    A lot of out of work people have turned to the grocery store industry. If he can stick with it thru probation, he will get insurance and healthcare benefits. I meet many sweet people in produce. If he can get his foot in the door, he can move around later.

    Just stay on good terms with the boss and always come in to work a bit early. They like that. Shows enthusiasm. Become the boss's go to guy.

    Don't allow Satan to destroy your hope. He wants to steal, kill and destroy us. Tell him to get out and go into dry places, in the Name of Jesus! You're an heir to the King; not what you FEEL about yourself. Repent and walk towards Jesus again. He loves you!

    Find scriptures that support your faith and underline in pencil. Speak these out in a loud voice every day!

    Satan and his demons need to hear that they lost another one again.

    Ask the Holy Spirit to come alongside of you and anoint your job search. Thank him every day. Trusting in God is easy. Even when things appear impossible. With God, ALL things are possible to him that believes He is a rewarder of those that diligently, seek Him. Don't give up. Push forward.

    I agree with you for this request to receive answer. Ask God to allow angels to assist you. Sunup to sundown. Don't stop praying now. Mishael

    Teresa, thank you for your comments which truly expressed your heart's desire to know your loving Heavenly Father, His precious Son & His ever-caring Holy Spirit. Jesse too has shared intimately with you & also will provide you the correct guidance you seek; so I will leave off here & not add to the body of this thread - but I'll stay tuned!

    Remember, if you have any questions about what you read in the Bible (& there will be many I'm sure), do write in, as it seems that you have been 'in the dark' about God's Plan & Purposes for you for too long. Jesse, others, & myself also continually read God's Word so as to gain His Light (i.e. learn what He is saying to us today from the Bible) so that we know Him more, love Him more, & be confident & joyful when we one day will be in His Presence. So what we share with you is only because of what He has shown to us first and isn't that really the Heart of God: to bring us first to salvation from the penalty of our sins, that we should grow in knowledge of Him & also to share this with others that they may also know Him & the greatness of His Love for them?

    And very true, God's Word (even through good Devotionals), will truly minister to your heart's needs & will give His Special Word for you today so that you may always be confident that He is with you, to help you & lead you in this journey He has blessed you with. May the Lord bless you & your loved ones there & help you in your 'new' walk in His Light & Truth found only in His Word.

    Thank you! I am reading your words as well as reread Chris's. So that my husband could experience this.

    I am overwhelmed by the kindness that you both has bestowed upon me. I would very much appreciate being taught through your knowledge.

    If space becomes a issue. I am more than happy to communicate via email. Being that there is no character counts.

    Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts

    Teresa,

    What I wanted to add is that when you do begin your study, do not let it discourage you if don't understand everything you read. I've yet to meet anyone who can honestly say they know the entire bible. If we knew it all, we wouldn't have to study. When I first began, it was on and off that I would pick up the bible and read it. After a while, I developed a hunger for it and could not stay away for very long. You will probably experience that also. That's a good thing because that hunger and desire comes from God's Spirit drawing you to His word and giving you that hunger.

    But when I began, I wanted to know it all. I used to get frustrated when I didn't understand what I was reading. There are still things I can read and not understand fully. I am going to say that that's normal and here's why: I come to realize that God is only going to reveal to me what He knows I am ready to handle.

    Before you begin, it is important to open your study in prayer asking the Lord to reveal to you what He wants you to know. I stopped getting frustrated when I couldn't understand something, even after asking God to reveal it to me. Why? Because I know knowledge only comes through Him, and if I don't get it, it's because He knows I'm not ready for it yet. And I am at peace with that.

    I tried sending you a link to my webpage where I presented a bible study of the entire New Testament but this site will not let me send a link. I thought I would give it a try since not too long ago someone was able to share their YouTube page here. However, I need to abide by the rules of this site.

    God Bless!!!

    Paul,

    This word stiffnecked is also found in Acts 7:51. It says you stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears. That's not a great way to start out if you're trying to win friends! Stiffnecked? We've heard that before and all of us have actually experienced waking up some morning with a stiff neck.

    But that's not what it means. In those days, they called a person a "stiffneck "person when they refused to bow. And someone would come over to them and grab them by the back of the neck and try to make them bow and they would stiffen up and refuse to bow. That's where the term stiffnecked comes from.

    A "stiffnecked" person is a person who refuses to bow to the lordship of Christ.
  • Matthew 1112 Violent Faith - in Reply
    I have never said that to anyone before yesterday. It's about building up faith on scripture alone. It will not work in the flesh.

    I Corinthians 14:1, 20, 19, 39: teaches that To prophesy (speak forth the Word of God) edifies everyone.

    If our lives are a Valley of Dry bones, we will not see any life until we speak correctly to the situation.

    I know that passage is NOT our usual prayer lesson. It's what Ezekiel was to pray over the House of Israel. But it's also a principal and it's not forbidden to speak out to dead situations. It gets our faith in God all stirred up. It's not going to work for financial gain that will corrupt us.

    I wish the Gentile churches would pray this over Israel's Jews: to come together and stand up for God! All I ever hear is condemnation for them.

    We are living in the end of days. I pray the Lords Prayer always. I insert personal mentions for things I need (not want).

    The kingdom suffers violence, and the violent take it by force (Matthew 11:12). We need violent faith to fight against viruses, lack, fear and it's torments. The principals were always there. Intercessory prayer and standing in the gap have always been in the Bible. Luke 10:18-20

    I am not remarkable. I did have a Damascus Road salvation experience. All I know is Jesus. They are here with us. All they say is truth. They are everything the Bible says about them. We are the Bride of Christ. He's going to catch us up and then we'll be coming back with Jesus; riding beside Him. Everything written will come to the Light of Truth.

    I'm not the only one. There are many like me out there shaking Heaven with our faith and prayers. Believe. Let your faith out of the box.

    stiffnecked = stubborn, rebellious, sin

    Exodus 34:9 And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our SIN sin, and take us for thine inheritance.

    2 Chronicles 30:8 Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but YIELD yield yourselves unto the LORD, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and SERVE serve the LORD your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you.

    Acts 7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always RESIST resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 7:1
    If satan has the power to go back in time and change the bible (Mandela effect) then he is more powerful than the Lord.

    at least those who push this ridiculous theory want us to believe.

    God promised to PRESERVE his words and if things were changed, then He failed.

    Example: Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

    The "lion shall lay down with the lamb" is a lyric made popular by the 1937 song, "Peace in the Valley" written by Thomas A. Dorsey

    Lion with lamb was a song

    It was first made popular by Red Foley and the Sunshine Boys in 1951 after being recorded by Sam Cooke of the Soul Stirrers in 1950 and rising to limited success. But it wasn't until Elvis Presley recorded the song on his first Christmas Album with the Jordanaires that "Peace in the Valley" received worldwide fame.

    On January 6, 1957, Elvis sang "Peace in the Valley" on the Ed Sullivan Show,

    After the popularity of Elvis' rendition of the song, many ministers around the nation began integrating the lyrics into their sermons. that is what many remember.
  • Jmunizjr on Isaiah 1
    Verse three speaks of an ox knowing his master and a donkey his masters crib. Jesus says we must love God with our mind. Paul says we must have an answer for the hope within us.

    These three provoke, if you will, us to learn who God is. Paul in Romans 1 warns us against bringing God down from the heavens and making Him like things on the earth. We might try to make Him who we want Him to be in our minds but He will not change. He is God and He calls the shots.

    If He is our God then we should be learning who He is. If we believe enough then we should not entrust anyone to tell us who He is but should get to know Him for ourselves.

    This is relationship. We have pastors and teachers to help.
  • Bob on Genesis 16
    Sarai gave Hagar to Abram for a wife so they could have a child by surrogacy. A great honour for Hagar being the second wife of a great Chieftain. Impatience though and not waiting for Gods promise would have lasting problems but the merciful God blessed the boy anyway and made him into the mighty Arab nation. Unfortunately modern Arabs are abandoning the God of Ishmael for the god of Mohammad. Salvation through Jesus was meant for them as well but many have chosen another religion which will take them nowhere and violently.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Teresa,

    I am more than happy to help both you and your husband out. You mention being passionate when it comes to your faith in the Lord. But I have to ask, have you ever received Christ? Have you been born of His Spirit? That has to come first. I say this because in all the years I spent in church, I never knew what it meant to receive Christ.

    Those in the church would say that they receive Him every week during communion, but that is not what the bible teaches. In order to fully understand scripture, a person must be born of God's Spirit. The bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 2:14 that the natural man (unsaved) cannot understand the things of God because they are spiritually discerned. This tells us that only God's Spirit can reveal to us the things of God.

    As far as where to begin in the bible, I can only suggest what worked for me. I began with the New Testament. Even today, that is where I spend most of my time. The gospels would be a good place. John is my favorite of the gospels. John Chapter 15 is my favorite chapter in John. It speaks about Jesus being the genuine vine, and we being the branches, and apart from Him, we cannot do one thing. Basically, apart from Him, we are spiritually dead. It's such a beautiful chapter. As far as salvation goes, the book of Romans lays it all out. The book has been called "The Constitution of The Christian Faith" by some. If we only had the book of Romans, we would have everything we need.

    You and your husband's salvation are very important and you both need to know in your heart that you are saved. I think any believer here would agree that the greatest love we can show to you is to be concerned for your spiritual welfare. That is called Agape love. It is the love that Jesus Christ gives us. He gives us Himself. And only through Him can we share that love with others.

    I'm out of space so I will send another page.

    This is prophecy of The Lord Jesus Christ. treading the great winepress of GOD. Remember Revelation 19:13

    Isaiah 63:3

    I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 12
    Those are found in 1 Corinthians 12

    1 Corinthians 13, 1 Corinthians 14. They are given to us by the Holy Spirit. (You can open those links)

    We are to covet the best gifts; but for me I think the Holy Spirit should choose.

    I'm sure you can google how the gifts have operated in some people's lives. We can learn how the gifts operate through Jesus, in our Bible. I personally think that spiritual discernment is most helpful.

    Notice verse 13

    Revelation 19:11-16

    The Heavenly Warrior Defeats the Beast

    11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter."[a] He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

    king of kings and lord of lords.
  • Amber Asher - in Reply on 2 Esdras 16:69
    This verse is referring to The Great winepress of GOD spoken about in Revelation 11:20

    69


    And they that consent unto them shall be had in derision and in reproach, and trodden under foot.

    See Revelation 14:14-

    Harvesting the Earth and Trampling the Winepress

    14 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, "Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe." 16 So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested. 17 Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. 18 Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, "Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth's vine, because its grapes are ripe." 19 The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God's wrath. 20 They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses' bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.

  • Joseph Perry - in Reply
    These suggestions a nice, but may I suggest a different one?

    Matthew 6:5-15

    "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

    But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

    After this manner therefore pray ye:

    Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    Give us this day our daily bread.

    And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

    For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

    But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

    Recognize the majesty and authority of God . . .

    Rely upon God for your day to day needs.

    A part of conversion is a gift from the Holy Ghost, this should be a change in attitude that allows you to say, "I once was, but now I am"

    Express your needs and desires. These may be areas that require attention

    Thank him for the Teachings of Jesus.

    I found it necessary to explain my use of the King James Version:

    The language used is modern enough to be easily understood but old enough to remind me of the Majesty of God. We must focus on those things that are important.

    The spring equinox is also called the "Great Gate"

    Kings were anointed on the 1st day of the 7th month (Yom Teruah)

    God so loved NUMBERS that He named an entire Book by them!

    Enoch lived 365 years. His son Methuselah lived 187 years and had Lamech. (There are 187 days between the spring and fall equinox).

    364-187 = 177

    There are 177 days between any 6 month lunar time period. There are 177 days between Passover and Tabernacles.

    Lamech lived 182 years and begat Noah. There are 182 days in a year.

    Lamech lived 777 years. 364 x 2 = 728 (+49 = 777) Jared lived 162 years and begat Enoch.

    Sorry, I had a feeling that would happen. Hope you enjoyed it!

    This year the Sabbath is on Monday.

    Chris Solar Calendar

    Page 3

    The "Calendar week" is days 4 thru 3 while the "Creation week" is days 1 thru 7

    Sabbath days remain constant on the Enoch calendar in relation to the spring equinox; but they will rotate on the Gregorian calendar. We now have the privilege of these (Sacred) Books, look at (Micah 6:8).

    Enoch lived 365 years (and possibly .242)

    The spring equinox is the great equalizer of the calendar and is the leap day that rectifies the calendar every year (day 365.242), look at (Ps. Ch. 19)

    March 20, 2019 (sunrise to sunrise) was the 365th day of the solar year (the day of the spring equinox), making March 21, 2019 the first day of the first month of the New Year (and the 4th day of the week)

    The 364 day Enoch solar calendar runs off the 365.242 day solar cycle

    When does the day start? Look at (Genesis 1:16, 18, 19:33, 34, Exodus 10:13, 16:22-27,

    We are specifically commanded to use the SUN as the sign for days, Sabbaths, months, years, Sabbaths of years, jubilees, and feasts, and for all seasons of the year.

    The LUNAR cycle for the year is 354 days

    The Enoch solar calendar is 364 days (+ 365th and day of spring equinox)

    The moon is to be for light upon the earth at night (Genesis 1:14, Psalms 136:9, Jeremiah 31:35), for seasons (Psalms 104:19), and for a witness to the covenant of David (Psalms 89:37).

    The ONLY calendar that can reckon Daniel's 70 weeks is the Enoch calendar.

    A breakdown of the Enoch calendar

    1) 12 month, 30 day month, 360 days

    2) + 4 intercalary days (+ 1 occasional leap day) = 365 days

    3) 364 / 7 = 52

    4) Four intercalary days are to be lived but not reckoned, same with the occasional leap day.

    5) Intercalary day (day of remembrance) is inserted at the end of each 3 month cycle.

    6) 1st day of the 1st month is ALWAYS the day AFTER the spring equinox.

    7) 1st day of the 1st month ALWAYS resets to the 4th day of the week.

    8) Enoch lived 365 years.

    Chris, Solar calendar

    Page 2

    The "course of Abia" (Luke 1:5) is the 8th of 24 priestly courses (watches) that were followed by Aaron and his sons (priest line) as given in 1 Chronicles 24:10. This is the course Zacharias the father of John the Baptist was following.

    The first day of the first month according to the Enoch calendar is ALWAYS the 4th (FOURTH) day of the week. A check for this can be found in the book of Jubilees where it states that the Festival of Shavuot is ALWAYS the 15th day of the 3rd month and is ALWAYS the FIRST day of the week. So if you count backwards to the 1st day of the 1st month it will ALWAYS be the 4th day of the week.

    (Enoch 72:32-34) states that there is a separation day that is to occur at the spring equinox which separates each year. It is the day after day 364 and it does NOT have a day attached to it. It is the time from the end of the 364th day until the spring equinox. The day after the 364th day is intercalated.

    The Enoch calendar is a holy priestly calendar that is based on 364 days ONLY. The extra time until the equinox is used to calibrate the New Year. That time is not counted. The calendar is perfectly rectified every year.

    The Enoch calendar is 364 days EXACTLY look at (Enoch 74:10, 12, 81:6, 7, 11, Jubilees 6:32, 38) The solar cycle is 365.242 days.

    All ancient (and current) calendars are generally reckoned upon a twelve month 30 day cycle with 5 days added.

    The SUN is the ONLY tool used to calibrate the calendar. The sun is the great sign on earth and highlights the Sabbath day and the spring equinox is the great calibration sign to mark the yearly cycle

    As stated above, the calendar resets every year on the 4th day of the 1st month. The 1st day of the 1st month is always the 4th day of the week. The 4th day of the 1st month is always a Sabbath

    Chris, The Enoch Solar Priestly Calendar

    As far as calendars go, I have been involved for the last few years with trying to follow the Enoch calendar as presented in the books of Enoch from the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS).

    I will try not to get into too much information, but I find it to be very interesting.

    The recurrent theme that is most striking throughout all of the DSS is the SOLAR CALENDAR!

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

    It is stated that Enoch brought the calendar from heaven, claiming a very ancient origin to it, learning it from the angels. Enoch spent many years in heaven learning the 364 day solar priestly calendar and spent one year on earth teaching it to his son Methuselah, who taught it to his son, and so on. In the time of Abraham, Melchezadok was the one that brought the calendar back up to heaven?

    The Book of Enoch describes how the Holy place has 2 dimensions, heavenly and earthly. There are 7 heavenly sanctuaries corresponding to the 1 earthly Mount Zion, one Temple, and one chariot of the cherubim. In heaven there are 7 firmaments, 7 sanctuaries, 7 temples, and 7 chariots of the cherubim.

    In the Book, Angels are called Priests of Sacrifices; not sacrificing animals, but incense and liturgy. The order of the sacrificial liturgy corresponds to the order of the sacrifice in the Temple; i.e.- songs of the Sabbath liturgy. Angels are taking care of proper sacrifice for what is not being properly sacrificed on earth.

    In the extra Psalms found in the DSS, it is said that David authored 364 songs for each day of the year. David authored 52 songs for each Sabbath of the year. David authored 18 songs for each of the holy days of the year.

    Book of Jubilees- Noah stayed in the Ark for 364 days.

    Chris,

    e / f / g) Again, I agree with you that Christ came to fulfill the Law.

    However, I believe that the "Law" was the blood (and certain ceremonial) "ordinances" Ephesians 2:15, Colossians 2:20, that His blood on the cross made acceptable "once for all" Hebrews 10:10. As Matthew 5:18 states; "till ALL be fulfilled."

    ALL has not been fulfilled yet. The rest of the Law stands.

    I try my best to follow the Law. However I look at Romans 3:28 and Romans 7:5-6 in this way:

    What sets us apart from the Law is our ability to be forgiven (no longer through blood sacrifice by a priest on an altar) but through Jesus. Forgiveness has to do with sin. I don't need forgiveness if I have not sinned. Sin has to do with BREAKING THE LAW. Forgiveness is what leads to redemption, and EVERYONE needs forgiveness EVERYDAY. When we sin we put ourselves under the Law; I don't see how we can't.

    The following of the LAW and the doing of good WORKS will lead us straight into the GRACE of God and His only Begotten.

    I will send you the Enoch calendar info. on another page
