    Kidnappers, slave traders and the like.

    Great comments, Bob! Not many believers understand it the way you do. "Flesh and blood did not reveal that to you." I do believe though, that Noah preached "it's gonna rain," for closer to 115 years and built the boat during the last five. God bless!!
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 19:20
    We'll have to exchange emails I guess. I'm not going to try to pray for people if I'm going to be blocked. I'll see you around.
  • Bendito sea Adonay adonayGod on Psalms 91:7
    Psalms 91

    15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.

    |Interpretation|

    Here we see that if we call unto the Lord (which would mean by prying or fasting), God will listen to out prayers and respond. Either according to our petition, if it is in his will, or something else.

    {Example}

    If Alejandra wanted a job to start of her career, and she asked God to give her a Job, let's say she want to work at 'Maria Sanchez pet shop' (But she wants to be a vet). BUTTTT..... God has something different planned, he hears her prayer but gives her a job as a Vet apprentice!!!

    Sorry if my comment came across that it is a sin to pray to God instead of Jesus. If one prays 'in Jesus name' they are still in essence praying to God thru Jesus and Jesus is the only way to God. So pray in Jesus name or pray straight to Jesus, either way, just pray, and pray often. As for me, I pray "Dear Lord Jesus.........."
  • Lazar Dsouza on Genesis 1:14
    what is the meaning of Baptism..?

    Why we need Baptism..?
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 19:20
    People naturally interpret this different ways. You can get a rough survey of widespread opinion by simply listening to prayers. People often use different terms interchangeably, like Dear... Lord, Jesus, Father, God, etc. I personally believe God looks at the heart and that people are not sinning by using the wrong proper noun.

    It is my opinion that we are to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus. Jesus said no one comes to the father but through me. That doesn't automatically mean we switch and start worshiping and praying to Jesus. Jesus is the pathway to God; he said he's the way to get to the Father. It doesn't say the Father is the way to get to Jesus, or that Jesus is the way to get to Jesus. So, I believe it implies that we are trying to follow Jesus to lead us to the Father. John 14:6. Jesus intercedes for us. Romans 8:34. It said to follow Jesus in His example, but no where in the Bible am I aware of it saying to worship and sing songs to Jesus.

    Of course confusion is not surprising as it says Jesus and God the Father are one. Of course, they're separate, but united. We just don't know to what extent they are united or as 'one'. John 10:30.

    John 7:16-18. Jesus was sent by God the Father. He was presenting information pre-approved by God the Father. There is a slight hierarchy in my opinion. So, I think to pray to Jesus and worship Jesus is not supported by scripture in my opinion. But if I hear someone praying to Jesus and praising Him I do not see that as offensive.

    God bless...

  • Asking on Matthew 7:1
    What does good fruit mean ?
  • Ron - in Reply on Revelation 19:20
    We will have to agree to disagree. The bible plainly states that Jesus Christ is our intercessor.
  • Romans 1214-21 on Psalms 113:9
    14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

    15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

    16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

    17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

    *18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

    19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

    20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

    21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 9:14
    The Bible says much about vows and oaths. I believe you made a promise, which is different as Psalms 76:11 indicates.

    Here is this websites commentary on That scripture:

    Redeemer.

    7-12 God's people are the meek of the earth, the quiet in the land, that suffer wrong, but do none. The righteous God seems to keep silence long, yet, sooner or later, he will make judgment to be heard. We live in an angry, provoking world; we often feel much, and are apt to fear more, from the wrath of man. What will not turn to his praise, shall not be suffered to break out. He can set bounds to the wrath of man, as he does to the raging sea; hitherto it shall come, and no further. Let all submit to God. Our prayers and praises, and especially our hearts, are The Presents we should bring to the Lord. His name is glorious, and he is the proper object of our fear. He shall cut off the spirit of princes; he shall slip it off easily, as we slip off a flower from the stalk, or a bunch of grapes from the vine; so the word signifies. He can dispirit the most daring: since there is no contending with God, it is our wisdom, as it is our duty, to submit to him. Let us seek his favour as our portion, and commit all our concerns to him.

    Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

    I don't know what you vowed or promised, so I cannot say more. I think you should have a meeting with your Pastor and pray about this. Get this off your chest, so-to-speak.
  • D.J. - in Reply on Genesis 3
    You are right,

    It was said by Eve.

    Eve saw the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Satan) as the most desirable and beautiful creature she had ever seen.

    That is why she added the words "neither shall ye touch it."

    Both she and Adam failed.

  • Daniel Moran on Revelation 19:20
    Does anyone know the precise number of Old Testament prophesies of the coming Messiah?
  • Carleton on Leviticus 15
    My wife is 51 years old and well read in non- fiction and some fiction books and knows the Bible a lot better than I do. Only a few momenta ago, I asked her if she had ever heard of Robert Redford, she said, "no."

    :)
  • Daniel - in Reply on Revelation 19:20
    Jesus' desire for each of us is to have the same relationship with the God the Father as he has. We should have a relationship with Christ as well, but Christ wants us to know his Father, and to pray to his Father in his name.

    In fact, that Jesus is our intercessor is evidenced in part by the fact that we are able to pray in his name, he wants us to his use name on our own behalf, and it is through that vouching that he intercedes for us. He himself prays for us to God his Father, and this is evidence that we should go straight to the Father as he taught us to in the Lord's prayer. Again, if we should pray to our intercessors, why not pray to your pastor and whoever else, as they also should intercede for you. But to pray for oneself, one should go to God.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 19:20
    I am still interested on the name of the faith that Bob is speaking of. Who are his brethren? Are they Amillenialist? More importantly to me, are they non- resistant loving lambs of Christ?
  • Earl Jackson on Ecclesiasticus 19:19
    what is, the name of the bible,I can buy that has old testament including ecclesiasticus and the new testament in one book.
  • Psalm 10515 - in Reply on John 6
    He's preaching from the book of Acts 3000. Does anyone know what that is? Just curious...
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 19:20
    In the name of Jesus one can pray directly to God the Father even Abba, without fear and without fault.

    :)
  • The word Kuria I believe is not the ladys' name in 2nd John. From what I've read John is simply addressing his letter to a chosen spiritual lady.
  • Happy Babtistcostilist - in Reply on Genesis 3
    eve said that , cant find in bible where GOD said it , I think adam told her that , because he was lazy , he should of did his job , tend the garden, just like most churchs , you pray on the corner so everybody can see, but when it comes time to work, to help GOD make a differance in there lives,not preach as adam did , just my thoughts
  • Carleton - in Reply on John 6
    Hi Bob, are you speaking of Amillenialism?

  • D.J. - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    Mark Padmore,

    Adam and Eve did not need any type of covering because they had not sinned yet.

    As angels of light, they were pure.

    They were creations of God (i.e. no belly button / no parent)

    The covering they may have put on was the 7 layers of membrane we call skin.

    After they sinned, the adjustment of God's plan was made.

    God is prepared for everything.
  • Norman Walker Butch - in Reply on Revelation 19:20
    Ron, I have often wondered the very same thing and I myself have done it wrong also but I am going to start praying to Jesus like the Bible says. Thanks and Amen.
  • Norman Walker Butch - in Reply

  • Ernest Becker on 2 Timothy 3:1
    How will it be in the last days
  • Donna Williams - in Reply on John 6
    The word rapture is not found in the Word of God, but 1Thessalonians 4:17 reveals that the saints who are alive and remain at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ shall be caught up together with them (those who have fallen asleep in Christ), in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. The words being "caught up" is the Resurrection of the Saints. I do not believe that we should form an opinion of whether or not He is coming pre, mid, or post tribulation. The truth of the matter is Jesus already told us we don't know the day or the hour when the Son of Man is coming, so how is it that we are having disputes over when He's coming. Jesus said, "Watch, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that ye think not." Matthew 24:44 & Luke 12:46

    What is Jesus saying, He is saying that we must be ready at all times. For He is coming as a thief in the night!
