  • Alex on Psalms 28
    Comments by Alex on Praise, Outa of the Mouths of babes and sucklings thou has PERFECTED Praise, man's hearts are too carnal, Remember Jesus said out of the hearts of man proceeds all manner of evil,thus we need a new heart and a new spirit which is the result of the word of God th seed of the sower being bornagain of an incorruptible seed even by the word of God that liveth and abideth for ever the living WORD, Thus we are gona birth a new innerman which is the H.G. And Jesus is the father of that heavenly Child simply b/c its his seed that brings on this new heavenly being born in our hearts.Jesus said that satan is the father of the tares b/c he is the one who sows that evil seed thus its Christ that is the Father of the wheat simply b/c its Christ who sows that heavenly seed which is the very seed of God to whom the word came it made them Gods which makes the H.G the Granson the beginning of n ISRAEL OF GOD, behold me and the CHILDREN His offspring . Christ is not impotent he has a seed to sow in humanity, US SINNERS But his seed is not the seed of humans he sows the very seed of God in US SINNERS, the Child is the H.G. that CHILD OF PROMISE ,Whosoever receiveth one such Child in my Name Receiveth Me Remember he said the FATHER is gonna send the H.G IN MY NAME IMPLING HE IS THE FATHER OF THE H.G. the manchild that is gonna rule all nations,Thats how he will rule ALL NATIONS he is gonna be born in the hearts of ever man, remember Jeremiah saw all men in travail and birth PAINS in fact 27 times in the O.T. the prophets saw the WORLD in travail and birth pains.Even in the natural we come into this world in our fathers NAME. Thats y we keep our fathers last name . its indicative of our bloodline. Isaiah wd not refer to Christ as everlasting Father if he were not the FATHER of the H.G. The Children of PROMISE. The Original Promise was the multiplcation of Christ, Thats y he is saying whosoever receiveth one such ChilD in my name receiveth ME. Our new birth etc.
  • Rob on Malachi 4
    It's said in 2 Timothy 4 v 3,4

    That people will not endure sound doctrine but will turn to teachers that basically tell them what they want to hear so they can indulge in their lists and have salvation too .

    It's said in the gospels by Jesus that straight is the gate and narrow is the way , but wide and easy is the way to destruction and Many or the majority follow it . Because they don't want the hard path , deception is so sweet at first . That's what temptation was to eve ! But we know what happened , they lost their paradise .

    The purpose is that if just one sinner repents ! Heaven rejoices .

    If they all take the wide road , no rejoicing .

  • Jerry England on Revelation 13:2
    Witch of the heads do the extra three horns go with and do all 7 heads have the same mouth?
  • Nancy Edwards on Proverbs 2
    Thank you for answering the question I had regarding the Holy Spirit. Now if He doesn't have a body in Heaven what happens to Him since He is an eternal member of the God head? When He is no longer needed on earth? Thank you for even bothering to respond. Nancy.
  • David w parker on Proverbs 1
    just found this bible study , im trying to read a proverb everyday and love this thank you
  • ERECH CHRIST NIMROD on James 1:19
    BELOVED Brothers and Sisters, Father God gave Us two ears and one mouth and a Wise, Revolutionary Mind like Our Victorious Brother Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:18). "Wherefore, my BELOVED brethren, let every man [and woman] be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath." -James 1:19. Amen.
  • 1 Thessalonians 1.8,9

    Here we see the Apostle Paul an example of true leadership , expressing his genuine care for those in Thessalonians churches .

    Verse 9 he labored so that no one could accuse him of personal gain , made his own way , not even appearing to be taking advantage of them , which was not the case in reality . This is very good fruit .

    Never give money to anyone for their service to God , it makes them look bad . And if it's their motive they are bad . It's not wrong to help people but be careful on how it's done . Pure motive in the work of the gospel is not at all concerned about money or gain. God supplies .

    It can even be a temptation sometimes to except gain for doing Gods work , discernment is needed .
  • Rob on Ezra 1
    Beware , many commentary's if you check out their verses do not apply to the subject but are out of context . Some people think that using many verses makes their view valid , on the contrary it's just something not worth reading .

    I recently ask for A single absolute solid verse on the Pretrib Rapture event , they went to some google website provided tons of commentary and some verses , yet not a single verse in context to the subject . These people don't know what they are reading or I understand the Bible . Miss applicant is false . Why do they do it ? Trying to get a following , maybe for personal gain . Never give money to anyone doing this . Is wrong to support such activities in any case . So many of these tv evangelist are just in it for the money , a motive for getting a following .

    You are much better off reading the Bible in prayer to the Lord for understanding. You learn bit by bit so be patient , don't buy the lies from false teachers .
  • Stephen Levi on Ezra 1
    I have read through a lot of the post made here and most everything

    you all have stated is outright incorrect.

    Very little of it is in the truth of God.

    For example if you commit a sin you are a servant to sin.

    There is no exceptions to it. NONE!

    John 8:34 Jesus answered them, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

    Do you believe the children of God commit sin and are the servants of sin?

    If you do then not only are you a child of the devil but you are a deceived child of the devil.

    And if you willfully commit a sin there is sacrifice for it.

    There is no exceptions to it. NONE!

    Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth,

    there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.

    Do you believe the children of God commits sin willfully after that they have received the knowledge of the truth?

    If you do then not only are you a child of the devil but you are a deceived child of the devil.

    And if you sin you do not have the Holy Spirit.

    You have the unholy spirit.

    Hence why they call it the Holy Spirit for it is HOLY!

    Sin is not HOLY!

    Born Again Sinners

    Disobedient Believers of God

    The Christian world is full of them. What do you think is going to happen to them in the end?

    If it were possible would any of you want to cease from committing any sin?

    Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 29:2
    This was the very thing on my mind yesterday, Matthew. With all that's going on here on Earth & as we rapidly head towards a major upheaval, if not the advent of the anti-Christ, I was thinking of those redeemed from the Earth & their view of anything outside of Heaven.

    I can't give any specific Scriptures to help understand this as the Bible doesn't generally deal with departed souls having any interest or view of earthly matters. We do have a couple of other separate portions as seen in 1 Samuel chapter 28 (some see this as the real Samuel being called up, others see it as an impersonating spirit) & Luke 16:19-31, where the rich man in Hades has concern for his maybe equally sinful brothers. But how these two portions of Scripture help in knowing whether our departed loved ones have knowledge of Earth's affairs is uncertain. Maybe, they will look keenly as to how the Word/prophecies of the Lord are being accomplished on the Earth as declared by the Lord.

    But to spend their time focused on worldly events & family/friends on Earth instead of worshipping of the Lord, delighting in His Presence & Glory & attending to Heaven's activities, may be like the earthling with his face buried in his phone oblivious to what's happening around him. Can't see that happening in Heaven. Just my musings.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Just to add to Adam's great word of encouragement to you: your declaration of your love to the Lord is very real as is your grief over this besetting sin that has its hold on you. All I can say is, you're not going to Hell as you have laid your heart bare to the Lord over this matter & are constantly in prayer about it, demonstrating your sorrow. Those destined for Hell are those who reject God's Love in Jesus & those who give no regard to committing sin as if God doesn't notice. You are well aware of it & troubled by it & that is the work of the Spirit in you.

    God sees the anguish of our spirits over sin - that's why He sends His Spirit to be in you - and God doesn't demand our correct articulating of our needs or what words we use in prayer. God the Spirit & God the Father, are One - they are not independent of each other - what One feels so does the Other; what One knows so does the Other. His help may come just in an instant, or it may be through another person or another means, or it might even be what He puts in your heart to do. Look for it, persist in reading the Word, using the Spirit's Sword against the enemy of our souls, avoid the thoughts or actions, or places that might lead you to that area of weakness causing sin.

    It is through our hatred of sin, our resisting the Devil, our avoiding of his traps, that we find the Power of God into victory. Some believe that to just rest back, do nothing about sin, & wait for God's Help is the way to victory. This never works - we have to be proactive in dealing with sin. Even if that one awful sin is finally dealt a death blow, we know the father of sins is not far away to bring on another. So dear sister, be watchful & know you're in a battle, but you are not alone in it - your Lord is engaged with you in all that afflicts you.
  • Christopher Pinckney on Genesis 2:9
    I found the answer to my question. I should have read chapter 2 of Genesis. Thank you for your time.
  • Christopher Pinckney on Genesis 1
    How was Eve created? What I have read or heard, I don't remember, is that Adam was placed in a deep seep and GOD created Eve with one of Adam's ribs. Is that true? and if so. where can I find that information, in the Bible?
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 1
    Nancy, the Scripture I like in respect to what you've asked is in Ephesians 1:13,14: "In whom (Jesus) ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom (Jesus) also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory."

    The verse reminds us that after we heard the Gospel & subsequently put our trust (faith) in Jesus, we were immediately given God's Seal of Promise. And this came to us through His Gift of His Spirit into our lives. And this was absolutely necessary to happen, as the Spirit's Presence is the "earnest" (the guarantee) of our inheritance: inheritance of our new relationship to the Godhead, of all of God's Blessings, Power, Joy & Peace and the guarantee that God would never leave us or forsake us, just as God promised in His Word: Deuteronomy 13:6 & the direct NT quote in Hebrews 13:5. And this Promise is fully seen by the presence of the Spirit in the lives of God's children.

    But Ephesians 1:14 goes on to say that this "sealing" & this "guarantee" by the Spirit is only until "the redemption of the purchased possession". I understand this to mean that when we finally get to Heaven (& indeed, 'what a day of rejoicing that will be'), the Spirit's presence will no longer be indwelling us as we will be in the presence of God & His Son Jesus. Jesus, in Heaven right now, is seated at His Father's right Hand & in the Body (now glorified) He had on Earth. And so we too shall be (1 John 3:2) in the day of our translation (Rapture) when both those alive & dead in Christ arise to be with the Lord forever.

    So our Redemption comes in two phases: redemption of our spiritual entity, when our spirits once given over to serving Satan, now have been redeemed by Christ's Blood to belong to & serve our Holy God. And redemption of the physical, when our bodies are transformed to live with Him.
  • Mark Briggsford - in Reply on Luke 14:26
    Not one of you understands this. Jesus Christ said you will be hated by all, and that is the sign of a true prophet. If you don't hate even your own life...?

    If you don't pick up your Cross daily...?

    Jesus Christ never told anyone to hate anything but evil.
  • Tim on Mark 15
    Verse 42 is very interesting....The day begins at sunset for Jews..... So Joseph asked for Jesus' body on what would be Thursday evening since the Sabbath starts at Sundown on Friday evening.....He would not ask for it on the Sabbath.......Additionally, it was during passover....So this Friday would have still been a day when they could do no preparations because it was during passover.....With the Sabbath ending Saturday at sunset, and Jesus being raised in the morning of the first day of the week, this makes sense....He died in Thursday afternoon, and rise in Sunday morning....
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Hi Ronald, thank you for your comment & when I saw your quote, Galatians 2:20, I remembered that that was my key verse when sharing my testimony at a Nazarene Church while serving with a Christian Mission in Dewsbury, U.K. So that came as a precious reminder & one to reflect upon. And you're quite right, I think most of us contributing on this Site, won't take personal credit for what we share, as we write what we understand from God's Holy Word & being led of His Spirit. I realize that others could say the same, yet interpret the Word quite differently, which of course gives different points of view for others to consider. However, we come, I trust, with a real sense of brotherly unity in diversity because of our 'common' faith. We could never claim to be the repository of Truth, but to declare what the Word says with the Light we've received.

    No, I'm not a pastor - just a lowly child of the King, ever amazed as to "why, unworthy as I am, (God) claimed me for His own". (From the hymn, "I know not why God's wondrous Grace"). I live in Perth, Australia, having experienced a mighty conviction & moving of the Spirit in October 1979 whilst in my quarters in the Air Force in Canberra. My life of unbridled sin was brought before me, receiving a special piercing visit by God's Spirit that brought me to my knees in tears. And in a moment those tears turned to joy as His confirmation & peace filled me, so if anyone should've entered the room, I would have been deemed a ripe candidate for urgent psychological help.

    I have shared many Bible studies over the years, particularly during my time in Pakistan & India, but now am retired in Perth, the city my family moved to from India 54 years ago. Anyway, that's a quick brief to give you some background but to also acknowledge the great value of the many others who also share here, of what the Lord has revealed to them in their studies in the Word.

    Hi Randall, looks like you were able to post just fine. Most comments more than 1 month old can't be replied to (locked) to encourage people to start a new thread. It works out better that way. God bless you!
  • Randall Bunton on Revelation 16:16
    Why is the comment locked? The red letter in the KJV bible is the truth. To suggest Jesus would have his disciples slaughtered with no defense is wrong. He blinded Saul on the road to Damascus to protect his flock. People must be able to defend themselves against evil. He literally meant they must defend themselves and their families against the demonic powers that exist on the Earth. Jesus never bowed the knee to any king or devil on the Earth. Christians must follow his Divine teaching and warnings. For the days are indeed evil. Anyone that believes Jesus was a non-violent advocate like Martin Luther King do not believe his prophecy. I will follow the Nazarene no matter what "scholars" say to twist his word. Antichrist is still here as in the time of Jesus. The carpenter was no weakling trying to compromise good and evil. He stood firm and we must also.
  • Mishael On Leviticus 2016 - in Reply on Leviticus 20:16
    This is from a Commentary on Google. It shows the seriousness of perversion. In most cases it's a death sentence.

    Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament:

    Whoever cursed father or mother was to be punished with death (Leviticus 19:3); "His blood would be upon him." The CURSING of parents was a capital crime (see at Leviticus 17:4, and for the plural Exodus 22:1 and Genesis 4:10), which was to return upon the doer of it, according to Genesis 9:6. The same punishment was to be inflicted upon ADULTERY (Leviticus 20:10, cf. Leviticus 18:20), carnal intercourse with a father's wife (Leviticus 20:11, cf. Leviticus 18:7-8) or with a daughter-in-law (Leviticus 20:12, cf. Leviticus 18:17), SODOMY (Leviticus 20:13, cf. Leviticus 18:22), sexual intercourse with a mother and her daughter, in which case the punishment was to be heightened by the burning of the criminals when put to death (Leviticus 20:14, cf. Leviticus 18:17), lying (mating) with a beast (Leviticus 20:15, Leviticus 20:16, cf. Leviticus 18:23), sexual intercourse with a half-sister (Leviticus 20:17, cf. Leviticus 18:9 and Leviticus 18:11), and lying with a menstruous woman (Leviticus 20:18, cf. Leviticus 18:19). The punishment of death, which was to be inflicted in all these cases upon both the criminals, and also upon the beast that had been abused (Leviticus 20:15, Leviticus 20:16), was to be by stoning, according to Leviticus 20:2, Leviticus 20:27, and Deuteronomy 22:21.; and by the burning (Leviticus 20:14) we are not to understand death by fire, or burning alive, but, as we may clearly see from Joshua 7:15 and Joshua 7:25, burning the corpse after death. This was also the case in Leviticus 21:9 and Genesis 38:24.

  • The Holy Spirit - in Reply on Proverbs 1
    The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Christ. He is Spirit. I haven't seen anything that tells us he has or will have a physical body.

    His presence will not be as strong on the earth when the Church of Jesus; His Bride, is caught up in the clouds to meet Jesus.

    It will be hard for people left behind to be saved. It will be totally in faith; they will pray and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior.

    If people take the mark of the Beast to get food and internet: they are doomed already. Their choice has already been recorded in Heavens Book.

    Everyone I know falls in love with Jesus through the Holy Spirit. In Genesis where Abraham sends forth "his servant" to find Isaac a wife: I see the Holy Spirit (as the Masters servant). It's a beautiful story.
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Dear Diane, the fact that you care and are concerned enough to post a prayer request shows where your heart is. That's a good thing. Christians are not immune to temptation, sin, and spiritual strongholds, but should try to do everything in your power to break them. Paul was a strong Christian, but still described how he struggled with the fleshly temptations of sin. There are general Christian addition support groups through church like Celebrate Recovery that may offer helpful support. Ephesians 6:10-18

    It is my belief that if you have become a Christian (Link and genuinely following Christ then by definition you are Christian and are saved by grace and can have confidence in your salvation. 1 John 5:13. Hebrews 4:16, Philippians 4:13. I believe following Christ is an active pursuit and we always have room to grow and mature and be more like Him.

    God bless...
  • Matthew Gregory Langster on Proverbs 29:2
    Will those who have transitioned know what's going on on earth?
  • You need to remember this verse and memorize it !
  • Robert DeHaan - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    The Holy Spirit shared this very thing you have said, that I pled the blood that Jesus has covered my healing. I thank you for taking time for sharing Christ's promises that were given at the Cross. I appreciate your encouragement and that we share in the strength of our Lord.
  • Nancy Edwards on Proverbs 1
    Please could you tell me when we Believers get to Heaven will we see the Holy Spirit as a real person or is He only just inside of us forever? Thank you for reading this as I am so grateful. Nancy Edwards.

    I do not understand clearly what this scripture means. I would like a response please.

  • Growing Your Faith To Be Healed - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Then Jesus said to the disciples, "Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you've received it, it will be yours. But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.Mark 11:22-25

    The prayer of faith is important because it is the key to having your prayers answered. You can't effect Spirit-led change in your life and in the lives of those around you without faith. On the other hand, with faith, Jesus says, "you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you've received it, it will be yours." Faith finds out what the Word has to say, prays in accordance with that Word and believes regardless of pain & circumstances.

    I'm told my back needs surgery. I told my doc, it doesn't hurt. I choose to believe in God. She smirks slightly.

    So when I feel the aches, I plead the Blood of Jesus over it until it stops. If it restarts I do it again. Your faith is centered solely on Jesus as you do that. Your faith is getting bigger than the pain. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

    I am not going to give satan any ground to rejoice! The blood of Jesus is full payment for all of my sins and neglect of my body when I was young. Our pain IS under the Blood of Jesus. No devil is going to touch that Blood.

    I'm going to pray that the Lord will give skill and concentration on your surgery. I pray the Lord to guide your surgeons hands. I ask the Lord to heal every wounded nerve in your back and cause them to be replaced by new ones! Amen!

    You, dear one, you thank Jesus for daily mending. Step into the healing of his blood every time you feel a twinge. May your faith grow huge.
