“Saving FAITH is What? – 101” …Blog.
*** (Galatians 3:1-2-3) O foolish Galatians, who bewitched you not to obey the Truth; to Whom before your eyes Jesus Christ was written among you crucified?
(Gal 3:2) This only I would learn from you: Did you receive -> the [Holy] Spirit [Romans 8:9]; by works of the law; -> or by hearing of faith [Acts 15:8-9]?
(Gal 3:3) Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit; -> do you now ‘perfect’ yourself in the flesh? [by keeping the Sabbath, Passover, Feast days, Etc.?]
*** (Romans 10:17) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
*** (Hebrews 4:1-2-3) Therefore, a promise being left to enter into His rest, let us fear lest any of you should seem to come short of it.
(Heb 4:2) For also we have had the gospel preached, as well as them. But the Word preached did NOT profit them, NOT being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
(Heb 4:3) For we who have believed DO enter into the rest, as He said, "I have sworn in My wrath that they should not enter into My rest;" although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
This AM I woke up, thinking about Hebrews 11…! Some believe the TRUTH that God has placed in His Holy Word: The Bible…! Many do NOT…! The real issue is “SAVING FAITH”…! We all use Faith, Daily! You by Faith, turn on your Pone, TV or Internet: expecting it to Work…! You went to Sleep last night… Expecting by Faith… to Wake UP this AM…! Of the 7 Billion people here on Planet Earth: MOST claim FAITH… in a God! The Muslims have Fait, as do the Catholics, Mormons and the Jehovah Witnesses. BUT their Faith surely is NOT: “Saving Faith”… because it is based on LIES…! True Biblical Faith, trusts in the “Complete Authority” of the Holy Word of God… “Alone”…! All those CULTS, have a Faith based on… “Half Truths & Lies”…! Yes, there are MANY, who by Rejecting the TRUTH of the Holy Word of God, The Bible… will find their Eternity… “Wanting”…!
*** (Hebrews 10:29-30-31) How much more severe a punishment do you think that person deserves who tramples on God's Son, treats as common the blood of the covenant by which it was sanctified, and insults the Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know the one who said, "Vengeance belongs to me; I will pay them back," and again, "The Lord will judge his people."
(Heb 10:31) It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
*** (Hebrews 9:27) And as it is appointed to men once to die; but [immediately] after this the judgment, [Luke 16:23]
“The ‘HELL’ about the Lake of Fire – 101” …Blog.
… *** (Revelation 20:15) And if anyone was NOT found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the “Lake of Fire”.
One sure WAY to test the Truth… is to “Identify the Absence of Judgment”..! An incomplete presentation of the True Gospel… will leave OUT… Consequences for Disobedience! This Satanic Movement, often Preaches an… “Easy Believism”… without “Personal Responsibility!” Many will speak about… “Heaven & Rewards & Blessings”… and LEAVE OUT… the Consequences of “Disobedience & Sin”…! It also negates Personal Responsibility to “MISTAKES”… leaving the person without Conviction of SIN/SINS…! Do You understand… “Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 & 1Corinthains 3:13-14-15”…! Do You share it in your Presentation of the Good News & Bad News…? If NOT… Why NOT…?
*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does Not love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes! [Again]
Do you Present an ‘UNBALANCED’ presentation of the GOSPEL...?
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.
FAITH can be divided into Two Groups…! “True Faith & False Faith”…! IF: You cannot Identify These “INDIVIDUALLY”… THEN: how do You know… Which ONE… You Have..? Can You take your Bible and with Chapter & Verse… IDENTIFY those Which YOU Believe In…? If Not, then your Faith is based on “Opinions & Hearsay”…! And Please do NOT give me the name of the “Church Denomination”… You Attend…! MANY of the Pseudo Christian Denominations do NOT hold to the Complete Authority of the Holy Word of God..! The simply place their Denominational Teachings above those of the Scriptures..! Christ Jesus will give us “Rewards” and “Loss of Rewards’…. All based on the TRUTH found in His Holy Word…!

*** (Proverbs 30:6) Do not add to His Words, lest He reprove you and you be found a LIAR.
*** (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.
*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and does Not receive My Words; has One who judges him; the Word that I [Jesus] have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.
“Sola Scriptura – ONLY the Scripture – 101” …Blog.
*** (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.

*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart." [Romans 8:9]
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit, Whom those who were believing in him were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was Not yet present, because Jesus had Not yet been glorified. [Acts 2:1-5]
*** (2Corinthains 13:5) examine yourselves; whether you are in the faith; prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you [Romans 8:9]; unless you are Reprobates?
*** (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.
*** (Jude 1:19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual: having NOT the [Holy] Spirit.

· Saving FAITH – is Chastening.
*** (Hebrews 12:6-7) for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and He scourges every son whom He receives." [John 15:1-2-3]
(Heb 12:7) If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons, for what son is he Whom
