  • Nick Borja on Psalms 2
    I am amazed how things written centuries ago are still VERY fitting for us today. There's no way any of this would be possible if the Bible was merely just ... a book!
  • WilliamtheResolute on Matthew 24:15
    The Abomination of Desolation is the Catholic Church and the Whore of Babylon is the Jesuit on the throne.
  • Vicki Kalal on Matthew 24:36
    I've been a Christian (born again) since 11/1/1992. I'm 79 years old. Upon studying the Scriptures, I know Jesus could return anytime. Upon further study, I've kind of looked for Him as possibly during the fall since the other prophecies have been fulfilled by Jesus Christ. (Blessed to have been in Israel in 1994 during the fall high holy days) I've been accused of setting date of Jesus return. It's been 28 years of watching. I don't know when He's coming. I've really suffered with this. Am I guilty of date setting? Thank you.
  • Sylvia on Matthew 24:20
    Wow Matthew 24-20 say but pray ye

    that your flight be not in the winter, neither

    on the Sabbath day. That is something people

    should be focusing on this verse is so correct

    On what we are facing now.

    Matthew 15:24

    "But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel."

    Matthew 15:27 (she was blessed recognizing Israel's program)

    "And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."

    Rom11:11

    "I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles,..."

    Ephesians 2

    12 That at that time ye were without Christ, ....and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

    13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

    2 Cor 5:16

    "Wherefore...: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more."

    Ephesians 3:2 (givenPaul (1 Corinthians 15 v1-4) not Peter

    "If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward

    Galatians 2v7 two gospels (uncir Paul circum Peter)
  • Fred scanlan on John 20
    In John14:Thomas is asking questions, not unlike us. What comes out are the words "I Am the way,the truth and the life"! Again this chapter Thomas says "unless I can put my fingers into the nail print and thrust my hand into his side". Christ chose the twelve, He new who was given Him from the Father. He knows Thomas and was expecting the questions that others did not ask! Thomas very bold then,even now in this chapter. This is important for us, when we want answers or have doubts. Gods timing with Thomas should help us to know that we are chosen, that their will be times when we will be separated and alone, the doubts and questions that arise, Christ will answer in time,that God knows you better than you know yourself.Christ understands these things because He was tempted like we are! If seeing is believing, than believing is seeing.Thomas steps out, but he returned in Gods time. Kneeling and seeing and confessing my Lord and my God! Blessed are those who have not seen but believe!

    Thank you, that makes a lot of sense.
  • Bob on Galatians 6
    As soon as we die, will we immediately be judged? Hallelujah and praise the Lord JESUS!!
  • William Cochran on Revelation 10:11
    Revelation 10:11? What are the specific details that John is prophesying?
  • Leslaw Michalak on Ruth 4
    Ruth 4:7

    Could you tell me more about this custom, please? Where it came from? Why shoe? What it represents? Do you know of any articles about this custom?

    Thank you.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    GWEN: Father, Son, Holy Spirit are the LET US, that are speaking. Jesus said I and My Father are one and the same. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Jesus.

    When Adam was spirit, soul, body until he and Eve used their FREE WILL to eat the forbidden fruit because Satan said it would be ok. They lost their spirit connection for fruit!! Satan sure uses food to tempt people.

    The only way we can be connected to God spiritually is to be Born Again.

    These days we are living in are about the great falling away (from God). The apostasy.

    Get a modest sized concordance with dictionary that will help you study a subject. I've actually found perfectly good condition KJV version Bibles at Goodwill stores.

    TO Madeline: Psalms 27:10 is for your granddaughter. One of my favorites: If my father and mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.'

    Give these scriptures to her also: Romans 8:15, Ephesians 1:5 and 1 Corinthians 12:13. She is adopted by her Heavenly Father. She is highly blessed.
  • Mishael on Galatians 6
    I'm sorry Bob. I hadn't read all the way down about food issues.
  • Mishael on Galatians 6
    Eating raw or undercooked pork can expose us to trichinosis. Worms. In those days of history there was no refrigeration. God was protecting his people. If the freshly killed pork was drained of blood and then roasted properly..it could be eaten with prayer. There's info on how Temple priests killed and prepared animals for sacrifice.

    :D anybody for sushi?
  • St Francis - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14:39
    "Forbid not" means "FORBID NOT." It doesn't mean give my opinion or an accurate disputation about toungues being meaningless or interpretable, or etc.....Simply, humbly "Forbid not." What section of "Forbid not" is cofusing to you?!
  • Jesse - in Reply on James 1
    I'm not sure that Jesus changed their names at all. Certainly not because they became apostles, otherwise He would have changed the names of the other apostles too.

    Paul was born with the name Saul. He was from Tarsus. We see in the book of Acts that his name goes from being called Saul, to all of a sudden he is now called Paul for the remainder of Acts, and throughout the 13 epistles he wrote.

    His Hebrew or Jewish name was Saul, and his Roman or Greek name was Paul, or Paulos. They are both the same name, one being Jewish, and one being Greek. Peter was called Simon Peter. Simon, or Simeon was his Hebrew name. He was also called Cephus, and Petros by Jesus, both meaning stone, Cephus being Aramaic, and Petros being Greek.
  • Judy - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14:39
    God protected Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom so no one else would get it. After the seven years of punishment God gave it back to Nebuchadnezzar, we know this by the band of iron and copper that was put around the stump. You can find this at Daniel 4:18-37.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Part 4) Last one, I promise!

    If anyone chooses not to eat pork, I will never argue with them about it. And if I'm out someplace for dinner with a brother or sister in Christ, and they feel it's wrong to eat something, guess what? I'm not going to eat it either. I have that freedom in Christ. True freedom is when we are free not only to do things, but to not do things. That's true freedom!
  • Jesse - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Part 3) Peter is saying that it's an unlawful thing, according to the "Rabbi's Rules," for a man that is a Jew, to keep company, or to come into one of another nation; anybody that's not a Jew, but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. It's the same thing God showed him about the animals. Now Peter is putting two and two together, because he didn't understand the vision that was given to him.

    The section I mentioned, Acts 10:9-16, is referring to animals. It's clear to me that Matthew 15:11 is saying it's not what a person eats that defiles that person. And yes, it's what comes out of the mouth, the evil words that come from a man's heart. That's what defiles the man, not what he eats.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Part 2) Well, here's what the Rabbi's Rules came to. For instance, it was against God's law for a Jew to eat a pig. And so the Rabbi's said "Since it is against God's law for you to eat Gentile food, especially a pig, then we will make up a rule that it is not lawful for you to interact with a Gentile, because if you don't interact with the Gentile, you will not eat Gentile food, especially pig.

    So they made the rule up. You see, that was their reasoning. It wasn't because of what God said, but because of man in his rules and regulations, the "Rabbi's Rule's" as they're called.

    They said a Gentile is unclean and off limits. God never said that, the Jews did. I find no place in scripture where God ever said that a Gentile is unclean. All of this between the Jews and the Gentiles is all because the Jews decided themselves that the Gentiles were unclean. God never said that!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Jesse Greetings, Yes Rabbi's rules Jesus called them the commandments of men aka tradition of the elders and condemned them for it. Good point. Christ blasted them for this. Like the Noahide laws today.

    Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Hi Bob, thanks for sharing that. I will need to break this up in order to respond.

    I understand where you are coming from. I did not mention Acts 10:28, but I did take a closer look at it and this is my conclusion. Peter said, you know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come in unto one of another nation;

    I see Peter is referring to Gentiles, and he says it is unlawful for a Jew to keep company with a Gentile because the Jews considered them to be "unclean." Gentiles were even referred to as dogs.

    Here is something that is important for me in understanding this section of scripture. The word "unlawful" used in Verse 28 has nothing to do with the Torah, the Law given by God to the Jews. It has to do with going against Jewish customs.

    It's what is called "The Rabbi's Rules." I love The Rabbi's Rules! They came up with their own laws in light of God's laws. You might say isn't that kind of adding?
  • Javier Urena - in Reply on Mark 4
    If it is possible, I'll tell you when I get there :). (Hoping, that is if I make it). Learning and still learning. I believe that is has become simple to say if you believe in Jesus and believe He died for your sins one is forgiven (don't be mistaken, that is true). Paul, one of His messenger's also wrote that he died daily to gain Jesus. Rebuking his *what he believed was true, or his deception* way of living for Him.

    Yes it reads deception and not perception.

    Some to think about. May God bless many to have eyes to see that they may perceive and a heart to understand

    God bless:-)

    John 9: 41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth. Jesus performed many many miracles in front of the Pharisee Jews to verify his ministry, including raising the dead and healing the disabled. He gave sight to a man born blind who saw both physically and spiritually who Jesus was and acknowledged him. Even the blind man knew the miracles of Jesus came from above.

    Pharisee Jews saw the miracles and instead of believing in the ministry of Jesus, they choose to discredit him claiming his miracles were from the devil. Physically they could see, spiritually they were blind.

    John 10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

    Because the Pharisees had sight they were sinners already

    Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. All men are guilty of this?
  • Fred Scanlan on Acts 2
    Peter and others who were chosen,saw Christ before the day of Pentecost.Peter somehow has settled it in His heart that Christ has forgiven him for his denial,Christ giving Him authority to feed His sheep.Peter was certainly more than humbled by it all!The Jews are relentless towards him and his brothers in Christ. Claiming after they received the holy Ghost they were full of wine.Remember Peter has a temper.The first thing Peter does is convict them of their sin. He proclaims King Davids confession and its fulfillment!The very King David these Jews professed ,who's words have been fulfilled.Peter comes at them not with a sword,but with the word, they realize and confess their sin!The power in Peters words proved that indeed they had received the holy ghost.If your not convicted of sin and u don't have a need for confession, you are in the wrong church!The holy spirit moves and works in us through the word of God , moving us to confess ours sins one to another! Repent and be baptized!

    Matthew Chapter 12: 46 While he (Jesus) yet talked to the people, behold, [his] mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

    47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

    48 But he (Jesus) answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

    49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14:39
    I am not sure but a good guess would be his son Belshazzar in Daniel 5: 20 But when his (Nebuchadnezzar) heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:

    21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.

    22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this;

    23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them;

    That would be my guess
  • Jesse - in Reply on Hebrews 12
    She has nothing to fear as far as her salvation goes. In the human sense, a bastard is someone who has been born to parents out of wedlock. She is not at fault. The Jewish leaders even considered Jesus to be a bastard child because Mary was pregnant before the marriage became official. If you remember, Jesus told the religious leaders that "You are of your father the devil." Their response was "we be not born of fornication." You see, they considered Jesus to be an illegitimate child, or bastard. But we know better.

    As far as salvation goes, your granddaughter is safe. Spiritually, we cannot be bastard children, because we are born of God's Spirit. We are legitimate children of God, and He does not see us as bastards. We are God's children. He has given us to His Son. And Jesus promised us that all whom the Father has given to Him, He will not lose one, not a single one. That's Christ's promise to us. Your granddaughter needs to know that she is safe in His powerful grip. God bless!
