    Somebody should have told Jesus all this before he met with the disciples in John chapter 20. ()
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Ephesians 4:11
    Paul first met the resurrected Lord Jesus in Acts chapter 9. At that time, Paul was known as Saul. He was on his way to Damascus to persecute the believers when a blinding light shone from heaven and the Lord spoke unto him.

    1st Corinthians 15 also gives Paul's recounting of Jesus' several appearances to witnesses after his resurrection.

  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Every day should be a day of praying. The day is not the important matter. The important thing is that we have an everlasting relationship with God through Jesus Christ who shed his blood on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead for our justification.

    Days for worship with others is at our own choosing, whenever we can meet with fellow believers.
  • Mina on Numbers 17
    Our righteousness is like a filthy rugs compared to the righteousness of God. If it's not for God's mercy, we all deserve to be punished and suffer in the lake of Fire. We fail God everyday, and base on the present condition of the world we are living in, all the terrible things happening all around us including abortion, killings of the innocent, every sin unimaginable,whether directly and indirectly, we are affected by it. What are we doing about it? Mostly, we condemn each other, we blame each other, compare ourselves to each other, boastful. etc.

    We all need to repent and ask God's forgiveness for the sins of this world. It is ours to bear the burdens of this world. We ought to love one another and spread the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. So often we forget. Woe to all of us! May God forgive us all in our shortcomings- Amen.

    Whose blood is sprinkled on the vesture; Is it the blood of the defeated enemy, or Christ's blood as atonement for our sins? I have Zondervan KJV Study Bible. The footnotes indicated that it could have been either. That note only led to confusion on my part.

    Thanks, Roy
  • Andy G van den Berg on Revelation 20:3

    Please consider the following:

    God unites His people (the believers) by His Spirit (John 4:24; Ephesians 4:3-6,13).

    Luke 9:56. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.

    Matthew 11:6. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (Isaiah 8:14; Matthew 13:57; 24:10; 26:31; Romans 9:32; 1 Cor. 1:23; 2:14; Galatians 5:11; 1 Peter 2:8).

    John 3:19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    Luke 11:22. But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

    1 John 4:4-6. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he than is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

    Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice ( John 8:47; 18:37).

    You search the scriptures for in them ye think that ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life (John 5:39,40).

    He that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things, yet he himself is judged by no man (1 Corinthians 2:15).

    There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true (Proverbs 1:7; 10:8,21; 12:15; 13:20; 14:9; 16:22; 18:2; 20:3; 29:11; Luke 18:10-14; Cor. 1:20; 2:14; 15:36).

    We regret that you are not able to understand any of the above (1 Corinthians 2:14; 2 Cor. 7:10). Notwithstanding: Seek and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

    Don't let your self-righteousness stand in the way of your salvation (Romans 10:2-4).

    In His Service.

  • Andy G van den Berg - in Reply on Psalms 91:7

    May we suggest you read 1 Cor. 2:14,15 and than study what it means to repent and when you change from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18) you will learn that the 'California Wildfires' are indeed God's wrath. It is the fruit of the unbelief of the people, as they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ, as you do yourself (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    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).
  • LaShae Riggs on Proverbs 22:24
    Some men not all wants to be Holy and deceive you too believe his everyword but doesn't want too do God's will it's not right and it doesn't work that way
  • Andy G van den Berg on Ephesians 5:26
    On Ephesians 5:6

    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.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind 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).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. 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.

    Only through 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) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and overcome this world (1 John 5:4).

    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 means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    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). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:1
  • Mild Bill on Psalms 9
    The gates of death, is a threshold we all live near. By God's mercy and grace we do not enter eternity there. But rather, through the Lord Jesus(the door) having paid for our sins we are gifted with eternal life. The body of flesh dies, as also the passing away of heaven and earth. Be certain God is your savior, and not you yourself. For all our self righteousness are as filthy rags before the work of Christ on the cross. The gates of the daughter of Zion is a place apart from the corrupt world, a pre-experience of heavenly delight, such as here before God's word, a blessing unlike anything the corrupt world has to offer, where sinful men can become sons of God, and thereby pleasing to him. All day, every day, God is worthy of praise.

    There is so much comment on Genesis in the past history pages, It's a shame no one Even goes and look at all that. :/

    Scroll down to the 1-100 links. When you get to 99, then another 50 pages appears. Like Wow! Chris has written amazing teachings.

    I'm not going to rewrite things I've already studied and posted.

    Tomorrow I'll be in Prayer Request. Have a great night expounding.

    Likely the Accuser of the Brethren sent that message. Demons can oppress people if they listen, get angry and react hastily.

    Believe what theBible says about you. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand. He will comfort you; but sometimes he convicts us too, about things we do. Listen to that calm Voice and not that voice that confuses or condemns.

    You may even ask the Holy Spirit to give you the gift of discerning spirits.

    If you forgive him, you release The Lord to go to work on him. That's how it works.

    You can even ask the Lord to bring new (Christian) friends into your life. He did it for me.

    Go read Matthew 5:11-12

  • GTMok - in Reply on Psalms 72
    Hi Sandra,

    The best possible way to have a better understanding about which day is the right one and why most people go to church on Sunday, is to go back to the book of Daniel. Understand the kingdoms of Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece, Rome and how the activities of the "little horn" that has a mouth and eyes and speaking blasphemy against the Most High.

    What is blasphemy? Mark 2:7 "Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?"

    The little horn according to Daniel 7:25 - "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time."

    According to Exodus 20, the 4 commandment "Remember to keep the seventh day holy..." Exodus 20:8-11. The commandment has not changed, even Paul solidifies the same in the new testament, "we establish the law" Romans 3:31.

    The little horn has usurped the prerogatives of God and in doing so he established his day, Sunday, as the day of his authority. The last day deception will be about the day of worship. Those who love God, & His law, will choose Saturday Sabbath as the day of His authority, but those who choose the devil's representative here on earth (the anti Christ) will choose Sunday sabbath (as they call it) as the day of his authority. It all boils down to in whom we rest (sabatismos), come what may. Even at the risk of losing our lives we trust the One who is able to resurrect us from death, Matthew 10:39
    Matthew 12: (red letters)

    43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

    44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

    45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

    Jesus was teaching this. Where it says spirits; these are the evil spirits; or Demons. The demon of fear brings

    tormenting demons along with him. A demon of Bondage captures people with addictions, like drugs, alcohol, sexual addictions like porn; the demon of Infirmity will wear a person down till they are very sick with all manner of diseases.

    There are many names for them. I find it much easier to identify the with what Jesus taught about FRUITS. Witchcraft, sorcery, murder, stealing. Sometimes FAMILIAR spirits follow families and inflict old family curses on them: like for women who cannot bear children. Curses can be lifted with study to get information, and then prayer.

    Rebellion is as the sin of Witchcraft. If your teenager is violent and profane: you know his fruit.

    The prayer of faith will heal the sick; bind and cast out the demons to go into outer darkness and dry hot places.

    Demons are invisible, but they can manifest frightening scary incidents. If you read horoscopes instead of the Bible "to get a word for the day", you invite occult demons into the house. Phone psychics, Quiga board games, etc. Get rid of all idols so God can bless you!

    That's why Jesus said to GARNISH you/your House. You must have Bible inside of you! If you can quote scriptures like the Son of can make demons leave. Put on the Armor that Jesus paid for with his Blood, and plead the Blood over the entire home.

    Ephesians 6.

    Good day Dan,

    Just to add to your comment, I also believe we aught to keep the seventh day holy, however when there is an opportunity to help someone in dire need on the Sabbath, we have to do so. After all, didn't the blind man end up believing in God for the good work Jesus did to him on the Sabbath (John 9)? Whatever ye do, do it to the glory of God, 1 Corinthians 10:31.

    At the end of the day we should be able to hear these words from our Redeemer, Matthew 25:31-40. Whether the good works were done on Sabbath, or any other day, for as long as the praise and worship of the beneficiaries are directed to God - that is all we can ever ask for.

    Matthew 25:

    When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

    32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

    35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

    36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

    37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

    38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

    39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

    40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    If you find error, you can go to the Contact Us link and let them look at it.

    Everybody in here may be using their own versions of the Bible. Such as NKJV, NIV, and others. You'll have to compare one to another. I've always used KJV because that is what I memorize.

    Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew. New Testament in Greek or Aramaic. Be happy that at great persecution, King James of England got the Bible translated so that regular people like us could read it themselves. Which is why he did it.

    The history before it was translated is very very humbling. People were tortured Or burned at stake for having pages of the Bible.

    I've said the above to show that no scientist can ever consider this other aspect of human beings. He may see it as an aberration in behaviour & that we are still essentially good people. The Bible, as you may know, tells us that we are the opposite: essentially bad but having good traits. However, if we are essentially good, then from where did these evil traits develop? I know what the Bible teaches about this, but how does one who believes in neither God nor the inception of evil, deal with such a distinct human nature of good & evil? Is it enough to say that's just how we are & go no further? Yet, we can have a clear conviction in how the worlds came together & the evolution of man, yet content with being uninformed or uninterested in this aspect. I would hope that the origin of this dual nature in man would be addressed by someone, since these are clearly not traits in our 'animal predecessors'.
