  • Carrie L Moore on Revelation 19:16
    what s that mean?
    on his vesture:King of all kings
    on his thigh: Lord of all lords
    Is right or what?
  • Moby on John 3:23
    "Who exactly came and was baptized?"
    This verse sits amidst reference to Jesus and his disciples, and they are intercommunicating (sendiing messages re their whereabouts).
    Did John the Baptist baptize Jesus ("who came")?
  • There are 2 different uses of tongues. One is a prayer language and the other is a gift that should have interpretation to follow if done in the church Ephesians 14:2, 4. Verse 18, Paul says, "I thank God, I speak with tongues more than ye all." Tongues were for a sign of receiving the Holy Ghost. It has NEVER been done away with. If this is the belief, then where is "That which is perfect"? Ephesians 13:9 clearly says, "For now we know in PART and we prophecy in PART, But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away". I personally know that I do not know God as I am known by Him...yet! That which is perfect, is The perfect love that we must have for all Godís creation. We are still very divided in our beliefs and that tells me that which is "perfect" has certainly not come yet. I would suggest a word study on the word "perfect" in the King James Bible; of course, to find out what God means by perfect and perfection. We are NOT yet there and we have a long way to go.
  • Suzanne on Proverbs 18
    VERSE 1---NOT SURE IF I READ THIS CORRECTLY: THROUGH DESIRE--AS IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN-TEMPTATION?? HAVING SEPARATED HIMSELF--DOES THIS MEAN SEPARTING HIMSELF FROM GOD??? SEEKETH AND INTERMEDLETH WITH ALL WISDOM--DOES THIS MEAN HAVING KNOWLEGE OF GOOD AND EVIL?
  • Mark on Acts 1
    In the name of Jesus does NOT mean in the "family" of Jesus,

    In Acts 3,16 Peter the Apostle clearly states that, his name (what is his name? Jesus) through faith in his name,

    He also states that it was the crippled mans own individual faith by which he was healed,

    Not by Peter's power or holiness or of those with him, Acts 3,12
  • Mark on Acts 1
    Read John 3,16
    Read Acts 11, 17-18
    Peter the Apostle admitted,
    Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.

    Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?

    We do not have to be baptized with water to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost, We need to believe, We do not have to have an "Apostle" to administer the baptism of the Holy Ghost, We need to believe,

    Read Acts 3,12-16
    Peter himself (the Apostle) admitted that it was not through his own power or holiness that made the man walk,
    and admitted,
    And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
    We need to believe,
  • David on John 4
    How does this Samaritan woman who admits of no dealing between her people and Jewish (sic Judean) people know and believe the Jewish expectation about the coming of messiah and his powers?

    I think it's more a case of a Samaritan Jewess knowing the expectations all too well but that the author forgets that she isn't supposed to know about this particular Messiah (Jesus) yet because the mission has barely got started!

    I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Christians would understand this to mean 'Christ the Messiah' and therein lies the mistake, whereas in fact it is an innocent if redundant tautology; 'Messiah(Greek) the Messiah(Hebrew) which doesn't need to be spoken at all if the woman only knows of the expectation. If on the other hand she had in fact got wind of the claim earlier than most she would more likely have spoken of 'the Nazerene Messiah'.
  • Jewel on Exodus 20
    @Practice Banda
    What day is the Sabbath? the Sabbath is the 7th day, which is Saturday. Sunday being the 1st day of the week Saturday the 7th. Not only for the Jews, the Sabbath provided for man at creation in Genesis before the Jews were a chosen people. The Sabbath is for all Commandment keepers of God. also read Revelation, Christ is coming back for those who Keep the Commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ
  • Steven on Ephesians 6:18
    I think the phrase "in the Spirit" would be more uniquely meaningful if rendered "in (the) spirit". Meaning, our human spirit. For this is where we contact God. God is not only "in" our spirit but also "mingled" with it: "He who is joined to the Lord is on spirit". When interpreted in this way it removes all question of how to pray in "the Spirit", which, properly, would be interpreted as in The Spirit of God; i.e. the Holy Spirit. It should be obvious that we must be in The Spirit when we pray but the issue is this: where is that, specificall, and how do we enter there or, for that matter, how do we know when we are there?
  • Lorenza on Daniel 12
    There is a verse in the bible that I thought I read at some point. The verse talks about kings, princes, etc., being dug up from the earth by generations to come... Do you know where I can find this verse?
  • Bro. Daniel FC on Galatians 5
    @ Anne
    Hi Anne, can you explain how you understand Galatians 5 verse 19? I am sure we can all learn something from a 12 year young girl. Thanks.
  • Scott on Genesis 3
    I'm a little confused, why did God tell adam and eve not to eat of the tree of knowledge? If god is all powerful surely he could stop anyone he wanted from eating from it?
    The answer to this could be that he wanted to keep free will as a factor, but again god is omnipotent so he could make it so they had free will and also didn't eat the fruit?

    When they did eat from the tree of knowledge, shouldn't that be according to gods plan as nothing is outwith his knowledge or power?
    So if his plan was to make Adam and eve eat the fruit anyway, why not just make them?
  • Dan on 1 John 1:9
    Are we to confess our sins simply by talking to God privately in prayer or rather, by confessing to a priest of God?
    I believe that, confession in this context means both. Glory be to God for His Grace.
  • Paul on Romans 10:9
    Are you saved NOW in the present tense or at the 2nd Coming of Christ Jesus? And if you are saved NOW in the present tense, can you lose your salvation?
  • Ros on Proverbs 9
    I say, why ask God for something that we already have in Christ and with the Holy Spirit? Isaiah 11:2 If we have the same spirit, and just as He was so are we in this world, and the same works that He did so shall we also and greater. We should rather learn who we are in Him first, what He has already given us, and ask how do I use what I already have to your Glory and the benefit of those you send us....
  • Teresa Nave on Exodus 2
    Where can I find the story of the two mothers fighting over a child and the mother that truly loved the baby forfeited the child so he/she would not be split?
  • Madeya on Matthew 6
    verse 33,
    its all about what i am in the Kingdom,how i dedicate myself to God my King,do i care that He is everything in my life? Do i put in my mind that He is the Master planner of everything i do? i should preach the word in season or out of season for the Name of Jehovah to be exalted in me and other who do His will all time
  • Duncan L on Romans 12
    This passage is all about maturity in the knowledge of the Most High GOD because the Psalmist asked in chapter 119 verse 9 of Psalms , how can young man keep his way pure? By living according to his word. Really its to live according to words amen.
  • Brenda ragsdale on Acts 12
    in chapter 12 verse 4. where it says 'AND DELIVERED HIM TO FOUR QUATERNIONS OF SOLDIERS TO KEEP HIM;INTENDING AFTER EASTER....... ok, i know the jews and te christians at the time of Lukes writeing acts that they did not celebrate EASTER and EASTER did not exist. was this translation by the king james version of the bible useing the name EASTER because the english language didnt have a word for PECHACH or PASCHA hebrew and greek for passover. could this not lead to erronouse use of easter for passover ? Is this the only verse in the Bible where the word EASTER is used ? this could be confussing to some could it not ?
  • Watcher on Genesis 9
    Anil m's Who are you to question God?? The problem with people is they put thier own understanding to the Bible. Thats wrong! it says what it says and also warns about changing 1 thing. God said that man would eat meat, thats it finished God Spoke.
  • Clay on Proverbs 26:20
    If people could understand that sometimes just letting things go is the easiest way to stop strife and contention.How many arguments are kept going simply because neither party will just keep silent?
  • Toni on Romans 12
    Romans chapter 12 is a profound and powerful chapter. God's word enlightens, chastens, uplifts and strengthens the people of God. Romans 12:16 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly.... Have you ever picked up the dirt from the earth? Place it in your hand and blow on it. It literally disappears in a blink of an eye. That's why we should not think highly of ourselves. We are nothing but dust. Dust we are and dust we shall return. Instead, we are to humble ourselves before God, as Christ humbled Himself and took on sinful flesh to condemn sin in the flesh. We should have Christ's spirit dwelling in us that we be able to walk in this present world without going after the world and all the things Satan is offering. Remember, he offered all the kingdoms to Jesus if He would just bow. Jesus refused. Just as we too must refuse.
  • Bob Wunderlich on John 8:37
    John 8:37 is a very strange verse. If you are "the seed of Abraham" then you are a Christian. This verse only makes sense with one correct understanding. Without this understanding, this verse is impossible. It cannot be true. Want to know the understanding? Give me an email....
  • Zan Hardesty on 1 Corinthians 12
    If God is real than his spirit, his christ within, is in all humans. Jews, Gentiles, Muslims, slaves, black white red yellow, advanced, Stone Age.... any all humans are members of the body. a benevolent god would not select only a few chosenS group, that you have to, by chance, be born into. so all humans have Spirit n we seek our true nature n purpose buy whatever spiritual means. most religions even that through time, all say just do the next right thing and get out of self. I'm not a Christian though I was raised hard shell Southern Baptist, as one counselor told me, you've been poisoned religiously. oh well, still find lots of useful material in New Testament. R there any Bible scholars out there, did i interpret correctly? ent
  • Tarry on Genesis 15
    The Judgement of Nations? Who will suffer Greater, a free country that rejects the Truth, or a country with leaders that reject the Truth. Also Judgement is good when the Truth is sought and those that find it and are directed by it.
  • John lebeoa on John 1:1
    jesus is the 'word';"before your great ancestor abraham was born,i was there".through jesus(word) the world was created. meaning, he was there before Adam too.the question is; if the son is the 'word',is that mean the father is the 'thought'? (because the 'word' comes out from the 'thought'.)
  • Edward Harris on Leviticus 18
    Verse 22. Says it all. Man can do whatever he wants for political or other expediencies but in the sight of Yahweh it is wrong, Choose you this day who you will serve! Man or El? Amen!!!
  • Keaton on Genesis 2
    Is it in the realm of possibility that Adam and Eve were in Eden for longer than we usually think? What if they had an entire civilization going when Eve took the fruit? They could have been in Eden for hundreds of years, seeing as there was no death. That would explain why Cain was worried that someone would kill him if they knew him, and where he got his wife.
  • Brian Johnson on Leviticus 19:28
    Verses to consider.
    Isaiah 49:15 and 16
    (15) "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!
    (16) See, I [God] have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.
    Revelation 19:16
    On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
  • Brian Johnson on Leviticus 19:28
    Leviticus 19 also forbids wearing two mixed materials on the body (cotton/poly blend); Sewing seeds of a different kind next to each other; eating things with blood (filet medium rare or rare); and shaving around your head. For those who want to condemn tattoos (which weren't even called tatoos in Bible times)I would ask Do you eat steak medium rare, do you wear poly? Do you plant corn next to beans? Be careful of the judgments you lay on others. Read Matthew 23 to see how Jesus felt about the Pharisees doing that.
