“True Faith or False Faith – 301” …Blog.
*** (Hebrews 12:1-to-4) Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us LAY ASIDE: ‘Every Weight’ and the ‘Sin’ which so easily besets us, and let us Run with Patience: the Race that is set before us,
(Heb 12:2) looking to [Christ] Jesus the “Author and Finisher” of our Faith, Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God.
(Heb 12:3) For consider Him [Jesus], Who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in your minds. [Luke 18:1]
(Heb 12:4) You have Not yet resisted unto blood [death], striving against sin.
*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Ephesians 1:13-14] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the Excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.
*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us; through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
*** (Romans 8:9) But you are Not in the flesh, but in the Spirit; if the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone has ‘NOT’ the Spirit of Christ; he is ‘NONE’ of His.
“True Faith” is Always, based on His Holy Word…! “True Faith” comes to us from God, without ANY Human effort…! “True Faith” comes from the: “Love & Mercy & Grace” of God ALONE! “It is the Gift of God: lest Any [human] should boast” [Ephesians 2:8-9-10]…! “True Faith” is simply a “Fruit of the Holy Spirit”, so that “GOD Alone” may have the… “Complete Credit” for our: “True Faith”…! HE is the Potter and we are the “CLAY!” Remember there are “ONLY” Two World Religions. One is based on “Human Effort” and doing good deeds. All Pagan World Religions, have good works, to “Earn” their salvation: “Which is Impossible!” The Other TRUE RELIGION: is the ONE where GOD does it “ALL”, and in our Obedience to Him: we receive His Holy Spirit as a sing of God’s Approval of our… “True Faith!” [Acts 15:8-9]
*** (Luke 18:18-19) Then an official asked Jesus, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
(Luke 18:19) Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? Nobody is good except for “One” –> “God”. [Genesis 18:25]
“None good but ‘One’ [God] -101” …Blog.
*** (Proverbs 30:6) Do Not add to His Words, lest He reprove you and you be found a LIAR.
*** (Romans 3:21-to-25) But Now a righteousness of God has been revealed “Apart from Law”, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets;
(Rom 3:22) even the Righteousness of God through the Faith of Jesus Christ, toward all and upon all those who believe. For there is no difference, [John 7:38-39]
(Rom 3:23) for “ALL” have Sinned and come short of the Glory of God,
(Rom 3:24) being “Justified Freely” by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; [1Corinthians 5:7]
(Rom 3:25) Whom God has set forth to be a “Propitiation” through Faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness through the passing by of the Sins that had taken place Before, in the forbearance of God;
*** (Hebrews 10:18) Now where Remission of these is, = THERE IS = NO MORE = “OFFERING FOR SIN”. [Numbers 28:9-10]
“It is ‘Finished!’ – 101”…Blog. [1/2]
“True Faith” takes into account… “All Scripture”…! The Bible is NOT: just 66 books, but a “ONE CONTIGUIOUS BOOK” about mind of God! Revealing His workings with “Mankind!” [Exodus 20:19-20] Many are confused, about keeping the Commandments of Christ Jesus, thinking that they earn “kudos” and add to their salvation. They simply “CHOOSE NOT TO”… ‘Read & Understand’… the three pivotal books of the ‘New Testament’. Their “Truths” can also be found in the OT! What are these ‘Three Books”…? Can You name them…? Simply PUT: “Romans & Hebrews & Galatians”…! Theses NT books reveal the “Reconciliation of Mankind” to GOD: by the Finished Work of Redemption: by Christ Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God! And “Without ANY Human Effort”…! Oh yes, One does NOT: become ‘Instantly’ filled with understanding! No more so than does a Newborn: eat ‘Steak!’ Milk is needed for that baby to ‘Grow & Mature.’ But after four or more years, does “ONE” with “True Faith” still feed themselves on ‘Milk’…? Absolutely “NOT”…!
*** (2Peter 3:18) But grow in Grace and in Knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
(1Peter 2:1-to-5) Therefore laying aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisies and envyings, and ALL evil speakings,
(1Pe 2:2) desire the sincere milk of the Word, as newborn babes, so that you may GROW by it;
(1Pe 2:3) IF Truly, you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
(1Pe 2:4) For having been drawn to Him, a living Stone, indeed rejected by men, but elect, precious with God;
(1Pe 2:5) you also as living stones are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. [Hebrews 12:28-29]
*** (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. [Ezekiel 44:23]
*** (Luke 13:6-to-9) Then Jesus told them this parable: "A man had a fig tree that had been planted in his vineyard. He went to look for fruit on it but didn't find any.
(Luke 13:7) So he said to the gardener, 'Look here! For three years I have been coming to look for fruit on this tree but haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it waste the soil?'
(Luke 13:8) But the gardener replied, 'Sir, leave it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and fertilize it.
(Luke 13:9) Maybe next year it'll bear fruit. If Not, then cut it down.'"

*** (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]
“God is Holy & Infinite”…! Humans are “Sinful & Finite”…! God provides His Salvation: by “His Mercy, Love & Grace: Alone”…! Mankind thinks they he must… “Earn It”…! Without the “Scriptures” and Bible TRUTH: mankind adopts “Religion.” Religions, all kinds, make man somehow believe: the “Lie of Satan!” Remember his methodology has NOT changed since his temptation of ‘Eve in the Garden’, “Genesis 3:1-to-5”. He even used it, when tempting Christ Jesus in “Matthew 4 & Luke 4.” … “Has GOD [Really] Said, You Shall NOT”…? … “IF You [Jesus] be the Son of God”…? … “IF You [Jesus] worship Me [Satan] ALL will be yours!”…! Satan the “Father of LIES” does NOT want anyone to know the Scriptures! He does want Everyone… “To Adopt ANY RELIGION”… of their own choice! Mankind has ONLY Two Options: “True Faith” OR “False Faith”…!
“It is Written – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 13:19) When ‘ANYONE’ hears the Word of the kingdom; and does ‘Not’ understand it; then the wicked one [Satan] comes; and “Catches Away” that which was sown in his [her] heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.
*** (Luke 4:6-7-8) And the Devil said to Him [Jesus], All this power I will give you, and the glory of them; for it has been delivered to me. And I give it to whomever I will. [1Jn 5:19]
(Luke 4:7) Therefore if You [Jesus] will worship me [Satan], ALL shall be yours.
(Luke 4:8) And Jesus answered and said to him, Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve."
*** (Leviticus 10:1-2) And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered ‘strange fire’ before the LORD, which He commanded them “NOT”.
(Lev 10:2) And there went out “Fire” from the LORD, and ‘Devoured’ them, and they “Died”, before the LORD.
*** (2Corinthians 5:17-to-21) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have disappeared, and-look!-all things have become new!
(2Cor 5:18) All of this comes from God, Who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
(2Cor 5:19) For in Christ God was reconciling the world to Himself by “NOT” counting their sins against them, and He has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
(2Cor 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives, as though God were pleading through us. We plead on Christ's behalf: "Be reconciled to God!"
(2Cor 5:21) God made the One [Christ Jesus], Who did NOT know sin: to be Sin [offering] for us, so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Christ Jesus].
“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.
How may ONE tell: IF they have the “True Faith”…? Simply PUT: is it ONLY: “God’s Holy Spirit”, working in You, doing the “Will of GOD”… in your Life…! OR: is it You, keeping some of His Commandments, the best You know how…? IS there can be “Anything” in your LIFE: that can be attributed to “YOU Alone”… and “NOT to God ALONE”…? Is there ‘Any Good’ in you “Alone”…? IF You answered YES: then You do NOT have… “True Faith”…! It is “ONLY” by “His Holy Spirit”… that HE, “Christ Jesus”… Lives Out HIS LIFE in You! Any Good is “NOT Yours”, but His simply… ‘Flowing through You”…! Why else are we CALLED… “The Body of Christ”…? “His Bride”…! [Hebrews 12:23]
*** (Isaiah 6:8) And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us [Genesis 1:26]? Then I said: –> Here am I: –> send me!
“Reasonable Service – 101” …Blog.
*** (Romans 12:1-to-4) I therefore urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercies, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices that are holy and pleasing to God, for this is the Reasonable way for you to Worship. [2Corinthians 4:7]
(Rom 12:2) “Do Not” be conformed to this world; but continually be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God's will is -> what is Proper, Pleasing, and Perfect. [2Corinthains 10:3-to-6]
(Rom 12:3) For by the grace given to me I ask every one of you ‘Not’ to think of yourself more highly than you should think; rather to think of yourself with sober judgment on the measure of faith that God has assigned each of you. [Ephesians 2:10]
(Rom 12:4) For we have many parts in one body; but these parts do ‘Not’ all have the same function [office].
