    Mark16/17/Acts 2.4 speak of all speaking in tongues
  • Ken Beltran - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Totally agree with you.

    Many get it wrong when they don't put the full weight of God's Word (promise) concerning their guaranteed Salvation once they are Born Again.

    May the Lord bless you abundantly in standing firm to His Truth.

  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    Very true, God's Word is unchanging - and "the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good". By it man ought to live & by it man will be judged.

    But "thanks be to God for His unspeakable Gift" that those who are in Christ "are now delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter" (Romans 7:6). But for those under the Law (the unsaved Jews) & others who believe that the Law is still obligatory for them, then "if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain" (Galatians 2:21).

  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Abigail, I know this illness is taking a toll on your emotions. Not your faith in God. It is time to feed your faith.

    If he will allow you, lay hands on your son by holding his hand; and pray these scriptures (below) aloud. We have 3 gates on our bodies: the Eye Gate (reading the words)

    the Ear Gate that hears the scriptures spoken; and the Mouth Gate, speaking the Words of Life.

    All of these things feed our spirits and our faith grows on what God says, rather than the doctors. Copy the scripture names down.

    Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

    Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.

    Jeremiah 33:6 Behold, I will bring him health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.

    1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

    Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

    James 5:15 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.

    James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

    3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.

    James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

    Speak faith when doubt raises its head.

    Pray: " Come Holy Spirit. Help Me."

    Listen to praise music.

    At least if you are going to criticize me do it in a contextual way instead of taking my words out of context , yes you may need a little more education to understand it as well .
  • Rob - in Reply on Romans 8:16
    The Lord had his critics too so I can take it as well ! I'm not trying to impress anyone ! But keep to the truth if that offends the fakes too bad !
  • Wayne - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    Isaiah 40:8 God says, "The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand for ever." time is irrelevant .
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Dear Lord, you know this man looks to you for his salvation, comfort and love. I pray he finds your love everywhere in your Word. Comfort his heart that Your Eye is on the sparrow. May You supply all his needs according to Your riches in Glory. Keep him in the palm of Your Hand; where you have carved his name.

    I ask in the name of Jesus You would grant him an angel to be sent to watch over him and bring Your peace into his home; as you did for me.

    Bless the Name of Jesus. Thank you for watching and praying for David.
  • There was an old man and his wife at the car wash. After going through the wash a young man came to the car with his towels to wipe it off. As he finished, the old man angrily barked at the young worker "you missed a whole bunch of spots on the windshield!" The young man apologized, grabbed his towels and began to wipe the windshield again. As he finished the old man angrily said "what are you Blind? There are still spots all over my windshield." The young man again apologized and this time grabbed a fresh towel and proceeded to scrub the windshield. As he finished, the old man became irate but before he could bark at the young man his wife stopped him. She asked "Alfred, let me see your eye glasses. When is the last time you cleaned them?" As she investigated his glasses she noticed many spots all over the lenses.

    Ask yourself; what is the moral to the story and how can I apply it to my own life and walk in Christ.

    Let's get our lenses clean and help others to see better as well.
  • Rebecca Watkins on 2 Thessalonians 3:10
    Right Thank You God Has Me I Love You Sweet Jesus
  • Lee on Revelation 22
    A few years ago I was in a horrible spot in my life. Long story short I had an abortion and I'm under serious conviction ov it. I want to know if I'm going to hell ? My life has gone down hill every since. I truly regret the decision
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    Does the Bible say it was okay for Lot and family to act as they did?

    I can only see that misery, degradation and death for nations were brought about by their misguided deeds.

    Comparing ourselves with them to excuse our own sin could never assuage our personal guilt. Only faith in the crucified and risen Lord Jesus Christ can mollify that shame.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    Wayne, I don't believe it was okay for Lot to offer his daughters in exchange for protection of his visitors. I feel that, if anything, he should have offered himself, which would have been the proper thing to do given the circumstances.

    And I agree again, that incest is not acceptable with God. To note though, the official Law & Standards were not given to Israel until much later through Moses at Mt. Horeb. We are not told how God dealt with the daughters, indeed with Lot himself, except that the offspring from that act, Moab & Ammon, were rejected by God & were given over to idolatry choosing to reject the True God. As too with Edom, the offspring of Esau. All three families had bad relations with Israel, even from the beginning as they went to war with Israel over Israel's march through their territories.

    "Have I ever worked on the Sabbath?" I'm unsure about the purpose of this question at this occasion, but I'm never one to turn down an answer. I'm not a Jew so I don't observe the Sabbath - I do however observe the Lord's Day as a special day to meet with other believers around God's Word & in corporate praise of Him. Yet, everyday is a 'day of rest' for me as I experience that ongoing rest & satisfaction in my spirit in knowing that I'm loved by God, kept secure in it & have a certain hope for our uncertain future. Hebrews 4:1-11.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Mark 13:18
    If you glance back at verse 14 of Mark 13, you will read:

    "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:"

    This would occasion the prayer regarding their flight in verse 18.

    This verse in turn refers back to Daniel's vision in Daniel chapters 10-12 which culminates with the abomination that maketh desolate in Daniel 12:11. Those hearing Jesus would likely remember from their history a desecration of the temple by a vile oppressor, Antiochus Epiphanes.

    Before Judah and Israel are fully restored, they will endure their worst ever persecution at the hand of Satan. (Revelation 12)

    2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 also tells us, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

    When the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in AD 70, the very generation Jesus was speaking to was subjected to a similar catastrophe, enslaved and scattered throughout the world.
  • Rob on Romans 8:16
    Where is the rapture in the Bible , we know the word is not but the event ?

    Last time Mishel gave verses that where out of context and other things and then changed his view saying he did not know , well yes we already knew that !

    So again where is this rapture event found in the Bible a second chance to prove you are not a false teacher ! Go for it !
  • Rob on Romans 8:16
    I'm not concerned about people that do not understand the scriptures, what is chaff to the wheat ?

    If anyone believes in the Rapture and all it's doctrines they have no clue on the Bible in general .

    If you think you can sin , and expect to go to heaven you have believed a devils gospel .

    Both of which M has taught .
  • Rob - in Reply on Romans 8:16
    I'm not concerned about and your kind you will be raptured away some day but where too ?

    I'm not condemning any one just speaking truth to errors !

    Amen !
  • JOB 39 on Matthew 19
    Job 39:15

    13
    Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

    14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

    15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

    16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;

    17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

    18 What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
  • Wayne - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    your rambling what are you trying say just say it.
  • Wayne - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    why was it okay for Lot to offer his virgin little girls to a crowd of men to rape ? and it was just fine with God that lots girls got him drunk and raped him ( incest ) ? and have you ever worked on the sabbath?

  • Eluid on Revelation 15:2
    You people have it wrong

    Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

    As I witnessed the glass tower full of people, in an inferno of fire, the jihadist had gotten a terror attack over President George W Bush, over President George H Bush, and over President Ronald Wilson Reagan, and President George W Bush morning and praying to GOD
  • Robert DeHaan on Ephesians 3
    And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that he may be filled with all the fulness of God. It is difficult to me to wrap my mind around being filled with the fulness of God. But what greater gift than to receive such as the most incredible gift, Jesus Christ the Son of God and Son of man. Holy Spirit touch us each day in a way that we knowingly are filled with the fulness of the Father. Help us to fill our hearts daily by Your Word. Thank you Jesus for dying for such a sinner as I. Forgiveness from sin should light the fire of revival in our souls.
  • Chris - in Reply on Joshua 5
    Joshua 5:1-7 seems to indicate that the rite of circumcision that is normally performed on male Israelite boys on the eighth day after birth, was not being done since the days of Israel's bondage in Egypt. While on their journey to the Promised Land, this act of being marked out as belonging to the God of Israel, was neglected during their onward march.

    So in verse 2, we read, "At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time". This "second time" phrase is misleading & certainly cannot mean a re-circumcision as that is not really possible nor required. I feel that we can understand it to mean that "what Israel had neglected to do according to God's directions, they must now do as a second (or, renewed) act to perform. So these who will now been circumcised would not just be babies but also men, as the rite has been re-established, which was once overlooked.

    But if you're also enquiring about the rite of circumcision, then this physical cutting was the permanent sign required by God that Israel was a separated people, different from any other people or nation ("a token of the Covenant betwixt Me & you", Deuteronomy 10:16). If it were only a marking on the flesh, then this would over time be obliterated, but circumcision would permanently show a separation of a people to God. For the Christian, circumcision & all Jewish rites are not observed, as Jesus death & resurrection & gift of the Holy Spirit meant that it would no longer be our skin, but our hearts that would be circumcised, as sin would no longer reign in us (Colossians 2:11). And this, God also would do for Israel (Deuteronomy 30:6) which is what circumcision of the flesh should direct all God's people to have: circumcision of the heart. But how often we fail, as Israel failed - but we find forgiveness at the Cross.
  • Rev Lori West on Isaiah 35:3
    Dear Donna,

    As mothers, oh how we hurt when our beloved children are in pain. I pray your dear son's knees to be strengthened miraculously whether it be from arthritis, past injury, not enough exercise, bad habits or whatever. We all need so much help whether it "shows" or not! So many things can start to go wrong that our whole Beings come under attack. It is an astounding pain to have our knees in bad shape, and one that affects our whole being. Soldiers in my family have faced many injuries to their knees and it has certainly touched my own life through two MVA's in 8 years that involved irresponsible drivers. Forgiveness is crucial, even If we haven't caused the problem. And forgiving ourselves is so vital when we have just plain made bad choices as well. So May every drop of grace and constructive help and direction Come to your family.

    I pray every blessing and mercy over Mike and your spirit, soul and body and all forms of tender mercies to flood both of you. It is so easy to put on weight and feel down and it can be just as bad for skinny Folks who for whatever reason have severe knee trouble. It's very hurtful, even humiliating when folks face pain of any kind that brings judgment and assumption to us, or our loved ones, as we don't want their struggle to bring them down into a physical or mental health crisis. You sound like a very caring mom and I'll be praying for you as you search for those prayers for strengthening the knees and causing new Hope to rise up for the times ahead...as you stand on His promise. May the Precious Holy Spirit speak to your beloved son about whatever may be heavy on his heart that might not show...we thank God for Jesus Who knows all about it. May His Truth and Love comfort you, dear sister.

    Respectfully,

    LW

  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 12:17
    Michelle, what a sad story you've shared. Your situation would rank high on a list of the many griefs a person can experience: that of not receiving love in a marriage, rather "manipulations & abuses". You have been despised & rejected & to then find solace, love & understanding in another, is indeed a natural human tendency. But the conviction & despair resulting from your actions has brought you now to this point of sorrow as well as the gnawing sense of the Spirit's absence.

    Your sorrow which must lead to repentance WILL find the Father's forgiveness. 2 Cor 7:10, "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death". This speaks of the difference between a true sorrow that comes from a heart that belongs to the Lord as opposed to the World's sorrow (here, means 'regret') which avails nothing. You are truly under conviction of your actions & this conviction can only be from the Holy Spirit Who longs to draw you back into cleanliness & harmony with the Lord.

    As much as you now feel the love & companionship that has been missing in your life for so long, the Word of God is clear about entering into a second marriage: 1 Corinthians 7:10-16. Divorce is an extreme permissible act, but re-marriage is not allowed. And that, as you will know, is because the marriage bond is of God & for a reason: Mark 10:7-12. You have been both physically & mentally faithful to your husband for so many years whilst under trying conditions; if at all possible, you need to go back to him & remain faithful in your vows, thereby being God's witness to him that might alert him to his errors. But if you have to leave, then God requires you to remain single. Many Christians in such a situation would prefer to re-marry, but then their position is not for us to judge.

    Scabies needs to be treated quickly & the home decontaminated. Anything that might cause us to become alert to sin is useful, but not necessarily a result of it.
