Will You be Reconciled to God - 101 Blog.

“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.

*** (2Corinthians 5:17-to-21) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ; they are a new creation [in Christ alone]. Old things [your old life] have disappeared; and look! All things have become new! [You in Christ!]
(2Co 5:18) All of this comes from God; Who has reconciled us [You] to Himself; through Christ [Finished work of Your Redemption]; and has given us [all that are His] the ministry of reconciliation. [to bring others to Christ]
(2Co 5:19) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness]; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [in Christ alone]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].

*** (Colossians 1:27) to whom God; wanted to make known; the glorious riches of this secret; among the gentiles; which is Christ in you [Romans 8:9]; the hope of glory.

Perhaps ‘You’ do not call yourself a… “Child of God?” Just perhaps, when asked; ‘You’ have respond; that ‘You’ believe in God. No, I am not speaking to ‘You’… to condemn ‘You’. ‘You’ have seen those ‘Bible Thumpers’… speaking down to “Others”… and ‘You’ did not want anything to do with ‘Them!’ Others have told ‘You’… Repent: or “Hell Awaits ‘You’!” That too has turned ‘You’ off to God’s Message of… “Love & Mercy & Grace”… that awaits ‘You!’ Perhaps ‘You’ have been turned off to “His Message”… because ‘You’ have seen the “Hypocrisy & Duplicity” of those calling themselves… “Christian?” Even if all those things are ‘True’… will ‘You’ miss the good things that God has for ‘You’… “In Christ Jesus?” But the real one… who does not want ‘You’ to come to Christ is… “Satan!” He has no power over ‘You’… except that which ‘You’… “Allow in Yourself.” Remember one thing; if nothing else… “I”… is the middle of “S-I-N”…!

*** (Romans 6:16) Don't you know; that when you offer yourselves to someone; as obedient slaves; you are slaves of the one you ‘Obey’ –> either of Sin; which leads to Death; or of ‘Obedience’ –> which leads to Righteousness?

*** (James 1:13-to-16) When someone is tempted; he should not say, “I am being tempted by God,” –>  because God cannot be tempted by evil; nor does He tempt anyone.
(Jas 1:14) Instead, each person is tempted by his own desire [lust]; being lured and trapped by it.
(Jas 1:15) When that desire [lust] becomes pregnant; it gives birth to Sin; and when that sin grows up [matures]; it gives birth to Death.
(Jas 1:16) Do ‘not’ be deceived; my dear brothers.

*** (Hebrews 2:13-14-15) And again, “I [Jesus] will put My trust in Him [God].” And again, “Behold Me [Jesus] and the children [true believers] whom God; has given Me [Jesus].” [John 6:37 & John 6:44 & John 10:16]
(Heb 2:14) Since then the children [of God] have partaken of flesh and blood; He [Jesus] also Himself likewise; partook of the same [became ‘human’ also]; that through death He [Jesus] might destroy him who had the power of death; that is the Devil [Satan],
(Heb 2:15) and deliver those; who through fear of death; were all their lifetime; subject to bondage. [slavery to the human desires (lusts) of the flesh]

*** (1Corinthains 6:9-10-11) You know that wicked people; will not inherit the kingdom of God, don't you? Stop deceiving yourselves! Sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,
(1Co 6:10) thieves, greedy people, drunks, slanderers, and robbers will not inherit the kingdom of God.
(1Co 6:11) That is what some of you were [before ‘You’ came to Christ]! But you were Washed [in His Blood]: you were Sanctified [set apart for God’s use]; you were Justified [just as though you never sinned]; in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God.

*** (2Corinthians 5:17) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ; they are a new creation [in Christ alone]. Old things [your old life] have disappeared; and look! All things have become new! [You in Christ!]

He, Christ is willing to take ‘You’… “Just as ‘You’ ARE!” Has anyone ever explained that to ‘You’…? Christ Jesus… takes ‘You’ just as ‘You’ are “NOW!”… and makes ‘You’: “His Child!” Many, wrongly think; that they have to “Clean Up their Lives–> First”… before they come to Christ! That is the “Devils Lie”…! If ‘You’ have heard or read… anything about the gospels… did any of the “Sinners of Jesus’ Day”… clean up their lives ‘First’…? Absolutely Not!  Those that ‘Did Not’ come to Him… were those who were; “Self-pompous Religious Bigots!” Many today… who will not meet sinners on their ground… have the same problem. They say they want to have sinners: come to Christ Jesus… but cannot communicate this simple Truth! Christ Jesus will take ‘You’… just where ‘You’ are now. When ‘You’ come to Him as He has said… “John 7:38-39”… ‘You’ will leave your ‘sin & life’: that violates His Truth! When ‘You’ truly come to Christ Jesus… and are Born Again by His Holy Spirit… ‘You’ then; have a new perspective on Life. This process is God; is simply working in your life… as ‘You’ allow Him. But there is a “Warning”… that I must share! Those who think that they can come to “Christ Jesus” for salvation… and continue in their decadent sinful lifestyle… will be “Spanked by God!” He loves His real children enough to Chasten [Spank] them…!

*** (Ecclesiastes 8:11) Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily; therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

*** (Hebrews 12:5-to-8) You have forgotten the encouragement that is addressed to you as sons: [by God] “My son, do not think lightly of the Lord's discipline; or give up when you are corrected by Him.
(Heb 12:6) For the Lord disciplines the [every] one He loves; and He punishes [spanks] every son he accepts.”
(Heb 12:7) What you endure is for the sake of discipline. God is treating you as sons. Is there a son; whom his father does not discipline? [no]
(Heb 12:8) Now if you are without any discipline; in which all sons [claim to] share; then you are ‘illegitimate’ [Bastards]; and ‘not; His sons.

*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so ‘many’ of you are Weak: and Sick: and a considerable number are Dying. [Acts 5:1-to-11]

*** (John 7:38-39) The one [You]; who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said; will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart.
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit; Whom those; who were believing in Him [Jesus] were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was not yet present; because Jesus had not yet been glorified. [Acts 2:1-to-5 -&- Acts 15:8-9 -&- 1Corinthains 12:13 -&- Romans 8:9]

*** (Romans 6:1-2) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(Rom 6:2) God forbid! How shall we, that are dead to sin; live any longer therein?

*** (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.

*** (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.

“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.  [from my blog site]

Recently, I had someone… say to me, “What about those that ‘do not’ come to Christ, did Christ die for their sins also…? Is there a ‘Limited Atonement’… only for those that come to Christ Jesus? Absolutely Yes! Perhaps I may share with you my understanding of this fact?

1. I give you a check for… “10,000 dollars!”
2. You thank me; and ‘Never’ cash that check!
3. You think that it is charity’ but I tell you it is unconditional ‘grace’: with no strings attached.
4. Still… you want to succeed on your own; with the help, of no one.
5. You Die…! [All ‘Die’: don’t we?]
6. Your heirs close your estate; and find my check to you; for the money.
7. They go to the Bank… and try and cash my check; made out to you.
8. The bank informs them… sorry the person is dead; the funds are “Non-Transferable!”

That is a ‘word picture’… of “Salvation”. God calls “All” mankind to Himself. Many ‘refuse’ His gift of Grace: in total payment for their… “Sin / Sins.” Their ‘Refusal’ to cash their check, the… “Gift of God”… will leave one… without the required: ‘Eternal’ payment for their… “Sin / Sins!” This… Atonement by Christ Jesus for “YOU”… is paid for by the… “Death, Burial and Resurrection of Christ Jesus: Himself”… But…rejected by “You!” Where then do you expect to spend eternity… after spitting in the face of God: and refusing His gift of Grace to “You?” This is the Gospel… that we communicate as… “Evangelism = ‘You’ are Witnesses of these Things… “Luke 24:44-to-49”

*** (1Jn 2:19) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they were of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out so that it might be revealed; that they were ‘not’ all of us.

The Anointing – 101  Blog about the Holy Spirit

*** (Ephesians 4:28-to-32) The thief must no longer steal; but must work hard and do what is good with his own hands; so that he might have something to give to the needy.
(Eph 4:29) Let no filthy talk come out of your mouths; but ‘only’ what is good for building up; as the need may be. This way you will give grace; to those who hear you.
(Eph 4:30) Do not grieve the Holy Spirit; by Whom you were marked with a seal; for the day of redemption. [Romans 8:9]
(Eph 4:31) Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, quarreling, and slander be put away from you, along with all hatred.
(Eph 4:32)  And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another just as God has forgiven you in Christ.

So just how do ‘You’ come to Jesus…?  Do ‘You’ have to walk a Church aisle…? Do ‘You’ have to say... ‘A Sinners Prayer?’ Sorry NO… all ‘You’ must do is to talk with Jesus! He already knows your… “Heart & Mind & Soul”. You cannot come to Him… unless He has already given you ‘repentance’; and drawn ‘You’… to Himself! Simply tell Him the best ‘You’ can… “In your own words”… that You are a hopeless sinner…!  And that ‘You’ believe that He died on the Cross… for all your “SIN/SINS”… Past: Present: And Future…! Yes, remember He died over 2,000 years ago; and your sins were yet in the Future!

*** (Romans 10:910) If you declare; with your mouth that Jesus is Lord; and believe; in your heart; that God raised him from the dead: you will be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For a person believes with his heart; and is justified; and a person declares with his mouth; and is saved.

Please write me and share… your confession about Christ; and I will send you some material to help You grow Spiritually…!

*** (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. [2Peter 2:1-2-3 & 2Timothy 2:15-16 & 2Timothy 3:14-to-17]
