“Jesus walked on Water: Do You? – 101” …Blog.

“Jesus walked on Water: ‘Do You?’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (Matthew 14:25) And in the fourth watch [0300-0600] of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.

*** (John 2:3-to-7) And when they lacked wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, They have no wine.
(John 2:4) Jesus said to her, Woman, what do I have to do with you? My hour has not yet come.
(John 2:5) His mother said to the servants, Whatever He says to you, do it.
(John 2:6) And there were six stone water pots there, according to the purification of the Jews, each containing two or three measures.
(John 2:7) Jesus said to them, Fill the water pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

(Luke 13:14-to-17) And answering, the synagogue ruler, being Angry because Jesus had Healed on the Sabbath day, said to the crowd, There are six days in which it is right to work. Therefore in them come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.
(Luke 13:15) And the Lord answered him and said, Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loosen his ox or ass from the stall and lead it away, to give it drink?
(Luke 13:16) And ought Not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham whom Satan has bound, lo these eighteen years, be Loosened from this bond on the Sabbath day?
(Luke 13:17) And when He had said these things, all His adversaries were ashamed. And all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.

*** (John 2:23-24-25) And as He [Jesus] was in Jerusalem at the Passover, at the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the miracles which He did.
(John 2:24) But Jesus did Not commit Himself to them, Because He knew All
(John 2:25) and did Not need that anyone should testify of man. For He knew what was in man. [Romans 3:10-to-18]

*** (John 21:24-25) This is the disciple [John] who testifies of these things and wrote these things. And we know that his testimony is True.
(John 21:25)  And there are also many things, whatever Jesus did, which, IF they should be written singly, I suppose the world itself could Not contain the books that would be written. Amen.

Can You walk on Water… “Yes or No”…? And NO, I am Not speaking about walking on a frozen lake! Today, someone said to me… “Jesus Kept the Sabbath, and so do I”…! Christ Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, was Jewish! He kept all the… “Whole LAW”… that was given to His Covenant People: “Israel”…! Are You Jewish…? What tribe are You from? He was from the Tribe of Judah. There is NO Jew today; that can ‘show or prove’ their Jewish Lineage! Did You know that: all the records were destroyed, circa “70 AD!” So, “Do You really believe You can keep the Sabbath”…? And do You REALLY: Keep it According: to the “ALL: Requirements of the Scriptures”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?
Perhaps we should see a list of some of the… “Sabbath Requirements”…?

·       You may NOT… Cook…! “Exodus 35:3.”
·       You cannot travel, more than 1/5 mile…! “Acts 1:12 & Joshua 3:4-5.”
·       You put No one to Death for breaking the Sabbath…! “Exodus 31:14.”
·       Do You, Sacrifice Two Lambs, without blemish…! “Numbers 28:9-10.”
·       And You pretend to tell Others… “You Keep the Sabbath”…? “Proverbs 22:12.”

Siege of Jerusalem (70)

Christ Jesus did Many Miracles… to Validate… His Message! He… “Walked On Water” & “Turned Water into Wine” & “Healed on the Sabbath” & Many other things! But HE did NOT commit Himself to them…! “MANY” who say they are Christians [?]… have been confused by “Wrong Teaching” about keeping the Law! One more time, may I ask… “Do You walk on Water”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? Does Christ Jesus… intend for US… “To Walk On Water”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?

“Please tell me about ‘Sabbath’ keeping – 101” …Blog.

*** (Galatians 2:16) knowing that a man is ‘NOT’ justified by works of the Law, but through ‘Faith’ [John 7:38-39] in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be ‘Justified’ by the faith in Christ, and Not by works of the Law. For all flesh  will ‘NOT’ be justified  by works of law.

*** (James 2:10) For whoever shall keep the whole Law and Yet offend in One point, he is “Guilty of ALL!”

*** (Romans 10:3-4) For they, being ‘Ignorant’ of God's righteousness and going about to establish their ‘own’ righteousness, have ‘Not’ submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.
(Rom 10:4) For “Christ” is the end of the ‘Law’ for righteousness for everyone who believes.

*** (John 6:63-to-33) It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits Nothing. The Words that I [Jesus] speak to you are Spirit and are Life.
(John 6:64) But there are some of you who do Not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did Not believe, and who is the one betraying Him.
(John 6:65) And He [Jesus] said, Because of this I said to you that no one can come to Me unless it was given to him from My Father [God].
(John 6:66) From this time “Many” of His disciples went back into the things behind, and walked no more with Him.

*** (Galatians 3:2-3) This ONLY I would learn from you: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit by works of the law, OR by hearing of faith? [Acts 15:8-9]
(Gal 3:3) Are you so Foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, do you NOW perfect yourself in the flesh [Law]?

Please allow me to ask you a “Question”…? How does a ‘Finite Human Being’… earn their “Eternal Salvation”… from an “Infinite God”…? He or She… “Can Not!” Mankind is “Sinful” by nature… born in ‘Sin & Trespasses’… passed on to the Human Race… by the ‘Rebellion & Disobedience’… of Adam & Eve…! We are born “Sinful”… and that is why Christ Jesus came… to redeem a Lost Human Race! How then can a sinful person… earn salvation… from a Holy Eternal God…? They “Cannot earn salvation”… it is the “Gift of God”… by His Grace, Love & Mercy…! What it gets down to is… Who do You Believe…? God and His Holy Word… or what some Church Denomination… “Teaches”…?

“Salvation ‘Confusion?’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (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.

*** (Proverbs 29:25) The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever puts his trust in the LORD Jehovah; shall be safe.

“MANY” People CLAIM: to Know Christ Jesus as their Savior & Lord…? And then are “Completely Ignorant” about HOW Salvation comes About…?  It is all a “Matter of Your HEART!” God provides His… “Grace, Mercy & Love & Repentance”… and You: Choose to “Accept or Deny”… “HIM”…! This Divine Transaction is DONE by God Alone! He sees your… “Heart Response”… and then Gives His Holy Spirit! That is what… “Acts 15:8-9”… is All About!

One More Time…!

“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”!

“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me draw [Compel] him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

*** (John 6:37) All that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus]; shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me; I will in no way cast out.

*** (Act 15:8-9) God, Who knows everyone's Heart, showed them He Approved by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us.
(Act 15:9) He made No distinction between them [Gentiles] and us [Jews], because He [God] cleansed their hearts by Faith.

Could it be ‘Any Easier’ than that…? You simply respond to GOD…! Or You choose to “Reject Him”…! Salvation is being Born Again, born from Above by… the Holy Spirit of God! It is based on the… “Finished Work of Redemption”… by Christ Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God! “Religion” or your “Church’s Teachings” or Any “Denominational Teaching” it NOT to be Trusted! Only what the Holy Word of God… “Teaches”… is valid about Salvation!

Perhaps a “Simple Overview…?

… Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Our PASSOVER LAMB of GOD, 1Cor 5:7 & Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Out SABBATH [Rest] -> Matthew 11:27-to-30...!
… The TRUE WORSHIP of GOD... is a Function of the Indwelling HOLY SPIRIT [Rom 8:9] in our Hearts and NOT... of the Day of the Week...! AGAIN…

… TRUE Christianity is “NOT A RELIGION”…! It is a Relationship with GOD, by the “FINISHED WORK of Redemption”… by Christ Jesus [Messiah] the Passover Lamb of GOD [1Corinthains 5:7] Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Our “PASSOVER LAMB of GOD”…!
ONE MORE TIME… Christ Jesus [Messiah] is our -> SABBATH [Rest]! [Matthew 11:27-to-30]...!  The TRUE WORSHIP of GOD... is a Function of the HOLY SPIRIT [Romans 8:9 & Acts 15:8-9] in our Hearts and “NOT”... of the Day of the Week...!

*** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by Not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness]; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [in Christ alone]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].

“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 11:27-to-30) All things are delivered to Me [Jesus] by My Father [God]. And no one knows the Son [Jesus]: except the Father [God]. Nor does anyone know the Father [God] except the Son [Jesus], and the one [You]–> to whom the Son [Jesus] will reveal Him [God].
(Mat 11:28) Come to Me [Jesus] all you who labor and are heavy laden; and I will give you rest.
(Mat 11:29) Take My yoke on you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.
(Mat 11:30) For My yoke is easy; and My burden is light.

“Did GOD give You that ‘Dream?’ – 101” …Blog.

“Did GOD give You that ‘Dream?’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (Hebrews 1:1-2) God, Who at many times and in many ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,
(Heb 1:2) has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, [Christ Jesus] Whom He [God] has appointed heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds, [Colossians 1:12-to-19]

*** (Ecclesiastes 5:7) For in the multitude of “Dreams”, both Words and Vanities Abound; but fear God. [Romans 3:18]

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble than those of Thessalonica; in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind; and searched the Scriptures daily; to see IF those things were so. [Or Not?]

Recently on FB and other Social Internet sites… there have been MANY who… “Claim Visions & Dreams”… from God? Do You really believe that GOD: has set aside “His Holy Word” and NOW is communicating with ‘Dreams & Visions”…? Please simply answer, “Yes or NO”…?

*** (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.

“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
*** (Matthew 24:35) The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but My Words shall “NOT” pass away.

*** (Mar 13:31) Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall “NOT” pass away.

*** (Luke 21:33) The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but My Words shall “NOT” pass away.

“What about ‘Acts 2’ & ‘Joel 2’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (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]

For those of You who KNOW the Scriptures… do You remember the many times GOD: dealt with His Covenant people Israel…? After rejecting HIS: “Love, Mercy, Grace & Chastening”… they did NOT want the OT Prophets to speak His HOLY WORD! Is it any different Today…? Those who claim to Know HIM: still do NOT what to Hear His HOLY WORD…! Any FALSE: “Supposed Apostle, Pastor, Teacher, Evangelist, Prophet, Etc.”… can “Bamboozle” MOST: with false claims of ‘New Revelation’ from God! Their ‘Hearers’ do NOT for themselves, KNOW: or “Want to Know”… what His Holy Word: “Really Says”…! How else do all these “False Ones” fly around in Private Jets? Or live in Mansions, while their ‘Followers’ are just plain folk…? They ‘Disdain’ the Politicians: and yet ‘Applaud’ their False Preachers…? What is WRONG with that Picture…?

*** (Psalms 98:2-3) The LORD Jehovah has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has unveiled to the eyes of the nations [Gentiles].
(Psalms 98:3) He has remembered His mercy and His Truth toward the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of the LORD Jehovah.

*** (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].

*** (2Thessalonians 2:11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a “LIE”,

*** (2Timothy 3:7) These WOMEN are always studying -> but are NEVER able to arrive at a Full Knowledge of the Truth. [John 17:17]

“Is there ‘New Revelation’ from God today? – 101” …Blog.
*** (2Peter 1:20-21) First of all, you must understand this: NO prophecy in Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation,
(2Pet 1:21) because no prophecy ever originated through a human decision. Instead, men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

*** (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.

“Lobster Late at Night”…? Did You ever have a hankering for some special food? Pregnant wives, always have their husbands: get them “Whatever” they have that ‘Craving’ for! I have learned: NOT to eat any ‘Shellfish’ late at Night! Whenever I do, I have “Weird Dreams!” Could I honestly say, “That it was from God?” Absolutely “NOT!” It was from the Shellfish: “Late at Night!”…LOL! Did You hear the story about the Farmer whose Cow had Twins? He told his wife, I am dedicating One of them: to the LORD. Some months later, he came in with a ‘Sad Face’ and told his wife… “The Lord’s Cow Died!” Did You notice, “HE did NOT” tell his wife, “Which One”… belonged to the LORD: when they were “Born”…? So too Today, “MANY” who seldom if ever… “Read & Study & Obey”… His Holy Word… KNOW what the Bible really Teaches! The know some of the Texts: and some of the Persons: and some of the Happenings! BUT… they cannot take the Scriptures… and DEFEND with Bible Chapters & Verses… “Salvation in Christ Jesus!” And NOW… they Expect YOU… to Believe that GOD: spoke to Them… in a “Dream”…? Absolutely… “NOT!”

*** (Revelation 22:11) Let the one who does what is evil continue to do evil, and let the filthy person continue to be filthy, and the righteous person continue to do what is right, and the holy person continue to be holy."

*** (Matthew 16:4) A Wicked and Adulterous generation Seeks after a SIGN. And there shall ‘NO’ sign be given to it; except the sign of the prophet Jonah. And He [Jesus] left them and went away.

*** (James 3:1) Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged [by God] more severely.

*** (John 20:29) Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen Me you have believed. Blessed are they who have Not seen and have believed.

*** (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; [Miracles] so much so that, IF it were possible, they would deceive even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, I [Jesus] -> have told you beforehand.

*** (Mark 7:6-7-8) He [Jesus] told them, "Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites. As it is written, 'These people honor me with their lips: –> but their hearts are far from Me [God].
(Mark 7:7) Their worship of Me is empty: –> because they teach human rules as doctrines.'
(Mark 7:8) You ‘abandon’ the Commandment of God: –> and hold to ‘human’ tradition."

*** (Proverbs 14:15) The simple [Foolish] believes every word; but the wise man watches his step.

Oh yes, before anyone gets “Side Tracked”… do You realize How Very Many: follow “False Prophecy Teachings”…? Because the ‘Study’ of the HOLY Word of GOD is Intense and requires a “Due Diligence”: there is the “Blessing of TRUTH!” Have You seen any of those Gold Mining programs on the Discovery Channel? One provides a Lot of Effort… for a little Gold! Yet in the Spiritual Realm, God’s Indwelling Holy Spirit… Teaches the Truly Born Again… from His Holy Word! Did You realize that GOD has provided a “CAVIAT”… to knowing His Holy Word…? It is simply… “Obedience!” God will NOT reveal His Holy TRUTH… to those who are NOT willing to Obey His Holy Word! Surely there are Many who have ONLY the “Academic Truth” from His Holy Word. Yet they LACK: the “Practical Application & Spiritual Discernment!” Why would GOD reveal His Truth to ONE… and “HE being Omniscient”… Knowing that, that ONE: will NOT Obey His HOLY WORD…? Would You give your ‘Credit Card’ to an… “Irresponsible & Slothful”… member for your Family…? Absolutely… “NOT!” Neither does GOD, the God of the Bible…!

*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he ‘Will NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD.

*** (Jeremiah 13:23) Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard its spots? Then you also may do good; who are ‘Accustomed’ to: Doing Evil?

“Is Christian ‘Obedience’… Optional? – 101”…Blog.

*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) MANY = will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word, and NOT merely hearers who “DECEIVE” themselves.

*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and “Do ‘NOT’ Do’ - what I [Jesus] say?
