*** (John 14:15) If you love Me [Jesus], keep My commandments.
(John 14:16) And I will pray the Father [God], and He shall give you another Comforter [Holy Spirit], so that He may be with you forever,
(John 14:17) the Spirit of Truth [Romans 8:9], Whom the world cannot receive because it does Not see Him Nor know Him [John 16:7-to-15]. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you. [John 7:38-39]
(John 14:18) I will Not leave you orphans. I will come to you. [Hebrews 13:5]

*** (1Samuel 2:30) And the LORD Jehovah, the God of Israel says, I said indeed, Your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever. = But now Jehovah the LORD says, = Be it far from Me! = For those who honor Me [God] I will honor, = and those that think little of Me shall be lightly regarded.
*** (Romans 8:15-16-17) For you have Not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba, Father! [Daddy!]
(Rom 8:16) The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we Are the children of God.
(Rom 8:17) And if we are children, then we are heirs; heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ; so that if we suffer with Him, we may also be glorified together.

Today, here in America… “Many” who say they are Christians, have Not been Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God! They are simply… “Pseudo CULTURAL Christians”… who live in that identification: AND, Yet Not in “Practical Obedience” to His Holy Word, the Bible! Knowing about the Bible and some of the Doctrines of the Bible… “Does NOT” make One: Born Again by His Holy Spirit! “MANY” cannot take their Bibles and DEFEND: their “Supposed Faith?” They will readily tell You WHAT they believe… “Without Providing PROOF”… with their Bibles, “Chapters & Verses!” Their supposed Faith: is based on their “Denominational Hearsay”…! It goes like this, “What do You Believe?” I believe what my Church teaches! And what does your Church teach…? My Church teaches what our Pastor believes & teaches! What does your Pastor believe & teach? Well, we ALL believe the… “Same Thing!”
*** (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 never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you! For so their fathers did to the “False Prophets”.
*** (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?]
*** (John 5:39-40) You search the Scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life. And they are the ones witnessing of Me [Jesus],
(John 5:40) and you will ‘Not’ come to Me [Jesus]; that you might have life.

Do You love His Holy Word, the Bible…? IF You truly DO, then are You… DAILY: “Reading & Studying & Obeying”… what is written therein…? Do You meet with Him… the “Living Holy Word [Psalms 138:2]”… each & every morning? Someone I asked that to answered: “I am ‘NOT’ a Morning Person!” Funny, I replied, “Are You a ‘Morning Person’… when You are on ‘Vacation’ or ‘Not’…?” God’s covenant people Israel, had to get the “Manna”, before the sun arose and it Evaporated! Do You suppose ANY of those million + persons, who exited Egypt by the Exodus… were morning persons or Not…? Many American Christians will NOT miss their favorite sports program, “The Super Bowl or the World Series!” Or any other Sports or Entertainment, that is available on the TV! But when it comes to anyone asking about their… “Spiritual Practice of Worship”… they become Defensive! … “Why”…?
*** (Revelation 1:3) Blessed is the one who READS and HEARS the Words of this prophecy, and the ones KEEPING the things written in it, for the time is near.
*** (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.
*** (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 [You] be found “FAITHFUL”.
*** (Matthew 13:19) When “Anyone” hears the Word of the kingdom; and does ‘Not’ understand it; then the wicked one [Satan] comes; and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.
*** (Jeremiah 23:29) Is not My Word like a FIRE? Says the LORD Jehovah; and like a Hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? [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.
*** (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.
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.
“Get Understanding! – 101” …Blog.
*** (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,
*** (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.
May I share with you a “SECRET”…? This is HOW one gets… “Understanding!”
*** (Psalms 119:97-to-104) MEM: Oh how I love Your Law! It is my meditation all the day.
(Psa 119:98) Through Your Commandments You make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
(Psa 119:99) I have more understanding than all my teachers; for Your testimonies are my prayer.
(Psa 119:100) I understand more than the old men, because I keep Your Commandments.
(Psa 119:101) I have kept my feet from every evil way, so that I might keep Your Word.
(Psa 119:102) I have Not departed from Your judgments; for You have taught me.
(Psa 119:103) How sweet are Your Words to my taste! More than honey to my mouth!
(Psa 119:104) Through Your Commandments I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
How does one, begin to realize these “TRUTHS”… found throughout His Holy Word…? When You Truly LOVE: His Holy Word… as You “LOVE HIM: Jesus”… the Living Holy Word of God: it becomes ‘more’ than just a mental exercise. The “Pharisees, Sadducees and Lawyers” of Jesus day… “Knew the Scriptures!” But to them it was “ONLY An ACADMIC Practice” –> Devoid of the Love of God! The Love of God, is in our hearts by His Indwelling Holy Spirit! Only Then: can we make the LOVE of His HOLY WORD… “Practical Worship”… instead of just an “Academic Mental Practice!” When one loves “His Holy Word”, then He [the indwelling Holy Spirit ] opens His or Her… “Knowledge & Understanding & Wisdom”… to the True Child of God!

*** (Romans 5:1-to-10) Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Rom 5:2) Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we boast in our hope of sharing God's glory.
(Rom 5:3) Not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces Endurance,
(Rom 5:4) Endurance produces Character, and Character produces Hope.
(Rom 5:5) Now this Hope does Not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, Who has been given to us. [Ephesians 1:13-14]
(Rom 5:6) For at just the right time, while we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
(Rom 5:7) For it is rare for anyone to die for a righteous person, though somebody might be brave enough to die for a good person.
(Rom 5:8) But God demonstrates His love for us by the fact that Christ died for us while we were still sinners.
(Rom 5:9) Now that we have been justified by his blood, how much more will we be saved from wrath through him!
(Rom 5:10) For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, will we be saved by His life!
(Rom 5:11) Not only that, but we also continue to boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have Now received our Reconciliation. [2Corinthains 5:18-to-21]
