“Hearing, they ‘Do NOT Hear’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 13:10) Then the disciples came and said to Jesus, "Why do you speak to people in parables?"
(Mat 13:11) He answered them, "You have been given knowledge about the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but it hasn't been given to them.
(Matt 13:12) For to anyone who has something, more will be given, and he will have more than enough. But from the one who doesn't have anything, even what he has will be taken away from him.
(Matt 13:13) That's why I speak to them in parables, because 'they look but don't see, and they listen but don't hear or understand.'
(Matt 13:14) "With them the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says: 'You will listen and listen but never understand. You will look and look but never comprehend.
(Matt 13:15) For this people's heart has become dull, and their ears are hard of hearing. They have Shut their eyes so that they might Not see with their eyes, and Hear with their ears, and Understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.'
*** (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].
*** (John 6:63-to-66) It is the [Holy] Spirit [Romans 8:9] that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I [Jesus] speak to you are Spirit and are Life. [Eternal]
(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 [Jesus].
With all the advances in Society… both “Scientific & Academic”… Why are So Very MANY: “So Very IGNORANT”…? May I suggest it is Because of their… “Free Will”…? Their ‘misunderstanding’ of Free Will…? They simply apply a… “Carte Blanche”… to “Common Sense & Logic”…! Do You understand this term…? Definition: “Unrestricted power to act at one's own discretion; unconditional authority!” Example: they gave the contractor ‘carte blanche’ to modernize the kitchen. WHY… do so very ‘Many’ who say they are Christians: who supposedly “Believe in Jesus” & “Believe the Bible”… have such a Varied Belief about “His Truth”…? Is it because they are NOT: “Truly Born Again” [Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9], by the Holy Spirit of God…? Could it be here in America, we ‘Sing & Say’… “God Bless America”… while Remaining SILENT: about the Over “4,000+ Daily” -> Innocent Unborn Babies… “Murdered by Abortion”… by their American mothers…? These same, ‘Praise any Soldier’ who fought for America’s Freedoms! Or could it be that… “They do NOT want ANYONE… to tell them such “Truth”…?
*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
*** (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]
*** (Proverbs 16:18) Pride goes before Destruction; and a haughty spirit before a Fall.
*** (1Corinthians 9:27) No, I keep on beating my body and making it my slave so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will NOT somehow be disqualified. [John 10:27-28-29]
*** (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.
“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”
Just because YOU are NOT getting caught in a LIE… “Does NOT mean YOU told the Truth”…!
The American Public has been “So BAMBOOZLED”… by Disinformation: that they can NO Longer: Discern… “Truth”…! They simply “Believe Anything” they are told! Say it isn’t SO…? Perhaps a “Question” to validate this…? When You hear a Sermon, from Church or the Internet: Do You take your Bible and… “Validate or Invalidate”… ALL that You were Exposed TO…? Please answer “Yes or NO”…? Our American Educational system does NOT teach… “Critical Thinking”… in our schools. Most have simply become… “Sheeple”…! Definition: “(Peoples) people who tend to follow the majority in matters of opinion, taste, etc.” Or in the ‘Vernacular’ of that Prophet: Rodney King… “Can’t We All… Just Get Along”…? Absolutely… “NOT”…!
*** (Galatians 4:16) So then did I become your enemy; speaking to you the “Truth?”
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (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.
*** (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.
*** (2John 1:9-10-11) Everyone transgressing and Not abiding in the doctrine of Christ; does Not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has Both the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If ANYONE comes to you and does Not bring this doctrine; Do NOT receive him into your house; Nor speak a Greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who Speaks a greeting to him; Is Partaker of his “EVIL” deeds.
“Agree to Disagree: Not! – 101” …Blog.
*** (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?
Do You ever have such a Conversation with Yourself…? IF: You do “NOT”… THEN: You have become one of the “Sheeple”…! May I share with You a… “Practical Example”…? I seldom, if ‘Ever’… believe the News. Reports of the NSA “Monitoring at your Emails and Phone Calls… have MANY concerned…! They do NOT realize that it is SIMPLY: “Dis-Information”…! Plain “LIES”…! IF they were Truly Doing that… why was there the “Boston Bombing?” Or the “School Shootings”…? With Over “310,000,000 million people in the USA: and over Half: using Cell Phones & being Computer Literate… how many times have these THINGS repeated themselves. Surely IF: the NSA were “REALLY MONITORING”… wouldn’t they have KNOW in advance…? Instead even Christians [?]… are “Repeating these LIES”…!
*** (Proverbs 29:25) The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever puts his trust in the LORD Jehovah; shall be safe.
*** (Proverbs 14:15) The Simple [Foolish] believes every Word; but the wise man watches his step.
“Re-Gifting LIES – 101” …Blog.
IF You have been reading these Bible Blogs… You may see what “Concepts & Ideas” that are communicated therein. “Handling the Truth” concept is to make an “Application of Scripture” to every area of life. One has to… “Think Outside the BOX”…! What does that term really mean? Simply put… “Think Outside Conventional Processes!” As an example, “HOME” For Sale…! That is a “LIE”…! The 14th amendment of the Constitution prohibits selling “People” [Slaves]! A “Home”… is a “House & its People”…! This is simply called… “Obfuscation!” IF You will use a ‘Thesaurus’ you will find “Over 50 Words” for the term “LIE”…! When You take the Holy Word of GOD as your Reference for TRUTH… You will find ‘Many’ such examples in our “American Society”…!
*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are from God and that the whole world lies under the control of the evil one [Satan].

*** (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 4:10) Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.
“The Discerning of Spirits – 101”…Blog.
*** (1Jn 4:1) Beloved, do Not believe every spirit, but TRY the spirits to see if they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
*** (1Corinthains 14:32) The spirits of prophets [True or False] are subject to the prophets [True or False],
