  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I've looked at those Isaiah references you gave & could not find any reference to "dreaming of a Bible verse". Is this what you meant or maybe you have had a verse come to you in a dream? If you can give extra information about what you're thinking.
  • Mike Acosta on John 5:43
    Why is it wrong to pray to the Virgin Mary? I know that it takes away the reason for Jesus coming and dying for our sins, but is there any benefit to pray to Mary as some believe?

    Carl, you've said some things here that require some further dealing. Specifically, "I have decided to worship and return to God. I don't believe I am worthy. I have been a christian all my life but for the past 15 years or so I have been a non believer." And, "I used to feel emotional and feel the closeness to God. Now I find it difficult to feel."

    My testimony is quite similar to yours, having been brought up in a God-fearing home & going through all the spiritual exercises a child would do. I left home at 17 yrs of age to pursue my career, which took me into a world devoid of a Christian environment & counsel. I caved in to the lusts of the flesh & for identification with my peers; & for all intents & purposes, I was not a Christian, never saved, having just given a mental/verbal assent to the Gospel. However, after almost nine years of wicked living, the Spirit of God met me in my defence quarters & brought me into an extremely deep conviction of my sin - I was literally torn apart because of the gravity of my sin & certainty of a Christless eternity.

    You've said that you've decided to return to God. Was this a mental decision from a sense of being wayward & because of the circumstances you may find yourself in & in the world of turmoil today? You know Carl, if WE decide to follow God or attend to His commands, then that's all we'll do (as the Jews do in their mental affirmation & obedience to God). But if we sense the Spirit's Work in us, then actually a miracle takes place in our lives, & we can't help but weep for our sins & call upon the Saviour for the work of the Cross to be applied to us. That drawing to & convicting of, is all of God & can never be of us. And this is the more pertinent to folk like us, who were either never saved or have come out of a long period of Christ rejection & disobedience.

    Does Bibleonline have the Spanish translation?
  • Robert - in Reply on Deuteronomy 4
    With regards to this thread, I must ask for my own clarification, "How is the cross any different?"

    We worship the lamb, the cross, etc.

    Made by men's hands...

    No life or breathe in them...

    Not trying to be argumentative; it just always pricks me when I read these scriptures because not only do I believe in devotional studies, but I also believe in keeping the context and reading from Genesis to Revelations.
  • Chris - in Reply on Philippians 4:17
    DJ, you've got me thinking over this, so pardon my further question: if all this existed as you suggest (i.e. Adam in Eden & the others in various parts of the world), then what happened at the Flood & subsequent to its devastating result? Was the Flood contained locally, or was it a global flood? If global (by all indications it was: Genesis 6:17), then what of the future of those 'others'? Possibly, a second Ark? And if I'm here walking the Earth today, who are my ancestors, since I've not come out of Adam, Noah & his descendants? I'm getting more despondent & fearful as I consider this proposition & the possibility of its reality, & this would affect many reading these comments.
  • Chris - in Reply on Philippians 4:17
    DJ, you present an interesting view of creation. You mentioned: "The instructions given to Adam are completely different than the instructions given to the rest of mankind". So assuming that there were 'other creations' of the human species on Earth at the same time (or later), what are these instructions that were given to them? If these are not recorded for us, could we then be just insignificant or worthless people in His Sight, only here for populating the Earth?

    If we account for the existence of 'cave men' (& others) via this assumption, then I wonder why Adam & Eve were made in the image of God, with His Qualities & Traits, while these cave people's appearance & lifestyle, as we're led to believe, resembled more like animals?

    Also, can we also assume that these 'others' did not sin as Adam & Eve did & so we might in fact have races of people right now who are sinless in the world? If this is so, shouldn't the Bible at least account for these other people, their temptations to sin, & God's dealing with them? It seems rather strange that God would only speak about Adam & Eve (because through them the Saviour would eventually come), but neglect about the state of the others. Then again, maybe God focused on Adam & his progeny for obvious reasons, but cared little for the rest of us. Why should we even need the Gospel to be proclaimed to us, since we may not need it because of our state, or for God's little care for us.

    You raise some serious matters that can have frightening impact on our lives present & future.
  • Mishael on earth destruction and restoration on 1 Timothy 3
    I stayed up most of last night, being led through BIBLE SCRIPTURES, that back up what the teacher is teaching. It is painstakingly slow, And biblically SOUND.

    I would not have even listened to it if it didn't have scriptural foundation. The teacher uses the Hebrew to explain the events that happened. I do not know why I had NEVER heard this expanded teaching before, at church, but I have now. I still have 3 hours to listen to!

    Here are some scripture passages you'll want to mark for that study. At one point I just began to write all over the page margins :/

    This may interest you to listen to it on YouTube later.

    Genesis 1, Job 1:8, restoration of earth in Genesis,

    Jeremiah 4;23-28

    Jeremiah 4:26 Gods anger

    Isaiah 24:1 Is pre-Adam; God turned earth upside down,

    Job 9:1-9 earth frozen ball of ice

    Revelation ch 6

    Job 38. Science has proved the Bible is accurate;

    Deu. 32:4 Gods work is perfect

    Isaiah 45:18

    Eccl. 3:11

    Psalms 18:30

    Genesis verses 6-9 restoration not creation

    Genesis 1-2 earth not 6 thousand years old; it's billions, what science proved.

    I had all the prophetic scriptures boxed; I just didn't know how the fit in. When it says former inhabitants and people's, those are the 1/3 angels that followed Lucifer.

    Isaiah 14:17 20 spoken by demons to Lucifer

    Satan was in hell when Adam was created. He was turned into a snake. Was in the garden Ezekiel 28:13

    Ezekiel 28: 1-19 Lucifer>Satan

    Lucifer went from Archangel/ covering Cherub. God>Holy Spirit>Jesus>Lucifer

    4th in line to the throne. Isaiah 14:12

    YouTube. WAR IN THE HEAVENLIES, by Benny Hinn. 5 hour teaching

    Why do we need to put this together so we can understand it?? Because people ask questions. And..,it's very important to Satan. We need to know HOW he came to be loose on the earth; after Adam and after Jesus'S death on the Cross.

    For myself and you, we have a responsibility to piece this together as it really happened.
  • Robert Stoltz on Mark 8
    Ehh...is He talking about the rapture..or the second coming! I noticed He said''the son of man,and also ''with the Holy angels?

    8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

    9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

    11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

    At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

  • Valarie on John 5:43
    I can not seem to find the scripture regarding thankfulness. I remember I was in jail and there was a woman that was very angry . I was just an infant in CHRIST at that time. But I remember I was giving GOD thanks for all things. She was very angry and had the attitude how could I give thanks for being in jail. Of course I was thankful because in my heart I realized things could always be worse, but also I had read a scripture saying giving thanks for all things and I showed it to her and she was surprised. But now I can not find that scripture. Please help. Thank you.

    Albert, Really? tongues was the least gift of them all per Paul.

    1 Corinthians 12:28 - And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. (Tongues the last least gift.)

    1 Corinthians 12:29 - Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

    1 Cor 12:30 - Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? (the answer is NO)

    1 Cor 12:31 - But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

    1 Corinthians 14:5 I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues. (GREATER IS HE THAT PROPHESY THAN TONGUES)

    Why would anyone want the least gift?

    1 Corinthians Chapter 14: 26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.

    27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

    28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

    ....But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church....

    not one Pentecostal church I have ever been to have ever followed this in scripture.
  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 37:13
    Hello, I believe you answered your own question. Reading God's Word with an open seeking heart builds faith. Also, believing, praying, and applying what you read. God bless!
  • Jerry w goss on Genesis 10:25
    In Genesis 10:25, what is the meaning of the phrase: "for in his days was the earth divided?"
  • Albert on Acts 19:2
    I encourage all believers to receive the gift of the HolyGhost by the evidence of speaking with the other tongues. I ask everybody, "Have you received the HolyGhost since you believed? God is still pouring out the HolyGhost upon all those who believe. The HolyGhost is for everybody. From the WhiteHouse to the Outhouse. God will pour it out on all who receive him.
  • Albert - in Reply on Acts 1:8
    First, have you received the HolyGhost since you have believed? If you have received the HolyGhost and you desire to pray in tongues. Then, ask God to give you the gift of tongues. God will answer your prayer. I received the Holy Spirit while I was a teenager. I spoke in tongues at the initial infilling of the HolyGhost but I did not have the gift of tongues. Then, God blessed me to speak in tongues because I asked him to allow me to pray in tongues. God answered my prayer. I desired to know what I was saying while I was communing in the spirit. My spirit was being refreshed, but I did not know what I was saying to God. I asked to give me the interpretation of tongues, and guess what? He did. Interpretation does not mean translation. It means I know what was being said in tongues. If you desire, this gift, God will give it to you. I just want to make sure that you have been filled with the HolyGhost. If you received the HolyGhost by the evidence of speaking with other tongues, God will grant you the ability to speak with other tongues when you pray. It happens to me every time I pray, God will do the same for you.

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Jeremiah 51
    so did whites transliterate the Bible?

    Bible book Song of Solomon 5:10 - My beloved is WHITE white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.

    Bible book Lamentations 4:7 - Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were WHITER whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire:

    Revelation 1:14 - His (Jesus) head and his hairs were WHITE white like wool, as WHITE white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass,

    (Brass is made of copper which is REDDISH GOLDEN BROWN) as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj on Joel 3
    Sin Separates



    In this chapter we see reasons for judgement as Sin separates people from God. In making application we see why Jesus had to come and why we must be saved. Because sin separates an unholy man from a holy God. How about you? Do you see your need for a Savior? Let us learn from our text today and Word of the Lord to see that sins separates man from God and the reason we must be Saved.

  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 30:1
    1 Corinthians chapter 11 gives the ruling on head covering, of both men & women. The instruction is clearly that of a physical head covering & the reason for that is because of the order of creation (Christ is the head of man, as man is the head of woman) & for the observance of angelic beings in our corporate worship (v 10). This instruction was never to be a burden for women, as in those days particularly, it was quite natural for the head to be covered. But there may have been some who refused to do so, & therefore this instruction was given. And this applied to men who wilfully refused to remove their covering. All these actions were dishonouring to the Lord & showed contempt for each other.

    Why is this not generally practised today? Various reasons are given, chiefly because of it not being culturally done/acceptable in general society, except for protection from the sun or for fashion at events. Each one of us must be convinced in our own hearts over this matter & to be careful not to be in judgement over another thus falling into sin.
  • Obbie Beal on Revelation 18
    2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon The Great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

    Note: what caused her to fall? .... by-way of the heart of men, women, children... devils, fouls spirit, plus becoming a holding-place for uncleanness & hatefulness, she /they fell.
