“Seduced by the Dark Side – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Jn 2:15-16-17) Stop loving the world and the things that are in the world. If anyone persists in loving the world, the Father's love is NOT in him.
(1Jn 2:16) For everything that is in the world-the desire for fleshly gratification, the desire for possessions, and worldly arrogance-is not from the Father but is from the world.
(1Jn 2:17) And the world and its desires are fading away, but the person who does God's will remains forever.
*** (Ecclesiastes 1:2) Vanity of vanities, says the preacher; vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
*** (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.
*** (Job 28:28) And to man He said, Behold, the Fear of the Lord; that is Wisdom! And to depart from evil is Understanding!
There are Not many Videos that I like to watch. Most of those produced by Hollywood are debauched and loaded with sexuality and perversion. Every once in a while, I find one that I would like to speak about. Sorry, it is Not… “Jayne Eyre” or: the Bible story of “Joseph ”, son of Jacob. These are both fine videos and well worth watching. But there is another one I like, “The Devil Wears Prada!” I simply shows how easily the public is taken in by the… “Dark Side!” How, You may ask? By a very simple question… “Who do You: Want to Impress [Serve]”…? During this video, ‘Andy’ [Anne Hatahway] eventually learned that simple lesson, while serving an “Impossible Boss!” How many of us are Slaves: to our “Financial Debt”…? Or perhaps, even in that “Relationship”: that violates the Holy Word of God…? Who do ‘You’ Serve… “Daily”…?
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to You -> when “ALL” men shall speak well of You! For so their fathers did to the False Prophets.
*** (1Corinthains 6:18-19-20) Keep on running away from “SEXUAL IMMORALITY”! Any other sin that a person commits is outside his body, but the person who Sins Sexually: Sins against his own body.
(1Cor 6:19) You know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit: Who is in you [Romans 8:9], Whom you have received from God [Ephesians 4:30], don't you? You do “NOT” belong to yourselves, [Luke 6:46 & James 1:22]
(1Cor 6:20) because, you were bought for a price. Therefore, glorify God with your bodies.
“In a ‘Relationship’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (Romans 6:16) Don't you know; that when you offer yourselves to someone; as obedient slaves; you are slaves of the one you ‘Obey’ –> either of Sin; which leads to Death; or of ‘Obedience’ –> which leads to Righteousness?
*** (James 1:13-to-16) When someone is Tempted; he should Not say, “I am being tempted by God,” –> because God cannot be tempted by evil; nor does He tempt anyone.
(Jas 1:14) Instead, each person is tempted by his own desire [lust]; being Lured and Trapped by it.
(Jas 1:15) When that desire [lust] becomes pregnant; it gives birth to Sin; and when that sin grows up [matures]; it gives birth to Death.
(Jas 1:16) Do ‘not’ be deceived; my dear brothers.
“Whose your ‘Daddy’ – 101?”…Blog.
Did You realize that TV, Videos and the LIKE… are simply, “Living Sermons!” They offer a “Fantasy Lifestyle” that will entertain your ‘Carnal Mind!’ They are constantly in “Direct Conflict” with those “Godly Principles”: found in the Holy Word of God! You simply “CHOOSE”… which ONE: “You will serve!” Those who are Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God: share a different agenda. Theirs is to simply “Please God”: reflected in their “Obedience” to His Holy Word. Many today, who call themselves “Christians [?]” have NOT made a study of His Holy Word! They simply ‘Grace Away’ anything that does Not fit their lifestyle agenda! They simply please themselves, rather than the ONE: Who they call their LORD [?].
*** (Malachi 1:6-to-14) A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am a father, where is My honor? And if I am a master, where is My fear? says the LORD Jehovah of Hosts to you, O priests who despise My name. And you say, In what way have we despised Your name?
(Mal 1:7) You offer defiled bread upon My altar; and you say, In what way have we defiled You? In your saying, The table of the LORD Jehovah, it is a thing to be despised.
(Mal 1:8) And if you offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And if you offer the lame and the sick, is it not evil? Bring it now to your governor. Will he accept you, or lift up your face, says the LORD Jehovah of Hosts?
(Mal 1:9) And now entreat the face of God, that He favor us. This has been by your hands, will He lift up your faces, says Jehovah of Hosts?
(Mal 1:10) Who is even among you who will shut the doors, and you not kindle fire on My altar in vain! I have no pleasure in you, says the LORD Jehovah of Hosts. I will not be pleased with an offering from you.
(Mal 1:11) For from the rising of the sun even to its going in, My name shall be great among the nations; and everywhere incense shall be offered to My name, and a pure food offering. For My name shall be great among the nations, says the LORD Jehovah of Hosts. [Isaiah 44:6]
(Mal 1:12) But you are profaning it when you say, The table of the LORD Jehovah, it is polluted; and its fruit, His food, is to be despised.
(Mal 1:13) You also said, Behold, what a weariness it is! And you have puffed at it, says the LORD Jehovah of Hosts. And you bring plunder, and the lame, and the sick, and you bring the food offering. Should I accept it from your hand, says the LORD Jehovah?
(Mal 1:14) But cursed be a deceiver; and there is in his flock a male, yet he vows it, but sacrifices to the LORD Jehovah a blemished one. For I am a great king, says Jehovah of Hosts, and My name is feared among the nations.
*** (1Corinthains 11:23-to-28) For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread;
(1Cor 11:24) And giving thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body, which is broken for you; this do in remembrance of Me."
(1Cor 11:25) In the same way He took the cup also, after supping, saying, "This cup is the New Covenant in My blood; as often as you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me."
(1Cor 11:26) For "as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you show" the Lord's death until He shall come.
(1Cor 11:27) So that whoever shall eat this bread and drink this cup of the Lord “UNWORTHILY”, he will be ‘Guilty’ of the body and blood of the Lord.
(1Cor 11:28) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup.
(1Cor 11:29) For he who eats and drinks unworthily eats and drinks condemnation to himself, Not discerning the Lord's body.
(1Cor 11:30) For this cause MANY among you are WEAK and SICKLY, and many are DYING.
(1Cor 11:31) For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
(1Cor 11:32) But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we should Not be condemned with the world.
*** (Proverbs 17:15) He that justifies the wicked; and he that condemns the just; even they Both are Abomination to the LORD.
*** (Job 9:20) If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me; though I am perfect; He [God] shall declare me perverse.
*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore bring forth fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.
“LICENSE: Confession Without REPENTANCE – 101” …Blog.
*** (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?
About now, someone is saying… “What does this have to do with ME”…? Do You meet with Christ Jesus, in His Holy Word… “Daily”…? Do You… “LOVE: His Holy Word”… more than life itself…? Does His Indwelling Holy Spirit… move You to share His Holy Word: “With Others”…? Do You take every opportunity to Defend His Truth… found in His Holy Word…? How then do You tell others that… “You Love Jesus”…? Please share… “HOW”…?
*** (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]
*** (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.
*** (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.
*** (Proverbs 16:18) Pride goes before destruction; and a haughty spirit before a fall.
*** (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.
*** (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.
*** (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.
