  • Timothy Wayne George on Luke 12:20
    Jesus has just told a parable about a certain rich man. The rich man had more goods than he could store up, so he thought to himself, without being mindful of God, I shall build larger barns to bestow my goods. Then I will say to my soul, take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. Instead God said thou fool, this night, thy soul is required of thee, and to whom shall these goods be given? We have to remember God owns it all, and we are only stewards. We will have to give an account of our stewardship when we die. To whom much is given, much is required. It is wise to give those goods away while you are living, to the glory of God, and for the furtherance of His Kingdom. Beware of covetousness, for the life of a man does not consist in the abundance of the things that he has. Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, then all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.
  • Elvis on Acts 1
    Today, many people and the pastors are only baptized of water. We have 2 kinds of baptism which all Christians must be baptized with:
    1. Is the baptism of water (which is the first to receive after you have accepted the word);
    2. The baptism of the Holy Spirit (which is the second one after you are baptized of water); read Acts 1:5; read again Acts 19:2. Paul asks some Christians if they are baptized of the holy spirit, and their answer was NO, we are not and we don’t even know about that kind of baptism (they only know the one of water). He baptized them (NOTE: it is the apostle who does this and his name is Paul). Acts 8:16, when they heard that the Samaritans have accepted the word, they sent the apostle to that country, none of them has received the holy spirit, though they accepted the word. And they were then baptized of the holy spirit by the apostles. Acts 8:18, Simon the witch saw that by being laid on the hands by the apostles, the holy spirit was received he then wanted to buy it with money. Guys my concern and I pray that people must meet the apostles in order to receive the holy spirit. You can be baptized with water by almost every pastor but when it comes to the baptism of the holy spirit you need to meet the apostles for this task. Once you are only baptized with water, that’s not enough, even if you are a pastor or a leader in the church you need to be baptized with the holy spirit. People think that by reading a bible or by praying for yourself you can be baptized with the holy spirit. NO. if you think so, why when you need to be baptized by water you call the pastor to baptize you? WHY don’t u just pray and Deep yourself by yourself in water. But instead you need someone to deep you in water and baptize you. Same Rules applies to the baptism of the holy spirit. You need to get an authorized person (AND THAT IS THE APOSTLES ONLY) to baptize you. Please try to look for the apostles they will help you free. I thank God for is grace that he showed me. Today I am baptized of both water and the holy spirit. I pray that you meet the apostles. We are going house by house preaching the word and those who accept us, are getting help. They have built the church of God in me. Their Role is great. May God be with you, until you receive this power that I am talking about. Lots of pastors from different churches today have come to the apostles to be baptized.
  • Somu on Luke 3:38
    Jesus is the 62th generation of Adam. These verses are showing the history of approximately 5000 years. But science says there has been living things on earth from several million of years. What’s true? I’m a believer of Jesus, please answer me.
  • Susan Dalton on Proverbs 23:10
    Remove not the old landmark; Proverbs 23:10. How can one person remove a shared boundary marker without the knowledge and consent of the one with whom he/she shares the boundary and that be not unlawful? If not unlawful, at least, inconsiderate. If we do not recognize shared boundaries, we become insolent toward the one with whom we share the boundary. If two people share a property line, it is a very thin line. In actuality, a line is very thin, though it has two borders. A line has two sides and it shares a very narrow space in between - very small; but cross that very small space and you are on someone else's property. Now, if two share a line, and a marker is set defining that boundary, and one person removes the one and only boundary marker, that person has chosen to remove that which was to mark a boundary for two. That one has removed visibly that which was not only for him/herself, but, which was also for the other. A visual testament to a boundary has been taken away. If someone bought land and the neighbor of that land had been mowing way pass their boundary onto the land that has been recently bought, so that now the new owners have had people come onto their land accusing them of being on someone else's land because those people must have assumed because the other owner mowed so far over if was his land. So, the new owner would go and show the boundary marker so to put to rest the controversy. Now, the boundary marker has been removed - someone dug it up. The plot of land is surveyed, plotted, deeded and recorded, but, for some that visible boundary marker served to show what is legal and recorded. No wonder we have so many acts of insolence and violence in our society. That which is deeded and recorded by God is still the right statues and judgments, but, man has removed many of the old landmarks; some people may know the boundaries without the landmarks, many must not know where the boundaries are; or, even sadder, many just don't care.
  • Lydia Walker on Psalms 118:8
    I'm reminded of this scripture in every challenge. Nowhere in the Bible are we told to take our burdens to our Earthly friends. My faith takes on another layer of trust with every circumstance. I talk to the Lord all through the day. Sleep at night? Always. If I awake I "count my blessings instead of sheep" and, as the dated song says, "I fall asleep counting my blessings." As another old song says, "I will trust in the Lord 'til I die." No friend on this planet could ever be as available, or wise as He.
  • Linda on Leviticus 18:22
    I'm not perfect nor do I claim to be but I ask how could a person who claims to be a follower of God, condone same sex marriages? God does not hate the sinner, but yes He does hate the sin. As Jesus hung on the cross, He asked his Father "Why have You forsaken me?" It was and still is because God wants nothing to do with sin and does not associate with sin. So tell me: how can a so called messenger of God perform same sex marriages, when the Bible states it's an abomination?
  • Jesse on Proverbs 18
    If a man having Earthly friends must show himself friendly to maintain loving relationships; How much more rewarding is it if you show yourself friendly to Jesus in daily fervent and effectual prayer? He is the friend who sticketh closer than a brother; this means He knows you better than your closest relative; and you can show yourself friendly to him by spending time with him in prayer. A little talk with Jesus makes it right. All right!
  • Michael on Leviticus 20:13
    We can pick our sides and positions and that is all well and good. But we cannot stop there. While we believe homosexuality is an abomination, those loved ones and friends need to repeatedly hear this from us. Remember that WE are placed in their lives to point this out - to point them to everlasting life with Christ. Do we have any fight left in us? Do we wish to SAVE them or to just pick a side? At the end time - our end time and theirs - the chasm will be too great, the separation too far to do anything about it. I am Michael and I call each of you into action. Fight as if you were saving someone's life; in fact you are saving their souls!
  • Haydie trinquite on Haggai 1
    How much do you know of GOD in your life?
  • Yvette Rolle on Judges 7
    I enjoyed the reading, is it possible for me to have the trivia question on this chapter?
  • Sally on Numbers 31
    As far as I can understand, Moses is told to give 16 young virgin girls to Eleazar as a heave offering to God, this seems like human sacrifice, and I am quite shocked, why would the bible say that if it were not true?
  • Yolanda garcia on Exodus 32:33
    Does it mean in this verse that my name is written in the book of life?
  • Gpaul on Psalms 18
    David praised, preached, exhorted, testified, exalted, and magnified God all in one chapter. Who is like God's servant David? David is our example. Amen.
  • Kim on Philippians 4
    What is the abbreviation for the book of Philippians?
  • Evalena Jacobs-Latham on Hebrews 10
    @Leslie,
    "What is the Truth?" Jesus Christ says “I am the Way, The Truth, and The life". Listen to Jesus and not man for His sheep hear His voice. Those who teach the Ten Commandments are not His sheep. We are now under Grace and not the law. If you are still under the law, you have fallen from Grace, and Christ has died in vain.
  • BRENDA JOHNSON on Romans 12
    Romans 12:2, Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, Stop! Then I read it again. What is that good? Then I asked myself what is that good? It's being acceptable to God? It's being in the perfect will of God. But we have to prove it by renewing our mind, and be in the world but not of the world. And if we can prove that, that is what is that good. Amen.
  • Art Hays on Luke 13:9
    Can the condition of the “if” (1st, 2nd, 3rd class condition) be determined in a sentence?
  • Eric Obika on Deuteronomy 22:5
    Deuteronomy 22:5 is quite clear for the understanding of the simple but our ignorance may not allow our horizon to be broadened. At first, what pertaineth to an opposite sex is abnormal to be worn. How can my girlfriend wear my clothe? It’s wrong! Any clothe that has been worn by a man should not be repeated by a woman. We are different in physique and nature therefore we shouldn't interwear clothes, that's my understanding of the verse. Those saying that women wearing trouser is a sin should read again with understanding. When God gave the command, there was no disparity in terms of clothing. Both sexes wear ropes but that which has been worn by a man should not be worn by a woman. Keep faith!
  • Gary El on Genesis 3:15
    What was the serpent? Was it one of the animals that Adam named?
  • Ron Steward on 1 John 5
    A lot of good comments here about all one God but what do you do with John 3:16 “for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.......” Can you be your own son. Can you give yourself. And Genesis Where it says "Let Us make man in our Own image. Does God talk to himself? And David said "The Lord said unto my Lord sit the on my right hand......" Again, does God talk to Himself? There are three God-heads but these three are as one. This is hard for flesh to comprehend as we cannot imagine three people acting as one person so much so that you would think it was just one person but this is exactly what the Trinity is. 1 John 4:15 "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God." I confess that Jesus is the son of God. How can you be your own son?
  • Bro. Daniel FC on Hebrews 4
    @Reggie,
    May I suggest, letting the Bible explain Hebrews 4: 9, 10.
    “9 There remains therefore a rest to the people of God”. The word “rest” in original Greek is “Sabbatismo” from which we get the word ”Sabbath” or the seventh day. This matches perfectly with what verse 10 says: “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.” Here is that account: Genesis 2 “1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished and all the host of them. 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” Though the Jews kept the seventh day Sabbath, it is not a Jewish sacred day only; it belongs to all of us. It is not a punishment but a privilege. And keeping the Sabbath Day holy is not an option either: It is the fourth of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20). Jesus, our Creator gave us the Sabbath at the end of the Creation Week. He kept it holy while on earth, and he bids us to teach all nations “whatsoever I have commanded you” Matthew 28:19, 20. Here is a promise to those who keep it: “If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shalt honor him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words; Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD… for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it”. Isaiah 58: 13, 14. This Sabbath Day will also be celebrated in God’s New Kingdom: “And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 66:23. Now, how we celebrate the Sabbath is another issue.
  • William on Romans 1
    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Does this scripture pertaining to the prior scriptures (Romans 1:26-31) give us as Christians the right to condemn people who condone such actions to death? Shouldn't this chapter mean that the people who are looked up to represent us as Christians, teach us to follow the rules and not stoop to the level of sin in order to be a light in the darkness so the sins can be forgiven through the Son of God and not to pass judgment and/or the death penalty on everyone who sins?
  • Hellen Beeldsnijder on Matthew 6:22
    Now I have a question for you: Do you know what the water of live is? Revelation 22:17.
  • Cool ansh on John 15:26
    I'm getting a little confused here about who actually Jesus meant by the comforter? Can someone explain to me please? Thanks.
  • Timothy Wayne George on Romans 8:35
    What can separate us from the love of God? Nothing or no one can separate us from the love of God. It is Christ who died, yes and is risen, and seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us. Salvation is up to you to accept or reject. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved. Jesus came to save us from the law of sin, and death. The Spirit of God confirms with our spirit that we are the children of God. There is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but according to the Spirit of life. Jesus said because I live, you shall live also. Don't believe the devil's lie, but hold on to God's unchanging hand. His everlasting arms are there holding us up to whatever peril He allows us to go through. We are more than victorious in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  • Gbolahan Abiodun on Proverbs 9
    The God that we serve is the great God- He is also very hospitable. These are distinctly and very noticeable in this Proverbs 9. Interestingly, He chooses to speak to us through Solomon the man of the book of Proverbs, in this particular book- and He refers to the fact that Wisdom has built her house and she has hewn out seven pillars. In other words, she has carefully shaped and put in place her pillars, as a matter of fact, more than what a skilful craftsman would do.. And that is that He has prepared a table before you and I in the terrain of the Holy Spirit for spiritual feasting. What meaneth this? Well, all these point to the fact that there is feast that God has prepared for they that love and believe Him through Jesus Christ- and that is on the other side of Jordan. However, on this planet earth, there is an encouraging invitation to feast on the Word of God. In fact, there is the milk of the Word of God, highly inherent in it- and that is for baby Christians and then the meat of the Word is there as well for grownups! In addition to that, there is also the washing of the water through the Word. That purely refers to the aspect of purification and sanctification. In fact, there is also the onion and pepper of it, if you would- and it is only for whosoever believeth. He has also mingled His wine and demands that we forsake foolishness- and that we crave and thirst for the things that the Holy Spirit dispenses and administers. The intent of all these, is that we can be rest assured that He that rescued and delivered us through Jesus Christ of Nazareth- he has also made available, no matter where you and I are, a place that has semblance with the garden of Eden, as it was, in the creation story- and that is in the opening books of Genesis. However, it is only for the discerned; for there are things therein that pertains to the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. May the LORD God, send showers on His church, true revelation and understanding of these things. He that walketh with the wise cannot but have something that would rub on them- and that is the biblical order of righteousness and godliness.
  • EVANS ACHIENG on Numbers 16
    It defeats me! Does it mean this the exact nature of man, or was it just the nature of the Israelites? So forgetful, so arrogant and non-repentant? They saw what happened to the young man fathered by a foreigner when he cursed God. The saw what happened to Miriam. They saw what happened when they carved flesh. They saw what happened to Korah and associates; they still could afford to murmur against Moses! WHAT A PEOPLE? Are we like them?
  • Anderson on Daniel 12
    Michael, I do get your explanation to Willie. I may not have got it well, but it seems the 'daily sacrifice' will be stopped by the evil empire? Please explain more!
  • Salomăo on Proverbs 18:22
    God saw that everything he had done was good. There were peace beauty and harmony! This is what the good God speaks of, so a good wife must or should represent grace for her husband, an undeserved favour. Does she/he love Jesus truly? Does she/he brings peace for you? If yes then you can marry.
  • Joe on Psalms 110
    42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? Whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David. 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 45If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
