    Irene, WE are not supposed to pray to anyone or to anything except ""GOD through "JESUS CHRIST" our intercesor . The only way to salvation is through the blood of JESUS. John 16:24-26, Hebrews 8:25.

    Verse 17~The wisdom of this law was shown years later when King Solomon's many wives turned his heart away from Jehovah God.

    Verse 16~The people were not to rely on material things or on other nations, but they were to put their complete trust in Jehovah God.

    The Passover and the feast of Unleavened Bread was instituted by Moses for the children of Israel, to forever memorialize the LORD delivering them from the bondage of slavery in Egypt. It is significantly representative of Christ's sacrifice on Calvary to save the whole of humanity form its sins, thereby reconciling and redeeming us to God. St. Patrick's Day and Passover are not the same thing.

    Eric; Patrick was the Apostle of Ireland: born at Kilpatrick, near Dumbarton, in Scotland, in the year 387; died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland, 17 March, 493. His parents Calphurnius and Conchessa, belonged to a Roman family of high rank, and held the office of decurio (members of the colonial council) in Gaul or Britain. He was the one to first bring the Glad Tidings to what is now Ireland.

    I know it is said by man and believed to be true that we no longer need abide by mosaic laws. But I urge you folks to honor the Passover and I urge you to honor it this month from the 14th-20th. The 17th being The Feast of Unleavened Bread. Maybe I'm mistaken but I think most people call it St Patrick's Day. Biblical scholars help me out here. We may want to re-check our calendars on this one. 27

    God is our creator, He knows and controls all things. We should pray to God thru Jesus who is our intercessor. Prayer to others are useless as they have only power given by God who has all power.

    Verse 1: Jehovah God deserves the best sacrifices and offerings that we can give. He has given us the best and we should be moved to give him our best.

    THE WRATH OF GOD:---now Justified by His Blood We shall be Saved from Wrath Through Him. Romans5:9 / For God hath not appointed us to Wrath but to obtain Salvation by Our Lord Jesus Christ:1Thessalonians 5:9. The Wrath of God is poured out on the unbelieving. If We are here, The Wrath will have no effect on Us. We are covered by The Blood. When He sees The Blood He will pass over You.

    Irene:---that we must through much "Tribulation" enter into The Kingdom of God:Acts 14:22 / Yet Hath he not root himself,but dureth for a while: for when "Tribulation"or "Persecution" arises because of The Word he is offended.Matthew 13:21 / Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ? "Tribulation",distress,Persecution---Romans8:35./Tribulation,Persecution comes to All those Washed in The Blood

    " ..... we are not to worship saints or holy men, but we can still PRAY to them ..... "; ??? Hosea; God is speaking to the Israelites priests for withholding His truth from His people. We, in this age of Grace, are His people. To paraphrase - God's eyes run to and fro in the earth, beholding the evil and the good.

    If you pray to saints what do you want the dead to do with the prayer? That means you are worshiping them. Pray to the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob and pray in or through Jesus Christ that is what God permit

    God says ahe,s the only one whom we need to woship and not anything else, but what we need to forget that we need to pay atension to what we are seeing and taking up most of our times with, when we could be reading our bible and studying gething to know Jesus more. that thing can also come to be our idol worshiping, God help us I pray that we may take the time to learn more of you each day.

    Deuteronomy 17:17 The King was not to multiply wives, less he would fail to keep the law. He was not to multiply silver or gold. These are all examples for us today for government officials to follow, so that they rule with integrity. Christianity teaches one man, for one woman, and if this is not done then the land will be caused to sin. We need to pray for leaders with integrity who will pattern themselves after the laws of God. Then the blessings of God will come upon our country.

    Hi Rhita,

    Good point! You are right, we are not to worship Saints or Holy men. However, we can still pray to them, and learn of them. Jesus is the son of God, and God is our one and only Lord. Only God should we worship.
  • Rhita for verse 3
    This verse tell us not to worship all creatures even heavenly. What about the saints and all the people proclaimed to be holy by man. Man should only worship God through Jesus Christ.
