  • Carleton on Genesis 2:9
    1 Corinthians 9:24-27

    Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run that you may obtain.

    And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things, Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.

    I therefore so run, not as uncertainty, so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

    But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Samaria was the capital of Northern Israel during the split of Judah and Israel after Solomon died. The Samaritan woman at the well was an Israelite also.

    John Chapter 4

    5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

    6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about the sixth hour.

    7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

    8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

    9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

    10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

    11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

    12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? (the woman said Jacob [Israel] was her Father and Jesus never corrected her)

    Art thou greater than OUR FATHER JACOB (who was Israel)

    13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

    She was indeed an Israelite who was of divorced Israel

    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."

    God divorced Israel, not Judah.

    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:"

    Israel AND Judah both

  • Jesse - in Reply on Romans 6
    T39Ann,

    If "Once saved always saved are for those who stay in the Faith and do not sin again," what happens to a saved person that sins?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 27:25
    Dennis,

    Matthew was written by Matthew. Matthew was his Greek name. Matthew means gift of Yahweh. His Jewish name is Levi. And because his name is Levi, that tells us that he is from the tribe of Levi, and he is a priest of all people. Priests come from the tribe of Levi.

    In Acts Chapter 12 Verse 12, we are introduced to Mark. He's in Jerusalem. In fact, Acts 12:12 tells us that his name is John Mark. Many people in the scriptures that are presented in detail, they have two names. One is a Jewish name, and one is a sir name, or a Roman name. John is his Jewish name. It is Yochanan. And Marcus is his Roman name. His name is John Mark.

    Luke wrote both the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts. He is only mentioned three times in the New Testament. Luke is a Greek name, not Jewish. Many believe that he was a Gentile. I also believe that to be true. Luke was the only Gentile to be used to write a book of the Bible. The best evidence of him being a Gentile is in Colossians Chapter 4 Verses 11 through 14.

    John was written by the apostle John. He is a different John than John the Baptist who is introduced to us in John Chapter 1 Verse 6. This is the apostle John. John the Baptist, and the apostle John are two different people. John also wrote 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and the book of Revelation.
  • NO SINGING in USA CHURCHES on Matthew 24:9
    I have to show this. Jesus is coming soon. Our freedoms are being stripped away. Guess we'll have to sing on the front lawn?

    *****

    The radical Left is desperately exploiting the Coronavirus pandemic to expand their extreme agenda. This is what we warned you about.

    California used the pandemic as a pretext to ban singing in church. Telling churches how they can worship God is an unthinkable abuse of power.

    We're working night and day to fight back. Last week, we filed a MAJOR lawsuit on behalf of multiple churches; and just hours ago, we filed a critical motion for a preliminary injunction to quickly block enforcement of the singing ban. (ALCJ) Our fight DOES NOT STOP.

    But we face a significant challenge. We're taking on a formidable state government (California) and its vast resources. And this case could quickly head to the Supreme Court. Sign the Petition.
  • Donna on Leviticus 19:28
    Does it state anywhere in the Bible about transgender?
  • Darlene - in Reply on Revelation 8
    JESUS AND GOD ARE NOT ONE

    Folks need to know some facts. We are living in the end times. Many people have been misled and need to know some facts. Do some research and learn the truth before it's too late. The Father and the Son are not one.

    1) God is the Father. Jesus is the Son.

    How can we be sure? Scripture proves it many times over.

    There is One God, Deuteronomy 4:35, Isaiah 43:10, 44:6, 45:5-6, 18, 22

    There is One Mediator between God

    and men, the man Christ Jesus,

    1 Ti 2:5, Acts 2:22

    Jesus was "MADE" of a Woman, Galatians 4:4 whom God said:

    "and he shall be to me a Son" Hebrews 1:5

    God Was "MANIFEST" (revealed)

    "In The Flesh" (the life of Jesus), 1 Timothy 3:16

    Understand that God was "IN" Chr

    Revelation 8 re: wormwood,

    Timothys lying signs and wonders.

    Plus, the Holy Spirit Is the one who said: it's not global warming.

    I googled wormwood and nasa has a story on "supposed wormwood star". I didn't say it: nasa did. They, not Me.

    I follow many scientists reports and stories.

    Every day. NOT fake newspapers.

    God will confirm his own word ok?
  • Bob Gignac on Genesis 17:6
    Abraham is told (Genesis 17:6) that nations and kings would come from him. Do these nations exist today? If yes, then who are these nations?

    Thank you so much.

    Who actually wrote Matthew, Mark, Luke and John?
  • IwG on Genesis 2
    Luke 8:11

    "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God."

    1 Peter 1:23

    "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."

    Genesis 1:31

    "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day."

    Psalms 119:107

    "I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word."

    Genesis 3:14

    "And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

    Genesis 3:15

    "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

    2 Timothy 4:1

    "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;"

    John 6:63

    "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."

    John 20:29

    "Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

    1Cor 15:45

    And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

    John 10:36 Say you of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, You blaspheme; because I said, I am the Son of God?

    Luke 3:38

    "Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God."
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7:15
    Aborted babies go to heaven. One might wonder: will I be there to meet my child?

    Has anyone found a scripture for that?

  • ROMANS Chapter 11 Mishael on Isaiah 1
    20 Well; because of unbelief ISRAEL were broken off, and thou (WE) standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

    21 For if God spared not the natural (Israel) branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

    22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on THEM, which fell, severity; but toward US, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

    23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in AGAIN.

    25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this MYSTERY lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that BLINDNESS in part HAS HAPPENED to Israel, UNTIL THE FULLNESS of the Gentiles (US) be come in.

    26 And so ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer (JESUS) and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob (ISRAEL).

    27 For this is MY COVENANT unto ISRAEL when I shall take away their sins.

    28 As concerning the gospel, they (Israel) are enemies for (US) your sakes: but as touching the election (US), they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.

    29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

    30 For as ye (US) in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through (ISRAELS) their unbelief:

    31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through (GENTILE) your mercy they also (ISRAEL) may obtain mercy.

    32 For God hath concluded them (Israel) all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all (Israel and Gentiles together).

    33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

    34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

    35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

    36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things:

    Comment: Would be great if we'd just let God bring this Mystery to fruition.

    I believe you meant Neither of them.. it is sort of like the couple that uses birth control but it doesn't work and she gets pregnant. Should they now consider abortion?
  • David A Man After God39s Own Heart - in Reply on Ephesians 5:26
    The life of King David represents what a lot of people go through too. You'll have to search back through the comment room history pages 1-100, to see a study I did on Tamar; David's daughter.

    David was "a man after Gods own heart." No matter what happened, or collapsed like a pile of leaves, David always turned towards God for his help/understanding.

    "The Poet King" is how I've thought of him at times. Read his heart.

    He praised and sang his heart out to God at every twist and turn. It gives me much comfort to read the Psalms Of David in his older life. His kids just wouldn't sit still. His enemies railed on him night and day.

    Some people react to that by getting stoney in the heart; blaming God, their dad, Mom, The President; life in general, future in doubt. Blame is a vortex (like a tornado) that just spins around eating up your happiness and future; until you realize that YOU are the problem. Leave all the mess on the Altar of God and turn back to Him.

    Walk BESIDE Him. Not dragging along behind Him. You know...when life gets so painful and it never lets up; pulsating with lost hope and plunges into darkness. Like driving a toothpick under a nail kind of pain?

    Turn back to the one who has loved you so much, He was nailed to a cross for you!

    Return to your first love; when you met Him the first time. Confess your meandering and be restored.

    Grow up and move into son/daughter status. God isn't going to chase you down or drag you back home by the collar. You turn back to Him!

    If you want to love people, family, fellowman; much better than currently: Grow up in Christ. Get off that blame train.

    Be a person after Gods own Heart. Let Him be your Daddy.

  • Brianna vs 10 on James 3:10
    Excellent reminder. So many christians have become comfortable with using profanity. How can we praise God and curse out the same mouth!?!?!?! True the tongue is a difficult thing to tame, but there is a difference between actively trying to utter pleasing speech and just simply giving in to bad behaviour. With God all things are possible. If we want to overcome a problem, he can help us.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 25
    Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Romans 8

    "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us". That includes "so called" global warming, asteroid impact, volcanos, earthquakes, solar flares or any other "supposed judgement of God".

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1John 4:18

    Mishael, be warned!
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 2:9
    Adam and Even didn't die? So, do you think they're still alive? Of course they died. They were immortal then after eating the fruit they became mortal and Adam died when he was 930 years old. The Bible didn't specify WHEN he would die, but he died just as God said. So, any assumption as to a timeframe is made up and not in the Bible, as the Bible never said it would be in 5 seconds, 5 minutes, hours, days, or even years. Even characters in the Bible themselves have endured huge patience in waiting on God like Abraham and Sarah. But God did exactly as he said. It just isn't necessarily within man's own arbitrary expectations of when they want things to happen.
  • Mathew thomas on Genesis 2:9
    In Genesis 2 God says not to eat from tree of knowledge or they would die. Later, when they do eat the fruit, they do not die. We know God is truth. So why did he say they would die?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I agree with you that the Doctor will give you a good report. You will live and declare the glory of God. May He give you strength and WISDOM to be a leader lady in the house. Amen Hallelujah!

    You have covenant with your husband, so you two must pull this load together and make joint decisions.

    Your daughter must take over half of the duties of the house. Her husband should do half of the outside work and cars.

    Dinners need to start with one small Psalm from the Bible. It's not offensive. Kids need to respect your belief.

    I heard that grocery stores really need personal shoppers and curbside or delivery for shut-in people. Maybe your brother In law wouldn't mind that, until jobs start coming back? Doing something helps when you're waiting:)

    Your bedroom needs to be off limits so you can go in there and read one chapter of your Bible and say a prayer.

    Just have a family meeting with ice cream and announce work division so there will be peace in the home. You need to take care of yourself so you can manage this.

    Allow Jesus to carry some of the spiritual burden for you: cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you. Give Him the abortion pill burden for sure.

    You can tell her I said that God told me He's Pro-Choice. CHOOSE life so that you and your children may Live. (I told him that's not really what you say nowadays...but He didn't say skip it). Book of Deuteronomy.

    Jesus loves you and is at the right Hand of God, making intercession for all of us. Thank Him for helping you.

    FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

    Google it. Read it. Understand it.

    I too was in a very similar dark season of wilderness. Life-long: Depression. Anxiety. Confusion. Resentment. Finger pointing. I spoke against God, as you do because of MY misunderstanding and MY afflictions. Because of MY walk.

    I thought because I simply believed in God he was supposed to change my life. He was supposed to be there for me, when I needed him. I thought he didnt care for me and didn't care if I died. I pleaded to die. Considered suicide for over a decade. I yelled, I cried, I turned away from Him before ever knowing him. If I believed in God how could he want this for me? How could one person handle SO MUCH pain? Why me? Why?

    Guess what;

    God DID want me to die..yeah I said it. The ME who I saw. The ME who I wanted to be. The ME who thought I knew who God was. The ME who thought I was the creator of my life story. The ME who knew it all. The ME who indeed, needed to die.

    God didn't tear ME down. God allowed me TO be tore down. Torn apart. Broken. Physically, mentally and spiritually. God gave me free will to live how I wanted. He gave me the free will..to sin. For the wages of sin are what? DEATH. Not having Complete Faith in God is..sin.

    Where am I going with this;

    Now, at 39 years old God recently called me. Finally I (ME) was ready. The man I was DID DIE. Praise God!! The man I was DID SUFFER UNTIL HIS DEMISE. God didn't kill me..he brought me to HIM. He is showing me WHO I AM. God has begun to saturate my heart(spirit) through the power of His Holy Spirit. I no longer live for ME. My life is in HIS hands. He knows what I need.

    Do you know a bone is stronger after being broken? Do you know that HE knows what is best for us? Are you ready to truly Believe in Him and to live through Faith?

    Do you REALLY believe in Jesus Christ or do you need some magic wand to live the life YOU want for YOURSELF? Believing truly in our Savior is to live in Faith. To live in Faith is to live in his will
  • Lamar on Romans 7
    The key to Romans 7 is in the first verse ."Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?" for I speak to them that know the law . For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.verse 5 when we were in the FLESH . chapter 8 talks about when U are in the Spirit . There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Walking in FLESH is walking in Works LAW . Walking in SPIRIT is walking in FAITH . if U are dead to the flesh and alive to the Spirit in CHRIST JESUS then U can do the things U want to do and not do the things U don't want to do under LAW U are BOUND under SPIRIT U are Free....
  • Jodi on Ephesians 5:26
    I'm feeling stuck. I am going through a lot of trials, I know God is testing me to the fullest, I am trying to remain strong and give my troubles to him, but everything creeps back in. I'm searching for recommendations of readings that may help me. I appreciate the suggestions, thank you in advance and GOD BLESS.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Of question: The vision of Constantine of bringing together Church and State by the Cross, was it of God or man? Did the True Church stay separate? Can we know?

    For Teresa and family, many prayers are with you this very day.
  • 1 Corinthians 6 - in Reply on 1 John 1
    I was referring to this passage.

    1 Corinthians 6. The first part of the chapter refers to Christians going to the law against other Christians.

    Here Paul is preaching to a mixed group I believe: Jews, Gentiles, believers

    All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

    13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

    14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

    15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

    16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

    17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

    18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doth is outside the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

    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?

    20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

    Why do you feel you need to approve or disapprove everything someone says? Did Jesus? He taught patiently, used parables so everyone could identify with what he was saying. Quoted the law and then presented what Grace is.

    Mishael
