    Hi Sacha.

    Yes it means love, Agape I believe this love for the brothern is assisted by the Holyspirit enabling us to be completely given over to one another, John has a lot to say about this love in his gospel and his letters. 1 John 2:5.

    But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

    This verse seems to suggest when this particular love is present in you for the brothern " here by we KNOW we are in him. This is part of the gifts of the spirit and also a fruit of the spirit. And also the love Peter struggled with in the flesh but when the Holyspirit indwelled him he was committed till his death.

    1 Corinthians 13:13. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

    Hello brother Ezekiel,

    I very much enjoy looking over the 1611 text, pictures of every page, on this site. As you've stated I've noticed some capital letter differences. With the spelling I myself wouldn't really call them errors. With other things like Jerusalem "Ierufalem", evil "euill", up "vp", ointment "oyntment", have "haue", son "fonne" etc. It seems in the old English they had a different way with some vowels and letters in certain words.

    It is enjoyable to look over though. I believe the KJV is the best version of the Holy scripture we have. It is also very interesting to look over the Hebrew and Greek texts and compare with the KJV.

    God Bless brother.
  • Charles Barefoot on Hebrews 2
    Can you live a sinless life?
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Psalms 142
    Tom, you're right. Moses got it right, because I believe he actually SAW the objects, along with getting the instructions in his revelation.
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Matthew 25:34
    Hello, Charles,

    Any time someone asks, "Why did God...?" or "Why did Jesus...?" I think of the question, "Why did God hate Esau?"

    "I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness."Malachi 1:2-3.

    My answer to that question is, "Why did God love Jacob?" He was such a deceiver!

    The fact is that in most cases, God never tells us WHY.

    We could speculate, but for what good?

    "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."Isaiah 55:8-11

    Hi Connie.

    No one knows all there is to know of the scripture, we grow as we study his word, and we learn from others, some scripture is clear and should bring us comfort not fear, If your trust in your salvation is " COMPLETELY " in Christ finish work on the cross YOU HAVE NO NEED OF FEAR OF JUDGEMENT he gave us comfort in his word.

    Romans 8:1. There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

    Here is one for the sabbath and anything else one would think he or she need to add to Christ finish work on the cross.

    Colossians 2:13-15. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    Our faith come from hearing INSPIRED scripture! And we can trust in Christ alone, not our experiences. Thank you.
  • Ezekiel - in Reply on Psalms 142
    Are you KJV believer like me, Tom? I just posted a somewhat lengthy and stimulating note on KJV and KJV-1611. Even if not, still go ahead and read it. Thanks
  • Ezekiel on Romans 8:9
    Hello KJV believers? So am I. Use KJV-1611 which is better than KJV. The words are identical but 1611 has chapter summary, and cross references and literal translations in the margin notes. KJV changed a few capital letters to lower cases or vice versa, for example, like from Prince to prince. 1611 has real spelling errors like Ifaiah for Isaiah. I found about 38 typos so far. Big one. Go to Micah chapter 4 page; it shows Ioel (Joel) instead at the top of it.

    I want to see 1611 large print and hopefully with spelling corrections but it is not available yet. Why did KJV remove chapter summary and margin notes what I consider very useful features? I still wonder!!??@@

    Anybody found KJV English grammar pattern? For example, second person, singular, present and past tense, the verb has either 'st' or 'est' ending. If thou wert = If you were thou wast = you were thou (singular) and ye (plural).

    Third person or object, singular, present tense, the verb has either 'th' or 'eth' ending. He saith, cometh; it hath.

    Satan interferes people from using KJV; he wants them to read corrupt versions. Some of them are really outrageous--completely different thoughts--and some are less serious. We KJV onlyism people are blessed to read it. GOD is perfect and so is HIS Word. Then KJV is the only (or near) perfect GOD'S Word, isn't it? Just think about it. Would HE not provide a genuine Bible for us when HE wants us to know HIM and obey HIS commandments CORRECTLY?

    Do not bother with comparing difficult verses with corrupt versions because they would not help you at all but they would mislead you rather. Ask friends or go to KJV commentary or annotation notes to find out what they mean. If you have one and ask me thru this website, then I will help you gladly. Again stay with KJV. Try to understand them with cross references, and pray to GOD more importantly. Holy Ghost will teach you. Thanks

    The bible is meant to be read by going to where you

    are lead .. a scripture came to me when i was a new christian... in church.. then it just spoke to me as if it was in charge not necessarily the one at the pulpit.

    Bible in a year and I missed/skipped my first bible read of the day. Playing catch up. This is what I get and accept.
  • Peggy - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    Dear Marilyn Taplin,

    The group of end-time purists you describe are the 144,000 sealed from death, during the beasts short rule. The house of Israel and the house of Judah are the two witnesses that stand before God. They are the two olive trees and two candlesticks. These elect are hated so much that their dead bodies will lay 3.5 days in the street, then, taken up at the 7th trumpet.

    Also, the reason for the "days being cut short" is due to the 6th trumpet, day of the Lord strike: Mystery Babylon & the Babylonian system is dramatically taken in under 1 hour; made a desolate wilderness. The attack is so powerful, it knocks the earth off its axis (Isaiah 24:20) causing 1/3rd sun light removed. The darkness ensures the elects survival, like the woman in Revelation 12 holds on.
  • Marilyn Taplin - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    Doesn't the Bible say the sexually perverse are prideful? Are you mistaken as to who the prideful ones are?

    Romans 1:21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imagination and their foolish heart was darkened. (speaking of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah). They bring a darkness to earth. They are spiritually blind.
  • Marilyn on Psalms 75

    When will the Comments and enjoyment of the Scriptures open up. I miss so much

    reading how Christians uses and interrupts the Word of God.

    When can we expect this to happen?

  • Marilyn Taplin - in Reply on Hosea 8:4
    You mention Romans 1:21-24. Verse 23 ""And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into images made like to corruptible man, and birds, and fourfooted beasts and creeping things." Those people mentioned in Romans, those given to unnatural sex, have made false images of God. They are false images of God. When God looks at them he sees, animals, beasts, birds, and creeping things. This breaks the second commandment which reads, "Exodus 20:4 "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth." God sees the sexually perverse as animals, etc. Remember when he comes to earth he states this is a generation of vipers? A viper is a snake and Jesus sees an entire generation as snakes---creeping things.

    God sees Adam and Eve as camels. Jeremiah 2:23, " How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? See thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done; thou art a swift dromedary traversing her way." A swift dromedary is a camel, a beast. And the cross-reference in my King James Study Bible takes us back to Adam and Eve. Genesis 3:12, "The woman thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I did eat." Husbands and wives who commit unnatural sex cannot say they are not a false image of God for they are a false image. God see them as a camel. They break the second commandment. When God looks at them, he sees a camel.

  • SkipVought - in Reply on Romans 12

    I'm not sure I really understand your opening statement...

    "Jesus Christ is come in the flesh (Being witnessed by his own blood in the earth.) Therefore, IT IS SINFUL TO DIE A BODILY DEATH."

    If "IT IS SINFUL TO DIE A BODILY DEATH," then according to that allegation, Jesus did something sinful, which contradicts, Hebrews 4:15, that Jesus never sinned even though He was tempted like we are.

    "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." Hebrews 4:15.

    Perhaps you could explain what you meant to clear things up. That would really help me.

    Thank you.
  • Sarah Chessiy - in Reply on Galatians 3

    To answer your question, women should not preach in church. But in other religious churches that believe God is not real or Jesus is still dead, those kind of churches probably, more than likely will allow or want women to preach. But in churches that believe in the KJV Bible, they do not believe that women should preach. A couple or few may allow women to preach, but pretty much all churches believing in the KJV version do not allow or want or even let women preach. Does that answer your question?

    It makes me very sad to read your message ,you are way too aggressive ,this attitude will only make people withdraw from you and not wish to enter into any dialogue with you . Please dont message a sister that way ,you are pushing people away from you . We should be able to discuss and even disagree without judging and condeming each other.

    Why did Jesus send Paul to the Gentiles?
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Luke 23:31
    John, this is a wonderful thought. Thank you.

    This was Jesus' response to women who were distraught and crying as Jesus was being lead to Golgotha to be crucified. He had been beaten repeatedly the previous night and into the early morning, slapped, spit on, crowned with thorns, hauled before the Jewish high priest, King Herod and Roman Governor Pilate and now, about to be crucified at 9:00 am. He pauses on His way long enough to utter these words to the sobbing women...

    "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?"Luke 23:28-31
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Psalms 142
    Ezekiel gave you a good description. Here's a place where David used the breast plate, ephod, to get an answer from God.

    "And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David. And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all."1Sa 30:6-8

  • SkipVought - in Reply on Psalms 134
    Greetings, Morton, on this Lord's Day.

    "The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest."Isaiah 34:14

    In this verse is a Hebrew word that is difficult to understand, that the King James scholars translated, "screech owl." This word is lylyth. This word is related to another Hebrew word, laylah, "night."

    This is one of those places in The Bible that is very difficult to understand. But keep this in mind:

    The MAIN things are the PLAIN things.

    There is no doubt about Jesus and what He did when He "was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification." Romans 4:25.
  • Connie - in Reply on Luke 17
    Chris thank you for understanding my personal testimony of how God is very much involved in people's life on a personal level. I hoped to help here but my views are very misunderstood here. I don't think the world is ready for my testimony. I have not found much kindness here on the subject of my love for God.
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Galatians 5
    Greetings, Brett, on the Lord's Day.

    John 3:16 tells us who Jesus was and what He accomplished, that whoever believes IN Him, shall not perish, but rather have everlasting life. Believing IN means putting your trust IN Jesus, His death and Resurrection, just Jesus ALONE, not Jesus PLUS other requirements.

    Galatians 5 talks about those "other requirements" that weigh people down in bondage. "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."Galatians 5:1. Read the whole chapter.

    He was warning them about Judiazers, that were telling believers that they had to keep the Mosaic Law. Paul was telling them that they don't have to keep the Mosaic Law, be circumcised or baptized or give to the church or go to church or ANYTHING added to saving faith in Jesus.

    Grace alone by Faith alone in Christ alone as instructed by The Scripture alone!
  • Connie - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    S Spencer my blind faith is to trust God for his guidance in understanding of scriptures and to accept that some things I am unable to understand.

    Like my faith is not movable on my set belief that God is unexplainable in my vocabulary.

    I can only trust that tug that i feel in my heart and soul.

    My Bible is old and worn . I am an adult survivor of child trafficking. I have seen the most unGodly cruelties of mankind upon children that still exists today. I have seen how evil sets itself up in places working for the good guys so to speak.

    I am not bitter nor do i blame or judge the many good people for the actions of the few.

    I do not know what happens when I die , but i have read that when i die it is to late to seek God. So I seek God while I am alive. I fear my judgment day . I know that I am going to have to answer for my actions.

    I am not seeking nor asking for forgiveness of a sin if i can not refrain from the actions that offend God.

    So I ask for guidance about not being able to refuse to work on the sabbath day because of the job that I give God thanks to have. Yet man judges me for not being at church.

    But the scriptures comfort me because i do set a time to honor God. This is what i call my blind faith. To see the world and hear what is said and just trust God to help me understand.

    With or without the approval of man . I fear judgment. I live a life that I can proudly say is moral and kind. I am not without sin. But I trust God to guide me. Understand?
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Isaiah 33:18
    Greetings, Sarah, on The Lord's Day.

    "And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat."Leviticus 16:2.

    Read the whole chapter and you'll see how particular God was with what Aaron was to do, EXACTLY as instructed.

    However, there is no reliable historical account that would support the rope around the ankle story.

    How Can The Church Leadership Help Preserve the Civil Rights of Religious People and Protect them from Domestic Terrorist Predators? There are Currently Cases Of Forced Prostitution on Church Members. They Need to Feel Safe.
