    Hello Robert,

    Genesis 1:26

    And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
  • Whit witherspoon - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    Thankyou Chris, you truly are a great student of the Bible and skillful writer. I have always tried to remember pertinent lines from the Bible cause it may keep me from being very upset. Thankyou very much for comments sir!

    There was a widower woman

    Whom was poor but she gave into the lord one pence. Today if everyone paid their tides we need welfare or big government. Instead the community who take care of their Sisters and Brother's.
  • Patty Tozi on Luke 6
    How quiet the world is before the true outcome that is going to happen. Where is the Love of others from their heart as before. I wish l knew. Their minds on their problems or their greed. Waxed cold in these days. Hurting of kids and animals. Selfish love of self. Uncaring feelings of others. Poor Jesus how He must of felt when He walked this Earth. He wanted the best...but got the worse of mankind. Always fighting Satan. Going to the Father for help. He carried on in His days serving others. So strong in His Love for others before His self. Do you know the Strength of True Love when it comes to you? I do..

    Jesus showed me long ago...l will never forget it....NEVER!!!

    Jeremiah 32:42: "For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.", I think is the verse you're thinking of - very good memory you have there, Whit!

    Tis true, even the mistreated dog will crawl back to his master & hopefully that will soften the master's heart & the dog will receive a loving reception. Yet, we know that whatever & however life throws curved balls at us, our Master will always be there with open arms & a loving embrace. Continue to enjoy your Master's Love & Healing in every area of your life.

    Hi Donna,

    I also believe that we should be led by the Holy Spirit, but I'm not sure if my gut instincts is the Holy Spirit or whether I'm being deceived by a religious spirit because I have only been a believer for less than three years, and also everyone around me thinks that I'm the one in error which doesn't help the situation.

    Thank you for your encouragement and the scriptures that you suggested. I will study them and ask for guidance in prayer.

    God bless you and your family.

    Kind Regards

  • Fred Scanlan on John 8
    Christ spent the night in the mount of Olives. He has indeed no where to lay his head, the animals have more comfort than he has. The church , not unlike today wants nothing more than to take away Christs diety. They will do anything to discredit the life of Christ and his universal judgment of sin. He has this authority given to him by His Father .These who would use the sin of others , who by the way , was no coincidence, of being found in adultery. If in fact these

    judgmenters knew these couples sin could have more than once before judged them already , but would not for who what reasons? As said Christ ,"He who is without sin among you"? Christ has well pronounced them as liars. And they are as their fathers. Just the way they laid it out there for Christ, Christ gave it right back at them! WITH AUTHORITY!
  • Claire - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi Ss,

    I agree, but feel I will fall into error if I stop going to church because nobody around me are Christians, which already causes problems.

    God bless you and your family.

    Kind Regards

  • Karen on Matthew 5
    When someone asks me to pray about something and I know he is living in sin, how should I pray. Does God hear my prayers for that person.
  • Claire - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your words of encouragement. I know that no church is perfect. I left my old church because most people read different bible's and I had concerns about a few things, but when I told my pastor, he just fobbed me off. A couple of my friends from that church had similar experiences with him too. One of them now goes to another church, but the other one is still there. I told the pastor about a guy called Doc Marquis that was raised in an Illuminati family, but became a Christian in 1979 and dedicated his life to expose the truth about "America's Occult Holidays", like Christmas, Easter, Halloween, but he just said that I shouldn't believe everything that I listen to online, and to not to share this info with anyone at church because everyone celebrates them holidays and that they would be offended by it. I had similar experiences when I told him about a guy called Adam Johnson who made a DVD called "King James ? Or 400 Counterfeits ?" but he fobbed me off on this too. I tried to inform him about a few other things too, but then gave up and joined the church that I'm at now. Everyone reads the KJV bible there, so that gave me a bit of peace, but they still celebrate the holidays which concerns me. I have told the pastors there too but they just fob me off too, and told me not to share this info.

    I know what you mean about the bible study needing someone mature in the faith because me and the new woman tried to do our own bible study, but she doesn't know the bible that well, so every time I told her scriptures from the bible, if she didn't agree with it, she would get angry with me. I try to keep my distance from her now because I feel like she's affecting my progress and my well being, and I have enough trouble with this with my mum and my daughter at home being non Christians.

    God bless you and your family.

    Kind Regards

  • Mishael Romans 515 - in Reply on Romans 5
    I looked this up in this website's Commentary Search Box.

    People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:15

    Romans 5:15 But not as the offence, so also [is] the free gift. While Adam is a type of Christ, there is a great difference. One kills, the other makes alive. "If through the sins of the one the many (the world of mankind) died", through the gracious gift of God, through one man, Jesus Christ, life has been given to the many. All will be raised at the last day.
  • Daniel Smallwood on John 15:19
    When I read the words.."If ye were of the world, the world would love his own" I hear the devil in replace of "his". For I know the world we live in is the devils.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 5
    Thanks Richard! What a wonderful passage to start my day with.
  • Robert Hanna on Genesis 1
    I've been trying to find "We created you in our own image" in the Bible but have had no luck! A friend and I have been discussing this. We think that it is somewhere in Genesis. I believe that the 'We' is Jesus and the Lord or God. Help please!
  • Whit witherspoon - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    That was very beautifully put Chris. Like I said before, sometimes I feel like the dog that has been raised by his master all his life and cannot hate his master even after the most horrible beating imaginable, which is what I call UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Where is the dog to go because there is only one master. Not only is it love but you can throw respect and fear in there too. The master is the one with the sustenance of life, food, water, shelter and companionship. I have been that dog before on several occasions. I am not certain about the reference chapter and verse of this quote but I remember reading it, "And because I have brought all this evil upon them I shall surely render unto them all the good which I have promised." I am certain that my mother will find many mercies in her next destination and probably already has. I loved her dearly along with my Dad. He was close to the Lord and was really LUCKY to die in his sleep. Loving, fearing and respecting the Lord are true keys to a happy life.

  • Anthony Ritchie on John 1:37
    John says that Andrew followed him and told Simon Peter about him and they followed him.

    The other scriptures say they were in a boat and he called them and they immediately left the boat and followed him. How do these relate to aone another?

  • Meaning of Eunoch on Revelation 12
    This is all I could find for Eunoch:

    E is for empathy, and your consideration for the feelings of others

    U is for unique, your love of life.

    N is for neighborly, friendly to all acquaintances

    O is for ornate, nothing plain here!

    C is for casual, no pretension here.

    H is for hope, the encouragement you give.

    Sweet but non-BIBLICAL

  • Mishael - in Reply on Jeremiah 34:19
    Matthew 19:12

    For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

    Google, history of word, eunochs and see if anything comes up?

    Wesley's Notes for Matthew 5

    5:3 Happy are the POOR - In the following discourse there is, A sweet invitation to true holiness and happiness, ver. 3 - 12. Matthew 5:3-12. A persuasive to impart it to others, ver. 13 - 16. Matthew 5:13-16. A description of true Christian holiness, ver. 17; chap.v7:12, Matthew 5:17; Matthew 7:12. (in which it is easy to observe, the latter part exactly answers the former.) The conclusion: giving a sure mark of the true way, warning against false prophets, exhorting to follow after holiness.

    The POOR in spirit - They who are unfeignedly penitent, they who are truly convinced of sin; who see and feel the state they are in by nature, being deeply sensible of their sinfulness, guiltiness, helplessness. For theirs is the kingdom of heaven - The present inward kingdom: righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost, as well as the eternal kingdom, if they endure to the end. Luke 6:20.

    People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:3

    Matthew 5:3 Blessed. There follows nine beatitudes, each of which pronounces a blessing upon those who have certain characteristics. The word "blessed" is first applied to God, and means more than "happy", as it has sometimes been translated. Happiness comes from earthly things; blessedness comes from God. It is not bestowed arbitrarily; a reason follows each beatitude. The POOR in spirit. The humble, in contrast with the haughty; those sensible of spiritual destitution. The same state of mind is referred to when he speaks elsewhere of a contrite and broken spirit. Is the kingdom of heaven. Such shall become members of the kingdom that Christ will establish. The Jews rejected from this kingdom; on account of their spiritual pride.

    All my life, I relied on taking a new car to a top notch Mechanic to check that car out. It will save you lots of money.

    Buy a car that a mechanic highly recommends.

    This is for free; even for dating: don't get wowed over appearance. Look for durable and dependable.

    Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 18:9

    Like portions - With their brethren who were in actual ministration: as they share with them in the work, so shall they in the encouragements. Beside that which cometh - The reason of this law was, because he that waited on the altar, ought to live by the altar: and because it was fit he should keep his money, wherewith he might redeem what he sold, if afterwards he saw occasion for it. Mr. Henry adds a remarkable note here: especially considering he wrote threescore years ago. A hearty, pious zeal to serve God and his church, tho' it may a little encroach upon a settled order, and there may be somewhat in it that looks irregular, yet ought to be gratified, and not discouraged. He that loves dearly to be employed in the service of the sanctuary: in God's name let him minster. He shall be as welcome to God as the Levites, whose course it was to minister, and should be so to them.

    18:10 Useth divination - Foretelleth things secret or to come, by unlawful arts and practices. An observer of times - Superstitiously pronouncing some days lucky, and others unlucky. Or, an observer of the clouds or heavens, one that divineth by the motions of the clouds, by the stars, or by the flying or chattering of birds, all which Heathens used to observe. An enchanter - Or, a conjurer , that discovers hidden things by a superstitious use of words or ceremonies, by observation of water or smoke or any contingencies. A witch - One that is in covenant with the devil.

    18:11 A charmer - One that charmeth serpents or other cattle. Or, a fortune - teller, that foretelleth the events of men's lives by the conjunctions of the stars. Spirits - Whom they call upon by certain words or rites. A wizard - Heb. a knowing man, who by any forbidden way's undertakes the revelation of secret things. A necromancer - One that calleth up and enquireth of the dead.

  • Phillip E Gallegos on Revelation 17
    Jerusalem, the center of the rising world order to be built by Satan. Why is Jerusalem gone or going unjust? Remember what Christ said to the church of of Syrmna Revelation 2; And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

    9I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." The current state of Israel I believe has fallen to the false leaders of the faith of Judaism who can be traced back to being the seed or decendants of Cain. The base of Judaism, I believe, do not believe that Christ, the word of God made flesh was God and they do not believe that Yahoshua was fulfilling the prophesy of the 1st coming of the Messiach. The base for the religion believes that their mashiach is a decendent of King David and is a mortal man. Mystery Babylon, Babylon meaning = confusion.

    I do not believe the state of Israel is representative of the nation of Israel, the 12 tribes. The lost sheep of the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel is in the world, one nation of many, the most powerful country in the world under God, but as in the old testament Israel has lost their way to corruption, false religious doctrines, fornication of idolotry, unclean sexual acts and has broken every single commandment and edict demanded by God. Although, as written there remains a remnant of those who's names are written in the Lamb's book of life from before this world was created......the Elect of God Almighty.

    "As for the other people which also come of Adam, thou hast said that they are nothing, but be like vnto spittle, and hast likened the abundance of them vnto a drop that falleth from a vessell." God does not care for the other nation because he will return for his lost Tribes

  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 6
    Hi Kenneth, thank you for visiting & writing in here. Yes, growing up in the world, or even in school, as a Christian is very difficult indeed. We have all sorts of temptations & pressures to conform to what the majority do and think & we know that is not what God has planned for His children. When I was 14 yrs old, I too could find no one at school who believed in God & Jesus as I was taught at home - fortunately, my family loved the Lord & brought me up to read the Bible & obey God's directions.

    In your time of prayer, ask God to give you some good friends, especially someone who knows Jesus personally. And even with other friends, you can still be the Light that God needs to shine His Love to them - and God puts His Light in so many different places so that people might hear the Good News that Jesus saves us from sin's penalty. Yes, your friends will notice the difference in you & even if they think less of you, your genuine love & friendship for them will show them Who God is & what a true friendship is all about.

    So be encouraged Kenneth, stay close to the Lord, read His Word often, & talk to Him when you feel alone or when you are misunderstood by those you care for. He will bless you & use you in special ways - ways that you may not even be conscious of. All that God asks of us His children, is to be His "salt & light" to the world (Matthew 5:13, 14). But if you feel alone or want to ask a question or have a chat, we would be delighted to see you again. May the Lord bless you richly.
  • Richard in Christ on Genesis 5
    Hello my brothers and sisters,

    Our Eternal Father loves us all so much. Keep your faith in Him. He will never leave you. Trust in Him to know what is best for you as He knows everything. Trust proves love.

    "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Jesus Christ died for us."

    "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God.

    For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

    The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

    And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

    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."

    "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

    But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

    We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

    Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

    Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus be made manifest in our body."

    "Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

    Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:"

    "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you."

    You are all in my prayers. "Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." God Bless everyone!
