“A Sabbatical [Rest] – 101” …Blog.

*** (1Kings 19:9-to-13) And he came there to a cave and stayed there. And behold, the Word of Jehovah came to him, and He said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?
(1Ki 19:10) And he said, I have been very zealous for Jehovah the God of Hosts. For the sons of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, thrown down Your altars, and have slain Your prophets with the sword. And I, I alone, am left. And they seek to take my life away.
(1Ki 19:11) And He said, Go forth and stand on the mountain before the LORD Jehovah. And, behold; the LORD Jehovah passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains, and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD Jehovah. But the LORD Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind was an earthquake; but the LORD Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
(1Ki 19:12) And after the earthquake was a fire; but the LORD Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire; was a still, small voice.
(1Ki 19:13) And it happened when Elijah heard, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out, and stood at the cave entrance. And behold, a voice came to him and said, What are you doing here, Elijah?

*** (Romans 11:2-to-6) God did not thrust out His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture said in Elijah, how he pleaded with God against Israel, saying,
(Rom 11:3) "Lord, they killed Your prophets and dug down Your altars, and I am left alone, and they seek my life."
(Rom 11:4) But what does the Divine [GOD] answer say to him? "I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal."
(Rom 11:5) Even so then, also in this present time a remnant according to the election of grace has come into being.
(Rom 11:6) But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.

*** (Psalms 46:10) Be still; and know that I am God! I will be praised among the nations; I will be praised in the earth.
“Be Still – 101”…Blog.

May I share…? I am taking a break from my Blogs and Face Book for about ‘3 weeks’: “Alone!” This will begin on Wednesday: September 26, 2012. Unless our Lord calls me “Home”… I plan to be back. Also please not, I will ‘Not’ be using my “Internet or Email”. There will be Absolutely NO way of contacting me! I need some time for a project and to be alone without any distractions of any kind. Part of this time, I will use to do some writing. Part of this time, I will endeavor by the Grace of God… to hear that… “Still Small Voice”…! Usually Christ speaks to me directly from His Holy Word. The Holy Spirit… “Illuminates the Truth of God”… and opens my understanding. I would earnestly desire your prayers for me in this time? Thank You in advance for praying.

*** (James 4:13-to-17) Come now, those saying, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city and spend a year there, and we will trade and will make a profit,
(Jas 4:14) who do not know of the morrow. For what is your life? For it is a vapor, which appears for a little time, and then disappears.
(Jas 4:15) Instead of you saying, If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.
(Jas 4:16) But now you boast in your presumptions. All such boasting is evil.
(Jas 4:17) Therefore to him who knows to do good, and does not do it, to him it is sin.

 *** (Ephesians 5:17) Therefore do not be unwise [foolish]; but understand what the will of the Lord is. [His will = always equals = His Holy Word!]

*** (2Timothy 2:3-to-7) Therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
(2Ti 2:4) No one who wars tangles with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who chose him to be a soldier.
(2Ti 2:5) And also if anyone competes, he is not crowned unless he competes lawfully.
(2Ti 2:6) It is right for the laboring farmer to partake first of the fruits.
(2Ti 2:7) Consider what I say, and the Lord will give you understanding in all things.

*** (1Jn 5:19-20-21) We know that we are of God, and all the world lies in evil.
(1Jn 5:20) And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given us an understanding so that we may know Him who is true. And we are in Him that is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and the everlasting life.
(1Jn 5:21) Little children, guard yourselves from idols. Amen.

*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the Fruit of the [Holy] Spirit consists of every form of Goodness, Righteousness, and “TRUTH”.
“The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – 101”…Blog. [1/7]
*** (Luke 13:6-to-9) Then Jesus told them this parable: "A man had a fig tree that had been planted in his vineyard. He went to look for fruit on it but didn't find any.
(Luk 13:7) So he said to the gardener, 'Look here! For three years I have been coming to look for fruit on this tree but haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it waste the soil?'
(Luk 13:8) But the gardener replied, 'Sir, leave it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and fertilize it.
(Luk 13:9) Maybe next year it'll bear fruit. If not, then cut it down.'"

“Church or ‘Home’ Church? – 101” …Blog.

“Church or ‘Home’ Church? – 101” …Blog.

*** (Hebrews 10:25) not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another even more as you see the day coming nearer.

*** (Acts 20:20) I never shrank from telling you anything that would help you nor from teaching you publicly and from house to house.

*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.

*** (Acts 20:7) On the first day of the week, when we had met to break bread, Paul began to address the people. Since he intended to leave the next day, he went on speaking until midnight.

Where do ‘You’ attend your “Church Meeting”…? Is it in a Church Building, a Store Front, or some other Building…? The early Churches, containing those Born Again by the Holy Spirit of GOD… moved from the Jewish Synagogues… to Christians homes. First, we must use the Scriptures and determine… “Who is the Church”…? Did ‘You’ NOT Know; that the Bride of Christ, His Called Out ONES… is the Church? It is “NOT” a denomination…! Denominations are all… ‘Man Made’… and often do ‘Not’ put forth “True Biblical Truth”…! After a number of my Emails were returned; that refused to answer my Biblical Questions about their Church… ‘I gave Up!’ Some even replied, “Perhaps this is ‘Not’ the place for You!” Others I visited, did Not even read… “1Corinthains 11:23-to-32”… before their ‘Communion Service!’ When I questioned the Pastoral staff, they ‘Refused’ to answer…? Obviously, the Church: has been in a ‘Spiritual Decline’ for some years. Some ‘home’ churches I have attended have; left off... “The Complete Authority of His Holy Word”… and replaced it with “[Supposed] Christian Rock & Praise Music!”

*** (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. [1Corinthains 16:22]

*** (James 3:1) Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers; because you know that we who teach = will be = Judged More Severely!

*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to ‘You’ -> when “ALL” men shall speak well of You! For so their fathers did to the False Prophets.

*** (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If = they do NOT speak according TO this Word, = it is because ‘NO’ Light = is in them. [Romans 8:9]

“FALSE: Apostles; Prophets; Evangelists; Pastors: ‘Etc.’ – 101” …Blog

*** (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) For such ones are False Apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves - into the Apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an –> ANGEL of LIGHT?
(2Cor 11:15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.

*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who secretly will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And -> Many <- will follow their pernicious ways; and because of them the way of Truth: will be evil spoken of.

*** (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.

We have been living in the “Last Days”… for some ‘2,000+’ years. What did Christ Jesus say it would be ‘Like’ before His Return…? Remember “9-11 Terrorist Attack”: and how ‘Very Many’ Christians… said it was the “End Times”…? Did ‘You’ see any of those… “Christians Repenting”… because of the Wickedness of our Nation…? “Yes or No”…? How much worse has our nation and the world… “Degraded” since then…? Does “Spoiled Food”… ever ‘better’ itself…? Absolutely Not, it just gets… “More Rotten”..! … American’s buy Over FOUR $ Trillion dollars in Illegal Drugs Including MARIJUANA!

*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD.

*** (Jeremiah 13:23) Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard its spots? Then you also may do good; who are ‘Accustomed’ to: Doing Evil!

*** (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.

*** (Matthew 24:37) But as the days of Noah were; so shall be the coming of the Son of Man.

*** (Genesis 6:5
) And the LORD Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth; and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

*** (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.

*** (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 say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham: from these stones.

Repentance – 101 Blog  [1/6]     
May I ask ‘You’ a personal question…? What is your relationship with Christ Jesus like..? Do ‘You’ find yourself spending ‘More or Less’ time in His Holy Word…? Does the Holy Word of God… “Come Alive to You”… as the Holy Spirit teachers: ‘You’ more of God’s Truth” from His Holy Word…? Or has it just become a ‘Duty to You’…? Or have ‘You’ given up a: dedicated serious study of His Holy Word…? Who MOVED away from that… “First Love”… ‘You’ had for Christ Jesus & His Holy Word; when ‘You were “First Born Again”…? Has life, relationships, families: AND the Computer [& Face Book] and especially your “PHONE”… replaced His “Leadings & Promptings?” Has your MEDITATION on His Holy Word… ‘Vanished’… from your “Thought Processes?” Do ‘You’ no longer mediate on those Bible verses ‘You’ have read? Do You meet with Him in… His Holy Word… at the fist of your day? Or do ‘You’ give Him the “Leftovers” at the end of your long & demanding… “Day?”

*** (Revelation 2:4) However, I have this against you: You have abandoned the love you had at first.

*** (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.

Isn’t it about Time – 101 ?

*** (Luke 24:28-to-32) And they drew near the village where they were going. And He appeared to be going further.
(Luk 24:29) But they constrained Him, saying, Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is far spent. And He went in to stay with them.
(Luk 24:30) And it happened as He reclined with them, taking the loaf, He blessed it, and breaking it, He gave to them.
(Luk 24:31) And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him. And He became invisible to them.
(Luk 24:32) And they said to one another, Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us by the way and while He opened the Scriptures to us?

*** (Revelation 3:13-to-19) 'Let the person who has an ear listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.'
(Rev 3:14) "To the messenger of the church in Laodicea, write: 'The Amen, the witness who is faithful and true, the beginning of God's creation, says this:
(Rev 3:15) 'I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot.
(Rev 3:16) Since you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I am going to spit you out of my mouth.
(Rev 3:17) You say, "I am rich. I have become wealthy. I don't need anything." Yet you don't realize that you are miserable, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.
(Rev 3:18) Therefore, I advise you to buy from me gold purified in fire so that you may be rich, white clothes to wear so that you may keep the shame of your nakedness from showing, and ointment to put on your eyes so that you may see.
(Rev 3:19) I correct and discipline those whom I love, so be serious and repent!

Your neighbor’s house is on FIRE…! Do ‘You’ just sit by and hope someone ‘else’ will call “9-11?” That is why I speak when I see such things going on in the Church, the Bride of Christ! I do not write these blogs to… “Accuse nor Excuse”… my or anyone’s actions. It is my Love for His Church, the Body of Christ: that causes me to ‘Speak’: these things to ‘You!’ Have ‘You’ lost your First Love…? Then perhaps… “Confess & Forsake & Change”… your ways?

(Ezek 11:20) so that they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances, and do them. And they shall be My people, and I will be their God.

*** (Luke 17:21) Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. [Romans 8:9 & 1Jn 5:6]

*** (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.

“Jewish Culture? & The Bible – 101”

“Jewish Culture? & The Bible – 101”

Question: Does ‘One’ have to understand “Jewish Culture”, to understand the Bible…? “Yes” or “No”…? Please answer first…?

*** (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.

*** (Jeremiah 22:9) Then they shall answer; “Because” they have ‘forsaken’ the covenant of the LORD their God; and ‘worshipped’ other [false] gods; and ‘served’ them.

*** (2Kings 17:33) They feared the Lord Jehovah; and [also] served their own [false] gods; according to the custom of the nations: whom they removed from there.

The next logical question is… “Where do ‘You’ get your “Information” about Past: Jewish Culture”…? Recently I listened to a Speaker, proclaiming that one has to understand “Jewish Culture” to understand the Bible. What do these three above Bible verses say about “Jewish Culture”…? Any student of the Holy Word of God: knows that the JEWS… Substituted their “Talmud and the Traditions of the Elders”… for God’s Holy Word! What about a Truly Born Again Christian in a third world country… who did not have access to the Preaching we have here in America. Could they “Understand” the Bible without understanding: “Jewish Culture”…? “Yes or No”…? Please answer…? Are ‘You’ now telling me, that the Holy Spirit of God is… “Not Enough to… “Enlighten the Understanding” of a True Child of God…? “Yes or No”…? Please answer…?

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].
“The Holy Spirit & ‘Pentecost’ – 101”…Blog. [1/4]

*** (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.

*** (John 7:38) The one who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said; will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(Joh 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 & Romans 8:9]

*** (John 16:13) Yet when the [Holy] Spirit of Truth comes: He will guide you into all Truth. For He will not speak on his own accord, but will speak whatever He hears and will declare to you the things that are to come.
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me [Jesus]; for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you.
(John 16:15) All that the Father [God] has is Mine [Jesus]. That is why I said, 'He will take what is Mine; and declare it to you.'

*** (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 the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].

“Isn’t the ‘BIBLE’ Enough…? – 101” …Blog.
*** (Jeremiah 13:1-to-11) So says the LORD Jehovah to me, Go and buy for yourself a linen girdle, and put it on your loins, and do not put it in water.
(Jer 13:2) So I bought a girdle according to the Word of the LORD Jehovah, and put it on my loins.
(Jer 13:3) And the Word of the LORD Jehovah came to me a second time, saying,
(Jer 13:4) Take the girdle that you bought, which is on your loins, and arise. Go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock.
(Jer 13:5) So I went and hid it by Euphrates, as the LORD Jehovah commanded me.
(Jer 13:6) And it happened at the end of many days Jehovah said to me, Arise, go to Euphrates and take the girdle from there, which I commanded you to hide there.
(Jer 13:7) Then I went to Euphrates and dug, and took the girdle from the place where I had hidden it. And, behold, the girdle was rotted; it was not good for anything.
(Jer 13:8) Then the Word of the LORD Jehovah came to me, saying,
(Jer 13:9) So says the LORD Jehovah, In this way I will spoil the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem.
(Jer 13:10) This evil people, who refuse to hear My Words, who walk in the stubbornness of their heart and walk after other gods to serve them and to worship them, shall even be like this girdle, which is good for nothing.
(Jer 13:11) For as the girdle holds fast to the loins of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me, says the LORD Jehovah; so that they might be to Me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory; but they would not hear.

What do these Bible verses say about “Jewish Culture”…? Please be extremely careful, when a New Bible teacher comes on the scene. He may know his Bible but… “Any Presentation Limiting or Negating the HOLY SPIRIT”… teaching ‘You’ must: “Always be Suspect.” Ultimately when we all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to… “Receive & Lose Rewards”… that “Teacher” will ‘Not’ step up and defend what he taught ‘You!’ The True Child of God will be “Personally Responsible”… for what they “Believed or Didn’t Believe!” Isn’t that So…? “Yes or No”…? Please answer…?

*** (1Corinthians 3:11-to-15) After all, no one can lay any other foundation than the one that is already laid, and that is Jesus Christ.
(1Cor 3:12) Whether a person builds on this foundation with gold, silver, expensive stones, wood, hay, or straw,
(1Cor 3:13) the workmanship of each person will become evident, for the day will show what it is, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work.
(1Cor 3:14) If what a person has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If his work is burned up, he will suffer loss. However, he himself will be saved, but it will be like going through fire.

*** (Genesis 3:13) And Jehovah God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me, and I ate.

*** (Genesis 3:17) And to Adam He said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it! The ground is cursed for your sake. In pain shall you eat of it all the days of your life.

This “Human ‘Blame’ Game”… can be seen through the Bible. Who is the one responsible for what ‘You’… “Know & Think & Believe”… about God and His Holy Word, “The Bible”…? Was it the “Serpent, or Eve or Adam”…? Absolutely… “NOT”…! It is… “You” and “You Alone”… are responsible for what ‘You’… “Know & Think & Believe”… about God and His Holy Word, “The Bible”…! Have ‘You’ read “Psalms 119:All” lately? Perhaps our focus should be on… “Knowing what GOD really wants us to Know”…? All is there in the Holy Word of God! Remember the Command… “Study… 2Timothy 2:15-16”… AND… “All Scripture… 2Timothy 4:13-to-19”…?  What do ‘You’ suppose God gave us His Holy Word for…? Just to “Tickle our minds”… Or to Obediently: “Hide it in our Hearts”… so that we may “Live Out His Holy Word”…?

*** (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.

“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
*** (Psalms 19:7-to-14) The Law of The LORD Jehovah is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of The LORD Jehovah is sure, making the simple wise.
(Psa 19:8) The Precepts of The LORD Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart; the Commandments of The LORD Jehovah are pure, giving light to the eyes.
(Psa 19:9) The fear of The LORD Jehovah is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of The LORD Jehovah are true and righteous altogether,
(Psa 19:10) more to be desired than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
(Psa 19:11) And Your servant is warned by them; in keeping them there is great reward.
(Psa 19:12) Who can understand his errors? Oh make me pure from secret faults;
(Psa 19:13) and keep Your servant back from presumptuous sins; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be upright, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
(Psa 19:14) Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O The LORD Jehovah, my Rock and my Redeemer.

*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that “man shall Not live by bread alone; but by “Every” –> Word of God.” [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]

“Not by Bread ‘Alone’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (2Peter 1:2-to-10) May grace and peace be yours in abundance through the full knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord!
(2Pe 1:3) His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through the full knowledge of the One [God] Who called [John 6:44] us by His own glory and excellence.
(2Pe 1:4) Through these He has given us His precious and wonderful promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, seeing that you have escaped the corruption that is in the world caused by evil desires.
(2Pe 1:5) For this very reason, you must make every effort to supplement your faith with moral character, your moral character with knowledge,
(2Pe 1:6) your knowledge with self-control, your self-control with endurance, your endurance with godliness,
(2Pe 1:7) your godliness with brotherly kindness, and your brotherly kindness with love.
(2Pe 1:8) For if you possess these qualities, and if they continue to increase among you, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in attaining a full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(2Pe 1:9) For the person who lacks these qualities is blind and shortsighted, and has forgotten the cleansing that he has received from his past sins.
(2Pe 1:10) So then, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election certain, for if you keep on doing this you will never fail.
