    When my mom was in the hospital, they took her off her blood pressure medicine and put her on 3 different ones that didn't work. Second day I STRONGLY demanded they put her back on Amlodipine. Next day she's in normal range again.

    Ask your primary care doctor to let you try that medicine for a week. Get a blood pressure monitor.

    The cardiologist is going to tell you to eat chicken, fish and not a lot of red meat. Eat a small bowl of 5 minute oatmeal every day.

    Oatmeal attaches to cholesterol in the bloodstream and escorts it out immediately.

    Cut out most fried foods and fast foods. Think of cigarettes as a stick of dynamite.

    I'm praying that the Holy Spirit will come alongside you to comfort you and convict you about cheats. He's so Gentle you don't even mind it. Trust in HIM and you'll be blessed with better health and less worry.

    Steak and baked potato are now on the monthly rewards list. And so is feeling better. :)

  • Was Noah39s Son HAM Black and Cursed - in Reply on James 1:2
    Cain was cursed. Not Noah or his sons.

    Sons of Noah: Shem, Ham and Japheth

    The Genesis flood narrative tells how Noah and his three sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, together with their wives, were saved from the Deluge to repopulate the Earth. ... In chapter 11 verses 10-26 a second list of descendants of Shem names Abraham and thus the Israelites (Jesus).

    In the Book of Jubilees (160-150 BC) the names of the wives of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth are as follows:

    * Wife of NOAH - Emzara.

    * Wife of Shem - Sedeqetelebab.

    * Wife of Ham - Na'eltama'uk.

    * Wife of Japheth - Adataneses.

    In the Biblical view, the listed children of Japheth, Shem and Ham (allegedly) correspond to various historic nations and peoples. In the typical interpretation, these sons of Noah correspond to three races: European, Semitic, and African. Alternate divisions claim Euro-Asian Japhet, Semitic Shem, and Afro-Asian Ham.

    The Genesis Rabba midrash lists Naamah, the daughter of Lamech and sister of Tubal-Cain, as the wife of Noah, as does the 11th-century Jewish commentator Rashi in his commentary on Genesis 4:22.

    In the medieval midrash Parry, J. H. (ed.). "5:15". Book of Jasher. Translated by Moses, Samuel., the name of Noah's wife is said to be Naamah, daughter of Enoch.

    Since the 17th century a number of suggestions have been made that relate the name Ham to a Hebrew word for "burnt", "black" or "hot", to the Egyptian word m for "servant" or the word m for "majesty" or the Egyptian word kmt for "Egypt".[4] A 2004 review of David Goldenberg's The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity and Islam (2003) states that Goldenberg "argues persuasively that the biblical name Ham bears no relationship at all to the notion of blackness and as of now is of UNKNOWN (color) etymology.

    You asked, now you can do some googling on where Ham lived and why people think he was black? I think he was dark because of the sun exposure; he lived in Egypt.

  • WHO WERE THE NICOLAITANS on Matthew 18:20
    Who Were the Nicolaitans, And What Was Their Doctrine and Deeds?

    But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. Revelation 2:6

    Have you ever wondered who the "Nicolaitans" were, mentioned in the book of Revelation? Whoever they were, Jesus loathed their doctrine and hated their deeds. Let's delve into this subject today to see if we can ascertain the identity of this group. What was their damnable doctrine? What deeds were they committing that elicited such a strong reaction from Jesus?

    Let's begin in Revelation 2:6, where Jesus told the church of Ephesus, "But this thou hast [in your favor], that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."

    Jesus was proud of the church of Ephesus for their "hatred" of the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which He also "hated."

    The word "hate" is a strong word, so let's see exactly what it means. It comes from the Greek word miseo, which means to hate, to abhor, or to find utterly repulsive. It describes a person who has a deep-seated animosity, who is antagonistic to something he finds to be completely objectionable. He not only loathes that object, but rejects it entirely. This is not just a case of dislike; it is a case of actual hatred.

    The thing Jesus hated about them was their "deeds." The word "deeds" is the Greek word erga, which means works. However, this word is so all-encompassing that it pictures all the deeds and behavior of the Nicolaitans; including their actions, beliefs, conduct, and everything else connected to them.

  • MANKIND CAME FROM DUST - in Reply on James 1:2
    Back in Genesis chapter 1, God formed Adam from DUST. Eve was taken from Adams rib, and God made Woman.

    All colors of people's came from DUST!!!

    From the beginning until the End.

    If people are HELL BENT on persecuting NON-WHITE people....

    No matter how many times they get baptized in water, they will still be the COLOR they got from the DUST.

    What people need is to be Baptised into Jesus Christ so their MINDS can be renewed!!

    It has been scientifically PROVEN that all colors are in dust. White people came from a colorless piece of dust. You ever find totally white dust/dirt in a flower bed???

    Guess What!? God is Spirit. The Holy Ghost is Spirit. THEY ARE NOT WHITE!!!!

    They are Spirit.

    How can you go around Hating People that are a different color of DUST?? It does not compute. I say that if dust is a problem with your perceptions..... you are NOT born again....YET.

    It is entirely possible that people in Heaven are the color of dust. What are you going to do then? Heaven is decked out in all kinds of jewels, every kind and every color: rubies, sapphires, amethyst, jade, ONYX, etc.

    Looks to ME, like, God Loves Colors.

    HATE is not of God.

    God is LOVE.

    Mishael : prove me wrong; biblically and scientifically
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    Both. We're told to choose life. Even if it's An Old Testament Covenant, it's still valid.

    The New Covenant that Jesus ratified with His Blood, is what saves us from our sins. It's a new, better Covenant.

    We are not able to live sin free. That's why we must receive Jesus. It doesn't cost us anything; but it cost Jesus, his Life.

    Which He laid down and; after 3 days arose and took His life back up Again. The Bible says: to count the cost.

    21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.

    22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

    26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

    27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

    28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord.

    29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

    30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

    31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.

    be quiet and learn

    27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

    28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
  • Will - in Reply on Genesis 1
    thats not a true statement

    4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

    11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts.

    no one should listen to your philosophy

    8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

    The word is what cleanse you

    the word of God is Called water

    26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

    41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

    4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

    5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

    Saints is another name for Gods Children Israel

    14He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.

    5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

    6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.

    7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.

    the only people that made a covenant with the Lord is Israel

    For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:

    4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;

    5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

    the sabbath never changes and we must observe the sabbath throughout our generations...

    16 wherefore the children of israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

    17 it is a sign between me and the children of israel for ever: for in six days the lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

    God does not tempt any man...

    who taught you the word?

    Philosophy will kill you?

    13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

    14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

    15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

    Does the say

    be a christian

    or

    does it say

    keep my commandments?

    4 they have said, come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of israel may be no more in remembrance.

    and we being the children of god

    must come back to our true nationality

    and put away the labels that was placed on us

    by the oppressor

    5 one shall say, i am the lord's; and another shall call himself by the name of jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the lord, and surname himself by the name of israel.

    by the way what is the first commandment

    was the first commandment addressed to christians?

  • Ralph on 2 Timothy 1:12
    On a cold November evening in 1960, I had walked approximately 1 mile in 30 degree temperature to check out what the weekly movie schedule looked like.

    There was a rescue mission, an old converted beer bar, about 6 doors downs from the movie.

    As I approached, I could hear singing from the mission. It was a song that my Dad had sang many times. It stirred my inwards that night and I stood outside looking into the dimly lighted building.

    About that time, the singing ceased and the "pastor" begin praying.

    Th wind had picked up and I was cold. I quietly opened the door and took a seat just inside.

    After the pastor's prayer, he asked my name and invited me to join the rest of the congregation, approximately 15-18 persons.

    I remember everyone was praying over me, and I remembered the most calm feeling I ever had.

    These were "strange people" to me, but I felt they all liked me very much.

    I remember kneeling at the "alter", I remember crying until I was so weak my legs weren't holding me.

    In an instant, I knew I had been "touched by God's Son". I knew by the changes in my life over the next few weeks. Jesus had been there that night.

    As time went on, HIS Spirit led my entire life.

    Now, at age 84, I still cherish those few moments at the rescue mission.

    I love the Lord Jesus with all my heart, but have not really been an"on fire follower."

    I pray that all who reads this will pray for me and most of all:

    I pray that each of you will have that one special moment in you life where you can be certain you were spiritually and physically touched by our Lord and Savior.

    Thank you Jesus for forgiving me my sins and providing such a long, wonderful life with you.

    God bless all who read this and God bless America,

    If we aren't of this "righteous seed, specific nationality," what would be the point of being a Christian? Why even try? Why believe?

    Are you of this "righteous seed, specific nationality?"
  • Donna on Job 13:15
    I believe that the Holy Spirit is revealing to us as believers that in this life we will experience pain and suffering, but He will always bring us out with the victory every time.

    It is a misconception of many, that because we are Christians we are exempt from life's difficulties, but Jesus told us in this life we will have tribulation, but we can be comforted in the fact that He has overcome the world.

    Lastly, this passage also reveals that God is sovereign and that the devil does not have the power to tempt us without God's permission. God is faithful to provide a way of escape from every temptation, and we always come out victorious and blessed as a result of our endurance.

    On Ezk.ch23::::: the mixed up comments This is Our God/Lord speaking to Us n warning Us of Our Wrong doings, we thought it was hidden,but we cannot hide from God.

    Just look around examine your life.... Stop judging God n let God be our Judge.....If we seek Him then We will find Him

    Through the Blood of Jesus The only One that is Perfect....God bless the true Believers container seeking, we will find Him

    In Deuteronomy 28 was Moses talking to the Israelites about blessing and curses?
  • Rosemary - in Reply on Psalms 1
    Baptism is a commandment. Whenever the word "must" is used there is no getting around it. I don't quite understand what an "act of obedience" is. I know it is written "to obey is better than sacrifice". If we don't obey, we sacrifice our salvation. Jesus said "Ye must be born again" or we cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Genesis 1:14
    Afternoon meditation: God on the seventh day rested in his works. Mankind in their day separated themselves from God eternally. Yet God in his Mercy while in His rest promised mankind a way out of this damnation by faith in his Son. In the fullness of time as man's faith had dimmed and man living fully in his own day, in order to have peace again, to have faith again, to have reconciliation with God, had to prepare a Passover feast. God's Son left his Sabbath rest and returned to man's day to be the Spotless sacrifice for the Passover feast. The Lamb was slain and the blood was applied to the believing kind. Together the Lamb, Jesus Christ and the faith of his believing kind entered into the spiritual Sabbath.
  • Bob Grove on Jude 1
    In verse 2 at the end of the verse it says " the faith was once delivered unto the saints ".

    When did this take place ?

    Jesus taught the 12 apostles and before and after his crucifixion .

    Judas was replaced before Pentecost . The qualifications for the replacement was that He and not she had to witness Jesus from the time of Jesus Baptism by John the Baptist to Seeing Jesus alive from the dead .

    These men received the One and only completed faith . The Holy Spirit help in the understanding as Jesus left to be at the Fathers right hand . The Holy Spirit continues to this day to help us understand the written complete faith found in the New Testament . There are no revisions or add ons to the Apostles doctrine found in the books of the Bible .

    The doctrine should be very precise not a matter of vague interpretation , of which leads us to many denominations etc and room for heresy to breed .

    2 Timothy 3 v 16 , 17 It's all provable in the Bible . Since the apostles passed on evil men have made the faith many things . But the one faith remains in the scriptures , and with the Holy Spirits teaching you can find it and be assured of it ! God bless you as you seek the truth that sets us free from deception .
