    Hello Jan, I still don't understand what you assume is a contradiction?

    Hi Derek , I suspect that many people , not necessarily those on this web site but more likely atheists , don't realize that we are all going to die one day . Of course the vast majority of us don't want to for various reasons , me ? I love my other half sooo much , I can't bear the thought of being parted from him , so as long as he is alive I want to be also . However , I also realize that it's not up to me . I have almost died on more than one occasion . Before I had met my husband I didn't really care either way . Now I want to stay with him . If he goes before me I shall wait my turn . Our lives are in God's hands . We are alive because He permits it . As Christians we should not fear death , Christ's return to earth is as close to us as the day of our death . I believe that when I die I will cease to exist . I won't know anything untill I'm woken up and my Saviour is here to judge me and hopefully allow me to live with him forever in His Father's Kingdom on earth . Oh happy day , may God bless us all with the return of Christ and an end to all human ignorance fear and oppression very soon .

    The vaccine is killing people. Have you not seen the VAERS database? Check openvaers dot com and see for yourself. I don't think pushing a dangerous experimental injection that has already killed more than 14000 in the US is helpful to anyone. More than 600000 injuries- many permanent. This is only in the US. Likely over a million have died wordwide with countless millions of injuries. This is a health crisis caused by what people are falsely assuming is a safe vaccine. The vaccinated are the ones spreading the virus they call delta, because it compromised their immune system. Beware of lies you hear in the media and repeating them. Most vaccines require 5-10 years studying to properly deem safe. This thing you're pushing isn't that. Your God given immune system is best- eat right and exercise. Ivermectin won the Nobel Peace prize for how effective it is against infection, as well as safe. It far superior to the 'vaccine' and is safe and FDA approved for decades, with 40 years of data supporting it. I just can't believe people are following this group think of lies and false assumptions to lead them to hurt each other.

    Is that you Mishael ? You don't have to confirm or deny , I think I recognise your heart . Much love in Christ .
  • Derek - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    I'm shocked that few people ever mention the thousands deaths caused by the injection, and the countless injuries- many permanent- from it. I don't know if someone is just blindly believing the 'news' that claims it's 'safe' or if they are indeed aware of the VAERS database and are aware of just how many it's killed and injured but don't care?! Does it make sense to intentionally risk death in order to avoid having a risk of death? But sadly even if you don't die, it doesn't work very well either, in fact you're worse off- so many people hospitalized and spreading the virus are 'vaccinated'. Of course the bullies want to portray a certain narrative so they will cherry pick stats to make it 'seem' like the opposite is true. This must be a strong delusion as spoken about in the Bible. I've never seen so many people in fear over something that's less dangerous than the flu. The death count posted on the news is a lie. They've been counting normal deaths from normal causes- like old age, obesity, heart disease, respiratory disease. They even call a % of deaths from the vaccine if 14 days or less from the injection as 'unvaccinated deaths' to continue to the lie. This is pretty evil sick stuff we've never seen before. Your God given immune system works great, especially if you take care of the body God loaned you by eating right and exercise. And for added protection you can ensure your vitamin D levels are up and if you do feel sick HCQ or Ivermectin has proven VERY effective with no downsides from thousands of trials over decades. They both are FDA approved, unlike the covid injection where they only 'approved' one for emergency use under a different name- one you can't even get. It's all part of the lie the pharma companies are making billions from. Very evil. Please, don't force the death injection on anyone. If you trust God, don't live in fear and take care of His body He loaned you and you'll be better off than if you took the death injection.

    Hearing the truth, Hearing the goodness that flows, is more important than not hearing it. When we do not hear the truth, when any sense of reality is not available, then we are subject unto the powers that be. The visions we have been given are not from above, but from beneath. So then, what should be our place in these things that we do not understand? A contrite spirit, a love for the gospel, the word of God. This is where the wisdom is from above and not from beneath. The visions then become His and not yours. Abiding in Him always, trying the spirits, even living among them! This is the living water, He speaks of. water we cannot live without!

    The woman at the well, much like most, sees things carnally. What she can see, touch, and hear. In the heat of another day, She finds herself carrying more water than she would like! Can you here Her saying there must be a better way? Like Many, we too, are resolved to except what we see, and hear, as the truth, only wondering what might be? Some have no hope, while looking toward another day of no hope!. Mistakes made, unresolved issues, living in the past! Some having given up all hope, stumbling, falling, suddenly in fear! Meeting Jesus, is what we all need! The past can be intimidating, preventing us from moving toward Him. Sin will do that, it will prevent us from moving forward! Prevent you from taking the water He is giving! This water we need everyday is His words, His jesters, hearing what He says! This living water is yours and mine , free for the taking! All you have to do is drink! If you listen you will hear Him! You will hear Him when He speaks, He comes in ways , in people who know Him, and who are drinking this water! If you will listen ,you will hear! Repent and be baptized
  • Chris - in Reply on Ephesians 6
    Hello Maria. As you know, the letter was written by the Apostle Paul to the Christians at Ephesus. As Paul related the correct behaviour of children & fathers to each other (in verses 1-4), he also speaks to servants. The Greek word here is 'Douloi', which is correctly applied to 'slaves'. However, I think that word can also refer to bond-servants, or those in such employ working for their masters, in a voluntary or paid capacity. I'm unsure how prevalent such a strict slave/master position existed in those days, though I'm sure that there were those who were in such employ; remember Onesimus & Philemon, in the letter to Philemon?.

    So, in Ephesians chapter 6:5-9, Paul is speaking to those who were in servitude to their masters & also he spoke to those masters who were believers - how both should behave one toward the other. You can also look at 1 Peter 2:18-21, for the Apostle Peter's similar dealing with this matter. So, these passages cannot apply to a husband/wife relationship, where the bond together in marriage is of a deep shared love, commitment & sacrifice, rather than of an eight hour paid employment situation.

    So Paul instructs such servants to be obedient to their masters, giving them due honour & respect with all seriousness (fear & trembling), & with singleness of heart (i.e. with a heart & mind to give the best service you can) - as one would strive to fully obey & in work, for the Lord. And Peter gives us another view of this relationship: if the servant/slave is wrongfully treated or falsely accused, he should take the wrong even if he is innocent in the matter. So, yes, you need to obey your boss, giving him due respect & doing your work as best you can for him & the company. If he is 'worth his salt', he will notice your exemplary behaviour & likewise treat you fairly & reward you. As well, your Christian witness by your work ethics will speak volumes to him & others in his employ.

    Mishael, did this Messiah come and did he have a name?
  • Maria Gabrielle on Ephesians 6
    Not sure about verse 5, calling upon servants to obey our masters of the flesh. I can relate if, for instance, the master is the husband & the wife is his servant and/or in relation to the Parent-Child relationship. I mean, I obey my boss at work, but not "with fear & trembling".

    Thoughts??
  • Rick - in Reply on 1 Samuel 12
    Sonny In response to walking by the Spirit how long do you think a person can go with every action, thought, motive, be done out of pure love and you have answered your question, because pure love is the love of God. 1 Corinthians 13 It is known as Charity or the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation.

  • Rick - in Reply on 1 Samuel 12
    Sonny schepers The whosever in 3:16 literally means everyone that believes jew or gentile i.e. anyone who believes, world is kosmos meaning arrangement or beauty so the world subject to Romans 8:22 All of creation was made subject to vanity will be delivered in the very end. Look at 3:17 For God sent not his son to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved. It is Gods will to deliver not to condemn. Choice is you either believe or you don't.

  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Hello, I'd like to respond to what you wrote: "when the order in which they created things is contradictory"

    The order isn't contradictory. Is it possible you are intepreting it in a certain way where you perceive it to be contradictory? Because it's not contradictory when I read it, nor has it ever been.

    You wrote: "it's not the validity of the Bible I dispute, but the interpretation of it."

    I can only guess as to why would choose to interpret it a certain way that doesn't seem to line up. I know from past experience others made assumptions about how information is presented. For example, it's common in books to have a summary or thesis statement in the beginning then go into detail and explain it thereafter. Let's say you told me you were in a car wreck then said someone side swiped you. Then I respond by saying "What?! You were in 2 wrecks? You were in a car wreck THEN were side swiped, that's hard to believe. Be honest, were you in 1 or 2 wrecks?"

    Is it possible that when you read in the begining God created the heavens and earth, etc that you didn't interpret that as a summary statement, but an event that happened and ended, then when it says God created Adam, that you assumed it was at a different time and not simply the same event explained in more detail?

    God bless...
  • Ronald L Whittemore - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Hey Jan,

    The Bible does not contradict itself; the traditions of men do. When we read with all those preconceived ideas and traditions, we cannot hear the Holy Spirit of truth. I am sure the word just popped out telling you this does not match. Jesus busted the Pharisees, (Mark 7:4-9), traditions are of man. The tradition of Adam and Eve being the first humans is a tradition.

    I am not of the group of a world before this one and it was destroyed, but you are correct the six days do not line up with the second chapter with Adam and Eve. The purpose of Adam is what gets lost, was it to start humankind or the start of the plan of our salvation, being the first Adam and Jesus the last Adam to undo the works of Satan. Due to the flood, we are all descendants of Adam.

    Things to look at, the word earth, h-'-re #776 meaning earth, land, countries. And field, the word field ( ha--eh). Strongs #7704 meaning; field, land, agriculture. All the plants in day three were self-producing no cultivation needed. Second chapter it had not rained because there was not a man to till the ground. These were plants of the field, you must plant and till a garden or it will not grow, (husbandry).

    The animals in chapter two were of the field (domesticated), the fowls were out of the ground (domesticated) not out of the water as day five. This clearly is another creation and one would have to deny or ignore what scripture clearly says to fit a tradition.

    Man, male and female in day six were told be fruitful, multiply and replenish (to fill) the earth, subdue it and have dominion over all thee earth that God had created. Adam and Eve were in the garden, could they do what was told man in day six? No. If we say it was after they were cast out of the garden could God say at the end of day six all was very good? No. Adam and Eve sinned and they did not multiply until they were cast out of the garden.

    I know this is not a lot of info but may it help.

  • WHO GOD SENDS HIS DISCIPLES TO - in Reply
    Jesus was sent to the Jews first. As he said to the woman who said: even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table.

    The 12 Disciples followed Jesus.

    After Jesus ascended to Heaven, the Disciples went to the upper room to wait for the Day of Pentecost.

    After they received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, they were now anointed to minister to Jews and Gentiles.

    Paul was sent, to the Gentiles. He had the background to understand all cultures he would encounter in his ministry. At times some of Jesus's original disciples traveled with Paul. Jews, Romans and Gentiles etc were being born again.

    No matter how modern organized religion attempts to separate and confine Jesus's Church; the Church will survive and thrive. There are missionaries all over this globe. Pray for them.

    Satellite TV is even used to spread the anointed gospel to every place on earth. God will not be confined to mankind's dictates on what He can and cannot do. If we wanted to help buy a receiver for a poor village, that would surely be blessed.

    This comment room exists to equip and grow up believers sent to the highways and byways (remote places). God does the anointing. He's using this format.

    If we become ICABOD due to excessive arguing and mixed up interpretations and attaching our own spin on scriptures:

    That's why we check our stuff against Commentaries. The Holy Spirit will peel off the flesh. As in, the Bema Seat which will burn up all the wood, hay and stubble.

    Teachers are held to a greater accountability. That's why we must keep the Holy Spirits presence in our prayer life and ministry.

    May the Lord bless and keep us close to His vest. May we be ready to be sent. Pray, Pray, Pray.

    When Elisha picked up Elijahs coat off the ground, what did he do with it?

    Hang it in a closet?

    Donate it to a museum?

    He picked it up, smote the water and walked over to the other side. He knew it was The Anointing of God. Do we know that?

  • A QUESTION
    Did you notice that the Tree of Life, and the Ark of The Covenant we're moved to Heaven; in the Book of Revelation ?

    All this searching for it and false finds stories are false. The Ark will be used again in the Battle of Armageddon.

    My guess is the Antichrist thinks he has a weapon that will destroy the Ark, and the Lamb of God who will come to earth to destroy him and his armies (as prophesied in Scripture).

    Believe in the Scriptures. Not movies or books written by mankind.
  • Rick - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Hi Jan The things your asking in Genesis is Gods design and in His order its either believed or not, the other question about God or lord God. Yes there is a difference depending on context of usage, two examples in Genesis 12:1 the word lord is yahweh which means He who Is, in Genesis 17: 1 the lord appeared to abraham and said I am the Almighty God translated from El Shaddai and said walk before me and be thou perfect. This is just one example that you can look up yourself. There is also Jehovah which means God in relationship to his creative works. It is a very inspiring study to get into you can find the info in strongs concordance or young's analytical concordance. Have fun Its Very eye opening.

    In Galatians 2:7, Paul writes, "But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;"

    Paul seems to be saying there were two gospels. What's the difference between the gospel of the circumcision and the gospel of the uncircumcision? Why were the two gospels separated, and why was Paul commissioned to preach the gospel of the uncircumcision and Peter commissioned to preach the gospel of the circumcision?

    Contend for the faith that once delivered to the saints is different than having faith ?

    E.g. I have faith that if I apply myself diligently

    To bible study that I will find the bright faith.

    Now with that being said I also have to have faith to study the right bible . For not all who believe do not as the scripture hath said

    Cont: Facts:

    Genesis ch 36 esp. v 8

    Mal. ch 1 vs 2-4

    Book of OBADIAH GOD's anger towards the Edomites for aiding Babylon.

    Ezekiel ch 35 esp. v 15, ch 36 esp. v. 5. Isaiah ch 34

    "Gentile" It is used to replace "goy". A latin word from gens meaning "family "

    ie...of the same tribe or group

    You will probably think it means " not a Jew ". That is what you are told to believe.

    Genesis ch 10 in the KJV states:- "the isles of the Gentiles". You will note that Genesis ch 10 is BEFORE even Abraham. Abrahams son Isaac had 2 sons called Jacob and Esau. Jacob would be renamed as "ISRAEL" (Gen 5 v 10)

    The Jews claim "goy" means Not a Jew......what in Gen ch 10 ? There were no Israelites for 2 generations hence so how can that be so?

    The problem :- The whole world church teaches that Gentiles are "non Jews"......and therefore the ASSUMPTION that JEWS must be Israelites !!! So throughout the Bible...with this false belief...every reader thinks verses like Isaiah ch 9 v 6 (or ch 2 v 6 ) or Matt ch 4 v 15 etc all refer to Gentiles......when in fact they refer to ISRAEL " a light to the Gentiles....the same clan as being spoken of !

    Jews are not Israelites. Jewish Almanac 1980 states:- Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a JEW, or to call a contemporary JEW an Israelite or Hebrew". (They know..but Christians do not !!!! )

    Number ch 20 prove no Jews at Sinai.

    JESUS John ch 8 speaks to "the Jews" v. 32 "The truth shall make you free" . In anger they reply: v 33 " We are Abraham's seed and never in bondage " V 37 JESUS AGREES about Abraham....BUT..ALL ISRAELITES were in bondage in Egypt and all were also in either Assyria or Babylon. Thus the Jews are NOT ISRAEL - but of ESAU..EDOM. GOD's enemy. Read ch 8 v 44. and Rev. ch 2 v 9/ 3 v 9. Open your eyes...we ARE Israel ! Isaac's sons....(Zac's sons.....Saxons) To Rick: sorry..Deut ch 2 v 26.
  • Would you help me understand how LORD God (Gen.2) could have created the beasts after he created Adam, but BEFORE he created Eve, but God (Gen.1) created the beasts before both Adam & Eve?

    Also, why were the plants created BEFORE man in Gen.1, but in Gen. 2 it was AFTER Adam had been created?

    By the way, it's not the validity of the Bible I dispute, but the interpretation of it. Most people say God & LORD God are the same being, but how can that be when the order in which they created things is contradictory?

    Thank you.
