“How do I find God? – 101” …Blog.

“How do I find God? – 101” …Blog.

*** (2Peter 3:9) The Lord is Not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, Not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to Repentance.

*** (Acts 17:30-31) And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now [Strictly] Commands ALL men everywhere to REPENT:
(Acts 17:31)  Because He has appointed a day, in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man [Christ Jesus] Whom: He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto ALL men; in that He [God] has raised Him [Jesus] from the dead. [John 10:17-18]

*** (1Timothy 2:4) Who will have “All” men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth [John 17:17].

*** (John 12:32-to-38) And I [Jesus], if I am lifted up from the earth [John 7:38-39], I will draw all to Myself. [Psalms 98:2]
(John 12:33) But He said this, signifying what kind of death He was about to die.
(John 12:34) The crowd answered Him, We have heard out of the Law that Christ lives forever. How do you say, The Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man? [1Cor 5:7 & John 19:30]
(John 12:35) Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little while the Light is with you. Walk while you have the Light, lest darkness come upon you. For he who walks in darkness does not know where he goes. [2Corinthains 4:3-4]
(John 12:36) While you have the Light, believe in the Light so that you may become sons of Light. Jesus spoke these things and departed and was hidden from them.
(John 12:37) But though He had done so many miracles before them, yet they did Not believe on Him,
(John 12:38) so that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, "Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" [John 4:22 & 2Chronicles 6:32-33]

How do You answer a question like this one…? How do You explain to an unbeliever this question in a few minutes…? From my personal testimony, “I went searching for God!” Raised in a Catholic family, I knew that God was not there. In later life, I went searching for Him. Only after being Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God… did I begin to understand. GOD will reveal Himself to those… “Who are TRULY: looking for Him!” Yes, creation shows the ‘majesty & infinite design’ but that in itself; will Not lead someone to Christ Jesus! An Intellectual pursuit will Not bring God either, for in the ‘Intellect’: God cannot be known!  Only a sincere… “Looking for God”… with the heart will bring one to either: “Accepting or Rejecting: GOD!” 

*** (Proverbs 1:22-to-26) How long will you love simplicity, simple ones? And will scorners delight in their scorning? And will fools hate knowledge?
(Pro 1:23) Turn at my warning; behold, I will pour out My Spirit to you; I will make My Words known to you.
(Pro 1:24) Because I called, and you refused; I stretched out my hand, and no one paid attention; [Ezekiel 33:31]
(Pro 1:25) but you have despised all My advice, and would have None of My warning.
(Pro 1:26) I [God] also will laugh at your trouble; I [God] will mock when your fear comes; [Jeremiah 11:14 & Ezekiel 14:14]

*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD.

*** (Jeremiah 13:23) Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard its spots? Then you also may do Good; who are ‘Accustomed’ to: Doing Evil!

*** (Jeremiah 29:11-12-13) For I [God] know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says the LORD Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
(Jer 29:12) Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
(Jer 29:13) And you shall seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. [Deuteronomy 4:29]

“ETERNITY: in their hearts – 101” …Blog
Knowledge about, “God and Faith in God”… comes from “Him & His Holy Word”…! It cannot be found in a ‘Church or Denomination’. It cannot be communicated by… “Hearsay!” Is your belief in Christ Jesus: based only on what… “Someone told you about Him”…? Just suppose their information was ‘Mistaken or Wrong’…? Who then are You really trusting…? A made up story about Jesus…? Those False Pictures of Jesus… are a perfect example of this!  Surely the “Catholic Church” or the “Mormons” or the “JW’S”… do NOT share Bible Truth! Surely You… “CANNOT”… Trust: ‘What’ they tell You! Why then would You, trust “Hearsay”…? Can You take your Bible and… “DEFEND YOUR FAITH”… with: “Bible Chapter & Verse”…? If Not, just ‘Who or What’… are You trusting for “Eternal Life”…? Do You remember what Christ Jesus told those of His day…?

*** (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]

*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me: Draw [Compel] him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

*** (John 6:37) All that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus]; shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me; I will in no way cast out.

*** (John 5:39-40) You examine the Scriptures carefully because you suppose = that in them you have eternal life.  Yet they testify about Me [Jesus].
(John 5:40) But you are ‘NOT’ willing to come to Me [Jesus] to have life.

*** (2Corinthains 11:4) For if someone comes along and preaches Another Jesus than the one we preached, or should you receive a Different Spirit from the one you received or a Different Gospel from the one you accepted, you are ‘ALL’ Too willing to Listen.

“Is ‘Jesus’ God? – 101”…Blog.

Opinions about… “God & Christ Jesus & the Holy Spirit”… are like Armpits! Most have more than one, and they are sometimes “Stinky!” Do You ever get ‘Angry’ with someone who share a “Bible Verse” with You? Do You become “Defensive”, because You think that they are somehow: “Condemning You”…? Do You have that same feeling: when reading the Scriptures for yourself? Or perhaps You are ‘Not’ really SURE: “What You TRULY Believe”…? How long have You claimed that You are a “Christian”…? “____” years…? Can You take the “Sword of the Spirit: The Word of God”… and defend your own “Faith & Beliefs”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? [Ephesians 6:17 & John 12:48]

*** (Romans 10:17) Then Faith is of Hearing, and Hearing by the Word of God.

*** (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?

*** (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].

*** (2Timothy 2:3) Join me in suffering like a good soldier = of Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 2:4) No one serving in the military = gets mixed up in civilian matters = for his aim is to please his commanding officer. [Christ Jesus]
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one who is an athlete wins a prize = unless he competes according to the rules. [Isaiah 28:13]

*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know the Truth; but because you know it; and know that –> No Lie –> is of the Truth.

*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.

“Who is = The Word – 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?

You may simply tell the “ONE”… when they truly search for God: with their heart, He [God] promises they will find Him…! God promised that in His Holy Word…! “Jeremiah 29:11-23-13”…! And that God… “Cannot LIE”…! Titus 1:12 & Numbers 23:19”…! This will simply allow that One, to look to God and His Holy Word! Remember searching and knowing God, is a function of the Holy Spirit… “Drawing all mankind to Christ Jesus!” [Psalms 98:2] Because God looks upon the Heart, knowing Him is a function of the Heart! God even gives His real children a “New Heart” so that they will “Obey Him”… from the Heart! Religion has crippled mankind! True Salvation in Christ Jesus by His finished work of redemption… “Changes mankind from the ‘Inside’ to the ‘Outside’”…! [1Samuel 3:21]

*** (Ezekiel 36:26-27) And I [God] will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit [Romans 8:9] within you. And I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. [John 7:38-39]
(Ezek 36:27) And I [God] will put My [Holy] Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments and do them.

*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart." [Romans 8:9]
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit, Whom those who were believing in him were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was Not yet present, because Jesus had Not yet been glorified. [Acts 2:1-5]

*** (Ephesians 4:30)
And do Not grieve the Holy Spirit of God: by Whom you are “SEALED” until the day of redemption.
