  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Genesis 2
    Hello Janoyce,

    Just to expand a little more to the truth S Spencer shared with you. As recently someone had a question similar to yours. The Love of God, Jesus Christ, is beyond what we can imagine. What I perceive as more important to ask is "do I love Jesus Christ"?

    God is Holy and hates sin. To repent from the sins of this world, giving your life to Him, and live to do His Will is very important. I will just leave a couple Scriptures for you showing how important it is for us to love Him with all our heart, soul, and mind. Our love for Him shall not be forgotten.

    Deuteronomy 7:9, Deuteronomy 10:12-13, Psalms 31:23, Psalms 97:10, Psalms 145:20, Proverbs 8:17, John 14:21,

    James 1:12, James 2:5,

    God Bless.

    Where in the Bible does Jesus perform an exorcism

    Dahg,

    Thank you so much for pointing that out. I know very little Hebrew so I did learn some as I did a little research on the Hebrew meaning of Har. As you mentioned, it does refer to either a mountain or a hill, not a valley. I also understand that the battle of Armageddon will take place in the valley of Meggido. Surrounding this valley is a group of small hills. Many OT battles took place in this same valley.

    I would be interested in you sharing more on this if you wish to. Mainly, is there an actual mountain called Mt. Megiddo?

    Thanks again for the clarification!

    read this Isaiah 14:9-15 (KJV)

    [9] Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. [10] All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? [11] Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. [12] How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! [13] For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: [14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. [15] Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

    wow, that is a tough question? there is Jealousy in God therefore I would say that there is Jealously in heaven. King James Bible Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; New King James Version you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.

    Who are the Woman and Child in Revelation 12? I think the Child could represent Israel, but not sure who the Woman represents.

  • Eric Lopez on 1 Kings 16
    These Kings overtake one another for doing wrong/evil only for them to end up doing the same thing? Is it power and money that corrupts them?
  • Eric Lopez on 1 Kings 15
    Why did Israel question the false King Absalom and made King Solomon his brother King for his righteousness yet Israel allowed Rehoboam do sinful things? Generation gap? It's sad to see this pattern of good vs evil in generations of Kings.

    Curious to read on if Asa overtakes Bahaah King of Israel and restore all 12 tribes as one and follow the God again.
  • Devin Kusicki on 2 Samuel 6:21
    Even though All things that God creates have a choice, how did Lucifer (Satan) become jealous of god when there is no evil in heaven?

  • LACEy on Matthew 1:1
    I feel like i have a lot in common with Jesus. A lot of similarities. Does the Bible ever mention about Jesus having any romantic relationship? Or even a desire to have a romantic relationship? I've always felt different. I've never desired any romantic relationship. But I've always loved to take care of animals. Jesus loves to take care of us. I've had jobs working with animals. Then i started to see the Bible verse :Jeremiah 29:11. I thought that was god 's way of telling me that his plan for my life was to have a lifelong career working with animals. But those jobs did not last as long as I'd hoped. It felt like a peice of myself was missing. Then during this corona virus i started to write in my journal about my personal experiences. Through the process, i realized that i was answering a lot of questions I've had about myself all my life. Finally i understood me & i realized that maybe this was god's plan for me all along. His plan was for me to seek out personal information about myself. It reminds me of another Bible verse :Matthew 7:7. And that's exactly what is been doing. I was seeking out information to understand what makes me different. I was asking personal questions about myself because I'd rather understand, instead of doubt & the door was opened wide for me to see the answers to those questions. My prayer is that my story can help anyone else who feels different. Its OK to be different no matter what & it's healthy to accept yourself!

    Gary,

    It can be called either New Testament or New Covenant. I call it the New Testament but it would not be wrong for me to call it the New Covenant. There are several places in the "NT" where we see the word covenant and testament. Both those words in the Greek text are the words DIATHEKE, and they can be translated into English as either testament or covenant. They both mean the same thing, so it would not be wrong to call it either way!
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 2 Timothy 3
    Hello Daniel,

    Is this my brother in Sverige?

    Either way.Of coarse there are slight changes here and there, in the Scriptures, as it is interpreted. As you know it is still the living Word of God. I myself was lead to Jesus Christ from some new "translation" of the Holy Bible. It still lead me to the Lord who is the way the, the truth, and the life.

    I think judging can be perceived two ways. One is to judge someone and think "that's it, no hope for him" and curse them. The other is to judge what is right from wrong, truth from lies, and try to help others by telling them their faults. Now of coarse don't be a hypocrite and tell someone not to do something you also do. Of coarse the one Judge over all is Jesus Christ and we are all to be judged, by what we have done, in the end. Though we who follow Jesus Christ are the body of Christ. As He uses us as He pleases to do His Will.

    About this life. A simple view is that this life is God's field and it is a place for testing of hearts and souls. Given in many parables by the Lord. The entire reason why God made us to live here, and whatnot, only God can answer. As it is probably not to be known while we are here. It is God's Will that shall be done not ours.

    Here are some verses for you, about "judging" others. Not condemning others. To help them if able, not to curse them. Are we not to know, or judge, even a false prophet by their fruits? A tree is known by it's fruit.

  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Hello Denise. In the 'ideal' situation, where both husband & wife are mature & responsible people, hold joint financial accounts, are transparent in their financial dealings, & as a first course of action, given to discuss such matters & their possible ramifications to remaining resources, I agree, that they both should discuss it & make a joint agreed decision on such a large expense.

    Quite often though, one spouse may not be quite 'savvy' in financial matters & would entrust that responsibility to the other spouse, which could work out well. And I suppose, when you write, 'a substantial amount of money', that could be in reference to the money you already have available, whether a large or small amount. If your husband is refusing to discuss this matter with you, is he prone to making other decisions without your knowledge or involvement? Are his financial decisions leaving you & your family in hardship? You may then need to get other help if he is agreeable & prepared to go that route. I know of couples who have been forced to hold separate secret bank accounts, simply to preserve funds so that the other spouse can't get access to them & destroy their livelihood. But this hopefully, is not your situation.

    I always discuss all important, out of the ordinary, financial matters with my wife - I believe that is the correct, prudent & loving way to deal with it & all matters that require mutual consideration & consent.

    Hi Lacey,

    We are to restore one another, and

    We keep ministering to the lost, we are to be the light to tge world and you let your light shine with your walk, the word and much prayer.

    Here is a few scriptures may help ,

    Isaiah 55:11. So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

    ""WE trust and believe in the power of God's word ""

    James 5:19-20. Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;

    Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

    The bible tells us not to condemn, BUT IT DOESN'T SAY NOT TO JUDGE,

    How do you try to help someone if you can't speak against what they're doing wrong?

    Consider Galatians 6:1 When ministering.

    Galatians 6:1. Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    Galatians 6:8-9. 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.

    And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

    2 Timothy 4:2. Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

    Your walk going forward is important, be sure there is nothing present n your life they can use against you,

    Don't let no one preach to you God is Love and sin don't matter!!

    God's word is important, prayer is important, Be consistent in all 3,

    your blameless walk,

    The word of God

    And prayer.

    God bless you.

    Hi Nehemiah, the Bible as we have it, doesn't speak of those silent years between the Testaments. We would have to look at history to see what took place at that time, & specifically about the Medo-Persian & Roman Empires and their influence in the world, especially in Palestine. It would be best, if you're interested in that history, to read about it rather than my sharing it here in precis form. You can check it out at this very good Site, which gives a full, informative & easy to read account: templemount dot org. Go to the Reference Links at the bottom of the page & click on 'The 400 Years between the Hebrew & Christian Scriptures by Ray Stedman'.

    However, during those silent years, from between 200 BC & 400 AD, several writings appeared what we now refer to as the Apocryphal Books. They received a mixed reception, some believing that they were vital information to be included with the rest of Scripture, to others believing that under various tests, those writings proved to be uninspired & contained inaccuracies. So they were not included in the Canon of Scripture we have now in the KJV.

    When you read of the plight of the Jews during those silent years & what they suffered under the hands of those Empires, they too must have wondered, 'why was God keeping quiet & not dealing with the enemy, to bring His promised Saviour to us to defeat them'. But God's Word says, "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons." Galatians 4:4,5. At the appointed time, God did move - not for a physical salvation from the human enemy, but a spiritual salvation from the unseen wicked enemy of our souls. God was no more silent. But now after 2000 years, the same question is asked by some, "where is God in our sufferings?" "When will He come to remove us?" When the fulness of (God's) time is come, Jesus WILL come again.
  • Rev Dr Duane A Martin DD on 2 Chronicles 5:13
    This passage is much more than ironic but a perfect typology of the 2nd Chapter of Acts. None were asking for things but their soul purpose was to glorify God. Though it is not wrong to pray for healing, financial blessings, and other needs, when we focus on Glorifying God from the beginning, before going into the mode of asking, we are inviting the presence of God first and foremost. Let's stop being selfish with what we want and do what God wants, the praise and worship that He, and He alone is due. You will then find that God is more than willing to satisfy your needs.

    Enter His courts with prayer requests? No, "Enter his courts with Praise and Thanksgiving," and "In all things give thanks for this is the will of God concerning you." "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me." This is the apex of drawing the presence of God where we may abide in. It becomes crucial for revival.
  • Nehemiah Irby on Luke 24
    does the bible say anything about the silent years between the old and the new testament. was God silent for 400 years?
