  • Annysia on 2 Kings 24
    Jehoiakim is an example of a leader who does not have God in mind when he does his actions. Jehoiakim's people were arrogant in thinking that God was on their side, but because He knew they were not repentant, he did not support their cause to become an independent kingdom. From then on, more and more evil kings ruled Jerusalem that believed only in false prophets.

    This chapter tells us that without God guiding you in your actions and listening only in what you want to hear, nothing good will come out of it.

    Thank you for your prayers
  • Annysia on 2 Chronicles 23
    Jehoiada is someone that stands up for what is right. He did all he could to bring back the line of David (the true rulers) back to the throne and fight against tyranny. He was "just" a priest, but he stood by his believes despite the dangers it posed to him. In the end, he succeeded. God was on his side and he brought the line of David back to the throne.

    This chapter really shows you how important it is to stick to your beliefs and if you're on God's side, He'll definitely support you throughout.
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Should people who commit moral crimes not be accountable for it? Let's say someone severely hurt you or your loved one, would you not want justice? Adam and Eve sinned against God which they were told in advance what the punishment was. Sure enough they sinned anyway which created mortality for all mankind. Now everyone dies regardless, just timing is the only undetermined factor. And when people were extremely wicked and doing nonstop evil and oppressing each other 24/7 with violence, rape, orgies, mass murder, basically creating a hell on earth before Jesus saved everyone, at times God did punish them by taking their lives early.
  • Annysia on Psalms 142
    Reading the chapter of Psalm reminds me of Christian songs I would listen to as a child, I remember the comforting feeling of the lyrics because it's as if they were telling me, "It's okay, God has got your back through all times - especially in these times." This contemplation or "maschil" of David seems especially relevant while we're all stuck in our houses in times of extreme worry because of the Corona Virus pandemic. This seems to be a great reading to calm our nerves and just know everything will be better.
  • Annysia on 1 Chronicles 3
    It's fascinating to see how David's bloodline reaches because of the power and lands he held during his time as a king. I didn't know that he ruled different lands at different times. What confuses me is he was regarded as being beloved by God but at the same time, teachings during that time say that polygamy was seen as wrong. Someone beloved by God should be abiding his teachings, right? I may be wrong with my timeline on when polygamy was regarded as immoral, though.
  • Annysia on Hosea 9
    This seems to be an easy to interpret chapter. Hosea tells Israel that they have looked away from God and thus He is punishing them for it by taking the land He gave them away from the Israelites.

    This seems to be an example of how important it is to be grateful for what is given to us because once we take it for granted we'll realize how important it was to us in the first placeo.
  • Job - in Reply on Malachi 4
    Julie, Julia: I don't have a pair of pink glasses and I don't listen to voice from radio or recordings made by man. But I do have a KJ Bible and this is what I read and go by.
  • Alta waller - in Reply on Deuteronomy 22
    It is the new testament we are supposed to listen to excluding how were supposed to be baptised what god says we do if he says that females must wear skirts or dresses we are to be obedient for jesus has said disobedience is worse than witch craft the fact that adam and eve disobeyed jesus he had to shed the blood of an innocent animal which is why they used to sacrificies until the spotless lamb jesus christ sacrificed him self on calvery day what you are doing is misleading gods sheep and in the bible it says those like pastors that mislead his sheep shall deeper darkness and punishment than those that never knew his name.
  • Job - in Reply on Malachi 1
    OK, May God bless you mightily.
  • Abel - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Did not God himself commit and approve of many genocides? God killed everyone on Earth except for Noah's family in the Great Flood; God killed every inhabitant of Sodom and Gomorrah by raining hellfire down on them; God ordered the death of the Philistines by the Israelites when the Israelites marched outside their wall. God even guaranteed the deaths of Adam, Eve, and all of their descendants by explicitly denying them the ability to eat from the tree of life (simply because God did not want them to "live forever"). Did not God create death, as he created all things?
  • Abel - in Reply on Genesis 4
    I interpret this passage as meaning that Cain had brought a subpar offering to God, and that Abel had brought a good offering -- the nature of the offering (fruit vs. meat) was not necessarily important. Maybe Cain brought spoiled or weak fruits, implying that Cain was lazy and uncaring, while Abel brought well-fed animals for slaughter, implying that Abel was hardworking.
  • Abel on Genesis 4
    If God created humans in Adam and Eve, and Adam and Eve only had two children (Abel and Cain), then who is Cain afraid will slay him after he slays Abel? Who does Cain take as his wife from the land of Nod? Who lived in the land of Nod, if not humans created by God?
  • Abel - in Reply on Genesis 4
    The book of the Bible that talks about the end of times is Revelations, the final book in the New Testament. There are many, many signs of the end of times, but in the vision revealed to John (from which Revelations is written), there will be "seven seals" each of which, when unsealed, bring about a new stage of the apocalypse. The first four seals release the "Four Horsemen," which are (in order): Conquest (the White Horse), War (the Red Horse), Famine (the Black Horse), and Death (the Pale Horse). The interpretation of each horsemen is up to debate, though (for instance the rider of the White Horse could be Jesus OR the Antichrist, or something else entirely, it's unclear).
  • Abel on Genesis 3
    So, if God intended for us to live without clothes to cover our bodies, and only through humanity's first sin (eating the apple) do we clothe ourselves, then why are Christians today so against being unclothed? Is not the unclothed body the ultimate expression of God, since we were made in his image?
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on Hebrews 4
    The most important is that the holy spirit is moving in these words. The gospel is the word of God, and is not of anyone's private interpretation. Holy men where moved by the spirit. The same spirit that moved on Mary, the same spirit that moved the prophets of old, the same spirit that was on the face of the deep in creation. The holy spirit is a person in the trinity, Christ calls Him the comforter, that was given to those who are baptized into Christ
    death and resurrection. This is called redemption of mankind, reconciliation in our creator. Thanks be to Christ our savior. Glory to God in the Highest.
  • Abel - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    If God is all knowing without fault, he must know all of our actions, from past to future. If he knows all of our future actions, then are our actions not already decided?
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on Hebrews 4
    Love Christ ,hear his words. HIS WORDS and his disciples,not mans, only those moved by the holy spirit. Christ came to save us from sin and death. Our Father was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself. Rejoice in this, knowing He has redeemed us through His only begotton Son. Our salvation is complete in HIM.
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on Hebrews 4
    through patience in well doing. Trusting His words, and studing to show thyself approved. The guidance of the Holy Spirit will move you and direct you. Be careful for nothing, while always remembering that the evil one will always be watching, sometimes in the littlest things our flesh will always war against our spirit. Most importantly is persistent prayer! Bible says without ceasing, in all thy ways acknowledge Him. God Bless you on your journey
  • Adam on Genesis 3
    One of satan's greatest tricks is to convince others he doesn't exist and that he doesn't deceive people into choosing sin. 'No one will ever find out', 'if I don't do it, someone else will', 'what happens here, stays here', 'it won't hurt anybody', or 'they deserve it'. These types rationalizations are used to commit sin from stealing a penny to committing mass murder. Satan deceived from the beginning and still does today.
  • Desiree Wright on 2 Chronicles 7
    "O Lord, My God, Help me to continually humble myself, pray, seek your face, and turn from my wicked ways, so that you Lord God will hear from heaven, forgive my sin and heal our land". Amen.
  • Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived.
  • Seems to document a lot of history of wars and events of that time.
  • Wonder if this the same or different Judas that betrayed Jesus?
  • Adam on 2 Esdras 10:23
    Wonder what the seal of Sion is?
  • Adam on 2 Esdras 9:23
    Wonder what the symbolism of the 7 days means here- cease 7 days, but no fasting?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 4
    John Chapter 19

    25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

    26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

    27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home .
    Do you not get that figures of speech are not satanic changes in the Bible.
    Jesus knew Mary was NOT the mother of John and yet he said Behold thy Mother
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 4
    Timothy was Paul's SON in the faith. Mark Chapter 3: 32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
    33 And he (Jesus) answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
    34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
    35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
  • STEVEN GOODWIN - in Reply on Psalms 91:10
    Cindy you are right! Jesus is Love....
  • Gilda Buenaluz - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Amen, A great encouragement on such a time like these. Thank you.
