    is there a way that i can lean about what happen in each chapter and how can I memorise them
  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 72
    If someone's work is helping people (like a pastor, doctor, walmart greeter) and they work on the sabbath do you think that's not a violation, then?
  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 72
    Dear Dan,

    I'm replying to your comment on the sabbath. While I agree that it would seem strange to follow only 9 of the 10 commandments, Jesus did treat the commandment about the sabbath differently than the others and there is scripture evidence that suggests the sabbath is not equal to the other commandments.

    The reason is Jesus was accused of breaking the sabbath himself! If he were alive today and you saw Jesus heal someone or do some 'work', would you accuse and judge Him of it? That's what the Pharisees did and Jesus rebuked them. So, Jesus made a clear point that it's ok to do good work on the sabbath. Mark 2:27. There are also interesting verses like Colossians 2:16-17 and Romans 14:5. This shows the original reason Israelites needed to observe the Sabbath: Deuteronomy 5:15.

    So, did Jesus fulfill the sabbath or did he not?

    How can you tell the difference between a normal dream and one that a supernatural being put in your brain ?
  • Fred Scanlan on Mark 5
    Why does the holy spirit in Mark 5 not unlike all of Christs teaching, give us specific info. 3 things ,Christ ability too cast out demons,Christ ability to heal the long term sickness, and 3 to raise the dead, a 12 yr. old little girl! When i read the commentaries many equate mans sin in relation with all these. how we are all dead in tresspasses and sin, that because of sin we could very well become like the demoniac, we all are born with a long term sickness called sin. Mark records this exactly the way he recalls it. Is there something else we need to know? Are we suppose to look deeper into his words ? How are we to interpret scripture for all to understand. One thing is for sure that wherever Christ goes there is always something extraordinary that will happen. His life and what happens while here on earth is unbelievable. Perhaps these and all Christ miracles are stories that require faith, Faith is the real story,that he did all this and more. Faith will cast demons into hell. faith will heal us from the disease of sin, and truly faith will give us eternal life through him.

  • LEE MCNAMARA on 1 Maccabees 8:20
    when was the book of maccabees removed from the bible & why?
  • Brother dan on Psalms 72
    Not sure why so many people seem to be confused about the sabbath day, it is Saturday, the seventh day of the week, and is a day of rest, no work, and a day to reflect on God, pray, and give thanks. God gave this sabbath day to man, it is for us to rest and give thanks and regenerate our body and sprit and to draw closer to God.

    Lastly, it is the the 4th commandment that God gave to us. I value and honor all 10 of God's commandments. It is the law! Jesus while on earth honored the sabbath day. It is Gods Law....and Jesus said in Matthew 5:17

    "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil."

    Let's put it in another way, are you willing to keep 9 of the commandments, and ignore one - the Sabbath? I'm not.
  • Andy G van den Berg on Genesis 4
    A common question for Crossword Puzzles is: First Person? The answer 'Adam' is false and misleading, as Adam was the first 'Son of God', who lived approximately 4000 BC in the Garden of Eden, which was located south of modern Baghdad. History has proven that mankind in its current form has existed for more than 1.5 million years.

    For more information about the Mystery of God (Matthew 13:11,35; Mark 4:11; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:7; 4:1; Ephesians 1:9; 3:3,4,9; Colossians 1:26; 2:2; 4:3; Revelation 10:7), we invite you to Google our names or the article 'False Apostles and False Christs'. Our website shows in detail how and by whom mankind has been deceived and what people must do to be reunited with God (Revelation 12:9).

  • Stephanie on Genesis 4
    If God is the Alpha and Omega and the only God...then why does Genesis 1:26 say,"and God said, let (US) make man in (OUR) image, after (OUR) likeness... who is US if there is only one God?
  • Celine on Genesis 6:3
    Wondering how to reconcile the years of man: in Genesis 6 it's 120yrs but in Psalms 90 it's 70 yrs. And although some say it was pre-flood and post flood--do you have any other thoughts why?

    Thanks.
  • Richard on Genesis 1:14
    Hello my brothers and sisters. Hoping this is ok, here, as this is about prayer but not a prayer request. When prayer began to become part of my daily life. The our Father prayer was of coarse my foundation as it is a good, simple, prayer. As time went on it felt good to just add more details to the prayer to make it more personal, detailed, and unique. One thing that came to me was after looking up the definition of "us". As it states to be a plural form of "I" or "me" that, could, usually means more than one. But there's no real detail if you're saying the prayer for just yourself, or whose in your house, or what? The Lord said to me one night "pray for all". This was perfect. So as in the prayer lines like "give us, forgive us, or deliver us, etc" adding "all" after "us" felt great. The Lord Blessed me with this, as to pray for all people. As in the Word there are several sayings like Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:35, 2 Peter 3:9, along with many others showing Gods glorious mercy and love for everyone. It may be hard to see it at the point in life you are in, life's not easy, but He's with you. As I just felt to share with this with you all. In that it may help in any way.

    I'm sure we all have our own relationship with God and Christ. It truly is special when we are intimate with our Perfect Father. Producing good fruit with His will. God Bless you all my brothers and sisters, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • Jackie Luke 9 - in Reply on Luke 9
    The disciples could cast out all devil's because jesus gave them the power to do it in Mark 6.13 And they cast out many devil's and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them But they could not cast out the devil because this job was for jesus only John 18.37 pilate therefore said unto him Art thou a king then? Jesus answered thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was i born and for this cause came i into the world that i should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. John 12.31 Now is the judgment of this world now shall the prince of this world BE CAST OUT thank you for your Response may God bless you always

    Robyn Hocking - In reply on Revelation 15:5 Rebekah Bates

    Hi Rebekah, I find several references to Lucifer being the covering Cherub but not of the Mercy seat or Beama, Could You let me know where this reference is from please?

    My research has led me to understand that linked to his description of the light bearer ( not light in himself) as covering cherub he most likely reflected the True Light / Glory of God. Many descriptions of the throne Of God are as having the appearance of a rainbow behind it. Considering the beauty and colours described by God as to How Lucifer was formed one could expect such a covering to reflect a rainbow effect. Possibly, now a new, more beautiful and faithful cherub would most likely been formed to continue the function. But through Lucifers great vanity he no longer qualifies. I don't believe it was covering in the sense of protection as much as it was covering in the sense of magnifying the presence or the Beauty of the Glory. I hope this is of Help to your understanding.

    God bless you and prosper your understanding.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1:14
    You mention the 'big bang'. Would not that assume that there had to be material, whether solid or chemical, for that to happen? In other words, how can there be a bang when there's nothing there? So where did that material come from? Even the smallest atom or the tiniest spark requires someone to have caused its creation & appearance.

    It sounds like one needs a lot more faith to believe those 'scientists' which tell us that certain things happened in the distant past without any verifiable, documented, photographic evidence. Looking at some rocks can give some indication of an history of the worlds, but I've yet to learn of the possibility & reason for a 'big bang' without an instigator. If one would like to question those who believe in a Creator God, one should first convince himself that his belief in these other 'facts' are actually not an expression of faith on his part. When we are convinced that there is no God, then in our minds, the reason for our existence must be found in finite man's mental assumptions that would give us any reason or excuse to justify the non-existence of God.
  • Becoming a real Disciple of Jesus Christ - in Reply on Luke 9
    What did Jesus reply to Satan when Jesus had been Fasting 40 days in the wilderness ??

    It's in the Gospel chapters.

    You better have some scripture inside of YOU, to mix with your Faith in Jesus, by way of the Holy Spirit,

    iF you are going to pray for someone to be set free from demons. That's a whole big study there! HOW did Jesus DO IT??

    We've heard how the disciples didn't do so good their first time out all day long. Know why?

    The Holy Spirit hadn't fallen on them yet. They had to wait till Pentecost. But they had seen Jesus do it. Jesus told them: heal the sick , cast out demons, cleanse the leper's. Freely you have received, freely give.

    We're supposed to be learning this stuff!

    There are many good Teachers on FM Radio you could be listening to. They've all been teaching on Ephesians 6. Demons and spirits are invisible. Can you fight something invisible?

    Do you know what your Sword of the Spirit is?? Is it big or little? It is your knowledge of scripture: that is your sword.

    David killed Goliath with a rock. But he saw that rock pierce Goliaths head and enter his brain. Goliath blasphemed The God of Israel and David could not stand by and eat all that ridicule. He had a deep relationship with God. That he got by spending time in Gods presence.

    When the demons ridicule you.... what have you got to throw at them?

    God made clothes for Adam and Eve??

    God made a uterus for Eve later, after she'd been created??

    How about this one (a prophesy about Jesus spoken in Genesis 3:15). Jesus is going to crush your head, which he did on the Cross!

    There's a ton of scriptures you can beat up demons with. Get in the Bible. Quit treating the Bible like public school. You can't use cheat notes on a live demon.

  • Stanjett on Genesis 1:14
    I thought this was suppose to be a discussion on Genesis 1. Most here are jumping around to other chapters of the bible. One thing that I noticed about Genesis 1 is that at first we and all animals were vegetians. We ate no meat yet.

    How could anyone look at this world and the sun and think they just evolved from nothing? The sun burns at the perfect temp and has never ran out of fuel every since it was created so how many things do you know that burn and never run out of fuel or run low? How can anyone look at the earth and everything in it and think it evolved from nothing to? Have you non believers every thought how complex the human body and all living things on this earth and think it just evolved from nothing to? How can anyone think we were once monkey's? How many monkeys have you seen sit down at a table and chart the course to mars and back to earth? It is so easy for me to see that this world and everything in it was created by God! I have no doubt in my mind. Just think about really hard and then tell me you think everything was not created by God! I will tell you all one more thing. The Bible is getting fulfilled very very fast, just read all the verses on the end of time and you will see! Thank you everyone and God bless everyone of you! Jesus is going to come down out of the sky and we do not know when but he is coming and there is going to be a lot of scared people that day or night!
  • Rick Colombe - in Reply on Revelation 13:15
    To Ronnie on Revelation 13:15. Why are you getting upset over the letter "J"? If you're dissatisfied with the name Jesus, then you have to take issue with every other name in God's Word with the letter "J", such as Jacob, Jesse, Joseph, Joshua, James, John, and others. Even Judas!!! Why would you bother yourself and others with something that bears absolutely NO consequence? I pray God will open your eyes to what is important,
  • D.J. - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    Mark Padmore,

    How do you know the coats of skin was animal skin?
  • D.J. - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    Janice Lane,

    I never said Adam and Eve were angels.

    I said that Adam and Eve were "AS" angels of light; because they had not sinned yet.

    I agree. Adam and Eve were humans.

    The notion that Adam and Eve may have put on actual skin is an alternate idea to the coat of animal skin that I find to be possible. I am not saying that I know this to be fact.

    I was not there. I do not know for sure. Do you?

    From your responses, I will ask you the following:

    Where does the Bible state that "this is the first blood sacrifice for the remission of sins"?

    Where does the Bible state that the skin used to cover Adam and Eve came from an animal at all?

    Where does the Bible state that a "ram" was the animal skin used for the covering?

    Are you making assumptions?
  • Medical Explanation of Jesus39s Death - in Reply on 1 John 5
    John 19:31-34

    The bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath the Jews asked Pilate that the legs might be broken and that they might be taken away. The soldiers came and broke the legs of the 1st and 3rd prisoners. Jesus was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, there came out blood and water." Why did blood and water come out of Jesus' side??

    Crucifixion typically resulted in death through one of two ways: The first was HYPOVOLEMIC shock. The prolonged rapid heartbeat resulting from hypovolemic shock can cause fluid to gather in the area around the heart. This is called pericardial effusion.

    The second way death occurred during crucifixion was due to asphyxiation. The person is unable to breathe in enough oxygen to survive. Crucifixion victims had to pull their weight up with their hands or wrists that were nailed; along with pushing up with the feet or ankles that had another nail through them. Over time, the ability to push up to breathe would end and oxygen flow would be restricted. *This asphyxiation can also result in the buildup of fluid around the heart.

    In either case, the account of John is quite accurate. The Romans saw that the other two crucifixion victims were still alive and broke their legs so they would no longer be able to push themselves up to breathe, resulting in death within minutes. Jesus, they saw He had become unconscious and likely was already dead. To confirm, a spear was shoved into His side, likely under His ribs, that ruptured the PERICARDIAL sack, resulting in a flow of both blood and water.

    This manner of death was a brutal end for Jesus, there was also prophetic significance to this event. John states in John 19:36-37, "For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled: 'Not one of his bones will be broken. And again another Scripture says, They will look on him whom they have pierced.

    Prophesies: Exodus 12:46. Zechariah 12:10.

  • Jackie Bolin on Luke 9
    If God give the disciple power to cast out all devil's why could they not cast the devil Out of the kid ? It says because Your unbelief Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting

    Matthew 9.14 15 the disciples fast not and jesus said the children of the bridegroom can not fast as long as he is here?

    Read Genesis 1:28. God made male and female and told them to be fruitful and multiple.
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on Ephesians 4:30
    And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. Will all men come to repentance? Even if you are able to raise pharaohs bones for a witness, you will see the hardness in mans heart!
  • Janice Lane on 1 John 5
    1 John 5:6 what is meant by Jesus being born of water and blood? I recently heard a teacher use this verse to explain how heavenly bodies do not have blood. And that this is proof that Adam had water as his circulatory system before the fall and after he had blood which made him mortal. Is there any other verses that reference this topic?
  • William M Patterson on Revelation 2:10
    hello, so in verse 17 where it reads "and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written"

    does that mean we are given a new name?

    or what is the new name he's referring too?
  • The Holy Spirit and the Body of Christ on Psalms 72
    Luke 11:13

    If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

    Comment: if we need help understanding scripture, their is no limit on asking the Holy Spirit to teach you what something means.

    By all means, be reverent (honor Him).

    If you study a lot; over time your relationship with the Holy Spirit will be free flowing, enjoyable, desirable. It will make your heart ache with love for Him.

    He is part of the Godhead that created everything! And He wants to sit with You! And teach you what scripture means. Write it down. Don't allow the cares of life take away His words to you.

    Jesus went to the Cross to bring salvation to us. He also gave us the Holy Spirit: who is the Spirit of Christ. Jesus.

    Jesus is the HEAD of the Body of Christ. We are members of His Body. Which part are you? I used to listen to others guess the parts amongst us. Funny talk. One day a friend looked at me and said, you're a forefinger. That hurt me. That was 30 years ago. Be who God made you to be. You are unique. We are His Body on earth.

    Think about that.

    Mishael
