“The NT Born Again & Threefold Mediation - 101”

“The NT Born Again & Threefold Mediation - 101”

*** (Ecclesiastes 4:12) And if one overthrows him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is Not quickly broken.

*** (1Jn 5:5-to-8) Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? [John 7:38-39]
(1Jn 5:6) This is He who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by water only, but by the water and blood. And the Spirit is He who bears witness, because the Spirit is the
Truth. [Romans 8:9]
(1Jn 5:7) For there are three [3] that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one.
(1Jn 5:8) And there are three [3] that bear witness on the earth: the Spirit, and the water [Ephesians 5:26], and the blood [Hebrews 9:14]; and the three are into the one.

*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.

*** (1Timothy 4:15-16) MEDITATE on these things. Devote your life to them so that everyone can see your progress.
(1Tim 4:16)  Pay close attention to your life and your teaching. Persevere in these things, for if you do this, you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.

Are YOU Truly Born Again by the Indwelling Holy Spirit of God…? Does Your heart yearn to know More about His Holy Word and His Truths found… “THEREIN”…? When You are not actively studying His Holy Word… Do You Meditate on “His Holy Truth”…? The NT Believer must be continually growing in His Grace, Mercy & Love… or they will “Stagnate!” Do You periodically read the EXAMPLES of the Seven Churches of Revelation and see IF You show any such ‘Tendencies’…? Do You find your mind gravitating to the “Truths of Scripture”… or the “Pleasures, Trials & Tribulations”… of this… ‘Daily Grind’…? The secret is to ‘Prime Your Pump’ with His Holy Word: as Israel did, in getting the Manna before the Press of the Day, when the Sun Evaporated the Manna! Christ Jesus met with His Father, Daily… each day before His 18+ hour ministry days!

*** (Romans 15:4) For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, so that we through ‘Patience and Comfort’ of the Scriptures might have hope.

*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. [Worshiped]

*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the Word of the LORD.

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

Many look ‘ONLY’ at the Bible as a book of answers. Occasionally I will see posted on the Internet Social Media, such lists of problems and were to find Biblical Answers. Such thinks are an indication of an Academic approach and NOT on of Biblical Worship. IF You study the Bible for Answers as a Textbook… You then Miss the Worship about which it Brings… when on is… In Tune with His Indwelling Holy Spirit. He is the real teacher of Truth! Those promises by Christ Jesus that the Holy Spirit would lead one into… “All Truth”… is for Our Benefit! Meditating on His Holy Word, during the day, will surely bring about the Peace of God: no matter what the Situation! I have been practicing a Quiet Time, first thing in the day: almost all my Christian Days! When I was working… 8-10-12+ hour days: and when I was traveling domestically & internationally, I always got UP One Hour Early… to meet with Him, in His Holy Word! This simple discipline will bring about a Mind… that can easily “Meditate on His Holy Word.” The Principle is Simple! Remember the last time You were on Vacation? Your mind was Primed: to make the most of your Vacation! That is how it is… with a Daily Quiet Time! You mind starts the day, In His Holy Word: and continues throughout the day!

*** (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. [John 15:1-2-3]

*** (Matthew 5:30) And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away from you. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into hell."

*** (Revelation 3:15-16) 'I know your works, that you are Neither Cold nor Hot. I wish you were Cold or Hot.
(Rev 3:16) Since you are LUKEWARM and neither Hot nor Cold, I am going to ‘VOMIT’ you out of my mouth.

*** (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]

I do not watch normal Sports… because of all the “PEDS” [Performance Enhancement Drugs] which athletes take. But every 4 years, I do enjoy the Olympics. These Athletes are the culmination of “Intense Training” and “Self Discipline!” Once I heard a remark by a Long Distance Runner. He said that He never felt like Running. He admitted to throwing himself on the Floor and then running about ‘14+ miles’, before He ‘Felt like Running!’ That is the same Discipline that a Soldier has. He simply fulfills the wants of His Commanding Officer. Do You know that Christ Jesus called “ALL”… those Truly Born Again as… “His Soldiers”…? Surely You remember His Words…? Are You Continually “TRAINING YOURSELF”… with His Holy Word…?

*** (Matthew 9:37-38) Then He said to His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are FEW.
(Matt 9:38) Therefore pray to the Lord of the harvest that He will send out laborers into His harvest.

*** (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.
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one [either] who is an athlete wins a prize; unless he competes according to the rules. [Isaiah 28:13 & Luke 6:46 & James 1:22]

*** (1Jn 4:1) Beloved, do NOT believe every spirit, but try the spirits to see if they are of God, because MANY false prophets have gone out into the world. [2Corinthians 11:13-14-15 & 2Peter 2:1-2]

*** (1Corinthains 14:32) The spirits of prophets [True or False] are subject to the prophets [True or False],

*** (Matthew 24:23-24-25) Then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ! Or, There! Do NOT believe it.
(Matt 24:24) For false Christ’s and false prophets will arise and SHOW Great Signs and Wonders; [Miracles] so much so that, IF it were possible, they would deceive even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, I [Jesus] -> have told you beforehand.

*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation; beloved, I had need to write to you; to exhort you to ‘Contend Earnestly’ for the [True] Faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some people have slipped in; among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

*** (Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,

Can You find a “Threefold Cord”… in the Bible chapters? May I share some with You…? These next ‘Three Sections’ of Scripture: show such an “Example!” By Application of these Principles, Your Spiritual Growth is “Assured!” Of course, your ‘Heart Obedience’ is the Key! Perhaps “Try a Bible Memorization” application of these next three sections…? Then “Meditate” on them once You have learned them…? You are simply promised “Wisdom & Understanding”… beyond those Others: who do Not do the Same!
