  • Gloria on 1 Corinthians 12
    Everyone is important in the body of Christ just like the real body. No one should get stuck on a title. I am curious why the African-American church clamor for titles of Apostles, Bishops and Prophets more than other denominations. True men and women would be humble like those in the bible. Sometimes people can be become too deep waiting con false prophecy. We need to go back to the old path of charity and love for each other which is the bestgift. People are searching for genuine love and relationships rather than just cold revelations. Amen. Let's be real. With loving kindness have I drawn thee. Showing compassion first draws people over trying to vague prophecies.

    Carlos, you will have read the account of the children of Israel who left the bondage of Egypt & went on their long journey to the Land of Promise. So they were about to capture & enter the Land of Canaan, as God had promised that land to them to be theirs throughout their generations. However, on their approach into the land which meant crossing the Jordan River, two tribes of Israel (Reuben & Gad) asked permission from Moses that they could establish themselves on the east side of the Jordan & not on the west side as was directed by the Lord. You can read a part of this occurrence in Numbers chapter 32.

    Even though the half tribe of Manasseh was not mentioned in wanting to also live on the east side of the Jordan, it is understood that they did want to, as they also, with Reuben & Gad, received their portion of land. However, they could only possess that land if they went over the Jordan to fight alongside their brethren so that the land could be captured. They could then afterwards return east wards to secure & dwell in their land.

    As to why 'the half tribe of Manasseh': the tribe of Joseph was split into two smaller tribes: his two sons, Ephraim & Manasseh. Ephraim & half of Manasseh went with the larger group of tribes to the west of the Jordan River while one half of Manasseh decided to stay back on the east side with Reuben & Gad & settle there.

    How do you understand Luke 16:19-31? Some believe it to be another parable of Jesus, but the fact that Jesus uses first names seems to indicate that Jesus was speaking of real people in real situations.

    And Paul also speaks in 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 of the fact that while he is in the body (alive on Earth) he is not in God's Presence. But if he is absent in the body (no longer alive on Earth), then he is in God's Presence. Again, some would say that there is a 'gap' between death & man's spirit going to be with the Lord or to Hell but I can't grasp this interpretation, given Paul's inference of a 'no gap' declaration.

    We also see 1 Peter 3:18-20, where "Jesus was quickened by the Spirit (after His Crucifixion) & by the Spirit visited those other spirits held captive in prison, those who were disobedient from Noah's days. The point here is not who those spirits were but that they were held captive, whether in a state of suffering or in transition to another state of punishment.

    What should we make of such indicators of one's spirit (& soul) departing at death to a place of rest or torment?

  • Chapter 2 verse 3

    Let no man DECEIVE you by any means ; for that day will not come , except there come a falling away first , and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition .

    Before the coming of the Lord the Antichrist must come first .

    The Pretrib heresy says it's going to happen next , they have been saying this for almost 200 years when it began .

    The Christians at the time of this new heresy rejected it . George Muller of Bristol was one and a giant in his time .

    The doctrine of the rapture also reshaped prophecy. In many big ways .

    That's adding to the word of God .

    Revelation 22v 19 serious consequences for doing this .

    We are in the falling away it's plain to see to them that have eyes to see . And know the Bible .

    Men will be very corrupt by time the Antichrist himself comes on the scene , and they will worship him too ! Amazing how the spirit of anti christ works in the children of disobedience, unbelief of the truth as well as indifference or rebellion all are disobedience.

    But God is faithful to every generation and will have grace upon the faithful and deliver them from everything coming . We are not appointed unto wrath .
  • Ian on Psalms 119:18
    Why does God choose to open the eyes of some to saving truth yet not to others
  • What's the context of these chapter ? It's the loud coming of the Lord !

    Verse 15

    Verse 16

    Where in the world do these false teachers think it's a secret silent rapture ? Don't buy their spirit of Antichrist!
  • It's like the trinity doctrine it's contrived but not only is the word not in the Bible neither is the event , just like the triune god is not in the Bible either.

    Jess is said beware many come in my name saying I AM Christ and the end draweth near , like the imment rapture for the last 200 years and date setters all wrong !
  • Memories that live on - in Reply on Genesis 1
    The house that I was born again in was really special to me (if you've seen any of my testimonies).

    A friend anointed it for me. It was like church every day inside those walls. Lots of home meetings, breaking bread together. My Pastor came to many of those as we were all street evangelists.

    I gave the house to God before I moved. I was amazed when my realtor told me that a Pastor and his family had bought the house. They said the "atmosphere" inside the house is what sold them on it. That house had the wind of the Holy Spirit blow through it. I will never forget that.

    I took a picture of a bookcase that had housed all my astrology books... the photo showed an empty bookcase except for 2 Bibles and children's books. Knowing Jesus changes your life forever.

  • William C King - in Reply on Revelation 1
    It is interesting that you say you do not see "red or blue," yet you're promoting ACLJ, which is politically conservative (Republican). I am a Republican, and also a devote follower of the Word of God. If we lived in a perfect world, where one could trust one another to always do what's right, we could dissolve all lines/boundaries. However, there is a great divide in our Nation, and the chasm grows deeper and wider with each passing day. Christians/Christianity is/are being openly attacked. Our faith and belief is frowned upon by the overall majority of citizens. If we were to analyze the platforms of the Democratic party; their actions and comments, we would see they are illogical; to such an extent as to make one question their sanity. I firmly believe the Great Deceiver has them in their grasp, controlling their actions and comments. One the other hand, some of the actions and comments of our Republican officials also cause concern. Politics and religion are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum. Yes, our Nation was founded on the principles of religion, but politics is the Devil's my opinion. These are perilous times. We must vote as our conscience dictates, while simultaneously praying our Lord will deliver us. May God bless you.
  • Fred e Scanlan - in Reply on Genesis 1
    The power of prayer is the real weapon that we have. Prayer , fasting, unto Jesus Christ , giving him all power both in heaven and earth. Defeating the power of Satan . Proclaiming Christ in the presence of all his holy angels!
  • Fred e Scanlan - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Your home will become the house of prayer! You will have power from on high. You may even have a dragon come around looking for that last prayer that went out! Satan does not like portals of prayer ,it throws him off. Remember to anoint your door posts front and back.
  • Anointing Oil - in Reply on Genesis 1
    In Exodus, 30:23, God directed Moses to make a holy anointing oil composed of myrrh, sweet cinnamon, Kaneh-bosem, cassia, and olive oil. "And you shall make of these a sacred anointing oil blended as by the perfumer; it shall be a holy anointing oil.

  • WHO IS IN HELL - in Reply on Genesis 5
    The Bible teaches that the WICKED DEAD are awaiting the Great White Throne Judgement. Everyone has to see their deeds and be judged. Hell is for those that Reject Gods plan of Salvation totally.

    Nobody is burning in Hell right now. Those who have ever lived and died are asleep in the grave waiting for the return of Christ and the resurrection. Notice that the Apostle Paul does not describe dead Christians as being active or alive in heaven.

    They are asleep-dead-until they are resurrected at Christ's second coming. See 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.

    Paul used sleep as a metaphor for death. Yet, from an early age, most of us have been taught that sinners who died were right now being tormented in eternal hellfire. Who's right? Paul or your Sunday School teacher? The Bible says Paul got it right!

    But what about Revelation 20:10? Many use this scripture to "prove" that at least two human beings-the "Beast" (Antichrist) and the "False Prophet"-will be tormented eternally in Hell. So let's take a closer look:

    "The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the Beast, and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever" (Revelation 20:10).

    Look closely at that verse. Do you notice that one word-are-is in italics? That means it isn't part of the Greek text, but was added by translators trying to "make clear" what's in the verse. The problem is, the translators made it clearly wrong!

    Satan the Devil will go to the same destination as the Beast and the False Prophet but he will go there as a spirit-being, and will be there long after the Beast and False Prophet-like other unrepentant sinners (Revelation 19:20; 20:15) have been burned up and destroyed (Matthew 25:41).

    Some people alive have seen visions of hell.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 4:17
    The King James Bible calls it: caught up to meet Jesus in the clouds.

    The Day of the Lord.

    Use your center of each page reference columns (little abc notes) in the scriptures. Those will send you to other Like scriptures.

    There are mentions in the Old and New Testament.

    The Rapture - the raising of the Church into heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:17): is the next event on the prophetic calendar. The Rapture is when Christ comes back and takes every Christian that is still on this earth and resurrects all of those who have died and takes them to heaven with Him. In 1 Thessalonians 5:1-8, Paul expresses that the Lord's return will be like a thief in the night. No one knows the date or time. However, there are several signs of the End Times that we can all be aware of. Events such as earthquakes and diseases, war and dispute among nations, and persecution against Christians are all signs leading to the Rapture.


    Matthew chapter 24: 1-46

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 5:2

    Revelation 1:7, 3:10

    1 Corinthians 15: 51-53
  • Church Ministry - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    1 Corinthians 14 probably has that scripture. And you can see Paul teach on what that manifestation is about; how it was used in Church; or not used.

    It's better to prophesy with understanding of what you are speaking.

    In some churches I've attended: these kind of meetings were done at evening during the week. People would come together to Pray for the church, intercede; pray for healing of sick members. Some would very quietly pray in tongues. It was very orderly.

    Sunday services were more about corporate teaching, preaching; prayer for the sick, those who wanted to be born again.

    Sometimes on a Friday night the spiritual warriors would get together and beat up on the devil and his attacks against the members. The HolySpirit will give you the names of the demons. Some people have the Gift of speaking in tongues: which is totally different from "prayer language".

    Again it was done in order.

    The Pastor, and his staff, was present at all the meetings.

    There was street evangelism, and it sure helps to have a church praying and covering you in prayer: that you would find the people who were being drawn by the Holy Spirit.

    Church doesn't have to ever be boring.

  • Wayne - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    Will you see the Bible can be very ambiguous about many things and different people interpret it in different ways that's why we have so many different denominations of Christianity and so many that don't agree with each other , because they all believe that they are the ones that God is speaking to and they interpret the scripture the way they want to interpret it because of its ambiguity, so that makes me highly suspect of somebody that says God is telling them something , and some people take these differences very seriously like you see in the Middle East or say in Ireland and many other parts of the world,And I didn't say whether I agree or disagree I was just stating a fact that a lot of people say that exact same thing.

  • Rob on Matthew 27
    Matthew 27v46

    Matthew 27 v 50

    The death of the trinity doctrine .

    If you believe the trinity doctrine God left Jesus alone here and Jesus did not know why .

    Gods in full control none else here and many other places in the Bible

    Jesus still had the Holy Spirit seen in verse 50 until he gave it up .

    But this should be enough if you can sink some thought into it ...

    The trinity here in Father , Son and Holy Ghost are now separate. Poof goes you triune God that never existed to begin with !
  • Rob - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    The word of God said it and I Fully agree .

    Sounds like you don't .
  • David W Black on 1 John 3:15
    Just trying to help. It makes a huge difference to place yourself in the right church. The Bible names the right one as the Church of God. I go to a congregation of the Church of God, at Mercersburg, PA. We are not pentecostal; speaking in tongues is not proof of the Holy Ghost; a holy, sin free, righteous life is proof however, and is recognized by God as being right.

    In the US, there are several true Church of God congregations: Mercersburg & Connoquenessing PA, Manassas & Waynesboro VA, near De Graff and near Hamilton, OH, Corbin, KY, near Hayden, ID, Iaeger/Harmon Branch, WV, Brandon, FL, Birmingham & Huntsville/Chase, AL, Porter, OK, Mattoon, IL, Avondale, AR. These represent the ones known in the US to be in fellowship and are standing true. There are other congregations around the world; these just represent here in the US. Near any of these US locations? Want truth and correct Bible teaching? A God called pastor is at these locations. Revelation 18:2 says Babylon is fallen vs 4 says to come out. So if or when you come out of false churches, here's where to go, to find truth, salvation from sin. Ep. 4:4 tells us there's 1 body, 1 Lord, 1 faith... these locations are part of that 1 body. 1 Co. 1:10 we're admonished to speak the same thing; not languages like English, Spanish, etc. but in doctrine. There is one doctrine these congregations follow; having rightly divided truth as in 2 Tim 2:15. If you desire true preaching that delivers from sin, and keeps you on the path God wants for you, attend one of these locations, repent from sin, cease the sin business, be taught about sanctification, obtain it by prayer when you remain sinless, then be fully saved and pleasing to God. If you want more info, just ask.
  • Deborah L Hopkins on 2 Peter 1:20
    I have been told that there is a scripture that says everyone should speak in tongues every day. I have searched the KJV Bible and have been unable to find any such scriptures pertaining to that. If there is scripture telling us that could someone please help me out but giving me chapter and verse?
