    Thank you Jesse, I really just wanted vs 58 of John you did great! the Jews picked up stone because Jesus just proclaimed to them to be God......He was. He robed Himself in the only begotten Son(flesh) and dwelt amongst them. Thanks again in Christ,Gerald,
  • Gerald - in Reply on Romans 8
    ChrisE, thank you for responding! My friend I'm a little confused about your summary. You mentioned law/prophets lets begin there. I think it's safe to say that Moses was a prophet to be reckon with(according to old test. and new) that's what drove the Pharisees crazy about Jesus. According to "law" Jesus was behaving like a "mavrick" skirting around it but never breaking it always leaving them arguing among themselves about it. Well Jesus did say Matt. 5;17 I came not to destroy the law but fulfil it. Having said that lets take a look at what the law said about washing or baptizing. God told Moses the prophet in Exodus 30:15-17 that if the priest did NOT wash they were dead men. That was law. But fulfilling that law Jesus ( THE HIGH PRIEST) Hebrews 3:1-5 told John I need you to baptize me...(I'm going to the Altar{Calvary} eventually) and I need to be washed. If we are to be is followers, ambassadors, disciples, Christians or whatever and he(JESUS) was baptized shouldn't we then follow His example? In Christ, Gerald.
  • Randy on Romans 6:6
    But GOD be thanked, that we WERE sinners, but have obeyed that form of doctrine that was delivered us. Now, being made FREE from sin, we become servants of righteousness.
  • David on Psalms 40
    Be patient and wait on the Lord. He took me out of the evils of the world and set my feet a Rock.

    I must declare the wonderful works of God. I must learn to delight in the will of God. Yes, Lord your Law is in my heart.

    Mine iniquities have taken hold of me. Please deliver me Lord and help me.

    Thank you Lord for thinking about me constantly. Thank you for thou art my help and deliverer, Be thou magnified.

    God Bless everyone.. August 11, 2021

    Christ sacrifice pardons man's sin. At first I thought the reading spoke of Isaiah, but now see it refers to Jesus Christ.

    Hi Thomas.

    I will give you what I picked up from 2 separate studies. Nicolaitans is 2 Greek words combined that means rule the people. It's where you see those who were in the Church in the clergy would rule over the people.

    Writing to Ephesus

    In Revelation 2:6 The Lord had issue the deeds of the Nicolaitans.

    Revelation 2:6. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

    By the time we come to Pergamos those deeds became doctrine.

    Revelation 2:15. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

    Note: I have no knowledge of Greek.

    do your research.

    God bless.

    Dianne,

    Yes, amen! That's what it means to live by faith (PEITHO/Persuasion). We believe because it is His Spirit that persuades us to believe. Without His indwelling Spirit persuading us, we would be no different than those who are perishing, and it would all be foolishness to us ( 1 Corinthians 1:18).
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 21
    Hi Dgjot.

    Let's consider verse 7 this is one Group that did accept Christ.

    Revelation 21:7.

    He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

    These in Revelation 21:8 never accepted Christ

    Revelation 21:8.

    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    Here's a parallel.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-11. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU: BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED in the name of the Lord Jesus, "AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD."
  • Michele long on Psalms 91
    What version of psalm 91 is best ?
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 20
    Hi Brenda.

    No to both your questions.

    This belief comes from a serious lack of studying the Bible.

    For one the plagues is from the Lord to punish the "Inhabitants" on earth or those who dwell on Earth.

    The .mark of the beast is forced by the antichrist.

    If God is giving the plagues and the antichrist is forcing the vaccine wouldn't that be a little odd?

    Revelation 15:6. And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

    Read Revelation 13:16-17. to find the. mark of the beast.

    Read Revelation Ch 15 and Ch 16:1_14..to find the plagues.

    And if you noticed If the vaccine was the mark of the beast it would have came before the plagues/coronavirus.

    God bless.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Revelation 21
    Dgjot, ask the Spirit to give you spiritual eyes instead of natural eyes.

    John 6:63 It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing, THE WORDS (Christ is the WORD) that I speak unto you, they (the words, Christ) are SPIRIT, and they (the words, Christ) are LIFE.

    ...the fearful...unbelieving...murderers (if you hate your brother, you are a murderer ( 1 John 3:15)....

    Shall have their part in the lake of fire (THE WORDS ARE CHRIST)

    Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire (THE WORDS ARE CHRIST)

    Colossians 1:27 ....this mystery.... CHRIST IN YOU....(living lake of fire) you are IN IT NOW.

    Isaiah 10:16 ...and under his glory (you are the glory of God) he shall kindle a BURNING like the burning of a FIRE (THE WORDS ARE CHRIST).

    Everyone is going to be judged in the WORDS ( in Christ, in the Fire (lake of)

    The fire burns the trash and purifies you.

    The fire is GOOD and necessary.

    The fearful no longer fear, the unbelieving, BELIEVE, you love you enemies.

    Don't call GOOD (the lake of fire), EVIL.

    can anyonbe tell me about the Nicolaitans please
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Romans 1
    Hi Peggy,

    I would like to add to what Brother Jesse said.

    There are some that believe and teach that when you are saved you can do what ever they want because you are saved by Love and grace. So they continue on in their sin. But the scripture says otherwise.

    Romans 6:1-2. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

    God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

    ( Continue reading Romans 6:3-10. )

    When we are born again Christians we have been baptized into the body of believers, "We all have been Identified with the death and resurrection of Christ.

    Were no longer under complete control by the motions of the flesh

    Romans 7:5. For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

    But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

    This brings on a new nature and attitude towards sin. The Holyspirit convicts us and empowers us. Not to perfection but a pure heart. There should be evidence of fruit in your life and conviction against ALL sin. I would do a serious study in Romans Ch 6. Ch 7. and Ch 8.

    God bless.

    Thank you so much for those encouraging words, it really means a lot. I will do the daily devotions. God bless you.
  • Dianne - in Reply on Romans 8
    Hi jesse In light of what you shared in Gospel of John 14: 8+9 you would think that after everything they eyewitnessed they got, thank God that they got it at pentecost and made available to us. To think we have never physically seen Him and we believe His word. That's always amazed me.
  • Dianne - in Reply on Revelation 21
    Dgot Thinking negative or evil thoughts is one thing carrying it out is a whole different ball game, in 1 Corinthians 13:5 its says the love of God thinketh no evil. There is nobody that's got that mastered so don't feel like your alone, also nobody walks perfectly by the spirit 24-7. We do the best and put on Gods word in your mind believe and listen to his spirit then let go and let God. In 1 John 3: 19-21 God knows your heart, and he also knows we don't think correctly 24-7 that's why we have saviour. God wants to deliver us more than we want to accept it. Remember its all grace not works. God Bless

  • Dianne - in Reply on Romans 1
    Hi peggy Confessing Romans 10:9+10 the reason why God says believe in your heart that word heart is the word cardia that which you believe in the very core of your being. The same usage of heart is used in Proverbs 3:5+6 notice verse 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear or respect the lord and depart from evil. If you respect you stop doing things against what you respect. There is no excuse. God Bless
  • Jesse - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 12:9
    Lynn,

    Paul is saying I'm not going to change my basic principle. I'm not coming there to all of a sudden be a burden to you. I'm not going to become like all those other false teachers. But this is now the third time. We know that Paul went to Corinth once, recorded for us in Acts Chapter 18, where they received the Lord, and he established the church there.

    There was a second time that he was going to go but the Lord had other plans. And so the false teachers jumped all over that one too. "He said he was going to come and see you? Where is he? He didn't make it did he? He doesn't keep his word!"

    That's why earlier Paul said our yes and our no is in the Lord, meaning we will be there if it's the Lord's will. So the false teachers made a big deal out of it. So now this is the third time that he's getting ready to come to them.

    So then we have the concept under motivation. He says "for I seek not yours, but you. Wow! The word you is literally your soul. Paul is saying I don't seek your money or your possessions, or anything else from you. I seek your soul. Talk about conviction! It doesn't matter to Paul if they have money or not. Paul's concern was over people's souls.

    Then he gives the reason, "For the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children. So Paul is saying "You're the children. You're not supposed to support me, I'm supposed to support you."

    That's kind of backwards to the direction we find ourselves in today. But leadership is supposed to support the people, not financially, but with the ministry of the gospel, just as if they were his children. What requirements do you put on your children? Responsibility? Yes! But don't kick your children out just because they are broke.

    Hopefully this helps!
  • Dennis J Cherry on Revelation 3
    Revelations 12:7-9 And There Was A War In Heaven: Michael and His Angels Fought Against The Dragon; and The Dragon Fought and His Angels, And Prevailed Not; Neither Was Their Place Found Any More In Heaven. And The Great Dragon Was Cast Out, That Old Serpent, Called The Devil, and Satan, Which Deceiveth The Whole World: he was cast out Into The Earth, and His Angels Were Cast Out With Them.

    Ecclesiasticus Chapter 1 Out Of The KJV Apocrypha

    The Prologue of The Wisdom of Jesus The Son of Sirach. Whereas many and great things have been delivered unto us by the law and the prophets, and by others that have followed their steps, for the which things Israel ought to be commended for learning and wisdom; and whereof not only the readers must needs become skillful themselves, but also they that desire to learn be able to profit them which are without, both by speaking and writing: My Grandfather Jesus, when he had much given himself to the reading of the law, and the prophets, and other books of our fathers, and had gotten therein good judgment, was drawn on also himself to write something pertaining to learning and wisdom; to the intent that those which are desirous to learn, and are addicted to these things, might profit much more in living according to the law.

    Look @ Isaiah 7:10-15 Prophesied 700 Before Christ Virgin Birth and Fulfillment Of ABBA'S Son Was Born; MATTHEW 1:22-23; Butt The Anti-Christ DeceiveMankind To Call Him Jesus & Not To Use These Isaiah 7:10-15; Now Look At This Scriptures In Matthew 1:22-23; Why Does The World Call Him Jesus from The Latin Version / Translation IESUS Which Was Used In The 1611 KJV Bible From 1611 Until 1629 & In 1630 Some Anti-Christs/ JezeritesChanged It To Jesus????

    Revealed To Me From Our ABBA; J.E.S.U.S.= Jehovah s.e.n.t. Emmanuel 2 Save Us Sinners;

    "J.E.H.O.V.A.H.= Jehovah, Emmanuel & Holy-Ghost, Overturned Verdict Against Humanity"
  • Jesse - in Reply on Romans 1
    Peggy,

    When a person makes a decision to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, they must repent of their sinful lifestyle, meaning they must make a decision to change the direction of their life. If that person has truly received Christ, and is being led by His Spirit, they would no longer continue on in such a sinful state. So if a homosexual continues on in his sinful disgusting lifestyle, I would say that person does not have the Spirit of Christ in them, meaning that person is not saved, regardless of their claim of being a Christian. If the homosexual has no conviction in his heart that what he is doing is sinful in the eyes of the Lord, I would say that person does not have the Spirit of God in them! For those who say they have received Christ, or that they are a Christian (a Christ follower), the bible tells us that we will know them by their fruit. So if I see someone who says they have received Christ, and I know they are still involved in such a hideous act with no conviction nor willingness to stop and fully surrender to Christ, right away the "red flag" is going up. That to me does not demonstrate the fruit of God's Spirit working in that person's life and would tell me that that person is not being led by the Spirit at all, and that they have an illegitimate claim at being a true born again believer.
  • GRACEambassador ChrisE - in Reply on Romans 8
    Gerald, my Precious friend, I'll take your question "2: How should we be baptized?" Better

    is to first ask: Does God Require water baptism, today? IF yes, then find out "how."

    IF not, then no need to find that out, Correct? Here is my "Summary study" on this Important Issue:

    Prophecy/Law for ISRAEL: The Twelve Were Sent to water baptize!

    The TWO Main, of 12 baptisms =

    A) water, For remission of sins/induction into Israeli"priesthood!" ( Matthew 3:5-6) ( Mark 1:4) ( Luke 3:3) ( John 1:31) ( Luke 7:29-30) ( Acts 10:37) ( Matthew 28:19) ( Mark 16:16) ( Acts 2:38) ( Acts 22:16) ( Ezekiel 36:25) ( John 18:35) ( Exodus 19:6)

    +

    B) WITHThe Holy Spirit, Poured Out By CHRIST, for power, signs And wonders! ( Isaiah 44:3) ( Matthew 3:11) ( Mark 1:8) ( Mark 16:17-18) ( Luke 24:49) ( Acts 2:17-18) ( Acts 2:38) ( Acts 8:15-17) ( Acts 11:16) Prophecy/Law

    Rightly Divided ( 2 Timothy 2:15) From Things ThatDiffer!:

    Mystery/GRACE! =our "apostle to the Gentiles" for The Body Of CHRIST:

    Paul WasNot Sent to water baptize! Why Not?:

    Today: Only ONE Baptism = "BY" The ONE Spirit = God's OPERATION,Spiritually Identifying members Into The ONE Body Of CHRIST!! ( Ephesians 4:5) ( Colossians 2:12) ( Galatians 3:27) ( Romans 6:3-4) ( 1 Corinthians 12:13) MYSTERY/GRACE! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Conclusion: God's ONE Baptism Today? = ONEOR, EQUALS TWO?

    Is it not Possible That God'sAnswer Of "No water baptism, for us Today," Under HIS Pure GRACE, absolutely "Solves" theMany Severely DIVIDED denominations' Confusion!?

    Please be Richly Encouraged, enlightened, exhorted, and edified!

    Thank you Brother Jesse.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Romans 1
    Brother Adam; by God's grace, I would request you meditate on the words you spoke.

    Quote: ....those who will be saved will be saved by grace. But most people won't be saved.....

    Meditate on grace.

    This is one of those truths that leaves us boxed in with no exit.

    God's work or man's work.

    No response necessary, the Spirit reveals.

    GBU

    Earl,

    I believe all who have experienced a spiritual rebirth are one. We are one body in Christ Jesus. As far as your question goes, I can't say that I believe that.
  • Dgjot on Revelation 21
    Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

    Does that verse apply to the unsaved exclusively, or does it apply to the "saved" (but somewhat backslidden)?

    I'm thoroughly confused. For years I believed in "once-saved-always-saved" but I don't any more. Neither do I believe that if someone has prayed the "sinners prayer" once, that they are always saved- either.

    The verse says the fearful...unbelieving...murderers... shall have their share in the Lake of Fire.

    I've never taken a life (murdered) but often I've wished death on the wicked. So much so that for weeks I felt this heaviness weighing on me. It would not go away. I was terrified. My waking thoughts were of damnable things. I asked God every day, "What is this? Why do I feel this doom and gloom?"

    God gave me an answer.> In having those wicked thoughts, I caused the Holy Spirit to grieve.

    I told a friend of mine what I was feeling and she told me to read Romans 8:1

    "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."

    I've read that verse many times. I was a C.I.N.O. (Christian-in-name-only) When I read my Bible, I only read the "feel good" verses. I thought that no matter what I did, Jesus had me covered. Why would Jesus keep sticking up for a habitual sinner like me?

    Most of my sins are in my head: I think of doing things that I would never actually do in real life. But, you can't fool the Holy Spirit of God.

    Is it too late for me? Am I doomed?
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Romans 8
    Amen and Amen, Brother Jesse:

    In you last paragraph, you quoted Matthew concerning the Father and Jesus being ONE; WE will ALSO be ONE in them (not in the flesh we now suffer in, but when we have departed this flesh).

    Do you BELIEVE we will be God in the same way both the Father is God and the Son is God?

    I BELIEVE we will; but DIFFERENT GLORIES.
  • GRACEambassador ChrisE - in Reply on Romans 1
    Precious friend, my understanding is that The ALL-Sufficient BLOOD Of The Saviour "Cleanses us from ALL sin," and we receive God's FREE Gift Of ETERNAL Life, at the Very Moment of faith/belief/trust In The SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST, and His Death {BLOOD}, Burial, And His Resurrection. God Establishes This ETERNAL "Relationship" With us.

    ( 1 Corinthians 15:3-4) ( Ephesians 2:5-9) ( Romans 3-5) and others in Romans - Philemon.

    What we do, or fail to do, is in our Calling To "fellowship" With The LORD JESUS CHRIST.

    ( 1 Corinthians 1:9). This is for "rewards or lack thereof" At Judgment ( 1 Corinthians 3:7-15)

    Be Encouraged, Exhorted, Enlightened, and Edified In HIS Precious Word!
