  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    And again, it is now written, Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore: for it IS holy unto you: every one that defiles it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever does ANY work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done: but in the seventh IS the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth ANY work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
    Yes, I think in this generation we're living in, submitting, or showing respect to elders, or people that are older is no longer part of the make-up of children, young adults and even adults. It is a sad sight-where the morality of people has decayed. The older that do not lead by example, who are corrupt themselves, should not get any respect, and the younger should not follow submit to them.

    i like that Peter tells how to: if we cast out cares, we admit that we are weak and need god's help, we find it. We are kept safe under his wings of protection. we are reminded who our enemy is and we can resist him. i exhort us believers to continue in the grace of God and to help each other.

    Humble ourselves before the mighty hand of God, Oh how we should be brought so low, knowing the Eternal Son of God humbled Himself in obedience to the Fathers will in taking our nature, willingly He made Himself of no reputation and was obedient even to the death of the cross. For the Joy that was set before Him He endured. Now in Glory, our Mediator, interceding for us feeble souls that we May we cast our cares on Him, the One whom loved us from Eternity past and knows every hair upon our head, our thought, intention and heart. Fear not, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. Every Blessing.

  • David Guardado
    God has everything well in hand for us all, Sooo for all of us children to do what we need to do in His Name amen

    As a born again believer in our Lord I see this picture as child abuse. I can expect this in the carnal world but on this site that prints out Gods word this is so offensive. Would you offer this picture of this helpless infant in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ?
  • Sarah
    Wow, what a powerful word. God is speaking to me. Praise God.
  • David Chapman
    It is wise to humble yourself before Great and powerful Awesome God, but willingly I choose to do that out of Respect for the King of Kings. I am a lowly. Sinner Saved by grace, I owe every thing to God I myself am most exceedly to serve my God forever as I can never pay Him back For his gift of eternal life. Praise God forevermore.
  • A disciple
    "Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour:" A sober person is serious and thoughtful. When you are sober, you are not drunk. With respect to our manner of life as a Christian disciple of Jesus temperate or sparing in the use of anything that would benumb our conscience and our abilities of reason, sanity, or self-control. It means being led by the Spirit of God, rational, not given to excessive indulgence in drink or any other activity, which its purpose is to cause us to throw off virtue and a good conscience toward God. Vigilant means you don't take a nap on the job, or relax your sense of urgency and commitment and watchfulness.

    I appreciate the many testimonies and insights regarding this beloved verse. Very encouraging and helpful
  • BSP
    Verse 10 brings out that all though we may suffer for a little while, we have hope to look forward to. If we rely on Jehovah God we can have a bright future with eternal blessings.

    D. Painter - that was really very inspired to you of the Lord. To 'dig' out the corroborating verses like this - is a beautiful thing.
  • Fredrick phiri
    This vers is a very dependable anchor to the victory. In real life situation there if your mind is not sober nothing inspired you can do. Therefore, for one to work effectively in the vine yard must be sober .

    Eunice. T. (if you ever see this) - you are so very right about our life in Christ being 'smooth'; Yes, we will have trials to test us, but God never puts on us more than we can bear, and knowing that makes our walk with Him - a smooth one. Our trials are nothing compared to the Heaven that awaits us. " ... Jesus endured the cross, despising the shame, for the JOY that was set before Him."

    Sean, 1 Cor.5:10 tells us we would have to leave this planet to not associate with the sinners of this world. Pray to the Lord for grace, each day, to live in that situation and be a witness for the Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. GB
  • Irene123
    V. 13 - " ... and so doth Marcus my son." We know Peter was married (Matt. 8:14; Mk.1:30) so I just wonder if this was his issue or a 'spiritual' son? We know Paul was not married, nor was he a hypocrite as some on here with deviate minds affirm, and that Timothy was his 'spiritual son. God did NOT use hypocrites to write His word.

    Thuo:---we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God
    Acts14:22 /--- The servant is not greater than his Lord, if they have persecuted me they will also persecute you---.John 15:20 / yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 2Timothy 3:12
    Called:John 6:44.Ask forgiveness/ Baptized with The Holy Ghost:Matthew 3:11/ Made New 2Corinthians 5:17

    Sobering,yet so obvious. It is the essence of love.Without humility, how can we love?
  • Nancy

    God is so good to us!
    Humbling ourselves to the Lord will make Him direct our ways and guidance for a smooth life.
  • Geraldine Cole
    Praise Jesus when we think we are the worse sinner
  • Mike
    We can throw all of our problems on Jehovah by praying, reading and meditating on God's Word and letting Jehovah God holy spirit help you
  • Irene123
    To Sean - You may have gotten help on your problem by now with associating with 'unbelievers' ..... ? I send you these in case you've never seen them 1 Cor. 6:12-15.
  • Irene123
    To Michael, 5 days ago - I think maybe Peter was a bigger failure than you - before the day of Pentecost in Acts ch. 2 when he gave the1st message of Jesus' new church - failure when he DENIED Jesus 3 times; you haven't denied Him. Just go to Acts ch. 2 - read vs.37-38.
  • Zagga Fenton
    My commend is on verse '8', there's a hurt and angry feeling I have on thinking these individuals, fashion themselves in the opposition of God, delight themselves in displeasing God. Their glory is to rob you and I from receiving God's favors. They gave up their fear of God, and now trying to rob us of our fear of God. They choses to be a parasites rather than being a servants and sons of God.
  • Michael
    I believe every word and thank Jesus for Apostle Paul great unexplained blessings he has done for me, though now I am one who has been fulfilling the lust of the flesh and I hate it, every time I do the same thing over and over and over I hate it and deserve not Gods love because things God has revealed to me are for others to know, instead I continue to fulfill the lust of the flesh and people see me back and forth people like myself angers God because I'm suppose to be an example, a follower of Jesus so that others may see his good works I'm sorry Lord Jesus you know me I'm the biggest failure that ever exist

    Did no one notice v. 13? "The church that is at Babylon .........saluteth you;........." Peter wrote this; he was the pastor of the Mesopotamian church at Babylon. He wouldn't have sent this salutation had he not been it's pastor. Nor does this name apply to Rome, simply because the Apostles followed after Jesus and would have used 'disparaging' remarks. This was the actual Babylon.
  • Iene123
    v. 1 - ".....and a witness of the sufferings of Christ ....."; this reminds me of Lk. 22:61 - and the Lord turned and looked upon Peter. Oh, the sorrow, guilt, and silent recrimination Peter must have felt!! That one phrase brings tears to my eyes. Because, the Lord didn't condemn him, not even silently. His look was of pure love, because He knew beforehand Peter would do this, and He knew why.
