  • Evanrod Nocalan on Galatians 5
    why those who profess the faith alone concept to be saved have built their own churches with differing names where they conduct their so called fellowship. All of these are deeds or actions of faith, right? And they are teaching, just accept Christ and your faith alone can save you. So if a person does that - having faith alone in Christ - no need for him to join any denominations, right? In this connection, why God said that there are people who serve Him with their lips only but their hearts are not but are looking after their own benefits?

    Please help me to answer this question thank you. God bless

    He was God manifested in the flesh,

    Emmanuel God With Us.

    God put himself in that body, Jesus is the only God you will ever see God is a spirit he is eternal you cannot see him except in the body of Christ

    You must be baptized, Jesus said he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved

    Read acts chapter 2, acts chapter 8, acts chapter 10, acts chapter 19, they were all baptized in the name of Jesus.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Exodus 22:18
    Unlike the nation Israel under God's rule, we have no such authority or command from God to condemn witches to death.

    If murder has been committed or if someone is culpable in the death of another, then the proper authorities should be involved.

    Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. (2 Timothy 2:8-10)

    The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. (Psalms 27:1-3)

    For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Psalms 33
    The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

    And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

    They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

    His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. (Matthew 19:3-11)
  • Leslie A Ford on Amos 3:3
    Have you all never experienced the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ? You sound so full of hurt and betrayal. I know it all too well. The loneliness, the years of loneliness. But, never give up on love. Faith, hope, and love in the Spirit of God not young
  • Marva - in Reply on Ezekiel 18:26

  • Qanaawath - in Reply on Genesis 2
    2cd Edras 6;54 And after these, Adam also whom thou madest lord of all thy creatures, of him come wee all, and the people also whom thou hast chosen.

    55All this haue I spoken before thee, O Lord, because thou madest the world for our sakes.

    56As for the other people which also come of Adam, thou hast said that they are nothing, but be like vnto spittle, and hast likened the abundance of them vnto a drop that falleth from a vessell.

    Can someone break this down?
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 2
    Even IF there was a dual/parallel creation by God, Genesis chapter 6 declares that God would "destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them". Genesis 6:7. "But Noah found grace in the Eyes of the LORD".

    So IF all the "creations" of God were destroyed by the flood, bar the "eight souls" (1 Peter 3:20), & I'm a Gentile (a part of the first creation & not of Adam's line) & therefore not in the line of Adam - Noah - Abraham - David - Jesus, then in fact, I don't exist.

    And IF God's Judgement by the flood was restricted only to Adam's progeny because of their "wickedness being great", then why overlook those "Gentiles" who would also have been wicked because of their sin & not include them in the worldwide destruction - or maybe they were sinless & needed no judgement as we're not told that sin was in them nor passed onto them? Then this might give some added weight to our 'sinless perfection' brethren's argument, sans their need of Christ. The mind starts to boggle indeed. Or, maybe there's a link that I've missed.
  • Spike4187 - in Reply on 2 John 1:1
    I thank you for your response! It is amazing when you read Jude, John III and John II. They warn about deception and people coming into the church and saying a whole lot of nothing. And denying the complete fullness of Christ. You see that today as well. Preachers on TV saying a whole lot of nothing. I think the people are more ignorant leaving the show pertaining to Biblical matters then when they did before they sat down to watch it. I recently was alerted by a friend to view a YOUTUBE clip where Kenneth Copeland said God was the biggest failure in the Bible. I cannot believe for a second anyone would attend his church. How can you say such a thing? You should check it out. No wonder Christianity is on the decline in America. Have a good day.

  • Bendito Palavra on Hebrews 1
    How is it that God himself calls his Son, Jesus Christ, "God" (theos in the Greek)?
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 12
    Hello, just to be clear that verse says "BUT" blasphemy of the holy spirit won't be forgiven.

    It sounds like you've taken the right steps and I'd be careful in trusting your feelings. Feelings can be indicators, but they can also stem from misinterpreted information, false assumptions, or even lies. Example: someone was angry that someone harmed his daughter and took vengeance out on someone, because of his feelings. He deeply hated that person and rationalized it as doing 'God's work' by ending his life. Unfortunately, he had the wrong person, so he killed an innocent man. Someone who kills is a murderer. He followed his feelings.

    A woman had an abortion then had deep regret. She couldn't forgive herself because her deep feelings of guilt. She somehow believe Jesus died on the cross for everyone else in the world, except for her. She somehow thought that not forgiving herself and punishing herself would be some kind of penance for what she did, but instead it only led to her neglecting herself, her kids, her family, her friends, and God. Feelings. We need to love ourselves in order to love others. It's the 2nd greatest commandment in the Bible! If we don't forgive ourselves how can we love others. We have a responsibility to do our part.

    God is love. If God can even forgive murderers in the Bible and choose them for his most important work like Paul, Moses, David, etc, then God can forgive anybody of anything and has (except blasphemy of holy spirit), even if part of you doesn't feel worthy and doesn't totally believe it. Deeply ask yourself why you don't believe you should forgive yourself. Why isn't Jesus dying on the cross for you to pay for your sin enough for you? Get to the root of your beliefs by asking repeated specific questions and how you came to believe what you believe. If we shine a bright spotlight on ourselves sometimes we expose irrational beliefs or something untrue.

    Hope part of this is helpful. God bless you...
  • Sunday chansa on 1 John 4:18
    How can I become a man of GOD
  • Butch on Matthew 1
    In Acts chapter 2 the day the New Testament Church began, on the day of Pentecost, they were baptized in the name of Jesus, then in act chapter 8 the Samaritans were baptized in the name of Jesus, then in Acts chapter 10 the Gentiles were baptized in the name of Jesus, then in act chapter 19 Paul said to the Ephesians that were the followers of John the Baptist ask them if they received the Holy Ghost since they believed and they end up receiving the Holy Ghost with speaking in tongues just like and Acts chapter 2 and Acts chapter 10 and they were re baptized in the name of Jesus, my question is why do most of the churches when they baptize you they use the titles Father Son and Holy Ghost and not the name Jesus, Father Son and Holy Ghost are not names, Hebrews 1 and 4 said that he inherited his name he inherits his name from his father which was Kept Secret in the Old Testament but revealed in the New Testament?
  • 1 searching on Matthew 12
    Matthew chap 12 vs 31-32 say all manner of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven, over a year ago I came back to Jesus and the church after having been away for a very long time, I have repented and turn away from the life I was living. Now I confessed my sins and I know Jesus died on the cross for all my sins. But it is different this time I don't feel forgiven like the last time. I guess what i want to know am I still saved even though i feel Jesus won't forgive me this time because I don't think he should forgive me. I know it how it sounds, but this is a very scary place to be because I do believe and always did. But all I ever hear from pastors and people are how once they came to Jesus they never looked back. What about all the people like me who knew wrong and did it anyway. then something makes us come back to our senses and we return to God. Are we still forgiven if we don't forgive ourselves?

  • All Life is Precious with God He is LOVE - in Reply on Ezekiel 18:26
    iF all the money $$$$$ that goes to planned parenthood; was given to see that a baby was adopted by a family that would give that child everything and 2 parents to adore it: we wouldn't have these debates and riots for the right to destroy the "product" of conception.

    God knows when the conception occurs. He sees the child. The child already has a soul.

    The soul of that child immediately goes to heaven to live there eternally. That is scripture.

    All souls belong to God.

    Because our society says abortion is an option: does not make it right. You know in your heart that it's not right? If you are sorry for being misled, then repent and be born again with the receiving of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

    Being a Christian is much more than sitting in a pew every Sunday, battling sleepiness.

    The only person who can take away your sins is Jesus Christ. We don't deserve; and are not entitled to painless Christianity. We can eliminate a ton of pain just by reading the Bible for 1 hour each day. Start in Isaiah.

    Hurry. Jesus can return at any moment.

    I lost a very much wanted child. There's got to be a million people that have given up hope of being a parents. It makes no sense to me why babies are scraped out.

    I babysat my Grandson daily for 3 years; along with my mother who had dementia. He was brand new and at the same I sorrowed for my amazing mother and saw her struggle with things so hard. See? I participated in 2 lives that me and God loved on, every day! What a privilege.

    When we are right with God, life can be beautiful. It builds incredible strength into our faith.

  • Chris - in Reply on Job 11
    In Job 1:6-12, God had limited Satan's thrusts against Job only to his livestock, servants & family. Job's life was to be untouched, but sadly, all his possessions & family were wiped out by outside forces instigated by Satan.

    In Job 2:1-8, God had allowed Satan to touch Job's life (with boils) but not to take his life away.

    Job according to Job 1:8 was considered a righteous man by God: "And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?" Satan, wanting to make God out to be a liar, wanted to test Job's mettle & show that Job would ultimately reject God if he & his family were sorely affected. God had great confidence in His servant.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Ezekiel 18:26
    Unto the children of Israel the LORD commanded:

    Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD. (Leviticus 18:4-5)

    By Ezekiel's time, Israel and Judah had strayed so far from the covenant in flagrant disobedience that the LORD judged the nation, delivering them up to destruction and captivity. Ezekiel 18:26 is part of this judgement.

    For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. (Galatians 3:10-12)

    In Jesus Christ, though free from condemnation, we are subject to Christ and are accountable to him:

    For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. (2 Corinthians 5:10)

    Consequences of sin can be far reaching and ruinous to ourselves and those near and dear to us. Our prime example is David, who to cover his adultery had Uriah killed, then suffered the loss of fellowship with God, lost four children, and endured a bloody insurrection among other consequences. (beginning 2 Samuel 11)

    For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. (Hebrews 12:6-8)

    Wesley's Notes for 2 Peter 3:10

    3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief - Suddenly, unexpectedly. In which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise - Surprisingly expressed by the very sound of the original word. The elements shall melt with fervent heat - The elements seem to mean, the sun, moon, and stars; not the four, commonly so called; for air and water cannot melt, and the earth is mentioned immediately after. The earth and all the works - Whether of nature or art. That are therein shall be burned up - And has not God already abundantly provided for this? 1. By the stores of subterranean fire which are so frequently bursting out at Aetna, Vesuvius, Hecla, and many other burning mountains. 2. By the ethereal (vulgarly called electrical) fire, diffused through the whole globe; which, if the secret chain that now binds it up were loosed, would immediately dissolve the whole frame of nature. 3. By comets, one of which, if it touch the earth in its course toward the sun, must needs strike it into that abyss of fire; if in its return from the sun, when it is heated, as a great man computes, two thousand times hotter than a red - hot cannonball, it must destroy all vegetables and animals long before their contact, and soon after burn it up.

    People's Bible Notes for 2 Peter 3:10

    2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come. This expression usually, but not always, refers to the second advent. Such is the meaning here. As a thief in the night. When people are not expecting it. Compare 1Th 5:2 Matthew 24:43. In which the heavens shall pass away. See Lu 21:33. The elements shall melt. The material of which they are composed. The earth also and the works that are therein, shall be burnt up. The earth and all man's creations. That the world shall come to an end seems to be written in its very constitution. A slight change in the constitution of the atmosphere, or the decomposition of its water would wrap it in flame.
  • Anna on Isaiah 41:10
    "The enemy is "like" a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour." Notice the Word of God says "like"; he has no teeth to devour God's children, but he does a good job keeping us in fear. The Word tells us "fear not!" Why? Because no darkness on the face of this whole earth can overcome a child of God! Why? Because God is with us! When everything looks like it will fall apart, hold on! When everyone seems to be against you, hold on! When those who should know you best are believing concocted lies of those who choose to be used of the enemy, HOLD ON! When it seems that there will be some catastrophic end to whatever it is we are facing, anchor yourself and H...O...L...D O...N!!! As I speak to you, I speak these truths to myself! There is a mighty God, my Father, Our Father, who is holding me/us!!! Don't give up, give in, wallow in self - pity or cower in fear!!! Our Father is faithful and I am a living testimony that He is! He's coming soon! Be encouraged! God bless.

  • Spike4187 on 2 John 1:1
    What does he mean by "the Elder unto the elect lady? I know elect refers to Christians. Is John identifying himself as an "Elder" which he would be because you can't get any "Elder" than one of the original disciples. Or perhaps in that time, it was not proper to send a letter to a woman. Is it that? so he writes to an Elder to deliver it to her. Was John showing humility by identifying himself as an Elder but not as an original disciple of Christ? Is this simply a letter written to a Christian woman who has children and he heard how faithful she has been?

    Thanks

    Sincerely

    Spike
