  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 12
    Magdalena has given a very good summary that Moses' authorship of Genesis would have come from oral or written modes from his ancestors. And the point here for those who may want to support the theory of evolution or find some other arguable subject in Genesis, is that the Lord Jesus Christ, God's Word made flesh, spoke of Moses & did not at any time question what was written in the Torah. Jesus could have said,"Well folks, I have news for you: Genesis is not altogether accurate". However, all of the Law & the Prophets were fully accepted & widely used by Jesus in His Ministry. I would direct you to the site: Answers In Genesis > Did Moses write Genesis. It's a long piece but worth the read.

    You can actually google Apostles Death. There's only 2 mentioned in the Bible.
  • Chris - in Reply on Mark 3
    Larry, as you know, the chapter speaks about the wicked false teachers that penetrated (or, allowed to penetrate) Christ's Church. A lesson for us today as well. Their condemnation is already set in stone but for the believers not properly grounded in the faith who are now "entangled/overcome", their end is "worse". Your query no doubt is on the actual state of these believers. My belief is that once a sinner has repented & saved by God's Grace, He is eternally secure & given Power to walk the Christian life. If a believer fails the Lord through sin, the avenue of repentance & forgiveness is there. If he chooses to go the way of sin, then he may not have been saved at all: Hebrews 6:4-6.
  • Chris - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    Mike, to add to Kay's great comment: any crisis in one's life or in the family can get one despondent & sometimes irrational or lose control. If you have a loving family, you're blessed - many have to go it alone. If you belong to a Church Fellowship (or, at least seek to join one), the Church leader or Pastor can be of much help in counselling or directing you to others for help. When one in dire straits senses the love & support within his family & Church, the road becomes a lot easier. Peter, the apostle of Jesus, writing to some Churches in Asia (Turkey) encouraged them in 1 Pet 5:5-10, but especially with this: "Cast all your care (troubles/worries) upon God, for He careth for you"
  • Carlos Hernandez Jacinto on Philippians 4:13
    In the book of revelation, what happens to the two-horned beast Because I read that the false christ and the dragon, and the beast that killed the two messengers from God all three get thrown into the lake of fire, but not the two-horned beast. Who else picked up on that And the two messengers from God are the one that overcomes the ten kings by the Gospel.
  • Tommy Sullivan - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Actually Sons of God in Hebrew means Bene ha elohim, which only refers to angelic beings. And the elohim means God, and all angels has the name of God (Elohim) within the meaning of their names. And this is how Giants even came into being. They can't be Giants if there is a spiritual union between to regular humans. The angels left their habitation to come to earth and have sex with the daughters of man ( ha Adam) and or the daughters of Cain. And this union created Nephilim...the Men of Renown.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 45:5
    I agree Debra: Scripture is replete with multiple applications/dimensional, both in the O.T. and N.T. After all, prophecies were given to help the people of God (Israel) know His Mind (though with limited view/understanding) & to have hope when sometimes all hope was gone. As His children now (through the shed Blood of Christ), we receive those prophecies, as some are both historically accomplished, and yet with another fulfilment for the future. In a world of woe & continual spiritual & moral degradation, the believer too can find light & hope through the expected fulfilment of prophecies & walk on confidently when there remains no more hope for those outside Christ.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 89:47
    Bob, you've taken this to the next level. I agree with what you say, but for the 'average' believer, desire or opportunity precludes us from delving too deep into the backgrounds of these authors. Finding one that remains consistently true to the Word should be one for our consistent use. There is also a move by some to move away from post Nicene teachings to the fathers of the ante Nicene era. Of course, new teachings arise, particularly with Eschatology, but as has been claimed them, the Fathers were more faithful to Scriptural meaning and apostolic teaching (on this subject particularly). Did this aspect come up in your Bible College education & how did you receive it
  • Angela S Windom - in Reply on John 11
    I don't know what you mean! When we die and face Jesus, the decision is not ours if we are going to heaven or hell! That is up to Jesus and God! Our name is either in the Lambs Book Of Life, or it isn't! It is however, our decision while we are alive on this earth! It is the greatest & most important decision we ever make! Choose JESUS!!
  • Angela - in Reply on Psalms 20
    I started a paranormal group with my brother years ago. I know there are spirits loose on this earth. I have been on many investigations in many different places. It is unbelievable what I have seen, heard, witnessed, & even have felt! I have loved Jesus since I was a small child. Things started happening to me & I felt & heard unexplainable things as a child. My brother witnessed it. So, it made us both curious to seek to find answers. But, after reading in the bible that God is disgusted by people trying to talk to spirits, I stopped completely! Now I wonder if it was the devil, or his demons just playing with us! When I read about the box you have, & what you heard, it was shocking to me
  • D W L on Matthew 28
    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave (his only begotten Son), that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17 For God sent not (his Son) into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Matthew 1: 2-16 tells us who begat who from Adam until Christ. Jesus is Gods ONLY begotten SON, Joseph never begat Jesus, Mary didn't go to the sperm bank to get inseminated, But the Holy Ghost came and she conceived and bare the Son of God in the flesh.
  • Marie Bishop - in Reply on Matthew 15
    This is very true.Some of us have walked away from God and doing our own worldly things and has forgotten about him. So he has to let us knwo that he is the Lord Our God and he always make the right decisions no matter what.
  • Glenn Brooks - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Babylon in Revelation includes many people in Christian Churches. Many will come out when the hour is right. However most will stay in there and receive the 7 plagues. If you really believe the Bible then it is easy to figure this out. Just look up the verse where Jesus said many shall come to me but Jesus said depart from me . I never knew you. These people though they were doing well but they love to create a God to suit them. It does not work that way.
  • D W L - in Reply on Matthew 28
    John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: (sin no more), lest a worse thing come unto thee.

    John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and (sin no more).

    I just have to go by what Jesus said.
  • Coeleen Kiebert on Proverbs 8
    Clearly this is the voice of Sophia...who delighted in him...who brought Wisdom...who still brings Wisdom. This is the voice of the Feminine, who was there in the beginning...the very beginning.

    This lesson learned from my honored teacher, Mary Holmes, and painted about in her Chapel of Wisdom.
  • Bob Hilt on 2 Peter 3
    Surfing the net you shall find those who deny Paul as an apostle.

    2 Peter 3:15 - And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul (BELOVED BROTHER PAUL) also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

    2 Peter 3:16 - As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things;

    in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

    they must deny the book of acts also.
  • Mary Hicks on Psalms 91
    In those days Moses when God had told Moses to go to Pharaoh and tell Pharaoh and tell hi to let my peoples go oh no Pharaoh head were hard until Pharaoh made a mistake to Moses and told Moses to go back to his God and tell him all first born will die that's when a plague were made so all first born died but Pharaoh thought he had more power than God so Pharaoh first and only boy died as well and before the Firestone born God told Moses to tell his peoples to put blood on the front door and put there bold on the doors and when plague came came Pharaoh son die but the one who put the blood on door there son lived. God are power all power in Gods hand when he rose on Sunday morning.

  • Judith Bell on Jeremiah 29:11
    This verse remind me that God's plan for my future is a bright one, he's prepared me for that blessed day.
  • Debbie on Romans 11:25
    Romans 11:25 and MUCH MORE!

    Patrick may i suggest you go to Grace Bible Ambassadors on YouTube and they will send you a 29 page booklet, (Jesus wasn't talking to you!!). You will learn more than you think you know.

    I did. You can follow along in teachings for every page. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Job 19
    To live is Christ, to die is gain!
  • Peter on Genesis 2
    A living soul could however talk to God and God would talk with him, but he was a little lower than the angels (I think that it says that somewhere) but he did not have the knowledge of Good or Evil although he was born good and may have had some concept on what was good and what God did and said and made and what Adam saw, heard, tasted and smelled and felt was good. So he may have had some idea of what was good n but not what was evil. So that must be a living soul
  • Omega Man - in Reply on Exodus 20:3
    That scripture NEVER said there should be no other god before or after me IN HEAVEN! There is NO mention of heaven! Read before you abuse the scripture its meaning! It is directing at those people who were making idols and worshipping them in mockery against God during Moses absence.
  • DDC - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Mathew 11:27 Jesus no one knows who he or the father is unless he reveals it. Mathew 16:17 Jesus tells Peter he knew Jesus was the son of God not because a flesh and blood human told him but because Father God told him. Sounds like you know Jesus is the son of God there for you must be called. If you want to be closer to Jesus pray and read his word ask him to show himself and he will.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 1
    Mickey, I agree. I hope I didn't give the impression that I have been born again but still drink. I quit drinking back in 1993. I have friends who drink and I've even been told by them that it's okay to have a drink every now and then. I guess every now and then to them would be considered moderation. I don't believe the Lord says it's okay to drink alcohol, even in moderation. Now I'm not telling any believer that they shouldn't drink. That's between them and the Lord. But if a believer wants to know if it's okay or not okay to consume alcohol, the question should be what is the Lord leading them to do Is He leading them to drink If not, then maybe that's their answer.
  • Mishael on Malachi 4
    You know in Job 1:6-12, satan stops off at Gods throne and asks to trouble Job till he curses God. This indicates that satan can afflict Christians. He has a will and uses it. That's Old Testament and we live in New Testament now. Jesus is at the right hand of the Father making intercession for the Saints. He is our Advocate, counsellor,etc. We need to be talking and listening (prayer) to The Lord.

    What are we listening to TV, radio shows, Facebook, Twitter etc. None of them preach a word to save a soul; heal the sick-anything. Your faith is on life support and you think God is allowing problems launched at you. Turn off the World and Tune into God. He is your Life support. Jesus is too
  • Alston Voorhees on Matthew 1
    I was looking for a verse today, Easter, for study and positive inspiration. My worst fear was realized when the verse you provided was spoken by a God rejector and hypocrite - Eliphaz - accusing Job.

    I do love this app and use it almost daily!
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 2
    Just good writing techniques. 1st we say what we are going to say and then we say it. One tells you things; and 2 tells you more about those things; and the writer does not have to tell us everything. God may have known our questions but if He had answered them all; the Bible would be mighty big, so big, you would never be able to read it all and so we would still not know the answer to our question; Maybe so big, it would confuse scholars as it sometimes does today. So the scholars and preachers read it but they may not know the answers to our questions. We can however discuss the Bible, but also we should take it by Faith.
  • Debra - in Reply on Isaiah 45:5
    Thank you Chris. I have learned that scripture is mostly 3 dementional. For instance, where Scripture reads that Rachel wept for her children, is when Herod had the males killed under 2. The reason that Jacob buried his true love Rachel on the trail was because her descendants were in that area. So most likely it was her children who were killed..
  • Rowland Tedder - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1:1
    The Bible tells us in Proverbs 20:1 - Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

    No where in the Bible state Jesus turned water into an alcoholic drink and the grapes were fermented. He simple stated he turned water into wine. His word, the Bible, talks against alcohol in several places when you read it in its entirety. He will not contradict himself. Jesus is the word (John 1:1). Galatians chapter 5 also explains to us what is sin. Ask yourself, how would it effect your witness to the world. Would they take you serious seeing you drinking alcohol and trying to lead them to Jesus Praying earnestly and not self willed, God will reveal thetruth
