  • Grace Talbert - in Reply on 1 John 4
    Thanks for the question. yes you have to receive jesus christ and jesus holy spirit in your heart by faith in accepting the gift of salvation. baptism by full
    decent into the water as a declaration of your burial and resurrection with christ as part of your testimony of your acceptance of christ and his spirit.
  • Mickey - in Reply on 1 John 4
    I got saved at home. I had a lot of trouble with spiritual issues after salvation. I had the Holy Spirit help me with those first weeks. I started going to church and felt strongly I should ask to be baptized. I needed it for me. Read Acts 19:1-6
    People get saved watching church, youtube or Christian broadcasts on tv all the time. Watch some Charles Stanley on Sunday tv.
    Take notes. Find a Bible teaching church. That's what I did. My most treasured friend is the Holy Spirit. Learn about Him. Turn off the tv and sit beside your bed and simply talk your heart to Jesus. Nothing will shock him. He already knows everything. :) your relationship will bloom.

    Kimora, praying, I heard in a sermon one time to picture what is going on while you are reading and ask God how you can apply it to your life, also pray before you start reading, ask the Holy Spirit to help you keep your mind on the word, I have also heard it said John is a good place to start in the Bible for a new member of Christ. God bless you and keep the faith don't give up and get discouraged, that's exactly what the devil is hoping for. Keep your eyes fixed on God. God bless you.
  • Jesse - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    None of us have the right to tell someone they are going to hell because they are Catholic and they pray to Mary, even though we are to pray to God alone through Jesus Christ. A more proper approach would have been to show them what the Bible teaches about prayer, and who we are to pray to. You asked some great questions, but did you ask them if they ever received Christ and been born of His Spirit? Even though they answered yes to all your questions, belief in itself does not save them. A person must receive Jesus Christ in order to be saved.
    Can we tell someone they will end up in hell? Yes! If someone flat out rejects Christ, we have the authority to tell them that will end up in hell.
  • Curtis Stewart - in Reply on James 1
    You cannot change your nationality, simply because you have accepted Christ. No scripture says that. And please read from verse 1 to see WHO the subject matter is..its all about the descendants Jacob(whose name was changed to "Israel.)
    If i moved to China, adopted Buddhism, did all the religious practices, etc..do i suddenly become a Chinese person? No, thats not possible. Its people who make up this nonsense in "christianity" wants to believe that they suddenly become an Israelites just because they accepted Christ. Thats nonsense. In fact, THESE are the people the Scripture refers to: Romans 9:4 "Who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption,and the glory, and the covenants,..etc
  • Alex on Isaiah 8:18
    The lord is not impotent he has a seed to sow in humanity. His children are spirits th H.G.PLURAL thats y he refers to the H.G. AS THE PROMISE. Thats y he is saying whosoever receives one such Child in my name receives me,in his name implies he is the father of the child th H.G.Thats y iSAIAH is saying behold me and the children the lord has given me are they not for signs and wonders.Revelation 12 the woman John said he saw a sign in heaven, child birth the woman etc Thats y he has to know us that when that incorruptible seed is sown in our hearts initiating a birth of Christ in us. There is a baby Christ in our future thats y he refers to himself as the son of man.Behold me and my children gbu.
  • Alex on 1 John 4
    True righteousness is being bornagain of an incorruptible seed which are the words of God ( the seeds of the sower )The bridgroom seeds which are his words Jesus said the goods seeds are the Words of GOD. THEY ARE HIS CHILDREN that are gonna be born in US via his seed. They are Emanuels that are gonna be as the stars of heaven they are the children of Promise,They are spirits Thats y he refers to the H.G.as the PROMISE. These are the incorruptible seed that are gonna take over our bodies Christ in you.My lil children of whom i travail in birth till Christ is formed in you.As we have borne the image of the earthy we must also bear ( birth ) the image of the Heavenly via that GOOD SEED TH WORD
  • Benji - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    (This continues my last comment)Also you're right. People are damned for not believing the Gospel. But you have a different Gospel. The Gospel does not include Baptism. In fact despite tons of scriptures explaining Salvation is not of works and even in Gods definition of the Gospel 1 Corinth. 15:1-4 not including Baptism. We also have an example of someone saved without Baptism. Remember the thief? "But wait he was saved in the Old covenant"...not quite. Luke was not the last we heard of the thief. Look in John 19:31-33 It shows clearly that the thief was alive AFTER Christ Death and therefore not only was he saved without Baptism but it was also in the new covenant
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Romans were not killing Christians in Paul's day
    King James Bible book of John 5:16 - And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
    John 7:1 - After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
    Acts 23:12 - And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.
    Acts 26:21 - For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me.
    1 Corinthians 16:22 - If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema (CURSED)
  • Texas Pilgrim on 1 John 4
    ACTUALLY I said I was going to refrain BUT I've got some Irish in me and always an opinion I PRAY this opinion is Spirit led! It touches on where our text goes in the 3rd verse ! I teach Sunday School adults at a local REC it's a SMALL OLD SCHOOL ANGLICAN CHURCH! Evangelical for anyone who has read the collection of books a classic ( THE FUNDAMENTALS) all believers need it! 3 REC Priest wrote articles. 3 brings a profound scary issue we see more than I have ever seen in my life! More deadly than hate of Christ! It is an implied Spiritual sleep/apathy sickness! The people are not cussing heaven!! They simply don't acknowledge Christ for who he is! Wow! Think brethren it's the real epidemic!
  • Fred Scanlan on Mark 3
    What does it mean unforgivable sin against the holy Ghost? What does it mean to bind a strong man? In the next chapter Christ says when your faith is planted in good ground ,He says some will grow 30, some 60, some 100 fold. The revelation of Jesus Christ will have free course and grow,it is Only when we deny him, and allow the strong one to bind our faith, even unto spiritual death ,that their can be no forgiveness of sin. He says to him that has,even more shall be given to Him, also It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on 1 Timothy 1
    It is beyond comprehension, to think that this spiritual war continues and will continue as long as our God allows it. It is His desire that all would be saved. I think back on the V.Nam war and the generation of men and woman who died for the love of a people suppressed by an evil govt. No matter what you hear. Even in this time we are being attacked, without the wisdom and love of our brothers who have already died, Satan,the enemy , can easily be overcome Only if man would confess sins , and rely on the captain of our salvation, our lord and savior ,Christ Jesus. At no other time, do we need some good leaders in the church! Unity under one gospel, letting the Holy Spirit do its work..
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on 1 Timothy 1
    Jesus says in the last days he will pour out his spirit. Without knowing or reading other words, its hard to know if what others are reading are the same words in kjv. know ng that the power of the spirit must have free course ,and relies on Jesus word to do it. The kjv ,is this translation . The power of the holy spirit, will move people like no other power. It is powerful, like the sword . Discipline, patience, love for God. We are at war with a divine being, Christ is our captain! It is evident that other words cause confusion. Paul speaks plainly when he says any other doctrine be accursed. That was the first thing Christ dealt with ,when e delivered evil spirits in the synagogue.
  • PC on Revelation 1
    See John 9:1-3. Christ Jesus answers this question here. See John 14:12. The "works" spoken here are demonstrations of healing done with Love and Truth through Spirit. He never used anything when he healed but God's power. If you are a believer, than you are Christ Jesus' disciple too, also written in the Scriptures. Romans chapter 8 is helpful. The Bible uses symbols so everyone can understand it from different languages at their own pace. The Christ viewed man with Love, he saw no imperfection in them. He saw man as in Genesis 1:26. God is Love, good. There is no fear. I hope this answers your question.
  • Dee - in Reply on John 15
    Please think on this. If you carry out this act you will be doing the devils will for he is a deceiver, destroyer. You feel that by doing this act it will bring about a change in your sister and niece; however, might it also bring them to a more desolate place in their lives. Will they not think that to commit suicide would be an easy way out of despair. I'm praying that you will look to Our Savior Jesus Christ and pray for your loved ones. Prayer does change and turn situations around. Pray the blood of Jesus over your loved ones and give them to Jesus to restore them and break their addictions. Jesus can and will do the impossible. Pray peace for your troubled soul as I am doing right now.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Paul was killing Christians as a Roman. He killed Stephen. He was also born Jewish. He was very learned too. After Paul's miraculous conversion he tried to connect with the Jews but they might of been wary of his sincerity. It took time. He hit the same wall repeatedly. He went away to ponder and hear from Jesus. After that he began ministry to the Gentiles. I think he had to let his old life go.
    Yes Paul killed Jews then Jesus dropped in and said Why are you persecuting Me?! He left Paul in the dark to think about it. Our president has that same carnal problem: you smack me & I smack you back twice. Jesus is Alpha & Omega. Send your email & I'll send a timetable Of Paul to you.
  • George Mayekula shimenga on 2 Chronicles 7
    God remains a living God in our daily experiences as He was in David's reign.
    Instead of worshipping the Lord as the true temple is our own mind and body to be presented whole inthe presence of the Lord people believe in mere sacrifices. Especially this moment of Corona virus and locust we need to prepare as Christians.
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    Hi Benji, I'd like to challenge your OSAS belief with what Jesus himself said in John 14:15. Do you think Jesus was being bad and legalistic by saying to keep his commandments? If a Christian is already saved and doesn't have to keep his commandments then what incentive is there to? Is there any negative consequence whatsoever if a Christian mass murders people or worships satan or does any number of despicable things? If you claim he's not a real Christian, no, he is. I know people who are 100% absolutely Christians and some turn to denounce Jesus and do horrible things. They were Christians. If all you do is believe to be saved, do you believe Hitler and most people on earth are saved?
  • David - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    Neighbor, I'll answer your questions but after that we must cease this communication because God commands me to. First with all due respect being born of water does not mean our fleshly birth that's not in the bible and that phrase has never referred to our fleshly birth. We also cannot do anything to make ourselves born again just like there was nothing we can do to be born naturally. We are born not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible and that incorruptible seed is the word of God. Lastly, people are damned if they are not baptized because they have not believed in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Lord will take vengeance on those that obey not the gospel. I will pray for you Benji.
  • Ruby on Isaiah 41
    I'm going threw alot right now. I love my lord jesus christ. This scripture has given me a piece of mind. I'm fighting breast cancer. But I have faith that god here my prayers, and heal my body. Thank you 🙏❤
  • Daniel on Revelation 20:13
    Keep in mind please may it be on earth as it is in Heaven.

    Both the quick and the dead shall be judged.

    There are two baptisms one with water and the other by receiving the most blessed of all gift the gift of the Holy Spirit and we die daily in our old ways and by the daily renewing of of our minds learn to become one body in Christ.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Matthew 22:30
    I believe after the Rapture that married couples will know each other. We will have discarded our fleshly bodies for spiritual bodies that don't corrupt. We're going to a party for the Lamb; the Bride will meet her Bridegroom.
    As I have read but not sure where, people who miss the rapture will of course have to survive 3 1/2 Years of pure hell on earth with a very mad Antichrist who demands your head. If you die saved during that time you'll join the rapture group. If you get saved & survive the 3&1/2years, their bodies won't be transformed & they will have kids.
    Question? Is your First love, Jesus Christ?
    Trust God. Trust in the Word.
  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Pagans don't own everything. I will worship God on any day I choose and will not give in to falsehoods about pagans owning this or that part of my life. I reject that notion. I believe satan wants people to back off of worshipping or celebrating Christ on certain days even when Christians celebrated it first.
  • Adam - in Reply
    The Bible doesn't say anywhere to pray to Mary. No other Christians do this, but Catholics and there's any scriptural basis for this. It specifically says not to have images or graven images (idols) and Catholic temples have idols all over the place, not just of Mary but others too. Exodus 20:4-6 2 Timothy 4:3-4
  • Rui on 1 Peter 4:17
    Judgement will start at God house. Will christians be judged based upon sins or labour? If upon sins our sins are forgiven and forgotten as the East is far from the West and I will remember them no more. So which judgement is that?

    Thanks

    Rui
  • Fred scanlan on Mark 3
    There are those who will do whatever it takes to destroy the Christ and his word here on earth. When we except Him we become new creatures, not unlike Himself. A true christian church,will not deny Christ, but will make disciples even as He did. How true it is that even your friends will deny you when you except him. Don't be surprised if even your own family denies you. Satan will use every weakness in man to destroy Gods Holy Word. Mans sinful nature is against anything that is of God. In these times God is spiritually separating the wheat from the chaff. Let Him heal you in the presence of everyone. Jesus said Don't be afraid. Don"t let Satan destroy your body and soul in hell.
  • Claudette on Psalms 150
    God of all mercy, goodness and love. Everyone has a soul. You want everyone to know you and to worship you as Lord and King. Please come into my heart and change me to become a firm believer in you, and to be more like you. Guide me to scriptures and to Christians that will help me learn more about you. Empower me to tell others about you, so that they too can come to know you as their Lord and Saviour. Amen.
    Ephesians 2;
    Psalms 145 to Psalms 150; Psalms 23. Psalms 46. Psalms 91. Deuteronomy 6: 5 to 9
  • Bobby Beeman on 2 Esdras 1
    I totally agree with you. Sad to see lives lost, but if taken rightly more Christians will also give witness on account of this sorrow. Perhaps more lives would be lost if it were not for it. But we must then say that terrorists would actually have its good effects as well. You know I believe that there are perhaps millions of souls saved from the terrorist uproars than if they had not been active. God said that there would be a remnant as a sore in the side of Israel for not destroying all of its enemies, but like God is able he will turn everything around for His glory. If I am wrong I am always open for correction.
  • Matthew 6v24through34 on Amos 6
    This was just highlighted just now, by accident as I scrolled for something else in Matthew, that NEVER happens, so it may be a sign from God. I wanted to share this with you all, please remember Christ's words! He cannot lie, AMEN! IDK what is in store, but God delivered Israel when they were between a Red Sea and their enemy behind them. How? God just decided to part the sea and make a way (out of no way)!

    Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?"
  • Loyah - in Reply on Deuteronomy 22
    Actually, the scripture is very clear of saying women should not be wearing pants. What's the point of twisting it. Remember, Christ said, anyone who break the commandments and teach others to do so as well shall be the least of the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:18-19)
