    You MUST be baptised, to receive salvation it is a requirement of God, that's why Christ was baptised by John the Baptist . Cheers.
  • Ronald - in Reply on Acts 1
    The Thief will be in Gods kingdom,God does not lie and keeps his promises. might have been like the Lost son in Luke 15,was previously baptised then lost his way and did wrong then asked Christ forgiveness . Cheers.
  • Chris on Amos 3
    Why do you feel that this Bethel Church is a pagan church Are you trying to connect the name, Bethel, with the idolatry that took place there (1 Kings 12:32) Please don't leave the Church you are now attending, if they properly teaching from the Word & Christ is the centre in everything they do.
  • Frances on Esther 4:11
    How explain to Catholics that communion is NOT eating n drinking Jesus' body and blood I have shown In 6:63 flesh profit nothing, my words are spirit
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 2
    Thank you, I learned it the same way. Adam was a living soul; a little lower than angels and so it is interesting and I wonder what he had to therefore do to become an angel. Also what would have happened to him, if he lost his soul; and i would think that he would have had to continue to be good or learn how to be good or what is good, and do it to become as perfect as angels; and of course if he lost it; then I think he would have to go where men go that have lost their souls; and I think that we can learn what Adam was learning from God, in the Bible as best as we can; and we have Jesus who took our sins for forgiveness; and I expect we will therefore make it; but the job may be in stayin
  • Mountain Pastor on John 21
    In verse 14 scripture states that this was the third time that Jesus showed himself to the disciples . Does the Bible say where he was at all of the rest of the time that he walked the Earth after his Resurection Did he do any miracles.
  • John S Gorzycki - in Reply on 1 Peter 2
    Chris, we here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, are not gathering together at our church building. We are meeting in small intimate groups at our homes. We also use Zoom and Duo to "see" each other in a greater number. Even these little things are good for us to keep encouraging and edifying each other with the word of God. Reminding each other that we are sinners saved by grace only. We realize that we can do nothing to save ourselves other than believe in the finished work of Jesus on the cross. John 3:14-21. Ephesians 2:8-9. John 5:24. Cheers!
  • Chris on Zechariah 9:13
    If you're referring to "pure religion", it is found in James 1:27.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 91
    That was a real encouragement & a blessing - a mighty verse from God's Word. Thank you.
  • Chris on Genesis 1:27
    I've read the KJV from childhood, so am tickled to read how someone could find Genesis 1:27 confusing. And I suppose it is, if you are not accustomed to the older style of English. What the verse is saying in modern English is: "So God created man in His Own Image, in God's Image man was created; both male & female were created by God". There is no indication of man & woman making a 'god of this world'. The god of this world is Satan who was banished from God's Presence because sin was found in him (Ezekiel 28:14,15: the king of Tyrus was a type). And this god of the world has full sway on the lives of those (the progeny of Adam & Eve) who disobey the God of Heaven.
  • Chris on Revelation 1
    Psalms 91 speaks of a destructive or pernicious disease that has far outreaching effects. There is no specific meaning of 'pestilence' in the original Greek, so it could also allow for disease destroying plant & animal life. Though here, it seems to apply to humans. The Bubonic Plague that affected Europe in the Middle Ages is a classic example of Pestilence that, I believe, killed over 30% of its population. The present Corona virus, could also be classified as such, because of its severity, range & resulting deaths. But whether this is a direct act of God against man, or even a prelude to further ravages to come upon us, remains debatable & no doubt, the main topic for some time yet.
  • Karen on Ezekiel 1
    What does the Bible talk about with the spirit realm Are Spirit guides real and can someone communicate with them What about mediums
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Peter 2
    I have to agree with Fred. While it is a demonstration of our love for the Lord & His Word & of faith that God will protect us during this time of infection, we have to ask, how does the world view our gathering together Is it one of a testimony of great faith or one of: 'these Christians are behaving recklessly & compromising the health of our community'. You are fortunate that the govt. still allows your Churches to have their doors open; we can't meet in Australia. But we do need to abide by the laws of the land, particularly now, but if those laws (& they are coming), prohibit Christians from meeting at all or in any way practising their faith & witness, then the Lord's Law overrules.
  • Chris on Revelation 1
    Kristin, I believe that when a child responds in simple love & faith to the Lord, that child is precious & kept secure in God's Love - she is saved. His Eyes were always on you in spite of your wandering. I have a similar testimony having left the Lord for many years, being distracted & drawn into the world. But the Spirit was working in me & brought me to a deep repentance, with much tears, of my wicked & pitiful state. I've never looked back & only desire to live for Him & serve Him. The fact that you're concerned about it now, demonstrates God's ongoing interest & love for you. Read the Scriptures daily, particularly the Gospels, & allow His Spirit to bring you to repentance & joy.
  • Marcus johnson on Luke 11
    teach me more
  • Chris - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    Thank you for your thoughts & prayers for Australia. Sadly, it takes crises like these for some to be alerted to the brevity of life & to eternity. Of those, a few will make earnest enquiry to heavenly things, but as the Scripture has warned that in the final days, others will have hearts grow even harder & will further blaspheme His Holy Name (Revelation 16:9). Yes indeed, evangelising must go on until the appointed number of souls are ushered in, & yet, how difficult it has become in the West, with hardened hearts & anti-Christian govts. against righteousness. More are responding to the Gospel in Asia & Africa PTL. My short ministry in S.Asia ('80s) demonstrated good reception to the Gospel.
  • Fredrickverdon7 on Isaiah 55:13
    What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable experience regarding unexpected feelings.
  • Mishael on James 5:15
    Kristin: read in 1 John 1:9, Psalms 51, Revelation 3:5

    Backsliding means you stood in one place. You're like a prodigal daughter. Come back and re-dedicate your life. Let your yes Be yes and your no's mean no. No waffling. It happens to a lot of people. Doesn't mean it's not important. I sit beside my bed on the floor and confess my wrongs. God hears and forgives. Let faith stand up: you stand forgiven. Like Jesus said to the woman about to be stoned: Go, and sin no more.

    Jesus is your Advocate (attorney). Maybe someday you can help someone else.

    If you want to spend eternity with Jesus.. get to know him by reading His Word..the Bible.
  • Evangelist Jordan - in Reply on John 10:30
    Jesus is god's only begotten son! we are children of god because jesus shed his precious blood to redeem us from the devil. jesus said, "i and my father are one." we can become one with the father, but jesus is already one with him! jesus is the great i am! when he said "i am he"...the roman soldiers went backward and fell to the ground! hallelujah! jesus is god the son!
  • Kristin Haney on Revelation 1
    If I were saved as a child but lost my way in my teen years am I still saved
  • Jack Aitorea on Psalms 70
    I did not have a Bible but I need one bible like this
  • Mishael - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    I prayed every day, last year, for the fires in Australia. Wow. That's when the Lord said it isn't global warming. All of creation is groaning for the return. It feels like birthpains: you just want it to end. You see all the faces who have yet to receive Jesus. We need global evangelizing.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Zechariah 9:13
    There is no formula. The reason all three of the Godhead are mentioned in Matthew 28:19 is because the Jews immersed three times. Today we do it once. But the Jews would dunk three times for baptism. They don't why, except Jesus said when you immerse three times, one's in the name of the Father, one's in the name of the Son, and one's in the name of the Holy Spirit. Guess who changed it Constantine! He said if Jesus told them to do it three times, we're only going to do it once just to be different. That's why Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is used in Matthew 28:19. But in Acts 2:38, they baptized in the name of Jesus. So now we have this big battle over baptisms, one is Jewish, and one is Gentile.
  • Marilyn Baisden on Revelation 1
    What does the verse 4 mean in Hebrews chapter 6
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Peter 1
    Fred, the points you share are very valid & indeed, with prayer and being in tune to what the Spirit is saying or guiding us in, is paramount. Yet, though the other difficulties presented by using the Interlinear are real, the student does have the opportunity to read the direct translations from the original language (providing faithful manuscripts are being used). It has helped me a lot & caused me to be less dogmatic & judgemental when a Scripture is simply not clear & when the Spirit hasn't given further Light. E.g. 1 Cor 15:29, in reference to 'baptism for the dead'. Unless the Spirit enlightens us or Paul arrives to give us his thoughts, we will always have dispute over this verse.
  • Chris - in Reply on Daniel 4:7
    Any time to witness & pray for all people should be a burden on a believer's heart. And particularly in times of national/world crises, this matter becomes all the more important. The basis of a prayer request is a child of God's cry to the Father imploring Him to act. We know God Hears if we ask in faith (Js 1:6), with a clean heart (Psalms 24:3-5), & according to God's Will (1 John 5: 14,15): all criteria need to be met. So the pastors who received a Word from God: is it to pray for believers' insulation from the virus or to remove the virus Should we ask also, "why has this come upon us at this time & what is God saying to us through this" May the Spirit help us to pray rightly (Romans 8:26).
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 50
    Christianity of course began with Jesus Christ and after His death, resurrection & ascension into Heaven. The word 'Christian' was at first a derogatory term given by unbelievers to this new 'religious' following: people of The Way (Acts 9:2, 24:14): in reference to the (new) way they lived. They were also called 'Christians', or Christ's ones/people, first in Antioch (Acts 11:26). We continue to be called Christians today as just another religious group. But unlike other 'religious' groups, it is only through faith & trust in Jesus Christ, we receive new life (a re-birth), whereas in other religions, they have to apply self effort or self pain to try to gain God's favour & paradise. Sad.
  • Steve on Luke 16:9
    The parable is about making decisions that leave you Places to work/live uninterrupted by poverty/homelessness/slavery. Accused of inefficiency, "wasting" in a competitive world (happens in business). He believed the accounting would not show him efficient. So while he still had authority he gave discounts, thus making obligatory friends in his business category. The master commended because he instantly went from cautionary tale, to glowing example of success, not even losing step, and because he thought through and made a stellar business decision, rather than reacting/fretting; when he could surely have easily preoccupied in the potential doom/gloom.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on 1 Peter 2
    God requires to use common sense .The last thing the church needs is to be accused of martyrdom.Or irresponsibility toward our fellow man. Is it not bad enough that the war we wage is against spiritual sin and death and our own salvation. Anyone gathering together during this time of uncertainty is clearly wrong. Satan is the great deceiver, even deceiving the very elect. Proverbs 3;6 In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy ways.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Amos 7
    L you shall find that usually in the king James that when you run across an unusual word that in the context it shall explain what it means esp when used for the first time. The Websters 1828 dictionary is also a useful resource online or in print. He was a believer and a linguistic word scholar who knew the Biblical languages of Hebrew and Greek.
