Change in Life Style Needed???

There is so much confusion and fear because of untruthfulness and deceit especially in government and churches. This website is to promote my collection of articles and Bible study tools for free downloading and sharing with others.

Are you a true Christian?  If you are, consider the following:

Jude (from the Lockman’s Foundation Amplified Bible)

20   But you, beloved,

      build yourselves up on your most holy faith

     [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher],

      praying in the Holy Spirit;

21       guard {and} keep yourselves in the love of God;

      expect {and} patiently wait for the mercy

      of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)--

      [Who will bring you] unto life eternal.

22       and on some have mercy and compassion who waver {and} doubt.

23     [Strive to] save others, snatching [them] out of [the] fire;

     on others have pity [but] with fear,

           loathing even the garment spotted

                by the flesh {and} polluted by their sensuality."

The Great Commission!!!!!!!

Matthew 18:

16    Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee,

        into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

17     And when they saw Him,

they worshipped Him,

but some doubted.

18    And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying,

         “All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in Earth.

19            Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,

       baptizing them in the name of

            the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; 

20                 Teaching them to observe all things

             whatsoever I have commanded you;

and, lo, I am with you always,

even unto the end of the world. Amen

Do  you  want to be more of a part of the Great Commission?

I  do.

How can we?   By learning how to do what Matthew 18:16-20 says.

Look at the below two specially formatted Scripture passages and think about the importance of careful Bible study and learning.

2 Timothy 3:15-17

15    And that from a child you have known the holy Scriptures,

         which are able to make you wise unto Salvation

          through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16    All Scripture

        is given by inspiration of God, and

        is profitable

        for doctrine,

        for reproof,

        for correction,

        for instruction in righteousness:

17                   that the man (and woman) of God may be perfect,

             thoroughly furnished

                   to all good works.

Ephesians 4:1-16

 1    As a prisoner for the Lord, then,

            I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

 2              Be completely humble and gentle;

   be patient, bearing with one another in love.

 3              Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit

          through the bond of peace.

 4         There is one body and one Spirit--

                  just as you were called to one hope when you were called--

 5                    one Lord, one faith, one baptism;

 6                    one God and Father of all,

               Who is over all and through all and in all.

 7          But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.

 8               This is why it says: “When He ascended on high,

         He led captivity captive and gave gifts to men.”

 9                           (What does "He ascended" mean except that

                        He also descended to the lower, earthly regions?

10                    He Who descended is the very One

 Who ascended higher than all the heavens,

 in order to fill the whole universe.)

11           It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets,

            some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,

12                      for the equipping of the saints

         for the work of the ministry

         for the edifying of the body of Christ

13                                until we all reach unity

    in the faith

    and in the knowledge of the Son of God

       and become mature,

    attaining to the whole measure

        of the fullness of Christ.

14          Then we will no longer be infants,

             tossed back and forth by the waves,

                  and blown here and there

                 by every wind of teaching

                 and by the cunning and craftiness of men

               in their deceitful scheming.

15              Instead, speaking the truth in love,

            we will in all things grow up into Him Who is the Head, that is, Christ.

16                      From Him the whole body, joined and held together

          by every supporting ligament,

         grows and builds itself up in love,

        as each part does its work.

Note: The result should be unity in God’s unselfish and forever agapè love!!!

So what is this agapè love and what should be the top priorities of Christians?

1 Corinthians 13:1-8

1     If I speak with the tongues of people and of angels,

     but I do not have love,

  I have become [as] brass sounding or a cymbal tinkling.

2     And if I am having [the gift of] prophecy

      and know all secrets and all knowledge,

and if I am having all faith so as to be removing mountains,

and have not love,

I am nothing.

3     And if I dole out all my possessions,

      and if I hand over my body so that I am burned,

    but am not having love,

 I am not at all benefited.

4     Love waits patiently; it acts kindly.

Love does not envy [or, is not jealous];

love does not boast;

     it does not become haughty.

5     It does not behave disgracefully;

it does not seek its own [things];

it is not provoked [or, irritated];

it does not keep a record of evil.

6     It does not rejoice over unrighteousness,

     but it rejoices with the truth.

7     It puts up with all [things],

     believes all,

     hopes [or, confidently expects] all,

     endures all.

8     Love never fails.

      But if [there be] prophecies, they will become useless;

      if tongues, they will cease by themselves;

      if knowledge, it will become useless.

Philippians 2:1-11 & 3:7-16

 1    If there be therefore any consolation in Christ,

     if any comfort of love,

     if any fellowship of the Spirit,

     if any bowels and mercies,

 2             fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,

      having the same love,

           being of one accord, of one mind.

 3         Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory;

  but in lowliness of mind

 4         let each esteem other better than themselves.

  Look not every man on his own things,

 but every man also on the things of others.

 5         Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

 6               Who, being in the form of God,

  thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

 7               But made Himself of no reputation,

  and took upon Him the form of a servant,

  and was made in the likeness of men:

 8              And being found in fashion as a man,

  He humbled Himself,

        and became obedient unto death,

       even the death of the cross.

 9              Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him,

  and given Him a name which is above every name,

10                          that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

     of things in Heaven,

     and things in Earth,

     and things under the earth;

11                    and that every tongue should confess

       that Jesus Christ is Lord,

     to the glory of God the Father.

 7    But what things were gain to me,

            those I counted loss for Christ.

 8               Yes doubtless, and I count all things but loss

        for the excellency

      of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:

           for Whom I have suffered the loss of all things,

                              and do count them but dung,

                    that I may win Christ,

  9                                           and be found in Him,

                              not having mine own righteousness,

                           which is of the Law,

                         but that which is through the faith of Christ,

                              the righteousness which is of God by faith:

10                                                     that I may know Him,

                                   and the power of His resurrection,

                            and the fellowship of His sufferings,

                                  being made conformable unto His death;

11    If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

12        Not as though I had already attained,

           either were already perfect:

    but I follow after,

   if that I may apprehend that for

       which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

13    Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:

      but this one thing I do,

    forgetting those things which are behind,

    and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14                    I press toward the mark

for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15    Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded:

      and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded,

    God shall reveal even this unto you.

16    Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained,

       let us walk by the same rule,

       let us mind the same thing.

Now are you “part of the solution” for humankind

“or are you part of the problem”?

Consider learning to be more part of the Great Commission more than just doing friendship evangelism.  I have some helpful information about how to do such using the Internet.  IDs can even be important for such ministry; mine started on Praize Messenger because my ID was "Biblelover8".  My current IDs for e-mail accounts are "Bible lover Bill", "for sharing truth", "for trusting God", and "for Jude 20-23".

To God be the glory for any good that you see in this site. I have to rely on the Holy Spirit for guidance and teaching. Yahoo GeoCities free accounts are being deleted soon and I do now recommend this website provider. It is quite easy to use because there are many templates to use for the 12 allowed free pages. But spaces are not recognized, so I had to use the Indent Right tool in order to show my logically indented formatting of Scripture. I will try to answer any questions that you may have and hope to write a list of advice statements later.
