Bible Questions

  • Peter is Back - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    I am so happy to know you are well and in good spirit. I know Chris will be glad to know you are praising God and being a blessing to all those that know you.

    I'll keep stopping in to see you, ok?

    You're kinda like me: we think about things a lot. Keep most of it close to the vest.
  • Bible Food Protection laws work - in Reply on Isaiah 66:17
    You may want to google a news story about a million pound shipment of pork that was seized by border patrol; China trying to sneak it into the USA. President Trump had those shipments stopped.

    It's reported that the meat is tainted with swine flu (H1N1-A) flu virus. It looks like we buy their cheap meat and they buy our good meat for more money. Big business rules? Shocking. I just kicked my BLT habit.
  • Justification of the Believer - in Reply on Romans 6
    You had only to receive Jesus as your Savior and Lord. Free to you, but it cost Him his Life. Turn off the tv and Read your Bible first, when you get home. -Mishael-

    "A forensic term, opposed to condemnation. As regards its nature," "it is the judicial act of God, by which he pardons all the sins" "of those who believe in Christ, and accounts, accepts, and" "treats them as righteous in the eye of the law. In addition to the pardon of sin, justification declares that all the claims of the law" are satisfied in respect of the justified. It is the act of a judge and not of a sovereign. The law is not relaxed or set "aside, but is declared to be fulfilled in the strictest sense;" and so the person justified is declared to be entitled to all the advantages and rewards arising from perfect obedience to the law (Romans 5:1-10). "It proceeds on the imputing or crediting to the believer by God "himself of the perfect righteousness, active and passive, of his" "Representative and Surety, Jesus Christ (Romans 10:3-9)." Justification is not the forgiveness of a man without "righteousness, but a declaration that he possesses a" "righteousness which perfectly and for ever satisfies the law," "namely, Christ's righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 4:6-8)." "The sole condition on which this righteousness is imputed or credited to the believer is faith in or on the Lord Jesus "Christ. Faith is called a "condition," not because it possesses" "any merit, but only because it is the instrument, the only" instrument by which the soul appropriates or apprehends Christ "and his righteousness (Romans 1:17; 3:25, 26; 4:20, 22; Phil." 3:8-11; Galatians 2:16). "The act of faith which thus secures our justification secures also at the same time our sanctification (q.v.); and thus the doctrine of justification by faith does not lead to "licentiousness (Romans 6:2-7). Good works, while not the ground," are the certain consequence of justification (6:14; 7:6)

    Hello, perhaps your comments are more for Mishael, yet they came to me as well.

    These verses in Luke Chapter 10 speak to my heart.

    Luke 10:38-42

    Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received them into her house.

    And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.

    But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

    And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

    But one thing is needful, and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

    I am too much like Martha, while it was and is, and will always be, that Jesus justified Mary in her faith and by her faith.

    I hope this helps answer both of your questions.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Luke 17:3
    You'll have to pick a book and verse. The best way to know what it means, is to read the Bible every day; take notes.

    Many good Pastors teaching on FM Radio 24 hours a day. You'll have to dial around to find them. There's 1 channel on AM radio.

    I don't know about where you live? See what you can find. With churches closed it gets a bit more dicey to hear Gods Word.

    There won't be anymore of that once The Antichrist is revealed in real life.

    Be born again and ask for the Holy Spirit to come alongside of you to Help, Comfort, Teach scripture, explain what you are reading; tell you when you are straying off course; to hold you when you cry and also show you what Ephesians 6 is all about.

  • A Christian - in Reply on Romans 6
    I have so much to ask you and hopefully I'll get that chance in the near future. But for now, I'll start by asking this; When someone claims to be a Christian but they work 40+ hours a week at their job and only donates maybe 2-hours of their time to reading the Bible and/or learning about God (includes church vists). When looking at the numbers, these numbers are consistant with a large group of people today. What their average week would look like. Unless their job consists of "Christian Duties," how can their life be justified?

  • Age of Accountability - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    The need for genuine discipline doesn't usually arise until about midway through the child's second year. At this time, boys and girls become capable of understanding what you're telling them to do, and as a result they can very gently be held responsible for their behavior. A firm "no!" or a MILD slap on the hand can be effective in certain situations.

    On other occasions it may be far more helpful to mandate a brief "time out" (two or three minutes at the most) or take away a favorite toy for a short period of time. Through the next 18 months, you will gradually establish yourself as the benevolent boss if you can consistently mean what you say and say what you mean. A firm but loving approach is generally the best policy in every phase of the child-rearing process.

    There is some great verses on child rearing in the Book of Proverbs.

    I think parents are afraid of lawsuits if they correct a child. The Bible actually says: if you never correct your child: you hate him.

    One of the worst things for a kid is to use a TV to keep the child distracted or entertained.

    Youtube teaches things you do not want them to learn! If you want them to grow up and follow Jesus someday; don't expose them to worldly and selfish tv content. Video games teach nothing useful.

    I started reading short Psalms to my grandson at naptime and bedtime. He's 7 and became a Christian a year ago.

    If YOU don't teach it: they will not learn it.

    Go see how many parents are in the prayer request room asking prayer for adult drug addict children? Heartbreaking.

  • WHAT CAN WE EAT or IS IT CLEAN - in Reply on Isaiah 66:17
    Romans 14:14

    I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

    Romans 14:15

    But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

    John 6:27

    Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

    Comment: basically nothing is forbidden if you PRAY over your food before eating it.

    I pray this often if I get take out food:

    "Lord thank you for your provision and the blessing of food. I ask You to bless and sanctify it and make it healthy for me to eat. I receive this meal in the Name of Jesus. Amen!"

    I picked this variety of verses to show that meat eaters and vegetarians can all eat what they want. With joy and appetite.

    Also, There is spiritual meat that the Christian can ask the Lord to give to him. It has to do with deeper truth. Trust the Holy Spirit (your teacher who oversees your growth) to give you the meat.

    In this day and age, I always ask the Lord to bless and sanctify the food. We don't know where it comes from, do we?

  • Phyllis on Psalms 91:7
    What is age of accountability
  • T - in Reply on Isaiah 66:17
    Swine being forbidden was a Mosaic Law, found in Leviticus, in the Old Testament.

    In the New Testament we now refer to Mark 7:15 for your answer.

    What we eat and goes through our stomach doesn't defile us. It is what comes out of us, from the heart, that defiles us.

    So if you enjoy bacon have an extra piece!

    Have you seen the videos of Coke being poured over raw pork? Quite gross. Just ensure you cook your pork thoroughly.
  • Regina Bryant on Isaiah 66:17

    Oh ok I mean for example Joel 2: 11

  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on Psalms 34:8
    "O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him". This clearly tells us to taste first and then to see His goodness. How do we "taste" of His goodness? I suggest it is by the water, milk, and meat of the Holy Scriptures. "Water, milk, and meat" are used in Scripture as word pictures for God's Word.

    Water

    John 4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."

    John 4:13-14 Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."

    Milk and Meat

    1 Corinthians 3:2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able;

    Hebrews 5:12-13 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

    1 Corinthians 14:34-36 KJV

    Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. [35] And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. [36] What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
  • Searching the word SOFT - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    Job 23:16

    For God maketh my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth me:

    Job 41:3

    Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?

    Psalms 55:21

    The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

    Psalms 65:10

    Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

    Proverbs 15:1

    A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

    Proverbs 25:15

    By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.

    Isaiah 38:15

    What shall I say? he hath both spoken unto me, and himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.

    Matthew 11:8

    But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

    Luke 7:25

    But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.

    *********

    I didn't find any soft headed people. I'm not sure what that means biblically either.

    What version of Bible are you using?
