“The ‘Voice’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 14:10) There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
*** (1Samuel 2:30) And Jehovah, the God of Israel says, I said indeed, Your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever. But now Jehovah says, Be it far from Me! For those who honor Me [God], I will honor, and those that think little of Me shall be lightly regarded.
*** (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.
Did You hear His Voice…? Whose voice, you may ask? But of course; the “Voice of God!” Each time you… ‘Read & Study’ His Holy Word… you are hearing His voice. This morning I was having my quiet time reading though the gospel of John. These verses, “John 12:29–32” seemed to jump, right off the page. Do you realize that ‘All’ there… heard the same “Voice?” But to some, the spiritually unconcerned; it was ‘only’ thunder. But to the spiritually astute; it was the voice of an angel. What was the ‘difference’, in those two groups? The one group ‘wanted’ to hear, the others ‘did not’. And so it is today among the Religious, both the Born Again; and the ‘Not’ Born Again; by the Holy Spirit of God! Which group do ‘You’ fall into…? Are ‘You’ expecting to hear the Holy Spirit; teach ‘You’ from The Holy Word of God? Or are ‘You’ in that group; that ‘does not’; want to hear what… “God is saying to ‘All’… Mankind?” Just because you hear “His Voice”… ‘does not’ mean that; ‘You’ will… “Obey Him!”
*** (Acts 17:30-31-32) Though God has overlooked those times of ignorance, He now ‘strictly’ commands ‘everyone’; everywhere; “To Repent”,
(Acts 17:31) for He has set a day, ‘when’ He is going to judge the world with justice through a Man [Christ], He has appointed, and He has given proof of this to everyone; by raising Him from the dead."
(Acts 17:32) When they heard about a resurrection of the dead, some began ‘joking’ about it, while others said, “We will hear you ‘again’ about this.”
*** (John 12:29-to-32) Then the crowd who stood by and heard, said that it thundered. Others said, An angel spoke to Him.
(Joh 12:30) Jesus answered and said, This voice ‘did not come’ because of Me, but for your sakes.
(Joh 12:31) Now is the judgment of this world. Now shall the prince of this world [Satan] be cast out.
(Joh 12:32) And I [Jesus], if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw ‘all’ to Myself.
*** (Hebrews 3:6-7-8) But Christ was faithful as a Son over His own house; whose ‘house’ we are, ‘if’ we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end. [Romans 8:9]
(Heb 3:7) Therefore, as the Holy Spirit ‘says’, Today ‘If’ you will hear His voice,
(Heb 3:8) ‘Do Not’, harden your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness,
“Give them A ‘Warning’ – 101” …Blog.
Do you ever ‘watch’ TV…? Did you notice the ‘Advertisements’ are getting more frequent? Switching channels does not help; for I have seen the same add; at the same time; on three different channels! That is why I… Mute… the sound during them. I ‘do not’ want to hear their ‘Voice!’… Nor be ‘Brainwashed’ by their ‘Lies!’ If you have ever watched the TMC and their classic movies; someone is always ‘smoking’. This sublimation… has ‘poisoned’ many generations; into thinking ‘Smoking is Safe.’ In Canada, there are color pictures of ‘smoke damaged organs’; unlike the printed warnings, here in the USA. Of course, Forest Gump’s Mother said it ‘All’… “Stupid is a Stupid Does!” You that smoke… simply ‘obeyed’ the Voice you heard!
*** (1Corinthians 14:40) Let all things be done decently and in order.
*** (1Corinthains 14:38) But if any is ignorant, let him be ignorant.
*** (Proverbs 26:11) As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool returns to his folly.
*** (Ecclesiastes 7:13-14-15) Consider the work of God; for who can make straight what He has made crooked?
(Eccl 7:14) In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity take note that God also has set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
(Eccl 7:15) All things I have seen in the days of my vanity; there is a just one who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked one who prolongs life in his wickedness.
*** (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.
Answering Blind FAITH - 101
Did you ever ‘hear’ the saying… “A Picture is worth a thousand Words?” God throughout His Holy Word… has chosen to ‘communicate’ [Voice] in His written Word; using “Word Pictures!” Often times He uses ‘anthropomorphic’ terms and other times He uses ‘types’ and ‘pictures’ in His Holy Word. In reality He is using… “His Voice”… to communicate His Holy Truth to mankind; in a ‘simple’ format. He communicates a ‘Deeper Truth’… to those seeking “More Truth.” [Deuteronomy 29:29] In your ‘lifetime’ walk with Christ Jesus… in His Holy Word… are you ‘only’ just a “Casual Learner”… “Not putting ‘into’ practice His Truth”…? He gave us His Holy Word for… “Each & Every”… “Life Application!” What good is His Holy Word If… “YOU”… ‘Do not’ apply it; to your “Life Situations?” “Matthew 4:4 & Luke 4:4”
*** (1John 1:1) That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of Life,
*** (John 1:14-to-17) And the Word [Jesus] became flesh, and lived among us. And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and of truth.
(Joh 1:15) John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, This was He of whom I spoke: He who comes after me; has been before me, for He was preceding me.
(Joh 1:16) And out of His fullness we all have received, and grace for grace.
(Joh 1:17) For the Law came through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
*** (John 6:48) I [Jesus] am the Bread of life.
*** (John 10:9) I [Jesus] am the door. If anyone enters in by Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture.
*** (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.
*** (Hebrews 12:28) Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that 'cannot' be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may 'serve' God acceptably with reverence and godly fear,
(Heb 12:29) for also, "Our God is a consuming fire."
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a fire? Says Jehovah; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
“By Application – 201” …Blog.
About now… you may realize that the word… “VOICE”… is simply a modem of communication. God gave us His Holy Word… to change us from the… “Inside to the Outside!” If the Word ‘does not’ change your… ‘Life Agenda’… then perhaps you have never ‘Truly’ been Born Again? Perhaps His Holy Word has no meaning or is shallow; and you hear ‘Thunder’ instead of His Voice! The Holy Spirit speaks though… “The Word”… making “Spiritual Truth”… ‘Food’ for our souls and lives. Knowing ‘about’ God and His Word… ‘Without’ a Personal Relationship with Christ Jesus; will simply make you a Pharisee, a Sadducee, a Scribe or a Lawyer. All of those “Religious”… of Jesus’ day… ‘Refused’ to see Him as the Messiah; the Passover Lamb of God! So too the 'Religious' of today… "Refuse" to yield… their Whole Self… to the Lord of Lords and King of Kings!
*** (Matthew 22:29) Jesus answered and said to them, “You ERR!” [Wrong!], ‘Not’ knowing the Scriptures ‘Nor’ the power of God.
*** (Revelation 19:13-to-16) And He [Jesus] had been clothed in a garment ‘dipped in blood’, and His name is ‘called’; The Word of God. [Isaiah 63:1-to-4]
(Rev 19:14) And the armies in Heaven ‘followed’ Him on white horses, ‘clothed’ in fine linen, white and clean.
(Rev 19:15) And out of His mouth ‘goes’ a sharp sword, so that with it He should ‘strike’ the nations. And He will ‘shepherd’ them with a rod of iron. And He ‘treads’ the winepress of the wine of the anger ‘and’ of the wrath of Almighty God.
(Rev 19:16) And He [Jesus] has on His ‘garment’, and on His ‘thigh’ a name written; KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
*** (1Corinthians 2:10-to-14) But God has ‘revealed’ those things; to us by His [Holy] Spirit. For the Spirit searches ‘everything’, even the deep things of God.
(1Co 2:11) Is there anyone who can understand his own thoughts ‘except’ by his own inner spirit? In the same way, ‘no one’ can know; the thoughts of God ‘except’ God's Spirit.
(1Co 2:12) Now, we ‘have not’ received the spirit of the world’ but the [Holy] Spirit, Who comes from God, so that we ‘can’ understand the things’ that were ‘freely’ given to us by God.
(1Co 2:13) We don't speak ‘about’ these things in words; taught us by human wisdom, but in words ‘taught’ by the [Holy] Spirit, as we ‘explain’; spiritual things to spiritual people.
(1Co 2:14) A person who isn't spiritual [Born Again]; doesn't accept the things of God's Spirit, for they are ‘foolishness’ to them. He can't understand them; ‘because’ they are spiritually evaluated.
*** (Luke 6:46) Why do you keep calling Me [Jesus] 'Lord, Lord,' = but ‘don't do’ what I [Jesus] tell you?
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word, and ‘NOT’ merely hearers, who Deceive themselves.
*** (James 1:27) A religion that is pure and stainless in the sight of God the Father is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering, and to keep oneself ‘unstained’ by the world.
*** (John 14:26-27) But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name, He shall ‘teach’ you all things and bring all things to your ‘remembrance’, whatever I [Jesus] have said to you.
(Joh 14:27) Peace I [Jesus] leave with you, My peace I [Jesus] give to you. ‘Not’ as the world gives do I [Jesus] give to you. Let ‘not’ your heart be troubled, ‘neither’ let it be afraid. [Psalms 56:3]
