    Good afternoon, Kent

    I agree that the Holy Spirit is our witness to Scripture and He will guide us in our study. But I do not agree that a person does not need anyone else for Scripture says that the Holy Spirit appoints some as teachers in the body of Christ and that we are to teach one another. We are a body, we are a corporate entity, not singularly in Christ, but all believers are in Christ and are together His body. So we should remain open to learn from one another and to share our ideas about our study of Scriptures with others.

    Proverbs 11:14

    "Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

    Colossians 1:28

    "Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ."

    But there are times, also, when a person will learn straight from the Spirit. Even then every person is exhorted to not quench the Spirit...and to test all things, hold fast what is good." 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21

    1 John 4 "Be:1loved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God...."

    We all need to be yielded to the Holy Spirit, we need Him to shape our mind and understanding. We need each other, we should avoid being solitary in our day to day walk with God. We should make an effort to fellowship with others in a variety of ways and for various purposes. Studying God's Word is one of those things and purposes we should seek to do in fellowship with other believers.

    YASSS Sylvia! You are blessed and chosen by The Lord. His Spirit dwells within you. He is who will teach you. You shall have no need for anyone else. You are called, AMEN.
  • Sylvia on Colossians 1
    Col. 1. I am amazed that the Lord revealed to me in a last minute request of the Pastor for me to teach a Bible study, and having chosen this passage, He (God) gave me understanding beyond my scholastic abilities to explain to the people ( the identical) exactly what is broken down in the last paragraph on this breakdown above. Holy Spirit is TRULY a wonderful teacher on whom we can depend when we need to have an interpreter. Praise be to God on high. Hands lifted up!! :-)

    Jesse it is also interesting that in context it is talking about those who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit, thereby they will obtain God will.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Colossians 1
    Amen Brother Jesse.

    I've always interpreted that verse that way, but never knew Agathos was in there for the greek as good, boy is that needed to go with the (ALL)!! Otherwise it one can take it the other way.

    "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

    "All means anything I want' God will work it out." (INCORRECT.)

    "And we know that (ALL) things work together for (SPIRITUAL GOOD) to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

    (God's Will.) Might not be what you wanted or expected, but it's the best thing for you!

    Thanks and God bless.

    Amen and Amen; Brother Jesse, you comments of truth hit the bullseye dead center.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Colossians 1

    I don't think there's a verse that says those in Christ Jesus. You might be looking for Romans 8:28 which says, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

    The word good in this verse is the word AGATHOS which means spiritual good. Human good is Kalos. Spiritual good is Agathos. That makes a big difference because if I'm looking at it religiously, humanly, and on a horizontal physical plain, when it says "all things work together for good," that means in the human, God's going to work things out good for me in the human and in the flesh.

    But in this verse, it is the word for spiritual good. Also, notice that it doesn't say all things are good. It says that all things are going to be worked out for the good.

    What's good and bad in the human, that's our judgment system. To God, everything is good because He's doing everything. And when we have things "go wrong," in God's vocabulary, that's not even in there. "Lord, things are going wrong." To Him, everything is going right.

    We know that all things work together for good, and look at the two descriptions of the people for whom everything is working out for the good. It is to those who love God, and to those who are called according to His purpose.

    Why? Because everything's going to work out according to the will of God, so that when I do pray for the Lord's will to be done, I can know because this is a promise right from God that all things work together for the good.
  • Mary on Colossians 1
    Where do i find the verse all thingbwork for the good tothose in Christ Jesus?
  • Lauren - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    Earl, I was very much inspired and rejoiced at your comment in this thread. Praise God for that truth ..... Thank you!

    What an amazing revelation: in Christ, I receive everything from the hand of God.... nothing from the hand of man.... This is freedom.

    The word of God will not return void . If only 1 is persuaded then all is not lost . :)
  • Sacha - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    Hi Bob , have you ever heard the saying "banging your head against a brick wall " I tried for a while but gave up quite quickly , people will believe what they want to believe , there are a few of us on here who know what you are talking about but we learned to keep our mouths shut , after all the majority is usually in the right are they not ?
  • Bob - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    I said THE Son of God , not a son of God .

    If you asked God who is Jesus what would he say ?

    The answer is found in Matthew 17 v 5

    " This is my beloved Son in whom I'm well pleased ; hear him .

    I have yet met a man that even thinks he knows more than God . Case is closed .
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    Brother Bob, my CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Your comment: All that Jesus received was from the Father. That makes him the Son of God.

    MORE TRUTH: Everything You receive is from the Father. That makes you a son of God.

    1 Corinthians 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what has thou that thou didst not receive? and if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hast not received it?

    TRUTH will set you free!
  • All that Jesus received was from his Father . That makes him the Son of God .
    We has christians, who knows the word of god, should continue to trust in the lord in all things, no matter the circumstances in jesus named amen.

    What does the word of our father in heaven say on the topic of homosexuality.

    This question has struck me due to being a student and caught up in the matter of arguments on the topic.

    So please help me out, I'm in desperate need of assistance with this topic!

    Kind Regards,

    I would love going this groups so that I can post these valuable post to help lead so to Christ! I often like and share these post of Christ Jesus when I see them. Be Blessed
  • Tom - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    You have a valid point , if the real Jesus is denied , just who are they believing in ? Will he deliver them ?

    If anyone's Jesus is not the Jesus of the Bible then they might as well be praying to a rock .
  • Tom - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    Yes there was a little town of Bethlehem!

    Jesus is inherently God , and Gods son .

    I hope this helps .

    It's all in the Bible to those that have ears !
  • Ron - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    Hey Tom, I'm not sure of the reward you say for obedience but here's a few of my thoughts and some scripture, in respect to all who have replied.

    1John.2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

    2 Corinthians 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

    1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

    John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

    Jesus called His Father His God. No one can deny the divinity of Jesus, the demons in scripture even knew who he was "the Son of the Most High". The Son was with the Father before the world because through the Son all was created. There is not any scripture that says how the Son began only He was the beginning of creation. The word Godhead is in the Bible 3 times "theots" meaning deity, divinity, "Theion" meaning Devine Being, both can be said of God and the Son of God without saying they are both God.

    God bless us, Ron
  • Tom - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    Jesus did the work the father sent him to do , undeniable, so is there reward for doing good in obedience to the father ? Yes of course . Did he earn it ? Yes of course his reward that is .

    A few verses I read this morning as I opened the bible at random .

    Malachi 2.10 Have we not all one father ? Hath not one God created us ? ....

    Malachi 3 . 6

    For I am the Lord , I change not ; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed .

    These verses certainly apply today , as sure as the Lord is whom he says He is !

    I Bow to the Great I am and his son the Lord Jesus ! His word endures for ever ! Amen ...
  • Jesse - in Reply on Colossians 1:15

    Jesus is quite worthy of praise, honor, and glory. I think we would both agree to that. However, I'm not too sure that Jesus had to earn His position. I don't believe scripture backs up the idea of Christ having to earn anything. How the creator of the entire universe would have to earn His position would be hard for me to grasp.

    Thank you also for sharing your thoughts!
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Colossians 1:15
    Hi Tom,

    Do you mind If I humor you abit?

    Do Christ have an actual birthday?

    I'm sure that sounds silly because the scripture is clear he has no beginning,

    How do you define a father and son relationship "Biologically"?

    No doubt the father existed before his son, there's not way we can comprehend any other way, this is natural!

    Now do we view God the father and Christ the son in the same biological way? NO! and that's unnatural.

    God "IS" Everlasting and Jesus came out of the bosom of Everlasting.

    When you make your argument you make it from an biological/natural point of view when their relationship is not biological or natural.

    When you see father and son you comprehend that from the creatures stand point.

    But when you see Jesus mentions the Father and son he says me and the father are One and if you seen me you seen the father, He says that from the Duel Creator standpoint

    You're trying to grasp that Biologically but you can't because Father AND the Son is Everlasting!

    Apart from what's given from that,

    is what the scripture says directly.

    Isaiah 9:6. The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

    Revelation 1:8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, (the Almighty) "Look up the all mighty in the greek"

    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?

    Malachi 3:1. 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.



  • Carleton on Colossians 1:15
    There were Christian believers from times past that left this confession of faith in 1632.

    "We also believe and confess that before His ascension, He instituted His New Testament, and, since it was to be and remain an eternal Testament, that, He confirmed and sealed the same with His precious blood, and gave and left it to His disciples, yea, charged them so highly with it, that neither angel nor man may alter it, nor add to it, nor take away from it; and that He has caused the same, as containing the whole counsel and will of His heavenly Father, as necessary for salvation, to be proclaimed in His name by His beloved apostles, messengers, and ministers- whom He called, chose, and sent into all the world for that purpose- among all peoples, nations, and tongues, and repentance and remission of sins to be preached and testified of; and that he accordingly has therein declared all men without distinction, who through faith, as obedient children, heed, follow, and practice what the same contains, to be His children, and lawful heirs; this excluding no one from the precious inheritance of eternal salvation, except for the un-believing, and disobedient, the stiff-necked and obdurate, who despise it, and incur this through their own sins, thus making themselves unworthy of eternal life." Jeremiah 31:31 Hebrews 9:15-17 Matthew 26:28 Galatians 1:8 1 Timothy 6:3
