“Earnestly ‘Contending’ for the: ‘True Faith’ – 401”…Blog [4/?]
*** (Jude 1:3-4) 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 [True] Faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some people have slipped in; among you ‘unnoticed’. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
*** (Romans 10:17) Then faith comes from hearing; and hearing by the Word of God.
*** (1Corinthians 9:27) No, I keep on beating my body and making it my slave so that; after I have preached to others; I myself will ‘not’ somehow be disqualified.
*** (Romans 6:16) Do you not know that to whom: you yield yourselves as slaves for obedience; you are slaves to him whom you obey; whether it is of sin to death; or of obedience to righteousness.
*** (James 1:14-15-16) But each one is tempted by his [own] lusts; being drawn away; and seduced by them.
(Jas 1:15) Then when lust has conceived; it brings forth sin. And sin; when it is fully formed; brings forth death.
(Jas 1:16) Do not err; my beloved brothers.
Faith & Fear… Cannot Reside in the Human MIND… at the Same TIME…!
“FAITH – ‘vs’ – ‘Anything Else’ – 101”…Blog.
Contending for the “True Faith”… comes first from ‘within’ your own self! One cannot share the Gospel; unless they ‘wholly’ believe it; first themselves…! Your belief in the “Total Authority”… of the Holy Word of GOD… must be in ‘You FIRST’: in order to truly share it. Would ‘You’ truly want someone to share with ‘You’… the Truth of God’s “Love, Mercy, Grace & Judgment”… It they did “NOT” believe or even ‘understand’ it…? Would ‘You’ allow the Butcher at your local grocery store; to do “Eye Surgery” on ‘You’…? Absolutely NOT! So why then do ‘You’ believe “ANY: TV, Radio or ‘You Tube’ Preacher”… about Christ Jesus and His Holy Word…? Shouldn’t ‘You’ FIRST; check them out; and find out “IF They”: “Wholly & Completely” hold to the “Complete Authority” of God’s Holy Word, the Bible…? Yes, there are some Good Ones there… but Mostly they are “FALSE TEACHERS”…! “IF” you haven’t… ‘Read & Studied’… God’s Holy Word FIRST: how can ‘You’ TEST – ‘Their Teachings’…?
*** (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 God Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
*** (Acts 5:29) And Peter and the apostles answered and said; We ‘ought’ to obey God; rather than men.
*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove ‘all’ things; hold fast to the good.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].
*** (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If = they ‘Do NOT’ speak according TO this Word, = it is because NO light = is in them.
*** (Luke 16:31) And he said to him, If they = “DO NOT” = hear Moses and the Prophets, = they will ‘NOT’ = be persuaded, = even though ‘one’ rose from the dead.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things hard to be understood, = which the unlearned and unstable = Pervert, = as ‘also’ they do the rest of the = “SCRIPTURES”, = to their own destruction.
“Don’t Believe Me – 101”…Blog. [1/2]
Do ‘You’ really think… that Christ Jesus called ‘You’ to be a Soldier; without a “Cost”…? Christ Jesus suffered for the Truth; and ‘You’ will suffer also; as ‘You’ share His Truth with Others! God has given His Holy Spirit… to eternally secure… ‘Your’ salvation; in the Finished Work of Redemption by Christ Jesus…! Don’t ‘You’ think… that ‘You’ should understand that completely; before just sharing Jesus…? Many share their ‘Jesus’… with incomplete understand of “Who He is and What He has done”…! Would you want a Pharmacist mixing your prescription; who does not understand “Chemistry & Biomedical Science”…? When ‘You’ share Jesus… is He the one of ‘Your Denomination’… or… is He, the “Christ JESUS of the Bible”…? Do ‘You’ also understand that; “All Sin”… is a “Violation” of His Holy Law/Word…?
*** (Matthew 12:30) The one who is ‘not’ with Me [Jesus]; is against Me; and the one who ‘does not’ gather with Me; scatters.
*** (Matthew 10:34) Do not think that I [Jesus] came to bring peace on earth. I ‘did not’ come to bring peace; but a sword!
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said; will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart.
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] 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.
*** (1John 3:4) Everyone who keeps living in sin; also ‘practices’ disobedience [lawlessness]. In fact; sin is disobedience [lawlessness].
*** (Matthew 5:48) So be perfect; as your heavenly Father is perfect.
*** (Hebrews 10:18) Now where Remission of these is; = THERE IS = NO MORE = OFFERING FOR SIN.
“It is ‘Finished!’ – 101”…Blog. [1/2]
Here in America… belief in God is: “Only a Cultural Belief!” Our money says, “In God we Trust” but in practice it is “Not So!” Do ‘You’ believe that statement or ‘Not’…? Only Ten Years ago… our country suffered the “9-11” Terrorist Attack! People ‘FLED’ to Churches and they were Overflowing! Yet, within ‘Only’ one year; Churches were empty again! Our nation is now in an “Economic Crisis” and people are simply blaming politics. Has “GOD” even been spoken about… as having “Created this Catastrophe”…? Many will casually mention God; but fewer even recognize that “Jesus is GOD”…! They celebrate ‘Christmas & Easter’… and leave the Lordship of Christ JESUS… “Completely Out” of their “Hearts, Minds and Thoughts”…! To them, He is only the “Baby Jesus or the Jesus on the Cross!” Never is HE… that Lord; Who will Judge All of Mankind… by His Holy Word; the Bible…! Remember, “American Mothers” have ‘Murdered’… “Over 55,000,000–million”… Innocent Babies by Abortion…! We are “NOT” a Christian Nation!
*** (Genesis 4:10) And He [God] said’ What have ‘You’ done? The voice of your brother's blood; cries to Me [God]; from the ground.
*** (Matthew 15:7) You hypocrites! How well did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said,
(Matt 15:8) These people honor Me with their lips; but their hearts are far from Me.
(Matt 15:9) Their worship of Me is empty; because they teach human rules, as doctrines.
*** (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness lifts up a nation; but sin is a curse to any people.
*** (Job 2:9-10) And his wife said to him, Do you still hold to your integrity? Curse God and die!
(Job 2:10) But he said to her, ‘You’ speak as one of the foolish ones speak. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God’ and shall we not [also] receive evil? In all this; Job did not sin with his lips.
*** (Isaiah 45:5-6-7) I am Jehovah the LORD; and there is none else; ‘no’ God besides Me; I clothed you, though you have not known Me;
(Isa 45:6) that they may know from the rising of the sun; and to the sunset; that there is ‘none’ besides Me. I am Jehovah; and there is ‘none’ else;
(Isa 45:7) forming the light and creating darkness; making peace and creating [allowing] evil. I the LORD Jehovah do ‘all’ these things.
*** (Daniel 4:17) This matter is by the decree of the watchers; and the demand by the word of the holy ones; so that the living may know that; the Most High ‘rules’ in the kingdom of men; and gives it to whomever He will; and sets up over it; the ‘lowest’ of men.
*** (John 12:48) 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.
“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
When You ‘Earnestly Contend’ for the “True Faith”… do ‘You’ first believe it; ‘Yourself’…? Can ‘You’ truly believe something; ‘You’ do not understand…? Surely ‘You’ will say, Yes! ‘You’ will say, “I use a Computer and I do not understand Cyberspace!” But will a ‘Computer’… save ‘You’ or anyone from… “Eternal Damnation”…? Absolutely Not! But God’s Truth… found in His Holy Word… “Can!” You ‘must’ know the things of God; before ‘You’ can effetely share; His Truth… and “Not ‘Your’ Opinions!” His Holy Word is Truth… and “Only His Truth”… found in His Holy Word; can save ‘anyone’ from their “SIN/SINS”…!

(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. [Romans 8:9]
(1Cor 2:12) But we have not received the spirit of the world; but the [Holy] 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.
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.
