“The Holy Spirit & ‘Pentecost’ – 401”…Blog. [4/4]
*** (Hosea 4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. ‘Because’ you have rejected knowledge; I [God] will also ‘reject’ you from being priest to Me. Since you have forgotten the Law of your God; I [God] will also forget your sons; even I [God].
*** (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.
*** (1Jn 4:1) Beloved, Stop believing every spirit. Instead; test the spirits to see whether they are from God; = ‘Because’ = Many false prophets have gone out into the world.
As we continue this discussion… of the “Holy Spirit & Pentecost” may I ask…? What percentage of Preachers; teach the ‘Whole’… “Holy Word of God in Context”… “Without” a ‘Denominational Spin?’ “Very Few”…! In a 2006 survey of over: ‘10,000’ “Pastors & Bible school & seminary teachers”… “Only 1/3–one third”… believed in the: “Complete & Absolute Authority” of the Holy Word of God! Where does that ‘leave’ the people; that sit under their ‘Teaching’…? Do ‘You’ take your Bible; and examine what ‘You’ are taught in Church…? How about those sermons on “You Tube”… do ‘You’ examine them; with Your Bible in hand…? And that ‘supposed’ Christian music ‘You’ listen to…? Did ‘You’ know… “Every Song is a Sermon”…? ‘Most’ wrongly believe ‘Everything Called Christian’… they hear and are taught… without FIRST: Checking the Teaching; with the Holy Word of God…! How about ‘You’…” Well… “Do You”…?
*** (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]
*** (2Timothy 2:9) Because of it I am experiencing trouble; even to the point of being chained like a criminal. However; God's Word is ‘not’ b0und.
*** (Acts 20:26-to-30) Therefore I [Paul] testify to you on this day; that I am pure from the blood of all. [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21]
(Acts 20:27) For I ‘did not’ keep back from declaring to you; ‘All’ the counsel of God.
(Acts 20:28) Therefore take heed to yourselves; and to ‘all’ the flock in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers; to feed the church of God; which He has purchased with His own blood.
(Acts 20:29) For I know this; that after my departure grievous wolves shall enter in among you; not sparing the flock.
(Acts 20:30) Also men shall arise [within the Church] from your own selves; speaking perverse things; in order to draw disciples away after them. [2Corinthains 11:13-14-15]
*** (Isaiah 24:2) And as it is with the people, so it shall be with the pastor; = as with the servant, so with the master; = as with the handmaid, so it is with her mistress; = as with the buyer, so with the seller; = as with the lender, so with the borrower; = as with the creditor, so with the debtor.
*** (Joh 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus]; and ‘does not’ receive My Words; has One, Who ‘judges’ him; the Word that I [Jesus] have spoken; the ‘same’ shall judge him in the Last Day. [Revelation 20:15-to-20]
Now, what about ‘Tongues’… on the day of “Pentecost”…? If ‘You’ will remember from the first blog… those over “16–known languages” were “Heard”… by each man in his own “Native language & dialect”. Here in America, most do not speak other Languages. Yes, some of the Hispanic; know both ‘Spanish & English’. In Europe however, most know several languages. So it was in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. The Word “Tongues” in the English Bible is translated from the NT Greek word for: “Known Languages!” Oh yes, NT Greek; agrees in “Person, Number & Gender”. For an example: In Revelation 14:4… those ‘Preaching’ during the Great Tribulation are All; Male Jewish Virgins! The word “Pastor” in the NT is always in the “Male Gender”… “Negating those ‘False’ Claims” by women; who ‘Falsely’ call themselves; ‘Preachers & Pastors’…!
*** (Romans 12:4) For as we have many members in one body; and ‘All’ members have = “NOT” = the same office:
Are Women to Teach [Lead] in the Church…?
*** (James 3:1) Not many of you should become teachers; my brothers; because you know that we who teach; will be ‘judged’ more severely.
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word; and ‘NOT’ merely hearers; who ‘DECEIVE’ themselves.
Do ‘You’ attend a Church… that practices “Tongues – [known Languages]? Did ‘You’ know… that there are ‘Tongues’ being practiced… in “MOST” of the “False Religions” all over the ‘World’? “ALL Major ‘False’ World Religions’ have ‘Tongues’ in their religious services. That is ‘Not’ to say All: in Each and Every Service! The Shinto in Japan, = the Islamic in most of Asia, = the African Tribal Religions, = the Buddhist monks = and the list goes ‘ON’ and ‘On’ and ‘on!’ Now, is it the Holy Spirit… giving those “Languages = Tongues”: in those “Heathen ‘False’ Religions”…? “Absolutely Not!” Are there ‘Women’ speaking in your Church… in ‘Public’? Are there; “Women Tongue Speakers” in your Church…?
*** (1Corinthians 14:33-34-35) for God is not a God of disorder; but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,
(1Cor 14:34) the WOMEN must keep ‘silent’ in the churches. They are ‘NOT’ allowed to speak out; but must place themselves in submission; as the law also says.
(1Cor 14:35) If they want to learn anything; they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is inappropriate for a ‘WOMAN’ = to speak out in church.
Tongues, Pastor John
This is a Bible Teaching Link… to a ‘22-part’ teaching series on Tongues. If you ‘Truly’ want to know the Truth about the “Holy Spirit gift of Languages”… perhaps listen to this teaching. Pastor John is fluent in “OT Hebrew & NT Greek”. Are there ‘Other Instructions’ in God’s Holy Word… about the Practice of Tongues [Real Languages]…? In the mixed multitude of the early Church; Language groups were Present. A Foreigner not knowing the current dialect or language of the one Preaching… was able to Hear the Gospel… in His Own Native Language. That is the “True Gift of Tongues” = Known Languages = as in the Early Church age. Were there “Any True Seekers of God”… were ever…“Left Behind!” “Absolutely NOT”…!
“NONE = Left Behind – 101”…Blog [1/2]
*** (1Corinthains 14:27-28) If anyone speaks in a tongue; ‘only’ two or three at the most should do so; “One at a Time” and somebody ‘Must’ interpret.
(1Cor 14:28) If an interpreter is ‘Not’ present; he should “Remain Silent” in the church and speak to himself and God.
Holy Spirit Conviction - 101
*** (Jeremiah 29:13) And you shall seek Me [God] and find Me; when you search for Me with ‘all’ your heart.
*** (John 6:44) No one can come to Me [Jesus]; unless the Father [God]; Who has sent Me draw him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

*** (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.

(Joh 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 [Jesus]; ‘shall not’ walk in darkness; but shall have the ‘Light of life’. [Romans 8:9]
“Growing ‘Spiritually?’ – 101”…Blog.
Please take some time to ‘Study’… these Bible verses. One important lesion I have learned is that… “Un–Learning is a part of True Learning!” God has enabled ‘His True Children’… to practice: “Proverbs 28:13 & 1John 1:5-to-10” Remember we were all born… “Ignorant–Un– Informed! By age ‘2 or 3’… we have a grasp of the Language of our Family. It is the same with the True Family of God. They ‘Hear & Know’… “His Holy Word”…! Did ‘You’ meet with Him; in His Holy Word… before You turned on your… “Phone” or “Computer” or “TV”…? Just Who is first in your Life…? Is it “Him”… or “All these Others”…?
*** (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.
*** (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.
(Jeremiah 9:23-24) So says Jehovah the Lord; Do not let the wise glory in his wisdom, nor let the mighty glory in his might; do not let the rich glory in his riches;
(Jer 9:24) but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me; that I am Jehovah, doing kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth; for in these I delight, says the LORD.
(Micah 6:8) He [God] 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?
