    Sister Dianne, God is SOVEREIGN. His will IS BEING DONE on earth as in heaven.

    Jesus, Satan and all of God's Creation are ROBOTS. Everyone is fulfilling the WORDS THAT WERE SPOKEN BEFORE the foundations of the world.

    God knows the end of all thing from the beginning of all things because he SPOKEN THEM INTO BEING.

    Satan didn't have FREE WILL and REBEL against God, He is FULFILLING God words.

    If GOD isn't doing everything through those he made, then he is not SOVEREIGN and is not GOD.

  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 30
    Hi Neumon. I believe you're referring to Isaiah 45:7 and Amos 3:6. Please correct me if you're thinking of other similar verses.

    If we read those passages as given & understood, then we're liable to believe that the "evil" being spoken of in both verses is a moral or sadistic evil constructed by God. However, we must turn to the Hebrew to interpret that word. In both cases, the word for "evil" is from the same root word: Rah; and in both instances 'evil' is meant to imply 'calamity or adversity'.

    So reading Isaiah 45:7: God both forms the light & creates darkness; if God chooses to remove the light, whether a physical light from the sun, we will have darkness. Or, He chooses to not give or prevent spiritual light coming to someone, then that mind lies in darkness (e.g. Ephesians 5:8, 1 Thessalonians 5:5).

    Similarly, with "I make peace & create evil": God can choose to bring peace into a situation or within a person, or He can withhold that peace, & calamity or adversity prevails. So, when it says that God creates 'evil', it's impossible for an Holy God to bring out some evil from within Himself, when no such evil can even exist in such holiness. But God can remove light & peace for His Own purposes, thereby leaving distress & calamity.

    Amos 3:6: in like manner, when a trumpet (of warning) is sounded, the people ought to be alerted & afraid of what's to come. If there is a calamity being struck in a city, shouldn't the inhabitants likewise be warned that maybe the Lord is trying to tell them something? Sometimes, not always, when we face an adversity or calamity in our lives, we need to seek the Lord's Face & examine our lives, lest there may be a word of warning from God for us. The Lord told Israel (through Amos) in verse 2: "You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities." Israel was greatly blessed, but they likewise also faced much warning & punishment for their sins & departure from God.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Exodus 26
    Good day brother John,

    I enjoyed reading your reply and if I can't fit everything in this post I will make another to go along with it.

    I'll start with this "Is it not GOD Who comes down, to open the Seals, as HE alone can do that, to call out HIS children for 1Thes.4:15-16?

    How does GOD communicate with HIS children?

    Deut.18:18; Amos 3:7 explain that, prophets, through whom HE, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, communicates.

    As we're told that Christ, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Lamb of God, is the only one worthy to take, from God, and open, or even look upon, the book with the seven seals.

    I believe I understand your perception of how God communicates with His children. Through the Spirit of His Son, or the Holy Ghost, with whom we have been blessed to receive when we gave our lives to the Lord. Him knowing our hearts and who is ready to receive the Spirit of Christ. Receiving the Spirit of Truth that shall help guide, and teach, us in all things to live for the will of our Father. If you meant anything else please correct me.

    Before I get to the angel in Revelation 10 I would like to post something I perceive. As I have spent some time reading through the Scriptures, and others with views to this, I would like to bring up the Angel of the LORD in the OT. He is first spoken of in Genesis 16:7-13. As He is the one who stopped Abraham from slaying Isaac. Also as He is stated to be the one in the burning bush who spoke to Moses. As most of these accounts with Him also indicate Him as the LORD our God.

    An account of an Angel that God warns them to obey because "my name is in Him". Exodus 23:21. My perception is that this may be(I say may as only God knows the Truth of this and is only my perception) the pre incarnate Jesus Christ.

    Sorry about that, I just thought I'd put that in here. So back to the angel in Revelation 10.

    Will continue in next post:
  • John R Nolan - in Reply on Exodus 26
    God bless you Richard.

    Thanks for your response, and, yes, all answers must come from GOD.

    We need assure we are not personally interpreting HIS Word, adding to, taking from or leveraging IT to fit any denominational teachings. Rev.22:18-19

    Is it not GOD Who comes down, to open the Seals, as HE alone can do that, to call out HIS children for 1Thes.4:15-16?

    How does GOD communicate with HIS children?

    Deut.18:18; Amos 3:7 explain that, prophets, through whom HE, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, communicates.

    There is only ONE GOD, and HE must stick with HIS WORD!

    GOD included the seals, in our Bible, but they are still in mystery form, so HE, GOD comes down, again, Rev.10:1-7, to speak through a Biblically vindicated prophet, revealing what the meaning of the Seals is, getting HIS children ready for the rapture.

    'Strait is the gate and narrow is the Way and few there be that enter therein'; and few will accept what GOD has done, is doing, here, today, repeating that horrific mistake Israel made, in their past, with the Gentiles fulfilling Heb. 6:6.

    GOD is bound, by HIS WORD, to reveal all mysteries.

    Israel again became a nation, in 1948, and are now looking for their Messiah, thus time must be exceedingly short.

    Who comes down, in Rev.10:1-7, with a covenant rainbow on HIS head?

    Scripture explains that, once that takes place, 'time shall be no more, (no more delay)' Rev.10:6

    Jesus, our prophet Son of God, comes down in Rev.19, with the saints, not for them, which implies there is much misunderstanding about the Second coming, and those who are seeking HIM need turn to HIM, not dogma and interpretation of man, to comprehend what is taking place, for HIS children, today.

    Praise our LORD GOD!

    Might be a bit of a challenge, Richard, and may our LORD bless you as you research what is said thus.

    bro. John
  • Chris - in Reply on John 3:13
    I'm sorry Sacha: and why is this Scripture given to me? If you are thinking that the Scripture is intended to show that God will do nothing about those who have rejected Him & therefore just leave them in the grave, then I don't believe that this indicates this at all. But then again, I might be mistaken by your intentions, so I apologize for writing my next paragraph (which may not be what you're wanting).

    So here goes: Amos 3:7 read in context from the beginning of the chapter, tells us about Amos' rebuke against Israel: just as a lion doesn't roar when hunting for its prey; as a lion cub won't cry out if it is satisfied with food; as a bird can't be snared if there is no trap; as a (warning) trumpet will not sound if there is no danger to the people - so too with God - He will remain quiet ("He will do nothing") to His people, but will reveal His secrets (or, His intentions) to His prophets. So the message here is that when the prophet (of God) is commanded to speak by God, the people better sit up & listen hard, as the judgement of God is about to fall upon them.

    If this is not what you are anticipating, then please write further. Thank you.

    Daniel, may the spirit grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    You are leaving out the perimeters set fourth in the first three verses in Revelation 1-3

    .....which shortly come to pass.....

    ....signified....

    .....the time is at hand....

    Revelation 22:10 And he said unto me, SEAL NOT the sayings of the prophecy of this book: FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND.

    The truths in this book had the same meaning 1900 years ago to those readers as it does to readers today and will have the same meaning to readers in the future.

    Daniels words were sealed until the day of the Lord (first time, Christ in the flesh; second time CHRIST IN YOU in a glorified body; to those who look for him, as the Holy Spirit). The Lamb of God who only is worthy to open the seals and declare the MYSTERY of his WORKS which is CHRIST IN YOU. TRUTH, RESURRECTION, and IMMORTALITY.

    Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his SECRETS UNTO HIS SERVANTS THE PROPHETS.

    The answers to Revelation are hidden in the words of the prophets.

    Revelation 22:19 Is a warning: are your answer coming from the prophets or a secular mind.
  • Christopher on 2 Corinthians 11:4
    There is another christ, another spirit, and another gospel that has been preached, and that gospel has in so many ways overtaken the true message and meaning of the message preached not only by Christ but His disciples. That message is Universalism. Amos 3:2 states "You only of ALL the families of the earth have I known"... And Christ Himself stated that He came not but for the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel. There is no conversion of other races to this message, though preachers preach to save every dog, cat, bat, and rat, that comes across their path. The Scripture is the most Exclusive Message ever given, and in a Political correct, though untrue society, that message would be detestable. Even the children of Satan (biological) today are received as the children of God (biological). There is a great void in understanding and an intentional effort to lose the proper meanings in mistranslation.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Galatians 3
    Donna Vargas,

    "we are without a preacher right now and they are cinsidering an interm"

    The "we" and "they" have to talk things through. Never forget Christ himself is the spiritual head of any church, and he dwells in the heart and head of every believer. Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

  • Advise to Single Christian MinistersMishael - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Being Alone and Isolated

    Satans best tool against anybody, saved or unsaved, is ISOLATION. You are vulnerable because of it.

    The Humility of Jesus is shown in how he cared for people who came to Him for help. It was spiritual and practical.

    There are many, many ministries who could use an extra pair of hands, and a friendly smile.

    You aren't going to have a husband ring the doorbell. You need to make some calls; call your church for advise. Be VISABLE. Try to break out of solitude, doing one of these following ministries:

    Feeding ministries (packing or distributing

    Benevolence (Clothing,toys,shoes)

    Collecting coats for Kids

    Helping with blue or brown Santa

    Writing out Holiday greeting cards for shut-in's or elderly

    Your local civic organizations (paint scenery for Christmas plays, find costumes, etc

    Help Habitat for Humanity

    A Christian man may be out in the midst of all that: being his kind and caring self. As long as you're isolated you will not be in range of meeting. (Mission accomplished by Satans crummy helpers.) Conversation in public only.

    If your church doesn't do these kind of things; find a church with a big singles ministry. No rule says you can't visit other singles ministries and attend your regular church.

    John 10:10

    "The thief (satan) cometh not, but for to steal (your joy and peace), and to kill (your faith that God loves you), and to destroy (you! Piece by piece). I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (Jesus)."

    You have to fight back like a warrior, Ephesians 6.

    Amos 3:3

    Can two walk together, except they be agreed? {Pray to receive a life partner, or spouse.}. This doesn't work unless you feed your faith. Have an inner attitude of praise and worship towards God. Participate in life outside of your house.

    Refuse violently when demons of doubt come to shred your faith. Eph.6

    You need to print this out or copy. Tape it to the back of your closet door.

  • Let us share info and study it in Scripture on Matthew 5:1
    Why don't we take a break, studying and expound on the BOOK OF JOEL ?8

    It's one you have to read slow with the Commentary. Bible verses related to Dreams And Visions:

    .......................................................



    Joel 2:28 - And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

    Acts 2:17 - And it shall come to pass IN THE LAST DAYS, SAITH GOD, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

    ..........................................................

    Numbers 12:6 - And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

    Proverbs 29:18 - Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

    Daniel 1:17 - As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

    Amos 3:7 - Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his SECRET unto his SERVANTS the prophets.

    1 John 4:1 - Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    ...........................................

    >> Top 2 verses say almost the same thing except in Acts it says Thus saith GOD. So if a prophet speaks Thus Saith The Lord; that had better of been from God and not the pizza you ate at 3am. God speaks to us by the Holy Spirit (which is the Spirit of Jesus).

    He speaks and then we repeat; word for word. Write it down and date it.

    I've found that the Book of Daniel goes forward and skips backward again. We have to hear the Holy Spirit teach that Book.

  • Andy G van den Berg on Mark 2
    On MARK 2:21

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    God is the judge over His Church and teaches us that you must be 'Born Again'. No believer and follower of the true Christ has ever made a claim that they are 'Born Again'. That is judging oneself and falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; Rev. 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Rev. 12:9), and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Rev. 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    On 2 THESS. 2:3

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Rev. 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom (2 Cor. 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9) and overcome this world (1 John 5:4).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1). It should be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    Your comments are a compilation of vain religious doctrines and commandments (Matthew 15:9; Isa. 29:13; Col 2:18; 1 Timothy 1:6,7; Titus 1:14) that are not able to provide salvation to mankind.

    Regardless of the thin air in Nova Scotia as described by Fred Scanlan, please do know that our website and Ministry in Christ moves very well with the Holy Spirit and was visited last year by people from over 160 countries. There are 193 countries in the world, while the Vatican and Palestine are observer States. Also, we much prefer to breath the cleaner air in Nova Scotia rather than the air out West.

    Please remember: You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1).

    You are currently travelling on a 'wide' road and be reminded that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:13,14). The emphasis is on the word 'few'.

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7). Don't let your self-righteousness stand in the way of your salvation (Romans 10:3,4).

    To ADAM

    We wrote earlier:

    He (Christ) also informed them that they were not of God (John 8:43-47). Remember now that they truly thought that they knew God and that they worshipped him in truth, but when He dwelt amongst them they crucified Him, as they could not believe His message of repentance (1 Corinthians 2:14) and did not like it that He convinced them that they were sinners and that they lived under the power of sin (Satan).

    The messages we communicate, which are according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17), judges you and other people on this website in the same way.

    Christ came into this world for three reasons (John 16:8-11).

    To reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

    - Of sin, because they believe not on me;

    - Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

    - Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

    The gospel, which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ (Gal. 1:11,12).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Rev. 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9) and that you follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9).

    On MATTHEW 18:3

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    God is the judge over His Church and teaches us that you must be 'Born Again'. No believer and follower of the true Christ has ever made a claim that they are 'Born Again'. That is judging oneself and falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; Rev. 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    Regarding your views on Water Baptism it cannot save a person. Please read Hebrews 6:1,2. It was one of the rites of of the Jewish Religion (Numbers 19:7, Hebrews 9:10). Like circumcision, it was strictly an act of faith, and as Peter explains it is an a pledge of good conscience towards God.
