    What is the light in Genesis 1 v3
  • John - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    Linda, to answer your question simply put, no. Jesus said in (John 3:3) "Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he can not see the kingdom of God." meaning that we must some how be reborn to go to heaven. Some will assert that (John 3:5) shows that we must be baptized by water, and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit to be saved, This is easily refuted with scripture. Remember God cannot lie (Titus 1:2) Therefore, Scripture cannot contradict itself. If God required baptism for salvation, then Jesus Christ lied to the thief on the cross. (Luke 23:43) Jesus IS God (John 1:1). He CANNOT lie. God made the way to heaven very simple, so easy that even a child can understand and accept. It is not based on our works (Ephesians 2:8-9) but on our faith in Christ and His FINISHED work on the cross. We must first understand that we are a sinner in need of a Savior. (Romans 3:23) ... When we see that there is a penalty for our sin. (Romans 6:23) That we cannot pay the penalty on our own, but Jesus Christ, loved us so much that He came, lived the perfect life, fulfilled the law, and became sin for us on the cross to pay our sin debt for us. (Romans 5:8) Then believing the gospel by faith, we accept the GIFT of God, confess our belief in Him, and ask Him to save us. (Romans 10:9-13) There are MEN who will take God's gift and want to say that in order to receive it you will need to do this or that, but whenever we add WORKS to the equation the GIFT ceases to be a gift. Repentance is a turning from self and a turning toward Christ.

    Noah's sons were born at different times. His first son was Japheth when Noah was about 500 yrs old. Then came Shem at 502 yrs old & lastly, Ham (unsure how old Noah was at his birth).
  • Chris - in Reply on Numbers 7:67
    Can you check your reference again? I also looked at Numbers & there are instances where God is written on its own without using LORD: Numbers 12:13, 14:2, 15:40, 16:9,22, etc.
  • Charley on Revelation 20:3
    excuse me there are no apostles today if you claim you are an apostle

    did you actually see the lord jesus christ face to face when he rose again

    from the dead? answer is obvious so therefore you are not an apostle,

    nor false prophets which are many today, the bible says to try the spirits

    whether they are from GOD for many false prophets have gone out into

    the world.1st John 4-1
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    When you except Christ, when you take him into your heart, this is your baptism! You will be baptized with fire. Your soul will identify immediately with his holy spirit! The actual water baptism as Christ commands is when you make it public! A public confession, before the world! Before the angels of God! Water baptism is a declaration that you have died and risen again in the spirit of Christ resurrection. It is not true that you are required to have water baptism! If it were true, we would have to physically die before we could receive the spirit of God! And that is not true! The spirit of God is very much alive! These things you will know when he comes for you.
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Philippians 2
    Thats a good question Sarah! "If we're going through the tribulation does the other books of the Bible matters " all the examples in the Bible of saints being spared from God's wrath would seem like fairy tales wouldn't it. Doesn't make sense does It. sort of reasonable to think we want go through it right? Amen
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Samuel 2
    This portion of Scripture isn't about "mutual suicide". We have the servants (no doubt, warriors) of Ishbosheth (pertaining to Israel) & those of David (pertaining to Judah) facing each other by the pool. The suggestion by Abner (of Israel) for their men to have some 'sword play' & had their larger bodies of warriors as spectators. Apparently, those 24 men all killed each other in this small battle & the ensuing (larger) battle that followed by the remaining armies, saw Israel losing altogether to David's army.

    So I see that the intent of these armies facing each other was to do battle, but that little insert of the 24 men sparring with each other was just the 'taster' to start the battle going & not to commit suicide.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Psalms 92
    We war against spiritual darkness , even principalities! very important ,it is not flesh and blood! This is very good learning. You see I never know if the person I'm speaking to is real, if they know anything about God. Could this be spiritual darkness? We never know so we abide in the light of Gods word, and let the holy spirit do the rest!
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 18
    Page 2.

    As was said of Jesus, that He would have His heritage in Eve, of Abraham, of Jesse, made like unto his brethren, the root and offspring of David, tells me that as Mary had this Divine Seed developing in her, being nourished, experiencing all the normal feelings & movements of the Babe within & even bringing Him out in the normal way, is proof sufficient that this Holy Seed brought into the world by Mary had every right & claim to the Davidic line through Mary (& Joseph).

    Does then the absence of a 'bloodline' preclude Jesus being what was claimed of Him? Would it be sufficient that a wholly Divine Jesus, born through a human agent, could be included in the lineage all the way back to Adam? Or, if there was a "bloodline" through Mary, would Jesus have a sinful nature as well? Aspects worthy of some thought to Jesus' qualification not only to be wholly Divine but also to His human descendancy.

    Thanks for your input Bendito. The reference to 'seed' of course does mean as you suggested, but we have to allow for a wider meaning as prescribed from the Hebrew: which is, 'zera', & this includes 'child, descendant, posterity, race, etc.', as seen in other Scriptures showing this (e.g. Genesis 12:7 & others).

    So we could read as you state that the Embryo that was Jesus in Mary's womb, was of her seed coupled with the Divine, or as I believe, that she only carried God's Seed to be brought out into the world. If she supplied her seed for the Word of God to become flesh, then Jesus would have been tainted with the sinful nature of humanity as I don't believe that Mary was sinless. To say that Jesus wouldn't have been so tainted then denies the transmission of the sin nature throughout humanity. Now I know that some believe that Jesus was born with a sin nature & during His testings with Satan & throughout His earthly sojourn, He resisted Satan so that He wouldn't feed that Nature & commit sin. I don't know if you subscribe to this view, but I believe that Jesus didn't have such a nature but His testings from Satan were to instil such a nature in Him as was done to Adam & Eve.

    You also state: "Else he would have not truly been the Son of Man, but another life form." I couldn't quite get my head around this one: I understand that a human being can only be one from both the male & female contributions. If one part was of the Divine & the other human, does this also constitute a human being? Or, if both parts were Divine, could a human be formed in such manner? Or seen in another way, if God could create Adam from dust & Eve from his rib, can God not produce another human only from His compilation of seed(s)?

    Hi Carl, he's not referring to the Lord in this verse, he's referring to the character Ahiezer in verse 66.
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Luke 11:13
    Hi David. A picture of salvation is like when you was a little walking across the street with you parents, you're in the middle and both parents have you by the hand, "they're holding your hands you're not holding theirs" . Jesus says in John ch 10; I give them eternal life and THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH, no man can pluck them out of my hand, my father which gave them me is greater than all and no man can pluck them out of my Father's hand. salvation is a gift for those who believe, but if you try to add to it you are attempting to hold their hand and you will always question your grip.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Psalms 92
    Mark, I hear you loud and clear. When we take our eyes off of him, Our flesh wars against our spirit! Not sure why , but its designed that way. Pretty sure this has something too do with the way he has created us. One thing for sure it will strengthen you for your next battle! This is why we are here ,to glorify him. The stronger you get , the more he is glorified! I like to refer to it as refined gold created in a faith, that will be worth even more! He will answer yours prayers in his own time. Remember that a soldier must bow, before his king! Most of all kneel in Honor. Be anxious for nothing! Be patient , be vigilant, be sober!
  • Walter Moore on Deuteronomy 18
    What is meant by the High places in the Old Testament and what are some examples of present Day High places?
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Psalms 92
    Hi Mark, just to be clear of what you are asking. Are you saying you are praying for the desires in your heart and you are questioning whether the Lord put them there or not, because your prayers are not answered?
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    Hi Linda, to answer question, no there is no requirement to be born again, when you accept Christ as your Lord and savior you are baptised, baptised means to be Identified with, you are put in the body of believers, Its the Lord that baptises you. water baptism is ritual, thats why it comes after you are converted.
  • Charles Johnson - in Reply on Exodus 16:29
    Sorry In reference to this precept

    let no man go out of his place on the seventh day

    Does this mean we are to stay in a house on the Sabbath without leaving unless it's emergency?

    The answer to your question is in 1 John 4:1-3. Spirits from God will acknowledge Jesus Christ. God bless...

    How do I know if it's god talking or the enemy of my own selfish desire. My prayers are not coming to pass
  • Malak - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    Well First the Renewal starts in your Mind. You have to be reborn and understanding the true meaning of repentance. (Acts 17:30). Then After He requires of us to be baptized by water and of the holy spirit. (Matthew 4:17, John 3:5)

    David,

    "And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day."John 6:39

    Are you trusting him to have saved you, or do you have to earn it, and if it is earned, that's not grace.
  • Child of the Heavenly Father on Matthew 8
    Sorry but you are incorrect, the pretrib rapture is biblical, but there is also a subsequent one in the great tribulation for the left behind who by then will have repented and the new believers. Please read this: tinyurl.c o m/y7wp37gu I highly recommend you watch Pastor Sandy Armstrong of Soldiers for Christ Community Church YouTube channel.
  • DAVID STEWART on Luke 11:13
    once justfied in christ is it possible to lose your salvation and grace or are you permanently

  • Benjamin - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7:8
    If money is your struggle, the Lord will understand if you don't have a ceremonious wedding. Also, dont get married under the law. Our system of marriage certificates is not Godly. Simply a commitment to one another is being married under the vision of God. Don't let yourself burn with passion if it will make you sinful.
  • Marcus Brazil on 2 Samuel 2
    2 Samuel 2:16 While reading the scriptures I have questions about this seemingly 12 acts of mutual suicide. Could their lives not have been better used in battle???
