    Mishael,,.... I have read your posts frequently, and have been in agreement with you often, yet I'm troubled over your post which credits Benny Hinn and his teaching titled "war in the Heavenlies ". Do you adhere to Hinn's teachings? Are you in agreement with Benny Hinn. Please respond. May God bless you and keep you true to His Word.
  • Jack on Matthew 24
    Matt.24:1-35 refers to destrustion of Jerusalem, as "this generation shall not pass till these things have been done", then the nex5 verses states "But"

    , in contrast to all before there are no signs, but you just have to be ready.. the "these things" in verse 1-34 are signs of coming Jerusalem destruction, NOT end of world,

    If "end of world" as many teach, then how will fkeeing to mountains save you?

    Why hope it is not in the winter?

    If on housetop, dont go back into house for your possessions?

    Verse 36 is the KEY... "BUT...
  • Rob - in Reply on Romans 13:4
    The verse I'm looking for in the bible is in the Old Testament. I can't remember where I read it , have not found it yet but did come across other verses , like

    Hosea 11 .9 that confirms that verse and Jeremiah 32.27 , numbers 27.16

    Malachi 3.6 and Luke 34.39 from Jesus himself .

    The bottom line is God is Spirit and creator of all things visible and invisible. That's the father .

    Jesus is man and also born of The Spirit of God , and flesh of Mary , but he is not the father either , the father never had or will have flesh .

    Therefore Jesus is the Son of God the only begotten.

    All things Jesus has have been given him from God the father .

    No one gave anything to God the father . He is God alone .

    Amen
  • Jo Ann on Revelation 1
    Where can I find a description of the trials and tribulations? I know it is in Revelations, I just don't know the chapter.

    Thank you.
  • GOD39S FORM - in Reply on Romans 13:4
    To Rob: sorry I didn't see your question was about God's flesh. Here's some interesting, thought provoking scriptures.

    Exodus 33

    17 And the LORD said unto MOSES, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.

    18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

    19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

    20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, AND LIVE.

    21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

    22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

    23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my BACK PARTS, but my face shall not be seen.

    John 4:24

    GOD IS A SPIRIT: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

    Genesis 15 (ABRAHAM COVENANT)

    8 And he said, Lord GOD, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?

    9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.

    10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.

    12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.

    17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. (God)

    18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying:

  • Ron - in Reply on Genesis 12
    Ben Frost,

    It may seem that Abram lied about his wife but he did not. There was not a punishment given, as a matter of fact, Abram was given many animals and many servants. Sarai was Abrams half-sister so there was no lie;

    Genesis 20:12 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

    We must understand that at this time, at that point, the Law had not been given. The lifespan and human genetics were different than they are today. Having kids with close relatives was to repopulate the land. If we recall after the flood there were only eight people, so people married their cousins, half-sisters and many had more than one wife. All the earth at this time served strange gods and God took him out of this land

    Joshua 24:3 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.

    Back then if someone wanted the property of someone, especially a King or Pharaoh, they would merely wipe out the person and take it, because it was only the strong-will survive world, and women were considered property.

    Whether Abram did this out of fear of his life and willing to sacrifice his wife, or God instructed him and let him know it would turn out ok, it is not written. If we do the will of God, there is no guarantee we will not be harmed, for our hope is not in this world. Look at all the disciples before, many suffered greatly.

    God bless, Ron

  • Mishael - in Reply on Romans 13:4
    There's 128 verses with flesh, in the New Testament KJV

    1 Corinthians 15:39

    All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

    Revelation 19:18

    That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

    Romans 8:3

    For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

    Romans 8:12

    Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

    2 Corinthians

    For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

    Philippians 3:4

    Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

    Ephesians 2:11

    Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

    Mark 10:8

    And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

    2 Corinthians 5:16

    Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

    Ephesians 2:3

    Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind;
  • CREEDS - in Reply on 2 Timothy 2
    THE APOSTLES CREED

    I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

    And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit; Born of the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate; Was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into Hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit; The Holy Christian Church, the Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.

    THE NICENE CREED

    I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

    And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father, through Whom all things were made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man: Who for us, too, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, suffered, and was buried: the third day He rose according to the Scriptures, ascended into heaven, and is seated on the right hand of the Father: He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom shall have no end.

    And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son: Who together with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets.

    And I believe one holy, Christian, and apostolic Church.

    I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead and life of the age to come.

    Amen.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Nehemiah 8
    Jesus healed people on the Sabbath. One reason why the Pharisees wanted to have him arrested.

    Church happens when the doors are open and people attend. Society today, some people have to work on Saturday or Sunday. They need jobs to support family. What is wrong with attending Church at mid-week for those people?

    If we become intolerant and hard on these matters, we would be as guilty as the Pharisees.

    My opinion....
  • Ron - in Reply on Romans 13:4
    Johnny Ray,

    There is only one name we have repentance and remission of our sins, there is only one name we have salvation, there is only one name we have hope in eternal life, only in the name of Jesus we are sanctified, justified. Jesus is the resurrection and the life, Jesus is the true vine, Jesus is the light of the world, we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    The reason Matthew 28:19 is used for baptism, in my opinion, is for support of the Creeds that many Christian denominations hold for Christian unity (ecumenism).

    God bless, Ron

  • Ben frost on Genesis 12
    Did Abram get punished by god for what lying?
  • William on Genesis 22
    Sadly, even Matthew Henry misses the depth of Gen. 22:8. God did not say he would provide a lamb. He said He would provide HIMSELF a lamb. All glory and wisdom and honor to God and to those who have their eyes opened by the faith of Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Hi Admins, Please don't post this, and also can you remove my report of Simon, I don't want new visitors to see that. didn't mean to have that posted.

    Thanks so much
  • Bill Ben Yasrael - in Reply on Genesis 25
    I totally disagree with you, Jacob did not deceive Esau, Esau sold his birthright for some pottage (red stew), you people keep putting out this false information. Esau knew what he was doing and did not care, you must be of his lineage. Esau did not respect his birthright established by: "THE MOST HIGH". He wanted his cake and to eat it. To make matters worse he deceived his father Isaac, he could have told Isaac: "Father I sold my birthright to Jacob for some pottage. He was an arrogant disobedient son, look what he did married foreign women his father told him not to and: "He caused Isaac and Rebekah grief". You are incorrect Esau's behavior and that of his progeny give us Great cause to reflect on his evil deeds. All his seed does is go in to countries, kill the native people, make wars and spread hate and pollute this world, but his reign of Terror is over, now is the time of: "Jacob" says: "THE MOST HIGH".

    The position God gave to Deborah, is a prime example of God demonstrating to us that the woman is capable of leadership.
  • Robert D Taylor on Nehemiah 8
    In the Bible Saturday is the Sabbath. So why do we keep Sunday as a holy day? Read Exodus 20:8-11....

    If God wrote all the Ten Commandments withHis own finger, on tables of stone, how dare we change it....

    Could it be that the Roman Catholic Church changed it during the "Dark Ages" when it reined supreme?

    Something to think about, don't you agree....
  • S Spencer - in Reply on 2 Timothy 2
    Hi Christine,

    You stated "Christ died to change the world"

    The scripture doesn't say Christ came to "change" the world. He came so those who receive him might have life, and that's "EVERLASTING LIFE" and fellowship with the Father.

    Now he put his Spirit in us/ believers and the Holyspirit spirit changes us, ( providing his Spirit dwells in us ).

    Here's just a few of many scriptures:

    1 John 2:2. And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

    Matthew 20:28. Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

    1 Timothy 2:5-6. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

    Maybe there's others who would like to elaborate.

    God bless you.

    Hi Simon,

    I like to study and engage in eschatology as well, but I don't treat it like a hobby, I didn't want to deviate from Kates concern, I was addressing another issue altogether.

    Thanks.

    Good Day,

    Christ died to change world on man is still evil , did he died invain ?.
  • Simon - in Reply on Mark 4
    S. Spencer,

    It is historically and factually true, constitutionally protected speech.

    There is nothing intrinsically offensive in those words.
  • Simon - in Reply on James 1
    S. Spencer,

    Greetings, this site has some of the best NT scripture-smiths around. NT 27 strong.

    Salvation to me begins at the seventh trumpet twinkle, with the 144 first fruits standing on the hill with Messiah, the Christ. (Revelation 14:3-4) Please try to account for any souls other than these who are worthy of the first fruit resurrection, lest (Revelation 20:5)? From your study, what are 2 things Christians should know about salvation?

    I'm really surprised at how little of the OT, especially the prophets, are discussed here. They're the foundation, they offer tomorrows clews: Daniel 7:8 being Ezekiel 38:14 (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey) should interest you enough to see what they're talking about.

    One thing we can agree on is that we are living in the end-times of Matthew 24, yet no one talks about it.
  • Cheryl on Deuteronomy 4:7
    This whole chapter gives a a great definition of God's leadership as Moses saw and was guided to do, can we stand by these instructions today, due to the distractions causes us to go off cause mainly not all the way because the Holy Spirit convicts us that brings us back on course so the spirit man constantly battles, thank be to God who gives us the victory to fight the fight and win. Wisdom ,knowledge, and understanding brings us to God's light and truth of being a winner. Thank you Yeshua Amen.
  • MARK J EDENS on Hebrews 3
    This chapter truely shows the falsehood of beleiving in the "once saved always saved" doctrine that is taught by so many false religions. once your saved that's it!! no, notice the tiny word "if" in this chapter and throughout the entire bible. john calvin was very wrong!
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Mark 4
    Admins, This is very racist and offensive of Simon. And incorrect.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on James 1
    Hi Simon,

    Thanks, but no thanks,

    Not interested at this time in a long, long, long Escatology debate. I was commending Kate for her concern about her love ones.

    Trust me that Crack in the door will ease open again, But right now I'm talking about Soteriology!!

    Thanks.

    The following brief extract is from the Web: Spikenard comes from a flowering plant in the honeysuckle family & is found in the Himalayan ranges of China, Nepal & India. An amber-coloured aromatic essential oil is extracted from the plant's underground stems and over the centuries has been used as perfume, traditional medicine or in religious ceremonies from India to Europe.
