“Santa ‘DEBT & CREDIT’ Clause – 101” …Blog.

“Santa ‘DEBT & CREDIT’ Clause – 101” …Blog.

*** (Luke 4:4) Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'One must NOT live on bread alone, but on “EVERY” Word of God.

*** (Luke 14:28-29-30) For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he may have enough to finish it;
(Luke 14:29) lest perhaps, after he has laid the foundation and is not able to finish, all those seeing begin to mock him,
(Luke 14:30) saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.

*** (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.

*** (Matthew 16:26) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

This afternoon I needed a few things and went to Wal-Mart…! Needless to say the store was ‘Packed’ at 3PM. I got my specialty mustard and chicken thighs and a few other things. I have not seen such a crowd this close to Christmas in a number of years. This got me thinking. Would You as my Brother or Sister in Christ Jesus… allow me this Liberty…? No, I am “NOT the Accuser” of the Brethren…! We as members of the Church of Christ, the Bride of Christ, are to “LIVE”… as a witness to this dying world… of His Grace, Mercy & Love in our Lives…! (Jeremiah 20:9) Perhaps a few questions…?

1.       Are You a Born Again Christian in… ‘Fellowship & Obedience’… to His Holy Word…?
2.      Do You meet with Christ Jesus… ‘Daily’… in His Holy Word…?
3.      How old are ‘You’ this year…?
4.      How many years have You… been purchasing those ‘Things’ needed for Christmas…?
5.      Did You LIE to your young Children about… ‘Santa Clause’…?
6.      Do You put your… ‘Christmas Presents’… on your Credit Cards…?
7.       Do You immediately pay off your… Christmas Credit Card Bills… before they are Due…?
8.      How much do You typically spend for Christmas…?
9.      Has your Christmas spending… ‘increased or decreased’… in the last 2 years…?
10.   How much ‘Extra’ do You spend of Christmas food stuffs…?
11.    Do You typically save… ‘All Year Long’… for your Christmas spending…?
12.   How long do You take to typically… ‘pay off’… that extra spending for Christmas…?
13.   What is the… ‘Approximate amount’… that You spend during Christmas…?
14.   Do You even know what the… ‘Real Amount’… truly is…?
15.   You know that in… ‘52 weeks’… Christmas will come again, don’t You…?
16.   Do You save all year long… for those extra expenses… for Christmas…?
17.    Will You… ‘REPEAT’… your same spending habits… this ‘Next Year’…?
18.   Have You ever thought about such questions…?
19.   Did You ever do anything about IT…?
20.  ‘Reserved’…!

*** (Luke 14:28) For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he may have enough to finish it;

*** (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.

… 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.
*** (1Jn 1:9-10) 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.

*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore bring forth fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

*** (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]

*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.

*** (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 3:15-16-17) And that from a CHILD you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 3:16) All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in righteousness:
(2Tim 3:17) That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Doctrine       = One Way…!
Reproof         = Wrong Way…!
Correction    = Turn Around…!
Instruction   = Only This Way…!

*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) STUDY EARNESTLY 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,

*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain Because you have become too lazy to Understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.

I will close this Blog… asking Christ Jesus, that HE… will bring You into a mature (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) relationship with Him, by your Obedience. Remember we are the… Salt of the Earth…! We are to be His Witnesses… “Luke 24:44-to-48”… here in this World. Too many, WHO call His HOLY Name… I believe… do Not realize this…!

*** (James 4:4-to-10) You Adulterers and Adulteresses! Don't you know that friendship with the world means hostility [War] with God? So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God. [Matthew 6:24 & Luke 16:13]
(Jas 4:5) Or do you think the Scripture means nothing: when it says that the Spirit that God caused to live in us jealously yearns for us? [Joshua 24:19]
(Jas 4:6) But He gives all the more grace. And so He says, "God opposes the arrogant: but gives grace to the humble." [2Corinthains 12:6-to-10 & Hebrews 4:16]
(Jas 4:7) Therefore, Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
(Jas 4:8) Come close to God, and He will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and Purify your hearts, you double-minded.
(Jas 4:9) Be Miserable, Mourn, and Cry. [Repent] Let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy into gloom.
(Jas 4:10) Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.

*** (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;

*** (Isaiah 8:13) Sanctify the LORD of hosts Himself; and let him be your Fear, and let HIM be your Dread.

*** (Luke 12:5) But I [Jesus] will warn you of Whom you shall fear: Fear Him [GOD] Who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into “Hell”. Yea, I [Jesus] say to you, fear Him [God].

*** (Hebrews 10:29) Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy of punishment, the one who has trampled the Son of God, and who has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
