“Rivers of ‘Living Water’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(John 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. [Luke 22:49 & Acts 2:1-to-6]
*** (Luke 24:48-49) And you are witnesses of these things.
(Luke 24:49) And, behold, I [Jesus] send the ‘Promise’ of My Father [God] upon you: but you tarry in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with [Holy Spirit] Power from on High [God].
*** (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 Helper [Holy Spirit] 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 8:21-to-24]
(John 16:10) of Righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me;
(John 16:11) and of judgment, because the ruler [Satan] of this world has been judged. [1Jn 5:19]
(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 will glorify Me [Jesus]; for He will take what [John 17:17] is Mine and declare it to you.
(John 16:15) All that the Father has is Mine. That is why I [Jesus] said, 'He [Holy Spirit] will take what is Mine and declare it to you.'
*** (Acts 11:26) When he found him, he brought him to Antioch, and for a whole year they were guests of the church and taught a large crowd. It was in Antioch that the ‘disciples’ were first called “Christians”.
Are ‘You’ Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God…? Sorry NO, I did not ask ‘You’: IF You were a Christian! Ask 10 people and ‘You’ will probably get “10-different definitions” of that the word “Christian!” There are many Christians who wrongly think they know “PLENTY” about “Supposed Prophecy Happenings”. Any Born Again who has studied the Scripture, “Both OT & NT” can easily see where these ‘Modern Prophecy’ teachers are going. They always “Try & FIT” into the News; “OT & NT Prophecy”. They often “CHANGE” their teaching, as often as the News changes. Simply look what they did only eleven years ago with, “9-11”…? What is more important than knowing “Future Happenings”…? What “EXACTLY” did Christ Jesus say about this…? Is what Christ Jesus said in “Luke 24:44”: more important than ‘Future Prophecy’…? Please answer: “Yes or No”…?
*** (Luke 24:44) Then He [Jesus] said to them, "These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you –> that everything written about Me in the law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms had to be fulfilled."
(Luke 24:45) Then He opened their minds so that they might come to understand the Scriptures.
*** (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]
*** (Matthew 22:41-to-46) While the Pharisees were gathered, Jesus asked them,
(Matt 22:42) saying, What do you think of Christ? Whose son is He? They say to Him, David's.
(Matt 22:43) He [Jesus] said to them, How then does David by the Spirit call Him [Christ] Lord, saying,
(Matt 22:44) "The LORD said to my Lord, Sit on My right until I make Your enemies Your footstool for Your feet?" [Psalms 110:1-to-7 & Hebrews 1:1-to-14]
(Matt 22:45) If David then calls Him Lord, how is He his son?
(Matt 22:46) And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day to question Him anymore.
Question: “How is HE his Son”…?
*** (Isaiah 55:1-2-3) Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat. Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
(Isa 55:2) Why do you weigh silver for what is not bread? and your labor for what never satisfies? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
(Isa 55:3) Bow down your ear, and come to Me [God]; hear, and your soul shall live; and I [God] will make an “Everlasting Covenant” with you; even the sure mercies of David.
Answer: “Christ Jesus” is of the ‘Human Lineage’ of David.
*** (Hebrews 5:7-8-9) For Jesus, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying’s and tears to Him [God]; Who was able to save Him [Jesus] from death, and was heard in that He [Jesus] feared [God],
(Heb 5:8) though being a Son, yet He [Jesus] learned obedience by the things which He suffered. [Luke 22:42 & Matthew 26:39 & Mark 14:36]
(Heb 5:9) And being perfected, He [Jesus] became the Author of “Eternal Salvation” to all those who ‘obey’ Him, [John 7:38-39]
*** (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]
The Anointing – 101 Blog about the Holy Spirit
*** (2Peter 1:20-21) First of all, you must understand this: No prophecy in Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, [opinion]
(2Pe 1:21) Because no prophecy; ever originated through a human decision. Instead, men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) For this cause we do not faint; but though our outward man perishes, yet the inward man is being renewed = day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]
Many who call themselves Christian… do ‘Not’ rely on the Holy Spirit for their understanding of the Holy Word of God! The Holy Word of GOD… must be learned by your heart and ‘Not’ only by your head. There is a group in “Christianity”: who holds ‘Only’ to the KJV Bible. They will “NOT” even look at the “OT Hebrew & NT Greek”. They do not realize that their Modern KJV is not the “1611 KJV!” There is another group that uses “Commentaries” in order to try and understand the Scriptures. Why then did Christ Jesus tell us about the Holy Spirit of GOD? Should He just have told us to wait for the ‘Commentaries?’ Remember ‘Commentaries’ are only and educated guess on what the Scriptures really say. Man’s Opinion and NOT Necessarily that of God. Don’t get me wrong, I sometimes use one along with ‘Bible maps’ to find a location or the particular historical event. Perhaps a question, “Do You ‘Pray & Prepare’ your Heart: before ‘You’ study the Scriptures”…? Do ‘You’ ask the Holy Spirit of God to teach ‘You’: from the Holy Word of GOD… that Christ Jesus may be glorified in your study of His Holy Word…? If Not, Why Not…?
“What do ‘You’ know about ‘Prayer?” – 101” …Blog.
*** (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.
“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”!
*** (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. [1Corinthains 16:22]
*** (Galatians 2:16) Knowing that a man is “Not Justified”: -> by works of the Law: -> but through Faith in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ: -> that we might be Justified by the faith in Christ: -> and ‘Not’ by works of the Law. For ALL flesh -> will ‘Not’ be justified: ->by works of law.
*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the law, because "The righteous will live by faith."
“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (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? [1Corinthains 16:22]
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah, that I [God] 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].
*** (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.
