*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept; precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go; and fall backward [backslide]; and be broken; and snared; and taken.

Did ‘You’ ever wonder WHY… ‘You’ purchase “Things”…? Probably, ‘You’ saw an ‘advertisement’ about: ‘IT’. You did ‘Not’ know ‘You’ needed it: until ‘You’ saw their: “Advertisement!” Did the product manufacturer use… “Feelings”… to lure ‘You’ into that purchase? For the past few years, Makeup manufactures have been marketing an… “Age Defying Cream!” What ‘Scientific Discovery’ or ‘Magic’… can “Make or Suspend: NATURE”…? And the second law of Thermodynamics [Entropy]…? None, for we each continue to Age! This “Age Defying Cream” is simply a marketing gimmick for… “Vanity!” Yes, ‘You’ were once young; but “Nothing”… can stop or suspend the aging process. It is all part of the ‘Curse’ on mankind; for the disobedience of ‘Adam & Eve’. God said, “You shall ‘Not’ Eat”…! But Satan said to Eve… Genesis 3:1 “… has God [Really] Said: You shall ‘Not’ Eat”…? Did he appeal to her “Intellect” or to her “Feelings”…? How can it be “Wrong”… ‘When it “FEELS” so Right’…? Simply because… “God Said SO”…!

“How Much is ‘Enough?’ – 101” …Blog.
Life is ‘Not’ made up of two or three ‘Big Decisions!” It is made up of those millions of small ones. “Each & Every” day ‘You’ make decisions based on “Fact or Feelings”…! The electric bill needs to be paid… but ‘You’ want to go out to eat at that “Particular ‘Special’ Restaurant”. Do ‘You’ base that decision on “Feelings”…? Or on those ‘Responsibilities of Life’…? Depending on your level of maturation [Adult Maturity]… ‘You’ will make that decision… regardless of ‘Feelings’. Why is there such a Housing Crisis here in America? Adults purchased “Extravagant Houses”… which they could “Not afford to Pay” for… with ‘Borrowed Monies’… which they could “Not Possible Re–Pay” for…! Those ‘Wrong & Foolish’ decisions were made by… “Feelings!” The same can be said about “Credit Card Debt”…! And some of these “Foolish People”… say that they belong to Christ Jesus…! Ask yourself… “Do they ‘Really’ or: NOT”…? The can hardly sleep at night, worrying about the results of those “Foolish Decisions” based on… “Feelings!”

“Reasonable Service – 101” …Blog.

Do ‘You’ make decisions based on “Feelings”… before ‘You’ have checked: God’s Holy Word…? Do ‘You’ live your life based on His Holy Word… or on your: “Feelings”…? Discipleship with Christ Jesus… must only be based on His Holy Word. Why else are so very many Churches here in America… “Spiritually Cold & Spiritually Dead?” Long ago they ‘Departed’ from the Truth of His Holy Word. They have “Church Debt”… which they cannot afford to pay. So they have watered down the Gospel message. They have replaced “Bible Teaching & Preaching” with… “Entertainment”…! Say it isn’t “SO”…? Do ‘You’ enjoy the music at your Church…? Did ‘You’ know that… “No Where: in the Bible”… were Drums: ever used in the “True Worship of GOD”…? Surely ‘You’ heard the song… “Our God is an Awesome God”… sung in Church? Did ‘You’ know… “That SONG is a LIE: Based on Feelings”…? Sorry about your god [small-g]…! The God of the Bible… is the “ONLY GOD”…! To be Awesome… needs a “Comparison to Something! There is “NO ONE”… who can be Compared to GOD, the God of the Bible…! That song affects your.. “Feelings”… with Lies! Say it isn’t SO…? God’s Holy Word says…
*** (Isaiah 44:6) So says Jehovah, the King of Israel, and His redeemer Jehovah of Hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and besides Me there is = “NO” = God.

How easy & comfortable it is to our “Flesh”… to rely on “Feelings!” At one time… I had “Feelings”… that I should be “Driving a Lamborghini”…! I asked Santa Clause… but he did ‘Not’ bring one! [Joke!] Such is the absurdity of ‘Feelings’…which is nothing but “Vanity!” Most “Feelings” are based on: “Vanity!”…! Those “Truly Born Again” by the Holy Spirit of God… are continually “Reading & Studying & Obeying”… His Holy Word! Being a disciple of Christ Jesus… brings with it a different life style and outlook of those… “Passing Pleasures of this Life!” Our focus on Life is towards the Glory of God… and the Work for Christ Jesus… of presenting Him to all mankind. [Luke 24:44-to-48] Are ‘You’ His Child…? Is He your “Daddy”…?

“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
