  • Mishael On The Harvest - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11
    Instead of washing your mouth out with soap (yes, they did that)>>> you renew your mind With the washing of the Word of God.

    Studying takes time, lots of time! First you need to be baptized into the Holy Spirit so you can understand what you're reading. He is your Teacher.

    Jesus said to Follow Him, so you gotta get boots on and see which way he's goin.

    A new song: if you're saved and you know it..... tell someone. :D

    That's when you find out people have questions and you're not sure about the answers.

    Look. Everybody else is out of the closet, so should be Christians. Then there's the fact that our country kicked Jesus out of schools in 1962.

    In 1973, Roe vs Wade made it legal to abort college tuition payers who would become future taxpayers so your future as a retiree would be secure too. No one anticipated future fallout from that. I asked God what can we do, and He said he was going to take care of it! Did you know all the little almost babies are in heaven now, alive and well. Heaven is going to be fantastic. And there will be pizza too.

    If you draw close to God so that your footsteps are almost on His, you will learn many things. He's the most interesting person I ever met. Study the relationship between Father and Son; Son and Holy Spirit. What do they say about each other? What do they do together? Look at this planet and the universe and note all the sheer numbers and varieties of each species, landscapes, vegetation's. Imprint your memories. Isaiah 51:6,

    2nd Peter 3:10-12. New Jerusalem will be even more beautifully adorned.

    What an exciting time for you. We are the generation that will NOT pass away till all these things happen.

    You may be the workers of the Lord of the Harvest. Praise God.

    Now go look up all these scriptures :)

    Who's sleeping? We have to wash clothes & fold them too. Read some of the history at the bottom of this page. Hit it hard all weekend...
  • Amadeus on Job 17:12
    My father quotes Job 17:12 quite often, citing that it refers to people who stay up at night and sleep during the day, thereby reversing the normal order of things (sleep during the night, awake during the day), insinuating that somehow tampering with this order is "wrong".

    How can we accurately understand the true meaning of this verse in its proper context?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 15
    God promised Abraham he would be the Father of MANY NATIONS.

    Genesis 17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of MANY many nations have I made thee.

    If the "Jews" are all of Abraham, where are all these MANY "jewish nations"...?

    There is only one and it was created by the antichrist United Nations and one is not many.

    Either God lied (impossible) or the Jews can be not all of Israel.

    Where are the MANY JEWISH NATIONS of Abraham?

    Judah and Israel were not the same people. God divorced Israel and not Judah. One tribe is not many

    Jeremiah 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of DIVORCE; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

    The Lord DIVORCED ISRAEL

    Israel and judah had wars and different kings as well as different capitols. Jerusalem capitol of Judah.

    Samaria capitol of Israel.

    2 Kings 8:16 ...Joram the son of Ahab KING of ISRAEL, Jehoshaphat being then KING of JUDAH, ...

    1 Kings 21:1 ....had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel, hard by the PALACE of Ahab KING of SAMARIA.

    Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

    this verse says a new covenant with both Israel AND Judah. So how can they be the same?

    Hosea 1:10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

    Romans 9:26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

    Galatians 3:29. - And if ye be Christ's, then ARE ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
  • Amanda - in Reply on Proverbs 8:32
    Blessed is the man that heareth me, daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    hearing..........and listening for His teachings

    watching ........ with you eyes constantly on God

    waiting........... for God's return and His instructions

    My view.?

    God is Good!!
  • Amanda - in Reply on Proverbs 24:33
    Hi

    Yes definitely important to get your sleep.

    Did you think for a minute that this might be a spiritual condition of a soul?.... Too much slumber, too much sleep...leads to walls broken down (fences) and fields full of thorns (thoughts).

    So yes get your sleep, but dont neglect your spiritual life.

    God is good!!
  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 24:33
    Hello, good question. It's necessary for us to get adequate sleep in order to function. Jesus slept- even slept on a boat during a storm, so he was probably pretty tired. So, I think getting 8 hours sleep is normal and good. Perhaps slothful means something more severe, like someone sleeping all day. 15-20 hours and doing nothing and accomplishing nothing. I suspect that is closer to what a sloth means. The sloth animal sleeps 15-18 hours a day.
  • John - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    "I will put my Law in their minds, and write it on their hearts;...and they shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them." Jeremiah 24:7

    That doesn't sound like an optional statement. God says he will do it, it will happen. In this age or ages to come.

    All men who have lived will go through God's fire in the ages to come to burn away their flesh (sin, old man, old nature) the ones who succeed in this age, are the overcomers, the first born, who make it to the first resurrection, and reign with Christ for 1000 years on the Earth.

    That is part of our inheritance.

    The fire is not literal, it is the fire of God. For example when we deny our fleshly desires, and hear his voice, and heed it, it hurts. To not get your way, and die to your sinful desires and to take up that cross daily, and standing true to him among pagans and withstanding being mocked for walking with him, that is going through the fire.

    How can mainstream Christians reconcile Romans 14:11

    for it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God."

    Do Christians really think sinners will be forced to confess and bow? And when they do God will still throw them in a literal fire to burn forever? How ridiculous is that?

    I'm thankful we have a Creator that is ALL Loving, ALL Merciful, and All Powerful.

    With those traits combined, I really don't think he will let a soul he has created, to be wasted.

    1 Corinthians 15:22

    For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all will be made alive.
  • KWAW on Proverbs 24:33
    the bible says in proverbs chapter 24:33 "Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man"

    but according to studies, it is essential for man to have at least 8 hours of sleep, to help the brain function properly coupled with other benefits derived from having a good 8 hours of sleep.

    i am a student, and also very passionate about my ambitions of becoming a successful business mogul. so therefore which advise do i heed to.

    if i keep up learning and researching and avoid sleep....maximum 2-3hours of sleep only out of 24 hours...would that be helpful?
  • Willie on Isaiah 43:11
    Ok verse 25 says he blots out or transgressions for his sake, can anyone explain to me how I can be forgiven if I willfully sinned knowing it was wrong when i did it. I've repented but feel do distant from God. I know i am not the only one i read a lot of comments about people not feeling forgiven. Someone help
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    Actually in Genesis 4 is the account of Cain killing Abel. Cain was cursed and marked for death.

    When Seth was born, the genealogy restarted again. His was the seed that Jesus would be born through.

    All genealogy follows the bloodline of Jesus.

    Mary and Joseph were remote cousins from the bloodline of King David.

    Daughters were only included in the genealogy of the bloodline of Jesus if they were in that line.

    What does all this mean to us? God keeps record of all humans and children conceived to them. We're on His radar so-to-speak.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 7:5
    Barbara: Prepare before witnessing. Pray to the Lord of the Harvest; to send people your way that are ready to hear & seeking God.

    Ask them if they've ever told a lie; stolen something (like a pen or sticky notes from work)?

    Ever wanted the house or a car of the neighbors?

    Ten Commandments things. See if they will admit to being a liar or thief.

    Then tell them if they've even broke one of those commandments, they are guilty of all 10.

    Ask them if they believe Jesus is the Son of God. He was born through a virgin. He lived a sinless life. He was crucified for the sins of the whole world; That he rose back to life on the 3rd day; he was seen by 500 people after resurrection; that he returned To heaven to sit at Gods right hand and make intercession for all saints.

    Yep. I expect you to look up those scriptures.

    Study to show yourself approved. A workman that doesn't need to be ashamed.

    If you're prayed up; studied up, you'll have more success. Jesus wants us to follow Him. That means being ready to share what you know & what you have believed.

    Invite the newborns to attend at your Church. They need to tell someone that they got saved! And to receive the Holy Spirit by corporate prayer.

    You will have much success; and receive a soul winners crown. :D

    Never be discouraged. Ask God to rain on every seed you've planted. Pray lots & lots.
  • Jesse - in Reply on John 5:43
    Amen, very well said!!!
  • Mishael on John 5:43
    Carlos: can't we agree to disagree?

    JESUS said watch and be ready; keep your lamps filled with oil of the Holy Spirit. Period.
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 15
    Minnie Evans, That is a good question. Here is what I know. God didn't choose the Jews. He created them, Isaiah 43:1. So, why are they called the Chosen People? What were they chosen for? Better yet, what did God create Israel for? Was there a purpose? I would like to hear opinions on this.
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on John 5:43
    Ann Hering, The Bible is clear. See Matthew 24:29. There are differences of opinion on when Christ will return and if there will be an appearing before the coming. But the Scriptures are specific. See 2 Timothy 2. Perhaps you are right and we will be taken away before what Christ calls the Great Tribulation. That would be very nice, but it is unrealistic. Not only that, it is not Biblical.

    If you take everything that is said about the Rapture and the 2nd Coming and separate them, which the Bible does not do, you are left with the same thing. Everything that is said about the Rapture falls in line with what is said about the Coming. If we say Paul distinguishes between these two events, we would contradict what he says.

    1. The Bible never says the Rapture is before the Tribulation.

    2. The Bible says that Christ said the Rapture is Immediately After the Tribulation.

    3. The same events are attached to both (Trumpets, Clouds, Gathering, In the Air, Angels, Thief in the Night).

    Where does the Bible contradict the words of Christ in Matthew 24:29?

    Where does the Bible specifically say the Rapture is before the Tribulation?

    But what is the real significance of what Christ and Paul said? Why is it important for Christians to know the truth about when the Rapture will take place?

    I think I know the arguments, but if you list them, we can all discuss them one by one.
  • D.J. on Matthew 24:38
    If Cain and Abel are the first two sons born to Adam, then why does Adam's genealogy begin with Seth? Last I checked, a person is not blotted out of his or her genealogy for being a murderer or for being murdered.
  • Ongom Samuel on Jeremiah 7:19
    Question. Which is the best Bible translation?
  • Bob - in Reply on 2 Timothy 3:1
    I agree with much of your statement, where was the out rage when people are dying from other things just as deadly ? Death is death . Thank God Jesus over came it and lives !
  • Alex on Romans 9
    Alex on Romans 9 v 8 implies th real children of God are spirits , WE ARE JUST JOINT HEIRS WITH THE H.G. OUR NEW INNERMAN, We are the mother simply b/c we birth the child, th H.G. as Jesus said that which is born of the spirit is spirit, Who is my mother he asked ? them that hear th word that good seed and keeps it INITIATING A BIRTH OF CHRIST IN US. THATS Y HE CALLS HIMSELF THE SON OF MAN.When Jeremiah spoke of the new covenant, he saw all men in travail and birth pains,But Jeremiah saw a Child coming that was gonna rule all nations, he saw all men giving birth to this Child and God said this was gonna be his battle ax the child which is the H.G. Jesus said that when he the spirit of truth is come he will reprove the world of sin and judgement & RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    What is the meaning of Psalms 27
  • Geoff - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Ruben, here's a technique that's a bit different than the other really good suggestions offered. If you can imagine your life as a pizza, and each slice represents a different aspect of your life. One slice is work, another is church, another slice is family, and another slice might be recreation....and so on. When a slice or a part of that slice is missing, there's a hole. And, we being our human selves try to fill that hole. Often we do it with quick fixes that aren't lasting and negative. The key is to find a long term positive to fill that missing slice. I honestly don't care if you have same sex attraction, but is that new? Is there a void, maybe intimacy or love or a connectedness that is missing. I feel lust, not love. I fall in "Love" with every pretty girl I see. My opinion all humans want to love and be loved. We seek love from fellow people. WE really need to seek God's love. It's harder sometimes, because it's not the BLAM in your face love that we sometimes get from people. Don't get me wrong, it certainly can be. But, it's different. So, think about is something missing? Is it sexual lust, that is looking to fill a void? I never think bars or clubs are the best places to meet long-term partners. That's why their dark and alcohol is involved. Online dating seems to be about hook ups. Use your other areas of life to help you as you come to terms and learn coping strategies to help you. If, this is what you want. You may slip, but keep coming back to God and coming back to scripture. People in the faith community seem to quickly condemn people who have same sex attraction. That's you and your relationship with God, not them and you. Use the SMART method of goal setting Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-line (does it have a time restriction). Is your goal to be celibate those things? Meet like-minded people in healthy environments. I pray for God to open doors for people go through and close doors He doesn't want us in. God Loves You.
  • 2Chrome Eyes - in Reply on Luke 17:4
    Does this apply to those who are spiteful, and just say they are sorry, but plan to harm you again?

    Repentance is turning from something; so then a repeated sin, said to be repented from, is then become willful sin. And what, then, is the victim to do? Do we continue to allow these kinds of people to abuse us? Or do we remove ourselves from their paths?
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on James 4
    Michael on James 4. Let me offer an opinion. I think that what James 4:4 is getting at, is that our desires should not be set on questionable pursuits that set Christ aside. For example, it is perfectly fine to engage in all legitimate activities in society. God orders society and sets up guidance for governments. Some people have an ambition to become great at something they do. Sports is a good example. Politics is another. And business is also a necessary endeavor in our lives. We live in a secular society. Not everyone feels the same about the God of the Bible and the standards Christians live by. But it is those standards that I think this verse makes reference to.

    As Christians, we are to put Christ and everything He stands for first in our heart. We must not abandon His precepts. When we shove Christ and the Biblical principles we ought to live by aside, we are essentially abandoning Him for things we think are more valuable or desirable. But there is a fine line here that we have to understand. Commitment to certain "secular" endeavors, does not mean you have abandoned Christ. I might be fully committed to my job, but I haven't replaced Christ with it. My desire is not that object, in place of Christ.

    We should also be mindful that we are all sinners and will continue to sin until Christ comes. But we all have different interests and talents. Not everyone is going to have the ambition to preach. Not everyone can. So, my thinking is, we can't divorce ourselves from the reality around us. But whatever it is we are involved in, do it without hypocrycy.

    But to really understand James, we have to study the history and events of the time. We can't just take James 4 at face value. We have to ask, What was going on that prompted James' statement? An Adulterer is one that sneaks around with other people, while trying to maintain a semblance of faithfulness, propriety and legitimacy with others. Is a good modern equivalent called being a Two-faced hypocrite?
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 26
    Chris - "Why does evil exist?",because we are in the midst of a story/war being told.Like a lit candle,we have no reference point for how long it has been burning.Only in our pride do we claim a "free will".The question is,free of what?Our sinful nature is focused on God not measuring up to our understanding of how evil should be dealt with,therein we profess a superiority to God.Faith is trusting what God has told us,we speculate,to feed our proud sinful nature.Knowing better than God,is to besmirch him.God has dealt with the issue of sin,only through the work of Christ on the cross, trust him.May God be merciful to you.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Revelation 4
    Is Yeshua really Lucifer?

    Jesus = Yeshua = Morning Star

    The Complete Jewish Bible by "messianic believer" Dr David Stern writes: "Presenting the Word of God as a unified Jewish book, the Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a translation for Jews and non-Jews alike. It connects readers with the Jewishness of the Messiah. Names and key terms are returned to their original Hebrew and presented in easy-to-understand transliterations.

    The CJB is a translation of the Bible into English by Dr. David H. Stern. It consists of Dr. Stern's revised translation of the Old Testament (Tanakh) plus his original Jewish New Testament (B'rit Hadashah) translation in one volume.

    Jesus = Yeshua = Morning Star

    In Isaiah 14 (REMOVED LUCIFER AND INSERTS MORNING STAR) Their argument is Lucifer is a "Latin" word that does not belong in English. About 20% of English comes from Latin. Does Taco not belong in English since it is Spanish?

    Satanists and Luciferians know who Lucifer is. Read Carefully

    Isaiah 14: (the fall of Lucifer)

    11 Your pride has been brought down to Sh'ol (Hell)

    with the music of your lyres,

    under you a mattress of maggots,

    over you a blanket of worms.'

    (KJV uses Lucifer Stern inserts MORNING STAR who FELL from Heaven)

    12 "How did you come to fall from the heavens,

    MORNING STAR, son of the dawn?

    How did you come to be cut to the ground,

    conqueror of nations?

    13 You thought to yourself, 'I will scale the heavens,

    I will raise my throne above God's stars.

    I will sit on the Mount of Assembly

    far away in the north.

    14 I will rise past the tops of the clouds,

    I will make myself like the Most High.

    who fell from heaven going to the pit of Hell? THE MORNING STAR is Jesus

    Jesus = Yeshua = Morning Star

    Who is the Morning Star? Stern says Jesus is Yeshua

    Revelation 22: 16 "I, (Jesus) Yeshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright MORNING STAR

    Jesus is Yeshua the morning star
  • Mishael To Rob - in Reply on James 4
    Rob you are dancing on the edge of HERESY. Obviously you have not trekked the beginning to the end of the Bible, a whole lap.

    You need a good concordance and a reference Bible with columns down the center of the pages. Then you will be equipped to study GOD's WORD.

    God has a comprehensive end time plan for Gentiles (non-Jews), Jews, and Messianic Jews (believe Jesus is the Messiah they missed). Also the Two Witnesses, 144,000 Jewish evangelists, evangelizing angels.

    We want to assist if we can. That's why we're here: to learn and to be helpful with the Light we possess. Be a blessing to others :D

    I don't want to have to go head to head on "Jews vs Gentiles' every day. I figure that God, the Creator has it all worked out, already. He wrote it and He will perform it.

    There's Jehovah Witnesses, Christian Scientists, 7th Day Adventist's, pre-Trib, Mid-Trib, Post-Trib..... you get my drift?

    I get weary with arguing. If it's confusing, You came to the right place. We love to study.
  • SC - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    This is Truth and spiritual light.

    Jesus Christ is the only living sacrifice acceptable to God The Father, to save mankind from their sins. God

    The all male Trinity is a lie. It is a "false truth", and a doctrine of Satan that have been taught in churches for thousands of years as truth.

    Howerer, All males cannot produce children, spiritually ir physically. If the world is to look up to God in heaven to see the perfect order of a family, and they are lied to that God is just The Father with a male Son, and a male Holy Spirit, and the all male union produces children, with no Mother anywhere to be found, then that's a major reason why woman have been treated like dirt in some countries, and there is so much disorder in the world today.

    Jesus Christ is the son of God The Father, and if Jesus is also our everlasting Father, as the lying scribes say; that means that you and me, The True children of God have the same Father, and that makes Jesus my brother.

    My brother can never be my father.

    This is truth, not heresy!

    The lying pen of the scribes changed some of the scriptures into lies?

    "How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made He it, the lying pen of the scribes is in vain." Jeremiah 8:8

    "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Genesis 1:1

    "In the beginning was The Word{Jesus Christ}, and The Word{Jesus Christ} was with God The Father, and The Word was God." John 1:1

    "26 And God{God The Father and The Word,Jesus Christ, God The Wife, God The Mother} said, now, WE make man in our image, after our likeness, and WE give them dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."

    27 "So God created man in Their own image, in the image of God, they created man, male and female God created them." Genesis 1:26,27
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    Page 1.

    SC, thank you for your comment. You quote Genesis 1:26, 27. What has this Scripture got to do with "The perfect order of the spiritual family"? In the normal reading of that passage, it speaks of the Creator God wanting to create man & woman in His Image. How do we get a 'family relationship' from these verses?

    Galatians 4:27 which is a direct quotation from Isaiah 54:1. What is the prophecy here, which Paul is speaking about? He speaks of the two sons of Abraham, Ishmael (from Hagar the bondwoman) & Isaac (from Sarai (Sarah), the freewoman of Promise). The reference here was against the Judaizers amongst them who wanted to bring Christians back under the Law to be saved (represented by Hagar), whereas Christians were freed from the Law which could only bring death, represented by Sarah & Isaac, the child of Promise.

    So "Rejoice thou barren (Sarah), cry with joy, for the desolate (Sarah) has many more children that she (Hagar) who was the slave-wife (to Abraham)". This prophecy is clearly of the children of Promise, i.e. of those who are saved by grace through Jesus Christ & not by the works of the Law (or even fused with Grace). Here is a clear portion from Paul to encourage the Galatians believers about their new standing before God through His Son. It has nothing to do with "More proof God is Husband and Wife, Father and Mother, MelquisedecLisbet". How do you develop such a connection when the Scripture is clear as to the prophecy & its implications?

  • Bob Hilt on Revelation 4
    Yeshua or Jesus? Heresy or Hebrew roots? Is Yeshua a denial of our English Bible that was new testament that was written in Greek, not Hebrew. No one can show us from the Bible that Jesus was ever called YESHUA.

    Luke Chapter 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

    27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name [was] Mary.

    28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

    29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

    30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

    31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

    (Angel Gabriel gave JESUS his name from the Lord)

    so by what scriptural authority does anyone have to call him YESHUa?

    32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his

    father David:

    33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

    YESHU is a curse that means may his name be blotted out. This is commonly used by those who claim to be Noahides.

    They claim Noah was given a set of laws yet they exist only in the minds of Rabbis. I can not find Noah being given any laws in my King James.
