    Read Psalms 22 ,think of Bible Prophecy and think of Jesus at Calvary.

    I'm very sorry to hear your loss this must be very hard for you I would like to hear your story if you wanted to tell it.
  • Jacob Hughes - in Reply on Psalms 34:17

  • Donna Williams - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    Thank God for His grace and mercy, that He has not rewarded us according to what our sins deserved!

    Knowledge is given to those who seek it. Ask God to open up the Bible to your heart. If you want to fast track your experience, I suggest you start off by reading these 5 books in order (of 66):

    1) Genesis 2) Isaiah 3) Daniel 4) Luke 5) Revelation

    This will give you a grasp on the Bibles foundation. Then when you have developed a feel for the Bible, go back and read Genesis through Revelation. It is a never ending learning process. Best of luck to you.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Psalms 90:10
    If we were to buy into some erroneous teachings regarding the time of the end we might easily be convinced that Jesus was not coming for his Church until certain scheduled events had occurred, thus ignoring the explicit admonition of Jesus to his disciples:

    Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. (Matthew 24:42-44)

    Both David and Salomon had serious personality conflicts, and lack of moral judgment. They were lucky God held them in high esteem, found pity on them, and spared them of their selfish, compounded sins.
  • Cindy - in Reply on Genesis 3
    You can tell the difference between a true prophet and a false prophet by testing. Compare their messages, prophesies, preaching, spirit, teachings, and works of the prophet with the Bible.

    Matthew 7:15-20 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

    True prophets teach the word of God.

    False prophets teach their own words.

    Look at the teachings of Jim Jones of the People's Temple and David Koresh of Waco and compare them to that of Billy Graham and John R. Rice and you will have a clear picture of the differences.
  • Dean Crabb on Psalms 34:15
    The "righteous" as I choose to believe are those who try to remain in Faith and walk with Him. Righteousness as a Christian I would hope is FIRST about Faith and Love and SECOND about good deeds that spring from that Faith and Love. Xo

    Soloman's original name was Solomon as named by his father David. Solomon means peace.

    Joshua's original name was Hoshea as derived from YAHWEH meaning salvation, referring to the Hebrew God. What a name for a great, but mere man!
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Jedidiah & Hoshea were their names.

    Oh Lord, I pray thy, please help me understand your words.
  • Ron - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Jesus' death did not cancel the Law He fulfilled the Law. We must not confuse the commandments of Jesus and the law of Moses. The sacrifices of the Law "ye could not be justified by the law of Moses". The law is written in our hearts

    We are not justified by the laws but by the faith in Jesus, the things of the law we do through faith not works. If we look to the law to do the law that is works and we are not saved by works but we are saved by grace and belief in Jesus. Just a few scriptures, and few of Jesus's commandments are; Follow Him, Repent, Don't Lust, Love and pray for your enemies, Love one another, Love God, etc. I know you may not agree but the ten commandments are part of the Law.

    Galatians 5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

    Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    Ephesians 2:15-16 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

    Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

    Let's not talk past each other. Chances are that neither of us will change our minds. In my humble opinion, this is a SECONDARY ISSUE, like between disagreements between Calvinists & Arminians or pre & post millennialist or baptism by immersion & baptism by sprinkling.

    There are Christians who are old earth creationists (OEC) who are NOT evolutionary creationists. I believe "And God said..." and He caused that thing to happen, not the slow evolution of all life from one organism by random selection and mutation.

    Frankly, both sides, YEC & OEC, have their strengths and weaknesses. I was a YEC for a long time, decades. I've read a lot and listened to both sides. OEC makes the most sense to my reading of Scripture and scientific observation.

    Psalms 19 declared both the "book" of nature revelation and The Book of supernatural revelation. A correct interpretation of BOTH is essential. I know that's what we all try to do. We have trouble with both in some cases. The MAIN things are the PLAIN things: who God is, who we are, how things got broke, God's plan to fix it, what we need to do. The NON-MAIN things: well we need to be charitable and allow for liberty among Christians. Doesn't mean we can't argue our points. But please, do not mischaracterized another's point of view. As an OEC, I am not an evolutionist in any sense that supports macro evolution, common descent by random selection and mutation!

    I think that if we could sit down and look each other in the eye and talk, we would have MORE important, significant things in common than not. And we could discuss those secondary areas where we disagree with civilly and with an open mind. I could be wrong and I'm willing to admit it.

    (Unfortunately, there are preachers who cram too many secondary things into the MAIN things, in my opinion.)
  • Robert D Taylor on 1 John 1
    Where is Samariah, wife of Nimrod mentioned in the Bible (Also Tammuz, their son).
  • Gabriel on Isaiah 58
    What do you think Isaiah 58:13 mean. What I know it means is, that if you don't keep it, you will be lost. Jesus said if ye love me keep my commandments. My brother John - the revelator, Not Sunday. If you do this, You do not love Him. Tell me, if this is truth.
  • Steve Dennis on Matthew 15:24
    Jesus told the Canaanite woman "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel" to fulfill the scriptures that were written concerning his death burial & resurrection! Scripture for told of his coming in many places! But the Jews could not accept that he was the Messiah because they lacked the faith to see it! But the Canaanite woman having faith worshiped him the scripture says and so Christ honored that and rebuked the devil from her daughter. Only after the crucifixion & resurrection was salvation now open to all.
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Numbers 8
    The little voice in my head that drives my conscience, likes swearing. I like to narrate the story with choice words. Foul language is akin to poor behavior, and ill manners. Other people don't hear me swear, it's mostly my internal dialog that gets salty. I have apologized for swearing. When I get bad news, or the like, it can flow like the river Nile. My favorite swear word is mf'er because it's so versatile in a rough and tumble America. I'm conscious of my words, and know that swearing and temper can be controlled.
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Oops, I thought you were saying something else, and I misread it. Sounds good to me now....
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Revelation 18
    The 144,000 die in the streets after their 42 months expire, and lay there in the street for 3 1/2 days. If you are calling these elect of the 12 tribes, from both houses of Israel (Israel & Judah = 2 witnesses) who are sealed from death 42 months, "the church", then know that anti-christ kills them; they die before the 7th trumpet. Then they, and the ones that remain alive at the 7th trumpet, who survived the great tribulation, are taken up in the clouds to meet Jesus at the second coming.
  • Linda Byrd on Genesis 1
    What was Solomon and Joshua's original name?
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Revelation 18
    America and Israel get fleeced at the day of the Lord as destruction from the Almighty. God brings the beast Russian army with 10 toes forth to do His will against Babylon (Ezekiel 38:4-7). In vs 7, Russia protects its allies, so expect 'Jacob's time of trouble' soon after US/Israel bomb Iran's nuclear facility (Revelation 6:14). God has commissioned HIS beast army to annihilate the whole house of Israel within 1 hour. God says the terrors will be upon my people!!! (Ezekiel 21:12).

    A little further down, Ezekiel 21:18-20 identifies two lands chosen for destruction: Ammonites (US) and Jerusalem (Israel).

    I will die a happy man knowing that America and Israel got stuffed before they succeeded in ruling the world for a thousand years from Israel, like our savior Jesus Christ will. It couldn't happen to two kinder, gentler nations. Reap the worldwind, pay the piper.
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Psalms 90:10
    Charlotte Ann,

    The rapture is at the end, at the 7th trumpet, and for the very few who survived the chaos. We haven't been hit with the 6th trumpet yet (Isaiah 13, Isaiah 47, Revelation 18), the day of the Lord, the abomination of desolation set in America, or the invasion and captivity of Israel. You'll have to make it through anti-christ's 42 month rule before any intervention occurs. Everything Biblical has a specific order and time-line to be fulfilled.

    Happy birthday!!!
  • Truth always on Hebrews 13
    I have been enjoying the book of Hebrews today and a lovely way to cap it off

    Verse 5 , and for he hath said , I will never leave thee , nor forsake thee . Yes he has always been there for me ! I can testify!

    Verse 6 So that we may BOLDLY say the Lord is my helper , and will not fear what man shall do unto me . Amen !
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Take it easy, Adam. May God will hear your prayers and bring you around to full health. Remember Hezekiah: Isaiah 38:1-5 Nothing is impossible with God.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Know I am praying for you brother Adam. As many others here are. Peace be with you.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Numbers 8
    Hi Monica. Here's a Little commentary on Abraham you will find in the New testament to parallel with Genesis ch 11:26 through Genesis Ch 25.

    Acts 7:2-10. And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,

    And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.

    Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell.

    And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.

    And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.

    And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.

    And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.

    And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,

    And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.

    Abraham is a great study, And always ask questions and seek answers. Thank you.
