“Saved by ‘HOPE’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Numbers 23:19) God is NOT a man that He should LIE, Neither the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth. [Ps 138:2]
*** (Romans 8:24-to-28) For we are saved by Hope. But Nope that is seen is Not Hope; for what anyone sees, why does he also Hope for it?
(Rom 8:25) But if we Hope for that which we do Not see, Then we wait for it with patience.
(Rom 8:26) Likewise the [Holy] Spirit also helps our infirmities. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning’s which cannot be uttered.
(Rom 8:27) And He [God] searching the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
(Rom 8:28) And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
*** (1Corinthians 15:12-to-24) But if Christ is proclaimed, that He was raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
(1Cor 15:13) But if there is No resurrection of the dead, Neither has Christ been raised.
(1Cor 15:14) And if Christ has Not been raised, Then our proclamation is worthless, and your faith is also worthless.
(1Cor 15:15) And we are also found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified of God that He raised Christ; Whom He did not raise if the dead are not raised.
(1Cor 15:16) For if the dead are Not raised, then Christ is not raised.
(1Cor 15:17) And if Christ is not raised, your faith is foolish; you are yet in your sins.
(1Cor 15:18) Then also those that fell asleep [died] in Christ were lost.
(1Cor 15:19) If in this life only we have Hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
(1Cor 15:20) But now Christ has risen from the dead, and has become the first fruit of those who slept. [died]
(1Cor 15:21) For since death is through man, the resurrection of the dead also is through a Man.
(1Cor 15:22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all will be made alive.
(1Cor 15:23) But each in his own order: Christ the first-fruit, and afterward they who are Christ's at His coming;
(1Cor 15:24) then is the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He makes to cease all rule and all authority and power.
(1Cor 15:25) for it is right for Him to reign until He has put all the enemies under His feet.
(1Cor 15:26) The last enemy made to cease is death.
*** (John 14:1-2-3) Let Not your heart be troubled. You believe in God [Father], believe also in Me [Jesus].
(John 14:2) In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [Romans 8:9]
(John 14:3) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that where I am, you may be also.
*** (Hebrews 2:12-to-15) saying, "I will declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You."
(Heb 2:13) And again, "I will put My trust in Him." And again, "Behold Me and the children whom God has given Me."
(Heb 2:14) Since then the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise partook of the same; that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death (that is, the Devil),
(Heb 2:15) and deliver those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Some time ago… I saw a bumper sticker: “Since I gave up Hope, I feel much better!” That’s the ‘Worlds Hope’, because it is all “Corrupted!” There is even a song with the same title. Those of this world, have NO Hope: because they Have Rejected the… “Love, Mercy & Grace of God”…! Surely the “Many “who voted for Change: now realize, “But Change to What”…? “False Religion” and the “Corrupt Political Systems” of this world: “Offer No Real Hope!” Have You been to Mexico City, and seen the Catholics walking on “Bloody Knees” doing repentance? Or here in America, where American Mothers, “Sacrifice their Innocent Babies on the Alter of Abortion” in the name of “Sexual Pleasures”…? How can they even speak of World Peace: when there is so very much “Hate”…? This corrupt world offers “No Hope” to those who have Rejected the “Finished Work of Redemption” by Christ Jesus, LORD of Lords, & KING of Kings!
*** (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.

(Rom 12:3) For by the grace given to me I ask every one of you ‘Not’ to think of yourself more highly than you should think; rather to think of yourself with sober judgment on the measure of faith that God has ASSIGNED each of you.
(Rom 12:4) For we have many parts in one body; but these parts do ‘Not’ all have the same function [office].

“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
Do You “Meditate” on His Holy Word… every Opportunity…? Even when I am watching videos or the TV: I am constantly JUDGING Everything I see or hear! Have You noticed, there is Never: a “Clear Delineation” between “Right & Wrong!” Only varying degrees of good & evil. TV is Especially Corrupting, because the FAKE: “Right & Wrong, AND True & False!” Each morning I start my day out: Giving to my LORD: the first of my day! As the Covenant People Israel, were to gather the Manna, so in my Mind: I clear it out and make Room for the Truth: of His Holy Word! This provides one with a Clear Spiritual Perspective, before the Press of Life; “Muddles out Thinking”…! [2Corinthains 10:3-to-6]
*** (Philippians 3:13-14) My brothers, I do Not count myself to have taken possession, But one thing I do, Forgetting the things behind and Reaching Forward to the things before,
(Philip 3:14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
(Philip 3:15) Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, be of this mind. And if in anything you are otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this to you.

*** (1Corinthains 14:8-9-10) For also if a trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for the battle?
(1Cor 14:9) So also you, if you do not give a clear word through the language, how will it be known what is being said? For you will be speaking into the air.

(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.
