    Carlos,

    I agree with you that Matthew 24 is speaking about end time events. Both Chapters 24 and 25 give us the details. You've shared some good information here. The only thing I would see differently is that Jesus is giving us the specific details of a future event, but not giving us the specific time. We don't know the time, only the events that are coming.

    Also, from your last statement, it looks like you are saying that believers will go through the Great Tribulation? Well, if we are still alive on this earth when that time comes, I want wish you luck. I plan on being raptured well before that time when God's wrath will be poured out in judgement on a non-believing world.
  • Mishael to Michael - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14:34
    If people will read Genesis very slowly; note chronological events that match; it will make more sense. It takes more work on your part; and this generation is the NOW generation. I want it now and I don't want to work for it.

    Also: the center columns are references to the alphabet or numbers that are within the verses. They expand the understanding of those verses.

    At the entrance to this website is a search box. Bring up the verse you want answers to: then scroll down to the Commentary box. Lots of info in that.

    Study to show yourself approved. So many subjects will be opened up to you, you'll really be blessed by your discoveries. You'll want to share them right away.

    Sometimes you'll have to use google to find a verse you can't remember the words to.

    Better yet, ask the Holy Spirit to help you study :D

    How old was Jesus when Joseph and Mary were told by the angel to flee with Him to Egypt?
  • D W L - in Reply on Revelation 21
    (I believe we all lie and some of us fall under the other things listed. So, because we all lie, doesn't that mean we are all going to experience the first or second death?)

    So that says you don't believe! No one has authority to take from or add to --

    Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and ALL liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
  • Charles D Anderson on Psalms 91:2
    Why is life for people of color so hard; is this God's will that suffering and sorrow

    Required to walk with Jesus?
  • Patrick M Cooper on 1 Corinthians 9:22
    Is that referring to the Age of Grace
  • Joshua on John 1:3
    '..the Word(Jesus) was made flesh, and dwelt among us'. This whole chapter, and the entire Bible became so much more amazing to me once God showed me that the 'Word' spoken of in John chapter 1 is Jesus Christ. Verse 1: 'In the beginning was the Word(Jesus), and the Word(Jesus) was WITH GOD, AND THE WORD(Jesus) WAS GOD.'
  • Joshua on John 1:14
    "..the Word(Jesus) was made flesh, and dwelt among us".
  • Revelation Patmos - in Reply on Genesis 10
    To Confused. I think looking at it that Adam sinned therefore we are all sinners it can lead to laying blame on someone else Adam for our sins which is not the intent of the Scriptures I think the intent is more that through Adam and Eve sin entered the world and is now present and because of that we now have a choice to do Good or evil. remember all was Good in the garden. So we are now in a fallen state and have choices to make to sin or not to sin and we all choose to sin one way or another through out our lives. Thank fully GOD has provided a way for us to be reconciled to HIM through HIS SON JESUS who is without sin precious is HIS name who took upon HIMSELF the sins of the whole world upon that cruel cross so we would all have an opportunity to repent and ask Forgiveness for our sins that we did will fully on our own accord. So we are not sinners because of Adam, Eve or anyone else but by our own choices. I hope and pray this is helpful for you GOD Bless on your journey.
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 2:5
    Yes, but there was still irrigation. It says there was a mist from the earth that watered the ground in Genesis 2:6. It may have been like a biosphere / biodome and perhaps humid and fertile for plant life.
  • Michael Reidy on 1 Corinthians 14:34
    Unfortunately, we have professing Christians who dont trust what Paul is writing came from God. They say those words are for differnt times in history. "Surely God knows, letting a woman speak in Church will be lovely and intertaining t the heart and pleasing to the eyes. Surely God must be confused about this?

    Is God confused about Gay marriage too or/same sex marriage?

    Is God confused about Abortion as well or is he only confused about what Paul said about woman? LOL...do you see the stupity in man / woman?

    Genesis 8:2

    you seem to be and I would say that you are right on; but I don't know how long that was after Adam as I have never read the verses between Adam and that flood; and it probably does not list every generation and maybe only the relevant ones. very interesting
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 2:5
    a good question
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 24:29
    Hi Carlos,

    Are these stars maybe referencing angels and not people? In the book of Revelation, the stars are making reference to angels, spirit beings. It is interesting that Jesus had a star, and it was a special star. In Matthew Chapter 2, it was called "His star."

    I am wondering, and I have no scriptural evidence of this, but I am just wondering if that was the same star (Angel) that ministered to Jesus while He was out in the wilderness for 40 days? Honestly, I do not know the answer to that. It's just a thought!
  • Jesse - in Reply on Romans 9:13
    Art,

    I don't think Romans 9:13 has anything to do with predestination or salvation. God doesn't determine ahead of time who will or will not be saved. He knows who will receive Him and who will reject Him. Predestination is never associated with salvation in the bible. You will always see the word associated with those who are already saved. It's what has been predestined or chosen for us as part of our inheritance. Predestination in the bible never has anything to do with predestinating people for Heaven or Hell. It's never used that way.

    Every time the word predestinated is used in the scriptures; it always makes reference to part of our inheritance in Christ. If He did not choose me and predestine me to be holy and without blame before Him in His love, I'd never be able to stand before Him. But I've received Christ as part of my inheritance.

    Christ died for everybody. He knows ahead of time who will receive Him. He never forces anybody to receive Him or reject Him. Because I am in Christ, I have been predestined by God to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren, that is, the head of the body of Christ, as He is.

    As far as free will goes, you're going to upset a lot of "free-willies" here if you are telling them that they don't have a free will. Everyone has free will, and as long as they live in a body of flesh, they will always have that free will. But what is free will attached to, your flesh or your spirit?

    It is the flesh that has free will. But God could care less about our flesh. He didn't save our flesh. He saved our spirit, our soul. Our flesh will NEVER submit to the things of the Lord because it will always be in opposition to Him. But our spirit, our soul, as Paul says, we are slaves to Jesus Christ. No free will when it comes to our soul. Our soul is saved forever if Christ is in us. He does not give us eternal life. He gives us Himself, and He is eternal life. That's why we have eternal life!
  • Carol - in Reply on Psalms 8
    "To the law and to the testimony, if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them". Isiah 8:20 When Jesus was nailed to the cross the Mosaic Laws was also nailed to the cross. We no longer had to sacrifice animals for forgiveness, Jesus was the Lamb that was slain. His blood covers our sins. The Ten Commandments is God's character. His Ten Commandments still stand. If they do not, then it is okay to lie, steal, murder, covet etc. We can't pick and choose what commandments we keep. If you offend in one you offend in all. Colossians 2:8 "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ"

    Matthew 5:17, 18 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled". Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments , that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city".

    I do believe in keeping the Sabbath, but keeping the Sabbath is only one of God's commandments. We have to obey all of God's Commandments. Jesus died so that we may be saved.
  • Etta on Luke 23

  • Alex on Luke 23
    comment on Psalms 78 and Matthew 13 kjv I will open my mouth in a PARABLE i will utter things kept SECRET from the foundation of the world Jesus was releasing his secret in the parable of the sower and his seed which is the living word th new covenant. God is gonna put his Words/seeds in our hearts and minds initiating a birth of Christ in Mankind AS THE FIELD IS THE WORLD .Jesus is gonna utter Gods simply b/c his words/seed are the very seeds of God,I have said meaning his Words are the very seeds of God,I have said ye are Gods thats y he is saying to whom the Word came ( his seed ) ye are Gods And the scripture cannot be broken. Jesus even tells us the good seed are the children of the kingdom i.e his seed are Children not flesh and blood children but heavenly children th H.G CHILDREN as that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the H.G. THATS THE CHILD he was refering to when he said whosoever receiveth one Child in my NAME recieves ME.When he Said i have Said ye are Gods ( Said implies his breath ). Not only is Jesus God but his breath, his Word is the very seed of God and this cannot be refuted as it was the great Promise the multiplication of God remember God the father swore by his very self when he made the PROMISE that Christ wd be multiplied as the stars of heaven thus the sower and his seed is the secret and is about the multiplication of God inhumanity as the field is the world. And thats y Jesus refers to the H.G as the Promise ,the H.G is the offspring of Jesus meaning his seed the PROMISE,Jesus cd not refer to the H.G as the promise if he were not his offspring the Granson. the Israel of God. Without Jacob the Granson in the Abrahamic trinity there cd not have been a Nation of israel. Thus there cannot be an Israel of God without the heavenly trinity simply b/c Christ is gonna be multiplied as the stars of heaven which is the Israel of God thus the sower and his precious seed the Word th new covenant ( the book ) in Gods right hand. gbu

    and then ADAM and Eve was the first generation; and God walked with Adam and gave instructions to him; and created Eve for Adam etc

    Hi Deannea,

    You have a noble desire, and I trust God will help you.

    This website's verse of the day is beautiful. "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Jeremiah 33:3 God bless you in your battle!

  • Carlos Ramirez Trevio on Matthew 24:29
    A study of the metaphorical reference to stars in the Bible, shows that stars are iften a reference to people, not just physical heavenly bodies, such as stars, meteors, planets.

    See examples in:

    Revelation 1:20

    Jude 1:13

    Nahum 3:16

    Judges 5:20

    Revelation 9:1
  • Carl - in Reply on Revelation 12
    We have a beautiful promise in Romans 8:26 "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

    God bless according to your need.
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 2
    In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth.

    People sometimes have trouble with chapter 1 and 2 and so maybe it is best to take it from the beginning, and look at one verse at a time. I love this particular one as it could not have been said any better. In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth. It doesn't say when the beginning was, not yet; but later we will see He created "lIght', and dIvided it from darkness and so the beginning was the first day. Genesis 1:5
  • Carlos Ramirez Trevio - in Reply on Matthew 24:29
    Interesting observation by Peter Walton on an event that occurred in 1833, when the earth was showered with a spectacular display of meteors penetrating the atmosphere.

    But is that what Christ was referencing in Matthew 24, when He spoke of stars falling to earth?

    Is the reference to stars a reference to actual meteors, or is it a metaphorical reference to something else?

    I think a study of Revelation and other passages in Scripture will lead us to the conclusion that the stars, in the context of Matthew 24, was more a reference to people in positions of leadership. Don't we often, for example, refer to someone with great talent or accomplishments as a Star?

    See Numbers 24:17, for example. Here, Jesus is described as a star. See also Daniel 12:3. The reference to the stars, just as to the Sun and the Moon, might best be understood as a reference to people, governments, heads of state, people of influence.

    Jesus was the Bright and Morning Star.
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 1:5
    SO WELL SAID

    God created, one must know how to create in our own lives. Speaking those things into existence that one truly desires, then knowing what is good and speaking good over our creations
  • Alex on Luke 23
    Jesus had some secrets that he did not reveal about the kingdom, that it wd come as a birth via a seed in mankinds hearts,but it was hid from the wise and prudent but revealed unto babes,the babes are spritual babes that are gonna be BORN in US ( THE HEAVENLY BIRTH ) Ya gotta realize there is a Child coming that is gonna be born in US via his seed,it was not even revealed unto the disciples at that time,When they argued amongest themselves which was gonna be the greatest Jesus took a lil child and set him in their mists, it was prophetic that he is gonna put a Child in our mists in our hearts which is the H.G. and that is who is the greatest but that was the secret our new innerman which answers to the NEW BIRTH,THAT NEW CREATURE. Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision impling neither jew nor gentile but a new creature which is the H.G. That is new to us but is Old being he was with GOD b/f the world was.Out of their hearts they shall bring forth things new and old thats our new innerman that new creature but is really old since he was preordained b/f the world was.We were all born by the will of some man its only our new innerman that is born by the will of God,not a flesh and blood but a spritual being his name sake. Who is my Mother them that hear the word/seed and keeps it that will initiate a birth of Christ in us thus we are his mother spritually speaking.She brought forth a man child that is gona rule all nations,humanity is that woman that is gonna birth Christ in our hearts and minds thus he is truly the Son of Man ( mankinds fruit unto God ) My lil children of whom i travail in birth till Christ is formed in you. gbu
  • Carlos Ramirez Trevio on Matthew 24:29
    To better understand Matthew 24, we should start by reading verses 29-30, then go back to the beginning. And as we read and examine the admonitions of Christ in this Chapter, we should keep reflecting on these two pivotal verses.

    It is unquestionably the case, that Matthew is written for the followers of Christ. Whether the theme is the Jewish lineage of Christ or fulfillment of OT Messianic prophecy, Matthew was written for the Believer.

    And that is how the Chapter begins. Christ outlines the events preceding His Return and the end of the age. These are two conjunctive events that are dependent on eachother.

    This is the only place in the entire Bible where it identifies a specific time for the Return of Christ. And it is Christ Himself who tells us, His Disciples, when He will Return.

    First, He identifies several things that will happen. One is the spread of the Gospel throughout the world. Then the Revelation of the AntiChrist, as he sits in the Holy of Holies in the Temple in Jerusalem and proclaims himself God.

    Daniel 7-9, 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation 13, among others, help put this in perspective for us. The Abomination, the AntiChrist enters the Temple to desecrate it, in the middle of the week. That is, 3 1/2 years into the Tribulation.

    The act that desecrates the Temple, initiates the Great Tribulation. That latter half of the 7 year Tribulation will last approximately 3 1/2 years more.

    Then, Jesus emphasizes, then and only then, you will see me Return. Don't be fooled, Jesus cautions. I will Return IMMEDIATELY AFTER all these things. Not before, AFTER. IMMEDIATELY AFTER the Great Tribulation of those days.

    Keep in mind that this is the only place in the entire Bible were we are given a specific time for the Return of Jesus. And it is Jesus Himself who tells us. Don't be fooled, Jesus cautions.

    After the Great Tribulation we will be gathered up to meet Jesus in the air. See similarities in language with 1 Thess 4 and others.
