  • Vanessa on Isaiah 3
    the politicians here in America should read this and take these words of the Lord and let them soak in before they are brought to ruin , this Nation was blessed by God , a nation that helps all others and we are watching it being destroyed by greed and lawlessness , Christians bow down to the Lord and pray as we watch the spirit of the antichrist working, look to the heavens, praise the Lord our God and cry out in humbleness for healing of this once great nation, we learned what happen to sodom and gomorrah

  • Grace39s Reply Re After-Life Judgements - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Hello Ms White,

    I don't know exactly what happens after a person dies, but while I've examined some NDE stories, I believe what God inspired in the Bible. Yours is an intelligent question. You clearly see that the act of being sent to either Heaven or Hell is in itself a judgement. So true because it's sound logic

    The word "judgement" in Revelation 20 is a direct word-for-word translation of the ancient Greek word for judgement. It's unfortunate for this chapter because the old Greek meaning must've been different. The important key when translating is to translate the meaning - so word-for-word is not always meaningful between different languages of different cultures at different times. (The KJV isn't a literal translation, btw).The meaning of 'judgement' has been lost because no translator has ever been trained, tested &certified by an independent board, the way NAATI translators need to be before translating modern languages for the U.N. So, these so-called translators really didn't know what a dead ancient language sounds like and they can't be 100% sure of it's grammar

    But the true meaning can only be "sentence". Just like modern courts, Judgement Day is Sentencing Day to send body&soul to the 2nd death in that Lake

    Revelation 20:11-15 >The "dead" are souls, in resurrected bodies, who haven't heard of our God and/or did but didn't want to know. It likely isn't believers too because Jesus gave us eternal life (John 3:16) &we do have a renewed spirit because we are born again (1 Peter 1:23), so we can't be called "dead". But we could also be present on this Sentence Dlay just to see it because some religious leaders& scholars now teach a newer idea, since the 19th or 20th C, that there is a separate judgement for believers regarding the quality of our works - that's based simply on 1 or 2 verses about a "seat" of Christ (Romans 14:10). That debate isn't relevant here, but I'll just squeeze in that the text also refers to a judgement of everyone, dead or living (Romans 14:9)
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I know its popular to say that at funerals and to comfort those mourning, but I don't believe it's true. They might be in a 'better place' however, just not heaven, because all must wait for judgment. Also, it says the dead will rise to meet Jesus in the air. I'm sure it will be spiritual bodies, not physical ones that have rotted. It wouldn't make sense otherwise if people went straight to heaven to then go back to earth to an old body just to raise up and meet Jesus in the clouds, just for the ceremony of it. So, both scripture and logic refute that idea. Most people believe this because of Jesus telling the other guy on the cross that he would be in paradise. First, Jesus can pick whomever he wants to have special treatment- it doesn't automatically mean 100% of others will follow suit and ignore the other scripture. Secondly, paradise may not necessarily mean heaven. Paradise could be an intermediary place of rest or waiting. Just some thoughts. No one knows 100% until it happens. We just have scripture and logic.

    Mishael or Anyone - can you comment on Revelation 6:2-8
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 7:2
    Look forward to the Marriage Supper we will attend with Jesus. It will be perfect. Rejoice.

    Go to the blank search box and type in" marriage supper". Read all the scriptures.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Peter 4:15
    If not saved: a hindering, harassing, unclean spirit. Ephesians 6

    Go on YouTube and watch some spiritual warfare videos on how to recognize it;

    How to make the spirits leave.

    We don't want to see devils everywhere: we just need to bind them and cast them out. Unsaved people don't know they are wide open to be afflicted spiritually. Pray in your car privately. The realm of the spiritual is open to only the spiritual.
  • What to expect during the Rapture for Believers who are ready - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Briefly, if we have not been Caught Up in the clouds to meet Jesus yet:

    Our bodies or our ashes, remain in the ground.

    Our spirit and soul ascend to heaven to await "the Rapture", when our bodies will ascend into the clouds to be transformed into our eternal bodies that will never get sick or die. If our earthly bodies were not complete or marred in some way: our new bodies will be perfect; body , soul, spirit.

    All souls are Mine, says God in scripture.

    Once the dead in Christ are rejoined; then those alive on earth will ascend next To meet Jesus and everyone else in the clouds.

    Be watching for Jesus every day.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 12:42
    David was a man after Gods own heart. Even with his frailties, God loved Him. That's how I learned. A servant will attend to every request of His master. He will sit in the watchtower, with the watchman; in the night. He will sit in the dark patiently waiting on what the Lord will speak.

    I cannot describe the rewards of being that kind of servant.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 1
    John: 3:5-18. Being born again.

    The water baptism is an act of obedience. To Wash away our sins and rise into the new life.

    Upon being born again the Holy Spirit is given to minister to the new life in Christ.

    John 16:8-16. This indwelling is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus.

    There's much to learn about Him. 2 Corinthians 12-14 chapters

    Any time anyone needs help understanding scripture: find the scripture and ask the Holy Spirit to explain it.

    May your lives bloom as begin a lifelong relationship with the Son of God By the Study of His Written Word and His Living Spirit.
  • S.Lipton on Matthew 18:20
    Where two means Husband and Wife and three means child or children. So when a family gather for family prayer in the name of Jesus , He is there in the midst of them. In a christian life family prayer is very important like God Trinity which put the family together always. Iff Jesus comes in the midst of us, then Father and Holy spirit also be with us and also angels will join them surely. Our home will become a small Heaven.
  • Grace regarding 1 Peter 12 - in Reply on Colossians 2
    Hello Gar,

    I'm interested to know about which old documents you are referring. What reference or proof do you have that the word "elect" was not in the original Greek? I'm hoping this is true, but it could be too difficult for anyone to show this because of lost scrolls, fake documents accepted as authentic by some, and just too many centuries have passed

    Anyway, I've checked that the ancient Greek word eklektos was translated correctly as the adjective "elect" in the 1611 KJV. Others translated it as "chosen". Note that eklektos is an adjective, a descriptor, a word that is an attribute or characteristic. It is not a noun or a verb or even the past tense of the verbs to choose, to select & to elect as Calvinists have misinterpreted and misunderstood. Example sentence starting with an adj. : (Sam is) Amusing according to Kim's letters

    Eklektos must be translated as a characteristic or quality as it was intended to be descriptive. So, in English the adjectival meaning of 'Elect' is: worthy to be chosen, favourite, preferred, and or "selected for an office, but not yet inducted". Likewise, when "chosen" is used instead of 'elect' as an adjective, chosen means: preferred, to be selective from a number (of available). 'Preferred' would've been the better English translation to stop the arguments

    What's more, "foreknowledge" is "prognosis" in ancient Greek. So that sentence means 'We are preferred by God, according to His ability to see into the future, to be sanctified for obedience'. It's not the Calvinist 'The Chosen Ones according to His will'

    3 different bible versions have all used the same document for 1st Pete1:2

    21st Century KJV

    2 elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father through sanctification of the Spirit, unto...

    New Life Version

  • NEW 2020 on Revelation 6
    Did anyone mentioned the fulfillment of the symbolic horsemen prophecies?

    Briefly, Revelation 6:2 is a symbolic leader of Israel who had gotten a crown (the Palestine's Lands) and is set on conquering the Palestine people

    Revelation 6:4 is a symbolic Palestine leader who is going to get a huge support from the East to make War in Israel

    Revelation 6:5 is a symbolic American leader who is controlling all the world economy and is also protecting the interest of the jews and christens in Israel

    Revelation 6:8 is a symbolic christen leader in Israel who will be persecuted along with many christens.

    Who was the first with this interpretation?

  • Grace - in Reply on 1 Chronicles 16
    Hello Ms Green,

    It is likely that Matthew Henry, of the 18th Century, was vaguely referring to a much later time well after the event at the beginning of chapter 16, which was held in a tent in Jerusalem, also called the City of David. A bit after that event, another shrine/altar (spelt with two A) was constructed in Gibeon (see verse 39). Usually, Reverend Henry gave very good good commentaries, but like most commentators they aren't also the rare few talented writers who understand the effect of words on the audience. Henry confused the readers. Anyway, it's good that you read the commentary before asking your question because correct answers are sometimes in such

  • Mary m white on 1 Timothy 2:4
    The pastor this morning said your spirit and soul go immediately to heaven. What I do not get is.... if spirits go immediately to hell or heaven, then why is there a judgement day? You would already be where you are. The white thrown judgement is after the 1000 year reign, so would God pull em out of hell to send em back to hell after judgement? and bring us from heaven to go back to heaven after the judgement? Please help me to understand what happens after death.

  • Grace - in Reply on John 5:28
    Hello Patrick,

    English words have subtle similarities and or difference. A trait has been scientifically defined and proven for decades as to its accuracy and meaning: traits are any characteristic or discernable feature that is permanent. Examples are: someone born with brown eyes will never have a natural colour change because that is the most dominant eye DNA trait, and another with cheerful outlook all his/her life has an optimistic personality trait in contrast to someone who is optimistic only occasionally. A less permanent or less dominant feature or characteristic is called a "state" quality, feature, or characteristic. The word attribute is not a scientific word, but is just a synonym for the words characteristic, feature or quality (describes someone or something). So, an attribute can be a state or a trait but never both. Examples of attributes: someone born with red hair is classified as red haired when young but will be in either the grey hair or white hair attribute category when old; someone who is energetic usually is throughout life even when retired and slowed down due to aging. So, no the two words are not the same

    Hello Jose,

    Yours is not a foolish question, but complex to many and controversial to fools. It is fools who engender strife and show they are ignorant time and time again

    In verse 28, Jesus was not giving an order but was urging in this context. It is no different to you or someone strongly encouraging a parent to buy this, or choose that, or do something that seems obviously good. This said, it does not negate the concept of the Trinity because it supports the tenet that the son is not the father, but that also the son is equally God as some will argue that Jesus did give an order

    In verse 30, the voice was a witness to the crowd so that they will recall it during or after the crucifixion and be encouraged out of their fear and doubts that it was really the Messiah with them. Therefore, it was a prophecy for their sake
  • Elijah Isaiah Zmuda on Genesis 6
    Scriptural Facts-Genesis 6:4:

    . Heavenly or Fallen Angels can not procreate according to biblical scripture. (Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25; Luke 20:34)

    2. The Nephilium were present before, at the time, and after the sons of God and daughters of man had ***. They can't be their offspring, because they would have to be born first.

    3. Sons of God could mean holy Angels or holy men according to scripture. (Job 1:6; 2:1), (Psalms 82:6, Hosea 1:10; John 10:34-38, Matthew 5:9; Luke 3:38; Romans 8:14)

    * The sons of God are the renown men of old(from seth's lineage)and were tempted by the Nephilium (Fallen angels) to lust the daughters of men(from Cain's lineage).
