“The NT Born Again & ‘A Still Small Voice’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Kings 19:8-to-12) And he arose, and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God.
(1Ki 19:9) And he came there to a cave and stayed there. And behold, the Word of the LORD Jehovah came to him, and He said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?
(1Ki 19:10) And he [Elijah] said, I have been very zealous for the LORD Jehovah the God of Hosts. For the sons of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, thrown down Your altars, and have slain Your prophets with the sword. And I, I alone, am left. And they seek to take my life away.
(1Ki 19:11) And He [God] said, Go forth and stand on the mountain before the LORD Jehovah. And, behold, the LORD Jehovah passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains, and broke the rocks in pieces before Jehovah. But the LORD Jehovah was Not in the wind. And after the wind was an earthquake, but the LORD Jehovah was Not in the earthquake.
(1Ki 19:12) And after the earthquake was a fire, but Jehovah was Not in the fire. And after the fire was a still, small voice.
*** (1Samuel 15:22-23) And Samuel said, Does the LORD Jehovah delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice [Word] of the LORD Jehovah? Behold, to Obey is better than sacrifice! To Listen is better than the fat of rams!
(1Sam 15:23) For Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idol-worship. Because you have Rejected the Word of the LORD Jehovah, He has also Rejected you [Saul] from being King!
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and do ‘Not’ do - what I [Jesus] say?

*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your Best 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,
*** (Matthew 13:19) When Anyone hears the Word of the kingdom; and does ‘Not’ understand it; then the wicked one [Satan] comes; and catches away that which was sown in his [her] heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.
Most of the Ideas for these Blogs… come from “Ideas or Questions”… asked by ‘Others’. When I get two or more of the Same Questions: about the same “Topic in the same week”… it is time to write one of these Blogs. You may find FALSE CLAIMS by “Many”, saying that GOD spoke to them! Others Falsely Claim: “Direct Divine Prophecy”… given to “Only Them”…! Women are especially in this Category: often Quoting Deborah, from the Book of Judges. Did God call any Women, Apostles…? Sorry NO! The Only “FALSE WOMAN APOSTLE”… is in Revelation 2:20-to-23… “JEZEBEL”…! Often times, these Women LEAVE OUT… “Judges 4:4-to-10”… when ‘BARAK’… “Refused a Commission DIRECTLY from the LORD!” God, the God of the Bible… speaks Daily… through His Holy Word… BUT: the “MANY”… do NOT: “Read & Study & Obey”… His Holy Word… “Daily”…! Why did You think that GOD put… “Acts 17:11”… this in His Holy Word…?
*** (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].
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are Not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed: Day by Day. [John 15:1-2-3]
*** (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”. [Isaiah 28:13]
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,
*** (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 = the Words of the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
*** (Ecclesiastes 5:7) For in the multitude of dreams, both words and vanities abound; but fear God.
The BIBLE is… Complete…! There is NO NEW PROPHECY or Divine REVELATION … from GOD today..!
“What about ‘Acts 2’ & ‘Joel 2’ – 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, whom He has appointed heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds, [Colossians 1:12-to-19]
*** (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.

I have been Born Again for some 35+ years….! It has been my ‘Practice’… [1Corinthains 9:27]… to meet with HIM… in His Holy Word: “Daily”… the first thing before Work. Yes, even when I worked… 8-10-12+ hour days… I got up an hour early to meet with Him. Even when I traveled “Domestically & Internationally”…! This “Quiet Time” is the Frist Fruits of my TIME: which I have given back to Him, as an “Act of Worship! Such a discipline comes from His… “Grace, Love, Truth & Mercy”… working within my Soul! But there is MORE! A “Prepared Heart” is needed for this Practice. Do You have a Communion service at the Church you attend. Does your Pastor READ to the Congregation… “1Corinthains 11:23-to-32”… before the Communion service? IF NOT: something is “Spiritually Wrong”…! A Prepared Heart and a Clear Conscience is Needed for True Fellowship with our LORD…! Before ANY: “SPIRUTUAL PRACTICE”…!
*** (2Chronicles 12:14) And he did the EVIL: –>because he did ‘NOT’: –> Prepare his Heart; to seek the LORD.
*** (Ezra 7:10) For Ezra had “Prepared his Heart” –> to seek the Law of the LORD Jehovah; –> and to do it; –> and to teach statutes and judgments: in Israel.
*** (1Timothy 1:19-20) holding faith and a good conscience, which some have put away and made shipwreck as to Faith.
(1Tim 1:20) Among these are Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I [Paul] have delivered to Satan so that they may LEARN Not to Blaspheme.
You too can simply “Still yourself”… and “Confess any SIN/SINS”… and then: Meet with HIM: in His Holy Word. Often TIMES… God speaks to me… By His Holy Word! Any “Bible Understanding” & “Bible Wisdom”… comes DIRECTLY from Him: by His Indwelling Holy Spirit…! When one has these, why would they want to hear an “Audible Voice”…? The Peace of God… is an Assurance of this TRUTH…! Why then are we TOLD [Commanded]: “Walk in the Spirit”…? Galatians 5:16to-26…? Please tell me “WHY”…?
(Isaiah 32:17) And the “Work of Righteousness” shall be PEACE; and the “Service of Righteousness” shall be… “QUIETNES and HOPE”… Forever.
“The Peace of [With] GOD – 101” …Blog.
(John 14:23-to-27) Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My Word. And My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.
(John 14:24) He who does NOT love Me does NOT keep My Words, and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's Who sent Me.
(John 14:25) I have spoken these things to you, being present with you.
(John 14:26) But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you.
(John 14:27) Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let NOT your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [Psalms 56:3]
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are NOT of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit, since God's Spirit lives in you. And if anyone does “NOT”… have the Spirit of Christ: he does “NOT”… belong to Him [Christ].
*** (Jude 1:19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual: having NOT the [Holy] Spirit.
*** (Ephesians 1:13-14) in Whom also you, Hearing the Word of Truth, the gospel of our salvation, in Whom also believing, [Acts 15:8-9] you were Sealed with the Holy Spirit of Promise, [John 7:38-39]
(Eph 1:14) Who is the earnest of our inheritance, to the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. [Romans 8:9]
(Ephesians 4:30) And do Not -> “GRIEVE” -> the Holy Spirit of God, by Whom you are Sealed until the day of redemption.
“The Anointing – 101”…Blog.
Last October I was in the “Surgical Waiting Room” on a Gurney! They were preparing to do a “Heart Cauterization” on me. I could feel my Flesh getting Anxious: so I cried out to Christ… “Hebrews 4:16”… and Immediately the Peace of God: Overflowed my “Soul, Mind & Heart”…! This Peace of God… in my Inner man… was much better than the Nurse Saying… “Do NOT be Anxious, we have a Something for that which we will put in your IV”…! God spoke in His Peace and I did NOT ‘want or need’… “Any ‘Verbal’ Confirmation”… from Him…! Isn’t “His Inner Peace” given by His Indwelling Holy Spirit… “Enough for Any Situation”…? IF it is NOT enough for You… may I suggest a… “Come to Jesus MEETING”… with HIM…?
*** (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].
