    Vague open ended threats like Peter said in his underground Gospel criticizing the strict measures taken to enter heaven. The Bible may say that souls will be eliminated, but it doesn't mean that they will. No where does it say that billions of billions of people are, or were tossed in the lake of fire, only the threat. Same goes for the billions of people that will choose the mark over death during the 42 months of great tribulation between the 6th & 7th trumpets. These survivors of the 6th trumpet will have no choice if they want to live, but to take the mark. If you, your family are starving, are you going to pine away, die, or take the mark? I grantee you 99.9% will take the mark. What if having a US SS# or driver license is accepting the mark?

    So, 2 Billion living Muslims will lose their eternal lives because they were born Muslim, and didn't bend a knee to Jesus Christ? Do you understand the ramifications that that puts on all of humanity, especially of those that are limited?

    I don't see God throwing away any of his creations, not one of them. Every hair on your head is counted, God knows us all. What of the 107 Billion souls that have lived prior to Christ? They have their place too. Perhaps that's why at the 2nd resurrection the new heavens and earth appear to accommodate everyone?

    Hi Yolande ,your message really touched me , i was not brought up with God and Jesus and when i was young i very much felt like a lost soul in a world i didnt like or understand ,i decided i wanted to know about God and started reading the Bible and i havent looked back since ,imagine you had a brother you had never met and you had to write a letter to him ,you know nothing about him ,where would you start ? If you could you might try to find out some thing about him before you wrote to him , the Bible is an enormous gift to us from God ,its an invitation to get to know Him and His Son and the promises He has made about the future ,the future that you can have a part in ,He loves you and wants you with Him for ever ! Please ,learn about Him and His plan of salvation for you from His Word ,thats where He is and He is waiting for you ,start at the begining of the Old or the New Testament ,it doesnt matter which , read every day ,even if its only one chapter ,dont try to understand it all straight away because you wont ,you can ask others for help but remember ,find out for yourself ! God will help you ,relax and enjoy the Word ,dont be hard on yourself if you dont unferstand it all ,that will come in time ,be patient ,God is very patient and your salvation and relationship with Him are very personal and precious as are you to Him .
  • More on the Godhead in the Bible on Acts 3
    Reply to Rod:

    Using the Search Box on this website; type in the words, Trinity or Triune. Those 2 words ARE NOT in the King James Bible. Cover to cover.

    If you type GODHEAD, you'll see 3 scriptures be fetched by the search engine. Read these.

    Acts 17:32

    Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

    Comment: people will buy paintings of the Godhead and decorate their walls.

    Romans 1:20

    For the invisible things of HIM from the creation of the world are CLEARLY SEEN, being understood by the things that are made (us), even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    Colossians 2:9

    For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead BODILY.

    Comments by me. Genesis 1:1 is clearly understood. God Wills; Jesus (The Word) speaks; the Holy Spirit performs. "Time. Force. Action. Matter". Four things all scientists have tried to explain throughout time. Earth is the only planet that has water.

    Christians have the mind of Christ. We're all enabled to see the Godhead at work; on earth and in our lives. How? The Holy Spirit indwells us in our born again spirits and teaches us the Word of God. Seek and you will find.

    If we can just read the Bible and accept what is written in it; believe, apply to our lives; and like little children do: believe what God says about Himself. If you doubt or debate, you're in a ditch. Your faith is a shipwreck.

    God is on the Throne. Jesus sits at the right hand of God, making intercession for The Saints of God. That's us. The Holy Spirit is present on Earth, PERFORMING what is in the mind of Jesus Christ.

    How hard is that to understand? The Godhead works together every moment. A Bible ENCYCLOPEDIA shows all of the Holy Spirits names. There are many. Learn all of them. Praise and worship that He is at work in your life. Do not grieve or quench the Holy Spirit.

    Image and spirit are not the same. Image can be seen. Image of God means God created us to look like Him. Wasn't Jesus a man in the flesh but will the spirit of God? God bless you
  • Vince - in Reply on Judges 7
    Are you saying here that God created the world and out of no where evil entered the creation? That would mean God don't know all things. God put evil and death here, therefore, this world was not intended to be everlasting paradise.

    God gave Adam the power to receive the knowledge of good with evil. Adam thought he will be wise which he did receive wisdom, but wisdom is of the knowledge of evil and death. Remember, everything is equal and opposite physically and spiritually. So to be wise, one has to know good and evil. This will take time for you to get. God bless you

    To Richard and Daren.

    As I read your comments, I get the sense of selfishness in regards to God's salvation plan. You are thinking to be saved is by works of obedience. You are both forgetting your neighbors around the world who, for no reason of their own, don't have the equal chance to receive the gospel of Jesus the Christ. You are also forgetting the millions and millions of souls that died in the womb. Also, those that died very young before they could understand God's word. What about those who are autistic who don't understand right and wrong? What about those who lived and died before Jesus was ever even born?

    God choose people from the womb to the tomb. He choose them not by their good deeds, because everyone does not have an equal chance to perform good deeds, but by His mercy and His Grace from before the world was created. Check out the book of Revaluation which shows us that many people will be saying they did good works and thought they will be allowed to enter heaven based on their works. God bless you
  • Yoland - in Reply on Psalms 121
    When am confuse or trouble is coming my way I pray but sometimes I still feel lost can you explain to me about my part?
  • Yoland on Psalms 121
    Can you help me to fully understand this chapter. Thanks
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    Dear Gabe,

    I will pray. God has blessed you with freedom to make choices and take action and I also challenge you to take action towards improving this area of your life. So, instead of just asking God to take care of this for you, it's both praying and you doing your part. This is a good verse to repeat regularly: Philippians 4:13

    We don't know each other, but I already detected a word you said had a negative slant to it and I don't believe is true. You wrote that you "can't" leave your home. But you can. Sometimes negative thoughts need to be challenged. If what is said is true, then surely it can withstand a few questions, right? Often we entrap ourselves in our own mental prison, because of our own negative thinking. So, instead of assuming you can't do things, assume you can. Instead of looking at glass half empty, look at it half full. Instead of looking at your life as what you don't have or can't do. Thank God and be greatful for all you have and all you CAN do. Keep repeating Philippians 4:13. That verse says you CAN not a can't. Who do you believe more, God, or that thought that said you can't? Where does the can't thought come from? Your parents, relative, spouse, you as a child, a boss, satan? Is it true only for you or for everyone else? Is it true 100% of the time, only part of the time, or none of the time? What if it wasn't true?

    I'm not sure if you realize this, but many people used to have paralyzing anxieties and no longer do. If millions of people could learn to manage and improve in this area, don't you think there's a high % probability you can too? I'm sure you're aware of all the resources God has already blessed us with to help, like books and counseling with ideas. The #1 thing to reduce anxiety is exposure to the thing that triggers the anxiety, in tiny little increments. Open door, close it, open door take one step, go back, etc. Each day expanding, and using positive reinforcement. Then challenging our assumptions and negative thoughts. God bless..
  • Janet on Luke 5
    Do animals have a soul ? Please provide scriptural reference . Thank you
  • Chris - in Reply on Acts 5:33
    The Acts 5 reference is not necessarily applied by the commentator but a random Scripture from this site.

    I agree with what you've written. My problem is my niggling conscience that stops me lending any support or affirmation to a party or individual that holds to unbiblical values, indeed to anti Christ teaching. One could then say, 'who could one then vote for or support?' So it boils down to the dictates of the conscience & so one shouldn't feel guilty for not aligning with a particular party or personality as each of us is answerable to God for our decisions or judgements.
  • D.yoder on Psalms 130
    What is your life expectancy
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Judges 7
    Born again signifies you are like Jesus, a brother, void of sin. You can tell me you are born again, but you are still a sinner. That is self-evident. Does a leopard change its spots?

    Besides, only 3 spirits are set in the lake of fire, not people. Spirits. I'm more inclined to believe that everyone gets everlasting life. Even bogey men like Stalin, Hitler, Judas etc, who did God's will by fulfilling prophesy, get in. Who standing at the great white throne, while trembling, will defy God? God is love, and God heals by changing our hearts and minds.
  • DianaRose on Genesis 3
    Struggling with teenager temptations, as a Christian as such a young age I want to continue to grow and build my relationship and bond with Jesus my savior please write me any scriptures and email me for more info god bless this fallen world.
  • Herman Brown on Genesis 3
    Can you loose your salvation.
  • Mike - in Reply on Romans 8:9
    Actually Cain is the son of Adam because Adam and Eve was the first man and woman ever to be created by God and because of their disobedience Cain and Abel his brother come into existence to know more about it reading the book of Genesis from the beginning will tell you everything
  • Chris - in Reply on Acts 3
    If you reject commentators' understanding of Matthew 11:16,17, how do you then understand those verses?

    I generally accept a comment, if made by one well studied in the Scriptures & who gives it a good support/defence, but leave the matter open till the Spirit reveals otherwise. So what I'm saying is, let's not discount all commentaries as I believe many of them have much to teach us as well, that will help us in understanding the Bible better. Otherwise, one should refuse to attend a Fellowship as the preacher offers a verbal commentary to us.

  • Pandemic or Pestilence - in Reply on Revelation 21
    Jesus tells us in Matthew 24, and also, Mark and Luke; what are to be signs of the times we are living in.

    I've listened to some of those folks teaching on what Covid means to this generation. The Bible names these things as PESTILENCE. Today's world, HIDES that by calling it, PANDEMIC.

    Africa, the Mideast and other places are overrun with locust Pestilence. All their crops are being destroyed. The world food supply is being attacked every day. You can Google "Locust Swarms today", and read those reports. Our national news media NEVER reports that on the evening news. They have used the honey bee disaster occasionally. That's a Pestilence too.

    Last year we had almost no hurricanes till the end of the season; and then here hey come: one on top of another. Look at the recording websites, daily, of earthquakes, volcanoes, typhoons, etc.

    Three million Californians have moved to Texas because they greatly fear "the big one is coming". Population is shifting everywhere. Forest fires are expected every year now. Scientists say that Yellowstone super volcano is showing "signs" of great instability.

    God in His Mercy is trying to get our attention off sports etc and onto His end time plans (Matthew 24). Stay informed. Don't build your house on a riverbank, the beach, or in the middle of a forest!

    Shockingly, there are 3 scriptures in the Bible that point to China as a pestilence/pandemic source. Mostly due to crowding, little food for the poor, and nefarious people. Type 'China' in the search box and get your Bible maps out. The ancient Mideast is named too.

    It's been in the Bible for 2000 years. We just didn't see it until now.

    Make PREPARATION, and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior now! Get your loved ones in His care, NOW. Quit listening to fools and read the Book of Peter yourself. Jesus is the Rock of our Salvation.

    Trust Him, and Him only. The world, or Jesus? Pick only one.

  • SkipVought - in Reply on Psalms 24
    Psalms 24 was one of The Psalms read in public school homeroom every morning. I heard it read so often that I have most of it memorized.

    The portion that deeply influenced me is...

    Who shall ascend to The Hill of The LORD or who shall stand in His Holy Place?

    He that hath clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

    He shall receive the blessing of The LORD and Righteousness from The God of his Salvation.

    Righteousness that is not my own.

    "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;"Titus 3:5

    "But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:"1Co 1:30
  • Mishael - in Reply on Acts 3
    I meant genetically of course.

    Joseph and Mary were both chosen to be Jesus's parents. Why is it so easy to be offended when the details are recorded in scripture? I was not disputing anything. I'm sorry you were upset by my comment.

    Isn't it true that Cain is NOT the son of Adam?
  • Wenmar - in Reply on John 6:53
    Hi Tiffany...but to read the Word of God daily is such a privilege and is so refreshing to your spirit! Don't miss out! Everyday I learn something new, or understand something that I did not before. Our Lord IS the Word, and we are to take Him in daily for He is the bread of life...is He not? God Bless and keep.
