“Which ‘Church’ is Right? – 101” Blog.
*** (Hebrews 12:22-to-25) Instead, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, to tens of thousands of angels joyfully gathered together,
(Heb 12:23) to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, to a judge Who is the God of all, to the spirits of righteous people who have been made perfect,
(Heb 12:24) to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant; and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better message than Abel's.
(Heb 12:25) See to it that you do not ignore the One who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they ignored the one who warned them on earth; how much less will we escape if we turn away from the One who is from heaven!
*** (Revelation 20:10) And the Devil who deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were. And he will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
(Rev 20:11) And I saw a great white throne, and Him sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And a place was not found for them.
(Rev 20:12) And I saw the dead, the small and the great, stand before God. And books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
(Rev 20:13) And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death and hell delivered up the dead in them. And each one of them was judged according to their works.
(Rev 20:14) And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.
(Rev 20:15) And if ‘anyone’ was not found having been written in the Book of Life: –> was he was cast into the Lake of Fire.
*** (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.
When someone asks that ‘Question’… they really mean: “Which Denomination?” The Bible was written in OT Hebrew & NT Greek. The word translated “Church” simply means in the English: “The Called Out Ones”…! But called out from ‘What?’ Called out of “One Denomination” into “Another Denomination”…? Sorry NO…! All Denominations are… “Man Made” and MOST do not follow the Bible: Nor teach its Truths! Each one has their Own Denomination Guidelines: Most of which are “OUTSIDE” of the Precepts of the Bible: The Holy Word of GOD! Say it isn’t ‘So’…? Well it surely is! Simply use the Internet and check out “Any” Denomination Guidelines & Charters…? Are they all identical or do they vary…? There is even the “First Church of the Rodney King”…! [Hyperbole] Their motto is… “Can’t we all, ‘Just’ Get Along”…?
*** (Colossians 1:10-to-15) so that you might live in a manner worthy of the Lord and be fully pleasing to Him; as you bear fruit in every good work and grow in the full knowledge of God.
(Col 1:11) You are being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might, so that you might patiently endure everything with joy. [Romans 8:9]
(Col 1:12) and might thank the Father [God]; Who has enabled us to share in the saints' inheritance in the light.
(Col 1:13) He has rescued us from the power of darkness and has brought us into the kingdom of the Son [Christ Jesus]; Whom He [God] loves.
(Col 1:14) In Him [Christ Jesus] we have redemption; the forgiveness of sins.
(Col 1:15) He [Christ Jesus] is the image of the invisible God; the firstborn over all creation.
*** (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.
“Crippled by ‘Religion’ – 101”
*** (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.
*** (2John 1:9-10-11) Everyone transgressing and Not abiding in the doctrine of Christ; does Not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has Both the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If ANYONE comes to you and does Not bring this doctrine; Do NOT receive him into your house; Nor speak a greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who Speaks a greeting to him; Is Partaker of his EVIL deeds.

*** (Galatians 4:16) So then did I become your enemy; speaking to you the “Truth?”
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know the Truth; but because you know it; and know that -> ‘No Lie’ is of -> the Truth.
“What is a ‘Christian’? – 101” …Blog. [1/2]
*** (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!
Most will defend their “Denomination”… and its beliefs! That is because “MOST” who say they are Christians: are “NOT” Truly Born Again; by the Holy Spirit of God. They have ONLY their “Denominational Thinking” and often are ‘Upset’… when they are “Challenged” by someone using the Holy Word of God. They will often tell that person, “God says Not to Judge”: simply taking those verses from Matthew 7 or Luke 6: “Completely out of Context!” Another response might be by: ‘Picking & Choosing’ SELECTED Bible verses and: “Discarding” the appropriate ones! Are those who are “Truly Born Again”, the Bride of Christ: “To Judge” or “Not”…? Please answer this question before reading any more…? Did ‘You’ miss the above Bible verses, “Hebrews 5:11-to-14”…?
“Pick & Choose ‘Christian’s’? – 101”
*** (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.
*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
*** (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 “Damnation”. [1Corinthains 16:22]
… It is “Demanded… by the Scriptures”…. that we “Choose [JUDGE]”… between “Good & Evil”… by “JUDGING”… by Using the Holy Word of God!
“Judge not – 101”…Blog.
*** (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."
“Church or ‘Home’ Church? – 101” …Blog.
What is the ‘Real Issue’ in this Discussion…? No, it is NOT which denomination or Church is Correct: because All Denominations are “MAN MADE”…! It is simply ‘One’ and only ‘One’…! Are You Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God, Born From Above…? “Yes or No”…? It is as simple as: Are ‘You’: “Dead or Alive”…? Are ‘You’: “Pregnant or Not”…? One who is Truly Born Again, “Truly –> KNOWS IT”… because of the Indwelling Holy Spirit of God…! They also have a Love for God, Other True Believers and for the “TRUTH” of the Holy Word of God…! His True Children will Always put THE BIBLE… before “Any and ALL Denominations & their Teachings”…!
*** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) 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].
“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 15:22-23-24) If I [Jesus] had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
(John 15:23) He who hates Me [Jesus] hates My Father [God] also.
(John 15:24) If I had not done among them the works which no other did, they would not have had sin. But now they have both seen and hated Me [Jesus] and My Father [God].
*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
(2Tim 2:16) But shun profane, vain babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) From infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures that are able to give you the wisdom you need for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Ti 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
(2Ti 3:17) so that the man of God may be complete; and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a fire? Says the LORD Jehovah; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? [Hebrews 4:11-12-13]
