  • Irene123 on Psalms 53
    But still, in OUR age of Grace - we are to pray for the 'fools'; He came not to condemn the world, but to save it - one individual at a time; not the whole unrepentant world. There are actually people that believe the world was saved when Jesus was crucified - and there is nothing we need to do - except 'kick back' and enjoy our lives. Why then, would He have sacrificed Himself ..... ?
  • Irene123 on 1 Peter 5
    To Sean - You may have gotten help on your problem by now with associating with 'unbelievers' ..... ? I send you these in case you've never seen them 1 Cor. 6:12-15.
  • Irene123 on Revelation 11
    Rev. - the 7 churches - I don't understand just the7; when there are churches everywhere in that area, and all over the world. Maybe these 7 are just 'representative' ..... ? I do know the 7 'angels' are the pastors of these churches. There may be something to it, but the fish and loaves sounds like a stretch. I do know '7' is a favorite no. of God.
  • Sakana on Revelation 11
    Verse 4. The candlesticks are churches (Revelation 1:20). Christ was only happy with 2 of the 7 and little doubt it's Smyrna and Philadelphia. This shows us the approved churches are here with the 2 witnesses. The other 5 Christ warns will be deceived and spewn from His mouth if they don't care to learn. 2 fish (meat) and 5 loaves (bread with leaven), maybe? (Just supposition on that last bit.) :)
  • Reverent Steve Hislop on Psalms 91
    I also read Psalms 91 for protection when I served the US Army in Vietnam. Some have said Jesus referred to this portion of Scripture as the sword which Peter misinterpreted at the time thinking Jesus wanted them all to go out and buy literal swords !?
  • Martha on Revelation 11
    If the saints of God are raptured out then how does He fulfill these scriptures?
    Daniel 7:25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High; Revelation 13:7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints,
  • Mayo on John 11
    Can you tell me why Jesus said so??? Nevertheless he came to the burial ground purposely because of Lazarus and for other dreads.
  • I AM on Exodus 6
    Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? You know that Jesus Christ is already here! Did you not know it has been given to every spirit to know that Christ is come in the flesh? These people honor me with their lips but their heart is far from me. This liar is a deceiver and an antichrist. Children of God: that antichrist spirit of denial is in many so that you can be sure Christ is now here for the last time. Be thankful as your salvation is nigh!
  • Brianna on 1 John 5
    Vs. 3 This scripture is clear. To love Jehovah God is not a matter of feelings or words only. It HAS to be proven by our actions. Can one simply go to church on Sunday, and yet live their lives in a way that does not please God every other day? Is this acceptable to God? We know it isn't. If we truly love God, we will read his word the Bible everyday, and APPLY it.
  • Irene123 on Revelation 11
    The rapture isn't about individuals being taken to heaven - here 'n there; it's the WHOLE church of the Lord Jesus, worldwide, taken to be with Him forever - before the trib. A LOVING God would NOT allow such horror as 7trs. of trib. to befall His people whom He - LOVES. He's certainly not less than an earthly father. How can you say God is love and then say He will let us go thru that?!!
  • Irene123 on Galatians 1
    To Bruce - You've got me curious; at the end of many of your comments you say, "impossible not to know". How is it impossible not to know? And a week ago you said, "changed: 2 Cor. 5:17." what changed?
  • Irene123 on Acts 28
    I've seen several on here that I know are aware of the end of Acts - it has no 'closing', no 'amen', no 'bless you all in Jesus name', nothing like that; it just - stops. Does anyone know why this is?
  • Irene123 on Acts 23
    V. 2 - Paul spoke truth in v. 1; in v. 2 Ananias commanded Paul to be sote on the mouth, which God stopped. When someone witnesses, in person, by letter, by phone, by PC, - it is wrong to 'smite' them by getting indignant, angry, and saying they are fools, ignorant, etc. In Pro. it says a 'soft' answer, in Isa., Jer.? it says, "Come now, let us reason together, ..... "; cont.
  • Irene123 on Jude 1
    The canon of the KJV was set by GOD; it is HIS book, after all. Anyone who wants to read the apocrypha can do so; it's in other books; so why complain about it ..... ? You still have your freedom to read the apocrypha. God will keep His book, the KJV, the way He wants it.
  • Irene123
    V. 24 - " ....... in sincerity ...". Those 2 words say a lot. "Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee." Psalms ??
  • Sakana on Revelation 11
    Since when has God raptured or "snatched away" any of his children? Noah went through flood. Moses crossed Red Sea. David fought Goliath. Daniel went IN lion's den. The 3 went THROUGH the fiery furnace. Glory to His name not by running. Rather we go through things and Father protects us. Don't want to run away. Want to STAND/FIGHT, why else bother with armor? Candlesticks are present in Trib, v4.
  • Ambassador for Christ on Ephesians 6
    This is one of the most potent and powerful scripture which must always be viewed in context. Therefore, We were have to begin at verse :10 and conclude at verse :18. It begs the question what must we do with all that armor?
  • Seven Trumpets on Matthew 27
    (25) "Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children." We read these things, and our hearts break with anguish, and we can't believe ANYONE could be so hateful and cruel! All through their history, the disobedient children of Israel have sought every way to break their bands of God, and the world has watched with disgust. But are not the Nations doing the same?
  • Irene123 on Genesis 1
    The incredible potential of nothing - God doesn't see 'nothing' as we see it. For God, nothing is the raw material for everything He created. Why is that important to us? If you feel you are nothing (not prideful, etc.), feel you have nothing to offer God - then you are exactly what God needs to perform a miracle. 'Miracle' equaling - salvation, Acts 2:38.
  • Sakana on Revelation 9
    Clue to 5 months is v. 6, "in those days men seek death." Revelation 6:15-17 they pray (seek) for mountains to fall on them (death). Why? Because Christ returns and they understand they've worshipped false Christ. So, in those days (while locust are here - 5 months), Christ returns. Time HAS been shortened (Mark 13:20). Cannot be 3.5 yrs. Original length used in Rev to reference Daniel.
  • I AM on Revelation 18
    Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit to his stature? Verily I say to you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! Wherefore, if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek: for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness: and all these things shall be added to you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. It is of the LORD'S mercies that men are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. And, the times of this ignorance God winked at but now commands all men every where to repent: repent ye and believe the gospel that your sins may be blotted out.
  • Peter on Exodus 20
    Hi J R Botleng

    I don't know if it matters. I just try to keep the Sunday that i was brought up in.

    On another matter, I try to keep the commandments but there are few things I can not figure out.
    Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

    Why do people take the chance?

    I can not figure that out?
  • Cheryl on Luke 17
    the question for Luke chptr 17 spoke about the Lord healing 10 men but the question throw me because HOW MANY LEAPERS JESUS HEALED IN THE WHOLE BIBLE? An if you look at it this way the Lord had healed more than the questions was asking. I feel the question was out of order because of the statement that the Lord Luke 12 when the Lord entered into the village THERE WERE 10 LEPERS,
  • I AM on Revelation 12
    Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me. For now ye are nothing: ye see my casting down, and are afraid. The sinners in Zion are afraid: fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
  • Irene123
    Bruce, where is your 'love'? You never encourage anyone; you're always picking at what we put on here. That's what the Pharisees did. That's why Jesus got after them - their lack of love. He loved them, but had to do some 'straight' talking to them to reach at least one of them. Not for me, but for Jesus - please read the 'love' verses again; I know you have read them, and maybe know them.
  • Irene123 on Galatians 1
    To Bruce - You probably won't answer this, but - how were you baptized? Matthew 28:19 ..... ? I was baptized by Matthew 28:19 - using the words of Jesus (thru Peter) of Acts 2:38; Matthew 16:19.
  • Bruce on Acts 25
    Satan never asked permission, he never mentioned Job. The Lord said unto him, Satan has thou considered myself Servant Job---? Job 1:8
  • Irene123
    Michelleann cont. - One needs the Holy Spirit indwelling in them (Acts 2:38) for the power (strength) to acquire the peace of God that passeth ALL understanding. One prays everyday after being saved for a fresh infilling of God's spiritual gifts; we don't just pray one time for them. To have the power of His spirit in you, you HAVE to follow Acts 2:38. V, 37 - "what must we do?"
  • Mike on 1 Timothy 2
    The scripture is plain clear. Public teaching of women where men are present is what the Apostle Paul is talking about. There's lots of work for a woman in the Church. Only this one is reserved for men. Must we argue with God?
  • Patricia Balla on Psalms 42
    This psalm means the world to me.
    When my son was diagnose with stage 4 colon cancer at age 32 ,
    I had shared the news to 3 personal good friends . They all said to me " where is your God ???" Your always perching to us !!!
    I was floored ! Instead of receiving
    Compassion from them . Father God put words in my mouth to respond to them ! He told me to say " He's right here with me !"
