The Disobedient and unruly

Who has charge over you? Your parents, guardians, the Government, the police and many others. Everyone has someone over them, someone they must obey!
Colossians 3: (Ampl.)
22.Servants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not only when their eyes are on you, as pleasers of men, but in simplicity of purpose (with all your heart) because of your reverence for the Lord and as a sincere expression of your devotion to Him.
23.Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men,
24.Knowing (with all certainty) that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your (real) reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ, the Messiah.
25.For he who deals wrongfully will [reap the fruit of his folly and] be punished for his wrongdoing. And [with God] there is no partiality [no matter what a person's position may be, whether he is a slave or a master].

1 John 2: 6
    6.Whoever says he abided in Him (Jesus) ought to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He (Jesus) walked and conducted Himself.

2 Peter 1:
20.Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21.For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

1 John 4: (Ampl.)
20.If any one says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God Whom he has not seen.
21.And this command we have from Him, that he who loves God shall love his brother also.

Psalm 1:
  1.Blessed is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly (sinners, mean, disobedient)[following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
  2.But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law - the precepts, instructions, the teachings of God - he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night. [2 Tim. 3: 16; Gal. 3: 1 - 29; Rom. 13: 8 - 10.]
  3.And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth his fruit in its season; his leaf also shall not fade or wither, and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity. [Jer. 17: 7, 8.]
  4.Not so the wicked [those disobedient and living without God are not so]. But they are like the chaff [worthless, dead, without substance] which the wind drives away.
  5.Therefore the wicked, those disobedient [and living without God], shall not stand [justified] in the judgment; nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous [those who are upright and in right standing with God].
  6.For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God's will] shall perish.

Psalms 16:
11.You (God) will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore. [Acts 2:25-28, 31]

Psalm 23:
  1.The Lord is my (our) shepherd; I (we) shall not lack.
  2.He makes me (us) lie down in green pastures; He leads me (us) beside the still and restful waters.
  3.He refreshes and restores my (our) life; He leads me (us) in the paths of righteousness for His names sake.
  4.Yes, though I (we) walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I (we) will fear or dread no evil; for You are with me (us); Your rod (to protect) and Your staff (to guide), they comfort me (us).
  5.You prepare a table before me (us) in the presence of my (our) enemies; You anoint my (our) head with oil; my (our) cup runs over.
  6.Surely or only goodness, mercy and unfailing love shall follow me (us) all the days of my (our) life; and through the length of days the house of the Lord shall be my (our) dwelling place.

Psalm 34: all
13.Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
14.Depart from evil and do good; seek inquire for and crave peace, and pursue - go after - it!
15.The eyes of the Lord are toward the uncompromisingly righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.
16.The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17.When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles.
18.The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart, and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and throughly penitent.
19.Many evils confront the [consistently] righteous; but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20.He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. (Jesus)
21.Evil shall cause the death of the wicked, and they who hate the just and righteous shall be held guilty and shall be condemned.
22.The Lord redeems the life of His servants, and none of those who take refuge and trust in Him shall be condemned or held guilty.

Psalm 37:
18.The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19.They shall not be ashamed (disappointed) 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 (be) consume(d) away.
21.The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous showeth mercy, and giveth.
22.For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
23.The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
24.Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord up holdeth him with his hand.
25.I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteousness forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.(because they know who they are.)

James 2:
8. If you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, You shalt (Agapao) love your neighbor as yourself, you do well:
9. But if you have respect to persons, you commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
11. For he that said, do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if you commit no adultery, Yet if you kill, you are become a transgressor of the law.
12. So speak you, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
13. For he shall have judgment without mercy, that has shown no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
(Mercy is the opposite of judgment. Mercy is reserved for those who walk in love, and judgment for those who walk in sin.)

James 3:
13.Who is a wise man and endued (equipped) with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation (not out of pride) 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 (trait) descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual,devilish.
16.For where envying and strife is, there is confusion (disorder) and every evil work.
17.But the wisdom (trait) that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits (of the Spirit), without partiality, and without hypocristy.
18.And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

2 John
10.If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine (is disloyal to what Jesus Christ taught), do not receive him (this teacher of Evil) – do not accept him, do not welcome or admit him – into (your) house or bid him Godspeed or give him any encouragement.
11.For he who wishes him success – who encourages him, wishing him Godspeed – is a partaker in his evil doings.

2 Timothy 2:
21.So whoever cleanses himself [from what is ignoble and unclean] - who separates himself from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences - will [then himself] be a vessel set apart and useful for honorable and noble purposes, consecrated and profitable to the Master, fit and ready for any good work.
22.Shun youthful lust and flee from them, and aim at and pursue righteousness - all that is virtuous and good, right living, conformity to the will of God in thought, word and deed. [And aim at and pursue] faith. love, [and] peace - which is harmony and concord with others - in fellowship with all [Christians], who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.
23.But refuse - shut your mind against, have nothing to do with - trifling (ill-informed, unedifying, stupid) controversies over ignorant questionings, for you know that they foster strife and breed quarrels.
24.And the servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome - fighting and contending. Instead he must be kindly to every one and mild-tempered - preserving the bond of peace; he must be a skilled and suitable teacher, patient and forbearing and willing to suffer wrong.
25.He must correct his opponents with courtesy and gentleness, in the hope that God may grant that they will repent and come to know the Truth - that is, that they will perceive and recognize and become accurately acquainted with and acknowledge it,
26.And that they may come to their senses [and] escape out of the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him, [henceforth] to do His [God's] will.

1 Corinthians 15:(NIV)
33.Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character."
34.Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning: for there are some who are ignorant of God - I say this to your shame.

1 Timothy 5: (Ampl.)
  8.If any one fails to provide for his relatives, and especially for those of his own family, he has disowned the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.

Jude:
17. But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18. How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lust.
19. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
(God doesn't separate them. They do it themselves by operating in their will not Gods' will.)
20. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
(and you're the one that decides to take the time to pray in the Spirit.)
21. (you) Keep yourselves in the (agape)love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.(keeping yourself in the love of God is your decision. You're the one that decides that you're going to walk in love, not God.)

Rev. 3: 15 - 22
15.I know your (record of) works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot!
16.So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of My (God’s) mouth!
17.For you say, I am rich, I have prospered and grown wealthy, and I am in need of nothing; and do not realize and understand that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind and naked. (Hos. 12:8)
18.Therefore I counsel you to purchase from Me ( the God kind of ) gold refined and tested by fire, that you may be (truly) wealthy, and white clothes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nudity from being seen, and salve to put on your eyes that you may see.
19.Those whom I (dearly and tenderly) love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten – (that is,) I discipline and instruct them. So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal, and repent – change your mind and attitude. (Prov. 3:12)
20.Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door (of your heart), I will come in to him (or her) and will eat with him (her), and he (shall eat) with Me.
21.He who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant him to sit beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame (was victorious) and sat down beside My Father on His throne.
22.He who is able to hear, let him listen to and heed what the (Holy) Spirit says to the assemblies.

Rev. 21: 6 - 8
  6.And he said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I (myself) will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life. (Isa. 55:1)
  7.He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
  8.But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive; and as for the unbelieving and faithless; and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations; and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to any one or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed, all of these shall have) their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

Rev. 22: 12-16,
12.Behold, I am coming soon, and I shall bring My wages and rewards with Me, to repay and render to each one just what his own actions and his own work merit.
13.I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. (The Before all and at the End of all)
14.Blessed (happy and to be envied) are those who cleanse their garments that they may have the authority and right to (approach) the tree of life and to enter in through the gates to the city.
15.(But) without are the dogs and those who practice sorceries and impurity (the lewd, adulterers) and the murderers and idolaters and every one who loves and deals in falsehood.
16.I, Jesus, have sent My messenger (angel) to you to witness and to give you assurance of these things for the church (assemblies). I am (both) the Root (the source) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and bright Morning Star.

     This is the record that God gave of his Son, that Jesus came to give us life, and to give us life more abundant. Pray with me now and fill your life with Life.
      Father, I do believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and that he was raised the third day. Lord, I pray that you would forgive me of my sins for I forgive all those that have sinned against me. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and guide me, fill me with your Holy Spirit, give me the strength to withstand anything the Devil can throw at me, and mold me into what you would have me to be, I pray in Jesus name, Amen.
Congratulations you are now a new creature in Christ! Well done! And now pray that god would lead you to a great church.
