    I never said angels were robots or were acting on animal instincts ,dont put words in my mouth . Perhaps you would benefit from a Concordance ,Strongs is the best i think ,then you would b able 2 find out all the different meanings of the word angel and there fore understand the context each instance it is used .

    I wish I would get the answers for this question but my email is messed up but I have wondered many times and I know he will but how can Jesus talk to that many people while judging them like billions. I know he will but how? Just think about how many people that is! Everything about Him is amazing! I think we maybe will be in some kind of spirit form? Talking about interesting! God bless each and every one of you!! Amen

    can you describe what the bible means when the disciples were filled with the Holy Ghost like cloven of fire set upon there shoulders? Acts 2:3
  • S Spencer - in Reply on James 1:8
    Hi Anne, give the scripture you are referring to. Thank you
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on James 1:8
    Anne, may the Spirit grace you with his understanding;

    Hebrews 11 is a testament about the old testament saints; but pay close attention to verses 39 and 40.

    Hebrews 11:39-40 And these all (old testament saints), having obtained a good report through (the work of the Spirit of Christ or the Holy Ghost which is) faith, received not the promise (eternal life, incorruption, immortality):

    (vs) 40 God (Spirit) having provided some better thing for us (children of the resurrection), that they (old testament saints) without us (children or the resurrection) should not be made perfect (complete in the Spirit of Christ or the Holy Ghost who only hath immortality 1 timothy 6:16).

    John 11:25 ..... I am the resurrection......

    Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us ( old testament saints, children or the resurrection and Christ) up together......

    Revelation 20:5 .... this is the first resurrection....

    Matthew 27:52-53 And the graves were opened; and many of the bodies of the (old testaments) saints which slept (died waiting for the promise) arose,

    (vs) 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city (new Jerusalem)......

    Revelation 7:1-4 (vs) 3 ......till we (Spirit) have sealed our servants (old testament) saints in their foreheads (given them the mind of Christ)......

    Revelation 14:4 .......these (old testament saints) were redeemed from among men, being the FIRST FRUITS unto God.....

    Revelation 1:3 .... for the time is at hand...

    May the Spirit grace you with his wisdom.
  • CHARLES COLE on Proverbs 31:7
    In Proverbs 31:7 to what does the word "poverty" refer to?
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Genesis 2
    Hello Raymond,

    I believe we are all going to have to give account of what we have done in our lives whether good or bad.

    As in 2 Corinthians 5:10

    One thing that some people denote is that there are two different "judgement" seats. As in English we cannot see this. One word they use for "judgement" is "krisis" transliterated from Greek. As it is used for "accusation, condemnation, damnation, judgment" in the Bible. The other word is "bema", also used for "judgement' in English, as the usage in the Bible is " judgment-seat set [foot] on throne." Some people say this is more for handing out rewards rather than condemning.

    As there are two verses I know of in the Bible that says a "believer" shall not come into "krisis" or condemnation. One is John 5:24. The other is Romans 8:1 that states there is no condemnation to them that are in Christ.

    As 2 Peter 3:7 states "krisis" judgement is kept for the ungodly people.

    Hope that helps some. God Bless.

    The answer is in the scripture, if you are intimate God wants you to be married.
  • Harold Olson on Revelation 21
    My son Nicholas is not married, but living with a woman and fornicating. Will he and her go to HELL
  • Raymond W Smith on Genesis 2
    Is it true that everyone will stand before God for judgment on judgment day? Please provide documentation from the KJV of the bible. There are some who do not believe this, however I do.
  • Adam - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Suzanne,

    Angels aren't robots or mere animals acting merely on pre-programmed instinct. They have freewill to choose. I believe this because the Bible says so. It clearly says satan was a cherub (angel) in heaven and he disobeyed and was cast out.

    Sources:

    Ezekiel 28:12-18

    Isaiah 14:12-14

    Matthew 25:41 says satan also has angels. So, if you believe no angels can sin, and since satan has angels, do you not believe satan is evil or commits sin?

    Does your belief that angels don't sin come from the Bible? If so, where in the Bible do you think it says angels don't think for themselves, don't have freewill, and that satan wasn't an angel? Now that you know these verses above exist in the Bible, does that influence your perspective?

  • Suzanne - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7:8
    Are u not able 2 live a platonic life with this man ? In that case u would not need 2 get married ,if the answer is no and u wish 2 b one flesh that is fine ,God sends us people 2 love and comfort us and that we may show others love and support and company , is this man also a Christian ? If no think very carefully b 4 u commit yourself 2 him ,i am in similar circumstances 2 u ,i believe that God gave me the right person and that God gave me 2 the right person ,we r not legally married ,i have prayed and asked God 2 recognise us as man and wife ,u must b sure of this mans feelings 4 u but if u r u r allowed 2 find happiness and comfort ,God does not want us 2 b miserable and lonely ,pray and wait patiently 4 the answer ,it will come .
  • Suzanne - in Reply on Matthew 24:6
    Jobs offspring were worshippers of God as was Job,as such they were not afraid of death ,we r allowed 2 b sad when some one dies as was Job but 2 a true believer such as Job and his family ,death means nothing except sadness that u can no longer see or hear or b with that person in this life .
  • Philip christian parks on Ephesians 6
    Finally, Apostle Paul warned Christians against their enemies of whom he described as "spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12). This expression describes, and includes, generally all the myriads of demonic personalities without the distinction of hierarchic ranks.

    This "wickedness" occurs in "high places". Since the word "places" is not in the Greek manuscripts, the King James Translators appropriately added it in italics for translative clarity.

    The word "high" is an adjective translated from the Greek compound adjective root "" (transliterated "epouranios"; pronounced "ep-oo-RAN-ee-os") which combines two words:

    1st, the Greek preposition "" (transliterated "epi"; pronounced "ep-EE"), meaning "over" or "upon";

    2nd, the Greek noun "" (transliterated "ouranos"; pronounced "oo-ran-OS") translated "heaven" in the New Testament.

    The Bible speaks of multiple heavens generally (e.g. Ephesians 4:10; "all heavens"), and three heavens specifically (e.g. 2Cor. 12:2):

    1st, The earth's atmosphere;

    2nd, Outer space occupied by the sun, moon, planets, and stars;

    3rd, The abode of JEHOVAH GOD.

    Here, this "high places" wherein this "spiritual wickedness" exists identifies first, the earth's atmosphere, and second, the earth's celestial heavens, both described by Paul as "the whole creation [which] groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Romans 8:22).

    The same Greek adjective, here translated "high places", also translates into the very positive expression, "heavenly places", four other times, and only in Ephesians (1:3 & 20; 2:6; 3:10).
  • Suzanne - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Angels always obey God ,u say they have free will but i am not convinced ,that would mean they r capable of sin ,i dont believe angels can sin ,they r not humans ,sin is very much a human perogative .
  • Philip christian parks on Ephesians 6
    Additionally besides the "principalities" and "powers", Apostle Paul warned Christians concerning the enemies which he described as "rulers of the darkness of this world" (Ephesians 6:12). The word "rulers" (note the plurality) translates from the Greek compound noun "" (transliterated "kosmokrator"; pronounced "kos-mo-KRAT-ore"), which literally means "world rulers". These rulers fall directly in the hierarchic chain of command under the authority of demonic principalities and powers.

    "Kosmokrator" combines two Greek words:

    1st, The Greek noun "" (transliterated "kosmos"; pronounced "KOS-mos") derives the English noun "cosmos," meaning the created universe in its entirety. "Cosmos" refers to the natural fallen world that presently exists under the curse. Here, "cosmos" describes:

    + The actual planet we call "earth" (Acts 17:24);

    + The arrangement, order, and nature of the physical world (1 John 5:4);

    + The planet's human race (Matthew 5:14, 16);

    + The world's affairs and the process of conducting them (John 8:23).

    2nd, The Greek verb "" (transliterated "krateo"; pronounced "krat-EH-o") means these demonic personalities rule over their delegated dominions around the world much like dictators rule by decree over their nations.

    Note that these "rulers" are especially sinister in nature for they rule "of the darkness" (Ephesians 6:12). Contextually, this darkness is spiritual in nature subjected to the rule of demonic personalities and describes:

    + spiritual ignorance and unbelief (e.g. Isaiah 9:2; Matthew 6:23; 1John 1:5-9; 2:8-11);

    + spiritual deception in false doctrines (e.g. Acts 26:18; 1Cor. 4:5-6; 1Thes. 5:4-5; 1Pet. 2:9);

    + evil lifestyles (e.g. John 3:19; 12:46; Romans 13:12; Ephesians 5:11);

    + the evil realm of Satan and demons (e.g. Lu. 22:53; Ephesians 6:12; 2Pet. 2:4; Jude v.6).

    Note, these "rulers" are Satanic in nature and either influence or possess their target humans "taken captive by him at hi (2 Timothy 2:26).
  • Br. Mark - in Reply on Ruth 3
    She was in Moab, Moabite
  • Philip Christian Parks on Ephesians 6
    The "principalities" of which Apostle Paul identified in Ephesians 6:2 translates from the Greek noun root "" (transliterated "arche"; pronounced "ar-KHAY"), and derives the English element "arch - " meaning "chief", or the first, principal, and highest position.

    The term "principalities" (plural) surely describe demonic archangels counterpart to "Michael the archangel" (Jude v.9). These demonic principalities hold the highest positions of power and authority immediately under Satan.

    Satan, identified as "the devil" (v.11), is the chief principality of this world, for CHRIST titled him "the prince {Greek noun "archon"} of this world" (John 12:31; 14:30; 16:11).

    Next Paul identified supernatural "powers" (Ephesians 6:12) as the enemies of GOD's people, and of whom we must resist. Here, the term "powers" translates from the Greek noun root "" (transliterated "exousia"; pronounced "ex-oo-SEE-ah"), meaning the demonic personalities described as "powers" wield delegated, unrestricted authoritative power. These powers fall directly in the hierarchic chain of command under the authority of demonic principalities.
  • Philip Christian Parks on Ephesians 6
    In Ephesians 6:12, the word "wrestle" describes a contest of physical strength whereby the winner throws his opponent off his feet and pins him to the mat.

    Contextually, this wrestling is spiritual rather than physical as verse twelve explains. It is a spiritual fight to the death! Paul often described the Christians' warfare exemplified by games of contest such as:

    + footraces-

    (1 Corinthians 9:24 & 26) "they which run in a race run all, I therefore so run"

    (Galatians 2:2) "lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain"

    (Galatians 5:7) "Ye did run well"

    (Php. 2:16) "I have not run in vain"

    + gymnastic strength and endurance-

    (Php. 3:14) "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD"

    + boxing-

    (1 Corinthians 9:26) "so fight I, not as one that beateth the air"

    + physical grappling-

    (2 Timothy 2:5) "if a man also strive for masteries"

    (2 Timothy 4:7) "I have fought a good fight"

    (Jude v.3) "earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints"
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Deuteronomy 18
    Thanks Chris, That is the simplest way to get to the source of this debate I've heard. I think we also with our finite minds we look at the word son and we associate it with what we know in relationship to that word whether biologically or adoption in view of rank, but in the spiritual we have limited knowledge and full understanding of words and quotes like manifested, "In the fathers bosom" "I the beginning was the word" now if you associate that with Alfa and Omega you know that he has no beginning. "Me and my father are one" "Thought it not robbery to be equal with God" " You seen me you've seen the father " many many other Quotes. and these are by the Author of the inspired scripture not the reader. How do you debate and quarrel with the reader. Its funny how both views have no problem accepting the Holyspirit as a devine being just by one word. "HE" but quarrel over the volume of the book expressing the diety of Chist. The answer to the question doesn't bring you salvation.
  • Alex on Genesis 3
    Hiya Steven and Chris no pun intented what i was impling is that Chris was saying that water baptism H20 makes our conscience clean which is not so we are made Clean our Conscience BY the WATER of the WORD which is Baptism of the H.G. That living water, baptism of the H.G the well of water that springs up unto everlasting life not h20 baptism . Remember Jesus Knew that all of his disciples had been washed, water baptised but he warns them IF I WASH THEE NOT YOU WILL HAVE NO PART WITH ME Which is baptism of the H.G. the water of the LIVING word ,you are made CLEAN BY THE WORD I HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU which is H.G BAPTISM. NOT WATER BAPTISM AS THEY ALL HAD BEEN WATER BAPTISED PREVIOUSLY. But Jesus tells his own disciples that had been water baptised IF i wash thee not you will have NOPART with me which speaks volumes of a greater baptism of the blood th BAPTISM OF THE H.G. THE CROSS. that baptism OF Promise. That makes the blood of no effect to say that water baptism can cleanse our conscience its like saying the Blood of the Cross was insufficent . Thats y the Lord was so upset with PETER SAYING THEY WERE NOT CLEAN YET THEY STILL NEEDED WATER BAPTISM IN Acts 10. And God showed peter in a trance that what i have made clean( God was baptising folks with the H.G. that resulted from the blood) The only cleanser, do not call common or unclean. K
  • Alex - in Reply on Deuteronomy 18
    Comments by Alex about Isaiah 11 Isaiah said there shall come a rod outta of the stem of Jesse which was David the Son and a branch shall grow out of his roots which was Solomon the Granson .And God wd not let David the son build that great temple He wd only let Solomon the Granson build the Temple And Solomon means Comforter as the H.G is the Comforter that is gona make our bodies his Temple as the scripture says our bodies are the temple of the H.G. Thus a greater then Solomon is here which is the H.G. the Comforter. And thus we see the Trinity as a Kingdom where the great king is the Granson the H.G THE COMFORTER A GREATER THEN Solomon that is gonna build a temple in Our hearts. Behold the Kingdom of God is with in you. k
  • Jack Gutknecht on Isaiah 45:5
    Why would a loving God "create darkness" and "disaster"? (Isaiah 45:7)

    7 I form the light and create darkness,

    I bring prosperity and create disaster;

    I, the Lord, do all these things. (NIV)
  • Alex on Ecclesiastes 1
    Comments by Alex about the trinity which is very simply even a 5 yr old can easily see it. When God told Moses that his name was Abraham Issac and Jacob and my memorial to ALL generations implies his kingdom is a trinity scenario a family aka as the family of God . And from this family came the nation of Israel the multiplication of Abrahams seed. The very fact that we have a Father and a Son begs the question of a Granson ( THE H.G. ) that comes out of Christ loins his seed etc. and an ISRAEL OF GOD the multiplIcation of CHRIST via his seed. When God swore by himself that Christ wd be multiplied as the STARS OF Heaven thats the Israel of God , the CHILDREN OF Promise . That will come outa of Christ precious seed the LIVING WORD . You ppl that gag at 3 are gonna be sick when ya see that Christ THE Absolute SON is gonna be multiplied as the Stars of heaven. Remember Jesus multiplies after the God kind not the human kind. when he said to whom the word came it made them Gods and that which is born of the spirit is spirit his offspring which is the H.G TH GRANSON th beginning of the ISRAEL OF GOD. Just as Jacob th granson was the beginning of the nation of Israel. Like i said a 5 yr old can see this father son and granson family type Kingdom. Humans are just the good ground where that good seed will be sown. k
