    In response to 1 Peter 4:18; If you refer to the original Greek interpretation of the word "saved" it means "delivered". There are "few" of God's elect that will be delivered from their ignorance of God's righteousness by the Holy Spirit within them revealing the correct understanding of God's righteousness by his Son's death on the cross imputing his righteousness unto them.

    Most of God's elect have "a zeal" of God, but not according to knowledge, for they being ignorant of God's righteousness, are going about to establish their own righteousness, having not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

    Matt 7:13-14, Gives us the division of the few that have been revealed the knowledge of God's righteousness who enter into the straight gate and the narrow way that leads them to enjoy an abundant life as they sojourn here on earth. Those that enter the wide gate and the broad way are the vast majority of God's elect who are teaching and preaching eternal deliverance by their good works, which leads to destruction. All of God's elect have had their sins paid for by Jesus on the cross and will all enjoy eternal deliverance into heaven, without the lose of even one.

    I believe the scriptures teach that there will be more to enter heaven, than hell, as many as the stars in heaven and the sand in the seashore, too numerous to count.

    Jeremiah 21:8, I do not believe that this passage is referring to "life in heaven", and "death in hell". "Death" according to Greek translation means "separation". God is telling his elect to choose that abundant life that we can enjoy by entering into the strait gate referred to in Matt 7. The "death" would be a separation from enjoying that good and abundant life.

    God granted mankind the ability to choose out the way he wants to live his life here on earth, and mankind choose not to seek God.Psalms 53:2-3. God, by his foreknowledge of this, choose an elect people from within those that did not seek him.

    Don't believe in man's words.the popular preaching today leads us to believe that if we just believe in Jesus we will be saved. This is a very popular worldly view today, and conjured up to make people think we are saved and can not fail to achieve heaven. It is a false sense of security, and a false teaching! It is contrary to what our bible scripture instructs us. Ask yourself: Do you really want to follow the popular worldly view?

    Read and believe in your bible scripture

    Jeremiah 21:8

    "And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death."

    God said:" I set before you a way of life, and a way of death!" Even though God and his Son Jesus Christ gave us a path to life.Not everyone will find their way..many more people will find Death!

    1 Peter 4:18

    "And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"

    If the righteous "SCARCELY" be saved..doesn't sound like many people will get to heaven. Do you believe this? I do.

    And why did Jesus say this scripture below if he didn't mean it to be TRUE!

    Matthew 7:13

    "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:"

    Jesus is telling all of us that will listen - there is no free ticket to heaven.

    God Bless
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 37
    Hi Babatope. No. Ezekiel was a contemporary of the prophet Jeremiah. He was taken with the other hostages into captivity in Babylon & his ministry was to those with him in captivity. Jeremiah in the meanwhile, ministered to the Jews in Palestine.

    So Ezekiel was around approximately 400 years after King David took the throne. Therefore Ezekiel 37:24's reference to "David my servant" can only apply to the One who would come after David, in the same family line as David, & would eventually fulfill the rest of that Scripture: "(he) shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them."

    As King David came through the line of Judah, so would the coming King be of that lineage & will not only be King, but also the "Great Shepherd of the sheep", both to the houses of Judah, Israel & also the Gentiles who are saved. And Isaiah 11:1-5 and Jeremiah 23:5,6 speak of this coming One out of Jesse & David - and His Name of course, is Jesus.

    Jeremiah 20:17

    Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.

    Job 31:15

    Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?

    Psalms 22:10

    I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

    Psalms 22:9

    But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

    Psalms 127:3

    Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

    Psalms 58:3

    The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

    Psalms 139:13

    For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

    Luke 1:42

    And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. (Speaking of Jesus)

    Isaiah 49:1

    Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels (uterus) of my mother hath he made mention of my name.

    Ecclesiastes 11:5

    As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who makes all.

    Jeremiah 1:5

    Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

    Matthew 19:12

    For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs by men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive.

  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on John 3:13
    Richard, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    I DON'T BELIEVE the scriptures can contradict themselves.

    There are hundreds of places in the scriptures that say ALL will worship GOD.

    They can not worship God if they are in Hell.

    In Ezekiel 5 and Zachariah 13 it says a third will be brought through the fire; Revelation 9:18 says a third are killed by fire, smoke and brimstone. These have to be the same third as in Ezekiel and Zachariah because verse 20 says the rest repented not. This same third is the ones in Revelation 8.

    Revelation 19 The whole chapter is about the ones called to the marriage supper. Before we can come to the supper we have to be cleansed. We are cast into the lake of fire (vs 20). We have our flesh destroyed (vs 21). God is no respector of persons. Have we ever been fearful, unbelieving, liars. Revelation 21:8 says all these will have their part in the lake of fire. Did not Christ have victory over DEATH AND THE GRAVE Revelation 20:14 says DEATH AND THE GRAVE were destroyed by the lake of fire.


    Ecclesiastes 3

    I believe ALL things are by the will of God; good and bad. His will is always carried out by man; but THE WORKS ARE OF GOD. Therefore GOD will have mercy on ALL; but in HIS appointed TIME.

    Jeremiah 2:19 Thine own wickedness shall CORRECT THEE ......

    Jeremiah 46:28 ......but I will not make a full end of thee, but CORRECT THEE in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly UNPUNISHED.

    Psalms 94:10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall he not CORRECT? ......

    FOR MEDITATION: If the damned have a natural body at their resurrection; literal fire will kill them in a few seconds. If they are resurrected with a glorified body: literal fire can't hurt them.

    SPIRITUAL FIRE CAN hurt both; natural and glorified.
  • J2row on 2 Chronicles 10
    Hello Lyn.

    Read all of Psalm 91 and Jeremiah 29:11. These promises are to all those who put there faith and hope in God.

    Also, the vaccine are not of God. On my local news station, a medical physician stated that there are particles of the corkna virus in the vaccine itself, just like the H1N1 shot for Influenza. The Johnson and Johnson shot had to put on pause due to multiple reports of patients developing blood clots.

    Luke 8:43-44 quotes, "And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched."

    Jesus is the Great Physician, not man!

    There have been reports on the news that one dose of the vaccine is no guarantee an individual may still not contract the virus. There have been multiple reports that they may have administer three phrases of the covid-19 vaccine, meaning that one shot will not be enough, and even after the third trial of shots will still not promise any results from contracting covid. This is complete medical sorcery at it's highest form.

    This verse below talks about the fall of Babulon.

    Revelation 18:23 quotes, "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived."

    The word sorceress in the Greek comes from the Greek word pharmakea, far-mak-i'-ah; from G5332; medication ("pharmacy"), i.e. (by extension) magic (literally or figuratively):-sorcery, witchcraft.

    Stongs concordance number G5332 comes from the Greek word pharmakes, far-mak-yoos'; from phrmakon (a drug, i.e. spell-giving potion); a druggist ("pharmacist") or poisoner, i.e. (by extension) a magician:-sorcerer.

    The vaccines are medical sorcery! God's advice is not to take it!
  • LACEy on Matthew 1:1
    I feel like i have a lot in common with Jesus. A lot of similarities. Does the Bible ever mention about Jesus having any romantic relationship? Or even a desire to have a romantic relationship? I've always felt different. I've never desired any romantic relationship. But I've always loved to take care of animals. Jesus loves to take care of us. I've had jobs working with animals. Then i started to see the Bible verse :Jeremiah 29:11. I thought that was god 's way of telling me that his plan for my life was to have a lifelong career working with animals. But those jobs did not last as long as I'd hoped. It felt like a peice of myself was missing. Then during this corona virus i started to write in my journal about my personal experiences. Through the process, i realized that i was answering a lot of questions I've had about myself all my life. Finally i understood me & i realized that maybe this was god's plan for me all along. His plan was for me to seek out personal information about myself. It reminds me of another Bible verse :Matthew 7:7. And that's exactly what is been doing. I was seeking out information to understand what makes me different. I was asking personal questions about myself because I'd rather understand, instead of doubt & the door was opened wide for me to see the answers to those questions. My prayer is that my story can help anyone else who feels different. Its OK to be different no matter what & it's healthy to accept yourself!
  • LACEy on Jeremiah 29:11
    I'vealways felt different. I never was attracted to anyone in a romantic way. Not ever. But i have always loved taking care of animals. I had jobs working with animals. Then i started seeing Jeremiah 29:11 everywhere. I thought it was god's way of telling me that his plans for my life were to have a long-term career working with animals. But those jobs did not last as long as I'd hoped. So now, during this corona virus pandemic, i have been writing in my journal about my own personal memories. Through this process I've uncovered some things about myself that I've always wondered about. Now i realize that this was god's plan for me all along. His plan was for me to find the personal information about my life. Another Bible verse comes to mind. Matthew 7:7. And that's exactly what I'd been doing. I was seeking out information about myself. I was asking myself & god questions about what makes me so different. And suddenly the door was opened wide for me to see the answers to these personal questions I've had about myself. All my life I've wondered & now i have my answers. My prayer is that my story can help someone else who may be feeling different. It's OK to be different no matter what!

  • Edwin L Muir on 1 Kings 18
    After 46 years of finding a grace to raise my hands in thankful worship when a gratefulness graces me to do so. Ive been so encouraged of late with Ps 141:2. And now with this bold testimony of Elijahs again.Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. My assembly does not lean readilly to this but an increase over the years, especially among the more earnest 30 to 40 aged women. We are a 1 Cor 11:1 to 16 Apostolic people. 1940s to the 80s Six of the Seven Presbyterian Wilson brothers were filled with the Holy *GHOST* with Jude 20 KJV manifestation, and started Six Churches throughout New Zealand. The reticent Seveth son, Fred Wilson was moved to plant The Church of Christ NZ Mt Roskill, which has satelite branches as does their planting in Osaka a Sister fellowship. A strong KJV base they were until Fred Wilson, the Apostles passing, later allowed the NKJV to usurp the KJV veracity, and personally I say sadly, as the fire has shown a weakening since. Verses messed with, not just spoil memory treasures but :weaken > John 1:12 to :confuse >meek with gentle to a : great travesty>Jeremiah 23 to 40 where the confusing wordoracle replacing the word burden. Removing the severe warning to any who even hint at the *ETERNAL ALMIGHTY* being able to be burdened in any way, Isaiah 40:17. Especially when such grace offered to the weakest Saint who would receive it 2 Cor 9:8. And the word may is slipping into the Benediction decree. And to put prayer into an always bowed head stance, is robbing us all of the great need to be instant in prayer, even at least one hand authoritatively raised at certain times. Form is replacing intimacy and power, which can only lead to infirmity at length, as we all are so faithfully chastened betimes. Revelation 3:19, *G* B Uall, Ps 138:8 Proverbs 8:30,31KJV. Philippians 1:6 will perform for the faithful, but those who neglect shall be counted among the lukewarm Prov 29:1.
  • Chris - in Reply on Hosea 8:4
    Thank you for that information; I would have liked to know more about the first Bible you mentioned, with the missing first page, & done some research on it. I can agree with the other reference you gave from the other Bible (i.e. Genesis 6:5 with Romans 1:28-31), even though I don't have that particular cross reference in my Bible. But to connect Jeremiah 2:23 to Genesis 3:12.13 is mystifying to me.

    Anyway, I tried to do a Cross-Reference search via Open Bible & I did find these two references, along with many others, that were cross referenced to Genesis 3:12,13. Maybe you could go back to that old Bible you used to find this reference & see where the cross reference is applied, as where the a, b, c, etc are placed are important.

    Apparently, in Genesis 3:13, the phrase "What is this that thou hast done?" is the connection to Jeremiah 2:23, "know what thou hast done". So the cross reference has nothing to do with dromedaries, but only a connection to "thou hast done". Any other connection would seem totally unreasonable, whether in context or in English usage. So, I won't pursue further your application of the dromedary to how God looks at us sinners; or even the use of other animals (fish, gnats, creeping things, etc.) for the same reason. Maybe, it might be interesting to check out your other cross references, particularly associating the various types of fornication to being the cause of other sins. As you know, I understand that fornication is just another sin along with every other sin.
  • Marilyn Taplin - in Reply on Hosea 8:4
    I have used three different Bibles. One I had to put away, it was overused and worn out and the first page is gone that tells me who printed it. That Bible gives me the cross reference from Jeremiah 2:23, "(1)How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? See thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done; thou art a swift dromedary traversing her way." A swift dromedary is a camel, a beast. And the cross-reference in my King James Study Bible takes us back to Adam and Eve. (1)Gen. 3:12, 13 "The woman thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I did eat." Husbands and wives who commit original sin cannot say they are not a false image of God for they are a false image and they break the second commandment. When God looks at them, he sees a camel. The other two do not give that reference. This explains the woe to the hypocrites that say you strain at a nat and swallow a camel. You preach about the lesser sins which are not a trespass and then you commit a trespass, swallow a camel.

    I use a Bible from NBP, The National Bible Press-Philadelphia. That one gives many references to Romans 1. Example, Gen. 6:5, (1) "God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." The cross reference (1) sends me to Romans 1:28-31."

    The other Bible I use is published by "The world Publishing Company in Ohio. It also gives many references to Romans 1. In my study notes I have recorded many cross references to Romans 1. And there are many.

    When you understand the second commandment that those given to unnatural sex are seen by God to be animals, creeping things, fish, beasts, etc, then look at how many times those are mentioned in scripture. Example: Peter fished for fish and God told him to go out into the deep and you will catch men. You have to think deeper to put men and women in the church. Beasts are mentioned over and over again in Scripture.
  • Marilyn Taplin - in Reply on Hosea 8:4
    You mention Romans 1:21-24. Verse 23 ""And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into images made like to corruptible man, and birds, and fourfooted beasts and creeping things." Those people mentioned in Romans, those given to unnatural sex, have made false images of God. They are false images of God. When God looks at them he sees, animals, beasts, birds, and creeping things. This breaks the second commandment which reads, "Ex. 20:4 "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth." God sees the sexually perverse as animals, etc. Remember when he comes to earth he states this is a generation of vipers? A viper is a snake and Jesus sees an entire generation as snakes---creeping things.

    God sees Adam and Eve as camels. Jeremiah 2:23, " How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? See thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done; thou art a swift dromedary traversing her way." A swift dromedary is a camel, a beast. And the cross-reference in my King James Study Bible takes us back to Adam and Eve. Gen. 3:12, "The woman thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I did eat." Husbands and wives who commit unnatural sex cannot say they are not a false image of God for they are a false image. God see them as a camel. They break the second commandment. When God looks at them, he sees a camel.

    What Jeremiah 29:11 means for us Christians today?
  • S Spencer On the importance of the understanding of the true vine on Psalms 1
    JOHN 15:1 Jesus says I am the "true" vine. When we think of a vine here's what we must consider; The vine sharing a common life source with the branches, The dependency of the branches on that vine, and the fact that the branches bare fruit, that's why they're there. Here is a few other verses using the idiom the vine. Psalms 80:8-9. "Israel called a vine brought out of Egypt". Isaiah 5:1-7. Jeremiah 2:21, "Israel called a degenerate vine". Hosea 10:1, "an empty vine". I believe this meant to contrast Israel mission as the vine, "HOWEVER there mission is not over" but i want to put our focus on the True vine and the difference between the two. Here is what's important and should'nt be overlooked, Israel was able to show the world then and now the Law which was holy even when executed could never change the heart of man. That's what the study of Hebrews is about. Especially Hebrews 10:16, the Lord says; I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR HEARTS. This is where the ministry of Holy spirit comes in. without him we can do nothing, you are the branches, examine your fruit. it should be wrapped in Love, not outwardly first but inwardly then expressed outwardly. That's how the Lord is forming his church to shine light on a dark world, including our nation. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 2 Tim.2:4. and this is the spirit that should reside in you now. it want be born in you later as some say. THANK YOU

    Disappointment comes to all of us as we remain in hope that something we've planned for or what has been told us, fails to materialize. It is an unnerving experience that can render some people quite helpless, but God is there for times such as these.

    Romans 12:2 says it this way: "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Even though we generally understand this verse warning the believer not to behave as the unsaved world does & adopt a new way of thinking, it also has implications to the believer not to conform to the world that sets its hope on the finite & material aspects of it, rather than putting faith in the God Who knows & does all things well.

    The believer does at times suffer disappointments, but ought to immediately look heavenward & commit himself & those matters to the Lord Who will bring it to pass in His Time, & generally in a manner above what we could have expected or planned for.

    Some other Scriptures to reflect upon: Philippians 4:6,7; Romans 8:28; Jeremiah 29:11; Psalm 73:23-26; Psalm 121:1-8; Psalm 42:11; Matthew 6:33; Proverbs 3:5,6; 1 Peter 5:6,7; John 14:27; Hebrews 13:5. And many more, to show us there is comfort & help as we wait upon the Lord with our concerns & disappointments in this life.
  • Jeremiah 23:5-6 is such an encouragement when we would despair because of all that is broken and hurting in our nation and world. The righteous Branch, from the lineage of David, the coming King who will reign and prosper, foresees Christ's second return. He will execute judgment and justice (just in Israel?) no..."in the earth," the whole earth. The whole creation groans and travails together in pain until now (Romans 8:22) and only Christ's return will relieve it. My challenge is not to be overburdened by worry and fear for what is happening, but to endure and wait patiently for Him. He will be called THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, for we have no righteousness of ourselves.

  • David W Black - in Reply on 1 John 1
    And Richard, respectfully, I made mention that angels were men or women delivering messages in the 2 and only those 2 verses you mentioned specifically. If you want to talk of angels in the recount of events at Sodom and Gomorrah, then it's a case where different subjects, different people, and different angels were present and were involved. Those were angels, heavenly beings God sent to bring Lot and his family out of the city. They also delivered a message from God. These are 2 totally different uses of the word angel.

    In Rev. 12:7-9 you refer to heaven in this use and meaning is high and lifted up spiritual place, not the Heaven God dwells. Heaven has various uses and meanings. There is no way possible that God has enemies in His Heaven, meaning where He dwells.

    Remember you're trying to correct me, believing that I don't understand the Bible, yet you argue for having sin in your life. Jesus plainly states we must sin no more. Paul stated his God given purpose in Acts 26:18 "To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me." How can one be in the light but still living in darkness?

    Jeremiah 23:21-22 "I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings." Ministry that God did not send teaches falsely that we will sin more or less until Heaven. Jeremiah tells us that marks them as false teachers.

    Ask yourself this "If sinners go to Heaven who ends up in Hell and the Lake of Fire?" Just to be clear, all have need to be saved, and all can be set free from sin here now by Jesus' power to save from sin. Those that reject Christ and His teachings will be rejected by Him.

    For years, both Israel & Judah continually turned their faces from serving God to serve idols & commit other sins. For this, they went into captivity as punishment. But the Lord promised them to bring them out of captivity & so we read (of Judah) in Jeremiah 29:10-14, where the Lord said that after 70 years He will visit them again & they will once again call upon the Name of the True God, they will pray to Him, & He will listen to Him; they will seek Him & find Him when they search for Him with all their heart.

    Interestingly, authors sometimes use the 'third person' rather than the 'first person' nouns or pronouns. We can see it in Numbers 12:1-4 when Moses uses it in his writing. Also, John 13:23, John was speaking about himself as the "disciple whom Jesus loved". Jeremiah 1:1: "The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah" but in Jeremiah 2:1, he says "the Word of the Lord came to me". And Paul in 2 Corinthians 2:2, "I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago", referring to himself.

    So, it's not unusual for authors to write in the first or third person, but the reason they do it can be varied. Maybe, they prefer that style, or to keep the focus on another in some special context, or even to avoid being too forward in their writing by using the first person pronoun. And then again, these same authors can revert to the first person elsewhere, so we can't judge them without knowing their purpose for doing so but as long as we can understand & appreciate the message they gave.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your response concerning Jeremiah 4.

    Please don't feel that you have to apologize for your disagreement with how I see these verses, as respectful discourse brings forth better understanding.

    I agree that the context must be examined and the interpretation of Scripture must be attained before any application to other Scripture is introduced and personal opinions are then formed.

    You are correct that Jeremiah 4 is talking about Israel's spiritual condition. In fact, I believe that all the way from Jeremiah 2:1-20:18 concerns prophecies that are addressed to the people of Judah and Israel.

    Through Jeremiah, God is letting His people know that they forgot what He remembers in Jeremiah 2:2-3.

    In the particular passage of Jeremiah 4:19-31, God is letting His people know that they have become "sottish" = stupid. They have even forgotten how God had once made the earth to become 'without form, and void' (covered with water) and took His light away from the heavens: How He destroyed that first earth and heaven age due to the rebellion of Satan.

    The four "I beheld" (Jeremiah 4:23-26) are the words of God Himself, not Jeremiah, and I believe that He is referring to the condition the earth is found in at Genesis 1:2. I don't think this is a future punishment of Israel, but a reminder of the great Judgment from that time period.

    The word "void" is found only twice in Scripture in the form of the Hebrew word "tohuw" meaning a 'vacuity,' an indistinguishable 'ruin.' That is Genesis 1:2 and Jeremiah 4:23.

    You answer so many questions and are a help to many people on this site, and to myself as well, many thanks.

    I don't want to bother you with two more questions, but I am typing this out, so.......

    I am wondering if you believe in three earth and heaven ages?

    Is there a time period before Satan's punishment in the Garden of Eden that you place his fall for his conflict with God?

    Thank You in advance,

    Jeremiah 29

    11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    13 And ye shall seek Me and find Me when ye shall search for Me with all your heart

    this saved me from committing suicide JESUS spoke this and voila the darkness was gone

    May HE bless you with peace love and joy

    Friend that is where you're wrong. Jesus saves from sins in the past only. If you're sinning presently, you did not get saved by God the Creator nor by His Son Jesus. And you won't need saved from future sins if you were saved and stopped the sin business. There is where false religion has failed. If you say you are a Christian, then listen to what Jesus told a man and then a woman in John.

    John 5:14 "Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee." Jesus says here "Sin no more"

    John 8:11 "She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more." And again here, "Sin no more". There's no room for big or little sin in sin no more.

    So if Jesus told both man and woman to sin no more, how much sin can you and I do after salvation? NONE.

    Jesus is bigger and more powerful than the sinning Christian experience, the get saved every night at your bedside experience, or the once saved always saved experience.

    Here is what Jeremiah records that God said on false ministry:

    Jeremiah 23:21, 22

    "I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.

    But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings."

    Any preacher that teaches you cannot be saved from is a liar and God did not send him or her. If the preacher teaches of a god that is too weak to save you from sin, they are teaching about a false god.

    So again I'll ask what I did earlier that has yet to be answered; If you could stop sinning, would you? If you say no, then you told on yourself that you'd rather sin. If you say yes, then why haven't you stopped the sin business? If you are going to spend an eternity with God in His Heaven, you stop the sin now. If you excuse sin, it tells us you aren't right in your heart.

    Where 2 or more are gathered together in Jesus name; He is in the midst of that prayer. In Jesus Name I am in agreement for the favor of the Lord to open doors for you in this move. I pray you would have His favor with all people that you encounter. I pray He would direct you to safe neighborhoods and near a church that you and your kids can grow as a Christian in.

    Every morning pray that all hindering and harassing demons be bound up by the Name of Jesus, and cast into outer darkness. Speak: Resist the devil and he must flee now! In Jesus Name.

    ((Take care of your bodies; eat and get enough rest. Ask for help. It helped me to just rent a storage unit to put non-essentials in. Give donations to an orphanage if you can.))

    We agree together, Lord, that we will submit to your guidance and help. Thank you for being my Savior in all things.

    1. Jeremiah 29:11 "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'"

    2. Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

    3. Deuteronomy 31:8 "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."

    4. Proverbs 3: 5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."

    5. Psalm 32:8 "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you."

    9. Isaiah 43:19 "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."

    11. Psalm 18:2 "The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."

    May God bless
  • Andy G van den Berg on Jeremiah 20:11
    On JEREMIAH 20:7

    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).

    Jeremiah 2:34

    Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.

    Jeremiah 19:4

    Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;

    See also Jeremiah 31:15 This happened in Bethlehem after Mary and Joseph had left to flee into Egypt because Herod was seeking to kill newborn Jesus.
  • The End of Days - in Reply on Leviticus 25
    The Election passed from the Jews, to the Gentiles; after Jesus's (Messiah) crucifixion on the Cross on Golgotha in Israel.

    There were many prophesies about him in the Torah.

    Isaiah 13:1-22

    Isaiah 21:1-

    Isaiah 23:1-18

    Isaiah 42:25

    Isaiah 45:4-5

    Jeremiah 25:29

    Jeremiah 46:1-28

    Zephaniah 3:8

    Isaiah 35:4-5

    Isaiah 53

    Isaiah 60 Gentiles Election

    What happened in the distant past; was always there and spoke about what would happen in the future.

    The plague of COVID-19, has surely speeded up the Prophesies of the End Times.

    When Jesus catches up his born again Christians to himself, and takes them into heaven:

    The Election to the Jews will be restored once more. Scripture says that God the Father and the Son of Man, are one. They are working together, and with The Spirit also. All the old prophesies will finish falling into place; as read in our daily newspapers.

    Things like the Russians helping one Palestinian nation fight against another; all fighting against Gods Covenant with Abraham; in regards to the Land. Israel will have to hold onto the Land till the bitter end (as said in the Covenant). The nations that will meet at the valley of Megiddo are ready.

    This is all written and recorded. I suggest you investigate the Bible and see for yourself what it says. In the Bible, 3 plagues come on the world from China and 2 other eastern nations. By accident or plan, I don't know. I do know locusts are covering the continent of Africa, Middle East, to the East. See? There are many signs of the times occurring together. Don't wait till after the Catching Away to decide. The Antichrist will be the most compelling figure that has ever lived

    Pray now, that Jesus will open your ears to hear, and your eyes to see it. Say it now as I pause to pray for you: Lord Jesus, anoint this one to see, and to hear Your voice. I ask it in your holy Name, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Help him read the old scriptures in a new day.
