  • Garyns on Revelation 19:12
    I present what was learned in the Spirit, some years ago. That John is recounting a certain history, associated with the Lord, and being cryptic about that, in particular, though details are suggested in the reading of the revelation of our Lord shared with him, over the course of dictating the writing of the book we hold so dearly, mysterious as it is. Certain elements of this passage stand out for me.

    It is an angel of the Lord who is presenting, at least the material of the above passage, both contextually (verses 09-15) and in the text itself, under study. But all is prefaced by the call, first, in verse 09: "Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb." That is always an immanent invitation, because we do not know the time of that scheduled event. But its subject is particularly poignant in our day, in our time, for the Lamb of God of the First Century is the same one in the Twenty-First Century.

    Aside from the revelation of God in the preserved New Testament, how shall we know who he is? Especially, drawing from the information furnished us in the passage, but particularly in the verse under study (v. 12), and most important to us now, ". . . he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself." What does that mean, of the Lamb of God? And written? Is it so in the New Testament? Then we would know it. But it is not 'written' there.

    There is one place only where such a 'writing' would be found. His name there is not commented on by anyone in possession of knowledge gleaned from the reading of that book, but it is there, and it is derived from the question that is asked any and all of us: who is the man identified by another John, who baptized Jesus--by the Baptist himself who said, "Behold the Lamb of God who taketh away the sin of the world," and which is now found written in flesh and blood in and on a mysterious book or scroll, by which only they of faith can answer?

    Be wise, and truthful.

  • Luke Beaver - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    The law and the prophets is a reference to what we now call the Old Testament scriptures which contain the law of Moses and the Prophetic writings such as Jeremiah ect.
  • For Anna on Psalms 70
    Thank You Jesus for leading her out. By Your grace. For Your glory. Alleluia.

    Brothers and Sisters, thank Him too. For the testimonies to come. Amen.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Luke 12
    If you have put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and believe that God has raised him from the dead, you are already baptized in the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11; Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16; Acts 11:15-17; 1 Corinthians 12:3 and 12:13; 1 John 5:1). All of 1 Corinthians chapter 12 is instructive in the working of the Spirit in Christ's body, the Church.

    In John 14:16-18 and in John chapter 16, Jesus promises the Comforter will be sent to dwell with and in his disciples after he returns to the Father. The mission of the Comforter is to reprove the world of sin, righteousness and judgement. As the Spirit of truth, he guides Jesus' followers in all truth, not promoting himself, but glorifying Jesus Christ and the things of Christ.

    Romans chapter 8 teaches us about walking in the Spirit after we've learned the hard lesson of our weakness in the flesh as found in Romans 7.

    The book of Colossians and 2 Peter chapter 1 are a couple of fine prescriptions for aligning yourself to spiritual living.
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Samuel 2
    Hi Elisabeth,

    I agree there is great deception and I agree the Bible is truth and accurate and I've read the whole Bible and have never read anywhere where it says the earth is flat. I read the opposite though, that the Earth is a circle. I interpret this as a sphere and this can easily be tested and confirmed with GPS, math, going high altitude and seeing the curvature yourself, or flying around the world. Have you ever flown transcontinental? All you have to do is buy a plane ticket to a destination on the opposite side of the earth as you and when you get there, make sure your return flight continues the same direction you want to go and you will return to where you started. So, you can fly the same direction and end up where you started. Obviously if the earth was not a globe this would not happen, and obviously you'd see an 'edge', but no, pilots and business people who fly millions of miles for work would have noticed such a thing by now if it existed.

    Psalms 61:2 does not use the word 'corners', it says end of the earth. To me this means the entire earth. 'End' is figurative. You could say the Earth 'ends' at the sky or where there is no more land, but the Bible has figurative language. Look at the rest of the same verse: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. If you interpret this literally, you could claim that you need to start rock hunting as if you're literally searching for a rock and that rock is higher than you, so it must be above your head- maybe even floating, because if it has a base then at least part of it would not be above you. But which way is up? What if you're upside down, do you still look for a rock above or below? Do you see what I mean by figurative vs. literal? End of earth is simply a phrase meaning the entire earth. For example, communion, when Jesus says eat my body and blood, do you think we're supposed to be vampires and literally eat him? No.

    What Bible verses do you believe support a flat earth?
  • Mishael on the spirit of Heaviness on Psalms 70
    Heaviness is actually a demon. They're trying to keep you immobile. In the Lords Prayer it says: "deliver us from evil". Oftentimes, heaviness starts out as a little care or concern. What begins as a small burden grows and grows. Then, you start taking on responsibilities that aren't yours. You start thinking that you have to keep everyone around you happy, or you start worrying about things in the future. All of this piled on becomes very heavy on your heart and mind.

    The Bible says that heaviness is actually a spirit. The goal of heaviness is to distract you and get you off track. Heaviness tries to keep your head down so that you can't even look up to the heavens-the place from where your help comes. Heaviness tries to wear you out and take the place of God's spirit, but do you know what chases that spirit of heaviness away? Praise and thanksgiving. Scripture says that God inhabits the praises of His people. He literally comes into our praise and works! When you start praising, God shows up in your midst and every negative spirit has to flee!

    If you have heaviness on you today, if you feel trapped, overwhelmed, discouraged, frustrated or anxious, there is only one thing you need to do, and that is to open your mouth and praise Almighty God! Even if it's difficult, even if you don't feel like it, just open your mouth and begin to declare His goodness. Sometimes we have to stir ourselves up in the things of God. Sometimes we have to get our flesh to obey the Word of God so we can see the breakthrough in the supernatural realm.

    Today, put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3). Set your heart and mind on the Father. Instead of focusing on your problems, focus on your God. Don't let worry get you stuck, but let praise get you through! Enter His gates with thanksgiving, shake off heaviness and embrace the peace, joy and victory God has prepared for you!

  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 70
    The Holy Spirit is calling you big time, to pray and intercede on these issues.

    He's going to anoint your prayers. Just be obedient.

    The pain you feel is sort of like giving birth to what God wills for this burden. You don't need fancy speech.

    Praise His Holy name.
  • Jon on Revelation 1
    How do I know if I'm blessed with the holy spirit I was recently born again and I'm not sure ?
  • Elizabeth F McVeigh - in Reply on 1 Samuel 2
    I have found there is deception in every area of man's knowledge. The Bible is the only truth. I believe the scriptures say the earth is flat. I am interested to know how you interpret the earth having corners and yet being a circle.
  • Munyaradzi Arota on Psalms 23:1
    Psalms 23:1 comment

    1;The Lord is my shepherd; there are two types of shepherds, (hireling and a good shepherd)

    A hireling is the shepherd that takes care of the sheep only for money yet the good shepherd does it whole hearted, Jesus Christ is the good shepherd who takes good care of the sheep (believers in Christ both Jews and Gentiles) A hireling are pastors that are preaching for money and without money they don't preach.

  • Mishael on Goliath size faith - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    It may be that autism is a palsy and easily cured with the prayers of Faith.

    And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing ALL MANNER of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

    And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the PALSY; and he healed them.

    If our Faith is small concerning some illnesses; it's hard for us to trust Jesus. People have to go through the New Testament and feed their Faith just to receive a miracle. What the doctors can't do, Jesus wants to and can. If the Church worldwide got radical against autism...wouldn't that be a testimony to Jesus?

    We don't lay down and take it. My nephew has it; I've been praying for him; he's in the service now becoming a Seal.

    Corporate prayer at your church or one that is tough on demon oppression, can unite their corporate faith and cast that demon of autism out! When Jesus gets involved, good things can happen.

    Most important; be careful of your verbal conversations of doubting faith. Don't be Doubting Thomas. Pray and get all the faithless speech DELETED off the book. Your confessions should be full of hope and faith.

    Conversation = Faith

    It takes determination based on faith scripture. Pump it up and then see what Jesus does. What Satan meant for evil: to curse a life...will be turned to good; to give GLORY to Jesus (who still heals). On Sunday too :)

    Remember! Corporate Prayer.

    There are Christians beside you in church that look like Goliath in the faith department. Call up the old ladies too. We're talking about a kids life. God's got His people....

    Go listen to 'Sunday's on the Way' by Carman, on youtube.
  • Mishael on Angels Unaware - in Reply on Revelation 18
    As a street minister when I was younger, I bought McDonalds coupon booklets (for food) and gave them to old ladies or alcoholics who forget to eat food. I'd listen to their stories and tell them of a day when there would be no more sadness or tears; about a Savior who knows them personally.

    Jesus said to us: when did you see Me, hungry and thirsty, sad and alone, in prison (real or in my mind), In need of clothing etc.

    We can't help all of them, but I promise you the Holy Spirit will lead you to the right ones!

    Also, it's possible to meet angels unaware out there too. I saw a man walking with bad feet and broke driving laws to circle back, pick him up and take him to get brand new shoes and socks. It was dark & raining. I didn't find him. I looked everywhere.

    8 months later at the doctors office, I was telling the doctor about bad feet stories. His eyes were all big...he told me he picked that man up that night. He did surgery on his feet for free. Bought him good shoes and took him back to his neighborhood.

    Stuff like that happens because Jesus knows everybody!
  • Mike on Genesis 1:2
    The earth "became" (Hebrew: hayah) without form and void...that is, it became without the form of God's righteousness and void of the knowledge of God as all are not righteous and have turned away out of the Way of righteousness and none understand:

    Romans 3:10-12 KJV

    (10) As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

    (11) There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

    (12) They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

    Darkness was upon the face of the deep as mankind's foolish heart (all together) had become darkened:

    Romans 1:20-22 KJV

    (20) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    (21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters....holy men of God speak (waters = tongues, languages, etc) as they are moved by the Holy Spirit.

    2 Peter 1:20-21 KJV

    (20) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    (21) For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
  • Joan on Acts 5
    The story of Ananias and Saphira has always upset me, every time I read it. It seems to me that what they did was a very human thing, and certainly it was a sin; but the other people were giving everything they had, so it would have been embarrassing to admit that this was only a part of the sale price that they were bringing. It seems to me like a very harsh punishment. I'm crying!
  • Hogan - in Reply on Song of Solomon 1
    This is a beautiful testimony and prophecy of Christ's love for his people. "Virgins" are considered (the church) or people in Christ. See Matthew 25:1-13. Verse 2 and 3 proclaims Christ's love and having a relationship with Christ is health and healing to us wholly and is better than wine! Verse 4 is expressed being drawn nearer to Christ, through His "love invitation" and acceptance.Those who receives his invitation and love will run after him and will be glad and rejoice in him, and will remember his love more than wine: the upright love him.
  • Monique Manning-Jones on Isaiah 58 on Isaiah 58
    When I was a little girl, Bible study instilled in me that JESUS is a personal Saviour. Unfortunately, through life, my spirituality faltered on a dismal failure from being disobedient. But one day, when I was truly crying out for light in my darkness, the HOLY SPIRIT guided me to Isaiah 58. In that reading, comfort was administered with a deeper understanding of the relationship I could have with my FATHER. It is indeed a one-on-one, personal relationship made possible by the suffering and great sacrifice of JESUS CHRIST.



    I understand verses 1-5, simply as redirection from GOD through Isaiah to stop our public and ceremonial fasting, which misses the point altogether of personally and meaningfully communicating our love to our FATHER.

    GOD speaks to the hearts of all who are seeking HIM in Verses 6-8. HE makes plain what HE truly wants from HIS children -to love HIM and to love our neighbors - which of course is the precursor to the two great commandments of HIS only begotten SON, JESUS. (Matthew 22:36-40)"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.")

    In Verses 9-12, GOD clarifies that to fill our lives with loving and giving to others, is loving HIM - and in return, HE rewards us breathtakingly and powerfully.

    But as a humbled child of GOD, it is in verses 13-14, that GOD reveals to me the sacred urgency of keeping the 4th commandment, "Remember the SABBATH DAY and keep it HOLY." HE tenders to my spirit how very much it means to HIM personally when I accept in my heart the sanctity of HIS (our Creator's) chosen day of rest.

    For obeying HIM out of love and gratefulness, not fear, the blessings upon blessings, I receive from the vastness of HIS power, grace and mercy, empower me in ways mere words cannot express.
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    I am finish my research on autism of course and Also have a few health problems And poor eyesight and usually don't comment however I will answer briefly but to do justice to your question, it would take maybe two or three pages however I will answer like this. First of all, if these things affect the child to cause autism, or if anything else affects the child to cause all autism they must be a mechanism of action, aka, Mode of Action aka Mode of Development. Briefly, I thought that that Mode was hallucinations as I had hallucinated fpr several days when i was drugged when i was about 30; but in spite of the fact that any of the senses can be hallucinated' no one beloved it; and they said I would have to do research ti prove it. How do you do research to prove the obvious? Even Murphy's Law says that if a thing can happen; it will and when it rains, it will pour. The fact is however i=s that no one has even seen an infant or baby hallucinate...... I wonder why?

    So, I did about 15 years of research; etc.

    Now to answer your question, I have heard of young children having seizures after the immunization shot/ not sure which one? Do i think these things that u refer to cause Autism. Not in all cases for sure; but some maybe. So i don't go there although I do not disagree with you or any of the other anti vaccine people. I do know that Immunization works but I do not know if all those shots in young children are necessary. I do know that most cases are due to an atypical stimulation where just one of the senses are affected; and that plays over and over repetitiously and that always leads to fear development, hallucination and sudden Fight or flight.

    I do not think anyone followed or accepted my research from the beginning, and there was always new research; but these things you referred to, were commented on several times but I have never done any research in that regard. My research was to find the cause and I did that in ever which way,
  • Sunday Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 91:1
    "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty". He who dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High. God has a secret place for His own [Psalms 27:5, 31:20], and it is a Place to Live in. Those who dwell there abide under the shadow of the Almighty, knowing His Protection, Comfort and Care. Every Child of God looks towards, the inner Sanctuary and the Mercy-Seat, yet all do not dwell in the Most Holy place, they run to it at times, and enjoy occasional approaches, but they do not habitually reside in the mysterious Presence.
  • Carl Christian on Psalms 46:10
    EL is God the Father Elohim is the Trinity which is correct for Psalms 46:10?
  • Rev J Rodney Quesenberry on Proverbs 12
    Verse 2 says that a good man obtaineth favor of the Lord. Our God and our Father gives favor to those who are good. Obtaineth in the KJV means to get it presently. Any word in the Bible that adds "eth" on a word means in the present, right now. A good person right now, gets His favor right now. Does He favor some over others? Can He show favor to some and not others without being a respector of persons, which He is not? Absolutely. He is God. He elevates His in life. Who are those that are good and understanding our goodness or righteousness is filthy rags? It's the one who has been born again by His Spirit through what Jesus His Son our Savior and Sanctifier has done at Calvary and the beating before the cross. We obtain favor constantly and daily through Jesus that we acknowledge and follow and lives through our life. He elevates that person in all of their life and what relates to them in life. Hallelujah

    You can't go through life, being afraid to touch this, and not touch that! so many people are so afraid! so many so called christians are like, too afraid to , like, sit down or just sit next to a homeless person, because they might get a little dirty! baby, you can go on facebook or twitter, or what have you...doesn't mean you have to do what everybody else is doing. you need to drop the self-righteous-attitude ya got going there, and just to up your sleeves there....and prepare to get your hands dirty, or god cant use you my friend! ok!
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Oh! i know! the bible says, or better yet god said..........question is god is talking, are ya listening? jesus savior said: he that has ears to hear, let him (her) hear!
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Be sure to tell others outside your circle....like our lord & savior said: go into all the world and preach " the gospel" sometimes, that might mean sitting down with a bag lady whos sitting in a mcdonalds counting nickles and pennies just trying to get enough for a hamburger or maybe just a cup of coffee!
  • Barry L - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Hmmm! small mistake! what some sins? i don't think our father in heaven considers any sin a small mistake! when i hear s comment like that, i'm like i dont think so! all sin is an abomination to god! you, my friend, can cut it & slice it anyway you want to...bible says: the wrath of god is revealed from heaven agaiinst all the ungodliness of men, just look in the book of romans. the book of romans...sounds like god is not too haply with sin according to the apostle paul if you wanna get technical about it!
  • Peter on Genesis 1:25
    I enjoy all of the discussions and comments that I read; however, I am only interested in some things at this particular time of my life; and i can research them on the internet over time; but I also want Christian views and then also I thought that over time slowly I would enjoy my remaining years reading comments and slowly learning other favourite things as i was familiar a little bit with when i was a child. Once a man, twice a child; and i have person interest in these things as for example I love the 10 commandments but the problem is i get things mixed up a little; and i don't even know the first one and the most i can find is 9. So, That is my next priority and i was wondering if someone could tell me the first commandments; Is it just Thou shall have no other God before me. or do it continue as I think it do. What is the overall Christian view; and if it is one; what would the tenth one be?
