    Question

    Who urged us to be doers of the word, not only hearers?

    and why?
  • Robert - in Reply on Ezekiel 37
    In reply to Elder Herman Broxton and Chris

    Reasons why OT matters

    History of God's chosen people

    Apostacy of the Church

    Not to be legalistic

    Forgiveness and generosity taught

    God wants to be involved in our lives

    Different types of prayer

    Teaches us how to worship

    Man's desire to be stiff necked and rebellious

    Prophecy some for the latter days; some of a better covenant

    Fortells the coming of Christ

    Why the Messiah was rejected

    Reasons for the New Testament

    In the Messiah's words

    The Comforter or Holy Ghost explained

    A better covenant (a direct link to God; Jesus as the intersessor, HG as the teacher and guide, the Word written upon mankinds heart)

    Grace

    Freely given, paid for, open to all who ask and seek

    Warnings of false prophets and doctrines

    Notes: the New Testament wasn't written or formulated until 60 years after Christ's death, resurrection and ascension but people claim the Old Testament is irrelevant (i.e. "Nailed to the Cross").

    The Bible was not canonized until 1611.

    Before that some prophecies were still being fulfilled (i.e. destruction of Tyre). Many prophecies still are future. (i.e. restoration of Israel, 2nd Coming, resurrections).

    We are no longer in the dark ages. The Bible is more available to all than it has ever been. The internet connects the world like never before. False prophets and doctrines occur at a ridiculous pace (i.e. Another prophecy from both Testaments).

    Yet mankind still persists, our way is better than God's.

    Read it for yourself. Use the resources mentioned above. Don't trust anyone's interpretation but the HG's. Devotionals or doctrines that treat the Bible like a bag of trail mix seem wrong (i.e. Isn't that how this started? Hasn't it continued ever since?).

    Grace, not legalism. The Lord wants a relationship with all and all to be reborn.

    May your journey be fruitful, full of joy, and may you be counted worthy of the Creator's kingdom.

    Blessings and Prayers
  • Amber Burke on Mark 5
    Jesus tells us that we are asleep, when we die. he will come and resurrect us. So , why do people believe that their loved ones are in heaven, when they are asleep? You cant be in Heaven ,if he is coming to resurrect us..
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on John 6:53
    Revelation 13 has your answer.
  • Julie on 1 John 1
    1 John 1 establishes Jesus as God. Thou which was from the beginning... In the beginning was the word. Genesis 1.1 Christ is the word in the flesh who gives eternal life to all who believe in Him. Emmanuel, God with us. The disciples asked to see God, and Jesus replied "Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? "

    Why do so many believe He is not God when it is written in His word? How can one expect admittance to heaven that do not believe Jesus is God and call themselves a Christian?

    It is written in Matthew "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Confess Jesus as God. If His word is not in us the saving message of Christ has not taken root. Read your Bible and understand.

    The Son, the second person in the Trinity, has a l w a y s e x i s t e d with the Father. God sent the light of the world, Jesus. We are called to walk with God in the light (for only he is without sin and we will never be on par with Him) our purpose includes us to confess our sins and follow the commandments.

    Pray to Jesus to forgive both sins you know you did and those you're not sure you did-that would cover your dreams or half second wrong thoughts. Work toward being the love of God perfected by keeping His commandments.

    Understand now what His love for you is, love and forgive one another as you would want Him to do for you.

  • Just chatting with us watchmen - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    I was searching things in the Blank Search Box one day. I don't know why, but I typed in 'China'. The search database knows these scriptures concern Chinese interests.

    They concern pandemics. There are 3. So I googled a list of all past pandemics with World death counts. It goes way back in history. Quite unsettling to read. CDC confirms it. Some pandemics were due to "swine flu". Corona virus evolves into more dangerous forms.

    You'll have to Google because I'm not sure if it was this year or 2019? President Trump put sanctions on China exporting pork that is infected with swine flu. They got caught trying to smuggle in a million pounds of infected pork in January.

    Corrupt business buys their cheap meat and sells it to Americans; then China pays high prices to the US to have non-infected meat imported there. I hope Trump stopped the entire process? Ignorance is bliss. I don't want to think about it. I hope Jesus will return soon.

    We take so many things for granted. That everything is safe that we put in our grand babies mouths. I've got everyone praying over food at my place. We've got to be wise and also be full of faith. Trust in God implicitly. Do the do's, and stop doing the don'ts.

    I just heard (no joking) the Holy Spirit singing "I walk The Line" by Johnny Cash.

    So I jet over to YouTube to have a singalong. There was a comment "is anyone else up at 2am listening to Johnny sing?" (during the co-vid crisis?). Many comments by Christians! It's so cool. John wrote that song to God!

    I can't wait to get to Heaven!!!

    Sinning is so hopeless when you compare it to eternity with all, and who is in heaven. Why would you want to miss out?

  • Chris - in Reply on Nehemiah 4
    "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." Matthew 5:11,12.

    "And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name." Acts 5:41.

    There are many today suffering or being persecuted around the world for their beliefs. Christians in those parts have learned how to live under such repressive systems & take it patiently; actually there's not much else that they can do. In the West, we barely get a sense of this now as generally Judeo-Christian principles are well established, though even these are constantly eroded, as we see it affecting education, discipline, removal of Christian values & teaching in favour of atheistic/humanistic based teachings. We easily & quickly complain that 'our faith is being attacked' when society has had to fall in line with recent governmental restrictions. I wonder how these same folk will handle some real 'attacks to their faith' as Satan goes into higher gear with his thrusts into our already compromised governmental mentality & systems. How will Christians behave & live in an increasingly anti-christian society?

    Would our response be as the Lord encouraged his disciples: to rejoice in their sufferings & persecutions - to rejoice & be exceeding glad for their heavenly reward would be great? Or will we complain with more gusto? Maybe to consider some of the other believers' suffering today might help us get a better perspective for today & preparation for tomorrow.

    Thank you Mark for that reminder from Nehemiah 4:14: "Be not afraid - remember the Lord".

  • Carmelo on Matthew 10
    Hello! I have a reoccurring question, do we repent of our sins to be saved or repent because we are saved? I know in the book of Corinthians Paul talks about how the adulterous, fornicators, etc will not inherit the kingdom, thank you and God bless!
  • T. Levis - in Reply on 2 Samuel 21
    To add to my comment, I hope the previous comment was clearly understood for that specific section of scripture referenced. However if you were trying to study David's decisions that looked 'cowardice' or atleast appearance of.

    1 Samuel 27 ,

    2 Samuel 11

    2 Samuel 15:14-37

    Hope that's helpful in your studies
  • Howard algeo on Philippians 4:6
    who did God take to heaven without dying?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    It's like a conversation I had with my mother 6 months before she died. She never read her Bible. I just asked her one day, "aren't you even curious about your Savior you are going to be living with forever? And the wonders of heaven where you'll be living?

    Next day I see her at the table reading her Bible. Read it for over an hour. Became a part of her routine. She asked questions about when she'd see her parents and others who had died. If tell her about what Jesus likes. They need our participation to get them started. I read Psalms to her.

    I'll see her again. :)

  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    Bible reading & Church attendance are not criteria for entrance to Heaven: only your faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross as your sin bearer & the Recipient of the penalty you (and I) rightly deserved. And through your acknowledgement of this & subsequent repentance of sins, the Spirit of God enters your life to give you a re-birth experience & a holiness & acceptability to God.

    In my understanding, after such an experience & encounter with a Holy, Merciful God, it behoves us to want to know Him and love Him more. And the chief ways of doing so is by attending to His Word, fellowship with the saints, & enjoying prayerful intimacy with Him.

    However, there are some who believe that "now I'm saved, I can do what I like". However, salvation is proven by a heart & mind change & remembering that "your body is (now) the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." (1 Corinthians 6:19,20). Every blessing Don, as you consider this matter & the great cost that was made to redeem your spirit back to a loving God.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 82
    Psalms 82 seems very plain to understand. Who are the "mighty" & who are the "gods" (v 1)?

    The answer is clearly given in the succeeding verses: they are the unjust judges, who as 'gods', have been given the authority to administer justice as the One & Holy God does. But these 'gods' will "shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes." (v 7) because of their wickedness in administering justice.

    What are you seeing here?
  • M Fridy - in Reply on John 1
    How can we relate 2 Samuel 12:8 with today's modern time.

    Go back and get my such and such? Does this mean what the Lord has for me its for all I have to do is ask him for

    whatever I want as long as I am in his Will?

    John 3:16

    Mathew 7:22-27

    Mathew 25:31-46

    However there is blessing in reading HIS Word

    2 Timothy 2:15

    Psalms 1:1-3

    Psalms 119:105

    I'm from the USA, here we can freely buy, read, distribute & discuss the Bible, however In other countries I've heard testified people suffer death, imprisonment & horrible challenges just to take part in any of those. Some were trying to get 1 book into hands of churches overseas. I guess my question to you, is: to have the privilege to read or not read a collection of books written for benefit, life, guidance, wisdom (that others risk death to read) why not?
  • Praise The Lords Mighty Power Always - in Reply on Psalms 127
    Because your question concerns dealings with a Church you attend and the money you and others gave to it:

    Did the Church understand what the money was for?

    Did they agree the use of church property for this project? Was anything written down?



    Did they accept the intentions of the parishioners that the money would be used to install a computer lab onsite of Church property?

    Can you produce receipts of what each individual gave to the project?

    The attorneys at ACLJ.org may be able to advise you, what your legal rights are. They may be able to provide legal counsel in your area, if there is enough of a paper trail to establish intent or fraud.

    I'm not an attorney. Go to ACLJ.org website to get their phone numbers, and you can present your facts. Find out if there is a legal recourse.

    If this can't be resolved, you need to proceed under a banner of forgiveness; and dependence on the Lord to help you. It's going to test your faith. Have faith in God.

    Where I live, some of the YMCA's are assembling computer labs. Check with Goodwill. I do not know what their requirements are. I'm sure it's not a child-sitting service. Ask around and find out ideas of how other people are handling this. "Home Schooling" has to meet State standards as far as grades and tests; requirements.

    It was a 'group' Effort that began this, and it needs to stay that way. Don't bear this burden alone. Everybody has a vested interest. Lastly, pray at every step you take. (All of you). Commit the entire project to God, First, and proceed from there. Listen for His voice. Learn Spiritual Warfare. Ephesians 6.

    Don't let anybody stomp on your dreams.

    Trust God. Read a KIng James Version Bible for yourself. Read in Psalms & Proverbs, all the troubles King David had with everybody!

    He always looked to God for his help.

    Protect your faith.

    I pray the Lord will undertake and undergird this group effort to do something good for the children. Jesus Bless.
