“Offending ‘Unbelievers?’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah.
Today is National Atheists’ Day… “April 1 = April Fools’ Day!”
Can you ‘say’ something… to offend an unbeliever… to keep them; from ‘Coming to Christ’…? Please answer the question; “Yes–or– No?” If you said “YES”: then you ‘Falsely Claim’… more power than God; the God of the Bible! So very many who ‘do not’ know their Bibles… and have been ‘wrongly’ taught! They are afraid to… “Speak the Truth – of God’s Holy Word!” If you ‘Believe’ in “Heaven & Rewards”… you must ‘ALSO’ believe in… “Hell & Eternal Damnation & Eternal Punishment!” “Many” share Christ Jesus as a sort of… ‘Santa Clause’… Who will ‘fix’… all your woes and then bless you with; health, financial prosperity and happiness! That is “NOT” the Christ Jesus of the Bible!
*** (John 6:44) No ‘ONE’ can come to Me [Jesus] ‘unless’ the Father [God] Who has sent Me draw him, and I will ‘raise’ him up at the last day.
*** (Acts 17:30-31) Truly, then, God overlooking the times of ignorance, now He ‘strictly’ commands “ALL” men everywhere: “To Repent”, [have ‘You’ ever told ‘God’s Command = To Repent = to an Unbeliever?]
(Acts 17:31) because He [God] has appointed a day in which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by a Man [Christ Jesus] Whom He appointed, having given proof to all by raising Him from the dead. [John 12:44-to-50]
*** (John 10:16) I [Jesus] have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must lead these also, and they will ‘listen’ [hear] to my voice. So there will be one flock and one shepherd.
*** (John 6:63-to-66) It is the [Holy] Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I [Jesus] speak to you are Spirit and are Life.
(Joh 6:64) But there are some of you who ‘do not’ believe. For Jesus ‘knew’ from the beginning who they were who ‘did not’ believe, and who is the one betraying Him.
(Joh 6:65) And He said, Because of this I said to you that ‘no one’; can come to Me unless it was given to him from My Father.
(Joh 6:66) From this time many of His disciples went back into the things behind, and ‘walked’ no more with Him.
Do “YOU”… Present an Unbalanced Gospel…?
Unbalanced – 101 Blog.
How ‘many’ times… have You ‘shared’; the Judgment of God; for ‘ALL’ those that Reject His; “Love & Mercy & Grace”…? If you have never… you have ‘Not’ shared the “True Gospel!” Verse for verse in the NT… Christ Jesus spoke more; about Hell & Damnation… then He did about Heaven & Rewards! Is your Jesus… the ‘One’ you share with Others… the Christ Jesus of the Bible…? So very many; are afraid to ‘offend’ the unbeliever. They are ‘already’… Blinded By Satan… and then YOU = Hold Back… and “DO NOT”… ‘Warn Them’…? Simply read through the “OT & NT” and you will see the Boldness… of the ‘real’ men of God; who were NOT… “FEARFUL” to speak; of the Real God of the Bible and of His Holy Word…!
*** (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 myths.
*** (Acts 20:26-to-31) Therefore I ‘testify’ to you on this day; that I am pure from the blood of all. [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21]
(Act 20:27) For I ‘did not’ keep back from ‘declaring’ to you; ‘All’ the counsel of God.
(Act 20:28) Therefore take heed to yourselves, and to all the flock in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to feed the church of God which He has purchased with His own blood.
(Act 20:29) For I know this, that after my departure grievous wolves shall enter in among you, not sparing the flock. [2Peter 2:1-2]
(Act 20:30) Also men shall arise ‘from’ your own selves, speaking ‘perverse’ things; in order to ‘draw’ disciples away after them.
(Act 20:31) Therefore watch and remember that for the time of three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears. [Jude 1:3-4]
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for they are rebellious.
*** (Mark 6:17-18-19) For Herod himself had sent out and laid hold on John and had bound him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife. For he had married her,
(Mar 6:18) and John had said to Herod, It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife.
(Mar 6:19) And Herodias held it against him, and desired to kill him, but she could not. [Mark 10:11-12]
*** (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let us hear the ‘conclusion’ of the whole matter. Fear God, and keep His commandments. For this is the whole ‘duty of man’.
(Eccl 12:14) For God ‘shall’ bring every work into judgment, with every ‘secret’ thing, whether it is good, ‘or’ whether evil.
The Unbeliever is ‘SPIRITUALLY’ Blinded Already…! ‘He & She’… Lives in the Darkness of SIN/SINS… and needs; to be ‘shown’ the Light of Christ! Each & Every ONE… has been shown the light of Christ; at least once. Depending on their ‘response’ to Spiritual Light & Truth; they either: ‘Accept’ the light, and are given More Light: Or they ‘reject’ the Light of the glorious gospel of Christ! Rejection of God’s Truth & Light… increases their Spiritual Blindness. God has provided mankind with… “Free Will”… and it is their individual ‘Choice’… to accept or to reject it!
*** (2Corinthians 4:3-4) So if our gospel is ‘veiled’, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, the god of this world [Satan] has ‘blinded’ the minds of those who ‘do not’ believe to keep them from seeing; the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God. [Colossians 1:12-to-20]
*** (John 8:12) Then Jesus spoke ‘again’ to them, saying, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall ‘have’ the light of life. [Romans 8:9]
*** (Matthew 5:16-17-18) Let your ‘light’ so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.
(Matt 5:17) Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have ‘not’ come to destroy ‘but’ to fulfill.

*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(Joh 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit, Whom those who were believing in Him [Jesus] were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was ‘not’ yet present, ‘because’ Jesus had not yet been glorified.
Many here in America… have walked a church aisle; said a prayer; and then believed that they were Christians. “IF” All say they professed Christ… why then; are they ‘not’ the Salt of the Earth…? It is ‘because’ their Belief in JESUS was “Not”… “as the Scripture has said”… “BUT” was as they were taught, by their Church! Say it isn’t so…? WHY then do so very many; Who grew up in Christian homes; Walk away from the Faith…? It is because they ‘simply’ have a “Cultural Religion called Christianity”… and were “Never”… “Born Again”, by the Holy Spirit of God! We here in America… Could ‘NOT’ Have Over… “55,000,000–Million… ‘Innocent Babies’… Murdered by ‘Abortion!’ Over 80% ‘claim’ that they are Christians here in America…! Why then are THEY… “NOT” speaking out… “About the Murder… of those ‘Innocent’ Babies”…?
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) Not everyone who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! Shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will [word] of My Father [God] in Heaven.
(Mat 7:22) “MANY” will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Mat 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you! For so their fathers did to the false prophets.
*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, ‘Unless’ a man is born again, he ‘cannot’ see the kingdom of God.
*** (Romans 10:9-to-13) Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For with the ‘heart’ one ‘believes’ unto righteousness, and with the ‘mouth’ one ‘confesses’ unto salvation.
(Rom 10:11) For the Scripture says, "Everyone believing on Him shall not be put to shame."
(Rom 10:12) For there is no difference both of Jew and of Gentile, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call on Him.
(Rom 10:13) For everyone, "whoever shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved."
*** (Acts 15:8-9) And God, Who knows their hearts, bore them witness, ‘giving’ them the Holy Spirit even as to us. [Ephesians 2:8-9-10 & Titus 3:5]
(Act 15:9) And He put no difference between us and them, ‘purifying’ their hearts by faith.
*** (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’.
*** (2Corinthains 13:5) examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith, prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are reprobates?

*** (Acts 11:26) And when he had found him [Paul], he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the “Disciples” [Believers of Christ] were called ‘Christians’ first in Antioch.
*** (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 [or not].
(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.
*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
*** Did YOU… “Open Your BIBLE”... and ‘Meet’ with Christ JESUS: in His “HOLY WORD”... before ‘YOU’... Turned on ‘Your’ Computer, Radio, or Cell Phone...?
