  • Patty Tozi on Amos 6
    The Lord is my Shepard. I shall not want.

    Always remember the Giant God that watches over us. His spirit is all around us. He knows when we are Lonely..Hurting..sad.. Wanting Him close. His Love has such depth that it could move the tallest heaviest mountain. His Light so strong it blinds you. Been to Heaven..saw truth in Him. Saw His Heavenly Son fighting for me. He is real. The Bible...His words to take care of us..His creations..is Strong truth who He is...and what He wants for us..the evilness of this world is now being shown strong...fight as we never fought before. Who do you choose? Think...think heavy...Decide now. The power of His words.. The Blood of His Son...The suffering of His Son...fighting and dying for our Sins--should be enough to turn to Him as never before. Fight we must...Fight as the evilness tries and take Him from us. On your knees with your Bible..Fight...Fight...you must as the days become as His words warned us in Revelation. God's people must never turn back. Remember His words.. A brighter tomorrow we will have!!!
  • Ken on Amos 6
    Esther 8:17 and many of the people of the land became Jews.

    If the people of the land "became Jews" it wasn't by blood, so it must have been ceremonial and believing in the true God. Were they then part of the nation of Isreal that can claim promises from God?
  • Leslie Olayiwola on Psalms 141
    It's about communion. Every 1st Sunday in Church we had communion, we are to show the LORD's death toll he returns. Confess sins, only God can take away. Haven't had communion since lock down. How should I have communion at home,should I have it at home and why can't I have it at home? I am a Christian not a Catholic it makes a difference to me.

    I await your answer. But in the mean time I will check my

    Bible.
  • Bob Hilt on Deuteronomy 2
    Susannah, Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children OF of the wicked one;

    1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was OF of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

    So is Adam the wicked one? The denominational church world does not seem to know....
  • Mishap reply Hebrews chapter 1 - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    Hebrews chapter 1

    Hath in these last days spoken unto us by HIS SON, whom HE hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also HE MADE THE WORLDS.

    Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of his person, and

    UPHOLDING ALL THINGS by the WORD of HIS POWER,

    when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high

    Being made so much better than the angels, as HE hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

    My Comment: Atoms, Molecules, DNA strands, etc. Jesus held and now holds everything, as it says, in His Hands. Makes me think of that old bible school song, "He's got the whole world in His hands."

    He's holding everything in its place. He's THE WORD of GOD.

    Some scientists DENY Biblical involvement: Darwin, Hawking and others. It's a shame others who follow their lead, may miss out on seeing New Jerusalem; seeing Jesus and the Light of Gods Glory.

    Maybe to some it's just not real to them because man doesn't get any credit for their Discoveries? Simple people just believe what God has revealed, in His Son.

    There is a book of Remembrance in which is recorded the conversations we have about the Godhead. Angels lean in to hear what we speak out. Ought we not to keep a lid on our weak faith concerning these matters?

    I once had zero faith in these things until I read the Word of Almighty God; repented of my sins and received Salvation.

    I have a brand new belief system. I'm learning something new every day. The other day I learned that every Jewish word that ends in HIM is speaking of the 3 persons of the Godhead: like Elohim

    ( I'm not sure how it's spelled, but this'll work)

    And Goodnight dear ones.

    It is wrong for me to judge you and if you are serious; I will attempt to answer some of your questions and some thing that I can understand about one of the questions, The other thing is that this site has a search block and you can find a lot of things there and also you can easily find all of the previous comments on any issue. I do not know if you have done that but it is nice to know. So your questions.

  • Susannah on Deuteronomy 2
    I was taught that the ones Jesus was talking to from the cross were the children of the first liar and murderer. (Cain) The ones who pretended to be Jews from the first by attaching themselves to them by getting to be the scribes of Judah. (woe to you scribes and Pharisees). Kenites are who he is referring to. They still try to put themselves in the place of God's people. Just the way satan always tries to assume God's place (the reason he was kicked out in the first place). He will return trying to take the Messiah's place as the anti Christ. Cain. Ever questioned why Cain's not in Adam's genealogy? A poser isn't it?

  • Mishael on the God of the Universe - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    I'm not the kind of person that points my arthritic fingers ( from drafting 22 yrs) at anyone.

    We can see what we see. To me science is a point of view; beautiful to consider along with scripture. I believe in "let God be true and every man a liar". God doesn't lie to us. All we like sheep have gone astray to other interpretations.

    I was an astrologer for 22 years: so I studied planets and stars. Rather than ask God, I did it myself. I had books of planet movements, forward, retrograde, forward again. All to interpret a seekers life. I wasn't getting rich off it, but I had notoriety. People believed in it through me. It is occult and in the Bible it carries a death sentence. Horoscopes are a lie. They draw us away from what God plans for our life. The stars didn't explain MY life. Then I met our Creator! It's burned into my brain the first time after that, I was sitting on a swing looking at the sky and all I saw was God in his creation! I wept buckets.

    God hung the planets, stars, comets, asteroids and everything to circle the Sun. He orchestrates their movements. Earth is anchored by Him; protected by Him. Pure unadulterated faith in God keeps us safe in his care. The moons travel with the planets they are attached to. Sometimes forward, sometimes fixed, sometimes retrograde. We don't know why, because who can search out what God does? Someday only Gods Light will be our source. Don't you want to see that? A whole new view to be inspired by; with Him as the Creator of inspiration.

    God has been teaching me all of my life since I was a child. I just don't know why. We're not just floating endlessly on this rock we call home: living, dying. Traveling aimlessly through it. Like ants, we don't see the foot thats coming down on us. We've been given the opportunity to search for WHO made all of this. Ants never look up.

    God is Beautiful, through and through. Come and see the Goodness of the Lord!

    Receive Him as Lord and Savior.

    Paul also wrote that "the Law is not of faith: But the man that doeth them shall live in them" (Galatians 10:12); quoted from Leviticus 18:5. And Paul immediately reminds us that "Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree" (Galatians 10:13) quoted from Deuteronomy 21:23. Those that hang on trees have transgressed the Law. Paul uses two passages from the Law to show us that we cannot live without the Law?

    James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

    The words of Jesus confirm the 10 Commandments found in the books of the LAW, Exodus 20:1-17, Luke 10:27.

    The only people that do not NEED the Law are those that are not sinning. No matter how righteous we may think we are, we all sin every day and are made new (every day) through repentance and forgiveness.

    Just because we have been brought to Christ does not mean that we cannot fall away again.

    Concerning the abolishment of the Law of God:

    The book of Hebrews shows us that the 7th day, the Temple, the Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, etc., are a copy or replication of what God has already established in Heaven.

    Hebrews 8:5 "They serve in a place that is a COPY and SHADOW of the heavenly meeting tent. This is indicated when Moses was warned by God when he was about to set up the meeting tent: See that you FOLLOW THE PATTERN that I showed you on the mountain in every detail;" from Exodus 25:40.

    The heavenly pattern is what we follow, and God has not left us any information concerning that being changed in any way.

    The fulfillment, partial or total that Christ has done in the Law does not make that Law abolished. For instance, the Temple is gone. We have become His Temple. The veil was rent from top to bottom (Matthew 27:51) to show that we no longer need a priest to reconcile our sins for us. We all have forgiveness based upon repentance.

    Fulfillment, in full, or in part, of the Law does not abolish it. What do you do with all other Scripture that does not agree with your assessment?

    When Christ rose and spoke in the Synagogue on the Sabbath, He specifically left out the words in Luke 4:18-19 concerning the "Day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 61:1-2) because that day has not come upon us all yet.

    Christ came to fulfill the Law, not abolish it. Has the Law been completely fulfilled? No. We are still under the Law, which

    Paul states "is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself" (Galatians 5:14)

    The "curse" of the Law is a persons' inability to keep it. That "curse" is what Christ has taken on for us. Not the Law. The Law is just and perfect. It is humans that cannot remain righteous; not even a single day of our lives!
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj on Amos 6
    Provisions or Possessions

    In this chapter we see how God despises Israel's pride as the people competed in extravagance while they continued to suppress the poor. In making application we see how the Lord hates a proud look as it is self worship. The Lord provides all of our needs and there is nothing wrong with providing for our families but when our provisions become possessions or idols the Lord will judge. How about you? Are your provisions from the Lord a possession of pride? Let us learn from our text today and the example of Israel to see how their pride of their possessions at the expense of others brought them the judgement of the Lord.
  • Peter Grant Budgewoi Australia on Genesis 1:25
    Greetings and God bless you Misheal - I always revert to - How does it compare to what The word Of God says.

    Most of the "Scientists?" believe in a big bang starting life, and Apes turning into humans.

    Strange but I can't seem to find that in any of the bible translations. Another thing I 'll run by you Misheal is this

    They also tell us we are spinning around the Sun and the Moon!

    I read in the Bible - In the beginning God created the heaven (singular) and Earth - The Sun and Moon had not been created until V :16 - what was the Earth spinning around then?

    No Christian has yet to been able to give me CH & V to show me it spins and set my mind at rest, So I keep coming up with questions they would rather not hear All they can muster is Isaiah 40:22 But Hey! a CIRCLE is not a Ball

    Any picture the scientists present are all CGI including the Earth

    what are your thoughts on that Mate?

    I'm not pointing a finger at anybody and saying "You are wrong!" All I want is someone to give me scriptural proof that i am the one that is wrong

  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 12:8
    Teboho, I see that both these accounts, referring to Spiritual Gifts, as complementing each other. I don't think that we should necessarily look at these lists from the apostle, as exhaustive. They may well be other gifts that have not been specifically mentioned. But what is evident, is that God wants His Church to be well equipped in serving each other, for the building up in our faith & blessing of each other. After all, we are a community within a community & just as parents give all due care & instruction to their children, so the Church, with its members so gifted, should also use those gifts for the building up of one another in love. It may be true that certain gifts may not be seen or even necessary in a fellowship today, but the Spirit does give each one a gift to be used to edify the Body.

    You may, or may not have, a gift from the Spirit that is listed there. It may be something very unique, just as each one of us is unique in Christ. The important part is that the person with the gift or position is not elevated (as was being done in Corinth, 1 Cor 3:4), but rather that the Church grow & the gift in that person be exercised. How do we know our gift? It won't come as a letter from Heaven but most likely as we walk with the Lord & are active in our Fellowship, we will sense our special God-given abilities, our direction, our joy in service even when it gets demanding, because we will know that this is the Lord's doing & enabling & blessing to the Church must be the result.

  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 12:8

    Neither. Because the Law of the Life-giving Spirit has taken those righteous commandments of God & now written them in our hearts (Hebrews 10:16). Isn't this then the same thing as being obedient to the Law? No, when we obey the Holy Spirit & not looking to the letter of the Law, our obedience to God then comes out of a renewed heart/spirit that has all that is necessary to obey Him. And this also includes the Fruit of the Spirit, walking in the Spirit & the Law of the Spirit & the Law of Liberty (Js 2:12). So when the Law says, Do not kill, we now know that it also applies to those who are angry with another without cause. When the Law says, Do not commit adultery, it now means even just the act of looking at a woman with lust (Matthew 5:21,22,28,29). If we want to buy a bunch of grapes, are we immediately convicted if we want to just take one to check if it is sweet? Or, do we justify our actions?

    We have never denied the righteousness of God's Laws, but the Scripture tells us that only through Jesus we can be saved & only by His Spirit we can keep God's Laws that went beyond the letter & that which is now inscribed in our hearts. So even if we didn't have Scriptures as mentioned in Matthew 5 to teach us, I know we would still be aware of its Truth as the Spirit teaches us God's Holy demands upon us. We don't need to know God's Laws as they are already written in our hearts & we can choose to obey to enjoy God's fellowship & favour or disobey so allowing our sinful nature to resurrect itself.

    Mercy Seat (1 John 2:1. God now meets us through Christ Who is our Mercy Seat, for the expiation of our sins & averting the Wrath of God from us).

    So, it is only through Christ that we can see God's Holy requirement for His people (Jew & Gentile alike). If God saw us through the keeping (obedience) to the OT Law, then the Cross of Christ is made pointless & of no effect. Hence, Romans 8:3 reminds us that the Law was weak through the flesh (i.e. inadequate/ineffective because of our inability to fulfil the whole Law). If we sinned in even one aspect of the Law, we have sinned in all (Js 2:10). There was nothing wrong with the Law: it was our inability to keep the whole Law that proved our sinfulness, which meant that God had to send His Son, His Word in the flesh to take the punishment for us. Why? So that the righteousness of the Law might then be fulfilled in us & not in the keeping of the Law.

    Are they correct, who say that we must obey the Law? If they maintain that we have to obey God's Law to the letter as well as being saved by grace through faith, then that belief is in direct violation to the meaning of the Cross & what the apostles preached & gave their lives for. In biblical terms, we never have to obey God's Laws as given to Israel to be right before God, because they could never work; we now look to Jesus Who fulfilled those righteous Laws in Himself, so that our focus is not on the letter but on the spirit of the law. So, Romans 8:1,2 gives the best description (transliterated): we who believe in Christ are no longer condemned by the Law, because we now live by the Spirit of God. Why? Because the LAW OF THE LIFE GIVING SPIRIT has set us free from the Law that only showed us our sin & brought death. And so how does this work out in our obedience to God? Do we still come by faith in Jesus & obey the Law to complement it? Or, if that is harsh, then maybe we just keep the Laws in our minds to guide us in our Christian walk? (onto Page 3.)
  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 12:8
    Page 1.

    Teboho, what has been suggested to you concerning obedience to the Law is not entirely correct as far as the biblical meaning & application are concerned. Maybe it's only on a technical point but when it comes to such an important subject, we need to understand the Scriptures correctly so there is not only no confusion in our minds but also to others when they hear/read this message. So, in defence of the Word on this subject, I submit the following for your consideration & comparison to what you have heard elsewhere.

    I doubt if anyone who truly believes in God, in His Son & the Word, could ever say that 'Christians are free to do whatever they like since we are not under the law': this is called antinomianism ("freed from moral law by virtue of the Grace given in & through Christ"). To say this, shows our gross misunderstanding of God's Laws, Whose "Laws are holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good" (Romans 7:12).

    So the questions that we need to ask & address: what are the Laws of God, to whom were they given & what was their purpose? We know that all the Laws given to Israel (as shown in Exodus & Leviticus mainly) were given to them & not to the Gentiles (these were not God's chosen people & not in God's (OT) view for blessing & eternal life). These Laws (the whole Law, including those pertaining to ceremony, festivals, daily life), including circumcision, these made Israel distinct from everyone else, as well as the Tabernacle with the Mercy Seat, where God met with His people. So, all the commandments given to Israel, not only identified them as God's Chosen, but also, through prophecy, pointed to a later, perfect fulfilment of them. Therefore, we understand that God's Son, Jesus Christ, was sent in complete fulfilment of those prophecies, whether in the Law (Matthew 5:17), Circumcision (not cut in the flesh but in the heart by Christ's sacrifice & worshipping God in the spirit, Philippians 3:3-5; Colossians 2:11), (cont'd on Page 2.)

  • Peter Grant Budgewoi Australia - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    Well Pete how are you? - You say I must be joking regarding the cosmology of the Moon - Believe me I am not! I never joke about the word of GOD and the Bible

    God says the Moon is a light - NASA says it is solid - You told me everyone knows the Moon is solid!

    So tell me this - How do they know - Has everyone been to the Moon? - No not at all! Most people blindly believe what they are told by Scientists and NASA ( That openly displays in red "THE SERPENTS FORKED TONGUE")

    I encourage you to do some research on them Science also tells us we came from Apes!!! Do you believe that?

    Let God be true and every man a liar Romans 3:4

    The Bible tells me - The Earth is a flat non- rotating plain - The center of what is known as the FIRMAMENT - The Moon Sun and the stars revolve around us

    In the beginning God created the heaven and Earth - The Sun and Moon had not been created until V :16

    Another question for you ! ....... Does it mention it was spinning?? - If it indeed does spin give me Chapter and verse because I have missed it - Because I also want to know" WHAT WAS IT SPINNING AROUND" as the SUN MOON & STARS were not there!!

  • Mishael on Peaceful Protests - in Reply on Luke 23:31
    Find where Jesus participated in a peaceful protest?

    The crowd that screamed for His crucifixion was somewhat orderly till they brought him to the podium with a red horse blanket over him and a crown of thorns (needles 5 inches long):

    The crowd became a DEMON and screamed for The Guilty Verdict. Penalty: Death

    I know if many of you have heard of actual demonic persecution. It's a whole different teaching but it's in the New Testament in numerous places.

    Demons are no doubt in the crowds pushing people to do the unthinkable. They had the Pharisees doing demonic will. Demons thought they finally had the Son of God at last... to suffer and die a grisly death for working on the Sabbath.

    Demons of violence; chaos; murder; demons of death! Spiritual wickedness.

    People who take over protests are possessed by Satan with plans for mayhem. They don't care if you're blinded by a rubber bullet.

    The New Testament in the Bible has a lot to say about last days Of violence. It would be wise to study that.

    Try thinking what cities will be like one hour after the rapture (Caught Up) happens? There's not enough police to stop a flood of demon possessed people armed with guns or baseball bats. If recent hoarding wasn't bad enough; after the Rapture they'll knock in your doors for what they want. It's gonna be bad...

    It's not a phenomenon or a fad; it's a preview.
  • Mishael reply to Peter - in Reply on Genesis 3
    You did not offend me. My phone died and had to plug it in....and get sleep. I have health problems too; but that is never an excuse not to study Gods Word.

    I think you may need a New Bible WITH center of the page columns, concordance & dictionary. Some of this study needs a way to see the Hebrew meaning of words. Most Old Testament was written in Hebrew. :/

    Sometimes I find really good Bibles at resale stores, like Goodwill. Just wait to buy till you see one with center of page columns.

    Most people hate (can I use that word?) Benny Hinn. He has the best explanation of spiritual warfare. I'd be dead if not for that.

    He has a 5 HOUR teaching on YouTube you can listen to. If we can get past "the vessel" that God chose to deliver the information through, we'd be able to help people who are oppressed.

    He starts out with the foundation of where demons came from. Which is the part that interests you. Before, during and after Genesis.

    I investigated where he was pulling in that information and found that he was using the Center Column references to other scriptures that supported what's going on in Genesis, BUT with some Hebrew word definition. The best way to do that is to write the verses down on paper (with the verse name). It's going to take a lot of time. Note: INHABITANTS (you can use the KJV website to search and read verses). Inhabitants seem to be the evil angels who had bodies: that inhabited the land, married, built cities and caused God to be very angry. When God got finished with them they didn't have bodies anymore and Satan was in hell until the Garden of Eden; where he appears as a snake.

    Several people in my family are autistic and it doesn't mean you can't learn or teach others. Just pray and send all your questions to the Source: Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. Jesus said I do what I see my Father doing. Holy Spirit teaches us.

    Just get that study Bible; spiral notebooks and you'll be ready to go. See you later :)
  • Mishael on Science - in Reply on Genesis 32
    That's some weighty thought there.

    We're a 3 part being: spirit, soul, flesh.

    "Behold, ALL SOULS ARE MINE; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die."

    When we die, the flesh returns to the dust that it came from. The whole earth is dust.

    God owns the soul. They were paid for by Jesus's blood sacrifice.

    IF the individual received Christ as their Lord and Savior, the spirit is made alive unto God; and returns to God in heaven upon death; to await the moment of Jesus Rapture (Caught Up), in the clouds.

    The believer is transformed into the eternal body which does not decay. Spirit, soul, transformed body.

    I'm not sure why there needs to be a scientific explanation of molecules, atoms and matter?

    God has already set forth what happens and when. Pouring over books just causes weariness of the mind.

    We're supposed to be filling our spiritual lamps to the top with the oil of The Holy Spirit, and be watching for Jesus coming in the clouds. The oil of gladness?

    We're too close to be getting engrossed in weighty theories that busy our mind with anything other than what we're supposed to be doing. No offense intended.

    God could use someone Full of zeal and fire to pray and intercede for scientists of all kinds to come into the Kingdom NOW. It seems boring huh? Mighty angels respond to those prayers.

    Being a Christian is the Best! We just can't be Christians full of pride and self-achievement. Gotta get on God's team :D

    May the Lord bless you.
  • BabzO39Matic - in Reply on Genesis 32
    It is, most certainly, my humble opinion concerning Burial and the methodology of what might refer to, respectfully "dealing with the remains." I assure everyone with a single most and paramount answer; Our God, Father Almighty is Sovereign and therefore ALL those who've died in Jesus will be Resurrected. We're already aware that, "We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord," (2 Corinthians 5:8). A body, alive, is but a vessel of Neutrons, Protons, and Electrons, manipulated by God Almighty within the Womb (It is above my Paygrade to comprehend this, molding of Atoms, prior to conception!). And the possibility, not answered can be that upon our death, the vessel/shell, I believe to be a disposable unit, is left and those Atoms are what is delivered to in the presence of The Father? So, my answer is that the "disposal of remains" does not matter as the Torah does not give guidance towards this finality? In most cases, man-made ceremonies and adornments are what we know today.
