“Knowing Christ: ‘Through’ His Holy Word – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the WORD of the LORD.
*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) And He [Jesus] said to them; These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you; that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me [Jesus].
(Luke 24:45) And He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He [Jesus] said to them, So it is written; and so it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are witnesses of these things.
Why do so very ‘Many’… have so ‘very many opinions’ about “Christ Jesus”…? Obviously it is because they ‘do not’ know; nor ‘believe’ their Bible…! “Religions & Denominations”… will ‘always’ differ from the Scriptures. Christ Jesus was very emphatic; when dealing with the ‘Religious’ of His day. Christ kept going back to… “It is Written!” But written where…? Simply in the OT Scriptures! So today, there are many ‘Church’ denominations… ‘All’ claiming to be the ‘Real Church’… and ‘discarding’ the Truth of the Holy Scriptures! No one can truly know Jesus… except by His Holy Word. In the “END”… what will Christ Jesus use to Judge us… “ALL”…? What your Church or Denomination “Teaches”… or will it be by; the “Scriptures”…? Please answer that question… ‘Out Loud?’
*** (2Corinthains 5:10) For we must “ALL” appear before the judgment seat of Christ; so that ‘each one’ may receive the things done through the body; according to that which he has done, whether good or bad.
*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and ‘does not’ receive My WORDS; has ‘one’ who judges him; the WORD that I have spoken, the same shall ‘judge’ him in the Last Day.
(John 12:49) For I [Jesus] have not spoken of Myself; but the Father [God]; Who sent Me gave Me a command; WHAT I should Say, and what I should Speak.
(John 12:50) And I know that His command is life everlasting. Therefore whatever I speak, even as the Father [God] said to Me; so I [Jesus] speak.
*** (John 5:22) For the Father [God] judges no man; but has committed “ALL” judgment to the Son [Christ Jesus],
(John 5:23) so that “ALL” should honor the Son [Christ Jesus]; even as they honor the Father [God]. He who ‘does not’ honor the Son [Christ]; ‘does not’ honor the Father who sent Him.
(John 5:24) Truly, truly, I [Jesus] say to you; He who hears My WORD; and believes on Him [God]; Who sent Me [Jesus] has everlasting life; and ‘shall not’ come into condemnation; but has passed from death to life.
*** (Philippians 2:9-10-11) Therefore God has highly exalted Him [Christ Jesus], and has given Him a name which is ‘above’ every name,
(Philip 2:10) that at the name of Jesus; ‘every’ knee should bow, of heavenly ones, and of earthly ones, and of ones under the earth;
(Philip 2:11) and that ‘every’ tongue should confess; that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the WORD of the LORD was unto them; = precept upon precept; = precept upon precept; = line upon line, = line upon line; = here a little, = and there a little; = that they might go, = and fall backward, = and be broken, = and snared, = and taken.
Those Who ‘Reject’: the Holy Word of God… will simply answer to… “The Word”… on “Judgment Day!” Could it be any plainer… in these ‘above’ Bible Verses…? Now what ‘YOUR Church’ teaches… or what ‘THAT’ Church teaches… but what is in the… “SCRIPTURES”…! The Jews’ of Jesus’ day & time… had problems; for Christ Jesus… “Used Only The Scriptures”… as His reference point! The Jews knew the Scriptures… but they “ONLY”… Knew them in their Head: “And ‘Not’ in their Heart”…! Knowing ‘about’ the Bible; and Knowing ‘some’ of the Bible… “Does Not Mean”… that You know; the Christ Jesus of the Scriptures…! One must “Know & Believe”… the Holy Scriptures… in their Heart…! Is there “Proof”… in the Scriptures of this “Fact?” Have You ever examined the Scriptures… Independently… of that ‘Your’ Church or Denomination… Teaches…? “If Not”… “Why Not”…?
*** (Luke 8:11-12) And the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God.
(Luke 8:12) Those by the roadside are the ones who hear; then the Devil comes and takes the Word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart, so that I might not sin against You.
*** (Psalms 119:105) NUN: Your Word is a lamp to my feet; and a light to my path.
*** (Romans 10:9-10-11) Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses unto salvation.
(Rom 10:11) For the Scripture says, “Everyone believing on Him shall not be put to shame.”
*** (Jeremiah 29:11-12-13) For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
(Jer 29:12) Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
(Jer 29:13) And you shall seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
*** (Romans 2:28-29) For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that outwardly in flesh;
(Rom 2:29) but he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart; in spirit and not in letter; whose praise is not from men, but from God.
*** (Hebrews 4:2) For also we have had the gospel preached, as well as them. But the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
*** (Ezekiel 36:26-27) And I [God] will give you a new heart; and I will put a new spirit within you. And I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
(Ezek 36:27) And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments and do them.
There are ‘Hundreds’ of like Bible Verses… that teach that the Holy Word of God; is… ‘Known & Believed’… in one’s “Heart”… before it is ‘Believed in one’s Head!’ The conversion of the ‘SINNER’… is done in the “Heart”; before it is done in the Mind! Being “Born Again”… by God’s Holy Spirit… gives that person a… “Heart & Mind”… to Understand God!” Those who are ‘Not Born Again’… simply see God’s Holy Word… as “Foolishness”! They ‘do not’ have their ‘Mind’… to understand His Holy Word… because they ‘do not’ have the Heart that Knows God! Knowing God… comes from the Heart… and not only the Head! “Religion” often discards God’s point of reference… “His Holy Word!” If all ‘Religions’ led to God… then ‘any belief’ about God… would then suffice. But if He ‘only’ uses His Holy Word… there is “No Substitute”…! Again, Christ Jesus said He would use… “His Word”… to judge in the Last Day! He did not say… what your Church teaches!
*** (2Corinthains 4:3-4) So if our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are being lost.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case; the god of this world [Satan]; has blinded the minds of those who ‘do not’ believe; to keep them from ‘seeing’ the light of the glorious gospel of Christ; Who is the image of God.
*** (John 7:38) 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 [Holy] Spirit was not yet present; because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
*** (Acts 15:8-9) God, Who knows everyone's heart, showed them He approved by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us.
(Acts 15:9) He made no distinction between them and us; because He cleansed their hearts by faith.
*** (Romans 8:26-27) Likewise the [Holy] Spirit also helps our infirmities. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought; but the [Holy] Spirit Himself makes intercession for us; with groanings which cannot be uttered.
(Rom 8:27) And He [God] searching the hearts; knows what is the mind of the Spirit; because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
*** (Luke 16:16-17) The Law and the Prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God is proclaimed, and everyone is pressing into it.
(Luke 16:17) And it is easier for the heaven and earth to pass than for one tittle of the Law to fail.
*** (Luke 16:30-31) And he said, No, father Abraham, but if one should go to them from the dead, they would repent.
(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.
*** (Matthew 24:35) The heaven and the earth shall pass away; but My Words shall not pass away.
*** (Romans 8:9) But you are not in the flesh; but in the Spirit; if the [Holy] Spirit of God dwells in you. But if ‘anyone’ has not the Spirit of Christ; he is “NONE” of His.
The Holy Word of God… ‘will not’ become “Alive to You”; ‘Until’ you are Born Again! Now, You will are just like those Pharisees of Jesus’ day… who ‘did not’ believe that; He was the Christ [Messiah] of God! Sorry No, Jesus last name was not Christ… that is His Messianic Title & Position! He came in the… ‘Sure Mercies of David’ [Isaiah 55:3]… in fulfillment of the Scriptures! One will ‘not’ believe the Scriptures; as God’s “Only Reference” point… Until one is Born Again by His Holy Spirit! “IF”… you do not believe the Holy Word of God… “THEN”… You are “NOT” Born Again by His Holy Spirit! It is the Holy Spirit… that makes “His Holy Word”… “ALIVE”… to our “Hearts & Minds”…!
*** (1Corinthains 2:10-to-14) But God has revealed those things to us by his Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the deep things of God.
(1Cor 2:11) Is there anyone who can understand his own thoughts except by his own inner spirit? In the same way, no one can know the thoughts of God except God's Spirit.
(1Cor 2:12) Now, we have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who comes from God, so that we can understand the things that were freely given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) We don't speak about these things in words taught us by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, as we explain spiritual things to spiritual people.
(1Cor 2:14) A person who isn't spiritual doesn't accept the things of God's Spirit, for they are nonsense to him. He can't understand them because they are spiritually evaluated.
*** (1Peter 1:22-to-25) Purifying your souls in the obedience of the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers, love one another fervently out of a pure heart,
(1Pet 1:23) having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the living Word of God, and abiding forever.
(1Pet 1:24) For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of men as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls out,
(1Pet 1:25) but the Word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the Word preached as gospel to you.
*** (Ephesians 1:7-to-14) In Him [Jesus] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace,
(Eph 1:8) which He caused to abound toward us in all wisdom and understanding;
(Eph 1:9) having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,
(Eph 1:10) for an administration of the fullness of times, to head up all things in Christ, both the things in Heaven, and the things on earth, even in Him,
(Eph 1:11) in whom also we have been chosen to an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His own will,
(Eph 1:12) 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.
Can YOU be ‘honest’ with God…? Simply tell HIM… “Lord I do NOT believe Your Word… the Bible!” Tell Him your Doubts and Concerns… with His Holy Word…! Remember, He is Infinite and All Knowing and Nothing you say about your Doubts… will surprise Him! Just be Honest with Him… Please…?
Love; in Christ, Roger / Ezekiel 3:18-to-21.
