    Thanks for your input here; indeed, this is a great place to visit to maybe learn more of God's Word or even to share your thoughts & revelations from the Spirit. Though our discussions can get quite 'spirited' at times, hopefully keeping them in the bounds of holiness & decency. I too have used KJBOnline often, as my 'Go To' when working on a message at my desk, but became interested further when checking out the Discussions Tab: a great way to share, learn & even unknowingly, helping someone struggling in their faith - it can become quite an effective ministry if soaked in prayer & the Spirit's guidance. The Lord bless you too & trust that your eye issue will be sorted out.
  • Rosie on Genesis 10
    what was the main point in St. Luke 2:39-52?
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 3
    That was an interesting read; thanks for your insights into this very important teaching.
  • Bob on Genesis 7
    For Gloria and those interested, Every man and "Womb"man or woman have their own spirit or Ghost. Jesus is different, He has the same spirit or ghost as His father, so even though they are two people and have life in themselves, they are the totally connected by the one spirit. How many times have you heard "That boy is just like his father", well Jesus is so much like His father that He is His father only in a visible form. All things were created through "the Son" and He visited, walked and talked on the earth long before He was known as Jesus. This is important for JW's etc to understand as it will transform the way they read scripture in the King James and answer many questions for those who do not understand the deity of God and free them from the watchtower society views and its alteration of scripture due to not understanding the simplicity of Gods dominion. Father who cannot be seen (way too big), Son who can be seen..creator..visitor...saviour....same spirit.. same in every way..

    Regarding Noah and those critters who went in two and two, if you read carefully, you will find there were 4 of every kind, two females and two males, except for the ones who were 7 boys and 7 girls. The ark was the size of a modern aircraft carrier from world war 2. It could easily carry all those animals and have a whole deck just for people. Amazing stuff for his day. Imagine looking at that ark all finished after around 110 years work...Phew..all done ..nearly.
  • Dianny Camacho on Genesis 10
    This is not Ecclesiastes, this is Ecclesiasticus, see the difference?
  • Laura Perez on Proverbs 11
    Kathy F. The Most High calls us a treasure. You are a treasure and a precious gem to HIM. When you've received a gift is it on display or is it neatly wrapped with a beautiful ribbon. How do you dress if you were going to have dinner with the president? How would you dress if you were going to have dinner with some one you respected and looked up to. You would dress with respect for yourself respect for the person whom you're having dinner with. Let the holy spirit teach you how to dress. I've never seen a princess running around half naked. You don't have to dress like every one else modesty is beautiful!!!!
  • Sara Hallett on Acts 20:9
    12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted. Acts 20:12

    Translation, please.
  • Greg - in Reply on James 1

    I appreciate your comments and thoughts on this matter.

    The many different views and ideas that come from this type of discussion are valuable to the overall understanding of Scripture.

    I will leave you with this concerning the Seventh Day vs. the First Day.

    I will hold to my understanding that if God or Jesus wanted us to change His day of rest, They would have made it abundantly clear. Correct interpretation of Scripture will justify a position. Any application to other thoughts or ideas may be welcome, but it cannot alter the interpretation. Inference is not the best way to justify a position. I have to remind myself of this all the time.

    If Christ foretold us ALL THINGS (Mark 13:23), why did He not clearly explain this changing of the 7th day to us as everything else we needed to know was.

    Acts 18:4 can be used as an example that after Christ died, and rose from the dead, Paul was continually teaching in the synagogues on every Sabbath day, to both Greeks and Jews.

    I believe that there is no particular day in which you worship more than any other day. That is a 7 day a week plan.

    I believe that one day out of seven (the 7th day) the body should rest (as per instruction by our heavenly Father).

    According to our current (Gregorian) 365 day calendar, the days slide (so to speak). For instance, your birthday might be on a Monday this year, but will slide to Tuesday (or possibly Wednesday) the following year.

    So then, technically, this year's Sunday was last year's Saturday.

    Is it Sunday because we are told so?

    Among the findings of the Dead Sea Scrolls was the book of Enoch.

    The book of Enoch contains the priestly Solar Calendar (ch. 72, 82). It is a 364 day calendar based on 52 seven day weeks.

    It is a perfect solar priestly calendar used by the Israelites for thousands of years. This amazing calendar resets every year.

    The DSS are a wealth of (seemingly untapped) information for Biblical students.
  • Sheila Hedgepeth on Galatians 6
    in Galatians 6:2 it says "Bear ye one another burdens. in Galatians 6:5 it says " for every man shall bear his own burden." I'm confused.
  • Alex on Isaiah 1
    Isaiah 1 v 13 Comments about the Sabbath and the works of the LAW as in Isaiah 1 v 13. Bring no more Vain oblations, incense unto me ; your new moons and Sabbaths, i cannot, calling of assemblies ( Churches ) I cannot, away with it ; it is iniquity,Even your solemn assembles. Your new moons and your appointed feast my soul Hates.Now Paul said he was afraid of them, they observed Sabbaths and months and times and years they were just like the Israel of old, they honored God with their mouths but their Hearts were far from him Jesus said . Always remember there was none righteous no not one . The LAW was just a school teacher to lead us to Christ. The law was Screaming mankind needed to be bornagain of an incorruptible seed which was the seed of Promise the living WORD OF GOD .Abraham and issac and Jacob pointed to this situation as Issac was the Child of Promise, just as ABRAHAM had to be multiplied in Jacobs seed ( resulting in the nation of israel ) so in Christ seed the H.G will be multiplied in humanity the Israel of God as the field is the world,being bornagain of an incorruptible seed etc We do not need circumcision OF THE FLESH any more nor do we need a 24 hr. sabbath we need circumcision of the HEART and a Sabbath that neva ends ( his kingdom will neva end ) That day of rest IS in CHRIST JESUS HE IS OUR SABBATH DAY WHICH WILL NEVA END. Abide in me and i in you forever an eternal REST. A new Jerusalem which is the Kingdom of God as old Jerusalem was like Hagar and in bondage with her children .
  • DH - in Reply on Proverbs 6:16
    Is the Lord going to come before the Antichrist and Tribulation and us having to take the mark of the beast.
  • Tiffan Morrow - in Reply on James 1
    Chris, absolutely! Paul speaks wisely. If we know nothing about Satan and his sudle ways, many of whom , I have watched fall right into his trap. I have said many many times and will always say it, " I am in this world, not of this world". I am not perfect, however, I follow what the bible teaches me, I do not take part of the bible that suit my life. I read and try my best everyday to implement my life according to every word written! Satan has fouled so many over the years, they argue with you bc if they were to not do the things they are doing then they would have to deny their flesh! My eternal life in Heaven is more important than anything or anyone on this earth! Amen, God Bless!

  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    I remember at one time in Karachi, Pakistan, my team were out on our daily book sales & tract distribution to Muslims. I wasn't having a good day, so thought to try for a sale at a bookshop. The owner was so interested in my literature, he bought my whole shoulder bag full of books & tracts! So, I went back to the team empty-handed & with praise for what the Lord had done. But, the Lord's Ways were beyond my limited sight at that time. On my way back from that sale, I turned around for some reason & noticed that that wasn't an ordinary bookshop, but was one attached to a Mosque & the central point for the sale of Islamic literature. Had I been aware of this fact, I would have quickly retreated, but the Lord had other plans for me & them. So, the Lord in His Providence had directed me to a Mosque to sell Christian books, they bought everything, they then sold those books unknowingly to other Muslims responding to the call for prayer (i.e. they helped in getting out the Word when I couldn't), & there may well be lost souls now finding the Saviour's Love. Jeremiah 32:27: "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?" What an amazing God we serve, Who just needed a pair of hands & legs to get His Word out to those appointed to Life. And a little 'icing on the cake': I got out of there with my life & He also answered our prayers that morning as we had all but run out of cash to survive.

    What the Lord can do with His trusting children!"

    Awesome! Have you ever wrote this down in article form- like 2 to 5 pages long? I would love to send this out to my email-blast readers in Ohio and beyond. I try to encourage people to share their faith. Most are not risking their lives adn should be willing to share the gospel with those around them but 98% do not share their faith regularly.
  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    "Hi Robert, good to catch up again. I fully realize that we all have many commitments so wasn't expecting any responses, though I had thought about you in the interim & trusted the Lord that you were well. So thanks for the added comments & no, I haven't heard of David Wood - will check him out.

    I could use prayer for stomach problems and back. Found out I was born with a mild form of spina bifida and now understand why I started dealing with back issues as early as my early-30's. I will be 53 soon. Prayers appreciated. I do believe God still heals. He did heal me of a problem in my early walk. David's ministry is called Acts17apologetics. he has almost 500,000 subscribers now. maybe you can team up with him on evangelism. He does debates also.

    I'm sure you too have many great stories to tell in your encounters with those of other faiths. And all these are not to bring us into the limelight, but all praise to the Lord Who superintends our ways.

    My best stories were in my youth. I hit the streets with gospel tracts when I was 16 with two other hippies at that time. People were so much more receptive back then. Hearts are getting hard with many. It's cool when the Holy Spirit shows up with a divine appointment or you get a word of knowledge. I've been doing most of my evangelism online for about 10 years now. Built a 12 x 6 cross in 2007 that we went around with. that was interesting. "Hey, Jesus didn't have a wheel." It opened up doors as people came to you. My zeal isn't where it was when I was younger in the Lord. I want thta back. I think about, "Why bother anymore? People don't care about the things of God or care to repent and come to Christ" and then I think what if Jesus had that attitude int he Garden of Gethsemane? I guess I and maybe you too don't always feel like sharing the gospel but we must press on even on the days we dont' feel like it. Pray for me for more zeal.
  • Cher - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    This is all I have in response because it all boils down to God's word and faith.

    God didn't say to have faith in objects and he speaks against any idolizing of objects.

    God said clear and simply trust in him. Through him all things are possible.

    If you choose to put your faith into a government organization who uses practice of the khabal for evil and lying about facts, I will pray for you my friend to open your eyes.

    Is God a Spirit or human
  • Onataghogho Atikpe - in Reply on Matthew 10:16
    Thank you Onyekachukwu for your beautiful comment. It is very explanatory. Let me add that the serpent is a very sensitive creature. Though very harmful is wise enough to be able to survive in the most unfriendly habitat. I also think that Jesus Christ was telling us that in a world that is often at variance with the belief and doctrine of the church, we must apply great wisdom just like the serpent often does, to survive without conforming to the world. So when we go out there to fulfil the mandate of the master, chances are that some will definitely resist us. However wisdom demands that we leave quietly when rejected but dust our shoes out there as a witness that they have heard the gospel but rejected it.
  • Kat pearson on 1 Corinthians 15
    In chapter 15 v51 is wrong you put trump when the Bible says trumpet will sound !!! Stop changing Gods world !! Ppl read your paper back this being stating wrong God is not please !!! This is not about Trump!!!! Chapter 15: 52
  • Silas on Luke 21:26
    To God is power,Jesus is love comment above.jesus said ,I have come in my father's name.if you see the son you see the father.Jesus said ,all power is been given to me.for there is no other name under heaven where by we must be saved.Do every thing in word and deed,do everything in the name of Jesus.we pray over the sick in that name.we bless our meals in that name.we suppose to baptize in that name,but a lot of us dont.we need to pray over everything in Jesus see Jesus is the Father,He is the Son and He is the HolySpirit.because these three are One.
  • Alex on Galatians 4:11
    Comments by Alex on the old covenant and the Sabbath day Read Galatians 4 v 11 KJV. I am afraid of you Paul says ye observe days ( the sabbath day ) months and Times and years etc. Jesus said the law and the prophets were until John since that Time the Kingdom of God is preached and all men press into it. Now under this New covenant the Kingdom of GOD IS WITHIN US 24/7 NOT 1 DAY A WEEK ,i feel just like Paul i am afraid of you ppl. What the law cd NOT do in that it was weak thru the flesh,God had to send his son in the form of sinful flesh to condemn sin in the flesh simply b/c the law cd NOT do it there is no more sabbath in Christ Jesus, Abide in me and i in you is a 24/7 Not one day a week, the kingdom of God has to be within us 24/7 as the scripture says the branches have to abide in the vine 24/7 not 1 day a week, the disciples followed Jesus 24/7 not 1 day a week. Our bodies are his temple 24/7 if ya have the H.G. That day of rest is in Christ Jesus a 1000 yr. day when Christ will reign on this earth that Kingdom that has not end. The mystery of the kingdom of God is christ in you 24/7 ok gbu
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 4:13
    Sheila, I'm unsure whether you are referring to Hebrews 11:1:

    "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

    This is one of the great descriptions of Faith in the Bible. To explain this: the words 'substance' & 'evidence' (in that verse) tell us about things we can physically see or can be proven without any doubt. So what you have around your home or with family members are all real & seeing them doesn't require any faith from you.

    What happens when you've planned to go on a holiday? The holiday hasn't happened yet, but you are hoping that nothing will stop you going. Is this faith? No, it's still only a hope. You could say, "I have faith that it will happen", but if there can be a possibility of it not happening, then it's what we say, is a misdirected faith. Then this awful virus starts up & all your plans are cancelled so you've lost all hope of going on holiday.

    That's what it's like on the Earth: we can hope for something but we really don't know for sure that it will happen for us. But, when the Bible speaks of Hebrews 11 Faith, we see that we can only use it when God gives His Promise for it to happen. So, if you believe that there is a God & a Heaven (both you can't see), then it means that your faith is based on God's Word & not on your sight. This is Real Faith as you believe according to His Word that His Word is sure. Some people also know about God but are uncertain about Him - no faith - no Heaven.

    Noah built a large boat. He may not have seen a flood from rain but still built a strange vessel that seemed of little value & purpose. But he demonstrated faith, because he believed God & trusted God that this vessel would somehow save these few people & animals & a flood would somehow cover the Earth & wipe out all left behind. I hope this explanation helps you understand that Faith is believing (as in, seeing) that something is there or will happen from God's Word, even when there's no evidence for it.
  • Tim Legarie - in Reply on Psalms 1:5
    Acts, physical acts,bend your knee's and pray.Ask God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit to guide you.Fearing God is the of start of wisdom.People do not carry the keys to life and heaven.Have faith in the good book,so much knowledge, write down what may help you in your situation, or to help someone else in there journey.Be thankfull in all things, God could be trying to teach you, listen to him.
  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 98:4
    Psalms 98 is the 98th psalm of the Book of Psalms, generally known in English by its first verse, in the King James Version, "O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things". The Book of Psalms is the third section of the Hebrew Bible, and a book of the Christian Old Testament. In the Greek Septuagint version of the bible, and in its Latin translation in the Vulgate, this psalm is Psalms 97 in a slightly different numbering system. In Latin, it is known as "Cantate Domino".[1] The psalm is a hymn psalm, one of the Royal Psalms, praising God as the King of His people.

    The psalm is a regular part of Jewish, Catholic, Anglican and Protestant liturgies. It has been set to music often.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ephesians 6
    Sheila, when we look at this chapter in Ephesians from verse 10, we see the apostle Paul speaking about the Devil (v11). So when he speaks about "flesh & blood" you have understood this correctly, that it refers to people. So the contrast to this fight is found in the spiritual realm, the part of the invisible world of spirits that our human eyes cannot see.

    The mention of "principalities, powers, rulers of darkness & spiritual wickedness" are all terms referring to this spirit world of evil. And we know that the god of this world is the devil (2 Corinthians 4:4, John 12:31, 16:11) for he rules for now, capturing the hearts of many, seducing & causing them to believe in his lies. He's have a wild time with mankind & knows that his days are numbered when he, his wicked demons, & all who reject the Lord & His Christ, will one day be locked away forever - all sin will have gone & we will return to the beauty & perfection which was in Eden.

    You mentioned specifically 'principalities'. A principality is an area, whether small or large, that is ruled by a prince. My earlier Bible references speak of this 'prince'. He has ruined God's creation with sin & suffering & has a host of angels (demons) that do his bidding. He wreaks havoc over the world, yet so many are blissfully unaware of his presence & power & believe this is a normal life we live. But those who have put their trust in God & attend to His Word are Satan's prime targets & we need to remain vigilant, putting on the whole armour of God (vv 13-18) & defeat him daily in the Lord's Power. We can't get away from it - we are in a fight - the battle will be long - but the end is victory through Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).
  • Richard on 1 Timothy 1
    If Paul received mercy in verse 13 because he was ignorant, does that mean to [sin willfully] like it says in Hebrews then mean you have no hope?
  • Pillar OF Earth - in Reply on Hosea 10:12
    Job 9:6

    Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

    Psalms 75:3 (Read whole chapter)

    The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.

    Joel 2:30

    And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

    I don't know why this is important to you. May I suggest that you use this Websites Search Engine when you come in here.

    A thorough search of pillars. Be sure to read all scripture pointed to; in those center of the page reference columns.
  • I7sharp - in Reply on Luke 14:26
    Chris, what a "coincidence" that, while I was going through a few threads with some concern about the health of my left eye, I came upon your


    However, thinking further on your plight, I also have something similar happening to me. However, mine is a medical matter with the eyes which I've had since I was a kid:


    This is the very first time, I think, that I have read through discussions here although I have visited many, many times for some time now.

    I could sense that you are a very gentle soul and that was, mainly, what prompted me to post this comment.

    By the way, I have come to this part of the forum, some minutes after I had started looking for commentaries on "the islands of the sea" (Isaiah 11:11).

    God bless you. Have a blessed day!
  • Headship in Marriage - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    1 Corinthians 11:3

    But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

    Ephesians 5:23

    For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

    Ephesians 4:15

    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:


    If both partners are Christians, then the headship indicated in these few verses, show how it works. As the husband follows Jesus, the wife should have no trouble following her husbands lead.

    If there is disagreement, then the two should find scripture to work out a reconciliation.

    If one of you is an unbeliever in Jesus; marriage may difficult at times. It is the witness of the saved partner, and their behavior that may bring the unsaved to believe in Jesus one day.

    1 Corinthians 7 is the marriage chapter. 1 Corinthians 13 is the Love chapter.

    I hope this helps you. Mishael
