    1 John 4:4 begins with the testing of the spirits, as there are many that are in the world. The Spirit of God indwells every true born again believer, but other spirits can still have sway in believers' minds and lives. The apostle John here is both warning and encouraging his readers that God's Spirit in them will always lead them into Light and Truth, which is what Christ's servants, the apostles, were endeavouring to do. Yet there were many other voices trying to persuade and lead believers away from the Truth to believe lies as Truth; this, says John, are false spirits: the spirit of Anti-Christ. And don't we see so much of it today: sin clothed in the garb of goodness.

    Failure is due to the neglect of fineness, and success begins with the importance of small things
  • Chris on Genesis 5
    In the modern traditional understanding of 'pastoring', there were no women pastors in the Bible. However, in understanding the word, Pastor (as with apostles, prophets, evangelists, teachers), these were all gifts given by the Holy Spirit to certain believers (according to the Churches' need) for its support and edification. Pastor = Shepherd; so in a sense, you could have both genders fulfilling that role today, the women though limited to and having a special ministry to other women and children. Women have always had an important role in the Church, however, it was always the Elders and Deacons (brothers) that were appointed to be leaders/supporters in the Church.
  • The Lord's Supper was instituted so that as a Church, we could come together to remember him. If we consider the Lord and the apostles in the upper room and also the new fledgling Church, the remembrance of His death was always in the company of others, as they partook of the common bread and cup. I don't believe a leader in the Church has to necessarily be the convener and officiator at the Lord's Table; any brother could officiate. The point was that believers who got together to worship the Lord, also took time during their fellowship meal to remember Jesus' sacrifice. This could be done at home, but as an individual? This would appear pointless & suggest to receive a special blessing.
  • What do this story really do means??? 1-chronicles 16 VS 11 -12-13
  • Mick on Leviticus 13
    2 Thessalonians 2:3 ( the falling Away)

    1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (Satan) 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you
  • Andy on Revelation 6
    The locusts eat the crops which cause famines. The covid-19 virus is one of the pestilence that kills people all around the world because people in China eat the beasts of the fields (rats and bats). We are in the last days and on the threshold of Christs return. These are exciting times for the saved and scary for the lost. 🙏🏻 Amen
  • Mickey on Leviticus 13
    There actually are simple... Asherah, or Ashtoreth, was the name of the chief female deity worshiped in ancient Syria, Phoenicia, and Canaan. The Phoenicians called her Astarte, the Assyrians worshiped her as Ishtar, and the Philistines had a temple of Asherah (1 Samuel 31:10).

    Hence: Easter = Astarte
  • Mickey - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Find your favorite preacher on youtube to view some Revelation 12 teaching. You'll have to put the 12 in the search box. My personal favorite on revelation is Oral Roberts. I lived in Tulsa 3 yrs. People there made jokes about him every day mercilessly. One time he said something that caused huge uproar and the Christians said they were going to hide under rocks. Something boiled up in me (Holy Spirit) and I shouted, are you all going to turn on a brother?! Makes me think of apostle Paul. Everybody just kind of melted around a corner. We gotta stick together. (It was Jesus not me.) we don't get to shun...
  • Mickey - in Reply on Genesis 5
    All Christians are called to peace. Also, as much as is possible within you be at peace with everyone.
    Caution: do not tell little children who ended it. Not till their 30's.
    Personally, I think grounds for irreconcilable differences (as per Bible) is adultery (with either sex). and physical battery. I highly reccomend that you should seek Christian counciling first. Sometimes the couple can be reconciled to the marriage.
    My personal thought is don't marry unbelievers! God forbid the Jews/Israelites to intermarry with other tribes. He had a good reason for saying that (idolatry).
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 5
    No women pastors, however Deborah was a judge (leader) and prophetess. When the Lord can not find a man with a heart as pure as a woman the Lord can and does use a woman for his purpose.
    Judges Chapter 4: 3 And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel.

    4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.
    5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment. (she was the leader)
  • Mick - in Reply on Genesis 5
    I used to think Deborah and Esther were used to turn directions. What do you think Bob?
  • Mickey - in Reply on Psalms 2
    Nimrod just had too much money. What he meant for evil was altered to be a blessing. Imagine if the whole world didn't have diff. Customs, music, clothes, travel. We'd never go anywhere.
  • Mick on Psalms 19:13
    This is for everyone: we're not under the Law.
    However in Matthew chapter 5, Jesus reviewed some laws and stated some that are still in force. It's all in red ink, Folks. It's not meant to constrain, but to protect.
    What Jesus gave us was 2 new commandments.
  • Mick - in Reply on Habakkuk 3:5
    Yolanda: you put on Jesus Christ; the Son of God.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Noah didn't have anymore sons. Genesis 10. Generally daughters were not mentioned in recorded genealogy; unless in the genealogy that led to Jesus Christ or Son of man.
  • Ce - in Reply on Leviticus 27
    New Testament Scripture, "If you love Me, keep my Commandments" (John 14:15); in these types of discussions, in general, why aren't the two Great Commandments also mentioned since they are mentioned in the NT also? Getting tired, Are the 10 commandments part of the Mosaic Law and if so, then one must keep the whole law, true? If one lets God empower them to keep the two Great Commandments, will it cause them to obey the Ten Commandments also?
  • Andrew Azariah on 1 Corinthians 11:26
    Can one take communion at home ,individually or with family/friends apart from formal church gathering presided over by the elder/presbyter/pastor ?
  • Neil MacEwan on Matthew 1
    Re Matthew 1:17....the genealogy...start with Abraham as 1, Isaac 2, etc, and since there were 3 batches of 14, that would make Jesus the 42nd...but continue with the count suggested above...and you will find that Jesus is 41!.....?
    So there is a missing generation?
    Any thoughts on this?
    Who is the missing generator?
    I have an answer that satisfies me....but what say you?

  • Kevin Mack on Psalms 2
    Some things never change. Just like Nimrod who had the tower of babble built to try and take over Gods kingdom. Lie to the people of that time period and gave another reason why he wanted the tower built so he could have his way. he was the 1st.Freemason' that ever existed, he invented the craft, the whole doctrines from 1st.degree Mason to 99 degree Mason. Witchcraft to the max. He became very arrogant and thought he could win a war against the most high. Satan controlled him 100%. Centuries later year 2020 the same people, same luciferian spirit, same Freemason's, and illuminate members relatives are going to try it again ! Didn't learn a thing from the first failed attempt to take over.
  • Kim on Genesis 5
    Are there any women pastors in the Bible?
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 5
    My initial comment disappeared. I did state that a wife would not be required to remain with an abusive husband. Though both the OT and NT are silent on this aspect of marriage, largely because women in that era were expected to be in the background and suffer in silence, when a believing wife has to undergo such suffering, then the option remains open to leave. 1Cor7:13 speaks of a woman's choice to leave an unbelieving husband (no indication of abuse here). She is advised to remain in the marriage if the husband is pleased for it to continue. But if she chooses to leave (then read on in my next comment)....
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 5
    So this verse allows for the wife to leave her husband if he is unhappy with her (maybe because of her spirituality or references to his ungodliness), but v11 of the same chapter admonishes her, that if she were to leave, that she should remain unmarried. I understand that the Lord does not regard divorce after a lawful marriage but that the spouse is still married in the Eyes of the Lord. If he or she remarries, then adultery has been committed. So, I understand, that a wife can leave an abusive marriage but she should also choose to remain single.
  • Chris on Genesis 5
    If someone is suffering abuse in a marriage, I don't believe that the Lord would have that relationship continue. The Bible does not speak on this subject, as with the customs of that era, women generally remained silent in their suffering. The Bible does speak on divorce (both in the OT and NT) but not specifically on abuse in marriage. 1Cor7:13 refers to a Christian wife who is married to an unbeliever. The apostle urges her to not leave him if he is content to continue the relationship. And the blessings of that unequal yoke is described in v14. (see following comments).
  • ANGEL SERVANT on Isaiah 60
    In speaking concerning me, jesus...address me, jesus as i, and not i.

    i, know and see everything, for i'm, jesus am, omnipotent omnipresent and omniscient.

    satan its demons minions devils , & its chipmunks thinks it's so clever, but is not!!!.

    for, it is written...the biggest fool is a fool that continuesly fools themselves!!!.

    it is written ..the earth is the lord's and the fulness thereof. (Psalms 24; 1-3.)

    it is written...my spirit is just like the wind it goes wherever it wishes too. (John 3; 8
  • Gordon campbell on Genesis 10
    Did Noah have anymore children after getting off the ark?
  • Mickey - in Reply on Acts 12:4
    I read half of Lamentations night before last. God has bent over backwards to bless them. The apple of his eye. Known the world over as his peculiar people. The envy of the nations. It hurts me that they hurt Him. Resist Him. It gladdens me that many returning Jews that have been saved are evangelizing. Hard to do when you are sheltering from a viral pestilence. May be this disease is from the I WILL that is loose in the world? You can't read Lamentations and not miss the severity of emotion. The last grains of sand in an hour glass fall real fast. Makes me wonder? Let us all pray for a revival. Now when we are confined. I hope you will. Some of Stan Telchin's testimony is on YouTube.
  • Mary - in Reply on Hosea 6
    The word of God says we are His temple. His death did away with the need for an earthly temple.
  • Extra Extra Read All About It - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2:7
    There is several counterfeit CHRIST coming first to this Earth one to get the whole world to take that Mark for Peace & Safety ! That will not just give you grievous sore and make you like the walking dead, but damn your souls to Hell forever with them ! That place not originally prepared for us but the Fallen Angels for doing all this ! When beheading is going to be only other option for not taking that Mark ! Why Jesus already made that way, and even way of escape, from that hour that is coming to try the whole world but is not satans counterfeit/s coming to take the world souls if not their heads ! Revelation 13-22 Matthew 24 & Luke 21 & Revelation 6 & 2 Thessalonians 2 & Isaiah 14:9-17
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 70
    What exactly do you want to know about Revelation 12. My opinion is the woman is symbolically eve/ mary / church.
    most of the symbolism of revelation comes from the old testament. IF you have never read the entire Bible then the
    references to the symbolism makes no sense. hard to cover it all in 500 words of less.
