“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.
(Rev 12:11) And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony. And they ‘did not’ love their soul until death.

*** (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?”

*** (1Samuel 2:30) And Jehovah, the God of Israel says, I said indeed, Your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever. But now Jehovah says, Be it far from Me! For those who honor Me I will honor, and those that think little of Me shall be lightly regarded.

*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He [Jesus] went out, and departed into a ‘solitary’ place, and there prayed [worshiped].

*** (1Samuel 3:21) And Jehovah appeared again in Shiloh. For Jehovah revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh = by the “Word” of Jehovah.

*** (Joh 17:17-18-19) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
(Joh 17:18) As You [God] have sent Me [Jesus] into the world; even so I have sent ‘them’ into the world.
(Joh 17:19) And I [Jesus] sanctify Myself for their sakes; so that they ‘also’ might be sanctified in Truth.

Love, in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
