“Christians & the ‘Mark of the Beast’ – 101”…Blog.
The ‘Picture’… with this blog; is the new “Bar Code”… that has replaced the UPC bar code. It can be ‘encoded’ with a plethora… of data; unlike the old bar code.
*** (2Thessalonians 2:11) For this reason, God will send them a powerful ‘delusion’ so that they will ‘believe’ the LIE.
*** (1Ki 22:21-22) And there came forth ‘a spirit’ and stood before Jehovah and said, I will entice him.
(1Ki 22:22) And Jehovah said to him, With what? And he said, I will go forth and will be a Lying spirit in the mouth of all his [false] prophets. And He said, you shall entice him and succeed also. Go forth and do so.
It amazes me… that so very many are ‘interested’ in Bible Prophecy; and yet know ‘Nothing!’ Those “Left Behind” books and videos are a LIE; and yet most who say they are Christians; did not know that! Why…? Simply because, they ‘do not’ know their Bible; and what it teaches! They have listened to Preachers & Teachers; without ‘knowing’; the Bible for themselves. In reality… it gets down to the FACTS: Who do you believe… Christ Jesus & His Holy Word… or someone else…?
*** (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.
*** (John 6:37) All that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus] = shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will in no way cast out.
“NONE = Left Behind – 101”…Blog [1/2]
Such “Foolishness & Ignorance”… of the “Scriptures”… has led some to believe; that the Christians; will also go through the “Great Tribulation”. These same ones; cannot defend their faith… with their Bibles. They seem to follow so many different ‘Preachers & Teachers’… that they ‘cannot’ even explain to YOU: What they believe and Why…? Yet they seem, to flock to those same people; every time there is an Earthquake; or Trouble in the Middle East. Yet… they themselves; cannot even defend ‘What’ they believe, with the Scriptures.
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) 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 message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
*** (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.
(2Pe 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.
“FALSE” - End of the World Predictions – 101 Blog
How about You…? Where do you stand, in your knowledge of “Your Bible?” Do you open your Bible… “Before”… you turn on your computer; phone; or even before you even leave for work…? Have you ‘planed’ your day… to meet with Christ Jesus… in His Holy Word; before the “Press of Life”… spends ‘All your Time’…? Do you give Him your best; or just the leftovers…? Surely you won’t eat “Left–Overs”… three days in a row…? But do you give the ‘leftovers’ of your time to Him…?
*** (John 15:3) Now you are clean through the Word which I [Jesus] have spoken to you.
*** (2Corinthians 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed day by day.
*** (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.
(2Ti 2:16) But shun profane, vain babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
*** (John 17:17-18-19) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
(Joh 17:18) As You [God] have sent Me [Jesus] into the world, = even so I have sent them into the world.
(Joh 17:19) And I sanctify Myself for their sakes, = so that they ‘also’ might be sanctified in Truth.
About now… you may see where this is going! No I am not ‘condemning’ anyone; nor am I ‘excusing’ anyone; not even myself. Part of our life in Christ… is living up to the ‘expectations’… “HE” has for us! So that He may use us… to share with “The ‘Others’–John 10:16”… what He wants us to! The NT calls those that are “HIS”; that have been Born Again… by God’s Holy Spirit; Children of God! We are His workmanship; to be used for the work of His Kingdom. He has also called us… “Soldiers!” Yea and Servants… of the Most High God!
*** (Romans 8:15-16-17) For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba, Father!
(Rom 8:16) The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.
(Rom 8:17) And if we are children, then we are heirs; heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ; so that if we suffer with Him, we may also be glorified together.
*** (Ephesians 2:10) For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
*** (Titus 3:5) not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) Therefore ‘endure’ hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
(2Tim 2:4) No one who wars ‘tangles’ with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him [Jesus] Who chose him to be a soldier.
(2Tim 2:5) And also if anyone competes, he is not crowned ‘unless’ he competes ‘lawfully’.
How about it…? Are you a Soldier for Christ; as Servant of Christ; a Worker for Christ…? Or are you just; ‘Sitting on the Premises’ and ‘Waiting for the Promises…? Surely you are not letting someone else… do “All His Work”…? Surely you have been redeemed; for “What Purpose?” To post You Tube videos with Songs & Sermons; not knowing “IF” they ‘are or not’… the “Valid Truth of Scripture”…? Remember Satan comes as an “Angel of Light–2Corinthians 11:14”… and ‘All’ his workers… “Into the Church”… and within the Body of Christ! He has the world; blinded already… and does not worry about them. His only ‘concern & worry’… is those “Who are Christ’s Solders!” Simply to keep them as… “Babies and Ineffective”… as Christ’s Soldiers!
*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation, beloved, I had need to ‘write’ to you to ‘exhort’ you to ‘contend earnestly’ for the faith once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For certain men ‘crept in secretly’, those having been of old previously written into this condemnation, ungodly ones perverting the grace of our God for unbridled lust, and denying the only Master, God, even our Lord Jesus Christ.
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also false prophets among the people, ‘even as’ there will be ‘false teachers’ among you, who ‘secretly’ will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pe 2:2) And ‘many’ will follow their pernicious ways, and ‘because’ of them the way of Truth will be evil spoken of.
“God Talk – ‘Church-E-Antity’ – ‘Christian–Eze’ 101” …Blog.
Where do ‘You’… go from Here…? “Dedicate” some time, preferably at the start of your day; to meet with Christ Jesus in His Holy Word. “Discipline” yourself; to not turn on your TV or Computer; “Till” you have met with Him… In His Holy Word! How about those social plans and obligations you have made. Do they come before ‘Your Time’ with Christ Jesus…? It is up to You… to not only exercise your ‘Free Will’… but to do it for… Christ and His Kingdom…!
*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
*** (Jeremiah 12:5) If you have run with footmen, and they wore you out, then how can you compete with horses? And if you feel secure in the land of peace, then how will you do in the swelling of the Jordan?

*** (1Corinthians 9:27) No, I keep on beating my body and making it my slave so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not somehow be disqualified.
