1 Peter Chapter 5 Discussion

    In the bible there are certain foods we are not supposed to eat, pork, shell fish, things like that that we all consume now days but are we still supposed to sustain from eating those foods today? Thank you!
  • DIETARY CAUTIONS AND FUN - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    Those dietary laws were given for various reasons. Jacob wrestled with "a man" till daybreak. His thigh was compressed and crippled and to this day, Jews do not eat animal thighs and tendons.

    There was no refrigeration.

    As polluted as our oceans are today, (referring to the garbage "continents" floating in our oceans; which can be googled with photos).

    Also with nuclear accidents and a report Peter Jennings did in the 90's, with videos: of barrels of nuclear wasted dropped off the back of garbage barges. Only a few miles off shore. That report was buried but I taped it. :D

    I find the Meat Industry most shocking. I don't give a flying leprechaun what they say!! China sells USA their infected meat, so they can buy our non-infected meat for their elite citizens. Only President Trump cared enough to put IMPORT SANCTIONS ON CHINA MEAT. Of course Biden has rescinded all of Trumps sanctions. :(

    All of my allegations are on Google with stories, photos, and arrests made for illegal importing.

    Back in the 60-70's we had FONDUE parties. USDA certified meat dipped in cheese and other fun sauces. Very festive. We need to party safe. People who serve up really festive holiday meals, are Jewish; believe it or not.

    In Texas, it's wall-to-wall Mexican dishes, roasted on a spit Whole pig, barbecue, as in cow; chili cook off'sand FRESHWATER fried catfish. Turkeys don't rule here. We have seafood farms; stuff that doesn't glow in the dark. :D

    The short answer is "no". Take pork for example: God knew the Israelites would die from eating it because they hadn't yet learned how to cure. This was done for their protection.

    (1 Timothy 4:2-4)

    2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

    4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

    This has undertones of the RC church, forcing people to eat fish on Friday due to a fish surplus.
  • Grace Simmonds on 1 Peter 5:8
    Peter is telling us to know the tactics of the enemy, line our selves with the armor of God, and stand. The devil comes in different form and shape and we have to know who we are in Christ Jesus. He comes as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour and if we are not wise not in our wisdom yet the wisdom of God, he will trap us in his snare.Amen.

    Hi Carlos.

    I agree with what you have been told by others, especially prayer throughout your reading for understanding.

    And most important be sure you have gave your life to Christ. Wisdom and understanding is given by the Holyspirit.

    Here's a verse that may encourage you.

    James 1:5-8 (KJV) If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

    But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

    A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

    This is a great site to visit for help.

    God bless.

    Pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit. When you study the Bible, always ask the Holy Spirit to Teach you what you are reading.
  • Bro Barney - in Reply on 1 Peter 5

    I cannot think of a single book that would explain every verse in the Bible. But, there are many fine commentators that can help guide you. I enjoy the teachings of Dr. David Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Radio. For a verse by verse commentator I often turn to David Guzik of Enduring Word Commentary. He provides free resources that can be obtained in many ways. I am sure others will have suggestions also.

    God bless

    Hi CARL64 ,please dont get discouraged ,the Bible is a very big book full of information that no one could possibly remember it all or understand it all first or even second time around ,have patience with yourselves ,the more you read the clearer things become and you start to see the beauty and the love and the perfection and you just want to read more and more as you see it all fitting together so wonderfully ,take your time ,try to relax and enjoy it and dont fret if you dont understand something ,it will all get clearer as you go along .

    Yes, Joshua, It is amazing ( grace) that you have honored God's authority in putting video games behind you. Of course, the devil is relentless, and would try to lure you back, especially in these days that are so needed to be close to God.

    Always go back to the cross. therein lies our victory. Knowing Jesus died specifically and personally for you to overcome any sin of idolatry...he knew before you were born you would have problem with this. He shed His blood but then rose triumphant to free us from any strongholds of enemy and self indulgence. God bless you with great victory that is already won for you. no striving, just faith in Him...... You have a beautiful name. one of the only 2 of all Israel to went into the promise land, knowing the giants were promised defeat.

    Kimberly, I would encourage you to show your dad James 5:14-16

    14Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

    15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

    16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.


    The Lord God healed me in just a moment of time - I thank the Lord God for the promise He made to us in James 5. But infinitely more important than our physical health is our salvation - now I don't know your dad, but I know from Matthew 7 the majority of "Christians" are not of Christ, even those that prophesy in His name (I hope that's not the case for your dad, but I'll write this because he may need to hear it):

    Matthew 7

    22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    And he may be of Christ, but that depends on if he's cried out to the Lord Jesus with a broken heart of sorrow for breaking God's Laws:

    James 2:10

    "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."

    Psalms 34:18

    "The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit."

    God saves someone when they have sorrowed to repentance, which is being made sorry after a godly manner (i.e. repentance is not turning/changing)

    2 Corinthians 7

    9Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.

    10For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

  • Joshua Babbitt - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    I just sent this message to someone else, and saw your prayer request, and hope you'll prayfully consider this matter:

    I was ill for almost 3 years, close to being bedridden, but in just one moment of time, the Lord Jesus Christ had mercy on me, and God healed me. Just like it says to do in James 5, I called for the elders of the church to pray over me, and the elder and I spent maybe 50mins confessing our faults one to another, and after we prayed for God's forgiveness and mercy, he laid hands on me, anointed me with oil in the name of the Lord (poured olive oil on my head), and prayed for the Lord's healing, and that moment I was healed.

    We didn't know what we were doing, but we just tried to follow the scripture as closely as possible, and the Lord healed me! I wasn't healed because of our own goodness, but because of the Lord's goodness and mercy that He showed on me and others who were suffering grief for me (like my mom).

    I encourage you to pray for faith, and follow what the Lord instructs in James 5:

    James 5

    14Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

    15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

    16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

    Heavenly Father, according to Thy Promises, in the Mighty Name of Jesus, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, I claim healing for Kevin and Jenny. 2 Samuel 7:25, "And now, O LORD GOD, the word that Thou hast spoken concerning Thy servants (Kevin and Jenny), and concerning their house (their bodies), establish it (healing) for ever, and do as Thou hast said." Thank You Heavenly Father, Thank You Jesus and Thank You Holy Spirit. Kevin, I have you both in my prayers. God bless you both.

    Gods word / scriptures is your weapon! Speak it Out loud (faith comes by hearing, and our words have power) also put on the full armor of God! Ephesians 6!! Stand on Gods word and promises. Submit to God, trust the Lord. Pray! God is your Help and a very present help in time of trouble and or need. Apply Psalm 91 over you and your home , he is your protection! He will send give his angels Charge over you to watch over you as you ask and pray. Put on worship and praise music, it will change the atmosphere. Pray Often and anoint your home ! If you are unfamiliar with these, please consider looking up some prayers and online teachings on spiritual warfare. Confess your sins, those could be a doorway to the enemy. Also look up spiritual house cleansing. Sometimes we have things in our home that is not of God, as you pray, may the Holy Spirit show and guide you. God bless you.
  • Tom - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    We do not wrestle against flesh and blood! Therefore consider to study Ephesians chapter 6 and other scriptures; Apply these scriptures by putting on the full armor of God! The word of God is our sword!! Use it it's your weapon. See Luke 4 how Jesus defeated the enemy! He said it is written! And then quoted the scriptures! Also speak out loud scriptures like psalm 91 for protection look up scripture about spiritual warfare! Also "Praise and worship" is a weapon! Praying through the house and Anointing it and playing worship music softly will change the spiritual atmosphere. There are some great teachings on the internet on spiritual warfare. I pray the Lord will lead and guide you, by his Holy Spirit.
  • Tom - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    Often when people come out of other religions from personal experience it's necessary to

    1. Repent,

    2. confess

    3. renounce and then

    4. rededicate your life to Our Lord Jesus Christ!

    Sometimes these steps are necessary because of strongholds that may be there! Please consider seeking help from a trustworthy Christian pastor or counselor IF you may need deliverance from any relationship or bondage so you can experience total freedom if that may apply to you or be the case.

    I pray the Lord Jesus Christ, by His Holy Spirit would lead and guide you, continue to order and direct your path!

    Jesus Christ came so we might have life and Life in abundance! He came to set the captives free! He loves you! God bless you and I hope this may be helpful.
  • Carleton on 1 Peter 5
    On break at work. Just for fun, it just occurred to me that I have never owned a TV. Once around 35-38 years ago I bought a VCR for my roommates TV and shared in the use of the TV. We had zero reception and cable wasn't big in the early 80's.

    I think this was God's leading in my life looking back.

  • Richard in Christ on 1 Peter 5
    1 Corinthians 1:10. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    1 Corinthians 2:12-13. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

    Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

    1 Corinthians 3:19. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

    1 Corinthians 3:21,23 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.

    1 Corinthians 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

    Bonnie, I think you for that advice but we have done everything from cps, police, sheriff, DHS, and Doj. Everyone that we have run into is corrupt including the attorneys that we hire to help us and do absolutely nothing. But I think you for your response. I believe that only God can help at this point.
