    Not all who cry out Lord Lord shall be saved, but those who endure unto the end!

    Read the whole Chapter...Matthew 7:23

    And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
  • Ronita Lewis - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    I agree that Jesus knows everything. Nothing can be kept from Him. He knows the desires of the heart.
  • Duane Martin - in Reply on Proverbs 16:9
    The worse thing man ever did to the Bible was to put it into Verses! Many people stop reading in the middle of a chapter when the next verse says "Therefore" and they don't get the whole meaning of what's been said by doing so! Can you imagine if you took a letter from someone who wrote you and then you put it into verses and then tried to read it verse by verse, instead of as a whole!?

    Keep the commandments. Sometimes it is very hard to do so. The devil walks about trying to tempt us. Resist, repent and be saved.

  • Alex on Luke 9
    Comments by Alex about this Luke 9 v 44.This is very powerful scripture actually all of Luke 9 kjv. They were arguing which was the greatest but Jesus takes a child and sets him by him which is prophetic of the H.G. the heavenly Child that is gonna be born in all of humanity. The greatest is the H.G. Child,scripture says they didn't understand the things he spoke of. It was not yet revealed unto them that a child was gonna be born to humanity the new birth ( the woman in Revelation 12 ). Listen to what Jesus is saying, Whosoever receives one one such CHILD IN MY NAME RECEIVES ME AND WHOSOEVER RECEIVES ME RECEIVES HIM THAT SENT ME.Jesus was plainly telling them there was a Child coming in his Name which is the H.G. Thats y he said that which is born of the spirit is Spirit via his seed the Word ( his sayings ).Thats y he said let these Sayings ( his words Seeds ) sink down into your hearts and ears initiating a birth of a BABY CHRIST IN THEM, the GREATEST is the Child the H.G.The son of man,man kinds fruit unto God. But they understood not the things that were spoken. It was not yet revealed unto them that his WORDS/SEEDS were gonna initiate a birth of CHRIST IN THEM th manchild which is the H.G. TH VERY KINGDOM OF GOD IN HUMANITY IS COMING VIA a SEED, THE BOOK, THE NEW COVENANT IS GONNA MAKE US Christs ( Gods ) If any man hears my words and keeps them My Father and I will come and take our abode with him via Hearing his voice ( the living word ).Everytime he refered to himself as the SON OF MAN he was trying to tell them something, Everybody is gona birth a baby Christ, that Woman in Revelation 12. the CHURCH. Thats y he took a Child and set him by himself and said whosover receives one such Child in my name receives me, just prophetic that there is a Child in our future near future which is the H.G, They were fearfull when he said he was gona be delivered into the the hands of men,But what he was refering to was his words/seeds were gona be delivered to the hands of men th Child

    I am researching this verse today because it seems opposite to me what I always assumed ... that a man may determine his immediate actions but the Lord decides where it all will lead him ...
  • Jones p t - in Reply on Luke 17:3
    Luke 17:35-36. To my understanding it denots the household works in afternoon. In olden times grinding works carried out in the afternoon by women. As also two men in the field denots the day time, works in the field. Luke 17:34 says : in that night there shall be two men in one bed. This is picture of the world when our Lord appears in the heaven. Our Lord come for the whole world. Then as usual half of the world is under night and other half - in day time.Luke 21:27 and then shall they see the son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. The sealing is already over and sealed will be transformed instantaneously and fly towards our Lord. When our Lord comes, saved and unsaved are intimately living together and only saved are transformed.It is a warning to all belivers for checking their names in the book of life and uptodate it now. It is our personal choice only. "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15.Believe in Jesus and keep his commandmends.Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 1John 4:15.
  • EJL - in Reply on Genesis 4

    On a purely Scriptural basis;

    Cain "brought of the fruit of the ground an offering to the LORD."

    Abel "he also brought of the FIRSTLINGS of his flock AND OF THE FAT THEREOF."

    Cain brought an offering that was average and common; as though he didn't care.

    Abel brought an offering full of love and respect.

  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

    17The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

    18The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

    19Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

    The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

    19He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

    20The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

    21My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

    12Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

    64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

    65And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Matthew 5:1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

    3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

    4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

    6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

    7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

    8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

    9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

    10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

    11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

    12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

    13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

    14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

    15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

    16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Matthew 5:1
    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

    21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Matthew 5:1
    There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

    2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

    3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

    5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

    7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

    8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

    9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

    10Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

    11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

    12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

    13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

    14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

    15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    18He that believeth on him is not condemned:

  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Matthew 5:1
    And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

    30For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

    31The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

    32The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

    33No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

    34The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

    35Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

    36If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
  • Sally on Isaiah 49:22
    What is THE "law of God"? Where can I find it in scripture? Is THE law of God more than the 10 commandments?

    Also; we are given "a portion of faith"...can we increase that portion?
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 4
    This has always been an intriguing portion of Scripture & you may get other views. But I consider Genesis 4:2-7 & Hebrews 11:4 together. Both Cain & Abel brought their sacrifices to the Lord as an offering (maybe a freewill or thanksgiving offering). But the Lord only had "respect unto Abel & his offering'.

    I detect that it was both the type of offering & the type of heart of the giver that comes to question. They were still largely vegetarians in those days, I would think, however, the killing of animals for their skins as garments, would have been necessary. It is also plausible that prior to using the skins, that Abel & maybe their parents, also offered up a 'blood' offering to the Lord, maybe for sin (an instruction from God prior to the giving of the Law?) or as thanksgiving.

    Hebrews 11:4: "By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh." Here we read that Abel made it to the Hall of Faith Heroes by reason of 'faith' unlike Cain. So here too, I see that a heart preparedness of Abel with his 'excellent' (acceptable) sacrifice of the "firstlings of his flock & of the fat thereof" engendered him & his sacrifice acceptable to the Lord. Whereas Cain came not in full measure of faith & thankfulness, & maybe for necessity's sake & an impure heart.

    I see a correlation to us, as we meet around the Lord's Table & as the Scripture asks us to "examine ourselves" first before coming & partaking. Maybe, Cain needed to do some serious introspection & considering his offering before approaching the Lord. But these are simply my thoughts for your consideration that I wouldn't compel upon you or anyone, as Scripture doesn't clearly give us all the details.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16
    That's a wonderful Psalm to conclude the day & I would think that by now you could repeat it by heart. And with a big AMEN at the end. The Lord bless you & continue to fill you with His Love & Assurance of His Presence.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    Karen, I don't read or refer to Ecclesiasticus (Ben Sira), however, there is similar verse in Isaiah 45:7: "I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things."

    To read that the LORD makes peace and creates evil can be disturbing to us. I checked on the Hebrew word for Evil as written in this verse: it is 'ra:'. And this speaks not of sin as we understand sin, but of 'adversity or calamity', as when 'evil (a calamity, suffering) may come upon us. So does God even do evil or want to do this to us? Well, He does, in a sense. In this context, it shows that when there is absence of Peace, whether in a person's heart or in worldly affairs, then there must be adversity. A little like Truth & Lies (they are 'absolutes'): if the Truth is not spoken, then the words must be a lie - and there cannot be a mix of Truth & Lies - then it's no longer Truth. So to, the presence of Peace cancels out 'evil'. So the opposite is true: if there is adversity, then no peace.

    So we can't understand this verse as God making it a point to create adversity (evil) for us, rather, that in the absence of His Peace, He permits adversity to be present. It seems to be our choice: if His Peace reigns in us, then no spiritual or emotional calamity will be ours. If we sin, if we're disobedient to His Spirit, then the result is turmoil within.
  • P T Jones on Matthew 13
    Matthew 13:8 - But other fell into good ground and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Why this fruit brought forth stated in descending order. To me it is effectiveness gospel in times. At the time of our Lord gospel was widely accepted. Then in tribulations it becomes sixtyfold and at present it is only thirtyfold only. The decrease in faith gradually evolved in church. Today preachers are enthusiastic, yet their fruitfullness is very low.Our Lord even asked in Luke 18:8- Nevertheless when the son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?. We are now sure that our Lord coming very soon. And also remember that "So shall my word goeth forth out of my mouth : it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I send it. Isaiah 55:11.In the present world only thirty percent believes in our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Adam and Eve had more kids, male and female. Remember, People back then lived a long time. Lots of time to reproduce. In fact God told them to.
