  • Alex on Luke 23
    comment on Psalms 78 and Matthew 13 kjv I will open my mouth in a PARABLE i will utter things kept SECRET from the foundation of the world Jesus was releasing his secret in the parable of the sower and his seed which is the living word th new covenant. God is gonna put his Words/seeds in our hearts and minds initiating a birth of Christ in Mankind AS THE FIELD IS THE WORLD .Jesus is gonna utter Gods simply b/c his words/seed are the very seeds of God,I have said meaning his Words are the very seeds of God,I have said ye are Gods thats y he is saying to whom the Word came ( his seed ) ye are Gods And the scripture cannot be broken. Jesus even tells us the good seed are the children of the kingdom i.e his seed are Children not flesh and blood children but heavenly children th H.G CHILDREN as that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the H.G. THATS THE CHILD he was refering to when he said whosoever receiveth one Child in my NAME recieves ME.When he Said i have Said ye are Gods ( Said implies his breath ). Not only is Jesus God but his breath, his Word is the very seed of God and this cannot be refuted as it was the great Promise the multiplication of God remember God the father swore by his very self when he made the PROMISE that Christ wd be multiplied as the stars of heaven thus the sower and his seed is the secret and is about the multiplication of God inhumanity as the field is the world. And thats y Jesus refers to the H.G as the Promise ,the H.G is the offspring of Jesus meaning his seed the PROMISE,Jesus cd not refer to the H.G as the promise if he were not his offspring the Granson. the Israel of God. Without Jacob the Granson in the Abrahamic trinity there cd not have been a Nation of israel. Thus there cannot be an Israel of God without the heavenly trinity simply b/c Christ is gonna be multiplied as the stars of heaven which is the Israel of God thus the sower and his precious seed the Word th new covenant ( the book ) in Gods right hand. gbu

    I think that the days are straight forward up to

    Genesis 2:4

    and then ADAM and Eve was the first generation; and God walked with Adam and gave instructions to him; and created Eve for Adam etc

    I hope that my comments come out in orders and that they are helpful in understanding these 2 chapters of the BiBle

    Hi Deannea,

    You have a noble desire, and I trust God will help you.

    This website's verse of the day is beautiful. "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Jeremiah 33:3 God bless you in your battle!

  • Carlos Ramirez Trevio on Matthew 24:29
    A study of the metaphorical reference to stars in the Bible, shows that stars are iften a reference to people, not just physical heavenly bodies, such as stars, meteors, planets.

    See examples in:

    Revelation 1:20

    Jude 1:13

    Nahum 3:16

    Judges 5:20

    Revelation 9:1
  • Carl - in Reply on Revelation 12
    We have a beautiful promise in Romans 8:26 "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

    God bless according to your need.
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 2
    In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth.

    People sometimes have trouble with chapter 1 and 2 and so maybe it is best to take it from the beginning, and look at one verse at a time. I love this particular one as it could not have been said any better. In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth. It doesn't say when the beginning was, not yet; but later we will see He created "lIght', and dIvided it from darkness and so the beginning was the first day. Genesis 1:5
  • Carlos Ramirez Trevio - in Reply on Matthew 24:29
    Interesting observation by Peter Walton on an event that occurred in 1833, when the earth was showered with a spectacular display of meteors penetrating the atmosphere.

    But is that what Christ was referencing in Matthew 24, when He spoke of stars falling to earth?

    Is the reference to stars a reference to actual meteors, or is it a metaphorical reference to something else?

    I think a study of Revelation and other passages in Scripture will lead us to the conclusion that the stars, in the context of Matthew 24, was more a reference to people in positions of leadership. Don't we often, for example, refer to someone with great talent or accomplishments as a Star?

    See Numbers 24:17, for example. Here, Jesus is described as a star. See also Daniel 12:3. The reference to the stars, just as to the Sun and the Moon, might best be understood as a reference to people, governments, heads of state, people of influence.

    Jesus was the Bright and Morning Star.

    SO WELL SAID

    God created, one must know how to create in our own lives. Speaking those things into existence that one truly desires, then knowing what is good and speaking good over our creations
  • Alex on Luke 23
    Jesus had some secrets that he did not reveal about the kingdom, that it wd come as a birth via a seed in mankinds hearts,but it was hid from the wise and prudent but revealed unto babes,the babes are spritual babes that are gonna be BORN in US ( THE HEAVENLY BIRTH ) Ya gotta realize there is a Child coming that is gonna be born in US via his seed,it was not even revealed unto the disciples at that time,When they argued amongest themselves which was gonna be the greatest Jesus took a lil child and set him in their mists, it was prophetic that he is gonna put a Child in our mists in our hearts which is the H.G. and that is who is the greatest but that was the secret our new innerman which answers to the NEW BIRTH,THAT NEW CREATURE. Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision impling neither jew nor gentile but a new creature which is the H.G. That is new to us but is Old being he was with GOD b/f the world was.Out of their hearts they shall bring forth things new and old thats our new innerman that new creature but is really old since he was preordained b/f the world was.We were all born by the will of some man its only our new innerman that is born by the will of God,not a flesh and blood but a spritual being his name sake. Who is my Mother them that hear the word/seed and keeps it that will initiate a birth of Christ in us thus we are his mother spritually speaking.She brought forth a man child that is gona rule all nations,humanity is that woman that is gonna birth Christ in our hearts and minds thus he is truly the Son of Man ( mankinds fruit unto God ) My lil children of whom i travail in birth till Christ is formed in you. gbu
  • Carlos Ramirez Trevio on Matthew 24:29
    To better understand Matthew 24, we should start by reading verses 29-30, then go back to the beginning. And as we read and examine the admonitions of Christ in this Chapter, we should keep reflecting on these two pivotal verses.

    It is unquestionably the case, that Matthew is written for the followers of Christ. Whether the theme is the Jewish lineage of Christ or fulfillment of OT Messianic prophecy, Matthew was written for the Believer.

    And that is how the Chapter begins. Christ outlines the events preceding His Return and the end of the age. These are two conjunctive events that are dependent on eachother.

    This is the only place in the entire Bible where it identifies a specific time for the Return of Christ. And it is Christ Himself who tells us, His Disciples, when He will Return.

    First, He identifies several things that will happen. One is the spread of the Gospel throughout the world. Then the Revelation of the AntiChrist, as he sits in the Holy of Holies in the Temple in Jerusalem and proclaims himself God.

    Daniel 7-9, 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation 13, among others, help put this in perspective for us. The Abomination, the AntiChrist enters the Temple to desecrate it, in the middle of the week. That is, 3 1/2 years into the Tribulation.

    The act that desecrates the Temple, initiates the Great Tribulation. That latter half of the 7 year Tribulation will last approximately 3 1/2 years more.

    Then, Jesus emphasizes, then and only then, you will see me Return. Don't be fooled, Jesus cautions. I will Return IMMEDIATELY AFTER all these things. Not before, AFTER. IMMEDIATELY AFTER the Great Tribulation of those days.

    Keep in mind that this is the only place in the entire Bible were we are given a specific time for the Return of Jesus. And it is Jesus Himself who tells us. Don't be fooled, Jesus cautions.

    After the Great Tribulation we will be gathered up to meet Jesus in the air. See similarities in language with 1 Thess 4 and others.
  • Obbie Beal on Mark 13
    29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

    Note: I was so busy with 8-5 /job making sure money flowed to maintain the american dream. 75% of the dream was having perishable stuff /idols that rust or moths eat up. I was so busy I did not realize the TRUTH in 28-29 above. Thank GOD for HIS WISDOM. WISDOM to both know and understand TIME is NIGH exactly like 29-29 bare witness to. Never-the-less John 3:16-21 is waiting on all who is willing to follow IT's instructions because The return of JESUS is NIGH. Also 31 above is TRUTH.

  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 2
    I don't find it confusing as it sorts of or do give an outline in Chapter 1 I think as any book well written. Then in chapter two, it follows up. Just read it in the order given but realize that it does not cover everything, and it high lights what God considered important at that time; and now. Then it probably expands as it goes once again considering what God considers important; and of course that would remain the same as for today. I think that that is the way that I look at it, not sure if it is of course as I never thought about it before; however, it all makes sense to me; and i hope some day, to you also.
  • Peter on Genesis 2
    and man became a living soul. What do we know from Adam about living souls? We know that Adam could talk with God and he was a little lower than the angels and that he was good when he was created; and also that he would have treated his wife good and like all those other words that cleave to or unto means. He didn't think or at least not very much as he just did what God told him over and over ab and that was suppose to be have dominion of the animals and etc.. as it says. etc....

  • Etta - in Reply on James 1
    Dearest Patty,

    I was drawn to your beautiful sonnet, and touched by your authenticity, but I do not believe God intends His children suffer needlessly. I'm here for you, any time you need someone to just listen.

    Etta
  • Etta - in Reply on Romans 9:13
    First, this verse isn't talking about physical birth but spiritual adoption, when looking at verse 3 through verse 5.

    [3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: 4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertained the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.]

    We must be careful in taking a single verse out of Scripture out of context, and yes, God IS infinite, and all knowing, this Scripture isn't talking about His supremacy, nor even predestination, but the grace and mercy of God.
  • Adam - in Reply on Romans 9:13
    Hi Art, I'm not seeing anything about predestination in that verse or the chapter. What did you read that led you to draw that conclusion? Does God not give people freewill?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Mark 9
    Greetings Patti, Elias is the Greek rending of the name. Thus proving the new testament was written in Greek, not Hebrew as some claim. Many of Paul's letters or epistles were to Churches in Greek cities, Ephesians, Corinthians etc.
  • Chris - in Reply on Mark 9
    Patti, you're correct, Elijah (Hebrew) is the same as Elias (Latin/Greek). In Hebrew, his name is actually Eliyyahu, which means "Yahweh is my God", but we say, Elijah, for easier vocalization in English. In Arabic/Urdu, it is, Ilyas.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 13
    In Ezekiel 13, the prophecy is against the prophets who prophesy "out of their own hearts & wills" (v 2) & not from God's Word to them. Apparently, both men & women were guilty of this despicable act & the warning was to the men (vv 1-16) & also to the false women prophets (vv 18-23).

    It is difficult to interpret verse 18 correctly, as commentators have given several meanings, but it appears that as a result of false prophetic utterings, both the men & women claiming to give the people God's Word, were doing so using divination & occultic practises (vv 6-9, 23). So verse 18 seems to refer to one such practice employed by the 'women prophetesses', that is, those "that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?"

    It seems that these women graphically portrayed their authority from God & message of peace ("which see visions of peace for (Israel), and there is no peace" v 16). They wore veils (kerchiefs = handkerchiefs) over their heads pretending to be in touch with God & also resting comfortably at their tables (pillows at their 'elbows' = armholes = armpits) visually indicating the continuing peace & security of Israel (vv 10,11). All this is false prophecy the LORD had declared, rather, Israel would suffer much pain & hardship (vv 10-15).

    I hope that I have given you as close an understanding to your query, though I remain open to other people's interpretation to this.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Hi Wanda, yes, it's always good to learn what the Bible says to us & to be able to discuss its Truths & learn from them. In reading Genesis 3, I do believe that both Adam & Eve were present during Satan's approach to them, to tempt them to sin. And yes, both of them knew that the fruit of that particular tree was forbidden by God for them to eat. Not that the fruit was bad & could cause them harm, but it was God's test of their obedience to their Creator.

    And of course, the old Serpent was not far away to entice these sinless souls to committing sin so that now the sinless became the sinner, & so sin passed onto the rest of their descendants (us) through the flesh so tainted (Romans 5:12). Satan was also around in this manner (as you may remember), when Jesus, God's sinless Son, was also tempted (Matthew 4:1-11). Jesus was tempted on all points as we are (Hebrews 4:15): "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life". (1 John 2:16), but unlike Adam & Eve, He resisted Satan's thrusts & relied on God's Word, the Sword of the Spirit, to thwart Satan's offerings to Him. So now, all who believe on Jesus & trust Him for their salvation, are made new creations (2 Corinthians 5:17) who still have the body of sin, but now a new enlivened spirit touched by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:9).
  • Chris - in Reply on Zechariah 6
    Your observation is correct, in that there is no further mention of the red horses after 6:2.

    However, in Zechariah 1:8-10, mention is made of "a man riding on a red horse". Now whether this horse has any bearing on the one seen in 6:2, is not certain, though in both references, the riders are identified as from God "and who walk to & fro through the Earth" (1:11 & 6:7).
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Etta, you've raised a valid point, that there are many around us, even amongst believers, who remain fearful & perplexed as to the present pandemic & to what will happen in their 'future' & in the world. True, we can either sit in a corner & fret, or we can be encouraged from God's Word & His Spirit, to us being in the centre of His Will, in His Love & in His Care, no matter what transpires from all this.

    And of course, to those without Christ & without hope, what an opportunity to share the news of salvation & to demonstrate our confidence & hope in the Promises of our King. The unbeliever looks at this turmoil in the world & their lives as devastating without any good coming out of it (except for cleaner air & nature returning back to normality), but for us, this time is precious as we take stock of our own faith & real focus in life and the opportunity that God gives to others, to hear His Message of Salvation that gives true Hope in the midst of their crumbling world.
  • Art - in Reply on Romans 9:13
    What God is telling us here is that we don't really have a free will. We come predestined - our lives determined in advance by divine will or fate.
