  • Luke - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    Its because they like to ignore these little nuggets from 1 Corinthians 14

    36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

    37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

    They conveniently look over where Paul says everything he wrote are commandments from God and that God told Paul what to write.

  • Terry Sebren on Luke 15:10
    Do our loved ones who have passed away visit us?
  • Stephende on Hebrews 8
    Why is it that what God, the God of Israel, has ministered to in the desert should wax old. As is the fact of today that the people lose faith and fall away, the same was true with Israel. Only Caleb and Joshua would reach the promised land! Not even Moses, who mistrusted the word of El Shaddai at Merabah. God said" Command the Water to flow from the rock! Moses used his staff, tapping it twice. Did Jesus doubt in the Garden prior to his execution? With tears and trembling he did because he was human. Yes human, with all it's correlating doubts and fears. I'm not a Jesus follower but his appearing and reappearing was a wonder. However, his doctrine wasn't written, but recorded from memory many years later. I'm basically bitter with Christianity for all its hycoprisy and politcal dalliences in these most ruinous times. Old weeping entrepreneurs are the messangers. Franklin Graham is so deep into Trump that some consider the lying psychopath of a president a prophet! Get it right, ye Christians. The truth is available only to those who thirst after it!
  • Greg - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    Carleton,

    I agree that we as believers can freely rest and be justified in God's commandments and enter into the Rest that is given through the grace of Jesus Christ.

    You say "Jesus came to fulfill the commandments"?

    I disagree.

    Jesus came to fulfill the "law" (Luke 24:44).

    One "jot"or one tittle" of the LAW will not pass until ALL is fulfilled (Matthew 5:18)

    These are powerful words from Jesus that should not be dismissed or overlooked. ALL has not been fulfilled yet, therefore the LAW still stands.

    Love is the fulfilling of the LAW (Romans 13:10)

    That means that the LAW is still in effect.

    Only ONE person that ever walked the earth did not NEED the LAW.

    The rest of us need repentance every day, because we break the law every day.

    The death and resurrection of Jesus fulfilled blood and other certain ORDINANCES of the Law, but did not abolish the LAW itself.

    How can we "rest" in His commandments when we break them?

    Our rest comes through faith in our repentance and His promise of forgiveness and a new standing in Him from that.
  • Millard Lewis Powers - in Reply on Job 42:6
    We are all God's possessions, and I, for one, am glad to be such. He is not morally deficient and could never be so, unlike slave owners. God takes care of his possessions just like I take care of my tractor, only better than I ever could.

    Even the pure in heart can do better, at times. If you go back to Job 32 and read to the end of Job 37, Elihu explains why Job needs to repent. He says that Job justified himself rather than God.

    Now, Elihu was not one of Job's three friends who had come to visit him, but he was there and had listened patiently to the discussion between them and Job. Notice that when God rebukes Job and his three friends, he DOESN'T rebuke Elihu. Elihu is the ONLY ONE who escapes God's rebuke. So read those six chapters where he speaks for enlightenment about why Job should have repented.
  • Millard Lewis Powers - in Reply on 2 Samuel 3:2
    No. He wasn't. In fact, he said in 2 Samuel 11:8, "and I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given thee such and such things."

    In the very next verse, he makes it very clear that he was angry because David had "despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight" by having Uriah killed and taking his wife. This was the word of the LORD spoken by Nathan the prophet. But he probably wasn't too happy about David's committing adultery with her before that, either.

    Neither the LORD (God, the Father) nor Jesus EVER condemned any man at any time for having more than one wife, although I'm sure there were plenty around that did, even in the time of Jesus. There are still polygamous marriages in some countries even today.

    What Jesus said was that if a man put one wife away (divorced her) to marry another, except if she had committed fornication, he was guilty of adultery and causing her and any future husband she might have to commit adultery. You have to read all accounts of his discourse on divorce to see that he's talking about putting her away in order to marry another. These are found in Matthew 5:31&32, Matthew 19:9, Mark 10:11&12, and Luke 16:18. So we see that, if a man had five wives, he was okay, but he could not put one away so that he could marry another. Perhaps this meant so he could afford to marry another. I don't know. But he could put her away for fornication. Why didn't he say adultery? Because adultery carried an automatic death sentence in those days. No divorce was necessary.

    Too, Mark 10:12 shows that a woman could also put away her husband, but was under the same rules as the man pertaining to divorce.
  • Millard Lewis Powers - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    It means that each day, we have enough to handle without taking on the problems of tomorrow or some other day. Therefore, we should live in the day we are in, because we cannot live in tomorrow until it gets here.
  • Lewis Talley - in Reply on Proverbs 11:26
    Your nephew is right that there's nothing in the Bible about marrying outside your race. However, the OT does count. He's wrong about that. How many times does Jesus say, "It is written . . ." or "It has been said . . ."? Ok. Just where was it written? In the Old Testament, of course! If Jesus thinks it counts, trust me, it counts.

    Now, on the racial question, Miriam objected to the race of Moses' wife, and God made her (Miriam) white as snow -- with leprosy! The children of Israel were instructed not to take wives from or give wives to the heathen people around them, but there was no racial specification given whereby they were to determine who was heathen and who was not. Nor was there a "heathen patent" issued to any particular race. You were free to be a heathen, regardless of your race, as long as you weren't one of the children of Israel.

    The children of Israel were also commanded by Moses not to make intertribal marriages within the tribes of Israel, so that their inheritances would not move from tribe to tribe. There was nothing racist about that.

    I'm almost done with my eighth study of the Bible, and, to my knowledge, there's nothing about staying within your RACE in it.
  • The Five Fold Ministry and Jesus39s Resurrection Morning - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Calm down. Jesus was speaking to his disciple who had been a fisherman by occupation.

    Jesus invited him to be shown how to "fish" for peoples souls.

    The word Apostle means, one who has seen the person of Jesus Christ; the Son of Man.

    The office of an Apostle, works as touching the 5-fold Ministry of: Apostle, prophet, teacher, pastor, evangelist. Also, someone once said to me that 'pastor' is positioned on the ring finger because it involves full time shepherding of Jesus's sheep and baby lambs.

    If you open your hand: the thumb is the apostle. Using the thumb it can reach out and touch each of the other 4 fingers.

    The Apostle can minister in any of the other offices.

    My take: Jesus would like us to be versatile by nature. He had to do it this way because someone is always going to bark, "That's Not My Job!."

    We are all called to follow Jesus and DO the work of an evangelist.

    Personally: I don't have cable and I watch very little television. My computer is 1 year old and hasn't been used yet. I have an unproven theory that if we watch too much tv, our rears rebel and move around to the front. :D

    I'm just saying we have time to read the Bible. It goes much faster if you'll buy a Strongs concordance; a commentary; maybe a dictionary. How's your Bible appetite?

    I love Jesus! First time I saw that he evaded Satan all over the place and Satan could only focus on murdering the Son of God! Satan forgot all about Genesis 3:14-15 prophesy. When that spear cut into Jesus's side, He had already died. Satan didn't get to cheer :( Then when Jesus came walking out of the tomb: He bruised Satans head (I hope he knocked him out) and Jesus took the Keys and went to hell, preached salvation, opened the cells and led everybody in there out, in the streets and into Paradise. He then met up with both Marys because they were over at the Empty Tomb.

    This is the Mighty Son of God that we worship! He is worthy to be praised & adored.

  • Mishael on who identified Jesus as the Son of God - in Reply on John 1:49
    We can't really know who said it first because of the time issue between the 2 Chapters:

    Matthew 16:16. Peter

    John 1:49. Nathaniel

    I think you made a good catch. The only problem is that Nathanel was not one of the 12 Disciples.

    Comments anyone else?
  • Leuisil Misilei Mataia on Matthew 24:40
    I am so thankful that Jesus Himself said that there would be a rapture of His Church as in John Chapter 14:1-3 V3b I will come back and take you to myself, so that you will be where I am. Where Jesus will get His pride from and take it to where? It is from here on earth to heaven. God placed Noah and his family in the boat leaving the bads behind. The angels took Lot and his family out of Sodom and left the bad people behind. Israel was safe and Secure in Goshen while all Egyptians faced the all plagues. So here we come to Matthew 24:40-42, Two men working in the field, one will be taken away, the other will be left behind. Two women will be at a mill grinding meal, one will be taken away another will be left behind. Those people were working on the earth, At the time of blessed hope mentioned by apostle Paul, or rapture, all the believers will be caught up forcibly as fast as the twinkling of the eye to meet their Lord and Savior in the air . Then Jesus Christ took His Pride, the Church to be with Him until the time He will come with them to establish Thousand Years Kingdom.
  • Wanda Wheat - in Reply on Proverbs 11:26
    My nephew is trying to say that it is no where in the Bible about dating outside your race. Our family is not racist nor are we against the African Americans. We are trying to get him to understand that it is in the Bible and he argues that the Old Testament doesn't count. Can you please help me with this?
  • T - in Reply on Proverbs 11:26
    Wanda,

    I would love to help.

    Before I reference the laws within the Old Testament may I sincerely inquire why you ask this question?

    Thanks
  • Alfonso on John 1:49
    I was always under the impression that Peter was the first to believe Jesus was the Messiah/Son of God. (Matthew 16:16). Who is Nathanael and was he the first person to acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God/King of Israel? Thank you.
  • Wanda Wheat on Proverbs 11:26
    Where in the KJV does it state about staying with our race?
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    While we are called to be followers of Christ, We will find that the world does not except this value of faith toward God.Is it possible to have joy and happiness and be a christian in the strictest sense?I believe that God wants all people to experience the joy found in life and the love we share with one another.It has been my experience that when we live outside the faith, time of temptation and sorrow manifest itself, and will dominate and move us further away from His love!Are we looking somewhere else for happiness or do we worry about things we have no control over!When we examine Christs life, we will see a love that passes understanding!His love for his Father, and the joy he experienced when He did the will of His Father, even the power to heal Gods children!We to can experience this same love when we worship the savior!I personally would find no greater joy than to heal someone or give someone hope.Mans nature is contrary to God, and is evil from the beginning. This is why we need to abide in Christ, being led by His Holy Spirit. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

    Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all LIARS shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    Why all the questions about demons?

    If you are wanting to be set free from demonic capture, let someone know.

  • Melchizedek - in Reply on Hebrews 7
    This what the Commentary writes:

    7:11 The apostle now demonstrates that the Levitical priesthood must yield to the priesthood of Christ, because Melchizedek , after whose order he is a priest, Is opposed to Aaron, #Hebrews 7:11 |- 14. Hath no end of life, #Hebrews 7:15 |- 19, but remaineth a priest continually. If now perfection were by the Levitical priesthood - If this perfectly answered all God's designs and man's wants For under it the people received the law - Whence some might infer, that perfection was by that priesthood. What farther need was there, that another priest - Of a new order, should be set up? From this single consideration it is plain, that both the priesthood and the law, which were inseparably connected, were now to give way to a better priesthood and more excellent dispensation.

    Comment:There are many scriptures on Melchizedek. His Priesthood was superior to the Aaronic Priesthood.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Brenda,

    Matthew 6:34 says to take no thought about tomorrow. There is a word used throughout the New Testament that has to do with our minds being distracted. It is the word MERIMNAO, and it has to do with the occupation of the attention of our minds. It can be anything, our jobs, our family, hobbies, or anything in our daily lives that keep our minds occupied and away from the things of the Lord.

    Jesus says don't even worry about it. Don't worry about tomorrow. Let tomorrow take care of itself. Where is our focus right now? And then He says "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

    What this is basically telling us is that we have enough to be concerned with today, the normal ordinary stresses of life. We're not to be concerned about tomorrow. Only the Lord knows what will come tomorrow, so why should we be worried about it. Besides, worrying about tomorrow does us no good at all. We are to place our complete trust in Christ, and trust that He will work out those future things that we are incapable of knowing. So, sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof simple means to just focus on the hardships of the present day and trust that Christ will not only work those things out but also the things of tomorrow.

  • Stephende on Hebrews 7
    Melchisidec, the King of peace: who was he? An apparition or manifestation? God, is not divided into 3 parts! Likewise, El Shaddai, the God of Israel is not limited to celestial places. As a God of mercy, He manifests where He feels like, To Moses, to Abraham, to Jacob, in dreams, to Jesus, His Faithful, to Paul on the road to Damascus, to Ishmael. He, the God of creation, will have His doubters in derision!
  • How Satan lost the Keys to Jesus - in Reply on John 3
    Very briefly: When Adam sinned by eating the fruit and was banned from the Garden; he lost the mandate that he had been charged with by God. Satan stole the keys.

    You see satan in Job 1, bragging.

    When Jesus came out of the grave, He went and got the keys back from Satan. He preached to the captives in hell and led them all out; took them through the streets so all could see.

    Revelation 1:18

    I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    I don't call that mocking. You did, didn't you? Mocking and accusing is a fruit: attributes of Satan. Exactly like what he was doing in Job 1.

    Jesus legally took all that power away from Satan when He went to the Cross. John 3:16 < link

    Satan didn't know what was really happening or he would have stopped the trial and the crucifixion. He didn't read the scrolls that were being written. He must've forgotten about the prophesy God spoke to him in Genesis 3:14-15. Hebrews 2:14

    Romans 16:20, 1 John 3:8

    His time is short and he knows he is going to be cast into hell. That's why there is so much spiritual warfare in our world now.

    Ephesians 6. Satan is sending his evil angels out into the world to kill as many humans as he can by accident, illness, pandemics, depression, suicide, drugs and alcohol; even riots in streets = where demons will seek to enter inside of unaware humans.

    2 Timothy 3:13, evil will wax worse and worse!! It's not ever going to go back to normal.

    After the Rapture (Caught Up), it will be this bad times 10. After Antichrist finishes pretending to be Mr. Fix-Everything that's wrong with the world ....all hell will break loose on earth. All prophesy.

    You should switch sides now and hang with Jesus. He's going to be moving real fast.

    Mishael
  • Luke Cage - in Reply on John 3
    "Jesus preached to the Fallen angels Locked up in Tartarus, and led a procession of old Testament Saints from Paradise where Satan held them and took them to Heaven."

    Could you please elaborate on this? I had heard that Jesus did go to Hell and did what? Mocked the fallen angels? What do you mean that Satan held Old Testament saints in paradise?
  • Linda Covington on 1 Kings 22:23
    Did God send a lying spirit from heaven
  • George Godas on Job 42:6
    Job had heard about God and did not experience God himself. But if, as he says, he is now seeing God, then he must be pure of heart (for they are the ones who see God. So, if he is pure of heart, what is the point of repenting? Also, it seems to me that God may be looking at everything that he created as possessions, including Job. But if Job is a possession, this puts God in a morally deficient mode (not without arrogance). Your thoughts?
  • A Bible believer - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Isnt the Holy Spirit and God and Jesus one? Didnt Jesus said out of his own lips "I and the Father are one"?
