  • A disciple on Romans 10
    Nathan; Show me your faith without works! "And every one that hear these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.. AND IT FELL: and GREAT WAS ITS FALL!" "..and the dead were JUDGED out of those things which were written in the books, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS." The devils also believe and shudder; are they going to be saved?
  • Eutychus a saint on Galatians 2
    vs1.When Paul, along with Titus, Barnabas (and Luke?) went to Jerusalem about the Jew/Gentile/Church question...the Jews withstood Paul. And while the question was settled for all time, at that time, it continued to haunt the church for many years, even leading to Paul's death. And later, in Revelation chapters 2:9, and 3:9, we see the problem still exists. And even to this day, it remains.
  • Jay de Leon M on John 14
    John 14 has always been a powerful shield and comfort all the days of my life ... “Let not your heart be troubled ...” and why should I worry, or be afraid? When I am down and out, I know I will rise and walk with Him who loves me. Even when there are those who may cast me out, I know I am never lost for Jesus has already prepared a home for me “in my Father’s house.” I can never despair, for he
  • Brian on Genesis 1
    can anyone tell me what day did sin enter into the world and how?
  • Eutychus on Colossians 4
    Archippus is admonished to fulfil the ministry he has been given by the Lord.vs17. Jesus says to us, "For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, AND TO EVERY MAN HIS WORK." Mark 13:34. To every man his work. Are we fulfilling the 'work' we've been given by the Lord? To every one, his work...And ladies, I believe you are included too.
  • Eutychus on Colossians 4
    Verse has been said, that in Jesus' time, Rome's population was 50% slaves. Paul admonishes both master and slave several times in his letters. But nowhere does Paul advocate creating a political party, or charitable organization, to help free the slaves. Could it be, there is that on earth, more important than slavery or its abolition? Could it be that Jesus is Master of both?
  • Eutychus on Philippians 1
    "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21.

    Really? To live isn't watching the widescreen god? To live isn't playing sports? It isn't paying total attention to "devices". To live isn't to spend one's time in an all out drive to be entertained, even when in church?

    If all that is living, then you bet! that dying in Jesus is a gain unsurpassed on this very earth...
  • A disciple on Mark 7
    Eutychus (cont.); We have to be very careful about what we say, because the things that come from our hearts and innermost thoughts either justify us or condemn us. We have to think about what we say, and WHY we say it. If a man is still wrestling with selfishness and sinning like it was a serious conflict in him or as you call it a rivalry; where is the evidence of grace? Where is the repentance?
  • A disciple on Mark 7
    Eutychus; I'm glad you bring up these things; for it is a diabolical technique used by the devil through MANY supposed well meaning Pastors and Teachers these days. But let's examine just exactly it is that you're suggesting. What "rivalry" between the LORD God and the devil? And what "rivalry" for the truly saved and converted Believer who wishes to live with a good conscience toward God and man?
  • A disciple on Mark 10
    Having never come from a rich family, or any kind of upbringing that would push me to pursue riches; I've always seen through it to a great has no pull with me! Even putting that type of thing on a level of "worldliness in general" doesn't it make you feel like you're drying up inside and your heart dead to the Lord and spiritual things and holiness and FAITH? I'd avoid those thoughts!
  • Eutychus on Galatians 6
    Ask your class to read this chapter with you, aloud. Then ask them if they noted an apparent (!) contradiction in the text? They won't see it, or take note of it. You won't either, unless you read below...

    But look at verses 2 and 5. This is startling evidence that it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal to us, the words we read in the Bible, the WORD of God. We read it, but too often don't see it.
  • Susan on Proverbs 23
    "Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Consider if you strive all your life to make money and never have time for your kids and family, they will suffer and so will you. Because all the money in the world can not make up for time and love.
  • Ray on Leviticus 18
    Hi Everyone, Recently this year, I had a question relating to the sins of nakedness and finally found this chapter online. My reading of the scriptures about not uncovering my kin's nakedness was remembered, but not anything pertaining my neighbors.

    I would like to know, 'Is nudity in videos considered a physical act of uncovering someone'? - God only states a physical act of uncovering others...
  • Pete Weimer on Acts 19
    What current Asian countries are referred to as Asia in verse 22?
  • Eutychus on Mark 10
    Vs 24, Jesus said, "Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!"

    Tell me...can one HAVE riches, and yet not TRUST in riches? How hard a thing that would seem to accomplish!
  • Eutychus on Mark 7
    Verses 7-15...the age old rivalry between "Commandment and Convenience". It is inconvenient, therefore, we "let it slide". Of course, the question is...Don't that suit God? Does letting it slide please God? Do we do things after God's way, or in a way we hope, we pray, we think, is God's way, for sake of convenience.
  • Eutychus2018 on Mark 3
    Do you find it odd, that in vs 9, Jesus asks the disciples to put him into a small ship? Yet there is nothing recorded as to what he said from that ship. And proceeded thereafter to go up into a mountain.

    In Chapter 4, vs 1, once again, he is placed into a boat, and preached what I call the "Sermon on the Sea"...

    I'm just making note of the peculiarity...mayhap you would know the reason for it.
  • A disciple on Exodus 5
    "And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all." "The mills of God grind slow but exceedingly fine." We have to learn how to wait for God's purposes to come to full fruition.
  • Eutychus on Matthew 27
    "Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children." verse 25. The people pronounced a breath-taking curse upon themselves.

    And were reminded of it later, very strongly...

    "Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us." Acts 5:28.
  • Mild Bill,saved by grace on Psalms 21
    Preventest,as it is used in this and other scriptures,means to go before.The story,the unfolding of events,the scriptures reveal to us that believe that God wins and his enemies lose."despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"Romans 2:4 While there is time,believe on the Lord Jesus and be saved.
  • Alfredo gallegos on Ephesians 1
  • A disciple on Matthew 24
    "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many." Matthew 24:5 When the disciples asked the Lord, What will be the sign of your coming? His response was simple and direct Don't be naive! Stay Awake! Don't let yourselves be foolishly misled by anyone and everyone who says, I'm a Christian! After that He goes on to describe the results of a world filled with impostors and hypocrites, ignorant and misguided, name only Christians. It will be just like it was in the days before the cataclysm: apostasy, worldliness, selfishness, consciences seared with a hot iron and scarred without feeling NO MORE HAVING ANY CARE TO KNOW THE TRUTH, QUIT SINNING, OR RECEIVE CORRECTION...eating and drinking and carrying on like the world will just go on for ever and no God influencing their lives! It will be the faithfulness and obedience of the true Elect that will provoke the wicked and the hypocrites to persecute us. Because of all these things, God will see no reason for letting the world continue and He will come!
  • A disciple on Luke 6
    "And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this,.." He that searches the hearts and the innermost thoughts and intents knows how He made us; and He debates with those who have His Word but don't understand it. God sent His Prophets, and Messengers to bring men His Word, with the expectation of understanding and obedience. How then does someone read or hear and not understand?
  • A disciple
    Servant (cont.); If we say that it was the Law of Moses or the Prophets that is the part that makes us unfit and useless before God; don't we by doing so speak against His Word, which He said, "If a man do he shall live, and if he do not he is cursed?" thus emboldening the simple to despise the Word of God! But it is OUR NATURE, CHARACTER and WORKS that makes us stand or fall before His Presence.
  • A disciple on Luke 4
    What is it about Jesus being the Son of God, that is such a thorn in the eyes of the wicked? The main thing the devil can't leave alone, and the thing that he perversely wants to bow down to him, is the fact that Jesus is the Son of God. The unclean spirits in people know that He is the Son of God, and it makes them cry out in terror. Meanwhile it is men that don't want to understand or believe.
  • BENWA ILUNGA on Psalms 95
    While it is said , " if you Will hear His voice , do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion...." Therefore I need my knees down and worship Him....! What about you ?
  • Maggie Short on Matthew 25
    How do I know if I'm being a good and faithful enough? I try to be and want to be, but I can't be sure that I am. It's frightening.
  • A disciple on Isaiah 48
    Steve Morrow; Great Scriptures! But do you know who the LORD was referring to? He was speaking to the disobedient and the defiantly hateful and hostile ones; NOT to His beloved Elect who seek to please Him with every thought word and deed, and to walk in truth and holiness before Him IN JESUS' NAME! Seeking to be holy and obedient, and preaching to others to do the same, is not of the devil!
  • Varoojan on Ephesians 5
    Regarding Epesians 5:4

    It is written: Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

    I'm concerned. I'm unemployed and trying to make money selling a full-length animated comedy screenplay.

    My question is, would I be in contrary to God's will or word writing a comedy? (the phrase nor jesting appears in verse 5:4) Please help.
  • Billy Joe Grace on Matthew 2
    Dear Mr. Stienburg.
    I honestly don't mind dissenting views, in fact, I love discussion. Especially spirited discussion, but I must ask you, why do you argue for an unprovable position amongst those with whom you disagree? Are you bored? Do you have a smidgen of faith you are ashamed of? You knew that you would be disagreed with when posting, so why did you?
