    I don't know what you are saying. Most people in here read King James Bible. Me included. The Holy Spirit has never said: to read those books.

    Why can't we discuss KJV Bible ?
  • Let Jesus Have Your Life and Take His Hand - in Reply on 1 Maccabees 4
    In my studies, that is God's explanation for the Godhead, in the Bible.

    The church I went to as a child, was Trinity Baptist: strict Southern Baptist. Somehow all I learned was I was probably going to hell unless I was baptized. I never learned who Jesus or the Holy Spirit was. I wandered off by age 15. It would of made a difference if I was taught the Godhead: My Father, My Savior, My Teacher & Comforter.

    Her sermons are on youtube now, since she passed: Iverna THOMPKINS, once taught us that God brings us to Himself the easiest way He can. I came in backwards, upside down, through a rocky cactus desert. I was closer to death than I was to life.

    God prepared the vessel, and on Yom Kippur, Jesus folded back reality and looked at me eyeball to eyeball. 3 seconds

    I know the little demons fled then. I opened the Bible to tell me why doing astrological charts On Yom Kippur was wrong? I found I was sentenced to death by scripture. I laid my head on the Bible: "I deserve to die."

    I saw things that are a horror to repeat. But I became sure that a invisible hand was extended to me From the kitchen ceiling. I grabbed it. Then...I was delivered of all the demons that thought they owned me.

    I woke the next day. I was conscious of the change. Everything looked the same: there was the Bible on the table. The my eyes rested on the bookcase full of astrological books, occult books. I dragged a 33 gal. metal trash can up and filled It to the top. The only books left was the Bible and family photos. I took a picture of it. By then I knew "someone" was helping me throw out everything occult or cursed. I was happy! Another day, a drinking buddy came by and I told her I was saved! She helped me drag that can to the grass outside. A storm was blowing in and I thought no one would see the smoke so I burned the books! Acts 19:19. That began a new life with Jesus that only gets sweeter and stronger with each day. In a few months it will be 36 years. He is ALIVE !!

  • A Bible believer - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Remember, there is a a lot cults and heresy going around the church. So you cant simplify it and say "become a Christian". And do you not know 1 Corinthians 6:2 and 6:4-5? Here is it"2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?" and "4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

    5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?"

    Though it depends on how you judge one another. In this case we should judge every doctrine even if it is your church or mine! Hope this gives you understanding.

  • Billy Davis on 2 Corinthians 4:4
    The Man that walked the hill of Calvary and died to pay your sin debt FULL has a message for you.

    99.99% truth mixed with .001% lie is not the TRUTH that will MAKE you Free. According to the Hebrew Scriptures not the English Bible. Many are called few are chosen to understand what you are about to read. Here is how subtle and crafty your adversary really is. Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any beast of the field which Father YAHweh had made. And he said to the woman; Has YAHweh indeed said: You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

    God is only a misleading TITLE not a name! Proverbs 30:4 Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound up the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name? And what is the Name of His Son? Tell me, if you know!

    "How can we know that Satan is the God of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4)?" Answer: The phrase "God of this world" (or "god of this age") indicates that Satan is the major influence on the ideals, opinions, goals, hopes and views of the majority of people. His influence also encompasses the world's philosophies, education, and commerce. The thoughts, ideas, speculations and ALL the religions of the world are under his control and have sprung from his lies and deceptions.

    Satan is also called the "prince of the power of the air" in Ephesians 2:2. He is the "ruler of this world" in YAHchanan (John) 12:31. These titles and many more signify Satan's capabilities. To say, for example, that Satan is the "prince of the power of the air" is to signify that in some way he rules over the world and the people in it. This is not to say that he rules the world completely; Father YAHweh is still sovereign. But it does mean that Father YAHweh, in His infinite wisdom, has allowed Satan to operate in this world within the boundaries Father YAHweh has set for him. When the Scriptures says Satan has power over the world, we

    What does this verse mean?

  • Betty Henson on Hebrews 12
    1. What is the very first thing GOD requires of all man to do? Where can I find it in scripture?

    My thoughts is, Exodus 20:3, but a preacher said it is "TO LOVE" all.

    2. Why are we not noticing or focusing on all these Satanic Statues that are being raised right in front of us with little to no protest? I believe Arkansas has an 85' Statue of Satan with 2 little kids happily smiling as they look up to him, sitting right next to the 10 Commandments. These Statues are raised up throughout the world as they are in many States in this country. GOD told us all in the bible he is a jealous GOD, and will tolerate no other GOD before him. I think Satan has always used racism to keep everybody in the world off focused. (Off course racism is extremely important) however, I know GOD is watching us make him 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.. in order off importance, you get the picture. The world needs to STOP, take a look around, because if what people see is all they see, they don't really see all there is to see. Man has always been nasty and wicked towards each other, and GOD deals with these issues. On the other hand we are foolishly ignoring his first Commandment. Thou shall have no other GOD before me, for I am a jealous GOD. We are going to pay an enormous price for what we are allowing to occur. In fact we are presently paying a heavy price. (COVID 19) We must FAST and PRAY nationwide, worldwide with true Godly leaders, to stop what we are overlooking. Please shed thoughts on this as I am upset that this gets no NEWS ATTENTION, when in fact it is the most important and urgent thing happening in the world, YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW.
  • PROOF Triune and Trinity are FALSE DOCTRINE on 1 Maccabees 4
    Also, in these following scriptures , we clearly see the Godhead (Acts 17:27-30) speaking to each other.

    Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7

    1 John 5:7.

    John 10:30, I and My Father are one.

    Malachi 3:16-17. God listens when we talk together abut Him.

    If you persist with trying to confuse people with Triune and Trinity, then you are opposing yourself.

    Everyone here has the responsibility to search what we say. Is it scripture??

    Quit being lazy and look this stuff up.

    1 Corinthians 14

    36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

    37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

    They conveniently look over where Paul says everything he wrote are commandments from God and that God told Paul what to write."

    Paul made it clear that its a commandment from God Himself. Since we know from the Bible that God doesn't change we know that women can't hold the positions of pastors nor does God call them to preach. If he did he would contradict Himself and make himself to be a liar.

  • Stephende on Hebrews 8
    Why is it that what God, the God of Israel, has ministered to in the desert should wax old. As is the fact of today that the people lose faith and fall away, the same was true with Israel. Only Caleb and Joshua would reach the promised land! Not even Moses, who mistrusted the word of El Shaddai at Merabah. God said" Command the Water to flow from the rock! Moses used his staff, tapping it twice. Did Jesus doubt in the Garden prior to his execution? With tears and trembling he did because he was human. Yes human, with all it's correlating doubts and fears. I'm not a Jesus follower but his appearing and reappearing was a wonder. However, his doctrine wasn't written, but recorded from memory many years later. I'm basically bitter with Christianity for all its hycoprisy and politcal dalliences in these most ruinous times. Old weeping entrepreneurs are the messangers. Franklin Graham is so deep into Trump that some consider the lying psychopath of a president a prophet! Get it right, ye Christians. The truth is available only to those who thirst after it!
  • Greg - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    Carleton,

    I agree that we as believers can freely rest and be justified in God's commandments and enter into the Rest that is given through the grace of Jesus Christ.

    You say "Jesus came to fulfill the commandments"?

    I disagree.

    Jesus came to fulfill the "law" (Luke 24:44).

    One "jot"or one tittle" of the LAW will not pass until ALL is fulfilled (Matthew 5:18)

    These are powerful words from Jesus that should not be dismissed or overlooked. ALL has not been fulfilled yet, therefore the LAW still stands.

    Love is the fulfilling of the LAW (Romans 13:10)

    That means that the LAW is still in effect.

    Only ONE person that ever walked the earth did not NEED the LAW.

    The rest of us need repentance every day, because we break the law every day.

    The death and resurrection of Jesus fulfilled blood and other certain ORDINANCES of the Law, but did not abolish the LAW itself.

    How can we "rest" in His commandments when we break them?

    Our rest comes through faith in our repentance and His promise of forgiveness and a new standing in Him from that.
  • Millard Lewis Powers - in Reply on Job 42:6
    We are all God's possessions, and I, for one, am glad to be such. He is not morally deficient and could never be so, unlike slave owners. God takes care of his possessions just like I take care of my tractor, only better than I ever could.

    Even the pure in heart can do better, at times. If you go back to Job 32 and read to the end of Job 37, Elihu explains why Job needs to repent. He says that Job justified himself rather than God.

    Now, Elihu was not one of Job's three friends who had come to visit him, but he was there and had listened patiently to the discussion between them and Job. Notice that when God rebukes Job and his three friends, he DOESN'T rebuke Elihu. Elihu is the ONLY ONE who escapes God's rebuke. So read those six chapters where he speaks for enlightenment about why Job should have repented.
  • Millard Lewis Powers - in Reply on 2 Samuel 3:2
    No. He wasn't. In fact, he said in 2 Samuel 11:8, "and I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given thee such and such things."

    In the very next verse, he makes it very clear that he was angry because David had "despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight" by having Uriah killed and taking his wife. This was the word of the LORD spoken by Nathan the prophet. But he probably wasn't too happy about David's committing adultery with her before that, either.

    Neither the LORD (God, the Father) nor Jesus EVER condemned any man at any time for having more than one wife, although I'm sure there were plenty around that did, even in the time of Jesus. There are still polygamous marriages in some countries even today.

    What Jesus said was that if a man put one wife away (divorced her) to marry another, except if she had committed fornication, he was guilty of adultery and causing her and any future husband she might have to commit adultery. You have to read all accounts of his discourse on divorce to see that he's talking about putting her away in order to marry another. These are found in Matthew 5:31&32, Matthew 19:9, Mark 10:11&12, and Luke 16:18. So we see that, if a man had five wives, he was okay, but he could not put one away so that he could marry another. Perhaps this meant so he could afford to marry another. I don't know. But he could put her away for fornication. Why didn't he say adultery? Because adultery carried an automatic death sentence in those days. No divorce was necessary.

    Too, Mark 10:12 shows that a woman could also put away her husband, but was under the same rules as the man pertaining to divorce.
  • Millard Lewis Powers - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    It means that each day, we have enough to handle without taking on the problems of tomorrow or some other day. Therefore, we should live in the day we are in, because we cannot live in tomorrow until it gets here.
  • Lewis Talley - in Reply on Proverbs 11:26
    Your nephew is right that there's nothing in the Bible about marrying outside your race. However, the OT does count. He's wrong about that. How many times does Jesus say, "It is written . . ." or "It has been said . . ."? Ok. Just where was it written? In the Old Testament, of course! If Jesus thinks it counts, trust me, it counts.

    Now, on the racial question, Miriam objected to the race of Moses' wife, and God made her (Miriam) white as snow -- with leprosy! The children of Israel were instructed not to take wives from or give wives to the heathen people around them, but there was no racial specification given whereby they were to determine who was heathen and who was not. Nor was there a "heathen patent" issued to any particular race. You were free to be a heathen, regardless of your race, as long as you weren't one of the children of Israel.

    The children of Israel were also commanded by Moses not to make intertribal marriages within the tribes of Israel, so that their inheritances would not move from tribe to tribe. There was nothing racist about that.

    I'm almost done with my eighth study of the Bible, and, to my knowledge, there's nothing about staying within your RACE in it.
  • The Five Fold Ministry and Jesus39s Resurrection Morning - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Calm down. Jesus was speaking to his disciple who had been a fisherman by occupation.

    Jesus invited him to be shown how to "fish" for peoples souls.

    The word Apostle means, one who has seen the person of Jesus Christ; the Son of Man.

    The office of an Apostle, works as touching the 5-fold Ministry of: Apostle, prophet, teacher, pastor, evangelist. Also, someone once said to me that 'pastor' is positioned on the ring finger because it involves full time shepherding of Jesus's sheep and baby lambs.

    If you open your hand: the thumb is the apostle. Using the thumb it can reach out and touch each of the other 4 fingers.

    The Apostle can minister in any of the other offices.

    My take: Jesus would like us to be versatile by nature. He had to do it this way because someone is always going to bark, "That's Not My Job!."

    We are all called to follow Jesus and DO the work of an evangelist.

    Personally: I don't have cable and I watch very little television. My computer is 1 year old and hasn't been used yet. I have an unproven theory that if we watch too much tv, our rears rebel and move around to the front. :D

    I'm just saying we have time to read the Bible. It goes much faster if you'll buy a Strongs concordance; a commentary; maybe a dictionary. How's your Bible appetite?

    I love Jesus! First time I saw that he evaded Satan all over the place and Satan could only focus on murdering the Son of God! Satan forgot all about Genesis 3:14-15 prophesy. When that spear cut into Jesus's side, He had already died. Satan didn't get to cheer :( Then when Jesus came walking out of the tomb: He bruised Satans head (I hope he knocked him out) and Jesus took the Keys and went to hell, preached salvation, opened the cells and led everybody in there out, in the streets and into Paradise. He then met up with both Marys because they were over at the Empty Tomb.

    This is the Mighty Son of God that we worship! He is worthy to be praised & adored.

  • Mishael on who identified Jesus as the Son of God - in Reply on John 1:49
    We can't really know who said it first because of the time issue between the 2 Chapters:

    Matthew 16:16. Peter

    John 1:49. Nathaniel

    I think you made a good catch. The only problem is that Nathanel was not one of the 12 Disciples.

    Comments anyone else?
  • Leuisil Misilei Mataia on Matthew 24:40
    I am so thankful that Jesus Himself said that there would be a rapture of His Church as in John Chapter 14:1-3 V3b I will come back and take you to myself, so that you will be where I am. Where Jesus will get His pride from and take it to where? It is from here on earth to heaven. God placed Noah and his family in the boat leaving the bads behind. The angels took Lot and his family out of Sodom and left the bad people behind. Israel was safe and Secure in Goshen while all Egyptians faced the all plagues. So here we come to Matthew 24:40-42, Two men working in the field, one will be taken away, the other will be left behind. Two women will be at a mill grinding meal, one will be taken away another will be left behind. Those people were working on the earth, At the time of blessed hope mentioned by apostle Paul, or rapture, all the believers will be caught up forcibly as fast as the twinkling of the eye to meet their Lord and Savior in the air . Then Jesus Christ took His Pride, the Church to be with Him until the time He will come with them to establish Thousand Years Kingdom.
  • Wanda Wheat - in Reply on Proverbs 11:26
    My nephew is trying to say that it is no where in the Bible about dating outside your race. Our family is not racist nor are we against the African Americans. We are trying to get him to understand that it is in the Bible and he argues that the Old Testament doesn't count. Can you please help me with this?
