“Do You have an Answer READY? – 101” ….Blog.
*** (1Peter 3:10-to-15) For he that wants to love life and to see good days, let him restrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking guile.
(1Pet 3:11) Let him turn aside from evil and do good. Let him seek peace and pursue it.
(1Pet 3:12) For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears open to their prayers. But the Lord's face is against those who do evil.
(1Pet 3:13) And who is the one who will harm you if you become imitators of the good?
(1Pet 3:14) But if you also suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. And do not fear their fear, nor be troubled,
(1Pet 3:15) but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason of the hope in you, with meekness and fear;
*** (John 10:25-to-30) Jesus answered them, I told you and you did Not believe. The works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me.
(John 10:26) But you did Not believe because you are Not of My sheep. As I said to you,
(John 10:27) My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
(John 10:28) And I give to them eternal life, and they shall never ever perish, and Not anyone shall pluck them out of My hand.
(John 10:29) My Father who gave them to me is greater than all, and no one is able to pluck them out of My Father's hand.
(John 10:30) I and the Father are one! [Hebrews 1:5-to-8]
You are either a Missionary or a Mission Field…! You either have the Answer…. Or You Believe that of Others! Many of those who call themselves Christian [?]… Cannot Open their Bibles and DEFEND: what they Believe with…. “Bible Chapter & Verse”…! In other words, their Faith is based on “Hearsay”…! What kind of Answer will they Have… when we ALL…. Stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ Jesus…? I do Not say these things as an “Accusation”…. But to get You to realize that there is MORE…. Than just claiming to be a Christian [?]…!
*** (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 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. [Christ Jesus]
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one who is an athlete wins a prize = unless he competes according to the Rules.
*** (Jeremiah 48:10) Cursed is he who does the Work of the LORD Jehovah Deceitfully; and Cursed is he who keeps back his Sword from blood. [Ezekiel 3:18-to-21 & Matthew 18:15-to-18]

*** (1John 2:19) They went out from us; but they were NOT of us; for if they were of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out SO that it might be Revealed; that they were “NOT” all of us. [Romans 8:9]
*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and does NOT receive My Words; has One who judges him; the Word that I [Jesus] have spoken; the Same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.
*** (2John 1:9-10-11) EVERYONE Transgressing and Not abiding in the doctrine of Christ; does “NOT” have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has Both the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If ANYONE comes to you and does “NOT” bring this doctrine; Do “NOT” receive him into your house; “NOR” speak a greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who Speaks a greeting to him; Is Partaker of his “EVIL” deeds.

*** (Isaiah 65:12) Therefore I [God] will number you to the sword; and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because I [God] called and you did Not answer; when I [God] spoke; you did Not hear and did evil before My eyes; and chose that in which I [God] did Not delight.
*** (Matthew 10:34-to-38) Do Not think that I [Jesus] have come to bring peace on earth. I did Not come to send peace, but a sword.
(Matt 10:35) For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
(Matt 10:36) And a man's foes shall be those of his own household.
(Matt 10:37) He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
(Matt 10:38) And he who does Not take up his cross and follow Me is Not worthy of Me.
*** (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.

*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding
May I simply Ask….? Do You tell Others that Christ is ‘First’ in your Life…? Do spend the First Part of your Day…. Meeting with Him…. “In His Holy Word”…? OT Covenant Israel were fed by God with Manna from Heaven. But the requirement was that it be Gathered… First in the morning…. Before it evaporated! This is a fantastic Word Picture for us! We all have varying levels of the ‘Pressures of Life’. All sorts of Demands are before us ‘Each & Every’ Day! Work, Family, Social, and those that we ‘Demand’ of ourselves! Just perhaps IF we would give our Best to Him…. “First”…? Meet with Him First…. In His Holy Word…?
*** (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.

*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above ALL Your name.
*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might NOT sin against You [Lord].
*** (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]

“Growing in God’s Grace – 201”… Blog [2-of-?] Continued.
As I peruse the Internet Social Pages…. Many seem to “ONLY Parrot” the Opinions of Others. My blood boils when I read those Silly Ditty’s about God. Isn’t the Holy Word of God… “Enough”…? One example, “God closes one door But opens Another!” Such silliness is used by Satan: for the “Unsaved and Simply Foolish!” When Christ Jesus did battle with Satan, HE simply Quoted the Holy Word of God…. “It is Written”…! And then He followed with the Appropriate Bible Verse… in its Proper Context! Another thing I see is Bible Verses taken… “Out of Context”…! The Bible text is the Context and that too is based on…. “Your Obedience: to His Holy Word”….! How many FALSELY CLAIM… Bible Verses…. When they are “IN Violation”…. of His Holy Word….?
Why do So Very MANY… take this Bible verse… OUT of CONTEXT…?

*** (Proverbs 17:15) He that justifies the wicked; and he that condemns the just; even they both are abomination to the LORD.
*** (Psalms 66:18) If I regard iniquity in my heart; the Lord will ‘Not’ hear me:
*** (Proverbs 28:9) He [she] that turns away his ear from hearing [& doing] the law [Word], Even his prayer is an abomination.

Do You have a “Ready Answer”…. About Bible “Topics & Questions”…? May I simply ASK: Would You be willing to TRADE some of your TV Time… for a Study in His Holy Word…? Self-Discipline is the Key: but You have to be willing to Use IT…! We all have the same “1440” minutes in the Day. Remember IF You are Truly Born Again…. You are a… “Stewart of His Truth, Mercy & Grace”… to share with Others…! Also to Defend the True Faith [Jude 1:3-4]… against that “Storm of Lies” that permeates all of society. Where do You start…? If You are Truly Born Again…. Perhaps ASK the Indwelling Holy Spirit…? You do Know about…. “Romans 8:9”…. Don’t You…?
