I really Live this : Cause we are all tempted and I feel reading about this helps us to stay strong in the Lord !!!


Anita From Daytona Beach Fl.'s comment on 2015-05-31 12:30:36:

If we stay away from any temptation especially when the devil knows that we want something that bad he will but just cause of us having it now when the Lord tells us to wait on him because he has a purpose. So we must learn to wait on God. He has something better and a wonderful purpose. Just wait God,s children.This purpose speaks for me as well.


MockingBird's comment on 2015-05-31 07:35:07:

For every transgression and disobedience there is a just recompence of reward : I will be forgiven and cleansed when I confess that sin : at the same time I will also reap a just recompence of reward. David the king faced it : He was forgiven for killing Uriah the Hittite at the same time the sword was on his house hold till the day he died !!!! I must be very wise to not yield to any temptation !!!!

MockingBird's comment on 2014-03-03 09:19:22:

Every temptation only lasts for 45 seconds But if I sort of go with feeding that temptation it will last longer and be harder to resist to not go with it Temptation is in many areas food anger overworking underworking jealousy Movies cars sex outside of marriage etc To endure and overcome I will receive a crown of life I like life and living in the Lord Jesus


Vince's comment on 2013-12-06 03:34:50:

KJV says when we are "tried", and bear up under temptation we are blessed and will receive a crown. Some other versions leave an illusion of works to be "approved" to receive a crown. Tried and true KJV is the right interpretation.


Toni's comment on 2013-12-02 06:22:23:

The definition of endure is: "to last,to remain firm as under trial or suffering; to suffer patiently or without yielding; to bear up under adversity, to hold out." God is promising those who do these things and stand firm during temptation -the trials and tests, He will bless them. God's promises are all faithful and true. We can hold Him to His Word. If we hold out and endure, we will receive eternal life. "But he that endures unto the end, the same shall be saved. (Matt 24:13).


Dorcas's comment on 2013-09-12 06:33:02:

To endure is not just simple we need grace to enable us. i have been in it for so long but thanks to God he has enabled me to overcome.

Hello Clantoal - please just stay with the King James Version of the Holy Bible - there are too many changes and omissions in the NIV. May the Lord bless you

This section of the bible is great, and easy to read and understand. I'm looking forward to get one for my classes on Sundays. It's easy to follow, a great bible to have, and use as references to teach others the true, as found in the King James Version.
