“Open ‘HEART’ Surgery – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Peter 1:18) For you know that it was not with perishable things; like silver or gold; that you have been ransomed from -> the worthless way of life; handed down to you by your ancestors,
*** (Romans 6:16) Don't you know; that when you offer yourselves to someone; as obedient slaves; you are slaves of the one you ‘Obey’ –> either of Sin; which leads to Death; or of ‘Obedience’ –> which leads to Righteousness?
*** (James 1:13-to-16) When someone is tempted; he should not say, “I am being tempted by God,” –> because God cannot be tempted by evil; nor does He tempt anyone.
(Jas 1:14) Instead, each person is tempted by his own desire [lust]; being lured and trapped by it.
(Jas 1:15) When that desire [lust] becomes pregnant; it gives birth to Sin; and when that sin grows up [matures]; it gives birth to Death.
(Jas 1:16) Do ‘not’ be deceived; my dear brothers.
*** (Hebrews 2:15) and deliver those who through fear of death; were all their lifetime -> subject to bondage. [the Flesh]
Do ‘You’ realize that… “BC” [Before Christ]… we were all –> ‘Willingly Ignorant’ of the things of God…? The natural man is ‘Not’ interested in the things of Christ; as they are ‘foolishness’ to them. Why else does the unbeliever: ‘mock’ God: and His Holy Word… the Bible? When a man or woman comes to Christ and ‘Truly Believes’… God ‘sees’ their “HEARTS” [Acts 15:8-9 & Ephesians 1:7-to-14]… and then ‘Seals’ them His Holy Spirit! Before the Holy Spirit indwells that True Believer… the person learns from their… ‘Parental/ Family Environment’. I was raised in a Catholic home… and yet: did not know Christ Jesus! Like many, especially here in America… where there is “ONLY”: a ‘Cultural Christianity’… but “Not” a Biblical Christianity. “85+%” responded to a poll… that they were Christians. Mitt Romney, who is a Mormon; claims to be a Christian. So does the large Mormon population in the USA; and yet: does ‘Not’ believe that Jesus is God –> but Satan’s brother. The former President Bill Clinton claimed to be a Christian! And even attended Church, with his Bible in hand; even during the Monica Lewinsky –> “Sex Scandal!” Their beliefs and that of ‘Many Others’… is only an “Academic Belief”… and “NOT” one of the “HEART!”
“Crippled by ‘Religion’ – 101”
*** (Isaiah 1:18) Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD Jehovah; though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my -> “HEART” -> so that I might ‘not’ sin against You [Lord].
*** (Romans 6:17) But thanks be to our God that you were the slaves of sin; but you have –> obeyed from the “HEART” –> that form of doctrine [teaching] to which you were delivered.
*** (Ezekiel 11:19) And I [God] will give them ‘one’ “HEART”; and I will put a ‘new’ spirit within you. And I will ‘remove’ the “Stony HEART” out of their flesh; and will ‘give’ them a “HEART” of flesh,
(Ezek 11:20) so that they may ‘walk’ in My statutes; and ‘keep’ My ordinances; and ‘do’ them. And they shall be My people: and I will be their God.
*** (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 [Holy] Spirit within you [John 7:38-39]; and cause you to ‘walk’ in My statutes; and you shall ‘keep’ My judgments –> and ‘Do’ them.
The Anointing – 101 [Blog about the Holy Spirit]
We learn many things by rote memory…! Many of which; we are ‘not’ willing to: die for! Only those things that are learned in the “Heart”… will change the actions of the True Believer. The moon is ‘not’ made of Green Cheese! If ‘You’ truly believed that it was… would ‘You’ be willing to die for that belief…? This is where the Holy Word of God comes into play. It changes us from the… “Inside to the Outside!” When the True Believer… ‘Reads & Studies’… the Holy Word of God… their “HEARTS” -> are transformed. Their thinking becomes that of the Bible… and they ‘discard’ their worldly thinking. Yes, that belief comes through the Head but… ‘Settles & Changes’… your “Heart!” That is purposely why Christ Jesus said… “Man does not live by bread alone… but by every Word; that comes from God!” It is written… “Matthew 4:4” & “Luke 4:4” & “Deuteronomy 8:2-3”. [Luke 6:46 & James 1:22]
*** (Mark 12:29-30) Jesus answered, "The most important is, 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord,
(Mark 12:30) and you must love the Lord your God with All: -> your “HEART” -> with All your Soul: -> with All your Mind; and with -> All your Strength.'
*** (Matthew 15:16-to-20) Jesus said, "Are you still so ‘Ignorant?’
(Matt 15:17) Don't you know that everything that goes into the mouth; passes into the stomach and then is expelled as waste?
(Matt 15:18) But the things that come out of the mouth -> come from the “HEART”; and it is those things that make a person unclean.
(Matt 15:19) For it is out of the “HEART” that evil thoughts come; as well as murder; adultery; sexual immorality; stealing; false testimony; and slander.
(Matt 15:20) These are the things that make a person unclean. But eating with unwashed hands: doesn't make a person unclean."
*** (Jeremiah 17:9-10) The “HEART” is deceitful above all things; and ‘desperately’ wicked; who can know it?
(Jer 17:10) I the LORD Jehovah search the “HEART”; I try the reins, even to give to each man according to his ways; according to the fruit of his doings. [Ecclesiastes 12:13-14]
*** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) For though walking about in flesh, we do not war according to flesh.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly; but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds,
(2Cor 10:5) pulling down [vain] ‘imaginations’ and every high thing that exalts itself: -> ‘against’ the knowledge of God; and bringing into captivity = every thought = into the ‘obedience’ of Christ;
(2Cor 10:6) and having readiness to avenge [Proverbs 28:13 & 1John 1:5-to-10] all disobedience; when your obedience is fulfilled.
*** (John 15:1-2-3) I [Jesus] am the true vine; and my Father [God] is the vinegrower.
(John 15:2) He [God] ‘removes’ [1Corinthians 11:30] every branch in Me [Jesus]: that does ‘not’ produce fruit; and He [God] cleanses every branch that does produce fruit; so that it might produce more fruit. [Hebrews 12:5-to-8]
(John 15:3) You are already clean because of the Word that I have spoken to you.
*** (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.
“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
Did ‘You’ know: in the Hebrew OT… that most of the times the English is translated to LORD… it is the Hebrew Name for GOD –> “Jehovah”…?
This is part of ‘Learning’ in the “HEART”… which comes from: the Holy Word of God. But what drives your motivation is learned in the “HEART!” Remember new wine is put in new wine skins [Matthew 9:17]! Your new life in Christ Jesus… does not fit into your “Old Lifestyle!” So also, your new mind in Christ… should be filled: with His Holy Word… which will surely change your agenda to: ‘Life & Obedience!’ Remember the Scriptures say: that Christ Jesus has called ‘You’ to be His Soldier! That obedience ‘You’ show to Christ Jesus… is from the “Your HEART”… [Matthew 21:28-to-31]… and not with the ‘Mouth!’ When Christ Jesus was confronted by Satan… He simply said… “It is Written!” The complete authority of GOD… is revealed in His Holy Word. Nothing can stand against it… as Christ Jesus will use the Holy Word of God… to judge the ‘World’… on the ‘Last Day!’
*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and does not receive My Words; has One who judges him; the Word that I [Jesus] have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.
“It is Written – 101” …Blog.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water; but of = hearing = the Words of Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my “HEART”; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
*** (1Corinthains 6:9-10-11) You know that wicked people will not inherit the kingdom of God, don't you? Stop deceiving yourselves! Sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,
(1Cor 6:10) thieves, greedy people, drunks, slanderers, and robbers will not inherit the kingdom of God.
(1Cor 6:11) That is what some of you were! –>But you were Washed; you were Sanctified; you were Justified; in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God. [Romans 8:9]
*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) Join me in suffering like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 2:4) No one serving in the military: gets mixed up in civilian matters: –> for his aim is to please his ‘commanding’ officer. [Luke 6:46 & James 1:22]
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one who is an athlete: wins a prize unless he competes –> according to the rules. [Isaiah 28:13]
*** (Psalms 19:7-to-11) The Law of the LORD Jehovah is perfect -> converting the soul; the testimony of Jehovah is sure -> making the simple wise.
(Psalms 19:8) The Precepts of the LORD Jehovah are right -> rejoicing the heart; the Commandments of the LORD Jehovah are pure -> giving light to the eyes.
(Psalms 19:9) The fear of the LORD Jehovah is clean -> enduring forever; the judgments of the LORD Jehovah are -> true and righteous altogether,
(Psalms 19:10) more to be desired than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
(Psalms 19:11) And Your servant is warned by them; -> in keeping them there is great reward.

*** (Romans 10:8-9-10) But what does it say? “The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your -> “HEART”; that is -> the Word of Faith which we proclaim;
(Rom 10:9) Because if you confess the Lord Jesus; and believe in your -> “HEART” -> that God has raised Him from the dead: you shall be saved. [John 7:38-39]
(Rom 10:10) For with the -> “HEART” -> one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth one confesses unto salvation.
