  • Lyle Lee on Revelation 5:8
    Here we see one sitting upon the throne with a book, the lamb slain from the foundation of the world comes to him to take the book out of his right hand, my problem with this event is the oneness movement, for how can Jesus be the Father sitting upon a throne, have Jesus as the lamb coming to him to take a book out of his hand while Jesus is sitting upon the throne? No wonder I believe in the godhead, what is commonly known as the trinity.
  • Bob Grove on 2 Peter 3
    2 Peter v 17

    Beware lest you be led away with the error of the wicked , fall from your steadfastness.

    What is the error of the wicked ?

    Any thing that teaches contrary to sound doctrine that The Apostles teach , found in the NT .

    Peter is warning because he knows they will come after his departure .

    And did they come , no unity at all in professing Christianity.

    The solution get back to the Bible and stick with it . There are so many false doctrines you can pick your poison . May the Lord bless you as you prayerfully search the scriptures.

    Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:3

    6:1 The unjust - The heathens. A Christian could expect no justice from these. The saints - Who might easily decide these smaller differences in a private and friendly manner.

    6:2 Know ye not - This expression occurs six times in this single chapter, and that with a peculiar force; for the Corinthians knew and gloried in it, but they did not practise. That the saints - After having been judged themselves. Shall judge the world - Shall be assessors with Christ in the judgment wherein he shall condemn all the wicked, as well angels as men, Matthew 19:28 and Revelation 20:4

    6:4
    Them who are of no esteem in the church - That is, heathens, who, as such, could be in no esteem with the Christians.

    6:5 Is there not one among you, who are such admirers of wisdom, that is wise enough to decide such causes?

    1Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? Evidently the BAD angels, who shall be judged when the world is judged.
  • Rebekah Craft - in Reply on Ephesians 2:14
    One definition of the word remission is forgiveness, with another being "the cancellation of a debt". So we find the words forgiveness and remission being very related to each other, with that idea that JESUS forgives sin, and brings it into remission, making it as if it never happened.

    We are indeed "washed clean" of offenses that we've committed before coming into relationship with the Lord, and of mistakes that we make afterwards when we ask Him to forgive and help us with those troubles.

    Example Scripture: "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins"

    Matthew 26:28.
  • Dee on Job 7
    Sometimes life becomes very challenging, one thing after another so you ask yourself do I get a break? I can't continue like this, but reading Job gives hope when your at the end of the line. Hope, strength ,and clear thoughts, once we realize we're not walking alone. God is always beside us to guide us though our challenging

    times and rocky roads.(Job is our testimony)
  • 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?"
  • Lolo on 1 Corinthians 6
    9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    Waiting for your second coming LORD. IM not staying behind!
  • Charles Pineda Jr Former family values Democratic candidate for Governor of Cali on Psalms 94:16
    The Lord of the heavenly forces needs no human assistance, but he does use human beings to spread the Good News of Christ Jesus.

    With the international bankers financing all aspects of the anti-Christ movement was Solomon full of the Holy Spirit of God and asking believers to stand up for true believers today? One Christian commentator stated that we need, today, a John Knox or Martin Luther type of individual's to stand up for the Christian family and our national moral values that our nation had until about 1963, when the Bible was taken out of our schools.

    I'm still a democrat because there are ten of millions of Christian democrats. The anti-Christ people who control the party absolutely abhors us, especially candidates like me who don't change their Christian values for political position, money, favors, etc.

    At times I've though of running for president as a write in candidate and do everything possible to get rid of the international bankers political party system; as that system is unconstitutional, and they are not mentioned in our Constitution. Our USA was founded without political parties, and did very well.

    The only way, speaking economically, to take control of a country's treasury is through the political party system invented by the European bankers around 14th century. With the big money they make they easily have motivated candidates accept their donations thus becoming their minions. Today, the have trillions of dollars to continue to get into office anyone they want, and who will insure that their interest is dealt with effectively. They pass any laws they want and insured, today, that their banks, military industrial factories can give any amount of money to any candidate.

    So, the Presidents, the Congress, and the Supreme Court justices are their minions. They put in their president, he appoints Wall Street types as Secretary of the Treasury, and appoints Judges to the Supreme Court who will pass laws such as the same sex marriage. IHS.

  • Trusting God With Our Money - in Reply on John 16
    Luke 18

    18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

    19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

    20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

    21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

    22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: AND COME AND FOLLOW ME.

    Comment by Mishael:

    There's more, so read that chapter to get the full story.

    You're not under any kind of judgment for having financial plans. You already know it's not giving you a sense of eternal security.

    Only Jesus can give you what you seek. As you seek Him in Prayer, someday you will know His financial suggestions for you.

    Having money is harder than not having it.

    I find Jesus very willing to advise me who to give money to. It's like The Holy Spirit says this one or that one. I asked to win the lottery so I could give it to all the World feeding ministries....and I got silence on that. I still give to feeding ministries on a budget.

    When I was a street evangelist, I bought McDonald's food coupons for the alcoholics in the street, or I took them to I-Hop. I made fresh sandwiches. I worked in a church feeding program, giving out boxes of food. People were always nice to me; told me lots of heartbreaking stories. Everybody in the streets know who Jesus is!

    Don't feel bad about your past. Let Jesus be Lord over your money. Marriages get torpedo'd because of money. Your Partner will be The Lord Jesus. Listen to Him. Follow Him. It takes a lot of relationship to agree on everything: including money.

    Read the New Testament and Gospels to really study what Jesus taught about money. What is His heart?
  • WHAT GOD LIKES ABOUT USMishael - in Reply on James 1:2
    Please study these comments yourself in Genesis.

    There were 2 Trees in the Garden of Eden.

    Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

    Their spiritual connection to God was severed. Jesus eventually came to restore that connection to His born again Believers.

    The Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) discussed together how to protect the Tree of Life. If Adam and Eve ate of that one, they would live forever in a sinful state.

    The Garden was protected and Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden.

    Later, you will see that God had moved the Tree of Life to Heaven.

    As far as I know, no archaeologists have ever dug down and found the remains of the Garden of Eden. Most humans have a conscience about good and evil, even if some choose to be contrary.

    Revelation 22

    1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the NATIONS.

    3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

    Comment: some scholars believe that we'll need the leaves for illnesses and physical deformities, but I don't think so. We'll obtain our new transformed bodies in the clouds with Jesus during the Rapture.

    My guess would be for the diversity of people going to heaven; like races, cultures.

    When you view the diversity of nature and animals, birds, etc. It makes sense to me that the Lord would desire the diversity of humans. Who wants to look at one color, one race, one kind of music, one kind of cuisine, etc. Who wants to eat Cheerios every day for a thousand years? Do you see my thoughts?

    Heaven, my friends, is going to be FUN!!

    Wrap your head around that ok.

    Study what God likes.
  • The Medical Explanation Of Jesus39s Death - in Reply on John 3:16
    John 19:31-34 So the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath the Jews asked Pilate that the legs might be broken and that they might be taken away. The soldiers came and broke the legs of the 1st and 3rd prisoners. Jesus was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, there came out blood and water." Why did blood and water come out of Jesus' side??

    Crucifixion typically resulted in death through one of two ways: The first was HYPOVOLEMIC shock. The prolonged rapid heartbeat resulting from hypovolemic shock can cause fluid to gather in the area around the heart. This is called pericardial effusion.

    The second way death occurred during crucifixion was due to asphyxiation. The person is unable to breathe in enough oxygen to survive. Crucifixion victims had to pull their weight up with their hands or wrists that were nailed; along with pushing up with the feet or ankles that had another nail through them. Over time, the ability to push up to breathe would end and oxygen flow would be restricted. *This asphyxiation can also result in the buildup of fluid around the heart.

    In either case, the account of John is quite accurate. The Romans saw that the other two crucifixion victims were still alive and broke their legs so they would no longer be able to push themselves up to breathe, resulting in death within minutes. Jesus, they saw He had become unconscious and likely was already dead. To confirm, a spear was shoved into His side, likely under His ribs, that ruptured the PERICARDIAL sack, resulting in a flow of both blood and water.

    This manner of death was a brutal end for Jesus, there was also prophetic significance to this event. John states in John 19:36-37, "For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled: 'Not one of his bones will be broken. And again another Scripture says, They will look on him whom they have pierced.

    Prophesies: Exodus 12:46. Zechariah 12:10.

  • PART ONE THE HOLY SPIRITS GIFTS - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    Acts Chapter 10

    44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on ALL of them which heard the word.

    45 And they of the circumcision (the JEWS), which BELIEVED were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles ALSO was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    46 For they heard them speak with TONGUES and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

    47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

    Truth is that THE HOLY SPIRIT has gifts; that we can ask for and receive. Get knowledge in 1 Corinthians chapters 12-14.

    Generally speaking, people who are not sure about it, and do not have all the scripture laid down within; are sometimes afraid, the whole experience is daunting.

    Tongues can be different: some speak another language, some people groan loudly: some speak as the Holy Spirit gives you an utterance. If it's prophetic, there will be 2-3 other prophets in the house who will know if that Word is from God, or out of a persons flesh. If there are no prophetically gifted people in the service; there will be no interpretation of the tongue. All must be done IN ORDER.

    Just sitting in your prayer closet, praying in tongues makes no sense to your conscious mind, BUT does edify your own spirit. All the fatigue of all kinds drains away and then you feel energized. Angels harken to the Word of God, spoken.

    I pray in tongues in my car, because people drive suicidal or homicidal. I drive with the angels. :D

    It's not going to make sense to your brain (soul). It is your spirit that is being built up. Read all scripture on this. When you are positive this comes through the Holy Spirit that in-dwells within yourself spirit; you will someday ask the Holy Spirit for His gift, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It will happen when you are praying or quietly reading the Corinthian chapters I mentioned. Just be open to the Holy Spirit. :)
  • PART TWOA RHEMA WORD FROM GOD - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    Rhema is the word of God spoken to your spirit, quickened to your soul. The word that is hot and relevant to your current situation and condition. Rhema is personal and effective, it comes from the depth of God's heart, His spirit into your heart & your spirit. It imparts vigor, energy, strength, power, passion and fervency to you.

    All the Old Testament prophets received Rhema from God which made a way for them in the spiritual wilderness. Elijah received a Rhema word from God which not only fed him in famine but saved the life of the widow and her son; gave them a continual supply of food when all around them was in draught.

    His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones Jeremiah 20:9

    Rhema cries out to you, loud and clear.

    When you are reading your Bible, a scripture jumps out of the page to speak to you, or a verse highlighted by the Holy Spirit to enlighten and direct your path. Whatever God tells you to do, He will equip you to do it; wherever God tells you to go, He will prepare for you the way to get there.

    The fellowship with God in His Word is vital. The fire, the fervency, the calling comes when you fellowship with God in His Word. For you are face to face with Jesus!

    Revelation of John 19:13: and his name is called The Word of God.

    The Word imparts vision to you. You become a fired up, proactive, purposeful, God-sent person. Gone are the days of laziness, inactivity and boredom. Your life is no longer "a waste of time"! You become focused, organized and purposeful.

    A lot of people out there find life so boring that they have to resort to drugs, alcohol, loud music etc to give them a high; but then when the illusion is gone, they are left worse than before. A person who suffers from depression swings between highs and lows. why? It's because they are not living a "real life", the God given life in Christ Jesus!

    There is life in the Word, it is the life of God, the God kind of life.

    Will

    I see that when you first approach someone you will "attack" using bold statements through personal words. When you are asked questions about your response you will grab any "relevant" scripture you can find and post it. You won't use your own words to give an answer in response. This means one thing.. your heart is hardened and biased. You seem to come in here to confront and cause abrasion. I believe you know this.

    Since you won't respond heres but one scripture I will give you, sir;

    Galatians 3:26. What does that scripture mean to you? Not my words, it is directly from THE word.

    I pray for you to find peace within your heart and to overcome whatever spirit is causing abrasion and separation in your thoughts.

    God Bless
  • Wenmar - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Flossy Ann, Life is hard....take it one day (or even one hour) at a time. You are correct in wanting believers to pray for you. Over 20 years ago I woke up one day with a terrible hangover and worse...a feeling that I may have hurt someone (verbally) with my drunken behavior. When I asked this person he said "What are you talking about? You were hilarious last night.", but there was a feeling of shame that I couldn't stand.

    While I wasn't an alcoholic in the usual sense, I had been out carousing for 20 straight nights. And this was a pattern for about 15 years. And often I had feelings of worthlessness so I did abuse alcohol and this constant carousing to "feel good"..but it was a fakeout, a counterfeit!

    That morning, before I lifted my aching head from the pillow, I called out to God, whom I did not know personally, and gave him control of my life and just said " I don't want to feel like this anymore!!" No, it wasn't instantaneous but before I knew it I had lost my desire for this lifestyle and began getting to know my savior. I praise God that he delivered me from that life. And more importantly...to know my savior personally and to know that I will live in His kingdom with Him eternally!!! Unspeakable joy! Stay in the Word and keep praying!!!

    Does that mean (God) had a choice to choose from "other " women as helper or wife?
  • Growing Closer to Your Father - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    You read His Word, with new born again eyes. To see His love unfolded throughout our history with Him.

    To run the limits of wickedness until in agony of soul we bow our knee and ask Him to come in and help us finally. And He does.

    I had to become very old to hear a Fathers heart poured out in the Book of Lamentations. His sorrow over a nation and a people who would stubbornly reject Him time and time again. The pure pressure of Gods heart would almost make my heart implode, because me and people He loved would just wander away.

    How could we be such rockheads? And yet every time we turn and mourn the sins we did that drove us away from Him, is what drives us back into fellowship with Him.

    He is so Holy, He cannot look upon sin; or hasten to us. He had to give His very own Son, to mediate for us. A Son that was willing to show us what Father is like.

    How, please tell me how can we just step over that, and ask unfeeling questions like: is inter-racial marriage ok?

    And then you want someone else to search the Bible for you .... because you don't search the scriptures yourself.

    God used to spend the early evenings, walking with and talking with Adam. He still does that With people who have their hearing tuned in, by way of The Holy Spirit.

    You can have that relationship that you truly want, but are afraid to lean into and make it happen. Turn the sounds of the world OFF, sit in the floor by your bed, still your mind, listen. Pray what is on your mind. Listen.

    Sing something your spirit loves. I sing an old song named: and He walks with me and He talks with me, and tells me that I'm His own.... Other days I may cry. Why? Because God the Father is what the heart longs to know. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father; and you can sit and ask Him to pray for people who desperately need Him now. Like: remember my brother in your prayers, for he needs a miracle in his relationships with those that love him and want him to be saved.
  • David - in Reply on John 3:16
    "At Calvary, the water poured from his side and intermingled with his blood and washed our sins away by faith in our repentance looking from up from the wilderness to his healing by repentance. The full result is His Spirit entered into our earthly tabernacle and filled us with peace and understanding."

    ??????? eh? Sir, the pasting together of partial Scriptures and concepts in an attempt to create your own Gospel is what Paul warned of in the opening of Galatians... twice. If you want an UNDENIABLE EXPERIENCE with God, and receive the REAL Holy Spirit the way they did in Acts, then OBEY THE GOSPEL that is confirmed by the Apostles in the Book of Acts. Only then will you really see what your relationship with the Lord can be!

    If you want Biblical results, do Biblical things in Biblical ways. :) Hope this helps!

    These scriptures in John 3:3 are a great comfort to those who are seeking peace with God and man.

    Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    John 3:4

    Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

    John 3:5

    Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    At Calvary, the water poured from his side and intermingled with his blood and washed our sins away by faith in our repentance looking from up from the wilderness to his healing by repentance. The full result is His Spirit entered into our earthly tabernacle and filled us with peace and understanding.

    This Peace which is harmless, undefiled, separated from willing sin is God in man and will carry the new man by the guidance of his Holy Spirit to the finish of this earthly race.

  • Why is wisdom referred as a woman - in Reply on Proverbs 3:15
    1:20-21; 2:2-4; 3:14-18; 4:7-8; 8:1-36 and 9:1-12. Each time wisdom speaks. The first time wisdom speaks is in Proverbs 1:20-21.

    Wisdom shouts in the street,

    She lifts her voice in the square;

    At the head of the noisy streets she cries out;

    At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings: Proverbs 1:20-21 (NASB)

    The Hebrew word for wisdom is hakmot and this noun is a feminine plural. A literal reading would seem to be "Wisdom shouts in the street," except that the second line is in the singular - "she lifts her voice." F. C. Cook writes,

    In the Hebrew the noun is a feminine plural . . . as though this Wisdom were the queen of all wisdoms, uniting in herself all their excellences.[1]

    That is, since Proverbs 2:6 says that God gives wisdom, the wisdom in Proverbs is the queen of all wisdoms. There is no greater wisdom.

    For the LORD gives wisdom;

    From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

    He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

    He is a shield to those who walk uprightly . . . Proverbs 2:6-7 (NKJV)

    Why Is Wisdom A Woman?

    Why did Proverbs personify wisdom as a woman? The answer is we do not know because Scripture never tells us. However, many have speculated why wisdom is personified as a woman by suggesting different ideas, but we are never told. The explanations are merely speculation. It is wrong to state that Proverbs is written from a father to his son and then suggest that wisdom is personified as feminine in order to make wisdom appear attractive to the son when Proverbs 5:15-20 warns men to avoid prostitutes. Such a conclusion is contrary to the teaching of Scripture.

    Others suggest that wisdom is feminine because the Hebrew word is assigned the feminine gender. But this conclusion is wrong since the grammatical structure clearly refers to a female such as in Proverbs 3:13-15 and 9:1.
