“Did You ‘HEAR’ God, Today? – 101” …Blog.
*** (Jeremiah 33:3) Call to Me [God], and I will answer you, and show you great and inscrutable things which you do not know.
*** (Isaiah 55:8-to-11) For My thoughts are Not your thoughts, Neither are your ways My ways, says the LORD.
(Isa 55:9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isa 55:10) For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and does not return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring out and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
(Isa 55:11) so shall My WORD be, which goes out of My mouth; it shall NOT return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall certainly do what I sent it to do.
*** (Luke 18:1-to-8) And He [Jesus] also spoke a parable to them to teach it is always right to Pray, and Not to faint,
(Luke 18:2) saying, A certain judge was in a certain city, Not fearing God, nor respecting man.
(Luke 18:3) And a widow was in that city. And she came to Him, saying, Avenge me of my adversary.
(Luke 18:4) And he would Not do so for a time. But afterward he said within himself, Though I do Not fear God, Nor regard man,
(Luke 18:5) Yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, that she Not wear me down in the end.
(Luke 18:6) And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge says.
(Luke 18:7) And shall Not God avenge His own elect, who cry day and night to Him, though He has been long-suffering over them?
(Luke 18:8) I [Jesus] say to you that He will avenge them speedily. Yet when the Son of Man comes, shall He find [True] Faith on the earth?
*** (1Thesalonians 3:4) For truly, when we were with you, we told you before, that we were going to suffer Tribulation; as it also Happened, even you [Now] know. [Job 2:9-10]
Do You ONLY: “Pray”… when You want something from God? Or do You, “Pray”… to thank Him for this day and all You have so graciously received from Him? You expect God to be always ready ‘to hear’ your Prayers, yet His is continuously speaking to You: and You will Not hear Him! Unless You open His Holy Word… “DAILY”… You have closed your ears to Him! Say it isn’t so…? He is speaking in His Holy Word and yet: “MANY” who say they are Christians [?]… do NOT: “Read & Study & Obey”… the Bible! How would You feel if your MATE… only spoke and You never got to say a word in response…? Or shared a feeling or conflict or blessing…? Isn’t that what we… “Do to GOD”… when we REFUSE: to meet with Him: in His Holy Word… “Daily?”
*** (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]
*** (Isaiah 65:12) Therefore I [God] will number you to the sword; and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because I [God] called and you did NOT answer; when I [God] spoke; you did NOT hear and did evil before My eyes; and chose that in which I [God] did Not delight.
*** (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.
*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there Prayed. [Worshiped]
*** (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.

*** (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.
Does a “Real: Christian Soldier of Christ”… ever get to ‘Retire from Service’, while on “Earth”…? The ‘Real’ ones, retire ONLY: when they are “Called Home”… by their “Daddy: GOD!” Do You call God the Father… “Abba [Daddy]”…? If You DO: don’t You think that You should HEAR: what He has to say to You: “DAILY from His Holy Word”…? We are all in a ‘Daily Battle’ with: “The World, the Flesh and the Devil [Satan]!” He has WON… if he can keep You from the Holy Word of God! [1Jn 2:15-16-17] AGAIN: He has WON… if he can keep You from the Holy Word of God! The More of the WORD: You have within your… “Heart Mind & Soul”… the more ‘Faith’ You have! When You do NOT open your Bible and meet with “Christ Jesus” in His Holy Word… You allow Satan to “Contaminate & Pervert” your ‘Thought Processes’ with those things of the World, the Flesh & Satan! Why would You allow Satan to do that…?
*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are from God and that the whole world lies under the control of the evil one. [Satan]
*** (Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation [2Corinthians 10:3-to-6], and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,
*** (Acts 7:54-to-60) And hearing these things, they were cut to their hearts. And they gnashed on him with their teeth.
(Acts 7:55) But being full of the Holy Spirit, looking up intently into Heaven, he saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.
(Acts 7:56) And he said, Behold, I see Heaven opened and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.
(Acts 7:57) And crying out with a loud voice, they stopped their ears and ran on him with one accord.
(Acts 7:58) And throwing him outside the city, they stoned him. And the witnesses laid their clothes down at the feet of a young man named Saul.
(Acts 7:59) And they stoned Stephen, who was calling on God and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
(Acts 7:60) And kneeling down, he cried with a loud voice, Lord, do not lay this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. [died]
*** (Romans 10:17) Then Faith is of hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
*** (1Peter 2:1-to-5) Therefore laying aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisies and envying’s, and all evil speaking’s,
(1Pet 2:2) desire the sincere milk of the Word, as newborn babes, so that you may grow by it; [Hebrews 5:11-to-14]
(1Pet 2:3) IF: truly you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
(1Pet 2:4) For having been drawn to Him, a living Stone, indeed rejected by men, but elect, precious with God;
(1Pet 2:5) you also as living stones are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices [Romans 12:1-2-3] acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
“Whose your ‘Daddy’ – 101?”…Blog.
Someone once said to me… “Oh, but I am NOT a morning person!” I asked, “When You are on Vacation, do You sleep IN, or are You UP before dawn: to make the MOST of your Vacation”…? “Self-Discipline” seems to have ‘Vanished’ from our American culture. Do You know who, “Roger Banister” is? He was the first man to run a ‘Four Minute Mile!’ Within six months, someone else, did the same! The mental barrier was broken and today many ‘Olympic Athletes’ have done the same. You mean to tell me, “God is your Father & You are His Child”… and You cannot discipline yourself to meet with Him, IN: “His Holy Word: DAILY”…? What is wrong with that ‘Picture’…? During my various careers, I arose before dawn: and met with HIM, In His Holy Word! Even when working, “8-10-12+” hour days! Even when traveling ‘domestically & internationally’: I arose one hour before I was to leave: to meet with Him, in His Holy Word! We are all in a ‘Daily Battle’ with: “The World, the Flesh and the Devil [Satan]!” He has WON… if he can keep You from the Holy Word of God! [1Jn 2:15-16-17]
*** (Proverbs 6:6-to-9) Go to the Ant, sluggard; consider her ways and be wise;
(Pro 6:7) who, having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
(Pro 6:8) provides her food in the summer and gathers her food in the harvest.
(Pro 6:9) How long will you sleep, O sluggard? When will you arise out of your sleep?
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being “Doers” of the Word, and “NOT” merely hearers, who ‘Deceive’ themselves. [Luke 6:46]

*** (2Kings 18:4) He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. [Numbers 21:5-to-9]
*** (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. [Damnation]
*** (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.
*** (Matthew 16:26) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
“In Exchange for your SOUL – 101” …Blog. [1/5]
*** (Ezekiel 3:18-to-21) When I [God] say to the wicked, You shall surely die; and you do not give him warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked one shall die in his iniquity; but I will require his blood at your hand.
(Ezek 3:19) Yet if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
(Ezek 3:20) And when the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and when I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.
(Ezek 3:21) But if you warn the righteous so that the righteous does not sin, and if he does not sin, he shall surely live because he is warned; also you have delivered your soul.
