  • Nicole on Tobit 6
    I think as a non believer of the kjv , these are important to read because I know the kjv doesn't make sense and between these and the most books, I was able to find god again however when I read some comments from so called Christians, my stomach turns and I think it's a waste of time yet again.

    The holy spirit will lead you into all righteousness. A joy unspeakable . Thanks for reply. In Christ. FES
  • Fred scanlan on Nahum 1
    How clear is the words from u all. Like refreshing water that flows from his sanctuary. Your words are a reflection of his prophecy spoken by some of you a year ago. Now you are clean through the word I have spoken unto you.These words from Christ Himself. His glory realized through His word. Here is your strength in a time of need. Be not afraid ,there is no one like our God! Be not afraid ,go in peace in the knowledge that he is our salvation even unto life eternal."Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof"." But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you". He is our protector,from our enemies. He loves us!
  • Bibi russell on Mark 10:9
    someone living common-in-law and 2 children from the relationship and has not actually made marriage vows is it still considered what God has joined together.? Now is the woman free to leave her partner and go with another man? Is the new man breaking up what God put together?
  • Alex on Luke 17
    The Kingdom of God is gonna come from within us simply b/c Jesus is gona go forth and sow his precious seed in our hearts,The son of man is gonna come via a seed which is the WORD THAT NEW COVENANT ( THE BOOK ) in the right hand of the father. The contents of that book are LIVING WORDS which are the Seeds of God,My words are spirit and life like God is spirit n life. If ya can hear it the book was written with his own blood ,no man cd look on it,but the babes and sucklings that are gonna result from the heavenly seeds,th book,the Children of PROMISE that Are gonna be born in US,Thats y th new birth is so important.Unless the lord of sabboah had left us a seed etc.Being bornagain of an incorruptible seed, the Words of that book ( his breath etc ) Zech refers to him as our 1st born ,our only son.Smite the Shephard n th sheep will be scattered then i will turn my Hand to the LIL ONES ( our 1st born our only son ) which is th H.G. the Son of MAN MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD VIA TH WORDS O BOOK.

    Jesus is coming soon! He is Lord and God who will someday come to judge the living and the dead.
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    Jesse, please don't twist the Scripture to make it say what ya want it to say. Paul told Christian that he suffers not a woman to teach, but to be in silence. It is against God's law/order for a woman to speak in church. There is no other scripture changing that truth. So where in the Bible does it say that in the early church men sat on one side and women on the other? It doesn't and you have absolutely zero proof that it happened that way. That is a feministic view to twist the Word to make it say what they want it to say.
  • Carl - in Reply on Ezekiel 1
    Hi Luci,

    My heart goes out to you. I don't have any answers for you, but I feel with you. Relationships can be so difficult, especially within family, and when you have no idea why. It sounds like you only meant well, so I'm sorry it went the way it did. 1 Peter 2:20 is a real comfort: "For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God." When you suffer after doing well, and take it patiently, God notices and will give you His grace and power to carry on! I will pray for you and your family. He only wants the best for you!
  • Scott Marino - in Reply on John 5:4
    Hello Bob; This in depth studying of Biblical text is challenging. I am studying various aspects of context in this case. I am thinking that there was an event as described in verse four, and it was recorded. Why is it not recorded in earlier texts? Is a good question. Hopefully, the reason(s) are human involvement without satanic influence.
  • Charles Hallam - in Reply on Acts 22
    Bob, Yes sir, sure did. Deborah was used by the Lord when there were no stand up men left in Israel. An exception to God's Law order. But there are PLENTY of God fearing MEN left in the world today. But there are thousands of wicked women disobeying God preaching and teaching, when they ought not (if these women are saved at all).

    Timothy learned as a child from his mother and grandmother AT HOME, just like I did, At HOME.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Mishael, you too have experienced great sadness & loss, but the presence of the Lord has been very real & overwhelming to you. I'm sure that your ministry & testimony is so much stronger & precious to those brought to receive it, as from the Lord. I was interested in reading about what took place just prior to your Father's departure. When I lost my Mum in '69 to cancer, my Dad was with her in hospital; I wasn't there. But he related to me that she was in great pain in those final moments & had laboured breathing. He felt in his spirit that her end was very near, so he asked the Lord to spare her more pain & to take her to Himself. She closed her eyes at that very moment & entered into Christ's Presence. Yes, we all grieve when we lose someone so precious, but as believers, we experience something that no one else does: at the moment when our time on Earth is done, all of Heaven is involved in the ushering away of the loved one & resultant healing to those left behind. Psalms 116:15.
  • Fern on Psalms 27
    Thanks, reading these words always gives me inspiration and hope.
  • Alex on Matthew 24:23
    IMO just me. This great abomination of Desolation is modern day Christianity,All the churches are desolate even the big mega churches are desolate Not a sign of Christ Jesus. And Jesus said it was gonna be a Time of darkness when no man can work.The days are coming when the bridegroom will be taken away then shall you fast in those days,days are plural 2 days 2000 yrs no Christ Jesus but we look for him to come again soon but don't look for him in th Churches,look for him to come within you via a birth Thats y he always refers to himself as the SON OF MAN, 27 TIMES THE PROPHETS SAW THE WORLD IN TRAVAIL N BIRTH PAINS we are gonna birth a baby Christ within our hearts and minds that Child is the H.G. TH CHILD of PROMISE,I will give them a new heart and a new spirit. He wants to be BORN in US sinners He is truly th SON OF MAN, thats y th sower wants to sow his precious seed in our hearts,The kingdom of God is gonna be BORN in US,The most hi GOD does not dwell in temples made with hands.
  • Lady A on Psalms 31
    GOD is the strength of my life, GOD is GREAT and greatly to be praised....

    Help me Father in the name of Jesus Christ to do better on this journey of life

    I am walking on the right path according to your words, sometimes I don't think about what I am thinking about...

    This word is good....
  • Patty Tozi on Matthew 4
    In these days who do we turn to? Mankind or our Father in Heaven. Who died and suffered for all our sins in this evil world?

    Jesus is coming back soon, so His Father can have our Glory of Creation He gave us long ago. But Satan took us and put thoughts in our mind turning alot of us away from the Love we could of had. Is it no wonder thru my trials l now turn away from man. Alone l talk to my God. In my heart l here His replies. I write what l know to help others. I wish years past l had not stayed in this world of evilness. I learned the hard way to get to my Father now. Am so Protected by Him. Loved by His Strength. Helping the less fortunate and seeing through the evilness the enemy put in them- I try to help. But most of the times mankind does not know that the heart if completely open to the Word of God, could stand as a rock and not move when the storm's hit. For they could become a mighty warrior for the kingdom of God.....

    As I understand it, the seals are still PRE-Tribulational, is that right? The corona/crown being the first seal seems extremely plausible.
  • Mild Bill on Psalms 22
    Yesterday in Bible study I mentioned the rejection of Christ as he spoke in ancient Israel.Today I read this psalm and see,if in only some small part,the depth of hurt to him,in the midst of agonizing physical pain.And since this psalm predates his time here on Earth,he already knew,if only in word,what he would face,yet he gave himself for our souls.A love beyond degree.I thank God to be of the seed and tell forth what he has done.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Hi Patsy, I think some people see because they have eyes to read and a mind to think for themselves. To ask questions, and never to believe those who put themselves above us in having access to some truth based on our stopping to see and ask questions and not thinking for ourselves.
  • Bigbigbetty on Psalms 35
    i love this chapter so much, especially the part about i will rejoice in his salvation. gives me peace, because all the religious gunk goes away when i think of that.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 4
    Thanks Fred for that great & timely encouragement.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Thank you too Pam, for writing. I appreciate your kind words & I do heavily rely on the Lord to help me say/write what is needed. He is able to carry you through anything you may face. Remembering that the trying of your faith worketh patience (Js 1:2-5). The Lord bless, keep & sustain you each day.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 1
    Helena, Jesse has written correctly that these signs (vv 17,18), would be a necessary part for establishing the new Church & witness to the heathen around them. So even though the purpose of signs has generally ended, we cannot quench the work of the Spirit (the One Who gave Power & fulfilment to those signs). I say this guardedly, as I have evidence of mighty works of the Spirit when the situation required it. In the West, we don't see much evidence of demonic possession, maybe demonic oppression - there is a difference. In lands where there is idolatry & evil practices, we have seen demonic powers at work. In one instance, at a Bible Study in Pakistan, as I shared, a woman began to shake violently. It wasn't about anything I was speaking about, but, because the Holy Word of God was being read, that which possessed her was being agitated. A Pakistani brother then proceeded to cast out that foul spirit & she was released & was joyful again. How powerful is God's Word: our Sword.
  • Jon - in Reply on Genesis 1
    God had made Adam and Eve with perfect consciousness and free will. God commanded them not to eat the fruit of the tree and when they eat, they shall surely die. But eating the fruit of the tree is purely Eve's and Adam's choice.

    Even though Satan lied and deceived them, they have a choice to make and they knew the God how powerful and Holy he is. They didn't recall the commandment given by God but they went after their own will.

    That's the reason God have punished Adam and Eve too.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 6:2
    Yes Lynn, it should be "feet" in the descriptions of the Seraphims. Maybe, it was a typo that was not properly proof-read before going to print. Also, (and I know you've not asked this), be wary of translations that are not faithful to the original manuscripts. I'm not aware of the translation you mentioned, but we do know that many translations have altered words or even omitted words to suit their whims & fancies. You would be on the right path with the King James Version (translated from faithful manuscripts), though if reading it becomes difficult, then the New King James or New American Standard Bible are preferable to the others. As well, if you don't understand something you read and if you are a believer in Christ, then His Spirit will help you to understand. Also, you can write here & someone will guide you.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 4
    Donovan, the meaning of 'generation' is important here. As we know, this word has been used throughout Scripture, but most today only understand it to apply to forty years. However, the Greek word 'genea' also allows for 'family, race, age'. Though the nation of Israel being (re) formed in May 1948 is significant to end time prophecy, the Lord's reference in Matthew 24:34 to generation can only be applied to 'this age' = those alive prior to the closing of this age of unbridled sin. Jesus took his disciples to the Mt. of Olives & described the destruction of the Temple. His disciples asked (v3), when all this would happen. So Jesus describes what we refer to as the Great Tribulation, that would not only affect Israel severely, but would impact all people all over the world. Jesus doesn't give a date (Matthew 24:36) as this fact was known only to the Father. This could mean that Jesus, in his humanity, was not aware of it, or that the Godhead kept it hidden from us so we always remain ready.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Debra, there are references to Church of Christ (Romans 16:16, Ephesians 3:21), but as a matter of fact, there are far more references to the 'Church of God' in the NT. I have seen in my travels: Grace Church, Church of Hope, Abba Church, Eternity Church, Heart of the City Church, plus many more; then there is Church of Jesus Christ (of the Latter Day Saints). Which is the true Church? Certainly not the 'latter'. Any church that claims to be the true Church of Christ or of God, will most likely have some cultish element within & we need to be aware. I've been to a Church of Christ & found them to be well founded on God's Word, so your meeting with a couple of them, appears to show a Church out of the mainstream C of C. Jesus Christ's Church is His Body; He is the Head (the Cornerstone) Ephesians 2:19-22, 1 Peter 2:4-10, etc. We are His Body (Ephesians 4:15,16; Romans 12:4,5) & the Body's existence depends on the Living Christ & His Living Word. So please don't be troubled or deceived by their beliefs.
  • Ashley - in Reply on Mark 4
    Does the thorns have to do with backsliding you suppose?
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 14
    That's a great Truth, Cathryn; the Holy Spirit can only be the One to make His Word meaningful & personal to our lives. Yet, God has blessed His Church with Spiritual Gifts (1 Corinthians 12) for her teaching & building up. He expects that those gifted with a prophetic Word or teaching it in Wisdom, will fulfil their calling joyfully & as such are answerable to the Lord (Hebrews 13:17, speaks of those in leadership, which would involve teaching/counselling). So, Revelation really isn't a difficult Book, if we understand that much imagery is used (that which apostle John could hardly explain either) & timelines too, are cloudy. To me what would be more important in this instance, is that I know that the one who teaches from the Word, is indeed a man of God, gifted to teach & does so guardedly when the meaning or wording is unclear. There are many out there who will always seek to distort the Truth (Satan's ploy), & many believers fall into damnable heresies (2 Peter 2:1), but the Spirit will reveal.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Ephesians 3
    Debra Miller - your concerns are well founded. Per those pastors of the C of C then I suppose all the people who died before they were created in the 1800's were never saved. You will also find the Seventh Day Adventists and the Jehovah's Witnesses had roots in the Millerite movement. Individuals inside these groups may be very faithful to Christ, but my experience with any large organization is not positive. Personally I believe small home churches are the future of the true church of the Lord.

    Jesus said: Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 4
    Donovan - unless the United Nations, is the Lord, it was they who gathered and created the Israeli state in 1948. I think this is a counterfeit creation. Lucis trust publications (used to be Lucifer trust) is a printing arm of the UN.

    Lucis trust about: History "The Lucis Trust was established by Alice and Foster Bailey as a vehicle to foster recognition of the universal spiritual principles"...."A publishing company, initially named Lucifer Publishing Company"

    Support of the United Nations: "The Lucis Trust has Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC) and World Goodwill is recognized by the Department of Public Information at the United Nations as a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO)"
