  • David Bergeron on Isaiah 5:20
    AMEN! God's Word is truth! I preached this past

    Sunday on Marxism & BLM. All Scripture was from the Bible and all notes from fact sheets and quotes. I knew I would receive some backlash (nasty) but 98% agreed. I am a proud American and a Christian and I will not be silent. I served 4 years in the Marines and 42 years in Law Enforcement, State Corrections, and Protective Services (I HAVE A RIGHT TO VOICE MY BELIEFS & OPINIONS). As Christian's we are required to serve God and speak truth (in love)! Thank you and God Bless!
  • Julie on 1 John 1
    1 John 1 establishes Jesus as God. Thou which was from the beginning... In the beginning was the word. Genesis 1.1 Christ is the word in the flesh who gives eternal life to all who believe in Him. Emmanuel, God with us. The disciples asked to see God, and Jesus replied "Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? "

    Why do so many believe He is not God when it is written in His word? How can one expect admittance to heaven that do not believe Jesus is God and call themselves a Christian?

    It is written in Matthew "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Confess Jesus as God. If His word is not in us the saving message of Christ has not taken root. Read your Bible and understand.

    The Son, the second person in the Trinity, has a l w a y s e x i s t e d with the Father. God sent the light of the world, Jesus. We are called to walk with God in the light (for only he is without sin and we will never be on par with Him) our purpose includes us to confess our sins and follow the commandments.

    Pray to Jesus to forgive both sins you know you did and those you're not sure you did-that would cover your dreams or half second wrong thoughts. Work toward being the love of God perfected by keeping His commandments.

    Understand now what His love for you is, love and forgive one another as you would want Him to do for you.
  • Ray D on Isaiah 40
    He is near our savior is at the door. We need to wake up and see the sign of the times. Everything passes but his word. He is coming and has prepared a place for us who believe in Christ. Lets surrender all to him and be lead by his Holy Spirit so we can shine his light in the darkness that surrounds us in this world. So others can come to him before it is to late. Praise you Jesus for you blessed and mighty word. May you be glorified in our lives as we live for you. Yes come Lord Jesus!!! The Bride awaits her Husband!!! Amen!!!

  • Frank Garcia - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    So many Christians are just lost for God's understanding sometimes there worried earthquakes, wars, corona 19 virus, famine, I can go on and on but the fact is Jesus warned us about such things my friend these are happening for a season they will past but they are signs of the latter days trust the Lord no matter what, God hasn't forgotten us he knows what is going on he will take care of his people the Bible tells us that .
  • Doris P James on Matthew 21
    We must be vigilant and full of faith. That is where the increase is.
  • Frank Garcia - in Reply on Psalms 62
    My friend, it is so easy to live in the natural that is, living in the world understanding things and choices without the following of the Holy spirit. Even mature Christians sometimes fall short . Always pray and ask God for wisdom and knowledge keep the faith, and study God's word bless you in God's name in Jesus.
  • Abi Osokoya on 1 Timothy 5
    Abi on 1 Timothy 5:18

    According to 2 Samuel 21:20-21, Jonathan son of Shimea David's brother slew the giant that had 12 fingers and 12 toes.
  • Mina on Numbers 1
    I think even from the very beginning, God knew that mankind (we,the people) will try to do what is evil in their heart. Preparing the Israelites for present danger, for example in this case,battle or war. It is important as chosen people of God to have a designated army for the protection of each and every tribe. After all, they were in bondage by Egyptians for a very long time. As we all know, there are other nations already roaming in the earth, and in order for them to get to the promise land, they will have to go through a lot of them. Remember, the Giants.

    Applying it to our present time, America, for example have different branch of the military. We have the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Coast Guards-It is also for the protection of our country. Not to go to war per say,but to protect us from the foreign or domestic threats.
  • Alex on 1 John 3:15
    Addressed to healing and deliverance who so ever you are God bless you that was a wonderful prayer. I amen your prayer from my heart.

    is the mark of the beast a real mark?

    Or is it something in your brain
  • Andy G van den Berg on Exodus 13
    On Exodus 13:17

    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).

    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), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Revelation 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    Luke 15:10. LIKEWISE, I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OF GOD OVER ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH.
  • Mk prosper - in Reply on 1 Timothy 5

  • Prayer for Healing and deliverance - in Reply on 1 John 3:15
    Spirit of Infirmity (the demon who inflicts health issues.

    (Bind up his work in this persons life)

    in the name of Jesus of Nazareth: I, a blood washed child of the Most High God:bind up your work in this mans body!

    I command you to release him and go into outer darkness Now!

    I bind every symptom and every co-demon on assignment to destroy him and keep him in bondage illegally. I bind:

    Weakness of our human nature, sickness Lingering disorders, oppression, weakness, cancer, arthritis, foul Lying Spirit, lame, bent, body, asthma, allergies, bleeding, addiction and craving. I command by the power and authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to leave this body and go into dry desert places.

    I Loose the Gift of Healing by the Power of the Holy Spirit of God to heal every disease and every affliction. I claim this life to be set aside to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. It is written: he will live and not die.

    He will live unto God from this day. Resist the Devil..and he must flee!



    It is written that whatever is bound on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever is loosed in heaven is loosed on earth, into this man.

    So be it now. I will sing your praise and give glory to Jesus for his sacrifice on the Cross. It is written...God so loved the world. Praise you Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. Amen.

  • Just chatting with us watchmen - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    I was searching things in the Blank Search Box one day. I don't know why, but I typed in 'China'. The search database knows these scriptures concern Chinese interests.

    They concern pandemics. There are 3. So I googled a list of all past pandemics with World death counts. It goes way back in history. Quite unsettling to read. CDC confirms it. Some pandemics were due to "swine flu". Corona virus evolves into more dangerous forms.

    You'll have to Google because I'm not sure if it was this year or 2019? President Trump put sanctions on China exporting pork that is infected with swine flu. They got caught trying to smuggle in a million pounds of infected pork in January.

    Corrupt business buys their cheap meat and sells it to Americans; then China pays high prices to the US to have non-infected meat imported there. I hope Trump stopped the entire process? Ignorance is bliss. I don't want to think about it. I hope Jesus will return soon.

    We take so many things for granted. That everything is safe that we put in our grand babies mouths. I've got everyone praying over food at my place. We've got to be wise and also be full of faith. Trust in God implicitly. Do the do's, and stop doing the don'ts.

    I just heard (no joking) the Holy Spirit singing "I walk The Line" by Johnny Cash.

    So I jet over to YouTube to have a singalong. There was a comment "is anyone else up at 2am listening to Johnny sing?" (during the co-vid crisis?). Many comments by Christians! It's so cool. John wrote that song to God!

    I can't wait to get to Heaven!!!

    Sinning is so hopeless when you compare it to eternity with all, and who is in heaven. Why would you want to miss out?

  • Chris - in Reply on Nehemiah 4
    "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." Matthew 5:11,12.

    "And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name." Acts 5:41.

    There are many today suffering or being persecuted around the world for their beliefs. Christians in those parts have learned how to live under such repressive systems & take it patiently; actually there's not much else that they can do. In the West, we barely get a sense of this now as generally Judeo-Christian principles are well established, though even these are constantly eroded, as we see it affecting education, discipline, removal of Christian values & teaching in favour of atheistic/humanistic based teachings. We easily & quickly complain that 'our faith is being attacked' when society has had to fall in line with recent governmental restrictions. I wonder how these same folk will handle some real 'attacks to their faith' as Satan goes into higher gear with his thrusts into our already compromised governmental mentality & systems. How will Christians behave & live in an increasingly anti-christian society?

    Would our response be as the Lord encouraged his disciples: to rejoice in their sufferings & persecutions - to rejoice & be exceeding glad for their heavenly reward would be great? Or will we complain with more gusto? Maybe to consider some of the other believers' suffering today might help us get a better perspective for today & preparation for tomorrow.

    Thank you Mark for that reminder from Nehemiah 4:14: "Be not afraid - remember the Lord".
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Timothy 6:10
    Frank, you are needed in the prayer request room. You have such an understanding of the Holy Spirit. He's so gentle. People need only to understand that God is not punishing us.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 10
    I find that when I have trouble repenting, it's often because I have pride issues in my life. Pride is spiritual blindness that causes us to think our standards are better than God's standards.

    The opposite of pride is humility, and one definition of it, which I really like, says, "Humility means agreeing with the truth." Perhaps that is why Paul says that repentance leads us to know the truth so that we can come to our senses (2 Timothy 2:25-26).

    When I repent and learn to agree with the truth of God's standards of righteousness and sin, I am growing in humility.

    God values humility; He shows favor to those who are humble, but He opposes and mocks those who are proud (Proverbs 3:34, James 4:6). So let's be quick to repent, so that we may grow in humility and receive and enjoy God's favor.

    If your conscience is sensitive to the Holy Spirits lead, He will let us know when we are off in a place we should not be.

    John chapter 16. He convicts us in our spirit. Then it's time to pray 1 John 1:9 in sorrow that "here I am again."!

    Barnes' Notes on the Bible

    Verily I say unto you ... - To encourage them, he assured them that, though his kingdom was now obscure and despised - though he was cast out and little known - yet the time was near when he would be regarded in a different manner, and his kingdom be established with great power.

    This cannot refer to the end of the world, and there is no need of referring it to the destruction of Jerusalem.

    Taste of death - That is, die. Before they die they shall see this.

    Son of man coming in his kingdom - Mark and Luke have explained this: Mark 9:1, "Until they have seen the kingdom of God come with power;" Luke 9:27, "Till they see the kingdom of God." The meaning evidently is, "till they shall see my kingdom," i. e., my church, now small, feeble, and despised, greatly enlarged, established, and spreading with great rapidity and extent. All this was accomplished. All these apostles, except Judas, lived to see the wonders of the day of Pentecost; some of them, John particularly, saw the Jewish nation scattered, the temple destroyed, the gospel established in Asia, Rome, Greece, and in a large part of the known world.

    This commentary better describes what this scripture realistically means. These things happened before all the disciples (except John) had been killed.

    Nice words God can't lie his promises are always true. What comfort to our lives.
  • Robert on Matthew 11:28
    In response to Jayden

    Reasons why OT matters

    History of God's chosen people

    Apostacy of the Church

    Not to be legalistic

    Forgiveness and generosity taught

    God wants to be involved in our lives

    Different types of prayer

    Teaches us how to worship

    Man's desire to be stiff necked and rebellious

    Prophecy some for the latter days; some of a better covenant

    Fortells the coming of Christ

    Why the Messiah was rejected

    Reasons for the New Testament

    In the Messiah's words

    The Comforter or Holy Ghost explained

    A better covenant (a direct link to God; Jesus as the intersessor, HG as the teacher and guide, the Word written upon mankinds heart)

    Grace

    Freely given, paid for, open to all who ask and seek

    Warnings

    Notes: the New Testament wasn't written or formulated until 60 years after Christ's death, resurrection and ascension but people claim the Old Testament is irrelevant (i.e. "Nailed to the Cross").

    The Bible was not canonized until 1611.

    Before that some prophecies were still being fulfilled (i.e. destruction of Tyre). Many prophecies still are future. (i.e. restoration of Israel and 2nd Coming).

    We are no longer in the dark ages. The Bible is more available to all than it has ever been. The internet connects the world like never before. False prophets and doctrines occur at a ridiculous pace (i.e. Another prophecy from both Testaments).

    Yet mankind still persists, our way is better than God's.

    Read it for yourself. Use the resources mentioned above. Don't trust anyone's interpretation but the HG's. Devotionals or doctrines that treat the Bible like a bag of trail mix seem wrong (i.e. Isn't that how this started? Hasn't it continued ever since?). From Genesis to Revelations.

    Grace, not legalism. The Lord wants a relationship with all and all to be reborn. His offer of salvation is open to all who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

    May your journey be fruitful, full of joy, and may you be counted worthy of the Creator's kingdom.
