    Where else in the Bible does Psalms 91 verse 7 repeat itself
  • Jesse - in Reply on Acts 2:4
    Albert,

    Can you please clarify your statement: "Baptism is necessary for salvation. If it were not necessary, then Jesus would not have allowed John to baptize Him."

    It looks like you are saying that Jesus needed to be baptized for salvation? There was a reason why Jesus was baptized, but it had nothing to do with salvation.
  • Greg - in Reply on Revelation 6
    Bob Hilt,

    Our job is to love and teach, not judge.

    The disdain you have for our brothers (the Jews) is palpable.

    If the Jews are cursed, what do we do with Acts 28:26-28?

    Do we believe what Luke says?

    Last I checked, those that killed the prophets "SAY THEY ARE JEWS, AND ARE NOT, BUT ARE THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN" (Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9).

    "SAY THEY ARE JEWS, AND ARE NOT"

    "SAY THEY ARE JEWS, AND ARE NOT"

    Do we believe the words of John?

    People can say they believe in anything they want. Show me your works and I will see your faith!

    The JEWISH high priest appointed by the Roman Governor that condemned Jesus was "of the synagogue of Satan," not a Jew.

    You say "ALL Jews deny Jesus and that makes them antichrist;" again, I would refer you to (Acts 28:26-28).

    What about Muslims, Hindus, etc.? They deny God AND Jesus.

    Jews follow God. Last I checked, that was Jesus' Father also.

    As far as most of the Jews being from Eastern Europe and Russia, I am not sure the point you are trying to make.

    Most of us don't know our ancestry more than a few generations.

    How do you really know your ancestors aren't from Europe or Russia; and could have even been Jewish!

  • Adolf Talanay on Genesis 2:9
    And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:9 ...my question is, why did God put the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the midst of the garden? why would God allow it?

    Revelation 18:21 - And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. .....

    ......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.

    babylon was responsible for the BLOOD of PROPHETS.

    Revelation 16:6 - For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

    Revelation 17:6 - And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

    Mystery Babylon killed the prophets

    Jesus speaking Luke 13:33 - Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

    for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

    Jesus - 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! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

    the two witnesses of God are mentioned here:

    Revelation 11:8 - And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

    Jesus, MY LORD was crucified in JERUSALEM, which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt. NOT Rome or in Mecca or the USA

    Do we believe Jesus or commentaries?

    How about Paul?

    Paul writes in 1 Thess 2:14, 16 - For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, EVEN AS THEY HAVE OF THE JEWS: WHO BOTH KILLED THE LORD JESUS, and their OWN PROPHETS, and have persecuted us; and THEY PLEASE NOT GOD, ....

    Babylon Jerusalem killed prophets
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Revelation 6
    The Bible definition of an ANTICHRIST. 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. (ALL Jews deny Jesus and that makes them antichrist, if they believed in Jesus then they would be CHRISTIANS. IF you do not believe me call any Synagogue and ask them if Jesus is the Messiah.)

    1 John 2:23 - Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

    If Jews do not accept Jesus as messiah, then who is their messiah? SATAN?

    1 Corinthians 16:22 - If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema (CURSED) Maranatha.

    DO JEWS LOVE JESUS OR ARE THEY CURSED?

    Did you know most of the self identified "Jews" in the Israeli state are from Eastern Europe and Russia?

    they are indeed.

  • SHAKE OUT A MIRACLE - in Reply
    You can keep someone lifted up in front of Gods throne. I believe these verses show that Gods thoughts toward us; can turn us back.

    Jeremiah 29

    11 For I know the thoughts that I THINK toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

    13 And ye shall seek me, and find Me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

    I believe in the prayers of mothers and grandparents! My grandmother sent me love letters with scriptures, saying Jesus loves me and so did she. I would remember those letters.

    An angel woke me from hangover every morning saying: if you don't stop, you will leave your child without one parent.

    Yes I believe in Prodigal sons and daughters. The Bible says he CAME TO HIS SENSES. He was face down fixing to eat hog food. He had nothing left except need. Every step on that road screamed defeat, stupid, loser! (The Accuser). He made it to Daddy. ABBA.

    I'm praying hard for some people who are the hardest heads and hearts I know. We have to shake Heaven with our prayers! I know some day I am going to receive a good report. I know it! I know it I know it!

    Those altars they have in Israel are solid. I can see it in scripture. Well we need to grab on it, lay on it, soak it in tears, sleep beside it; wake up and shake Heaven again.

    Did John the Baptist pray? Red letters>

    Matthew 11:12 ...the Kingdom of Heaven suffers Violence, and the Violent TAKE IT BY FORCE.

    Jesus said that. IF we want to shake out a blessing; get with it. Grab onto the horns of that altar and give birth to a miracle.

    God knew what He was getting when He came to my house on Yom Kippur and broke into my sinful, drugged up, alcohol hazed life. He killed my life of sin and raised up a servant.

    We can shake Heaven in our prayer life. Get in the closet. No canned prayers! Pray your heart. Holy Spirit help me to pray!
  • Joe Bell on Joel 2
    Joel 2:1-11 describes the 6th trumpet, day of the Lord strike on America/Mystery Babylon. How does a 2,700 year old prophet describe a smart missile attack so accurately? They don't break ranks, they climb up the wall and enter in at the windows like a thief. Jesus said he comes like a thief. All faces will be pained. There are 90 scriptures that describe this event known as "the abomination of desolation", set in America. Is 13, Is 24, Is 21, Ez 21, Ez 38:1-17, Jeremiah 50/51, Revelation 18. In the same hour America falls, Israel is invaded and taken captive (Luke 21:20-24). This is prophesy. This is anti-Christ's rule.
  • Teresa Townsend on Psalms 91:7
    Is there someone and the Book of Matthews that says the exact same thing as Psalms 91 and 7
  • Adam - in Reply
    I think the scriptures discussed here are probably Hebrews 6:4-6, 2 Peter 2:20-22, Hebrews 10:26, Matthew 5:13 suggesting that in some cases Christians can't return to the faith once they leave and denounce it. Maybe some of this could be referring to blasphemy of the holy ghost? Matthew 12:31-32.

    But James 5:20 suggests that you can return to the faith, as well as the prodigal son story. The forgiving 7x70 story sounds like a huge amount of forgiveness is allotted to us, as long as we forgive others: Matthew 18:35.

    What do you think?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Revelation 8
    Jesus is God is not a figure of speech 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."

    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. GOD WITH US.

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

    Genesis 1:27 - So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    Genesis 9:6 - Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

    So IF one man is Body, Soul and Spirit which is 3 parts and God made man in HIS IMAGE

    How many parts is God? 3? a Godhead? or trinity?

    1 Thessalonians 5:23 - And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Paul says spirit and soul and body)

    Isaiah 10:18 - And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standardbearer fainteth. (Body and Soul different)

    Matthew 10:28 - Jesus said: And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. ..........destroy both soul and body in hell.

    Isaiah 26:9 - With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. (Soul and Spirit are different)

    Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, ....
  • The Reason for Creation - in Reply on Genesis 1:17
    Have a beautiful day loving Gods creation.

    Romans 1 says that God made all this so we could see Him.

    Even the human body is so unique and intricate, medical people can see that Someone all powerful had to of made humans.

    With the same care , God made flowers.

    All we see is supposed to turn our eyes off the fake, and get our eyes onto the CREATOR.

    And yet in following verses, the Bible says that people will look out of their unseeing eyes; and NOT see the Creator.

    It says they are WITHOUT EXCUSE.

    Always say a little prayer for God to open their eyes so they can see what you do:

    A Creator that loves them well.

  • Gods Blessings Thrown Away - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1:2
    Genesis 25-27. Tells the story of Esau and Jacob. Jacob and Rebekah worked together to cheat Esau out of his birthright as elder son. Esau made it easy because he'd rather have a bowl of stew than his birthright.

    They got the birthright and Isaacs blessing.

    It seems wrong but Esau had no regard for those things until he realized what He had done. It says God hated Esau for the treachery. This doesn't sanction cheating and treachery. It teaches that when God gives you a blessing, don't throw it away on something temporal.

    The Bible tells us that children are. Blessing from God, too. Amazing.
  • Bob Grove on 2 Timothy 3:5
    They have been deceived with a counterfeit gospel .

    Jesus said many will come in his name .

    You must read the bible for yourself with the help of the Holy Spirit or you will be deceived by men. Read Matthew 24 Why I say this ? Because the spirit of truth will lead you into All truth . Men can not do this .

    Also there is a spirit of Antichrist, and it opposes the truth . Not all spirits although real are good or from God . You must be able to identify them . It's all in the bible .
  • Eric - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    Am glad you quoted that Bob, because on my second paragraph it shows that Rome teach doctrines of men and neglect the word of God. Like replacing Sabbath with Sunday, they claim it's a mark of their authority.

    Baptism of Children, Christ sent His disciples to preach and that them that believe to be baptised, Matthew 28:19, so how can you preach to a toddler?

    They teach that you are saved by works yet the Bible teaches that you are saved by grace, an example of this is the Scala Sancta, read about it.

    The Pope calls himself Pontifex Maximus, the bridge builder. This title was used Emperors of ancient pagan Rome where they were worshipped as gods.

  • John L - in Reply on Revelation 8
    Darlene,

    Concerning Jesus and God being two separate entities.

    Very well explained.

    God and Jesus are NOT the same entity.

    John 10:30

    "I and My Father are One"

    The word "One" is the Greek word "hen" and is given in the neutral form of speech. This means that they are one in "essence" not one person, which would be in the masculine form of speech, and would use the Greek word "heis."

    If the words of John 10:30 are to be taken literally, what do people that believe this do with John 10:29 (as well as ALL other verses, including the ones you mention)?

    "My Father,which gave them Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father's hand."

    I suppose this means "I, which gave them Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My hand."

    And John 10:30 would have to read; "I and Myself are One."

    Seems like a lot of explaining has to be done here for these statements to make sense if God is Jesus and Jesus is God.

    And please don't try and say that Jesus is God in flesh. Again, the understanding of figures of speech must be taken account for.

    I would not want to be in the unenviable position of trying to uphold a position as truth while I am denying proper grammar and plain Scripture that is using OBVIOUS figures of speech.

    Not a page of the word of God can be turned without the use of Figures of Speech."

    Figures of speech are a LEGAL part of English grammar that follow rules, not something that is arbitrarily used by the reader whenever he or she feels the urge.

    Taking literal what God states as figurative and taking figurative what God is states is literal is a fundamental reason why people misunderstand the word of God.

  • Linda Elmore on Wisdom of Solomon 1:2
    I would like to help a friend who is involved in disciplinary action against a member of a (very) large organization whose members all love the game of duplicate bridge. There are all levels of proficiency among the membership from professional (all levels again) to rank beginners. The activity the cheater engaged in had not been even possible before the virus and all sanctioned play is online, and this outed and confessed cheater is a professional. My friend is asking for advice and I turned to thinking of Solomon, wondering if I could find some wisdom there to pass on to my friend. I am thinking perhaps the cheater herself should be involved in her judgment.......I feel it is very important for the future of this organization that is truly very important in MANY peoples' lives.

    Thanks for reading this. I know it is confidential, which is important to me. Maybe (probably not in your "wheelhouse") you cannot help, but just writing this is an exercise that may help me in my advice to my friend. Many thanks!!

  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 14
    I think we just need to read at a snails pace and really chew on what you're reading. If there's center of the page columns, I stop and read those too.

    Sometimes I take notes. What is God telling me? If you study alongside the Holy Spirit, you can ask Him if this pertains to me? Someone I know? Believers? Un-believers?

    This website has a commentary box below the Search box. Pull up your verse; click on it to highlight it. Just scroll down till you see the Commentary, open and read what it says about your verse.

    I looked at your verse and it was a genealogy page. Is that what you wrote?
  • Peace In The Office mishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    I used to get to work before everyone else and spray doorknobs and phones I used during the day. Wear your mask if you want to. They can't see your face :D. If you get there first, you can get your pile of work and put it on your desk. Avoid eye contact with work robbers. Keep your work quota high as you can. Then ask the boss for more work. Smile.

    By law you get 2 breaks a day. Combine bathroom then.

    Determine the rules and work within them.

    This one woman was an inspiration to me: every time someone tried to engage her opinion in an argument, she'd smile like an angel to everyone without answering and return to her work. Everyone would shuffle away confused what to do with that.

    Remember Marilyn. That was her name.

    (Ask what would Marilyn do :D)

    These are small sacrifices on your part, but they work. Once a month bring in a dozen donuts and leave them in the coffee room. Keep one on your desk so they know you brought them. If you get there early you can get a big mug of coffee. I brought mine from home cause I'm picky.

    Be friendly like Jesus; but kind of no nonsense like Peter. Never share any personal information about yourself.

    When you walk in early, under your breath pray: I pray the presence of Jesus in this room and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. Thank you Jesus :)

    When it goes south some days: in a whisper: I plead the Blood of Jesus against all demonic influences and command them to depart to dry places. In Jesus name. GO!

    God can hear your mind talking, so when your Boss is being bossy and unfair: plead the blood of Jesus over the entire conversation. Have faith ok? He hears you and knows you need an assist. You're gonna see miracles. Get ready.
  • Drunken Neighbors Sharp Job Hunting - in Reply on Revelation 12
    I'm sorry you are having these problems. Find a working security camera and park in front of it. Call the police and ask them to enforce noise ordinance. You don't really have to give your name but they'll see your phone number. If they get called enough they'll talk to the manager. Hopefully the maintenance person is tired of picking up the litter :/

    Move when your lease is about to expire, if you can. (Get the place spotless before that)

    You didn't say if you're a Christian? If you are you can ASK God to send some angels to watch over all your property and protect all that concerns you. And Give you favor with the police.

    I'll ask the Lord to give you His favor in finding work.

    Get your resume current with past history, phone #s, etc. Don't fill in the date. Make copies. Take a selfie (smile) & go to Walgreens and get copies to put on the resume. Drive around companies & note which ones have lots of cars in the lot. Make a list. I'd get out and walk through and claim a parking spot in Jesus name. Be cool. Interviews: answer questions, keep it brief and no personal stories unless asked. Don't gush. Be friendly, unclinch your body language. Handshake before leaving. Make eye contact. NO Strong cologne.

    You glorify God and start thanking Him for favor and opportunities EVERY time you think about it. Turn off the tv an hour every day and read Ecclesiastes or Proverbs. Great tips for success in those. You're ready!!

    Come back and let me know how it goes.

  • The Mystery - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    I can't explain this Mystery God is personally undertaking. I feel strongly not to judge. I preach for "Gentiles to get in now." Do what God says to be doing now: armor on, wedding dress packed, lamps full of Holy Spirits oil. Assist with "Ark loading".

    I pray for you to be a worker in the Harvest. You know lots; like Paul. It's up to you to figure out what part you play in this mystery? Do you have a testimony? I've never heard anything. You know mine.

    Prayer room stays full and I think a lot of them aren't saved. Are they saved? Has any preacher taught them the basics? See..I can't argue about this mystery that can't be defined. But if the Holy Spirit says hop to it: I'll hop every time. :)

  • Jesse - in Reply
    Flossy Ann,

    I do not believe that God is just watching, waiting for you to die, so He can condemn you. He may be watching and waiting, but maybe He is waiting for you to fully surrender your life to Him in order that He can work out His will in your life. Have you considered that? There is nothing we go through in this life that God cannot fix. But it takes complete surrender and trust in Him. It's one thing to seek Him, but another to surrender your life to Him and give Him complete control. That's not the easiest thing to do but that is something that must be done in order for Him to work in your life.

    There are many people here that can help you. There are many here who care about you. We may not know you personally, but we can still say we love you and care about you. I care about you and I love you. I am not speaking of a human love. I am speaking of the love of Christ. It's His love, and He is persuading me to share it with you. And all those here who care about you and your spiritual welfare can say they love you because it is Christ in us that gives us that type of love, and it is through Him that we can truly say we love you and are concerned for you. So perhaps Christ giving us that love and care to share with you would demonstrate that He does care about you. Jesus works through His people to reach out to others to share His love with them. I ask of you that if you've not surrendered to Him to please do so. He's watching you, and He is waiting. He's waiting to help you. All He expects from you is trust and faithfulness to Him.
  • Carleton on Genesis 2:9
    1 Corinthians 9:24-27

    Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run that you may obtain.

    And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things, Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.

    I therefore so run, not as uncertainty, so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

    But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Samaria was the capital of Northern Israel during the split of Judah and Israel after Solomon died. The Samaritan woman at the well was an Israelite also.

    John Chapter 4

    5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

    6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about the sixth hour.

    7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

    8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

    9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

    10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

    11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

    12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? (the woman said Jacob [Israel] was her Father and Jesus never corrected her)

    Art thou greater than OUR FATHER JACOB (who was Israel)

    13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

    She was indeed an Israelite who was of divorced Israel

    Jeremiah 3:8

    "And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also."

    God divorced Israel, not Judah.

    Jeremiah 31:31

    "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:"

    Israel AND Judah both
