“In a ‘Relationship’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 6:18-19-20) Keep on ‘running’ away from sexual immorality. Any ‘other’ sin that a person commits is ‘outside’ his body, but the person who ‘sins sexually’; sins against his own body.
(1Cor 6:19) You know that your body is a ‘sanctuary’ of the Holy Spirit; Who is in you, Whom you have ‘received’ from God, don't you? You ‘do not’ belong to yourselves, [Romans 8:9]
(1Cor 6:20) ‘Because’ you were bought for a price. Therefore, glorify God ‘with’ your bodies.
*** (Luke 6:46) "Why do you keep calling Me [Jesus] = 'Lord, = Lord,' = but don't do what I [Jesus] tell you?
What does that ‘Term’ mean…? On Face Book and many of the international social sites, it has several meanings. Usually it is one of the choices of marital status… Single, Married or In a Relationship. It shows a ‘partial’ commitment; ‘Until’ something or someone “Better” comes along. America has long ceased, in upholding the “Biblical standard of Virginity!” A visit to the “CDC” site viewing the thousands of STD’S = Sexually Transmitted Diseases; leaves one shocked, or maybe not?
*** (1Corinthians 7:1-2) Now concerning the things you wrote about: It's good for a man not to fondle a woman.
(1Cor 7:2) But because sexual immorality is so ‘rampant’, every man should have his ‘own’ wife, and every woman should have her ‘own’ husband.
*** (Hebrews 13:4) Let marriage be kept ‘honorable’ in every way, and the marriage bed undefiled. For God ‘will judge’, those who commit sexual sins, ‘especially’ those who commit adultery.
*** (1Corinthians 6:9-10-11) You know that wicked people ‘will not’ inherit the kingdom of God, don't you? Stop ‘deceiving’ yourselves! Sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,
(1Cor 6:10) thieves, greedy people, drunks, slanderers, and robbers ‘will not’ inherit the kingdom of God.
(1Cor 6:11) That is what ‘some of you’ were! But you were ‘washed’, you were ‘sanctified’, you were ‘justified’ in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
“Respect – For ‘WOMEN’? – 101” …Blog.
How about those… “Affairs of the Heart?” Many who would ‘not’ have “Physical Adultery” with ‘Another’… Will have an “Emotional One” = ‘On Line!’ They speak and share and may even joke around and tease one another…‘Sexually – Verbally!” Such a relationship with their… “Actual Mate” they are Married to; has long since past! But “On Line”… “Who but God”… knows what is going on ‘In’ their “Hearts & Minds?” Perhaps they have developed a… “Fantasy Relationship” with that… “On Line Friend?”
*** (Matthew 12:36-37) But I say to you that every ‘idle word’, whatever men may speak, they shall ‘give account’ of it in the Day of Judgment.
(Matt 12:37) For by your ‘words’ you shall be justified, and by your ‘words’ you shall be condemned.
*** (James 5:12) Above all, brothers, do not swear oaths by heaven, by earth, or by any other object. Instead, let your "Yes" mean yes and your "No" mean no, lest you fall under condemnation.
*** (Hebrews 4:12) For the Word of God is ‘living’ and ‘powerful’ and ‘sharper’ than any two-edged sword, ‘piercing’ even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a ‘discerner’ of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
(Heb 4:13) ‘Neither’ is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things are ‘naked and opened’ to the eyes of Him [God] with Whom we have to do.
Perhaps about now… you are ‘questioning’ yourself about your “On Line Relationship?” Or even more to the heart of the matter: the person you have deemed… “In A Relationship With?” Today, both “Men & Women” will often look for a… “Friends ‘with’ Benefits Relationship!” Because so very many have made “Bad Choices” about Sexual Purity… they carry ‘baggage’ into the “Next New Relationship!” These wrong actions are ‘repeated’ over and over and over again. Instead of “Sexual Purity” before and during a “Relationship”… they satisfy the ‘baser needs’ of their flesh… much ‘like’ barnyard animals. The Life Long Commitment of Marriage… has long ‘passed’ off the scene. They settle for the ‘Least’… “Non–Commitment!”… with ‘Sexual Benefits’.
*** (1Corinthians 6:15-16-17) You know that your bodies are parts of Christ, don't you? Should I take the parts of Christ and make them parts of a prostitute? God Forbid!
(1Cor 6:16) You know that the person who ‘unites’ himself with a prostitute ‘becomes’ one body with her, don't you? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."
(1Cor 6:17) But the person who ‘unites’ himself with the Lord ‘becomes’ one spirit with Him.
*** (1Corinthians 5:9-to-13) I wrote to you in my letter to ‘stop associating’ with people who are sexually immoral-
(1Cor 5:10) not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or greedy people, robbers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world.
(1Cor 5:11) But now I am writing to you to ‘stop associating’ with any ‘so-called’ brother if he is sexually immoral, greedy, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunk, or a robber. With such a person you must even stop eating.
(1Cor 5:12) After all, is it my business to judge outsiders? You are to judge those who are inside, aren't you?
(1Cor 5:13) God will judge outsiders. "Put that wicked man away from you."
Why do I say such ‘Things’…? What kind of friend would I be with you; If I did not share the “Tough Love” that God has for His… in His plan for ‘your’ Life? God, the God of the Bible is not standing around to come down on you. He has provided a simple plan; “What you Sow”… “You shall Reap!” It is the ‘same’ for ‘all’ mankind. You are important to Him; but He will not ‘force’ you to Love Him! You response has to be towards His… “First Love for You!”
*** (1John 4:19) We love Him [God] because He first loved us.
*** (Galatians 6:7-8-9) Do not be ‘deceived’, God is ‘not’ mocked. For whatever a man sows, ‘that’ he also will reap.
(Gal 6:8) For he sowing to his flesh ‘will reap’ corruption from the flesh. But he sowing to the Spirit ‘will reap’ life everlasting from the Spirit.
(Gal 6:9) But we ‘should not’ lose heart in well-doing, for in ‘due season’ we shall reap, ‘if’ we do not faint [quit].
*** (1Timothy 5:24-25) Some men's sins are open ‘beforehand’, going before to judgment. And some they also ‘follow after’.
(1Tim 5:25) Likewise ‘also’ the good works of some are manifest beforehand, and those who are otherwise ‘cannot’ be hidden.
*** (Psalms 106:15) And He gave [aloud] them what they asked, ‘but’ sent leanness into their soul.
So where does ‘ONE’… go from “Here?” You may choose to continue your… “In A Relationship?” Or You may choose to change your “Mind & Actions!” No one can force you to do anything; it will always be your “Choice”… what kind of a ‘Relationship’… “You will settle For!” Remember “IF” you do things… “God’s Way”… “THEN”… He always has His ‘best’ for You…!
*** (Luke 13:3-4-5) I tell you, No. But unless you ‘repent’, you will ‘all’ likewise perish.
(Luke 13:4) Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, ‘do you think’ that they were sinners above all men who lived in Jerusalem?
(Luke 13:5) I tell you, ‘No’. But unless you ‘repent’, you will ‘all’ likewise perish.

*** (1Corinthians 6:9-10-11) Do you not know that the unrighteous ‘shall not’ inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals,
(1Co 6:10) nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(1Co 6:11) And ‘such’ were some of you. But you are ‘washed’, but you are ‘sanctified’, but you are ‘justified’ in the name of the Lord Jesus, ‘and’ by the Spirit of our God.
*** (2Corinthians 5:17-to-21) So that if ‘anyone’ is in Christ, that one is a new creature; old things have ‘passed away’; behold, ‘all’ things have become new.
(2Co 5:18) And all things are of God, who has ‘reconciled’ us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ‘ministry of reconciliation’;
(2Co 5:19) whereas God was in Christ ‘reconciling’ the world to Himself, ‘not’ imputing their trespasses to them, and putting the word of reconciliation in us.
(2Co 5:20) Then we are ‘ambassadors’ on behalf of Christ, as God ‘exhorting’ through us, we ‘beseech’ you on behalf of Christ, be ‘reconciled’ to God.
(2Co 5:21) For He [God] has made Him [Jesus] Who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might ‘become’ the righteousness of God in Him.
*** (Joel 2:25-26) And I will ‘restore’ to you the years which the swarming locust has eaten, the locust larvae, and the stripping locust, and the cutting locust, My great army which I sent among you.
(Joe 2:26) And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of Jehovah your God, who has dealt with you wonderfully; and My people shall never be ashamed.
Love, in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
