“John the Baptist & the NT Born Again – 101” …Blog.
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them; whether they will hear; or whether they will forbear; for they are [most] rebellious. [2Timothy 4:1-to-4]
*** (Jeremiah 1:8) Do not be afraid of their faces; for I [God] am with you to deliver you, says the LORD Jehovah.
*** (Galatians 1:8-9) But even if we or an angel from Heaven preach a gospel to you beside what we preached to you, let him be Accursed. [Damned]
(Gal 1:9) As we said before, and now I say again, If anyone preaches a gospel to you beside what you have received, let him be Accursed. [Damned]
*** (Jeremiah 48:10) Cursed is he who does the work of Jehovah the LORD deceitfully; and cursed is he who keeps back his sword from blood. [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21]
*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes! [Again]
… Do YOU Present an Unbalanced Gospel…?
Unbalanced – 101 Blog.
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘NOT’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.
“MANY” NT Christians could take a lesson… from an in-depth study of the Scriptures and the life of ‘John the Baptist!’ He, being filled with the Holy Spirit; did NOT think it strange to Speak God’s Holy Word… to unbelievers! “MANY” here in America, who call themselves ‘Christians’ [?] and are ‘Fearful’ to share the Complete Truth… from the Bible. They often ‘Candy Cote’ the gospel and in doing so, “Deny: Christ Jesus!” Verse for verse, chapter for chapter, book for book: the Holy Word of GOD: speaks more about “Judgment & Damnation” than it does about “Heaven & Rewards”. The Bible contains… 1198 Chapters & 31,103 Verses! And ‘You’ say the Gospel is the “ONE… Only ‘You’ say”…? How can that be…? When I read my Bible, I can find the Gospel in each chapter of the Bible. How then can ‘You’ say… the Gospel is “ONLY” in those verses… “You Quote”…?
“Offending ‘Unbelievers?’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (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.
*** (2Corinthians 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.
*** (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]
*** (2Timothy 4:1-to-5) Therefore I solemnly witness before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is going to JUDGE the living and the dead according to His appearance and His kingdom,
(2Tim 4:2) Preach the Word, be Instant in season and out of season, Reprove, Rebuke, Exhort with all long-suffering and Doctrine.
(2Tim 4:3) For a time will be when they will NOT endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear.
(2Tim 4:4) And they will turn away their ears from the Truth and will be turned to myths.
(2Tim 4:5) But you watch in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fully carry out your ministry.
Could it be that TOO ‘Many’ Christians… are NOT: Truly Born Again, by the Holy Spirit of GOD…? Could it be that in “Name Only” they claim Him, as their “Savior & Lord”…? Could it be that in “DUPLICITY”: they speak with their mouth: but do NOT truly believe in their ‘Hearts”…? Could it be that they are Only protecting their beliefs: “Without” knowing the Scriptures…? How about some “Honest Answers”, to these ‘Questions’, “Please”…? John the Baptist was willing to lose his life for Christ. He told a “Heather Non Believer”… that “Remarriage Adultery” was: WRONG…! He was willing to PUT AWAY those “Kudos & Accolades’ from the ‘Religious Establishment’ for the TRUTH’S Sake…! Are You willing to stand for the Holy Word of GOD: no matter what the COST; in friends, family & your Face Book friends…? Yes, even from those who attend the same Church you do…? What is your cost, for following Christ Jesus…? Could it be perhaps You truly do NOT follow him… “Wholly”…?
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to You -> when “ALL” men shall speak well of You! For so their fathers did to the False Prophets.
*** (2Samuel 24:24) And the king said to Araunah, No, but I will surely buy from you at a price. = And I will not offer burnt offerings = to the LORD Jehovah my God = of that which costs me nothing. = And David bought the threshing-floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.

*** (1Jn 4:4) You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He [Romans 8:9] that is in you, than he [Satan] that is in the world. [1Jn 5:19]
What will He, Christ Jesus… say to You: when we all stand before “His Great White Throne JUDGMENT”…? Will You lose rewards because You failed to speak, when moved [Romans 8:14] by the Holy Spirit…? Could it be that You “Wrongly Believed” some teaching; ‘Without’ going to His Holy Word: to validate its Truth…? Please allow me to ask, “How long have You claimed that Christ Jesus was your “Savior & Lord”…? Please enter # of years “_____”…? Have You remained a baby in Christ or have You grown spiritually…? Can You take your Bible and defend EVERYTHING You believe, with Bible ‘Chapter & Verses’…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? Perhaps, “Myself” Included: should “ALL”… take a lesson from “John the Baptist”…?
*** (Matthew 11:11) Truly I [Jesus] say to you, Among those who have been born of women there has NOT risen a greater one than John the Baptist. But the least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he.
*** (1Corinthians 3:11-to-15) For any other foundation can no one lay than the one being laid, Who is Jesus Christ.
(1Cor 3:12) And if anyone builds on this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble,
(1Cor 3:13) each one's work shall be revealed. For the Day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is.
(1Cor 3:14) IF anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) IF anyone's work shall be burned up, he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved, yet so as by fire.
*** (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.
(Luke 24:46) He said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ was to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that Repentance and Forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in His name to ALL the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) You are witnesses of these things.
(Luke 24:49) I [Jesus] am sending on you what My Father [God] promised. But stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high." [John 7:38-39]
*** (Isaiah 6:8) And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said: –> Here am I: –> send me!
“Reasonable Service – 101” …Blog.
*** (Romans 12:1-to-4) I therefore urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercies, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices that are holy and pleasing to God, for this is the reasonable way for you to worship.
(Rom 12:2) “Do Not” be conformed to this world; but continually be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God's will is -> what is proper, pleasing, and perfect. [2Corinthains 10:3-to-6]
(Rom 12:3) For by the grace given to me I ask every one of you ‘Not’ to think of yourself more highly than you should think; rather to think of yourself with sober judgment on the measure of faith that God has assigned each of you.
(Rom 12:4) For we have many parts in one body; but these parts do ‘Not’ all have the same function [office].
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your best to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the Word of Truth with Precision.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,
*** (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.
“What are the ‘Greater Works’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Micah 6:8) He has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?
*** (1Samuel 2:30) And the LORD Jehovah, the God of Israel says, I said indeed, Your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever. = But now Jehovah the LORD says, = Be it far from Me! = For those who honor Me [God] I will honor, = and those that think little of Me shall be lightly regarded.
