“Six Days BEFORE – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 12:1) Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was (who had died, whom He raised from the dead).
*** (Zechariah 9:9) Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, your King comes to you. He is righteous and victorious, meek and riding on an ass, even on a colt, the son of an ass.
*** (Luke 24:44-to-49) And He said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me.
(Luke 24:45) And He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He said to them, So it is written, and so it behoved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, [Psalms 16:10]
(Luke 24:47) and that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are witnesses of these things.
(Luke 24:49) And behold, I send the ‘promise’ [Holy Spirit] of My Father on you. But you sit in the city of Jerusalem until you are clothed with power from on high. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 2:1-to-5]
This week I was having my Daily Quiet Time… in the Holy Word of God: Where I meet with HIM…! While reading in John 12, I realized that Christ Jesus’s ministry of Three  years, would be culminating with His “Crucifixion & Resurrection”… from the dead. And Yes, he had Already, had “TWO previous Passover celebrations”, with His disciples: but this One would be “Very Different!” This ‘ONE’ the Last, would be “Quite Different”, because it was the “Last Passover”. Christ Jesus Himself… would in days become the… “Passover Lamb of God”…! He would atone for the ‘Sins of Mankind’, One Sacrifice for All SIN/SINS…!
*** (John 1:29) The next day John [the Baptist] sees Jesus coming to him and says, Behold the Lamb of God :Who takes away the sin of the world!
*** (1Corinthians 5:7) Therefore purge out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.
*** (Hebrews 7:24-to-28) but He [Jesus], because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.
(Heb 7:25) Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost those who come unto God by Him, since He ever lives to make intercession for them.
(Heb 7:26) For such a high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners and made higher than the heavens,
(Heb 7:27) who does not need, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice daily, first for his own sins and then for the people's sins. For He did this once for all, when He offered up Himself.
(Heb 7:28) For the Law appoints men high priests who have infirmity, but the word of the swearing of an oath, after the Law, has consecrated the Son forever, having been perfected.
*** (Hebrews 10:9-10-11) then He [Jesus] said, "Lo, I come to do Your will, O God." He takes away the first so that He may establish the second.
(Heb 10:10) By this will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
(Heb 10:11) And indeed every priest stands daily ministering and offering often the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. [Leviticus Sacrificial System]
*** (Hebrews 9:14) how much more will the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God; cleanse our consciences from dead works so that we may serve the “Living God!”
*** (John 19:28) After this, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, Jesus said, I thirst.
(John 19:29) Then a vessel full of vinegar was set. And they filled a sponge with sour wine and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
(John 19:30) Then when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, It is finished! And He bowed His head and gave up the spirit.
“Understanding ‘Forgiveness’ – 101” …Blog. [1/4]
Meeting with Christ Jesus DAILY… in His Holy Word… is “Life Itself”…! It is much more than just an ‘academic exercise & discipline’. I have been Born Again for “30+ years”…. Yet the “Truth & Freshness”… is there each & every time I go to Him. Perhaps that is WHY…. I often refer to the… “Living Holy Word of God”…! Those who are Truly His… find this Truth, each & every time, they… ‘Seek Him’…! I find that it is Not just a textbook, but a Revelation of the “Living Christ Jesus”… the Passover Lamb of God”… the LORD of Lords & the KING of Kings..!
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.
“Get Understanding! – 101” …Blog.
*** (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.
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things ‘Hard’ to be understood, = which the ‘Unlearned’ and ‘Unstable’ = “Pervert”; = as also they do the rest of the = “SCRIPTURES”; = to their own destruction. [1Corinthains 16:22]
*** (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.
*** (Isaiah 40:22-to-25) It is He WHO sits on the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers; WHO stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in;
(Isa 40:23) WHO brings the rulers to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth as vanity.
(Isa 40:24) Yes, they shall not be planted; yes, they shall not be sown. Yes, their stump shall not take root in the earth. And He shall also blow on them, and they shall wither, and the tempest shall take them away like stubble.
(Isa 40:25) To WHOM then will you compare Me, or am I equaled? Says the Holy One. [Isaiah 44:6 – “NONE”]
QUESTION: Do You meet with Him… “Daily”… in His Holy Word…? Most who call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus… “Do NOT”…! They will Often play Pseudo Christian music but seldom does the… “SAINT in Christ”…. Meet with His or Her… “LORD”…! Somehow they have replaced that ‘Daily Meeting’…. With “Sunday Church & Wednesday prayer meetings”. Surely You EAT Physical food, at least  Three time a Day or ore…? But How do You feed your… Soul with the “Bread of LIFE”…? Where are those… “Rivers of Living Waters”…. Flowing from your Soul”…? [John 7:38-39] No, I do NOT condemn nor do I excuse or accuse You: but simply all You to… “Examine Yourself”[2Corinthains 13:5] …? As members of “His Body”, the “Church”, the “Bride of Christ”…. We are to have the ‘Same Agendas’…?Just perhaps that is WHY… 5% are doing 96% of the Gospel work…? [John 17:17-18-19]
*** (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. [2Timothy 2:15-16]
*** (1Samuel 2:30) And Jehovah, the God of Israel says, I said indeed, Your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever. = But now Jehovah the LORD says, = Be it far from Me! = For those who honor Me [God] I will honor, = and those that think little of Me shall be lightly regarded.
*** (2Samuel 24:24) And the king said to Araunah, No, but I will surely buy from you at a price. = And I will not offer burnt offerings = to Jehovah my God = of that which costs me nothing. = And David bought the threshing-floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
*** (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.

*** (Matthew 11:27-to-30) All things are delivered to Me by My Father. And no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son will reveal Him.
(Matt 11:28) Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
(Matt 11:29) Take My yoke on you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.
(Matt 11:30) For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
Do You occasionally MISS a morning meet with Christ…? Occasionally, I do, but that does not stop me from an ‘Afternoon or Evening’ meet with Christ Jesus…! Once I had a ‘Sister in Christ’ say to me, “I am Not a Morning Person”…! I asked her, are You a ‘Morning Person’… when You are on “Vacation”…? Or on that Cruise Ship TRIP that You took…? Did You have the tendency to… Sleep IN…. or did You want to fill your Day…? Are You… “Retired”…? We can all find Excuses… WHY we did NOT discipline ourselves… “To Do SO…! Perhaps You substituted your… “Quiet Time”…. With Prayer…? I have people tell me that Prayer is most important. I simply ASK… “More Important than… “Hearing HIM”…? His Indwelling Holy Spirit…. will cause His Holy Word… “To Speak to our Hearts, Minds & Soul”…!
Are You willing to Allow HIM… “To Speak FIRST…. Before You speak to HIM… in Prayer”…?

*** (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]
*** (Jeremiah 12:5) If you have run with footmen, and they wore you out, then how can you compete with horses? And if you feel secure in the land of peace; then how will you do in the swelling [overflow] of the Jordan?
