  • The Five Fold Ministry and Jesus39s Resurrection Morning - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Calm down. Jesus was speaking to his disciple who had been a fisherman by occupation.

    Jesus invited him to be shown how to "fish" for peoples souls.

    The word Apostle means, one who has seen the person of Jesus Christ; the Son of Man.

    The office of an Apostle, works as touching the 5-fold Ministry of: Apostle, prophet, teacher, pastor, evangelist. Also, someone once said to me that 'pastor' is positioned on the ring finger because it involves full time shepherding of Jesus's sheep and baby lambs.

    If you open your hand: the thumb is the apostle. Using the thumb it can reach out and touch each of the other 4 fingers.

    The Apostle can minister in any of the other offices.

    My take: Jesus would like us to be versatile by nature. He had to do it this way because someone is always going to bark, "That's Not My Job!."

    We are all called to follow Jesus and DO the work of an evangelist.

    Personally: I don't have cable and I watch very little television. My computer is 1 year old and hasn't been used yet. I have an unproven theory that if we watch too much tv, our rears rebel and move around to the front. :D

    I'm just saying we have time to read the Bible. It goes much faster if you'll buy a Strongs concordance; a commentary; maybe a dictionary. How's your Bible appetite?

    I love Jesus! First time I saw that he evaded Satan all over the place and Satan could only focus on murdering the Son of God! Satan forgot all about Genesis 3:14-15 prophesy. When that spear cut into Jesus's side, He had already died. Satan didn't get to cheer :( Then when Jesus came walking out of the tomb: He bruised Satans head (I hope he knocked him out) and Jesus took the Keys and went to hell, preached salvation, opened the cells and led everybody in there out, in the streets and into Paradise. He then met up with both Marys because they were over at the Empty Tomb.

    This is the Mighty Son of God that we worship! He is worthy to be praised & adored.

    The words "trinity" and "triune" are NOT in the Bible.

    You can type them in the Search Box and neither word will come up.

    You can type in GODHEAD and it will fetch all Godhead scriptures.

    I've written on this often. Drop down to near bottom; to the history pages 1-100 and explore past days of comments made.

    Very interesting reading.
  • Mishael on who identified Jesus as the Son of God - in Reply on John 1:49
    We can't really know who said it first because of the time issue between the 2 Chapters:

    Matthew 16:16. Peter

    John 1:49. Nathaniel

    I think you made a good catch. The only problem is that Nathanel was not one of the 12 Disciples.

    Comments anyone else?
  • Mixed Marriages - in Reply on Proverbs 11:26
    God doesn't say anything about interracial marriage. Many have occurred in the Bible ie Moses and Abraham.

    He does caution a Christian marrying an unbeliever. The unbeliever might forbid the Christian from going to church or reading the Bible.

    You can google 'interracial Marriage Bible' and see what you see. I did.

    Interculturaly it's difficult. Arguments ensue over religion, culture, baptism of children; things like that.

    That's why a couple should DATE for at least a YEAR. Most people can't maintain being on their best behavior for that long.

  • Wanda Wheat - in Reply on Proverbs 11:26
    My nephew is trying to say that it is no where in the Bible about dating outside your race. Our family is not racist nor are we against the African Americans. We are trying to get him to understand that it is in the Bible and he argues that the Old Testament doesn't count. Can you please help me with this?
  • Patty Tozi on 1 Maccabees 4
    Hold on to me my Father as l fight for others that the enemy has taken in his grips. Help the ones l take care of. I am strong in the Light of your Love. Protect me as l take one day at a time knowing God is leading me as He did His Son. God is your answer in these days. Go to Him on your knees. Know He will answer your needs no matter what it looks like now. Keep praying. Keep going to His words in His writings. His word is truth. Nothing but truth. He will never forsake you. Never!!!
  • Meredith - in Reply on Job 42
    God is absolutely never morally deficient. Job was already walking in communion with God prior to his trials because God told Satan "behold my servant Job" in the first chapter. God allowed the afflictions not to punish Job for sin but to strengthen his faith for His glory. And although the old testament predates Christ's death on the cross, the Bible says the lamb of God (Jesus) was slain from the foundation of the world. Meaning that man's ultimate salvation through the blood of Christ was always God's plan, even before He created man. If God always intended to take on flesh and be made a sacrifice for His children's souls then He certainly never viewed us as objects but rather as something so cherished He was willing to die to preserve us. Praise the Lord for his infinite love and mercy for sinners like us!

    Wanda,

    I would love to help.

    Before I reference the laws within the Old Testament may I sincerely inquire why you ask this question?

    Thanks

  • Alfonso on John 1:49
    I was always under the impression that Peter was the first to believe Jesus was the Messiah/Son of God. (Matthew 16:16). Who is Nathanael and was he the first person to acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God/King of Israel? Thank you.

  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 51:12
    Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation. Salvation he had known, and had known it as the Lord's own; he had also felt the joy which arises from being saved in the Lord, but he had lost it for a while, and therefore he longed for its restoration. None but God can give back this joy; he can do it; we may ask it; he will do it for his own glory and our benefit. This joy comes not first, but follows pardon and purity: in such order it is safe, in any other it is vain presumption or idiotic delirium. And uphold me with thy free Spirit. Conscious of weakness, mindful of having so lately fallen, he seeks to be kept on his feet by power superior to his own. That royal Spirit, whose holiness is true dignity, is able to make us walk as kings and priests, in all the uprightness of holiness; and he will do so if we seek his gracious upholding. Such influences will not enslave but emancipate us; for holiness is liberty, and the Holy Spirit is a free Spirit. In the roughest and most treacherous ways we are safe with such a Keeper; in the best paths we stumble if left to ourselves. The praying for joy and upholding go well together; it is all over with joy if the foot is not kept; and, on the other hand, joy is a very upholding thing, and greatly aids holiness; meanwhile, the free, noble, royal Spirit is at the bottom of both.

    I like this proverb, it seems to apply to all parts of life: Proverbs 11:1

    A false balance is an abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.

  • Hopeful Christian - in Reply on Romans 13:4
    God gave Hitler his power (Saul wasn't merciful either, but he was made King of Israel by God himself), therefore, if your ruler is bad, you have to obey him, and not kill him not damage his government via terrorism or other methods.

    Even the antichrist need God's approval in order to obtain power.
  • A Bible believer on Matthew 28
    Verse 19. This is where most christians trip up. It didnt say NAMES it said name. So therefore the Trinity is a heretical idea. And the Bible warns us.
  • A Bible believer - in Reply on Matthew 28
    I dont think so... It is just a metaphor. It dosent mean fisher of the LAW. It means evangelists.

    It means to be a evangelist preachers and converters.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    While we are called to be followers of Christ, We will find that the world does not except this value of faith toward God.Is it possible to have joy and happiness and be a christian in the strictest sense?I believe that God wants all people to experience the joy found in life and the love we share with one another.It has been my experience that when we live outside the faith, time of temptation and sorrow manifest itself, and will dominate and move us further away from His love!Are we looking somewhere else for happiness or do we worry about things we have no control over!When we examine Christs life, we will see a love that passes understanding!His love for his Father, and the joy he experienced when He did the will of His Father, even the power to heal Gods children!We to can experience this same love when we worship the savior!I personally would find no greater joy than to heal someone or give someone hope.Mans nature is contrary to God, and is evil from the beginning. This is why we need to abide in Christ, being led by His Holy Spirit. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

    Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all LIARS shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    Why all the questions about demons?

    If you are wanting to be set free from demonic capture, let someone know.

    Ephesians 6:21

    Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

    At the 2nd Advent of Jesus, the Lord will deal mercilessly with satans network of evil, and finally Satan too.

  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 15:51
    Paul speaks to the scoffers starting in verse 35 of 1 Corinthians 15 to explain the nature of those resurrected.

    In Luke 24:36 Jesus, resurrected, appears to the disciples bodily. He then encourages them to examine him and see that he has flesh and bones. Then he ate some food. Though he was glorified, yet he retained his human nature.

    Likewise in John 20 and 21 the disciples have encounters with Jesus physically.

    We can trust that we will be made like him (Romans 8:29).
  • Melchizedek - in Reply on Hebrews 7
    This what the Commentary writes:

    7:11 The apostle now demonstrates that the Levitical priesthood must yield to the priesthood of Christ, because Melchizedek , after whose order he is a priest, Is opposed to Aaron, #Hebrews 7:11 |- 14. Hath no end of life, #Hebrews 7:15 |- 19, but remaineth a priest continually. If now perfection were by the Levitical priesthood - If this perfectly answered all God's designs and man's wants For under it the people received the law - Whence some might infer, that perfection was by that priesthood. What farther need was there, that another priest - Of a new order, should be set up? From this single consideration it is plain, that both the priesthood and the law, which were inseparably connected, were now to give way to a better priesthood and more excellent dispensation.

    Comment:There are many scriptures on Melchizedek. His Priesthood was superior to the Aaronic Priesthood.

    1 Thessalonians Chapter 4

    14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which SLEEP in Jesus will God bring with him.

    15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are ASLEEP

    16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the DEAD IN CHRIST shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and REMAIN shall be caught up together WITH THEM in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    Comment: It doesn't matter if she was cremated, or her body was in a coffin: she will rise up to Jesus in the clouds where her body will be restored to soul and spirit; joined into her eternal transformed body that will never corrupt.

    This will happen instantly for billions of passed on believers. In the blink of an eye.

    Then WE are next.

    You will see her again and we will know and recognize each other each other.

    God, who spoke the world into existence, will do this wonderful thing for all believers. No more tears: He will wipe away all tears. And then the joy is going to spill over.

    Wonder and worship for Jesus.

    Let's start now, Amen.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Brenda,

    Matthew 6:34 says to take no thought about tomorrow. There is a word used throughout the New Testament that has to do with our minds being distracted. It is the word MERIMNAO, and it has to do with the occupation of the attention of our minds. It can be anything, our jobs, our family, hobbies, or anything in our daily lives that keep our minds occupied and away from the things of the Lord.

    Jesus says don't even worry about it. Don't worry about tomorrow. Let tomorrow take care of itself. Where is our focus right now? And then He says "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

    What this is basically telling us is that we have enough to be concerned with today, the normal ordinary stresses of life. We're not to be concerned about tomorrow. Only the Lord knows what will come tomorrow, so why should we be worried about it. Besides, worrying about tomorrow does us no good at all. We are to place our complete trust in Christ, and trust that He will work out those future things that we are incapable of knowing. So, sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof simple means to just focus on the hardships of the present day and trust that Christ will not only work those things out but also the things of tomorrow.
