Nearer my God to Thee – Titanic Sinking.
The above movie clip… is from the original 1953 movie; ‘The Titanic’. The news reports from the survivors were the ‘factual’ background of this movie. There were actually musicians who played to calm the people; while that gigantic ship was sinking. Had they not played; an all out pandemonium would have ensued. They ‘saw’ their responsibility… and ‘acted’ accordingly… as did the captain and the crew. Save the passengers first… and help out as much as possible to those remaining; who would surely die in the freezing waters. So what exactly is your “Responsibility”… IF you are Born Again by God’s Holy Spirit…?
*** (2Timothy 4:2-3-4) to proclaim the Word. Be ready to do this whether or not the time is convenient. Refute, warn, and encourage with the utmost patience when you teach.
(2Tim 4:3) For the time will come when people ‘will not’ put up with healthy doctrine; but with itching ears, will surround themselves with teachers who cater to their own needs.

Today on FB… the question was asked: “IF it were a ‘Crime’… to be a Born Again Christian = would there be ‘Enough Evidence’; “To ‘Convict’ YOU?” Well, would there ‘Be’…? Have you ‘ever’ been ‘Told’… “You take a ‘Too Strict’ View… of Scripture!” Or, do you really believe that God really meant to give us ‘instead’ the… “10–Suggestions?” Do you ‘read & study’ the Holy Word of God… “Daily?” Christ Jesus met with His Heavenly Father… each and every morning. “Do You”…? Do you give Him the… “Best of your Best” Or do you give Him; just the “Leftovers”… when you are too tired and worn out from; the ‘press of the day?’ Does your TV, or Cell, or… Computer: come before… your time with Him… in His Holy Word…?

“Whose your ‘Daddy’ – 101?”…Blog.
Someone said to ‘Me’… “Your writings are so Accusational!” Wow, imagine that, me a mere mortal… taking God’s Holy Word and sharing it… and “Someone” being Convicted…? Sorry… it was not I; a mere mortal… but “God’s Holy Word”… the “Sword of the Spirit”… doing that! I do not have the mere mortal ability; to convict anyone; of anything… in their Lives! It is the Light of Scripture… and the Holy Spirit of God: that convicts ‘Anyone’… in their “Heart of Hearts!” The “Holy Spirit” convicts both… ‘Believer and Non Believer!’ Surely a mere mortal human being ‘cannot’ do that!
*** (John 3:19-20) And this is the ‘condemnation’, that the Light [Jesus] has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the Light, because their deeds were evil.

*** (John 16:7-to-11) But I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you. But if I depart, I will send Him to you.
(Joh 16:8) And when that One [Holy Spirit] comes, He will convict the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment.
(Joh 16:9) Concerning sin, because they do not believe on Me;
(Joh 16:10) Concerning righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
(Joh 16:11) Concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

*** (2Samuel 24:24) And the king said to Araunah, No, but I will surely buy from you at a price. And I will not offer burnt offerings to Jehovah my God of that which costs me nothing. And David bought the threshing-floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
*** (Isaiah 5:1) Now I will sing to my Beloved a song of my Beloved concerning His vineyard. My Beloved has a vineyard in a very fruitful hill.

*** (Malachi 1:8) And if you offer the ‘blind’ for sacrifice, is it not evil? And if you offer the ‘lame’ and the ‘sick’, is it not evil? Bring it now to ‘your governor’. Will he accept you, or lift up your face, says Jehovah of Hosts?

“Do ‘YOU’ = Love ‘Jesus’ – 101” …Blog.
Where do “You”… go from here…? That choice is “Totally Yours!” Simply remember… Life is ‘Not’ made up of a “Few Major Decisions”… but of… “Millions of ‘Little’ Ones!” You have your… God given ‘Free Will’… and it enables “You Alone”… to make those ‘Good or ‘Not So God’… “Choices!”

(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are ‘not’ those of the flesh. Instead, they have the ‘power’ of God to demolish fortresses. We ‘tear down’ [rebellion] arguments
