  • John Alfred Kay jr on Luke 2:7
    I have read the Bible, in many translations and in my poor understanding and translation of Greek. Over the years I have heard and read about St Luke's stating that His mother "laid Him in a manger ..." ( a feeding trough). Many people have spoken , written, about this event and why St. Luke put the story of Jesus' birth in his narrative. My guess is that all explanations are valid.

    My thought is that the act of placing Jesus in a "MANGER" is that St. Luke is prefiguring ( if that is the proper word to use) the Last Supper and what we do as Christians to be fed and to be as one with our Lord and Saviour " Jesus Christ ".

    From the moment oh Jesus' birth God is calling us to be one with Him and in so doing so we will be empowered to do what we are called to do, as individuals as part of the body of Christ.

  • Michael Smith on Matthew 24:6
    I am seeing that the Fig tree is in the season. The many signs we now see are clear. I caution people about thinking everything is already figured out about end times. Many ministries interpret everything and assign times, notions, people, and circumstances. I believe prophecy here is to keep people thinking and studying to find out for themselves. The scrolls will happen to open when we truly find answers. I believe most evangelicals should question the pre-trib rapture. There are many new interpretations that lean to mid-trib. This means we just don't get to think we are outta here. We may go through war and be killed and persecution and martyrdom before mid-trib. As I understand the first half of the trib may result in half the earth's people dying.
  • Michael Smith on Matthew 24:6
    I love the story of Job. I relate to him a lot. I just want to ask why God let Satan kill Job's offspring? I know Jesus loves me but why didn't God forbid the devil to kill them? Is not God's love equally for all people? Did they deserve the punishment? I didn't see anything to indicate that? Job was an example of someone who is upright and faithful. I have always felt that God is Love and still believe so. I feel guilty for even asking the question. Should I be feeling this way?
  • Rick Mentzer - in Reply on Matthew 24:6
    The book of job is the great example of The true Gods deliverance and the absolute destructive nature nature of the of the devil or satan also in reading Job in verse 3;25 he states the thing he was afraid of is what happened to him. What is remarkable he never cursed or slandered God even when His so called friends did talk negative about God JJob stayed faithful and committed and remember satan was told he couldn,t take jobs life. So God was still as always in charge.
  • Bill on Micah 1
    Is there a Lucifer lord?
  • Joyce - in Reply on Micah 1
    There is only one Lord and his name is Emanuel. (of God). Lord means one who has dominion over you and is your saviour and master. We should never give Satan any such title for he is destined to eternal damnation.

  • Looking for verses regarding whether animal having a soul to explain to my grandchild
  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 2
    Hello, animals don't have souls. They don't make moral decisions about right and wrong, they don't sin, and Jesus didn't die to save ticks, flies, amoebas, corona virus, and rattlesnakes. We are more valuable than animals: Matthew 6:26. We were made in God's image: Genesis 1:27. Scorpions and hammerhead sharks weren't made in God's image. Those who claim otherwise are not reading the Bible first to understand what it means. Instead they are believing what they WANT to believe then cherrypicking certain verses, distorting and twisting them to try to match as close to what they want to believe as they can.
  • Rick Mentzer - in Reply on Philippians 2
    Yes animals have a soul the soul is breath life Genesis 2:7 thats what God gave man also animals what he didnt give animals is spirit when either man or beast takes his last breath he dies.

  • Fred Scanlan on Hebrews 3
    In the last days, many shall be deceived, the enemy will be those of your own household! That would be anyone, even ones wife! It is unfortunate that in your desire to enrich yourself, you have destroyed anything that is good! Sin has a way , not unlike the tranquilizer. The booze, it infects your soul! What would it profit if a man gain the whole world and loose His soul! How difficult it is to forgive! Only the Christ, Only the Christ!
  • John Mulwanda on Hebrews 13:2
    what type of judgements are there?
  • Patty Yozi on Psalms 1
    I wake up in the middle of the night, wondering if you will come this day that is not promised. His word says to be ready. Many trials l have been through in my lifetime. Many hard knocks. No one around to explain why. So alone l would write to my God what l felt. Never knowing l was chosen to help others in these days. Now l fight with great Strength for helping others. When God is near, the world does not matter anymore. Only His Light and His Love that came upon me years ago, from an after death experience. Saw everything. The Book of Life is real. Get ready to meet your Maker. All knees will bow when the sky opens. The Power He carries will shake all of His creations on this Earth-- and move mountains. The Evilness of this World will fight them one last time. But the Victory will go to the Son of God for His Father. The Love for His people will be shown that Powerful day. Be ready!!!

    The time is near ...for the evilness of the flesh is getting stronger. God's people have to prepare to fight. The world is not what it seems anymore. Never was. Only the Light of God in people will get them through. Pray as never before. Read His word. Be prepared to help others less fortunate. Be Ready...in my dreams l saw much!!! Prepare to choose the side you will be on. NOW!!!!! Do not wait...Be prepared!!!

    Now you know the words of Solomon. How much he loved him, who made all things! His words come only from heaven!
  • Eric on Genesis 50
    Day 16 of Bible in a year! I did it! I can now say I've read the entire book of Genesis. I believe it was in the commentary that states Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel) and Joseph are the prophets that are spoken of in revelations? Very interesting the lives of the beginning to see where we came from. It goes to show not much has changed. Some of us are good and others are bad hearted. Joseph's perspective that good came out of his brothers evil deed for the better. I/we need to have this perspective to prevail and make the world a better place.
  • Dale Grady on Psalms 83:18

    Knowing His purpose will be done

    He who causes to become

    But something went wrong...a long time ago

    And the ANSWER ....His servants know

    BECAUSE, He says so!

  • Lesley Mitchell on John 14
    When Jesus Christ explains to Phillip that if he has seen him then he has seen the Father. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. Meaning that God was in Christ. But God is not flesh and blood. God is a spirit, the Holy Ghost in which is the Comforter. Meaning that the Father, Word, and Holy Ghost are one God. Not a trinity, but there is no one beside God. As the right hand of God is God's Glory and Power. God is God alone. God is Alpha and Omega; Is Was Is. God is Almighty and is everywhere.

  • Chuck on Matthew 8
    In chapter eight, God has revealed to me so much about myself. This summer as I was working in the yard, something seemed to come up through the bottom of my shoes clear up and out the top of my head and caused me to do an act and as I was in route to do this, I said to myself, I really don't care who sees me. This was Not me but happened through me and was so quick I just seemed to have no control. This chapter has showed me number one it was the devil and I was at such a weak point and moment in my life that the devil can move and is waiting to move on you so quickly it does pay to study and know Gods word. The next thing I knew was someone from church had seen me and as said in the comment section, "God often,for wise and holy ends,permits the efforts of satin's rage. Thus the devil hurries people to sin;hurries them to what they have resolved against,which they know will be shame and grief to them: miserable is the condition of those who are led captive by him at his will." This has and still has lead sickness to me emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I'm a Christian but I've never resolved to taking the time to set aside for God and his time to come first always an excuse so busy. That is the devil and his angels wanting you to believe that. He is a liar and always will be. This chapter and what God revealed to me was I should, and with God,s devine help, I will put God and his will for me first and in doing so, God will see I have the time effectively for my other responsibilities. Just as he does in our finances when we tithe and give God his first. I'm so thankful for this lesson and what it has meant to me. Talk about needing a road map, I have when it comes to getting things in correct order for the sake of my Lord Jesus Christ. Who else can we want or need to please other than our Savior. If you are his child, what an honor to say so and tell others about. I prayed so hard last evening for forgiveness to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I hurt.
