    Seems like the media pushes all the blame for racism on whites.

    Why do they hate whites who printed Bibles and built churches? Europe and the USA did

    Bible book Song of Solomon 5:10 - My beloved is WHITE white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.

    Bible book Lamentations 4:7 - Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were WHITER whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire:

    Revelation 1:14 - His [Jesus] HEAD head and his hairs were WHITE white like wool, as WHITE white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass,

    [Brass is made of copper which is REDDISH GOLDEN, not black] as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

    I am curious if the Lord made a mistake when he put whites in Europe and blacks in Africa?

    Deuteronomy 32:8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.

    Re: those who are "taken away" (Matthew 24:39-41). If those who are 'taken away' are those who receive the beast's mark, then to where are they taken? Is it to their death, to some other location awaiting sentence or with mark removed, now comprising the 'nations' after the Tribulation? (Revelation 20:3,8; 21:24)? We understand that many will die during the Tribulation period & the Lord Himself will destroy the beast, the false prophet & the armies that come against Him (Revelation 19:19-21), but can we assume that all human life will perish at this time, or will there be some that remain to re-populate the Earth (& noted what you suggested in this regard)? So, I'm unsure whether I've adequately responded to your pages of comments, but wanted to condense it all to one page."

    Me:

    I believe Hades is still around. Abraham's bosom is gone as the dead in Christ rose with Jesus as the first fruits 2,000 years ago. Hades has to be in existence still. Check this verse out.

    Psalms 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell (Hades), and all the nations that forget God.

    Revelation 20:14 And death and hell (Hades) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

    No one is in the lake of fire yet. Although the false prophet and antichrist get to be thrown in 1,000 years before everyone else.

    Rev_19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    Rev_20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet ARE (these two men were already in for 1,000 years), and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

    Rev_20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

    Rev_20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    And of course "generation" (Matthew 24:34) can't apply to only those living at that time, but to the 'Jewish people' who experienced the start of their troubles from AD 70 (v 2) & onwards. His disciples must have thought at the time, that Emperor Titus' invasion was about to fulfil Jesus' discourse, but of course, it was only the start of their troubles, with much worse to come, climaxing in the future.

    Me:

    But you are forgetting that unsaved Jews do not read the New Testament. Very few even read the Old Testament and almost never without following the commentaries of the unsaved rabbis who didn't even know the 490 year timeline and rejected their own messiah. Matthew 24 was not going to do anyone who were not even going to read it any good. WHO was Jesus' answering? James, Peter, John and Andrew. Always take "How would have those the book was originally written to have taken or understood what was said". It was written to Christians, or I guess I should say those who were going to be born again within the next few months.
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 4:4
    Hi again Warren, I believe a misanthrope can be saved, indeed Christ's salvation is available to all. We realize that when one repents of specific sins or even of a nature given to a propensity to do evil, then the Lord forgives, gives new birth by His Spirit, & power to overcome & live this new life. There will times of failing, as we all do because of still having to live in sinful flesh with the old Enemy knocking at our door, but the overwhelming desire of the believer is to be an overcomer & please the Lord in every area of our lives.

    1 John 4:20 gives a telling message: "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?" I realize that this isn't specifically directed to a misanthrope rather to a person who claims to be a believer & loving God, yet holds anger & hatred for another. However, the spirit behind that hatred is evident & which boils down to: 'one cannot claim to love God & hate another: the two emotions can't dwell together'. I realize that a misanthrope has a much deeper mental issue for him to feel that way (& maybe it has come about because of the circumstances that prevailed upon him), but God is in the business of dealing with hard cases & He can give a full healing that always accompanies His full salvation.

    Emma, I wish you could move in with one of your kids or a nursing home. BUT, if not I would buy protection. I would suggest a 410 shotgun. They don't kick much and will do enough damage that they will run. Nothing wrong in protecting yourself. Go to a firing range to try it out.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Robert, that was a lot of work you put in, so my thanks. But I'll keep my comments to the point.

    Re: the Fig Tree. I agree with you that in these portions (Matthew 24 & Luke 21) the Fig tree is not Israel but used as part of Jesus' illustration to reveal the signs pointing to His second coming, though I don't see those devastations happening 'all at the same time'. If one had to consider the rate of time between the two, I would think that a fig tree in its season, would bud & fruit far quicker than the fulfilling of all those occurrences prior to His Coming. So I just accept it as an illustration rather than to apply a time rate to it. So "Behold the fig tree, and all the trees": I understand the "all the trees" as Jesus' emphasis as to the abundance of evidence that 'summer is nigh' = His Coming.

    And of course "generation" (Matthew 24:34) can't apply to only those living at that time, but to the 'Jewish people' who experienced the start of their troubles from AD 70 (v 2) & onwards. His disciples must have thought at the time, that Emperor Titus' invasion was about to fulfil Jesus' discourse, but of course, it was only the start of their troubles, with much worse to come, climaxing in the future.

    Yes. The past is the past. You hit the reset button. All things goes on as before BUT with a new outlook. And a new nature. This new thing in you is the Holy Spirit, which was not there before. Amen and may God bless you.
  • Lost 1 on Hebrews 12
    It seems you were correct as i did not leave everything at the foot of the cross, unconfessed sin, hate for a certain person that i had trusted. I did not want to let go of it and it was eating away, I have repented of it and I do feel better but still struggle with self condemnation, but i found a scripture in 1st John If our heart condemns us God is greater than our heart. Does that mean that the lord knows my heart and even though i condemn myself he still loves me and knows i want to live for him? I really could use some help with this.

  • Warren on 2 Corinthians 4:4
    Hi Chris, this is revealing what kind of person I am but is necessary for an answere to my question, realizing that you might not be qualified as a human and not God, to know, but your opinion could be helpful to me. Can a misanthropic type person achieve salvation? Thanks, warren
  • Susan - in Reply on 1 Peter 2
    Kay, if you have trusted Christ as your Savior, then you already have the gift of Salvation ( Ephesians 2: 8 & 9 ). God will welcome you into Heaven. And Satan will do all he can to discourage you, like he has been doing so far. If you have favorite Bible verses, think about them when those times come. Do you need some?
  • Jonathan Kennedy
    I can't beg you enough, please don't kill yourself. I love you, I know you're probably thinking, why would some random person love me? Because, I know what it's like to feel hopeless, and want to end it all. I promise you, killing yourself will only make it worse.

    It doesn't matter what you believe, Jesus does love you. He died in your place on calvary, and rose again the third day. All to save you from hell. Please call on Jesus Christ outloud to save you. He will, I know from experience.

    I love you Flossy Ann Archibeque, and am praying for you! If you need to talk, please can call me (704)230-8424

    I feel your pain, I was in the same spot you are in right now, but I was 30 years praying without answers. I hear satan in your pain, you have been listening to the wrong voice, I also know this from experience. I started REALLY searching for God, 7 years ago and I stand here today walking very close to God and Jesus, it has been a wonderful experience, God answers prayers of His children. Have you truly excepted Jesus into your life and heart? I thought I had for 30 years, I said the sinners prayer at least once a day for those years, all I can do for you is to pray God will soften your heart so the Holy Spirit can come into your heart. You need to preserve, if you kill yourself you are guaranteeing that you are going to hell, it makes me sad to think that is where you want to spend forever,

    Heavenly Father, I am on my knees for this lost soul Father, I am asking you, Father to soften her heart, I cry out to You Lord, send your Holy Spirit to her heart. I also ask you Jesus to rebuke the devil that has control of her, in Your beautiful and Glorious name, Amen. So be it.

    Dear sweet Flossy,

    I know EXACTLY how you feel. My life was similar to yours. I have been abused, used, rejected, by family and men that supposedly " loved" me. I was a teen mom with no support from my family. I also tried committing suicide, only to have my ex mother in law walk in on me. I lived a hopeless life for 40 years!!!! And then Jesus stepped into my life. Let me tell you about my life now after receiving Jesus in 2006! He revived a dream in me that I thought would never happen, and that was to go to college. In 2007 he showed me in a dream that I would go to school. That happened in 2014!! Yes, seven years after he gave me my dream! In those seven years, my husband was diagnosed with MS and lost his job, my teenage daughter was rebelling and moved in with my parents, my mother in law was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis of the lungs and I became a caregiver to her and my husband, while still working! I lost my job in 2013 a week before Thanksgiving!! Yes... all this could have made me give up the dream of going to school, but instead it fueled my need for Jesus EVERYDAY!!! I attended school at the age of 40 years old for 6 years and I have three degrees! I finished my Master's this past May and I did it debt free because it is true! Where he guides, he provides! I tell you this because I understand the hard days, the abusive days, the hopeless days, but if you hold fast to Jesus and his words and promises... HE WILL GIVE YOU THE LIFE HE CREATED YOU FOR!!! HE LOVES YOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW!!! If I would have successfully committed suicide when I was 19, I would have never known how great my life is turning out to be!!!! Please DO NOT GIVE UP!!!! YOU ARE HERE FOR A REASON AND HAVE A PURPOSE IN THIS LIFE TO ACTUALLY LIVE AND NOT JUST SURVIVE!!!!! I hope my post encourages you that if God can do this for me, than know that HE CAN FO IT FOR YOU!!!!!

    You know that Christian saying, " Jesus takes your mess and makes it your message"? Well... here's mine

    Dear Flossy,

    Even though you feel trapped and don't see anyway out, please don't give up. There's more to it. Situations change, perspectives change.

    How do I know this? Because at one point I wanted to end things too and planned to do so. Even though emotions and pain seem at 100/100 level I'm so glad I waited, because things DID change. Very quickly too. Just give it another day, another week. If I hadn't waited it would have been such a waste, because shortly after new positive things happened in my life. But I didn't know that at the time, I too, thought I was stuck, trapped, with no way out, blamed others, blamed God. But part of the problem was my own thinking. I let satan deceive me. I believed a lie that I was trapped, but I was only trapped by my own thinking and false assumptions. Seeking help through pastors, mentors, counselors helped expose my false assumptions and helped me set more healthy expectations. I sought to read the scripture with a fresh set of eyes and understanding. I found out that God does love me, forgives me, and is there for me. God loves you, forgives you, and is there for you too, even though you don't currently believe it.

    Thank you for sharing your heavy heart. Please know that people do care and we will be praying for you and would like to support you here on this forum if you allow them to. Can you at least call the hotline and let someone hear to your story and let them support you? 888-864-6884. It's a Christian minister you can call/text. Other numbers as a backup: 1-800-273-8255, 1-800-827-7571.

    Please don't rush to anything, because myself and so many others have been in a similar place of extreme hurt in life, but waited, and positive things DID happen just right around the corner. Some of our testimonies are available on this site for you to read: Link

    Can you please respond when you get this? Awaiting your reply...
  • Bob Hilt on Genesis 3:1
    Genesis 3 the serpent in the garden that tempted Eve.

    Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that OLD SERPENT old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

    Is the serpent a mere figure of speech?

    Was Eve speaking with a beautiful angel as mentioned in Ezekiel?

    Ezekiel Chapter 28:15 Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. (Created, not born)

    16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with VIOLENCE violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

    (war in heaven Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,)

    17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy BEAUTY beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy BRIGHTNESS brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

    2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of LIGHT light.

    I do not lean towards the talking snake thing personally.
  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Chris thought you might find this interesting.

    When will or When did the last 3 Years of Daniel Chapter 9 get Fulfilled?

    Choice One:

    7th Day Adventists take the 'Stephen principle' dying 3 1/2 years after Jesus was crucified thus fulfilling all 70 weeks of Daniel chapter nine's 490 year timeline or what is called the 70 prophetic weeks with each week equaling 7 years. The problem I have with this view although it could be true is that it cannot be proven Biblically or historically when the evangelist Stephen was stoned to death. It really stems from their prophetess Ellen G. Whites supposed vision. I am not going to put my faith in something that cannot be proven with the Bible and Ellen had some false prophecies.

    Choice Two:

    I hold to the 3 1/2 year war that ended in 70 AD with Jesus giving the unsaved Jews an extra 40 years to repent and believe upon Him as their Messiah. I do so because it, what was known as The Great Revolt, lasted 3 1/2 years, so it is historical, and it also fulfills part of the Daniel 9:24-27 prophecy as the prophecy not only talks about Messiah coming and dying for sins but also that the 2nd temple would be destroyed which obviously means that Messiah had to come before the 2nd temple was destroyed. There is no getting around that. This prophecy also matches nicely with all the parables, and warnings Jesus gave the Jews in Matthew chapters 20, 21, 22, and 23.

    CHOICE 3:

    The Book of Revelation talks about a 3 year period. Whether this is an entirely different 3 years than the 490 years of Daniel chapter nine's 70 weeks prophecy or not I feel cannot be proven either way. A 'full preterist' would say this portion of Revelation was already fulfilled in 70 AD also. I have some problems with that. I tend to hold to Revelation's 3 years as different than the Daniel 9 490 years because it seems to be dealing with a different group of people and Messiah had already come and died for sins. I think choice two is the most logical.
  • Emma teunis on Ecclesiastes 3
    iam a woman who lives alone iam 82 yrs old In this time of great uncertainty i hear many shootings at night I came across this word from Jesus that a time would come to sell my garment to buy a sword I feel for being alone i should buy protection for defending myself now if my home is invaded Can you elaborate on what Jesus said?
  • Lemont Tate on Revelation 13
    Upon reading this, and reading some of the comments, how is it concluded that this chapter is talking about a future event or events that have not occurred yet? Show me in this chapter (precepts) or the one before or after if must, that when we get to this chapter, it references future events?
  • Khahlile Mathe on Luke 8
    I re-read the whole chapter of Luke 8 and noticed that it is very rich with great things that our Lord did. The Lunatick man at the graves/tombs is a point to also focus on.

    How his condition bothered the Lord and moved Him just to go for him in Gedarenes in Galelee. Such that many many evil spirits in this man shouted in unison; and asked;"What have I to do with thee Jesus thou Son of God, Most High?"

    Jesus came from Galelee too as the man. He could have known about this man all along, yet waited for the right time to set him free.

    At the right time Jesus went for him. Just to go and deliver him. Those demons bowed down before Jesus and begged Him not to sent them to torment before time
