    What does tender eyed mean?
  • Hesed John Bharath R - in Reply on Joel 2:25
    As believers, it's our personal responsibility to exemplify Christ in the culture by our life, word, resources, and by engaging in the political process as fully as the government allows. In reality, what we really want is for someone else to accomplish what God says is our job.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Do you own a Bible?
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 13
    Hi Ronnie,

    I noticed the same logical fallacy is used rationalize your view of Jesus being the wrong name despite the fallacy already being exposed. Did you read what I wrote? If so, I wonder what part of it you don't understand or disagree with?
  • Chris - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    Hi Rob, thanks for your enquiry about how some biblical accounts had found parallels in other ancient cultures/religions. Mishael gives me more credit than I deserve & though humbled by his high regard of my 'knowledge', in reality my abilities are quite minuscule in comparison to the many learned folk out there & who have published well researched material.

    With that in mind, I am totally ignorant of secular/pagan ancient writings or the Rosetta stone. Apart from what one gleans from the Web, I'm unable to add further information to that. However, with what I have read, I wouldn't be overly surprised that there may be some similarities between biblical & other writings. Yet if one would examine the others' accounts, one would find that the similarities are actually not so similar anyway. As well, in some cases, as in some biblical accounts (e.g. the Flood), these could have been transmitted from the survivors of the flood to others & over generations, as the tribes on the Earth multiplied & became more diverse in culture & religion, the account could have also adopted various forms & imagery giving it some authenticity, yet found altered in content because of such transmission.

    So one could assume the same with Creation, the Virgin birth, a God meting out judgement, etc: similarities, but sufficiently dissimilar to warrant a more careful examination, to either prove a connection or not. Why do such parallels occur? I suppose when we deal with the unknown, the spiritual, the belief in a superior being, there must also be some ideas that intersect or coincide with each other. These then appear to us laymen, as perplexing & worthy of further thought or examination. And yet, if we then read the Bible with that thought in mind, we will miss the beautiful consistent thread that runs right through Scripture, showing us the truth & faithfulness of God's Word to us. Other religions showing these 'similarities' would eventually fail in this respect or become divergent.
  • Bob Grove on Psalms 34
    The trinity heresy started well over 100 years after the apostles where gone .

    Tertulian in the second century was a catalyst for the heresy and he was known as poor example of a Christian in his time . But had some compelling arguments to those not wise in scriptures .

    Then the nicean creed by some in the 3 rd century decided to make this trintarian doctrine the Doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church , the majority of Christians at the time opposed it . But Constantine another unholy man made the decision.

    Not a steller beginning , but some of the people that refused the doctrine where actually murdered . Many Of them ,how devilish it was .

    So if it's not in the scriptures , then it's not Gods word .

    Let's see it ! Name the doctrine and it's purpose , found in the scriptures . It's not there .

    The apostles warned that men would bring these false teachings ( unscriptural) into the church and they sure did .

    Twist the scriptures , but it must be in doctrine form .

    With Clear instructions.

    Can you find it ?
  • Ronnie Franklin - in Reply on Revelation 13
    That's the problem with Gentile Christianity you take a Hebrew book that was not even written about you and you twisted. If the Messiah's name was written in three different languages on the stake not cross which is a graven image that most professing Christians wear around their neck or have tattooed on your body. If the name lesus was written why was it not kept in the King James or any other Bible? Messiah was Jewish Hebrew not American Gentile.
  • Ronnie Franklin - in Reply on Revelation 13
    The only question I have for you Mr. Randy is this when Paul was met by the Messiah on the road to Damascus and he spoke to him in the Hebrew tongue and told him his name what name did the messiah say? Jesus or Yahshua?
  • Ronnie Franklin - in Reply on Revelation 13:15
    And you Mr. Samuel probably believe that Yahshua laid down his life for you right?

    Go through your Bible started and Deuteronomy 28 isolate the word flock and the word lost sheep and follow it all the way to the New Testament, then tell me who the lost sheep is and if you are apart of the lost sheep.
  • Jones p t - in Reply on 1 Peter 5:2
    We know that the clergy is behind the crucifixion our Lord Jesus. At present the history is repeating. But ye are chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, and a peculiar people : that ye should shew for the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. Which in the past were not a people, but are now people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 9:10.We the people of Jesus are compelled by his love to preach everybody about Him and his love. The only mediator is him. We can directly speek to Him with his holy spirit abides with us. Church is the communion of his belivers. We worship him by keeping His commadmends in our daily life. We are the temple of our Lord Jesus. 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? 1Corinthians 7:19.
  • Things To Come Upon the Earth-Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 94:16
    Do not be dismayed, for what is happening. True believers are the Bride of Christ, and Jesus knows who are His. He will bring us through this. Like Lots wife, do not ponder on what will happen to those who choose to stay in their sins and reject Gods Son.

    The nations are much like Ezekiels dry bones. Laying in the valley of indecision. Many will stand up. Don't despair. Just prophesy (which means, to speak Gods Word) to the bones.

    Even unsaved people are beginning to feel that something extraordinary is happening.

    All remaining prophesy must happen first.

    The secret agenda of Antichrist is not so secret now. He will take over governments, the many churches will become just one, that the False prophet will oversee.

    50 million Acres of USA farmland belongs to other nations. Areas of food growth will be controlled by Antichrist. Who did this? Unbelieving corrupt industry that lives to hoard money off the backs of the innocent and poor.

    There is no reason to fear or succumb to heart attacks because control is being transferred. Soon Jesus will come to pull us out of here. Stay strong in that thought and do not fear. Compel friends and neighbors to grab onto Jesus as well.

    The fact that things are speeding up is a good thing. We are to be looking up, looking for Jesus in the clouds.

    There are many people who come to the Prayer Request room every day, for all kinds of reasons. If we can help someone who has willingly come here for a moment of prayer or encouragement; we can reach out also to people in our neighborhood, the grocery, the drugstore, old friends in our address books. We can share our testimony and tell how we came to trust Jesus. Pray with them. Overcome the fears of living in a brand new place someday: with the Lover of our souls. The Holy Spirit comes alongside in those conversations and helps us get through to the person. Even over the phone. Miracles like that give our hearts, wings like an eagle; eyes on Jesus.
  • Bob Grove on Psalms 51:12
    Read a lot of verses starting at Genesis 1 26 , Genesis 3 v 22 , John 5v7 was the closest but certainly not specific enough to take seriously.

    John 10.30 , Malachi 3 v 16, 17 , acts , let's face reality there is not a single verse in All scriptures that even Mention the trinity , in context for a God head namely The father , Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit!

    God never changes , do you understand how that could be ?

    Sorry but I don't believe in Christian evolution.
  • Jay - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6:7
    Yes Paul, Praise the Lord, and to continue please read Matthew 24:11-13.

    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.

    Matthew 10:22

    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    What does he who endureth to the end mean?

    But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.

    But he who goes through to the end will get salvation.

    But he that has endured to the end, he shall be saved.

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

    But those who stand firm to the End shall be saved.

    But he who endures to the end, the same will be saved.

    Praise God, Thank You Jesus.

  • Sheila W on Daniel 10
    Is this chapter about the endtimes or something that has already happened in history of the Israelites?
  • Rob - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    Thanks for those inspiring words friend. However, I'm looking to find the answer to why the story of Noah, Creation and Jesus birth have extremely close parallels of others, Egyptian,Sumerian, Gilgamesh earlier tales found on ancient tablets/ Rosetta stone, etc.

    I'm looking to debunk these tales specifically, and not to sound condescending but this is highly important that I get the facts over my now faith... can you help me here?
  • GOING DEEPER IN JESUS - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    In John 16, Nicodemus asked Jesus the same question.

    An authentic born again experience, means receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

    John 16 ,teaches what all that entails: what the Holy Spirits Ministry is, towards New Believers. He protects the new birth and teaches it about Jesus. You can go as deeply, as you desire the sincere milk of Gods Word (the Holy Bible). We're encouraged to desire the Meat of scripture.

    A lot of Christians just want the basic fire insurance. Enough to keep them out of hell.

    A true believer wants the Whole Life of Jesus insurance policy with all the bells and whistles. They jump in feet first, and get Jesus all over them: and want more and more. They follow Jesus and read His Word every day of their lives. They tell others about Jesus! They are excited.

    They're "all in". None of that one foot in the worldly world, and the other foot on Jesus.

    There was a great song called, Love God, Hate Sin. If we don't sink our little baby Christian roots deep into Jesus, first big wind of persecution will blow you away.

    Go look at That Godhead post I just posted. Why wouldn't you want to worship, adore and serve, those three persons who created all we see and know about? Romans 1

    If you don't read your Bible with the Holy Spirit at your elbow... the Bible is just a book that doesn't speak back to you.

    So, how deep do you want to go?

  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:7
    Know 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.

    11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    Praise God we have been washed clean by the precious blood of Jesus and are now totally sanctified, justified & redeemed because of the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 1:29-30 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. That is what Christ has done for us, in us and who we are in Jesus Christ. What Glorious Salvation.
  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:16
    What does 1 Corinthians 6:18 mean?

    In the Greco-Roman, idol-worshiping culture of Paul's day, sex of all kinds had been normalized for nearly everyone. That included prostitution, adultery, pedophilia, homosexuality, and so forth. Growing up in this environment, it's not surprising to think some of the Christians in Corinth had trouble seeing sex outside of marriage as a big deal. Paul has spent this chapter showing why avoiding sexual immorality is so essential for believers.

    Now he gives them a strategy for dealing with it: run. He tells them to flee from sexual immorality. Run away like you are escaping from something that might harm you, because it will. Even if the culture despises you for it, it's better to escape from sexual sin than to be conquered by it (Genesis 39:7-12).

    Paul shows that sexual immorality is different from other kinds of sin because it's a form of self-harm. We might commit other sins with our bodies, but sexual immorality unites us sinfully with another person. This happens on a deeply physical and spiritual level. We will experience the natural consequences of that sin at that deep level, as well.

    It's important to note that Paul did not write that sexual immorality is the worst of all sins, as we sometimes conclude. Instead, he is combatting the casual attitude toward sexual sin carried by some Christians in hyper-sexualized cultures. In addition to hurting others, sexual immorality contributes to our own deep pain. It's no more or less a sin than any other, but human cultures tend to treat it more casually than other errors. Galatians 6:7-16 King James Version (KJV) 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Now please know that I believe that every sin is forgiven by God through Jesus Christ & his atoning death on the cross. I John 1:9 KJV

    Hi Earl, looks like you were viewing that page which is why it says 'on' in your comment. So, maybe you answered your own question?
  • Earl Jackson on Ecclesiasticus 8:19
    How come King Janes bible dont have ecclesiastcus?
  • FELTON R WILSON on Hebrews 10
    Of the books of Matthew,Mark,Luke or John did any of them hear Jesus preach?
  • Bob Grove on Jude 1:14
    Jude verse 3 plainly states that the FAITH was once delivered unto the NT saints , this is the Doctrine of Christ and of the Apostles.

    Nothing more is needed .

    2 Timothy 3 . 16 Confirms this .

    My question is where is the Trinity doctrine found in the bible ?

    This is the actual teaching and importance to follow the teaching .

    Who said it in the Bible .

    Yes we know that Jesus is one with the father . As he said he came from God , the Son of God come in the flesh . and never sinned as a man . He was the first of His kind , . That's not my question.

    Thanks I will wait .

  • Rob Dorsey on Habakkuk 2
    How can I a christain know beyond any doubt the bible is nonfiction?
  • Rob Dorsey on Habakkuk 2
    Is the tale/ stories of Creation, Noah and others copied from those of earlier civilizations?
  • Part 3 NEW MOVE OF GOD - in Reply on Mark 2
    Praise and worship are key in Old Testament wars. Read over in Chronicles about King David. That's how we do it. The Holy Spirit is ready to bestow His gifts, for ministry. You have to pray, ask, And receive. Then study what that gift is for. Again.. read your Bible. Get a Strongs Concordance. It's faster.

    This is living Church outside the walls guys; gals. Our government is going to try to distract us by removing our statues (to demoralize us.) They are going to persecute the church for being resistant to gay agendas, abortion agendas, racial agendas, co-Ed school agendas: they have all these strategies to divide us and keep us in little boxes.

    These days are truly the last days. Our target is to pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send Workers into that Harvest, to COMPEL the unsaved to come to Jesus now. Before it's to late. This door of opportunity will be closed by the Rapture (caught up into the clouds). Don't get hung up on rapture not being a Bible word.

    1 Thessalonians 4:17 Is the correct name to Google. 2 Peter 3:12, BE LOOKING FOR JESUS. Stop arguing about this, ok?

    If you aren't looking up for Jesus, then you my friend are a Sadducee. They didn't believe in the Resurrection so they are "sad you see"... awaiting hell.

    Read the Gospels and memorize how Jesus taught his disciples. Google the stories of people that are evangelizing in beautiful orderly crowds; witnessing to people they meet.

    Be encouraged. You are truly seeing God do something new. If you don't sense that trumpet call in your spirit? Maybe turn off the tv and really start seeking Jesus's direction for you. If your mind feels kinda cloudy when you read the Bible, it may be hindering and harassing demons spirits. Bind them and cast them into outer darkness, in Jesus name. Keep it up till they give up and move on to something easier.

    We win! Jesus is with us. He will protect us with angelic protection. Don't focus on anything other than JESUS.

    When you are denied your expected grade in school for instance instead of credit you were given pass is it right for you to add the grade up using computer since you can defend it?
