  • Ryan on Job 1
    The Book of Job has always made the most sense to me not as a literal history of a man, but as a parable, used just as Christ later would, to teach that misfortune does not stem from a person's wickedness. When we ask God, "Why me?" during our troubles, this parable teaches us that God is making more from our lives. Even if it is our lot to perish to injustice as the martyrs and saints, in doing so with our faith unbroken we further God's kingdom.

    I do not believe we should interpret this book literally; God and Satan behave in a manner very inconsistant with how they are portrayed everywhere else in the Bible. Rather I am quite convinced this is a parable. It lays out an arguement, points and counterpoints and refutations, and concludes in the last chapter. Besides, 1:8 states Job was a perfect man, yet only Christ was perfect. Job is a hypothetical example to build the premise of this arguement. I am quite certain he never existed, but the teaching in this book is still very real and divinely granted.
  • Josh on Genesis 1:2
    "And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." Now THIS part of the verse REALLY confuses me. Notice it says he moved upon the face of the waters. It doesnt say he CREATED the water, so does that mean its ALWAYS been here?
  • Anyasteph on Numbers 31
    The Lord dosent want the midiante to replanish again by commanding moses to kill all the male and all the women that had known man by lying with them. But why did they brought back those things in vs 50 which the Lord was angry to Aaron?
  • JOHN I COWEN on Daniel 4
    what would god do to our government today to be a priority in their job?
  • Samuel on Jeremiah 33:3
    i love this chapter.do you know how great god is?take a look at the heavens at night or day and see for yourself that the one who brought us on earth wants to use us for his kingdom.that mean that we are very important and since we are so important it means that we are untouhable because he giveth and taketh life.man was created a little lower than the angels then it means that man can do many great things.look at jesus christ, look at the wonderous works he did and he stated that we can do greater works than him.i remember that in the new testament that someone was demon psesss and the disciples could not of cast out the demon and christ told them that this cometh only by fasting and praying.we as human has great spiritual capabilities but we must yes its compulsory seek god everyday walk and talk with god.be holy and he would showw you great and mighty things that thou knowest not.remember angelica zombrano and mary baxter.
  • PR on 1 John 1
    "Forgiveness from “sins” is a free gift based on a condition. (Acts 2:38) The condition for forgiveness is baptism in water."

    And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. (Luke 23:43)

    So when exactly was the malefactor baptized?

    Either the Lord is wrong or you are.
  • HARRY ALLISON on Psalms 18
    DAVID was always giving JESUS GLORY!MAY I ENDEAVOR TO DO THE SAME.EVEN in times of adversity,when others turn back,i will keep going forward towards THE PRIZE.IS JESUS pleased with me?
  • Yvonne Boatright on Amos 1:5
    I am not quite sure to be honest.. I am still praying and asking the Lord Jesus to reveal it's truths to my heart. Perhaps you could shed some light on this scripture..
  • Kerry on Genesis 2
    On the sixth day our HEAVENLY FATHER created man, both male and female. Which day was Adam created?
  • Samson ohanaka on Titus 3
    The word of God is the true light. It's guidance is not subject to human opinion. Is it not amazing to know that our salvation is not based on our works of righteousness but by grace? Titus 3:4-5. It doesn't matter what you think you have done, how dirty you think your life may have been, or what people think about you. His love for you is greater than the judgement of men against you. Accept his righteous works done on your behalf then you can produce fruits of righteousness.
  • Ja'ala on Ezra 2
    How do you pronounce Jā’-ă-lăh from the Bible and is it Jewish? Male or female? Would like to know please.
  • Feke aliki on Genesis 15:5
    It comes down to "be happy with what you got". Be happy with the stars in your life. So if you only have one kid, that's one star that shines brighter then the others. Amen....
  • André on Genesis 7
    @Peter,
    Of course there was not such a story like Santa Claus's sled. Not only the possibility of containing pairs of species and even seven pairs of pure ones could be questioned sense knowledge wise, but also the means to bring them to Noah and finally in (not ON) the Ark. All such are questions that need answers.
    Now you can find the dimensions of the Ark in Genesis 6:15, and convert them to our current measuring units to see how unthinkably huge was that ship… But how did Noah manage to draw pairs of each specie in the Ark? It is unimaginable, but above all we can understand, GOD was in charge of HIS own business, Noah was there just for implementation, but the project was GOD’s…
    GOD bless you.
  • Pete on Genesis 7
    How did Noah fit all of those animals on the ark ? If an atheist ever asks you that question, here is your reply:
    The ones that couldn't fit rode in Santa Claus's sled.
  • GERSHION WETLE on Revelation 22:2
    The idea of always being prepared makes me think of the man who lived next door to us when I was growing up. When Mr. Nienhuis came home, he never failed to back his car into the garage. That seemed unusual to me until my mother explained that Nels was a volunteer fireman. If he got a call, he had to be ready to race to the fire station. He backed in so he could leave quickly when he had to report for duty.

    To be well prepared is important in so much of life. “If I had 8 hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend 6 sharpening my axe,” said Abraham Lincoln. We prepare for a career by studying. We buy insurance in case of a car accident or a house fire. We even prepare for the end of life by making a will to provide for loved ones.

    The Bible tells us we must prepare ourselves spiritually as well. We do that by putting on spiritual armor to protect ourselves from spiritual attack (Eph. 6:10-20); by preparing our minds for holy living (1 Peter 1:13); by making sure we’re always prepared to answer questions about the reason for the hope we possess (3:15); and by ensuring that we are ready for the promised return of Jesus (Matt. 24:44).

    How well prepared are you for what lies ahead? Unsure? Ask the Lord for His help and guidance.
    When I awake at early mornTo meet the coming day,I want to be prepared to takeWhatever comes my way. GERSHION D WETLE.
  • Jw on Isaiah 45:7
    Very confused. To have evil it must be committed.
    Therefore God created an action the must be committed. ??????????
  • Peggy on Mark 5
    I did not know people could cut themselves all way back to the bible. I knew someone that did that, and cut himself with a knife and that person is no longer with us he took his own life. But why does people cut themselves? It is hard for me to understand this.
  • Genevieve on Proverbs 1
    @Michael, God will never give up on you, think about this,,who reached out first? God or you,by giving christ to us He is simply saying ,I've got your back guys, trust me and hold on,you are not in this alone, I am with you and will always be once you don' t quit on me. Hope this encourages you.
  • BTW on Deuteronomy 1
    My question is why is there so much violence and hatred in gods commandments. Why doesn't god just come forth and wipe them out. Why doesn't he just appear himself? Doesn't make sense to me.
  • Saundra on Ruth 1
    Isn't it awesome how GOD always plants someone without our life too comfort us when we need it most? Naomi's trials didn't begin until Ruth had already been firmly planted in her life. Having gone through some close family dealths I am a true testimony that GOD will never leave us without someone to comfort us. He will be ther 24 hrs. a day also. Naomi is an example that even when we have our doubts, GOD will stear us on the right path.
  • Samuel Kel on Joshua 13
    Not just that Joshua should wake up but that we in this present dispensation should arise and preach the Woed and leave it, frowning at what God would frown at. We have been commanded in Mathew 28v18-20 to go out and spread the Word, it is a command not a suggestion from the Lord. How many are doing this and conquering lands (souls) for JESUS, how many compared to the millions of professed christians? We must wake up before it is nightfall.
  • Susan Dalton on Genesis 4:14
    How do you know Cain? “Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid…” Cain went out from the presence of the LORD. He knew his wife, and she conceived and bare Enoch. Cain built a city and called it after his son: Enoch. How do you know if you are in the city Cain built? Do you see the face of the LORD? Is his face hid from the people there? Do they want you to hide the face of the LORD if you come to work or dwell in their city? If in such a city, the seed of the Lord are not to slay Cain; but, beware, the seed of Cain may slay the righteous seed; for the seed of Cain are hid from the face of the Lord and they hate to see the Lord in the face of His seed.
  • Delvin Scott on Job 2
    Job; reminds us that our faith in God is more important than the things we have. problem is can he trust us to prove that point ?,todays christians are too materialistic.as for me my salvation is most important,and God allways best.Remember Matt. 6:19 -34

They where force to sing of there home land of zion .Keep in mind they where in this strange land. WHERE DO WILLOW TREES GROW IN THE US?
  • Albright Olajide on Hebrews 4
    The Holy Scripture has all manner of dictates, precepts, notions and principles in it that has been given for whosoever believeth. As a matter of fact, God has no choice to do it like that, because, primarily He is the Creator of the Heaven and the earth- and also He created man in His image. Hence, when a person has given his or her life to Jesus Christ as LORD and Saviour, it then connotes that such a person has become not only joint heirs with the LORD, but also that he or she is an agent of righteousness on this planet earth to the glory of he Holy and righteous God.
    Hence, the writer of Hebrews in it’s 4th chapter, the reminds the Church of God’s holy promises that are, in His covenant that we ensure that we live in accordance with the Word of the Eternal God. Why is this? It is that we can have what it takes to enter into the blessings of His promises; for therein, there is peace of mind and the type of rest that God has given for they that loveth Him.

    However, this of a necessity demands the God kind of faith with particular regards to the doctrine of justification through the weaponry of faith. (Romans 1:16,17)There are many implications to this- it then signifies that as believers, that believes, in the resurrected LORD, we must put our dependency on the living God, through Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the holy Son of God. And that is because, as the author and also the developer of our faith, He knows and understands what we may be going through; for He Himself, has been through it, hence the need for, total reliance on the faithfulness of God, and also on the infallibility of the Holy Scripture.Therefore, when we come to the throne of grace, we know with certainty, that we have a high priest in the God Head, who is ready and as a matter of fact has dispensed and made available His favours that we may obtain it through the tool of faith that honours God. Thus we have been admonished through this 4th chapter, that we may do according to the spirit of the Holy Writ, to the glory of God; for He is forever trustworthy.

  • Håvar Støversten on Ezekiel 21
    I believe Syria is part of Ammon,
    And i believe the current crisis in Syria is described by God in Ezekiel 21;28-32.

    28And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say thou, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering:

    29Whiles they see vanity unto thee, whiles they divine a lie unto thee, to bring thee upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.

    30Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy nativity.

    31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy.

    32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.

    Today's date is 25.08.12.
    I've known it for over six months now!
  • Debbera on Genesis 6
    I believe God told Cain in Genesis 4:7 what his end would be. If thou doest well, shall thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall he his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. I believe this is why Jesus kept on impressing on Peter asking him do you love me. When Jesus started to wash the feet of his disciples Peter told him not my feet Lord. Jesus told him if I wash not your feet you have no inheritance with Me. Peter said wash my hands, every part. The Lord told just your feet.
