“What are you ‘Protecting?’ -101”…Blog.
*** (Galatians 4:16) So then = did I become your enemy = speaking to you the Truth?
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord = as salvation = as our beloved brother Paul = also has written to you = according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in ‘all’ his letters, = speaking in them of ‘these’ things; = in which are ‘some’ things hard to be understood, = which the ‘unlearned’ and ‘unstable’ = ‘pervert’, = as ‘also’ they do = the ‘rest’ of the Scriptures, = to their ‘own’ destruction.
What Exactly… are you ‘Protecting’…? Is it what you Believe…? Is it your Church and what they Teach…? How about your Pastor or Denomination…? Could it even be what ‘YOU’– Think… you Believe…? Many are ‘Ignorant’…! Does that ‘Offend’… “You?” Ignorance = is simply being… ‘Uninformed!’ Most of the time… it is by “Choice!” Many spend more time knowing sports scores, fashion styles, Hollywood stars and the like ‘worldly’ information… and know “Very Little at All”… about God’s Holy Word, The Bible! Say it isn’t SO…?
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come, = says the Lord Jehovah, = that I will send a famine in the land; = not a famine of bread = nor a thirst for water, = but of hearing the Words of Jehovah.
*** (1Corinthians 14:38) But if any is ignorant, = let him be ignorant.
*** (Romans 10:3) For they, = being ignorant of God's righteousness = and = going about to establish their own righteousness, = have ‘not’ submitted themselves = to the righteousness of God.
(Rom 10:4) For Christ = is the end of the law for righteousness = for everyone who believes.
Are you on ‘Face Book’…? Many Christians post there… at least they; “Call themselves Christian!” Every October… I post my Halloween Blog there… and I have some of my Christian friends… ‘leave me’ as their friend! Go Figure…? They are ‘offended’ at what God’s Holy Word… says about their “Occult Practices”… as in Deuteronomy 17 and other ‘Bible Chapters’. How could someone… who says they… “Love JESUS” = then be offended; at the Living Holy Word of God…? Something is “Wrong”…!
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them = through Your Truth. = Your Word = is Truth.
*** (James 1:22) But become = Doers of the Word, = and = Not merely hearers only, = Deceiving your own selves.
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do you = call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord, = and ‘do not do’ = what I [Jesus] say?
*** (Matthew 5:48) Therefore be perfect, = even as your Father in Heaven = is perfect.
Christians and Halloween – 101 Blog.
“Harry Potter – 101” …Blog.
Many times… I see ‘Fortune Cookie’… and ‘Horoscope’–“POSTS”… on the FB pages of Christians who say they… ‘Love Jesus?’ How can that be…? Can they be serving “Two Masters”…? Yes, we do live in a world… where those who Truly Love Jesus… ‘Will’ begin to suffer for their stand for Him! If you are ‘not ready’ to pay that price… then perhaps your “Faith”; is not in the “Christ Jesus” of the Bible…? Perhaps you go to the “Church of Today”… pastored by the “Reverend Dr. Feelsgood”… Who ‘never’ speaks about Bible and Righteous and Living in Holiness? He never speaks about being… “Obedient to God’s Holy Word!”
*** (James 4:4) You Adulterers! = Don't you ‘know’ = that ‘friendship’ with the world = means ‘war’ with God? = So whoever = wants to be a ‘friend’ of this world = is an ‘enemy’ of God.
*** (1John 2:15) Stop loving the world = and = the things that are in the world. = If anyone ‘persists’ in loving the world, = the Father's love = is ‘not’ in him.
(1Jn 2:16) For everything that is in the world = the desire for fleshly gratification, = the desire for possessions, = and = worldly arrogance = is ‘not’ from the Father = but is ‘from’ the world.
(1Jn 2:17) And the world = and its desires = are fading away, = but the person who ‘does’ God's will [Word] = remains forever.
*** (Matthew 6:24) "No one can ‘serve’ = two masters. = For either he will ‘hate’ one = and ‘love’ the other, = or be ‘loyal’ to one = and ‘despise’ the other. = You ‘cannot’ serve God = and riches!"
“Conviction or Preference – 101”…Blog.
How would you feel… “IF”… your mate has someone on the Side? Especially ‘one’… that shared their ‘most’ intimate, inner self…? Would you feel… ‘Betrayed?’ Why do you ‘think’ that the Holy Spirit… writing the Scripture through James… used the word “Adulterers?” Is that a bold enough statement… about How God Feels… about His Children; loving the world… more than they do Him…? God could not have drawn; a more ‘intimate’ picture of betraying Him… for the ‘temporary’ fun of this world!
*** (Jeremiah 3:20) Surely as a wife = ‘treacherously departs’ = from her husband, = so you have dealt ‘treacherously’ with Me [The Lord], = O house of Israel, = says Jehovah.
*** (Hebrews 11:24-to-27) By faith Moses, = when he had grown up, = ‘refused’ to be called a son of Pharaoh's daughter,
(Heb 11:25) because he ‘preferred’ being mistreated = with God's people = ‘to enjoying’ = the ‘pleasures’ of sin = for a short time.
(Heb 11:26) He thought that being ‘insulted’ = for the sake of Christ = was of ‘greater value’ = than the treasures of Egypt, = because = he was ‘looking ahead’ = to his reward.
(Heb 11:27) By faith = he left Egypt, = ‘without’ being afraid of the king's anger, = and = he persevered ‘because’ = he saw the One = Who is invisible.
*** (Isaiah 55:8-9) For My thoughts = are ‘not’ your thoughts, = nor ‘your’ ways = My ways, says Jehovah.
(Isa 55:9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, = so are My ways = higher than your ways, = and My thoughts = than your thoughts.
*** (1Samuel 15:22) And Samuel said, = Does Jehovah [God] = delight in burnt offerings = and sacrifices = as in ‘obeying’ = the voice [Word] of Jehovah? = Behold, = to Obey = is ‘better’ than sacrifice! = To listen = is ‘better’ = than the fat of rams!
How about You…? Where do ‘You’; go from this point…? You ‘cannot’ lead someone “Spiritually”… any further than ‘You’… have come! Are ‘You’… about your ‘Father’s [God] Work’… or are you just ‘enjoying’ life… and ‘allowing’; others to do His Work…? Can you take the Holy Word of God… and discern ‘Truth’… God’s Truth from Error? Do you earnestly “Defend” the Holy Word of God… or are you just content with “Christian-Eze”… which is Not Gods’ Truth…? Have you shared the Word… in such a way… to encourage others; to know more about Him…?
*** (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!
*** (2Timothy 4:2-3-4) Preach the Word. = Be ready to do this whether or not = the time is convenient. = Refute, = warn, = and encourage = with the utmost patience when you teach.
(2Ti 4:3) For the time will come = when people will not put up = with healthy doctrine = but with itching ears = will surround themselves with teachers = who cater to their own needs.
(2Ti 4:4) They will ‘refuse’ = to listen to the Truth = and will turn to myths.
*** (Ephesians 5:9-10-11) For the fruit of the Spirit = consists of every form = of goodness, = righteousness, = and Truth.
(Eph 5:10) Proving = what pleases the Lord,
(Eph 5:11) and have ‘nothing’ to do = with the unfruitful works of darkness. = Instead, = ‘expose’ them = for what they are.
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Study ‘earnestly’ = to ‘present’ yourself = ‘approved’ to God, = a workman that does ‘not’ need = to be ashamed, = rightly dividing = the Word of Truth.
*** (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.
(2Tim 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed, = and = is profitable for Doctrine, = for Reproof, = for Correction, = for Instruction in righteousness,
(2Tim 3:17) that the man of God = may be ‘perfected’ [matured], = thoroughly furnished = to every good work.

*** (Luke 2:49) And He [Jesus] = said to them [his parents], = Why did you = look for Me? = Do you not know = that I ‘must’ be about = My [God] Father's business?
