  • Mosadoluwa Olaniyi on 2 Kings 1
    If we look at what happened here,we will know that the way God answered His minister in the past was by a second or immediate effect like this prophet and others.Because of command tone of Elijah here.But right now,some men of God will pray hard for many days before Creator answer a single word which means God closer in olden days than this time.Either because of sins or because of selfishness.Now, some leaders seek deviners before getting to power and still they suvive.Why?.Though,God be with His own people but not like people of the middle age.
  • Thy word is truth on 1 Corinthians 14
    Concerning tongues. They are for a sign. Look at verse 22. (1 Cor 1:22) Says that the Jews! require a sign. Now go back and read Acts chapters 2,10,19 and see that Jews were present everytime tongues are spoken. Tongues are languages unknown to the speaker but known to the hearer in order for God to get His message across. Check this verse (Acts 2:8) And how hear we every man in our own TONGUE, wherein we were born? Now look up at verse 6. ",because that every man heard them speak in his own language." According to the Bible this is Biblical tongues, not jibber jabber. Check out the Hindu's for further insight into this movement. Good day.
  • Wambugi on Esther 3
    Haman must be langushing in hell as we talk. How could he be such a fool? Did he think he could terminate God's promises to Abraham just like that? I pray in the Name of Jesus Christ that any "Haman" in the lives of the true christians will die NOW in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ.
  • Angel L on John 9
    The first interesting thing is they ask who had sin that this man was born blind. If he were "born blind" how could he have sinned? Did he sin prior to birth? The second is the Pharisees rather than rejoicing in a man's good fortune to be blessed with eyesight seek to find wrong doing instead. Don't you think they know it had to be Jesus who performed such a miracle? Of course because they had already threatened people that they would be put out of the synogogue for saying such a thing was done by Christ/Jesus. They would rather fight fault in Him than to rejoice over a healing.

    The Pharisees were not interested in the wellfare of the people they were interested in money and power and flaunting their status over those who they deemed below them. This is why they sought to kill Jesus and to trap Him in a lie. He reflected their sinful hearts to them and they didn't like being reminded of their own pride and arrogance.

    I also find it interesting that this man's parents are more concerned with being thrown out of the temple which would reflect poorly on their status in society rather than rejoice over their son gaining his eyesight. Also, if he was known for begging then they were not caring for him in their own home.
  • Yahoo on Esther 10
    did you notice the name God or Jehovah is not mentioned in this Book. you know why ?
  • Don Shirley on Isaiah 65:20
    In the narrow context, the passage is somewhat difficult. What is an "infant of days" and why will there no longer be any? Why are they talking about children dying in what seems to be a blessing and evil men being cursed with old age? My best understanding is that Isaiah is writing about being in the manifest presence of God, whether millennial or in eternity (the context is God creating a new heavens and a new earth--compare to 2 Pet. 3:8-15a). In either case, it would seem he is saying that for those who walk in God's presence, childhood seems to last forever, whereas for the cursed, to remain in that state for even a moment is horrific, but for a hundred years would be devastating. It is definitely a verse of contrast. The entire chapter is about the rejection of Israel as a people (compare vs. 1-7 with Rom. 10:21 and Acts 28:25-28) and the inclusion of Gentiles in the chosen. The bulk of the contrast in this chapter is between disobedient Israel and the new body of believers that would be made up of believing Jews and converted Gentiles.
  • Thy word is truth on 2 Timothy 2
    Matthew Henry comments on this verse saying: "Study to show thyself approved unto God, 2 Timothy 2:15. Observe, The care of ministers must be to approve themselves unto God, to be accepted of him, and to show that they are so approved unto God. In order thereunto, there must be constant care and industry: Study to show thyself such a one, a workman that needs not be ashamed. Ministers must be workmen; they have work to do, and they must take pains in it. Workmen that are unskilful, or unfaithful, or lazy, have need to be ashamed; but those who mind their business, and keep to their work, are workmen that need not be ashamed. And what is their work? It is rightly to divide the word of truth. Not to invent a new gospel, but rightly to divide the gospel that is committed to their trust. Observe here, 1. The word which ministers preach is the word of truth, for the author of it is the God of truth. 2. It requires great wisdom, study, and care, to divide this word of truth rightly; Timothy must study in order to do this well."
  • FELLY NZEMBA on Nehemiah 8:10
  • Please i have two important questions. I have been having this sort of argument or discussion i might say with a friend about this

    1) If an believer should marry an unbeliever, it states here that the unbeliever becomes sanctified,which also makes their baby sanctified. Sanctification in the context as is in the Hebrew language means being set apart. Does it mean the unbeliever's husband will make it to heaven even without confessing Christ as the lord and Savior?. Also, what about an unbeliever's baby who dies,where would the baby go?

    2) There is this doctrine or whatsoever they call it,that if one is saved, one is saved for life and can never be separated from the father no matter what sin the person commits. Please what is your believe about this with scriptural references.
  • Thembi on Genesis 20
    I am also confused about the adultry in this book, sleeping with your own father, maid etc. Was this acceptable?
  • Jeff jones on Deuteronomy 23:13
    God is practical.
    To think he shared our humanity and all the expressions of human nature and at the same time in human form to contain the fulness of the GODHEAD is something we fail to acknowledge. Who can take this in? Christ the LORD
  • David Warbutton on Jeremiah 10
    I may leave a comment, but ultimately, what did Jesus say? Read Mathew 15:8-14
    8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

    9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

    11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

    12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

    13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

    14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
  • John benson on Mark 5
    question on mark 5-10 why did or did legion ask Christ not to send the demons away? and did legion want the demons in the first place? what was the real roll of legion
  • Chas on Genesis 4:10
    This s the Bible foretelling DNA Evidence....get it?
  • Myron Smith on Hebrews 13
    Concerning Verse 8. Since Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, do you think that if He came to earth today that He would be worshiping on Sunday (the popes day)?God rested on the Sabbath, Jesus, Disciples, Paul, John, and all Bible characters worshiped on the Sabbath (Saturday)and in Isaiah we will worship on the Sabbath in heaven. So ...
  • Joseph Mibei on Revelation 10:10
    Which book of the Bible is this open book?
  • Cindy on Matthew 12:32
    don't understand what is not forgiven. aren't all sins forgiven if you repent and are truly sorry? aren't the father and the son and the holy spirit one in the same?
  • Andy on 1 Samuel 28
    Saul recognized Samuel, so it was not a demon, as some have suggested. Samuel was in the place of the dead, waiting for resurrection and the judgment of the righteous. Saul and offspring were to join Samuel there, as they were to die. God had become Saul's enemy, because Saul had rejected Him, over and over. Deuteronomy 28:63 describes what happens when God's people reject Him over and over: "And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and bring you to nought; and you shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it" Christians in the modern church are a little reluctant to acknowledge that God can punish, as well as reward, but there it is. Final judgment of Saul? Only God knows the answer to that one.
  • Terry M. on Genesis 19
    I'm just imagining what Lot must have been feeling by the end of this chapter. I'm picturing this family running for their lives. Sprinting! Lot and his wife hand in hand. He probably says something like "Baby,don't let go of my hand nomatter what" and reminds her that they can't look back. They all began to sprint away! Big exploding meteors steaming toward the city behind them. Then, hearing the loudest explosion, she looks back. In Lot's hand, a handful of rock-salt. But stars are still falling behind him. He has to keep running. No time to grieve now. What went through his head at that moment? That's the image that I get from this chapter.
  • Timothy on Luke 13
    There are some wonderful revelations again in this chapter.But, the verse i am commenting on is verse 16.Jesus said, the devil bound the woman with an infirmity for 18 years.I wonder why the devil would just specialise in wickedness.Why did the devil did this to this woman?.Was this woman aware that satan was the one behind the scene?The audience that were complaining, were they aware of the source of this woman problem.Christians need to learn how to pilot their challenges with prayers. Satan stages battles against any one in order to put all under a perpectual dominion.
  • Andrew on Jeremiah 40
    Is Johanan plot justifiable to save Gedaliah? Or Gedaliah naivete to blame for the tragedy? Or must Jeremiah, the mouth piece of God, be consulted?
  • Tim on Luke 2
    Notice besides parents the only people that knew about the birth are shepherds. Where was the mayor! Where were the religious leaders? The ruling body? You would think the brass would be there to see The King born. verse 18 says all that heard "wondered" just like today! People today still "wonder" about That Birth. God KNEW those would not believe. What a Savior we have in The Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Mike on James 5:12
    I believe we as Christians should not have to swear any Oath unless it is to our Lord and God. On earth a Christians word should be enough to where we should not have to swear any Oath.Once you swear a certain oath, then you are accountable for that oath even if the people over what you swore is doing wrong, you become part of the wrong doing. Just my thoughts? Anyone have a different view?
  • Rev. Autrey on Malachi 2:10
    Verse 10: "Are we not all children of the same Father? Are we not all created by the same God?"

    When we understand that the personality through whom God always speaks to us is Jesus, this verse becomes clear. Jesus is the Father spoken of here. We see this in Acts 8:4-5 where God answered Paul's question, "Who are you Lord," by saying "I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting."

    We must remember that Paul was a devout Jew. And he never would have considered any other God except YHWH Father God. Yet, this God identified himself as Jesus the Son.

    You will not understand or believe this if you do not ask God to help you. Ask him and he will!

    As a note: God has two other personalities: The personality of "The Father" is the way God directs his affairs, but he never speaks to us this way. Jesus said of him, "You have never heard his voice or seen him face to face."

    The perswonality of the Holy Spirit is the way God inspires us to believe in what he is doing. That is, he helps us to understand that Jesus is the way God speaks to, and that this is true from everlasting to everlasting.

    May God bless you.
  • Rev. Autrey on Hebrews 1
    Verse 8: "But to his Son he says, 'Your throne, O God, entures forever and ever. ...'"

    When we understand that the God of the Old Testament is Jesus this verse makes perfect sense. This is Jesus talking about himself. That is, he is saying that when he comes into the world to bear our sins he will call himself "the Son." So the Son and God are one and the same. If this is not so, then we have two Gods, and this can never be.

    Further proof of this is seen in verse 10 where it says of the Son, "Lord (God), in the beginning you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands." Dosen't it say in John 1:3 that Jesus created everything there is, and that nothing exists that he didn't make?

    What we are talking about is personality. God has three distinct personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. But the personality through whom God always speaks to us is the Son Jesus. So what these verses are telling us is that the Son is God, or the way God speaks to us, and the way God made everything there is.

    God bless you for considering this!
  • Prophet on Acts 22
    Paul is driven to do his job as a Roman he followed the Law to the letter. To even stand-by and participate in the stoning of Stephen the Apostle. He did not know The Christ-he ask; "Who are you, Lord?" This is the same question, we ask today. So in his infinite Wisdom The Christ chose Paul-knowing he would do all he was asked to do in His Name. When you hear His Voice; DO as Saul has show us; be driven to share the message of The Christ with all the spiritually 'blind and lost' of our generation.
  • Eaglesrock on 2 Timothy 2
    Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Do you want Gods approval? STUDY!
  • Darren Lewis Stubbs on Psalms 11
    What a previledge to be a child of god knowing that he always have my best interest at heart.I thank god for opening my eyes to keep his commandments always, for truly if the foundations be destroyed what really can the righteous do?
  • Juan Quezada on Genesis 3
    In verse 14 says that snakes shall eat dust all the days of thy life. To my knowlege snakes do not eat dust. Why? If the bible was correct, snakes would be eating dust. I find this to be false. Eating dust means eating dust and snakes do not eat dust.
