(1Thes 5:24) FAITHFUL is He Who called you, Who also will do it. [2Corinthians 4:7]

*** (1Corinthains 4:2) And the rest, it is sought among stewards that one be found “FAITHFUL”.

*** (2Peter 1:1-to-13) Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained LIKE PRECIOUS FAITH with us through the righteousness of our God and our Savior Jesus Christ,
(2Pet 1:2) GRACE and PEACE be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, [Isaiah 32:17]
(2Pet 1:3) according as His Divine Power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him Who has called us to GLORY and VIRTUE,
(2Pet 1:4) through which He has GIVEN to us Exceedingly Great and Precious PROMISSES, so that by these you might be partakers of the DIVINE NATURE, having ESCAPED the corruption that is in the world through lust. [Romans 8:9]
(2Pet 1:5) But also in this very thing, bringing in ALL DILIGENCE, filling out your FAITH with VIRTUE, and with Virtue, KNOWLDGE;
(2Pet 1:6) and with Knowledge SELF-CONTROL, and with Self-control, PATIENCE, and with Patience, GODLINESS,
(2Pet 1:7) and with Godliness, BROTHERLY KINDNESS, and with Brotherly Kindness, LOVE.

(2Pet 1:12)  Therefore I will NOT NEGLECT to put you ALWAYS IN REMEMBERENCE of these things, though you know them and are ESTABLIDHED in the present Truth. [John 17:17]
(2Pet 1:13) But I think it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle [body], TO STIR YOU UP -> BY A REMINDER,

*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.

*** (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.

May I simply Ask You…? Do You have these… “Christian Character TRAITS”… in your life? IF: You do Not… THEN: You will surely to be… “Led Astray” by: False Teachers…! This list is ‘NOT Complete’… but ‘Only’ a few of the Scriptures: to whet your appetite: for more “Spiritual Food!” “MOST” who call themselves Christians [?]… Do NOT: “Read & Study & Obey” their Bibles. “MOST” cannot “Defend” what they ‘Believe’ with… “Bible Doctrine: Chapters & Verses”…! They will readily tell You: what their ‘Church or Denomination’… “Believes & Teaches!” When presented with: “Contradictory Bible TRUTH”… they will start with ‘Name Calling!’ Recently one told me… “Get thee behind me Satan!” I simply presented more Bible Truth…!  May I ask… “How does One: “Overcome –> The World: The Flesh & Satan”…? My Bible tells me… “Jesus Paid It ALL”…! And that I am to… “DIE To Myself”… and become… “Alive To Christ!”  

“Is Christian ‘Obedience’… Optional? – 101”…Blog.

*** (1Corinthains 15:31) I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

*** (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.

*** (Isaiah 32:17) And the work of righteousness shall be Peace; and the service of righteousness shall be Quietness and Hope forever.

*** (Romans 12:1-to-4) I therefore urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercies, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices that are holy and pleasing to God, for this is the reasonable way for you to worship.
(Rom 12:2) “Do Not” be conformed to this world; but continually be transformed by the Renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God's will is -> what is proper, pleasing, and perfect. [2Corinthains 10:3-to-6]
(Rom 12:3) For by the grace given to me I ask every one of you ‘Not’ to think of yourself more highly than you should think; rather to think of yourself with sober judgment on the measure of Faith that God has Assigned: each of you.
(Rom 12:4) For we have many parts in one body; but these parts do ‘Not’ all have the same function [office].

“Reasonable Service – 101” …Blog.

Surely You know about… walking in the Spirit [Romans 8] and the “Fruit of the Spirit” and the “Works of the Flesh”: from Galatians 5…?  The problem with such “Bible Lists”… is that we become “Crippled”: to any further ‘Scriptural Discussions!’ It has become an “Academic Pursuit” to know Bible Verses rather than to THE… “Complete Letter & Spirit”… of His Holy Word. Before You read this Bible Blog: what did You know about… “Christian Character”…? Before you read Galatians 5… what did You know about the… “Fruit of the Holy Spirit”…? Did You know, there are “MORE”…? Could ONE call “2Peter 1:1-to-13”… the Fruit of the Spirit… “ALSO?” To that, I would have to answer… “YES”… because of: “Romans 7:18-to-25”…!

*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the Fruit of the [Holy] Spirit consists of every form of Goodness, Righteousness, and “TRUTH”. [Psalms 119:97-to-104]

“The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – 101”…Blog. [1/7]
*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.

Is there now or has there ‘Ever’ been any “Good in You”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? What does the above Bible verse say…? In our Flesh, we always want some type of… “Human Validation!” We are taught this by our society! Mankind is always putting forth “Heroes”… so that MAN can get the “Accolades” and… “Not GOD!” Seldom is… ‘Serving Others… spoken about by the World. Why else do people hate the Bible…? The Bible always shows the “Frailty & Sinfulness” of Human Nature. Those ‘Bible Heroes’ and their relationship with God: IS What ‘REALLY’ made them “Who: they Really Were!” Simply PUT: “Forgiven”…!

*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to You -> when “ALL” men shall speak well of You! For so their fathers did to the False Prophets.

*** (Romans 2:14) For when the nations [Gentiles], who do not have the Law, do by nature the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law unto themselves;
(Rom 2:15) who show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and the thoughts between one another ‘Accusing’ or even ‘Excusing’ one another,

*** (Jeremiah 45:5) And do you seek great things for yourself? Do Not seek them; for behold, I will bring evil on all flesh, says the LORD Jehovah. But I will give your life to you as a prize, in all places where you go.

*** (Luke 18:18-19) Then an official asked Jesus, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
(Luke 18:19) Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? Nobody is good except for “One” –> “God”. [Genesis 18:25]

“None good but ‘One’ [God] -101” …Blog.
Someone asked me about these “Bible Blogs”…? I do Not write them to show my Bible ‘Knowledge & Understanding’: because all of that Ultimately comes from His Indwelling Holy Spirit. The Title: “Handling the Truth”… is simply a way to express the varied “Applications” of His Holy Word… for only some Spiritual things that pertain to: “Our Walk with HIM… in His Holy Word!” The REST: You will have to find out for Yourself: As You “Read & Study & Obey”: His Holy Word…!

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word; and “NOT” merely hearers who “Deceive” themselves.

*** (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.
(Exo 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.

*** (Hebrews 10:12-to-18) But this Man [Christ], = after He had offered = one sacrifice for [all] sins = forever, = sat down on the right of God,
(Heb 10:13) from then on = expecting until = His enemies are made His footstool.
(Heb 10:14) For by ‘one’ offering = He [Jesus] =has perfected = forever = those who are sanctified.
(Heb 10:15) The Holy Spirit = also is a witness to us; = for after He had said before,
(Heb 10:16) "This is the [new] covenant = that I will make with them = after those days, = says the Lord [God]; = I will put “My Laws” = into their ‘hearts’, = and = in their ‘minds’ = I will write them,"
(Heb 10:17) also He adds, = "Their sins and their iniquities = I will remember = ‘no’ more."
(Heb 10:18) Now where remission of these is, = there is ‘no’ more offering = for sin.

*** (1Peter 4:17-18) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
