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 ‘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”!

*** (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]

*** (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.
