“The Microscope – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man = does “NOT”… receive the things [WORD] of the Spirit of God; for they are = “FOOLISHNESS” = to him; Neither can he = Know = them; because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (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]
*** (John 16:13-14-15) Yet when the 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 7:38-39]
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
(John 16:15) All that the Father has is mine. That is why I said, 'He will take what is mine and declare it to you.'
A College professor had a new… group of students for the Semester. They were disappointed and confounded when they were told of their assignment. They were each given ‘One Slide’ to be examined with a Microscope and to write out their conclusions. That one slide would be the “Only Test & the Final Test” of that Class. Perplexed, some chose to leave and find another class. Others took the assignment passed the class. If You have ever used such laboratory equipment, then You know what I mean. The More You “LOOK”… the more You “SEE!” Of course You have heard the expression, “A Picture is worth a Thousand words!” In either in the “Macro or Micro” Universe; Gods’ Creation is without words: in its ‘Majesty & Complexity’…! Can You make this “Application” to His Holy Word… “Also”…?
*** (Psalms 19:1-2-3) To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork.
(Psa 19:2) Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
(Psa 19:3) There is no speech nor are there words; their voice is not heard.
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.
“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
*** (Proverbs 30:4) Who has gone up to Heaven and has come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know.
Do You have a Daily Quiet Time… where You meet with your Savior & Lord: In His Holy Word? I have, for a number of years. His Holy Spirit leads the True Believer into HIS TRUTH: found in His Holy Word. This “INDWELLING [Romans 8:9] Holy Spirit” is what Salvation: is all about. Without HIM, one cannot possibly understand: His Holy Word! Without HIM, one will make excuses Why: they do Not believe the ‘Totality’ of His Holy Word! Without HIM, one will be EASILY: ‘Led Astray’ with False Teaching: by False Teachers! Without HIM, one is NOT Truly Born Again: and is “NOT” Truly His child! The Holy Spirit of God is given to the True Believer: ONLY BY a transaction from GOD: When He sees their “Heart” & their “Response to His Calling”…!
*** (John 6:44) NO ONE, can come to Me [Jesus]: Unless the Father [God]: Who has sent Me draw him, and I will raise him up at the last day.
*** (John 6:37) All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will in NO way cast out.
*** (Acts 15:8-9) And God, Who knows their HEARTS: bore them witness, Giving them the Holy Spirit, even as to us. [Romans 8:9]
(Acts 15:9) And He put NO difference between us [Jews] and them [Gentiles]: purifying their hearts by Faith. [Ephesians 2:8-9-10]
*** (Luke 14:26-17) If anyone comes to Me [Jesus]: and does NOT hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he Cannot: be My disciple.
(Luke 14:27) And whoever does NOT bear his cross and come after Me; he Cannot be My disciple.
*** (Acts 17:30-31) And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now [Strictly] Commands ALL men everywhere to Repent:
(Acts 17:31) Because He hath appointed a day, in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man [Christ Jesus] Whom: He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto ALL men; in that He [God] has raised Him [Jesus] from the dead. [John 10:17-18]
*** (Revelation 20:12-to-15) 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, he was cast into the Lake of Fire.
“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.
read through His Holy Word… the Bible: several times a year? I often ask Him, “Lord, where do You want me to ‘Read & Study’ NEXT…?” He leads me [Romans 8:14] into a specific book. Sometimes, He keeps me in a particular Book: for up to a month. It is amazing how His Holy Spirit: will reveal His TRUTH: from something I only read the day before! And the next day, even something new from the same passage. That is “How & Why” the Holy Word of God is called: “Living & Powerful!” [Hebrews 4:11-12-13] When I was a New Christian, I spent time mostly in the NT, with occasional jaunts to the OT. With my ‘Spiritual Growth’ ONLY by His Grace, Mercy & Love: I came to obey ‘His Leadings’: What to Read & Study Where! [Romans 8:14] In this way, He was teaching me: Simple Obedience & being able to ‘Discern’ His leadings.
*** (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].
*** (John 8:29) And He [God] Who sent Me [Jesus] is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone; for I -> Always DO -> those things; which please Him.
*** (1Kings 19:9-to-12) And he came there to a cave and stayed there. And behold, the Word of the LORD 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 the LORD 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 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.
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word: and NOT merely hearers: who “DECEIVE” themselves.
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and do ‘Not’ do - what I [Jesus] say?
*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) And He [Jesus] said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me.
(Luke 24:45) And He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He said to them, So it is written, and so it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among ALL nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are witnesses of these things.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
“Not by Bread ‘Alone’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Luke 4:4) Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'One must Not live on bread alone; but on every word of God." [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]
WHAT have You ‘Replaced’… your time with Him: Daily, in His Holy Word “WITH”…? Yes, there are many demands on our lives daily. In the ‘New Testament’, Christ Jesus is referred to as the “Bread of Life”. He is also the Living Word, which is considered ‘food’ for our souls. We need to feed our Spiritual Bodies… with the ‘Manna’ of the Holy Word of God. The ‘Manna’ is simply a “Word Picture” of that which we need for our spiritual sustenance to maintain our ‘Spiritual Life’. What else would we feed ourselves with…? That junk on the TV and Videos…? How about that ‘Pseudo Christian’ music… which may or not be… “Scriptural”.
*** (John 6:63-to-65) It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I [Jesus] speak to you are Spirit and are Life. [Eternal]
(Joh 6:64) But there are some of you who do ‘Not’ believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe; and who is the one betraying Him.
(Joh 6:65) And He [Jesus] said, Because of this I said to you that no one can come to Me unless it was given to him from My Father [God].
(Joh 6:66) From this time “MANY” of His disciples went back into the things behind, and walked no more with Him.
Did you know that… that “Hidden Manna” can only be revealed by the ‘Holy Spirit’ indwelling those that are “Born Again” by Him…? That is why religious people do not understand the Bible, the Word of God, and the “God of the Word”. Spiritual food is only for spiritual people; and Not for dead people. All of us, who ‘now’… are born from above, by God’s Holy Spirit… were ‘once dead’ to Gods Spiritual Truth in His Word. [Romans 8:9]
“It is Written – 101” …Blog.
*** (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”.
Love; in Christ, Roger // “Psalms 138:2”…!
