  • Michael homan on Matthew 25
    Another meaning to the 10 virgin parable is.

    5 were ready and 5 were not.They were not ready for Christs kinda like a suprise visit.or return

    He says 'No one knows when I return'

    Its best to be ready for the surprise visit,and on the look out..

    Bob, I think the question we would ask is, what did Jesus' parents, his siblings, disciples & the people call Him? It certainly wouldn't have been Jesus (English) or Yesus (Yay-soos - Gk). It was very likely 'Yeshua'. And I agree, 'Yeshu', could certainly not have been applied to Jesus by those who knew & loved Him, which as you know, is an acronym for a curse on Him: 'yimakh shemo ve zikhro = may his name & memory be obliterated. One day, they will see the One Whom they cursed & rejected, now high & lifted up, coming again in judgement against them, as God's Messiah.

    So the matter is, whether for us who speak English & read from an English Bible, should it be compulsory to use 'Jesus' as opposed to the Greek or Hebrew? Or, by using 'Yeshua', have we done any disservice to the normal meaning & understanding of the Scriptures? A further question: do those who consistently use 'Yeshua', ever revert to using 'Jesus' at other times? And, Why?

    At least, we know that the 'Yeshua' used by Hebrew speakers has the same meaning to the Messianic Jews though seen & used according to fulfilment to prophecies of Him. Unlike the 'Allah' in Islam/Arabic, which is difficult to equate to God (English), or Khuda (Urdu, amongst Christians), since the Doctrine of God can be quite different in its details. As too with 'Isa' in Islam/Arabic to 'Yesu' (Urdu, with Christians): different meaning again.

    And yes, have we forgotten the Name, Emmanuel, which is so important especially in establishing the incarnation?
  • PRAYER OF AGREEMENT on Revelation 12
    Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if TWO OF YOU shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

    Hebrews 11:1 Now FAITH is the substance of things. (healing; jobs;food;rent, businesses, loneliness, blessing on home & family members; drug & alcohol deliverance, & more)

    HOPED FOR, the evidence of things not seen.

    Now the just shall live by FAITH, but if any man/ woman draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

    Let us hold fast the profession of our FAITH without wavering (for He is faithful that promised).

    Let us draw near with a true heart, In full assurance of FAITH.

    But without FAITH it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God, must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarded of them that diligently seek Him.

    And the prayer of FAITH shall save the SICK. and the Lord shall raise him up, and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

    Father God, these people have come here today to ask for prayer as touching their needs. They are here to ask for your help. They have read your Word on how Faith works. Being fully convinced that You are here too, they have set their concerns before You.

    I pray that You will reward them for Seeking You, in child-like Faith; and answer their prayers according to your riches in glory. They are here for healing in body and mind; in anxiety over the pandemic, employment and lack of employment. Family concerns and need of peace in their homes. Lead them with your eye and show them the path to take for a desired result. Be at work inside of their own wills to Follow Jesus and look to the Bible for guidance, day to day. Help them to see through eyes full of faith through the Light of your eyes. Give our hearts strength to get from one day to the next, by Your abundant Grace and Mercy.

    We bless Your Holy Name and give you Thanks for provision and the Love of Jesus.

    Amen! Praise the Lord!!!
  • Chris - in Reply on Mark 10:9
    Steve, you are right that all sin can be forgiven except for blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, for which the Jewish leaders were particularly guilty of. We can ask the Lord for forgiveness of sins & then find peace in our hearts from that wrong & restored fellowship with the Lord.

    However, with the sin of adultery, or other sins such as murder, rape, etc., one then has to live with that decision for the rest of his life. And with adultery, no forgiveness can ever take away from the reality of the daily hurt & shame that is brought about by this act. If as a believer, one wilfully sins (a premeditated act) expecting that God's forgiveness as the cure all, then how are we different to anyone else who might believe that sinning is of no consequence as God always forgives, or even as some RCs who go weekly into the confessional to receive absolution?

    When a believer falls into sin, it amounts to a 'slip up' because of our weakness in the flesh, where maybe a lie is spoken to get out of trouble, or a nasty word or burst of anger in response to a situation, or even that sexual thought of someone else. We realize our sin & seek forgiveness. How does that then work out when there is a planned execution of sin, knowing that that is not what God allows? Does God still forgive this? And if He does, will He still continue to forgive many times over? Or for that matter, can we really regard our righteous standing before God through His salvation as real? These would be some of the questions that I would be compelled to consider if planning to commit sin. I'm not in any way suggesting this of you, but a personal view of wilful sin & doing despite to His work of Salvation & giving of His Spirit.

    Father God, You said, whatever things I ask when I pray, believe I receive them, and I will have them! (Mark 11:24)

    I now speak directly to the sickness or disease, in Jesus' name: spine trauma, pain; substance addiction; that is now in my body, I command you to die, in the name of Jesus. I go to the root cause of the problem, and command the root of this sickness to die and disappear, in the name of Jesus. I command all pain and lying symptoms of illness to Go! now and not return, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I command complete healing to take place and manifest in my body now, in Jesus' name. I receive Your healing power right now; I command it to flow through my body and free me from pain, all other discomfort, and all symptoms of sickness now, in Jesus' name.

    My faith is in your Word in Luke 4:18. You took my infirmities, my sickness and injured body; and by Your stripes I Am Healed! You took all my diseases into your body when You were crucified and died, So that I can be healed and live in perfect health.

    When Satan lies and says I'm not healed, I will counter with Luke 4:8, 4:12 and 4:4. Write your Word on my heart so I can fight the good fight Of faith and be victorious over all mine enemies of doubt. I will sing your praise and strengthen my faith by reading the Bible faithfully with zeal.

    Father God, you said in Your Word...and it is impossible for the Creator of the Heavens and the earth to lie...You are the God Who Heals Me. I believe You, I speak this healing prayer for me and MIX it with my FAITH.

    I give you my life, and receive your Life, into my body, soul and spirit: my Savior, my Lord and my Healer. I will keep my eyes on You throughout this time of healing and restoration. My testimony belongs to you. You are my Source.

    In Jesus Name; Name above all other names named. Thank you.

    This will be stored in the 1-100 history pages so you can pray it as often as you need to. Blessings on your recovery.
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Samuel 13:20
    Alex, I would have liked to send you a link that I believe will give you more information that you are seeking, but I'll try doing it this way:

    Go to the site: StackExchange. At Search All Sites, type in How could Jesus be descended. Hopefully, you will see the first discussion that has one David Connor giving a very useful reply.

    Personally, I've always had a sense that this Holy Seed from God was implanted in Mary without any contribution from Mary's body towards the growth & development of the embryo. In other words, the embryo was sustained & nurtured in the womb by the Spirit & that Jesus' birth through humanity was purely to provide an incarnation & physical evidence of a Davidic lineage. We know that God could have just as easily taken His Word & clothed Him in humanity to accomplish His purposes without the need of a physical birth. But He chose to use humanity to achieve that end, to fulfil prophecy concerning the Davidic line of His Messiah (Isaiah 11:1-5).

    I then use this rationale to believe that Jesus was born into the world without a sin nature (unlike us), & that at His temptation (Matthew 4), Satan's sole objective was to force upon Jesus a sin nature, just as He did to Adam & Eve. Unlike the first Adam, the Last Adam withstood Satan using His Own Word. I should also say, that I know of some believers that believe that Jesus was born with a sin nature (through Mary) as we have also through our parents, but He resisted Satan so as to not succumb to sin (unlike us). I don't accept this view as it compromises the Holiness of God & His Seed.

    But this is the other side of your question that leads to your enquiry as to which line does Jesus' ancestry go through & how that is accomplished, & therefore my comment above doesn't answer what you want to know, but may help. So I hope that Site will offer you more guidance in this.

    Acts 2:38

    "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" Luke 5:32

    "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

    Pray this prayer with sincerity of heart

    "Dear God, I believe in you and that your Son, Jesus Christ, is Lord. I believe in His sacrifice for my sins and His resurrection from the dead. I repent and ask forgiveness for my sins and I'm deciding now to follow you. Please, come into my life through the gift of your Holy Spirit. It is in the Lord Jesus' name that I ask and receive, Amen."

    The Bible says doing these things with sincerity means you are a Christian (Christ follower) and will have eternal life in heaven.

    "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." 1 John 5:13

    Use caution in trusting your feelings, as feelings change. Stand on God's promises- they never change.

    Read John 3 in your Bible, or get a Bible at goodwill.

    Go to: 1 John 1:9 (back of the Bible) to confess any new things or thoughts you sense needs to be confessed.

    Keep coming back here :)

    Take her to the hospital if she has done this over 3 days! Don't tell her where you're taking her.

    A spirit of death is courting her. I will write again. Humans can only Go 3 days without water.
  • Jim on Psalms 25
    GLOWING UP AS a kid I NEVER KNEW what God meant to me. I'm grow now and I can't go another day without prayer. Because what God have done for me, I have to praise him. Give God the praise and honor that he so rightly deserves. Fear God, for what he will not do for you if you done honor him. Fear God for his goodness, for his mercy and his grace. Come to God in prayer, or in song. Tell everyone how good he is. He let us all see another day. And I realize that everything I do without going to prayer first. If I DIDN'T believe in my Lord and savior, I most likely will not be here today. The Lord is my rock. My high tower. I can talk to the Lord at any time. Hallelujah, glory to God. In reference to Psalms 25.

  • Standing in the Gap For THIS Nation on Matthew 24:9
    Ezekiel 22

    23 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

    24 Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation.

    25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets (Politicians?) in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.

    26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between THE HOLY AND THE PROFANE and neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.

    27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get DISHONEST GAIN.

    28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath NOT spoken.

    29 The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully.

    30 And I sought for a man among them, that should MAKE UP THE HEDGE, and STAND IN THE GAP BEFORE ME for the land, that I should not destroy it: BUT I FOUND NONE.

    31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

    Comment by Mishael: No one really teaches different kinds of prayer anymore. The kind where you spend Friday nights in Church, interceding and doing some warfare: for their Church, the community, the Governor, the President, everyone loves to hate.

    Standing in the gap: means there's a hole in the wall & someone stands in it till it's fixed secure.

    Will someone teach that?!!!!
  • Steve Lynch on Genesis 1:2
    The earth was created perfect but it became void an without form. and the reason was because of satan's rebellion against god. and he drew in a third of god's children by his diseption. so what was once perfectly made then became void and without form. so god destroyed that earth age. we were all in our spiritual bodies then before god destroyed the first earth age. so then god brought forth the second earth age that we are living in now. but sin came into this earth age and it grieve god that he had made man in the flesh. but wasn't willing for man in the flesh to do that he himself wouldn't do us. so he was manifested in the flesh as jesus christ. and he gave his life on the cross for all of mankind. so now we have a choice to accept him as our lord an saviour an be redeemed of our sins by asking for his forgiveness. god was not willing that anyone would perish. so he sheds his grace on us all through jesus giving his life on the cross at calvary.

    Persecution of the remnant church in the wicked USA shall bring about repentance. Praying for this country means nothing without repentance and turning from the things God hates. Judgment shall be good for the church and the wicked.

    1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

    There comes a time when the Lord is done with evil as recorded in Jeremiah

    Jeremiah 7:16 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.

    Jeremiah 11:14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.

    I believe this is where America and the EU are today.

    I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

    I just found this site a little while back and I have liked it more than any I have seen so far! Our Country is in trouble right now and I do not know who to blame any more than anyone else does! They think they do but I know I don't! Right now I think that the most important thing any of us can do is pray for our Country! It is in big trouble, big, big trouble! Record sales on guns and ammo, hate coming from everywhere, why? We have always needed God in our lives and now we need him more than ever! When it all comes to a head if we have God then we have nothing to worry about at all!! A day in Heaven is like a million times better that the best day you have ever had on this earth in your life! I won't that, what about you? I truly believe that you should do everything that you can do to fix things before you start asking God to do it for you! He will help us but I also believe he expects us to try our best to! I am just a old hard working simple Man! I worked all my life for my Family so my Kids and my Wife could have a good life and we did but the biggest regret I have raising my Kids is I did not take them to Church and teach them about God and Jesus Christ! My Mother did! A Child needs a Father and Mother growing up to ask questions to about life and if they do not have one then they will try to find all the answers on there own and then you got big trouble!! I never had a Dad I could go to because I really think it was the way he was raised, in a house with a mean dad that beat his Mother and even tried to kill my Dad one time with a axe and he just did not know how to be a Dad! He had to die with a million questions in his head! He was a good Man and loved my Mother with all his heart and never one time when I was with him did he ever comment on another woman when we were out together, never one time did he even look at them! I know you think I am crazy but it is the truth because I started watching when I go older. Lets pray for this Country! Amen!
  • Steve Lynch on Mark 10:9
    It is ok for a person to remary because adultry is not a unforgivable sin. you both repent of any sin and jesus will forgive you. otherwise it would be like saying that christ can't forgive sin. and there's only one unforgivable sin an that is to blasheme against the holy spirit.
  • Steve Lynch on John 3:5
    Born again in the greek means born from above. and the water is the bag of water in the mother's womb. that's why the word said that the lord knew you before you were in your mother's womb. and the batism represents the reserection of christ. you are born into the flesh and you go under the water to represent the burial of christ. then when you are brought back up it represents the resurection of christ. your spirit and soul enter into the flesh at conception. so that's where the born again comes from. and yes we should be baptized as christ was.

    You are so right on. My left hip has bothered me for years. It used to be in my right hip but moved to the left side! That's why I know it's a spirit. Cause upon being prayed for it moved to the left side. So I'm using your prayer to take it down. Thanks and God bless.

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    Why do people ignore the name Emmanuel / Immanuel? it is in both the old and new testaments.

    Yeshua or Jesus? Heresy or Hebrew roots? Is Yeshua a denial of our English Bible that was new testament that was written in Greek, not Hebrew. No one can show us from the Bible alone that Jesus was ever called YESHUA.

    Luke Chapter 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

    27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name [was] Mary.

    28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

    29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

    30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

    31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

    (Angel Gabriel gave JESUS his name from the Lord)

    so by what scriptural authority does anyone have to call him YESHUa?

    32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his

    father David:

    33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

    YESHU is a curse that means may his name be blotted out. This is commonly used by those who claim to be Noahides.

    They claim Noah was given a set of laws, yet they exist only in the minds of Rabbis. I can not find Noah being given any laws in my King James.

    Contrast the flight from Egypt at the Passover

    Exodus 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I (God) bare you on EAGLE eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

    With this Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great EAGLE eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

    I say the woman is the church, though most will disagree with me
  • Cynthia on Mark 16:15
    When was the true names of the Father the Word and the Holy Ghost taken out of the bible, The true name is Yahweh Elohim and Yahshua the Messiah.
  • Ruth on Revelation 22
    He who is without sin, cast the first stone.

    We are all imperfect and unworthy. It is through the blood that was shed for the atonement of our sins (which is the breaking of HIS commandments, statues and ordinances which WERE and ARE given to us as guidelines) that we may seek redemption. The New Testament (written by the apostles and St. Paul )DOES NOT CANCEL OUT that which is written in the TORAH or PROPHETS.

    In our present state of "unholiness" we can only pray that our LORD helps us and gives us the strength to avoid temptations. Probably impossible because there are so many "things" that surrounds and fulfils our earthly life, that is why there is repentance and forgiveness.

    Yoke not yourself with unbelievers and pray, pray, PRAY for we will be judged according to our works, but we are all HIS children and through HIS SON our MESSIAH, HE is merciful.

    May the LORD bless you and keep you safe.

  • Alex on 2 Samuel 13
    Comments by Alex about the lineage of Christ. Scriptures say that Christ was the Word made flesh and blood. JESUS was not of this world i.e not by any mans seed only by the living WORD MADE FLESH AND BLOOD the living WORD is Gods seed. He tells the Jews you are of this world i am not of this world, you are from beneath i am from Above, he was a celestrial being not a terestrial being. God almighty was his absolute Father thats how he had the power to sow that Good Seed the very seed of God in humanity.Jesus asked the pharisees what think ye of Christ whos seed is he? they replied Davids seed then Jesus said if David calls him Lord how can he be his son his lineage etc. then they durse not ask him any more Questions he was only the son of david SIMBOLICLY i.e this relationship between david and solomon was just a metaphor of Christ and his son the H.G. tHAT IS GONNA BUILD A GREATER TEMPLE THEN SOLOMON IN OUR HEARTS. As the kingdom is gonna be with in US SINNERS. IN OUR HEARTS ETC. GBU
  • Mishael - in Reply on 2 Samuel 13:20
    I googled the blood factors and you're right. He has his fathers blood and an alelle factor from Mary.

    His blood type can be the Fathers blood.

    We do know the Bible says that Jesus is WITHOUT sin right up to the Cross.

    I have a couple of those genealogy charts from googling. You have to save it to your photos to be able to enlarge it so you can read it. Just google "genealogy of Jesus".

  • Kim-C on Mark 16:15
    For the person who was looking for the answer to Abigail being called Nabal's wife, Chapter 25 explains that she was widowed because the Most High smote Nabal for not showing David hospitality and helping him.

    Because she was not a virgin bride and the genealogy would be confused by using a different title, she is called Nabal's widow, who later married David. Does that make sense?

    David's wives so far:

    Michal, Saul's daughter and first wife of David

    Abigail, Nabal's widow, and the second wife of David

    Ahinoam the Jezreelites, and the third wife of David

    One can assume the other two brides were virgins at the time of marriage.
