  • GG - in Reply on Psalms 91:2
    Well said Chris. God looks upon the hearts of men. It is hard for people of color,but it also hard for others as well. It is through these trials that God can perfect us,mold us , show us who He truly is. We must go through these trials and hardships but we must allow The Lord to guide us through.Remember friend, " trouble don't last always! "
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 26:2
    Grace - Q: Did Jesus take the Kingdom of God from the Jews?

    A: Matthew 21:43 - Therefore say I (Jesus speaking to the Jews) unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. So which language was the New Testament written in? GREEK.

    Why? King James Bible book of John 5:16 - And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. It was not the Romans who troubled Jesus.

    Jesus had it with their man made rules in Matthew 23:15 - Jesus speaks: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees (Jews) , hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. 2X the child of Hell does not sound very nice.

    no one can prove to me from the Bible alone that the family of Jesus called him Yeshua.

    Besides Rabbis called Jesus YESHU which is a curse meaning may his name be blotted out.

    Luke Chapter 1

    :26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

    27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name [was] Mary.

    28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

    29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

    30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

    31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

    (Angel Gabriel gave JESUS his name from the Lord)

    so what scriptural authority does anyone have to call him YESHUa?

    32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

    I believe the Bible is right Jesus is not in error.
  • LGSpears - in Reply on Revelation 21
    I greatly appreciate the thoughtful reply by Chris regarding the size of our New Heaven. I have looked more carefully at Revelation 21: vs 12, 16 & 17 & conclude the following: Vs. 12 plainly states, "And (the new heaven) had a wall GREAT and HIGH ----"; Vs. 16 last part says "The Length and the Breadth AND the Height of it are Equal;" then going to the first part it says "And the city lieth foursquare and thus the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, 12,000 furlongs (one furlong = 582 ft.).

    SO, Vs. 12 says the New Heaven would have both a great & high wall + Vs. 16 says the lg., breadth (width) & ht. of the walls are equal. These two statements rule out using the 144 cubit (210 ft.) measure for the height of the wall but instead limit it to the thickness; which does make sense because during this time period city walls where described by their heigth & thickness + their composition (for this wall it is jasper).

    Now one has to both read & think carefully. The first of Vs. 16 says the city is foursquare ( laid out in a square) with length = breadth/width and he measured the city with a reed and it was 12,000 furlongs. Now the question here is, what is 12,000 furlongs describing? One missing piece of info now is the perimeter around the city, which is provided by the stated 12,000 furlong measurement. Since the city is a square each wall must be 3,000 furlongs in lg. Then from the last portion of Vs. 16, we can conclude that since the lg., breadth and ht. are equal, that the ht. of the walls are also 3,000 furlongs or 1,746,000 feet or 331 miles.

    The above generates 2 interesting questions about the walls. The obvious first question is, why are the walls so high? How can a wall be that high and only 210 ft. thick, especially when you consider that it is made mainly of "jasper"(jasper is a brittle stone used for decrative objects).

    The above indicates that heaven should cover about 141,000 sq. miles or about 1/2 of Texas.

  • JIMMY L JOSEPH II on Acts 7:38
    The "church" is the people. They were referred to as the "congregation" in the old testament. The tabernacle or temple of the Lord is the physical location where they worshiped.

  • SC - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    I am not taking about all the false doctrine out there about female gods.Don't focus first on them by default. It a trick of the devil to deceive.

    I am taking about our creator, God. Genesis 1:26,27.

    That is the perfect order of a family. Father(Male), Mother(Female), then their Children.

    All of creation shows that order: Magnetic fields North (male)+South(female), plants(male+female), animals(male+female), mankind(male+female)

    Do not be deceive!

    The Book of Proverbs clearly tells us that, The Spirit of Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding is Female.The Holy Spirit is The Spirit of Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding. That's normal, a good thing,! Stop being offended by the nature of God, accept it and get over it!

    Promise is a covenant. How cool. Creator of whole universe remembers his promise everytime a rainbow appears. Read:Genesis 9:8-17
  • Lucinda - in Reply on Revelation 13
    Hi Jesse I agree with you 100% What we must remember is there is more than one dispensation and for us today we are under Grace. The law has been set aside. After the rapture that calls the Church, The Body of Christ, home then will the dispensation of the law return and then judgment and tribulation upon those who deny Christ. Those of us who have accepted the gift of Salvation through our Lord and Savior have nothing to fear for He has saved us not only from an eternity without him spent in Hell but also from the tribulation yet to come. God Bless!
  • Geoff on Revelation 19:20
    The full armament of God has the Shield of Faith and the Sword of the Word. In verse 21 it reads "which sword procedeeth our his mouth."Jesus is the word of God. (The living word). The word/sword came out of his mouth....The sharpest two-edged sword cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow...Words can cut. Jesus is at war, with our sins. That's why we need the armament of God. Our little corruptions adding up. Against ourselves, and against others, piling up. I have to remind myself about idle conversation and to say "yay yay or nay nay." What has struck me with the pandemic is the same conversations being held. On things like ESPN or the news. They have nothing to talk about. It's just speculation, nothing fruitful. Just filling airtime. I can't take it, I have to quit listening. Those words are fruitless. The news, I might as well go to Hardees at 6 am and listening the "chatter." And, those words are meant to divide. Not in the way Jesus's words are meant to divide. Divide us from our sin. Their words are meant to sell commercials and products, can't serve God and mammon both. How much of it is backbiting? Point is, there's words we should listen to and think about and meditate on. And, our words do matter. It's ok to be right about something and not voice it. (I don't remember which book, chapter or verse). Our job is to uplift people to God not turn them away with callous speech. In which I am guilty of and struggle with.
  • B B - in Reply on Revelation 16
    I keep thinking about the Angels of Revelations and the Vials that they pour out.

    All the Plagues, Wars, Earthquakes, Floods, Famines, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, etcetera were predicted by the author, was it John? on the island ?? It is certainly happening Now!! I am fournate that the Lord God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit are watching over Me and My Family in these Times.
  • Bryan on 2 Kings 2
    This whole chapter is a message: Elijah has been replaced by Elisha. Elisha's ministry is to bring salvation and then judgement. Just as Elijah's ministry foretells John the Baptist's ministry, his successor, Elisha, foreshadows John the Baptist's successor, Jesus.
  • Bryan on 2 Kings 2
    But Elisha does bring the promised judgement. Bethel is infamous for being the city where people rejected God and worshipped idols of golden calves in his place. Yet they seem to have escaped God's wrath. These children aren't just playfully insulting a stranger either. They say go up to refer to Elijah, they say bald head to refer to lepers. They are basically saying they reject God and his prophet in favour of their idols. And as God promised in Leviticus, rebellious children will be eaten by wild animals, so he sends covenant enforcing bears to finally deliver the judgement on Bethel he delayed so long.
  • Bryan Chua on 2 Kings 2
    Yet, now that he has replaced Elijah, the people still approach him in good faith, requesting his help. So the first thing he does is remove a curse from the waters of Jericho, waters that kill and poison the land. And this water was cursed by God himself, through Joshua when he cursed those that would rebuild Jericho (Joshua 6: 26). So this shows God is willing to forgive and bring salvation through Elisha.
  • Bryan on 2 Kings 2
    Elisha is not just any prophet either, but one of 3 assassins foretold to come from God. In fact the first time he is mentioned in the Bible, God says Elisha is meant to bring judgement and death. That was in 1 kings 19, when Elijah had just gotten the Baal worshipping people of Jericho to acknowledge God after the test at Mount Carmel, yet they still rebelled and threatened to kill Elijah.
  • Bryan on 2 Kings 2
    You have to read this in context.

    The whole of chapter 2 in Kings 2 is about the transition of Elijah to Elisha, as foretold.

    They journey in a specific order, from Gilgal, Bethel, Jericho and across the Jordan. This is the exact opposite order of how Joshua came to the promised land, indicating this is how Elijah leaves the promised land. Elisha is tested 3 times to stay but he follows Elijah, showing patient faith. Elijah does not admonish him because it really is a test of Elisha's faith, not Elisha disobeying Elijah. Elijah parts the river Jordan on his way out, and Elisha parts in on his way back, showing he has inherited Elijah spirit and power from God.
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 2
    In Deuteronomy 2:9 & 2:19, it shows the Moabites & Ammonites as children of Lot. And so they are because of the incest of Lot's two daughters with their father (the daughters husbands, as you know, were left behind in Sodom, because of their unbelief that God would destroy the city).

    And in 2:4, the children of Israel also had to "not meddle" with the children of Esau, as the Lord had given them land (Mt. Seir). And yes, Esau's descendants are the Edomites. So, I see the references to these three groups of people quite distinct & not confusing. Is this how you see it too?
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    The old testament is the preparation for the coming of Christ,the gospels are the manifestation of Christ,the Book of Acts is the propagation of what God has done through Christ,the epistles are the explanation of Christ's purpose, the Revelation is the consummation of God's plan through Christ.Read the gospels and see Christ,as he said,"he that hath seen me,hath seen the Father. John contains material not found in the other three gospels.No matter where you start,ask God to help you understand.
  • Mishael on New Jerusalem on Matthew 6:29
    I'm going to tell a little testimony/ story about my son when he was 8.

    He blurted out to me he didn't want to go to heaven if they didn't have pizza. He was really upset.

    I ask questions to nail down objections. So I asked him if he ever noticed how many different kinds of trees were around? Yes.

    Butterflies, puppies, kittens, flowers? Bugs, birds, rocks, mountains and lakes; games we all loved to play, music, and the list grew long. He loved all those things.

    I said that is how God feels too. He loves varieties, differences, colors, shapes. It's never boring; there's always more to see and experience; embrace.

    It follows that New Jerusalem will be similar.

    It will be a place we all love and call our home.

    My hope: it's not like it is here now. Oh yeah... there will be pizza in heaven :)
