“He [Christ] Predestined ‘US’– 201”…Blog. [2/2]

“He [Christ] Predestined ‘US’– 201”…Blog. [2/2]  Continued from [1/2]

*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear. But let ‘not’ God speak with us, lest we die. [Even after their deliverance from Pharaoh]
(Exodus 20:20) And Moses said to the people; Do not fear, for God has come to test you; and so that His fear may be before your faces, so that you may not sin.

*** (John 4:21-to-26)  Jesus said to her, Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you shall neither worship the Father [God] in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem. [Jeremiah 3:17]
(John 4:22)  You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.
(John 4:23)  But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father [God]; in Spirit and Truth; for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
(John 4:24)  God is a Spirit, and they who worship Him; must worship in Spirit and in Truth.
(John 4:25)  The woman said to Him, I know that Messiah is coming, Who is called Christ. When He has come, He will tell us all things.
(John 4:26)  Jesus said to her, I AM, the One speaking to you.

*** (2Chronicles 6:32-33) And also to the stranger who is ‘not’ of Your people Israel, but has come from a far country for Your great name's sake, and Your mighty hand, and Your stretched out arm, if they come and pray in this house;
(2Chron 6:33) then hear from Heaven, from Your dwelling-place, and do according to all that the stranger calls to You for, so that ‘ALL’ people of the earth; may know Your name, and fear You, as Your people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by Your name.

These few verses… are only a sampling of God’s Witness… “To All Mankind!” He has provided Salvation on “His Terms”… because He is God! And yet mankind… ‘Continually’ “REFUSES”… God’s Love & Mercy & Grace…! By his “Free Will”… mankind can either ‘Love or Hate’… God! Without that “Free Will”… he or she… would have No Choice! Then and only then… would some be… “Predestined to Salvation”… or… “Predestined to Damnation!” Free Will… is always the Key!  Surely you know… “John 3:16”… but did you know the rest of those Bible Verses… associated with Gods’ “Love & Salvation”…? Most purposely MISS… the Context and the Text of that Salvation Truth…! Surely You would not want a partial paycheck… would You? Why then take Only a Partial Truth about Salvation…?  Contained therein… is Both the Good News and the Bad News…!  You use Free Will… “To Choose To SIN”… don’t You…?

*** (James 1:14-15-16) But each one is tempted by his lusts, being drawn away and seduced by them.
(Jas 1:15) Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin. And sin, when it is fully formed, brings forth death.
(Jas 1:16) Do not err, my beloved brothers.

*** (Luke 13:5) I [Jesus] tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.

*** (Acts 17:30-31) Truly, then, God overlooking the times of ignorance, now He strictly commands all men everywhere to repent,
(Act 17:31) because He has appointed a day in which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by a Man [Jesus] Whom He appointed, having given proof to all by raising Him from the dead.
(Act 17:32) And hearing of a resurrection of the dead, some indeed mocked; and others said, We will hear you again concerning this.

*** (2Peter 3:9) The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is long-suffering toward us, not purposing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

GOD has commanded All Mankind… Everywhere… “TO REPENT!” have ‘Not’ and “Will NOT”… because they Love their SIN/SINS…! Whose fault is it… IF… mankind… Rebels Against GOD… and will NOT Obey His Command… “To Repent!” ‘Each & every’ person… has been exposed; to the Righteousness of God; and then chooses to “Repent” or to “Rebel”… against God and His Holy Word! Without “Free Will”… they would “NOT”… have that Choice!

*** (John 3:19-20-21) And this is the condemnation, that the Light [Jesus] has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the Light, because their deeds were evil.
(John 3:20) For everyone who does evil = hates the Light [Christ], and does not come to the Light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
(John 3:21) But he who practices Truth comes to the Light so that his works may be revealed, that they exist, having been worked in God. [Validation of Salvation]

*** (John 8:12) Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Do YOU Present an Unbalanced Gospel…?
Unbalanced – 101 Blog.

*** (Hebrews 10:28-to-31) He who rebelled against Moses' Law; died without mercy; on the word of two or three witnesses.
(Heb 10:29) Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose; will he be thought worthy of punishment; the one who has trampled the Son of God [Christ Jesus], and who has counted the blood of the covenant; with which he was sanctified an unholy thing; and has insulted the [Holy] Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know Him [God]; Who has said, “Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, says the Lord.” And again, “The Lord shall judge His people.”
(Heb 10:31)  It is a fearful thing; to fall into the hands of the living God.

“HEAVEN” & “HELL” – 101 Blog.  [2/2]                       

*** (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?

*** (1Corinthians 5:9-to-13) I wrote to you in my letter to stop associating with people who are sexually immoral-
(1Co 5:10) not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or greedy people, robbers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to; leave this world.
(1Co 5:11) But now I am writing to you to stop associating with any; so-called brother if he is sexually immoral, greedy, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunk, or a robber. With such a person you must even stop eating.
(1Co 5:12) After all, is it my business to judge outsiders? You are to judge those who are inside, aren't you?
(1Co 5:13) God will judge outsiders. “Put that wicked man away from you.”

Recently, I had someone… say to me, “What about those that ‘do not’ come to Christ, did Christ die for their sins also…? Is there a ‘Limited Atonement’… only for those that come to Christ Jesus? Absolutely Yes! Perhaps I may share with you my understanding of this fact?

1. I give you a check for… “10,000 dollars!” [Word picture of God’s Salvation to mankind]
2. You thank me and ‘Never’ cash that check!
3. You think that it is charity but I tell you it is ‘grace’ with no strings attached.
4. Still… you want to succeed on your own, with the help of no one.
5. You die…!
6. Your heirs close your estate and find my check to you for the money.
7. They go to the Bank… and try and cash my check, made out to you.
8. The bank informs them… sorry the person is dead; the funds are “Non-Transferable!”

That is a ‘word picture’… of “Salvation”. God calls “All” mankind to Himself. Many refuse His gift of Grace in payment for their… “Sin / Sins.” Their ‘Refusal’ to cash their check, the… “Gift of God”… will leave one… without the ‘eternal’ payment for their… “Sin / Sins!” This… Atonement by Christ Jesus for YOU… is paid for by the… “Death, Burial and Resurrection of Himself”… But…rejected by You! Where then do you expect to spend eternity… after spitting in the face of God and refusing His gift of Grace to you? This is the Gospel… that we communicate as… “Evangelism = You are Witnesses of these Things… “Luke 24:44-to-49”

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

*** (Hebrews 12:6-to-9) 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? [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.
(Heb 12:9) Furthermore, we had earthly fathers who used to discipline us, and we respected them for it. We should even more submit; to the Father of our spirits and live, shouldn't we?

*** (1Corinthians 11:30-31-32) That's why so many of you are weak and sick and a considerable number are dying.
(1Cor 11:31) But if we judged ourselves correctly; we would not be judged.
(1Cor 11:32)  Now, while we are being judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined; lest we be condemned along with the world. [John 12:44-to-50]

False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]

Do you have ‘Relatives’ & ‘Family Members’… who you have been witnessing to: about Christ Jesus and Salvation? They do not want to hear anything about the Bible or Christ… because they have their “Religion!” Many are stuck in the religion of their parents… and will not leave; by their Own Choice! Remember “Free Will?”  IF you have read these blogs… were you Forced TO… or have you done it… of your “Own = Free Will”…? All we do in life… is done with our ‘Free Will’… isn’t it? Even though you may not like your Employment… no one forces you to go to work… do they? You simply weigh the facts… the benefits and the distractions of having No Monies… and then Choose by “FREE Will”… to go to Work. My father who was raised a Catholic… ‘Never’ came to Christ: on His Terms… “John 7:38-39”… and went into Eternity without Christ. Eight years later… my mother within months of her end… called me one night and I came over and led her to Christ. There will be “Many”… who will ‘Never’… come to Christ! Your responsibility is to share… the “Good News” & the “Bad News!” Their “Acceptance or Rejection”… is done by their… “Free Will”…!

*** (Matthew 7:13-14) Go in through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction; and = ‘many’ = there are who go in through it.
(Matt 7:14) Because narrow is the gate and constricted is the way which leads to life; and there are = ‘few’ = who find it.

*** (John 3:19-20-21) And this is the condemnation, that the Light [Jesus] has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the Light, because their deeds were evil.
(John 3:20) For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, lest his deeds should be exposed.

Offending ‘Unbelievers?’ – 101”…Blog.

Once Again… The ‘ONLY’ Infinite God… has provided… Salvation in Christ Jesus; to a ‘Finite Human’… for… “ALL”… that would come to Him… “ONLY”… on His terms… “As it is Written”…!
