“Isn’t it about ‘Time’ – 101”

“Isn’t it about ‘Time’ – 101”

Perhaps now is ‘The Time’… to ask you? In these blogs… I do not personally… “Accuse nor Approve”… your actions or/and practices of life preferences. I am simply presenting what I read as… “The Truth”… in the Word of God, ‘The Bible’. If you are convicted… by something I say… it is ‘not me’ that is convicting you. It is the Holy Spirit of God! I only speak what I have been led to speak. As a human being I ‘do not’ have that power… to convict your thoughts or your heart.

(John 16:7-to-11) But = I [Jesus] = tell you = The Truth, = it is expedient for you = that I go away; = for if I do not go away, = the Comforter [Holy Spirit] = will not come to you. = But if I depart, = I will send Him = to you.
(John 16:8) And when = that One comes, = He will convict the world = concerning sin, = and = concerning righteousness, = and = concerning judgment.
(John 16:9) Concerning sin, = because they do not believe = on Me;
(John 16:10) Concerning righteousness, = because = I go to My Father = and = you see Me no more;
(John 16:11) Concerning judgment, = because = the ruler [Satan] = of this world = is judged.

This is a ‘Special Blog’… just for “Christians!” I have been seeing a lot of… ‘On Line’… sites that put forth some ‘teaching & preaching’. Some seem to have a number of subscribers and others very few. Most take what is taught… is done so with the same… ‘Implied Authority’ of the Bible. And yet the readers… “Never” say anything… when error is taught. They just keep reading and listening.

(Proverbs 9:9) Give = to a wise one, = and = he will be still wiser; = teach a just one, = and = he will increase in learning.

Before the advent… of modern production of baby food… often times the mother or grandmother would… ‘Pre-Chew’… the solid food for the baby. This practice is still done in many ‘third world countries.’ Pre-processed baby and toddler foodstuffs are a big business here in America some of which is exported overseas.

Not unlike that… today many Christians do not… ‘Read & Study’… their ‘Bibles’ for themselves. Some attend mega churches where there is a ‘multimedia presentation’ with videos and CD’s available to ‘take home.’ Much of it… is never challenged by the attendees. Much of it is… “Entertainment”… and not… “True Worship”.

After attending several… of those types of churches I felt like I had been to a “Professional Football Game”. The staging and presentations were done so professional that the attendees… did not blink an eye… when ‘Error’ was taught. I am sorry to say that most have expected a… ‘Hollywood Type’… presentations and were not disappointed.

(Luke 4:25-to-30) In Truth = I [Jesus] = tell you = that there were many widows = in Israel = in Elijah's time, = when the heaven was closed = for three years and six months = and there was a severe famine = everywhere in the land.
(Luke 4:26) Yet Elijah = wasn't sent to a single one of them = except to a widow = at Zarephath = in Sidon.
(Luke 4:27) There were also = many lepers in Israel = in the Prophet Elisha's time, = yet not one of them = was cleansed = except Naaman = the Syrian."
(Luke 4:28) All the people = in the synagogue = became furious = when they heard = this.
(Luke 4:29) They got up, = forced Jesus = out of the city, = and = led Him = to the edge of the hill = on which their city was built, = intending to = throw Him = off of it.
(Luke 4:30) But = He = walked right through = the middle of them = and = went away.

This morning I… was having my “Quiet Time”… with Christ Jesus in His Word, the Bible. As I was reading, through the Gospel of Luke… I read the above verses. The religious of His day became ‘incensed’ at Him… for simply speaking “The Truth”… of the Scriptures they knew and believed. Yet when confronted with… “The Truth”… they were ready to… kill Him.

Why does “The Truth”… affect the religious more than the non-religious? The sinners in the days of Christ Jesus… readily came and heard Him and what He had to say. That made the ‘religious’ not only jealous but ‘angry’. “The Truth”… will either turn you to ‘God’… or… will ‘harden your heart’… against Him and His Word, The Bible.

Just how long… have you been saying that ‘You’… know Christ Jesus? Please answer yourself and not me… for ‘your’… point of reference? It has been… “___-years!”… [Please fill in the blank]. This is for you to know so that you may have a starting point. If you will… simply continue to read this… I will explain.

(Luke 13:6-to-9) Then = Jesus = told them this parable: = "A man had a fig tree = that had been planted = in his vineyard. = He went = to look for fruit on it = but didn't find any.
(Luke 13:7) So he said = to the gardener, = 'Look here! = For three years = I have been coming = to look for fruit = on this tree = but haven't = found any. = Cut it down! = Why should it waste the soil?'
(Luke 13:8) But the gardener replied, = 'Sir, leave it alone = for one more year, = until I dig around it = and fertilize it.
(Luke 13:9) Maybe = next year = it'll bear fruit. = If not, = then cut it down.'"

If you have been… a Born Again Christian… for over ‘Four Years’… and do not know the Word of God… something is wrong! Would you expect a… ‘Four year old child’… to still be drinking milk from a… ‘baby bottle?’ Of course not! By that time a child should be feeding themselves. So to with the… ‘Child of God!’ You should be… ‘Feeding yourself’… on God’s Word… “Daily!”

(2Corinthians 4:16) For this cause = we do not faint; = but = though our = outward man = perishes, = yet = the inward man = is being renewed = day by day.

You would not… think of missing a meal, would You? Why then would you miss a… ‘Spiritual Meal of the Word of God’… to feed the inward you? How about desert or even a bowl of ice cream? So too we shouldn’t miss the… desert of the Word of God! Again I am not… approving nor condemning… your past actions. You may begin again… even today, yes even right now!

(Mark 1:35) In the morning, = while it was still very dark, = Jesus = got up = and = went to a deserted place = and = prayed there.

This is a ‘word picture’… of True Worship of God His Father. He took time before His day started and met with God. He likely had 16-plus hour days of ministry and preaching the Kingdom of God. His example should be our example! The children of Israel had to get up early before light… to collect the Manna… that God had provided for them in the wilderness. IF they waited till the sun came up… it evaporated. See Exodus chapter 16.

(John 6:35) Jesus = said to them, = "I am = the bread of life. = The one = who comes to Me = will never become hungry, = and = the one who believes = in Me = will never become thirsty.

It is often said… “Breakfast is the most important meal of the Day!” Christ Jesus the God Man… thought it important to meet with His Father! If God is your Father… isn’t it important that you… meet with Him… “First”… before you start your day? “Well you know… I am not a morning person!” I couldn’t tell you how many times I have heard that… “Excuse!” Yet I have never heard anyone say that… while on… ‘Vacation!’

Remember when… I asked you… how long had you known “Christ Jesus?” I did this ‘to preempt’ your thinking for theses verses. If you have been a Christian for over ‘4-years’ and cannot fulfill this mandate… perhaps it is time to… start again?

(Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have = much to say = about this, = but it is difficult = to explain = because = you = have become too lazy = to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, = though by now = you = should be teachers, = you = still need = someone to teach you = the basic truths = of God's word. = You have become people = who need milk = instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone = who lives on milk = is still a baby = and = is inexperienced = in the message = of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But = solid food = is for = mature people, = whose minds = are trained by practice = to distinguish = good = from evil.

“Grapes – 101”

“Grapes – 101”

Yesterday I went… to Wal-Mart shopping and looking for Grapes. I really enjoy grapes as that is a ‘Fruit’… that comes in so very many ‘Flavors & Types’. As our world is becoming a Global Community, Grapes are available year around. One can even have dried grapes which are called Raisins. I particularly do not care for them as I prefer… the fresh fruit.

(Son 2:15) Take us = the foxes, = the little foxes = that spoil = the vines; = for our vines = have = tender grapes.

Do you know… what this Bible Verse is about? How can foxes spoil grape vines? Throughout the Bible there are… ‘Word Pictures’… as God communicated with His People through life lessons in an Agrarian society. That is in a ‘Produce’ community and not in a ‘Manufacturing’ or ‘Service’ industries, such as we have today. First… what are the “Grapes?”

(Isaiah 5:1-to-7) Now I will sing to my Beloved = a song of my Beloved = concerning = His vineyard. = My Beloved has a vineyard = in a very fruitful hill.
(Isa 5:2) And He fenced it, = and gathered out the stones of it, = and planted it = with choice vines, = and built a tower in its midst, = and hewed out a wine vat in it; = and He = looked for it to produce grapes. = And it produced wild grapes.
(Isa 5:3) And now, = O people of Jerusalem, = and men of Judah, = please judge = between Me = and My vineyard.
(Isa 5:4) What more could have been done to my vineyard = that I have not done in it? = Who knows? = I looked for it to yield grapes, = but it yielded = rotten grapes.
(Isa 5:5) And now I will tell you what I will do to My vineyard; I will take away its hedge, and it shall be eaten up; and break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down;
(Isa 5:6) and I will lay it waste; = it shall not be pruned nor dug; = but briers and thorns shall come up. = And I will command the clouds = that they rain no rain on it.
(Isa 5:7) For the vineyard = of Jehovah of Hosts = is the house of Israel, = and the men of Judah = His pleasant plant; = and He = looked for justice, = but behold = bloody iniquity; = for righteousness, = but behold a cry!

God’s Chosen People… Israel are His Chosen Vine. He gave them “His Law, Statutes, Ordinances” and All the instruction they needed to be His People. And yet they rebelled against Him – God… even when He sent prophets to warn them of the impending Disasters. Chastening is what “God” promised them… “Blessing for doing Good” and “Cursing for doing Evil!”

In the New Testament… Christ Jesus referred to Himself as the Vine and God as the Vinedresser. Christ Jesus is of the, ‘Human Lineage of David’ and… the “Promised ONE”… on the Throne of David… “The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!” He will rule His People throughout Eternity. We can only produce… “Fruit”… as we abide in the “Vine!”

(John 15:1-to-5) I am = the True Vine, = and = My Father = is the Vinedresser.
(John 15:2) Every branch in Me = that does not bear fruit, = He takes away. = And every one = that bears fruit, = He prunes it = so that = it may bring forth = more fruit.
(John 15:3) Now = you = are clean through = the Word = which I [Jesus] have spoken = to you.
(John 15:4) Abide in Me, = and I in you. = As the branch = cannot bear fruit = of itself = unless it remains = in the vine, = so neither can you = unless you abide = in Me.
(John 15:5) I am the Vine, = you are the branches. = He who abides in Me, = and I in him, = the same = brings forth much fruit; = for = without Me = you can do = nothing.

There is 'NO'… goodness or righteousness within ourselves. The Only Good in us… is that of Christ Jesus and His Grace working in our Lives. Those that think that they are… good on their own… are mistaken. Worse than that… they are deluded into thinking that they are something that they are not. Could it be as ‘some’ are of the… “False Vine”… and not of the… “True Vine?”

Ok, but what about… the Foxes? What would you imagine that would be the… “Greatest Harm”… towards the “Vine & Grapes?” Christ Jesus said… “You are clean through the Word that I have spoken to you [John 15:3].” What would… ‘try and ruin’… that Word? The Word of God is Truth = John 17:17. “Lies” [Foxes] … is what I believe … this word picture is all about.

(Genesis 3:1) Now the serpent [Satan] = was more cunning = than any beast of the field = which Jehovah God = had made. = And = he said = to the woman, = Is it so = that God = has [Really] said, = You shall not eat = of every tree = of the garden?

Here is where the Lie… starts. God never said that ‘Adam & Eve’ could not eat of every tree! He said ‘Only’ of the tree of the “Knowledge of Good & Evil”… you shall ‘Not’ eat! Questioning the… “Absolute Authority of Jehovah God”… is the underlying plan for all of Satan’s work. His next plan is to replace it… “With a LIE!”

(Genesis 3:5) for = God knows = that in the day = you eat of it, = then your eyes shall be opened, = and you = shall be = “as God”, = knowing good and evil.

God’s intent was Never… for mankind to know about evil. This fascination about evil had led mankind ‘to follow’ after it. Even the TV shows are explicit about it, let alone the Movies. Who really ‘needs or wants’… to know about a “Serial Killer” or a “Child Molester” or even the perversion of Pornography? Surely it “Cannot”… do the ‘Family or Society’… “Any Good!”

The Truth of the Word of God… will be challenged by those that do not want God or His Word, the Bible… hold them “Responsible!” They want “License”… to do what they want without any consequences. Our jail facilities are being filled to overflowing with… “Lifetime Criminals”… who will never be released. Doing away with the ‘Death Penalty’ has only contributed to… an increase in crime.

(Proverbs 12:22) Lying lips = are an abomination = to the LORD: = but they that deal = truly = are His delight.

Did You know “Obfuscation”… is simply another… ‘Legal Word’… for “A Lie!” Even our language has been changed to accommodate… “Lies!” The word ‘Homosexual’… has been replaced with the word ‘gay.’ The Killing of Innocent Babies in their Mother’s Womb… has been called ‘Choice?’ Choice for Who? Surely not for the “Innocent Baby”… that was ‘Killed’… by its ‘Mother?’ All these Lies… are to turn society against… “The Truth that comes from God!”

How about You… do you readily accept the Lies? Would you do so from your Doctor or Pharmacist or even your Banking Institution? Certainly Not! Why then do you so readily accept… The Lies… when they pertain to Society and “Right & Wrong? Perhaps it is because “God is not your Father?” Well who then… is your father? May I suggest ‘Who’… as the ‘Word’ does?

(John 8:44) You belong = to your father = the devil, = and you = want to carry out = the desires of your father. = He was a murderer = from the beginning = and = has never stood = by the Truth, = since there is = No Truth = in him. = Whenever he tells = A Lie = he speaks in character, = for he is a Liar = and = the father of Lies.

Pretty hard words… for those, who are apt to… ‘Stretch the Truth [Lie]’. Could it be that you have become so very comfortable with “Lies”… that you cannot even discern… ‘The Truth?” A simple test is the… “10-Commandments!” You shall not… “Murder, Commit Adultery [Sexual Sins], Steal, Lie or Covet! Pretty simple isn’t it? Or how about “God”… do you love Him with all your heart, mind and soul… to tell the Truth in ‘every situation?’ Can you be ‘Honest’ for once?

(Luke 18:13-14) "But the tax collector = stood at a distance = and would not even = look up to heaven. = Instead, he continued = to beat his chest = and said, = 'O God, = be merciful to me, = the sinner = that I am!'
(Luke 18:14) I [Jesus] = tell you, = this man, = rather than = the other, = went down to his home = justified. = For everyone = who exalts himself = will be humbled, = but the person = who humbles himself = will be exalted."

Will… You… cry out to God for… “His Mercy, Grace and Forgiveness”… that “He” … offers to… “You?”

(Son 2:15) Take us the foxes, = the little foxes = that spoil the vines; = for our vines = have tender grapes.

“Good or Not? – 101”…Blog.

“Good or Not? – 101”…Blog.

Can you believe… that anyone would tell ‘You’ that… “You’re No Good?” Each and every one of us believes that there is… ‘Some Good In Us!’ Well there are even songs to tell us that we are no good. They are written to express the ‘Betrayal’ and how we have ‘Treated One Another’. Most of them came out of the “60’s” music. They speak about… ‘Cheating with Another!’

Much of that music… was from an ‘Era’… where people simply believe that when someone told you… “I love You”… it was for Real. Many soon found out that ‘people’ are… “Users & Posers!” Too many… ‘Young girls’… are attracted to Boys and older men… looking to them to fulfill a “Fantasy of Romance.” Too soon did they realize that ‘SEX’… is not really… “True Love!”

Too often this… has lead to… an unwanted pregnancy which often leads to Abortion and the death of an “Innocent Child!” Relatively speaking both men and women… without morals or any goodness within themselves… will capitulate to those… “Desires of SEX!” Those were to be fulfilled only after marriage. The media tell us many times every day… “It’s OK - Just Do It!”

How about Valtrex… that anti viral drug for “Herpes?” They state in their advertisements that Over… “40% of those Sexually Active”… will pass Herpes, on to their partner. “Wow”… what ‘a gift’ to give to your… “Future Mate?” Most of the News Media… mocks the “Abstinence Programs”… but does nothing about the spread of… “STD’S.” [Sexually Transmitted Diseases]. You do not know where your partner… “Last had in their… Mouth?”

We are ‘All’... Put to the Test! But it ‘Never Comes’… in the Form or… at the Point or… in the form, that we would prefer… “Does It?” This is the theme from a movie called… ‘The Edge [1979]. Let me warn you that there is some profanity that I do not like… but the story line is Great! When tried… and the tests will come… they only reveal our “Inner Character’.

We need a source… greater than ourselves! We are only playing out life… with our human nature, which is ‘Fallen!’ Perhaps you have seen the “The Maury or Jerry Springer Programs?” Those people on that program… “Are No Different”… than those of Hollywood! There are two differences, “One” is their… “Finances or Economic Status!”… The “Other”… is that they don’t have the… “Paparazzi”… chase them about so that they can ‘sell their pictures’ to the media who in turn sells them to… “The Idol Dummies!”

Wow… that is pretty Tough! Not really… those are “The Facts!” Most simply watch TV and Videos as… ‘Entertainment!’ They seldom if ever… examine… “The Message!” Ever Song is a Sermon and changes your Thinking whether you realize it or not. So too the media has their Agenda… ‘To Change Your ‘Moral Base’ Thinking… to Theirs = Political Correctness!”

So just how Good… are You? On a scale of… “One-to-Ten”… How Good are YOU? About now you are comparing yourself to… ‘Some Others’… you know. Last night Senator Kennedy died. How good was He…? If you are old enough… perhaps you remember… “Mary Jo Kopechne”… and the incident at… Chappaquiddick? She died because he was ‘under the infulence’ and did not report the incident till he was sober.

(Romans 7:18) For = I know = that = nothing good = lives in me, = that is, = in my flesh. = For I have the desire = to do what is right, = but = I cannot carry it out.

So Who is ‘Good’… and Who is ‘Not?’ Would you believe that God in His Word… says that there are… “None Good… No Not One?” Each & Every… one of us are looking out for… “Number One – Ourselves!” Say it isn’t so… to that person in … “Your Mirror!” Really we care about ourselves before Others. Why else would ONE… ‘pretend to be’… Someone they are Not?

(Romans 3:10-11-12) as it is written: = "There is none righteous, = no = not one;
(Rom 3:11) there is = none = that understands, = there is = none = that seeks after God."
(Rom 3:12) "They are = all = gone out of the way, = they have together become = unprofitable, = there is = none = that does good, = no, = not one."

Well it Appears… that “God” looks at us quite differently… than we see ourselves? Well once again… So just how ‘Good’ are You? On a scale of… “One-to-Ten”… How ‘Good’ are YOU? When we simply compare ourselves with “God and His Word”… we will Always… fall short! Before I was ‘Born Again’… I was ‘religious’ when I need to be. In conversation I could defend myself as ‘good’ simply because I compared myself to “Others!”

(2Corinthians 10:12) We = would not dare = put ourselves = in the same class with = or = compare ourselves = to those who = recommend themselves. = When they measure themselves = by themselves = and = compare themselves = to themselves, = they show how = foolish = they are.

See how very simple… this whole concept is? We are all Nothing… but we are motivated by “Self and Sin”… in rebellion against God! But, He has so much love for us… that He sent His only Son… ‘Christ Jesus’… to be the… “Total & Eternal”… payment for all our ‘Sin/Sins’… “Past, Present & Future!” Remember Christ Jesus died and rose again… ‘Over 2,000-years ago’… our Future!

(Romans 5:8) But = God = demonstrates His love = for us = by the fact that = Christ = died for us = while = we were = still sinners.

(John 1:12) But = as many = as received = Him, = He gave = to them = authority = to become = the children of God, = to those = who believe on = His name,

Amazing that He [God]… could love mankind so ‘very’ much. Did you notice the word… “While”…? He did not tell us to… ‘Clean up our lives and live Right!’ That is what Salvation is all about. As a child learns from their parents… so a new child of God… you will learn from “His Word the Bible”. It is God’s Instruction Book… for Salvation and Life! “Yes… ‘All’ aspects of Life!”

Perhaps you have… only casually thought about God? Many people… “Put Off”… making a decision while they still can. Every time You… “Reject the Knowledge of God”… your heart will become that much “Harder against Him”. I have a friend with whom I share this Truth. I have been told… “Keep it to Yourself!” I see what ‘they’ are going through and can only now… pray for them. God has sent Christ Jesus… “For Your = Ultimate Good! Why then do you… keep saying… ‘NO’… To God …?

What more can I say…? ‘You will be the One’… Who has to make that ‘Life Determining Decision!’ I cannot force you to… come to God… but will simply point you to Him… and His Word! Once you die… it will be too late. There will be… ‘No Second Chances!’ No one will be able to help you. Remember the question… So just how Good… are You? On a scale of… “One-to-Ten”… How Good are YOU?

For the answer… those that have… “Chosen Salvation and to Obey the Word of God”… this is their Answer…!

(2Corinthains 4:5-to-10) For we = do not preach ourselves = but = Jesus Christ as Lord, = and ourselves = as merely your servants = for Jesus' sake.
(2Co 4:6) For God, = Who said, = "Let light shine out of darkness," = has shined in our hearts = to give us the light = of the knowledge of = God's glory = in the face of = Jesus Christ.
(2Co 4:7) But we = have this treasure = in clay jars [our human bodies] = to show that its = extraordinary power = comes from God = and = not from us.
(2Co 4:8) In every way = we're troubled = but not crushed, = frustrated = but not in despair,
(2Co 4:9) persecuted = but not abandoned, = struck down = but not destroyed.
(2Co 4:10) We are always = carrying around = the death of Jesus = in our bodies, = so that = the life of Jesus = may be clearly shown = in our bodies [lives].

(Colossians 1:27) to whom = God = wanted to make known = the glorious riches = of this secret = among the gentiles = which is = Christ in you, = the hope of glory.

The Choice is Yours…! “Not to ‘Decide’… is ‘to’ Decide!”

“Grace Away Sin – 101”…Blog.

“Grace Away Sin – 101”…Blog.

(Matthew 24:35) The heaven = and = the earth = shall pass away, = but = My Words = shall not = pass away.

(Matthew 3:8) Produce fruit = is consistent = with repentance!

Today, there are ‘Many’… who “Grace Away Sin’… by wrongly applying a particular Bible verse. Often times, some will even use a Bible verse, completely out of context… to try and prove a particular point. They even “CHOOSE” not to read the… ‘Associated Verses in the same chapter’… that deals with that subject… let alone in the same ‘book’.

This is referred to as… “License”… that is “Falsely Believing”… that one can continue to… “Live in Sin”… because Christ Jesus paid for “SIN”, by His Death and Resurrection from the Dead. This was even happening in the Early Church and the Holy Spirit warned us of it in… “Jude 1:7-8”.

(Romans 6:14-15) For sin = shall not = have dominion = over you, = for = you are not = under Law, = but = under grace.
(Rom 6:15) What then? = Shall we = sin = because = we are not = under Law, = but = under grace? = Let it not be!

What many choose… ‘NOT’ to understand is that… “God’s Grace is ‘ONLY’… for His Real Children!” Those that are ‘Really His Children’… and “Choose to Sin”… “He ‘GOD’… will SPANK!” He - ‘God’ = Promises to… “SPANK His Children”… When they Sin! And furthermore says that… IF He does not Chasten them… they are ‘NOT Really’ – His Children… but “Bastards” - [Illegitimate]!

(Hebrews 12:6-7-8) For = the Lord = disciplines = the one = He loves, = and = He = punishes = every son = He accepts."
(Heb 12:7) What you endure = is for = the sake of discipline. = God is treating you = as sons. = Is there a son = whom his father = does not discipline?
(Heb 12:8) Now if you = are without ‘any’ discipline, = in which all [claim to be] sons = then you are = ‘Illegitimate’ = and = Not = His sons.

(1Corinthians 11:29-30-31) For he = who eats and drinks unworthily = eats and drinks = condemnation = to himself, = not discerning = the Lord's body.
(1Cor 11:30) For this cause = many = among you = are = weak = and = sickly, = and many are dead.
(1Cor 11:31) For = if = we would judge ourselves, = we would not = be judged.

Plain & Simple… is this “Truth from God’s Word!” Because ‘MOST’ who say they are Christians… “DO NOT”… ‘Read & Study’… their Bible; they often substitute… ‘Religion’… for the ‘Truth’. They will sometimes casually hear it in Church… but during the rest of the week… ‘Not’ make it a “Priority” in their Lives. They say that they… Know God… and yet do not… Know His Word which reveals… “His Mind & Heart & Workings”… towards mankind.

(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 [Word] = of My Father in Heaven.
(Mat 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? [See… Acts 19:13-to-17]
(Mat 7:23) And then = I = will say to them = I = never knew you! = Depart from Me, = those working = lawlessness!

We are under ‘Grace’… and You have no right… to speak to me… those Bible Verses! “That is the comment I get ‘most’ of the time”. Most do not understand that the… “Law of God”… the “Word of God”… is what will “Judge Them!” They continually revert to… “Claiming Grace”… and still continue in ‘Rebellion’… against the Word of God! Please see… “John 12:44-to-50!”

Say it isn’t So…? Just for instance, our nation of America… ‘MOST’ practice “License” in their Spiritual Lives. Ask almost anyone and they will say that America is a ‘Christian Nation’. But it is Not really! “Not in Practice!” If most were really Christians… how then did our Nation… “Murder over 35-Million Babies”… in their Mother’s Womb and still continue… to do so? Christianity here is mostly… “Cultural!”

(Hebrews 10:15-to-18) The Holy Spirit = also assures us = of this. = For He said,
(Heb 10:16) "This is = the covenant = that I will make = with them = after those days, = declares the Lord: = I will put my LAWS = in their hearts = and = will write them = on their minds,"
(Heb 10:17) And, = "I will never again = remember their sins = and their lawless deeds."
(Heb 10:18) Now = where there is = forgiveness = of these sins, = there is no longer = any offering for sin.

The Grace of God… is there for those that are… “Positionally HIS”… by this… “Finished Work of Christ Jesus”. Did you notice… “I will put My Laws – in their Hearts?” IF we are ‘No Longer’ to Obey = the Law of God… why then would HE… put them in our hearts? There is a human dynamic here… it is one of “Obedience!” See... "Luke 6:46 & James 1:22."

(Isaiah 30:21) And your ears = shall hear = a word = behind you, = saying, = This is the way, = walk in it, = when you turn to the right hand = and = when you turn to the left.

(Romans 12:1-2) I beseech you therefore, brothers, = by the mercies of God = to present your bodies = a living sacrifice, = holy, = pleasing to God, = which is your = reasonable service of worship.
(Rom 12:2) And = do not = be conformed = to this world, = but = be transformed = by the renewing of your mind, = in order to prove by you = what is that good = and = pleasing = and = perfect = will of God.

God Does NOT… automatically put… “His Law –His Word”… in our ‘Hearts and Minds’. We have to study and know His Word! Right about now… someone will say… “What about the Dietary Law?” First that was ‘Only’… given to God’s People… Israel. Second, the dietary law was set aside in the New Covenant as Peter and the NT Church leaders stated here in these words.

(Act 10:12-to-16) in which were = all the four-footed animals of the earth, = and the wild beasts, = and the reptiles, = and the birds of the heaven.
(Acts 10:13) And = a Voice = came to him, = saying, = Rise, Peter! Kill and eat!
(Acts 10:14) But Peter said, = Not so, Lord, = for I have never = eaten anything that is common = or unclean.
(Acts 10:15) And = the Voice = spoke to him again = the second time, = What God = has made clean, = you do not call common.
(Acts 10:16) This happened three times, = and = the vessel was received up again into the heaven.

(Acts 15:18-19-20) All His works are known to God = from eternity.
(Acts 15:19) Therefore my judgment is = that we do not trouble = those who have = turned to God = from among the nations,
(Acts 15:20) But = that we write to them = that they should abstain = from pollutions of idols, = and from fornication, = and from things strangled, = and from blood.

Still there are… those that wrongly preach.. “Grace for All”… and ‘NOT Only for… “God’s Children!” Perhaps this… “License”… will become more and more prevalent = as our nation moves = ‘further & further’ away from… the Word of God!

(Romans 13:8-9-10) Owe no one anything, = except to love one another; = for he who loves another = has fulfilled the Law.
(Rom 13:9) For: = "Do not commit adultery; = do not murder; = do not steal; = do not bear false witness; = do not lust;" = and if = there is any other commandment, = it is summed up in this word, = "You shall love your neighbor = as yourself."
(Rom 13:10) Love works no ill = to its neighbor, = therefore love = is the fulfilling of the Law.

This word ‘Love’… is not human love or brotherly love. It is the “Love produced “ONLY”… by God’s Holy Spirit – indwelling the Child of God!” In the Greek NT it is the word… “Agape!” Only God can produce that ‘Love’… in a human… by His Holy Spirit. But did you notice that the Moral Law… was still there? It is not done away with… by God’s Grace.

Perhaps to the “Heart Issue”…? God is not concerned only with the ‘outward man’… but also the… “Inward ONE!” Many times in the Gospels… “He – Christ Jesus”… dealt with the Heart of Mankind and the Moral Law of God! Simply read it for yourself… and then tell me… ‘IF’… the Law has been done away with?

(Matthew 5:27-28) You have heard = that it was said to the ancients, = "You shall not = commit adultery."
(Matt 5:28) But I [Jesus] = say to you = that whoever looks on a woman = to lust after her = has already committed adultery = with her = in his heart.

(Mark 10:11-12) So He [Jesus] = said to them, = "Whoever divorces his wife = and marries another woman = commits adultery = against her.
(Mark 10:12) And = if = a woman = divorces her husband = and = marries another man, = she commits adultery."

Plain & Simple… is the Word of God. Those that ‘teach & preach’… that the Law has been done away with… are those the wrongly ‘justify divorce’… and… “Remarriage into Adultery!” There are MORE Divorces and remarriages among those that… ‘Say’ they are Christian… than among “Un-Believers!” Truly they… “Grace Away Sin”… and turn it into… “License!”

(1Peter 4:17-18) For = the time has come = for the judgment = to begin = from the house of God. = And if = it first begins from us, = what will be the end = of those = disobeying = the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And = if = the righteous one = is scarcely saved, = where shall the ungodly = and the sinner = appear?

“Too Late – 101”…Blog

“Too Late – 101”…Blog.

When is it… ‘Too Late? Most of us have at least one ‘Email’ address. I have several and check the independently. Some of my important Emails I have reserved for Banking information which includes Credit Cards. I also have that dedicated for my Insurance information. My other emails I have for… ‘Chat & the like! Often times I have been sent an offer for a sale and forgot to reply only to find that it had expired…! Too Late…!

How about the Movies…? I generally do not go but wait till they come out on DVD. When I did go to them some years ago, I always went early to get a good seat. But even though there was always plenty of time for those that plan… there were always those… that came in after the movie had already started. No I do not mean the previews… but the actual movie! Some even 10-minutes after it started and they were… “Too Late…!”

Have you ever… gone to the airport with plenty of time and found that you were… ‘Too Late?’ No you never were because you went there… with plenty of time. I used to fly for business… and never in 5 years missed a flight. Often times I have seen people arrive ‘Late’ to their departure gate only to find that the plane had left. ‘Too Late…!”

When I fly now… for vacation, I am signed up with various ‘travel sites’ to get the best prices. Often times they will offer me a price that I cannot afford… ‘To miss’. I traveled to London UK, for only $350 round trip! I could not pass that up and I was not… “Too Late…!”
During the Christmas Season… some of the stores have ‘Special Items’… in a limited number. There are lines of people waiting for ‘days’… to be the first to get the item. One person in a news report… went to the person at the head of the line and paid $500… just to get the item. “Bragging Rights”… was all he got. One week later the stores had all you wanted. If he had… ‘Only Waited’… but he was… ‘Too Early to be… Too Late!”

Most of us… including myself put off till tomorrow… what we can do today. I have a ‘walk in’ closet that is waiting for me to clean it. So, recently I bought myself a… ‘Roll-A-Way’ stainless steel tool chest from Sears. It was on sale and I saved $150 over the listed price. I have been cleaning my place and putting away those “Things” of importance into my chest. Some of my important tools and camera equipment have been moved there. Now I can ‘never’ say that I cannot find them because I was… “Too Late…!”

How many of us… do not pay our Credit Card bills early?’ I ‘always’ pay mine immediately when they show up on my account. I do not wait till the due date. Consequently… in a good way I… have a very high credit rating [Deacon Score]. Why do you think that so very many people are strapped financially? It is because… they have ‘spent more’… than they ‘had’ or… even could ‘afford’. They had to have… “It Now!” They are soon trapped in the… “Cycle of Debt”… and are… “Too Late…!”

Have you planned… to drive somewhere to attend a show? I often go to ‘gun shows’ located in Florida and sometimes have to drive quite a distance. There is one in Miami that I am planning on attending. It is in September and takes about ‘5-hours’ to drive there from where I live. I plan to take a “Mini Vacation” also that weekend. But my plans need to be finalized so that I may soon book my motel on… ‘Miami Beach’… so that I will not be… “Too Late…!”

An uncle of mine… went into the doctor and then to the hospital, because he did not feel very well. He had been in ‘Excellent Health’… all his life and could ‘never’ remember being sick a day in his life. Thus he ‘never’ went for his ‘annual checkup’. The doctors found that Cancer had invaded his entire system and later that week he ‘died’. Had he gone to the doctors annually… he would not have been… “Too Late…!”

Do You, Remember “9-11”… and how you thought about God? The churches were packed to overflowing… by those that never attended church before. They did now know what the future held and were… “Terrified by other - possible Terrorist attacks!” Now since then… have you even thought about God? What are you waiting for or are you going to wait till it is… “Too Late…?”

(Hebrews 9:27) And = as it is appointed = to men = once to die, = but = after this = the judgment,

Soon without Warning… it will be… Too Late! You may die any day without warning! You too will stand before God and have to give an account what You did with His Son… “Christ Jesus!” What will you say to Him…? Once you are dead… it is ‘Then’… “Too Late…!” Am I trying to scare you? Absolutely Not…! But life is not… ‘guaranteed tomorrow’… so we need to… ‘Plan for Eternity… NOW’… before it is… “Too Late…!”

(Revelation 20:10-to-15) And = the Devil = who deceived them = was cast into = the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, = where the beast = and = the false prophet were. = And = he = will be tormented = day and night = forever and ever.
(Rev 20:11) And = I saw = a great white throne, = and = Him = sitting on it, = from whose face = the earth and the heaven = fled away. = And = a place was not found for them.
(Rev 20:12) And = I saw = the dead, = the small = and= the great, = stand before God. = And = books were opened, = and = another book was opened, = which is the = Book of Life. = And = the dead = were judged = out of those things = which were written = in the books, = according to their works.
(Rev 20:13) And = the sea gave up the dead in it. = And = death and hell = delivered up = the dead in them. = And = each one = of them was judged = according to = their works.
(Rev 20:14) And = death and hell = were cast into = the Lake of Fire. = This is the second death.
(Rev 20:15) And if = anyone = was not found = having been written = in the Book of Life, = he was cast = into = the Lake of Fire.

(2Corinthians 6:1-2) Since, then, = we are working with God, = we plead with you = not to accept God's grace = in vain.
(2Cor 6:2) For He says, = "At the right time = I heard you, = and = on a day of salvation = I helped you." = Listen, = NOW = is really = the "right time"! = Now is the = "day of salvation"!

Will You be… “Too Late…?”

“Economics – 101 [Babylon]” …Blog.

“Economics – 101 [Babylon]” …Blog.

Today a simple… lesson in ‘Economics’. Right now… how much money do you have in your purse or wallet? How much can ‘You’ take out and count? How about the… ‘CASH’… that you have stashed in the cookie jar or in some other… ‘Hidden Place?’ That is ‘the money’ that you can spend… “Now”… without adding to your Debt!

Now, you may tell me… that you have ‘other monies’ in the Bank or in Investments. But you cannot spend that money… ‘till you withdraw it!’ I often hear people say, “The Stock Market is so bad, I have lost $10,000 already!” That is a “LIE!” You, “Do Not Lose”… ‘The Money’… Till you “Cash In”… the stock by selling it. Your investments were planned for… ‘Long Term Gain’… not a ‘day by day’… evaluation.

Just how much… do you “Think”… you are worth? Well perhaps you should take a piece of paper and figure it out? Simply take what ‘You’ have in… “Real Cash on hand”… and then Subtract… Your Debt! “Oops…!” That figure is a… ‘Negative Number!’ Well, that is what you “Net Worth” is in… Dollars, PBS [British Pounds Sterling], German Marks or… in any other currency.

As the international currencies… ‘fluctuate hourly’… on the “World Markets”… so does your worth! So ‘TOO’… your ‘Debt Fluctuates’… as the Currencies do. How did this all start? Simple answer… ‘Nations’… removed themselves from the “Gold Standard!” Today your monies are simply… “Ones & Zeros”… in a computer database. When you go to your bank, they may give you ‘printed money’ that you may use but today… but many may use a… “Debit or Credit”… card instead.

But what about… your ‘Debt?’ Your personal debt, whether it be ‘Credit Cards’, ‘Personal Loans’ or ‘Mortgages’ and the Like! It is “What” you owe to someone… usually a bank or other lending institution. Credit Cards and their interest rates have ‘crippled’ many Americans and others worldwide… by their “Miss-USE!” Those companies make their monies on the… “Interest” Paid… on the “Outstanding Balance!” Bankruptcy filings are at an… ‘All time high’… for all types of Debt!

The fluctuating property prices… which were “Over Inflated” to begin with, have resulted in people… “Owing More”… than their ‘properties’ are worth! Remember the… “True Price”… of the property you own… is what you can sell it for ‘Today!’ …“Not Tomorrow… but Today!” This problem has come about because Congress has changed the ‘finance rules’ so that… “Economically Un-Qualified People”… have purchased ‘Properties’… they could… “Economically ‘Not’ Afford!”

This is ‘Only’… an indicator of our National Debt. Sorry but the ‘National Debt Clock’ is out of order ad… “MORE DIGITS”… have to be added to it! Our government spending is… “Out of Balance”… in relation to our GDP [Gross Domestic Product]. In simple English… we ‘Spend’ more than we ‘Make!’ This means that the Debt we are accruing with these… “Socialistic Bail Outs”… will simply… ‘Cripple’… our nation in the Future. How about our… “Foreign Debt”… which we “OWE”… Other Countries? The “Current Interest”… on our National Debt is… “One Trillion Dollars” a year… without repayment of the… “Owed Principle!” It is Mind Staggering!

Realistically we owe… Over… “$3 – Trillion Dollars”… To other ‘Nations!’ Here is the List in order of the ‘Debt’… Japan, China, UK, OPEC Nations, and Caribbean Banking centers and Others. How can we pay off our “Domestic Debt”… when we owe so much to Foreign Countries? We cannot! Our ‘foreign aid’ is still going to countries… that are enemies of the USA. Why is that…?

What would happen… “IF”… the ‘USA’… were to… “Go Bankrupt”… and could not pay… ‘ANY’ of our Foreign and Domestic Debt? You saw the Worldwide Ripple in the Money Markets already this past year! Just think about it? We as a Nation… “Immediately Stop”… All Foreign Aid and Subsidies to all others… including those we ‘Owe Monies’ to! We as a Nation declare… “Bankruptcy!” What would this do to our… “World Economic System”…?

(Revelation 14:7-8) He said in a loud voice, = "Fear God = and = give Him glory, = because the hour of = His judgment = has come. = Worship the One [God] = Who made heaven = and = earth, = the sea = and = springs of water."
(Rev 14:8) Then another angel, = a second one, = followed him, = saying, = "Fallen! = Babylon the Great = has fallen! = She has made = all the nations = drink the wine = of the wrath = of her sexual sins."

Now I am not saying… that the USA is ‘Babylon’. But whatever “The System” it is… is the World Leader in the Economies of the Nations! God Himself will… “Judge in Righteousness”… those things that Babylon did… with their economic system.

Do you know that the USA is the… worldwide exporter of… “Pornography”… throughout the ‘World?’

What if our Economic… system were based on Gold or some other precious metal or jewels? What would happen if those commodities… flood the World Markets? Then the World Economic System would be… “Bust!” About now one may say, “How could that be…?” Perhaps I may share another verse from the Bible?

(Revelation 16:21) Huge hailstones, = each weighing = about 100 pounds, = fell from the sky = on people. = They = cursed God = because = the plague of hail = was such a terrible plague.

What IF… Jewel encrusted Gold stones… fell from the heavens… not only killing mankind but destroying properties. IF those stones were of precious metals & jewels… what would happen to the… “World Wide Economic System”…? It would simply be… “Busted – Broke – and – Non Existent!

How then could Anyone… ‘Buy and Sell?” Our currencies would be worthless! Nations would have no ability to transfer wealth. The jewelry we own… would be worthless! There is nothing that could be used as… Currency! Could it be that there would be Someone… who would come on the scene to rescue this worldwide… ‘Catastrophe?’

(Revelation 13:16-17-18) The second beast = forces = all people-important and unimportant, = rich and poor, = free and slaves = to be marked on their right hands = or = on their foreheads,
(Rev 13:17) so that = no one = may = buy or sell = unless = he has the mark, = which is the beast's name = or = the number of its name.
(Rev 13:18) This calls for wisdom: = Let the person who has understanding = figure out the number of the beast, = because = it is the number of a person. = Its number is 666.

There will be… a person with “Satanic Power - Called the Anti Christ”… who will control… “All”… ‘The Worlds Economic Power!’ That person ‘may’ even be here today. There will be… ‘No Redemption”… for ‘Anyone’ that takes that …“Mark of the Beast!” Simply look at the nations and the world wide… “Economic Conditions!” It appears that our ‘current’ system of… “Borrowings & Lendings”… is simply setting the Stage… for worldwide these actions.

Is there “Anything”… that ‘You’ can do about this advancing problem? Well, you may tell me that you ‘do not believe’… “The Bible!” You may even tell that you are sick of… ‘Religion!’ I am not here to tell you about religion… but about a relationship… With God… through the “Finished Work”… of His Son, Christ Jesus! It is “HE”… Who died and rose again… as payment for ‘Your’… “Sin/Sins!”

(Romans 10:9-to-13) If you = declare with your mouth = that Jesus is Lord [Savior], = and = believe in your heart = that God = raised Him = from the dead, = you will be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For = a person believes = with his heart = and = is justified, = and = a person declares = with his mouth = and = is saved.
(Rom 10:11) For = the Scripture says, = "Everyone = who = believes in Him [Christ Jesus] = will = not be ashamed."
(Rom 10:12) For = there is no difference = between Jew = and = Gentile, = because = they all = have = the same Lord, = Who = gives richly = to all = who = call on Him.
(Rom 10:13) For = "everyone = who calls on = the name of the Lord = will be saved."

Do you Know… that You are a sinner unable to save yourself from your “Sin/Sins”…? IF you do know that… then now is the time to Call Upon… God… for His Mercy! Simply tell… “Him”… what is in your heart… and that you Need Him as your… “Savior & Lord!” If you need more, please feel free to email me.

“Who am I – 101”…Blog.

“Who am I – 101”…Blog.

Thank you for… allowing me to share these thoughts with you. The title is really… "Who am I ? & Whose am I ...?" was meant to gender a thought process, "within You!" Do you purposely Think… or do you just believe all… that is fed to you by the Media?

As it was said... by someone one time, 5% of people think, 10% think they think, and 85% don't think at all. How much do you think? How much do you 'want to think?' The choice is yours only if you choose!

Who am I = Identifies what I am to myself and what I am to other people. I may be a husband or a wife or a mistress, married or divorced, one time or many times. I may be a father or a mother. I may be a son or a daughter, an aunt or an uncle, a grandfather or a grandmother. I may even be adopted or an orphan. I may be even a social leper! I may even say, my brother was an only child!

Who am I... may be an identifier to what vocation or what calling or what choosing I have, or don't have in life. I may be a factory worker, a secretary, a waiter or waitress or some other profession, if you will, a blue-collar worker. On the other hand, I may be a professional, a white-collar worker. A doctor, a lawyer, a teacher or some other profession that has required an extensive educational background and or training.

Who am I... may be used to identify the ethnic background I choose or have not chosen. I may be White, Black, Latino, Native American, or a Foreign National of somewhere else. I may be of royal blood or common, depending my country identification. I may even be a neutral, no one, from nowhere, and of no particular country or race identifier. I could even be a ‘nowhere man!’ Most of all, I am just a member of the human race. A son of Adam or a daughter of Eve!

Who am I... can also be used to identify where I live. I may live, under an overpass, in a car, in an apartment, in a house that I rent or own. My house may be small, large or extravagant. On the sea in a boat, or in the mountains in a cabin, or on a farm, in the city or in the rural area, even in a slum or in the jungle, desert or the like.

Who am I... can also be used to identify the type of vehicle I drive. I may drive a compact, or a full size car, or anywhere in-between. I may have a stock car, or I may customize the car with anything from an upgraded sound system to a full blueprint of the engine, drive train and chassis. Motorcycle, truck, van, pickup limo, a bicycle, or unicycle or even, walking.

Who am I... can be identified in my sexual preference. Strait, gay, BI or any variation, monogamous or polygamous My sexual preference, especially in a this politically correct society, may protect me from any so-called job discrimination.

Who am I... can be identified to my presence or absence of any religious affiliation. I can be a Christian, a Jew, a Moslem, an agnostic, a Hindu, a Bahia, a Zealot or a Liberal or a conservative in any mix or religious identification. I may even adhere to more than one of these, as a type of insurance against eternity, if or if it does or doesn't exist.

Who am I... can be identified by my logic or reason process, lack of process, a mix of both or neither, the choice is mine, to think or not to think, that is the question. “Ignorance can be Fixed… Stupid is Forever!”

Who am I... can be used to identify my preferences or bigotry, depending how strongly I feel about a particular subject, fact, action by who, what, where or why. I can be liberal, conservative, or a mix of any thought or persuasion, depending on what I want to act with or without.

Who am I... can be used to identify my physical condition. Am I well, or sick, a Para-pelagic. Am I a cancer survivor, a surgery survivor, an accident survivor or any combination of physical aliment or medical condition survivor, in any mix or combination? Do I have Aids, Pneumonia, and SARS? How many limbs do I have, all, some or none. Am I seeing, partially blind, blind or a combination of them any or all?

Who am I... can be directly related on how I view my wealth or lack thereof, if you will, rich or poor. Stocks and bonds, bank accounts, estates, real estate, companies, land and or property, in any way, shape or form. Even whether I have “barer-bonds”… in an offshore account. I may have “no” earthly commodities, except the money I have in my very pocket, even if it is… ‘none’.

Who am I... can use any, all, of these social identifiers in any mix, or none of these identifiers. I can use them to gain advantage over my pears, or not use them as such. I choose, what am I, how I use it, where I use it and most of all, Why I use it.

Now: Whose am I –or- If you will = WHO Do I belong TO? = This is more important than Who am I. Who do I belong to? No, not any of the above identifiers will help me when I am faced with eternity. My eternity, by my own choice, will be determined by, "Whose I am!"

Whose am I... is down to only two choices. Am I a child of Satan, or a child of God will determine my real condition. You will tell me that all men are brothers, but I will tell you, that Christ told those in... John 8:44... "You are of your father - the Devil!"

Your human lineage... is as a son or daughter of Adam and Eve. In the human economy, as far as national identifiers, as God counts peoples, "You are either a Jew or a Gentile!" There are no other choices, no matter what you or I say.

How does God... identify who He is God of; Jews, the gentiles or something other? Let's us also see what His Word says, about who is a Jew and or who is a gentile or of both, neither or other?

(Romans 2:28-29) For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: (Rom 2:29) But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
(Romans 9:6-7) Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: (Rom 9:7) Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

Now... that we have identified that Who God Says, is a Jew or a Gentile, it is quite clear, that no matter what I say, or anyone else say, their human lineage is, God is the only one, who knows for sure, even though I say I am a Jew or I am a gentile.

The next question is: Who is a Child of God? I can say that I am, you can say that I am or that I am not, or that you don't know or a mix of any. But ONLY God knows 'Those that are His!' But, you say, I have had religious affiliation and letters and the like, surely I am a child of God. Jesus said how, in John 7:38-39!

You may say so... but God's word and His Spirit are the only things that can validate your claim, my claim or anyone's claim to be a child of God. See Ephesians 1:1-to-14

(Romans 8:16) The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

(Galatians 3:26-29)
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. (Gal 3:27) For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (Gal 3:28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. (Gal 3:29) And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

(1Corinthians 12:13) For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

"Whose I am?" That is a choice, an identification that You will make, in your response to God's Love for you! You respond to His call, to His Spirit, and to the life and plans He has for you. The choice is yours, only to the response to the Love of God in Christ Jesus. How will you Respond?

(Luke 18:10-14) Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. (Luke 18:11) The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. (Luke 18:12) I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess. (Luke 18:13) And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. (Luke 18:14) I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.

PRAYER: [That YOU can Pray] …Father God, I come to You, unable to save myself from my sin, from the life choices which, I have made, and most of all, 'from my own self'. Father God; "be merciful to me, a sinner". Wash me in the Blood of Christ, allow me; 'to allow - You to be Lord in every aspect of my existence'. I give myself to You, as my Father and my Lord. Lead me into Your Word, and Teach me, what You would have me 'to know and to do', for Your Glory, 'and not my own'. I thank you for the sacrifice of Your Son Christ Jesus, for my sins, and I praise and thank You, for making me Your son [or daughter] in Christ Jesus, and for Your Glory, I pray, Amen & Amen.

Signed: ______________________ Date: _____________________ .

(2Cointhians 13:5) Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except you be reprobates?

(1Corinthians 2:14-15-16) But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1Cor 2:15) But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no one. (1Cor 2:16) For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.

“The Curse – 101”…Blog.

“The Curse – 101”…Blog.

What a heavy subject… to handle today! No one wants to be cursed at… nor have one given to them. But did you know this… ‘Earth’… is cursed for the disobedient actions of the parents of the human race… “Adam & Eve?” Their simple act of disobedience brought… “The Curse”… to all of mankind and creation.

(Genesis 3:16-to-19) To the woman He [God] said, = I will greatly increase your sorrow = and = your conception. = In pain you shall bear sons, = and = your desire shall be toward your husband, = and = he shall rule over you.
(Gen 3:17) And to Adam = He [God] said, = Because you = have listened to the voice of your wife = and = have eaten of the tree, = of which I commanded you, = saying, = You shall not eat of it! = The ground = is cursed for your sake. = In pain shall you eat of it = all the days of your life.
(Gen 3:18) It shall also bring forth thorns = and = thistles to you, = and = you shall eat the herb of the field.
(Gen 3:19) In the sweat of your face = you shall eat bread = until = you return to the ground, = for out of it you were taken. = For dust you are, = and = to dust you shall return.

All Sickness, Pain and Suffering… is a direct result of the “Disobedience of Adam & Eve”. So too we… inherit their Curse. Ever wonder why there is so little… ‘Peace in this World’… and so much Turmoil? All this is a direct result of “Disobedience to God”. The sickness and old age that we all will suffer is… simply reaping what our ‘Human Parents’ did.

(Romans 5:12) Therefore, = just as sin = entered the world = through one man, = and = death through sin, = so death = spread to everyone, = because = all have sinned.

But there is “Good News”…! God has made a provision for mankind in providing a ‘Redeemer Savior’… “Christ Jesus”… the God Man that died and rise again for our… “Sin/Sins!” We need Him… because of the root of sin… in each and every one of our… ‘heats and lives.

(Romans 5:8) But = God = demonstrates His love = for us = by the fact that = Christ = died for us = while we were = still sinners.

(1Corinthains 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.

This “Redeemer is pictured”… in the ‘Passover Sacrifice’ of the OT writings. God’s people, The Jews, were given the Law by God through Moses. They rebelled against God… and did not keep His Law, His Precepts, His Testimonies and His Statutes. And yet they were chosen by God… to be a witness to the World that… “God Loves Mankind!” This Grace is offered to Everyone… and… “Rejected by Most!” How about You… what have You done with this Grace…?

(2Chronicles 6:6) But now I [God] = have chosen Jerusalem, = so that = My Name = might be there, = and = now I have chosen David = to be over = My people = Israel.

Why else would… there be such a... “Hatred for Israel” and the Jews, God’s People? Satan led the angelic rebellion and this rebellion continues in the human rebellion against God and His People! But what is this hatred all about? It is the hatred for God and for the Authority of His Word and… and for All those that are… “Redeemed by Christ Jesus”. I thought that the Jews were God’s chosen people? Yes… but Not All!

(Romans 9:6-7-8) Now = it is not = as though = the Word of God = has failed. = For = not all Israelites = truly belong to Israel,
(Rom 9:7) And not all = of Abraham's descendants = are his True descendants. = On the contrary, = "It is through Isaac = that descendants will be named for you."
(Rom 9:8) That is, = it is not the children of natural descent = who are God's children, = but it is the children = of the promise = who are regarded as descendants.

Wow! Do you understand That…? Human lineage or decent does ‘NOT’ make one a “Child of God!” It is for the one… that accepts by Faith… “The promise of Redemption in the Finished Work of Christ”… as the “Scriptures have Promised!” That is why… ‘So Very Many’… Do Not… believe The Bible and Its Promises of the… “Savior and Lord”… of all Mankind! The “Rejection” of these Facts… causes hatred for the Jews and the Word of God. One cannot say they… Love God… and then Hate His Word… and Hate the Jews!

IF ‘You’ do not Love… “The Bible”…. THEN… You are ‘Not’… a child of God! Plain and simple isn’t it. God gave “His Word” to… ‘His Children’… so that they may know… “The Mind of God!” Without that… “One will simply rely on their ‘human experience’ of Religion”… and not on God and His Word… “The Bible!” This can be tested simply by YOU… substituting your “Experiences”… for what God… has already said in… “His Word”.

The Identical Rebellion… that Adam & Eve had towards God and His commands to them… is the… “Identical Rebellion”… that “ONE”, will have against the “Complete Authority of God’s Word!” Say it isn’t so…? Do you… “Read & Study”… the Word of God… to know the “Mind and Heart of God?” If You… do ‘Not’… then You do not… Love God! See… “John 15:9-10…!”

(Isaiah 55:8-9) For = My thoughts = are not = your thoughts, = nor = your ways = My ways, = says Jehovah [God].
(Isa 55:9) For as = the heavens = are higher than the earth, = so are = My ways = higher than = your ways, = and = My thoughts = than your thoughts.

(Psalms 25:12-13-14) What man is he = who fears Jehovah? = He = shall teach him = in the way = that he shall choose.
(Psalms 25:13) His soul = shall dwell at ease; = and = his seed shall inherit = the earth.
(Psalms 25:14) The secret = of Jehovah = is with those = who fear Him; = and = He will show them = His covenant.

In these Verses… it is plain to see that “MANY”… that say they ‘Know God’… and “Do Not”… know His Word… “Really… ‘Do Not’… Know God!” I have had many profess to me that they “Knew God”… and had done so for Many Years… and yet knew… “Nothing about Him or His Word” or even how He Works… with Mankind! Simply See… “Deuteronomy 29:29!” Do you know… “The Secrets of God?”

About now… there are ‘Some’… that will simply write me off! They will say that I have a critical spirit or that I am legalistic. I have made the statement… “IF you do not Love the Bible… then You Do Not Love… GOD!” How else would You… “Know God?” Surely… Not through Religion! Surely… Not through your Church! YOU have to Learn about God… From His Word, The Bible! That is why He… gave us this pattern… “Percept upon Precept!”

(Isaiah 28:13) But = the Word of Jehovah = was to them = precept on precept, = precept on precept; = line on line, = line on line; = here a little, = there a little; = that they might go, = and = fall backward, = and = be broken = and = snared = and taken.

The Hatred for ‘The Word of God’… goes way beyond… “Religion”. Each and every one of us will stand before God… and… give an account of every aspect of our lives! Most do not want to accept this… “FACT”… but the Word of God… “Bears it Out!” When shown… the Word of God… ONE… Will = “Either REPENT”… or = Will… “Harden their Heart”… against God… and His Word! Do you Not… believe Me? Simply see… “Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 & John 12:44-to-50!”

Adam & Eves Rebellion… against God and His Word… has been passed on to each of US! The hatred for “God’s Word”… is taken away by the “Holy Spirit”… when we are ‘Born Again!’ We then have “God’s Holy Spirit”… indwelling Us for Eternity! Never… to leave us to ourselves ‘Again’. But we can… “Grieve”… the Holy Spirit of God… by our Rebellion against His Word.

(Ephesians 4:30) And = do not = Grieve = the Holy Spirit of God, = by Whom = you are sealed = until = the day of redemption.

(Hebrews 3:13-14-15) But exhort = one another = daily, = while it is called = today, = lest any of you = be hardened = through the deceitfulness = of sin.
(Heb 3:14) For we = are made partakers = of Christ, = if = we hold = the beginning of our confidence = steadfast = to the end,
(Heb 3:15) while it is written, = "Today = if you will hear = His voice [Word], = harden not = your hearts, = as in the provocation."

Ok so what IF… I have been in this condition… for some time… after I have trusted in the Finished Work of Christ? Where do I go from… Here? Perhaps open your Bible… and read out loud… “1John 1:5-to-10!” Then… “Obey”… what the Scripture says. Simple isn’t…? Suppose that I have these doubts Again…? Well then turn to… “Hebrews 9:14”… and read it out loud!

You will then… begin to understand… the “Mind of God”… which ‘ONLY’ comes from His Word! Satan does not want you to… “Read & Study & Learn”… the Word of God! Remember during the temptation of Christ Jesus after He had fasted 40-days… the devil temped Him. But He responded… “It is Written…!” [Matt 4:4 & Luke 4:4] You too, will learn… the Word of God… and then be able to say… “It is Written…!”

Suppose I do not… believe what you have said here in this Blog? Well then, you have given up … just as the Jews did in the OT. ‘Many’… rejected God’s Word… Over and Over and Over Again! Simply Read = Isaiah, Jeremiah and Many of the OT Prophets. They came to the Jews… again and again… with the “Word of The Lord”… and were… “Rejected!” God’s Mercy and Love… was No Longer, extended to Them…!

(Jeremiah 7:16-17) Therefore = do not = pray for this people, = nor = lift up cry = nor prayer = for them, = nor make intercession to Me [God]; = for I = will not hear = you.
(Jer 7:17) Do you not see = what they do = in the cities of Judah = and = in the streets = of Jerusalem?

(Amos 8:11) Behold, = the days come, = says the Lord Jehovah, = that I = will send = = a famine = = in the land; = not a famine of bread = nor = a thirst for water, = = but of hearing = = the Words of Jehovah.

Perhaps NOW… is the time to… ‘Confess and Forsake’… your ways and take “God’s Word”… as your “Only”… point of reference? If you have read all the way through this blog… then your heart is still open to God and to His Word! I would PLEAD… with YOU! Turn to God and His Word… as your only point of reference! Forget Your Religion…! The same Rejection of the Word… that happened to “Israel”… has happened to… ‘Many’ today… that call themselves… “Christians!”

(Proverbs 28:13) He who = covers his sins = shall not be blessed; = but = whoever confesses = and = leaves them = shall have mercy.

(1Corinthains 16:22) If = anyone = does not love = the Lord Jesus Christ, = let him [her] = = be Accursed. = The Lord comes!

“Tongues & the ‘NT Church’ – 101”…Blog.

“Tongues & the ‘NT Church’ – 101”…Blog.

Recently someone sent… me an email about… “Tongues”… in the NT Church supposing it to be ‘evidence’ of one having experienced being… “Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God.” My immediate though was… “Suppose one could not Speak = being a Mute”… what would be their evidence if… ‘Tongues’… were supposed to be ‘the evidence?’ I simply went to the Scriptures… to “Prove or Disprove”… their presupposition.

(Romans 8:14-15-16) For = as many = as are led by = the Spirit of God, = they are = the sons of God.
(Rom 8:15) For you = have not received the spirit of bondage = again to fear, = but = you have received = the Spirit of adoption = by which we cry, = Abba [Daddy], Father!
(Rom 8:16) The Spirit Himself = bears witness = with our spirit = that we are = the children of God.

IF you will simply… read “ALL” of Romans chapter eight… you will see the position of the “True Child of God = and = his or her relationship with both God and Jesus through the workings of God’s Holy Spirit. This entire chapter verifies our position as a… ‘True Child of God’. It is the fulfillment of John 7:37-39 as Christ Jesus promised the Holy Spirit! Please stop and read… “Romans 8:All”… over before reading any more of this blog.

People are like sheep… and will follow the lead of their ‘Pastors’. Many of whom… “Do Not” believe… in the… “Complete Authority of the Bible”… for the Believer. Perhaps if you will see what Christ Jesus said in… “Matthew 4:4 & Luke 4:4”… you will understand this point. Christ Jesus simply quoted ‘God’s Mandate’ from… “Deuteronomy 8:3”.

The next question… is to ask: “Is Satan’s Work… ‘in or out’… of the Churches?” I will use the Scripture… to answer this question. It is “Both”. He has the world blinded to the Gospel… and he works in the very churches… primarily by substituting… “Experience”… for the Word of God. Say it isn’t so? How then do so many False Preachers & Teaches… lead so many astray?

(2Corinthains 4:3-4) So if = our gospel is veiled, = it is veiled = to those = who are dying.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, = the god of this world [Satan] = has blinded = the minds = of those = who do not believe = to keep them from = seeing the light = of the glorious gospel of Christ, = Who is = the image of God.

(2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) Such people are = “false apostles”, = dishonest workers = who are masquerading as = apostles of Christ.
(2Co 11:14) And no wonder, = since “Satan” himself = masquerades = as an ‘angel of light’.
(2Co 11:15) So it is not surprising = if = his servants also = masquerade = as servants of righteousness. = Their doom will match their deeds!

Those are “Exposing” verses… that the average Church attendee my never hear from the Pulpit. ‘Satan’ does not want the people to know about how he works in Churches and how he does it. Consequently if one… does not study the Scriptures on their own… they too, many be fooled and deceive by… “Preaching that ‘is not’ based on, the Complete Authority of the Bible!”

How then does One… know if what is being taught is… “Truth or Error?” How about a temporal world example first. The News… hardly ever tells all the Truth. Most of it is so… “Politically In-Correct”… that they cannot discern the ‘Real Truth’. So it is that some outlets like …‘Fox News and Rush Limbaugh’… will really tell us what ‘The ‘Truth’ is: by exposing… ‘The Lies!’ This parallel can be seen in the Church also.

(Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and = to the Testimony! = If = they = do not speak = according to = this Word, = it is because = no light = is in them.

(Acts 17:11) These people = were more receptive = than those = in Thessalonica. = They were very willing = to receive the message, = and = every day = they = carefully examined = the Scriptures = to see if = those things were so.

When was the last time… you heard a message at Church… and took a copy home and Proved It… with the Scriptures? I had someone say to me… ‘That is a lot of work and besides what do we pay the Preacher for Anyway?’ May I simply ‘Ask’… “Where is Your Responsibility to Christ and His Word?”

My answer was… “When we all stand before Christ Jesus [2Corinthians 5:10-11]… and are Judged by the Word [John 12:44-to50]… So will “You” say to “Christ Jesus”… I ‘simply just’… believed my Pastor!” …NOT! You Pastor will ‘Not’ then say… I told them what to Believe!

Ok, so what does… all this have to do with ‘Tongues’ in the NT Church? As we have seen, Satan comes as… ‘An angel of light to deceive the Blind’… But does he also work in ‘False Religions?’ How can they be false if we all Believe in God? Because they are ‘Not All’… the “God of the Bible”. Is their belief in their… god [small-g]… Wrong?

“Absolutely Yes!”... There are ‘Tongues’ being practiced… in MOST of the “False Religions” of the World. ALL Major World Religions have ‘Tongues’ in their religious services. That is Not to say All… in Each and Every Service! The Shinto in Japan, = the Islamic in most of Asia, = the African Tribal Religions, = the Buddhist monks = and the list goes on and on and on!

To understand “Tongues”… from the ‘Biblical Perspective’… one must examine the Scriptures to see if there was in fact… a practice in the Early Church… and to what ‘Extent’. Also did these… “Sign Gifts” which include healing and miracles… continue or were they done away with. Did you notice I said… “Sign Gifts?” These were used… To Validate… not only the Message but the Messenger!

Today there are… No NT Apostles. There are only “12 NT Apostles” as validated in… “Matthew 19:28”… by ‘Christ Jesus Himself’. Judas as we all know defected and was replaced by Paul as validated by… “Galatians 1:1, 1Corinthians 1:1”… and other verses. If someone calls themselves a NT Apostle… he is a “Liar!”

(Acts 2:4-to-8) And = they were = all = filled of the Holy Spirit, = and = began to speak in = other languages, = as the Spirit = gave them utterance.
(Acts 2:5) And = dwelling at Jerusalem = there were Jews, = devout men = out of every nation under heaven.
(Acts 2:6) But = this sound occurring, = the multitude came together = and = were confounded, = because they each = = HEARD = = them speaking = in = his own dialect.
(Acts 2:7) And = they were all amazed = and = marveled, = saying to one another, = Behold, = are not these = who speak = all Galileans?
(Acts 2:8) And = how do we each = = HEAR = = in our own = dialect = in which = we were born?

Simply Put… This was a “Hearing Miracle!” Most of those strangers that came to Jerusalem to celebrate the annual Passover… were from other countries. In Acts 2:9-10-11… there were at least… “18 other Languages”… stated there… yet each man… “Heard”… in his own mother tongue [Language]. They too were… “Known Languages”… as stated by the Text. They “Were NOT… Gibberish”… as practiced by so many of the Churches today.

Do you Obey… the “Word of God”… in your practice of Tongues? I have visited many Churches that practice Tongues… and… find that they Do Not! First… do you “Know”… what The Scriptures says about the… “How To of Tongues?” If you do not “Know”… how then are you practicing them? Perhaps a short look at… The Scriptures?

(1Corinthians 14:33) For God = is not = the author = of confusion, = but of peace, = as in = all churches = of the saints.

Please take out your Bible… and read ‘Out Loud’… 1Corinthains 14:1-to-33. The Re-Read verses… “26 – 27 – 28”. Are those “INSTRUCTIONS” being… “Followed and Obeyed”… in your church in your practice of Tongues? If Not… Why Not? If you are not practicing those verses… then Perhaps… ‘Satan’… is working there?

A Pastor asked me… “We practice Tongues in our Church”… and I am concerned about that! I simply asked him, ‘Are there those there that Claim to have that Gift?’ He replied, ‘Too Many!’ I simply told him… “HOW”… he could validate “IF” they were… “Real Holy Spirit Tongues”… or just plain Gibberish or even Satanic Tongues.

Take a Tape Recorder… and you and two others [Matthew 18:16] in the same room… ‘Record those Tongues’. He did so with many that claimed to have that Gift! Then I asked him… how many have the “Gift of Interpretation? [1Corinthains 14:26-27-28]. Have them ‘One by One’… each come into the room… “Separately”… and “Interpret the Tongue”… and Record their ‘Interpretation’. Compare… what was said… and what was interpreted… with The Scriptures!”

Most Churches that I… have visited have those that Interpret… ‘In the King James Bible Version!’ Wow! The Holy Spirit does not use A Particular Translation = JKV or the NIV or the NASB. He uses “The Truth” of the Word of God! You see ‘Most Churches’… that Practice Tongues… do not do so using… 1Corinthains 14:1-to-33… nor do they Validate the Tongues… as I have suggested above. By the way… that Pastor left his Church for another without tongues.

(James 1:22) Keep on = being = doers of = The Word, = and = not merely = hearers = who deceive = themselves.

Once again… may I take you back to… “The Complete Authority of the Word of God”… for the Real Born Again Believer? It is to be our “TRUTH!” “Nothing More”… “Nothing Less!” “Experience”… cannot be substituted for… “The Truth!” Again Satan will infiltrate the Church to cause Confusion. Remember… “1Corinthains 14:33?”

Have you ever seen a… Church Sign… “Full Gospel Church?” What they are saying is that ‘Their Church’… has the ‘Real Truth’… and ‘All’ other Churches… “Do Not Preach the ‘Full’ [Total] Gospel!” They are indicative of the… “Gnostics”… a cult that sprung up in the early Church Age… to add confusion to the ‘Pure Gospel’. It is no different today!

There is a Battle… now ongoing for… “The Truth of the Word of God, The Bible.” Most do not… “Read & Study”… their Bibles enough to even know… “Truth from Error!” How about You? If you have not in the Past… Will YOU = now dedicate some time and effort to… “Know and Study… the Word of God?”

(2Timothy 2:15) Do your best = to present yourself = to God = as an approved = worker = who has nothing = to be ashamed of, = handling = the Word of Truth = with precision.

(2Timothy 3:16-17) All Scripture = is God-breathed = and = is useful for = Teaching, = for Reproof, = for Correction, = and = for training in righteousness,
(2Tim 3:17) so that = the man [or woman] of God = may be complete = and = thoroughly equipped = for every good work.

Teaching = One Way.
Reproof = Wrong Way.
Correction = Turn Around.
Instruction = God’s Way – ‘Only’.

“Blindness – 101”…Blog.

“Blindness – 101”…Blog.

Have you ever been… ‘Blind?’ Once when I was in the workplace I got a piece of metal in my eye and was temporally blinded in that eye. Besides the potentially sight crippling injury, I had ‘terrors’ about… going through life with only ‘one’ eye. After being taken to the doctor and the removal of the metal piece, I had to keep my eye patched for two more days. It was only temporary and… I thankfully… regained my sight in that eye.

Most of us… take our vision for granted. I had “20-10” vision almost all my life, with is better than the normal “20-20” vision. But as I aged, my eyes suffered from “Presbyopia” as we all do as we age. Corrective lenses are often needed… to refocus what we see… onto our optic nerves in the back of our eyes. Some choose glasses, some contact lenses and some “Surgery”… that has had some dubious results.

Did you ever… think what it would be like to be Blind? I have a friend who is a ‘Seminole Indian’ who was born blind. He graduated from Stetson Law School, as an attorney for the Seminole Indian Tribe. He did not allow his disability to keep him from becoming an attorney. Some years later, he was shot and killed in a dispute. How low does a human being have to stoop …to kill a blind person?

Do you know about… Helen Keller? She was not only ‘Blind’ but ‘Deaf’ also. Perhaps you saw the movie about her life staring Patty Duke, “The Miracle Worker?” Her life is a series of accomplishments that go way beyond anything that we would experience. Her books are well worth reading… if you would like a break from… Entertainment TV or Videos. She even wrote in longhand.

In the above story… there is a “Life Lesson” that may be learned through this parody of “Seven Blind men and an Elephant”. You see each of us has preconceived ‘ideas and concepts’ that we have learned… as we grew up. When I was a child we celebrated ‘Christmas’, but a Jewish friend of mine celebrated ‘Hanukkah’. He got presents for 7-days, while I only got a few on Christmas! …LOL!

So too in life… we are ‘Blinded’ to the world about us. Most complain about, ‘What they don’t Have’… while others in this land and overseas often have… very little. If you have ever traveled to Mexico City and gone out to see the “Mayan Pyramids” you have to drive through the Slum area. The poverty there is so bad that they have to drive in a truck with ‘potable water’… with armed guards. Many of those people exist on less than $60 Mexican Dollars a year.

We often Choose… ‘Blindness instead of Sight’. When was the last time you saw someone doing something wrong… and did Not say anything? You may say… ‘It’s none of my business!’ In the news you may often hear of someone on their Cell with the “9-11” operator reporting an accident. That is taking an ‘active role’… instead of the passive one. Still others only have time for themselves and not for others.

Last week… I was in Wal-Mart shopping. Have you ever shopped when there was a ‘Kid Screaming’, that they wanted ‘Fruit Loops’… and their mother would not buy it for them? As I went down the aisle I simply said… “Excuse me little girl, there is ‘NO Screaming’ aloud in Wal-Mart!” She immediately became quiet. Her mother took the Cheerios and placed them in the basket and whispered… ‘Thank You!’

Did you know… that ‘Most’ are “Blinded” to the Truth of the Bible? Well… ‘It is just another book’… you may say! That just demonstrates… “Your Blindness” to… The Spiritual Truth. Say it isn’t so? Why would so “Very Many” be against… “The Bible”… IF… it is just a book and ‘nothing’ more? Do you hate ‘Orange Elephants?’ Of course not… because there is no such thing!

(2Corinthians 4:3-4) So if = our gospel is hidden, = it is veiled to those = who are dying.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, = the god of this world [Satan] = has blinded = the minds of those = who do not believe = to keep them from seeing = the light = of the glorious gospel = of Christ, = Who is = the image of God.

Satan has Blinded… your ‘mind and heart’ to the… “Glory of God and the Truth of His Word”, The Bible! How can that be? Because God said so in His Word… and He God… Cannot Lie! Each of us have been given some… ‘Spiritual Light’ and ‘Awakening’. What we have done with that “Spiritual Information”… determines your amount of… ‘Spiritual Blindness’.

You have ‘Either’… Rejected it and did not want any more …‘OR’… you have Accepted it and… are looking for more!

Well I go to Church… may be your reply! I am a good person! I don’t do wrong and I pay my taxes. None of that will make you in… ‘Right Standing’ with God, the God of the Bible! Do you meet all ‘His Standards?’ Do you even read His Word… to learn more of Him and what He has for your Life? You eat bodily food daily… but do you take ‘Spiritual Food’… for your ‘soul’… from God’s Word… “Daily?”

(Matthew 13:10-11-12) Then the disciples came = and = said to Jesus, = "Why do You = speak to people = in parables?"
(Matt 13:11) He answered them, = "You have been given knowledge = about the secrets = of the kingdom of heaven, = but = it hasn't been given = to them.
(Matt 13:12) For to anyone = who has something, = more will be given, = and = he will have more than enough. = But = from the one = who doesn't have anything, = even what = he has = will be taken away = from him.

Do Criminals seek the Police…? Absolutely ‘Not’… as they want to commit more crimes! So it is with the… ‘Spiritually Blind’… they do not want “God’s Truth” found in His Word, The Bible. But for those seeking “The Truth”… more ‘Truth and Light’… will be revealed to them. Did you catch the “Key”… in the above verses… Matt 13:12? Those rejecting the Light… will Lose the very Light given them!

(John 8:12) Later on = Jesus spoke to them again, = saying, = "I am = the light = of the world. = The one = who follows Me = will never = walk in darkness, = but will have = the light of life."

Well I may believe… ‘Some of what you say’… but I am not “Spiritually Blind!” You know I go to church twice a week! Perhaps then may I ask…? How much time do you spend in God’s Word, The Bible… ‘Reading His Word’… and… ‘Obeying His Word?’ Well I am so busy with Church and its activities… I just don’t have time! Get this… you have time for Church… but “Not”… For GOD’S ‘Word?’ Something is very, WRONG…!

I have been told… that I have gone ‘to medaling’… by posting blogs like this. Well may I simply say that I care for your ‘Spiritual Condition!’ We all live in a world that… “Is Not Getting Better, but Worse!” If you and I are to survive in this climate of “Spiritual Darkness”… we need more light from God’s Word, the Bible.

(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.

Isn’t it about time… that you ‘Made some Time’… for God in His Word? Try substituting some TV Time… to spend some time in God’s Word... “Alone!” He will reveal Himself… Only to those… that are looking for Him! What would you trade in this temporal world for… “Spiritual Light?” You can find that Light… in His Word! Or would you instead… keep your Spiritual Blindness?

(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 [YOU!] = the Son = will reveal Him.
(Mat 11:28) Come to Me = all you who labor = and = are heavy laden, = and = I will give you rest.
(Mat 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.
(Mat 11:30) For My yoke = is easy, = and = My burden is light.
