“Do You know your OT Scriptures? – 101” …Blog.

“Do You know your OT Scriptures? – 101” …Blog.

*** (Luke 24:44-to-49) 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 [Jesus].
(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.
(Luke 24:49) And behold, I [Jesus] send the [Holy Spirit] promise [John 7:38-39] of My Father [God] on you. But you sit in the city of Jerusalem “Until” you are clothed with power from on high. [Acts 2:1-to-5]

*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.

*** (Psalms 119:97-to-104) MEM: Oh how I love Your Law! It is my meditation all the day.
(Psa 119:98)  Through Your Commandments You make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
(Psa 119:99) I have more understanding than all my teachers; for Your testimonies are my prayer. [Psalms 19:7-to-14]
(Psa 119:100) I understand more than the old men, because I keep Your Commandments.
(Psa 119:101) I have kept my feet from every evil way, so that I might keep Your Word.
(Psa 119:102) I have not departed from Your judgments; for You have taught me.
(Psa 119:103) How sweet are Your Words to my taste! More than honey to my mouth!
(Psa 119:104) Through Your Commandments I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

Surely You know the 23rd Psalm… “The Lord is my Shepard, I shall not want!” But what about the rest of the “OT Scriptures”…? Many who say they are “Christians [?]”… say they are “Forgiven”… and yet “Cannot Explain”… “Salvation & Justification & Forgiveness”: by the  “Faith, Grace, Mercy & Love of God”…! “CAN YOU” take your Bible… and PROVE: your “Salvation & Justification & Forgiveness” with the Scriptures…? If You Cannot: just perhaps You are “Not TRULY: Born Again”, by the Holy Spirit of God…? Why do I say such things, with the boldness of God and the “Complete Authority of His Holy Word”…? It is because the… “MANY”: of Matthew 7:21-22-23… are among us. Are You the… “Salt of the World”… as Christ Jesus: “SAID”…? Or are you LIKE the ‘Jews of Jesus day’, who worshiped God with their “Mouths: ONLY”…? Are You only one of the “Sheepel”… OR are You a “True Disciple” of Christ Jesus, “Lord of Lords” & “King of Kings”…? Perhaps You are simply a… “Parrot”… who repeats what they have heard: WITHOUT knowing the Scriptures, the Holy Word of God…? The Catholics BLINDLY follow the Pope! Do You BLINDLY follow your “Church or Denomination”… in the “Same Way”…? And Please… DO “NOT” TELL ME… “I know, what I know, what I know”...!

*** (Matthew 5:13) You are the salt of the world. But if the salt should lose its taste; how can it be made salty again? It's good for Nothing but to be thrown out and trampled on by people.

*** (Matthew 23:24) Blind guides who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!

 “Bible Study: Academic or ‘Worship?’ – 101” …Blog
*** (Proverbs 27:17) Iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the face of his friend.

*** (Titus 2:11-to-15) For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. [Psalms 98:2]
(Tit 2:12) It trains us to Renounce ungodly living and worldly passions SO that we might live Sensible, Honest, and Godly lives in the present world
(Tit 2:13) as we Wait for the blessed hope and the glorious Appearance of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. [Zachariah 12:10]
(Tit 2:14) He [Christ] gave Himself for us to set us free from every wrong and to cleanse us so that we could be His Special People who are enthusiastic about good works.
(Tit 2:15) These are the things you should say. Encourage and Refute: with Full Authority. Do not let anyone look down on you.

*** (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.

Isn’t it about Time – 101 ?

Surely You know the “Debauched Spiritual Condition”… of our American Society? I see Christians [?] posting about the IRS, the President, The Supreme Court decisions and a plethora of other “Declining Social Conditions!”  And YET, those same “Christians [?]” say they “Love Jesus”…? Don’t You remember, He said, “My Kingdom is NOT of this world: John 18:36-37…? And yet, those ‘Claiming’ to be HIS… NEVER: speak out about… “Sin, Righteousness & Judgment”…! Yet, “Each & Every DAY”… “Over 4,000+ Innocent Unborn Babies –> are Murdered in Abortion Clinics!” Christians [?] are getting divorced and remarried into Adultery “Mark 10:11-12”…? When was the last time… “You read through the OT”…? Did You compare those verses with the ones in the NT… and their Fulfillment…? MANY speak about the forthcoming “Prophecy & the Last Days!” And YET: Cannot take their Bibles and “Cannot Explain”… “Salvation & Justification & Forgiveness: by the “Faith, Grace, Mercy & Love of God”…! These same ones: were the ONES… who said that the “9-11” terrorist attacks were the “Last Days Now!” Remember that was only 11 years ago! AND there has been “NO Spiritual Growth” or “Evidence of Salvation”… in their ‘Same Lives’ since then. They still DO NOT know their Bibles… or HOW to defend the “TRUTH FAITH”…!

*** (John 16:7-to-15) But I [Jesus] tell you the Truth, it is expedient for you that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you. But if I depart, I will send Him to you. [Acts 2:1-to-5]
(John 16:8) And when that One comes, He will convict the world concerning Sin, and concerning Righteousness, and concerning Judgment. [Revelation 20:10-to-15]
(John 16:9) Concerning Sin, because they do not believe on Me;
(John 16:10) Concerning Righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
(John 16:11) Concerning Judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
(John 16:12) I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
(John 16:13) However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into All Truth. For He shall not speak of Himself, but whatever He hears, He shall speak. And He will announce to you things to come. [John 14:16-17 & John 17:17]
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me, for He will receive of Mine and will announce it to you.
(John 16:15) All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and will announce it to you.

*** (James 4:4-to-10) You Adulterers and Adulteresses! Don't you know that friendship with the world means hostility [War] with God? So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God. [Matthew 6:24 & Luke 16:13]
(Jas 4:5) Or do you think the Scripture means nothing: when it says that the Spirit that God caused to live in us jealously yearns for us? [Joshua 24:19]
(Jas 4:6) But He gives all the more grace. And so He says, "God opposes the arrogant: but gives grace to the humble." [2Corinthains 12:6-to-10 & Hebrews 4:16]
(Jas 4:7) Therefore, Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
(Jas 4:8) Come close to God, and He will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and Purify your hearts, you double-minded.
(Jas 4:9) Be Miserable, Mourn, and Cry. [Repent] Let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy into gloom.
(Jas 4:10) Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.

*** (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”.

“Confession ‘WITHOUT’ Repentance – 101” …Blog.
*** (Proverbs 28:13) He who covers his sins shall NOT be blessed; but whoever confesses and leaves [Forsakes] them shall have mercy.

*** (Romans 6:1-2) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(Rom 6:2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘Unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD [Jeremiah 13:23]

Why do NT Christians [?]… & Others… Always Quote: the “Word Promises” about OT ISRAEL… and “NEVER” -> speak about the “Cursing’s” -> for “NOT” Obeying: the LAW…?

*** (Joshua 8:34) And afterward he read ‘ALL’ the words of the Law; the Blessings and -> Cursing’s <- span=""> according to ‘ALL’ that is written in the book of the Law.

Do You meet with Christ Jesus… “DAILY: in His Holy Word”…? Why then do You say that You are a Christian [?]…? Surely You cannot work a secular job without orders from your “Boss?” GOD is continually speaking… “THROUGH”… His Holy Word! People share with me that the Holy Spirit is leading them. How can that BE… “IF You” Do NOT Know HIS HOLY WORD”…? The “Will of the LORD”… = “Always Equals” = … “His Holy Word!” “Nothing More/Nothing Less”…! The Holy Spirit uses the WORD… to validate the Truth of God! “WITHOUT”… Knowing His Holy Word… “How does ONE Know”… that they are led BY: the Spirit of God = OR = by a “Satanic Angel of Light”…?

*** (1Jn 4:1) Beloved, do Not believe every spirit, but try the spirits to see if they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

*** (1Corinthains 14:32) The spirits of prophets [True or False] are subject to the prophets [True or False],

*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are from God and that the whole world lies under the control of the Evil One. [Satan!]

*** (2Corinthians 11:13-14) For such ones are False Apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves - into the Apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an –> ANGEL of LIGHT?

*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who secretly will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And -> Many <- span=""> will follow their pernicious ways; and because of them the way of Truth: will be evil spoken of. [John 7:17 & Jeremiah 23:29]

*** (Acts 17:11) These people were more receptive than those in Thessalonica. They were very willing to receive the message, and every day they carefully examined the Scriptures to see if those things were so. [Or NOT!]

“Once, I was BLIND – 101” …Blog.

Once, I was BLIND – 101” …Blog.

*** (Exodus 4:11) And the LORD Jehovah said to him, Who has made man's Mouth? Or Who makes the Dumb, or Deaf, or the Seeing, or the Blind? Have not I, the LORD Jehovah?

*** (John 9:23-24-25) Therefore his parents said, He is of age, ask him.
(John 9:24) Then a second time they called the man who was blind and said to him, Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.
(John 9:25) He answered and said, Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that being Blind, now I see.

*** (Luke 4:17-to-21) And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him [Jesus]. And unrolling the book, He found the place where it was written,
(Luke 4:18) "The Spirit of the Lord is on Me; because of this He has anointed Me to proclaim the Gospel to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, and new sight to the Blind, to set at liberty those having been crushed,
(Luke 4:19) to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
(Luke 4:20) And rolling up the book, returning it to the attendant, He sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on Him.
(Luke 4:21) And He began to say to them, Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your ears.

*** (Luke 24:44-to-49) 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 [Jesus].
(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.
(Luke 24:49) And behold, I [Jesus] send the Promise [John 7:38-339] of My Father [God] on you. But you sit in the city of Jerusalem until you are clothed with [Holy Spirit] Power from on High. [Acts 2:1-to-5]

Once, I was Blind: and so were You…! Only those “Truly Born Again” by the Holy Spirit of God, can truly SEE: God’s Truth! The Promised Holy Spirit is the “ONE”… who translates God’s Truth, from His Holy Word: to our… “Souls, Minds, Hearts & Understandings!” The rest of mankind is Spiritually Blinded: by Satan. That Blindness is lifted ONLY: by the Grace, Mercy & Love of God… within the context of Salvation. He, the Holy Spirit is the ONLY Real Teacher of God’s Truth! Surely some Preacher may communicate… “Only Limited Understanding”… but the Holy Spirit is the ONE… Who enables You to Understand! This understanding comes as You yield yourselves to His Holy Word. You must ‘choose’ to make His Holy Word: the mainstay of your Life! It is not magic nor does it come by osmosis!  This engrafted Holy Word is the… ‘Living Out’ of His: Life of God [The Holy Spirit]: within You! Your free will, enables You to make this choice or ‘Not!’ How many times will You tell God… “NO I won’t”…?

*** (2Corinthains 4:3) So if our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are Dying.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, the god of this world [Satan]; has Blinded the minds of those who do Not believe: to keep them from seeing the Light of the glorious gospel of Christ; Who is the image of God. [Colossians 1:12-to-19]

*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me Draw [Compel] him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

*** (John 6:37) All that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus]; shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me; I will in no way cast out.

*** (John 5:39-40) You examine the Scriptures carefully because you suppose = that in them you have eternal life.  Yet they testify about Me [Jesus].
(John 5:40) But you are ‘NOT’ willing to come to Me [Jesus] to have life.

*** (1Corinthians 9:27) No, I keep on beating my body and making it my slave so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will Not somehow be disqualified.

*** (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]

Many used to read their Bibles… as a ‘supposed’ act of worship. They did Not understand His Holy Word, because they are Not Born Again. They looked to some Preacher or Teacher or Denomination, to tell then ‘What to Believe!’ They are simply ‘Parrots’, repeating what they heard, without any understanding. When they were ‘Challenged’… their retort was, “Christians are ‘Not’ supposed to Argue!” Or, “You are Judging me!” Or often times, “Don’t pay any attention to them, they are Bible Thumpers!” I wonder what they will say, when WE: All stand before Christ Jesus as our Judge…? He will “ONLY” use His Holy Word… “Nothing More/Nothing Less!” Will they call Christ Jesus a… ‘Bible Thumper: Also’…?

*** (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”.

“Where do Christians go ‘?’ – 101” …Blog.

 “Where do Christians go ‘Wrong?’ – 201” …Blog.

*** (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.

*** (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,

*** (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.

*** (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]

*** (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?

Can You take the Holy Word of God… and link together Scriptures verses. That is how the Holy Spirit gives You understanding.  It is called the Doctrine [Teaching] of Christ Jesus.  The United States are “Contiguous”, except for Alaska & Hawaii. They touch each other and share some of the same climates and food appetites. So also those Born Again, can have fellowship among themselves: when they allow the Holy Spirit to teach them. One more time, He, the Holy Spirit is the “OLNY”… Real Teacher of the Truth of God! One may graduate from Bible School and have Only the Academic understanding of the Bible. But when the Holy Spirit teaches You… this study becomes an “Act of Worship!” How about You…? Perhaps up to know, You have been depending on others for God’s Truth? Why do You think, that He gave You: the “Holy Spirit”…?

*** (John 14:16) And I [Jesus] will pray the Father [God], and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may be with you forever,
(John 14:17) the Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive because it does Not see Him nor know Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you.

*** (Matthew 11:27-to-30) All things are delivered to Me [Jesus] by My Father [God]. And no one knows the Son [Jesus]: except the Father [God]. Nor does anyone know the Father [God] except the Son [Jesus], and the one [You] –> to whom the Son [Jesus] will reveal Him [God].
(Mat 11:28) Come to Me [Jesus] all you who labor and are heavy laden; and I will give you rest.
(Mat 11:29) Take My yoke on you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.
(Mat 11:30) For My yoke is easy; and My burden is light.

*** (Act 15:8-9) God, Who knows everyone's Heart, showed them He Approved by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us.
(Act 15:9) He made No distinction between them [Jews] and us [Gentiles], because He cleansed their hearts by faith. [Ephesians 2:8-9-10 & John 7:38-39]

“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”!

“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.

Do You meet with Christ Jesus… in His Holy Word: “Daily?” How long have You been telling Others… that You know Him? Is it time to… “Start Again”… or to just continue in the “Apathy of Life”…? Remember the ‘Opinions of Others’, do NOT count. Only the Opinion of God! (Luke 17:10) (Romans 12:1-to-4) (Isaiah 6:8)

*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed: Day by Day. [John 15:1-2-3]

“Helping those ‘New’ in Christ Jesus – 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?

*** (Psalms 51:17) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
