“God’s Plan for YOU – 101” …Blog.
*** (Ephesians 5:17) Therefore do Not be unwise, but Understand what the will of the Lord is.
*** (1Peter 3:15) but Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready Always to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason of the Hope in you, with meekness and fear;
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with ALL your getting get Understanding.
*** (James 1:5-to-8) Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, Who gives to everyone generously without a rebuke, And it will be given to him.
(Jas 1:6) But he must ask in faith, Without ANY Doubts, for the one who has doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
(Jas 1:7) Such a person should NOT expect to receive anything from the Lord.
(Jas 1:8) He is a Double-Minded man, Unstable in all he undertakes.
Have You ever been asked about the “Will of God”…? Do You know what the “Will of God” is for your life…? How does One, find the “Will of God”…? This question is really “Easy”…! The problem is that those Who say they are Christians [?]… “Do NOT” know their Bibles! There is one simple TEST: “The Will of God = Always Equals = His Holy Word”…! When I was Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God, many years ago, this question plagued me. With so very many choices in LIFE: how is one to ‘Know?’ Upon reading through the Bible, it struck me HOW Many times God had to Spank: OT Israel! After being given “Complete Instructions”, they simply Choose… “To Disobey God & His Holy Word!” The NT Born Again faces these “Same Quandaries!” The NT is Replete with such Commands… “Simply To Obey!” Of course You know… “John 8:29 & Luke 6:46 & James 1:22”… Don’t You?
*** (1Timothy 2:3-4-5) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
(1Tim 2:4) who will have ALL men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth.
(1Tim 2:5) For God is one, and there is one Mediator of God and of men, the Man Christ Jesus,
*** (2Peter 3:9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to Repentance.
*** (Acts 17:30-31) And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now [Strictly] Commands ALL men everywhere to REPENT:
(Acts 17:31) Because He hath appointed a day, in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man [Christ Jesus] Whom: He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto ALL men; in that He [God] has raised Him [Jesus] from the dead. [John 10:17-18]
*** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by Not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness]; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [in Christ alone]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].
“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.
Do You meet with Christ Jesus “DAILY”… in His Holy Word? If You do Not: just perhaps You should carefully examine your ‘profession’ for Him? Do You live out His Holy Word, in making your ‘moment by moment’ decisions? Perhaps a simple example? When watching TV or Videos, I must keep my options open. I have already made simple decisions on ‘Which’ programs I will “NOT Watch!” But then there are the ‘Commercials!’ I use the ‘Quick view’ option: to be READY to change the channel. Being single, those ‘Victoria Secret’ commercials are especially annoying. Because of FCC regulation, “SMOKING Commercials” will no longer be viewed! But You may still see SMOKING in other programs & movies. Isn’t that ‘DUPLICITY?’ It is all a MIND GAME: to get you to change your MIND… about Obeying GOD!
*** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) Of course, we are living in the flesh, but we do not fight in a fleshly way.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the flesh. Instead, they have the Power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
(2Cor 10:5) and every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God; taking every thought captive in order to obey Christ.
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready to punish every act of disobedience [1Jn 1:5-to-10 & Proverbs 28:13] when your obedience is complete.
*** (1Thessalonians 4:3-to-8) For it is God's will that you be sanctified: You must abstain from [All] sexual immorality;
(1Th 4:4) each of you must know how to Control his own body in Holiness and Honor,
(1Th 4:5) not with passion and lust like the gentiles who do not know God;
(1Th 4:6) and you must never take advantage of or exploit a brother in this regard. For the Lord is an avenger in all these things, just as we already told you and warned you.
(1Th 4:7) For God did not call us to impurity but to Holiness.
(1Th 4:8) Therefore, whoever rejects this instruction is not rejecting human authority: But God, Who gives you his Holy Spirit. [Romans 8:9]
*** (John 15:1-to-5) I [Jesus] am the True Vine, and My Father [God] is the Vinedresser.
(John 15:2) Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away. And every one that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bring forth more fruit.
(John 15:3) Now you are clean through the Word which I have spoken to you.
(John 15:4) Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
(John 15:5) I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit; for without Me [Jesus] you can do nothing.
*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the Fruit of the [Holy] Spirit consists of every form of Goodness, Righteousness, and “TRUTH”. [2Peter 1:1-to-10]

Are You a “Christian THEOLOGIAN”…? Just perhaps I should ‘Clarify’ that question. How long have You know Christ Jesus as your “Savior & Lord”…? Please answer to yourself and not to me. “___” years…? Can You take your Bible and DEFEND… “Each & Every”… one of your beliefs about “Him?” Can You do this with your Bible… “Chapters & Verses”…? Or is just what You believe about Him… “Simply Hearsay?” Could it be the hearsay from the Pulpit of your Church? Or from a supposed Christian… “Radio, TV or Internet”… program? Do You take your Bible and “Examine ALL Christian Teaching”…? Yes, even these Bible Blogs? 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!].
*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove ALL things: hold fast to the good.
*** (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]
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your best to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has Nothing to be ashamed of, handling the Word of Truth with Precision.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,
*** (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.
*** (2Timothy 2:3) Join me in suffering like a good soldier = of Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 2:4) No one serving in the military gets mixed up in civilian matters for his aim is to please his Commanding officer. [Christ Jesus]
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one who is an athlete wins a prize = unless he competes according to the Rules.

*** (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. [1Corinthains 16:22].
OK, so You have not done so in the past! When do You plan to “Start TO”…? Surely You converse about Politics and the NEWS reports. You believe them “Without Question”, when they are gendered with ‘Lies!’ Surely You know that as the ‘End of Days’ draws near; there will be… “LESS TRUTH”… as in the days of Noah. The further one gets away from the Truth of Scripture, the more ‘Error’ is available. Why do people get upset when You share a Bible Verse that speaks about “SIN/SINS”…? Simple answer, the Holy Spirit uses the Holy Word of God: to convict all, both “Sinners & Saints”…! That’s why the Word is called, “The Sword of the Spirit!” [Ephesians 6:17] Don’t You believe that “LIE” about turning someone away from Christ Jesus, by sharing His Holy Word! IF You ‘Love’ one another, God’s Truth is simply part of “His Tough Love!” Don’t You remember… “1Corinthians 5:1-to-13”…? That is simply God’s Truth, No matter how uncomfortable it is for… “Those Doing Wrong!”
*** (Jeremiah 1:8) Do Not be afraid of their Faces; for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD Jehovah.
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will Hear or whether they will forbear [Not hear], for they are [most] rebellious.

*** (Ephesians 5:11) and have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness. Instead: Expose them for what they are.
