    Yes it means we must take importance notice of Jesus says and not says .Gospel of John chapter twenty one verses twenty to twenty four show us it matters what Jesus says and does not says .Jesus says he is son of God never days he is God we say that but we are not Jesus we can't add words not said or take words away from what is said very important not do this .
  • Florence Jones on 1 Timothy 5
    When God looked at the blood atonement and saw it wasn't changing the Sun the Holy Spirit said prepare me a body and I will go down and give myself as an offering was it God that enter that body himself and came to earth himself and dwell among us for a short period of time
  • JANET on Revelation 22
    Could someone tell me, when you die, do you go straight to heaven, or are you "in the grave" awaiting the Lord Jesus to raise you from the dead when he comes back again? I just feel quite confused as to what happens when you die.

    Many thanks,

    Janet
  • Randy McGuire on Romans 8
    I can't help to think of what scripture teaches us when reading and studying the book of Romans. All of God's creation is seeking deliverance but only those that have been born again will find this deliverance in Christ alone. Only those that have the spirit of God have hope when seeing death all around us. We see and know the world is fallen, and creation is groaning longing for God since the fall of Man. Creation itself teaches us that they is a God and that there is a curse. People will be without excuse teaching some other way to heaven and deny the Lord Jesus that hung and died for all that would believe in him. The world that is fallen a world full of religion has polluted the minds of so many by bring in damnable heresies. Yes, he is God, you bunch devils, you

    religious Pharisees and Sadducees. This is for the real religious that have not the spirit and those that don't believe in the resurrection. Hell Fire and brimstone preach let's preach Christ. Read how Jesus spoke to this crowd. Thank Lord for this it was good.
  • James H Bedsworth
    I have tried to find the scripture which is a single verse where Jesus makes a statement that asserts and authenticates the entire Old Testament they all used was correct in every respect. My belief this scripture is in Matthew or Luke. Any help in finding the scripture that Jesus validated the complete Old Testament the Levites, High Priest, Priesthood, Sadducees, and Pharisees had used and relied on was what had been given and protected.

    Thank You,

    James H Bedsworth

    What are the names of all the Jesus's siblings ?
  • Richard H Priday on John 9
    Predestination and John 10

    This entire chapter is based on the Pharisees; a blind man, the Disciples and a few others and Christ as revealed to them. along In a verse from the next chapter; Jesus states believe me; or if not at least on the WORKS I do ( John 10:38). Jesus selected or elected this man for healing; without him asking first which is noteworthy.

    Verse 2 starts out with the Disciples themselves blindly following a superstitious idea that someone had to have sinned in order for the man to be in this condition. This at least partially could have been a logical concept since others had been healed who were told not to sin lest a worse thing happen to them; for instance from John 5:14. Jesus answered this "one size fits all" concept of the fate of this man by giving God's glory as a reason; as well as a prophetic hint perhaps partially fulfilled at His crucifixion; with a final one after the end of the Age of Grace in v. 4-5.

    After he followed simple instructions; first his neighbors asked what had happened and if it was Him; then the Pharisees with their usual condemnation of Sabbath Day healings, they checked with the parents who verified his identity then sent him back to them; then further discourse as to Christ's character and repeated questions actually got the blind man to realize that Christ could not be a sinner as no man could do this miracle in that case. This led to him being thrown out of the synagogue; His revelation and acceptance and worship of Christ as SOn of God. Then comes the end where the Pharisees are told they remain in sin and the blind man sees spiritually and physically.

    Therefore; despite continuing evidence of God's divine nature in Christ's actions; the blind Pharisees continue to be blinded by the god of this world to Christ as Lord and Savior.
  • VOPS on Proverbs 3
    Prov. 3:11-12 speaks to me differently.

    "My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

    For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth".

    Some troubles faced by us these days is as a result of lack of knowledge, which leads to punishment from our Lord and Creator because we have despised HIM.

    However, these punishments should be seen as an act of chastening by God so that we become conscious and get back to the right path, of which we should not be weary of. In fact, he is only correcting us with such punishments mainly because he loves us - our Creator is a forgiving God.
  • Wade Harrids on Romans 14
    Can you explain Acts 2:38
  • Richard H Priday on John 8
    Predestination and John 8

    The first 12 verses describe a woman caught in adultery. The fact that the man wasn't brought as well was suspect. Jesus gave instructions for the man without sin to throw the first stone; and when He remained mercy triumphed over judgment. It should be noted; however that in verse 11 she was told to "go and sin no more". In verse 12; Jesus appeals to the fact that He is the light of the world.

    Then; when disputing with the Pharisees and giving what seemed like a clear message of salvation and how He was connected with the Father; verse 27 shows that they really didn't know what He was referring to. Verses 31-32 describes what is often called "Perseverance of the saints". It makes clear that to produce good fruit; we must remain in Him; which of course is only possible for those sealed with the Spirit ( Eph. 1:13-14).

    In verse 33; another lie is told; as we see elsewhere in John that they were never slaves. Then; continuing to verse 38; Jesus reveals whose father they have. They are thinking about physical ancestry; Jesus is talking about spiritual authority; and spells iit out continuing to verse 48. The situation deteriorates further when Jesus is accused of having a demon (v. 48; following v.52-53; then Jesus gives a clear statement that He is the "I am" or God Himself; and the last first shows yet another attempt to stone Him where He escapes. (See John 1:11 to summarize this book). They are spiritually blind; but held accountable having physical vision (see John 9:41; Isaiah 43:8)
  • Richard H Priday on John 7
    John 7 and predestination

    This chapter is a continuation of a narrative indicting the unbelief Christ had to endure from all members of society. Of all His sufferings before the cross; perhaps this is the most neglected and unappreciated as it took up so much of his time and energy.

    First off in verses 1-10 we see the unbelief of His own brethren (probably but possibly not necessarily exclusive to his mother; father; brothers and sisters although Joseph may have died by this point). Jesus' comment about not being His time yet could refer to the fact that He was still keeping things from those who would soon persecute Him once perceived as a threat such as Luke 5:14; or perhaps the full revelation which would occur at the cross.

    Verse 15 shows once again their perception of a mere man which Christ responded to in verse 16-17 which once again shows the source of any true wisdom is from God above.

    Following this; we once again have Christ validating doing Sabbath day healings to counter a repeated contentious issue. This helps to illustrate that when any TRUE miracles occur; persecution can't be too far behind.

    Following this; another failed attempt to sieze Him occured with the Pharisees contending with those who believed in Christ. Apparently Elijah and a couple other prophets indeed came from Galilee; so the allegations of v. 52 were spurious. Since it wasn't His predetermined time to die yet; everyone scattered in v. 53
  • Richard H Priday on 1 Corinthians 3
    When we look at the concept of "planting and watering" it appears that the verse on sowing and reaping comes to mind in John 4:38 where they were "reaping what they had not worked for". This shows not only Christ sowing the seed but those who were co laborers (in this case the woman who had been living in adultery and the townspeople that discussed matters and made their own decision that Christ was indeed the promised Messiah.

    What is noteworthy here are two concepts that can be illustrated starting in verse 10. Those who do the watering AND the sowing are not to be lifted up in any prideful manner. Christ was to be exalted; not Paul or Apollos as being the "better" teacher. Also; those doing the watering share in the reward which is often neglected with evangelistic campaigns today that don't continue afterwards with proper discipleship particularly with indigenous pastors on the ground today; or with crusades in the USA recently.

    The famous passage about the Bema Seat in verse 15 appears tied in with the watering aspect; and seems to give further indication in the verses following that sin indeed causes burning up and loss. Many seem to say it means simply neutral actions that have no value such as activities done in church that aren't meaningful. It seems perfectly clear here that it indicates sin; and that which can damage others. I would refer to Matthew 5:19 as a cross reference here. It is clear from verse 16 also that events such as 1 Cor. 11:27 and 1 Cor. 5:5 serve as examples as well in the same book. Finally see Rev. 3:11. Losing a reward is a serious matter.

  • Willie milton on 1 Corinthians 14
    Please remember the Holy Ghost came to the woman and left the same stairstep of Dominion that he had from Gen 3:16 just holy now but in God she is still a woman and have to follow the course of this Flesh. All she do in the lord should be under the man's leadership and not leading him .woman have the zeal of God in love but some is not according to knowledge. They need teaching if they are willing to obey then they need teaching . There is no world where the woman can come ahead of the man . This is Satan

    in the Church Thanks Willie
  • Willie milton on 1 Corinthians 14
    God do not contradict himself the holy ghost has nothing to do with the flesh but power over the spirit of the devil .A women and a man have a chores in this word through the flesh and the no male or female is for when we become Angels. A woman still are under Adam and eve law in the flesh and the flesh of a man have the rulership over the woman. The holy spirit will stop a woman for her monthly period nor childbirth nor death . Hebrews 5:1 if a priest is needed and your pastor is dead then then church must

    line all qualified males and choose a priest from among men. Numbers 28:1 when god was setting up the priesthood he said call all males from the family of Arron that they may minister to me in the priesthood . God had a women prophetess call Mariam Moses sister. a elder is appointment after one is saved. The holy ghost have nothing to do with putting a woman in authority over a man just over the Devil works. 1Tim 2:11 this was after the holy Ghost had fell Acts 2:1 -2 1Co 11:3-4 this was written after the Holy Ghost had fell. So why now the women liberation is come now it seems that God have a new thing concerning the Pastor position. if you believe anything out of the scripture you are in False Doctrine and the Bible say's if a Angel from heaven preach any other gospel from what we preach let him be accursed . So it is not what God told the woman she could not do...He told her what to do. Thanks Willie
  • James on Revelation 1
    Time speeds increase else man would not survive.
  • Alex N
    When God told Moses that his name was Abraham Issac and Jacob and my memorial to ALL Generations Exodus 3 :15....It was just prophetic that there is gonna be an Israel of God.... Gal 6:16

    Via the seeds of the Sower the words of God,.... Being bornagain of an in corruptible seed is gonna make us the ISRAEL OF GOD....That New Covenant...The contents of the book that he wrote with his own blood .

    We got to keep in mind that Abraham Issac and Jacob was a picture of multiplcation of Abraham's seed...That earthy Promise.....But there is a heavenly Promise that is the multiplication of very God the seed of Christ Jesus that is gonna be as the Stars of heaven in multitudes.....God Almighty swore by himself when he made that heavenly Promise meaning he was gonna multiply his very self.....Thats y Jesus is saying to whom the word ( that Godly seed ) came it made them Gods plural....Thus this Abraham Issac and Jacob title is just a picture of an Israel of God...
  • Eldon Gillett on Genesis 17
    Blessings to all through our lord and savior Jesus Christ.

    I have accepted our divine lord as my father of all my existence. I am studying the Bible and getting to be closer to my Father Abba through his teaching.

    I have read this chapter and would like to know what it is meant by circumcising? What motions or act is done when a person is being circumcised spiritually?
  • Adam
    It's come to my attention that school teachers are increasingly pushing their worldly ideals on our impressionable children, such as pressuring them to experiment with different gender identities and pushing lgbt propaganda. This is greatly disturbing to me and I'm having a hard time restraining my frustration due to this evil being allowed to openly operate and harm these vulnerable kids in what is supposed to be a safe place for them.

    I am seeking any Biblical advice on how we should conduct ourselves. Should Christians be pacifists and turn the other cheek or do we have a responsibility to push back in some manner that would be pleasing to God?

    The Gospel of John

    "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    The same was in the beginning with God.

    All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

    And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

    There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

    The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

    He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

    That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

    He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

    He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

    But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

    Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

    And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

    And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

    For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

    No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."

    Good morning. Have a blessed day.

  • Mia bell
    1st John 5:6-9

    This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood.

    And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

    For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood,and these three agree in one.

    If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his son.
  • Neville Stewart on Job 17
    Romans 8:9

    "Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his"

    Acts 8:15-17 seems to suggest that it is possible

    to believe and not have the Spirit?

    So how does one:

    a.determine whether this critical status has been achieved?

    b.And if it is pending, what is the mechanism for the attainment of that status?
  • Margaret Hall on Luke 22:18
    This is medically possible if one is under great mental duress. When this happens it causes the capillaries to open up and you sweat blood. You have to remember his father was showing him what he was going to go through. Jesus's death had to be of his own freewill. That is why he asked his father " to take this cup from me, not my will but thine be done" . Jesus was so tortured that he was unrecognizable as a man. We read this in psalm 22 which describes his crucifixion. He says I am no more a man I am a worm. This worm that he refers to was used to dye clothes scarlet. He was so beaten for 24 hours that he was unrecognizable. This is why that had to get one Simon of Cyrene to carry his cross. You have to read all the gospels to price together and get a full picture of his crucifixion. I hope this helps, and may God bless you in your thirst for knowledge and understanding.
