  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Chronicles 28:4
    Richard, are you asking about prayer for salvation that comes FROM within you, or, for salvation that comes from God FOR you? Or maybe you sense being bound in some terror or heavy burden, & you seek salvation from it?

    I don't believe in man having any ability to save himself. He has tried over the ages even till now to find salvation by using religion, his own rigid disciplines or pursuits, & these will ultimately fail because salvation from the very thing that ruins us (sin) can only come from God. But if your desire is for the Salvation from God through His Son Jesus Christ or a salvation (freeing) from a burden you are unable to release, then there are answers for these.
  • Lawvawn Yisrael on James 1:22
    Why is it necessary to hide God's holy name? I've read the scriptures and I find nothing that support this action. Also, who gave man the authority to hide it?
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 1 Timothy 4:8
    Hello Kevin,

    I feel to respond to your post as this does seem to come up often today. Sometimes with some bad "myths" being made up also. So yes, Yeshua(in English phonetic) is the Lord's name in Hebrew. I believe the original was "Yehoshua" then shortened to "Yeshua". As Greek was, I'll say, more popular around the time of Christ. If you translate Yeshua letter by letter into Greek you get "Iesous"(English phonetic). Some people may believe Iesous Christos (Jesus Christ) had it's origin in the New Testament. Actually, 2 centuries before Christ's birth it(Iesous) was already in the Septuagint which was the first Greek translation of the Jewish Old Testament. Then getting to Latin Iesous would be Iesus. Then as we get to English. As the letter "J" is only about 400 years old. In the 1611 KJV Bible the Lord's name is still Iesus. I believe it was around 1629 when they started using the "J" and Jesus came about.

    So as it does sound different than Yeshua, or Joshua, it does carry the same meaning of the name. As it's translational roots trace all the way back to "Yehoshua". People may not know that Hebrew is the only language that is semantic not just phonetic. As I see people braking the word Jesus or Iesous down trying to say it has different meanings and what not. This is not true and Hebrew is the only language that has that ability. As my name Richard. Should this mean I should have a lot of money or be rich? No. Some words, and names, can be made up ,or put together, but this does not mean you can cut every word or name up, in any language, and think you can find it's meaning.

    I hope this helps a little with your question. Jesus Christ is Lord and that is the name I was saved by. If people want to call Him by His Hebrew spoken name Yeshua that's fine. Hopefully people don't think this will bring them closer to the Lord. And may our Father Bless those people who are cursing others for using Jesus Christ. Amen.

  • Kevin Kelly on 1 Timothy 4:8
    Yeshua is the LORDS birth given name . Why then is the name Jesus used in millions of conversions? Practically , the name of Yeshua is non existent in Christian circles an when it is used it almost comes under attack because It is the name of Jesus that is above every name? (Acts 4:12) - which brings me to my second point , In the original language this scripture would say Yeshua, but then isn't the whole of humanity being a bit deceived by using another name?

    Thank you an Many Blessings!

  • Evangelism on Genesis 3
    What is our part in God's plan of salvation for the lost?

    Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:20). you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth (Acts 1:8). Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

    And he said to them, Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned (Mark 16:15-16).

    But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). And we likewise are to share God's love with others.

    Hopefully the unsaved will

    Repent you therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out (Acts 3:19).

    We are called upon by God to be His representatives to the world, spreading His gospel, that we may demonstrate His love to the lost that they to may be saved.

    Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these (Mark 12:30-31). The greatest way we can show God's love to others is to spread God's saving gospel - by evangelizing.

    Without evangelism - spreading the Word of God, billions of souls would have never known the sweat salvation of God. God uses us, if we obey, to bring Him lost souls.

    If the lost condition of this world is on your heart, log in some prayer time with the Holy Spirit.

    Jesus sent the disciples out by 2's. Study how Jesus ministered to the lost.

  • The SON OF MAN Lord of the Harvest on Revelation 1
    Matthew 12:8

    For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

    Matthew 12:32

    And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the WORLD TO COME.

    Matthew 16:13

    When Jesus came...and asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

    Matthew 16:27

    For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works (saved/unsaved)

    Matthew 16:28

    Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

    Revelation 1:13

    And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

    Revelation 14:14

    And I looked, and behold a white CLOUD, and upon the CLOUD one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

    Comment: Jesus is the Son of God. After he was born to Mary and Joseph, by the Power of the Holy Spirit; Jesus was then known as the Son of Man (as in Mankind).

    He said it himself.

    He is ALL son of God, and ALL son of man (human)

    If you skip down to the last 2 verses, Jesus was seen by the Apostle John in a vision: as the Victorious Son of man about to put in His sickle and Reap the Harvest of souls.

    One of his Names is Lord of the Harvest.

    He's coming soon too. I mean no offense, but now is not a time to procrastinate and split scripture hairs over theologies of man, different Bibles, ancient UN-CANONIZED scripture.

    Human history is about to wrap up. Write this book of scripture inside your Bible cover: 2 Peter Chapter 3. Have it handy.

    The earth is already beginning to burn. It's not Global Warming; it's Almighty God!! He will PERFORM his Word.

  • Chris - in Reply on 1 John 2
    That is a very sad situation for both yourself & your husband. This is what we refer to as "having one foot in God & the other in the world". It seems there is a God-consciousness with him, yet he doesn't want to leave off the attractions that the world gives him. "Man cannot serve two masters": if he loves the world & what it offers him, then his love for God is not real - and that is called hypocrisy. 1 John 2:15, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."

    He needs spiritual counselling - there is always hope he may give attention to what another unbiased qualified person advises him, rather than from his wife. He probably needs to receive Christ's salvation that will make him new from the inside rather than subscribing to a phoney belief that his knowledge about God is all he needs. This is a very delicate situation which will see you both needing help & guidance, not only in spiritual matters but also in your marriage.

    You can always pray for God's Work to be done in his life. Is he in a position to spend some devotional time, i.e. both of you together, with God? Reading from the Bible (which he says he believes in) & from a devotional book & also to spend a little time to pray about your lives, your family, your hopes & dreams, will be useful to resetting your lives & minds towards the things of the Lord. However, if he is resistant to these things, you can only but commit him & your marriage to the Lord in personal prayer & not frustrate or antagonize your husband further. Your faithfulness & love to him in spite of his view of you, your love & trust in the Lord to help your marriage, will also speak to his heart as he witnesses these things. May the Lord help you especially at this time Leasa.
  • Joshua on Matthew 7:6
    Our duty as Jesus Christ's servants is to preach His Gospel. Can we make judgments about anyone BEFORE we tell them the Gospel? I don't think so. However, once we have preached to someone, and they react to the news of Christ as a dog/swine(they reject it, mock it, insult it etc), their blood is on their own head. We are clean.

    Acts 18:6 'And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, YOUR BLOOD BE UPON YOUR OWN HEADS; I AM CLEAN'

    And again, Acts 20:26-27 "Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of ALL MEN. For I HAVE NOT SHUNNED TO DECLARE UNTO YOU ALL the counsel of God."

    And again, Mark 6:11 "whosoever shall not receive you, NOR HEAR YOU, when ye depart thence, SHAKE OFF THE DUST UNDER YOUR FEET for a testimony AGAINST THEM. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city."

    And again, Matthew "whosoever shall not receive you, NOR HEAR YOUR WORDS, when ye depart out of that house or city, SHAKE OFF THE DUST OF YOUR FEET."

    Perhaps seeds were planted/watered by us and later that person will come to their senses, but the Bible tells us our duty is fulfilled. We depart from them and warn others.

    Matthew 7:6 'GIVE NOT that which is holy UNTO THE DOGS, neither cast ye your pearls BEFORE SWINE, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.'

    We see here, Christ Jesus never required us to babysit or go after the dogs or swine. Rather, he warns us to beware them.

    Philippians 3:2 "BEWARE OF DOGS, beware of evil workers" Dogs are people who reject the Gospel of Christ. God compares them to evil workers.

    And again, in Titus 3:10-11 "A man that is an heretick AFTER the first and second admonition REJECT; Knowing that HE THAT IS SUCH IS SUBVERTED, and SINNETH, BEING CONDEMNED OF HIMSELF.

    1. Can you tell me what Jesus meant when He told Nicodemus you must be born again?

    2. is this new birth different from Roman's 10:9?

    3. Being born of the Spirit could mean being baptized with the Holy Spirit but what does it means to be born of water?

  • Anthony Charles Ritchie on Revelation 1
    I have heard John was blinded on the Ilse. I can find no record of it. Where does this come from?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 3
    The Greek word "baptisma" seems to indicate a full immersion/submerging, yet we have to consider that in respect to Jesus' baptism, it was what we refer to as John's baptism. And we know, that this baptism was not our Christian/Believers' Baptism, as it was only an indication of a person's contrition over his sins & repentance. It couldn't mean any identification with Jesus' death & resurrection as that didn't occur yet, but it certainly looked forward to that special time when a full & true cleansing would take place.

    That is why John said, "I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?" Jesus didn't need to repent as He was sinless, so John was saying that, if anything, in your presence, I need to be rather baptized of you. So, if we take into account the Jewish baptism (tvilah) which involved full immersion/cleansing from various impurities of the flesh, then it's likely that John's baptism was also a full immersion, but for demonstrating the need for cleansing of the impurities of the heart.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 9
    I will actually respond further Jay, as I wasn't referring to your Eccl 12:7 reference. I was referring to: "Comparably, the life-force returns to where it came from-God. (Job 34:14, 15; Psalms 36:9). This does not mean that the life-force actually travels to heaven. Rather, it means that for someone who dies, the time of future life rests with God."

    So what are you referring to when you write: "the life-force (man's spirit, which you explained earlier), doesn't travel to heaven - it means the time of future life rests with God"? I'm confused as to what you are trying to say here. Where does man's spirit go upon his death, if at all? I can't see any misrepresentation of your comments on my part - just reading as given & requiring further clarification, if you so desire. Thank you.

  • Ptjones923gmailcom on Matthew 24
    Mathew 24:34.Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. This generation our Lord mentioned here is nothing other than our own generation, ie the current generation. Why? 1.It is our Lords words. 2.Fig tree denotes Israel nation. (Joel 1:7,1:12.)3.Israel reinstated in 1948 after long desolation. And now it is 70 years passed. A generation is defined in Pslam.90:10.Now it is the grace period.4.The righteous sun (the word of God)is darkening day by day by corrupt teachings.The moon that reflects light (true church)is also not giving light or in utter confusion. Pastors blames each others. Yes time is at hand. True believers be get ready.

  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 9
    That was interesting to read Jay. I do agree with your understanding of the soul & spirit of man. I could further state that the soul finds its fuller meaning in the personality & emotions of the individual, hence the soul, being an immaterial part, not only reveals the life of a person, but also his/her character.

    'Ruach' is clearly different to 'psykhe' & as you stated also comes from God giving life (breath) to the body which clothes the soul. As well, I understand man's spirit from God also functions as the means that God, by His Spirit, can communicate with man. Romans 8:16 speaks of this interaction. The spirit in us enables us to look beyond the immediate & temporal, to the One Who brought it all together, though many today stifle it preferring to understand their world & themselves, only through the soul (by reasoning & logic).

    Yet you write that on death, man's spirit doesn't return to God, whether to life or eternal death, rather it remains in 'limbo'. Am I understanding you correctly? Could you provide some Bible references or expand this thought further? Why I ask this, is that Eccl 12:7 which you quoted, speaks of this returning, or else, that man's spirit has to have a destiny, whether in a body or in a location. I understand the Ecclesiastes reference suggesting that, just as God gives a new born baby a spirit, so at death of that body, the spirit is then released & returned back to God - like a loan from God to enjoy Him & His creation. We have the accounts of the destinies of the rich man & Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31), the thief on the Cross (Luke 23:39-43) & Stephen's cry at his execution (Acts 7:55-60). All seem to suggest that our spirits remain alive, active & accountable whether in life in the body or cessation of earthly existence.
