    If you are miserable, that's a good indication the Holy Spirit is working on you:

    Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. (James 4:8-10)

    In 1 John 2:1, Jesus is our advocate, much like a defense attorney, defending us before the throne of God against the condemnation.

    Read Psalms 51 to see that David was in a situation where his sin separated him from God. He could not bear it so he confessed and pleaded with the LORD to restore the joy of his salvation.

    The prodigal son in Luke 15 deliberately departed from the way until his abject misery brought him to his senses. He was then welcomed back heartily by his loving father.

    Satan the accuser would celebrate your being so overcome with despair that you become swallowed up in it and give it up.

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

    All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6:37)
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Luke 17
    Hello Cher,

    Looking into your question I found the answer for you. At the bottom of the "trivia quiz" it gives an explanation of the answer. One leaper sought Him out in Luke 5:12 He healed. Then the ten in Luke 17:12 or 17. All the Bibles have the same numbers as I checked. So the answer eleven is correct.

    Hope this helps.

    God Bless.
  • Diana Ray on John 1:31
    Does the Bible state anywhere that baptism is done in free-flowing water? Such as a creek or river?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 122
    Let go of your fears and fully put your trust in God. My mother had it too. She suffered years. Said it didn't hurt, because of the cost etc.

    But after she had the surgery; the pain was changed to joy. You'll be there to dress the wound and help her take baths. Pray and ask the Lord to give her a double portion of healing recovery and thank Him every day afterwards. I pray your faith also will be energized. Let me know how it goes. Medicare should pay all of the cost. You might have to cut a shoe toe out for going outside.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 122
    The beginning of trust is believing God is who He says He is and the completion of trust is when we make God our Lord by completely surrendering all that we are and have - ourselves, our occupation, our resources, our time, and our families to God.

    Proverbs 3:5 says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. However, in real life, most of us have a hard time trusting God completely at one time or another. We need to trust God with His ways and His timing for our life. We need to Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

    In order to trust God completely, we need to make Him the Lord of our life. But many of us do not want to give control of our lives over to another. At the first sign of any difficulty, we think that God must not love us because He is permitting this difficulty to happen. We need to remember that we do not see the big picture as God does. God may be waiting for a part of the picture to develop that is not yet ready and that includes us. Help us to trust you.

    We need to keep trusting God regardless of what is happening around us, even if things seem hopeless. We need to keep our eyes on Him rather than on our problem. He will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him: because he trust in Him (Isaiah 26:3). God is very aware of each thing that is happening to you. We need to turn control completely over to our heavenly Father and stop trying to figure out a solution ourselves.

  • Interrogating the Facts that are in the Bible - in Reply on Mark 1
    You can Google that information and you will see differing opinions.

    Fact is that all the disciples traveled with Jesus and witnessed the same events. That is why they are called, 'Harmony of the Gospels."

    Four men saw the same things, and wrote of what they saw: with their perceptions and in their own words.

    There may have been time differences of exactly when they wrote of what they witnessed. Every one of them were killed and I'm sure trustworthy people carried the manuscripts.

    Apostle Paul wrote much of the New Testament. John who was imprisoned on Patmos, wrote the Book of Revelation; lived a long life and died in his bed.

    I'm not the right person to debate who, what and when, with.

    I believe the Bible as it is. Why? Because my salvation experience was all supernatural. It was a visual vision, but it was also in the present as I received deliverance on the spot. The Holy Spirit walked me through Acts 19:19, since I had been in the occult. I saw someone from heaven, and I got to see hell too.

    I refuse to dispute validity! It's all real.

    Ask yourselves why are you investigating the Son of God?

    Faith believes what Jesus said. You can't please God without faith? If we think we can interrogate God; just as we interrogated our own President (for 4 years!!) and dig up some dirt? you are in danger of seeing hell too. I do not recommend it.

    It is total darkness, no light. It's twisting tree roots, snakes worms and worse! It smells of rotting flesh; but it's empty. It is Unclean, filthy, polluted. Quiet. No sound yet.
  • Cher - in Reply on Luke 17
    I Googled and it says 10 men with leprosy came to Jesus.
  • Examples of Apostasy on Matthew 1
    John 6:66

    After this many of his disciples TURNED BACK and no longer walked with him

    (Jesus).

    Hebrews 10

    How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?

    Hosea 14:4

    I will heal their apostasy; I will love them freely, for my anger has turned from them.

    Revelation 3:16

    So, because you are lukewarm, and NEITHER hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.

    2 Timothy 2:18

    Who have SWERVED from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some.

    Book of Jude 1:

    For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

    Matthew 10:33

    But whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

    Hebrews 9:28

    So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, NOT TO DEAL WITH SIN, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3

    Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction

    Hebrews 3:12

    Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.

    Galatians 1:8-9

    But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I SAY AGAIN, If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you (first) received, let him be accursed.
  • Wandering Off and Apostasy on Psalms 34
    I'm writing this as cautionary.

    If you have doubts about the validity of Gods written WORD... you need to search this out yourself.

    Google study how the Bible was assembled and approved as the inerrant Word of God.

    Right now, almost all of the ancient scrolls of the Bible are under protection in Israel. Being compared to what is in our Bibles now. Definitely take a look at that.

    Listen to what Jesus says about this:

    2 And he (Jesus) taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

    3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

    4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

    5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth.

    6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

    7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

    8 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

    9 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    You are one of these. Figure out which one?

    We are living in the beginning of The Great Falling Away. Many people are just going to wander off and not come back. They worship this world system that does not support Faith in anything.

    There is "wander off".... and there is outright APOSTASY. The Bible in Isaiah says: COME LET US REASON TOGETHER...

    I'm not going to argue myself blue to convince you that Jesus is who He says He is. You need to consider Romans 1:20 and 2:1.

    If we wander away after these people who express doubts as to the validity of the Bible, then your roots are non-existent or drying up. Shaken by the wind.

    Have faith in God and His Word; which is Jesus Christ, the Messiah. Examine yourselves.

    Mishael
  • JIM on Romans 8:24
    Clearly demonstrating once again that JESUS is NOT flesh and bone but of a spirit nature, i.e. is made of energy and not physical things. Demonstrating once again anyone professing FLESH AND BONE jesus-man is a LIAR, charlatan and is bearing false witness!
  • I do not understand vs 24: "Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth."

    Will someone please explain? TIA
  • Mishael - in Reply on Luke 17
    The KJV Bible is the most accurate translation of Canonized Scripture.

    I suggest you do a Google study. Council of Nicea.

    Or perhaps Chris will comment on this later.
  • 1 searching on 1 John 4
    Someone please explain to me what it means to love the brethren ? Especially the part about loving God who you have not seen but hate your brother who you have seen. Is he talking about a christian brother or natural brother?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 5
    If he is not a Christian (and his fruit as a child of God stinks);

    You are free to remarry.

    The marriage chapters.

    1 Corinthians 7, Matthew 5
  • 1 searching on 1 John 2
    Matthew Henry explained vs 1 and to saying when the gospel 'rightly understood and received sets that heart against all sin and stops the practice of it, at the same time gives blessed relief to the wounded consciences of those who have sinned. I agree with this statement for all those who once saved never look back and live a life for the Lord. But people like me who knew the truth, lived it and then fell away, we don't get that blessed relief of consciences at least i don't. I know I am saved but the joy of life is gone, unless i am not understanding.
  • Ptjones on Matthew 24:9
    Matthew 24:32. Our Lord Jesus said this parable to his disciples as a prophecy of future Israel. Fig tree denotes Israel nation. Hosea 9:1.Israel nation rebirthed in 1948. Now it is 72 years passed. Israel is well established showing tender branches. That denotes summer is nearing. What is summer to Israel. Summer is the season of harvest.Matthew 13:39 says harvest denotes end of the world. Yes it is time of Messiah to come. In Psalms 90: 10 says "The days our years are threescore years and ten:and if by reason of strength they may be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow: for it is soon cut off, and we fly away". So Israel remains only eight years (maximum) for harvest. Called, Chosen and faithful - be ready for the glorous event.

    Mishael - would you pray for my mum. I have put it in the prayer request a minute ago.
  • Cher on Luke 17
    Your trivia on Luke17 has a discrepency in the number of men who had leprosy that came to Jesus. When I read the standard english bible, it says there were 10 men who were lepers. Your King James bible version says there are 11. Who has the correct account of the bible?
  • Cameron Bryant on Jeremiah 12:16
    A clear indication here that his name has been changed early on to the point of all historical records bearing his name may have even been that name they were using incorrectly and then covered over again with generic terms as god and lord, even baal its self means lord. Liveth, coming after the name signifies he is reiterating what he told moses when he told him to tell the israelites I am that I am therefore tell them I AM has sent you. In specific unto whom he made himself known even having a name is it not disrespectful to call your dad by his first name even so the Son acknowledges His Father as living Father and came in His Fathers name saying many things declaring I am the living bread that cometh down from heaven. To address him otherwise would mean you are in opposition to life inquiring like a business proposal instead of inheriting the love that a Father has for his Son and a Son who heeds his Father's words to honor and return the same love he is loved with.
  • Chris - in Reply on Micah 1
    Greg, as with all the prophets sent by God to pronounce judgement on the evils by His people, Micah too, proclaimed God's displeasure for that particular duration of his prophetical utterances. So from Micah 1:1, we see Micah sent as a prophet to Judah during the successive reigns of Kings Jotham, Ahaz & Hezekiah. Prior to Micah, the prophet Amos preached & after Micah, came Isaiah.

    So the 'misbehaviour' that Micah referred to was during the reigns of these three kings. Jothan & Hezekiah were generally considered to be 'good' kings, unlike Ahaz. For the common poor Israelite, they encountered much harassment from enemy armies, also of hardship by the exploitation from the wealthy amongst them (2:1-13), oppression by their rulers (3:1-4) & the many false prophets who misled them from the Truth (3:5-8). Micah, as did Amos, proclaimed judgement on the people as well as crying for social justice. And of course, apart from the sorrows that came to the people at the time, ultimately Judah went into the Babylonian captivity for failure to abide by God's requirements.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Jim, it was troubling to read your understanding of Genesis chap 6 & particularly likening the Almighty God to a child throwing a 'hissy fit'. You demonstrate a very poor understanding of the Doctrine of God if all you can see in that passage is a simple-minded, irrational God.

    If God Who has the wisdom & power to create all things out of nothing, but as you state, shown Himself to be incapable of controlling His Anger & not displaying the required commonsense, then where does your determination leave you as a simple sinful created being speaking so highly & ignorantly against the Holy Living God?

    Could not your 'wisdom' in judging the Character of God as being flawed, leave you wallowing in your ignorance as one who is destitute of knowledge of Who God is & of His Plans for mankind, that you attempt to make judgement on? It seems that you would need to be at God's side, in full knowledge of His Plans & Purposes, seeing the rampant wickedness of mankind, noting the "preacher of righteousness" (Noah, 2 Peter 2:5) living amongst the wicked, & God's desire to give mankind another chance rather than wiping them all out forever, before even a reasonable judgement from you can be given.

    Rather, we should all plead ignorance on matters that are way beyond our knowledge & our limited narrow worldly perspectives & submit to the All-Wise God Whose Word that goes out accomplishes all that He pleases. By declaring what you have just said only serves to demonstrate that part of your thinking that is perverted & in darkness about the God before Whom you will one day have to stand.

    14 What then shall we say?(AC) Is God unjust? Not at all!(AD) 15 For he says to Moses,

    "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,

    and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion."[f](AE)

    16 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God's mercy.(AF) 17 For Scripture says to Pharaoh: "I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth."[g](AG) 18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.(AH)
  • Rob on Revelation 12
    A few thoughts on the pretrib rapture .

    I remember before I was saved I often worried about getting left behind and I'd check just to make sure some people I though where strong Christians where still present . Glad those days are over ! :)

    If it was true all Christians go so you don't need to believe in it . It's not the second coming of Christ that we need to be ready to open unto him .

    The sad part is so many will be disappointed went it does not happen and may not be able to prepare for the real tough times .

    When I found it to be false it was through the Bible over time , not a slam dunk as it is today . I much preferred the pretrib rapture and dreaded the alternative. But the truth is We are not appointed to wrath of God , but man may have some trouble for us etc .

    But God as Apostle Paul said God shall deliver us from all affection and evil .

    It takes time to realize that this life is temporary and God has such a bigger plan ahead !

    He will get us there any way he wants .

    So don't panic when it does not happen prepare for the worst and anyway . I have no fear of the future , the sooner we leave the better as far as I'm concerned! But God is patient and trying to save more ...
  • Rob - in Reply on Luke 3
    Thank you Chris , I share with hope of helping others , we all have different experiences.

    I like that old hymn Trust and obey , many classics indeed !
  • Rob - in Reply on Matthew 5
    Stay faithful , you have done it so far , don't give in to temptation.

    Only death frees a person from a marriage, read Romans ch 7 .

    There is so much misinformation on divorces theses days .

    God will judge adulterers.

    I met a couple years ago they both where married previous and decided to marry again and started a new marriage that they regretted later .

    They felt they rushed into it and had bad counsel . They broke up the second marriage confessing the sin of it .
