    What is the meaning of the difference between the right hand and the left hand? This is in regard to one being radical and one being correct.

  • Brother dan - in Reply on Psalms 72
    I agree we are not under obligation of the old jewish traditional laws of the old testament like the various sabbath feasts, sacrifices and rituals etc. But it is a gigantic stretch of the imagination to apply this also to cancel the 4th commandment. Only Jesus or God can cancel one of the commandments. The commandments were written in stone, and will stand forever. God did not put the old Jewish ceremonial laws in stone - big difference.

    God's law is the 10 commandments.

    Luke 16:17 But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one dot of the Law to become void.

    17 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

    Jesus observed the Saturday sabbath while here on earth. Yes, he performed many things to heal and help others on the Sabbath. In doing so he was teaching all of us that we are to help others on the sabbath. When Jesus was accused of breaking the sabbath he instructed that certain things could be performed on this day. He DID NOT say to his accusers that the sabbath is no longer effective. To the contrary, he acknowledged it!

    Mark 2: 27-28 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. Why would Jesus say that he is Lord of the Sabbath if there is no longer a Sabbath?

    I'm not willing to follow the crowd today - that think there are only 9 commandments.

    Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    God Bless.
  • Andy G van den Berg on 1 Samuel 15
    On 1 SAMUEL 15:29

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting, repentings) is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    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 (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind 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).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true 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), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Revelation 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    Luke 15:10. LIKEWISE, I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OF GOD OVER ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH.
  • Wendy Dillon on Jeremiah 29
    Legal immigration...LEGAL!. We welcome all who wish to become an American and the first step is to use the LEGAL routes of entry.

    Can I illegally enter God's kingdom? NO. Accepting Jesus Christ as my redeemer gives me legal entry into His kingdom. Without it, I will be cast out where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
  • Mishael on Exodus 20:7
    If it's not cloudy where you live, you can go outside and see Saturn with the naked eye.

    It's the red looking star.
  • Vanessa on Psalms 1:5
    We do not sit in council of evildoers, we meditate on the word of God day and night,, we are held to the same account of those who do not follow the word of God and do what is pleasing to oneself , and then call ourselves righteous, seeking power and greed, shouting hatred, killing unborn babies, calling what is good evil, an what is evil good, allowing pride sinners parade in the streets and we stand with it, while churches are being told to be silent, we are like the wheat being tossed to and fro, not I, I can not even cast a vote for those that hold those values, I am grateful for the price Yeshua paid for me, a sinner saved by grace, a servant to the Lord till he calls me home, he is my Rock, my Refuge, my Fortress, under his wing I shall abide. He loved me long before I knew his love, he sent his beloved son to take my penalty God Bless you all and may peace be with you all
  • Mr - in Reply on Exodus 20:7
    If I find an error, I will contact; however that had nothing to do with my comment at all. The King James Bible is totally accurate. The singular and plural (such as thee or you) is grammatically accurate unlike all contemporary versions. Also, the base texts of Hebrew and Greek are pure. If someone uses another version they are deceived, or willing ignorant. The history from William Tyndale and friends to the King James Bible is humbling. The history of the modern perversions is abominable. Comparing the gold of the KJB with the error riddled modern perversions, should lead one to accept the gold, and reject the error. The occultic Jesuits are having a pro-Lucifer hay-day; they are vicious wolves in sheep's clothing, and are behind much of the King James battle as well as battles against received text Bibles in other languages around the world.

    Back on topic to Exodus 20, the modernist push to downplay the commandments of God is atrocious. 2 Timothy 3:16

    I wrote a long article concerning this on my website, with many scripture references. I tried to link to it, but no links are allowed. I can not post it here, because the text is too long. If you type, "what saith the scripture these three are one" you will find my youtube channel, and an introduction screen-cast to my site. On the site I list copious verses in defense of the law of Moses. The link on the left of my site is titled, "law of Moses _ validity". Jah is most high.

  • The Woes that should be given our attention - in Reply on Romans 1:32
    Isaiah 5

    20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

    22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

    23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

    24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

    >These kind of statements reveal the long suffering character of God. If we can wrap our minds around it; first we must change ourselves. Hallelujah, because we have the mind of Christ, and we have the Holy Spirit to be our Helper.

    We know what He cares about, and we can add that knowledge in when we are witnessing to the unsaved.

    By prayer to the Lord of the Harvest, we don't have to cold-contact , evil, violent people. He will bring those who are ready to hear the Gospel... who is Jesus.
  • Mark Kennady on Additions to Esther 10
    Do you think it's true that in Revelation of John that the number of the beast 666 is actually 618 when you add up the Greek numerals and then translate it to english?
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 72
    Romans 3:31 is a great verse but looking at what Paul said earlier, i.e. "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference" (3:20-22).

    A few things here: Paul was speaking to all there (both Jew & Gentile converts) yet some stumbled on this matter, particularly from Jewry who were once under the Law & were circumcised, which marked them as God's chosen. To those still applying the Law to their lives & putting themselves under it, are obliged to keep all the Law (Galatians 5:3). And "whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." (James 2:10). But the Law was given to Israel, not only as God's Standard of living for them, but to show them that they couldn't keep the Law, rather they fell far short of it. Hence, each year animal sacrifice was made to cover those sins. But after Jesus' death & resurrection, those who come by faith to Him are no longer bound to the Law, as God's Gift to us was the only One to have fully kept (& fulfilled) its Holy demands.

    So Paul makes a clear distinction: either you keep the whole Law & by it you will be judged: "as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law" (Romans 2:12), or you take hold of God's Righteousness which comes by faith in Christ. There's no possibility of fusing the two together for they oppose each other. "Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace" (Galatians 5:4). So the observance of the Sabbath day was a hallmark of Israel & they faithfully observed it. To make the Sabbath observance mandatory now means that we are no longer in the liberty of Christ but in bondage (Galatians 5:1).
  • Kevin mack on Deuteronomy 7
    I would like it very much if God would bring Deuteronomy chapter 7 to pass again ,for the United States of America against all the Jesus haters who burn our country, use biological weapons (coronavirus - Bill Gates ), push LGBT rights against the church of Jesus Christ, refuse to repent, support defund the police, support communist democratic party BLM agenda, Muslim brotherhood, communist China, Iran, bohemian grove moloch the horned owl cannibals, illuminati, Freemason, pedophiles, crooked politicians, deep state, shadow government down to hell . Psalms 143 last verse. Most of all, need mass revival. I weep for God's intervention.
  • Mary on Mark 3
    It is very confusing about blaspheming the holy spirit. Maybe it's the way that it's worded? I guess that I still don't understand it.

    Anyways, it would be considered legal to bring this guy's dead hand back to life on the Sabbath day. I think that anything that has to do with life and restoration is definitely allowable. And the Rabbi's would have known it too. So telling him not to do it - is a little bit like they thought they could control him with a technicality. And they might have thought of him as a fake healer. Of course maybe some just kind of knew that it was real, but didn't want to do the work and so forth, so they invalidated it by using another line of reasoning. But no matter where you go with it - it still comes back to amazing-

    Thanks Adam I appreciate your answers to my question. I was pondering that question with Father God and I just was wondering if people felt the way I felt about it. I feel that Jesus is all everyone will ever need. Love! Thanks Brother and Lord Bless!
  • George harrison on Romans 1:32
    We are now living in a day that right is wrong and wrong is right and people find pleasure in the sins of others rather than stand up against it. we as Christians are shepherds of the flock and are to stand up against the wolves of the world. stand up stand up for Jesus. This starts at home, then out into the world.
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 18:2
    Hello Omar,

    You are asking the right question. People searching for meaning outside of God often come up empty. It's not about wealth, that's why so many famous celebrities are unstable and have alcohol and drug addictions. The wisest man in the Bible who was a wealthy king wrote about this exact subject. It is worth reading: Ecclesiastes 2

    I believe the meaning of life is love and relationships. Relationships with God, family, friends, neighbors. Life is a test and God is testing our character and if we want to seek and follow Him. The greatest commandment in the Bible is Mark 12:30-31. The Bible is full of wisdom on how to live our life- like an instruction manual for a good, meaningful life.

    In addition, people who help others often feel a great sense of fulfillment. Volunteering, helping neighbors, pursuing the betterment of others. Not everyone says thank you. Only 10% came back to thank Jesus for healing him. But this is a way to build 'treasure' in heaven instead of pursuing empty pursuits of this world, in my opinion. Matthew 6:20

    John 16:33, 2 Corinthians 4:17, 1 Corinthians 13:13. Link

    God bless you...
  • Pray Without Ceasing - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    We are to PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.

    1 Thessalonians 5:17

    Pray without ceasing.

    1 Thessalonians 5:25

    Brethren, pray for us.

    (Pray for our ministers that are teaching Gods Word, every day.)

    Matthew 14:23

    And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart TO PRAY: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

    Matthew 24:20

    But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

    Mark 13:33

    Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

    Luke 6:28

    Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

    Luke 18:1

    And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

    >The reason it says pray that your flight be not on the sabbath, is because the Jews can't go over a certain distance. They wouldn't be able to flee to the mountains as another scripture tells us.

    >If we are not living a prayerful lifestyle..we are just fooling ourselves on how spiritual we think ourselves to be. That is Not an accusation.

    If you think that was unkind of me to say that, then go listen to some Charles Stanley sermons on a life of prayer, on YouTube. He teaches on tv every Sunday too.

  • The Blood of Jesus - in Reply on Revelation 19:13
    Revelation 19:13, clearly names Jesus as the Word of God.

    The blood of Christ one of the most important doctrinal teachings found in the Word of God. It is through the shedding of Christ's blood that WE can:

    Learn of God's and Christ's great love for us

    Be declared innocent from our many heinous sins

    Be delivered from the eternal wrath of Almighty God

    Be brought into communion with a Holy God.

    Be saved from eternal death and granted eternal life.



    Romans 5:8-10 - "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    Much more then, being now justified by his BLOOD, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

    For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

    No wonder His shed blood holds a core position of importance in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, it is the only hope for a person's salvation, receipt of other spiritual blessings and eternal security with Him.

    Sadly, many today will minimize the importance of the death and shed blood of Christ. It has been done throughout NT times and will continue to be done until Christ comes again. Anytime that we minimize what Christ has done for us (whether by word or action) after we have mentally received the truth about its importance, it is a sign of a lost condition and increased responsibility at the final judgment.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ephesians 4:11
    Not in my memory. He met Jesus on the Damascus Road. He was blinded by the experience for 3 days. His ears were ok.

    He heard Jesus's Voice perfectly.

    He turned from walking dead person to alive in Jesus Christ, in a heartbeat. He wrote much of the New Testament (not the Gospels).
  • Gabriel Pereda on Psalms 126
    I remember i read Psalms 126 when i was younger and i knew Jesus was with me. I didnt read it for a while and me and my mom asked ourselves, is it biblical to dream? That day after so long i remembered the words " we were like them that dream". Jesus comforted me again with Psalms 126 after so many years. He is healing and restoring me. Never give up because Jesus will turn your captivity.

    On 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 inRevelation 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.

    It should be noted that in over 36 years of service we have never collected/received, solicited or requested donations. The gift of 'Life' was freely given and freely do we give to all those that believe (2 Kings 5:16; Matthew 6:26; 10:8).

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

  • Keynayoka B Benton - in Reply on James 1:5
    There is no where in the bible that speaks of a man skin color. People assume because the Israelites was in slaved in Egypt which is in Africa that they were black. The Israelites were a multitude of different people and nationality just as Christians are today. The Israelites was from the land of Israel and Judah which they fled to Egypt because of the famine that God had placed on them because of their disobedience and their failure to repent. They fled to Egypt because they know that Joseph was there and that he had power and he would welcome them there. But when Joseph died the Israelites started living the lifestyle of the Egyptians and neglecting God again, so God allowed them to be put into Slavery as a punishment just like he sent the famine back in Israel. Even after the Israelites was freed from slavery they was suppose to only send 40 days in the wilderness but because they lack of faith and complaining it turned into 40 years. They even tried to go back to Egypt and also they started building golden images to wordship after all God had done for them. Its plenty of more situation in the bible where the Hebrews, the Israelites, the Jews had to suffer punishment from God because of their unwillingness to trust and follow God. Sad to say we as Modern Day Christians are following the same path that they went through.

    Israelites were a group of people that God chose and he gave them the responsibility to spread the message about Jesus Christ coming to die and to redeem them from sin. Today as Christians its our responsibility to share to the world about the love Jesus and his second coming so that everyone can be saved and have eternal life.

    Please Note: Israelites Slavery and Black Slavery is not the same type of slavery. Israelites was in a Spiritual Slavery because of the disobedience to God and not doing his will. Black Slavery was man desire to control another race of people for financial gain.

    National news media in the USA will most likely not report this story. You may have to read national Israeli news, Jerusalem Post.
  • In the News Today on Revelation 20:3
    THIS WAS IN THE NEWS this morning!

    This is a threat, that if it comes to pass (it really happens), God is going to prevent all the bombs they launch at Israel, from hitting the ground.

    It would be a miracle of the same magnitude as opening the Red Sea so the Israelites could flee Pharaoh, in the Old Testament.

    If you want to verify the story is true, go to the ACLJ website and read it. Sign the petitions against it.

    I am so grieved that this country would now elect a president that most likely, will not act Against this threat.

    It's also a sign of the times that we are living in; approaching. Let Gods Word be true, and everyone who denies it, a liar.

    Prophesies do not lie. If it's written, it will happen, as written. I'll be back later when I locate that prophesy in the prophetic books. I'll post it. Glory to God in the Highest!! We're going to our new home soon.

    "In a huge development, the U.S. has brokered a major peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    Showing their true colors, Palestinian leaders are calling this PEACE deal a "stab in the back." The Palestinian terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad were quick to condemn peace and try to stir up further animosity.

    This is a major move for the security of our ally Israel.

    Yet, the anti-Israel U.N. and terrorist agitators in the Middle East - like Iran - want to destroy Israel. The president of the Palestinian Authority even threatened that "MILLIONS OF FIGHTERS" would attack Jerusalem and Israeli settlements "shall all be destroyed." Air attacks.

    We were there when the U.S. embassy was moved to the eternal capital of Israel - Jerusalem. We're aggressively working to defend Israel's interests.

    Just days ago, we sent a new legal letter to the U.N. Security Council to defend Israel's interests. And we're in federal court in our 3 major Israel-related cases, where "Palestinian" agitators are threatening Israel's interests with bogus lawsuits.
