  • Lou Contino on Zechariah 11
    Do not concern yourself so much with what is to come in the world that many of us know to be revealing itself day by day, but rather stand tall in the faith of Christ that all you do & see & hear is directed from Christ Jesus. So whether you are challenged or at ease, living through turmoil or calm; we must continue as directed by Christ to show compassion and mercy to all. Even in something as little as allowing another driver to advance in front of you at a toll. It is consideration and compassion to another. So let us continue in compassion gladly. Even when we are frustrated and it feels as it is breaking our backs, return to Christ for comfort to be at peace. Be confident in your faith that Christ will have Mercy upon you as all is directed upon you through Him. Fear not!
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1
    If you've said something incorrectly or inappropriately to someone, then go to that person & ask for forgiveness.

    If you've hurt someone or committed some sin against that person, first confess your sin to God & receive His forgiveness through His Son Jesus Christ - then go to the one whom you've wronged & confess your error & make restitution if necessary to prove your sorrow.

    If you've broken a law & you know that the authorities are after you for the crime, then the right thing to do is to present yourself to them as one admitting to it in a sorrowful manner.

    In all these things, one has to humble oneself, admit to the error & seek forgiveness & make restitution. These are the steps towards being honest, humble & receiving peace in your soul about the matter. We all make errors in our lives - God does forgive us readily, but the hardest thing is for us to admit the error & act in humility, which in the natural man, goes against our pride & self justification.
  • Patricia on 3 John 1
    Meaning of John 2 or 3 -8. People born of the Spirit ???? Can't pull verse up to read or have discussion about meaning

    Can you help ?? To explain what he means by not knowing people born with the Spirit ???
  • Rob on Luke 21
    Luke ch 21 v 8

    This verse is so today !

    Anywhere you find the scriptures you find evil workers waiting to deceive!

    Trust only the word of God , not men's interpretations of the word of God . That's why God gave us the Bible .

    If a person actually understands it's because they have been taught by God s Holy Spirit, very rare these days . Every one has his version and does that what seems right to them . All unrighteousness. There is no private interpretation of scriptures. Seek the truth and be from errors like the Trinity godhead , and the rapture doctrines , together they are very potent and effective to rob people of faith and Gods blessings , the spirit of Antichrist is real and has its victims that prefer sin over obedience.

    Read your Bible prayerfully don't take my word for it discover for your self . Beware of the deceivers !
  • Mishael on the Imploding of Society - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    When I was 12 yrs old, we heard of girls that got pregnant out of wedlock; and either went to a relatives house to have the child and let it be adopted.

    Or, women went to un-wed mothers homes to give birth and release the baby to be adopted.

    Enter the 60's and free, unrestrained sexual sin. It was like living amongst rabbits on LSD. Grandparents had to raise their grandchildren.

    A decade later, abortion was legalized and the unwed mothers homes disappeared.

    Homosexuals came out of the closet

    Another decade, AIDS appeared and was declared a pandemic by the CDC, but didn't do anything about it.

    Following decade lesbians decided to live reckless and large too.

    2000's, they all want to be families with children.

    Now, they all demand to live married and force society to accept their standards in public schools.

    I've seen all this happen. Christians need to hang out in their state legislatures and scream for CHOICE to put their children in Christian schools!!

    We have to live here until Jesus comes to get us. It's up to us to protect our rights too. I'm even favorable to home schooling.

    Our kids can grow up more intelligent because they will not be slammed in their emotional life with the loose morals of an evil generation that has Declared WAR on children (all ages).

    Now the sex traffickers are kidnapping Christian children and teens. How many will just disappear on Halloween this weekend? Will we even see those stories on evening news?

    We are to GO YE to the world in our cities; our neighborhoods. Take the gospel to them. Don't let the world preach "their gospel of death, despair and sexual depravity, into our homes.

    We have to teach the Bible to our kids age 3 and up. There is no reason to let them watch secular tv as a babysitter! Drop Netflix and get PureFlix !!!

    Stop Compromising! Half Christian and half ?? We spend big bucks on MEDIA. It's the gospel of SATAN. Why are we so weak?

    Be strong. Get wisdom. Be fearless.
  • Erech Christ Nimrod on Matthew 24:42
    Watch and Pray. Be Ready. Be Strong!!! Feed the Household of the Lord the Meat of the Word. For in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh for war (Revelation 19:11-21) Watch, Pray and Feed the Household. Time is much shorter. Amen.
  • Vernard marshall on Psalms 119:11
    THY word have I hid in mine heart that I may not sin against Thee / when we hide something and we have need of it we return to that place where it were hidden.
  • Kapono Kamakeeaina on Genesis 1
    Who do you turn to if your wrong?. Okay who do I turn to that is my question.
  • Hugo Zyl - in Reply on John 2
    God bless you brother Richard in Christ

    Thank you heartily for a very mature response which shows some spiritual common sense. It is not something seen very often on these kinds of discussion forums. It is like a breath of fresh-air; and I appreciate your time and effort to type it up.

    Love in the Lord of all, Jesus Christ
  • Hugo Zyl - in Reply on John 1
    Christian love to you brother Chris

    Thanks you once more for you reply. Let us leave it there for now as I digest what has been offered to me.

    Peace and love in Christ to you and the children of God where you are.
  • Amen, Mervyn! You are so useful to Jesus! Always focus on the blessings and the abilities you Do have! The blessings he bestowed upon you.

    God Bless
  • T - in Reply on Psalms 1
    You need a study Bible. I use the King James Study Bible and it is wonderful! Provides explanation of scripture, references to other scripture, many notes that are very beneficial and translation of words. You can also use your phone, tablet or computer to Google scripture and include the word "meaning"(exp. John 3:16 meaning) in your search. Pray for the Holy Spirit to help you understand what you are reading! As always, give thanks to God for the ability to have a Bible in your hands!
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Genesis 4
    Genesis 4:17 tells us Cain knew his wife and she bare Enoch. We can affirm by scripture that he married his wife.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    The days of statesmen leaders are long gone: you know the days way back in political history, when a few men governed by their consciences, in the fear of God & instilling righteousness in society. Nowadays, political muscle & job security take precedence over doing what is right & so governments give support to the majority voice & just enough bait to the minority to keep them happy. In my mind, any imbecile could do that work - it doesn't take any skill to work with the numbers. But it would take one of character (both as an individual & party) to go against the tide of people's demands & act upon proper moral & ethical values & for the general good of all: those still in the womb & in the world. But the fact is that such a party would never get in, as the evil one has his say & sway in the hearts of the unregenerate & degenerate.

    Yet, even with such a bleak outlook for the future, we know that God will still have His final Word & that even through our wonder & despondency, He still uses such governments to fulfil His Plans. 2 Kings 14:26-27 reminds us that even with wicked Jeroboam, God could use him to bring Israel out of her bitter affliction - that all things are possible with God. We should pray for those in government (1 Timothy 2:1-3) & be as those who that stand in the gap, interceding for them who have not God's love & power in their lives (Ezekiel 22:30).
  • Hm - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    Matthew 22:36-40

    New International Version

    36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"

    37 Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments

    2 Peter 3:18

    King James Version

    18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen

    Romans 1:17

    "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith."
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    What I don't understand about the pro-death argument is how a Christian can justify the mass-murder of babies when there's clear Bible verses that an unborn baby is sacred and made in God's image.

    My only guess as to this position is thinking of special cases of rape or incest. But adoption is still the best alternative in any case if a mother doesn't want to be one. Barren moms and dads can pay thousands of dollars and wait many years to adopt, because other moms would rather kill their baby than let he/she have a loving adoptive family to raised in.

    It doesn't make sense how it's illegal to kill an unborn animal like an eagle egg or many other animals or harming plants too, but it's legal to kill an unborn human and the government will even help you pay for it. Does that make sense to anyone?
  • Steven Meyers on Genesis 4
    Where might I find scripture explaining this question,

    Who exactly did Cain marry?

    (And please note that I asked for "scripture" and not opinion, with all due respect)

    I've simply not been able to find it and am only just curious- not questioning the Bible. Thank you and be blessed

    Using this Website for Searches

    Some words that I see, I run through THIS websites SEARCH BOX to see if the search engine has that word in it.

    If the word your looking up doesn't fetch some scriptures, then it's not in the KJV. The website will ask if you want to google search? It will offer scriptures it thinks will help you find the word you are searching:

    Similar but not the same.

    Don't be afraid to search around and see what all this website can help you with in your studies.

    **The Commentaries are within the Search Box. Click/touch your scripture. It will turn yellow. Scroll downward and there you can read the Commentary by a scholar.

    If you get "lost". Just back arrow out or go out and come back in again. Don't be afraid of it. You'll be an expert in no time.

    Always ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand scripture. He is your Teacher. He's just waiting on you to ask for HELP.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 122
    I am so blessed to hear of your mothers healing.

    At times, In the Gospels, Jesus Healed everybody. Other times He couldn't because of unbelief.

    The more we know about how he interacted with every day people; the more settled our faith is that He desires to bless and heal his children.

    Ask and receive. Lord Jesus bless this family. Song of Solomon 6:3.

    May they depend upon you for strength, courage, and assistance with things they cannot handle. Confidence in the face of fear. Be their Strong Protector. Thank you Blessed Savior. Amen
  • Georgina Mafisa - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    I do not support abortion, nor any act that inflict pain and suffering on God's creation, that includes animals .
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 12:6
    I never understand Why people want to know what Not Canonized scripture means?

    WHY is not the King James Bible good enough for you?

    I'm not going to search the world over, for your answers. If the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ (the WORD of GOD) aren't good enough for you to believe in

    Go YE and search Google

  • Sherrie Skowron on Revelation 1
    I would like to know is it a sin to be creamated? I was told those that are creamated go to hell and burn for eternity. It scares me I don't know what to do now. My husband was creamated and I was going to be so our daughter has us both. Please give me a true answer. I don't want to burn for eternity. I try hard my biggest sin is I smoke. Please pray for me and find me a way to quit. I've tried smoking stuff to quit & quit cold turkey and started back up a year ago and up to 2 packs & want to quit bad before i have a stroke or heart attack. I've been smoking over 45 yrs.please pray hard for me. Thank you with all my heart in advance.

    I'm not certain. But also, just because you're someone's cousin doesn't mean you'll automatically know them.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Just Live your conscience, and participate in our Country's process to make those views public and Heard.

    I was confronted today by a 20yr old telling me, a 60++ yr old, that she had just voted the first time. Then she sorta ranted about how all the 20 somethings we're casting ballots to replace what we have. Whoopee. I think some of that "hate" is directed against Godly people too. I told her I was a Christian and believed in issues; not solidarity.

    I just listened, sadly. These are the same people who will take Antichrists Mark, to prove they will not be controlled by God anymore.

    Parents, do explain how the system works. We pick the leader who follows Gods principals.... in a perfect world.

    Last night I looked up cultures who sacrifice children, and it's a sad sad thing to know Moloch still lives in hearts.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Your questions do come at a very appropriate time, particularly as we see so much of what God's Word speaking of sins & wrongs we commit, being treated as normal, acceptable behaviour in society. And yes, wherever possible Christians should speak out against abortion, homosexuality, easy pardon for criminals (being let out into society to inflict more pain & death on innocent people), and many more.

    If the world doesn't hear our objections to these wicked acts of men, then they will have nothing to alert them or deter them from their wicked course. Most likely our stand will 'fall on deaf ears', but as the prophets of old had to declare God's warnings, so should we make His Word & Will known wherever & whenever we can. See Ezekiel 3:17-21 for the heavy burden that was upon Ezekiel to warn the people & the consequences that came to him if he did not do so. Some use placards on streets or in front of abortion clinics, or through articles in media or advertisements, or just in conversation when the subject comes up. Our witness for righteousness must be clear even if it means that our words are considered as foolish & against society's wishes. Our words, lives & actions will never resemble the world's, nor should they ever come close - we are children of God & not of the World.

    Yes, it would be wrong to vote for leaders who support abortion, homosexuality, & a host of other evils, but one has to decide whether the fitness of that leader or the party he/she represents is also worthy of your vote. This is a very difficult decision to make especially for believers, especially in light of the upcoming U.S. elections, with some Christians refusing to vote on those grounds or even opting to support a Christian party, even these often don't fall in line with God's requirements, especially in this area of abortion.

    I hope you get some other useful thoughts on this important subject.
  • Kelli Jackson - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    It is very wrong to abortion a baby. This means that you are telling God, "God, I don't want this precious child you have allowed to give me. No thanks." The Bible says that children are a blessing and gift from God. I would encourage every parent who thinks of doing abortion to NOT do it. You will not only regret it, but it will forever change your life. Don't do it.
  • David on Proverbs 9
    Somewhere I have a big collection of Bibles but since moving house I can't yet find them.

    When I started reading the Book of Proverbs I had expect a list of everyday good advice but the Book isn't easy reading.
  • Ruth - in Reply on Psalms 122
    Mishael - I took my mum to a third podiatrist today for an opinion about her ingrown toe nail, previous two said how bad it looked, I was so concerned. I decided if this one advised surgery we'd have it done. Driving there this morning I just thought "Trust in God" and I was - also being prepared to be told surgery necessary. At the clinic the podiatrist was so gentle with mum and told me the toe nail was fine no surgery necessary and said the complete opposite to previous two!! Nothing short of a miracle in my opinion. I thanked God - and my sweet mum has been smiling since and looks comfortable. I do pray but think my trust is often overshadowed due to my worrying - hence putting in prayer request. Hopefully this miracle will energise my faith/trust. Thank you for your prayer.
  • Georgis on Psalms 1
    I try to read my bible every day. There are just some things that are not understandable. I would like to find a bible that explains the verses.
