  • Alex on Revelation 12
    Comments by Alex about why Jesus Always refered to himself as the SON OF MAN. it was his salvation title .I.E. we must birth Christ in our hearts, as we have borne the image of the earthly we must also bear ( birth ) the image of the heavenly that what the new birth is all about,Bringing forth fruit unto God via the seed of the sower the word of God, My lil Children of whom i travail in birth again till Christ is formed in you. Thus the mystery of the Kingdom of God is truly Christ in you . Whosoever receiveth one such child in my name receiveth ME. In my Name implies he is the father of the Child th Child which is the H.G. Thats y he said that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit thats the h.g that is gonna be born in US via his seed his words which is the living words that comes out of his mouth his breath etc. Everytime he refers to himself as tHE SON OF MAN he was trying to tell them something thats y he said these things are hid from the wise and prudent but revealed unto babes and sucklings his Children which are SPIRITS THE H.G plural WHICH ARE THE CHILDREN OF PROMISE THE MULTIPLICATION OF CHRIST IN US MAKING HIM THE SON OF MAN, Mankinds fruit unto God which is a baby Christ . Thats y he said unless you receive the Kingdom of God as a lil Child etc impling a birth via his seed etc they don't call him the bridegroom for nothin he has a seed to sow in humanity , He saw his unborn Children in the eyes of humanity when he breate on them ok gbu

    And thank you too Wendy for what you just shared. Praise the Lord that your eyes & heart have been opened to the Truth & you have indeed been set free. So many RCs are kept in ignorance, believing the Mass is the 'be all & end all' to their faith. Also, by not getting into God's Word for themselves, many have continued in darkness, believing that they were walking in Light & saved through the Church. But the Lord will have His Way & that was wonderful to read that He has blessed you by bringing you on His Path. Walk on in the Joy & Blessing of the Lord.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 5:13
    As you may have read the earlier verses of that chapter, the LORD was against all the abominations, disobedience & their taking on of the wickednesses of the nations about them. In other words, verse 13 shows us that God is fired up, that nothing will cause Him to change His Mind about His people. They will feel the full force of His Anger & they will then know that it is the LORD Who has spoken & given out this Judgement against them. So He says they will know that His Word against them was said in zeal (ardour, force, eagerness to judge, jealous for their love). These are the words that fitly describe how the LORD felt & would respond.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    The word used for 'Judgement' can also mean 'Justice'. God often said that He required Judgement & Justice from those who were kings & leaders of His people. We know that God is both a Just God & a God Who will also Judge. He takes in all the facts of the case, including what man does not see, & then gives His Judgement. Though man will always fall short of God's Standard for Justice, God still expects him to give his best in weighing up the matters before them & thus give the correct Judgement. When God gives His Judgement, it will be absolutely correct, at which time the wicked will be dealt with & removed, but His people will be preserved.
  • Anthony Charles Ritchie on Revelation 1
    I have heard John was blinded on the Ilse. I can find no record of it. Where does this come from?
  • Maria MacKenzie - in Reply on Genesis 19
    Mishael, in addition look at Numbers on the Moabites situation. Apologies my spell check changed your name in the previous post to Michael, didn't realise until after I pressed send.
  • Maria MacKenzie - in Reply on Genesis 19
    Michael, good day. The two sons of Noah ie. Seth and Japeth didn't look at their father by not looking , Seth and Japeth showed their father respect and did not sin. They looked away and showed their father respect Japeth and Seth are not an equivalence in behaviour to lots daughters, Lots daughters are infact the opposite. Lots daughters took advantage of their father and had intercourse with him without his consent and bore offspring, their offspring were a product of a sin was my point. Mockery and incestuous relationships are specifically forbidden in Leviticus 18:6-29, or there abouts. It is thought Genesis may have been written after Leviticus, due to references specifically to periods that came after the exodus, which is after Genesis in order. Aside f on that just because it's not written down doesn't mean it's acceptable, the term called Oral laws, very common to most of the World at that time. The dating of books is an ongoing debate. Further Lots daughter s did not commit sodomy it is incest. Sodomy in biblical times referred to anal sex, which could not have made them pregnant, even if that may have been a part of it. Lots daughters offspring do not fair well. We see this in Exodus Amorites verses Moabites. Moab was the son of one of Lots daughters. Hope that helps.

  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 7:24
    I believe that since Christ's death & resurrection, everyone who hears the Gospel of Salvation, has a choice to make. And this choice is incumbent on the Holy Spirit's Work in the unbeliever's heart to prepare him & draw him to the Cross.

    2 Corinthians 6:2, "For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." The choice for all people is NOW & not at a later date when it could be too late or even after death, when there is no further opportunity to do so.
  • Chris - in Reply on John 3
    The Greek word "baptisma" seems to indicate a full immersion/submerging, yet we have to consider that in respect to Jesus' baptism, it was what we refer to as John's baptism. And we know, that this baptism was not our Christian/Believers' Baptism, as it was only an indication of a person's contrition over his sins & repentance. It couldn't mean any identification with Jesus' death & resurrection as that didn't occur yet, but it certainly looked forward to that special time when a full & true cleansing would take place.

    That is why John said, "I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?" Jesus didn't need to repent as He was sinless, so John was saying that, if anything, in your presence, I need to be rather baptized of you. So, if we take into account the Jewish baptism (tvilah) which involved full immersion/cleansing from various impurities of the flesh, then it's likely that John's baptism was also a full immersion, but for demonstrating the need for cleansing of the impurities of the heart.

    Thanks Jay and Michael. Yes good point on the spiritual aspect. Both physical and spiritual points are relevant.

    God bless.
  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 17
    Jesus often spoke of Himself as Son of Man as He sometimes referred to Himself as Son of God. He was correct in doing so, as He was both: He was the Word of God made flesh (man) John 1:1-14 and He was also a Man (by that same reference & the account of His human birth: Matthew 1:20-25). For His Own reasons, Jesus used these designations interchangeably depending on who He was speaking to & in what context. In any case, those that heard His teachings & saw His miracles knew that Jesus' claim to be the Son of God was clear & specific. Even at the cross, they cried out to Him, "If Thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross" (Matthew 27:40).

    Adam & Eve were our first parents & it wasn't until a specific calling (of Abraham) that a holy line of people began to form. True, of the sons of Noah (i.e. prior to Abraham), Shem was elected to be the forefather of the later nation of Israel. And from Shem, Abraham came & became the promise of being the father of a great nation (Genesis 12:1-3) & of many nations (Genesis 17:1-5). As the nation of Israel grew in number & expanded by conquering opposing lands, they began to intermarry with the Canaanite nations, when clearly forbidden to do so by God: Deuteronomy 7:1-4; 1 Kings 11:1,2; Nehemiah 13:3, 23-27. Therefore, I feel that there are no pure Jews today; even though some would have stayed true to the Word of God, maybe their children (even a few) chose to intermarry, then that purity would continue to diminish over succeeding generations. I hope that is what you were seeking to know Joseph.
  • Keith Vaughan on Luke 18
    Luke Chapter 18 is regarding wealth and it can effect people's faith in God. Also, the faith as a christian should not be based on money or being wealthy. Jesus,told a wealthy man to distribute his wealth to poor people. At first the wealthy man was reluctant, but was had a sense of satisfaction from seeing how is wealth had helped poor people to live better lifes.

    I will actually respond further Jay, as I wasn't referring to your Eccl 12:7 reference. I was referring to: "Comparably, the life-force returns to where it came from-God. (Job 34:14, 15; Psalms 36:9). This does not mean that the life-force actually travels to heaven. Rather, it means that for someone who dies, the time of future life rests with God."

    So what are you referring to when you write: "the life-force (man's spirit, which you explained earlier), doesn't travel to heaven - it means the time of future life rests with God"? I'm confused as to what you are trying to say here. Where does man's spirit go upon his death, if at all? I can't see any misrepresentation of your comments on my part - just reading as given & requiring further clarification, if you so desire. Thank you.
  • Eneh on 1 Corinthians 1
    Psalms 37:28 for God loveth judgement - what does that mean
  • Adam - in Reply on Romans 5
    Hello, why do you assume it's 'misquoted'?
  • Troy on 1 Corinthians 3
    How far into tribulations do the Christian's have to endure, before the rapture takes place???
  • Ptjones923gmailcom on Matthew 24
    Mathew 24:34.Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. This generation our Lord mentioned here is nothing other than our own generation, ie the current generation. Why? 1.It is our Lords words. 2.Fig tree denotes Israel nation. (Joel 1:7,1:12.)3.Israel reinstated in 1948 after long desolation. And now it is 70 years passed. A generation is defined in Pslam.90:10.Now it is the grace period.4.The righteous sun (the word of God)is darkening day by day by corrupt teachings.The moon that reflects light (true church)is also not giving light or in utter confusion. Pastors blames each others. Yes time is at hand. True believers be get ready.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on John 3
    Yes. It shows the Death (going under the water and the resuration coming up out of the water of Jesus.)
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 9
    When we that are saved die our souls return to Jesus.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on 1 John 1
    Us is God, Jesus and a whole bunch of angels.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Adam did die. Not that minute but later.
  • Stanjett on Exodus 24
    If they saw God, then they need to take the verus out of the bible that says "No one has seen God and lived.
  • Ken knox on Romans 5
    This is misquoted, please correct.

    For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
  • Jay - in Reply on Genesis 9
    Chris, I would suggest that you read my post a little more carefully. My quote "Speaking about man's death, Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it." end quote, and yet you would totally misrepresent my post.

    I feel it is a waste of my time in responding further, as you have knowingly misquoted me since my quote was clear and concise. I praise God and always Thank Jesus for trials which will strengthen us. You will be in my prayers.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 9
    That was interesting to read Jay. I do agree with your understanding of the soul & spirit of man. I could further state that the soul finds its fuller meaning in the personality & emotions of the individual, hence the soul, being an immaterial part, not only reveals the life of a person, but also his/her character.

    'Ruach' is clearly different to 'psykhe' & as you stated also comes from God giving life (breath) to the body which clothes the soul. As well, I understand man's spirit from God also functions as the means that God, by His Spirit, can communicate with man. Romans 8:16 speaks of this interaction. The spirit in us enables us to look beyond the immediate & temporal, to the One Who brought it all together, though many today stifle it preferring to understand their world & themselves, only through the soul (by reasoning & logic).

    Yet you write that on death, man's spirit doesn't return to God, whether to life or eternal death, rather it remains in 'limbo'. Am I understanding you correctly? Could you provide some Bible references or expand this thought further? Why I ask this, is that Eccl 12:7 which you quoted, speaks of this returning, or else, that man's spirit has to have a destiny, whether in a body or in a location. I understand the Ecclesiastes reference suggesting that, just as God gives a new born baby a spirit, so at death of that body, the spirit is then released & returned back to God - like a loan from God to enjoy Him & His creation. We have the accounts of the destinies of the rich man & Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31), the thief on the Cross (Luke 23:39-43) & Stephen's cry at his execution (Acts 7:55-60). All seem to suggest that our spirits remain alive, active & accountable whether in life in the body or cessation of earthly existence.
  • Jay - in Reply on Genesis 3
    You are correct Maria, and they are currently asleep awaiting the resurrection.

    Praise God, Thank You Jesus.
