“Are You ‘Crucified’ with Christ – 101” …Blog.

“Are You ‘Crucified’ with Christ – 101” …Blog.

*** (Galatians 2:20-21) I have been crucified with Christ, and I live; yet no longer I, but Christ lives in me. And that life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith toward the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself on my behalf.
(Gal 2:21) I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness is through Law, then Christ died without Cause.

*** (John 3:30) He [Jesus] must Increase, but I [Self] must Decrease.

*** (Galatians 3:2-3) This ONLY I would learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, OR by hearing of faith?
(Gal 3:3) Are you so Foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, do you NOW perfect yourself in the flesh? [Not!]

*** (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. [Romans 12:1-2-3]

*** (John 8:29) And He [God] Who sent Me [Jesus] is with Me. The Father [God] has Not left Me alone; for I -> Always DO -> those things; which please Him.

Did You meet with “Christ Jesus”… in His Holy Word: “Today?” What about yesterday or the day before? What about the ‘Last Week’: did You meet with Him, in His Holy Word…? Pleases answer, “Yes or NO”…?  Did You notice the above… “John 8:29”…? Do You do “ALWAYS”… those things that Please HIM: God the Father…? If You do NOT, then You are NOT: “Crucified with Christ”…! God is “Continually” speaking by His Holy Spirit… Who indwells ALL those: Truly Born Again! He is also speaking through His Holy Word… “Continually~!” Those who refuse to… “Read & Study & Obey”… His Holy Word: perhaps are NOT Born Again by His Holy Spirit! Say it isn’t… “SO”…?

*** (James 3:12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? [No!] Either a vine, figs? [No!] So can “NO” fountain both yield: salt water and fresh.

*** (2Corinthains 4:16) For this cause we do Not faint; but though our outward man perishes, yet the inward man is being renewed = Day by Day. [John 15:1-2-3]

*** (Luke 16:13) No servant can serve Two masters. For either he will “Hate” the one and Love the other, OR else he will Hold to the one and “Despise” the other. You CANNOT: serve God and mammon. [Self!].

*** (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. [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21]

Often, when I share such “Admonitions”… those “Carnal Ones”: say that I have a ‘Critical Spirit’ or that I am ‘Judging’ them…? Is this “True or False”…? Please answer…? How did I know to write ‘especially’ to them: about such a ‘topic’…? Surely, You do NOT think that I am a magician? I was NOT writing to anyone ‘Specifically!’ That is the “Simple Effect of Preaching”: the Holy Word of God!” Those who are His, will see it as an: “Encouraging Admonition!” Those who do ‘NOT’ know Him… see it as “Condemnation or Judging!” When You are driving your ‘Vehicle’, surely You do NOT: Yell at the… “Red Light or Stop Sign”…? Or maybe, ‘You Do’…? …LOL! …LOL! If You, by your own ‘will & discipline’… “Do NOT Daily” seek the Truth of God: within His Holy Word… perhaps You need to examine your: “Salvation”…? One cannot Love Jesus: WITHOUT: Loving His Holy Word…! He is the Living Holy Word of GOD… “Incarnate!”

*** (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?

*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) STUDY EARNESSTLY to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the Word of TRUTH: with Precision.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly, [Matthew 24:37]

*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

“Accusatory – 101”…Blog.

Perhaps You have never been discipled…? Or someone, shared with You: “How to Grow” in God’s “Love & Mercy & Grace”…? Just as a Baby needs Milk: before Solid Food, so those ‘NEW’ in Christ Jesus need ‘Instruction & Training!’ Any successful athlete, has had years of practice as a ‘Continuing Life Style!’ One does Not wake up one day: and then expect to run a… “26 mile marathon!’ I remember reading about one Olympic athlete who said that he ‘Never’ felt like running. He said during his training, the he used to ‘Throw Himself: Out of the Bed: onto theFloor!’ After about 12 or 14 miles, he said that he then: ‘Felt like Running!’ When we are crippled by feelings, we seldom do anything! Remember, even Christ Jesus prayed in the garden… “Father [God] if it be possible, let this cup pass!” It was only His, “Love & Obedience”… that drove Him there: to the Cross! How else was He, to become: the “Passover Lamb of God”… Who takes away the “Sin of the World”…? 

*** (Matthew 26:39-to-42) And He went a little further and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Yet NOT as I will, but as You will.
(Matt 26:40) And He came to the disciples and found them asleep. And He said to Peter, What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?
(Matt 26:41) Watch and pray that you enter Not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
(Matt 26:42) He went away again the second time and prayed, saying, My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.

*** (Hebrews 5:7-8-9) For Jesus, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong cryings and tears to Him [God] Who was able to save Him from death, and was heard; in that He feared,
(Heb 5:8) though being a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He [willingly] suffered.
(Heb 5:9) And being perfected, He became the “Author of Eternal Salvation” to ALL those who OBEY Him, [John 7:38-39]

*** (John 8:29) And He [God] Who sent Me [Jesus] is with Me. The Father [God] has Not left Me alone; for I -> Always DO -> those things; which please Him.

*** (1Corinthians 9:27) No, I keep on beating my body and making it my ‘Slave’ so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will NOT somehow be disqualified.

“Growing in God’s Grace – 201”… Blog [2-of-?] Continued.

Preparation is the One Requirement…! Surely You would Not go to work in, ‘dirty clothes?’ Surely You would Not go to dinner in a fine restraint, in ‘dirty clothes’, either? So when You meet with Christ Jesus in His Holy Word… Perhaps Prepare: your “Heart & Mind & Soul” for Worship…? Bible reading & study… is “Not” an academic practice: it should be one of “True Worship!” IF you have ‘un-confessed’ SIN… or at odds with a brother or sister in Christ: that needs to be cleared “First!” Would You meet with Christ Jesus… in His Holy Word… with SIN/SINS in your Life…? What about with an “Un-Prepared Heart”…?

*** (2Chronicles 12:14) And he did the Evil: –>because he did ‘NOT’: –> Prepare his Heart; to Seek the LORD.

*** (Ezra 7:10) For Ezra had Prepared his Heart –> to Seek the Law of the LORD Jehovah; –> and to DO it; –>and to Teach statutes and judgments: in Israel.

*** (Matthew 5:23-24) Therefore if you offer your gift on the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you,
(Matt 5:24) leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

*** (1Corinthains 11:23-to-32) For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was betrayed took bread;
(1Cor 11:24) And giving thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body, which is broken for you; this do in remembrance of Me."
(1Cor 11:25) In the same way He took the cup also, after supping, saying, "This cup is the New Covenant in My blood; as often as you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me."
(1Cor 11:26) For "as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you show" the Lord's death until He shall come.
(1Cor 11:27) So that whoever shall eat this bread and drink this cup of the Lord unworthily, he will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
(1Cor 11:28) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup.
(1Cor 11:29) For he who eats and drinks unworthily eats and drinks condemnation to himself, Not discerning the Lord's body.
(1Cor 11:30) For this cause many among you are Weak and Sickly, and many are Dying.
(1Cor 11:31) For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
(1Cor 11:32) But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

*** (Leviticus 10:1-2) And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered ‘strange fire’ before the LORD, which He commanded them NOT.
(Lev 10:2) And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they Died before the LORD.
