“Strongholds – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

“Strongholds – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

*** (2Corinthians 10:3-to-6) For though walking about in flesh, we ‘do not’ war according to flesh.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but ‘mighty’ through God; to the pulling down of strongholds,
(2Cor 10:5) casting down imaginations and ‘every’ high thing that exalts itself ‘against’ the knowledge of God, and bringing ‘into captivity’ every thought into the ‘obedience’ of Christ;
(2Cor 10:6) and having ‘readiness’ to avenge all disobedience [Proverbs 28:13 & 1John 1:5-to-10], ‘when’ your obedience [James 1:22] is fulfilled.

Continuing with this “Strongholds”… discussion, let us look ‘first’; at the Strongholds of Sin in our lives; ‘After’ we have been Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God. Our fallen nature and through processes has been replaced; and continues to be replaced; by our “Obedience” to God’s Holy Word!  Because, the Holy Spirit is the “Power Source” from God; for ‘all’ righteous living comes from Him. Our ‘continuing’ growth in Christ; is ‘dependent’ on that ‘Spiritual Growth’. There have been some; who have ‘said’; they are Christian… and yet have “Never Been Born Again!” Ever wonder about those who; ‘never’ seem to ‘Grow Spiritually’…? Or even those who have ‘once professed’; “Faith in Christ”, only to return to the World and its “Temporary Pleasures?” They really didn’t ‘belong’ to Him; but are as the chameleon; continually changing to fit in; hiding in plain sight. Remember, ‘Satan comes as an Angel of Light!’ [2Corinthians 11:13-14-15]

*** (Colossians 4:14) Luke, the beloved physician, and “Demas”, greet you.

*** (2Timothy 4:10) For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and he has departed to Thessalonica. Crescens went to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.

*** (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.

*** (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.

*** (Hebrews 12:6-7-8) For the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and He punishes [spanks] 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? [No!]
(Heb 12:8) Now if you are ‘without’ any discipline, in which all [say they are] sons share, then you are illegitimate [Bastard] and ‘not’ His sons.

Those who are “Truly Born Again”… are ‘tearing down’; those “Strongholds of Sin in their Minds!” Human Sexuality is probably the hardest one to tear down. Any media, both visual and auditory is ‘replete’ with Sexuality! It is the main commodity of most peoples. America is the world’s largest exporter of “Pornography!” As a result… “Abortion” has Killed Over “55,000,000 – Million “Innocent Babies”, in their Mothers’ Wombs. America is the worlds’ ‘Largest Exporter of Abortion!’ We readily watch the Sexuality on TV, Videos and live entertainment… and discard  the “Holiness of God” and His ‘requirements’ for a “Sexuality Pure Society!” Virgins, both male & female… are hard to find. And yet, STD’S [Sexuality Transmitted Diseases] permeate humans… just as fluent; as the ‘Common Cold!’

*** (Job 31:1) I made a ‘covenant’ with my eyes; how then could I look [lustfully] upon a virgin?

*** (2Peter 2:14) having eyes ‘full of adultery’ and never ‘ceasing’ from sin, alluring unstable souls, having a heart ‘exercised’ with covetousness. They are ‘cursed’ children

*** (1Corinthains 5:1-2) It is actually reported that sexual immorality ‘exists’ among you, and of a kind that is ‘not found’ even among the gentiles. A man is ‘actually’ living with his father's wife!
(1Cor 5:2) And you are being ‘arrogant’; instead of being filled with grief and seeing to it that the man who did this is ‘removed’ from among you.

“Respect – For ‘WOMEN’? – 101” …Blog.

Even in your “Ears”… those Songs; contaminate and build “Strongholds” in your mind! Remember, “Every Song is a Sermon!” Say it isn’t so…? Remember the Rolling Stones song… “I can’t get no satisfaction?” Since it came out, “1965”… there have been far worse songs! Evil ‘never’ stands still or retreats! It ‘only’ gets “Worse!” That secular music stronghold… is as bad as the [Pseudo] Christian Music! Crossover music came from the ‘Secular’ to the [Supposed] ‘Sacred!’ No one said it was wrong; because they had been “Wrongly Falsely Told”… this is the way to win others to Christ! As an ‘Angel of Light’… Satan has his camp; in the very churches! Ever wonder where [Pseudo] ‘Christian Rock’ came from…? Or Contemporary Worship… that sounds like a Rock Concert…? Do any of those Songs… have the “Theology and Teaching” about God; as that ‘Jewish Hymnbook’… “The Psalms”… have in the Bible…? Absolutely Not!

*** (Isaiah 14:12-13-14) How you are fallen from the heavens, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
(Isa 14:13) For you have said in your heart, I will go up to the heavens, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.
(Isa 14:14) I will go up above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.

*** (Ezekiel 28:13-14-15) You have been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the ruby, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the emerald, and gold. The workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.
(Eze 28:14) You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy height of God where you were; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
(Eze 28:15) You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you.

“Fallen Music – 101”

*** (1John 5:19) And we know that we are of God, and the ‘whole’ world, lies in ‘Evil’.

This “Brainwashing”, for “Evil Strongholds”… continues ‘without’; rest or respite. Meeting with Jesus in His Holy Word… “Daily”… is the only way to ‘overcome’ this onslaught of evil. Replacing the Ungodly… with the Holy! Casting Down Imaginations… and Every Thought that Wars against the Knowledge of Christ!  Holy Brainwashing is the only way to overcome this Satanic onslaught. Allowing your Mind to become the… “Repository of Truth = The Holy Word & Truth of God”… will allow you to take the Whole Armor of God; as your… ‘Moment by Moment… “Holy, Christ Like: Mindset!”

*** (Philippians 2:5) “Let” this mind be in you, which was ‘also’ in Christ Jesus:

*** (Rom 12:1) 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.
(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.

*** (Joh 3:30) He [Jesus] must increase, but I must decrease.

*** (Luke 17:10) So likewise you, when you shall have done ‘all those things’ which are commanded you, ‘say’, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that, which was ‘our’ duty to do.

*** (Matthew 18:7-8-9) Woe to the world because of offenses! For it is ‘necessary’ that offenses come; but ‘woe’ to that man ‘by whom’ the offense comes!
(Mat 18:8) And if your hand or your foot causes you to offend, cut them off and throw them from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
(Mat 18:9) And if your eye offends you, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire.

Do these verses, “Matthew 18:7-8-9”… ‘Teach’ you to cut off your hand or foot; or pluck your eye out; “OR”… it they will lead you into Hell…? “Absolutely… Not!” They are simply a… “Bible Word Picture” for; ‘Where’ You “GO”… with your Feet; ‘What’ You “DO”… with your Hands; and ‘What’ You “SEE”… with your Eyes! It is simply a word picture of… “Your Motivation & Agenda!” Remember in the last blog: “The Body ‘ONLY’ Does… what the ‘Mind’ Wants”…? Those “Strongholds” simply allow the “Evil”; or your “Good”… to take you ‘where’, your desire is. You use your, Hands, Feet & Eyes… “To ‘Serve’ Yourself”… Or… “To ‘Serve’ God!”

“Strongholds – 101”…Blog. [1/?]

*** (2Corinthians 10:3-to-6) For though walking about in flesh, we ‘do not’ war according to flesh.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but ‘mighty’ through God; to the pulling down of strongholds,
(2Cor 10:5) casting down imaginations and ‘every’ high thing that exalts itself ‘against’ the knowledge of God, and bringing ‘into captivity’ every thought into the ‘obedience’ of Christ;
(2Cor 10:6) and having ‘readiness’ to avenge all disobedience [Proverbs 28:13 & 1John 1:5-to-10], ‘when’ your obedience [James 1:22] is fulfilled.

What is a “Stronghold”…? Did you know that “Ft. Knox”… is a stronghold and a ‘gold’ depository that is defended & secure…? It is a ‘designated fortress’… meant to keep everything Forbidden; without permissible entrance. The ‘Stronghold’ is a… “Word Picture”… of our ‘Minds & Hearts!’ ‘Before’ being Born Again by Gods’ Holy Spirit… we had strongholds of the Flesh and its desires. They consist of… “The Lust of the Flesh; The Lust of the Eye; and the Pride of Life!” Did you know ‘Poor’ people can have a ‘Pride of Life’… as well as the ‘Rich’ people? Satan does “Not” have any ‘New Strategy’… just the same old one; Questioning You with… “Has GOD really said = ‘You’ Shall Not”…?

*** (1John 2:15-16-17) Do ‘not’ love the world, ‘nor’ the things in the world. If ‘anyone’ loves the world, the love of the Father ‘is not in’ him,
(1Jn 2:16) ‘because’ all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is ‘not’ of the Father, but is ‘of’ the world.
(1Jn 2:17) And the world passes away, and the lust of it, ‘but’ he who does the will of God ‘abides forever’.

*** (Genesis 3:1) Now the serpent 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?

*** (1John 3:4-5) Everyone who ‘practices’ sin; also practices lawlessness, for sin is lawlessness.
(1Jn 3:5) And you know that He [Christ] was revealed ‘that’ He might take away our sins, and in Him is ‘no’ sin.

Although this “Battle” is in our ‘mind & heart’… our flesh only ‘follows’ the instructions of the mind! No one is ever ‘forced’ to SIN… it is a ‘choice’; of your Free Will. There is ‘no’ such thing as an… ‘Addition!’ It is simply a… ‘Repeated Choice’… to ‘Enforce’ the Stronghold of; “Wrong Decisions = that ‘Violate’; the Holy Word of God!” Remember; “An Excuse is the Skin of a Reason… Stuffed with a Lie! We will always “Justify our Actions” in our “Minds”… before allowing our bodies to; Follow those Instructions…! No one may or can say… “I could not help myself!” It is simply an Excuse to… ‘Openly or Secretly’… “Disobey”… God’s Holy Word…!

*** (James 1:13-to-16) When someone is tempted, he should ‘not’ say, "I am being tempted by God," because God ‘cannot’ be tempted by evil, ‘nor’ does He tempt anyone.
(Jas 1:14) Instead, ‘each’ person is tempted by his ‘own’ desire, being ‘lured’ and ‘trapped’ by it.
(Jas 1:15) When that desire becomes ‘pregnant’, it gives ‘birth’ to sin; and when that sin ‘grows up’, it gives birth to ‘death’.
(Jas 1:16) Do ‘not’ be deceived, my dear brothers.

*** (Romans 6:15-16) What then? Shall we sin, ‘because’ we are not under the law, but under grace? “God forbid!”
(Rom 6:16) Do you not know, that to whom you ‘yield’ yourselves; servants ‘to obey’, his servants you are ‘to whom’ you obey; ‘whether’ of sin unto death, ‘or’ of obedience unto righteousness?

*** (Luke 6:46) "Why do you; keep calling Me [Jesus] 'Lord, Lord,' but ‘don't do’ what I tell you?

*** (Job 9:20) If I ‘justify’ myself, my own mouth ‘shall’ condemn me; though I [think I] am perfect, He shall ‘declare’ me perverse.

*** (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart is ‘deceitful’ above all things, and ‘desperately’ wicked; ‘who’ can know it?
(Jer 17:10) I Jehovah [God] ‘search’ the heart, I ‘try’ the reins, even ‘to give to’ each man according to his ways, according to ‘the fruit’ of his doings.

Those “Strongholds of Sin” before ‘One’ was… Born Again by God’s Holy Spirit; are still there after Salvation. That is why the Holy Word of God is so very important! When one comes to Christ they are; “Positionally ‘Perfect’ in Christ”… But their ‘Practice in Christ’… “Often”; lags far behind! That is what & why… “Growing in the Grace & Knowledge and Obedience to Christ Jesus”… is ‘All’ about! If you ‘do not’… “Read & Study”… God’s Holy Word; you ‘cannot’ Grow in Grace and the “Understanding of His Will”; for your life! You ‘will not’ be available for Him to use you to Witness of His Love, Mercy & Judgment… to the Lost!

*** (2Peter 3:15-to-18) Think of our Lord's ‘patience’ as salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also ‘wrote’ to you according to the ‘wisdom’ given him.
(2Pe 3:16) He speaks about this subject in ‘all’ his letters. Some things in them are ‘hard to understand’, which ‘ignorant’ and ‘unstable’ people distort; to their ‘own’ destruction, as they do the ‘rest’ of the Scriptures.
(2Pe 3:17) And so, dear friends, ‘since’ you already know these things, ‘continually’ be on your guard; ‘not’ to be carried away by the ‘deception’ of lawless people, lest you fall from your secure position.
(2Pe 3:18) Instead, ‘continue’ to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Glory belongs to Him ‘both’ now and on that eternal day! Amen.

*** (2Timothy 3:13-to-17) But evil men and seducers will ‘go forward’ to worse; ‘deceiving’ and ‘being deceived’.
(2Ti 3:14) But ‘continue’ in the things that you have ‘learned’ and have been ‘assured’ of, knowing from ‘Whom’ you have learned them [John 14:26-27],
(2Ti 3:15) and that from a child; you have ‘known’ the Holy Scriptures, which are ‘able’ to make you ‘wise’ to salvation ‘through’ faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Ti 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed, and is ‘profitable’ for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness,
(2Ti 3:17) that the man of God may be ‘perfected’, thoroughly ‘furnished’ to every good work.

*** (John 15:1-2-3) I [Jesus] am the True Vine, and My Father [God] is the Vinedresser.
(Joh 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.
(Joh 15:3) Now you are ‘clean’ through the Word; which I have spoken to you.

*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) Study ‘earnestly’ to present yourself ‘approved’ to God, a workman that ‘does not’ need to be ashamed, ‘rightly dividing’ the Word of Truth.
(2Ti 2:16) But ‘shun’ profane, ‘vain’ babblings, for they will ‘increase’ to more ungodliness.

*** (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.

Those “Strongholds of Sin”… in your “Mind & Heart”; Must be… “Torn Down” and “Changed Out: for the “Strongholds of Righteousness!” “All”, who come to Christ… “Must be Retrained”… in their minds;… “To the Obedience of Christ!” What our unredeemed minds permitted and excused… “Everything!” Our ‘Renewed Minds’; fulfill our ‘obedience’ to Christ and to His Holy Word. We ‘exchange’ those ‘Things of Sin’… for the Glory of our “Righteousness in Christ!” He alone… ‘makes’ us righteous before the Father… and He alone ‘gives’ us His; Grace, Mercy & Love… to communicate Him [Jesus]; to the “Lost & Dying!” [John 10:16]

*** (2Corinthains 4:5-6-7) For we ‘do not’ preach ourselves, but “Christ Jesus as Lord [Boss]”, and ourselves your ‘servants’ for Jesus' sake.
(2Co 4:6) For it is God, Who said, "Out of darkness Light shall shine;" Who shone in our hearts ‘to give’ the brightness ‘of’ the knowledge ‘of’ the glory of God ‘in’ the face of Jesus Christ.
(2Co 4:7) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the ‘excellence’ of the power may be of ‘God’ and “Not of us”;

*** (Philippians 2:13-14-15) For it is God, Who works in you ‘both’ to will and ‘to do’ of His good pleasure.
(Php 2:14) Do ‘all’ things without murmurings and disputings,
(Php 2:15) so that you ‘may be’ blameless and harmless, the sons of God, ‘without rebuke’, in the ‘midst’ of a crooked and perverse nation. Among these you ‘shine as lights’ in the world,

Perhaps, if you will allow me… ‘share’ a personal experience from my life? Some long time ago… I was ‘reading’ through the OT. I came upon… “2Chronicles 12:14”.  I was convicted by the Holy Spirit… that I ‘was not’ preparing my heart; before studying the Holy Word of God! I confessed and started again; a ‘new’ pattern of practice. Then I was ‘reminded’ of the NT verse “1Corinthians 11:26-to-34”. If God wanted us clean in our hearts & minds; before physical communion as an ‘Act of Worship’… didn’t He ‘Also Want”… the same in ‘our’; Study of Him in His Holy Word? “Absolutely… YES!” Later on as I was reading in… “Ezra 7:10”… and it ‘confirmed’ this; “Stronghold of Righteousness”… that Christ wanted in my life! Yes, before ‘any’ spiritual practice of any kind… Bible Study, Prayer, Praise and “Yes”… even ‘before’ Church!

*** (2Chronicles 12:14) And he ‘did’ the evil; ‘because’ he did not ‘prepare’ his heart to seek Jehovah.

*** (1Corinthians 11:26-to-32) For "as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you show" the Lord's death until He shall come.
(1Co 11:27) So that ‘whoever’ shall eat this bread and drink this cup of the Lord unworthily; he will ‘be guilty’ of the body and blood of the Lord.
(1Co 11:28) But let a man ‘examine’ himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup.
1Co 11:29) For he who eats and drinks ‘unworthily’ eats and drinks ‘condemnation’ to himself, ‘not’ discerning the Lord's body.
(1Co 11:30) For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and many are dead.
(1Co 11:31) For if, we would ‘judge’ ourselves, we would ‘not’ be judged.
(1Co 11:32) But when we are ‘judged’, we are ‘chastened’ by the Lord, that we should not be ‘condemned’ with the world.

*** (Ezra 7:10) For Ezra had; ‘prepared’ his heart to seek the Law of Jehovah, and ‘to do it’, and to ‘teach’ statutes and judgments in Israel.

*** (1Corinthains 2:14) 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.

“Growing ‘Spiritually?’ – 101”…Blog.

“Growing ‘Spiritually?’ – 101”…Blog.

*** (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’.

How long have ‘You’… known Christ Jesus…? No, I did not ask you how long you have been a Christian. Why…? Many ‘say’ that they are Christians; and have ‘Never’ been Born Again by His Holy Spirit! You ‘cannot’ Know Christ Jesus… ‘Without’ the Holy Spirit of God… “Indwelling ‘You!” Many religious people claim, to be Christian… and yet is has become a ‘Cultural’ thing. Just as one says they belong to a particular political party; so too many ‘only’ claim to be Christian. And without ‘knowing and obeying’; God’s Holy Word… “The Bible”… you cannot ‘Truly’ claim to “Know Him – Jesus!”

*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, ‘Unless’ a man is born again, he ‘cannot’ see the kingdom of God.

*** (Romans 8:9) But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, ‘if’ the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone ‘has not’ the Spirit of Christ, he is “None of His”.

*** (Luke 6:46) And why do you call Me [Jesus] Lord, Lord, and ‘do-not-do’ what I [Jesus] say?

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being ‘Doers’ of the Word, and ‘Not’ merely hearers who ‘Deceive’ themselves.

*** (Mark 7:6-7) But He [Jesus] answered and said to them, Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, "This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
(Mark 7:7) However, they worship Me in ‘vain’, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.

Do you Read & Study… the Holy Word of God… “Daily?” You eat human food & snacks at least, three times a day, don’t You? Do ‘You’; feed yourself “Spiritually”… with His Holy Word, “Daily?” Some think that they are worshiping God; by listening to [Pseudo] Christian Music. Some listen to Sermons on the Internet… and believe that they are growing spiritually. But… Please allow me to suggest; That without the Holy Spirit… “Teaching You”… from the Holy Word of God… You are simply ‘agreeing’ with the ‘Speaker or Teacher’. Why do so very ‘many’… follow the “False Teachings” of such as… ‘Joel Osteen’… ‘Benny Hinn’… ‘Joyce Meyers’… ‘Ceflo Dollar’… ‘Joseph Prince’… and the Thousand More? It is because they ‘Approve’ of the Teacher… More than they do of… the Holy Word of God!

*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove all things, hold fast to the good.

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = 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].

*** (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.

*** (Luke 16:31) And he said to him, If they = do ‘NOT’ = hear Moses and the Prophets, = they will ‘NOT’ = be persuaded, = even though ‘one’ rose from the dead.

*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those = who call evil good = and good evil; = who put darkness for light = and light for darkness; = who put bitter for sweet = and sweet for bitter!

Isn’t it about Time – 101 ?

About now… ‘Some’ will stop reading; never to return. They ‘do not’ know their Bibles well enough… “To Discern–Truth from Evil!” They have been simply… practicing their religion… without the Complete Authority of the Holy Scriptures! The Jews of Jesus’ day… did the ‘Same Thing!’ They had ‘replaced’ God’s Holy Word… with their “Traditions & Religious Practices!” It is the same ‘Today’… only it is getting worse & worse! True Christians, those Born Again by God’s Holy Spirit… take a stand for His Truth; found in His Holy Word! Those that only ‘say’ they are Christians… “Will ‘Not’ take a stand for Jesus’ Truth – ‘found’ ONLY… in His Holy Word!”

*** (Luke 18:8) I [Jesus] tell you, He [God] will give them justice quickly. But when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?" [True Biblical Faith]

*** (Jude 1:3-4) Dear friends, although I was eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I found it necessary to write to you and urge you to continue your vigorous defense of the faith that was passed down to the saints once and for all.
(Jud 1:4) For some people have slipped in among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

***  (2Peter 2:1-2) Now there were false prophets among the people, just as there also will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves.
(2Pet 2:2) Many people will follow their immoral ways, and because of them the way of truth will be maligned.

*** (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
(2Co 11:14) Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light?
(2Co 11:15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.

False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]

About now someone… is saying, “Why are ‘you’ so Negative?’ If you are a ‘Student of the Word’; you will know that; “Verse for Verse”… there is “More Negative Admonitions”… than “Positive Ones”… written throughout the Holy Scriptures! Have you ‘not read’ through the OT and seen how ‘very many’ times… God sent His Prophets; to Israel His Covenant People… “To Correct Them?” Even Christ Jesus… spoke ‘more’ warnings about Judgment and Damnation… then He spoke about Heaven & Rewards! And yet… If you ‘do not’; Know the Scriptures… you ‘do not’ know this “Fact!”

*** (John 5:39-40) You search the Scriptures, for in them ‘you think’ you have eternal life. And they are the ones witnessing of Me [Jesus],
(Joh 5:40) and you ‘will not’ come to Me [Jesus] that you might have life.

*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you when all men shall ‘Speak Well’ of you! For so their fathers ‘Did’, to the false prophets.

*** (John 12:43) For they ‘loved’ the praise of men; ‘More Than’; the praise of God.

*** (John 8:40) But now you are trying to kill Me [Jesus], a man who has ‘told’ you the Truth that I heard from God. Abraham ‘would not’ have done that.

“How do I know that the Bible”…? – 101 Blog.

The ‘Test’ of Any Belief is… Are ‘You’ willing… “To Die–for ‘What’ You Believe”…? Many have not been forced, to make that Choice. But many have; especially if you will look at the History of the Church; the Bride of Christ; the Redeemed from among Sinners! Surely, you are not willing to give your life; for your Political Candidate! Nor, for your preference in or about anything else! But if you have read the Bible book of Revelation… many ‘gave’ their life for… The Lamb of God and for His Testimony… ‘The Word of God!”
*** (Revelation 12:9-10-11) And the great dragon was cast out, the old serpent called Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
(Rev 12:10) And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, Now has come the salvation and power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night.

*** (Revelation 2:8-to-11) And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: The First and the Last, who became dead and lived, says these things:
(Rev 2:9) I know your works and tribulation and poverty (but you are rich), and I know the blasphemy of those saying themselves to be Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
(Rev 2:10) Do not ‘at all’ fear what you are ‘about to suffer’. Behold, the Devil will cast some of you into prison, so that you may be tried. And you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful to death, and I will give you the crown of life.
(Rev 2:11) He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.

So where do You… go from Here? You dedicate time for your Favorite TV or Video; don’t ‘You?’ Of for preparing that special meal… for that special person; don’t ‘You?’ Or even for that special vacation or trip; don’t ‘You?’ Do ‘You’ set aside; the best of your day… ‘to meet’ with Christ Jesus; in His Holy Word…? Do you make it the ‘Priority’ of your day… Before = you turn on your = Computer, = Phone = or before you even go to work…? Breakfast is the Most Important meal of the Day! So too is your… ‘Spiritual Breakfast’… meeting with God; in His Holy Word! Is hearing from Him… by His Holy Spirit… from His Holy Word; “Your Priority?”

(Joh 17:19) And I [Jesus] sanctify Myself for their sakes; so that they ‘also’ might be sanctified in Truth.
