*** (John 10:27) My sheep hear My voice, and I [Jesus] know them, and they follow Me.
*** (John 10:16) And I [Jesus] have “Other Sheep” –> who are ‘not’ of this fold. I must also lead those; and they shall hear My voice: –> and there shall be one flock: one Shepherd.

“Daily: Spiritual ‘Decisions’ – 101”…Blog.
Do You know the “True Shepherd”…? Did You also know: that there are “False Ones”…? But of course people ‘seldom’ speak about the “False Ones’: and I cannot figure out “Why NOT”…? Every day, “Pseudo Christian [?]” people share on Face Book: their “Favorite ‘FALSE’ Preachers!” Such as “Joyce Meyers, & Joel Osteen, & Kenneth Hagen, & Joseph Prince and a PLETHORA: of other “False Teachers!” Could it be; that these “Supposed Sheep” are “Really GOATS”…? Could it be that THEY: do NOT want to “Hear HIS Voice” [The Scriptures] of the “TRUE SHEPHERD”…? Many claim that they “KNOW HIM” and Yet: “KNOW NOTIHING” of His Holy Word! One sure Test is IF: You have a ‘Supposed’ picture of Jesus! [Deuteronomy 4:15-16] Of course, there are many “Others!” Do You take your Bible and TEST: what your preacher or church “Teaches?” Or even what I put in these blogs…? May I simply ask… “If NOT: Why NOT”…?
*** (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].
“The Christian ‘Self-TEST’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (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.
*** (Matthew 25:32-33-34) And all nations shall be gathered before Him [Jesus]. And He shall separate them from one another, as a shepherd divides the sheep from the goats.
(Matt 25:33) And indeed He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats off the left.
(Matt 25:34) Then the King shall say to those on His right hand, Come, blessed of My Father [God], inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
*** (1Jn 1:3) that which we have seen and heard we declare unto you, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And truly our fellowship is with the Father [God] and with His Son Jesus Christ.
*** (Philippians 3:10) that I may know Him: and the power of His resurrection” and the fellowship of His sufferings: being made conformable to His death;
*** (John 1:1-to-5) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(John 1:2) He [Jesus] was in the beginning with God. [Genesis 1:26]
(John 1:3) All things came into being through Him, and without Him NOT even one thing came into being that has come into being. [Colossians 1:12-to-19]
(John 1:4) In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. [John 14:6]
(John 1:5) And the light shines in the darkness, (2Corinthains 4:3-4) and the darkness did Not overtake it.
*** (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?
ARE those of You: WHO… are Truly Born Again, by His Holy Spirit: constantly seeking “FELLOSWHIP” with HIM, in “His Holy Word”…? People tell me all the Time: “I know: what I know: and what I know!” When I question them with something simple: “Will You please provide “Bible Chapter & Verse” for that: they play ‘Indignant’ that anyone would ask them! Can You cannot take your “Bible and Defend”: WHAT You Believe…” Please allow me to ASK: “What will You tell CHRIST JESUS”… when You stand before HIM…? “I know: what I know: and what I know!” Of course You heard the story of a person who was told about the “Will of GOD”…? He was told, ANYTIME: You want to know the “Will of GOD”: then simply place your Bible on its end binding and allow it to fall open. And then, without looking: place your finger on a “Bible Verse!” He complied and…
*** (Matthew 27:5) And he [Judas] threw the pieces of silver down in the temple and departed. And he went and hanged himself.
Right away, he said… “That Cannot be Right” and tried it again! He opened his Bible and put his finger on another Bible verses!
*** (Ecclesiastes 9:10) Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no work, nor plan, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave where you go.
Further frustrated he simply said… I will give it one more ‘Try!’ He opened his Bible and put his finger on another Bible verse!
*** (John 13:27) And after the morsel, then Satan entered into him [Judas]. Then Jesus said to him, What you do, do quickly.
Such ‘Methodologies’ for study of the… “Holy Word of God”… will lead to such “False Conclusions!” God cannot Lie [Numbers 23:19] and His Holy Word is TRUTH [John 17:17]…! “The Will of GOD = Always Equals = His Holy Word!” “Nothing More: Nothing Less”…! Those, Truly Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God: are taught His Truth: by “His Indwelling HOLY SPIRIT” [Romans 8:9 &Ephesians 4:30]…! Oh yes, “His Gospel Truth” can be found in His Holy Word. Salvation is “ONLY” for those who come to Christ Jesus ONLY: on His terms [John 7:38-39]…! But there is “DAMNATION” for those who REJECT: the Love, Mercy & Grace of God [Revelation 20:15]…! MANY think it is “John 3:16” and are “WRONG!” Can You REFUTE that Statement: with your Bible…? If You cannot, then perhaps You do NOT have “Biblical Salvation!” Remember “Knowing About” the Bible does NOT bring Salvation! “ONLY”, knowing the “AUTHOR: Christ Jesus, the Living Word, the Passover Lamb of God”… “DOES!” Remember “Christ Jesus call His: True Believers”… “Soldiers”…!
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘NOT’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.

*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) Therefore endure hardness, as a good Soldier of Jesus Christ.
(2Tim 2:4) No one who wars tangles with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him who chose him to be a Soldier.
(2Tim 2:5) And also if anyone competes, he is Not crowned unless he competes Lawfully.
*** (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.
*** (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?
*** (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.

*** (Luke 11:23) He who is Not with Me [Jesus] is against Me [Jesus], and he who does Not gather with Me: scatters.
In a recent ‘Nielson Poll’… Americans Devote: “Over 44+ Hours per week”… TO their “Televisions & Videos!” This is EVIDENT: because of the “Decline” in the ‘Spiritual Condition’ of America: Many of the “Christians [?]”… DO NOT: “Read & Study & Obey” their Bibles! May I simply ask You…? “Do You”…? Do You, meet with Christ Jesus in His Holy Word: “Daily”…? WHAT then, are You feeding your “Heart, Mind & Soul”… WITH? How do You say, “I belong to Jesus”… and then Do NOT Know: “His Holy Word”…? Did You think that, a relationship with HIM, is something ‘Magic?’ Any ‘Human Relationship’ takes an “Emotional, Physical, Social & Cognitive” effort to ‘grow & develop!’ Our “Spiritual Relation” with God the Father, by the Finished Work of Redemption” takes a human effort on our part, based on our Obedience to Him! Did the Disciples of Christ, just sit around and do ‘Nothing?’ Of course “Not!”
*** (Mark 12:29-30) And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord;
(Mark 12:30) and you shall LOVE [Agape] the Lord your God with all your HEART, and with all your SOUL, and with all your MIND, and with all your STRENGTH." This is the first commandment.
*** (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.
*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.
