First I rightfully still do not endorse any Christians adds, anyone, any person, any organization, any Church  now trying to make any money from  the gospel, or begging, asking for money or even  any of the adds here.  I also do not endorse any of  Bibles, books, tapes listed here for sale too. Jesus said as we have freely received so we are freely to give. Hirelings in their greed and visible lack of faith don't do that. I do believe we should have the faith for God to supply what anyone needs  freely to anyone who needs it



What does God's grace not overlook?
 
Many years ago, about 20, I heard a pastor's wife in tears crying tell us all that no one had priorly warned her that we all shall reap the sins that we sow here on earth if we do not repent of them, and she next started to tell how she and her husband had started here on earth to to reap the bad things they sowed... that has really affected my ministry to others, warning people to repent too.
 
We can not also forget that Saul was saved by the prayers of the same saints he persecuted, but Saul later named Apostle Paul was  also appointed to suffer for his past crimes against Christians and suffer he did also! (Acts 9:16 KJV)  For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake. God's Grace does not overlook personal earthly negative consequences for past unrepentant sins now too. King David found that out too as well as King Saul. and many  many others.
 
One having mentally the right doctrines, the right theology is still not enough.
 
2 Chronicles 20:1  It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. 2  Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi. 3  And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. 4  And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD. 5  And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court, 6  And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee? 7  Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever? 8  And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying, 9  If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help. 10  And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not; 11  Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit. 12  O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee. 13  And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children. 14  Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation; 15  And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's. 16  To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. 17  Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you. 18  And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD. 19  And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high. 20  And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. 21  And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.  22  And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. 23  For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.  24  And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped. 25  And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much. 26  And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day. 27  Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the LORD had made them to rejoice over their enemies. 28  And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the LORD. 29  And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel. 30  So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about. 31  And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi. 32  And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and departed not from it, doing that which was right in the sight of the LORD. 33  Howbeit the high places were not taken away: for as yet the people had not prepared their hearts unto the God of their fathers. 34  Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Jehu the son of Hanani, who is mentioned in the book of the kings of Israel.
 
and look at this in spite of having the right theology on intercessory prayer
 
35  And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly:
 
The root problem lies in that we are still  personally not willing to make Jesus Lord of all areas of our life and to do all he demands of us personally ..
 
Sadly one of the most serious tragedies I encountered in life is the person(s)who are troubled by the unknown, or the guilt, the past, the future, and they cannot sleep, they are deeply  troubled, fully awake in the middle of the night and they do not know how to deal with all of this.. Alcohol, pills, TV really do not help here as well. Their basic problem is that they really have not learned to pray, to turn all things over unto God for his action.
 
We also still do need discernment of our feelings of guilts, stress now as well.. Is it truly God or rather false men? the devil?
 
" In the middle of the night, you still awaken, totally disoriented and not fully aware of where you are, you know only that you deeply hurt.  You hurt so deeply that there is no possible way to get peace, to be comfortable and fall back to sleep and  for this hurt you cannot  grope your way to the medicine cabinet and merely take a pill so that in  an hour or so, the pill can begin its work and that you sink into sleep again. You know that when you wake up  these pains will still be there.  Your sorrows and related  pains bother you,  you're still in the clutches of these pain and you know there is  no way you can get rid of them on your own. You want to call someone else but you remember what has often happened to you instead the last time... instead of support they even further wrongfully bashed you.. yes you the one that hurting already too... and you wonder why the world is so unfair now .. and more pains, hurts resurface, and so thus begins the vicious circle.. it is the same... a continual negative disruption in your life.  It wears you down, makes you tired, even unpleasant to be around and/or makes you a walking pity party, it all helps to causes even a depression to sink in, and makes you want to do just about anything to get away from it but you can't.. is there a way out.. and who is the person really behind all this.. is it really God"  No, sadly the Devil rather enjoys causing pain to us all.. even using other people to do it as well
 
(Psa 127:2 KJV)  "It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep."
 
But can you really trust the Bible and God's words.. you hear so many contradicting voices, opinions now these days too.. so who do you trust? who do you believe?  One of my past bad counselor said to me that one cannot just take one verse out of the Bible, one has to take the whole Bible fully into consideration, he thus also implied falsely that one needs to have a Bible degree to be able to comprehend, to take even God's promises  at face value to help us, to thus get any of God's help. He also told me that  one has to buy all of these varioys tapes,  books etc. too. So still who do you really trust God or man 's words now?
 
Not that in the case of the Old Testament person of Job  God himself allows Job to be wrongfully condemned, accused, but God did not approve of the accusers, justify them, he rather was clearly displeased with them and demanded that they repent..  Being falsely accused happen now to many of us too and Job  is not the only one person  in  life who does even faces false accusations even from the brethren so called.. and the devil.
 
(Jer 17:5 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
 
So who are you going to listen to God or mere man.. Thank God he next clearly speaks to you and says that when you re sick you do not have to be solely a doctor to get well, nor do you do have to know about, take  every  medicine or pill in the drugstore to get well. Normally you have to take just one prescription, the one prescribed specifically for you and your pain by the great Doctor, Jesus,  and not  by man himself now too...
 
(Psa 13:3 KJV)  Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; 4  Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.5  But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
 
"Matthew 11: 28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
 
(Lam 3:31 KJV)  For the Lord will not cast off for ever: 32  But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. 33  For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. 34  To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth,  35  To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High, 36  To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not. 37  Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? 38  Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?  39  Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? 40  Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. 41  Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens. 42  We have transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned. 43  Thou hast covered with anger, and persecuted us: thou hast slain, thou hast not pitied. 44  Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through. 45  Thou hast made us as the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the people. 46  All our enemies have opened their mouths against us. 47  Fear and a snare is come upon us, desolation and destruction. 48  Mine eye runneth down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people. 49  Mine eye trickleth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission, 50  Till the LORD look down, and behold from heaven. 51  Mine eye affecteth mine heart because of all the daughters of my city. 52  Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause. 53  They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me. 54  Waters flowed over mine head; then I said, I am cut off. 55  I called upon thy name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon. 56  Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my breathing, at my cry. 57  Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not. 58  O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast redeemed my life. 59  O LORD, thou hast seen my wrong: judge thou my cause. 60  Thou hast seen all their vengeance and all their imaginations against me.  61  Thou hast heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me;  62  The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day. 63  Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their music. 64  Render unto them a recompense, O LORD, according to the work of their hands. 65  Give them sorrow of heart, thy curse unto them. 66  Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.
 
So thus by exercising your faith in God's revealed word, you pray and you do give all of yours problems, pains, sorrows, false enemies over unto God, trusting he can and will look after it all  and you next false asleep peacefully..
 
(1 Pet 5:7 KJV)  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11  To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
 
and not rather casting your care on  mere man now as well.
 
(Gen 1:2 KJV)  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
 
(Deu 32:28 KJV)  For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
 
(Psa 119:126 KJV)  It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
 
(Prov 7:7 KJV)  And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
 
(Prov 10:13 KJV)  In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
 
(Prov 12:11 KJV)  He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.
 
(Prov 24:30 KJV)  I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;
 
(Isa 55:11 KJV)  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
 
(Jer 19:7 KJV)  And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcases will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.
 
(Rom 3:31 KJV)  Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.  (Rom 4:14 KJV)  For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:
 
     Matthew 13:18  Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 19  When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. 20  But he that received the seed into stoney places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21  Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22  He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23  But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
 
Still  we as earthly human beings do tend too often to neglect the Bible passages that are rather unfavorable to us even such as :
 
(Mark 7:7 KJV)  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8  For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
 
We also tend also to falsely follow after the false teachings, opinions of men, even those persons of whom Jesus said
 
(Mat 23:15 KJV)  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
 
And we do too often look to man for Help firstly and not God? 
 
(Jer 17:5 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
 
We also tend to covet even after the proud persons, and covet other men's and women's wealth, riches, prosperity.
 
(Psa 40:4 KJV)  Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
 
(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
 
(Isa 66:2 KJV)  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
 
 We also tend to walk after our  own logic and not God's
 
(Prov 14:12 KJV)  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
 
(Psa 34:18 KJV)  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
 
(Isa 57:15 KJV)  For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
 
(Isa 55:9 KJV)  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
 
Rather we are to follow solely after Jesus
 
(John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
 
(John 10:4 KJV)  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
 
We need to remind ourselves daily that our help is in the Lord now who created the heavens and the earth and not in man.
 
"Abide with me: fast falls the eventide:  Henry F. Lyte, 1793-1847
 
Abide with me,
Fast falls the eventide.
The darkness deepens;
Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail
And comforts flee,
Help of the helpless,
Oh, abide with me.
2. I need thy presence
Every passing hour;
What but thy grace
Can foil the tempter's pow'r?
Who like thyself
My guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine
Oh, abide with me.
 
3. Swift to it's close
Ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim,
It's glories pass away;
Change and decay
In all around I see;
O thou who changest not,
Abide with me
 
4. Not a brief glance I beg,
A passing word,
But as Thou dwell'st
With Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending,
Patient, free.
Come not to sojourn,
But abide with me.
 
5. Come not in terror,
As the King of kings,
But kind and good,
With healing in Thy wings;
Tears for all woes,
A heart for every plea.
Come, Friend of sinners,
Thus abide with me.
6. Thou on my head
In every youth didst smile,
And though rebellious
And perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me,
Oft as I left Thee.
On to the close,
O Lord, abide with me.
 
7. I fear no foe,
With thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight,
And there are no bitterness.
Where is death's sting?
Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still,
If thou abide with me!
 
8. Hold thou thy cross
Before my closing eyes,
Shine through the gloom,
And point me to the skies;
Heaven's morning breaks,
And earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death,
O Lord, abide with me. "
 
Psalms 25  Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. 26  My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. 27  For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. 28  But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
 
  There are many types of effective prayers but they have to be balanced with praising God too... and living a God based life too.
 
I had prayed for one item for many years and in desperation I next wrongfully said to God whether God now even  would really  next still do it  and this is the  verse is what he God immediately had given me.
 
 (Jer 32:27 KJV)  Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? (James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
 
(2 Chr 20:6 KJV)  And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?
 
(Isa 44:8 KJV)  Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
 
(Heb 11:8 KJV)  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. 9  By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles ( tents) with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10    For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
 
    We are to also to walk walk by faith and to walk righteously before God firstly ourselves otherwise God will not even hear our prayers for anyone else. We also are to speak the truth in love to others as well, and we are even to judge them if they have done wrong even  if they are part of the body of Christ and we are to ask them to repent now as well? and where is the problem next now with doing all of this? where?
      
And we to often expect falsely a very  easy life without persecutions which God has not promised to us as well.
 
Mark 10 29  And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, 30  But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. 31  But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
 
for
 
 (Eccl 7:20 KJV)  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
 
Micah 7:2  The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. 3  That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up. 4  The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity. 5  Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. 6  For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house. 7  Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. 8  Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. 9  I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness. 10  Then she that is mine enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her which said unto me, Where is the LORD thy God? mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.
 
(Luke 9:62 KJV)  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
 
(Phil 3:13 KJV)  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,
 
(Job 19:3 KJV)  "These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.: even    (Job 19:14 KJV)  "My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me."(Job 19:18 KJV)  "Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me."(Job 19:19 KJV)  "All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me."(Job 19:22 KJV)  "Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?"
 
Our justification , defence is of God and not mere men as well
 
Psalms 7:10  My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. 11  God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. 12  If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. 13  He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. 14  Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. 15  He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. 16  His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

    Like Job I was still often personally surprised when even the supposedly older, mature Christians persons in the faith had falsely condemned me, judged me, and not in love or in truth.
 
I aslo do remember when on four separate occasion four prominent individual Church elders even had falsely judged me but next  all four in reality next  reaped the very same events in their own lives shortly consequences of that which they had judge me wrongfully as being responsible for..
 
One church elder once had clearly implied it was my fault that I had lost my job, my unemployment, and ironically very shortly after that he was too embarrassed to even talk to me on the he street when he came my way, cause I next had to rather find from others in the church  that he himself had been forced  into a very early retirement by his employer, and he was now unemployed and was having a very difficult time to find a job now as well.
 
(John 7:24 KJV)  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
 
Luke 6:37  Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: 38  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. 39  And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? 40  The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. 41  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 42  Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye. 43  For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 44  For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. 46  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like: 48  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
 
If we walk with God, God's end results for us who are faithful to Him are rather a blessing. He gives us peace so we can sleep even during any troublesome times.(Psa 4:8 KJV)  I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
 
(James 5:11 KJV)  Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
 
Job 42:1  Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 2  I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. 3  Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. 4  Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 5  I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. 6  Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. 7  And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath. 8  Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job. 9  So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the LORD commanded them: the LORD also accepted Job. 10  And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11  Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold. 12  So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. 13  He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14  And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. 15  And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. 16  After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations. 17  So Job died, being old and full of days.
 
(Eccl 7:21 KJV)  Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee: 22 For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.
 
Romans 12: 16  Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17   recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18  If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20  Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
 
(Luke 10:25 KJV)  And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26  He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? 27 and  he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. 28  And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. 29  But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30  And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31  And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32  And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34  And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35  And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36  Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37  And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
 
Psalms 103: 11  For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. 12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. 13  Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. 14  For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. 15  As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. 16  For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. 17  But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; 18  To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. 19  The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all. 20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. 21  Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. 22  Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
 
(Eccl 4:4 KJV)  Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
 
The Son of God had appeared for this purpose that He might destroy the works of the devil  in our personal lives!

(1 John 3:7, ). 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 11  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12  Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. 13  Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 14  We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15  Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16  Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17  But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18  My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
 
 (1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

(John 19:37 KJV)  And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
 
Still in real life any person can see the very same Christ but next even still see him from a different perspective and even react differently towards him also, one accepting His love an forgiveness and the other one rejecting it.
 
(Luke 23:32 KJV)  And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.33  And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. 34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. 35  And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. 36  And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, 37  And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. 38  And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 39  And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40  But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41  And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42  And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 44  And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45  And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46  And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
 
To avoid unnecessary guilt, truly one of the best way to get rid of a personally  bad, sinful problem is firstly to personally admit it to God and to ask for God's help to change.
 
    Galations 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2  Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 3  For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4  But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5  For every man shall bear his own burden. 6  Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
 
Yet in reality and sadly some people even when rebuked, warned even of their real personal negative consequences next now will still not accept God's love and forgiveness like one of the two thieves on the cross did, like  even Judas did too, and many others daily do now as well, they will try rather to discredit Him, mock, ridicule, bash him and his followers instead too.
 
(John 9:39 KJV)  And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. 40  And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
 
Here is the reality in their hearts, most unrepentant persons do know they are in the grip of a powerful master, the devil, and the specific sins involved,  and they  know also that they are are personally helpless to combat the devil and their sins and they  really do feel this self helplessness  too but they do not seek help and why is that?  Their personally recognized  clear inability to combat, control their sinful ways in contrasting next by their false self defence  which ironically often leads to their own false denial  that their own real  unrepentant sins even exists and  this occurs not only on the part of the sinner, but often on the part of those by those who care for them the most, their family, spouses, friends.  Who, when confronted with their real sins"problem" they are apt to deny it altogether or make false excuses for his or her sinful  behavior. While they next even vigorously try deny their problem to others, their very own inappropriate further personal actions still indicate their own awareness of the reality of their sins. While Clergy,  family and friends can be valuable resources for the  unrepentant sinner. Yet, in some cases, these people willingly or unwittingly assist this unrepentant sinner by covering up for him/her and denying that he/her must correct his/her own mistakes.
 
(Jer 23:22 KJV)  But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
 
When people make excuses for the unrepentant sinner, the sinner also  is being helped to being conditioned into believing that they are not really sinners who need to change, repent and that there will always be a "protector" who will come to his or her rescue. These same persons thus are rather a false hindrance to the unrepentant persons come to the truth, getting the forgiveness, help they need as well to change their wicked,bad ways.

As the sinful ways continue, the need to deny their inability to change  becomes ironically even greater, and they will openly manifest pride, clear lack of humility, the visible lack of humbleness too, and they may even openly  boast of their past victories in the  Lord,  their personal accomplishment, religious experiences and take false credit, even pride for it.. They thus tend  also  to falsely  to acknowledge that personally anyone else had previously  helped them to make their positive  changes, accomplishment  as well, even by the prayers, preaching, demonstrations of  love and concern for them. They unrepentant persons tend to still   deny that their sinful behavior now is causing  the very visible trouble for others too. 
 
Note this that the real problem is rather not that the unrepentant person is  really not aware of the truth  about their sins and themselves, for their  sense of guilt and remorse often becomes intolerable and their helplessness in dealing  with the unrepentant sins is a real known  personal embarrassing to them, but the problem lays in that they do listen to the devil's lies that they are normal, an do not need to personal repent, make any effort to change. As a result they tend to next even wander further in the wilderness of confusion while their negative lifestyle is clearly being made known next to many others.
 
In fact in most cases only severe negative personal consequences will make these persons admit, see their further  need to confess their sins and desire to change, and the longer that they have been in this self denial of their sinful ways  the more severer do have to be the negative consequences upon them as well in order for them to even  consider making any personal positive acts towards a change of their sinful ways, the real repentance of it, and thus next getting God's help now too..
 
God is not at all now to be blamed for their own sinful ways, for they have clearly on their own now, next made their own bad  choices and they will sleep in the bed they had  made too.
 
(Luke 16:13 KJV)  No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
 
John 12: 35  Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. 36  While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. 37  But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: 38  That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39  Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, 40  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. 41  These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him. 42  Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: 43  For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. 44  Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. 45  And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. 46  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. 47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
 
Their own visible lack of love, compassion towards others is one the the most visible indications of their own still actual unrepentance and why is that? When they do not repent they are no longer Holy spirit filled, led and thus they do not manifest the fruits of the holy Spirt.
 
I John 2:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 2:1  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3  And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6  He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 7  Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8  Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 9  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. 11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
 
Such unrepentant person may still be brought to repentance by prayer but they still will have to admit in true humility their sinful state before they can be helped.
 
(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17  Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20  Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
 
Pray that God will give them now  the spirit of grace to repent instead of trying falsey to condemn you and God..
 
(Zec 12:10 KJV)  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. 12  In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart; 13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;
 
OTHERWISE
 
(Ezek 33:23 KJV)  Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,24  Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance. 25  Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye possess the land? 26  Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land? 27  Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence. 28  For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through. 29  Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed. 30  Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD. 31  And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. 32  And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. 33  And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them
 
(Luke 16:31 KJV)  And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
 
(John 15:20 KJV)  Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
 
(Mat 10:25 KJV)  It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? 26  Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 27  What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
 
(Dan 12:3 KJV)  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
 
   While we may feel unrighteous condemnations, some of us are also being rightfully condemned..  "Now what's the big deal? Everybody has at least one vice. Why do some falsely  give me such a hard time over it?""I don't understand why I still do it. Every so often I get a big urge, I fall into the temptation to do it, and there go all my good intentions." "Maybe I'm the sort of person who just needs to be addicted to some vice. Anyway it must be God's will for me  I've have tried to stop before, and it's too hard, I can't do it? "Quitting successfully amounts to having enough will power to do it  and I really don't, so why kid myself? and what is so real bad about the way I personally live?" "Do I next have to go to those confessions of sins, acknowledging of the higher power over me  meetings too even for the rest of my life? that kinda life is not for me!" Yes it is...
 
(Prov 18:24 KJV)  A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
 
and you know by now there are good friends and bad ones too.
 
(Prov 19:1 KJV)  Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
 
Too many persons are unwilling to admit, renounce their sins, addictions and that is why they are still so really personally troubled and cannot sleep well too.
 
     "An addiction is an activity or substance we repeatedly  crave to experience, and for which we are willing if necessary to pay a price (or negative consequence). In recent years researchers have considered as examples of addiction both substance addictions (alcohol, cigarettes, food,  drugs, etc.) and activity addictions (lying, gambling, impulsive or abusive sexual activity, pornography, abusing others, gossip, slander, tax evasions, stealing, shoplifting, overspending, etc.). To some the supposedly  relatively minor addictions, such as watching too much television, reading the wrong book and magazines, eating a certain kind of costly foods, candy, or lying in bed  mornings, are often not even considered serious addictions, because the price paid for indulging them is supposedly not high so they do continues an addictive behavior long after it may have been clear that the substantial price being paid was not worth the actual benefit.  An addiction is an example of a habit. Negative sinful addictions range from those with supposedly very minor negative consequences, to those as serious as the cocaine addict  with much in the area in between. Predisposing factors are what enable an individual to experience a certain behavior as pleasurable, and include biological predisposition (enjoying some physical effects of the behavior, being insensitive to others), encouragement from others, acceptance of the behavior by the individual and others, low self esteem, craving for excitement/boredom,  high life stress (typically expressed as a specific emotional issue, such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, etc.), and the availability of the substance or activity.  For instance, someone addicted to ocean swimming may enjoy the feeling of being "massaged" by water as he swims in it, not mind the coldness of the water very much, have gotten encouragement from his wife (she thinks it's "manly"), accept the activity as part of a healthy lifestyle (as his friends and family do), have a need to prove himself to others (or to feel better about himself by swimming), like the excitement/tension of knowing he could drown, enjoy the respite from the very high anxiety of his sales job, and live near the beach. The presence of all of these predisposing factors is not necessary for addictive behavior to develop.It takes more than just curiosity to establish an addiction.  Like other habits, addictive behaviors are personally learned behaviors that we acquire through trial and error (e.g., we happen to gamble for the first time, having known little about it, and experience it as exhilarating and captivating), or through observing others (e.g., our parents had cocktails each evening before dinner to relax). If we have ongoing experience with the substance or activity, and if (and only if) we enjoy at least some aspect of that experience, an urge or craving for it gradually emerges after repeated experience. The urge is a way of saying to ourselves: "I know this is going to be good; I will enjoy this." and this is the devil's lies to entrap us or them further into this sin habit too. Because of the uniqueness of each individual, what is pleasurable for one person may not be for another."
 
"It is possible to describe phases in a negative addiction:
 
1) Experimentation: Urges arise out of curiosity
 
2) Expected enjoyment: Urges arise out of fond memories  of past enjoyment
 
3) Doing it to cope: Urges arise primarily in response to stress
 
4) Doing it to survive: Urges are frequent (hourly, doing it as a way of life daily); or urges may be prevented more than they are experienced. Specific stressors are no longer needed as triggers for urges, because the addiction is woven into many or most aspects of life. The addiction helps the addict maintain a false sense of stability, even  pride,  and supposed normality."
 
A question we all need to face here on the negative addictions "Is my enjoyment of this substance or activity causing me enough problems for me and others  that I should want  to consider cutting back or stopping? Is this behavior preventing me from enjoying even better and higher good things? like a more positive relationship with God.
 
 Never the  less too many persons, Christians included now,  these days are living falsely by their having good feelings and not by God and his Words to them too.
 
Truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). And then again He said, "Truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven."
 
      Further more my having been raised in the fundamental evangelical churches I found that their  teachings, false denials  of the visible turning away from the faith, and the visible unrepentance of many persons amongst them  was the cause of their guit, unrests....  but their own emphasis tended in defence mainly  to be that once saved is always saved seems also  to give many a false licence to sin and to continue to sin in these same Churches.
 
Many of them wronfully too they also clearly maintained that a Christian cannot be possessed by the devil and yet it also seems in reality still they can be..
 
Adding to the problem of stress, guilt, is the reality even in the  country of US where almost half of the adults claim to be "born again" it is clearly obvious that there is great misunderstanding  about the meaning of true repentance and regeneration. This mis-understanding is widespread even within the evangelical church. The concept has been so weakened and diluted of its biblical meaning that too many persons without any concrete evidence of lasting spiritual change are still routinely regarded as being valid "born again Christians." Whereas in fact the new birth (or regeneration from above,)should manifest itself  is a radical change of the core disposition and nature of a person that fundamentally transforms both their attitudes towards God, others and even their own personally lifestyle and yet it too often is not visible occurring   and why is that?The unbroken sinfulness and open rebellion of professing Christians to God and his words is commonly explained by the fact that they have not yet "surrendered" to Christ or is it much more than that now too? They are often given false assurance of their salvations as well so they  believe, and are encouraged by others to believe, that they are saved, when in fact their continual disobedient lifestyle should warrant no such assurance. How can they maintain to even be Christians when over 85 percent of them daily do not read the Bible nor even pray daily to God for themselves or others too? Nor do they manifested evidences of being filled with the Holy spirit or having the fruit of the Holy Spirit
 
(1 John 2:4, 5).4  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6  He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 7  Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8  Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 9  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
10  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. 11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
 
WHAT DOES  IT TRULY MEAN TO BE BORN FROM ABOVE AND SHOULD IT NOT BE EVIDENT IN ONE'S PERSONAL LIFE NOW AS WELL AND NOT JUST IN MERE WORDS NOW TOO?
 
Does true regeneration simply impart divine life as an added capacity alongside the old nature, which may or may not be effected by any  radical changes? NO! Never!True personal regeneration by imparting the saving life of Christ actually breaks and dethrones the  general controlling power of sin in one's life even so that the personal  believer's basic life-direction is now away from self and sin and towards God, loving others and is even  and towards doing good works,  striving after holiness. Christ's genuine  regeneration imparts divine life that fundamentally reworks and recreates a person's core nature so that a new disposition and behavior inevitably follows! So we obviously do have a lot of false, pretentious converts then even in the he churches of today.
 
Clearly the definition of what it really  means to be born again, that is accepting Jesus Christ as lord as their life has to be re explained, re defined now still to many person in the evangelical churches now too.
 
"By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious; anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God (i.e., born of God) nor the one who does not love his brother" (1 John 3:10). "Little children, let no one deceive you: the one who practices righteousness is righteous (through the new birth) just as He is righteous: The one who practices sin is of the devil (unregenerate)" (1 John 3:7). John recognizes that Christians can and do sin (1 John 1:8-10) but they do next  repent of it and do not do it continually now as well.
 
      I have met many stressed out persons in Churches, elders included.. As I next  got much  older I too also noticed an another alarming trend in amongst too many individuals even in many churches,  even the visible deliberate false unrepentance of many leaders, persons, even of the older Christians, towards their own personal sins. There are professing Christians who manifest no love for Christ's commands, sin regularly, even scandalously, without any true remorse as well.. So it should not be surprising they are so troubled, stressed out, guilt ridden. The simple solution of admitting their guilt is hindered also by the existence f their false pride..
 
       Here also one thing next that really shocked me was the clear, visible degeneration of these unrepentant  persons personal negative behavioral  characteristic which corresponded to that of an "alcoholic" person  and I next  could not fully understand the correlation. Truly their personal  behaviors were, are very very similar! There seems to be also to be only one basic difference between them, one tends to maintain they are a Christian and/or one consumes alcohol and the other one generally does not. Both seem to filled with the wrong spirit as well or have no use for the genuine Holy Spirit.  And yet in the minds of many others too  this does not arouse even the slightest suspicion that they both may still  be really even unregenerated. "and by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says I know Him and does not keep His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in Him" (1 John 2:3, 4).
 
Because of the radical nature of the new birth any and all who are born again by God from above  are inevitably characterized by life transforming change. Alcoholics addicts, drug users  now included.. Of course, the evidences of the new birth are not perfect nor the same in every case. Christians are continually growing and maturing at different rates. Moreover, because of disobedience and the deceptions of Satan, there are periods of varying lengths in which the flesh and indwelling sin gains the upper hand. The fact of the matter, however, is that all believers are marked by specific positive personal changes and characteristics. Without them the salvation of a person may be questioned. An intellectual or even right doctrinal understanding of the gospel is not enough. A profession of trusting in Christ alone may be rooted in a deceived heart that intellectualizes the gospel with a non-saving faith
 
(James 2:14-22).14  What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15  If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16  And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. 19  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21  Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22  Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24  Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25  Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
 
The alcoholic he or she tends to blame someone else, something else for their sins, problem and they deny also  their personal accountability even for their personal sin, their guilt and he/she denies clearly too that they have a problem. They do lie to themselves and to others. They will even steal to support their sinful behavior.
 
Alcoholism is also socially looked at as a family problem meaning that when the alcoholism effects only one person(or more) in a family it effects every  member of the family in some negative way. That is also true of un unrepentant person.
 
I myself once witnessed a professional counselor, an immoral ungoldy physiologist still,   give another  professing Christian a behavioral development  analysis test and the Christian persons results clearly corresponded to a drunken derelict to my own real surprise. How could an abstaining  Christian be now so similar in behavioral characteristic  to an alcoholic.? The answer lies int the fact that Both persons are under the  power of the same Satan and his lies to them and both did not repent of their specific personals wrong doings. Both they are rather addicted to their developed sinful habits, are prisoners of Satan now, are lead by his will and not by God's will.
 
 All person must realize that the above are are two sides of the same coin, and with unrepentant  there is  one  the urge or craving to engage in the addictive behavior, and the satisfaction that is felt  when the urge is acted upon. The urge is a state of tension and anticipation that is experienced as a desire for the substance or activity. The urge is also experienced as uncomfortable, perhaps intensely so, especially if it lasts long enough. Because we experience relief when the urge is acted upon, there is an increased likelihood that we will act on the urge again. And Satan is the one who calls these urges now as well.
 
(Luke 6:45 KJV)  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
 
(Rom 12:9 KJV)   Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
 
(3 John 1:11 KJV)  Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
 
"Nine percent of adults in the U.S. are classified as either alcoholics or alcohol abusers." and how many unrepentant believers are also controlled the same way by Satan now too? Not suprsingly also the Children of alcoholic parents have a greater risk of early and accelerated alcohol use, and other behavior problems, than do children whose parents are not alcoholic, as well as those of the unrepentant persons...
 
Many persons would also falsely that there are any present negative personal consequences for the unrepentant persons  whereas in fact we tend to see their visibly their personal moral, spiritual  degeneration still.
 
(Rev 18:14 KJV)  And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
 
Psalms 106: 9  He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness. 10  And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 11  And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left. 12  Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. 13  They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: 14  But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 15  And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul. 16  They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD. 17  The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. 18  And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. 19  They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. 20  Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.  21  They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt; 22  Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea. 23  Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them. 24  Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word: 25  But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD. 26  Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness: 27  To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.
 
Worst of all while we try to cope with the consequences of knowing the too  familiar alcoholic  or unrepentant person , we walk around with a feeling of responsibility for our their problem, even blaming ourselves for their condition.
 
Or do we only care about this issue also when it affects us personally..
 
(1 Tim 5:20 KJV)  Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 21  I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. 22  Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.
 
Personal Unrepentance is still the key cause of one's personal addictive behavior, bad  habit endurance, problematic sinful habitual behavior. Many people grappling with their sinful addictive behavior are not aware of the price they will next pay of their still personally unrepentant sis, acts nor of the the price they make others around them also to pay for it too.
 
What is now also is really needed in the Churches now is the  establishing of real, valid Biblical educational programs designed to help all people to distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable personal Christian behavior, acts, even toward others and to also to warn them personally of God's real negative corresponding consequences..  and even to rightfully now discipline them  as well. Public exposure and exemplary prosecution of the unrepentant serves also as a god deterrent to the rest too. Do also pray for this and for the falsely unrepentant persons still and may they see the harm they are doing to themselves sand others too now.. how they live a bad example too.
 
(John 5:14 KJV)  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. 15 KJV)  The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
 
(Luke 11:24 KJV)  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.25   And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26  Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
 
(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10)  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
 
(Prov 19:1 KJV)  Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
 
Let them know that you still love and respect them, but in real love and in maturity can no longer approve of, or ignore, the bad unrepentant addicted habits they do now have...and what Christ himself has said
 
"Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name cast out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, I never knew you. Depart from me you who practice lawlessness" (Matthew 7:22, 23).
 
In other words real, genuine true regeneration, the root of obedience and holiness, has never taken root in the he first place. Their  own desperate appeal to their past works and their supposed profession of faith in the final analysis means nothing even to Christ. The many similar references even in Paul's epistles where he gives warning to those who practice unrighteousness are examples (Galatians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 6:9). God commands also that "pursue peace with all men and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord" (Hebrews 12:14). In Ephesians 5:5, 6 he also warns us, "For this we know with a certainty that no immoral or impure person or covetous man who is an idolater has an inheritance in the kingdom of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience." People who have an ongoing lifestyle of the sins listed herein have really not been born again. Do not be deceived he says. They are not saved and never have been. Paul and Jesus thus say they do not now, next have a rightful  inheritance into the kingdom of God... and no matter if they may claim they have one  too now.. seeing the kingdom of God from afar is not the same as entering it too.
 
"Apostle John described six prominent features and characteristics of the personal new birth from above. First, the believer practices righteousness. John says, "If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him" (1 John 2:29). Righteousness means to do the right. For the Christian doing the right is doing God's will, particularly as outlined in Scripture. It is doing as Jesus says, "the will of My Father in heaven" (Matthew 7:21). Doing the right is as much an attitude as an activity. It isn't simply a matter of externals such as church attendance, some Bible study or even attending a public worship. The Pharisees excelled at these. It's a matter of the heart. A person who is born again submits to and does the will of God from the heart. These qualities are lacking in many who go through the motions even  in the church today. Next, they do not practice sin (1 John 3:9). They also love God and fellow believers (1 John 4:7). They continue to believe in Christ (1 John 5:4), and the evil one, Satan, does not touch them " "Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God" (1 John 5:1). The present tense indicates that the belief is ongoing and continuous. The new birth cannot be reversed, so faith, as a fruit and mark of the new birth, cannot cease. A person who once believed and then renounced it had a faulty non-saving faith to begin with. (1 John 2:19 KJV)  They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
 
(Prov 26:2 KJV)  As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
 
We all are not just involved in a spiritual warfare but also in a personal warfare...
 
(Psa 101:1 KJV)  A Psalm of David. I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.  2  I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. 3  I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. 4  A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. 5  Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. 6  Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. 7  He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. 8  I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
 
(Mat 18:14 KJV)  Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.15  Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 6  But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17  And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as a heathen man and a publican. 18  Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in  heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
 
(Col 3:9 KJV)  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
 
(1 Cor 5:12 KJV)  For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
 
(1 Cor 6:2 KJV)  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
 
James 5: 16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17  Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20  Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
 
(1 Cor 11:31 KJV)  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
 
(Jer 6:27 KJV)  I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way. 28  They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters. 29  The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away. 30 Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them.
 
(Hosea 11:12 KJV)  Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.
 
Luke 3:3 KJV)  And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; (Mat 3:7 KJV)  But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8  Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: (Mat 9:13 KJV)  for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Acts 20:21 KJV)  Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
(Ezek 3:16 KJV)  And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,17  Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.  18  When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 19  Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 20  Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.  21  Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul
 
(Luke 24:46 KJV)  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:  47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
 
(Acts 17:30 KJV)  And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
 
Generally next the unrepentant, the wicked persons when asked to repent of their wrong doings do or they will  response with lies, slanders even condemntation, false cursings of others.
 
(Jer 25:4 KJV)  4  And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. 5  They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever: 6  And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. 7  Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.
 
Jeremiah 7:2  Stand in the gate of the Lord's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD. 3  Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4  Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these. 5  For if ye thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; 6  If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: 7  Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever. 8  Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. 9  Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; 10  And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations? 11  Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD. 12  But go ye now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel. 13  And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the LORD, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not; 14  Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh. 15  And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, even the whole seed of Ephraim. 16  Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee. 
 
(Psa 25:3 KJV)  Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
 
(Psa 35:7 KJV)  For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
 
(Psa 35:19 KJV)  Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
 
(Psa 69:4 KJV)  They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.

(Psa 109:3 KJV)  They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
 
(Psa 119:78 KJV)  Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.
 
(Psa 119:161 KJV)  SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
 
(Isa 52:4 KJV)  For thus saith the Lord GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.
 
(Lam 3:52 KJV)  Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause.
 
(John 15:25 KJV)  But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
 
Be careful and do not let the unrepentant, wicked persons entice you also do to wrong against the innocent.
 
(Prov 1:11 KJV)  If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
 
(Prov 3:5 KJV)  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8  It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
 
(Prov 3:30 KJV)  Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
 
(Prov 24:28 KJV)  Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips
 
(Mat 5:22 KJV)  But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
 
The unrepentant, wicked personsdo  lie, and they do try seduce others brazenly
 
(Prov 7:10 KJV)  And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtle of heart. 11  (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: 12  Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.) 13  So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, 14  I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows. 15  Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.16  I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. 17  I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 18  Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. 19  For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey: 20  He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. 21  With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. 22  He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; 23  Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. 24  Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. 25  Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. 26  For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. 27  Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
 
(Prov 6:32 KJV)  But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. 33  A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
 
(Heb 13:4 KJV)  Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
 
(Rev 2:18 KJV)  And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;19  I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 20  Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21  And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23  And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

(1 Tim 2:12 KJV)  But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
 
(Dan 8:25 KJV)  And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand
 
(Prov 3:33 KJV)  The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
 
God will not leave the  innocent in the he hands of the unrepentant, wicked persons
 
(Psa 18:47 KJV)  It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me. 48  He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. 49  Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name. 50  Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and showeth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
 
(Heb 10:30 KJV)  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord.
 
(1 Sam 19:5 KJV)  For he did put his life in his hand, and slew the Philistine, and the LORD wrought a great salvation for all Israel: thou sawest it, and didst rejoice: wherefore then wilt thou sin against innocent blood, to slay David without a cause?
 
(Job 2:3 KJV)  And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.
 
(Job 9:17 KJV)  For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.

(Psa 102:1 KJV)  A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the LORD. Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. all 8   Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
 
(Psa 102:17 KJV)  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
 
(Psa 103:1 KJV)  A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.2  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:3  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; 4  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies; 5  Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. 6  The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

Psalms 124:1  A Song of degrees of David. If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say; 2  If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us: 3  Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: 4  Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: 5  Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. 6  Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. 7  Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. 8  Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
 
Psalms 125:1  A Song of degrees. They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. 2  As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever. 3  For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity. 4  Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts. 5  As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

Psalms 37:1  A Psalm of David. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. 3  Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4  Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5  Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 6  And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7  Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. 9  For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. 10  For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. 11  But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 12  The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13  The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming. 14  The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. 15  Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. 16  A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous. 18  The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. 19  They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.20  But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

(Isa 55:11 KJV)  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
 
(Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
 
Psalms 119:37  Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way. 38  Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.

(1 Th 2:13 KJV)  For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
 
(Acts 17:11 KJV)  These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
 
Proverbs 2: 6  For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.   He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. 8  He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. 9  Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. 10  When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; 11  Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: 12  To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; 13  Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; 14  Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; 15  Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: 16  To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; 17  Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.  18  For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

Psalms 37:30  The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. 31  The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. 32  The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. 33  The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged. 34  Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. 35  I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. 36  Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. 37  Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. 38  But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. 39  But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. 40  And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

(1 Cor 9:16 KJV)  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
 
(Jude 1:4 KJV)  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5  I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
 
(Rom 1:21 KJV)  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
 
(Mat 25:1 KJV)  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.2  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
 
(Jer 3:10 KJV)  And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
 
(2 Chr 15:2 KJV)  The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.
 
(Psa 119:2 KJV)  Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
 
Jeremiah 23: 16  "Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. 17  They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. 18  For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it? 19  Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.  20  The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.
 
21  I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. 22  But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.23  Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? 24  Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
 
25  I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. 26  How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; 27  Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
 
28  The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
 
29  Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
 
30  Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. 31  Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. 32  Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
 
33  And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD. 34  And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.  35  Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken? 36  And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.
 
37  Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken? 38  But since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD; 39  Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence: 40  And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten."
 
Colossians 3: 5  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6  For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: 7  In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. 8  But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10  And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11  Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
 
(Gal 6:7 KJV)  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
 
(Jer 25:5 KJV)    Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. 6  For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. 7  And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
 
8  And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt: 9  And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. 10  And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers
 
Jeremiah 15:1  Then said the LORD unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth.2  And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the LORD; Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity.3  And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the LORD: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy.
 
Ezekeiel  14:12  The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, 3  Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:14  Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.15  If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts: 16  Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate. 17  Or if I bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it: 18  Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves. 19  Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast: 20  Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness. 21  For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? 22  Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.

Jeremiah 7: 25  Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: 26  Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers. 27  Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee. 28  But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth. 29  Cut off thine hair, O Jerusalem, and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on high places; for the LORD hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath. 30  For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the LORD: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by my name, to pollute it.

(Luke 16:10 KJV)  He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
 
(1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
 
(1 Pet 5:5 KJV)  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
 
(Mat 5:19 KJV)  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
 
(Jer 6:13 KJV)  For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
 
(Jer 8:10 KJV)  Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
 
(Acts 4:29 KJV)  And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
 
(Eph 3:12 KJV)  In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Any Good salesman knows that if you want a sale you have to ask the customer does he want to buy it? If you want to cause people to experience the life in Christ you have to ask them to repent also. Unfortunately this latter topic is not popular with the flesh for many have not yet crucified the flesh and the lust thereof, they have no yet died with Christ.
 
(Luke 24:46 KJV)  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:  47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
 
(Acts 17:30 KJV)  And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
 
(Acts 8:12 KJV)  But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
 
(Dan 12:3 KJV)  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
 
As you can  read from my messages you can also see that they are mostly Bible verses and yet some persons do still now falsely and strongly seem to object to find God's words being quoted by me as very objectionable in contrast to others that 
 
(Acts 17:11 KJV)  These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
 
Why is that they dislike a study of the scriptures? they cannot refute the conviction of verses I quoted for a start and some lazy  people also would falsely believe now that we can and should show love to others without preaching God's words to them.. thus they wrongfully oppose the preaching of God's words..  for they are led by a wrong Spirit now.
 
Also "how can you preach to someone " some wrote to me.. and they also strongly too opposed to the discussion of God's word too.. that is all very unchristian like  too.. they want to live their own lives, and to do that which is right in their own eyes, mainly to get glory from man as well ( pride still prevails there too)  and not from God now too, they want to be worshipped instead of worshipping God, and ironically they will even blame others for the guilt, condemnations  and not God, themselves, that they still tell as a result too. Their false attempts at bashing me, kicking me out, me God's messenger won't help them any more next too... God is not mocked for what a person sows they will reap next still.
 
Some religious even persons go as far as becoming idolterous and state "who needs the Bible?" "I am already  a Christian", even "I have a husband to teach me ", or  "I go to a good church", "I am part of a prayer group" and thus they wrongfully do they think next  that their good church works, services, associations  will now really save them now too... the devil has them already and they do not realize it too. The Word they reject , the Bible, is Jesus himself and they substituted him  still with very poor, bitter replacements.
 
Jesus preached, the apostles preached repentances to others and they often quoted the Bible,  and so on.. so why do some people falsely pretend that preaching is not valid still? and why are some of the persons  they so afraid of and oppose the preaching of God's words, the Gospel  of repentance now too? why? simply cause it  is God's words,  the only thing  that  brings personal repentance, real conviction of personal sins, and turns a person to God.. preaching from the Bible causes their real personal salvation.
 
Prayer alone is not enough you have to base a saving faith also on God's words..
 
(1 Cor 9:16 KJV)  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
 
(Isa 55:11 KJV)  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
 
(Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
 
Psalms 119:37  Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way. 38  Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear. 39  Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good. 40  Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness. 41  VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word. 42  So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word. 43  And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments. 44  So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever. 45  And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts. 46  I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed. 47  And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.  48  My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes. 49  ZAIN. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. 50  This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me. 51  The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law. 52  I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself. 53  Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law. 54  Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. 55  I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law. 56  This I had, because I kept thy precepts. 57  CHETH. Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words. 58  I entreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word. 59  I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies. 60  I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments. 61  The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law. 62  At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments. 63  I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts. 64  The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes. 65  TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word. 66  Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments. 67  Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. 68  Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.  69  The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart. 70  Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law. 71  It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes. 72  The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

Realize this fact also that no one, no one is saved healed, delivered, redeemed apart for the hearing of God's words, God's promises in the Bible and one of the most effective means of praying prayers now as well is praying God's words.. too
 
Acts 8: 26  And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. 27  And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, 28  Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. 29  Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30  And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
31  And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. 32  The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: 33  In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. 34  And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? 35  Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. 36  And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 37  And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 38  And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. 39  And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. 40  But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
 
(Rev 2:10 KJV)  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. 11  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
 
sadly in contrast  now
 
(Jude 1:4 KJV)  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5  I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
 
The lazy and immoral, rather uncommitted to Christ  Christians still tend not to even find daily time for Bible reading, for prayer and do also want  want just to pray a simple Mac Donald like prayer and get immediate results.. they are certainly not even prayer warriors..  whereas the Bible firstly says to be in continual prayer and even in praise, in mediation on God's words all the time  now too.
 
I am also still shocked to still hear false counsellors, false pastors, false elders,  tell lies to such  personally unrepentant wicked persons that God will next bless their marriages, jobs, finances too anyway.. all they have to do is pray.. not true.. if you want to have you prayer answers you have to also try to keep God's commandments.
 
Grace and Prayer alone is not enough you have to base a person's saving faith on God's words.. ironic some people like to claim they are religious but they still really do not apply God's words in their personal lives, they do not like it mentioned too. They are rather backsliders..
 
In the Old Testament also we have God's word that also says that while the tribe of Israel was unfaithful in contrast  the tribe of Judah was faithful to God
 
(Hosea 11:12 KJV)  Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.
 
(Titus 3:3 KJV)  For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
 
(1 Tim 6:9 KJV)  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
 
(Gal 3:3 KJV)  Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
 
(1 Cor 1:20 KJV)  Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
 
(Rom 1:21 KJV)  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
 
Such contrasting spiritual behavior amongst even professing believers is not surprising, in fact in the Old Testament and the New Testament we do generally have two clearly contrasting types of professing believers in God, as we know by the parable of the wise and foolish virgins. One group had a superficial faith only.. while ones is a committed faith
 
(Mat 25:1 KJV)  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.2  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
 
Sadly now
 
(Jude 1:4 KJV)  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5  I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
   
       We are to read and practise all of the Bible and not just what some men told you now too. I have met too many supposedly professing Christian persons who are bitter cause their prayers have been answered cause they thought  that their prayers or at least the prayer of others prayer was also a  valid substitution for their daily personal Bible study, fellowshipping with God, their own being daily led by the Holy Spirit.. it seems most believers are in this category, but not all.. too  many persons falsely are acting as saints in public  but in private they show another ungodly side.. for  there are many of those who claim to be spiritual but admit they are really still ignorant of the Bible's full teachings  now too..
 
One person said to me that they believe only in prayer and they do not want to participate in a  Bible study for "I might be misinterpreting God's word and forgive me if I am but that is between God and me ", and naturally they thus added "I really struggle with my salvation" and they even still have their eyes on mere men and not God or the Bible for they also said "I see people who have been with the lord a long time doing things and saying things that does not match with the word of god, so naturally it does cause confusion!" and "we would not have so much self righteousness in the Christian community!"
 
Imagine that they clearly are unteachable, unsubmissive, and are unwilling to discuss the Bible in the open, they seem to be afraid to do so and why? the devil does not like the word of God ..
 
     (Eph 4:29 KJV)  Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30  And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31  Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. 5:1  Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2  And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour. 3  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4  Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5  For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7  Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9  (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
 
I do not liked rightfully really do not approve of  Holiday Christians, you know what I mean, those religious like persons who mostly pretend they do serve God, love their fellow man  on Holidays, Sundays and live falsely like they want to the rest of the time.. you know the same persons  who do also post the such kind loving sweet nice messages on the internet but personally also send me real insulting, un Christ like private  personal correspondences, with bad name calling too, slanders, lies too,  and if you really want  to see an example of some of  them just ask me.. I got a few of them this week too.. and the first thing I do next think is that how they also really do treat their spouses too? they are kind to them in public but rude at home too? these things really should not be so.
 
What happened to being kind, loving one to another all the time? and what about what the Bible says about watching our tongues?
 
(James 3:1 KJV)  My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. 2  For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. 3  Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4  Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. 5  Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6  And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7  For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8  But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9  Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.  10  Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11  Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12  Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. 13  Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 14  But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15  This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 18  And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. 4:1  From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2  Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5  Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9  Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10  Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
 
(Luke 6:26 KJV)  Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
 
(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 
Jeremiah 6:27  "I have set you as an assayer and a fortress among My people, That you may know and test their way.
 
I have spent a whole year now  talking almost everyday on the internet with many many many people
 
(2 Tim 2:15 KJV)  Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
 
(1 John 2:8 KJV)  Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 9  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. 11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
 
Sadly one of my role in life has been rightfully to ask people to also repent of their wrong doings for God has also called us to that role.. some people want the glorious, easy jobs rather only.. asking some one to repent is like washing toilets for some one .. they cannot humble themselves to that role yet
 
(Gal 6:1 KJV)  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
 
Here is a bit of advice from some else about  my messages
 
"  I just have one word of caution for you before you decide on your course of action.  If you are a Christian then you have to ask yourself the following question.  Is anything that he says in his messages biblically unsound?  Does what he says argue or disagree with the scriptures?  If so please feel free to remove him from your group.  But if you can't honestly say that he has gone against scripture you will find yourself in the position of falling into God's wrath.  Please be careful. Many people think that Jesus is all sweetness and light that he is a lamb but his is not always the case.  Jesus loves us immeasurably but he also knows that if you do not discipline your children you hate them.  This means that many times Christ will punish us and even though it hurts at the moment our best interests are at heart.  I would hazard a guess that many of the people who are the most offended by you are so because he has touched a nerve in their own life, some sin that perhaps they have hidden or decided "it wasn't really a sin after all".  Nobody likes to have their sin's pointed out for all to see.  No one likes to have the harsh light of truth shone into the dark places we all have in our hearts.  So again I caution you to make sure that when you make the decision between expedience and righteousness that you make the right one."
 
I am often really amazed that I have sent the very same, exact  message to many many people, who firstly admit to being  professing, dedicated  Christians, true servants of God.   I next tended to get back actually  five totally different responses to the same message even:
  a.. 1: No responses
  b.. 2. Just plain deleting of all of my  messages.
  c.. 3: A thank you, or praises towards God for the content of the message
  d.. 4 a simple polite  disagreement to my message.
  e.. 5. A false slander of me, a personal challenge of my spirituality , even a very a false attempt to discredit me,  cause they cannot discredits the message 's Biblical content, very common act of unbelievers and surprising now of  some believers. It does appear often that some of the really Convicted men and women, or those whose pride has been pricked, or their big ego aroused,  and next tend to still  falsely look for false  reasons not to face the message so they do try to falsely still do try to hurt, insult, try to discredit the messenger in response. They firstly rather do not have a humble, broken, contrite heart nor a  teachable, repentant  spirit, nor clearly a loving one.  Of course they have supposedly valid reasons for also their immoral acts towards me too  like if you did not send me the message I would not have been offended... yeah right! God still knows all and God is not fooled by any of this.. God has his lessons you have to learn and he will repeat them till you do as well now.. some will reap your woes instead.

(Mat 11:21 KJV)  Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

(Mat 23:14 KJV)  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
 
(Mat 23:15 KJV)  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
 
(Mat 23:23 KJV)  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
 
(Mat 23:25 KJV)  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

(Mat 23:29 KJV)  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

(Luke 6:25 KJV)  Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

(Jude 1:11 KJV)  Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
 
(Rev 8:13 KJV)  And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
 
(Rev 9:12 KJV)  One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
 
(Rev 11:14 KJV)  The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
 
(Rev 12:12 KJV)  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
 
Rom 1:25 KJV)  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
 
(Mal 3:1 KJV)  Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. 2  But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: 3  And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
 
      Any Good salesman knows that if you want a sale you have to ask the customer does he want to buy it? If you want to cause people to experience the life in Christ you have to ask them to repent also. Unfortunately this latter topic is not popular with the flesh for many have not yet crucified the flesh and the lust thereof, they have no yet died with Christ.
 
(Luke 24:46 KJV)  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:  47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
 
(Acts 17:30 KJV)  And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
 
(Acts 8:12 KJV)  But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
 
(Dan 12:3 KJV)  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
 
If you read my messages you know they are mostly Bible verses and yet some persons do still now falsely and strongly seem to object to find God's words being quoted by me as very objectionable in contrast to others that 
 
(Acts 17:11 KJV)  These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
 
Why is that they dislike a study of the scriptures? they cannot refute the conviction of verses I quoted for a start and some lazy  people also would falsely believe now that we can and should show love to others without preaching God's words to them.. thus they wrongfully oppose the preaching of God's words..  for they are led by a wrong Spirit now.
 
Also "how can you preach to someone " some wrote to me.. and they also strongly too opposed to the discussion of God's word too.. that is all very unchristian like  too.. they want to live their own lives, and to do that which is right in their own eyes, mainly to get glory from man as well ( pride still prevails there too)  and not from God now too, they want to be worshipped instead of worshipping God, and ironically they will even blame others for the guilt, condemnations  and not God, themselves, that they still feel as a result too. Their false attempts at bashing me, kicking me out, me God's messenger won't help them any more next too... God is not mocked for what a person sows they will reap next still.
 
Some religious even persons go as far as becoming idolterous and state "who needs the Bible?" "I am already  a Christian", even "I have a husband to teach me ", or  "I go to a good church", "I am part of a prayer group" and thus they wrongfully do they think next  that their good church works, services, associations  will now really save them now too... the devil has them already and they do not realize it too. The Word they reject , the Bible, is Jesus himself and they substituted him  still with very poor, bitter replacements.
 
Jesus preached, the apostles preached repentances to others and they often quoted the Bible,  and so on.. so why do some people falsely pretend that preaching is not valid still? and why are some of the persons  they so afraid of and oppose the preaching of God's words, the Gospel  of repentance now too? why? simply cause it  is God's words,  the only thing  that  brings personal repentance, real conviction of personal sins, and turns a person to God.. preaching from the Bible causes their real personal salvation.
 
Grace, Prayer alone is not enough for you, you do  have to base a saving faith also on God's words  and  personal repentance.
 
(1 Cor 9:16 KJV)  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
 
(Isa 55:11 KJV)  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
 
(Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God
