    Where did Cain got his wife, since we were told according to the Bible, Adam and Eve were the first human being created by God?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    (Part 2)

    I hope you understand what this verse is saying. Jesus Christ was the final sacrifice for sin. There is no more sacrifice for sin. Those Hebrew people who were being enlightened to the truth had to choose between accepting Christ's final sacrifice for sin, or going turning away and going back to their own sacrificing.

    Please know this. If you have received Christ (Been born of His Spirit), He lives inside of you. He promised to never leave you, nor forsake you. You are eternally secure in Christ if you have been born of His Spirit. Also understand, that even though you're saved, you will sin. As long as you live in a body of flesh, you will sin. However, you will be unable to live a lifestyle of sin because Christ's Spirit in you will not allow you to do so. There will be conviction. You will commit single acts of sin, but it is impossible for a saved person to live a lifestyle of sin, their former lifestyle before receiving Christ.

    Please do not be troubled in heart. If you have Christ, you'll always have Christ. He's not leaving you!
  • Mishael on Ruth 1:22
    I did a study just on the word Wisdom and was speechless over how much information is in the Bible. That will blow your mind.
  • Dot - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    What immediately came to my mind is

    1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. (Also continue on thru 2:2) The fear you feel is NOT from God, for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. 11 Timothy 1:7 But satan, the liar who comes to kill, steal & destroy has gripped you. Cast off his lies IN JESUS NAME!!!!! I pray this helps to bring His peace into your soul. Get into the Word & see what God says, then you'll know the truth, & satan's lies will be more obvious to you.
  • Mishael On I John 19 - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Stay a while in 1 John and his other books.

    In 1 John 2:1 it says that if you sin and Satan drags you up before the Throne of God, you have an ADVOCATE (sitting at Gods right arm). Jesus, your Advocate and attorney. He checks the Lambs Book of Life, sees your name written in it, and your case is dismissed for lack of evidence. Your sins have been blotted out with His blood.

    It doesn't mean we can run amok and sin all over the place. We are to put ourselves in the Holy Spirits leadership, teaching; conviction when we do sin.

    Fear hath torments. That's a demon with many little demons. It's their job to shake your faith in Jesus. The spirit of death causes some people to take their lives. They know they have no rights to do any of that to a Jesus trusting Christian.

    In 1 John 1:9 you will learn to run to the Cross if you do sin and confess; be forgiven; renewed. I go there a lot.

    We are washed clean by constantly renewing our minds with the Word of God. Your Bible. If we don't furnish our "homes" with Bible teaching; prayer: demons come back around to see if you have an opening for them. You can make them leave!

    Say what you've learned: IT IS WRITTEN... and speak your scripture that you've planted in your heart.

    You'll get so strong that you'll be able to help other people get freed as well.

    Now go read Romans 8:1-2. Read all of Romans 8. Read Book of John 8:32

    You did good coming here :)
  • Adam - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    Hello, why do you assume Paul is illiterate? The apparent contradiction of the word 'voice' of the these 2 verses of Acts doesn't mean automatically mean Paul is lying. The men heard a sound but didn't understand the words of the voice. 22:9 says "heard not the voice of him that spake to me" means the words were not understood. The original Greek word appears to be a flexible one that is sometimes translated to 'sound', like in John 3:8.
  • Rich on Hebrews 10
    Hebrews 10 vs 26-27 say if we sin willfully, does that mean if we sin on purpose deliberately with Full knowledge of what we are doing, we can never turn to repentance? Is the rest of our lives spent with foreboding and fear knowing hell is our destination? Because I cant seem to find Jesus anymore from the very second I wake up until I finally go to sleep I'm in fear , I have absolutely no joy in my life, I do my best to lead others to Christ but inside I feel like I've made an eternal mistake, and I dont want anyone else to make it
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    If I can jump in and maybe shed some light on this. In Galatians 1:12, Paul says:

    "I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ."

    When John wrote the Revelation, He received it from Christ Himself. But if there is a question as to whether Paul met the qualifications to be an Apostle proper, we are told Paul went to Jerusalem, met with the Apostles and they, themselves, approved him as an Apostle to the Gentiles. Peter also refers to what Paul writes as "Scripture" 2 Peter 3:16.

    Acts 9:5-7, "Who are you, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," he replied. "Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do." The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone."

    This event is also recounted in Acts 22. So what are we to believe? Did Paul see Jesus? Well, He says he did. Others can attest to the fact that what Paul said on the Road to Damascus was True. Ananias was also a witness. And the Apostles confirmed it and appointed him Apostle to the Gentiles, as Christ told him. Furthermore, Pauls life, work, letters, sacrifice all testify to the fact that he did see Jesus and was taught by Him. In fact, the Bible says he was "told" by God and Jesus what to say.

    If we doubt everything the Bible says, we have nowhere to go. If we doubt what Paul said, we have to doubt the entire New Testament.
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO on Matthew 24:38
    Mishael, in response to 2 of your posts, Angels are created beings. We see that in Colossians 1:16. They were created to serve. They are not human and Jesus Himself said they don't procreate. He further added that there is no marriage in Heaven. Our existence there will be completely different than what it is now. Some people are of the opinion they will continue to lead a Human life, marrying, having children, going to work from 8-5. But that is fiction. We will be completely transformed. So much so, that the closest Disciples of Jesus didn't even recognize Him when He appeared to them after the Resurrection. How different was He? He sat with them. He talked to them. He ate with them. And they had no clue.

    Paul tells us that our mortal bodies will put on immortality when Christ returns and calls us to be with Him for all eternity. Our bodies will be incorruptible. Our minds will be incorruptible. Out hearts will be incorruptible.

    We have been taught to believe that all Creation is about us; about our welfare, our joy, our delight in God, our enjoyment, our families. But is that was what our earthly creation was for? Where we created for us or for Christ? Where the Angels created for themselves or to serve God?

    It is also a fiction that Angels can assume all the biological functions of Humans and procreate with them. They can't.
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO on Ruth 1:22
    Joshua on Colossians 1:15 brought up an interesting question. Who is Jesus? Is He God Devine or a created being God promoted to a higher position? There is a related Central theme in Scripture we often don't pay a lot of attention to. Even Preachers seem to skip over it when referencing it. But if you don't fully understand it, the rest of Scripture becomes difficult.

    I am asking the following question for all who would like to respond, on Colossians 1:16,

    "For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and FOR Him."

    I have discussed this a little with others, but I would like to look at it on its own. From:

    PURPOSE DRIVEN CREATION

    Book

    Q: What does the word FOR mean? What does it mean that all things were created FOR Him?
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on Colossians 1
    My 3rd Response, Joshua. In Isaiah 53 Jesus is called, "The Eternal Father, The Mighty God." Again, JW focus on "Mighty" as not equal to Almighty, making Jesus inferior. They won't deal with "Eternal Father". They don't know what to do with it. But Jesus is the Eternal Father, John 14:7-9:

    "If you had known Me, you would know My Father as well. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him." Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us." Jesus replied, "Philip, I have been with you all this time, and still you do not know Me? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?"

    Jesus is Human and Devine. Not angelic.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    Page 3.

    And a side note: I don't understand what your 'Paul's theology' reference is. Paul (then Saul), was devout Pharisee, a Jew of the Jews, believing he obeyed every Law. He hated Jesus & His followers & put many to death. He received a revelation from Heaven that would shake his being to the core. (Acts 9:3-7). What was that revelation? That this Jesus Whom he persecuted (i.e. against his followers) was alive from the dead & speaking to him from Heaven. So Paul's letters to the Churches were not from his own private thoughts & interpretations; He was a strict Pharisee would couldn't divert from the Law - not until He met the risen Christ, the fulfilment of that Law.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    Page 2.

    b. Matthew 5:17-19. Another clear Scripture showing that the Law was good but people, as sinners, could never keep it. So Jesus said that He came to fulfil the Law, not to destroy it. What do you make of that statement? Remembering that Jesus' coming was still in the period of the Old Covenant (i.e. of Law), so He could speak of the worth of the Law (v 19), but also to say (v 20), that "on top of it, your righteousness must exceed that of the Pharisees (who were known to be sticklers for the Law plus adding many of their own)". Was this possible? Jesus knew that man could never gain acceptance to Heaven based on the obedience of the Law; so He said that He came to fulfil the Law. So how did He fulfil the Law? I'll let you give me your answer.

    c. I will leave off quoting the Pauline epistles, as you have turned your ear against them & the other epistles. But you ask: "But is it really true that the death of Jesus on the cross is the only way of salvation?" Have a look at John 14:6; 10:11-18; Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45; John 6:33. All these passages speak of Jesus laying down His Life. But I hear you say that they don't have the words "way of salvation". Then it would show that you do not really want to understand Jesus' prime purpose of coming; all these verses show that He came to die so that man might have a new life in Heaven & not go to Hell.

    Yasser, your comments are interesting to the point that it has me guessing as to your religious position. If you are part of the other two monotheistic faiths, I can understand your questions. But if you are of a Christian background, then please say so, as you seem to have knowledge of the Scriptures, but you appear to contradict everything that God had planned & set in motion from beginning of time to the coming of His Christ.

    However, I will answer your last comment to me, but not quoting from the Epistles.

    a. Mark 10:17-19. The man obviously obeyed all the Ten Commandments & Jesus was pleased about that. However, Jesus knew that the man actually trusted in his wealth more than God (v 24). So what is Jesus telling him here? The bottom line was that he actually broke the first Commandment, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me". This man probably didn't have idols in his house, but his love & trust in his wealth proved otherwise. One reason for giving the Law to Israel was to show them that they could never obey it fully. This is a reason why the Jewish leaders hated Jesus so much: He exposed their sin (i.e. outwardly they showed obedience & piety, but inwardly they were wicked - they could fool the people, but couldn't fool God with their hypocrisy).

  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on Colossians 1
    Following on my 1st response, Joshua. The JW also point out that Christ is a "a Son", John 3:16, 1 John 4:10. They see Him as a created being Hebrews 2:17. But they miss the point. Philippians 2:9 says Jesus was exalted, elevated to a higher position, promoted. But do these all miss the meaning of what is said? Is there a difference between Jesus the Son of Man, and Christ the Eternal Preexisting God, Creator of all things, Colossians 1:16.

    It is that distinction that many fail to see. The Coptic Manuscript should not be taken on its own. It might be the oldest, but that doesn't mean it is correct. Taken in context is is clear the import is The Word IS God, 2 Peter 1:3. He is Devine.
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on Colossians 1
    This is a good discussion topic, Joshua. The Jehova's Witnesses use the oldest translation, which is from a piece of a Coptic Manuscript that says in John 1 that "the Word is A God". They also believe the reference in Colossians 1:15 that Christ is "the firstborn of all creation", means Christ was created by God, just like the Angels.

    There are statements in the Bible that cast doubt on the Deity of Christ as existing always as God. That is why a study of Systematic Theology is so important for our understanding of Scripture. Peter said that what Paul says is Scripture. But some people misunderstand it, 2 Peter 3:16. Proverbs 8 says, "He was the first of creation". So which is it?

    Does your last name begin with Z ?
  • Yasser Davin - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    Bob Hilt, Peter is illiterate so how could he write a book?.....The most probable cause that Peter had a book is that Paul wrote those books to nullify his claim and serve as a badge of his apostleship.....Now, in Acts 22:9 Paul claims that when he spoke to Jesus, those traveling with him "saw the light," but "they heard not the voice." While in Acts 9:7 those who were with Paul are claimed to have "stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man."....Can you see his lies now?...

    Do we have christian names of the bible and their meaning
  • James brooks - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    CHRIS IT NOT FOR ME TO KNOW WHETHER YOU WERE PREDESTINED OR NOT.THAT,S BETWEEN GOD AND YOU.And I believe GOD was aware of everything you do before you do it. Ecclesiastes 11:5 says as you do not know what is the way of the wind,Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child,So you do not know the works of GOD who makes everything.You see I believe it,s GOD and Me, GOD and you, GOD and every individual right on up the line.Every relationship with GOD is personal.I,m reminded of what Peter asked JESUS and the answer JESUS gave him in John21:21&22.Don,t worry about the other man ,you follow Him.talking about tracts,stumbling past buildings going through crisis may all be true if GOD chooses to use it.JESUS told Nicodemus,you must be born again.WE must be born again to be able to enter into His Kingdom John 3:8 read.I believe at the appointed time-----those that GOD has chosen will acknowledge Him (JESUS)as LORD and SAVIOR to the GLORY of GOD the FATHER.(Philippians 2:11)What did Paul do, did he have any tracts to read?What did the thief on the cross do,past by a church and felt guilty for not going to church/No it was the appointed time.GOD used JESUS to accomplish salvation for the lost sheep.A free gift from GOD.What do you have to do if something is free/I say treasure it .Ephesians 2:8&9 GOD Bless.
  • Mishael on DOG SPIRITS on Deuteronomy 24:4
    Philippians 3:2 and Revelation 22:15

    Beware of dogs (Galatians 5:15), beware of evil workers, beware of the concision (Romans 2:28)

    Revelation 22:14-15.

    Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates Into the city.

    For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

    You have to stop and ponder on what real dogs do. Their noses are always where they shouldn't be, etc.

    It's stunning to ponder. I've worked with people like that. Run in packs; respect nothing; have to be the king of the pack.

    I said it was brutal.

    A spirit is a demon; dog spirit.
  • Angela - in Reply on John 11
    Chris,

    Thank you for your great reply! I am so much enjoying this website, & commenting with others about the Lord! I think you may be right about the thief on the cross because since my last comment I remembered something! When Jesus was crucified and was raised, He appeared & was talking with His disciples. He told one of them not to touch Him because He hadn't ascended into heaven yet! So, how then was He in Paradise with the thief when they gave up the ghost?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    All scripture is given by INSPIRATION OF GOD and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

    2 Timothy 3:16

    You know you are bored when you start calling people liars! In the Bible. Go take a walk. Get fresh air.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    Yasser so you are telling us the book of acts is wrong for telling us the story of Paul's conversion. The book of 2 peter that acknowledges Paul as a brother in the faith is wrong. That the Holy Spirit FAILED to warn the 11 apostles that Paul was a fake? Is that what you are telling us in your statement? I want to be sure I understand. If Paul is a fake then all the above would be true.
  • James brooks - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    The Bible teaches both GOD,S sovereignty in electing sinners to salvation (John 6:44,Romans 8:29 and Ephesians 1:4.and we are commanded to evangelize and spread the gospel(Matthew 28:16-20)Why evangelize if we are predestined?Because we were commanded to do so.I believe the gospel is Preached mostly to the believer anyway .Because the unbeliever does not want hear what you are saying any way.It is totally the work of GOD. There is away I believe,to embrace predestination,and election without having our hands bound by it,when it comes to evangelism.For scripture teaches both sovereign election and necessity of evangelizing.Paul addressed this issue in (Romans 10:13-15).R.C.Sproul commented on that passage;GOD not only foreordains the end of salvation for the elect,He also foreordains the means to that end.We are called to share the gospel and to respond in faith and obedience.So you see evangelism is still necessary in light of GOD,S sovereignty in salvation for two reasons:(1)GOD has commanded us to do it.(2)This is GOD,s chosen means of advancing His kingdom on earth.We have that privilege of being used by GOD to accomplish HIS will.What a blessing to by to bless others with the words of the BREAD OF LIFE. The apostle Paul was sent by the LORD to preach the gospel to JEW and Gentile.That by hearing they might believe,and so call on the name of the LORD and be saved.But there can be no true calling upon GOD without faith no faith without hearing no hearing without preaching and no preaching without a divine calling.Every man calls upon the god he believed in.And those that do not believe in GOD and Christ do not call on them.How shall they believe in him whom they have not heard;meaning that there is no faith in Christ without hearing of Him.There may be believing without seeing,but not believing without hearing.
  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    There is no reason to say the people Jesus was talking to weren't saved. I'm sure there were false converts back then too but the warning is to those whose names were already written in the book of life if they didn't repent.

    In the parable of the sower doesn't it say, "and they BELIEVED for a while but when persecution arose for the word's sake, they were offended..."?

    they didn't count the cost. Back around 60 to 70 AD, the Romans ran out of trees to crucify Jews on. When Jesus told his disciples to "take up your cross and come follow me", they knew exactly what could happen to them. In North Korea, they tell them if you come to Christ, it may cost you your life tomorrow. totally different than the gospel we have been given in America. This is why I am so concerned about the pre-trib teaching. It has no real warning to those. We are one of the few nations that havent' suffered real persecution. I have had a lot and mostly from churches but I evangelize quite a bit. Some have been put in prison like Kent Hovind was unjustly in 2005 for ten years in Florida. Very few have suffered anything. I hope you subscribe to my channel as I am going to show how many passages have been taken out of context or words added to the verses that are not there in the original languages to make it fit the pre-trib teaching. This is very deceptive. I care about you Jesse. You seem to be a great guy and very sound on a lot of issues. God Bless. I am sure we will talk again sometime.
  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    YOU: "Hi Robert,

    You partially answered my question, so I'll take what I can get. I have heard of the Millerites. But don't know much about them as I never took the time to do any research on that group. Also, I've heard of people being "on-fire" for the Lord. What I have learned over the years, is that most of the people who are "on-fire" people are new believers. I'm not even sure how I would describe someone being on-fire for the Lord? I remember when I was a kid growing up, I walked by a church that had the side door open and inside there were people flailing their arms around, jumping up and down, and screaming things I couldn't understand. It definitely wasn't English. I was pretty young so it scared me. There are things that stick with you your entire life, and that was one of them. I guess you can say they were "on-fire" for the Lord. I've also seen people in church that seemed to be on-fire for the Lord, but that fire seemed to be quenched as soon as they left the parking lot, and they didn't get it back until the following Sunday.

    ME: I actually got saved at a pentecostal church. Some of the stuff going on today in many of those churches might be kundalini. Actually an old grandma praying for the lost her whole Christian walk and sometimes that is all a person is able to do is equally as on-fire as a person preaching the gospel with the anointing.

    YOU:

    So when I hear of someone being on fire, that does not tell me much because I've seen people on fire burn out and leave after a few months and no longer want anything to do with the Lord. So being on-fire for the Lord does not really prove a person is truly saved. The parable of the sower comes to mind.

    ME: A fire can burn low for sure. Jesus tells those of us to come back to your first love.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 11:10
    Greg, I see your point, as Jesus could have at anytime, whether during his Ministry or standing before Pilate in judgement, done something that would show them His Divinity, or even escaped from them. But was this in God's Plan for Jesus & the World?

    John 12:27 speaks of Jesus in agony of His impending death, which meant bearing the load of mankind's sin as well, cry out to the Father to "save Him from this hour; but for this cause came I unto this hour". So Jesus had it in His Power to thwart the wicked plots of the Jews & Pilate, but refrained because of the wiser Plan of God for dealing with our sins.

    Even after His Resurrection, he could have given witness to His Divinity & the Power of God, & no doubt that would have shaken them to the core. But would all be convinced? Would 'the people of planet Earth' in the future take note of that witness by Jesus? Jesus gave the story of 'the rich man & Lazarus' who had died (Luke 16:19-31) which gives us insight to this. The rich man, in Hades, is in torment & longs for his five brothers on Earth to be warned that they don't come to the place he was at. Jesus replied, that the Scriptures were available to them to learn about this, but the rich man pleaded that Lazarus who was in comfort should be sent to his brothers to warn them (as one coming from the dead). But Jesus' reply: "If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead." So Jesus knew that even His presentation to the people after His Resurrection, may convince some, but not all, & of course the rest of us would very likely also reject Him, as so many do now.

    And besides all this, all things that Jesus did, was according to His Father's Plan. And this included, for reasons not revealed, that Jesus should not promote His Resurrection except his revelation to those closest to Him & for this witness to be carried into all the world by His servants, as those who were there to see it all.

  • Yasser Davin - in Reply on Isaiah 66
    Chris, obeying the law or the commandments is the key to Paradise as Jesus said on Mark 10:17-19, Matthew 5:17-19....It is only Paul's teaching's of eliminating the law ( Romans 3:28) and relied only on the death and ressurection of Jesus because according to him without the crucifiction and resurection there is no salvation....But is it really true that the death of Jesus on the cross is the only way of salvation?....And if it is, where in the 4 canonical gospels did Jesus said that my death on the cross is the only way of salvation?..But if you can't find, I conclude that the theology of death and resurection is Paul's own theology and has nothing to do with the real teachings of Jesus.....See also Ezikiel 18:20-21
