“How do I grow in Christ – 201” …Blog. [2/?]
*** (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.
*** (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?]
*** (Hebrews 1:1-2) God, Who at many times and in many ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,
(Heb 1:2) has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, Whom He has appointed heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds, [Colossians 1:12-to-19]
*** (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.
Much of the Confusion about “True Christianity”… is simply caused FROM: those who CLAIM to be HIS… by “NOT Knowing” or “NOT Wanting” to KNOW: what the Holy Word of God, “Teaches!” IF there is a “True Christianity”… “Luke 18:8”… then there is ALSO: “A False ONE!” Perhaps an example? Have You ever seen a… “$3–Three dollar bill”…? Of course NOT! No one would ‘Counterfeit’ a money denomination, that does “NOT Exist!” But there are “MANY: Pseudo Christian [?] Denominations!” MOST do NOT hold to the “Complete Authority” of the Holy Word of God. But instead they SUBSTITUTE: their “False Teachings” and thus “Control your Thinking: about God!” The Catholic denomination is much like that. The Holy Word of God, simply teaches there is… “One Mediator, between man & God: the Lord Christ Jesus!” And yet Catholics are “DUPPED” into praying to Mary. They still call her… “The Virgin Mary”… even though Christ Jesus HAD: “Four Brothers & Two Sisters”… as the Scriptures say! There are very many other denominations who teach additional Heresies’. All in ALL: You must make the ‘Volitional Choice’ [Act of Free Will] to accept ONLY: the Scriptures! In doing so, You simply comply with what God has said in His Holy Word… Insulating Yourself… from those “LIES”… gendered by Religion!
*** (1Timothy 2:5) For God is “ONE”, and there is “One Mediator” of God and of men, the Man Christ Jesus,
*** (Luke 11:27-28) And it happened as He [Jesus] spoke these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice and said to Him; = Blessed is the “WOMB” -> that bore You; and the “BREASTS” -> which You have sucked.
(Luke 11:28) But He [Jesus] said, -> NO; -> rather; blessed are they who Hear -> the Word of God = And -> Keep It. [Luke 6:46]
*** (Mark 6:3) Is Not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? And are Not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
*** (Matthew 1:25) He [Joseph] did NOT have “Marital Relations” with her [Mary] until she had given birth to a son; and he named him Jesus.
*** (Hebrews 1:5-to-8) For to ‘which’ of the angels [None!] = did He [God] = say at ‘any’ time, = “You are My Son, = this day I [God] = have ‘begotten’ You [Jesus]?” = And again, = “I will be to Him [Jesus] a Father [God], = and = He [Jesus] = shall be to Me [God] = a Son?"
(Heb 1:6) And again, = when He [God] = brings in the First-born [Jesus] = into the world, = He [God] says, = “And let ‘all’ the angels of God = “WORSHIP” = Him [Jesus].”
(Heb 1:7) And of ‘the angels’ = He [God] says, = “Who makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire.”
(Heb 1:8) But to the Son [Jesus] = He [God] says, = “Your throne, = O God [Jesus], = is forever and ever. = A scepter of ‘righteousness’ = is the scepter of = Your [Jesus] kingdom.
“The ‘Only Begotten’ Son of God – 101” …Blog.
*** (Hebrews 5:8) though being a Son, yet He [Jesus] learned “Obedience” [Luke 22:42] by the things which He Suffered. [1Corinthians 5:7 “Christ our Passover”]
IF You will simply make the “CHOICE”… to hold ONLY: to the Holy Word of GOD: then You will eliminate the influence of: “ALL False Teaching”…! Often, people will expect You to believe, “What They Believe”! And to ‘Validate’ what they have been led to believe. Did You know THAT: Christ Jesus told us in the Scriptures, this very thing? Where…? Simply open your Bible and read out loud… “Matthew 7:21-22-23”… what does IT Say? Did Christ Jesus say… “Few, Some or MANY”…? Of course He said “MANY!” Can You think of another word for “MANY?” What about the word: “MOST?” Have You been to a funeral lately? Or visited a Graveyard and READ: the inscriptions on some of the tomb stones…? “MANY” [Most] proclaim the goodness of the deceased persons there: and yet “Very ‘FEW’ Say”…
*** (Revelation 14:13) And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write… “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord” from henceforth: Yea, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them. [Hebrews 8:27 & Revelation 20:15]
*** (Job 9:20) If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me; though I [say I] am perfect; He [God] shall declare me perverse.
*** (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.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might Not sin against You [Lord]. [John 12:48]
“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]
MY Bible contains… 1198 Chapters & 31,103 Verses! And ‘You’ say the Gospel is the “ONE… Only that ‘You’ say”…? How can that be…? When I read my Bible, I can find the “GOD’S TRUTH” in each chapter of the Bible. How then can ‘You’ say… the Gospel is “ONLY” in those verses… “You Quote”…? What You really mean is the “ONES” that your Church or Denomination: “Teaches”...! Why will You NOT Acknowledge: what Christ Jesus said… “John 1:48”…? Could it be that HE is NOT your… “Lord & Savior”…? You have REPLACED: His Holy Word, with the “Teaching”… You receive from the pulpit of your Church…! Say it isn’t SO…?

These are a FEW of the Topics… that have already covered in my past blog series. You may email me for the complete list or download them from “On Line!” Some have asked me to “Revisit” some of these Topics: specifically to “Discus ‘HOW’ Salvation” comes about? Specifically “HOW” does ONE become a Child of God? SOME are confused by the MANY aspects of “American Christianity!” Sorry to say, “American Christianity is NOT: “True Biblical Christianity!” IF it “Only Works” in ‘Prosperous’ America and does “NOT” work in ‘Poverty’ Third World Countries… THEN: It is NOT: “Valid Biblical Christianity!” Actually I do NOT like using the “Term: Christian” because of its Many Pseudo Dominations!
… American’s “Buy & Use”… Over FOUR $ Trillion dollars in Illegal Drugs Including MARIJUANA! American Mothers have MURDERED Over 55,000,000 Million “INNOCENT” Babies by Abortion. That is OVER: Four Thousand, “Each & Every DAY…! American is the World's Largest EXPORTER of PORN & Abortion Technology! Americans Produce & Export PORNOGRAPHY to the Entire World…! How THEN... “Can God bless America…?
“A ‘Woop-en’ in the Wood Shed for America – 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?
Did You know that “POLITICS”… has taken over ‘American Christianity?’ “MANY” who call themselves Christians: have voted for “Presidential Candidates”… who are “ANTI-CHRIST” within their ‘Political Agendas!’ I simply prefer the term… “NT Born Again”… as it accurately references: the Holy Word of God! “Born Again” is being Simply: “Being Born From” ABOVE: by the Holy Spirit of God! Of course HE is above All and from Whom… “All Consist & Remain”… till the end of the Age! And YES, there will BE: of course a… “New Heaven & a New Earth”… “Wherein Dwells”… “Complete Holiness & Complete Righteousness”… WITHOUT: “Any Corruption & Evil”…!
