  • Donna Kinsey on Genesis 1
    Where in the Bible is the one world system talked about?
  • Matt - in Reply on James 2
    Are not demons fallen angels? Wouldn'st they be well acquainted with Heaven and Its Holiness?
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 6
    Somehow in the times that are happening around us, there will continue to be a way to love and encourage each other in our tribulations. When persecutions were taking place 450+ years ago, the brethren did not try to free the one being buried alive or torn asunder or burnt at the stake or have boiling oil poured upon their heads, instead they sang to them, they cheered them on in their patience and those that remained took upon them to take care of the affairs of the one's whose lives were being given up because of the faith.

    Are we ready to suffer these present times and not lose our faith? Can we suffer in love for our neighbor, for the brethren? Are we being scattered?
  • What Are Signs of The Times for NOW - in Reply on Revelation 6
    Matthew 16:3 Jesus speaking:

    And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can You Not Discern the signs of the times?

    Comment: Maybe we think we are too modern to understand farm talk? We can quote the stock market, report the sports page, grumble over politics, corona virus statistics today, wondering if our school kids will be infected?

    Without a healthy appetite for the Bible and it's Prophesy; we are CLUELESS about Signs of the Times we live in; NOW.

    Our compassion for humanity is consumed upon our own concerns. The anger builds as we wonder why God doesn't ride in on a pure white horse and fix everything that is broken?

    Does anyone remember what hourglasses look like? The sand barely moves in the beginning. In the 9th hour, still much sand nearer the bottom. At 11hrs30minutes the sand picks up speed! You watch the last grains fall through. Then someone reaches and turns it back over. Same process.

    Someday a knock on your door and the Grim Reaper stands there: time is UP

    Time is up. The signs in Matthew 24 appear in all kinds of newspapers: hurricanes, typhoons, floods, tornados, erupting volcanoes; a 5.6 earthquake in the New Madrid earthquake fault; merciless forest fires. And now, temperatures that surely will ruin this seasons crops and meat animals that have no food= means High Prices at the checkout.

    This is America and "no one starved here!"

    Really? Does anyone see the little house of cards we live in? Payday is coming, and his name is The Antichrist (means, against Christ)

    If you think your kid may be taken over by something (drugs, alcohol, pot, thefts, growling satanic music, guns, sexual confusion or immorality, porn, violent video games they play for days).

    What are they gonna do if Antichrist says your wireless will be restored after you take the Mark of the Beast?

    Signs of the times...

    Hello Mr Sebren

    The Lord is also the God of the dead: Revelation 20, Philippians 2: 10 & 11, and Romans 14:9 > "For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living". "Might be" is now is! Now that's cleared, I offer sympathy if someone you cared about recently passed away

    The following is my personal experience and my thoughts about what happened. Furthermore, I admit that I didn't want to answer your question because I knew it would draw out the haters. But I couldn't forget your question and now know that it's right to answer from a unique experience

    I hadn't seen a dear aunty of mine for a long time due to being abroad. She was an older sister of my mother and was actually more of a good mother to me. She was suffering for a long time, but no closely related relatives told me when there was time because they're narcissistic. I found out very late about it when I phoned relatives overseas, but she was asleep. It was just before she passed away. So it was the most distressing grief I've ever been overwhelmed by

    So, I cried to the Father God and told him how I missed her so much and never got the chance to say goodbye. Then when I was out walking on a sunny day, some time within 15 days of her passing, I suddenly sensed the presence of an angel who told me in the spirit that someone wants to speak to me! I'm glad I was given that bit of preparation, or else I would've closed up out of fear. A minute later, her spirit &soul appeared, asking me questions that she would've asked, but never got the chance before. I answered her questions while they walked with me. This lasted about 10 mins. Then 2 days later, they came back for a final brief visit, in my home, so she could see my lifestyle & for me to explain my circumstances to her

    So it's possible but rare& only if God allows it for a brief time window (up to 15 days, maybe 30, of the death of a saved soul, escorted by an angel). I didn't ask for that, but u may

    What is so significant about Numbers 13:21?

    John 4:35

    Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

    Perhaps there are many Christians that have other worldly plans and other worldly agendas for the four months to come, but why?
  • Part Two THE HARVEST - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 13:11
    Luke 25

    25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity

    26 MENS' HEARTS failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

    ********

    I do not want to frighten anyone; but Satan wants to. He desires people to reject Jesus in word and deed NOW, rather than wait Till the end of the Tribulation period.

    He has released billions of demons to spark riots, violence, theft, murder, suicide, depression, Fears: of disease, the future, no jobs, no income, death, starvation, homelessness. Demons to strike fear in people's minds. Satan wants us to bail and kill ourselves. He is all of those things. He is a Hunter of Souls. He KNOWS he's going to Hell and he wants to steal souls from Jesus.

    Go on YouTube, search: spiritual warfare, and get some tools on how to beat up on demons: bind them, cast them into dry places or outer darkness. They are invisible, so don't let that throw you off. Ephesians 6

    Part of the Harvest is praying every day for that harvest to survive until scripture gets to them in time to save their souls. All lukewarm Christians will surely suffer loss of rewards in Heaven, if they intend to just sit on their salvation and do nothing for those that are perishing!

    Description of a goat: I would like to go witnessing and pray for people's salvation and healing.....But But But But But. Does that sound like a goat?

    Matthew 25:32 (Read the whole chapter)

    And before him (Jesus) shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    Everyone should do the work of an evangelist: going, giving, praying hard for, doing the work of an evangelist:

    2 Timothy 4:5

    This website has a Prayer Request room that has people come in there every day. GO YE in there and pray for them! Don't just sit on your gifts. Are they saved?
  • Part one Working the Harvest - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 13:11
    John 16

    31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?

    32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

    33 These things I have spoken unto you, that IN ME ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    I was sent in here almost a year ago. God knows my body is older now, but my Faith is rock solid towards God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit who helps us to Persist in bringing salvation to those who are perishing. I want you to hold onto what you have, and trust in what you already know. Consider...that you were chosen too. As much as Peter, John and Paul. You have a testimony of Gods Love that no one else has. It has power that the Holy Spirit will use to convince sinners that they need that Power To Live also. Mine: I was revealing a horoscope to a backslid Methodist; when the Lord sorta rolled back her face; and I was then looking into His Face. She left and I was in a "state", I cannot define really. Arrested on a "Damascus Road". He is absolutely ALIVE

    After 36 years, here I am. I believe He has picked you too. He lets us see the miseries of human life to spur us forward to show them their need for a Risen Savior. He's not out of reach. He's as close as your next breath. If you are stuffed full of scripture and stories (parables), He will use those as you are willing to give them to Jesus. He's numbered our days and recorded them in a book. We're like an army of Noah's that are loading the Ark, which is Jesus Christ.

    In addition to building the Ark, Noah preached salvation to the unbelievers. Get in the Ark. Be saved. Not everyone will pray with you for salvation. Don't internalize.

    2 Timothy 3:13 evil will wax WORSE and WORSE. Read all of 2 Timothy chapter 3 & 4:1-4.



    PART 2 on the way!
  • Sierra on Genesis 31
    I am seeing different verses about divorce. My former husband had multiple partners while we were married and continued to be unfaithful and he was hostile after marriage torwads me and the children. So I left the home but he divorced me first. I need to know because he divorced me and my situation I know Jesus has forgiven me but I do have someone I love dearly that is Christian like me and he was divorced with his wife as well. Does this make us adulters still in the lord's eyes in the day of judgment?

  • Pat on Genesis 1
    I have heard there was a book in the Bible called "Angels" Don't know what bible Or exactly what religion it was. I was raised on the KJV. Can you help me find that book perhaps even the religion and/bible please?

    Thanks so much.
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I know its popular to say that at funerals and to comfort those mourning, but I don't believe it's true. They might be in a 'better place' however, just not heaven, because all must wait for judgment. Also, it says the dead will rise to meet Jesus in the air. I'm sure it will be spiritual bodies, not physical ones that have rotted. It wouldn't make sense otherwise if people went straight to heaven to then go back to earth to an old body just to raise up and meet Jesus in the clouds, just for the ceremony of it. So, both scripture and logic refute that idea. Most people believe this because of Jesus telling the other guy on the cross that he would be in paradise. First, Jesus can pick whomever he wants to have special treatment- it doesn't automatically mean 100% of others will follow suit and ignore the other scripture. Secondly, paradise may not necessarily mean heaven. Paradise could be an intermediary place of rest or waiting. Just some thoughts. No one knows 100% until it happens. We just have scripture and logic.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 6
    I'm interested. Who?
  • Grace regarding 1 Peter 12 - in Reply on Colossians 2
    Hello Gar,

    I'm interested to know about which old documents you are referring. What reference or proof do you have that the word "elect" was not in the original Greek? I'm hoping this is true, but it could be too difficult for anyone to show this because of lost scrolls, fake documents accepted as authentic by some, and just too many centuries have passed

    Anyway, I've checked that the ancient Greek word eklektos was translated correctly as the adjective "elect" in the 1611 KJV. Others translated it as "chosen". Note that eklektos is an adjective, a descriptor, a word that is an attribute or characteristic. It is not a noun or a verb or even the past tense of the verbs to choose, to select & to elect as Calvinists have misinterpreted and misunderstood. Example sentence starting with an adj. : (Sam is) Amusing according to Kim's letters

    Eklektos must be translated as a characteristic or quality as it was intended to be descriptive. So, in English the adjectival meaning of 'Elect' is: worthy to be chosen, favourite, preferred, and or "selected for an office, but not yet inducted". Likewise, when "chosen" is used instead of 'elect' as an adjective, chosen means: preferred, to be selective from a number (of available). 'Preferred' would've been the better English translation to stop the arguments

    What's more, "foreknowledge" is "prognosis" in ancient Greek. So that sentence means 'We are preferred by God, according to His ability to see into the future, to be sanctified for obedience'. It's not the Calvinist 'The Chosen Ones according to His will'

    3 different bible versions have all used the same document for 1st Pete1:2

    21st Century KJV

  • NEW 2020 on Revelation 6
    Did anyone mentioned the fulfillment of the symbolic horsemen prophecies?

    Briefly, Revelation 6:2 is a symbolic leader of Israel who had gotten a crown (the Palestine's Lands) and is set on conquering the Palestine people

    Revelation 6:4 is a symbolic Palestine leader who is going to get a huge support from the East to make War in Israel

    Revelation 6:5 is a symbolic American leader who is controlling all the world economy and is also protecting the interest of the jews and christens in Israel

    Revelation 6:8 is a symbolic christen leader in Israel who will be persecuted along with many christens.

    Who was the first with this interpretation?
  • MURRAY HILL on Matthew 12:42

    i get that we should seek the lord while he may be found, but what does it mean to actually seek his face?
  • An-noor on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I like the Bible because it tell us about God
  • Mary m white on 1 Timothy 2:4
    The pastor this morning said your spirit and soul go immediately to heaven. What I do not get is.... if spirits go immediately to hell or heaven, then why is there a judgement day? You would already be where you are. The white thrown judgement is after the 1000 year reign, so would God pull em out of hell to send em back to hell after judgement? and bring us from heaven to go back to heaven after the judgement? Please help me to understand what happens after death.

  • Jose Sanchez on John 12:30
    I have a great question , when the Lord Jesus said: "Father glorify thy name" , did Jesus give an order to the Father? , but this can't be, because Jesus said , "my father is greater than I"

    And the verse "this voice came not because of me , but for your sakes". What does it mean?

    I hope to get an answer.

    Have a nice day.

  • As I watch the heartache, deceit, betrayal, and selfishness in crumbling marriages all around, couldn't this verse be referring to the end of sorrows for some and the potential for likely pain, albeit in growth, for the other? I'm finding little desire to go to any wedding celebrations bc it means stretching and growth and potentially heartache and separation.
  • Connie Green on 1 Chronicles 16
    The Commentary says that no offerings or sacrifices was held because there was no alter. If that was so, then why do the scripture say so and the people were given a loaf of bread, meat and wine after the sacrifice?
