Bible Questions Page 3

  • Anon - in Reply on Revelation 1
    I'm Christian. I worship Jesus Christ. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Not Mary or anyone else. Where in the Bible does it say to worship Mary, or anyone else? I know where it says to not worship idols.

    In Christian church the Bible is freely used, open and taught. Is this so in Catholicism? No.

    How many more shall I add to this list?
  • Carleton - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    Good evening Greg, My wife and young son went into the wilderness today to see some absolutely beautiful waterfalls created by our great God. Regarding sinners I think you understand that a death sentence was placed upon Adam and Eve and their children. Thus our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. My life had to be sacrificed by faith and repentance outside of the gate like Jesus. Fully believing this was so, like many, I could enter through the torn veil without fear and find my new life in the Mercy Seat where Jesus covers my sins. To continue to willing sin I would be again an unbeliever, but His grace is sufficient. I remain until the end of this life a sinner saved by grace and am assured of this position by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit which comforts me when I do well and reproves me when I error.

    It seems some of your concerns are outside of the believer's Kingdom (which I refer to as His Church). I love my neighbor as I understand my own unrighteousness and unworthiness. I pray for those who are at fault with the laws of their respective lands that they can repent and find grace with God and man. But for their punishment I leave it to the magistrate. As Christians we are likely the most accountable to the laws of the land because we were bought for a price and do not want to ever devalue the work of Jesus at Calvary.

    1 Corinthians 15:47

    The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

    Do we as Christians not want to be more like Him at any cost?

    Thank you for your thoughts.

  • What is the Ministry - in Reply on Matthew 28
    The fishers of men is in Matthew 4:18

    Four of Jesus's disciples were fisherman: Peter , Andrew and Brothers James and John.

    Talking of the five fold Ministry comes from Ephesians 4:11. The Holy Spirit gives gifts to the Church as He Wills; with signs following. Men cannot appoint themselves.

    We can all pray for the Holy Spirit to give us his gifts. 1 Corinthians 12. (1 Corinthians 12:28 ). 1 Peter 4:7-11

    You will know if Jesus calls you to minister.

    Find the chapter on the body of Christ. We're all part of that.

    He called me. I sprinted out to Street and made a fool of me. I crawled home. After a while the Lord said: are you through doing it your way? ( such a quiet, non- judgmental voice) I said YES!! He will be our Teacher.

    May God bless you. Mishael
  • Poch Suzara on John 10:30
    If. as Jesus revealed as a truth in the bible, also known as the GOOD BOOK, that "I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE" - John 10:30 - why would Jesus, as the only begotten Son of God, while crucified and dying on cross cry out loud: "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME?" Matthew 27:46

  • A New Heaven and a New Earth on Hebrews 12
    Revelation 8

    10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell A GREAT STAR from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

    11 And the name of THE STAR is called WORMWOOD, and the third part of the WATERS became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

    12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

    13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

    This isn't poetry from the Book of Revelation!! Those of you intent on following False Prophets!! You will not have water to drink.

    NASA already is taking photos and measurements of a star headed straight towards planet EARTH. Lots and lots of photos on Google. Guess what it's named?

    The Wormwood Star. It's not a comet and it's too big to be an asteroid.

    Since God is guiding it, they aren't going to be able to blow it up.

    It's going to make all the water bitter and not good for drinking.

    You're right about the garbage "islands" floating in our oceans now: extending itself towards Alaska currently.

    What does a GOOD and LOVING God do about this mess? He offers His Son Jesus to pay for our Sins and bring us into the family of God. We are about to embark on the greatest Mystery, the salvation of souls, and seeing Earth restored to its original beauty.

    The Godhead made all of this! He will do it again. Throw your unbelief out the window & grab onto Jesus NOW. Don't miss out so great a salvation.

  • The Earth Knows That it Will Be Burned Up - in Reply on Revelation 11:18
    2 Peter 3 < link

    There is no fixing the Earth. Too many scriptures point to the Lord setting it on fire. Even the Earth is being readied for Jesus's Return, at the 2nd Advent.

    *****

    9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise,

    and the elements shall MELT with fervent HEAT, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be BURNED up.

    11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

    12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on FIRE shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent HEAT?

    13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
  • CAUGHT UP IS THE CORRECT NAME for the Rapture of the Church - in Reply on Revelation 1
    1 Thessalonians 4

    16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    If you are looking for the chapters that mention the "Rapture", start here. Read all the references in your "center of the page reference columns, to the other passages.

    ONLY THOSE who are actively WATCHING for Jesus's Return ; and are Born Again, John 3, will go with Him! No one else.

    If you think you can circumvent the Written Word of God, you are sadly mistaken.

    Are you willing to Stand With Resolve on that anthill you have as a podium?

    This is me wiping the dust off of my shoes ..
  • Steven D Cramner on Revelation 5
    My Bible says keep the memory not the word 1 corinthians 15:2. How do you become unborn again? Born twice die once

    Born once die twice.The Bible says I'm in him and he's in me. It has nothing to do with me or you it's all about Jesus Christ. Just a sinner saved by GRACE.

    Relax and enjoy your salvation!!!

  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Dear Flossy,

    People have been praying for you. I remember your posts from before and have a few questions. Out of all the loving support you received before and suggestions given, have you taken action on those suggestions that people took the time to lovingly share with you?

    Secondly, have you questioned where your current thoughts/beliefs about yourself come from? Not all thoughts we have about ourselves are true and there are specific actions you can take immediately to resolve any false beliefs and assumptions about yourself. I believe these were shared before and I wonder what steps have you taken to progress in that?

    For instance 'I don't belong here'- is that belief from you, God or satan? Is this just a temporary feeling or is this something you believe is actually true? What is the evidence for this belief? Can you prove this is true like in a court of law or to God? Is it always true or just sometimes? Is it true for others? Is it true for me? Do you think I don't belong either? Why? How can you prove that? What is the exact criteria for 'belonging' or not, and how can anyone know if it applies to them or not? What if this thought isn't true? What if this thought is a false assumption? What if you do belong and just don't realize it for some unknown reason? What if this thought came from a bad source, like an enemy lying to you? What positive truth can you replace it with? Have you prayed to God to ask Him if any of this is true or false? Have you been reading the Bible to fill your mind with God's truth? Link

    This takes an active effort to rebuke falsehoods and negative thoughts that come from the enemy. Please reply and let me know what you're actively doing to fight against this? How do you know this isn't your gift of compassion and empathy God gave you in order to help others? What have you done to help others and help others feel welcome and that they belong?
  • HONEY of the Word - in Reply on Proverbs 14
    Psalms 34:8

    O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

    Job 6:30

    Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?

  • Christian Love on Hebrews 2
    I am NOT going to argue with any Catholics today or any other day. We all stand accountable to God for any choices that we make. It's a personal, one on one kind of accountability. Just you and Jesus at the Bema Seat.

    As is: I do not see the fruit of what is written in 1 Corinthians 13, in some of the comments being made. Where's the Love?

    Christian patience, tolerance, long-suffering?

    Let us all remember that today.

  • Richard Manus on Matthew 16:22
    I would like to submit a question in regards to the word "savourest" used in KJ version. How is this word used here in Matthew 16:23?
  • Grungebyte - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Adam,

    >>Jesus said in John 14:6 "...no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." but Catholics instead elect a Pope to do exactly the opposite- to come in between you and Jesus.

    OOPS! Now it seems that you have misinterpreted the meaning of that verse. I am positive that it has nothing to do with coming between anyone. It has to do with Salvation according to mainstream Christianity. No one comes to the Father - is saved - except by the blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Forgive me please if we are talking at cross purposes but I believe that I am right about this.

    The thing about the Pope is that he is supposed to be the Vicar of Christ - essentially Jesus's representative. According to the New Testament Christians are "of a royal priesthood" and of course do not need an earthly priest to intercede as you've pointed out. There is only one Melchizedek priest - Jesus Christ Himself - whom we pray to intercede for us during prayer.

    I agree with you Adam that Catholicism - in all probability - isn't the correct religion. That is probably true. However Catholics themselves are indeed true Christians. Why? Because they believe that Jesus Christ is their Lord and Saviour. And that - according to the Bible - is all it takes.

    May the Force be with you Adam.
  • Grungebyte - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Adam, sadly you are doing the one thing that epitomizes one of the failings of Christianity. There are pros and cons to all of the 11 living religions. I don't mean the beads and the snakes but the living religions. One of the cons or failings of Christianity is that Christians often pay more attention to dogma or to which Christian sect is more correct than to the lofty ideals of Jesus Himself.

    "Believe on me."--Jesus Christ.

    Btw, you yourself don't pay a lot of attention to the Bible either. Trust me. I'll wager that you think that Revelation is all about the future and you are also waiting for the silly Rapture. Right? The first eleven chapters of Revelation are in the PRESENT tense not future tense and the Rapture isn't Biblical. So my strong advice is to revisit your Bible.

    May the Lord be with you Adam.

  • A bible believer - in Reply on Proverbs 14
    U know what i realized? is that Ezekiel 3:1 -3 said" 1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll[What speaketh the Lord], and go speak unto the house of Israel.

    2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.

    3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness."

    And Proverbs 24:13 is like a prophetic word!
  • Lee - in Reply on 1 Maccabees 4
    Just came on here. I thought only the Catholic Church talked about the Apocrapha as though it was scripture. Surprised to see it on here. The Catholic Church needs the Apocrapha to support much of its doctrine, why read their stuff.......it was removed from KJV for a reason.
  • Michelle Maanie on Revelation 11:18
    We think we will suffer no repercussions for the tonnes of plastic we dump into the oceans, the man-made climate change, the overpopulation, the destruction of the forests for greed? We can twist this verse to whatever we want it to mean in order to exculpate ourselves, but it's clear as glass: we will suffer unless we work to end our greed-driven, self-indulgent behavior. It's happening right now. We have to work with God's gifts to us, not destroy them for money. Unfortunately people worship money more than God.
  • CHARLES JORDAN - in Reply on Genesis 6
    So, let us see....you say "sons of God" are all men in God's image.

    Mmm...are not angels sons of God ?....yes.

    Job 1 and 2 clearly refer to angels as sons of God.

    And are not all men created in the image of God ?....yes.

    And referred to as Man and son of man

    Psalms 8 verse 4 makes that distinction clear...and there are other verses too.

    And the Book of Jude 1(verse 6 ) clearly illustrates that there are fallen angels.

    Also Revelation 12 verse 9.

    Yes, there are the same disobedience problems with angels AND men.

    So, I am NOT convinced that 1 ENOCH is false.

    Did not Jesus occupy himself at length, with the casting out, of evil spirits ?....yes.

    Also, very important, is Ephesians 6 verse 10 to 18....and why we need the armour of God.

    Battlefield soldiers used armour, not so ?

    Also, the discovery of giant-sized skeletons all over the world....yet another clue.

    Their heights ranging between 10 feet to 36 feet....

    Also, just type in "giants".... and there are plenty of Old Testament verses that pop up.

    So, it is not about glorifying demons and fallen angels....no.

    It is UNDERSTANDING, that these creatures are THE REAL enemy, using human dupes via possession, to do Satan's bidding.

    Don't you think ?

    I do.

    As Ephesians 6 verse 10-18 clearly states...We wrestle not against flesh and blood, etc.
  • Grungebyte on Revelation 1
    Teresa,

    Catholics ARE Christians. Protestants erroneously conflate Catholicism with something evil strictly because the Vatican is surrounded by seven hills as in Revelation. REALLY? That is the truth. Those same nuts believe in The Rapture which was an invention by an Irish priest in 1830 after a 15-year old Irish girl related her dream to him. To this day many Christians still believe in that foolishness. btw, 2000 years ago the faction that became the Catholic also believed that Mary was the twin soul of the Master as she was also born of a virgin - Ann - as virgin births are a universal law as Mary was also immaculately conceived. But the Christian faction that later became the Protestant - to this day - vehemently disagreed with the Catholic faction believing that there can only be one virgin birth while the Catholics believed that if you can have one why not two but even that got changed about 600 years later to be born without original sin because two virgin births were difficult to swallow.

    "The Saviour of the world will be born the same way I was born [of a virgin]"--Zoroaster - 500 years before the Master walked the earth.

  • Repentance on Deuteronomy 6
    There is no trinity! God the Father is the only true God. The Son of God said so:

    "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

    - John 17:3

    Trinitarian, it is time to repent of this blatant heresy that God is a trinity. Being rebellious is as the sin of witchcraft.
