“Judas: ‘Family’ members – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 10:34-to-38) "Do not think that I [Jesus] came to bring peace on earth. I [Jesus] did not come to bring peace but a Sword! [John 12:48]
(Matt 10:35) For I [Jesus] came to turn 'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
(Matt 10:36) A person's enemies will be members of his own family.'
(Matt 10:37) "The one who loves his father or mother more than Me [Jesus] isn't worthy of Me, and the one who loves a son or daughter more than Me isn't worthy of Me.
(Matt 10:38) The one who doesn't take up his cross and follow Me; isn't worthy of Me.
(Luke 11:23) He who is ‘Not’ with Me [Jesus]: is against Me; and he who does ‘Not’ gather with Me [Jesus] scatters.
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! Shall enter the kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will [Word] of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) MANY = will say to Me [Jesus] in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I ‘never’ knew you! = Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!
*** (Luke 22:48) But Jesus said to him, Judas, do you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?
Christ Jesus ‘identified’ your enemies…! They will come as ‘members’ of your own flesh & blood; your “Family!” They were ‘Frist’: against Him… before they were against ‘You!’ There are only two groups of ‘People’ here on earth. The ‘First’ are those who are Truly Born Again and Love Christ Jesus and His Holy Word. They are faithful to His Holy Word; and read & study it daily; out of their Love for Him! The other group is… “All the Others!” Many of these ‘Others’: “Falsely Claim” that they know Him! Their religion consists of only an outward ‘Chameleon Christianity’ which changes with their… “friends & companions & situations!” Remember this one thing… “Your Personhood in Christ”… is ‘NOT’ defined: by the ‘Opinions or Approval’ of those… “Others!” Christ Jesus had the same problem with the “Pharisees, Scribes, Lawyers & Sadducees” of His day.
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to You -> when “ALL” men shall speak well of You! For so their fathers did to the False Prophets.
*** (John 15:18-to-21) "If the world hates you, you should realize that it hated Me [Jesus] before you.
(John 15:19) If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. But because you ‘do not’ belong to the world and I [Jesus] have chosen you out of it, the world hates you.
(John 15:20) Remember the word that I [Jesus] spoke to you: 'A servant is ‘not’ greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me [Jesus], they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will also keep yours.
(John 15:21) They will do all these things to you on account of My name, because they ‘do not’ know the One [God], Who sent Me [Jesus].
*** (2Corinthains 6:4-to-10) Instead, in every way we demonstrate that we are God's servants by tremendous endurance in the midst of difficulties, hardships, and calamities;
(2Cor 6:5) in beatings, imprisonments, and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights, and hunger;
(2Cor 6:6) with purity, knowledge, patience, and kindness; with the Holy Spirit, genuine love,
(2Cor 6:7) truthful speech, and divine power; through the weapons of righteousness in the right and left hands;
(2Cor 6:8) through honor and dishonor; through ill repute and good repute; perceived as deceivers and yet true,
(2Cor 6:9) as unknown and yet well-known, as dying and yet-as you see-very much alive, as punished and yet not killed,
(2Cor 6:10) as sorrowful and yet always rejoicing, as poor and yet enriching many, as having nothing and yet possessing everything.
These above Scripture verses say it ALL…! ‘Suffering’ is a part of being His child! Others will hate us; because they sense something different about “US!” That difference is the “Holy Spirit of GOD!” The Holy Spirit that indwells us and… they are “Convicted”: of their SIN/SINS… ‘because’ they know that we “Love Jesus & His Holy Word!” Do ‘You’ notice how, we who do: are drawn to the “Each of US”… who are ‘Truly Born Again’…? That “Kindred Spirit”… is the Indwelling Holy Spirit… in us! Those who are offended by us… know in their human spirits… that we are ‘Different’! It is because of HIS Holy Spirit: Who has ‘Sealed Us’ & ‘Indwells Us’…! It is not ‘You’ they have a hard time with… it is the Holy Spirit: Who lives within: ‘His Real Children’…!
Holy Spirit Conviction - 101
*** (John 16:7-to-15) However, I [Jesus] am telling you the Truth. It is for your advantage that I am going away, for if I do not go away the [Holy Spirit] Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send Him to you.
(John 16:8) When He comes, He will “Convict” the world of Sin; Righteousness’ and Judgment-
(John 16:9) of Sin, because they do ‘not’ believe in Me [Jesus];
(John 16:10) of Righteousness, because I [Jesus] am going to the Father [God] and you will no longer see me;
(John 16:11) and of Judgment, because the ruler [1Jn 5:19] of this world has been judged.
(John 16:12) "I [Jesus] still have a lot to say to you, but you cannot bear it now.
(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 [the Holy Spirit] 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 [Jesus] said, 'He [the Holy Spirit] will take what is Mine [Jesus] and declare it to you.'
**** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man = does NOT receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are = “FOOLISHNESS” = to him; neither can he = know = them, because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.
*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does ‘Not’ love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be ‘Accursed’ [Damned]. The Lord comes! [Again]
*** (Ephesians 4:30) And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God: by Whom you are ‘SEALED’ until the day of redemption.
*** (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.
The Anointing – 101 Blog [about the Holy Spirit]
“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” Did ‘You’ purposely miss.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!
Those who are ‘Pseudo Christians’… still “Claim” that they Know Jesus! But they do ‘Not’ hold to the Scriptures! If they did they would… “Honor their Fathers & Mothers”… as “Commanded”: by the Scriptures. Many children believe in a “Hand me down Faith!” That is a Lie, as there is No such thing! Being “Born Again”… is the Command of Christ Jesus… and cannot be a: Pass On Faith! America is “Not” a Christian 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! Surely the “85+%” of Americans: who call themselves… ‘Christians’… Really are… “NOT!”
(Luke 18:20) You know the commandments: Never commit adultery [sexual sins]. Never murder. Never steal. Never give false testimony. Honor your father and mother.
*** (Proverbs 30:17) The eye that mocks at his father: –> and despises to obey –> his mother; –> the ravens of the valley shall pick it out: –> and the young eagles shall eat it.
*** (Judges 2:10) And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them –> which knew NOT: the LORD, nor yet the works which He had done for Israel.
“Family ‘Faith’ or Not? – 101” …Blog.
What about those Children who have “Ungodly Parents”…? Is your mother a “Prostitute” and your father a “Drug Dealer”…? There is the exception in the Scriptures. Do ‘You’ know your Bible and where that is found…? We are never commanded to our Honor Ungodly Parents ‘Lifestyle’… but we are Commanded: to warn them! As we are… to warn all… who say they are ‘Christians?’ Remember even though they are ‘Ungodly’ they may still… “Falsely Claim”… to be “Christians!”
*** (1Kings 15:11-12-13) And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the LORD Jehovah; as David his father did.
(1Ki 15:12) And he took away the ‘sodomites’ out of the land; and ‘removed’ all the idols that his fathers had made.
(1Ki 15:13) And also he even ‘removed’ his mother Maachah from being queen: because she had made an idol in a grove. And Asa ‘destroyed’ her idol and burned it by the torrent Kidron.
“Give them A ‘Warning’ – 101” …Blog. (my)
*** (Titus 3:10) After the first and second warning; Reject a man [Woman] of heresy,
*** (1Corinthains 5:11-12-13) But now I am writing to you to stop associating with any so-called brother if he is sexually immoral, greedy, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunk, or a robber. With such a person you must even stop eating.
(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."
*** (Proverbs 27:5-6) Open rebuke is better than secret love.
(Pro 27:6) Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
*** (Luke 17:3) Take heed to yourselves. If your brother trespasses against you; rebuke him. And if he repents; forgive him.
*** (1Timothy 5:20) Those who sin, rebuke before all; so that the rest also may fear [God].
