  • Stanjett on Genesis 4
    But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. I can't understand why God had no respect to Cains offering. He was the first to offer something. Was it rotten? He didn't have to kill a poor innocent animal. Being raised on a Farm myself, we ate eggs from chic kens and mick from our cow. Well we did eat chickens but we would never eat our cow.
  • Sherry Ahmad on Psalms 41:3
    Is there another deeper mystical meaning for "Jesus make my dying bed", which is derived from Psalms 41:3?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 1:5
    That is true. In bible times ,the day was from evening to evening.
  • RFID microchips Mishael on Revelation 16
    You can actually go on YouTube and see people having RFID microchips put in their hand. It links to a honking big computer and the person doesn't have to use cash or coin. They just wave their hand at the chip reader.

    The technology exists already.

    As people have discovered, scar tissue forms over the microchip. Slicing that out will hurt! :(

    It's not going to be simple tattoos.

    How indeed do you think skin grafts of someone else's microchip can go offline from the computer and then be reconnected without showing up on a log or printout?

    If you know, write me back.

    PS. RFID implants were in the original Obamacare Package. Google it. It was taken out. People still get the implants so their bloodsugar can be monitored REMOTELY. Also find your dog or cat. Sounds like GPS Location technology, huh?

    Yep
  • Richard on John 1
    "When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

    Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

    For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

    In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

    But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

    Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

    And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created Him:

    Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

    Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

    Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

    And above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness."

    No need to hide, if you are saved. Bring it. If I'm killed I will go to the Lord. If not I will fight.
  • Mishael on Revelation 16
    They have the Bible in Youtube for those who can't READ a scripture on the page.

    One of my Stock sayings is: "My opinions and a buck+50 might get me a ride downtown on a city bus". Lolol

    My Dad taught me that.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    To have a contrite spirit means we feel guilt or remorse over our wrongdoing and seek repentance in place of our sin
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi William,

    I'm sure you're aware that many Christians would disagree with your saying that 'you cannot' go to hell. On the contrary, Jesus spent quite a bit of time in parables and teaching his followers (Christians) warning them against sinning. So, I'm not sure how you come to the conclusion that this young person is somehow immune from going to hell? It literally says in the Bible to fear the Lord. Jesus said that himself. Matthew 10:28

    Satan probably doesn't want people to fear Him though, he loves deceiving people into thinking they can sin all they want with zero consequence. The Bible already clearly says most people will go to hell- narrow is the way. And even not all Christians will get in either. Matthew 7:23. Some people should actually be afraid. But if we actually genuinely follow Jesus then we can put our faith and trust in Him and God's grace. Not all 'Christians' follow Jesus or try to avoid sin is the problem. It's especially concerning that people don't think they can commit blasphemy. It says clear as day that people who do this WILL NOT go to heaven. People have freewill and you don't know what they'll choose in the future. Even angels in heaven had freewill to sin and they did- hence satan and demons. God bless.
  • The Beast The Mark The Harvest on Daniel 1
    Revelation 14:9

    And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his MARK in his FOREHEAD OR IN HIS HAND.

    10 The same shall drink of the wine of the WRATH OF GOD, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb [JESUS].

    11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the MARK of his name. [666]

    Wesley's Notes for Revelation 14:10

    14:10
    He shall drink - With Babylon, #Revelation 16:19|. And shall be tormented - With the beast, #Revelation 20:10|. In all the scripture there is not another so terrible threatening as this. And God by this greater fear arms his servants against the fear of the beast. The wrath of God, which is poured unmixed without any mixture of mercy; without hope. Into the cup of his indignation - And is no real anger implied in all this? Anger that these refused to receive Jesus as Lord.

    Revelation 14:14 [Moment of the Rapture]

    And I looked, and BEHOLD A WHITE CLOUD, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man [JESUS], having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

    Commentary:

    People's Bible Notes for Revelation 14:14

    Upon the cloud [one] sat like the Son of Man. Jesus has himself said that the Son of man shall be seen coming upon the clouds of heaven. Here John sees the Son of Man sitting upon a white cloud. The Savior said that his coming shall be with great power and glory (Matthew 24:30). John now sees upon the head of the Son of man a golden crown. The Savior said that he will send his angels to gather the elect (Matthew 24:31). John hears an angel bid him who sat upon the cloud, to reap the earth, for its harvest was ripe.

    Mishael =This is why we pray to the LORD of the Harvest.

    I don't believe that for a second. Evil don't come from God. Evil comes from Satan.

  • Chris - in Reply on John 1
    As Freddieo has said, "God's Word is the most precious Gift given to us" in line with His Gift of His Son & His Spirit. Within His Word we read of Who God is, His dealings with people, His Plans for us now & in the future, His Words of help, guidance & comfort for us, & many more things. Those who don't read (& study) the Bible, are missing out on so much for their Christian walk & in knowing their God & Saviour.

    We can just read through its sacred pages, but must do it carefully, quietly & seeking the Spirit's help in understanding & applying what we read to our lives. Or, for those who have more time & desire, to study the Scriptures in depth so that much more can be learned which will strengthen their faith & also help others in spiritual need.

    God's Word is truly God speaking to us - it's alive, it's current, it's His speech to our hearts personally. When we read or study it, what we do is to allow God to communicate with our spirit & mind & direct our lives. So many believers languish for want of knowledge (Hosea 4:6 says that "God's people are destroyed (or, in a spiritual desert of ignorance & defeat) for lack of knowledge"). Also, as we read the Bible, wicked spiritual forces are thwarted from interfering with us as they can't bear to be under the sound of God's Word.

    We have no excuse today as the Bible is freely available in many translations but so many forsake it. In some countries in the past (& present) where Christianity & the Bible were forbidden, believers, able to find small discarded portions of the Bible, hung onto them, guarded them & read them over & over again, memorizing these few pieces from the Word & found spiritual sustenance from it.

    2 Timothy 2:15, 16: "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness." May the Lord help you & encourage you as you take time to read His Word.
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Matthew 5:1
    I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish. Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish. So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
  • Chris - in Reply on John 1
    Minnie, Paul in 1 Timothy 3:5, gives a long list of the condition of people's hearts 'in the last days'. Now these last days refers to the time after the establishment of the Church, post resurrection & ascension of Jesus Christ. Ever since that time, the moral & spiritual depravity of mankind has grown worse, as we even have evidence of it now. And we will see more of it, in the way people treat one another, no fear or remorse in inflicting pain or death on innocents, people who are full of themselves & prefer to put others down so they are raised up to be admired, given over to pleasure & satisfying the flesh instead of loving God & finding their delight in Him, etc.

    So Paul is reminding young Timothy to watch for these evil traits developing in people & to turn away from them, i.e. not to get caught up in their godlessness or even to be accepting of some of their behaviour. So in verse 4, he speaks of those who are "lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God" & continues on in verse 5: "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof...". So some of these same people who love worldly pleasure more than God, will also make themselves appear to others as good Church-going folk. And this would be so easy to accept since we can never know the full character of a person. But these same 'spiritual frauds' who may talk of God, go to Church or even read the Bible, will ultimately reveal that there may be substance but no Life or spiritual Power behind their lives (i.e. no true repentance, no re-birth, no Holy Spirit).

    This word from Paul I don't believe is given for Timothy or for us to go around casting judgement on people. But when this is evident (especially in the Church), we need to be aware of it (as the Church leader also), & either give gentle correction & guidance to the one living a double life, but if they shun correction, then Church discipline is in order (see a similar instruction by Paul in 1 Corinthians 5:9-13).
  • Jim on John 1
    In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. Jesus came to this sin cursed world to die for everyone. God gave his son up to die for a world of people that only see themselves as their own boss. Thinking that Jesus play no part in their live. Glory to God, our Lord and saviour. On judgement day let be ready to enter into heaven. Comment for st John 1

    Bronson, You do not go to hell for not perfectly living up to God's standard, in fact, you cannot. It is only by faith in Jesus Christ and His death and ressurection for your sin, that saves you. John 3:16-18,36. Romans Chapters 4 and 5. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. May He provide understanding and help to you in this matter.

    Re: the three Earth & heaven ages. I'm open to accepting this as a possibility simply because the Word is unclear on that period of time - only revealing what the state was in Gen chapter 1:1, 2 & the future renewal in Revelation 21. Whatever condition the universe & its worlds were in prior to Genesis 1 can only be speculation.

    Re: time period between Satan's rebellion & him being found in Eden. Genesis 3 is the first appearance of the Serpent as one of the animals in creation. Whether Satan who was cast out from Heaven (Isaiah 14) then was in Eden (Ezekiel 28) before man's fall or the other way around (i.e. he was first in Eden as God's cherub & then came his fall), I cannot ascertain from the Word - it's not clearly given.

    So when the Word is unclear, my rule is that I'm to remain in ignorance & not proffer an answer. However, when people give their answer to these & other biblical subjects & don't provide a scriptural argument for it, then it remains a theory & a dangerous stand & belief to maintain.

    Thank you EJL for your explanation & understanding of this passage. I re-looked at it 'through your eyes' & I'm still unable to apply your reference of Jeremiah 4:23-26 to God's speaking of the Earth's former condition. Rather, I see this passage as alluding to it in its specific description.

    My reasons are as follows: in prophetical writings, we have both the direct words of God to the prophet, whether words to the prophet or to the people. So in Jeremiah 4:1-9, we see God speaking to Jeremiah. Then from verse 10: "Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD!...": we see Jeremiah responding to God. At times he's speaking as from the Lord or he is quoting the Lord (e.g. v17).

    Then in verse 19, he exclaims: "My bowels, my bowels". This has to be Jeremiah's voice - I don't see God saying something like this: He never has before. Then verse 22 appears to be God's Words about these 'sottish' children. Verses 23-26 are now Jeremiah's "I behelds" as he envisions the destruction that will come to Israel & then v 27 qualifies that when the Lord says, "For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end." And this goes on in the following verses.

    So, I just can't see that this account relates back to God speaking about the Earth's former condition, but to Israel's future troubles. We may have to agree to disagree on that interpretation.
  • THE GOSPEL OF FEAR - in Reply on Revelation 16
    You are not an evangelist in any way. You're trying to spread hysteria and fear.

    YOU ARE NOT PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF

    JESUS CHRIST

    His virgin birth

    His sinless life

    His crucifixion on the Cross for the sins of all mankind.

    His Glorious Resurrection to Life, in the flesh

    Everything you are spreading to others is being recorded in a Book. Malachi

    If it doesn't look like a sheep, sound like a sheep, or Follow The Shepherd;

    It could be a goat. Matthew 26

    You must be Born Again, in order to understand the Bible. It is spiritually discerned.

    Rapture Movies are just Rapture Movies.

    It's not the Bible. It's meant to be an evangelical tool, to point people to the Bible.

    There is no scripture that tells us to stir people to to make plans to ride out the tribulation. The same people rioting in the streets, burning private property, shooting anyone who opposes them: will be doing the same after the rapture...only door to door; or be hirelings for Antichrist.

    On the other hand, it's good for people to see this example of THE GREAT FALLING AWAY of the false church. It has to come first.

    Compare everything being said in here with prophetic scripture FROM the Bible.

    Study the Falling Away

    Study what Apostacy is

  • Mishael on Revelation 16
    Antichrist is in-dwelled by Satan. Satan was an evil archAngel who was cast out of heaven. He cannot procreate or inseminate.

    Don't forget about the False Prophet who will turn all religions into one worldwide religion.

    When Satan gets through with Antichrist, it will happen at the Second Advent of Jesus.

    All 3 will be cast into hell for 1000 years.

The kjv copy we have is not the origingal the royal family has got the origingal kjv so does the vatican , they took those books out and apocrypha so that we be stuck in the the beast mind set. They took those books out on purpose and left 66 books so that we do not come to the understanding of the SIPRIT in TRUTH.. pray for understanding??? Jah bless
  • Sauls history with witchcraft - in Reply on 1 Samuel 16
    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you:

    1 Samuel 28 &

    1 Samuel 16:23

    And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

    1 Samuel 18:10

    And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.

    1 Samuel 16:14

    But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.

    1 Samuel 16:15

    And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.

    1 Samuel 19:9

    And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

    1 Samuel 19:20

    And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.

    1 Samuel 11:6

    And the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his ANGER was kindled greatly.

    1 Samuel 28:7

    Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.

    Acts 19:15

    And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

    >>Most of Sauls problems were of pride. The people wanted a King and God gave them what they wanted; which was for someone else to be a go-between so they didn't have to speak to God.

    Rebellion is AS the sin of witchcraft. Saul sought out witches.

    The day he "died" he prohibited the customary sacrifice to God for victory in Battle; and told the soldiers He would be their sacrifice! Saul and his 2 sons all died.

    Dear Sandra,

    "I see that the KJV says that the 666 will be put in vs. The NKJV says that the 666 will be put on the right hand or on the forehead.

    On or in?

    Why?

    Because, fake skin measures come in play to out wit satan. If it takes a fake 666 on The Body of Christ Members to have commerce and all without secret hiding places, since they can see underground even with drones, then so be it.

    What about those not in Christ to live without the 666 on or in them to see Jesus Christ Second return to then get in Christ?

    They survive the Anti-Christ reign to get it right in Christ by fake 666 ID theft measures?

    The computer chip has been implanted in years past in Europe, China, Russia and U.S.A. military and our pets in U.S.A.

    Many have already died or jailed in not taking this computer chip implanted into them. On U.S.A. radio ads it was advertisized to put this computer chip into our elderly to give them easier maintenance of their medical records. It has lithium with it when implanted. Some suspect vaccinations of coys to put this computer chip into folks, i.e. SARS2 vaccinations or flu shots."

    A contrite spirit is a broken heart that no one can understand or fix, except the almighty.

    He is waiting for us to recognise our faults/sins, that we have (all) broken the law, and come short of the glory of the Father.

    then we can repent with our heart's to come to our father as little children being born again in the spirit.
