  • CindyH on Joshua 5
    This verse shows us how important it is to know the people we are surrounded by. Are they for us or against us? Joshua was sure who he was serving, are we? Don't be afraid to stand for The Lord. Verse 13
  • Timothy Wayne George on Acts 26
    Can you say as Paul could say I was not disobedient to the vision? King Agrippa said almost thou has persuaded me to be a christian. How many people will be persuaded to become Christians when we too will obey the voice of God to come out of darkness to light; from the power of Satan to God. Jesus is risen, and has given us the Holy Spirit to testify to the power of Jesus Christ. I pray that we will be bold in our testimony, and that many will turn to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul said that we are counted as sheep for the slaughter, but let us trust in God who raises the dead. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, so let us be a witness for him every day. So let us be ready to hear the voice from heaven to "come up hither."
  • Robert Tucker on 1 Peter 1
    Does the revelation in v.13; mean at the second advent, or, is it applicable now as well as then? I believe both! Paul prayed in Ephesians,1:17, for the Church to receive a ''revelation in the knowledge of Him!''
  • Sherly Grace Massie on Acts 17:30
    REPENT FROM ANY DUMB IDOL! FEAR THE LORD!

    Deuteronomy 4:15-16 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

    STATUES OR IMAGES OR ANYTHING WHICH IS INTENDED TO COMPARE THE APPEARANCE OF JESUS IS AN IDOL! (Jer 10:14-16, 16:20-21, Psalm 115:4-7).
    SATAN IS DECEIVING HUMAN THROUGH THE PICTURE OF “JESUS” (IT IS NOT JESUS) AND JESUS CHRIST WHO IS TRUE AND ALIVE IS TRYING SO HARD TO WIN HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY LONGING AFTER HIM, BY REMINDS THEM ABOUT OBEDIENCE TO THE SECOND COMMANDMENT. (Jeremiah 2:11-13, Rev 13:7-9, Mal 4:4)

    Jeremiah 10:14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. 15 They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.

    This truth revealed on 21 December 2006. With God’s help, the testimony and teachings about this written on eight tittles of Good News: 1. “Devil’s Deception Revealed, Revealing Truth”, 2. “Salvation Comes! Saved By Grace Through Faith”, 3. “The TRUTH Is Come, Kingdom Which Cannot Be Moved.”, 4. “The Faith Of Yeshua”, 5. “NOW GOD COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO REPENT”, 6. “THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, GOOD NEWS!”, 7. “JESUS CHRIST THE LORD”, 8. “I Am Not Sent But Unto The Lost Sheep Of Israel”

    God calls all people everywhere to repent (Act 17:29-31),

    Those who do not repent will get the sword of God.

    Isaiah 65:12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.

    Jeremiah 16:20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods? 21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.

    Isaiah 42:8 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

    Isaiah 46:5; To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

    John 5:23 ; That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

    Repent! Fear the Lord!
  • Takirid on 1 Corinthians 5
    I notice in v9 apostle Paul said in my letter I wrote you to quit mixing with fornicators and then v10 he says not meaning entirely with the fornicators of this world or the greedy person and extortioners or idolaters. Otherwise, you would actually have to get out of the world. v11 says. But now I am writing you to quit mixing in company with anyone called a brother that is a fornicator or a greedy person or an idolator or a reviler or a drunkard or an extortioner, not even eating with such a man v12 For what do I have to do with judging those on the outside? Do you not judge those on the inside v13 while God judges those outside? "Remove the wicked man from among yourselves" After reading these verses it is clear what Paul was saying. Keeping the congragation clean removing those who call themselves our spiritual brothers or sisters, and sad to say it also means those who are related to us in the flesh. But Gods word gives us hope John 3:16 "For God loved the world so much that he gave his only begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life. The Bible sets before us the prospect of eternal life in perfection if we put faith in Yehovah's provisions for life and walk in his ways.
  • Susan Dalton on Romans 5:8
    "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

    Have you ever been in the presence of someone whose behavior made you want to pull back from them? Naturally, you did not desire to be around them. You did not want to extend yourself out to that one. In other words, you did not want to love that person.

    You also know this person cannot love you. They may relate to you, but, as they are they cannot love.

    You feel this is a one-sided relationship. You love, they do not. It does not sound like a relationship you want to invest in. It does not sound like a person you want "to love." But, that is Christ's love. That is God's love.

    When we were very unlovely, God loved us. When we could not love God, He loved us. When we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    That is love. That is the love wherewith we are to love one another.
  • Cynthia Chaffin on Acts 26
    I love it; I can just imagine Paul at this judgement. I was wondering though, was King Agrippa a Jew or Roman?
  • Stephanie on Leviticus 11
    We may have cleaner conditions and better ways to clean animals, but never does the text say that one day you can eat them. I have made the commitment to not eat from the unclean animals. In doing so, I have learned to give up part of Self and surrender. I am on the journey to become completely vegan. As to the Timothy comment, gluttony and indulgence is sinful. God planted things in the ground that are poisonous too, but you don't consume poison ivy do you? I actually think that TODAY as we have such access to great food supplies (here in the US especially) we can make the conscious decision not to eat these unclean animals, or to not eat animals at all. There is a reason why a lot of the other great religions ban consumption of swine. They are disgusting, bottom feeders who will eat anything from trash to humans. There is no reason to consume them. I find it amusing that Christians get all up in arms over meat. Think about it: God created everything in his image. We may not kill the animals ourselves as much as in the past, but we are still consuming a creature that was created in God's image. There is also scientific documentation about how much healthier vegans are than meat eaters. Vegans dont get heart attacks.
  • Peter mayers on Revelation 12:4
    It is interesting that so many view this text as meaning one third of the stars of heaven, when the verse clearly states;the third part of the stars of heaven. The third part is not the same as one third. The third part is in reality three parts after the first part and two parts before the fifth part,four parts before the seventh part and so on. So the question is, what is the third part of the stars of heaven?
  • Tammy Wood on Exodus 4:30
    I'm not sure I understand. Was it Aron or Moses that the Lord had to preform the signs before Pharaoh?
  • Matekai patrick on Luke 9:58
    I am leaving in a single room with my wife and our two sons,as much as the room is very small to fit our family,Luke 9:58 is one of the verses in the Bible that give me courage on how my Lord left his glory in heaven and came on earth to be homeless that i may have a home to belong(Heaven)and a room to stay,yet he had no were to lay his head. Dear friend, have you yet come to Jesus for Salvation? For he said except a man be born again,he can not see the kingdom of heaven(John 3:3).You must be born again.
  • Alice Lynn Bryner on Luke 5
    How odd and dumb were those who saw Jesus in the church make a man whole, eat with those who needed him and yet not believe? If I lived in those days I too, as Mary Madgalone would follow him till the end of his time on earth for he is and always will be the teacher of all teachers.
  • Kris on Proverbs 2
    Verses 21-22, does this mean heaven may be here on earth one day?? I always thought heaven to away from the earth?...
  • Garyloyd on Job 40
    God is telling Job that these animals the dinosaurs were with him (Job) in the first earth age before the attempted overthrow or katabole by satan. So we had large animals that were made of flesh but they couldn't hurt us in our spiritual bodies. I think at that time we could cross dimensions and visit these large creatures? Don't know but they lived on earth with us. Then when we were replenished and God wash the earth real good there was only bones left behind and wwhat ever God wanted to leave here.
  • Mike on 1 John 1
    To Bane's, You grew up with trust being a hard thing to do from what you have related to me. When you accepted Christ as your personal Saviour he exspect us to trust Him and those he sends our way. He also exspects us to be part of a local church.
    Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

    24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

    25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
    The Holy Spirit is residing in you and You Were baptised in the Holy Spirit the moment you accepted Christ. It dose not invole any type of works, tounges,EXC. God will show you his word in many ways from the same schripture. This is how I receive many of my blessings in life.I can recall at least 12 differnt messages over peter walking on the water. All schriptural, correct & a blessing. Think for a second--Who would want to keep you from a local church?? Christ who established the church and died for it?? or Satan who wants to steal your joy?? I must head to work so will continue later. If you tell me what town you live in I can see if I know of a good church in the area. God Bless Mike
  • Tammy needs help! Please visit Tammy's Ore Refiner to speed things up! on Exodus 2:11
    So did Moses know before he spied the task master beating A Hebrew that he was also A Hebrew?
  • Sister camille on Jeremiah 1
    Jeremiah was called a weeping prophet; sadden to see God's people fall for the lack of knowledge Hosea 4:6! If my people will turn from doing evil and put away all matters of Evil; God will save them.It is a blessing to know that God already no who you are before you are even formed in the belly of the womb!some to be sanctified and ordained as prophet;but all to be servents of the Most High GoD!He gives to us all a free will to love him.IF YOU LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.Jeremiah had a great task ahead of him he had to vr10- to root out, pull down, and destroy, throw down, to build, and to plant. Wow! How many of us are called for a Great work as this? or even be willing to go foward to do a work as God himself is calling us to do. We all are messengers of God; let's get the work done and wait for the latter rain to fall upon us. My soul longs for the comming of Christ Jesus. Amen
  • Mandy on Revelation 14:14
    Its a reference to alien intervention. Humans are created by fallens/aliens. Even in genesis the bible uses the word "gods" instead of God. Jesus came to help us find "God". With humans threatening to destroy the earth through greed, why wouldn't an alien force step in to try to wipe things out to start over, like with Noah etc etc. And ascension, doesn't that sound like being beamed up? Possibly those who make their robes white will be taken favor upon and saved, returned to the earth after a time of cleansing / purification.
  • God's classification of people. Which classification are you?
  • Tammy on Genesis 50:23
    What dose it mean when the word says ,T hey were born upon Joseph's knees?
  • Shaidi on Genesis 14:18
    The bible says He had no parents how comes its Shem who we know his lineage?
  • DondiWayneFARMER on Isaiah 58
    From the first Word of Genesis and arrival at Isaiah 58. A man was sent speaking to the times of the people. Speaking about what was given him to see. And he spoke what he saw. The commandment was to speak it very loudly. And not to hold back on the volume. Boost the intensity and the seriousness. A trumpet was the loudest thing in those days. He was told to match the intensity of an instrument that was designed for volume. Just think how the message would have been put forth in this day. Imagine not sparing wattage, or voltage to speak to a multitude of people.
    The house of Jacob. Even though Jacob is now long dead. And many matters and trends ideas and beliefs have changed since Jacob ruled. But the message was delivered saying "...the house of Jacob...",. Could the message have been addressed with another title?
    If you have read from Genesis to the 58th Book of Isaiah you can see and would understand the many times after Jacob has died and his name is still used to identify the People. Do you remember Israel? They were called Children. Do you know why. People read, people study, people call themselves Christian. Look in to yourself and ask a million questions. Ask them of God. God promises that we need that no man should teach us, and that He Himself will teach us. Okay, now don't get me wrong. When Saul protested that there must be a preacher and an ear to hear that preacher he was talking about the Gospel of the New Contract. (New Testament). The Christ told us only of an ear, and about that ear having the ability to hear. Well, with that, you have to ask about those who were born deaf.
    Then you can learn what type of hearing is truly necessary.
    Back to verse 58.
    Show My people their transgression. This is judgement. God alone is qualified to judge. Judgement is given to mankind after much study and qualifications. But God alone has perfect judgement without error.
    So to speak judgement to an entire people. You must agree that God alone is qualified. And that The message has a high percentage of being from God. Spiritually spiced to say the least.And to say that they have sins is to say that you are qualified to measure standards.

    Tell you more soon.
  • Rhonda on Leviticus 11
    I'm more confused. It says that verse 9 says fins and scales. verse 12 says no fins nor scales. Does that mean catfish are not to be eaten?
  • Thabo on Genesis 3
    The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life;....... I'm interested to know how the serpent's structure was before this punishment?
  • Dann rivera on Revelation 17
    Revelation 17:8-11 "The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains (hills), on which the woman sitteth. And there were seven kings: five have fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth to perdition."

    The Papal persecution ceased in 1798, when Napoleon Bonapart sent to Rome, exiled Pope Pius VI to Valence in France. At the same time Berthier declared an end the temporal power over much of Europe that the Catholic Church had enjoyed up to that time. It was a humiliating and abrupt end to the long rule that lasted 1260 years.

    On February 11, 1929, the Lateran Accords were signed in Rome at the Lateran Palace by Cardinal Gasparri, representing Pope Pius XI, and Mussolini, representing King Victor Emmanuel.

    Highlights of the 1929 Lateran Treaty between Italy and the Catholic Churh of Rome:

    1. The Italian State recognizd the sovereignty of the Catholic Church, and regarded the Church as an independent member of the International Community. By this agreement the Church obtained an independent state in Rome with an area of about 44 hectares.

    2. The Italian State recognized the Roman Catholic Churh as an official religion, and the Catholic Church recognized the independent kingdom of Italy.

    3. All anti-cleric laws passed by Italian Parliament since 1870 were annulled and made void.

    What the Roman Catholic Church got in 1929 was its independence and sovereignty. The Pope now as not only the supreme head of the Catholic Church universally, but also the indisputable temporal king over the state of Vatican City.

    So who are the seven Kings/Popes?

    1st - Pius XI - Feb. 11, 1929 to Feb. 10, 1939
    2nd - Pius XII - Mar. 2, 1939 to Oct. 9, 1958
    3rd - John XXIII - Oct. 28, 1058 to Jun. 3, 1963
    4th - Paul VI - Jun. 21, 1963 to Aug. 6, 1978
    5th - John Paul I - Aug. 26, 1978 to Sep. 28, 1978
    6th - John Paul II - Aug. 16, 1978 to Apr. 2, 2005
    7th - Benedict XVI - April 19, 2005 to Apr. _, 2013

    "...five have fallen, and one is" - the 6th King/Pope - John Paul II.
    "... the other one has not yet come" - 7th King/Pope - Benedict XVI, "...and when he cometh, he must continue a short space." "And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven." It was not coincidental that John was taken to the time of the 6th King/Pope. It is a divine hint by which God is guiding us to focus out attention on this particular King/Pope, as he plays a very important role in the end-time events.

    From this we can conclude that only one more King/Pope will come after Benedict XVI, and he will be the eighth. And this King/Pope, the Devil impersonating John Paul II, will restore the Beast status to the Roman Catholic Church - for during his reign persecution of GOD's people will resume again just as it was in the Middle (Dark) Ages. The beginning of the 3-1/2 days/years - 1260 days of GREAT TRIBULATION.
  • EC on Genesis 1:6
    This will help the stalmate...
    Science now confirms the literal account of genesis 1 to be true

    There are two main 'unresolved' issues perpetuating this stalemate. 1) The creation or evolution of the universe. 2) The mystery of the identity of a firmament.
    The controversy resulting in a stalemate with no resolve in visual sight clearly indicates flawed or false models unable to correspond or authenticate the literal account itself without contradicting science or reason. This has consequently resulted in two publicly displayed outcomes. 1) It has led science against the account itself to be false and 2) those that defend the account are rendered helpless with such a model to show without contradiction its validity… Either the model is flawed or the account itself is false.
    This resolving model will clearly show the account itself is indeed literally accurate, restoring its validity…
    1) The creation or evolution of the universe; Introduction

    This argument is not over the validity of the genesis account, that science now indicate to be literally true but indeed over one worldwide accepted ‘interpretation’ of the genesis account, that science has shown to be false…

    An interpretation of the account to be the creation of the ‘universe’ and that it evolved all within six days. It is this interpretation, widely accepted by Christianity that has been publicly argued, debated, scrutinized and disagreed to even within Christianity itself for hundreds of years now, from Origen in the 3rd century to present day… Indicating a false interpretation or rendering of the account of creation itself…

    This is affirmed by its inability to agree with science or reason…
    The lack of ability or power for this interpretation to correspond to any physical scientific evidence to declare or prove its validity has been detrimental to our unity. Forcing us to conform to a number of our own experimental physical models and scientific theory…
    There is no known literal interpretation of the creation account of genesis 1 accepted by science to be scientifically sound or valid…

    The most recent accepted scientific model of theory however; has publicly conceived two new implications regarding the planet and our existence…
    Our previous scientific understanding to the origin of our existence has been the evolution of the universe, from the big bang to the current planet and the eventual evolving of our existence for over 200 years…

    The Science community now publicly admonishes that ‘something else’ had to have happen to the planet inducing its inhabitants, regardless of the big bang’s universe…
    Without this second singular impacting event, there would be no life as we know it, just a nameless planet suspended in space and secondly the occurrence of this “impact theory”, divided the huge planetary size molten rock into two separate planetary size molten rocks… (Wikipedia)

    I submit; the account of this life inducing ‘dividing event’ was testified thousands of years ago by the literal record itself, before it was falsely interpreted the ‘creation of the universe’, that in fact predates the ‘dividing’ of this planet by some 14 billion years…

    This is affirmed by the ‘scientific recognized impact theory’ itself…
    The testament of the event would be the only known literal record of the account that does not contradict science or reason. The ancient genesis account of a Firmament…

    2) The mystery of the identity of a firmament; Introduction

    For thousands of years scholars and philosophers alike have pondered with what has been considered by many to be the greatest mystery of all time. Yet again, the stalemate of the most pivoting factor to the faith of man has no less than devoured his unity with scattered doubt and uncertainty…

    Our blind spot is the opening vision of our planet not known by name as of yet, with water all over it... Now as we see the planet covered in water suspended in space, if this is the only model we have, when God divides the waters from the waters we are left with only limited inconclusive scenarios of what that could look like.

    See the planet covered in water, as God divides half of the waters or so above the planet, and the remaining waters gather together to one place, where ever that might be, then at some point all the water above floods back to the planet, would that not recover the planet back to its original void state under water?

    Or the divided waters above the firmament remain above the waters under the firmament. Then our current alleged mystery is; where are the waters above? Being understood by the things that are made as it were should be clearly seen but are clearly not.
    We have no identified location for the displacement of the waters, on the earth or above it in this scenario, indicating a false model incapable of verifying the account itself… This is affirmed by the mystery of its identity…

    Our blind spot is revealed in this question; when we see the planet in space covered in water, other than the water itself, what does the planet have in common with any other planet we know of regarding its form?

    Your only answer should be; it’s round... It’s round or spherical with water all over it... What form would you say then, any planet we know of is in? Again its form is round...

    Well, according to the documented testament of the account, this planet was WITHOUT its form, covered entirely with water... I wonder what that model might look like, a PLANET, without its current form, suspended in space, covered in water… It would be the ‘true verifying model’ to test.

    To see the literal account in full go to, firmament-theresolve dot com.

    Thank you for your time,

    EC
  • Jer on Matthew 6
    Bane & The Kingdom?

    In your answer you said that’s the way I see it, that just means you have an opinion. I thank you for your reseach. I was reading Daniel 2:44, maybe this could be a key piece to in the puzzle, to finding out what the Kingdom is?

    Daniel 2:44 says:

    44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

    If the Kingdom is a pearl, then why would God set up his pearl and destroy other people’s pearls?

    Keep searching and researching. Maybe we should look up the word in the dictionary?
  • Martha on Psalms 83
    who to Worship????read!!!!
    John 4:21-24) Jesus said to her: “Believe me, woman, The hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will YOU people worship the Father. 22 YOU worship what YOU do not know; we worship what we know, because salvation originates with the Jews. 23 Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshipers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for, indeed, the Father is looking for suchlike ones to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit, and those worshiping him must worship with spirit and truth.

    John 7:16) Jesus, in turn, answered them and said: “What I teach is not mine, but belongs to him!!! that sent me.”why worship the creation rather the the creator that would'nt make sence right????
    Jehovah is his name, God is a title.
  • David on Genesis 1
    To Lyle Roy

    My brother was an atheist but the more he tried to prove it the less evidence he had, he now knows that there is more around us than what we can see with our eyes. I'm not so sure I understand it correctly, but does an atheist not believe anything spiritual,like ghost, angels, demons, God or Satan?
    When I looked at the days of creation I was puzzled also to see light created in the first day and again on the third day. Some time later I seen that in the scriptures that God does everything in the spiritual first then in the natural, It really opened the picture for me. Check out the comments I made on Jan. 24, 2012, That's what I see.
    By the way your comment says that you had a revelation and needed the bible for a reference, did it confirm or deny your revelation? And what was your initial revelation?

    Peace
  • Ricky Chambers on Revelation 1:1
    Rev.1:1 the word " revelation " means to unvail,or to uncover.When you see the word "The" at the begining of a sentence pertaining to the scriptures means "positively one". The Revelation of Jesus Christ,meaning to unvail or to The uncover.What did God give to Jesus? The things that were to come to pass,What were the things?"Prophecy"was to shortly come to pass;and he sent and signified it by his angel, Who was his angel?The Bible was written in 2 languages the old testament-Hebrew the new testament-Greek THE greek def. says "angel" means a pastor 0r messenger. The hebrew def. means to despatch as a deputy;a messenger;spec,of God angel (also a prophet,priest or teacher-ambassador,angel,king,messenger. In John 14:26 But the Comforter,which is the Ho'ly Ghost,whom the Father will send in my name,he shall teach you all things,bring all things to your remembrance,whatsoever I have said unto you. so the angel is the 'holy ghost' sent unto his servant John
