  • Bonnie L Libell on 1 Timothy 2:2
    Where is it in the Bible about the elections of Judges? I thought it said something about the election of judges to lead quiet and peaceful lives: which is covered in 2 Timothy 2:2, but does not state judges outright.

    I thought I had read something about the appointment of judges, am I wrong?

    Do humans in comparrison to the immense intelligence of creation understand and able to discuss the occurrene of the source of heaven and earth?
  • Fred Scanlan on Luke 15
    Here is something to think about! Your heavenly Father, knows the very number of hairs on your head! His omniscience, His glory are comprehensible enough to say "My Lord and my God". These are Peters words when Jesus asked him, "who do men say that I am". Peter and John in their epistles, warn us of those that deny the Christ. That these false doctrines will even come out of the church, "the doctrine of anti-Christ". Even during their time , they confronted the same unbelief and false doctrines that we see today. The holy spirit moves Peter to use the word"divine power". John is moved and uses "In the light". The word is indeed of no private interpretation! Gods word is eternal and everlasting. If any teach any other word let him be accursed! "Abide in me, and I in you". "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."

    COMMENTARY

    "Satan is styled the "accuser of the brethren" (Revelation 12:10. Comp." "Job 1:6; Zechariah 3:1), as seeking to uphold his influence among" "men by bringing false charges against Christians,

    with the view" of weakening their influence and injuring the cause with which they are identified.

    He was regarded by the Jews as the accuser "of men before God, laying to their charge the violations of the" "law of which they were guilty, and demanding their punishment."

    "The same Greek word, rendered "accuser," is found in John 8:10" "(but omitted in the Revised Version); Acts 23:30, 35; 24:8;" "25:16, 18,

    in all of which places it is used of one who brings a" charge against another."

    Mishael: I'm not saying we should tickle ears or stroke egos.

    We should at least spend an equal amount of time Edifying the Brethern. Encouraging, lifting up wilting spirits, undergirding;

    Standing in the gap and in the hedges, sitting in the watchtowers, even,

    Interceding for the Saints, as Jesus is doing.

    We talk the talk, but can we walk the walk of Jesus Christ? All of this knowledge and do we spend time in the Prayer Request room? Praying for the little people? What would Jesus do?

    I don't say this in anger or in accusation. I'm just weary of hoping for change.

    Have a great Saturday. God bless.

    Theres no evolution of man or any animal. God made us as we are. Only thing that comes close is the mule a cross between a horse and a donkey. Its still in the horse family. If evolution was true there would be thousand of offspring. There is none.

  • The Great Falling Away Prophesy on Luke 12:10
    The sad truth is that the seed of the gospel falls on different kinds of ground: rocky, shallow, sunlight dries up new growth.

    People are going to FALL AWAY. It is a prophesy. We ought to pray for those people: ask God to send angels to pull them out of the ditch and drag them back to Church.

    Our society does nothing to undergird belief in anything other than money, self indulgence and self promotion. They will FALL AWAY.

    1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

    Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost...

    2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

    Hebrews 3:12-19 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

    Revelation 2:4-5 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

    2 Peter 2:20-22 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

    Matthew 24:10-13 - And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.....

    Revelation 3:11 - Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

    James 1:12 - Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

    Pray for them! Mishael

    On 'BORN OF GOD' - 'BORN AGAIN

    Most people on this website claim to be so-called Christians, but in truth are they followers of Jesus Christ or do they follow 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)?. Most of them also claim to be so-called 'Born Again', which means 'Born of God', but are they, or is it a form of self-transformation (2 Corinthians 11:13-15), while in truth they are wearing the wrong garment (Psalms 6:8; Matthew 7:20-23; 9:16; 22:2-14; Mark 2:21; Luke 5:36)?

    For answers to the above questions we invite you to peruse the earlier Comment below.

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

    In His Service.

  • Andy G van den Berg on Matthew 18:20
    On Matthew 18:3

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    God is the judge over His Church and teaches us that you must be 'Born Again'. No believer and follower of the true Christ has ever made a claim that they are 'Born Again'. That is judging oneself and falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; Revelation 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True 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).

    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 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 (John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know 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 is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it.

    Every day is the short answer, But I think you are talking about the gathering together to worship. Jews still use Saturday. Christians use the Lords day Sunday.

    That was a wonderful strong testimony you shared, D. Robbins. My heart rejoiced to read it & for your single-mindedness to stay true & faithful to the Lord. And His Love for you is your blessed assurance & joy also - stay close to Him & keep short accounts with Him. Every blessing.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Frankye, Stanjett is correct. The Wilderness of Sin is one of six wildernesses through which the Israelites travelled on their way to Canaan after leaving the bondage in Egypt/Pharaoh. The wildernesses include Shur, Etham, Sin, Sinai, Paran, and Zin. The Wilderness of Sin is sometimes confused with the Wilderness of Zin, a region on the northwestern side of the Sinai Peninsula. The Israelites traversed the Wilderness of Sin at the beginning of the Exodus, arriving at the Wilderness of Sin "on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had come out of Egypt" (Exodus 16:1).

  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 12:10
    Hi Joshua. Just to briefly chime in here to lend full agreement & support to what you have declared as this is how I understand the believers' stand before God. The Lord will not draw a (predestined) seeking soul, in his conviction of sin upon hearing the Gospel, his cry out for forgiveness & then receiving confirmation of that redemption with joy, peace & the indwelling of His Spirit, if he then at some future date, decides to reject the Lord & turn back to his old ways. God makes no mistakes in His Call & Confirmation.

    If a 'Christian' turns back, it can never be our determination of what sort of experience & spiritual work has been done in that life. God only knows every heart & our 'judgement' can only be based on what our eyes perceive: & that's not a good basis at all. That is why at one's water baptism, one can only be baptized based on the testimony of one's faith, not on the knowledge of the person's heart, mind or his present/future walk with the Lord. If a believer sins or even backslides, the matter is between him & God: for the Spirit's Work in Him to draw him back to spiritual health. We might see a 'Christian' lost into the world, but as said earlier, our perception is not with God's Knowledge; that same 'Christian' may one day return to full faith in a special abundant way.

    And to add one more thing: "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved." (Matthew 10:22, 24:13). This is the ultimate test isn't it, as has been proven over the centuries when godly folk, who may not readily agree with our understanding of the doctrines & lessons we discuss here, but who for their love for God through Christ & with a solid unshakeable faith, have gone to their deaths at the stake or the sword. Does it take such an event to convince us of their salvation? Maybe so. Is it even important or right that we do so, as each soul stands or falls depending on what has or has not transpired between him and God?

    Do you know what the Passover is? Where did it come from. It happened 1000s of years before Jesus was born. The Passover was not Jesus. How did you get that?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Zechariah 5
    read this over till you get it.

    Judges Chapter 16 28 And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.

    29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.

    30 And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with [all his] might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that [were] therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than [they] which he slew in his life.
  • JESUS SON OF MAN LORD OF ALL - in Reply on Matthew 26
    If you faithfully read God's Word, pause and think upon what you've read; and then ask the Holy Spirit to teach the meaning to you: He will respond to your prayer.

    Be prepared to write down what He says. You're going to want to search the scriptures again.

    This kind of interaction every day builds your faith. It is the Sword of the Spirit.

    When Ezekiel was prophesying to the bones, and they began to rattle: he was scared. He did what God said and the bones stood up. A great and mighty army.

    Here's this little prophet of God seeing this awesome sight! He was changed by obedience; trust in Almighty God.

    Sometimes I ask myself if my faith is a bone on the ground, or is it standing up in full armor, ready to do what God is saying to do.

    And, I am prone to ask God things like: "what am I doing today?" How can I be of service?" Then we wait on His Word to us.

    Some of us know what to be doing. We've seen scriptures that show us what to be doing. Our lives are about obedience to the known will of God, in this Book we carry around.

    It's not for arguing. It's for launching cruise missiles of light and prayer against the kingdom of darkness that is enveloping this planet.

    Man cannot save this earth. It's hemorrhaging on what's been done to it, in darkness. Satan desires to hurt everything that God has made, including the people on earth. And he knows his time is short: he can read scripture too. He just thinks he can win anyway.

    Praise to our Savior who will fight the final battle and defeat Satan for eternity.

    Have confidence and deep admiration in our Savior. The Holy Spirit desires to reveal more of Jesus to us. We have to study. We have to sit quietly in His presence and pray and wait for the Rhema of Gods Word.

    Mishael

    Jesus is real. I saw Him. Believe in Him.

    Have no doubts. Have confidence & Faith.

    Male or female: Do what is in your heart.

    Sin here is not sin as we know sin(doing wrong.) This is a place named Sin. Somewhere in the wilderness. A small town maybe or a water hole.

    The holy spirit can perform many missions in the preaching and teaching of Christs kingdom. When we give our self solely to him (the holy spirit), He will say and do what we could never imagine! It is impossible to serve in His kingdom without serving all three! The Father, The Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank you for response!
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    The law and gospel are what the church are not teaching. We cannot fulfill the law nor even begin to comprehend what it means to keep it . In your reply, you focus mostly on the law and sin that separates us from God the Father. No where did you mention Jesus Christ, or the love He has for all mankind, even those that believe on His name. I hope that even tho, you don't mention his name, this is what you want us to assume.Right? This same preaching is what is prevalent in the church today! Law with no gospel. The law is "a schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ". "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal". As a matter of fact, correct me if I'm wrong,every bible verse you quoted does not mention the Lord Jesus Christ. The world wants nothing more than to take Christ out of the word of God. Even if it means using His own words to do it. This you have accomplished, while making me believe that I am justified before God the Father, without the deeds of our Lord Jesus Christ. Which is easier to say, thy sins be forgiven thee, or take up thy bed and walk?
