“What do ‘You’ know about ‘Prayer?” – 101” …Blog.
*** (Psalms 66:18) If I regard iniquity in my heart; the Lord will ‘NOT’ hear me:
*** (Proverbs 28:9) He that turns away his ear from ‘hearing’ the Law [Word]; even his “Prayer”: –> shall be ‘Abomination’.
*** (Proverbs 17:15) He that justifies the wicked; and he that condemns the just; even they both are ‘Abomination’ to the LORD.
Prayer is communion with God…! Are Biblical instructions for celebrating the Lords’ table… Communion… is found in His Holy Word? Are they explicit… or just general? There is also a warning about violation of that communion with God. Did ‘You’ think that prayer was any different…? Did ‘You’ really…?
*** (1Corinthains 11:23-to-32) For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you-how the Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took a loaf of bread,
(1Cor 11:24) gave thanks for it, and broke it in pieces, saying, "This is my body that is for you. Keep doing this in memory of me."
(1Cor 11:25) He did the same with the cup after the supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. As often as you drink from it, keep doing this in memory of me."
(1Cor 11:26) For as often as you eat this bread and drink from this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
(1Cor 11:27) Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks from the cup in an unworthy manner will be held responsible for the Lord's body and blood.
(1Cor 11:28) A person must examine himself and then eat the bread and drink from the cup.
(1Cor 11:29) For the one who eats and drinks without recognizing the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.
(1Cro 11:30) That's why so many of you are Weak and Sick and a considerable number are Dying.
(1Cor 11:31) But if we judged ourselves correctly, we would not be judged.
(1Cor 11:32) Now, while we are being judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined lest we be condemned along with the world.

Before ‘Each & Every’ –> “Spiritual Practice”… Do ‘You’ prepare your heart… before Christ Jesus…? What do ‘You’ do before: ANY Spiritual Exercise: –> Worship, Praise, Communion, Fellowship and Yes: “Especially Prayer”…? Well Do “You” Prepare Your Heart…? “Yes or No”…? What does “2Chronicles 12:14 & Ezra 7:10”… say about: “Preparing our Hearts”…?
*** (2Chronicles 12:14) And he did the Evil: –>because he did ‘NOT’: –> Prepare his Heart; to seek the LORD.
*** (Ezra 7:10) For Ezra had “Prepared his Heart” –> to seek the Law of the LORD Jehovah; –> and to do it; –> and to teach statutes and judgments: in Israel.
*** (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”.
What does “John 12:48” [above] have to do with Prayer…? Here in America, we have mostly a… “Pseudo Christian ‘SOCIAL’ Christianity!” Just because our national anthem says, “God Bless America”… and our money says: “In God we Trust”… does ‘NOT’ make it so! A section of our country, the south east United States is often referred to as, ‘The Bible Belt.’ But while in North Carolina on a business trip, I saw this ‘Bill Board’ with this message. “What is it ‘You’… Don’t Understand About: You Shall ‘Not’ Commit Adultery?”… ‘Signed God!’ Yes, in that area of our country where belief in the Bible is said to be… “Most Prevalent!” How can that be…? Just because they ‘claim’ to believe the Bible… does God really ‘hear’ their prayers…? More than Hollywood, California: where most do ‘Not’ believe the Bible…? What about these Bible verses; where God says… He will ‘Not’ hear their prayers…?
*** (Jeremiah 11:14) And you: do “Not” pray for this people, “Nor” lift up a cry or prayer for them. For I [God] will “Not” hear them in the time; they cry to Me for their trouble.
*** (Ezekiel 14:14) And though these three men: –> Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it: –> they should deliver: –> “Only” their own souls by their righteousness; says the Lord Jehovah.
*** (Psalms 109:7) when he is judged, let him be condemned; and let his Prayer become Sin.
*** (Jeremiah 7:16) Therefore do Not pray for this people, nor lift up cry nor prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I [God] will “NOT” hear you.
*** (Matthew 5:23-24) Therefore if you offer your gift on the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you,
(Matt 5:24) leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
*** (1Timothy 1:19-20) with faith and a good conscience. By ignoring their consciences, some people have destroyed their faith like a wrecked ship.
(1Tim 1:20) These include Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I handed over to Satan so that they may learn –> Not to blaspheme.
*** (John 14:14) If you ask anything in My name; I [Jesus] will do it.
“Is Your ‘JESUS’ = Santa Clause – 101”…Blog.
Do ‘You’ think that America is a… “Christian Nation”…? Well it is “Not”: a nation cannot be Christian. “Only Individual ‘People’ can be Born Again”… by the Holy Spirit of God! When a godless social or political leader… ‘Publically Prays’ about a national tragedy… does God hear their prayers…? “Yes or No”…? This is especially prevalent during “9-11”; school shootings, etc. He, GOD: hears the Prayers of His Children… “ONLY”… when they are in: Obedience to Him! Did ‘You’ see the above Bible verses… where GOD said He would “NOT” hear the prayers for His Covenant People Israel…? What then makes ‘You’ then think… that He will hear your prayers for our… “Godless Wicked ‘American’ Nation”…? American’s buy Over FOUR $ Trillion dollars in Illegal Drugs Including MARIJUANA! American Mothers have MURDERED Over 55,000,000 Million “INNOCENT” Babies by Abortion. American is the World's Largest EXPORTER of PORN & Abortion Technology! And the majority of people who call themselves… “Christian”… are looking for a political leader… to lead us out of “God’s Judgment” on our Nation…! Those same ones are more interested in Politics… then “Reading & Obeying” their Bibles…! Will ‘You’ then tell me… “Just a little prayer with Jesus makes it Right”…? “Yes or No”…?
*** (John 5:39-40) You examine the Scriptures = carefully because you suppose = that in them = you have eternal life. = Yet they testify about Me.
(John 5:40) But you = are ‘NOT’ willing = to come to Me [Jesus] = to have life.
*** (Isaiah 65:12) Therefore I [God] will number you to the sword; and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because I [God] called and you did Not answer; when I [God] spoke; you did Not hear and did evil before My eyes; and chose that in which I [God] did Not delight.
*** (Amos 4:10) I [God] have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: = your young men have I slain with the sword, = and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned [REPENTED] unto Me, says the LORD.
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
*** (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?
*** (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]
Have ‘You’ made an in depth study of Prayer… using your Bible…? From whom then, did ‘You’ learn about prayer? Perhaps listening to ‘Others’ pray…? How about from your Pastor or Church…? We must all stand before Christ Jesus in Judgment for: “Rewards or Loss of Rewards!” When we all do… will your prayers to Him… match the instructions found in “His Holy Word”…? “Yes or No”…? Do ‘You’ expect God to hear your prayers… because your “Heart is Sincere”…? If I “Sincerely” pray for a… “Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4”… will God hear my prayers…? “Yes or No”…? Just perhaps, it is time for each of us… to get back to what: His Holy Word says about “Prayer”…? Just because we ‘Think’ or ‘Feel’ or are ‘Sure’ that… God hears our prayers… “Does NOT make it So”…! Especially when we have violated… His Holy Word!
*** (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God; and keep His commandments. For this is the whole duty of man.
(Eccl 12:14) For God shall bring every work into judgment; with ‘every’ secret thing; ‘whether’ it is Good; or ‘whether’ Evil.
*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) Join me in suffering like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 2:4) No one serving in the military gets mixed up in civilian matters, for his aim is to please his commanding officer.
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one who is an athlete wins a prize: –> unless he competes according to the rules.
*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept; precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go; and fall backward [backslide]; and be broken; and snared; and taken.
“Reasonable Service – 101” …Blog.
*** (Romans 12:1-to-4) I therefore urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercies, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices that are holy and pleasing to God, for this is the reasonable way for you to worship.
(Rom 12:2) Do not be conformed to this world, but continually be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God's will is -> what is proper, pleasing, and perfect.
(Rom 12:3) For by the grace given to me I ask every one of you not to think of yourself more highly than you should think, rather to think of yourself with sober judgment on the measure of faith that God has assigned each of you.
(Rom 12:4) For we have many parts in one body, but these parts do not all have the same function [office].
… MOST do not realize that it was ‘NOT’… the Roman soldiers –> that nailed Christ Jesus to the Cross…! It was the “SINS” of… “ME, My Sins”… that Nailed ‘HIM’ to that Cross…! True Biblical Confession happens ‘Only’ –> when we are willing to take that… “Personal Responsibility” of: –> “My Sins Nailed ‘HIM’ [Christ Jesus]:–> there to that Cross”…!
“What is ‘Confession’ of SIN – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Jn 1:9-10) If we make it our habit to confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us those sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1Jn 1:10) If we say that we have never sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is ‘not’ in us.
