“Is Your ‘JESUS’ = Santa Clause – 101”…Blog.
*** (Philippians 2:9-10-11) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name:
(Php 2:10) That at the name of ‘Jesus’ every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
(Php 2:11) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
*** (2Corinthians 11:4) For if someone comes along and preaches ‘another’ Jesus than the one we preached, or should you receive a ‘different’ spirit from the one you received or a ‘different’ gospel from the one you accepted, you are ‘all too willing’ to listen.
On ‘Face Book’… and many other Social Internet sites; Christians are posting; Thoughts, Videos, Bible verses and ‘Other Sayings’ about Jesus. Every time I answer a remark or posting, I use Bible verses. Many who say they are Christian; get angry with me and ‘others’; who respond with God’s Truth… “His Holy Word!” Ever wonder ‘Why’…? No ‘Real’ Born Again Christian… should ever be angry with the Holy Word of God. Just perhaps… they know ‘about’ Jesus; without ‘knowing’ Him as Savior & Lord…?
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them by the Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (1Corinthians 2:10-to-14) But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.
(1Cor 2:11) For who among men knows the things of a man except the spirit of man within him? So also no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.
(1Cor 2:12) But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit from God, so that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
(1Cor 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.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) Think of our Lord's patience as salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him.
(2Pet 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.
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
Do you know ‘Why’… Christ Jesus healed People? Why did He perform so many Miracles? What did Christ Jesus fulfill; in His witness to Israel? Do you know why He had to Die; and then Raise Again? Did you know that “Christ” = means “Messiah?” In other words; do you know the ‘Complete’ teaching of the Scriptures about these Topics? Do you know Christ Jesus personally; or do you just have a ‘cursory’ knowledge about Him and the Bible?
*** (Matthew 22:29) Jesus answered and said to them, You; ‘Err’, Not knowing the Scriptures Nor the power of God.
*** (John 10:37-38) If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me.
(Joh 10:38) But if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works so that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.
*** (Matthew 12:39-40) But He answered and said to them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign. And there shall be no sign given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
(Mat 12:40) For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the huge fish, so the Son of Man shall be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
*** (John 20:27-28-29) Then He said to Thomas, Reach your finger here and behold My hands; and reach your hand here and thrust it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.
(Joh 20:28) And Thomas answered and said to Him, My Lord and my God!
(Joh 20:29) Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen Me you have believed. Blessed are they who ‘have not’ seen and ‘have’ believed.
Answering Blind FAITH - 101
‘Physical Healing’ by far… is the “Most Posted”; ‘Prayer Request!’ Just because Christ Jesus healed; Does ‘NOT’ mean that ‘Physical Healing’… is Promised to the New Testament Believer. Health was promised to ‘OT’ Israel; based on Obedience to the Covenant God made with them. But ‘Physical Healing’ was Not promised to all. In fact the evidences in the Scriptures was that ‘Few’ were healed by a Miracle. Did you know, Paul who wrote most of the NT; lost his Apostolic gift of healing. Peter did too! Those ‘Sign Gifts’ were to validate the Preaching of the Apostles; just as they validated Christ Jesus’… Preaching!
*** (Matthew 9:12) But when Jesus heard, He said to them, The ones who are whole do not need a ‘physician’, but the ones who are sick.
*** (2Timothy 4:20) Erastus stayed at Corinth, but Trophimus I left ‘sick’ at Miletus.
*** (Hebrews 4:16) Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
*** (2Corinthians 12:8-9) For this thing I be sought the Lord three times, that it might depart from me.
(2Cor 12:9) And He said to me, My grace is ‘sufficient’ for you, for My power is made perfect in ‘weakness’. Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may overshadow me.
Healing – 101 Blog.
How about your “Dying Loved Ones”…? So too, there are ‘many’ prayer requests from relatives; about their “Sick or Dying Family or Friends”. One ‘cannot’ live properly in this life; ‘until’ they have settled their ‘Sin Account’… with Almighty God! Many grieve; because they really ‘do not’ really know… ‘Where’ their Loved One; will spend Eternity! How about finding out for sure… while ‘one’ is alive; instead of ‘waiting’ till one is on their death bed? Isn’t that the “Most Important’ thing in ‘All Life’…? Not your mate; or your home; or your vehicle or where you live and work!
“Eternity Reservations” and your ‘Hear & Now’ Relationship; with “Christ Jesus”… is the ‘Only Important Thing!’ All other decisions need ‘to follow’ …that One!
*** (Hebrews 9:27) And as it is appointed to men once to die, but [immediately] after this the judgment,
*** (Luke 16:23) And in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torments, and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
*** (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2) To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heavens:
(Eccl 3:2) a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pull up what is planted;
Heaven & Hell – 101 Blog. [1/2]
Christ Jesus said… Your “True Belief” in Him; about Him; must be according to His Holy Word! And ‘NOT’ on what some Church, Pastor or Preacher said! Did you know the Mormons and the JW’s and those of Islam… believe in a “Jesus”… But, “Not” the Christ JESUS of the Bible. Which ‘JESUS’ do you believe “IN?” Many walk an aisle in a Church; or pray a prayer… and ‘Still’; “Do NOT Know”… ‘Where’ they will Spend Eternity! They have “NO Assurance” of SIN/SINS… Forgiven! And ‘Why’ is That? Because their belief in ‘Jesus’… is ‘not’ based on What His Holy Word; the Bible ‘Says!’
*** (John 7:38-38) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], ‘as’ the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(Joh 7:39) Now He said this about the [Holy] Spirit, Whom those who were believing in Him were to receive. For the Spirit was not yet present, ‘because’ Jesus had not yet been glorified.
*** (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 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?
(Mat 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them I ‘never’ knew you! Depart from Me, those working ‘lawlessness!’
*** (Ephesians 1:12-13-14) for us to be to the praise of His glory, who previously had trusted in Christ;
(Eph 1:13) in Whom also you, hearing the Word of Truth, the gospel of our salvation, in Whom also believing, you were ‘sealed’ with the Holy Spirit of promise,
(Eph 1:14) who is the earnest of our inheritance, to the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
*** (Acts 15:8) God, Who ‘knows’ everyone's heart, showed them He ‘approved’ = by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us. [Romans 8:9]

“It is ‘Finished!’ – 201”…Blog. [2/2]
Before ‘You’… go to sleep tonight ‘Please’ answer this question; “Where will you Spend Eternity; And Why”…? If you are ‘trusting’ your Religion; know this; that God, the God of the Bible does “Not”… Have a “Religion” or a “Church Denomination!” He offers you a “Relationship with Himself”… based “Only” on the ‘Finished Work of Redemption’ by Christ Jesus; Lord of Lords and King of Kings! “God’s Way”… or the ‘Highway’ to the “Lake of Fire!”
Love, in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
