“Earnestly ‘Contending’ for the: ‘True Faith’ – 501”…Blog [5/5]
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them; whether they will hear or whether they will forbear; for they are [most] rebellious.
*** (Jeremiah 1:8) Do ‘not’ be afraid of their faces; for I am ‘with you’ to deliver you, says Jehovah the LORD. [Exodus 14:14]
*** (1Peter 3:13-14-15) Who will harm you; if you are devoted to doing what is good?
(1Pet 3:14) But even if you should ‘suffer’ for doing what is right; you are ‘blessed’. Never be afraid of their threats; and never get upset.
(1Pet 3:15) Instead; exalt Christ as Lord in your hearts. Always be prepared; to give a defense; to everyone who asks you; to explain ‘the hope’ you have. [Colossians 1:27]
*** (Micah 6:8) He has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?
“Growing ‘Spiritually?’ – 101”…Blog.
Where do ‘You’ go from here…? Did ‘You’ think things would get better; the closer we are to “Christ’s Return”…? This is where; knowing the Scriptures, the Holy Word of God; gives us “True Faith!” Recently I renewed my drivers’ license and auto tag; ‘on line!’ They even used my 7 year old picture! Surely I have not aged that much? Seriously now, I can remember when the Bible was read in ‘Public School’; and there was a ‘Morning Prayer’. Today, public school teachers are having Sex… with their students… and getting away with in Court! Did ‘You’ really think it would be easier… to share the Gospel…? Many people believe in Jesus… but ‘Not’ the Christ Jesus of the Bible [John 7:37-38]. “Easy Believe-ism” seems to have taken over; where ‘Study of the Scriptures’ once was! Today people will believe almost “Anything”… even ‘Vampires & Zombies & Werewolves’. Fifty Years of Science Fiction… has replaced “Rational Thought & Validity!”

*** (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!
*** (Luke 17:26-27) Just as it was in the days of Noah; so it will be in the days of the Son of Man.
(Luke 17:27) People were eating, drinking, marrying; and being given in marriage right up to the day when Noah went into the ark. Then the flood came; and destroyed ‘all’ of them.
*** (Genesis 6:5) And the Lord GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth; and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart; was ‘only evil’ continually.
*** (Matthew 24:24-25) For false Christs’ and false prophets will appear; and display great signs and wonders [miracles] to deceive; if possible, even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Remember, I [Jesus] have told you this; beforehand.
*** (2Corinthains 11:4) For if someone comes along and preaches another Jesus; than the one we preached; or should you receive a different spirit; from the one you received; or a different gospel; from the one you accepted; you are all too willing to listen.

*** (Proverbs 30:4) ‘WHO’ has gone up to Heaven and has come down? ‘WHO’ has gathered the wind in His fists? ‘WHO’ has bound the waters in His garments? ‘WHO’ has established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name [The LORD Jehovah]; and what is His Son's Name [Christ Jesus]? Surely ‘You’ know…?
*** (2Kings 17:32-33) So they feared Jehovah the LORD; and made to themselves; of the lowest of them; [false] priests of the high places; who sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places [foreign gods].
(2Ki 17:33) They feared Jehovah the LORD; and Served their ‘own’ gods; according to the custom of the nations whom they removed from there.
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.

*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone ‘does not’ love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes [Again]!
Too ‘Many’ have “Thrown OUT”… the Law of God…! They have “Excused Away”… SIN/SINS… and said, “We are ‘ALL’… are under Grace”…! They have made the God of the Bible ‘impotent’ & ‘sitting on the sidelines!’ What they have “FAILD to Say”… is that Justification before God; is “ONLY” for those of His… who are Truly Born Again; and have “His ‘Indwelling’ Presence”… by His Holy Spirit…! Even “Christians are Judged Today”… when they “Violate God’s LAW”…! But this “Spanking–Chastening” comes from HIM directly… and not from the body of Christ! Remember in the OT, people were ‘Stoned’ or “Judged directly by God!” Did ‘You’ miss… “Leviticus 10;1-2” & “Numbers 16:29-to-35”…? Or in the NT… “Acts 5:1-to-11” & “1Corinthians 5:1-to-7” & “1Corinthains 11:30”…? Could it be… ‘You’… “Do Not Know = ‘Your’ Bible”…?
“Do ‘You’ know your Bible? – 101”
*** (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 [The Holy Word of GOD].
*** (1Corinthains 6:5) For I speak to your ‘shame’. Is it so that there; is Not a wise ‘one’ among you; Not even ‘one’ in your midst; who shall be able to judge between his brother?
“Christians ‘Talk’ about LOVE – 101”…Blog.
*** (Hebrews 10:28-to-31) Anyone who violates the law of Moses dies without mercy: “On the testimony of two or three witnesses.”
(Heb 10:29) How much more severe a punishment do you think that person deserves who tramples on God's Son; treats as common; the blood of the covenant by which it was sanctified, and insults the Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know the One [God] Who said, “Vengeance belongs to Me; I will pay them back,” and again, “The Lord ‘will judge’ His people."
(Heb 10:31) It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
*** (1Peter 4:17-18) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us; what will be the end of those; disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved; where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
*** (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.
*** (1Corinthains 3:11-to-16) After all, no one can lay any other foundation; than the one that is already laid; and that is Jesus Christ.
(1Cor 3:12) Whether a person builds on this foundation; with gold, silver, expensive stones, wood, hay, or straw,
(1Cor 3:13) the workmanship of each person will become evident; for the day will show what it is; because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work.
(1Cor 3:14) If what a person has built on the foundation survives; he will receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If his work is burned up, he will suffer loss. However, he himself will be saved; but it will be like going through fire.
(1Cor 3:16) You know that you are God's sanctuary; and that God's Spirit [Romans 8:9] lives in you; don't you?
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you ‘do not’ know the Truth; but ‘because’ you do know it; and ‘because’ = No Lie comes from The Truth.
*** (John 14:6) Jesus said to him; I am the Way; the Truth; and the Life; ‘no one’ comes to the Father [God] but by Me [Jesus].
May I ask ‘You’ a question…? When was the Last Time: You read, “John 17:All” & “Romans 8:All”…? John chapter “17” is what Christ Jesus; prayed over ‘2,000–years’ ago: for “Each of Us”; that are His…! It is the ‘True Lord’s Prayer’… for US! Romans chapter “8”… shows us our “True Position in Christ”; and our relationship to “God as Abba Father”; and our joint son ship and heirs of Christ! Perhaps it is time; for ‘You’ to read “Both those chapters”…?
*** (2Corinthains 13:5) [continually] examine yourselves; whether you are in the [True] Faith; ‘Prove’ your own selves. Do you not know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you; unless you are reprobates?
*** (1Jn 4:4) You are of God, little children; and you have overcome them; because He: Who is in you: is ‘greater’ than he who is in the world.

*** (Romans 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.
*** (1Jn 5:10-to-13) He who believes on the Son of God; has the witness in himself. He who ‘does not’ believe God; has made Him a Liar; because he ‘does not; believe the record that God gave of His Son.
(1Jn 5:11) And this is the record; that God has given to us everlasting life; and this life is in His Son.
(1Jn 5:12) He who ‘has’ the Son ‘has’ life; he who ‘does not’ have the Son of God; ‘does not’ have life.
(1Jn 5:13) I have written these things to you; who ‘believe’ on the Name of the Son of God [Christ Jesus] that you ‘may know’; that you ‘have’ everlasting life; and that you may ‘believe’ on the Name of the Son of God [Christ Jesus].
*** (Hebrews 5:11) We have much to say about this; but it is ‘difficult’ to explain; because you have become; too lazy to understand.
Isn’t it about Time – 101 ?
*** (Hebrews 9:14) how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God; cleanse our consciences from dead works; so that we may serve the living God!
