  • Verse 13: In order to live we must have a reverential fear of Jehovah God and keep his commandments.
  • Frances Matthews on Romans 9
    God is still in control of the Remnant, I believe God said there is no respect of person, He whom gives his heart completely to God through the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ, being born again, and have become a new creature in the Lord, will be in the remnant, Jews, Greeks ,Blacks ,Whites, all of God's people, for God said he has sheep of another fold that He will bring, will be in the Remnant.
  • Jeff Berry on Genesis 1
    Brian, sin entered creation when Adam
  • Fred Sission on Psalms 23
    The 23 Psalms is near and dear to my heart, its like a tattoo, it can never be removed, it has taken me through the good, bad, and ugly of life, recalled a very depressed time in my life and i recited it over and over, what peace it brought to me, on that day!!
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 9
    "For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things..." Hebrews 10:1...looking ahead we see that the law was at best, a shadow, a figure, a type, with things on earth pre-shadowing both our lives as saints, and our lives in eternity. Chapter 9 is revealing how the types and shadows interact with the tabernacle and temple in light of our NT lives and living.
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 9
    "It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these." The OT reveals in figures and patterns, the reality we live today in Christ Jesus. You must read Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy to find figures and patterns of those things we experience today, and will experience in heaven.
  • Eutychus
    "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:" This new covenant is Jesus, the Word of God, dwelling within us in the person of the Holy Spirit, who leads us into all truth and verity. A promise fulfilled...
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 8
    "Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; a minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man." We have the ultimate high priest...but of the church, the true tabernacle, built as Jesus said he would. That tabernacle is the temple on earth.
  • Robin Jester on Hebrews 8
    The earthly tabernacle built during the exodus was patterned after the tabernacle of God in Heaven. Ex 25:8,9 40 . The tabernacle built "without hands" after which the earthly tabernacle was modeled resides in Heaven. The tabernacle system portrays the plan of salvation. The earthly version was the type: The heavenly version fulfills the types. This is the message of Hebrews 7-10.
  • Eutychus

    "For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did." The law was a stopgap measure (Gal 3:19), until the Seed of Abraham came, which is Christ. At that point, the law ceased to speak, and we walked into the reality of being justified by faith, not by law...
  • Eutychus

    Bet
    How can Paul equate Melchisedec to Jesus, who is God on earth among us???? Paul isn't equating Melchisedec to Jesus...he is drawing a comparison between their ministries, and their priesthoods. And Jesus' ministry and priesthood is superior. "By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament" vs 22. Melchizedec's ministry was temporal...Jesus' ministry is eternal, everlasting.
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 7
    "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually." No beginning, no end of life...here is the mystery...regarding which I will not attempt an answer. WHERE IS MELCHIZADEK? If he has no end of days, he must be alive...where is he? On earth? In heaven? Where then is Melchizadek?
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 6
    "That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation." vs 18. WHAT ARE THE TWO IMMUTABLE THINGS, Paul is speaking of here? Don't know? Read carefully, to verse 12, of chapter 7. That verse names the two immutable things...The priesthood, and the law, which have been fulfilled in Jesus. Both have been remade, made better, fulfilled, in Jesus.
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 6
    Please read again, the first 6 verses. Slowly, carefully, prayerfully. You are capable, with the help of the Holy Spirit, of fully understanding what is being said here. Read it, and tell me what it is saying...put aside what you've been told, and let a better teacher, the Holy Spirit, guide you into the truth. It isn't mysterious, nothing hidden. Just the words, saying what they mean, exactly.
  • Eutychus
    "Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
    And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;" The "HE" here is Jesus, Son of God.
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 5
    "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God;" The 'oracles of God' is another way of saying, the Word of God. We can spend a lifetime in church, and still be terribly ignorant of God's Word. And God's word, unknown, can do little to teach us truth. We must make it a part of ourselves, by study and prayer
  • Eutychus
    Jesus, "was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." 3 others are said to be without sin, or 'blameless' in the NT. They are Zacharias and Elizabeth, John Baptist's parents, Luke 1:6. And Paul, who testified he was, "touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless". Phil 3:6. Jesus' sinlessness qualified him to be the judge of all, "because he is the Son of man" John 5:27.
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 4
    "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Even your thoughts, even your plans, your intentions, are known of God. You CANNOT hide even a thought from God. He knows all, reads all, hears all. He is all in all.
  • Eutychus
    Hebrews is the gospel as God would have it spoken to the Jews, Hebrews. It speaks of the superiority of the gospel of grace over the law, the superiority of the priesthood of Melchisedec over that of the Levites. "For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity, a change also of the law." Heb 7:12. The priesthood belongs now, to the individual believer, to you and I. 1 Peter 2:5
  • Eutychus
    "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son". There are 2 speakings, 2 speakings only. The speaking of God unto the father by the prophets, which we have in the O.T., and the speaking today through His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, which we have in the NT, and in the Holy Spirit within us.
  • Eutychus
    Jesus was a man, yet he was without sin (Heb 4:15) And so he earned the authority to judge mankind (John 5:27). He is our advocate with God, because he, "needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man". vs 25. I too know what is in man. And I know the need man has for God, for guidance, for salvation, for deliverance, for grace, faith and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is all that.
  • Stephen Botts on 2 Chronicles 25
    Amaziah should have remembered the words of King Solomon:

    Proverbs 26:17: He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.
  • Eutychus on John 2
    Jesus built His church, which today is the sole Temple of God. He was incensed enough to drive the buyers and sellers (Luke 19:45) out of the temple of that day...how must he view buying and selling in his church, the Temple of our day? We pay preachers, who are selling what they know to us. "And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought"
  • Eutychus on John 1
    John's writings are unmistakable. He writes in a "Universal" manner, seeing the whole of creation and our places in it. His burden was love, His Lord was Jesus. Would that could be said of us. John writes of John Baptist, who he calls a man sent from God. John the Baptist denied being Elijah, but Jesus said he was (Matt 11:14). John was the living end of the law. Matt 11:13, Luke 16:16.
  • A disciple
    "Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy." It is easy for those who are not the ones being rebuked by the Lord, to complacently sit in judgment of those who are. The reason Jesus was so intense with the rulers of the people was because THEY WERE SITTING IN MOSES' SEAT! Their position of being guides and teachers of the people FOR GOD demanded that they be the MOST ACCOUNTABLE!
  • A disciple
    "...For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known." "The Lord desires truth on the inward parts" is the biggest thing that is revealed to us in the rebukes, corrections, and chastisements we all receive from our Father in heaven. While we already knew much before, it doesn't happen naturally that we change our NATURE: it comes through humiliation!
  • Eutychus
    "And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high". This is the 'power' spoken of by Jesus in Matt 22:29, "Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God". If we do not heed this truth, we have none to blame but ourselves. We must know the Word. We must know the power. Else where will we end up?
  • A disciple on Luke 12
    "..Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known." We repent of our sins and begin from that day forward to live with our back to the world and all our old ways, and start reading our Bibles every day, and change our behavior. Over time we experience all outward show being burned up.
  • Eutychus on Luke 24
    "Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures." This is not listed among the so-called 37 NT miracles. But a miracle it was. Due to this singular event, we have the NT in our hands today. If we cannot claim this miracle unto ourselves (though I do in my life, do you?), we can certainly claim the NT that resulted from this miracle. And that's good enough for me.
  • Eutychus on Luke 23
    "And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?" This is a 'death cross' confession, for before that utterance, both reviled Jesus, Matt 27:44 and Mark 15:32. Check it out...you'll see the man repented after reviling Jesus...
