  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Here, again, Christ encourages His followers to keep their "hearts" from fear and trouble. This repeats the statement Jesus used to start this message (John 14:1), immediately after predicting Peter's cowardice (John 13:38). Here, again, scholars suggest that Jesus is distinguishing between being troubled in one's "spirit," meaning pain and unhappiness, as opposed to being troubled in one's "heart," meaning fear and despair. Jesus was said to have a troubled spirit, at times (John 11:33; 13:21). What He calls for here is not for Christians to be stone-faced and inhuman. Rather, it's to acknowledge the reality of suffering while at the same time trusting in God to make good on His promises.
  • GOING DEEPER IN JESUS - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    In John 16, Nicodemus asked Jesus the same question.

    An authentic born again experience, means receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

    John 16 ,teaches what all that entails: what the Holy Spirits Ministry is, towards New Believers. He protects the new birth and teaches it about Jesus. You can go as deeply, as you desire the sincere milk of Gods Word (the Holy Bible). We're encouraged to desire the Meat of scripture.

    A lot of Christians just want the basic fire insurance. Enough to keep them out of hell.

    A true believer wants the Whole Life of Jesus insurance policy with all the bells and whistles. They jump in feet first, and get Jesus all over them: and want more and more. They follow Jesus and read His Word every day of their lives. They tell others about Jesus! They are excited.

    They're "all in". None of that one foot in the worldly world, and the other foot on Jesus.

    There was a great song called, Love God, Hate Sin. If we don't sink our little baby Christian roots deep into Jesus, first big wind of persecution will blow you away.

    Go look at That Godhead post I just posted. Why wouldn't you want to worship, adore and serve, those three persons who created all we see and know about? Romans 1

    If you don't read your Bible with the Holy Spirit at your elbow... the Bible is just a book that doesn't speak back to you.

    So, how deep do you want to go?

  • Samuel Garcia - in Reply on Revelation 13:15
    If you believe that Jesus Christ (Or whatever you call him) is not the Messiah, Then you my friend are set up to accept the false Messiah, Satan. Most Jews rejected Him the first time he came. So they will believe the lie the second time he comes in his glory. tHEY WILL BELIEVE THE FALSE MESSIAH SATAN and make a covenant with him which he will break in the middle of the 7 year period of time spoken of in Daniel. Jehovah's dealing with Isreal in this time of trouble will come to an end in the last half of the seven years.
  • HARMONY OF THE GOSPELS - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    If you had read those books and passages you would have seen that the 4 Disciples had been present with Jesus in all of His Ministry. The title, Apostles, means that person had witnessed Jesus Alive.

    To deny it, is a perfect example of what an antichrist spirit looks like. You can't dispute: With what, IT IS WRITTEN.

    Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, are known as the Harmony Of The Gospels. All four men witnessed the same events.

    The Godhead Scriptures

    Acts 17

    29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the GODHEAD is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

    30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:


    Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7

    1 John 5:7.

    John 10:30, I and My Father are one.

    My favorite is Malachi 3:16-17. God listens when we talk together abut Him.

    Also, in these following scriptures , we clearly see the Godhead (Acts 17:27-30) speaking to each other.

    NOTE: In the King James Bible, the words , TRINITY and TRIUNE,

    ARE NOT used!!! Someone who was unable to teach LET US as a lesson, used these other words to describe, Three.

    If you had used the Search Box provided on this website you would have seen it come up with NOTHING for triune and Trinity. No further comment is needed.

  • Kevin mack on Psalms 34
    To William M Patterson : verse two is referring to the Holy Spirit, the holy spirit is referred to being the female part of God. In old times it was the mother in the family that taught the children their (ABC) at the kitchen table. So likewise in God's kingdom. Read proverbs, when teaching is involved in scriptures, the word her appears alot.
  • Freda - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Thank you Frank for your encouraging words. .I always seek God first when I'm praying. His holy word also says to keep praying until your answer comes. Have a blessed day & a blessed Labor Day
  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:7
    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    Praise God we have been washed clean by the precious blood of Jesus and are now totally sanctified, justified & redeemed because of the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 1:29-30 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. That is what Christ has done for us, in us and who we are in Jesus Christ. What Glorious Salvation.
  • Becky on Psalms 94
    Matthew Henry devoted most of his life to commenting on every verse of the Bible. He died fairly young at about 55 from I believe a cardiac event. I read his commentary after almost every scripture.

    His comment on the next psalm is relevant to Real Life's and Charles Pineda's comments.

    Matthew Henry said:

    "7-11 Christ calls upon his people to hear his voice. You call him Master, or Lord; then be his willing, obedient people. Hear the voice of his doctrine, of his law, and in both, of his Spirit: hear and heed; hear and yield. Christ's voice must be heard to-day. This day of opportunity will not last always; improve it while it is called to-day. Hearing the voice of Christ is the same with believing. Hardness of heart is at the bottom of all distrust of the Lord. The sins of others ought to be warnings to us not to tread in their steps. The murmurings of Israel were written for our admonition. God is not subject to such passions as we are; but he is very angry at sin and sinners. That certainly is evil, which deserves such a recompence; and his threatenings are as sure as his promises. Let us be aware of the evils of our hearts, which lead us to wander from the Lord. There is a rest ordained for believers, the rest of everlasting refreshment, begun in this life, and perfected in the life to come. This is the rest which God calls his rest."

    We should heed his comments or at least certainly consider them.
  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:16
    What does 1 Corinthians 6:18 mean?

    In the Greco-Roman, idol-worshiping culture of Paul's day, sex of all kinds had been normalized for nearly everyone. That included prostitution, adultery, pedophilia, homosexuality, and so forth. Growing up in this environment, it's not surprising to think some of the Christians in Corinth had trouble seeing sex outside of marriage as a big deal. Paul has spent this chapter showing why avoiding sexual immorality is so essential for believers.

    Now he gives them a strategy for dealing with it: run. He tells them to flee from sexual immorality. Run away like you are escaping from something that might harm you, because it will. Even if the culture despises you for it, it's better to escape from sexual sin than to be conquered by it (Genesis 39:7-12).

    Paul shows that sexual immorality is different from other kinds of sin because it's a form of self-harm. We might commit other sins with our bodies, but sexual immorality unites us sinfully with another person. This happens on a deeply physical and spiritual level. We will experience the natural consequences of that sin at that deep level, as well.

    It's important to note that Paul did not write that sexual immorality is the worst of all sins, as we sometimes conclude. Instead, he is combatting the casual attitude toward sexual sin carried by some Christians in hyper-sexualized cultures. In addition to hurting others, sexual immorality contributes to our own deep pain. It's no more or less a sin than any other, but human cultures tend to treat it more casually than other errors. Galatians 6:7-16 King James Version (KJV) 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Now please know that I believe that every sin is forgiven by God through Jesus Christ & his atoning death on the cross. I John 1:9 KJV
  • Becky - in Reply on Psalms 94
    To Real Life Game of Thrones and Charles Pineda,

    I so appreciate your comments. To Real Life, I have wondered if the Covid pandemic, earthquakes, locusts in I believe southern Africa recently are an expression of God's displeasure and an encouragement for all lambs to get back to what matters and that is doing God's will and learning to hear him and stop sinning though we are sinful creatures.

    The Dems don't seem to think properly. Too loose on morals and not aligned with scripture in my opinion.

    This is certainly a unique time in the history of this Earth. Rome and Greece probably never thought they would end but they did. Likely same with the Aztec people.

    I think, I could be wrong, but these powerful cultures were around for about 500 years. A drop in the bucket of time compared to eternity.

    Being ready to go to me means being ready to go as in "to the next life".

    Make the effort to hear His will and to do His will. Pray, have conversations with God, know this---He does not stray, He is always with us. We are the ones that stray like toddlers who think they are fine without their parent toddling off to far away.

    God bless all His lambs and I pray we hear Your will.

    Thank you Real Life and Charles. And Real Life, it must be hard to have the visions because this where we are is the Devil's playground as he moves to and fro searching to steal, kill and destroy God's lambs. It would be hard to see.
  • Adam - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 8:19
    Hi Earl, looks like you were viewing that page which is why it says 'on' in your comment. So, maybe you answered your own question?
  • Earl Jackson on Ecclesiasticus 8:19
    How come King Janes bible dont have ecclesiastcus?
  • Paul Davidson on Hebrews 3
    What we all need to remember is not our salvation!!

    The Lord saves us when we come to Him as broken repentant sinners and as someone mentioned above we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise Ephesians 1:13.

    Someone else mentions Judas Iscariot. I don't believe he had the holy spirit, I believe he is the son of perdition and remember Jesus says about whoever he will touch with the "sop", interesting initials.

    We are part of the body of Christ if we are truly saved. Do you really think He will amputate us if we commit a certain number of sins and cause us to lose the salvation that He has given us. It isn't ours, it's His free gift to us.

    Remember too that when Judas killed himself Jesus hadn't died so the new testament and the new dispensation of the church age where we have eternal security hadn't come into place. They didn't have eternal security during the time of the old testament, remember how the Holy Spirit left Saul. It also left Samson but came back to him. I truly believe that the books of Hebrews especially and also James are written to Jews during the time of Jacob's trouble, which hasn't happened yet, because the body of Christ won't be there, we will have left to be with the Lord, see 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18. It is so important to rightly divide the word of God as it is all writted to us, but not all of it for us 2 Timothy 2:15. If we don't rightly divide it that's when we make a mess of it and start thinking parts contradict other parts when they don't. I praise the Lord for showing me this.
  • FELTON R WILSON on Hebrews 10
    Of the books of Matthew,Mark,Luke or John did any of them hear Jesus preach?
  • Bob Grove on Jude 1:14
    Jude verse 3 plainly states that the FAITH was once delivered unto the NT saints , this is the Doctrine of Christ and of the Apostles.

    Nothing more is needed .

    2 Timothy 3 . 16 Confirms this .

    My question is where is the Trinity doctrine found in the bible ?

    This is the actual teaching and importance to follow the teaching .

    Who said it in the Bible .

    Yes we know that Jesus is one with the father . As he said he came from God , the Son of God come in the flesh . and never sinned as a man . He was the first of His kind , . That's not my question.

    Thanks I will wait .

  • WESLEY J BARNARD on Habakkuk 2
    Here Christ is explaining the he has come to teach the pure truth or 'new wine'. In order to preserve this 'new wine' the Jews had to let go of the 'old wineskins' or traditional teachings of Judaism. Judaism is a manmade religion created while the Jews were in captivity in Babylon 500 years before the coming of Christ. When Christ arrived he exposed their religion as false in Matthew 23. It was false because it led the people away from the Word of God. Christ's teachings or 'new wine' led the people back to the Word, but this created a dilemma for the people. They could not preserve Christ's teachings while clinging to Judaism or the 'old wineskins'.

    The lesson here is we have to abandon the false teachings of these man-made religions, pray for Holy Spirit to guide our minds to the spiritual truths of the Word. Yes, we might need some guidance for understanding, but ultimately we must rely on Holy Spirit to elevate our minds to the spiritual level of Christ's teachings. I pray this is helpful to you. Shalom.

    Thank you Chris! Christian practice is on my heart and mind this morning. God bless the doctrines of Christ producing peaceable living fruit in our lives in practice. We are weak but the Lord, the Lamb of God is a strong deliverer. That we truly follow him all the days of our life. Keep the faith.

    Thank you for your great love and blessingover our lives. Thank you that your favor has no end, but it lasts for our entire lifetime.

We ask that we would walk in your blessingand goodness today.That your face would shine on us.

    That you would open the right doors for our lives and for our loved ones, that you would close the wrong doors and protect us from those we need to walk away from. Protect us, also from sickness and disease in this time of pandemic. Strengthen our hearts to trust in only You for our help.

    In Jesus' Name, Amen.

    Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

    For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

    (Mishael) I agree with you in prayer for these things you have asked for. I speak comfort over the changes you are experiencing and ask the Lord to restore to you a new hope and purpose for your life. Be lifted in the spirit of your mind. In Jesus name, so be it done.
  • Andy G van den Berg on 1 Corinthians 15
    On 1 Cor. 15:33

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Revelation 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and overcome this world (1 John 5:4).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It should be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

  • Fox News Coverage Praise Jesus on Deuteronomy 30:19
    Thousands of Christians gathered outdoors in Portland on Saturday to sing spiritual music amid the state's coronavirus social distancing measures-just hours before a riot was declared across town and a separate crowd lit fire to the city police union headquarters.

    Worshippers met in Waterfront Park on Saturday evening for an event dubbed "Riots to Revival." Controversial Christian musician Sean Feucht, who has hosted similar gatherings on California beaches amid COVID-19 restrictions, led the crowd in song and some were even baptized. Most people flouted social distancing and did not wear masks or facial coverings, KGW reported.

    "I'm excited to share with you some good news from Portland. Last night, we gathered thousands of people that came together," Feucht told "Fox & Friends Weekend" Sunday morning.


    "White, Black, Hispanic - we came and released our song of hope over this city. People gave their life to Jesus. Hundreds of people -- We baptized people in the river behind us. There was so much joy that took over the streets of that city last night."

    Feucht estimated between 4,000 and 7,000 people attended the massive outdoor church service that happened just blocks away from the federal courthouse and acted as a counter-protest to bring worship, prayer, and acts of kindness to Portland. Only 600 people responded to a Facebook event to say they would attend.
  • Part 3 NEW MOVE OF GOD - in Reply on Mark 2
    Praise and worship are key in Old Testament wars. Read over in Chronicles about King David. That's how we do it. The Holy Spirit is ready to bestow His gifts, for ministry. You have to pray, ask, And receive. Then study what that gift is for. Again.. read your Bible. Get a Strongs Concordance. It's faster.

    This is living Church outside the walls guys; gals. Our government is going to try to distract us by removing our statues (to demoralize us.) They are going to persecute the church for being resistant to gay agendas, abortion agendas, racial agendas, co-Ed school agendas: they have all these strategies to divide us and keep us in little boxes.

    These days are truly the last days. Our target is to pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send Workers into that Harvest, to COMPEL the unsaved to come to Jesus now. Before it's to late. This door of opportunity will be closed by the Rapture (caught up into the clouds). Don't get hung up on rapture not being a Bible word.

    1 Thessalonians 4:17 Is the correct name to Google. 2 Peter 3:12, BE LOOKING FOR JESUS. Stop arguing about this, ok?

    If you aren't looking up for Jesus, then you my friend are a Sadducee. They didn't believe in the Resurrection so they are "sad you see"... awaiting hell.

    Read the Gospels and memorize how Jesus taught his disciples. Google the stories of people that are evangelizing in beautiful orderly crowds; witnessing to people they meet.

    Be encouraged. You are truly seeing God do something new. If you don't sense that trumpet call in your spirit? Maybe turn off the tv and really start seeking Jesus's direction for you. If your mind feels kinda cloudy when you read the Bible, it may be hindering and harassing demons spirits. Bind them and cast them into outer darkness, in Jesus name. Keep it up till they give up and move on to something easier.

    We win! Jesus is with us. He will protect us with angelic protection. Don't focus on anything other than JESUS.
