  • Godwin Nnah on Ephesians 4:5
    Just to add to some comments above, regarding Sprinkling & Immersion baptism: Both are processes initiated by the Lord (God / Jesus). The most important thing is your soul and the spirit dwelling in you. In Acts - the jailor and his household (adults & infants) was baptised when instantly when Paul & Silas made him knew they did not ran away from prison. It was not immersion; but was recorded and they gave their lives. The Eunuch with Philip was baptised while on their way (without necessarily passes through church protocols); he gave his life.

    What is important here as a Christian is to recognize your sins, drop them before the Lord. See yourself as an unworthy person who needs mercy from God and who has done something wrong knowingly (as a youth/adult) and unknowingly (as a child/infant/ignorant of the laws); thereby requesting for grace, mercy and compassion from the Lord.

    God has shown his love for man in that while Abraham gave-up Isaac for the sacrifice in obedient to God's demand for testing of his faith, God gave His only begotten Son (born & not created) to save mankind, sending the Holy Spirit to confirm the Son's authority.

    This is why when Christ was baptised, A voice came from heaven (Father) declaring Jesus (His Son), and a dove patched on Jesus (Holy Spirit) to show what is later termed as "Trinity" by the Orthodox churches. We must seek salvation and the door of salvation is always open to them that seeks grace, mercy and God's love. Remain blessed in Jesus Name - Amen.

    what rude comments in my time of sorrow. I am of the black race, & what does race have to do with it?? If my fore parents did wrong and it affected my children there is nothing i can do about it. God is God and he knows what is best. God saved my son from death and this i am most grateful for. Everyone gets their KARMA and my son is the kindest person you ever meet, not because its my son. You have a good life.

    good morning, thank you for your kind words
  • MONICA on Ecclesiasticus 7
    It's my first time to read the bible and ECCLESIASTICUS has motivated me a lot......I'm just requesting if there is anyone who can help me understand chapter 7 :15

  • RobesonTeresa on Mark 5:10
    It is worthwhile to complete things that are worth starting and ending. Smart people always do things from beginning to end.

    Romans 11:25-32



    For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

    Praise GOD who is rich in His Mercy and His Grace for all of us. Maybe the key lies with "Patience" for all not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to faith in JESUS also as written above thru our mercy.
  • Ann Hering - in Reply on John 5:43
    God has NOT cast away His people Israel!

    Romans 11:1

    I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham of the tribe of Benjamin.

    Israel stumbled at the cross, and fell at the stoning of Stephen.

    BUT through their (Israel's) fall, salvation came to the Gentiles through the apostle Paul and the gospel, believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, all by grace through faith.

    God will resume His prophetic program with Israel after The Body Of Christ is raptured (taken) out of the way.
  • Ann Hering - in Reply on John 5:43
    Jesus Christ is Creator God.

    Lucifer is a created being.

    Not the same!
  • Ann Hering - in Reply on John 5:4
    The tares are Israel who DID NOT believe that Jesus was The Christ (Messiah) of God.

    The wheat are Israel who DID believe that Jesus was The Christ (Messiah) of God.

    At the harvest of the world, at the end of the Tribulation, angels are the reapers, tares are gathered and burned, wheat are left.

    The Rapture is a Mystery revealed to Paul for the Body Of Christ, both Jews and Gentiles, who believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, by grace through faith.

    Two different programs!
  • Ann on John 1:12
    God has allowed the light who is Jesus into the life of the one that has believed and received the grace,of becoming his own children,the lord himself declares them not been born in flesh nor by man bt through his power and might....this indeed shows how God is great and beyond human understanding....for he made everything out of his word to come into existence,he also tried to find out how this word could reach his people,so he found it perfect to form the word in flesh bt full of his power and spirit,and sent it to live among us,Jesus christ our lord...indeed he is a powerful God
  • James brooks - in Reply on Job 34:10
    I am no Prophet;but I do Believe there is a message in what we are going through the whole world right now.And I hope and pray that we don,t miss the message,as individuals,as a nation,and all over the globe;And especially the CHURCH.Is this a plague?I don,t know.I do know that GOD warned and punished through plagues(if don,t let my people go;speaking to pharaoh).I believe in my heart GOD is saying ,turn to me you unsaved,and to you the saved but back slidden,turn back to me.2chronicles 7:14;if my people who are called by name humble themselves,and pray and seek my face and turn from there wicked ways,then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.(Jeremiah 25:5 says Turn now everyone of you,from his evil ways,and evil deeds,and dwell upon the land that the LORD has given to you and to your fathers from of old and forever).Jeremiah 26:3 says;it may be they will listen,and every one turn from his evil way,that I may relent of the disaster that I intend to do to them because of their evil deeds.so I say let,s take down the things in our lives that we give a higher priority than we give GOD.Let,s LOVE(I capitalize LOVE because GOD is LOVE)with all our Hearts, with all our minds, bodies,and souls.Look at ourselves ; Do we love HIM?or is it all lip service?Do we put our money,our pleasures,our luxury homes and cars jewelry,and yes the economy;all of that on the throne of our hearts where GOD should be.Give GOD HIS rightful place in your life.In our in our minds, in our

    hearts,in our bodies,and souls.HIGH AND LIFTED UP IS OUR GOD.LET us pray without ceasing.
  • Shelagh on Revelation 14
    While reading chapter 14 Revelations I was worried about the number of those saved 144000 thousand only who had the mark of the lamb ? Isn't this the teachings of the Jehovah witness bible? I was brought up by knowing that all who believes in Jesus and follows Him will be saved ?? I have a Holy Bible but I cannot find the Nihil Obstat nowhere in the book . Does this mean it's not a Catholic Bible? It's ESV version . What is worrying is that I bought it from a Catholic church ?? Thank you xx

  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Garry, as you've read in the Scriptures (Exodus 3:14), that God gave Moses this Name, "I AM that I AM" when Moses was called to go to the children of Israel to explain to them Who this God was that spoke to him & what He was about to do for them. And so God gave them the Name that they would know Him by. They would have previously known God by the Name Elohim or El Shaddai: God Almighty, but through the passage of time, their memory (& love) faded for Him. But now, God says that I want them to know Me by this Name.

    In Hebrew, this Name is, "Ehyeh asher Ehyeh" & the direct English translation is, "I will be what I will be". However, we generally understand it to be, "I AM what I AM". And then to explore this Name further, we find that it encompasses other aspects of God's Being. Therefore, to fully realize the Fullness of His Name, we could describe it as: "He is the self-sufficient, self-sustaining, self existent God Who was, Who is, and Who will be". The meaning also conveys: He has dominion over all things, the Source of His Power, and His Eternal Nature. (Note, this extended description copied from Bible Study Tools). This meaning, was to Israel, an understandable description of the God Who has sustained & Who will carry them out of their oppression in Egypt.

    However, to leave this Special Name without its full application would be irresponsible. Jesus often uses this term, mostly in a general way when seen in the Gospels, but more specifically in Revelation 1:8, 11, 17 & others, where His usage of I AM, is clearly to denote His equality with the Father (The I AM) & a veiled reference to Jesus' Creative Work with the Father (Genesis 1:26).
  • Mishael TO Elizabeth - in Reply on Job 34:10
    I've been praying and studying about JOB, because we have something in common. I think I know why Job lost everything and everyone he loved. The answer may come from a dark place called, "why did this happen to me? The faithful believer?

    People have made lots of money writing those, 'WHY do bad things happen to good people, who do good things, books.'

    How very deeply we bury things we don't want to see.

    If we would search hard enough and submit to be searched by the Holy Spirit, he will reveal a gem.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Luke 21
    Muslims honor Jesus as a sinless prophet and that is the end of it. Jews are antichrist by Bible definition

    1 John 2:22 - Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (ALL Jews deny Jesus and that makes them antichrist, if they believed in Jesus then they would be CHRISTIANS. IF you do not believe me call any Synagogue and ask them if Jesus is the Messiah.)

    1 John 2:23 - Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

    If Jews do not accept Jesus as messiah, then who is their messiah?

    1 Corinthians 16:22 - If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema (CURSED) Maranatha.

    DO JEWS LOVE JESUS OR ARE THEY CURSED?

    Indeed we shall, God's child. The Bible reminds us (1 Corinthians 12:26), that "when one member (of Christ's Church) suffer, all members suffer with it". So your pain & inability to deal with this situation is felt & so we will pray.

    It is particularly sad that he also preaches from the Word of God, so we can only trust the Spirit to convict him as he meditates on the Word. It is also such a sad thing, when there are so many men in particular, who seem to overlord it over others; and the more painful, if this happens in holy marriage. This is a nasty characteristic that could show a deficiency in their own understanding or appreciation of themselves, or even if they have been dominated in earlier years, & so the response is now an overbearing, superior attitude over others to compensate.

    He may not even be aware that he is doing it to you or that his behaviour is affecting you so badly, but if he wants to take his marriage seriously, he needs to deal with this issue in himself first. Anyway, I'm sure a good Christian counsellor or mature Pastor/elder will be able to help him & you work through all this. Is your husband approachable in this matter? Will he talk it over with you or a Christian counsellor? Is he even aware of your hurt feelings? I'm not asking for answers here, just questions for you to consider.

    And you shouldn't allow your self-esteem to diminish due to his behaviour or in your presence with others. We are the Lord's purchased possession, & you have qualities & inner beauty from God not seen in so many others. (Proverbs 31:10, 25, 26, 30; 1 Peter 3:2-4, are a few Scriptures to show the true beauty that God looks for & blesses). Commit all these matters to the Lord, as I'm sure you are, & let the Beauty of the Lord fill you & your husband's vision, that he might have a Heavenly perspective & not of the Earth or himself. May the Lord help you mightily as you daily trust Him.
  • Barbara Butler on Psalms 27
    Psalms 27 is my favorite psalm. It is so inspiring and uplifting. God is always near, and He is always watching over us. When it seems that there is no one to cling to, hold on to God..... He never leaves or forsake us! EVER

    I'm sorry I was actually talking about the negative thoughts. I just reread it.. thanks for your prayers.
  • Adam - in Reply
    Hello, I will pray for you and I'm sure others who visit this page will do the same. Thank you for taking the risk to share your prayer request. The only thing I don't understand is this:

    "He says he loves me and that I'm beautiful but those thoughts are very painful y'all."

    Your husband saying he loves you and thinks you're beautiful is a 10/10 positive comment. All wives wish their own husbands would say that to them and yours has, so that is amazingly positive. So, in the event you interpret those positive things as being 'painful' then I would seek some counseling to dive into exactly why you interpret it that way. If maybe you meant that he said those positive things despite other negative things then that would make more sense for why you would still feel hurt from other unresolved matters which still need to be expressed and dealt with. May God bless you...
  • Blake Haynes on Hebrews 10:39
    We who believe to the saving of the souls shall be able to do this because of the Lord preparing the way before us as when we by faith accepted the truth of the price paid by His blood. We were chosen though unworthy so that in the time appointed we would fall back into faith and choose salvation of the soul.
  • Harvey herie on Proverbs 8
    why is this confusing chapter 8 is writhen by the son of gods word to his people and all you have to do is find him if you want to live on. there is only one savior his name his Jesus Christ there is no other be saved
  • Jesse - in Reply on John 19
    Marie,

    I am one of those that believes Jesus was crucified on a Friday and rose Sunday. My reasoning for this comes from the account given in John Chapter 19, and then the first verse in John Chapter 20. We know from Chapter 19 that He died on a Friday sometime between 3pm and 6pm.



    John 19:31 gives us a clue as to the day Jesus was crucified. It had to be on a Friday because they had to be dead before the Sabbath day which would begin at 6pm on Friday and go to 6pm on Saturday. We see in Chapter 19 that they came to break the legs of all three because they were still alive. But when they came to Jesus to break His legs, He was already dead.

    It was against Jewish tradition for anyone to be hanging on a cross on the Sabbath (Saturday). The book of Deuteronomy gives us a list of codes. One of them is that cursed is everybody that hangs on a tree, especially on the Sabbath Day.

    John 20:1 begins by saying the first day of the week, but it literally says "the first of the Sabbath's," plural! In the scriptures, the Sabbath Day is singular, and the weekdays are plural. So you have the Sabbath Day, and then you have the Sabbath Days, which are used to denote the weekdays.

    This is the first day of the week. This is Sunday. The scripture tells us that this Sunday is the first Sunday after Passover, which means the Sabbath of Saturday, the normal Sabbath, has passed. And now we are into Sunday. To understand the Friday to Sunday time frame, you have to count Friday as being day 1, Saturday, day 2, and then Sunday would be the 3rd day, the day Jesus rose.

    Hope this helps!

    Hebrews 12:1: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patient the race that is set before us.KJV.

    As we slow down and practice social distancing; Oh God, Help us to take the time to Pray and ask You to Help those around us-- Especially Healrh Care Workers, And those who help bring Food and Care. God Bless our Mothers and Fathers and whoever helped us. Those who Loved us-- and have Helped So Unselfishly. IN JESUS HOLY NAME. AMEN. MAY GOD ALWAYS BE IN YOUR LIFE AND HEART IN EVERYTHING YOU DO IN THESE DAYS OF UNCERTAIN TIMES WE NOW LIVE IN. LIVE EACH DAY TO THE FULLEST:
  • Jim on Jeremiah 23:5
    False prophets have been telling lies sense the beginning. What has happen at Samaria, with the idolatry happen everywhere the word was preach. Man are tempted by too many temptations. That why God give us the ten commandments,that we must obey. If God would have punished man for every little thing,on one would be here today. Thank you father for your mercy and grace, you kept given us chance after chance. Now the coronavirus, what a wake up call.if we all shall repent and pray and turn back from our wicked ways the Lord will heal the land. Comment for Jeremiah 23 chapter.

  • DAVID on Exodus 3
    I believe the greatest danger we are exposed to is there are to many people who want to have Jesus as their savior without having his father as their GOD
  • Evangelist Alicia Garth on Romans 8:22
    And too, could it be that the Heavenly Father is in great anger because humanity won't turn back to Him. Times after times after times He have sent warnings. He wants us to come back to Him. By repentance, that's the ONLY way. We can't come to the Father but by Jesus Christ.

    We have seen plaque after plaque after plaque so now the whole world is in time out. From Genesis to Malachi, From Matthew to Rev. We still said, not now God. BUT God is saying, get in the corner and be quiet. It will leave to go out from under the blood, you may DIE. Stay inside and live.

    Read Galatians 6:7 Read 2Peter 3:9 and of course Read 3:10.
  • Lex Lothar on 2 Chronicles 35:12
    Today's reading in 2 Chronicals Ch.34 & 35 is the most applicable to our Covid 19 plague that this very day is upon our world; so could it be that "Those Who Read Shall Not Fail"

    (The most humble Prophet Isaiah's inspirational WARNING to all generations) in these most beautiful words, that should be our rallying call to do just that ..for during such a time when even "gathering together the faithful of The Lord" has been taken away from us; therefore, how profound that this day's reading, (and the forthcoming readings) will Bless Us All - as God's wrath is set aside; and soon we shall see Him in the clouds of Great Glory, proclaiming to His people:

    "WELL DONE GOOD & FAITHFUL SERVANTS OF GOD" !!!!!

    And until that moment, (as we wait on the Lord) may this Daily Reading and adherence to it, be the renewed and ultimate sacrificial fasting of all time - so Our God answers mightily - but let us do so without excuses, since many are now home-bound, and men's hearts are quaking (" earthquakes in many places ")

    as was also prohecised ...and here we are, awaiting for the outcome of things, while the rest of the world remains in fear anxiously !!!

    Let us remember also that "God wills that ALL be saved" - so let's pray fervently, my Borthers & Sisters who continue The Good fight, by putting on "The Armor Of God" DAILY WORD !!!
