Bible Discussion PAGE 3

  • Borand on Matthew 27
    Hi to everyone

    I am new Christian, started to read Bible around one year ago, attended some Bible lessons and discussions and pray daily. Sometimes it is harder than other times, sometimes I get absent mind but on other occasions I manage to put myself fully into prayer. My issue is that I don't fell Holy Spirit or when I ask God for guidance or advice I fell only silence. Can someone give me some guidance or perhaps tell me more from personal experience please?

    All 66 books of the Bible are in the King James Version old and new testament with nothing added and nothing removed. And to my knowledge the only Bible without copy rights so it can be shared freely.
  • Mishael - in Reply on John 14:21
    Most Walmart's have KJV Bibles back in the book section. They have New KJV too.

    Compare John chapter 3 to see which one you like best. Hard bound Bibles don't lay flat; so see how that works for you.

    I like publisher Thomas Nelson the most.

    Priced very reasonable.

    Just talk to an attorney. You don't want him to take you to court to pay your part of rent or file on you for abandonment of financial stuff like credit card balances. See if you have Legal Aid in your town? Be smart. Don't date till it's all over legally.

    FRIENDSHIP WITH THE WORLD AND EVANGELIZATION

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Revelation 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God (James 4:4).

    The believers are not of this world. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith (1 John 5:4).

    Additional readings as confirmation.

    John 7:7; 8:23; 15:19; 17:9,14,16; 18:36.

    Romans 12:2.

    1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:19. 2 Corinthians 6:17.

    Galatians 1:4.

    Ephesians 2:2.

    1 John 2:15; 4:5; 5:4.

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and the scriptural references we use serve as confirmation that it is not us that speak, but the Spirit of our Father that speaketh in us (2 Samuel 23:2; Matthew 10:20; Acts 4:8; 6:10).

    The believers and followers of the true Christ do not involve themselves in the affairs of this world.

    God cannot be received by this present world and so-called world evangelization (global unity) is a deception at the highest level and the workings of the spirit of this world (John 1:5,10; 8:23; 14:17,22; 15:19,20; 17:9,14,16,25; 18:36; Romans 8:7; 1Cor. 1:20; 2:4-8, 12-14; 1 Thessalonians 3:3; 2 Tim. 3:12; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15; 3:1; 5:4,19; 2 John 7).

    CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES

    In order to put the California wildfires into a 'spiritual' context we invite you to visit the 'Current Events' page of our website. There are several entries that will explain the cause of God's wrath and why people's prayers are all in vain (Matthew 15:9). The 'Current Events' page is a collection of thoughts and discussions on today's 'Current Events' and how our website helps to explain and examine them and put them into a 'spiritual' context.

    As a direct result of religious and made-made doctrines and commandments (Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:7; Colossians 2:22), history has proven that mankind does not follow the first three commandments (Exodus 20:3-7), bur rather 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). History has also proven that this whole world has been deceived as confirmed by the Word of God in Revelation 12:9, and history has also proven that 'Religion' is a deception that Satan is using to transform himself into an angel of light and an apostle of Christ (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    You can learn more about our Ministry in Christ by Googling our 'Names' or the article "False Apostles and False Christs' or 'A World Deceived'. There is also a 'Contact' page for further communication. We invite you to review the 'Letter of Introduction' posted on the 'Introduction' page of the website. It highlights some of our work. Please note that our website was visited last year by people from over 160 countries. There are a total of 193 countries throughout the world plus the Vatican and Palestine that are listed as observer states.

  • Millie - in Reply on Acts 17:6
    Ahh, this verse coorelates with every verse in that chapter. You see, this was Gideon's army, which was very small. However, they had the 3 camps, round about, so, whdn they all blowed their trumpets, lit their lamps, etc, this made Gideon's army seem yo be much larger than the enemy anticipated. The enemy became scared and fled.

    Hope this helps.

    Born of God - Born Again

    Most people on this website claim to be so-called Christians, but in truth are they followers of Jesus Christ or do they follow 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)?. Most of them also claim to be so-called 'Born Again', which means 'Born of God', but are they, or is it a form of self-transformation (2 Corinthians 11:13-15), while in truth they are wearing the wrong garment (Psalms 6:8; Matthew 7:20-23; 9:16; 22:2-14; Mark 2:21; Luke 5:36)?

    For answers to the above questions we invite you to peruse the earlier Comment below.

  • Andy G van den Berg on Mark 2
    On Mark 2:21

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    God is the judge over His Church and teaches us that you must be 'Born Again'. No believer and follower of the true Christ has ever made a claim that they are 'Born Again'. That is judging oneself and falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; Revelation 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. 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 (John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know 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). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it.
  • Sharisse Torres - in Reply on Deuteronomy 24:1
    I understand what you said but it is the husband that has been cheating and once the wife found out he was very upset She found out and said for her to leave For snooping into his things and paid to get her stuff out that night.

    does that not technically be considered him divorcing her and does not want her in the house if he kicks her out. Then he files divorce on the courts next week

    So if she talks to another man in between time then is she in the wrong?
  • Jeremiah Embs - in Reply on Mark 3
    Bible doesn't say "don't paint eyes," but it is vain meaning it is not important. What is important is the spirit and good works. So you can paint your eyes if you want, but it is better to show people God in your life. Modesty is important.

    Jeremiah 4:30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.

    Proverbs 31:30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

    First Timothy 2:9-10 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 24:1
    This was the Lord's directive concerning a lawful divorce. In the event that a man finds 'uncleanness' in his (new) wife, then he is permitted to give her a letter of divorce absolving the marriage. The word 'uncleanness' is from the Hebrew, 'erwat', which allows for past lewdness, present indecency or shameful exposure. Such a character history can be grounds for divorce & she is therefore forced to leave the house. No alimony involved here - she's out on her own & probably has to endure family rejection as well.

    So, she runs into the arms of another man & guess what? He finds out that she has been less than honourable, so he boots her out as well. Verse 4 then says that the first husband is not permitted to take her back again because she has been defiled by the second. For some unknown reason the first husband might want her back - they never learn. No waiting period is seen here - she just has to flit around until someone doesn't pick up on her past history.
  • Jeremiah Embs - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Jesus went through Samaria himself and preached to the Gentiles himself so they could be saved. John chapter 4, Isaiah 42, Isaiah 49, Isaiah 60:3, Luke 2:32, Acts 26:23.
  • Jeremiah Embs - in Reply on Genesis 8:13
    Noah went in the ark when 600 years old. Stayed in ark about 1 year. 601 is Noah's age. Genesis 5:32, 7:6, 7:12, 7:17, 7:24, 8:3,4,5,6,10,13
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 8:13
    Dinah, the 601 years in Genesis 8:13 refers to Noah's age when the flood finally was absorbed into the Earth & Noah removed the Ark's covering to observe this.

    If you follow the time line of Noah from chapter 5 verse 32, we see that Noah was 500 yrs old when his sons Shem, Ham & Japheth were born to him (probably over a period of a few years from 500). Then it took Noah & his crew almost 100 years to build the Ark (Genesis 7:6, Noah was 600 yrs old when the flood started). It rained continuously & heavily for just over a month & the flood lasted for 5 months (7:24) at which time the waters depleted over the next 3 months. So after all this time, including sending out the raven & dove to test for dry land (another month of waiting before sending these birds out), another year had passed, which made Noah 601 yrs old (8:13).

  • Freddieo on Mark 2
    How do I know that Christ has received me into his kingdom? Has their been some kind of miracle in my life to prove it? Should I experience a miracle or perhaps maybe, I have already experienced a miracle, and not aware of it. Scripture clearly says that Jesus cast out devils and healed the sick! Jesus also said an evil and adulterous people seeks after a sign and no sign shall be given? Not unlike me, the first miracle you shall receive is the miracle that happens the minute you hear and receive Christ words! When we except Christ, truly we are born again! A new life that begins, we hear differently, we see differently, our lives begin in a different direction. The miracle is the LOVE we find in God the Father given to us through Jesus Christ! This is the miracle! The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit." Being born again is truly a miracle that is from above!
  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on James 1:3
    It is faith plus the test plus patience that complete the process of coming to holiness, because that is what the trial is designed to do. The trial of our faith is to bring us to holiness, but if we lack patience, the process is going to be short circuited.
  • Lynn C Friend - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Hello Jackie,

    The word "world" must be understood properly. God created ALL that is a part of the "world" in which one lives. The lamb in Genesis was simply to clothe A&E physically (their flesh) in place of the garments they had made that were not as durable.

    I agree that event was symbolic of God's future plan, however that "world" of the flesh comes to an end for all those that understand the foundation that was laid at the cross for the "world" of the Spirit for ALL that were/are freed from sin.

    In other words, one "world" is the old "world" of sin, and the other is the new "world" for those that know and understand their freedom from sin.

    The first "world" is the "world" one lives in according to the flesh. The new "world" is the "world" one lives when being led of the Spirit.

    The new "world" began the moment Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead, meaning Jesus was the foundation of the beginning of new "world".

    Have a great day, Joy to You, Lynn
  • Art BM on 1 Corinthians 1:10
    When a single verse, Paul telling us not to divide into opposing groups following different leaders. "A group of people forming a distinct unit within a larger group by virtue of certain refinements or distinctions of belief or practice" Gets so many different interpretations, being filtered through our own beliefs and prejudices, how is this even possible.

    "Estimates that there are currently 47,000 denominations." all reading the same bible. I try to keep it simple for my own sanity. As Paul said, "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified." that is not up for debate in the true church ( assembly) For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

  • Alex on Genesis 32:8
    Comments by Alex about Jesus telling Nic. he had to be bornagain by water and spirit which are the same,The water Jesus is refering to is his WORD as Peter said being bornagain of an incorruptible Seed even by the Word of God, that liveth and abideth for ever. LIVING WATER. As John said when Jesus spoke of the water he was refering to the spirit for the H.G WAS NOT YET GIVEN b/c Jesus was not yet glorified so the water JESUS was speaking of was the H.G.LIVING WATER. Even Paul said the CHURCH had to be washed by the WATER of the WORD. When Jesus used the word water it was Spirit the H.G. ( HIS WORD ) Jesus was not refering to H20 .Jesus was simply impling we must be bornagain by a seed even by the WORD of God. Even in the natural a birth has to be initiated by an intimacy and a seed has to be sown but now that GOOD SEED is sown in our hearts initiating a birth of Christ in US. WHEN Jesus said ye must be bornagain by the water and the spirit thats only 1 baptism of the H.G. THAT LIVING WATER OF HIS WORD. When Jesus said if any man thirst let him come unto me and drink, John said he was refering to the SPIRIT not h20. Faith comes by hearing his WORD which initiates a birth,thats y the bible says that FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,In the natural a woman has the substance of things hoped the evidence of things not seen when she is expecting . But our new birth is in the spirit as that which is born of the spirit is SPIRIT. And only JESUS CAN SOW THAT GOOD SEED IN OUR HEARTS AMEN GBU
  • Servant on John 3:5
    Only after the Ethiopian was saved by faith in Jesusu Christ in verse 37 was he allowed to be baptized. Salvation is saved by Grace through faith in what Jesus did by shedding His perfect, holy blood on the cross for the sins of mankind. People in the Old Testament were saved the same way the only difference is that they believed God would send a Savior. We are saved by faith by believing that the Father has already sent the Savior, baptism is a picture of our faith representative of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • Servant on John 3:5
    Baptism has nothing to do with Salvation. The Bible clearly states in Romans that "whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." No baptism mentioned or required. Also when Phillip was lead of the Spirit to Gaza to meet the unich has in Acts chapter 8.

    " And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.

    27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

    28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

    29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

    30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

    31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

    32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

    33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

    34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

    35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

    36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

    37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

    38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him."

    Question?

    The verse Deuteronomy 24:1, If a man has a wife and sends her out of the house with cussing words and violence and states she is no longer welcome and pays for her to move out of house and divorce. Is she free to be with another man? Is there a waiting period before she speak too or be with another man?
  • Rev Barbara Florence on Hebrews 12
    As Christians we receive either praise or chastisement from our Father God. I have come to appreciate both

    Chastisement helps me keep my feet firmly planted on Holy Ground in Jesus's Presence Praise tells me that Jesus is pleased that I am grounded where He has planted me.
  • Robyn Hocking on Matthew 1
    Just an interesting bit of research. Hebrew documents hidden in Israel including a lineage of Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, shows that the particular Joseph, listed as Mary's Husband Here. was actually her Father also called Joseph thus satisfying the 14 generations count as Mary is then counted as the next generation before Jesus. The specific Hebrew word for husband was not used although it was possible to translate that way but the general word for her male people/father was. Hope this blesses anyone getting caught up in the lineages, But as we are told in Scripture not to get bogged down in endless genealogies.
