  • Andy G van den Berg on 1 Peter 2
    On 1 PETER 2:2

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    By attending a man-made institution a few hours a week (Acts 7:48; 17:24), does not mean that a person can make a claim that they are followers of Christ and 'Born Again'. That is falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; Revelation 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. 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 (John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know 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). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).
  • 1 Corinthians 6:19

    "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"
  • Lolo on 1 Corinthians 6
    9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    Waiting for your second coming LORD. IM not staying behind!
  • Charles Pineda Jr Former family values Democratic candidate for Governor of Cali on Psalms 94:16
    The Lord of the heavenly forces needs no human assistance, but he does use human beings to spread the Good News of Christ Jesus.

    With the international bankers financing all aspects of the anti-Christ movement was Solomon full of the Holy Spirit of God and asking believers to stand up for true believers today? One Christian commentator stated that we need, today, a John Knox or Martin Luther type of individual's to stand up for the Christian family and our national moral values that our nation had until about 1963, when the Bible was taken out of our schools.

    I'm still a democrat because there are ten of millions of Christian democrats. The anti-Christ people who control the party absolutely abhors us, especially candidates like me who don't change their Christian values for political position, money, favors, etc.

    At times I've though of running for president as a write in candidate and do everything possible to get rid of the international bankers political party system; as that system is unconstitutional, and they are not mentioned in our Constitution. Our USA was founded without political parties, and did very well.

    The only way, speaking economically, to take control of a country's treasury is through the political party system invented by the European bankers around 14th century. With the big money they make they easily have motivated candidates accept their donations thus becoming their minions. Today, the have trillions of dollars to continue to get into office anyone they want, and who will insure that their interest is dealt with effectively. They pass any laws they want and insured, today, that their banks, military industrial factories can give any amount of money to any candidate.

    So, the Presidents, the Congress, and the Supreme Court justices are their minions. They put in their president, he appoints Wall Street types as Secretary of the Treasury, and appoints Judges to the Supreme Court who will pass laws such as the same sex marriage. IHS.
  • MILK OF THE WORD or STRONG MEAT - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    Hebrews 5

    2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.

    3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.

    4 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

    5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.

    6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

    7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

    8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

    9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

    10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

    11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.

    12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, YE HAVE NEED that one teach you AGAIN which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need OF MILK, and not of strong meat.

    13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

    14 But STRONG MEAT belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses EXERCISED to DISCERN both good and evil.


    If we're born again and Baptized by the HOLY SPIRIT; we are indwelt with Our Teacher. We DO have need to read the Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to teach us what we are reading.

    We need to not forsake gathering together either. Sit under a Pastor. Note the scriptures. Study at home with THE HOLY SPIRIT. Gorge yourself on the Bible daily.

    Read Commentaries too. Pray for the Meat.

  • Trusting God With Our Money - in Reply on John 16
    Luke 18

    18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

    19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

    20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

    21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

    22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: AND COME AND FOLLOW ME.

    Comment by Mishael:

    There's more, so read that chapter to get the full story.

    You're not under any kind of judgment for having financial plans. You already know it's not giving you a sense of eternal security.

    Only Jesus can give you what you seek. As you seek Him in Prayer, someday you will know His financial suggestions for you.

    Having money is harder than not having it.

    I find Jesus very willing to advise me who to give money to. It's like The Holy Spirit says this one or that one. I asked to win the lottery so I could give it to all the World feeding ministries....and I got silence on that. I still give to feeding ministries on a budget.

    When I was a street evangelist, I bought McDonald's food coupons for the alcoholics in the street, or I took them to I-Hop. I made fresh sandwiches. I worked in a church feeding program, giving out boxes of food. People were always nice to me; told me lots of heartbreaking stories. Everybody in the streets know who Jesus is!

    Don't feel bad about your past. Let Jesus be Lord over your money. Marriages get torpedo'd because of money. Your Partner will be The Lord Jesus. Listen to Him. Follow Him. It takes a lot of relationship to agree on everything: including money.

    Read the New Testament and Gospels to really study what Jesus taught about money. What is His heart?
  • Joseph Burger - in Reply on Genesis 1:27
    Thanks Donna for your honest reply about Genesis 2v20. But unfortunately i'm still in the dark about the answer (Genesis 2v20): The land Nod was mensioned during proses of Creation. Can Nod be identified as (land) without inhabitants (citizens).

    Secondly, the operation done on Adam could have been SPIRITUALLY, meaning preaching the Gospel to mankind, the intention to bring forth Spiritual BIRTH.Reason being that Genesis introduced to us God as a SPIRIT. My views are supported by [Malecki 3]. That chapter identifies (God) as a Spirit therefore the SPIRITUAL BEING was supposed to be in the IMAGE of the CREATOR (GOD).

    In the beginning His Spirit was dwelling upon the waters/the deep.

    Does that indicates that identifying Adam one should imagine a Spiritual Rehabilitated Being that was formed out of humankind. [Genesis 1v27-28].

    NB. Adam as described in Genesis was called by Jesus Christ as the 1st Adam without (the life giving Spirit).

    Lastly, to imagine a Spirit (God) physically performing an operation on a body, unless God was in the likeness of human. Spiritual "operation", to rehabilitate the soul of humankind, that sounds more acceptable.

    The above are my honest personal views, unless otherwise convinced.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Hebrews 10:25
    Most assuredly remission of sins happens on earth following blood atonement (Leviticus chapters 16 and 17). Yet only the blood of Jesus Christ is adequate propitiation, he being God in the flesh (Isaiah 53).

    What Jesus demonstrated was that he had power to lay down his life and then take it again. (John 10:18).

    Admittedly the character of Christians is too often a ready excuse for unbelief.

    Marginal medicine majors on the malady while repudiating the remedy.
  • WHAT GOD LIKES ABOUT USMishael - in Reply on James 1:2
    Please study these comments yourself in Genesis.

    There were 2 Trees in the Garden of Eden.

    Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

    Their spiritual connection to God was severed. Jesus eventually came to restore that connection to His born again Believers.

    The Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) discussed together how to protect the Tree of Life. If Adam and Eve ate of that one, they would live forever in a sinful state.

    The Garden was protected and Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden.

    Later, you will see that God had moved the Tree of Life to Heaven.

    As far as I know, no archaeologists have ever dug down and found the remains of the Garden of Eden. Most humans have a conscience about good and evil, even if some choose to be contrary.

    Revelation 22

    1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the NATIONS.

    3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

    Comment: some scholars believe that we'll need the leaves for illnesses and physical deformities, but I don't think so. We'll obtain our new transformed bodies in the clouds with Jesus during the Rapture.

    My guess would be for the diversity of people going to heaven; like races, cultures.

    When you view the diversity of nature and animals, birds, etc. It makes sense to me that the Lord would desire the diversity of humans. Who wants to look at one color, one race, one kind of music, one kind of cuisine, etc. Who wants to eat Cheerios every day for a thousand years? Do you see my thoughts?

    Heaven, my friends, is going to be FUN!!

    Wrap your head around that ok.

    Study what God likes.
  • Obbie Beal on John 17
    John 17:15 "I pray not that THOU shouldest take them out of the world, but that THOU shouldest keep them from the evil"

    Note: in 2020 we should not become fearful or overwhelmed by this dreadful hour that is upon mankind, because JESUS (see John 17:15) has prayed for us, thereby GOD shall keep us, so we do not have to know or understand how GOD will keep us, but through FAITH we can be assured this PRAYER OF JESUS for us SHALL be answered by GOD.

    John 17:20 neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

    Note: this whole PRAYER OF JESUS is both directly & indirectly concern with SALVATION for all mankind, thereby blessed them and us that believed on JESUS according John 3:16-21, thereby our name is written in The BOOK of LIFE (Revelation 20:15).
  • THE HOLY BLOOD OF JESUS - in Reply on Matthew 17:5
    Jesus's blood is so Holy that no demon EVER opposed Him during His ministry. They left at a high rate of speed or asked to go into some pigs which promptly ran off the side of a cliff and died.

    The subjects here are: spiritual warfare and the Authority of the Believers in Jesus, that are born again, Holy Spirit Baptized and protected through the shed Blood of Jesus.

    Gospels show that when Satan tempted Jesus (after he had fasted 40 days), he first tempted Jesus with food.

    Jesus countered Satan with the SCRIPTURES.

    In the Lords Prayer, one verse says: "deliver us from evil." In Greek I think it translates as: deliver us from the evil.

    Jesus has given us every means, including the Armor, in Ephesians 6; to scatter demons off ourselves, and others. Your prayers can be launched from one hemisphere to the other. We all have a personal responsibility to get in scripture and build up our ARSENAL against the Devil.

    If you don't know what Authority of the Believer is, then listen to some Charles Capps videos on YouTube.

    Be careful what is in your house, or what other house members bring into it. For example: if your teenager has a pentagram on the wall and blares "Tool" music through the walls. That's Satan taking advantage of you through someone you love. You have a right as owner of the home to remove offensive things. Be sweet but Tell the kid they can decorate THEIR apartment when they move out; and use headphones or you'll confiscate their tunes too. They'll be mad a while, but they like eating more. Be strong but be Christ-like when you interact.

    Go in there and pray scripture when they go out with their friends. Sing some gospel songs. Ask the Lord to dispatch an angel to keep everything evil out of the house. Evil is invisible, but total chaos from a kid is a sign that a "doorway" is open somewhere. You will know what to do. Hug often.

    Pass this info on to other struggling parents!

  • The Medical Explanation Of Jesus39s Death - in Reply on John 3:16
    John 19:31-34 So the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath the Jews asked Pilate that the legs might be broken and that they might be taken away. The soldiers came and broke the legs of the 1st and 3rd prisoners. Jesus was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, there came out blood and water." Why did blood and water come out of Jesus' side??

    Crucifixion typically resulted in death through one of two ways: The first was HYPOVOLEMIC shock. The prolonged rapid heartbeat resulting from hypovolemic shock can cause fluid to gather in the area around the heart. This is called pericardial effusion.

    The second way death occurred during crucifixion was due to asphyxiation. The person is unable to breathe in enough oxygen to survive. Crucifixion victims had to pull their weight up with their hands or wrists that were nailed; along with pushing up with the feet or ankles that had another nail through them. Over time, the ability to push up to breathe would end and oxygen flow would be restricted. *This asphyxiation can also result in the buildup of fluid around the heart.

    In either case, the account of John is quite accurate. The Romans saw that the other two crucifixion victims were still alive and broke their legs so they would no longer be able to push themselves up to breathe, resulting in death within minutes. Jesus, they saw He had become unconscious and likely was already dead. To confirm, a spear was shoved into His side, likely under His ribs, that ruptured the PERICARDIAL sack, resulting in a flow of both blood and water.

    This manner of death was a brutal end for Jesus, there was also prophetic significance to this event. John states in John 19:36-37, "For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled: 'Not one of his bones will be broken. And again another Scripture says, They will look on him whom they have pierced.

    Prophesies: Exodus 12:46. Zechariah 12:10.

  • Post Adamic Peoples - in Reply on Genesis 1:27
    Wesley's Commentary for Genesis 2:20

    It is not good that man - THIS man, should be alone - Though there was an upper world of angels, and a lower world of brutes, yet there being none of the SAME RANK of beings with himself, Adam might be truly said to be alone. And every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air God brought to Adam - Either by the ministry of angels, or by a special instinct that he might name them, and so might give a proof of his knowledge, the names he gave them being expressive of their inmost natures.

    There were other beings: God's created angels; and the evil angels who followed Lucifer. God chose neither.

    He chose to perform surgery on Adam, with one of his ribs. If my memory is right: men have one less rib than women do. Someone medical can prove that.

  • Harper on Revelation 20
    Jesus does not expect us to mock the Bible but t to simply look back and some point of our lives should reflect the stories in it.

    This duplicated or mocking is not ethical bc it has already been done and we are to walk by faith prophets of phony are what we are to see onend times and trust me thisishere now. The devil attacks ones mind and this a contagious as theflu when eating of same bowl. When he says be aware and sober I do believe he means it

  • 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. :)
  • Carleton - in Reply on Proverbs 6:1
    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.
