“What is ‘your’ Bible ‘FOR’...? – 101”…Blog.
(Revelation 22:20-21) The One; Who is testifying to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
(Rev 22:21) May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.
Some time ago… I went into a ‘Christian Book Store’. I was amazed at the ‘Many Books’; the large selection of ‘Christian Music’ and their ‘Other’ things! And yet the Bible selection… seemed to pale in comparison to all those; ‘Other Things’. IF you are Truly Born Again… by God’s Holy Spirit… isn’t His Holy Word… “The Only Thing ‘YOU’ Need”…? Surely all the “True Saints of God”… throughout the Ages… did ‘Not’ have those… “Pseudo Christian Book Stores”…! To say it is an ‘American Cultural Thing’… is not enough. Satan has effectively used those ‘Pseudo Christian Book Stores’… to “His Advantage!”
*** (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 God.
*** (2Timothy 4:3-4) 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.
(2Tim 4:4) They will ‘refuse’ to listen to the TRUTH; and will turn to Myths.
*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of the Lord was to them precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken and snared and taken.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) Think of our Lord's patience as salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him.
(2Pet 3:16) He speaks about this subject in all his letters. Some things in them are hard to understand; which ‘ignorant’ and ‘unstable’ people distort; to their own destruction; as they do the rest of the Scriptures.
“Satan ‘knows’ the Bible = Better than ‘You!’–101” …Blog.
Those ‘WHO’ are Truly Born Again… have “God’s Holy Spirit”… Indwelling them…! Christ Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would… lead you into “All TRUTH!” He also said… “His Word is TRUTH!” So just why… would ‘You’ take someone else’s… “Opinion about God’s TRUTH”…? Isn’t what God said in His Holy Word… “Enough?” “Most” will listen to everyone else… and follow some man’s teachings… about the Holy Word of God… “Rather than Knowing God’s Holy Word… for Themselves!” Why then… do you call: the Precious Name of Christ Jesus… and then “NOT Read & Study”… His Holy Word… for yourself…? Did you think… you could earn favor with God… by just knowing About… His Holy Word…? …“NOT!” Knowing about the Bible; God’s Holy Word… is Not enough! Willful ignorance is Not an excuse; that you can make to God…!
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God; a workman that ‘does not’ need to be ashamed; rightly dividing the Word of TRUTH.
(2Tim 2:16) But shun profane, vain babblings; for they will increase to more ungodliness.
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also ‘false’ prophets among the people; even as there will be ‘false’ teachers among you; who secretly will bring in destructive heresies; even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And “MANY” = will follow their pernicious ways; and because of them the way of TRUTH = will be evil spoken of.
*** (Jude 1:3) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation, beloved, I had need to write to you to exhort you; to contend earnestly; for the faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jud 1:4) For certain men crept in secretly; those having been of old previously written into this condemnation, ungodly ones; ‘perverting’ the grace of our God for unbridled lust, and denying the only Master, God, even our Lord Jesus Christ.
Satan & Music - 101 Blog.
Right Away, someone will say… “What about those ‘Teachers’ promised in the Scriptures for the building up of the Saints”…? Did you know that there are… “MORE False Teachers”… than Right Ones…? So how do ‘You’… judge which ones are “Good & True”… and which ones are “False & Liars”… “IF”… you do not know: “God’s Holy Word for Yourself”…? Surely if the clerks in the stores are checking every ‘Money Bill’… for the counterfeit… then the “Least” you can do… is check for the “False Teachers”…? Of course… “IF you are Lazy”… you might Not! Simply put… when we stand before Christ Jesus as our Judge… “HE will NOT Accept”… ‘Our Excuses’…! Did you know that the Psalms was the Song [Hymn] book of Israel…? In reading the Psalms… one will find them full of Good Bible Teaching about God. How about today’s ‘Contemporary Christian Music… will it hold to the “Same Standard”…? … “Absolutely NOT!” Most are “7-11” songs… seven words / repeated over & over again / eleven times.
*** (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.
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me; as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now He said this about the [Holy] Spirit; Whom those who were believing in Him were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was not yet present; because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
*** (John 16:13-14-15) However, when He, the Spirit of TRUTH, has come; He will guide you into All TRUTH. For He shall not speak of Himself; but whatever He hears; He shall speak. And He will announce to you things to come.
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me; for He will receive of Mine and will announce it to you.
(John 16:15) All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and will announce it to you.
*** (John 15:1-2-3) I [Jesus] am the True Vine, and My Father [God] is the Vinedresser.
(John 15:2) Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit; He takes away. And every one that bears fruit; He prunes it so that it may bring forth: more fruit.
(John 15:3) Now you are clean through the WORD; which I [Jesus] have spoken to you.
The Anointing – 101 [Blog about the Holy Spirit]
GOD the Father… gives to those who are His… “His Holy Spirit [Romans 8:9]”… so that through His Holy Word… they may know Him…! Think of things this way…? You are trapped on a desert island with “Only a Bible!” There are No Christian Book Stores; No Christian radio stations; and No Christian Music. You ‘only’ have the Holy Word of God…! “Did I say… Only?” What more do you need to know about God… than His Holy Word… taught to You … by “His Indwelling Holy Spirit”… Who lives in You…? The Will of God = Always Equals = His Holy Word! “Nothing More”… “Nothing Less”…! Do you want to… “Know the Mind of Christ”…? Well then… “Know–His Holy Word!”
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh; by the WORD of the LORD.
*** (Deuteronomy 29:29) The secret things belong to Jehovah our God; but the revealed things belong to us and to our sons forever, so that we may do all the words of this Law.
*** (1Corinthains 2:10-to-14) But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.
(1Cor 2:11) For who among men knows the things of a man except the spirit of man within him? So also no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.
(1Cor 2:12) But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit from God, so that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) These things we also speak; not in words which man's wisdom teaches; but which the Holy Spirit teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
(1Cor 2:14) But the natural man ‘does not’ receive the things of the Spirit of God; for they are ‘foolishness’ to him; neither can he ‘know’ them; because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (Philippians 2:5-to-11) For let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
(Philip 2:6) Who, being in the form of God; thought it not robbery to be equal with God,
(Philip 2:7) but made Himself of no reputation; and took upon Himself the form of a ‘servant’, and was made in the likeness of men.
(Philip 2:8) And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became ‘obedient’ unto death, even the death of the cross.
(Philip 2:9) Therefore God has highly exalted Him, and has given Him a name which is above every name,
(Philip 2:10) that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of heavenly ones, and of earthly ones, and of ones under the earth;
(Philip 2:11) and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
*** (John 8:29-to-32) And He [God] Who sent Me [Jesus] is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone; for I ‘always’ do; those things which ‘please’ Him.
(John 8:30) As He spoke these words, many believed upon Him.
(John 8:31) Then Jesus said to the Jews who believed on Him, If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.
(John 8:32) And you shall know the TRUTH; and the TRUTH shall make you free.
*** (2Corinthains 10:5-6) pulling down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God; and bringing into captivity ‘every thought’; into the obedience of Christ;
(2Cor 10:6) and having readiness to avenge [Proverbs 28:13] all disobedience; when your obedience [1John 1:5-to-10] is fulfilled.
*** (Joh 17:17) Sanctify them through Your TRUTH. Your Word is TRUTH.
*** (1John 5:6) This man, Jesus Christ, is the one who came by water and blood-not with water only, but with water and with blood. The Spirit is the one who verifies this; because the Spirit is the TRUTH.
So where do you go from here…? Examine your ‘practice’ and what you are doing in your Spiritual life…? Start feeding yourself with God’s Holy Word and leave off those things & teaching… that do not hold to the “Complete Authority of The WORD”…!
*** (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’… TV, Computer, Radio, or Cell Phone...?
*** (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.
