  • Wayne - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    [Evil comes because of our sin or from God's discipline just as He gave to Israel when they left Him.] you are contradicting yourself here now , I think you are confused or lying . in job how is god not at fault? if I give you permission to kill someone am I free from blame ?
  • Wayne - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    regardless of what you deem as evil, would you say that when men do evil things because God told them to therefore its no longer evil. examples [ Exodus Chapter 21, verse 20:

    If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.

    Not only does God condone slavery, but he is also completely comfortable with the concept of beating your slaves, as long as you don't kill them.Leviticus Chapter 25, verse 44:

    Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.

    Here God states where you may purchase your slaves, and clearly specifies that slaves are property to be bought, sold and handed down.1st Peter 2:18 slave submit yourself to your masters with all respect not only the good and gentle ones but also the cruel.shouldn't the Bible say, "Slavery is wrong -- you may have no slaves"? Shouldn't one of the Commandments say, "thou shalt not enslave"? the creator of the universe states in writing that slavery is perfectly acceptable. Beating your slaves is fine. Enslaving children is fine. ["Mein Kampf" contains phrases Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord. Nazi soldiers wore belt buckles inscribed with "Gott mit uns" (God is with us).

    Jesus was born in Bethlehem by The Spirit of God .

    That's all there is to it .

    What does born mean ? Beginning

    Because Jesus was born of God like no one before him , He Knows God like no other man , so yes he could say he came from God because he was born of God . He that is of God was before creation because God is . But Jesus Identity as Jesus the Christ began in Bethlehem. To separate Jesus from who is is wrong , you cannot have a spiritualized Jesus and a Jesus in the flesh . It's one or the other .

    I except the biblical Jesus as the true Jesus , clearly seen in Luke 1 and other places .

    The whole deity doctrine is unbiblical . I don't want that Jesus Jesus of Nazareth the Son of God approved by God is good enough for me . Praise the lord !
  • Rob - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 15
    If I depended on the wisdom or understanding of man , I'd have nothing at all .

    I do not like being deceived and only the Father in heaven by whom we gain access to through the Son , are educated by the Holy Spirit .

    Yes Jesus said will He find faith when he comes ? The world will be so much in darkness before he comes . And already is . It will get worse , but the elect will endure .
  • Rob on Isaiah 45:5
    Isaiah 45 v 5

    God states that there is No God beside me .

    This was way before Jesus ascension up into heaven , correct ?

    So now Jesus is sitting at the Fathers right hand beside God .

    Would God still say this now ?

    Yes Jesus was not there before , and no man hath seen God , but now the man Jesus is at Gods right hand .
  • Rob - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Jesus declared God because he was born of God and knows God as no other man .

    As you mentioned the word said no man has seen God , that's excellent !

    Yes Jesus declaration is when he was here on earth .

    Why was Jesus more than the greatest of the prophets , John the Baptist ? And he is !

    The answer because Jesus was the only Son God ever by Birth !

    All others in the past including John the Baptist where not Born as Jesus was in Bethlehem, so simple yet true .

    God verified that Jesus is his Son can any one dispute this and when it occurred?

    The answer is Bethlehem is where and when , Jesus is the Christ born of God sent to save the world by Gods love .

    So much more can be said .

    Don't spiritualize Jesus beyond the scriptures.
  • Quentin D Williams on Psalms 10
    what to do when God's word returns back to you void? I have been praying and practing patience for 10 years for god to bless me to return to the work force. Yes i have been doing my part to make manifest my prayer petition.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Exodus 15
    I was an astrologer until 1985. I asked God to wipe my brain's hard drive and toss the pins, after a supernatural salvation and deliverance from ALL occult things. Satan tried to get rid of me many times.

    One day someone (who didn't know me) asked me what it meant to have a Leo sun sign. I thought really hard for a definition and my mind was blank. It's not in my head anymore and I give the Lord all of my praise and Worship for doing a miracle.

    Later I asked the Lord to remove names and faces of people who would trouble my sleep. I do not remember things of my past that cause pain.

    Pray and ask yourself if you really need to remember those things?
  • How to Find a Mate Gods Way on Revelation 6:13
    Genesis 24: Romance of Isaac and Rachel. How to find a mate Gods way.

    Genesis 24:3 Abraham enlisted his eldest Servant (a type LIKENED to Gabriel, when he approached the Virgin Mary).

    Abraham made the servant promise to bring Isaac a wife from his kindred. For us, that would mean: BRING A CHRISTIAN, not an unbeliever! Don't fall in love OUT of your faith and expect God to make it work for you. Marriage vows are sacred. Don't plan for a divorce.

    The servant worships God 3 times, for giving him confirmations he has found the right mate for Isaac. (12,26,52) She was a Christian, a Virgin, love at first sight. Isaac loved her all the days of his life.

    She was given gifts: not her doing all the giving. Propriety was observed.

    Male or female, these same principals can be applied in a Christian dating situation. You'll be respected and right in the eyes of God.

    Worldliness will turn the whole thing sideways. Don't go into it expecting to lead your mate to Jesus AFTER marriage. The door is wide open for Satan to enter in and make all those plans, implode.

    How can two walk together unless they be in agreement? Dating a Carnal Christian is just as hazardous as dating an unbeliever.

    Pray and ask God for confirmations (Not Signs). Satan is in charge of 'lying signs and wonders'.

    So read Genesis 24. Remember how King David's life was complicated by taking another mans wife, getting her pregnant and the having her husband killed in battle.

    If we include God in our search, there's no way it's going to fail. I love the way the servant prays details, from large to smallest. Happy camel watering.

  • CJ on Matthew 18
    It says in the bible Matthew 18.18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    Can someone please give me an example of what things we can bind on earth, so that they shall be bound in heaven, and what things we can loose on earth, so they shall be loosed in heaven ?

    Many Thanks

  • Linda Evans on Exodus 15
    Hello. I have some blocked memories that the Lord is probably protecting me from but I want to face them. Is there any scripture on this that I can pray on?

    Thank you

    Linda
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1
    John 1:18: "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." Would this be a declaration of Jesus' pre-incarnate Being in Heaven & then sent forth to the Earth as God's only begotten Son in the flesh?

    But to find the words: 'Jesus born in Bethlehem was first with God in Heaven' isn't given except the Scriptures I've given earlier. So are you saying that the Jesus on Earth was never the Word of God in Heaven simply because there's no word-for-word depiction of this Truth? Or maybe, I've misunderstood you altogether.
  • The Baptism of the Holy SpiritWhat to Expect - in Reply on Acts 19:6
    When you prayed the prayer of faith, to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior: you were sealed with the Holy Spirit THEN.

    1 Corinthians 3:16

    Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

    1 Corinthians 6:19

    What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

    Ephesians 4:30

    And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

    Ephesians 1:13

    (Jesus) In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

    1 Corinthians 12:3

    Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

    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.Acts 1:5 - For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

    Read all of 1 Corinthians 12, to understand the gift of speaking in tongues. If it's a gift you desire, then ask the Holy Spirit for that gift. Always covet discerning of spirits. A very useful gift.

    1 Corinthians 14: 1, 2, 4

    For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh Not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

    GOOGLE the gifts so you'll know what each one of them is for.

    The Holy Spirit is your Teacher. Always ask Him to help you understand what you are reading. You now have the Mind of Christ. He will instruct you through the Holy Spirits ministry to believers. Be still & quiet till he replies. You're going to fall deeply in love with the Spirit of Jesus.

  • CJ on Isaiah 40
    It says in the bible..

    Exodus 20.8-11 remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work, but the seventh day is the sabbath of the lord thy god, in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.

    for in six days the lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day, wherefore the lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    what day is the true sabbath day because some people say it's sunday and others say that it's friday sunset to an after saturday sunset ?

    and how can we be sure because the only clue that i can find in the bible is in Genesis 1.5 and god called the light day, and the darkness he called night. and the evening and the morning were the first day.

    this suggest that sunset to sunset is a day, but this doesn't tell me which day is the sabbath is on, so how can we be sure which day is right ?

  • Advise to Single Christian MinistersMishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Being Alone and Isolated

    Satans best tool against anybody, saved or unsaved, is ISOLATION. You are vulnerable because of it.

    The Humility of Jesus is shown in how he cared for people who came to Him for help. It was spiritual and practical.

    There are many, many ministries who could use an extra pair of hands, and a friendly smile.

    You aren't going to have a husband ring the doorbell. You need to make some calls; call your church for advise. Be VISABLE. Try to break out of solitude, doing one of these following ministries:

    Feeding ministries (packing or distributing

    Benevolence (Clothing,toys,shoes)

    Collecting coats for Kids

    Helping with blue or brown Santa

    Writing out Holiday greeting cards for shut-in's or elderly

    Your local civic organizations (paint scenery for Christmas plays, find costumes, etc

    Help Habitat for Humanity

    A Christian man may be out in the midst of all that: being his kind and caring self. As long as you're isolated you will not be in range of meeting. (Mission accomplished by Satans crummy helpers.) Conversation in public only.

    If your church doesn't do these kind of things; find a church with a big singles ministry. No rule says you can't visit other singles ministries and attend your regular church.

    John 10:10

    "The thief (satan) cometh not, but for to steal (your joy and peace), and to kill (your faith that God loves you), and to destroy (you! Piece by piece). I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (Jesus)."

    You have to fight back like a warrior, Ephesians 6.

    Amos 3:3

    Can two walk together, except they be agreed? {Pray to receive a life partner, or spouse.}. This doesn't work unless you feed your faith. Have an inner attitude of praise and worship towards God. Participate in life outside of your house.

    Refuse violently when demons of doubt come to shred your faith. Ephesians 6

    You need to print this out or copy. Tape it to the back of your closet door.
  • Donna Williams - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Thank you Claire for your kind words and prayers. I believe that the Holy Spirit is dealing with you about the things that you have mentioned concerning the congregation that you are a part of.

    I encourage you to take heed and do not ignore what's in your spirit. There is definitely something wrong. The enemy always tries to make us feel that we are the ones who are in error. Please continue to pray and read the Word of God for yourself, and whatever you do not understand allow the Holy Spirit to teach you. I know without a shadow of doubt, by what you have shared that you are in the wrong place as it pertains to where you fellowship. I am praying that the Lord will bring you out and lead you to the right place, where you will be fed the Word of God. Depend on the Holy Spirit and not man.
  • Madelyn - in Reply on Psalms 109:8
    Judge not lest you shall be judged. Are you not familiar with the personal history of the disciples? God Bless America as He has from the beginning! Are you the perfect person? You have already cast your stone!! No condemnation for abortion ? No condemnation for man with man and woman with woman. No condemnation for destruction of a nation that God Himself guided from birth to be One Nation Under one God !! Get on your knees not in rebellion to His word and purpose but yield in supplication to God All mighty !! His will be done!! His purpose under heaven !!!

    Does a person have to speak in tongues in order to know that they have record the Holy Spirit?
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    As Chris stated where did you read this? From what Bible? It has been proven that even in the Dead Sea Scrolls from the Museum in Israel that it is "wolf". The KJV is the best version of the Holy Bible we have. Yes, as through the years many things in the "newer" versions of the Bible have been changed or removed. Today we have the ability to check through the whole Bible, Hebrew or Greek, to see the original words used. Even though it was not even a KJV Bible that lead me to Jesus Christ. It was a NAS Bible. Still good enough to bring me to the Lord. Now I have a KJV which is the best.

    Looking a little into this. Do you know the song those "lyrics" were in that came out in 1937? Then became the most popular by Elvis and so on into society.

    In the same verse, Isaiah 11:6, it does say "the young lion and the fatling together". The next verse "the lion shall eat straw like the ox". A wolf has always been known to be the predator of sheep.

    Please don't take this as an argument. I only want to help. Calling others "blinded" because of this is false.

    God Bless you. Have a wonderful day my brothers and sisters!
  • JOHN K SUSTAITA on John 8:31
    If you continue in my word..

    Sadly the greatest sermon given by our Messiah Yeshua Jesus of Nazareth goes ignored as commands

    Each command honors the one command given to Adam in the Garden of Eden (clarified Genesis 3;22)

    Yet like Yeshuas commands, Adams sin goes ignored&unrepented

    (This is not by accident)

    If you love me you will obey me "then" my father will love you because he loves me and will make his home in you!

    Let those who hear, hear the word of God..

    Don't be deceived whom you obey is your Lord&God!

    Why call me Lord and not do as I command?

  • What does entimity mean. Don't know if I spelled it right
  • Rob - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I'd have to disagree , Satan has no mastery over a mature Believer alone or with many .

    If God before us who can be against us ?

    Yes a babe in Christ can be deceived by persuading people for a time , but the truth of the Bible will set them free if they read it alone or else where .

    The over comer has no fear of the devil . But acknowledges his tactics and avoids them , and knows how to pray effectively.

    Jesus taught the disciples how to pray . To keep them out of temptations .

    More is better but alone works too if you know how to walk with God .

  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi Claire, totally understand u. But church is a building not a bodyofchrist(PEOPLE) True believers that worship in truth & spirit, Church(MAN DOCTRINE'S) is a numbers game. always has been always will. Untill jah will be done. O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels. Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what partAnd what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
  • Claire - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, Everyone is being really helpful & encouraging. I am enjoying the "online" fellowship & the comfort & help that is being provided by my brothers & sisters in Christ.

    Most of the people In the two main churches that I have been to seem to be happy just plodding along and taking everything that the pastors say as gospel. I think they think that because they have been baptised, believe that Jesus died for our sins, & they turn up for church on Sunday that this is enough to them into Heaven. Others might experience that 'comfortable' fit within the Church. But I didn't really feel that at any of the churches that I have been to. I have always felt like I didn't fit in anywhere even from a very young age, and yes I am hungry for Truth from the Word & want to practise what the Bible says & I don't just want to plod on in vain & on the day of judgement be stuck with a

    I don't believe a perfect church exists, but I do believe we can still maintain our beliefs, yet also enjoy worshipping together, be it online or elsewhere. I haven't been to church this morning because I feel like I learn more & have a better understanding by reading the bible myself & listening to independent views online, but after reading your reply about it being important for me to fellowship with other believers, I have decided to go to the evening service tonight.

    I don't think it's good for me to spend too much time with non believers because it causes me anxiety to be around them too long. I think it's best I just pray for them because my relationship with them is rocky already and has been since I was a teenager.

    I came across a site last night called 'The Way Prepared Scriptures Study Review' one of the topics was 'Our Greatest Hindrance: The Doctrines and Commandments of Men' I found it helpful, and was wondering if anyone on here is familiar with the site ?

    God bless you & your family.

    Kind Regards

    Claire
  • Spike4187 - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:12
    The letter Paul wrote to Timothy concerning women teaching and preaching. I read the comments by people and the comments some made which included "I believe". For sure, we need to beware what "we believe" but we need to pursue the truth of the text and look for clues in other texts. For instance, does anyone not think, Jesus could of settled this thing so easy by choosing a woman to be one off the twelve! But he didn't. Does anyone wonder why? When Paul is laying some ground rules for the church and the qualifications. He writes several times the man should have one wife........he never says the person should have one spouse or one husband, etc. You get the picture. I Timothy Chapter 6:3. Once again Paul has a chance to clarify. He writes again If any MAN teach otherwise......I read some of these comments about the woman Jesus spoke to being an evangelist because after her meeting with Jesus at the well she went into town and told all. Well lets examine that. You just met an individual that knew things about you he could not possibly have known. No doubt she was amazed and went into town telling everyone about this strange and wise individual. So that makes her an evangelist?????? Really????? does that mean I am a scientist if a scientist tells me a truth about cellular structure and I go into town and tell all I know what he taught me about cells??? I mean some of these comments are reaching and splitting hairs. Our generation from kindergarten up has been socially conditioned (brainwashed) into believing a certain way. When the Bible tells us something to the contrary, we want to start splitting hairs, reading something that isn't there, and outright refusing to believe what it is saying. Sometimes we may not like what we read, but it does not change the truth of the text, nor should we try to. Beware brothers and sisters.
