    Verse 10 let not the wife depart from the husband COMMAND of the Lord .

    Verse 11 remains unmarried or reconciled to the husband .

    Verse 15 if the unbeliever depart let them depart , brother or sister is not under bondage in such cases ...

    What is the bondage in such cases ?

    Impossible to be the marriage law , so it is the COMMAND of the Lord verses 10 and 11

    If you say it's the marriage law , why do we even have laws ?

    You can not break the laws with out sinning . So it's the Lords command to stay together , you can not force the unbelievers to obey the Lords commands . But you must remain single or break the law and become adulterous.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Luke 17:3
    This is talking about the rapture. The end of days. One believer will be taken up while the unbeliever will not. Poof, just like that. We (believers) are out of here.
  • Rob on Isaiah 40
    Isaiah ch 40 v 25 ,26,27,28,29,30,31

    To whom then will ye liken me , or shall I be equal ? Dairy the Holy One .

    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength:they shall mount up with wings of eagles ;they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint .

    Jeanette, thanks for sharing the background to your sad situation. With what you've written, you seemed to have had the good of the Church & ministering to the children uppermost on your heart - and this was heartening to read & you are to be commended for your love & faithfulness.

    However, from the comment by the pastor's wife that she should be considered as pastor in her husband's absence, is concerning. That's not how the Church is organized or functions & I would be surprised if your pastor agreed to that. Are there no elders or deacons appointed, or is the Church a 'one-man show'? Or, maybe women pastors are seen as appropriate appointments within the Church. When she approached you to do something, were you able to discuss the matter with the pastor himself so that he was aware of these 'two voices speaking to you'? It's always the right thing to do, to air out a matter before misunderstandings or friction can arise.

    I perceive that there is a 'Control' issue here. Both he & his wife are probably seeing themselves as being 'overlords' & 'owners' of the congregation, to whom his teaching from the Word can only be the one acceptable, rather than believers hearing the Word given & having freedom to verify it in their own hearts & in their own study, to see whether his words are in accord with the Bible. And that both he & his wife's attitude changed after his wife's son joined the Church may indicate some renewed opposition to you, to what you're doing, or the position you hold there.

  • Hugo Zyl on John 1
    Dear brothers and sisters in Christ

    I want to make a comment about the greatest problem in Christianity; namely, the falsehood of the Trinity.

    There is no support of such a thing as a Trinity in the Bible. In contrast, tons of evidence exist in the religions of Egypt, Babylonia and Hinduism. The accepting of this belief among Christians may correctly be called the saddest event in the history of humanity.

    God in His unimaginable mercy took on a body of flesh, placed our sins upon that body, and broke it. He raised it from the dead, and let it go up to heaven. The last words spoken by it were, "Go into all the world, preaching the Gospel. Baptise the believers in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost." The disciples did just that. What Name? Jesus Christ.

    Jesus Christ is the name of God the father, and it is the name of the Son of God, and it is also the name of the Holy Ghost. God is a spirit. He took a name for us. It is Jesus Christ. The "Jesus" part of the name refers to the body which God used. The "Christ" part of the name refers to the manifested deity that was inside Jesus' body.

    How terrible it is to then turn this incredible Gift of God into some freakshow three-in-one heathen concept of a Trinity. May God have mercy upon us all!

    May we all grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Amen!
  • Rob on Psalms 65
    Psalms 65

    2.O thou that hearest prayer , unto thee shall all flesh come .

    All flesh prays to who ?

    The LORD GOD .

    Yes Jesus often prayed to The LORD GOD his father .

    And still makes intercession to The LORD GOD on our behalf .
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on John 1:31
    Can you remember the samaritan woman at the well? When she met Jesus and what he said to her? But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. This is the same water you are asking about. The moving water you question is the same water that is in the words of Christ. When you believe these words, you will become that same fountain producing a life filled with anticipation and wonder. Knowing that the one at the well ,who told you whatever you did is the Christ the son of the living God!
  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 17
    Jeanette, I'm unsure how you are discerning that your Church is rejecting you. Are they avoiding you or speaking against you? Maybe, you have shared something to the pastor or people that is in conflict with the Church's teaching? Unless, you know the reason for this 'rejection', it would be hard to suggest whether it is God's direction for you to move you away or otherwise.

    If however, you are in a Church that is not preaching correctly from the Word, & even after you bringing up the matter with the elders of the Church, you are being shunned or spoken against, then it would be high time for you to leave & seek out a Bible-believing, Christ-centred Fellowship. But unless we have some specifics as to what has taken place at your Church, then we couldn't give you correct advice - it would be advice based on suppositions.
  • Tithing - in Reply on Malachi 2
    Matthew 13:23

    But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

    Keeping to your question about tithing: Jesus told us to give cheerfully, not grudgingly.

    Tithing establishes TRUST between you and God. You trust Him, and HE takes care of your needs. He is faithful that Promised.

    As your faith grows beyond 10 percent and you give above that; the scripture above shows that you receive greater reward for being faithful.

    Offerings are above the tithe. These are you blessing God back for the blessings you have received and you desire now, to bless Gods people. It doesn't have to be to your Church. I give to ministries that go to all the world; feed and help people who are going through disasters...and need everything. It makes me so happy to read the praise reports that come back to me.

    Offerings build churches, buy Bibles, help the oppressed in other countries etc.

    What is on your heart that you wish you could help in some way?

    Then discuss this with your Heavenly Father, ABBA. And see if you get the green light in Your spirit.

    This is your bag of seed that blesses the whole world. Happy you will be!

    We can't outgive God. He desires to bless His kids. But if we draw back and think greedy; the only person who suffers is us. We will not experience that blessing that God wants to pour out on us.

    DONT think small. Think Big like your Daddy, ABBA.

    If you see a neighbor who has the same old, ragged 50yr old sweater on; present them with a brand new sweater, in Jesus Name.

    See what happens in the heart: yours and theirs. Miracles do happen.

    What verses are Christ's directions for his followers?
  • The End of Days - in Reply on Genesis 1
    I am happy that the people who were foretold of at the end of the Book of Daniel are rising up. The Book was shut up, but now it is speaking to hearts.

    We have to preach it to people who have grown up with a herd mentality. Perhaps like the swine that ran over a cliff and were drowned (as witnessed of Jesus).

    We have to preach it the way Jesus would have it. It's one thing to sit on the mountaintop and See these things revealed. It's another to go down amongst the people and make it plain to them.

    There are people who have already sworn allegiance to Antichrist. They may think they will get fame and glory; Antichrist is Not a team player.

    Book of Daniel: some things are past; but other things are rapidly appearing. We are living in a time when things are HAPPENING in the world/the news, but it is barely being reported to the public. It is given to us to sit in the watch tower, see it, and report it to the those who will carry it: pastors, teachers, prophets, evangelist's, that will rapidly alert the sea of people who will hear it.

    I'm talking about people who are set on going with Jesus when he returns. HOW do you stir people to stand up and follow Jesus, the King? YOU LIFT UP THE STANDARD! You walk forward.

    Those who can see, need to herald it.

    Jesus is returning soon.

    The signs in Matthew 24 are marching forward with purpose, speed.

    Heralding is NO more important as those with feet, or no feet! that publish it to those who are going over a cliff.

    Evangelism is the Bible with feet. The intercessors, guide those feet. Is anybody organizing the prayer warriors? Do we really understand what Spiritual Warfare is?

    Jesus sits at the right Hand of God, this very minute making Intercession for ALL SAINTS.

    Let us do what we know to do. Watch, pray, GO; keep the wedding dress and oil in a backpack. Obey God and obey the law. No zealots needed. Be wise, be in order. Go.

    Hey Diana,

    Baptism is now done of the spirit. "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."

    1 Corinthians 12:13 KJB "And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost."

    Acts 11:15-16 KJB God Bless you. You can find me on Facebook with anymore questions.

  • Chris - in Reply on 1 John 1
    Just to add to the other good comments given. When you have truly repented (deep contrition for our sins against a Holy God & against man) & found forgiveness that is promised from God's Word (1 John 1:9), then you are indeed in a right standing in God's Eyes (Ephesians 1:3-6). If after what you have done & God has promised to do for you & in you, you still feel guilt over those sins & have no joy or peace, it seems that you have not left those sins at the foot of the cross (i.e. laid your sins upon Jesus Who came for this very purpose).

    You need to determine in your heart & mind to leave them behind at the Cross & trust God for doing this & accepting you. Do you have a real sense of the Holy Spirit in you working in some ways to confirm the holy transaction that has been done? Or is this teaching of the Spirit still a mystery & an absence in your experience? Are you prepared to stand on God's Word, believing in what it says to you, or rather wanting your mind to believe & dwell on things that are past, that which was forgiven & forgotten? Sometimes the memory of our past sins can remain with us, but they shouldn't cause us to doubt God anymore, thus losing our joy & peace.

    One also needs to be conscious of the lion that prowls, Satan, the enemy of God & of your soul. He not only blinds & deceives the world to disbelieve in God, but more so, attacks God's children in many ways. And one way is to create doubt (as he did with Adam & Eve) & fear. It may be that he is reaching out to you in this way to keep you bound, restless, & removing the peace that you should be enjoying. At those times at night, call out to your Heavenly Father, claim His promises to you & command the spirit of fear to depart. In your waking hours, stay alert by attending to the Word of God & prayer - Satan hates it when we do that & the Spirit of God will minister to you.

  • Chris - in Reply on 1 John 4
    1 John 4:20, "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?" In this verse, the word "brother" (Gk. adelphos) refers to one in the community of believers.

    However, in other references the word can be expanded to mean all fellow men (e.g. Matthew 22:39, "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."). A different word used here (Gk. plesion), but in the spirit of Christian love, we are to show love also to those whom we come across in our life's journey.

    And of course, we can demonstrate love in many ways - in fact, we should go out of our way to see that our brother or sister in Christ, or our unsaved neighbours are well cared for both spiritually & physically, making their lives more easy & enjoyable & thus having the witness of God's love shown to them. How can the unsaved ever understand Who God is unless they find visible proof in those who profess to have God in them? How can their hearts & ears ever open to the Good News unless they become genuinely inquisitive to a type of love they have not known? If done for the unsaved, then how much more we need to be to those in the faith, showing a love & care that goes beyond carnal human desires or abilities.
  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 8:24
    Jim, if you're referring to Jesus while He was on Earth, consider 2 John 1:7, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist".

    And Romans 8:3:"For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh".

    After His Resurrection, He still had a human body: "Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have."

    And Acts 1:10,11: "And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he (Jesus) went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."

    1 John 3:2, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."

    Does the Bible state anywhere that baptism is done in free-flowing water? Such as a creek or river?
  • Interrogating the Facts that are in the Bible - in Reply on Mark 1
    You can Google that information and you will see differing opinions.

    Fact is that all the disciples traveled with Jesus and witnessed the same events. That is why they are called, 'Harmony of the Gospels."

    Four men saw the same things, and wrote of what they saw: with their perceptions and in their own words.

    There may have been time differences of exactly when they wrote of what they witnessed. Every one of them were killed and I'm sure trustworthy people carried the manuscripts.

    Apostle Paul wrote much of the New Testament. John who was imprisoned on Patmos, wrote the Book of Revelation; lived a long life and died in his bed.

    I'm not the right person to debate who, what and when, with.

    I believe the Bible as it is. Why? Because my salvation experience was all supernatural. It was a visual vision, but it was also in the present as I received deliverance on the spot. The Holy Spirit walked me through Acts 19:19, since I had been in the occult. I saw someone from heaven, and I got to see hell too.

    I refuse to dispute validity! It's all real.

    Ask yourselves why are you investigating the Son of God?

    Faith believes what Jesus said. You can't please God without faith? If we think we can interrogate God; just as we interrogated our own President (for 4 years!!) and dig up some dirt? you are in danger of seeing hell too. I do not recommend it.

    It is total darkness, no light. It's twisting tree roots, snakes worms and worse! It smells of rotting flesh; but it's empty. It is Unclean, filthy, polluted. Quiet. No sound yet.
  • Examples of Apostasy on Matthew 1
    John 6:66

    After this many of his disciples TURNED BACK and no longer walked with him

    (Jesus).

    Hebrews 10

    How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?

    Hosea 14:4

    I will heal their apostasy; I will love them freely, for my anger has turned from them.

    Revelation 3:16

    So, because you are lukewarm, and NEITHER hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.

    2 Timothy 2:18

    Who have SWERVED from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some.

    Book of Jude 1:

    For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

    Matthew 10:33

    But whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

    Hebrews 9:28

    So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, NOT TO DEAL WITH SIN, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3

    Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction

    Hebrews 3:12

    Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.

    Galatians 1:8-9

    But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I SAY AGAIN, If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you (first) received, let him be accursed.
  • Wandering Off and Apostasy on Psalms 34
    I'm writing this as cautionary.

    If you have doubts about the validity of Gods written WORD... you need to search this out yourself.

    Google study how the Bible was assembled and approved as the inerrant Word of God.

    Right now, almost all of the ancient scrolls of the Bible are under protection in Israel. Being compared to what is in our Bibles now. Definitely take a look at that.

    Listen to what Jesus says about this:

    2 And he (Jesus) taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

    3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

    4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

    5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth.

    6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

    7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

    8 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

    9 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    You are one of these. Figure out which one?

    We are living in the beginning of The Great Falling Away. Many people are just going to wander off and not come back. They worship this world system that does not support Faith in anything.

    There is "wander off".... and there is outright APOSTASY. The Bible in Isaiah says: COME LET US REASON TOGETHER...

    I'm not going to argue myself blue to convince you that Jesus is who He says He is. You need to consider Romans 1:20 and 2:1.

    If we wander away after these people who express doubts as to the validity of the Bible, then your roots are non-existent or drying up. Shaken by the wind.

    Have faith in God and His Word; which is Jesus Christ, the Messiah. Examine yourselves.
