“Golden Nuggets from Scripture – 101” …Blog.
The picture for this Blog.... is a 20 pound GOLD Nugget...!
*** (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.
*** (Philippians 3:13-14-15) My brothers, I do not count myself to have taken possession, but one thing I do, forgetting the things behind and reaching forward to the things before,
(Philip 3:14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
(Philip 3:15) Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, be of this mind. And if in anything you are otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this to you.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
Do You, read through your Bible…. “Yearly?” I have been Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God for some 35+ years. I did Not come to Christ in my youth, but in my early 30’s. I have made it a Practice to meet with Christ Jesus, the Living Holy Word of God…. in the Bible each morning before work. Yes, even when I worked… 8-10-12+… hour days. Even when I traveled ‘domestically & internationally’, I got up an hour early [Mark 1:35] to do this. God has given me the self-discipline [1Corinthians 9:27] with His Grace, Mercy & Love… to do this. Some of the good study Bibles, have such a reading plan included in their notes. I developed my own, alternating between the OT & NT…. Being led by the Lord [Romans 8:14], into specific books for my studies. If You do not have such a Discipline, my I simply suggest that You get started?
*** (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.

*** (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.
Do You have some favorite “Life Verses”…? These are simply special Bible verses, shown You by the Holy Spirit during your Study of His Holy Word. I have many, but my most favorite ones are… “Psalms 119:97-to-104 & Psalms 19:7-to-14”…! I call these my Golden Nuggets. I addition, I also have ‘Favorite Chapters’. These I refer to as, “Life Lesion’s”…! There are also Books, [Hebrews] of which I am very fond, having learned about Christ and His Finished work of Redemption of mankind: especially Me the sinner needing a Savior…! Did You know About… Acts 7:1-to-60 [All]…! Why is this Book so important…? Have You ever heard of a… “Dying Declaration”…? In the legal sense, Two or more witnesses are Not needed: when Death is Emanate! Such was this case as Stephan, was about to be Martyred [Stoned to Death] for His faith in Christ Jesus. What about You, do You have some Favorites that You possibly have Memorized…? Did You realize that… Acts 17… is a Compilation of the History of Israel…?
*** (Hebrews 10:28-to-31) He who despised Moses' Law died without mercy on the word of two or three witnesses.
(Heb 10:29) Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy of punishment, the one who has trampled the Son of God, and who has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know Him who has said, "Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, says the Lord." And again, "The Lord shall judge His people."
(Heb 10:31) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
One of my Favorite OT chapters… [1Kings 13:All]…! When GOD tells You to do something OBEY HIM... no matter WHAT… another… “SUPPOSED believer”… Tells YOU..!
The ‘Man’ of GOD – 101”…Blog. [1Kings 13:All]
*** (Acts 5:29) And Peter and the apostles answered and said; We ought to OBEY God rather than men.
Recently someone asked me about… “Psalms 52”…? Did You NOTICE: that the some of the Psalms, depending on your Bible translation have the ‘header notes’ copied from the Hebrew Text…? Here is an Example…! These will aid in your study of the Psalms… and give a reference to where other Bible text speaks as to this Topic. I use a Bible Study tool, a “Free Electronic Bible program, which I have on my Computer. I use it to do ‘Word Studies’; to find out the OT Hebrew & NT Greek specific word meanings. You may also use it, for tracing a particular word, throughout the Scriptures! One example is “Water”. It always seeks its… ‘’Lowest Level’. It has no power of itself, to raise itself up. Even an Ice Burg…. Has 90&% of its mass, when floating…. ‘Below the surface of the water’. The air trapped in the ICE is what causes it to float. Simply by remembering where a particular topic was in which book, can the key to Psalms 52…. OR… by doing a word study of…. “Deog, the Edomite”…!
*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me: Draw [Compel] him: and I [Jesus] will raise him up at the last day.
E-Sword Bible Program
*** (Psalms 52:1) To the Chief Musician. A contemplation. A Psalm of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said to him, David has come to the house of Ahimelech.
Why do you boast yourself in evil, O mighty man? The mercy of God endures forever.
*** (1Samuel 22:14-to-20) And Ahimelech answered the king and said, And who is so faithful among all your servants as David, who is the king's son-in-law, and who goes at your bidding, and who is honorable in your house?
(1Sam 22:15) Have I today begun to ask of God for him? Be it far from me. Do not let the king charge a thing to his servant, nor to all the house of my father. For your servant knew nothing of all this, more or less.
(1Sam 22:16) And the king said, Ahimelech, you shall surely die, you and all your father's house.
(1Sam 22:17) And the king said to the guard that stood around him, Turn and kill the priests of Jehovah, because their hand also is with David, and because they knew when he fled, and did not reveal it to me. But the servants of the king would NOT put forth their hand to fall on the priests of Jehovah.
(1Sam 22:18) And the king said to Doeg, You turn and fall on the priests. And Doeg the Edomite turned and fell on the priests. And on that day he killed eighty-five persons who wore a linen ephod.
(1Sam 22:19) And he struck Nob, the city of the priests, with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and babes, and oxen, and asses, and sheep, with the edge of the sword.
(1Sam 22:20) And one of the sons of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped and fled after David.
In King Saul in his relentless pursuit of David…. HE… Did NOT even fear to KILL the Priests of he Lord…! Deog the Edomite… did Not fear God… but sot favor from King Saul. Did You notice [1Sam 22:17] … But the servants of the king would NOT put forth their hand to fall on the priests of Jehovah.
Such Contiguous TRUTH is simply revealed by the Holy Spirit… as You make the Holy Word of God…. part of your “Conscious Thinking & Mediation… of Scripture…!

*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And Think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation; as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you; according to the wisdom given to him.

Most Christians do NOT know their Scriptures….! Some have Only a Cursory knowledge of some of the Topics…! FEW… can take their Bibles and DEFEND their Faith with…. Bible Chapters & Verses…! Say it isn’t SO…? MOST know more about… “Politics and the Constitution”…! WHY is that…? “American Christianity”…. Is NOT… “Biblical Faith”…! Those Israel Covenant Promises… are NOT for the NT Believer..! Many… ‘Falsely Claim’ they are…. BUT omit those…. “Cursing’s”…. Promised to Israel for their Disobedience…! Please read this TEXT…?

*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are ‘Not’ of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘Does NOT’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
*** (Ephesians 1:13-14) in Whom also you, Hearing the Word of Truth, the gospel of our salvation, in Whom also believing, you were Sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,
(Eph 1:14) Who is the earnest of our inheritance, to the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. [John 7:38-39]
*** (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!
