  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 91
    I have peace now. It's hard to see all your prayers go with them. Harder still to see someone you love be in pain and terror, drowning. Still, I wouldn't have left that bedside unless the Lord had not told me what He did. Our prayers matter. They are with their Beloved.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Mark 10:9
    If you live in the USA, you can google your State's laws on it. Some states recognize it;

    Others do not. It can't be treated as divorce until someone moves out of the house.

    Since God created the first marriage with Adam and Eve, we have to observe His requirements to put away a "spouse".

    1 Corinthians 7-9; Genesis 38:8;

    Deu. 24:2-5, Hebrews 13:4; Jeremiah 3:14

    My comment here, is if God can say 'I'm married to you'..then marriage (a covenant) between two parties is serious and binding. If you bend the rules because society says you can doesn't mean it's the best choice.

    I say that because of how it hurts children to live the impermanence of life without one parent. I overheard one day a group of children call themselves, "divorced" kids. Five of them said, I'm divorced, and 1 kid said my parents are married. The 5 told him he was lucky.

    Talk it over with your Pastor or the Pastors wife.

    Before He was crucified, Jesus did miracles so people would believe He was who He said He was. After the resurrection Jesus was a walking miracle. There was nothing left for Him to prove. Now the miracles would be done by His followers through the Holy Spirit.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on John 5:4
    Look into the life of Constantine Simonides, he was likely the greatest forger than ever lived, and he claimed he was the one who forged the SINacticus manuscripts which do not match the Vatican manuscripts. It is full of corrections and I would never trust it for anything.

    The Vaticanus (look at the last 4 letters) are missing the entire book of revelation. National Geographic has an article on why many scholars believe at least 5 of the dead sea scrolls are modern forgeries that the museum paid millions for.

    SInacticus and Vaticanus do not match each other. I spent a year on this subject in Bible college on the graduate level.

    Should we trust the Vatican manuscripts? You know the group that burned people at the stake for daring to have a Bible? William Tyndale comes to mind.

    Just trust the scholars of the King James who knew the languages and what manuscripts to use.

    The Majority text of the Greek manuscripts are reliable and match each other. God preserved his word.
  • James brooks on Ephesians 3
    There is nothing in the New Testament commanding a follower of Christ to tithe;period. Stop lying on GOD and telling people that tithing and giving an offering is the same thing.If you feed people things that the Bible does not say.that,s antichrist speaking.'God says H e loves a cheerful giver,not a cheerful tither. Revelation 22:18&19,2 Timothy 4:1-3.All scripture is given by inspiration of GOD;not man.when I think about tithing i think about Exodus 35and36 when the people were told to stop bringing.GOD,s people will give without being told.GOD Bless.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Acts 22
    (Part 4)

    It doesn't say she was teaching, does it? Is it possible that she was receiving the teaching? That would make more sense to me, because if it were her doing the teaching, why after years go by would she be perplexed by seeming contradictions? Do you honestly believe that she was doing the teaching and becoming perplexed at her own contradictions? I think not! She says at age 37, her spiritual eyes were opened when she put her life into God's Hands." Praise the Lord for that! It sounds to me that she was the recipient of the teaching, not the teacher herself, and had enough of the contradicting messages that she was being taught. How about that for a twist!

    Before you come back and attack me, I hope you can please see what you are doing. It's definitely not edification.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Acts 22
    (Part 3)

    The bible does not tell us everything about the early church. There are things we can't find in scripture. It doesn't cover all of early church history. Have you ever gone outside the bible to look something up?

    Lastly, since I have a knack for "twisting," here's a twist for you. Did you give much thought to Patricia's post before you went on the attack and accused her of teaching in the church? Apparently not, for it is easy to see that she was not the teacher, but the pupil. Her opening statement would tell me that she couldn't have been the one doing the teaching. I never accused her of teaching, you did!

    Look at what she said in her opening remarks and think about it. She says "Years of teaching Sunday morning and afternoon and evening had me perplexed by seeming contradictions. At age 37 my spiritual eyes were opened when I put my life into God's Hands."

    One more to follow.

    You throw out the word feminism a lot, and I can't help but envision in my mind the entry door to your church having a sign posted saying "Women, keep your traps shut beyond this point."

    Am I still "twisting" something here? If so, please point it out to me. Since you're that guy who's been through the bible "MANY" times as you say, you probably would be the most qualified to explain it. Edify me, don't tear me down!

    You ask me where in the Bible does it say that in the early church men sat on one side and women on the other? You are right, it doesn't say that. I guess it wouldn't be twisting scripture if I read it elsewhere, so I'm safe there. And if you want an answer to that question, you can research it yourself. A man of your knowledge probably doesn't need my help finding the answer. Not everything we say has to be proven from the bible, unless of course it is the doctrine contained within.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Acts 22
    Charles, you went from calling me a liar to telling me I'm twisting scripture to make it say what I want? First of all, I'll be the first to admit that I can be wrong. My strongest point as a believer is to confess my spiritual stupidity before God and confess to Him that I don't know. My confession to Christ is that I'm just a dumb sheep in constant need of a shepherd. So, can I be wrong, yup!

    You sir on the other hand would probably be pained to admit that you could be wrong. You speak about edification, but how is it edifying to anyone when your words seem so harsh. How does that build someone up?

    I know what Paul said. I've read it. Women are not to pastor in the church, pretty simple! Being silent does not mean they can't speak at all. They just can't teach the men or be put in a position of authority over the men in the church.

    Jesus is God, but he is praying to God the Father, his Father in heaven, to help him in his agonies
  • David Orren - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    The Roman Emperor Constantine reinvented Christianity in order to save the Roman Empire form hostile tribes. His idea was to create a unifying religion and he saw Christianity as that religion that he could identify with. It was under Constantine that the testaments were selected and the history of Jesus was rewritten. They scrubbed out most of the testaments which conflicted with the story they wanted to portray. What we call the 'word of God' is in fact the result of realpolitik by Rome to save itself from disintegration. It is even doubtful if Constantine truthfully converted. As Christianity turned into an institution the church repressed anyone who questioned its contents, killing any one who translated it to mean something different. What eventually got translated into the KJB is just what the Roman Emperor decided was OK to write about. We do not have easy access to the much greater amount of remaining material on the real life of Jesus which is locked up in the Vatican vaults.
  • Lisa M - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Rosanna, the KJV is changing supernaturally: however, I have come to realize that the enemy is trying to change our focus from the Word of God. We are too late in the game to be distracted from the word. All it is doing is keeping me from really digging into his word and seeking Him for who He is. We need our relationship with the Lord to be strong and unwavering. The only way it is going to get that way is if we focus on Him and His word and not over these things. Pray the Lord will bring back to memory what the original meaning is and continue on growing in the knowledge of Him. That is all that matters now in these last days. God bless you.
  • Maryann on Revelation 2:10
    I have a question in these end time's how are we to fight back is it only spiritually or physically .. when martial law comes to take us out our homes are we to fight back ? And are we to forgive them as they hurt us like Jesus did on the cross? things are happening so fast and i feel it's to late for me to learn ? how are we to handle or except it when your being taking away for them to kill God's children? certain things i'm not understanding can be frustrating .. are we to forgive those that are hurting us or wanting to kill us ..

    Chris, I want to thank you again. Keep it up.
  • Nicole on Tobit 6
    I think as a non believer of the kjv , these are important to read because I know the kjv doesn't make sense as a whole. It's to contradiction. Yet I searched for more and between these and the lost books, I was able to find god again however when I read some comments from so called Christians, my stomach turns and I think it's a waste of time yet again. I encourage others to read the nag hammadi library in addition then make your own decisions

  • Fred scanlan on Nahum 1
    How clear is the words from u all. Like refreshing water that flows from his sanctuary. Your words are a reflection of his prophecy spoken by some of you a year ago. Now you are clean through the word I have spoken unto you.These words from Christ Himself. His glory realized through His word. Here is your strength in a time of need. Be not afraid ,there is no one like our God! Be not afraid ,go in peace in the knowledge that he is our salvation even unto life eternal."Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof"." But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you". He is our protector,from our enemies. He loves us!
  • Bibi russell on Mark 10:9
    someone living common-in-law and 2 children from the relationship and has not actually made marriage vows is it still considered what God has joined together.? Now is the woman free to leave her partner and go with another man? Is the new man breaking up what God put together?
  • Alex on Luke 17
    The Kingdom of God is gonna come from within us simply b/c Jesus is gona go forth and sow his precious seed in our hearts,The son of man is gonna come via a seed which is the WORD THAT NEW COVENANT ( THE BOOK ) in the right hand of the father. The contents of that book are LIVING WORDS which are the Seeds of God,My words are spirit and life like God is spirit n life. If ya can hear it the book was written with his own blood ,no man cd look on it,but the babes and sucklings that are gonna result from the heavenly seeds,th book,the Children of PROMISE that Are gonna be born in US,Thats y th new birth is so important.Unless the lord of sabboah had left us a seed etc.Being bornagain of an incorruptible seed, the Words of that book ( his breath etc ) Zech refers to him as our 1st born ,our only son.Smite the Shephard n th sheep will be scattered then i will turn my Hand to the LIL ONES ( our 1st born our only son ) which is th H.G. the Son of MAN MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD VIA TH WORDS O BOOK.

    Jesus is coming soon! He is Lord and God who will someday come to judge the living and the dead.
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    Jesse, please don't twist the Scripture to make it say what ya want it to say. Paul told Christian that he suffers not a woman to teach, but to be in silence. It is against God's law/order for a woman to speak in church. There is no other scripture changing that truth. So where in the Bible does it say that in the early church men sat on one side and women on the other? It doesn't and you have absolutely zero proof that it happened that way. That is a feministic view to twist the Word to make it say what they want it to say.
  • Carl - in Reply on Ezekiel 1
    Hi Luci,

    My heart goes out to you. I don't have any answers for you, but I feel with you. Relationships can be so difficult, especially within family, and when you have no idea why. It sounds like you only meant well, so I'm sorry it went the way it did. 1 Peter 2:20 is a real comfort: "For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God." When you suffer after doing well, and take it patiently, God notices and will give you His grace and power to carry on! I will pray for you and your family. He only wants the best for you!
  • Scott Marino - in Reply on John 5:4
    Hello Bob; This in depth studying of Biblical text is challenging. I am studying various aspects of context in this case. I am thinking that there was an event as described in verse four, and it was recorded. Why is it not recorded in earlier texts? Is a good question. Hopefully, the reason(s) are human involvement without satanic influence.
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    Bob, Yes sir, sure did. Deborah was used by the Lord when there were no stand up men left in Israel. An exception to God's Law order. But there are PLENTY of God fearing MEN left in the world today. But there are thousands of wicked women disobeying God preaching and teaching, when they ought not (if these women are saved at all).

    Timothy learned as a child from his mother and grandmother AT HOME, just like I did, At HOME.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Mishael, you too have experienced great sadness & loss, but the presence of the Lord has been very real & overwhelming to you. I'm sure that your ministry & testimony is so much stronger & precious to those brought to receive it, as from the Lord. I was interested in reading about what took place just prior to your Father's departure. When I lost my Mum in '69 to cancer, my Dad was with her in hospital; I wasn't there. But he related to me that she was in great pain in those final moments & had laboured breathing. He felt in his spirit that her end was very near, so he asked the Lord to spare her more pain & to take her to Himself. She closed her eyes at that very moment & entered into Christ's Presence. Yes, we all grieve when we lose someone so precious, but as believers, we experience something that no one else does: at the moment when our time on Earth is done, all of Heaven is involved in the ushering away of the loved one & resultant healing to those left behind. Psalms 116:15.
  • Fern on Psalms 27
    Thanks, reading these words always gives me inspiration and hope.
  • Alex on Matthew 24:23
    IMO just me. This great abomination of Desolation is modern day Christianity,All the churches are desolate even the big mega churches are desolate Not a sign of Christ Jesus. And Jesus said it was gonna be a Time of darkness when no man can work.The days are coming when the bridegroom will be taken away then shall you fast in those days,days are plural 2 days 2000 yrs no Christ Jesus but we look for him to come again soon but don't look for him in th Churches,look for him to come within you via a birth Thats y he always refers to himself as the SON OF MAN, 27 TIMES THE PROPHETS SAW THE WORLD IN TRAVAIL N BIRTH PAINS we are gonna birth a baby Christ within our hearts and minds that Child is the H.G. TH CHILD of PROMISE,I will give them a new heart and a new spirit. He wants to be BORN in US sinners He is truly th SON OF MAN, thats y th sower wants to sow his precious seed in our hearts,The kingdom of God is gonna be BORN in US,The most hi GOD does not dwell in temples made with hands.
