  • Debra on Isaiah 45:5
    Thank you for that most beautiful answer Bob..I have been praying that God would reveal His answer to me..and He has fulfilled that prayer request through you....Blessings Brother..
  • Chris on Acts 7
    Michelle...I have a list of how the apostles died (open to debate of course), but maybe because of its content, KJB Online is not permitting its posting. Sorry.
  • Anthony Feliciano on Hosea 4:6
    Without the Word of God, we are in darkness, in which we have no guidance, as Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one will see God without Christ, who is returning for the church in the rapture. Coming for a church white as snow, without marks or spots, and only in obedience to God Word, or Commandment, which proceed from the mouth of God, written with His finger and gave them to Moses to deliver to us all either in the Old Testament or New Testament by the Son of God as Christ the teacher of the Word of the Father God, amen.
  • Kenneth...I have a couple of explanations on this. Apart from a few (ancient) texts that say that "...this is My Body, which is given for you" (Textus Vaticanus and Textus Sanaiticus), most others show the word "broken" in that Scripture. One explanation is that Jesus' Body on the Cross was broken, but His Bones were intact, according to Scripture. So, Broken here means, it was torn, ripped, speared, bleeding, but His Bones were not touched. Another explanation is that it was referencing the offering of bread in communion and splitting (breaking) it apart to represent the crucified Body. I don't think we should unduly labour this point, as remembering His Sacrifice was paramount here.
  • Chris on 1 Timothy 2:12
    Michelle, the purpose of Paul's letter to the Church in Galatia was because in their midst, were Jews & Gentile believers. There was a group (Judaizers) who still held onto Jewish law & traditions, meaning that both God's Grace & human effort are needed for salvation. Or, in another way, one had to become a Jew before becoming a Christian. Paul said that this was heresy. He goes on in Chap 3 to say that Abraham was justified by faith & not by any works plus faith, so all believers, whoever they are, are God's children: whether Jew or Gentile, bond or free, male or female. There is still an order in the Church to be observed that does not detract from our glorious & equal position in Christ.

    Some studies are really easier when you approach through historical accounts. I would google that question. See Hebrews chapter 11. Fox's book of martyrs. It's all very interesting.
  • Trinity - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1
    Remember people shall reap that which is sown, whether it be good or bad. The word of God gives us clear instructions to apply to our lives and it also tells us about the end times which we are currently living in. The day shall come that the US is destroyed according to the word of God.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Matthew 1
    Jesse: I think the key word is MODERATION. If that is difficult then try abstaining. I know without a doubt that God delivers people from booze and drugs. He did for me. The only problem is telling people you've been born again with a beer in your hand. There are scriptures that say your freedom from law may hurt someone else who isn't as secure about salvation. You have a witness to protect. Your changed life is what other people are checking out. After I got saved I started going to church. My party friends came to take me out but I'd say hey why don't you come to church with me Sunday! They stop coming around. I was sad but God gave me all new friends :D I love Jesus huge.
  • Chris on 2 Kings 1
    Lundy...In 2 Kings 2:11 we read of Elijah & Elisha walking along & a chariot of fire came between them & Elijah was separated from Elisha and taken up in a whirlwind to Heaven.
  • Chris on Acts 7
    Maria...I doubt if you could get a correct answer, given the different ways people can understand and apply these verses. I see the Earth as having had a foretaste of the contents of the seals, and those who have suffered leading to death, or starvation or martyrdom, could certainly believe that the contents of the seals were upon them. However, I still look at these Judgements (Seal, Trumpet, & Vial) as part of God's Wrath upon the world in what we know as the Great Tribulation, a time of incredible suffering as has not see before. I don't believe we have come to this point, though as we progress, we see a continual deterioration in men's hearts & also signs for Anti-Christ's introduction.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 1
    Turkessa...Your question is short, but the answer is long...too long for this type of commenting. Could I direct you to an old book (and there are many good books on this subject), by J.I. Packer, "Keep in step with the Spirit". It is a good fundamental book that will help direct you in Godly living, listening out for the Spirit's inner voice in you, and obedience to His directions. If you put the Lord first in everything in your life, you can be certain that He will guide & keep you & alert you when at times you stray & not follow His Will. Psalms 32:8 is for you: "I will instruct thee & teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye".
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 89:47
    I went to Bible college 6 years with a masters and never really learned Greek or Hebrew. Yet what books do we use to learn these languages The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (10 Volume Set) by Gerhard Kittel is an absolute standard in seminaries. Kittel was an early member of the Nazi party a supporter of Hitler.

    Before we start using these lexicons to understand what words mean, maybe we should find out what these authors believe. Do we want to learn Greek from a Nazi or a believer like Martin Luther flawed as he might be

    the brown driver briggs Lexicon has Briggs who taught Messianic prediction has not and cannot be fulfilled aka

    Jesus is not the Christ in other words
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 45:5
    Debra, Bob's metaphor of man's three parts is apt, as also with the Sun (its three parts being:its substance, its heat, its light). Without even one of these parts, the Sun would cease to be a Sun as we know it. So too, God has revealed Himself to us in three Persons (not three separate people). If God were to remove even one of His Persons, He would cease to be God. In a weak description, God the Father is the Substance, His Word Jesus Christ is the Light (John 1:1, 8:12), His Spirit is the Heat, type of presence & power of God in us & in the world (Acts 2:4, John 16:8). Many religions believe we are wrong in believing this, but it is just that they are unable to understand it. Keep believing.
  • Chris on Psalms 24
    Marilyn, the word "generation" has a couple of usages in Scripture. As in the book of Genesis & Mathew 1:17 for example, it clearly applies to a timeline or family line. In other cases, Generation, can apply to people in general over any period of time (e.g. Luke 21:32, Acts 2:40, 1 Peter 2:9). I realize it gets confusing, but Scripture needs to be in its context: who is the writer writing about, was it an event taking place at that time, or was it referencing people then & in the future You are right, many in today's generation have turned their face from God & His Gift of Salvation. We must pray especially for those in our families who have heard the Gospel - that Light will shine to them.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 121
    Hey Kevin Mack - I understand your concerns. there was a time in my lifetime when America was a somewhat Godly country. We had Bible reading and prayer in public school when I was very young. the streets were safe with little crime, divorce was rare and people generally respected each other. Look at the USA today with abortion common, sodomite marriage and murder rampant. Judgment is coming and the church has generally been more concerned about tithes than anything else. Paul tells us the Lord promises us basically 2 things food and clothes

    1 Timothy 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

    Jesus warned we would be hated and have trouble in this world it has just begun
  • Michelle on 1 Timothy 2:12
    God also says that there is neither male or female, Jew or Greek, slave or free man, but that we are all one in Christ Jesus and, further, if we belong to Christ, that we are Abraham's descendants and heirs according to the promise. To preach that women should be silent and not teach or usurp authority over a man is to bring yourself under the bondage of the flesh, because the word teaches us that there is no male or female when you walk in the spirit
  • Chris on Psalms 89:47
    Troy, you are correct that the AV, as others, are just translations; they will never fully meet the interpretation, cultural, & societal aspects that are involved in original languages. The AV is the best we can have to read God's Word without learning Heb. & Gk. along with understanding the culture behind them. Your proficiency in Hebrew & Greek is to your credit & benefit & for our learning from such scholars. But to hold such disdain against the AV is a little harsh, I feel. Psalms 89:47: for the literal translation in English reads: "Remind me how short life is, what (in futility) have You created all the sons of men". The word, , futility (vain) is what you show as nothingness.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 1
    Adam, I agree that it is a sin to get drunk because we're to be sober-minded. (1 Peter 4:7, 2 Timothy 4:5).These people weren't drinking moderately because they were already drunk. If it is a sin to be drunk, why would Jesus give them more wine if they were already drunk They bring out good wine first, and after everybody has been drinking for a few days, if they run out of the good wine, they bring out the cheap stuff. Nobody knows the difference because they are pretty intoxicated by then! They ran out, and were given 120 to 180 gallons more. If they're already drunk, and are given another 180 gallons of wine, how do you conclude that since Jesus did this, it's okay to drink moderately
  • Jordan Olayemi - in Reply on Psalms 51:4
    Wesley's Notes for Psalms 51:4

    Justified - This will be the fruit of my sin, that whatsoever severities thou shalt use towards me, it will be no blemish to thy righteousness, but thy justice will be glorified by all men. Speakest - Heb. in thy words, in all thy threatenings denounced against me
  • Kimb
    If you are confused about accepting the Lord as your savior I will tell you from experience it's the BEST thing I ever did. The only thing that is holding you back is the devil, he does not want to you to go to the light and he will do everything he can to keep you from taking that next step. Watch sermons on Charles Stanley he is an amazing preacher and explains things so well. I pray you take that net step your talking about eternity, there are only two places to go once our earthly life is over and heaven is the place to be. If you already believe your half way there but you have to take that next step and invite Him into your heart, repent of your sins & confess with your mouth God bless
  • Chris on Philippians 4:13
    Sedalia, you have touched on one of my pet subjects: govts. legislating laws & judiciary performance of them. This is for me very devastating. We need to understand that our Western govts. are largely based on Judaeo-Christian beliefs & laws, & they are not Christian govts. & will legislate according to what they believe is correct for society & according to public opinion (after all they are in power because of our votes). So, they will never be perfect, nor can we expect them to be, until the coming of the Holy & Just Judge, our Saviour. With that in mind, govts. have deemed that divorce, re-marriage, gay marriage, abortion, etc. are legal. How will they stand before God in that Day
  • Mike Brooks on Philippians 4:13
    I need assistance I last my father almost 2 years ago. My problem is now I am having a hard time without him. I have a family of my own as they were close to him as well. I am having a hard time finding my way my role (JUST LOST) I would like to ask what do I do now, carona virus has me put of work and I don't know what to do please help lord
  • Kevin Mack on Psalms 121
    I'm shaken to my very soul, I just read Matthew : chapter's 24 and 25 great fear grips me when I see the politicians close the churches. At the same time I read Psalms 121 I wonder what will happen to us here in America. I want this psalm to come to pass for me and the other saints as well. God please let us find away to understand both passages of scripture. Give us till 2024, or rapture us out of here. I'm wanting Psalms 121 to be real for me.
  • Abraham on 2 Timothy 1:7
    The fear the Bible talks about is used with negative "not" refers to the condition in which we approach God.Because before Jesus ,our ancestors were given the covenant of Law on Mount Sinai to follow to live in peace with God. But the were dying like insect by a little mistake. In this way, the had been afraid to approach the Lord. Even animals died when the approached. Moses even said it that he was afraid to go near.They broke the covanant He told Jeremiah to let them know that he was about to make a new covenant with them which is of" LOVE AND PEACE not Of FEAR.(JER:31:33-34.)this is Jesus.Then through Jesus we are bound to God and live in peace andgo to God without fear..
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Isaiah 45:5
    the Bible ALONE teaches man has a body and a soul and a sprit = 3 parts = 1 man

    Genesis 1:26 - And God said, Let US make man in our image, after OUR likeness

    Genesis 1:27 - So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 9:6 - Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

    So IF one man is Body, Soul and Spirit which is 3 parts and God made man in HIS IMAGE

    How many parts is God 3

    1 Thessalonians 5:23 - And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. spirit, soul, body
  • ALLEN on 2 Corinthians 4
    What is the prophecies in revelation

    about the 3rd angel message
  • Anon Reel - in Reply on Matthew 15
    At any rate,John M. offers one of the few comments that indicates individuals should look outside the box (television that is) when it comes to truth. I find it astonishing how most people seem to base their entire views upon the sights and sounds which emanate from that man-made device. The popular media sources in general are lean on truth, yet it seems that television in particular dominates the landscape.There is an immediate revelation and a remote one in many passages. With this in mind let us consider Psalms 16:8 as well as 1 Peter 2:6 with regard to finding truth in this world. One can inquire of the Lord anytime about anything, past, present, and future. May God have mercy on us all.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 89:47
    If the Lord has no preserved word, then he is a failure and satan wins. Those who tell you this word is mistranslated are usually unbelievers and satanists. Thayer's Lexicon (he was a unitarian) who did not believe in the Deity of Christ and his word definitions reflect this. Then others claim the bible has "errors" Just because you do not understand something does not make it an error.
  • Kenneth on 1 Corinthians 11:24
    Why did the translation in the KJV use the word Broken when there was nothing Broken in The Body of Christ...

    And Jesus never said His Body would be Broken, but only Given....
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 1
    Hello, Jesus's first miracle was turning water into alcoholic wine which was at a party, as confirmed by this verse: John 2:10. Since Jesus did this I do not believe it is a sin to drink moderately. However, it is a sin to get drunk. It's also a sin to lead others into temptation or to stumble, for example, a recovering alcoholic is with you and you order a drink. 1 Corinthians 8:9-13
