WHO IS MY BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER?



We are not saved by our works but by the work of Christ, Who gives us Holy Spirit to work in/through us, that many more may be saved.

Brethren / Brother: English - Greek Strongs dictionary: G80:

● a brother
● brethren in Christ
● his brothers by blood
● ☛all men
● apostles
● Christians, as those who are exalted to the same heavenly place

Luk 8:21 And Jesus answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are
☛these☚ which hear the word of God, and do it.

Luk 14:26 If any man come to Me(Jesus), and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple

Luk 16:28 For I (Jesus) have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment

Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me;
☛him☚ shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you

Act 7:25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not

Act 7:26 And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another?

Rom 7:1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law [of Moses],) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?

Rom 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law [of Moses] by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to Him (Jesus) who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit (Gal.5:22-23) unto God

Rom 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh

Rom 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, the fulness of the Gentiles be come in

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a ☛living sacrifice☚, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service

Rom 15:14 And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another

Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren,
☛mark☚ them which cause ☛divisions☚ and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and ☛avoid☚ them

1Co 6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren

Galatians 5:13 For you, my brothers, were called to freedom; only do not let your freedom become an opportunity for the sinful nature (worldliness, selfishness), but through love serve and seek the best for one another.

1 Thessalonians 5:4
But you, relative; believers, [all you who believe in Christ as Savior and acknowledge Him as God’s Son] are not in spiritual darkness [nor held by its power], that the day [of judgment] would overtake you [by surprise] like a thief;

1 John 2:11-15
For this is the message which you [believers] have heard from the beginning [of your relationship with Christ], that we should [unselfishly] love and seek the best for one another; and not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother [Abel]. And why did he murder him? Because Cain’s deeds were evil, and his brother’s were righteous.
Do not be surprised, believers, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed out of death into Life, because we love the brothers and sisters. He who does not love remains in [spiritual] death. Everyone who hates (works against) his brother is [at heart] a murderer [by God’s standards]; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

1 John 3:14
We know that we have passed out of death into Life, because we love the brothers and sisters. He who does not love remains in [spiritual] death.

By this the children of God and the children of the devil are clearly identified: anyone who does
not practice
☛righteousness☚ [who does not seek God’s will in thought, action, and purpose] is not of God, nor is the one who does
☛not love☚ his brother
1 John 3:10

● Righteousness of believers:
A sincere desire to please God by keeping his law ( John 13:34-35 +
1 John 3:23) John is both commanded and approved by him. However, human fallibility means that true righteousness must be the product of the Holy Spirit’s work (Gal.5:22-23) in the believer.
