  • Jesse - in Reply on Acts 22
    Tracy,

    Just one other thing I would like to share with you that I find fascinating is how the shepherds in Jerusalem would keep their sheep in a sheepfold at night to keep them safe from predators. There was only one sheepfold for all these sheep belonging to multiple shepherds, and only one door to this sheepfold. They put a guard at this door overnight to guard the sheep.

    Every morning, the shepherds would come to get their sheep. The guard would not open the door unless he recognized the shepherd. Each shepherd, one by one, would call out to his sheep. And keep in mind that there are probably hundreds of sheep in this sheepfold. But only the ones who belonged to that particular shepherd would come out the door. The other sheep would not come out if they didn't recognize the voice of the one calling them.

    I find it totally fascinating how this parallels with what Jesus says about His sheep!
  • Jesse - in Reply on Acts 22
    A person who calls upon the Lord and surrenders their life to Christ, has their sins forgiven, past, present, and future. Paul gave instruction concerning apostasy in 1 Timothy 4:1-5. Paul expressed concern in Acts Chap. 20, for the church, that after he died, grievous wolves (false teachers) would enter in amongst the believers, not sparing the flock. He said men would arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

    Paul warns about apostasy, that false teachers would come into the church and deceive many, causing them to depart from the faith. So apostasy means to depart.

    In 2 Thess. 2:3, Paul says let no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come, (Tribulation period), except there come a falling away first. The term falling away is the word apostasy. In John 10:4-5, Jesus says His sheep know His voice, and they follow Him, and will not follow the voice of a stranger (False teacher/false profit). Therefore, a true believer cannot commit apostasy
  • Paul - in Reply on Psalms 83
    The translations that preceded the KJV of 1611 do not contain that part.
  • Neil MacEwan to the overseers of this siteyou may not want to publish this respo on Matthew 24
    Chris...re Matthew 24

    Personal experience...I was in a Christian denomination, whose leaders went VERY liberal, so much so it caused our pastor and others to question their leadership. As a result, over 20 congregations in our country decided to break away from that leadership.Result..?Their liberal leadership sued my congregation,took us to court, and as a result we lost everything...our church building( we were forbidden to use our church building for services, we lost finances ie large donations that were given in trust from deceased members, we were without a place to worship for several years.

    We met in a funeral home chapel for some time, TIL we shared another denominations building where we meet now.)

    Does that liberal leadership claim Jesus as Messiah?yes one of their pastors claimed there was myth in the Bible, and that congregants should not be reading their bibles!Decide..were they deceiving their congregations? Were they leading them astray? We were not RC

    can a person be a believer and not a disciple

    can a person be a disciple and not a believer
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    Greetings Louis - Jesus said that almost 2,000 years ago about where 2 or 3 are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Most Bible scholars say Jesus died around 32-33 AD.
  • Vern - in Reply on Daniel 10
    It depends. Where does that originate from? In Genesis the first book of the Bible it reads: 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth. 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 15:26 But when the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeded from the Father, he shall testify of me. Is this the Trinity you are referring to? The only (trinity) I can find in Gods written word.
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    a goldy Christian wife submits to her husband. She is supposed to be meek and quite, not a loud mouth, pushy woman, that is an embarassm,ent to her husband (especially in front of other people. A godly wife is not a thorn in his side. Proverbs 21:19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious (argumenative) and an angry woman.
  • Robert J DeHaan on Isaiah 8:10
    Seek Jesus Christ and in doing so the Lord offers the PARDON FROM OUR SINS! This is the life saving way of Almighty Divine Creator. The gifts of mercy and grace are the greatest in all the world. The Father's love for us is so incredibly beautiful. O for the day when Corruption but's on Incorruption and Mortality will but on Inmortality. In the twinkling of an eye sin will never be thought of again and we will be holy as He is Holy. The Light of the Father's Glory is All in All that matters. The Lamb of God will be the object of our Worship into Eternity. Nothing else should matter in this earthbound life knowing that our future is the Great hope of the fallen sinner, in need of a Savior.
  • Peter - in Reply on Acts 22
    It was a great discussion, very appropriate, and you did a great job. Thank you and as i usually say; also great to discuss it with parents and if they agree, with the leader or minister or priest; and it is always good to learn things.

    Have a great day.

  • Peter - in Reply on Acts 22
    I don't accept that there are evolutionary processes going on. I do accept that animals will go anywhere looking for food and or better environmental conditions or die if they can not adapt; and adaptations do allow for changes in the habits and appearance of the animal but we classify that into different species. For example, we had no sewer rats before we had sewers; however; the rats found a new home there; and adapted (or evolved to become sewer rats); and so I guess you are right within species. The same thing also happens to other species; however, I don't think it happens between animals as all that look the same are in the same category; and apart from that, I think that they are just lined up from the smallest to the biggest and thus said to go from being small things to big things; but that is not evolution

  • Peter - in Reply on Acts 22
    Your 15 and you are wondering what did we descend from. Well; Dalanie, I go with the Bible. So I would say Adam and Eve. The so called evidence on our ancestors being monkeys and apes is figments of their imagination where they take things from the remains of skull bones in geological layers of the earth and say that it indicates that our brains have changed to be like they are today and since the ape brain is something like ours; they think that we came from apes; but apes do not have a mind; and they can't account for that.

    The Bible however does account for that. Some people try to prove it and others take it by faith; and I recommend that people take it by faith because try to prove it can lead to misunderstanding and people losing God, especially to concepts and ideas of evolution. Incidentally; at your age; you should also discuss it with your parents and keep them informed. As 4 schools teaching such things; they should also teach the flaws, to allow for proper thinking.

  • Travis - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Rod,

    Tithing was more strict under Jewish ceremonial law but it started before the law with Abram and Melchizedek. Tithing is very much for today, Chris is right. However, its dependent on our trust in God. Besides the promise of Malachi 3:10, we read in gospels how even though Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for leaving out judgment and mercy, he commended them for the tithe. But that is a secondary issue and not to take precedent above the former. Besides in Hebrews 7:8 the Bible says "And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth"

    In other words Jesus still receives our tithes in Heaven as a pattern of how it worked under the law. Giving of our tithe or our firstfruits of our increase shows God our faith in Him that he will provide for us, plus giving of our tithes also shows that we are faithful in the "least of things", bible says money is the least of things and that if we can trust Him in that arena he can entrust us more
  • Vicki Kalal - in Reply on Matthew 24:36
    On Matthew 24:36 Chris the Scripture you refer to Matthew 24:36, I thought that was when Jesus comes at the end of the Tribulation & every eye would see him. I was referring to when the rapture of the Church occurs. I guess I phrased my question wrong. The Jews were looking for the Kingdom of God, weren't they, as they didn't know anything about the rapture or tribulation?
  • Deason K Baybayan III - in Reply on Romans 6
    We are saved by grace through faith, and justified by faith. Your works are dead if your working for eternal salvation. The moment you believed the gospel of Jesus Christ is the moment you inherited everlasting life. You have been made a new creation, not of your will but of the will and power of the Spirit of God. If there is anything you must repent of, it is your unbelief of the promise of everlasting life through the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Deason K Baybayan III - in Reply on Romans 6
    A Christian is someone who is born again by the power of the Holy Ghost. To be born again you must believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, that He died for your sins, He was buried, and He rose on the third day. By believing the gospel God gives you everlasting life. If you have everlasting life how can you die? Your flesh will die because of sin but your soul and spirit are saved because of the righteousness of faith in Christ. Now there are a lot of people who call themselves "christians" but are not born again. Do you know for sure that if you were to die today, you will go to heaven?
  • David on Psalms 86
    Thank lord I do believe you saved my life today. I will be stronger I will love and find my new way.
  • Nick Kornev on Jonah 4
    Hi, I really like your bible.
  • Louis DEROSE on Matthew 18:20
    When did Jesus say "For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them", i.e. how many years ago.
  • Patty Tozi on Psalms 83:18
    Every morning l sit some where alone getting strength from my Heavenly Father. I have been through my life many warfares because the enemy knew at the end of my Distany l would be so close to our God, that l could move heavy mountains from others lifes. I flow in and out of the controlled system of lies- knowing my Strength of my past fights l have had would lead me in the Light to fight for others. I know my God. I know His Son. Been up in the Heavens before. Saw Jesus fight for me with His Father so l could return to the world to help others. My whole life l wrote what l could see before it happened. Leading me to walk now only with the Holy Spirit- not the world at all. I want everyone to know we have to choose now who we will serve. The world of the mind and flesh. Or the Spirt of our Mighty God and His Son. Choose this day whom you will serve. For the time will go faster and faster as the evilness takes hold. And out of the Clouds Jesus will be. A Mighty Warrrior for you and me!!!
  • Anthony - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Thank you so much. God's Word tells us to believe.
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    No parts are optional. You follow them all. Culture and society have trampled the Word of God. Women should STILL worship with their heads covered. The reason why they don't ??? Just like Israel did. And look what happened to Israel. God turned His back on them for millenium now. There are left to doing what is right in their own eyes, Just as AmeriKans are. And just as God did with Israel, for turning AWAY from the Lord their God, He is fixing to do the exact same with America and England. Just as a woman shall keep her silence in church 1 Cor 14:34, she should also worship with her head covered. 1 Cor 11:5 tells why.But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. If a woman worships with her head uncovered, she DISHONORETH her head (husband) and is an embrassment to him. The silence/head covering is designed by God to show a woman humility. Keeps her humble.
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    Women are NOT equal. They never were from the beginning.God made woman from a PART of man. Peter calls them the weaker vessel. if you aren't the same strength, then you are unequal. She was made to be a "help meet" , a wife for man; not a ruler, not a soverign, not a CEO, not a soldier, not a cop, but a keeper of the house. Weak men have given up their God given lordship due to feminism, what a shame. God used a woman judge (Deborah) and a housewife (Jael) ONE time in the Bible, in the same event no less, for the specific reason of being an embarrassment to a male king. That's all. Never another woman ruler. God told MEN to go to war, never did he tell WOMEN to go to war. The young girl that "kept the door of the tabernacle" was a one time job, her dad had to go and do a job inside the temple and she was the first person he saw to hold the door. Why is it that these days, women STRIVE to be better than men. What do they have to prove? That they are equal? They break God's law/order
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    preaching is preaching, doesn't matter where it is. one on one , sharing their testimony and inviting them to Christ is what women should do, niot teach. You either have to take the Word of God as it is written, or just write your own Bible.

    18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

    19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
