  • Mike - in Reply on John 10:36
    Thank you for your reply. The reason I ask is that in Mark 2:22 says no one puts new wine in old bottles wasn't always wine skins? Also in Luke 19:23 uses the word bank "Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury" Did they have banks when they translated 1611 kjv? Also in Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, wasn't it always "the lion shall down with the lamb? And the our father prayer in Luke 11:2, now says "Our Father which art in heaven" wasn't it always "our father WHO art in heaven"? I have many more discrepancies.

  • Brandon - in Reply on Psalms 90
    Jesus Christ is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    1 John 5:7 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    Isaiah 9:6

    6
    For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

    John 1:1-18

    1
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2 The same was in the beginning with God.

    3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

    14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    1 John 5:6-8

    6
    This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

    7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

    John 14:9-12

    9
    Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

    10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

    11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

    12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
  • Lou Contino on Zechariah 7
    Have we noticed that, the commonality of those commenting and discussing God's Word here are from God's children. Children that think of God throughout their day in everything they do. Children who dwell upon God's word for guidance and security. children that seek understanding. This is a safe haven for us and I see God's Spirit in those that believe His Word. Yet, we need to do more to pray for others to answer God's knock at their door. How is it that all we hear on Social & Televised Media has nothing to do with God's Word? It may be best to leave these platforms behind, they neither build your character or assist in building the character of others who are longing to find this safe haven in God's Word in their lives. Heavenly Father: Give us your strength to assist you in your work on others in this world. Help us to put aside racial, financial & political difference which are of no use to the eternal characters of our souls that you build for us all to praise you throughout eternity. In Jesus name, Amen.
  • Larry on Revelation 16:16
    Why are preachers not reading the bible like it says, when the get to the holy ghost, they read (holy spiri) why is this?

    Are they afraid to read it as it is because at involves the evidence of speaking in tongues?
  • Larry on Psalms 90
    There are 3 in the godhead, that work as one, but are seperate beings. The father who sent jesus to the earth to die for us, JESUS AND THE holy ghost which is NOW IS BEEN CALLED THE HOLY SPIRIT( in reading of scripures when they get to the holy ghost they read holy spirit) is this not taking away whatthe bible says?

    Verse 8 and verse 14, Match.

    Starting at verse 7, it is revealed WHO rides with the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords!!!



    The chapter ends with the Beast and the false prophet being cast into the Lake of Fire.

    Know what? I'm going to be there.

    Why do you think it's your job to pose questions that only cause striving?

    You're not as transparent as you imagine.

  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Think as rational as you can , The God head not God heads !

    How many heads do you have ?

    1 I hope or you would belong in a side show somewhere !

    How many heads to millions of creatures have ? Usually one ? Yes one .

    Now here is something that you really need to consider , God said let us make man in our image . Got it ? So how many heads does man have and that includes you ! Let's put this nonsense away it makes a mockery of God .

    Page 2.

    The Holy Spirit resides in all who have come to faith in Jesus Christ (John 14:17) & also convicts men of sin, of righteousness & (coming) judgement. (John 16:7-11). So the Spirit is still working in the World until the appointed time when He is taken away (some argue as to when that time will be). The Son has now returned to the Father (back into the God folder), but He is distinct in that He is now God in the flesh, not as only the Word, but as the Son who has performed all that was required of Him on Earth & now at the Father's right Hand in Heaven (Hebrews 7:25). In the human mind this is a difficult concept to grasp & that is why you are having difficulties. If you want to understand God in a human perspective, it won't work because we don't have anything on this Earth that can adequately compare to Him & our minds don't work in any other way. But do we say then that because we don't believe that such a Trinity can exist, therefore it's impossible for God to be such? I think then, that it's us who have the problem in understanding the Character of God & not the Doctrine.

    Yes, illustrating the Trinity to man's trinitarian composition, is 'problematic': no illustration can adequately do the job, but I felt compelled to use it to try & help you understand, but that didn't work. And lastly, God is Spirit (John 4:24), the Word was part of that Spirit, & the Holy Spirit was sent out into the World. So we only knew & heard God as Spirit in the OT. After Jesus ascended into Heaven, we see the (visible) God in Jesus, but we also know that God is still there (Revelation 8:2 & about 3,000 other verses to prove it). God hasn't disappeared & Jesus has not taken His place. So please look into this & see where your theology has become skewed or maybe you are under some false teaching. May the Lord give you light on this very important matter.

    That's an interesting depiction of the Trinity you gave, Hugo. One problem though: you have shown to the non-Christian person three separate pictures which of course represent three different gods. That's not what it should be. If I had to use a similar illustration, I would say, show a folder (as one used for documents) & say that this represents God. Then take another folder & place it in the 'God folder' & call it "Jesus". Finally, take a third folder & place it in the 'God folder' & call it "Holy Spirit". So what do we have now? We still have three folders, but two of them are within God. But your non-Christian says, "I only see the God folder, where is Jesus & the Holy Spirit?" You can tell him where they are: they are within God or a part of God.

    If he objects to this & says that once they are separated, they becomes three gods, then the answer to that is, that they are all in the one Godhead, but when they separate, they, as part of that Godhead, go out to perform what God intends. So we have the God folder, the Word folder & the Holy Spirit folder all in one God. God sends out His Word (as I wrote earlier), but instead of just words for a prophet to proclaim, e.g. like John the Baptist did, God made His Word a Man to not only be The Prophet, but also to be the sacrificial Lamb & Saviour, the eternal Priest & coming King. And because of this human birth made from Divine Seed (the Word), it is said that "He shall be called the Son of God" (Luke 1:35).

    Rob, what of Colossians 2:9 then?
  • Rob - in Reply on Zechariah 4:6
    This was the question Christians at the time of this new doctrine of the rapture of the church , back in the 1800s asked . I think it's a tough one since all saints are removed to heaven , yet the true solders must fight the Antichrist? Seems kind contradicting to me , how about you ?

    So if all the saints are removed , then some how people get saved and are able to do battle with the Antichrist? Seems kinda far fetched to me !
  • Rob on Zechariah 4:6
    If the church is raptured out before the tribulation, who are these saints that are no babes , that the Antichrist makes war with ?
  • SIGNS OF THE END on Genesis 2
    I've heard some really shocking rapture predictions tho past week, or so. Dreams, visions.

    Rapture mentions in scripture: OT and NT are all through the Bible. God inspired it.

    You have to read it and pray daily, pray long, listen with all your strength. Fast. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the mystery.

    We can't just say stuff like "hit me with some truth, Holy Spirit". Try to observe some reverence and worship.

    Lastly, use some common sense. A deep relationship with the Holy Spirit is vital. It is needful to hear for yourself instead of running to and fro asking for other people's (humankind) point of view. It must be backed by scrip

    We are waiting for the times of the Gentiles to be fulfilled. We are the Elect until that is completed. THEN the election will pass back to the Jews. I'm not going to debate this. Too many baseless debates go on in here.

    Jesus is not going to suffer (allow) His Bride to go through the Tribulation.

    People are preaching that she will go through the entire Tribulation; she will go through an asteroid strike that will make all water on earth poisonous. No. The Brides, Bridegroom is going to fetch her off the earth! She will meet her Bridegroom in the clouds.

    Notice in Revelation the His feet do not touch the ground. The next time His feet touch the ground, will be at the Mount of Olives.

    You ask the Holy Spirit about the election!

    Why has the Church been waiting to see the Return of the exiled Jews to begin to return to their homeland? Prophesy is falling into place. People who study prophesy, know these things. The recently signed Abrahamic Accord signed between Israel and some Arab nations; that lasts for 7 years___is HUGE!! ALL dreams and visions will agree with scripture. If God didn't say it in scripture: it may be a pizza dream.

    The Bride will not be here to be confronted by Antichrist. Hint: Go circle that Abraham Accord date on your calendar.

    Keep tuned into Jesus. He is the TRUTH.

  • Hugo Zyl on John 2
    Christian love to all the brothers and sisters in Christ

    This chapter raises another question which Trinitarians cannot answer.

    In God's temple you had the holy place which only the priests could enter, and the holiest of holies which only the high priest could enter once a year. But that temple was not considered to be God. Rather God had His presence IN the holiest of holies. Not the skins or the curtains or the stones or the ark but simply indwelling that space. But now Trinitarians say that Jesus the physical man IS God.

    Question: why was the temple not seen as God if we are to believe that Jesus the physical man is to be seen as God? Why is the foreshadowing wrong? Why is God misleading us as to how He has His presence?

    Correct answer: the physical Jesus was not God. God dwelled in him. Just as the physical temple was not God. God dwelled in it. Thus the foreshadowing is correct. Thus God has lead us correctly to understanding how He has His presence.

    And for that we thank our Father and bless His holy name. Hallelujah!

    Please consider these things carefully my Trinitarian siblings, is my humble request.

    Peace and love in Christ
  • Linda leffel on Isaiah 1
    Where does it say in the Bible about where satay comes back imitating Jesus and sits on my Zion. Claiming to be him?
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 1 John 4
    God Bless you Rob. I am also what God made me. As we all are. I also know that the Lord is the one and only true Judge. Of everything. As the Father committed all judgement unto the Son. Whether you believe that or not is up to you. Why are you judging, condemning, me saying "I can tell you have very little knowledge of the Bible in truth"? Again you are exalting yourself. That you know the "truth" and I don't? Do you think our Father loves you more than me? It saddens me to see this. Do you know of the several teachings of Christ to not exalt yourself? To humble yourself?

    I am also going to state this. As others may look down upon me also. But it is the truth. I do not fear my Father in Heaven. I love Him with everything that I am. All I want to do is what He wants me to do. His Will. What makes Him happy. If He wants to destroy me I know He is all powerful and can do anything He wants. And if that's what He want's then I do too. It's about Him not me.

    I do not want any to perish. Even the most wicked person. But that all shall come to repentance. This is the Will of the Lord. I pray for everyone. Because the Lord has lead me to do so. I am His. Take care Rob.

    This same Jesus, fully man & fully Divine, was crucified, buried, resurrected & ascended to the Father's right Hand. Where once, the Word proceeded out from God, the Word now in flesh, raised in a heavenly Body, sits as the Divine Man at God's right Hand. So Jesus, as we too will be in Heaven, can communicate with each other - I see no problem with this (Hebrews 7:25).

    And in regards to polytheism, by definition, is the multiplicity of gods. The Triune God is definitely not a polytheistic god - that would be sacrilege indeed. We don't have three gods in Heaven - there is only One God expressed in three Persons; I think you are understanding the Trinity teaching from a polytheistic perspective - God cannot be understood like that. If you see Jesus or the Holy Spirit as a lesser Entity, then you have not understood the Doctrine of God - all three in the Godhead are equally God & are the One God: co-equal & co-eternal.

    I gave you the example of your personal trinitarian existence, Hugo: you're composed of spirit, soul & body. Do you accept that? Without even one of those 'parts' you wouldn't be Hugo - maybe you could be some type of sub-human or just floating about in spirit form. Or with the Sun in the Universe: a body of hot gases, giving heat & giving light (3 parts of the one). It wouldn't be a sun as we know, if any entity of it was absent. These are of course poor examples to try & explain the Triune God, but I'm trying to show you that a Trinity does not necessarily mean three that are separate from each other, but can also mean three in one, as with God. But in Heaven now, Jesus is seen as separate because of his taking on of flesh & rising in a heavenly Body. We will be like him in Heaven (1 John 3:2). So please rid your mind that Christians entertain a polytheistic belief of God - that is a wicked belief, as you clearly wrote. Blessings.

  • Maria on Revelation 5
    An observation:

    Revelation 5: Did John leave his body at Patmos & went up in his spirit when he saw the throne? Did he entered heaven???? If so, then his body with no spirit would be left lifeless & would later come back to his body & return to life. Or was He filled with the spirit & had a vision of the throne through the open door & saw the revelation of things to come from the scrolls but was not actually in heaven???
  • Alex on Acts 5:33
    Alex comments about the deity of Christ, How can we know that Christ is truly God ?, Only 1 way we can know for sure its by his WORDS which are his Seeds. The Father said to go forth and multiply but everything has to multiply after its KIND. This go forth and multiply is directed also to Christ thats y the sower of the good seed will go forth an sow his precious seed in humanity, th field being the world,our hearts is the good ground, The fruit is the H.G. Which is God, th wheat is God simply b/c the good seed is the living WORD which is the very Seed of God to whom the word came it made them Gods thus he is able to propagate after the God KIND which proves he is truly God the son, There is no way to refute this to whom the word came it made them Gods. When he breath on them his breath was his WORD which is his Seed and they received the H.G. which is God. Jesus cd not reproduce very GOD IF HE WERE NOT GOD Simply b/c everything has to multiply after its KIND.Thats y Jesus said that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit as GOD IS Spirit.ya gotta realize that the wheat is God simply b/c that good seed is the God seed to whom the WORD came that good seed it made them Gods this cannot be refuted as these are the very words of our lord. He that soweth the good seed is the Son of MAN,Christ Jesus. When he breathe on them he was sowing seed propagating very God as his breath was his seed/WORD . They don't call him the bridegroom for nothin he has a Seed to sow in humanity . Only God and Christ cd reproduce very God in us sinners. We be the FIELD TH WORLD TH bride. Thats y the good seed is the Pearl of great price, Its the very seed of God. Thats when he said b/c i have spoken these words ( seeds ) sorrows have filled your hearts when a woman is in travail she has sorrows b/c her hour is come but after the CHILD comes which is the H.G her sorrows are turned into joy.then he said he wd see us again simply b/c the CHILD IS THE H.G another CHRIST, God

    Once more blessing in Christ on you dear brother Chris

    I feel I have to alter the topic of the discussion for this reply as something came out in your post which startled me greatly.

    I hope I misunderstood you, because I had the impression you wrote that Jesus Christ talks to God the Father like one person speaks to another person!!!

    Do you really believe that? Do all Trinitarians believe it? I have never been long at a Trinitarian church so I honestly did not know this is believed. God have mercy on us. This is absolute polytheism! I thought you simply believed that God had three heads or three independant forms, but to say that one part of God talks to another part of God, and has a chat, this is unimaginable. This is 100% equal to Hinduism where (with all due respect to the Word stating we are not to even to say the names of idols) Shiva goes to visit Vishnu and they spend an hour having a debate about who is greater, or Buddhism where the Buddha may say a certain human needs to go to hell, but then Amitabha comes along and says that because the human visited his temple once he can be born on earth as a bird instead of going to hell, or Greek religion where Hera became jealous of Heracles because Zeus loved him more, etc.

    My dear brother in Christ. Please consider what you are really believing. The very thing that caused God to make Abraham be taken out of his land to go to Canaan was that Abraham rejected the polytheism of his country. Out of a whole country he alone knew the oneness of God, and that God is not a man or men but a Spirit. My ernest desire for you is to be the one person in your community who can leave the traditions of organized religion, and know the oneness of God, and that God is not a man or men but a Spirit.

    Peace and love in our one and only Lord, with none other equal who He can chat with as one among equals, Jesus Christ
