    "For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?"
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on John 1
    Hi Rodney, "Rodney you say the jews called out Jesus for blasphemy for him saying was the son of God and for the trintarians that's not good enough" are you suggesting that the jews was right? have you noticed they had no problem calling him son of David? was he David son? Luke 20:41-44 And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?

    And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

    Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

    David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son? Perhaps they use son different in scripture than we do, We also loose a little in the English translation, but they got the message, He presented his deity,. John 10:30-33 (KJV) I and my Father are one.

    Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

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

    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. Believing in Jesus deity may not be a requirement for salvation, but once you're saved and begin to grow revelation through the spirit should reveal that to you. I believe we stunt our growth when we come to a conclusion about a matter and spend a life time searching the scripture to try to prove whether its right or wrong and ignore telling scriptures like John 1:1. Regardless it shouldn't cause hatred between the brothern if it does thats a greater issue. God bless be peaceful.
  • Elaine Small on Numbers 11
    I have had so many people saying that in the Bible our Lord said that HE will never put more on us than we can bear!

    Is this in the Bible?
  • Chris Powell on Revelation 11:9
    Matthew 24:14 states: And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    These 2 witness's lie in the streets dead after there testimony for 3 1/2 days. Notice how Revelation 11:9 states "togunes" and "Nations" will witness this?

    We are the first generation that could witness this based off current technologies we have today: Internet, television, phones and other means to watch live events from anywhere in the world.

    This should also make you thinnk of the technology available to implement the Mark of the Beast that will be ushered in around this same timeframe.

    Get ready folks, Jesus is coming! Have you been born again with the spirt of God? If not humble yourself before the Lord and ask for his forgiveness. He loves you and forwarns you of things to come to keep you from the torment of hell.

    We can take 2 paths in this life: straight and narrow to Jesus or wide and broad to hell. Its your choice.
  • Judy Jerde on Exodus 33:20
    If no man can see God's face and live, then please explain Exodus 24:9-11 to me that says Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and 70 elders saw the God of Israel. Was this a special circumstance as it says He did not lay His hand on them? Yet Moses was instructed to go to the cleft of the rock and just see God's back.
  • Saint Loren on Psalms 23:3
    I have been taught that God inhabits our praise. As I get references tp Psalms 23:3 yet I can not find a translation that says that. Is there such a scripture?
  • Sabrina on Psalms 62
    This is a great verse for what's going on today in this world there are so many people full of hate right now walking around angry bitter every single day I'm seeing it more and more where is the love where is God's people at? We must not let this world take away our joy and our happiness these are hard times we live in but we must stay positive we must be happy and show love to others we have to stop the bitterness we have to stop the angry attitudes and hatefulness and show love to everyone

    Hello,

    Mainly because it makes me feel bad when people condemn each other over this. Do you find anything false in it? So my post is an example of why there are 200 denominations in Christianity? Well I guess you can blame it on me. If anything I posted offended you, forgive me my brother. I apologize.
  • DiloresAlii on Exodus 13
    How did Israelites become slave in Egypt?
  • TheAmbassadors4Christorg - in Reply on Revelation 2
    What was the purpose of writing this message? We all know that there is one God. We should never debate the Godhead. Only through the Holy Spirit can it be shown the Oneness of God rather than a triune God that most people believe in this world. This is just one example why we have over 200 denominations under the umbrella of Christianity. Having over 200 denominations is not of God. There is only 1 truth. Jesus is the head of the church. How did we get to this place? Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus --- This was created by man's wisdom.

    Note: Water can exist in three forms: Solid, liquid and gas. What is common among these forms -- They all contain 2 hydrogens and 1 oxygen. But we don't call them by different names. Why? Because its still water.

    Another example --- The disciples in the book of Acts baptized in the name of Jesus Christ; this fulfilled the scriptures that Jesus told them to baptize in the 'name' of the Father, and of the Son and the Holy Spirit..... What name should we baptize in? The 12 disciples who became apostles baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Is this a coincidence? No. The Holy Spirit revealed to them the Oneness of God. When you're not baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, your sins have not been remitted (forgiven).
  • Truth seeker on 1 Kings 18
    So are false prophets, clouds with out rain etc
  • Rodney - in Reply on John 1
    Show me a verse in the Bible where the deity of Christ has any importance?

    The Jews called Jesus a blasphemer for saying he is the son of God , but for a trintarian that's not good enough ! Go figure .

    Jesus is the Son of God , if that was really understood then the trinity doctrine would be recognized for what it is . Unbiblical at least .
  • Chris - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 1
    I understand what you're saying, Dianne. We can indeed just put forward the Scriptures to each other, as answers to their questions, & leave it that. That's of course a very good start as it's only from God's Word that we read & learn. Yet properly understanding what is given by way of Bible study, preaching, etc. is necessary to help us learn more about the writer, the background, from the original texts, Scriptural comparisons, etc. Some may find this unnecessary, but I value it so that I can better understand the context that Scripture has been written in. Or else, our pastors would have a very short 3 minute message to give, if they only gave the title of their message & asked us to write down relevant Scriptures to take home & allow only the Bible to speak to us & not him. Maybe our Churches should consider adopting that style. Would it be useful though?
  • Lemach on 1 Samuel 17
    From chap16,I can't see king Saul didn't know David.King James was just joking,do you think so?
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 18
    "(So) your saying the early church didn't know who or what they worshipped even Paul."

    No, I'm not saying that. The apostles, including Paul, certainly did know the true God, even as Jesus revealed Him to them. In very truth, "He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father" (John 14:9), Jesus had not only declared to them who God was but that He, Jesus, was the human personification of God Himself.

    So can we assume that the God on His Throne in Heaven physically looked just like Jesus? Not so, for God is Spirit & none on Earth has seen Him, bar His Son. But Jesus presented to His apostles & those around, all of the Mind, the Nature, the Will, the Plans, the Holiness, the Love & Justice of God. How could He do this? Because He said, "I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father." (John 16:28)

    We can't force this Scripture to mean that Jesus came into existence because of God's Plan for Redemption, because the Greek for "I came forth (from the Father)" is 'exelthon', which means 'to go or to come out of'. And when Jesus says, "and am come into the world" the Greek here is different, 'elelutha' or 'to come, to go'. So He came 'out of the Father' to be sent (or, go) into the world. And then He says, "I leave the world, and go to the Father". Now the word is 'poreuomai' which means, 'to go or to travel'. And this implies not only his leaving the world physically, but His entrance back into Heaven, from whence He came, was not into the singular unity of the Godhead, but as a Man Who would be worshipped beside the Father, yet never losing His divinity to Him. In other words, if Jesus just came to Earth as the Word of God to men (as was spoken by the prophets) & returned to Heaven, logic says that He would have returned back into the Unity of God - just as the Holy Spirit, who is only Spirit, comes to us & goes to Heaven in the same Divine Form.

    Both Paul & the Church knew the Deity of Christ & preached it.
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 18
    Diane, I'm unsure where your question is leading to, but to answer simply: the disciples of Jesus (Matthew 10:1-4) later were referred to as apostles. A disciple essentially is a student, particularly to a Master, Rabbi, etc. where in his 'raw' state is brought into further knowledge of the prescribed Truth & by the witness of the life of the Master. An apostle is "a sent out one" or a messenger, who then takes what he has learned to teach others also & in the case of Christ's apostles, to deliver the life-saving, life-changing Gospel.

    You asked, "In the apostalic line where is paul peter john james luke ?" Peter, John, James & another 9 were disciples & apostles, with Paul coming later, "as one born out of due time" (1 Corinthians 15:8). Then folk such as Luke & most likely others who were not part of the 'inner circle' (the 12), were also 'ad hoc' disciples who doubtless pursued their careers but spent time with the Lord to learn of Him. So when the last of the apostles (John) died, the apostolic line ended, though in a sense, an apostolic work can & does continue today, as we who have also learned from the Lord, the writings of the apostles & the sages of our time, can confidently go out & share what we have learned. Of course, without having the privilege of having the apostles around to question them further on doctrines, etc., our Churches & indeed, our beliefs, will always remain divergent, e.g. on the Trinity, the Second Coming, Law & Grace, etc.
  • Richard in Christ on Revelation 2
    I don't understand why people want to condemn others who believe in God a certain way. We all worship the same God. There is only one true God and only one way to God. Through His Son Jesus Christ. Who was a free gift from our Father to pay for our sins. Having faith and giving yourself to Jesus Christ is the most important thing.

    There is only one God our Father. Should we not honor the Son as we honor the Father? Like we're told. Does not Jesus Christ have all the power and authority of the Father? Given to Him by the Father. I myself don't believe Jesus Christ is God the Father but that the Father is in Him and He in the Father. I also believe in the deity of Christ that He was with the Father before He came to earth. Like He says. Can I explain all this? No. That's what I believe and it all came to me through the Holy Bible.

    A couple verses showing God the Father is not Jesus Christ:

    Matthew 26:39 And He went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

    John 8:17-18, 17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

    18 I am one that bear witness of Myself, and the Father that sent Me beareth witness of Me.

    Hebrews 5:5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee.

    Hebrews 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us

    (2 Peter 1:17-18, 17 For He received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to Him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

    18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with Him in the holy mount.

    Why can't some believe in two, plus the Holy Ghost, which is three in this new covenant? One God.

  • I wonder what God meant in Hosea 4:5 by "I will destroy your mother." Isn't He speaking to the priests of Israel? What is the main truth behind this text?
  • Steven Spencer on Revelation 2
    Here's more scriptures in the old testament why we believe in the trinity.

    Malachi 2:17 Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or,

    ( Where is the God of judgment? ) ""Notice ch 3.1."" Malachi 3:1 (KJV) Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. ""Now let's tie this together with a few more verses"" ( Isaiah 40:3-The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.) Now let's see who came as these 2 characters. Matthew 11:10 - ( For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.) John the baptists came in the office of Elijah and God came manifested in the flesh. ( If he didn't Malachi, Isaiah and Jesus got it wrong. )
  • Esther on Genesis 32
    Food for thought. Why did the man that wrestled with Jacob touch Jacob's thigh and put it out of place? Why not Jacob's arm? Touching the thigh was a significant sign. It was for blessings. It was an oath. It was their promised word. Do you see where I am going with this? This was a spiritual encounter with a blessing to follow. We name our children what we think is a pretty name. Names in the Bible were important. We should choose wisely when naming our children.
  • Nancy lapointe on Psalms 93
    My husband just passed into His presence

    He was a sailor and loved the sea

    What are some relevant scriptures to read at his service
  • S Spencer on 1 Corinthians 13
    Acts 9:3-5 (KJV)

    I would like to elaborate on this verse a little more Because it takes a lot more energy to deny the deity of Jesus christ/Emanuel than it does to except it.

    Acts 9:3-5. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:

    And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

    And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. Here we see Saul in vs 3 he's surrounded by light, "the Glory of God that he spoke to Israel in the wilderness" then he heard a voice from the light, "Saul,Saul, why persecutest thou me" and Saul answers to the only God he knew, being he was a pharisee, WHO art thou Lord? And Jesus answered his question directly! " I AM Jesus " whom thou persecutest. Jesus was returned to his former Glory.
  • Thomas on Mark 3:7
    "But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea," What would be a rough estimate of a "great multitude"?
  • Debra - in Reply on Daniel 2:43
    The abomination of desolation has already happened twice. . It was during the time of the Maccabees. Antiochus Ephinaes arrived in Jerusalem and stopped the Jewish daily sacrifices. He brought idols of Zeus inside the Holy Temple and he slew many, many pigs inside the Holy Temple and their blood spilled inside making the Temple an abomination, and YHWH's spirit departed making the Temple desolute of Him. The Greeks then converted the Temple into a temple to Zeus

    You can read this in the book of Maccabees.

    And again when Rome sacked Jerusalem. They also slew pigs in the Temple and brought in idols to Zeus and Jupiter. The Romans converted the Temple to a Temple to Zeus and Jupiter.

    And it's going to happen again. The religious Jews in Israel have everything prepared to build another Temple.

    And it too will have pigs slain inside and pagan idols will be brought in and it will be converted to worship the earth/Gaia/Mary? Where people can come and be forgiven of their sins against the earth They can do penance and atonement to Gaia/Mary. And the Pope of Rome will sit on the throne.
  • What is The Communion Paul speaks of at Table of The Lord? I am asking here because I came up as a Roman Catholic and now after 61 years I am looking at the receiving of a physical communion at Mass as possibly being sin. Why am I asking God The Father to accept another sacrifice each Sunday though a Priest when Christ's sacrifice on the cross was and always will be The Sufficient Sacrifice allowing me to seek forgiveness directly with God The Father through Christ Jesus? Need some help here as I'm unclear at the moment.

  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Luke 4:3
    Here also is a suttle example of Jesus not rebuking Saul. Acts 9:4-5 (KJV) And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

    And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

    Now here saul at the time wasn't a believer so when he said who are thou Lord his mind was on God the father, Isn't it strange someone with Paul credentials. a pharisee of pharisees, would ask God "WHO" are thou? and Jesus answered him, " It is I Jesus.
