  • Sher on Psalms 12
    "Wow!" This is the Word that I read upon awaking 12/26/12. I was in (awe) to see it being fulfilled in my own life at present. If say I had doubt? I happened upon it again this morning on 12/27/12 and realized I had actually witnessed some of this Word become reality and come to pass (more than once) during the day, prior. I heard the Lord say: "did I not visit you with the Truth (thrice), have you any doubt as to the Word being alive?" I am truly, in "awe." Although, I must say, I've believed John 3:16 since He revealed God to me and saved my soul some 38 years ago. Some of my favorite scriptures are John 17, all and verse 9, stand out loud. He is alive today even throughout eternity. "God keeps that which (all of us) have given unto Him unto that day: Hallelujah!
  • Gary mixon on Genesis 1:26
    The problem, is that most of you (respondents) re-quote and come with a pre supposition that is not inclined to exegesis, anthropology, and ancient near east history. And therefore I am dismayed to the responses. To most scholars - we turmoil of the translation of Hebrew. The known errors from Hebrew to Greek are numerous at best, let alone the translations to the Septuagint (Latin), which become astronomical. The fact remains that ONE POSSIBILITY OF TRANSLATION of the above text is a plethora or numerous [gods]. It's like the many mysteries of the Torah, law and prophets. One other being, the Yam Suf, or fresh water reeds crossing, Jacobís ladder, etc. Believing and enforcing dogma, breeds criticism to violent ends, mostly due the fact that the ignorant choose not to learn or study, but to believe and vehemently enforce a dogma. So very sad, that laymen have an opinion of any subject due to lack of empirical or critical experience. I can go on and on here with facts.... but why bother?
  • Amir on John 16
    Please let's read the 7th verse and the 13th with this clarity: Jesus is God, Father is God and the spirit is God, is that right? If yes, does that mean that it is expedient for you that God goes away: for if God goes not away, the God will not come unto you; but if God departs, God will send God unto you. And at the 13th says that God the spirit of truth will not speak of God self but God hears what God shall speak and God shall guide you in all truth!! Please explain this to me. Thanks in advance.
  • Brownavon7 on Matthew 23:9
    Very strong especially against the Catholic church!!! Will Father God forgive them?
  • Jay on Mark 14
    @Jacob,
    I would like to know if you have biblical scripture to verify your remarks about the sticker? Also there is biblical evidence that people that want to run around naked and cut on themselves are possessed with an unclean spirit(s), Mark 5:1-15. The man was found sitting (calm), clothed, and in his right mind after unclean spirit was come out.
  • Vincent on Luke 2
    Every time I read Luke 2, my heart is filled with joy and peace settles over me, knowing that this child lives in my heart and is my Salvation. Then I read people trying to figure out what the lineage of the Christ was/is. And I just have to marvel at the ignorance expressed in these conjectures. What difference does it make and how is it any of our business? God sent his son to be born of Mary, a virgin. That should be enough for any believer.
  • Ciprince Ikwuagwu on Romans 8
    Truly, I so much love this epistle of Apostle Paul to the Romans. The truth of the whole matter is, that Christ is not a man of flesh and blood to be worshiped in carnality. And there's no condemnation to them that are born again in the Holy Ghost. Now, the whole creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God, and that is their expectation. Who are these sons they're expecting? They're men who know their God, who call God their father because they hear, live, and move by Him. And I thank God that in this age called 'kingdom age', the sons of God are being made. Men who will not break their ranks, nor compromise the standards given to them, men who understand the current program of God in their age, because in every age there's a program of God which one. And I pray that lets the manifestation of the sons of God be seen by all so that they may know that the Word of God is truth.
  • Robin atwater on Romans 6
    Romans 6 doesn't talk about water baptism. It says we must be baptized into His death. The thief on the cross is a perfect picture of this. He was not water baptized - but shared in Christís death because of his faith. Because he was crucified with Christ (baptized into His death) nevertheless he lived. So also we are baptized into His death, in the spiritual sense when we place our faith in His death. The obedience that is required of us is Christ's obedience. If you back up to the end of Romans 5 you will see that by one Man's obedience all were made perfect. That one Man is Christ. What are we doing trying to be made perfect by our efforts? Unless you are talking about being obedient to the Gospel- which is just believing. And at that point, the sin nature is made inoperable and no longer dominates you (not sinless perfection, but still not dominating your life). This is what it is meant by "He who is dead, is free from the sin (nature)." Our faith plunges us into His death. Verse 6 explains, in the original Greek, that it is not the sin nature that dies, but it is made inoperable when we die. Thus, I am crucified with Christ. We gain that position by faith alone in His death. It is not obedience to The Law, or any law. Our labour is to rest. We simply believe. If you'd like to hear more teaching on Romans 6, go to thecross.tv and click on Bible College. It will explain more to you how you can be free. Praise God!
  • Jay on Mark 13
    @Elizabeth Lee,
    Verse 32- Here again we must know the period of time and which Jesus is making reference to. This is why one must find a good bible believing church to help in the study of the scriptures (Acts 8:26-35). This is another parable as in all parables that Jesus uses a physical to explain a spiritual.
    1. If Jesus is not God, there is no hope of us being saved and we are lost in our sins and destined for eternal hell (I Corinthians 15:12-19);
    2. When Jesus is making reference to the Jews he is known as the son of man (verse 34). Jesus is informing us that we can know the season when we are getting close to the 2nd advent by watching is real (fig tree) and other events in the world;
    3. As the son of man he is 100% man and that part of the divine nature was just not privy to the exact day and hour of Christ returns;
    4. We are to be in ready mode at all times, this is why it is called living by faith not by sight (II Corinthians 5:7);
    5. There are some of Godís divine nature he chose not to bring with him when he came to earth as our saviour and I suppose this was one of them.
  • Walter on Job 38
    I have thoughts about the snow and hail being reserved for the day of battle and war. Could this be the war Armageddon as mentioned in the book of Revelation 16:16?
  • Romy on Psalms 83:18
    Many bible translators agreed with the Jewish tradition of omitting or changing the Divine name. But what did Jesus said about the Jews? Matthew 15:6 "and so you have made the word of God invalid because of your tradition."
  • Bob on Jonah 4
    Jonah is like many Christians. We either pray for or desire the salvation of the most wicked people in the world. Only God is pure love and wants all to go to heaven. How many Christians prayed for the salvation of Hitler?
  • Leslie on Hebrews 10:12
    Jesus died for our past, present and future sins and God will not remember our sins anymore and Jesus will reward us for how we lived in this world, not judge us, when He returns. Yet, preachers still tell people they are going to hell for breaking the Ten Commandments and cause self-condemnation in their minds. What is the Truth?
  • Mas on Revelation 1
    @Marc,
    Jesus is presented that way, because that is what he is.
    Like the President of the United States, he is the Chief of Executive, Chief of Government, Commander in Chief of the US Armies. Is it wrong if he is presented with all such titles? But I think depending on situations, some titles may prevail against others.
    So nothing wrong in all that.
    God bless you.
  • Anon on Ezekiel 34:29
    Ezekiel 34:29 declares ďAnd I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any moreĒ.
    What plant is it about? Because some suggest it is Hemp.
  • Kelvin on Acts 1
    These rumours confirm the bible as the absolute word of GOD, YES he is out of the heavenly Doors, he is surely coming back again. BUT WHEN? Psalms 119:89, Acts 1:7, Mathew 24:43-47 and...... In a twinkling of an eye.
  • Marc on Revelation 1
    Why is Jesus 'introduced' as the faithful witness, the first begotten of the dead and the prince of the kings of the earth? It seems less than flattering for the son of God...
  • Vincent on John 10
    Like a lot of you, I have struggled with the understanding of the Holy Trinity. I sometimes think of the hymn Abide In Me (I believe that is the title) with the line "God in three persons, blessed Trinity" it plainly is saying that God is also the Son and Holy Spirit. A local pastor who had gained some widespread renown, said, God the Father is all there is, The Holy Spirit is all we will feel, and Jesus is all we will ever see. For now this works for me until someone convinces me differently. But isn't the reality of everything based on the love we have for Him in our hearts and the salvation of everlasting life as the promise?
  • Don Wade on 2 Peter 1:19
    A word of prophecy MORE SURE THAN WHAT? From the context in verses immediately preceding this verse is a declaration that the things being declared are not mere fables - as attested to by the voice of God from the Holy mount - and EVEN MORE SO ["more sure"] by the unfaltering fulfillment of all prophecy. This is God's assurance that He is the only God - Isaiah 46:9-10 KJV, Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, {10} Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.
  • Duncan on Genesis 6:4
    Am I wrong in thinking that Angels can not reproduce. However, is it being said that when they were kicked out of heaven, did they regain this ability to reproduce?
  • Ramesha on John 14:6
    How can it be possible that in the whole universe, composed of what we now know to be billions of galaxies, which are certainly inhabited by who knows how many trillion of creatures, there was only one being through which God's grace could come??? What about those poor fellas born in galaxies so far away from earth as to be impossible for them to even have heard the name of Jesus? How could they be saved? The God I love could never be so unfair toward any of His creatures! Paramhansa Yogananda's interpretation above is the one that makes the most sense to me, and makes me think of God with love, rather than with fear.
  • Heather on Psalms 15:4
    In whose eyes a vile person is despised, But he honors those who fear the Lord; He who swears to his own hurt and does not change. Psalms 15:4 I don't understand what this means? A bad person is despised, He honors who fear the Lord...why would anyone fear the Lord? He is one who is good to us. Swearing to your own hurt and not making a change. Is this talking about people who are in bad situations and they know it and they don't get out of them? Or is it talking about people who behave badly and know it and don't change?
  • Timothy Wayne George on Matthew 27
    It was because of blasphemy that the chief priest was accusing Jesus before Pilate. Just as Peter said, when Jesus asked whom do the people call me? Peter responded thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus told Peter flesh and blood hath not revealed this unto you, but my Spirit. Judas was convinced that he had betrayed innocent blood, but he was lost when he committed suicide. When Jesus comes in the Second Advent, the Jews will look upon Him whom they have pierced, and say blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD.
  • Jesķs on Zephaniah 3:9
    If God has a name then why do some bibles choose to leave it out?
  • Steve Opara on Deuteronomy 22:5
    God's word is infallible. We should ask ourselves; when did women begin to wear pants? Does the word 'unisex' ring any bell? What about 'gender equality'? All these came began to surface at the advent of the Feminist Movement of the Twentieth Century which was borne out of supposedly marginalization of the womenfolk. I do not want to go into details. You can do some research on this. My major concern is that the Devil is always opposed to God's word with his infamous "...hath God said..."(Genesis 3:1) but the Church is ignorant of his devices! Women began to wear pants to show that "what a man can do, a woman can do even better"! This is against Scriptures which say women are weaker vessels (1 Peter 3:17). This is the way of the world and we are NOT to love it (1 John 2:15). A man reacts to what he sees, a woman to what she hears. Today, women have gone out of their way not to wear pants alone, but even to wear 'sexy' pants that only reveal parts of their bodies. This is evil in God's sight and the whole of Christendom should rise up against this device of the Enemy to manipulate the Church. What the Spirit says, he who has ears let him hear! God bless you all.
  • Insight 777 on Daniel 2
    After study this is what I believe is described in Daniel. The image in the dream is of a fighter jet, the F-22 (please find out a photo online). The super bomber American F-22 Raptor, a photo of it in flight needs to be seen. How would you describe this warplane if you were living in the past and had never seen a plane? The head is gold (F-22 dome is infused with real gold). The arms are silver. The two circular/diamond shapes by the nose cone described as "breasts" are silver colour. The F-22 in flight with the bottom section open, this "belly" colour is bronze colour. The "feet" of the plane (no one had seen rubber in this ancient time) might be described as iron clay (malleable clay). "A stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, were together broken into pieces, and they became like chaff on the summer threshing-floors; and the wind carried them away, so that no trace was found of them: and the stone that struck the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth" Daniel 2:34-35. The Stone = nuclear missile and the mountain is a great nuclear mushroom cloud. The nuclear fallout covers the world via jet-stream.
  • Ron on Genesis 1:3
    I have been told there were beings before Adam and Eve. And God was not pleased with them. They were not made in Godís image. True or false?
  • Ian on Jeremiah 3
    Anyone here picking up on the green trees? It is also mentioned in Jeremiah 10:2-4. The Catholics adopted Tummuzeís birthday and called it Christís. The green trees we are warned about here are today called Christmas trees. This is a historical fact easily researchable. All preachers keeping Sunday and calling it the Lordís day are false prophets. Mark 2:28, Jesus clearly calls himself Lord of the Sabbath. Again the Catholics in 364 made the Canon Law XX1X that punished Christians by death for keeping Godís/Jesusí Sabbath and not worshipping on Sunday. About the 1260 years called the dark ages, Ezekiel 8:12-18 warns us about worshipping Tummuz and facing east, when the sun comes up. Tammuz is the Baal sun, godís son. It's his birthday the pagans observed and the Catholics adopted. All I have written is historical fact and most Christians like me don't know. God blessed me just this year with eyes to see and ears to hear how most Christians including myself are deceived. Jesus warns us many times how many will call him Lord but he won't know them. He is talking about Christians, atheists and other religions that don't call him Lord. Revelation 22:18-19 warns us about what will happen to those who add or take away from scripture. Sunday is not the Lordís day and it has never been hallowed and commanded to be kept holy and rested on. Anyone wanting websites with proof both from the bible and other websites, I will gladly forward from my email if you respond here. Be a Berean, and prove all things.
  • Jane on Genesis 2
    Chapter 1 sheds a lot of light on not only the creation of the temporal earth but also the spiritual. In verse 1 it adds, "...and all the host of themĒ. We can ask, who are they? Then in verse 5 it reads "And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground". In other words we were created spiritually before we and all the earth were created temporally (physically). Our origins come from heaven. That is why the Lord knew us before we were ever born.
  • Ron on Genesis 1:2
    It is very hard for me to understand, was the water frozen? Was all the earth cool, it was without form.
