“More Time in ‘2011’ – 101” ….Blog.
Did you make a… “New Year’s Resolution”… last night or this morning? Many will and will break it and “Not = ‘Start Over’ = Again!” Remember when a child first starts to walk? When they can finally balance themselves… they will inevitably fall down… ‘but’ will get back up and try it again! So it is with News Year’s Resolutions… if you blow it; ‘Simply’… Start “AGAIN” and “Again” and “again!” This year, I purposed “Not” to watch TV or Videos… till I finish writing what I have intended to… by the Grace of God. I also want to lose some weight! But don’t we all?
*** (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.
*** (1Corinthians 14:40) Let = ‘All’ things = be done decently = and = in order.
“New Year’s Resolutions? – 101” …Blog.
Each & Every day… “YOU” have the ‘Same’… “1440–minutes”… that we ‘Each’ have! None of us is given more or less… but some spend their time; more efficiently than others. This discipline can be learned and acted upon; by no one else… but ‘You!’ Surely, some of it for sleep, some for work, some for relaxation and some for other pursuits. Amazing how Americans ‘edit’ their Time Schedules for… Super Bowl or the World Series or some other ‘Sports Play Off!’ Everything else is… ‘Set Aside’… in order to be ‘entertained’ by athletes… who ‘will not’ subject themselves to; the same drug testing as the Olympic Athletes! If you ‘cheat’ to win… is it ‘really’ winning?
*** (Psalms 90:11-to-14) Who knows the power of Your anger? = And as Your fear is, = so is Your wrath.
(Psa 90:12) So teach us = to number = our days, = so that we may bring = a heart of wisdom.
(Psa 90:13) Return, O Jehovah! = How long? = And give pity to Your servants.
(Psa 90:14) Satisfy us early = with Your mercy, = so that we may rejoice = and be glad = all our days.
How will you spend ‘your’… “1440”… today? Each morning I open my Bible and spend up to an hour… Reading & Studying… God’s Holy Word! Even when I ‘was’ working… “8-10-12” hour days, I went to bed early… and then got up one hour early for work. This discipline in God’s Holy Word… the Bible… has given me those… “True Riches”… and that “True Biblical Faith”… spoken about in the Scriptures. They are there for ‘you’ too… as part of the… “Cost of Discipleship!”
*** (Romans 10:17) Then faith = comes by hearing, = and = hearing = by the Word of God.
*** (Luke 18:8) I [Jesus] = say to you that = He [God] = will avenge them speedily. = Yet = when the Son of Man comes, = shall He find = [True Biblical] Faith = on the earth?
*** (Matthew 24:37) But = as the days of Noah = were, = so shall be the coming = of the Son of Man.
*** (Genesis 6:5) And Jehovah = saw that the wickedness of man = was ‘great’ in the earth, = and = every imagination = of the thoughts = of his heart = was ‘only’ evil = ‘continually’.
Discipleship is a Discipline… that God will give you; His Grace & Mercy for… “If”… you will use it! Many ‘call’ themselves Christians and yet ‘do not’ have the ‘disciple’ mindset. Yes Lord… What would You have me to Do? Speak to John…? Speak to Mary… about “You?” Share those “Special Scriptures”… that ‘touch’ the Needs; of the Body of Christ…? Which Ones… “Lord?” Knowing the “Holy Word of God”… takes time and study… “DAILY!” Spirituality ‘does not’ come overnight. You do eat ‘Daily’… don’t You? How about ‘feeding’ yourself; with that Spiritual Food… the Word… “Daily?”
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) For this cause = we do ‘not’ faint; = but though our outward man is perishing, = yet the inward man = is being renewed = “DAY by DAY”.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these = were ‘more’ noble [valiant] = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they ‘received’ the Word = with ‘all’ readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see “IF” = those things were so [or Not!].
*** (Luke 16:10-to-13) He who is ‘faithful’ = in the least = is also ‘faithful’ = in much. = And he who is ‘unjust’ = in the least = is also ‘unjust’ = in much.
(Luke 16:11) Therefore = if you have ‘not’ been faithful = in the unrighteous mammon, = Who will entrust = the True Riches = to you? [Psalms 119:97-to-104]
(Luke 16:12) And if you = have ‘not’ been faithful = in that which is another's, = who shall give you that = which is your own?
(Luke 16:13) No servant = can serve ‘two’ masters. = For either he will ‘hate’ the one = and love the other, = or else = he will hold to the one = and despise the other. = You ‘cannot’ = serve God = and mammon.
*** (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’.
(2Tim 2:16) However, = avoid ‘pointless’ discussions. = For people will become = more and more = ungodly,

Many of Jesus’ disciples… could ‘not’ handle His teaching and left following Him. So it is today; many when they are exposed to “Biblical Truth”… cannot handle it. Simply read “1Corinthians”… and see what is meant by that? Why do you think so ‘many’ wrongly believe; that ‘one’ can lose their Salvation? They do not ‘know the’ Scriptures… and furthermore… ‘Do Not’ want to ‘Learn Them!’ They ‘say’ they… “Love Jesus”… but ‘do not’ Love His Holy Word! How is that Possible…? It is “NOT”…! “If” you Love Jesus… “Then’… you will… Love His Holy Word = “Because”… He is the “Living Word of God!”
*** (1John 2:19) They = went out = from us, = but = they were ‘not’ of us; = for if = they were of us, = they would have continued with us. = But they went out = so that it might be revealed = that they were ‘not’ all = of us.
*** (John 6:65-to-69) And He [Jesus] said, = Because of this = I said to you = that ‘no one’ can come to Me = unless it was ‘given’ to him = from My Father [God].
(Joh 6:66) From this time ‘many’ of His disciples = went back into the things behind, = and walked no more with Him.
(Joh 6:67) Then Jesus said = to the Twelve, = Do you also wish to go away?
(Joh 6:68) Then Simon Peter answered Him, = Lord, = to Whom shall we go? = You have the Words of eternal life.
(Joh 6:69) And we have ‘believed’ = and have ‘known’ = that You are the Christ, = the Son of the living God.
*** (Matthew 28:16) And = the eleven disciples went into Galilee, = to the mountain = where Jesus had appointed them.
(Matt 28:17) And = when they saw Him, = they ‘worshiped’ Him. = But = some ‘doubted’.

OK… right now… HOW will you spend your… “1440”… today!
It is yours… to spend how you see fit! Some of it… you will be told ‘how’ to spend by your employer or by your mate. But the rest… is yours to spend… how “You” see fit. Spend it on yourself… or spend some of it to; Know Jesus and His Holy Word…? No… I am not telling you to spend ‘all’ your time for Him! But simply ask Him… to help you… to be “Accountable to Him”… to be “Available to Him”… that He may ‘use’ you… for His Kingdom Work…? Invest in His Ministry… that you may have… eternal rewards…?
*** (Luke 24:44) Then He [Jesus] said to them, = "These are My Words that I spoke to you = while I was still with you = that ‘everything’ written about Me = in the law of Moses, = the Prophets, = and the Psalms = had to be fulfilled."
(Luke 24:45) Then He opened their minds = so that they might = come to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) He said to them, = "Thus it is written, = that the Christ = was to suffer = and to rise = from the dead = on the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and = that repentance = and = forgiveness of sins = is to be proclaimed = in His Name = to all the nations, = beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) You are = witnesses = of these things.
“1440”…? How much will… Time… will you ‘tithe’ back to Him; as a “Love Offering” and a “Free Will Offering”…? Remember IF you Love Jesus… you will Love His Holy Word!
