    Hello Walter. We know that the KJV translation appeared in the 17th Century, when many words had a different meaning to what we know today, then we can appreciate the use of the word "corn". Though we presently understand 'corn' to refer to a highly bred grain developed from maize, in those days the English used the general word, 'corn' to represent barley, wheat, rye, oats, etc. In fact, it came from the old Nordic word 'korn', which meant 'grain'.

    So when we see Jesus in Luke 6:1, going through the corn fields, plucking the ears of corn & rubbing them in His Hands, it certainly wasn't the corn of today, but likely a grain, such as barley, that could be rubbed together to separate the chaff from the grain. Or, the example of John 12:24, "Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground & die", we can understand it as a grain of wheat, giving us another use of the word 'corn'.

    Hello Deloras. Not much is given in the Bible (NT) on that subject. Even though 1 Corinthians 14:35 states that "it is a shame for women to speak in the church", yet we see in Acts 1:14, "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."

    This was the first instance of the operation of the new Church of Jesus Christ, when all the disciples, Jesus' brothers & the women met in Jerusalem in the Upper Room. They had just witnessed the transfiguration & ascension of their Lord & one can only imagine how their hearts & spirits must have been filled with praise & joy which expressed itself in prayer & praise. Yes, I see that the women also prayed, joining the others present there. Now the Apostle Paul gives another teaching on the covering of heads whilst praying (1 Corinthians chapter 11), but that's another aspect that has caused much division.

    Read my reply to Spencer. I was in Tulsa the day , that day came and Went. Real quiet.

    The EXODUS in the Bible shows us that the Lord does react to grumbling, feet dragging and unbelief. Many of them wanted to return to Egypt (sin). They had it better there. God allowed the older generation to pass away, naturally, from age and unbelief, and grumbling. All the times I read that story I feel the pain of our Fathers heart, as each one died; never knowing the victory that lay ahead. He planted seed in Joshua's heart and spirit; and Caleb. Let Us feel the Fathers heart in our own generation? Pray for God to build strength and faith__within us__His servants. We are not our own. We were bought with a PRICE. Jesus on the Cross dying, for our sins. Delivering to those who believeHis Authority and Victory over Satan (an outlaw spirit) a fired Archangel. Busted to being covered in worms. Isaiah 14.

    And all of Nimrods kingdom, principalities, powers, Babylon, Chaldeans (occult origins) and Book of Enoch: descendant of CAIN. The Enoch that walked with GOD and was taken to Heaven: is the descendant of SETH. Seth, whom the holy bloodline of Jesus, flowed. Let's remember and teachthere were TWO ENOCHS. Often. Many people are confused. Forget books. Read Bible Geneologies.

    People don't read the BEGATS. Too boring. However, the begats reveal lies and untruths.

    Where would we be if Mary had waken, saw Gabriel the Messenger.an decided it was a too garlicky roasted goat she ate at dinner? See my point? What if Paul thought he was drunk from too much sun that day?

    Look how long it took for someone to preach, there are in fact, recorded; TWO ENOCHS. May we shout it from the rooftops.

    Satan's web of lies has been struck with a stick and tossed to the ditch.

    My heart is overflowing with huge joy!! One brick less for Satan to hide behind.

    Somebody say hallelujah!!!

  • Date Setting the END OF DAYS. - in Reply
    I totally believe what you say. I was living in Tulsa Oklahoma in 1988. More Christians than you can believe. It was a time of massive street ministry. Oral Roberts college town!

    The date came and went. I truly believe God is NOT going to allow people to predict dates or events; or Him.

    The date came and went. We'll do better to evangelize folks and quit using date setting to motivate us. We should believe and do what the Bible says. Beware of false teaching, date setting. False prophets.

    TWO PREACHERS is a YouTube channel that accepts disaster videos from all over this globe. It shows us that just because our neighborhoods aren't affected Yet; doesn't mean it won't be. God is busy motivating people! Repent and receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. Pray always.

    We know what to be doing NOW. Two Preachers shows remote disaster torn places, preaches the gospel and gives out free Bibles to people who are saved and baptized.

    There is even a video of a mega Church in America; the preacher said: the Ten Commandments are not needed anymore! All we have to do is obey loving one another?

    Folks our only defense is to know what the Bible really teaches. Matthew 5, Jesus reaffirms Old Testament laws still in force. And the 2 new Commandments Jesus gave.

    Do we see Jesus's Love calming American streets and Neighborhoods? Do Christians drive their cars obeying speed limits, basic courtesy, etc. Our driving skills need to be saved. If the kids go downtown to protest, drink & throw rocks; QUIT giving them money or cars to go downtown!

    Whoever has the money, controls the household.

    Our kids have to learn to survive a hostile world, so they can Move Out after high school. Quit babying them. What DOES the Bible teach in the Book of Proverbs? Do that, teach that. That is How we love them. Not bail money; Gods Love.

    Now go search 'Two Preachers' on YouTube. The earth is hemorrhaging all over. Jesus gave the signs in Matthew 24; Luke 21.

    When the lord comes back He will restore those in Judah and Jerusalem, that are left , only a remnant will survive the horrific times ahead for that region known as Israel , God will root out the wicked and save his people and fight all those armies that will surround Jerusalem at that time . As of Days old . What a time that will be .

    I can't quote the verses but I know the story .

    There is hope ahead indeed , for we are not appointed to wrath . Praise God !

    Is it Biblical that women can Pray in prayer meetings with men present ?

    Hello Grace. Your sensitivity to correctly quoting from the Scriptures is so commendable & very much appreciated. I feel sure that the Lord will direct that sister in Christ to view your correction or even give her clarification on the verse in question.

    In fact, when we consider the verse, if we are His Temple, then wherever believers gather together whether formally in a Church building or in a home, the House of the Lord must vitally exist right there. The early Christians regularly met in homes or in courtyards therein - to them they were gathered in God's House, a place set apart to worship together. Be blessed for your heartfelt attention to your concern.

    Hi Carl.

    Here's a day on our time clock.

    Genesis 1:5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.

    ( AND THE EVENING AND THE MORNING WERE THE FIRST DAY.)

    24 hours to us.

    Amen Brother Ronald.

    John 1:4-9. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

    And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

    There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

    The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

    He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

    That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

    Hi Lojay.

    Perhaps someone can shed more light on this.

    I believe this is what can only be done by the Holyspirit working in you.

    This is not a commandment our flesh can accomplish.

    Matthew 5:44-48. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

    And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

    Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    God bless.

    Hi. TP.

    I believe the flesh is on the bones, but the spirit is not in them yet.

    Ezekiel 37:8-14. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

    Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

    So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

    Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

    Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

    And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

    And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

    And these preceding verses haven't happened yet.

    Ezekiel 3715:28.

    God bless.

    Ps it also proves there are no space aliens, but I find it most likely the anti christ will play on people's ignorance .

    Is the devil capable to do that ?

    It says he can bring down fire out of the sky , and do all manners of deception, but only the lost fall for it .

    It pays to study the bible .

    Once you are convinced it's the word of God no one can take that from you . Even seeing space aliens , because they are not real .

    Wow Divine, you have gone through a lot. Surely God must be with you. Try to stay strong, and stay in the word and not go either to the right or left. You are correct like Jesus you had to endure the hardships of friends turning away from you. You have an amazing testimony and can't wait to hear all about it when we get through the pearly gates. God bless you.

    Can we grieve the Holyspirit? If so what causes this, Isn't it Mans free will by obeying the opposition?

    Just a thought.

    Hi Lojay, Here is what the bible says [44] But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; ... [46] For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?
  • Walter John Klein JR
    The KJV is claimed to be the inerrant word of God and superior to all other versions. I am curious as to why the KJV notes "corn" as a staple grain in biblical times when it did not exist in that part of the world until after Columbus discovered the Americas. Other versions of the bible use the term "grain" as opposed to "corn", which would be more accurate. Considering this; How can the KJV claim to be the inerrant version?
  • Alex Karlins on Psalms 1
    It occurs to me, that God, is the supreme leader of the Universe. He created the Earth, and will send an angel, or possibly Jesus Christ, his son, to gather up all of the lost souls at the end of the world's existence. All of the true believers will go to heaven, if their sins are forgivable.
  • Jesse - in Reply on John 14
    Dee,

    I would like to echo what Brother Chris has shared. As he has shared, that word mansion is the Greek word that means dwelling place. Some believe that we will each get our own mansion in heaven someday, but unfortunately the word MONE in Greek never refers to "mansions" as we know a mansion to be. They are dwelling places.

    But here is something that is interesting. The word MONE is only found in two places in John Chapter 14. Verse 2 and verse 23 are the only two places that the word is found. In verse 23, it is sort of like a bookend. Jesus starts out be saying, "In my Father's house are many dwelling places."

    Now in verse 23, Jesus answered and said if a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our (abode/MONE) with him. Again, same word, MONE. So where's the dwelling place? It's right here. It's me, you, and every other believer who has Christ dwelling in them. We are the dwelling places. Jesus says we will come and make our abode with him.

    Now in verse 2, it makes it sound like Jesus is doing that in heaven. But He has to go in order to come back. He can't send the Holy Spirit until He leaves. He's getting ready to prepare a place for us. But right now, we are the many mansions, or many dwelling places spoken of in John 14:2.

    Precious friend, Good Question About God's Great Handiwork!:

    Day 1: light divided from darkness Genesis 1:3-5

    Day 3: earth to bring forth vegetation Genesis 1:9-13

    Day 4: lights in heaven; a greater light {sun?} to rule the day

    and a lesser light {moon?} to rule the night Genesis 1:14-19

    Bible answer: "Yes," God Created the vegetation Before the sun!

    Please Be Richly Encouraged, Enlightened, Exhorted, and Edified!

    ( 2 Timothy 2:15; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 1:3-9; Ephesians 3:9 = Grace/Mystery fellowship {Romans - Philemon}, God's 'Light' For ALL "to SEE," today,?)

    The earth was first and in darkness verse 2 , then verse 3 God said let there be light .

    Most people do not know the earth was in existence before even the stars . Therefore the earth is the centre of creation and not apart of a vast universe if you believe Genesis .
  • Ronald L Whittemore - in Reply
    Judge,

    Day and night, light and darkness have other meanings other than we think of in this physical world. John 1:4-5 Romans 13:12. In day three, grass, herbs, fruit trees came forth growing and full of life in preparation of the other life that was to come for to be food. God is light as we see in Revelation 21:23-25 and Revelation 22:5 when all is new there will be no night, no moon, or sun, the glory of God will be the lighten and Jesus will be the light.

    The sun and moon and the stars were placed in the firmament (heaven) on day four after the plants on this earth were thriving in day three so, what we hear things cannot grow without the sun or the earth would be a ball of ice, leave out the glory of God and His only begotten Son, the light that darkness/unbelievers comprehend not.

    God bless,

  • Chris Prophecy from the true God will always come to pass verbatim, prophecy from false prophets never does Jeremiah 23:21+22 so called prophecy from false prophets inspired by devil spirits will never come to pass verbatim. In 2 Kings 6 starting at verse 25 there was a great famine in samaria that in verse 31 the king blamed the man of God and wanted Him dead. Chapter 7 first two verses is a great example of revelation or future prophecy that happened verbatim from the true God.

    I don't believe God restored Israel in 1948 . They have yet to Acknowledge Jesus as lord .

    The promised land was given to the British after the ww1 , they defeated the Ottoman empire in war . The British where given the promised land believe it or not check history . The Ottoman Empire signed a peace treaty with The British and ceased to be a power .

    During ww2 the Jews made deals with the British to help them win a war with Germany etc . The Jews got USA into the war and turned the tide big time . Shorty after Jews had a much easier time getting back home . The British won the war the Jews did not , or was able to defeat the Ottoman Empire .

    The British did not pick a fight they just finished it .

    Spoils go to the victor . Jews made business deals to enter a conquerored land .

    The Lord does restore Israel of old but it happens when He comes back .

    Good question Ready and on reflection Rick I love those great verses saying that you see the fruit and the value of it resulting from correct doctrine.

    Not being legalistic and adding to the work on the cross and showing fruit Eg Not even judging others who are legalistic but loving them into the kingdom and toward the real truth.
