*** (1Corinthains 4:2) And the rest, it is sought among Stewards [2Corinthains 4:1-2 & 1Peter 4:10] that one be found FAITHFUL.
*** (Matthew 21:28-to-32) But what do you think? A man had Two sons; and he came to the First and said, Son, go work in my vineyard today.
(Mat 21:29) He answered and said, I will Not. But afterwards he Repented and went.
(Mat 21:30) And he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir; and did “Not” go.
(Mat 21:31) Which of the Two did the will of his father? They said to Him, The first. Jesus said to them, Truly I say to you that the tax-collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
(Mat 21:32) For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did Not believe him. But the tax-collectors and the harlots believed him. And when you had seen it, you did Not Repent afterwards so that you might believe him.
Some years ago, I had two twin chickens… which I kept as Pets, in my back yard. They were named, “Pete & Re-Pete” because they appeared so identical. They slept in a wooden clubhouse and produced the… very most “Delicious Brown Eggs”… I have ever eaten. In addition to Chicken feed which I purchased at my local feed store, they were “Free Range” in my fenced back yard. All day long they would “Peck for Bugs” in my grass yard. They were pets and would come when called: they allowed anyone to ‘hold & pet’ them. And No, I did not eat them afterwards! It seemed like one day, the one would lead: and the next day, the other would lead, taking turns. Too bad “Humans” by nature, are not so ‘Compliant!’ [Matthew 21:28-to-32]
*** (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.

*** (1Jn 4:4) You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because HE, “WHO” is in you [John 7:38-39]: is “Greater” than he [Satan] who is in the world. [Romans 8:9]
*** (Luke 13:6-to-9) Then Jesus told them this parable: "A man had a fig tree that had been planted in his vineyard. He went to look for Fruit on it but didn't find any.
(Luke 13:7) So he said to the gardener, 'Look here! For three years  I have been coming to look for Fruit on this tree but haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it waste the soil?'
(Luke 13:8) But the gardener replied, 'Sir, leave it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and fertilize it.
(Luke 13:9) Maybe next year it'll bear fruit. If not, then Cut it down.'"
Do You “Humble Yourself before God”… and “Allow” the “Fruit of the Holy Spirit”… in your Life? Many here in America ONLY Play… “Christian[?]!” It has become a… “Spoken Preference”… instead of a “Changed Lifestyle!” Few DAILY: “Read & Study & Obey”… their Bibles. Yet they will ‘Carry’ them to be seen by ‘Others’! MOST cannot open their Bibles and… “Defend with the Scriptures”… what they truly believe! Say it isn’t “SO”…? The Spiritual Condition of our Nation today, PARALLES: “Back Slidden ISRAEL!” They Sacrificed their Children to “Molek & Baal” and Rejected the… “Word, Precepts, Statutes, Ordinances & the Law of God”…! And then “Followed the Heathen Rituals” of those False Gods: they had disposed from the Land! [Deuteronomy 9:2728-29] Today, “Politics” is the New god [Small-g] of MOST of the American Christians! Very FEW speak about being… “Truly Born Again”…! And the “Finished Work of Redemption” by Christ Jesus: the “LORD of Lords” & “KING of Kings”…! Their “Jesus is the ONE”… that fits nicely into their “Denominations Teaching!” MOST do Not take their Bibles… and “TEST EVERYTHIG” [Acts 17:11] shared from the Pulpit of their Churches. In their Hears: they belong to the Church of “Rodney King Denomination!” “Can’t we All… Just Get Along”…? “Can’t We”…?

*** (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.

*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation; beloved, I had need to write to you; to exhort you to ‘contend earnestly’ for the [True] Faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some people have slipped in; among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are Ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
