“That ‘You’ may Prosper – 101” …Blog.

“That ‘You’ may Prosper – 101” …Blog.

*** (3Jn 1:2) Beloved, in regard to all things I pray that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.

*** (Joshua 8:34) And afterward he read all the words of the Law; the Blessings and -> Cursing’s <- ; according to ‘All’ -> that is written in the book of the Law.

*** (Philippians 3:7-to-10) But whatever things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
(Philip 3:8) But no, rather, I also count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them to be dung, so that I may win Christ
(Philip 3:9) and be found in Him; not having my own righteousness, which is of the Law, but through the faith of Christ, the righteousness of God by faith,
(Philip 3:10) that I may know Him: –> and the [Holy Spirit] power of His resurrection: –> and the fellowship of His “SUFFERINGS” –> being made conformable to His death; [Romans 12:1-2-3]

*** (Luke 9:23) And He [Jesus] said to all, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
(Luke 9:24) For whoever will save his life shall lose it, but whoever will lose his life for My sake, he shall save it.
(Luke 9:25) For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world and loses himself, or is cast away?
(Luke 9:26) For whoever shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words, the Son of Man shall be ashamed of him when He shall come in His own and in His Father's glory, and that of the holy angels. [John 12:48]

Did ‘You’ see the “Sandwich”… in the above Bible verses? Do ‘You’… “Pick & Choose”… those Positive Bible Verses… and then “Leave OUT the Negative ones”…? Or do ‘You’ take the entire Bible in its proper context…? Many of the American NT Christians… falsely claim… those promises given ‘exclusively’ to Israel!  They then apply them to ‘themselves’ and then wonder why: God is holding back? Yes, in my pilgrimage with Christ… I have “YET” to see anyone “Claim”… “1Thessalonians 3:4 –> For truly when we were with you, we told you before –> that we were going to “Suffer Affliction”; as it also happened as you well know!” Many times, NT Christians have claimed… “3Jn 1:2 Prosperity & Health”…! What is wrong with this thinking…? Please re-read those Bible verses in this Blog. Do ‘You’ take Bible verses in the ‘totality of context’ or do ‘You’… “Pick & Choose” –> Only the “Prospers” ones…?

*** (Matthew 23:11) But he who is greatest among you shall be your “Servant”.

*** (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.

*** (Jeremiah 45:5) And do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for behold, I will bring evil on all flesh, says the LORD Jehovah. But I will give your life to you as a prize, in all places where you go.

*** (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!

“Take up your Cross: ‘Rejection’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 10:34-to-38) Do not think that I [Jesus] have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to send peace, but a sword.
(Matt 10:35) For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
(Matt 10:36) And a man's foes shall be those of his own household.
(Matt 10:37) He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
(Matt 10:38) And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.

*** (Jeremiah 48:10) Cursed is he who does the work of Jehovah the LORD deceitfully; and cursed is he who keeps back his sword from blood.

Do ‘You’ claim “Biblical Healing” also… with the verse: “3Jn 1:2”…? And then “Leave Out”… ‘Even as your soul prospers”…? How does your soul prosper…? No, I did not ask You… if You knew Jesus or if You knew where a particular Bible verse was. Knowing about Jesus & His Holy Word… is ‘Not’… “Knowing Him” –> “John 7:38-39!” Many NT Christians do not realize that a “Simple Mental Ascent”… to or about Jesus is… “Not Salvation!” Nor is it believing what your Church or Denomination believes! Do ‘You’ know… “John 7:38-39 & Isaiah 55:8-9”… by heart and can ‘Quote’ them…? Where then does anyone find what God requires of them…? Only in His Holy Word, “The Bible!” Those who have only ‘Religion’… do Not want any of what God says in His Holy Word! Little do they realize that it is... His Holy Word… that will judge all: on the Last Day…!

*** (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?

*** (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”.

*** (Matthew 22:29) Jesus answered and said to them, You “ERR” –> ‘Not’ knowing the Scriptures –> ‘Nor’ the power of God.

*** (Luke 18:6-7-8) And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge says.
(Luke 18:7) And shall not God avenge His own elect who cry day and night to Him, though He has been long-suffering over them?
(Luke 18:8) I [Jesus] say to you that He will avenge them speedily. Yet when the Son of Man comes, shall He find [True Biblical] faith on the earth?

*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation; beloved, I had need to write to you; to exhort you to ‘Contend Earnestly’ for the [True Biblical] Faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some people have slipped in; among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

“Earnestly ‘Contending’ for the: ‘True Faith’ – 101”…Blog [1/5]

Do ‘You’ see how easily… a Bible verse can be made to say: “Something it does ‘NOT’ Say!” That is how “False Teachers” so easily deceive the “Un–Knowing & Un–Learned!” That is why Christ Jesus called them… “Blind Leaders of the BLIND!” Can ‘You’ just imagine “IF” God healed every Christian who asked for “IT”…? “None” would Die and go to Heaven…! They would just be “Continually Healed!” This of course would violate God’s Holy Word… “Hebrews 9:27 & Ecclesiastes 3:2”. So too, many say, “Abraham was rich and we are to be Also!” Sorry… “No!” Please allow me to ask ‘You’ “Did Solomon with all his wealth, further the kingdom of God: –> or build heathen temples for his heathen wives in Israel”…? Of course he did the later; which caused Israel to sin even more!

*** (Ecclesiastes 1:2) Vanity of vanities, says the preacher; vanity of vanities! All is vanity.

“How Much is ‘Enough?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 15:14) Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

*** (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].

*** (Hebrews 9:27) And as it is appointed to men once to die; but [immediately] after this the judgment, [Luke 16:22-23]

*** (Ecclesiastes 3:2) a time to be born, and a time to DIE; a time to plant, and a time to pull up what is planted;

*** (Mark 7:6-7-8) He [Jesus] told them, "Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites. As it is written, 'These people honor me with their lips: –> but their hearts are far from Me [God].
(Mark 7:7) Their worship of Me is empty: –> because they teach human rules as doctrines.'
(Mark 7:8) You ‘abandon’ the commandment of God: –> and hold to ‘human’ tradition."

“Why does GOD allow: ‘False Teachers’? – 101” …Blog

Let me say first… God can do anything He wants! He can make some rich and heal others! But that is the “Exception” rather than the ‘Rule!’ Many do not realize this Scriptural principle… “To whom much is given: –> will much be required!” We are simply “Stewards” of what God has given to each of us. We will “Receive or Lose: Rewards”… based on our faithfulness! All who are Truly Born Again… “Need To: Know & Obey”… what the Holy Word of God teaches! How can ‘You’ do that “IF”… ‘You’ do Not: “Read & Study”… His Holy Word for yourself…? It is ‘Not’ how much of the Bible “You Know”… it is “How Much”… ‘You’ PUT: into “Practice”…! When do ‘You’ want to start…? “Now?” How about ‘Today’…? Remember, ‘You’ have a free will… and ‘You’ must “Choose!” Choose ‘Today’… and “Not Tomorrow”…! Not to ‘Decide’… “Is: To Decide!”

*** (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]

*** (Luke 12:48) But he not knowing, and doing things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For to whomever much is given, of him much shall be required. And to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

*** (James 3:1) My brothers, do not be many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so many of you are Weak; and Sick; and a considerable number are Dying.

*** (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].
