  • Omadath Sibaran on Matthew 17:5
    What do they mean when someone says they plead the blood of Jesus or they cover something or someone with the blood.

    I thought that Jesus blood was shed for sins only. The lamb of God that came to take away the sins of the world
  • Obbie Beal on John 16
    33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in ME ye might have PEACE. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    Note: this PEACE (from GOD & through JESUS) is assured too us by JESUS, never-the-less we allow ourselves to become wrongly-entangled with a false or man-made peace from such things as education, jobs, 401K, IRA, money, stuff, thereby not being mindful we selfishly become addictive to them and chase them many years to discover (some never discover) we wasted years of our life on things that will not matter nor value nothing when tested by GOD.
  • PART ONE THE HOLY SPIRITS GIFTS - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    Acts Chapter 10

    44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on ALL of them which heard the word.

    45 And they of the circumcision (the JEWS), which BELIEVED were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles ALSO was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    46 For they heard them speak with TONGUES and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

    47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

    Truth is that THE HOLY SPIRIT has gifts; that we can ask for and receive. Get knowledge in 1 Corinthians chapters 12-14.

    Generally speaking, people who are not sure about it, and do not have all the scripture laid down within; are sometimes afraid, the whole experience is daunting.

    Tongues can be different: some speak another language, some people groan loudly: some speak as the Holy Spirit gives you an utterance. If it's prophetic, there will be 2-3 other prophets in the house who will know if that Word is from God, or out of a persons flesh. If there are no prophetically gifted people in the service; there will be no interpretation of the tongue. All must be done IN ORDER.

    Just sitting in your prayer closet, praying in tongues makes no sense to your conscious mind, BUT does edify your own spirit. All the fatigue of all kinds drains away and then you feel energized. Angels harken to the Word of God, spoken.

    I pray in tongues in my car, because people drive suicidal or homicidal. I drive with the angels. :D

    It's not going to make sense to your brain (soul). It is your spirit that is being built up. Read all scripture on this. When you are positive this comes through the Holy Spirit that in-dwells within yourself spirit; you will someday ask the Holy Spirit for His gift, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It will happen when you are praying or quietly reading the Corinthian chapters I mentioned. Just be open to the Holy Spirit. :)

    Wow. There is a lot of Life between your lines. As a Christian for the purpose of the Gospel I have only spent a few weeks here and there. Mostly have raised a family. My youngest is 14 and oldest is 19, everyone still lives at home which is great in my mind and heart. I have always made a living somehow related to food, whether in transportation, sales or these days, food manufacturing.

    Thank you!
  • PART TWOA RHEMA WORD FROM GOD - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    Rhema is the word of God spoken to your spirit, quickened to your soul. The word that is hot and relevant to your current situation and condition. Rhema is personal and effective, it comes from the depth of God's heart, His spirit into your heart & your spirit. It imparts vigor, energy, strength, power, passion and fervency to you.

    All the Old Testament prophets received Rhema from God which made a way for them in the spiritual wilderness. Elijah received a Rhema word from God which not only fed him in famine but saved the life of the widow and her son; gave them a continual supply of food when all around them was in draught.

    His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones Jeremiah 20:9

    Rhema cries out to you, loud and clear.

    When you are reading your Bible, a scripture jumps out of the page to speak to you, or a verse highlighted by the Holy Spirit to enlighten and direct your path. Whatever God tells you to do, He will equip you to do it; wherever God tells you to go, He will prepare for you the way to get there.

    The fellowship with God in His Word is vital. The fire, the fervency, the calling comes when you fellowship with God in His Word. For you are face to face with Jesus!

    Revelation of John 19:13: and his name is called The Word of God.

    The Word imparts vision to you. You become a fired up, proactive, purposeful, God-sent person. Gone are the days of laziness, inactivity and boredom. Your life is no longer "a waste of time"! You become focused, organized and purposeful.

    A lot of people out there find life so boring that they have to resort to drugs, alcohol, loud music etc to give them a high; but then when the illusion is gone, they are left worse than before. A person who suffers from depression swings between highs and lows. why? It's because they are not living a "real life", the God given life in Christ Jesus!

    There is life in the Word, it is the life of God, the God kind of life.

    New Hampshire, twice. Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Maryland, Alabama, Wash. DC. When they were burning it down in '69. Drove all over when I was younger. My last 2 siblings, one is moving to Washington State and the other to Wyoming.

    It's hard to think of not seeing them again. My grandson is here, that's all I can explain.

    My 20-30's I was a draftsman and surveyor for the phone company. Seems like a whole other person to me now. I only know God had a purpose for my life. Everyone does.

    I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine

  • Donna - in Reply on Genesis 1:27
    Hi Joseph, maybe I misunderstood your question. I thought you were referencing specifically to Adam.

    Even though these events appear to have happened in chronological order as they are recorded in the Bible, it is possible that the other men and women were the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. Genesis 5:4 Adam lived 930 years before he died.

    We do not know how much time had passed before Cain knew his wife. I believe the bloodline has a lot to do with the seed that God spoke about in Genesis 3:15, which we know is Christ. Something to consider!
  • Bob Grove - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I smoked off and on in my earlier yrs , and enjoyed it too , but conviction that it could be unhealthy if done too much is not good , it's the lords temple so we need to keep as it where his Temple . Also it is offensive to others . So treat it as a sin , the flesh is weak and craves the addiction and habit . But rest assured God will supply the strength to over come when we take right path of stopping it . Ask seek His help .

    It's not easily done but don't stop trying , it will eventually never enter your mind again at one point in the future . I don't miss it any more .

    Full commitment to quitting is the biggest step , gets easier as you go , was my experience.

  • Paul Bennett on Acts 2:41
    What actually is the true meaning of "praying in tongues? Is it praying in actual known languages that you yourself have not been taught, or in a language that no one understands except by interpretation given by God?

  • Quaintance on Psalms 27
    This is one of my favorite Psalms. This lets you know it is alright to trust him because he got us covered and that he does give us a way of escape and that is through him. All we have to do is trust him, never give up and make sure you are his and have accepted him as your personal savior. Pray without ceasing. He is truly the head of my life.

    Who else likes this chapter..?
  • T - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Will

    I see that when you first approach someone you will "attack" using bold statements through personal words. When you are asked questions about your response you will grab any "relevant" scripture you can find and post it. You won't use your own words to give an answer in response. This means one thing.. your heart is hardened and biased. You seem to come in here to confront and cause abrasion. I believe you know this.

    Since you won't respond heres but one scripture I will give you, sir;

    Galatians 3:26. What does that scripture mean to you? Not my words, it is directly from THE word.

    I pray for you to find peace within your heart and to overcome whatever spirit is causing abrasion and separation in your thoughts.

    God Bless
  • Stephende - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Yes, very Paulish explanation. I am a atudent of the Torah, which offers no blanket exoneration, but a warning to all of the terrible and awsome power of El Shaddai. He is a heart knower and a rewarder, but also a destroyer of those who act callously against the laws of God dictated to Moses for public consumption. Even though the KJB and the Torah relate the same history, they are a remarkably dissimilar. The Torah is straightforward without antiquated language. It lacks the story of Jesus and the obscure direction that Paul presents regarding the love of God and His directions for happiness on earth.
  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 27:11
    The Lord delights in the man or woman that has a teachable spirit - the one that admits to their lack and yearns for the truth of God's word. Godly wisdom flows to the man that is humble in heart, meek in spirit and gentle in demeanour, for true wisdom from above is born of a childlike attitude and received by the one that submits to the Lord's will - desirous to learn His works and ways.The godly posture of this psalmist is a lowly heart on bended knee before the throne of God's grace, where he humbly pleads, teach me your way, O Lord and guide me along the straight path of wisdom and truth and instruct me on the correct way of righteous holiness.There are many today that lie in wait to trip and trap the man or woman that is placing their trust in the Lord. There are many that would twist truth or lay a cruel snare to entrap or ridicule. But the one that seeks to ensnare will become entangled in his own evil ploys, for the one that has a firm foothold on Christ will not stumble but be lead along a straight path, away from any set traps and hidden snares.The Lord delights in the one that has a teachable spirit and a humble heart that confesses their lack to Him. And He rejoices over the one that seeks first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, with meekness of heart and a gentle spirit, for that man or woman will be like a flourishing tree planted by the river of life, whom the Lord will lead along a good and level pathway.We Pray in Jesus name.Father God, please teach ME Your ways, and guide me along the best path for my life, for without You my feet would slip - and I will give You all the praise and the glory in Jesus name, AMEN.

    I believe that the word "suitable" to put it in simple terms means, that she was of the same kind as Adam. For every species in the animal kingdom, God created male and female for them to reproduce in the earth, however for Adam there was no female version of him.

    Hence, God spoke, "it is not good that the man should be alone".....
  • Wenmar - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Flossy Ann, Life is hard....take it one day (or even one hour) at a time. You are correct in wanting believers to pray for you. Over 20 years ago I woke up one day with a terrible hangover and worse...a feeling that I may have hurt someone (verbally) with my drunken behavior. When I asked this person he said "What are you talking about? You were hilarious last night.", but there was a feeling of shame that I couldn't stand.

    While I wasn't an alcoholic in the usual sense, I had been out carousing for 20 straight nights. And this was a pattern for about 15 years. And often I had feelings of worthlessness so I did abuse alcohol and this constant carousing to "feel good"..but it was a fakeout, a counterfeit!

    That morning, before I lifted my aching head from the pillow, I called out to God, whom I did not know personally, and gave him control of my life and just said " I don't want to feel like this anymore!!" No, it wasn't instantaneous but before I knew it I had lost my desire for this lifestyle and began getting to know my savior. I praise God that he delivered me from that life. And more importantly...to know my savior personally and to know that I will live in His kingdom with Him eternally!!! Unspeakable joy! Stay in the Word and keep praying!!!
  • Donna - in Reply on Job 13:15
    Mishael, thank you for your encouragement. I will not be moved by the adversary of my soul.

    To be honest at first I thought I would ignore the comments that were made, but I believe sometimes we need to address wrong behavior and allow the Holy Spirit to bring the conviction of sin.

    I do agree and did pray for him, trusting God to lead him to repentance.
  • Carleton - in Reply on John 3:16
    A born again believer should be able to completely understand this hymn in their hearts including that fifth wound: Charles Wesley "Arise My Soul Arise" Likewise a born again believer should also be able to understand full the hymn "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" especially the line in the lyric that says: "Sorrow and love flow mingled down".

    Arise my Soul Arise, shake of your guilty fears; The bleeding sacrifice, in my behalf appears; Before the throne my Surety stands, Before the throne my Surety stands. My name is written in His hands.

    He ever lives above, for me to intercede; His all redeeming love, His precious blood to plead; His blood atoned for every race, His blood atoned for every race, And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

    Five bleeding wounds he bears; received on Calvary; They pour effectual prayers; they strongly plead for me:" Forgive him O forgive," they cry, "Forgive him, O forgive," they cry. "Nor let the ransomed sinner die!"

    The Father hears Him pray, His dear anointed One: He cannot turn away the presence of his Son; The Spirit answers to the blood, The Spirit answers to the blood And tells me I am born of God.

    My God is reconciled; His pardoning voice I hear; He owns me for a child; I can no longer fear

    With confidence I now draw nigh, With confidence I now draw nigh, And "Father, Abba, Father," cry.

  • Andy G van den Berg on Acts 26
    On Acts 26:20

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting, repentings) is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Revelation 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    Luke 15:10. LIKEWISE, I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OF GOD OVER ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH
  • Carleton - in Reply on John 3:16
    Hello David, I have written in this discussion my personal born again experience which can be described literally moment by moment and can be described symbolically as a pattern to how Jesus's work at Calvary and how he fulfilled the law. I wrote my literal born again testimony on this discussion on July 23. I am not sure if it can be pulled up for your reference. As far as obedience, ONLY, as a reasonable service I walk a very close walk as well as my family and brethren in even the smallest matters such as taking harmful financial loss to benefit an upset working relationship or neighborly relationship. What sets ,any people off is not the testimony of how one is born again but how they walk after being born again with their relationships with the world and their testimony of grace and love for every single neighbor no matter that neighbors current condition. The Lord will always make a way of escape of some kind not to take revenge or act violently even in words or thoughts.
