“Do You read these ‘Blogs’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with ALL your getting get Understanding.
*** (Luke 12:5) But I [Jesus] will warn you of Whom you shall fear: Fear Him [GOD] Who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yea, I [Jesus] say to you, fear Him [God].
*** (Job 28:28) And to man He said, Behold, the fear of the Lord; that is Wisdom! And to depart from evil, is Understanding!
*** (Deuteronomy 5:29) O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear Me [God]; and keep all My commandments always; that it might be well with them and with their children forever!
Why do I write these Blogs…? They are only an ‘Adjunct’ to encourage my “Brothers & Sisters” in Christ… to study the Scriptures: for yourselves! They are simply used as… “Bait”… to entice You to see for Yourselves: what God has said in His Holy Word! When Christians treat their Bibles as ONLY a book… they MISS: the Holiness of God! They also miss what He has given to US… so that we might “Grow in Grace” and IN the “Knowledge of HIM”…! If His Holy Word is NOT Precious to You… then just perhaps You do NOT: really Know HIM as your… “Savior & Lord”…? Do I dare suggest that…? Do I care enough for the Body of Christ, His Bride, His Church… to say such things…? Absolutely YES…! [Psalms 119:136]
*** (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? [Jude 1:19]
*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and does NOT receive My Words; has One who judges him; the Word that I [Jesus] have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”. [Ecclesiastes 12:13-14]
*** (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]
*** (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 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 [Jesus] Never Knew You! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!
“Daily: Spiritual ‘Decisions’ – 101”…Blog.
Are You “Spiritually” Dry…? Or have You lost your… “First Love for Jesus”…? Or have You become so ‘Complacent’ that YOU have Substituted: “Church or Music or Preaching”…? And have they taken the place of His Holy Word…? Have You quenched the Indwelling Holy Spirit… so that You no longer listen to: His “Promptings & Leadings”…? Can You, “NO Longer Discern”… “God’s TRUTH”… from that of a “Social Pseudo [?] Christianity”…? When one speaks can You say… “That is ‘NOT’ what My Bible Says”…! Or do You, just believe ‘Each & Everything’… spoken by anyone who “Falsely Claims to be a “Pastor, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher”… even though they are “NOT Really ONE”…? There is enough “Dishonesty, Deceit & LIES”… already among those who call themselves Christians [?]. Over half have Divorced and Remarried into “Adultery” [Mark 10:11-12] in the Churches…? Say it isn’t “SO”…?
*** (1Peter 4:17-18-19) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
(1Pet 4:19) Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing, as to a Faithful Creator. [Genesis 18:25]
*** (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.
*** (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 [discern] good from evil.
*** (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!
*** (2Timothy 2:3) Join me in suffering like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 2:4) No one serving in the military = gets mixed up in civilian matters = for his aim is to please his commanding officer. [Christ Jesus]
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one who is an athlete wins a prize = unless he competes according to the rules.
*** (Matthew 13:12) For whoever has, to him shall be given; and he shall have more abundance. But whoever does not have; from him shall be taken away; even that which he has.
“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
May I simply “Share”… some of the ‘Complaints’ I have received…? First of all, “False Accusations”… that I do NOT know what I am speaking about. Those who do this… “Absolutely NEVER”… ‘Present what they believe’, the Scriptures really teach. Could it be that they, “Really do NOT know, and are Ashamed of their Ignorance”…? [1Corinthians 14:38] Shouldn’t One present a “Scriptural Alternative”… to the topic…? Or is simply: “Only Naysaying” enough for the “Truly Ignorant”…? Then there is the ‘Complaint’ that I use too much “Scripture and Not Enough Dialogue”…? [2Corinthains 13:1] Could it be that they “REALLY: DO NOT KNOW”… what the Holy Word of God… “Truly Teaches”…? [Jude 1:3-4] When one is “Truly Born Again” by the Holy Spirit, isn’t the Holy Spirit ENOUGH… to teach that one..? But what IF they do NOT… “Read & Study & Obey”… His Holy Word…? Then they will remain, “Carnal: and NOT Spiritual”..! [2Corinthains 13:5]
“Don’t Believe Me – 101”…Blog. [1/2]
*** (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]
*** (Matthew 24:23-24-25) Then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ! Or, There! Do not believe it.
(Matt 24:24) For false Christ’s and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, I [Jesus] -> have told you beforehand.
*** (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.
*** (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].
Contained within these Blogs… are an ‘Outlook’ at God’s Truth… and NOT the “False American Christianity [?] Mindset!” I have stepped outside “Opinions” and offered another way of ‘Examining’ God’s Truth BY… “Always Keeping His HOLY WORD”… as the Only point of reference! Why do You think the Jews’ of Jesus day, didn’t believe the Scriptures. [John 5:39-40] They had “Substituted” their ‘Jewish Mindset’ [Exodus 20:19-20]… for what His Holy Word: has really said. Today in America, “MANY” who call His Blessed Name… would rather take their… “Church, Preacher or Denomination’s Teaching!” Remember “All Denominations” are human “Man Made Opinions!” Isn’t what God said in His Holy Word… “Enough”…? Also contained within these blogs are sometimes comments, such as [or Not] such as in “Acts 17:11”, listed above. IF one searches the Scriptures, they “Must” conclude, ‘What is said is Truth’… [or Not]! Also are listed adjunct Scripture references to the posted Scriptures, contained in [ ] brackets. Do You look up these Scripture references or just pass over them…?
*** (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.

“Is the Gospel = Magic? – 101” …Blog.
Also contained within these blogs… are “Other” blog links of as a ‘similar or applicable’ topic information links. These simply expand on this thought train. May I ask You a question…?

True Biblical Confession happens ‘Only’ –> when we are willing to take that… “Personal Responsibility” of: –> “My Sins Nailed ‘HIM’ [Christ Jesus]:–> there to that Cross”…!
“What is ‘Confession’ of SIN – 101” …Blog.
*** (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].
