  • Israel - in Reply on Proverbs 5
    Keeping God's commandments is the safest place. His commandments keeps Israel from sin, no other nations. Not knowing Christ does not keep Israel in sin, Jesus Christ is Israel's Savior, He died so that Israel would be able to repent of their sins. Not keeping God's commandments is what keeps Israel on sin. Shalom

    lovely, i agree wholly with you. Amen.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ruth 3
    Irene, I think that some portray Ruth in that light, simply by the way she went about making herself known to Boaz. In the Deut. reference, the act appeared more lawful as the brother-in-law takes on the duty & responsibility to care for the widow & have his brother's name continue. Whereas in Ruth's case, even though Boaz was a near kinsman & had the right to marry her if he wished, her presence near him at night startled him, but he also knew the good intentions in her act. So, I agree with you, that Ruth shouldn't be seen in a bad light, but as an indicator to Boaz that she would like him to take on the responsibility of care.

  • Chris - in Reply on Daniel 3:29
    Nyodee, Daniel 3:23-25, speaks of this incident. Nebuchadnezzar certainly had no intimate knowledge of the True God, however, he might have been conversant with who this God of Israel was. He would not have known of the Son of God (Jesus), but probably referred to the fourth person in the fire as someone that was very near to or a messenger of God. As we see in verse 28, that he attributed the help given to the three God-fearing men, to an angel. He may also not know about angels, but purely a term used as a helper sent by God to His people.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 7
    Monica, you said that you've just started reading the Bible. Wonderful! Though, I hope you have first been going through the other books, particularly the Gospels, Genesis, the Psalms, and the writings by the apostles of Jesus. If you're tackling Ecclesiastes as one of your first books, it will be 'heavy going'.

    The writing of Ecclesiastes has generally been ascribed to Solomon, who was renowned for his wisdom in his position as King of Israel. The whole gist of the book was his very literal look at life as we see it at 'ground level'. Matters such as life's seemingly aimless cycles & unexplainable paradoxes, may cause us to conclude that all is futile since there is no purpose in the order of events. However, life is to be enjoyed in its fullest as a gift from God; and the wise person will live his life in obedience to God, recognizing that one day God will judge all men.

    So, I write the above, just to give you a quick outline of the book & Solomon's understanding of life, so I hope it helps you. In the reference to 7:15: Solomon looks at another of life's unexplainable facts: "life appears so meaningless & vain, when one considers a good person's life can see an early end in spite of his righteous living, whereas the evil person's life is extended in spite of his bad lifestyle". And this is a question asked by many: why do the righteous suffer & the wicked get away with it?

    Looking at it from an earthly & limited perspective, that is a valid question; so often the wicked prosper & the good person receives evil - it happens all the time. Remembering that Solomon is writing purely from a humanistic viewpoint, we can then appreciate his correct & spiritual perspective. He intersperses his book with reminders that God is still in control & seeks our attention. Probably, Solomon's concluding verses (12:13,14) highlight one's true response to the futility of life: fear God, keep His commands, await His Judgement. Now we have Jesus Christ, our Hope & Life.
  • Nyodee Barika Justice - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    Intercessory prayer indeed causes remarkable changes and when christians pray in one accord, miracles happens.

    But beyond this, its important to have Christ consciousness. Know who you are, your rights and place as a christian. As for me, the virus is not a factor because my body is the temple of the Holyghost, and the Holyghost cannot share or cohabit with corona or any sickness. Consistent declaration of the word of God concerning your body is the highest drugs there is.

    I am not happy with how some portray Ruth as prostituting herself for food. that's so unfair. Before putting her down why don't we try reading Deuteronomy 25:5----. Read and learn facts.
  • Chris - in Reply on Obadiah 1
    Arissa, I didn't realize that your comments came in three parts. Just a further comment on 'Scapegoat' in reference to Jesus. Again, with the meaning of Scapegoat, I can understand your application to our Lord, for indeed our Sins were placed upon Him at the Cross, but the whole idea of scapegoat (in particular reference to sin bearing, in the OT), was that one goat was the sacrifice for the sins of the people & the second goat had their sins transferred onto its head & then that goat was set free to run into the field or forest, never to return or to be retrieved back into the flock (Leviticus 16:5-22).

    In the case of Jesus' Sacrifice, the Lamb of the OT is a foreshadow of what Jesus was appointed by His Father to accomplish. That is, instead of the priests sacrificing a spotless lamb from the flock to give temporal covering for sin, God provided His Lamb, pure & sinless, from (within) Himself (His Word) to fully pay for & redeem sinners forever: and this Sacrifice was the only One acceptable for full payment. So again, I wouldn't see Jesus' Sacrifice as Him being our Scapegoat in its full & logical sense, rather our Sacrifice.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    DWL, I understand that verse to mean that YOU are that someone! Why you (and me)? Because we are the overcomers in our Christian walk on Earth & all that God has prepared for those who have loved & served Him faithfully are beyond the scope of our imagination & knowledge (1 Corinthians 2:9). And the opposite of those who inherit all things, are described in the following verse (21:8): and these inherit only what is store for them in the Lake of Fire.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 24:20
    John, that portion in Matthew 24 was Jesus' teaching to His disciples about the Tribulation & His Second Coming. I fully realize that many Christians attribute some of these portions of Jesus' teaching on His Second Coming, to the Church's preparedness for Anti-Christ, Great Tribulation & Rapture. However, I stand stoically on these portions, that the Lord actually described aspects of the Tribulation, & has nothing to do with the Rapture of the Church. The Rapture = Snatching Away, of believers was what was revealed to the apostle Paul (1 Thes 4:13-18; 5:1-11): refers to Christ's coming to snatch away His Church before the Great Tribulation comes upon the unbelieving world.

    So, looking at Matthew 24:20, I understand that Jesus was referring to the Jews at the time of Anti-Christ & the Great Tribulation, that they were to flee as fast as they could to hide from the desolation that was to take place. So the prayer that their flight (fleeing) would not be in Winter on a Sabbath day, was simply because of the harsh conditions of Winter & the legal requirements prohibiting travel, work & effort on the Sabbath for the Jews. So, rest assured that you won't need to be concerned about your flight into the hills, but the other imploring messages by the apostles, that our flight into the air to meet the Lord, will be certain because of our real & precious faith.
  • Chris - in Reply on Obadiah 1
    Arissa, that was an interesting read & also about those who hide "behind the mark of Cain".

    Just the matter of "scapegoat": as you know the meaning of that word is "a person (or, group) made to bear the blame for others or to suffer in their place". I can see how you interpret it this way, but I question whether Jacob was made a scapegoat & still enjoyed peace. I would not connect the meaning of Scapegoat to the situation described here. I don't think Jacob was a scapegoat: he did wrong in stealing his brother's blessing & therefore was advised by his mother to 'make a run for it', but Esau himself did foolishly, in selling his birthright for a some pottage in the first place. I don't see that either of these brothers were guiltless & so there was no transference of sin onto another. As well, Esau didn't do too badly himself, as he married & raised a large family & army & of course settled in Edom, becoming the father of the Edomites. Of course, all this was in fulfilment of God's Word to Rebekah in Genesis 25:23.

    Genesis 4:15: "...therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him". We don't know what type of mark this was, but most likely, "the LORD marked out Cain...", i.e. set Cain aside for Divine protection from his enemies, just as believers have been marked out with the indwelling Holy Spirit & His Seal upon them. So if any of these people you mentioned (KKK, Freemasons, Nazis, etc.) hide behind Cain's mark, that is of private interpretation, but it is certain, as you say, that all of these do hide behind the cloak of Christianity, & in so doing, not only bring the Name of Jesus into discredit & disgrace, but deceive our govts. & nominal Christians alike of their relevance & position in society. They (as we ourselves), have to stand before our Great Judge.

    Thank you for your thought-provoking Comment.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Luke 21
    Modern day Jews weren't around when the bible was written so I'm unable to give a reference in scripture to modern day Jews. The bible does refer to a specific race of people that God chose to be His people. These are Jews. They are His chosen people, and they are also called His elect. I take it you don't agree with that?

    From what I understand, God made a promise to His people in the Old Testament. The Jews are a protected race of people. They will never be eliminated because they are under God's protection. When Jesus comes at His second coming, every Jew alive will be saved.

    I do agree with you that claiming to be a Jew or Christian does not make it true. That's seems pretty elementary. And I do know about the Jews having a synagogue in Smyrna, but they were not believers.

    What I don't agree with is that ALL Jews deny Jesus. That simply is not true! If that's what you truly believe, then I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. And also, if they believed in Jesus, it still wouldn't make them a Christian. Unless a person has been born of God's Spirit, that person has an illegitimate claim at being a child of God, whether they be Jew or Gentile. Also, which synagogue should one call to ask if ALL Jews deny Jesus? My guess is that any Jew, Orthodox or Messianic, would tell you that there are some Jews who do not deny Jesus.
  • James brooks on Jeremiah 23:5
    Hi Mishael as far as why bad things happen to good people:There are no good people.There are people who do good things.In Mark10:17&18,when the man came running to Him,knelt before Him and asked Him,GOOD TEACHER what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? JESUS said to him Why do you call me good?NO one is good but One,that is GOD.So you see in order to be good you have to be good twenty four hours a day. See we can,t do that,only GOD can do that.But let,s try.

  • Adam - in Reply on Ephesians 6:4
    Also take a look at Matthew 13:57 - Jesus had the same problem with his family not respecting him.
  • Mishael To June - in Reply on Psalms 70
    June, I am sorrowful for the pain that you feel. People who race onward and do not carefully read each word on the creation of Adam and Eve, will miss out on the greater revelation.

    Genesis 2:7 And the Lord formed (mould) man of the DUST of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man (woman also later), became a living soul.

    Genesis 1:27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female.

    Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have DOMINION over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    God DID NOT give Adam dominion over OTHER men or women!!!!

    Just like everyone else that has lived prior and now, our color came from the same soil.

    Genesis 11:1-9 is the account of the Tower of Babel; which was for evil by Nimrod. God changed the language of the people from one to many. The Lord scattered them all over the earth. Nothing is said further about races or colors. It happened back in the soil God used. Adams name in original text means, RED. That doesn't mean Adam was Native American.

    You have full cause to be at peace with the color your ancestors were. Who knows what color Moses was, but he married a woman from Midian, which was predominantly dark skinned. His sister made a protest about it and God afflicted her with leprosy for a while. Keep reading, it's all true.

    Before God the creator, no one has ever had a right to persecute people of color. If they were reading the Bible rightly, they would know that; in their hearts.

    Satan has used his WILL to enter in and pervert the truth. People bought into it and it's been this color versus that color ever since.

    God is Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Spirit. Jesus is the Son of Man. (He has color)

    Believe the Bible, pass it forward. I thank God we're not all the same color! :D
  • Chris - in Reply on Ephesians 6:4
    Ann, if I could add here: you're an adult now, but bear in mind that your parents will always look at you as their 'little girl". Even if you were 60 yrs old & they were 90, you would be still considered in the same way. With that in mind, often parents fail to re-examine & revise their parental position & responsibilities when dealing with older, mature offsprings. Consider all the problems so many have with in-laws: it all boils down to, "I know what I'm doing, don't interfere in my family's matters".

    We sense your pain & frustration, even though you should accept that you are NOT insignificant to them, it's just that they fail to know exactly where to leave off their input to you & where their advice would really be needed by you. I'm sure you have valued their advice over the years, especially when you had your first child, but now you're feeling the pressure as their 'advice' still continues to swamp you unabatedly.

    As Adam has noted, we don't know all the circumstances involved here, but any advice given can only be of a general nature. I suggest that when they tell you what to do or how to bring up your kids, thank them for the advice & that you will take it away & give it due consideration (in this way, you are acknowledging their input & concern for you but you are the one who will take responsibility for the final decision).

    You will indeed need to consider their advice & be introspective & ask yourself whether they are right, even to some extent, or whether you need to change or do things differently, or if their advice was completely wrong. After due consideration, you can come back to them & relate how their advice has helped you, or how you have modified it, or in fact how you realize you could do things differently. What you are doing, is showing your appreciation for their concern & advice, yet demonstrating that YOU gave it due consideration & have made the decision & will act upon it. In this way, they & you will respect each other more.

    Jesse, where exactly does the Bible say the modern day Jews are the chosen people?

    Jesus in bible book Revelation 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

    Just because someone claims to be a Jew, or a christian does not make it so. All genealogical records were destroyed with the temple in 70 AD. So no one can prove they are Israel or not.

    Matthew 23:15 - Jesus speaks: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, (are a denomination of Jews) hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. (2X more the child of HELL?) does that sound like being a chosen people?

    In so called Jewish writings the Rabbis call Jesus one of the most evil antisemites who ever lived for daring to say these things. Go to the Jewish encyclopedia and look up YESHU (a curse) and you shall find that this refers to Jesus.

    Paul in 1 Thessalonians 2:14, 16 - For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, EVEN AS THEY HAVE OF THE JEWS: WHO

    BOTH KILLED THE LORD JESUS, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and THEY PLEASE NOT GOD, and

    are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: FOR THE WRATH IS COME UPON THEM TO THE UTTERMOST.

    When they reject the Son they reject the Father who sent the Son.

    They are the only group that commits the unpardonable sin of claiming Jesus did his miracles via the power of satan.

    Mark 3:30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

    Yes some shall come to the Lord at one point that is certain in scripture. But those who teach Jesus did miracles via the devil have their fate sealed and is a common teaching in Judaism.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 21
    The Holy Spirit is our Teacher. He's the revealer of scripture to our hearts and minds. He will not give 'meat' to a lambs (baby Christians.)

    Have you heard the words of the sword and the spirit? The Holy Spirit teaches us how to defeat Satan & his demons, in the spirit realm. Must have the armor of God on, to do spiritual warfare. Also, prayer and fasting: Daniel 10:2-3

    How many of you know well that it is harder to fight an invisible enemy? That's why we build ourselves up on the Word of God.
