    Remember the simplicity and let it free you.

    Salvation comes by the grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

    Grace ?....a gift from God, undeserved.

    Faith ?....read the Bible....and your faith grows

    Christ Jesus.... who said I am the Way, the Truth, the Life and no-one comes to the Father except through me.

    Forget about Churches they're ALL fakes and infiltrated....ALL.

    I walk alone, with Jesus Christ.

    I have been with Him for 40 years.

    Talk to Him ( pray) and read the Bible EVERY DAY...and you're way ahead already.

    Amen.
  • WHAT DOES GOD LOOK LIKE - in Reply on Luke 14:26
    God is Spirit. There are MANY scriptures on God being seen. If you read it slowly, you will see the description is in imagery.

    Go get some pen & paper and write down these scriptures; then you can read them and picture God in your heart when you pray.

    John 1:18, John 6:46, John 5:37

    1
    John 4:12, 1 John 3:6, 1 John 4:20

    1
    Timothy 1:17, 1 Timothy 6:16

    Luke 1:31-32, Matthew 22, Romans 1:20

    Philippians 2, Hebrews 1:1-13,

    Colossians 1:15

    Deuteronomy 4:12, 15. Exodus 3:6

    Exodus 33:20-23

    Isaiah 38:11, Isaiah 64:4

    Job 9:11, Job 35:14, Job 23:8

    This is a ps from me: if you have "pictures of God" (some artist imagined) in your home? You need to get rid of them,

    According to Exodus 20. That's not a photograph of God and is considered to be a graven image. Crosses on the wall is ok, but not images.

    I have 1 still life painting of a bowl of fruit and a pitcher of water. It makes me think of eating a meal with Jesus.

  • Mishael on BIBLE TRACT ministry - in Reply on Genesis 10
    I'm an old street preacher too. Lately I have noticed unique ways people distribute Chick Tracts and others:

    Outside of a goodwill store I saw one on top of a trash can. Looked brand new. First I almost wept because someone threw away Gods Word. Got in my car and was praying out the pain; and I saw someone throw paper in the can and pick up the tract and take it with them.

    I see tracts on the sidewalk (out of the foot traffic somewhat) and people pick them up!!

    I've seen them on park or bus benches.

    I know street ministry is still alive and well!

    Almost everyone will read a Chick comic type booklet. They're inexpensive too.

    I know they pray over them and ask God to lead people to them. He is the Lord of the Harvest! I hope more people will do this.

    There's even space on it to write your Church's name and address on it.

    Then be praying for your Pastor to hear from God every time he prays and gets his sermon ready for whatever day your Church chooses to assemble on.

    Makes me think of John 3:8

    The wind Blows where it listeth , and Thou hearest the sound thereof, but cannot tell where it comes from or where it goes; so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

    All of us older folks should bless the church teens with what they need to spread some love around the neighborhood; if the Church will allow it.

  • Chris - in Reply on James 1
    Greg, again, I appreciate your ongoing comments here & fully realize & accept that we both have our own understanding on this matter basing it on the Word.

    I think that you will agree that there are many things in the Word that are either not fully explained or require us to make inferences to try & bring together: especially on eschatology, to which there are numerous divergent opinions, many of them well supported. So, my issue is not whether a believer chooses to keep Saturday as their day of rest & worship, to the exclusion of any other day; my concern is to the ramifications of that belief, i.e. if a Saturday (Sabbath) is not recognized, then what is the result to the believer & before God?

    Colossians 2:16: "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days". So, it seems clear that 'in Christ', the believer is free to do a number of things, including appointing his worship day & this should not be a cause for judgement or division. "All are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ". When in ministry in Pakistan, believers there were compelled to have Friday as their day of worship, simply because of the Muslim holy day & generally people worked for six days in the week. This felt strange at first, but it was after all a day set aside to worship the true God & an opportunity to minister. We could have refused to do so, saying that only the Sabbath or a Sunday is holy & to be observed. So I ask, what then are the implications to those who don't keep the Sabbath, just as I have mentioned to those who insist on it (Galatians 3:10-12)? Is it just another sin that is to be repented of, or a divider of those who are granted eternal life & those who are rejected?

    I can't get into the 'solar calendar' argument: in the light of my understanding, the actual days are unimportant for worship & it would only lead to a strange observance of days given the calendars we now need to abide with.

    Kathy F. The Most High calls us a treasure. You are a treasure and a precious gem to HIM. When you've received a gift is it on display or is it neatly wrapped with a beautiful ribbon. How do you dress if you were going to have dinner with the president? How would you dress if you were going to have dinner with some one you respected and looked up to. You would dress with respect for yourself respect for the person whom you're having dinner with. Let the holy spirit teach you how to dress. I've never seen a princess running around half naked. You don't have to dress like every one else modesty is beautiful!!!!
  • Greg - in Reply on James 1
    Chris,

    I appreciate your comments and thoughts on this matter.

    The many different views and ideas that come from this type of discussion are valuable to the overall understanding of Scripture.

    I will leave you with this concerning the Seventh Day vs. the First Day.

    I will hold to my understanding that if God or Jesus wanted us to change His day of rest, They would have made it abundantly clear. Correct interpretation of Scripture will justify a position. Any application to other thoughts or ideas may be welcome, but it cannot alter the interpretation. Inference is not the best way to justify a position. I have to remind myself of this all the time.

    If Christ foretold us ALL THINGS (Mark 13:23), why did He not clearly explain this changing of the 7th day to us as everything else we needed to know was.

    Acts 18:4 can be used as an example that after Christ died, and rose from the dead, Paul was continually teaching in the synagogues on every Sabbath day, to both Greeks and Jews.

    I believe that there is no particular day in which you worship more than any other day. That is a 7 day a week plan.

    I believe that one day out of seven (the 7th day) the body should rest (as per instruction by our heavenly Father).

    According to our current (Gregorian) 365 day calendar, the days slide (so to speak). For instance, your birthday might be on a Monday this year, but will slide to Tuesday (or possibly Wednesday) the following year.

    So then, technically, this year's Sunday was last year's Saturday.

    Is it Sunday because we are told so?

    Among the findings of the Dead Sea Scrolls was the book of Enoch.

    The book of Enoch contains the priestly Solar Calendar (ch. 72, 82). It is a 364 day calendar based on 52 seven day weeks.

    It is a perfect solar priestly calendar used by the Israelites for thousands of years. This amazing calendar resets every year.

    The DSS are a wealth of (seemingly untapped) information for Biblical students.

  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    I remember at one time in Karachi, Pakistan, my team were out on our daily book sales & tract distribution to Muslims. I wasn't having a good day, so thought to try for a sale at a bookshop. The owner was so interested in my literature, he bought my whole shoulder bag full of books & tracts! So, I went back to the team empty-handed & with praise for what the Lord had done. But, the Lord's Ways were beyond my limited sight at that time. On my way back from that sale, I turned around for some reason & noticed that that wasn't an ordinary bookshop, but was one attached to a Mosque & the central point for the sale of Islamic literature. Had I been aware of this fact, I would have quickly retreated, but the Lord had other plans for me & them. So, the Lord in His Providence had directed me to a Mosque to sell Christian books, they bought everything, they then sold those books unknowingly to other Muslims responding to the call for prayer (i.e. they helped in getting out the Word when I couldn't), & there may well be lost souls now finding the Saviour's Love. Jeremiah 32:27: "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?" What an amazing God we serve, Who just needed a pair of hands & legs to get His Word out to those appointed to Life. And a little 'icing on the cake': I got out of there with my life & He also answered our prayers that morning as we had all but run out of cash to survive.

    What the Lord can do with His trusting children!"

    Awesome! Have you ever wrote this down in article form- like 2 to 5 pages long? I would love to send this out to my email-blast readers in Ohio and beyond. I try to encourage people to share their faith. Most are not risking their lives adn should be willing to share the gospel with those around them but 98% do not share their faith regularly.

    "Hi Robert, good to catch up again. I fully realize that we all have many commitments so wasn't expecting any responses, though I had thought about you in the interim & trusted the Lord that you were well. So thanks for the added comments & no, I haven't heard of David Wood - will check him out.

    I could use prayer for stomach problems and back. Found out I was born with a mild form of spina bifida and now understand why I started dealing with back issues as early as my early-30's. I will be 53 soon. Prayers appreciated. I do believe God still heals. He did heal me of a problem in my early walk. David's ministry is called Acts17apologetics. he has almost 500,000 subscribers now. maybe you can team up with him on evangelism. He does debates also.

    I'm sure you too have many great stories to tell in your encounters with those of other faiths. And all these are not to bring us into the limelight, but all praise to the Lord Who superintends our ways.

    My best stories were in my youth. I hit the streets with gospel tracts when I was 16 with two other hippies at that time. People were so much more receptive back then. Hearts are getting hard with many. It's cool when the Holy Spirit shows up with a divine appointment or you get a word of knowledge. I've been doing most of my evangelism online for about 10 years now. Built a 12 x 6 cross in 2007 that we went around with. that was interesting. "Hey, Jesus didn't have a wheel." It opened up doors as people came to you. My zeal isn't where it was when I was younger in the Lord. I want thta back. I think about, "Why bother anymore? People don't care about the things of God or care to repent and come to Christ" and then I think what if Jesus had that attitude int he Garden of Gethsemane? I guess I and maybe you too don't always feel like sharing the gospel but we must press on even on the days we dont' feel like it. Pray for me for more zeal.

  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 4:13
    Sheila, I'm unsure whether you are referring to Hebrews 11:1:

    "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

    This is one of the great descriptions of Faith in the Bible. To explain this: the words 'substance' & 'evidence' (in that verse) tell us about things we can physically see or can be proven without any doubt. So what you have around your home or with family members are all real & seeing them doesn't require any faith from you.

    What happens when you've planned to go on a holiday? The holiday hasn't happened yet, but you are hoping that nothing will stop you going. Is this faith? No, it's still only a hope. You could say, "I have faith that it will happen", but if there can be a possibility of it not happening, then it's what we say, is a misdirected faith. Then this awful virus starts up & all your plans are cancelled so you've lost all hope of going on holiday.

    That's what it's like on the Earth: we can hope for something but we really don't know for sure that it will happen for us. But, when the Bible speaks of Hebrews 11 Faith, we see that we can only use it when God gives His Promise for it to happen. So, if you believe that there is a God & a Heaven (both you can't see), then it means that your faith is based on God's Word & not on your sight. This is Real Faith as you believe according to His Word that His Word is sure. Some people also know about God but are uncertain about Him - no faith - no Heaven.

    Noah built a large boat. He may not have seen a flood from rain but still built a strange vessel that seemed of little value & purpose. But he demonstrated faith, because he believed God & trusted God that this vessel would somehow save these few people & animals & a flood would somehow cover the Earth & wipe out all left behind. I hope this explanation helps you understand that Faith is believing (as in, seeing) that something is there or will happen from God's Word, even when there's no evidence for it.

  • Headship in Marriage - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    1 Corinthians 11:3

    But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

    Ephesians 5:23

    For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

    Ephesians 4:15

    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

    COMMENT:

    If both partners are Christians, then the headship indicated in these few verses, show how it works. As the husband follows Jesus, the wife should have no trouble following her husbands lead.

    If there is disagreement, then the two should find scripture to work out a reconciliation.

    If one of you is an unbeliever in Jesus; marriage may difficult at times. It is the witness of the saved partner, and their behavior that may bring the unsaved to believe in Jesus one day.

    1 Corinthians 7 is the marriage chapter. 1 Corinthians 13 is the Love chapter.

    I hope this helps you. Mishael
  • Freewill serving God - in Reply on Ezekiel 3
    1. Acts 2: 38 Repent and believe on Jesus for forgiveness of past sin. Romans 3:25

    James 1: 14, 15 tells us where sin begins; 1 John 3:4 tells us what sin is, it is the transgression (breaking( of the law.

    2. I would like to point out in the old sacrificial system, that on the day of atonement there were 3 things at a minimum that had to be present in order to complete the atonement on the great day of atonement; a sacrifice ;the sanctuary; the High Priest.

    I would like to point out that in Romans 5:11 ...God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement." does not say the Atonement was full or complete.

    Many times it is the case that words have more than 1 meaning and it is the case here as well. While it is possible that it could mean Atonement in the fullest sense of the word which would mean full and complete; it also could mean sacrifice; as in the sacrifice was full; the sacrifice of Jesus was perfect, there was no need of another sacrifice ever because His was all sufficient. Was there an example in the past where someone received atonement; yet it was not the Day of Atonement yet? Many in Leviticus; here is one: Leviticus 5:10 The word atonement was used for purification also Exodus 29:37.

    But in regard to forgiveness and how Jesus blood was applied to our account to forgive our sin; only 1 of the 3 things neccesary were present because there was no True High Priest on earth; the earthly system had been done away with when Jesus died on the cross; Jesus was not a High Priest when on earth Hebrews 8: 4.

    The sanctuary on Earth was but a copy of the real one in Heaven Hebrews 9:1; Exodus 15:17.

    Why did Jesus go to heaven immediately upon resurection? John 20: 17 Tells us the he went, but why?

    To apply his literal blood to the real temple in Heaven, just as Moses sanctified the Sanctuary in the OT; Leviticus 4 :6; 8: 24 Read all of Leviticus 8 and see how the service of the Sanctuary was purified for service as well as the priests.

  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 2:10
    Olivia, I believe you're referring to a comment initiated by Maryann a couple of months ago. If that is the case, I was addressing the matter of non-violence & non-retaliation, as prescribed in God's Word. Take time to read the following Scriptures: Matthew 5:38-44; Luke 6:27-38; and Romans 12:14-21.

    So, these portions of Scripture tell us how Christians are to behave or respond when trouble comes our way. However, we should do all in our power to protect ourselves, our children & our property from wicked perpetrators. But what the Bible teaches is that we must not go on the attack, or repay evil with evil, or in any way do what Christ would not do. The only ones empowered by God to pronounce judgement & give out a penalty is the government. Often even they don't administer it correctly, but that is another matter.

    Maybe your question is: "then how can we protect ourselves?" Are we talking about the authorities under instruction from an anti-Christian govt. coming to take you & your children because of your faith? Then I doubt neither you nor I could do much at all given their position & strength. We need to submit & trust God for the outcome. Or else, what would be your plans to oppose them? Using a gun? How far would that get you against the police or army?

    But if you're thinking of a criminal breaking into your house or accosting you on the street, then you are authorized by law to protect yourself, but restricted by the amount of force used. Then again, how does one know what crime is intended to be committed? Does any of this help you, or have I missed your point?

    Always remember that Satan is the big, I WILL, out there looking for someone to agree and cave in to sin against your own body, or God.

    Jesus was turned into human rubble before the Cross. He did that for you! You've accepted Him as your Savior. Ought you to make Him the Lord over you, your choices?

    Your heart is a Throne. Either Jesus sits on it; or you do. Every single day we make a choice to walk with Him or run headlong into trouble.

    1 John 1:9 is where you run to for times when fall out of step with Jesus. The Holy Spirit is your Helper; Teacher of scripture and about Jesus; your Comforter when you are lonely or hurt.

    We all make mistakes, even me. That's why we run to the Cross to embrace the one who gave His Life for us. He also rose out of His Tomb and was Resurrected to Life everlasting. We can have that too as we live a new way as a Christian and a follower of Jesus.

    Don't listen to Mr I Will anymore. He's going to hell real soon.

    Pray to Jesus like He's in the room with you.

    Like He's your friend that sticks closer than a brother or sister. If you'll keep yourself filled up on some Bible; you'll see days pile up into months, years, and it will have been worth it all.

    After I was saved, I was doing cartwheels telling all my drunken friends I got saved.

    They wanted me to "have some fun" and go out with them. I asked them to go to church with me. I lost all of those friends. I asked God to give me new friends....and He did!! It was like Acts chapter 1 all the time.

    Your Christian walk can be fun if you pray for the right things.

  • Chris - in Reply on James 1
    Page 1.

    Greg, just to respond to that which you've now raised, instead of re-hashing what I've shared earlier:

    a. if you're referring to Genesis 2:3, then I agree that God rested from His Labours & sanctified that day but it wasn't declared as a Sabbath until the giving of the Law. What Scripture from the OT do you use to support: "This Law was established for ALL to obey and enjoy?"

    b. The 10 Commandments, as God's requirements, can never be abolished: "Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good." (Romans 7:12). It was perfectly fulfilled by Jesus at His Coming & fully discharged at His Death & Resurrection.

    c. I don't follow the 10 Commandments as they don't have any bearing, nor could have, on my Christian life. However, lest you think that I've adopted an antinomian stance, my subjection is not to the Law given to Israel, which only brought death (Romans 7:10,11), but to the Law of the Life-giving Spirit (Romans 8:2).

    d. I fully agree that Jesus, in His Coming, fulfilled OT prophecy & I also agree that Faith without Works is dead. This 'Works' cannot refer to keeping the Law but of other practical evidence of real, saving Faith. However, it is interesting that you quote Galatians 3:11,12. This passage specifically states, from v10, that those who maintain the 'working of the law' in their lives are under a curse as none can obey the Law to the letter; therefore, man cannot be justified by the Law - it is of Faith - and "Christ has come to redeem us from the curse of the Law" (v13). I realize that Paul was referring to possibly the Judaizers who wanted to promote this fusion of Law & Grace which opposed the pure Gospel of Christ, but doesn't it then apply to anyone who wants to support this 'obedience to the Law'?

    13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

    15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

    16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

    17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    I am still awaiting a response from Bob himself. Bob made the comment(s). I await your personal clarification. Not for the sake of an argument but for the sake of understanding, why.

    I believe I do, somewhat, understand your comment, beyond speculation. I've heard it before from many, just as many have. No need to ellaborate as your truth should be easy to speak. Especially if scripture referenced. Truth is love, is it not?

    The Word of God is infallible. Though many, may, use scripture out of its given context, to "show point." Be it similar.? to textual corruption by copyist as declared in KJV KJSB(Numbers 1, page 228) as we see in the NIV and elsewhere. Declaring scripture must always be used is understood and I am thankful for that(those) reference(s). As a true believer in Christ I find it dutiful to also express one's Faith or view, at times, through simple layman's terms and to not seek a scripture that simply seems to fit the point. Or to not "hide" behind scripture.(Please, do Not take this out of context or manipulate it.) In no way shape or form will I discredit any specific scripture that pertains to this topic.

    If you consult the Holy Spirit I believe you will understand the sincerity in my questions to your original post and that my goal is to understand, again, why. I seek to create no abrasion or in any way to begin a debate among anyone. I am sincere in question.

    We are talking about America, specifically.

    Is it as simple as Sodom and Gomorrah? Will we be judged as a nation rather than individuals or am I simply off in my thinking there? Will "Lot" have the chance to remove his family or is he automatically included?

    I look forward to a response so that I may understand why many in the world share this view.

    It's that simple.

    God Bless

    Flat earth? Isaiah 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the CIRCLE circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers;........ a pancake?

    Is the moon also flat? Believe in Jesus and the flat earth and thou shalt be saved?

    Is this something to really argue over?

    Do you really understand what Mormonism is?

    In their Doctrines and Covenants of the Mormon faith they teach that Jesus is the brother of Satan.

    Do you understand that means your savior is the brother of Satan.

    The Bible teaches Jesus created all things, including Satan in

    John 1:3 All things were made by (Jesus) him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    Mormonism is a denial of the King James Bible since Jesus said:

    John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is FINISHED finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

    Mormonism is another testament, another gospel so basically this means it was not finished as the work of Christ.

    Galatians 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    Ask yourself if this means Mormonism is cursed?

    Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel (MORONi) from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. Do you really want to trust an angel named MORONi

    Do we really believe that Christianity was lost till Joseph Smith found some golden plates that no one knows where they are and an angel named MORONi visited him?

    Are you prepared to tell Jesus your savior that he is the brother of Satan?

    That is what Mormonism teaches. That the King James is full of errors and that they have another gospel.

    Please consider this carefully.

    Funny how the archaeologists of the USA can not find any traces of the Nephites or Lamenites civilizations Smith wrote about.

    it says in verse 12 that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and so on. Is it not flesh and blood (people) that runs these principalities?
