    for this Spirit of Heaviness. Lift up your prayer as your hearts are lifted in praise.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Why did God walk them around till all of the older generation died off ?

    He gave them everything: clothes and shoes that didn't wear out; manna from Heaven and water.

    God was good to them, yet they still whined.

    Finally, they were ready to go over into the Promised Land. Moses was not to go with them, but he did get to see it as he climbed the mountain where he died. He gave everything he had to Joshua, to lead the people over.

    Why did the older people never go inside of the tent of God's presence? Why did they stand outside and never go in?
  • Mishael on Dominion Demons - in Reply on Revelation 1
    God created Adam in his image and likeness. He gave Adam DOMINION over the earth and all the creatures on it.

    He did not give Adam dominion over other humans.

    There were "inhabitants" living on earth, who were the 1/3 of created angels who revolted and followed SATAN to the earth. They had bodies at that point. However all of them DIED in the flood of Noah. They no longer had bodies. Their spirits survived to become principalities and powers; DEMONS.

    Their desire now is to find human bodies to inhabit.

    Jesus cast out devils from one possessed man, and the demons begged Jesus to let them possess some pigs. He did but the pigs ran over a cliff and Died. No bodies again.

    There are lots of people on earth that invite demons to inhabit their bodies: people in the occult. ie: witches, warlocks, card readers, phone-a-psychic, astrologers, people who read their horoscope every day!

    The Bible mentions 'familiar' spirits (demons). They have no bodies so they can look through your past history and give you the info and then people believe people who give readings are the real deal.

    They want to turn people away from God and His Word (The Bible) to get a word of encouragement; as we do in here. We encourage and teach others what we have learned. I know God doesn't want us to read our horoscope and later, read a chapter of the Bible. That is a MIXTURE, and God hates mixtures. Look it up.

    Most Churches do not teach on these matters! They don't want to scare your Tithe, elsewhere. Pay for silence. Then you experience some horrid things in your life and you wonder why God doesn't love you? Why doesn't He answer your prayers?

    Put it together! Why should He speak to you if you're going to run to an occultist or psychic, to get a word too??

    Throw out your idols! Your heart will lead you to them. If you have extended family that does that stuff; stay away. If your church won't mention it? Find another who does. Get free.
  • Mari B - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Water baptism is definitely needed. Read Mark 16:16. 1 Peter 3:18-20. Romans 6:3-8. There's more. Even the parting of the Red sea was a type of baptism. Same as Noahs Ark. Read it for yourself. It's all in the Bible. The Bible says you must be born again to SEE the kingdom. But water & the Spirit are needed to enter into the kingdom of God. In the book of Corinthian 11, it speaks of the heavenly language. It is a language that only God knows but it's me talking to him from my heart. If I know not what to pray then this is where the Ho!y Spirit comes in to help. So many ppl think they have the Holy Ghost but do not. Study what the Bible says. Do not go to a commentary for answers.Do not Go to YouTube for answers. Go to God. Many churches out there do not teach all truth. Only partial. This is a matter of making it to heaven or not. Take no chances. You will receive power once the Holy Ghost has come upon you. I speak the truth & you were told what I wrote is truth. Pray & ask God for the a revelation. Open your heart for truth. Baptism has always been in Jesus name from the early church days. Research that truth.
  • Grungebyte on Isaiah 45:7
    From Gwynn Matthews on Isaiah 45:7

    >>I truly believe that God created good and evil so that we can have a choice...

    More to the point, Free Will is the single best gift God the Father has given us. No other entities that God has created in the entire Universe has been so gifted. We human beings are unique.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 5
    Ken well said. I might add the Pharisee Jews also were condemned of Jesus for their hypocrisy.

    Luke 12:1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

    Matthew Chapter 16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake [it] not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

    12 Then understood they how that he bade [them] not beware of the LEAVEN leaven of bread, but of the DOCTRINE doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

    Matthew 6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the HYPOCRITES hypocrites do in the SYNAGOGUES synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    Matthew 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

    Matthew 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. ...ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    The Pharisee Jews would talk the talk and not walk the walk.

    Matthew 23:4 For they (Pharisees) bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
  • Grung on Isaiah 45:7
    It's interesting that King Cyrus is called anointed since King Cyrus wasn't a Jew. He was a Magi or Zoroastrian. That means that Magiism or Zoroastrianism is the only religion not condemned in the Bible. In fact it is exalted by not only King Cyrus but the 3 Magi who came to Jesus on His birth after following the star from the East - or Persia.

Actually there is one other but it is merely a sect of the oldest living religion that Christians think is a 4-letter word.

    Mishael I forgot this companion scripture to the church with Moses

    Acts Chapter 7

    36 He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.

    37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.

    38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and [with] our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:

    church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sinai

    39 To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust [him] from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,
  • PETRA ALEXANDRE on Proverbs 14:26
    what does this really means: In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.
  • Cleveland Jones on Revelation 12:9
    we sometime wonder why certain thing happen in life we question why well we all have fell short of GOD laws then we put the satin in the Whitehouse to lead us and we see who he really is but we refuse to believe some of us he show us who he really is what the bible says about for the love of money and love of him self so much hate and greed will destroy us all and false profits thank you and god bless
  • Ken Beltran - in Reply on Matthew 5
    The righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees was the self perceived belief that they were obtaining right to Salvation based on conformance to Law and by merit of their Abraham ancestry.

    We know this side of the Cross that this is impossible for man, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

    We, in Christ have His impuded (credited) Righteousness as a Gift of His Grace.

    Have you accepted His Gift?

    Blessings and Happy Father's Day all,

    Ken

  • Pastor Ula Aiono on Psalms 72
    Psalms 72 is King Solomon's testimony of how kings and leaders of God's people Israel should lead and follow God's

    Commandments. They will be an example for the rulers and leaders of the world.
  • D.J. - in Reply on Exodus 15
    Chris,

    Paul's understanding of sin and its transmission through Adam in Romans 5:12 is absolutely correct!

    The beginning of sin and its transmission is in no way affected by the creation of all the races in Genesis 1:26-28, as well as the beginning of the race through Adam in Genesis 2:7; eventually becoming known as "Hebrews" (look at Genesis 40:15, Exodus 3:18, etc.)

    Original sin was not transmitted through a particular bloodline, but rather through the Spirit and the Will of God.

    Had Adam fulfilled his responsibility, then there would have been no need for the promise of Genesis 3:15, and we would all be living in the 3rd dispensation of time now, right here; heaven on earth. But, that did not happen, and 6000 years later we are still waiting for His second Coming.

    If you want to believe that all races of humans came from Adam that is your choice. That does not affect the saving grace of Jesus Christ. I have given you Biblical reference (man, flesh, Sons of God, giants, the flood, dispensations of time) for the position I make, as well as definitions of Hebrew words for assistance and reference.

    Your Biblical explanation (or lack of one) concerning HOW the other races came to be upon the earth reinforces your shaky position on such an important topic(s).

    I will restate that GOD specifically refers to "nations" and "gentiles" and "heathen" and "people" as FOREIGN to the specific tribe and nation and people known as Israel. God making this distinction throughout ALL Scripture should be a big clue.

    Gold does not lie in the streets and on the pathways; we have to dig a little to find it. So also is the understanding of the Word of God! (2 Timothy 2:15)

    The Bible was not written in English, it was originally written in Hebrew, Chaldean, and Greek (N.T.). A Bible Concordance is a must for every Bible student (that doesn't know Biblical Hebrew, Chaldean, and Greek).
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Mishael - Paul says to the Corinthians (A city in Greece) that the church was with Moses in the wilderness.

    The church did not start in Acts, it was already there under Moses.

    1 Corinthians Chapter 10: 1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all OUR FATHERS our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

    2 And were all baptized unto MOSES Moses in the cloud and in the sea; (Red Sea)

    3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; (Manna)

    4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

    5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

    So was Paul the apostle to the "Gentiles" and it seems he was not speaking to Jews? After all Paul is in Greece.

    2 easy questions for you

    1. Does God love everyone? (exclude Satan) Humans only

    2. Would the Lord deceive people?

    Scriptural proof only please. the answers might surprise you.

    Hi Bob.

    Peace.

    Thank you for reading and your input. Much appreciated! The limited available space to write in is at least helping me to be more concise. Thanks!
  • Mike on Genesis 1:16
    The 4th day is about the government of God upon us.the kingdom/reign of God. We are to fear God who is One and keep His commandments.

    God made 2 great lights.

    God set the 2 lights in the firmament (the opened hearing ear) of Heaven. Hear, O Israel.

    The greater light is the first and greatest commandment to rule the children of the Day who are to love God with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.

    The second, lesser light is like the first. to love our neighbor as ourselves. When we have love for one another, all people in this dark world shall know we are His disciples (John 13:35). We shall shine as the stars in the darkness of this world. We are to love even our enemies who hate us. In doing so, there is rule over those who are of the night in the darkness of their minds as we let God avenge us (Romans 12:19) .

    Mark 12:29-31 KJV

    (29) And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

    (30) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

    (31) And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    He made the stars also.as we shall shine as lights/luminaries in the darkness of this world in the doing of His 2 greatest commandments. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.

    Philippians 2:14-16 KJV

    (14) Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

    (15) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

    Holding forth the Word/Saying of Life: that God is Light.

    (16) Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

    to be continued...
  • Johnson emile on Ecclesiasticus 23:18
    that still doesn't answer my question I ask is Mary's son in the flesh who is call Jesus is he God
  • Chris - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 23:18
    Johnson, that is correct, Jesus was born of the virgin Mary for the purpose of God's entrance into Earth's realm. Mary 'knew' no man, she was a virgin, especially chosen of God (Luke 1:26-32) to bring forth God's Word (John 1:1-14) into the World for the sole purpose to preach about God's Kingdom & to lay down His Life as a Sacrifice for all of us.

    So we say that God is a Triune God, because God reveals Himself to us in His three Personages (NOT three gods): God the Father, God the Word (His Son, Jesus Christ) & God the Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:7: "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one"). This is a difficult concept to understand, but it's like saying that you are composed of three parts: your body, soul & spirit; if one part is taken away, then you are incomplete & not the true complete YOU. The Sun has three parts: its substance/matter, heat & light; it wouldn't be the sun we know, if a part of it was removed. In like manner, God is perfectly God only in His three-fold personage & nothing else.

    Just as Jesus came to the Earth to die for our sins & in our stead, so that all who repent & believe in Him will not go to Hell, so God's Spirit is also here now in every believer to give him/her a new spiritual birth, to empower them to live this new life, & to share this wonderful news to others so that they too can be saved & become a part of God's family.

    So, Yes, Mary was especially chosen by God to bear Jesus, Whom the Prophet Isaiah spoke of in Isaiah 7:14: "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel". Jesus came in fulfilment of that prophecy & also read Isaiah chapter 53 and the Messianic Psalms 22, both showing His agony at the Cross.

    I hope you can see that Jesus wasn't just a Prophet or just a good Man - He IS God's Son, being taken into Heaven after His Crucifixion & burial, showing our acceptance by God.

  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 5
    Edna, Matthew 5:20 speaks of this. The Scribes & Pharisees mentioned here were a part of the Jewish leadership who were well studied in the Law & the Prophets & generally laid down the law for the people & enforced them. The Pharisees in particular, were so meticulous in their knowledge (i.e. 'crossing every T & dotting every I'), that they also imposed their own set of rules upon the people & made the law more burdensome to them. Jesus implied this when He said: "Take MY yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For MY yoke is easy, and MY burden is light." (Matthew 11:29,30); meaning, that Jesus' commandments (from God) were not like the heavy burden & yoke imposed by the Pharisees, to which the people found unbearable.

    So, these religious leaders prided themselves in their knowledge of the Law & their authority to impose it, as well as their extra laws upon the people. They also loved to be seen by others & receive the praises of the people, etc. (you can read all about it in Matthew 23). Jesus, in Matthew 5:20, references these ungodly traits & acts by these leaders by telling his disciples, 'don't behave like those Jewish leaders who think themselves as the epitomy of righteousness, but rather you must behave in the manner prescribed by God'.

    The apostle Paul also speaks of this in Romans 10:1-5, saying that Israel (because of these leaders) 'have a zeal of God but not according to knowledge; being ignorant of God's righteousness & going about to establish their own righteousness'. And what was the difference between them? They were sticklers for the law & added their own laws as well. God's righteousness is based purely on Faith & that through Jesus Christ, whom the leaders rejected (Romans 10:8-12). No one coming in the strength of the Law can be saved: only those coming in faith. See Hebrews 11 for a great list of Faith Heroes, who were commended for their faith in action (righteousness) that went far beyond the Law.
  • Mild Bill on Psalms 21
    When we see the King on the cross, where is his strength?Despite pain and anguish

    he has a desire in his heart.His days were never numbered and he was purposed to

    accomplish God's will.A gladness of unsurpassed measure was his because he

    knew the facial expression,countenance, of the Lord.Yet, it was mercy of the Father

    that sustained him in his explicit trust in the Father.A trust that grows within believers,

    rooted in the trust of our Lord Jesus,the author and finisher of our faith.Hebrews12:2
