“Do You desire to be made ‘Whole?’ – 101” …Blog.

“Do You desire to be made ‘Whole?’ – 101” …Blog.

What is IT… in your Past or Present: that keeps You from having a Peace (Isaiah 32:17) in Christ Jesus and Fellowship with Him… in His Holy Word…?

*** (John 5:1-to-8) After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
(John 5:2)  Now there is a pool at the Sheep Gate at Jerusalem, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches.
(John 5:3) In these lay a great multitude of those who were sick, of blind, lame, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
(John 5:4) For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and troubled the water. Then whoever first stepped in after the troubling of the water was made whole of whatever disease he had.
(John 5:5) And a certain man was there, who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. [38]
(John 5:6) When Jesus saw him lying, and knowing that he had spent much time, He [Jesus] said to him, Do you desire to be made whole?
(John 5:7) The infirm man answered Him, Sir, when the water is troubled, I have no one to put me into the pool. But while I am coming, another steps down before me.
(John 5:8) Jesus says to him, Rise, take up your bed and walk.

*** (1Corinthains 6:9-10-11) You know that wicked people will Not inherit the kingdom of God, don't you? Stop deceiving yourselves! Sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,
(1Cor 6:10) thieves, greedy people, drunks, slanderers, and robbers will NOT inherit the kingdom of God. (Revelation 20:15)
(1Cor 6:11) That is what Some of you were! But you were Washed, you were Sanctified, you were Justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. [Romans 8:9]

*** (1Timothy 1:19-20) with faith and a good [Clear] conscience. By ignoring their consciences, some people have Destroyed their Faith like a wrecked ship. [Proverbs 28:13 & Romans 6:1-2]
(1Tim 1:20) These include Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I handed over to Satan so that they may learn Not to blaspheme.

Occasionally, some of those who read these blogs… will share with me about some of the struggles in their lives. Some will even come right out and ask ‘Specific Questions’… wanting answers from His Holy Word. The Holy Spirit has been working on them and in humility: they are willing to ask for ‘help & wisdom’ which comes from the Scriptures. Each of us, before we came to Christ Jesus, were living in the darkness of SIN: blinded by… “Self & Satan!” Even some after coming to Christ Jesus for Salvation, have troubles understanding Him & His Holy Word. There is something, ‘Holding’ them back. In most instances, it is Pride with “Un-confessed/Un-Repented: SIN/SINS!” Surely Most of us know and speak… John 1:9… “IF we confess our sins…!” But that is ONLY as far as they are willing to go. They Completely MISS… “Proverbs 28:13 & Romans 6:1-2”…! Perhaps this is the reason that they… “Do Not Enjoy: Fellowship with Christ Jesus… In His Holy WORD”…! Perhaps that is WHY: they have “No Hunger” to… “Learn & Know & Obey”… the His Truths, found in His Holy Word? Perhaps to them, it is the ‘Bible’ and… NOT: “His Holy Word”…?

“Bible Study: Academic or ‘Worship?’ – 101” …Blog

*** (Hebrews 2:15) and deliver those who through fear of death were ALL their lifetime subject to bondage.

*** (2Corinthains 4:3-4) So IF our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are dying.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, the god of this world [Satan]; has blinded the minds of those who do not believe: to keep them from seeing the light of the glorious gospel of Christ; Who is the image of God.

*** (1Jn 2:15-16-17) Do Not LOVE the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is Not in him,
(1Jn 2:16) because ALL that is in the world, the Lust of the Flesh, and the Lust of the Eyes, and the Pride of Life, is NOT of the Father [God], but is of the world.
(1Jn 2:17) And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will [Word] of God abides forever. [John 7:38-39]

*** (1John 1:5-to-10) This is the Message that we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light, and in him there is No darkness-none at all!
(1Jn 1:6) IF we claim that we have fellowship with him BUT keep living in the darkness, we are Lying and the Truth is NOT in us.
(1Jn 1:7) But IF we keep living in the light as He [God] Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son [Keeps On] cleansing us from ALL sin.
(1Jn 1:8) IF we say that we do Not have any sin, we are Deceiving ourselves and the Truth is Not in us.
(1Jn 1:9) IF we make it our habit to Confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us those sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. [Proverbs 28:13 & Romans 6:1-2]
(1Jn 1:10) IF we say that we have never sinned, we make Him a liar and His Word is Not in us.

“The ‘Siblings’ of “Believing = Faith” – 101”…Blog.

“Forgive your Enemies”… “Mark 11:25-26…? Or else your Heavenly Father, will NOT forgive You! How many of us know those Bible verses? But just Suppose: they are Dead? Someone Abused You, or even your Parents in their “IGNORANCE”… did Not show You LOVE… you expected? Many Adults… “NOW” claim that ‘Mom or Dad’ or Both: Loved their Sibling [s], more than “THEM!” They are now Adults, and still carry those “Emotional Scars!” Christ Jesus is continuing to ASK: Do you desire to be made whole? Forgiveness is both on the horizontal and vertical levels. Between Man & God: and between “Each of Us!” When You are willing to Forgive: You simply break that “Emotional Bondage of UN-Forgiveness”… that You have placed upon yourself. NO, Life is… “Not Fair!” NO One of us can be Completely FAIR: in every circumstance. We do NOT know the Heart of another, so then: how can “You be Fair?” Surely You want GOD to Judge that Person: who has hurt You… “Emotionally & in Other Ways?” And when He Doesn’t… ‘You take it Personally!’ Please allow me to ASK: When did God DIE: And Make You… “BOSS”…? Absolutely… “Never!” Did You miss… “Job 2:9-10”…?

*** (John 15:22-23-24) If I [Jesus] had Not come and spoken to them, they would Not have had sin; but now they have No Excuse for their SIN.
(John 15:23) He who hates Me [Jesus]: hates My Father [God] also.
(John 15:24) If I [Jesus] had Not done among them the works which No other did; they would Not have had sin. But now they have both seen and hated Me [Jesus] and My Father [God].

*** (Isaiah 55:8-to-11) For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the LORD.
(Isa 55:9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isa 55:10) For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and does not return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring out and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
(Isa 55:11) so shall My WORD be, which goes out of My mouth; it shall NOT return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall certainly do what I sent it to do.

*** (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?

*** (2Corinthains 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.

*** (Hebrews 4:16) Therefore let us come “Boldly” to the throne of grace; that we may -> obtain mercy: -> and find grace to help -> in time of need.

*** (2Corinthains 3:5) NOT that we are sufficient of ourselves, to think “Anything” as of ourselves; But our sufficiency is of God [Alone];

*** (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.

… MOST do not realize that it was: ‘NOT’… the Roman soldiers –> that nailed Christ Jesus to the Cross…!

It was the “SINS” of… “ME, My Sins”… that Nailed ‘HIM’ to that Cross…!

True Biblical Confession happens ‘Only’ –> when we are willing to take that… “Personal Responsibility” of: –> “My Sins Nailed ‘HIM’ [Christ Jesus]:–> there to that Cross”…!

“What is ‘Confession’ of SIN – 101” …Blog.

Did You have read completely through this Blog…? You may have to read though it several times. It was NOT written to be a “Quick Fix!” [Band Aid]: in Your relationship with Christ Jesus and your lifetime THINGS You were holding onto…! That will take some time to remedy. No, Not at His Throne of Grace… but in your “Mind & Heart!” “Emotional & Mental & Physical” healing is dependent ON: your ability & willingness… “To Obey Him & His Holy Word!” Your heart response to Him & His Holy Word… IS THE: “ONLY ISSE”…! And NOT: what You have gone through in your life! Prepare You heart and then… SHARE with HIM…? [2Chronicles 12:14 & Ezra 7:10]

He [Jesus] said to him, Do you desire to be made whole?

*** (Hebrews 9:14) how much more will the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God; cleanse our consciences from dead works so that we may serve the “Living God!”
