    Of the churches I've attended they never had a court or an official structure to settle disputes within the church body, but after reading 1 Cor 6 I wonder if that's what it means. Paul emphasizes how we should be separate from the world's way of doing things, that believers will even judge angels so surely we can handle our own petty disputes.

    Disputes I've had in the past haven't been with members of my specific church, however, so I wonder if it implies some kind of inter-church cooperative dispute resolution service or if it just means within one church location. Does anyone have any thoughts on this topic?

    Good evening all. From my own observations. One reason I love a believer's Baptism is a believer's testimony. Even more wonderfully so when this believer is still a young person. In close congregations and in simple Christian homes we witness many young person testimonies and we also were blessed to have watched the child grow up and mature. Many times part of a testimony is a simple burden, a lack of faith, a lie with friends, teacher or family that was forgiven. This testimony in our churches is a public testimony for any person in the building to witness. The testimony in words is simple, yesterday (so to speak) they were burdened and they prayed for forgiveness and Jesus answered their prayer. Now they felt their burden lifted and many claim His peace is now ruling. A few questions from those in attendance may be asked like "do you love everyone?" or "do you believe that Jesus has forgiven your sins?" A sister or brother, uncle or aunt or teacher,etc.. may give testimony that they thenselves witness a change in this new believer's life. It is the spirit that the congregation is looking for, does it witness to their spirit. A show of hands for support from the congregation may occur. A question might be asked then "do you desire to be Baptized" with an affirmative, Baptism is soon arranged. This event is always a blessing and the proving together by God's Spirit in the body makes a very close congregation and congregations are very close with each other within the Church. I think most young people and older would rarely have their born again experience in Church more likely alone with God. I do know exceptions though.
    I have questions concerning the disposition of the body after death. I have often had comments from people about my intent to be cremated when I die. They ask how I can be resurrected if I have been cremated. To me, it is not about what is done with the shell that carried me through life, but the new body I will have on that day of resurrection. I believe that the God who formed us has the power to reform us. In short, He has my DNA as He created it!

    People point to the Jewish practice of entombment, including that of Jesus. I believe it to be a personal decision, and that our God who created us, provided our salvation by stepping from heaven to die for us, also has the power to reform us whether we have rotted and seeped into the Earth or reduced to bone chalk. Death was defeated by Jesus death on the cross, and risen again. The message is that God cannot be killed, a grave could never hold him, and that He is life eternal. He has given that gift to us as well when we accept it and trust in His promise.

    I love to go outside on cloudless nights and marvel at the very small glimpse of His creation. The vastness of the heavens is breathtaking! Can the same Creator of such splendor gather every molecule of me even from every corner of Earth or depths of the seas? Gaze into the splendor of the sky and be assured; yes, He can!

  • Jema
    May I ask , what do people think about Matthew Ch 5 V 8 , considering that we are told that no man hath seen God , no man can see God and live etc ? Is this a contradiction ? What do people think about this please ?
  • RED APPLE TREATY 4 ME ONLY on Job 12:5
    Job 12:9-11

    9Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of theLordhath wrought this?

    10In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

    11Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?

    12With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.

    13With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.

    Do you believe that doth ear try words? the ancient wisdom can be use today and the keys unto woman?

    I believe every one is born of God and has to have the ears to hear from him and mouth to eat from God but I still feel they choose whether or not how they have life.

    Yes I believe and for me the ancient wisdom of God will work in current today with the keys of life unto woman! And I'm a private example and choose life from God to lengthen my days.

    this is regarding Judgment, we will all be judged upon our works and deeds, I heard recently that a person that has lived a holy life and has strayed from Sin will be rewarded differently than a person that may have lived a sinful life and did not become Saved until later in life, once in His kingdom of Heaven what rewards will the "more holy life led man receive differently than the recently saved man? We will reach the gates of Heaven which is the goal, is there a reward system once you have crossed into Heaven? Can someone pleae explain to me? Reference Bible verses if possible

    To condemn sin in the flesh.

    What does that mean and can anyone born of Adam do it?

    If it means to judge against it or to sentence it. What is required to achieve this? Christ!


    It's the fact that he in doing so, he destroyed the power and penalty of sin is where and how he condemned sin.

    (For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.) Romans 8:2,

    Adam was a living soul.

    There are those born of Adam. "At one time we all were"

    Jesus "A quickening spirit" ( God manifested in the flesh,) Born from above! "God/Christ spirit".

    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:


    This life giving spirit of God in the flesh could not sin.

    Christ didn't become a life giving spirit at Calvary.

    Christ was a perfect Lamb "led" to slaughter. He didn't "become" perfect at Calvary!

    An unblemished Lamb chosen for sacrifice is perfect before you sacrifice him.

    Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; Hebrews 2:14.

    Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

    Christ done what the law could not do. Condemn sin in the weak flesh.

    This is the sin in our members that Paul speaks of in Romans 7:23.

    God bless.

    "God sent his word and healed them for their destructions"(Ps.107:20;1-2) God established his mercy and Psalmist speaks,"His mercy endureth forever/ Let the redeemed of the lord say so." Here the word of God covers the entire world. Water serves as a symbol for their deliverance as well as for destruction. "But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground."(Ge.2:6). In the wilderness the Spirit foreshadows the Advent of Jesus Christ, "What shall we drink?/ And he( Moses) cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet." Later we have Elim "twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters."(Ex.15:25-25). The Spirit uses it to develop on of the Two witnesses of cloud and pillar of fire and these are angels ("Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire"-Ps.104:4-6) Martyrdom of Two Witnesses shall explain culmination of Gospel outreach from heaven(fire) and the earth (water)." And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them."(Re.11:7) Their power is backed by the Word become flesh,"and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days," The number is a clue to him.

    v.4 "These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth." Zechariah vision is about Zion and by Min-Max mode of narrative Zerubbabel refers the specific to the end times."These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."(Ze.4:14)

    What were the prerequisites to become a Pharisee?
    Question: The first chapter in Genesis, I've been taught that earth and heaven were already established and THEN it became void and without form when Satan decided he wanted to rule. Any thoughts?
  • Jema
    One of the difficult things for me , in regard to forgiveness , is being able to let go of the pain . If someone has done something very bad to you ,and you decide to forgive them , that's good but , how do you let go of the pain that they have caused you ? Your forgiveness might be genuine but what if the pain of what they did to you is still there ? How do we get rid of that pain ? In my experience the only way to ease these pains is through prayer to God to ask Him to heal the painful wound . Thy Kingdom Come .
    In Revelation 11:3 what are names of the two witnesses
  • Hadassah
    Shabbat shalom. Today is the Sabbath. The sabbath is not any day of our choosing. God said the seventh day. God sets the rules for how he is to be worshipped. This seventh day will become a major issue soon. The "mark" of authority of the Catholic Church is Sunday worship. The Catholic Church is the beast (the institution- not the people). The dragon is the devil. The lamb like beast is the United States. The false prophet is the Protestant churches which have aligned themselves with the Vatican.

    The "mark" of Gods authority is the seventh day worship. The fourth commandment is written like a legal document outlining Gods right to rule. This is a serious issue. Who will you obey? Soon, people will not be able to buy or sell without the "mark" of the beast. Like a social credit score in china, anyone who does not obey will lose access to banking.

    Isaiah 58:13-14

    13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

    14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

    The FEAR of GOD

    Very little of the fear of the LORD is seen in the lives of people. Very little fear of the LORD is being witnessed among those who claim they have faith in GOD. How do I know this? Because the bible says "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of WISDOM" Proverbs 9:10 It is evident among us, that there's not too many operating under the wisdom, and guise of the LORD. What do we need? Do we need a bright light to shine out the heavens causing us to go blind before we acknowledge the only ONE true GOD? People are either too distracted, or their bored out of their GORD. Have we invited too much of the world into our lives? Jesus said in John 17:16 "They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world." With that we should be less inclined from going from the things of GOD, to being godly, or holy. Is that boring to some? Probably. Thanks to so many in our pulpits, who feel the need for worldly invention rather than good old fashioned prayer, many have sloped. Some people don't even know how to pray. Prayer should be instinctive for any child of GOD. Godliness, or holiness is looked at as Old fashioned. Who told you those lies? Let me guess. If a genuine fear of GOD doesn't start to make it's way back into the hearts of believers, there won't be a single person among you operating in God's love. On the contrary we will witness a forgery, and there won't be anything solid to grasp onto. Toss me a raft, and you get a twig instead, if we even get that! No more fear of GOD can be seen in our world. It has vanished like the wind. When was the last time you bowed your face to the ground? Not in front of people, because if your doing that you have something wrong with you. Is putting on a show in front of people showing me, and everyone else how holy you are? No, you have your reward. I sigh in disgust over these facts, and they are facts. We can either get it right, and change the way we do things, or you can be like clouds without rain. Offering nothing.

    The True Gospel (part 4)

    The true gospel is transparent to nationality or economic status or political standing. It has nothing to do with economic prosperity or with socio-political issues. When the churches become involved in political activism or social or economic issues, they forget that the task of the believers is to be an ambassador of the kingdom of God. When Jesus was placed on trial for his life at the behest of the chief priests, Jesus said to Pontius Pilate ( John 18:36)

    36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

    Concerning political rulers, the Bible commands in Romans 13

    1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

    The true gospel has been emasculated in our day as the churches have become more involved with the social and physical and political issues of the day, which in themselves have nothing to do with the true gospel. Sure, Jesus fed the 5,000 who had come to hear him, but that was not his primary mission, and later we read in John 6:15

    15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

    The True Gospel (part 3)

    Christ did not make atonement for sin to give us whole bodies, as many teach. That will only take place at the resurrection of the last day when we shall instantly be changed from corruption to incorruption, and from mortal to immortal. Our present bodies are fashioned from the dust of the ground and shall return to the dust. When mankind fell into sin, God cursed the ground from which man was formed. Surely, it can be said, if Christ died to give us physical health or physical healing, then the gospel is an abject failure, because each and every day, approximately 150,000 people on average die all over the world. They die for a variety of reasons, most of which relate to physical disease of one form or another. If they became a true child of God, are they prevented from physically dying? No. If someone who is sick becomes well again, is the faith of that person what healed him? God can heal, but God can heal in the life of one who is not saved just as quickly as one who is saved. The emphasis of the gospel is on the spiritual, not the physical. The believers who have experienced the first resurrection, namely the resurrection of their sin-sick souls, shall receive a brand new incorruptible spiritual body at the last day.

    When Christ and the apostles performed miracles and healed the sick and gave sight to the blind, those were physical portraits pointing to some spiritual aspect. Once Christ went back to heaven and the apostles died, any miracles of that kind ceased. When Christ healed the sick, he did so to demonstrate that he has power on earth to forgive sins.

    Matthew 9 (see also Mark 2:10; Luke 5:24)

    6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

  • Hadassah
    Bible Preacher,

    Jesus Christ was running the show in the Old Testament.

    He spoke to Abraham before burning Sodom and Gomorrah. He was the angel on the threshing floor that David saw. Jacob struggled with him before meeting essau. He is the angel that Joshua saw and said "are you for us or against us?".

    The Angel of the Lord is Jesus! The entire Bible is him! Doesn't that lift your heart up? To know that Jesus is involved in every single aspect of humanity? Jesus is mighty to save! He will bring us home! Praise the LORD!
