“2014 End of Year ACCOUNTING – 101”

*** (Luke 13:6-to-9) He [Jesus] also spoke this parable: A certain man had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard. And he came and sought fruit on it, and found none.
(Luke 13:7) And he said to the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three [3] years I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree, and find None. Cut it down, why does it encumber the ground?
(Luke 13:8) And answering, he said to him, Lord, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and throw manure.
(Luke 13:9) And if it bears fruit, well; and if not, then after that you shall cut it down.

(Hebrews 5:11-to-14) of whom we have much to say, and hard to be explained since you are dull of hearing.
(Heb 5:12) For indeed because of the time, you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again what are the first principles of the oracles of God. And you have become in need of milk, and not of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone partaking of milk is unskillful in the Word of Righteousness, for he is an infant.[Immature]
(Heb 5:14) But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, even those who because of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

What will CHANGE in 2015…. IF: You do ‘Exactly’… like You Did in 2014…? How can anyone expect DIFFERENT RESULTS…. When they do the “Same THING”…? I do Not celebrate the New Year nor would I do anything Different….. “Should Christ Jesus Return THEN”…! “Optimism & Positive Thinking” will NOT Magically change your Circumstances! “Change” must come from “Inside You”….! The Plane Crashes of 2014 do Not affect me! Even when I flew to Hong Kong in September. I am use to Flying Domestically and Internationally! Sorry NO, I do Not check the FAA Safety Bulletins concerning that airlines. “The Just Shall Live by Faith”… and when my Lord calls me Home…. “That is His Business!” Most are “NOT Prepared” for Eternity and are Shocked by such news reports of Tragedies! NOT Knowing the Holy Word of God…. And Your TRUE relatioionship with God…. “Always Causes Confusion”…!

*** (Ecclesiastes 3:2) a time to be born, and a time to DIE; a time to plant, and a time to pull up what is planted;

*** (Hebrews 9:27) And as it is appointed to men once to die; but [immediately] after this the judgment,

*** (Romans 1:17) For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."[John 7:38-39]

*** (Galatians 3:11-12) But that no one is justified by the Law in the sight of God is clear, for, "The just shall live by faith."
(Gal 3:12) But the Law is not of faith; but, "The man who does these things shall live in them."

*** (Job 5:6-to-9)For affliction does not come forth from the dust, nor does trouble spring up out of the ground;

(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 5:45-to-48) so that you may become sons of your Father in Heaven. For He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
(Matt 5:46) For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax-collectors do the same?
(Matt 5:47) And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax-collectors do so?
(Matt 5:48) Therefore be perfect, even as your Father in Heaven is perfect.

Question: do You begin your Day…. meeting with Christ Jesus in His Holy Word…? Or are your First Thoughts to check your Phone? Many turn on the TV & News! I am now retired, but have a life time [30+ years] of starting my day with Him, IN: His Holy Word…! Even when I was working 8-10-12+ hour days, I always got up…. “One Hour Early”…! As a New Believer, I learned this practice from Dr. Steven Oleford, from the Torchbearers in the UK. He published a pamphlet called “Manna in the Morning!” Covenant Israel had to get their Manna [Exodus 16]: their Bread of Life…. Before the Sun Rose and it ‘Evaporated’. So too, when we put Christ Jesus FIRST: and His Holy Word as the Bread of Life within our Minds & Hearts, we have God’s Focus for Life! NO one can ‘’ Say they LOVE JESUS…. Without Loving His “Holy Word”….! Because He is the Word Incarnate…!  IF: He is your Lord & Savior…. THEN: Isn’t it about Time for You to Practice His… “Obedience”…? [John 8:28-to-36]

*** (John 15:1-to-4) I [Jesus] am the True Vine, and My Father [God] is the Vinedresser.
(Joh 15:2)  Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away. And every one that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bring forth more fruit.
(John 15:3) Now you are clean through the Word which I have spoken to you.
(John 15:4) Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
(John 15:5) I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

*** (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.

(Isaiah 28:27) For the dill is not threshed with a threshing instrument, nor is a cart wheel turned on cummin; but the dill is beaten out with a staff and the cummin with a rod.

“Twas the Night Before Christmas: Parody – 101” …Blog.

“Twas the Night Before Christmas: Parody – 101” …Blog.

Following are a multitude of variations on the theme
of the famous Christmas poem.

Twas the Night before Christmas

Night before Christmas 2014, when all through America…
ALL were running Around, wanting their Christmas to be Perfect! Christmas Traditions has Replaced their Bibles and they Glibly Smoked Marijuana…. Thinking Nothing was Wrong!

Wanting Satan Clause to bless them materially… Leaving them “Spiritually Bankrupt”…!

Those 58+ Million… Innocent Aborted: “INNOCENT” American Babies… would NOT be Celebrating this Year… Nor Forever…!

Remaining Living Children were LUSTFULLY THINKING… of what was in store for them!

Mamma & I completely Exhausted and Completely In DEBT… swore [Again like last Year]…. Things would be Different Next Year and went to try a” Troubled Sleep!”

When on the TV… there arose such a Clatter, I jumped from the Bed to see what was the Matter!

I realized that it was NOT Enough, so I turned on my COMPUTER…. TO SURF the WEB…. TO SEE… WHAT I MISSED: TO BUY…!

Then across the Screen there came this Message: What You have Missed… You may Now Purchase with Free Shipping. 2-to-3 days Priority shipping!

My mind filled with Adds…. Which I before had seen…. Made me Wonder: WHY: I  had hesitated… Before!

The Santa who replaced my “Bible Jesus”…. And his Demon Team…. Soon had me feeling quite:  ASHAMED of myself!

Should I be the Hero to my Family…. no matter how much the Debt!

They brought in their Sleigh the Greatest Three…. The Lust of the Flesh, The Lust of the Eyes and the Pride of Life…!

The Jolly oh “Satan” dressed as ‘Santa’, commanded his Minion as he called them my Name….

 adultery, fornication, ,uncleanness, lustfulness,
  idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, fightings, jealousies, angers, rivalries, divisions, heresies,
 envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revelings, and things like these

These “Works of the Flesh”… were so Appealing to mine eyes and their Feelings so FINE…. That I soon put away the Consequences for their Violations!

They Came Un-invited into my Mind, Heart & Soul…. And I welcomed them as Friends…. “Willing to Stay!”

I willingly welcomed them into my ME: as welcomed & comfortable as had ever Been!

He did Not come as Satan… but as an Angel of Light: I could NOT ask him to Leave, for it would NOT Be Polite…!

His Dainties were a Fleshly Delight of whom I could… NOT Un-Invite!

*** (Proverbs 9:17-18) Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.
(Pro 9:18)  But he does not know that the dead are there; her guests are in the depths of HELL.

As I thought on these Things, I could NOT Refuse…. For all of my ‘Friends & Family’… simply shared the Same! Their Approval would be… the Best Gift of All…!

His Magic Lust and his Fleshly Fulfillment were ALL… that Seemed RIGHT for the Moment, I could NOT Refuse!

***  (Proverbs 24:33-34)  A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to lie down;
(Pro 24:34) then your poverty comes stalking, and your want like a man armed with a shield.

Then was there that… STILL SMALL VOICE…. Which Convicts me of SIN…. As I started to Examine my Agenda: “NOT from Above!”

With Pangs of Conviction I simply regained my “Right Mind”…. And Confessed and Forsook the Above!

*** (Proverbs 28:13) He who covers his sins shall NOT be blessed; but whoever confesses and leaves [Forsakes] them shall have mercy.
*** (Romans 6:1-2) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(Rom 6:2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

I thought on my Lord, from whose WORD I did Leave… for the Pleasures of SIN! Oh how I then: allowed the World to Come IN…!

*** (2Corinthians 7:10) For having sorrow in a godly way results in Repentance that leads to Salvation and leaves no regrets. But the sorrow of the world produces death.

The Thoughts of Repentance soon replaced that Lustful Spirit…. And with Humility: as I once again…. Submitted!

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word, and NOT merely hearers who DECEIVE themselves.

*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and do ‘Not’ do - what I [Jesus] say?

*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore bring forth fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

His Holy Word: I once Remembered, how His Word had Said…

*** (Hebrews 11:24-to-27) Having become great, Moses by faith refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,
(Heb 11:25)  choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a time,
(Heb 11:26) esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
(Heb 11:27) By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king, for he endured as seeing Him Who is invisible. [Exodus 24:9-10-11]

I openly Repented and Vowed out loud…. That Next Christmas would be for Others …. Rather than for Myself!

*** (Proverbs 19:17) He who has pity upon the poor lends to the LORD Jehovah, and He will reward his dealing to him.

*** (1Corinthians 14:40) Let = ‘All’ things = be done Decently = and = in Order.

*** (Mark 14:7) For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you desire you may do them good. But you do NOT have Me [Jesus] always.

Helping the POOR – 201

With all this Grace & Understanding I soon came to realize…. that our Nations Christmas… had LOST… “ITS TRUE MEANING”…!

Real Repentance has CHANGES: With both… ‘Thoughts & Actions’…. Refusing the Cutler… with its… “LIES & REACTIONS”…!

“LICENSE: Confession Without REPENTANCE – 101” …Blog.

*** (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. [1Corinthains 16:22]
