    Mark Matthews, Day Christ Died.

    Right on! Just as Johah said; "Three days AND three nights" Jonah 1:17.

    Jesus died on what we call Wednesday just before sundown.

    Wednesday sundown to Thursday sundown = 1 day (first night and day in the tomb)

    Thursday sundown to Friday sundown = 1 day (second night and day in the tomb)

    Friday sundown to Saturday sundown = 1 day (third night and day in the tomb)

    Mary came to the sepulchre at daybreak Sunday.

    Look at Matthew 12:40.

    Jesus rose at some time between Saturday sundown and Sunday morning.

    The "high day" of John 19:31 was the first day of the feast (Passover), and is considered a high holy Sabbath day.

    The first day of the Feast was a Thursday (15th day of Nisan- April 3/4). The 15th day of Nisan commenced at sunset on what we would still call the 14th.

    Jesus was crucified on the 14th, the "preparation day" (John 19:31), and by law the crucified bodies should not remain on the cross on a Sabbath day. Jesus was put in the tomb before sunset on Wednesday the 14th.

    The "first day of the week" (Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:1-2, Luke 24:1, John 20:1-), the day of the Resurrection, was from our Saturday sunset to Sunday sunset.

    Jesus was to be the Lamb slain, and His crucifixion took place on the "preparation day" (John 19:14) when all lambs were slaughtered for the great Passover Feast the NEXT day.

    The Last Supper DID NOT take place on the day of Passover, look at Matthew 27:62, Mark 15:42, Luke 23:54, John 19:14, John 19:31-42.

    The "third day" of Matthew 16:21 is not the third day of the great Feast, but the third day of our Lord and Savior being in the tomb.

    Not reading Psalms 91 is like driving without auto insurance. You need the HEAVENLY FATHER'S protection, and as an added bonus, HE sends HIS angels to camp around about us, our dwellings and our family May the Lord continue to Bless ALL mankind ,Taylor

    Pls can you explain the bible verse pretty pls
  • Curiosone - in Reply on Revelation 12
    I'm making mention of the verse you commented on - Revelation 12:14 in this chapter. You said that it was America (could be (you say) - ((wings of an eagle) as America is represented as an eagle) that is taking care (nourished in the verse) Israel. But maybe what you don't see is the end of the verse I guess where it says - nourished........from the face of the serpent. So, the serpent is nourishing Israel and you implied America is nourishing Israel, so GOD is calling America a serpent that is nourishing Israel. Note also that America in this verse is called a wilderness. America is not the only country that has been represented by wings or an eagle - Rome, Persia....etc

    part 2 of 5 or 6:

    5.Our opinions don't matter. The context of the passage is all about Jesus dying for sins and the destruction of the temple.

    6.Why are people implying a "future peace treaty here" when it doesn't even teach that? They are reading in light of a presupposition they were taught as a young Christian or Bible College student like I was.

    7.Why did all commentaries pre-1830 teach the 'he' here is the Messiah? We know that the Bible says many false doctrines would arise in the last days. We are here. This keeps people from preparing their hearts for persecution.

    B. What would cause the sacrifices and oblations to cease?

    1. Jesus' death as the FINAL AND ONLY LAMB of GOD that GOD WILL FOREVER ACCEPT, and He became the LAST HIGH PRIEST TOO. Caiphas lost his job that day. Everything he did at that point was meaningless and anyone in the future doing these things will be meaningless and incur the wrath of God. Look at what God sent in 70 AD and again in 363 AD.

    2. Just because SOME of the Joos went back to sacrificing for 40 more years rejecting Jesus as the Messiah and rejecting atonement when God had enough, doesn't mean those sacrifices amounted to anything. They didn't. They were wasting their time. They even admitted in Yoma 39b in the Talmud that the scarlet wool never turned white again after 30 AD. So those next 40 years were totally meaningless when it came to sacrifices and oblations. God had mercy on them and gave them another 40 years on top of the 490 to repent and accept the Lord Jesus. I know I sent you all this before.

    Let me know if you want the rest.
  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    ME: "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).

    YOU: Yes, I do agree with you on that, but when we get to verse 27 & we see (A) "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) & (B) causing the sacrifice & oblation to cease, etc." If it was Jesus, (C) how & when did this happen at His coming & His death, as all things continued the same way with the Jews? (D) 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.

    ME: BREAKING IT DOWN. I think I did this for you before. You may have not read it.


    1.What covenant was promised to Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:15?

    Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

    2.What covenant came into being WHEN Jesus rose from the dead?

    3.What covenant is constantly talked about throughout the whole New Testament and referred to in the Old Testament many times with Daniel 9:24-27 just being one of those times?

    4.Why is the KJB the only one that calls it THE covenant? THE is a definitive article only meaning ONE of a kind ONE time. There has been many peace treaties over the centuries. More modern English translations have changed THE to A so they can encrypt pre-trib theology in by making it say more than one possibility. The NLT is so horrible it teaches pre-trib theology.

    This is about 1/4th of my response and breaking it all down for you. I wish I could just send you the Word document so you can read it over and over. Blogs are nice but limited.
  • Nicole - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I've recently woken up and seen some of what is truly going on around us,I'm sure I'm just now beginning to scratch the surface of things that I need to know and need to understand,but I'm doing my research everyday all day long and I share as much as I possibly can with people "where it allows me to that is "and I'll continue to do that! I don't want it to seem like I'm trying to make up ANY EXCUSES for myself not understanding the bible. But I am a 31 year old who has been on medication for my ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ) & ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder ) since before I was in Kindergarten. I don't understand things very easily or clearly no matter how simple it is, it may be easy to you or someone else though. So please don't think I don't want to understand it or don't think I haven't tried. But I'm trying to get in a group of godly people,I want to live for Jesus and help fight this war "If that's what you'd call it". I don't know if this will get so bad that we'll need a underground bunker to stay in to be able to survive in this world or not for a while. But I don't have that kind of money or that kind of connections or friends that I can turn to if things gets bad,its just my husband and myself and us believing in Jesus and having him walk beside us. But I need guidance, I need knowledge, and understanding and support on how and what to do,not just this second or the next few days or weeks. I'm talking about until whenever the end of all this is, not only to help guide myself and my husband but for us to be there in a mass gathering of God's people and to help protect one another and help other people in any way that I can an have them as my family and be by there side through this just as they'd be there to be by my side through this . I'm not trying to join or form a group of people,im just trying to join or form a group that's the right group,the group that stands up for God and fights to protect each others life and follow Jesus!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Revelation 21:3
    When did Jesus say the dead in Christ would be resurrected?

    John 6:39-40: Jesus said, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up ON THE LAST DAY.

    John 6:44: Jesus said, "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up ON THE LAST DAY."

    Is the LAST DAY the thousand year reign of Christ?

    I believe so....then it is eternity and time is counted no more

    So if Jesus himself said the dead in Christ will be raised on the LAST DAY, and Paul said we who are alive and remain will not be caught up (raptured) until AFTER the dead are raised, then where does secret pre-trib rapture fit in?

    Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

    In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.
  • Adam - in Reply on Romans 1
    This comment is a false interpretation. What's ironic is the very chapter that's being critiqued predicted this sentiment in verses 20-25. Those with a closed and darkened heart won't comprehend it.
  • NO MANDELA EFFECT mishael on Isaiah 13:10
    There is NO Mandela Effect.

    God is the Alpha (beginning) and the Omega ( the Ending).

    He exists outside of time and inside of time. He sees us from start to end. He's keeping a record too. Our deeds and evil communication.

    The angels keep a written record of All the things we say about God. Like: God is wonderful! Look how beautiful the stars in the sky are. I want a tee shirt the same color as that butterfly God made. I wonder if God would make it rain today? (And He did :)

    We can't sneak anything past Him, either.

    I wish I had a book like that. Maybe I could be kinder to my grouchy neighbors....

    Gotta go. Babysitting Grandson tomorrow. Have a blessed Friday.

    Someone go on YouTube and listen to Carman's Song: Sunday's on the Way.

    You'll love it.
  • Lisa Chapman - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 3:8
    Hi Emma,

    I pray that you are doing well. After reading your post, I realized just how important it really is for us to have faith in God as our protector, just as He is our Creator. Have faith. The shootings you hear are most likely a result of violence, and as long as you are not involved you are not a target. Also, it is best they do not ever see you look in their direction. Don't try to see where it is coming from, or who is shooting. If it is in fact a murder taking place, if they see you see them, it is likely you will then be shot as a result of witnessing them commit murder. Pray, and always have trust and faith in God that He is your protector and provider of all things needed. :)

    Many Blessings,

    Lisa Chapman
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 6
    I think Isaiah may of seen or heard a computer. Read this:

    Isaiah 8:19

    And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits (demons), and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

    Technology is how the Antichrist will eventually hunt people down.

    Should we hoard some aluminum? Does that work? I don't know that either.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 16
    You can find many scripture of wisdom in Proverbs and Psalms.

    Actually the Bible was somewhat downsized. Not all Books were canonized into it.

    Romans is one of my favorites. I like that dilemma Paul was having in chapter 7: the "I" chapter. I used to know how many times he said it. You count for me.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Mark 13
    Jesus surrendered his power when he came to Earth as the Son of Man. He did miracles by the power God.

    Jesus had not released the Holy Spirit on earth till after he had returned to Heaven.
  • Marriage by Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 10
    I suggest DATING. That is when you really get to know what that person likes; what they do with their time; money; how they honor their parents;

    Do they own a Bible? Do you see them read it? If you say we need to conserve moneydo they do it? Has any of her ex's stalked her; threatened her?

    You need to date till you've answered many of these questions.

    Read 1 Corinthians 7, the marriage chapter. If your Bible has center of each page columns, read those references too.

    Certainly read 1 Corinthians 13

    Selah means, pause, and think on these things.

  • UNITED STATES in PROPHESYMishael on Genesis 6
    I've read in a book on Prophesies ( they're out there. Buy one)

    That America/United States is called in prophesy: Islands in the Sea. That's because the continents are surrounded by water. Also, Britain, Scotland, Australia and others.

    Here are the scriptures:

    Isaiah 11:11

    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    Isaiah 13:22

    And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

    Isaiah 41:1

    Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

    Isaiah 42:12

    Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.

    Isaiah 42:15

    I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.

    Isaiah 59:18

    According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.

    Jeremiah 50:39

    Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.

    America is not without sin. Plenty of people describe it as the new whore of Babylon.

    Have we not seen people who murder, shoot up synagogues, set them on fire: rain hatred on them sunup to past midnight?

    How many churched people have come in here recently, saying, despite going to church regular, they barely know anything about scripture or prophesy? Quite a bit.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 12:14
    America because of Church and State mostly being kept separate thereby allowing citizenship separate from baptism has been a resting place for the Bride for times. The beautiful time and place where children could be raised to understand the call of the Lord in due time to His repentance and peace and then be properly baptized into the Bride. It seems that the wait for the return for the Lord has become to lengthy for many professing Christians. Non- resistance teachings have been buried in the coming together of Church and State in politics and then the promoting a future reign of Christ on earth instead of an in earth reign of Christ, which is now. The Bride will only keep herself unto Him in faithfulness no matter the world events natural or man-made.

  • Phil - in Reply on Genesis 12
    Hi Chris - Really appreciate your response. If I'd only clicked on the link below the photo in the Wiki article in the first place, it would have led me to the source. It appears the passage in question originates from the 1609 old testament translation of the Latin Vulgate into English by scholars at the Catholic Seminary English College in Douai, France. The Latin Vulgate version was commissioned by Pope Damasus in 382 and a direct translation from the Hebrew Tanakh. Thus, the book of Ecclesiasticus from which the Saint Mary Cathedral quote sprang is much closer to the text in the Hebrew bible. If one compares the King James version of the bible with the Douay-Rheims edition, it can be quite revelatory. Again, thank you for your informative reply.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 2 Peter 2:20
    Listen to some Charles Capps too: Authority of the believer. We have to know we have authority over demons.

    Every time they start to manifest; if you're not alone get in the parked car and start binding by using their names. Speak out your authority. Mention the holy blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

    There's a demon that masquerades using Jesus's name. I'll try to find that list of demon names in the Bible.

    I don't know if many doctors would have knowledge of this. You can make calls and try to find a deliverance minister affiliated through a church.
  • Dannette on Luke 7:23
    Explain Luke 7:26 to me?
  • Rick Colombe on Acts 12:4
    To Ted Duke on Acts 12:4. Herod placed Peter in chains until after Easter, because Herod had to give homage to the queen of heaven , or rather goddess of fertility during "Easter". With that said, I pray you'll do your research Ted Duke where you'll find the true meaning behind the Easter celebration. It has nothing to do with the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Those Easter eggs and rabbits are in honor of the goddess of fertility Ted. Much of Christianity has been "hood winked" by practicing Easter with its pagan practices.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 12
    Phil, I had to do a little research on that. The best I could come up with is that the verse you've given is found in the Sirach chapter 4 in the Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA).

    However, this Book Sirach has also been identified with the Apocryphal Book, Ecclesiasticus, the Wisdom of Sirach. But when I looked for this verse in Ecclesiasticus, there was nothing, so my guess that the verse in question only appears in certain 'publications' (e.g. Douay-Rheims) & those that the RCs subscribe to.

  • I personally believe the virus is real, but that there's a gross overreaction. It's a disproportionate reaction to the threat. Other communicable diseases that killed more in the past were mostly ignored by the media in comparison to this. They were also ignored by governors. I think there are political reasons for the media to play it up so much and believe they are mostly pushing lies and political propaganda.

    If people genuinely cared about saving lives and the well being of citizens then number 1 would be immediately stop murdering babies. Today 3,500 babies were legally murdered in the US. What about their right to choose, their rights to grow up, to love, and be loved. What about the loving parents who could have adopted them, but instead they butchered them. It's many times worse than the holocaust and no one seems to care.

    Also, smoking kills up to half a million people in the US every year and no one seems to care. Drugs and alcohol kill even more. If someone calls the Wuhan virus a pandemic, then that is absolutely nothing compared to the real threats and top causes of death. Obesity is another one. 2/3 of Americans overweight and its an epidemic and out of control. Huge number of deaths from it, like heart disease, cancer, etc. But I don't see cultural change over that either. These 3 things mentioned are significantly more life threatening than the virus from china.
