  • Jon on Revelation 1
    How do I know if I'm blessed with the holy spirit I was recently born again and I'm not sure ?
  • Elizabeth F McVeigh - in Reply on 1 Samuel 2
    I have found there is deception in every area of man's knowledge. The Bible is the only truth. I believe the scriptures say the earth is flat. I am interested to know how you interpret the earth having corners and yet being a circle.
  • Munyaradzi Arota on Psalms 23:1
    Psalms 23:1 comment

    1;The Lord is my shepherd; there are two types of shepherds, (hireling and a good shepherd)

    A hireling is the shepherd that takes care of the sheep only for money yet the good shepherd does it whole hearted, Jesus Christ is the good shepherd who takes good care of the sheep (believers in Christ both Jews and Gentiles) A hireling are pastors that are preaching for money and without money they don't preach.

  • Mishael on Goliath size faith - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    It may be that autism is a palsy and easily cured with the prayers of Faith.

    And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing ALL MANNER of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

    And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the PALSY; and he healed them.

    If our Faith is small concerning some illnesses; it's hard for us to trust Jesus. People have to go through the New Testament and feed their Faith just to receive a miracle. What the doctors can't do, Jesus wants to and can. If the Church worldwide got radical against autism...wouldn't that be a testimony to Jesus?

    We don't lay down and take it. My nephew has it; I've been praying for him; he's in the service now becoming a Seal.

    Corporate prayer at your church or one that is tough on demon oppression, can unite their corporate faith and cast that demon of autism out! When Jesus gets involved, good things can happen.

    Most important; be careful of your verbal conversations of doubting faith. Don't be Doubting Thomas. Pray and get all the faithless speech DELETED off the book. Your confessions should be full of hope and faith.

    Conversation = Faith

    It takes determination based on faith scripture. Pump it up and then see what Jesus does. What Satan meant for evil: to curse a life...will be turned to good; to give GLORY to Jesus (who still heals). On Sunday too :)

    Remember! Corporate Prayer.

    There are Christians beside you in church that look like Goliath in the faith department. Call up the old ladies too. We're talking about a kids life. God's got His people....

    Go listen to 'Sunday's on the Way' by Carman, on youtube.
  • Mishael on Angels Unaware - in Reply on Revelation 18
    As a street minister when I was younger, I bought McDonalds coupon booklets (for food) and gave them to old ladies or alcoholics who forget to eat food. I'd listen to their stories and tell them of a day when there would be no more sadness or tears; about a Savior who knows them personally.

    Jesus said to us: when did you see Me, hungry and thirsty, sad and alone, in prison (real or in my mind), In need of clothing etc.

    We can't help all of them, but I promise you the Holy Spirit will lead you to the right ones!

    Also, it's possible to meet angels unaware out there too. I saw a man walking with bad feet and broke driving laws to circle back, pick him up and take him to get brand new shoes and socks. It was dark & raining. I didn't find him. I looked everywhere.

    8 months later at the doctors office, I was telling the doctor about bad feet stories. His eyes were all big...he told me he picked that man up that night. He did surgery on his feet for free. Bought him good shoes and took him back to his neighborhood.

    Stuff like that happens because Jesus knows everybody!
  • Mike on Genesis 1:2
    The earth "became" (Hebrew: hayah) without form and void...that is, it became without the form of God's righteousness and void of the knowledge of God as all are not righteous and have turned away out of the Way of righteousness and none understand:

    Romans 3:10-12 KJV

    (10) As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

    (11) There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

    (12) They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

    Darkness was upon the face of the deep as mankind's foolish heart (all together) had become darkened:

    Romans 1:20-22 KJV

    (20) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    (21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters....holy men of God speak (waters = tongues, languages, etc) as they are moved by the Holy Spirit.

    2 Peter 1:20-21 KJV

    (20) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    (21) For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
  • Joan on Acts 5
    The story of Ananias and Saphira has always upset me, every time I read it. It seems to me that what they did was a very human thing, and certainly it was a sin; but the other people were giving everything they had, so it would have been embarrassing to admit that this was only a part of the sale price that they were bringing. It seems to me like a very harsh punishment. I'm crying!
  • Hogan - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1
    This is a beautiful testimony and prophecy of Christ's love for his people. "Virgins" are considered (the church) or people in Christ. See Matthew 25:1-13. Verse 2 and 3 proclaims Christ's love and having a relationship with Christ is health and healing to us wholly and is better than wine! Verse 4 is expressed being drawn nearer to Christ, through His "love invitation" and acceptance.Those who receives his invitation and love will run after him and will be glad and rejoice in him, and will remember his love more than wine: the upright love him.
  • Monique Manning-Jones on Isaiah 58 on Isaiah 58
    When I was a little girl, Bible study instilled in me that JESUS is a personal Saviour. Unfortunately, through life, my spirituality faltered on a dismal failure from being disobedient. But one day, when I was truly crying out for light in my darkness, the HOLY SPIRIT guided me to Isaiah 58. In that reading, comfort was administered with a deeper understanding of the relationship I could have with my FATHER. It is indeed a one-on-one, personal relationship made possible by the suffering and great sacrifice of JESUS CHRIST.



    I understand verses 1-5, simply as redirection from GOD through Isaiah to stop our public and ceremonial fasting, which misses the point altogether of personally and meaningfully communicating our love to our FATHER.

    GOD speaks to the hearts of all who are seeking HIM in Verses 6-8. HE makes plain what HE truly wants from HIS children -to love HIM and to love our neighbors - which of course is the precursor to the two great commandments of HIS only begotten SON, JESUS. (Matthew 22:36-40)"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.")

    In Verses 9-12, GOD clarifies that to fill our lives with loving and giving to others, is loving HIM - and in return, HE rewards us breathtakingly and powerfully.

    But as a humbled child of GOD, it is in verses 13-14, that GOD reveals to me the sacred urgency of keeping the 4th commandment, "Remember the SABBATH DAY and keep it HOLY." HE tenders to my spirit how very much it means to HIM personally when I accept in my heart the sanctity of HIS (our Creator's) chosen day of rest.

    For obeying HIM out of love and gratefulness, not fear, the blessings upon blessings, I receive from the vastness of HIS power, grace and mercy, empower me in ways mere words cannot express.
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    I am finish my research on autism of course and Also have a few health problems And poor eyesight and usually don't comment however I will answer briefly but to do justice to your question, it would take maybe two or three pages however I will answer like this. First of all, if these things affect the child to cause autism, or if anything else affects the child to cause all autism they must be a mechanism of action, aka, Mode of Action aka Mode of Development. Briefly, I thought that that Mode was hallucinations as I had hallucinated fpr several days when i was drugged when i was about 30; but in spite of the fact that any of the senses can be hallucinated' no one beloved it; and they said I would have to do research ti prove it. How do you do research to prove the obvious? Even Murphy's Law says that if a thing can happen; it will and when it rains, it will pour. The fact is however i=s that no one has even seen an infant or baby hallucinate...... I wonder why?

    So, I did about 15 years of research; etc.

    Now to answer your question, I have heard of young children having seizures after the immunization shot/ not sure which one? Do i think these things that u refer to cause Autism. Not in all cases for sure; but some maybe. So i don't go there although I do not disagree with you or any of the other anti vaccine people. I do know that Immunization works but I do not know if all those shots in young children are necessary. I do know that most cases are due to an atypical stimulation where just one of the senses are affected; and that plays over and over repetitiously and that always leads to fear development, hallucination and sudden Fight or flight.

    I do not think anyone followed or accepted my research from the beginning, and there was always new research; but these things you referred to, were commented on several times but I have never done any research in that regard. My research was to find the cause and I did that in ever which way,
  • Sunday Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 91:1
    "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty". He who dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High. God has a secret place for His own [Psalms 27:5, 31:20], and it is a Place to Live in. Those who dwell there abide under the shadow of the Almighty, knowing His Protection, Comfort and Care. Every Child of God looks towards, the inner Sanctuary and the Mercy-Seat, yet all do not dwell in the Most Holy place, they run to it at times, and enjoy occasional approaches, but they do not habitually reside in the mysterious Presence.
  • Carl Christian on Psalms 46:10
    EL is God the Father Elohim is the Trinity which is correct for Psalms 46:10?
  • Rev J Rodney Quesenberry on Proverbs 12
    Verse 2 says that a good man obtaineth favor of the Lord. Our God and our Father gives favor to those who are good. Obtaineth in the KJV means to get it presently. Any word in the Bible that adds "eth" on a word means in the present, right now. A good person right now, gets His favor right now. Does He favor some over others? Can He show favor to some and not others without being a respector of persons, which He is not? Absolutely. He is God. He elevates His in life. Who are those that are good and understanding our goodness or righteousness is filthy rags? It's the one who has been born again by His Spirit through what Jesus His Son our Savior and Sanctifier has done at Calvary and the beating before the cross. We obtain favor constantly and daily through Jesus that we acknowledge and follow and lives through our life. He elevates that person in all of their life and what relates to them in life. Hallelujah
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    You can't go through life, being afraid to touch this, and not touch that! so many people are so afraid! so many so called christians are like, too afraid to , like, sit down or just sit next to a homeless person, because they might get a little dirty! baby, you can go on facebook or twitter, or what have you...doesn't mean you have to do what everybody else is doing. you need to drop the self-righteous-attitude ya got going there, and just to up your sleeves there....and prepare to get your hands dirty, or god cant use you my friend! ok!
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Oh! i know! the bible says, or better yet god said..........question is god is talking, are ya listening? jesus savior said: he that has ears to hear, let him (her) hear!
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Be sure to tell others outside your circle....like our lord & savior said: go into all the world and preach " the gospel" sometimes, that might mean sitting down with a bag lady whos sitting in a mcdonalds counting nickles and pennies just trying to get enough for a hamburger or maybe just a cup of coffee!
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Hmmm! small mistake! what some sins? i don't think our father in heaven considers any sin a small mistake! when i hear s comment like that, i'm like i dont think so! all sin is an abomination to god! you, my friend, can cut it & slice it anyway you want to...bible says: the wrath of god is revealed from heaven agaiinst all the ungodliness of men, just look in the book of romans. the book of romans...sounds like god is not too haply with sin according to the apostle paul if you wanna get technical about it!
  • Peter on Genesis 1:25
    I enjoy all of the discussions and comments that I read; however, I am only interested in some things at this particular time of my life; and i can research them on the internet over time; but I also want Christian views and then also I thought that over time slowly I would enjoy my remaining years reading comments and slowly learning other favourite things as i was familiar a little bit with when i was a child. Once a man, twice a child; and i have person interest in these things as for example I love the 10 commandments but the problem is i get things mixed up a little; and i don't even know the first one and the most i can find is 9. So, That is my next priority and i was wondering if someone could tell me the first commandments; Is it just Thou shall have no other God before me. or do it continue as I think it do. What is the overall Christian view; and if it is one; what would the tenth one be?
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Hmmm! Why all the Big fancy words? Why not a more ELEMENTARY -EXPLANATION...Like just plain old simple English? Not that I don't understand, I'm a very smart person; but in my experience with people, you know, the average person...

    They'd be like in the Dark right about now, with all the fancy words ya got going their and the others too! I'm Basically into STREET-MINISTRY...It's like the Apostle Paul said: I BECOME ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN, THAT I MIGHT WIN SOME! Sometimes you might have to sit in the mud Hole with pig and get Dirty too, if ya know what I mean Figuratively-Speaking, but doesn't mean you have to do what they do...in other words you don't have to eat the SLOP, right?

    What would Jesus do? Would he have a teddy bear in his home and bow down before it to hug it?

    What would God think of my actions? Think and meditate on this for yourselves. Don't tell me what you're thinking.

    I already have my answer. Thank you guys for sharing your feedback.
  • Chris - in Reply on Numbers 35
    Guillermo, Numbers chapter 35 was God's direction to the children of Israel concerning Cities of Refuge, where a murderer, who murdered someone unintentionally, could run to one of those cities for protection & safety, until the matter was dealt with by their justice system. There were to be six cities appointed to serve those types of murderers. But those who wilfully murder someone, the justice to be served was death to the perpetrator; and this could be done even by the avenger (one who might be related to the deceased).

    So, the only way for the murderer who didn't kill wilfully, could get off, was that he would live in one of those Cities of Refuge until the death of the High Priest. He couldn't even go for a walk outside the city walls in case someone came after him. After the death of the High Priest, he could return to his own city, presumably he wouldn't be sought after by an avenger. But if a person wilfully murdered, then the death sentence would be given to him.

    But that was Old Testament Law & practice & by the yearly offering of Sacrifices, atonement was made for the sins of the people. However, no sacrifice in that system, could ever remove a person's sin (e.g. sin of murder) - the sacrificial system was temporary & pointed to the time when God's Sacrifice, Jesus Christ, would come to give His Life on the Cross, to give a perfect & permanent forgiveness of sin. In the OT, those under the sacrificial system, had to express faith in that shedding of blood of the animal & that faith & change of heart carried them through into death, awaiting for Christ's death & resurrection. Then those with real faith & love for God (not as the false religious leaders & faithless Jews), were also raised to Life; all others, as those today who die outside of Christ, are confined to Hades, awaiting their final fate.
  • Mishael on Mean Co-Workers - in Reply
    Ask God to bless your enemies with promotions to other units.

    Do your work as unto Jesus, to bring praise to Him through you.

    Do not engage in any office gossip or slander. Resist the devil and he must Flee!

    This sounds bad, but don't evangelize at work. If you want to talk with someone, swap phone numbers.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Contact 700 Club as they really care about returning service men in a bind.

    1-800-700-7000

    They will pray with you; and ask them to put this mans name on a list until he gets home.

    I agree with you that he will have the Favor of the Lord, for your sake.

    I agree with you that he has traveling mercies at his disposal. May the angel who ministers to the heirs of salvation, assist him.

    You keep these prayers before you every day, till he arrives. God bless him liberally for his service. Amen! Praises to Jesus
  • Mishael on Murder - in Reply on Numbers 35
    Apostle Paul (when his name was Saul): had Jewish ancestry but was working for the Romans, when he assisted with the stoning of Stephen. Heaven opened to receive Stephen's soul right then. After, Paul was on his way to kill some more; Jesus Confronted him and blinded him and spoke to him; person to person on the Damascus Road. He got radically saved that day. Got his sight back a few days later.

    I watch 700 club for news and see former murderers on it often. Which means: if a person comes under conviction about any sin (by the Holy Spirit); if they truly repent of all sins, past and present; turn from their wickedness and turn to Jesus for forgiveness; they can be born again.

    You can't be born again and live sinfully like you once did. Jesus paid in blood for all of our sins. The new life is lived in reverence of His sacrifice. Gods call is to all the World. He loves you, sent his Son to the Cross for you. You give your life to Him and He gives His Life to you.

    We must be born again. He's not ashamed of you; so in return we tell others our testimony of how we came to receive Jesus.

    If you ponder on the act of murder: people do it other ways too. Gossip, slander, back biting and biting back; abortion; character assassination of children and others. It's brutal and God has to judge it.

    We have to repent, confess and get that stuff covered under the Blood of Jesus as soon as it takes to get on our knees.

    The Good News is that Salvation and cleansing is available to all who ask.

    I hope your question is answered.

  • Mishael on Teddy Bears - in Reply
    Yep. My grandsons teddy bear is in his playroom holding baby teddy.

    You're upset, so calm down. Allow rational to prevail.

    I've said it before: ask the Holy Spirit to view your belongings WITH you. If He locks eyes on something or cringes; you can decide how to handle that. He knows what we have.

    I had to BURN astrology books that were 4 inches wide. I wiped out my bookcase so only a Bible was in it. Non-evil books were donated to a library. Acts 19:19

    Idols are mostly, statues of Buddha, zodiac items, violent music, sexual theme things; tee shirts with images that are unholy; let Holy Spirit look at your books and computer.

    I had to toss a piece of driftwood that looked like an evil cow head on Monday.

    Point is that demons use those objects as permission to hang around them. They're in the house till you force them to leave. The Holy Spirit will protect you also, and you have angels that minister to the heirs of salvation. Are you an heir of Salvation?

    We all know what can be considered offensive. As you are able, you'll want to deal with it.

    When we get saved and filled with the Holy Spirit, the demons leave for a time. But they come back periodically to see if you really were serious. We're suppose to clean our spiritual house and furnish it with the Bible inside of us; garnish it with praise and gospel music you like. When I first got saved I listened to Petra, Dion, Darrell Mansfield, Carman (went to my church).

    My life turned from blackness and thoughts of death to, Light, extreme joy, new friendships at church, new music, I mean it was pure joy! It's been 35 years and my relationship with Jesus is the sweetness of my life. Never dull either. I'm still learning just like everyone in here. I started out in evangelism almost immediately. I still love it.

    Try to figure out why you are upset? Is it spiritual or life ganging up on you? Let me know if I can help because I care. I know Jesus cares for you too. No matter what
