“Daily: Spiritual ‘Decisions’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (Joshua 24:15) And if it seems evil to you to serve Jehovah [God]; You choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served Beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live. But as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah.
*** (2Corinthians 6:17) Therefore come out from among them and be separated, says the Lord, and do not touch the unclean thing. And I [God] will receive you
(2Co 6:18) and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.
*** (Ezekiel 44:23) And they shall teach My people to discern between the holy and common, and between the unclean and the clean.
Did ‘YOU’ Celebrate… “Easter”… or “Resurrection ‘Son’–day”…? If you had ‘Chocolate’ Bunnies and ‘Dyed’ Easter eggs… You did “NOT” Celebrate… “Resurrection “Son”–day…! Say it isn’t SO…? May I ask you ‘one’ question…? Will there be… Died Easter Eggs and Chocolate Easter Bunnies in Heaven…? Can “YOU” serve… “Two Masters”…? Christ Jesus says you… “Cannot!” Here in America… there is “No Cost” for following Jesus; in Obedience to His Holy Word. No one holds you accountable… “Not even your Church!” No wonder why so ‘very many’… believe in Jesus… but “Not” as He has said… “John 7:38-39” In any third world or predominately Muslim countries… there is a “Definite Cost”; for Confessing Jesus! It goes from… ‘banishment’ by one’s family… and ‘rejection’ from the entire community… “To Death!”
Fox’s Book of Martyrs.
*** (Matthew 10:34-to-38) Do not think that I [Jesus] have come to bring peace on earth. I ‘did not’ come to send peace, but a ‘Sword’.
(Mat 10:35) For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
(Mat 10:36) And a man's foes shall be those of his own household.
(Mat 10:37) He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
(Mat 10:38) And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.
*** (Jeremiah 23:29-30) Is not My Word like a fire? says Jehovah; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
(Jer 23:30) So Jehovah says, Behold, I am against the prophets who ‘steal’ My Words each one from his neighbor.
“NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, the Holy Word of God... “Unless”… ‘They are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with… “His Holy Word”...!"
*** (Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. Do not My words do good to him who walks uprightly?
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for they are rebellious.
“Christ Jesus” was ‘Crucified’ to the Cross… and hung there for over ‘Three Hours!’ He loved us so very much that He became the… “Passover Lamb of God – 1Corinthians 5:7”. And you fear telling your Family, Friends and Brother’s & Sisters in Christ… I am sorry I do ‘NOT’ Celebrate Easter with ‘Easter Eggs’ and ‘Chocolate Bunnies’… because it is a Pagan Holiday. In reality… the Passover was celebrated by the NT Church… and that is the real Holiday. In circa 327 AD, ‘Emperor Constantine’… united both the Christians and Pagan Holidays… to bring ‘peace’ to his empire. The Christians soon forgot the Passover Celebration of the early Church… and started Celebrating… “Easter!”

Backslidden Israel… served “Both GOD”… and their ‘Heathen’ Idols; much like… “American Christians Today”. And they think ‘Nothing’ of it either…! They even make… “Excuses”… for their Children and their celebrations. Just who is the ‘Parent’… and the “Spiritual Leader” in that… Family; is it the “Children’s Worldly Wants & Pleasures”…? Parents “LIE” to their young children about Presents & ‘Santa Clause’… and the ‘Easter Bunny; and then when they are older… tell them about ‘JESUS!’ That double mindedness is serving God and Pagan Idols. What the Parents; ‘Allow in Moderation’… the Children will; ‘Excuse in Excess’…! You ‘cannot’ lead ‘Anyone’… ‘Spiritually Further’… “Than ‘YOU’ have Come!”
*** (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.
*** (Ezekiel 14:12) The Word of Jehovah came again to me, saying,
(Eze 14:13) Son of man, when a land sins against Me by traitorous betraying, then I will stretch out My hand on it, and will break the staff of its bread, and will send famine on it, and will cut off man and beast from it.
(Eze 14:14) And though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver only their own souls by their righteousness, says the Lord Jehovah.
*** (Ezekiel 8:6-to-13) And He said to me, Son of man, do you see what they do; even the great abominations which the house of Israel is doing here, that I should go far off from My sanctuary? But turn again, and you shall see greater abominations.
(Eze 8:7) And He brought me to the opening of the court; and I looked, and behold, a hole in the wall.
(Eze 8:8) And He said to me, Son of man, dig in the wall now. And I dug in the wall, and, behold, an opening.
(Eze 8:9) And he said to me. Go in and see the evil abominations that they do here.
(Eze 8:10) And I went in and saw. And behold, every kind of creeping thing, and hateful beast, and all the idols of the house of Israel, were carved on the wall all around.
(Eze 8:11) And seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, standing among them, these were before them, and each man with his censor in his hand. And the odor of the cloud of incense was rising.
(Eze 8:12) And He said to me, Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, each man in his image room? For they are saying, Jehovah does not see us; Jehovah has forsaken the earth.
(Eze 8:13) He also said to me, You turn again, and you shall see greater evils that they are doing.

“Politics” and the National Restoration of the ‘Good Times’… has become ‘More Important’ than Sharing Christ & Preaching… “Repentance & the Holy Word of God”…! Do you… “REALLY THINK”… that ‘Politics’ will save America from its… “Moral & Spiritual–Bankruptcy”…? Which leader do you think… will call this Nation: “To Repentance”…?

Over “55,000,000 have Died Already!” Which leader will stop the OVER = “$4-trillion dollar a year… ‘Illegal’ Drug Trade”…?

*** (Isaiah 58:1) Cry aloud, do not spare, lift up your voice like a ram's horn, and show My people their rebellion, and the house of Jacob their sins.
*** (Hosea 10:12) Sow to yourselves in righteousness, = reap in mercy; = break up your fallow ground. = For it is time to seek Jehovah, = until He comes and rains righteousness on you.
*** (James 4:7-to-10) Therefore, submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
(Jas 4:8) Come close to God, and he will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
(Jas 4:9) Be miserable, mourn, and cry. Let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy into gloom.
(Jas 4:10) Be humbled before the Lord, and He will lift you up.

*** (Heb 5:11) 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 [Holy] Word. = You have become people = who need milk = instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk = is still a [spiritually] 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.
Just where do ‘YOU’… Go from here: in your Walk with Christ Jesus…? ? ? Will you continue to be ‘Silent’ about… ‘WHAT the Holy Word of God’… “Really Says”…” Remember the Believer and Un-Believer see No Difference in You and Everybody else… or… do they…?
*** (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!
Love, in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
