  • Debbie Hope on Exodus 9
    All the cattle died earlier in the plagues - Then when they were hail storm the cattle also died'. Where did that cattle come from if all died during the plague.
  • Fred Scanlan on Philippians 3
    Mathew Henry, verifies the spiritual discipline found in the pure faith of the Gospel. Paul describes this faith as to attaining a prize, running a race. That we should not rely on our flesh ,or our education, or our religious upbringing. Our frame of mind should be to attain the righteousness of Christ. That we can attain the power of his resurrection. fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable to his death. Then can we conquer those who are against us ,with the power of the holy spirit. It is impossible to war against the evils of dogs ,evil workers ,the concision, without this faith in Christ. This power comes from above. From heaven!
  • Kitti on Psalms 91:15
    My question is Psalms 91 verse 15 where it says he shall call upon me and I will answer him and I will be with him in trouble I will deliver him and honor him who is him is my question

    Luke 17;28-36

    28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

    29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. (Sin was taken, rightesness is left.)

    30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (when we accept Jesus into our lives, "the second coming", He is revealed to us in a personal way. Praise God, thank you Jesus.

    31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

    32 Remember Lot's wife.

    33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. At that instant, they will be as one man,evil life and new beginning. When we accept Jesus into our lives, "the second coming", Our old sinful life is taken and the new life with Jesus is left.

    Likewise:

    35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    Thank You Jesus, Praise God.

  • Michael - in Reply on Matthew 13:39
    Federico, My opinion: I feel for you, my friend. This could be mental or spiritual. Are you a Christian? Did you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior of your life? Are you living by grace through the Holy Spirit like Acts 2? Are you truly living as a servant of Jesus Christ as the LORD of your life? That means not holding on to sin especially sin of the past... but asking for forgiveness daily (repentance..."Confess your sins and He is just and faithful (righteous) to forgive you your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness". If so and even if not so, if it is spiritual or mental, I believe that you should go to a Spirit-Filled Christian Minister (Counselor) who can help you in Deliverance. A prayer of Deliverance can set you free...Deliverance has helped many individuals; especially new Christians who came out of the world and who are now living for Jesus Christ. I, myself had gone through a deliverance prayer with a Minister when I first came out of the world. Not spoke about much nowadays; but it could be an answer to your problem.. God loves you and wants to care for you! He gives us Counselors so we can be helped. All of us...
  • Whit witherspoon on Deuteronomy 6:18
    Yes I have a little secret that I have kept for many years and I feel its a good time to tell it. I hope its ok with the lord that I do this. Notice my name is WHIT. All my life I have noticed that I am not alone as a man. Something has always let me know that it is with me. Something other than a human. The word whit means the least bit, a jot or a tittle is the definition. I Amos 67 years old and was born on June 16, 1953. I was born into a family that had extensive oil and gas holdings in the Permian Basin of Texas. When my grandmother died she left her inheritance to my dad and his 2 siblings. As time went by and oil technology was improving over the years the yearly production increased and increased. My whole life I have been drawn to the Bible KJV. My dad quit his day job and just because he didn't need that income anymore. Like I said I was drawn to the KJV of the bible. Deuteronomy 13; 16 , John 7; 23. Long story short I found out that I am the least of these his brethren. I was 30 years old when I read Deut. for the 1st time. Two weeks later I met the lord in the form of a dark cloud on the Frwy..This thing gripped my whole body very tight and was totally invisible. The event lasted about 45 minutes that I will never forget. "If you seek the lord thy God with all your heart and all your soul you will find him ". And I DID !! "Thou shalt not take the name of the lord thy God in vain". And I never have taken it in vain. My name is the WORD OF GOD!! Well my dad finally died and now the fancy income is mine. He was born on 7/7/27. Thine enemies shall come at thee 1 way and flee 7 ways before thee. He died at the age of 63 and 280 days so I expect to die at the age of 70 and 280 days. Which means I will die about on PALM SUNDAY 2024. I have never written that little story before as you can tell.

    Zion means the Church of the Living God, the true church.
  • Gwen on Ephesians 6
    Yes l agree and the comment l want too is that also walk in the spirit so that we will not fulfill the list of the flesh there of. If you keep your mind on Christ He will keep us in perfect peace who's mind is stayed on Thee.
  • Valerie on 1 Corinthians 2:15
    What I learned reading this verse and those around it: We, who are in the moment connected to the Holy Spirit, can discern correctly God's will. However, we will not be understood correctly by those who are not. The world's proposal that to be understood is the pathway to peace is futile.

    Those moments when we are not connected to the Holy Spirit, we cannot correctly discern, we are limited to mere human comprehension. We are vulnerable, and, if we turn to pride, we err. Explains to me, why so many proclaiming Christ can deny their involvement in horrendous actions without regret, remorse, or contrition.

    Lesson to me: Be real AND get connected at least once a day if not moment by moment.

    Note: the Jews hold back a drop of wine at passover sedar in remembrance of the pain enemies experience when defeated. That's respect.
  • Patty Tozi on Hebrews 2
    Have you noticed how close God is to you? He is waiting while your struggles from the dark side come upon you. Like me l have learned to take one day at a time. Trying to hear God when He leads me toward a person or situation of a need. I walk into the conflict for others as this world sees it...and l use God's way of solving it. Putting the whole armor on, l let God solve the problems thru me. What a sad world this has become. The darkness over whelms others that do not see the Light of God. The more you have been thru in your life-- the more of a fighter for others-- as Jesus was in His days, you are in these days. The Heavens are real. I have seen them in an after death. The Book of Life is real....everything the Bible has shown in the writings from long ago is ALL REAL!!! GO TO YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. PRAISE HIM!!!!! UNTIL THE DAY HE RETURNS!!!!!

    Well now we now. Keep looking for that money!! Then you know exactly period. Trump is ! Hello are y'all awake
  • Chris - in Reply on Nehemiah 1
    As you have probably read 2 Peter chapter 2 from verse 1, Peter here is speaking against these false teachers (like the false prophets of old) that will bring into the Church heresies & false doctrines.

    You would have read Peter's vivid description of these false teachers, as those that sat & fellow-shipped in the Church & seemingly did all the right things, but wickedness was brewing in their minds to twist Scripture & lead believers into sin. We're not given specific examples of what they did or taught but in verse 20, we read that even after knowing about Jesus & all that the Cross accomplished for them, they still remained unregenerate & vile people. And their evil was so great that it would have been better for them not to have known the Truth than to reject & twist it in such a manner. Peter is probably emphasizing that there is more hope for a sinner to first hear & accept the Gospel message of Jesus, than for these false Christians/teachers to ever find place of repentance in the future (verses 20, 21).
  • Audrey on 1 Chronicles 4:10
    I am also saying this scripture everyday with my name in it. My Assistant Principal said when she heard it, she immediately thought God wanted her to give it to me.
  • Mark David Bragga on Mark 14:52
    Mark 14-51:52 is a metaphor. The cloth represents Jesus, the young man represents Jesus's disciples, the act of the young man running away abandoning the cloth represents the disciples running away abandoning Jesus.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 51
    Zion, generally is referred to as Jerusalem (the City of David). Sometimes, it is referred to as the Fortress of Zion or Mount Zion. The earliest reference to Jerusalem is in Genesis 14:18, when Melchizedek, King of Salem went out to meet Abram. Jerusalem means, City/Town/House of Peace.
  • Martinus Kudumo on Psalms 51
    Greeting Jesus name!!!

    What does Zion mean, or stand for? in that Psalms 51:18

    Thank you
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Page 3.

    There was no getting away from this fact: while he (& we) walk this Earth we have this nature from Adam (Romans 5:12) which makes us all sinners & the proof is in our experience of both spiritual & physical death.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Page 2.

    You wrote, "all are tempted, but temptation does not become sin unless you let it linger in the heart". I fully agree but since you've also said that you remain sinless by not allowing that temptation to bear fruit, the path is still open for you to be overcome at some point, which would then make you a sinner. It's heartening to read that thus far you have resisted & remain pure (as only the Lord & yourself could judge), but as said previously, if sin should overtake you, how then does it establish itself if only the new nature from God is in you? Adam/Eve never knew sin - Satan tempted them to sin, thereby placing in them his nature so that sin could take root & condemn them. Jesus never sinned - Satan tempted Him also to sin but He resisted him with the Word of God (Himself) & unlike Adam, the last Adam could not/never have Satan's nature imputed in Him.

    What has perplexed us is your claim to be without sin. Now we can understand that you're saying that thus far you have deflected the Enemy's thrusts at you & remained guiltless. When we understand sinlessness, we can only find examples of this in Adam/Eve before their fall & in Jesus Christ; no other person in history has ever been recorded or observed as sinless. You were forgiven & cleansed from your sins in July 1994, but that was for your past sinful life. Nevertheless, the old nature (which you say has been destroyed), is still with you, to which Satan does battle, having had free access during your unsaved years & now raging more than ever, as a child of God. Romans 7, to which you believe Paul was speaking about his battle with sin as a Jew, is actually him speaking as a believer in Christ. This battlefield involved the flesh & the spirit that caused him great spiritual anguish. Yet, he found victory in abiding in Christ & had to admit that "with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."

    David, thank you again. I do agree with your understanding of sin, that it encompasses more than obedience to the Ten Commandments, though many 'Christians' today think nothing of uttering an expletive or telling a 'white' lie, considering that to be normal. Also, I agree with your example 1, in dealing with the entrance of sin into the mind (James 1:15). Your example 2 (not Exodus 2, I assume), on Judas, I see differently. Judas already had sin in his heart as keeper of the purse (John 12:3-6), being recorded as a thief as he probably dipped into it often. So sin was already there - Satan came to tempt him, sin revived & Satan gained another notch. As for Judas & the rest of the disciples, I never considered them to be saved - they were carnal men, moved by God to follow Jesus, to believe in His Message, & to await that day of Pentecost when they would be truly transformed & be born again.

    However, sins like that of Judas, where contemplation & decision to act are necessary for sin to be the outcome, are not always so well defined. The other day while at the traffic lights, a driver went through a red light but the car going through the green light managed to brake in time. My immediate thought (& look on my face) was one of shock & anticipation of the worst - soon followed by a sense of loathing & mental derision of that driver. I did not have time to contemplate my response - it came out in an instant & sadly a response that was sin as it wasn't in keeping with how a life holy to the Lord would behave. No one witnessed my sin - but God did. So there would be times in our lives when we may not be able to make a decision to not sin, but yes, our lives should be so fine-tuned so as not to respond the way I did.
  • Why the word RAPTURE is not found in the King James Bible on Revelation 12
    Reason why the word RAPTURE isn't found in the King James Bible. It is called: CAUGHT UP in the clouds.

    This is where the term came from.

    >> So we see that the English, RAPTURE, Latin RAPIO, and GreekHARPAZO, are cognates - they are the same word in different languages. But not only are they the same word, they have the same meaning. Anyone who has done a little reading from extra-biblical Greek and Latin, or has at least enough familiarity with those languages to use the classical Greek and Latin lexicons, is well aware of the fact that Greek (harpaz) and Latin rapio regularly bore the same sense of "remove from harm's way" that pretribulationists claim for the English word rapture. It was regularly used by the mythologists of the gods snatching their favorites out of harm's way. And it was regularly used in similar senses by the historical authors. I recently noted that Josephus used it of parents snatching their children up and running for cover when Titus sacked Jerusalem in 70 AD.

    Jesus is not touching the earth during the Rapture. He's going to catch us up into the clouds, to meet him.

    First: the deceased born again believers.

    Second: alive and watching for Jesus, believers.

  • LOCUST swarms in Africa - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Locust are in the Bible. It's insect and also a pestilence. If you Google "locust swarms in Africa", You will see news reports of swarms of locusts decimating the little food that they are able to grow. They desperately need help in feeding many starving people. They've pleaded with the world community to fund and assist in spraying the few crops they still have. Look at the comparison of a locust to a grasshopper. They just look evil.

    May we all remember the Africans in our daily prayers and ask the Holy Spirit to guide our petition.
  • Arthur Gutierrez on Romans 8:28
    I truly believe this passage goes beyond the gift of salvation, and the work of sanctification by the power of the Holy Spirit which by Grace is beautiful beyond measure. But the understanding comes from the last part of the verse understanding God's Purpose. It is so easy to say "All things work together for good to those who love God. But it is working through God's purposes for your life that takes greater faith, greater peace, greater joy, greater contentment in our circumstances, trials and testing that one can say God works all things for good according to His purposes for me, rather than to speak this passage up in the air as wishful thinking?
  • Elijah Wiaka on Revelation 10
    Who is John?
  • T - in Reply on Revelation 12
    We know from the plagues of Egypt the locust was the insect.

    The book of Joel also speaks in regards to locusts swarming, eating and destroying.

    The book of Revelation also forewarns of the locusts which will plague unbelievers. Scorpion tales and human faces.

    I'm glad to be a believer in Jesus Christ!
