  • BObby Key on Joel 2:25
    Is the Church to involve in the political arena?
  • Bob Grove on Psalms 51:12
    Read a lot of verses starting at Genesis 1 26 , Genesis 3 v 22 , John 5v7 was the closest but certainly not specific enough to take seriously.

    John 10.30 , Malachi 3 v 16, 17 , acts , let's face reality there is not a single verse in All scriptures that even Mention the trinity , in context for a God head namely The father , Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit!

    God never changes , do you understand how that could be ?

    Sorry but I don't believe in Christian evolution.
  • Sheila W on Daniel 10
    Is this chapter about the endtimes or something that has already happened in history of the Israelites?
  • Rob - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    Thanks for those inspiring words friend. However, I'm looking to find the answer to why the story of Noah, Creation and Jesus birth have extremely close parallels of others, Egyptian,Sumerian, Gilgamesh earlier tales found on ancient tablets/ Rosetta stone, etc.

    I'm looking to debunk these tales specifically, and not to sound condescending but this is highly important that I get the facts over my now faith... can you help me here?
  • GOING DEEPER IN JESUS - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    In John 16, Nicodemus asked Jesus the same question.

    An authentic born again experience, means receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

    John 16 ,teaches what all that entails: what the Holy Spirits Ministry is, towards New Believers. He protects the new birth and teaches it about Jesus. You can go as deeply, as you desire the sincere milk of Gods Word (the Holy Bible). We're encouraged to desire the Meat of scripture.

    A lot of Christians just want the basic fire insurance. Enough to keep them out of hell.

    A true believer wants the Whole Life of Jesus insurance policy with all the bells and whistles. They jump in feet first, and get Jesus all over them: and want more and more. They follow Jesus and read His Word every day of their lives. They tell others about Jesus! They are excited.

    They're "all in". None of that one foot in the worldly world, and the other foot on Jesus.

    There was a great song called, Love God, Hate Sin. If we don't sink our little baby Christian roots deep into Jesus, first big wind of persecution will blow you away.

    Go look at That Godhead post I just posted. Why wouldn't you want to worship, adore and serve, those three persons who created all we see and know about? Romans 1

    If you don't read your Bible with the Holy Spirit at your elbow... the Bible is just a book that doesn't speak back to you.

    So, how deep do you want to go?

  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:7
    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    Praise God we have been washed clean by the precious blood of Jesus and are now totally sanctified, justified & redeemed because of the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 1:29-30 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. That is what Christ has done for us, in us and who we are in Jesus Christ. What Glorious Salvation.
  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:16
    What does 1 Corinthians 6:18 mean?

    In the Greco-Roman, idol-worshiping culture of Paul's day, sex of all kinds had been normalized for nearly everyone. That included prostitution, adultery, pedophilia, homosexuality, and so forth. Growing up in this environment, it's not surprising to think some of the Christians in Corinth had trouble seeing sex outside of marriage as a big deal. Paul has spent this chapter showing why avoiding sexual immorality is so essential for believers.

    Now he gives them a strategy for dealing with it: run. He tells them to flee from sexual immorality. Run away like you are escaping from something that might harm you, because it will. Even if the culture despises you for it, it's better to escape from sexual sin than to be conquered by it (Genesis 39:7-12).

    Paul shows that sexual immorality is different from other kinds of sin because it's a form of self-harm. We might commit other sins with our bodies, but sexual immorality unites us sinfully with another person. This happens on a deeply physical and spiritual level. We will experience the natural consequences of that sin at that deep level, as well.

    It's important to note that Paul did not write that sexual immorality is the worst of all sins, as we sometimes conclude. Instead, he is combatting the casual attitude toward sexual sin carried by some Christians in hyper-sexualized cultures. In addition to hurting others, sexual immorality contributes to our own deep pain. It's no more or less a sin than any other, but human cultures tend to treat it more casually than other errors. Galatians 6:7-16 King James Version (KJV) 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Now please know that I believe that every sin is forgiven by God through Jesus Christ & his atoning death on the cross. I John 1:9 KJV
  • Adam - in Reply on Ecclesiasticus 8:19
    Hi Earl, looks like you were viewing that page which is why it says 'on' in your comment. So, maybe you answered your own question?
  • Earl Jackson on Ecclesiasticus 8:19
    How come King Janes bible dont have ecclesiastcus?
  • FELTON R WILSON on Hebrews 10
    Of the books of Matthew,Mark,Luke or John did any of them hear Jesus preach?
  • Bob Grove on Jude 1:14
    Jude verse 3 plainly states that the FAITH was once delivered unto the NT saints , this is the Doctrine of Christ and of the Apostles.

    Nothing more is needed .

    2 Timothy 3 . 16 Confirms this .

    My question is where is the Trinity doctrine found in the bible ?

    This is the actual teaching and importance to follow the teaching .

    Who said it in the Bible .

    Yes we know that Jesus is one with the father . As he said he came from God , the Son of God come in the flesh . and never sinned as a man . He was the first of His kind , . That's not my question.

    Thanks I will wait .
  • Patty Voight on Hebrews 10
    John14:27 mean
  • Rob Dorsey on Habakkuk 2
    How can I a christain know beyond any doubt the bible is nonfiction?
  • Rob Dorsey on Habakkuk 2
    Is the tale/ stories of Creation, Noah and others copied from those of earlier civilizations?
  • Part 3 NEW MOVE OF GOD - in Reply on Mark 2
    Praise and worship are key in Old Testament wars. Read over in Chronicles about King David. That's how we do it. The Holy Spirit is ready to bestow His gifts, for ministry. You have to pray, ask, And receive. Then study what that gift is for. Again.. read your Bible. Get a Strongs Concordance. It's faster.

    This is living Church outside the walls guys; gals. Our government is going to try to distract us by removing our statues (to demoralize us.) They are going to persecute the church for being resistant to gay agendas, abortion agendas, racial agendas, co-Ed school agendas: they have all these strategies to divide us and keep us in little boxes.

    These days are truly the last days. Our target is to pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send Workers into that Harvest, to COMPEL the unsaved to come to Jesus now. Before it's to late. This door of opportunity will be closed by the Rapture (caught up into the clouds). Don't get hung up on rapture not being a Bible word.

    1 Thessalonians 4:17 Is the correct name to Google. 2 Peter 3:12, BE LOOKING FOR JESUS. Stop arguing about this, ok?

    If you aren't looking up for Jesus, then you my friend are a Sadducee. They didn't believe in the Resurrection so they are "sad you see"... awaiting hell.

    Read the Gospels and memorize how Jesus taught his disciples. Google the stories of people that are evangelizing in beautiful orderly crowds; witnessing to people they meet.

    Be encouraged. You are truly seeing God do something new. If you don't sense that trumpet call in your spirit? Maybe turn off the tv and really start seeking Jesus's direction for you. If your mind feels kinda cloudy when you read the Bible, it may be hindering and harassing demons spirits. Bind them and cast them into outer darkness, in Jesus name. Keep it up till they give up and move on to something easier.

    We win! Jesus is with us. He will protect us with angelic protection. Don't focus on anything other than JESUS.

  • EMMANUE Y JERRY on Psalms 51:12
    When you are denied your expected grade in school for instance instead of credit you were given pass is it right for you to add the grade up using computer since you can defend it?
  • Part Two NEW MOVE OF GOD - in Reply on Mark 2
    Everyone read up on Jesus's last week before the Cross. That's where we are.

    The "Religious" scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, and leftover Zealots were intent on wiping out Jesus's teachings, he Himself, and protecting "their" fine Temple with all its wealth and artifacts, etc. intolerant of anything Jesus said about it being torn down. We're the same spirit. We argue continually about deep doctrinal issues that don't tell others a reason to be born again and follow Jesus.

    We are looking at a massive move into APOSTASY at this very moment. People need to be born again and Delivered from demons that hold them back from understanding how to live born again until Jesus returns! Does anyone in here know how to sniff out demon Fruits and cast them out in Jesus name and send them into outer darkness? Ephesians 6. Demons are invisible; only their fruits give them up.

    Have you ever gone to church and sat in on a Deliverance Service? Where people pray for the oppressed of demons, to be set gloriously free??

    There's MAINTENANCE to be taught on how to keep yourself free from demonic reappearances. If they don't furnish the fleshly body that Houses the spiritual man inside, demons will try to get their old house back. People have to be so full of Bible that no demon will stick a claw back into that place. Maintain! Every time a swear word flies out of your mouth or you watch sensual themes on tv, that's a demon trying to reclaim you! Turn it off and read your Bible.

    If you want to know what Satan's next strategy is against the Body of Christ, turn on the news!!

    Where's the Watchmen? Where's the Gap Standers? The intercessor prayer teams? People with the gift of prophesy from the Holy Spirit who is our captain on earth? Where are those with the gift of a Word of Wisdom? We need all of the Holy Spirits gifts working together right now in the Body of Christ Jesus. We need our Praise and Worship teams in their Places!

  • Part One NEW MOVE OF GOD - in Reply on Mark 2
    It helps me to hear you say this. I miss Billy too. I still encourage myself on his sermons on youtube. Friday I saw a story on the news; how the young Christians in Portland were taking evangelism out into the streets. They see that Jesus is the answer for the violence and frustration.

    They're not protesting. They're lifting up Jesus. We have to intercede for them. Jesus is doing something new.

    I would love to see that happening in here too. Pastors need to see the real hunger for living the Church out in the streets.

    They have questions that require useful answers. Not miles upon miles of church history. Not Splitting hairs on which way is the right way, the right Bible, the right spin on doctrine. They are crying out to just know the real Jesus and what he did and taught for 3 years!!

    This is the final push. We're living the last days of Jesus's life on earth.

    Our government=the Pharisees and Sadducees are closing our churches, forbidding us to sing; planning to take away our tax exempt status away. Churches in Europe are being Closed and sold off to become restaurants or play lands.

    I thought it was evil exploding. I cried out, why is this happening?!? And then, maybe it was a light....God is in on this. He's closing our hideaways and refuges of wood and stone. We will see something new every day! Satan is taking it to the streets; and God is urging us to do also but to do it with praise, worship, witnessing His Love right on a public sidewalk. Lifting up Jesus. I do not think we need to go near to what the rioting, burning, vandalizing crowds are doing!!

    I see this move of the Lord beginning in the highways and byways, smaller towns, and moving ever closer to the cities that are taken over by 'zealots' who are using BLM's banner to perpetuate their real agendas. Destruction, Hatred and chaos ARE ALWAYS THE FRUIT OF SATAN.

    We cannot be a part of that!! Lift up Jesus and He will draw people to Himself. This is like Jericho sorta.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 10:14
    Yes, God could have still forgiven us without sending His Son to die for us, but then God wouldn't have been the God that we know from the Bible. Why is that?

    You know the various attributes of God: He is Holy, Merciful, Gracious, Long suffering, Just, to name a few. Because He is a Just God & requires obedience, any breaking of His Laws, however small, requires a penalty. Just like when we over speed on the road & get pulled over. We can give all the excuses to the officer, but he has to still issue a ticket & we have to pay the fine according to the laws' requirements. God cannot give man a law & then overlook any breaking of it - if so, He wouldn't be a Just Judge. So if we break God's Law, we have to suffer a penalty. And because God is Holy & Just, He can & should expect our total obedience. But can we be totally obedient?

    But the Bible tells us that "all have sinned & fallen short of God's Glory (or, we haven't met God's requirements): Romans 3:23. And we know this for a fact - not one of us is without sin. So, the payment of sin is death: Romans 6:23a "For the wages of sin is death". We rightly deserve His punishment of death = eternal separation from God because we have wronged God & despised Him. So in reality, when we die we should all go to Hell, to our deserved punishment for violating God's Holy demands.

    But God's Love for us constrained Him not to do this, but how could we pay for sin's penalty? All religions teach that we must try hard to do good & please God by our lives to escape His Judgement - but that doesn't work because we still sin & so how can something dirty (a sinner) make itself clean (sinless)? You need something pure to satisfy God's demands & we have nothing to offer.

    Jesus steps in: "I will give my life to take UPON ME the penalty of man's sins" John 10:15, Galatians 3:13. So Jesus, the Pure, Holy One of God, willingly became our substitute to give up His Life so we don't have to lose ours to the Devil: but only if we put our trust in Him.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 119
    Annie - that is so true. Same edomite problem with many leaders in so called churches or they are sold out to them. I hate easter / xmass and what not so I am not of that crowd. One thing that bothers me about messianics is few will stand against the Talmud. I have read some of it in book form in the reference section of the library. I know what it says.

    I had some claiming to be messianic deny the talmud exists. I know better. The kabbalah / Zohar is even worse. King Herod was an edomite per Jewish historian Josephus and yet he, Herod, would claim to be a "Jew" I am sure as he was involved in running the temple in the days of Christ. Yes the edomites give the true Jews and few true christians a bad name.

    I am sure they planted xmass to drive away true jews away from churches. I have great respect for the Torah / Tanach believing Jews and know the Israeli state treats them poorly. I consider them as lost sheep. The ADL says the Vatican supports the ADL. When you came to Christ, did the family have a funeral? Following the way is oftentimes a lonely road. Stay close to the Lord things are getting bad.

    Could not GOD have forgiven us of our sins without JESUS CHRIST being made human and dying?
  • Carleton - in Reply on Deuteronomy 30:19
    Good evening Chris and all. Likely more can be found in The Martyrs Mirror by Thieleman J. van Braght, however the particular confessions of faith that two of which I have written on this website, are part of 18 articles drawn up at Dortecht Holland in 1632, the confession says at a certain peace convention on April 21. More information can be found at Gospel Publishers in Moundridge, Kansas. I, myself am a baptized member of the Church of God in Christ Mennonite with no Mennonite background on my blood side. After being born again by faith and repentance and later baptized I then met my future wife whose ancestors were likely from some of the Churches that signed this particular confession.

    Our times right now are testing every Christian, myself included.

    God Bless our sharing and that He will increase our fervent love towards one another.

    Have we met Chris?

  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 30:19
    Thanks Carleton. An excellent & pertinent article on a Christian's response to an enemy's attacks. You mentioned "brethren 389 years ago": can you clarify? Thanks.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Mark 4
    Jesus uses these words to describe the nature of unbelief and our separation from Him because of our original sin. We really are void when it comes to spiritual knowledge, or as to the things around us? Nature is a prime example!
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Timothy 3:2
    Tina, God will always have a remnant that will follow Him, strive to be holy & be faithful to Him even unto death. Luke 9:23, 14:27, 1 Corinthians 1:18. These are those who take up their cross daily & have their eyes & hearts constantly focused on their Saviour. We see all that's happening in the world with sadness & horror, but we know that the work of Satan has been going on since Eden & has been increasing ever since. I sometimes wonder what state the world would be in had Christ not come & the Gospel not gone out into all the world. Of course, had that happened, God would probably have closed the curtains of this corrupted creation as it was only the coming of our Lord at the appointed time that spared the Arm of the Lord from destroying the world. His mercies to us were great, without which we would indeed be consumed.

    Yet, even though we are quick to accuse people for their ungodliness, immorality & rampant sin, we see a lot of contributing factors, to which Satan has a foothold. A baby is born in innocence, with a sin nature, but with no knowledge of error. Bad parenting, atheistic misguided governments & disregard to the Holy Scriptures have majorly contributed to our grievous immorality. Not that we would have been freed from the things that you speak of, but godliness would have been the order of the day, clear moral directives & boundaries set & crimes against God & society would be dealt with correctly. All this of course, will never happen as Satan has full control of the minds & lives of the majority.

    Yet the Gospel of Jesus has gone out & many lives have been saved & turned towards holy living, yet I have this nagging thought, was the Gospel only meant to be the means for a personal life turnaround, or to also strongly influence society with the requirements of God? Some have attempted to do so, but as a whole, we have failed as Christians. We have failed to stand for Truth & Righteousness & thus have to bear some responsibility for our lot.
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on Mark 2
    The first words to simon and Andrew were to follow me and I will make you fishers of men! Fishermen of men! This is the message that indeed, as you say is not being spoken. Christ is the way . Why are repeating Christs words so difficult? Why is the church not inviting people to be baptised and saved, no more alter calls. Not unlike Pastor Billy Graham! Baptism should be like when John Baptised Jesus in the Jordan river. People should be called like never before! Pastors ,deacons, elders, young and old should be shouting out the name of Jesus! Jesus always said, never be afraid! Preach the gospel, in and out of season, always! The marriage is ready! call everyone from the hi ways and byways. Indeed his kingdom is at hand,Jesus wants all men to be saved. The marriage is ready! The church today is stuck! Stuck with their idea that perhaps there is another way of salvation, a salvation based on works! Perhaps it thinks its vial doesn't need to be full, that it can share its oil with another mans idea, and still be ready when Christ arrives? Based on an idea that there is something else that needs to be done! We need to exalt Christ, our redeemer from sin and eternal death. There is salvation in none other ,but the blood of Jesus Christ!
  • Carleton on Deuteronomy 30:19
    This is one article of my faith too, from brethren 389 years ago last spring. Is there really anything new under the son?


    "Of Revenge"

    As regards revenge, that is to oppose an enemy with the sword, we believe & confess that the Lord Christ has forbidden & set aside to His disciples & followers all revenge & retaliation, & commanded them to render to no one evil for evil or cursing for cursing, but to put the sword into the sheath, or as the prophets have predicted, to beat the swords into ploughshares.

    From this we understand that, according to His example, we must not inflict pain, harm, or sorrow upon anyone, but seek the highest welfare & salvation of all men, & even if necessity requires it, flee for the Lord's sake from one city or country into another, & suffer the spoiling of our goods; that we must not harm anyone, & when we are smitten, rather turn the other cheek than to take revenge or retaliate.

    And moreover, that we must pray for our enemies, feed and refresh them whenever they are hungry or thirsty, & thus convince them by well doing, & overcome all ignorance.

    Finally, that we must do good and commend ourselves to every man's conscience; & according to the law of Christ, do unto others that which we would have others do unto us.
  • Mishael on Acts 15:20
    AntiChrist Scriptures

    1 John 2:18

    Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

    1 John 2:22

    Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    1 John 4:3

    And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

    2 John 1:7

    For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a Deceiver and an antichrist.
  • Betty Mitchell on 1 Thessalonians 4:16
    If you believed in christ,but never go to repent because of a sudden death( accident), how does God forgive us for sin?
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 20
    Probably you've heard that Jesus is God incarnate, i.e. God come in the flesh. We believe in the one God, the Creator of all things, the Holy One of Israel. Beside Him there is no other god. God in His Eternal Existence reveals Himself to man as the Word of God & the Spirit of God. And this God in His Fullness (i.e. His Deity) we read in 1 John 5:7: "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

    In Galatians 4:4, 5: "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons." So, God Himself by His Word came to His people. You remember how God had given his words to Israel by the mouth of the prophets?

    Those days have now finished for God did something new: (Hebrews 1:1-3), "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 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".

    God, the Word, was made man & He would be called Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14) & "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23). "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21).

    Not only did God appoint His Son (His Word in the Flesh) to bring His Message, but also to give His Life for our sins. As Thomas finally exclaimed, "My Lord and my God" & he wasn't rebuked by Jesus.
