  • A disciple on Genesis 21
    Jean (cont.); You wrote, "..a Muslim asked me to justify what took place in Genesis 21." The keyword is Just! What was just about despising her mistress? What was just about mocking Isaac? What is just about arrogantly rejoicing over someone else's unhappiness and trial, and hatefully mocking at their joys? The LORD said that Ishmael would be a mongrel and a terror to everyone and it sure is true!
  • A disciple on Romans 10
    Michael (cont.); You dare to say that the Apostle Matthew, who was filled with the Holy Spirit at "THE" Day of Pentecost, and the first to write the Holy Glad Tidings Narrative the same year that the Lord ascended; that HE didn't have a clue? How then did Jesus open their understanding to Scripture, while according to you they did not understand?
  • A disciple on Psalms 80
    Mable; Forgive me, but WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? "GOD Said as long your attach abuse in me I will abide in you.we will never be for from his tree of life???" The Lord doesn't "abide" in those who abuse Him! Also, the Tree of Life is guarded by an Angel with a flaming sword to prevent sinful fallen men to approach; until the time to come when the evil in men is forever put away. Please write me!
  • A disciple on Genesis 21
    Jean; Tell your friend, first of all about Hagar: that in ancient times it was normal and acceptable to have household servants; either hired or owned; for many practical reasons. It didn't necessarily imply oppression or cruelty as it would today. Many times it was because someone had nothing to pay his debt but with his life in service to the one he owed. Maybe Pharaoh gave her to Sarah? Genesis 12
  • A disciple on Romans 10
    Michael; How do you know what kind of tree it is except by its fruit? The fountain springs either fresh water or bitter. God is ONE, His Spirit is one, and His Word is one. There is no word or standard for one age, and another one for others later. God hasn't changed His character, nor His purpose and will concerning us. While He waits with patience for men to repent, His judgments are the same.
  • A disciple on Romans 10
    Michael; You read the Sermon on the Mount, and you think that Jesus was not referring to us? What part exactly was it? The beatitudes? Not being a hypocrite? Loving others and being perfect as our Father in heaven? Doing all these His sayings? What words out of the whole Bible, do you think, DON'T APPLY TO YOU? And do you think the Holy Spirit is going to confirm your words to disregard Scripture?
  • Eutychus on John 19
    "Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin." Vs 11. I've been asked, "Who is this, the HE that hath the greater sin?" Is it God? The answer is found in the previous chapter, vs 35, "Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priest have delivered thee unto me"..
  • Walter - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    Are your prayers from the heart? That's what God looks upon. Don't worry about trying to impress Him with your words.
  • Eutychus
    "Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice...(ALL SHALL HEAR HIS VOICE)
    And shall come forth; ALL they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and ALL they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation". Jesus forgot about the oversight no doubt. Or maybe, there isn't a rapture, but a resurrection?
  • Eutychus on John 4
    "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." Where do you worship? It must be special, for God, "dwelleth not in temples made with hands; neither is worshipped with men's hands..." Acts 17:24b-25a. "Howbeit the most High dwelleth NOT in temples made with hands." Acts 7:48 The 'place' we must worship is, "IN SPIRIT", found in the little community of TRUTH.
  • Eutychus
    "He must increase, but I must decrease." vs30. See Jesus in the garden, "What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit IS WILLING, the flesh is WEAK." Matthew 26:40-41. The spirit is willing to resist temptation;but the flesh is weak in temptation. In fasting, our flesh weakens (decreases), our spirit strengthens (increases). We choose which.
  • Eutychus
    The critical issue is "By what process are we born again? What happens?" And Ezekiel tells us "A new heart will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you" Ezekiel 36:26. Being born again is having the Spirit of God, to enter into place of the spirit of man. "For what man knoweth the things of a man? even so, the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God." 1 Corinthians 2:11.
  • Brother Sonny on Hebrews 7
    Hello Eutychus, WHERE IS MELCHIZADEK? Psalms 90:2 "from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God". Jesus is God,John 20:28, and therefore Melchizadek seems to be an Old Testament appearance of Jesus before He appeared in the New Testament as baby Jesus. Very, very deep.
  • BSP on Matthew 10
    Verse 29: Not even one sparrow could fall to the ground without Jehovah God knowing about it. We are worth more than sparrow so if God cares for these little creatures, how much more does he care about us?!
  • Eutychus
    Will; Hebrews 11:3, "THROUGH faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." Does it mean we will have access to the Universe that God created?

    Yes,we already are heir to that thru faith in Jesus. But it goes further than that; with it, we please God. "But without faith it is impossible to please God" vs6
  • Eutychus

    How can Paul equate Melchisedec to Jesus, who is God on earth among us???? Paul isn't equating Melchisedec to Jesus...he is drawing a comparison between their ministries, and their priesthoods. And Jesus' ministry and priesthood is superior. "By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament" vs 22. Melchizedec's ministry was temporal...Jesus' ministry is eternal, everlasting.
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 7
    "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually." No beginning, no end of is the mystery...regarding which I will not attempt an answer. WHERE IS MELCHIZADEK? If he has no end of days, he must be alive...where is he? On earth? In heaven? Where then is Melchizadek?
  • Eutychus on Hebrews 6
    "That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation." vs 18. WHAT ARE THE TWO IMMUTABLE THINGS, Paul is speaking of here? Don't know? Read carefully, to verse 12, of chapter 7. That verse names the two immutable things...The priesthood, and the law, which have been fulfilled in Jesus. Both have been remade, made better, fulfilled, in Jesus.
  • Eutychus on John 2
    Jesus built His church, which today is the sole Temple of God. He was incensed enough to drive the buyers and sellers (Luke 19:45) out of the temple of that must he view buying and selling in his church, the Temple of our day? We pay preachers, who are selling what they know to us. "And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought"
  • Eutychus
    "And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high". This is the 'power' spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 22:29, "Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God". If we do not heed this truth, we have none to blame but ourselves. We must know the Word. We must know the power. Else where will we end up?
  • Eutychus on Luke 24
    "Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures." This is not listed among the so-called 37 NT miracles. But a miracle it was. Due to this singular event, we have the NT in our hands today. If we cannot claim this miracle unto ourselves (though I do in my life, do you?), we can certainly claim the NT that resulted from this miracle. And that's good enough for me.
  • Eutychus on Luke 23
    "And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?" This is a 'death cross' confession, for before that utterance, both reviled Jesus, Matthew 27:44 and Mark 15:32. Check it'll see the man repented after reviling Jesus...
  • Eutychus
    "How say they that Christ is David's son?" After answering all their "got'cha" questions with ease and dispatch, Jesus asked them one. But his to them, left them stumbling. Do you the answer? If not, go to Romans 1:1-4. It is that answer. "The seed of David with the flesh, and, The Son God with power, IN ONE PERSON, JESUS". Yes, it is complicated, but think about'll get it, God willing.
  • Eutychus on Luke 20
    "And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not? But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet." If they admitted John was a prophet, they would be validating Jesus' ministry, his Christhood, a thing they were unwilling to do...Jesus had them trapped. And they well knew it.
  • Eutychus

    "And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought". How can paying a minister, be anything BUT BUYING in the temple (which is the church in meeting in New Testament truth)? How can preaching or teaching for a paycheck be anything BUT SELLING in the temple? God isn't simple minded. Our little excuses to disobey him, are transparent before God.
  • A disciple on 2 Timothy 3
    Eutychus; Every calf knows its mother, and the horse knows its way back to the barn; so why do so many NOT know or even seem to care that they are not getting fed with the truth? That's one thing I've seen for sure, that the ones who feel awkward and out of place, NO-FIT among churches and church-people, are always the ones who DO REALLY KNOW THE LORD, and have basic discernment.
  • Eutychus
    "And they shall scourge him, and put him to death:and the third day he shall rise again." Pilate washed his hands of responsibility for Jesus' death. Yet he had him scourged.This is senseless.Why would the Romans require a man going to death, to be scourged? Would it awaken all the bodily senses, so that the pain of crucifixion would be more intense? I simply do not get this brutality and cruelty.
  • Eutychus on Luke 18
    "Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" The eternal question, deserving the best answer. Today, we would quote John 3:16. But Jesus takes another position, seen in all three synopotic gospels. He said, "sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me." List it under, "Ways to be saved", and think about it carefully.
  • Eutychus
    Just for fun..."But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all." There were 4 (four) cities destroyed that day. Do you know them all? "...Like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the Lord overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath" Deuteronomy 29:23. Zoar was spared, and Lot and family fled to it for safety.
  • Eutychus
    "So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do." So, who among us can honestly say, "we have done that which was our duty to do"? Here is a challenge: read the NT, completely, and count the commandments we are admonished to keep. I guarantee you will be sadly surprised.
