  • Lou Contino on Job 20:15
    Do the words of Job, from the dust of his despair, mirror the words of Jesus upon the cross when he says, "My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?" They very well may. For upon The Cross, we see Jesus, God & Man, praying to The Father in suffering the weight of The Sins of The World upon Him. And His cry is the cry in His Humanity, while His final words of "Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit" are His Trust Reaffirmed with His Father. Well beyond my understanding for sure, but isn't it AWESOME!
  • Cher - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Also Chris, government officials are now imposing church members not to sing in the church because the lie that virus can be spread.

    If that's the case, why not have people just blow on a cotton swap than sticking it up their nose? I will tell you why because our government is lying about this contagion and you need to open your eyes to this evil agenda in my opinion.

    I guess you would just gladly oblige government orders and don't question it at all.

    In regards to your example of running a red light, we aren't talking about purposely driving recklessly. I am talking about following man's law that totally goes against God's Law.
  • Cher - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Bottom line I follow God's law and not the law of man. With all do respect, your reasoning isn't faith base but more of following the law of government officials who all partake in devil worshiping and blood sacrifices.

    God gave us an immune system that protects us from any illness as well as provided the food and herbs that helps us recover from any illness.

    I am not obligated to anyone but carrying out God's expectations. You show a scripture in the bible that clearly states that mask wearing is not of demonic practices? You show me a passage in the bible where the bible says distancing from your fellow sister or brother in illness is God's wishes?

    You can't show such verse because God never said to do such thing. There is also a passage in the bible is where you know evil is when you are being told that bad is good and good is bad. Us wearing masks isn't good for our respiratory system and it's demonic. Social distancing creates psychological fears and it's bad for your mental state as well as creating fear of your fellow neighbors. Yet we are told by our government is is good but actual fact this is bad. It goes against God's law and it would be a good idea to study Gematria as well as Khabal. This is the demonic practices by our leaders and you my dear friend need to wake up to these facts.

    What is the diferent between the holy bible & holy quran?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Colossians 1:18
    So who said this and to who was this directed to?

    Bible book of John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

    46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

    47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

    48 Then answered the Jews

    Then answered the Jews

    Then answered the Jews

    pretty obvious who Jesus called of their father the DEVIL. Obviously not all of them

    So is Jesus is an antisemite?

    It was Jesus who condemned, not me.

  • Jesse - in Reply on John 14
    Bob, I have one more question for you. Is your faith "lukewarm?"
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 61
    I was so sad to read of the loss of your son. But your words didn't end there: it showed that in your grief you are being ministered to from the Word of God & by His Spirit. That is God's healing balm for your spirit & soul that is not given in measure but always in its fullness.

    And I share the following from personal experience. I lost my Mother when quite young, then fifteen years later my Dad had also gone. I was not only all alone now but emotionally shattered - I went towards the edge of a high hill preparing to suicide. I had turned to the Lord a few years earlier but just couldn't face not having any family with me & suicide was my only option to cope with my grief. If it were not for the Lord's Presence in a mighty way at that instant, I would have easily gone through with my plan.

    Psalms 16:11: "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." This was the verse that pounded in my heart & more so as I approached the edge. God's Spirit was withholding me & reminding me that I can still enjoy His Presence & Love to the fullest in spite of my loss & that my Dad too was enjoying God's Presence right there in Heaven, with my Mother. And you know what? I didn't even know about this verse or where it might be in the Bible: God put it there in my mind. I had to search it out later in the Bible.

    Such is God's special Work in believers' hearts - when we belong to Him, His Spirit intervenes in a very special way to minister to that part of us that hurts the most & reminds us of His Love which we can hardly comprehend. It's been 35 yrs since that time & I still remember it vividly but more so, God's immediate intervention to spare my life. Giesela, I pray that you will continually find joy & peace in your life as you resort to your loving Heavenly Father. That's an empty hole in your heart that only God can fill in a beautiful way. I'll leave Psalms 16:11 for you too.
  • Paul - in Reply on Exodus 4
    Jesse

    In the same Spirit of the apostles I say it's sad to know they took our God and hung Him on a tree saying, "others he saved himself he cannot."

    Peter declared, "But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;"

    Stephen declared before his martyr, "Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.

    "Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:"

    Our Lord asked, " O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt."

    It is easier to sympathize for Judas saying it was scripted for him to betray our Lord?

    Why should Judas be damned when he only fulfilled prophecy?

    Have we sympathized to our Lord?

    Is it not sad that because of evil men our Lord was crucified?

    Or do we say, Oh well, it had to be that way?

    When the scriptures say God is merciful and longsuffering, we have no idea how longsuffering our God is regarding us.

    Would it not be an unbearable thought to find out an evil king commanded that every male infant from age 2 under be slaughtered because you or I was born?

    Do we sympathize with Judas? or our Lord?

    Our Lord came to save us from the Judas' who killed the prophets and resist the Holy Ghost.
  • Jesse - in Reply on John 14
    Bob,

    Please do not twist my words to make it look like I believe the Lord is a polygamist. Have I ever heard of the bride of Christ? Of course I have. And I never said there is no mention of the church after Revelation Chapter 3. Please read my post carefully before twisting my words. The church is mentioned in Chapter 19. We are the ones who will be clothed in white garments, the garments of a bride. I find the 7 steps of a Jewish wedding quite fascinating with how it parallels Christ coming for His bride. You may not find it fascinating as you seem to be completely against all things Jewish. Can you show me where in Chapters 3 through 18 the church or the phrase "bride of Christ" is mentioned? If you can show me that, perhaps I might be persuaded to at least rethink my position. Also, since you believe the church has to go through the tribulation, what will the role of the church be during this time?

    You say believing Christians are called saints at times? I'm not sure what you are getting at. I know every born again believer is a saint. I became a saint the moment I received Christ. I am a saint by calling. Christ called me and I responded to the call and I received Christ. So I am a saint. It has nothing to do with my human performance. I am a saint because God has set me apart for His purpose. That's what a saint is. The words holy, saint, set apart, sanctified, and sanctification all come from the same word, Hagios.

    The church will not be overcome by the Antichrist because the church will not be here. There will be people getting saved during the tribulation and they will be put to death for it. I guess you can say they will be overcome because being beheaded sounds like being overcome to me. They were not part of the church at the start of the tribulation, and the church does not enter into the tribulation. They went into the tribulation as non-believers and refused the mark and received Christ after being warned by guess who? Jews, 144,000 of them!
  • Chris - in Reply on James 1
    Thank you for your comments, "Seventh day is sabbath". I always maintain that if the foundation is not settled, then anything built thereon will be shaky. So, referring to your first comment: "The Sabbath was given to man Mark 2:27 at creation Genesis 2:2-3 it's not a day that God required just for the Israelite's to keep, which is why the 4th commandment starts with "remember" it is because the children of Israel had forgotten through hundreds of years of slavery in Egypt."

    It seems that your understanding of those Scriptures in Genesis & Mark applied not only to Israel but to all mankind, or more specifically to the 'other sheep' that were to come into Christ's fold. To this I disagree, for the following reasons:

    a. Exodus 31:13-17 & Ezekiel 20:12. Clear references as to who should keep the Sabbath & that it was given as not only a day of ceasing from all labours, but as importantly, a sign of the relationship between God & Israel. It was never intended to include Gentiles or the Church in such a requirement.

    b. Galatians 3:19. Shows that both the validity & finality of the Law (the whole Law) was fully realized at the death of Jesus Christ.

    c. Matthew 5:17. Jesus demonstrated that He alone could fulfil the whole requirements of the Law & none else. The Law was given because of "transgressions" but none could obey it fully to please God & satisfy its demands, since "if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law" (Galatians 3:21). So no Law could bring righteousness, even as a certain ruler learned (Luke 18:18-24). If he believed he obeyed all of God's Law, how did Jesus pick him up on that point of selling all & following him? That man just had a quick lesson to find out that he in fact didn't obey it perfectly: he broke the very first commandment by placing his wealth, & maybe family & other assets, before his love for God.

    How then can we rest on the Law for anything except to know God's Mind & Purposes?
  • DH - in Reply on Proverbs 6:16
    I don't know if I should forgive myself,it was a terrible thing to do and I know God Could forgive but should he ? I understand what you are saying,I'll try what you said about casting out any bad memories and ask God to help me forgive myself Thank you for your words and wisdom. May God bless you all
  • Mishael on Condemning Memories - in Reply on Proverbs 6:16
    Apostle Paul ordered Stephan killed for evangelizing. Stephan saw heaven open and Jesus stand up, at the offense of his murder. I believe Stephan was taken then, so as not to suffer anymore. So was your baby. Who is alive now in heaven. God knows your pain and you must begin to have FAITH in His forgiveness. Without faith it's impossible to please God. The blood of Jesus has been poured out for all of your sins. Even this.

    Feelings are not Faith. Your feelings declare that God cannot forgive this.

    Another thing you need to know: satan is the ACCUSER of the brethren. He will accuse and grind you into powder if you allow it. He's counting on you to walk away from God.

    Paul met Jesus by hearing only the next day. He was confronted and blinded a few days after. His life was changed forever. He wrote much of the New Testament! Many have been born again through him.

    Do as I had to do: give your child a name and know there will be a happy reunion in heaven someday. There will be no memory of the offense. Why? Because the blood of Jesus has been shed over that memory.

    You must turn on Satan and cast him and his demons OUT of your memories. Fear (a demon) hath Torments (demons that torture). That's who your enemy is. You make it easy for them when you self-condemn. 'Torments' is plural so you may have to do it, more than once. Satan is cruel.

    YOU are going to have to be like that cripple man Jesus healed: He said, RISE, pick up your bed and walk home!

    There is NOW no condemnation to those that ARE IN Christ Jesus.

    Every time you hear that condemning voice in your head: you are going to have to cast out those demons, In Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Name, to go into dry places, forever.

    You must fill up your mind with the Bible. Stay in the Gospels and memorize what Jesus SAID to everyone who was healed.

    Be diligent.

    It's way in the future, but someday you will be strong enough to help someone else get free from condemning memories.
  • Bob Hilt on James 1
    Jesus tells us plainly the timing of the resurrection 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 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?)

    Did Jesus mess up the timing of end time events?

    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.

    Paul,

    If I can just add one thing to some already great answers, all the armies of the world could not have taken Christ. No earthly power could have taken Him. Jesus Christ came and freely gave Himself to the cross, fulfilling the purpose for which He came.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on John 14
    Jessie there is not mention of the church after Revelation 3? Have you not heard of the bride of Christ?

    There is no separate Jewish bride and a different Christian bride. There is only one bride and the Lord is not a polygamist with multiple brides. Believing Christians are called saints at times. If you do not see the church it is because you are not looking for her. The Church is going to be overcome in the flesh by the antichrist and be purified of her lukewarm faith.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    John L - you need to reconcile who Jesus is before you are concerned with the Noahide laws that are not in the Bible.

    1 Timothy 3:16 "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

    Who is this about? "God was manifest in the flesh"

    John Chapter 10:28 And I (Jesus) give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand. (How can Jesus, if a mere man give eternal life?)



    29 My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's hand.

    30 I and [my] Father are one. I and [my] Father are one, I and [my] Father are one.

    31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

    32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

    33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

    (Jesus never told them they misunderstood)

    How about Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    Only God can forgive sins and Jesus told some their sins were forgiven.

    So is Jesus a deceiver or is he God in the flesh as 1 Timothy 3:16 states?

    Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us US make man in our image, after OUR our likeness:

    Should we believe the Lord is speaking to the angels?

    Please do a study on the Godhead and quit being concerned about made up laws that exist only in the minds of antichrist rabbis.
  • Bob Hilt on Ezekiel 8:14
    The Temple of Solomon was destroyed and is not facing any direction today.

    God the Father allowed Rome to give a message to those who rejected Christ and his sacrifice

    in 70 AD when they invaded Jerusalem and destroyed the Temple. Thus fulling the prophecy of Jesus in Matthew 24 when he said not on stone would be upon another. Judaism as a religious practice with animal sacrifices ceased to exist.

    The wailing wall is not part of the Temple, unless Jesus was a false prophet. I believe Jesus, not those who pray at the wailing wall. The wailing wall is part of an old Roman fort.

    Matthew 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

    2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 6:16
    Dear DH,

    Since you feel guilt and remorse of your past sin that's a good thing. That means you genuinely regret it, but if you confessed this and repented to God already then God has already forgiven you. Hebrews 8:12. The only step remaining is you forgiving yourself and giving that burden to God. If you refuse to forgive yourself, then you might ask: what Jesus dying for you not enough? Galatians 2:21 It is for everyone else, so why not for you? He loves you that much to die for you and forgive your sin even when you mess up, even when you know better, can you accept that? Do you accept his gift?

    >I feel it's unforgivable

    Let's challenge this statement. This is an assumption, because you don't truly know that. It's also inconsistent with the Bible. The Bible says all sins are covered except for only one, blasphemy of the holy spirit, and that's not what you did. If your statement was true it would also be true for others too, but its not. There are countless others who have also gone through this and feel 100% forgiven. If its true for them how could a different standard apply for you?

    The Bible already made its promises so if you don't believe the Bible that is another matter. You're forgiven, wiped away, and if you follow Christ you this sin is forgotten: Hebrews 8:12. It takes faith to believe the Words of God and to apply them. It clearly says you're forgiven. Believe and celebrate that and go and 'sin no more'. John 8:11

    God bless you!
  • Seventh day is sabbath - in Reply on James 1
    Chris:

    a. The Sabbath was given to man Mark 2:27 at creation Genesis 2:2-3 it's not a day that God required just for the Israelite's to keep, which is why the 4th commandment starts with "remember" it is because the children of Israel had forgotten through hundreds of years of slavery in Egypt.

    b. Jesus came to this world not to destroy the law and the prophets Matthew 5:17, The law (10 commandments) says to remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

    The breaking of bread in Acts 20:7 is referring to eating (food) (see Acts 20:11)

    1 Corinthians 16:2 the "first day of the week" Paul is referring to putting aside your offerings (collection for the saints) starting on the first day of the week (Sunday) (see 1 Cor.16:1)

    Revelation 1:10 John was in vision on the sabbath (Lord's day is the sabbath, For the son of man is Lord, even of the sabbath day. (see Matthew 12:8)

    c. What was nailed to the cross was the "ceremonial laws" not the 10 commandments. In (Matthew 27:51) the veil of the temple was rent in two when Jesus died on the cross, the ceremonial laws that God had required since sin came into the world (sacrificing animals ect) was no longer needed because the ultimate sacrifice had just been made and that was the shedding of blood of a sinless Jesus on the cross.

    Matthew 5:18 One jot or one tittle shall not wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter into the gates of the city.
  • Balmlife on Psalms 91:1
    Saints of God, I have experienced God in a way that I cannot explain for the past 5 years. All that I can say is that if it had not been for God, I would have been destroyed. I personally can attest to the ability of my mighty God to shelter from the storms of life. Everyday He is teaching me how to dwell in His presence. Are there distractions? "Yes, but with the distractions, I hear His voice calling me deeper into His presence. He love us men and women of God. The more we need Him, the closer He is willing to come into our messes, turning our messes into moments of victory!

    This is what the commentary says about the scapegoat:

    16:21 All the iniquities - He mentions iniquities, transgressions, and sins, to note sins of all sorts, and that a free and full confession was to be made, and that the smallest sins needed, and the greatest sins were not excluded from, the benefit of Christ's death here represented. On the head - Charging all their sins and the punishment due to them upon the goat, which tho' only a ceremony, yet being done according to God's appointment and manifestly pointing at Christ upon whom their iniquities and punishments were laid, #Isaiah 53:5|,6, it was available for this end. And hence the Heathens took their custom of selecting one beast or man, upon whom they laid all their imprecations and curses, and whom they killed as an expiatory sacrifice for their sins, and to prevent their ruin. A fit man - Heb. a man of time, that is, of years and discretion, who may be trusted with this work. Into the wilderness - Which signified the removal of their sins far away both from the people, and out of God's sight. And here the goat being neglected by all men, and exposed to many hazards from wild beasts, which were numerous there, might farther signify Christ's being forsaken both by God and by men, even by his own disciples, and the many dangers and sufferings he underwent. The Jews write, that this goat was carried to the mountain called Azazel, whence the goat is so called, #Leviticus 16:10. and that there he was cast down headlong. By Wesley

    d. to those that then require the keeping of the Sabbath as mandatory even for Christians, does the disobedience to this Law then translate to sin & what then is the result? In other words, is there hope of salvation for the 'Christian' who refuses to recognize the Sabbath Day? Is our salvation dependent on the Cross plus the keeping of the Sabbath?

    e. However, is it possible to keep the Sabbath, indeed the whole Law as one would so be bound to, & not commit the sin of syncretizing the Law of Works & Grace? Would not then the observance of the Sabbath be a sin, as it shows the believer placing himself back under the Law for salvation or to assist in it? So, a Sabbath-keeper is obliged to 'keep the whole Law & if he offends in one point, he is guilty of all (Js 2:10).
  • Chris - in Reply on James 1
    Page 1.

    Greg, you gave a good account in support of keeping the Sabbath day holy, but could you consider the following as the other side of this teaching?

    a. Israel was marked out by God to be His chosen people: to set His Love upon them & through whom His Son would come to reconcile man to God. As such there were two clear signs that proved to the nations about them, that this people were Holy, separated to God: the giving of the Law & Circumcision. No other nation received this instruction & compulsion to obey.

    b. when Jesus came into this World, His Ministry & His calling together of the twelve, they were still, in what we regard, the Old Testament, or Old Covenant, even though the Bible was divided differently. It was only natural, in keeping of the Law & occasion to worship, that the Sabbath was still recognized as the day of rest. After He rose from the grave & ascended to Heaven, the believers still worshipped on the Sabbath if attending the synagogue, but the 'first day of week' began to be recognized as the Lord's Day & the Church began to worship on that day (Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Revelation 1:10, in reference to the Lord's Day as a recognized day set aside).

    c. as part of the New Covenant, we understand that it was made through HIS Blood (unlike the blood of the sacrifices under the Old) which not only gave all who expressed faith in Christ's Work a New & Living Way back to God, but also "nailed to the Cross the handwriting of Ordinances that were against them" (Colossians 2:14). This now redundant Law signified that any obedience to it & binding of the Law to ourselves was no longer compatible to the New Covenant: indeed, to observe the Law of Works & the Law of Grace did despite to the Work of the Cross. The two cannot be syncretized. Galatians 2:21: "for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain."
