  • Andy G van den Berg on Acts 13
    On Acts 13:24

    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
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Dear God, I thank you that your word says that you know what I need before I ask. I am seeking employment and trusting you to place me in the best position. Not only to meet my financial needs but to contribute to my success in future endeavors.

    I ask that this position be in alignment with the schedule I need so that I may remain faithful in all other personal and professional commitments. I know that you have a job for me, and I will trust you in getting me there.

    My faith is strong and I trust You, Lord. I will praise you now for mercy and grace!

    Amen. Hallelujah! Ephesians 6:13
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hunger pain is a mean little hormone that says to eat.

    I learned through fasting that if you'll drink a hot cup of Low sodium chicken bouillon; the warmth of the broth and the few calories will turn that hormone off. Add a few sprinkles of Mrs Dash (yellow lid) herbs.

    It's the heat that makes this work.

    Drink hot tea too. If you'll do that often it will re-train that hormone response.

    No bread. It causes yeast. They love sugar.

    If you can knock them down, they lose their power to make you comply. They actually scream, don't they?

    Just listen to when your body starts that screaming ok? It thinks it's getting a plate of food but it isn't.

    It's just a hormone.

    Be blessed David. Jesus is coming back soon. Study his Bible and get ready to meet Him for the first time.

    Lord, give David a hug today and remind him that You love him.

    :)
  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 10:26
    Dear Lord, I give you my entire heart, soul and being. All of the training, studying and skills are yours. Each work that I do and the money I earn is done in your honor. I lay all of my hopes and aspirations at your feet. I pray that you will bless my work and find favor in all that I do. When I meet new challenges in my work, I pray that you will help me to overcome them and excel in my job. Please guide me throughout the day so that I may walk in your path in all that I do. Amen.

    Protect me in this time away from home. When I return, go before me and give me favor with my doctors. I ask that this tumor would dry up and I am healed by Jesus dying on the Cross so I may give praise to you for a good report. And I shall tell of all of your mercy and grace and favor. Praise you Jesus forever, amen.

    For Protection of Grandchildren

    Lord,

    I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my grandkids. Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge and strength. I pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus, and that their home on earth is only temporary.

    Amen.

    I will send another prayer for breaking curses, soon.
  • Richard - in Reply on Revelation 7:9
    My pastor said he believes the 2 witnesses and the 144 thousand will only be preaching to the Jews on earth at that time, but what i have read and what you tell me make much more sense
  • Rev Tim George on Amos 2
    Jehovah God raised up the sons of Israel to be prophets and the young men to be Nazarites, but the people told the sons not to prophesy and gave wine to drink to the Nazarites, who were not to drink wine. This is what Paul warned would happen in the last days, they would not endure sound doctrine, but would heap up teachers with itching ears. Alcoholism has destroyed many from preaching the gospel, as Paul told the young minister Timothy, to drink a little wine, for his stomach. Today it is not done in moderation and many are being defiled. May God use us to say thus saith the Lord, as Amos did and say we must obey God and not men. When we do this we will be able to preach the gospel in season when it is wanted and out of season when it is not desired. May God give us the grace to heed the call of the souls of men and women who need Jesus the only Mediator between God and man.

    Jesus loves you. Read his Bible and He will stick closer than a brother to you.
  • Mercy with Cheerfulness - in Reply on Proverbs 27:17
    There is one scripture that describes you: cheerful. Which is very rare to encounter these days. You show yourself to be blessed.

    Romans Chapter 12

    6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

    7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

    8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, WITH CHEERFULNESS.

    9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 46
    Can you reword your question? Thanks

    Psalms 62:7-8 - In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

    Deuteronomy 4:7 - For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

    Psalms 9:9 - The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

    2 Samuel 22:17-20 - He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

    Psalms 91:1-9 - He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

    Proverbs 18:10 - The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

    Hebrews 6:18 - That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
  • BAPTISMS - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6:13
    John the Baptist performed Water Baptisms as a statement of repentance from the new believers. They were accustomed to animal sacrifices, etc.

    Some people really need or want to be publically water baptised in their Church. It's an occasion for everyone to celebrate.

    It is not a necessary act in order to be saved.

    Jesus showed Nicodemas (a Pharisee who sought out Jesus), that he must be Born Again. John 3

    Hi I see it a little different as if to say a peer or mentor helps or sharpen one abilities or help someone whoms depressed and a smile/countance will appear which will also benifet you I bit like karate kid or a simple as a good morning have a nice day.
  • RAPTURE CAUGHT UP SCRIPTURES - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    The Rapture - the raising of the Church into heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:17)-is the next event on the prophetic calendar. The Rapture is when Christ comes back and takes every Christian that is still on this earth and resurrects all of those who have died and takes them to heaven with Him. In 1 Thessalonians 5:1-8, Paul expresses that the Lord's return will be like a thief in the night. No one knows the date or time. However, there are several signs of the End Times that we can all be aware of. Events such as earthquakes and diseases, war and dispute among nations, and persecution against Christians are all signs leading to the Rapture.

    SCRIPTURES TO LOOK UP:

    Matthew chapter 24. 25: 1-46

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 5:2

    Revelation 1:7, 3:10

    1 Corinthians 15: 51-53

    Mark 13:32

    John 14:1-3

    Luke 21: 34-36; 12:40

    Acts 1: 9-11

    2
    Peter 3:10

    Hebrews 9:28

    Philippians 3:20

    Colossians 3:2

    Ezekiel 18:4

    You can use the empty search box on the KJB website: type in 'Antichrist' and it will list other verses you should read.

    Write them down so you can share with friends and family, you want to be in heaven with you.

    A Pastor just said in a sermon, that watching the DVD named, The Passion: really shows how Christ suffered so we could be saved. God save you. Amen.

  • Nijwm Basumatary on Matthew 1
    I like Jesus
  • Marilyn T on Hebrews 5
    Glad that this chapter explained the difference between a "babe and a mature Christian." Often when one becomes a New

    Christian, some believe that they should know everything about God at once. Some want them to stop doing, going or wearing

    what they did prior to accepting Christ. It can be a gradual step just like a Baby. They should not be abused or casted down

    because they do not immediately act as Mature Christians. Just as it takes a Baby time to develop , so does it take time for

    Baby Christian. There hearts will be convicted as they walk with God. Be careful how you speak to them. They will learn by

    your good example of being a Mature Christian.
  • Carolyn locke on Matthew 10
    We must trust and believe in God s word,that he can do anything in his will. If we pray scriptures then we are praying according to his will. It is up to us to pray and believe in Him. But we must remember it is God who does the work .he always has reasons for what he does. We may not understand, but he is responsible for the answers,not us. We are just responsible for lifting the matter to the Lord's ears. We must TRUST Him to do what is best.
  • Bob Grove on Psalms 86:11
    John chapter 6 verse 39 , 40 , 44 , 54

    Jesus said he would raise up all of those that believe in him on the LAST day .

    Quite clear is it not . So don't look for an early exit . We are here for the duration.
  • Little Children and the Rapture of the Church on Acts 2:41
    Comment: clearly Jesus loves babies & little children and disabled in comprehension.

    Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

    Matthew 7:11

    If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

    Matthew Chapter 18

    3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

    6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

    AGE OF ACCOUNTABILITY

    I think the best way to answer that is to say this: There is no "age of accountability" identified in Scripture, as such. There is nothing in the Bible that says, "Here is the age and from here on you are responsible!" I think the reason for that is because children mature at different paces. That would be true from culture to culture, and from age to age in history.

    So the Lord in His wisdom didn't identify a specific moment. God knows when each soul is accountable. God knows when real rejection has taken place; when the love of sin exists in the heart. When enmity with God is conscious and willful. God alone knows when that occurs.

    Comment: Jesus is going to take the little ones in the Rapture. He'll not leave them here to be used as bait for Antichrist's Mark of the Beast.

    If you LOVE your kids; infants & older, everyone pray now to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord! Decide NOW. In the blink of an eye, is all we've got to make that decision. Put your most holy trust in Jesus.

  • FOOD Problems on Revelation 17
    I heard last night that foreign countries OWN over 50 MILLION acres of American farmland. They can ship the food back to their own countries; not here.

    Their farmlands are contaminated with pandemic substances. Who really knows.

    They sell their home grown food to us. And ship US Grown food to their country. President Trump has sanctioned against the importing of Chinese meat into our country. What happens if the White House turns Blue in November??

    Our Country is being ruined by Big Business, Crooked Politicians and run by people with no souls. China exports food to all countries! I've been boycotting Walmart :/. Big help that is huh?

    I watched a PBS rescue show about how the Chinese are serving up Turtles in their fancy restaurants; with smuggled Pangolin meats: that can carry Corona Virus!! How sick is that? I wonder if our meat inspectors check that meat?

    There are stories on Google about how meat is being SMUGGLED into this country. It's been going on for years. I wish I didn't read those stories....it's bigger than what I've said.

    Maybe we should make Congress have them stamp all the products with country of origin?

    Everybody just really pray over your food. Ask the Lord to "bless and sanctify it; make it holy for us to consume; and our babies. Pets too. Amen.

    Jesus said except He Return and take us with Him, no life would be saved. We gotta trust Jesus with this. It makes me happy that we can put our Trust in God.

  • Carleton - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 11:1
    Here is a hymn. "Spirit So Holy" Daniel W. Wittle

    Spirit so holy, Spirit of love, Spirit so gentle, Sent from above; Priceless possession, Purchase of blood, Good beyond measure, Gift of our Lord.

    Spirit of wisdom, Spirit of light, Spirit of knowledge , Showing the right; Guide us and teach us, Fully to know All that in Jesus God would bestow.

    Spirit of humble, Spirit of meek, Spirit so kindly, Helping the weak; Work in and through us, Make us to be Lowly and loving, Yielding to Thee.

    Spirit of Power, Spirit of God, Spirit of burning, Work through Thy word; Search us and sift us, Spare not the dross, Show us that self life Ends at the cross.

    My personal testimony is this Holy Spirit while I was in sin made His presence known to me just outside of my heart, so much so that I desired him, I sought after Him in just enough knowledge to understand that by faith I only needed to empty out my sin before Jesus at the Cross and I would have Him. In a very short period of time, perhaps several months, I could boldly claim in a quiet humble way that I knew this Holy Ghost in my heart and soul and that he lives in me and guides me as a child.

    I have had in the past some uncomfortable dream of past sin life, woke up enough to feel that presence of peace in my soul and happily fell back into rest!

    :)
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 11:1
    My first Bible was, the Living Bible. It's paraphrased so it's easier to understand.

    For memorizing, I'd pick the KJV.

    Just for reading, the New International version is good too.

    One addition I love is a large print concordance for studying. You can look up 'Holy Spirit', and it will list all verses about that one word. You see every verse about that and have a clearer picture of who He is.
  • Bob Grove - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    The principle of giving is for all time . Give and it shall be given to you , it's more blessed to give than receive....

    Remember in acts they sold a land and laid The money it at the apostles feet and held back part of it lying about it ?

    There are no limits on giving .

    It's up to the person on to decide how much to give in love , not because they must .

    God loves a cheerful giver .

    But to say that This verse applies to the church ? No it does not . Or the apostles would have said if it was or Jesus himself . So no it's not NT teaching .
  • Marguerita fowler on Acts 2:41
    What are All the scriptures where God tells us when He is coming back and what are all the scriptures that tells us the signs of his coming.

    What are the scriptures that teaches us he is our protector and provider.
  • Ruby on Proverbs 18
    It reminds how I used to interrupt someone and quick at making comments/judgment based on what I know which is usually either hearsays or biased opinion without hearing the other person finish what is being said. Now I realize even after actively hearing and listening to the person speak with empathy, I ask permission first if the other person wants to hear my opinion. I also learned how not to assume anything about what others say or do regardless whether or not I heard the facts of a story because it is almost like passing a judgment and playing God.
  • Bob Grove - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 11:1
    When I first started reading the bible I read a Good news bible my reading skills where very poor . It's a bible for people learning English . I do not read it or any other book but KJV now . You must Ask in prayer for understanding not matter which bible you read . KJV is most accurate and a dictionary is a good idea to read it with .

    Long ago an uneducated lady asked the Lord to understand the bible so she could read it her self since she did not believe the minister . And yes she was able to read a KJV with understanding, so keep at it .

    Meditate on the word rather than reading it like a novel .

    That is reading it slowly and allowing many thoughts to come to you that reading it fast you would miss , repeat often until you get it or put it on the shelf and maybe another verse will clarify it to you later . Learning takes time and effort .

    But your eternity depends on it . God Bless you as you seek the truth .
