“Are ‘You’… Teachable? – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 14:38) But if any = is [willingly] ignorant, = let him = be [willingly] ignorant
*** (Proverbs 1:22-to-26) How long will you love simplicity, simple ones? And will scorners delight in their scorning? And will fools hate knowledge?
(Pro 1:23) Turn at my warning; behold, I will pour out My [Holy] Spirit to you; I will make My Words known to you. [Deuteronomy 29:29]
(Pro 1:24) Because I called, and you refused; I stretched out my hand, and no one paid attention;
(Pro 1:25) but you have despised all my advice; and would have none of my warning.
(Pro 1:26) I also will laugh at your trouble; I will mock when your fear comes;
*** (Matthew 11:27) All things are delivered to Me [Jesus]; by My Father [God]. And no one knows the Son [Jesus]; except the Father [God]. Nor does anyone ‘know’ the Father [God]; except the Son [Jesus]; and the one -> to whom -> the Son [Jesus] will ‘reveal’ Him [God].
(Mat 11:28) Come to Me [Jesus]; all you who labor and are heavy laden; and I will give you rest.
(Mat 11:29) Take My yoke on you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and you shall find rest to your souls.
(Mat 11:30) For My yoke is easy; and My burden is light.
Are ‘You’ teachable…? No, I did ‘Not’ ask: if ‘You’ knew; something about the Bible. “What do ‘You’ believe”…? I believe what My Church ‘Believes’…! “What does your Church ‘Believe’?” Our Pastor teaches us what our Church ‘Believes’…! “What does your Pastor ‘Believe’?” We ‘All’… “Believe the Same Thing”….! Would ‘You’ think that anyone; that ‘attended’ that Church Congregation… “Would be Teachable”…? Like Politics… people always “Defend their Group!” When presented with ‘Contradictory Information’… especially from; the Holy Word of God; they immediately become “Hostile!” In the OT, there are… “929 Chapters & 31,103 Verses!” In the NT, there are… “260 Chapters & 7958 Verses!” How many of them have ‘You’ committed to memory? How many can ‘You’ explain… in the context of that Bible Chapter…?
*** (Proverbs 9:8-9-10) Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
(Pro 9:9) Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
(Pro 9:10) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
*** 1Corinthians 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) 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’ [Damnation].
*** (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.
Unless ‘You’ are “Truly Paranoid”… just perhaps someone is trying to… “Do ‘You’ Good”… by sharing some “Spiritual Truth” from the Bible! Or ‘he or she’… could be working for the Angel of Light; Satan! Can ‘You’ tell the “Difference”…? If ‘You’ have been “Truly Born Again”… by the Holy Spirit of GOD… isn’t it about ‘Time’… that ‘You’ became “Teachable”…? My first experience on being teachable… was a ‘Hot’ stove burner! I was about ‘3/or/4’ and was in the kitchen; watching my mother cook. We had a gas stove, with the heat; Instant On / Instant Off. But the “Burner Rack” that supported the Pot was, “Still HOT!” My mother warned me several times… but as a Child, of course, I knew better! So I touched it! You know what happened, I quickly learned about ‘Hot’ stove tops…! As an adult, I even struggle with myself now… and force myself to “Check OUT”… ‘Any and All’ Spiritual Truth… that someone shares.
*** (2Corinthains 11:13-14-15) Such people are ‘false’ apostles; dishonest workers; who are ‘masquerading’ as apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) And no wonder; since Satan himself ‘masquerades’: as an angel of light.
(2Cor 11:15) So it is not surprising if his servants also masquerade; as servants of righteousness. Their doom [Damnation] will match their works! [Jude 1:3-4]
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) Now there were false prophets among the people; just as there also will be ‘false teachers’ among you; who will ‘secretly introduce’ destructive heresies; and even deny the Master who bought them; bringing swift destruction on themselves.
(2Pet 2:2) “Many” people will follow their evil ways; and because of them; the way of Truth will be maligned.
*** (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.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me [Jesus] 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?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will ‘say’ to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me; those working lawlessness!
Knowing the Bible… ‘Without’ knowing; the “Author [Christ Jesus]… And being “Born Again”… turns one into a “Pharisee!” [Romans 8:9]
“Satan ‘knows’ the Bible = Better than ‘You!’–101” …Blog.
Did ‘You’ know that… ‘All’ are in a “Spiritual WAR”…? There are ‘Two Kingdoms’ here on Earth…! The ‘One’ of “Darkness & Lies”… over which Satan and his minions and false apostles; work daily, minute by minute. The ‘Other’ of “Light & Truth”… over which Jesus is Lord… and His Holy Word; the Bible: is the “Only Point of Reference!” Workers in Both Kingdoms… work side by side… working for ‘Converts’. But did ‘You’ know… the Kingdom of Darkness… has its followers… within the “Local Churches”…? Why else would Satan… need to be an ‘Angel of Light’…? The “Key Test”… is simply if ‘You’… hold to the “Complete Authority”… of the Holy Word of GOD… “Above Any & All Spiritual Teaching”…! Could it really be that ‘Simple’…? But of Course… what will God use to “Judge ‘All’ Mankind”…? What your Church teaches… or… “Only” the Holy Word of God…?
*** (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”.
*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are from God; and that the ‘whole world’ lies under the control; of the evil one [Satan].
*** (Luke 4:5-to-8) The devil also took Him [Jesus] to a high place and showed Him; all the kingdoms of the world in an instant.
(Luke 4:6) He said to Jesus, “I will give you all this authority and the glory of these kingdoms. For it has been given to me; and I give it to anyone I please.
(Luke 4:7) So if you will worship me, all this will be yours.”
(Luke 4:8) But Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only Him.’”
*** (John 8:44) You belong to your father the devil; and you want to carry out the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and has ‘never’ stood by the Truth; since there is “No Truth” in him. Whenever he tells a Lie; he speaks in character; for he is a Liar and the “Father of Lies.”
*** (2Timothy 3:5-6-7) They will hold to [only] an ‘outward’ form of godliness; but ‘deny’ its power. Stay away from such people.
(2Tim 3:6) For some of these men go into homes; and deceive foolish women; who are burdened with sins; and swayed by ‘all’ kinds of desires.
(2Tim 3:7) These women are ‘always’ studying; but are ‘never able’ to arrive; at a ‘full knowledge’ of the Truth. [John 17:17]
*** (2Corinthians 4:3-to-6) So if our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are perishing.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case; the god [Satan] of this world; 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 [visible] image of God. [Colossians 1:7-to-14]
(2Cor 4:5) For we ‘do not’ preach ourselves; but Jesus Christ as Lord; and ourselves as merely your servants for Jesus' sake.
(2Cor 4:6) For God, Who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give us the “Light of the knowledge of God's glory” in the face of Jesus Christ.

*** (Matthew 13:19) When anyone hears the word about the kingdom yet doesn't understand it; the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path.
What more can be ‘Said’…? ‘Many’ say they… “Love Jesus”… but ‘do not’ love: “His Holy Word!” That is an… “Impossibility”…! Christ Jesus is the Living Word of God…! Many speak words… but their ‘Actions’ do not follow…! They place their “Church or Denomination Teaching” before the “Holy Word of GOD”…! Why else would there be… “So Very Many Denominations”… All claiming to Love Jesus; and then ‘Not’ holding to the Bible; as their “Only Authority”…?
“Do ‘YOU’ = Love ‘Jesus’ – 101” …Blog.
Where do ‘You’ go from here…? Life is not made up of a “Few Big Choices”… but of those ‘Moment by Moment’… series of “Choices!” Chose to have the “Mind of Christ” & “His Holy Word”… and ‘You’ cannot go “Wrong”…!
*** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) Of course, we are living in the flesh; but we do not fight in a fleshly way. [Ephesians 6:10-to-18]
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are ‘not’ those of the flesh. Instead, they have the ‘Power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
(2Cor 10:5) And ‘every’ proud obstacle; that is raised ‘against’ the knowledge of God [John 10:17]; taking every thought ‘captive’; in order ‘to obey’ Christ. [Philippians 2:5 & Romans 12:1-to-4]
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready to punish [Proverbs 28:13 & 1Jn 1:5-to10] every act of disobedience; when your obedience is complete. [Luke 22:42]
*** (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 ?
