“The Holy Spirit & ‘Pentecost’ – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

“The Holy Spirit & ‘Pentecost’ – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

*** (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].

*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple; and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = ‘above’ = all Your name. [God’s Holy Word is Above His Holy Name!]

*** (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.

*** (Hebrews 5:11) We have much to say about this; but it is difficult to explain; because, you have become too lazy to understand.

Those ‘Who’ Truly Love Jesus… spend ‘dedicated’ time in the… “Reading & Study”… of His Holy Word! The “Others” don’t… but ‘Only’ say they Love Him. Say it isn’t so…? Why have so very many said that they have been Christian for such a long time… and are “Ignorant” [un-informed] about the Living Holy Word of God…? They simply; ‘Tickle their minds’ with religious ‘songs & ditties’… and then ‘Cannot’ even share the Truth; from His Holy Word! The know ‘Only’ what their Pastor or Church teaches… and “Cannot Defend TRUTH”… with the Holy Word of God! They cannot tell the… “Truth from Lies”… because they do not “Know the Truth”; of God’s Holy Word! Say it isn’t so…? Are ‘You’ more concerned about the ‘Economy’; ‘Who’ the next President will be… or… “The Holy Living Word of God”…? ‘Your’ answer demonstrates… “Who” your True Love = ‘Really Is’…!

*** (Malachi 1:7-8) You, offer ‘defiled’ bread upon My altar; and you say, In what way have we defiled You? In your saying, “The table of the LORD, it is a thing to be despised.”
(Mal 1:8) And if you offer the blind for sacrifice; is it not Evil? [Yes] And if you offer the lame and the sick; is it not Evil? [Yes!] Bring it now to your ‘governor’. Will he accept you, or lift up your face; says Jehovah the LORD of Hosts? [No!]

*** (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].

*** (Jude 1:3-4) Dearly beloved, although I was eager to write to you about the salvation we share; I found it necessary = to write to you = and ‘urge you’ to continue your ‘vigorous defense’ of the Faith = that was passed down to the saints once and for all.
(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.

*** (2Peter 2:1-2) Now there were false prophets among the people; just as there ‘also’ will be false teachers among you; who will ‘secretly’ introduce destructive heresies; and even ‘deny’ the Master who bought them; bringing swift destruction on themselves.
(2Pet 2:2) “MANY People” will follow their immoral ways; and because of them: the way of Truth will be maligned.

“Do ‘You’ know your Bible? – 101”

What happened on the day of “Pentecost”…? Simply open ‘Your’ Bible; and read from the text. “Do Not” try and make it say; “Something it ‘Doesn’t’ Say”…! Also, if you believe the Holy Word of God; you will see that in the book of Acts; God worked differently with ‘Others’ when they “Believed!” “Pentecost” was a ‘onetime’ happening; and is “Not ‘Repeated’ Today!” How, you may say…? Have you ever seen a Believer… with a “Tongue of Fire” on their head; upon their ‘True Belief’ in Christ Jesus…? Do ‘You’ “HEAR” that; “Rushing Mighty Wind” Today…? Does that ‘same situation’ was to occur today… ‘each time’ someone was baptized by the Holy Spirit…? If so, they would have that… “Flame of Fire!” God is ‘No Respecter of Persons’ but works as He only sees fit. He “Killed the Liars”… ‘Ananias & Sapphira’ [Acts 5:1-to-11]… but today there ‘Liars’ are still in the Churches. Many make ‘Cookie Cutter’ statements about “How God Works Today”… and yet they “Do Not Know”… the Scriptures! They simply ‘Pick & Choose’… Bible verses out of context… to prove their own ‘individual’ beliefs! When presented with “Competing ‘Other’ Scriptures”… they then simply call you; “A ‘Heretic’ who does not believe the Bible!”

*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove all things; hold fast to the good.

*** (Acts 2:1-to-4) When the day of Pentecost came; all of them were together in one place.
(Acts 2:2) Suddenly, a sound like the roaring of a mighty windstorm came from heaven and filled the whole house; where they were sitting. [not standing]
(Acts 2:3) They saw tongues like flames of fire that separated; and one ‘rested’ on; ‘each’ of them.
(Acts 2:4) All of them were ‘filled’ with the Holy Spirit; and began to speak in other tongues [language] as the [Holy] Spirit gave them that ability. [Romans 8:9]

*** (Acts 5:9-10-11) Then Peter said to her; How is it that you have agreed together to tempt [Lie to] the [Holy] Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door; and they will carry you out.
(Acts 5:10) Then at once she fell down at his feet and died. And the younger ones found her dead, and, carrying her out; buried her beside her husband.
(Acts 5:11) And great fear [of God] came on ‘All’ the church; and on as ‘many’ as heard these things.

*** (2Peter 1:20-21) First of all, you must understand this: No prophecy in Scripture is a matter of one's own [private] interpretation,
(2Pe 1:21) because, no prophecy ever originated; through a human decision. Instead, men spoke from God; as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

*** (Isa 28:13) But the Word of the LORD Jehovah 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.

*** (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!

Do ‘You’ understand how Salvation; comes about…? Can ‘You’ open your Bible; and share those verses…? When you go for your drivers’ license test or renewal… “There is a Test!” When you apply for citizenship in any country… “There is a Test!” What makes you think… that ‘You’ can believe the way ‘You’ want to about God; and then ‘You’ will “Pass ‘His’ Test”…? Will just ‘Any Belief’ about Christ Jesus… get ‘You’ Salvation & Redemption…? Absolutely Not! Kist “Knowing ‘about’ Him” and His Holy Word, the Bible… “Will ‘Not’: Guarantee Salvation!” How so, ‘You’ may say! The of Matthew 7:21-22-23…! Christ Jesus said to them, “I never knew ‘You’, depart from Me; ‘You’ workers of iniquity [lawlessness]!” Christ Jesus did not say, ‘Few or Some or Many’…? He said …! Those that come to Christ Jesus… “Come to Him–‘Only’–on His Terms! Did ‘You’ come to Him by… “John 7:38-39”…? Why is there such a ‘defection’ from the “True Faith” [Luke 18:8]…? Because; they simply did it… “Their ‘Way’ and… ‘Not’ His Way!”

*** (Matthew 7:13-14) Go in through the ‘narrow’ gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction; and ‘many’ there are; who go in through it.
(Matt 7:14) Because narrow is the gate; and constricted is the way; which leads to [eternal] life; and there are ‘few’ who find it.

*** (John 6:44-45) No one can come to Me [Jesus]; unless the Father [God]; Who has sent Me [Jesus] draw him; and I [Jesus] will raise him up at the last day. [Revelation 20:10-to-15]
(John 6:45) It is written in the Prophets, “And they shall all be taught of God.” Therefore everyone who ‘hears and learns’ from the Father [God]; comes to Me [Jesus].

*** (John 3:19-20-21) And this is the condemnation; that the Light [Christ] has come into the world; and men ‘loved’ darkness; ‘rather’ than the Light; ‘because’ their deeds were evil.
(John 3:20) For everyone who does evil; ‘hates’ the Light [Christ]; and ‘does not’ come to the Light; lest his deeds [works]; should be ‘exposed’.
(John 3:21) But he who practices Truth comes to the Light; so that his works may be revealed, that they exist, having been worked in God.

*** (John 8:12) Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying; “I am the Light of the world. He who ‘follows’ Me; shall ‘not’ walk in darkness; but shall have the light of life”.

*** (Acts 17:30-32) Truly, then, God overlooking the times of ignorance; now He ‘strictly commands’ = all men everywhere = “To Repent”,
(Acts 17:31) because, He [God] has appointed a day; in which He is going to judge the world; in righteousness; by a Man [Jesus]; Whom He [God] appointed; having given ‘proof’ to all; by raising Him [Jesus] from the dead.

Do YOU Present an Unbalanced Gospel…?
Unbalanced – 101 Blog.

*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes!

What else happened on the “Day of Pentecost”…? Much more, which I cannot do justice to in this blog; but will I ‘address’ in the next one. Many ‘falsely’ claim that “Tongues – Known Languages” always accompany the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. There is a ‘gibberish’ practiced in some Churches today; that is “Not” the Tongues–Known Languages – “HEARED” on Pentecost! Why did I say… “HEARD”…? What ‘does’ the Bible Text = “Say”…? Open the Scriptures; and read it for ‘Yourself’… “Please?” The word “Languages” is this text… is the same word translated for ‘Tongues’. It has to be ‘Known Languages’… as it lists ‘Over’ 16 language groups in “Acts 2:8-to-11” Would ‘You’ say… that the Holy Scriptures are Accurate? Obviously, because God cannot Lie = “Numbers 23:18” and His Holy Word is Truth = “John 17:17 & Proverbs 28:9”…!

*** (Act 2:8) And how do we each hear in our own dialect in which we were born?
(Acts 2:9) Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
(Acts 2:10) Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya around Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, “Jews and proselytes”,
(Acts 2:11) Cretans and Arabians; we = “HEAR: = them ‘speaking’; the great things of God; in our own ‘languages’.

*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove all things; hold fast to the good.
