  • Brant on Proverbs 6:19
    The verse you listed but from many different bibles and beliefs did not all have the word "That" in it. This verse, in all the bibles listed quite simply says. " Dont tell lies to your brothers in order to cause fighting among them." We all know by the time we are in grade school that lying and gossiping is not a good thing. It spreads hate. And hate brings violence like bullying which we discourage greatly in our schools and always feel bad for the person being bullied as well as grateful if it is not our kids that are targeted by bullies. This includes cyber bullying.Which is deliberately trying to hurt someone by telling lies, spreading gossip, name calling etc.

    and doing it with an audience which makes it a million times worse. Theres NEVER ANY GOOD REASON FOR ANYONE TO SPREAD LIES TO CAUSE HATE ANGER, VIOLENCE & BULLYING ." That's what God is saying. Being a Christian who ACTUALLY tries to always follow the rules of God & the bible I like to think about how Jesus would handle it. Could you see Jesus sitting on a laptop on social media typing out to the entire world lies or calling people names, delibertly bullying others. Do you see Jesus cheering anyone on that would do such a thing. I think not. Jesus had a crown of thorns pushed down upon his skull and nails hammered into his hands and feet & hung on a cross in the sweltering heat as people below called him names and heckled him. Can you imagine the incredable amount of physical as well as emotional pain he must have felt? Did jesus swear back at them? Did he call them names? True Christian's living a true existence according to Gods law should remember this next time they think it's ok to send discord about anyone even politicians through their face book messenger. Someday you will be judged. Not by Trump, but by our Powerful God who made each & every one of us in the entire universe. God Bless America and God Bless our World.

    I don't know. But I would think that God would give them every possible chance. It will be very tempting not to take the mark knowing that you could'nt buy or sell without it. You would starve to death.
  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 36:11
    Salvation is not given until people are judged and that doesn't happen until after Jesus comes. People assume they're saved as if they now can enjoy sin as much as they want with no consequence despite verses like Romans 14:12. Secondly, some people falsely assume they no longer have freewill to sin after becoming a Christian, despite all the other verses saying you can sin. Paul was a Christian and deeply struggled with his 'flesh' tempting him to sin and wrote about that in depth. There is no evidence that says your freewill to sin is stripped away. Even angels in heaven could sin, such as satan, so of course a Christian still has the ability to sin, but is supposed to actually try hard to have self control and NOT SIN. People try hard to blame others and to avoid accountability for their own actions, but no, no one forces them to sin, but themselves and their own bad choices. Those who believe Christians cannot sin are basically calling Jesus a liar. Jesus spent so much time warning his followers (Christians) to avoid sin, and shared many parables, and kept challenging them. John 14:15, Hebrews 10:26, Matthew 12:31-32. The once saved- always saved belief is a very predictable argument, but is debunked by the Bible itself if someone were to read it carefully and pray to God and ask for the heart to know the truth. Satan loves to deceive Christians into believing they have a get out of jail free card that entitles them to live in the world and enjoy unlimited sin with no consequence and of course that has the devil's signature all over it.

  • What39s Next in Heaven - in Reply on Revelation 16
    If you believe and do what is in John Chapter 3. Then, YOU MUST follow Jesus Christ.

    If we plan on going to heaven, we first need to learn about WHO we are following. We're going to be living with Him. It makes sense to fully investigate. We do that by reading the Gospel books: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. See what Jesus says, what he does;

    What he likes, loves, mercy, justice, good will towards simple people like you and me.

    Dislikes: hypocrites, Nicolaitans like Pharisees that are soft on sin and enforce obedience to their rules, not Gods.

    We have to read the Bible which means, every day. Pray and ask Him to bless your food and all that concerns you. Learn to become sensitive to times when satan is sniffing around for ways to tempt you. Jesus told him "get thee behind me! You shall not tempt the Lord your God!"

    Satan is going to hell, so let's steer clear of him.

    Jesus is The Way, the Truth and the Life. He's greater and bigger than anything the Worldly world or Satan has to throw at us.

    Don't let Nicolaitans tie you down or challenge YOUR faith in Jesus. If you follow what is in the Bible you will always be on the narrow path to victory and eternal life. Plus you receive the Holy Spirit and He will teach you all mysteries if you ask Him. If you get sick or your car breaks down on the freeway, you can ask for angelic assistance to keep you safe.

    Ok I'm kinda hoping for a bowling alley but I'll settle for the Tree of Life. Can't wait to get to Heaven and meet some of the people in Hebrews chapter 11.

    Like it or not; this world that everyone is trying to save, is going to be remodeled to remove everything BAD that mankind did to it. Clean air, crystal clear water, No GMO's, no crime. Jesus is the Light of Heaven.

    Everything I just said is in the Bible. (Except the bowling alley).

    We are all followers of Jesus..so let's learn NOW, to whom we belong to and what's next? It's going to be good.

  • Stanjett - in Reply on Psalms 36:11
    Some believe you can lose your salvation. Others believe you can't. Did Jesus lie when He said that those that believe in me shall not die but have everlasting life? No. If a person keeps sinning after they are saved, They was not true when the y said they accepted Christ. Satan is not strong enough to take your salvation from you.
  • EJL - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Hi Linda,

    Genesis 6:2, 4, Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, Psalms 29:1, 89:6, Daniel 3:25) refer to the expression "sons of God." I believe that this is the Hebrew idiom referring to angels. It is a figure of speech.

    I believe that the sons of God left heaven, came down to earth (Jude 1:6), and took to wife all of whom they chose from the daughters of Adam. The children of these marriages were the giants. The giants were there on earth before the flood, and "also after that" (Genesis 6:4), meaning that they did indeed survive the flood, and the giants are mentioned throughout the Bible.

    Noah is the representative at this time period for the seed line that will bring forth the Messiah.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Proverbs 20
    Yes. I call God, God. He knows who I'm talking about. In one place He saying I AM. Should we call Him I AM. You can and you would not be wrong. I call Him God, am I wrong? I don't think so.
  • Chris - in Reply on Amos 5:26
    Les, I agree with you wholeheartedly. Had Israel recognized Jesus as their Messiah, according to the prophecies that went before Him, then they would not be in this spiritual darkness they're in, clinging onto the old commandments of God plus their own added righteousness, to be acceptable to God. They expected a conquering Messiah that would save them from the Roman oppression, but they missed recognizing the Lord of Glory Who came to save them from sin's penalty. They still wait for him, but how they shall weep when they see the One Whom they pierced (Revelation 1:7) coming in His Glory & Power.

    But for those who have come out of Judaism & turned to Christ, how it must bring joy to the Lord's Heart to see their response. And also for each one of us 'gentiles' "who having not seen yet have believed" (John 20:29).
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    Just wondering how you posted this if you don't have internet? Never mind, it don't matter. Tell your kid that the rapture is like magic but not magic. It will be like one second you are here, doing what ever you are doing and then, "Poof.", you are in paradise.
  • DOCTRINE OF THE NICOLAITANS - in Reply on Psalms 36:11
    It means return to your first love when you First met Jesus. The scripture is in Revelation 2:4

    Just compare your life today to those first days when you asked Jesus to come in your heart. You read your Bible. You asked the Holy Spirit to help you understand what you have read. He's your Teacher, and the Spirit of Jesus; your Comforter; your Convictor when you make mistakes, your Helper. He's here for you, now.

    Pray this prayer to return to your first Love:

    Lord, after what I've read today, I don't want to allow any spirit of compromise in my life! I now understand that the doctrine of the Nicolaitans is compromise with the world. Lord, I don't want to live with one foot in the church and another foot in the world. I want to break free completely from the world and its influence so I can give myself completely to Your cause! I want to be holy, to live in a way that pleases You, and to experience Your power in my life. Today I am renewing my commitment to You all over again! I turn from the world, and I am running to You!

    I pray this in Jesus' Name!

    Attend a full Gospel Church that teaches the same Gospel of Jesus Christ that you read in your Bible. Anything preached to you from a pulpit should be verified BY YOU in your Bible. Not a SOFT on sin Church. Revelation speaks of the Doctrine of the "Nicolaitans." Google that word. We need to know what it means (compromise).

    Prophesy from the Bible teaches us in last days: the Falling Away of the Church; also Apostacy in the Church.

    The temptation is to fall away and Follow the world, instead of Jesus Christ. The pull for us to do that is powerful. Who is the Tempter? Satan!

    If you will study these things and not be a seeker of quick, easy, painless Christian belief, you will know more than most people.

    Nicolaitans are domineering; hard on obedience and light on sin. Don't fall into that trap. JESUS said he HATED the doctrine of them.

    Follow what Jesus says in the Bible.

  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 12
    David, are your comments directed to me? If so, they seem inconsistent to what I wrote earlier. Even leaving aside the matter about Lucifer, the Babylonian king & Prince of Tyrus, I'm not sure where you got the idea that I intimated that Christ's sacrifice was no better than the Jewish sacrifices of old. Of course, if you believe that Christ's sacrifice has now made all those who call upon Him, sinless, then that of course is a serious matter.

    The difference between the old sacrifices & the sacrifice of Jesus is that the old sacrifices were temporary, limited & served only to alert Israel to their sin & need for restitution. Christ provided the 'better' Sacrifice because it came out of God's Love sending forth His Word as a Man to be our substitution & to bear our penalty: being therefore Perfect, there was no further need for subsequent offerings & it was the only one that permanently averted God's Wrath from the sinner.

    You wrote, "God will not buy your saved sinner excuse to remain a sinner". I'm unsure where you got this idea from as I never spoke of a saved sinner excusing himself to commit sin. Yes, there are some who might hold to this belief, but it's from Hell - no sinner saved by God's immeasurable Grace to them, would ever desire or contemplate unrestrained sinful behaviour as his 'free right' through Christ.

    So maybe your comments were actually directed to my comment, "we're not required to be 'sinless to enter Heaven'". We are required to be forgiven, born again & Spirit-indwelt so as to have the Seal of God in us for entrance into Heaven, but not to be sinless. Can anyone ever say that he/she is sinless now, given the reality of our earthly existence & many follies? Would all the exhortation from the apostles & preachers today for us to turn away from the "sins that so easily beset us" all be wasted effort if the 'sinless' believer could never be drawn into sin? But maybe, I have misunderstood you in this matter, for which I apologize.

    I believe its the reason why men would what to wear womens clothes or why women would wear mens clothes. Being gay is one reason which is wrong. My mother wore overalls working on the farm. Dresses would not work, working in the fields. .
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi David,

    I'm not sure where you get your information, because it doesn't seem to be from the Bible. Grace doesn't mean it erases sin, like it never happened. Grace is forgiveness of sin. Forgiveness is different than something that never happened. People who sin are forgiven if they are genuinely Christians who follow Christ. It sounds like you're claiming that Christians have to be perfect and without sin to enter heaven? If that is your belief, Jesus already said no one is without sin Romans 3:10. So, are you calling Jesus a liar? You also seemed to question why Jesus died on the cross. Jesus already explained exactly why he died on the cross- it's black and white in the Bible. So, the following statements from you are false:

    >So let's be clear, if you are sinning still, you are not saved. You will not go to Heaven if you die in sin.

    There is a difference from a Christian who tries their best to follow Christ but still sins (grace) because they have temptations of the flesh (just like Paul did), and someone who claims to be a Christian, but is not interested in following Christ, but desires to enjoy sin as much as possible because Satan told him he was saved and doesn't have to change (not grace).
  • Signs Before the Rapture Caught Up - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    I've found good Bibles at Goodwill or Walmart. Try to get a King James Version or a NIV or NKJV.

    The world is experiencing many of the SIGNS mentioned in Matthew 24 and Luke 21. Fires, earthquakes, economy collapse, riots and wars; pandemics. You have a wise child.

    Time of the end

    Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

    Luke 21:20 When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies (I.e. Syria, Iran, Russia, China) you will know that its desolation is near.

    Luke 21:24-28 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the TIMES Of The Gentiles ARE FULFILLED

    25 "There will be SIGNS in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

    26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

    27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your REDEMPTION is drawing near.

    32 "Truly I tell you, THIS GENERATION will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

    33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but MY WORDS will never pass away.

    34 "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.

    35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.

    36 Be always on the WATCH and PRAY that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man (Jesus). Be born again now. John 3, John 3:16

    How can one be lost if Jesus saves him

    Once ur saves aren't u saved eternally

    Or can somebody urself or another make u lose ur salvation? And at what point can u ?
  • David W Black - in Reply on Revelation 12
    So the blood of Jesus does no better as atonement for our sins than the bulls and goats of the Old Testament. This is what you believe and want me to believe if Jesus cannot save you from sin now. If Jesus cannot save you from sin now, why did He die? Why did He bother to sacrifice Himself if it's no different than the Old Testament animal sacrifices? I know there is a difference in these sacrifices, and I know Jesus saves from sin here on Earth, if you truly repent. Those that aren't saved from sin, and those that say they are sinners saved by grace, do not want to stop their sins, so they've made false doctrines like this.

    This is just an example to get you to think. Suppose your sin is murder. You kill somebody else, you are arrested, put in jail, and are then taken to trial. The judge asks you what your plea is. "Your honor, we're just sinners saved by grace. I couldn't help myself." The judge will sentence you to life in prison or the death penalty as this judge will not buy the saved sinner and cannot help yourself plea. Yet you want us to believe God will buy the story that you can't help yourself when you face Him at the last judgement. God will not buy your saved sinner excuse to remain a sinner. He sent Jesus to save you from sin. And if you die in sin, your sentence is eternity in Hell.

    The act of repentance in which people are saved from sin includes forgiveness of the penalty, removing the guilt, and breaking the power of sin. If it is real repentance and if you are serious that is. However, many people that claim to be a Christian claim He cannot save from sin. So let's be clear, if you are sinning still, you are not saved. You will not go to Heaven if you die in sin. Now is the time to be saved from sin. The Judgement Day is set aside to judge you not to save.

  • Yester Vue on Genesis 1:19
    In the Pacific Ring cultures there is tale of mans earlier days when "The sky and the Earth were the same color, there was day and there was night but no Sunlight shown upon the Earth. (Catastrohpe results, sky was laden with dust/debris clouds for years) And a whole genration was born, lived, and died without ever seeing the sun. So the children of these past generations when one day the clouds finally began to dissipate, saw sunlight for the first time and believed they witnessed a new creation. "And God separated the heaveans from the Earth (made a firmamanet) and it was morning and it was night the first day". Make a bit more sense?

  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Victoria,

    The Lord led me to reply to your post. As seeing you have someone named "Richard" in your family that is dealing with epilepsy or "seizures". I dealt with seizures for over seventeen years and it was the most detrimental thing I've ever had to live through. As no medication stopped them. Getting in many car accidents because of them and so on. I would pray to God in tears "why me"? Just thinking I was going to have to deal with that issue for the rest of my life as nothing ever changed.

    Just last year I was lead to the Bible. After reading the words of Jesus Christ I was truly taken and gave my life to Him. Praying for Him to come into my heart, that my life was His, how sorry I was for stopping believing in Him and How much I loved Him. I am now a living person with a Testimony of a miracle of healing that the Lord can do. I prayed to Jesus Christ, to heal my seizures, and He showed me that he was healing me. It wasn't instant but things began to change.

    God truly works in mysterious ways that we cannot fully grasp as He knows the end before the beginning. He has a plan for all of us. Now I confess that Jesus Christ healed my seizures, along with changing my life, to as many people I can. To try and get them to the Lord. I only tell the truth and it is all for His glory not mine.

    You, and your family, are always in my prayers. Keep your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. God Bless you.
