“Is Christian ‘Obedience’… Optional? – 101”…Blog.
*** (Matthew 24:37) But as the days of Noah were; so shall be the coming of the Son of Man.
*** (Genesis 6:5) And the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth; and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was ‘only’ evil continually.
*** (Matthew 24:12) and because lawlessness will increase; the love [Agape] of ‘many’ people will grow cold.
Before the Return of “Christ Jesus”… will things become more… “Good or Evil”… on the Earth…? We here in America have not experienced the wars as ‘Europe & Asia’ has. Our Civil War is only a historical item to most. Before God destroyed the world; with the flood… mankind was wicked… as “Genesis 6:5” says. So too, “Christ Jesus” told us that… as the days of Noah… so shall be His Return! And again in “Matthew 24:12”… because “Iniquity/Lawlessness”… shall abound… the love [Agape] of ‘Many’ will grow ‘Cold!’ That “Agape Love” only flows through those; who are Born Again by God’s Holy Spirit. Real Christians… will grow “Cold” in their Love; for both our Lord and for other Christians…! Don’t allow anyone to tell you thing will get better; the Scriptures say different…! Did the “Prosperous Israel” of Solomon… ever ‘recover’ their ‘Prosperity’…? Do you even know the OT Scriptures… and how their “Disobedience to God’s Holy Word”… led them into their… “70–year Captivity in Babylon”…?
“End of Days – 202”…Blog.
*** (Malachi 3:6) For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed.
*** (Hebrews 13:8) Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever.
*** (Deuteronomy 11:26-27-28) Behold, I set before you today; a blessing and a curse:
(Deut 11:27) A blessing if you obey the commandments of Jehovah your God which I command you today,
(Deut 11:28) and a curse if you will not obey the commandments of Jehovah your God, but will turn aside out of the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.
Just because “One”… says they ‘Know Jesus’… or says they are a ‘Christian’; but that… does ‘not’ make it so…! Many speak about the ‘Love of God’… and say they ‘Love Jesus’… but that… does ‘not’ make it so…! Why then ‘Today’… is there all this ‘Acceptance of Evil’… as if it were “Good”…? ‘Simple Silence’… is ‘Simple Acceptance!’ Right away you may ‘brand’ me… ‘Critical & Judgmental’…! But “FEWER”… even want to; “Know About” the above Bible statement… (Deuteronomy 11:26-27-28)… “BOTH” the… “Blessings & Curses”… for “Obedience or Disobedience!” Remember ‘One Thing’… the “Will of GOD” = “Always Equals” = the “Holy Word of God”…! When we “All” stand before Christ Jesus to be Judged… for our ‘Testimony & Works’… what will ‘You’ tell… “Him?” If this were “Not So”… then Christ Jesus… would have said… “Few”… or… “Some”… but… “Not–MANY”…!
*** (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 in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) MANY = will say to Me [Jesus] 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?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them: “I ‘never’ knew you!” Depart from Me; those working lawlessness!
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do you call Me [Jesus] Lord, Lord; and = ‘Do Not Do’ = what I [Jesus] say?
*** (John 15:9-to-12) As the Father [God] has loved Me [Jesus]; so I have loved you; continue in My love.
(John 15:10) ‘If’ you keep My commandments; you shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
(John 15:11) I have spoken these things to you so that; ‘My’ joy might remain in you and ‘your’ joy might be full.
(John 15:12) This is My commandment; that you love one another as I have loved you.
*** (Ezekiel 33:31) And they come to you as the people come, and they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words. But they will not do them. For with their mouth they show ‘much love’; but their heart goes after their ‘unjust’ gain.
*** (John 8:28-29) Then Jesus said to them; When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you shall know that I AM [Exodus 3:14]; and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father has taught Me, I speak these things.
(John 8:29) And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone; for I always do those things which please Him.
*** (John 12:44-to-50) But Jesus cried out and said, He who believes on Me; does not believe on Me but on Him who sent Me.
(Joh 12:45) And he who sees Me [Jesus] sees Him [God] Who sent Me.
(Joh 12:46) I have come as a Light into the world, so that whoever believes on Me should not remain in darkness.
(Joh 12:47) And if any one hears My Words and does not believe, I do not judge him, for I do not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
(Joh 12:48) He who rejects Me and does not receive My Words has one who judges him; the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
(Joh 12:49) For I [Jesus] have not spoken of Myself, but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say, and what I should speak.
(Joh 12:50) And I know that His command is life everlasting. Therefore whatever I speak, even as the Father said to Me, so I speak.
“Do ‘YOU’ = Love ‘Jesus’ – 101” …Blog.
How do You know… ‘What’ you need to Obey; If you do not; ‘read & study’… the Scriptures, the Holy Word of God…? Why do you think… that God gave us His Holy Word…? So that we could ‘Only’… carry our Bibles to Church…? The Bible is the Most Unread Book… in the Christian Home…! The TV and Video’s & Games… are more used; than the Bible…! What is wrong with that… ‘Picture?’ Just perhaps that is why… we have such a rapid moral decline… in our country… where ‘So Very Many’ profess… “To Know God”…? That is why… ‘So Very Many’ = who say they are Christian; are Silent about the Murder of those Innocent Babies… “Killed by Abortion”… in their American Mothers’ Wombs…! American Mothers… “Killing their Innocent Babies”… and the rest are… “SILENT”…? Do you watch TV programs or Videos… where the Homosexual Agenda… is promoted as ‘Gay’… and “Not as an Abomination to God”…? Surely, the Holy Word of God… has “Not Changed”…! You have simply… ‘Accepted as Normal’… what; “God will Judge the World For”…!

*** (Ezekiel 3:18-to-21) When I [God] say to the wicked; You shall surely die; and you do not give him warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way; to save his life; the same wicked one shall die in his iniquity; but I will require his blood at your hand.
(Eze 3:19) Yet if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
(Eze 3:20) And when the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and when I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.
(Eze 3:21) But if you warn the righteous so that the righteous does not sin, and if he does not sin, he shall surely live because he is warned; also you have delivered your soul.
“Give them A ‘Warning’ – 101” …Blog.
Right away someone will say… “You are Judging Me”…! Aren’t we ‘All’ part of our society… and make up our nation. Can some peddle… ‘Illegal Drugs’ or ‘Pornography’… and it “Not Affect ‘ALL’ of Society”…? Can you watch the “Filth portrayed as Good” on TV… and it ‘not’ affect your Thinking…? This recent… “Caylee Anthony”… trial and others; have been ‘Affected’ by that CSI television program; to the “Harm of Society!” In an hour program, a criminal is tracked, caught, presented the evidence and is booked; case solved! “Impossible Fantasy”… but so many people are so inundated; by the fiction on TV… that they cannot… ‘Think or Reason’… normally! Matter of fact… people ‘do not’ know how to respond to life situations… except what they learn how to; from TV or Videos! They miss that God’s Holy Word… has Spiritual Principles that can be applied to ‘Any’ life situation…!

*** (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness lifts up a nation, but sin is a rebuke to any people.
*** (1Corinthians 5:6) Your boasting is not good. You know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough; don't you?
*** (Matthew 5:13) You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its savor; with what shall it be salted? It is no longer good for anything; but to be thrown out and to be trodden underfoot by men.
*** (Luke 17:3) Take heed to yourselves. If your brother trespasses against you; rebuke him. And if he repents; forgive him.
*** (1Timothy 5:20) Those who sin, rebuke before all; so that the rest also may fear [God].
*** (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!
Most Christians ‘do not’ read & study… their Bibles! How then are they suppose to understand; “Obedience” to Christ Jesus; and to His Holy Word…? How about You…? Do you meet [Mark 1:35] with Christ Jesus… in His Holy Word… [2Corinthains 4:16] “Daily”…? How else does one; cleans himself or herself [John 15:3] from the contaminations of this fallen evil world…? Do you give the first of your day… to Christ Jesus… or do you turn on your; TV, Computer or Phone… “First?” Just perhaps “Obedience to Christ”… and to His Holy Word… has not even entered your mind or heart…? Christian Music & Other Pseudo Christian things… have replaced; God’s Holy Word… in your “Heart & Mind & Thoughts”…? I will simply leave you with these verses… and then allow you… “To Obey”… or “Not”…!
*** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) Of course, we are living in the flesh; but we ‘do not’ fight in a fleshly way.
(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’ arguments
(2Cor 10:5) and ‘every’ proud obstacle; that is ‘raised against’ the knowledge of God; taking ‘every thought’ captive; in order ‘to obey’ Christ.
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready; to punish [Proverbs 28:13; ‘every’ act of disobedience [1John 1:5-to-10]; when your ‘obedience’ [James 1:22 & Luke 6:46] is complete.
