  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 63:1
    Maribell, I believe that the Devil created evil by his first action to oppose God. Jesus said in 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." This verse tells us that from the very beginning the Devil's sinful condition & existence was evident.

    Also read Ezekiel 28:12-19 & particularly verse 15, "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." Though this discourse is directed to the King of Tyrus, it clearly has a strong reference to the wicked spirit within the heart of the King (read from verse 2) that has its root in the Devil (formerly an anointed cherub in Heaven).

    We don't understand the mechanics of the actual start of evil since something pure (e.g. a glass of clean water) doesn't magically become dirty unless something dirty is added to it. But we believe that in spite of the Cherub's purity in his creation by God, something entered his 'heart' to want oppose his Creator, to be like God (pride), to be disobedient & to start his own following of angels that sinned with him. And aren't these the very reasons for Adam & Eve's downfall & all of mankind? We are disobedient & want to believe that we are 'demi gods' who are equipped with God's Wisdom & Power & can do anything we want, even in opposition to God's Will & Design. Yet, we soon find that we fall woefully short of perfection & the Devil himself knows that he can never be like God & will one day have to pay eternally for his wickedness & leading so many people into Hell with him. That's why God in His great Love sent His pure Son to save us & forever defeat the works of the Devil in us.

    Will people be saved during the great tribulation? I heard a minister say that anyone left on earth after the rapture are finished.

    Thanks
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 7:10
    Brian, first of all, there is only one earth. God created the earth with a Purpose and that Purpose is Christ (Colossians 1:16). Everything happened here. With respect to the days of creation, St. Augustine and many of the Church Fathers questioned whether the 6 Days of Creation were literal 24 hour days. In Genesis 2:5-9, for example, tells us plants and trees took time to grow. God, we are also told, planted a garden in Eden. The implication is that planting, watering and cultivating a garden takes time. So the question is, do we do Scripture justice by insisting that God created everything in 6 literal days?

    The Days of Genesis are probably more than likely periods time, phases of development, stages. This is not a new thought. What has confused many is the fear of accepting that the word 'Day' is not literal. Many Christians fear God will not be happy with them and think admitting it is tantamount to denying the infallibility of Scripture.

    But take a peek at Hebrews 3-4. There Paul explicitly tells us that we are still in the 7th Day of God's Rest. And that Day will come to an end at the coming of Christ. So, if the 7th Day can be 6,000 years old, why can't the 1st Day be as long? Now, St. Augustine believed God created us imperfect (able to die, experience pain and suffer). We were supposed, he said, to work our way into Paradise. But when man disobeyed, he failed to perform the works that would lead him to Paradise.

    What I want everyone to think about is that God created everything that exists, not for its own enjoyment or road to Paradise. God created for Christ to enter creation to eradicate, annihilate, destroy and put an end to corruption (physical, moral, spiritual), pain, suffering, evil, death and to establish eternal perfection in all things God creates. That is why God stopped creating on the 7th Day, to resume creating a new earth and universe, after His Purpose for this existence is accomplished in Christ, who is the Tree of Life.

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Luke 7:23
    Jesus tells us plainly 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.

    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? (first the tares WEEDS get gathered, wheat last)

    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.
  • Greg on Luke 7:23
    Kags,

    If the feet of the Messiah do not touch the earth at His return, how do you explain Zechariah 14:4?

    "And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south."

    Also, if the body of Christ is taken out before the Tribulation, then who are those that endure until the end? (Mark 13:27, 1 Corinthians 15:52)

    He that endureth to the END shall be saved (Matthew 10:22)

    So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, (Mark 13:49)

    Are we not told that it "is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully" (1 Peter 2:19).

  • Eric - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    The restrainer was the Roman empire. That is why Paul in the letter does not say it but when he was with them in person, he did tell them who it was, read verse 5. And who came after the Roman empire? Who opposes the doctrine of God on earth and declares to have authority even over the Word of God, who declares to forgive sins when they are confessed to him, when only God can forgive our sins. Google the name Vicar of Christ and you will know.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    Kags is right the Holy Spirit is not the restrainer who leaves earth. Otherwise no one would be saved and no one would preach via the Holy Spirit. The resurrection is at the end of the tribulation for those without itching ears.

    Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

    In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.

    there is not a last trump prior to the tribulation. Trump and Trumpet mean the same thing.

  • Believers yoked to Unbelievers Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 13:10
    We have the New, better covenant through Jesus now.

    2 Corinthians Chapter 6:14-16. *****NT

    Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

    And what concord hath Christ with Belial (Satan) or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel (someone who does not take care of their family).

    And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    We're not fighting against "ITES" i.e. Hittites, Jebusites, Amorites, etc

    This is New Testament and the concern is born again believers being married to, or partying with sinful unbelievers.

    That's why our House of Representatives feels safe forcing churches to close for corona virus; but it's ok for bars to open and serve. Who's wrong here? The church or the virus?

    God wants us to be born again and saved from the darkening world we live in today.
  • Kags - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    George, yet 100% accurate.

    Some believe it is the Holy Spirit that is the restrainer. But the Holy Spirit has always been here. And He will be here during the tribulation. How else will the 144,000 Jewish believers preach the gospel of the Kingdom during it? And many will believe in that day. The restrainer is the body of Christ ( the church ). God will not pour out His judgement and wrath on His body of believers. It is sad that people think that He will. When He has already showed that He won't with Noah and Lot. Was Lot a righteous man? Yes, because he believed in God. That was his righteousness and that is why God saved him from his judgement on Sodom. Learn from the past
  • Kags - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    Chris, the rapture is not Christ coming to the earth. We will meet Him in the air. He does not come down and touch the earth. And the tribulation is the wrath and judgement of God on the earth. Believers are taken away before this cause God will not pour out his wrath of judgement on his body of believers.

    Paul told us to comfort one another with these words. How is it comforting to know that we are going to be going thru the judgement of God during the tribulation? That is a contradictory of scripture if you believe that.
  • Kags - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    John Madden, If the Holy Spirit lives inside of every believer, then how can the Holy Spirit leave to let the antichrist come and do his business? The body of Christ is the restrainer. God will not pour out his wrath on His body of believers. Did he pour out his judgement on Noah? Or on sinful Lot? Nope

    It saddens me to see that people think that God is going to pour out His wrath and judgement on his believers. When He has shown us that He won't do that. Think about it
  • Kags - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    So who is the restrainer that keeps the antichrist from coming right now? Cause the antichrist would have been here all along if it wasn't for the restrainer that God has put on the earth. So who is the restrainer?
  • Kags - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    This is how I read it as well. The restrainer is the body of Christ. God will not pour out his wrath on his body of believers. Did God pour out his wrath on Lot? Did He pour it out on Noah? No in both cases. Learn from His past judgements.
  • Kags - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2
    The apostles did not go to the whole world and preach. Only Paul preached to the gentiles. He is the apostle to the gentiles. The Jews didn't want anything to do with the gentiles. So your answer is very wrong. The tribulation is the 70th week of Danial. No mistaking it
  • Jesse - in Reply on Luke 7:23
    Carolyn,

    Jesus said it is not meet, that is, it is not right to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. Now what if your pastor called you a dog? You know, "Get out of my way you dog!"



    But here is what Jesus was referring to:



    You see, the Jews considered Gentiles to be dogs. To the Jews, Gentiles were considered "religious dogs." So Jesus is saying it is not right to take the children's food and give it to the dogs.



    But look at the piety of this woman in Verse 27: Remember that this Gentile woman was coming to Jesus to help her daughter.



    And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.



    This is the piety of this woman, her humbleness, her submission. It is not the fact that she wouldn't take no for an answer. She needed help!



    But the Lord was putting her in a situation so that it would show her motives. You know, how much do you want help for your daughter?

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Malachi 3
    Well the tithe was to support the Priest tribe of Levi in the old testament.

    Numbers 18:24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.

    It was to support the tribe that did the work of the Lord for the Tabernacle.

    TV preachers who claim you must tithe, to them of course, should MUST prove that they are of the tribe of Levi and are worthy to receive the tithe on behalf of the Lord. IF NOT send them nothing. If they are not of Levi then you are not tithing.

    Jesus never said anything about losing salvation over tithes and neither did the apostles.

    I suggest you ask the wife to show where this is since I can not find this doctrine.

    Offerings yes and they were to be given willingly as one felt led.

    Should we help the less fortunate or buy Jet fuel for the TV preachers Lear Jet?

    Jet fuel is sure expensive as is the upkeep on mansions.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Malachi 3
    William,

    You are correct. Salvation is by the grace of God. It is God who saves us and it is God who keeps us saved. We can't keep ourselves saved. We have to ask ourselves who are we trusting in as far as our salvation goes? Are we trusting in our own human work and effort, or are we trusting in God? If our salvation or loss of is dependent upon what we do or do not do, then it is no more of grace. There is nothing that reverse our physical birth, and there is nothing that can reverse our Spiritual birth. If it were not for the power of God's grip and His power to keep me saved, my flesh would walk away right now. So again, we have to ask, are we trusting in our fleshly work to keep us saved, or are we trusting in God's power? I know who I'm trusting. And apart from Him and His power to keep me, I'm a goner! Salvation cannot be lost. Salvation is all of God. The only thing I contributed to my salvation was the sin from which I needed to be saved from. Hopefully your wife will come to know that her salvation is not dependent upon what she does or does not do, but upon the power and grace of God. Jesus has taken up residence in my life and He promised that He will never leave me. So if He never leaves me, which He has promised, then I have eternal life because I have Christ, an He is eternal. I hope this helps. God bless!!!

    Peace and grace.

    (v12)

    Women can testify (Jo4, 20:17).

    Woman can pray and prophecy with her head covered (1Cor11).

    Aged women can teach young women (Titus 2).

    A mother can teach her children (Proverbs 1:8).

    But to teach the man and to have authority over him, she is not allowed, because the man was first formed, and the woman was deceived (v12-14).

    See what Jesus says to the church in Thyatira (Revelation 2:20).

    What Paul teaches here, he teaches in every church, everywhere (1 Corinthians 4:17).

    We don't endure sound doctrine and are turned to fables (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

    The Word is Scripture inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16).

    I may ask, who bewitched us, that we should not obey the truth? (Galatians 3:1).

  • Scriptures on Grace and Mercy on Psalms 103
    Good Samaritan Luke 10:30-47

    The Poor and Needy; Matthew 25:35-40

    For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat:

    I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink:

    I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

    Naked, and ye clothed me:

    I was sick, and ye visited me:

    I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

    Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

    When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

    Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

    And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ME.
  • Greg - in Reply on James 1
    Stanjett,

    Is Christmas always on a Sunday? No

    Is your birthday on the same day every year? No

    Why is Saturday always the 7th day? Because we are told so.

    The Gregorian Calendar that we follow does not allow for Saturday to consistently be the 7th day.
