  • Betty Byrnes on Habakkuk 3
    Thank you for giving me this opportunity. I'm a little puzzled with chapter 3, verse 19, where it mentions "and HE will make me to walk in my high places." How exactly is this interpreted?
  • Jesse - in Reply
    Edwin,

    Every year on the Day of Atonement, the high priest would enter into the Holy of Holies. He was the only one allowed to enter in. He would go in and sprinkle blood on the mercy seat. And that would be for the purpose of making atonement for his sin and also for others. This did not remove their sin. It was only a covering.

    If you read through Hebrews Chapter 9, it talks about the superiority of the heavenly sanctuary and about Jesus now being our high priest.

    Hebrews 9:1-10 talks about the worldly sanctuary. The sanctuary of Christ is in Verse 11, and we see the substance in verses 11 and 12. Verse 12 says, Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, (and that would be the holy of holies), just like the high priest, having obtained eternal redemption for us, once. And the blood He brought was His own. And He offered it once on behalf of all of us!

    In Hebrews 9:13-14, the writer is making a comparison that the blood of bulls and goats is just a fleshly thing.



    In the human, and flesh stands for human, but in the human, if you performed everything that God said under His law, then in the human you would be marked as fulfilling your duty. But your conscience isn't cleansed.



    So the old sanctuary and its sacrifice did not purge or purify anyone. In the Old Testament, the blood of animals only covered sin. With Christ, everything is removed.

    Dear Julie, I will pray for Bryan tonight.

    Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, Your Son, on behalf of Bryan. Please bring healing to his airways so that he will no longer have shortness of breath or coughing. Strengthen Bryan so that he will overcome this weakness in his body. Clear up the congestion in his lungs and airway and bring him lasting relief from headaches. Father, these symptoms are tiring on his body. Give him restful sleep and have his doctor correctly treat him by first discovering why Bryan has these symptoms and then choosing a course of treatment that really helps these health problems to be resolved. Lord, we know that all healing truly comes from You, so we thank you for what You are doing in Bryan right now. Amen.

  • Trusting in the Church that Jesus Planted and Oversees Now - in Reply
    This is a time to be part of a Church, who might be able to help you shelter these children; possibly a member might have an empty house to lend or rent out. But first you need to attend and Join a church. They need to know you, as much as you need to trust them. The Lord founded The Church before He went to the Cross. He meant it to be in place for those who follow HIM.

    As a widow, you surely have God's attention and protection. You need to trust God, trust in His guidance and favor. Don't be fearful to ask for and receive guidance from your Church. You need to allow them to help you. Right now you are carrying all this yourself.

    Look for a Christian, faith based Church. Google their beliefs; activities. Tenets of Faith. Maybe a Church with a School. Then meet with them. "As a widow", you have Gods Favor.

    Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for my precious children. Give me wisdom Lord as I seek in Your strength to raise them to know the truth of Your Word.

    Help me never to hold my children too tightly to myself or develop an attitude of parental selfishness, but help me to equip them to become men and women of God who develop an attitude of responsibility, wisdom and faithfulness to You, as they develop and grow older and take up their own positions in the world.

    Lord, I commit my children into Your keeping. I love them so dearly, yet I know that Your love for each of my children far exceeds the love that I could have. Keep them I pray, under the shadow of Your protective wings. May the Holy Spirit lead them and guide them into all truth, and may they grow in grace and mature in the faith of Christ Jesus.

    Thank you dear Jesus for intervening on behalf of this Grandmother who loves deeply. Enable us to trust your Church to Undergird our faith that we are doing the right thing. I'm 71. We don't know how long we will live. Put plans in place now. Better the Church to help, than the State. My faith goes with you beloved woman of God.

    Most people misinterpret 1 Corinthians 15 whereby leads them to just that,,, misinterpreting scripture, false teaching,,,and if they misinterpret this they are highly likely to peat, and repeat.

    The correct interpretation of 1 Corinthians 15:20 is, Jesus Christ has been raised from dead persons, .. the dead...

    The firstfruit, is the beginning of a sacrifice, [the first fruit, the beginning] for those who have fallen asleep, those who died already.

    The beginning of the price paid for Salvation for all who have died past, present, and future.

    Where do you think Jesus went when He died? He went to Tartarus, prison to teach the Gospel to those who had not known Him, and proclaimed his victory whereby some were saved.

    Jesus became the firstfruit for all who slept(died and gone to Heaven or prison) no matter who was there or not.

    Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

    But the fearful,.... Not the timorous sheep and lambs of Christ, the dear children of God, who are sometimes of a fearful heart, on account of sin, temptation, and unbelief; but such who are of cowardly spirits, and are not valiant for the truth, BUT who, through fear of men, either make no profession of Christ and his Gospel, or having made it, drop it, lest they should be exposed to tribulation and persecution; these are they that are afraid of the beast, and live in servile bondage to him.

    And unbelieving; meaning not merely atheists, who do not believe there is a God, or deists only, that do not believe in Christ; but such who profess his name, and are called by it, and yet do not truly believe in him, nor embrace his Gospel and the truths of it, but believe a lie; these are condemned already, and on them the wrath of God abides, and they will be damned at last; though it may have a regard to such also who are infidels as to the second coming of Christ to judgment, and who are scoffers and mockers at it:

    and the abominable: every sinful man is so in the sight of God; but here it denotes such who are the worst of sinners, given up to sinning; who are abominable, and to every good work reprobate; who are addicted to the worst of crimes, as were the Sodomites and others; the Ethiopic version renders it, "who pollute themselves" with unnatural lusts. The Syriac and Arabic versions express it by two words, "sinners and polluted", filthy sinners; the character well agrees with Babylon, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth, and to all that adhere to her, and join with her in her abominable idolatries.

    And murderers; of the saints, and prophets, and martyrs of Jesus, with whose blood Babylon, or the whore of Rome, has made herself drunk, and in whom it will be

    Heavenly Father thank you for your son Jesus! I'm not sure what "our Lord's Eden is so if it is not biblical be with this person and teach them about the true Jesus! If it is, however, I ask Lord that you be with them in their journey and get them home safely. Let them make so much they will have savings for next month and rest a few days if needed. Keep their babies safe and don't let them destroy the house out of fear or boredom like some animals do when left home like my dog. haha.. Heavenly Father I ask that you keep everyone safe and their heart in wanting for you daily. In Jesus precious name, I pray, Amen!!

    Pt 1.

    Hello Chris. Sorry for my delayed answer but I just managed to get back to you.

    a. Paul's letter to Galatians is not addressed to unbelievers but to the church, the saved saints of Galatia. What happened there? Some christians from other places who were Jews came to Galatia and tought people there that they can not be saved by the grace of Jesus only, but through Moses' law as well. Those people that were drifted towards such teaching were not unbelievers but were members of the local church, saved people that is. In verse 5:4 Paul tells them "Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.". So one who is saved if he changes course and seeks salvation through works (Mosaic Law) then he looses God's grace, which grace in this case means salvation. Why? Because He seeks ijustification through works and not Jesus' Blood. As you write the greek word "ekpipto" is used, translated as "fallen", which is accurate enough

    b. Paul's letter to Hebrews is also addressed to believers. What Paul says is that if somebody has a root of bitterness in his heart, and does nothing about it, and keeps being in an unforgivable situation, then he lacks in God's grace. Why? Because he doesn't repent and stays in his sin. The greek "hystero" is translated as "fail" which is not the same but doesn't make any significant difference. Hystero means "lack in", "left behnd", the word Hysterisis in Physics comes from this word. What Paul means is that if a believer stays in a state that he doesn't want to repent or doesn't make any efford to correct his sin, then God's grace is not upon him. Paul uses Esau as an example for somebody who doesn't repent for his sin but still wants to get the blessing, and that can not be possible. The same happens for fornicators and profane persons. Pay attention Paul doesn't talk to unbelievers, there is no point for that, those have to come to faith to be saved. He talks to believers

    Pt 2. Chris

    c. It is not God who punishes people to make them change course and come back. In the story of the prodigal son, the father didn't go after his son to bring him back. It was the hard times that the son lived through, outside his father's protection, that made him decide to go back. Once a person is outside God's protection, satan is incharge. Paul says to Corinthians about that believer who was living wth his father's wife. 1 Cor 5:5 "To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus." How come satan has the authority to destruct a believer? Because he lives in an unforgivable sin. Will that person eventually repent and return? Maybe yes, maybe no. In our lives we have seen many cases that prodigal sons never come back, and this is a reality. Judas never came back, Demas never came back, neither did Ananias and Sapphira did.

    Often the parable of the shepherd and the lost sheep is used to justify the belief of a secured salvation, but in this case the sheep got lost, was confused, lost his vision and his way, so Jesus looked for it and brought it back. But in the parable of the prodigal son, the son didn't loose his way, wasn't confused, wasn't lost somehow, but he freely decided to go away from his house and live his sinful life spending his father's fortune. In this case father never went after him but waited for his son in the house, if he finally did come back.

    d. What do you mean with "an untimely death will follow if warnings are not heeded". Doesn't this mean that he died in his sin and was eventually lost? Weren't those Jews that disobeyed Mose's Law went to hell, like all those that didn't make it in the promised land because they believed in the spies' stories? And so many other examples in OT.

    Pt. 3.

    Chris

    Well it really gets long, I hope I don't tire you.

    Please read Ezekiel 18:24. "But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die." Since one's righteousness will not be mentioned, and he will die in his sin, what should I therefore conclude? That he is going to hell, isn't it so?

    Hebrews 10:26-27 "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries."

    In the above Paul doesn't talk about unbelievers, for those salvation is always available even if they once rejected it. Paul talks about people who were once in faith but later lost their faith and believed that Jesus' sacrifice and Blood were nothing really.

    So brother my belief is that if ones turns away from God, and despite God's efforts to make him repent, he dies in his sin then he will not enter Heaven but hell.

    Now I want to ask you a question. We agree that if somebody seeks salvation not only through Jesus' sacrifice, but through works, then he is not granted salvation. So what do you make of those Jews that believed to Jesus but still obeyed the Law of Moses. James said to Paul in Acts 21:20 "And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law:". Those thousands of Jews were saved, weren't they? But how come since they were zealous of the law?

    I don't mean to be offensive even if sometimes it seems so. If we don't agree it is OK, we actually know what we both believe but we try to get to a possible agreement

    Rick,

    It is the same word used in both places, not the English word fearful because it says fearful in both places, but the Greek word DEILOS is used in both places. This word means cowardly, not fearful like PHOBOS.

    In Mark 4:40, can you imagine such a big storm like that and all He says is "Stop and be quiet!" Everything is like nothing happened!



    So Jesus asks them two questions. First, why are ye so fearful?



    Now if it was me, if I understood from the English what fearful means, I would be like "Fearful? You got to be kidding! We were in the biggest storm of our life. What do you mean fearful?"

    Jesus was saying, why were you cowards? How is it that you have no faith? That is not a challenge. He is saying take inventory. Why don't you have faith?

    It says they feared exceedingly. They had no courage to face the storm, and rightly so. No human being would have the courage to face the storm. And he asked them, why don't you have faith?



    You see, faith is produced by the Holy Spirit. Jesus continually put them in circumstances that were beyond their human means and their human ability.



    That is true for every Christian. The bible says that the Lord directs the steps of every righteous person.



    Every storm, every trial, and every tribulation, is designed by God. And for the Christian, the design will be that this will be too much for you, because only God can do it!

    Hi Sheyibrown.

    Scripture agrees with what Luke has spoken.

    For one the law wasn't given to Gentiles it was given to Israel. I wasn't given to JUSTIFY anyone for salvation.

    Galatians 5:4. "Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; YE ARE FALLEN FROM GRACE."

    Here's a few scriptures to study:

    Please don't just read these Scriptures, Study them!! These are very important Scriptures that is ignored by some. Understanding these scriptures can help keep one from being deceived atleast in this area anyway.

    Galatians 3:1-29.

    Galatians Ch 4 and 5.

    2 Corinthians 3:6-14.

    Also study.

    Hebrews 8:1-13 and

    Hebrews 9:1-28.

    It's interesting what you will find in Hebrews when ministering the first covenant. It WASN'T about just being obedient to the 10 commandments, There were services that had to be performed to extreme precision.

    There was the high priest that ministered THOSE services under THAT covenant in a WORLDLY sanctuary. The services had to be rendered perfectly but they couldn't make you perfect. They had no effect on the heart of man. Men heart is incurably wicked. The new covenant where Christ is the High priest He came to give you a new Heart and the REST that the old covenant couldn't give. Because no one could keep or be justified by the old covenant.

    Why is it that those who desire to add their means of justifying themselves they choose what they think is the easiest to do and not realize in their lusty heart they break the commandments.

    James 2:10.

    Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

    But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:27-28.

    Study those chapters.

    God bless.

  • CYCLES OF DISCIPLINE ONGOING NOW__Leviticus 26 - in Reply
    I graduated High School in 1969. I was drafted for Vietnam, 1969. I didn't have to go. Thank the Lord! I was in the center of the Peace/Love/Pot generation.

    First came the Rock n Roll Generation

    Next came the Disco Generation.

    After that, The Gay Generation.

    Bring this into perspective for us: Leviticus teaches on 5 CYCLES of disobedience and judgment by God. Deuteronomy has Cycles too.

    We entered the Cycle Judgments when we Banned the Bible from Schools. We banned the Flag and praying the pledge of Allegiance. Couldn't speak Gods Name.

    1974, abortion legalized. 20 years later college tuitions skyrocketed. 1/3 students had been aborted, so less students; more tuition costs.

    The churches quit praying and became worldly in order to attract enough money to build MegaChurches. Put it, and everything on TV.

    We may think God is sleeping through this, but he isn't. (Oops)

    When our Government decided to withdraw hundreds of years of being supportive to Israel; God withdrew our Blessing as a NATION.

    We're on our own now. If we don't or can't turn back to God; we will experience cycles of DISCIPLINE. And then, Judgement.

    We're there.

    The "dog and pony" show for our Government, is our Wake Up call. We are oblivious. Nobody votes on platforms anymore. It's about what YouTube, Facebook and Twitter like. No platforms; strictly a popularity contest now. God is letting us see this unfolding.

    We are rolling into the End of Times. Luke 21 and Matthew 24. All of this WORLD WIDE weather, Fire, Flood, Drought, government breakdown (etc) are the call:
