*** (Psalms 51:1-to-10) To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your loving-kindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
(Psa 51:2) Wash me completely from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
(Psa 51:3) For I confess my transgressions; and my sin is ever before me.
(Psa 51:4) Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done evil in Your sight; that You might be justified when You speak, and be clear when You judge.

(1Ki 11:2) of the nations which the LORD Jehovah had said to the sons of Israel, You shall Not go in to them, and they shall Not go in to you; surely they will turn away your heart After their gods. Solomon clung to these in love.
(1Ki 11:3) And he had seven hundred wives , princesses, and three hundred concubines . And his wives turned away his heart.

“Judas: ‘Family’ members – 101” …Blog.
Have You ever been… “Betrayed”…? Throughout the Holy Word of GOD, there are many such references. Above are listed only a few. God, the God of Israel was “Betrayed” by His Covenant People, “Israel!” Almost all the human kings of Israel… “Betrayed”… the Lord and His Holy Word! What was the Command: that the LORD Commanded… “All the Kings of Israel”…? Simply open your Bible and read out loud… “Deuteronomy 17:14-to-20”…? Few kept these ‘Precepts!’ Christ Jesus was “Betrayed” by Judas, even after Judas had seen so many miracles. Today, such “Betrayal” is common place.
*** (1Timothy 5:24-25) Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment. And some they also follow after. [Ecclesiastes 12:13-14]
In our American Society, “Wedding Vows” [Deuteronomy 23:21]… are cast aside as easily as: ‘Yesterdays Newspaper!’ Promiscuity among the ‘Married’ is as plenteous: as those ‘Unmarried.’ Children are taught to… NOT: “Honor your Father & Mother!” Society in general has “No Fear of God”… Nor do they want Any! The “NEWS” hardly ever tells the complete “TRUTH”: only that which has been… “Politically Corrected to Protect the Liars!” “Betrayal” has become the ‘New Norm’, here in American Society! Just how many… “Men & Women”… have been “Betrayed” by their… “Spouses, Children & Relatives”…? And do I even mention those “Employers” who have “Shut their Doors”: leaving Employees without Work. These lists GO: “ON & On & on”…! Or those ‘Political Promises’ of CHANGE… “But to What?” Did You really think that “You” would be… “Exempt from ‘ANY’ of This”…?
*** (1Peter 4:12) Beloved, do Not be astonished at the fiery trial which is to try you, as though a strange thing happened to you,
(1Pe 4:13) but rejoice according as you are partakers of Christ's suffering, so that when His glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy.
(1Pe 4:14) If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of God and of glory rests on you. Truly according to them, He is blasphemed, but according to you He is glorified.
*** (Job 2:4) And Satan answered the LORD Jehovah and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man has he will give for his life.
(Job 2:5) But indeed put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse You to Your face.
(Job 2:6) And the LORD Jehovah said to Satan, Behold, he is in your hand, but save his life.
(Job 2:7) And Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD Jehovah and struck Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the top of his head.
(Job 2:8) And he took a broken piece of pottery to scrape himself with. And he sat down among the ashes.
(Job 2:9) And his wife said to him, Do you still hold to your integrity? Curse God and die!
(Job 2:10) But he said to her, You speak as one of the foolish ones speak. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
*** (Matthew 5:45) so that you may become sons of your Father [God] in Heaven. For He makes His sun to rise on the Evil and on the Good; and sends rain on the Just and on the Unjust.
*** (2Corinthains 12:8-9-10) For this thing I besought the Lord three times [3X], that it might depart from me.
(2Cor 12:9) And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may overshadow me.
(2Cor 12:10) Therefore I am pleased in weaknesses, in insults, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am powerful.
*** (Job 5:6-to-9) For Affliction does Not come forth from the dust, Nor does Trouble spring up out of the ground;
(Job 5:7) but man is born to Trouble, as the sparks fly Upward.
(Job 5:8) Truly, I would seek to God, and to God I would put my plea,
(Job 5:9) Who is doing great things, even beyond searching; marvelous things without number,
*** (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. [James 4:3]
*** (Romans 2:4) Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, and the forbearance and long-suffering, Not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to Repentance? [2Timothy 2:25-26]
Did You know that “Any Betrayal”… is an Opportunity for You…? Some of us by personality or upbringing trust everyone. Others trust no one! Surely… “NOTHING”… can touch a True Child of God: unless He GOD, permits it! [Proverbs 4:7] Most of the time, we as humans, want “Immediate Understanding” as to WHY… “God allowed this “Betrayal”, in My Life”… [Isaiah 55:8-to-11]? When You were ‘Born Again’ by the Holy Spirit of God, did You immediately start to Study His Holy Word for Wisdom? [2Corinthains 4:16] If You did, then You did Not miss out about the many Bible Verses that speak about the “Sufferings”… which the ‘Body of Christ’, was privy to? Surely, You did Not miss that God the Father will PRUNE His Vine, that it “Bears More Fruit?” Many of US… simply add Christ to our lives: forgetting that… “He is LORD of Lords & KING of Kings”…! He does Not have to explain to His Real Children what He is doing in their Lives! “The Just shall Live by FAITH”…! Simply PUT: as Christ Jesus “Obediently” [John 8:28-29] went to the Cross… “We should Also”… Take up our Cross & Follow Him!
*** (Colossians 1:24) who now rejoice in my sufferings on your behalf, and I fill up the things lacking of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh, on behalf of His body, which is the church;
*** (Romans 6:1-2) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(Rom 6:2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
*** (John 15:1-to-6) 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 [Jesus] have spoken to you.
(John 15:4) Abide in Me [Jesus], 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 [Jesus] 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.
*** (Hebrews 13:5-6) Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have, for God has said, "I will never leave you or abandon you.
(Heb 13:6) Hence we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper; I will Not be afraid. What can Anyone do to Me?"
*** (Hebrews 12:6-7) for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and He scourges every son whom He receives." [John 15:1-2-3]
(Heb 12:7) If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons, for what son is he Whom the Father does Not chasten? [None!]
*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the Fruit of the [Holy] Spirit consists of every form of Goodness, Righteousness, and “TRUTH”. [2Peter 1:1-to-10]
“The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – 101”…Blog. [1/7]
Did You know that Christ Jesus has a plan for your LIFE…? Just perhaps He had to “Remove” some of your dead branches, so that You could bear “Fruit for Him”…? Dead branches are Comfortable for the Tree! But Not: to bear fruit on, Because there is “NO Life in Dead Branches!” Do You realize that “Christ Jesus as GOD”… had to “Learn Obedience”… as “Christ Jesus the Man” -> the Passover Lamb of God…? May I simply suggest that… He has allowed these things… Into Your Life… so that You TOO: may learn Obedience to Him…?
*** (Jeremiah 45:5) And do You: seek ‘great things’ for yourself? Do Not seek them; for behold, I will bring evil on all flesh, says the LORD Jehovah. But I will give your life to you as a prize, in all places where you go.
*** (Hebrews 5:8) though being a Son, yet He [Jesus] learned obedience by the things which He Suffered. [1Corinthians 5:7 Christ our Passover]
*** (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)
