  • Samuel Bonaya Buya on Acts 2
    In Luke 24:45-49 Jesus reminded his disciples of what is written of him concerning his suffering, death and ressurection; that repentance and remission of sins would be preached in his name beginning from Jerusalem. They were to wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Ghost to come upon them in order to witness the word (Acts 1:7-8). Before his crucifiction Jesus had told his disciples that it was not them that would speak but the Holy Ghost (Mark 13:11). They were to preach the the Gospel with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven (1 Peter 1:12). On the day of pentecost they heard the infallible Holy Ghost speak through the mouth of Peter (Acts 2:33). In Acts 10:44 it says to him give all prophets witness that through his name whosover believers shall receive remission of sins. On this day of pentecost, after death burial, ressurection and ascension of Jesus, the Holy Ghost witnessed, beginning from Jerusalem, commanding the people to repent and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins and they would receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). God is His own interprater, interpreting the Name of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost; for he says in Zechariah 14:9 : And the Lord shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord and his name one. Thomas called him My Lord and my God (John 20:28). On this day of Pentecost the Holy Ghost bore witness of His Holy child whom He annointed( Mathew 1:18, Acts 4: 27). Who can add or subtract from what God had began? What He began in the day of pentectost and Jerusalem restores in the Last days: Baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ for remission of Sin. The Holy Ghost Church will stay with the command of the Holy Ghost for they know the Apostles were sent the Holy Ghost (13:4) and spake these words at His command.
  • Maureen on Genesis 1
    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Period! The second verse says the earth was without form and void. God did not create the earth that way. The manuscripts actually say the earth became formless and void-why? Because of the revolt of Satan. The Father made a beautiful and perfect earth and Satan, along with one third of the angels revolted against our Father and the earth was decimated. Our Father renewed, refreshed or recreated the earth again in 6 days; remember that a day with the Lord is as a thousand years with man. Whether or not the 6 days were periods of 24 hours, as we know it, or 6 millennium doesn't matter. The Father made man, Adam, which consisted of all races, on the sixth day. He created a specific man, eth ha Adam, on the eighth day and placed him in the garden. This specific man was to till the ground. Out of him, came Eve from the "rib"or curve, which was actually the DNA of Adam.
  • Jacque on Isaiah 9
    That's right Jeff! Revelation 1:8 says - I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the *Almighty*. Jesus spake this.

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. -v,14- And *the Word was made flesh*, and dwelt among us*, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    Whoever you are ~ 123 ~ let me give you some knowledge. John 3:16 says For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him *SHOULD* not perish, but have everlasting life.

    It does NOT say that you SHALL be saved! I bought an ozarka water the other day and it said on the back of it, " this item SHOULD not be sold individually." well i bought it by its self. So, maybe it wasn't meant to be sold individually but it was. Same goes with the scripture. Yeah if you believe that Jesus is god and you believe this,

    Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, -6- One God and Father of all,

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved.

    If you think there is three gods you are sorely mistaken. There's not two nor five. Only ONE !

    Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
    Isaiah 44:8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
    1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
  • VLHowell on Genesis 4
    To Anonymous (5/30/12):

    First let me point out one particular fallacy that you mentioned in your comment.

    "there is no mention of Eve ever giving birth to daughters (no girls are ever recorded)"

    If you had only read the very next chapter of Genesis, you would know, "...the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters." (Gen. 5:4)

    It obviously shows here that Adam (and by reason, Eve) had more children, among whom were daughters. If you would like to make up contradictions in the Bible, at least put forth some effort to try to make it sound plausible. Josephus wrote that Hebrew tradition puts Adam and Eve's children between 50 and 60 (if i'm not mistaken). While this number can't be taken as infallible since Josephus' writings were not inspired, he was known as quite a scholarly and generally accurate historian.

    To address the question of "where did Cain find a wife?" That's an easy one. It was his sister. The Bible does not give the chronological information as to how old Cain and Able were when the murder occured, nor does it tell how many children Adam and Eve had between Able and Seth. Considering the fact that the Bible speaks of Cain and Able as functioning adults, there is ample time for Adam and Eve to give birth to many girls who would have become Cain's wife.

    The main point being, there are no contradictory or illogical statements made in Genesis 4 (or the rest of the Bible for that matter).
  • Art on John 3
    John 3:23 Is it saying that Jesus and his disciples came and was baptized by john?
  • Hamton on Genesis 6:2

    Butch is right and he delineated his reasoning directly from unmolested scripture. You and another poster stated how your reasoning is short-sighted in each of your own statements. You said, "The LORD HIMSELF stated [...are like the angels in Heaven who neither marry...]. Exactly-in Heaven. Why is Cain not mentioned in Adam's lineage? Also, if you notice, Cain's sons became the fathers of all worldly things-metal working, music, etc. Where did they get the knowledge to do so if Cain was hidden from God? Further, the same "Sons of God" are spoken of in the old and new testament in reference to fallen angels.

    Nowhere in the Bible does it ever say that all angels are in heaven or that they cannot conform to earthly bodies (see Sodom and Gomorrah where they tried to rape the angels).
  • HARRY ALLISON on Habakkuk 2
  • Samuel Bonaya Buya on Malachi 4
    In Isaiah 2:10-22 we read of the day of the Lord of hosts in which the Lord Will arise to shake terribly the earth. In chapter 24:5-6 Isaiah of says (of this day) the earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and a few are left. Jeremiah says: a noise shall come even to the ends of the earth: for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh: he will give them that are wicked to the sword (Jeremiah 25:27-38 ). The nations shall drink the cup of the wrath of the almighty God. God had promised Abraham a blessing to all the nations through his seed, that is Christ. He was given for a covenant of the people,for a light of the Gentiles. Before the desolation of Jerusalem Paul had these words to say to the Gentiles: and if some of the branches broken off and thou being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partakers of the root and the fatness of the olive tree: boast not against the branches, but if thou boast, thou bearest not the root but the root thee. Thou wilt say the branches were broken that I may be grafted in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standeth by faith. Be not highminded but fear: for if God spared not the natural branches take heed lest he spare not thee.--- for if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted in their own olive tree ( Romans 11:17-26)? The beginning of the gospel was foreran by Malachi 3 messenger ( Mark 1: 1- 3); Jesus pointed in Mathew 11: 10: for this is he, of Whom it is written, Behold I will send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare the way before me. He was the forerunner of the first coming and he went before him in the the Spirit and power of Elijah, and many of the children of Israel he turned to the Lord their God ( Luke1:17) .He, Christ is the author and the finisher of our faith. He promised in Revelation 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he declared to his servants the prophets. We read in the scripture, concerning the second coming: and at midnight there was a cry made, behold the bridegroom cometh (25:5) there is the messenger that is to forerun the second coming, the supper time messenger( Luke 14:17,Revelation 19:9). The forerunner of the second coming will have the spirit of Elijah just as the first forerunner. He will have a world wide ministry because the curse of Isaiah 24:6 will follow after the days of his ministry. The Gentiles (church) will be Judged just as Jerusalem was destroyed by General Titus. The Malachi 3 messenger with the spirit of Elijah ministered the other side of the the atonement before death burial and ressurection. The messenger of Malachi 4 with the spirit of Elijah minister this side of the atonement before the rapture of the church
  • Timothy Wayne George on Habakkuk 1
    Habakkuk is a watchman, and he is crying out to God to do something about the evil that is going on in Judea. Well the Lord is about to use a nation more wicked than them to correct them.

    So it is today, that the Lord will use the wicked people today to correct his people. God is holy, and his eyes too pure to look upon sin. No wonder why when Jesus cried out on the cross my
    God why has thou forsaken me? It was at that time when our sin was placed on the Lord Jesus Christ, that the father had to turn his back on the son. Thank God that Jesus became our propituation. The discipline of the present time is not joyous, but grievous, yet nevertheless it yields the peaciable fruits of righteousness to those who are exercised there by. So God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that who ever believes in him would not perish, but would have eternal life. Jesus is our life, and when we come to him by faith, we will live with him through out eternity in heaven. So the just shall live by faith, and wait on the Lord. For the vision is for the end time, and it shall tarry yet it will speak.
  • Grant on Isaiah 42
    Jacques, It was correct to quote John 1:1. But I noticed you left out verse 18 in that same chapter. Thousands of people SAW Jesus. But my bible says no man has seen God at ANY time. So how can he be God? Also, at Mark 13:32 Jesus by his own addmission says he doen't know everything. How can he be God? Your God's knowedge is limited. My God knows everything.
  • Laura on Numbers 6
    Know someone who shaved their head last year and it is in relation to Numbers Chapter 6. Please explain what this means. I truly want to understand. Is it something that could be expected in present day times? Any information you have will help me understand. I am a Christian!! Jesus is my Savious!!
  • Godfred on Genesis 5
    i am confused as to where Cain had his wife, because the Bible told us that God first created Adam and Eve only, they had two sons,Cain and Able, and these are the four human being who leaved by than, so how come Cain got married, from whose daughter?.
  • Chaz on Acts 3
    The Name of Jesus! aint it Grand? Whatsoever u do in word or deed do it all in the Name Jesus! Thats why we need to pray in Jesus name, we need to baptise in Jesus Name! whatsoever u do in word and deed! Its a beutiful truth ya'll.
  • Chaz on John 3
    In response to Mary's comment. These two verses dont actually talk about salvation. It just states two very basic truths 1. God needed a vessel to carry out the act of redemtion he chose to do this in the likeness of man. So, God chose an embodiment of himself because the blood was going to need to be sinless and only God could do that. So God formed himself in the womb of a jewish virgin girl (mary)then live 33 yrs then to calvery. The other simply states that God Loved the world. No, what your looking for is much more of a blatant answer. The 1st light of God's salvation opens up in Jn3:3/3:5 then tracks itself all the way to the book of Acts starting on the day of Pentecost and all through the the book that is the unfinished history of the new test church. Read and you'll see that everytime salvation was met out they were mandated to repent ,they were baptised in Jesus Name for the what? the remission of sins, they recieved the Holy Ghost and began to do what? Speak in other tounges as the spirit gave the utterance! That is what I call blatant salvation. So dont be sold short. 16/17 r great scriptures no dought, but God has a salvation that goes beyond dought, beyond two settings of scriptures. RU born of water and spirit? read on Mary great truth awaits you.
  • John Guntoro on John 17
    I am really respect to Jesus and how he pray to tell his Father to save the people by giving them the eternal life.
    What is the eternal life?
    The eternal life is to know him, the only true GOD and to know JESUS CHRIST the one who sent.

    Jesus also praying for everyone else who will have faith because of what his disciples will say about him.

    Too deep to be understood and too large to be kept, but too fool to be forgotten...

    Thanks LORD Jesus, you teach me the sincere prayer and give me the conviction... Amen

  • HARRY ALLISON on Habakkuk 1
    JESUS uses any means suitable to HIM and FOR HIM to get HIS POINT across.HABAKKUK is making his disapproval known to GOD.HE also expects to be chastised by his HOLY GOD.JESUS is showing me that HE is GOD and i am not.HOW about you?
  • HARRY ALLISON on Psalms 61:2
    I LIKE THE TIMES WHEN MY HEART BECOMES OVERWHELMED,even to tears ,when JESUS TOUCHES ME .DO you know what times im talking about?JESUS LOVES US VERY MUCH!
  • Harry on Romans 16
    Romans 16, verse 5B talks about, "Salute my well beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ". What is the meaning? Should the word Achaia be Asia?
  • Timothy Wayne George on Colossians 2
    We often ask the question why do bad things happen to good people? The opposite of that is why do good things happen to bad people? God is a good God, and he causes his rain to fall on the just, and unjust alike. Also he causes the sun to shine on the just, and unjust alike. So thank
    God that he is good, and will always cause all things to work together for our good to those who love the Lord, and are called according to his purpose. Which is Christ in you the hope of glory, and thank God that he has crossed out those ordinances that were against us by nailing them to the cross. So be careful of the philosophy of men, and be filled with the wisdom of God. Thank God for everyday, for each day is a holy day. We are called to be holy as our father in heaven is holy.
  • Anonymous on Genesis 4

    why is Cain so worried about everyone trying to kill him ?? who is there ?? Adam and Eve then him and now his brother is dead so .... again who are all the people that will want to kill him
    Where did all the people come from to fill this city that was built by the first born son of the second child born on the planet???

  • Elijah on Tobit 6
    Clearly JESUS Himself was confronted with this self-same issue, when the sadducees (that DENY The Resurrection) came along TEMPTING Him.

    Here (below) they clearly cite verses 13-14 of Tobit 6. This means that these sadducees knew about this writing. Must have been MADE UP by someone with a desire to be "a prophet" if the sadducees were citing it in their "Temptation of Christ".

    JESUS Confirms this with "ye do ERR" below (Verse 29)

    Anyhow, everytime a REAL Angel Shows Up - man has difficulty standing up in their Presence, let alone having a nice chat over lunch, and calling the angel "brother". Also, The Angels generally keep their names Hidden, except for The Archangels, Michael & Gabriel.

    azarias was NOT AN ANGEL - No -el suffix...


    Not Holy Scripture - DEFINITELY - Amen

    Matthew 22 : 23- 29

    "The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
    Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

    And last of all the woman died also.

    Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

    29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God."
  • Elijah on Matthew 1:1
    Derrik j Smith : NO lie : From Hebrew to English goes Yeshuah to JESUS...

    Every tongue sounds DIFFERENT, but The Meaning behind the words is IDENTICAL...

    Except, from "the tone" of YOUR comment, you are clearly NOT a True Christian (YET)....[Messianic Jew ???]

    Think that YOUR "Yahshua" is NOT "Our" JESUS ...

    2 Corinthians 11 : 3 - 5

    "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him."

    The FIRST CHRISTIANS were ALL Jews :

    Acts 11 : 26

    "And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch."

    So who are you Derrick? Messianic Jew or True Christian ???
  • Wyoming on Genesis 11
    to answer THomas

    Thomas's Genesis Chapter 11 comment on 1/14/2012, 6:57am...

    I'm curious, if God knows the end from the beginning why did he see fit to destroy all flesh except that of Noah and his clan. Wouldn't he have seen the corruption coming when he made Adam and all that came after? Why didn't he just destroy them then and there?

    GOd knows the end but he has given free will and hopes many of his children will choose the right thing and he also knew he would send his Son Jesus (Yeshua) to save the creation he so dearly loves else why would he have created them in his own image. His ways are not yours or my ways that's why he thinks different.
  • Rodney smith on 2 Thessalonians 2:7
    This mystery of iniquity was a first century individual. he is the one who had to be removed.
    It is impossible for this wicked individual to be the church or the Holy Spirit, like many bible students think. This individual was alive in the first century, therfore the man of sin must have been revealed in the first century. Nero was the perfect candidate for the man of sin, because he put "almighty God' on his coins and forced everybody to choose to worship Nero or God.
    Nobody could buy or sell without these coins.
    This was the first century mark of the beast.

    How long are the mainstream christian believers
    going to preach the wicked gospel of Armageddon, to promote the wartime agenda
    for the wicked new world order maniacs???

    I wonder why so many christians are being duped
    by these unreasonable Messiancs expectation?
  • Brother Tarharka on 1 Timothy 2
    The most high has given his creation specific duties that work to fulfill the benefit to the family in the general sense. However, this patriarcal view needs to be examine based on its time and place. There are women teachers who do a great job and women teachers who do a poor job. This applies for men the same. The Hebraic and Arab view in regards to women can be disconcerting. Abraham two sons formed the lineage of two belief systems; Issac/Christianity and Ishmael/Islam. God annoints whom ever He pleases...also the pronouns of He or Him can insinuate patriarchal views. God should not even be addressed as He because this refers to man. There are times man need to learn in silence and subjection. Let us not the people of the past views influence us to argue. Can you imagine some of the politicians views or conservative views being the gospel? Always think for yourself, whether it is the bible, qur'an or talmud...think for yourself and try to live a righteous life. Righteousness has no gender neither truth.
  • Chaz on John 14
    I am so glad that he really wants us to know who he really is. So many r wrapped up in this trinitarian God the fat/son/hg theory but yet nowhere do u find this presented in scripture. What we do find is terminology like. If u have seen me u hve seen the father, why ru still asking to see the father,v7 from this point on u know him and hav what Seen him! 13-14 he makes importnt ref to In his name,why because he wants us to know that neither is there salvation in any other. If u understand that God just functioned at diffrent times doing a different thing... He created as spirit, he embodied himself as our redeemer and our savior. He sends the comforter in his name, what is the comforter? Its the HGhost read acts1/2:39. So if u refer to him as the hspirit, the spirit of Christ, U see its all him! Just alittle oneness information. mT 1 Mary would have a child and he would be called Emanual which means what? That God is with us, not 1/2 of God or A 3rd but that God himself had wrapped himself in flesh in the form of a babe to do what? Die for u and I why? because he said a spirit hath not flesh and blood as u see me have. u cant hang a spirit on the cross. So he is the fat/he is the son and he is his own agent to his own church in the form of the H/G but its all him!!

  • Cynthia on Esther 10
    The book of Esther is a book of obedience and humility. Chap. 10 evidence of Jesus' coming...not! Not even Jesus knows the day or time. Why do people keep doing that? The only thing you need to do is stay in the Word and be ready.
  • Priscilla on 1 Samuel 16:14
