    WHO killed the disciples like mark,james,peter etc...?.....WAS it the jews? OR was it another religious order? Does that order also exist today?.........We know that Jesus laid down his life.......BUT WHO put themselves in the works to carry out the deeds that were done?
  • SwinburneWinfred on Acts 24:24
    not afraid of the road, only afraid of short.
  • Chris on Isaiah 2
    The Bible is replete with the LORD's name: Jehovah (YHWH). There are of course other names that He is known by, according to His Position & Work. You can Google 'The Names of God', to learn more. But you mention Baha'ullah: his name means "glory of God". He is seen as the latest prophet of God & has a good following. However, when you examine his teachings, you will see that hidden behind his praises of God, he has a low regard of God's Son, Jesus Christ, treating him as just a prophet, as Mohammed & others do. When this happens and the Bible is reinterpreted, then falsehoods arise & we no longer have a true message from God for us but a lie through negation of Jesus' Sacrifice.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 1
    An interesting subject for thought. My personal impression, as part of my musings, is that spirit beings were not governed by natural physics of movement but rather like the teleporting observed in the series: Star Trek! In that show, men had to de-materialize, go through a teleporter, & re-materialize at the destination. Of course, spirit beings have no physical material to 'de-moleculize', but the manner by being in one place & in the next moment, in another, seems logical to me. The fact that even evil spirits can inhabit both man & beast serves to describe not only their substance but power to move (at an inconceivable speed) according to their will.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 1
    There are Scripture references to this which are general warnings. The first one we cite is: Ephesians 5:18 "Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit". Apostle Paul warns of high consumption of alcohol which leads to loss of self control & sin, but rather to be filled (drunk) with God's Spirit. A believer filled with the Holy Spirit is truly a joy to be near rather than one who is inebriated. Other references: Luke 21:34, Romans 13:13, 1 Corinthians 5:11, 6:10, Ephesians 5:18, Genesis 9:21, 19:30-36, Proverbs 20:1, 23:20,30,31, are some for you to look at. So, alcohol is not prohibited per se , but warnings are given which should alert us to its use/results.
  • Benjamin on Romans 4:5
    Thank you, Jesus Christ, for having mercy on a wicked sinner like me.
  • Mishael to SAAH - in Reply on Matthew 1
    Here are the scriptures on strong drink you asked for: (some abbreviations) Ephesians 5:18, Proverbs 20:1 & 23:29-35 ,Galatians 5:21, 1 Corinthians 6:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:7, Romans 12:12, 14:21, Isaiah 5:11, Psalms 104:15,
    1 Peter 2:11-12
    I know it's ok to eat meat but when it becomes gluttony, it's not a good witness. Write these in pencil back of your Bible
  • Mishael - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    I totally agree with the scripture you sent. I used to wonder what apostolic ministries were about, but I have enough problems with the Jehovah witnesses that drop by. I tried to share Jesus with them but their eyes kind of glaze over. I pray for them instead now. He's not willing that any should perish; but that all would come to repentance. Amen.
  • SAAH h Joey on Matthew 1
    Is it actually forbidden by scripture not for christians to drink. alcohol?

    you may pls help with scripture references.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Ezekiel 1
    I do not know about all that speed of light stuff. I do know Paul spoke of a 4th dimension that may just be where the spririts have access to. Ephesians Chapter 3: 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
    1. breadth, and 2. length, and 3. depth, and 4. height
    Maybe the spirits exist in our 3 dimensions when they wish and exist in a spirit realm of the 4th?
    the Bible does not give a lot of insight into this.
  • Chris on Revelation 14:3
    When preachers teach on the subject of the Great Tribulation & of end times, they will touch on some or all of these associated chapters in the Book of Revelation. Maybe some preachers believe that Christians will not be around to experience this horrendous time on Earth, so there's little point in making a major study of it. I would be interested to know which cults you refer to that "dapple with it"? And what points do they make from it? Revelation has a lot of imagery, as revealed to the apostle John. He reported what he saw by vision/dream from the angel; he probably had limited understanding of some things, but he recorded what God wanted us to know.
  • Paula lewis - in Reply on Isaiah 2
    Jehovah is used numerous times in the King James Version
  • Bill on James 2:26
    This contradicts most Chrisrians belief that faith alone will lead to salvation. Faith without works is damnation.
  • Paula Lewis - in Reply on Isaiah 2
    Yes it's very evil it is not a black or white thing. We are to forgive no matter what But not used as a rug mat! Although, Some may need counseling from a preacher or someone that is qualified and that can be trusted. Lots of prayers are needed. But with God all things are possible.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14
    You can get many views on this matter, so you need to read the portion you have quoted, as well as 1 Cor 11:3 onwards (specifically on the relationship between the Godhead and mankind). Bearing in mind also that women played a very important part in the Church & most definitely as mothers in raising godly children (e.g. Timothy). Based on what the Scriptures say on this subject & without any further details elsewhere, it seems that apostle Paul does require the silence of women in the Church in regards to teaching. Of course, to sing and pray is allowed, but teaching is the responsibility of men. I know women now pastor & lead & blessings have flowed; but there is a biblical warrant here.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    A disciple is a follower of Christ. An apostle is someone who was sent out on a commission. All true believers who are following Christ are called disciples. There are no more apostles today because the qualification of an apostle was that he had to be there from the time of John's baptism and had to be an eyewitness to the resurrection of Christ. Therefore, we still have disciples today, but no apostles.
  • Chris - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    To add: Jesus' apostles also were filled with the Holy Ghost so that with their lives and ministry it was said, "that they turned the world (sic) upside down" (Acts 17:6). Whereas His disciples were empowered at special times (when they were to told to go out and heal the sick, raise the dead, etc. (Matthew 10:8). Today, there are no apostles in the strictest sense of the word (some would disagree, of course), since we have not seen the Lord, but we are His disciples as we learn from His Spirit and do what He asks of us.
  • Henry Peyatt on Matthew 1
    What are the seven spirits of god
  • Chris - in Reply on Galatians 6
    That's a wonderful testimony, Gina. "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the LORD of Hosts" (Zechariah 4:6). This verse reminds us that when we come to the end of ourselves and all seems hopeless in life, it can only be the Lord of Glory Who intervenes, and His Christ, Who intercedes on our behalf. You have rightly given Him all the Glory. Walk on in faith and in the Power of the Lord.
  • John - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Well, there is no evolution to begin with, so...
  • Mishael To Kent - in Reply on Psalms 70
    She was there of her own free will. This is where your faith has raise up and. Bind,
    the spirit of infirmity and death, in the Name of Jesus and by the Word of his authority and by the power of the Holy Spirit that those evil spirits leave and go into outer darkness! Ask God to send angels to the 4 corners of your house to prevent re-entry. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you so you can pray & pray for others. Stand strong in God. Study armor of God. Do it till the HS gives his Peace to your heart. Now call your Church & ask them to pray. Then sanitize your Dads home; everything. Pray in the Spirit. Speak out healing scriptures. I will pray for you and your friend. Be strong.

  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 11:26
    I was taught Selah, means "pause, and think on these things'.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    A disciple is anyone who has believed on Jesus's Word and has followed Him; from time then to now.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    Apostles actually saw Jesus in his ministry.
  • Laneyboy01 on Ezekiel 1
    It's logical that spirit beings have a higher mode of transportation and communication than we do. What Ezekiel saw is closely akin to what John saw in Revelation. They travel much faster than light speed for the human eye can't see them unless they slow their physics down to less than light speed. Think about it! Their technology is much more advanced than ours. For instance, the universe is 13-14 billion years old, but it's 40 something billion light years across. Spirit physics is DIFFERENT. When God spoke the universe into being, He used His undiminished energy to expand it, that also explains dark (unseen) energy and dark matter. Give credit to Him. Satan created evil, sin and death!
  • Gerrit on Acts 13
    The Son is subject to the Father ,for the Son sent by the Father in His (the Fathers ) name.
    The Spirit is subject to the Father, for the Spirit is sent by the Father in the Sons name.
    The Spirit is subject to the Son as well as to the Father , for the Spirit is is sent by the Son as well as by the Father
    Jesus breathed unto them and said unto them "Receive ye the Holy Ghost"
    God the Father purposed redemption.
    God the Son secured redemption.
    God the Spirit applies redemption.
    One Triune God ,three functions !
  • Laneyboy01 - in Reply on Ezekiel 1
    Not necessarily demons but can be chosen of the angelic realm. Both have the technology to have certain craft available. What John saw in Revelation is closely akin to what Ezekiel saw in chapter 1. How does God travel? Extremely faster than light and so do the spirit realm, that's why we don't see them unless they slow their spirit structure down to light speed or less

  • St Francis on 1 Corinthians 14:39
    I am responding to the coments:"1Cor14 is all about spiritual gifts...." No, it is not. Paul is begging the church to follow that which is important: brotherly love, ie. the love of God and Unity. Am I to be so dotrinically correct and rigid that I forsake the commandments that Jesus left us with; to love the Lord my God and my brother as well. Self indulgence mascarading as correcting an error of doctrine is Satan's favorite trick. Why do I always have a comment and an opinion that MUST BE HEARD about everything? Especially something controversial like speaking it toungues. I am here to proclaim: "cut that off, grow this out, stop doing this, start doing that.." pride. 4bid not amen
