“Ministering to ‘Youth & Children’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) From childhood you have ‘known’ the Holy Scriptures that are ‘able to’ give you the wisdom you need for salvation ‘through’ faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 3:16) ‘All Scripture’ is God-breathed and is useful for Teaching, for Reproof, for Correction, and for Training in righteousness,
(2Tim 3:17) so that the man of God may be ‘complete’ and ‘thoroughly equipped’ for every good work.
*** (Luke 2:46-47) And it happened that after three days they found Him [Jesus] in the temple, ‘sitting’ in the midst of the teachers, ‘both’ hearing them and questioning them.
(Luke 2:47) And ‘all’ who heard Him were ‘astonished’ at His ‘understanding’ and ‘answers’.
Recently I was… in a Bible book store looking at Bibles. The selection was small, in comparison to all the other products; that were there for sale. Then someone asked me if I knew about Youth & Children's materials. Sorry, most of the material I have seen… I would not use to start a campfire! Why…? Simply because the Scriptures; do not make a differentiation; between Adult and Child…. “TRUTH”…! IF a child can be “Born Again by God’s Holy Spirit”… Why ‘then’ can’t he or she… “Learn the Holy Word” of God…? The Holy Spirit is the Real Teacher of Gods’ Truth!
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them ‘through’ Your Truth. Your Word ‘is’ Truth.
*** (John 5:38-39-40) And you ‘do not’ have His [God’s] Word abiding in you, for you ‘do not’ believe Him [Jesus] Whom He [God] has sent.
(Joh 5:39) You ‘search’ the Scriptures, for in them you ‘think’ you have eternal life. And they are the ones ‘witnessing’ of Me [Jesus],
(Joh 5:40) and you ‘will not’ come to Me that you might have [eternal] life.
*** (Joh 15:1-2-3) I [Jesus] am the True Vine, and My Father [God] is the Vinedresser.
(Joh 15:2) Every branch in Me [Jesus] that ‘does not’ bear fruit, He [God] takes away. And every one that bears fruit, He ‘prunes’ it so that it may bring forth ‘more’ fruit.
(Joh 15:3) Now you are ‘clean’ through the Word which I [Jesus] have ‘spoken’ to you.
*** (John 14:16-17-18) And I [Jesus] will pray the Father [God], and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He [The Holy Spirit] may be with you ‘forever’, [John 7:38-39]
(Joh 14:17) the Spirit of Truth, Whom the world ‘cannot’ receive ‘because’ it does not see Him ‘nor’ know Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you.
(Joh 14:18) I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.
The Anointing – 101 Blog about the Holy Spirit
Do you ‘follow’… the teaching of a ‘Pastor’ or ‘Church’ or a ‘Denomination’…? Or do you ‘follow’ the Holy Word of God; as your “Only” point of reference…? The Holy Word of God… is there for our learning; about God and what He requires of “US!” Without the Word… we just have “Religions and Man’s Opinions”… about “God and His Truth!” Don’t you ‘know’, that Satan ‘does not’ want you to know what God says; in His Holy Word…? Jesus, when contending with the Devil; simply said… “It is written”…! But written where…? In the Holy Scriptures…!
*** (Deuteronomy 6:6-to-9) And these words which I command you this day shall be in your heart.
(Deut 6:7) And you shall ‘carefully teach’ them to your sons, and shall ‘talk’ of them when; you ‘sit’ in your house and when you ‘walk’ by the way, and when you ‘lie down’, and when you ‘rise up’.
(Deut 6:8) And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
(Deut 6:9) And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates.
*** (Joshua 1:7-to-9) Only be strong and very courageous so that you ‘may be careful’ to do according to all the Law which My servant Moses commanded you. ‘Do not’ turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may ‘act wisely’ wherever you go.
(Josh 1:8) This book of the Law ‘shall not’ depart out of your mouth, but you shall ‘meditate’ on it by ‘day and by night’, so that you may be careful ‘to do’ according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall act wisely.
(Josh 1:9) Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage. Do not be afraid, neither be dismayed. For Jehovah your God is with you in all places where you go.
*** (Psalms 19:7-to-12) 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.
(Psa 19:12) Who can ‘understand’ his errors? Oh make me pure ‘from’ secret faults;
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have ‘hidden’ Your Word in my heart, so that I ‘might not’ sin against You [Lord].
Children’s and Youth ‘Church’… has done more to ruin the “Family Unit!” “Why”… You Say…? It has removed the Parental Spiritual Authority… and replaced it with “Immature Authority!” Children leading Children… Babes leading Babes… and developing generations ‘without’ respect for their… “Parents, Elders and Seniors”…! When was the last time you heard a youth use ‘Manners’ when; Speaking with an Adult…? Did they use, “Mr. or Mrs. Jones”… or did they use Bill & Betty… when speaking with an Adult…?
*** (Isaiah 24:2) And as it is with the people, = so it shall be with the pastor; = 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.
*** (1Timothy 3:6) ‘not’ a novice, lest being puffed up he may fall into the condemnation of the Devil.
*** (1Timothy 1:7-8) desiring to be ‘teachers’ of the law [Word], ‘neither’ understanding what they say nor that which they affirm.
(1Tim 1:8) But we know that the law [Word] is good if a man uses it lawfully,
*** (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.
*** (Isaiah 3:4-5) And I will give ‘children’ to be their princes, and ‘babes’ shall rule over them.
(Isaiah 3:5) And the people shall be ‘oppressed’, everyone ‘by’ another, and every one ‘by’ his neighbor: the child shall ‘behave’ himself proudly ‘against’ the ancient, and the base ‘against’ the honorable.
Any Biblical Instruction ‘needs’ to be… “Only” from the Holy Word of God…! It ‘does not’ and ‘cannot’ be: “Someone’s Opinion” of what God says… in His Holy Word! Today many preachers are “Never” held accountable by their Congregations! When there is SIN… in the Church; it is “Not Handled”… “According to the Scriptures!” Don’t you believe that…? Simply read the books of “1&2 Corinthians”… and their Adultery [C5]; their taking each other to Court [C6] and the list goes on and on. Do you ‘truly believe’ that the Churches today; are without Fault…? Many do not Preach from the Holy Word: but have “More Entertainment”… than Bible Teaching! They simply call it… Worship; when in reality… it is Entertainment!
*** (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.
*** (2Timothy 4:2-3-4) Preach the Word, be Instant in season and out of season, Reprove, Rebuke, Exhort with all long-suffering and Doctrine.
(2Ti 4:3) For a time will be when they ‘will not’ endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up ‘teachers’ to themselves according to their ‘own lusts’, tickling the ear.
(2Ti 4:4) And they will ‘turn away’ their ears from the Truth and will be turned to ‘fables’.
*** (Matthew 4:4) But He [Jesus] answered, "It is written, 'One must not live on bread alone, but on every word coming out of the mouth of God.'"
*** (Luke 4:4) Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'One must not live on bread alone, but on every word of God.'"
*** (Psalms 119:97-to-104) MEM: Oh how I love Your Law! It is my meditation all the day.
(Psa 119:98) Through Your Commandments You make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
(Psa 119:99) I have ‘more understanding’ than all my teachers; for Your Testimonies are my prayer.
(Psa 119:100) I ‘understand’ more than the old men, because I Keep Your Commandments.
(Psa 119:101) I have ‘kept’ my feet from every evil way, so that I might ‘keep’ Your Word.
(Psa 119:102) I ‘have not’ departed from Your Judgments; for You have ‘taught’ me.
(Psa 119:103) How sweet are Your Words to my taste! More than honey to my mouth!
(Psa 119:104) Through Your Commandments I get ‘understanding’; therefore I ‘hate’ every false way.
“How do I know that the Bible”…? – 101 Blog.
Where do “YOU” go from here…? Did you know that the early Church met in homes; for worship and Bible study? There were no Churches or Denominations… as we have here today in many countries. The Family Unit… is the main instruction base for the Family! ‘Not’ your local Church…! “More is Caught… than Taught!” Remember this: “You ‘cannot’ lead anyone Spiritually Further: “Than you have come… in your relationship… with Christ Jesus and in your Knowledge of His Holy Word!” So what is keeping You; from Knowing God’s Holy Word… that you may share “HIM–Christ”… ‘Instead of Religion’…?
Love, in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
