    Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Romans 8

    "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us". That includes "so called" global warming, asteroid impact, volcanos, earthquakes, solar flares or any other "supposed judgement of God".

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1John 4:18

    Mishael, be warned!
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    Adam and Even didn't die? So, do you think they're still alive? Of course they died. They were immortal then after eating the fruit they became mortal and Adam died when he was 930 years old. The Bible didn't specify WHEN he would die, but he died just as God said. So, any assumption as to a timeframe is made up and not in the Bible, as the Bible never said it would be in 5 seconds, 5 minutes, hours, days, or even years. Even characters in the Bible themselves have endured huge patience in waiting on God like Abraham and Sarah. But God did exactly as he said. It just isn't necessarily within man's own arbitrary expectations of when they want things to happen.
  • Mathew thomas on Genesis 2:9
    In Genesis 2 God says not to eat from tree of knowledge or they would die. Later, when they do eat the fruit, they do not die. We know God is truth. So why did he say they would die?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I agree with you that the Doctor will give you a good report. You will live and declare the glory of God. May He give you strength and WISDOM to be a leader lady in the house. Amen Hallelujah!

    You have covenant with your husband, so you two must pull this load together and make joint decisions.

    Your daughter must take over half of the duties of the house. Her husband should do half of the outside work and cars.

    Dinners need to start with one small Psalm from the Bible. It's not offensive. Kids need to respect your belief.

    I heard that grocery stores really need personal shoppers and curbside or delivery for shut-in people. Maybe your brother In law wouldn't mind that, until jobs start coming back? Doing something helps when you're waiting:)

    Your bedroom needs to be off limits so you can go in there and read one chapter of your Bible and say a prayer.

    Just have a family meeting with ice cream and announce work division so there will be peace in the home. You need to take care of yourself so you can manage this.

    Allow Jesus to carry some of the spiritual burden for you: cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you. Give Him the abortion pill burden for sure.

    You can tell her I said that God told me He's Pro-Choice. CHOOSE life so that you and your children may Live. (I told him that's not really what you say nowadays...but He didn't say skip it). Book of Deuteronomy.

    Jesus loves you and is at the right Hand of God, making intercession for all of us. Thank Him for helping you.

    FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

    Google it. Read it. Understand it.

    I too was in a very similar dark season of wilderness. Life-long: Depression. Anxiety. Confusion. Resentment. Finger pointing. I spoke against God, as you do because of MY misunderstanding and MY afflictions. Because of MY walk.

    I thought because I simply believed in God he was supposed to change my life. He was supposed to be there for me, when I needed him. I thought he didnt care for me and didn't care if I died. I pleaded to die. Considered suicide for over a decade. I yelled, I cried, I turned away from Him before ever knowing him. If I believed in God how could he want this for me? How could one person handle SO MUCH pain? Why me? Why?

    Guess what;

    God DID want me to die..yeah I said it. The ME who I saw. The ME who I wanted to be. The ME who thought I knew who God was. The ME who thought I was the creator of my life story. The ME who knew it all. The ME who indeed, needed to die.

    God didn't tear ME down. God allowed me TO be tore down. Torn apart. Broken. Physically, mentally and spiritually. God gave me free will to live how I wanted. He gave me the free will..to sin. For the wages of sin are what? DEATH. Not having Complete Faith in God is..sin.

    Where am I going with this;

    Now, at 39 years old God recently called me. Finally I (ME) was ready. The man I was DID DIE. Praise God!! The man I was DID SUFFER UNTIL HIS DEMISE. God didn't kill me..he brought me to HIM. He is showing me WHO I AM. God has begun to saturate my heart(spirit) through the power of His Holy Spirit. I no longer live for ME. My life is in HIS hands. He knows what I need.

    Do you know a bone is stronger after being broken? Do you know that HE knows what is best for us? Are you ready to truly Believe in Him and to live through Faith?

    Do you REALLY believe in Jesus Christ or do you need some magic wand to live the life YOU want for YOURSELF? Believing truly in our Savior is to live in Faith. To live in Faith is to live in his will
  • Lamar on Romans 7
    The key to Romans 7 is in the first verse ."Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?" for I speak to them that know the law . For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.verse 5 when we were in the FLESH . chapter 8 talks about when U are in the Spirit . There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Walking in FLESH is walking in Works LAW . Walking in SPIRIT is walking in FAITH . if U are dead to the flesh and alive to the Spirit in CHRIST JESUS then U can do the things U want to do and not do the things U don't want to do under LAW U are BOUND under SPIRIT U are Free....
  • Jodi on Ephesians 5:26
    I'm feeling stuck. I am going through a lot of trials, I know God is testing me to the fullest, I am trying to remain strong and give my troubles to him, but everything creeps back in. I'm searching for recommendations of readings that may help me. I appreciate the suggestions, thank you in advance and GOD BLESS.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Of question: The vision of Constantine of bringing together Church and State by the Cross, was it of God or man? Did the True Church stay separate? Can we know?

    For Teresa and family, many prayers are with you this very day.
  • 1 Corinthians 6 - in Reply on 1 John 1
    I was referring to this passage.

    1 Corinthians 6. The first part of the chapter refers to Christians going to the law against other Christians.

    Here Paul is preaching to a mixed group I believe: Jews, Gentiles, believers

    All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

    13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

    14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

    15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

    16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

    17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

    18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doth is outside the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

    19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

    20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

    Why do you feel you need to approve or disapprove everything someone says? Did Jesus? He taught patiently, used parables so everyone could identify with what he was saying. Quoted the law and then presented what Grace is.

  • Waxed faint on 2 Samuel 21
    I still can't understand David waxed faint? Is that saying that his cowardice grew considerably?
  • Kags - in Reply on 1 John 1
    Yep, it is unbelief in the shed blood of Jesus that condemns anyone. Grace thru faith is salvation. And you can't add anything else on to it. If you could, then why did Jesus say it was finished on the cross? Salvation was finished when Jesus shed His blood on that cross and died our death. But He arose again on the 3rd day to have victory over death, hell and satan. And we have that same victory thru Jesus, not cause of ourselves.
  • Kags - in Reply on 1 John 1
    So you think that every time we sin ( to look upon another and lust ) you lose your salvation? So how many times does Jesus have to suffer on the cross for you not to lose your salvation? Your faith is what saves you by the grace of God. It isn't baptism or any other work that you can do. It is faith plus nothing.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 4
    I was praying Chris would answer that but he's not here today. Would you please contact that comment? I don't know enough about that history to reply. I'm a street preacher; not a scholar.

    Thank you thank you thank you!
  • Tithing Assembling Together Loving the Church - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 16
    You support the people who preach and teach the Word of God to you. How are you being fed? By whom?

    If it is through tv or radio ministry, then that is who is feeding you.

    I know a lot of you will disagree with that, so don't email me ok. I live amongst many elderly and handicapped people; but they are faithful to "their ministry programs."

    For the rest of us, it is written that we're not to forsake "the assembling together." We gather together to encourage those who are going through trials and need the touch of Jesus through His saints: a kind word, a shoulder hug. In corporate prayer many people are healed. Where 2 or 3 of you are gathered together in My Name; I AM in the midst of you.

    In these times of sheltering we need to get creative on how to reach out to the members. Perhaps home telephone ministry?

    The USA evil churches and the House of Representatives are trying to legislate rules/laws that will close Churches or prevent people to sing in Church. Big Churches can only admit 100 people per meeting. Our freedoms are going away supposedly because of the pandemic. It's being used to shut down the Church. You need to google that and get informed. You have a right as a citizen to challenge that.

    Call your state representatives. Visit ACLJ online, sight petitions against these illegal laws that are being SNEAKED through.

    These are all signs that we are nearing the time when the true believers; Christians, are going to be caught up into the clouds to join Jesus. Praise God!

    Right now we need to mess up what Satan is trying to do through evil, God denying slaves of Satan. We do it for all those who will be left behind to closed churches and closed Christian schools. Pray about it.

    You can always watch Church programs on YouTube. Try Charles Stanley.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Revelation 4
    Mishael,

    You mention the King James Bible as being canonized by the Council of Carthage and I am curious about that. Did you read that someplace? My understanding is that the King James Bible was named after King James I, who lived from 1566 to 1625. The King James Bible was not in existence until the early 1600s. So I was just curious about how it could have been canonized by the Council of Carthage?

    Thanks ahead of time, and thank you so much for the things you share here. Your posts always impress upon me your love for the Lord and true concern for the spiritual welfare of others. Again, thank you!
  • Kathie on Matthew 24:9
    What is the difference between soul and spirit? Sometimes it seems as though the two are treated as the same thing, and yet other passages list body, spirit and soul as three separate things. I'm confused.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 4
    The Council of Carthage in AD 397 determined the Christian New Testament canon(collection of books to be included in the Bible) but the Bible itself was written by over 40 men over a period of 1500 years from the time of Moses around 1400 BC to John the Elder near the end of the first century.

    You should ask CHRIS who is very knowledgeable about how the Bible came to be.

    I use the King James Bible over other translations because this is the one that was canonized by that council.

    I understand that maybe you are referring to what the Torah may say about the names. The scripture I gave you about the Archangel Gabriel's announcement of the name of Jesus, is what is recorded in the Bible. What Bible do you use, may I ask?

    No matter what Bible, or what language, the Name of Jesus is the name, by which a person must be born again. Arguing about whether it's the correct name is not going to help anyone be born again.

    Salvation is an act of agreement that we are all sinful and in need of Salvation. Our sins are put upon The Scapegoat, which is Jesus Christ of Nazareth: and He makes atonement for our sins by His Holy Blood sacrifice.

    FAITH in what Jesus did on the Cross of Calvary for sinful mankind, is what will give you peace and security in His Sacrifice.

    You must be born again. John 3
  • Jesse - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7:2
    Regina,

    If they are teaching against an unmarried couple living together then they are correct in doing so. I have heard of unmarried couples who are living together say "We just live together until we get married, but we do not have sex?" Now that may be true, but how is the outside world going to see it? Sex before marriage is considered fornication. That is to be avoided. Even if an unmarried couple lives together and they are waiting until they are married to have sex, to the outside world, the appearance of fornication is there. The bible teaches that we are not even to give the appearance of evil. So if a pastor is teaching against unmarried couples living together, I would say amen!
  • Naya - in Reply on Revelation 21
    Jesse, so Psalms 146:4 Which explains in the very day that we die, all of our thoughts perish indicates that we're in an unconscious state after death. I've given other scriptures which explain what happens at death, but okay. I'm not going to debate about it. We're all entitled to our beliefs. I'm not upset at your disagreement.

    And about the Rich man and Lazarus, if you read through that chapter and really see if for what it is, it is clear that "that" even takes place in the future. That has not happened yet. That rich man was in the Lake of Fire, which we all know hasn't even been created yet. No one is currently burning in the lake of fire. The Lake of Fire will be in Jerusalem, just like the Kingdom of God will be in Jerusalem. A gulf will be fixed between the two places.

    Abraham is still dead/asleep, has not been resurrected yet. So how could the rich man have seen Abraham? That story takes place after the Lord returns and sets up his kingdom on earth.

    The Lord will return & raise every human from death, great and small at his Coming, either in the first resurrection or 2nd, So how can any human be awake now?

    But again, I understand your position. I will not go further into it.

    Jesus finished his ministry on earth as it pertains to fulfilling what was testified about him in the Old Testament. All of that is the first half of his ministry and yes, he did complete that.

    Everything the prophets testified about concerning Jesus' coming was fulfilled and completed.

    The last 3 1/2 years "or" days in the week talked about in Daniel will be the 2nd half of his ministry when he returns and teaches in the wilderness.

    By the way, I am NOT a Jehovah's witness at all and not even close. Not saying that you called me one. But I wanted that to be clear. I do not agree with their teachings, like at all.

    I'm of no denomination. I just study the bible as it is written.

    No need to reply. We've had a nice chat.

    Nice talking to you too.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Dennis,

    Are you alluding to Matthew 19:24 where Jesus says "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God?" I have heard of people mentioning such a gate and saying that this was the gate Jesus was referring to in Matthew 19:24.

    This was a common proverb in Jesus' day. It originated in Palestine. And it originated with not a camel, but an elephant, that it is easier for an elephant to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into heaven. By the time it gets to Jerusalem it changed to a camel, and it expresses impossibility.

    Some people have said over the years, and I used to believe this also, that the eye of a needle is the gate into the city of Jerusalem. And in the evening time when the large gates close, they keep this little tiny gate open, and it is called the eye of the needle. So that if you bring your camel in, you got to unload him and everything, and you got to push him through, and stuff him through this little hole if you want to get in.

    Well, the problem was that as I did some historical research on this, and those gates did not exist at the time of Jesus, not for another 60 years after. So that is not what it is implying here. In fact, Matthew's word is actually a sewing needle. Luke, in his account, used a physician's needle. And you can imagine why with Luke being a physician.

    And that is literally what it means. The proverb is meant to express impossibility. If this is not what you are referring to, please disregard.
  • Regina Reed on 1 Corinthians 7:2
    Why do some preachers teach on( shacking) living together . When the couple do decide to marry they marry for this reason the fear of going to hell and they end up in this terrible relationship that either of them want to be in.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    2 Corinthians 6:14-18 - Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

    2 Timothy 3:5 - Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    Deuteronomy 7:3-4 - Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

    2 Thessalonians 3:6 - Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

    Ephesians 5:11 - And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

    3 John 1:11 - Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.

    1 Corinthians 7:1-40 - Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

    Don't think older people in the Lord do not understand the rush of young love.

    Myself... I wish someone had told me it's not going to work out so long as the other is unsaved. Take her to church with you. You Pray for her to receive Jesus.

    God created sex. He also performed the first marriage. You are not Adam and Eve.

    You may have met the wrong woman. And the right one is praying for God to bring you to her.

    You may hate me for this: but Satan can tempt us with the wrong choice. It takes huge faith to trust in God in these matters.

    You should be praying for God to prepare her to receive salvation. Be meek and accept Gods leading and confirmation.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Isaiah 13:10
    Greg,

    No problem with the miscommunication. As I stated, when I first read where you said Kalos = child, I knew you had to accidentally put that there. I'm sure you already knew Kalos was not the word for child, even though a child can be Kalos (Good), sometimes!

    I agree with the King James that Judas "repented himself" but it was not the same repentance required for salvation. The word repent as was used for Judas was not the same word for repent in places where the bible says "Repent and be baptized." This word repent (Metanoeo) is true repentance and is the word that's used every time it is associated with salvation. So Judas repenting himself meant that he was only sorry for his actions.

    We don't get that from our English bibles. I think that's where we run into problems sometimes with our English texts. We see a word in English and we automatically attach our English understanding to not knowing the Greek uses a word that means something different than what we understand in English.

    I agree fully with the persecution issue. Jesus said we can expect that. But just like Paul, we should count it all joy when we are being persecuted. That's sounds odd, but the way I see it, they are not persecuting me, they are persecuting Christ who lives in me. That's how I know I can count it as joy. And that's why Jesus said, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?" Saul was persecuting Christians but Jesus said why are you persecuting me?

    And I understand the being zealous part. It never worked too well for me either. I've come to a point in my walk with the Lord where I just sit back and go along for the ride and whatever path He puts me on. I love sailboats (Pictures, models, you name it). They remind me of a time when I was "on fire" as they say, and my motor was running non-stop. But I've since turned off the motor, hoisted up the sail, and let the wind (God's Spirit) take me wherever He might take me.

    Anyways,

    I've also enjoyed talking with you. God Bless!!!
