    Joseph,

    1 Corinthians 10:3, John 6:27, John 6:51, 1 Peter 2:2, Hebrews 5:12-14 are just a few of many places. In John 4:32, after Jesus' disciples brought Him physical food, Jesus said "I have meat to eat that ye know not of."

    I don't know if you have ever experienced this before, but Christians have somewhat many times, where you are physically hungry, and you are physically tired, but then in some way, shape, or form, God ministers through you to someone else, or from someone else to you, and whatever physical hunger you have or physical thirst you have, it doesn't make any difference. That physical hunger or physical thirst somehow just disappears!

    The spiritual food is contentment in and of itself. You are not as hungry as you used to be or as starved as you used to be. Now what is interesting in John Chapter 4 is that the woman left her waterpot behind. Jesus said you just brought physical food from the city, but I have food to eat that you know not of. He ministered God's word to this woman.

    I find it interesting that 11 of these 12 names are written in Revelation 7:5-8 where God seals their foreheads.

    Manasses instead of Dan.
  • Adam - in Reply on Romans 12:8
    1. No. Jesus made wine; just don't get drunk and don't use it to tempt or cause others to stumble.

    2. No.

    3. If we're actively following Jesus then we're covered by grace and have hope for eternal life in heaven. We should obey God's laws, but since all are imperfect sinners we are covered by grace when we sin. The law still applies, but is fulfilled in that we aren't subject to its original punishment of death, but life with Jesus. James 2 and Romans 6 explain this.
  • Jesse - in Reply on 2 Timothy 3:1
    Marie,

    The first 9 verses of 2 Timothy Chapter 3 gives us a description of the last days. We have been in the last days for a long time now, since Paul's day. The last days are not to be taken as meaning the tribulation period, even though the tribulation period is included in the last days. Paul was very compelled in his letters to speak about the apostasy of the last days.

    He believed the apostasy was starting in his day. And we are still in those last days. The last days began in Acts Chapter 2 at the coming of the Holy Spirit, and they will end at the end of the Tribulation Period. We are in the last days deeper now than in Paul's day. And again, Paul believed the apostasy was in his day. And we see all these things happening in and amongst the church.

    A study of the description of the last days shows us two things. First, we see the characteristic of people in the last days in Verses 1 through 5, and then the condition of people in the last days in Verses 6 through 9. These are people that are in the church, as Verse 5 tells us. They are not just in it, but among the believers. These are the things that are happening in and among the church even today. These are people who have a form of godliness but reject and deny the power thereof.
  • Ceyz on Genesis 1:29
    One thing that everyone seems to miss when talking about plants and fruits is that Genesis 1:29 states that only seeds bearing plants and fruits with seeds are for food. Which implies that if the fruit has no seed we shall not eat.
  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 4:17
    The book of Genesis is one cohesive book and has always been. So, unless you provide evidence of how there's 2 creation accounts I of course don't believe it. So far you cited 2 verses which weren't evidence and you said there's 2 chapters, which aren't evidence either. Is that your only evidence? A chapter break has nothing to do with a different account in Genesis nor any other book, and chapter and verse breaks were in the original scrolls, but added later to make it easier to read. I also guessed as to what possibly could have been an assumption in order to come to such a conclusion, but you didn't elaborate on why you assume what you do. God bless.
  • Onyekachukwu Ogechukwu Livinus Alaka on Psalms 113:3
    Psalms 113:3 "From the rising of the Sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be Praise". The Lord demands Praise. His name should be Praised from east to west, all day long, no matter where we are. If you find yourselve in a place where you cannot Praise the Lord, may be you do not belong there. "Believe that greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the World".

    Whether they are spoken of separately or combined, the "Jews" (2 Kings 16:6), the "Gentiles" (Genesis 10:5), and the "church of God" (1 Corinthians 1:2) make up the three-fold subject matter of the word of God. Every part of the Bible is, in general, written concerning one of these three classes or divisions of persons. Therefore, what is written needs to be appropriately interpreted and applied to the class or division of people to which it was written for!

    The misappropriation of these three classes of people; "Jews," "Gentiles," and the "church" of God, into Scripture where they do not belong is one of the foremost reasons why the word of God is misunderstood, look at Galatians 1:13, Ephesians 1:22, 5:23, Philippians 3:6, Colossians 1:24.

    The Septuagint: The oldest translation of the Hebrew Bible in existence. It was made into popular Greek in Alexandria, Egypt the third or second century B.C.

    The Targum of Onkelos; a Chaldee or Biblically Aramaic paraphrase of the Pentateuch, possibly written in the 1st or 2nd century A.D. in Babylonia.

    Our English Concordances are merely dictionaries of every word of the Bible; translated from those particular languages, for our help.

    We must always rightly divide the Word of God as to its subject matter. The question must always be asked when reading or studying the word of God; "Concerning whom is this particular Scripture written to or about?" There is no doubt that every word from Genesis to Revelations was written for all people to read, study, learn, understand, love, and have faith in; but to believe that every word in the Bible is written directly to all people in all time, or that it concerns only us in particular is an error that will lead to puzzlement and frustration when trying to comprehend the word of God, look at Romans 15:4, 1 Corinthians 10:11.



    When it comes to the topic of "mankind," God has simplified for the student as to whom the general "subject matter" being spoken of throughout It concerns. Scripture informs us that there are three distinct classes or divisions of persons that the word of God addresses. These three classes collectively account for all of mankind. The divisions of persons are plainly given to us in the First Letter written by Paul to the Corinthians;

    (1 Corinthians 10:32)

    Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God.

    Thank you for your reply.

    You are correct; the (Hebrew) translation of the word "Gentile" is the word "goy." However, from the definition given below from Strong's Concordance it clearly states the word "FOREIGN."

    Hebrew definition;

    (#1471) goy, go-ee- a foreign nation; hence, a gentile; also (fig.) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts:- Gentile / heathen / nation / people.

    In addition, the Greek definition, which you correctly defined as "ethnos" leaves no room for error concerning the topic we are discussing.

    Greek definition;

    "Gentiles"(#1484) ethnos, eth-nos- a race (as of the same habit), i.e. a tribe; spec. a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually by impl. pagan):- Gentile / heathen / nation / people.

    The name "Gentiles" was given by God to all people that were considered foreign to the Jews, to their lineage, and to the covenant relationship they enjoyed with the Lord. They are collectively defined as any foreign nation in relation to the nation of Israel. The first occurrence of the word "Gentiles" is found in (Genesis 10:5), and concerns the spreading forth of the offspring of the sons of Noah into "their lands;" referring to the lands of the "Gentiles."

    Abraham is the father of many NATIONS, because GOD SAID that through him, ALL nations would be blessed! Not just (future) nation of Israel.

    The English speaking publishing houses of North America have no control or influence over the ORIGINAL words of God that we have locked in place. The Hebrew and Chaldean words of the Old Testament and the Greek words of the New Testament have been preserved for thousands of years through ancient documents such as:

    The Masoretec Text- The authoritative Hebrew text of the Jewish Bible.

    The Samaritan Pentateuch, which is a translation of the Torah into Aramaic. It is written in the Samaritan alphabet, which is supposed to be an ancient form of Hebrew, and is believed to have come down from the Ten Tribes as early as the 4th century B.C.
  • comments about the Origination of Christ. It was Mary that came thru the bloodline of David the tribe of Judah but not Christ as JESUS WAS NOT OF THIS WORLD he told the Jews you are of this WORLD but i am not of this world you are from beneath i am from above. Jesus was the living Word made flesh and blood . Had he been from Mans seed he wd have carried the stain and the spot of adam and cd NOT have been the lamb of God without spot meaning the spot of adam Jesus asked the pharisees what think ye of Christ whos seed is he they replied Davids seed ( the tribe of judah ) then answered Jesus if David calls him lord how can he be his son ( his seed etc He was Davids lord ) heavenly not of this earth. But many did call him the son of david only b/c David was a type of Christ and his son was the Solomon which means comforter the H.G. WHICH IS THE SON OF CHRIST HIS OFFSPRING VIA HIS SEED ETC THE LIVING WORD. To whom the WORD came it made them Gods thus Christ can reproduce after the God kind spirit,thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats God the comforter the H.G. It was the father that made this law that everything has to reproduce after its kind, but we see that Christ can reproduce after Gods kind Spirit. Thats y Jesus refers to the h.g as the Promise he is the multiplIcation of CHRIST IN US VIA HIS SEED THE WORD. Thats y he is saying to whom the word came it made them Gods,he is able to reproduce God in humanity via his seed and this cannot be refuted as Jesus said the scripture cannot be broken. gb

    Its Happening and we are entering into the beginning of these perilous times,it will only get worse. Bracing for the most difficult,stressful times too come.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Genesis 20
    The scriptures are the infallible word of God. It is inspired and written by Holy men who were chosen and moved spiritually to reveal Gods word. I rest my whole faith my whole being on His word. This is more than a book. In it you will find eternal life! You will find salvation in no other than the prophecy and death and Resurrection found in the history of the salvation of mankind through the Son of God.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Galatians 3:13
    How can we grow? How can we find the path? Believing and living the gospel. Sanctification, being born again. How can these things be? Who will deliver me from this corruption ,this body of death? O wretched man that I am! AH! come to the living water found in your redeemer! Come to the place of peace and rest found in no other! A living water rising endlessly unto eternal life. Lead us beside the still waters, show us the way unto the father. Help us, for Jesus sake.
  • D.J. - in Reply on Philippians 4:17
    Adam,

    I believe there are two accounts of creation because of the information given to me by God in Genesis chapter 1 and Genesis chapter 2. In addition, I have provided Scripture to add weight to what is being proposed.

    Are you sure you read the three pages of information sent to you concerning the various subjects conversed upon? You commented on only one portion. Any question or comment concerning the Scripture used to support my point of view?

    I understand your general vs. specific remark concerning some hypothetical person being called a liar or hypocrite for not giving the complete story at the beginning. It is strange, as I would call someone neither a hypocrite nor a liar for generally informing me of a car accident.

    If you do not agree with a statement concerning Scripture, show me my error through Scripture, rather than offer some random explanation of what I might be thinking, give no Scripture to back up your statement, and answer none of the questions presented to you.

    To answer your questions;

    God only created one earth and one heaven; but three separate and distinct heaven and earth AGES (2 Peter 3:5, 6, 13).

    God only created one light, the sun; the moon is only a reflection of that light.

  • Vendall - in Reply on Matthew 5
    No, in my experience it is making provision for sin or leading to a falling away from Godly pursuits. Not worth it!
  • Chris - in Reply on Ruth 1:22
    That, Carlos, is a great introspective question for every believer & it is indeed the time for its careful consideration. I would hope, nay, believe, that every lover of the Lord is actively awaiting the Lord's Return. Even leaving the sequence of eschatological events aside to which we are at odds with, the glorious hope & expectation for the Lord's Return ought to be our longing, & from all that we do on this Earth, it should reflect this joyous hope.

    I think the leaving behind of material possessions & affiliations will be relatively easy for most; but the leaving behind of loved ones who have not heard the Gospel or accepted the salvation offer from the Lord, will be the pain in our hearts both now & at that time. This is another reason that should urge us to be looking out for their souls by sharing of the Word, in testimony & in much prayer.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Terry, I can't offer any one Scripture to answer your question but the two that come close to that, would be Romans 13:1-5 (speaks of our subjection to our governments & their laws) and Acts 5:29 (when apostle Peter retorted to the High Priest that they would obey God rather than man). So we should be obedient to the government, yet if its laws contradict God's Laws, then our obedience is to the Lord first & foremost. And those occasions would be, when the government forbids the preaching of the Gospel, our attending Church or other laws that work against Christians for the working of their faith. And this evil will ultimately be manifested at the appearing of the Anti-Christ.

    Some countries are already facing some persecution now as non-Christian governments oppose the work of Christians. And of course, we see much of this now in the laws from our Western governments as they pass anti-Christian legislation & laws which go against the teachings from the Word. We are grieved by what we see & feel helpless to make a change (even our Christian politicians don't seem to be proactive in this), therefore we are cast upon Him for Strength, Grace & the knowledge that He will bring all sin to light, with many of our government heads facing the greater judgement for their wickedness. The Bible also speaks about those who have the rule over our souls (i.e. Church leaders) as they too will be held accountable for the quality of their leadership & care (Acts 20:28 & Hebrews 13:17). So each of us will be accountable, but more so to those who have been placed in power & authority over us.

    Acts 1:25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression FELL, that he might go to his own place. (Jesus didn't fail but Judas fell)

    John 15:6 If a man (abide not in me), he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (Jesus said this John 15)

    2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; (The angels were in heaven but were cast out.)

  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    you seem to be very intelligent but it is so difficult to answer all your questions at the same time and non productive as generally try to explain many things at the same time is confusing; and often you need to use references to verses and I i'm not use to do that; however some of your questions, the first are science, very general science in fact; and of course I have heard of these things but never in the manner or forms of questions as you have put it;Take the first question for example:

    If the Moon is a light, as God proclaims it to be - how come NASA claim they have been walking around on it!? You must be joking. It reflex light; and so it gives light; and everyone knows it is solid; as for NASA, ask them, However, there is nothing wrong with jokes but i never seen joking on so many questions especially all at the same time of seriously looking for serious information on the Bible; and it seems to me, not the thing to do; as for those other questions; I couldn't refer you to appropriate verses.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 4
    Because there may be a time when some Christians will be on the front line in defense of righteousness and human life.Being prepared shows forethought with purpose and resolve.Man's responsibility to execute judgement/and govern was first in Genesis 9:5&6, death to murders of human life.
