    Go to store and find PRE-biotics. (Also get PRObiotics. I like one called Pearls.)

    Yogurt doesn't work well and most of them Are full of sugar. A lot of dairy causes constipation, yeasts and weight gain, gas.

    Prebiotics, feed the probiotics. Take Pre for a couple of days and then start Pro. After you are cleaned out, your gut should work better. You'll think you have diarrhea but it's the bacteria running away from the probiotics.

    Antibiotics KILL your pre and pro biotics. You'll have start all over again after you finish the antibiotics.

    Try to limit cheesy foods and ice cream. Learn how to pan sear a strip steak in a skillet. (Sometimes it sets the smoke alarm off). Have good ventilation lol. Then pile on green & orange veggies.

    You can eat 33 gallons of salad and hardly gain any weight, IF you don't pile on dressings, croutons and cheese, breadsticks.

    Crumble a boiled egg on it instead and grate on some carrot and radish or red bell pepper strips on top. Drizzle olive oil & garlic powder, salt, pepper. Looks good :D

    Let me know if it works for you. The Bible has diets in it. Old Testament.
  • Mishael on Bible Covenants on Matthew 24:12
    Very enlightening to google Bible Covenants! Covenants are very binding and that's why we are warned to not enter one lightly.

    1 Samuel 18:4 Exchanging Armor

    And Jonathan stripped himself of the ROBE that was on him and gave it to David, and his ARMOR, and even his SWORD and his BOW and his BELT.

    Jesus exchanged HIS armor with US. Why?

    Because we are warring against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-18. Read ALL those center column references to other Books. See Isaiah 24:21-22. Romans 13:1-5,11-12; John 12:31

    Jesus did not leave us here to just wear a wedding garment and hold a lamp of oil.

    He left us scripture that we are to war against spiritual war in the heavenlies. It's about strong faith and prayer: intercession; "standing in the gap". Jesus is making intercession for us right now! People come into the prayer room with grievous problems we SHOULD BE praying & doing war for. Ephesians 6:12, Romans 8:38, Colossians 1:9, 16-17; 2:15. 1 Thessalonians 5:8

    Standing in the gap is when you hold a lamb in your arms of prayer, and war against the demonic hoards that are trying to kill it; steal its life, destroy its hope in Jesus! It should make you want to save that lamb. Do you have any lambs in your life? Are you willing to snatch it out of the hands of Satans hoard of demons, WITH the WORD of God?

    You have a wealth of Bible Knowledge but are any lambs being saved with weighty speech? Don't you want to receive a Crown at Bema Seat? What would Jesus do? He showed us in His Gospels. If we are His followers we will imitate what he was Doing.

    Multitudes of people just in America, are committing suicide for unbelievable reasons. That's on Satans scoreboard. Is there anyone who will challenge that? Do you know how to take the scriptures and frighten the demons off of someone on a chair with a rope around their neck? Or a hypodermic needle going in an arm.

    Parents!Pray rightly for your kids. Punch out Satan

  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 35
    Be careful telling others they will go to hell if they do ____. The Bible says not to do that and says what will happen if you do. Matthew 7:1. Secondly, that's an assumption and you don't actually know how God will judge. Romans 9:15, Matthew 7:14.

  • Judy - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Thank you, Violet, for such beautiful God-thoughts of love for everyone. You are truly blessed!
  • Jesse - in Reply on Luke 10
    Willie,

    Here is my understanding of what love your neighbor means. First of all, Luke 10:27 says Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. This comes from Deuteronomy 6:5, thou shalt love the Lord your God, and then Leviticus 19:18, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

    The term "Thou shalt love" in the Greek text is not in command form. It is called a Future Active Indicative. What this is telling us is that if we have the Spirit of Christ living in us, WE WILL love the Lord with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind, and WE WILL love our neighbor as ourselves. It is a statement of fact. The word love is the word Agape. This is different from human love (Phileo). Agape love is a fruit of God's Spirit which we are given in Galatians 5:22.

    What is interesting is that to the Jews in the Old Testament, their neighbor was their fellow Jew. In the New Testament, the word neighbor for the Christian is a reference to other Christians. In fact, Jesus said it. He said, "All men will know that you are my disciples when you have love for one another." The highest love that I can show my brothers and sisters in Christ is to be obedient to Christ.

    So, we are not commanded to get out there and start loving our neighbors. The command is YOU WILL. Its a factual statement. Since God is love (Agape), and He gives us His Spirit, and His Spirit in us produces that love, WE WILL love our neighbor, and WE WILL love the Lord our God. It's impossible not to because His Spirit in us produces that love!
  • Gwendolyn Rolax - in Reply on Psalms 35
    Ms. Betty, I do know about forgiving. You need to let loose and let God. Go in a place where you can close the door. Read the psalm, after you read it call these girls name out. Watch how things change. I love you Ms. Betty with God's Blessing.

    Word to the wise. If you don't forgive..if you were to die...you will go straight to "hell"
  • Gwendolyn Rolax on Psalms 35
    This psalm is so very powerful against anyone that come against you whether its family, friend or foe. Powerful. It turns the situation around in your favor especially at the end of reading the psalm. Call their name out and watch God.

  • Adriaan Snyman on Ecclesiasticus 3
    Amen, I agree with that. Deeds cannot take away sins. Only the One sacrifice that was made, by God's righteousness. Yet I wonder if there is not some deeper meaning here I am missing. For instance, if the translation should not rather have been the giving of alms protects one from the attacks of the enemy which causes us to sin (as a form of living in God's righteousness.) But I will have to read the original version before I can say for certain.

  • Andrew Kingsly Raj Andrew - in Reply on Matthew 7:14
    Yeah, you are correct. Heaven is real, at the same time hell is also real. If any one wants to go to Heaven, He should acknowledge and accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior. Other wise they will go to hell. Mormons, Catholicism, etc.,. are lead by satan. For Devil is the lier, he makes a false christianity. Be careful of those kinds of false techings.
  • Vendall on Matthew 7:14
    The world has its perception of God and His Heaven. They believe in a generic god. They believe that all people are basically good, they believe people can become angels, they believe that almost everyone goes to heaven when they die from this world..there are even pastors who help perpetuate this delusion. That is the broad way which many travel...But we know the truth. That only by belief in Jesus Christ and repentance of sin can you go to heaven. That is the narrow way we few travel.
  • Robert - in Reply on Isaiah 59
    Isaiah, Chapter 59.

    We don't have the ability, because of our sin, to put on God's armor, so God has put all the armor we need on his Son to become our shield. As Satan rules earth and is finite, our infinite God concentrates on our eternal life, whether in darkness or in light.

    All the commands God gives us in His Word can only be achieved by his Son, Jesus Christ, not us. We are in the wrong gospel when we look to ourselves in becoming righteous and obedient to the Law of God, who by His definition is being without sin and is the Word who dwelt among us, our Redeemer.

    Other gods are other gospels, and other gospels are judged in Revelation 22: 18&19 adding or taking away from God's Word. (For whosoever keeps the whole Law of God and yet offends in one point is guilty of all.)

    No wonder God keeps reminding us to fear Him, and showing us we are to approach Him "empty" as sinners, begging for mercy and no other way.

    When we trust and wait for Christ and live by the faith "of" Christ, not our worthless faith, a channel opens for us to pray to Him where our hope and wishes become exactly the will of God.

    God is a Spirit and we are to worship Him in Spirit and Truth. One sin will send us into eternal death, so it is unprofitable for his servants to profess moral conduct to the masses. We are still blind to Him when we seek Him literally, not spiritually.

    When we are poor in spirit, or meek, or lowly we are open to His Spirit and without another gospel blocking The Word of God.

    As we read or hear The Holy Bible we are being covered by the robe of Christ's righteousness and His helmet of salvation.

    Religion comes in many forms that pollute God's Word. To live by the faith of the Son of God is the opposite of being religious and opens us to be indwelled by the Father and Son and the Holy Spirit. That is salvation, and salvation is everything.

    Variations of Gods word will die with us.

    God's Word is Holy and will live with us forever.

    Amen
  • Willie on Luke 10
    I have always thought i knew what vs 27 meant, but with all that is going on today and especially when this mega church pastor "who will remain " nameless" spouts off non sense

    what exactly does love your neighbor as yourself mean? I live in the south now and i am not seeing a lot of this, i am pretty sure i know what this means but I can't put it into words so i would like someone to help me to make sure I am getting this one right, because i read that love covers a multitude of sins so I want to make sure i understand this correctly.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 21:9
    Page 2.

    Can we then resurrect that 'dead' sin nature? Does it even still exist? Sadly, until we get to Heaven, our sin nature will always remain in us, but the victory lies in how we deal with it & how we deal with Satan who appeals to that nature. Can we resurrect that nature? Every time we listen to Satan, we are resurrecting that nature. Every time we listen to God, we are keeping that nature 'in death' & living in the Spirit. And this was the struggle that was with Paul as he wanted to live in the Spirit, but Satan kept attacking him in his old nature.

    So, Joan, the struggle will always continue while we're here on Earth, but Christ gives us the victory. What can you do? You have already pleaded with God for release from your bondage - God hears your cries. Has He put anything else on your heart? I don't know your story, but the Spirit of God is there for you to give it all to Him & to give you victory. If your mind is afflicted, then set your mind on wholesome, spiritual things that are found in God's Word. If it is a lust for something, then turn away from that temptation or remove it from your view altogether & turn to God in prayer & in His Word. When you resist Satan, he will flee (James 4:7) because He knows that you are calling upon the Power of God against him. This is not just theoretical, but very practical as we stand against the wiles of the devil. Talk to the Lord often, wherever you are & in whatever you're doing & when Satan is near to tempt you, run to the Lord Who is listening for your call. And remember, your stand against the enemy can only be done in the Spirit's Power & not in your own strength.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 21:9
    Joan, Romans 7 is one of those very personal, intimate revelations Paul gave of his life: his battle between the spirit & the flesh. He could have easily avoided mentioning his struggle & given his readers the impression that he was a great follower of Christ, enjoying daily victory over every sin. But, being led of the Spirit, he had to confess that his apostleship, his meeting with Christ & even his vision of the glory of Heaven, were not enough to raise him to any greater position than we are at today. In fact, he said that he was "given a thorn in the flesh" (2 Corinthians 12:7) to keep him humble so those privileges wouldn't 'go to his head'.

    So in Romans 7, Paul speaks of his battle in the spirit. He longed to please God in every area of his life, but evil (i.e. the working of the body of sin) was always present with him. And so he struggled, but he found that through all this, that only Jesus Christ could help & deliver him. How so? Two ways: by virtue of Christ's death, Paul & all who believe on Jesus, have their sins dealt with at the Cross. In other words, Satan can no more accuse us before God. And secondly, through Jesus alone, could Paul & us find victory over the flesh. Even though Satan will always niggle at us to make us sin, Christ gives us the power to withstand Satan & the appeals of the flesh. In fact, Paul speaks in Galatians 2:20 that he is now crucified with Christ & in Romans 6:6, he tells us that our 'old man' (our old nature) was crucified at the Cross. And if that is the case, we are to reckon ourselves dead to sin & now alive to God through Jesus (Romans 6:11). (onto Page 2.)

  • Adam - in Reply on Romans 9
    Hi there, your interpretation of this is very different. You consider this chapter discouraging to your faith, but I find it encouraging. You interpret this as a 2 faced God, but I see a consistent God of love. Whose interpretation is right? Have you ever considered why you interpret this the way you do? Does everyone interpret it your way? Why or why not? What if there are other perspectives?

    The loving God I know hates sin. Sin is evil and involves hate, and the opposite of evil is good done through love. To follow God is a blessing and honor. I've been hearing some Christians complain that they feel entitled to sin and do evil, that it's wrong to not allow them to do it as Christians. This is just a lie from satan who likes deceiving people.

    I don't know what part of this chapter you have a stumbling block on, but I can say, that most people likely don't interpret it the way you do.
  • G.A on Jude 1
    God tells us He never called an Angel His Son we are all Sons and Daughters equal in Christ Jesus and Adopted by God yes like The Godhead our roles are different but God has no favorites. Jude tells us the Angels sinned the same as those in Sodom and Gomorrah Verses 7-8. Deuteronomy tells us who Gods Sons were who had relations with these Woman. yes we need to read carefully Gods Truth in Scripture but not with Man or Woman's understanding but with Gods Wisdom.
  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 12
    Keun, from my observations over many, many years, is that both the non-Christian & Christian don't "take this Book too seriously" enough. If you are referring to the Bible, God's Word to us for today & into the future, I have found that we are in the mess we are in today, because we have failed to heed God's Commands given to us in Love & not for our hurt & destruction. We have preferred to go our own way giving little regard to spiritual matters rather attending to worldly possessions & happiness. I wonder how many happy faces are there in Hell?

    And so our present state reveals the extent of our deterioration, the deserving of rejection by God, & the necessary closing of this wicked age. Yes, the Bible contains some very serious matters in its pages, & we could do no less than to take it seriously & not casually or flippantly. I sincerely hope that you will carefully & prayerfully read through its pages & learn what God intends for your life & future.
  • Mishael on Pre-Born Children on Revelation 13
    Psalms Chapter 139:14-17

    I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

    My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

    Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy BOOK all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

    How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

    Comment: God records in a Book: even child that hasn't been conceived yet!

    There isn't anything happening in our lives that isn't openly seen. Even the children that didn't live because of various reasons.

    God receives them all.

    It has been said that children who are innocent and don't know what it is to lie & be deceptive (before age of accountability) will be taken to heaven upon death: all those who died in the womb; those who died as young children; and those who are alive when we are all CAUGHT UP in the clouds to meet Jesus. I don't like to say rapture because it starts fights.

    Anyway! Praise God. I'd like to read that book, but it's probably very precious to the Lord.

    Parents take your older children to Sunday school. Like us, they must be born again... before The Last Day.

  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1:3
    Sadly, this type of behaviour has been known to happen & leads to many of the congregation leaving the Church looking for somewhere else to worship. What happened to the Elders who appointed this man to lead the fellowship? You mentioned the 'founders' of the Church, but every Bible-based Church has to have elders that govern & administer the Church's affairs. They are primarily responsible for who leads, teaches & shepherds the flock. If only the one man is the Elder cum Pastor, then the Church is subject to his direction only & is not operating as Christ intended His Church to be. Is there any possibility for the concerned members to approach the man to discuss this matter & alert him to the biblical standards? However, ultimately only God can change his attitude & direction, or else, members need to look elsewhere to worship.
  • Mishael on 1 Corinthians 7 - in Reply on John 11
    In 1962 in America, one old lady athiest won her case to ban the Bible and the 10 Commandments out of public schools.

    Why? people were fascinated with the space program and the upcoming moon walk.

    You grew up without any reaffirmation of any public kind, Or from unchurched parents or schools. It was put upon the Church to teach 10 commandments but they were afraid of having tax exempt status taken away.

    This is Gods way to have a successful life and marriage. 1 Corinthians chapter 7

    1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

    2 Nevertheless, to avoid FORNICATION let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

    3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence (marital relations) and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

    4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. (Don't use sex to get your own way)

    5 Defraud ye not (Withhold sex) one from the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

    6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

    7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God (celibacy) one after this manner, and another after that. (Marriage)

    8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. (Abstaining)

    9 But if they cannot contain (not having sexual relations) let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

    In society, fornication has been made acceptable. Problem is the two become one, and after experimentation and breakups, we have all these old soul ties to other lovers, that weaken a marriage at the start. It takes prayer by the new couple to sever those ties to the past. Mutual respect keeps marriage strong.
  • Chris - in Reply on Judges 13
    Robert, okay I see your approach in writing this & I fully agree with what you've said. And to highlight the importance of the message, is indeed very important, though I find that one still needs to deal with the 'trees & leaves' for better understanding of that message. And this is probably where our divergent opinions become more pronounced as we grapple with those specific words; and I'm not referring to Bible translations, which you mentioned, here.

    For example, I think of the endless debate on the Lord's Second Coming: indeed, it is a matter of great interest & expectation for most of us, but we all have our opinions on, for example, the 'last trump' & are convinced that what we believe is what is going to happen. I feel it is the right thing to want exposition of that phrase, but we generally won't admit that there is a possibility that we're wrong & just have to leave the matter until more Light comes our way. Yesterday, I was listening to a study on this aspect, where the teacher spoke of the Feast of Trumpets relating to the 'last trump'. He had taken pains to go through each of the Jewish Feasts, seeing each one fulfilled in Christ & the Church. So, I thought that was interesting, but should I accept that view in the light of the other interpretations offered? There must be a time when we need to step back & remain open without having guilt for not following a particular view. Blessings to you too as we together hunger more of God's Word.
  • Barbara E Jones on Revelation 7:9
    Our country is being attacked from inside by numerous different groups. We need God more than ever. All that our fore fathers fought and died for us being corrupted. I am requesting as many prayers for peace to be returned to America as well as many of the American people to turn back to God as possible! Pray for our people and country. GOD BLESS AMERICA! Thank you!
