“The Holy Spirit & ‘Pentecost’ – 101”…Blog. [1/?]

“The Holy Spirit & ‘Pentecost’ – 101”…Blog. [1/?]

*** (Proverbs 9:9-10) Give instruction to a wise one; and he will be still wiser; teach a just one; and he will increase in learning.
(Pro 9:10) The fear of the LORD [Jehovah] is the beginning of wisdom; and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding.

*** (1Corinthians 14:38) But if any = is [willingly] ignorant, = let him = be [willingly] ignorant

*** (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].

The Fear of God – 101 Blog [1/3]

Before ‘Any’ discussion of Bible Topics… there is “Only One Ground Rule!” Is the Holy Word of God; The Scriptures… the Only Authority… for those Truly Born Again; by God’s Holy Spirit…? “Yes”– or –“No”…? “IF”… your ‘Pastor’ or your ‘Church’ denomination is your “Authority Source”… “THEN”… ‘You’ do not believe; what Christ Jesus said in… “Matthew 4:4 & Luke 4:4”…! As a maturing Christian, I have come to “Some Unlearning”; of what I previously thought was Right. And then “To Unlearn & To ‘Only’ Accept”… what God’s Holy Word… “Teaches!” “Nothing More; Nothing Less!” When all True Born Again Believers… stand before Christ Jesus; He will use “Only” His Holy Word: to Judge us for… “Rewards & ‘Loss’ of Rewards!” The True Fear of GOD; has left the modern Church; “Acts 5:11”… and ‘Many’ do not understand this Bible Concept! Did ‘You’ miss “Proverbs 9:9-10” at the start of this blog…? The “Fear of the LORD”… is God’s basis for “Any Spiritual Learning & Instruction”… from His Holy Word…!

*** (Proverbs 30:5-6) Every Word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
(Pro 30:6) Do not add to His Words; lest He reprove you and you be found a liar.

*** (John 12:48-49-50) 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.
(Joh 12:49) For I [Jesus] ‘have not’ spoken of Myself; but the Father [God]; Who sent Me [Jesus] gave Me a command; what I should say; and what I should speak.
(Joh 12:50) And I [Jesus] know that His command is life everlasting. Therefore whatever I [Jesus] speak; even as the Father [God]; said to Me; so I speak. [Numbers 23:19]

*** (1Corinthains 3:11-to-16) After all; no one can lay ‘any other’ foundation than the One that is already laid; and that is Jesus Christ.
(1Cor 3:12) Whether a person builds on this foundation; with gold, silver, expensive stones, wood, hay, or straw,
(1Cor 3:13) the workmanship of each person will become evident; for the day will show what it is; because it will be ‘revealed’ with fire; and the fire will test the quality of each person's work.
(1Cor 3:14) If ‘what’ a person has built on the foundation [of Christ Jesus] survives; he will ‘receive’ a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If his work is ‘burned’ up; he will suffer ‘loss’. However, he himself will be saved; but it will be like going through fire. [Ecclesiastes 12:13-14]
(1Cor 3:16) You know that you are God's sanctuary; and that God's Spirit lives in you; don't you?

*** (Matthew 24:35) The heaven and the earth shall pass away; but My Words shall not pass away.

*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.

“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.

*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple; and praise Your name; for Your loving-kindness and for Your Truth's sake; for You [Lord] have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.

Was ‘Pentecost’ promised by Christ Jesus…? If ‘You’ have ‘read & studied’ the Holy Word of God… ‘You; might respond: ‘Yes!’ The Disciples of Christ were “Commanded” by Christ Jesus to ‘Wait’ for the Holy Spirit. So what did they do? They ‘Disobeyed’ and; started Church business… ‘Without’ the Holy Spirit! Many Churches do the same today. They elected ‘Mathias’, to take Judas’ place; as the ‘12th Apostle’. They gave God; ‘Only’ two choices… Acts 1:15-to-26… and; “Did ‘Not’ give Him… Three!” The ‘third’ choice should have been; “And None!” Why…? If ‘You’ know the Scriptures… “Paul was called to be an Apostle – by God!” And ‘Not’ by the men of the Jerusalem Church… who had “Not Yet”; received the Promised Holy Spirit!  ‘All’ the 12 Apostles will sit on 12 thrones; judging the 12 tribes. If ‘Mathias’ was truly an Apostle… Christ Jesus… would have said 13 thrones. [Matthew 19:28]

*** (John 7:37-38-39) On the last and most important day of the festival; Jesus stood up and shouted, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! [Isaiah 55:1]
(Joh 7:38) The one who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said; will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart.” [Ezekiel 47:1-to-9]
(Joh 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit; Whom those who were believing in Him [Jesus] were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was not yet present; because Jesus had not yet been glorified. [Joel 2:28-29]

*** (John 16:13-14-15) Yet when the [Holy] Spirit of Truth comes; He will guide you into all Truth. For He will not speak on his own accord; but will speak whatever He hears and will declare to you the things that are to come.
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me [Jesus]; for He will ‘take’ what is Mine; and ‘declare’ it to you.
(John 16:15) All that the Father [God] has is Mine. That is why I [Jesus] said, “He [The Holy Spirit] will take what is Mine and declare it to you.”

*** (Luke 24:49) And behold, I [Jesus] send the Promise of My Father [God] on you. But you sit in the city of Jerusalem; ‘until’ you are clothed with Power from on high. [The Holy Spirit]

*** (Galatians 1:1) From Paul-an apostle; not sent from men or by a man; but by Jesus Christ and God the Father; Who raised Him [Jesus] from the dead-
(Gal 1:2) and all the brothers who are with me; to the churches in Galatia.

*** (Matthew 19:28) And Jesus said to them, Truly I say to you that you who have followed Me; in the regeneration; when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, = you = also shall sit on = Twelve thrones, = judging = the Twelve tribes of Israel.

The 12th Apostle - 101 Blog

Why did I go through this discussion… about the Jerusalem Church business… before the day of Pentecost…? “Many” do not realize that the “Church–the Body of Christ” did not start… till the Holy Spirit came; and “Sealed ‘All TRUE’ Believers” for ‘Time & Eternity!’ There are “Many” who ‘do not’ know the Holy Word of God; the Scriptures. Those “Many”, falsely believe that ‘One’… can lose their Salvation! How can a ‘Finite’ human mankind… “Lose an Eternal Salvation”…? Especially one based on the “Eternally Finished work of Redemption”… by Christ Jesus: the God man…? If… ‘One’ cannot earn Salvation by “Good Works”… how then could ‘One’ lose salvation by “Bad [Evil] Works”…? This doctrine of the Holy Spirit; is the basis for the “Understanding” of what ‘Truly’ happened on Pentecost! Was the Holy Spirit just for the Jews… or was: He for ‘Both’… “Jews & Gentiles”…? [2Chronicles 6:32-33]

*** (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 15:8-9) And God; Who knows the hearts [of all mankind]; bore them witness; giving them the Holy Spirit: even as to us.
(Acts 15:9) And He put no difference between us [Jews] and them [Gentiles]; purifying their hearts by faith.

*** (Romans 8:9) You however; are ‘not’ of the flesh but under the control of the [Holy] Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ; he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.

*** (Ephesians 4:30) And ‘do not’ grieve the Holy Spirit of God: by Whom you are ‘sealed’ until the day of redemption.

*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things hard to be understood, = which the unlearned and unstable = Pervert, = as also they do the rest of the = SCRIPTURES, = to their own destruction.
