  • Grace Mcmillan on Exodus 20
    I have a question about honoring your mother and father. I was put up for adoption as a baby. In my thirties I met my biological mom but did not have a connection with her. Do I have to have a relationship with her? Also my adoptive mom abused me physically, mentally, verbally. Am I obligated to her as well?
  • Telisha Ne39Shelle Jackson on Psalms 91
    What happens to those who live in glass houses that throw stones appose to cleaning their own flaws and sins of the world?

    Give me a scripture to not become like the evil one and to remain humble diligently seeking God and his purpouse for His Chosen Appointed and Anointed Ones. Thank You
  • Mild Bill on Psalms 11
    Jessie, "Satan will be bound up in the bottomless pit for the entire 1,000 years and no longer have any influence on the lives of people." Not quite so. Though Satan is bound, people are born sinners, as children of Adam. Sin had it's beginning with Satan. Man never returns to an innocent condition, and we know how leaven works. "The devil made me do it", has been a laughable punch line, but it hearkens back to the seriousness of the fall of man in Eden. Born dead in trespasses and sin, is the condition of all people born in the flesh. "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" = Nothing. But for the grace of God, all people go to hell.

    The Earthly kingdom of God, is what God intended for Israel, who instead wanted a man king, like the nations around them.
  • Emerson Montgomery on Matthew 7
    The meaning of the words " Anathema Maranatha "
  • Clay Flatts on Leviticus 5
    Were there other people than Adam, Eve, Cane and Abel at that time of the Bible ?

    The bible spoke of Cane being afraid to be killed by others when he was driven out, even though he was among the first set op people that the bible spoke of.

    Adam and Eve his parents and his brother Abel who he killed. there was no mention of others but yet he was afraid to be killed by others.
  • Lamech on Genesis 1
    God created man in his own image,God is a jew?
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 1
    The interpretation of Selah is not certain. We know that when it is used in the Psalter, it's often used in Psalms that are sung or in praise to God. Therefore, it can mean "to lift up or to exalt" as an ending to some declaration. Or, it could be a direction or musical notation to the singers to "pause, be silent or become louder or softer according to the musical director". So, one cannot be certain as to its meaning or even how the Jews today view that word or if they even take much notice of it in their readings.
  • JOHN on Psalms 1
    What is the meaning of the word selah in psalms?
  • Chris - in Reply on Jeremiah 7
    The mention of Queen of Heaven in Jeremiah chapters 7 & 44 refers to an Assyrian & Babylonian goddess, also known as Ashtoreth & Astarte by other groups. She was thought to the wife of the false god, Baal & women were particularly inclined towards her, as she was known to be a 'fertility goddess' as well. Sadly, Israel, who often was severely accused & punished by the True God for their embracing these false gods & goddesses, are seen here in Jeremiah actually giving much of their time & importance to this goddess, thereby bringing on God's Anger again through the prophet.

    And though Israel largely rejected such worship later on, & certainly Christians are careful not to introduce idols & worship of them into our faith, Roman Catholics still practise idolatry & venerate & worship Mary, even referring to her in one of her titles, as the "Queen of Heaven & Earth". I wonder where this belief & worship of anything else but the True God emanated from?
  • CLEANING HOUSE Matthew 12 - in Reply on Matthew 7
    PRAY AT YOUR CHURCH offices with someone, to receive the Holy Spirit; in a corporate kind of setting. Call & make an appointment.

    The Holy Spirit HELPS us to understand spiritual truth. A deaf and dumb spirit (demon) or a hindering demon may be afflicting you. They come in through "doors" we ignore.

    If anything occult in nature or questionable reside within your possessions, it gives them permission. Ask the Holy Spirit to Go through all your possessions with you. If He cringes, destroy it and get rid of it. Any books on ungodly supernatural phenomena, destroy utterly. zodiac jewelry too. Do not pawn or sell.

    Matthew 12

    43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

    44 Then he saith, I will return into my house (you) from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it (you) empty, swept, and garnished.

    45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last [state] of that man/woman/child, is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

    GARNISHED means actively, regularly, being filled up with the Word of God: the Bible. Maintaining close, daily contact with The Holy Spirit, through prayer and praise. Empty means you need to fill up on more scripture. Swept, means there may be dust curls of forgotten idols? Go thru kids things too.

    Demons produce "fruit" that reveals their names: depression, fear, torments, unclean, religious. They cannot cross the Blood of Jesus. Plead the Blood and ask God to send angels to guard the 4 corners of your home. Thank Him. You will soon be aware of peace in your home. Again, garnish your spirit. Fill it up on the power of Jesus and his Bible.

    Demons are brain damaged and keep hoping for different results. Remind them they are going to hell.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Colossians 3

    Here is my understanding of Colossians 3:5. Interesting, it says mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;

    Mortify means put to death. It means to allow the members of your body and its desires to die. Stop trying to revive them. Stop trying to reach back into the old life. You're losing desire for those old things, so let it die.

    And he gives us a list of 5 things:

    Fornication, which is sexual immorality. Uncleanness, which is all sexual impureness. Inordinate affection, which is physical passion.

    (Evil concupiscence), which means evil mental desires.

    And covetousness, which we call greed. And the word covetousness literally in the Greek means the desire to have more. Being greedy and covetous is the desire to have more than what you have.

    And notice what he calls it: which is idolatry:

    It's a form of worship and it's idolatry toward God to be greedy and have the desire to have more than what God has given you.

    Paul gives us the cause in Verse 6.

    Hope this helps!

  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 6
    Are you referring to the mentioning of 'beasts' in the Book of Revelation?

    If so, we start to read about these 'beasts', otherwise translated from the Greek, as living creatures, in Revelation chapter 4:6. You can read about their description from that verse onwards, but they seem to be located in "the midst & round about the Throne of God", signifying a very real part of the Presence & Holiness of God. Of course, the Apostle John could not see God, as no human can do, so all these visions that John received, were to show him something of the beings & activity in Heaven - and that all there, are in constant worship of the One Who lives eternally & to fulfil His Plans for the World. These 'beasts' are not angels & they are also distinct from the other beings that are in Heaven & that surround the Throne of God.
  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 6:23
    I enjoyed reading your comments & response & do agree with what you've written. Though, I had to spend a little time considering your understanding of "Lordship Salvation". As much as I detest such categories, I realize that these terms are necessary for an understanding of a person's position without the need to detail all the beliefs that come under its umbrella.

    After reading more about Lordship Salvation (LS), I actually seem to agree with it, when one considers its antithesis, "Easy Believism", which I certainly don't espouse to. You wrote that LS, as you've recently learned, is heresy. You also wrote about it: "Our attempts at obeying God don't save us from sin! Nor do they "keep" us saved or "maintain" our salvation. (& disobedience, after being saved, doesn't cause us to lose our salvation.)." Forgive my ignorance, but does LS actually infer that obedience to God saves us/keeps us saved from sin, likewise, disobedience causes loss of salvation?

    I couldn't find the above claims by those proponents of LS, rather that it is a correct understanding of Scripture, to indicate that a person truly saved by the Blood of Christ & reborn, will in all seriousness & compulsion, want to live for the One Who purchased him & be His disciple in all areas of life. There will be times of falling into sin, not unrestrained sin of course, but the Spirit within will immediately impress conviction, with great spiritual discomfort & a requirement to seek forgiveness & change. If he should neglect this & continue to persist in disobedience, then his testimony before the Lord might seem hypocritical to us, but ultimately to be judged & dealt with by the Lord & not us.

    So, what I'm saying, is that I agree with you, it's just that I'm unaware of LS propagating a teaching of 'salvation through Christ & the keeping of the Law'. Of course, I have other views of the application of the Law in the life of the believer in Christ: but that's another matter for another time. Blessings.
  • Susie Ridgley on Psalms 1
    Whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. When you pray, forgive. Have faith in God. You can speak to the mountain and tell it to move. Don't doubt in your heart, but believe that those things you ask for will come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith (Mark 11:23-26). God's word is filled with great and precious promises.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Revelation 7:9
    1 Thessalonians Chapter 4 is one place you will find it. But, you will not find the word "rapture" in your English Bible. The word rapture comes from the Latin word Raptus. The original language (Greek) uses the word harpadzo which is basically the same thing. So whether you use the word rapture, raptus, or harpadzo, they all mean the same thing, to be "caught up" or seized by force. And that is what is found in 1 Thessalonians Chapter 4.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Proverbs 18:22
    1 Timothy Chapter 5, Verses 17 & 18:

    Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, that is, acknowledge that, especially the ones who labor in the word and doctrine, or teaching. For the scripture says, and there are two pieces of scripture here that Paul uses to back it up.

    First of all, Deuteronomy Chapter 25 Verse 4: He says thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treads out the corn.

    In 1 Corinthians Chapter 9, Paul says, "You don't think that God was talking about oxen do you?" If you have oxen treading the corn, you got to feed the oxen too, or else he's not going to be around to tread the corn for you.

    The second scripture is Luke 10:7. The words of Jesus, The laborer is worthy of his reward, or hire.

    So acknowledge those who labor in the word, and in doctrine, and make sure that they're taken care of.

  • Angela Smith - in Reply on Matthew 16
    As far as interpreting Scriptures, prayer is always a good idea first so you don't "miss it", "it" meaning the meat or manna that'll fatten up and edify your spiritual man. Also praying in The Spirit/stammering lips/speaking in tongues, ushers in The Holy Ghost so you can interpret The Word in a spiritual way instead of in a fleshly way. That is why (in my experience) The Gift of Tongues was the first as evidence that you had/have The Holy Ghost because as you speak in tongues, you can feel the Holy Ghost fall on you with such a sweet quickening, with a curious yearn for more of an intimate relationship with The Father, who can then bless you with more of The 9 spiritual gifts. The Gift of knowledge and wisdom (God will open up and give you a peak at the most mind blowing beautiful awe inspiring knowledge that pertains to what you or whomever The Lord wishes you to minister to, with the Wisdom of when to use it and/or to whom to share it with, so that they too may become blessed and a walking blessing) if it doesn't witness with you now, it may not be what you need as an answer right now. But debating Scriptures, will only bring strife/distance someone that may have been on the precipice of giving all to God but was turned off by a debating battering spirit. Yes we are to gather together & reason one to another, but as I read a few of these thread comments, its reading like a political "I'm right you're wrong" type page, we're speaking of the most sacred of sacred and are blessed enough to even get a glimpse of such artistry/strength/healing/beautiful poetry that IS ALIVE! That is exactly why you shouldn't minister to anyone who doesn't want to hear it. "don't cast your pearls among the swine", what are pearls? The Word, who are the swine? foolish scoffers. I was blessed with The Holy Ghost at 8 with a vision of red ribbons blowing out of my mouth into the wind as The Tongues burst out of my mouth, felt like I was going to die if I kept my mouth closed.

    "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23

    I hope I'm not misunderstanding you, & please forgive me if I am. But the Bible states otherwise than your overall message.

    While it's true that many church institutions (& traditions) teach lies, & while it's true that nobody who lives in (I guess you mean habitual) sin is free from sin, not one of us is, has been, or ever will be able, in this life, to be free from sin by trying to obey all of God's laws.

    It's impossible for us to do this perfectly, 100% of the time, & under or in any & all circumstances! That's why Jesus Christ did it for us instead, praise Him!

    I once thought Lordship Salvation (which your message seems to espouse) was correct, but recently I (& others) have learned that it's a heresy.

    Our attempts at obeying God don't save us from sin! Nor do they "keep" us saved or "maintain" our salvation. (& disobedience, after being saved, doesn't cause us to lose our salvation.)

    Repentance is important in salvation & for sanctification, but repentance (or anyone/thing else, includ. the keeping of the Law) isn't the Savior, the Son of God is.

    Jesus Christ is the only one who kept the Law perfectly & was, is, & will always be sinless; He is our perfect & complete sacrifice for our sins!

    I pray that you & others would see this truth! It isn't right that anyone should be held in bondage to this legalistic, joy-destroying, Christ-depreciating false gospel.

  • Mild Bill on Psalms 10
    Kercelia, "What On Earth Is God Doing?",by Dr. Renald Showers puts the political happenings on Earth into a spiritual context. Or, you can simply read the last chapter of Revelation, where it clearly states, God is the victor. We may know what God is doing, however, we spend our time here guessing when and why. It is the pride of man to funnel God into man's way of thinking. Despite the world around us, we need to trust and take comfort in having been told, " I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee"(Hebrews13:5), by our Lord, who supersedes any earthly ruler/power.
