  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 8:9
    Brother Richard, Thank you for those verses. So it appears that those with the Gift of Tongues can choose to pray using that Gift (i.e. pray in an unlearned language) or can pray in a known language. But if he wanted to pray specifically about some situation, he would need to use a known language or else he won't know what he is asking (unless he has it interpreted).

    So my eventual question to brother Michael would have been: can a person, baptised & filled with the Spirit, still pray in a known language seeing that when he prays he must needs use that Gift of praying in Tongues? Or, another way of putting it: would he no longer be praying in the Spirit if he chose to use a known/learned language? And if this is the case, then how could those who only pray in a known language (like you & me), be accused of not praying in the Spirit?

    Maybe, it all boils down to whether a believer falls into that 'group' of people who spoke in Tongues when they first believed rather than a question of what language is used in prayer. I never seem to learn how all this works with those who not only have this Gift but insist that all believers must also have it. It seems the Word says one thing but a large body of believers interpret the matter differently.

    Just to let you know, I'm away on holidays presently for three weeks, so will be contributing very little, if at all, on this Site. Every blessing.

  • Adam - in Reply on Judges 7
    Hello, those are interesting questions. If you got a fishtank and stocked it full of fish, but noticed one fish harassing, assaulting, and killing the other fish through relentless mean attacks... would you show mercy to the 99% of the fish (peaceful) and kill the evil mean fish. Or would you show 'mercy' to the evil mean fish, and show no mercy or justice to the 99% of the fish and let them continue to suffer?

    Satan is pure evil and destroys countless lives, dragging everyone down. Why should evil be rewarded? Isn't rewarding evil actually harmful to everyone else who strives to do what is right?

    Maybe you like your community, like your family, and maybe have precious daughters you love. Let's say your state governor tried to show 'mercy' to a prisoner and let him out and he moved in next door. He was convicted of horrific crimes against young girls and now lives next door. And he's watching as your kids play out in the yard while you're at work. Are you 100% ok with that? What if he then assaults your daughters, are you still ok with that? Because mercy, right?

    The point is people often see one side of 'mercy' and don't always acknowlege that rewarding one person's evil can steal from others and harm them- and that's not truly merciful if you're harming others.

    So, why doesn't God just create a bunch of robots that are 100% perfect? He loved us enough to give us the freedom to choose. Which is more meaningful to you? If your spouse and kids be forced to say I love you, or if they say it voluntarily and mean it? The latter of course and that's one reason God gave you the freedom to choose to follow Him or not. He won't force you to spend eternity with Him if you don't want to.

    Finally, the 'evil' in Isaiah 45:7 means environmental evil like natural disasters, not a moral evil. God is perfect is cannot sin against Himself. He is loving and merciful and loves you enough to give you freewill. Most choose evil, but some choose good.

    God bless...
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Judges 7
    Why does God have to kill the devil, toss him in the lake of fire? Why can't Jesus baptize the devil, show him a little sympathy?

    If Isaiah 45:7 states that God creates the evil, then what is God's punishment?

    Hello Charles,

    Just to expand on the year "around 55 AD" when Paul writing the epistle to Corinth. Also you stating that the time between the Death of Jesus and His appearing to Paul on the road to Damascus being 8-9 years or 36-37 AD. I have never heard of that number. So you have learned the death of Jesus to be around 25-26 AD? I have learned that the Lord appeared to Paul sometime around 2-3 years after His death.

    As also hearing lectures from Dr Gary Habermas who expands on this timeline. Which agree with several other sites of the chronological studies of that time. As I'll just leave a simple timeline and some verses of "around" times. As no one knows the exact year of the death of Jesus Christ I will be using the year 30 AD as most like to use.

    30 AD Death of Jesus Christ.

    32-33 AD The Lord appeared to Paul on the road to Damascus Acts 9:1-20.

    35-36 AD After three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter Galatians 1:18.

    49-50 AD Then 14 years after I went up again to Jerusalem Galatians 2:1.

    50-51 AD Paul arrives at Corinth

    51-52 AD Paul was in Corinth 1.5 years and brought before Gallieo Acts 18:11-12.

    54-55 AD Paul is in Ephesus, staying there 2-3 years, which is where some believe he wrote the epistle to Corinth.

    As there was a first letter, or "previous letter", written to Corinth, from Paul, which is no longer extant. Paul noting he wrote them and epistle previously in (1 Corinthians 5:9.

    With all of these dates I'm sure they can be moved around a little as all being "about". Things we know of are the reign of Gallio to be of 51-52 AD. Which has been inscribed in stone.

    Skip also did quote (1 Corinthians 11:23. Stating that Paul did "receive of the Lord that which I also delivered unto you". Which I'm sure Skip knows. In Galatians 1:13 the word "see" is the Greek word G2477. Meaning "to find out, learn by inquiry" or "to gain knowledge of by visiting".

    Just to give some friendly information. God Bless.
  • Nya on Job 2:7
    what does this above scripture mean by ''Satan smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.''?
  • S Spencer on the Gospel - in Reply on Romans 5
    I believe there is only one way, one Gospel but preached in many different ways:

    When Paul says according to the Scriptures, "OLD TESTAMENT"

    We see THE PROMISE TO ABRAHAM-

    Galatians 3:8-9. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

    So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. ( Jews and Gentiles)

    HERE IS JOHN THE BAPTIST PLAYING A ROLE IN THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE GOSPEL.

    John 1:29. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the LAMB OF GOD, which taketh away the sin of the ""WORLD."" (Jews and Gentiles)

    THOSE LAMB SACRIFICES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SPOKE OF CHRIST DEATH FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.

    NOTICE PETER PUTTING NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TEACHING TO JEWS AND GENTILES HERE IN ACTS. pay attention to the highlighted sentences.

    Acts 15:7-11. And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.

    And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;

    """AND PUT NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND THEM,""" purifying their hearts by faith.

    Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?

    But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ """WE SHALL BE SAVED, EVEN AS THEY."""

    When the Apostles was baptizing "ritually" putting all believers (Jews and Gentiles) in one body speaks of Identifying us with his DEATH AND RESURRECTION.

    They all preached the cross and resurrection in different ways throughout the scriptures. But the same narrow way.

    Charles,

    I'm going to have to look into this deeper. You have provoked my thinking to do a more careful search of The Scriptures.
  • Steve Taplin on John 4:54
    One of the seven spirits is the spirit of counsel, I believe we are on this site for counsel to seek:

    the spirit of wisdom

    the spirit of understanding

    the spirit of knowledge...

  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Romans 8:9
    My good brother Chris,

    As I was reading today and came across these verses I thought of you and about understanding our prayers to the Lord.

    (1 Corinthians 14:14-15

    14
    For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

    15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

    Hope all is well. God Bless.

    Hello Donna!

    Those are great questions, but too broad to answer simply. In response to question #1, what specific events (passages of scripture) are you wondering if they took place in the old testament?

    Generally speaking, you cannot understand the New Testament without the Old, and you cannot understand the Old without the New. They go hand in hand. The Old Testament was a period of thousands of years leading up to the life of Christ during which much prophecy about Jesus Christ himself, among other events, was given. Each Gospel presents different perspectives of the Life of Jesus Christ and evidence of the fulfillment of Old Testament Prophecies.

    In response to question #2 The book of Matthew was the first writing after a 400 year gap, during which there was no prophetical, or other writings. It was written especially for the Jews to prove that Jesus was the predicted Messiah. Matthew reveals Him against the background of the Old Testament. This book lays a foundation for the transition from the old Dispensation of Law (The Jewish Age), to the new dispensation known as the Church age. All four Gospel's place particular emphasis on the last week of Jesus' earthly ministry...so yes, they were written after His death and resurrection.

    I hope this answers your questions...!!
  • Anne - in Reply on Judges 7
    Hello David,

    The best way to understand the verse is in context with the whole chapter. Psalm Chapter 35 is a Psalm of David: He is pleading with God for help against those that stand against him (David). Vs. 7 states there are people who are laying traps for him, for no reason. Vs. 9 specifically is David saying his response to God intervening for him will be one of glorifying God.

    Context is very important when trying to understand scripture...I hope this helps you.

    Are you saved David? Do you know for sure?

    Clarence,

    What sweet questions!

    To be saved is to be reconciled to God. In our present state, we are at enmity with God. God is perfect and God is just, we are sinners and fallen. But God devised a way for us to be brought back into a relationship with Him:

    Romans 5:9-10: 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

    You are saved by acknowledging your sin and its penalty:

    All have sinned: Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God

    The Penalty for sin is death: Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Acknowledging that Jesus Christ died to pay for your sins.

    Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    Repenting for your sins: Luke 13:3: I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish

    Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. - That is a promise.

    Just tell God that you are a sinner, in need of salvation...and that you believe Jesus Christ died for you and that you want to repent of your sins and that you want Him to save you.

    I will be praying for you Clarence! Dear Lord, please grant Clarence the clarity needed to come to you. Thank you that he is searching Lord, and thank you for giving Him the courage to ask these questions. I pray that he will be saved Lord, and that he will be able to rejoice in that salvation. In Jesus' name...Amen.

    What does it mean to be saved?

    How are you saved?

    How do I show that I believe?
  • Louis on Ephesians 4
    If The Holy Spirit is grieved , does he leave and abide in a Christian no more, seeing that God saws He will never leave us nor forsake us and Jesus saws He will be with us always?

    King David said , do not take your holy spirit from me , and that was before Christ.

    So does the Holy Spirit leave?
  • David F Chen on Judges 7
    The Spirit brought me to Psalms 35:9; meditate it over night, having more questions than answers. "my soul shall be joyful in the LORD" no doubt means in the "Word" John 1:1. however "it shall rejoice in his salvation." could mean once we are saved can be rejoice? HOW TRUE? Psalms 35:9 "And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation." My pray is that can some one take me one step further closer to the Lord? Thank you; may I hear from you soon?

    Margaret,

    "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:"Revelation 12:1

    The woman depicted here is Israel.

    This imagery harkens back to Joseph's dream:

    "And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?"Genesis 37:9-10

    His father knew it was about them: Jacob (Israel) the sun, Rachel the moon and his brothers as the stars (the 12 tribes of Israel).

    The woman brings forth a man-child, Jesus:

    "And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child."Revelation 12:13

    The woman (Israel) will flee under intense Satanic persecution for 3 1/2 years of The Great Tribulation:

    "And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."Revelation 12:14
