  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Acts 5
    Mishael, the trouble with pre tribbers is they do not understand the difference between the wrath of God and judgment.

    10 of the 12 apostles died for their faith. Stephen died for his faith. Paul died for his faith.

    Millions of Christians, in the last 100 years, died for their faith in communist Russia.

    Yet pre tribbers do not feel they would ever have to suffer the same fate?

    The wrath of the devil and the wrath of God is not the same, sadly this point is lost on most it seems.

    Every time we show plain scriptures of those dying in tribulation in revelation for the faith, it is explained away as apply to the "Jews" during that time.

    As if the Lord would never allow his church to suffer.

    The Lord protected Noah IN the flood, the three Hebrew children IN the furnace of fire, Daniel IN the lions den. Yet Stephen died for his faith in Christ as did many millions of others, some in Communist Russia under Stalin in the last 100 years. Where was the rapture for them?

    Acts 12:1 - Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

    Acts 12:3 - And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

    It is the wicked who kill those who have the testimony of Jesus.

    Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    Maybe watch TBN and the 700 club less and read the history of Christians under communism in Russia.
  • Mishael on Acts 5
    Bob Hilt:

    Do really believe that Jesus is going to suffer His Bride; the Bride of Christ;

    To go all the way through the Tribulation for the 7th Trumpet?

    To be tempted to take Antichrist's Mark of the Beast?

    To bow down and Worship the Antichrist?

    To be hunted like an animal by Antichrist's evil agents and taken to either take The Mark or be beheaded for the Testimony of Jesus ?

    To suffer screaming hunger and thirst because she has no way to get either?

    All believers who have been born again throughout human history?

    There is no scripture for what you preach.

    Your love of your own point of view endangers others.
  • Jo jo on John 3
    What does the word wrought mean in Luke 3 verse 21?
  • Adam - in Reply on Song of Solomon 3
    Hi John,

    >"The churches also change God's plan for marriage."

    What do you mean by 'churches' change God's plan for marriage? How? Which churches? Ones you attend or do you assume all are a certain way because of some you visited or a few people within the church you spoke to? Aren't the people who attend church just reading what the Bible says? In the decades I've attended churches- hundreds of them, not once have I seen anyone 'change' God's plan for marriage.

    In your previous comment you claimed that premarital sex is not sinful which is not what the Bible says, and now you're claiming to know God's plan for marriage? How do we know what you're saying isn't the devil's plan? And why assume that a cultural difference in popular marital age is God's plan? Paul said to stay single if you can and that's in the Bible, so I don't know how you assume God thinks everyone must get married by a certain age or that its ok to sin. If you put your hope and trust in God and learn about Him from the Bible and consider that an authority then what are your Bible references to back up this claim?
  • Arissa Nolastname on Galatians 4
    Where in the Old Testament does it say that Ishmael persecuted Isaac? Galatians 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

    I believe this section 4:22-31 among many in the Bible has been tampered with to stir contention in the middle east, and divide the Muslim tribes from the Jews, and now too with a divisive wall between all 3.

    I am in Christ, but have never experienced true freedom, not because of the Ishmaelites, Muslims, but because of white supremacists who have been persecuting the Muslims, Jews, & Christians for a VERY LONG TIME.

    These white supremacists have used occultic practices to control minds, hearts and turn brother against brother.

    It's time for the true Christians to get up off their hind quarters and pray for the household of Abraham- for healing, reconciliation, peace and unity.

    The white supremacists don't want a house united because a house united means power that the white supremacists cannot dominate. Their army will be destroyed very quickly, so now they use surveillance and lethal drones which is a very cowardly thing to do. They feel powerful when they are armed with their hi-tech weapons, and only aim to kill people they provoke to lash out, just so they have a reason to arrest, blow up, bomb innocent children, and use the excuse that it was an accident.

    Enough perversion of the Scripture as white supremacists have done for years to keep people enslaved, ignorant, and even in separating them from their children.
  • Gregory Byrd on Psalms 70
    My wife five months ago passed away from illness.She was a Christian lady with unbelievable personality and the sweetest person in the world the question I am asking is how can I be reassured that she is in heaven.Thank You
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Revelation 18
    Jesus speaks in Matthew 23:37 - O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! (in Jesus time)

    Who killed the prophets? ...O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets...

    Revelation 18:24 and in her (Babylon) was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
  • Heidi on Zechariah 5
    In Revelations it talks about the seven churches and seven stars. What does this mean?
  • Mishael on harvesting on 1 Samuel 2
    Nobody AGREES on when the Rapture takes place! As if we know more than Jesus?!

    Only God the Father knows.

    Get your lamp filled with oil.

    We're told to be ready and watching.

    Jesus said if you love me, feed my sheep.

    He said go ye; the Harvest is ready. The workers are few.

    My co-workers put coal in my Christmas stocking every year. I said at least give me enough to warm a hotdog! Next Christmas I get 2 lumps of coal.

    What are we doing with the Gift that Jesus has given to us?
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 3
    Bob, I fully agree with you. John was indeed judgemental but too often we apply a negative connotation to that word. He had every authority to proclaim what he did, even as his coming was according to prophecy (Isaiah 40:3). Even in Islam, he is considered a prophet of God (his Islamic name is Yahiya). So his authority was Scripture-based & his words were truly from God as they had come to pass, as proof of his appointment (Deuteronomy 18:22).

    I wonder whether the failure of Christians to speak forth to the Church & the world is because of this 'fear of being judgemental' attitude? We may not be perfect (neither was J the B: Matthew 3:14) & we have not been appointed by God to prophet-hood status, but don't we have the authority of God's Word, on which we stand? I realize that correct interpretation & application of the Word also comes to bear upon us, but I believe there is too little evidence of believers using their God-given authority & standing to warn/remind/judge errant folk in their folly. And those that might be energized to speak up, are very likely suppressed, so that their voice is not heard & the status quo of blissful ignorance & serenity is preserved. What will be the state of the Church when Christ comes for her? There'll be a few surprises, for sure.

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    Jesus tells us plainly in Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is

    likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

    25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed (weeds) tares among the wheat, and went his way.

    26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

    27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from

    whence then hath it (weeds) tares?

    28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather

    them up?

    29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

    30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST first the TARES (WEEDS) tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

    (first the tares WEEDS get gathered, then the wheat last) could it be any more plain than this?

    Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and

    went into the house: and his disciples came unto him,

    saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

    37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the

    good seed is the Son of man;

    38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of

    the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked

    one;

    39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is

    the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

    40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the

    fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
  • Bob Grove on Matthew 3
    I'm very impressed with John the Baptist , with what he said to the Pharisee and others that in verse 12 . Is he not being judgemental? Oh yes he is ! But if we examine our selves first we can see clearly and judge right . John was the greatest of all the prophets according to Jesus . And we can see why . In this verse . Even the Jews considered him a prophet at that time . He was one powerful prophet . John reveals how severe Jesus will be in judgement in the future . In verse 12 . What's the point ? The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and should motivate anyone to get right with God , because even though God is love and mercy , judgement is severe and sure , if we settle for less than Gods way .
  • Anita C - in Reply on John 14
    Yes, power and authority in the Holy name of Jesus the Christ and the Holy spirit is our conduit to reach the Holy of Holy's.
  • Anita - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    yes, this is my understanding as well.
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 29
    Stephen, what saith the Scriptures concerning the wilful taking of life (murder) of another? Our governments, for their own reason, promote their own agenda rather than abide by the Holy requirements of God's Laws. But we rest on Romans 12:19, "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."
  • Jesse on Revelation 1
    Jon,

    You say you were recently born again? If so, then you have God's Spirit in you. You can't be born again without His Spirit. When you receive Christ, His Spirit (Holy Spirit) comes into your spirit and seals you. That is a spiritual birth. That is what it means to be born again. So when you say you are born again, that is proof that you have His Spirit.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    Veronica,

    We are given an account of the horrific events of the Tribulation in Revelation Chapters 4 through 29. This is a time when God will pour His wrath on on an unbelieving world. There is no place in scripture that tells us that God's wrath will be poured out on believers. In fact, in 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5, it tells us that we are not appointed unto wrath, but to salvation. During the tribulation, there is no mention of the church until Chapter 19 when Christ comes back. But it says that He comes back with all His saints (The Church). If we come back with Him, it would seem to me that we are in heaven with Him during the tribulation. Plus, there is a wedding taking place in heaven before Christ comes back with His saints. We are His bride and this wedding is taking place in heaven while the tribulation is still happening on the earth. So, with that being said, I also agree with you the the church will be removed prior to these horrific events take place. There would be no purpose for us to be here during that time.
  • Tiyo - in Reply on John 14
    To All Christian's!

    When feeling down, depressed, no where to go. . . Start singing the Hymn- What can wash my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Oh precious, is the flow, that makes me white was snow! No other "way" I know. Nothing but the Blood of Jesus." Repeat, until the love of Jesus flows through you. It's the Blood of Jesus that takes away out pain, doubt, etc. Sing Christian's! Sing!
  • Tiyo Harris on John 14
    John 14 is one of my rocks, which I stand upon. Let not your heart be trouble (anxiety, depression, opression). Neither let it be afraid. Why Christian's? God is our Rock to which we stand. Christian's need to give ALL that troubles us to God. He will never leave us, or forsake us. He is our Comforter. To those who desire to harm us, "Vengance is mine sayeth the Lord. I WILL REPAY." If find myself running in circles, lost. I do not hear God speaking with His still & calm voice. And when I calm myself down. I am reminded that God sets my feet on solid ground. The Lord sends trials our way, to make us stronger. Trials will always be out there. We need to hold our hands up, to God!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

    In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    The First Resurrection is of the dead in Christ and the Second is after 1000 years. Paul wrote that the Dead in Christ MUST rise FIRST, THEN we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

    16 ...and the dead in Christ shall RISE FIRST

    17 THEN we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them...

    In Revelation 20:4-5, John sees the souls of Saints who were BEHEADED for refusing the Mark of the Beast during the Great Tribulation. John writes that they will rise and reign with Christ for 1000 years and that this is the FIRST RESURRECTION!

    If according to John, the beheaded rise in the FIRST resurrection and Paul said those who are alive and remain are not caught up until AFTER the dead in Christ are resurrected, then this means the catching up or rapture takes place AFTER tribulation!

    Now compare the above with 1 CORINTHIANS 15:20-23:

    20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of those who slept.

    21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

    22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    23 But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; AFTERWARDS THOSE WHO ARE CHRIST'S AT HIS COMING.

    Notice only one resurrection of the dead in Christ is mentioned here! Which, according to Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 must take place BEFORE we who are alive and remain are "caught up" with them!

    When did Jesus say the dead in Christ would be resurrected?

    John 6:39-40: Jesus said, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up ON THE LAST DAY.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:8
    WHEN IS THE RAPTURE / RESURRECTION?

    In Revelation 20:4-6 the last book of the Bible there are only 2 more FUTURE Resurrections (Raptures) spoken of: (after the 2 witnesses appear)

    4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the FIRST RESURRECTION. or rapture

    6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the SECOND DEATH hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

  • Veronica Bowen on Matthew 24:8
    I am having a (sometimes heated) discussion. I say the Rapture will come before the Tribulation. He says the Tribulation will come before the Rapture. What are some Scriptures that I can show him that will show that the Rapture will precede the Tribulation?

    Thank you.
  • Mike on Matthew 24:5
    Matthew 24:5 KJV

    (5) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

    Many false prophets shall come in His name (using the name "Jesus") saying that "I am the Christ"....that is, they come preaching "another Jesus" and state that the Jesus that they are preaching is the true Christ.

    They come preaching "another Jesus" stating that their Jesus is the true Christ (I am the Christ) and deceive the many who gladly bear with them.

    2 Corinthians 11:3-4 KJV

    (3) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

    (4) For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    But the "Jesus" that they preach is not the true Christ but is the "Antichrist"...instead of the true Christ.
  • Patty Tozi on Numbers 35
    Do you ever think about your life in these days? How close we are to losing our life faster then before. As the trees come down we will see more of God's creations die. So what does that mean? The less of God's creations our strength is harder to get. Unless you study and pray for our Heavenly Father to help us. Do not straddle the fence. Do not stop seeing day to day how God can take you away as we take His creations down. The sprays- the pollution..all killing us now slowly..or the silent virus that comes in a wink of an eye to get us. His warriors are struggling as we fight the evilness this world has become. We know now we live day to day. Never knowing without God close we would be gone in a wink of our eye. We most totally rely on our Father. Even our air we breathe. This world has turned way worse then l ever studied in 2012. Lies and deceit everywhere. Our God is our strength. Mankind our enemy. The evilness will show up right away if you have the light for strength around you to see. For everything will be exposed to you. Days going faster now-- have you noticed? Have you slowed down enough to really see the truth of our world now? Well, you should. Our life can end as fast as it began. So reach up to the Heavens always...not the world.

    Please tell me which will come first , the REAL rapture? Or The faux immitation Jesus to fool the Christians?
  • D.J. - in Reply on 2 Esdras 6:9
    Ronald, (Concerning the days of the week)

    Have you considered looking at the Dead Sea Scrolls?

    The Book of Enoch, in particular, reveals a 364 day solar priestly calendar; used by Israel until around 175 B.C.

    52 (weeks) x 7 = 364

    Look at the first book of Enoch; specifically, ch. 72, and ch. 82 (column 27) are words concerning the ancient solar calendar.
