“Christ In You, the Hope of Glory – 101” …Blog.
*** (Colossians 1:25-26-27) I [Paul] became its servant according to God's commission that was given to me for you, so that I might fulfill the ministry of the Word of God.
(Col 1:26) This Secret was hidden throughout the ages and generations but has now been Revealed to his saints, [2Corinthains 5:19-20-21]
(Col 1:27) to whom God wanted to make known the glorious riches of this secret among the gentiles-which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
*** (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.
*** (Jude 1:17-18-19) But you, beloved, remember the words spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(Jude 1:18) because they told you that at the last time there will be mockers according to their lusts, leading ungodly lives.
(Jude 1:19) These are those setting themselves apart, animal-like ones, “NOT” having the [Holy] Spirit.
While on my way home from Wal-Mart… “Colossians 1:27”… came to my mind. Do You ever meditate on His Holy Word, while doing something else? The ONLY True God of the Bible: is a God of “Order & Exactness!” This morning in my “Quiet Time”… I was reading through “Ezekiel 40-41-42!” He was led by an angel, in the Spirit: and shown the dimensions for the Temple. Also I was thinking back of the instructions that Moses gave to Israel, concerning the Temple. GOD gave His people Israel… “Explicit Instructions”… for everything pertaining to the “True Worship of God!” [Leviticus 10:1-2] Throughout His Holy Word, there is a repeating theme… “But by Every Word of God” [Deut. 8:1-2-3 & Matthew 4:4 & Luke 4:4]. God’s Truth is a “Mirrored Reflection” of the “OT & NT!” The OT Passover celebration was IN: the “Christ our Passover” [1Cor 5:7], the “Lamb of God” [John 1:29]! These “Truths” may be seen as a tapestry interwoven throughout the Bible! One cannot understand the NT without the OT: and “Vice-Versa!” Remember what Christ Jesus said in…
*** (Luke 24:44) And He [Jesus] said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that ALL things must be fulfilled which were Written -> in the Law of Moses and -> in the Prophets and -> in the Psalms about Me [Jesus].
*** (Exodus 25:40) And see that you [Moses] make them after their “Pattern”, which was shown you in the mountain.
*** (1Chronicles 28:10-to-13) Take heed now, for the LORD Jehovah has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary. Be strong and do it.
(1Ch 28:11) And David gave to his son Solomon the pattern of the porch, and of its houses, and of its treasuries, and of its upper rooms, and of its innermost rooms, and of the place of the mercy-seat,
(1Ch 28:12) and the “Pattern” of all that he had by the [Holy] Spirit, of the courts of the house of the LORD Jehovah, and of all the rooms all around the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the holy things;
(1Ch 28:13) And for the divisions of the priests and the Levites, and for all the work of the service of the house of the LORD Jehovah, and for all the vessels of service in the house of the LORD Jehovah;
*** (Hebrews 8:4-5) For if indeed He [Christ] were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer gifts according to the Law,
(Heb 8:5) who serve the “Example and Shadow” of heavenly things, as Moses was warned of God when he was about to make the tabernacle. For, He [God] says "See that you make all things according to the “Pattern” shown to you in the mountain."
*** (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.
“Bible Study: Academic or ‘Worship?’ – 101” …Blog
Why is there so much confusion about “Salvation in Christ Jesus”…? Christian [?] People, seldom… “Read & Study & Obey”… their Bibles. Pseudo Christian ‘music & entertainment’ has taken the PLACE: of the Truth of His Holy Word! Many of whom are simply, “Current Event Addicts!” They are “News Hounds”… without the “Logic & Understanding” of its “Deceptions!” Politics and its “Devotees” will always reference the “Founding Fathers Writings & The Constitution!” And “YET CANNOT”… explain the process of ‘Law Making’ at the “Federal & State” levels! Earthquakes, Military Wars, Tsunamis and the LIKE: are foremost on their “Worry List!” Since when did the USA… become the Big Brother, Red Cross & Savior of the REST of the World…? Absolutely “NEVER”…! So what do those Events… have to do with the… “Great Commission: Luke 24:44-to-48”…? Absolutely… “NOTHING”…!
*** (Isaiah 24:1-2-3) Behold, the LORD Jehovah empties the land and makes it bare, and distorts its face, and scatters its inhabitants.
(Isa 24:2) And as it is with the people, so it shall be with the priest; as with the servant, so with the master; as with the handmaid, so it is with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so with the debtor.
(Isa 24:3) The land shall be completely emptied, and utterly stripped; for the LORD Jehovah has spoken this Word.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah; that I will send a “Famine” in the land; ‘Not’ a “Famine” of bread; ‘Nor’ a thirst for water; But of = “Hearing” [and Doing] = the Words of the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
*** (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.
*** (2Corinthians 11:4) For if someone comes along and preaches Another Jesus than the one we preached, or should you receive a Different Spirit from the one you received or a Different Gospel from the one you accepted; you are All Too willing to Listen.

“Christ in You: the Hope of Glory”… is your ‘Only Concern!’ IF You are Truly Born Again, and Indwelt by His Holy Spirit… can’t He lead You [Romans 8:14] and give You… “His Concerns” about His “KINGDOM” Work…? Why then are You so concerned about the “MANUTIA” of this world? As IF somehow, your concern could really help any situation, “Anywhere”…? When You allow His Holy Word… to become an active part of your mind & mediations… You will NOT be concerned about: what in on the News! Nor of the Earthquakes! Nor of the Military Conflicts “SOMEWHERE”…! Satan uses all of these to “Confuse & Conflict” the Real Child of God… about their “True Priorities” Can You tell me, as a Christian [?], what are those… “True Priorities”…? Please answer before reading anymore? Could they be as simple as… “Matthew 6:33-34”…? Does this Command… mention anything about the “News”…? Or the “Weather”…? Or a “Comet”, or “Meteorite”, or “Cosmic” happening “Anywhere”…? Absolutely “NOT”…!
*** (Matthew 6:33) But seek FIRST: the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.
(Matt 6:34) Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow; for tomorrow shall be anxious for its own things. Sufficient to the day is the evil of it.
*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are from God and that the whole world lies under the control of the evil one. [Satan]
*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) And He [Jesus] said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me.
(Luke 24:45) and He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He said to them, So it is written, and so it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that “REPENTANCE” and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are Witnesses of these things.
*** (Mark 1:17) And Jesus said to them, Come after Me and I will make you ‘Fishers’ of men.

“Christ in You: the Hope of Glory”… is your ‘Only Concern!’ IF: You are Truly Born Again, just HOW: did You receive the Holy Spirit…? Can You take your Bible and show, “Chapters & Verses”… about HOW GOD Accomplished that in those who are Truly His…? Do You really believe, THAT: the God WHO Redeemed You… would want You to remain “Ignorant” about this process…? How then can You, share with the LOST… what it “Really Means’ to Believe in Jesus…? Just HOW… does His Holy Indwelling Spirit… lead You into the Truth: found in His Holy Word…? Do You ever think about these things…? Or did You believe that You were just to” “Wait for Heaven?” And that was ALL there was…? Seriously…? Many are sitting on the ‘Premises’… doing “Just That!”
Why do People… CLAIM to Know Christ Jesus as their Savior & Lord…? And then are Completely Ignorant about HOW Salvation comes About…?
“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” Did ‘You’ purposely miss.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!

*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart." Ephesians 1:13-14]
(John 7:39) Now He said this about the [Holy] Spirit, Whom those who were believing in Him were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was not yet present, Because Jesus had not yet been glorified.

*** (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?
