  • Carol spivey on Luke 10
    what does blaspheming the Holy Ghost mean ?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Luke 10
    Carol,

    Blasphemy is a word that is used to expresses rejection. This would be a person who refuses to gather with Christ in the whole process of the testimony of God's Spirit. If they reject God's Spirit, and His persuasion, and His conviction over their life, they cannot be forgiven for that. A person can be forgiven for everything else.

    But if a person rejects the testimony of God's Spirit that is convicting them of their need for Christ, and their need to be saved, if they reject that, there is no forgiveness.

    The sin problem has been dealt with. It's been paid for. Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world. So salvation has been paid for. Christ paid the penalty for sin by shedding His blood for the remission of sin. But if a person rejects that salvation, they are rejecting Christ. Salvation is a gift from God. He died for the sins of the whole world. If a person rejects that, they are rejecting the conviction of God's Spirit showing them their need for Christ. That is what it means to blaspheme the Holy Spirit.

    I hope this helps!

  • Jeanette whitley on Mark 5
    i love to read the bible. god is always good. what does redeem means
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Mark 5
    Jeanette, may the Spirit grace you with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, SOLD under sin.

    We were naturally born flesh and blood; but a body of flesh and blood cannot obtain the spiritual world (the likeness of Christ). Christ came in the likeness of us (sinful flesh) to REDEEM (exchange our body of flesh for his body of GLORY or a glorified body).

    Romans 8:6 To be carnally minded (unbelief) is DEATH; but to be spiritually minded (believing) is life (you never die you just change bodies; you are glorified with Christ, you are REDEEMED.

    John 17:21-22

    All this was made possible by HIS WORK ON THE CROSS AND HIS RESURRECTION. He was made like you so that you and him could die together and you and him could be resurrected together; now in THE LIKENESS OF CHRIST to live a life without sin (love God above all and your brothers and enemies as yourself)

    Romans 8:29
  • Wild bill on Revelation 3:2
    Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels..... .The question, once your name Is in the book of Life! or (does) my choices?/ and can my name be blotted... by them?/...then (we) need to think about this..., "once saved".., "always saved"... Jesus please will help Us..., when that (time) happens... I believe some will be called out by Jesus... and not who we think either...
  • Issac on James 1
    In the creation where man is created on day six and told to go forth and multiply. Animals were created also in the 6 days.

    Then on day seven, he is created again, stuck in a garden, given a name. Then woman is created from his rib. Then the animals are created again and put before Adam to name. The first creation of man and animal it says they were *Created*. Second creation of man and animal it says that God *Formed* them.

    The first creation was not stuck in a garden and was told to go forth a multiply.

    The second formed creation was not told to go forth and multiply and was stuck in a garden. In fact when they sinned, Eve was cursed with the pain of child bearing.

    I've been in the creation ministry for over 25 years and this idea of a dual creation has always been in the back of my mind. Never pushed it or preached it. But pondered it many times. Because a dual creation of man answers where Cain God his wife. And where the Gentiles came from.

    Created = God creating like He did everything else.

    Formed = a more personal creation that was to be eternal aka why they were stuck in the garden where God would visit, yet the first creation God did not visit aka walk with them because they were not eternal.

    The formed eternal creation sinned, and that stopped them from being eternal and they had to be removed from the garden where eternity existed until they sinned. Cast out where the first creation was aka outside the garden. And where Cain found his wife.

    Now I'm not saying this is right teaching, but creating the first man and the second differently (in wording), could that be God relaying a dual creation? For why else word it differently, put the 2 creations in different areas. Then leave the question of where did Cain get his wife? Now why a dual creation? I'm not sure, maybe something to do with eternity and non-eternity. But I do see this also going along with other parts of the Bible as well.
  • Chris - in Reply on James 1
    Hi Isaac, I agree with your first comment on God's sixth day of creation. However, from there when you wrote "Then on day seven, he (man) is created again", I don't see it that way. Genesis chapter 2 speaks of God resting from all His Work & He blessed & sanctified that seventh day of rest. So there was no further creating, as God had accomplished all His planned creative Work on the six days.

    Genesis 2:4 onwards then describes what God had done & how He made man (in Genesis 1:1-31). We're not told how He made man in chapter 1, only that He created man & woman. Then chapter 2 details how this was done, introducing this man Adam (made from dust) & Eve, who was 'take out of man', Adam. This is the way I understand these two chapters.

    I know there are other interpretations of this, similar to what you shared. However, I don't see any reference to a second creation of mankind. If this were so, we would have to ask, 'what happened to that other creation, as there is no mention of them?' And if there was another creation, did they also sin as Adam & Eve did, or were they sinless? Could there be some sinless tribe or nation also living among us? It would be strange that the Bible would be very quiet on this other creation. Does Jesus' sacrifice also include them - but then again, they would never know about it, & the apostles were never alerted to this 'fact' by the Lord? Or, maybe when Cain left for the land of Nod, his sinful nature (from his parents) also infected this other creation. The possibilities are endless, but without scriptural support. It's best to stick with what is revealed to us in the Word & just admit ignorance where what we seek is not revealed.
  • Victor on Deuteronomy 6
    How to understand Deuteronomy 6:10-11

    "And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;"

    While Deuteronomy 5:21 stating:

    "neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's."

    Is it controversial?
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6
    Victor, I don't believe there is anything contradictory between these passages. Deuteronomy 6:10,11 is God's Promise to His people that according to His Promise to their forefathers to give them the land of Canaan, He would also provide them with all that they need, even from the houses, lands, vineyards & wells that the previous inhabitants owned. And of course, the warning that all this provision shouldn't 'go to their heads' & they begin to saturate themselves with such blessings & comforts and forget the Lord Who brought them out of Egypt.

    So Israel wasn't coveting these things, rather God chose to give them all things that they needed because of His Promise. But if after all this, they began to look to the things of the heathen, i.e. false gods, intermarriage, heathen practices, etc., that would be coveting, as they lusted after more than was rightfully given by God or allowed by Him.
  • Carleton on Matthew 27:54
    "Is this that (which) you were looking for?" was the voice I heard from a distance in a cloud many years ago.

    Beside me a lamb with eyes like a human and similar to the eyes on the Egyptian stone that I saw in a photo several years later.

    written in love.
  • Inquiring times on Hebrews 9
    My question is are you saved in believing who Jesus is ? Or what Jesus did ?

    My take is if you don't believe that he is the Christ you will not believe in his words or work .

    Even the devils know who God is and tremble . Said James .

    There is more to just believing , although that's where it starts .

    Also many types of love and not all are good . I hear people saying like the Beatles all you need is love , but love can be for the wrong things . Love of God is totally different, you can not love the world and God too .
  • John - in Reply on Hebrews 9
    Acts 2:38 is the first Christian message ever preached and it needs to be obeyed.

    For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    Galatians 3:27-29 KJV

    What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

    Romans 6:1-5 KJV

    In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    Colossians 2:11-14 KJV

    Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

    Revelation 5 .12

    Saying with a loud voice , Worthy is the lamb that was slain to receive power , and riches , and wisdom , and strength, and glory , and blessing.

    Read the chapter and understand what heaven thinks about Jesus the lambs accomplishments.

    These are the highest rewards .
  • Tom on John 10
    This chapter of John Jesus explains so much truth , many of our answers can be found in this chapter . To know his voice is the most valuable thing to know , that's where it starts .

    Spending time in the word of God is so very very worth it !
