  • Joe on Romans 16
    Although I have read this chapter numerous times, I do not understand it. Paul says "greet ... and salute ... about various people.

    Where were these people physically located? In or around Corinth?

    vs 3: "Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus:" makes it seem as if Priscilla & Aquila were actually going to Rome, along with Phebe, to deliver the letter.

    Or, as if the Romans had come to Corinth and are being introduced by Paul to the Corinthians.
  • God has no respect of Persons we are judged separately - in Reply on Ezekiel 18
    Commentary for Ezekiel 18:6

    By Matthew Henry

    God has no respect of persons.

    1-20 The soul that sinneth it shall die. As to eternity, every man was, is, and will be dealt with, as his conduct shows him to have been under the old covenant of works, or the new covenant of grace. Whatever outward sufferings come upon men through the sins of others, they deserve for their own sins all they suffer; and the Lord overrules every event for the eternal good of believers. All souls are in the hand of the great Creator: he will deal with them in justice or mercy; nor will any perish for the sins of another, who is not in some sense worthy of death for his own. We all have sinned, and our souls must be lost, if God deal with us according to his holy law; but we are invited to come to Christ. If a man who had shown his faith by his works, had a wicked son, whose character and conduct were the reverse of his parent's, could it be expected he should escape the Divine vengeance on account of his father's piety? Surely not. And should a wicked man have a son who walked before God as righteous, this man would not perish for his father's sins. If the son was not free from evils in this life, still he should be partaker of salvation. The question here is not about the meritorious ground of justification, but about the Lord's dealings with the righteous and the wicked.

    My comment: this entire chapter is about people being held responsible for their own sinfulness or, for what they know to be righteousness. To choose good and choose Gods way; is to choose life. If your parents or your children choose evil; they are choosing death. It's the choices we make individually, that determines life or death. We can repent of wrong and choose life. And vice versa.

    The children do not bear the penalty for the parents choices; and vice versa.

    In the Bible, idol worship or evil works we're committed on the mountaintops. In full view of God and everybody.

  • Sharon Litzenberger on Isaiah 6:10
    If people have no desire to be saved unless God puts it in them, why does he harden some lest they believe?

  • Rob - in Reply on Psalms 10
    Jesus defeated the devil at the cross , so Jesus now reigns at the fathers right hand . Until Lord Jesus enemies are made his footstool.

    Evil is rampant but defeated just the same .

    Evils days are numbered , make sure you are on the good side , evil will have a last fling before God stamps it out .

    Known as the Day of the Lord , we need to be ready . Read Jesus discussion on this in the gospels .

    1 Corinthians 10 v 21 not v 1

    I get a lot of typos, not sure why
  • Rob - in Reply on Ezekiel 18
    1 Corinthians 10 v1

    This explains what I was referring to in the NT . I hope this helps you
  • Rob - in Reply on Ezekiel 18
    To me my first impression is it's a secretive type of devil worship .

    Read Deuteronomy 12. 2

    I think that's the verse , other places in the Bible indicates that in the mountains evil things took place , Israel at one time was forbidden to go into the mountains because of the pagan gods and nations that dwelt there .

    New Testament teaches we can not eat at the Lords table and table of devils . Maybe 1 Corinthians it talks about this .
  • Norman Walker Butch - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 4
    Rob I have a real problem with knowing who to trust that are on tv preaching whether or not they are real and with all of the things that are going on now I have even more problems with it. How do you know if they are honest God loving people or just in it for the money? I never have trusted them much anyway and now I just do not watch them at all. So sad but the Bible tells us all about it. That is one thing I like about this site because to me it is for real and nothing for anyone to make any money on it and I love it! I do think if there was ever a time in my life the end is near is right now after 70 years. One thing I do know is a day is like a thousand years to the Lord and know man shall know not even the Son so what a day that will be. Amen and Praise the Lord

    John 4:24

    God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth
  • Kercelia - in Reply on Psalms 10
    Two statements I have often heard: "God is in control," and "Satan is the ruler of this world," seem to contradict one another. I truly want to believe that God is in control, but with so much evil and depravity going on I just don't know.

    I was hoping someone to have commented on ch.18:6 about "And hath not eaten upon the mountains". What's so bad about that, I wonder?
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Isaiah 60
    One thing I most enjoy my brother. Absorbing our Fathers marvelous days. His beautiful blue sky. Puffy white, ever changing, clouds. His wind that comes and goes. The birds and their glorious songs. Butterflies, flowers, all the colors, etc.

    Only if it wasn't raining so much right now. This is a Blessing as well.

    God Bless.
  • Patty Tozi on 1 Thessalonians 4:17
    The Lord will always Fight for you. Always remember in these days. Never knowing the outcome of each day we are weary and afraid. Put the word of God in front of you. The music of His words that will straighten you. Close your eyes and look for His light that will surround you -- protecting you at all times. Go after everything you were afraid of doing in the past. Go after it as your day to day will end at a moment notice. Protect your self from spiritual warfare of this world. Stay close to God as never before. Look at all His creations. Sounds He created for us. Get your mind off of not succeeding--- But making it work with God right in front of you. Be quiet and listen to God talking to you. Watch for signs. Watch for unusual things to happen for the Best. Stay in Prayer and walking close to Him in your heart. Pretty soon you will feel His Special Light of His Love that will be able to move mountains at what you want in your life. Stay close to God Always....

    love yourself
  • Doug Smallwood on Luke 16:30
    Have not heard that explanation of 16:28 from Wesley before. But the reality that a brother, son or daughter had followed you into hell would surely add to your eternal torment. Conversely, in heaven, Revelation 21:4 tells us that God will wipe away every tear. Question would be , " Why would there be any tears in heaven? ". Only thing I could think of is the eternal lament of a son, daughter or other loved one who is not present with us in eternal presence of God. How God will do that we aren't told; just the assurance that mourning will be no more in heaven.
  • EWB on Matthew 9
    Matthew 9:9 If Matthew wrote the book of Matthew, Then why does it not speak the words as him being the writer. Jesus saw a man. And said unto him. ????
  • Wendy r on Jude 1:8
    I am not sure what is meant by 'dreamers.' Is it those who are 'asleep?' Or is it those who are interpreting false dreams and saying they are prophecies? I just don't understand this. If someone could explain this verse, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
  • Ronald. on Zechariah 14

    I can understand and relate to your expression especially with reference to the phrase "Now the strength of the spiritual sides of the natives".

  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 1
    I just think God shows us often His love and interest in simple things that encourages us to look up.

    Someone once told me bloom where you are planted. I do that. I think a lot of prayer is the best decoration of all.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Our experience not unlike yours. A church leader also bought our place. What was interesting about our old house is that it had a flat roof! Not sure if this was anything ,adding to our experience. On the other hand my new house has windows in the roof, now I am able to look directly into heaven! Its nice to think we can add to anything he has created?The real power is in the word. Looking always to the author and finisher of our faith. God Bless!
