  • Unequally Yoked - in Reply on Numbers 12:13
    Christian, Do not be 'unequally yoked' to an UNBELIEVER. Search or google that.

    The Bible says NOTHING about mixed race marriages. The "cultural issues" may doom the marriage tho. We are not to leave our faith and be converted to the others beliefs.

    It could send the Christian into unbelief and apostasy; which is a road that leads to hell.

    If you blaspheme the Holy Spirit And recant on your salvation through Jesus.

    Consider that, before pleasures of the flesh.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    Out of the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses, let a thing be established. All must be in agreement, to be truth from the Lord.

    We can be sitting ducks for false prophets, false teachers, wolves in sheep skins, Antichrist or his Antichrist spirit (demon).

    Don't let your self be led into Apostasy. You could end up in hell.

    Now go google on those words. Type Bible At the end of your question.
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Revelation 5:13
    Francis, I'm going to pray for you. I don't want to falsely judge this situation by the few words you've stated. If you need help, please reach out to others, if this is regarding you & it's on going.
  • Why is wisdom referred as a woman - in Reply on Proverbs 3:15
    1:20-21; 2:2-4; 3:14-18; 4:7-8; 8:1-36 and 9:1-12. Each time wisdom speaks. The first time wisdom speaks is in Proverbs 1:20-21.

    Wisdom shouts in the street,

    She lifts her voice in the square;

    At the head of the noisy streets she cries out;

    At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings: Proverbs 1:20-21 (NASB)

    The Hebrew word for wisdom is hakmot and this noun is a feminine plural. A literal reading would seem to be "Wisdom shouts in the street," except that the second line is in the singular - "she lifts her voice." F. C. Cook writes,

    In the Hebrew the noun is a feminine plural . . . as though this Wisdom were the queen of all wisdoms, uniting in herself all their excellences.[1]

    That is, since Proverbs 2:6 says that God gives wisdom, the wisdom in Proverbs is the queen of all wisdoms. There is no greater wisdom.

    For the LORD gives wisdom;

    From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

    He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

    He is a shield to those who walk uprightly . . . Proverbs 2:6-7 (NKJV)

    Why Is Wisdom A Woman?

    Why did Proverbs personify wisdom as a woman? The answer is we do not know because Scripture never tells us. However, many have speculated why wisdom is personified as a woman by suggesting different ideas, but we are never told. The explanations are merely speculation. It is wrong to state that Proverbs is written from a father to his son and then suggest that wisdom is personified as feminine in order to make wisdom appear attractive to the son when Proverbs 5:15-20 warns men to avoid prostitutes. Such a conclusion is contrary to the teaching of Scripture.

    Others suggest that wisdom is feminine because the Hebrew word is assigned the feminine gender. But this conclusion is wrong since the grammatical structure clearly refers to a female such as in Proverbs 3:13-15 and 9:1.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 1:14
    From the Commentary Box

    Cautions against rash suretiship. (1-5) A rebuke to slothfulness. (6-11) Seven things hateful to God. (12-19) Exhortations to walk according to God's commandments. (20-35)1-5 If we live as directed by the word of God, we shall find it profitable even in this present world. We are stewards of our worldly substance, and have to answer to the Lord for our disposal of it; to waste it in rash schemes, or such plans as may entangle us in difficulties and temptations, is wrong. A man ought never to be surety for more than he is able and willing to pay, and can afford to pay, without wronging his family; he ought to look upon every sum he is engaged for, as his own debt. If we must take all this care to get our debts to men forgiven, much more to obtain forgiveness with God. Humble thyself to him, make sure of Christ as thy Friend, to plead for thee; pray earnestly that thy sins may be pardoned, and that thou mayest be kept from going down to the pit.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 1:14
    Twice God allowed some kind of visual but not clearly. JAcob only saw his back. Moses only saw His Fire.

    Go do a search on burning bush.

    Naturally they were afraid because of, "no man can see God and live."

  • T. Levis - in Reply on James 1:5
    Great question! I was just thinking about those recently & I realized a deeper thought about them. He said these things before HE actually lived them out as example, before HIS crucifixion.

    Mathew 5:1-48

    Some of your questions can be answered sooner, if you'll learn how to use the 2 SEARCH boxes when you first enter the room. One is empty and the other one you can "dial" in the scripture you're looking for.

    While the scripture is upon the screen, touch or click on it and it will highlight yellow. Scroll down till you see the Commentary box, click and open.

    If you don't see exactly what you want, use the fast google box. It will take you to a list that tries to locate your scripture.

    I'm interested if you got a response to your question?
  • Rolando Martinez on Psalms 15
    The impulse to compare myself with the character in Psalms 15 is irresistible: like the sword in the stone, I can't resist giving it a tug. But, the Holy Spirit is true in His ministry (John 16; 7-11): He helps me see that I fall short of the Glory revealed in those few verses. He also brings to mind Jesus in His ministry here on earth then I recognize that Psalms 15 is a portrait of Jesus, that the Glory belongs to Him. The Holy Spirit also comforts me regarding salvation: though I fall short of the Glory of God, "... He hath made Him to be sin for us Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5; 21)". Truly, the Glory belongs to Jesus and no other. Bless you Lord Jesus and blessed be your Holy Name!
  • T. Levis - in Reply on John 2
    Just to add a little to discussion:

    Personal experience it is like to many new believers it's learning everything again but better.

    I thought just the other day about this issue.

    Like learning to talk, eat, walk & act all over again, in the Spirit

    Like not going places that cause sin before, not saying hurtful or offensive words etc.

    Hi T. I'm a T also.

    I actually had this discussion just the other day with someone. Please read Isaiah 1 vrs. 1-31, Isaiah 53 vrs. 1-12 , John 1:11-12,

    Good faith : Hebrews 11 vrs. 1-40, James 1 vrs. 1-4,

    Bad faith, may be putting your trust in anything other than God.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Jesus is the True High Priest and is the Prince of Salem (Peace) like the order of Melchisedec. Jesus completely fulfilled the position of Melchisedec and Abraham the Father of Faith paid tribute to him with Levi in his loins. Now his believing children are spiritual Levites on earth while Jesus is in the heavens.

    Hebrews 8 agrees that there was and is and always be only one offering of sacrifice (offered up). The born again believer by full remittance of sins becomes a chosen vessel, a royal priesthood in the order of a Levite priest (earthy) while Jesus remains the Heavenly Priest.

    His Holy Spirit directs our Priestly ways concerning our very own Tabernacle, in the order of peace which is harmless and not defiled and separate from sin.

  • Michael Joseph Merritt - in Reply on Proverbs 3:15
    I do not have a complete answer on your question of Why is wisdom a she. However, here are some things I learned, that are facts. In the judgment upon Adam and Eve, in Genesis chapter three, because Adam was the husband, he makes the final decision with the input of his wife. Adam chose against Jesus, and chose sin and death. Adam could of stopped the fall of man by saying no to Eve. It was the man's failure. 2. The son of Jehovah, Jesus, was born of The Holy Ghost in an immaculate conception and the seed of a Woman, Mary. The man, and his seed was not selected, but the seed of a woman. 3. In Jesus' resurrection he appears first to the women, and not to the Apostles. I learned that the faith of the women was greater than the Apostles, and the Apostles struggled to believe Jesus' prophecy about himself, and failed to believe the women. The women were of a stronger faith, and believed Jesus' teachings more than the Apostles. 4. In the beginning, the male and female were made in the image of God Genesis 1:27. Thus, the female is equal to the male, in her soul. 5. A woman's special role of bearing children and being a Mother provides her insight into her Creator Jesus, that the men shall never have. The Song of the Woman's soul sings her love song to her baby in the womb for the entire gestation, and creates a love bond between mother and child, that the father does not have.

  • Bob Grove on Galatians 3
    Galatians chapter 3 verses 26 - 29

    28 There is neither Jew or Greek , there is neither bond or free , there is neither male or female : for ye are all one in Christ Jesus .

    29 And if ye be Christ's then are Abraham s seed and heirs according to the promise .
  • Stephende on Hebrews 10
    I don't get the logic whereby because Jesus was "offered up", that our sins are remitted. There is no once andfor all that I can see. Jesus demonstrated that the death of the body does not touch the life in the body. Melchisidek walked the earth having no beginning or end but a priest continually. Remission of sins does not happen on earth, or only rarely as one is approved by God. Every Christian I know is like a whitewashed wall, pretending to be holy above the fray yet full of the same God awful and persistant fallacies as everyone else
  • Harold Edward Willett - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    Will where in the Bible does Jesus tell anyone that they must be taught the words of God by other pastor's?

    The word of God as a testimony I agree with because God speaks to us all daily is we listen. Are you trying to tell me that a testimony is only to speak what's in the word of God? I just wanted to be clear on what your telling me because all I see is a few scriptures. Can you be more clear in your own words what your saying? Thank you
  • Carleton - in Reply on Psalms 1
    We are ministers of our own tabernacle not built with hands. This is the Christian's primary purpose. If we reign in peace, we reign as a pattern to that which will be when Jesus and his bride consummates their marriage in the heavens at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

    :)
  • Donna - in Reply on Job 13:15
    Sir, there seems to be a misunderstanding. I did not say that God tempts us, but what I am saying is that He allows the enemy to bring pain and suffering into our lives.

    I do not want to stand in judgment of you, but your comments seem more like an attack. I discern another spirit at work.
  • T - in Reply on Genesis 1
    You didn't answer my questions in regards to your original comment.
  • Hebrews Chapter 8 the pattern - in Reply on Psalms 1
    Hebrews 8:4-5

    For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:

    Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things,

    as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle:

    See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

    Hebrews 8:3

    For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

    Hebrews 8:2

    A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

    Hebrews 8:1

    Now of the things we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens.

    Revelation 5:10

    And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

    Jesus reigns on the right hand of the throne of God in the heavens; the born again believer reigns with the indwelling Holy Spirit as Kings and priests on the earth.

    This is the pattern fulfilled until time is no more. Jesus on earth is reigning by his Holy Spirit in his Kings and Priests in the peace and order of Melchisedec.
