“Is Silence always ‘Consent’? – 101” …Blog.

“Is Silence always ‘Consent’? – 101” …Blog.

*** (Proverbs 26:4-6) Do not answer a fool according to his foolishness, lest you also be like him.
(Pro 26:5) Answer a fool according to his foolishness, so that he may not be wise in his own eyes.

*** (Isaiah 53:6-7) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, each one to his own way; and the LORD Jehovah [God] has laid on Him [Christ] the iniquity of us all.
(Isa 53:7) He was oppressed, and He was afflicted; yet He opened not His mouth. He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter; and as a sheep before its shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.

*** (Acts 8:32-33) And the content of the Scripture which he read was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter, and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so He opened not His mouth.
(Acts 8:33) In His humiliation His judgment was taken away, and who shall declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth."

*** (Luke 22:40-41-42) And when He [Jesus] was at the place, He said to them, Pray that you do Not enter into Temptation.
(Luke 22:41) And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw. And He kneeled down and prayed,
(Luke 22:42) saying, Father, if: You are willing, remove this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.

*** (John 12:26-27) If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there also My servant shall be. If anyone serves Me [Jesus], the Father will honor him. (1Samuel 2:30)
(John 12:27) And My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? Father [God], save Me from this hour? But for this cause I [Jesus] came to this hour.

*** (Matthew 26:53-24) Do you think that I [Jesus] cannot now pray to My Father [God], and He shall presently give Me more than twelve legions (72,000) of angels? [Isaiah 37:36]
(Matt 26:54) But how then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?

This AM, before my “Daily Quiet Time”… I was preparing my heart [2Chronciles 12:14 & Ezra 7:10] to meet with Christ Jesus in His Holy Word. Do You meet with Him, in His Holy Word… “Daily”…? Or is everything in life… ‘More Important’…? May I simply ask… “What could be ‘more important’…? Absolutely… “Nothing!” This has been my daily practice, since I came to Christ Jesus, many years ago. Now I am retired, but when I was working… “8-10-12+” hour days, I dedicated that first hour of the day to Him. Not unlike the “Manna”: that Israel had to get before the sun arose! Even when I traveled ‘domestically & internationally’ for five years, did I get up an hour early to meet with Him, in His Holy Word! And even into retirement, do I continue this practice. How else could I have the… ‘where with’… to write these Bible Blogs…?

*** (1Samuel 2:30) And the LORD Jehovah, the God of Israel says, I said indeed, Your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever. = But now Jehovah the LORD says, = Be it far from Me! = For those who honor Me [God] I will honor, = and those that think little of Me shall be lightly regarded.

*** (Deuteronomy 8:3) And He [God] humbled you and allowed you to hunger, and then He fed you with ‘Manna’, which you did not know, neither did your fathers know it, so that He might make you Know: that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of the LORD Jehovah: man shall live.

*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear. But let NOT God speak with us, lest we die.
(Exodus 20:20) And Moses said to the people, Do not fear, for God has come to TEST you, and so that His fear may be before your faces, so that you may NOT Sin.

*** *** (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]. (Isaiah 29:13)
(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."

*** (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."

There is a Time to Speak: and a Time to keep Silent…! Do You entangle yourself with the Affairs of this World…? “Politics” and the “Religion of Politics”… of which Christ Jesus: “Commanded NOTHING”… for His ‘followers & disciples’ to Support…? There are So Very MANY: Christians [?] who know More about “Politics & Social Issues”… than they do about the Bible! Say it isn’t SO…? Perhaps a Question: How long have You claimed to Know JESUS…? “___” years…? Why then do You know MORE: about “Politics”… than You do about “Bible Doctrine”…? Do You know about… “Simon Zelotes” [Luke 16:15]… one of the 12 Apostles? He belonged to the “Maccabees”, a Jewish political sect… to free Israel from Roman oppression. “NO Where” in the Scriptures… after his Calling as an Apostle… did he ever protest against or speak against the Roman Government! Yet I see… “Christians [?]”… speaking out DAILY: about our Corrupt American Political system and their President! Can You provide ANY: “Bible Chapter & Verse”… that “Commands or Infers” that the NT Born Again… “Should Do SO”…? Or just perhaps You have “MISSED” what the Scriptures SAY…?

*** (Luke 11:33) No one, when he has lighted a lamp, puts it in a secret place, or under a grain-measure, but on a lampstand, so that they who come in may see the light. [Christ In You – Colossians 1:27]

*** (Matthew 5:13) You are the salt of the world. But if the salt should lose its taste; how can it be made salty again? It's good for Nothing but to be thrown out and trampled on by people.

*** (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness lifts up a nation, but SIN: is a CURSE to ANY people.

*** (Daniel 4:17) This matter is by the ‘decree’ of the watchers; and the ‘demand’ by the Word of the Holy Ones; = so that the living ‘may know’ that the = Most High [God] = ‘Rules’ in the kingdom of men, = and = Gives it to ‘Whomever’ = He will, = and sets up over it; the = LOWEST [Basest] = of men. [1Jn 5:19]

*** (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?

… American’s buy Over FOUR $ Trillion dollars in Illegal Drugs Including MARIJUANA! American Mothers have MURDERED Over 55,000,000 Million “INNOCENT” Babies by Abortion. American is the World's Largest EXPORTER of PORN & Abortion Technology! Americans Produce & Export PORNOGRAPHY to the Entire World…! How can God bless America…?

“The NT Born Again & Revival ‘2Chronicles 7:14’ – 101” Blog.

MANY post… ‘2Chronicles 7:14’… and ask for “Prayer to Restore America”…! Could it be they are IGNORANT… about what the Scriptures SAY…? QUESTION: Did God restore Israel… “His Covenant People” ISRAEL… after their “70 year Babylon captivity”…? Please answer: “Yes or NO”…? Why then should HE restore America: whose Nation has done… “MORE DEBAUCHERY”… than Israel? Do You believe such prayers for restoration of America… to be more Valid or NOT… than those for Israel: “God’s Covenant People ISRAEL?…? Could it Truly BE: that You do NOT: really know your Bible…? Or the God of the Bible… and are just a “Social Cultural Christian [?]”… and NOT Truly Born Again, by His Holy Spirit…?

*** (Isaiah 65:12) Therefore I [God] will number you to the sword; and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because I [God] called and you did Not answer; when I [God] spoke; you did Not hear and did evil before My eyes; and chose that in which I [God] did Not delight.

*** (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.

“The ‘Conditional’–>‘Mercy’ of God – 101” …Blog.

*** (Jeremiah 11:14) And you: do “Not” pray for this people, “Nor” lift up a cry or prayer for them. For I [God] will “Not” hear them in the time; they cry to Me for their trouble.

*** (Ezekiel 14:14) And though these three men: –> Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it: –> they should deliver: –> “Only” their own souls by their righteousness; says the Lord Jehovah.

*** (Amos 4:10) I [God] have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: = your young men have I slain with the sword, = and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have you NOT returned [REPENTED] unto Me, says the LORD.

*** (James 4:4-to-10) You Adulterers and Adulteresses! Don't you know that friendship with the world means hostility [War] with God? So whoever wants to be a Friend of this world is an Enemy of God. [Matthew 6:24 & Luke 16:13]
(Jas 4:5) Or do you think the Scripture means nothing: when it says that the Spirit that God caused to live in us jealously yearns for us? [Joshua 24:19]
(Jas 4:6) But He gives all the more grace. And so He says, "God opposes the Arrogant: but gives grace to the Humble." [2Corinthains 12:6-to-10 & Hebrews 4:16]
(Jas 4:7) Therefore, Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
(Jas 4:8) Come close to God, and He will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and Purify your hearts, you double-minded.
(Jas 4:9) Be Miserable, Mourn, and Cry. [Repent] Let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy into gloom.
(Jas 4:10) Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.

*** (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].

“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 15:22-23-24) If I [Jesus] had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had SIN; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
(John 15:23) He who hates Me [Jesus] hates My Father [God] also.
(John 15:24) If I had Not done among them the works which no other did, they would not have had sin. But now they have both seen and Hated Me [Jesus] and My Father [God].

“Berean or Bonsai – 101” …Blog.

“Berean or Bonsai – 101” …Blog.

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble than those of Thessalonica; in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind; and searched the Scriptures Daily; to see if those things were so. [Or Not?]

*** (2Peter 3:15-to-18) Think of our Lord's patience as salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him.
(2Pet 3:16) He speaks about this Subject in all his letters. Some things in them are hard to understand, which Ignorant and Unstable people Distort: to their own destruction, as they do the rest of the Scriptures. [1Corinthains 16:22]
(2Pet 3:17) And so, dear friends, since you already know these things, continually be on your guard Not to be carried away by the deception of lawless people, lest you fall from your secure position.
(2Pet 3:18) Instead, continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Glory belongs to him both now and on that eternal day! Amen.

*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain Because you have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have Become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil. [Discern]

The word “Bonsai” when translated from the Japanese… becomes "bon," a low-sided pot or tray, and "sai," a planting. Let us not confuse bonsai, as we often do, with "banzai," the word shouted by Japanese soldiers as they launched their suicide attacks on allied emplacements in World War II. One pronunciation denotes peace and tranquility, the other havoc and death. This Practice “BONSAI” of “Root & Growth” trimming is meant to ‘Purposefully’… keep the tree from it ‘Normal: Growth & Maturity’. This could be an “Analogy”… of what has ‘Happened’ to those WHO… say they are Christians [?]: here in America! They may readily share their Beliefs: which “May or May Not” be Biblical. Many can share their Church Teaching: but so very FEW… are like the Bereans WHO: “Validated Everything” by the Scriptures…! May I simply ask, are You a… “Berean” or a “Bonsai”…?

*** (John 12:48) He who ‘Rejects’ Me [Jesus]; and does ‘Not’ receive My Words; has One who judges him; the WORD -> that I [Jesus] have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.

*** (1Corinthains 3:13-14-15) each one's work shall be revealed. For the Day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is.
(1Co 3:14) If anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.
(1Co 3:15) If anyone's work shall be burned up, he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved, yet so as by fire.

*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so Many of you are WEAK; and SICK; and a Considerable number are DYING.

*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your best 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,

What happens when “ONE” is ‘Raised as a Christian’… “Without” being: “Born Again: by the Holy Spirit of God”…?  ... “Romans 8:9”…!

The Christian 'Parrot' - 101 ...Blog.

May I simply ASK: for how many years… have You claimed to be a Child of God…? “Many” say that they came to Christ Jesus, when they were children. “Some” say they were raised in a Christian home. “Fewer” still: can take their Bible and… “Defend the True Faith”… spoken about in the Scriptures. For an example, “Water Baptism!” Simply choose ten Christians and ask them about Water Baptism? You will most likely get… “Ten Separate Answers!” But, what do the Scriptures: “Really Teach”…? Can You take your Bible: and with “Chapters & Verses”… give a 100% Scriptural answer? The “Church of Christ” Denomination: “Preaches & Teaches” that one must be Water Baptized to be Saved! Of the Southern Baptists, “Many’ believe the same thing, yet Not all. Matter of fact, One cannot join that denominations Church membership: without doing so. Question: What do the Scripture Teach… about Water Baptism & Salvation…? May I simply ask, are You a… “Berean” or a “Bonsai”…?


*** Ephesians 4:5 One LORD, One Faith, One “BAPTISM”….!

… Is that One “BAPTISM”…? The Holy Spirit Baptism, “1Corithains 12:13”…” Please Answer… “Yes or NO”…? Or is it ‘SIMPLY WATER’, which ONLY gets one Wet…?

*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one Spirit we are all baptized [Ephesians 1:13 -14 & 4:30] into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]

*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]

*** (1Corinthains 1:17) For Christ did ‘NOT’ send me [Paul] to Baptize; but to Preach the gospel; not in wisdom of words; lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

*** (Romans 11:6) But if by Grace, then it is no more of Works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work. [Ephesians 2:8-9-10]

Water Baptism and Salvation – 101 Blog.      

You may go to Face Book… and view the “Many” Bible discussion boards and the comments. I have seen more “Heresy” and “False Teaching” by those WHO: say they are Christians! “FEW” say they are Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God! “FEW” can take their Bibles and explain the “Finished Word of Redemption” by Christ Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God! “FEW” open their Bibles and… “Read & Study & Obey”… the Scriptures “DAILY”…! May I ask You…? When You go to your Church: do You examine… “EVERYTHING”… you hear from the Pulpit or in Sunday School Class…? “IF Not – Why Not”…? Isn’t that what we are Commanded to Do: by the Scriptures…? Is the Holy Word of God your ONLY: point of reference for “God’s Truth”…? Did You know that… ‘Satan’s Camp: is in the Church’…? [2Corinthians 11:13-14-15 -&- 2Peter 2:1-2] He has the World blinded already! His mandate is simply to SAY… “Can’t We All Just Get Along”…? No matter what is Taught, “Can’t We All Just Love One Another”…? Is that WHAT: the Holy Word of God teaches… “Or Not?” May I simply ask, are You a… “Berean” or a “Bonsai”…?

*** (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.

*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of the LORD was unto them Precept upon precept; precept upon precept; Line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go; and fall backward [backslide]; and be broken; and snared; and taken.

*** (2John 1:9-10-11) Everyone transgressing and Not abiding in the doctrine of Christ; does “NOT” have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has ‘Both’ the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If “ANYONE” comes to you and does “NOT” bring this doctrine; Do “NOT” receive him into your house; “NOR” speak a greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who Speaks a greeting to him; Is Partaker of his “EVIL” deeds.

“The ‘Doctrine’ of Christ – 101”…Blog.
*** (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?

*** (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.

*** (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.

“1Kings 13”… is one of my Favorite OT chapters…! When GOD tells You to do something “OBEY HIM” & “His Holy Word”... No Matter ‘WHAT’… another ‘Supposed [?] Believer’… “Tells YOU”..! Please take some time and Learn from the Scriptures: this lesson. Too many want “Human Validation” [Luke 6:26] and are Not willing to stand alone. The early Church knew this lesion well: for many of them were… “Martyrs for Christ!” And the world saw their “Witness for Christ”… even unto death. Today, here in America, MANY go by what the News says: and fail to understand that WE have been called… “Soldiers for Christ”…! NO, Not for Politics: but for the Kingdom of Christ Jesus…! We are Not willing to loose family & friends: especially Christian [?] friends over Bible Truths…! What is WRONG: with that Picture…? May I simply ask, are You a… “Berean” or a “Bonsai”…?

*** (Acts 5:29) And Peter and the apostles answered and said; We ought to OBEY God rather than men.

The ‘Man’ of GOD – 101”…Blog. [1Kings 13:All]

*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) 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.

*** (1Jn 2:19) They went out from us, but they were NOT of us; for if they were of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out so that it might be Revealed that they were ‘Not’ all of us.

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