    Brother Richard, do you use daily devotion? Check out Daily Light on the Daily Path, a collection of relevant KJV verses, morning and evening, for 365 days without author's comment because the relevant or related verses speak of the idea by themselves. The unknown author did a fabulous job listing them. Pastors can develop sermon notes from them very easily. Thanks

    Does Jesus know wean He is coming back?
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Acts 2:31
    Greetings, Brian.

    You asked what does Jesus saves us from.

    I'm almost certain that you know many Scriptures like...

    "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."Romans 6:23

    "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."Joh 3:18

    "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"Hebrews 9:27

    We see that there is judgement and death awaiting those who are not trusting Jesus. So where does that judgement come from?

    "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."Joh 3:36

    "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;"Romans 1:18 (KJVA)

    "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."Romans 5:9-10

    ...and there are many more verses, as I am sure you are aware. The wrath of God is the main and all-encompassing reason we need to be saved.

    Hope this helps.

    Donna,

    I suggest to find a different church to go to. The NIV version is never accurate, and what you read in the NIV won't ever be true. The NIV is called New International Version. The KJV version is the only one that will EVER be true. God wrote the Bible thousands and thousands and thousands of years ago. Hundreds and hundreds of years later, people have tried to change what the Bible says. Neither God or the Bible will change. So I suggest finding and going to a different church. I have a suggestion of what church you should go to, but first, what state are you in?

    Blessings,

    Sarah Chessiy

    I have in gospel presentations, as well as having it printed on my checks in the signature area(verses 3&4 only). Have you, and why do you ask?

    Praying for you, Joseph ... as per your request. God bless!
  • Brian Downey on Acts 2:31
    One of the meanings of His name, Jesus, is 'God Saves'.... But saves us, individually, from what? For those heretics who believe solely in the written word, even they must find the Gospel of Matthew convincing in Christ's references to his second coming and the inevitable division. Man knows the truth but cannot always persevere. Calvin was wrong, we are free to choose the truth to our dying breath as did the good thief on the cross. I think it fair to perfection to believe where ever He goes there is The Kingdom of God.

  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Romans 8:9
    How true , what does it mean to receive the holy ghost ? Is it actually a "GHOST" that comes on you? Faith, an activity that takes place in the heart, that cannot be understood is when Jesus comes into your heart, you become a changed person, the "old man " is no longer who we were! There is thought, that as long as one has this knowledge, this is all one needs to be saved! This thinking is what Jesus spoke against and about. He said, knowing the history is not enough! Just because you are of the seed, does not give you salvation! So ,one could say old things are passed away and all things are new! That in fact these things are the work of the holy spirit!
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    Connie,

    You say,"I am constantly told that my love for God is not going to save me

    from my sins." Your description of your love for God leaves out what knowing

    God produces in the mind and heart of believers, namely, his love for you.

    You say you know him as a guide and suddenly you confess wisdom to choose

    him.

    "This is my where my relationship with God began." The experience you describe

    is indeed awful, and in surviving it you could attribute that to the mercy of

    God, but it does not indicate/or merit eternal salvation. After all, as you

    said," I can turn back to it if i choose to." Maybe you've had what is

    recognized as a "foxhole confession", Oh God get me out of here and I'll

    believe in you. That's rational thinking, but it is the will of the flesh and

    not salvation. So now you profess two beginnings with God, both pre-Jesus.

    "I fear judgment. I live a life that I can proudly say is moral and kind.

    I am not without sin. But I trust God to guide me. Understand?"

    Yes I do and so do others on this site. It is no accident that you are here

    and talking about salvation. Salvation is traditional only because it is the

    same for everyone, only through trust in the death of Jesus for your sins.

    You can't earn it and nobody deserves it. When I said you don't mention his

    love for you, that is evident in that you "fear" judgement. You seem to

    prefer a "blind faith" that somehow things will just work out for you.

    God and his plan for salvation is understandable and that's what you are

    being pointed to by myself and others on this site.

    On the top of the opening page of this site is a menu selection called

    more. On that page is a selection called "How to become a Christian".

    There salvation is spelled out for you or anyone to understand.

    Donna Vargas,

    "we are without a preacher right now and they are cinsidering an interm"

    The "we" and "they" have to talk things through. Never forget Christ himself is the spiritual head of any church, and he dwells in the heart and head of every believer. Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
  • Charles R Peek on Ephesians 2
    Has anyone used 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" as the Gospel to believe to be born again?
  • Charles R Peek - in Reply on Galatians 5
    Neither of the two Scripture tell you how to be saved, (born again) John 3:16, or Galatians 5. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 tell us how to be saved during the age of grace. This is the Apostle Paul's Gospel, given to him by the Lord Jesus Christ to preach to the Gentiles.1 Corinthians 15:1-4 "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"
  • Charles R Peek - in Reply on Romans 8:9
    Remember Chris: tongues were for a sign unto the Jews bearing witness to the Gospel to the Jews (John 20:31) because the Jews require a sign, or they would not believe. Gentiles do not need a sign to believe.
  • Charles R Peek - in Reply on Romans 1
    The N I V leaves out 60,000 words, that the KJV has; and most of those word are about the Deity of Christ.
  • Ezekiel - in Reply on Philippians 2:2
    Joe Ann, I just came to your question when I was browsing comments. KJV sometimes have two or more verses making up one complete sentence. Here verses 1 and 2 are one sentence. Paul is telling Philippian church people that if they have charity (1 Corinthians 13:13) so to speak in verse 1, then they make him happy and he elaborates those characters for them to have, that make him happy in verse 2 like likeminded, same love, one accord, and one mind.

    "Fulfill ye my joy" is emphatic. Normally you would say, Ye fulfill my joy if or that.... Remember Isaiah 40:1, Comfort ye, comfort ye my people....? Isaiah repeated 'Comfort ye' for emphasis also. The more you read KJV, the more you will love its beautiful language. I heard that Shakespeare was influenced by KJV language. By the way, ye is plural of a single person you. I'm sure you knew about it.
  • Charles R Peek on Ephesians 2
    Charles Peek: In light of the fact that Jesus told His Disciples not to go to the Gentiles in Matthew Chapter 10; and then later on sent Paul to the Gentiles; why is Paul's Gospel (1st Corinthians 15: verses 3 and 4) not in your plan of Salvation instead of Acts 2;38?
  • Joe Ann on Philippians 2:2
    What does it mean to fulfill his joy can you explain the whole verse
  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 8:9
    I don't understand your meaning of "the mark on christians". Are you referring to something that some Christians supposedly put on the outside, e.g. a cross, Jesus pendant, etc.? Or, maybe you're referring to Ephesians 1:13,14: where we have been sealed (or, marked & secured) by the Holy Spirit as God's Own?

    However, the mark of the Beast, though we can't say for sure how it will be evident, seems to be an identifier on the skin or maybe under it, that reveals a person's decided position to follow & obey the rule of Anti-Christ. And this most will gladly do, so that they can still "buy & sell" & presumably lead somewhat normal lives, without being victimized or suffer hardship or even death.
  • Chris - in Reply on Hosea 8:4
    Marilyn, just another question for you (aside from the present discussion), since you mentioned a cross reference of Jeremiah 3:23 to Genesis 3:12. Since I'm still trying to place your understanding of the Bible with what is normally understood by others, & of course taking into account your earlier mention of the pastor who shared some things with you that greatly upset you, I therefore ask you:

    What is this Study Bible that you are reading from? Most Bibles will have another name, or at least mentioned within its early pages, give an indication of who has put it together. I mentioned earlier that mine is the KJV Ryrie Study Bible; anyone familiar with Bibles will immediately know the name as Charles C. Ryrie, a department Chairman, from the Dallas Theological Seminary. And if astute enough, they will probably know my theological position on a number of doctrines & teachings. But your interpretation of Scripture, it's cross references, & indeed your focus on perverted sin, tells me that your Bible is 'different' to what most of us read from. Would you care to oblige me this information? Thank you.
  • Rod - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    Hi Connie, I just read your story, and had to read it a number of times and can only imagine some of the trauma you must have suffered as a child, what you call blind faith I would call faith, that of a child, by your own admission your love for God is first in your life, and this is what God asks of us. Thank you and God Bless

    Matthew 5:3-18 Matthew 5:6 "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled."

    Matthew 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

    Matthew 22:36-39 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
  • SkipVought - in Reply on John 6:53
    Greetings, Tiffany.

    The Bible IS meant to be read, studied, meditated on, discussed, acted on and obeyed. And probably many other action verbs.

    It is The Word of God. Jesus said, "If ye love me, keep my commandments."Joh 14:15. How can you know what His commandments are unless you read the whole thing?

    The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:

    the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

    The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:

    the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

    The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:

    the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

    More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:

    sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

    Moreover by them is thy servant warned:

    and in keeping of them there is great reward.

    Who can understand his errors?

    cleanse thou me from secret faults.

    Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;

    let them not have dominion over me:

    then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

    Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

    Psalms 19:7-14

    If you got a love letter from your fianc, would you just open it up and randomly read a sentence and then put it away until you wanted another shot of love? No! I can tell that you're excited about becoming Mrs. Basile Johns III, and have devoured every bit of knowledge about what he likes and doesn't like and dozens, neigh scores if not hundreds of things about him that enchant you.

    What of The Love Letter, so to speak, from God, that tells of His love for us and the extent to which He has and is going and what He is preparing for us and how He wants you and me to be ambassadors for Him. Can you imagine that?!

    Read it every day not just going to where you are lead, using it like a ouija board.
  • Ezekiel - in Reply on Romans 8:9
    Brother Richard? Ezekiel again. It is waste of time to search Hebrew, Greek, or Aramaic languages. You won't enhance your understanding of scripture and I heard about 5,000 Greek manuscript fragments, most of them corrupt. We have Strong's Hebrew and Greek words attached to every word in KJV. They are enough for me. I do not need to learn about them. In my Bible software, I can find how a Hebrew or Greek word was translated differently, and yes the same word was translated differently into different English words.

    I have studied KJV for the last 10 years, wrote complete Bible annotations (I don't call them Bible commentary anymore), came up with some new theologies, and ready to preach and start my own ministry--a conservative church, many old hymn singing with piano and/or organ (no drum or guitar), men wearing suits and women skirts, Sunday morning and evening, and midweek service. Sounds familiar? Can't find a church like it these days easily, huh, can we?
  • Charles Barefoot on Hebrews 2
    Can you live a sinless life?
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Matthew 25:34
    Hello, Charles,

    Any time someone asks, "Why did God...?" or "Why did Jesus...?" I think of the question, "Why did God hate Esau?"

    "I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness."Malachi 1:2-3.

    My answer to that question is, "Why did God love Jacob?" He was such a deceiver!

    The fact is that in most cases, God never tells us WHY.

    We could speculate, but for what good?

    "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 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."Isaiah 55:8-11
  • Ezekiel - in Reply on Psalms 142
    Are you KJV believer like me, Tom? I just posted a somewhat lengthy and stimulating note on KJV and KJV-1611. Even if not, still go ahead and read it. Thanks
  • Ezekiel on Romans 8:9
    Hello KJV believers? So am I. Use KJV-1611 which is better than KJV. The words are identical but 1611 has chapter summary, and cross references and literal translations in the margin notes. KJV changed a few capital letters to lower cases or vice versa, for example, like from Prince to prince. 1611 has real spelling errors like Ifaiah for Isaiah. I found about 38 typos so far. Big one. Go to Micah chapter 4 page; it shows Ioel (Joel) instead at the top of it.

    I want to see 1611 large print and hopefully with spelling corrections but it is not available yet. Why did KJV remove chapter summary and margin notes what I consider very useful features? I still wonder!!??@@

    Anybody found KJV English grammar pattern? For example, second person, singular, present and past tense, the verb has either 'st' or 'est' ending. If thou wert = If you were thou wast = you were thou (singular) and ye (plural).

    Third person or object, singular, present tense, the verb has either 'th' or 'eth' ending. He saith, cometh; it hath.

    Satan interferes people from using KJV; he wants them to read corrupt versions. Some of them are really outrageous--completely different thoughts--and some are less serious. We KJV onlyism people are blessed to read it. GOD is perfect and so is HIS Word. Then KJV is the only (or near) perfect GOD'S Word, isn't it? Just think about it. Would HE not provide a genuine Bible for us when HE wants us to know HIM and obey HIS commandments CORRECTLY?

    Do not bother with comparing difficult verses with corrupt versions because they would not help you at all but they would mislead you rather. Ask friends or go to KJV commentary or annotation notes to find out what they mean. If you have one and ask me thru this website, then I will help you gladly. Again stay with KJV. Try to understand them with cross references, and pray to GOD more importantly. Holy Ghost will teach you. Thanks
  • Marilyn Taplin - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    Doesn't the Bible say the sexually perverse are prideful? Are you mistaken as to who the prideful ones are?

    Romans 1:21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imagination and their foolish heart was darkened. (speaking of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah). They bring a darkness to earth. They are spiritually blind.

    When will the Comments and enjoyment of the Scriptures open up. I miss so much

    reading how Christians uses and interrupts the Word of God.

    When can we expect this to happen?
