    When dealing with one particular audience during his earthly ministry, our Lord Jesus Christ answered a question about the greatest commandment. He said, "Thou shalt love LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment" ( Mark 12:30). This is not an option or suggestion. The authoritative (not authoritarian) Lord gave a commandment. It was to be done. He then added, "And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these" ( Mark 12:31).

    an opening in a wall ( 1 Kings 11:27 ; 2 Kings 12:5 ); the fracture of a limb ( Leviticus 24:20 ), and hence the expression, "Heal, etc." ( Psalms 60:2 ). Judges 5:17 , a bay or harbour;

    Gene Redwood,

    I'm starting to see that too, it's frightening how we bring it upon ourselves. The US can be overpowered. If you chart US history past WWII, America has its hands in everybody's pie. But, oh, what a magnificent empire. A year ago, I would have stuck up for my red, white, and blue, but God showed me her fate. Some scriptures, I don't know if it's Rome, or the US capital they're talking about.

    Be safe, and God bless.
  • John Russell on Revelation 5
    Revelations 5:13 says "every creature (as well an others noted) "in Heaven and on the earth"Animals have shown me God's goodness, special love, and kindness and love to other animals! Does this verse comfort us who love dearly our pets and would rejoice to see them in heaven?

    Tom,

    There are many scriptures that explicitly describe the beast. Example: even he is the eighth and is of the seven". For you to gain credibility over opinion, you must demonstrate who the beast is by behavior and physical location. Much is given about Jeremiah 15:8 throughout the Bible. Also, the beast courts 10 nations who give their power to the anti-christ for one hour.

    Sir looking at my reply I don't believe I answered your question my apologies.

    Brother Adam.

    That's a great way to put it!!

    I never looked at it like that, I guess one can say Christianity is not a religion but when man adds his belief systems or efforts to establish his contribution to this grace, Suddenly he has fallen from Grace and put himself under a religion.

    In this case I believe the first act religion is when Adam and Eve tried to Clothe themselves.

    Also Abraham and Sarah showed an act of religion when they agreed to have a child by Sarah's handmaid, for the heir, when the heir was supposed to come by promise. I believe When you try to add to the Grace of God by adding some man made condition you put yourself under a religion and have fallen from grace.

    God bless.

    When Christ returns, He will defeat the remaining armies of the world. America is not among these armies. America didn't survive. anti-christ destroyed Mystery Babylon.

    The Jews reverend the Name of YHWH so much that they use Adonai instead.

    ( LORD.) The Jehovah witnesses put the name Jehovah back in every where they figured it was taken out, "PLUS" in verses it doesn't go to deny the deity of Christ.

    That's their main pitch when saying they have the best translation.

    I hope that helps.

    God bless.

    Hi Sister Dianne.

    Yes, I know you didn't say greater in ability,

    but I just wanted to touch on that while this verse is presented because there's some out there that use that verse in that way.

    God bless.

    To me, everyone has a religion, because everyone holds certain beliefs to explain their worldview on life. Atheism is a religion too and atheists believe certain things to explain why they think they exist. Political ideologies are some people's religion, for example some hold their faith and hope in is government. Some will censor, edit, gaslight to try to make their belief seem believable and true. People throughout history have made up and worshipped false gods, so people inventing a belief system as their own twisted religion isn't anything new. Christianity is a religion. Some seem to hold a negative connotation towards that word and assume it only means works, but I don't buy into that. If you look up the word religion in the dictionary Christianity fits the definition exactly, and everyone else has a religion (belief system) too, even if they say they don't.

    Dwight My understanding in the context if two people are married and don't believe but one of them gets born again and the other decides to leave the believer is not held accountable. On the other hand one can get born again and the other stays verses 13 +14. Divorce is not Gods Will.

    I've heard it said by radio preachers that on the day Jesus Rode in to town on the baby donkey was on April 6th. Is it in scripture

    Hey Fred,

    I understand, there is an old expression "into the weeds", it is used in different ways with different meanings. Sometimes when we get off the beaten path and into the weeds and examine details we mostly look over, our eyes and ears open to the Holy Spirit and strengthens our faith and shines a light on things that lead to better understandings.

    God sometimes uses the least to make the largest impact, like Paul, he considered himself the least of the apostles.

    It is a pretty good guess Paul was dehydrated, he had no food or water for three days. Without water for three days in that country, he was probably about ready to give up the ghost, but he was praying. He possibly looked like a wilted flower on a hot July day.

    Ananias knew what kind of man Saul/Paul was and he was probably thinking I don't know about this, Saul/Paul has the authority to lock us all up. But Jesus assured Ananias He was in control and Saul/Paul was chosen to do His purpose and bear His name before the Gentiles. Ananias probably said, thank you Lord, ok, let's do it.

    May we walk in the Holy Spirit of truth,

    Thanks brother! Yes, I meant to type Luke 3:17. It's a little harder typing on a phone!

    Christianity I do not believe is a religion its a Father taking care of the family he called out of the darkness of this world.
  • Thomas Messimer - in Reply
    I can't disagree with anything you have said. America being the melting pot presents it's own problems. As I recall, the Lord is not too keen with the concept of mingling and for good reason. Every time they mingled they ended up worshiping idols and hearkening to Baal. And there was great shock and misery as a result of God's wrath. I believe the world has fallen in such a way. There is no question in my mind that the world is under judgement.

    Most people feel and have been told that Gog/Magog are Russia. I don't really believe this as my other responses indicated. That said, I feel that Russia along with many nations will comprise Satan's army at Armageddon.

    Jesse Scripture in Romans 7:14-25 Paul by revelation gave a really good summation that we all deal with, thank God there's a day coming when we will be released from this body of death.
  • Dianne
    A great example of any man made religion is Jeremiah 2:13, Our God is a fountain of living water religion is nothing but broken cisterns, also God was talking to His People We have the fountain through Jesus Christ.
  • Saint Dan
    is there a concordance to the apocrypha?
  • Fred - in Reply on Acts 15
    you may have confused me with Donald. That is ok, I like hearing the conversations, I sure Jesus did too! Listening seems to be the hardest, one thing for sure reading the gospel can never get old!
  • Dianne - in Reply on John 14
    S Spencer I will be clearer from now on never mean't greater in ability that's impossible. First mistake I ever made in my life. NOT!
  • James Reardon - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Chris,

    Cancel that, I just saw your last sentence. That's how easy it is to write a conflicting post.

  • James Reardon - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Chris,

    Not so, KJV has accounts of "Jehovah" being used:

    Psalms 83:18

    That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

    Isaiah 12:2

    Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

    Exodus 6:3

    And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

    Isaiah 26:4

    Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

    Phillip Paul in the epistles addresses the believers as saints those God separated out of the darkness of this world and into the glorious gospel of redemption and salvation. We are called this in all the church epistles, I'll believe what God Says
  • Dianne - in Reply on Numbers 23:19
    Glenn I've always considered religion as mans way of getting to God works ,works,works, Jesus Christ was God way of Getting the Family a Father wanted Grace,Grace,Grace. It's interesting that the first time in the scripture that God is called a Father is by Jesus Christ, from what i've seen. Best definition I've ever heard of grace was divine unmerited favour God to man.
