    But those sacrifices could not bring cleansing of the heart & conscience, which only Christ's shed Blood could. They remained in limbo - God accepting their sacrifices, pleased to abide with them, yet looking ahead when His Own Sacrifice would bring full cleansing, new life, & a permanent rest for their souls.

    The Gospel of 'Rest' that was promised to them, was not just of entering Canaan ( Deuteronomy 12:9-11; Joshua 22:43-45), but was spoken of a future Rest ( Hebrews 4:8,9; Isaiah 11:10 (both in the first & second comings of Jesus)). This was always God's Plan, even to include Gentiles in such blessing - and Jesus only could be the Sacrifice that would bring true & lasting rest for all. All the sacrifices pointed to Him & the temporary rest that Israel enjoyed (when they were faithful), could only be fully realized when Christ's Blood also applied to them, yet future. Present-day Israel is in turmoil (spiritually, physically, nationally), having rejected their Messiah. They will never have God's Rest whilst in this state. But when they see their Messiah coming in the clouds, come to Him in brokenness & repentance, having their hearts cleansed by His Blood not by sacrifices, then Hebrews 4:9 will be fully realized, "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God."

    Hi Sariah.

    Just to add to what has already been shared. I there may have been other temples built in diverse locations but what is recognized as the Jewish temple of God had to be built in its appointed location.

    Deuteronomy 12:1-11.

    There was only two.

    God bless.

    Hi David. I'm unsure which era of Israel's existence you're thinking of. If you could provide us a Scripture, or even events surrounding this time of peace, then that would be helpful.

    I know of a future time of world peace, and the one that I thought of when reading your question, is in Deuteronomy 12:1-12 (a promise given of old). Here in verse 10 we read, "But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety." This was at the time when Israel was promised the Land of Canaan, & after their enemies were defeated, they would find rest, peace & safety. Yet, that was short-lived, as Israel disobeyed the Lord & lusted after the wickedness of the nations around them. Their peace was sporadic - Israel has never enjoyed that promised peace. They even rejected their Messiah, ensuring that turmoil, both nationally & spiritually, would always be their lot.
  • Chris - In Reply on Malachi 1 - 1 year ago
    Hello Vicki. Ps. Dollar would have quoted from Malachi 3:8-10. He would probably also have said that this passage pertained to Israel who neglected to perform all that was required of them. In one passage ( Deuteronomy 12:6,11), the LORD instructed Israel that when they got to the Promised Land, that all their sacrifices, offerings, tithes, & vows were to come over as well & nothing to be left behind or undone. But in Malachi, the tithes that were made (the tenth of their farm produce gain) were not being brought forward & kept back by them. These tithes were needed & used by the priests & Levites serving at the Tabernacle for their support.

    This command of tithing wasn't given nor applied to the Church, as the Church (at least in New Testament times), didn't have paid clergy or even a rented building & utilities supplied. Their giving was for the needs of one another & maybe their community ( Acts 2:41-47), thereby fulfilling the Command of Christ to love the LORD thy God and to love your neighbour as yourself. But as the Church grew & spread, the Apostle Paul made the believers aware that some of their Jerusalem brethren weren't doing so well in material things. So Paul sometimes collected stuff to take to them ( 1 Corinthians 16:1-3). So apart from these instances of providing relief to those in need, we don't read that tithing was practised. Rather, that Christians should not give grudgingly but willingly & cheerfully ( 2 Corinthians 9:6-8).

    So, as much as tithing is not prescribed for the Church today, I believe that it should be a proper & sacrificial response to help in the support of a Church ministry, that now has far more expenses than the early Church. And not limited to a tenth on one's earnings, but also to share more if possible for other programs & missionary endeavours of the Church. But we're not limited to giving ten percent nor are we compelled to do so.

    Read to the end; there is forgiveness.

    1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

    Romans 12:1 Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.

    1 Corinthians 3:16 Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst?

    Leviticus 19:28You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord.

    1 Kings 18:28 And they cried aloud and cut themselves after their custom with swords and lances, until the blood gushed out upon them.

    1 Corinthians 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

    Deuteronomy 12:4 "Do not worship the LORD your God in the way these pagan peoples worship their gods."

    Leviticus 20:23 You must not live according to the customs of the nations I am going to drive out before you. Because they did all these things, I abhorred them.

    Proverbs 16:2All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

    1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

    1 Timothy 2:9In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with MODESTY and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array [minidresses, stretchy pants, thick makeup]

    You don't have to get them laser'd off. Just pray and admit you just didn't know. Repent: turn around and walk in His forgiveness and be restored.

    I demand you that anyone should not add any unbiblical or unscriptural word which is Christianity, Theology, Trinity, which are truly not the Word of God according to the scriptures as it is not literally found and written in the King James Version Holy Bible Edition 1611. According to the scriptures of Colossians 2:8 "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."

    Deuteronomy 4:2

    "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you."

    Deuteronomy 12:32

    "What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it."

    Proverbs 30:5

    "Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him."

    Proverbs 30:6

    "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar."

    Isaiah 55:8

    "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD."

    Isaiah 55:9

    "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

    Those, who claim to say that they are a theologian that is called philosophy or groups of philosophers because they practice their own theological or philosophical studies at their college or school or university about the scrolls or manuscripts of Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic languages of the Holy Scriptures Books or King James Version Holy Bible. They claim to be called religious believers as Christians because of Christianity that contradicts God and His infallible and living and written Word that is Hebrews 4:12

    "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

    What is Christianity?

    Question: "What is Christianity and what does God expect from Christians?"

    Bible Answers

    There are two parts to Christianity. The first is the journey to becoming a Christian and the second is living the Christian life.

    False Answers and false theological concepts because there is no such thing about unbiblical or unscriptural word "Christianity" literally found and written in the King James Version Holy Bible Edition 1611.

    Deuteronomy 4:2 (KJV)

    "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you."

    Deuteronomy 12:32 (KJV)

    "What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it."

    Proverbs 30:5-6 (KJV)

    5 "Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him."

    6 "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar."

    Matthew 4:4

    "But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."

    Revelation 22:18-19 (KJV)

    18 "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:"

    19 "And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

    The unscriptural word "Christianity" is not the mouth of God even as it is neither the word of God that is contradicted to the unscriptural word theology that is still not literally found and written in the King James Version Holy Bible Edition 1611 Period

    Hello John,

    I myself have had many beautiful discussions with Mormons & Jehovah Witnesses. I'm sorry if I mix up the teachings. 1st I want to say many of both, are very kind, I liked just about everyone I encountered. With few exceptions. However, many scriptural discussions seemed to point to teaching that was not in-line with JKV HOLY Bible.

    1st important 1= Galatians 1:3-10, 2 Corinthians 11:3-4, teach don't believe another gospel even if an Angel brings, Mormons have a "new" teaching brought from "An Angel".

    2nd Book of Mormon, addition to Bible? Psalms 89:34, Rev. 22:18, Deuteronomy 12:32,

    3rd Mormons teach that Women can't be prophets untrue : Judges 4:4, Luke 2:36, Joel 2:28.

    4th & maybe most important Mormons don't believe CHRIST Jesus is who HE says HE is. : Isaiah 53, Psalms 22, John 19, John 1,

    Why do you ask?

    Baptist are supposed to believe in Scripture.

    I myself like to stick to the WORD of GOD. Those two are not your only choices. The choices really come down to the WORD itself here's some : John 3:15-16, Matthew 25:31-46, James 1:26-27, John 14:16,

    Hopefully this is helpful.
  • T. Levis - In Reply - 2 years ago
    Becki, hi again. I was very surprised when I saw the 1611 King James Version Bible. I read the information about it on this site. Even researching online my results found these "new" "Books" of the HOLY Bible were actually taken out when printed in USA to save costs. Yes it's alarming because we're not suppose to add or take away. Deuteronomy 12:32, Rev. 22:18,19, if you click the 1611 tab it will take you to that translation. I have been studying that version myself recently.
  • Firmvictara69 on 1 Corinthians 14:23 - 2 years ago
    The theological word "Trinity" has nothing to do with 1 Corinthians 14:11

    "Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me." because it is the wrong understanding or misinformation of trinity to be added to the scriptures of 1 Corinthians 14:11

    "Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me."

    King James Version (KJV)

    The main bottom line is that there is no such thing about the unscriptural word of trinity in the King James Version Bible Edition 1611 according to the scriptures as it is written in Proverbs 30:5

    "Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him."

    Proverbs 30:6

    "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar."

    King James Version (KJV)

    Revelation 22:18

    "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:"

    King James Version (KJV)

    Deuteronomy 4:2

    "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you."

    King James Version (KJV)

    Deuteronomy 12:32

    "What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it."

    Precious friend, Michael, Great Question! "Is once saved always saved Biblically correct"?

    1) Since God Said 'Eternal' Life, then God's Eternal Salvation is Biblically Correct; IF man is able to Change it to 'temporary/conditional' life, then it is incorrect

    2) Since Christ's Blood Is ALL-Sufficient, then God's Eternal Salvation is Biblically Correct; IF man 'needs to ADD' Any conditions to "The Already COMPLETE 'Payment'," then it is incorrect

    3) Since God Is 100% Correct, then men's "Changes And Additions" are ZERO percent correct Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32; Revelation 22:18,19

    4) "good works" are Not for life, But are for reward, once we, The Body Of Christ, have "entered into God's Guaranteed 'Eternal' Life" at our Glorification, and "stand At The Judgment Seat Of Christ!" 1 Corinthians 3:6-15 cp "carnal saint" in 1 Corinthians 5:1-5

  • Carleton - 2 years ago
    Christian Greetings!

    For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

    But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

    Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

    Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

    That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

    This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

    Titus 3:1-9

    And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon the twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

    Matthew 19:28

    Ye shall not do after all the things that we do this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes. For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which the LORD your God giveth you.

    Deuteronomy 12:8-9

    While he yet spake, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

    Matthew 17:5

    And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Matthew 28:18-20

    He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    It does NOT say a woman isn't allowed to wear pants. Deuteronomy 22:5, Deuteronomy 12:32

    Remember John 3:16, Matthew 25:31-46,

    it's talking about dressing to resemblance appearance as opposite sex.

    At about 5 or 6 years old, I was told by a neighbor man, I should wear a dress, I wore a dress & the "monster" raped me both ways. I went unconscious more than once & was held by a heavenly being after I asked to die. The heavenly being comforted me he was wearing a white robe. I had a conversation as an adult outside of my young self, I guess in the heaven. Then I was back.

    Later I was in a church Sunday school that I was made to wear a dress, (by step mother) the boys would lay on the floor to see my undergarments. It was emotionally painful & I would cry not to wear a dress. Even as a young adult men have been dishonorable when I wear shirts or dresses. I could use it for my gain!! However I rarely wear s dress & when I do, heads turn. I find it much more modest to wear pants. The husbands at the churches, stores etc don't stare as much when I wear pants.

    Pants aren't what disqualify someone from heaven.
  • GRACE_ambassador {ChrisE} - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    Precious friend, Naresh. You do realize reading and studying are two different things? I would suggest "reading" to be 3-5 (or more, IF you wish...) chapters a day and that will take about a year to "read" the Whole Bible (KJV). This is good so that you can "...live By EVERY Word That Proceedeth Out Of The Mouth Of God." ( Deuteronomy 8:3) ( Matthew 4:4) ( Luke 4:4)

    For life-long "studying" I recommend starting With: "What God Is Doing Today, Under GRACE, And Specifically WHO HE IS, And HIS Salvation For us," found in Romans Through Philemon, KJV, prayerfully And Carefully, and study According To The Following Bible "study" Rules: ( 1 Corinthians 14:40) ( 2 Timothy 2:15) ( Deuteronomy 4:2) ( Deuteronomy 12:32) ( Proverbs 30:5-6) ( Revelation 22:18-19 KJB!) ( Acts 17:11) ( Isaiah 28:10) ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17) ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17) ( 1 Corinthians 2:13)

    The Best "Interpretive" Commentary On The Bible Is The BIBLE Itself!:

    NEVER ever interpret The Many Plain Scriptures by the "few" difficult verses, But, ALWAYS Always Interpret the few Obscure/Difficult/Dubious verses By ALL Of The MANY Plain and Clear Passages Of God's Pure And Holy Word!


    "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do ALL to The Glory Of God!" ( 1 Corinthians 10:31)

    Naresh, hope this helps on your reading/studying journey, and saves you from a lot of Confusion of the enemy...

  • Names of God Meaning - In Reply on Deuteronomy 12:18 - 3 years ago
    This term, "God Almighty" in verse one is the English translation of the term El Shaddai.Wherever we find the term "God Almighty," it is speaking of the revelation of God using the Hebrew name El Shaddai.

    Who is El Shaddai? My favorite definition and the one we will useEl Shaddai is the God of "more than enough." "Enough" is that which is required to meet our needs. "More than enough" is having extra left over to meet the needs of others. The revelation of El Shaddai brought with it a pronouncement of fruitfulness and prosperity. You are blessed to be a blessing!

    If you live in the United States, I have found many nice King James Bibles at the Goodwill Stores. Many are under 5 Dollars. Try Salvation Army too.

    If you are outside of the United States, you can call 1-800-700-7000 and probably get one. If you need one in your language, see if they have those.

    Some people give money to those ministries, so all people in need can get a Bible. What a great way to love your neighbor.

    I understand that God's Name, El Shaddai, would reflect this. That Name essentially means, 'The Almighty One' or 'The Overpowerer'. In His greatness, El Shaddai also reflects God as the All-Sufficient One (the God Who is Enough), enough to sustain & provide for every need of His Universe, including mankind & more so, to His children.

  • Ed Hand on Genesis 2:7 - 3 years ago
    The breath of life, from God into Adam ( Gen 2:7), became Adam's own spirit.

    The Hebrew word "naphach", which is translated as "breathed", can mean breathed or to blow into, or to inflate. The Hebrew word "neshamah", which is translated as "breath", refers to vital breath of inspiration, and is also translated as "spirit" in other Old Testament verses such as in Proverbs 20:27, which states "The spirit ("neshamah") of a man is the candle of the Lord". From the meanings of these Hebrew words, the phrase "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life", from Genesis 2:7 can be restated as "blew into his nostrils the spirit of life". We know Adam's spirit - the breath from God, is what gave him life. Another words, Adam's spirit entering his body from God's breath (or "spirit"), started his heart to beat, and then, Adam's spirit flowed into his bloodstream, causing Adam to become a living soul ( Gen. 2:7). As you can tell from my explanation, God breathed Adam's spirit into him, and, as a result, Adam's soul was created. Some feel that this verse merely says that Adam came to life, but let's take a closer look. How do I know his spirit entered his bloodstream? That word "soul" is translated from the Hebrew word "Nephesh". There is another reference in the Bible, at Leviticus 17:11, which states: For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Another reference is at Deuteronomy 12:23, which also indicates that "the blood is the life". However, in both of these verses, it is also the word "Nephesh", which is, in fact, translated "life", instead of "soul", as it's translated in Genesis 2:7. In Deuteronomy 12:23, God is telling Moses not to allow the people to eat the blood of animals, because "the blood is the soul". Leviticus 17:11 declares that "the soul of the flesh is in the blood".
