    Solomon was the wisest man, so how can someone so wise defy God and go against His will? This has always puzzled me.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2
    Dwayne,

    The Lord was pleased with Solomon (2 Chronicles 1:1) & so offered to answer his request (1:7-12). And Solomon's wisdom was unmatched anywhere, even as we read through the Song of Songs, Proverbs & Ecclesiastes. As well, he built the first Temple in Jerusalem & expanded the united kingdom of Israel as far as Egypt & the Euphrates River. However, his wisdom even though I'm sure extended into his familial arena, found a weak spot in his heart of flesh: he succumbed to his lust for women. All his wisdom couldn't not alert him to his weakness & avoid impending doom. But it wasn't primarily a physical weakness, but a spiritual one, as his 700 wives & 300 porcupineserrconcubines, pricked & turned his heart to follow after other gods (1 Kings 11:1,2) "surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love."

    1 Kings 11: 9.10): "And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice, and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the LORD commanded." In his wisdom, Solomon even broke the first two Commandments of God, further disqualifying him from further ruler ship.

    The lesson we can learn from this is found in 1 Corinthians 10:12: "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." And this warning, Rob has emphasized also. If one so 'wise' as Solomon could succumb & fall into sin, how much more should we take care & learn to take God seriously & use His Gifts wisely.

    He gave heed to women and they seduced him to their gods . He fell into temptation. It can happen to mighty men .

    A real threat to any , we should take warning .

    Jesus said pray that you watch and pray that you enter not into temptation, he must have let his guard , or some times pride will bring a fall , how many could receive so much as Solomon and not feel a little better than others ? Easily

    And the Christian ministry teachers and ministers they are liberals and conservatives but this is not politics I was just reading first Timothy one through 15I guess what I'm trying to say is the word of God is his word if you have any problem with it don't take it up with me take it up with God
  • Patty Tozi on 1 Timothy 2:12
    In our last days God has warned us about in the writings of His words spoken thru the Bible. What have you done with your Life? All the outcome will hit you right in the face when you realize how many times God gave you Blessings and you threw them away on this sinful world of me -myself- and l will do what l want...when l want- and thru others telling you to do different. The evilness coming out to destroy God's gift to you. No one but you exposed your life. Just think how it will look in the Book of Life as it starts being read to you. You will be on your knees begging God for another chance. But how long did you have a chance to change your life on Earth. How many times have you helped others less fortunate. Didn't Jesus give of Himself to others never thinking of Himself. Didn't He bring the wisdom of His Father to others. He was always reaching out to the needs of others. No one knows how strong His Love and His Father's Love is until you walk into it. I did more then once. You can not describe it. The world knows nothing of this compassionate Love that can move a mountain. Not only does it come from the heart but the energy of His whole being. That is why no matter how bad you are He stands near waiting for His Last sheep to return. Knocking always until you do. The Light is so caring it will blind you at first. Love that comes from the inside out always looking inside the person. Never the outside. Pure Love!!!! Are you going to let that go when you are able to meet Him? Time is coming faster and faster. Get wise now! Beware now.. Start climbing the stairs to Heaven by doing good thru His Words. Don't let Satan drag you to the pit of Hell! Wise up now!!! Heed my warnings now!!! Another chance you will never get!!! Stay clear of the wickedness of this world...Repent..the time of His coming is very near!!! Ask for forgiveness...Save yourself in this hell bent world!!! I saw the sufferings that will become soon to all the Earth...Wake up before it comes:

  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:12
    I grew the most as a Christian, just reading the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Paying close attention to everything Jesus said or did, or revealed. How did he act?

    I read it real slow so I wouldn't skim by and miss something. I learned who he is; I saw how he reacted. He doesn't get explosive on people. He's patient, kind, righteous: he likes to tell stories; so do I.

    If no one would listen, he moved on to the next place. He won people's hearts by telling them of Gods heart. He has a deep love for kids.

    I went to the same church with a guy named, CARMAN. He's lived his life doing concerts at Churches, for kids and their families. He's a very kind, funny at times and loves to sing about Jesus. Check out some of his videos on YouTube. Type in YO KIDZ. My favorite song is The Champion.

    Happy Birthday :D

    May the Lord of all keep his Hand on You and bless you with Wisdom, Understanding and Knowlege of the mysteries of the Bible. May the Holy Spirit Keep you near to his heart. I pray the Lord would bless you with angels to keep you safe; and all of your family. May all of you find favor with the Lord. Ask for what you Need.

    Love Mishael

    Lidya, the Spirit of understanding be with you. Isaiah 46:3-4 ..... which (you) are borne (carried) by me (Christ) from the belly (birth), which (you) are carried (by Christ) from the womb (birth). (vs) 4 And even to your old age am I he; and even to hoar hairs will I (Christ) carry you; I (Christ) have made (created you), and I (Christ) will bear; even I (Christ) will carry; and deliver you. Jesus told his disciples that the Son of Man was sent to be a servant; isn't it nice that Jesus does everything for us; therefore, we can cease from our works and come into his rest.

    That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world

    But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ

    For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

    Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace

    And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby

    And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

    For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father

    Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

    In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord
  • Cobus on 1 Timothy 2:4
    The question of woman that teach, according to verse 12. Are woman that are teaching like Joyce Meyer and many more and those in prophetic ministry like Cyndy Jacobs, are thy all wrong and outside God's will?
  • Women Preachers - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Book of Joel chapter 3

    28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit UPON all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

    29 And also UPON the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

    This is a prophesy of these days; preceding the Caught Up of the church meeting Jesus in the clouds.

    Th Lord will use women and handmaidens too.

    Let's not try to tie God's hands from fulfilling prophesy. I've watched her ministry, and men attend those meetings too.

    At the Bema Judgment Seat of Christ, HE will hand out the rewards or loss of rewards to the believers. It's between Him and all those that preached and taught in his Name. We do not get to vote on that. Ever.

    Anyone doing anything for Jesus: their works will pass through the fire of burning up wood, hay, and stubble.

    Where is it in the Bible about the elections of Judges? I thought it said something about the election of judges to lead quiet and peaceful lives: which is covered in 2 Timothy 2:2, but does not state judges outright.

    I thought I had read something about the appointment of judges, am I wrong?

    John 6 verse 39

    And this is the Fathers will which hath sent me , that all of which he hath given me I should lose nothing , but should Raise it up again AT THE LAST DAY .

    Verse 40 And this is the will of him that sent me , and EVERYONE that seeth the Son and believeth on him , May have everlasting life and I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY .

    There is no other way but through JESUS , any other way is another gospel .

    On 1 TIMOTHY 2:4

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    By attending a man-made institution a few hours a week (Acts 7:48; 17:24), does not mean that a person can make a claim that they are followers of Christ and 'Born Again'. That is falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; Revelation 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9), and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life'.
  • CARL JUNG - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:5
    I like what you wrote.

    Evidently, some decide to divide the apostles, gospels, and old testament. By this they apply the long suffering and grace of God which is given to the poor of his people (Fatherless and widows) to the rest of those made just and righteous. We are purged through the remission of sins, given to us by the offering of Jesus Christ himself. Now, he is able to have compassion to those out of the way and afar off.

    Moreover, the simplicity of the gospel speaks of how one may have faith by believing God sent Jesus and that he came from God. Being freely justified we are forewarned to walk in the truth. We are ordained unto good works. The branch that withers may fall as did the Jews before, so that they were cut off by unbelief. It is not whether you are truly saved, but that you do just judgement, delight in mercy, and walk humbly with your God (Micah). And, the just shall live by his faith (Habbakuk). He will perform his promise to Abraham who believed and also perform the truth to Jacob(Micah). We are all one body and Jacob dwells in Samaria and Jerusalem.

    Let us not set a brother at naught and despise the long suffering of God. Also, let us take heed to Peter in his second book. There he mentioned Paul and his explanation of the gospel as the long suffering of God, which brings salvation, but many will be led away by the error of the wicked. God is able to make us pass under his rod and root out the rebels (Ezekiel). He is not willing that any should perish and he has sealed us with the spirit of promise. He is able to present us blameless before God, even his children that are cast out and whose flesh is eaten by the haughty man. The least shall be the greatest, so every man shall live by his faith.

    Good morning Carl, I like what you have written. It is the Spirit behind what is being written that also counts. Christians do need to prove the spirit of the lives and words of other Christians so that God in Jesus by his Holy Spirit can refine us as brethren and make us alike enough to be a light and witness to others by example. This website is a place of words, even quoting the Bible very well and to the letter has a weakness and that weakness is that we the reader and the professor of Peace in Jesus Christ can not see the peace, grace, joy and freedom in each other's lives as our neighbors see us.

  • Mary m white on 1 Timothy 2:4
    The pastor this morning said your spirit and soul go immediately to heaven. What I do not get is.... if spirits go immediately to hell or heaven, then why is there a judgement day? You would already be where you are. The white thrown judgement is after the 1000 year reign, so would God pull em out of hell to send em back to hell after judgement? and bring us from heaven to go back to heaven after the judgement? Please help me to understand what happens after death.
  • Grace39s Reply Re After-Life Judgements - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Hello Ms White,

    I don't know exactly what happens after a person dies, but while I've examined some NDE stories, I believe what God inspired in the Bible. Yours is an intelligent question. You clearly see that the act of being sent to either Heaven or Hell is in itself a judgement. So true because it's sound logic

    The word "judgement" in Revelation 20 is a direct word-for-word translation of the ancient Greek word for judgement. It's unfortunate for this chapter because the old Greek meaning must've been different. The important key when translating is to translate the meaning - so word-for-word is not always meaningful between different languages of different cultures at different times. (The KJV isn't a literal translation, btw).The meaning of 'judgement' has been lost because no translator has ever been trained, tested &certified by an independent board, the way NAATI translators need to be before translating modern languages for the U.N. So, these so-called translators really didn't know what a dead ancient language sounds like and they can't be 100% sure of it's grammar

    But the true meaning can only be "sentence". Just like modern courts, Judgement Day is Sentencing Day to send body&soul to the 2nd death in that Lake

    Revelation 20:11-15 >The "dead" are souls, in resurrected bodies, who haven't heard of our God and/or did but didn't want to know. It likely isn't believers too because Jesus gave us eternal life (John 3:16) &we do have a renewed spirit because we are born again (1 Peter 1:23), so we can't be called "dead". But we could also be present on this Sentence Dlay just to see it because some religious leaders& scholars now teach a newer idea, since the 19th or 20th C, that there is a separate judgement for believers regarding the quality of our works - that's based simply on 1 or 2 verses about a "seat" of Christ (Romans 14:10). That debate isn't relevant here, but I'll just squeeze in that the text also refers to a judgement of everyone, dead or living (Romans 14:9)
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I know its popular to say that at funerals and to comfort those mourning, but I don't believe it's true. They might be in a 'better place' however, just not heaven, because all must wait for judgment. Also, it says the dead will rise to meet Jesus in the air. I'm sure it will be spiritual bodies, not physical ones that have rotted. It wouldn't make sense otherwise if people went straight to heaven to then go back to earth to an old body just to raise up and meet Jesus in the clouds, just for the ceremony of it. So, both scripture and logic refute that idea. Most people believe this because of Jesus telling the other guy on the cross that he would be in paradise. First, Jesus can pick whomever he wants to have special treatment- it doesn't automatically mean 100% of others will follow suit and ignore the other scripture. Secondly, paradise may not necessarily mean heaven. Paradise could be an intermediary place of rest or waiting. Just some thoughts. No one knows 100% until it happens. We just have scripture and logic.
  • Carleton - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I have heard a thought that at least warms my heart when thinking about the time period after death and before the Marriage Supper.

    Some Christian cultures as folks are coming to a wedding have an meal or gathering perhaps the evening before. Because of long distance traveling the hour of the gathering is somewhat flexible to allow as many guest as possible to arrive. The guest arrive and mingle together in the fellowship of the Saints and likely speak of in a calm happiness the events that are so soon to take place while waiting on more guests to arrive.
  • What to expect during the Rapture for Believers who are ready - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Briefly, if we have not been Caught Up in the clouds to meet Jesus yet:



    Our bodies or our ashes, remain in the ground.

    Our spirit and soul ascend to heaven to await "the Rapture", when our bodies will ascend into the clouds to be transformed into our eternal bodies that will never get sick or die. If our earthly bodies were not complete or marred in some way: our new bodies will be perfect; body , soul, spirit.

    All souls are Mine, says God in scripture.

    Once the dead in Christ are rejoined; then those alive on earth will ascend next To meet Jesus and everyone else in the clouds.

    Be watching for Jesus every day.
