“Letting ‘GO’ of Self – 101” …Blog.
*** (2Corinthains 6:14-to-18) Stop becoming unevenly yoked with unbelievers. What partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? [None!] What fellowship can light have with darkness? [None!]
(2Cor 6:15) What harmony exists between Christ and Beliar; or what do a believer and an unbeliever; have in common? [Nothing!]
(2Cor 6:16) What agreement can a temple of God make with idols? [None!] For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said: “I will live and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
(2Cor 6:17) Therefore, “Get away from them and separate yourselves from them,” declares the Lord, “and don't touch anything unclean. Then I will welcome you.
(2Cor 6:18) I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters,” declares the Lord Almighty.
*** (Deuteronomy 23:18) You shall not bring the hire of a whore [prostitute]; or the price of a dog; into the house of the LORD your God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being ‘Doers’ of the WORD; and ‘Not’ merely hearers; who “Deceive” themselves. [Luke 6:46]
Surely ‘You’ have had to let something ‘GO’… in your life? Recently a friend of mine; had to let go of a “Teddy Bear!” This friend of hers; said “He was Christ Jesus!” Sounds like “Matthew 24:24” is coming to fulfillment! Anyone falsely claiming to be JESUS; is surely a “Deceived Liar!” She had to break off her friendship; and “Obey 2John 1:9-10-11!” Surely ‘You’ remember the ‘David Koresh’ of the Branch Dividians of Waco Texas! How about ‘Jim Jones’ of Guiana…? These False Jesus’… can be seen though world history! But did ‘You’ notice their ‘Methodology & Agenda’… is “Always the Same”…? They always ‘Supersede’ the Holy Word of GOD… and ‘Substitute’ their own teachings! Too many, who call the “Blessed Name of Christ JESUS” are… so very ignorant… of the Word! Yes, Ignorance; defined as “Un-Informed” has lead many down the wrong path! Do ‘You’… ‘Read & Study’… The Holy Word of GOD… “Daily?” “If Not”… “Why Not”…? How much easier is it; to be “Deceived”… when ‘You’ Really Don’t Know… “God’s Truth”…?
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out; our inner man is being renewed: day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]
*** (1Corinthains 14:38) But if any is [willingly] Ignorant; let him be Ignorant.
*** (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.
(2Tim 2:16) But shun profane, vain babblings; for they will increase to more ungodliness.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
“Earnestly ‘Contending’ for the: ‘True Faith’ – 101”…Blog [1/5]
*** (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.
Many times we ‘make’… our own “Undoing!” God has already given us all the instructions we need; in His Holy Word: “The Bible!” [Matthew 4:4 & Luke 4:4] Those who are ‘willingly ignorant’ of the Word… are also ‘Fearful’ of being told to… “Keep the Word!” Because they “Cannot Understand Salvation & ‘ALL’ its Implications”… they ‘shun’ the Word! But they do know the latest fashions… Videos & Movies; and Yes, even the latest “Phone Aps”…! All they can rely on… is somebody’s “You Tube Video or Internet link”. They cannot open their own Bible… and tell ‘You’ what it says! They ‘cannot’ discuss with anyone; the “Practical Applications of Salvation”…? Yet they say that they have… “Known JESUS”… for more than “10+ years”…! “What is ‘Wrong’ with that… Picture”…?
*** (1Corinthains 2:10-to-14) But God has revealed those things to us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything; even the deep things of God. [John 14:26-27]
(1Cor 2:11) Is there anyone who can understand his own thoughts except by his own inner spirit? In the same way; no one can know the thoughts of God except God's Spirit. [Romans 8:9]
(1Cor 2:12) Now, we have not received the spirit of the world; but the [Holy] Spirit; Who comes from God; so that we can understand the things; that were freely given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) We don't speak about these things in words taught us by human wisdom; but in words taught by the Spirit; as we explain spiritual things to spiritual people.
(1Cor 2:14) A person who isn't spiritual [Born Again]; doesn't accept the things of God's Spirit; for they are ‘nonsense’ to him. He can't understand them; because they are spiritually evaluated.
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this; but it is difficult to explain; because you have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact; though by now you should be teachers; you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk; instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk; is still a baby; and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people; whose minds are trained by practice; to distinguish; good from evil. [Isaiah 5:20]
*** (2Timothy 3:5-6-7) They will hold to an outward form of godliness; but deny its power. Stay away from such people.
(2Tim 3:6) For some of these men go into homes; and deceive foolish women; who are burdened with sins; and swayed by all kinds of desires.
(2Tim 3:7) These women are always studying; but are never able to arrive; at a full knowledge of the Truth.
*** (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.
Isn’t it about Time – 101 ?
“NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, the Holy Word of God... “Unless”… ‘They are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with… “His Holy Word”...!"
*** (Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah the LORD is limited; if these are His doings. Do not My Words do good; to him who walks uprightly?
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them; whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for they are rebellious. [Jeremiah 1:8]
“Which ‘Jesus’ is your ‘Jesus’ – 101” …Blog.
And “NO”… I am not condemning You…! Nor, am I poking fun at ‘You’ either…! “IF” you were to see a; “65-year old” in Church; sucking on a “Baby Bottle”… what would ‘You’… “Think”…? That is simply a “Word Picture”… of those who ‘Say’ they have been ‘Born Again’ by God’s Holy Spirit… and “Are Still Spiritual Babies”…! When the ‘Jehovah Witness’ or ‘Mormon’… comes to their door: they ‘pretend’ they are not home! That is a sorry picture; of the “Army of Christ Jesus”…! Is that what Christ has called ‘You’… For?
Is… “JESUS”… First… in ‘YOUR’ Life…?
*** Did YOU open Your BIBLE... and Meet with Christ JESUS in His “HOLY WORD”... = BEFORE = ‘YOU’... Turned on ‘Your’… TV, Computer, Radio, or Cell Phone...?
*** (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.
“Do ‘YOU’ = Love ‘Jesus’ – 101” …Blog.
Ok, so I have had my say… and ‘NOW’… “YOU” are responsible for your response! What will it be…? Will ‘You’ start to put aside “Time for Jesus and His Holy Word”…? Or will you practice to be the “Status Quo”… and continue in your ‘Spiritual Infancy’…? The choice is ‘Only Yours’…!
*** (Jeremiah 12:5) If you have run with footmen, and they wore you out, then how can you compete with horses? And if you feel secure in the land of peace, then how will you do in the swelling of the Jordan?
*** (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.
“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
*** (Matthew 13:12) For whoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance. But whoever does not have, from him shall be taken away even that which he has.
*** (2Corinthains 13:5) examine yourselves; whether you are in the faith; prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you [Romans 8:9]; unless you are reprobates?
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again; he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
