  • Sara J. - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Claire,

    The Bible says that you need to see yourself as a sinner first. Then once you see yourself as a sinner, you pray and ask God to forgive you of ALL your sins. After that, you get baptized. The Holy Spirit will not make you perfect until you go to Heaven, but will be with you all along the way till you die. Many people believe that you have to be a good person in order to get into Heaven but that is not the way it goes. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6 :23. I would encourage you that if you are looking for more Bible verses on How to be saved, look at the KJV Bible and look in either John, or Romans. Let me know if you have any questions on here.

  • SPIRIT OF TRUTH vs SPIRIT OF ERROR on Revelation 12
    Romans 3:4

    God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

    1 John 2:22

    Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    Proverbs 17:4

    A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

    1 John 5:10

    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth NOT... God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

    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.

    Proverbs 30:6

    Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

    John 14:6

    Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through ME.

    1 John 4:6

    We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the SPIRIT OF ERROR.

    Mishael: Don't try to reason with a witch. This is what they do: cause chaos.

  • Claire - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi Chris,

    I have just read the sermon 'The law written in the heart' by C.H Spurgeon as you suggested. Correct me if I'm wrong, but how I read it, is that I need to be baptised physically by water & cleansed spiritually by the blood of Jesus for my sins to be washed away & then the Holy Spirit will continue to make me perfect until I die & go to heaven. The problem I'm having is that my pastor says that I need to be born again before I get baptised ? How do I know who's interpretation is right ? Mine or theirs ? I feel like I have had a change of heart over some things, yet I'm still struggling with other things like unforgiveness towards my dad's girlfriend & their daughter. I have repented over this, but weeping over it & still feel resentment towards them & don't know how to get past this. Does it mean that I have to weep & morn over the situation for me to be feel any different about them ? Because if this is the case then I wouldn't even know where to start. I want to forgive them, but I can't really say that I would want to play happy families with them any time soon. I just feel like I will never be able to forward at this stage.

    God bless you & your family.

    Kind Regards

    Claire
  • DAVID on Daniel 2:21
    Do you think this means he will control whether mr trump or biden wins this election?
  • Adam - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    Bible doesn't condone slavery. Just because it doesn't address it specifically doesn't mean God allows it. It would be a logical fallacy to make such an assumption. The Bible doesn't specifically say that taking illegal drugs is a sin, like meth, cocaine, heroin, weed. Does that mean it condones it or is ok? No. It instead says your body is a holy temple. The Bible also doesn't say lying is wrong or a sin. Does that mean it's ok to lie? No. It says other places to not bear false witness. Lying is a sin. Colossians 3:9, for example. Watching pornography is obviously a sin, but the Bible doesn't say that specifically is a sin. It instead says all lust is sin. But Jesus took it a step further and said if you even look at a woman in the wrong way you're guilty of the sin. There are many other sins like this that aren't directly addressed, but is clear that it's a sin when looking at the context of all the verses. In many cases the Bible is even more restrictive than some assume.

    So, if someone is enslaved and held captive beyond their will, it's obvious it's a sin, because of the mountain of verses showing context, like love your neighbor as yourself, and don't seek vengance- turn the other cheek. Matthew 5:43-48. It even takes it a step further and says to be kind to your enemy, pray for them, help others, and give to those who ask. Luke 6:30-36. There are other indications from the Bible that slavery is a sin as well. The mosaic law of the Israelites was to put someone to death for attempting to trade slaves: Exodus 21:16. In 1 Timothy 1:8-10 it lists 'menstealers' (slave-traders) along with other sins.

    Romans 13:7-10. The Bible summarizes the commands as not every sin will be perfectly or specifically addressed, but just love one another. It says love is the fulfilling of the law.

    I already explained how slavery is different than servitude common in Bible.

    Given the mountain of scripture evidence, it would seem dishonest to claim the Bible says slavery is ok.
  • David W Black - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Hi Nathan, just trying to answer your questions. David, being in the Old Testament, had carnality in his heart. So that account was true that he had hidden or secret sins. Jesus had yet to die on the cross to make the way for salvation and sanctification that are available today. Acts 2 is the first account of sanctification being given to many. Sanctification is not normally going to be a public display of fire and noise. However, this particular account in Acts 2 was a very large gathering, and God wanted to draw attention to those that were preaching His word. This was not a pentecostal filling of the Holy Ghost, there were not unknown languages except that the apostles were speaking in foreign tongues or languages that they did not previously know. God enabled them to speak other known languages to go to other lands and preach the Word of God. Acts 2:8 "And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?" Those that heard the talk understood the words.

    Romans 12:1 "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." Being saved is evident; brethren and living sacrifice, not dead in sin.

    1 John 1:7, 9 "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Here it says being cleansed from all sin and then forgiving sins and cleansed from unrighteousness. And vs 6 mentions walking in darkness, that is from the stain of sin. Vs 8 there are those that believe they have no sin to be forgiven, vs 10 is similar. How then does vs 7, 9 say we will be cleansed of sin? Sin of the past, which all have done, needs repented of. Then we are free from committed sins, and need to go on to sanctification to be fully free from sin.

  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 1 John 5
    Rob,

    We all know, or the ones this is pointed towards, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. "The firstborn among many brethren".

    Just one question. You stated this "If you have a verse that proves Jesus Born in Bethlehem was in heaven before then you have a valid point." Is John 6:38-39 not enough? Which to me looks like the exact answer to the statement you made.

    How's Revelation 19:13. That is supposed to be Christ at His second coming. Correct?

    I'll state this. I believe it is quiet over simplified of people saying "Jesus and God are the same thing". I don't Believe that and don't agree with it. They most definitely are a part of one another. Jesus Christ even said in John 14:28 "I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I." Many other things I could quote that shows they are unique to each other. But as in 1 John 5:7 "these three are one." The Father, the Son(or Word), and the Holy Ghost are all a part of the Eternal Godhead.

    Jesus Christ is the Son of God that was born from a virgin, on earth, in the flesh, in Bethlehem. What about John the baptizer stating in John 1:15 "John bare witness of him(Jesus), and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me."

    May the Lord Bless us to all come together and have faith and trust in Him. I would never call myself smart. All Glory to the Father. Love one another my brothers and sisters. God Bless us all!
  • Drew - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    According to the book of Job, God had full authority over every aspect of Job's destruction. God considered Job a perfect and upright servant. We can rightly argue that Job did not deserve the persecution that he received at the hands of satan. We know that God had no need to prove Job to satan or anyone else. We know that God was aware of and allowed it. And Job never doubted God's authority over every moment.

    You've searched out and thought about it enough to bring up the story of Job to show God's ultimate authority over all of what you term the 'evil' failures of His creation. You craft and shade your rendition of the examples you give so that the whole situation begins to stink. Then you just drop your investigation right there and point to God and say 'He did it'. Do you really think that it should all be written off as that simple? If you're happy with that then I guess that's ok but then it sounds like a 'misery loves company' attack.

    Is beating or torture, even to death, the ultimate trouble to befall either an individual or his/her loved ones? Is there nothing worse than death? Can good come from 'evil'? Thousands of years later millions of people like myself are wiser thanks to God having provided us this account in the life of Job.

    For various translations of the word 'evil' (as found in Job 2:10 for example) you can do a web search on "Strongs H7451". I think you'll find that displeasure, distress, or adversity will be an accurate modern English equivalent.
  • Rob on Matthew 17:5
    Matthew 17 v 5

    Another witness of God the father of Who Jesus is , His Son .

    So is Jesus God the son ? Never mention in scriptures, not even by Jesus or God himself .

    Jesus called God father , and God says by Witness that Jesus is his Son . This is the record do you believe Gods witness ? Or men's doctrines on who Jesus is ?

    For me it's a closed case .

    Jesus is the Son of God .

    Anyone what to challenge God ?

    Think twice .
  • Rob on Matthew 3
    Mathew chapter 3 v17

    So here we a 1 recorded witness of God and there are others they all say the same , This is His Son .

    Where does God say by witness anything other than this is His Son ?

    Attempt all you want you will never find it unless you can not hear the truth , I do understand some will never truth because they don't have ears to hear . Like the Pharisees they are still among us .

  • Being Critical on Revelation 12
    Hebrews 10

    23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised

    24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

    25 Not forsaking the ASSEMBLING of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

    Comment By Mishael:

    Verse 25 is talking about going to Church; and it clearly tells us why we do that. If Almighty God is telling us to go to Church, I'm sure it means He will keep us from getting the virus. But it's up to each individual to practice safety if they want to.

    Why do we go to Church? It is more than seeing what people are wearing, or critiquing the praise and worship songs, or Who's there and who's a "no show." How truly petty and carnal.

    We are there to fellowship, share a testimony of how God has blessed you that week; or someone you know. If people are fearful, then YOU pray for God to meet their needs. Have something positive to say. Exhort each other that Jesus is returning soon.

    Do we think that Moses had time to stop and share with frightened people crossing a sea bed fleeing from Pharaoh? God told him to get up Front do the people could see him.

    Church is FAMILY. It's not Facebook or twitter or fake media; they will gossip as soon as your back is turned.

    We need to read ALL of Hebrews 10.

    Only a soldier whose been on a battlefield knows what I am saying: NO SOLDIER LEFT BEHIND !!! You pick them up and get them to safety.

    The Christian Church in China is having their churches SHUT DOWN. You can't have church in your home. They confiscate all christian literature and destroy it. Now they are giving $30,000 fines to Christians who do not obey. Your athiest neighbors rat you out to authorities. China cops are installing surveillance cameras in private homes on repeat offenders.

    Be a blessing to those that may be scared and need encouragement.
  • Rob on 1 John 5
    1 John 4 verse 9

    God Gave witness about His Son Jesus and this witness is greater than any compilation of men's attempt to explain Jesus .

    So who do you believe reader Gods witness or men's attempt to explain who Jesus is ?

    When Did God give witness? I can recall because it's recorded by those that witnessed it .

    One of the qualifications for Judas replacement was that he had to be present at the baptism of Jesus . To be a witness of God s witness of his Only begotten Son norm in Bethlehem, Jesus .

    On the mount transfiguration again God gave witness, what did God say ? Read it ! Believe it !

    Read the whole chapter of 1 John 4 , keep things in context , don't cherry pick from all over the scriptures and form a doctrine .

    A doctrine is in its own context .

    May the truth set you free !
  • Sj on Genesis 1:26
    Here God makes everything good and he blesses.God's word is so powerful it creates. God's spoken word was disobeyed. The Word became flesh to save us.

    King James Bible

    Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. You have to be born again and be a doer of the word to bless our offenders and love the law to not be offended.

    Disobedience brought down the human race. Obedience brought man back to God and in the name of Jesus you can come to God. Being a doer of the word is powerful.

    Satan comes to take our eyes off the word of God and go by our carnal eyes. We need to hunger and thirst for righteousness. Matthew 22:36-40

    King James Version

    36 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.

    40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    Love is powerful. God is love.

    If you look carefully you will see there is a subtle play of words in what Alex is saying. The lie in the garden is proven in the admissions of Alex and Earl assuming deity. Be warned everyone, their teaching is heresy on display and spiritual blindness on their part. A little truth will never cover a great lie.

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Do men validate the lie of Satan in the garden and call it truth? Yes.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Genesis 1:2, 3: "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."

    In these verses, we already see the Triune God at work. 1. We have God the Creator & Sustainer of all things. 2. We also see His Spirit "moving upon the face of the waters": that part of the Godhead that went out to do a work (we are not told). 3. Then we have God speak for the creation of light: "And God said..". This is His Word that is part of Who God is. Thus we see God, as He has revealed Himself to us, as a Triune God, and if any part of that divinity was missing, He would cease to be God.

    You are a trinity: a body, a soul & a spirit. If one part of your trinity was missing, you would either cease to be human, or maybe a sub-human.

    God chose to send out His Word to His people Israel: "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high" (Hebrews 1:1-3).

    Did you catch it? God sent out His Word to Israel, then sent out His Word to us through His Son (Who also shared in His Glory, in His Image & involved in the creative Work (also see Colossians 1:15-17)). This Word was made flesh for our sakes, He gave us God's Message & then laid down His Life for us. This is God's Word declared to you - if you choose to believe what you do, then you have to deny the Truth of His Word & make your appeal to some other source.
