“The ‘Other’ Sheep – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 10:14-to-18) I [Jesus] am the Good Shepherd; and I know those that are Mine; and I am known by those –> who are Mine.
(John 10:15) Even as the Father [God] knows Me [Jesus]; I also know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep.
(John 10:16) And I have “Other Sheep” –> who are ‘not’ of this fold. I must also lead those; and they shall hear My voice: –> and there shall be one flock: one Shepherd.
(John 10:17) Therefore My Father [God] loves Me [Jesus]: –> because I lay down My life –> so that I might take it again.
(John 10:18) No one takes it from Me [Jesus]: –> but I lay it down from Myself. I have authority to lay it down: –> and I have authority: –> to take it again. I have received this commandment from My Father [God].
*** (John 6:44) No one can come to Me [Jesus]; unless the Father [God]; Who has sent Me –> draw [compel] him: –> and I will raise him up at the last day.
*** (John 6:65-66) And He [Jesus] said, Because of this I said to you: –> that no one can come to Me: –> unless it was given to him [Repentance] –> from My Father. [2Tomothy 2:25-26]
(John 6:66) From this time many of His –> ‘disciples’ went back into the things behind: –> and walked ‘no more’ with Him [Jesus].
Can ‘You’ identify those who… truly belong to Christ Jesus…? No, I did not ask those, who ‘claimed’ to be Christian. Right away, someone will say… “By their Love!” Really…? “Define Love”…? Many claim to ‘Love Jesus’… and yet: “Hardly Ever” -> “Read & Study”… His Holy Word! Simple Solution…? If ‘You’ truly love: Christ Jesus… then ‘You’ will truly love… His Holy Word! Why…? Simply because He, Christ Jesus… is the Word Incarnate! He is the Word made Flesh! He, is the Living Holy Word of God…! Say it isn’t “So”…? Can one: love His Holy Word… and then: “Not Obey”… His Holy Word…? Absolutely “NOT”…! May I simply ask again…? Can ‘You’ identify those who… truly belong to Christ Jesus…?
*** (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.
“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
Did ‘You’ know: in the Hebrew OT… that most of the times: the English is translated to LORD… but it is the Hebrew Name for: GOD –> “Jehovah”…?
(John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a fire? Says the LORD Jehovah; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
*** (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].
*** (Micah 6:8) He 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?
*** (Jeremiah 48:10) Cursed is he who does the work of the LORD Jehovah deceitfully; and cursed is he: –> who keeps back his sword from blood [judgment].
“Is Christian ‘Obedience’… Optional? – 101”…Blog.
Who then are, the… “Other Sheep”…? It is those who have not yet; come to Christ Jesus as their: “Savior & Lord”. Does God know those who are His…? Absolutely “YES”…! Even though, they have not yet: come to Him. Remember the Scriptures…? Saul persecuted the True Believers… even to death! After his conversion, he became Paul… who wrote much of the NT! On the other hand: Judas walked with Christ Jesus and the ‘Other Disciples!’ He even performed ‘Miracles & Healings!’ Any yet… he betrayed Christ Jesus… to his own “Damnation!” Anytime during the three year ministry of Christ… Judas could be identified as a His disciple. But things “Do Not” always appear… as they seem… do they? So today, some who are today “Gross Sinners” may come to Christ as some of His… “Other Sheep!” Even those who are “Radical Muslims”… may be some of the “Other Sheep!” That is why we are “Commanded to: –> ‘Preach’ the Word!” –> and “Not preach Christianity!”
*** (2Timothy 4:2-to-5) Preach the Word: be Instant: in season and out of season: Reprove; Rebuke; Exhort –> with all long-suffering and doctrine.
(2Ti 4:3) For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine; –> but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts; tickling the ear.
(2Ti 4:4) And they will “Turn Away” their ears: –> from the Truth: –> and will be turned to myths. [fables]
(2Ti 4:5) But you watch in all things; endure afflictions; do the work of an evangelist; fully carry out your ministry.
*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘Not’ of us.
“What are the ‘Greater Works’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) And He [Jesus] said to them; These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you: –> that all things must be fulfilled: –> which were written in the Law of Moses: and in the Prophets: and in the Psalms: –> about Me.
(Luke 24:45) And He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He said to them; So it is written, and so it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that “Repentance” and ‘remission of sins’ –> should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are –> witnesses of these things.
*** (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:
(1Cor 6:10) thieves: greedy people: drunks: slanderers: and robbers: –> will ‘Not’ inherit the kingdom of God.
(1Cor 6:11) That is what some of you –> “WERE!” But you were: –>Washed: you were Sanctified: you were Justified: –> in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; and in the Spirit of our God. [Romans 8:9]
*** (1Corinthains 5:11-12-13) But now I am writing to you to: –> “Stop Associating”: –> with any so-called Brother [sister]: –> if he [she] is sexually immoral, greedy, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunk, or a robber. With such a person you must even: –> stop eating. [fellowship]
(1Cor 5:12) After all, is it my business to judge outsiders? You are to judge those who are inside, aren't you?
(1Cor 5:13) God will judge outsiders. "Put that wicked man away from you."
*** (Jeremiah 48:10) Cursed is he who does the work of Jehovah the LORD deceitfully; and cursed is he who keeps back his sword from blood.
*** (Matthew 21:28-to-31) But what do you think? A man had two sons. He went to the first and said, 'Son, go and work in the vineyard today.'
(Matt 21:29) His son replied, 'I don't want to,' but later –> he changed his mind and went.
(Matt 21:30) Then the father went to the other son and told him the same thing. He replied, 'I will, sir,' –> but he didn't go.
(Matt 21:31) Which of the two did the father's will? They answered, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, tax collectors and prostitutes will get into God's kingdom –> ahead of you.
“Is the Gospel = Magic? – 101” …Blog.
What is the Gospel…? Is it just believing in Jesus… that He died for SIN/SINS…? Do ‘You’ know, that Christ Jesus said what it was… “John 7:38-39”…! He qualified: the “True Belief” in Himself: for salvation! Today many believe in Jesus… but “Not: –> to Eternal Salvation!” Their belief on Him… is as their Belief in… “God Bless America, Land that I Love!” Their belief in Him is as is ‘Printed’ on our money… “In God we Trust!” It is “Not” a true Biblical belief… but the one of our “Cultural Christianity”… such as ‘Christmas & Easter!’ When was the last time ‘You’ heard a Christian speak about… “Repentance?” Did ‘You’ miss what Christ Jesus said… in the above Bible verses, “Luke 24:47”…? How about what God Commanded… “All Mankind”… in ‘Acts 17:30-31’…? Was it a Command to: –> “Belief –or– Repent”…? May I please: ask again… do ‘You’ love the Holy Word of God… as much as ‘You’ say… “You Love Jesus”…?
“Do ‘YOU’ = Love ‘Jesus’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (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. [Worshiped]
*** (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.
*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore, bring forth fruits worthy of repentance; and do not begin to say within yourselves; We have Abraham for our father. For I [Jesus] say to you; that God is able to raise up children to Abraham: –> from these stones.
Repentance – 101 Blog [1/6]
*** (Titus 1:15-16) To the pure all things are pure. But to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
(Tit 1:16) They profess that they know God; but in their works they deny Him; being abominable: and disobedient: and reprobate to every good work.
*** (2Corinthians 10:12) We would not dare put ourselves in the same class with: –> or compare ourselves: –> to those who recommend themselves. When they: –> measure themselves by themselves: –> and compare themselves to themselves: –> they show how ‘foolish’ they are.
