“The NT Born Again & Threefold Mediation - 101”

“The NT Born Again & Threefold Mediation - 101”

*** (Ecclesiastes 4:12) And if one overthrows him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is Not quickly broken.

*** (1Jn 5:5-to-8) Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? [John 7:38-39]
(1Jn 5:6) This is He who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by water only, but by the water and blood. And the Spirit is He who bears witness, because the Spirit is the
Truth. [Romans 8:9]
(1Jn 5:7) For there are three [3] that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one.
(1Jn 5:8) And there are three [3] that bear witness on the earth: the Spirit, and the water [Ephesians 5:26], and the blood [Hebrews 9:14]; and the three are into the one.

*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.

*** (1Timothy 4:15-16) MEDITATE on these things. Devote your life to them so that everyone can see your progress.
(1Tim 4:16)  Pay close attention to your life and your teaching. Persevere in these things, for if you do this, you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.

Are YOU Truly Born Again by the Indwelling Holy Spirit of God…? Does Your heart yearn to know More about His Holy Word and His Truths found… “THEREIN”…? When You are not actively studying His Holy Word… Do You Meditate on “His Holy Truth”…? The NT Believer must be continually growing in His Grace, Mercy & Love… or they will “Stagnate!” Do You periodically read the EXAMPLES of the Seven Churches of Revelation and see IF You show any such ‘Tendencies’…? Do You find your mind gravitating to the “Truths of Scripture”… or the “Pleasures, Trials & Tribulations”… of this… ‘Daily Grind’…? The secret is to ‘Prime Your Pump’ with His Holy Word: as Israel did, in getting the Manna before the Press of the Day, when the Sun Evaporated the Manna! Christ Jesus met with His Father, Daily… each day before His 18+ hour ministry days!

*** (Romans 15:4) For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, so that we through ‘Patience and Comfort’ of the Scriptures might have hope.

*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. [Worshiped]

*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the Word of the LORD.

*** (1Corinthains 4:2) And the rest, it is sought among stewards that one be found “FAITHFUL”.

Many look ‘ONLY’ at the Bible as a book of answers. Occasionally I will see posted on the Internet Social Media, such lists of problems and were to find Biblical Answers. Such thinks are an indication of an Academic approach and NOT on of Biblical Worship. IF You study the Bible for Answers as a Textbook… You then Miss the Worship about which it Brings… when on is… In Tune with His Indwelling Holy Spirit. He is the real teacher of Truth! Those promises by Christ Jesus that the Holy Spirit would lead one into… “All Truth”… is for Our Benefit! Meditating on His Holy Word, during the day, will surely bring about the Peace of God: no matter what the Situation! I have been practicing a Quiet Time, first thing in the day: almost all my Christian Days! When I was working… 8-10-12+ hour days: and when I was traveling domestically & internationally, I always got UP One Hour Early… to meet with Him, in His Holy Word! This simple discipline will bring about a Mind… that can easily “Meditate on His Holy Word.” The Principle is Simple! Remember the last time You were on Vacation? Your mind was Primed: to make the most of your Vacation! That is how it is… with a Daily Quiet Time! You mind starts the day, In His Holy Word: and continues throughout the day!

*** (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]

*** (Matthew 5:30) And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away from you. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into hell."

“One Hand, one Foot & one Eye – 101”…Blog.

*** (Revelation 3:15-16) 'I know your works, that you are Neither Cold nor Hot. I wish you were Cold or Hot.
(Rev 3:16) Since you are LUKEWARM and neither Hot nor Cold, I am going to ‘VOMIT’ you out of my mouth.

*** (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]

I do not watch normal Sports… because of all the “PEDS” [Performance Enhancement Drugs] which athletes take. But every 4 years, I do enjoy the Olympics. These Athletes are the culmination of “Intense Training” and “Self Discipline!” Once I heard a remark by a Long Distance Runner. He said that He never felt like Running. He admitted to throwing himself on the Floor and then running about ‘14+ miles’, before He ‘Felt like Running!’ That is the same Discipline that a Soldier has. He simply fulfills the wants of His Commanding Officer. Do You know that Christ Jesus called “ALL”… those Truly Born Again as… “His Soldiers”…? Surely You remember His Words…? Are You Continually “TRAINING YOURSELF”… with His Holy Word…?

*** (Matthew 9:37-38) Then He said to His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are FEW.
(Matt 9:38) Therefore pray to the Lord of the harvest that He will send out laborers into His harvest.

*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) Join me in “SUFFERING” like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 2:4) No one serving in the military gets mixed up in civilian matters; for his aim is to please his commanding officer.
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one [either] who is an athlete wins a prize; unless he competes according to the rules. [Isaiah 28:13 & Luke 6:46 & James 1:22]

*** (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. [2Corinthians 11:13-14-15 & 2Peter 2:1-2]

*** (1Corinthains 14:32) The spirits of prophets [True or False] are subject to the prophets [True or False],

*** (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.

*** (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.

*** (Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,

Can You find a “Threefold Cord”… in the Bible chapters? May I share some with You…? These next ‘Three Sections’ of Scripture: show such an “Example!” By Application of these Principles, Your Spiritual Growth is “Assured!” Of course, your ‘Heart Obedience’ is the Key! Perhaps “Try a Bible Memorization” application of these next three sections…? Then “Meditate” on them once You have learned them…? You are simply promised “Wisdom & Understanding”… beyond those Others: who do Not do the Same!

*** (Psalms 19:7) The Law of the LORD is perfect, Converting the soul: the Testimony of the LORD is sure, making Wise the simple.
(Psalms 19:8) The Statutes of the LORD are right, Rejoicing the heart: the Commandment of the LORD is pure, Enlightening the eyes.
(Psalms 19:9) The Fear of the LORD [Luke 12:5 & Job 28:28] is Clean, enduring forever: the Judgments of the LORD are True and Righteous Altogether.
(Psalms 19:10) More to be Desired are they than Gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
(Psalms 19:11) Moreover by them is thy servant Warned: and in Keeping of them there is Great reward. [Luke 16:10-to-13]
(Psalms 19:12) Who can understand his errors? Cleanse thou me from Secret Faults.
(Psalms 19:13) Keep back thy servant also from Presumptuous Sins; let them Not have dominion over me: then shall I be Upright, and I shall be Innocent from the great transgression.
(Psalms 19:14) Let the Words of my mouth, and the “Meditation” of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

*** (Psalms 119:97-to-104) MEM. O how love I thy Law [Word]! It is my “Meditation” all the day.
(Psalms 119:98) Thou through thy Commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

(Psalms 119:103) How sweet are thy Words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
(Psalms 119:104) Through thy Precepts I get Understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

*** (2Peter 1:2-to-12) Grace and Peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
(2Pet 1:3) according as His Divine [Holy Spirit] Power has given to us “ALL” things that pertain to Life and Godliness, through the Knowledge of Him Who has called us to Glory and Virtue,
(2Pet 1:4) through which He has given to us Exceedingly Great and Precious Promises, so that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature [Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthians 4:7], having escaped the Corruption that is in the world through Lust.
(2Pet 1:5) But also in this very thing, bringing in all Diligence, filling out your Faith with Virtue, and with virtue, Knowledge;
(2Pet 1:6) and with knowledge Self-Control, and with self-control, Patience, and with patience, Godliness [Holiness 1Peter 1:16],
(2Pet 1:7) and with godliness, Brotherly Kindness, and with brotherly kindness, Love [Agape].
(2Pet 1:8) For IF: these things are in you and Abound, they make you to be Neither Idle nor Unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(2Pet 1:9) For he in whom these things are Not present is Blind and Cannot see afar off and has forgotten that he was purged from his sins in the past.
(2Pet 1:10) Therefore, brothers, Rather be Diligent to make your Calling and Election sure, for IF you do these things, you shall Never fall.
(2Pet 1:11) For so an entrance shall be ministered to you Abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
(2Pet 1:12) Therefore I will Not neglect to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you know them and are established in the present Truth.

“Your SILENT WITNESS for Christ Jesus – 101” …Blog.

“Your SILENT WITNESS for Christ Jesus – 101” …Blog.

IF: It were a Crime to be a “Born Again Christian”… would there be “Enough Evidence”… to Convict You…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?

*** (Hebrews 13:8-9) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today-and forever!
(Heb 13:9) Stop being carried away by all kinds of unusual teachings, for it is good that the heart be strengthened by grace, Not by food laws that have Never helped those who follow them.

*** (1Peter 4:10-to-16) As good managers of God's grace in its various forms, serve one another with the gift each of you has received.
(1Pet 4:11) Whoever speaks must speak God's words. Whoever serves must serve with the strength that God supplies, so that in every way God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. Glory and power belong to him forever and ever! Amen.
(1Pet 4:12) Dear friends, do Not be surprised by the fiery ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
(1Pet 4:13) Instead, because you are participating in the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that you may be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed.
(1Pet 4:14) If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God is resting on you. [Romans 8:9]
(1Pet 4:15) Of course, none of you should suffer for being a murderer, thief, criminal, or troublemaker.
(1Pet 4:16) But IF you suffer for being a Christian, do Not feel ashamed, but glorify God with that name.

Did You know that your “Lifestyle speaks Volumes”… “FOR or AGAINST”… Christ Jesus…? Of course, You thought it was ONLY your Verbal witness for Christ! Some time ago, I attended a Beach Baptism here in Florida. Some of the Pastors do this as a witness to Strangers. Others use a Church Baptismal Pool within the Church. I was Surprised to say the least, when a well-known couple at Church allowed their Teenage daughter to be Baptized. The two piece bathing suit she wore was… ‘Almost Missing’… as there was Not much there! One could see the older & younger men and their various reactions to her outfit. My Question was, “Why would a Christian ‘Mother & Father’ – Even Allow her Daughter to be “Un-dressed” like that”…? Each of us has a witness for Christ Jesus and “What Exactly” we ‘Truly’ believe. I was at a Wal-Mart and had bought some beer. My friend asked me, “I thought You were a Christian”…? “Yes I Am & No”… I do not drink beer: but use it to Cook any Fresh Sausage. Surely You have been to a state fair and had sausage cooked in beer? The World is Always Watching every one of US… ‘Checking us OUT’… to see how Christ is ‘Real or Not Real’… in our Lives…! May I simply suggest that there are Three [3] or more areas, wherein we Have Our Witness… “For or Against”… Christ Jesus…? “Spiritual” – “Social” -&- “Sexual”… are a few I would like to speak about.

*** (1Thessalonians 2:9-to-16) For, brothers, you remember our labor and toil. For laboring night and day in order Not to put a burden on any one of you, we preached the gospel of God to you.
(1Thes 2:10) You and God are witnesses how holily and justly and blamelessly we were to you who believe,
(1Thes 2:11) even as you know how we exhorted and comforted and testified to each one of you, as a father to his children,
(1Thes 2:12) that you should walk worthy of God, Who has called you to His kingdom and glory.
(1Thes 2:13) And for this cause we thank God without ceasing, that when you received the Word of hearing, of God, you welcomed it as the Word of God, Not as a word of men, but as it is, truly the Word of God, which also effectually works in you who believe.

(1Thes 2:14) For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also have suffered these things by your own countrymen, even as they also by the Jews;
(1Thes 2:15) who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, also driving us out and they do not please God and being contrary to all men,
(1Thes 2:16) forbidding us to speak to the nations [Gentiles] that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always; but the wrath has come upon them to the uttermost.

*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding. [James 1:5-to-8 & Job 28:28 & Luke 12:5]

*** (Jeremiah 23:29)
Is not My Word like a FIRE? Says the LORD Jehovah; and like a Hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? [Sword: Hebrews 4:11-12-13]

“WHO – is the Word of God? – 101” …Blog.

  (Proverbs 30:4) Who has gone up to Heaven and has come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know.

*** (1Timothy 6:11-to-14) But you, O man of God, Flee these things And follow after Righteousness, Godliness, Faith, Love, Patience, and Meekness.
(1Tim 6:12) Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you are also called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
(1Tim 6:13) I charge you before God (Who makes all things alive) and in the sight of Christ Jesus (Who witnessed the good confession to Pontius Pilate),
(1Tim 6:14) that you keep the commandment without spot and without blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.

*** (2Timothy 2:2-to-5) And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
(2Tim 2:3) Therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
(2Tim 2:4) No one who wars tangles with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him [Christ] who chose him to be a soldier.
(2Tim 2:5) And also if anyone competes, he is Not crowned unless he competes lawfully.

*** (Hebrews 12:1-to-4) Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
(Heb 12:2) looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God.
(Heb 12:3) For consider Him Who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in your minds.
(Heb 12:4) You have Not yet resisted unto blood [Death], striving against sin.

Covenant Israel, God’s ‘Peculiar & Chosen’ Peoples… were to be God’s Witnesses… to the World. When they Rejected Christ Jesus as their Messiah, this was given over to the NT Born Again Gentiles in Christ. Even so, “Jews for Jesus”… is an active witness by Jews to Jews of their Messiah. When this times of the gentiles be fulfilled [Luke 21:24], Christ Jesus will come back and set up His “Millennial Kingdom” and “RULE with a Rod of Iron”… as Satan will be bound to the Bottomless Pit for those Thousand years! [Revelation 20:1-to-7] Those Believing Jews will be restored to their Witness before the Nations! IF Only these… True NT Believers: Would KNOW their Scripture…? But “MANY” do NOT, Nor do they seem to care about KNOW: Exactly what their Bible have as… “Doctrine & Teaching”…! Why else would there be So Very MUCH False Teaching & Teachers…? Remember the PTL Club and their “Air Conditioned Dog House”…? No wonder they “Failed”….!

*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain because you have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.

What about the “Social Aspect” of your Witness for Christ Jesus and His Kingdom…? Most of whom have LEFT Christ and His Kingdom and have Substituted the Corrupt Political System. Many American Christians [?] simply KNOW More about Politics, than they do the Holy Word of God…! MOST Cannot take their Bibles and Defend their Faith with… “Bible Chapters & Verses”…! But they CAN tell You about the Supposed Constitution and False Conspiracy Teachings. In their minds they have EXCHANGED the Kingdom of God… for Politics..! In either the OT nor the NT… GOD Never used the Political System… to change the Hearts of Men…! Even with all the Divorces & Re-Marriages into Adultery [Mark 10:11-12]… their Lifestyles speak VOLUMS of their witness: Leaving out God’s Holy Word…!

Did “Christ JESUS”… Say… “Some”… “Few”… or… “MANY”… ?
… He Christ, said… “MANY”…!

*** (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 [Jesus] never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!

False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]
… Why does the Church “FORBID” a homosexual to ‘Practice’… and then “ALLOW” Divorced & Remarried Christians [?]: Mark 10:11-12… to continue to Practice their “Christian ADULTERY”…?  What happened to… “Proverbs 28:13” & “Romans 6:1-2”...?

“Remain ‘Unmarried’ or ‘Be Reconciled’ – 101” …Blog

*** (1Corinthains 7:10-11) And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let NOT the wife Depart from her husband:
(1Cor 7:11) But and if she depart; let her remain UNMARRIED; or be RECONCILED to her husband: and let “NOT” the husband ‘Divorce’ his wife.

“What does GOD say about You? – 101” …Blog.

I remember being a Young Man… when I was Not Born Again. I always left a few buttons unbuttoned to show off my Chest. That has since shifted to the Women: who Show MORE as an attraction to Men. Attend Any Church here in America, and You will see… “Christian [?] Women”… and their Daughters, in various stages of “Dress or Undress”…! One could easily say that they are dressed in a… “Sexually Provocateur Manner”…? Yes, in a “Church Worship Service!” And those that “Know Better”… have seemingly Contracted: “Silence about this Issue”…? [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21] I once heard a country preacher say, “IF the barn needs Painting, Do SO…!” Some have taken that to the Uttermost [Gutter-Most!].

*** (1Peter 3:1-to-6) In a similar way, you wives must submit yourselves to your husbands so that, even if some of them refuse to obey the word, they may be won over without a word through your conduct as wives
(1Pet 3:2) when they see your pure and reverent lives.
(1Pet 3:3) Your beauty should Not be an external one, consisting of braided hair or the wearing of gold ornaments and dresses.
(1Pet 3:4) Instead, it should be the inner disposition of the heart, consisting in the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great value in the sight of God.
(1Pet 3:5) After all, this is how holy women who set their hope on God used to make themselves beautiful in the past. They submitted themselves to their husbands,
(1Pet 3:6) just as Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord. You have become her daughters by doing good and by not letting anything terrify you.

*** (Hebrews 3:1) Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.

*** (1Peter 1:16) For it is written, "You must be holy, because I [God] am holy."
(1Pet 1:17) If you call "Father" the one who judges everyone impartially according to what he has done, you must live in the fear of the Lord as long as you are strangers here.
(1Pet 1:18) For you know that it was not with perishable things like silver or gold that you have been ransomed from the worthless way of life handed down to you by your ancestors,
(1Pet 1:19) but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or defect.
(1Pet 1:20) On the one hand, he was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but on the other hand, He was revealed at the end of time for your sake.
