  • Pray Without Ceasing - in Reply on Jeremiah 29

    1 Thessalonians 5:17

    Pray without ceasing.

    1 Thessalonians 5:25

    Brethren, pray for us.

    (Pray for our ministers that are teaching Gods Word, every day.)

    Matthew 14:23

    And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart TO PRAY: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

    Matthew 24:20

    But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

    Mark 13:33

    Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

    Luke 6:28

    Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

    Luke 18:1

    And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

    >The reason it says pray that your flight be not on the sabbath, is because the Jews can't go over a certain distance. They wouldn't be able to flee to the mountains as another scripture tells us.

    >If we are not living a prayerful lifestyle..we are just fooling ourselves on how spiritual we think ourselves to be. That is Not an accusation.

    If you think that was unkind of me to say that, then go listen to some Charles Stanley sermons on a life of prayer, on YouTube. He teaches on tv every Sunday too.

  • The Blood of Jesus - in Reply on Revelation 19:13
    Revelation 19:13, clearly names Jesus as the Word of God.

    The blood of Christ one of the most important doctrinal teachings found in the Word of God. It is through the shedding of Christ's blood that WE can:

    Learn of God's and Christ's great love for us

    Be declared innocent from our many heinous sins

    Be delivered from the eternal wrath of Almighty God

    Be brought into communion with a Holy God.

    Be saved from eternal death and granted eternal life.

    Romans 5:8-10 - "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    Much more then, being now justified by his BLOOD, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

    For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

    No wonder His shed blood holds a core position of importance in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, it is the only hope for a person's salvation, receipt of other spiritual blessings and eternal security with Him.

    Sadly, many today will minimize the importance of the death and shed blood of Christ. It has been done throughout NT times and will continue to be done until Christ comes again. Anytime that we minimize what Christ has done for us (whether by word or action) after we have mentally received the truth about its importance, it is a sign of a lost condition and increased responsibility at the final judgment.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ephesians 4:11
    Not in my memory. He met Jesus on the Damascus Road. He was blinded by the experience for 3 days. His ears were ok.

    He heard Jesus's Voice perfectly.

    He turned from walking dead person to alive in Jesus Christ, in a heartbeat. He wrote much of the New Testament (not the Gospels).
  • Gabriel Pereda on Psalms 126
    I remember i read Psalms 126 when i was younger and i knew Jesus was with me. I didnt read it for a while and me and my mom asked ourselves, is it biblical to dream? That day after so long i remembered the words " we were like them that dream". Jesus comforted me again with Psalms 126 after so many years. He is healing and restoring me. Never give up because Jesus will turn your captivity.
  • Andy G van den Berg on Revelation 20:3

    In order to put the California wildfires into a 'spiritual' context we invite you to visit the 'Current Events' page of our website. There are several entries that will explain the cause of God's wrath and why people's prayers are all in vain (Matthew 15:9). The 'Current Events' page is a collection of thoughts and discussions on today's 'Current Events' and how our website helps to explain and examine them and put them into a 'spiritual' context.

    As a direct result of religious and made-made doctrines and commandments (Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:7; Colossians 2:22), history has proven that mankind does not follow the first three commandments (Exodus 20:3-7), bur rather follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9). History has also proven that this whole world has been deceived as confirmed by the Word of God inRevelation 12:9, and history has also proven that 'Religion' is a deception that Satan is using to transform himself into an angel of light and an apostle of Christ (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    You can learn more about our Ministry in Christ by Googling our 'Names' or the article "False Apostles and False Christs' or 'A World Deceived'. There is also a 'Contact' page for further communication. We invite you to review the 'Letter of Introduction' posted on the 'Introduction' page of the website. It highlights some of our work. Please note that our website was visited last year by people from over 160 countries. There are a total of 193 countries throughout the world plus the Vatican and Palestine that are listed as observer states.

    It should be noted that in over 36 years of service we have never collected/received, solicited or requested donations. The gift of 'Life' was freely given and freely do we give to all those that believe (2 Kings 5:16; Matthew 6:26; 10:8).

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

    In His Service.

  • Brandi A Reese on Proverbs 3:8
    Time is an amending factor in all that got graces us with. Patience is a practice virtue of discipline and structural resgin. Education with growth development gives opportunity to many statues of governed office to expand with greater opportunity to offer offenders positive release options.
  • Keynayoka B Benton - in Reply on James 1:5
    There is no where in the bible that speaks of a man skin color. People assume because the Israelites was in slaved in Egypt which is in Africa that they were black. The Israelites were a multitude of different people and nationality just as Christians are today. The Israelites was from the land of Israel and Judah which they fled to Egypt because of the famine that God had placed on them because of their disobedience and their failure to repent. They fled to Egypt because they know that Joseph was there and that he had power and he would welcome them there. But when Joseph died the Israelites started living the lifestyle of the Egyptians and neglecting God again, so God allowed them to be put into Slavery as a punishment just like he sent the famine back in Israel. Even after the Israelites was freed from slavery they was suppose to only send 40 days in the wilderness but because they lack of faith and complaining it turned into 40 years. They even tried to go back to Egypt and also they started building golden images to wordship after all God had done for them. Its plenty of more situation in the bible where the Hebrews, the Israelites, the Jews had to suffer punishment from God because of their unwillingness to trust and follow God. Sad to say we as Modern Day Christians are following the same path that they went through.

    Israelites were a group of people that God chose and he gave them the responsibility to spread the message about Jesus Christ coming to die and to redeem them from sin. Today as Christians its our responsibility to share to the world about the love Jesus and his second coming so that everyone can be saved and have eternal life.

    Please Note: Israelites Slavery and Black Slavery is not the same type of slavery. Israelites was in a Spiritual Slavery because of the disobedience to God and not doing his will. Black Slavery was man desire to control another race of people for financial gain.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Psalms 37:13
    Rebecca, II Samuel 23:1 Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raise up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, (vs 2) The spirit of the Lord spake by me, and his word was in my tongue. Revelation 19:10 .....worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. II Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not at any time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

  • Mishael on Revelation 20:3
    National news media in the USA will most likely not report this story. You may have to read national Israeli news, Jerusalem Post.
  • In the News Today on Revelation 20:3
    THIS WAS IN THE NEWS this morning!

    This is a threat, that if it comes to pass (it really happens), God is going to prevent all the bombs they launch at Israel, from hitting the ground.

    It would be a miracle of the same magnitude as opening the Red Sea so the Israelites could flee Pharaoh, in the Old Testament.

    If you want to verify the story is true, go to the ACLJ website and read it. Sign the petitions against it.

    I am so grieved that this country would now elect a president that most likely, will not act Against this threat.

    It's also a sign of the times that we are living in; approaching. Let Gods Word be true, and everyone who denies it, a liar.

    Prophesies do not lie. If it's written, it will happen, as written. I'll be back later when I locate that prophesy in the prophetic books. I'll post it. Glory to God in the Highest!! We're going to our new home soon.

    "In a huge development, the U.S. has brokered a major peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    Showing their true colors, Palestinian leaders are calling this PEACE deal a "stab in the back." The Palestinian terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad were quick to condemn peace and try to stir up further animosity.

    This is a major move for the security of our ally Israel.

    Yet, the anti-Israel U.N. and terrorist agitators in the Middle East - like Iran - want to destroy Israel. The president of the Palestinian Authority even threatened that "MILLIONS OF FIGHTERS" would attack Jerusalem and Israeli settlements "shall all be destroyed." Air attacks.

    We were there when the U.S. embassy was moved to the eternal capital of Israel - Jerusalem. We're aggressively working to defend Israel's interests.

    Just days ago, we sent a new legal letter to the U.N. Security Council to defend Israel's interests. And we're in federal court in our 3 major Israel-related cases, where "Palestinian" agitators are threatening Israel's interests with bogus lawsuits.

    Somebody should have told Jesus all this before he met with the disciples in John chapter 20. ()
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Ephesians 4:11
    Paul first met the resurrected Lord Jesus in Acts chapter 9. At that time, Paul was known as Saul. He was on his way to Damascus to persecute the believers when a blinding light shone from heaven and the Lord spoke unto him.

    1st Corinthians 15 also gives Paul's recounting of Jesus' several appearances to witnesses after his resurrection.

  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Every day should be a day of praying. The day is not the important matter. The important thing is that we have an everlasting relationship with God through Jesus Christ who shed his blood on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead for our justification.

    Days for worship with others is at our own choosing, whenever we can meet with fellow believers.
  • Mina on Numbers 17
    Our righteousness is like a filthy rugs compared to the righteousness of God. If it's not for God's mercy, we all deserve to be punished and suffer in the lake of Fire. We fail God everyday, and base on the present condition of the world we are living in, all the terrible things happening all around us including abortion, killings of the innocent, every sin unimaginable,whether directly and indirectly, we are affected by it. What are we doing about it? Mostly, we condemn each other, we blame each other, compare ourselves to each other, boastful. etc.

    We all need to repent and ask God's forgiveness for the sins of this world. It is ours to bear the burdens of this world. We ought to love one another and spread the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. So often we forget. Woe to all of us! May God forgive us all in our shortcomings- Amen.

  • Revelation 19:13

    Whose blood is sprinkled on the vesture; Is it the blood of the defeated enemy, or Christ's blood as atonement for our sins? I have Zondervan KJV Study Bible. The footnotes indicated that it could have been either. That note only led to confusion on my part.

    Thanks, Roy
  • Andy G van den Berg on Revelation 20:3

    Please consider the following:

    God unites His people (the believers) by His Spirit (John 4:24; Ephesians 4:3-6,13).

    Luke 9:56. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.

    Matthew 11:6. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (Isaiah 8:14; Matthew 13:57; 24:10; 26:31; Romans 9:32; 1 Cor. 1:23; 2:14; Galatians 5:11; 1 Peter 2:8).

    John 3:19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    Luke 11:22. But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

    1 John 4:4-6. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he than is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

    Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice ( John 8:47; 18:37).

    You search the scriptures for in them ye think that ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life (John 5:39,40).

    He that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things, yet he himself is judged by no man (1 Corinthians 2:15).

    There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true (Proverbs 1:7; 10:8,21; 12:15; 13:20; 14:9; 16:22; 18:2; 20:3; 29:11; Luke 18:10-14; Cor. 1:20; 2:14; 15:36).

    We regret that you are not able to understand any of the above (1 Corinthians 2:14; 2 Cor. 7:10). Notwithstanding: Seek and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

    Don't let your self-righteousness stand in the way of your salvation (Romans 10:2-4).

    In His Service.

  • Andy G van den Berg - in Reply on Psalms 91:7

    May we suggest you read 1 Cor. 2:14,15 and than study what it means to repent and when you change from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18) you will learn that the 'California Wildfires' are indeed God's wrath. It is the fruit of the unbelief of the people, as they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ, as you do yourself (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting, repentings) is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).
  • LaShae Riggs on Proverbs 22:24
    Some men not all wants to be Holy and deceive you too believe his everyword but doesn't want too do God's will it's not right and it doesn't work that way
  • Andy G van den Berg on Ephesians 5:26
    On Ephesians 5:6

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Revelation 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and overcome this world (1 John 5:4).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:1
  • Mild Bill on Psalms 9
    The gates of death, is a threshold we all live near. By God's mercy and grace we do not enter eternity there. But rather, through the Lord Jesus(the door) having paid for our sins we are gifted with eternal life. The body of flesh dies, as also the passing away of heaven and earth. Be certain God is your savior, and not you yourself. For all our self righteousness are as filthy rags before the work of Christ on the cross. The gates of the daughter of Zion is a place apart from the corrupt world, a pre-experience of heavenly delight, such as here before God's word, a blessing unlike anything the corrupt world has to offer, where sinful men can become sons of God, and thereby pleasing to him. All day, every day, God is worthy of praise.
