  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Timothy 3:3
    Many are now trying to place this Corona virus outbreak within the scope of Scripture. There is no mention of it specifically, nor should we expect to see it. This outbreak, as with other major turmoils the world has faced (earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, diseases, massacres, etc), falls under the broad category of the sufferings mankind faces because of his inherent sin & its effect on God's creation. Of course, there will be increasing turmoils that ultimately lead to the final outpouring of God's Anger upon this world, known as the Great Tribulation. You can read about this time in Revelation chapters 6-9 mainly. It will be an awful time ahead - Corona virus will be like an itch only

    Secondly, the length of hair is not the 'long hair' we are familiar with, but when he adorns himself as a woman (of those days) did (v14). But if man (read: anyone reading Paul's passage on this issue) is contentious about what Paul has said, Paul writes that he has no other option to give nor from God's Church. (v 16). There may have been some who were under a Nazarite vow which included the non-cutting of the hair (Numbers 6). But whether Paul was referring to any of those in the Church, or if they, after completion of their vow, failed to also trim their hair, is not certain. But what is clear from 1 Cor 11, is that there is an order in the Church - we choose to obey it or not.

    Re: Mishael on 1 Cor 11:3 >. This is 'dangerous' ground where even angels (& some preachers) fear to tread, but it is Scripture & should be examined. Poor apostle Paul has taken a beating over the years by many women over this passage, as it not only speaks of hair length, but of covering the head & the position of man and woman in creation & in God's Sight. Firstly, head covering when praying or prophesying, is not a cultural matter, but a spiritual & positional one before God & the angels (vv 3-11). We have now made it cultural, thereby largely doing away with it in our meetings.

  • This Hebrew word has been difficult to correctly translate. However, it is generally accepted that it means: to pause or to reflect at the end of the 'verse' (on what has just been read or sung). At times, it could also mean some type of musical term or provide musical direction. We know that Psalms, in Hebrew, are poetic in nature and often sung, especially to musical accompaniment: (see James 5:13). Also when the Lord spent his final hours with his disciples in the Upper Room, at the end of their meal, they had sung a hymn (very likely a Psalm) & then went out to the Mt. of Olives. However, Selah could possibly allow for some thanks and praise, as was suggested to you.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Acts 12:4
    ANXIETY:

    Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus is teaching on cares and worries of this world. Two thousand years later we still need this compassionate sermon. We still worry and feel anxious even tho we know Jesus tells us not to.
    It helps me to take time to pray and worship. I sing like a frog.
  • Mishael on Psalms 91
    I'm thinking of Passover tonight and Jesus's sacrifice for us. When it was finished, the veil in the Temple was torn from top to bottom! It was so huge no priest could've done that. It was a statement of great magnitude. Jesus has done so much for me. I want to be more like Him.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    I haven't a clue. Maybe it's because Paul had Gentiles, Greeks and Jews in his meetings. They argued about circumcision too. It must have been hard to turn their minds from law to grace.
  • Vanasha Little on 1 Corinthians 11:26
    Selah, what does it mean as a word in general???

    Someone or an angel told me that it is the same as saying, thank you Jesus, or praises to my Lord and savior or hallelujah thank you Jesus. Is that true???
  • Ricardo - in Reply on Matthew 25:1
    Perhaps the five foolish virgins are an analogy for the five physical senses, which we are told not to be guided by them.
  • Sheri - in Reply on Philippians 4
    I completely agree that the Holy Spirit gives us the power to do whatever God asks us to do. I was merely commenting on the word as translated.
  • Sheri - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    In verse 16, Paul says that if you would like to argue about hair length, it is up to you as this has nothing to do with God's people. We judge by the heart, not outward appearance. I cannot imagine Jesus complaining about how long or short someone's hair is.
  • T'Ann - in Reply on John 1:10
    I think Jesus is the Word also. Look at 1st John 5 and Revelation 19:13
    God Bless
  • Patricia - in Reply on Isaiah 26
    I totally agree with you. May the Lord Continue ti best and keep you.
  • Mishael 1 Corinthians 612 1023 - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient; all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
    (10:23) ...but all things edify not.

    Now in chapter 11 quite a lot is said about women's hair and men's. Is it good or bad?
  • Renea Barnaby - in Reply on Revelation 10
    Amen!! That is what I understand too, that John would be one of the two prophets.

  • Kim Alexander - in Reply on Judges 19
    Thank you Bob, for clearing up the meaning of concubine, I was way off base.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Sir, you've done no wrong. It's not what we eat that defiles us, but what comes out of the mouth (Matthew 15:11). It's the evil that comes out of the mouth that defiles because it comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something I have learned about the so called greatest commandments spoken in Matthew Chapter 22. Those are not commandments at all. Our English bibles look like they are commands, but in the Greek text, they are not in command form but are statements of fact. Jesus was not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. What He was saying is that if you have born of His Spirit, you will love the Lord you God, and you will love your neighbor. Not a command but statement of fact.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Sir, you've done no wrong. Jesus said (Matthew 15:11) that it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out. Food we eat does not defile us. It's what comes out of the mouth, the evil a person speaks, because that comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something else here that I have learned. The two "greatest commandments" in Matthew Chapter 22, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and love thy neighbor, are not commands. Our bibles make it sound like they are commands, but the Greek text shows that they are not commands. Jesus is not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. He's giving us a factual statement, you will love, if you have my Spirit in you. Fact!
  • Barbara Parnell - in Reply on Philippians 4
    My pastor always says if I give you a verse, you take the chapter, when we read Philippians 4 especially verse 13 we also need to read verse 11 & 12. Paul speaks about having it all and living well and of having nothing and suffering yet knowing he can do all things, he can survive and continue to spread the word of Jesus no matter what the circumstances in his life because Jesus gives him the strength to do His (Jesus') work. Because Jesus is leading him and keeping him on the path through all obstacles.
  • Joel on John 1:10
    The One that Made the world ( The word Himself was in the world ) The world could not recognize Him( The Word)
  • Joel on John 1:1
    Your word is you, we can only know you by your word, God is God because He is the God of His word, He said Heaven and earth will pass away but none of His word will go without fulfillment. His is what make Him the God. I honour my word more than my name..............

    Yes that is so true that a woman hair is her glory
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Judges 19
    a concubine was a woman who was not technically a wife, yet was available for the pleasure of a man and was treated similar to a wife. Websters 1828 dictionary CONCUBINE, noun Latin , to lie together, to lie down.
    1. A woman who cohabits with a man, without the authority of a legal marriage; a woman kept for lewd purposes; a kept mistress.

    2. A wife of inferior condition; a lawful wife, but not united to the man by the usual ceremonies, and of inferior condition. Such were Hagar and Keturah, the concubines of Abraham; and such concubines were allowed by the Roman laws.
  • George on 1 Chronicles 16:12
    What is god saying
    I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
  • Kim Alexander - in Reply on Judges 19
    Just how many women are in a concubine and all married to the same man.
    I understand why, fore it was to populate the earth.
  • Shalom - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 32:31
    2 Kings 18:15 And Hezekiah gave him all the silver that was found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house. 2 Kings 18:16 At that time did Hezekiah cut off the gold from the doors of the temple of the LORD, and from the pillars which Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid, and gave it to the king of Assyria.
  • Shalom - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 32:31
    2 Kings 18:14 And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachish, saying, I have offended; return from me: that which thou puttest on me will I bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.

    Study and meditation are the best answers!!
