  • JaymeImes on Revelation 13:3
    Well I'm a person in a Christian school and in seventh grade and I'm not the best person to be around and I've been learning from my teachers so much so I have decided I'm gonna read the Bible cause I got to thinking about how I could die at any time and I want to be ready for death so I chose this bible and by far this bible really helps me understand cause it's not hard to read it's understandable and makes it really easy for me to learn the word of god so I highly recommend this bible to everyone and the trivia really helps me remember what I learned.

    Great chapter , but let's see a doctrine that makes Jesus God not the Son of God !
  • Rob on Matthew 17:5
    Matthew 17 v 5

    Another witness of God the father of Who Jesus is , His Son .

    So is Jesus God the son ? Never mention in scriptures, not even by Jesus or God himself .

    Jesus called God father , and God says by Witness that Jesus is his Son . This is the record do you believe Gods witness ? Or men's doctrines on who Jesus is ?

    For me it's a closed case .

    Jesus is the Son of God .
  • Goldberg Johnson on 1 Corinthians 3:14
    Is weed sin or not
  • Rob on Mark 1
    Mark 1 v11

    Another recorded witness Of God the father testimony of Jesus !

    This is as good as it gets on who Jesus born in Bethlehem is !

    Anyone what to challenge God ?

    Think twice .
  • Rob on Matthew 3
    Mathew chapter 3 v17

    So here we a 1 recorded witness of God and there are others they all say the same , This is His Son .

    Where does God say by witness anything other than this is His Son ?

    Attempt all you want you will never find it unless you can not hear the truth , I do understand some will never truth because they don't have ears to hear . Like the Pharisees they are still among us .
  • David Brown on Psalms 46:4
    River of living water...Praise God!! In this let us be glad and rejoice.
  • Gontran archer on Isaiah 54:5
    Is it true that the greek version of this passage grammatically follow after the Hebrew version where a subject can be plural and the following verb is singular like ELOHIM created.... plural subject created and following verb is singular?
  • Being Critical on Revelation 12
    Hebrews 10

    23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised

    24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

    25 Not forsaking the ASSEMBLING of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

    Comment By Mishael:

    Verse 25 is talking about going to Church; and it clearly tells us why we do that. If Almighty God is telling us to go to Church, I'm sure it means He will keep us from getting the virus. But it's up to each individual to practice safety if they want to.

    Why do we go to Church? It is more than seeing what people are wearing, or critiquing the praise and worship songs, or Who's there and who's a "no show." How truly petty and carnal.

    We are there to fellowship, share a testimony of how God has blessed you that week; or someone you know. If people are fearful, then YOU pray for God to meet their needs. Have something positive to say. Exhort each other that Jesus is returning soon.

    Do we think that Moses had time to stop and share with frightened people crossing a sea bed fleeing from Pharaoh? God told him to get up Front do the people could see him.

    Church is FAMILY. It's not Facebook or twitter or fake media; they will gossip as soon as your back is turned.

    We need to read ALL of Hebrews 10.

    Only a soldier whose been on a battlefield knows what I am saying: NO SOLDIER LEFT BEHIND !!! You pick them up and get them to safety.

    The Christian Church in China is having their churches SHUT DOWN. You can't have church in your home. They confiscate all christian literature and destroy it. Now they are giving $30,000 fines to Christians who do not obey. Your athiest neighbors rat you out to authorities. China cops are installing surveillance cameras in private homes on repeat offenders.

    Be a blessing to those that may be scared and need encouragement.
  • Rob on 1 John 5
    1 John 4 verse 9

    God Gave witness about His Son Jesus and this witness is greater than any compilation of men's attempt to explain Jesus .

    So who do you believe reader Gods witness or men's attempt to explain who Jesus is ?

    When Did God give witness? I can recall because it's recorded by those that witnessed it .

    One of the qualifications for Judas replacement was that he had to be present at the baptism of Jesus . To be a witness of God s witness of his Only begotten Son norm in Bethlehem, Jesus .

    On the mount transfiguration again God gave witness, what did God say ? Read it ! Believe it !

    Read the whole chapter of 1 John 4 , keep things in context , don't cherry pick from all over the scriptures and form a doctrine .

    A doctrine is in its own context .

    May the truth set you free !

  • Sj on Genesis 1:26
    Here God makes everything good and he blesses.God's word is so powerful it creates. God's spoken word was disobeyed. The Word became flesh to save us.

    King James Bible

    Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. You have to be born again and be a doer of the word to bless our offenders and love the law to not be offended.

    Disobedience brought down the human race. Obedience brought man back to God and in the name of Jesus you can come to God. Being a doer of the word is powerful.

    Satan comes to take our eyes off the word of God and go by our carnal eyes. We need to hunger and thirst for righteousness. Matthew 22:36-40

    King James Version

    36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

    37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

    38 This is the first and great commandment.

    39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

    40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    Love is powerful. God is love.
  • Rob - in Reply on Song of Solomon 4
    So Chris you don't except Gods witness that Jesus is his Son ?

    Show me a verse tha God says other wise !

    At Jesus baptism and on the transfiguration before many witness this is recorded in the scriptures!

    You prefer a doctrine of scriptures made by men .

    Where is the doctrine in the scriptures? Of what you preach about Jesus ? Thanks I'll wait

    Regarding sin.....no one is without fault, therefor do not deceive yourself.

    John1 7:10

    7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    I understand the concept about the laws being written upon our hearts, & many more directions of the Spirit to us, & to know them & do them to God's Glory, but I feel like I struggle to live up to God's expectations. I feel like I'm destined to join the goats at this point instead of the sheep. Thank you for suggesting the Spurgeon.org site. I will check it out & let you know what I think. My younger pastor has mention Spurgeon before saying he was a good preacher, but by the time I got home I'd forgotten all about it. Thank you for all your continued guidance, advice & encouragement.

    God bless you & your family.

    Kind Regards

    I agree that our Bible study would be more useful when we are given the opportunity to contribute. Me & my friend have already suggested that, & they didn't take the hint. This is why we plan to look for another church after the Covid 19 pandemic. I have never heard of the buzz words "cell groups", but it sounds like a good way to make the Bible study less boring, but I doubt the pastor would go for anything like that either.

    I know that repetitions in prayer are not good because I have read it in the Bible. I do set aside time in the morning & at night to say my prayers & I do also say the Lord's Prayer in one of my prayers. In most of my prayers I would quote a scripture from the Bible. Example. 'Heavenly Father, Have mercy on me a sinner, It says in your word Matthew 5.44 But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray from them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. (& then I'd say) Lord, Please help me to love my enemies, to bless them that curse me, to do good to them that hate me, and to pray from them which despitefully use me, and persecute me, that I may be a future daughter of your kingdom. Thank you Father, In Jesus name I pray. Amen'. Praying doesn't come naturally to me because I only ever heard the teachers pray in assemblies because I don't come from a Christian background, so nobody around me prayed. I only started to pray in the last year or so, though I have been going to church for almost 3 years because I felt like an idiot at first & I don't feel God's presence around me, so this can be discouraging at times. I find it difficult to pray because I don't feel a connection. I do talk to the Lord sometimes as I go about my daily activities, but I don't feel like I get any answers. I told the pastor this & he said that I'm not going hear an audible voice. I've heard an audible voice in the past, but unsure if it was from God, so I just ignored it.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 8
    If you look carefully you will see there is a subtle play of words in what Alex is saying. The lie in the garden is proven in the admissions of Alex and Earl assuming deity. Be warned everyone, their teaching is heresy on display and spiritual blindness on their part. A little truth will never cover a great lie.

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Do men validate the lie of Satan in the garden and call it truth? Yes.
  • Grace on Revelation 12
    I don't have a prayer request, I just wanted to thank you for this site. Every morning before starting my day I read a chapter or two going through the Bible. The Bible verse you choose, have been a answer to pray, many times. As you don't have any knowledge of my life, but God is always there for me. Keep serving our LORD!

    Hi Chris,

    Page 1.

    Thanks for your reply. I also think that it's important to encourage one another in the Bible & in dealing with issues in life from a biblical perspective, though it is limiting on here. I don't think this should replace the enjoyment of personal Bible study, prayer & corporate fellowship with others either & feel like it would be detrimental for me to just rely on this site. I believe that we should seek out a Fellowship & believers that will help us in our walk & for us to be a blessing to others. One of my friends from my old church that now goes to a different church has asked me to go walking with members of another church a few times in the past, but the weather wasn't that great and it got cancelled, so I'll do that when it's not raining.

    We don't have a large congregations, there's only about 30 members, but more recently it's been more like 20. The impression I get from him is that he is very proud of himself, loves the own sound of his own voice & can even be overbearing at times. A few people haven even nodded of in his services, including me and the associate pastor because he can be a bit boring. He's not very good with social interaction, except when he's receiving compliments. He said to the younger pastor that he enjoys the privileges from wearing the collar even when he's not in church. Our younger pastor is more down to earth & just wears a shirt, tie & pants. I get the impression that most people don't read their bible & seem very worldly to me. I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment because I've only just come to the end of my recovery period for depression & anxiety, but with the Covid 19 pandemic, I haven't resumed to normal activities as I still need to be reassessed before doing so. I grew up singing Christian songs at my school, like 'Who put the colours in the rainbow', 'He's got the whole world in his hands', & 'All things bright & beautiful', so that's probably why I prefer more modern Christian songs.
  • Bigfoot on Wisdom of Solomon 2
    It is very true. Man was created to live for ever with God. And that, is the Immortality that Jesus The Christ promises all those who imitate Him;

    "I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever;

    and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.'" John 6:51-51

    "In all truth I tell you, whoever keeps my word will never see death." John 8:51-51

    "Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches: for those who prove

    victorious will come to no harm from the second death." Revelation 2:11-11
  • Chris - in Reply on Song of Solomon 4
    I think that folk have abundantly supplied you with Scriptures showing the divinity of Christ. What you might be better doing is to give some analysis of those Scriptures rather than sharing the ones that we all believe in, viz. that Jesus is God's Son with the Scriptures you've cited.

    So, if you could give some exposition of say, John 1:1-14 for starters, we would have something to work on & discuss.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Genesis 1:2, 3: "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."

    In these verses, we already see the Triune God at work. 1. We have God the Creator & Sustainer of all things. 2. We also see His Spirit "moving upon the face of the waters": that part of the Godhead that went out to do a work (we are not told). 3. Then we have God speak for the creation of light: "And God said..". This is His Word that is part of Who God is. Thus we see God, as He has revealed Himself to us, as a Triune God, and if any part of that divinity was missing, He would cease to be God.

    You are a trinity: a body, a soul & a spirit. If one part of your trinity was missing, you would either cease to be human, or maybe a sub-human.

    God chose to send out His Word to His people Israel: "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high" (Hebrews 1:1-3).

    Did you catch it? God sent out His Word to Israel, then sent out His Word to us through His Son (Who also shared in His Glory, in His Image & involved in the creative Work (also see Colossians 1:15-17)). This Word was made flesh for our sakes, He gave us God's Message & then laid down His Life for us. This is God's Word declared to you - if you choose to believe what you do, then you have to deny the Truth of His Word & make your appeal to some other source.

    John 20:27-29: "Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, MY LORD AND MY GOD. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

    Thomas should have been chastised severely for referring to Jesus as his Lord and his God. But He wasn't, rather Jesus accepted his declaration. We should go above & beyond the doubts that Thomas had over the Lord's deity & accept Jesus for Who He is: the Word of the Father made flesh to become the Son of the Father.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 22:30
    Resurrection means, a person who has died has his body (or, remains) physically raised from the grave without any human contribution, i.e. the body rises up & comes to life by God's Power.

    In that passage you've quoted, Jesus was speaking with the Sadducees (a religious sect of the Jews) who didn't believe in the resurrection. They wanted to test Jesus about the after life as to which wife of the many a man had married, would be his wife when they all rose from the dead. Jesus told them that human marriage is an earthly union & such marriages don't figure in Heaven. Of those who were resurrected, we of course have Jesus Himself Who rose up from the dead & ascended back to God proving that His Sacrifice for mankind's sins were completed & fully acceptable to God Who had planned for this to happen. Then after Jesus' resurrection, many of those righteous people who had died earlier also arose from their graves & walked among the people (see Matthew 27:51-53).

    The Bible tells us that the next occasion of a resurrection will be in the future when Jesus comes to take away His people including raising up His people who have died (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) & note the word 'sleep' is a euphemism for those who've already died. And again, after the Great Tribulation (a horrible time of the outpouring of God's Anger upon the world) there will be another general resurrection (read Revelation chapter 20).

    There are also instances where someone has died & they have come to life in the Old Testament: 1 Kings 17:17-24; 2 Kings 4:32-37; 2 Kings 13:21 and we have instances in the New Testament of people being brought back to life by Jesus or His disciples.
  • Anonymous on Genesis 35:5
    Thank you for this everything.

    But translation to Korean needs to be consulted to KKJB (Korean King James bible) by Word of God Preservation Society. ( P.O.Box, Kang Seo, Seoul, Korea. Printed in Korea)

    I study intensive reading of English as 2nd language. I choose this KJB. But there are some misunderstandings as Korean translation version.

    Anyway I appreciate you again.
