    @ Joyce B. Many are going through varied pains and suffering, both mental and physical, from sinful thoughts to losing faith and having to struggle to regain who we want to be in having a close or closer relationship with God. The great upheaval in the world right now is causing fear and confusion among so many. Sometimes, as humans it is easier to run away from reality into dark corners to seek solace, only to fail and fall.

    Sincere advice. Seek council of a trusted 'bible based' pastor. (they can talk on the phone or email, if you can not leave your house) Be honest about what you are dealing with, so they can pray with you and give firm council. Rid yourself of anything in your house that is causing this trouble/temptaion and do not turn it on again, buy it again, etc. Once it's gone, let it be gone. If your health is good, consider fasting for a few days and stay in prayer. Talk with God, so you are not alone when these thoughts come to trouble your heart. Walk, exercise, clean.

    God Bless and prayers are with you.

    John 16

    31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?

    32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

    33 These things I have spoken unto you, that IN ME ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    I was sent in here almost a year ago. God knows my body is older now, but my Faith is rock solid towards God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit who helps us to Persist in bringing salvation to those who are perishing. I want you to hold onto what you have, and trust in what you already know. Consider...that you were chosen too. As much as Peter, John and Paul. You have a testimony of Gods Love that no one else has. It has power that the Holy Spirit will use to convince sinners that they need that Power To Live also. Mine: I was revealing a horoscope to a backslid Methodist; when the Lord sorta rolled back her face; and I was then looking into His Face. She left and I was in a "state", I cannot define really. Arrested on a "Damascus Road". He is absolutely ALIVE

    After 36 years, here I am. I believe He has picked you too. He lets us see the miseries of human life to spur us forward to show them their need for a Risen Savior. He's not out of reach. He's as close as your next breath. If you are stuffed full of scripture and stories (parables), He will use those as you are willing to give them to Jesus. He's numbered our days and recorded them in a book. We're like an army of Noah's that are loading the Ark, which is Jesus Christ.

    In addition to building the Ark, Noah preached salvation to the unbelievers. Get in the Ark. Be saved. Not everyone will pray with you for salvation. Don't internalize.

    2 Timothy 3:13 evil will wax WORSE and WORSE. Read all of 2 Timothy chapter 3 & 4:1-4.

  • Sierra on Genesis 31
    I am seeing different verses about divorce. My former husband had multiple partners while we were married and continued to be unfaithful and he was hostile after marriage torwads me and the children. So I left the home but he divorced me first. I need to know because he divorced me and my situation I know Jesus has forgiven me but I do have someone I love dearly that is Christian like me and he was divorced with his wife as well. Does this make us adulters still in the lord's eyes in the day of judgment?

    And you are right there is no little sin or big sin. The bible say in Romans 6 : 23. "That the wages of sin is death and the gift of God is eternal life". So how ever you wage it if you sin it is sin their is no sugar coating it, or to say it is a white lie it is still sin and sin can lead to death...
  • Joyce Butler on Romans 3:22
    I have been having very intrusive sinful thoughts. I have prayed and prayed. Sometimes I wonder where is GOD for me! I don't even have assurance of salvation or heaven anymore. Can someone pray for me or help me to understand?

  • Carleton - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I have heard a thought that at least warms my heart when thinking about the time period after death and before the Marriage Supper.

    Some Christian cultures as folks are coming to a wedding have an meal or gathering perhaps the evening before. Because of long distance traveling the hour of the gathering is somewhat flexible to allow as many guest as possible to arrive. The guest arrive and mingle together in the fellowship of the Saints and likely speak of in a calm happiness the events that are so soon to take place while waiting on more guests to arrive.
  • Andy G van den Berg on 1 John 3:15
    1 John 3:9

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    By attending a man-made institution (Acts 7:48; 17:24) a few hours a week does not mean that a person can make a claim that they are followers of Christ and 'Born Again'. That is falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; Revelation 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9), and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).
  • Carleton - in Reply on Matthew 25:40
    Sounds good Sammy! Parents should by example from an early age teach their children how to pray, so that someday God through his Son will call them like Samuel was called. Regarding praying out loud in public, likely there are times and places that it is okay and not just a show, but praying on the inside is always okay. God knows and neighbors know who prays for show or for love to the Father. Regarding those not only in present positions of leader ship but in times past too, praying for leaders to know and follow God's will will bring quiet to the land. When there is quiet in the land , more children old and young can hear the still small voice of God when he speaks to a person anywhere in earth, no matter their position for their own good. Let Christians carry the Gospel message through example and not worldly powers. :)

  • Grace39s Reply Re After-Life Judgements - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Hello Ms White,

    I don't know exactly what happens after a person dies, but while I've examined some NDE stories, I believe what God inspired in the Bible. Yours is an intelligent question. You clearly see that the act of being sent to either Heaven or Hell is in itself a judgement. So true because it's sound logic

    The word "judgement" in Revelation 20 is a direct word-for-word translation of the ancient Greek word for judgement. It's unfortunate for this chapter because the old Greek meaning must've been different. The important key when translating is to translate the meaning - so word-for-word is not always meaningful between different languages of different cultures at different times. (The KJV isn't a literal translation, btw).The meaning of 'judgement' has been lost because no translator has ever been trained, tested &certified by an independent board, the way NAATI translators need to be before translating modern languages for the U.N. So, these so-called translators really didn't know what a dead ancient language sounds like and they can't be 100% sure of it's grammar

    But the true meaning can only be "sentence". Just like modern courts, Judgement Day is Sentencing Day to send body&soul to the 2nd death in that Lake

    Revelation 20:11-15 >The "dead" are souls, in resurrected bodies, who haven't heard of our God and/or did but didn't want to know. It likely isn't believers too because Jesus gave us eternal life (John 3:16) &we do have a renewed spirit because we are born again (1 Peter 1:23), so we can't be called "dead". But we could also be present on this Sentence Dlay just to see it because some religious leaders& scholars now teach a newer idea, since the 19th or 20th C, that there is a separate judgement for believers regarding the quality of our works - that's based simply on 1 or 2 verses about a "seat" of Christ (Romans 14:10). That debate isn't relevant here, but I'll just squeeze in that the text also refers to a judgement of everyone, dead or living (Romans 14:9)
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I know its popular to say that at funerals and to comfort those mourning, but I don't believe it's true. They might be in a 'better place' however, just not heaven, because all must wait for judgment. Also, it says the dead will rise to meet Jesus in the air. I'm sure it will be spiritual bodies, not physical ones that have rotted. It wouldn't make sense otherwise if people went straight to heaven to then go back to earth to an old body just to raise up and meet Jesus in the clouds, just for the ceremony of it. So, both scripture and logic refute that idea. Most people believe this because of Jesus telling the other guy on the cross that he would be in paradise. First, Jesus can pick whomever he wants to have special treatment- it doesn't automatically mean 100% of others will follow suit and ignore the other scripture. Secondly, paradise may not necessarily mean heaven. Paradise could be an intermediary place of rest or waiting. Just some thoughts. No one knows 100% until it happens. We just have scripture and logic.

    If not saved: a hindering, harassing, unclean spirit. Ephesians 6

    Go on YouTube and watch some spiritual warfare videos on how to recognize it;

    How to make the spirits leave.

    We don't want to see devils everywhere: we just need to bind them and cast them out. Unsaved people don't know they are wide open to be afflicted spiritually. Pray in your car privately. The realm of the spiritual is open to only the spiritual.
  • What to expect during the Rapture for Believers who are ready - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Briefly, if we have not been Caught Up in the clouds to meet Jesus yet:

    Our bodies or our ashes, remain in the ground.

    Our spirit and soul ascend to heaven to await "the Rapture", when our bodies will ascend into the clouds to be transformed into our eternal bodies that will never get sick or die. If our earthly bodies were not complete or marred in some way: our new bodies will be perfect; body , soul, spirit.

    All souls are Mine, says God in scripture.

    Once the dead in Christ are rejoined; then those alive on earth will ascend next To meet Jesus and everyone else in the clouds.

    Be watching for Jesus every day.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 12:42
    David was a man after Gods own heart. Even with his frailties, God loved Him. That's how I learned. A servant will attend to every request of His master. He will sit in the watchtower, with the watchman; in the night. He will sit in the dark patiently waiting on what the Lord will speak.

    I cannot describe the rewards of being that kind of servant.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 1
    John: 3:5-18. Being born again.

    The water baptism is an act of obedience. To Wash away our sins and rise into the new life.

    Upon being born again the Holy Spirit is given to minister to the new life in Christ.

    John 16:8-16. This indwelling is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus.

    There's much to learn about Him. 2 Corinthians 12-14 chapters

    Any time anyone needs help understanding scripture: find the scripture and ask the Holy Spirit to explain it.

    May your lives bloom as begin a lifelong relationship with the Son of God By the Study of His Written Word and His Living Spirit.
  • S.Lipton on Matthew 18:20
    Where two means Husband and Wife and three means child or children. So when a family gather for family prayer in the name of Jesus , He is there in the midst of them. In a christian life family prayer is very important like God Trinity which put the family together always. Iff Jesus comes in the midst of us, then Father and Holy spirit also be with us and also angels will join them surely. Our home will become a small Heaven.
  • Grace regarding 1 Peter 12 - in Reply on Colossians 2
    Hello Gar,

    I'm interested to know about which old documents you are referring. What reference or proof do you have that the word "elect" was not in the original Greek? I'm hoping this is true, but it could be too difficult for anyone to show this because of lost scrolls, fake documents accepted as authentic by some, and just too many centuries have passed

    Anyway, I've checked that the ancient Greek word eklektos was translated correctly as the adjective "elect" in the 1611 KJV. Others translated it as "chosen". Note that eklektos is an adjective, a descriptor, a word that is an attribute or characteristic. It is not a noun or a verb or even the past tense of the verbs to choose, to select & to elect as Calvinists have misinterpreted and misunderstood. Example sentence starting with an adj. : (Sam is) Amusing according to Kim's letters

    Eklektos must be translated as a characteristic or quality as it was intended to be descriptive. So, in English the adjectival meaning of 'Elect' is: worthy to be chosen, favourite, preferred, and or "selected for an office, but not yet inducted". Likewise, when "chosen" is used instead of 'elect' as an adjective, chosen means: preferred, to be selective from a number (of available). 'Preferred' would've been the better English translation to stop the arguments

    What's more, "foreknowledge" is "prognosis" in ancient Greek. So that sentence means 'We are preferred by God, according to His ability to see into the future, to be sanctified for obedience'. It's not the Calvinist 'The Chosen Ones according to His will'

    3 different bible versions have all used the same document for 1st Pete1:2

    21st Century KJV

    2 elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father through sanctification of the Spirit, unto...

    New Life Version

  • NEW 2020 on Revelation 6
    Did anyone mentioned the fulfillment of the symbolic horsemen prophecies?

    Briefly, Revelation 6:2 is a symbolic leader of Israel who had gotten a crown (the Palestine's Lands) and is set on conquering the Palestine people

    Revelation 6:4 is a symbolic Palestine leader who is going to get a huge support from the East to make War in Israel

    Revelation 6:5 is a symbolic American leader who is controlling all the world economy and is also protecting the interest of the jews and christens in Israel

    Revelation 6:8 is a symbolic christen leader in Israel who will be persecuted along with many christens.

    Who was the first with this interpretation?
