    Facebook is now not allowing Christian content to play on their site. Even virtual church is now being censored..this verse came to mind today as I saw that many Christian and Jewish videos will no longer play ..

    Ernest, you said our souls return to God the Father; yet the verse you quoted says the spirit returns.

    I thought the soul is our body of flesh.

    Ezekiel 18:4 ....the soul that sinneth it SHALL DIE.

    Prayer Warrior is an old expression that I grow up with. My focus point is concerning the prayer of faith avail much. So how or what characteristics traits according to the reading of the book James, will get us to this level of prayer?

    Willie,

    I don't think there is no such thing as a prayer warrior in scripture,

    Just be humble and that's enough,

    God resist the proud.

    Sister Jeannie, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    The day that CHRIST IN YOU arrived, a living FIRE was ALSO kindled IN YOU (for our God is a consuming FIRE Hebrews 12:29).

    If you have ever watched a trash pile be burned, you know it takes time. Even after the flames died down the coals stay alive under the surface. If other trash is put upon the coals the flame appears and destroys them also. CHRIST IS OUR FIRE; live in peace of this knowledge; you will become PERFECT, like him. He will DESTROY the unwanted trash in you. He knows exactly when and how. We are the POT he is the POTTER; be still and behold THE SALVATION OF GOD. Knowing the END (you will be created in the IMAGE OF GOD) CAUSES us through Christ's GRACE to ENDURE.

    When CHRIST IN YOU arrived the ACCUSER was cast out.

    Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is SALVATION, and strength, and the kingdom of GOD (CHRIST IN YOU), and the power of his Christ: for the ACCUSER of our brethren is CAST DOWN, which accused them before our God day and night.

    Philippians 4:7 And the PEACE OF GOD, which passeth all understanding, shall KEEP your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

    Peter Stome,

    Whether you're belief is right or wrong I believe you are out of line to come on a open Christian site and call people stupid for not believing what you believe.

    Are you really trying to help or are you just concerned with winning the argument.

    Peter if you are right and really trying to help, you can't seek and destroy, you will loose any opertunity to help them.

    It seems that you have let the rapture debate consume you.

    I believe in the pre trib, and heard mostly all the arguments. but I wouldn't dare call anyone stupid because we don't agree.

    In the book of Job, what ever happen to his wife? Did she die and when?

    Laura,

    When we die, our souls return to God the Father, not to Jesus.

    (Ecclesiastes 12:7) Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    Sunday is the first day of the week and would be considered a work day anyway according to the scriptures. Also it is known that it is lawful to serve God(or do good which still serves God by the way...) even on the Sabbath as Jesus Christ the Messiah did. Remember that we are to do our best to serve Jesus Christ every day. Ask the Father for forgiveness and do your best. Don't read the scriptures. Study the scriptures try to understand what is good and incorporate the teachings into your life... study the Bible from beginning to end... and then study it some more.

    2 Timothy 2:15

    Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth

    Edwin,

    God commissioned Jeremiah to relocate David's throne, and the arch of the covenant, before king Nebuchadnezzar could plunder the temple. If you Google Jacob's stone you will see it underneath the throne where kings have been coronated on. God's promise that David's throne would continue unbroken is true (Jeremiah 33:17).

    Jesse, You say at our death we go in spirit to be with Jesus. If Jesus is the spirit of God and God is indwelling man then it appears we will be in others as he is in us. Is this correct? Sounds like heaven is man.
  • David on Judges 19
    The chapter begins with "And it came to pass in those days, when there was no king in Israel,..." We cannot pass judgement on all the characters involved here because then we will be no better than the men that brought the woman before Christ, demanding her judgement because she was caught in the very act of adultery. We know Christ's reaction. I always wondered where the man in this incident was. (another post).

    As usual, the Lord desires us to look within our selves and make righteous judgments. Decisions that will make an impact in our own lives and where we live. Our homes, neighborhood, cities, states, nation. I am by no means perfect, nor am I holier than anyone else.

    A sad commentary on society, and even so that it happened in a city of the Israelites. I was taught to take care of our women folk. (1Peter 3:7) But we are in a point of our society that we do as we please, for there was no king in Israel at this time. v. 1.

    We have abandon our core beliefs and are as rudderless boats "tossed about with every wind of doctrine." Eph 4:14

    We must fall on the mercies of God, 2 Chronicles 7:14.

    Our hope is to bring as many people to the knowledge and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ before the trumpet sounds and the church is taken to heaven. Rise up my brethren, for our redemption is very near. Get right with the Lord, pray for others, let's go out and make disciples Matthew 28:18-20.

    God bless all.

    Brother Fred,

    Yes, it is the little horn of Daniel 7 verse 8 the Lord uses to change the heart of man through fiery judgment!
  • Fred Scanlan
    Watching the sun rise while looking across the fields of corn, I believe only, that His purpose is to bring us unto Him .A mighty God ,who through the sacrifice of His only begotten Son , has redeemed man and the seed that will follow, even too those that love Him!

    The silo's that soon will hold the grain, that will feed the world. Such is His word toward man. A word full of love , that it too will go out and bring forth more life, even unto a new generation! These things are according to His will, how wonderful are His ways, even past finding out!

    How beautiful, is the ground, that this country is made of! Oh, how green and full of life!

    Yet, we hear him say ! There will be a day of judgment, fiery, without respect of persons places or things! Behold how a little leaven will change the heart of man! Look how it works!
  • Edwin S Bedford
    You are correct Judah and Benjamin were in Palestine when Yeshuah "Jesus " walked this earth, The other 10 tribes had already travelled over the Caucus Mountains and into Europe long before this time, even landing on the Jurassic Coast of England in a place called Mara-zion, near Penzance.

    As a gentile but saved by grace, what about the Law, including the 4th Commandment on Sabbath, does it affect my serving God on Sunday?

    David

    A-MEN, to that! No where in the Word of God will we find this made up word rapture. This is what happens when people reads commentaries rather then the true Word of God. Galatians 1:6-10 ( I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

    Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

    But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.)

    TO: Jeannie Myers on 1 John 4

    You did not mention if the people you can not tolerate is sinner or saint. Sometimes it is better for Christians to separate themselves, (if possible) from anybody that may provoke them to anger, especially unbelievers; 2 Corinthians 6:14

    (Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?)

    Every time you start thinking on these negative thoughts, remind yourself of God's Word, First John 4:4 (Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.) The most important thing you can do is ask God to forgive you,/ you forgive them, and constantly pray, may the Lord Jesus help you in your trials.

    S. Spencer,

    Lets establish a time frame for, before the millennium age, by the scriptures you referenced.

    Revelation 16:16 -just before Christ's return Gog's army is gathered.

    Joel 3:2 "I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat...."

    Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for (the day of the LORD is near) in the valley of decision.

    Ezekiel 38:15 -day of the Lord attack on Israel.

    Revelation 20:8 the post millennium battle. How is it that Gog was destroyed by Jesus at His coming, and only a thousand years later, Gog's numbers are as the sand of the sea? I suspect this is a metaphor of an allegory, wrapped in an enigma working here.

    Psalm 83:2-8 David's prayer against Israel's oppressors. You have something here, great job. The mention of Edom (Russia/Esau) as the root cause gives merit to this last conflict reference.

    Hello Lex. Others here have responded, which should encourage you that we are mindful of what you are going through, identifying with your struggles, & by being in Christ, there is always hope ahead & only His Light that is at the 'end of the tunnel of despair'.

    Re-reading your comments over & over again, I'm wondering whether you have really been taught in God's Word & therefore unable to believe & hang on to its Truths. You only know what took place when you first repented of your sins, turning to Jesus for forgiveness & then subsequently baptized in water. The Word of God tells us that we can know that our salvation is both real & secure: Romans 10:9 "if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou SHALT be saved." And verse 13, "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord SHALL be saved." If we have called upon the Lord, putting our faith in His Work for us by His death & resurrection, God will fulfil His Promise that we will receive His Salvation & be welcomed into His family.

    The other point that you can take confidence in is the fact of your distress over the state of your soul after being saved. A person who doesn't belong to the Lord, has no such concern, simply because the things of Christ are meaningless to him. The fact that you are agonizing about your salvation & unbelief must prove God's Spirit working in you: maybe keeping you restless until you take God seriously for all that He has said. If you have doubts & fears about your salvation or the Truth of God's Word, then these are not from within you but from the enemy of our souls who wants to keep you bound & therefore weak in faith & Christian experience. Spending time on things that are contrary to the Bible & your salvation, instead of God's Word, gives Satan a fertile ground to work with. Remember, God does forgive us our sins, but we still have to believe in that fact & continue on in our walk with Him.

    Just remember which half of the Bible you are looking at.

    Apostle Paul saw 3rd Heaven. John and Peter saw Jesus speaking to Moses and Elijah. Stephen the evangelist saw heaven open and Jesus stand up..as the people stoned him to death.

    If someone says something that doesn't sound right; use the Search Box on this website and look stuff up.

    I was playing around with it one day and typed CHINA in the search box!!!!! Up pops 3-4 verses.

    I read them, got out the ancient names maps.

    There are 3 scriptures that say China and the Mideast are the nations that will afflict the end times with Pestilence/Pandemic mass national deaths. Poor People with not enough food. Wow, huh? Stop eating sushi perhaps? I don't know.
  • Put on Christ even though we may not want to - in Reply on 1 John 4
    I had problems like that when I was younger. Now I'm a bit more wiser. Evangelizing complete strangers works that out of you. Because you see with Jesus's eyes and heart.

    We are to be the Body of Christ when we are confronted with those feelings. The heart of the Lord is Mercy.

    Usually, it is Who is inside of you, that is being repelled by What is in them. It will help if you google: The Armor of God, Teaching. Do not read Wikipedia posts as they are google teachings.

    Ephesians 6: If a person, Christian or Unbeliever, has an invisible evil spirit at work, in the vicinity; trying its best to bring enmity into the situation:

    That is your enemy. It's invisible but you can see, feel and experience the FRUIT that spirit is revealing it's presence. It may be trying to shoo you away from telling that person anything about Jesus.

    You need to put each piece of your Armor on and know what each piece does. Read in the Gospels, what Jesus said and how he responded to spiritual confrontations.

    Sometimes it really helps if we make an appointment to run by the Church at lunch and have a prayer with Pastors wife. It's private and confidential. I know she and Pastor will pray for me later. It's cool.

    We're all called to be likable; not necessarily 'like' everyone we meet.

    The Holy Spirit opened up JOB 1, to me concerning satan and his bad angels. He accuses us right and left. The sneak around observing what we do, what we say under our breath about bad drivers and grumpy people. Satan saw that Job was afraid his kids were not worshiping God right so Job did it for them. Satan sees our fears, our actions, mean mumbling, our wealth and luxury's we like; knows all our friends with "loose mouth", not comforting, speech. Satan destroyed everything Job had, and left Job sitting in the dirt.

    It's best to be silent and trust God even more than we do now. I think you have this under control, you just don't like it. No one does.

    Peter,

    I disagree with those ideas. You didn't say whether you believed Luke 17:36? If someone reads the context of the chapter it's clear what's happening. You believe you have an obligation to the truth and others who disagree with you may likewise feel the same obligation to correct your unsound Bible interpretations as well. It must be noted that this isn't a salvation issue.

    The best solution rather than to instigate quarrels or to call people mean names is to pray to God for wisdom, discernment and understanding of His Word. Have you tried this?

    Thank you very much for your blessings and kind words.

  • S Spencer - in Reply on 1 John 4
    Hi Jeannie.

    You're not alone in this struggle, there's areas we continue to grow by praying and continuing in the word,

    Our spiritual growth is increased by God, not our own efforts, That's one of the several things I never could do on my own, and compassion would just come from nowhere, It's the fruit of the spirit, we are to abide in Christ, We may be able to control the our actions externally but inwardly is where we need help,

    Look what Jesus tells the Pharisees:

    Matthew 23:25-28. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

    Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

    Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

    There's a Devine connection between 2 true believers, a brotherhood created by the Lord himself. They have the same Spirit, connected to the same vine and have the same vine dresser,

    When there seems to be some disconnect that want mend there is a chance someone is not connected to the vine,

    This is a problem in the Christian community,

    Different views of doctrine has exposed carnal or false Christians by hate that can be seen, It is something to be concerned with but it may be an area the Lord will have to deal with.

    Proverbs 16:7. When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

    God bless.
