“Worship the Lord – 101” …Blog.
*** (Psalms 96:9) O worship Jehovah in the beauty of holiness; fear before Him, all the earth.
*** (1Peter 1:13-to-23) Therefore girding up the loins of your mind, being sober, perfectly hope for the grace being brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
(1Pe 1:14) as obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance,
(1Pe 1:15) but according to the Holy One who has called you, you also become holy in all conduct,
(1Pe 1:16) because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy."
(1Pe 1:17) And if you call on the Father, who without respect of persons judges according to the work of each one, pass the time of your earthly residence in fear,
(1Pe 1:18) knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, silver or gold, from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers,
(1Pe 1:19) but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot;
(1Pe 1:20) indeed having been foreknown before the foundation of the world, but revealed in the last times for you,
(1Pe 1:21) those believing in God through Him, He who raised Him up from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope might be in God.
(1Pe 1:22) Purifying your souls in the obedience of the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers, love one another fervently out of a pure heart,
(1Pe 1:23) having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the living Word of God, and abiding forever.

(Psa 29:3) The voice of Jehovah is on the waters; the God of glory thunders; Jehovah is above many waters.
(Psa 29:4) The voice of Jehovah is in power, the voice of Jehovah is in majesty.
(Psa 29:5) The voice of Jehovah breaks the cedars; yea, Jehovah breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
(Psa 29:6) He also makes them to skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
(Psa 29:7) The voice of Jehovah goes through flames of fire.
(Psa 29:8) The voice of Jehovah shakes the wilderness; Jehovah shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
(Psa 29:9) The voice of Jehovah causes the does to calve, and uncovers the forests; and in His temple all of it is saying, Glory!
(Psa 29:10) Jehovah sits on the flood; yea, Jehovah sits as King forever.
(Psa 29:11) Jehovah will give strength to His people; Jehovah will bless His people with peace.

Each morning, I have a Quiet time with my Lord…. Meeting Him, in His Holy Word! I have had this Practice for some 30+ years. Even when I was working….. 8-10-12 hour days! Even when I was traveling for work: ‘domestically and internationally’. I would get up an hour early… [1Corinthians 9:27]… And developed this “Spiritual Discipline.” His indwelling Holy Spirit… [Romans 8:9 & Ephesians 1:13-14]… will do the same for You! Soon your Life will take on a Spiritual Discipline… that will cause You to… “Grow Spiritually!” The Holy Spirit will open to You the Truth of GOD…. Found in His Holy Word… [Psalms 119:97-to-104]. The choice is Yours!
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being “Doers” of the Word, and “NOT” merely hearers, who ‘Deceive’ themselves. [1Corinthains 11:30]
*** (1Corinthains 4:2) And the rest, it is sought among stewards that one be found FAITHFUL.
“Daily: Spiritual ‘Decisions’ – 101”…Blog.
Have You ever understood…. Psalms 96:9… and what it means…. “To Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness”…?
I have been pouring Over the Scriptures: comparing Scripture with Scripture…. “Isaiah 28:13 & Acts 17:11”….? What does it mean to Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness…? Have You ever thought about IT…? If You have attended other Churches, many of them, have different… “Methodologies & definitions” of Worship. The Scripture is ‘Clear about Holiness’, but different people have Very Different Definitions’ of… “Holiness”…! Take a few moments and think about what the Bible says about… “Holiness”…? If You are a student of His Holy Word…. You might say, ‘Simply Read Leviticus!’ But it is the Complete Holy Word of God, and NOT one book, that speaks about Holiness!
“The NT Born Again & Holiness – 101” …Blog.
*** (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].
*** (John 12:48) He who ‘Rejects’ Me [Christ Jesus]; and does ‘Not’ receive My Words; has One who judges him; the WORD -> that I have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.
*** (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God; and keep His commandments. For this is the whole duty of man.
(Eccl 12:14) For God shall bring every work into judgment; with ‘every’ secret thing; ‘whether’ it is Good; or ‘whether’ Evil.
*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so Many of you [Christians] are WEAK; and SICK; and a Considerable number are DYING.
*** (1Corinthains 3:13-14-15) each one's work shall be revealed. For the Day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is.
(1Co 3:14) If anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.
(1Co 3:15) If anyone's work shall be burned up, he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved, yet so as by fire.
Lifting up Holy Hands – 101” …Blog.
*** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) Of course, we are living in the flesh, but we do not fight in a fleshly way.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the flesh. Instead, they have the power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
(2Cor 10:5) and every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God; taking every thought captive in order to Obey Christ.
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready to punish every act of Disobedience [1Jn 1:5-to-10 & Proverbs 28:13] when your obedience is complete.
*** (Galatians 5:16-17-18) I say, then, Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.
(Gal 5:17) For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh. And these are contrary to one another; lest whatever you may will, these things you do.
(Gal 5:18) But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.
*** (Romans 7:18-to-25) For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwells no good thing. For to will is present with me, but how to perform that which is good I do not find.
(Rom 7:19) For I do not do the good that I desire; but the evil which I do not will, that I do.
(Rom 7:20) But if I do what I do not desire, it is no more I working it out, but sin dwelling in me.
(Rom 7:21) I find then a law: when I will to do the right, evil is present with me.
(Rom 7:22) For I delight in the Law of God according to the inward man;
(Rom 7:23) but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin being in my members.
(Rom 7:24) O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
(Rom 7:25) I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then with the mind I myself serve the Law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.
*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.
“Holiness”, is Not automatically within our Human Spirits! We have a Free Will and Choose to make Choices about… “What we Allow”… into our… “Minds & Hearts”…! Remember what Christ Jesus said about Looking with Lust…? [Matthew 5:27-28] Holiness is simply a work of Obedience by the Holy Spirit…. “2Corinthians 10:3-to-6”…. Within our Hearts & Minds…! As I study this Topic, I find that this blog is ONLY a beginning of this Topic! Remember Spiritual Growth is an on-going… ‘Practice & Discipline’…! One does NOT wake up on day and say, “I am Holy and understand this Topic!” Spiritual growth is an On-Going work of the Indwelling Holy Spirit…. Of those “Truly Born Again”…!
*** (Romans 7:5-to-10) For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sin worked in our members through the law to bring forth fruit to death.
(Rom 7:6) But now we having been set free from the Law, having died to that in which we were held, so that we serve in newness of spirit and not in oldness of the letter.
(Rom 7:7) What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Let it not be said! But I did not know sin except through the law. For also I did not know lust except the law said, You shall not Lust (Covet). [Exodus 20:17]
(Rom 7:8) But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, worked in me all kinds of lust. For apart from law sin was dead.
(Rom 7:9) For I was alive without the law once. But when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.
(Rom 7:10) And the commandment, which was to life, was found to be death to me.
*** (1Jn 1:3-to-10) that which we have seen and heard we declare unto you, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
(1Jn 1:4) And we write these things to you so that your joy may be full.
(1Jn 1:5) And this is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.
(1Jn 1:6) If we say that we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the Truth.
(1Jn 1:7) But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
(1Jn 1:8) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the Truth is not in us.
(1Jn 1:9) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1Jn 1:10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us.
… MOST do Not realize that it was: ‘NOT’… the Roman soldiers –> that nailed Christ Jesus to the Cross…! It was the “SINS” of… “ME, My Sins”… that Nailed ‘HIM’ to that Cross…! True Biblical Confession happens ‘Only’ –> when we are willing to take that… “Personal Responsibility” of: –> “My Sins Nailed ‘HIM’ [Christ Jesus]:–> there to that Cross”…!
“What is ‘Confession’ of SIN – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Jn 1:9-10) If we make it our habit to confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us those sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. [Proverbs 28:13 & Romans 6:1-2]
(1Jn 1:10) If we say that we have never sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is ‘NOT’ in us.
(1Jn 1:10) If we say that we have never sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is ‘NOT’ in us.
