“Redeemed Maturation 101” …Blog.

“Redeemed Maturation  101” …Blog.

*** (Psalms 37:25) I have been young, and am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, or his seed begging bread.

*** (1Corinthians 13:11-12-13) When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways.
(1Cor 13:12) Now we see only a blurred reflection in a mirror, but then we will see face to face. Now what I know is incomplete, but then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.
(1Cor 13:13) Right now three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

“Salvation is Instantaneous – Understanding Grace is NOT – 101” …Blog.
*** (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.

*** (Luke 16:13) No servant can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [Self].

“Letting ‘GO’ of Self – 101” …Blog.

May I simply ask You…? “How long have You been ‘Born Again’ by the Holy Spirit of God”…? “__- years?” Do You help your ‘Brother’s & Sisters’ in Christ… “Grow Spiritually”…? Can You explain the Complete Gospel, to an unbeliever: both the “Good News of Salvation” and the “Damnation” of Hell: to those Who Reject the… “Love & Mercy & Salvation”… of the Finished Work of Redemption, by Christ Jesus…? Do You meet with Him: in His Holy Word: “Daily”…? Can You identify the “True Faith” from the “False Faith”…? What can You share from the Scriptures about the Holy Spirit… and HOW: He ‘Eternally’ seals, the True Believer…? IF You do Not know these basics of the Faith: how then do You share Salvation: with “Others”…?

*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are Not discouraged. No, even IF our outer man is wearing out, our Inner man is being Renewed: Day by Day. [2Timothy 2:15-16]

*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so Many of you [Christians] are WEAK; and SICK; and a Considerable number are DYING. [Acts 17:11]

*** (Luke 13:6) Then Jesus told them this parable: "A man had a fig tree that had been planted in his vineyard. He went to look for fruit on it but didn't find any.
(Luke 13:7) So he said to the gardener, 'Look here! For three [3] years I have been coming to look for Fruit on this tree but haven't found any [0]. Cut it down! Why should it waste the soil?'
(Luke 13:8) But the gardener replied, 'Sir, leave it alone for one [1] more year, until I dig around it and fertilize it.
(Luke 13:9) Maybe next year it'll bear fruit. If Not, then cut it down.'"

*** (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.
(1Cor 3:14) If anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If anyone's work shall be burned up, he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved, yet so as by fire.

*** (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.

*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the Fruit of the [Holy] Spirit consists of every form of Goodness, Righteousness, and “TRUTH”. [2Peter 1:1-to-10]

*** (1Jn 4:4) You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because HE, “WHO” is in you: is Greater than he [Satan] who is in the world. [Romans 8:9]

“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.

When You witness to an Unbeliever… do You “WARN” him or her… that God “DISCIPLINES”, His real children…? Have You experienced God’s Chastening in your Life…? IF you have Children, do You allow them to get away with THINGS: that God would NOT let His children get away with: because they are Children…? Does GOD have TWO Standards: one for Children & one for Adults…? “Absolutely, “NOT”…!

*** (Hebrews 12:6-7) for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and He scourges every son whom He receives." [John 15:1-2-3]
(Heb 12:7) If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons, for what son is he Whom the Father does Not chasten? [None!]

*** (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.

*** (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.

“Pick & Choose ‘Christian’s’? – 101”
*** (Isaiah 32:17) And the work of righteousness shall be Peace; and the service of righteousness shall be Quietness and Hope forever.

Do You meet with Christ Jesus “DAILY”… in His Holy Word..? Does His Indwelling Holy Spirit… “Teach You”… from the Scriptures…? Or do You simply “Parrot”… what You hear from someone else…? Do You have a… “Dedicated Time”… ‘Separate’ from the other 24 hour day: where You commune with Him, in His Holy Word…? Or do You somehow… “Magically Believe”… that No Effort is REQUIRED: on your part…? And by ‘Simple Osmosis’ you will grow Spiritually…? Remember ‘YOU’ cannot lead anyone… “Any Further Spiritually”… than You have come!

*** (2Peter 1:16) For “NOT” having followed fables having been cunningly devised, but becoming eyewitnesses of the “Majesty of Jesus Christ”, we made known TO you the power and coming of our Lord. [John 12:48]

“Is the Gospel = Magic? – 101” …Blog.

*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water; but of = Hearing = the Words of the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].

*** (1Corinthians 9:27) No, I keep on beating my body and making it my Slave so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not somehow be disqualified. [John 10:27-28-29]

*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) And that from a CHILD you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 3:16) All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in righteousness:
(2Tim 3:17) That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Doctrine       = One Way…!
Reproof         = Wrong Way…!
Correction    = Turn Around…!
Instruction   = Only This Way…!

*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) STUDY EARNESTLY 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,

*** (1Corinthains 14:8-8-10) For example, if a bugle doesn't sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?
(1Cor 14:9) In the same way, unless you speak an intelligible message with your tongue, how will anyone know what is being said? You'll be talking into the air!
(1Cor 14:10) There are, I suppose, many different languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning.

*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does NOT love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be Accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes! [Again]
