  • Elizabeth on Isaiah 58
    What a fast, to bind up the broken hearted, to clothe the naked, to relieve the oppressed? How many things we do that are not approved by the Lord, Lord help me to surrender, and let your will be the will for my life. If thou turn away thy foot from trampling my Sabbath, what a promise of blessings shall be ours.
  • Clint on Exodus 6
    @Kyamz and others,
    With regard to questions about Gods names, Jehovah Jireh means (God will provide ), as a sacrifice ! Jehovah Tsidkenu means (Lord is our righteousness ), all throughout The Word, God wants to reveal Himself to us and does this by telling us His different names which show aspects and traits of God by these different names! It is a great study of His names...
  • Christopher Cherry on Matthew 19:29
    Is eternal life promised to the children as well, or only to the parents that gave them birth?
  • Clint on Exodus 4:30
    God told Moses what to say and what to do! Moses told Aaron what to say or do, because Moses felt he wasn’t a good speaker! Hope that helped!
  • Timothy Wayne George on Isaiah 37
    Have you received a letter or email that has troubled you? Then do what Hezekiah did, and spread it before the Lord in prayer. God alone is God, and He will not be blasphemed by other people without consequences. After Hezekiah prayed to God, the answer was given, and God moved on behalf of his servant. The angel of the Lord smote 185,000 Assyrians the next morning. God is still on the throne, and He rules in the affairs of men. All the leaders of this world are as grasshoppers, and God uses them to accomplish His will on Earth. So trust in the Lord, and do good, so shall thou dwell in the land; verily thou shall be provided for. Worry about nothing, but with prayer, and thanksgiving, let your request be made known unto to God. The peace of God will compass your mind in Christ Jesus.
  • HOSNY KHALIL on Genesis 35
    It looks like someone was telling a story, but doesn't sound God's words, if those words have been told by human, so all humans make mistakes when they tell stories, but God doesn't make mistakes or either sends prophets to get drunk and let young daughters sleep with their own father. Otherwise God was absent when his prophets did sin or fornicated with his daughters. If God allowed this to happen with a prophet and have him write this story in the bible, so, can we (as humans) do the same with our daughters? By cancelling our brain and become like animals? I need some priest to answer me please. Thanks for your reply.
  • Jah on Matthew 2
    This chapter of the book tells me Christ was a threat to Herod’s national security??? One minute, he wants to worship him then the next he wants to kill him. Thank God for dreams. It also tells me that Christ was obviously at war from day one… Everyone in those days knew the Messiah would come, when he did, some people wanted him dead. How evil is that? Will leaders of nations hand over power of their countries to Christ or God when they arrive? Or will they turn to Herod’s method and try kill them? Do leaders kill children today? Of course they do. So what has changed?
  • Martin on Exodus 6:8
    Why so many variation in the different translations?
  • Kenny kgatla on 1 John 4
  • Roland on Leviticus 20:13
    Charles I hope you remember to follow all the rest. Are you wearing modern mixed textile clothing? Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woolen and linen together - Deutronomy 22:11, also repeated in Leviticus 19:19. Also do you eat shellfish? Prawns, Mussels, Scallops? Then yeah you're due a stoning. There's a reason we no longer follow the Old Testament laws because society evolved.
  • Femi on Psalms 11
    If the foundations be destroyed, what can righteous do? In your words oh! Lord I have my strength. The blood of Jesus Christ cleansing my sins and made me to be righteous in the right hand of Almighty God. I thank you my Fortress..
  • Brother Joseph on Matthew 12:1
    I am trying to figure out why some versions say corn when others say grain. Was there a mistranslation or something else?
  • Paulokorie on Matthew 6
    It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t go to the church to pray, or we should not go to the street to preach the gospel and pray after the preaching, but we trust in God and not to be ashamed of His gospel. But you don’t have to tell him all your problems because he knows you more than you knew yourself. So why complaining?
  • Mindy on Ruth 3
    She’s good yes, but is she not prostituting for food?
  • BENARD on Psalms 118:24
    I think this is one of the Bible passages every believer must memorize every day. It is a faith saying word of God, you can imagine a jobless graduate wakes up every morning to confess that word when obviously he knows he has no job. To me it is one of the powerful word of God in the Bible, furthermore it says I will rejoice and be glad in it, honestly it takes a giant faith to confess this because it is the same Bible which says every day is filled with evil, so why rejoice and be glad? But if truly you are a child of God and a man of Faith you will recall that it is this same Bible that said in John 16:33 that be of good cheer I have overcome the world. This is a vital reason why we need to rejoice and be glad. It is an awesome word of God.
  • All these priests and vicars praising God don’t know him. What sort of man are we looking for when Christ returns? Verse 16 gives us a description of the one we wait for! He will be known all over the world, he and his army will be at war with the false Christians. This man is protected by God, and he will stand out against other men.
  • Clayton on Genesis 10:25
    In this passage, it said his days on earth were divided? What do they mean? Divided how and between what or where?
  • Clint on Genesis 2
    @Chris, it may seem that God created man twice but in reality the second mention of creation is a recap or retelling with details not mentioned the first time! I hope that helped?
  • Ken on Psalms 8:8
    Again, what scientific fact or principle is, "Oceans have natural paths in them"?
    Oceans have currents, sure, which are apparent to any sailor or coastal dweller who pays attention, but what are "natural paths" exactly?
  • Ken on Job 26:7
    What "Scientific Fact or Principle" is, "There is a place void of stars in the North"? If this is being portrayed as a statement that the earth is unsupported then a few short verses later "The pillars of the heavens quake" would seem to belie any advanced knowledge of how gravity and the Cosmos works.
  • Aurora on John 17
    Why is God's name, YHWH JEHOVAH, eliminated? It is in the King James hard copy!
  • Timothy Wayne George on Luke 12
    Luke 12:32 Fear not little flock, for it is the Father's good pleasure to give us the Kingdom. We must seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto us.
    When we remember the poor, and take up our cross daily we are laying up treasures in heaven that will not pass away. The only inheritance that we should be concerned about, is what is being stored up in heaven. Jesus is the judge, and He will have us to give an account of how we used the treasures that He gave us, for the glory of God. So be like the ravens, who neither sow or reap, and yet our heavenly Father provides for them. So how much greater are we than they?
  • Frenz on Isaiah 59
    The MAIN OBJECT IN THIS VERSE IS THE WORD OF GOD (Isaiah 55:8-11). VERSE 8, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. Verse 9, For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Verse 10, For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: Verse 11, So shall my word be that “goeth forth” out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. It seems whenever I struggle or face a tough trial there are very few places I can find refuge and strength. Often a close friend or mentor can help. Sometimes it is my spouse or my kids. Just being around family is therapeutic to the soul. However, there is one thing that never fails me, and that is the Word of God. God's Word never ceases to amaze me. It truly is a book of life. In this chapter, God said, "His Word will never return to Him void." That simply means, It will never return empty handed or in vain. Most of us understand that everything in the Word of God is profitable. However, I draw your attention to the words, "goeth forth". The Word that doesn't return void is the Word that 'goeth forth'. The Word that is profitable is the Word that is 'spoken' out of our mouth. God's Word doesn't help us if it stays on our bookshelves. God's Word doesn't accomplish what God wants it to if we don't speak it. I realize this article may be read by hundreds of preachers; however, I am not referring to preaching in this article. If the only spoken Word in our lives is the Word we preach, then we have miserably failed. Yes, we need to study, read, meditate, share and preach the Word. Yet, I am stating that we need to literally speak the Word out loud. We need to verbalize it over and over again. Not only from our pulpits, but over every situation in our own lives. If we can speak the Word to others, why can't we speak it unto ourselves? This is how our faith grows. This is how we make it through the fire.
  • A.Mike V. on Genesis 1
    Beyond my mind, beautiful, we enjoy awakening daylight as such God's creation made the choice in envy to be alike the Creator and was actually not in loving relationship by disobedience (choice). How could the first man understand death as judgment. I think the living in paradise was like Heaven without sin, closeness with God as Friend/Helper + restored by Jesus. By His coming out of death the serpent's head was destroyed? Why does Satan still have that power over lives?
  • Mike Vellinga on Genesis 2:5
    Did it not rain on the earth until the days of judgment Noah, at the flood?
  • Naphright on Isaiah 46
    To the remnant of the house of Israel, To whom can you liken The Almighty to, and make him equal, and compare him, that he may be like? He has carried you from the womb to the old age. Remember He is the only GOD and there is no one else, none like Him. So why is the Christ of the New Testament being liken to the Almighty our only redeemer?
  • Mary on 2 Samuel 21:1
    2 Samuel 21:1-9 Principle illustrated: David taking responsibility for Saul’s actions which shows David being a man after God’s own heart. There was a famine in the land of 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 Saul’s 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 other’s seed. The Gibeonites would hang those men for what they had done. The consequences from wrong doing can be devastating.. God has brought to my attention that everything I do has an influence on people. I sometimes forget that people look up to me. What I think is “why me?” I am nobody special. I am just a sinner trying to live for God. People notice when you “do” and “do not” do the right thing and live for God. Through my years, 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. God blesses and removes the chance of famine when I learn to do what is right.
  • Darryl on James 2:15
    If you feed them, give them clothing have you not given them the things needed for the body? Is there more than the body needs? James 2:15,16
  • André on Genesis 2
    Genesis 4 is the only section of the Bible that tells the story of Cain (and Abel), though they are also mentioned in few other sections of the Bible. And one section is not enough to tell one’s whole life.
    Yet the Bible says that Adam and Eve had two sons; Cain and Abel. Cain was land tiller and Abel sheep keeper. They both offered sacrifices of their fruits and God pleased only with Abel’s and was displeased with Cain’s; which caused Cain to get wroth with Abel, and ultimately slew him.
    Genesis 4:
    ‘’11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
    12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.’’
    A fugitive and vagabond shalt thou be, which means he would have no fixed settlement, he would move from place to place, he could be seen at a certain time and disappear again.
    Verse 14 says ’’Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth;’’ Now, was Cain really driven from the face of the earth? The earth is figurative of man’s community. Cain lost harmony with the community.
    Verse 16 says ‘’And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.’’ But could Cain really depart from the presence of the LORD ? No. this simply means Cain lost fellowship with GOD; otherwise he was still in face of the LORD.
    Verse 17: ‘’And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived,..’’ Now what may be the space of time between verses 16 and 17? It certainly took many years during which Adam and Eve were having other sons and daughters and Cain was coming and going as vagabond. It is in the course of this time that he got one of his siters for wife.
    Genesis 5:4 ‘’And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:’’
  • Donald Volz on 1 Samuel 18
    (I Samuel Chapter 18 verse 10)What does that mean? And it came to pass on the morrow, that the Evil Spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a Javelin in Saul's hand.
