  • Kay reeves on 1 John 4
    Jesus is the only one that will be sitting at the right hand of the Father.He is speaking to those who hold that men cannot live victorious over the world, flesh,and the devil.Ref. James 4:4 is speaking of some of this.He definitely wasn't speaking of Himself.As you live so are you in this world.You need to study the chpt. 4:11-17

  • Vance Jones on James 4:15
    Very good advice for Christians. When we ask the Lord to protect us during the course of the day, it's in keeping with the advice provided in James 4:15. Our perspectives are limited whereas God's is not. We must always acknowledge our need for divine guidance and protection in this very dangerous world.
  • Aliwa MERCY on Revelation 1
    indifferent is a sin , james 4:17
  • Kirk urban on Psalms 1
    One of mans main positions that puts us in the way of sin, is when we choose to stand in the way of sinners.A sinner is a person who knows right, but chooses to do wrong. James 4:17 These scriptures are literally teaching us we must be seperated from this group of people. Stay away from those who live in sin.
  • Bill on James 4:7
    "Recognize distortion and excessiveness as signs of satanic attack and based on your position in Christ far above the powers of darkness, Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you James 4:7
  • RNM ROM CHP 7-----6 on Romans 7
    James 4:7-Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Sometime temptations can be a strong negative force raging within you, but if you endure it and resist, it becomes easier and easier, it 's like exercising a muscle it gets stronger and stronger this is the process of sanctification at least one part of it. Gods expectations of us is really no different than that of a human parent, and that is to be obedient and follow his simple rules, and there you half to study His word to learn them. PRAISE GOD HIS SON AND HOLY SPIRIT. AMEN!!
  • Shemdoe,Stanley on Matthew 6:33
    God created us for his own purpose and we are not the one to decide on how to live, to act and behave.So seeking first the kingdom of God is drawing our selves closer to God James 4:8 and he will be closer to us,then we shall know his will and act accordingly.This is the basic issue in christian life.Other things we need will be granted to us as additions. Don 't seek for addition,seek for a basic thing.
  • Clinton on James 5:14
    God word is plain and simple to understand.He do not speak in riddles,He speaks so you will understand, yet there are those that try to add to His word or change it to their way of thinking.Where is your faith ? Either believe God or make Him a lie , God is not a man that He should lie Numbers 23 19 Read James 4 8 AMEN and Amen
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Matthew 18
    Hello Mvuyelwa Tshisa Proverbs 15 3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good . This is an individual walk as well. God hears everything and see everything. He is Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent. When you pray and ask God he hears you. However, he may not always answer because you can pray in amiss, James 4 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. When you do not know what to pray for, you can always say the pray that Jesus told us to pray, Luke 11 2. Under this grace age, people should be praying to the Lord to save them and they should follow Acts 2 38. This is the promise.
  • Elder Doris Harrell on James 4:15
    Oh, look at how gracious the LORD is to give us an escape from making rash promises and remarks with our mouths. Our intent may be honorable but truly we don 't know what we will be doing on tomorrow. This is all in his hands. When we say what James 4 15 is saying we are truly speaking the truth!!! I can 't tell you how many times I have regretted saying what I will do or where I will go and wishing later that I had never made those promises. He has, indeed, in James 4 15 given us a way of escape from the temptation of making rash promises with our mouths. And I just want to say thank you LORD.
  • Matthew (same name as the bible) on Matthew 4
    Jesus definitely put on the full armor of God Ephesians 6 11. He put God first as fasting which is just amazing. David also fasted Psalms 16 8. And when I read this also James 4 7 The devil doesn 't tempt me no more.
  • Paul is speaking to a rebelious people about the reality of warfare. When we believe in Jesus with all our hearts we must also believe His word which in John 16 33 says that in this world we will have tribulation but be of good cheer I have overcome the world. Wow! Jesus assures us that we need not fear about the logistics of how we will overcome our adversity but that through Him we have blessed assurance that victory is ours. 3 things pray seek God 1st the bible says in james 4 7 Submit yourself to God resist the devil and He shall flee. 2nd Allow the Word of God to work in You like never before surround yourself with psalms when you feel defeated ignore that and resite I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. 3rd have faith! It is impossible to please God without faith. Face your enemy head on and know that Through Jesus we wear the victors crown! Be blessed.
  • Ronald l. collins on Philippians 1:15
    it has been said there s no place to hid except behind a bloody cross the one that our precious Lord died on its been a long time since I ve heard the expression the sacred desk the pulpit a place where God s word is preached by the pastor are spoken by a bible teacher Deacon are elder the word of God can be used to build up are for correction but the motive for our service in this life is every thing those who use God s word in the wrong manner will have no reward at the be ma seat where Christ will judge our service as Christians the Apostle Paul was hated and there preaching was done to bring harm to him but God word does not return void the envy strife and contention was a form of evil but there was those who preached in good will faithful to God s word and there calling envy is a sin that Solomon said is as cruel as hell King Saul eyed David after his victory over Goliath and Pontius Pilate said of Jesus they have delivered him up for envy as true Christians we must guard against this form of worldliness James 4 5 11 if we get in the flesh the Holy Spirit will convict our hearts the seat of our affections 1John was written to Christians and it says 1john ch 1 8 10 I m thankful for this truth God Bless

  • Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you, James 4:7.
  • Jay on Luke 17
    The kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom ( Romans 17:14) and comes not by observation (verse 20).
    a. The kingdom of God comes by believing and receiving ( Romans 10:10) Jesus Christ into your heart (soul) as your personal savior;
    b. Anyone who has never humbled themselves ( James 4:6) and invited Jesus Christ into their heart (soul) being born again not by corruptible seed becomes the exception regardless what some people believe.
  • Jay on Luke 10
    @ fiona's comment on luke 10- WOW! i do not know where to begin with you. i surely do not know what bible you are reading. i am guessing from your statement that you are involved with a charismatic women liberation movement that does not teach and preach the bible. you have missed the character of jesus, paul, and john the baptist to begin with, and i do not believe that you allow the holy spirit to guide you to any truth. if you believe that paul and john the baptist are women haters (misogynist) than you have completely misunderstood the pauline epistles written by the holy spirit. jehovah god does not believe in women liberation and if you do not understand and agree with that, then you are not going to have much success in comprehending gods holy word and becoming in a close relationship with him. paul and john the baptist were both hand picked by god to represent his son jesus christ. i believe you need to humble yourself( james 4:6) and get on your knees and ask for forgiveness. you do not represent the spirit of jesus ( revelation 19:10).
  • Jay on Luke 4
    @Susan,
    On Satan;
    1. I do not believe a born again Christian can be possessed by the devil or a devil the scriptures do not support that;
    2. The devil very rarely messes with anyone unless they are chosen of God for a high spiritual position;
    3. The devil or his principalities can have an influence on a Christian from very little to much depend on their closeness to Christ;
    4. This is why we as Christians need to be doing those things which God has commanded us to do;
    5. Read the King James Bible Authorized Version, belong and participate in a solid bible church, be in prayer, separate yourself from the people, things, and anything that keeps us from putting God first in our lives ( 1 Corinthians 6:14-18; Isaiah 59:1,2);
    6. Place ourselves under the blood of Jesus Christ;
    7. Read James 4:3-8 submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you (verse 7). We submit ourselves unto God by doing those things which he has commanded us to do and those things that please him according to his holy word. Do not fret about where the devils go, that is Godís business.
  • Jay on Mark 11
    On verse 24, as a reminder that much of what is being read in the gospels before the cross is prophetic doctrine for the Jews to happen after the rapture of the body of Christ (the church). All can be used for spiritual application in this age of grace (church age). We must compare scripture with scripture to achieve absolute truth ( John 5:39; I Corinthians 2:13). In verse 23 the mountain represents spiritual obstacle that will come your way to try and interfere with getting you off the course that the lord has placed you on. But with the faith of ( Ephesians 3) and allowing Jesus to work through us by humbling ourselves before him and following the rule in James 4:1-3 and Isaiah 40:31, we will overcome any obstacles. And prayers will be answered according to needs and God's plan for our lives. Do not pray for a Rolls Royce when a Chevy will do!
  • Biodun Williams on Proverbs 4
    God's wisdom has Fatherly instructions, corrections, admonitions, information and guidance in them. As a matter of divine fact, His Wisdom originates from a heart of love, mercy, and compassion that are beyond human comprehension. Therefore, they are meant to stir you and I, as it were, into the favours and strength of God. And because God is God, and there is none compared to Him, it means that He can't lie. Hence, it is worthwhile and wise to give concentrated attention to His Word. God's Word is His Wisdom and His wisdom are His dictates, and they are meant for the good of whoever believes ( 2 Corinthians 12:9; Hebrews 4:16). Truthfully speaking, the fact that God does not do evil, but that He only does what is good and right, should encourage whoever cares to listen, to plunge into His truths, and also into His wisdom- and that must be through Jesus Christ, and also through the Holy Spirit, the Eternal Spirit ( 1 Corinthians 5:10; 2 Corinthians 3:5). The nuggets of truths, in this Proverbs 4, like others, are godlike precepts and instructions that are incomparable, good and right for the human soul, and for the spirit man, the hidden man of the heart, - and that mainly refers to the recreated human spirit. They are facets of biblical truths that are encouraging and also excellent for the godly type of life that many are craving and thirsting for ( Psalms 1:1-3, Psalms 37:4; Ephesians 1:17). Interestingly, depending perhaps on what background, a Christian comes from, the fact is that for the really genuine and committed type of Christian, a time will or must come that he will come into the knowledge that this God of Israel, the Father of our LORD Jesus Christ deserves to be magnified, glorified and worshipped; for there is none like Him ( John 4:23; 1 Peter 1:25). Thus, the place of wisdom, in the lives of whoever desires and dares to love and honour the Living God ( John 1:12; 3:16). He is, all that matters- and when you and I key into His love and faithfulness, He will do great wonders through us to the glory of His name. In view of these and many other things vis a vis the Word of God, wisdom dictates that we give ourselves committedly unto the LORD, and to His Word ( Matthew 6:33,34). There are challenges upon challenges that confront us, as individuals, and that is why, these truths and instructions, as contained in Proverbs, and throughout the pages of the Holy Writ, demand that we be faithfully committed to them. Remember, we have been accepted, into the family of the Beloved, and that refers to Jesus Christ ( John 17:3; Romans 8: 15; Ephesians 2:18; Galatians 4:16,1; Hebrews 9:14; 1 John 4:3; 5:13). And that is where the grace of God comes on board; His grace is more than sufficient ( 1 Corinthians 15:10; 2 Corinthians 3:5; 2 Corinthians 12:9). God has abilities no matter what task or assignment He has called you and I for. When you commit yourself to God's dictates and function in line with them, Angels will go on assignment for you ( John 15:7; James 4:16.). There are levels and degrees of encounters with God, that we can't get into except through daily obedience and practical submission to the Word of God. In fact there is nothing, as far as I know that can surpass what God has given. He has given Jesus Christ, who is referred to biblically, as the Wisdom of God, - and that is for the salvation and redemption of humanity. And when you belong to Him through the agency of the new birth, you automatically become joint heirs with Him. And with that you are sorted if you know how to walk or function in love, and then take advantage of what He has given through Christ Jesus, the Saviour of the World. The essence of these is that we should give attention to wisdom, embrace it, reflect upon it, and practice it. God's instructions and precepts demands heartfelt obedience ( Psalm 119:6; John 14:15; John 15:120; 1 Corinthians 7:19; 1 Peter 1:25; 1 John 5:3). It says whatever you do in word and deed, do it heartily as unto the LORD. Hence, in the things of the Spirit, and that refers to the Holy Spirit, high level of commitment should be the norm, and that is because God cannot lie, - and His Word is forever infallible ( John 1:1-14; Hebrews 4). Truly, God is forever trustworthy.
  • Cedrick on Hebrews 11:6
    This simply means by believing you own and you receive on a day and time known by God. Remember your plans are not God's plans with you, you should not ask anything to please you, but God ( James 4:3). Your child believes that he/she will receive if he/she asks parents. God is your parent. BELIEVE, OWN AND RECEIVE. God bless you.
  • Cheryl on Psalms 83:18
    Can you imagine having a very close friend for years and not know their name. The scriptures urge us ( James 4:8) Draw close to God and he will draw close to you. He even assures his worshipers:"I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, the one saying to you, 'Do not be afraid. I myself will help you."-- Isaiah 41:13. Scriptures say there are many "gods" and many lords", there is actually to us one God the Father out of whom all things are and we for him, and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are, and we through him. At 2 Corinthians 4:4 it says the god of this world blinds the minds of the unbelievers that they might not see the good news of God and the Christ who is the image of God, might not shine through. So the god blinding the minds is who 'Satan', he is also mentioned at 1 John 5:19, which says "We know we originate with God , but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one" so when you pray to God the Almighty, use his name Jehovah and you will be noticed by him and you too can draw close to the only true God, and gain everlasting life which only he can give you. " John 3:16".
