“The Little Foxes – 101” …Blog.
*** (Son 2:15) Take us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines; for our vines have tender grapes.
*** (1Timothy 5:24) Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment. And some they also follow after.
*** (Psalms 90:8) You [God] have set our iniquities before You, our secret sins in the light of Your face.
*** (1Timothy 1:19-20) holding faith and a good conscience, which some have put away and made Shipwreck as to faith.
(1Tim 1:20) Among these are Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan so that they may learn Not to blaspheme.
Throughout His Holy Word, GOD uses “Anthropomorphic” terms. These can be understood by ‘Humans’, like when Christ Jesus said, “I am the Door!” [John 10:7-to-18] Or when GOD said, “Jeremiah 23:29”, My word is a Fire & Hammer! So too, such “Word Pictures” are used to communicate His Holy Truth. Surely each Christian [?] understands FRUIT: and how the Holy Spirit bears His Fruit… “In & Through Us?” Of course there is NO GOOD in Us… and the any good is His Holy Spirit… working though these “Earthen Vessels’ of our human corrupt bodies. What hinders us from Bearing Fruit to God? Could it be those… ‘Little Sins’… that we have become so comfortable with? When someone makes a Risqué remark… “Do You Laugh: or Blush in Shame?” That simply tells You where your Heart is with… “Him!”
*** (1Jn 4:4) You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because HE, “WHO” is in you: is Greater than he [Satan] who is in the world. [Romans 8:9]
*** (James 3:12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can NO fountain both yield Salt water and Fresh.
*** (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]
Do You love the Holy Word of GOD…? Do You make it a point to ‘meditate’ on His Holy Word…? God’s Indwelling Holy Spirit… is continually… teaching those who are “Truly Born Again!” The Holy Spirit is the REAL Teacher of… “All Truth”… found in the Bible. Many American Christians [?] practice a… “Social Cultural Christianity”…! Say it isn’t SO…? Need I prove this FACT…? How many of You, who say You belong to Christ Jesus… and are His Child… “Played Halloween” last week…? Surely OT Israel were FORBIDDEN by the Scriptures, to imitate any of the Heathen Demonic practices. American Christians [?]; do NOT hold to the “Complete Authority” of His Holy Word! To MANY of them, “James 1:22 & Luke 6:46”… are merely suggestions! They would RATHER offend Christ Jesus, than their “Neighbors & Co-workers!” The ‘Foxes’ have surely nibbled at their ‘Vines’, and destroyed their ‘Fruit!’
*** (Proverbs 16:18) Pride goes before destruction; and a haughty spirit before a fall.
*** (Matthew 13:12) For whoever has, to him shall be given; and he shall have more abundance. But whoever does not have; from him shall be taken away; even that which he has.
“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
*** (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,
*** (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?
*** (Ephesians 5:27) that He [Jesus] might present it to Himself as the glorious church, without spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that it should be Holy and without blemish.
GOD, the God of the Bible… has given us His Holy Word: so that we might have “All the Information” that we need to live “Godly Lives!” We will NEVER be able to use any excuse, BECAUSE: His Holy Word has… “All the INSTRUCTIONS”…! Do You know: how to serve Him, in “Love & Obedience!” When we all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ Jesus… TO: “Receive & Lose Rewards”… what will be your “Excuse?” So very MANY who say they are Christians [?] in America: treat Christ Jesus as “Santa Clause!” They REFUSE to study the Scriptures to see that as HE suffered for Righteousness…! So too His Real Children… will also “Suffer!” When ONE stands for His Truth, found in His Holy Word… “Rejection, Ridicule, Suffering & Yes, maybe even Martyrdom!” There are many such posts about Suffering Christians on the Social Internet sites. And yet we think it “Strange”, when we in our ‘Affluent American Society’… are required to do the Same? Anyone standing for the GOD’S TRUTH… found in His Holy Word… will suffer ‘Persecution!’
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that “man shall Not live by bread alone; but by “Every” –> Word of God.” [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]
“Not by Bread ‘Alone’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might Not sin against You [Lord].
*** (1Peter 4:12-to-19) Beloved, do NOT be astonished at the Fiery trial which is to Try you, as though a Strange thing happened to you,
(1Pet 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.
(1Pet 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.
(1Pet 4:15) But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or a meddler in the affairs of others.
(1Pet 4:16) But if one suffers as a Christian, let him Not be ashamed, but let him glorify God because of this.
(1Pet 4:17) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? [Ecclesiastes 12:13-14]
(1Pet 4:19) Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing, as to a faithful Creator.
*** (Matthew 10:34-to-38) Do NOT think that I [Jesus] have come to bring Peace on earth. I did ‘Not’ come to send peace: but a SWORD.
(Mat 10:35) For I [Jesus] have come to set a man Against his father; and the daughter Against her mother; and the daughter-in-law Against her mother-in-law.
(Mat 10:36) And a man's Foes –> shall be those of his Own household.
(Mat 10:37) He who loves father or mother More than Me [Jesus] –> is NOT worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter More than Me [Jesus] –> is NOT worthy of Me.
(Mat 10:38) And he who does NOT take up his cross and follow Me [Jesus] –> is NOT worthy of Me.
“Judas: ‘Family’ members – 101” …Blog.
*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear. But let NOT God speak with us, lest we die.
(Exo 20:20) And Moses said to the people, Do not fear, for God has come to TEST you, and so that His fear may be before your faces, so that you may NOT Sin.
Did You read the above Bible verses… “Exodus 20:19-20”…? Do You realize that Moses said those verses RIGHT AFTER… he gave the… “10 Commandments!” Israel, God’s Covenant Chosen People, had just left Egypt and seen all the “Miracles of God’s Deliverance!” Yes most American Christians… parallel them in their “Complaints!” In reality, they are JUST LIKE them, thinking that Political Leadership is the “Solution to All Problems!” What the FAIL to Recognize… is that the Problem is “US!” “I is the Middle of SIN”…! As Israel did NOT want to “Hear & Obey GOD”… so too American Christians [?]… do NOT want TO: “Read” & “Study” & “Obey”… God’s Holy Word! They would rather have their Pastor, or Church or Denomination tell them “What to Believe!” Please may I ask… “How Many of You: Say You Love JESUS”…? The “Christ Jesus”, the Passover Lamb of God, the KING of Kings & LORD of Lords, WHO found In His Holy Word! You “CANNOT LOVE” the Person… WITHOUT LOVING: His Holy Word…!
“WHO – is the Word of God? – 101” …Blog.
*** (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.
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a FIRE? Says the LORD Jehovah; and like a Hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? [Hebrews 4:11-12-13]
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.
*** (John 5:39-40) You search the Scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life. And they are the ones witnessing of Me [Jesus],
(John 5:40) and you will ‘Not’ come to Me [Jesus]; that you might have life.

*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the Word of the LORD.
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know the Truth; but because you know it; and know that –> no Lie –> is of the Truth.
*** (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.
