“Your ‘Status Quo’ for 2015? – 101” …Blog.
Definition: The Existing State of Affairs,
*** *** (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]
Have You set any Goals for “2015”….? What About Any: Temporal, Spiritual, Financial, Travel, Mental, Physical… or will You this year seek to be content with the Status Quo in your life…? Or will You allow “ENTROPY”… to rule again this year! May I simply ask… “What will You do Different this Year”…? Many make some… “New Year’s Resolutions”… and within a Month: revert to “Last Year’s Patterns” of behavior! Gym memberships Surge in January…. But Americans are… ‘Largely Overweight!’ Without New Goals & New Resolves’…. One simply REPEATS the Previous Status Quo…! Many “Diet” as a way of Change… but end up “Not Losing Any Weight”…! “Self-Discipline” is sorely Lacking in our American Society! The saying is as True today as it ever was… “Aim High, Shoot High, Aim Low, Shoot Low”…! Perhaps ask Yourself, “Are You Happy with the ‘You’…. That You Inhabit…? If You are NOT: what then are You Doing… by the Grace of God… in your Life…?

(Pro 6:7) who, having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
(Pro 6:8) provides her food in the summer and gathers her food in the harvest.
(Pro 6:9) How long will you sleep, O sluggard? When will you arise out of your sleep?
(Pro 6:10) A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to lie down;
(Pro 6:11) so shall your poverty come as one who travels, and your need like an armed man.
Who Really: is that Person “You”… see in the Mirror…? When You are Not satisfied with the Outside: do You not do something to change your Appearance….? Why do You think the ‘Cosmetics Industry’, is so “Finically Successful”…? But what about the… “Inside You”…? ‘Others’ do Not readily know what is going on, except by your… “Communication or Behavioral Change!” Do You remember what Abraham Lincoln said…? “You can fool some of the People some of the time: Most of the People Most of the Time… But You Cannot fool… All the People, All the Time”…! The Person we fool the Most: is ‘Ourselves’…! We seek the Approval of Friends, Acquaintances & Family…. and Forget about God… “Who sees our Hearts”…! Do You call yourself…. “His Child”… and Him your Father…? Do Your “Actions” display that Relationship…? Do You meet with Him, “Daily”… in His Holy Word…? Please answer ‘Out Loud’… “Yes or NO”…?
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to You -> when “ALL” men shall speak well of You! For so their fathers did to the False Prophets.
*** (1Corinthains 9:16) For though I preach the gospel, no glory is to me. For necessity is laid on me; yea: woe is to me -> if I do NOT preach the gospel!

*** (John 17:17-18-19) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
(John 17:18) As You [God] have sent Me [Jesus] into the world; even so I have sent ‘them’ into the world.
(John 17:19) And I [Jesus] sanctify Myself for their sakes; so that they ‘also’ might be sanctified in Truth.
*** (Galatians 4:16) So then did I become your enemy; speaking to you the “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.

*** (Mark 12:29-30) And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord; [1Timothy 2:5]
(Mark 12:30) and you shall love the Lord your God with all your HEART, and with all your SOUL, and with all your MIND, and with all your STRENGTH." This is the first commandment.
*** (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.
(Matt 21:29) He answered and said, I will Not. But afterwards he repented and went.
(Matt 21:30) And he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir; and did Not go.
(Matt 21:31) 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.
(Matt 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.
May I simply share some “Facts”…? One cannot lose weight or get in shape BY: simply watching “Exercise Videos!” Reading the Biographies of Successful People… does ‘Not’ make one “Successful”…! Listening to Foreign Language CD’S… does Not make one ‘Bi-Lingual’…! The Missing Link is of course… “Actions”…! Christians [?] who Claim… “Son ship”…. Does Not make it ‘So’…! Simply Claiming to be a Child of God…. Does Not make it So! MOST cannot take their Bible and DEFEND: what they Believe with…. “Bible Chapters & Verses”…! Can You…?
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 never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working lawlessness! [James 1:22 & Luke 6:46]

*** (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.

… *** (John 5:39-40) You search the Scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life. And they are the ones witnessing of Me [Jesus],

Occasionally someone will say to Me…. Your Blogs are “Un-Loving and Critical”…! I simply ask them, “What did I say that was Critical that was NOT: of the Holy Word of God”…? They will then Refuse to give an answer! Most who do NOT know the Scriptures… do Not know that Christ Jesus spoke More about ‘Hell & Damnation’…. Then about ‘Heaven & Rewards!’ Those who are “Growing Spiritually” will come to Realize… That there is Much More Wrong with the “Positive Thinking” about the Gospel! FYI…. Most do Not Preach “REPENTANCE” as Commanded by Christ…! “Luke 24:44to-48”… & … “Acts 17:30-31”… & … “2Peter 3:9”… &… “1Timothy 2:4”…! Too many Pseudo Christians [?] are fearful of Offending the Sinner…! They will glibly speak about heaven… and then Leave OUT: the Damnation of the Lake of Fire…. For ALL…. Who REJECT: The Love, Mercy & Grace of God…! Why do You OMIT the Complete Truth of the Gospel…!
*** (2Corinthians 11:4) For if someone comes along and preaches ANOTHER Jesus than the one we preached, or should you receive a DIFFERENT spirit from the one you received or a DIFFERENT gospel from the one you accepted; you are All Too willing to Listen. [Galatians 1:8-9]
