    This could be useful. "You (us) shall know the truth, and the truth sets us free." I'm thinking that: Not people, but spirits are on assignment in a room dedicated to Gods Word: the King James Bible.

    So like last night I was about to go to bed, and the Holy Spirit said "contention".

    If we read Psalms enough, we will see that King David occasionally was victim temporarily to sadness, anger at enemies, King Sauls relentless pursuit and many other issues. We work this stuff out by prayer and sometimes speaking the truth in the spirit of love, for the brethren.

    Here is the origin of the spirit of contention. We need to recognize it's been busy in here for weeks. Lord, make me an instrument of Your Peace. Amen. Let's let the Spirit of Christ rule over our hearts.

    Spirit of Jealousy: Manifestations:

    Revenge-Spite, Anger-Rage, Jealousy, Hatred, Cruelty, Strife, Contention, Competition, Envy, Cause Divisions Scriptures; murder

    ( Genesis 4:4-6; 37:3,4,8; Proverbs 6:34; 10:12; 13:10; 14:16-17,29-30; 22:24-25; 27:4; 29:22-23; Numbers 5:14,30; 1 Thessalonians 4:8; Song of Solomon 8:6; Galatians 5:19)

    Roots... "The Works of the Flesh," Galatians 5:19-21.

    "By their fruits you will know all men," Matthew 7:20. According to Matthew 6:10; 11:12; 12:29; 16:18; 18:18; 28:18

    BIND= Spirit of jealousy

    LOOSE= Love of God, 1 Corinthians 13; Ephesians 5:2

    Testimony: as a kid I lived in a household divided some ways. Me and my Dad were placid and peaceful. He was full-blood Cajun. I was a negotiator. My sister, the silent one. The others were fighting lots. Dynamics awful to live in. But you learn skills that are useful later on.

    Michael the Archangel and Satan (a fired Archangel) contended for the body of Moses. Michael said, "THE LORD REBUKE THEE." Satan let go.

    We have to recognize it for what it is. Let's all pray for these Comment Rooms. Lift them up and ask the Lord to bless them; attract unbelieving seekers of salvation in Peace.

    Jackyln, I see it this way, if we want to see that an abortion being supported here, then we can, as we can do with other Scriptures that teach on matters of theology or on human living. We can take the many instructions by God to Israel to go to war & wipe out people, including women & children. Does this make God some type of vicious ogre keen on destruction? Or is there another reason for such an instruction? Does it then given us licence to kill another because we believe that in doing so we fulfil God's requirement to destroy all who oppose Him or us?

    If murder is sin, & I believe you will concur, then it comes down to whether the seed (or, the life) in the womb can be subjected to murder or not. And this of course, is the core of the matter between the pro-life & pro-choice adherents. Govts. walk a fine line: if they are too harsh & strong on one issue, then their tenure is very short at the polls. So they try & appease both sides by setting a last date for the termination of the foetus, hoping that the one side will be convinced & the other side can proceed with removal of the foetus to their relief. So the question is: at which point does life begin?

    With that in mind, that murder is sin, I understand Numbers 5:28 to read: "However, if the woman is innocent of the charge by not being affected by the 'potion' given her, then she is no longer to be condemned & her womb will be healthy to conceive." You're thinking in terms of a 'seed' already there to become a foetus, whereas I see that there is no seed, rather an instruction that the woman's womb will be healthy (unlike the guilty woman's) to be able to produce babies. If the word 'miscarry' is seen elsewhere, then of course, it's up to those translators. Looking at the Hebrew for this verse, "and shall conceive seed": 'she shall be free & may conceive children' - she may fructify (to bear fruit) or become pregnant.

    The point of this passage is: the state of the womb, not whether she was carrying a seed.

    The word 'Amen' is a Hebrew word, essentially meaning "so be it". It was first used in Scripture in Numbers 5:22 & many times after.

    We generally tag it onto the end of our prayer, not because it is normally done this way, but because we are affirming before God that what we have prayed (whether praise to God or requests), is our affirmation of what we've said. And when we also pray in Jesus' Name, we're stating before God, our affirmation is in the authority of Jesus Name that we use to approach His Throne & so we declare confidence in our prayer & in God Who hears & answers prayer ( 1 Jn 5:14).

    It's true that Numbers 5 has no mention of pregnancy, but in spiritual terms the bitter water also represents the curse of enmity because like water or waters we are all swimming together in it and also in Revelations. The dirt or soil in the Holy tent was considered sacred since it was under the red dyed rams skins. The swelling of belly rot of the thigh was a way of finding a woman's secret.

    Numbers 5:21 and 27: Womb shrink and abdomen to swell - is the curse to cause a woman to miscarry or to be infertile?
  • Jamaica on Deuteronomy 4:5
    Deuteronomy 4:5, I keep seeing this in dreams and when I pray I feel that five hundred and forty five means something, and this verse is all I can think, it all must mean (in dreams I see the time 545 and then I see room numbers 545). I keep reading it but I don't know why it sticking out to me. I don't know what it means!
  • Garyloyd on John 8
    These men trying to set up Jesus by bringing a woman (this word means married) wanting to catch Him with the Law of Moses Deut. 22 stoning law for a virgin. This woman would fall under the Law of Numbers 5 and that's not stoning so I think Jesus was writting in the dirt Numbers 5. Now the Roman law would throw Jesus in Jail because you can't. Stone anyone unless it goes through the Roman court. So what they were trying to do is get Jesus in trouble. Then when they started leaving I think Jesus started writting their sins in the dirt.
