    Thankfully God helped me choose my wife in the faith and after a while God helped her choose me to be her husband in the faith. If there was matchmaking it was of God only and across several thousand miles of country between us!

    25 years now of Holy Matrimony. I believe God once believers are on His same foundation can and will bless any marriage between one woman and one man.

    Revelation 8 re: wormwood,

    Timothys lying signs and wonders.

    Plus, the Holy Spirit Is the one who said: it's not global warming.

    I googled wormwood and nasa has a story on "supposed wormwood star". I didn't say it: nasa did. They, not Me.

    I follow many scientists reports and stories.

    Every day. NOT fake newspapers.

    God will confirm his own word ok?
  • Bob Gignac on Genesis 17:6
    Abraham is told (Genesis 17:6) that nations and kings would come from him. Do these nations exist today? If yes, then who are these nations?

    Thank you so much.

  • Dennis Reyerson on Matthew 27:25
    Who actually wrote Matthew, Mark, Luke and John?
  • IwG on Genesis 2
    Luke 8:11

    "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God."

    1 Peter 1:23

    "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."

    Genesis 1:31

    "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day."

    Psalms 119:107

    "I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word."

    Genesis 3:14

    "And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

    Genesis 3:15

    "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

    2 Timothy 4:1

    "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;"

    John 6:63

    "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."

    John 20:29

    "Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

    1Cor 15:45

    And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

    John 10:36 Say you of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, You blaspheme; because I said, I am the Son of God?

    Luke 3:38

    "Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God."
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:26
    I had a church tell me I was going to hell.

    I told them busting peoples doors open early Saturday mornings for to evangelize, was not kind. I told them they would harden their hearts against God. They would "pray" anything to get us to leave. I had to stop going.

    Next church believed all single people should be married ASAP. They did their own matchmaking.

    You need to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to the Pastor He wants to be your shepherd. He actually said turn here, go up 4 streets, turn left...I walked through the doors and Holy Spirit said there's your shepherd. I learned a lot there.

    Pray. The Lord will find you the best, no matter how far you have to drive. :D

    Dear Jesus make this easy for her and may her faith increase in your Goodness and Truth.

    1 Corinthians 7 is the marriage chapter.

    I'm old now so I can say outrageous things sometimes. I've been divorced 36 years. Live alone. I married for all the right reasons to the wrong person.

    Mary and Joseph we're engaged. Supposed to be a year, but she had to tell Joseph she was pregnant. He sought advise from his pastor, who told him all the laws for "putting away" Mary. Then advised Joseph to accept it. Joseph had a dream and was told about Jesus. Book of Luke.

    Dating would work better if we would take a year to really get to know who are we thinking of marrying. Everybody puts on a good front when dating a short time. It takes time to see the real face. Believers are NOT to marry unbelievers. We have no assurance they want to be saved, ever.

    Date long enough (no sex) till you can determine if they are interested in sharing your love for Jesus.

    This world system with its belief that 'anything goes' is NOT the voice to listen to.

    It has a devil running around seeking someone to devour.

    You need to be in prayer. Confess what happened. Ask for forgiveness. Ask God to help you. Christians are called to be at peace. If he is cruel mentally and emotionally and has ever threatened you; God may forgive the vow. I don't know.

    I would go see my Pastor and give him a list of reasons to seek divorce.

    I will pray for you to clearly hear from God on this issue. Read that chapter I gave you, slowly. The Bible does say God hates divorce. You can use the search boxes on this website to look up: bow, oath, marriage, divorce, put away. Your only safety in life will reflect how much of Gods Word you have in your heart (not head).

    Matthew 5
  • Sunday Alaka Ogechi on Romans 6:14
    The strongest motives against sin, and to enforce holiness, are here stated. Being made free from the reign of sin, alive unto God, and having the prospect of eternal life, it becomes believers to be greatly concerned to advance thereto. But, as unholy lusts are not quite rooted out in this life, it must be the care of the Christian to resist their motions, earnestly striving, that, through Divine grace, they may not prevail in this mortal state.
  • Carleton - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7:15
    Only a reasonable service: My wife and I held hands for the first time as we were being married.

    :)
  • Carleton - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Romans 11:1-19 is inspiring as well.

    Sometimes I think of Jesus at the beginning as a spring that became rivers that flowed all the way to Jesus the Christ Child. The banks of the river belong to God too, inspiring the flow of Truth all the way to the Savior.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7:15
    Aborted babies go to heaven. One might wonder: will I be there to meet my child?

    Has anyone found a scripture for that?

    All souls belong to God. (Scripture)
  • ROMANS Chapter 11 Mishael on Isaiah 1
    20 Well; because of unbelief ISRAEL were broken off, and thou (WE) standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

    21 For if God spared not the natural (Israel) branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

    22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on THEM, which fell, severity; but toward US, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

    23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in AGAIN.

    25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this MYSTERY lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that BLINDNESS in part HAS HAPPENED to Israel, UNTIL THE FULLNESS of the Gentiles (US) be come in.

    26 And so ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer (JESUS) and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob (ISRAEL).

    27 For this is MY COVENANT unto ISRAEL when I shall take away their sins.

    28 As concerning the gospel, they (Israel) are enemies for (US) your sakes: but as touching the election (US), they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.

    29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

    30 For as ye (US) in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through (ISRAELS) their unbelief:

    31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through (GENTILE) your mercy they also (ISRAEL) may obtain mercy.

    32 For God hath concluded them (Israel) all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all (Israel and Gentiles together).

    33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

    34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

    35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

    36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things:

    Comment: Would be great if we'd just let God bring this Mystery to fruition.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    Yes, An eternal soul in knowledge of a once known relationship with the Creator without light in eternal darkness without hope is hard to grasp. God in mercy as he clothed Adam and Eve in the hope of His Son who was at the beginning of Creation made a way of escape by the grace of Love.

    Amen.
  • Dean - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7:15
    I believe you meant Neither of them.. it is sort of like the couple that uses birth control but it doesn't work and she gets pregnant. Should they now consider abortion?
  • Kevin mack on Mark 1
    Just looked up locust plants on the internet, big difference in the description of the plant it's actually a tree . Known as honey locust trees or black honey locust trees. Also not the same info that was in my moms bible. O well , still think this is what John probably ate. Who would chase bugs for breakfast. Plus God forbid his people to eat certain things, bugs is one of them, so I think.
  • Rebekah - in Reply
    Your testimony. I mean wow, I'm blown away at how Jesus Christ has worked in your life. And honestly I think people mistake alot from the bible, when it actually is the manual for living our lives. (You often hear "well, kids dont come with instructions" but, yet they do!.) Now I'm a sinner, been baptized in the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit. Yet I stray. And sin. I did not heed the warnings God bestowed upon me, and now I'm asking for his help once again, hopeless to the idea of being able to leave my narcissistic husband. We are toxic together. Not only him but me as well. Please pray with me!
  • David A Man After God39s Own Heart - in Reply on Ephesians 5:26
    The life of King David represents what a lot of people go through too. You'll have to search back through the comment room history pages 1-100, to see a study I did on Tamar; David's daughter.

    David was "a man after Gods own heart." No matter what happened, or collapsed like a pile of leaves, David always turned towards God for his help/understanding.

    "The Poet King" is how I've thought of him at times. Read his heart.

    He praised and sang his heart out to God at every twist and turn. It gives me much comfort to read the Psalms Of David in his older life. His kids just wouldn't sit still. His enemies railed on him night and day.

    Some people react to that by getting stoney in the heart; blaming God, their dad, Mom, The President; life in general, future in doubt. Blame is a vortex (like a tornado) that just spins around eating up your happiness and future; until you realize that YOU are the problem. Leave all the mess on the Altar of God and turn back to Him.

    Walk BESIDE Him. Not dragging along behind Him. You know...when life gets so painful and it never lets up; pulsating with lost hope and plunges into darkness. Like driving a toothpick under a nail kind of pain?

    Turn back to the one who has loved you so much, He was nailed to a cross for you!

    Return to your first love; when you met Him the first time. Confess your meandering and be restored.

    Grow up and move into son/daughter status. God isn't going to chase you down or drag you back home by the collar. You turn back to Him!

    If you want to love people, family, fellowman; much better than currently: Grow up in Christ. Get off that blame train.

    Be a person after Gods own Heart. Let Him be your Daddy.

    Mishael
  • Echel Romain on Daniel 6
    God will always be with you even it seems like anybody can end you. God is a God of saving. He will always be there if you need help. He will never let u die in the presence of your enemies. People might be jealous of you but don't worry. God will always there. If you need help on a test, He will help you.
  • Kevin mack on Mark 1
    Ah ! Locust, it's a plant . It looks somewhat like poison sumach when fully grown and ready to pick. It has a cone shaped cluster at the end of each branch. Also has everything in it that the body needs in nutrition, all the vitamins and minerals. It alot like a cluster of nuts and grains mixed in a cone shaped clump. Found all this out in a dictionary inside of a big family bible my mom had from 1957. It's God's granola !! Not bugs . People need to do research, not jump to conclusions.
  • Christina Robinson on Matthew 24:26
    On this Scripture could it be referring to lawlessness in the Churches in opening their doors to the Church telling the congregation that it is a sin not to gather and not practicing social distance and not wearing a mask . Opening up the nursery handling the children without concern for there health and going as far as to go to Summer Camp and the children mocking others hugging on each other while with a mask on. Posting a preacher rebuking christian people for not opening there doors telling us that we should not wear a mask and not social distance because the first Church in the Book of Acts did not do this. I see this Scripture for this time as they are saying here He is follow us and if you don't you are in sin.

  • Brianna vs 10 on James 3:10
    Excellent reminder. So many christians have become comfortable with using profanity. How can we praise God and curse out the same mouth!?!?!?! True the tongue is a difficult thing to tame, but there is a difference between actively trying to utter pleasing speech and just simply giving in to bad behaviour. With God all things are possible. If we want to overcome a problem, he can help us.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    They died spiritually. Became like us; mortal. Adam lost the closeness that he had once. It's really tender how God made them clothing to take away their fig leaves. He covered them. God felt that pain of separation too. But looking way down through history, He saw His son dying and taking away the sins of mankind on his own body.

    When we do sinful things: that pain we feel has to be taken to the Cross; so we can be restored.

    Times in the past, I'd think, "well God has me covered, no big hurry to hit my knees."

    But I learned by the silence from God, that I would do anything to restore the fellowship that bathed my soul in Light.

    Darkness hurts.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 25
    Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Romans 8

    "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us". That includes "so called" global warming, asteroid impact, volcanos, earthquakes, solar flares or any other "supposed judgement of God".

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1John 4:18

    Mishael, be warned!
  • Tunde Aliyu on Psalms 27:13

  • Carleton - in Reply on Ephesians 5:26
    The Gospel Tract and Bible Society have some very simple but clear tracts on very many subjects for wayfarers that wish to cross in due time to the other shore in confidence of peace and salvation in Jesus Christ. They are located in Kansas.

  • B Bulluck on Psalms 91
    I think Psalms 91 is very appropriate in the time we live in today. I read this Psalm every morning, will continue to read it as long as this pandemic is upon the land.
  • James Williams on Psalms 23
    Psalms 23 is the power an might coming down from heaven for such a time as this, God said he would never leave us neither for sake us!! That's what Psalms 23 means to me the Blood of Jesus all over me I love reading psalms. Father Son & the Holy spirit.
