  • Ron - in Reply on Revelation 6:6
    While both your positions are plausible, I lean more toward 1), there will be many more poor people and widespread economic hardship during the Tribulation period, yet a few rich will be able to enjoy the luxury goods, the wine and oil. The "Penny" in the KJV is the Roman silver denarius, which was a day's wage for a soldier or common laborer, as illustrated in Christ's parable of the laborers in Matthew Ch. 20. This may be describing a scenario where for many an entire day's earnings will purchase only a bare minimum of necessary food. The concentration of excessive wealth in a tiny percentage of the population and the gradual erosion of the middle class that we see today may be the beginning of this. For the first time in several generations, our children will not be as well off as we were.

    But let me correct myself that this chApter could also speaking on the gift of the Holy Ghost BUT there is a difference in diverse tongues which is a spiritual gift but it must have an interpretation of spoken to

    Other tongues, those are spoken to God. It's between you & God. You will go forward & will receive power. Go preach the gospel in boldness. We must do so in love. Always in love

    I believe that Acts 9 verse 8 answers that,

    "And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus."
  • Star - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14:23
    There is a difference in speaking in tongues as in Holy Spirit baptism. The Holy Spirit is the gift. Holy Spirit baptism in tongues is the utterance or a sign. Chapter 14 here is talking about spiritual gifts. It is those gifts given by God as he so desired to give. It's completely different. Even the first sentence of this chapter starts off by talking on spiritual gifts.
  • Juanita Cooke on Romans 3:6
    Will all Jews be saved?
  • Star - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14:23
    When I was desiring to be filled wthe the Holy Ghost, I spoke in tongues. It is also a sign, Mark 17. You will also receive power once that the Ho!y Ghost has come upon you. Acts 1:8. I'm in a small church. All speak in tongues.

    Mostly they speak unto God & not to the church. It's a beautiful sound to hear.

  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 12:21
    David, as a 14 year old, you're certainly dealing with a lot of internal strife & challenges, & this demonstrates quite an advanced mental & spiritual development in you.

    Without knowing all your facts, what I do detect is that you have a strong Will & direction for your life, & when things are not going according to plan, you become troubled & amazed. Though you did state that you're finding out that God has been helping through your problems. However, I don't think you will ultimately be successful by doing things in your wisdom & strength.

    For the Christian, it takes a lot of faith in God, to be able to step back & let God lead us, direct us & help us through our difficulties. The natural man says, "I can do it on my own", because that is something inbuilt in us to bring out the "self will & self confidence" we have to know everything & accomplish everything. But as you've found out, there's limitations to what you can do & that your efforts don't always turn out as you would like. It's true that God does expect us to use the wisdom & knowledge He gives us to deal with life's matters, but He also expects us that we know from where this knowledge comes from & to Whom we need to run to when our resources are exhausted. I sense, you are learning this important Truth.

    Proverbs 14:12 says, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." This tells us, at least in respect of the course & end of one's life, that man will always determine how his fate will end. But his 'wisdom' is actually folly because he simply cannot know from within himself something that only God knows & determines for man.

    Rather, we must cast ourselves upon the Lord completely. Proverbs 3:5-7, "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil." As Christians, we must fully trust Him.
  • Susan on Jude 1
    How wonderful to know ,that JESUS is able to keep us from falling,but,then HE presents us before the presence of his glory with exceeding great joy.Now,today,in this very moment.Let's bow before Him in thanksgiving ,let us worship him.
  • Pamela Williams on Hosea 3:5
    So, does Hosea 3:5 mean The Most High will raise up David to once again reign as King?
  • Othniel S Ken Farrell on Exodus 40
    1. One of the things that concerns me is when persons are praying aloud together

    2. When persons are speaking in unknown tongues but no interpretation follows.
  • Jesus said , pray that ye be counted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass on the earth.

    lord make me worthy by thy blood, in jesus name. amen.
  • Biblefan - in Reply on Matthew 15:27
    being called a dog is not flattering - but much less flattering is reading the commandments/exhortations of the bible and realizing how little i've taken heed of them, or have fallen short of my duties - an honest read of the bible is no ego trip

  • Norm on Luke 21
    Luke 21 . 7,8

    Jesus version of the end times

    V 7 take heed that test be not deceived : many shall come in my name , saying IAM , and the time draweth near : go ye not therefore after them .
  • The Believers CAUGHT UP in the CLOUDS - in Reply on Genesis 1
    We're told in the parable of the 10 virgins to be prepared; to have our lamps full of oil. (That would be the oil of joy of the Holy Spirit)

    According to Jewish marriage traditions: after the betrothal when we accept Jesus as Savior and Lord, there's a period of time when the details of the marriage is worked out. The grooms father will announce it when all is ready in preparations. The Groom builds an addition onto his fathers house for he and the Bride to return to after the wedding ceremony.

    In our part of this we are to wait, with wedding dress and oil. To WATCH and be READY to go with Him as soon as He appears. All born again believers are invited to this event. It's a covenant between His (Bride) Church and Himself.

    The dead in Christ will awake and be changed into their resurrection bodies. Their soul and spirit will be restored to them in the CLOUDS. Their caskets will be left open: the cremated, those lost at "sea", or bodies never recovered, burned, whatever state of the remains: will be restored in the blink of an eye.

    Then those alive on earth will rise to join them in their resurrection bodies also. We will join our Bridegroom and proceed to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb of God.

    Jesus has invited everybody on earth to experience the joy of salvation and be there with Him. I don't believe we will see what happens on earth after billions of people disappear in that eye blink.

    I do believe that the Election of the Gentiles will pass immediately to the Jews that are left on earth. Jews must be accept salvation just as we did. Some are saved Now and will go with Jesus. The Antichrist will be revealed at this time. 144 Sealed by God, Jewish evangelists will begin their ministry to the remaining Jewish people and even those LEFT BEHIND gentile unbelievers.

    Don't miss out on this! It's been in the Bible for 6000 years. You are invited. Accept It. Come to Jesus Now. Do Not procrastinate.

  • JERRY LANIER on 1 Corinthians 5
    My question is :

    was saul riding a donkey or walking on the road to damascus ?
  • Norman Walker Butch - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Thanks, there are so many things I wonder about and it may be silly on my part? One thing, I believe every word in the Bible and I never ask questions to try to prove it wrong I ask questions because I am so interested!

    This one I have wondered about and that is that Jesus is going to meet us in the air to judge us so how can he do that when there are millions or billions of people to judge? How could you have that much time? One thing is I know Jesus can do anything with a blink of a eye. How will he be able to talk to that many people? I think I must keep in mind that we may all be spirits not human like? Man what a day that will be, can you just think what it would be like talking to Jesus face to face! One thing I know for sure without a doubt it will be well worth it my friends!!

    Mishael Thank you for trying. I know I have read it before about 40 years ago it was Ezekiel I will find it again. Have a party when I find it. Many lessons can be learnt from Ezekiel. Paul
  • Cheryl on Revelation 21
    Revelation 21 verse 1 a new heaven and earth , why if everyone is suppose to be spiritual beings no body and physical needed is there a new earth what happen to everyone being caught up in the Rapture and taken to heaven , then it said only the 144 are going to heaven explain
  • Deborah Phillips on Luke 17
    Regarding the "day that Son of Man be revealed", what does that really mean. That Jesus Christ really is our Lord and Savior even to the Jews?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 10
    I've written to you before.

    When the Romans were fitting Jesus on the Cross, it was lying on the ground.

    They NAILED Jesus hands and feet. He was at that moment, lying upon "bed of nails".

    WAiting for the Romans to drop the cross into the hole that was dug. It was not a bed like as we lay upon.

    In Indian culture they do it for all kinds of reasons. You can Google that.

    There's nothing more I can add to this.

    Why are you pursuing this?

    Pursue Jesus Christ. Follow Him.
  • Unbelievers and Willfull Sin - in Reply on Psalms 53
    Unbelief in Jesus is a death sentence for the unsaved.

    We are not of this world anymore. We look for the new world to come. Faith always looks forward. Lots wife died by looking backwards, after she was ordered not to.

    We still sin until we ask the Holy Spirit to come along side of us, to enable us to resist temptations. He will do that. When you feel that pull between the flesh wanting to sin; it's a good time up put in an emergency call to the Holy Spirit. Satan wants our walk with God to feel defeated. He hates God and us.

    Even if you feel ashamed and defeated yet again: take those sins to 1 John 1:9. Then receive the cleansing.

    We can ask the Holy Spirit for the Gift of discerning of spirits. We learn discern the spirits at work around us. Ask for it.

    Human spirit

    Evil spirit

    Holy Spirit


    Instead of wallowing in defeat, pray and be cleansed and restored. Read these too: Hebrews 4:13-16; Hebrews 2:14; (a warning) Hebrews 10:26

    Hebrews is a good book to read at a snails pace. It has much to say about sin. It ends with people whom God mentions as heroes of the faith (chapter 11). Even King David that had Bathsheba's husband killed in battle so he could marry her. Their first baby died as a result.

    We are not of this world anymore. The more Bible we have in us; the less likely we'll choose to sin willfully.

    Satan hauls us before the Court of heaven and Accuses us with those sins. Jesus has to step up as your Advocate (defense attorney) and prove your innocence by opening the Book of Life to verify your name is written down in there. Hebrews 2:1, 3 and Revelation 3:5

    We have a born again nature that wants to follow Jesus and live the born again life.

    Revelation 3:15-22

    Consider these things in your walk with God: following His son Jesus. Pray, confess, depend on the Holy Spirits help.
  • J80 on Psalms 56
    drinketh of the wine why
  • Wanda Batefoot on 1 Peter 5
    Where is the scripture that talks about giving a cup of water in Jesus name
  • Heart Knowledge and Faith on Matthew 7
    For those interested in how all the animals were brought to the region of the Ark:

    You can study the weighty subject/science of Continental Drift theory or Pangea. See the maps, etc.

    Or like me you can simply have faith that when the Godhead speaks; necessary changes happen.

    My evangelist heart always wonders what does this have to do with us being born again into Jesus Christ?

    Not only are we going with Jesus to heaven, but we now have The Mind of Christ: to understand mysteries of heaven and earth.

    BUT first we must be born again and receive the Holy Spirits Baptism. He is the Spirit of Jesus Christ: the Word of God. He Teaches Us about Jesus; He opens up the mysteries as we are able to receive it. The more you know about Him, the more you will be able to understand His purpose and His work in the Believers.

    Our total reliance on Him, determines how much Rhema he opens up to us.

    We have to submit to being milk fed babies in the Word as our Faith and Obedience to the Word causes a deep inner hunger for the MEAT of the Word. God uses "food" to grow us up. We are to be Followers of Jesus in our walk with God.

    The Holy Spirits ministry is to oversee our growth as Christians. HE IS OUR TEACHER.

    You're going to have to talk to Him, and then listen for his reply. If your home life is noisy and filled with interferences, your ability to hear the Holy Spirit is diminished. You have to work that part out.

    Eating the Meat of the Word will change you! It is full of wonder. Your spirit is enlarged to receive more. Desire the pure milk, but study and let your prayer life (communication) to and from God, grow. Your faith will be huge.

    Our model to pattern by should always be Jesus. His mercy and grace towards people teaches us how to dial down our personalities somewhat; and dial UP our faith in Him. If we eat the fruit and throw away the seeds in the trash; how can anyone be saved? The seed is the scripture you store in your heart
