    People need to read the Bible and quit making up stuff that they think will happen because that is what is going to come down just what the Bible says! Just tell people to read John 3 16 that verse tells you in a very very simple way what you need to do to make it to Heaven! Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and if you truly believe in Him you are going to live like God wants you to! All you have to do is be a Believer, so simple! It is so easy for me to believe in God and his Son Jesus Christ just by looking at this world and everything in it! It did not just evolve like people say it was to complex for that! It was created by God and just say look at the Sun. It has burned at the same temp. from the day it was created also and has never ran out or low on fuel since that day it was created! Amen!!! I hope so much that I am pleasing God because I want to go to Heaven and just think of the best day you have ever had on earth ever and times that day by one million and that is what it will be like in Heaven and then some!! Amen!

    Comments by Alex about the Rapture, We are gona be caught away but its in the spritual realm ,Remember John said he was in the Spirit on the LORDS day implies he was in the Spiritual realm but he was actually on the Isle of Patmos according to his body.If we walk in the spirit we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. When Jesus said unless you receive the Kingdom of God as a lil Child you will in no wise enter there in. The Kingdom of God will come as the new birth, a lil Child.The very fact that the Kingdom of God is gonna come and be with in us ( sinners ) is the real rapture and its gonna come as a birth, a heavenly birth as we have borne the image of the EARTHY we must also bear ( birth ) the image of the heavenly a new innerman which has to be born in us via that good seed the WORD. This is the real rapture that Jesus spoke about when he said unless ya receive the Kingdom of God as a lil child you will in no wise enter there in, he was in essence saying we are gona birth our king and thats y Jesus always refered to himself as the Son of Man . There is BABY Christ in our future which can only come via his seed the WORD and that child is the Kingdom ,The Child of Promise. Thy kingdom come thy will be done is in essence th Rapture but it comes as a birth ,unless ya receive the KINGDOM OF GOD AS A LIL CHILD IS THE RAPTURE BUT ITS ALSO A BIRTH . A heavenly birth. We don't need to go anywhere Jesus plainly tells us the Kingdom is gona be within you, Its simply in the spritual realm as Jesus said that which is Born of the SPIRIT IS SPIRIT THATS THE H.G. the Kingdom of God and unless ya receive the KINGDOM OF GOD as a lil child. A lil child implies a birth . After the woman gives birth in verse 10 John says Now is come Salvation and the Kingdom of God and the power of his Christ ( her child ) which is the H.G. that is gona rule all nations as Jesus spoke about. When he the spirit of truth is come which is the H.G. TH MANCHILD IMPLING MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD. GB

    There are many changes to come! Jesus said you are a royal priesthood, a chosen generation. In all your ways acknowledge Him ,he will guide your path. Be anxious for nothing! Don't worry about tomorrow, it will take care of itself. Have a great DAY!

    In the Greek the word [stedfastness] is [sterigmos] which means; established, strong, fixed, solid. And you can fall from being solid in Jesus or the Word. Read 2 Peter 2: 15-22 where people who have known the way have turned and followed after Baal. Their condition is now worse than before.

    The Bible and the word of God is laid out in the form of the tabernacle or a cross. (Exodus 25).The shadow and figure of the Stature of Jesus Christ is unveiled in the detailed blueprint of the Old Testament Tabernacle, known as Moses' Tabernacle. This was the first Tabernacle, and it was a picture of the Second Tabernacle, the LORD Jesus Christ; therefore, we can find all Spiritual Principles of Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge hidden within it. There are 7 pieces of furniture in the tabernacle. The first is the Brazen Altar where the sacrifices took place. It is picture of Christ sanctifying blood sacrifice on the cross. Next in the courtyard is the laver (wash basin)or (baptism). This is God's beginning principle of growth. Every believer or nation must experience the blood, fire and water (baptism) which together makes up the foundational part of the cross. Next is the Holy place wherein is the altar of incense(prayer) , the candlesticks (knowledge, understanding, wisdom), and the table of showbread (Christ's governmental strength). then in the Holy of Holies is the ark of the covenant and the mercy seat. This is God's throne room where HE promises to commune and meet with us. SO when you read anything in the bible the word will fit on the cross(tabernacle) and teach us something specific. The old testament had a natural tabernacle but Jesus is a picture of a more perfect tabernacle.(Hebrews 9:2-11) We can learn how to grow by studying the meaning behind the furniture in Moses' tabernacle and what it represents. (Tim 3:16,17)

Blow her mind father blow her mind for the loving way and attention this man of God will give her for treating her like the princess she is. In the name of Jesus. Amen and amen!!!!!!!
  • Gary Lee - in Reply on Matthew 24
    Matthew 24:40-41 and Luke 17:34 is definitely talking about the rapture. The rapture is when Jesus will appear in the sky to catch away the "OVERCOMERS". Not all Christians are overcomers and go up in the rapture. Overcomers are those Christians who have crucified and overcome the flesh (Galatians 5:17-19) and rules over their carnal mind, will and desires of the flesh (Romans 8:7-9). This is the principle of growing in God (2 Timothy 3:16,17). Some will be left behind to go through the first half of the tribulation period (3.5 yrs). Those left behind are saved but haven't crucified their flesh enough to be overcomers. This is not the second coming of Jesus where everyone will see Him. The rapture takes just before the tribulation and just after the Antichrist is revealed on the earth. The Antichrist is Judas Iscariot .
  • Gary Lee - in Reply on Genesis 22
    At death, a sinner suffers a threefold separation of his being:

    his body goes to the grave, his soul goes to hell (sheol), and his spirit ascends upward to God. [Ecc 3:21]. Each sinners death loosens another wicked spirit which increases the number of spirits that war against Christians. Ghosts are demons meant to "copy" the spirit of an unbeliever. A believer (saved sinner's) spirit can't return to earth. The body goes the grave and the spirit and soul returns to God.

    In the Old Testament Dispensation, upon the death of a believer, his body went to the

    grave, and his soul and spirit went to Paradise, also called death and Abraham's bosom. After the Blood of Jesus was applied to the Mercy Seat in Heaven, the spirit and soul of a believer could go directly into the presence of the LORD (II Corinthians 5:8).

    Hi Kevin. If you are referring to "let us make an in our image" then God was talking to JESUS and the Holy Spirit. In the Godhead you have the Father, Word and the Holy Spirit an these three are one. So God is 3 but operates as one as all 3 agrees when something is done. In vs 28 he says to Adam male and female to take care of all living things (animals and plants) as we know them today. So Adam male and female was the first humans created on this earth. If you wondering about Genesis 2vs7 then God is just restating how Adam was formed in Genesis 1:26. At this stage Eve was still not visible to Adam. Eve was later formed out of Adam's rib and revealed to him but she was part of him up till then. You could say that Adam was both male and female when God created him. Be careful to keep it in context. This might give creedance to the LGBTQ community stance though.
  • Gary Lee - in Reply on Luke 11:13
    You can lose your salvation if you turn and reject the truth and follow after Balaam. Read (2 Peter 2:15-22) For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than , after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. Remember the devil walks around like a roaring lion try to devour whom he can. Trying to take the righteous off the path and he sometimes does succeed. That's why it is important to grow daily in the knowledge of Jesus Christ so that we are able to withstand the wiles of the devil. Let yesterday's victory be a foundation of faith to stand on so that we can build on it today and become stronger for tomorrow we will be tested once more.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 John 3:14
    This whole chapter is on God's Love for us & its implication & application for us. As John states in verse 1, that God's incomprehensible Love brought us into the family of God. And because of our special relationship to Him, we look longingly to Him awaiting the day of Jesus' Return. As well, John says, that love we have for God, that which compels us to live for Him & not live in sin, is also the love we need to have for one another.

    And this love must be genuine, looking to another's needs, even to the laying down our lives for another. And Song of Solomon 3:14, comes as a challenge to our hearts: we think that the love we have for God because of His Love for us is clear proof for our entrance to Heaven. Whereas we ought to consider that if that love for God is real, then that love has to be shown to one another, for therein is the final proof that this is indeed the love that God looks for: the real love for God that is in us, that is demonstrated to another as well. When this is apparent, then our release from eternal death to eternal life is proven. A lot like Faith & Works: Faith does indeed save us, but if there's no proof of that faith (by works), is that faith genuine?

    For if we love not our brother then our love is not genuine towards God & we need to be examining what has taken place in our hearts that has caused this spiritual & mental anomaly. As John said in 4:20, "If a man say, I love God, and hateth (despises, disregards or holds in lower esteem) his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?" This comes as a great challenge to all of us - particularly that we don't harden our hearts when there are those in the Church & around us in such great need.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 15:5
    I understand the order of appearance as follows (aside from the two Marys, Joanna & other women) from 1 Corinthians 15:5: Peter first saw the empty tomb. Then all them together (the twelve, which included Judas' replacement, Matthias). After that over 500 of Christ's followers. Then again all the apostles including James saw Jesus & finally Paul himself as the last apostle who had that encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus.

  • Alex - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    Alex's comments about the Thief on the Cross. He was baptised when he heard Jesus Words, remember Jesus said you are made Clean by hearing My Words . That i have spoken unto you, Aka as the Water of the WORD . That living water That Jesus explained to the woman at the well. Yes the well is deep . But Jesus was the WORD made flesh and blood thus its no wonder that the thief was made clean by hearing the WORD. Remember one of the writters says the Church has to be made clean by the water of the Word, that living water is simply the H.G . Remember John said when Jesus spoke of that living water it was the Spirit he speake of. The H.G. was not yet given b/c that Christ was not yet glorified. Thats y the Priest use to apply the blood to the tip of the right ear, It was prophetic that when the lamb of God wd come we wd be made Clean by hearing his Words which ARE spirit and life . the H.G. Our right ear is simply hearing and understanding his voice. divine understanding ,Flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you but my father in heaven which is divine understanding that living water etc. That good seed is sown in our hearts by hearing, As Mary was not penatrated by anyman but only by hearing was the good seed sown in her Womb Thats y she said be it unto me according to thy Word then was the word made flesh and blood, The living word not the written word ,as there is no blood in the written word but only in the living WORD. When Jesus said my words are spirit and life thats the living word that was made spirit and life, flesh and blood.But he wants to impregnate all of humanity with his precious seed the living Word. Thats y the prophets saw the world in travail and birth pains simply b/c of that good seed the Word ,the field being the world, our hearts being womb that is gonna birth a BABY CHRIST which is the H.G. the Child of PROMISE She brought forth a man Child that is gonna rule ALL NATIONS. WHICH IS TH H.G. that Child of promise thus he is trul the son of man
  • Gary Lee - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    Hi John. You are correct to a degree but you don't have the complete picture. True, the thief on the cross wasn't baptized. He only received the blood. To this day that thief will remain a baby Christian as he never had the opportunity to grow in God. There are different levels in God's kingdom meant for different degrees of saved Christian. The thief went to paradise. this is only one level you can grow to in God. But if you want to receive the prize of the high calling (Philippians 3:14 and 1 Cor 9:24) you have to go beyond the gifts which is the common salvation (Romans 10:9-10) and grow according to the tabernacle which includes baptism.When you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour according to Romans 10:9-10. He washes away our sins and creates a new BABY heart within our old heart. This NEW heart is perfect and cannot sin. (Ephesians 4:24) Out old heart doesn't disappear automatically or immediately (Mark 7:21). The journey now starts where the old heart has to die and the new heart has to grow. Only as we crucify the old heart (the flesh) daily can the new heart grow within us. Paul said die daily". This is why many Christians still exhibit anger, resentment, gossiping, betrayal" they haven't repented and died daily. It is a process of repenting, not an instantaneous gift of the spirit.

    This is the principal of growing in God according to Moses' tabernacle which has 7 pieces of furniture and is laid out in the form of a cross. It is a picture of the more perfect tabernacle which is Jesus. (Hebrews 9:11). First is the brazen altar where the sacrifices were slain (Jesus) A picture of accepting Jesus blood sacrifice. After the Sacrifice was slain, Fire came forth from God and lit upon the sacrifice, which is a picture of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and Fire. Also, in the outer Court was the Brazen Laver where the Priests washed once, outwardly, which is a picture of Water Baptism in the Name, Death, and Life of Jesus Christ. The Priests returned to this Laver, daily, t
  • Chris - in Reply on Exodus 16:29
    For the Jews & those today (me excluded) who believe in maintaining the Sabbath Day, then there's no stipulation about remaining in one's house. The Jewish leaders of Jesus' day decreed that a Jew could walk (not ride a donkey) from their 'city limits' as far as 2000 cubits (= 3,500 ft, or 0.6 mile) on the Sabbath. Then some others proposed a further law: that if there were houses within that distance of .6 mile, then if the distance between each house was no more than 112 ft, then one could keep walking. This means, if a Jew planned his trip well, he could actually travel between two cities or communities if there were some appropriately placed houses in-between.

    So if you believe that you need to "keep the Sabbath", then there should be no problem about moving about, whether around your home or within the city. The key feature of the Sabbath was that no manual work was to be performed or any engagement in buying or selling of goods. And certainly in an emergency or doing another some good, Jesus gave the authority to reach out & to work (Matthew 12:10-14).

We today can return daily to the altar (repentance) and the laver (baptism) daily to be washed (cleansed) of our attitudes and flesh and receive fresh fire from God.
  • John - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    Linda, to answer your question simply put, no. Jesus said in (John 3:3) "Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he can not see the kingdom of God." meaning that we must some how be reborn to go to heaven. Some will assert that (John 3:5) shows that we must be baptized by water, and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit to be saved, This is easily refuted with scripture. Remember God cannot lie (Titus 1:2) Therefore, Scripture cannot contradict itself. If God required baptism for salvation, then Jesus Christ lied to the thief on the cross. (Luke 23:43) Jesus IS God (John 1:1). He CANNOT lie. God made the way to heaven very simple, so easy that even a child can understand and accept. It is not based on our works (Ephesians 2:8-9) but on our faith in Christ and His FINISHED work on the cross. We must first understand that we are a sinner in need of a Savior. (Romans 3:23) ... When we see that there is a penalty for our sin. (Romans 6:23) That we cannot pay the penalty on our own, but Jesus Christ, loved us so much that He came, lived the perfect life, fulfilled the law, and became sin for us on the cross to pay our sin debt for us. (Romans 5:8) Then believing the gospel by faith, we accept the GIFT of God, confess our belief in Him, and ask Him to save us. (Romans 10:9-13) There are MEN who will take God's gift and want to say that in order to receive it you will need to do this or that, but whenever we add WORKS to the equation the GIFT ceases to be a gift. Repentance is a turning from self and a turning toward Christ.

    As was said of Jesus, that He would have His heritage in Eve, of Abraham, of Jesse, made like unto his brethren, the root and offspring of David, tells me that as Mary had this Divine Seed developing in her, being nourished, experiencing all the normal feelings & movements of the Babe within & even bringing Him out in the normal way, is proof sufficient that this Holy Seed brought into the world by Mary had every right & claim to the Davidic line through Mary (& Joseph).

    Does then the absence of a 'bloodline' preclude Jesus being what was claimed of Him? Would it be sufficient that a wholly Divine Jesus, born through a human agent, could be included in the lineage all the way back to Adam? Or, if there was a "bloodline" through Mary, would Jesus have a sinful nature as well? Aspects worthy of some thought to Jesus' qualification not only to be wholly Divine but also to His human descendancy.

    Thanks for your input Bendito. The reference to 'seed' of course does mean as you suggested, but we have to allow for a wider meaning as prescribed from the Hebrew: which is, 'zera', & this includes 'child, descendant, posterity, race, etc.', as seen in other Scriptures showing this (e.g. Genesis 12:7 & others).

    So we could read as you state that the Embryo that was Jesus in Mary's womb, was of her seed coupled with the Divine, or as I believe, that she only carried God's Seed to be brought out into the world. If she supplied her seed for the Word of God to become flesh, then Jesus would have been tainted with the sinful nature of humanity as I don't believe that Mary was sinless. To say that Jesus wouldn't have been so tainted then denies the transmission of the sin nature throughout humanity. Now I know that some believe that Jesus was born with a sin nature & during His testings with Satan & throughout His earthly sojourn, He resisted Satan so that He wouldn't feed that Nature & commit sin. I don't know if you subscribe to this view, but I believe that Jesus didn't have such a nature but His testings from Satan were to instil such a nature in Him as was done to Adam & Eve.

    You also state: "Else he would have not truly been the Son of Man, but another life form." I couldn't quite get my head around this one: I understand that a human being can only be one from both the male & female contributions. If one part was of the Divine & the other human, does this also constitute a human being? Or, if both parts were Divine, could a human be formed in such manner? Or seen in another way, if God could create Adam from dust & Eve from his rib, can God not produce another human only from His compilation of seed(s)?

    Hi David. A picture of salvation is like when you was a little walking across the street with you parents, you're in the middle and both parents have you by the hand, "they're holding your hands you're not holding theirs" . Jesus says in John ch 10; I give them eternal life and THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH, no man can pluck them out of my hand, my father which gave them me is greater than all and no man can pluck them out of my Father's hand. salvation is a gift for those who believe, but if you try to add to it you are attempting to hold their hand and you will always question your grip.

    Be strong and hold on to HIS hands, because Jesus Christ will never let your hands go. I am not sure what exactly is going on in your life, but just know you are loved by Our Father in Heaven. Remember in the beginning of the bible where God said "Let there be" and it was so? Yah or our Lord gives us that same power because we are made in His image. Sometimes we all wonder what is taking God so long to answer our prayers. I have learned that it is not my timing, and my ways are not His ways. I have learned to let things go and give it to the Almighty. We always want to be in control, because we often think that we know all the answers to life. We all need to step back and let God/Elohim take control of the wheel. Wow was that hard for me and that is my biggest struggle, but I am doing it, giving it all to Yah, just like I pray you and others are. Stay safe and may the Lord bless you and keep you and give you strength and give you peace. Shalom.......blessings and praises to Yah

    Comments by Alex on Ezekiel 18 : 20 which is True as it gets , the best scripture for Original sin,But what Ezek. does not tell ya is Israel cd not keep the law for long Father and Son a like they both died in their own sins, But God Promised them if they wd keep the law they wd not die.But here is where Original sin comes in, Original sin made them ALL VERY CORRUPTIBLE, Thats y God called then backsliding Israel. There was none righteous no not one .the law was the ministration of death . But if they wd keep the law they wd live but they wd get bit Remember the serpents ,God told em to build a bronze serpent and if they wd behold that bronze serpent they wd live EVEN THO THEY GOT BIT. Which was prophetic of Christ that wd be lifted up so that if we sin there wd be no condemnation . God knew that Israel wanted to keep the law but b/c of their old adamic nature ,satans head, Original sin made them corruptible and thats y we must be BORNAGAIN of an incorruptible seed etc. Even by the words of God ,But Ezek was so right every person died for their own sins. But b/c of Original sin they were easily corrupted which was Adams stain and spot . But when that new covenant is mediated it gonna be impossible to sin as them that are born of God CANNOT SIN, which is our new heart and new spirit. Christ in us. he is our bronze serpent ,If i be LIFTED UP i will draw ALL men unto me. The spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death, Snake bite and death. What the law cd not do in that it was weak thru the flesh God had to send his son to condemn sin in the flesh via that good seed th word the contents of that book. In the volume of the book it is written of ME i delight to do thy will O GOD...TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SIN THUS FULFILLING THE LAW. k later
  • Chris - in Reply on Job 36:9
    In Malachi 3:8-12, Israel had defaulted in their tithing, by holding back more than they should have. This was very wrong, as tithes at that time that were brought into the 'storehouses' were for the feeding of the priests who were not given land to cultivate & grow crops & were dependent on others for this need. God is saying here, that even if the people performed this commandment & duty fully, with a ready obedient heart, He would reciprocate with blessing, more than they could comprehend. Their fields would flourish & the nations would have the witness of the God of Israel's Love & Blessings upon His people.

    In Ephesians 1:3-14, the blessings that come upon the Christian are dependent on what God has done in our lives & what He gives to secure our salvation: they are spiritual blessings which of course, can certainly be seen materially as well but not always. What Israel failed to receive because of their disobedience, the Christian gains because of his position in Christ Jesus & His cleaving unto Him.

    So the similarities are there by the receipt of God's blessings, but the difference I see, is that those in Christ, receive doubly to what Israel could ever receive, blessings that come from an eternal, joyful, familial relationship to the Godhead. Where Israel still had to sacrifice each year for their sins, we have One Who has paid sin's price for us. Where Israel's hope lay in their faltering obedience to God's Commands & trust in God to help them, the Christian's sure hope lies only in Jesus Christ & His Spirit Who guarantees our salvation & position in Christ; we naturally demonstrate our faith & love for Him in doing all this for us, which we could never hope to do ourselves.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Deuteronomy 18
    My belief is that Mary, by the grace of God, supplied the ovum necessary for the Word to become flesh. Else he would have not truly been the Son of Man, but another life form.

    According to scripture, Jesus Christ would be the seed of the woman, the root of Jesse, the seed of Abraham, made like unto his brethren, the root and offspring of David.

    And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (Genesis 3:15)

    Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)

    And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. (Isaiah 11:10)

    For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. (Hebrews 2:16-17)

    I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (Revelation 22:16)
