  • Veronica Knight on 1 Timothy 2:12
    A heavy spirit of confusion is upon me when it comes to this scripture. When I read this I recieve it as a guide for us all, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. what I can not get settled in my spirit is are ALL of these churches wrong who have woman in the pulpit? Are they worng for having women Elders?, Are they wrong for having women pastors over churches? If so why isn't there more MEN of God teaching against this and exsposing it for what it is. For those like myself who hungers to know and do what thus says the lord. I am fairly new to walking with Christ as my Savior, but I study heavly, and I want to get it right this time for He has gave me a second chance and I don't want it to be in vain. I will not knowingly be a part of anything that God speaks against.
  • Rev. Autrey on Psalms 18:46
    (Verse 46) "The Lord lives! Blessed be my rock! May the God of my salvation be exalted!"

    Didn't Paul say in 1 Corthenians 10:4-5 that the rock who followed the Jews through the wilderness was Christ? Yet, in the next sentence he said the rock was God. And didn't Peter say in Acts 4:12 that "there is salvation in no one else! There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call on to save them." If David had salvation, and Peter had salvation, then it was Jesus who saved both of them.

    People of God, we must be consistent in our thinking. There are not two types of salvation. And there are not two Saviors. Jesus is the Savior now just as he was the Savior in the days of old.

    God bless you!
  • Pat on Matthew 14
    peter was sinking and believed that he was dying and called out - Jesus save me. Just like when we are dying we should call out even mentally - Jesus save me and Jesus will come and save us, and say - why did you doubt?
  • Kevin on Matthew 24
    A friend said this about v 14. The people we are seeing saved from many areas and countries, may be the witnesses for their country, tribe or people. God will then use them for the pouring out of his spirit in the end? Exciting. Be a part of the great harvest. Tell the story of the cross.
  • Joe on Matthew 5
    Verses 1 & 2 mentions 'multitudes' and 'disciples' which I understand to mean Jesus taught many others besides His choosen apostiles. Is my understanding correct?
  • Dennis Meyer on Matthew 12
    Replying to Pat, in researching this what is the foundation of verse 40? You would have to go back to Jonah 1:17 where it says he was in the belly of the fish 3 days & 3 nights. So if we doubt that Christ & Jonah were in the grave & fish for 3 days & 3 nights, can we also have reason to doubt the creation and that God created everything in 6 days & nights and rested on the seventh, or did it really rain for 40 days & 40 nights at the time of the flood. As for me I believe what the Word of God says.
    Next in Ex. 12:3-6 where it talks about the Passover lamb (which I believe represents the Messiah) and that it should be brought in on the 10th day and examined 4 days before it is sacrificed on the 14th day. And as verse 5 states without blemish (just like the Messiah). I relate this with Christ riding into Jerusalem on the donkey in Matt 11:1-11. Would this not be what we know as Psalm Sunday? So my next question is if Christ entered into Jerusalem on Sun. and was examined for 4 days as spoken of in Ex. would not that mean Christ was crucified on Wed. and rose at the end of the Sabbath and not Fri. or else we have to move Psalm Sunday to Tues. for the 4 day examination to work and get a Fri. crucifixion and a Mon resurrection if you apply the 3 day and 3 nights.
    I pray Pat that you will research this more and decide one way or the other and be fully convinced in your heart and your mind. God bless.
  • Pandey top on Daniel 8:21
    who is this first king ? Danial8:21
  • Napitenkah on Mark 11
    This is interesting in that it shows, that Jesus would curse a fig tree that was out of season for growing figs, so that no one could ever eat figs from it again, and die. So he could show that you can do anything you desire if you believe? People continually say he voided out the ways of the old testament, but here he reaffirms it. Cursed a living thing, because it didn't bear fruit outside of when it was designed to grow.
  • ALY on Job 38
    No explanation-
    No expectation-
    No exclamation--oh job I feel so bad for your hurt
    Job, examine yourself...where were you?
    Every time he showed job job couldn't or didn't...he was giving job the answer--IAM the answer.
  • Jonathan on 1 Timothy 5:8
    I have recently decided I would rely on scripture for my guidance 100%, but now I am in a pickle: I lost my job 1 month ago, (the day I cried to God to free me from the slavery I felt I was in). I supported coca-cola, which I believe destroys other peoples' abilities to provide for their families in other countries (they pollute the air and water wherever they go!). From my current skill-set, it seems impossible to find a job (that pays enough to support my family) AND doesn't support "the beast"...as you probably know most jobs have hidden the impact they have on the poor, marginalized, people of other countries, environment, etc... the employee doesn't realize how much damage they are doing...so...find another Earth-destroying job? or do like the Gospels say and "not worry for my life, what I should eat and wear..."...and potentially see my family torn apart...
  • Ann H. on Exodus 20:10
    Which day is the seventh day on the calendar? Look at a calendar and you will notice that Sunday is usually the 1st day listed, then Monday is the 2nd day listed, then Tuesday is the 3rd day listed, then Wednesday is the 4th day listed, then Thursday is the 5th day listed, then Friday is the 6th day listed, and then, Saturday is listed as the 7th day of the week. It really is not that hard to figure out. Jesus and His apostles all observed the Sabbath from Friday evening at sunset through Saturday evening sunset.
  • @MikeWinNormanOK on Genesis 32
    Yes, Jacob's walk was forever changed by his encounter with the Lord. I think it is useful to consider God's perfect, best, center of His will, in all areas, as opposed to His permissive will.

    This practice helps us make sense of lots of Bible happenings. Did God really teach slavery and to dominate people, for example, or, if you are going to have slaves, and abuse them, blinding. an eye or knocking out a tooth, you will let them go free.

    Did God really want Jacob to limp the rest of His life when in Acts a man was given complete wholeness. We can get in a habit of saying we like our dull, speckled axe rather than admit our failings and press in. Miriam was healed of her leprosy, but the entire camp knew it.

    Oswald Chambers, an early 1900s man of God, in his daily devotional "My Utmost for His Highest" suggested this speaks to the idea that we don't want to wrestle with God, not wanting to renounce a sin , or a call to ministry?, for example, but wrestle before Him, laying of the call of Jesus Christ, doing ministry, defeating Satan, etc. I agree , which adds nothing to Brother Chambers legacy.
  • Tommy T on 1 Peter 5:9
    1 Peter 5:9 .....stedfast.....
    Seems that "unmoveable" would be a good meaning?
  • Eric J on Matthew 26:28
    The phrase “for the remission of sins” translates the Greek 'eis aphesin ton hamartion'. The preposition eis points to a goal that is as yet unreached. Never, in any reputable translation, is this expression rendered “because of the remission of sins.”

    Compare, for instance, the use of the phrase in Matthew 26:28. In that text, Jesus declared: “For this is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for [eis] the remission of sins.”

    Now here is an appropriate question: Does it matter whether or not one believes that the Lord shed his blood “to obtain” remission of sins, or if he died “because of” pardon already effected? Is what one believes regarding the efficacious nature of Christ’s death important?

    How can one possibly hold the viewpoint that opposite constructions are equally valid? Such is a wholly illogical position. How can one conscientiously ignore inspired grammatical forms that were designed to convey precise religious ideas?

    Unfortunately, this is the extreme to which some appear to be driven in their irresponsible attempts to extend Christian fellowship across the borders of modern denominationalism.

    Underline the phrase “for the remission of sins” in Acts 2:38, and in your margin make this notation: See Matthew 26:28 — same purpose phrase
  • Lawrence (Larry) Cecil on Revelation 18:4
    Some may say when they loose their career due to layoffs and corporate budget cuts, that God has killed their career, life and family and say "what did I do wrong Lord, to deserve this?" When in fact, if very well could be that God is protecting you and is drawing you out from among them that will suffer the God's judgment when the Angle is commanded to pour out the seventh (I think it's the 7th) Vile of God's Wrth. I think this is a clear sigh for believers that God is on the job more than you think.
  • T Bennett on John 2
    What does Jesus mean when he says "woman what have I to do with thee?" Sorry but it sounds kinda rude to call your mother woman more or less 'what have i to do with you'. Can someone explain the context?
  • Rev. Autrey on Psalms 41
    (Verse 16) "But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness. May those who love your salvation repeadly shout, "The Lord is great!"

    If David here is talking about the Father, then we have two Saviors. And this cannot be so. The Scripture is very clear, Jesus is our Savior. The Scripture says, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." That is, he was the one who saved people in David's time, and he is the one who saves us now. All we have to do is put our trust in him, and we will see that it is so.

    But what about the Father? The Father is the way God makes decisions. But Jesus is the way God saves us!

    May God bless you!
    So verse 17 says, "As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord is thinking about me right now. You are my helper and my Savior. Do not dalay, O my God."
  • Zelion on Genesis 2
    Hi there all.Well where did God get the idea of grass,trees,fish,animals and humans?How did he know about the possibility of fona&flora,where did he see it?I think i know,do you?
  • Michele on Mark 1
    I started my 2014 by Reading Mark 1. Just like in today's modern world, I am sure there are unclean spirits in churches today?? Only God knows our hearts! I love John's description of our Lord.
  • Samuel Adebayo's comment on 2013-02-23 13:06:30:
    "How do I build my faith?"
    Pray for it and read the scriptures through the written Word in the King James Bible.
  • Thank you for answering this I sat in a service where they were putting down people who are used to Prophesy, I know the Spirit of the Prophet is subject to the Prophet. God dropped a message in my spirit where there was no opportunity to give it. I waited until the next day when the opportunity clearly presented itself. These people were saying this scripture means we need to sift through the message. I thought that is like God saying I want to say this, is that ok? I am not a prophet though God has used me. I have a hard time. Once I let it go it flows like a river, like speaking in tongues. How could I stop it, or take back anything the Lord says? It is bad enough the way it seems like every spirit in the room zooms in on me. Then for someone to say it is wrong, and that God doesn't do it that way, nor is the old testament needed now, since Jesus fufilled it we can throw it away.
  • Willie tuggle on 1 Peter 4:17
    When Peter said if it begins it begins with us, is he talking about the church or elders?
    1 Peter 4:17.
  • Tom on Acts 2:38
    1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit (The Holy Spirit) are we all baptized into one Body (Body of Christ)..... The one Baptizing is [The Holy Spirit] The one Baptized [The Believer] What is he baptized into [The Body of Christ]
    "For the remission of sins" means [because of the remission of sins] When you take medicine (for) a headache, is it in order (to get) a headache? Water Baptism necessary? Yes! In obedience to Christ {BECAUSE WE ARE SAVED} NOT TO BE Saved. What can wash away my sin??? Nothing but the blood of Jesus! Romans 10:9-13 2Cor 13:14 The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God, and the Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
  • BibleFan on Esther 8
    unto every province according to the writing thereof - and unto every people after their language - sound familiar?
  • Laura Scott on Leviticus 18
    THIS CHAPTER IS WHAT DADDY PHIL ROBERTSON WAS REFERRING TO. WHAT ABOUT NUMBER 22 DO PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND?
  • David Filut on John 3:16
    Truly i confess to all that read the words of God, for he did give his only begotten son for that who soever believeith in him shal not parish but have everlasting life. Thease are not just words people for this is the truth, the life and the way of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. He shed his preshes blood to clense us you and me from our sins. For i beliveith in him and i worship him, i freely give all GLORY to him i give to him all that i am , all that i have. For the LORD GOD IN HEAVEN is the LORD of my life. GLORY BE TO GOD. HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD GOD ALL MIGHTY WHICH IS AND WAS AND IS TO COME! Is he the lord of your life people? Its not to late all you got to do is ask. Ask and you shall recieve, knock and his door shall be opened to you. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
  • Evangelist Grant on 1 John 2:15
    Love not the world (in which we live) neither the things that are in the world ( money, houses, clothes, cars, jewelry, any device made good or evil or the pleasures of this world. If (is a condition) any man love the world the love of the Father is not in him. We cannot love God and mammon there must be a choice made either or. Strait is the gate and narrow is the way and few there be that find it. Will you find your way to the Father, Son Jesus , and the Holy Spirit?
    We cannot focus if our minds ,hearts, and souls, are not seeking him. We are or become void meaning empty inside.
  • Eric on John 3:30
    The carnal man focuses more on carnal things than spiritual things. Carnal things lead to all manners of woe and strife, yet the carnal lusts may remain, yea, even grow stronger as the carnally minded man does not always learn from his follies, and in many cases does not wish to, being hard-hearted. Christ on the other hand speaks to us of spiritual truths that lead to holiness and blessedness when incorporated into our lives, as well as the need to repent from the "I" that desires carnality and sin (literally to DENY oneself) in order to slowly but surely begin eradicating the temptation to sin (to be delivered from evil). If the heart of man is desperately wicked, it is because it is focused on wicked things. Therefore, to accomplish seeing and entering the Kingdom of God, we must seek first righteousness and be as little children (teachable and trusting in the verity of the words of the Good Teacher). Jesus IS the embodiment of righteousness and truth, therefore HIS commandments, precepts, indeed all that Jesus IS must therefore continually increase in our lives, and the carnal "I" must decrease. How else can you expect to win the race set before your soul except to prepare rigorously, as Paul exhorts us, believing AND FOLLOWING the words of our Good Shepherd and Teacher?
  • DL Greeno on Genesis 1
    To doubt the authenticity of any part of God's creation of earth and man is to question as did Eve, "Hast God said...?" The earth is as old as it is (6,000+ years). From the evolution theory to the so-called "Gap Theory," they can not be proven. However, when God created MAN, He created him as if he were full grown (not from a baby-to youth-and then manhood). This He did also of the trees, beasts of the field, etc. This would account even for the so-called fossils being ex-number of years old; if they are, it is only in man's reasoning. In actuality they only appear that old because, at whatever point, they were created 6,000+ years excluding the time they would have fully grown.
  • Tom on Malachi 1:11
    How can this prophecy be fulfilled? There is only one pure offering, and that is the offering of Jesus to his Father on the cross. But how is this fulfulled from the rising to setting of the sun, and in every place? There is only one way. The Holy Mass offered over 100,000 times per day. Every moment a priest is elevating the host proclaiming, "This is my Body ...". This is happening around the clock, every timezone, and around the world. By this, we participate in the one and only sacrifice of Christ on the cross. This is the one and only way this prophecy is fulfilled.
