    Paul,

    If I can just add one thing to some already great answers, all the armies of the world could not have taken Christ. No earthly power could have taken Him. Jesus Christ came and freely gave Himself to the cross, fulfilling the purpose for which He came.

    Jessie there is not mention of the church after Revelation 3? Have you not heard of the bride of Christ?

    There is no separate Jewish bride and a different Christian bride. There is only one bride and the Lord is not a polygamist with multiple brides. Believing Christians are called saints at times. If you do not see the church it is because you are not looking for her. The Church is going to be overcome in the flesh by the antichrist and be purified of her lukewarm faith.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    John L - you need to reconcile who Jesus is before you are concerned with the Noahide laws that are not in the Bible.

    1 Timothy 3:16 "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

    Who is this about? "God was manifest in the flesh"

    John Chapter 10:28 And I (Jesus) give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand. (How can Jesus, if a mere man give eternal life?)



    29 My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's hand.

    30 I and [my] Father are one. I and [my] Father are one, I and [my] Father are one.

    31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

    32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

    33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

    (Jesus never told them they misunderstood)

    How about Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    Only God can forgive sins and Jesus told some their sins were forgiven.

    So is Jesus a deceiver or is he God in the flesh as 1 Timothy 3:16 states?

    Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us US make man in our image, after OUR our likeness:

    Should we believe the Lord is speaking to the angels?

    Please do a study on the Godhead and quit being concerned about made up laws that exist only in the minds of antichrist rabbis.
  • Bob Hilt on Ezekiel 8:14
    The Temple of Solomon was destroyed and is not facing any direction today.

    God the Father allowed Rome to give a message to those who rejected Christ and his sacrifice

    in 70 AD when they invaded Jerusalem and destroyed the Temple. Thus fulling the prophecy of Jesus in Matthew 24 when he said not on stone would be upon another. Judaism as a religious practice with animal sacrifices ceased to exist.

    The wailing wall is not part of the Temple, unless Jesus was a false prophet. I believe Jesus, not those who pray at the wailing wall. The wailing wall is part of an old Roman fort.

    Matthew 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

    2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 6:16
    Dear DH,

    Since you feel guilt and remorse of your past sin that's a good thing. That means you genuinely regret it, but if you confessed this and repented to God already then God has already forgiven you. Hebrews 8:12. The only step remaining is you forgiving yourself and giving that burden to God. If you refuse to forgive yourself, then you might ask: what Jesus dying for you not enough? Galatians 2:21 It is for everyone else, so why not for you? He loves you that much to die for you and forgive your sin even when you mess up, even when you know better, can you accept that? Do you accept his gift?

    >I feel it's unforgivable

    Let's challenge this statement. This is an assumption, because you don't truly know that. It's also inconsistent with the Bible. The Bible says all sins are covered except for only one, blasphemy of the holy spirit, and that's not what you did. If your statement was true it would also be true for others too, but its not. There are countless others who have also gone through this and feel 100% forgiven. If its true for them how could a different standard apply for you?

    The Bible already made its promises so if you don't believe the Bible that is another matter. You're forgiven, wiped away, and if you follow Christ you this sin is forgotten: Hebrews 8:12. It takes faith to believe the Words of God and to apply them. It clearly says you're forgiven. Believe and celebrate that and go and 'sin no more'. John 8:11

    God bless you!
  • Seventh day is sabbath - in Reply on James 1
    Chris:

    a. The Sabbath was given to man Mark 2:27 at creation Genesis 2:2-3 it's not a day that God required just for the Israelite's to keep, which is why the 4th commandment starts with "remember" it is because the children of Israel had forgotten through hundreds of years of slavery in Egypt.

    b. Jesus came to this world not to destroy the law and the prophets Matthew 5:17, The law (10 commandments) says to remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

    The breaking of bread in Acts 20:7 is referring to eating (food) (see Acts 20:11)

    1 Corinthians 16:2 the "first day of the week" Paul is referring to putting aside your offerings (collection for the saints) starting on the first day of the week (Sunday) (see 1 Cor.16:1)

    Revelation 1:10 John was in vision on the sabbath (Lord's day is the sabbath, For the son of man is Lord, even of the sabbath day. (see Matthew 12:8)

    c. What was nailed to the cross was the "ceremonial laws" not the 10 commandments. In (Matthew 27:51) the veil of the temple was rent in two when Jesus died on the cross, the ceremonial laws that God had required since sin came into the world (sacrificing animals ect) was no longer needed because the ultimate sacrifice had just been made and that was the shedding of blood of a sinless Jesus on the cross.

    Matthew 5:18 One jot or one tittle shall not wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter into the gates of the city.
  • Balmlife on Psalms 91:1
    Saints of God, I have experienced God in a way that I cannot explain for the past 5 years. All that I can say is that if it had not been for God, I would have been destroyed. I personally can attest to the ability of my mighty God to shelter from the storms of life. Everyday He is teaching me how to dwell in His presence. Are there distractions? "Yes, but with the distractions, I hear His voice calling me deeper into His presence. He love us men and women of God. The more we need Him, the closer He is willing to come into our messes, turning our messes into moments of victory!
  • Lynett Martin on Psalms 1:6
    What book can I read when you have problems in this areas?

    2. Praying

    This is what the commentary says about the scapegoat:

    16:21 All the iniquities - He mentions iniquities, transgressions, and sins, to note sins of all sorts, and that a free and full confession was to be made, and that the smallest sins needed, and the greatest sins were not excluded from, the benefit of Christ's death here represented. On the head - Charging all their sins and the punishment due to them upon the goat, which tho' only a ceremony, yet being done according to God's appointment and manifestly pointing at Christ upon whom their iniquities and punishments were laid, #Isaiah 53:5|,6, it was available for this end. And hence the Heathens took their custom of selecting one beast or man, upon whom they laid all their imprecations and curses, and whom they killed as an expiatory sacrifice for their sins, and to prevent their ruin. A fit man - Heb. a man of time, that is, of years and discretion, who may be trusted with this work. Into the wilderness - Which signified the removal of their sins far away both from the people, and out of God's sight. And here the goat being neglected by all men, and exposed to many hazards from wild beasts, which were numerous there, might farther signify Christ's being forsaken both by God and by men, even by his own disciples, and the many dangers and sufferings he underwent. The Jews write, that this goat was carried to the mountain called Azazel, whence the goat is so called, #Leviticus 16:10. and that there he was cast down headlong. By Wesley

    d. to those that then require the keeping of the Sabbath as mandatory even for Christians, does the disobedience to this Law then translate to sin & what then is the result? In other words, is there hope of salvation for the 'Christian' who refuses to recognize the Sabbath Day? Is our salvation dependent on the Cross plus the keeping of the Sabbath?

    e. However, is it possible to keep the Sabbath, indeed the whole Law as one would so be bound to, & not commit the sin of syncretizing the Law of Works & Grace? Would not then the observance of the Sabbath be a sin, as it shows the believer placing himself back under the Law for salvation or to assist in it? So, a Sabbath-keeper is obliged to 'keep the whole Law & if he offends in one point, he is guilty of all (Js 2:10).
  • Chris - in Reply on James 1
    Page 1.

    Greg, you gave a good account in support of keeping the Sabbath day holy, but could you consider the following as the other side of this teaching?

    a. Israel was marked out by God to be His chosen people: to set His Love upon them & through whom His Son would come to reconcile man to God. As such there were two clear signs that proved to the nations about them, that this people were Holy, separated to God: the giving of the Law & Circumcision. No other nation received this instruction & compulsion to obey.

    b. when Jesus came into this World, His Ministry & His calling together of the twelve, they were still, in what we regard, the Old Testament, or Old Covenant, even though the Bible was divided differently. It was only natural, in keeping of the Law & occasion to worship, that the Sabbath was still recognized as the day of rest. After He rose from the grave & ascended to Heaven, the believers still worshipped on the Sabbath if attending the synagogue, but the 'first day of week' began to be recognized as the Lord's Day & the Church began to worship on that day (Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Revelation 1:10, in reference to the Lord's Day as a recognized day set aside).

    c. as part of the New Covenant, we understand that it was made through HIS Blood (unlike the blood of the sacrifices under the Old) which not only gave all who expressed faith in Christ's Work a New & Living Way back to God, but also "nailed to the Cross the handwriting of Ordinances that were against them" (Colossians 2:14). This now redundant Law signified that any obedience to it & binding of the Law to ourselves was no longer compatible to the New Covenant: indeed, to observe the Law of Works & the Law of Grace did despite to the Work of the Cross. The two cannot be syncretized. Galatians 2:21: "for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain."

  • Will The Church Crawl Away and Shrivel - in Reply on Exodus 4
    You need to take time in the Book of Acts. This is the Church, Jesus died for. He didn't disappear and leave them alone. Only until Pentecost. When that Mighty Rushing Wind came through the Upper Room, of The Promised Holy Spirit; the disciples were filled so full of His presence that they exploded in praise as the Tongues of Fire they were seeing lept around the room over their heads. It was more than glorious.

    The people in the street saw and heard the disciples. They were energized with indescribable joy. This is what Jesus had told to them! This was the fulfilling of promise. The church was up and aflame. It spilled out into the streets. The disciples were no longer afraid and doubting; barely hanging onto faith.

    We can have that. When we obey Jesus and do as he said at the end of the Book of John; we will experience that power and joy.

    I hear very little preached on FAITH very much. Jesus is still saving and healing people. Very few have a pulsating faith to reach out and take hold of Jesus. Does anyone know 10 healing scriptures by heart?

    We all need to ask Jesus for another refilling of the Holy Spirit. If you feel dry and lifeless, just ASK HIM! We need the anointing oil of the Holy Spirit. If we read and read and read the Bible and there is no outflow onto others; we're clogged.

    How do I know all this? I've rarely spoken on this. I know that the Holy Spirit does Home visitations. I experienced an event that is burned into my heart and brain and eyes. That's how I know the Holy Spirit is looking for those who will take Him at His Word. We are his disciples now.

    If all that happens is, in a chair railing and ranting against the Jews of Israel; not much is going to happen. The Jews are Jesus's personal business. He don't need your help.

    Don't dry up on the ground like a piece of toast, that the birds come and carry away.

    Be refilled with oil; be anointed by the Holy Spirit.

    John 10:30 - How do you interpret this verse?

    John 1

    Confusion around this topic isn't surprising as God can mean the father, the son, and holy spirit, or 'God' can mean just the father. Jesus is called Lord and the son of God and He prayed to God the father. Jesus has many other nick names too.

    Do any of these verses influence your perspective?

    2. If someone is a sinner, drug addict, pornographer, idolatrous, lost.. etc. do we not pray for them? Or do we simply leave them for the fire.

    Son, daughter, wife, husband, friend, stranger?

    I understand rebuking evil and I understand praying for the lost sheep.

    So where are the fundamentals from Christ for those who say to not pray for a nation, as a whole. The whole being composed of again, groups and then individuals.

    Thank you!

    In reply to Bob Hilt's comment

    So while many people ARE currently praying for America are you saying to NOT pray for America? According to the scripture you provided that "relates to America." Along with your statement of believing this is where America is at..

    We would be speaking, here, of "America" as a nation, or a people. Correct? Within people we then break down America into individual groups and then individual people which includes: gentiles, pastors, nuns, churches, government, boy scouts, fast food workers, counselors, etc. Wouldn't I be correct in assuming that "not praying for America" would ultimately mean to not pray for anyone living in America? Americans? Is this what you are saying?

    I ask simply and sincerely with no offense meant whatsoever! I want to understand your comment. Your opinion. As well as those who also refuse to pray for, us.

    I do believe America to be the New Babylon. I live here. I don't like the majority of what I see and hear in regards to what is acceptable and the norm.

    But everyone here, in America, is not part of the antichrist movement and did not choose to be born and reside in America. Not all here associate themselves with the world view of America.

    So how can one possibly say to not pray, for America? There is no single group or people here who define America unless you speak of the government. Even then, as I'm sure most are aware, division is rampant. How is America defined as one singular, "thing?" ..beyond a nation or country.

    So the genuine question, simply; How can anyone say to not pray for America? In my opinion that would be saying to not pray for anyone or anything in America as they or "we" are all a lost cause.

    I believe in praying for America. I pray for the entire world. I pray for the people in the world.

    I'm familiar with the scripture you posted. I'm seeking an explanation of your comment or like minds on this topic.

    Again, this by no means is intended as negative. I seek understanding.

    God Bless

    Isaiah Chapter 53

    Lamb Of God:

    Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

    For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

    He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

  • Revelation 2011-15 place of unsaved dead - in Reply on James 1
    11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

    12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the BOOK OF LIFE and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.

    13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

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

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

    Romans Chapter One, shows us that people are WITHOUT excuse as to why they did not see God as The Creator of all that we enjoy...His Creation. It doesn't require a church experience or a preacher to convince people that SOMEONE MADE ALL that they see with their eyes, every day of their life.

    The Bible has been in existence and able to be purchased for personal use for hundreds of years. The Dead Sea Scrolls in existence even longer.

    How long has Christmas been celebrated? It wasn't commercialized like it is now.

    Don't you see that God was always here, waiting for us to see our need for a Savior.

    I believe that children under the age of accountability who died or were murdered will be admitted to heaven. Scripture supports that.

    God made it rain hail that was in flames on a cloudless day, yet Pharaoh would not accept God.

    Scripture says people in hell pray for their living loved ones to get saved.

    I know of false teachers, now, who teach there is no hell.

    Decide to choose LIFE, so you and those you love can choose Jesus and be ready for heaven. John 3 (Click on the link)

  • Paul on Exodus 4
    Is God responsible for babies being born deaf, dumb, blind? or with other disabilities?

    I don't know. I believe the son's of perdition have much to do with the evils of this world, including birth defects.

    But this I know, Christ went about doing good and healed multitudes of people.

    If persons are born defected, Christ can heal them.

    It's sad to know they took our God and hung Him on a tree saying "others he saved but himself he cannot."

    When goodness is deliberately destroyed, we can only expect bad to happen.
  • John L - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    Bob Hilt,

    Again, it seems that you may be confusing "Jews" with children of the Devil.

    As YOU state.... These people CLAIM CLAIM CLAIM to be Jews. They are LYING LYING LYING.

    The words you quote concerning Jews are those CLAIMING, CLAIMING, CLAIMING, to be Jews.

    What does Jesus say concerning those CLAIMING CLAIMING CLAIMING to be Jews? THEY ARE LYING. They are of the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN (Revelation 2:9, 3:9). No longer Jews; and may never had been.

    What is their fruit? People are judged by words and actions.

    A Christian that stops believing in Jesus is no longer a Christian.

    People of any descent or country origin can live in the land of Judea and be called an inhabitant of the land of Judea; a Jew.

    Just as a person of any descent or country origin living in the land of New York can be called a New Yorker.

    Most God fearing Jews consider Jesus to at the very least be a great prophet. They do not dismiss the writings of the NT as "the most evil and antisemitic book ever written, and Jesus the most evil of them all." Those are words that sound like they would come from the mouth of a child of Satan.

    I find no issue with the 7 Noahide general laws.

    The seven Noahide laws as traditionally enumerated are the following:

    Not to worship idols.

    Not to curse God.

    To establish courts of justice.

    Not to commit murder.

    Not to commit adultery, bestiality, or sexual immorality.

    Not to steal.

    Not to eat flesh torn from a living animal.

    Do you have a problem with abiding by any of these laws?

    I have issue with the interpretation of them by children of the synagogue of Satan that skews them.

    Man screws everything up.

    We DISCERN, we do not JUDGE.

    John 3:16 "For God so loved (LOVED PAST TENSE) the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

    1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

    The Lord LOVED his original sin free creation, He tells us not to love this wicked world. there is a difference.

    and no the Lord does not love everyone per the Bible

    Malachi Chapter 1:1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi 2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,

    3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

    And I hated Esau what is his heritage?

    Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

    When you know the sin of Esau this makes sense and no it was not just selling the birthright for a bowl of beans.
