“Jesus walked on Water: ‘Do You?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 14:25) And in the fourth watch [0300-0600] of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.
*** (John 2:3-to-7) And when they lacked wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, They have no wine.
(John 2:4) Jesus said to her, Woman, what do I have to do with you? My hour has not yet come.
(John 2:5) His mother said to the servants, Whatever He says to you, do it.
(John 2:6) And there were six stone water pots there, according to the purification of the Jews, each containing two or three measures.
(John 2:7) Jesus said to them, Fill the water pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
(Luke 13:14-to-17) And answering, the synagogue ruler, being Angry because Jesus had Healed on the Sabbath day, said to the crowd, There are six days in which it is right to work. Therefore in them come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.
(Luke 13:15) And the Lord answered him and said, Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loosen his ox or ass from the stall and lead it away, to give it drink?
(Luke 13:16) And ought Not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham whom Satan has bound, lo these eighteen years, be Loosened from this bond on the Sabbath day?
(Luke 13:17) And when He had said these things, all His adversaries were ashamed. And all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.
*** (John 2:23-24-25) And as He [Jesus] was in Jerusalem at the Passover, at the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the miracles which He did.
(John 2:24) But Jesus did Not commit Himself to them, Because He knew All
(John 2:25) and did Not need that anyone should testify of man. For He knew what was in man. [Romans 3:10-to-18]
*** (John 21:24-25) This is the disciple [John] who testifies of these things and wrote these things. And we know that his testimony is True.
(John 21:25) And there are also many things, whatever Jesus did, which, IF they should be written singly, I suppose the world itself could Not contain the books that would be written. Amen.
Can You walk on Water… “Yes or No”…? And NO, I am Not speaking about walking on a frozen lake! Today, someone said to me… “Jesus Kept the Sabbath, and so do I”…! Christ Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, was Jewish! He kept all the… “Whole LAW”… that was given to His Covenant People: “Israel”…! Are You Jewish…? What tribe are You from? He was from the Tribe of Judah. There is NO Jew today; that can ‘show or prove’ their Jewish Lineage! Did You know that: all the records were destroyed, circa “70 AD!” So, “Do You really believe You can keep the Sabbath”…? And do You REALLY: Keep it According: to the “ALL: Requirements of the Scriptures”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?
Perhaps we should see a list of some of the… “Sabbath Requirements”…?
· You may NOT… Cook…! “Exodus 35:3.”
· You cannot travel, more than 1/5 mile…! “Acts 1:12 & Joshua 3:4-5.”
· You put No one to Death for breaking the Sabbath…! “Exodus 31:14.”
· Do You, Sacrifice Two Lambs, without blemish…! “Numbers 28:9-10.”
· And You pretend to tell Others… “You Keep the Sabbath”…? “Proverbs 22:12.”
Siege of Jerusalem (70)
Christ Jesus did Many Miracles… to Validate… His Message! He… “Walked On Water” & “Turned Water into Wine” & “Healed on the Sabbath” & Many other things! But HE did NOT commit Himself to them…! “MANY” who say they are Christians [?]… have been confused by “Wrong Teaching” about keeping the Law! One more time, may I ask… “Do You walk on Water”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? Does Christ Jesus… intend for US… “To Walk On Water”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?

*** (Galatians 2:16) knowing that a man is ‘NOT’ justified by works of the Law, but through ‘Faith’ [John 7:38-39] in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be ‘Justified’ by the faith in Christ, and Not by works of the Law. For all flesh will ‘NOT’ be justified by works of law.
*** (James 2:10) For whoever shall keep the whole Law and Yet offend in One point, he is “Guilty of ALL!”
*** (Romans 10:3-4) For they, being ‘Ignorant’ of God's righteousness and going about to establish their ‘own’ righteousness, have ‘Not’ submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.
(Rom 10:4) For “Christ” is the end of the ‘Law’ for righteousness for everyone who believes.
*** (John 6:63-to-33) It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits Nothing. The Words that I [Jesus] speak to you are Spirit and are Life.
(John 6:64) But there are some of you who do Not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did Not believe, and who is the one betraying Him.
(John 6:65) And He [Jesus] said, Because of this I said to you that no one can come to Me unless it was given to him from My Father [God].
(John 6:66) From this time “Many” of His disciples went back into the things behind, and walked no more with Him.
*** (Galatians 3:2-3) This ONLY I would learn from you: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit by works of the law, OR by hearing of faith? [Acts 15:8-9]
(Gal 3:3) Are you so Foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, do you NOW perfect yourself in the flesh [Law]?
Please allow me to ask you a “Question”…? How does a ‘Finite Human Being’… earn their “Eternal Salvation”… from an “Infinite God”…? He or She… “Can Not!” Mankind is “Sinful” by nature… born in ‘Sin & Trespasses’… passed on to the Human Race… by the ‘Rebellion & Disobedience’… of Adam & Eve…! We are born “Sinful”… and that is why Christ Jesus came… to redeem a Lost Human Race! How then can a sinful person… earn salvation… from a Holy Eternal God…? They “Cannot earn salvation”… it is the “Gift of God”… by His Grace, Love & Mercy…! What it gets down to is… Who do You Believe…? God and His Holy Word… or what some Church Denomination… “Teaches”…?
*** (1Peter 3:15) but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready Always to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason of the hope in you, with meekness and fear;
*** (Isaiah 8:13) Sanctify the LORD of hosts Himself; and let him be your Fear, and let HIM be your Dread.
*** (Proverbs 29:25) The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever puts his trust in the LORD Jehovah; shall be safe.
“MANY” People CLAIM: to Know Christ Jesus as their Savior & Lord…? And then are “Completely Ignorant” about HOW Salvation comes About…? It is all a “Matter of Your HEART!” God provides His… “Grace, Mercy & Love & Repentance”… and You: Choose to “Accept or Deny”… “HIM”…! This Divine Transaction is DONE by God Alone! He sees your… “Heart Response”… and then Gives His Holy Spirit! That is what… “Acts 15:8-9”… is All About!
One More Time…!
“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” Did ‘You’ purposely miss.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!
“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (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.
*** (Act 15:8-9) God, Who knows everyone's Heart, showed them He Approved by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us.
(Act 15:9) He made No distinction between them [Gentiles] and us [Jews], because He [God] cleansed their hearts by Faith.
Could it be ‘Any Easier’ than that…? You simply respond to GOD…! Or You choose to “Reject Him”…! Salvation is being Born Again, born from Above by… the Holy Spirit of God! It is based on the… “Finished Work of Redemption”… by Christ Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God! “Religion” or your “Church’s Teachings” or Any “Denominational Teaching” it NOT to be Trusted! Only what the Holy Word of God… “Teaches”… is valid about Salvation!
Perhaps a “Simple Overview…?
… Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Our PASSOVER LAMB of GOD, 1Cor 5:7 & Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Out SABBATH [Rest] -> Matthew 11:27-to-30...!
… The TRUE WORSHIP of GOD... is a Function of the Indwelling HOLY SPIRIT [Rom 8:9] in our Hearts and NOT... of the Day of the Week...! AGAIN…
… TRUE Christianity is “NOT A RELIGION”…! It is a Relationship with GOD, by the “FINISHED WORK of Redemption”… by Christ Jesus [Messiah] the Passover Lamb of GOD [1Corinthains 5:7] Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Our “PASSOVER LAMB of GOD”…!
ONE MORE TIME… Christ Jesus [Messiah] is our -> SABBATH [Rest]! [Matthew 11:27-to-30]...! The TRUE WORSHIP of GOD... is a Function of the HOLY SPIRIT [Romans 8:9 & Acts 15:8-9] in our Hearts and “NOT”... of the Day of the Week...!
*** (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. [in Christ alone]
(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]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].

*** (Matthew 11:27-to-30) All things are delivered to Me [Jesus] by My Father [God]. And no one knows the Son [Jesus]: except the Father [God]. Nor does anyone know the Father [God] except the Son [Jesus], and the one [You]–> to whom the Son [Jesus] will reveal Him [God].
(Mat 11:28) Come to Me [Jesus] all you who labor and are heavy laden; and I will give you rest.
(Mat 11:29) Take My yoke on you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.
(Mat 11:30) For My yoke is easy; and My burden is light.
