  • PART ONE THE HOLY SPIRITS GIFTS - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    Acts Chapter 10

    44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on ALL of them which heard the word.

    45 And they of the circumcision (the JEWS), which BELIEVED were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles ALSO was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    46 For they heard them speak with TONGUES and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

    47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

    Truth is that THE HOLY SPIRIT has gifts; that we can ask for and receive. Get knowledge in 1 Corinthians chapters 12-14.

    Generally speaking, people who are not sure about it, and do not have all the scripture laid down within; are sometimes afraid, the whole experience is daunting.

    Tongues can be different: some speak another language, some people groan loudly: some speak as the Holy Spirit gives you an utterance. If it's prophetic, there will be 2-3 other prophets in the house who will know if that Word is from God, or out of a persons flesh. If there are no prophetically gifted people in the service; there will be no interpretation of the tongue. All must be done IN ORDER.

    Just sitting in your prayer closet, praying in tongues makes no sense to your conscious mind, BUT does edify your own spirit. All the fatigue of all kinds drains away and then you feel energized. Angels harken to the Word of God, spoken.

    I pray in tongues in my car, because people drive suicidal or homicidal. I drive with the angels. :D

    It's not going to make sense to your brain (soul). It is your spirit that is being built up. Read all scripture on this. When you are positive this comes through the Holy Spirit that in-dwells within yourself spirit; you will someday ask the Holy Spirit for His gift, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It will happen when you are praying or quietly reading the Corinthian chapters I mentioned. Just be open to the Holy Spirit. :)
  • PART TWOA RHEMA WORD FROM GOD - in Reply on Acts 2:41
    Rhema is the word of God spoken to your spirit, quickened to your soul. The word that is hot and relevant to your current situation and condition. Rhema is personal and effective, it comes from the depth of God's heart, His spirit into your heart & your spirit. It imparts vigor, energy, strength, power, passion and fervency to you.

    All the Old Testament prophets received Rhema from God which made a way for them in the spiritual wilderness. Elijah received a Rhema word from God which not only fed him in famine but saved the life of the widow and her son; gave them a continual supply of food when all around them was in draught.

    His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones Jeremiah 20:9

    Rhema cries out to you, loud and clear.

    When you are reading your Bible, a scripture jumps out of the page to speak to you, or a verse highlighted by the Holy Spirit to enlighten and direct your path. Whatever God tells you to do, He will equip you to do it; wherever God tells you to go, He will prepare for you the way to get there.

    The fellowship with God in His Word is vital. The fire, the fervency, the calling comes when you fellowship with God in His Word. For you are face to face with Jesus!

    Revelation of John 19:13: and his name is called The Word of God.

    The Word imparts vision to you. You become a fired up, proactive, purposeful, God-sent person. Gone are the days of laziness, inactivity and boredom. Your life is no longer "a waste of time"! You become focused, organized and purposeful.

    A lot of people out there find life so boring that they have to resort to drugs, alcohol, loud music etc to give them a high; but then when the illusion is gone, they are left worse than before. A person who suffers from depression swings between highs and lows. why? It's because they are not living a "real life", the God given life in Christ Jesus!

    There is life in the Word, it is the life of God, the God kind of life.

  • Paul Bennett on Acts 2:41
    What actually is the true meaning of "praying in tongues? Is it praying in actual known languages that you yourself have not been taught, or in a language that no one understands except by interpretation given by God?

  • T - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Will

    I see that when you first approach someone you will "attack" using bold statements through personal words. When you are asked questions about your response you will grab any "relevant" scripture you can find and post it. You won't use your own words to give an answer in response. This means one thing.. your heart is hardened and biased. You seem to come in here to confront and cause abrasion. I believe you know this.

    Since you won't respond heres but one scripture I will give you, sir;

    Galatians 3:26. What does that scripture mean to you? Not my words, it is directly from THE word.

    I pray for you to find peace within your heart and to overcome whatever spirit is causing abrasion and separation in your thoughts.

    God Bless
  • Wenmar - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Flossy Ann, Life is hard....take it one day (or even one hour) at a time. You are correct in wanting believers to pray for you. Over 20 years ago I woke up one day with a terrible hangover and worse...a feeling that I may have hurt someone (verbally) with my drunken behavior. When I asked this person he said "What are you talking about? You were hilarious last night.", but there was a feeling of shame that I couldn't stand.

    While I wasn't an alcoholic in the usual sense, I had been out carousing for 20 straight nights. And this was a pattern for about 15 years. And often I had feelings of worthlessness so I did abuse alcohol and this constant carousing to "feel good"..but it was a fakeout, a counterfeit!

    That morning, before I lifted my aching head from the pillow, I called out to God, whom I did not know personally, and gave him control of my life and just said " I don't want to feel like this anymore!!" No, it wasn't instantaneous but before I knew it I had lost my desire for this lifestyle and began getting to know my savior. I praise God that he delivered me from that life. And more importantly...to know my savior personally and to know that I will live in His kingdom with Him eternally!!! Unspeakable joy! Stay in the Word and keep praying!!!
  • Joseph Burger - in Reply on Genesis 1:27
    My question referred to Genesis 2v20.

    Meaning of "suitable helper" in that sentence.

    Does that mean (God) had a choice to choose from "other " women as helper or wife?
  • Growing Closer to Your Father - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    You read His Word, with new born again eyes. To see His love unfolded throughout our history with Him.

    To run the limits of wickedness until in agony of soul we bow our knee and ask Him to come in and help us finally. And He does.

    I had to become very old to hear a Fathers heart poured out in the Book of Lamentations. His sorrow over a nation and a people who would stubbornly reject Him time and time again. The pure pressure of Gods heart would almost make my heart implode, because me and people He loved would just wander away.

    How could we be such rockheads? And yet every time we turn and mourn the sins we did that drove us away from Him, is what drives us back into fellowship with Him.

    He is so Holy, He cannot look upon sin; or hasten to us. He had to give His very own Son, to mediate for us. A Son that was willing to show us what Father is like.

    How, please tell me how can we just step over that, and ask unfeeling questions like: is inter-racial marriage ok?

    And then you want someone else to search the Bible for you .... because you don't search the scriptures yourself.

    God used to spend the early evenings, walking with and talking with Adam. He still does that With people who have their hearing tuned in, by way of The Holy Spirit.

    You can have that relationship that you truly want, but are afraid to lean into and make it happen. Turn the sounds of the world OFF, sit in the floor by your bed, still your mind, listen. Pray what is on your mind. Listen.

    Sing something your spirit loves. I sing an old song named: and He walks with me and He talks with me, and tells me that I'm His own.... Other days I may cry. Why? Because God the Father is what the heart longs to know. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father; and you can sit and ask Him to pray for people who desperately need Him now. Like: remember my brother in your prayers, for he needs a miracle in his relationships with those that love him and want him to be saved.
  • David - in Reply on John 3:16
    "At Calvary, the water poured from his side and intermingled with his blood and washed our sins away by faith in our repentance looking from up from the wilderness to his healing by repentance. The full result is His Spirit entered into our earthly tabernacle and filled us with peace and understanding."

    ??????? eh? Sir, the pasting together of partial Scriptures and concepts in an attempt to create your own Gospel is what Paul warned of in the opening of Galatians... twice. If you want an UNDENIABLE EXPERIENCE with God, and receive the REAL Holy Spirit the way they did in Acts, then OBEY THE GOSPEL that is confirmed by the Apostles in the Book of Acts. Only then will you really see what your relationship with the Lord can be!

    If you want Biblical results, do Biblical things in Biblical ways. :) Hope this helps!
  • Carleton - in Reply on John 3:16
    These scriptures in John 3:3 are a great comfort to those who are seeking peace with God and man.

    Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    John 3:4

    Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

    John 3:5

    Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    At Calvary, the water poured from his side and intermingled with his blood and washed our sins away by faith in our repentance looking from up from the wilderness to his healing by repentance. The full result is His Spirit entered into our earthly tabernacle and filled us with peace and understanding.

    This Peace which is harmless, undefiled, separated from willing sin is God in man and will carry the new man by the guidance of his Holy Spirit to the finish of this earthly race.

  • Why is wisdom referred as a woman - in Reply on Proverbs 3:15
    1:20-21; 2:2-4; 3:14-18; 4:7-8; 8:1-36 and 9:1-12. Each time wisdom speaks. The first time wisdom speaks is in Proverbs 1:20-21.

    Wisdom shouts in the street,

    She lifts her voice in the square;

    At the head of the noisy streets she cries out;

    At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings: Proverbs 1:20-21 (NASB)

    The Hebrew word for wisdom is hakmot and this noun is a feminine plural. A literal reading would seem to be "Wisdom shouts in the street," except that the second line is in the singular - "she lifts her voice." F. C. Cook writes,

    In the Hebrew the noun is a feminine plural . . . as though this Wisdom were the queen of all wisdoms, uniting in herself all their excellences.[1]

    That is, since Proverbs 2:6 says that God gives wisdom, the wisdom in Proverbs is the queen of all wisdoms. There is no greater wisdom.

    For the LORD gives wisdom;

    From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

    He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

    He is a shield to those who walk uprightly . . . Proverbs 2:6-7 (NKJV)

    Why Is Wisdom A Woman?

    Why did Proverbs personify wisdom as a woman? The answer is we do not know because Scripture never tells us. However, many have speculated why wisdom is personified as a woman by suggesting different ideas, but we are never told. The explanations are merely speculation. It is wrong to state that Proverbs is written from a father to his son and then suggest that wisdom is personified as feminine in order to make wisdom appear attractive to the son when Proverbs 5:15-20 warns men to avoid prostitutes. Such a conclusion is contrary to the teaching of Scripture.

    Others suggest that wisdom is feminine because the Hebrew word is assigned the feminine gender. But this conclusion is wrong since the grammatical structure clearly refers to a female such as in Proverbs 3:13-15 and 9:1.

    Will where in the Bible does Jesus tell anyone that they must be taught the words of God by other pastor's?

    The word of God as a testimony I agree with because God speaks to us all daily is we listen. Are you trying to tell me that a testimony is only to speak what's in the word of God? I just wanted to be clear on what your telling me because all I see is a few scriptures. Can you be more clear in your own words what your saying? Thank you

  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 18:20
    I had a similar situation sorta kinda. All the money my mother had after my Dads death from the sale of a home and business was siphoned off by other drug addict siblings.

    She finally called me to come get her and take her to my house. She lived with me till she died.

    It was the Christians who came calling to get anything they thought was hers. It wasn't. Just to shame them, I let them have everything they asked for. And then it was over. Then God really did a huge work within me on forgiveness. It lasted a couple of years.

    Now, my soul is truly free and clean before my Lord and Savior. The peace of letting go of what others covet is beyond description.

    That's all that matters, in the end: How is our relationship between us and Jesus?

    I never knew I'd be asked to not only give my shirt, but give away my coat too.

    It's better to live your life for heaven right now; rather than after death. Whatever God asks, just give it. He replaces wood, hay and stubble with wisdom. I am reconciled to my family and all is well with my soul.....is all I can comment.

    I want my kids to remember what it looks like to be a Christian.

  • Was Noah39s Son HAM Black and Cursed - in Reply on James 1:2
    Cain was cursed. Not Noah or his sons.

    Sons of Noah: Shem, Ham and Japheth

    The Genesis flood narrative tells how Noah and his three sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, together with their wives, were saved from the Deluge to repopulate the Earth. ... In chapter 11 verses 10-26 a second list of descendants of Shem names Abraham and thus the Israelites (Jesus).

    In the Book of Jubilees (160-150 BC) the names of the wives of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth are as follows:

    * Wife of NOAH - Emzara.

    * Wife of Shem - Sedeqetelebab.

    * Wife of Ham - Na'eltama'uk.

    * Wife of Japheth - Adataneses.

    In the Biblical view, the listed children of Japheth, Shem and Ham (allegedly) correspond to various historic nations and peoples. In the typical interpretation, these sons of Noah correspond to three races: European, Semitic, and African. Alternate divisions claim Euro-Asian Japhet, Semitic Shem, and Afro-Asian Ham.

    The Genesis Rabba midrash lists Naamah, the daughter of Lamech and sister of Tubal-Cain, as the wife of Noah, as does the 11th-century Jewish commentator Rashi in his commentary on Genesis 4:22.

    In the medieval midrash Parry, J. H. (ed.). "5:15". Book of Jasher. Translated by Moses, Samuel., the name of Noah's wife is said to be Naamah, daughter of Enoch.

    Since the 17th century a number of suggestions have been made that relate the name Ham to a Hebrew word for "burnt", "black" or "hot", to the Egyptian word m for "servant" or the word m for "majesty" or the Egyptian word kmt for "Egypt".[4] A 2004 review of David Goldenberg's The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity and Islam (2003) states that Goldenberg "argues persuasively that the biblical name Ham bears no relationship at all to the notion of blackness and as of now is of UNKNOWN (color) etymology.

    You asked, now you can do some googling on where Ham lived and why people think he was black? I think he was dark because of the sun exposure; he lived in Egypt.

  • WHO WERE THE NICOLAITANS on Matthew 18:20
    Who Were the Nicolaitans, And What Was Their Doctrine and Deeds?

    But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. Revelation 2:6

    Have you ever wondered who the "Nicolaitans" were, mentioned in the book of Revelation? Whoever they were, Jesus loathed their doctrine and hated their deeds. Let's delve into this subject today to see if we can ascertain the identity of this group. What was their damnable doctrine? What deeds were they committing that elicited such a strong reaction from Jesus?

    Let's begin in Revelation 2:6, where Jesus told the church of Ephesus, "But this thou hast [in your favor], that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."

    Jesus was proud of the church of Ephesus for their "hatred" of the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which He also "hated."

    The word "hate" is a strong word, so let's see exactly what it means. It comes from the Greek word miseo, which means to hate, to abhor, or to find utterly repulsive. It describes a person who has a deep-seated animosity, who is antagonistic to something he finds to be completely objectionable. He not only loathes that object, but rejects it entirely. This is not just a case of dislike; it is a case of actual hatred.

    The thing Jesus hated about them was their "deeds." The word "deeds" is the Greek word erga, which means works. However, this word is so all-encompassing that it pictures all the deeds and behavior of the Nicolaitans; including their actions, beliefs, conduct, and everything else connected to them.

  • MANKIND CAME FROM DUST - in Reply on James 1:2
    Back in Genesis chapter 1, God formed Adam from DUST. Eve was taken from Adams rib, and God made Woman.

    All colors of people's came from DUST!!!

    From the beginning until the End.

    If people are HELL BENT on persecuting NON-WHITE people....

    No matter how many times they get baptized in water, they will still be the COLOR they got from the DUST.

    What people need is to be Baptised into Jesus Christ so their MINDS can be renewed!!

    It has been scientifically PROVEN that all colors are in dust. White people came from a colorless piece of dust. You ever find totally white dust/dirt in a flower bed???

    Guess What!? God is Spirit. The Holy Ghost is Spirit. THEY ARE NOT WHITE!!!!

    They are Spirit.

    How can you go around Hating People that are a different color of DUST?? It does not compute. I say that if dust is a problem with your perceptions..... you are NOT born again....YET.

    It is entirely possible that people in Heaven are the color of dust. What are you going to do then? Heaven is decked out in all kinds of jewels, every kind and every color: rubies, sapphires, amethyst, jade, ONYX, etc.

    Looks to ME, like, God Loves Colors.

    HATE is not of God.

    God is LOVE.

    21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.

    22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

    26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

    27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

    28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord.

    29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

    30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

    31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.

    be quiet and learn

    27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

    28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
