    1 John 2.17 ,18,19,20,21 .....

    We are out numbered but not out powered .
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 12:6
    I adhere to this one scripture for me.

    1 Corinthians 10:23

    "All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not."

    Drinking Too much alcohol can result in disasters, death, car crashes, unplanned pregnancy, and making others stumble in their walk with Jesus because they see a church leader under the influence.

    It's not just alcohol either; smoking, swearing, drugs? I think of those with tender consciences that may wander away from the Lord, disillusioned.

    I get as much enjoyment wit a glass of iced tea with friends, out on the porch.

    I don't think wine with dinner is sinful. Just don't overdo it.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Malachi 4
    What a Good Word for us today! I've never thought of it that way. Thank you and may God bless you for your kindness.
  • Mervyn David Howell on 1 Corinthians 1:26
    A great verse for anyone tempted to doubt they are legitimate heirs of GOD.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Luke 21:32
    I don't have to bow down to you!

    Is your real name Bob?
  • Ellie on Genesis 6
    That was really good.

    I just read that in my devotions.

  • J lawrence on Mark 2:23
    It would be interesting to know what the original word was for the actual item they plucked: some say corn some say grain some say wheat.

    I've always assumed it would be wheat: Corn doesn't come on ears it comes on a cob and it is well

    Wrapped up. Hard to get at the individual nuts. Wheat is on the ear.

    Also it is more ludicrous that they should be accused of sabbath breaking just for plucking an ear of wheat. Plus of course, taking

    A whole cob of corn would get them

    arrested for theft.
  • Getting Right with God - in Reply on Ezra 1
    First: exit out to where you clicked the Link to come into this room.

    Click the "Become A Christian" Link.

    We can't get to the counciling part, until you get through the repentance part, to be restored in your faith;

    Or to become a Christian.

    I didn't really know what I was doing at 13 years old when I was baptised. I did that because all my friends did it.

    Get things straightened out between you and Jesus first. Don't be discouraged. You are going to emerge from that room; a new creature in Christ Jesus. Washed clean. Sealed with the Holy Spirit. The old life will pass away.

    Like we all had to do, ask the Lord to help you keep your passions in check, until marriage with a Christian man.

    Go ye into the room that will set your life on the narrow path again.

  • Unsaved Last Days Prople - in Reply on Romans 15:13
    2 Peter 3

    3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

    4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

    2 Timothy 3

    1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

    2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

    3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

    4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

    Romans Chapter 1

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    Philippians 3:2

    Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. (Comment: dogs sniff things they ought not to)

    1 Timothy 6

    3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

    4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

    This is what every country is experiencing. The Bible says that it will 'wax worse and worse.' Your faith needs to be strong in what the New Testament teaches on these Last Days before Jesus's Return.

    The unsaved will be in these comment rooms preaching their heresies. They are reprobate. Don't listen to their rants.

    Hello my brother Robert,

    Know that you are in my prayers every single day. One thing I pray about specifically is back pains to be healed. Along with many other things. One day we will be with Him in Heaven. As so many of us yearn, for this, we must be patient. God Bless you my brother, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord!
  • A Jewish Wedding on Revelation 16:16
    These are actual 7 steps of a Jewish wedding.

    1. First, the Jewish groom barters with the father of the bride. They get together and they go back-and-forth, and barter as to what the deal is going to be.

    2. Once they reach an agreement, the future bride is brought in. And if she approves of it, all three of them drink out of the covenant cup, which means from that time forward they are betrothed.

    3. The groom goes back to his father's house to build their living quarters. It is built right off of the family home. And once the wedding takes place, and they are now married, they will go back to his family's home, and there will be living quarters that will be for them.

    4. The father of the groom decides when the living quarters are done, and when he can go get his bride. What does that tell us? We don't know the time or the hour. It has to be a minimum of one year because it is a time of purity for her. The groom can go get his bride when his father decides it's time.

    5. When the marriage announcement is made, catch this: the people who have already been invited to the wedding feast, they take their positions along the parade route, because the groom is going to get his bride. And there are people stationed in position all the way along the route. They join the parade as it passes by. It is called a parade.

    6. When the groom reaches the bride's house, he stands at a distance and blows the shofar, the trumpet, for the bride to come out and meet him. And the wedding takes place at that time. Do you see anything in there about prophecy? The groom comes to get his bride, and he stands a ways off and blows the trumpet, and she comes out to meet him.

    7. The parade goes back to the groom's house and the wedding feast begins. All of the guests in the parade gather in the Fellowship Hall, and the door is shut. This is not an open public thing.

    Compare this to prophecy in Matthew Chapter 25

    Be looking for our Bridegroom!

    Guilt is the big one! A soul that comes out of the wilderness and finds salvation in the love of Christ, will learn , will learn that there is no more guilt. Your flesh will remind you often, until the day of judgment .Remember, Christ has overcome the things of this world, and so will you if you abide in him! He created you, made you, and loves you!
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Ezra 1
    Adam, a name from the beginning! your answer is correct and to the point! salvation is ours once again through the sacrifice of our lord Jesus. Through faith in his word, god plants his seed into us that we may grow thereby! all our sins are washed, cleansed away. We are new creatures with a new nature ,we are like him. His friends, no longer servants.
  • Jack Gutknecht on Psalms 56:3
    I think this verse and others like it can soothe my anxiety before Election Day.
  • Wampus - in Reply on Genesis 1
    God is the one to turn to
  • Adam - in Reply on Ezra 1
    Dear Jennifer,

    If you are a Christian who follows Jesus and are genuinely repentant, yes God forgives you; you are absolutely forgiven and washed clean by Jesus paying for your sins on the cross. God used people like Paul (who used to murder Christians) for great works, and Moses (who killed too) for amazing works. God forgives and will use us, despite our shortcomings, for His glory. I think he even prefers the imperfect, the underdogs, over self-righteous people like pharisees. God bless.
  • Wampus on Genesis 1

    If repentance is done properly, stop having abortions and make restitution if possible .

    If we reguard iniquity in our hearts God will not hear us .

    Ask for Gods mercy he will help the helpless . And teach you what to do through his word .

    When you get peace about it that's a sign you have peace with God .

    But do not settle for false peace that lies can give . The peace of God is beyond understanding and is deep !
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    God multiple times said That He is God alone . Specifically.
  • Jennifer Stanley on Ezra 1
    does God forgive 2 abortions?
  • Adam - in Reply on Romans 15:13
    Hi Candace,

    We live in a fallen world that shows great contrast between good and evil. Ephesians 6:10-12. Satan is allowed to rule the world and there's plenty of evidence of that. 1 John 5:19

    We are only on earth a short time and are given freewill to choose who we want to follow: Jesus or Satan. Most people choose Satan and his signature is lies. We see more lies and deception today than ever- a big one is the news media spreading complete lies that they know is untrue, but still they enjoy doing the work of the devil and they financially benefit from stirring up drama.

    We have an election between a candidate that wants to mass-murder babies and give 8 year olds hormones to transition, vs. someone who is strongly against it, but strangely, many Christians have been deceived themselves into voting for mass murder- to destroy God's creation, somehow thinking it's a 'lesser evil', even though there is no greater evil than mass murdering babies- more than the holocaust just in the US and their hearts and souls cry out to God and God hears their cry and will seek justice. Many people have been deceived by the devil and don't even realize it.

    If God didn't allow any problems and didn't allow us to be tested or to have a choice we might be robots in heaven. But that's not what earth is.

    These are just my ideas to help answer your question. God bless you.
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Hi Rob,

    I'm wondering what your motive is for coming to a Bible website and accusing Christians who believe the trinity of being under a "curse"- something that most Christians believe in. Is that how you lovingly are looking to exchange information about the Bible to edify each other or are just looking to start a quarrel and do the opposite? Romans 14:19, Ephesians 4:32, Ephesians 4:29.

    The reason people believe that God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Ghost) are one is that it literally says that in the Bible in 1 John 5:7 and elsewhere: Link

    Do you think this is a salvation issue where someone may go to hell for believing the Bible verses such as 1 John 5:7 or why else are you so strong to condemn Bible believing Christians? What if someone accused you of what you're accusing others- that you yourself are spreading a "heinous doctrine" and are under a "curse," how would that make you feel and would it be true?
  • Candace Good on Romans 15:13
    I guess I would like to know why is all this corruption happen in the world today? God is of Love and all I see is hate... Is this suppose to happen, what's going on?
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on 1 John 2
    Glory to the LORD! He hides precious gems in plain sight and we get to dig them out ;)
  • Many people where murdered in the past for not adhering to the trinity doctrine , which proves it's not at all from God if you have a rational mind .

    So in supporting this heinous doctrine you are under the Gods curse of it .
  • Rob - in Reply on 1 John 2
    Lol really !
  • Rob - in Reply on 1 John 2
    Jesus was born of God !

    Does that help you ?

    Let's get over this false doctrine. Of the trinity!

    Why was Jesus born in Bethlehem? Think about it !

    He did not have a mans flesh !

    Can you put 2and 2 together?
  • Shirley on 2 Maccabees 2
