  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 22:2
    Hi R. P Mai, I made a mistake in my typing, I meant to say I don't think you will find where God created any nations on the 6th day, but you will find where he created man on the 6th day in Genesis 1:26-31

  • Chris - in Reply on John 17
    You are correct, that there was no requirement for Jesus to be baptized, whether required by Jewish Law or for any need of repentance. As Jesus said, that this act of His was to "fulfil all righteousness, for both of them" (Matthew 3:15).

    By this statement of Jesus, I understand that Jesus identified with John the Baptist, in his specific calling as a prophet & ministry of being the "voice in the wilderness, crying, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight." This gave a Divine & public testimony to John, as much as it was confusing to him that rather he should be the baptizee.

    Also, this occasion was for the inauguration of Jesus' Ministry, where the Godhead (the Trinity) was involved in the affirmation of the ministry & the empowerment to do so. So we find that the Father gave His Approval (verse 17) & the Spirit came specifically upon Him in a public 'testimony' manner (verse 16), thereby giving the Divine Declaration that this is indeed the Holy One from God, Who through His Sacrifice will accomplish much more than John could ever do, even to the 'spiritual' baptizing with the "Holy Ghost & with fire"; Who will also be their Judge, "thoroughly purge(ing) his floor, and gather(ing) his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." (vv 11).

    So, we see that this was not the usual baptism that John was giving to others: sinners demonstrating their sinful condition & need for cleansing. This was done to accomplish & publicly testify to Jesus' higher Calling: you can call it 'Jesus' inauguration service', just as those in the early Church were commended to service & even today, as the elders of a Fellowship lay hands upon & commend those going out to serve the Lord in full-time service.
  • Vickie clements on Psalms 103:13
    Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. What does that mean
  • Sherice walker on Psalms 30
    What was David saying through this psalm what their a specific revelation?
  • David Hummel on Genesis 2:7
    though I think there was, at some point, link to search particular bible terms on this site I can no longer find it. For Example, it would be a good feature if one could type in the word 'knowledge' and see where and how often that word occurs bible wide- I might have overlooked just such a feature. Can anyone help?
  • Loretta Damon on Genesis 4
    Yes, I do not understand the sin of Cain before he killed his brother. God was pleased with Abel's gift but not with Cain's gift. Cain became jealous and then killed his brother which of course was sin. Why was Cain's gift not acceptable to God?
  • NOEL on Genesis 1
    Matthew 25:1

    Are the 5 foolish virgins referring to Christians who are not ready and waiting for Christ's return?

    Is it possible that born-again, redeemed Christians can miss the Rapture of the church, and be left behind to face the coming wrath of the antichrist?
  • Mujuni Francis on 2 Kings 1
    How old was Adam when Eve was created?
  • VICTORIA FONSECA - in Reply on Acts 2:38
    Thank you Willie, that is what I thought and that is what I tried to tell this other person but they kept telling me that when peter told the people to repent and be baptize it was directed to the Israel and the gentiles only had to believe through grace but didn't have to repent and that gave me a red flag! I told her it was a command even though baptism doesn't save but it is symbolic symbol of of our new birth in Jesus in the death , burial and Resurrection to the world, and that God calls all to repent
  • Marcus on Psalms 91
    My God; in him will I trust
  • Anonymous on John 5
    How do I relieve sexual tension in a non sinful way? The Bible talks about self discipline and training your mind not to look lustfully at young Women. And the last thing I want to do is sin against god. I really need help with this and I don't know how to go about it.
  • Shaarei - in Reply on Genesis 2:7
    For ALL have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. The commandments to Love our Lord with all and to Love one another, on these hand ALL Laws and ALL PROPHETS!

    May the truth find you and set you free

    Galatians 3:28

    There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus

    when we are born again, WE ARE ADOPTED INTO OUR LORD!

    Romans 8:15

    For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father

    We are one in CHRIST JESUS

  • Shaarei - in Reply on Genesis 3
    EARS THAT HEAR! Adam and Eve were in the presence of the LORD. in His presence ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! They did not know anything else. Our Father walked through the Garden of Eden. He spoke audibly with Adal and Eve and many many many others. It is a small thing in comparison for a serpent to speak...even a serpent having legs is too much for our brains. Our Father help thou thine unbelief
  • Shaarei - in Reply on John 17
    To fulfil the Law. Our LORD kept all commandments. JESUS is the way. We follow in the way. We Follow JESUS. because He was baptised in must we be baptised in water for the remission of sin . Love and Peace be with you always
  • Linda Oswald on 1 John 5
    Can you explain the water and blood in verse 6? Is this a reference to the physical birth of Jesus the Christ?
  • Gary g4harkyahoocom on Revelation 6
    The White horse is the LAW Moses if you will, the only one in scripture riding a white horse is God, Ref-Rev-19-21.. The red horse is Christ, the rep- of the blood that flowed , That sword is the Word of God ( the word of God is a sharp two edged sword--- ) Jesus said think not that I have come to bring piece, but a sword and a mans enemy's will be them of his own household..

    The black horse denotes darkness Yes, Jesus said word wile you have the light the night comes when no one can work, but think of the set of divine Balances in his hand The Barely= The old Test- the wheat the new Test, see you hurt not the Oil=Faith and wine= Spirit...These horses riders are the revealing of the WORD of GOD...? What is the 4th horse rider a rep-Of,,= You mite be surprised, he is not what you think he is , Ask the Question !!!
  • Ex 32:33 and Rev 3:5.

    1 - What does this mean?

    2- Are there two books?

    3- if so, what is the first book for/mean?

    I think we all know if our names are written in the Lambs Book of life, it won't be blotted out.

    4- What is the interpretation/meaning He won't erase people's names from the Book of Life?
  • Rev Jack C Gutknecht on Isaiah 33:6
    May my neighbors stand strong when the storms of life come, because You are their sure foundation. "He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure."

    Isaiah 33:6
  • Fonbs - in Reply on John 17
    What was the purpose of Christ's baptism? I know Jesus said it was to

    fulfill righteousness, but I still don't understand since John's baptized unto repentance. Jesus was sinless with no need for repentance. Thank you.
