  • Simona Padurariu on Matthew 24
    I wonder about verse 36 og Matthew 24. Are the words "nor the Son" missing in the King James or added to many of the other versions?... Does the Son know the day and hour or not?.. Thank you in advance.

    Greetings Rod, Jesus had picked 12 apostles and Judas hung himself. There were then only 11 apostles.

    John 6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

    I fail to find in scripture where the Lord told the apostles to choose a replacement for Judas as recorded here. They did this act on their own accord with out being told to do this.

    Acts Chapter 1:24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all [men], shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,

    25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.

    26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

    I am sure both of these men were faithful in the eyes of the 11, but still the Lord did not command them to do this thing. Saul / Paul however was a different story.

    Acts 22:7 And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

    Saul who became Paul was chosen of the Lord himself.

    Acts 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.

    I have had people deny Paul as an apostle and in doing so they must deny the book of acts and the book of 2 Peter which confirms Paul as a brother in Christ. This is usually those who claim to be into "Hebrew roots"

    I find it interesting Paul was a learned scholar and was sent to the unlearned uncircumcised "Gentiles"

    and Peter an unlearned fisherman was sent to the learned Jews, who knew scriptures.

    1 Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; These things humble me greatly.

    All glory to the Lord.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5:22
    Greetings Dwight - I see your point. If indeed Calvin did teach that some men could not be saved. I do not really know what Calvin taught. I know he was involved with the Geneva Bible.

    What does the Bible say about certain people and their salvation? Let us turn to the scriptures.

    Malachi Chapter 1: 1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi 2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? [Was] not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,

    3 And I HATED ESAU, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

    Esau rejected the things of God, this is a long study, and as such God rejected him. Can you imagine God said he hated Esau?

    Hebrews Chapter 12:14 Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

    15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble [you], and thereby many be defiled;

    16 Lest there [be] any fornicator, or profane person, as ESAU, who for one morsel of meat SOLD HIS BIRTHRIGHT.

    17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, HE WAS REJECTED: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. ESAU WAS REJECTED OF THE LORD.

    Obadiah 1:18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it. (there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau)

    Esau married two Hittite women who were of the Canaanite tribes which the Lord had forbidden Israel to do.

    Seems harsh, but there it is. Esau rejected the things and blessings of the Lord, looks like the Lord had "returned" the favor. The Herod family were of Esau per Jewish historian Josephus, you know the king who killed all the children in Bethlehem.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 15
    John, the Bible of course, speaks on many, many subjects & one of the important ones is of a person who has been saved through the Holy Spirit's convicting, & then his repentance & then knowing God's forgiveness based on faith in Jesus Christ's death on the Cross for our sins. If this person has truly come God's Way, we say that he is Born Again (i.e. not a second birth back into the world, but re-born in his spirit, where God's Spirit takes up residence in that person's life - John 3:3-7). We still look the same, go to work, etc., but by His Spirit within, we are now accepted by God as His very Own children, we look at life through 'different eyes', the graces of Jesus begin to fill us & become evident to others, we want to tell others of this great experience & new life, etc. etc.

    However, after this great work of God in us, there are some well-meaning Christians who will teach that even though you may be a child of God now, you can some time in the future, choose to reject God, His Son & His Spirit & lose your salvation. They will even show you scriptural proof to support this. And true, if Scripture is taken in isolation or misinterpreted, then a Christian can lose his salvation. But I also take note that the Work of God in sending His Son to die for us was not a poorly devised plan. Jesus' death & resurrection was complete & final and God accepted this sacrifice for our sins by raising Him from the dead & giving Him a position of Power & Authority in Heaven. The Scripture also tells us that true Christians have been sealed by God (look these up: 2 Cor 1:22; Ephesians 1:13; 4:30). When God seals, He will NOT un-seal - we are His forever & He will "never leave us nor forsake us" (Hebrews 13:5). Then can a Christian choose to forsake God? If a Christian is truly born again, he cannot & will not reject God & His Son. It's not possible. Yes, a Christian can still commit sin, but he is soon convicted by the Spirit within him & repents & is restored.

  • Dwight - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5:22
    Calvinism teaches that a great number of human beings created with no chance of being saved-this is not the Christianity of the KJV Bible. And by the way, was Jonathan Edwards and Charles Spurgeon calvinist? and was it truly calvinist that should be given credit for THE GREAT AWAKENING? The internet makes them out to be calvinist-but Rome has men who post slander to even good men who have passed away and cannot defend themselves.
  • Rod - in Reply on Galatians 3
    let me ask you this question, why did Jesus save Saul when he already had 12 Apostles already preaching his gospel?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Philemon 1
    If I'm not mistaken, I think they lost weight. Please take no offense at that, as I mean none. I'm just not sure what you are asking?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Luke 15
    I do not know how my post ended up reading something other than what I typed. What I remember posting was that I don't believe that Jesus was being deceitful. If you cut out the entire Song of Solomon part, add in what I just said here, and begin at 1 Peter 2:22 to the end, that is what I remember typing. I'm not sure how that ended up there?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Ezekiel 28
    Jayden,

    I think it is important to read the bible in order to grow spiritually in Christ. Growth comes through continuous reading and studying of the scripture. Also, without reading the bible, how are we to know if what we are being taught is true? We have to search the scriptures in order to test all things to see if what is presented to us is the truth. It's just like exercising, if we don't exercise, eventually our muscles will weaken. We grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through a continuous study of His word. There can be no growth without reading and studying. In fact, the bible tells us that when we leave off from studying God's word, we become dull of hearing. In other words, there will be no growth, and the things we learned and once knew, we will begin to forget. That is why I feel it's important to stay in the word.
  • Jonathan - in Reply on Ezekiel 28
    The Bible is our daily bread. It help us grow spiritually as a Christian. We need to feed on it daily and master it and help us to know God more deeply
  • Me on Psalms 91
    This is spiritual wickedness in high places. They dug one ditch when they should have dug two. They only reaped what they sowed. God will take vengeance on our enemies who don't believe any way. Such a filthy trifling act. God said it will go away soon and I believe Him
  • Kenneth Redden - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11
    Who dreamt that up about, "Earth's time schedule?" Where did that come from, I see no cause for it. However, the KJVInterpret seems to be pretty clear about this, the two days in 2Peter 3:8 must be the fifth day and sixth day.

    Thank You Chris,

    Kenneth
  • John on Isaiah 15
    Can you lose salvation? This man who claims to be a prophet of God Said God reveal you can lose salvation. Can God also speak to you also and tell you things?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Ephesians 6:14
    Lugene,

    This starts at Verse 11 where it says put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Every one of these pieces of armor from Verse 11 to Verse 17 is Christ.

    It says put on the whole armor of God. And this is Aorist Tense which means do it one time. That's very important!

    Put on the whole armor of God. The purpose: that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. The word wiles in the Greek text is the word Methodea which means methods or schemes.



    And notice that all of this is to cause us to stand. Not to fight, but to stand. Why? Because our position is in Christ at the right hand of the throne of God in the spirit realm! We don't need to fight Satan because he's already been defeated.

    We are told in Verse 13 to take the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Wherefore take unto you, (Aorist Tense), the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand, (and that's the word resist), in the evil day, and having done all, that is, after everything has been worked out, to stand. In other words, once the dust settles, you're still standing. Stand, not fight!

    So when we put on Christ, we put on the whole armor of God. It's a one-time deal, and the armor never comes off.

    Just wanted to comment on the Isaiah 43:11 discussion. Has anyone ever seen the movie One Flew Over The Cukoo's Nest?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5:22
    Dwight - by calling someone a Calvinist with a damnable doctrine I am guessing you are referring to the doctrine of election. I have read very little of Calvin and do not follow him as I follow Jesus. However I ask you this question.

    Why is it when people refer to the great majority of unbelieving Christ denying Jews they are called the chosen people or the elect?

    When speaking about Christians believing they are the elect of God or the chosen people all of a sudden it becomes a heresy? Why is that?

    How can unbelieving Jews be the chosen people, the elect, be perfectly acceptable doctrine?

    Did the apostles pick Jesus or did Jesus pick the apostles?

    John 15:16, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you..."

    1 Peter 2:9, "But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:"

    2 Peter 1:10, "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:" Yes I know the Bible also says whosoever will.

    1 Thessalonians 1:4, "Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God."

  • Dawn Silva on Ecclesiastes 3:3
    Re: Ecclesiastes 3:3

    Why would there be a time time to kill if the bible teaches love one another above all things. What does this verse actually mean or what did it truly mean when it was written? Why would this be in the bible?

    One of the ten commandments states thou shalt not murder.

    While reading the bible and trying to figure out Ecc. 3:3, I find it disturbing.

    Thank you for addressing this email.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Mark 10:30
    Patricia, did you mean John 10:30-31?

    In John 10:30, Jesus says, "I and my Father are one."

    Verse 31 does not use the word Father because the Jews took up stones to stone Jesus for saying I and my Father are one.

    The Jews understood the phrase "I and my Father are one" as Jesus claiming to be equal to God Himself. That's why they took up stones.

    But did you notice that Jesus didn't deny it? He never said "Wait a minute guys, before you stone me, I think you might have misunderstood me." The Jews knew exactly what Jesus meant!
  • Kenneth Redden - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11
    Have you read, [John 19:30 KJV] 30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

    I believe that, "sin," in the KJVB; is any incompliancy within this Universe.

    One thing, the interpretation works, without need for a topical read and also a chronological read to satisfy all their stipulations. What is your interpretation, where did you get it?

    Thank You
  • Lugene on Ephesians 6:14
    What does he mean, "Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth"?
  • Adam - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11
    Hi Kenneth, my understanding is that all sin is evil and all evil is sin. 1 John 5:17. If you don't believe this, what is your criteria for differentiating between them and do you have examples? Also evil and sin exist today. Today in nearly every major city in the world someone will be murdered according to death statistics. That is evil and sin. So, I also don't understand someone saying there's no sin today since there is proof of it and the Bible says there is. Also why specifically do you believe science proves sin is gone? Thank you for sharing your perspective.
  • Patricia Stover on Mark 10:30
    In Mark chapter 10 verse 31 mentions Father but why does it not mention Father in verse 30?
  • D W L - in Reply on Luke 15
    Do you think Jesus was deceitful, pretending to pray to his FATHER? Matthew 26:42

    He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

    There are plenty scriptures to argue but most of us prefer not debate.
  • Carl - in Reply on Romans 8:34
    Hi Sadie,

    I'm proud of you for sharing your struggle. I am reminded of a verse that really impressed me recently. Exodus 33:14 "And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest." Isn't that such a comforting promise? I pray you can experience that! God bless.
