“Your SILENT WITNESS for Christ Jesus – 101” …Blog.
IF: It were a Crime to be a “Born Again Christian”… would there be “Enough Evidence”… to Convict You…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?
*** (Hebrews 13:8-9) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today-and forever!
(Heb 13:9) Stop being carried away by all kinds of unusual teachings, for it is good that the heart be strengthened by grace, Not by food laws that have Never helped those who follow them.
*** (1Peter 4:10-to-16) As good managers of God's grace in its various forms, serve one another with the gift each of you has received.
(1Pet 4:11) Whoever speaks must speak God's words. Whoever serves must serve with the strength that God supplies, so that in every way God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. Glory and power belong to him forever and ever! Amen.
(1Pet 4:12) Dear friends, do Not be surprised by the fiery ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
(1Pet 4:13) Instead, because you are participating in the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that you may be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed.
(1Pet 4:14) If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God is resting on you. [Romans 8:9]
(1Pet 4:15) Of course, none of you should suffer for being a murderer, thief, criminal, or troublemaker.
(1Pet 4:16) But IF you suffer for being a Christian, do Not feel ashamed, but glorify God with that name.
Did You know that your “Lifestyle speaks Volumes”… “FOR or AGAINST”… Christ Jesus…? Of course, You thought it was ONLY your Verbal witness for Christ! Some time ago, I attended a Beach Baptism here in Florida. Some of the Pastors do this as a witness to Strangers. Others use a Church Baptismal Pool within the Church. I was Surprised to say the least, when a well-known couple at Church allowed their Teenage daughter to be Baptized. The two piece bathing suit she wore was… ‘Almost Missing’… as there was Not much there! One could see the older & younger men and their various reactions to her outfit. My Question was, “Why would a Christian ‘Mother & Father’ – Even Allow her Daughter to be “Un-dressed” like that”…? Each of us has a witness for Christ Jesus and “What Exactly” we ‘Truly’ believe. I was at a Wal-Mart and had bought some beer. My friend asked me, “I thought You were a Christian”…? “Yes I Am & No”… I do not drink beer: but use it to Cook any Fresh Sausage. Surely You have been to a state fair and had sausage cooked in beer? The World is Always Watching every one of US… ‘Checking us OUT’… to see how Christ is ‘Real or Not Real’… in our Lives…! May I simply suggest that there are Three  or more areas, wherein we Have Our Witness… “For or Against”… Christ Jesus…? “Spiritual” – “Social” -&- “Sexual”… are a few I would like to speak about.
*** (1Thessalonians 2:9-to-16) For, brothers, you remember our labor and toil. For laboring night and day in order Not to put a burden on any one of you, we preached the gospel of God to you.
(1Thes 2:10) You and God are witnesses how holily and justly and blamelessly we were to you who believe,
(1Thes 2:11) even as you know how we exhorted and comforted and testified to each one of you, as a father to his children,
(1Thes 2:12) that you should walk worthy of God, Who has called you to His kingdom and glory.
(1Thes 2:13) And for this cause we thank God without ceasing, that when you received the Word of hearing, of God, you welcomed it as the Word of God, Not as a word of men, but as it is, truly the Word of God, which also effectually works in you who believe.
(1Thes 2:14) For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also have suffered these things by your own countrymen, even as they also by the Jews;
(1Thes 2:15) who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, also driving us out and they do not please God and being contrary to all men,
(1Thes 2:16) forbidding us to speak to the nations [Gentiles] that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always; but the wrath has come upon them to the uttermost.
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding. [James 1:5-to-8 & Job 28:28 & Luke 12:5]
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a FIRE? Says the LORD Jehovah; and like a Hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? [Sword: Hebrews 4:11-12-13]
“WHO – is the Word of God? – 101” …Blog.
… (Proverbs 30:4) Who has gone up to Heaven and has come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know.
*** (1Timothy 6:11-to-14) But you, O man of God, Flee these things And follow after Righteousness, Godliness, Faith, Love, Patience, and Meekness.
(1Tim 6:12) Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you are also called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
(1Tim 6:13) I charge you before God (Who makes all things alive) and in the sight of Christ Jesus (Who witnessed the good confession to Pontius Pilate),
(1Tim 6:14) that you keep the commandment without spot and without blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.
*** (2Timothy 2:2-to-5) And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
(2Tim 2:3) Therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
(2Tim 2:4) No one who wars tangles with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him [Christ] who chose him to be a soldier.
(2Tim 2:5) And also if anyone competes, he is Not crowned unless he competes lawfully.
*** (Hebrews 12:1-to-4) Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
(Heb 12:2) looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God.
(Heb 12:3) For consider Him Who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in your minds.
(Heb 12:4) You have Not yet resisted unto blood [Death], striving against sin.
Covenant Israel, God’s ‘Peculiar & Chosen’ Peoples… were to be God’s Witnesses… to the World. When they Rejected Christ Jesus as their Messiah, this was given over to the NT Born Again Gentiles in Christ. Even so, “Jews for Jesus”… is an active witness by Jews to Jews of their Messiah. When this times of the gentiles be fulfilled [Luke 21:24], Christ Jesus will come back and set up His “Millennial Kingdom” and “RULE with a Rod of Iron”… as Satan will be bound to the Bottomless Pit for those Thousand years! [Revelation 20:1-to-7] Those Believing Jews will be restored to their Witness before the Nations! IF Only these… True NT Believers: Would KNOW their Scripture…? But “MANY” do NOT, Nor do they seem to care about KNOW: Exactly what their Bible have as… “Doctrine & Teaching”…! Why else would there be So Very MUCH False Teaching & Teachers…? Remember the PTL Club and their “Air Conditioned Dog House”…? No wonder they “Failed”….!
*** (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.
What about the “Social Aspect” of your Witness for Christ Jesus and His Kingdom…? Most of whom have LEFT Christ and His Kingdom and have Substituted the Corrupt Political System. Many American Christians [?] simply KNOW More about Politics, than they do the Holy Word of God…! MOST Cannot take their Bibles and Defend their Faith with… “Bible Chapters & Verses”…! But they CAN tell You about the Supposed Constitution and False Conspiracy Teachings. In their minds they have EXCHANGED the Kingdom of God… for Politics..! In either the OT nor the NT… GOD Never used the Political System… to change the Hearts of Men…! Even with all the Divorces & Re-Marriages into Adultery [Mark 10:11-12]… their Lifestyles speak VOLUMS of their witness: Leaving out God’s Holy Word…!
Did “Christ JESUS”… Say… “Some”… “Few”… or… “MANY”… ?
… He Christ, said… “MANY”…!
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I [Jesus] never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!
False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]
… Why does the Church “FORBID” a homosexual to ‘Practice’… and then “ALLOW” Divorced & Remarried Christians [?]: Mark 10:11-12… to continue to Practice their “Christian ADULTERY”…? What happened to… “Proverbs 28:13” & “Romans 6:1-2”...?
“Remain ‘Unmarried’ or ‘Be Reconciled’ – 101” …Blog
*** (1Corinthains 7:10-11) And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let NOT the wife Depart from her husband:
(1Cor 7:11) But and if she depart; let her remain UNMARRIED; or be RECONCILED to her husband: and let “NOT” the husband ‘Divorce’ his wife.

I remember being a Young Man… when I was Not Born Again. I always left a few buttons unbuttoned to show off my Chest. That has since shifted to the Women: who Show MORE as an attraction to Men. Attend Any Church here in America, and You will see… “Christian [?] Women”… and their Daughters, in various stages of “Dress or Undress”…! One could easily say that they are dressed in a… “Sexually Provocateur Manner”…? Yes, in a “Church Worship Service!” And those that “Know Better”… have seemingly Contracted: “Silence about this Issue”…? [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21] I once heard a country preacher say, “IF the barn needs Painting, Do SO…!” Some have taken that to the Uttermost [Gutter-Most!].
*** (1Peter 3:1-to-6) In a similar way, you wives must submit yourselves to your husbands so that, even if some of them refuse to obey the word, they may be won over without a word through your conduct as wives
(1Pet 3:2) when they see your pure and reverent lives.
(1Pet 3:3) Your beauty should Not be an external one, consisting of braided hair or the wearing of gold ornaments and dresses.
(1Pet 3:4) Instead, it should be the inner disposition of the heart, consisting in the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great value in the sight of God.
(1Pet 3:5) After all, this is how holy women who set their hope on God used to make themselves beautiful in the past. They submitted themselves to their husbands,
(1Pet 3:6) just as Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord. You have become her daughters by doing good and by not letting anything terrify you.
*** (Hebrews 3:1) Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.
*** (1Peter 1:16) For it is written, "You must be holy, because I [God] am holy."
(1Pet 1:17) If you call "Father" the one who judges everyone impartially according to what he has done, you must live in the fear of the Lord as long as you are strangers here.
(1Pet 1:18) For you know that it was not with perishable things like silver or gold that you have been ransomed from the worthless way of life handed down to you by your ancestors,
(1Pet 1:19) but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or defect.
(1Pet 1:20) On the one hand, he was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but on the other hand, He was revealed at the end of time for your sake.
