  • Judy Kay - in Reply on Psalms 91
    I'm glad you asked this question because I understand how confusing that sentence might sound. I hope I make it clear, and I hope it makes you smile at yourself.

    It doesn't mean that anyone "made" the Lord like you make a cake, but more like you make a friend.

    Does that make sense? Oh, there's that word again.

    Smiles and love!
  • Chris - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 3
    Don't stop Bob - I like it! The Church needs good, strong prophetical words of warning at this time - to really shake her up. I don't refer much to the Apocryphal books but do admit there is much in there that is worthy for contemplation, & what you've said aligns well with the Canon of Scripture.

    "And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:7,8). I wonder what the condition of His Bride will be at His Coming? Will she be anxiously awaiting His Coming or recoiling in shame for her many hidden & overt sins?
  • Ruth - in Reply on Matthew 5
    is not going to church one on the Lord's day one of the 10 commandments? and doesn't the bible say Christians should pray together, fellowship and encourage each other? plus children need to see people going to church. we are their role models. if we do not support the churches there will be none. he wants us to go to church.
  • Steve Johnson on James 1
    1) describe "the book of life", and who makes entries there?

    2) describe paradise, and how individuals are assigned to each side.

    3) describe "the great white throne judgement".

    4) describe "the lake of fire", and who will face that punishment.

    i thank you...
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 12:14
    There are likely more than a few Christians who continue to believe that the return of the Lord will be sudden as well as His harvest.

    Could the woman in the wilderness be the Bride keeping herself only unto Him?
  • Arlene Kampe on Titus 1:13
    What does it mean to be "sound in the faith"?
  • Bob Grove on Wisdom of Solomon 3
    What a book of wisdom , there is nothing amiss . The end of the chapter is very revealing to the times in which we live .

    We do live in very adulterous times . And the offspring will be ungodly and bring destruction . ( if they repent salvation is open to all ) but are we not seeing this happening today ? Lawlessness etc...

    Even in Christendom half the people are divorced and many remarried! This is adultery . You don't even have to go that far , there are other ways of adultery to corrupt like adult entertainment etc.

    In the time before Noah the sons of God began to intermarry with women of ungodly men , this was the beginning of the end for that world . Unequal yoke produced destructive offspring. And the rest was history as we know what happened .

    The sons of God where Gods people , not demons or angels as some think . They are sexless and not able to produce offspring with men .

    In Genesis men began to call on the Lord , these where Gods people , they walked with God , how about Enoch ? I'm stopping here , getting long .
  • Mishael and Reading the Book of Revelation - in Reply on Ezekiel 3
    Never wait on someone to spoon feed the Bible to you. Go grab a "Bible steak" and enjoy, any time you want to.

    God gives a blessing to anyone who reads the Book of Revelation. No matter how many times you do it. That's a little preached fact. Revelation 1:3. Claim the blessing.

    I showed you the verse; it's up to you to bless yourself. I read it out loud so the demons can hear how they're going to hell with Satan: again, again, again etc. lol

    I lived in Tulsa 3 years. I heard Christians be naughty saying things about him. I heard them one day laughing about him and what the unbelievers said about him daily on the radio. A holy righteous anger flared up in me and I shouted at them: So! You're going to slice up a brother in the Lord, and leave him for dead??? The Holy Spirit TOLD me not to listen to them. Move along ...

    I listen to Oral Roberts on YouTube Teaching the Book of Revelation ALL the time. He teaches the Word and leaves himself out of it. His comments can be backed up by other scriptures. All the segments are numbered so you can listen to it in order.

    I highly recommend it. A peace settles over my spirit that is almost palpable. A seemingly mysterious Book is not a mystery anymore. These things are coming to the earth and we need to know what is happening. I would NOT steer you wrong.

    Ask God to bless your body and heal you; finances; children to be Saved; and other requests. Use that promised blessing
  • Barbara Satkoski - in Reply on Revelation 22
    My question is not regarding Revelation 22, just the Bible or Religion in general.

    I was raised Catholic, went through all like Baptism, Confession, Communion, Confirmation, Holy Matrimony and attended Church on Sundays and other Religious days, But I do not ever remember reading a Bible. As a matter of fact, I don't think I ever really looked at a Bible, except for the Missles we had, till I was an adult. Also I sort of left the Catholic Church after a time. I started questioning things as a teen, and then later after a while just left it. I was always taught that it was a sin for Catholics to go to others churches, and I never understood that. But now I am hearing/learning/?? that I am not saved? If that is so, How do you know that I am not saved? Who says so and how do I get saved if I am not? Who will save me? What version of the Bible is the best for a beginner to start with??? And if I feel the need to talk to someone about this subject, who would that be?? I cannot talk to anyone I know, because the emotions flow out thru tears and I have a hard time with that. Sometimes, as old as I am I just feel like a lost soul. I KNOW that I am NOT a Satanist, but I am a sinner according to the 10 Commandments and I think I have always believed in God. Except for a time, when I thought Aliens might have hand a hand in our origins. But I sense that God or his spirit, or goodness has always been with me, even more so recently, though I could not for the life of me understand why. If you have any answers for me that would be awesome. I am open to it. Thanks and God Bless.
  • Yvonne McCullar on Luke 14:26
    What if one dies but has never forgiven someone for what they did.
  • Bob Grove - in Reply on Proverbs 11
    I could not afford one so I stayed single . No regrets single is much better than a deadlock if you get into a unholy marriage . You only get 1 until she dies so make sure you make a wise choice .

    Two is better than one if it's Good .
  • Bob Grove - in Reply on Matthew 5
    You are right , when people forget God they will be turned into hell , not because that's Gods choice for them , but they have chosen it , not knowing the outcome . Sodom and Gormoria , is been played out again . To the faithful stay with the bible your source . We must overcome and God says He will make us overcome . Bob Grove
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ezekiel 3
    Every time you read Revelation, you get a Blessing from God.

    Does anyone need a blessing? Healed?

    If you don't understand something; enter this website and use the SEARCH box. Type in a few words from the verse you want explained. Hit the New Testament only button; if that is where your scripture is.

    Tap on the verse and it should turn yellow. Scroll downward till you see the COMMENTARY box. Open it and read what elder Scholars have commented on that scripture.

    Really good Bible Study helps!

    If the search engine can't find your scripture you'll see another BOX to take you directly to Google. I find a LOT of verses that way.

    There's some really good links on the opening page to go to to learn new scripture or explanation.

    Explore like Columbus. :D
  • FAMINE OF HEARING the WORD OF GOD - in Reply on Matthew 5
    I know what you have encountered. When I walk into a Church, if no one greets me and welcomes me to the service; it's a sign that the wonderful heart of Jesus is barely beating there.

    You have to wonder how people's livesare impacted by sermons on psychology or marriage counseling?

    It's true that the last days Churches will be starved for hearing the Word of God.

    Why is it that people don't feel brave enough to let the Pastoral staff know that they would really love to hear more Bible explanation of Scripture? It's a wonderful feeling to leave Church and be filled full of Gods Word and the time spent in the presence of the Holy Spirit giving the Light of Jesus on his Word. It fills you up. Makes you want to tell someone else what you learned that day.

    I truly believe that if the true believers, would turn off the media, get on the floor beside the bed and pray their broken hearts out to God for a revival; God will respond to his beloveds tears.

    There really is a famine for the hearing Of Gods Word. Now the Government is trying not only to prevent Church services; but also Mandate that no SINGING is allowed in Church because we might blow corona virus onto the people near us! How dare they do this? It is NOT our President who is doing that. It is the Godless House of Representatives that brazenly uses our President to further their campaigns to remove God from this country.

    I mean, one old lady atheist was able to get prayer, Ten Commandments and the Pledge of Allegiance to our National Flag thrown out of schooL. Our children know nothing about Jesus and His Love for them. And NOW, a famine for hearing anything about God. WOE to the United States! Once full of Justice, Mercy and belief that all people were created Equal..has almost been dissolved by Satan possessed people.

    YES people, Jesus is returning soon! He's coming whether we believe in Him or not.

    Your time is short to get your business straight with God. Get to it. Mishael
  • Herman Dcouto - in Reply on Genesis 2
    Dear Brothers & Sisters

    Please expound on this scripture and tell me if Yahusha rose on the Sabbath or Sunday. Refer Mathew 12:40 if you agree on this then on what day was He hung on the Cross. On what day was He crucified?

    regards

    Herman
  • Irene on Ezekiel 3
    I've always wondered why the book of Revelation wasn't preached very much from our preachers
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    I had to write this twice because something in the website happened when it sent.

    Please look at the part 2, I sent to you.
  • Frank Snell on Luke 22:36
    My thought is that because we have laws that allow us to protect ourselves from those that seek to do us harm as well as rob us of all the things needed to survive. Other wise we would be as sheep led to slaughter, taken advantage of at every turn by those that neither believe or have any regard for others but them selves. Of course I will bring up the death of 6 million people in WW 2. Could you stand by and watch your own families lives taken from you before your very eyes and you still live and not raise a hand to try to save them? I am not a war monger by any means, but I believe there is a time and place otherwise we could be speaking German or have Oriental overlords in our lives right now. One other thing I do not think Zondervans had made it to that neighborhood yet.
  • Part Two SIGNS OF THE TIMES on Hosea 10:12
    Matthew 16:3

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

    Daniel 7:25

    And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws:

    Luke 21:25

    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; the sea and the waves roaring;

    Sorry for doing this twice. This site wiped out half of it. Have no idea where it went. It was a reply to the question about weathermen.

    Weather prediction is not witchcraft. People have been forcasting since Jesus time on earth and he didn't say anything about that.

    He did ask them why they are not able to recognize the signs of the times? Why were they seemingly uninformed about prophesies that were being fulfilled. Much like we are today. Life happens so fast that we barely have time for anything.

    In the Daniel scripture it mentions daylight savings time. Most people don't like it; but it's good for sports games, etc. However animals & plants live by daylight hours.

    Recently in the news it was said ALL the worlds calendars should be changed to ONE.

    That last scripture covers forcasting on weather events: like hurricanes, tremors, dust storms, wet seasons, dry seasons, solar storms:

    Also Space related events. There's a scripture on a star (asteroid?) Wormwood. There's been a warning by NASA of one traveling towards earth now. All this can be googled.

    Our President has formed a new committee to address that issue. A protective Space Program. I hope it gets voted on in the House. Praise God.

    Let's be more attentive to ALL the signs of the times. Amen.
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 11
    "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies." (Proverbs 31:10)

    "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised." (Proverbs 31:30)

    The Lord's view of a woman's beauty and it ought to be ours as well.
  • SIGNS OF THE TIMES - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Believe it or not, the farmers and fisherman were weather forcasting in Bible times. Shepherds forecast when sheep were going to give birth.

    Matthew 16:3

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

    Daniel 7:25

    And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws:
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Timothy 1
    Richard, I believe that I wrote to you a few moments ago in a similar vein, but to respond to your question here.

    It is true that Paul (then Saul, the Jew, the Pharisee), did commit those heinous crimes of blasphemy, persecution of Christians, & murder. Yet when he turned to the Lord, He found God's Mercy upon him. And we know this was a fact because of his encounter with the Living Christ on Damascus Road & the commission given to him to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles & others.

    Then to apply Hebrews 10:26 in the same way would be wrong as we would have to ask, "is it possible for a believer to commit such sins as Saul, the unbeliever, did?" If you feel, "Yes", then I would say that there is no room for repentance & forgiveness. Rather, I believe (& I feel you would agree also) that a Christian cannot sin in that way. And I would add that a true believer cannot live a life of any type of sin: if the Spirit is present, there would be very clear checks about the matter & pleadings towards repentance & restoration. If the Spirit is not in residence, there would be no conviction, indeed, without the Spirit of God, we are not even Christians.

    But as I mentioned in my other comment to you on the Hebrew passages: they referenced particularly to the sins of apostasy, when the Jews who had turned to Christ, or those fake 'believers' who shared in the blessings, then turned against Christ & His Gospel to return back to Judaism & the Law, which only led to death. To these, there would be no more place for repentance.

    So none of these apply to you: you are saved, you have not committed the sins of Saul, & you have not apostatized. And I don't believe you are in a lifestyle of sin, according the pain in your heart about this matter. You need the assurance from the Word & the Spirit that you are a child of the King & nothing will annul that holy relationship. Keep storing God's Word in your heart & look for that confirmation in your spirit.
  • Chris - in Reply on Galatians 6
    Sheila, those verses can be confusing, that is why we must appeal to the original language to find the difference.

    Galatians 6:2: the meaning of 'burdens' here is a 'weight' = baros, in Greek. And in the context of the verse, Paul is imploring the Galatian Church that should help carry (or, share) each others' weights. In verse 1, the point is made of a believer overcome by some sin; instead of accusing that person, they should help that person to restoration, & in so doing they would share that burden by their understanding, care & help given to that person. So too, if a believer is worrying, perplexed, or having financial or marital problems, etc., another who is enjoying victory in Christ should quickly volunteer assistance to ease that weight that is getting the sufferer down which may also cause them to grow weak in faith.

    Galatians 6:5: the Greek here is "phortion" = load. This sounds similar in meaning to the other word, baros, but its use is for the load that we carry ourselves, or as a ship, or truck might carry. These are loads we can't share with another & on a personal level, it means that we have to carry & be responsible for our own loads as we walk along life's road. Paul, I think, is specifically referring to how we maintain our Christian life: are we careful, watchful, prayerful, self-examining, etc.? These are loads we all carry as we try to please the Lord with our lives. And these loads cannot be shared with another - they are for us individually to carry. Yet, Jesus says in Matthew 11:30, that His "burden is light". Unlike the heavy burdens the Jewish religious leaders placed on the people, Jesus says that following Him won't be heavy at all, as He (by His Spirit) is there to make our Christian experience light on burden & heavy on joy & peace.
  • Ct - in Reply on Luke 14:26
    Debra I saw these numbers as well for years. I searched for years on end for understanding. My advice is to not research them online as you will be lead to Doreen Virtue and new agers who speak of angel numbers. If you awaken at one of these times in the middle of the night immediately pray. If during the day what was in your heart before you saw the number? Was it anxiety and sin? Is their repetitive sin within your life? If so get right with God and The WORD. Do not fear. Do not accept the anxiety. Pray. Praise Jesus in his name. As stated there is no scripture to provide us an answer. I can only provide my personal opinion and I stayed semi shallow here. When God calls, answer. Repent. Change.

    May God Bless You
  • David Eldon Siebel on Psalms 98
    Praise is truly important. Especially in times of great distress. Recently I was under persecution because the powers that be wanted a natural explanation for my skills. They wanted a weakness to exploit for the sake of there sadistic pleasures. But I made it clear my greatest strength is from that of The Holly Spirit. As a member of the Creed of Christians I have trained and experienced the hounds of horror. But despite the immense torment that the Devil himself has brought upon me I still thank God for it all. Because if it wasn't for these impactful experiences, how could I truly know what it means to be a Man of God?

    Pray for me Brothers and Sisters. For the journey has only just begun.
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Page 2.

    The first part of knowing & accepting God's forgiveness is agreeing with God that He has indeed called you to repentance, He has truly forgiven you & accepted you according to His Word, you are in His family now & at great liberty to partake of His goodness & enjoy the new life He has given you. To harbour fears of being unacceptable & in judgement are no longer of the Lord, but of the enemy of your soul who wants to keep you caged & bound in his lies. Continue to read & study the Scriptures with this thought in mind. I always recommend the study of 1 John & especially for you, chapter 5, verse 13: a very positive confirmation to all who have called upon the Name of the Lord for salvation, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that YE MAY KNOW (i.e. to know with all assurance) that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." Do you believe? Have you put your faith in Jesus? Then the promise is that YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE NOW & nothing, but nothing, can separate you from God's Love because He now only sees you through His Son, His only begotten still with the nail scarred Hands. Such is His Love for you - Hold onto Him - He's holding onto you.
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Page 1.

    Richard, if I could add to Fred's good advice to you. Oftentimes, we Christians look at a Scripture & form a judgement, whether to our favour or not. It's always a good practise to learn as much as you can about a Bible book in regards to the authorship, readership, reasons for writing, etc. Hebrews was written primarily to Jews who had converted to Christ or likely, appeared to do so. So, unlike Gentile converts, these Jews had a lot of the OT already in their minds & so the writer had to deal with much of that. We can't go into that here; as you read this epistle with that in mind, you will some of these hurdles they had to overcome.

    Hebrews 10:26,27, is one of those warnings given. It was directed to some who had or were planning to leave the faith (apostatize); in other words, they wanted to reject Christ & His salvation preferring to return to Judaism. Hence the 'sin' spoken of in v26, is the sin of Christ rejection by turning back to Judaism. So the writer goes on in v28,29, that if those who wilfully disobeyed the Law in times past were executed for their crime, how much more worthy will be the punishment for any who now consider the Sacrifice of Christ as a useless vain offering, showing hatred to God's gracious Work.

    Do you believe the above applies to you brother? I would think not, but you know your circumstances. As well, when these apostates left, they would have not had any convictions about their actions - they were cast off to join the throng of Christ-rejectors, & more so, having also once been partakers of the Spirit's offerings (6:4-6, shows the same warning there also). Your moving testimony of your spiritual struggle tells us that the Spirit of God has been working on you right through your life. No-one who has been cast off from God ever senses conviction & a call to repentance. You have responded to His Call, in spite of self will & obstinacy in the past.
  • Bryan on Isaiah 1
    Good day, I have a question that might sound silly but I'd like to get outside input. The Bible is very clear about witchcraft, predictions on the future ext.; what about the weatherman? He is predicting the future however it's not witchcraft.....? Thanks and God Bless
  • Sheila - in Reply on Ephesians 6
    "And we know Satan is the God of this world". ? So is it useless to pray for this world?
  • CHARLES JORDAN - in Reply on Matthew 5
    Remember the simplicity and let it free you.

    Salvation comes by the grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

    Grace ?....a gift from God, undeserved.

    Faith ?....read the Bible....and your faith grows

    Christ Jesus.... who said I am the Way, the Truth, the Life and no-one comes to the Father except through me.

    Forget about Churches they're ALL fakes and infiltrated....ALL.

    I walk alone, with Jesus Christ.

    I have been with Him for 40 years.

    Talk to Him ( pray) and read the Bible EVERY DAY...and you're way ahead already.

    Amen.
