  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Exodus 26
    Good day brother John,

    To say Jesus Christ "did not know all things" I cannot say that. I believe our Lord Jesus Christ is one with God. Can I explain everything, no.

    Weather we have some differences on how we perceive certain things in Scripture is normal. No one knows everything except God. Like I stated in another post. As long as what we take from Scripture is in line with the Will of God then it's good. As the Word of God is living, very deep, and sharper than any two edge sword. Hebrews 4:12.

    The important thing is we are both with Christ, of His body, and He is our Lord. Staying faithful and true, with a pure heart, to our Lord Jesus Christ to the glory of God our Father is key. Living for His Will.

    As you noted in another post that John was taken up to heaven for the visions in Revelation. I believe Jesus Christ is there with God now. In Revelation 5:3-5 it speaks about "a man being worthy to open the seals" then speaks of the Lion of the tribe of Juda and Root of David being worthy to open the book and loose the seven seals. I see Jesus Christ opening the book just as it says. If you perceive it differently that's ok.

    To believe in the three in ONE view is simply put by this: when we are Blessed to be converted, called or chosen, to be born of the Spirit from above, the Spirit of God the Father, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost all dwell in us. In one Spirit. This is truth and in Scripture.

    Let us retain God in our thinking, trust Him, and He will direct our paths. Proverbs 3:5-6.

    Have a wonderful day. God Bless.

    Psalms 102:18 This shall be written for the GENERATION (so far 2000 years) to come: and the people which shall be CREATED shall praise the Lord.

    Verse 3 shows what great faith in Jehovah God that this little girl had. No matter what age a person is they can start to develop faith in God.
  • S Spencer on salvation - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Part 4. WHY THE LAW.

    We often like to look at salvation as our sins forgiven, and rightfully so. But it may be better understood and appreciated if we look at it as our sins being payed for by the shed blood on the cross. "The sacrificial lamb" life for life!


    Galatians 3:19-29. Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

    Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

    Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.

    But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

    But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

    Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

    But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

    For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

    For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

    There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

    And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    Now how do live our life?

    ROM 6.

    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?

    Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

    Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
  • Sally on Genesis 6:4
    Genesis 6:4

    "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."

    mystery to me.

    my theory is they were human and they had never sinned and they didn't live in the garden and they were created when adam was created. But eve was the only one created from adam's rib. we all come from adam and Eve.
  • Sally on Genesis 5:29
    Genesis 5:29

    "And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed."

    it was easy to grow from the ground before it was cursed.

    being justified by faith that is a gift that we didn't labour for.
  • BSP on Ezra 1
    Verse 1 shows that Jehovah God can use any ruler or human that he sees fit to fulfill his purpose.
  • S Spencer on salvation - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Part 3.

    Note: This discussion is open for improvement as I am no scholar.

    Just because one is dogmatic about a view, it does not make him right.

    Just rightly trying to divide the word.

    Mathew 5:13-18.

    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

    For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    Part of the law was the ceremonial law and Jesus was the sacrifice for the sins of the world,

    But he had to keep the law to be declared that perfect lamb that take away the sins of the world.

    Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: Gal. 3:13.

    By this he was able to make over to us "his righteousness".

    Colossians 2:13-19.

    And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

    Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

    ""( And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.)""

    So why the law?

    see part 4.
  • Tod Lambert on Genesis 1:1
    It seems that Romans 13:1-2 were used as a justification for slavery or tyranny. Was this justification correct or is it contradicted by other verses in the bible.
  • Marie on 1 John 3
    In verse 8, it states that the devil sinneth from the beginning. So does that mean that God created the devil to Sin? And it also states that the Son of God was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil, so the key word is "MIGHT", so need clarification on this verse.
  • Sally on Genesis 3:6
    Genesis 3:6

    "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."

    Don't eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    God's word is wisdom.

    first Timothy 6:6

    But godliness with contentment is great gain

    Satsn is a beguiler
  • BSP on Jude 1
    The first few verses provide a warning example. Past examples were given and it was up to each individual Christian of what course he or she would take.
  • Rawlie - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Good day Jessie.

    Thanks so much for the information you sent me, it is very useful and I will surely use it in my study of the book of Daniel.

    I know that you indicated that you have a map/chart is there any way you can forward it to me to look at?. It would be greatly appreciated.

  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Brother Carl, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    You said God made the Israelites wait 40 years (generation)....

    God made them wait 40 years (judgement)....

    Numbers 14:34 After the number of days in which you searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall you bear your INIQUITIES, even forty years, and you shall know my breach of promise.

    God bless
  • Efazzi - in Reply on Exodus 15
    The Sabbath was made for "MAN" .. Quit trying to put your religious bent into that. Just rest one day a week. Some people work on a Sat or Sunday. Is it good to do good on a Sabbath. Jesus answered that !

    People were instructed to let portions of there land rest on the 7th year. You have to ask yourself why ???? Thus the Sabbath is for us. To rest, to replenish. Etc.
  • Victor Ofinam-Antwi on Psalms 29
    What was if like before God separated the light from the darkness? Looks like there was light and darkness at the same time.
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Your comment sounds like an attack on Christians who believe the Bible. Why do you post such a thing on a Bible website and what is your goal? To unite or divide?

    Christians believe Jesus is God because the Bible clearly says He's God. Is that reason enough? John 1:1 flat out says it. So, so all the scriptures below that even children read and understand. It needs no creative interpreting, needs no progressive pastor to interpret, just literally what it says. Jesus being God doesn't mean He's God the Father, but God the Son. God became a man and died for you, do you believe Him?

    Claiming that Christians who read the scriptures and believe are somehow just 'Americans' or 'Catholics' seems like a disingenuous attack on Christians. Labeling and dividing and lying is what I've seen done to make such anti-Christ arguments. Anyone who does this is on extremely dangerous ground. Anyone who tries to spread anti-Christ lies should be ashamed of themselves.

    1 John 2:22-24

    "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father."

    Imagine what great courage it took for Moses and Aaron to appear before Pharaoh and deliver God's message. Jehovah God can give us the courage we need to accomplish his purpose.
  • Philip Christian Parks on 2 Peter 3
    2Pet. 3:3; scoffers = Psalm 1:1 implies sinners progress in their ever-increasing depravity until they become scoffers in their final state.

    Scoffers scornfully and maliciously mock GOD, HIS SON The LORD JESUS CHRIST, GOD's Word, GOD's people, and all GODly matters to bring disgrace and contempt. These have evolved in their lifestyles for so long, they no longer fear GOD.

    Because JESUS CHRIST has not yet returned as promised, scoffers believe HE will not come again at all. The very existence of scoffers proves these are "the last days" (Jude v.18).

    The reader could argue that these scoffers compose a more blatant and aggressive group than the more private "false teachers who privily shall bring in damnable heresies" ( 2Pet. 2:1). As followers and adherents of false teachers, these scoffers voice their ridicule more publicly.

    These less than subtle scoffers are "walking after their own lusts" partly because they swallow the "cunningly devised fables" (1:16) and the "damnable heresies" (2:1) of the false teachers (2:1) and have become the "twofold more the child of hell" described by CHRIST ( Mt. 23:15). See also John 8:44, Acts 13:10, and 17:5.

    Scoffers deride those who believe Scriptural prophecies regarding CHRIST's Second Coming by declaring that since CHRIST has not yet returned, that is proof HE will not return (v.4).

    Their derisive question regarding "the promise" (v.4) voices their mockery of CHRIST WHO promised a Second Coming that HE cannot fulfill. Not only do scoffers mock the prophecies of the prophets, but they also mock CHRIST HIMSELF WHO prophesied of HIS own Second Coming ( Jn. 14:2, 28). Scoffers' denial of CHRIST's Second Coming will not hinder HIS Coming for "The LORD is not slack concerning HIS Promise" (v.9). See also verse ten where Peter emphasized, "But the Day of The LORD will come."

    In the end, GOD will mock and laugh at the scoffers ( Ps. 2:4; 37:13; 59:8; Pro. 1:25-26).

    Verse 19 shows that Jehovah God took the initiative in showing love to us and in return we learn how to love.
  • BSP on 1 John 3
    In imitation of Christ Jesus we must develop deep love for our brothers and sisters. When we develop the deep love that Jesus had, we will be willing to die for our brothers and sisters.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Sister Martha, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Israel in the Old Testament was dispersed among all the nation of the world. Judea was left so Jesus lineage could be confirmed to be the natural seed of David. Today none can trace their lineage back to Abraham. ISRAEL today (those born again of the Spirit of God) is the promised SEED of Isaac (his name was changed to Israel) (CHRIST IN US).

    Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one INWARDLY (Christ in you); and circumcision is of the HEART, in the Spirit, and not in the letter (flesh) .....

    Romans 9:6 ...for they are not all Israel, which are of Israel.

    The kingdom promised to ISRAEL (CHRIST) is not a literal kingdom that can be seen with eyes; but a kingdom of priest (Christ in you). These battles prophesied in scripture are not literal but in the Spirit.

    Jesus said before he comes there would be literal wars, literal earthquakes, literal famines and literal pestilence. This has been happening for 2000 years and Jesus has been COMING to those who look for him 2000 years. Jesus said that it would be like the days of Noah. They knew not till the doors on the ark were CLOSED. The ark could have saved them; Jesus is our ark. Man is looking for all things to be literal and all of a sudden DESTRUCTION (you die; the grave is your reward, the doors to the ark are closed). Most will miss Christ coming; because they are looking for something literal, when the BATTLE and BIRTH are SPIRIT. There will continue literal wars, literal earthquakes, literal famines and literal pestilence until the age we are in ENDS and the next age BEGINS.

    Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was ONCE (Christ ministered in the flesh) offered to bear the sins of many; and unto those WHO LOOK FOR HIM he shall appear the SECOND TIME (IN THE SPIRIT) without sin UNTO SALVATION.

    I come like a thief in the night; if you would have seen the thief, he would not have DESTROYED you house.

    Without looking it up, what was Jesus' last miracle?
  • Eliana on Ezekiel 3
    This translation of Ezekiel 3 is not translated totally correctly nor clearly. It is a very clear text by Artscroll.

    Ezekiel chapter 3, verse 21 by Artscroll Stone edition Tanach: But you, if you did warn him, the righteous man, that the righteous man SHOULD not sin and he DID NOT sin; he will surely live because HE WAS CAREFUL. And as for you, YOU WILL HAVE SAVED YOUR SOUL.

    Basically your past good deeds will not be remembered if you start to act corruptly and die because of it. If you turn away and stop sinning, you will save yourself. The righteous man does not sin. It will take a long time to learn not to sin any longer, but it is possible and has been done by many.

    A person, who often sins is corrupted and not a righteous man. It is terrible if you murder somebody daily basis! You should stop murdering completely and murder no longer! Seriously! That was an example from a sin and I can not call a man righteous who keeps murdering people even though as rarely as once every year. I expect a righteous man not to murder a single person ever again!!!

    Of course it is hard to learn to sin no more and to stay righteous especially if you are not careful and if your upbringing was all wrong and nobody is supporting you and forcing you to sin with them like what happens in so many religious communities. It takes time to learn the righteous ways. And because so few believe in righteous life, so few even try to learn it let alone be careful not to sin any longer, but it is not impossible. Remember Enoch. At least I have faith and believe that one day I will learn to live fully righteously. It is a command to live righteously and to stop daily and constant sinning.

    English is not my language so I do not fully grasp it yet. Sorry for mistakes in the text.

    Have a great day :)!

  • Deshawn Tompson Sr - in Reply on 1 John 5
    Hello Ronald,

    That scripture is accurate......or is it?

    When you go through all the particular subject matter, you will find blistering contradictions that are enough to make you shake your head. What is the meaning of this perpetual catch 22? In my humble opinion, such mistakes cheapens the Word of God. I shouldn't have to bend over backwards to defend an obvious editing error; it makes me look foolish.

    Bless you
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2:11
    How to remember scripture? I am a former drug addict and find reading and comprehension not compatible in the real sense. I think I am not learning as I I should?

    I wonder is this how the Holy Spirit works? Is this how the spirit breaks down the fleshly way of thinking?

    The real stories in the bible I learned as a child, but still must be reminded of them even now! If we do not read the word, there would be no refreshing of the knowledge of the truth!

    Strength and perseverance, come from Hearing the word! U may memorize it all u want, If it does not abide in your heart, it will be as the flower that dies and fades away! Knowing Jesus is the heart of the matter, gaining insight of who He is, and His love for man , is what you should memorize!

    Remember This! He hung on a cross for the world!
