  • Kevin mack on Mark 1
    Just looked up locust plants on the internet, big difference in the description of the plant it's actually a tree . Known as honey locust trees or black honey locust trees. Also not the same info that was in my moms bible. O well , still think this is what John probably ate. Who would chase bugs for breakfast. Plus God forbid his people to eat certain things, bugs is one of them, so I think.

    Your testimony. I mean wow, I'm blown away at how Jesus Christ has worked in your life. And honestly I think people mistake alot from the bible, when it actually is the manual for living our lives. (You often hear "well, kids dont come with instructions" but, yet they do!.) Now I'm a sinner, been baptized in the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit. Yet I stray. And sin. I did not heed the warnings God bestowed upon me, and now I'm asking for his help once again, hopeless to the idea of being able to leave my narcissistic husband. We are toxic together. Not only him but me as well. Please pray with me!
  • David A Man After God39s Own Heart - in Reply on Ephesians 5:26
    The life of King David represents what a lot of people go through too. You'll have to search back through the comment room history pages 1-100, to see a study I did on Tamar; David's daughter.

    David was "a man after Gods own heart." No matter what happened, or collapsed like a pile of leaves, David always turned towards God for his help/understanding.

    "The Poet King" is how I've thought of him at times. Read his heart.

    He praised and sang his heart out to God at every twist and turn. It gives me much comfort to read the Psalms Of David in his older life. His kids just wouldn't sit still. His enemies railed on him night and day.

    Some people react to that by getting stoney in the heart; blaming God, their dad, Mom, The President; life in general, future in doubt. Blame is a vortex (like a tornado) that just spins around eating up your happiness and future; until you realize that YOU are the problem. Leave all the mess on the Altar of God and turn back to Him.

    Walk BESIDE Him. Not dragging along behind Him. You know...when life gets so painful and it never lets up; pulsating with lost hope and plunges into darkness. Like driving a toothpick under a nail kind of pain?

    Turn back to the one who has loved you so much, He was nailed to a cross for you!

    Return to your first love; when you met Him the first time. Confess your meandering and be restored.

    Grow up and move into son/daughter status. God isn't going to chase you down or drag you back home by the collar. You turn back to Him!

    If you want to love people, family, fellowman; much better than currently: Grow up in Christ. Get off that blame train.

    Be a person after Gods own Heart. Let Him be your Daddy.

    Mishael
  • Echel Romain on Daniel 6
    God will always be with you even it seems like anybody can end you. God is a God of saving. He will always be there if you need help. He will never let u die in the presence of your enemies. People might be jealous of you but don't worry. God will always there. If you need help on a test, He will help you.
  • Kevin mack on Mark 1
    Ah ! Locust, it's a plant . It looks somewhat like poison sumach when fully grown and ready to pick. It has a cone shaped cluster at the end of each branch. Also has everything in it that the body needs in nutrition, all the vitamins and minerals. It alot like a cluster of nuts and grains mixed in a cone shaped clump. Found all this out in a dictionary inside of a big family bible my mom had from 1957. It's God's granola !! Not bugs . People need to do research, not jump to conclusions.
  • Christina Robinson on Matthew 24:26
    On this Scripture could it be referring to lawlessness in the Churches in opening their doors to the Church telling the congregation that it is a sin not to gather and not practicing social distance and not wearing a mask . Opening up the nursery handling the children without concern for there health and going as far as to go to Summer Camp and the children mocking others hugging on each other while with a mask on. Posting a preacher rebuking christian people for not opening there doors telling us that we should not wear a mask and not social distance because the first Church in the Book of Acts did not do this. I see this Scripture for this time as they are saying here He is follow us and if you don't you are in sin.

  • Brianna vs 10 on James 3:10
    Excellent reminder. So many christians have become comfortable with using profanity. How can we praise God and curse out the same mouth!?!?!?! True the tongue is a difficult thing to tame, but there is a difference between actively trying to utter pleasing speech and just simply giving in to bad behaviour. With God all things are possible. If we want to overcome a problem, he can help us.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    They died spiritually. Became like us; mortal. Adam lost the closeness that he had once. It's really tender how God made them clothing to take away their fig leaves. He covered them. God felt that pain of separation too. But looking way down through history, He saw His son dying and taking away the sins of mankind on his own body.

    When we do sinful things: that pain we feel has to be taken to the Cross; so we can be restored.

    Times in the past, I'd think, "well God has me covered, no big hurry to hit my knees."

    But I learned by the silence from God, that I would do anything to restore the fellowship that bathed my soul in Light.

    Darkness hurts.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 25
    Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Romans 8

    "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us". That includes "so called" global warming, asteroid impact, volcanos, earthquakes, solar flares or any other "supposed judgement of God".

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1John 4:18

    Mishael, be warned!
  • Tunde Aliyu on Psalms 27:13
    Very inspiring and invigorating scripture
  • Carleton - in Reply on Ephesians 5:26
    The Gospel Tract and Bible Society have some very simple but clear tracts on very many subjects for wayfarers that wish to cross in due time to the other shore in confidence of peace and salvation in Jesus Christ. They are located in Kansas.

  • B Bulluck on Psalms 91
    I think Psalms 91 is very appropriate in the time we live in today. I read this Psalm every morning, will continue to read it as long as this pandemic is upon the land.
  • James Williams on Psalms 23
    Psalms 23 is the power an might coming down from heaven for such a time as this, God said he would never leave us neither for sake us!! That's what Psalms 23 means to me the Blood of Jesus all over me I love reading psalms. Father Son & the Holy spirit.
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    Adam and Even didn't die? So, do you think they're still alive? Of course they died. They were immortal then after eating the fruit they became mortal and Adam died when he was 930 years old. The Bible didn't specify WHEN he would die, but he died just as God said. So, any assumption as to a timeframe is made up and not in the Bible, as the Bible never said it would be in 5 seconds, 5 minutes, hours, days, or even years. Even characters in the Bible themselves have endured huge patience in waiting on God like Abraham and Sarah. But God did exactly as he said. It just isn't necessarily within man's own arbitrary expectations of when they want things to happen.
  • Mathew thomas on Genesis 2:9
    In Genesis 2 God says not to eat from tree of knowledge or they would die. Later, when they do eat the fruit, they do not die. We know God is truth. So why did he say they would die?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    You need to go on YouTube and watch some spiritual warfare videos. I like Derek Prince.

    Go to the entry of this website, in the red section to Community and select the "become a Christian " link. Go through that so you may be born again.

    You can't be saved and practice witchcraft. So you need to understand how serious this is. Demons are invisible. Ephesians 6

    They don't like to let go.

    Clean your house, top to bottom of anything that would open a door to demons. It must be destroyed first. Acts 19:19.

    When Derek prays, you pray too.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Jesus, in your Mercy and Kindness please answer this prayer for recovery and a double portion of healing For this mothers child. We give you all the praise and Glory for this miracle and humbly thank you.

    In Jesus most excellent Name: Name above all others.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I agree with you that the Doctor will give you a good report. You will live and declare the glory of God. May He give you strength and WISDOM to be a leader lady in the house. Amen Hallelujah!

    You have covenant with your husband, so you two must pull this load together and make joint decisions.

    Your daughter must take over half of the duties of the house. Her husband should do half of the outside work and cars.

    Dinners need to start with one small Psalm from the Bible. It's not offensive. Kids need to respect your belief.

    I heard that grocery stores really need personal shoppers and curbside or delivery for shut-in people. Maybe your brother In law wouldn't mind that, until jobs start coming back? Doing something helps when you're waiting:)

    Your bedroom needs to be off limits so you can go in there and read one chapter of your Bible and say a prayer.

    Just have a family meeting with ice cream and announce work division so there will be peace in the home. You need to take care of yourself so you can manage this.

    Allow Jesus to carry some of the spiritual burden for you: cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you. Give Him the abortion pill burden for sure.

    You can tell her I said that God told me He's Pro-Choice. CHOOSE life so that you and your children may Live. (I told him that's not really what you say nowadays...but He didn't say skip it). Book of Deuteronomy.

    Jesus loves you and is at the right Hand of God, making intercession for all of us. Thank Him for helping you.

  • Re-Commitment Prayer by Mishael - in Reply
    It means return to your first love when you First met Jesus. The scripture is in Revelation 2:4

    Just compare your life today to those first days when you first asked Jesus to come in your heart. You read your Bible. You asked the Holy Spirit to help you understand what you have read. He's your Teacher, and the Spirit of Jesus; your Comforter; your Convictor when you make mistakes, your Helper. He's here for you.

    Just pray this prayer to return to your first Love:

    Lord, after what I've read today, I don't want to allow any spirit of compromise in my life! I now understand that the doctrine of the Nicolaitans is compromise with the world. Lord, I don't want to live with one foot in the church and another foot in the world. I want to break free completely from the world and its influence so I can give myself completely to Your cause! I want to be holy, to live in a way that pleases You, and to experience Your power in my life.

    Today I am renewing my commitment to You all over again! I turn from the world, and I am running to You! I will follow you.

    I pray this in Jesus' name!

    1 Derek Prince depression

    2 Derek Prince familiar

    This is not about God waiting for you to die.

    You are under spiritual warfare from demons. Could be depression has affected other family members or ancestors.

    Tomorrow morning I want you to go through your home: drawers, closets, and look for idols. Anything that feels other worldly or creepy: books , magazines, hardrock music or music like Tool; Halloween stuff, zodiac.

    Tee shirts that do not represent Jesus.

    Demons use those things as doorways to get in. THEY ARE INVISIBLE. Ephesians chapter 6. Know what you're dealing with. I didn't and they almost killed me.

    Once you get rid of all that stuff you'll be ready to find out what's really making you feel bad. Nowadays people think that those who are depressed just need a different kind of medication. You have a chance to get off all that medicine, but Later, not yet.

    Derek Prince is a leading deliverance minister. Some of the videos are short. Listen to the longer ones. If Derek prays, you can pray with him. Hold up your hands and receive some deliverance.

    Demons don't care if you get saved. They just don't want you to get free and cast them out of your life. They are not your friends. If there's any kind of manifestation from them, say these words:

    "I am covered in the Blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. His blood has washed me white as snow". Say that often.

    Right this second, I want you to pray and repent of saying that God is not Good. Ask the Holy Spirit to come ALONGSIDE and help you get free. Then say: I receive you Holy Spirit. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!!

    Ask God to send an angel to keep your home safe so you can sleep.

    Keep this email and let me know what happens. I'm here for you. We're going to pray together later. I'll check my mail

    Put the radio on a Christian radio station and make the demons listen to people talk about Jesus for hours.

    FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

    Google it. Read it. Understand it.

    I too was in a very similar dark season of wilderness. Life-long: Depression. Anxiety. Confusion. Resentment. Finger pointing. I spoke against God, as you do because of MY misunderstanding and MY afflictions. Because of MY walk.

    I thought because I simply believed in God he was supposed to change my life. He was supposed to be there for me, when I needed him. I thought he didnt care for me and didn't care if I died. I pleaded to die. Considered suicide for over a decade. I yelled, I cried, I turned away from Him before ever knowing him. If I believed in God how could he want this for me? How could one person handle SO MUCH pain? Why me? Why?

    Guess what;

    God DID want me to die..yeah I said it. The ME who I saw. The ME who I wanted to be. The ME who thought I knew who God was. The ME who thought I was the creator of my life story. The ME who knew it all. The ME who indeed, needed to die.

    God didn't tear ME down. God allowed me TO be tore down. Torn apart. Broken. Physically, mentally and spiritually. God gave me free will to live how I wanted. He gave me the free will..to sin. For the wages of sin are what? DEATH. Not having Complete Faith in God is..sin.

    Where am I going with this;

    Now, at 39 years old God recently called me. Finally I (ME) was ready. The man I was DID DIE. Praise God!! The man I was DID SUFFER UNTIL HIS DEMISE. God didn't kill me..he brought me to HIM. He is showing me WHO I AM. God has begun to saturate my heart(spirit) through the power of His Holy Spirit. I no longer live for ME. My life is in HIS hands. He knows what I need.

    Do you know a bone is stronger after being broken? Do you know that HE knows what is best for us? Are you ready to truly Believe in Him and to live through Faith?

    Do you REALLY believe in Jesus Christ or do you need some magic wand to live the life YOU want for YOURSELF? Believing truly in our Savior is to live in Faith. To live in Faith is to live in his will

    Flossy Ann Archibeque;

    You seem to have faith and strength that most of us on this web site could only hope for.

    1 Corinthians 10:13

    "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."

    With God and with His precious Word of life, You are stronger than you can possibly imagine!

    With Love and hope. :)

    My favorite song. "Arise, My Soul, Arise" Charles Wesley

    Arise, my soul arise, Shake off thy guilty fears; A bleeding Sacrifice In my behalf appears; Before the throne my Surety stands, Before the throne my Surety stands, My name is written on His hands.

    He ever lives above, For me to intercede; His all redeeming love, His precious blood to plead; His blood atoned for all our race, His blood atoned for all our race, And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

    Five bleeding wounds He bears, Received on Calvary; They pour effectual prayers, They strongly speak for me; Forgive him, oh! forgive, they cry, Forgive him, oh! forgive they cry, Nor let the ransomed sinner die.

    My God is reconciled, His pardoning voice I hear; He owns me for a child, I can no longer fear; With confidence I now draw nigh, With confidence I now draw nigh, And Father, Abba, Father, cry.

    This could be our song together as brothers and sisters of faith!

  • Lamar on Romans 7
    You Nailed it Hecter 4years ago
  • Lamar on Romans 7
    The key to Romans 7 is in the first verse ."Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?" for I speak to them that know the law . For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.verse 5 when we were in the FLESH . chapter 8 talks about when U are in the Spirit . There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Walking in FLESH is walking in Works LAW . Walking in SPIRIT is walking in FAITH . if U are dead to the flesh and alive to the Spirit in CHRIST JESUS then U can do the things U want to do and not do the things U don't want to do under LAW U are BOUND under SPIRIT U are Free....
  • Jodi on Ephesians 5:26
    I'm feeling stuck. I am going through a lot of trials, I know God is testing me to the fullest, I am trying to remain strong and give my troubles to him, but everything creeps back in. I'm searching for recommendations of readings that may help me. I appreciate the suggestions, thank you in advance and GOD BLESS.
