    We know where Ethiopia is. Most of Africa and some parts of Asia was referred to as Ethiopia (people of burnt faces), Pison is the gold coast which includes most of west Africa (Ghana etc), and the other 2 rivers covers the Mesopotamia (Syria, Iraq etc). So Eden is a big place.
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 12:1
    Janet, the great cloud of witnesses would be referring to those mentioned in Hebrews chapter 11. As you know, that chapter speaks about the definition of faith & then lists some of the Old Testament folk who were commended for their faith in God in spite of the circumstances they found themselves in. So, the point of the chapter is to show us that God looks for genuine faith in us towards Him. Therefore, the writer is suggesting in Chapter 12, that since these old-timers who were accepted by God because of their faith, they might be watching (witnessing) us to see whether we have that faith that God is pleased with (Hebrews 11:6).
  • Markel Norman on 1 Peter 3:21
    Jesus, commaned his follower's to be baptized "In The Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost," Jesus knew that they understood who the Name of the Father was ;

    John 5:43 KJV

    43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. Also read;

    John 14:8-10 KJV

    8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

    9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

    10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

    Then Jesus also commanded them to be baptized in The Name of the Son; This should be evident without controversy we all know who the name of the Son is. However, We find in

    John 14:6-7:

    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

    Acts 4:12 KJV

    12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. The most powerful name under heaven is JESUS.

    Finally, we come to the Name of the Holy Ghost, that Name is The same name of both the Father's and The Son's is Jesus. As we read about the Comforter in John 14: 16-18

    And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

    26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

    In the Wiki article about old Saint Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco, there is a panel below the bell tower clock which shows a quote, or reference, to Ecclesiastes 4:23, which says: "Son, observe the time and fly from evil". I have looked online at the book of Ecclesiastes and the last verse in chapter 4 appears to be 17. Can someone help me solve this mystery? Thank you

    Having done an impromptu review just now; the chapter does imply blessings to Hagar & Sarai as equals, but not first equals. That said, The Ishmaelites that have read this and act in a responsible, loving way, divinely decreed manner, should

    be heirs to the promises made to Abraham, Isaac, AND Ishmael .

    Christ was there before, during, and after this episode and will be coming back to redeem ALL who are worthy .

    Greg, that was very informative & thank you for your troubles in explaining the Solar Calendar from the Book of Enoch & other references. I guess I've never looked into this matter since I don't regard the Apocryphal books as part of the Canon of Scripture. I can see a lot of interesting information therein (such as you have explained), but in all honesty, I could never reference them or use them in ministry. But your time given to explain that is appreciated though I don't understand everything you said, & agree that that is probably the more accurate method to determine our true calendar days.

    With that said & this year's Sabbath falling on a Monday, how does this fact affect you in keeping the Sabbath (in respect to conducting life & business which follows the Gregorian calendar)? Or, would today's Jews keep the Sabbath according to the Solar Calendar? Surely, they must adhere to the Gregorian to conduct business as they would be 'all over the place' in every aspect of life. What you have presented is mind-boggling as I've never considered folk working with two systems like this, if at all.

    c. You: "So when someone says the Joos can be saved by grace and keeping the law during a future time period they are contradicting dozens of passages in both the old and new testaments."

    Me: I heartily agree, as Grace & Faith are required for salvation today, there can't be a reversion back to either just the Law or a fusing of both. For those who will die until the Millenial rule of Christ, their destinies are either Heaven or Hell. For those still alive at Christ's reign & hear the Gospel preached (Revelation 14:6), it would still be the Gospel of Faith without the Law. And lest any think that this is a 'second chance Gospel' given for all, I sense that it is still the same Gospel sent to those living at that time, whereas those who rejected it earlier, perished because of their rejection of it. It seems that the validity of the Gospel is not based on a specific duration (i.e. a cut off time) but on its eternal value & offer to all living. And of course, where the Holy Spirit is absent there can't be conviction; but when Christ is present (Millenium), His Spirit goes to work. And the fact that it is preached today in all love & urgency as the Spirit still abides, is so that those who choose to reject it now & die, will never receive a second chance for eternal life, even though it remains valid.

    The Anti-Christ proponents say that the verse speaks of the Anti-Christ in position for 7 years, first coming as a peace-maker (confirming the covenant he makes to this end). In the midst of the week (3 years), he breaks that covenant, stopping all Jewish worship & his position on the 'throne' desecrates & makes the Temple an abomination. Now I realize you are aware of the various ways to look at it, & even Carlos (I think) alerted me to the "he" in verse 27 as referring to Jesus. So, I'm well aware of both positions by taking off my 'pre-trib hat' & even admit that this understanding could be valid. And also, as you would know, there are many scholars who just can't fit the events of v 27 to anyone but the spirit of Satan. So that's where we're at: two opinions who firmly believe their understanding of this verse is correct.

    b. You: "Isn't the chapter about Jesus confirming THE covenant (verses 24 and 25)? It's all about that. to make an end of sins, THE TESTATOR must die in order for the will or covenant to become in affect. All over Hebrews."

    Me: I agree that it is Jesus that is spoken about in vv 24,25. But when you look at the 'weeks' of years given in vv 24-27, we see that Jesus was already crucified (v 26) & Jerusalem destroyed by Titus in AD 70 (69 weeks). Then in v 27 "he confirms the covenant for 1 week (the remaining week from the 70 weeks)". How do you understand this in the light that Jesus was already crucified at the 62nd week?

    Robert, thank you for the time you've taken for such a detailed reply. Just to pick up on some things in reference to the Daniel 9 account. And I'm trying to think not as a pre-tribber or any other 'tribber', but look at the verses in their context.

    a. You: "There are TWO princes mentioned in this passage. One is Titus (secular little prince) and the other Jesus the Messiah, the Prince of peace." (v26).

    Me: Yes, I do agree with you on that, but when we get to verse 27 & we see "And he shall confirm the covenant with many", this is where divergent opinions arise on who "he" is. Some say that it speaks of Jesus, others, Anti-Christ. For those referring it to Jesus, I sought understanding as to His "confirming the Covenant FOR ONE WEEK (7 Years) & causing the sacrifice & oblation to cease, etc." If it was Jesus, how & when did this happen at His coming & His death, as all things continued the same way with the Jews? If it referred to the "Prince that shall come", then it spoke about, either evil Titus at his coming in AD 70, or that spirit that was in him, to be revealed in the Anti-Christ.

    Now, I realize that you've also given a fuller explanation of this & it is noted & appreciated. However, to fully appreciate both sides of understanding verse 27 (whether speaking of Jesus or Anti-Christ), we would need to understand "confirming the covenant", "for one week (7 years)", & a "ceasing & removal of the sacrifices & abominations". You've said that Jesus affirmed the promise through the Gospel (how so for 7 years?), the sacrifices/oblations ceased through His death & resurrection, & the desolation of the abominations at His Second Coming (I assume).

  • Bob Grove on Revelation 1
    I'd like the concordance and commentary that Jesus used , and the one that the churches used to understand Paul and the other apostles letters too them .

    Can you imagine the church writing apostle Peter and saying we can't understand your letters because we have no seminary's and library of books to study them !

    Come on people wake up pray to the author God for his Holy spirits work to enable you to understand what man never will .
  • Leo - in Reply on Genesis 2
    Dear Brothers and sisters, the truth is that Jesus died and arose from the dead on the third day. what is most important for man kind to know , understand and believe is that this act of love offered by God through Christ Jesus ensures salvation for all believers in Jesus Christ.

    it is not the time and day of the week that saved mankind from destruction but the act of God through his son Jesus Christ.

    Please refer to John 3:16-18.

    Thank you so much for praying for my mother. She underwent surgery that lasted 9 hours. She is recovering in the ICU. I praise God for people like you who are willing to pray for people in need of some blessing, a miracle. I believe your prayers have moved the heart of the Lord Jesus to heal her. I ask you to continue praying that she will no longer be at risk of life and be healed. Thank you very, very much. May Jesus bless you more and more, amen. Alex
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 7:1
    I'm not sure if someone is claiming the KJV has changed or not, but if that's the claim that can be easily resolved by looking any verse up in the 1611 A.D. version which is on this website. People have made this claim a lot and instead of taking a few seconds to verify if their verse has actually changed, some insist that the KJV is somehow wrong and that their memory is never wrong. Personally I trust God's word more than man's word. People should also keep in mind that the English language has changed a lot in 400 years, so in case it's a word being spelled slightly differently, it doesn't mean a translation is corrupted if it updates to the proper spoken language.

    This is all I could find:

    And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

    Exodus 6:3

    And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

    Exodus 17:15

    And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:

    Judges 6:24

    Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

  • Mishael on Spiritual Warfare - in Reply on 2 Peter 2:20
    Go on YouTube and watch some videos on spiritual warfare, that's all you have to type in. Listen to some by Derek Prince. He's very calm but he can sure make the demons run!

    Sounds like you have more than one person ought to have. Read Ephesians chapter 6. Principalities and Powers are invisible but they manifest in mean ways. That's how you know they are around. You need to get more Bible into you to win against these things that afflict the children.

    Schizophrenia is a demonic spirit. It may be working in sync with a familiar spirit (infiltrates and follows families). Learn from Derek how to run these demons off. It's the Holy Name of Jesus they must bow to.

    You have to learn this. Jesus cast out demons every day of his ministry. Read the Gospels and see how Jesus did it.

    Write me back later and tell me how it goes.

    You may have a move in your future...

    Even good Christians oppose themselves and people they love. (Mom)

    You take over your Christian walk. Can't anyone else do it for you. Just say "I appreciate your concern" and then make your exit.

    Did you do as described in John 3 ? If so, then you are born again; and the Holy Spirit came alongside to be a daily part of your life. your Teacher; Comforter. If you're veering off course, He will alert you.

    Any voice that accuses you and attacks your faith in God; is Satan. You must put on your armor, Ephesians 6, pick up your "Sword" which is scripture you have hidden in your heart; and run Satan out of your life. If you need a bigger sword...keep adding Bible into your armory every day. The demonic are invisible but you can tell when they're around: they accuse, they tear at your personality and any way they can, tear you down. You have no need that anyone teach you but The Holy Spirit: which is the Spirit of Jesus Christ. He will undertake your learning if you ask Him to. Give him all the confusion and the wounded spirit and ask Him to heal you completely.

    Generally I suggest you would watch Charles Stanley videos on YouTube; but I'm going to add to that, videos by Charles Capps. He teaches on the Authority of the Believer. Both are fatherly Teachers. You'll enjoy the sermons. Greg Laurie teaches a lot of younger people. You might check out his sermons too.

    You have suffered a breach but you are healed of that NOW in the Name of Jesus! Receive it now.

    Every time you hear the Accuser; cast him out in Jesus name. Pray for the Lord to undertake your mom's comments. Forgive always! This releases God to be at work in her life. You don't have to do a thing. Give it to Him.

    Find some Christian friends to Bible Study with. It makes for a lot of joy and fun. :D

    How's your spaghetti skills? Mishael
  • Shane UOTF - in Reply on Matthew 7:1
    I do understand how people can get things messed up sometimes. But I'm not saying Satan is doing any of this, in fact only God would have that sort of power in my opinion. I can't tell you exactly how, but I know what my Bible used to say and what it now says, and it no longer matches. I was born in 1974, I'm not aware of any of those things you referred to in regards to why I have it mixed up, but I'm going off of what I read in my actual Bible.

    Mark 13:10 is a great example, don't you remember "and the gospel must first be preached among all nations"? It now says Published instead of preached. I believe it's the time of great Revelation 2020 vision. Truth is being revealed. Think of the division Paul brought to the churches. The confusion and all the various denominations (Over 38,000).

    Well now Paul tells us in 2 Cor. 11:8 how he robbed churches. That was not always in my Bible that way.

    Mammas and the pappas, California dreaming song used to say got down on my knees and began to pray, now it says pretend to pray. I don't know why we have alternate realities but I read the Bible dozens of times, I just know it's changed for me. There's no doubt about it and it's in a supernatural way. The big one for me is the Thinker statue with it's fist to it's forehead. I had the statue growing up, yet he never had his fist to his forehead, it's supposedly always been to his mouth and chin. There's never been Stouffer's Stove Top Stuffing, it's always been Kraft Stove Top.

    None of this ringing a bell for anyone?
