    God bless you brother Richard in Christ

    Thank you heartily for a very mature response which shows some spiritual common sense. It is not something seen very often on these kinds of discussion forums. It is like a breath of fresh-air; and I appreciate your time and effort to type it up.

    Love in the Lord of all, Jesus Christ

    Christian love to you brother Chris

    Thanks you once more for you reply. Let us leave it there for now as I digest what has been offered to me.

    Peace and love in Christ to you and the children of God where you are.
  • Amen, Mervyn! You are so useful to Jesus! Always focus on the blessings and the abilities you Do have! The blessings he bestowed upon you.

    God Bless

    You need a study Bible. I use the King James Study Bible and it is wonderful! Provides explanation of scripture, references to other scripture, many notes that are very beneficial and translation of words. You can also use your phone, tablet or computer to Google scripture and include the word "meaning"(exp. John 3:16 meaning) in your search. Pray for the Holy Spirit to help you understand what you are reading! As always, give thanks to God for the ability to have a Bible in your hands!

    Genesis 4:17 tells us Cain knew his wife and she bare Enoch. We can affirm by scripture that he married his wife.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    The days of statesmen leaders are long gone: you know the days way back in political history, when a few men governed by their consciences, in the fear of God & instilling righteousness in society. Nowadays, political muscle & job security take precedence over doing what is right & so governments give support to the majority voice & just enough bait to the minority to keep them happy. In my mind, any imbecile could do that work - it doesn't take any skill to work with the numbers. But it would take one of character (both as an individual & party) to go against the tide of people's demands & act upon proper moral & ethical values & for the general good of all: those still in the womb & in the world. But the fact is that such a party would never get in, as the evil one has his say & sway in the hearts of the unregenerate & degenerate.

    Yet, even with such a bleak outlook for the future, we know that God will still have His final Word & that even through our wonder & despondency, He still uses such governments to fulfil His Plans. 2 Kings 14:26-27 reminds us that even with wicked Jeroboam, God could use him to bring Israel out of her bitter affliction - that all things are possible with God. We should pray for those in government (1 Timothy 2:1-3) & be as those who that stand in the gap, interceding for them who have not God's love & power in their lives (Ezekiel 22:30).

    Matthew 22:36-40

    New International Version

    36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"

    37 Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments

    2 Peter 3:18

    King James Version

    18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen

    Romans 1:17

    "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith."
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    What I don't understand about the pro-death argument is how a Christian can justify the mass-murder of babies when there's clear Bible verses that an unborn baby is sacred and made in God's image.

    My only guess as to this position is thinking of special cases of rape or incest. But adoption is still the best alternative in any case if a mother doesn't want to be one. Barren moms and dads can pay thousands of dollars and wait many years to adopt, because other moms would rather kill their baby than let he/she have a loving adoptive family to raised in.

    It doesn't make sense how it's illegal to kill an unborn animal like an eagle egg or many other animals or harming plants too, but it's legal to kill an unborn human and the government will even help you pay for it. Does that make sense to anyone?
  • Steven Meyers on Genesis 4
    Where might I find scripture explaining this question,

    Who exactly did Cain marry?

    (And please note that I asked for "scripture" and not opinion, with all due respect)

    I've simply not been able to find it and am only just curious- not questioning the Bible. Thank you and be blessed

    Using this Website for Searches

    Some words that I see, I run through THIS websites SEARCH BOX to see if the search engine has that word in it.

    If the word your looking up doesn't fetch some scriptures, then it's not in the KJV. The website will ask if you want to google search? It will offer scriptures it thinks will help you find the word you are searching:

    Similar but not the same.

    Don't be afraid to search around and see what all this website can help you with in your studies.

    **The Commentaries are within the Search Box. Click/touch your scripture. It will turn yellow. Scroll downward and there you can read the Commentary by a scholar.

    If you get "lost". Just back arrow out or go out and come back in again. Don't be afraid of it. You'll be an expert in no time.

    Always ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand scripture. He is your Teacher. He's just waiting on you to ask for HELP.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 122
    I am so blessed to hear of your mothers healing.

    At times, In the Gospels, Jesus Healed everybody. Other times He couldn't because of unbelief.

    The more we know about how he interacted with every day people; the more settled our faith is that He desires to bless and heal his children.

    Ask and receive. Lord Jesus bless this family. Song of Solomon 6:3.

    May they depend upon you for strength, courage, and assistance with things they cannot handle. Confidence in the face of fear. Be their Strong Protector. Thank you Blessed Savior. Amen

    I do not support abortion, nor any act that inflict pain and suffering on God's creation, that includes animals .
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 12:6
    I never understand Why people want to know what Not Canonized scripture means?

    WHY is not the King James Bible good enough for you?

    I'm not going to search the world over, for your answers. If the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ (the WORD of GOD) aren't good enough for you to believe in

    Go YE and search Google

  • Sherrie Skowron on Revelation 1
    I would like to know is it a sin to be creamated? I was told those that are creamated go to hell and burn for eternity. It scares me I don't know what to do now. My husband was creamated and I was going to be so our daughter has us both. Please give me a true answer. I don't want to burn for eternity. I try hard my biggest sin is I smoke. Please pray for me and find me a way to quit. I've tried smoking stuff to quit & quit cold turkey and started back up a year ago and up to 2 packs & want to quit bad before i have a stroke or heart attack. I've been smoking over 45 yrs.please pray hard for me. Thank you with all my heart in advance.

    I'm not certain. But also, just because you're someone's cousin doesn't mean you'll automatically know them.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Just Live your conscience, and participate in our Country's process to make those views public and Heard.

    I was confronted today by a 20yr old telling me, a 60++ yr old, that she had just voted the first time. Then she sorta ranted about how all the 20 somethings we're casting ballots to replace what we have. Whoopee. I think some of that "hate" is directed against Godly people too. I told her I was a Christian and believed in issues; not solidarity.

    I just listened, sadly. These are the same people who will take Antichrists Mark, to prove they will not be controlled by God anymore.

    Parents, do explain how the system works. We pick the leader who follows Gods principals.... in a perfect world.

    Last night I looked up cultures who sacrifice children, and it's a sad sad thing to know Moloch still lives in hearts.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Your questions do come at a very appropriate time, particularly as we see so much of what God's Word speaking of sins & wrongs we commit, being treated as normal, acceptable behaviour in society. And yes, wherever possible Christians should speak out against abortion, homosexuality, easy pardon for criminals (being let out into society to inflict more pain & death on innocent people), and many more.

    If the world doesn't hear our objections to these wicked acts of men, then they will have nothing to alert them or deter them from their wicked course. Most likely our stand will 'fall on deaf ears', but as the prophets of old had to declare God's warnings, so should we make His Word & Will known wherever & whenever we can. See Ezekiel 3:17-21 for the heavy burden that was upon Ezekiel to warn the people & the consequences that came to him if he did not do so. Some use placards on streets or in front of abortion clinics, or through articles in media or advertisements, or just in conversation when the subject comes up. Our witness for righteousness must be clear even if it means that our words are considered as foolish & against society's wishes. Our words, lives & actions will never resemble the world's, nor should they ever come close - we are children of God & not of the World.

    Yes, it would be wrong to vote for leaders who support abortion, homosexuality, & a host of other evils, but one has to decide whether the fitness of that leader or the party he/she represents is also worthy of your vote. This is a very difficult decision to make especially for believers, especially in light of the upcoming U.S. elections, with some Christians refusing to vote on those grounds or even opting to support a Christian party, even these often don't fall in line with God's requirements, especially in this area of abortion.

    I hope you get some other useful thoughts on this important subject.
  • Kelli Jackson - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    It is very wrong to abortion a baby. This means that you are telling God, "God, I don't want this precious child you have allowed to give me. No thanks." The Bible says that children are a blessing and gift from God. I would encourage every parent who thinks of doing abortion to NOT do it. You will not only regret it, but it will forever change your life. Don't do it.
  • David on Proverbs 9
    Somewhere I have a big collection of Bibles but since moving house I can't yet find them.

    When I started reading the Book of Proverbs I had expect a list of everyday good advice but the Book isn't easy reading.
  • Ruth - in Reply on Psalms 122
    Mishael - I took my mum to a third podiatrist today for an opinion about her ingrown toe nail, previous two said how bad it looked, I was so concerned. I decided if this one advised surgery we'd have it done. Driving there this morning I just thought "Trust in God" and I was - also being prepared to be told surgery necessary. At the clinic the podiatrist was so gentle with mum and told me the toe nail was fine no surgery necessary and said the complete opposite to previous two!! Nothing short of a miracle in my opinion. I thanked God - and my sweet mum has been smiling since and looks comfortable. I do pray but think my trust is often overshadowed due to my worrying - hence putting in prayer request. Hopefully this miracle will energise my faith/trust. Thank you for your prayer.

    No problem. As Adam left you a link to a page. When you are in the KJV 1611 section, click up at top of this page, use the index finder to the right. When you put in the book and chapter you want to look at. Then click the red arrow. It will come up in text. Scroll down a little and you will see the picture of the page to the right. Click on it and your in. Click on it again and it gets even bigger. Have fun!

    I do believe that in Our Father's House they are many mansions . . . at the moment we sow in tears, but soon we will reap joyfully . Baba, we thank Thee today , for all your mercies . I pray that God relieve us, as His Family, whilst we loose our Loved ones . God, let your Holiness stay with us, as we are orphans without you . I REALLY LOVE YOU LORD > Please give me peace within my heart ALWAYS .

    >nothing to do with what you did or didnt do

    Hi Jackie, I believe salvation absolutely has to do with what we do or don't do. The reason I believe that is the entire gospel is based on someone taking action. People who do nothing by default will go to hell. Jesus says you must believe. That is an action. He calls people to follow Him- that's an action. He calls people to repent and confess of their sin- that's an action. Loving is an action. Acting like a Christian is an action. God gave us the gift of freewill to choose, which is an action. He loved us enough to give us a choice to follow Him. Good works are not bad. I hear some people saying it's bad to be good and that seems to have the stamp of the devil on it. While it's true we're saved by grace and not by works, we don't have grace if we don't believe or follow Jesus in the first place.

    It's possible you meant good works only by your comment, but my point is that our actions absolutely determine where we're going. If it didn't, Jesus would not have spent so much time telling parables about how most people will go to hell and how to avoid that, and to avoid sin, and don't be of this world. There's been false teachings spread around lately among Christians who are saying it's totally ok to sin and be in the world and that's the opposite of what the Bible says.

    God bless...

  • Sis Jackie for 1 john 1 - in Reply on 1 John 1
    Faith comes by hearing the word of God and believing to the point of trust: Jesus is the Word, made flesh; He is alive today by the word ( the Bible).He not a man that he should lie!! - He is the Truth at all times. He fullfilled the plan of God for everyone John 3:16. Oh! ,what a Gift - Life and being reconciled to our Father. (please read Romans chapter 5) Joy will cause jumping .,skipping and crying, but this joy ALSO gives peace ,down on the inside because of the truth (He gave us his Word ) So when the devil come in the middle of the night to accuse you, He(the devil) is doing what he got put out of heaven for.(Revelation12:10 ). It's not knowing in your intelligence what Jesus has done for you, but in your spirit by the word of God; then receive it, into your heart that it may grow in your born-again spirit

    And if you believe and know by how your life has changed from within (your desires has changed) Just think Born Again-Old things passed away- a babe in Christ- seek the word like a baby seeks milk - eat it!!!!!!! the word..A new baby dont try to figure it out He/she is just happy to be alive...in your case alive in Christ ;because without Christ there is no Life....I thank God and His son, Jesus for you, The Angel rejoice at your salvation ,Me too...rejoice with us..for the gift you have received you are saved by graced..that not of yourself. It had

    nothing to do with what you did or didnt do...Its not your righteousnes that makes us acceptable but the imputed righteousness of our Savior Jesus The Christ..It was by faith in the word...and the work of Jesus on the Cross. The devil is Lying again !!!

    Read:Romans 5:8 - St John 17 chapt. Ephesian 2:8 Ephesian2:5..Jesus knows our end back to the beginning.....REJOICE! .REJOICE !

    LET US ALL HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAYS..IT'S ONLY ONE CHURCH- FIND YOURSELF IN THE 7; Revelation 1-3 Lets Pay special attention to the church in Sardis
  • Adam - in Reply on John 10:36
    Hi Mike,

    The 1611 KJV is literally from 1611 A.D. the very first printing of it and it shows the actual scans of it, so you can compare and figure out anything that has changed. Of course the meaning hasn't changed, but the English language has actually changed a lot in 400 years, so it the KJV was adjusted to match the current language.

    Link

    You can do a parallel view of each chapter to see the differences:

    Thank you again for your reply, you said you have every page photographed. I am having trouble finding these page photos. I found images of the bible but how do I look up 1st peter kjv page photos for and example?
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on John 10:36
    Hello Mike,

    Hopefully I can help with a couple of your questions. The KJV is the best, oldest, version of the Bible we have. One thing that is quiet awesome of this site is when you look in the 1611 KJV section. They have every single page photographed, and posted here, of an original 1611 KJV Bible. Very cool. Many of the newer versions have had things removed and words changed. As the KJV is the oldest English Bible. So with just a couple of the verses you have. In Luke 19:23 the word they made "bank" was the original Greek word "trapeza" transliterated from Greek. This word means "a table or stool" or "a table or stand of a money changer to count money". The word is used thirteen times, in the New Testament, for "table" and just once for "bank". Seems ok instead of saying maybe "my money onto the money changers table". The other one is Isaiah 11:6. It has always been "wolf also shall dwell with the lamb". As you have "the young lion and the fatling together" in the same verse. Along with "the lion shall eat straw like the ox" in the next verse. The lion and the lamb thing was actually started in a song way back and got popular. Spreading but it was always "wolf also shall dwell with the lamb".

    Hope that helps some. God Bless.
