    These scriptures in John 3:3 are a great comfort to those who are seeking peace with God and man.

    Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    John 3:4

    Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

    John 3:5

    Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    At Calvary, the water poured from his side and intermingled with his blood and washed our sins away by faith in our repentance looking from up from the wilderness to his healing by repentance. The full result is His Spirit entered into our earthly tabernacle and filled us with peace and understanding.

    This Peace which is harmless, undefiled, separated from willing sin is God in man and will carry the new man by the guidance of his Holy Spirit to the finish of this earthly race.
  • Mimi - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Thank you for your response :).

    I will look that verse and the others in a little bit.

    Yes, my dream was beautiful I will never forget it. It got my attention and I kept searching. I'm so happy to tell you a few years later, we started going to Church and my husband and I both were saved, Thank God. God works in mysterious ways. Not long after that day, my 2 brothers and a sister in law was saved. Then it wasn't long when my daughter, 2 nieces and a nephew was saved. We all kept praying for my Dad to go to church. Many years later him and my mom were at my aunt's house in Kentucky.They talked him into going with them to their little country church.Praise the Lord my Dad got saved and was Baptized.So thankful my mom was with him.She had prayed and shed many tears over the years for him. A few more years later, my dad passed away. But even though it was so so sad losing him, I know by God's Grace and His never ending love, our family will be together
  • Harold Edward Willett - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    I agree Mike. I've forgiven but I haven't forgot I never will but good has replaced much more in my life that I would have been given otherwise. One of my family members passed away not long ago and no one called me except for the one Uncle my dad's brother that I have so much respect for. He told me he had heard about it so I sent to that funeral and if I hadn't said hello to those church going relative's they wouldn't have ever spoken to me but I did the right thing. They thought she my mother passed away my life with be horrible hahaha little did they know. One can forgive but one can also stay away from those that cause them to stumble which is excatly what I've done. I'm so much better off. Now I have the Best friend's I could ever ask for. First time in my life I've been so happy an it's all because of Jesus no questions about it whatsoever at all. Best to you my friend

  • Debra Grace on 1 Corinthians 7:7
    Burning is lusting - would you agree? Doesn't Paul contradict what Christ said about lusting? Nor, did Christ specify marriage. Christ said lusting is a sin in the heart.
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Proverbs 6:1
    Hi Rosie, Proverb 6:1

    Surety for a friend is like co-signing on the car. Putting your own credit on the line for someone else. If you feel uneasy in your Spirit, please pray about it.

    James 1:5
  • David - in Reply on John 3:16
    Repentance is necessary, true. Don't forget Jesus' words to Nicodemus earlier in this very chapter: "You MUST be born again of the WATER AND OF THE SPIRIT" if you want to claim being "born again". Peter told us how to do that on the day of Pentecost, when he, being filled with the Holy Spirit, addressed the crowd in Acts 2:38. That, my friends, is how one is truly "born again."
  • Carleton - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    Here is another place in the Bible that supports not being a Christian island but instead, in humility supporting Jesus's bride the living church which is promised that the gates of hell will not prevail against her.

    Hebrews 13:1

    Let brotherly love continue.

    From experience, the more the better!

    Carleton, by love.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 10:33
    You have to read all 4 gospels (the Harmony) and the book of Acts to find these things out.

    Read the center column references beside the verses for extra information.

    You'll find that (Judas) Iscariot was written in a prophesy from Psalms. Jesus knew Judas would betray Him, upfront.

    Some things you can google and find out how Jesus added each disciple into "the twelve". How they died, etc.
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Genesis 13
    Attempting to help: you ask " Where do I go from here?"

    To God Almighty in prayer & HIS Word.

    For encouragement 2 Samuel 23:3,

    Direction & wisdom : Proverbs

    Understanding who Jesus is Mathew, Mark, Luke &/or John

  • Unequally Yoked - in Reply on Numbers 12:13
    Christian, Do not be 'unequally yoked' to an UNBELIEVER. Search or google that.

    The Bible says NOTHING about mixed race marriages. The "cultural issues" may doom the marriage tho. We are not to leave our faith and be converted to the others beliefs.

    It could send the Christian into unbelief and apostasy; which is a road that leads to hell.

    If you blaspheme the Holy Spirit And recant on your salvation through Jesus.

    Consider that, before pleasures of the flesh.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    Out of the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses, let a thing be established. All must be in agreement, to be truth from the Lord.

    We can be sitting ducks for false prophets, false teachers, wolves in sheep skins, Antichrist or his Antichrist spirit (demon).

    Don't let your self be led into Apostasy. You could end up in hell.

    Now go google on those words. Type Bible At the end of your question.
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Revelation 5:13
    Francis, I'm going to pray for you. I don't want to falsely judge this situation by the few words you've stated. If you need help, please reach out to others, if this is regarding you & it's on going.
  • Why is wisdom referred as a woman - in Reply on Proverbs 3:15
    1:20-21; 2:2-4; 3:14-18; 4:7-8; 8:1-36 and 9:1-12. Each time wisdom speaks. The first time wisdom speaks is in Proverbs 1:20-21.

    Wisdom shouts in the street,

    She lifts her voice in the square;

    At the head of the noisy streets she cries out;

    At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings: Proverbs 1:20-21 (NASB)

    The Hebrew word for wisdom is hakmot and this noun is a feminine plural. A literal reading would seem to be "Wisdom shouts in the street," except that the second line is in the singular - "she lifts her voice." F. C. Cook writes,

    In the Hebrew the noun is a feminine plural . . . as though this Wisdom were the queen of all wisdoms, uniting in herself all their excellences.[1]

    That is, since Proverbs 2:6 says that God gives wisdom, the wisdom in Proverbs is the queen of all wisdoms. There is no greater wisdom.

    For the LORD gives wisdom;

    From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

    He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

    He is a shield to those who walk uprightly . . . Proverbs 2:6-7 (NKJV)

    Why Is Wisdom A Woman?

    Why did Proverbs personify wisdom as a woman? The answer is we do not know because Scripture never tells us. However, many have speculated why wisdom is personified as a woman by suggesting different ideas, but we are never told. The explanations are merely speculation. It is wrong to state that Proverbs is written from a father to his son and then suggest that wisdom is personified as feminine in order to make wisdom appear attractive to the son when Proverbs 5:15-20 warns men to avoid prostitutes. Such a conclusion is contrary to the teaching of Scripture.

    Others suggest that wisdom is feminine because the Hebrew word is assigned the feminine gender. But this conclusion is wrong since the grammatical structure clearly refers to a female such as in Proverbs 3:13-15 and 9:1.

    Google this question. Mishael
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 1:14
    From the Commentary Box

    Cautions against rash suretiship. (1-5) A rebuke to slothfulness. (6-11) Seven things hateful to God. (12-19) Exhortations to walk according to God's commandments. (20-35)1-5 If we live as directed by the word of God, we shall find it profitable even in this present world. We are stewards of our worldly substance, and have to answer to the Lord for our disposal of it; to waste it in rash schemes, or such plans as may entangle us in difficulties and temptations, is wrong. A man ought never to be surety for more than he is able and willing to pay, and can afford to pay, without wronging his family; he ought to look upon every sum he is engaged for, as his own debt. If we must take all this care to get our debts to men forgiven, much more to obtain forgiveness with God. Humble thyself to him, make sure of Christ as thy Friend, to plead for thee; pray earnestly that thy sins may be pardoned, and that thou mayest be kept from going down to the pit.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 1:14
    Twice God allowed some kind of visual but not clearly. JAcob only saw his back. Moses only saw His Fire.

    Go do a search on burning bush.

    Naturally they were afraid because of, "no man can see God and live."

  • T. Levis - in Reply on James 1:5
    Great question! I was just thinking about those recently & I realized a deeper thought about them. He said these things before HE actually lived them out as example, before HIS crucifixion.

    Mathew 5:1-48

    Luke 6:17-49

  • Mishael on Matthew 24:9
    Some of your questions can be answered sooner, if you'll learn how to use the 2 SEARCH boxes when you first enter the room. One is empty and the other one you can "dial" in the scripture you're looking for.

    While the scripture is upon the screen, touch or click on it and it will highlight yellow. Scroll down till you see the Commentary box, click and open.

    If you don't see exactly what you want, use the fast google box. It will take you to a list that tries to locate your scripture.

  • Monica on 1 John 3:15
    I'm interested if you got a response to your question?
  • Rolando Martinez on Psalms 15
    The impulse to compare myself with the character in Psalms 15 is irresistible: like the sword in the stone, I can't resist giving it a tug. But, the Holy Spirit is true in His ministry (John 16; 7-11): He helps me see that I fall short of the Glory revealed in those few verses. He also brings to mind Jesus in His ministry here on earth then I recognize that Psalms 15 is a portrait of Jesus, that the Glory belongs to Him. The Holy Spirit also comforts me regarding salvation: though I fall short of the Glory of God, "... He hath made Him to be sin for us Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5; 21)". Truly, the Glory belongs to Jesus and no other. Bless you Lord Jesus and blessed be your Holy Name!
  • T. Levis - in Reply on John 2
    Just to add a little to discussion:

    Personal experience it is like to many new believers it's learning everything again but better.

    I thought just the other day about this issue.

    Like learning to talk, eat, walk & act all over again, in the Spirit

    Like not going places that cause sin before, not saying hurtful or offensive words etc.

    Good faith : Hebrews 11 vrs. 1-40, James 1 vrs. 1-4,

    Bad faith, may be putting your trust in anything other than God.
