“Have ‘You’ learned – “Obedience?” – 101” …Blog
*** (Luke 22:42) saying, Father [God]; if You are willing; remove this cup [The Cross]; from Me [Jesus]. Yet ‘not’ My will; but Yours be ‘done’.
*** (Hebrews 5:7-8) For Jesus, in the days of His flesh; when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong cryings and tears [Luke 22:42]; to Him [God]; Who was able to save Him [Jesus] from death; and was heard in that He feared [God],
(Heb 5:8) though being a Son; yet He [Jesus] –> “Learned Obedience” <– by the things which He suffered. [Zechariah 12:10]
*** (1Corinthains 5:7) Therefore purge out the old leaven [lifestyle] so that you may be a new lump [the Body of Christ]; as you are unleavened. For also, –> “Christ our Passover” <– is sacrificed for us.
While on a plane flying for business… a Personal Manager of a ‘Fortune 500’ company sat next to me. We shared pleasantries and discussed our work history. She told me that “Most Employees” who were ‘Terminated’ had… “Violated” their corporate written ‘Internet policy’! Yes, even after their ‘yearly’ training seminars. Somehow, even “The Law” cannot control mankind; especially when they “Wrongly Think”; that they are getting away with it! Today, many who say they are “Christian”… do the same thing; to the Holy Word of God! They are claiming they are… “Under Grace” and Not under the Law! They “Purposely Miss”… that the “Levitical System” for Daily Sacrifice for Sin… has been replaced with: the “Finished Work of Redemption” by Christ Jesus! It is the: “One Sacrifice for All Sin for All Time!” But that has ‘nothing’ to do with our; ‘Daily Obedience’ to His Holy Word. We still remain “Totally Responsible”… for our “Disobedience” to His Holy Word! Because we are not immediately ‘Chastened’ [Spanked] by God… we wrongly think… we ‘got away’ with ‘Sin!’ May I simply ask “You?” Have ‘You’ read both: “Leviticus and Hebrews” in your Bible? Do this and ‘You’ will begin to understand “Christian Obedience!” What are those called… that “Violated” their written Internet Policy…? Simply… “Unemployed!” …LOL! Christ Jesus learned “Obedience”… why then as His child; would ‘You’ think that… “You did not have to”…?
*** (Hebrews 10:18) Now where Remission of these is; = There Is = ‘NO MORE’ = “OFFERING -> for SIN”.
“It is ‘Finished!’ – 101”…Blog. [1/2]
*** (Romans 15:4) For everything that was written long ago; was written for our ‘Instruction’; so that we might have, ‘Hope’ through the ‘Endurance’ and ‘Encouragement’; that the “Scriptures” give us. [Psalms 19:7-to-11 -&- Pslams119:97-to-104]
*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses; You speak with us, and we will hear. But let not God speak with us; lest we die.
(Exodus 20:20) And Moses said to the people, Do not fear, for God has come –> to test you <– and so that His fear [Fear of God]; may be before your faces; so that you may ‘Not’ Sin. [Deuteronomy 18:13 & Matthew 5:48]

*** (1Jn 3:4) Everyone who ‘practices’ Sin; also ‘practices’ Lawlessness; for Sin is Lawlessness.
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do “You” call Me [Jesus]; Lord, Lord; and “Do Not Do” what I [Jesus] say?
*** (Hebrews 13:20-21) Now the God of peace [Jehovah Shalom – Judges 6:24]; that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus [John 10:17-18]; that Great Shepherd [Christ Jesus] of the sheep; through the blood of the ‘everlasting’ covenant,
(Heb 13:21) Make you ‘perfect’ in every good work; to do His will [Word]; working in you [Ephesians 2:10] that which is well pleasing in His sight; through Jesus Christ; to Whom [Only] be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
*** (Romans 6:15-to-18) What then? Shall we sin because we are not under Law, but under grace? “God forbid!” [James 1:13-to-16]
(Rom 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.
(Rom 6:17) But thanks be to our God; that you were [previously] the slaves of sin; but you have obeyed from the heart [Acts 15:8-9]; that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. [John 7:38-39]
(Rom 6:18) Then being made ‘Free’ from Sin [its power & penalty]; you became the slaves of ‘Righteousness’. [in Christ Jesus]
Do ‘You’… “Read & Study”: your Bible…? Or have ‘You’ substituted it with [Pseudo] Christian songs; and You Tube Videos…? If you are Truly Born Again… by God’s Holy Spirit… then He is your: “Adjunct & Teacher”… of all the Truth of His Holy Word! God has “Sealed” those who are His and the Holy Spirit will work with Us… “IF” we will be open to Him; by simple “Obedience!” May I share a simple help…? I have been Born Again for 30+ years; and I still say, “Lord, I don’t understand this verse and its application to my life!” When ‘I’ become… ‘As a Child’… then my Lord can work with ‘Me’. It is just that simple…! Do ‘You’ understand that there are: “Two Types of Forgiveness”…? One is ‘Positional’; our position in Christ Jesus. The other is ‘Experiential’… when we sin; we then “Confess & Forsake”. But “Many” confess: but do not ‘forsake’ that “Sin!” This begs the “Question”… have they ever been: “Really Forgiven”...? Are they really in “Christ Jesus”… or is it ‘Only; in their Head Knowledge; but “Not in their Hearts”…? [Romans 10:9-10 -&- 2Corinthians 3:3-4-5]
*** (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 ‘thinks’ he has.

*** (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]
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your best to present yourself to God; as an ‘approved’ worker; who has nothing to be ashamed of; handling the Word of Truth -> with “Precision”.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them by the Truth. Your Word: is Truth.
*** (Luke 9:46-47-48) Now an argument started among them; as to which of them might be the ‘greatest’.
(Luke 9:47) But Jesus, knowing their ‘inner’ thoughts; took a little child and had him stand beside Him.
(Luke 9:48) Then He [Jesus] said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in My name, welcomes Me; and whoever welcomes Me; welcomes the One [God], Who sent Me. For the one who is least among all of you; is the one who is greatest."
*** (James 1:5-to-8) Now if any of you lacks wisdom; he should ask God; Who gives to everyone generously, without a rebuke; and it will be given to him.
(Jas 1:6) But he must ask in faith; without ‘any’ doubts; for the one who has doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
(Jas 1:7) Such a person should Not expect; to receive ‘anything’ from the Lord.
(Jas 1:8) He is a double-minded man [woman]; unstable in all he [she] undertakes.
*** (Romans 10:17) Consequently, faith comes from listening; and listening comes through the Word of Christ. [Word of God – Matthew 4:4 & Luke 4:4]
Every Truly Born Again Christian… needs to be a ‘Theologian!’ What exactly does that mean…? Did ‘You’ read & understand the about verse… “2Timothy 2:15” …handling the Word of Truth with “Precision”…? You may speak about your “Faith in Christ Jesus”… but can ‘You’ take your Bible… “And Defend IT”…? If ‘You’ cannot; then just perhaps what ‘You’ have is… “NOT”: “Saving Faith” Many share about Jesus… but do ‘not’ really know; ‘What’ the Bible teaches about Him! Please don’t tell anyone about Christ Jesus… UNLESS ‘You’ can back it up with His Holy Word! Many mix “Half-Truths” which are “Lies!” They take only a portion of the Bible… and mix it with their ‘Wrong Opinions!’ It seems like Truth… but it is “Really A LIE!” Satan and His Workers are in Your Church…! Say it isn’t SO…? If ‘You’ -> “Do Not Know: The Scriptures”… how then can ‘You’ tell…? ‘You’ can’t…! Many share Christ… without telling the ‘Complete Message!’ [Amos 8:11 & Isaiah 28:13]

*** (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”.
*** (1Corinthians 16:22) If ‘anyone’ does not love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be ‘accursed’. [Damned!] The Lord comes! [Again, Zechariah 12:10]
*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) and that from a child; you have known the Holy Scriptures; which are able to make you wise to salvation; through ‘faith’ in Christ Jesus. [John 7:38-39]
(2Tim 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed; and is profitable for “Doctrine”: for “Reproof”: for “Correction”: for “Instruction in righteousness””
(2Tim 3:17) that the man of God may be perfected; thoroughly furnished to every good work.
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) Now there were “False Prophets” among the people [OT]; just as there ‘also’ will be “False Teachers” among you; who will secretly introduce destructive heresies; and even deny the Master [Christ Jesus] 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.
*** (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.
*** (2Corinthains 11:13-14-15) Such people are false apostles; dishonest workers; who are ‘masquerading’ as apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) And no wonder, since Satan himself: “masquerades” as an angel of light.
(2Cor 11:15) So it is not surprising if his servants; also “masquerade” as servants of righteousness. Their damnation will match their deeds!
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.
= Do ‘YOU’… Present an “Unbalanced Gospel”…?
