    For your son Lamontriel make sure he knows

    1 Corinthians 15:1-4

    "[1] Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; [2] By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. [3] For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; [4] And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

    and

    Philippians 4:4-9

    "[4] Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. [5] Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. [6] Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. [7] And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. [8] Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. [9] Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you."

    Telling these scriptures to him and spending time in the scriptures it will help to reduce his suicidal thoughts also have faith that God is able both you and your family have faith, (able to do what you might say?) able to give your son a peace of mind that passes all knowledge. This also goes for anyone.

    what is the power in fasting and praying?
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on John 14:26
    Your insight is amazing! Thanks for this. Is peace and comfort the same? I always believed the comforter as the Holy Spirit! Is not the Holy Spirit, more than peace? Can peace fill us up with Him? Kind of like being with him at the table, sharing a meal? Surrounded by Him, while at work! I surely find comfort in that! The comforter is in fact a person in the trinity! Peace is an attribute of Knowing the Christ. Solomon, like all the prophets, wished they had seen his day! What comfort there is, in seeing him, and knowing that he is! This is the comfort we have, knowing that He is, and He has risen and fills us up, through faith in his resurrection!
  • David on Psalms 90
    Before the mountaines were broughtforth, or euer thou hadst formed the earth and the world

    Psalms 90:2

    Someone explain because I thought the earth was the world?

    And as the bible says, let precept be upon precept and line upon line, please don't give me your opinion on this verse, give me scripture upon scripture and if it doesn't line up with that verse to the point where I can understand it I need someone else to try to explain!
  • Doug - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Food & Rainment. God/Christ only states He will provide food & raiment. Apostle Paul as well (1st Timothy 6:8)

    1st Epistle of Peter is written and starts out stating "to the strangers scattered" throughout... Why?

    This is not our world. Jesus states in the Gospel of John 14:3 that He has gone to prepare a place for us and is coming back to receive us to Himself. Again, this is not our home.
  • Izaiah hunter on Hosea 3:5
    are there other ways to repent to the heavenly father without saying the same prayer everytime?
  • Izaiah hunter on Hosea 3:5
    what does the bible say about repentance? well, the bible says that Jesus told everybody to repent and the kingdom of heaven is at hand. we have the opposition to repent because Jesus himself died for our horrible sins and our evil doings. because of him, we have peace and freedom to repent and to draw closer to him and his heavenly father. also, the bible mentions the ten commandments.

    Chris, glad to see you here! I have a question I would like for you to answer. Im confused as I read Genesis 1:27-29 . and then read Genesis 2:5.where it says there was no man to till the ground. Thanks Chris
  • Mild Bill on Revelation 18:4
    Only this week I discovered responses in my little used email account.

    mishael, you answered my post, but not my question. That's evasion, but is it intentional? Free of what? Free of what? Free of what?

    "People are given freewill." Really? Free of what? Anyone claiming we have a free will is saying we are free of sin and not dead in trespasses and sin, before being saved, so who needs Christ?
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 John 3
    Just to clarify a few things you've stated. Yes, you can cure all your children fully & everyone would rejoice in that healing. But, that cure doesn't indemnify them from contracting a further disease or illness. As people in a corrupt body, we will always be subject to physical, mental & emotional traumas, & only physical death will release us from that state. However, the Lord will give us the needed Grace to continue living & to do so joyfully & expectantly because of Who He is: our loving Heavenly Father.

    My understanding of God's part in salvation is that the sin nature is never removed; if it were, then we would be sinless, as Jesus was, & which of us could make that claim. Our salvation is dependent on God's forgiveness of our sin because of His Son's Sacrifice. In that sense our sins were taken away for He no longer charges us with them nor holds them to our account. Under the Old Covenant, the blood of animals was only a temporary covering for their sin & to secure God's forgiveness each year (Hebrews 10:4) & pointed forward when the shed Blood of Jesus would be a once only event (Romans 6:10), Him being God's Provision of the Perfect Sacrifice that gave total efficacy.

    "How can the Holy Spirit dwell inside a corrupt temple". One could also ask how could God choose to dwell between the cherubim & over the Mercy Seat in the earthly Tabernacle? God chose to be there in spite of sinful men around & on a corrupt Earth. Our temple might be corrupt & decaying, but the Spirit gives us a renewed spirit with whom He chooses to dwell beside & minister to. The old nature remains, to which Satan has his appeal, & to whom we battle day after day seeking victory over temptation & sin. For anyone to claim that they never sin after being born again, either doesn't know what sin is or is deluding themselves to believing that that is their state. And I'm not talking about a life of sin, but the sins which comes to all of us & to which we may fail to find victory.

  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Samuel 3
    Hello, I'm not sure if you'll get this or not- depends on if you check back or put in your right email.

    But you seem to be asking others to offer things to you. This site and others have lots of encouraging verses, inspirational images, and dialog. But have you first tried searching? Have you tried reading some of the Bible? I noticed you asked for comments instead of Bible verses. We should put our hope and trust in God's Word, not man's words. Have you tried praying to God? God bless.
  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Dear Dale, if this is a prayer request I'm sure you will have people praying for you. I think your assumption can be questioned, however. It sounds like you are demanding action from God as you wrote 'enough is enough' and you wrote "If God..." and you then wrote your expectations for how you would expect God to behave. Where did you come up with your expectations? Are they always 100% accurate and true? Have your expecations ever been wrong? How possibly could you know God's thoughts? I would suggest reading related scriptures in the Bible on this subject as it might offer a different perspective. There are discussions posted fairly often about why God allows imperfections and what we consider inconveniences to occur. Many of our own inconveniences are a result of our own actions, as well. Mankind seems mostly interested in their own comfort, pleasure, and fulfilling selfish meaningless desires while in this short temporary life on Earth. God has a different perspective than most people do.
  • Randy on 1 John 3
    I have children whom I Love very much. If they had a terminal disease and I had the cure, would I cure them ALL at once...(It is Finished)...or would I make them ask me every day for a small dose (repent DAILY)? You realize you are saying that even GOD can't take away All your sin...even those of the flesh. Did you know that the blood of bulls and goats not only FORGAVE sin, but cleansed the flesh from sin for a whole year. The Good News is Remission. The Old Covenant was forgiveness. How can we be Born of God and given a New nature, and still be old sinners still with sin nature. For Jesus said that you are a slave to whom you obey. Also how can the HOLY SPIRIT dwell inside a corrupt temple. For our bodies are the temple of GOD. How about believing the Full Truth. We walk by Faith, not sight. Holy to the Lord!

    Mark 13

    This is Jesus answer to the end times and how it works out .

    Notice verse 23 " But take heed : behold I have foretold you ALL things .

    Where is the rapture in this ?

    It is not mentioned as I understand this chapter . Surely Jesus told us all things . I hold to Jesus and his prophecy as being true .

  • STUDYING TO SHARE - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    I don't think that way. The Bible is not guilty of confusing or getting people off balance.

    This is Daniels age of information: Daniel 12:9-10. It is a mystery that is opening, NOW.

    I am not lecturing anyone specifically, ok? Most hindrances to Bible Study is NOT asking the Holy Spirit to HELP you to find your answers.

    I'm old, lol. I study every day. If it's a disease, I have it. It's personally rewarding and captivates me to dig even deeper to get at some truth. You need Bibles with study reference columns in the center of each page; you need a concordance; you need skill at Googling: Commentaries, History, Teachings, Maps and Genealogy Charts. I use everything.

    I watch very little TV. When it's quiet, I hear the leadings of the Holy Spirit much clearer. He is the most interesting Person I've ever known.

    You have many good questions. You're being called to Joel 2:28-29, 1 Corinthians 12. Galatians 3:25-28. You're blessed so keep studying, but remember to encourage yourself in Jesus. Sit in the sun, listen to some praise music, contemplate the weather that God moves around (Job). Smile at one person.

    In the 4 Gospels, 4 men, different occupations came to listen to Jesus. Jesus invited them to follow him. There's a prophesy in Psalms about Judas; who would betray Jesus. Mary Magdalene and other women who cooked & washed robes, etc, followed Jesus. Paul who was never married , had women that helped with various things. Thats where Googling skills come into play. Read a historians comments too.

    Jesus was a story teller which is something I love too. You have to know a story to tell it to the unsaved. My friends, we are ALL called to do the work of an evangelist. Some call it gift of gab, but I call it sharing a story, in the power of the Holy Spirit that brings the message of Christ to a heart ready to be planted by Gods Word. Plant, Water or reap harvest. (Matthew 10:27)

    A love gift to you: Malachi 3:16-18

    Mishael

    I think one day we will know all or capable of knowing all, we have been given an ernest of the spirit, 1st corinthians 13:9-12 says for now we know in part,and we prophesy in part. but when that which is perfect come that which is in part shall be done away. when i was a child, i spake as a child, i understood as a child, i thought as a child: but when i became a man, i put away childish things. for now we see through a glass, darkley; but then face to face: now i know in part; but then shall i know even as also i am known. i think god has equipt us enough in his word for this time down here on earth... and i dont think we loose any part of the stories in the bible with the different translations, god has spreaded his main msg precept upon precept, line upon line, a little here and a little there, you can tare a page out, over all it wouldnt change its main theme. the msg is intergrated, as we read with faith the holyspirit guide us to all truth.
  • CAINS CURSE Genesis 423-24 530-31 - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 14:23
    Gill's Exposition of:

    For I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt; which, as some say, were his great-grandfather Cain, and his son Tubalcain: according to a TRADITION OF THE JEWS: it was after this manner; Cain being old, and blind, and weary, sat in a thicket among the trees to rest himself; when Lamech, who was blind also, and led by young Tubalcain hunting, who seeing Cain, and taking him for a wild beast, bid Lamech draw his bow, which he did, and killed him; but coming nearer, and finding it was Cain, was wroth and angry, and slew the young man: the ARABIC WRITERS, tell the story with a little variation, and Lamech being in the woods with one of his sons, and hearing a noise in it, supposing it to be a wild beast, cast a stone, which fell upon Cain, and killed him ignorantly; and the lad that led him said, what hast thou done? thou hast killed Cain! and coming to his wives, Adah and Zillah, said to them, hear my word, he that slew Abel shall be avenged sevenfold, but Lamech seventy times seven, who killed a man with a stone, and a young man by clapping of his hands. And Gills version: he was sorry for it, made confession of it; it was to the wounding and grief of his soul, which does not agree with the wicked race of Cain: the words may be rendered: "though I have slain a man, that is nothing to you, you are not accountable for it, nor have anything to fear coming upon you by reason of that; it is to my own wounding, damage, and hurt, if to any, and not to you [the murder of Abel should be avenged on them, this being the 7th generation in which it was to be avenged, Genesis 4:15]

    Mishaels Opinion: I think TubalCain was "accidentally" killed. I first thought there was fist fight until I read this. All of the descendants of Cain died before the Flood.

    The story of Cain is told by the Arabs he lived among, and by Jewish Historians. Hopefully these commentaries will end that discussion.

    My apologies to you,

  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    I doubt if it was ever God's intention to have all aspects of history, both personal & political history, be revealed in His Holy Word. What He has provided for us is for a reason & for a season, so the things that are revealed may be useful for our knowledge & manner of living here on Earth. We would certainly love to know much more, as you say, to fill in the "gaps", but that is not required for now. There is also a certain exercise of trust & expectancy that comes when we simply have to admit that we don't have all the answers to our questions, but that God has & His only expectation of us is that we learn & live according to His revealed Word. He won't accuse anyone for ignorance when the Word doesn't reveal more information to us, but we stand before Him if we fail to obey what He has asked of us. And I believe there's plenty in the Word of God for us to learn from, revise in our hearts & fulfil in our lives.

    And besides, is it even possible that everything be written about biblical people, places & events? Just of Jesus' Life, we read in John 21:25, "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written." How our hearts & minds yearn to know more about our Lord & Saviour, yet that earnest waiting & expectation can only grow in us as we await that great day when faith becomes sight & we behold the One Whom we love, but Who first loved us by giving us of Himself completely. The spirit of Word tells me that as we long to see Him & be with Him, is also Jesus' longing for His blood-bought bride to be at His Side throughout eternity. Let's not focus on what we might be missing out from the Word's 'limited history' revealed to us, but to delight in what God has chosen to show us now for our benefit, that also instils excitement of what is to come later, both in knowledge & experience.
  • Jack C Gutknecht on Genesis 42:38
    "Why do ye such things?" (continued). But the sons disregarded such a weak and useless protest for their hearts were cold and callous and so they no longer heeded their father's feelings.

    Although Eli had no power to change the hearts of his sons, he could have prevented their ministry before the Lord, but he "restrained them not." He wanted to be kind to them but it was a false and mistaken kindness. A seasonable correction would have saved them from ruin. Eli had no need to be harsh and severe, only firm and decided in the matter of obedience. Eli was twice warned that judgment would overtake him and his sons, but such warning was lost upon him. He dearly loved his sons and could not take action against them.

    What a pitiable spectacle Eli presents! An old man of ninety, almost blind, waited to hear the result of the grim battle between the Israelites and the Philistines. How he trembled for his nation, his sons and also for the Ark of God which would be dishonored if it fell into enemy hands! Then the messenger came with news of the slaughter of his sinful sons and of the taking of the Ark. As Eli heard mention of the latter he fell off his seat by the side of a gate and died of a broken neck, yes, and of a broken heart! As is often the case, "children bring down their father's gray hairs with sorrow to the grave." (Genesis 42:38)
  • Jack C Gutknecht on Genesis 42:38
    He was an Israelite devout cleric whose children ended up so seriously that God killed them around the same time. His children were a disgraceful humiliation. They lured young ladies who helped at the love community. However Eli didn't do a thing to stop them but to request that they stop. They didn't. In opportunity a prophet accompanied astonishing news: Eli's children would kick the bucket on a solitary day, and nobody else in Eli's family would life a long life.

    Eli ['l]-jehovah is high or my god. The high priest and judge of Israel of the family of Ithamar (1 Samuel 1-4; 14:3).

    The Man Who Lacked Parental Authority

    There are few Bible men in whose character we cannot find some great and glaring fault. There is usually a dead fly in the ointment, a rent in the garment, a spot on the whitest sheet. Eli was a good man whose life was pure. He loved and delighted in God's service, but was faulty in one point. He failed to exercise the proper authority of a parent over his children.

    Eli belonged to the tribe of Levi, and for years acted as a judge and as High Priest in Israel. He lived at Shiloh in a dwelling adjoining the Temple for the greater portion of his life. We know little about him until he was well advanced in age. The first mention of him is when Hannah came to pour out her heart.

    Eli's fault which brought sorrow upon his declining years was the conduct of his own two sons, Phinehas and Hophni, who, although lacking their father's character and qualities, were yet put into the priest's office. Their conduct disgraced their high calling and shocked the people so much that they "abhorred the offering of the Lord." While Eli warned them of their shameful ways, he did not rebuke them with the severity their evil deeds merited. He should have exercised the stern authority of a father and rebuked them as a judge. Instead Eli only mildly reasoned with his sons saying: "Why do ye such things?"
