    Hello Brooke, Most folks speculate on whatever kind of fruit it was. All we know is, it was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Lynn :)

  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on 1 Thessalonians 5:18
    It is God's will for us to be thankful because He knows that it is good for us to have an attitude of thankfulness towards Him. When we have a thankful attitude and an attitude of appreciation for Him and what He does for us, it does not leave much room for ingratitude in our lives.In reading Psalms 8:3-6, we can see ourselves in perspective to God's creation:When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man, that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet. God has given us-humanity-dominion over the things that He has created. And beyond that, out of all humanity, we have been given a tremendous responsibility to develop righteous character and have the potential of living eternally in His Kingdom. This thought alone should help us to be thankful each day.

    Sunday, by the gracing of the Holy Spirit, let us see if the Spirit can clarify the words in Psalms 8:3-6. First let us clarify whose words are spoken by the psalmist. II Samuel 23:1-2 Now these be the last words of David, David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, (vs) 2 The spirit of the Lord (God) spake by me (David), and his (Gods) word was in my (Davids) tongue. God is speaking the words in the psalms not David. Psalms 8:3-6 When I (Jesus) consider thy (Gods) heavens (literal and symbolic of us), the work of thy (Gods) fingers, the moon (literal and symbolic of Jesus) and the stars (literal and symbolic of angels), which thou (God) hast ordained; (vs) 4 What is man (us) that thou (God) are mindful of him (us)? and the son of man (Jesus) that thou (God) visitest him (Jesus)? For thou (God) hast made him (Jesus in the flesh) a little lower than the angles (messengers of Spirit), and (God) has crowned him (Jesus) with glory and honour. Thou (God) madest him (Jesus) to have dominion over the works of thy (Gods) hands; and thou (God) hast put all things under his (Jesus) feet. Jesus has dominion over all things not us. May the Spirit grace you with his words.
  • I believe the sudden destruction will be caused by the "rapture"(harpazo) that Paul writes about.

  • Pastor inviting evangelist who lift up Calvinist in pulpit preaching a damnable doctrine
  • Dwight - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5:22
    Calvinism teaches that a great number of human beings created with no chance of being saved-this is not the Christianity of the KJV Bible. And by the way, was Jonathan Edwards and Charles Spurgeon calvinist? and was it truly calvinist that should be given credit for THE GREAT AWAKENING? The internet makes them out to be calvinist-but Rome has men who post slander to even good men who have passed away and cannot defend themselves.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5:22
    Greetings Dwight - I see your point. If indeed Calvin did teach that some men could not be saved. I do not really know what Calvin taught. I know he was involved with the Geneva Bible.

    What does the Bible say about certain people and their salvation? Let us turn to the scriptures.

    Malachi Chapter 1: 1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi 2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? [Was] not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,

    3 And I HATED ESAU, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

    Esau rejected the things of God, this is a long study, and as such God rejected him. Can you imagine God said he hated Esau?

    Hebrews Chapter 12:14 Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

    15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble [you], and thereby many be defiled;

    16 Lest there [be] any fornicator, or profane person, as ESAU, who for one morsel of meat SOLD HIS BIRTHRIGHT.

    17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, HE WAS REJECTED: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. ESAU WAS REJECTED OF THE LORD.

    Obadiah 1:18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it. (there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau)

    Esau married two Hittite women who were of the Canaanite tribes which the Lord had forbidden Israel to do.

    Seems harsh, but there it is. Esau rejected the things and blessings of the Lord, looks like the Lord had "returned" the favor. The Herod family were of Esau per Jewish historian Josephus, you know the king who killed all the children in Bethlehem.

    Those who are unmotivated are always determined, those who are willing to stand up, and those who bite a goal are the most likely to succeed
  • K Laughon on 1 Thessalonians 5
    In Hebrews we learn that God has given us "today". Previously man lived by seasons & times. Remember his will is for us to worship him. He gives us today to receive the gift of eternal life.To come for the fulfilment of abundant living. To enter into his discipleship & commandment of walking in his love. As in any generation, today is our hope and could be answer. He is seeking us always, are we going to submit to him as an individual, nation, or world!? Friend, nothing would please him more than to be your God & to lead us out. John 3:16🕊️
  • I'm wanting to know if this means the peace of Isreal that the president is trying to get?
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5
    My kingdom is not of this world. In my house are many mansions if it were not so I would tell you. Be not deceived many will come and say look here or their. A generation shall not pass till all things be fulfilled. They shall say peace,and suddenly destruction will befall them. Remember He has created all things and all exist because of Him. Principalities and powers. There is no power than that which comes through Jesus Christ! We look not on things that are seen, but heavenly things.
  • Fred Beck on 1 Thessalonians 5
    Everytime I read a portion or look at a piece in the bible their is something new to see and understand at this moment in time my mind can not help to fixate on vers 18- In everything Give thanks because this is the will the God in Christ concerning us. Then because my mind was pricked with previous words it brings me to be poor in spirit, reminds to be fruitful in sharing the gospel Gods spirit.
  • Cryptic 1 on 1 Thessalonians 5
    Despise not prophesyings vs 20 is a command to the Body of Christ to honor those prophecies given by God in His Word and through the dreams and visions of His modern day prophets. Of course, we have to utilize our discernment as well as follow the leadings of the Holy Spirit, but we must not be ignorant of the fact too that God is speaking today in a very real way to His Church.
  • D W L - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5
    Jesus said it is finished, there are no new prophecies or teachings it is complete -- John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. --- Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: Revelation 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    P. Tozi... well said. I will pray for you.
  • Patty Tozi on 1 Thessalonians 5
    Our Father is the Great I Am. He guides me daily in what l do. He walks closely as l help others. He shows me what to do in any situation. He knows when l am weary from too many emotions of others. He stops me in mid air and guides me to a quiet place where l can talk to Him and rest. The rest gives me strength to start again. The enemy leaves. The light of God Stays! GLORY TO MY FATHER ALWAYS! !
  • Us should not grow weary we should continuously encourage the weak and the feeble for the day of the Lord is nigh
  • I Am that Michael Isaac Dale on 1 Thessalonians 5
    These are the last days as it is the last time. The end is near as Jesus Christ is come in the flesh (yet many, being antichrists in sheep's clothing, confess not.) Nonetheless, all thanks and glory be to our Holy Father. As it is written, For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, and, Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
