  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 15:22
    Wanda, as you have no doubt read Isaiah from the first chapter, you would have read about the many things that God had accused Judah & Jerusalem about. Their idolatry, meaningless sacrifices, dependence on material wealth, sinning as Sodom did & many more: all these brought on the Anger of the Lord. And their women also became "haughty & behaved in an alluring way" & God would change all that & make them foul. And likewise, the men would suffer loss of life through battle & they together would all become desolate.

    So the wearing of jewellery was synonymous to their demeanour which resembled those of the heathen, that which promoted their outward beauty rather than what was becoming of a woman of God (as Mishael well pointed out). The men of course, weren't into wearing jewellery, as it is done these days, but they would suffer under the hand of their enemies. Is then the wearing of jewellery wrong? We must each one decide this in the light of the Scriptures & what our intentions are for wearing them. Some Fellowships ban or strongly advocate against wearing of jewellery, yet some of those same women will present themselves quite differently outside the 'Christian circle'. We have to be convinced in our own hearts about this matter, maybe done for the enhancing our appearance without appearing ostentatious & taking away from a woman's inner beauty.
  • Paul O on Daniel 7
    A question for anyone .... jesus was deemed as the perfect sacrifice, without spot or blemish, without sin and as the son of the almighty god, was a perfect man.

    the night before his crucifixion, jesus and a select few disciples went to the garden of gethsemane. the account in luke ..... indicates.... that jesus sweated blood. no other gospel says anything like that. before i go any further.... i want to make myself very clear. my lord and savior was without spot and an absolute perfect sacrifice.

    why would my lord and redeemer.....the perfect sacrifice, have a medical condition which would allow him to sweat blood.

    i have the king james bible... the words say ... like large drops of blood.... why do many many, preachers and pastors insist on bestowing the perfect sacrifice with an affliction that would render my lord and savoir an imperfect man with flaws.

    not only that ..... why does no one mention the blood which would have been running down the lords face and covering his cloths, and dripping off his hair......

    i do not believe......for 1 second... jesus had a flaw, or sweated blood.... feel free to gasp in shock and hate my words....but...read the word of the lord... and remember, we should question everything....
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    I was an astrologer many years. I know a lot about demons since I was born again and washed in the blood of Jesus Christ, 35 years ago.

    They don't like to let you go.
  • Mishael on signs of the times - in Reply on Luke 21
    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 & 5:2, 4

    2nd Peter 3:12-14

    For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    Comment: we are waiting for the fullness of the Gentiles to be completed. Be paitient and be LOOKING for Jesus.

    Matthew 24 explains we're going to see and go through some: signs of the times.

    We're seeing it now so don't think it's a long process.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 25
    Eunice, that's a great Psalm to meditate on. My favourite verses there are verses 4 & 5. The words: show me, teach me, lead me, all point to our attitude before Him: "on Thee do I wait ALL the day". It is in that place of humility, submission & longing for His Word to come to us, that we can experience the beauty of His Presence & the Power of His Word. The Lord bless you & refresh your spirit as you feed on Him.

    Leigh;These six(6)things doth the LORD hate:yea,seven(7) are an abomination unto Him:A proud look,a lying

    tongue,and hands that shed innocent blood,an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations,feet that be swift in running to mischief.He hates a froward mouth.
  • Mishael on Healing Fighting Satan on Psalms 70
    Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

    The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

    The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

    I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

    Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?

    You know, Jesus stands at your door knocking, for you to let him in your whole life. Receive him as your personal Savior.

    Open the door of your heart and rededicate your life and future to Him.

    When he came to earth as the Lamb of God, he stepped out of his role of equal person to the Godhead to become the Son of Man. He set his power aside so he could win souls to God; teach His disciples (students) to carry on the faith after He went to the Cross to be crucified for OUR SINS.

    I ask myself daily, what have I done today to tell others about Jesus, and help out my fellow man?

    Christianity isn't about getting Saved and doing nothing after that. Our lives should change from ME, to helping where we can to comfort others and maybe lead them to Jesus too. Your testimony is very valuable to someone who knows nothing about it.

    Just be yourself. True Humility, like Jesus has, is doing for others what they can't do alone.

    I want everyone to go on YouTube and watch Christian videos on Spiritual Warfare. Our near future is going to be full of it. We have to learn about a Real Devil that has a will and uses it to hurt, or even kill people.

    Satan is here to Steal, Kill, and Destroy. He steals our peace, safety our jobs; he kills our feelings till we're so depressed we can't leave the house; he'll destroy anything we hold dear; it's easy for him to destroy people with drugs, sex and alcohol. He could care less if you're suffering.

    Fight Back now!
  • Rosa Borchert on Psalms 37
    God is unfailing and just, all we need to do is to believe in him and leave our worries in his hands. He will take care of our needs and will not leave us at the mercy of the wicked. The wicked will have their day of judgement, and judgement belongs to God, and only God.
  • James brooks on Malachi 3:10
    someone asked for Luke 21:12 be explained;I think that verse 12 is a carry over from verse 11 where Jesus was describing events immediately preceding the end of the age.Verse 12 begins with,But before all these things.....I believe that verses 12 to 24 describes the period between the time of the discourse and future Tribulation Period.His Disciples would be arrested,persecuted,tried before religious and civil powers,and imprisoned.

    ,It could have felt like failure and tragedy to the Disciples,but GOD overruled it to make it a testimony for His glory.They did not have to prepare their defense in advance.In their hour of crisis they were not to worry about what to say,because GOD said:settle it in your minds not to meditate before hand how to answer,for I give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict.I believe that when that day if it ever appears in our Christian lives,we will stand fast in our faith and never deny,our belief in GOD,because He will give us what we will say.But as far as the rapture,verse 12 is not speaking of this.Read verses 6 thru 11 you will understand what verse 12 is saying.

  • Mishael on Psalms 70
    Pray these scriptures out loud, until you know them by heart.

    Luke 6:18

    as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed.

    Luke 9:11

    But when the multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing.

    John 8:36

    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    Acts 5:16

    Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.

    Romans 8:11

    But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

    Romans 8:2

    For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

    2 Corinthians 4:10-11

    always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

    Philippians 4:7

    And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

    James 5:13-15

    Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

    1 Thessalonians 5:23

    Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
  • Mishael on Psalms 70
    Isaiah 41:10

    "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
  • I R GATPHOH on 2 Corinthians 9
    Note that God's grace is here tied to an abundance of good works. And note as well, God is able. Walking by the grace of God, living it out day-by-day, hinges on the ability of God. A life of good works is not dependant upon our strength, our power, or our resolve. It hinges on His ability alone. And God is able.
  • Angel Lee on 1 Timothy 4
    are the nephilim still in this world? I have found nothing that tells me they are gone, or where they have gone to.

    Psalms 25 has been a restoration for my weary soul. Praise God. It's like Fountain filled with healing water. Which never run dry.my fellow brothers and sisters I do encourage all to KEEP feeding on the words of God.its the only pathway to a peaceful and holy life in the sight of God.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    Mark Chapter 4

    And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

    And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

    And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?!!

    And he (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

    You should ask as they did; what manner of man is this!! He is the son of God!

    We should hide in his presence when it's stormy all around us. Stay with Jesus, in His Word. Keep your eyes on Him. If you haven't done it yet: repent of your sins and pray for Jesus to come make His home in your heart. Receive the Holy Spirit.
  • Ben Pulliam on Job 22
    Job 22:14, God walks on the circuit of Heaven. The heaven has a circuit which contains the sun, moon, and stars. They all move circuiting around the star "Polaris."
  • Mishael - in Reply on 2 Esdras 11
    If it was me, I'd go to Walmart and get a King James or New King James Bible to study with. Get one with a concordance in the back. Center of the page columns. It's the best. When you're seriously studying scripture, those are the best to get.

    You can keep an eye out at Goodwill and adopt a Bible someone donated. I find Bibles there.

    I have like 8 Bibles I've marked up so much they're hard to read. I'm going to go leave them on picnic tables.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Luke 15:22
    1 Timothy 2:9-10

    In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; but which becometh women professing godliness WITH good works.

    Deuteronomy 22:5

    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.

    We're not under the Law as Christians, but I would venture that other people make assumptions about you based on appearance. The key word is Modest.

    Same goes for body piercings and tattoos. There's a danger of infections; illness from dirty equipment.
  • Mishael on Civil Law and Gods Law - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Hebrews 13:17

    Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

    See 1 Corinthians 12:28 also.

    The Laws of this Country forbid Polygamy.

    It's not necessary to dispute it. You can Google the penalties yourself.

    If we speed in our car; we get a ticket. ETC

    Civil Law is to be obeyed, as much as the Ten Commandments God have to us.

  • Anne Anglin on Psalms 139
    On Psalms 139......Good to know that Our God Almighty knew us that very second we're planted in our Mothers belly.

    He's a seeing God We cannot hide from Him as He God created the world n Everything in tin it was All good

    I feel like were in a scenario where air is being pumped in a balloon. and now were just waiting for it too pop.
  • Mishael on a Happier Home - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Born again is as rebirth. It means both again. I prefer how Jesus explains it.

    In John 3, Jesus is telling Nicodemus how to be born again, spiritually. When he speaks about the wind, He is describing the Holy Spirit.

    We can pray for the Holy Spirit to visit our loved ones, convict them of sin and woo them to salvation. Pray and ask; then thank God for the answer. Having done all: to stand in FAITH.... not doubt. You gotta beat the devils off of family so they can respond to offered salvation.

    An angel tells Daniel, that Michael the Archangel had to fight against a demon prince to help this messenger get to Daniel.

    Daniel chapter 10:10-21.

    What you pray for, give thanks daily. Keep loved ones covered in prayers forbidding demonic influence.

    And nope, we don't get to order Michael around. We can ask God to give us angelic assistance. You already have a ministering angel.

    Here is a tip: when someone speaks forth the scriptures in the home; sings praises to God or talks what Jesus did today... angels hear it and record It in the Book of Remembrance . Malachi 3:16

    It's inspiring!

    "Then they that feared (respect & honor) the Lord spoke often one to another, and the Lord HEARKENED, and HEARD it, and a book of Remembrance was written BEFORE HIM, for them that feared the Lord, and thought upon His Name!

    So see, we can change the whole atmosphere in our homes! No swearing, no yelling insults and retorts; no gossip about others. Converse reverently about Jesus and you will have angels over at your place every day! How hard is that?

    If they hear you thanking the Lord for healing... the oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness, salvation of loved ones etc...

    Your prayer and worship songs are being fast tracked right up front of Gods throne!!!

    Because Jesus sits at the right hand of God Almighty God of all there is! Jesus hears.

    Turn off Metallica and turn on Dion's Kingdom in the Streets cd. What's better than a happier home?
