  • George Hartwell on Genesis 4
    In response to Word 's comment on 8 14 2014, where in Genesis does it say that God covered the Earth with people on 6th day? Weren 't just Adam and Eve created then? I do agree that it does seem strange that Cain was able to find himself a wife when Eve was the only woman who existed at that point. Perhaps the writer of this myth just didn 't think it through properly.
  • Tim George on Genesis 37:13
    And Israel said unto Joseph do not thy brothers feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, "Hear am I " Joseph submits to his father 's will to go to his brothers, who hated him, to see how they were feeding the flock. We in ministry are partners together in the gospel, and we should be helpers with our fellow brothers in Christ. We are not to be competitors, but helpers in the ministry, for we serve the Lord Jesus Christ. By this shall all men know that we are His disciples, by the love that we have one for the other. Jesus said a new commandment give I unto you, that you love one another, as I have loved you. Love in spite of the way others treat you, and the Lord will reward you.
  • Bruce on Deuteronomy 6:4
    One Lord ,One Faith ,One Baptism If God , Jesus and the Holy Spirit are not the same wouldn 't you need faith for each one of them?
  • Amilcar Portillo on Matthew 24:22
    Who are the "elected "? If those are the Jews, I may as well pack up my bags and move to the other side since I got nothing to loose.

  • Omary Minzi on Revelation 7
    Thanks all for your nice contribution with regard to Rev 7 14 and its connection with the rapture. Mathew 24 20 22. If you also read ISAIAH 26 20 2. It becomes clear that, the tribulation will start before the rapture then our Loard Jesus will come to pick those who received him as their Savior. However, there is another school of thought that the church shall not witness tribulation. The church must have left before this bad time. Kindly educate us with regard to this timing? Thanks and Godbbless you all in advance
  • Mark on Genesis 3
    I have questions, Did the serpent know good and evil? Where did the serpent come from? Is the serpent the devil kicked out of heaven? Do the angels know good and evil? Could the "us " be referring to the heavenly host collectively as a whole, such as God and his angels and the Spirit of God that moved upon the face of the waters?
  • Grant on Hebrews 1
    This is to rev Autrey, In the original Greek scriptures it reads you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness therefore Jehovah, your God, set you above your companions meaning Jesue was exsulted higher than angels anointing him with the oil of joy or by making him Christ. Jesus never calls himself God. God knew he was his son. The angels new he was the son. The demons know he was the son of the most high. When Jesus asked his disciples "who do you think I am? ", even Peter said "you are the son of God. Trinitarians, get over it!
  • Stan uwakwe on Ezekiel 36:27
    Does it mean that without the spiri of God no one could be able to live up to the standard of God?
  • Omary Minzi on Revelation 7:14
    Can someone help me if the church will witness the tribulation before the rapture according to Rev 7 14? If yes for how many years and will it be affected as well? Minzi from Tanzania
  • Charles on Philippians 4
    To Cleta re verses 11 to 13. It means to just live your day that the Lord has given you. Do not worry about the cares of this world in your life.By doing so,and by reading your Bible which increases your faith and by private prayer on a DAILY basis, the above verses will become a living reality for you. And then, with time you will have that simplicity in Jesus Christ, that beautiful thing.For your trust in Him will overcome the fears that paralyze us and remove our peace.See ? Daily prayer and some Bible time ensures this. about 10 minutes per day out of 24 hours .So few Christians can do this.Nothing else required.
  • Eaglesrock on Romans 14
    Romans 14 17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. We are taught to pray thy Kingdom come. What is the Kingdom of God? Righteous, Peace, and Joy in the Holy Ghost. Its the peace of God My peace I give unto you not as the world gives. The Joy of the Lord which is my strength. I have that peace and that joy. The world didn 't give it to me and the world cant take it away.
  • Michael on Psalms 18:2
    To understand this verse, you need to understand why David said it. He had just overcome his enemies and Saul, the jealous king, and he was so happy that he broke forth with this entire Psalm 18. It is a song of victory over one 's obstacles. These all are military terms, rock, fortress, deliverer, salvation, horn, high tower, buckler shield , strength but the enemy is figuratively a spiritual one satan and David is referring mostly to a physical enemy. He has not gotten to the spiritual enemy yet which caused him to fall later in his life. Enjoy this entire Psalm 18 whenever you have victory in your life over the enemy, especially the continued fight against satan, who by the way is out of the box for a short time here in the last days Revelations, Chapter 22...??
  • Sylvia from the philippines on Matthew 16:26
    Our elder once shared to me about this verse in Matthew 16. wht stuck in my mind is the story of one of the riches and famous man on earth. he succumb to a lingering illness his money was not able to help cure him. on his dying bed, he requested his family to lay him on a special coffin with holes on both upper sides where both his arms could be extended out. He wished that all his famous and rich friends be invited on his wake and them be showed how he died, and them to look and remeber his outstrectched arms and open hands, expressing and warning them this lesson "WHEN WE ALL DIE, WE WILL ALL BE EMPTY HANDED, NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE WORK HARD TO GAIN THE WORLD " so now, let us ask our very own self, what are we busy about? is it simply for our gain or we are busy not just for our gain but for others as well. remember, God says, you save your soul by saving others FIRST... "GOD LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT SHALL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE "
  • Mukwevho ndivhuwo on Malachi 4
    Malachi chapter 4 what does thi statement implies 'to turn the heart of children to fathers anda the heart of fathers to children '?
  • Darren on James 5:16
    Well technically the word "faults " is not the same as "sin " in the original greek, however it is referring to the same thing as sin...going against what his word teaches. It is a transgression against his law. However in the context where this word is used, it implies a deeper meaning. A sinful condition that causes a variety of sins. It is the difference between saying "I stole 5 dollars " and "I am a thief, I covet, I envy, I lie about it, and I need you brother to help me by holding me accountable if need be...pray for me, support me, love me in spite of my faults because I cannot seem to control this by myself. " Thats why this verse is followed by the story of Elias...big things can happen in a congregation when we have the courage to follow this teaching. In fact we can "hide a multitude of sins "...why? Because we get to the root of the problem. In fact, James says to tell anyone who is willing to "BEAR ONE ANOTHER 'S BURDENS " that they are helping to save that person from death and Hell. This is the most underestimated verse in the scriptures. We don 't teach it, encourage it..be willing to show the example, reward one for doing so. Nor do we expect the receiver to be responsible for the erring brother. It is one of the greatest commandments and purpose to the Lord 's Church. "Lord, how many times should I forgive my brother? "....get the point? You should. Jesus always got to the root of the problem in a person 's life ...every time.
  • Amy on Genesis 3
    I have a question. In Genesis 3 22 we read, "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us... " . Who is "us "? This implies more than one.
  • Graham on Acts 19
    Even though the Ephesus converts and others in the book of Acts received the Holy Spirit after water baptism, some converts in the book of Acts received the Holy Spirit before water baptism. However, I don 't believe that this was proof that they were saved. Let 's use the apostle Paul 's conversion as an example. Acts 9 17 18 proclaims that Paul received the Holy Spirit, and then was baptized. But notice in Paul 's testimony in Acts 22 that Paul 's sins were NOT remitted until after water baptism in the name of Jesus. Acts 22 16 And now why tarriest thou? Arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Paul repented, received the Holy Spirit and had his sins remitted when baptized in the name of Jesus, just like Acts 2 38. Some converts in the book of Acts receive the Holy Spirit before water baptism, and some after, as it still is today. This saving gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ that was first delivered to the saints is still the saving gospel today. Whether Jew or Gentile, it is the same gospel for everybody.
  • Cathy on Hebrews 12:2
    He is our example...so we do what he did which is to look to what was at the end and not focus on the now....and look at what He got in the end? Sitting at the right hand of the almighty !!!!
  • Jorge Portillo on Ecclesiastes 1
    Ecclesiastes 1 18, say 's For in much wisdom is much grief and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. With this verse, are my studies that I 've learned over the years, going to hold me back from entering Heaven..?
  • Dan on Isaiah 5:20
    I 'm no bible thumper, but just saying this applies only to homosexuality is a blind farcical comment. Go look at the political world today. How about the corporate one? Don 't be so blind as to say it doesn 't apply today.
  • Debra on Deuteronomy 1
    1 How long should you pray before answer comes? 2 the wealth of sinners is laid up for the just
  • James on Acts 19
    The Bible says the gospel is to go to the Jew FIRST Rom. 1 16 , so they are the FIRST to receive the gospel in the book of Acts chapter 2 , but they are not the last to receive it. Acts doesn 't end with chapter 2, so we should be cautious of anyone who develops their doctrine in Acts 2 while practically ignoring the next 26 chapters! If God didn 't stop in Acts 2, then why does anyone else? Could it be that the later chapters in Acts contain information which the cultists want hidden from us? Could it be that there are other scriptures in Acts which do not agree with the wording of Acts 2 38? Could it be that Peter himself, the one preaching in Acts 2 38, says something different when speaking to individual Gentiles like you and me? One only has to read Acts chapter 10 to get the answer. Peter is preaching again in Acts 10, except only to individual Gentiles, and something very interesting occurs. In Acts 2 38, the Holy Ghost was promised to be given to the converts AFTER they were baptized, yet in Acts 10 44 the Holy Ghost falls upon the Gentiles BEFORE they are baptized! Now, Paul tells us in Romans 8 9, " . . .if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. " Having God 's Spirit is synonymous with belonging to God or being saved John 3 6 8 , so the Gentiles in Acts 10 were saved BEFORE they were baptized in water. Why don 't the Acts 2 38 cultists ever point this out? Answer It destroys their perverted doctrine that water baptism is essential for salvation.
  • James on Acts 10
    Every person in Acts 2 is a Mosaic law observing Old Testament Jew. In fact, they are all gathered together to observe a JEWISH FEAST called Pentecost verse 1 . A fair reading of the whole chapter especially verses 4, 14, and 36 will clearly reveal that no Gentiles non Jews are present. Since this involves Jews, it involves a NATION verse 36!! , not individuals. No one asked, "What must I do to be saved? " The question asked concerned the NATION of Israel "Men and brethren, what shall we do? " verse 37 Not, "What shall I do, " but rather, "What shall WE do? " Acts 2 presents a NATION of people who come to realize that they have murdered their blessed Messiah and they 're asking what THEY must do. It 's a question concerning NATIONAL salvation. Isaiah 66 8 says, ". . . shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. " The "nation " is Israel! Romans 11 26 says, "And so all Israel shall be saved as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob. " Acts 2 38 is dealing with NATIONAL salvation. The Messianic Kingdom is still available to the Jews until Acts 7 60 when they kill Stephen , so national salvation remains an issue until then.
  • Nicky on Daniel 6
    What can separate us from the love of God? That decree could not stand in Daniel way. Infact it gave him every reason to pray because the Bible says is anyone in trouble let him pray Those who knows their God shall be strong n do exploit
  • Lloyd
    What does it mean when it said that an evil spirit came out of GOD?
  • Norm on Matthew 24
    Dear Wayne Fitzgerald With all humility, I will attempt to correct edify you regarding the mystery of the rapture. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will not subject His own body The members of His Church, the body of Christ in which the Holy Spirit dwells to His wrath. Why would our Lord subject His own body to His own wrath? I believe our Lord did not reveal His mystery to us until "recently " I hear 1800s because it was not relevant. Our Lord gives us tremendous insight regarding the rapture THROUGHOUT Psalms and many other books OT NT . A few random verses pertinent to the rapture Isaiah 57 1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. Jeremiah 23 20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. also see Jeremiah 30 24 1 Thessalonians 5 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Study Psalms 18 for ALL it worth. Also, see Psalms Chp 4, verse 11, which informs us that we are being tracked via GPS satellite technology via our cell phones, GPS, On star etc. Very informative. Would love you have Bible study with you some time. May our Lord bless you with all spiritual wealth. Peace
  • Jake on Acts 2
    People get confused by not rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Tim 2 15. Chrisma means gifted. So a charasmatic is saying he is more gifted than you. Tongues are one of the least gifts one could have see 1 Cor 12 30 and 31. They are not unknown jibber jabber. They are languages that one did not have to study to be able to share the gospel with someone else. See Acts 2 verse 8 And how hear we every man in our own TONGUE, wherein we were born? then verse 6 , because that every man heard them speak in his own LANGUAGE. 1 Cor 14 22 says tongues are for them that BELIEVE NOT. Those who believe don t need to hear you speak in tongues. Also they are for a SIGN and chapter 1 verse 22 says Jews require a SIGN. Matt 12 39 says an evil and adulterous generation seeketh a SIGN. In acts 2,10,19 Jews are present every time because they couldn t believe that Gentiles could even be saved. Read chapter ten. You are not a Jew and most likely have no Jews attending your church services. When you are filled with the Spirit you will speak boldly for the Lord. Lets see you stand on the street corner and speak in so called tongues and find out how many you win to Christ with that behavior.
  • Erwin S. on Revelation 3:16
    Jesus, as our Judge, does not mince His words. If you have received salvation, do you still continue in your old ways, unrepentant, still hanging on to your former self? We should not take likely what He says. He will turn us away. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, 15but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior 16because it is written, "YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY. "1 Pet 1 14 16
  • Erika on Leviticus 19:28
    People are too eager to maim and kill each other over words. Do the anti tattooists never eat catfish? Catfish have no scales. Do they refuse a surgical incision? Many threats to life like cancer or a bullet need to be removed. Do they refuse to breastfeed their infants? Vital blood components for baby 's health are in breast milk. Do they refuse life saving blood transfusions? If so then their god is a god who demands human blood sacrifice. That is not my god.
