  • Theo - in Reply on Genesis 1
    As we can see in Genesis 1, the earth and darkness(sky) and waters were existed even though there's no mention that God had created them. Thus, the creation of the heavens and the earth in verse 1 let us know that God re-created the heavens and the earth when they already had existed.

    If the light of the first day was the sun, what's the sun of the fourth day(the greater light, Genesis 1:16)? And the evening and the morning were the first day, how could there be the morning before the sun was created of the fourth day? Thus it doesn't make sense if we interpret the light literally. The Light that God searched on earth was the pastor who had the word of truth and whom God was pleased with(ref. Jeremiah 3:15). Jesus said, 'I have come as a light into the world (John 12:46),' "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.(John 8:12)." And God said about Jesus who is the light, "This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!"

    God chooses a pastor to light up the darkness. Darkness means ignorant spirit(ref. 1 Thessalonians 5:48). There was only darkness before the light was existed on the first day. However, the light, the pastor who had the word of truth appeared, and the truth and untruth were divided. Just as natural light divides darkness and light, night and day.

    When there are full of dark spirits due to ignorance, choosing a possessor of truth as light is the first thing that God does when He starts re-creation. God chose pastors whom He was pleased with(Jeremiah 3:15), such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, and He was with them and created new world.

    It doesn't matter with any specific fruit species on the sixth day What we can know is that God gave the people He created, every herb that yields seed and tree whose fruit yields seed as food. Thus people became the lord of the creation and heir of God's work.

    May it be the joyous journey for you!

  • Fred Scanlan on Luke 3
    John the baptist....... Full of the holy spirit. Comes from nowhere , preaching the coming of Christ. How is it they hear him but don't believe? How is it they see a man that is come and is telling them the truth but they do not believe? His voice rings out , Oh generation of Vipers. How is it, this still does not provoke them to see and or hear. How can this one come from nowhere dressed like an animal declare these things of God. You will not see ,nor understand. because you are of the house of Satan. You will not give, nor take no more than you need, you will only see what you want to see. Remember what Jesus says,For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation. The times of visitation my friends are here !

  • Kenneth Beltran - in Reply on Genesis 1

    And thanks for your comment. To clarify, I am a born again believer -with all of my sins- past present and future paid in full by our Lord at Calvary, to which I am eternally grateful.

    To be crystal clear, my intent of the original post is NOT to cast doubt on any of the Scriptures but to have further enlightenment amongst other believers of the things that our Lord has done for us through His Creation.

    I agree that the Nephilum were destroyed along with other things of Satan's tinkering projects -which perhaps fill the void between verse 1 and 2.

    i.e. When Jesus said I saw Satan fall like lightening...' Could that have happened in verse '1 1/2' that caused the Earth be to become formless and void? Would God have started His Creation formless and void, or could He simply not speak into creating something beautiful and magnificent in the first place? See my point? A lot to unpack here, but always in praise and thanks to our Lord.

    Have a l blessed day...

    These, Rod, were your comments on "M's" Genesis 1. Reading M's comment, my gut says M is Calvinist. Much of M's comment alludes to the eternality of Jesus before He was born in Bethlehem - a paradox. Not that God couldn't do it but it's not what the KJV says. Go to these verses-John 1,10,14. I'm chopping sentences to fit this in. Beginning-Word with God, was God. Word made flesh-Jesus, born a male-only Begotten(=monogeneses-Greek, one gene) Son of God. God made Jesus genetics, placed in Mary. Mary's genetics contributed nothing to Jesus. Mary provided a womb and blood for His natural human birth though Mary supernaturally impregnated by God making his birth a miracle. Jesus genetics made special to isolate him from Adam. All born in Adam have natural sin. Jesus had none because God requires an unspotted, unblemished sacrifice. Thank God for Jesus-the only one in the universe qualified as unblemished by sin to die in our place. He intercedes for us to God. He didn't even say pray to Him. He said pray to...Our Father which art in heaven...Mary was the incubator for the growth of Jesus to birth. She is not to be venerated, prayed to and the like. She was a chaste and virtuous woman but not the mother of God. Jesus said, my Father and I are one. Greeks used the word for the ordinal number one. Wrong-He spoke Hebrew, the word Jesus used was "ehhad" which means a unit. Study what Jesus said - Father is greater than I, I can do nothing without my Father, things concerning me have an end, etc. See 1 John 4:15-Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the SON OF GOD, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. This verse settles a lot of religious mumbo jumbo. Jesus does not say believe I am God. Believe He is Son of God - read 1 Cor. 15-22--28.

    Satan's power

    Satan's power in the Mind Of Man is limited to the lies and deceptions that he can get us to believe. If we are on guard for the enemy's attacks and if we refuse to let any of the enemy's lies and deceptions remain in our mind, then Satan has no power over us. If we, both Christian and non-Christian, permit Satan to build false strongholds in OUR MIND, he gains considerable power over us, and the sad part of deception is that it is very hard for the person who is deceived to believe that they are deceived, so start early casting out the enemy's fiery darts of thoughts before they grow into deceptions and the deceptions grow into a stronghold. Ephesians 6

    Tearing down strongholds:

    For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). This verse says a great deal. We have weapons, we are in warfare, our war is not against our loved ones, but against the devil. We are told that it is our war and "we" are to initiate the attack, not God. And our weapons are not of this world, but are God's "divine power" and authority to use God's power to destroy the devil's strongholds and arguments in a person, so that the light of the truth may come in.

    Take up the sword of the Word and in His divine power, tear down those strongholds. Jesus said to His disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).

    From me: it's ok to get hopping mad at Satan and launch some heavy scriptures at Him. Resist the Devil and he must flee!!

    Cast out the demons into outer darkness and the ask God if you can have angelic support? Make sure your home is "idol free". Ask the Holy Spirit to do a walk through with you. I'll be in the Questions Room. Mishael

  • The Slaughter of the Innocent Children - in Reply on Matthew 2
    Jeremiah 15-18 Prophesy

    15 Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not. (Killed by Herod)

    16 Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.

    17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying,

    18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

    Matthew 2:13-18; the event as foretold by Jeremiah:

    13 And when they (the 3 Kings) were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

    14 When he arose, he took the young child (Jesus) and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

    15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, Jeremiah saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

    16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.

    Comment: it was a prophesy foretold hundreds of years prior. All of Gods prophesies will be fulfilled; if He tells it to a prophet. Note: the slain children went to heaven that day.

  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on 1 John 1
    Homosexuality is one result of the darkness that comes on people that reject God and follow their own imaginations (See Romans chapter 1).

    Repentance and faith in Jesus Christ is the remedy :

    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

    The LORD calls such practices abomination, which means disgusting. (Leviticus 18:22)

    In Genesis 18 and 19, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were judged to be so wicked that the LORD rained brimstone and fire upon them, utterly destroying them. The name sodomite comes from their example. Their destruction is an example to any that would consider living ungodly (2 Peter 2:6).

    Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:16

    The same Spirit beareth witness with our spirit - With the spirit of every true believer, by a testimony distinct from that of his own spirit, or the testimony of a good conscience. Happy they who enjoy this clear and constant.

    People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:16

    Romans 8:16 The Spirit himself beareth witness with our spirit that we are the children of God. The Spirit of God is one witness to the fact. Our spirit is a corroborative witness. How do each bear witness? (1) Witness is usually borne in words, but not always. God's Spirit bears witness in words. See Hebrews 10:15. The Holy Spirit shows us how we must become God's children, and how to continue the Christian life. (2) It bears testimony in our lives by its fruits (Matthew 7:16). Do we bear the fruit of the Spirit? See Galatians 5:22,23. (3) Does our own spirit testify that we "mind the things of the Spirit"? (Romans 8:5). Does our consciousness recognize its fruits, inward as well as outward? If the testimony of our spirit is that what God's Spirit witnesseth of the sons of God is true of us, then they concur in the testimony that we are the children of God.

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wondering if anybody has seen the video on youtube on Truteevee about Ron Wyatt and his sons finding the Ark of the Covenant in Jerusalem in 1982. It was located directly underneath the place where Jesus was crucified.

  • The Godhead Scriptures LET US - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Romans 1:20

    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    Colossians 2:9

    For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

    The Godhead speaking to each other, in Scripture:

    Genesis 1:26, Genesis 3:22, Genesis 11:7

    John 5:7, Book of John 10:30

    Acts 17:27-30

    The Godhead represents The Father, The Son of God, the Holy Spirit.

    Comment: many people argue on this and this is a case of: Let God be true and every man a liar. Don't twist scriptures to validate your theories.

    Jesus left heaven to come to earth and His name was the Son of man: fully God and fully human. He set aside his power to begin life as a baby, child and at age 30 he began his mission: to teach, make disciples, heal the sick, cleanse the leper's, cast out demons, doing good.

    He was put on trial for blasphemy: saying he and His Father are ONE. He was judged and ordered to be crucified. He even saved one of the thieves he was crucified next to. Buried 3 days and then He walked out of the tomb! Many people went on record having seen him walking around after resurrection. It's recorded in the Bible and human history books. His ascension back into heaven was eye witnessed. Later, Jesus knocked Paul off his horse, blinded him but other people there HEARD an audible voice speak to Paul. It was Jesus!

    Flash back to Pentecost: the Holy Spirit of God appears in the Upper Room as a roaring Wind and everyone receives His Baptism! It spills out into the street and everyone is hearing their own languages spoken! Many people were saved that day. He is spirit, so he is invisible; but unmistakably present in our world. He reveals Jesus to common people every day.

    Life is EXCITING! Why would anyone turn down so great a salvation? Copy this down & preach it to family and friends.

    Stop procrastinating!

  • Nathan Unger - in Reply on Revelation 12

    How do you distinguish your "choice" to not sin as different from you're having a hand in salvation? You are in essence able to take credit for your salvation because you have a power to obey or not! Yes or no?

    I feel like you're taking alot of liberty with the tenses of the word, specifically with Paul in Romans.

    Let me be clear I do not condone a life of sin and if a professing believer is walking in a way that is in contradiction to The Way, then they ought be cognizant of their potential jeopardy and proving themselves deceived.

    A few thougts,

    The Just Judge will judge rightly.

    Whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

    If a person walks away from their active relationship with The Lord because they do not want to be luke warm, is that not an act of faith?
  • Nathan Unger - in Reply on Revelation 12

    I walked away in accordance with our Lord's imperative to rather be "hot or cold" and not lukewarm.

    What pain. What sorrow I have caused in the 24 some years since I first "walked away" from my faith.

    Today I have been through alot. Too much tbh. But His Grace is sufficient for me. I have strong desire to walk in righteousness and please The Master Potter. To allow Him to work out the Christian life through me.

    But my journey (which included learning of the "doctrine of eternal security" in my 20's via Calvary Chapel and Fundamental Baptist circles, and especially the Gospel of John) has not been so neat and tidy. I am struggling with methamphetamine addiction and the guilt of two failed marriages. I trust Christ.

    What would you say to me or someone like me David Black? Not that I put my trust in a mans words these days, but I'm greatly interested in your take on a testimony like mine because you speak of a life that has stopped sinning.

    How would you comfort or tell someone to abandon all hope in a situation such as this? I'm interested because while I do not trust in man's words I love the Brethren and enjoy fellowship. (Just a few of what I perceive as evidence's of God's saving grace in my life)

    Awaiting your reply,

  • Nathan Unger - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi David.

    When a person quotes scripture I will never disagree. It's when we start with our exegesis that I am very very particular in agreeing or taking an opinion.

    You speak of full sanctification of the spirit. Agreed.

    So what would you say to a person who has had a muddied testimony or one who is struggling to stop sinning? How can a person repent and still have confidence in Jesus if they keep stumbling. Where does the will stop and start? Where / how does your take on faith and The Word account for the distinction of the flesh and the spirit?

    A bit of my testimony if I may. Raised by an Orthodox Jewish father and a converted from Protestant Christianity to the aforementioned mother I was taught both The Torah and about a man named Jesus who was the true Messiah respectively. My mom never gave up her faith in Jesus, on her death bed when the wrong flavor of minister came to her bed side she scolded him and said, "WE DON'T PRAY TO MARY". lol, but I digress.

    At the age of 13 I experienced an overwhelming up-springing of the aforementioned influences and felt a great hunger for the things of Faith. Now divorced my mom and my new step dad had a handful of Bibles around the house. I grabbed the first one I found, a NKJV "translation". I devoured the Gospel of Matthew. I said, "THIS IS IT! I must have Jesus!" I called on the Lord for salvation and asked mom if we could start going to church. She took me to a local Assembly of God church that her dad enjoyed here in the Valley of The Sun (PHX AZ) when he had visited. I don't know if you're familiar with AoG doctrines but they're essentially Arminian. I began to flourish until my victimization as a small child combined with the hormones of middle teen years and what I attribute to my own pride prevented me from seeking help and instead of struggling with "losing my salvation" every time a pretty girl passed in front of me in the class halls I did what little I knew from Matthew and Revelation. I walked away.
  • ADG on John 14:2
    This is literally mansions the Lord Jesus is talking about. Jesus is talking here. He even said "if it were not so, I would have told you." God is always true with His word and God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfil? - Number 23:19

    When the Lord says I am free then I am free. For He says, "So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed." - John 8:36

    That's why Paul says, "In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace." - Ephesians 1:7

    Why can't we believe a God who chose to die for the sins of many so we can attain the life everlasting? It could have been us who should be on that cross but no. Because of His richness in grace and mercy "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us". - Romans 5:8

    For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord - Romans 6:23

    For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him - 2 Corinthians 5:21

    God chose to love us even we are unlovable. We are wretched people and we need a saviour cause there is no good in us; No one is righteous, no! not one. - Romans 3:10

    What shall it profit me if I gained the whole world and lose my own soul? - Mark 8:36

    It is better for me to be in His courts than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked - Psalms 84:10

    For it is appointed for men, us, to die once but after this is judgment.

    Death is real. Hell is real.

    That's why God sent Jesus once and for all to die for many once. He is not going to do it again.

    That is why we need a Saviour. We can only be saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

  • Fred Scanlan on Luke 4
    Would the example of the temptation of Christ after his 40 days in the wilderness, be an example for us? Once we become affiliated with holy spirit and the power in him, we proclaim and perform the oracles of God! Temptation is the seeing and understanding the evil one and his ability to thwart us , through fear of not having what we need. First, affiliating all with deception with questions of the power and our relationship with God the Father. Jesus, in his time of hunger and need did not give Satan a place, did not allow him to accuse the Father through the temptation wrought in these illustrations given in the word. These words we see and hear from Christ, are our example how to deal with the evil one! With wisdom comes knowledge and power, given through faith, used in the extension of Gods kingdom. This is what the evil one hates! Remember his time is only for a season, and or seasons! We will dominate the evil one as long as we are in Christ! He has overcome him and knows the way! We cannot do these things without Christ! Pray always , pray without ceasing!
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Indeed Mishael, the Middle East continues to bubble over bringing uncertainty & tension for those over there & with implications worldwide. Even the recent signing of the Abraham Accord at the White House between Israel, UAE & Bahrain (to maintain peace & good relations with Israel) brought some signs of hope to the M.E. And up to nine other Islamic nations are planning to join that accord. But how genuine are these Islamic nations - how faithful will they be to Israel when things get sticky there whilst Iran, the Hezbollah & Turkey are dead set against the existence of Israel?

    You may be well aware of this Site, as you're well-read both with the print & visual media, but I regularly follow The Watchman, with Erick Stacklebeck giving bi-weekly talks (Tues & Thurs) on the latest 'goings on' in that part of the world & beyond. He attended the Peace Treaty signings at D.C. & gives his first hand impressions on it. Certainly, the pieces of the 'puzzle' are being seen, if not coming together, but who will be the charismatic esteemed one, recognized by the nations, who can broker a full peace deal in the M.E.?

    Even with the Covid virus showing signs of a second wave in some countries, I wonder how the on-going negative impact this will have on the economies of the world, will also weaken the hearts of men to put their trust in someone that can lead them & pull them through a time of general ruin & despair? We can but watch & pray - and pray for Christ's Body to stay true to the Lord & our Holy Faith when Satan will seek to disrupt our confidence & take away our joy & peace.
