  • Tiyo Harris - in Reply on John 14
    John 14 is one of many scripture I hold dear to my heart. The words Jesus spoke to us, "Let not you heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. . ." Christian's, God sends trials our way to strengthen us. It is a workout of our belief. I kneel down to God (sometimes, I lay on the floor-face drown crying to my Father and His Son Christ Jesus. I tell him all my pain-spiritual warfare. Psalms is still alive today. The Lord is my Shepard, I shall not want. He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my (Our) soul. Yeh, though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil. For thou are with me. Thy rod and staff comfort me. Believers, GOD IS WITH US ALWAYS! GOD BLESS
  • Tiyo Harris on John 14
    John 14 is one of my rocks, which I stand upon. Let not your heart be trouble (anxiety, depression, opression). Neither let it be afraid. Why Christian's? God is our Rock to which we stand. Christian's need to give ALL that troubles us to God. He will never leave us, or forsake us. He is our Comforter. To those who desire to harm us, "Vengance is mine sayeth the Lord. I WILL REPAY." If find myself running in circles, lost. I do not hear God speaking with His still & calm voice. And when I calm myself down. I am reminded that God sets my feet on solid ground. The Lord sends trials our way, to make us stronger. Trials will always be out there. We need to hold our hands up, to God!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

    In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    The First Resurrection is of the dead in Christ and the Second is after 1000 years. Paul wrote that the Dead in Christ MUST rise FIRST, THEN we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

    16 ...and the dead in Christ shall RISE FIRST

    17 THEN we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them...

    In Revelation 20:4-5, John sees the souls of Saints who were BEHEADED for refusing the Mark of the Beast during the Great Tribulation. John writes that they will rise and reign with Christ for 1000 years and that this is the FIRST RESURRECTION!

    If according to John, the beheaded rise in the FIRST resurrection and Paul said those who are alive and remain are not caught up until AFTER the dead in Christ are resurrected, then this means the catching up or rapture takes place AFTER tribulation!

    Now compare the above with 1 CORINTHIANS 15:20-23:

    20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of those who slept.

    21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

    22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    23 But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; AFTERWARDS THOSE WHO ARE CHRIST'S AT HIS COMING.

    Notice only one resurrection of the dead in Christ is mentioned here! Which, according to Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 must take place BEFORE we who are alive and remain are "caught up" with them!

    When did Jesus say the dead in Christ would be resurrected?

    John 6:39-40: Jesus said, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up ON THE LAST DAY.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8

    In Revelation 20:4-6 the last book of the Bible there are only 2 more FUTURE Resurrections (Raptures) spoken of: (after the 2 witnesses appear)

    4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the FIRST RESURRECTION. or rapture

    6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the SECOND DEATH hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

  • Veronica Bowen on Matthew 24:8
    I am having a (sometimes heated) discussion. I say the Rapture will come before the Tribulation. He says the Tribulation will come before the Rapture. What are some Scriptures that I can show him that will show that the Rapture will precede the Tribulation?

    Thank you.
  • Laurie on Psalms 70
    I commit my life to God.
  • Norma Coleman on Psalms 32:8
    It is said that the eyes are the window to your soul, then it also saids that the soul is the most inner parts of our being. That to me are the heart and the emotions. I believe God sees with, his heart, his Spirit. So when he says, " I will guide you with my eyes." He is guiding us with love, as a parent does for their children. You see God leads with his heart and that is what he is trying to get us to do. Let him lead us with his heart.
  • Ronald A Foster - in Reply on 2 Esdras 6:9
    With all due respect, my authority is the Holy Scriptures specifically the Original African Heritage Edition KJV. (Not excluding other translations). I measure everything else written using this Bible as my truth.

    Of course there is much one can learn from other written materials in any field of study but something as serious as the subject we are discussing...adding to or replacing is not something I want to venture into. God our creator preceded all of the writers of the past, present and future. His words are what I stand on and base my life on and through the shedding of the blood of His Son Jesus Christ I have been saved.

    If God says it, I have enough faith to believe it. If He didn't say it or it isn't written through Him, I have to question it.

    Thanks for responding
  • Mike on Matthew 24:5
    Matthew 24:5 KJV

    (5) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

    Many false prophets shall come in His name (using the name "Jesus") saying that "I am the Christ"....that is, they come preaching "another Jesus" and state that the Jesus that they are preaching is the true Christ.

    They come preaching "another Jesus" stating that their Jesus is the true Christ (I am the Christ) and deceive the many who gladly bear with them.

    2 Corinthians 11:3-4 KJV

    (3) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

    (4) For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    But the "Jesus" that they preach is not the true Christ but is the "Antichrist"...instead of the true Christ.

    Dear Chris

    Thanks for that but you did not answer me fully. I asked what the difference between Ministering and Teaching is. You touched on the first and not the latter. Please assist and explain fully

    God Bless
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    DiamondJane exactly and Jesus even uses this imagery in his words.

    Matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

    Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

    i love it
  • Patty Tozi on Numbers 35
    Do you ever think about your life in these days? How close we are to losing our life faster then before. As the trees come down we will see more of God's creations die. So what does that mean? The less of God's creations our strength is harder to get. Unless you study and pray for our Heavenly Father to help us. Do not straddle the fence. Do not stop seeing day to day how God can take you away as we take His creations down. The sprays- the pollution..all killing us now slowly..or the silent virus that comes in a wink of an eye to get us. His warriors are struggling as we fight the evilness this world has become. We know now we live day to day. Never knowing without God close we would be gone in a wink of our eye. We most totally rely on our Father. Even our air we breathe. This world has turned way worse then l ever studied in 2012. Lies and deceit everywhere. Our God is our strength. Mankind our enemy. The evilness will show up right away if you have the light for strength around you to see. For everything will be exposed to you. Days going faster now-- have you noticed? Have you slowed down enough to really see the truth of our world now? Well, you should. Our life can end as fast as it began. So reach up to the Heavens always...not the world.
  • Carla on Genesis 37
    Please tell me which will come first , the REAL rapture? Or The faux immitation Jesus to fool the Christians?
  • D.J. - in Reply on 2 Esdras 6:9
    Ronald, (Concerning the days of the week)

    Have you considered looking at the Dead Sea Scrolls?

    The Book of Enoch, in particular, reveals a 364 day solar priestly calendar; used by Israel until around 175 B.C.

    52 (weeks) x 7 = 364

    Look at the first book of Enoch; specifically, ch. 72, and ch. 82 (column 27) are words concerning the ancient solar calendar.

  • Diamondjane - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    I appreciate your message. I found in my travels another understanding by a woman who wrote a paperback of Psalms 91. She described Gods call to his children in the face of danger as a mother hen. A mother hen will cluck warnings to her chicks and they respond by running to mom's call. Once they reach mom she will lift her feathers so that every last chick jumps in and is covered. Mom will keep that open until every last chick finds safety. I hope that resonates a sense of security as it does for me.
  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on Luke 6:28
    "Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you".We must conceive of the words, Luke 6:27 and Luke 6:28, as having been pronounced with some kind of enthusiasm.These precepts overflow with Love.You have only to meet every manisfestation of hatred with a fresh manisfestation of love. Romans 12:21 and Romans 5:8-10 KJV.

  • Ronald A Foster on 2 Esdras 6:9
    Since the Bible does not use the actual man-made names of the week such as Saturday and Sunday....How can we be sure what day is the first, second or any other day as established by our creator?
  • Michael Gonzales on Daniel 2:43
    The word "seed" in Daniel 2:43 is a very unique Aramaic word, in that, it is only used once in the entire Scriptures. It does not refer to a seed of grain, or a seed for natural birth, ie; a seed for mammal, reptile, or fowl reproduction. This "seed" is unique. Possibly the hidden seed found in DNA. Mixing the DNA of God's creation to make a new creation would be the only abominable sin that would make desolate. Hence, the term "the Abomination that makes desolate" used in Daniel 11:31, Daniel 12:11. Satan's copy of God's creation. This abominable creation is doomed to hell because it will not be born of water (natural birth) and therefore cannot be "Born Again" it would make it desolate. John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Because of these verses, an artificial creation would be an "Abomination that makes desolate".
  • Rick Colombe on Matthew 22
    To Mickey on Matthew 22. I would love to know exactly where in God's Word it talks about being "raptured". You even give a when, where, etc. and what comes after this rapture. I suggest you do prayerful research on this subject, where you'll not find a"rapture" in God's written word. Look up Margaret McDonold. I will. I believe the date was 1844.
  • Alex on John 1:3
    Comments on John 1. His life was the LIGHT OF MEN ,but here are 2 lights the lesser light and the greater light. The bible is the lesser light THE WRITTEN WORD but the greater light is the H.G. THE LIVING WORD . One is a night light and 1 is a day light, Jesus said are there not 12 hours in a day and 12 hours in a night, If a man walk in the night he will stumble. David said thy word is a light unto my path, and a lamp unto my feet. describing a night light but David stumbled, ( Bathesheba ) .But he was forgiven . But my point is the written word answers to the lesser light but the living word which is the H.G. ANSWERS TO THE LIVING WORD, my words are spirit and life which is the H.G. tHE GREATER LIGHT. Search the scriptures in them you think you have eternal life but it is them that testify of ME, No eternal life in the written words the scriptures th bible etc,If eternal life were in the written words the Scriptures, jesus shed his blood in vain and the cross was just foolishness. thats the point i am trying to make, that you see the 2 lights the 2 words one is spirit and 1 is paper and ink. Mary was not impregnated by the written word but by the living Word, as Jesus is the living word made flesh and blood the Greater Light. the lesser light is like the moon, it has no light of its own the only light it has is what is reflected from the son/sun. Thus if the H.G the greater light does not revel it unto you there is no spritual light in it as satan can be an angel of light ' but thats a false light ( written words ) without the spirit of Christ as he said my WORDS ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE THE LIGHT OF MEN ( THAT GREATER LIGHT ) THE SON/SUN. REMEMBER JESUS SAID THE NIGHT COMES WHEN NO MAN CAN WORK. Jesus also said The days will come when you will desire to see 1 of the days of the son of man the greater light but you will not see them impling a time of darkness spritually, Isaiah said that darkness will cover the earth and gross darkness th people. The present time gb
  • Chris - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1:1
    Joseph, if I could add to those excellent advice given by Hogan, on spending time with the Lord in prayer & in His Word.

    As we walk out into a new day armed with the Word & the richness of a prayer time with your Father, we must seek out opportunities that will allow the Spirit of God to move amongst others. We know that the Holy Spirit moves over many hearts to "reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement" (John 16:8), but He mostly works through us who have experienced forgiveness of sins & have a new hope & new life.

    So whether you're at work, doing some shopping, meeting someone on the street, or even offering help to an elderly/infirm/needy person, ask the Spirit of God to use you to show forth the Love & Grace of God & to share the Word of God that you've been studying, to others. As you serve Him, even in a small way, you will know in your heart, by the witness of the Spirit, that the ministry you've just done was only because of Him being in you & working through you, for GOD'S GLORY only. Now, if that isn't a great confirmation of the indwelling Holy Spirit - and you will increase in your faith & can expect greater things from God.
