the human user! Perhaps there was more ‘Truth’ there… than they let on to! Who really cares…? I hope you are not a… ‘Head Hunter’… to see who; gets the most friends? …LOL! …LOL!
*** (Proverbs 26:4-5) Do not answer a fool = according to his foolishness, = lest you also be like him.
(Pro 26:5) Answer a fool = according to his foolishness, = so that he = may ‘not’ be wise in his own eyes.

*** (Titus 3:10) A man = that is a ‘heretic’ = after the = first and second admonition = reject;

Answering Blind FAITH - 101
Sometimes it is ‘Expedient’… to give an answer; to share the Truth of God’s Holy Word! Sometimes it is ‘Prudent’… “Not To!” That is what those above; Scripture verses mean. How then do I know… when ‘to’ answer and when ‘not’ to answer? Perhaps it is all in the ‘question’ itself and how it is worded? Some ask questions to “Mock”… ‘The Holy Word of God’. Some ask just to see their name or avatar on the Internet! Discernment is needed in my and your responses to their questions!
*** (James 1:5-6-7) Now if any of you lacks wisdom, = he should ask God, = Who gives to everyone generously = without a rebuke, = and = it will be given to him.
(Jas 1:6) But he must ask in faith, = without any doubts, = for the one who has doubts = is like a wave of the sea that is driven = and tossed by the wind.
(Jas 1:7) Such a person = should ‘not’ expect = to receive ‘anything’ = from the Lord.
*** (1Peter 3:12-to-17) For the eyes of the Lord = are on the righteous, = and His ears = open to their prayers. = But the Lord's face = is ‘against’ those = who ‘do’ evil.
(1Pet 3:13) And who is the one = who will harm you = if you become reflections of the good?
(1Pet 3:14) But if you = also suffer for righteousness' sake, = you are blessed. = And do not fear their fear, = nor be troubled,
(1Pet 3:15) but ‘sanctify’ the Lord God = in your ‘hearts’, = and be ready ‘always’ = to give an answer to everyone = who asks you a ‘reason’ = of the hope in you, = with meekness and fear;
(1Pet 3:16) having a good conscience, = that while they speak against you as evildoers = they ‘may’ be shamed, = those ‘falsely’ accusing = your good behavior in Christ.
(1Pet 3:17) For it is better, if the will of God wills it, to suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing.
“Give them A ‘Warning’ – 101” …Blog. (my)
About now… If you have been… “Thinking Outside the Box”… then you can see where this is going! Many voted for “Change”… in the last presidential election; “Only to Get ‘Short’ Changed!” Often people will want ‘Change’; without asking the ‘critical’ question: “Change to What?” So too… we must keep bringing our “Minds & Hearts”… back to the principles of life… found in the Holy Word of God…! Do you look… for a principle to live by… in His Word; when the “Pressures of Life”… ‘Press’ you for one?
*** (Luke 4:4) Jesus answered him, = “It is written”, = “One must ‘not’ live on bread alone, = but on ‘every’ Word of God.”
*** (Acts 5:29) But Peter and the apostles = answered, = “We must obey God rather than men”
*** (Psalms 19:7-to-11) The Law of Jehovah is perfect, = converting the soul; = the testimony of Jehovah is sure, = making the simple wise.
(Psa 19:8) The Precepts of Jehovah = are right, = rejoicing the heart; = the Commandments of Jehovah are pure, = giving light to the eyes.
(Psa 19:9) The fear of Jehovah = is clean, = enduring forever; = the judgments of Jehovah = are true and righteous altogether,
(Psa 19:10) more to be desired than gold, = even much fine gold; = sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
(Psa 19:11) And Your servant = is ‘warned’ by them; = in ‘keeping’ them = there is great reward.
“By Application – 201” …Blog.
May I share…? For a number of years, since being Born Again by God’s Holy Spirit; it has been my practice as a ‘Free Will Offering’ = to give my ‘first’ hour of my day, to meet with Jesus in His Holy Word! Even when I was working ‘8-10-12–hour days’, I went to bed early; to meet with Him in the morning! He has blessed me; as He will bless you; when you make His Holy Word; your ‘mandate’ of your life!
*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, = rising up a ‘great’ while before day, = He [Jesus] went out, = and departed into a solitary place, = and there prayed [worshiped].
*** (1Samuel 2:30) And Jehovah, = the God of Israel says, = I said indeed, = Your [Eli] house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever. = But ‘now’ Jehovah says, = Be it ‘far’ from Me! = For those who honor Me = I will honor, = and = those that think ‘little’ of Me = shall be lightly regarded.
*** (John 15:3) Now ye are clean = through the Word = which I [Jesus] have spoken unto you.
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: = for the LORD = revealed Himself to Samuel = in Shiloh = ‘by’ = the Word of the LORD.
