  • Peter on Genesis 6
    Did Noah bring two tapeworms on the ark? I wish he would have left them off. Also cobras, and Mosquitos. Why did God even make those things in the first place?
  • Sue Barker on Matthew 2
    I am a firm believer in Jesus Christ and the fulfillment of prophecy in the Bible and all that good stories. I have read this passage of scripture this morning and I am a bit confused. If someone can explain it to make complete sense I would be more than blessed by your knowledge. From verses 19-23, it explains that an Angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph after Herod's death and told him to take to young child and his mother and go into the land of Israel, Joseph obeyed and rose up and proceeded to take the young child and his mother as the Angel had said. BUT, when he heard that Herod's son was now in Herod's position, he was AFRAID to go there NOTWITHSTANDING being forewarned of God in a dream, he TURNED ASIDE into the parts of Galilee. He lived in a city called Nazareth, which was a prophecy fulfillment in itself as it was written that Jesus would be called a Nazarene. Now my questions: 1. Was Judaea, Galilee and Nazareth all in Israel? 2. Why did Joseph become AFRAID when he heard that Archelaus was in his father's place. We know that fear is not of God. If Joseph had the Angel of the Lord appear to him in a dream and he had Baby Jesus himself in his care, why then be afraid? 3. Did Joseph disobey the Angel of God in spite of being forewarned in a dream whereby "turned aside into the parts of Galilee"? Someone would do well to explain please. I know what would make sense here but I want to see if anyone is thinking along the same lines or if maybe I am wrong. Thank You and have a blessed day in Jesus' Mighty name!
  • Clint on 1 Timothy 5
    Eric, hundreds of times The Word talks about Jews, gentiles, Egyptians, Ethiopians and other races that God will cause to be with Him for eternity! You have should read The Word fully and get rid of biases.
  • Maronda on John 1
    This is a good chapter, and the thing that stood out with me when I read it was when Nathaniel, asked, "can there be anything good that can come out of Nazareth?" I don't know what the city of Nazareth was like in the day that Jesus was here in the flesh, but it must have been something else. It just inspired me and made me think that God can raise up and use anyone from any place on earth even though others see the place as useless, crime ridden, and often referred to as God forsaken. It also made me think that God can call anyone to service despite, their origin, race, background or birthplace. That makes me smile!!
  • Nunu on 2 John 1
    Can you please help me understand verse 1, 2 and 5 ... Who/what does the word "Lady" reference to? Is it the church? If so, what about verse 13 "Sister" Thank you.
  • Peter on Genesis 1
    If God made everything, it must follow that he made the strep throat bacteria, designed cancer, tsunamis, volcanoes, aids virus, the common cold, etc.. We should be thankful he loves us so much. Could you imagine if he didn't?
  • Rachel on Hebrews 10:25
    I have had lots of trials in the church, and so decided to stay away. I believe the church is a place to run to and not run from. To now be intimidated, mocked, or stepped on in that same church just beats my imagination. This scripture got me thinking. Have I made the right decision to stay away or do I pretend that all is well and continue to attend?
  • Thomas Buercklin on Revelation 9:20
    Were the men which the four angels loosed by the sixth angel killed?
  • Mary on Ezekiel 23:37
    Ezekiel 23:37 speaks of adultery. People often wonder "does adultery only apply to marriage?". Yes, adultery does refer to someone who is married and puts away the spouse and all that, but this same principle also applies in a single person's life. In short: a married person is married and is exclusive to their spouse. A single person is exclusive to God (remaining pure) until married then that person is exclusive to the spouse. One's relationship to God is the most important thing to establish before even thinking about a relationship. 1 Chronicles 11:16 is a good memory verse. So in summary: a married person is married and remains exclusive to the spouse and a single person is God's child and stays pure so that the future relationship God has planned for that person will be wonderful and all that God had intended for it to be.
  • Garyloyd, only Noahís wife, sons and daughters in laws made it through the flood! 8 people of Noah and no others, what 2 of each flesh are you talking about?
  • Amy, are you referring to vs. 10 where it says we will be saved from the wrath to come? That refers to the wrath that will come upon the whole world, not the rapture of the saints (that will happen) vs. 10 says because we are saved we will not have any wrath directed at us believers!
  • Mary on 2 Samuel 22
    2 Samuel 21: 1-9 Principle illustrated: David taking responsibility for Saulís actions which shows David being a man after Godís own heart. There was a famine in the land Israel because Saul had killed the Gibeonites. David faced the Gibeonites for Saul to see if there was anything that he could do for them. They demanded that he deliver seven men of Saulís sons to them because they had insisted that they should be destroyed. The Lord chose the men who He wanted David to send. David did not send Mephibosheth because of his oath with Jonathan not to destroy each otherís seed. The Gibeonites would hang them for what they had done. The consequences from wrong doing can be brutal. Seven men hanged because one man slew some people. As Christians everything that we do has an influence on people. I sometimes forget that people look up to me. What I think is ďwhy me?Ē I am nobody special. I am just a sinner trying to live for God. I have learned that doing the right thing is what God wants us to do and if we do, it we will be set up for the blessings of God and not famine. I know that I get in the way of Godís showers of blessings that He want to rain upon me, but that is because I am human and make the mistake of handling things myself when God would be more than happy to take care of it for me. Being a man after Godís own heart is the way to true joy.
  • Mary on 1 Samuel 2
    1 Samuel 2:8-10 Principle illustrated: Man can accomplish great things with Godís strength. (((1))) Out of the dust, God raises the poor men and gives them their inheritance among princes. No man can overpower or even come remotely close to Godís strength. God, with his strength, will silence the wicked and anyone else who tries to disrupt his plan. God has recently shown me through godly influences around me and his precious word that I can succeed in anything when I realize how much I need his help. God has revealed to me that if I put little effort into something I will sow only that much but, if I give God my all, he will help me to succeed. He has given me an overabundance every time I give him my all. It took me a while to realize it but, God is my ďAll in AllĒ, so why do I not always give him my all? Sometimes I tend to forget that I have to be faithful and do my part. I am so thankful that God is always faithful and does his part even when I do not deserve it.
  • Esther on Genesis 10
    Does anyone know where I can find more of the story of Nimrod, Semiramis in the bible? I remember reading somewhere that one of Noah's sons chopped off Nimrod's head for marrying his mother. Very interesting subject especially since a lot of countries paganisms' are rooted in this very first pagan religion of Babylon.
  • Sandra henrickson on Psalms 7
    Is it me? Did I do that this time? If yes, then let me deal with the consequences of my actions or no actions. Oh! Merciful Lord. If no guilt is found in me, bring silence to those who wish me harm and destruction and unto those my heart would cry for. If anyone or anything comes my way that does not have your permission to do so, cause them to bounce off this shield of protection to a place where they can find their peace, comfort, and joy.
  • Jay on Genesis 37
    What do you believe the coat of many colors represents?
  • What I find interesting is the efforts people will go to, to avoid this passage, or to do proper research to find out where all this "subjection" started in scripture, as it says in 1 Corinthians 14:34, "Just as the Law also states". The Pentateuch, or books of the Law, is where this commandment is located. People who do not like this doctrine, however, do not want to do the work necessary to figure out where, and when, this commandment was made. They avoid doing any research at all because the very idea presented in this command, is contrary to their desires. Letís do a little research, however, and see if we can trace this commandment down. That this "Law" was in place, from the earliest times is clear, if you look at the other references to women, and submission. (1 Peter 3:5-6) " 1 Peter 3:5 For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; 6 just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear." That women, and many men, do not like this verse, either, as it clarifies that submission ALWAYS results in obedience to the will of the one submitted to, the same obedience as children to their parents in a discussion that includes wives being subject to husbands, Men to the word of God/Christ, Children to parents, and slaves to masters,... as this is the same word, is also another issue: ďEphesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.Ē Again, while this is the exact same word as Sarahís submissiveness verifies in 1 Peter, shows that the Obedience is the same, and always accompanies biblical submission, but it also shows something else, that submission was in practice PRIOR TO ABRAHAM. This does pin things down a bit. Where, prior to Abraham, did God give this command? Keep in mind that many twist, distort, alter, Ö the meaning of this passage to fit what they want to believe as well, but if we follow rules for interpreting meaning that are common to ALL languages, then we know that ďIf the EXACT same wording is used, by the same author, then the meaning is consistent, ESPECIALLY if the exact same wording is used in close proximity to the previous wording.Ē In other words, if we had a passage that read this: ďGenesis 4:7 "If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it." And another passage that read this, ĒYet your desire will be for your husband, And he will rule over you.", and the wording were exactly the same, and by the same author, and the passages were within, say, 15 verses of each other, the meanings of the two verses would be the same. What is the consistent meaning in BOTH passages? Keep in mind that this EXACT SAME wording is not used anywhere else in scripture. To help, sins desire was to master, or rule over, Cain, and thus have control over him. God said that this was not to be, and that Cain was to be the Master, Rule, be in charge, Ö over it, and not let sin rule over him. A womanís desire will be to rule, be in control, be in charge, Ö over her husband, and he is commanded by God NOT TO LET HER, but to be the master, ruler, Ö over her. Like I said, most people really do not want to look. Why would any woman want to give up the very things that the word of God says she will truly desire. Any man attempting to teach these things, and to hold his church, and the men in it, accountable for what God commands in this verse, will find out exactly who is in control of the households in his church. Men, keep in mind that there were 2 reasons for Godís giving Adam consequences in Genesis 3:17. The first is that Adam listened to his wife. The second was that Adam disobeyed God. Any man unwilling to obey Godís command to rule over his household, and not let his wife have control, is, in fact disobeying God at the same time. You are no different than Adam. You are habitually sinning. Ruling in love, and submission being voluntary, are, again, separate issues.
  • Clint on Galatians 3
    Henry, God wonít change nor stop hating sin. He has told us in Romans 1 that gays and lesbians will not be in heaven! Where do you get your leaven from? A gay and lesbian church, which should not be Godís!
  • Ben on Isaiah 18
    In geographic positioning what is this nation that Isaiah is taking about?
  • Merline Daley on Colossians 3
    This passage of scripture challenges the believer to be renewed in his/her mind. First we need to watch our motives and actions while we walk daily. Are we serving God or our selfish ambitions? It shows us what our Christian walk should be like.
  • Clint on 2 Corinthians 2
    @Twaslima,
    When you preach the gospel to the unsaved and they reject it and then die in their sin, when judgment day comes they will have no excuses and will stink before God just as the sacrifices in old testament times when Israelis offered blemished or lame sheep or goats or bullocks. Hope it helps?
  • Peter on Job 1
    Andre, Couldn't God have intervened and helped the poor guy out? What about his poor family and all of the servants (slaves?) who were slaughtered while God looked on. I hope he apologized to them in Heaven.
  • Anita Roberts on Ecclesiasticus 9:4
    I never saw or heard of this Book Ecclesiastes, I have Ecclesiastes......not in my King James Version...Was it written by one of the Apostles? Not the same context in New World Translation or my King James....Who did write it and when?
  • Joann on Deuteronomy 22:5
    I don't want to write what I think but I will. God is not concerned about what we wear so much as he is about our hearts. However, it's in the bible for a reason. I believe that he was speaking in a sexual tone. We sometimes take the bible out of context. Today is the day! When I wear pants is it because I think myself to be manly? No! The garment I wear was not made for a man to wear. Although a man wanting to perceive himself as a woman might well wear them. You mean I shouldn't wear my husband's shirt? Say if I was cleaning my house and I put on his shirt because it was more comfortable. It goes back to the heart or the spirit of which it is worn.
  • Robert collier on Genesis 37:28
    How was Joseph transported to Egypt?
  • Agnes Dadzie on Proverbs 22:3
    Where can I find the meaning of Proverbs 22: 3? Is there any book that explains further?
  • El Jerom on 1 John 5
    I therefore conclude that the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are not three Gods nor three persons but one divine being only. Many religions use this verse as the basis of their Trinity but not a single verse in the Bible says that there are three persons in the Godhead nor there is a single verse in the Bible that says the Father is a person, or the Son is God the Son/second person, or the Holy Spirit is the third person. How can God be person when He was the Creator of persons (humans)?
  • Peter on John 2
    Did Jesus turn the water into a Merlot, or did he have a house wine?
  • Peter on Mark 6
    Couldn't have Jesus reattached John's head if he wanted to?
  • Peter on Jonah 1
    When Jonah left the whale, which end did he come out of?
