  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Esdras 6:9
    Ronald, I understand that our Latin/Teutonic naming of days from the pantheon of gods, is simply that - just names. If we were to remain faithful to the Scriptural account, then we should indeed refer to our week of days as Day 1, Day 2, etc. & not by the heathen names. Sadly, to use this type of reference, would make us appear to the general populace as highly peculiar.

    So, if the Sabbath (God's Day of resting from His creating Work) is clearly seen as the 7th Day (& using this as our reference point), then it follows that the 1st Day of the week was the Resurrection Day & the Day observed by the early Christians for worship. The fact that it was deemed necessary to add the names of gods to those days is just something that we have to live with.

    Don't know if the above specifically or adequately answers your question.
  • Jesse on Revelation 1
    Jon,

    You say you were recently born again? If so, then you have God's Spirit in you. You can't be born again without His Spirit. When you receive Christ, His Spirit (Holy Spirit) comes into your spirit and seals you. That is a spiritual birth. That is what it means to be born again. So when you say you are born again, that is proof that you have His Spirit.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Almighty God, you are the only source of health and healing. In you there is calm, and the only true peace in the universe. Grant to each one of us your children an awareness of your presence, and give us perfect confidence in you. In all pain and weariness and anxiety teach us to yield ourselves to you. Lord, bless this sister from the top of her head to the soles of her feet. Heal allergies and tell her what to do to speed the healing. In Jesus Name, amen.

    Once a week make. 50/50 half water and half apple cider vinegar rinse, for clean hair. Rinse after 30 mins.

    Teboho, apologies for neglecting this - I assumed that the word 'ministering' was the main focus here.

    If I could give the Greek here: 'didaskon' = to teach, instruct or impart knowledge. It is used many times in the NT as it spoke of Jesus teaching (as in Matthew 21:23), those from the apostles (2 Thes 2:15), or teaching within the Church (1 Timothy 3:2, 2 Timothy 2:24, where this gift is generally exercised by the elders who were carefully appointed to lead the Church to fulfil this important function). Often these days, the role of a Pastor (Gk. Poimen) is also seen as not only a shepherd of the flock, but also the Church leader & elder, but scripturally evident, a pastor's role is a shepherd/guide, who may or may not be an elder or have the gift of teaching.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    Veronica,

    We are given an account of the horrific events of the Tribulation in Revelation Chapters 4 through 29. This is a time when God will pour His wrath on on an unbelieving world. There is no place in scripture that tells us that God's wrath will be poured out on believers. In fact, in 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5, it tells us that we are not appointed unto wrath, but to salvation. During the tribulation, there is no mention of the church until Chapter 19 when Christ comes back. But it says that He comes back with all His saints (The Church). If we come back with Him, it would seem to me that we are in heaven with Him during the tribulation. Plus, there is a wedding taking place in heaven before Christ comes back with His saints. We are His bride and this wedding is taking place in heaven while the tribulation is still happening on the earth. So, with that being said, I also agree with you the the church will be removed prior to these horrific events take place. There would be no purpose for us to be here during that time.

    To All Christian's!

    When feeling down, depressed, no where to go. . . Start singing the Hymn- What can wash my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Oh precious, is the flow, that makes me white was snow! No other "way" I know. Nothing but the Blood of Jesus." Repeat, until the love of Jesus flows through you. It's the Blood of Jesus that takes away out pain, doubt, etc. Sing Christian's! Sing!
  • Tiyo Harris - in Reply on John 14
    John 14 is one of many scripture I hold dear to my heart. The words Jesus spoke to us, "Let not you heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. . ." Christian's, God sends trials our way to strengthen us. It is a workout of our belief. I kneel down to God (sometimes, I lay on the floor-face drown crying to my Father and His Son Christ Jesus. I tell him all my pain-spiritual warfare. Psalms is still alive today. The Lord is my Shepard, I shall not want. He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my (Our) soul. Yeh, though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil. For thou are with me. Thy rod and staff comfort me. Believers, GOD IS WITH US ALWAYS! GOD BLESS
  • Tiyo Harris on John 14
    John 14 is one of my rocks, which I stand upon. Let not your heart be trouble (anxiety, depression, opression). Neither let it be afraid. Why Christian's? God is our Rock to which we stand. Christian's need to give ALL that troubles us to God. He will never leave us, or forsake us. He is our Comforter. To those who desire to harm us, "Vengance is mine sayeth the Lord. I WILL REPAY." If find myself running in circles, lost. I do not hear God speaking with His still & calm voice. And when I calm myself down. I am reminded that God sets my feet on solid ground. The Lord sends trials our way, to make us stronger. Trials will always be out there. We need to hold our hands up, to God!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

    In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    The First Resurrection is of the dead in Christ and the Second is after 1000 years. Paul wrote that the Dead in Christ MUST rise FIRST, THEN we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

    16 ...and the dead in Christ shall RISE FIRST

    17 THEN we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them...

    In Revelation 20:4-5, John sees the souls of Saints who were BEHEADED for refusing the Mark of the Beast during the Great Tribulation. John writes that they will rise and reign with Christ for 1000 years and that this is the FIRST RESURRECTION!

    If according to John, the beheaded rise in the FIRST resurrection and Paul said those who are alive and remain are not caught up until AFTER the dead in Christ are resurrected, then this means the catching up or rapture takes place AFTER tribulation!

    Now compare the above with 1 CORINTHIANS 15:20-23:

    20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of those who slept.

    21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

    22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    23 But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; AFTERWARDS THOSE WHO ARE CHRIST'S AT HIS COMING.

    Notice only one resurrection of the dead in Christ is mentioned here! Which, according to Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 must take place BEFORE we who are alive and remain are "caught up" with them!

    When did Jesus say the dead in Christ would be resurrected?

    John 6:39-40: Jesus said, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up ON THE LAST DAY.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    WHEN IS THE RAPTURE / RESURRECTION?

    In Revelation 20:4-6 the last book of the Bible there are only 2 more FUTURE Resurrections (Raptures) spoken of: (after the 2 witnesses appear)

    4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the FIRST RESURRECTION. or rapture

    6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the SECOND DEATH hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

  • Alex on John 15:26
    Comments about the Comforter the H.G. John 15 V 26 KJV. THE COMFORTER THE h.g. will not come till Jesus is Glorified meaning multiplication of his seed the Word the H.G has to be born in US via a seed the WORD the living WORD not the written Word but the LIVING WORD YA REMEMBER HE BREATH ON THEM AND THEY RECEIVED THE H.G. His breath was his WORD,HIS SEED ETC HE had already said he that soweth the good seed is the son of man, and that good seed is the word of God,Yes jesus has a seed, its his WORD to whom the word came it made them Gods thus he can propagate God thats y he is saying that which is BORN of the spriit is spirit thats our new innerman the H.G. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY IS THE MULTIPLCATION OF CHRIST THE CHILD OF PROMISE THE H.G. TH GLORFICATION OF CHRIST MEANING THE H.G WILL COME WHEN HE GOES FORTH TO SOW HIS SEED TH WORD IN US SINNERS THE WORLD. The scriptures say that the GLORY OF THE FATHERS ARE THE CHILDREN.Ya remember the h.g fell on them that heard his WORDS, HE WAS REPRODUCING HIMSELF VIA HIS SEED THE WORD IN SINNERS thus the kingdom will come as child birth but the child is the H.G. THE KINGDOM unless ya receive the kingdom as a lil child etc.Ya gotta realize that the parable of the sower and his seed is multiplication in humanity via his seed. The scripture says that the H.G was not yet given b/c that Christ was not yet GLORFIED meaning multiplication ( the sower and his seed ) the contents of the book, the new covenant remember when the book was opened thats when they sang a new song. the woman goes into travail and child birth ( multiplication of his seed in humanity . But God told Daniel these WORDS(new covenant ) is sealed till the time of the End,as the book was sealed till the end. After the Woman gives birth then John 12 v 10 says Now is come salvation, and the kingdom of our lord and his Christ ( the child ) THE CHILD IS THE H.G. TH KINGDOM. One of the seals is GLORIFICATION ( GLORY ) I.E. THIS CHAP. 12 IS PURE KINGDOM VIA A CHILD TH H.G.
  • Sherry Willette on Proverbs 12:24
    Yes i learned this when i was in Bible college to always read Proverbs daily, other books of bible i wish ,devotions,studies.

    I find after all years of consistent daily reading it is new each time. Amen
  • Veronica Bowen on Matthew 24:8
    I am having a (sometimes heated) discussion. I say the Rapture will come before the Tribulation. He says the Tribulation will come before the Rapture. What are some Scriptures that I can show him that will show that the Rapture will precede the Tribulation?

    Thank you.
  • Laurie on Psalms 70
    I commit my life to God.
  • Norma Coleman on Psalms 32:8
    It is said that the eyes are the window to your soul, then it also saids that the soul is the most inner parts of our being. That to me are the heart and the emotions. I believe God sees with, his heart, his Spirit. So when he says, " I will guide you with my eyes." He is guiding us with love, as a parent does for their children. You see God leads with his heart and that is what he is trying to get us to do. Let him lead us with his heart.
  • Ronald A Foster - in Reply on 2 Esdras 6:9
    With all due respect, my authority is the Holy Scriptures specifically the Original African Heritage Edition KJV. (Not excluding other translations). I measure everything else written using this Bible as my truth.

    Of course there is much one can learn from other written materials in any field of study but something as serious as the subject we are discussing...adding to or replacing is not something I want to venture into. God our creator preceded all of the writers of the past, present and future. His words are what I stand on and base my life on and through the shedding of the blood of His Son Jesus Christ I have been saved.

    If God says it, I have enough faith to believe it. If He didn't say it or it isn't written through Him, I have to question it.

    Thanks for responding
  • Mike on Matthew 24:5
    Matthew 24:5 KJV

    (5) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

    Many false prophets shall come in His name (using the name "Jesus") saying that "I am the Christ"....that is, they come preaching "another Jesus" and state that the Jesus that they are preaching is the true Christ.

    They come preaching "another Jesus" stating that their Jesus is the true Christ (I am the Christ) and deceive the many who gladly bear with them.

    2 Corinthians 11:3-4 KJV

    (3) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

    (4) For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    But the "Jesus" that they preach is not the true Christ but is the "Antichrist"...instead of the true Christ.

    Dear Chris

    Thanks for that but you did not answer me fully. I asked what the difference between Ministering and Teaching is. You touched on the first and not the latter. Please assist and explain fully

    God Bless
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    DiamondJane exactly and Jesus even uses this imagery in his words.

    Matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

    Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

  • Patty Tozi on Numbers 35
    Do you ever think about your life in these days? How close we are to losing our life faster then before. As the trees come down we will see more of God's creations die. So what does that mean? The less of God's creations our strength is harder to get. Unless you study and pray for our Heavenly Father to help us. Do not straddle the fence. Do not stop seeing day to day how God can take you away as we take His creations down. The sprays- the pollution..all killing us now slowly..or the silent virus that comes in a wink of an eye to get us. His warriors are struggling as we fight the evilness this world has become. We know now we live day to day. Never knowing without God close we would be gone in a wink of our eye. We most totally rely on our Father. Even our air we breathe. This world has turned way worse then l ever studied in 2012. Lies and deceit everywhere. Our God is our strength. Mankind our enemy. The evilness will show up right away if you have the light for strength around you to see. For everything will be exposed to you. Days going faster now-- have you noticed? Have you slowed down enough to really see the truth of our world now? Well, you should. Our life can end as fast as it began. So reach up to the Heavens always...not the world.

    Please tell me which will come first , the REAL rapture? Or The faux immitation Jesus to fool the Christians?
  • D.J. - in Reply on 2 Esdras 6:9
    Ronald, (Concerning the days of the week)

    Have you considered looking at the Dead Sea Scrolls?

    The Book of Enoch, in particular, reveals a 364 day solar priestly calendar; used by Israel until around 175 B.C.

    52 (weeks) x 7 = 364

    Look at the first book of Enoch; specifically, ch. 72, and ch. 82 (column 27) are words concerning the ancient solar calendar.

  • Diamondjane - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    I appreciate your message. I found in my travels another understanding by a woman who wrote a paperback of Psalms 91. She described Gods call to his children in the face of danger as a mother hen. A mother hen will cluck warnings to her chicks and they respond by running to mom's call. Once they reach mom she will lift her feathers so that every last chick jumps in and is covered. Mom will keep that open until every last chick finds safety. I hope that resonates a sense of security as it does for me.
