  • Mickey for verse 16
    I heard as a baby Christian that the Holy Spirit is your teacher, your comforter, convicter of sin, protector. Study the HS
    In your concordance in the Bible. He comes alongside you when you call. His love is wonderful :)

    Some have asked what the New Testament says about judging others, etc.
    Matthew 7:1
    Luke 6:37
    John 7:24
    1
    Corinthians 4:5
    Concerning unforgiveness, whether in the past or the present: If we don't forgive others, God will not listen to our prayers.
    It's not a feeling. It's an act of obedience no matter how others hurt us. Some of need to forgive ourselves. That was hardest fo me to learn. A really great DVD to watch on the subject, is The Shack. Might find it at Walmart. I had to watch it 28 times.
  • Elias
    Genesis 3:15 I was taught that Christians will bruise the serpent's head, but am I reading scriptures otherwise?: "Bruise thy head" and "Bruise his heel" There must be new testament prophecy fulfilled regarding Genesis 3:15?

    True righteousness is being bornagain of an incorruptible seed which are the words of God ( the seeds of the sower )The bridgroom seeds which are his words Jesus said the goods seeds are the Words of GOD. THEY ARE HIS CHILDREN that are gonna be born in US via his seed. They are Emanuels that are gonna be as the stars of heaven they are the children of Promise,They are spirits Thats y he refers to the H.G.as the PROMISE. These are the incorruptible seed that are gonna take over our bodies Christ in you.My lil children of whom i travail in birth till Christ is formed in you.As we have borne the image of the earthy we must also bear ( birth ) the image of the Heavenly via that GOOD SEED TH WORD

    ACTUALLY I said I was going to refrain BUT I've got some Irish in me and always an opinion I PRAY this opinion is Spirit led! It touches on where our text goes in the 3rd verse ! I teach Sunday School adults at a local REC it's a SMALL OLD SCHOOL ANGLICAN CHURCH! Evangelical for anyone who has read the collection of books a classic ( THE FUNDAMENTALS) all believers need it! 3 REC Priest wrote articles. 3 brings a profound scary issue we see more than I have ever seen in my life! More deadly than hate of Christ! It is an implied Spiritual sleep/apathy sickness! The people are not cussing heaven!! They simply don't acknowledge Christ for who he is! Wow! Think brethren it's the real epidemic!

    God bless you Texas Pilgrim!

    I have been told you only have to believe to be saved, to have eternal life. do you also have to be baptized, is there a difference
  • Ozzie
    From my understanding reading scripture just believing you are saved Baptism is the first command given to identify with Chris being immersed unto his death and bringing up unto life but lets just say if your in the hospital for example and can t be immersed just believe from your heart and you will be saved had an uncle who was an atheist dying of cancer 6 weeks wen to visit him and started understanding scriptures more and more finally went into a coma we went to visit him while he was yet in a coma came out of the comma briefly accepted Christ went right back in a comma died soon after look in scripture one of the thieves hanging on the cross with Christ read that part of scripture.
  • Grace Talbert
    Thanks for the question. yes you have to receive jesus christ and jesus holy spirit in your heart by faith in accepting the gift of salvation. baptism by full
    decent into the water as a declaration of your burial and resurrection with christ as part of your testimony of your acceptance of christ and his spirit.
  • Mickey
    I got saved at home. I had a lot of trouble with spiritual issues after salvation. I had the Holy Spirit help me with those first weeks. I started going to church and felt strongly I should ask to be baptized. I needed it for me. Read Acts 19:1-6
    People get saved watching church, youtube or Christian broadcasts on tv all the time. Watch some Charles Stanley on Sunday tv.
    Take notes. Find a Bible teaching church. That's what I did. My most treasured friend is the Holy Spirit. Learn about Him. Turn off the tv and sit beside your bed and simply talk your heart to Jesus. Nothing will shock him. He already knows everything. :) your relationship will bloom.

    Birds of a Feather Flock Together. With Jesus in our Hearts He Sets us Apart, then Unites Us in Love on the Wings of a Dove with all those who are Born from Above. Freely Sharing Love from our Hearts in Faith, Giving our Lives, Gifts, Resources to Touch Another s Heart so they too will also be Set Apart to Love from their Heart. Isaiah40:31

  • I am
    TRIVIA, as defined by thy Dictionary: matters or things that are very unimportant, inconsequential, or nonessential: trifles: trivialities. Verily, the Spirit of the only Lord GOD teaches no man that the birth of the Christ child, even the resurrection of his Son, the very elect, is a trivial matter. No man saved by the faith of, and belief in, Jesus Christ as his Savior speaks so weakly of GOD.
  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Send no more letters for they only witness your evil heart. My Holy Father's commandment changes not. Repentance of heart is required, and clearly known, when done. Many gentiles gave good confessions and are not men of the flesh, but repented SPIRITS of God, through belief and faith in Jesus Christ their Saviour. IT IS, Every SPIRIT that confessed that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

    Verse 6 It is important that we are able to distinguish between spiritual truth and lies. To do so we must read God's Word and measure what we hear against that. If words are in harmony with what the Bible teaches then this is the truth.
  • Lilian
    Amen praise the Lord hallelujah
  • BSP
    Those who know God know that He is love and that we must imitate him and the love he has and shows.
  • Grace
    1 John is speaking mainly on loving one another and no one made a comment of
    The LOVE of GOD for us and the same LOVE
    We are to show toward one another.
  • I AM THAT I AM
    O thou devil, thou deceived deceiver, thou antichrist: This living Word of GOD says not: Came in the flesh. But the living GOD now says: IS COME in the flesh. NOW. HERE. TODAY. THIS VERY DAY IS JESUS, EVEN THIS CHRIST CHILD, IN THE FLESH. Yea, I NOW say JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH: And NOW COMES the latter end. Yea, the last days of the last time. And NOW, O wicked, What will ye do?
  • Carm
    FEAR .... False.... Evil.,... Appearing.... Real.... Trust in Jesus Christ and your fears will always be replaced!!!
  • Predikuesi
    The comment regarding the "sons of God" is one sided. While it is true that Hebrews states that God does not call any of the angels His son, we cannot but acknowledge that Job 1 and 2 reveals that the sons of God presented themselves before Him. Who were these beings? They cannot be men. There can be no conflict of Scripture here, therefore the use of the term must be different in the Testaments. If there is a conflict, it is always going to be with our own notions rather than God's inerrant Word.

    If you look closely.in Genesis,it says let us make man in our image..then shortly after it says God made Adam,and breathed life into him..That kinda had me too when I first really read it..God has a people.But I don't think all are for the purpose of personal salvation.some wood for the fire and some the silver being purified.keep seeking his wisdom and he's going to show you many things I would hope.Bless you
  • BSP
    No human has ever seen God. We have no idea what God looks like and so nobody is able to describe what he looks like.
  • Juliette
    I like 1st John 4:18. Perfect love casts out all fear. Not some fear but all fear. Not just love but perfect love. Perfect meaning complete and whole.
  • A disciple
    "Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another." What makes people not love their neighbor or even their brother or sister in the Lord? If we are to love one another as Christ has loved us, then we must have the same character, nature and Spirit as Christ. Jesus said, that not understanding His speech is because of not being able to hear His word. That implies the need for a new creation, and having completely abandoned the old! That means a penitent and converted heart that henceforth longs for God and seeks His mercy, acceptance and blessing, and a mind no longer completely enthralled with self or the letcheries of its former life but being born anew, born from above, born of the Word and of the Spirit, TO BE THE CHILDREN, THE REPLICATIONS OF GOD! By this we know that we know God and keep His commandments, BECAUSE WE LOVE THE BRETHREN!
  • Michael
    Has no man seen God? Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
  • Joan
    We must believe in our hearts that Jesus Christ suffered bleed and died for our sins and must confess it with our mouth than we are saved from our sins. There is one GOD, one FAITH and one Baptism. There is no other god but JESUS. No other God but Jesus can offer eternal life. Jesus died for our sins and we have been bought with a price. If you don't believe just fall on your knees and say Jesus!
  • Victoria
    1 John 4 vs 20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
