“Christmas Celebrations & the ‘Salvation Message’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (Luke 2:8-to-12) And in the same country there were shepherds LIVING IN THE FIELD, keeping watch over their flock by night.
(Luke2:9) And lo, the angel of the Lord came on them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them. And they were grievously afraid.
(Luke 2:10) And the angel said to them, Do not fear. For behold, I give to you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
(Luke 2:11) For to you is born today, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. [Isaiah 9:6-7-8]
(Luke 2:12) And this is a sign to you. You will find the babe wrapped, lying in a manger.

Did You notice the Picture for this Blog…? “Snow” in Jerusalem in December?
Surely after reading… “Luke 2:8”…. You can’t really believe that Christ was born on December 25…? “Hark the Harold Angels Sing” goes one Christmas Carol…. But “NO Where” in the Bible does it say…. “Angels Sing”…? Surely we MUST use the Scripture and… “NOT” Tradition…! I believe the Christmas Message to be… “REPETANCE”…! [Acts 17:30-30 & 2Peter 3:9 & 1Tim 2:4 & Luke 24:47 & Luke 3:8]

*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) And He [Jesus] said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me.
(Luke 24:45) and He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He said to them, So it is written, and so it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that “REPENTANCE” and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are Witnesses of these things.

“Christmas: The Baby Jesus: or ‘Christ as JUDGE’ – 101” …Blog.

All the ‘Varied Responses’ to my Blogs about “Christmas”…. Got me “Thinking”…! MOST of America and the rest of the Word: knows about “Christmas! One Question: to those of You: who are ‘Truly Born Again’ by the Holy Spirit of God: can You answer this Question…? During your LIFE TIME…. “Have You ever Heard a Testimony: from someone” WHO has come to Christ Jesus…. By Hearing the “Christmas Message”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”….? Did You read... Luke 24:44-to-48”… at the beginning of this Blog? What was “COMMANDED” by “Christ Jesus to be “Preached”…? Simple Answer: REPENTANCE”…! Not “Christmas or Easter” [Passover]…. But REPENTANCE”…! Where can REPENTANCE”…. Be found in the ‘Christmas Message’…? Please “Open your BIBLE”… and share it with: “Me & Others”…? Please…?

*** (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].

*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore bring forth: “Fruits worthy of REPENTANCE”, and do NOT begin to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I [Jesus] say to you that God is able to raise up Children to Abraham from these Stones. [Romans 2:28-29 & Romans 9:6 & Galatians 6:16]

“LICENSE: Confession Without REPENTANCE – 101” …Blog.

*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation; as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you; according to the wisdom given to him.
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things ‘hard’ to be understood, = which the ‘Unlearned’ and ‘Unstable’ = “Pervert”; = as also they do the rest of the = “SCRIPTURES” = to their own destruction. [1Corinthains 16:22]

Where is the Command for a: “Belief in Jesus” or the “Supposed Sinners Prayer”… found as a “Command: in the Scriptures”…? Do You ever “THINK ABOUT”… Exactly WHAT: You “Share & Preach”…. About the Salvation Message…? Surely the Gospel is “NOT Magic”….! Surely MOST do “NOT Speak”… about “Damnation & the Eternal Lake of Fire!” But they will ‘Surely’ share about Heaven and streets of Gold! Something is “NOT Right” in the Message given by “American Christianity”…! No wonder, that IN: such an ‘Affluent American Society’…. There is NO Need: for a… “Bible Jesus”….!

“Is the Gospel = Magic? – 101” …Blog.

*** (Hebrews 9:27) And as it is appointed to men once to die; but [immediately] after this the judgment, [Luke 16:23]

“The ‘HELL’ about the Lake of Fire – 101” …Blog.
*** (Revelation 20:15) And if anyone was NOT found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into theLake of Fire”.

*** (2Corinthians 7:10) For having sorrow in a godly way results in REPENTACE that leads to Salvation and leaves no regrets. But the sorrow of the World produces Death.

*** (Hebrews 10:29-30-31) Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy of punishment, the one who has trampled the Son of God, and who has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know Him who has said, "Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, says the Lord." And again, "The Lord shall judge His people."
(Heb 10:31) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. [Genesis 18:25] [1Peter 4:17-18-19]

*** (Luke 13:1-to-5) And some were present at the same time reporting to Him [Jesus] of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.
(Luke 13:2) And answering, Jesus said to them, Do you suppose that these Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans because they suffered such things?
(Luke 13:3) I tell you, NO! But unless you REPENT, you will ALL: likewise Perish.
(Luke 13:4) Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were sinners above all men who lived in Jerusalem?
(Luke 13:5) I tell you, NO! But unless you REPENT, you will ALL: likewise perish.

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

Do you Present an ‘UNBALANCED’ presentation of the GOSPEL...?

*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.

QUESTION: Do You share about God’s Command… “TO: REPENT”… at the “Christmas Time”…? Or are You FEARFUL: of “Offending Someone”…? Or could it BE: that You are…. “Truly Ashamed”… of your Testimony for Christ Jesus…? Even Worse: You have Never Truly Come to Christ Jesus…. “ONLY: [John 7:38-39] on His Terms”…? Have You ‘said & acted’ as You thought your “Church or Denomination Required”….? Perhaps You are some of the…. “MANY”… that Christ Jesus spoke about in…. “Matthew 7:21-22-23”…? Remember Christ Jesus Healed 10 Lepers [Luke 17:10-to-17] and ONLY ONE was a “True Believer”…? And he was only ‘Half Jewish!’ What do You really Believe about “Christ Jesus”…? Can You open your Bible… and “Defend your Faith” with… “Bible Chapter & Verse”…? Or do You just have an ‘Opinion’, based on what Others have “Said?” IF: You were to Die in the next 15 minutes… “Where would You spend Eternity”…? How do You know ‘That’…?

 Repentance – 101 Blog  [1/6]    
May I share…? I have a lifetime of watching Christmas “Movies & Celebrations!” Even though I know better NOW: I still must… “Check My Emotions”… when watching some of these Christmas Movies! They were Designed: to “Gender an Emotional Response” and then “Lock You into their Mindset!” It is the Same for those ‘Jesus Bracelets’…. “WWJD”…? “What Would Jesus Do”…? QUESTION: “Does that Pre-Suppose the “Presence” or the “Absence[Romans 8:9] of Jesus Christ”… “Within You”…? Emotions are Tricky and often Used to harm us. A certain funereal director Asked, “Would You want your Parents: Buried in Anything Less, than the Best”…? My response was, YES…! My parents were ‘Wise Enough’: “To Elect Cremation”…! The human body Decays and the Body returns to Dust! How then… is burial in a “$12,000 Walnut & Brass Hardware Casket”…. Going to Help “Either in Eternity”…? My Father “Rejected the Bible Jesus”, being a Catholic: but my Mother; I led to Christ: Only Weeks before passing into Eternity! She called me one night and I went to the Nursing Rehab Center to share Christ Jesus!
