“Do ‘You’ Play [small-g]? – 101”…Blog. [1/?]
*** (Judges 21:25) In those days there was no king in Israel. Every man; did the right; in his ‘own’ eyes.
*** (Matthew 13:19) When ‘anyone’ hears the Word of the kingdom; and ‘does not’ understand it; then the wicked one [Satan] comes and catches away; that which was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.
*** (Jeremiah 22:9) Then they shall answer; “Because” they have ‘forsaken’ the covenant of the LORD their God; and worshipped ‘other’ gods; and ‘served’ them.
How about ‘You’…? Do ‘You’ ever play: ‘god’ [small-g]…? This seems like a harmless question; “IF”… ‘You’ love Jesus and ‘Obey’ His Holy Word…! The Holy Word of God… offends no one… when they are in: ‘Obedience & Fellowship’ with Him…! Did ‘You’ know playing god… can be as simple as “Substituting” something else… for “God’s Truth”…? Perhaps an example…? Do ‘You’ ever post a… “Picture of Jesus”… on Face Book or another social internet site…? Did ‘You’ know… that is the same thing Israel did… when The LORD told them… “No Idols!” “IF”… ‘You’ truly Love HIM… “THEN’… ‘You’ will simply “Obey” His Holy Word…! Is it really that hard to understand…? You cannot be His Disciple… if ‘You’ are “Not Willing”… “To Obey His Holy Word!” Many call themselves a ‘Believer’… but… “Not ‘His’ Disciple!” Doesn’t a Disciple… Obey His or Her… “Master & Lord”…?
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know The Truth; but because you know it; and know that: No Lie – is of The Truth.
*** (Exodus 20:4) You shall “NOT” make unto thee any graven image; or ‘any likeness’ of anything that is in heaven above; or that is in the earth beneath; or that is in the water under the earth:
*** (Deuteronomy 4:15-16) Therefore take good heed to yourselves, for you saw no kind of likeness on the day Jehovah spoke to you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire,
(Deut 4:16) lest you act corruptly and make yourselves a graven image; the likeness of “Any” - figure’ the likeness of; “MALE or FEMALE”,
(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!
*** (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.
Picture of Jesus – 101 Blog. ? ? ?
When ‘You’ or ‘I’ or ‘Anyone’… “Disobeys” the Holy Word of GOD… we are in fact; “Playing god” [small-g]…! We think we know better than GOD…! Imagine that, a finite sinful human being… knowing more than The Only Infinite GOD…? That is playing god [small-g]…! Do ‘You’ know the Scriptures… that Christ Jesus was a Jew? Of the over 200 pictures painted by a variety of artists in the last two centuries and… “None” do Him ‘Scriptural Justice!’ Those visual ‘crutches’… simply “Replace”… what the Holy Word of GOD says…! When those false crutches are discarded as junk… then ‘You’ may love the Lord GOD… with all ‘Your’… “Heart, Mind, Soul & Being”…! Without that ‘obedience’… Satan… will simply help you along in ‘Your’… “Religious Delusions & False Pictures of Jesus!” Remember, Christ Jesus is found in His Holy Word… both the ‘OT & NT’… Scriptures! Have ‘You’ ever looked for Him… in His Holy Word…? He said HE was there… “Luke 24:44-45”…! But did ‘You’… look for Him there…?
*** (Luke 10:27) And answering, he said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart; and with all your soul; and with all your strength; and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
*** (Joh 20:25) So the other disciples kept telling him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he told them, “Unless I see the nail marks in His hands; put my finger into them; and put my hand into his side; I will never believe!”
(Joh 20:26) A week later his disciples were again inside; and Thomas was with them. Even though the doors were shut, Jesus came, stood among them, and said, “Peace be with you.”
(Joh 20:27) Then He said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; and look at my hands. Take your hand; and put it into My side. Stop doubting; but believe.”
(Joh 20:28) Thomas answered Him, saying “My Lord and my God!” [Thomas called Jesus – God!]
(Joh 20:29) Jesus said to him, Is it because you have seen me that you have believed? How blessed are those; who have never seen Me; and yet have believed!;
*** (Zechariah 12:10) And I will pour on the house of David; and on the people of Jerusalem; the spirit of grace and of prayers. And they shall look on Me [Jesus]; Whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for Him; as one mourns for his only son; and shall be bitter over Him, as the bitterness over the first-born.
*** (Revelation 5:6) And I looked, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, amidst the elders; a Lamb stood, as if it had been slain; having seven horns and seven eyes; which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

*** (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 have magnified = Your Word = “ABOVE” = ‘All’ Your Name.
Satan, the enemy of Christ and of our souls… wants us to “Remain Ignorant”… of the Holy Word of GOD! The “More” of the Holy Word of GOD… ‘You’ take into your Hearts, Minds & Souls… the “More” it becomes part of your being! ‘You’ then are able to discern… ‘Good & Evil’… in every facet of this temporary finite life! When Christ Jesus was tempted by Satan; He did not argue with him; but simply stated, “IT IS WRITTEN…!” Any confusion in our minds; is simply put to rest when we ‘Decide’… “It is Written…!” Are ‘You’… “Dead or Alive?” Are ‘You’ Pregnant or Not?” You are one or the other; but not both! It will be that simple ‘To Discern; both… “Truth & Lies”… when ‘You’ have hidden His Holy Word in ‘Your’… “Heart & Mind & Soul & Being!” Have ‘You’ ever heard someone say, “You’re a Legalist?” That person ‘does not’ know or ‘want to know’… “The Holy Word of GOD!” No Real Born Again Christian shuns the Holy Word of GOD! They simply discern and then apply; those applicable principles of Life… for ‘each & every’ situation! [Matt 4:4 & Luke 4:4]
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [LORD].
*** (Hebrews 5:14) But solid food belongs to those who are of full age; even those who because of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
*** (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!
*** (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.
*** (Hebrews 5:11) We have much to say about this; but it is ‘difficult’ to explain; because you have become; too lazy to understand.
Isn’t it about Time – 101 ?
Satan’s plan has remained the “Same!” It is simply to get ‘You’ to… ‘Question & plant doubts’… about what God has said ‘already’ said in His Holy Word! Man is to live by “Every Word of GOD”… then why else would ‘You’… substitute something else? Satan simply told Eve… “Genesis 3:1”… has GOD [Really] said… “You Shall Not”…? That is the same ‘Deception & Methodology’… he uses today! Many follow his lead and… “Will NOT” – “Read & Study”… the Holy Word of GOD! Consequently, they themselves: ‘play god’ [small-g] in their… “Own Lives!” They do not want to know what God has said, in His Holy Word! They claim to be ‘Believers’… without being a ‘Disciple of Christ Jesus!’ How very strange their theology has become… like the ‘Jews of OT Israel’… who worshiped GOD but served their Idols…!
*** (Psalms 106:34-to-41) They ‘did not’ destroy the nations; as Jehovah The LORD commanded them;
(Psa 106:35) but were mixed among the nations; and learned their works.
(Psa 106:36) And they served their idols; which were a snare to them.
(Psa 106:37) Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters; to demons,
(Psa 106:38) and shed innocent blood; even the blood of their sons and of their daughters; whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was defiled with blood.
(Psa 106:39) And they were defiled with their works; and went lusting in their doings.
(Psa 106:40) And the wrath of Jehovah The LORD was kindled against His people; and He detested His inheritance.
(Psa 106:41) And He gave them into the hand of the nations; and those who hated them ruled over them.
*** (Ezekiel 6:9) And those of you who escape shall remember Me [God] among the nations where they shall be exiled; because I was broken by their whoring heart which has departed from Me; and with their whoring eyes which go after their idols. And they shall despise themselves; for the evils which they have committed in ‘all’ their abominations.
*** (Matthew 28:16) And the eleven disciples went into Galilee; to the mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
(Matt 28:17) And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him. But some doubted.
*** (Acts 6:7) And the Word of God was increasing. And the number of the ‘disciples’ in Jerusalem was multiplying exceedingly; even a great crowd of the priests obeyed the faith.
