    We are seeing evil on an apocalyptic level arent we??!?

    Yes. Babtizeing dont save you. You are saved by grace through faith. But you should be babtized. It shows the death, burial and resurection of Christ. Show that you are going to follow Him.
  • Cecil Gary - in Reply on Revelation 6
    It is my opinion that the riders on the four horses of Revelation chapter 6 are angels or spirits that go out from standing before the Lord of all the earth, Zechariah chapter 6. Each rider has the power to orchestrate what happens on the earth according to God's will. It is my opinion the rider on the white horse will give power to a specific leader to wage war and conquer many nations. Is this the Antichrist? No one can really say without more scriptural evidence. The rider of the Red horse is given power to take peace from the earth. Men will kill one another. These two may indicate a world war. During and immediately after war comes famine. The black horse represents famine, starvation. A measure is the amount a man can eat in one day. A penny was translated from denarius which was a silver roman coin. When Jesus walked the earth, a denarius was a days wage. If you do the math, a family would have to choose between eating or paying their bills. A large family would starve either way. The rider on the pale horse is death. Notice it says they have power over a fourth of the earth to kill with sword, white and red horses, hunger, black horse, death, the pale horse, and with the beasts of the earth. There are four horses and four beast that that introduce them. The fifth seal shows under the alter the slain souls from the early church to 3 1/2 years of Great Tribulation. The six seal is the Second Coming of Jesus. See Matthew chapter 24:29, 30, 31... Cecil Gary

    return with him to Jerusalem! Not to Jerusalem, But to Paradise to be judged for all things done good or bad. Then if we are worthy, its on to Heaven.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on John 6
    most churches today worship on a Sunday the day that Christ rose from the dead. Sabbath is Saturday. But, really we should worship him everyday.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on John 6
    Some have said that the word rapture is not in the bible. Does it matter? Everyone knows what it means. Caught up to be with the Lord in the sky.

  • Elsie Adderley - in Reply on Revelation 20
    I too considered this question myself and read again 20th chapter and latter part of verse 1 of the Revelation, that he(Satan) should deceive the nations no more, til the thousand years are fulfilled.

    These are the same people who were destroyed by the brightness of Christ at His return for his people 2 Thessalonians 2:8. Satan cant deceive them, Christ brightness destroys them, they are all dead. Then at the end of the thousand years Satan will be loosed to deceive them for a short season, Revelation 20:5 the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.

  • Richard on 1 John 5:4
    First off I want to thank all those that have taken the time to answer my questions on different bible verses,but i do have another one, in chapter 5 John says not to pray for anyone who has sinned unto death I have been told the only sin unforgivable is to die without Jesus I am not sure I believe that was the unpardonable sin that Jesus was talking about. So can anyone tell me what sin John is talking about?
  • Brian D. - in Reply on Zechariah 14
    Jacob was blessed being the younger son. There is a Biblical theme which runs throughout the Old and New Testaments in regards to the younger son being chosen over the older son. This deals with God's divine election or choosing not by works but by divine Grace.

    Adam,

    I apologize for making the devil comment seemingly directed at you. Please forgive me.

    What I meant to say was that the devil is behind the Protestant division. He hates the Eucharist as it is such a personal love gift from Jesus to His people.

    So the perfect storm happened with Father Martin Luther in 1400s to break off a branch of revolutionaries from "under the thumb" of the Catholic Church into a new dissident group called Protestants which allowed them to do away with many of the fundamental teachings and authority of the Church. You can be assured that the devil was behind this fiasco as he hates the Catholic Church as well.

    So Protestantism was able in one fell swoop to get rid of Jesus' priesthood, His established government, His Mass, His Eucharist, and the rest of His grace giving sacraments (save Baptism thanks be to God) etc. This is how the devil has tricked multiple generations of people and deprived them of the full benefits of the Church that Jesus established. This is also why there are more than 30,000 different Christian denominations because there is no authority to govern the splinters and the interpretation of the bible. The Bible needs the Church for true interpretation not visa versa. Without that, 2 people can interpret the same passage different ways and they both can't be right (this thread is an example) and therefore, that is why there are so many different denominations.

    So, I rest my case that the fullness of Jesus plan is for us to "all be one" in the Catholic Church that He established, guides and nourishes at every moment. IMHO, there will be a reunification of the Protestants with the Catholic Church and this may happen by the end of the year. If you think that much of a change is impossible, just look what has happen to our world in less than a year. The devil is in his last temper tantrum - fear, division and ultimately the antichrist's appearance. We live in exciting times. Hold on to your booties!
  • Alex on Genesis 1:14
    Comments by Alex on Eccle 3 v 4 Solomon said i saw the 2 nd Child that shall rise up in his stead and there is no end to the ppl he shall be king over. This is prophetic of the H.G. THAT LIL CHILD THAT IS GONNA LEAD THE WHOLE WORLD IN Isaiah 11 V 5. Why is the H.G refered to as a Child simply b/c he is gonna be born in us via that good seed. That which is born of the spirt is spirit which is his name sake that is not born of flesh or blood or of the will of man but only by the will of God only by the word of God sown in our hearts can produce this 2 nd child,being bornagain of an incorruptible seed etc. the relationship betwn Christ and the early Church produced a Child called Christianity but the child was sick and died in its infancy. My lil children of whom i travail in birth AGAIN ,Remember Bathsheba had to travail again for the 2 nd child the great king Solomon. Galatians 4 v 19 My lil CHILDREN OF WHOM I TRAVAIL IN BIRTH AGAIN, PROPHETIC THAT THE CHURCH IS GONA travail again. John saw a great sign in heaven a Woman in travail, for the 2 nd child which is spirit the H.G. PLURAL MANY AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN THAT WAS THE PROMISE. Remember Jeremiah saw All men in travail and birth pains,Jesus had said that the field wd be the world,God so loved the world etc. When Solomon didicated his new temple he invited all men even the Gentiles with his hands toward heaven he prayed FATHER the stranger that is not of thy ppl Israel if they shall come here to worhip do what the stranger asked of thee. Remember Solomon was a type of the 2 nd child but Jesus said a greater then Solomon is here which is the H.G. that great king that makes our bodies his temple jew or gentile, abide in me and i in you.God found fault with the 1st child the 7 churches in Asia, the 1st child died in its infancy. Even Paul said when that which is prefect is come that which is done in part will be done away with. Remember the image in Daniel 2 had to be done away with even tho the head was of gold. All Parts.
  • Carleton on Matthew 24:9
    The door to repentance is more than knowing the Word of God, it is more than saying the Rock is Jesus Christ and the foundation of all Truth is built upon Him, it is more that saying Jesus died on the Cross for me, it is more than preaching for the need of repentance. This door is mercy and this door will be opened to any believer that allows the Truth and Holiness of God in Jesus Christ by boldly moving forward in faith to have your person (sin) be crushed by the Rock. This mercy and this Holy way of God is nothing we can achieve for ourselves and of ourselves. Freedom in Christ Jesus will be found in this crushing of self by one's surrender by choice to this Rock of Salvation, Jesus Christ.

    The old person or man will perish, but the new person will know the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ in His resurrected life. This new person is a blessing and freedom and is fed by the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost sent by Jesus from Heaven. This Comforter will provide love beyond measure for Jesus, brethren and His love, through you reflected towards your neighbor.

    Before the True Christian was crushed by the door of repentance which is God's Holy Mercy (because he wants every soul to Himself to share His Glory) they were a neighbor to Jesus. So we are our neighbors neighbor.

    Therefore know this door of Mercy by personally being crushed by the Rock of Salvation and then you can love your neighbor as yourself and in know the Righteousness that is in Him and His Holiness.

    God bless our meditations.
  • Adam - in Reply on John 6:53
    Dear Mike, I am willing to continue this discussion as long as you use respectful language.

    In your first paragraph you asked a couple questions that seem to be loaded with assumptions. I have no idea where those assumptions even come from.

    At the end of your first paragraph you mention Peter as head of his church? I don't interpret the verse that way at all. Jesus is the head of the church, not a man or anyone else. You can view a commentary on this on this website which explains it in detail: Link

    In your second paragraph you make a case for 'priestly succession', but I believe this conclusion is based on misinterpretions of the scripture. Jesus already said he's the way, no one else. He's the door, no one else. No hierarchy or priesthood is supported by the scriptures as an arbitrator between you and God. The Bible says church can have its own minister, elders and deacons, but that's only for church management, not for a relationship between you and God. Jesus is the way, he's the only way. There's no where in scripture saying people need to pray to a pope and have graven images of them. It says the opposite, though.
  • Norman Walker Butch - in Reply on John 6:53
    I hope when that one on one with Jesus comes that I am ready in his eyes! I am a firm believer in God and Jesus and everything the Bible says they did and everything they said to everyone. Thank you Jesus for all you have done for us and thank you God for creating this world we live in and there is not one word about you or the Bible I do not believe unless it comes from somewhere else other than the Bible! Love you and believe in you until the day Jesus comes, Amen
  • Norman Walker Butch - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Maybe I am reading your comment wrong but I really wish you would not blast anything in the Bible. I believe every word that is in it and always will until the day I leave this earth!! Amen
  • Carleton - in Reply on Acts 17
    Hi Andy and friends, I understand the message but I do not understand the delivers of the message.

    Thank you. Carleton the goat (for now).
  • Mike - in Reply on John 6:53
    (continued with Adam as I ran out of counter)

    Have you not asked other people to pray for you or for some special intention that you have? I'm guessing you have. Why do you do that? Are you not putting a man/woman in-between you and Jesus? Jesus established a new priesthood in the apostles and put Peter as head of His Church on earth (Matthew 16:18+).

    The Acts of the Apostles shows in numerous places about priestly succession as well as succession of Peter after he died. Jesus knew his apostles were going to die and designed His Church to continue till the end of time with a priesthood to administer His Sacraments which meant someone else would need to replace Peter as head of the Church and receive the power of the "keys". If you don't like the way Jesus set up His Church government, talk to Him. Technically, the Pope has only invoked the power of Infallibility less than a handful of times and usually not without consulting his advisors. The Lord's Peace brother.
  • Adam - in Reply on John 6:53
    Hello, I'm secure in what the Bible says and means. Have you prayed to God to reveal the truth to you? Please be respectful and don't say things like 'the devil has tricked you', because others can say that right back to you. God bless you.
  • MIKE - in Reply on John 6:53
    Dear Adam,

    I do believe Jesus spoke in parables and I'm sure you will agree that he spoke literally as well. New Testament refers to Jesus as the paschal/passover lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7). Vegan Jews didn't skip eating the lamb at the Passover - eating the flesh was a requirement to fulfill God's ultimatum. When Jesus said we are to eat and drink his flesh and blood he meant it.

    You cherry picked the John 6 passage. Continue on:

    55For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. 56He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

    60Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, "This is a hard saying; who can understand it?"

    61When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He said to them, "Does this offend you?

    66From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. Then Jesus said to the twelve, "Do you also want to go away?"

    If Jesus was speaking symbolically, He would have called those who were leaving and said "Wait a minute, here's what I really meant." No He didn't and to make the point He was willing to have his apostles go away if they didn't believe what he said. The Eucharist is the ultimate "call to Faith" that Jesus gave the members of His Church and the ultimate gift. The saying of a couple in love saying "I could just eat you" - well in this case, Jesus meant it. He is the manna for the Journey, the living bread, the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the crown jewel that the Protestants threw out when rebelling. And as for the Pope, read up on when Jesus gave Peter the "keys" and what that means. That should resolve your Pope issues and succession. Joseph in the old testament had the "keys" to Egypt. Also remember, the Church came 400 years before the Bible. The bible has truth, but not the whole truth. That is found in the Tradition of the Catholic Church. "Eat my flesh and drink my blood" - NOT SYMBOLIC. The devil has tricked you. God's blessings brother.
  • Alex on Genesis 1:14
    My name is Alex and there is something on my heart i wd like to talk about, This thing about David and Bathsheba bothers me, i see this David and Bathsheba thing as Christ and the Church plz donot misunderstand me. The Church had a husband which was the law, at Horeb Moses married israel to the law Moses said this iswhat God has enjoined unto you, enjoined is a word we use at WEDDINGS Israel and the law were married just like bathsheba and Uriah were marrried but she was barren with Uriah . But David was taken with this woman bathsheba and a child resulted but the child was sick and died in its infancy, reminds me of the relationship btw Christ and the early Church she had a previous husband which was the law but Paul is saying in Romans 7 v 4 You are dead to the LAW by the body of Christ that you should BEMARRIED to Anothed even to him that WAS raised from the dead Christ Jesus. THAT YOU SHOULD BRING FORTH FRUIT UNTO GOD TH 2 ND CHILD, MY LIL CHILDREN OF WHOM I TRAVAIL IN BIRTH TILL CHRIST IS FORMED IN YOU the woman in Revelation 12 is giving birth to the 2 nd child ( th children of the kingdom ) Bathsheba had to travail again for Solomon th 2 nd Child prophetic that there is a 2 nd child coming which is the H.G. Solomon means comforter in hebrew,it was the 2 nd child solomon th granson in the Davidic kingdom that God allowed to build the temple which speaks volumes of a 2 nd child coming which is gonna be born in our hearts.Solomon said he saw the 2 nd child that was gonna be raised up and be King over all the earth is this not prophetic of the child born in Revelation 12 that John said was the very kingdom of God, the power of his CHRIST ETC. We are the woman and her Child is the H.G. that is gona be born in our hearts via the seed of Christ th Word. Remember the Promise that the seed of Christ wd be multiplied as the stars of heaven,resulting in a birth in All ppls.27 times th prophets saw the WORLD IN TRAVAIL AND BIRTH PAINS ( TH 2ND CHILD ) THAT IS GONNABE BORN IN US GBU
