  • Jesse - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Christians are not bound by the Jewish dietary laws listed in Leviticus Chapter 11. In Acts 10:9-16, Peter was given a vision, and animals of every kind were shown to him, and a voice from heaven saying rise, kill, and eat. Peter thought it was a trick because he believed he still had to abide by the Jewish law, and he couldn't eat anything "unclean." But the voice in Verse 15 says "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common."

    Now if you stop right there, it gives us a hint as to what this message is all about.

    If God calls something clean, we don't call it unclean! He is not undoing the dietary laws. He's not even talking about animals here. But please know this, what God has cleansed, we do not call common. Believers are not bound by any of the Jewish Laws. We have been set free by Christ.

    However, we have to be careful with that freedom. True freedom is when we are not only free to do things, but free not to do them, if it causes a brother/sister in Christ to stumble.

    God was not embraced that we would mess things up. He knew that we would actually
  • Jesse - in Reply on Galatians 6
    I agree with Bob, it wasn't Herod.

    I would just add that Jesus was brought before Caiaphas to be prosecuted. And once the sentence was passed, He was sent to Pontius Pilate.

    Pilate was the Roman governor and head of the entire area for the Roman government. The Roman government was the only official agency that could pronounce the death sentence on someone.

    The Jews were not allowed to pass the death sentence, especially crucifixion. So they brought Jesus to Pilate so that Pilate could give the death sentence.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Leviticus 23
    Hebrews 4:10 says "For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His." The writer is going back to creation, and he's saying if you surrender to Christ, you will be doing just what God did. You will cease from your own works, and you will enter into God's rest. In 6 days, God created all things. And on the 7th day, He entered into His rest and finished His work. We are still in that 7th day right now called the Time of the Gentiles. What is interesting in the creation account, it says "and it was evening and morning," for each day except the 7th day. But in Genesis Chapter 2, it never says the 7th day ended. It's because it's still today! Many people don't notice that in Genesis Chapter 2, at the end of the 7th day, it doesn't say evening and morning on the 7th day. It's because the Sabbath rest, in creation, parallels and gives the gospel message that Jesus Christ is our Sabbath rest, spiritually. We enter into His rest at our salvation!

    Indeed God has made a way for each of us to prosper despite our condition/s.
  • Shari Martin on James 1
    Why did Jesus change the names of some (Paul and Peter) because they became apostles?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    The Pharisees asked "Are we blind also?" They're expecting a no. They said we are not spiritually blind, we can see. Jesus said, therefore your sin remains because you are blind just like everybody else. Jesus came to give spiritual sight to the spiritual blind. A person who has not received Christ is spiritually blind and spiritually poor! Jesus said "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven." No matter what physical or material condition we are in, a person without Christ is in spiritual poverty. Our spirit is dead in trespasses and sin. That's why when a person is born of the Spirit of Christ, their spirit is made alive, and they are raised from the spiritual dead and are no longer spiritually blind. Jesus is saying that because you say you can see, and that you do not need to be healed, you're still in your sin. But if you can see that you are spiritually blind, and that your sin has cut you off from a relationship with God, Jesus said He can heal that!
  • Jeju 20 - in Reply on Isaiah 1:3
    I only knew it when the church doors closed and our worship stopped and Our daily routine changed

    How grateful the Lord is..

    Only after everything stopped

    looking back on our lives....

    The Church, God's home, is full of darkness

    Trying to fill our own belly

    The proud and those who seek to rise stand

    on the pulpit and proclaim the word of God. ,

    These above words from Jeju, unknown person
  • Adam - in Reply on Leviticus 23
    The 7th day of the week, or Saturday, is which is when God rested and when Sabbath is. In many languages Sunday - Friday are named after planets, but Saturday is named after the Sabbath, so Italian, Spanish, etc call it Sabado which literally means the Sabbath.
  • David Hamilton on Isaiah 49
    Definitely referring to Christians. It's addressed to the whole world, not Israel specifically as Isaiah 48 is addressed. God gives many promises to the gentiles in this passage, to the point that Zion (a reference to Israel) cries out, "You've forgotten us!" God uses comforting language after Zion's concern is expressed. It reminds me of the prodigal son's brother who can't believe how well his father is treating the prodigal; but the father comforts and reminds him that he still has an inheritance. I read that this is the regathering of Israel in a commentary, but I don't see that anywhere in this passage. A parallel passage is in Revelation 7:15-16; and it's clear that this is a reference to people of all nations, tribes, tongues, people, etc...
  • Nadine thedford on 1 Corinthians 1:1
    is Jesus our brother
  • Brianna vs 15 on Isaiah 29:12
    Vs. 15 shows that nothing can be hid from God. Thinking back on so many people that have had plans schemed against them, it is comforting to know that God can bring justice. Justice doesn't always come by human sources. People who scheme evil in the dark should know that what comes around goes around.
  • Brianna vs 7 on Hebrews 5
    Jesus set the pattern for us in learning how to endure. In vs. 7 Jesus relied on his heavenly father " with strong crying & tears" to help him endure his death on a torture stake. Jesus never broke his integrity to his father Jehovah, and the results" He was heard". So many of us are experiencing many trials right now as a result of the global pandemic 2020. It may feel like we are enduring a torture stake of our own. However, let us call out to God as Jesus did, in prayer. With tears and supplication if need be. If we remain loyal to God in word and deed, he will hear our cries for help just as he heard Jesus. Stay strong everybody!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Galatians 6
    Laura per the Bible Herod did not have Jesus killed. Pilate tried to release Jesus.

    John 19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar. (Pilate was threatened with treason if he let Jesus go free)

    Paul in 1 Thessalonians 2:14 -16 - For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, EVEN AS THEY HAVE OF THE JEWS: WHO BOTH KILLED THE LORD JESUS, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and THEY PLEASE NOT GOD, and are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: FOR THE WRATH IS COME UPON THEM TO THE UTTERMOST.

    I'm reading John and in reading chapter 9 the last verse in that chapter is very confusing to me. Can you explain that one to me? Thank you.

  • Clementine Boddie on Ecclesiastes 3:8
    what specifically is Solomon referring to when he says," a time to hate." We are studying Ecclesiastes and would like to know in what context he is using this. Are we to hate something, someone, etc!
  • T Nelson on Psalms 37
    I suspect a betrayal is brewing against me on my job. Over the last couple weeks, this suspicion has continuously come to me, but the Lord brought this Psalm to mind, and it gave me peace. He also reminded me that no weapon formed against me shall prosper; therefore, I rest in his love, protection, and peace, and I know that He will cover me and keep me safe from the evildoers and their plans.
  • D W L on Luke 18
    Verse 42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath SAVED thee.--How many did Jesus save while on earth (not sure) but many. -- Matthew 9:6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

    John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. -17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
  • Thelma Denson on 1 Peter 2
    God want us to serve him and do good towards other's.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Sonia, I can't find your original post now; the way the thread system works in KJB online, is peculiar. I think Mishael has sent you a reply to the Rapture, so will leave off for now. Apologies, if Genesis 1:27 was not your subject. Blessings.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Peter 2
    John, thanks for your encouraging comments. It's wonderful that you & the Fellowship are still able to meet is some form & enjoy this new experience, albeit somewhat limiting. I think of the early Church as they too met as a small group & generally hidden as their persecutors hunted for their blood. I guess, this virus is a type, both seeking out destruction & death, but for the believer our confidence & hope is ever centred on the Lord of Glory. The Lord bless you & the Church family there in Milwaukee.
