  • Sheila Hyatt on 2 Thessalonians 1:8
    In 1 Thess 1:8 what does it mean to "obey the Gospel..."?
  • Alex on Jeremiah 1
    comments on Isaiah 9 v 6 He calls CHRIST EVERLASTING FATHER. Jesus said that satan was the FATHER OF THE TARES B/C is the one who sows the tares Thus Christ is the FATHER of the Wheat simply b/c he is the one who SOWS the WHEAT IN MANS HEARTS .The father that sends the H.G is actually Christ .The WHEAT ARE GODS,THE GRANSONS the israel of God. SIMPLY B/C JESUS IS THE ONE WHO SOWS THAT PRECIOUS SEED IN OUR HEARTS. Jesus said the FATHER wd send the H.G IN MY NAME, IN MY NAME MEANS HE IS THE ONE WHO SOWS THAT SEED.Remember Jesus said that the father was in him meaning in his seed. Just like father Abraham was in issac simply b/c Abraham was in issac's seed a prosterity. Of Father son and Granson the Godhead that became the nation of Israel but also a picture of the heavenly trinity, the the Israel of God.EVERY CREATURE THAT GOD MADE WAS TOLD TO GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY. And that was the PROMISE that God made to Christ thru Abraham's heavenly seed CHRIST JESUS. tHE point i am trying to make IS the H.G. came out of Christ seed, which was his WORD HIS BREATH,When HE BREATHE on them they received the H.G. HE WAS REPRODUCING GOD WITH HIS SEED, now do you see the Gransons.?That was the great Promise i will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven. Now do you see the Israel of God?Jesus is not without a seed,There are heavenly children coming soon.Thats u Elijah has to come and turn the hearts of the fathers to the CHILDREN B/F THAT GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD.Remember God swore by himself when he made that PROMISE about multiplication,thats y Jesus is saying to whom the WORD CAME THAT GOOD SEED it made them Gods ( the gransons ) see father son and granson followed by an israel of GOD.Jesus refers to the H.G as the promise Child meaning his offspring. The children of Promise ouir new innerman, our new hhart and new spirit. k later GBU

  • Anthony Gyasi Nketiah on Matthew 24:9
    He would have lost his life.He chose to fall into the hands of the lord for he knew that the lord is merciful and will temper justice with mercy.As it is written somewhere that let us find Grace to help in time of Mercy.
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 4:4
    Warren, I think if we look at Luke 12:49 in context to the chapter & also Matthew chapter 10 (as an addendum to Luke's account), we'll see that this is not a literal fire that Jesus speaks of, but a fire of divisions & contentions. In fact, in verse 51, He says, "Do you think I've come to bring peace on Earth? No, but to bring divisions". We might find this teaching troubling as we often think of the Gospel of Christ as that which brings peace to our once troubled & sinful souls & a new peace & relationship with the Godhead.

    Yet, the other side of the faith in Christ's Gospel, is that of contentions & divisions. The Gospel is divisive: it separates the sheep from the goats, friends & family members are set apart because of its call for separation & holiness, it separates those who attend Church for conscience sake from those attending to worship the Lord Whom they love, it makes distinction between those who take up their cross daily from those who are careless in their fleshly walk, etc.

    And Jesus says: "and what will I, if it be already kindled?", or "what can I say, that the spark of fire has already commenced?" The very fact of Jesus' Presence, amongst the people & his disciples, had already started the fires of anger & separation from one another. First, it commenced in the people's hearts as they heard teachings that were foreign to them & the Spirit-filled messages brought serious questioning & conviction within. Even arriving at the foot of the Cross, the division of those who followed the Lord from those who rejected Him became clearer & more distinct, resulting in more hatred from the Jews & Romans. Post Cross, we see the effects of that 'fire' as the apostles & those who obeyed the Lord suffered greatly, not because of anything they had done, but from those who had rejected Christ & godly living, were marked for destruction. You can keep these thoughts in mind as you read through the NT, looking for evidences of this fire that 'to follow Christ' brings.
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 9:14
    The whole of chapter 9 in Proverbs is to show a comparison between Wisdom & Folly (= foolishness). As you must have read the earlier verses (1 - 12), you saw the traits of one who uses wisdom. Now both Wisdom & Folly are used here in the feminine gender but not to denigrate the female in any way, but in Hebrew, as in many other languages, those words are in the feminine gender. So, Foolishness is seen as Wisdom's opposite & verses 13 -18 demonstrate that.

    The imagery of Foolishness is shown as 'a foolish woman'. Clearly, this woman is personified as a harlot as you can see from the following verses in this chapter. Foolishness is the display of simpleness & ignorance (v13); she sits in a prominent position to call out to the simple men to come into her chambers (v14); both the wise & simple men walk by her, but the simple ones turn in because they are attracted by her alluring calls (v15,16); she convinces them that there can be more pleasure from doing wrong or doing things in secret when no one is looking (v17). But Wisdom's final word (v18) is: "But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell": i.e. the simple can't see 'past their noses' (or, see past their heightened sinful desires) to take into account that that "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23) & all those who give in to her (foolishness), will join the throng of sinners who succumbed to the wiles of the devil.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Samuel 18:10
    In this chapter, we see David's beloved friend, Jonathan, & himself communing after David's encounter with Goliath. You remember that David could not use Saul's armour against Goliath, preferring rather his sling shot with which he was very skilled. So when he & Jonathan met up later, Jonathan offered his royal clothing & armoury to David as he was accepted by King Saul to head up the armies of Israel & needed something more warlike looking when appearing before the King.

    So, at this time these pieces of armoury were worn by David for decoration & dignity of his position rather than for use in war. So Jonathan gave him his bow (longbow rather than a crossbow, also 2 Sam 1:22) & his girdle. This was a heavy metal plated belt that served two purposes: to hold the scabbard for his sword & sometimes extended lower to cover & protect the pelvic area. Soldiers also wore a breastplate, which was like the material of the belt but used to protect the abdomen.
  • TammieSogolon Sakidi on Hebrews 10
    "Thank you, Jesus!!!"
  • Bob Hilt on Psalms 1:6
    Someone sent this to me. I have loosely titled: Tolerance of evil.

    "Our great and mighty God, who created all things; even evil

    I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. (Isaiah 45:7)

    Has pulled the plug on this evil world. He ALLOWED all this to happen....ok if you don't want Me in your nation and you allow your enemies to invade your land with their idols and their sorceries and witchcraft and gods of wood and gods of stone who neither see nor hear....you want to pass your children through the fire of abortion and have your men marry men and your women marry women....

    And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Revelation 18:2)

    ....and I will send a famine, not just of food but also of the Word.....no more will the voice of the Bride be heard or the voice of the Bridegroom......you want to kick me out of your nation.....welcome to your New Boss

    Judgment begins at the house of the Lord then the cup of His indignation is poured out on everyone else, who have taken the mark and who blaspheme the Most High. Woe unto them"
  • TammieSogolon Sakidi on James 1
    There is much wisdom in this chapter concerning the character of the believer. It expresses the role the believer plays in the model of society and explains the reason to continue in the purpose discovered in each man. It is important to read the word of God to understand what is expected of us. Represent Jesus as best as we can. Include the Lord in all we do.

  • Jenny - in Reply on John 14
    Thank you for that.
  • TammieSogolon Sakidi on Ecclesiastes 3
    It's like I always say" Life is too short to waste time, energy or thought" on things that don't please God. The only way we can know Him is through His word. I love the King James version of the Holy bible and it is what I use. This chapter expresses our need to be true to the calling on our lives. I found out what God called me to do. Each day I grow stronger so when the time comes I will be ready, willing, and able to accomplish what thus saith the Lord. I hope everyone will seek and find their gift and talent from Almighty God: in Jesus' name, Amen.
  • TammieSogolon Sakidi on Proverbs 20
    I gathered great wisdom from this chapter. It explains the responsibility of our leaders. It is clearly establishing that the Lord finds their role in our lives important. This is why, I pray, for my leaders Mayor Perkins, Governor Edwards, Senator Kennedy, President Trump and all those in between. Be blessed in Jesus' name, Amen.
  • Sj on Genesis 4
    I love my enemies and will pray for them.
  • Sj on Genesis 1:9
    Without Jesus we're nothing.
  • Alphonso Keith on 2 Chronicles 33
    How great and merciful is our God . His grace we do not deserve ,but how thankful we should be that He offers it ! Our country is in dire need .( 2 Chronicles 7:14 )
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Thank you Robert, that was very helpful also. Re: the coming Anti-Christ. One could argue to the actual commencement of the Great Tribulation that is to come upon the whole world (Matthew 24). One thought is that it commences at the revelation of Anti-Christ (2 Thes 2:3 ff); another, that it's only after he begins his onslaught of terror upon those who refuse him & his Mark; and yet another, at the pouring out of God's Wrath upon the Earth (Revelation 6 ff). So, I suppose the inclination to one of these positions primarily determines where one stands in his belief to the timing of the Rapture of the Church. And then of course, the much debated matter whether the Church experiences any or all of the above, with all the Scriptures given to support those views, comes into play. Whichever understanding, the importance of our readiness & longing for His Return is paramount.
  • Mishael in Luke - in Reply on Matthew 12:2
    It was the Pharisees trying to catch Jesus in some kind of sin. Jesus used the situation to show the Pharisees (people who hit others on the head with rules), that they were unmerciful.

    23

    And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.

    24

    And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day, that which is not lawful?

    25

    And Jesus said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

    26

    How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

    27

    And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

    28

    Therefore the Son of man IS LORD also of the sabbath.
  • Upali Ratnayake on Psalms 91
    God promises great blessings in this psalm.But for whom are these blessings?

    They are only for those who live in the secret place of the most High and sadly for no other.The Spirit explains who shall live in the heavenly abode.Please read Psalms 15.
  • TammieSogolon Sakidi on Psalms 78
    After re-reading Psalms 78 I get the message that: God can supply all my needs. I also find value in serving the Lord God Almighty because he loves me. I don't feel sorry for those who refuse to obey or deny God and Psalms 78 identifies why Christians should desire for people to be saved but release them when they chose to say "no".
