  • Jaanine on Exodus 17
    Where are the Amalekites now? Who are they now and what country/place can we locate them?
  • Victor on 1 Corinthians 12
    1 Corinthians Chapter 12:13

    "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, ..."

    does this one body include members from different churches? and those have already passed away?

    Dear Shannon,

    I would strongly suggest just reading the Bible with an open heart and mind and pray to God for wisdom and understanding. Seek and ye shall find. I think God wants to be sought so we may know Him.

    I would also be very cautious of everything man says and would pretty much disregard this. If you just stay in God's Word and keep at it truly seeking Him and following Jesus, I think you're on the right track.

    Let me share you a template response that anytime I hear sets off alarms to me. "You don't really don't have to _____" for example "You don't have to do __________ to be saved." Just fill in the blank, it almost doesn't even matter what people say when I hear this blank filled, because it just seems to all fit the same format. If I imagine a serpent whispering it to me and it makes it even more scary. If the Bible says one thing, but man says you don't have to do it, I tend to not believe man. I also question the motives: what is the real underlying reason for not wanting to do this or that?

    Is the goal to do the absolute bare minimum as a Christian in attempt to 'get in' to heaven? If so, that person's motives are seriously in question. I don't think God wants your bare minimum effort, but all of you. The greatest commandment is to love God with ALL your heart and ALL your soul. Is someone truly doing that if they're always looking to do only the bare minimum luke-warm effort? Maybe their heart isn't even on following Jesus, but the sin of the world as his idol, but assumes he's a saved Christian because someone told him that once. I think for that person this verse is applicable: Matthew 10:28

    God bless....

    Testimony of Baptisms

    "I had a salvation experience sorta like apostle Paul. Except I was interpreting a natal Astrology chart I had made: on Yom Kippur."

    Are you a bloodline Jew of Judah, or an Ashkenazim Jew for Jesus? I would love to hear about your ancestors too. Thank you.

    Laura,

    Do you know Earl? He said the same thing to Sissy about Ez 18:4, Small world.

    Earl Bowman - in Reply

    Sissy, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    This body (soul) of flesh we now live in can never inherit the next life.

    Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine...... the soul that sinneth it shall die.

    More should be discussed between the spirit and the soul.

    Dear Michael Eyeh, The responder "Jesse" provided an outstanding answer to your question, "Who are those of the household of faith and Why is more attention given to them?"

    If and when this website posts my comment, I want to add more information concerning this subject.
  • Dawn
    I realize that there are more than 10 commandments in the Bible. How many are there in the KJV and where can I get a list of them with scripture references for them?
  • Dawn
    According to the KJV: In Old Testament days, what chance did all the people have for going to Heaven when they died since they didn't have the shed blood of Jesus Christ yet?
  • Norman Walker
    Thanks, I just think that why make it so hard to understand when it is so simple. Lots of people are full of them selves and think they are the smartest people on earth. Why make something so simple so hard to understand? Live like a God fearing person and believe in God and Jesus Christ, Obey Gods commandments and you are good to go with no worries. I just cannot see it any other way but very very simple.
  • Building Up The Body of Jesus Christ - in Reply
    Hi Carolyn. If we have needs, we're to stop by the Church office and make known our needs. I worked in 'benevolence' in a church for 3 yrs.

    If you read through gifts, Ministries, helps; God has called people to help others. To be the body of Christ on this earth.

    Someday we'll be in heaven and all Christians will attend the Bema Seat Judgment handled by Jesus. No one goes to hell. They lose rewards.

    1 Corinthians 3:9-15

    2 Corinthians 4:13

    According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

    For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

    Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

    Every man's work shall be made manifest: for THE DAY shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

    If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a REWARD. (Search: 5 Crowns)

    If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself SHALL BE SAVED, yet so as by fire.

    COMMENT:

    Question we ask ourselves honestly: what are we building with?

    Are we building up the Body of Christ?

    Jesus: we are to be imitating; doing. If we can't Go Ye, then maybe equip those that are? Commit to pray for the laborers to be sent into the Harvest? Luke 10:2

    Isaiah 61:1-3, Psalm 147:1-3, Luke 4:18-21

    *Matthew 25: 31-46*

    I don't know anyone who gets it right all of the time. I don't. There are many great needs these days, and it's going to get worse. We elected leadership that does not know what a budget is for. Step 1: Make your requests known to God.

    I'll post the 4 Horsemen of Revelation tomorrow. Book of Revelation will commence whether we believe it or not. Google Lists. Lots of people really work hard on making scripture easier to read.
  • Believing in the Jesus that died for sins - in Reply
    Paul made it crystal clear in chapter 1 that the Christians in Corinth would stand guiltless before God on the day of the Lord. Their saving faith in Christ had been affirmed by the fact that they had received gifts from the Holy Spirit. These Corinthians are undoubtedly Christians.

    Now, though, Paul says the fact that they are saved does not mean he can call them spiritual people. They are not living as spiritual people. They are still living as if they were of the flesh. Paul compares them to a person stuck in infancy, who should have matured enough by now to be ready for the solid food of deeper Christian teaching. Instead, they're still on a newborn's all-milk diet. This is not an entirely unique problem, as the writer of Hebrews chastised his readers for a similar weakness (Hebrews 5:11-14). Instead of living in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit and according to God's wisdom about spiritual things, the Corinthian Christians are still behaving as if they were mere, unspiritual human beings (1 Corinthians 3:1-2).

    We are the temple of God the Holy Spirit. When we are born again, he comes to indwell in our hearts and He is Our Teacher; if we will ask Him to teach us? It requires Bible study, praying, and practicing quietness so we can hear the Holy Spirit's still small voice.

    He has milk, manna and meat. Scripture says to desire the pure milk. A believer that thinks they don't actually have to read the Bible, or attend church to learn: are carnal, live for fleshly pleasures: video games, beer parties, etc.

    Jesus is not fire insurance against hell. He paid it ALL on the Cross and died for our personal sin debts. Watch The video, The Passion of the Christ, directed by Mel Gibson.

    All this gets sorted out: Matthew 25:32-46 by Jesus Christ. His Bema Seat Judgment occurs before New Jerusalem. For rewards, or no rewards.

    Live for Jesus every day.

    Hello Gadd,

    I have been hearing that Israel will bomb Iran for decades. I would not rule it out, I'll believe it when I see it. If that were the case, Israel were to attack Iran, we can only hope Iran's partners will react responsibly to maintain global order. It might just trigger world war 3, but what wouldn't at this point?
  • Denise RuckerHenry- - in Reply
    Thank you OSEAS. I will keep your words in my heart. Just know? My post, the language of it, was not conversational.

    I just politely restating text book science to say color has a science. I was scraping off social narratives, keeping color to its science and separate actually. I think color is a forgotten science - people just are not taught. Hence all the parsing out of GOD's color identity matched up to what is not color science relative, and becomes incongruous to color sciences, and makes colors laws muddy. Remember: Before you were clothed in Genesis 2:67 in earth' we were already Light! Science has laws of color in Heaven and here, that create unequivocal law and order in His science. Example: World plants for example? The leaves on shrubs are green lets say? Then per color science of photosynthesis 'the sun emits' colorful rays? Yes. By color laws? The green color of the leaf attracts and pairs (as designed) to attract the red rays to grow the green plant. This is the law of color science.

    We have a GOD that chastens those He loves and you and I are obedient in devotion. Why? To keep His Kingdom's order, His peace. To the Creator's honor, no more arguing. I heard a Pastor say the other day that the opposite of 'Light' is 'dark'. Not true in fact. So I know color and Light need to be explained better. The KJV-John 8:12 is-as GOD's id is Light= Color. Absolutely 'dark' is not the 'opposite' of GOD's Light! His Light equal to dark? No. Anyway this cannot be. Anyway we know 'out of black or out of white' come all colors,and so Light wins. This is why we are told that in Heaven? We will see beautiful glorious Light only! All the colors! Now how beautiful will this be? (smile - great right?) Pretty wonderful I think that our GOD is Light and so He is Color and the color laws of Heaven bring the Peace and Light we all want. No more color agenda wars. AMEN. This will make the LORD very relieved I am sure. Much love to you friend.

    Laura,

    I am not sure if you are truly seeking an answer to John 3:13 (your original question), or if you are passing on what you believe to be the answer?

    I have read through your post several times trying to figure out what you are trying to say. Maybe I am just misunderstanding what you are saying but I am having a hard time coming up with the same understanding. What you are saying seems foreign to me. Sorry I couldn't be more help to answer your original question!
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 64:3
    To Janet. This is Wesleys commentary on this scripture. You can find the Commentary Section by entering your book, chapter, verse in the SEARCH BOX and hit the arrow.

    Wesley's Notes for Exodus 34:10

    34:10 Behold I make a covenant - When the covenant was broke, it was Israel that broke it; now it comes to be renewed, it is God that makes it. If there be quarrels, we must bear all the blame; if there be peace, God must have all the glory. Before all thy people I will do marvels - Such as the drying up of Jordan, the standing still of the sun. Marvels indeed, for they were without precedent, such as have not been done in all the earth; the people shall see, and own the work of the Lord; and they were the terror of their enemies: it is a terrible thing that I will do.

    My comment: Israel got right with God and he enabled them to destroy their enemies and chase them out. They became a terror ...

    Try word Searching the word TERROR and see if other verses are in the Bible?

    It's always interesting to me to read the other verses on the same subject.
  • Spiritual Warfare in Jobs life - in Reply on Job 19
    We see Job kids partying often, and Job wasn't sure they were making proper sacrifices. He was being careful. It's not unrighteousness. We are to pray for our children as in Deuteronomy 28; teach them.

    What we fail to see sometimes, Satan was lurking around, going to and fro. He spied Jobs fatherly concern. He used that against Job. He sorted up a storm (tornado?) and everything Job loved, was destroyed. His wife told him to curse God and die.

    1 Peter Chapter 5

    6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

    7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

    8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your ADVERSARY the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

    All Job could do was to be still and wait upon God. Myself, it showed me that we are all stronger than we think sometimes. There's a peace when you have faith that God is at work in your situation. Keep your eyes on Jesus.

    Hi Denise Rucker-Henry

    Remember: The letter KILLETH, but the Spirit giveth life. 2Cor.3:v.6

    And more: It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit,

    and they are life. John 6:v.63

    By the way, There are three that bear record in heaven (heaven? Ephesians 1:v.3), the Father, the Word, and the Holy

    Spirit: and these three are One. 1 John 5:v.7
  • Gadd on Revelation 6:14
    "New Israeli prime minister calls on world to 'wake up' on Iran nuclear deal"

    Soon after Israel bombs Iran, the world will have its day of the Lord.

    Is this not what you expected to see; thick black smoke?

    Hi Shannon.

    I agree with you, water baptism is not a requirement for salvation,

    And rather go through the scripture as usual to show the definition and it being a symbolic testimony of what Christ crucifixion and resurrection DONE FOR US.

    Let's examine the text in Acts 2:38.

    Lets see if Peter gave them two things to do or did he give them one thing to do for the remission of sins.

    1) Did Peter say unto them, Repent, and " BE " baptized?

    Or

    2) Did Peter say unto them, Repent and "GET" baptized?

    Homely example:

    You're sitting at home watching TV. Your son is standing in front of the TV,

    ( YOU TELL HIM TO SIT DOWN AND GET OUT THE WAY! )

    He does " one " thing.

    He sat down, when he did he got out the way.

    Note: ALL JEWS HERE IN ACTS.

    ( Acts 2:38. Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. )

    The jews believed in Judaism and believed their salvation rested on it.

    Jesus was announced by his forerunner "John the baptist "

    Jesus met all the criteria given by the prophecies of the old testament and the Law, He committed the miracles.

    The message to the Jews was to

    REPENT FROM UNBELIEF TO BELIEF.

    ( ACCEPTING THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB )

    So when those who repented they "WERE" Baptized.

    ( They were put into the body of believers, Identified with Christ and the Resurrection "IMMEDIATELY" AND SUPER NATURALLY, BY THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLYSPIRIT. ) and THEN we're they baptized with water to profess their faith.

    God bless.

    Thanks, that is how I feel and God said do not listen to your own understanding and I do not. I do not have any problem at all understanding what I should or should not do. It is so simple and everyone is making it so hard to understand and believe and I think they may mean well but people tend to think they are smarter than anyone else and that makes it hard on the simple minded like me. Love and obey God and you will be fine, thanks again! I do think you should read the Bible and study it but you cannot listen to everyone's opinion. All I have to do to believe is just look at this earth and everything in it and then look at the Sun which has burned a the perfect temp. since it was created and never has needed any fuel! I believe with all my heart that God created this world we live in and Jesus walked the face of the earth and died for our sins! Period.
  • David on Judges 16
    The other point that can be made here is something many parents wonder about. Samson's asked the Lord for directions on how to raise their son. They were given the instructions and giving them the benefit of the doubt they did diligently.

    However, Samson strayed and we know the story and the final outcome. My point is although the parents and family are God fearing, the child can, and many do, stray away from faith.

    On the other side of the coin- parents and families may be ungodly and don't know God; however, the child and many do, find faith and strength in the Lord.

    What do we do fathers, mothers? We trust in the Lord and all of His promises. We read, pray, and trust in the Lord God Almighty. It's not over till death.

    Thank you for your promises and for your Word.
  • Ossie on Psalms 91
    How can I defeat the devil !! That now he is haunting me to rob kill an to destroy my Life
  • TOMMY HILL on Matthew 9
    The question I have is as follows:

    Where in the bible can I find about death specifically....When we die do we wait in sleep until the world ends and then we are brought before God for judgement? or when we die do we have judgement and join god immediately after death? Reason for question is many say after a love one has passed, that he/she if with the Lord our God and looking down upon us now.

    Respectfully Submitted,

    Tommy Hill

    Johnny - If baptism is a requirement of salvation, then why did Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:17 say " For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel:"? If baptism is a requirement of salvation, don't you think the greatest missionary that ever lived (other than Jesus) would be baptizing everyone he could?

    Also, in 1 Corinthians 1:14, he said "I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;"
  • Laura - in Reply
    Jesse, is the Holy Spirit of God and Christ abiding in believers? I don't understand how we die and are not present with him and the Father. Revelation 31:22 says the new Jerusalem has no temple in it because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple thereof. If they are the temple in the new Jerusalem and they abide in man it seems that born again men are the new Jerusalem; making them the city of righteousness. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says we are the temple of God because new Jerusalem has come down from heaven to abide in men. It seems to me that since Christ is in man; bringing man to truth, then the ones that have left their bodies of flesh and now have the body of Christ (being one with Christ) are also in man doing the works of Christ. Ruling and reigning with Christ. They shall reign with Christ a thousand years (a thousand years is as one day). It seems to me this has been happening since Christ ascended into the new heaven (man).
