  • Ray on Proverbs 4:2
    Who are the gentiles and Samaritans that Jesus instructs his disciples not to go near? and why does he instruct them to not go near them? When he himself spoke to a Samaritan woman and said if you know who this was, you would ask for living water?
  • Adam on Jeremiah 32
    Amen. God is all powerful, all loving. People get weird ideas in their head about expecting God to do this or that otherwise... but God isn't a genie in a lamp. People make up random expectations of what they think he should be like or do or not do and it's mostly logical fallacies. God loved us enough to give us life, air in our lungs, a place to life, family, friends, and we will be tested and have trials while here, which tests our character. That is guaranteed. People seem to expect everything to go perfect in their life for some unknown reason, but there's nowhere in the Bible saying we're guaranteed a flawless life, the opposite in fact. We can have joy regardless. Philippians 4:10-13
  • Adam - in Reply on James 2
    Satan is the father of lies and he likes to deceive Christians into thinking they don't have to stop sinning, that they can stay in the world and partake of its evil without consequence, because, hey, 'once saved, always saved'. But is that true? Which circumstance is satan more likely behind: that he deceives Christians into avoiding sin and being stronger followers of Jesus than they need to be, or that he deceives Christians into believing their sin doesn't matter and they can enjoy unlimited sinning without consequence? Obviously the latter is the one satan uses to deceive and we hear this even preached in churches. Jesus himself said otherwise: John 14:15

    I'd have to look up some stuff first. Christians face the Bema Seat. We've already been judged. Jesus is our Advocate. Dead to sin, Alive in Christ.
  • Adam - in Reply on Malachi 4
    Hello, it sounds like you feel frustrated about how you perceive God. Why do you assume God doesn't care, though? Did God not give mankind freewill and the right to do good and evil from the beginning of time? And did Adam and Eve not deliberately choose to sin and have the curse be on the earth (thorns, childbearing pains, struggle, etc)? Is life not extremely short and a test? Are we not all going to die soon regardless? So, does the timing of that death really determine whether one thinks God is 'good' or not? Those who are angry at God for disease, are they equally grateful to God for their life, family, health? Or just 1-sided entitlements? Why is God allowing things to happen "bad"?

    I will go back and find Lynn.
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Hi Mickey, yes, context does matter. It sounds like you're referring to 2 Corinthians 5:8 in which Paul says he would 'willing rather' or would rather... be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. He didn't say that everyone upon death is instantly with the Lord and skips judgment or that the dead don't rise to meet Jesus in the clouds. Instead he said would 'rather' be with the Lord. Other verses that say that we will each first face a day of Judgment. 1 Corinthians 4:5 says Jesus will come, then everyone will be judged upon the judgment seat of Christ 2 Corinthians 5:10, and dead will rise to meet the Lord 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

    I don't really remember that conversation. Looks like two different comments. I'll watch that. Sorry.
  • Why does God not care Part 5 on Malachi 4
    But, if these cannot convince Him to help them, ever, they continue to exist for the wicked's purposes-no more worth or value than a pet dog-undesired, kicked in the sides (not physically, for me, but others know that pain), and mocked by the whole Satanic family, only good for to be ganged up on (for the family to have activity to bond over and to share as a team), and used. I'm sick of Satan's tares' (Matthew 13:36-43) tearing up the earth and all it's bountiful blessings, created BY God, for the benefice of man, animals, and insects, and for the displaying of HIS glorious brilliance in artistry, engineering, and design, that man KNOW God DOES exist. But these TARES, having God's power
  • Mickey on Psalms 1
    2 Corinthians 12:19-20

    Again think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ:
    But we do all things, dearly beloved, for
    your EDIFYING.
    For I fear lest when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as you would not; lest there be DEBATES, envyings, wraths, STRIFES, BACKBITING, whispering, swellings, TUMULTS.
    Keep studying these scriptures so we can lay to rest who is acceptable to be born again. Spirit of Adoption.

    Romans 1:16, Romans 1:16, Romans 2:10, Romans 9:24-26, Romans 10:12, Romans 11:21

    There's too much arguing. It's not about Jews versus Gentiles or Greeks. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.
  • Why does God not care Part 4 on Malachi 4
    They MUST know EVERY word, thought, conversation, prayer, hope, dream of their prey, in order to destroy, for pleasure, and their purposes every hope, dream, and goal of their pray EVER succeeding in being TRULY (COMPLETELY/TOTALLY) FREE of them, their control, and their destructive hand(s). I'm SICK of the liars that masquerade as, and feign imitation of Christ's flock, going wheresoever Christ's goes, JUST as any other stalker! I mean NO disrespect to God. I am not angry with Him (was earlier, I think), thankfully, just weary, trapped, and tired. Some cannot escape WITHOUT the Mighty hand of God. But, if these cannot convince Him to help them, ever, they continue to exist for the wicked's
  • Why does God not care Part 3 on Malachi 4
    I'm sick of not being good enough (truly) to get my prayers answered by the LORD God on the matters of simply being ALLOWED TO become good enough to...get my OTHER prayers answered by the LORD God, one of which being able to converse with Him, and HEAR from Him, as did our brothers and fathers before us (Moses, King David, Abraham, etc). I'm MOST sick of the petty harassments of Satan's seed! They are abusers, and abusers HATE their chosen victims, but have an OBSESSIVE desire to control and to STALK! They MUST know EVERY word, thought, conversation, prayer, hope, dream of their prey, in order to destroy, for pleasure, and their purposes every hope, dream, and goal of their pray EVER succee
  • Why does God not care Part 2 on Malachi 4
    Why does God allow witches, magicians, sorcerers, wizards, and other wicked persons to impersonate Christians, preachers, Jewish priests, and others in trusted positions, allowing them to weary the very flock He entrusted them to shepherd and to serve? These today, being even worse than Eli the priest's sons (I Samuel 2:12-17), and the scribes and Pharisees of Christ's preaching days (Matthew 23:1-3 or Matthew 23 for God, the Son's entire speech). I'm just tired of all of the wicked getting away with doing SO MUCH to the innocent, and for God not revealing to men the truth about grave (but earthly) matters. I'm sick of not being good enough (truly) to get my prayers answered by the LORD God,
  • Why does God not care on Malachi 4
    Why does God not care about the victims of Satan's children (the tares spoken of by His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ), enough to hear the prayers of said victims? For all of my life, God has allowed Satan's seed to do harm to me, and to others, and God continues to give them more of His power, permission, and will to do even worse to even more. They play games that entail the death, torment, misery, and slandering of decent, innocent human beings, often to cover up their own perversions, often out of perversion. Why has God allowed Satan's to destroy His word via the heads of His temples, and via the corruption of His word? Why does God allow witches, magicians, sorcerers, wizards, and other
  • Kathy Sigmon on Job 3
    Bible verses that talk about viruses coming and going. Bible verses that talk about taking only what you need and not taking from your brother.
  • DAN - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Hi Judy; yes, there are animals in heaven; Revelation 19:11-14

    And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. If there is one, theres is more.

  • DAN - in Reply on Revelation 1
    ANGIE; before I accepted Jesus and made Him Lord of my life, the bible, to me, was like a strange language. The very minute I accepted Jesus His word became readable to me. Do not give in to satan. Jesus will open your eyes.
  • DAN - in Reply on Revelation 1
    absent from the body, present with the lord is a fact. Hebrews 9:27-28 King James Version (KJV) 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: there is no scripture to indicate we go anywhere but to Jesus.
  • Celestinepurham on Psalms 1
    I would love to read the bible
  • Lisa M - in Reply on James 2
    Our modern day evangelical churches are all preaching we are saved by faith alone and not works. This is not true. The whole theme of the New Testament tells a different story. We must be holy and live righteously. The early Christians taught this and it is everywhere in the scriptures. If our lives look like the rest of the world we are lost.
  • Tjeff on John 15:7
    I believe this the easiest verse to remember, very helpful, I trust in the word and keep it in me, then anything I ask it will be done in his name

    Matthew 15:24 But he (Jesus) answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    Amos 3:2 You (Israel) only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
    Revelation 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
    Just curious where the 13th gentile gate is to new Jerusalem?
  • S on James 1
    It don't matter what you think, it matters what God's word says. It matters what you think when you're inline with God's word. You're out of line In what I've read. Do you know Jesus by works or by faith? He who believes in him is not condemned. How do you know Jesus? Who sent Jesus? The Father. Who sent Peter to Cornelius? God. Cornelius was Gentile. Read the book of Acts and all the epistles. Read John 3:16. If you're a believer all things have passed away. You're a new creature. There is no Jew or Gentile according to the flesh. But you're a Jew inwardly if you believe in Jesus.
  • Adam - in Reply on James 1
    Jesus already said exactly who he came for. Luke 19:10, Mark 2:17. He came for the lost and sinners. Who is lost and a sinner? Romans 3:23 - Everyone. So, Jesus came for everyone- that's exactly what the Bible says. Jesus gave a firm warning to those who try to deceive others by twisting or denying what Jesus said: Mark 8:38, 1 John 2:22-23.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on James 1
    Every messianic jew I have conversed with claims the new testament was originally in Hebrew then mistranslated into Greek by antisemitic Greeks. There are thousands of New testament Greek manuscripts and ZERO Hebrew
    So is the new testament antisemitic? they claim it is. Read chapters of John 6 and John 8 see who Jesus was speaking to, not the Romans. I have a bachelors in theology and a masters degree in ministry. I have studied this issue in depth.
    Q: Did Jesus take the Kingdom of God from the Jews?

    A: Matthew 21:43 - Therefore say I (Jesus speaks to Jews) unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. GREEKS
  • Adam - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 7:14
    Good for you for being an encouragement to others- a light in a dark world is what we're called to be. Believing is usually a matter of the heart, not necessarily intellectual arguments. So, I would pray for him and just show love as a Christian would to others. When people see that light and your joy they will become curious and maybe open their heart to learning about Jesus. May God bless you!

    Yeshua is Lucifer per the Complete (Messianic) Jewish Bible by author David Stern
    The MORNING STAR (Lucifer in the KJV) who FELL from heaven is in Isaiah 14 who goes to the pit.
    Yeshua is the MORNING STAR of Revelation 22. This is what Messianic Jews teach and believe
    according to the Complete Jewish Bible by David Stern a messianic Jew.
    messianic Jews why do they HATE the name JESUS?
    Why do they refuse to be called Christians?
    Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
    Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
    whereby we must be saved
