    Thank you for the encouragements. Amen.

  • Paul Bennett on Acts 2:41
    What actually is the true meaning of "praying in tongues? Is it praying in actual known languages that you yourself have not been taught, or in a language that no one understands except by interpretation given by God?

    Thank you!


  • Quaintance on Psalms 27
    This is one of my favorite Psalms. This lets you know it is alright to trust him because he got us covered and that he does give us a way of escape and that is through him. All we have to do is trust him, never give up and make sure you are his and have accepted him as your personal savior. Pray without ceasing. He is truly the head of my life.
  • M.J on Psalms 46
    Who else likes this chapter..?
  • T - in Reply on Genesis 1

    I see that when you first approach someone you will "attack" using bold statements through personal words. When you are asked questions about your response you will grab any "relevant" scripture you can find and post it. You won't use your own words to give an answer in response. This means one thing.. your heart is hardened and biased. You seem to come in here to confront and cause abrasion. I believe you know this.

    Since you won't respond heres but one scripture I will give you, sir;

    Galatians 3:26. What does that scripture mean to you? Not my words, it is directly from THE word.

    I pray for you to find peace within your heart and to overcome whatever spirit is causing abrasion and separation in your thoughts.

    God Bless
  • Stephende - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Yes, very Paulish explanation. I am a atudent of the Torah, which offers no blanket exoneration, but a warning to all of the terrible and awsome power of El Shaddai. He is a heart knower and a rewarder, but also a destroyer of those who act callously against the laws of God dictated to Moses for public consumption. Even though the KJB and the Torah relate the same history, they are a remarkably dissimilar. The Torah is straightforward without antiquated language. It lacks the story of Jesus and the obscure direction that Paul presents regarding the love of God and His directions for happiness on earth.
  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 27:11
    The Lord delights in the man or woman that has a teachable spirit - the one that admits to their lack and yearns for the truth of God's word. Godly wisdom flows to the man that is humble in heart, meek in spirit and gentle in demeanour, for true wisdom from above is born of a childlike attitude and received by the one that submits to the Lord's will - desirous to learn His works and ways.The godly posture of this psalmist is a lowly heart on bended knee before the throne of God's grace, where he humbly pleads, teach me your way, O Lord and guide me along the straight path of wisdom and truth and instruct me on the correct way of righteous holiness.There are many today that lie in wait to trip and trap the man or woman that is placing their trust in the Lord. There are many that would twist truth or lay a cruel snare to entrap or ridicule. But the one that seeks to ensnare will become entangled in his own evil ploys, for the one that has a firm foothold on Christ will not stumble but be lead along a straight path, away from any set traps and hidden snares.The Lord delights in the one that has a teachable spirit and a humble heart that confesses their lack to Him. And He rejoices over the one that seeks first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, with meekness of heart and a gentle spirit, for that man or woman will be like a flourishing tree planted by the river of life, whom the Lord will lead along a good and level pathway.We Pray in Jesus name.Father God, please teach ME Your ways, and guide me along the best path for my life, for without You my feet would slip - and I will give You all the praise and the glory in Jesus name, AMEN.
  • Donna Williams - in Reply on Genesis 1:27
    I believe that the word "suitable" to put it in simple terms means, that she was of the same kind as Adam. For every species in the animal kingdom, God created male and female for them to reproduce in the earth, however for Adam there was no female version of him.

    Hence, God spoke, "it is not good that the man should be alone".....
  • Wenmar - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Flossy Ann, Life is hard....take it one day (or even one hour) at a time. You are correct in wanting believers to pray for you. Over 20 years ago I woke up one day with a terrible hangover and worse...a feeling that I may have hurt someone (verbally) with my drunken behavior. When I asked this person he said "What are you talking about? You were hilarious last night.", but there was a feeling of shame that I couldn't stand.

    While I wasn't an alcoholic in the usual sense, I had been out carousing for 20 straight nights. And this was a pattern for about 15 years. And often I had feelings of worthlessness so I did abuse alcohol and this constant carousing to "feel good"..but it was a fakeout, a counterfeit!

    That morning, before I lifted my aching head from the pillow, I called out to God, whom I did not know personally, and gave him control of my life and just said " I don't want to feel like this anymore!!" No, it wasn't instantaneous but before I knew it I had lost my desire for this lifestyle and began getting to know my savior. I praise God that he delivered me from that life. And more know my savior personally and to know that I will live in His kingdom with Him eternally!!! Unspeakable joy! Stay in the Word and keep praying!!!
  • Donna - in Reply on Job 13:15
    Mishael, thank you for your encouragement. I will not be moved by the adversary of my soul.

    To be honest at first I thought I would ignore the comments that were made, but I believe sometimes we need to address wrong behavior and allow the Holy Spirit to bring the conviction of sin.

    I do agree and did pray for him, trusting God to lead him to repentance.
  • Carleton - in Reply on John 3:16
    A born again believer should be able to completely understand this hymn in their hearts including that fifth wound: Charles Wesley "Arise My Soul Arise" Likewise a born again believer should also be able to understand full the hymn "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" especially the line in the lyric that says: "Sorrow and love flow mingled down".

    Arise my Soul Arise, shake of your guilty fears; The bleeding sacrifice, in my behalf appears; Before the throne my Surety stands, Before the throne my Surety stands. My name is written in His hands.

    He ever lives above, for me to intercede; His all redeeming love, His precious blood to plead; His blood atoned for every race, His blood atoned for every race, And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

    Five bleeding wounds he bears; received on Calvary; They pour effectual prayers; they strongly plead for me:" Forgive him O forgive," they cry, "Forgive him, O forgive," they cry. "Nor let the ransomed sinner die!"

    The Father hears Him pray, His dear anointed One: He cannot turn away the presence of his Son; The Spirit answers to the blood, The Spirit answers to the blood And tells me I am born of God.

    My God is reconciled; His pardoning voice I hear; He owns me for a child; I can no longer fear

    With confidence I now draw nigh, With confidence I now draw nigh, And "Father, Abba, Father," cry.

  • Andy G van den Berg on Acts 26
    On Acts 26:20

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting, repentings) is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Revelation 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

  • Carleton - in Reply on John 3:16
    Hello David, I have written in this discussion my personal born again experience which can be described literally moment by moment and can be described symbolically as a pattern to how Jesus's work at Calvary and how he fulfilled the law. I wrote my literal born again testimony on this discussion on July 23. I am not sure if it can be pulled up for your reference. As far as obedience, ONLY, as a reasonable service I walk a very close walk as well as my family and brethren in even the smallest matters such as taking harmful financial loss to benefit an upset working relationship or neighborly relationship. What sets ,any people off is not the testimony of how one is born again but how they walk after being born again with their relationships with the world and their testimony of grace and love for every single neighbor no matter that neighbors current condition. The Lord will always make a way of escape of some kind not to take revenge or act violently even in words or thoughts.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Job 13:15
    Don't be disturbed or driven away by Will. I think I know who he is.

    Come back here when you can. People from all over the world visit in here. Don't respond to attackers. Just pray for them.

  • Daughter of Christ on Isaiah 41
    verse 13, thx Lotd God!
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    Jesus taught us to pray the Lords Prayer. I was taught, after each sentence to pause and worship, like: Hallowed be thy Name...and then you add your worship to that statement.

    Sometimes I put on worship music and sing with the choir. It loosens up our inward parts so we can sing, or cry, and begin to release all those cares that have us bound up tight.

    Dark thoughts are demons that don't want you to worship God and Jesus. If you start serenading God; the demons are going to leave!
  • Joseph Burger - in Reply on Genesis 1:27
    My question referred to Genesis 2v20.

    Meaning of "suitable helper" in that sentence.

    Does that mean (God) had a choice to choose from "other " women as helper or wife?
  • Growing Closer to Your Father - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    You read His Word, with new born again eyes. To see His love unfolded throughout our history with Him.

    To run the limits of wickedness until in agony of soul we bow our knee and ask Him to come in and help us finally. And He does.

    I had to become very old to hear a Fathers heart poured out in the Book of Lamentations. His sorrow over a nation and a people who would stubbornly reject Him time and time again. The pure pressure of Gods heart would almost make my heart implode, because me and people He loved would just wander away.

    How could we be such rockheads? And yet every time we turn and mourn the sins we did that drove us away from Him, is what drives us back into fellowship with Him.

    He is so Holy, He cannot look upon sin; or hasten to us. He had to give His very own Son, to mediate for us. A Son that was willing to show us what Father is like.

    How, please tell me how can we just step over that, and ask unfeeling questions like: is inter-racial marriage ok?

    And then you want someone else to search the Bible for you .... because you don't search the scriptures yourself.

    God used to spend the early evenings, walking with and talking with Adam. He still does that With people who have their hearing tuned in, by way of The Holy Spirit.

    You can have that relationship that you truly want, but are afraid to lean into and make it happen. Turn the sounds of the world OFF, sit in the floor by your bed, still your mind, listen. Pray what is on your mind. Listen.

    Sing something your spirit loves. I sing an old song named: and He walks with me and He talks with me, and tells me that I'm His own.... Other days I may cry. Why? Because God the Father is what the heart longs to know. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father; and you can sit and ask Him to pray for people who desperately need Him now. Like: remember my brother in your prayers, for he needs a miracle in his relationships with those that love him and want him to be saved.
  • Sj on Genesis 1
    Genesis 1:30

    "And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so

    John 6:63

    "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."
  • Teina72 - in Reply on Genesis 1:14
    Jesus is God manifest in the flesh, many people saw Him and they lived.
  • David - in Reply on John 3:16
    "At Calvary, the water poured from his side and intermingled with his blood and washed our sins away by faith in our repentance looking from up from the wilderness to his healing by repentance. The full result is His Spirit entered into our earthly tabernacle and filled us with peace and understanding."

    ??????? eh? Sir, the pasting together of partial Scriptures and concepts in an attempt to create your own Gospel is what Paul warned of in the opening of Galatians... twice. If you want an UNDENIABLE EXPERIENCE with God, and receive the REAL Holy Spirit the way they did in Acts, then OBEY THE GOSPEL that is confirmed by the Apostles in the Book of Acts. Only then will you really see what your relationship with the Lord can be!

    If you want Biblical results, do Biblical things in Biblical ways. :) Hope this helps!
  • Carleton - in Reply on John 3:16
    These scriptures in John 3:3 are a great comfort to those who are seeking peace with God and man.

    Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    John 3:4

    Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

    John 3:5

    Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    At Calvary, the water poured from his side and intermingled with his blood and washed our sins away by faith in our repentance looking from up from the wilderness to his healing by repentance. The full result is His Spirit entered into our earthly tabernacle and filled us with peace and understanding.

    This Peace which is harmless, undefiled, separated from willing sin is God in man and will carry the new man by the guidance of his Holy Spirit to the finish of this earthly race.
  • Mimi - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Thank you for your response :).

    I will look that verse and the others in a little bit.

    Yes, my dream was beautiful I will never forget it. It got my attention and I kept searching. I'm so happy to tell you a few years later, we started going to Church and my husband and I both were saved, Thank God. God works in mysterious ways. Not long after that day, my 2 brothers and a sister in law was saved. Then it wasn't long when my daughter, 2 nieces and a nephew was saved. We all kept praying for my Dad to go to church. Many years later him and my mom were at my aunt's house in Kentucky.They talked him into going with them to their little country church.Praise the Lord my Dad got saved and was Baptized.So thankful my mom was with him.She had prayed and shed many tears over the years for him. A few more years later, my dad passed away. But even though it was so so sad losing him, I know by God's Grace and His never ending love, our family will be together
  • Harold Edward Willett - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    I agree Mike. I've forgiven but I haven't forgot I never will but good has replaced much more in my life that I would have been given otherwise. One of my family members passed away not long ago and no one called me except for the one Uncle my dad's brother that I have so much respect for. He told me he had heard about it so I sent to that funeral and if I hadn't said hello to those church going relative's they wouldn't have ever spoken to me but I did the right thing. They thought she my mother passed away my life with be horrible hahaha little did they know. One can forgive but one can also stay away from those that cause them to stumble which is excatly what I've done. I'm so much better off. Now I have the Best friend's I could ever ask for. First time in my life I've been so happy an it's all because of Jesus no questions about it whatsoever at all. Best to you my friend
