“Why Me LORD, – 101” …Blog.
*** (Psalms 142:2) I poured out my prayer before Him; I declared my trouble before Him.
*** (Psalms 56:3) When I am afraid I will trust in You. [Lord!]
*** (Job 5:6-to-9) For affliction does not come forth from the dust, nor does trouble spring up out of the ground;
(Job 5:7) but man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
(Job 5:8) Truly, I would seek to God, and to God I would put my plea,
(Job 5:9) Who is doing great things, even beyond searching; marvelous things without number,
*** (Romans 8:26-27-28) In the same way, the [Holy] Spirit also helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how to pray as we should. But the Spirit, Himself intercedes with groans too deep for words, [Romans 8:9]
(Rom 8:27) and the One [God] Who searches our hearts, knows the mind of the Spirit, for the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to God's will.
(Rom 8:28) And we know that he works all things together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.
When I was a young man… and before coming to Christ Jesus, I was quite a joker. After an honorable discharge from the Air Force, I went to work at an aircraft company. Like most, I often spoke “Ignorantly & Blasphemously” about God, as the “Man Upstairs!” One day Charlie, a friend and myself were working in the wheel well of a large aircraft. We ate our lunch there also, as the hanger was relatively quiet during lunch. I cried out, “Why me Lord, Why ME?” And my voice reverberated throughout the hanger. Charlie in a deep baritone voice cried out, “You have Sinned My Son, You have Sinned!” Shortly thereafter another guy walked over to us and said, “Did You hear that; God answered Him!” We did not have the heart to tell him, that it was US who did that! We both got a good laugh. Only after I came to Christ some years later, did I realize, “We are all hopeless sinners and are NOTHING without His, “Grace, Mercy & Love”…!
*** (Job 9:20) If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me; though I am perfect; He [God] shall declare me perverse.
*** (Romans 3:10-11-12) As it is written, "Not even one person is righteous.
(Rom 3:11) No one understands. No one searches for God.
(Rom 3:12) All have turned away. Together they have become worthless. No one shows kindness, not even one person!
*** (Rom 5:8-to-11) But God demonstrates his love for us by the fact that Christ died for us while we were still sinners.
(Rom 5:9) Now that we have been justified by His blood, how much more will we be saved from wrath through Him! [1Corinthians 16:22]
(Rom 5:10) For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, will we be saved by His life! [John 7:38-39]
(Rom 5:11) Not only that, but we also continue to boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom we have now received our Reconciliation. [Romans 8:9]
*** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [Galatians 3:2-3]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover, 1Cor 5:7]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].
“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.
As most Americans… we have a fair time in life. Because I have traveled extensively worldwide, I can honestly say, “Most of us, do NOT know: just how good we have it!” But this too, is in ‘Decay and Devastation’, as American’s MURDER, Over 4,000 Innocent Unborn Babies… EACH DAY, by Abortion! Just how long do You think God, the God of the Bible will permit this ATROCITY [Genesis 4:10] as we falsely call ourselves a “Christian [?] Nation”…? It is ONLY our money which says, “In God we Trust”…! Most American Pseudo Christians are embroiled in “Financial Debt!” This is simply ONE of the Curses [Joshua 8:34] upon those who Falsely call themselves, “Christian [?]”…! Most have Bibles but hardly ever “Read & Study & Obey”… His Holy Word! Say it isn’t SO…?
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your Truth's [John 17:17] sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.
*** (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.
“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
*** (Isaiah 55:8-9) For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the LORD.
(Isa 55:9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
*** (Matthew 24:37) But as the days of Noah were; so shall be the coming of the Son of Man.
*** (Genesis 6:5) And the LORD Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth; and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
*** (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." [Isaiah 29:13]
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].
“Not by Bread ‘Alone’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Luke 4:4) Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'One must Not live on bread alone; but on every word of God." [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]
What do You do… when a catastrophe happens in your life. Cancer, Death or a parent or child, job loss, divorce, medical problem, fire of complete financial devastation or: a Plethora of other Afflictions: “All Common to Mankind”…? Do You cry out, “Why me Lord, Why Me”…? As a Cancer survivor of some 10+ years, I too had to come to an end of my Mortality! Or do You open your Bible and immediately READ: “John 17:All & Romans 8:All”…? Those two chapters, Reveal WHAT: Christ Jesus pray for ALL those who are truly Born Again by His Holy Spirit. And our “Real Position” in Him as Real Born Again Children… “Children of GOD!” Those two chapters will bring it all in HIS Perspective and NOT that our ‘Temporal Short Sightedness”…!
*** (Job 2:4-to-10) And Satan answered the LORD Jehovah and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man has he will give for his life.
(Job 2:5) But indeed put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse You to Your face.
(Job 2:6) And Jehovah said to Satan, Behold, he is in your hand, but save his life.
(Job 2:7) And Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD Jehovah and struck Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the top of his head.
(Job 2:8) And he took a broken piece of pottery to scrape himself with. And he sat down among the ashes.
(Job 2:9) And his wife said to him, Do you still hold to your integrity? Curse God and die!
(Job 2:10) But he said to her, You speak as one of the foolish ones speak. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
*** (Matthew 14:24-to-32) By this time the boat was in the middle of the sea and was being battered by the waves, for the wind was against them.
(Mat 14:25) Shortly before dawn he came to them, walking on the sea.
(Mat 14:26) When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, "It's a ghost!" And they screamed in terror.
(Mat 14:27) Immediately Jesus said to them, "Have courage! It is I. Stop being afraid!"
(Mat 14:28) Peter answered him, "Lord, if it's you, order me to come to you on the water."
(Mat 14:29) Jesus said, "Come on!" So Peter got down out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came to Jesus.
(Mat 14:30) But when he noticed the strong wind, he was frightened. As he began to sink, he shouted, "Lord, save me!"
(Mat 14:31) At once Jesus reached out his hand, caught him, and said to him, "You who have so little faith, why did you doubt?"
(Mat 14:32) As they got into the boat, the wind stopped blowing.
IF one would ONLY take these two circumstances… they would have the answer about What was going on in their life. Job knew that “NOTHING” could press upon his Life, Health & Wealth, except it was FIRST: “Commissioned & Permitted” [Isaiah 45:5-6-7] by God! And Peter asked permission to walk on water, and then “DOUBTED” Jesus; because he took his “Faith on Himself” when he took is Focus OFF of Jesus and then Placed it on his “CONDITION” on the Circumstances of ‘Wind & Waves!’ Most of those who call themselves Christians [?], say that they would NOT deny Jesus! But in FACT, they do when they ‘Complain’ about “Circumstances and Lifestyle Challenges”. Who do You really Trust: “Yourself” or “Christ Jesus”…?
*** (Romans 1:17) For in it God's righteousness is being revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, "The righteous will live by faith."
*** (2Corinthians 5:7-to-10) For we live by faith, not by sight.
(2Cor 5:8) We are confident, then, and would prefer to be away from this body and to live with the Lord.
(2Cor 5:9) So whether we are at home or away from home, our goal is to be pleasing to Him.
(2Cor 5:10) For all of us must appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what he deserves for what he has done in his body, whether good or worthless.
*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the law, because "The righteous will live by faith."
*** (Hebrews 10:38-39) Now, "the Just shall live by faith. But if he draws back, My soul shall have NO pleasure in him."
(Heb 10:39) But we are NOT of those withdrawing to destruction, but of those who believe to the preserving of the soul.
