“Satan said, ‘You’ are “Not” doing ‘Enough for JESUS’ – 101” …Blog.

“Satan said, ‘You’ are “Not” doing ‘Enough for JESUS’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (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!”

*** (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) For such ones are False Apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves - into the Apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an –> ANGEL of LIGHT?
(2Cor 11:15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.

*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who secretly will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And -> Many <- will follow their pernicious ways; and because of them the way of Truth: will be evil spoken of.

*** (Matthew 24:23-24-25) At that time, if anyone says to you, 'Look! Here is the Christ!' or 'There he is!', don't believe it.
(Matt 24:24) For false Christ’s and False Prophets will appear and display great signs and wonders to deceive –> if possible –> even the elect. [not possible]
(Matt 24:25) Remember, I [Jesus] have told you this beforehand.

How much is ‘Enough’ for Jesus…? ‘You’ read your Bible for 15 minutes; but is that ‘Enough?’ Should it not be for ‘One Hour’ [Matthew 26:40 & Mark 1:35]? How about Prayer, do ‘You’ say morning or evening Prayers without a ‘Prayer List [Luke 18:1 & 1Thes 5:17]?’ How about an in-depth study of His Holy Word… or do ‘You’… “Only Read It [2Timothy 2:15 & 2Timothy 3:15-16-17]? This list could go on for hours… but ‘You’ get the point, “Don’t You?” How about the parent that neglects… his or her ‘Family & Children’… for the “Lord’s Work?” There are several whom I know that are “MK’s” [Missionary Kids]. Some of the Missionary Parents have left their ‘Children’ for others to Raise…! And then ministered to the “Lost Heathen!” Several today, do not have a relationship with their… “Parents or even Christ Jesus”…! What is wrong with that “Picture”…?

*** (Deuteronomy 6:4-to-9) Hear, O, Israel. The LORD Jehovah our God is one LORD Jehovah.
(Deut 6:5) And you shall love the LORD Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
(Deut 6:6) And these words which I command you this day shall be in your heart.
(Deut 6:7) And you shall carefully teach them to your sons, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up.
(Deut 6:8) And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
(Deut 6:9) And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates.

*** (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.'

*** (2Corinthains 13:5) examine yourselves; whether you are in the faith; prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you [Romans 8:9]; unless you are reprobates?

“Christian or: Born Again ‘Disciple’ – 101” …Blog
Once ‘You’ are Truly Born Again… by the Holy Spirit of God [Romans 8:9]… that is when the Real Spiritual warfare takes place. I can remember as a ‘New Christian’ wondering how God would use me. What Great Work, was I going to do for Jesus…? Of course, that was nothing more than: my Flesh. Somehow we think that we are to use our human abilities and purposes to do His Work. What I did not know, was that Christ Jesus wanted to… work through me… instead of me working for Him. My Flesh always wanted to “Do More!” Instead of relying on Him… my Flesh said: “Work Harder for Jesus!” Our Lord matured me enough over time; that my purpose has changed from… “Quantity for Christ –> to –> “Quality for Christ!” Like the parable of the pearl of great price, “Matthew 13:45-46.” Quality instead of Quantity. It is ‘Not’ how much of the Bible ‘You’ know… but how much of the Bible… “You Obey!”

*** (Matthew 13:12) For whoever has, to him shall be given; and he shall have more abundance. But whoever does not have; from him shall be taken away; even that which he has.

“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
*** (2Corinthains 4:3) So if our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are dying.
(2Co 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.

*** (Titus 1:15-16) To the pure all things are pure. But to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure –> but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
(Tit 1:16) They profess that they know God; but in their works they –> deny Him; being abominable: –> and disobedient:–> and reprobate to every good work.

*** (1Peter 4:3-4-5) For you spent enough time in the past doing what the gentiles like to do, living in sensuality, sinful desires, drunkenness, wild celebrations, drinking parties, and detestable idolatry.
(1Pet 4:4) They insult you now because they are surprised that you are no longer joining them in the same excesses of wild living.
(1Pet 4:5) They will give an account to the One [John 12:48] Who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

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

*** (Luke 17:10) So likewise you; when you shall have done “All” the things “Commanded” you, say; We are unprofitable servants; for we have done what was [only] Our = ‘DUTY’ To Do.

*** (Isaiah 6:8) And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said: –> Here am I: –> send me!

*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘Not’ of us.

“What are the ‘Greater Works’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Micah 6:8) He has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?
Somehow the False Teachers… have given Satan more authority… than God has in His Holy Word! Everything is a ‘Demon’ or ‘Demonic’ influence. In reality it is your “FLESH”… “Nothing More –> Nothing Less”. Evidently that ‘person’ has… “Never Read & Studied”… the Bible book of Romans. Have ‘You’…? Remember one thing… “Spirituality is ‘Not’ –> Instantaneous! Even Peter who walked with Christ Jesus and was the leader of the Jerusalem Church… was rebuked by Paul [Galatians 2:11-to-16]! Learning entails… “Un-Learning!” That is why the Holy Word of God is so very important for both the… “New & Older [mature] Believers!” The more of the Bible I know… the more of the Bible I realize… that I do “Not Know”…! Being teachable is the most important attribute of ‘True Biblical Humility’. Remember when we think we have become Spiritual… we are further from the “Truth”… than when we began. Simply read & verify this; with the “Believers” of the ‘Seven Churches’ of “Revelation 2 & 3”…!

*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed: day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]

“Helping those ‘New’ in Christ Jesus – 101” …Blog.
*** (Proverbs 30:4) Who has gone up to Heaven and has come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know.

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

*** (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.

“Are ‘You’… Teachable? – 101” …Blog.
*** (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?

“Satan” has absolutely… “NO AUTHORITY”… over those Born Again… “UNLESS”… they are… “In ‘Direct’ DISOBEDIENCE”… to God's HOLY WORD...!

*** (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.
Love; in Christ, Roger // “Psalms 138:2”…!
