  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I know its popular to say that at funerals and to comfort those mourning, but I don't believe it's true. They might be in a 'better place' however, just not heaven, because all must wait for judgment. Also, it says the dead will rise to meet Jesus in the air. I'm sure it will be spiritual bodies, not physical ones that have rotted. It wouldn't make sense otherwise if people went straight to heaven to then go back to earth to an old body just to raise up and meet Jesus in the clouds, just for the ceremony of it. So, both scripture and logic refute that idea. Most people believe this because of Jesus telling the other guy on the cross that he would be in paradise. First, Jesus can pick whomever he wants to have special treatment- it doesn't automatically mean 100% of others will follow suit and ignore the other scripture. Secondly, paradise may not necessarily mean heaven. Paradise could be an intermediary place of rest or waiting. Just some thoughts. No one knows 100% until it happens. We just have scripture and logic.

  • Grace regarding 1 Peter 12 - in Reply on Colossians 2
    Hello Gar,

    I'm interested to know about which old documents you are referring. What reference or proof do you have that the word "elect" was not in the original Greek? I'm hoping this is true, but it could be too difficult for anyone to show this because of lost scrolls, fake documents accepted as authentic by some, and just too many centuries have passed

    Anyway, I've checked that the ancient Greek word eklektos was translated correctly as the adjective "elect" in the 1611 KJV. Others translated it as "chosen". Note that eklektos is an adjective, a descriptor, a word that is an attribute or characteristic. It is not a noun or a verb or even the past tense of the verbs to choose, to select & to elect as Calvinists have misinterpreted and misunderstood. Example sentence starting with an adj. : (Sam is) Amusing according to Kim's letters

    Eklektos must be translated as a characteristic or quality as it was intended to be descriptive. So, in English the adjectival meaning of 'Elect' is: worthy to be chosen, favourite, preferred, and or "selected for an office, but not yet inducted". Likewise, when "chosen" is used instead of 'elect' as an adjective, chosen means: preferred, to be selective from a number (of available). 'Preferred' would've been the better English translation to stop the arguments

    What's more, "foreknowledge" is "prognosis" in ancient Greek. So that sentence means 'We are preferred by God, according to His ability to see into the future, to be sanctified for obedience'. It's not the Calvinist 'The Chosen Ones according to His will'

    3 different bible versions have all used the same document for 1st Pete1:2

    21st Century KJV

    New Life Version

  • NEW 2020 on Revelation 6
    Did anyone mentioned the fulfillment of the symbolic horsemen prophecies?

    Briefly, Revelation 6:2 is a symbolic leader of Israel who had gotten a crown (the Palestine's Lands) and is set on conquering the Palestine people

    Revelation 6:4 is a symbolic Palestine leader who is going to get a huge support from the East to make War in Israel

    Revelation 6:5 is a symbolic American leader who is controlling all the world economy and is also protecting the interest of the jews and christens in Israel

    Revelation 6:8 is a symbolic christen leader in Israel who will be persecuted along with many christens.

    Who was the first with this interpretation?
  • MURRAY HILL on Matthew 12:42
    1 Chronicles 16:11: what is the literal meaning of to seek his face - throughout the old testament basically.

    i get that we should seek the lord while he may be found, but what does it mean to actually seek his face?
  • An-noor on 1 Timothy 2:4
    I like the Bible because it tell us about God
  • Mary m white on 1 Timothy 2:4
    The pastor this morning said your spirit and soul go immediately to heaven. What I do not get is.... if spirits go immediately to hell or heaven, then why is there a judgement day? You would already be where you are. The white thrown judgement is after the 1000 year reign, so would God pull em out of hell to send em back to hell after judgement? and bring us from heaven to go back to heaven after the judgement? Please help me to understand what happens after death.

  • Patrick Osborn on John 5:28
    Is a trait and an attribute the same?
  • Jose Sanchez on John 12:30
    I have a great question , when the Lord Jesus said: "Father glorify thy name" , did Jesus give an order to the Father? , but this can't be, because Jesus said , "my father is greater than I"

    And the verse "this voice came not because of me , but for your sakes". What does it mean?

    I hope to get an answer.

    Have a nice day.

  • David on Amos 1
    what earthquake is amos referring to?
  • As I watch the heartache, deceit, betrayal, and selfishness in crumbling marriages all around, couldn't this verse be referring to the end of sorrows for some and the potential for likely pain, albeit in growth, for the other? I'm finding little desire to go to any wedding celebrations bc it means stretching and growth and potentially heartache and separation.
  • Connie Green on 1 Chronicles 16
    The Commentary says that no offerings or sacrifices was held because there was no alter. If that was so, then why do the scripture say so and the people were given a loaf of bread, meat and wine after the sacrifice?
  • Grace - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Hello Betty,

    It relates to the previous verse 27 saying He never gets tired or faint so that any sinful Israelites can't get away unpunished while others can ask Him anything anytime, but they choose not to consult him anyway
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Alexander - "If", when you express doubt about the witness of scripture regarding God's creation of Adam

    and Eve, what difference can any other issue make that would escape your doubts?

    Unaware of? You're not alone. And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err,

    because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? Mark 12:24
  • Gar on Colossians 2
    Why does 1 Peter 1:2 in the KJV use the word "ELECT," and yet is not found in the original Greek?

    Adam was created west of Eden. If you got a old map I think he was created in the land of Nod. Eve was created in Eden.

    Mary is not Jesus's Mom. Neither is His Josept His father.

    He didn't. Adam was the first man. There was no half man and half ape.
  • Troy on Ezekiel 44:24
    This is a great verse--Ezekiel 44:24-- to make Christians scratch their heads. Ezekiel is talking about the future (our future too and the Third Temple) yet righteous people will be EXPECTED to keep the laws and judgements and Sabbaths? (Not to mention that all must be circumcised in heart AND flesh in the future if they wish to be in God's House (Ezekiel 44:9). So the question is why do we think Jesus came to destroy the Law when Ezek says we will keep it forever??

    Stuff is not slang. It is a general all inclusive word. And also you do know this is the 2016 KJB version. Right?
  • Grace - in Reply on 2 Samuel 5:24
    Hello Patricia,

    In this second battle at Rephaim, God told King David to take his soldiers to the back of the enemy's camp with the tactic to surround them after they start the attack. But they were not to start attacking until God gave the signal. The signal was when the birds fly off the Mulberry trees. A flock of birds usually fly up from the tops of trees

    Hosea 14:5

    "I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon."

  • Larry on Matthew 12:42
    Where in the Bible does it say to use wisdom and knowledge in all things?
  • Donna on Acts 9:18
    In Acts 9:16 "For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake." Does it really say "shew?" I am hoping it's a typo on the site. :) If it does say "shew," what does it mean? In context, it looks like it might mean "show." I am not trying to nitpick. I know that the word "shew" isn't going to make or break whether someone feels the spirit, and gains faith in Christ. I am just curious, and I am NOT a troll. Thank you.
