“Why do you ‘Believe’… – 101”…Blog.
*** (Jeremiah 39:18) For I will surely deliver you; and you shall not fall by the sword; but your life shall be as a prize to you; ‘because’ you have put your trust in Me [God], says the Lord.
… “What ‘You’ Believe”…? Have you ever thought about “IT”…? Is it because you have heard what you believe in Church…? Or from a Pastor; or from a good Friend…? Or do you “Know these Facts”… because you ‘Read & Believed’ them… from the Holy Word of God…? My quiet time this week has been in the Bible book of ‘Jeremiah’. When was the last time… You ‘Read & Studied’… the Old Testament…? The Bible is ‘not’ just 66 books bound in a single volume. It is a revelation of God’s working with His… ‘Creation & Creatures’… so that many may ‘know’ that “GOD is God–Alone [Isaiah 44:6]!” His Truth, Wisdom, Statutes, Precepts are available for all that would truly… seek God… “Who allows ALL”… ‘According to His Divine Purposes’…!
*** (Romans 15:4-to-6) For whatever things were written before were written for our learning; so that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.
(Rom 15:5) And may the God of patience and consolation; grant you to be ‘like minded’ toward one another according to Christ Jesus,
(Rom 15:6) so that with ‘one mind’ and ‘one mouth’ you may glorify God; even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
*** (Deuteronomy 29:29) The ‘secret’ things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are ‘revealed’; belong unto us and to our children for ever; that we may do ‘all’ the words of this Law.
*** (Psalms 19:7-to-14) The Law of The Lord is perfect; converting the soul; the testimony of The Lord is sure; making the simple wise.
(Psa 19:8) The Precepts of The Lord are right; rejoicing the heart; the Commandments of The Lord are pure; giving light to the eyes.
(Psa 19:9) The fear of The Lord is clean; enduring forever; the judgments of The Lord are true and righteous altogether,
(Psa 19:10) more to be desired than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
(Psa 19:11) And Your servant is warned by them; in keeping them there is great reward.
(Psa 19:12) Who can understand his errors? Oh make me pure from secret faults;
(Psa 19:13) and keep Your servant back from presumptuous sins; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be upright, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
(Psa 19:14) Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
*** (1Corinthians 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.
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
Did you ever ‘study’ in school… just enough to pass a test? You used your rote memory… to learn facts… to pass that test. So today, many people are ‘crippled’… with that same mentality; when it comes to the things of the Lord & His Holy Word; the Bible…! Someone recently asked me… “Do ‘You’ believe that Jesus is God?” My response was… “What I ‘believe’ or ‘not believe’… makes ‘absolutely’ no difference… “He Jesus says He is God”; in His Holy Word the Bible!” They simply wanted a… ‘Yes or No’ answer! Many Christians today… have a list called: ‘The Statement of Faith.’ It is a list of things they; ‘Say’ they believe… ‘But Could Not’… Defend their beliefs in a court! We will ‘All’ stand before God; to be ‘judged & rewarded’! Some will have their reward in “Heaven with Jesus”… and some will have their reward; in the Lake of Fire! There they will be tormented; day & night… forever & forever…!
*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If ‘anyone’ does not love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes!
*** (1Timothy 5:24-25) Some men's sins are ‘open’ beforehand; going before to judgment. And some they also ‘follow’ after.
(1Ti 5:25) Likewise ‘also’ the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and those who are otherwise ‘cannot’ be hidden.
*** (2Corinthains 5:10) For we must ‘All’ appear before the judgment seat of Christ’ so that ‘each one’ may receive the things done through the body; according to that which he has done; whether ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
*** (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’.
*** (John 12:48-49-50) He who ‘rejects’ Me [Jesus] 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.
(John 12:49) For I have ‘not’ spoken of Myself; but the Father [God] Who sent Me [Jesus]; gave Me a ‘command’; what I should ‘say’, and what I should ‘speak’.
(John 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’.
“Grace Away Sin – 101”…Blog.
Today in America… the ‘Church’; has left off… ‘Reading & Studying’… God’s Holy Word; the Bible! “MANY” who ‘call’ the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus… and who ‘say’ they belong to Him… ‘Could Not’… open their Bibles; and defend ‘what’ they believe! “IF”… it were a crime to be a True Believer… could you defend your Faith… with God’s Holy Word; “Chapter & Verse”…? If you cannot… Why Not…? Or is your “Faith in God”… just a ‘head belief’… and ‘One’… You are “Not Willing to Die For”…? The Real Church of Christ Jesus… is made up of ‘All’ those who are… “Truly Born Again by His Holy Spirit”… “Is NOT”… a Church Denomination…! They are the “Bride of Christ”… the “Body of Christ”… His Church…!
*** (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 the Lord.
*** (Romans 8:8-to-11) So then they who are in the flesh ‘cannot’ please God.
(Rom 8:9) But you are not in the flesh; but in the Spirit; if the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone has not the Spirit of Christ, he is = ‘none’ = of His.
(Rom 8:10) And if Christ is in you; indeed the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
(Rom 8:11) But if the Spirit of the One [God]; Who ‘raised up’ Jesus from the dead; ‘dwells’ in you: the One who raised up Christ from the dead: shall ‘also’ make your mortal bodies alive; by His [Holy] Spirit: Who ‘dwells’ in you.
*** (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 [God].
(2Tim 2:16) But shun profane, vain babblings; for they will ‘increase’ to more ungodliness.
*** (2Timothy 3:12-to-17) Yea, and ‘All’ who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus; will be persecuted.
(2Ti 3:13) But evil men and seducers will ‘go forward’ to worse; ‘deceiving’ and ‘being deceived’.
(2Ti 3:14) But continue in the things that you have learned; and have been assured of; knowing from Whom [John 16:13-14-15]; you have learned them,
(2Ti 3:15) and that from a child; you have known the Holy Scriptures; which are able to make you wise to salvation; through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Ti 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed; and is ‘Profitable’ for Doctrine; for Reproof; for Correction; for Instruction in Righteousness,
(2Ti 3:17) that the man of God; may be ‘perfected’; thoroughly ‘furnished’ to every good work.
*** (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’.
(2Tim 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.
(2Tim 4:4) And they will ‘turn away’ their ears from the Truth; and will be ‘turned’ to myths [fables].
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them; whether they will hear; or whether they will forbear [resist]; for they are rebellious.
*** (Jer 1:8) Do not be afraid of their faces; for I am with you to deliver you; says the Lord Jehovah.
“What is the… ‘Church’ – 101” …Blog. [1/2]
Where do “You”… go from ‘Here’…? That is between… “You & God”…! I am “NOT” the Bible Police… nor do I want to be. ‘You’… simply start over again… in your ‘walk’ with Christ Jesus… in His Holy Word; the Bible…! “Confess & Forsake” [Proverbs 28:13]… and “Confess [1John 1:5-to-10] your “Laxity”… about His Kingdom and His Work… “He” would have you to do…!
*** (Luke 17:10) So likewise you; when you shall have done ‘all the things’ commanded you, say; We are ‘unprofitable’ servants; for we have done what we ‘ought to do’.
*** (2Corinthians 5:18) And all things are of God; Who has ‘reconciled’ us to Himself through Jesus Christ; and has ‘given to us’ - the ‘ministry of reconciliation’;
(2Cor 5:19) whereas God was in Christ; ‘reconciling’ the world to Himself; not imputing their trespasses to them; and ‘putting’ the word [testimony] of ‘reconciliation’ in us.
(2Cor 5:20) Then we are ‘ambassadors’ on behalf of Christ; as God ‘exhorting’ through us; we beseech you on behalf of Christ; ‘be reconciled’ to God.
(2Cor 5:21) For He [God] has made Him [Jesus]; Who knew no sin; to be sin for us; that we ‘might become’ the righteousness of God in Him [Christ Jesus].
Love; in Christ, Roger / Ezekiel 3:18-to-21.
