    does God forgive 2 abortions?
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Hi Rob,

    I'm wondering what your motive is for coming to a Bible website and accusing Christians who believe the trinity of being under a "curse"- something that most Christians believe in. Is that how you lovingly are looking to exchange information about the Bible to edify each other or are just looking to start a quarrel and do the opposite? Romans 14:19, Ephesians 4:32, Ephesians 4:29.

    The reason people believe that God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Ghost) are one is that it literally says that in the Bible in 1 John 5:7 and elsewhere: Link

    Do you think this is a salvation issue where someone may go to hell for believing the Bible verses such as 1 John 5:7 or why else are you so strong to condemn Bible believing Christians? What if someone accused you of what you're accusing others- that you yourself are spreading a "heinous doctrine" and are under a "curse," how would that make you feel and would it be true?
  • Candace Good on Romans 15:13
    I guess I would like to know why is all this corruption happen in the world today? God is of Love and all I see is hate... Is this suppose to happen, what's going on?
  • Rob - in Reply on 1 John 2
    Jesus was born of God !

    Does that help you ?

    Let's get over this false doctrine. Of the trinity!

    Why was Jesus born in Bethlehem? Think about it !

    He did not have a mans flesh !

    Can you put 2and 2 together?
  • Shirley on 2 Maccabees 2
    What can be gleaned from verses 1-8?
  • Ronald - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    To Chris: I have been reading discussion on here for about 3 months. I have always looked for your comments as they are so insightful and biblical! Are you a pastor? And what part of the country do you live in? I know you will just pass my comments of praise for you to our Father! Blessings Galatians 2 : 20
  • Lou Contino on Malachi 4
    Behold the FINALITY, THE ALPHA & THE OMEGA OF RIGHTEOUSNESS God speak's of in Malachi. NOTHING BEFORE OR AFTER replaces CHRIST'S JESUS VISITATION to His people. And who are His people? All those who hear His words and live extending Mercy and Compassions to others. Upon the cross Christ said, "IT IS ACCOMPLISHED." He never said, there will be more prophets coming after Me to declare who is Righteous or Infidel. And what prophet before or after Christ Jesus ever gave blind their sight, lame their mobility, deaf their hearing, the dead life, broke Men's hardened hearts to think of others before themselves and ROSE FROM THE DEAD HIMSELF for hundreds to see Him again. Accept & Believe JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD. Yes you and I did not see this. But, He told us He would and He could not lie. Even to Pilate when asked if He was a King, Jesus could not lie and said,"I AM". You think He didn't know He could escape the cross by saying, 'No I am not a King. These people are just accusing me of such.' HE CANNOT LIE. Proving He was SINLESS and demonstrating to us that HE IS THE WAY TO LIFE! Our captivity in Sin is over! Ask & receive faith to follow in His footsteps. And as we see in His path to the cross, He was helped by a man; so in turn He helps Man carry his cross every moment of every day! Come to Christ Jesus and drink freely of Living waters to be a Spirit of Light to Praise God Forever.
  • TRIBULATION CHOICES on Genesis 4
    Why do people NEED a choice on PRE, MID, or POST Tribulation RAPTURE!???

    Everybody thinks they must makes choice about every Daffy Duck, bugs bunny or Wiley Coyote scenario?

    Jesus is stressing that no one knows! He doesn't know! Only Father God knows and He is only willing to hint at SIGNS ALL OCCURING SIMULTANEOUSLY at the same moment in time.

    THAT WOULD BE NOW!!

    There's no first, second or 3rd class. That was many people selling books to be enriched by sales. Look at all those rapture books on Amazon! Which one do you buy into?

    Doesn't it make sense to BUY into what Jesus Christ our Savior said about it??

    Be Ready

    Be Watching

    Have Your Lamps filled with Holy Spirits Oil

    Look Up

    Watch and Pray that you may ESCAPE

    He's coming as a thief in the Night: which means our society will be Spiritually Dark..like it is NOW.

    Those kids that you love and would do anything for: need to get born again now!

    We're going to know each other in heaven. Have a family meeting and pray the prayer together. Back on the opening page of this website is a LINK, "Become A Christian". It's enough to get the kids and others you love and will miss terribly (if they neglect so great a salvation)...saved!

    Wearing crosses and Christian tee shirts will not get us into heaven. You have to be born again as written in John chapter 3. You can't be ashamed of carrying a Bible; reading it; saying "in Jesus Name, Satan get out of my life!!! We have to renew our minds on scripture so we can live cleaner and stop cursing and swearing. I know it's hard, but the Holy Spirit will help you. I got totally off drugs and alcohol in a week! That's a miracle. Let your faith shake heaven For everyone's deliverance. Throw out anything remotely like an idol.

    Don't miss your chance to be ready NOW.

    I am praying that God will bless us all and help us to get strength from each other, and the Holy Spirit who undertakes & undergirds you're strength and faith.

    Mishael
  • ALL SIGNS SIMULTANEOUSLY HAPPENING THE SAME TIME on Psalms 1
    JESUS GAVE US SIGNS:

    "Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?"

    4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

    6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

    7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

    8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

    9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

    10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

    11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

    12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

    13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

    16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

    17 Let him which is on the housetop NOT come down to take any thing out of his house:

    18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

    19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

    20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

    21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

    22 And except those days should be shortened, no flesh would be saved.
  • Why Jesus went into hell for - in Reply on Proverbs 29:2
    Some believe that while Jesus' body was in the tomb, His spirit was in hell. Scripture does not support that position when it is taken in context and we look at the meaning of the word "hell." In the Old Testament, the place of the dead or the place of departed souls was called "Sheol." It was to this place that all souls of the dead went to await resurrection.

    In the New Testament, we find the story of Lazarus and the rich man who both died and went to Hades (Luke 16:19-31). The King James translates the Greek word "hades" as hell but most other translations use the Greek word. Hades had two separated parts. Those who died in faith believing in God's promise waited for the resurrection in Abraham's Bosom. Those who died spiritually separated from God wait in torment for the resurrection unto death, or eternal separation from God. The rich man was on the torment side and Lazarus was in Abraham's Bosom, which was called "paradise" by the LORD Jesus Christ when He addressed the thief who found faith the day Jesus was crucified (Luke 23:42-43)

    For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment" (2 Peter 2:4). The word translated "hell" here is not the Greek word "hades" but is the Greek word "tartarus" meaning abyss or the lowest regions. This could very well be the "gulf" that was fixed between the place of torment and Abraham's Bosom (Luke 16:26).

    Wherefore He saith, When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that He ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fulfill all things Ephesians 4:8-10. Leading captivity captive seems to refer to Jesus taking all those that waited in Paradise to heaven to be with Him. The descending into the "lower parts" then refers to Jesus mission of declaring victory
  • Lurlene Biddle on Revelation 5
    Where did the 24 elders come from? Those that were spoken of in the book of Revelaton?Were they from the earth?
  • WESLEY J BARNARD - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    A truly humbling truth has come to my attention via Spirit. All organized religions are creations of man and are in deep spiritual darkness. Proof?

    Spirit told me to read and meditate on Revelation 12:9 where John records Satan has deceived the whole world. Absorbing this truth requires great humility because most of us have some pre-conceived ideas that we call 'knowledge'. However, this passage should give all of us pause.

    Satan is the ruler of this world and has been from the beginning following the Fall of Adam and Eve.

    But now the other question arises: How long will The Most High allow the world to dwell in spiritual darkness?

    Daniel 12:4 supplies the answer: Until the time of the end.

    Most of us believe we are living right now 'in the time of the end'. If so, we must also recognize that new insights and revelations, such as this one, will become common place now. Why? Because 'the book' is now open to those who have been 'born again' with the Holy Spirit of The Most High.

    Just thought I would share that tidbit with you to meditate upon. Shalom.
  • Times of the Return of Jesus - in Reply on Luke 21:32
    Questions: "What happens at the end times? The end times is the final events of world history as we know it and is foretold by prophecy.

    The end times is the final events of world history as we know it, punctuated by the rapture - tribulation - Battle of Armageddon - Christ returning - Satan being put into the pit - the 1,000 year millennium - Satan's release - Satan's final defeat - and mankind's final judgment, as expanded below. While many believe that these end time events are about to start, the truth is, we can only guess.

    For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits [from the cross]; then, when he comes [the rapture], those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power [after the 1,000 year millennium] (1 Corinthians 15: 22-24).

    The Rapture

    The word "Rapture" does not appear in the Bible but is used by Christians to describe an end time event. Rapture comes from the Latin word raptus which means "seize," "snatch" or "take away." It refers to those who obey and follow Jesus being taken up to meet Christ in the air.

    This is the first rapture. The time when all the saints through out history will rise to receive new eternal bodies combined with their souls.

    For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

    The exact details of the rapture remain a mystery; however, we know that we will be physically resurrected at the Rapture (John 5:29; Acts 24:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

  • What are the Do's and Don'ts of drinking alcohol for Christian?
  • Mark Lytle on Revelation 1
    Wow. I have been reading through these comments. There seems to be a disagreement with meanings.

    Let me run this by you all. Did you know that scripture, and it's meanings

    are meaningless in some cases.Let me explain.

    I was a missionaries kid. My parents took me to Papua New Guinea in 1963.

    My father preached the gospel to the darkest of the dark hearts.

    I witnessed a great moving of our lord

    and the heathens of darkness came to the light of our lord. They were excited and wanted more of this lord.

    Now, they did not have any books, or anything to guide them. They never heard of a Bible. They were saved from their sins by hearing my father preach the gospel to them.

    They would shout and cry. They were filled with the spirit of our lord. And then they proceeded to learn about the Bible.
  • Ray on Luke 21:32
    What are the things that supposed to happen the generation to see Jesus come
  • Does anyone know where the Pretrib Rapture is in the Bible ?

    I can not find it , I only find the 1st resurrection and the coming of Christ our hope on the last day . As Jesus said .

    I was taught it and believed it until I read the Bible for myself ! And low and behold it's not there in word or event , unless you can twist scriptures out of context , but then we could have 300 denominations if that was done .
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 1 John 2
    I'm sorry Rob, but this statement seems backwards. So if I spoke a word to you, you would say the word was there before I was?? God Almighty, the Father, is the Most High. Jesus Christ is the first beloved Son of God. They are a part of each other.

    So now you're calling people who believe that Jesus Christ existed before He was born on earth a "cult"? Seriously, maybe just ease up and wait to ask Jesus Christ yourself? Come on brother.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Cathy (& Karcelia) you're both so right. When the foundation is weak & not in prepared soil, the building will crack & collapse.

    Most without the love of God in their hearts, have as their foundation the welfare & happiness of the mother rather than the embryo or unborn child. Why? The embryo is only that, an embryo - even though there may be life there, it is still something less than human, they say. The welfare of the mother is more important as her usefulness is greater to her family & society.

    Those who love the Lord & know His Will, regard every human life in every stage of its development, as special & precious & to destroy that life is murder & so the destroyer stands before the God Who gave life & a life's Plan to that child. In our quest to enjoy life in both intimate & non-intimate environments, we pay little heed to the outcomes of our thoughts & actions. And so the verse seems most applicable: "every man did that which was right in his own eyes" (Judges 17:6). It was no longer what God required of them & us but what we deem as correct & warranted based on our desires - and as you said, this folly is increasing in greater measure in the world around us.

    To abort a child prior to 20-22 weeks as acceptable, is still murder. Will any government propose that it should be when both sperm & ovum unite is when life is created? Unfortunately, most don't accept that life commences before that point, even though it is clearly seen in the laboratory. Is the embryo then likened to an ant which we could step on & extinguish, giving it little further thought? How will mankind stand before God in that day? What excuse will he give or can he give? God's Righteousness will blow open the inherent wickedness deep within his heart & manifest all that has been covered over for the sake of happiness & expediency.

    God gave witness that Jesus is his son .

    There is no higher authority.

    So how say some of you it's not the case . Actually Jesus is not his son but God himself !

    You can not understand what God said if you alter exactly what he said " my Son .

    I have another question for you at about the same level , which came first the chicken or the egg ?

    regarding abortion--I too--am against it--but I have friends whose views are totally different--just yesterday, my neighbor & I were discussing this--she said she was for abortion--she knew two young girls whose lives would have ben ruined if they had not had an abortion. I questioned her--I said--how do you know that? So many times we let our emotions rule against God's Word. I just hit 70--and I have watched the racial injustice increase--the lifestyles decrease--it seems like we are on a watered down path--anything goes--as long as it feels right to you.
